FOOD SAFETY SCAN: FSIS research priorities, turtle-linked Salmonella outbreaks

first_imgDec 7, 2012FSIS releases food safety research prioritiesThe US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) yesterday unveiled a list of research priorities for researchers who are pursuing topics related to the foods that the agency regulates. In a statement, the FSIS said that although it doesn’t fund research itself, the list could provide guidance to investigators applying for grants from other funders, such as outside groups and the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Elizabeth Hagen, MD, the USDA’s undersecretary for food safety, said in the statement that scientific findings help the agency understand foodborne illnesses and emerging trends. “External research is critical to our public health mission and ultimately serves as another tool at our disposal to protect the food supply for over 300 million Americans,” she said. The research priority list contains 22 items, which address topics such as developing new technologies to assist with detection and pathogen characterization. This is the second year that FSIS has identified a list of official research priorities.Dec 6 FSIS press releaseFSIS food safety research prioritiesCases in turtle-linked Salmonella outbreaks rise to 248Twenty-nine more patients have been infected in six Salmonella outbreaks linked to pet turtles, pushing the number of cases to 248, according to an update yesterday from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The number of affected states remained the same, at 34. So far 41 patients have been hospitalized, an increase of 5 from the CDC’s last update on the outbreaks on Oct 19. No deaths have been reported, and the latest illness-onset date was Nov 11. The update yesterday is the CDC’s seventh since it first announced the outbreaks on Mar 26. The agency said 68% of the patients are children younger than 10 and about half of the patients are of Hispanic ethnicity. Background information for consumers on the link between reptiles and Salmonella is now available in Spanish, the CDC said. The outbreaks involve Salmonella Sandiego, Ponoma, and Poona strains. The Food and Drug Administration has banned the sale and distribution of small turtles as pets since 1975. About a third of the patients, however, purchased the turtles from street vendors, and 17% bought them from pet stores.Dec 6 CDC outbreak updatelast_img read more

Bar Council cautions against ‘DIY litigants’

first_imgThe government’s ‘crude and brutal’ legal aid cuts will trigger a surge in ‘DIY litigants’ that risks ‘gridlock’ in the courts, the Bar Council has warned. Responding to the government’s consultation on legal aid, which closes today, the bar’s representative body said the cuts, which are aimed at saving £350 million, could end up costing rather than saving tax payers’ money, with a devastating effect on access to justice. It said that a wholesale withdrawal of legal aid in some practice areas means there is almost certain to be a significant increase in ‘litigants in person’ as more people have to go to court alone to fight their case. Chairman of the Family Law Bar Association Stephen Cobb QC, who led the Bar Council’s response, said: ‘We fear these attempted cuts, being so crude and brutal, will cost more than they save. ‘They will trigger a surge in DIY litigants which risks gridlock in the courts, as they struggle to get justice.’ Cobb said the proposals did not ‘add up’ and had not been properly impact-assessed. Their effect on the administration of justice, the running of the courts, and the burden on other government departments, could cost the government the same amount it was seeking to save. Cobb said the bar understands that the government needs to save money and supports the drive to reduce waste and bureaucracy, but wants to ensure that where cuts are made, access to justice does not suffer. He warned that the government’s proposals would lead to host of problems: those suffering serious psychological abuse may be left unrepresented in private law family proceedings; parents, without representation, could face the removal of their children into care; and consumers suffering at the hands of negligent corporate entities may have to fund their own claims. Cobb said the cuts would damage the future quality and diversity of the legal profession, as young barristers, already burdened with the debts of their education, would be forced to leave publicly funded practice, as it did not offer a financially viable career path. Cobb added that the proposals were contrary to the regulatory objectives underpinning the recent legal services reforms, not least the objective of improving access to justice. The bar’s response is the culmination of a forensic three-month scrutiny of the green paper. Responding to the consultation on reform of the costs of civil litigation, the Bar Council said that litigation costs needed to be reduced, but warned that significant threats to access to justice must be addressed, and one size cannot fit all in litigation. The bar agreed that claimants should have a stake in the litigation they choose to bring, but said it should not be at the expense of access to justice. Christopher Hancock QC, chairman of the Commercial Bar Association, said: ‘We accept that methods to reduce costs in the litigation process which are disproportionate must be found. ‘We also broadly welcome the proposals for large disputes, where there are no issues regarding funding or access to justice.’ But he added: ‘We are concerned that in many cases these proposals will lead to acute problems for litigants seeking access to justice. ‘The combination of cuts to legal aid and plans which will impact severely on funding of smaller cases must not be allowed to exclude whole categories of parties from the ability to seek legal redress.’last_img read more

Mentor Moves to 3-1; Tops the Mustangs in Strongsville 42-27

first_imgBy Dave AlligoodSTRONGSVILLE, OHIO – The Mentor Cardinals opened Greater Cleveland Conference league play with a decisive 42-27 win over the Strongsville Mustangs Friday night at Pat Catan Stadium.Strongsville opened the game with a record-setting play in the opening seconds.  After a botched return followed by an offensive penalty pinned the Mustangs on their one-yard line, junior QB Jony Major found a sprinting Nick Adams behind the Cardinal’s defense.The junior receiver outpaced the defenders for a 99-yard touchdown reception, the longest play in school history.  The PAT gave the Mustangs their only lead of the night at 7-0.For the rest of the half, Mentor’s three senior offensive leaders—Tadas Tatarunas, Logan Shea, and Chris Edmond—led the Cardinals to 21 first half points for a 21-6 lead at the midpoint.On Mentor’s opening drive, QB Tatarunas showed his elusiveness in avoiding a sack to complete a downfield pass to get Mentor out of trouble.  After moving ball to the 2-yard line, running back Edmond punched through for the Cardinal’s first score.  The game was tied at 7-7 with the PAT.Mentor’s defense created havoc for the Mustang offense, who could not get any momentum going.  Led by defensive standouts Dan Garcar and Noah Potter, the Cardinal D harassed the Mustangs on the edge and stuffed them up the middle.Potter was particularly busy, creating match-up nightmares for Strongsville’s O line.  Potter, who is getting a lot of looks from Big 10 and MAC programs, said, “I just try to dominate every play.  I think I did that most of the game.  A couple of plays got away from me.  I just tried to do my best and help my teammates.  That’s my job.”Potter finished with multiple QB hurries and tackles for loss.  And when he could not get to the QB, he demanded the O line’s attention enough to allow others to get through.Edmond scored two more touchdowns in the first half.  The last one came on Mentor’s first drive of the second quarter.  Showing their ability to grind out yardage and chew up the clock, the Cardinals went 85 yards in 14 plays, taking nearly four minutes off the clock.  Edmond capped the drive with a one-yard run.For Strongsville, halftime could not come soon enough as they floundered time and again on offense, and were battered and slow to react on defense.Mentor received the second-half kickoff and did not miss a beat as Tatarunas used a combination of passes and a well-timed keeper to put the Cardinals at Strongsville’s one-yard line, where Edmond again punched it in for his fourth touchdown.Strongsville would answer with their own impressive drive, including a key fourth-down conversion, and would cap it with a 16-yard touchdown pass from Major to junior wideout Joe Gillette.  The PAT was no good, and the score was Mentor 28-13 at the 7:12 mark of the third quarter.At this point, it appeared Mentor would completely run away with the game.Mentor would again rely on their big three and finish with a 13-yard touchdown pass from Tatarunas to Shea.  With the successful PAT, Mentor led 35-13 midway through the third quarter.Strongsville suffered a nightmarish possession as they were hit with multiple offensive penalties and then exacerbated their drive with a poor exchange resulting in Mentor gaining possession at Strongsville’s five-yard line.Two plays later, Tatarunas scored on a keeper as the Mustang D focused on Edmond.  The PAT gave Mentor a 42-13 lead at the end of the third quarter, and the rout appeared to be in hand.Strongsville refused to give up and scored on their next drive junior back Taylor Griffin punched it in from the one-yard line.  Strongsville attempted a two-point conversion but Major was stopped short.  Mentor’s lead was cut to 42-19 early in the fourth.Strongsville then successfully executed an onside kick and used the momentum to score on a beautiful pass from Major to Joe Gillette for his second score of the game.  This time the two-point conversion was good for a 42-27 Mentor lead.Mentor would give Strongsville another opportunity on their next drive.  On third-and-eleven, Tatarunas passed directly to Strongsville defender Jake Poyle who returned the ball to Mentor’s 48-yard line.Unable to muster any offense, Strongsville turned the ball over on downs with 3:47 left in the game.Mentor was then able to convert two big third-down plays and run out the clock for the final score of 42-27.Mentor coach Steve Trivisonno was pleased with the offensive effort throughout the game.  “We did a nice job tonight.  We went empty set and moved guys around.  It was a good job offensively.”Trivisonno also commented on his team’s defensive inconsistency: “We were [disruptive].  We just gave up too many big plays.  Can’t give up deep passes.”With the win, Mentor improves to 3-1 (1-0 in GCC play) and Strongsville drops to 2-2 (0-1 in the GCC).Mentor hosts Brunswick next week in GCC play, while Strongsville continues league play on the road with a tough matchup at Solon.Player of the Game:  Mentor senior running back Chris Edmond.  On a night that featured big games from QB Tatarunas (over 250 yards passing) and wideout Logan Shea (10 receptions for nearly 150 yards), Edmond was the steady rock that kept the Cardinals offense churning out yards and eating up minutes on the clock in the second half.  Even the dominant performance by junior end Noah Potter was overshadowed by Edmond’s 120 yards and four rushing touchdowns.

Governor Says ‘We Are Not Panicked’ After Major Spike In Positive COVID Cases

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享In a Sunday evening press conference, Governor Mike Dunleavy along with the state’s chief medical officer Dr. Anne Zink, Dr. Michael Bernstein of Providence Alaska and Anchorage Health Department director Natasha Pineda addressed Alaskans following the largest single day of positive cases of COVID-19 in the state. Dr. Zink said it is up to individual Alaskans to stop the spread of COVID-19 by maintaining social distancing guidlines, wearing a mask, washing hands and avoiding large gatherings. She drove home the point by stating that the most important thing for residents to do is stay home if they feel sick. Zink: “We are in a very different place than when this began with more testing, hospital capacity, more knowledge, but we are a long way from being done. If we all do a little, together we can do a lot.” Dunleavy: “We don’t see this as any reason to get overly concerned, We said we’re going to watch this every day, which we’re doing. We are not panicked” Twenty-seven confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported Sunday by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, making it the state’s highest daily increase since the pandemic began. Dr. Zink took to social media after the press conference to remind Alaskans “Open” never meant “over”.Dr. Zink: “8 of the 27 are from the Kenai Peninsula. Many of the cases are still under investigation but large social gatherings appear to be linking some of these cases.” The Peninsula also saw two more positive cases on Saturday, Homer (1) and Kenai Peninsula Borough (1). The governor was asked during Sunday’s press conference if there are plans to reinstate the 14-day quarantine for out of state travelers past the June 5 deadline. Dunleavy: “Revisions to the 14-day quarantine for outside travelers will not be adjusted at this time but officials will continue to have discussions.”last_img read more
