The Dengue Hydration Center situated at the Xerem health center and has been responsible for operating since 15 h is what the state government is currently riding on. Currently the center only has 12 seats of hydration and is able to serve up to 300 individuals on a single day.

The health center is also a preventive action of the Health Department which is meant to support the municipality in regard to the total amount of garbage that has been collected in the city thereby increasing the proliferation of the dengue mosquito.
Sergio Cortes agreed in a meeting with Camillo Junqueira, the health secretary of the municipality that the state was going to deliver another kit Caxias disaster in addition to the extra 3000 tablets.
All the measures were taken by the Health State Department which was available in the region with the Epidemiological Surveillance teams which until now is aiming to prevent the spread of diseases whose main contagion is contaminated water.
The initial batch of samples which were collected in the seven shelters by the Health Surveillance was categorized as being unsatisfactory by the Central Laboratory. The major groups that are living in the shelters are around their homes and should do the same; consider food hygiene and use bottled water.
The situation room has been mounted on the Xerem Health post which is meant for monitoring all the health actions in the entire region. In the coming days, another disaster kit will be sent to the region in addition to the measurers which have been listed above.

Snoop Dogg, Autism and Music

The words Snoop Dogg, autism and music might not make much sense together, but the combination of those three things led to the founding of one of the most innovative autism charities today, Autism Rocks.

The non-profit organization supports autism research by teaming up with international celebrities. Famous musicians like Prince and Elvis Costello donate their time and talent to perform at special concerts where donors give anywhere from $750 t $1,500. What makes Autism Rocks standout among many charity fundraisers is the exclusive feel of the top-secret concerts. Their methods are apparently working, because their first concert raised over $3 million.

For the founder of Autism Rocks, Sanjay Shah, the charity is a combination of several of his passions, particularly music and family. Shah’s interest in autism research began when his own son was diagnosed with the condition. He says, “As a dad your first question is ‘How can I fix this?’ And when you’re told you can’t – that it’s something that you have to live with – it’s very hard. But if it can’t be solved, you have to ask yourself, ‘What’s the next best thing I can do?” Shah decided that while there were many resources providing support for families with autistic children, there wasn’t enough money being dedicated to researching the causes of the condition, so he decided to focus his efforts on supporting research.

Shah was a very successful hedge fund manager whose company had grown to the point where he was able to semi-retire. After a visit from rapper Snoop Dogg, Shah was reminded of his interest in music and organizing concerts. He decided to organize an event, which although not very profitable, led to a connection with Prince. Combining his interest in music with his dedication to autism research, Shah organized the first Autism Rocks concert. Since then, he’s worked with more artists, arranged other concerts and even has hopes for a compilation album. Autism Rocks is a real benefit to autism research, and it all started with a visit from Snoop Dogg.
