Cancer school

By on January 17, 2021

first_imgBy April SorrowUniversity of GeorgiaEach year, 410 new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed in Georgia, and 120 women die from it. Almost 5,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Georgia, and 1,014 die from it every year. Specialists with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension want women to know the benefits of cancer screenings. Early detection can make all the difference. “We help women understand the regular screening tends to help detect any changes in the breast or cervix before they get serious,” said Connie Crawley, a UGA Extension health and nutrition specialist. “We also teach that lifestyle can reduce risk. This includes eating more fruits and vegetables, controlling calories to achieve a healthy weight, not drinking alcohol and being as physically active as possible.”Crawley and UGA Extension agents from across the state deliver the Cooking for a Life Time Cancer Prevention Cooking School. The classes are taught by a team with members from the BreasTest and More staff and the American Cancer Society. They are led by UGA Extension family and consumer sciences agents. The schools are taught in counties with the highest incidences and death rates associated with breast and cervical cancers. Twenty-three schools were offered in sixteen counties in 2006 and 2007. The ACS helped fund classes in 20 additional counties in 2008. “For many women, once they are no longer having children, they begin to skip regular Pap tests and breast cancer screenings,” said Crawley. “Also, many women do not realize that they can get their services through the BreasTest and More Program if they do not have insurance.”Through the school, 429 women have been referred to BreasTest and More. Eighty-three women received clinical breast exams, 81 got mammograms and 44 had Pap tests. Many of these women had rarely or never been screened for cancer. Two women were diagnosed with breast cancer. The school refers women to the Cancer Screening program established by the Georgia Department of Human Resources. The program offers Pap tests to low-income, uninsured women between the ages of 18 and 64 and mammograms to women between the ages of 40 and 64. UGA Extension along with other state extension services partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the National Cancer Institute and ACS to increase screening for breast and cervical cancers in women who rarely if ever get screened. These women are often poor and live in counties with high rates of cancer-related deaths. In 2006, 12 percent of Georgia women over the age of 18 did not get regular Pap tests and 21 percent over the age of 40 did not get mammograms. Nationally and in Georgia, the less money a woman makes annually, the less likely she is to get regular cancer screenings, according to the CDC. In 2006, 18 percent of Georgia women earning less than $15,000 a year did not get Pap tests, twice the percentage of those earning between $35,000 and $50,000 annually.For more information on healthy life choices, cancer classes or the cooking school, contact a local UGA Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1.last_img read more

Lou Holtz again compares college football’s COVID risk to Normandy: ‘They knew there were gonna be casualties’

By on August 13, 2020

first_imgCollege football and World War II have more similarities than you’d think. At least, according to Lou Holtz.The former college football coach took to the tube on Tuesday to voice his displeasure with college football conferences and their seeming desire to cancel or postpone the 2020 fall sports calendar. Speaking on Fox News’ “Bill Hemmer Show,” Holtz urged college students to play on, and compared the coronavirus pandemic currently wreaking havoc on the country to soldiers risking their lives during D-Day.MORE: Why the Big Ten canceled its 2020 football seasonLou Holtz tells Fox News that college football needs to play amid coronavirus pandemic this fall: “Let’s move on with our life! When they stormed Normandy, they knew there were going to be casualties — there were going to be risks.” pic.twitter.com/zZZ5qrFRFb— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) August 11, 2020Clemson, many months ago, had a rash of COVID-19 positives. They’ve had one in the last month. 1,000-to-one, Bill, the Pac-12 will go along with the Big Ten. They’re tied waist-to-waist, they have been ever since ’46 when they made the Rose Bowl agreement with the Big Ten. So I think it just showed no leadership.I think they should play, but then again, that’s what I said. I think they oughta say to the players, ‘You want to play, If you have a problem, if you have an asthma problem, if you’re a diabetic or something, then you have a legitimate reason you don’t wanna play, absolutely, don’t play. The rest of you wanna play, let’s go play.’ I think that we shut everything down for six months, I’m going crazy about being quarantined. I think other people are tired of it. Let’s move on with our life.When they stormed Normandy, they knew that there were gonna be casualties, there was gonna be risk. Two percent of the people that go to the emergency room go for COVID-19, it’s going down. Young people, Bill, they think it’s like cancer, they think they’re gonna die.There’s a lot to unpack here, but comparing a pandemic (one whose long-term effects we still don’t truly understand yet) to storming the beaches at Normandy in WWII seems … misguided, at best. Also, generally speaking, the coronavirus is avoidable, while walking into the bullet in the front lines during a World War really wasn’t. With long-term effects surrounding the heart and lungs popping up in athletes across the U.S., it seems that playing college football, at least for now, isn’t the best idea. Moving on with life isn’t much of an option either, when most states are actively trying to drop the coronavirus curb to keep it from spreading. Cases were on the rise over the summer, with numbers only dropping in recent weeks.Still, this is not the first time Holtz has drawn the absurd parallel; he spewed similar lines on another Fox News program earlier this year.But Holtz was right about one thing at least: the Pac-12’s decision to postpone the college football season was tied to the Big Ten — the conference effectively postponed their schedule on Tuesday afternoon.last_img read more

KIJHL teams look for diamonds in the rough as B.C Hockey roster deadline nears

By on August 3, 2020

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsDon’t expect a lot of movement in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League as teams prepare to submit final rosters January 15 to B.C. Hockey.At least that’s what Nelson Leaf coach Frank Maida thinks will happen as junior teams across the country ready for the final part of the season.“We’ve been looking but there isn’t a lot of movement out there,” Maida said prior to a three-point weekend in KIJHL play.The Leafs opened the weekend losing 5-4 to Princeton before finishing on a much happier note after edging Grand Forks 5-2 Saturday — both games at the NDCC Arena.Maida has been desperately rustling the bushes throughout junior hockey for a player or two to fill out the roster of the Green and White before the final month stretch drive.However, Maida has only received offers of fewer players and not the home-run hitters the Leafs need to challenge both Beaver Valley and Castlegar for the Murdoch Division title.“I don’t think there’s going to be many players from the B.C. Hockey League because those teams already have less players than in past years,” Maida explained. “The only way players might become available is if Western Hockey League teams release players and then there may be a trickle down.”The Leafs currently have 21 players on the roster after defenceman Julian Davis left the team prior to the weekend.Leafs get back to winning ways, edge Grand Forks BruinsFive different players scored as the Nelson Leafs defeated the Grand Forks Border Bruins 5-2 Saturday in KIJHL Murdoch Division action at the NDCC Arena.The win was the first for Nelson in three games.Dallon Stoddart, first star Eric Spring, defenceman J.J. Beitel, Cameron Dobransky and Colton Malmsten scored for Nelson, which held period leads of 2-0 and 3-1.Mitchell Nishimura and Austin Lee replied for Grand Forks.However, the big story of this game was the play of Grand Forks goalie Dylan Quinn, who face 45 shots in the game.Hawks increase Murdoch lead to six pointsThe Beaver Valley Nitehawks, the top team in the entire KIJHL, stretched its lead in the Murdoch Division to six points over second-place Castlegar Rebels after posting a pair of wins.Zac Perehudoff stopped all 27 shots to backstop the Hawks to a 3-0 win over Princeton Posse Saturday.Christian Johnson scored twice and Chris Derochie added a single for the Hawks, which held a 36-27 shot advantage.Sunday, the Hawk players padded their individual scoring stats during an 11-2 pounding of Columbia Valley Rockies.Justin Ninimikin, rookie sensation Craig Martin, Dallas Calvin, Johnson and Max Flanagan each scored twice to lead the Hawks.Jacob Boyczuk also scored for Beaver Valley, 30-6-0-1.Mike Vlanich stopped 21 of 23 shots to grab the win in goal.Castlegar keeps pace with Hawks, pound Bruins twiceThe Castlegar Rebels kept pace with Beaver Valley by flexing its offensive muscles against lowly Grand Forks Border Bruins.The Rebels finished off the Bruins by blasting the Boundary team 16-2 Sunday in Castlegar.The win comes on the heels of a 10-0 shellacking Friday in Grand Forks.Anthony Delong and Chetwynd rookie Kody Fisher each had four points to lead the Rebels.Diego Bartlett and Delong each scored twice to pace Castlegar, 26-8-1-2 on the season.Castlegar hosts Creston Friday before traveling to Fruitvale Saturday to face the Hawks in a Murdoch showdown.The Rebels have defeated the Hawks in the last two meetings.Season continues to go south for Border BruinsThe season continues to go from bad to worse for the Grand Forks Border Bruins.The 1-36 Bruins, winless since November, have allowed a league high 340 goals — that’s a 9.19 per game average — as well has have only scored 74 times, also a league [email protected]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

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast October 31, 2018

By on December 17, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are entering the first wet stage of our forecast today. Rains move across the state today through tomorrow and into the first part of Friday. The rains today may be heavier in the north and NW, but from tonight through early Friday, the heaviest precipitation will be in central and southern Ohio. It may take a little while for central and southern areas to see action today as the front marches east. However, rain is coming…be ready. Combined, we can see half to 2″ rainfall totals for this event with nearly 100% coverage. However, we have a concern that some areas near the Ohio river and in SW Ohio could blow well past that top end of the range, and see 3 inches or more. That all depends on where things set up overnight tonight through early Friday, and what kind of thunderstorm potential there is.Even after the bigger rains are done early Friday, we have plenty of clouds around. Precipitation is not guaranteed in all areas, but we think most of the clouds will come from wrap around on the backside of this strong storm complex. Because of that, we can’t completely rule out a scattered showers, but rain totals where it happens will be limited to an additional few hundredths to a quarter of an inch. Potential coverage will be 40% or less.The weekend now looks to turn out dry. We should be rain free for Saturday and Sunday, although we will have clouds still trying to move through. A significant warm up is likely for the weekend too, with temps above normal. Monday clouds start to thicken up again, and we could see a few scattered showers. These are not well organized and will have minor coverage, but we can’t rule them out at the moment. Some models even still try to bring our next rain event in on Monday already. However, our forecast holds off just a bit.Moderate to heavy rains are back for Monday overnight through Tuesday. The front looks significant, especially with the warm surge will experience in front of it over this weekend. That will promote rains of half to 1.5” over 100% of the state. After the rains of the next few days, that is definitely not needed, and will boost our 1 week rain totals significantly. Most of the state could see at least 1-3 inches, and SW Ohio is particularly at risk. The map at right shows total precipitation from today through next Tuesday night, and while we think the heaviest totals may be a bit overzealous, they are not out of the realm of possibility. A much cooler push of air follows that front in on the backside.Dry for the remainder of the week next week, Wednesday through Friday.The extended period still features good rains of .25”-1” over 70% of the state for the 10th and 11th, and then scattered showers up to .25” for the 14th. Temps will pull back to normal and below normal levels for that 11-16 day window.last_img read more
