NEWS SCAN: Avian flu, social media at HHS, Salmonella in sprouts, food safety legislation, hospital infections

first_imgMar 4, 2009OIE raises concerns about poultry vaccinationThe World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) today issued a statement warning that countries shouldn’t depend on poultry vaccination as a long-term strategy to control the spread of the H5N1 virus, because it can mask the presence of the virus. Vaccine campaigns are warranted when countries lack the capacity to conduct surveillance and quickly respond to the outbreaks, but they should contain an “exit strategy” to return to classic disease-control measures. Some health officials have questioned the efficacy of China’s vaccination program in light of several recent human cases combined with a lack of information about poultry outbreaks. Meanwhile, the agriculture ministry in Vietnam, another country that vaccinates poultry, announced the formation today of five working groups to address recent flare-ups of avian flu, according to Xinhua, China’s state news agency.[Mar 4 OIE statement]Egypt detects H5N1 at 9 more sitesEgyptian animal health officials have linked the H5N1 virus to several fresh outbreaks, including seven backyard bird locations in Aswan, Suez, and Behera governorates, Egypt-based Strengthening Avian Influenza Detection and Response (SAIDR) reported today. Outbreaks also struck a chicken farm in Helwan governorate and a turkey farm in Sharkiya governorate.HHS organizes social media resourcesThe Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently launched an initiative that makes many of its online resources interactive, including having a presence on social-media networks such as Twitter and MySpace. Now the department has organized portals to resources for all its agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Food and Drug Administration (FDA), onto a single Web page that includes links to blogs, widgets, podcasts, and RSS feeds.[HHS social media site]Nebraska officials suspect sprouts as Salmonella sourceAn epidemiologic investigation in Nebraska has tentatively linked alfalfa sprouts to a Salmonella Saintpaul outbreak that has sickened at least 14 people so far, the state’s health department said yesterday. The sprouts were produced by a local grower, Omaha-based CW Sprouts, which has recalled the products, and Nebraska laboratory authorities are conducting tests on the company’s alfalfa seeds and sprouts. Aside from the 14 confirmed cases, officials have identified 4 probable cases and 8 to 10 possible cases. The Minnesota Public Health Laboratory is analyzing samples from the patients to confirm that the Salmonella samples shares the same genetic fingerprint.Senators propose new food safety measuresA bipartisan group of eight US Senators yesterday introduced a bill to give the FDA more power to address food safety issues, according to a report today from the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The legislation would increase inspections of food processors, require plants to have federally reviewed food-hazard prevention plans, expand access to internal laboratory testing results, allow the FDA to order mandatory recalls when companies don’t act voluntarily, and set standards for fresh produce safety. Three major food companies—General Mills, Kraft, and Kellogg—are supporting the legislation, signaling a shift in their past resistance to increased food safety regulation, Bloomberg News reported today.APIC offers tips for safe hospital visitsVisitors to healthcare facilities can help protect patients by observing simple safety tips, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) said today in advance of Patient Safety Awareness Week, Mar 8-14. To prevent infections, APIC recommends that visitors: sanitize their hands before and after visits; stay home if sick; check with healthcare staff before bringing food, flowers, or kids; observe special precautions before entering patient rooms; limit clutter in patient rooms; avoid visiting multiple patients; and follow discharge instructions once the patient returns home.[Mar 4 APIC press release]last_img read more

Thanks to Tedisco for protecting kids

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I would like  to show my support in  favor of New York state Sen. Jim Tedisco proposing a law that help fund armed school resource officers among other resources for school districts through a license plate program. The Guardians for Schools license plate program is a step in the right direction. I feel it will be of great value in trying to combat gun violence, which is affecting our schools.Schools are meant to be safe because they are sites of growth and development for young people. Parents should never have to fear that their children will lose their lives to senseless gun violence. Sen. Tedisco, thank you for showing that you really care. I know that I speak for a lot of other people. We are very proud of you.Walter “Neal” BrazellRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsCar hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burnEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationRotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighborEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

Onyewu’s prophecy: 2026 World Cup will inspire new generation of USMNT stars

first_imgFor an entire generation of American soccer fans, there are no words to truly describe what the 1994 World Cup meant. It was a turning point that showed that soccer was finally a sport worth caring about and maybe, just maybe, a sport that can turn into a livelihood. Oguchi Onyewu was a member of that generation, one that was captivated by what turned out to be a life-changing summer of soccer. The American-born son of Nigerian immigrants, then-12-year-old Onyewu watched on as the world’s biggest tournament took place in the U.S., lighting a torch that he and a generation of U.S. men’s national team stars would eventually run with while lifting American soccer to new heights. Right now, the U.S. is preparing for another one of those groundbreaking moments, and Onyewu believes that the impact this time around will make those old World Cup memories look like nothing more than a starting point.Advertisement Loading… In 2026, the World Cup will return to the U.S. as part of a three-way hosting split with neighbours Mexico and Canada. Over 30 years after the game truly arrived on American soil, the 2026 tournament serves as a long-awaited sequel, and Onyewu believes that this one will prove an even bigger cultural phenomenon. “Prior to that 1994 World Cup, I had no aspirations or dreams of being a professional soccer player in any way shape or form,” Onyewu tells Goal. “I didn’t even know playing professional soccer would be even possible or a lucrative career. “Seeing the excitement around America, and seeing the excitement around the U.S. team, and me being from Nigeria seeing the excitement around different nations and their ethnicities and the pride, and the 1996 season of MLS that started and the explosion of soccer in this country up into what it is now, I think that 2026 will be a phase two of that. “It will have even more of an impact because if you compare the interest of soccer in 1994 to the interest of soccer today in 2020, it’s night and day. So by comparison, the impact will also be night and day and it could be even more important for the development of the sport in this country.” Onyewu was a product of that 1994 World Cup, becoming an integral part of the USMNT for a decade. The former Newcastle, Standard Liege, AC Milan and Sporting C.P. defender earned 69 caps throughout his career, becoming a mainstay for the U.S. at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.And, as the U.S. prepares for the 2026 tournament, Onyewu is getting involved in a whole new way: he is now an ambassador for Baltimore’s bid to host in the 2026 tournament.Baltimore is one of 17 cities vying to host matches during the tournament, but the only one that does not have an MLS franchise in the immediate vicinity.Yet, Onyewu, who grew up in nearby Olney, Maryland, believes that the city, and the D.C, Maryland, Virginia area – affectionately known as the DMV – has proven to be a soccer hotbed that would embrace the beautiful chaos of a World Cup.read also:Top 10 African Players Of The Last Decade: Aminu, Diogu, Oguchi listed“I think that you have to take that, that terminology lightly: ‘soccer town’,” he insists. “If you look at Salt Lake City, Utah. would you say that’s more of a soccer town than Baltimore? Would you say that Kansas City is more of a soccer town than Baltimore? San Jose is more of a soccer town to Baltimore? I don’t think so.”He added: “I do believe that this is gonna be awesome for [the younger] generation. It’s gonna be amazing to see the impact that it’s going to have and I’m excited to get the opportunity to tie Baltimore and my home state back into this. This will be, it could be, a legacy for the city and for the DMV for decades to come.”While Onewyu is a former player and now an ambassador, he is also a fan. He was left disappointed by the USMNT’s failures to qualify last time around in 2019, robbing a group of players of the chance to have the experience in Russia that he did in Germany and South Africa.As he looks on, Onyewu believes that this new generation will be unfairly asked to atone for those 2018 failures, and that they will have to prove that they’re good enough to overcome such pressures.So far they have done just that. Americans are moving to Europe’s top teams more than ever before, with Christian Pulisic starring at Chelsea, Tyler Adams scoring Champions League-winners for RB Leipzig and Weston McKennie joining Juventus.There are a handful of young Americans scattered throughout the world’s top leagues, and that gives Onyewu hope.Perhaps the most inspiring part, he says, is their youth. This, in theory, will be a group that sticks together for years to come, through 2022 in Qatar and, hopefully, 2026 on home soil.“I really believe that they have an immense amount of talent in that pool and they are young,” he says. “So one thing with talent, when you’re young you don’t have the experience yet, and I think right now they’re learning the experience.“Hopefully they will bring back much-needed know-how to the national team program in some way, shape, or form, and then we can push this forward.“Let’s be honest – with the national team, it’s not getting older anytime soon, right? They have years to grow into each other until they’re able to gel into what we expect them to become.”If that happens, the current generation will get to experience moments like Onyewu, Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard, and DaMarcus Beasley did throughout their decorated careers.And, just like the 1994 team-inspired Onyewu and how Onyewu’s team inspired this group, perhaps they will be the ones that usher in the new generation.“The current generation of national team players and, realistically the current generation of all players right now, haven’t known America without an MLS, they haven’t known the United States without a professional league,” he said. “And so their interest is already there, to bring back that excitement of a World Cup.“There’s nothing like a World Cup, I don’t even know if I can explain it to you because I was the player in two of them in Germany and South Africa and there is nothing that can emulate the excitement around a World Cup.“I think that that’s going to just ignite that soccer love, even more so than it is now.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The UniverseA Guy Turns Gray Walls And Simple Bricks Into Works Of ArtPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?The Highest Paid Football Players In The WorldWhat Happens When You Eat Eggs Every Single Day?Who Earns More Than Ronaldo?6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually Truelast_img read more

Inter forward Icardi reportedly set for move to Paris St Germain

first_imgRelatedPosts Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter I wanted Manchester United exit after one training session — Sanchez Neymar, Di Maria, Paredes test positive for COVID-19 Inter Milan forward, Mauro Icardi, his club’s leading scorer in each of the last five seasons and former captain, is set to join Paris St Germain, the Gazzetta Dello Sport and other Italian media said Monday. The move would end a turbulent spell at the club for the Argentine, who has fallen out with fans along on the way and provided fodder for the gossip columns, thanks to his marriage to Wanda Nara, a media personality who also acts as his agent. Gazzetta published what it said was a photograph of Icardi and Nara at Malpensa airport, saying would board a private jet for Paris to finalise a loan spell at PSG with an option to buy. Other Italian media carried the same story, including Sky Sport Italia. The 26-year-old, an out-and-out centre forward, who is deadly in the penalty area but whose contribution elsewhere on the pitch has been questioned, has scored 124 goals in 219 appearances in all competitions during six years at the club. Despite his scoring exploits, Icardi fell out with Inter’s hardcore fans over an account of an argument with supporters in his autobiography in 2016. Curva Nord ultras responded that “Icardi is not our captain, not now or ever’’ and applauded when he missed a penalty in one of Inter’s next games. In February, he was stripped of the captaincy after becoming embroiled in protracted negotiations over a new contract. He then said he could not play because of a knee injury although the club said a medical examination had found nothing wrong. He returned to the side in April after talks between his lawyer and the club, although Luciano Spalletti, the Inter coach at the time, said it had been “humiliating” for Inter to have to negotiate with a player to get him to play. Spalletti left Inter at the end of last season and was replaced by Antonio Conte, who said that Icardi did not figure in his plans for the future.Tags: Inter MilanMauro IcardiPSGlast_img read more

Dawson bidding to down Baggies

first_img The Merseysiders have also had injuries to contend with, but Everton defender Sylvain Distin says the squad must keep pushing on, with a tough-looking trip to Manchester City on Saturday up next. Reflecting on the Hull game, Distin told evertontv: “It was very frustrating. “We didn’t lose the game but we feel like we have lost. We felt the frustration from the fans as well. “Hull made it tough for us and it was difficult to play forward at times. “We have had a lot of games and that’s going to continue. “We have to move on because it is a big game this weekend, then next week, then the following weekend.” Meanwhile, Hull midfielder Mohamed Diame is set for scans on his knee after limping off in the Everton game due to an ongoing tendon problem. And Bruce fears Diame could be out for as long as six weeks. The manager said: “It’s been an ongoing tendonitis problem and the alternative may be an injection. “That could rule him out for a month or six weeks. “We’ll have some more scans and see how he is.” Bruce also said a knee injury that forced David Meyler off only appeared to be a nasty cut. Ending a run of four straight defeats, Steve Bruce’s men drew 1-1 with Everton at Goodison Park after a strike around the hour mark from substitute Sone Aluko cancelled out Romelu Lukaku’s first-half opener for the hosts. Hull – above the relegation zone on goal difference alone – have also secured creditable draws at Arsenal and Liverpool this term. Michael Dawson was delighted Hull once again took a point from a trip to one of the Barclays Premier League’s major sides but feels games like Saturday’s against West Brom hold the key to the Tigers’ season. But Dawson sees the truly vital fixtures for the team being those where they are taking on outfits lower down the table. Hull boss Steve Bruce stressed after Wednesday’s match that the points his side claimed from such matches last term, their top-flight comeback season, were ultimately the reason they beat the drop. And when asked if games like Saturday’s visit to the KC Stadium of West Brom are what will define Hull’s 2014-15 campaign, Tigers centre-back Dawson said: “Yes, of course they are. “You look at our recent performances away from home, when we have been to the Emirates Stadium, Anfield and now Goodison Park, and we have taken a point each time. “We can take a lot out of this – even in the first half (against Everton), with as much possession as they had, how many shots did they have on goal? Not too many. “But yes, the games against the likes of West Brom and other teams that are going to be around us are where we really need to pick up the points.” While it proved a constructive evening for Hull, Wednesday was frustrating for Everton, who had looked well in control in the first half but faded badly as the contest wore on and were booed off at the end by some fans. Toffees boss Roberto Martinez – whose side have been playing in the Europa League group stages on top of their domestic fixtures, qualifying for the knockout rounds – admitted tiredness had been a factor.

Sherwood wants the best of Benteke

first_imgAston Villa boss Tim Sherwood challenged Christian Benteke to fire himself back to form and throw the matchball in his doubters’ faces. The misfiring striker has scored just three times this season with Villa second bottom of the Barclays Premier League ahead of Saturday’s trip to Newcastle. Villa are the lowest scoring team in the top flight having hit just 13 goals in 26 games this season. Press Associationcenter_img Benteke has contributed just two of those and Sherwood threw down the gauntlet to the Belgium hitman ahead of their trip to the north-east. “I want to see him take the matchball with a hat-trick and throw it back in people’s faces,” he said. “Teams should be scared of him. They’ve got memories like me. I remember him terrorising defenders. We need to get him back to that. He’s only young. “We don’t want to try to patronise him, we want to try to tell him some home truths, ‘you were one of the best strikers in the country and everybody wanted you, Aston Villa didn’t want to sell you and now we need to get you back to that.’ It’s in there. It’s not a flash in the pan, it’s embedded into him. “He scores one in two. He’s a prolific goalscorer and we need to help him. The rest of the group need to help him – but we need to find goals from other areas as well.” Villa lost Sherwood’s first game 2-1 at home to Stoke last weekend, their sixth successive defeat, leaving them in the bottom three on goal difference. Sherwood insisted, though, he needs time to improve Villa after their season of struggle under ex-boss Paul Lambert. He said: “I dwell on it because I’m always mulling over the game, could we have done anything differently? “I beat myself up about it. If I put it into perspective, after a couple of days in training, I haven’t come in here with a magic wand. “No one expected that. It’s going to be difficult, it’s going to be a work in progress and the more time I have on the training field with the guys the more confidence I have we can turn this position around.” last_img read more

Barbados Pride reaches 48-2 on rain hit day 2

first_imgTHE Guyana Jaguars dealt two early blows with the new ball, to leave Barbados Pride 48-2, last evening on the second day of the Day/Night fourth-round Regional Four-Day Championship fixture, at the Guyana National Stadium.With the first 90 minutes of play disrupted by rain, and the remaining sessions washed out, the visitors are 263 runs behind the Guyana Jaguars first innings total of 311.When play eventually commenced at 16:30hrs, Kraigg Brathwaite stroked the first ball of the day firmly through the cover off the front foot off Keon Joseph (1-13),and then fellow opener Anthony Alleyne punched Raymond Reifer (1-20) through extra cover on the back foot for consecutive boundaries in the next over.However, the pacers gave the hosts the early breakthroughs to put the Barbadians on the backfoot at 17-2 inside the five six overs of the day’s play.Reifer removed the left-handed, Alleyne (8) in the fourth over with a trademark left-arm pacer’s line. It was a wide ball outside off-stump, and Alleyne’s eyes lit up and he slashed it hard with an angled bat to Rajendra Chandrika at gully.Brathwaite (6) was sent back by Joseph in the fifth over with a peach of a delivery. The well-directed bouncer saw the West Indies Test vice-captain go for a hook shot which he gloved and was taken by wicket-keeper Anthony Bramble.Shai Hope and Shamarh Brooks joined forces and showed some early signs of discomfort, but they then settled down and played sensibly to steady the innings, with Hope playing a couple of sumptuous shots for fours.The extent of their assurance took the visitors to dinner at 18:00hrs, with Hope unbeaten on 20, while Brooks had ten.However, no play was possible thereafter, and play was called off at 21:20hrs.SCOREBOARDBARBADOS PRIDE 1st innings (Guy Jaguars 1st innings 311)K Brathwaite c wk Bramble b Joseph 6A Alleyne c Chandrika b Reifer 8S Hope not out 20S Brooks not out 10Extras: (nb-4) 4Total: (for two wickets; 19 overs) 48Fall of Wickets: 1-15, 2-17,Bowlings: K Joseph 5-1-13-1, R Reifer 5-0-20-1, Barnwell 5-1-13-0, Permaul 4-3-2-0last_img read more
