June Is Recognized As Men’s Health Month

Awareness period is key to fighting the spread of COVID-19

June 1 kicks off the 2020 Men’s Health Month, an annual awareness period solely dedicated to education and activities on the health and wellness of men and boys. Communities around the nation are recognizing Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week, a special awareness period recognized by Congress.

The global activities associated with this month-long celebration this year are more important than ever, and now include encouraging men to fight the spread of COVID-19 by seeking early treatment for symptoms, practicing safe distancing, and being a role model for their children.

This year, Men’s Health Week will be celebrated June 15-21 ending on Father’s Day. The week is celebrated as International Men’s Health Week around the globe and Friday, June 19, 2020 is Wear Blue Day.

During this time, health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based and community organizations, and government agencies plan activities that focus on the health and well-being of boys, men, and their families. Men’s Health Month is built on the pillars of Awareness–Prevention–Education–Family.

“Awareness periods like Men’s Health Month are crucial in helping to educate the public on health issues and health disparities impacting men,” said Ana Fadich-Tomsic, VP of Men’s Health Network (MHN). “Men continue to suffer from chronic illness and lower insurance rates than women. Men are also less likely to seek out mental health services than women. Support for Men’s Health Month from policymakers, state and federal legislators, the media, and our private and non-profit partners can help fight these systemic issues and save lives.”

Dr. Salvatore J. Giorgianni Jr., PharmD, Senior Science Advisor to Men’s Health Network (MHN) explained, “This Men's Health Month poses many unique challenges associated with Coronavirus. We at MHN are concerned about the higher death rate among men, and recognize the need for men to ‘Man Up to Coronavirus (or COVID) by practicing hand washing, wearing masks, and social distancing.”

“This Men's Health Month should be taken as a time to recognize the fact that men have higher rates of cardiovascular disease, suicide and mental health issues, and other comorbidities that may contribute to poorer health among men,” added Dr. Tony Roberson, PhD, PMHNP-BC, RN, FAANP, Visiting Professor at the George Washington University School of Nursing and advisor to MHN. “We must always be looking at the bigger picture of men's health."

Dr. Jean Bonhomme, MD, MPH, Founder and Chairman, National Black Men’s Health Network, stated, “There needs to be greater recognition of the fact that the health of men and boys is not exclusively a men's issue. Unfortunately men's health outcomes negatively impact the stability of entire families as well as the economic productivity of society as a whole.” He continued, “Men's health, women's, children's health and minority health need to be viewed as coequal partners in optimizing the health of communities as well as the overall health of the nation as a whole.”

Over 350 mayors and governors across the country recognize June as Men's Health Month with official proclamations. The proclamations are displayed in Congress and report cards on the status of the health and well-being of boys and men in each state are available at the State of Men’s Health web site. Free resources are available in both English and Spanish at www.MensHealthMonth.com A comprehensive social media resources page with a toolkit, images to use, logos, and short video messages can be found at www.menshealthmonth.org/mens-health-month-toolkit.html

A key part of the continued momentum is the social media campaign, including:

• #ShowUsYourBlue campaign: People all over the world take pictures of themselves and others wearing blue to increase awareness for men’s health.

• The #ShowUsYourBlue social media storm is on Wear Blue Friday, June 19, the Friday of Men's Health Week

Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week are sponsored by Men’s Health Network (MHN), which maintains a list of experts and spokespersons on all areas of male health and wellness, including fatherhood issues.

Men's Health Network (MHN) is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health awareness messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation.

"We are urging the family of a Navy Veteran or person anywhere in Washington State with lung cancer to ask them to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 if they also had significant exposure to asbestos.”

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Washington US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are urging the family or friends of a Navy Veteran or person anywhere in Washington State with lung cancer to ask them to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 if they also had significant exposure to asbestos in the service or at work. The person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old and he probably is not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for him too. Even if the person smoked cigarettes, they could still get compensated. Compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000.

"To get the financial compensation job done for a person like this we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO. The lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO have been assisting Navy Veterans and people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people like this. For direct access to the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO please call 800-714-0303." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Skyworks Global Appoints Distribution Partner for Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia & Singapore

The Hawk 5 Gyroplane

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, U.S.A., May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Skyworks Global Inc. (“Skyworks”), the global leader in gyronautics, announced that it has signed a sales and marketing distribution agreement with One08 Group. The distribution agreement covers the sales territories of Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore for Skyworks’ five seat Hawk 5 aircraft.

The Hawk 5 gyroplane uses a free-spinning rotor to provide lift and an airplane engine for thrust. Utilizing an engine driven pre-rotation system while on the ground, the Hawk 5 is capable of jump take-offs, allowing take-off from almost anywhere. In flight, the unpowered rotor is always in autorotation, so in the unlikely event of an engine failure, the Hawk 5’s rotor would continue to spin providing a normal glidepath, keeping the pilot in complete control. Since it has no transmission or antitorque equipment, the Hawk 5 eliminates the flight risk, periodic maintenance, and lost business days associated with these systems, providing the owner greater safety, reliability, and lower costs. Coupled with the flying simplicity of fixed wing aircraft, the Hawk 5 is a true workhorse.

Capt. Sanjeev Mathur, the CEO of One08 Group stated “Skyworks Global is the world leader in commercializing gyroplanes and we are extremely excited to be working with them to take these transformative flight capabilities to market, together. The autorotating rotor is a brilliant safety feature which continues to give the Pilot complete control and land the aircraft in case of an unlikely engine failure. Something every safety conscious organization needs to adopt.”

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with One08 Group to bring the promise of safe, sustainable and affordable gyro-technology to this region of the world,” said Skyworks Executive Director Brig. General (Ret) John E. Michel. “Our proven Hawk 5 gyroplane delivers unprecedented safety, reliability and operational flexibility, providing users with a dynamic platform to achieve a wide array of possible missions.”

About One08 Group:

One08 Group are distributors for Aviation, Maritime, Mining and other heavy industry products, equipment and services, representing manufacturers from across the globe. They also act as Mandate or Facilitator for commodity deals. One08 Group aims to continue partnering with innovative Companies providing niche solutions. For more information about the company, visit www.one08group.com

About Skyworks:

Skyworks Global Inc. is the world leader in gyronautics, the study and design of sustained autorotative flight represented by the company's gyroplane technology. Skyworks has more than 40 patents with several more underway, all obtained in an effort to radically change not only the way gyroplanes are perceived, but also the way they are utilized. From mass personnel transportation, agriculture, and border protection to literally changing the economies of developing nations, Skyworks' goal is to change the paradigm of aerial technology.

Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak explains that we are in a Global War with the Coronavirus

VOIP-PAL Corporate Logo

VOIP-PAL CEO Emil Malak

CEOCFO Magazine logo

In an interview with CEOCFO Magazine, VOIP-PAL CEO and Director Emil Malak discusses the asymptomatic COVID-19, the reopening of states and the airlines

Voip-Pal (OTCQB:VPLM)

Requiring each passenger to show a current negative test result before boarding will restore confidence in the safety of air travel.”

— Emil Malak

WASHINGTON, DC, US, May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced an interview and op-ed (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/voippaloped7052620.html) with Emil Malak, CEO of Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company, inventers and pioneers of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls.

Mr. Malak has many other business ventures and is well versed on the coronavirus pandemic and its possible spread. Mr. Malak explained that, “We must treat COVID-19 like other killer diseases, such as cancer, heart problems, diabetes, pulmonary issues, and lupus etc.” However, Mr. Malak points to out that the major difference in this disease is that it has managed to hide, as it is asymptomatic and now it is crippling our economies. He says, “Asymptomatic: patients do not show any clinical symptoms, have normal chest imaging, but yield a positive nucleic acid test. They become silent, invisible, and lethal vectors of COVID-19, being just as likely to spread the virus as a symptomatic patient. Children are more likely to be asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 than adults. It is believed that between 10% to 15% or more of carriers are asymptomatic. It only takes one to infect dozens, hundreds or even thousands of people in an enclosed environment.”

Since we seem to be in a global war, and every country would need a marshal plan in order to get back their economies. When asked what a marshal plan to combat the coronavirus should look like, Mr. Malak responded, “The Coronavirus Marshal Plan begins with executing the right testing strategy. Mobile testing vans need to be deployed and visible in every community. Once a person is tested, their current test results would be displayed on their smartphone. As long a person tests negative, they could move about freely. Anyone who tests positive can receive early treatment and isolate themselves to avoid spreading the virus to their family and friends, and avoid mass spreading within the community.

Only testing everyone continuously is the solution according to Mr. Malak, “Tests should be repeated on a weekly basis to ensure each person has an accurate current result. This provides the only safe way forward. By implementing this coronavirus Marshal Plan we will be able to fully reopen the economy without worrying about a surge of new infections or increased mortality rates. Businesses will be positioned to soar once again to their pre-COVID-19 heights. Testing frequencies can always be reviewed and adjusted as needed.”

As to what we would need to do to get international air travel back to normal, Mr. Malak responds, “In my proposal, airlines would provide testing to each passenger no longer than 48 hours before boarding the plane. In some instances, they can even offer the test at the airport. Only passengers with a negative test result would be permitted to board the plane. A passenger would take the test prior to their outbound flight and again before their return flight. Requiring each passenger to show a current negative test result before boarding will restore confidence in the safety of air travel.”

Is China the new evil empire requiring everyone to cut trade with them? Mr. Malak told CEOCFO's Bud Wayne, “The people who make up the silent majority in the United States and Europe realize that China has not been truthful. They can see through the lies and how China has benefited economically from the coronavirus pandemic while the rest of the world suffers greatly – the Chinese regime is laughing all the way to the bank! It is time for the world’s leaders to come together and stop all dealings with the Chinese government. China must suffer consequences for the pain and suffering they have unleashed on the world. Additionally, severing ties with the Chinese will create millions and millions of jobs outside of China and help countries once again become self-sufficient. This is no time for globalization or bowing to the interests of the World Trade Organization (WTO) that has shown so much bias in favor of the Chinese and has helped spread the Chinatization of much of the world.”

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — OXOS Medical has been selected as a first round winner of the xTechSearch competition (Expeditionary Technology Search) sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology (ASA(ALT)). The xTechSearch provides opportunities to uncover novel science and technology solutions by engaging with small businesses and non-traditional partners. The final competition culminates in a $250,000 grand prize and entry into the xTech Accelerator to receive intensive mentorship and access to opportunities to connect their companies with Army and commercial users.

The problem and solution targeted by the OXOS Medical mobile X-ray solution address hemorrhage – the leading cause of preventable deaths in military combat. Over 90% of pre-Military Treatment Facility (MTF) deaths deemed potentially survivable are caused by hemorrhage. In resource-rich civilian Emergency Departments (ED), Trauma Centers, and Operating Suites, X-ray imaging is the primary imaging modality for initial trauma care. Early use of chest and pelvic x-ray images can identify patients at high risk of hemorrhagic events and internal injuries. X-ray image guidance is used to place internal tourniquets such as REBOA (Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta). Proper identification of long-bone injuries can prevent upwards of 1 liter of blood loss. The size and power footprint of current traditional x-ray equipment is far too large and the equipment itself too fragile.

Dr. Gregory Kolovich, OXOS Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder explained, “The Micro C will be optimized to function in austere environments and can be used to diagnose and mitigate health threats such as injury and polytrauma. It can enable quick triage and identification of hemorrhagic events and musculoskeletal injuries. A portable X-ray device would be part of the standard equipment kit for Forward Resuscitation Surgical Teams (FRSTs), and even potentially, for first responder medics.” He added, “The Micro C could have a direct impact on warfighter survivability and recovery time. During the critical Golden Hour time period, the Micro C will provide diagnostic imaging where there currently is none. The Micro C can enable critically accurate placement of internal tourniquets and greatly increase the survivability of the injured warfighter.”

The Micro C, a portable, hand-held, x-ray imaging device, can be utilized in these austere settings. Evan Ruff, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder described next steps, “With ruggedization upgrades, this device has the potential to revolutionize Golden Hour medical care. Enabling more accurate injury identification and stabilization can increase the chance of survival, decrease patient pain, reduce chances of further injury, and speed return-to-duty. This device has the potential for an Army-wide impact across all Echelon I and II medical deployments.” He expanded with “Aside from inadequate ultrasound, injured warfighters are without diagnostic imaging until transfer to an Echelon III care facility, which can take up to 72 hours.”

The process began with the OXOS Medical submission of a concept white paper for its deployed rugged handheld X-ray presenting its technology, potential impact on the Army, scientific viability of the approach, and dual-use technology applications for both the commercial and defense spaces. The Army panel from the Army Science & Technology ecosystem included warfighter, acquisition, and research and development subject matter experts. OXOS Co-founders, Dr. Gregory Kolovich, Chief Medical Officer and Evan Ruff, Chief Executive Officer, will now deliver the company’s pitch to a panel of Army subject matter experts in a virtual session. Semi-finals will take place at the AUSA (Association of the U.S. Army) 2020 Annual Meeting, followed by the final round, a proof-of-concept demonstration and transition plan presentation at the 2021 AUSA Global Force Symposium and Exhibition.

The Micro C is the first handheld fluoroscopic system designed for surgeons and physicians treating extremities in both surgical and clinical environments. Invented by orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Gregory Kolovich, he designed the device to address major imaging issues that he recognized while practicing. The company was founded in 2016 in Savannah, Georgia as Micro C Imaging LLC and then expanded into its Atlanta facility to support engineering, operations and corporate functions. OXOS Medical has been an Accelerate member company of the Advanced Development Technology Center (ATDC) of the Georgia Institute of Technology, of which Dr. Kolovich, Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder, and Evan Ruff, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, are engineering graduates. The co-founders recognized that current orthopedic imaging devices (C-Arms) are bulky, slow, large, cumbersome, and dangerous, exposing operators to 10x the necessary dose and increasing procedure time by 20%. OXOS Medical’s first device is the Micro C. Important to the company's future success is the U.S. Patent awarded to OXOS Medical in September of 2018 related to its novel fluoroscopic positioning system and other innovations.
