While promoting the protective bill as a high-profile supporter, Baker responded to our question describing his life at the time. He was two years into his battle with cancer and had to medically retire from his work as a firefighter, yet he exuded uncommon optimism and hope. He was enjoying his time with his family, like anyone in retirement should. It was clear that Baker was appreciative of what he had.
However, it was obvious he was also a fighter, a warrior and a brother to so many. He was looking forward to participating in our current legislative session and he was laser-focused on getting the Firefighter Health and Safety Act passed. Cancer is a horrible disease. The Firefighter Health and Safety Act would cover firefighters under workers compensation for a dozen different diseases, most of which are different types of cancer, that are directly correlated with firefighting.
Knowing that Baker and his family, and so many firefighter brothers and sisters have to fight — and in too many cases succumb to cancer — is heartbreaking. But for us, knowing that in Montana firefighters are not covered when diagnosed with cancer is infuriating. Somehow, covering firefighters for cancers that have been linked to their jobs is still up for debate in the Montana Legislature.

Privacy and cookiesJobsDatingOffersShopPuzzlesInvestor Jill Baker, 67, has been told that her treatment at St Mary’s hospital, Mrs Baker claimed yesterday that it was “revenge” for her criticism of the trust in April.
Doctors treating a year-old woman with cancer who developed an infection secretly noted that if she suffered a heart attack she should be left to die. Jill Baker, who has since recovered, says neither she nor her husband was asked about the instruction on her notes during a stay at St Mary’s Hospital, Portsmouth, last July. She discovered it when she requested the notes be sent to her because she was dissatisfied with other aspects of her care.
Mrs Baker, a retired teacher from Portsmouth, said yesterday she had found “Not for “, written on her notes, a code meaning “not for resuscitation”: is the hospital number for the emergency team called to cases of cardiac arrest. My husband broke down when he discovered it. He said he thought they were going to help me, not kill me,” she said. The case was highlighted yesterday by the charity Age Concern, which has been campaigning against age discrimination in the NHS.
The charity said it had received six similar reports over the past six months of the notes of elderly people being marked “not for resuscitation” without their agreement or knowledge.

Friday 28 August UK News feed. A CANCER patient who caused a national outcry in April when she revealed that a junior doctor had written Do Not Resuscitate in her notes without consulting herself or her husband claimed yesterday that she has been refused treatment at her local hospital. Jill Baker, 67, has been told that her treatment at St Mary’s hospital, Portsmouth, is to be transferred to a different trust in Southampton, a mile round trip from her home in Waterlooville, Hampshire.
She has also been banned from contacting any doctors, nurses or other staff because she has been “very abusive”, according to a letter from David Bawtree, the chairman of Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust. Mrs Baker claimed yesterday that it was “revenge” for her criticism of the trust in April. Her original complaint was backed by Age Concern and led to the charity compiling a dossier of 60 cases where elderly people were not to be revived if their heart or breathing stopped.
Mrs Baker was being treated for septicaemia after a chemotherapy tube for her cancer treatment became infected. In his letter Mr Bawtree told Mrs Baker not to contact staff, and he explained that her treatment was being transferred to Southampton as he claimed she had agreed with her specialist in an earlier meeting. He continued that she would be accepted in an emergency at the accident and emergency unit in Portsmouth. Mrs Baker admitted that she has made a number of telephone calls because she was worried about where she was being treated but denied they were abusive.
She said the letter was “libellous”.

The volume under review by Jill Baker is envisioned as a textbook about the most important technologies from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia modern Iraq and parts of Iran and Syria , Anatolia modern Turkey and parts of Armenia and Canaan modern Israel, Palestine, Jordan and parts of Syria , that seeks to reveal how they contributed to the creation and development of these civilizations.
Most of the existing studies on this topic are field-specific, she observes, and thus do not always link individual technologies with each other or with the wider Near East. Including the introduction and summary, there are 19 thematically-divided chapters. There are 80 black and white images generously peppered throughout the book.
These include photographs, architectural plans, drawings and helpful explanatory schematics. Unfortunately, due to the small size and poor quality of the images from the public domain, it is sometimes not possible to make out the details described in the caption e. Baker then looks at the most important materials exploited by humans since earliest history: stone, wood Chapters and bonding agents like glue, plaster, mortar, cement and bitumen Chapter 6.
Given the chronological and geographical scope of the book, it is difficult to be comprehensive and so some topics have been left out. For example, ornamental stones for jewelry, amulets, figurines and minerals employed as pigments are not treated in the chapter on stones. The discussion on metals chapter 5 focuses on extraction mining, melting, smelting rather than metal-working alloying, casting, shaping. Then again, Baker takes the time to explain basic technical terminology and processes, which will be helpful for students.
The overview of the geological particularities of the four regions of the Near East treated in the book is balanced with behavioural and cognitive explanations for why certain types of building materials were utilized. Changes in production techniques are mapped onto changes in practices —e. The next portion of the book concerns itself with how materials were used towards specific technological goals.
Hospital bans cancer victim who spoke of ‘death ward’
When my husband had cancer, it was a difficult period. But it wasn’t until he was in remission that the conversation turned to the topic of our relationship. His remission was a relief, but it was also a rebirth for him. He joined a gym, bought new clothes and started going out late with friends, without me. His libido went into overdrive; mine had stalled.
I went from fearing I would lose my husband to cancer, to fearing I was losing something else.
