Faculty members said the clinic is a win-win.“The clinic is not only a great benefit to the community, but also to our students,” said Dr. Mitchell Adler. “They obtain hands-on experience with clinical tools, hone their knowledge and listening skills, and also learn how to run a medical practice—an important reality of medicine that can’t be taught in the classroom.”The clinic is fully integrated into Northwell Health, which provides administrative and clinical support for the effort, including a call center for scheduling, medical records management, lab services and referral sources. It is open 6-9 p.m. Mondays, except holidays.The clinic is located in the Northwell Health Multi-Specialty Medical Group, 95-25 Queens Blvd., Rego Park, Queens.

How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers are expected to acquire a relief pitcher or two before next Wednesday’s trade deadline. The quest to improve the offensive depth on the roster has been a quiet one.That’s partially a function of the Dodgers’ minor league pipeline, which has provided an unusually steady supply of hitters in 2019. Alex Verdugo carried a .296 batting average – second on the team to Cody Bellinger among qualified hitters – into Wednesday’s game against the Angels. He has 12 home runs and 44 RBIs in 96 games in his first full season.Other rookies have thrived in reserve roles. Matt Beaty had a .303 average through Tuesday, with 24 RBIs in his first 43 games. Will Smith hit three home runs in his first nine games before returning to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Kyle Garlick and Edwin Rios combined for 12 hits in 33 games, but half of them went for extra bases. They have since returned to Triple-A, too.“The baseball IQ is high on all those guys,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “When you get young players here, to have them major-league ready in this market, in this environment, is hard. You really don’t know what you’re going to expect. “A lot of that has to do with player development – those coaches, preparing (players) the right way. Then you introduce our clubhouse, the culture here. Our guys have done a great job making those players feeling comfortable.”The Dodgers are historically more renowned for developing pitchers than hitters. Five homegrown pitchers (Clayton Kershaw, Eric Gagne, Orel Hershiser, Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale) have won Cy Young Awards since the franchise moved to Los Angeles. Kershaw and Koufax have Most Valuable Player awards to their credit.If Cody Bellinger wins the MVP award this year, he’ll be the first homegrown Dodgers position player to do so since Steve Garvey in 1974. Maury Wills is the only other homegrown Los Angeles Dodgers position player to win an MVP award, in 1962.Collectively, the Dodgers’ 2019 rookie crop is pacing behind only four other teams since 1958 in weighted runs created plus (WRC+), which adjusts for era and park factors.The Dodgers have even more talent burgeoning at Oklahoma City, where Gavin Lux (1.511), D.J. Peters (1.191) and Zach Reks (.926) all entered play Wednesday with an on-base plus slugging percentage above .900. This has lessened the Dodgers’ need to add hitting depth from outside the organization. Related Articles “The right-handed bat that we have coming back in Chris Taylor, A.J. (Pollock) was a midseason acquisition,” Roberts said. “Now you see some things from Will Smith, Garlick, Matt Beaty here. That makes you feel a lot better about your offensive positional depth.”ROTATION PLANSHyun-Jin Ryu (Friday), Clayton Kershaw (Saturday) and Walker Buehler (Sunday) will start this weekend against the Nationals, each with two extra days of rest.Washington is expected to counter with Anibal Sanchez, Joe Ross and Stephen Strasburg.Kenta Maeda and Ross Stripling are lined up to pitch the first two games of next week’s three-game series in Denver, each with one additional day of rest.ALSODylan Floro (neck inflammation) did not report any pain after throwing 23 pitchers to minor leaguers Edwin Mateo and Alex De Jesus. Floro is in line for a minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga before rejoining the Dodgers in Denver, Roberts said. The right-hander is eligible to be activated from the injured list Monday. … Left-hander Scott Alexander (left forearm inflammation) has yet to begin a throwing program, Roberts said.

Share on: WhatsApp Liverpool fans in SydneyLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsene Wenger’s side will be consigned to the indignity of Thursday nights in the unglamourous Europa League next term. Despite winning seven of their last eight games, Arsenal are in fifth place, one point behind Liverpool and three adrift of City.Rocked by Arsenal’s failure to live up to his expectations, and with a succession of former players questioning his methods, Wenger has been under fire like never before in his 21-year reign.As if finishing below arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur for the first time in 22 years wasn’t bad enough, Wenger’s bid to lead Arsenal into the Champions League for a 20th successive season has ended dismally.To make matters worse, his former captain Tony Adams said Wenger “couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag” in an extract from his autobiography “Sober”, serialised in the Sun newspaper.Wenger, however, brushed off the criticism from former defender Adams, whose coaching tenure at Granada has ended in relegation from La Liga in Spain.Having refused to confirm if he will accept Arsenal’s offer of a new contract, the 67-year-old Wenger said this week said his future will be settled when he meets the club’s powerbrokers after the Gunners’ FA Cup final date with Chelsea on May 27. That’s the end of our @premierleague season. Three points today but it’s not enough to secure a top-four finish.#AFCvEFC pic.twitter.com/oGKoQnwKG9— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) May 21, 2017 read more
He adds FDOT officials have been in frequent communication with the City of Stuart staff about the status of the southbound bridge.“We’re at a point right now where we have the north bridge open to four lanes of traffic where we’re doing OK, and for the most part, traffic is moving smooth; certainly we want the bridge back in full operation, but not at the expense of any risks of safety,” Meier explains.The Roosevelt Bridge was closed to drivers on June 16, after FDOT officials conducting a regular inspection noticed a crack in the southbound bridge. They also discovered corrosion in both spans.The northbound and southbound bridges were then closed for inspection until June 27, at which point the northbound bridge reopened to two-way traffic following minor repair work.After restoring the bridge’s strength and allowing it to re-open to traffic, FDOT will address the corrosion and do the work to preserve the bridge.Occasional lane closures are expected as the design and repair work continues, officials say. The Florida Department of Transportation announced late Friday that repairs to both sides of the Roosevelt Bridge in Stuart are anticipated to take four months.Structural Technologies LLC will be the contractor to assist the FDOT with design plans.The cost to repair the broken tendons and corrosion will be determined once the design and scope of the work are final.FDOT officials said the agency plans to complete the design work by the end of July and begin repairs in August.The bridge is still closed to large trucks.Meanwhile, the FDOT says the cause of the corrosion that was discovered last month remains under investigation.“As far as the timeline is concerned, my main concern is safety,” says Stuart Mayor Mike Meier. read more
