Nigeria’s Ebola outbreak spreads

Nigeria’s Ebola outbreak spreads

first_imgThe doctor who treated him became ill on 11 August. He continued treating patients at his private clinic for 2 days, operating on at least two of them. Between 13 and 16 August, he was ill enough that he stayed home, but, according to the WHO report, he received multiple visitors who came to celebrate the birth of a baby. On 16 August, he was hospitalized. He did not tell doctors there that he had been exposed to Ebola.The WHO report is grim: “During his 6 day period of hospitalization, he was attended by the majority of the hospital’s health care staff,” it says, and members of his church community visited and performed a healing ritual that apparently involved laying on of hands. “On 21 August, he was taken to an ultrasound clinic, where 2 physicians performed an abdominal scan. He died the next day.”It was not until 27 August that tests confirmed he was infected with Ebola.His wife (who is also a doctor) and another patient at the hospital where he sought treatment are also infected. Twenty-one trained teams are monitoring more than 200 contacts, and a 26-bed isolation facility is set up. WHO says two decontamination teams and a burial team “are equipped and operational.” The diplomat, associated with the Economic Community of West African States, may face manslaughter charges, according to Nigerian press reports. *The Ebola Files: Given the current Ebola outbreak, unprecedented in terms of number of people killed and rapid geographic spread, Science and Science Translational Medicine have made a collection of research and news articles on the viral disease freely available to researchers and the general public.*Update, 3 September, 5:09 p.m.: This article has been updated to clarify the number of monitoring teams at work. The hopes that Nigeria’s Ebola outbreak could be quickly stamped out have evaporated. The World Health Organization (WHO) this afternoon issued its first detailed report of the spread of the virus in Port Harcourt, Nigeria’s oil hub. Last week, authorities announced that a doctor there had died of the disease, after secretly treating a diplomat who had been infected in Lagos by a traveler from Liberia.The doctor had close contact with family, friends, and health care workers during his illness, but he did not disclose his previous exposure to the virus. His infection wasn’t confirmed until 5 days after his death. Experts are now following hundreds of the doctor’s contacts, 60 of which had “high-risk or very high-risk exposure,” WHO says.The diplomat had been instructed to stay in Lagos in quarantine. Instead he flew to Port Harcourt, where he was treated—in a hotel room—by the doctor from 1 to 3 August. The diplomat survived and returned to Lagos, presenting himself again to health authorities, who confirmed he was no longer was infected. He did not tell them that he had sought treatment in Port Harcourt.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

India most successful T20I side in history, Pakistan a close second

India most successful T20I side in history, Pakistan a close second

first_imgIndia on Wednesday night trampled Sri Lanka by 93 runs in the first Twenty20 international at the Barabati stadium in Cuttack.Put in to bat, India rode on KL Rahul’s 48-ball 61 and a quickfire 34-ball 68-run unbeaten stand between MS Dhoni and Manish Pandey to post a challenging 180/3.In reply, Sri Lanka were crumbled to just 87 runs thanks to Yuzvendra Chahal’s 4/23 as India recorded their biggest-ever victory in terms of runs. Hardik Pandya (3/29) and Kuldeep Yadav (2/18) also made valuable contributions as India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.The tourists, who also lost the three-match Test series 1-0, were all out for 87, matching their second lowest total in the format. Sri Lanka had also lost the one day international series 2-1.Courtesy their victory, India now have the best win-loss ratio (1.61) in the T20 internationals among the Test playing nations. India’s arch-rivals and giants in the format are close second at 1.60.India have been flying high in the shortest format in the past two years with 22 victories in 32 matches.Coming in to bowl inside the batting powerplay, Chahal showed exemplary control with a slippery ball, owing to the dew on the ground, and finished with four wickets in his four overs.Left-arm wrist spinner Yadav snubbed out the remaining chances of a Sri Lanka challenge with figures of 2-18. Seamer Hardik Pandya wrapped up the tail with 3-29 as Sri Lanka were bundled out in 16 overs.India, resting their top players including newly-wed regular skipper Virat Kohli, lost stand-in captain Rohit Sharma (17) early but Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, who made 24, added 63 for the second wicket to give the home side a solid base.advertisementFormer captain Dhoni and Pandey provided the late flourish with a fourth-wicket stand of 68 as the duo added 61 in the last four overs of India’s innings.Dhoni remained unbeaten on 39 from 22 balls while Pandey made 32 off 18 deliveries.Sri Lanka must now win the second match at Indore on Friday to keep alive their hopes of claiming at least one series across the formats on their tour.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

AFLW takes pride in off-field gains as Dogs break records on it

AFLW takes pride in off-field gains as Dogs break records on it

first_imgIn the absence of their skipper and spiritual leader, the Dogs had been widely written off as premiership fancies. Brennan’s injury was considered a blow too many for a side that had already lost its No1 draft pick and promising youngster Daria Bannister to ACLs. In their absence, however, it was the lesser-lights who stood up, none more so than Brooke Lochland, the former speed skater who mused that she may have been at the Winter Olympics if it hadn’t have been for AFLW. Her seven majors smashed the previous individual record of four equalled by Erin Phillips the week before in a performance even her coach admitted he “didn’t see coming”. Bonnie Toogood, already a clear winner for best surname in the AFLW, also stood tall with three goals of her own, while the usual suspects in Emma Kearney (26 disposals) and Ellie Blackburn (18) were critical to their team’s fortunes. Together, the Bulldogs piled on twelve goals to break the record for the highest AFLW score, all the while sending a reminder to the naysayers that the competition (which had no pre-season) needs time for players and teams to hit their groove. This, clearly, was the performance the AFL has been waiting for – but it was patience, not any memo, that did the trick.For Carlton, it was a miserable night given even their touted defensive nous broke down to allow a flood of goals. The absence of captain Bri Davey and, even more importantly, contested-mark specialist Tayla Harris, was telling, but the Bulldogs were missing personnel of equal talent. Where the Blues looked bereft of ideas, the Dogs ran with a fluency of a well-drilled team confident of their capacity to break the lines. The eventual, record-breaking margin of 73 points was a fitting measure of their dominance.

Rainbows adorn makeshift stalls as butch dykes hold hands, pausing to take it in. No, this isn’t Mardi Gras, or Melbourne’s Midsumma, it’s the Whitten Oval on a Friday night – and the scene is set for a game of Australian rules football. Yes, this is footy at its most incongruous – or perhaps yet another reminder of what sets AFLW so far apart from its male cousin.The AFL has at times been accused of symbolism when it comes to occasions such as these, but it was hard to be cynical when one took in the effort that had been made for the AFLW’s inaugural Pride Game. Field umpires were dressed in rainbow socks, goal umpires waved rainbow flags and Bulldogs’ players gave away rainbow footballs at match’s conclusion. Read more Read more Share on Messenger Up north, Brisbane’s game against Fremantle was a far less attractive, congested affair, with more wild weather (200mm of rain falling in 48 hours) keeping fans at bay. For the Lions, Jess Wuetschner was at her opportunistic best, this time with two clever, soccered goals, her wet-weather smarts showing her teammates the way. In the first quarter the Lions had persisted with a run and carry game that was ill-suited to the conditions, but with the adjustment after quarter-time, came away with a deserved win. Kate Lutkins, who finished with 18 disposals in defence, continues to be an unheralded and vital part of her team’s continued success in season two. The conclusion of the round delivered the first draw of the season – the culprit of yet more extreme weather conditions, with the Giants and Crows battling teeming rain in Blacktown as much as each other. That Adelaide managed to claw back a draw was a victory of sorts, but the result is likely as good as a loss given the team’s percentage is already the league’s worst. Not left wanting was season one’s rising star Ebony Marinoff, who by game’s end had broken both the AFL and AFLW records for most tackles in a game with 21; quite the feat given the shorter duration of AFLW games. Her desperation showed just what a premiership means to the women of AFLW, even if the Crows may now be unable to defend their inaugural crown.

The Dees had experimented with an unusual pre-game build-up, asking players to stay with the team after their trip to Perth the week before, moving directly on to the Northern Territory where they visited and participated in the club’s Next Generation indigenous academy. The players also sported a specially-designed indigenous jumper for the round, which livewire forward Aleisha Newman helped design as the club’s only indigenous AFLW player. Faced with 37 degree heat and stifling humidity, however, the Demons faded badly, while their most recognisable midfielder Daisy Pearce was tagged out of the game and had little impact on the contest. It is an indictment that the Demons, with a grand final appearance looking increasingly likely, failed to show the endeavour of the then-winless Pies, but that would be to underestimate a club spurned. Former player Kate Sheahan had, of course, made headlines earlier in the week for her critique of coach Wayne Siekman, and was roundly questioned for her right to comment as head of Richmond’s AFLW football operations. If this performance was anything to judge by, Collingwood’s players gave Siekman a rousing tick of approval. Perhaps what would have pleased him most was the form of Mo Hope; not so much for her two goals and another assist, but for her much-improved forward pressure. Christina Bernadi, meanwhile, was everywhere for her 12 disposals and one major, while Jaimee Lambert (19 disposals) finally showed Pies fans why the club gave up so much to secure her from the Bulldogs. features Australia sport Read more … we have a small favour to ask.

Topics Share on LinkedIn Australian rules football Beyond the surface, however, the Western Bulldogs had invited Ro Allen – Victoria’s commissioner for gender and sexuality – to the club to train staff on inclusive language, and a decision was made to purpose-fit the club with gender-neutral toilets for the benefit of non-binary and some trans patrons. Although some ultimately stayed away in protest of issues such as the AFL’s historic exclusion of transwomen (Hannah Mouncey most famously), these were significant and laudable steps in an unfamiliar direction.Before the game, the teams ran through a singular banner that read: “Feel proud tonight/As you go out and run/But the best victory was/When the ‘Yes’ vote was won”. Fittingly, the Dogs’ Pride guernseys were inscribed with a “Yes” on their back, while Carlton’s rainbow bled from the traditional CFC logo, symbolic perhaps of the impact its AFLW arm is having on a club that refused to go public in support of marriage equality. Hannah Scott’s emotional coming out video, posted on the social media in the lead-up, set the tone, and it was perhaps no surprise that it was the Bulldogs’ players – left in no doubt as to their club’s commitment to equality – who took the field with conviction and poise.

first_imgRick Pitino in a press conference.Louisville’s men’s basketball team went one-and-done in the ACC Tournament, losing its quarterfinal game to North Carolina Thursday afternoon. Following the contest, Cardinals’ coach Rick Pitino held a brief press conference with reporters. The first question came from Derek Brightwell, a reporter for the school’s student newspaper, the Louisville Cardinal. Brightwell asked Pitino why his team has struggled against the zone so much this season; Pitino was apparently not impressed with the question. The question starts at the 0:56 mark.  It is fairly clear why Louisville has struggled against the zone this season; they don’t shoot the ball well, which is typically a requirement for good offense when facing a zone defense. But Pitino pulled the I’m a big-time college basketball coach and you’re a student reporter that doesn’t know anything move, and he came across as a pretty big jerk in the process. The student reporter was apparently OK with it, though. Got thrashed by Pitino at the presser, but the @CardChronicle comment section was talking about me.

But Southee returned to finish off the lower order and to take 6-65 as Bangladesh was all out for 242.Ross Taylor top-scored for New Zealand with 69 and in doing so passed Stephen Fleming (8,007 runs) to become New Zealand’s leading run-scorer in one-day internationals. He had 8,026 runs in 218 ODIs by the end of his innings, at a remarkable average of 48.2.Henry Nicholls and Tom Latham, both locks for the World Cup squad, made 64 and 59 respectively as part of a complete New Zealand batting performance.Colin Munro, who was out for 8, was the only batsman to fail but is still likely to go to the World Cup as a backup batsman, though the top New Zealand batting lineup is now set with Henry Nicholls opening with Martin Guptill. Munro has only been past 50 twice in his last 20 one-day innings but the New Zealand selectors still value him for his big-hitting ability.advertisementThe all-rounders who played Wednesday all did well with the bat. Colin de Grandhomme dashed an unbeaten 37 from 15 balls in inflate New Zealand’s total and likely seal his place in the World Cup squad. Jimmy Neesham made 37 from 24 balls and Mitchell Santer 16 not out from nine.Southee has been edged out of the new ball role in the New Zealand one-day side this summer but showed with his performance Wednesday that when he hits top pace he is still potent.Trent Boult and Matt Henry will likely share the new ball at the World Cup in England with the speedster Lockie Ferguson coming on as first change.Captain Kane Williamson then has to rely on some combination of Neesham, de Grandhomme, Santner and the spinner for the other 20 overs.Coach Gary Stead has hinted New Zealand will take a specialist wicketkeeper and that role will likely go to Tim Seifert, who is also a hard-hitting top-order batsman.Fast bowling allrounder Doug Bracewell is also in contention.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Remaining West Kingston Claimants Implored to Come Forward

first_imgStory Highlights Justice Minister, Hon. Delroy Chuck, is encouraging the remaining 148 claimants who suffered damage and losses as a result of the 2010 West Kingston security operations to urgently come forward to claim their share of $21 million in compensation. Providing an update in the House of Representatives on January 23, the Minister said persons are being asked to visit the Restorative Justice centres in Tivoli Gardens and Denham Town with their banking information to ensure they get their compensation on time. Justice Minister, Hon. Delroy Chuck, is encouraging the remaining 148 claimants who suffered damage and losses as a result of the 2010 West Kingston security operations to urgently come forward to claim their share of $21 million in compensation.Providing an update in the House of Representatives on January 23, the Minister said persons are being asked to visit the Restorative Justice centres in Tivoli Gardens and Denham Town with their banking information to ensure they get their compensation on time.“Any amount not disbursed at the end of March 2018 will revert to the Consolidated Fund,” the Minister pointed out.Mr. Chuck informed that a total of 447 recommendations for monetary compensations were made, and as at January 12, 2018, the Justice Ministry paid out a total sum of $178 million to approximately 270 claimants directly and a further 29 through the Administrator General’s Department (AGD).Regarding judgement debts, the Minister noted that as of January 23, the Ministry paid out 99 per cent of the principal sums that were awarded and referred up to November 2017.“During the fiscal year, the Ministry of Finance provided the Justice Ministry with a total of $849 million, of which $705 million has already been paid. A balance of approximately $144 million remains on account to pay judgement debts,” he said.He acknowledged that the delay in completing the payments is as a result of the lack of banking details, trustee information and original formal orders on the files of persons.Mr. Chuck asserted that his Ministry intends to act in strict compliance with the recommendations of the Compensation Committee and, as such, will not be going beyond the recommendations set out in the report.“The Government has done all it can, in keeping with the recommendations and with due process, to offer compensation to persons who had been affected by the unfortunate May 2010 events in West Kingston,” the Minister said. Mr. Chuck informed that a total of 447 recommendations for monetary compensations were made, and as at January 12, 2018, the Justice Ministry paid out a total sum of $178 million to approximately 270 claimants directly and a further 29 through the Administrator General’s Department (AGD). last_img read more

Fuel Supply Review Leads Appointed

Fuel Supply Review Leads Appointed

first_img FOR BROADCAST USE Municipal Affairs Minister Zach Churchill announced today, (September 11th), the leads of the review on fuel supply management. Doug Keefe, a former provincial deputy minister and Alphonse MacNeil, a former RCMP commanding officer, will co-lead the review. Mr. Churchill says that the independent review will look into how the fuel supply management system failed and what improvements are needed to ensure that risks associated with this kind of event are limited in the future. A report with recommendations is due in November. -30- Municipal Affairs Minister Zach Churchill announced today, Sept. 11, Doug Keefe, a former provincial deputy minister and Alphonse MacNeil, a former RCMP commanding officer, have been appointed co-leads for the review on fuel supply management. “My top priority is public safety,” said Mr. Churchill. “The independent review will look into how the fuel supply management system failed and what improvements are needed to ensure that risks associated with this kind of event are limited in the future. “Mr. Keefe and Mr. MacNeil have the expertise and a proven track record to lead the review and consult with industry.” Mr. Keefe worked for the provincial government for almost 30 years in various legal and management positions, including deputy minister of Department of Justice and deputy Attorney General. He was involved in government’s response to public inquiries into the Marshall wrongful conviction and the Westray mine explosion, and part of the team that negotiated the Canada-Nova Scotia oil and gas agreement. In 2011, Mr. Keefe co-chaired the Vancouver hockey riot review. Mr. MacNeil was a senior security consultant for the 2015 PanAm ParaPan American Games and lead the review of the 2014 murders of three RCMP officers in Moncton. His positions with the RCMP included assistant commissioner for Nova Scotia, and the officer in charge of integrated security for the G8 and G20 summits and the Canadian air carrier protective program. The review will include the supply of gasoline, diesel and home heating fuel. It will seek to determine the cause of the recent gas shortage, identify improvements in communications between industry, government and the public and ensure first responders, utilities and telecommunication providers are able to deliver services to Nova Scotians without interruption. Part of the review will be a comprehensive description of Nova Scotia’s fuel supply chain and the emergency plans of first responders related to fuel shortage. “The review is an investment in public safety and peace of mind for Nova Scotians,” said Mr. Churchill. “It will help us take the necessary steps to protect Nova Scotians in the event of a disruption in fuel supply.” A report with recommendations is due in November.last_img read more

Sheena Bora case HC allows Peter to get admitted in hospital

first_imgMumbai: The Bombay High Court Monday allowed former media baron Peter Mukerjea, who is facing trial in the Sheena Bora murder case, to get admitted in a private hospital for post-operative cardiac rehabilitation sessions. Justice Revati Mohite Dere directed authorities of the Arthur Road prison, where Mukerjea has been lodged since his arrest in 2015, to shift him in Criticare hospital for a period of 15 days.

While allowing Mukerjea’s plea, the high court directed jail authorities to file a report on his condition on July 12. Mukerjea has been in jail since November 2015 for his alleged involvement in killing Sheena Bora, daughter of his estranged wife Indrani Mukerjea who is the prime accused in the case.

Brock recognizes profs for outstanding teaching at Convocation

Brock recognizes profs for outstanding teaching at Convocation

First-rate teaching and mentoring that goes above and beyond the norm is the cornerstone of Brock’s reputation for excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. And at this year’s Spring Convocation taking place from June 11 to 15, the University will pay tribute to six faculty members for their exceptional contributions to teaching.“The entire Brock community acknowledges and thanks these award-winning professors,” says Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic.“The diversity and scope of their interests, approaches and styles makes it clear that for Brock faculty, teaching happens everywhere, be it the classroom, the lab or on a field trip, or during conversations in offices and even over coffee. We are rightly proud of how our teachers mix traditional and innovative approaches to teaching and learning.”The Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching is awarded to individuals chosen by selection committees of Faculty members, staff and students from the Faculties of Applied Health Sciences, Education, Humanities, Mathematics and Science, Social Sciences, and the Goodman School of Business. Nominees must have a reputation for superior teaching and be recognized for this quality by students and colleagues.This year’s recipients are:Professor Michael Carter, Department of Classics, Faculty of HumanitiesProfessor Mike Carter’s students describe his teaching as “legendary.”Michael CarterHe teaches diverse subjects from the uses of the subjunctive case and ablative absolutes in Latin, to ancient sport and gladiatorial combat with “sharp weapons,” delivering them in an upbeat, dramatic and even choreographed manner. His energy, enthusiasm and humour have been hallmarks of his teaching since he arrived at Brock in 2001.Professor Carter has taught classes both large and small – language courses, surveys, and seminars on the Histories of Early and Classical Greece, and the Roman Republic and Empire. Thorough preparation and organization, an encyclopedic knowledge of the subject matter and a genuine passion for his field shine through in his teaching.Professor Carter has an innate ability to incorporate his research into his teaching in an accessible manner, something his students and colleagues never fail to remark on. His use of space in the classroom creates an excellent linkage between student and teacher, creating an environment of intellectual exchange rather than a “top-down” lecture.Professor Carter’s philosophy of teaching encourages students to be active participants in the discussion, rather than passive recipients. His student-centered approach to reconstructing Roman history and his boundless enthusiasm in the classroom are greatly valued by undergraduate and graduate students who consistently rank him as a top professor, and describe his classes as among their most stimulating and memorable experiences at Brock.Not surprising – as he himself says about teaching: “I could not imagine my life without it. For me, teaching is pure joy.”Professor David Hutchison, Department of Teacher Education, Faculty of EducationThroughout his 14 years at Brock University, Professor David Hutchison has paralleled a commitment to excellence in teaching with a commitment to excellence in educational leadership.David HutchisonHis diverse teaching practices include large-group plenary courses delivered to hundreds of first-year undergraduate students, experiential courses in the teacher education program, and scholarly discussion-based courses in the masters and doctoral programs. In 2010, Professor Hutchison developed and taught a new teacher education course focused on education for social change.The comments from Professor Hutchison’s 2012-13 teaching evaluations point to a professor who promotes in teacher education students a passion for social studies, his subject specialty. As one student writes, he “makes social studies come alive with active learning and discussions that are very engaging. As a history major, I have high expectations and they were very much met by David.”June, 2013 marks the end of Professor Hutchison’s four-year term of Chair of the Department of Teacher Education. Over the last four years, he has led a number of successful new initiatives in Brock’s teacher education program. These include a major expansion of the teacher education program’s optional course offerings which this year attracted 400 enrolments and included topics as wide-ranging as kindergarten teaching, occasional teaching, international teaching and coaching school athletes.Professor Hutchison’s commitment to students extends beyond his formal teaching. For 11 years, he has served as faculty advisor to the St. Catharines Teacher Candidate Liaison Council, offering advise and guidance in support of the Council’s social and charity initiatives.Professor Marilyn Cottrell, Department of Economics, Faculty of Social SciencesProfessor Marilyn Cottrell’s enthusiasm for economics is contagious. Due to her stimulating approach to teaching, many students become fascinated with economics. Students report that she has a “unique, effective and interactive way of getting through to students.”Marilyn CottrellProfessor Cottrell’s attention to detail ensures that students arrive in upper year courses ready to succeed. She generously makes herself available to answer student questions about her courses, and her openness and patience with students is remarkable. She not only attempts to ensure that every student has the opportunity to excel in her courses, but also mentors students regarding careers in economics.Professor Cottrell was recognized by the Council of Ontario Universities for developing a Learning Object for principles of macroeconomics. Her work on this initiative also received much acclaim in the United States. She was chosen by a juried panel to present the details of her work at successive meetings of the American Economic Association.This quote from a student captures the sentiment of many: “I believe that Marilyn’s motivation, enthusiasm, and devotion to teaching and to the well-being of her students is exceptional. My Brock experience was enhanced by the opportunities afforded to me by Marilyn’s involvement.”Professor Cottrell has received the Award for Part-time Instructors and Teaching Assistants (1998), the “Making a Difference” Award (2003), the Council of Ontario Universities Award for Excellence in Teaching with Technology (2006); the Brock University Students’ Union Teaching Award (2007), and the Don Ursino Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Large Classes (2009).Professor Alan Castle, Department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Mathematics and ScienceProfessor Alan Castle, a geneticist, joined Brock’s Department of Biological Sciences in 1987 and since that time has made many contributions to the department in teaching, research and administration. He is an exceptional teacher and has had an extremely strong and consistent record of teaching excellence for more than 25 years.Alan CastleProfessor Castle effectively communicates with and engages students from diverse backgrounds in the learning process. He teaches both of his Department’s Year 1 courses (1F25 and 1F90), which have the highest enrolments in the Department. Additionally, he has also taught four additional undergraduate courses as well as four graduate courses.Professor Castle is a popular and well-respected instructor and his student evaluations support this. Many students also refer to him as the best teacher they’d ever had.Further evidence of Professor Castle’s versatility in teaching students at all levels is demonstrated by his research activity. From 2007 to 2012, he supervised four PhD students, five MSc students and 23 undergraduate honours students, nearly all of whom have now graduated.To quote one of Professor Castle’s nominators and a long-time colleague, “The students love and respect Alan and actively seek to enrol in courses he is teaching regardless of their interest in the topic. He captures their imagination from first year through to fourth year and in graduate courses as well. He connects with students, understands the issues they face in learning and is a calm, strong and enthusiastic guiding hand that helps them get the most of their program.”Professor Cheri Bradish, Department of Sports Management, Faculty of Applied Health SciencesProfessor Cheri Bradish was the first faculty member appointed to the Department of Sport Management at Brock in 1997. She has not only been instrumental in helping to build the program, but also in raising its reputation both nationally and internationally.Cheri BradishOne of the most significant contributions that Professor Bradish has made in her teaching is to provide students with opportunities to apply knowledge and skills within the broader community. For example, as part of her course “Sport and Social Responsibility,” she has partnered with leading organizations such as Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, Right to Play and Hockey for the Homeless to create real-world giving projects for her students.Not only has Professor Bradish provided opportunities for students to apply their skills within the community, but she has also brought the community to Brock.By staying connected with alumni and being current in the field, she has hosted several inspirational and influential professionals on campus who have shared their experiences with current Sport Management majors. Examples include journalist Stephen Brunt, Toronto Blue Jays Assistant Manager Andrew Tinnish, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds General Manager Kyle Dubas and Canadian Olympic Committee Manager of Commercial Rights and Marketing Partnerships Erin Mathany.As outlined in a letter of support from one of her students: “Words cannot express how amazing Professor Bradish is as a teacher … every day she is going above and beyond to satisfy her students and to make them happy, and without a doubt she makes it work! Her professional mannerism and strive for excellence for both herself and her students is truly inspirational.Professor Anamitra Shome, Department of Accounting, Goodman School of BusinessProfessor Anamitra Shome joined Brock University in 1997 as a lecturer in the Department of Accounting and Finance. As a teacher, he is a kind and unselfish individual who values his role as a teacher and works to kindle a spark of lifelong learning in his students.Anamitra ShomeProfessor Shome has published several articles pertaining to internal audits, an important topic in light of recent accounting scandals that have changed the field of accounting and pushed auditing to the forefront.Professor Shome developed a framework to help him achieve his teaching goal called the “3-E Framework” – Enthusiasm, Excitement and Excellence. He actively seeks student criticisms, feedback and suggestions to ensure that he is providing quality learning in the classroom.One of his students submitted the following comment about his teaching, acknowledging a quote coined by Shome: “Such is life – we come, we have to go. The important thing is to be good people in between the coming and going.”Professor Shome received his MBA from Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, NS (1992), and his PhD in Business Administration, with a major in Accounting from Concordia University, Montreal, PQ (1998). He became a tenure-track faculty member at Brock in 1998, an associate professor in 2002, and received his CGA designation in 2009.From 1994-97, Shome held various lecturer positions at Concordia University. From 1980-89, until he returned to school, he held a position as an Officer, Foreign Exchange, Punjab and Sind Bank, Intl, Banking Divisions, in Calcutta and New Delhi, India. read more

LAfssaps alerte contre un produit vendu sur internet pour lIVG

first_imgL’Afssaps alerte contre un produit vendu sur internet pour l’IVGLundi, les autorités sanitaires ont mis en garde contre l’utilisation d’un produit indiqué pour l’interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG) et vendu sur Internet sous le nom de MTP KIT. Le médicament ne dispose d’aucune autorisation de mise sur le marché et présente une “composition inadaptée”.Si les autorités sanitaires tirent régulièrement la sonnette d’alarme sur les médicaments vendus sur Internet, c’est une nouvelle mise en garde qu’ont communiquée lundi l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé (Afssaps) et la Direction générale de la santé (DGS). L’alerte concerne un médicament vendu sur plusieurs sites Internet pour l’interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG) et qui présente des “risques graves pour la santé”. Connu sous le nom de MTP KIT, le produit est commercialisé par la société CIPLA Limited, notamment sur le site Eurodrugstore.eu dans la rubrique “birth control”.À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?”Il s’agit d’un médicament illicite qui ne dispose d’aucune autorisation de mise sur le marché (AMM), ni d’autorisation d’importation sur le territoire français”, ont indiqué les deux autorités dans un communiqué. Elles précisent également : “Les modalités d’emploi, notamment le mode d’administration du produit, exposent la femme qui l’utiliserait à un réel danger (échec de l’avortement, hémorragie, infection grave)”. En effet, le MTP KIT est constitué de mifépristone (plus connu sous le nom de RU 486) administré par voie orale et misoprostol administré par voie vaginale. Une composition jugée “inadaptée” suite aux analyses réalisées par les laboratoires de l’Afssaps.   Par ailleurs, l’Agence sanitaire rappelle qu’en France “une grande attention est apportée au droit d’accès à l’IVG pour toutes les femmes qui souhaitent y recourir et à la qualité de sa pratique, quel que soit le lieu de sa réalisation”. Dans son communiqué, elle invite ainsi toute personne qui recherche des informations sur le sujet à se rendre sur le dossier-guide IVG ou sur choisirsacontraception.fr (lien non disponible) pour obtenir des réponses sur la contraception.  Le 19 septembre 2011 à 15:22 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

38 deficient rainfall in Tgana says IMD farmers hopeful

first_imgHyderabad: Telangana has witnessed a 38 per cent deficiency in rainfall this season but the state agriculture department is hopeful that the farm sector may not face a major problem in view of the forecast of normal rainfall in August and September. According to the Meteorological Centre of IMD here, the state received 199 mm of rainfall cumulatively between June 1 and July 25 against the normal rainfall of 318.5 mm, a shortfall of 38 per cent. State principal secretary (Agriculture) C Parthasarathi said the condition of rainfed crops has been good so far. Also Read – Two Urban forest parks inaugurated in Hyderabad Advertise With Us “Since the forecast is good, there may not be much of a problem for rainfed crops,” he told PTI here. Sowings for rainfed crops were on and paddy nurseries were being raised, he said. However, heavy rainfall is needed for paddy, he said.

Everything is good now… There is no symptom of any problem as of now,” he said. IMD’s Met Centre official Raja Rao said the forecast of rainfall during August and September is normal. “The forecast for August, September is normal… The loss would be made up. But, we cannot say the whole 38 per cent deficiency would be made up,” he told PTI. The southwest monsoon had hit Telangana on June 21 against the normal onset date of June 5, a delay of 16 days. However, it had been sluggish in its impact. Advertise With Us Telangana and also Andhra Pradesh receive good amount of rainfall due to the formation of low-pressure areas and depressions in the Bay of Bengal, he said. But, a low pressure formed in June-end took a north-westerly direction and moved towards Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, he said.

Trump Vetoes Congressional Effort To Limit Border Wall Funding

Trump Vetoes Congressional Effort To Limit Border Wall Funding

first_imgEvan Vucci/APPresident Donald Trump speaks about border security in the Oval Office of the White House, Friday, March 15, 2019, in Washington. Trump issued the first veto of his presidency, overruling Congress to protect his emergency declaration for border wall funding.President Trump used his veto pen for the first time Friday, after Congress tried to reverse his national emergency declaration and rein in spending on a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.Congressional critics do not appear to have the votes to override Trump’s veto. So, as a practical matter, the administration can continue to spend billions of dollars more on border barriers than lawmakers authorized, unless and until the courts intervene.“Today I am vetoing this resolution,” Trump said, flanked by law enforcement officials at an Oval Office event. “Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it.”Trump had telegraphed his plan to proceed with additional wall spending on Thursday, minutes after the Senate voted 59-41 to block it. Twelve Republican senators joined Democrats in rejecting the president’s emergency declaration.“I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country,” Trump tweeted. “I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!”And Friday afternoon Trump again thanked those GOP senators who had voted to allow his emergency declaration to go forward. “This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country,” the president tweeted. “Watch, when you get back to your State, they will LOVE you more than ever before!”Trump declared a national emergency last month, after Congress authorized only $1.3 billion in border wall funding, far short of the $5.7 billion Trump had asked for. The emergency declaration allows the president to redirect funds from other accounts such as military construction to the Southern border wall.Republican senators who bucked the president said they did so to preserve congressional control over the government’s purse strings.“We had a war against a king in the American revolution,” said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. “This would be the first time that a president has ever asked for a certain amount of money from Congress, Congress has refused to provide it, and then the president has declared a national emergency under the 1976 act and said, ‘I’m going to spend the money anyway.’”Alexander added that he shares the president’s goal of border security, but warned allowing Trump to redirect money without authorization could set a dangerous precedent.Recent months have seen a surge in unauthorized crossings of the U.S. border with Mexico. Last month, roughly 76,000 people tried, including 43,000 children and family members, many fleeing violence and poverty in Central America. The large numbers have put a strain on immigration enforcement, although critics say a wall would do little to discourage the crossings since many of those apprehended at the border turn themselves in voluntarily.The border wall project still faces a variety of legal challenges, and despite Trump’s veto, House and Senate votes against the emergency declaration could carry some weight in the courts.Trump insists he’s on solid legal ground, however.“The legal scholars all say it’s totally constitutional,” Trump said during a photo op Thursday in the Oval Office.On Friday, Attorney General William Barr also said his emergency order was “clearly authorized under the law.”Copyright 2019 NPR.
