2015 Honda VT1300 Fury 1300 ABS - Al Lamb's Dallas Honda

When you ride a VT1300CX ABS Fury, you’re the center of attention – whether you’re cruising through town or out on the open highway. Spanning nearly six feet from axle to axle, this is one long and lean machine. Best of all, you have two Fury custom motorcycles to choose from: Our standard VT1300 CX Fury, or the ABS version for riders who want an added level of stopping control in less-than-ideal environments.

What makes the VT1300CX ABS Fury stand out? Let’s break it down. The standard – if you can call the Fury standard – integrates a single powerful 336mm-diameter front disc brake is complemented by a 296mm rear disc brake. With Honda’s innovative anti-lock brake system (ABS), cruiser motorcycle drivers have the added security and stopping power that only Honda engineering can deliver. After all, the road can throw anything at you – from wet pavement to sand and other debris on the road.

ABS is designed to help custom motorcycle tires achieve optimal deceleration and stopping performance while preventing them from exceeding their limits of grip. As a result, it’s possible to maintain efficient and effective braking control over a wide variety of riding conditions. You have the added confidence when applying brakes in emergency maneuvers or on slippery roads. Simpler braking with the VT1300CX ABS Fury increases any riding enjoyment.

Dr. Richard Isaacs and Kaiser promotes healthy babies


Kaiser pushes for greater breast-feeding success among moms

The healthiest thing any child will ever consume is his or her mother’s breast milk. Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento wants to make certain new mothers learn how to breastfeed their babies before they leave the hospital to increase the future good health (http://www.ucomparehealthcare.com/drs/richard_isaacs/) for babies.

Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento was recently designated a “Baby Friendly” hospital in accordance with the World Health Organization’s Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative.

The staff had a small celebration on Aug. 14.

Max Villalobos, senior vice president for Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento said, “This is an international recognition.”

He said a special thanks to Barb Hansen, assistant manager of health education, and Cheryl Cox, manager of the perinatal services unit.

“Sometimes we overuse words, but this is prestigious,” he said.

Currently, Kaiser South Sacramento is one of 83 hospitals nationwide to fulfill the program’s 10-step process to become baby friendly.

The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative was launched in 1991 with help from UNICEF. Kaiser staff received a certificate of intent to work towards being admitted to the Baby Friendly program in 1993.

Physician-in-Chief, Dr. Richard S. Isaacs (https://www.facebook.com/Dr-Richard-Isaacs-548663725287413) thanked the staff for their commitment. Isaacs, an ear, nose and throat doctor, said he learned that breast-feeding a baby causes fewer ear infections as they grow.

“It gives the child the best start,” he said. “It gives them natural immunity, it helps prevent infection, and it gives them tremendous nutrition. But more importantly it’s an emotional bond between the mother and the child.”

Debra Payne, program planner for First 5 Sacramento was at the Aug. 14 ceremony to congratulate the staff. First 5 Sacramento was involved with this program at Kaiser too.

Joni Wuthrich, director of prenatal services (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-woDHMK1M_s&feature=youtu.be), said the staff have undergone training courses, learning the importance of encouraging breast-feeding over formula and allowing new mothers to “room in,” or stay with their baby the entire hour after delivery to breastfeed.

“I’ve been a nurse for 34 years and every single year more research comes out about how good breast-feeding is for babies,” she said.

Dessiree Whitehurst gave birth to her first child, a girl, on Aug. 13 at Kaiser in South Sacramento. The fact that Kaiser South Sacramento is in the Baby Friendly program and promotes breast-feeding amongst new mothers was reassuring to her as a new mom, she said.

“I’ve heard so many things like ‘It’s hard to breastfeed,’” she said. “Knowing that there is so much help- it’s really good for me.”

Whitehurst had already started breast-feeding her baby by the next day.

As part of the Baby Friendly Initiative, Kaiser will not accept free formula from vendors.

“We separated our relationship with formula vendors and that is a part of baby friendly too,” Wuthrich said.

Formula is prescribed when it is medically recommended for babies, rather than being a substitute for milk.

Wuthrich said baby formula is healthy, but human milk is better.

Not all women have to breast-feed, they support family choice too, she added.

About CMA
CMA is a professional organization representing the physicians of the state of California.

The association was founded in 1856 by a small group of physicians who knew it was their duty to fight for their patients and for their profession (http://www.angieslist.com/companylist/us/ca/sacramento/richard-isaacs-md-reviews-6832256.htm). Confronted with the challenges of rampant quackery, epidemics of contagious disease, and a desperate need to establish standards for the profession, physician leaders of the time called upon their colleagues to help them form the Medical Society of the State of California (as it was called back then) “to develop, in the highest possible degree, the scientific truths embodied in the profession
