Pig-to-human influenza case reported. health officials urge caution during fair season

By on September 24, 2020

first_imgIndianapolis, in. — The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and Indiana Board of Animal Health (BOAH) are urging Hoosiers to take steps to prevent illness while visiting events where pigs are exhibited following confirmation of a case of influenza in a resident with exposure to pigs. This is the first human case of H3N2 variant influenza reported in Indiana since 2013 and the first human case in the U.S. this year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which confirmed the test results Friday.H3N2 variant influenza is most commonly associated with contact with pigs. The Indiana resident became ill after being exposed to pigs during a county fair that has since ended. The resident is recovering. The affected county health department has been notified and is collaborating with the ISDH and BOAH on the investigation. No additional details about the patient or the fair will be released at this time in order to maintain the patient’s privacy.Influenza viruses can be directly transmitted from pigs to people and from people to pigs. Human infections are most likely to occur when people are in close proximity to infected pigs, such as in barns and livestock exhibits at fairs. Influenza viruses are not transmitted by eating pork and pork products. According to the CDC, more than 400 cases of H3N2 variant influenza have been identified in people nationwide since 2011. More than one-third of those cases have occurred in Indiana.“Seeing animals is one of the highlights of going to the fair, but it’s important to remember that animals can carry diseases that can make people sick,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, MD, FACOG. “Washing your hands after attending animal exhibits and practicing good food hygiene can help prevent illness and ensure that the fair and other events remain a healthy and fun experience.”Hoosiers can protect themselves by taking the following steps:Avoid eating, drinking, using tobacco or putting anything else in your mouth while in pig barns and show arenas.Avoid taking toys, pacifiers, cups, bottles, strollers or similar items into pig barns and show arenas.Wash hands often with soap and running water before and after attending pig exhibits. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.Stay home if you are sick with flu-like illness.People at high risk for serious complications from the flu should avoid pigs and should not enter swine barns. These populations include children younger than 5, pregnant women, people age 65 and older and people with long-term health conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease, as well as those with weakened immune systems.Fair exhibitors are encouraged to watch pigs for signs of illness, such as loss of appetite, lethargy, fever, cough or runny nose. Exhibitors should minimize the number of people who have contact with ill swine and notify the fair veterinarian or manager that their animal might be ill. People who must come in contact with pigs that are exhibiting signs of illness should wash their hands frequently with soap and water and wear protective clothing, including gloves and masks that cover the mouth and nose. Additional guidance for exhibitors can be found on the CDC website athttps://www.cdc.gov/flu/pdf/swineflu/fair_exhibitor_factsheet.pdf.Anyone with recent exposure to pigs who experiences symptoms that include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, fatigue, headaches and sometimes vomiting or diarrhea should contact a healthcare provider promptly. Influenza antiviral drugs can treat H3N2v as well as seasonal flu illness in people.last_img read more

Roma feat among Champions League’s craziest comebacks

By on January 6, 2020

first_imgRoma’s achievement is just the latest in a long list of comebacks in the competition:– The most recent: Roma-Barcelona (1-4, 3-0)Brazilian forward Neymar inspired Barcelona’s remarkable Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in March 2017 © AFP/File / PAU BARRENARetired Roma great Francesco Totti conceded “it could have gone better” when he personally pulled Barcelona out of the hat to meet Roma at the draw for the last 16. “We’ll be up against one of the biggest sides in Europe,” said Totti, now a sporting director at the club he served for over two decades before retiring at the end of last season.Totti’s fears seemed justified when Barcelona beat the Italians 4-1 at the Camp Nou in the first leg. But Roma’s away goal left a hint of hope, and Roma — led by Bosnian centre-forward Edin Dzeko — stunned a static Barca side with three goals on Tuesday to send the Stadio Olimpico, and indeed the Italian capital, into a frenzy.– The most unlikely: Barcelona-PSG (0-4, 6-1)“Unthinkable,” headlined L’Equipe after Paris Saint Germain’s stunning second-leg loss to Barcelona on March 7, 2017.With their heads held high after an impressive 4-0 win over Barca in Paris, Unai Emery’s stylish Parisians lost their swagger during a 6-1 mauling by Barca at the Camp Nou. They were guilty of complacency and lacking focus, notably late on when they conceded three times in the final seven minutes as Neymar took control for Barcelona.Those errors dumped PSG out of the competition, and left the French giants with the unenviable record of becoming the first and only club to exit the competition after winning the first leg by a four-goal margin.– Chelsea crushed: Barcelona-Chelsea (1-3, 5-1 a.e.t), in 2000Barcelona’s penchant for changing their own Champions League fortunes at the last minute is nothing new. After a humbling 3-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, a Barca team led by Brazilian great Rivaldo and Portuguese star Luis Figo extinguished the Blues’ hopes at the Camp Nou in the return leg.Boosted by Tor Andre Flo’s precious away goal for Chelsea on the hour, the visiting Chelsea fans were given plenty of reason to dream. But an 83rd minute goal by Dani Garcia pushed the match into extra-time, and Chelsea — who saw Celestine Babayaro sent off in the 98th minute — collapsed when Rivaldo, from the spot, then Patrick Kluivert, scored Barca’s fourth and fifth goals.– The most unexpected: Monaco-Real Madrid (2-4, 3-1), in 2004Looking at a team sheet featuring names like Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Raul and Roberto Carlos, Monaco fans would have been forgiven for writing off the French side’s Champions League hopes in 2004.Monaco lost the first leg of the quarter-final 4-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu. But the Principality side, led by fledgling coach Didier Deschamps, produced one of the shocks of the competition with a 3-1 defeat of the Galacticos that, thanks to their two away goals, fired them into the semi-finals, and then a final which they lost to Jose Mourinho’s FC Porto.– Ronaldo’s night: Real Madrid-Wolfsburg (0-2, 3-0), in 2016Tradition dictates that the top players always shine in the most critical moments. And Cristiano Ronaldo is no exception.Amid an otherwise underwhelming season under coach Rafael Benitez, the Spanish giants looked on their way to an early exit after a 2-0 loss to Wolfsburg in the quarter-final first leg.Ronaldo was just one of several of Benitez’s stars to face heavy criticism. A week later, ‘CR7’ silenced his detractors with a well-taken hat-trick in a 3-0 away win that sent Real on their way to the first of two consecutive triumphs.– The quickest: Liverpool-AC Milan (3-3, 3-2 on penalties), in 2005What is still billed as the craziest comeback in the history of the Champions League occurred over the space of 90 minutes, plus extra time and penalties, in 2005.Liverpool were facing a humiliating loss to AC Milan after the Italians struck three times in the opening half thanks to a first-minute effort from Paolo Maldini and a Hernan Crespo double.It is said Liverpool’s players could hear AC Milan celebrating what they thought was an impending victory at half-time. In a legendary second half, a much-changed Reds’ side hit back.Captain Steven Gerrard sparked the revolt when he scored on 54 minutes. When Vladimir Smicer then Xabi Alonso brought the scores level, AC Milan were stunned. After a scoreless period of extra-time, Liverpool prevailed 3-2 on penalties.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Greek defender Kostas Manolas scored the decisive goal that earned Roma one of the most unlikely Champions League comebacks in history © AFP / LLUIS GENEPARIS, France, Apr 11 – “The fall of Rome” was how one Catalan daily described Barcelona’s shock 3-0 defeat to Serie A side Roma on Tuesday which ended the Spanish league giants’ bid for a place in the semi-finals.As Roma look forward to their first semi-final since 1984, Barcelona are licking their wounds having failed to reach the Champions League last four for the second consecutive season.last_img read more

Best Images of Saturn’s Rings Obtained

By on December 19, 2019

first_imgAs Cassini begins climbing into high orbits over Saturn, it’s starting to get amazing images looking down on the rings in unprecedented detail.When the Cassini spacecraft first arrived at Saturn on June 30 and July 1, 2004, its main engine fired up on a critical burn to slow it into orbit. As a byproduct, the cameras got the closest look of the dark side of the rings it would get for the next 13 years. Amazing as those photos were, they’re looking like VHS compared to 4K now. Years ago, mission planners designed a “Grand Finale” for the spacecraft that would loft it into high polar orbits, then plunge it into Saturn in September of 2017 (this year). A byproduct of that plan is the opportunity to take never-before-possible photos of Saturn’s rings from the sunlit as well as the dark side – at close range. Get ready: get set: look!This Cassini image features a density wave in Saturn’s A ring (at left) that lies around 134,500 km from Saturn. Density waves are accumulations of particles at certain distances from the planet. January 27, 2017(Source) The photos are black-and-white because the images would smear if 3-color filters were applied in sequence while the spacecraft is moving. The amount of detail visible, though, is spectacular, and of great interest to scientists. Passage of moons farther out create gravitational tugs that create waves and fine structure. The density wave at left can be seen damping out as the peaks get closer together; scientists identify Janus and Epimetheus (the co-orbital moons) as the culprits. Of special interest is the texture dubbed “straw” between the peaks, indicative of additional perturbations between the ring particles. The regularly spaced groovy “wakes” at right are believed to originate from Pan. Those damp out to the right till they bump into another density wave. Another image posted in the press release shows features caused by large moonlets embedded in the rings. The rings, of course, are not solid, but as James Clerk Maxwell determined, are composed of separately-orbiting particles.JPL released six images in its Jan 30, 2017 press release, which you can view at the saturn.jpl.nasa.gov website. We have to share one more here. It’s of the B-ring from the closest vantage point to date, just 51,000 kilometers:This image shows a region in Saturn’s outer B ring. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft viewed this area at a level of detail twice as high as it had ever been observed before. And from this view, it is clear that there are still finer details to uncover.(Note: The small, bright blemishes have not been cleaned up in the photo. They are caused by “cosmic rays and charged particle radiation near the planet.”) It’s clear that the structure of the largest and thickest ring has many more secrets to reveal; “Researchers have yet to determine what generated the rich structure seen in this view, but they hope detailed images like this will help them unravel the mystery.” Expect more eye-popping images between now and September.OK, due to popular demand, one more for an encore: here is a cleaned-up image of the outer edge of the B-ring. The dark Cassini Division is caused by a 2:1 resonance with the moon Mimas.This image shows a region in Saturn’s outer B ring. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft viewed this area at a level of detail twice as high as it had ever been observed before.We hope you enjoy these historic images. Saturn’s rings are not only beautiful, they are scientifically important. Almost no ringmaster (what I call the ring experts) believes they are as old as Saturn. The same is true of the rings of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune: they cannot be billions of years old. There are too many physical forces tugging at them, battering them, and scattering them to be even a tenth or a hundredth the assumed age of the solar system (A.S.S.). The ringmasters will have their hands full trying to explain all this fine structure and how it can endure for so long.Let’s take a look at how much better the new images are. Here’s one from the 2004 flyover for comparison:They were much grainier and darker then, as you can see, but still amazing. I was there with just a few others in the Space Flight Operations Facility when these first close-up images came in late at night on the day after the flyby. I remember the gasps of the scientists and their struggle to come up with on-the-spot explanations on TV.First close views of Saturn’s rings, JPL, July 1, 2004. Photo by David CoppedgeThose were great days, being among the first to glimpse such wonders never dreamt of by Galileo, Cassini, Huygens, Maxwell and others who had observed the rings from afar when they looked “simple” (just A, B, C, and a dark division). I relished my 14 years at JPL. Though things turned out badly for me at the end because of my witness, I still enjoy being a silent member of the Cassini team from home.   —DFC(Visited 73 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

I will definitely be back next year for the World Cup, and will bring back as many friends as I can,” said Severinac before he was swallowed up by the moving crowd.Once-in-a-lifetime experienceBenito Lenon, who travelled from Madrid, Spain, to watch La Furia Roja play in Fifa’s “Festival of Continental Champions”, said South Africa “seems like such a good country.“I have been here for six days now watching football, and I really love the friendly people here,” Lenon said. “I must tell you, South Africans are the most friendly and hospitable people I have met.”Although Spain were playing Iraq in Bloemfontein on the same day, Lenon chose to experience a Bafana Bafana match in Rustenburg instead, having heard from friends that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to celebrate football in South Africa.He certainly wasn’t disappointed.As tens of thousands of spectators made their way to the Royal Bafokeng Stadium before the game, the city of Rustenburg, in South Africa’s North West province, came alive with the sound of a distinctively African Fifa Confederations Cup.The drone of vuvuzelas competed with hooting and cheering as fans made their way toward the stadium through the city, hoping for – and getting – a night of celebration as South Africa beat New Zealand 2-0.Hours before the match had even started, crowds were gathering outside the stadium as music and dancers entertained the excited crowd.“I am here to support my country, and the vibe around the city is great,” said Lebogang Molefe, adding that the Confederations Cup was all about showing the world what South Africa is all about.“We are a nation that likes to sing, and we are a happy nation,” Molefe said. “I hope our visitors see this now and on television, and I hope they come back for the 2010 World Cup.”Source: 2010 Fifa World Cup South Africa Organising CommitteeRelated storiesViva the vuvuzela orchestra!Big teams qualify for World CupUseful linksMakarapa 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup South Africa 2010last_img read more

Tumblr’s Perverse Lesson: To Get Rich, Don’t Make Money

By on December 15, 2019

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Matt Asay Tags:#acquihire#acquisition#M&A#Tumblr center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… $1.1 billion. That’s how much your company is worth if it’s long on users and short on paying customers. Just ask Tumblr. Or Instagram. Each yanked down billion-dollar acquisitions despite making virtually no revenue. Is this a big deal?Acquihires And Billion-Dollar PayoutsSome seem to think so. At least, for acquihires, the kissing cousin to the revenue-free-massive acquisition. For example, Pando Daily‘s Sarah Lacy slams the acquihire, arguing thatLazy profit-seekers love these periods in the Valley. Why not? They can make money without having to actually build a company. It’s like a get-out-of-actual-entrepreneurship-free card.Venture capitalist Mark Suster goes one step further, holding that acquihires actually have a corrosive effect on the tech industry:You have been at Google, Salesforce.com, Yahoo! for years. You have worked faithfully. Evenings. Weekends. Year in, year out. You have shipped to hard deadlines. You’ve done the death-march projects. In the trenches. You got the t-shirt. And maybe got called out for valor at a big company gathering. They gave you an extra 2 days of vacation for your hard work.And that [jerk] sitting in the desk next to you who joined only last week now has $1 million because he built some fancy newsreader that got a lot of press but is going to be shut down anyways.What kind of message does that send to the party faithful who slave away loyally to hit targets for BigCo? …It says if you want to make “real” money  – quit.Fair enough. I’ve been involved in three such acquihires, and I see their point. Acquihires send a signal that failure is OK and, indeed, profitable.But the same holds true for the billion-dollar exits on chimerical revenues. They represent entrepreneurs cashing in on popularity contests without actually having done the hard work of monetizing that popularity. That is, they represent entrepreneurs making big-money success on little-revenue failure. The Downside To Making MoneyAnd why shouldn’t they? It turns out that it’s very difficult to remain popular while charging for one’s service. LinkedIn has done it by charging recruiters. Google has done it by aligning relevant ads next to search results. But monetizing people’s inane pictures of their meals? Instagram didn’t even bother.Pinterest is starting to roll out paid services. Foursquare, too, has been straining to make more money lately. Ironically, these noble efforts to actually sustain the companies on real revenue may make them far less valuable.For one thing, monetization efforts can fail. Just look at Groupon’s gyrations as it has sought to turn a massive sales force into a profit-generating machine. It hasn’t been pretty, and it can turn off users who don’t want to be sold.But more pertinently, the second a business starts to make significant revenue, it will start to be valued on real-world metrics like “profit” and “operating margin” and “sales,” not breathless potential based on “users” and “page views” and “social engagement.” It turns out that the multiples on the former are far lower than they are on the latter.The Entrepreneur’s DilemmaWhat to do? Entrepreneurs can’t really set out to build a revenue-free company that VCs will sustain indefinitely. So most are probably right to initially focus on adoption. Assuming they can get traction, it pays to continue to focus on adoption, because it’s harder to turn free-riding users into paying customers (or find businesses to pay for access to those users). So long as the venture money is flowing, why would an entrepreneur ever choose to fixate on the dismal science of making money? For me, I think if you’re not making profitable money then your future – and that of your customers’ – is always up for grabs. Whatever promises the purchasing company makes, they are the buyer, and you are the seller. As Dave Winer points out, this inevitably means they’re in control. Not you.  Maybe that doesn’t matter. But it does mean we may be building disposable companies with little lasting impact. That doesn’t seem like a good thing.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.  8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

DJI Drones Can Now Fly on Their Own and More Major Updates

By on December 12, 2019

first_imgFollow MeThis may be the most anticipated update — though it’s only available for the Phantom 3 series. Set the aircraft to follow you, and it will automatically fly and keep you in the cameras view. WaypointsWaypoints allow users to set multiple GPS points, called Waypoints, that the aircraft will automatically fly to. This allows pilots to set a flight path so they can focus on camera control. The Phantom 3 or Inspire 1 will fly along the same path repeatedly, travel at a set speed, and save the pattern for future use. Home LockPilots can set flight controls to relate to their location at all times. With Home Lock you can flick a switch and the control stick will move forwards, backwards, left, and right all in relation to the set home point. Course LockAn easy navigation option, Course Lock allows the pilot to set the controls to correspond with the aircraft’s current path. This lets you fly in a set direction while moving alongside objects. Point of InterestPilots wanting to circle a specific building or location can lock onto their target with Point of Interest. The drone will continuously circle until the user captures their shot. Owners of the DJI Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 now have their own personal assistant. DJI has announced Intelligent Flight Modes, a series of custom flight paths.Following a new line of Phantom quadcopters and an much improved app, DJI has now introduced Waypoints, Point of Interest, Follow Me, Home Lock, and Course Lock. DJI GO AppImage via DJIIn August, DJI released the updated DJI GO app. The app (now available for iOS and Android) introduced many new features and replaced the previous DJI Pilot app. DJI GO created low-resolution files that would save to the pilot’s phone or tablet, allowing instant playback. It also allowed you to quickly post photos and videos online. The app featured enhanced editing tools and also integrates the DJI forum to allow users to easily share tips and find information. DJI has now announced updates to the app (iOS V2.2.0 and Android V2.1.0) but it’s the firmware updates making all the headlines. Phantom 3 Advanced owners will receive an upgrade that supports 2.7K video recording.Intelligent Flight ModesImage via DJIDJI has just introduced Intelligent Flight Modes, a series of flight paths that can easily be set by pilots. These features are available for the Phantom 3 series and Inspire 1.These aren’t revolutionary updates, as other drones like the 3DR Solo Smart Drone already featured some of these abilities. It is a much needed update to DJI’s line of aerial cameras. Matt Carlson shared his initial review with us. Here you can see the Intelligent Flight Mode in action with Carlson’s DJI Phantom 3 Professional.Over 700 FAA Section 333 Exeptions Issued for DJI Phantom PilotsImage via DJIIn other DJI news, the company has announced that 742 total exemptions have been issued to companies using DJI products. In January of 2015, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued its first Section 333 exemption for a DJI Phantom.This made the Phantom eligible for commercial use within the United States – with a Section 333 exemption. A Section 333 exemption and a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) is needed for commercial drone use within the U.S. until a new set of regulations is created.Excited about these updates? Do you use drones in your productions? Are you filing for a Section 333 exemption? Let us know in the comments below.last_img read more
