Unsurprisingly Surprising Swine Flu Battle Continues

first_imgThe virus causing the swine flu pandemic has spread to turkeys in Chile, slowed its spread in people in the Southern Hemisphere and in the United Kingdom, and is thriving in human populations in Alaska, Maine, and Japan. Drug companies are having difficulty growing the influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus, which means that a vaccine against the disease will be in short supply this fall. So the novel H1N1 virus is behaving just as unpredictably as scientists predicted it would, said U.S. health officials at a press briefing today. “The behavior of this virus is still uncertain,” said Jesse Goodman, deputy commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, repeating what has become this pandemic’s mantra. Having a vaccine supply to protect people from the virus—which is no more virulent than seasonal flu but, in an unusual twist, mainly causes severe disease in younger people—remains the most pressing issue. At this point, the U.S. government expects manufacturers to deliver 45 million to 52 million doses of the vaccine by mid-October, said Jay Butler, head of the H1N1 task force for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is only about one-third of the amount that CDC earlier expected would be ready by then, although Butler stressed that more should become available each week, adding up to 195 million doses by the end of the year. “Everybody is doing the best they can to get as much vaccine available as soon as possible,” said Butler, “so the numbers can be subject to change.”Bill Hall, a spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services, told ScienceInsider that four of the five companies it contracted to make the vaccine have taken “longer than expected” to make the viral antigen needed for the final product. In addition to growth problems with the virus, Hall noted that one vaccine maker is still making seasonal flu vaccine and has yet to switch over to production of the novel H1N1 product. Another vaccine maker, based in Australia, has devoted its initial supply to that country, which is in the winter season and combating its own substantial outbreak. There also have been delays in producing “potency reagents” that are used to test the vaccine, he said.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(*)The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices last month issued recommendations on how to prioritize distribution of the vaccine if shortages exist, and those were published today in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.One aspect to the pandemic has, so far, gone as planned: clinical trials of the new vaccines. The U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is coordinating five different trials at eight different sites around the country, which are testing whether two doses of the vaccine will be necessary to stimulate a robust immune response. “We expect first dose data somewhere around mid-September, if all goes well—and things seem to be going well—second dose data somewhere around mid-October,” said NIAID Director Anthony Fauci at the press conference. “There are no red flags regarding safety,” Fauci added. Meanwhile, Chile reported yesterday that the virus had infected two flocks of turkeys near Santiago. This is the first report of the virus in birds, although pig herds in several countries have been infected, presumably by human-to-swine transmission. “Influenza viruses are always doing unpredictable and surprising things, although isolation of this virus from turkeys may not be that surprising, because the swine characteristics of this virus—this may sound funny to say—can have the capacity to infect turkeys,” said CDC’s Butler. Indeed, other swine influenzas have infected turkeys. One concern is that turkeys may become co-infected with the pandemic virus and other strains, leading to a new, more virulent virus that infects humans, but Butler said that this had never been observed to date.Although uncertainties certainly will remain, Butler stressed that the U.S. government was doing everything it could to limit the harm caused by the virus. “We can’t stop the tide of flu any more than we can turn a hurricane in its course or stop the earth shaking during an earthquake, but we can mitigate the effects and help prevent people from becoming severely ill by preparing well and acting effectively,” he said.last_img read more

Scott Brown sees red for celebration after scoring late winner for Celtic

Supporters had come on to the pitch, which we don’t want to see. I understand the emotion of it all. But I didn’t see so much of it. I had to reorganise very quickly because we were down to 10 men.”A disappointed Clarke said his side were hard done by with the late defeat.

New Invincibles? Genius Messi takes Barca to brink of glory

first_imgPrimera División The new Invincibles? Messi genius takes Barcelona to brink of La Liga glory Ben Hayward Last updated 1 year ago 01:26 5/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(9) Lionel Messi Barcelona Getty Images Primera División Barcelona v Atlético Madrid Barcelona Atlético Madrid Lionel Messi Opinion The Blaugrana are 27 games unbeaten now in the Primera Division and moved a step closer to the title thanks to the Argentine’s fantastic free-kick It may be the moment that has won La Liga for Barcelona. Lionel Messi stepped up to fire home from a set piece for the third game in a row and ruin all of Diego Simeone’s best-laid defensive plans. There is no stopping the astonishing Argentine – and there may be no way to halt this Blaugrana side, either.Messi’s free-kick was a thing of beauty. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner curled the ball up and over the wall and into Jan Oblak’s far-left corner. There was nothing the Slovenian goalkeeper could do.And even though that may be Messi’s favourite spot when it comes to free-kicks, lately his set pieces have been even more unpredictable: against Girona last weekend, he fired one under the wall and into the bottom right corner; at Las Palmas on Thursday he hit the top corner on the same side. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp The goal was Messi’s 600th in an incredible career and it was an important one, too. Atletico arrived at Camp Nou just five points behind Barca in the race for La Liga and a win would have given the Rojiblancos real hope of claiming the title.But Barca dominated possession and created most of the danger with Messi in monster mode and Philippe Coutinho linking up effectively in midfield. Still, however, it needed the Argentine’s divine intervention to seal a vital victory.Atletico thought they had levelled late in the game when Kavin Gameiro blasted home from close range, but Diego Costa had been in a marginally offside position when he headed on to the French forward.That would have set up a frantic finale, but Barca are made of stern stuff and Sunday’s success means it is 21 wins and six draws for Ernesto Valverde’s side in La Liga this term.With an eight-point lead over Atleti now with 11 fixtures remaining, the Blaugrana are surely now in control in the Primera Division. Sunday’s win was a significant step towards the title and there was a tangible sense of relief among the home fans as the final whistle went.Barcelona Atletico scoreNow Barca will look to see out the rest of the league season, but there is also the opportunity to finish the campaign with an unprecedented unbeaten run across the 38-game competition.Valverde’s side still have to travel to Malaga, Sevilla, Celta, Deportivo La Coruna and Levante in La Liga, with home games against Athletic Club, Leganes, Valencia, Villarreal, Real Madrid and Real Sociedad to come.Some tough fixtures, but many of the most difficult hurdles have already been overcome and with just 13 goals conceded in the Primera Division, plus plenty of Messi magic on tap, Barca look primed to emulate Arsenal’s achievement of 2003-04 and go the entire season unbeaten.The new Invincibles? Messi and Barca are getting closer to another amazing feat. Don’t best against them pulling it off.last_img read more

Trump invited Iran Foreign Minister to White House

first_imgWashington DC: US President Donald Trump invited Iran’s foreign minister to the White House last month at the height of tensions between the two countries, a magazine reports. The invitation, extended by Senator Rand Paul with permission from the president, was turned down for now, The New Yorker reported Friday. The minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said it was up to Tehran to decide on accepting it. Neither the White House nor the State Department responded to AFP requests for comment on the report, which quoted US and Iranian sources and what the magazine called a well-placed diplomat. Zarif told the magazine he would not want a White House meeting that yielded just a photo op and a two page statement afterwards, The New Yorker said. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USTrump has said publicly several times that he is willing to hold talks with the Iranians even as he lambasts Tehran as a corrupt, incompetent and dangerous regime that is a threat to regional security and US interests. Last year Trump pulled the US out of an international accord designed to curb Iran’s nuclear program, and has reimposed sanctions on Iran — and even slapped them on Zarif this week — in an effort to force it to renegotiate the agreement. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsRand had been working for weeks on setting up a meeting with Zarif and on July 15, conferred with him in New York, passing on an invitation from Trump for him to come to the White House, the magazine said. At the one hour meeting with Rand, Zarif suggested ways to end the nuclear impasse and address Trump’s concerns, The New Yorker said. Tensions soared in the Gulf in June and July amid attacks on oil tankers, Iran’s downing of an unmanned US surveillance drone and after the US said it had downed an Iranian drone.last_img read more

Mine protected vehicles for CRPF convoys in Kashmir: DG

first_imgNew Delhi: The CRPF will procure a new fleet of mine protected vehicles (MPVs) and small 30-seater buses to ensure safety of its troop convoys in the Kashmir Valley, the chief of the force has said. The paramilitary has also decided to enhance the number of its bomb detection and disposal squads (BDDS) for its about 65 battalions based in the Kashmir Valley for anti-terror and law and order duties. These new measures have been chalked out by the force in the aftermath of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack in which 40 personnel travelling in a bus, part of a convoy from Jammu to Srinagar, were killed by a suicide bomber as he exploded a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (IED). Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”We are enhancing our counter-IED capabilities in Kashmir. We are procuring and sending more MPVs and are bullet-proofing force buses. As it is difficult to armour large buses, we are looking at procuring small 30-seater buses that can be better armour plated,” CRPF Director General (DG) R R Bhatnagar said. The force uses MPVs for limited troop movements in the anti-Naxal operations theatre and some of them are being used in Jammu and Kashmir too.last_img read more

Recent clashes in eastern DR Congo draw concern from Security Council

The Council stressed that the clashes that broke out in North Kivu on 28 August between the country’s armed forces (FARDC) and the National Congress for People’s Defense, known by its French acronym CNDP, are a violation of the Actes d’Engagement signed by both parties earlier this year.“The Members of the Council regretted the failure by the signatories to respect and implement their commitments effectively and in good faith,” according to the statement read out to the press by Ambassador Michel Kafando of Burkina Faso, which holds the rotating presidency of the Council for September.In the January agreement, the CNDP and other armed groups in North and South Kivu provinces had undertaken to observe a complete and immediate ceasefire, begin the withdrawal of their forces, and to abide strictly by the rules of international humanitarian and human rights law.“Council members urged the CNDP to immediately cease its offensive operations and took note of a letter from that group today that announces the immediate and unilateral withdrawal of its troops,” added the statement, which followed a closed-door briefing on the latest developments by Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet.The security situation in the area was “relatively calm” today, except for some minor skirmishes in North Kivu, according to the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC (MONUC), which yesterday took action in several areas of North and South Kivu to hold back armed groups and protect civilians caught in their crossfire. 12 September 2008The Security Council today voiced serious concern at the recent fighting between Government forces and rebel groups in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), some of the worst violence since the signing of a January peace deal. read more

The UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) set up a Monitoring Committee to record all incidents, behaviour, actions and decisions that block the peace process and the work of UNOCI and other international actors involved in seeking to restore peace to the West African country, which was split by civil war in 2002 into a Government-controlled south and a rebel-held north.“The Committee will propose concrete measures to be taken, including the imposition of immediate targeted sanctions,” Simon Munzu, the head of UNOCI’s Human Rights Division and chair of the Committee, told a news conference in Abidjan, the country’s commercial capital, calling on Ivorians to avoid actions obstructing the march towards a definitive resolution to the crisis, “which has lasted far too long.”Last month’s much delayed presidential elections were meant to be the culminating point of these efforts, but the poll generated a new crisis when the Constitutional Council threw out the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) proclamation of Mr. Ouattara as victor, citing irregularities in his northern base, and awarded the election to Mr. Gbagbo.The UN Security Council, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU) and the European Union (EU), as well as many individual countries, have all recognized Mr. Ouattara as the rightful victor of the 28 November run-off election.Last Wednesday the Council reiterated its readiness “to impose targeted measures against persons who attempt to threaten the peace process, obstruct the work of UNOCI and other international actors, or commit serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.”Mr. Munzu said the Committee will also take into account serious violations of human rights, including equal access to state media for everyone, and incitement to hatred and violence, noting that the Council denounced the suspension of non-governmental media in Côte d’Ivoire. Laying out the UN reasons for endorsing Mr. Ouattara as president of the world’s largest cocoa exporter, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative Y. J. Choi last week publicly rebutted Mr. Gbagbo’s claims of irregularities point by point, noting that even if contested tally sheets were thrown out, it was still clear that Mr. Ouattara had won.UNOCI, with a current strength of over 9,000 uniformed personnel, has been supporting reunification efforts since 2003.Cote 13 December 2010The United Nations moved today towards imposing sanctions on anybody obstructing the peace process in Côte d’Ivoire, where outgoing president Laurent Gbagbo refuses to step down despite international recognition of opposition leader Alassane Ouattara as the divided country’s new head. read more

Madras High Court orders release of Lankan refugee

A 28-year-old Sri Lankan refugee, who was lodged at the Mandapam refugee camp in India for illegally staying in India, was released following the Madras High Court orders, the Press Trust of India reported.“Ahamed Iqmal is free to leave for his country with his father, Mohammed Bowser, after the latter paid Rs 32000 today, as per the Court orders, for his son’s illegal stay in India,” customs officials said. Last week, the High Court had ordered his release from the camp, on payment of the fine for staying in the country without valid documents. Iqmal was nabbed by the customs officials when he tried to flee India in June, from Dhanushkodi near here with the help of one Selvaraj. Subsequently, he was imprisoned before being shifted to the Mandapam refugee camp.His father had then approached the Madras High Court’s Madurai Bench seeking his release from the camp for returning to Sri Lanka. Bowser had contended that his son had lost his documents when he was receiving treatment at Nagore and that he had come to India with proper documents.The officials were not releasing him though he wanted to go back, he had alleged.

Undercover video uses Sri Lanka elections to trap UK firm

“If you’re collecting data on people and you’re profiling them,” said Alex Taylor, the chief data officer, “that gives you more insight that you can use to know how to segment the population, to give them messaging about issues that they care about, and language and imagery that they’re likely to engage with. And we use that in America, and we use that in Africa, that’s what we do as a company.” “We’ve done it Mexico, we’ve done it in Malaysia,” added Mark Turnbull, managing director. “We’re not moving into Brazil.” The executives explained how they used their methods to influence an election in Kenya.In another secretly recorded meeting, Turnbull described how the company used other organizations to investigate opponents and drop their “secrets” on the internet to damaging effect. “The two fundamental human drivers when it comes to taking information onboard effectively are hopes and fears and many of those are unspoken and even unconscious,” he said. “You didn’t know that was a fear until you saw something that just evoked that reaction from you.”“And our job is to get, it to drop the bucket further down the well than anybody else,” he added, “to understand, what are those really deep-seated underlying fears, concerns.“It’s no good fighting an election campaign on the facts, because actually it’s all about emotion,” he concluded. “So we’re not in the business of fake news, we’re not in the business of lying, making stuff up, and we’re not in the business of entrapment,” he said. “So we wouldn’t, we wouldn’t send a pretty girl out to seduce a politician and then film them in their bedroom and then release the film.”“There are companies that do this, but to me that crosses a line,” he claimed.However, in a further meeting, they appeared to affirm that they would be very willing to do exactly such things.In the last meeting, the investigation’s agents met with Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix.“We are not only the largest and most significant political consultancy in the world,” said Nix on the recording, “but we have the most established track record. We’re used to operating through different vehicles, in the shadows, and I look forward to building a very long-term and secretive relationship with you.”In the last meeting, Turnbull and Nix met with the supposed Sri Lankan agent.“And what we want to know is what is the expertise of the deep digging that you can do to make sure that the people know the true identity and secrets of these people,” the agent asked.“Oh, we do a lot more than that,” Nix responded. “I mean deep digging is interesting, but you know equally effective can be just to go and speak to the incumbents and offer them a deal that’s too good to be true, and make sure that’s video recorded you know. These sorts of tactics are very effective. Instantly having video evidence of corruption, putting it on the internet, these sorts of things.”“And the operative you will use for this is who?” the agent asked.“Well someone known to us,” Nix said.“OK, so it is somebody, you won’t use a Sri Lankan person?” the agent asked.“No, no, we’ll have a wealthy developer come in,” Nix explained, “somebody posing as a wealthy developer. They will offer a large amount of money to the candidate, to finance his campaign in exchange for land, for instance. We’ll have the whole thing recorded on cameras. We’ll blank out the face of our guy, and then post it on the internet.”“So on Facebook or YouTube or something like this?” the agent asked.“Send some girls around to the candidate’s house,” Nix added. “We have lots of history of things.”“For example you’re saying when you’re using the girls to introduce to the local fellow,” the agent asked, “and you’re using the girls for this, like the seduction, they’re not local girls, not Sri Lankan girls?”“I wouldn’t have thought so no, we’ll bring some,” Nix responded, “I mean, that was just an idea. Just saying we could bring some Ukrainians in on holiday with us, you know. You know what I’m saying.”“They are very beautiful,” said the agent, “Ukrainian girls.”“They are very beautiful,” Nix agreed, “I find that works very well.”“Please don’t pay too much attention to what I’m saying because I’m just giving you examples of what can be done and what, what has been done,” Nix said.“I mean,” Nix explains further on in the conversation, “it sounds a dreadful thing to say, but these are things that don’t necessarily need to be true as long as they’re believed.”Later on, Nix says that they can set up fake IDs and fake websites to hide their actions. “We can go in as students doing research projects,” he explained, “attached to the university, we can be tourists, there’s so many options.”“I’ve got a lot of experience in this,” he added. (Colombo Gazette)<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> When asked about intelligence gathering, Turnbull responded that they were very willing to investigate political opponents.“We have relationships and partnerships with specialist organizations that do that kind of, do that kind of work. You Know who the opposition is, you know their secrets. You know their tactics.”In another meeting two weeks later, Turnbull explained how Cambridge would manipulate underlying fears to move the emotions of their target voters. “There are various intelligence-gathering organizations that operate very discreetly,” Turnbull said, “to find information like that. I know people who used to work for [British intelligence services] MI-5, MI-6, they now work for these private organizations. They will find all the skeletons in his closet, quietly, discreetly, and give you a report.”“It has to happen without anyone thinking that’s propaganda because the moment you think that’s propaganda, the next question is, who’s put that out?” he explained. “So we have to be very subtle.”They went on to discuss how Cambridge Analytica can operate under a different name, a different entity, in order to escape detection of their involvement.In this meeting, Turnbull told the Channel Four agent that they would not be propagating fake news, or setting up traps for politicians. A British data analysis firm Cambridge Analytica had offered to influence elections in Sri Lanka, in a undercover video shot by Channel 4 television.Channel Four investigators sent what appeared to be a political agent from Sri Lanka and his assistant to meet with Cambridge Analytica executives, but they were secretly recording. They told them were seeking help in influencing political campaigns in Sri Lanka, and met with them in several meetings at hotels in London. read more

Côte dIvoire 10000 Liberian refugees without aid after attacks on UN agency

Last week’s attacks on the offices of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Côte d’Ivoire have left 10,000 Liberians who had fled their country without assistance, a spokesman for the Geneva-based agency said today.Ron Redmond told reporters today UNHCR is looking for ways to resume its activities on behalf of thousands of refugees in western Côte d’Ivoire, where violence in struck Guiglo, near the Liberian border. The agency’s office there was destroyed after protestors looted the premises and set fire to the building.“All files were lost, as well as five cars, one motorcycle, and three generators. Other UN agencies and several international NGOs have suffered similar losses. Warehouses containing relief items and food were also looted,” he said. The agency evacuated its staff from the area after violence spread last Monday night, when hundreds of protesters converged on the UN compound. Those incidents followed similar protests against the UN in Abidjan. “UNHCR is shocked at the level of the violence and saddened that its staff and other UN and humanitarian workers were targeted,” Mr. Redmond said. “UNHCR has been in Guiglo for more than 10 years, working on behalf of refugees and the local host population.”He voiced concern that the agency has no staff left on the ground to assist more than 10,000 Liberian refugees, while relief items – including food – destined for them have been looted, as have the vehicles needed to reach beneficiaries and distribute aid. A UN inter-agency mission is scheduled to go to Guiglo in the coming days to assess the situation on the ground and the possibility of resuming operations. read more
