As a result, the news has been spreading rapidly through border cities.According to sources in the area, local people can scarcely believe news that South Korea has elected a female president. One such source from Hyesan in Yangkang Province told Daily NK today, “We learned that Park Geun Hye was fighting the election from Rodong Shinmun, but could not imagine there was a way for a woman to actually become president. It’s a topic of conversation, and that’s why it’s spreading like wildfire.”“There are people asking how it is that the daughter of the dictator who annihilated democracy, someone who a majority of South Koreans once opposed, could become president,” the source went on. A second source from Shinuiju confirmed that Chinese television was the key to their knowledge of Park’s victory as well, explaining, “The news about Park’s win is going around this city because of those people who watch the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV. People knew her name because people like Rodong Shinmun kept mentioning it, which meant that people came to assume she was not a normal figure.” News NewsEconomy There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest News Facebook Twitter

Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Falls Free Coalition have joined forces with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and the Falls Free® Coalition to reduce the incident of falls among seniors. While falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injury for people 65 years of age and older, they are not an inevitable part of aging. This year’s Fall Prevention Awareness Day theme, Take a Stand to Prevent Falls, seeks to raise awareness about how to prevent fall-related injury among older adults.“Adults ages 65 and older in Vermont saw 5,023 emergency room visits from falls in 2010 resulting in 1,600 hospitalizations, and 120 fatalities,” said Julie Desrochers, state Falls Prevention Program Coordinator. “We can change this by bringing greater attention to the many preventive measures that can be easily employed to keep our seniors safe.”The Health Department is working with the state Falls Free Coalition as well as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to roll out a new falls prevention/self-management program. The Fallscape program trains older adults to use everyday situations and tools to prevent falls- and stay in their homes for longer.The training is delivered by EMS personnel in the home and consists of screening, a motivational interview, and point-of-view videos.Studies show that a combination of behavior changes can significantly reduce falls among older adults. Experts recommend:Participating in a physical activity regimen with balance, strength training, and flexibility components.Consulting with a health professional about getting a fall risk assessment.Having medications reviewed periodically.Getting eyes and ears checked annually.Making sure the home environment is safe and supportive.The recent United States of Aging Survey(link is external) polled older adults to find out about how they are preparing for their later years. More than half of seniors said they would be interested in the expansion of community-based health promotion programs, including falls prevention classes.At senior centers and other community-based organizations across the United States, programs like A Matter of Balance, Tai Chi, and Stepping On help older adults gain strength, improve balance, and build confidence to help them live healthier lives and preserve their independence.The final Health Department free screening events, led by EMS personnel, to help people determine if they are at risk for falls are:Sept. 30, West Barnet Presbyterian Church Fellowship Room, West Barnet, 12 p.m. to – 1 p.m. Sept. 30, West Burke Community Center, 212 School Street, West Burke, 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. After the free screenings, seniors are invited to stay for lunch, which costs from $3.50 to $5.00 depending on the site.For more information, to request a presentation or to discuss eligibility contact (802) 863-7227 or [email protected](link sends e-mail).Vermont is part of the national Falls Free® Initiative, which includes 43 state-based falls prevention coalitions and 70 national organizations, professional associations, and federal agencies across the country dedicated to reducing fall-related injuries and deaths among older adults.For more information, visit healthvermont.gov(link is external), or go to www.ncoa.org/FPAD(link is external).
