UNLV School of Medication Awarded Grant to Continue Study on Car Injuries

The UNLV School of Medicine Department of Surgery was recently awarded a grant from the Nevada Department of Public Security to continue its work towards understanding and avoiding traffic-related injuries and deaths in Nevada.

Dr. Deborah Kuhls, teacher of surgical treatment, and co-investigator Laura Gryder used previous grant funding to create a comprehensive database from 2005-2015 Nevada Department of Transportation crash data and associated info from injury centers statewide.

The current $235,000 grant will enable researchers to continue their work, which includes introducing and examining information from the past two years and examining present pedestrian safety education efforts.

“This data enables us to analyze crashes and risk-taking behaviors in relation to difficult medical expenses and outcomes, and it likewise contributes required background to support safety related legislation,” said Dr. Kuhls.

According to researchers, deaths and injuries from vehicle-related crashes have actually risen steadily in Nevada since 2009. Amongst the task’s findings to this day:

The highest portion of traffic casualties for those admitted to a Nevada trauma center in between 2005-2015 were from pedestrian crashes (7.5 percent), followed by motorbike crashes (4.3 percent) and motor vehicle crashes (2.6 percent).
Analysis from the database shows rear-seated teenager passengers are 70 percent most likely to not wear a seatbelt than those in the front seat. After a crash, they have higher accumulated hospital charges, spend more days in the healthcare facility, and more days in the ICU than those using seat belts.
Crash-trauma information from 2012-2014 reveals that average hospital charges for a moped crash are $8,120 more for riders who don’t wear helmets compared to helmeted riders. Injuries to the extremities and to the head and neck are most typical. Moped riders in Nevada are not currently required to use a helmet.
Around 30 percent of pedestrian crash patients brought to a Nevada injury center were crossing the street poorly. They spent more days in the health center and accumulated significantly greater median healthcare facility expenses ($113,475 vs. $52,727) compared to pedestrians who were injured while crossing properly.

“By performing this research study, we can continue to supply essential info to legal, community, and state companies,” Gryder stated. “We can utilize the information to establish the most proper, targeted injury prevention interventions to make the biggest possible effect on the lives of citizens of our state.”

O.J. Simpson on parole will continue to enthrall

Image

Jason Bean/ The Reno Gazette-Journal by means of AP

Former NFL football star O.J. Simpson goes into for his parole hearing at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock on Thursday, July 20, 2017. Simpson was founded guilty in 2008 of employing some males he barely knew, including 2 who had guns, to retrieve from 2 sports antiques sellers some products that Simpson said were taken from him a decade earlier.

O.J.’s back in the limelight. And do not anticipate him to leave anytime quickly.

More than 20 years after O.J. Simpson was acquitted for the brutal murders of his ex-wife and her good friend, America remains as riveted as ever by the disgraced football star’s perpetual legend.

An Oscar-winning documentary and miniseries on the horrific criminal offenses and the ensuing media circus enthralled audiences last year.

Thursday provided another historical TV moment for “The Juice” as his parole hearing controlled the news cycle– similar to the historical low-speed white Bronco chase and the verdict that divided the country.

That 1995 acquittal in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman– enjoyed by more than 150 million individuals, an audience far greater than the Super Bowl– was a “flashbulb” minute, says American University teacher W. Joseph Campbell.

“It’s one of those uncommon moments when you keep in mind precisely where you were and what you were doing when you heard the news,” stated Campbell, who penned, “1995: The Year The Future Began,” with a chapter on Simpson’s case.

“It’s almost like he’s burned into our memories,” stated David Gerzof Richard, founder of Big Fish, a Boston-based public relations company.

Richard stated the double-murder case remained in the national headings continuously and “ended up being such a part of everyone’s lives.”

“It’s actually entered into our news-consuming culture,” he said.

Simpson’s hair is now gray, he’s 70, he’s spent the last 9 years behind bars for a Juice memorabilia-related armed robbery, and the general public’s fascination with him hasn’t waned. His parole hearing made him once again the star on the little screen.

There’s a “gauzy nostalgia that welcomes the 1990s,” Campbell stated, and people remember it as an excellent decade with a booming economy and the development of the internet.

“The Trial of the Century,” Campbell said, “has some linkage to that time, to the nostalgia that welcomes that time.”

Other factors behind the Simpson fascination, Campbell stated, was the NFL star’s “stunning fall from grace” and how a spectacular defense and a bumbled prosecution helped him beat the double-murder rap.

“He had all of it at one time,” Campbell stated. “He was a star expert football gamer. He made the Hall of Fame. He was a sports TELEVISION analyst, a pitchman, a so-so motion picture actor. He had it all. He has 4 kids. He married two attractive females.”

Sprung from jail, Campbell predicted, O.J. as a “media-driven, pop culture phenomenon” will emerge again.

A Simpson associate informs U.S.A Today that a complimentary O.J., with an NFL pension to draw on, plans to move to Miami and play a great deal of golf.

However is it even possible for him to stay out of the spotlight? Will he be able to withstand the inescapable reality show provides? Will there be yet another courtroom drama? Or both?

We’ll learn soon enough.

Will Medical Office Continue to Support Abundant Offers?

As foreign financiers, REITs and other institutional purchasers rush to scoop up medical office building (MOB) area and establish immediate care and other ambulatory care centers, the growing swimming pool of purchasers competing for a limited variety of available residential or commercial properties is driving capitalization rates lower.

Interest in U.S. medical office from international investors is on the rise as they look for diversification and yield plus a hedge versus political and currency risk, according to JLL Handling Director Mindy Berman. Chinese capital alone represented $2.6 billion in 2016 in sales of North American healthcare residential or commercial properties, including the $930 million investment by Cindat and Union Life for a 75% stake in a portfolio of Brookdale elders housing and Genesis Health care post-acute care facilities owned by Welltower.

“It’s early innings, but it’s a hot subject with investors from Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and the Americas for this formerly ‘alternative’ possession class,” Berman stated. “JLL thinks the time is ripe for a significant medical office acquisition by a foreign investor, provided prior financial investment activity in massive U.S. seniors housing.”

Chad Vanacore, REIT expert with Stifel Nicolaus & & Associates, pointed to a “headline-grabbing win” for Healthcare Trust Of America Inc. (NYSE: HTA), which became a dark-horse winning bidder of a $2.75 billion portfolio of 78 high-quality properties totaling 6.1 million square feet, consisting of a strong pipeline of assets under advancement.

Similarly, Milwaukee-based Physicians Real estate Trust’s revealed purchase of 18 MOB facilities in 8 states for about $735 million last month includes prime residential or commercial properties such as Baylor Cancer Center in Dallas, an on-campus 460,000-square-foot medical workplace, which accounted for $290 countless the portfolio sale. Physicians Realty (NYSE: DOC) expects an unlevered cash yield of 4.7%.

“Medical office buildings have such strong fundamentals,” stated HTA CEO Scott Peters, keeping in mind that the deal closed at a 5-5.25% cap rate. “Cap rates for MOB continue to boil down since of the stability of the earnings, the credit reliability of the renters, strong tenancies, and the whole secret to realty, which is same-store development on an annual basis.”

MOB fundamentals are a lot more beneficial based on returns over the past five to 10 years, Peters stated, including that re-tenanting costs for standard workplace are higher relative to MOB.

“We’re not there yet, however as a growing number of transactions occur and MOBs get more acknowledgment, you’ll see cap rates come down the to the mid-4%, where they’re comparable to convention office,” he included.

“Physicians stay, they restore, they get paid in carpet,” Peters said. “Health care systems do not move when they have actually developed where they wish to be and they’re typically great for 15-20 years.

Health care REITs were 2nd just to self-storage in compounded yearly returns over 10 and 15 year as of 2015 at 12.9%.
