Update, air conditioning and other issues at the Van Cortlandt Village Senior Center

July 15, 2016 At last air conditioning on in the morning.  I participated in Doriana Castro's aerobics class.
During June 2016 the issues regarding lack of air conditioning continued.
Today July 16, 2015 when I walked into the dining room I saw this
This is the first time I have observed the senior center tolerating this behavior.  It was one table, the other tables did not have reserved seating.

July 14, 2015 this week the air conditioning was on in the morning.  Last week it was turned on near lunchtime.  This should never have been an issue.

This film was on July 2, 2015
Fan in dining hall  This is the room where exercise classes take place as well as lunch.  It is now a month and the air conditioning still hasn't been fixed.  Filmed this morning around 10 a.m.

Pedro Cabezas

Pedro Cabezas taught Vinyasa Yoga at the Van Cortlandt Village Senior Center.  He committed suicide.  A memorial service was held for him on Wednesday March 23, 2016 at 3 pm, the usual time of his class.
His sister brought this poster.
He was a wonderful, gifted teacher.  He could help others, alas he could not help himself.

Battery dies, the patient is at risk

Short Battery Life of Cardiac Devices 
The theme of this article is that it's not in the best financial interest of battery manufacturers to make a longer lasting battery.  Every time one has to be replaced, you the patient, are at risk of harm.  Remember, the consent form you sign when you enter the hospital is a carte blanche for your medical team to do whatever they want when you are in surgery.
