Schena Ostomy Technologies to be featured on 21st Century Health Television March 3, 2012

(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 01, 2012 ) Schena Ostomy Technologies has been selected to appear on 21st Century Health, an award winning international television series. Schena Ostomy Technologies is dedicated to improving an ostomates lifestyle through the life changing EZ-Clean™ products that they have developed. From personal life experience, Schena Ostomy Technologies saw the need for products that make coping with the day to day realities of ostomy more acceptable and made them a reality. Schena Ostomy offers products that can be life changing. The pouch systems offered are Medicare Approved. Ken Schena has five US Patents and two Foreign Patents with more pending.
The EZ-Clean is a system designed to make life easier for those with an Ostomy to service a Colostomy or Ileostomy. The system uses liquid (water) under pressure to clean the inside of the pouch and exposed surfaces of the stoma in less than 3 minutes. The water feed system is a one time purchase for use with replacement pouches purchased as needed. A Water Feed Adapter is available for use with plastic container bottled water to clean the pouch when no utility water source is available.

The EZ-Clean pouch has a manifold built into the top interior to disperse the water, under pressure, to totally cleanse the interior of the pouch and the exposed stoma area. There is an inlet at the top of the pouch to permit easy hook-up of the water feed system (Portable or Fixed). The pouch is a one piece design with the water inlet & manifold permanently attached. This is possible because of the ability of the user to thoroughly clean the pouch while still attached to the body, sitting on a commode (toilet). Evacuated contents are deposited in the toilet and simply flushed away without any personal contact. When the EZ-System is not being used, the pouch can function like any other drainable pouch with the added advantage of the user being able to easily vent any accumulated gas through the inlet. It is important to note this characteristic because anyone concerned about becoming home bound by this system should realize this pouch can function like any drainable without using EZ-Clean. The system can operate in a range of 20 to 80 lbs of water pressure.

Late delay as Pacific trade talks near landmark deal
4 Oct 2015 at 7:56pm

U.S. officials, who are hosting the meeting, delayed a planned joint news conference until early Monday. On Saturday, Amari had said the next 24 hours would be a make-or-break period for the talks. After five years of negotiations, many officials had described this round as the best chance for an agreement, so failure to strike a deal in Atlanta would plunge the future of the talks into uncertainty.

Debris appears to belong to cargo ship missing in Bahamas
4 Oct 2015 at 2:35pm

By David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) - Search-and-rescue teams on Sunday located debris appearing to belong to the cargo ship El Faro, which went missing in the eye of Hurricane Joaquin with 33 mostly American crew members aboard, the U.S. Coast Guard and the ship's owner said. There was no sighting of the El Faro or any lifeboats, Tim Nolan, president of ship's owner Tote Maritime Puerto Rico, said in a statement. With no word on the fate of the crew, relatives gathered at a seafarers' union hall in Jacksonville, Florida where they were briefed by the Coast Guard and the ship owners.

World's 'extremely poor' to fall below 10 percent of global population: World...
4 Oct 2015 at 2:22pm
By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The number of people living in extreme poverty is likely to fall for the first time below 10 percent of the world's population in 2015, the World Bank said on Sunday as it revised its benchmark for measuring the problem. Extreme poverty has long been defined as living on or below $1.25 a day, but the World Bank's adjustment now sets the poverty line at $1.90 a day. The Bank said the change reflects new data on differences in the cost of living across countries, while preserving the real purchasing power of the previous yardstick.

Rolls-Royce to cut 400 marine division jobs: FT
4 Oct 2015 at 1:44pm

Chief Executive Warren East's aim with the marine restructuring will be to strip out management layers and rebase costs in a business that relies on an energy industry now hit by low global oil prices, the FT said. The job cuts are part of a long-term plan to shift the marine operations' manufacturing away from high-cost Scandinavian countries towards Asia, while retaining research and systems integration in northern Europe, FT said. Rolls Royce spokesman Richard Wray declined to comment.

Medical charity MSF demands independent probe into strike on Afghan hospital
4 Oct 2015 at 1:41pm

By Mirwais Harooni and Andrew MacAskill KABUL (Reuters) - Medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) on Sunday demanded an independent international inquiry into a suspected U.S. air strike that killed 22 people in an Afghan hospital it runs, branding the attack a "war crime". U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter promised a full investigation into whether the American military was connected to the destruction of the hospital, but cautioned it would take time to gather information. "We do know that American air assets ... were engaged in the Kunduz vicinity, and we do know that the structures that - you see in the news - were destroyed," Carter told reporters traveling with him shortly before landing in Spain on Sunday.

U.S. military says need time to probe battle near Afghan hospital
4 Oct 2015 at 12:45pm
By Phil Stewart MADRID (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter pledged on Sunday a full, transparent investigation into whether the U.S. military could be linked to the destruction of an Afghan hospital run by aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) that killed 22 people. "We do know that American air assets ... were engaged in the Kunduz vicinity, and we do know that the structures that -- you see in the news -- were destroyed," Carter told reporters traveling with him shortly before landing in Spain. "I just can't tell you what the connection is at this time." MSF on Sunday demanded an independent international inquiry, branding the attack a "war crime" and saying a U.S. military probe into the incident was not enough.

France to consider phasing out diesel tax breaks: minister
4 Oct 2015 at 11:59am

France is considering raising taxes on diesel over the next five years to end an advantage over gasoline and encourage drivers to choose cleaner cars, Environment Minister Segolene Royal said. Diesel's image has been tarnished by health warnings and in the past month by revelations that Volkswagen cheated on emissions tests in the United States, putting countries like France that have promoted diesel cars in recent decades in an awkward position. Royal, who is also responsible for transport, has in recent weeks rejected calls to ban diesel or end its tax breaks, but on Sunday backed the idea of phasing out the fuel's tax advantage.

Pacific trade talks near deal after reported pharma breakthrough
4 Oct 2015 at 9:59am

By Krista Hughes ATLANTA (Reuters) - A dozen Pacific nations were close to a deal on a sweeping free trade pact on Sunday in Atlanta after a breakthrough over how long a monopoly pharmaceutical companies should be given on new biotech drugs. The issue has pitted the United States, which has argued for longer protections, against Australia and five other delegations who say such measures would strain national healthcare budgets and keep life-saving medicines from patients who cannot afford them. Australia was happy with a compromise that would preserve its existing five-year protection period coupled with a buffer of extra time, a source close to the negotiations said.

MSF demands independent probe into Afghan hospital air strike that killed 22
4 Oct 2015 at 8:25am
Medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres on Sunday demanded that an independent international body investigate the air strike that hit an Afghan hospital, killing 22 people. "Under the clear presumption that a war crime has been committed, MSF demands that a full and transparent investigation into the event be conducted by an independent international body," MSF General Director Christopher Stokes said in a statement. MSF, which did not specify which international body would be acceptable, also raised the death toll from 19 to 22 staff and patients killed.

Speaking Freely of Guns
4 Oct 2015 at 8:19am

I am about to speak freely of guns, because I can. When I do, many of you will no doubt be inclined to mutter "amen," quietly to yourselves. Others of you will no doubt feel compelled to throw up all over me, as you have done under similar circumstances before. I expect to hear preferentially from the latter group, because they seem perennially...

U.S., Australia reach deal on pharma protection in TPP: Japan media
4 Oct 2015 at 7:41am

The United States and Australia have reached a compromise on the length of monopoly protection allowed for new biotech drugs in a development that could clear the way for a sweeping Pacific Rim trade deal, Japanese media reported on Sunday. The amount of time allowed for pharmaceutical companies to have exclusive rights to the clinical data for biological drugs has been the last major sticking point in the Trans-Pacific Partnership talks in Atlanta.
