It also helped that there were 40 machines at Villa Parke to accommodate what lead election official Angel Romero described as only “a heavy trickle” of voters.Romero declined to give a more specific estimate of the number of voters. But poll worker Phil Levin, who said he’s pulled Election Day duty for “a couple of years,” estimated that around 300 voters had stopped by the center as of 2 p.m., to either vote live or to drop off the mail-in ballots. He estimated the average time for a voter, in and out, was 20 minutes.Levin said, as has been his experience, that he expected another uptick between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., when people get off work.“It’s not real busy – at noon, around lunchtime, there must’ve been about a dozen people lined up, but usually it’s been two, three, four,’’ Levin said. “It’s been spotty. But you’ve got to remember, this is the 11th day (of voting, incorporating L.A. County’s early-voting opportunities.)’’Romero reported no major issues with the new machines, other than a few paper jams that he said sidelined six of the polling place’s 40 machines. He said county IT workers had been alerted and would remedy the situation, but that the glitches had not delayed anyone from voting because of the relatively light lines.One other minor issue Romero’s poll workers had to deal with was a Bernie Sanders sign that was affixed over one of the arrow-bearing signs outside the building that directed voters to the proper voting location.The “Bernie” sign was more than 100 feet from the polling place – Romero & Co. measured – so it was not technically illegal electioneering by the anonymous Sanders supporter. It was, though, not permitted, and the sign was removed once poll workers became aware of it.“It’s not right, but it’s not illegal,” Romero said.Meanwhile, the new electronic voting machines got generally good reviews from voters buttonholed by Pasadena Now after they had cast their ballots.Wendy Zavaleta, 21, didn’t even know the touchscreen voting system was new.“New system? It’s my first time voting,’’ she said. “It’s nice to see that there are technological advances. At the same time, I do worry about tampering.”Jesus Carrasco, a retired Metro bus driver who described himself as “a young 81,” said, “I like this better than the old system. I’m not good with technology, but it was real simple, and there was plenty of help.”Jaylynn Bailey, 49, said she was expecting some kind of a receipt from her voting machine – “Like, ‘Your vote has been registered,’ or something’’ – and was surprised the machines don’t do that.“But other than that, it was just like using an iPad,” she said.

Today marks the start of the Road Safety Authority’s (RSA) weeklong program promoting road safety across Ireland.How safe are your tyres?One of the key messages is regular tyre checks. After all, it’s the only part of your car connected to the road. But did you know, that the legal limit for tyres is 1.6mm Ulster Tyres have lots of activities planned over the next few days during Road Safety Week. Ulster Tyres are doing pop tyre clinics at Kavanagh’s Supervalu Ballybofey on Friday 11th October 11am-1pm. They are in Letterkenny shopping centre Saturday 12th October from 9am-1pm.Get your FREE tyre checks with Ulster Tyres. Stay tuned to Ulster Tyres Facebook page for lots of free giveaways during Road Safety Week.Here’s Ulster Tyres quick guide to tyre safety will help keep you and your family safe on the road.Tyre pressure and tread depth: The legal minimum tread depth in Ireland is 1.6mm across a continuous band comprising the central three-quarters of the breadth of tread and round its entire circumference.Tyre treads are designed to give good grip on wet roads but in general wet grip decreases as the tyre tread depth approaches the legal minimum.Motorists should take this into consideration and reduce speed when driving in wet conditions. For the same reason, motorists may wish to consider replacing tyres before the tread depth reaches the legal minimumHaving the correct wheel inflation levels is vital as your wheels need to support the weight of your car and also its passengers. Required tyre inflation varies from car model to car model, so you need to check your specific car manufacturer’s handbook.As the temperature drops, so does your tyre pressure. So, if you haven’t inflated your tyres over the last few months, there is a chance they have less pressure than you think. Tyre ageAge is another critical factor when it comes to the health of your tyres. Tyres deteriorate naturally through exposure to heat, sunlight (Ultraviolet/UV), rain and general weathering. The process of the tyre degrading can depend on the amount of exposure and the severity of the weather. In everyday vehicles, tyres almost certainly will wear out before they degrade to such an extent they are unusable.Tyres more than 10 years old, including your spare tyres, should be replaced, even if they appear to be in good condition and above the legal tread wear limit of 1.6mm.Believe it or not, when a tyre has been in use, the effects of aging are lessened to a degree, so tyres that have been in storage should not be placed into use if more than six years old. So, remember to check the age of your tyres, and this can be found on the tyre sidewall, the serial number comprises of a four-digit code which refers to the tyre’s date of manufacture (the last two digits refer to the year of manufacture and the first two the week in that year e.g. 2017 is week 20 of 2017).Tyre aging increases the risk of tyre failure which may include a blow-out while being driven.Pot Hole Abuse Driving over pot-holes, kerbs, etc, even at low speed, can result in the weakening or fracture of the tyre’s inner structure. It may be dangerous to re-inflate a tyre which has been run flat or seriously under-inflated and such tyres should be removed for comprehensive examination by a tyre specialist.Tyres should be inspected at least monthly for punctures, cuts, bulges, cracking or any other abnormal visual indications.Particular attention should be paid to tyres that are used infrequently; for example as fitted to spare wheels, trailers, caravans and specialist or collector’s vehicles.Motorists should also be attentive to any unusual noise or vibration arising from the tyre whilst driving.If any degradation is found or suspected the consumer is strongly advised to have the tyre inspected as soon as practicable.Get your FREE tyre checks with Ulster Tyres this Road Safety Week was last modified: October 7th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Usually this is made in the lower right part of your belly.The last part of your small intestine (ileum) is pulled through this surgical cut, and sewn onto your belly.This opening in your belly formed by your ileum is called the stoma. Stool will come out of this opening and collect in a drainage bag that will be attached to you.Why the Procedure Is PerformedTotal proctocolectomy with ileostomy surgery is done when other medical treatment does not help problems with your large intestine.It is most commonly done in people who have inflammatory bowel disease, which includes ulcerative colitis or Crohns disease.This surgery may also be done if you have:Colon or rectum cancerFamilial polyposisBleeding in your intestineBirth defects that have damaged your intestinesIntestinal damage from an accident or injuryRisksTotal proctocolectomy with ileostomy is usually safe. Your risk will depend on your general overall health.

Ask your doctor which drugs you should still take on the day of your surgery.Talk with your doctor or nurse about these things before you have surgery:Intimacy and sexualitySportsWorkPregnancyDuring the 2 weeks before your surgery:You may be asked to stop taking drugs that make it harder for your blood to clot.
