16 days against (gender) violence


Ha All

AMMC is lately not so active on AMMC grounds, however AMMC staff has been pretty active lately. On Diabetes day a workshop was given and the rest of this article is about an upcoming event where 2 AMMC staff members are active, the event is:

16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence

is an annual international campaign that dates from 1991, and originates from the Center for Women’s Global Leadership at Rutgers University, New Jersey. Beginning on November 25 of each year (the International Day against Violence against Women), events run world-wide through to December 10, International Human Rights Day

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence in Second Life will parallel the “real world” event, and is fueled by the participation of over a dozen activist SL groups, and many dozens of individuals. It will feature panel discussions, workshops, presentations, art exhibits, poetry readings, and live music.

When you like to visit, these events within Second life, please use the link on the top of this web page, you arrive in AMMC hospital, in the information building is a poster, with the same image as the article image. When you click it, it gives you a note card with the program.

Hunt for clues, solve mysteries, discover, find out the ancient old secret of mankind. Complete the trail and relax at the bar, meet other travelers on the puzzle huntand most important, leave your proof of completing your hunt, in the mailbox.

Sit back kick back and relax, this puzzle hunt is organized to, give you the thrill of the hunt, but more important to support Relay for Life, when you start your hunt and when you end it, you see donation jars. AMMC hopes that all participants in the puzzle hunt donate, every Linden is welcome and 100% of your donation goes to ACS (American Cancer Society)

First clue in this puzzle hunt, after arriving locate the Conference center and collect your hunting license,

Pulse-Oximeter in AMMC

The Ann Myers Medical Center in Second Life, the virtual world, aims to train medical students and nurses through case presentations. The more realistic these medical simulations are, the more efficiently the education can be. That’s why the new pulse-oximeter in our center could be really helpful during the exercises. Here is a screenshot of the ITU:

What you can edit on the monitor:

  • BPM
  • oxygen saturation
  • temperature
  • blood pressure

And the monitor itself:

Take a look at it yourself.
