New Haven resident recognized for "outstanding artistic contributions"


New Haven resident Morgen Bromell ’10 was one of 14 Miss Porter’s School students recognized by the Connecticut Scholastic Art Awards program for their outstanding artistic contributions, the school said in a statement.

Morgen, shown, received a silver key award for painting. The silver key is awarded to works worthy of recognition on the regional level, the statement said. Miss Porter's School is in Farmington.
Students who enter the competition are "already a select group, as they must be chosen by an art teacher at their school," the school's statement said.

Each art teacher may select up to four students to enter the competition. Seniors may choose to submit Art Portfolios, which consist of eight entries. Accepted portfolios are called gold portfolios, and are submitted to the National Scholastic Art Competition. Student artwork is judged by professional artists and university art faculty, who select winners of the gold portfolio, gold and silver keys and honorable mention in each of 17 media categories.
Awards will be presented at a ceremony on Jan. 31, and an exhibit of artwork by Scholastic Art Awards winners will be on display at the Silpe Gallery at Hartford Art School in West Hartford until Feb. 5.

The Connecticut Scholastic Art Awards program is an affiliate of The Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, and is sponsored by the Connecticut Art Education Association.

Located in the center of Farmington, Conn., Porter’s is a college preparatory boarding and day school for girls in grades nine through 12. It was founded in 1843.

TREATMENT FOR CHEST PAIN
Chest pain is considered a chief symptom of heart related problems. It can occur due to various causes such as heart attack, pulmonary embolism, thoracic aortic dissection, oesophageal rupture, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade.

By conducting several medical tests, the above causes could be ruled out or treated as recommended by medical professionals. If acute chest pain occurs, the patient should be admitted immediately for observation and sequential E.C.G.'s are followed up.

Just like in all medical cases, a careful medical history and detailed physical examination is essential in separating dangerous from minor/trivial causes of disease. Sometimes, there is need of rapid diagnosis to save life of patient. A deep study of recent health changes, family history, tobacco consumption, smoking, diabetes, eating disorders, etc. is useful in treatment of chest pain.

Features of chest pain could be generalised as heaviness; radiation of the pain to neck, jaw or left arm; sweating; nausea; palpitations; pain coming from exertion; dizziness; shortness of breath and a sense of impending doom. On the basis of these characteristics, a number of tests can be carried out for proper treatment. X-ray and CT scan of the chest help in determining the basic cause of pain. An electrocardiogram helps in detailed study of the problem.
