WHO: world has historic chance to gird for pandemic flu

first_imgNov 11, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – The outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in Asia gives the world its first opportunity to prepare a vaccine in advance for a potential pandemic strain of flu, the World Health Organization (WHO) said today as it convened a meeting of vaccine companies and health officials to consider the challenge.Representatives of vaccine manufacturers and government officials from the manufacturers’ countries are meeting at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss how to develop vaccines for pandemic flu.”The current outbreak of H5N1 is a stark warning that conditions are highly favourable for the emergence of a pandemic virus,” the WHO said in a statement on its Web site. “For the first time in history, there is a window of opportunity to consider using a pandemic vaccine in humans at a time when a virus with significant pandemic potential is circulating in large parts of Asia.”The H5N1 strain of avian flu has infected at least 44 people in Asia this year and has killed 32. The virus has not been known to spread from person to person, but experts fear that it could acquire this ability through mutation, potentially leading to a pandemic.The WHO noted that vaccines have never been available during past pandemics, including the last two, in 1957 and 1968, when annual vaccination programs for ordinary flu were fully established. Past pandemic strains were not discovered until they began spreading internationally, the agency said. The viruses spread worldwide in 6 to 8 months, far too short a time to develop and distribute a vaccine.A few companies have begun to develop vaccines for potential pandemic viruses, the WHO said. “However, production capacity for a pandemic vaccine will be vastly inadequate unless other companies engage in vaccine seed development and preparation of batches for clinical testing,” the agency said.The statement said vaccine makers face two major challenges: finding the optimal formulation for a pandemic vaccine through clinical trials, and registering their vaccine with their national drug licensing agency.”Such registration, done with a ‘template’ influenza subtype which will eventually be replaced by the strain actually causing the epidemic, is a condition which every manufacturer must fulfill to produce pandemic vaccine, regardless of when the next pandemic occurs and which strain causes it,” the WHO said.In the United States, Aventis Pasteur Inc. and Chiron Corp. each won a government contract last May to produce 8,000 to 10,000 doses of an H5N1 vaccine based on virus isolated from a Vietnamese patient. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said it would use the vaccines in clinical trials.In September, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded a contract to Aventis Pasteur to make 2 million doses of its H5N1 vaccine for about $13 million. HHS officials then said clinical trials would start late this year or early next year.See also:WHO statement about Geneva meetinghttp://www.who.int/csr/disease/influenza/meeting2004_11_08/en/Sep 21, 2004, CIDRAP News story “HHS awards contract for H5N1 avian flu vaccine”May 28, 2004, CIDRAP News story, “NIAID seeks vaccines for H5N1 avian flu”last_img read more

first_imgNumerous changes taking place in modern society, be they economic, technological, climatic, political or any other nature, affect the relatively sensitive tourist market in different ways. Demand is changing in terms of demand and the paths to a satisfied tourist today are completely different than maybe just a decade ago. This is largely due to changes in the value system, so more valued healthy, comfortable, new, different, simple, natural, cultural, urban and as much as possible adapted to the specific wishes of potential market segments.Content buyers want to learn, get to know, remember something that will deepen their knowledge, enrich it, enrich it and contribute to the quality of their lives. It can be assumed that in the future, which brings an increasingly hectic everyday life, cities and other environments will try to create their own identity systems of tourist offer that will offer people an “escape” from the hustle and bustle, vacation, attractive leisure content…The most beautiful feature of a tourist offer that has the greatest potential for the cause of all the consequent changes in the cultural offer, economic profit and the economy as a whole are the manifestations. In the next few lines we bring you a wonderful synergy that is happening in Split. Split, which is a mirror of the cultural offer of our Dalmatia in the summer season, in its preseason offers equally valuable content based on different values, values ​​that promote modern culture and even more beautiful, through the academic community that seeks to connect and cooperate internationally.That is why you must visit Split and the art festival until May 19 “Split Art Convention”. The festival is conceived as an international platform for the exhibition and presentation of contemporary student works, and their connection through cooperation and socializing. The long-term goal is to set the festival on an international level, provide students with the opportunity to present themselves and set the city of Split as an ideal platform for further development of contemporary art. In addition to exhibiting finished student works, the goal is also educational.Ivana Kovač, a student of classical composition at the Rotterdam Conservatory of Music, will hold a lecture on “Independent Artists and the Sustainability of Entrepreneurship in the Arts” on Wednesday (May 17) at 16:00 pm in the Multimedia Hall of the University Library in Split (Ruđera Boškovića Street 31).

After the First International Festival Split Art Convention, the band RØLØ will be in charge of socializing, playing from 21:00 in the club Cirkus Split – Monty Python.Split has once again shown that it works to create culturally inspired tourist facilities, because the city is becoming the basic space of culture of the future, then it is possible to assume that city identities will surely become a cultural phenomenon in the future, and therefore an increasing offer of attractiveness. is culture largely recognized as a vital development segment of tourism through the domain of “cultural tourism” which, in addition to the traditional focus of valorization of cultural and historical heritage, also activates new cultural and creative production as part of the tourist offer.This is the level of functioning of communities in which identity issues become the critical point of a new understanding and practice of community. Culture today in modern tourism has not only a perceptual role, but it is also an important content of the stay in which tourists are active participants. Moreover, culture becomes not only one of the more important contents of a stay, but often also the main motive for traveling to certain destinations.last_img read more

Treñas: No to red tape in the time of ‘corona’

first_imgThe mayor lamented that despite thecurrent emergency public health situation, DepEd and DILG could not temporarilyslacken on the paper requirements “that make it difficult for us to use theschool.” It was good that the University Iloilo(UI)-Phinma and Sta. Maria Catholic School offered their school facilities,said Treñas. “Situations like this make me verysad,” said Treñas. DepEd and DILG sought a memorandum ofagreement (MOA) with the city government. The city government thus decided toremove seven patients under investigation (PUIs) and a person under monitoring(PUM) for possible COVID-19 infection from Iloilo Central Elementary Schoolwhere they have been confined in isolation for several days now. PUIs are persons showing COVID-19symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing. PUMs are those notshowing the symptoms but have a history of travel to areas with confirmed COVID-19cases. ILOILO City – Mayor Jerry Treñasexpressed frustration at the “so many” paper requirements that the Departmentof Education (DepEd) and Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG)asked from the city government for the use of Iloilo Central Elementary Schoolas isolation facility for suspected cases of coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19). Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN On the other hand, he thanked UI andSta. Maria Catholic School for their generosity and understanding. They would be transferred to a privateschool which offered a building as temporary isolation facility for suspectedCOVID-19 cases, according to Treñas. Pending the release of their COVID-19test results, isolating PUIs and PUMs is a must as a precautionary measure. “Masmaayo pa ang mga private schools kay nag-offer sila facilities ipausar lang anay to us. The MOA withthem will come later kon magtawhay na,”said Treñas. “So bay-an ta na lang ang DepEd. Magwana lang ta da sa central school kayginapabudlayan kita,” he said./PNlast_img read more

Athlete’s and Marijuana

first_imgIf athlete’s were not getting their names in public enough for some of their off-field exploits, now we have the marijuana debate going on in society.  After all, it is legal in Colorado to deal in marijuana.  Does that mean an adult athlete in Colorado can freely participate in its usage just like any other citizen of the state?  What kind of rules can a university place on its student athletes?All across the United States there is more and more support for legalizing this plant, and each voting period it seems another state makes it legal.  How many tests can an athlete fail and still participate?  Some universities now allow 2 failed tests before they suspend the athlete.  Everyone knows that whatever drug people start out with, most will eventually try something harder.  We do not need collegiate athletes snorting heroin.If you do not clamp down on marijuana, what will you do with the casual use of alcohol by athletes and their occasional DWI’s and/or DUI’s?  Do you allow them 2 failed tests, also?  It is not an easy solution unless you ban everything.last_img read more

Rev. Humbert Moster

first_imgFranciscan Fr. Humbert Moster, OFM, was a people person: warm, plain-spoken, down-to-earth. Those qualities made him a popular pastor, chaplain and missionary for 60 years. Fr. Moster died unexpectedly June 1st at University Hospital in Cincinnati following a fall he suffered at Holy Family Friary in Oldenburg, Indiana. He was 90 years old.Fr. Moster served as a pastor or associate in Cincinnati, Ohio, Lafayette, Indiana, Southfield, Michigan, Bloomington, Illinois, and Hamilton, Ohio, but his heart belonged to Oldenburg, where he was born Oct. 21, 1929. He and his twin Walter were among 11 children of John and Emma (Obermeyer) Moster. Influenced by the friars and Franciscan Sisters, he entered St. Francis Seminary in Cincinnati in 1944, was received as a novice by the Province of St. John the Baptist in 1948, and professed first vows as a friar in 1949. He professed solemn vows in 1952 while studying Philosophy at Duns Scotus College in Southfield, Michigan. After Theology studies in Oldenburg he was ordained a priest June 11, 1957.Apart from assignments as a hospital chaplain in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Louisville, Kentucky, Fr. Moster was a parish man. He returned to Oldenburg in 1993 as Associate Pastor of Holy Family Church and became a parochial “sub” for the Batesville Indiana Deanery, eventually serving as Parochial Administrator and then Pastor at St. Mary of the Rock and St. Cecilia parishes, adding St. Peter Parish in Franklin County Indiana to his care in 1996. A skilled carpenter, “He remodeled, rebuilt, restored,” wherever he lived, says friar Dan Anderson.Fr. Moster made a leap of faith in 2000, joining the friars’ new mission in Savanna-la-Mar, Jamaica.

He moved to Cincinnati in 2006 but on weekends drove to the small parishes he served in Indiana. He finally retired in 2015, first to St. Anthony Friary in Mt. Airy, then to Holy Family Friary in his beloved Oldenburg.Preceded in death by his parents and most of his siblings, Fr. Moster is survived by brothers Bernard (Mary Ann), Leo (Joanne) and Anthony (Patricia), and by his sister Beata Moloney and sister-in-law Kathleen Moster, as well as 45 nieces and nephews, many great nieces and nephews and his friar classmate, Fr.

Rodgers demands Reds response

first_img There was a tangible atmosphere of deflation around Anfield, which had been a cauldron of noise just 90 minutes previously as it had in many other home games in the last few weeks, but Rodgers will not allow that to permeate into a squad which had won 11 successive league matches prior to Sunday. “I think we have been on a run of games in which the games we have won has been exceptional and to lose against Chelsea is a big disappointment because we haven’t had many games we have lost,” said the Reds boss. “This is a great group of players and we will take this on the chin and will continue to work on. We’ll recover and go again and hopefully we’ll get the win against Crystal Palace. “Our objective is for ourselves. We need to win our two games and see where it takes us and we will be fine.” Rodgers has always argued that making the leap from seventh to first was unprecedented and that his side had exceeded expectations this season. That they are still leading Chelsea and City, who have spent considerably more, is an achievement in itself and the Reds boss believes there are plenty of positives to be achieved from taking six points from their remaining two fixtures. “We are two points above Chelsea, which is phenomenal when you see the squad they have, and if we win our last two games we will finish above them,” added Rodgers. “If we can finish off the season and win these two games we’ll finish above them and maybe above Manchester City – but there’s still a way to go.” Chelsea’s stifling defensive tactics at Anfield have generated much debate and while they obviously had merit as Jose Mourinho’s side came out on top, for Rodgers – a man of purist footballing principles – it stuck in the throat somewhat. “We have a way of working and I take great pride in that,” he said. “We might not have got the result but we’ve seen over the course of the season that we have made great strides and we’ll continue to do that. “When you win the game of course you will say you are the better team but certainly we were the better team because we were the ones wanting to win the game. “I don’t think there is any disputing that, but it is hard to reinforce that when you lose. “What the game will do is prepare us for Crystal Palace. We will have to deal with long balls forward, which we did well. “We will have to deal with long throw-ins, so we got the chance to do that. “They will have lots of players behind the ball, which we will be prepared for as well.” Off the field the £260million scheme for the regeneration of the Anfield area – including the rebuilding of two new stands at the club’s ground – took another step forward after the Strategic Regeneration Framework was agreed by Liverpool City Council after public consultation closed. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists his players will take their setback against Chelsea on the chin as they focus on keeping their Premier League title chances alive. The 2-0 defeat at Anfield took the destiny of a first championship in 24 years out of their hands with Manchester City, three points behind with a superior goal difference and a match in hand, now the favourites. By the time the Reds play Crystal Palace on Monday evening they could be third in the table and will be relying on near-neighbours Everton to do them a huge favour by taking points off Manuel Pellegrini’s side at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Odion Ighalo gives Watford much-needed win over below-par Swansea

first_img Ighalo, who committed his future to the newly-promoted side by agreeing a five-year contract on Friday, calmly converted from six yards in the second half to secure Watford’s first league win of the season. Valon Behrami was sent off for a reckless stamp on Andre Ayew after 64 minutes, but a below-par Swansea never threatened to equalise and the Hornets held on for a much-needed victory. Press Association Odion Ighalo scored Watford’s first goal since the opening day of the season to claim a 1-0 victory against Swansea at Vicarage Road. Victor Ibarbo, who arrived on a season-long loan from Roma on deadline day, received international clearance and was named on the Watford bench by Quique Sanchez Flores. Swansea manager Garry Monk fielded his strongest side with Jonjo Shelvey, fresh from his England call-up, marshalling the midfield, and Wayne Routledge preferred to Jefferson Montero. The first real chance of the match fell to the hosts with 10 minutes gone when Ikechi Anya’s cross from the left landed at the feet of Sebastian Prodl. But, from the edge of the Swansea area, his half-volley went narrowly over the bar. Eight minutes later and Watford were on the attack again. This time Almen Abdi took aim at goal, but his effort clipped off the heels of Neil Taylor and went out for a corner. Incredibly the Hornets were still awaiting their first shot on target in over two games. And it was in fact the visitors who would be the first to bring a goalkeeper into action. Bafetimbi Gomis, scorer of nine goals in his last 10 Premier League outings, turned and shot from the edge of the penalty area to bring a fine save from Heurelho Gomes in the Watford goal. Ikechi Anya was then caught dallying on the ball near his own corner flag. Ayew stole possession and he found Gomis, who had fallen to the floor, but his improvised effort went straight into the hands of a thankful Gomes. And then with the interval approaching, it came, Watford’s first shot on target in nearly two and a half matches. Ighalo wriggled in from the left-hand side, but his effort was saved by the feet of Lukas Fabianski. The half-time whistle at a sun-drenched Vicarage Road blew and the score was goalless. With the hour mark approaching a largely tepid affair then suddenly burst into life. Ighalo drove into the penalty box but his effort was wide of Fabianski’s goal. Moments later came the breakthrough and with it a little bit of history. A long punt down field from Gomes was headed down by Troy Deeney and, unmarked, six yards out, Ighalo calmly sidefooted past Fabianski. It was the least the hosts deserved and Vicarage Road erupted. But with the Watford fans still celebrating their first home goal in the Premier League this season, they were stunned into silence as Behrami was shown a straight red card for a stamp on Ayew above the knee. With the extra man Swansea would have been expected to up the ante, but Monk’s side barely called Gomes into action and it was Watford who had the best of the remaining chances with Fabianski forced into a late double save in the closing stages. TWEET OF THE MATCH “7 minutes” – England cricketer Steven Finn has a long wait in stoppage time before he can celebrate Watford’s big win. PLAYER RATINGS Watford Heurelho Gomes 7 (out of 10) Allan Nyom 7 Sebastian Prodl 7 Jose Manuel Jurado 5 Valon Behrami 5 Troy Deeney 7 Craig Cathcart 6 Ikechi Anya 6 Almen Abdi 6 Odion Ighalo 8 Etienne Capoue 7 Subs Ben Watson 6 Steven Berghuis 5 Alessandro Diamanti 5 Swansea Lukasz Fabianski 6 Neil Taylor 6 Ashley Williams 6 Jonjo Shelvey 6 Andre Ayew 6 Wayne Routledge 5 Bafetimbi Gomis 6 Gylfi Sigurdsson 5 Jack Cork 5 Kyle Naughton 6 Federico Fernandez 6 Subs Jefferson Montero 5 Ki Sung-Yeung 5 Eder 5 STAR MAN Odion Ighalo was a constant thorn in Swansea’s arm all afternoon and his goal was no more than he deserved. It capped a strong 24 hours for the Nigerian who signed a five-year contract on Friday. MOMENT OF THE MATCH It has to be Watford’s first effort on goal in some 221 minutes of Premier League action. Ighalo will take the plaudits after he bundled his way into the Swansea penalty area – but his effort was comfortably stopped by Lukasz Fabianski. The best was, however yet to come. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Swansea had been unbeaten heading into Saturday’s match, but Garry Monk’s side were woefully off the pace here and Watford’s victory was richly deserved. MOAN OF THE MATCH Bafetimbi Gomis may be in fine goal-scoring fettle, but the 30-year-old French striker was flagged offside on three occasions inside a 10-minute spell in the first half. It summed up a disappointing day Gomis and for the visiting side. WHO’S UP NEXT Newcastle v Watford (Premier League, September 19) Swansea v Everton (Premier League, September 19) last_img read more
