Study shows surge of emergency room visits since introduction of rideshare e-scooters — ScienceDaily

A Henry Ford Health System physician is sounding the alarm on the rising number of injuries caused from riding electric scooters, calling it a growing public health concern.

In a study of e-scooter injuries, Kathleen Yaremchuk, M.D., chair of the Department of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery, says a review of emergency visits in the last three years shows e-scooter injuries have increased significantly with many of them related to head and neck injuries. The study describes how the types of injuries which include concussions, fractures, contusions and abrasions, lacerations and internal organ injuries have changed since the introduction of e-scooter rideshare systems to the public in September 2017.

Survey assesses consumer perceptions of different dining room setups implemented by restaurants amid COVID-19 pandemic — ScienceDaily

Restaurants around the world were forced to shut down their dining rooms at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year to comply with stay-at-home orders. While many operations closed for good, others reopened at limited capacity several weeks later, sparking creative solutions to enforce social distancing guidelines, including utilizing mannequins. Others were more conservative and opted to place plastic or glass partitions between tables. But which socially-distanced dining room do consumers prefer?

A study published in the International Journal of Hospitality Managementrevealed that consumer perceptions of the dining room that utilized partitions were significantly greater than those that used mannequins. Scott Taylor, assistant professor at the University of Houston Conrad N.

Disturbance, theft, simple assault: Orange Place

Police responded to the Hampton Inn around 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 25 after a Cleveland woman, 22, initially reported someone was crawling out of her second-floor window. She later explained that she had met a Cleveland man, 28, in the parking lot and invited him up to her room, but when he became too intoxicated, she asked him to leave.

An argument ensued, and when the man punched her in the face, she struck him with a lamp before he fled with $200 that belonged to her. The desk clerk said he refused when the frantic suspect came to the lobby and asked to be let back in the room in order to retrieve the iPhone he had left behind, at which point he went out through the main entrance.

Police and hotel staff later found the room’s broken door knob
