H1N1 BREAKING NEWS: Pregnant women, parents polled, Chinese officials discuss quarantine, WHO to probe antiviral use

first_imgPregnant women bear disproportionate share of flu deathsAbout 6% of pandemic H1N1 deaths in the United States have occurred in pregnant women, though they make up just 1% of the population, the Associated Press reported today. The numbers are based on 266 detailed death reports that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has received. Fifteen deaths occurred in pregnant women. The CDC’s vaccine advisory committee meets tomorrow and is expected to list pregnant women among the high-priority groups to receive the pandemic H1N1 vaccine.Poll shows parents likely to seek H1N1 flu shots for kidsAn Associated Press/GfK Roper poll suggests that about 63% of American parents are likely to allow their children to receive the pandemic H1N1 vaccine, but only 51% of adults would probably receive the immunization themselves. Only 43% said they were concerned that they or a family member might contract the new flu virus. The telephone poll, conducted in mid July and released yesterday, included 1,006 adults, of whom 296 were parents.[AP-GfK flu poll report]Chinese officials say their policy of quarantining foreigners is workingChinese authorities assert that their aggressive quarantine policy to prevent foreign visitors from spreading H1N1 flu has worked well, according to a New York Times report. Officials say China has had few cases and proudly note that no deaths have been reported. But the newspaper tells the story of an American woman who said her surgery for appendicitis was delayed because of the quarantine policy. More than 1,800 Americans have been quarantined in China since the start of the pandemic.[Jul 28 New York Times story]El Salvador extends school vacation to battle pandemicEl Salvador announced it will extend a scheduled school vacation to 2 weeks to fight the spread of the H1N1 flu, the Associated Press reported yesterday. School vacations that began yesterday and last from 2 days to a week, depending on the region, will be extended until Aug 10. The action will affect nearly 2 million students. The country has had 545 confirmed cases of H1N1 flu, including seven fatal ones, the story said.Canadian cities group says national pandemic plan is lackingThe head of the Federation of Canadian Cities has charged that Canada has no national plan for protecting critical frontline workers such as police, firefighters, and transit workers, the Toronto Globe and Mail reported. In an open letter sent yesterday to federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq, Basil Stewart said Canada’s pandemic plan does not say who will have priority access to vaccines and antivirals. A spokesman for Aglukkaq said ongoing epidemiologic studies will guide vaccine allocation.WHO to probe antiviral use patternsA World Health Organization (WHO) spokeswoman said today that the agency will host a technical teleconference soon to discuss antiviral use during the H1N1 pandemic and the risks of antiviral resistance, Agence France-Presse reported. Countries vary in their use of oseltamivir (Tamiflu). Some use it widely for prevention and treatment of mild cases, while others are reserving it for infections in high-risk groups and for severe cases. So far, five antiviral-resistant cases have been identified.last_img read more

Olive oil ‘helps prevent stroke’

first_imgHealthLifestyle Olive oil ‘helps prevent stroke’ by: – June 16, 2011 12 Views   no discussions Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Olive oil can help prevent strokes in people over 65, a study suggests.Researchers followed around 7,000 people aged 65 and over living in three French cities, for at least five years.They found those who used a lot of olive oil in cooking or as a dressing or dip had a lower risk of stroke than those who never used it.The researchers say older people should be given new dietary advice regarding olive oil, based on the findings, which are published in the journal Neurology.Lead author, Dr Cecilia Samieri, of the University of Bordeaux, said: “Our research suggests that a new set of dietary recommendations should be issued to prevent stroke in people 65 and older.“Stroke is so common in older people, and olive oil would be an inexpensive and easy way to help prevent it.”The researchers studied the medical records of 7,625 people aged 65 and older living in Bordeaux, Dijon and Montpelier.They were asked whether they used olive oil in cooking, on salads or with bread intensively, moderately or never.Most used extra virgin olive oil, which is common in France.After around five years, 148 of the men and women had had a stroke.The study found the stroke risk was 41% lower in those who regularly used olive oil compared with those who abstained, once other factors such as diet, exercise and weight were taken into account.This works out as a 1.5% risk over six years, compared with 2.6%.Protective functionCommenting on the study, published in Neurology, Sharlin Ahmed of the Stroke Association, said: “Olive oil has long been known to have potential health benefits.“It is believed that it could protect against conditions such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease and so it’s promising to see that it could have a similar protective function against stroke.“However, it’s important to note that a person’s risk of stroke would only be reduced through consuming olive oil as an alternative to other cooking fats and as part of a healthy balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and salt.“This is also a study based on responses from the public and not a clinical trial. A lot more research therefore needs to be carried out to scientifically test the effectiveness of olive oil as an ingredient that can protect against stroke.”BBC News Tweetlast_img read more

Registration open for Summer Manufacturing Camp

first_imgBatesville, In. —Registrations are now open for the fourth annual summer Manufacturing Camp for middle school students, which will take place June 18-20 from noon to 5 p.m.The camp is designed by six leading companies in Ripley County, Genesis: Pathways to Success, and Ivy Tech Community College, and transportation for the camp is provided by the Batesville Community School Corporation. The companies involved in the camp include Batesville Casket, Batesville Tool & Die, Hillenbrand, Hill-Rom, Wood-Mizer, and Thrive Market.“The purpose of the camp is to expose students to the wide variety of career opportunities that exist locally in the manufacturing sector,” commented Cheryll Obendorf, Genesis Director.  “With strong support from Ivy Tech and the local manufacturing community for programs like this, middle school students are extraordinarily fortunate to experience manufacturing through this camp.”During this camp, students will discover what is being manufactured in their own backyards by meeting with leading industry experts and touring local manufacturing facilities.  Each day, students will engage in hands-on activities that teach skills necessary in modern manufacturing.

They also obtain knowledge of the skills needed, high school classes available to help them obtain those skills, and postsecondary training offered to support further skill development.“Many of Ripley County’s manufacturers are home grown businesses; businesses that were started by local residents whose hard work and dedication has allowed them to build global companies. Manufacturing Camp is an opportunity for us to highlight that entrepreneurial spirit to the workforce of the future, as well as to emphasize the impact the manufacturing sector has on the local economy,” stated Amy Streator, Executive Director of the Ripley County Community Foundation.Space is limited to 60 middle school students from throughout southeastern Indiana.

McDowell feels game is improving

first_img The Northern Irishman, who was victorious at Pebble Beach back in 2010, has endured a low-key season thus far, making six cuts at nine PGA Tour events. He is therefore looking for a timely bounce at TPC Southwind, which holds a purse of 6million US dollars (£3.8million) and acts as a warm-up for next week’s US Open at Chambers Bay. Graeme McDowell hopes the FedEx St Jude Classic provides the “competitive sharpness” he feels he is lacking before he targets a second US Open title. McDowell told “When it comes to preparing for major championships there are a few ways you can do it, you can try and simulate the conditions you’ll find the following week. “The way that the US Open jumps around it’s very difficult to have a solid warm-up venue the week before so you’ve got to take the rough with the smooth. “Some years it’s going to be a great preparation and some years maybe not. “I think the comparison of the two golf courses is that they’re at opposite ends of the spectrum but I love coming here and getting some competitive sharpness. “I think, going into a major championship, preparing and playing the golf course and having your game plan together is key – but being competitively sharp and feeling confident that you are playing well, those are just important. “For me it’s been a slow year, I kind of feel that my game’s turning a corner so I’ll be teeing it up and trying to get some competitive sharpness.” Dustin Johnson – currently ranked seventh in the world – is looking to claim first prize at Southwind for the second time having done so in 2012. The powerful driver arrives in Memphis on the back of consecutive top-15 finishes while his fellow American Webb Simpson tied for third here a year ago. Englishman Luke Donald this week sealed qualification for the US Open and makes his first start in the St Jude Classic. Billy Horschel, Ryan Palmer and Phil Mickelson are also keen to perfect their games ahead of the second major of the year. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
