SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR RUTHVEN

Responding To and Protecting Students from Sexual Assault in RUTHVEN

January 26, 2015

Courtesy of Eve Hill and Mark Kappelhoff, Deputy Assistant Attorneys General for the Civil Rights pision

Note: The sample MOU can be found at here.

President Obama established the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault one year ago. On this anniversary, the task force has released a sample memorandum of understanding (MOU) to assist campuses and law enforcement agencies to work together in their efforts to protect students, address the needs of sexual assault survivors, and ensure a prompt, thorough, and fair response to allegations of sexual misconduct. This is yet another important step in the task force’s effort to help colleges and universities, as well as their partners in the community, address the problem of campus sexual violence.

While colleges and universities can do much on their own, communication and collaboration between campus administrators, campus police and local law enforcement is critically important to address the problem of sexual assault on campus.

The sample MOU reflects input from task force members and agencies, outside experts on sexual assault, police associations, state attorneys general, and campus administrators and counsels.

Many colleges and universities already have MOUs in place with local law enforcement authorities covering a variety of areas. Our conversations with campus administrators, campus police, and law enforcement have underscored the need for additional tools and strategies that are specifically tailored to the dynamics of sexual assault on campus, as well as the needs of sexual assault survivors. The task force is providing this sample MOU with that in mind.

We recognize that every campus and community is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The sample MOU is, therefore, intended to be a starting point for a conversation between campus administrators, campus police and local law enforcement on how to improve collaborations between critical first responders. We fully expect that, in partnering to address the issue of sexual violence on campus, campus administrators and law enforcement will adapt the provisions of the sample MOU to meet their particular needs and circumstances. For example, some campus and law enforcement authorities may wish to incorporate some or all of the provisions into an existing general campus safety MOU, while others may prefer a standalone agreement specifically addressing campus sexual violence. Still others may decide that some different method of collaboration better meets their needs. We hope that this sample MOU will be an important resource in collaborative efforts between campus administrators, campus police and law enforcement to eradicate sexual assault from college communities nationwide.

GET YOUR MEDICARE READY FOR 2015 IN RUTHVEN

Do you make resolutions for the new year? Here are some easy ones you can keep that will help get you ready for 2015:

1. Check to see that you have the right insurance card to use when you go to the doctor in 2015. Did you change your health or drug plan during Medicare Open Enrollment? If you did and you haven’t received your new card or welcome packet by January 1st, contact your plan for help. If you need to fill a prescription right away, find out how to fill a prescription without your card.

If you changed from a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) back to Original Medicare, use your red, white, and blue Medicare card when you go to the doctor. Get a new card if you lost or damaged yours, or need to update your information.

2. Budget for next year’s Medicare Part B deductible.

Remember, if you have Medicare Part B and you’re in Original Medicare, you’ll have to meet your deductible before your Medicare coverage pays for services and supplies. Next year, the Medicare Part B deductible will be $147, the same as it was in 2014. Plan your health care budget to account for the increased cost of doctor visits for the time that it will take to cover your deductible. Find out more about Medicare costs in 2015.

3.  Schedule appointments to get any preventive tests or screenings.

Medicare covers all sorts of preventive services to keep you healthy and screenings to check for health problems, and many are covered each year at no cost to you. Ask your doctor when you should schedule your wellness visit and other screenings. You can also use MyMedicare.gov to track your visits and make a calendar of preventive services.

Talk to your doctor about these covered preventive services to find out what’s right for your health needs.

4. Make sure your drug or health plan meet your needs.

If not, Medicare has a way for you to get the coverage you want instead of having to wait for the next Open Enrollment. At any time during the year, you can switch to a Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Prescription Drug Plan that has a 5-star rating.

Plan ratings are based on member surveys, information from doctors and health care providers, and other sources. The plan ratings are scores that show the quality and performance of the plan, on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest rated plans.

You can make this change once per calendar year. Find 5-star health and drug plans in your area.

Remember to check www.medicare.gov for the latest Medicare news and information, and have a happy and healthy new year!

City service: tips to get pregnant

Trick 1: Find out when you"re ovulating

The biggest secret to get pregnant right away is to know exactly when you are ovulating, ie, when one of their two ovaries are releasing an egg. Think of this egg like a target, and imagine the sperm like arrows:. For you to get pregnant, one of the arrows have to hit the target there are several methods to help you discover if you are in the fertile period. One of them is our ovulation calculator. Read more about how your menstrual cycle works. But if you notice that your periods have been very irregular in recent months, may be more difficult to identify ovulation. See what other methods to detect ovulation and consult your doctor to know better how to proceed. 




Trick 2: Be in the right place at the right time

Once you know the date of ovulation, prepare (and list your partner) to have sex during your most fertile days. You can get three days before and continuing until after the expected date of ovulation. (Start a little earlier also does not hurt; some women achieved pregnancy having sex until six days before ovulation.) As the sperm survive in your body for a few days, you have a good length of time to try to conceive. This means that if you have intercourse on a Monday, the sperm will stay in her reproductive system, waiting for an egg, until Thursday. Or up to Sunday in some cases. But remember, your egg only survives for about a day. If you do not know when ovulation will occur, follow the good old rule of having sex every other day. So, every day you will have a stock of healthy sperm waiting in the fallopian tube, ready to spring into action when the egg appears. (If you and your partner want to have sex more often than that, no problems. But know that it does not will increase or decrease your chances of getting pregnant). Another tip: if for some reason you are waiting to go into action during the time of ovulation, do not let this happen after a long fast. Your partner needs to ejaculate at least once before the fertile period, but there may be an accumulation of dead sperm in the semen, and they do not serve to conceive a baby. 








Trick 3: Remain lying down after sex

For a long time, scientists had no evidence that the woman stay lying down for a while after sex help the sperm to reach the egg. But, in 2009, Dutch researchers found that, in a fertility clinic in Amsterdam, women remained lying on his back for 15 minutes after artificial insemination were 50% more likely to become pregnant than those that remained standing after the procedure. You can not prove that the same probability applies to sexual intercourse, but the study shows that lie can help the sperm to do their part. And anyway, does not hurt to try. It is not necessary to stay with her ??legs up, just lying on her side is enough. 






Trick 4: Enjoy this time of expectation

If you hurry to get pregnant, you may end up feeling too anxious about it. This is normal, but the truth is that the chances are greater if you are not stressed. This is because the hypothalamus - the gland in the brain that regulates hormones ovulation. - Does not work so well when you"re nervous, causing her body to end ovulating later or even not release an egg that cycle therefore try maximum to enjoy this phase and all this "lot" of carefree sex. Make sex fun - instead of just thinking about making a baby - you can even increase your chances of getting pregnant. And if you"re thinking of ways to spice things up, good news: there is not a position that is better than the other to get pregnant. All are equally effective. 


Trick 5: Prepare the ground for superespermatozoides

Sperm are more likely to fertilize an as healthier, stronger and egg are plentiful. There are several ways to help your partner improve sperm quality:
  • Cut Alcohol (drink daily studies show that may reduce testosterone levels, lower sperm count and increasing the number of defective cells).
  • Declare war on smoking (smoking can reduce the quality of sperm).
  • Eat more foods rich in zinc, folic acid, calcium and vitamins C and D (they help produce many strong and fast sperm).
  • Avoiding hot and sauna baths, since the heat eliminates sperm (testes work best at a temperature between 34.4 and 35 degrees Celsius, slightly less than normal body temperature). Stay long with the laptop on the lap increases the temperature of the testes, as well as riding a bike too.

The sooner your partner adopt these changes, the better. New sperm can take up to three months to produce. 

Trick 6: Make sure you also

Your chances of having a healthy pregnancy and a baby are higher if your body and your life are ready for the task. Before you start trying to conceive, see your gynecologist or general practitioner to see if all is well with your ovulation and if their immunizations are up to date. You will also greatly help if you reduce or cut the consumption of alcoholic beverages and smoking cessation and drugs. All these substances interfere negatively on your fertility and are also dangerous to the fetus. Consider the hypothesis also cut out caffeine. Some studies show that women who take more than one or two cups of coffee a day are less likely becoming pregnant.
