Feb 13, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – As the H5N1 virus spreads, so does the toll of human illness cases and deaths known or suspected to be due to the deadly influenza.The World Health Organization (WHO) today announced that two human deaths in Indonesia have been confirmed as H5N1 cases. The agency identified the victims as a 22-year-old woman who fell ill Jan 25 and died Feb 10, and a 27-year-old woman who fell ill Jan 31 and died Feb 10. The cases were first reported last week when tests in local laboratories were positive.They hailed from different areas of West Java province. No direct contact with poultry was reported, although both women had poultry near their homes, and some poultry died in the 27-year-old’s neighborhood 4 days before she fell ill.The Jakarta Post’s online edition also noted that a man from East Jakarta who died Feb 10 had tested positive for H5N1 in local tests. The WHO tally for Indonesia stands at 26 cases and 18 deaths, excluding that man.Bloomberg news service reported today that an Indonesian couple and their 2-year-old daughter are being treated for possible avian flu. If confirmed, those cases could represent the country’s sixth cluster of human infections, a doctor at the Jakarta hospital that admitted them yesterday told Bloomberg.In addition, the WHO has confirmed the 12th human case in China, first reported by Chinese officials last week. The case involved a 20-year-old woman in Hunan who became ill on Jan 27 and died Feb 4, following the culling of poultry in her household, WHO said.Overall, the WHO said today, 169 people have fallen ill with H5N1 infections, and 91 of them have died.Along with the rapid spread of the virus—which was confirmed in poultry in five new countries last week—people with suspected H5N1 infections are appearing around the globe.In Nigeria, blood samples from two children living on a poultry farm are being tested for evidence of H5N1 infections, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).The 4-year-old boy and 4-month-old boy had high temperatures and coughed up blood 2 weeks ago, their father told Reuters news service. The signs and symptoms appeared at about the same time that 250 of the farmer’s geese, turkey, and chickens suddenly died.”The two of them were coughing and if they sneezed, blood came from their nose and throat,” father Isaac Achi said. “I took them to the hospital and they recovered.” The family’s farm is near a farm where the virus was confirmed in poultry.Officials are having a hard time changing Nigerian cultural norms to persuade people to follow safer poultry handling practices, Reuters reported.”I have been in the field and they say, ‘What are you telling us? We eat dead chickens and we have been doing that for centuries,'” said Abdulsalam Nasidi, who is overseeing efforts to prevent the spread of the virus among people.Ironically, the fact that polio is endemic in Nigeria may prove helpful in the fight against avian flu there, a Washington Post report said today. Thousands of vaccinators and surveillance officers are already in place in Nigeria to stem the spread of polio.”The polio organization has offered to use all its network to deliver information, and also for surveillance and case detection,” said Mohammed Belhocine, WHO representative in Nigeria. “We are going to support all kinds of activities to mitigate the impact of avian flu.”For example, field supervisors are teaching village leaders chicken-avoidance messages and allowing the leaders to decide how best to spread the word in villages, said David L. Heymann, director of the WHO polio eradication efforts.In Greece, where avian flu was confirmed in some wild swans last week, two people who had contact with dead or wounded birds are now being tested for avian flu, Bloomberg reported today. A 19-year-old hunter developed a high fever and collapsed after handling two ducks, and a 29-year-old man rescued an injured swan and later developed flulike symptoms. Both are hospitalized, Bloomberg reported.In southern Iraq, investigators were looking into six suspected human H5N1 infections, the New York Times reported yesterday. One of the cases involves a 25-year-old fisherman who died after having contact with his backyard poultry. He had been ill for more than 2 weeks. Five of his cousins, who lived with him in Amara and also had contact with the household poultry, were also being tested.See alsoWHO update on Indonesiahttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2006_02_13/en/index.htmlWHO update on Chinahttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2006_02_13a/en/index.html
By Michele J. Kuhn Brian George is bullish on Sea Bright.“We’ll be back and we’ll be better than ever,” he said.Brian George in front of the former location of his store Northshore Menswear in Sea Bright.George, the longtime owner of Northshore Menswear, saw almost the entire inventory of upscale clothing swept out of the building at 1080 Ocean Ave. when both the Shrewsbury River and the Atlantic Ocean smashed into the store with Super Storm Sandy.He is in the midst of making plans to reopen his store in Sea Bright early next year and will be located for the next three months at 45 West River Road, Rumson, in the same space he occupied 30 years ago when he first opened his haberdashery.“Temporarily, we’ll be bringing the store to this office building,” he said of the Rumson pop-up shop.The short-term location will be open seven days a week with the same hours as the Sea Bright store: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Tuesday and Friday-Saturday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.Then, sometime around March 1, George expects to move into a new Sea Bright location at 1127 Ocean Ave., in a building he is referring to as “Big Yellow.” The three-story building will be the new permanent home of Northshore Menswear with one big difference. The service and quality will be the same but George will be adding women’s wear to the clothing store.After seeing the destruction that the storm brought Sea Bright, why is George intent on returning to the borough?“First of all,” he said, “I have a love affair with the town. The people are genuine. It’s unique. When I was a kid growing up in Sayreville, we used to go to the public beach (in Sea Bright). My parents used to drive us through Rumson … I’ve told people that when I was a kid, this is where I would go to the beach. Now I look at it every day.”The Sea Bright store is Northshore Menswear’s third location. The first is where George will return for three months and the second was in an older home he bought on East River Road in Rumson and where he stayed for 20 years.“I knew when I got (to Sea Bright), I was vulnerable with the river on the back and the ocean on the front. I had to buy insurance, I knew it and it’s not cheap but you have to do it,” he said.George, a Rumson resident, said it has taken a lot of work to arrange the temporary move to River Road. While the old building now sits eerily wide-open on the side, George has been gratified by the response he has gotten from others.“Our vendors have been phenomenal, very supportive … We had nothing left, not my computer. My cash register is at the police department. It was banged up. All of our inventory was washed out of the building. We are starting from scratch; it’s like when we started 30 years ago.“All of my customer lists are gone but people are calling me from all over the country, expressing their support, telling me that when we reopen, they will be there and asking us if we need any help. I think that’s really great,” George said.George, who is an officer in the town’s business association, had prepared for the storm. Inventory was placed 4 feet above the floor level, merchandise was pushed to the back of the building, the windows were boarded up and the doors were sandbagged. “We never, ever realized that there would be a 12-foot surge from the river that would plow into the side of our building, taking the merchandise out when it receded,” he said.“We’ve gotten calls from people … a good mile and a half from the store who had clothing of mine, fixtures of mine in their backyard. My pool table, my collection of 70 college football helmets … that are washing up in people’s yards,” he said.The old building is condemned and will be demolished shortly.The new building “is on a high point” he said. “I always liked the building. It has a lot of character.”George said he feels for those who lost their homes in the storm.“I lost basically some memorabilia I’ve collected over 30 years that’s dear to me and the inventory but, technically, it’s just stuff. It’s not my home,” he said. “We are insured at the store and so we’ll be able to bounce back. We weren’t touched at all at home.”George said his business is like his “fourth child. It’s who I am … I’m a merchant. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do since I was a kid.”He has affixed a wooden sign to the front of his former Ocean Avenue store that says: “ We believe in Sea Bright!… We’ll be back!”“I really believe that,” he said. “Sea Bright is unique and I want to commit to that.”

Surveys of extrasolar planets are making our solar system look unusual. Most stars that host a family of planets have the gas giants close in, an article on Space.com states. The “hot Jupiters” seen around many stars would most likely eject any rocky planets from the habitable zone. “Of the nearly 250 planets discovered so far outside our solar system, most are gas giants that orbit extremely close to their stars.” The observations may be a selection effect. It’s easier to detect hot Jupiters than distant ones. A team from University of Arizona looked for gas giants at the 10 AU range, assuming that “young” gas giants would be brighter. They found none around 54 nearby stars. This could mean that gas giants at large radial distances are too faint to detect, or that they are rare. Current theory also predicts that gas giants would be less common the farther away from the star. “The two leading theories about how planets form—core accretion and disk instability—have problems making gas giants out at distances beyond 20 AU.” In our solar system, Jupiter is at about 5 AU, Saturn at 10, Uranus at 20, and Neptune at 30. This arrangement allows a suite of rocky planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars) to occupy stable orbits closer in to the sun. The Earth-Moon system occupies the narrow “sweet spot” called the continuously habitable zone. A more speculative article on Space.com claimed that signatures of heavy elements on some stars might indicate that planets had fallen in. The article claims that this might support the “disk instability” theory which suggests planets form rapidly from knots in the debris disk. These inferences were only made indirectly from spectra, however, not from actual observations of planets impacting their host stars. But if validated, it would indicate another hazard in making solar systems: keeping a planetary system in orbit safely out of reach of the planet-eating monster.How many AU is the Earth from the sun? Exactly one! That’s a silly question, because the astronomical unit (AU) is defined in terms of the sun-Earth distance. Impress your gullible friends with this coincidence. Though insufficient as a standalone piece of evidence, this article’s claim adds to the growing realization among astronomers that our solar system is special. When you add in all the other independent evidences as described in The Privileged Planet, the cumulative case becomes convincing.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Tags:#start#startups Sprouter’s 10,000-plus users can now link their accounts and send updates back and forth between the two services, either by choosing to push all of their updates out from Sprouter, or by using the #Sprouter hashtag in Twitter. “Twitter has a huge audience, and we recognize that many Sprouter users also use the service,” says CEO Sarah Prevette. “Now it’s easy for members to keep both accounts up-to-date while still leveraging the niche power of Sprouter – Twitter integration will only add to the number of conversations taking place and resources being shared.”In addition, tools for discovering contacts from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Gmail now make Sprouter a less lonely experience. When I tried them out, they all worked with the exception of Facebook, which after connecting left me with a blank page. Multiple attempts on various browsers returned the same issue; Sprouter’s community manager Erin Bury says they are looking into the error. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market chris cameron Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A few weeks ago we brought you a brief list of social networks for meeting and conversing with entrepreneurs, and in the comments section we received lots of suggestions that could have made the list as well. One such suggestion was Sprouter, which is, for lack of a better description and despite having a few unique features, a Twitter clone for entrepreneurs. Users can enter a 140-character status update and see both a public timeline and a list of updates from the users they follow, which can be filtered into groups. Users can also create “Events” and “Topics” around which to talk about by using hashtags – a nice feature that adds on what the Twitter culture has developed. When I checked out Sprouter a few weeks ago, it was lacking a few obvious features, namely Twitter integration and the ability to find friends on other social networks. Just yesterday, however, both of these features made their debut on the service, making it exponentially more useful. Related Posts Previously, the most glaring problem with the service was that I had no idea if anyone I knew was on Sprouter. With the contact importer I now know that a handful of my contacts are in fact using the service, and with the new Twitter integration, I could see myself and others making use of this service to share information and communicate with entrepreneurs.One of the features that helped Twitter become a break-out success was their support for SMS updates and their API, which spawned countless desktop and mobile applications. Sprouter says they have an iPhone application on the way in order to view and post statuses, but the new Twitter integration with the #Sprouter hashtag makes any Twitter client a portal through which to post to the service.

Twitter/@BleacherReportMidway through the fourth quarter of Saturday’s Big 12 showdown between Baylor and Oklahoma, Bears safety Terrell Burt went down with what Kirk Herbstreit, on air, called a “bush league” flop. As it turns out, Burt’s injury was legit, and Herbstreit later apologized for his comments on Twitter. Today, Burt took to the platform, and made sure to let everyone know that he’d do something like that.I will never ever fake an injury. I will always fight for my brothers and give them my all regardless. #BaylorNation #lionhearted— Terrell Burt (@terrell_burt_13) November 16, 2015Burt had reportedly been injured on a prior play, but did not want to come out of the game, so teammate Ryan Reid had to tell him to go down to receive treatment.
