Vietnam reports another avian flu case

first_imgApr 4, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – A 27-year-old woman in central Vietnam has tested positive for H5N1 avian influenza, according to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report published today.The woman tested positive yesterday and is hospitalized in stable condition, Nguyen Van Nuoi, a physician at the main hospital in Ha Tinh province, told AFP. She was admitted Mar 29 with a high fever, which has since abated, he said.Unofficially, Vietnam now has had 34 cases of avian flu, 15 of them fatal, in the series that began last December.Nuoi said the patient’s family had raised eight ducks, and she had eaten duck meat, the AFP report said. Test results on the ducks were being awaited.Also today, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Vietnam’s Ministry of Health has officially confirmed the family cluster of five avian flu cases in Haiphong that was first reported in the news media Mar 29. The earlier reports said initial tests were positive for avian flu and that further tests were pending.With the official confirmation, the WHO increased its overall count of human cases since late 2003 to 79; the death toll remained the same at 49. CIDRAP’s unofficial count, based on media and WHO reports, is 81 cases with 50 deaths.The WHO said the infected family includes a father, age 35, mother, 33, and three daughters, 13 years, 10 years, and 4 months. The statement did not list their condition, but a Vietnam News Service (VNS) report on Mar 30 said all five were in stable condition and recovering.Another patient, 5-year-old Hoang Trong Duong of central Vietnam’s Quang Binh province, was discharged from a hospital today, according to the newspaper Thanh Nien News. He had been hospitalized in Hue for 23 days, the story said.Meanwhile, Vietnam today launched a “a nationwide awareness campaign for better sanitation and hygiene” to both combat and monitor avian flu, according to a VNS report. “Concerned ministries and agencies need to monitor poultry business and transport in markets, and set up joint teams to spray disinfectant on poultry this month,” the story said.In the United States, President Bush issued an order Apr 1 allowing authorities to detain or isolate anyone suspected of having avian flu when arriving in the country on an international flight, according to an Apr 1 Reuters report.The order added pandemic influenza to the list of diseases for which quarantine is authorized, the story said. Pandemic flu was defined as a new or re-emergent strain to which the population has little or no immunity.According to the story, White House spokesman Trent Duffy said there was no evidence of any immediate risk of avian flu to the public, but the step was a pragmatic one to give health officials authority to protect the public.See also:Apr 4 WHO updatehttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_04_04/en/CIDRAP avian flu case-count tableshttp://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/avianflu/case-count/avflucount.htmllast_img read more

History of Washington’s Death Penalty discussed at Saint Martin’s University Harvie…

first_imgSubmitted by Saint Martin’s UniversityNick Brown, general counsel to Gov. Jay Inslee, will discuss the history of the death penalty in Washington State and the factors leading Inslee to suspend the use of capital punishment at the next installment of the Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture Series on Friday, November 7. “Washington State’s Moratorium on the Death Penalty,” which is free and open to the public, will begin at 4 p.m. at Saint Martin’s University in Harned Hall, Room 110, on the Lacey campus, 5000 Abbey Way SE.Inslee imposed the moratorium in February, an action that caught many people by surprise, but he arrived at the decision following a careful review and reflection of its application in our state. Since that time, there has been heightened, national attention on the death penalty and its fairness and cost.Brown is a Washington native, having grown up in Steilacoom. He attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, on an Army ROTC scholarship and received a B.A. in political science. He then attended law school at Harvard University.Following his graduation in 2002, he entered the Army Jag Corps, where he went through Airborne School and served as a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. He spent a year serving in Baghdad, Iraq, with the 3rd Infantry Division and left the service in 2007.Before joining the governor’s office in 2013, Brown spent six years in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle, where he prosecuted violent crime, white collar, narcotics, and firearms cases. He spent the last two years as the office’s gang coordinator, working with federal and local task forces to prosecute gang crimes throughout Western Washington.In his current role, Brown is the principal legal advisor to the governor, advising the governor and his staff on an array of legal matters. His primary responsibilities include: reviewing litigation matters; managing the governor’s judicial appointment process; providing policy guidance; advising the governor on clemency and parole decisions; reviewing legislation and serving as the lead ethics advisor.The Robert A. Harvie Social Justice Lecture Series, now in its ninth year, was created by Saint Martin’s University Professor of Criminal Justice Robert Hauhart, Ph.D., J.D., chair of the University’s Department of Society and Social Justice, to raise awareness of social justice issues within the community. The series honors the work of Robert A. Harvie, J.D., former professor and chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at Saint Martin’s.For more information, contact Robert Hauhart at 360-438-4525 or [email protected] Facebook0Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Nelson Killjoys romp to WKRD 2013 crown

first_img“(Our) focus this season has been our teamwork . . . rather than just building on our individual skills, we wanted to practice hard to that our talents and strengths on the track complimented each others,” said team spokesperson Nicole C.”We have an incredibly deep bench and this gives us an edge competitively, so we wanted to develop that edge.”The Killjoys are a shadow of the team that entered the league in 2010.In the past six months the team received an influx of new players that help power the team over the top.”This is an amazing testament to blood, sweat, and tears we leave on the track week in and week out, especially for those of us that have been working towards this for three years,” Nicole C explained.The other teams in the league include Rossland/Trail Roller Girls, Dam City Rollers of Castlegar and Slocan Valley Vendettas. After getting beat up a lot during the expansion season the Nelson Killjoys went from rags to riches en route to clinching the 2013 West Kootenay Roller Derby Championship with a convincing 244-130 victory over Salmo’s Babe of Brutality at the Rossland Arena.Nelson built up a 130-70 halftime advantage before coasting to the title in the second half.last_img read more

Minister to meet with group to examine future of Parent Stop

first_imgChildren’s Minister Catherine Catherine Zappone has agreed to meet with members of Parent Stop.Deputy Pat the Cope Galagher raised the issue of the imminent closure of the organisation in Letterkenny, in the Dail last night.Unless additional funding can be sourced from the Government, Tusla, Department of Justice and the Department of Health, the centre will close. The Parent Stop organisation has been in operation since 2005 and provides a universal parent support service dealing with all kinds of issues that impact on the lives of families.It provides free and confidential one-to-one, telephone and group support to parents who need some help with parenting challenges.Deputy Gallagher said “I impressed upon the Minister the importance of the role and services being provided by Parent Stop, in their advocacy and support network for families and young people in Co Donegal, whilst the Minister acknowledged the great work of Parent Stop, she completely failed to commit the necessary funding for the organisation added Pat the Cope.“Unless the Government commits to a new funding model the Parent Stop organization will cease operating at the end of December, and the county will lose a much-needed service, and I might add the expertise they have garnered since their establishment in 2005. It is essential that every effort is made to save the services of Parent Stop.” In 2018 – 602 families benefitted directly from the services of Parent Stop, numerous families were supported by this organization, the alternative would have been long protracted court cases or issues left unresolved.Deputy Gallagher added “Whilst I am disappointed that the Minister did not commit to fully supporting the project, she did accept my invitation to meet with the group and to see first hand the great work they carry out in Co Donegal.“I will now arrange a delegation to meet with Minister Catherine Zappone, as a last ditched attempt to secure the necessary funding, otherwise these services will be lost for all time and many hundreds of families will be left disadvantaged as a result stated Pat the Cope.“It is shocking that for as little as €100,000 this Government are willing to let this service close for all time and to further deprive the people of Donegal of much needed services such as provided by Parent Stop.”Minister to meet with group to examine future of Parent Stop was last modified: October 24th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Catherine ZapponeletterkennyParent Stoplast_img read more

Help clean South Africa ‘to honour Madiba’

first_img10 July 2014 The government has called on all South Africans to honour former president Nelson Mandela by actively participating in the Clean South Africa campaign this Mandela Month. The campaign was first mooted by President Jacob Zuma during his State of the Nation Address last month, when he called on South Africans to begin planning for a major clean-up of cities, towns, townships, villages and schools. Speaking to reporters in Pretoria on Thursday following the Cabinet’s latest fortnightly meeting, Communications Minister Faith Muthambi said a Clean South Africa award would be presented to the country’s top three municipalities for Mandela Month. “We all have a responsibility to honour [Mandela’s] life by cleaning, improving and beautifying our communities,” Muthambi said. Celebrated across the globe in honour of the late statesman’s birthday on 18 July, the day gives everyone the opportunity to emulate Mandela’s role as public servant. “Mandela Day is not only about doing good, it is about service,” Nelson Mandela Foundation CEO Sello Hatang said at the launch of this year’s event in April. “It is an opportunity to build upon Mr Mandela’s lifelong belief that we must live to serve every day, in whatever we do.” Mandela Day, Hatang said, creates an opportunity for society’s “haves” and “have nots” to work together to confront social ills within their communities and to build a better world. This year’s Mandela Day will be particularly symbolic in that it offers South Africans, and the world, an occasion to honour the ethos of the late Mr Mandela in the year that marks South Africa’s 20th year of democracy. The idea of Mandela Day was inspired by Mandela at his 90th birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park in 2008, when he said: “It is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is in your hands now.” The United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009, recognising Mandela’s “values and his dedication to the service of humanity” and acknowledging his contribution “to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world”. The Mandela Day campaign asks that individuals, groups and corporates pledge 67 minutes of their time on 18 July, and every day thereafter, to give back. This can be by supporting a charity or serving the community. No matter how small the action, the aim is to change the world for the better – just as Mandela did.

An Autobiography in Books

first_imgMy mom taught me to read when I was four years old. I only know this because she at some point told me that is when I learned to read. I fell in love with reading in the 6th grade when Ms. Paolini required her English class to read Jonathon Livingston Seagull. That is the first book I remember having read, and from there, I never stopped reading.In 7th grade, I read The Hobbit. It took me the entirety of 7th grade to read it, and I eventually started to skip the parts where dwarves and elves sang songs. In 8th grade, I read The Lord of the Rings and every Asimov magazine I could get my hands on. From there, it was Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan, with an occasional book about Arthur Conan Doyle’s master of deductive reasoning, Sherlock Holmes.My freshman year of high school, my Dad gave me two books. The first book was titled The Fox is Crazy, Too: The True Story of Garrett Trapnell, Adventurer, Skyjacker, Bank Robber, Con Man, Lover. I don’t remember anything about the book, other than I enjoyed it well enough to remember the title. The second book was Will: The Auto-biography of G. Gordon Liddy.Liddy’s book left a mark. As a child, Liddy was afraid of everything from rats to zeppelins to lightning storms. The first half of the book documents a childhood spent facing each fear until they were dispatched forever, as well as his path to the FBI. The second half is his telling of his involvement in the failed Watergate burglary and the 72 months he spent in prison, months that would have likely been spent with his family had he been willing to testify against members of the Nixon White House. I was moved by the inviolable values by which Liddy lived. His intestinal fortitude was a model that armored me against some events of the following years.In 1986, I read a book by a young upstart titled, Unlimited Power. A few years later I saw the author, Anthony Robbins in a very large, mostly empty room, teaching influence to business people. At the time, he was still wearing expensive suits and show-ing the outward symbols of success, and still spoke of NLP.Two years later, I would read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, a book that instantaneously changed how I viewed everything I did, from work to fronting a rock-n-roll band. I read the book every couple of years, always finding something new and always exposing some area where I still had room for improvement, mostly around being proactive and investing in relationships.While living in Los Angeles, I read a lot of Stephen King and Clive Barker. One day, I didn’t feel well. I had been sick the night before, and I thought I might have had food poising. I was living alone, it was a Saturday, and I had nothing to do. I picked up Billy Bathgate by E. L. Doctorow as soon as I opened my eyelids, and I finished it around time for dinner. I never left my bed and finished the book in one sitting.A few weeks later, I would have a grand Mal seizure, and a few weeks after that, I would have two brain surgeries, one resulting in losing a significant piece of my brain. After these surgeries, I decided to do something with what remained of my brain by going to college.I majored in Political Science and read every book and article by Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. I read dozens of books on politics, including everything I could find about the founding of America, Federalist and Antifederalist alike. I also read economics, mostly Austrians, like Mises’ Human Action and Hayek’s Constitution of Liberty.I did not receive my dual major degree in English Literature, but I did take all the required courses, requiring me to read about half of Shakespeare’s plays and all of his sonnets, along with Swift, Cervantes, Dante, Milton, and Dostoevsky. I also read modern American literature, where I fell in love the works of Flannery O’Connor, who was more frightening that Stephen King, her work exposing the evil of which human be-ing are capable without any supernatural forces.A few years after that, I stumbled into Tom Peters work, and devoured every one of his books, starting with In Search of Excellence. I also read every sales book I cool get my hands on, starting with Mack Hanan’s Consultative Selling, Og Mandino’s Greatest Salesman in the World, Zig Ziglar’s Secrets of Closing the Sale, and Neil Rackham’s SPIN Selling, Major Account Sales Strategy, and Rethinking the Sales Force.Later, I bumped into Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, As a Man Thinketh by James Allen, and Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankel. When you take in good things, good things tend to come out.I spent a lot of time in bookstores, and still to do this day. I always look that the new nonfiction section, reading the flaps and flipping over the book to read blurbs. This is how I found Howard Bloom’s The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Force of History, the book that provided me with my initial introduction into memes and evolutionary psychology. I followed that thread to Robert Wright’s The Moral Animal: Why We Are, the Way We Are: The New Science of Evolutionary Psychology.Of all the books I have read, read again, and gifted, none comes close to What To Do When It’s Your Turn (and it’s always your turn) by Seth Godin. I believe it has more power than any other in compelling you to do what you were put here to do.More recently, the books that capture my attention include the entire works of Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, Antifragile, and Skin in the Game), as well as the many books by Ken Wilber, the American Philosopher who is recognized for Integral Theory, including the books Sex, Ecology, and Spirituality, and his most recent work, The Religion of Tomorrow: A Vision for the Future of the Great Traditions-More Inclusive, More Comprehensive, More Complete.I just finished reading Packing My Library: An Elegy and Ten Digressions by Alberto Mangual, a brilliant book about books (and the impetus for this post). On my desk next to me now is American Audacity: In Defense of Literary Daring by William Giraldi. Essential Reading!

AFC Cup: Heavy defeat leaves Ceres needing miracle

first_imgSEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief Read Next Istiklol got a goal each at from Akhtam Nazarov and Romish Dhzalilov in the first half, before a second half brace from Manuchehr Dhzalilov ensured the Tajiks go into the second leg on Sept. 12 at Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City with a comfortable advantage. A 5-0 win at home will allow the Busmen to advance, but a 4-0 scorline will send the tie to extra time. But with the way the Tajik champions dominated the first leg, it seems the Busmen would need a miracle for that to happen.

Romish Dhzalilov doubled the lead at the stroke of halftime with a clinical strike that left Roland Muller with no chance. The Busmen hardly threatened in the first half as Istiklol controlled proceedings, pressing high and winning the ball early.

As the Filipinos chased the game, Istiklol continued to find gaps in the defense with Manuchehr Dzhalilov scoring the first of his two goals from long range in the 67th minute. There was time for the Istiklol target man to score a fourth two minutes from time as the Busmen once again failed to deal with a cross, allowing Vadiev Dilshod to set up Dzhalilov who slotted home from close range. The Busmen fly home on Wednesday morning, but this was a tough reality check as they paid dearly for a sub-par away performance.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more
