"To get the compensation job done for a Navy Veteran or person with asbestos exposure lung cancer in Arizona we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO.”

— Arizona US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

PHOENIX , ARIZONA, USA, May 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Arizona US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer anywhere in Arizona to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 if the person had significant exposure to asbestos prior to 1982. Even if the person smoked cigarettes the compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000. Most people with lung cancer-and who had heavy exposure to asbestos never get compensated-even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. The person the Advocate is trying to identify is over 60 years old.

The Advocate says, "To get the compensation job done for a Navy Veteran or person with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO. The lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO have been assisting Navy Veterans and people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars for people like this. If you have lung cancer-and you had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work please call 800-714-0303 for direct access to the lawyers at Karst von Oiste to discuss compensation-what do you have to lose?" www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Arizona US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is offering to assist a Navy Veteran or person with asbestos exposure lung cancer in Arizona organize the how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. They call this free service the ‘list’ and it is this vital information that becomes the foundation for a compensation claim as the would be happy to explain at 800-714-0303. https://Arizona.USNavyLungCancer.Com

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is offering to assist people with asbestos exposure lung cancer in Phoenix, Tucson, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Gilbert, Tempe. Peoria, Prescott or anywhere in Arizona. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Individuals in the state of Arizona could have been exposed to asbestos while working at a power plant, at an industrial facility, at a steel mill, at an automobile manufacturing facility, at a chemical plant, as a plumber, a boiler technician, as an auto repairman, as an electrician, or in the construction industry. In most cases, the exposure to asbestos caused mesothelioma at one of these types of workplaces and the exposure took place in the 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s, or 1980′s. Mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer typically takes three to five decades to appear. https://Arizona.USNavyLungCancer.Com

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. However, there are people with asbestos exposure lung cancer in Arizona. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The follow-up book to Diversity and Inclusion The Submarine Way, UP PERISCOPE is tapping into the author's patent published system to drive effective leadership

Not only did John enlighten us as to the meaning of our assessments, but he also taught us how to capitalize on them through the power of being ‘pointy.’ A completely unique use of these tools.”

— Garret Harrell – Marine Raider

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA, US, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is a good reason that "Putting Traditional Leadership in the Crosshairs" is in the title of this book. Look no further than the good and poor examples of situational leadership on display on a daily basis. For organizations to be successful in our new reality they will need agile, resilient leadership based on a proven system. This book is built on the foundation found in place onboard the most sophisticated vessel ever designed to operate in the universe. It operates in the unforgiving, dangerous world beneath our oceans. Perhaps most astonishing is it is operated by a crew with an average age of 22, 80% of which have no more than a high school diploma. Due to agile, resilient leadership there has never been a nuclear accident on board these nuclear-powered submarines. The world will benefit from these universal truths. The Submarine Way works and this new book with helping everyone who reads it drive more effective inclusive leadership.

Most leadership books are long on theory and very very short on solutions, specific tools to drive more effective results. We do not take the easy road in UP PERISCOPE. The co-authors blend their expertise gained from senior leadership in Fortune 300 companies with that gained from being The Gallup Organizations top client rated consultant in the world to bring a dose of reality to developing leaders effectively.

This new book not only builds on their first bestseller, Diversity and Inclusion The Submarine Way with submarine stories around leadership secrets surfaced from this secret world. It goes further into the elements of their patent published leadership development through the inclusion system and specific actions they have helped their clients implement, leading to significant, measurable results.

This new book is about reality, not hype. Below is taken directly from a chapter in UP PERISCOPE, Putting Traditional Leadership in the Crosshairs to demonstrate just one of the numerous, contrarian but highly effective leadership development approaches that will absolutely drive more agile, resilient leaders.

Caring Leaders Do Not Take Care of People

Yes, you heard me right. People who are taken care of do not learn to make independent decisions, or how to handle issues in a crisis and they don’t teach others how to develop people to make good decisions or operate independently. Excellent leaders understand they are responsible for an outcome. They understand others are accountable for the outcome as well, but they teach others to get the job done and to get it done right. Five things a leader can do to teach a person to fish, so they can eat for the rest of their life:

1. Roles and jobs should have talent considerations. Individuals should be placed in jobs where their talents and strengths can contribute.

2. Mistakes happen. We all learn from our mistakes as well as our successes. If individuals do not feel safe to make mistakes, they will not innovate.

3. Give individuals latitude to achieve the mission. If there is no latitude, be honest.

4. Allow individuals access to you to ask questions. Avoid taking over the project. Coach them to a good decision.

5. Make sure there are good plans behind important initiatives, including those that involve developing people.

Authentic caring is demonstrated through genuine relationships with the people the leader interfaces with and leads. These relationships have integrity at the root and are built on an ethical foundation. More to follow on the importance of integrity in leading others. The same with strengths. A good leader knows his/her strengths and looks to maximize these with those they lead. They also look to their people to fill in the gaps created by their lack of expertise in an area.

For more than a decade The Submarine Way has been guiding and partnering with organizations of all types and sizes to drive leadership through our patent published lens of inclusion. Our goal is simple, change our workplaces, communities, and schools forever. We have a better way, we know a better way and we have the results and the patent to back up its unique and powerful approach. Let's get a copy of this new book in everyone's hands.

Interested parties can learn more or register for the conference at: http://www.defencesafety.com/EINpr2

This year, the conference will include a crucial safety briefing from the Royal Navy:

"Warfighting, Safely: The Right Culture to Maximise Operational Effectiveness"

• The purpose of Navies and reality of the job – being “safe” in order to deliver violence to our enemies?
• Embedding safety in our operational thinking – the importance of leadership and communication, inculcated safety culture
• The risk balance: maximising lethality without compromising our people
• Is there are trade-off between operational imperative and operating safely? – mission success vs. preserving equipment

Presented by Vice Admiral Jerry Kyd, Fleet Commander, Royal Navy

CCHR Honors the Fallen on Memorial Day: Questions Mental Health-Treatment Deaths

CCHR Honors the Fallen on Memorial Day

In honoring the nation’s veterans and service members, mental health watchdog, CCHR, questions potential roll of psychotropic drugs & electroshock in 20-per-day vet suicides and service member suicides.

In honoring the nation’s veterans and service members, CCHR, questions potential roll of psychotropic drugs & electroshock in 20-per-day suicides

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. It also recognizes the shocking number of veterans and service members that have taken their own lives. Despite highly touted efforts to curb the suicide rate among these dedicated groups, suicides remain high and the mental health industry watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR) is calling on Congress to increase efforts to investigate this.

It wants the military and Veteran Affairs (VA) to disclose whether psychiatric drugs were tested for and present in suicide autopsies.

In 2013, $107 million was set aside for mental-health treatment for veterans; in 2018, the VA committed more than $186 million to prevent suicide. The total VA mental health budget soared more than 65% between 2011 and 2019, from $5.2 billion to more than $8.6 billion.[1] Yet, 6,139 U.S. veterans committed suicide in 2017, or 17 per day compared to 16 per day in 2005.[2] The number of suicides by active duty service members jumped from 285 to 325 between 2017 and 2018.[3] There were also 919 suicides among never federally activated former National Guard and Reserve members in 2017, an average 2.5 suicide deaths per day—or a combined total of 20 every day.[4]

Suicide—not combat—is the leading killer of U.S. troops deployed to the Middle East to fight Islamic State militants, Pentagon statistics show.[5] While an average of 4,200 veterans die by firearm suicide every year[6], it’s unknown how many of them were taking a psychiatric drug or withdrawing from one or cocktails of them—a vital correlation for families and governments to know.

Potentially, psychotropic drugs induce the “mental trigger” that drives service members and vets to take their own lives.

International drug regulatory agency reports warn these drugs can cause suicide, violence, mania, psychosis, aggression, hallucinations, death and much more.[7]

Current public data on military and VA use of and expenditure on psychotropic drugs is sparse. What is known is that in 2010, 1.85 million veterans filled at least one psychiatric drug prescription.[8] Approximately 37% of war veterans have been labeled with PTSD, of which 80% were prescribed a psychiatric drug. Reported in 2011, of the veterans receiving psychiatric drugs for PTSD, 89% are prescribed antidepressants and 34% prescribed antipsychotics—both classes of drugs are linked to suicide or death.[9]

Between 2005 and 2011, the military increased its prescriptions of psychoactive drugs (antipsychotics, sedatives, stimulants and mood stabilizers) by almost 700%.[10]

The 2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report reported that over 800,000 veterans received “medication” for mental health disorders in Veterans Health Administration (VHA) compared to over 500,000 comparable individuals in the private sector—or 30% higher.[11] Information on how many recipients of the drugs attempted or committed suicide is not discussed in the report.

The age breakdown of those receiving antidepressants is important, CCHR says. Antidepressants carry an FDA “black-box” warning of “suicidality” for those younger than 25, yet these drugs are prescribed to this age group in the military. The VA reported that the suicide rate of veterans aged 18 to 34 jumped more than 10% between 2015 and 2016.[12] 41% of deployed American soldiers are aged 18-24.[13]

Psychotropic drug use is also linked to America’s failed community mental health program that started in the 1960s. People were discharged from hospitals on powerful, debilitating antipsychotics, which California investigators determined rather than speeding people's return to the community, hindered recovery.[14] The drugs helped spawn the massive homeless situation the U.S. now faces.

In 2017, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Point-in-Time Count estimated that 40,000 veterans were homeless and just over 15,300 were living on the street or unsheltered on any given night.[15] Again, the lack of information on how many have been placed on a psychotropic drug treadmill is unknown.

Hundreds of veterans are also given brain-damaging electroshock and this does not include those given it in private or non-contracting VA institutions. In 2015, 140 of the VA’s healthcare facilities—approximately 49%—delivered electroshock.[16] The VA has spent more than $1 million on electroshock devices and related parts, despite the device manufacturers having never provided clinical trials proving safety and efficacy.[17] CCHR’s online petition to ban ECT shows more than 120,000 people who would agree ECT should not be used on our vets and service members.

Memorial Day is this nation’s opportunity to remember those who have courageously served on the front lines and made profound sacrifices to ensure the freedoms we continue to enjoy. They deserve the very best services, which doesn’t include treatment that harms or kills in the name of mental health care.
