Arise For Social Justice
I read the Mission Statement, "Arise for Justice is an...anti-oppression advocacy group in Springfield, MA, that aims to build awareness and political power for rthe poor so we can survive and thrive...." I did not recieve accurate info regarding Landlord/Tenant Issues. I filed w/ M.C.A.D. and simply called Arise for support via advocacy and the power the survive and thrive, however was told the Landlord has the right to make a tenant leave without probable cause. Not so.Same rights apply to tenants w/ or w/o (Tenant at Will) a Lease. Then told "Well there is nothing else we can do for you (since already filed w/ M.C.A.D.). AND... "M.C.A.D. takes years!" Not so. WOuld the board bring the members who never told me their name, nor asked my name to update their data on M.G.L. s (she didn't know this either) Springfield Courthouse has a LAw Library and Arise members need to get the latest Amendments to M.G.L. 151, (b), (f) and 186 entirely and 285E. The 1st item to help a tenant is to File an E.R. Restraining Order against the Landlord. Not 1 of them told me to do that. I find this area sadly lacking in the laws protecting Tenancy, and that is the reason for too much homelessness in MA. I am disabled, told the 2 members and they know not the lasws protecting People w/ a Disablitiy. 2nd reason many people are homeless in MA. I feel most discriminated in Springfield, MA than anywhere else. I lived in Hampshire Cty, and Worcester Cty, and no one is educated in the rights of people w/ Disability (ies) . Arise did not live up to the Advocacy or empowering w/ me because they are not able to help me further than old M.G.L.s. and never even asked my name. Advocacy involves real support in and out of court. Please do so.
Tips & Advices
Balloon sinuplasty, or BSP, is a treatment for people with chronic or recurrent sinusitis. It's a safe, noninvasive and highly effective procedure that is becoming more common among ENTs. To perform BSP, the doctor inserts a small, flexible catheter into the sinus passageway. Next, the catheter is expanded, as like a balloon, to open up the cavity and allow built-up mucus to drain. This also widens the sinus cavity and restructures it to discourage further blockage after the procedure is completed. Then, a saline solution is sprayed into the cavity to wash out any remaining pus or mucus. Finally, the balloon is removed. Most patients find they experience fewer sinus-related symptoms and little to no device-related complications following the procedure.
For basic cases, a decongestant or saline nasal wash can treat sinusitis. A doctor can prescribe these or recommend an over-the-counter remedy. If the sinusitis persists for more than three days, further treatment should be sought. In other cases, a doctor may prescribe antibiotics or steroids. These often are taken over the course of 10 days to two weeks. Warm, moist air, such as that created by a vaporizer or a bowl of hot water, may also treat chronic sinusitis.
Pressure in the ears, also called ear barotrauma, is caused by blockage in the Eustachian tube, which spans from the rear of the nasal cavity to the middle of the ear space. Ear barotrauma is most commonly caused by altitude changes, as in plane rides, scuba diving, or hiking or driving through the mountains.
There are many causes of hoarseness. Common causes include:
  • Acute laryngitis
  • Smoking
  • Excessive use or strain on the vocal chords
Tonsils are two soft, small tissue masses located at the back of the throat. They are a part of the lymphatic system, which helps fight infections, though tonsils don't seem to play a large role in this process. Recurrent tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils), which can be caused by strep throat or other infections, could mean having them removed.
