WHO to send 1m cholera vaccine doses to hurricane-hit Haiti

first_imgInternationalNewsPrintRegional WHO to send 1m cholera vaccine doses to hurricane-hit Haiti by: Associated Free Press – October 11, 2016 Tweet Share 27 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share GENEVA, Switzerland (AFP) — The World Health Organization said Tuesday it would send a million cholera vaccine doses to Haiti, which has seen cases of the disease surge since it was ravaged by Hurricane Matthew last week.The storm, which has killed at least 372 people in the impoverished Caribbean nation, came as Haitians were already struggling with the intestinal disease spread by contaminated food and water.WHO cholera expert Dominique Legros told reporters in Geneva there had already been “a sharp increase” in cases in the south of the country, with 148 cases detected in the Grande’Anse department and 53 more in the South department.The potential for a reinvigorated cholera outbreak is especially alarming for Haiti, which has grappled with the disease since the aftermath of its catastrophic earthquake in 2010.Since then, around 10,000 people have died from the disease, and on average some 500 new cases have been reported every week over the past six years.New cases had already begun rising before the hurricane, with 29,000 reported since the beginning of the year, an average of nearly 800 a week, WHO said.The hurricane, which fouled water sources, hit Haiti just as the country was approaching the period of the year when it generally counts most cholera cases, Legros said.Making matters worse, the storm damaged around a quarter of all health facilities in the south of the country, making it more difficult for cholera patients to get treatment.To try to halt the spread of the deadly disease, WHO has decided to send one million vaccine doses to Haiti for a large-scale immunisation campaign, he said.Two doses of the vaccine are needed to offer full protection, but Legros said WHO and the Haitian government were considering a one-dose campaign in a bid to reach more people.Legros explained that one dose of the vaccine had been shown to offer full protection for about six months, with the effect fully disappearing within about a year. He said this should be “enough to cover the period most at risk.” Before the hurricane, some 400,000 people had already received a double dose of the vaccine since 2013, he said.last_img read more

Bobos, Coyne Power UWF To 68-49 Win Over Young Harris

first_img Preview Full Schedule Roster Live Stats Next Game: Alabama Huntsville 12/2/2015 – 1:00 p.m. CT Watch Live Box Score: PDF | XMLUpdated Stats: PDF | XMLPENSACOLA Fla. – Katie Bobos had a double-double and Alex Coyne sparked two second-half runs that helped the West Florida women’s basketball team pull away and defeat Young Harris, 68-49, in the home opener at the UWF Field House Saturday. Bobos finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and three assists for her 12th career double-double and first this season. Coyne, a transfer from Southern Miss,, continued her strong play at the point guard spot, handing out seven assists for the third-consecutive game to go along with her career-high 20 points – on 7 of 10 shooting – and four steals. Coyne had a 3-point play and made two of her game-high three 3-pointers in a 13-2 run early in the fourth quarter that turned a five point Argonaut lead into a comfortable 58-42 margin with 3:41 to play. Toni Brewer scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Argos, who won their second game of the week. UWF (2-2) shot 43 percent and was 14 of 15 from the free throw line. The Argos also held a 20-8 edge in points off turnovers. Young Harris (3-2) shot just 32 percent and committed 18 turnovers. The Mountain Lions came into the contest averaging a Division II best 18.3 steals per game, but managed just four against the Argos. YH did hold a slight edge on the glass, 39-36, including 16-10 on the offensive end, but were outscored 14-0 in second chance points. YH led for the opening seven minutes before a Jasmine Wigfall jumper gave UWF its first lead of the contest at 11-10. The Mountain Lions regained the lead in the early part of the second quarter, staking a 20-16 lead thanks to a Sara Jorgensen jumper and Briana Bell 3-pointer with 9:18 on the clock. Three consecutive buckets from Bobos put the Argos back on to, 22-20, near the midway point of the period. UWF eventually took a 30-29 lead into the locker room. UWF came out on fire in the third, scoring the first seven points and using a 10-1 run for a 40-30 advantage at the 5-minute mark. They led 43-38 going into the fourth quarter. UWF will return to action on Wednesday, Dec. 2 when it opens Gulf South Conference play against Alabama Huntsville in an afternoon doubleheader at the UWF Field House. Tip-off for the women’s game is set for 1 p.m. with the men’s game at approximately 3 p.m. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

All Blacks to tour Japan in November 2018

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES All Blacks, Brave Blossoms, 2019 Rugby World Cup IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 KEYWORDScenter_img Japan will play the two-time defending Rugby World Cup champions All Blacks in a November test match next year, the two unions announced jointly on Wednesday.The announcement was made with New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English in attendance. English had said he is keen for the All Blacks to play in Japan before the 2019 World Cup, according to Radio New Zealand. The game, the sixth time the nations will meet, will be held Nov. 3 at a venue yet to be named. The trip to Japan will be New Zealand’s first since 2013, when the visitors won 54-6 — the closest the matchup has ever been in the five times the two teams have met.All Blacks coach Steve Hansen had said at last week’s World Cup draw in Kyoto that a match against Japan “wouldn’t be a bad idea.” last_img read more

Alabama offensive coordinator Kiffin returning for 2nd year

first_imgTUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Lane Kiffin is back for Year 2 as Alabama’s offensive coordinator, despite being up for at least one NFL job.Kiffin faces a much different challenge this year with another search for a starting quarterback and no Amari Cooper, but for the Crimson Tide just having him back is good news.Reportedly a candidate for the San Francisco 49ers’ offensive coordinator job, Kiffin stuck with coach Nick Saban and the Tide.“The calls that come, obviously you’re going to listen to them,” he said Sunday at Alabama’s media day. “I just really felt that we had done so many good things in Year 1, but this chapter wasn’t over yet. There’s still so many things to learn from Coach.“Just going into the offseason, it’s kind of like being a freshman. I’ve said that to one of our coaches. I feel like a sophomore now where last year you’re a freshman just trying to figure it out, trying to get the scripts ready, get to practice and stuff. Now you really start to understand how and why he does it and why it’s so successful.”The former Southern California, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Volunteers head coach guided one-year starting quarterback Blake Sims to a school record for passing yards en route to the national semifinals.Now, Kiffin has five quarterbacks to choose from before the opener Sept. 5 against Wisconsin, led by Jake Coker and David Cornwell. He said the competition is “wide open” but mostly declined to discuss specific candidates just a few days into preseason camp.The combination of Saban and the outspoken Kiffin, which seemed potentially combustible, ended up working well. Part of that might be because the preseason media day is the only time the head man allows his coordinators to speak to reporters before the postseason.They took advantage of Sims’ style of play to switch to a more fast-paced offense, which Kiffin said was Saban’s idea.Cooper wound up being a Heisman Trophy finalist and a top-five NFL draft pick after shattering a number of Alabama receiving records. Now, the Tide must replace three starting offensive linemen, the three leading receivers and tailback T.J. Yeldon, the program’s No. 4 career rusher.It’s another sizable challenge for Kiffin, but at least he’s not a freshman any more.“We’re going to find our players and get them the ball the best way we can,” he said. “It’s not Little League, where everyone gets the same amount of touches. You saw it last year with Amari and everything being so lopsided. It came down to OK, if he’s your best player, give him the ball.“It’s a basketball mentality. If LeBron’s (James) got 30 at half, you’re not going to stop passing it to him. I think Amari had 47 catches in the first quarter of games alone. Now he’s gone, so where are those catches going to go?”They will be divvied in some fashion among veteran receiver Chris Black and an assortment of highly rated young recruits, including Robert Foster, ArDarius Stewart and freshmen Daylon Charlot and Calvin Ridley.Tight end O.J. Howard, a swift 6-foot-6, 242-pounder, also could be more of a receiving target. The offensive stalwarts early on, at least, might be 242-pound running back Derrick Henry, who actually led the Tide in rushing last season, and versatile backfield mate Kenyan Drake.“Our whole offense can surprise people this year because we have basically a new identity,” Howard said. “We have a lot of guys that are going to play this year that haven’t really played a lot. I think just in general our whole offense will be surprising to a lot of people when they see what kind of guys we have that can make plays.”___Follow John Zenor on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/jzenorlast_img read more

Palais maintain consistency, says Tietjens

first_imgRUGBY BY SIMON KESLEP ICTSI South Pacific PNG Palais are maintaining their fitness by consistently running and maintaining their body weights. They are doing this in isolation training programs says Coach Paul Tietjens. The Tietjens coached side were one of the national teams affected by the effects of Coronavirus (Covid-19) which saw some global sports competitions put on hold while others suspended. He said the team was supposed to play a friendly trial against Australia but unfortunately this did not eventuate. According to Tietjens, Palais were preparing for the World Series Qualifier and their preparations include having some game time in Australia. Players who have maintained consistency in game combinations at the top representative level include Kymlie Rapilla, Lynette Kwarula, Alice Alois, Tanya Lavai, Fatima Rama, Cathy Puro and Chelsea Garesa. While those stepping back into the spotlight for representative duties include Yolanda Gittins, Gemma Schnaubelt and Marlugu Dixon. “Unfortunately it was disappointing for us but then again the girls understood it was all about the health and safety of the team with regards to Coronavirus. We plan for a training camp in Port Moresby and currently the girls were issued isolation training programs,” said Coach Tietjens. These training programs include running, fitness and body weight purposely to maintain consistency. Tietjens said his advice to all the players is to keep self motivation and positive mindset despite not having enough game time. Following his father’s coaching footsteps, Tietjens young coaching career has also come into experiencing a new norm of reaching out with his players using technology to communicate and keep track of players training. “We are fortunate to do things on line, we know it’s a bit challenging but we just have to go with it and hope things get back to normal. Stay motivated, stay discipline and complete training sessions,” said Tietjens. Coach Tietjens also said there is nothing official as yet from Oceania Rugby or the international rugby as to when international representative tournaments kicks off.last_img read more

Kentucky prepares for Georgia looking to end 3-game slide

first_imgLEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Neither Kentucky coach Mark Stoops nor his players are panicking despite a three-game losing streak threatening a repeat of last season’s second-half collapse that knocked the Wildcats out of postseason.There is, however, a sense of urgency to correct breakdowns that have created the downward spiral. Stoops is working for Kentucky (4-4, 2-4 SEC) to pull things together before Saturday’s Southeastern Conference game at Georgia, a team smarting from a 27-3 thumping by No. 11 Florida.Stoops believes staying positive is a good first step.“The only way you make this feeling go away is to go get a victory,” the coach said during Monday’s weekly news conference. “That’s it. That is it. We are not alone. Georgia is going to feel the same way.”A win is possible for the Wildcats if they show more poise instead of folding at critical moments, and there have been many of those in losses to Tennessee and Mississippi State. Poor tackling, missed assignments and lost containment have contributed to big plays by both schools, who have outscored the Wildcats 94-37 and outgained them 1,068-772 combined.Tennessee scored five chunk-play touchdowns of at least 28 yards alone in Saturday’s 52-21 victory, with one second-quarter sequence shifting the momentum. After quarterback Patrick Towles scored on a fourth-down keeper to put Kentucky ahead 14-10, the Vols completed a 75-yard TD pass on its next snap and didn’t look back.Special teams sealed Tennessee’s second straight 50-point effort against Kentucky as the Vols returned a kickoff 100 yards and a punt 84 for TDs.“You can’t win that way,” Stoops said. “That’s frustrating, but there’s no panic. It’s not good enough and it’s not acceptable, but we know there’s plays in there we have to build on. It’s a loss, but we can’t let that shake us up and worry us as we move forward.”Kentucky also must soldier on without leading rusher Stanley “Boom” Williams, who sustained an elbow injury in the second quarter against Tennessee and did not return. He’s out against Georgia and is being evaluated on a weekly basis.Sophomore Mikel Horton takes over in the backfield after career highs of 14 carries for 109 yards rushing against the Vols. Special teams player Joey Herrick is also out with a bone bruise.Georgia has its own issues as well after losing to the Gators in Jacksonville.Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said Sunday that he’s considering “all possibilities” at quarterback after Faton Bauta threw four interceptions in his first career start. His other option is Greyson Lambert, whose benching opened the door for Bauta.No matter who starts behind center for Georgia, Kentucky’s mission is keeping them and other skill players from breaking free between the hedges if the Wildcats are to win for the first time in Athens since 2009. Stoops never expected the quest for respectability to be easy and after losing their final six last year, he’s working to ensure a losing mentality doesn’t take root with remaining games against Charlotte, Vanderbilt and Louisville.The Wildcats are just thinking of winning one right now, which begins with keeping games in their control.“There is not one bit of me that thinks our hearts were not in it,” Stoops said. “We have to do a better job in critical situations and a lot of that comes down to third downs on both sides of the ball.”___AP College Football: http://www.collegefootball.ap.orglast_img read more

LSU prepares for versatile attack

first_imgBATON ROUGE – The last time Wisconsin starting quarterback Tanner McEvoy played the position in a game was in front of 2,984 fans in the El Toro Bowl at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Yuma, Arizona, nearly two years ago.It was Dec. 1, 2012, and he completed 18 of 24 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns for his Arizona Western College Matadors in a 42-37 win over Nassau Community College. There will be more than 70,000 in Houston’s sold-out NRG Stadium, where the NFL Texans play, on Saturday when he takes the first snap for No. 14 Wisconsin against No. 13 LSU at 8:10 p.m. on ESPN.A transfer from the South Carolina Gamecocks, McEvoy could not budge the depth chart at quarterback for Wisconsin last season and moved to wide receiver and defensive back. He is back as the starting quarterback now because of his running ability.“We’re preparing for the best offense that they have,” said LSU coach Les Miles, who will play a pair of green running quarterbacks himself in freshman Brandon Harris and sophomore Anthony Jennings.“That would be run and pass,” Miles said. “Obviously he (McEvoy) has got some abilities to move his feet. We expect the same route tree to be used, the same offense, maybe just a little bit more mobile quarterback.”LSU was 2-0 against the ultimate mobile college quarterback of recent years as it defeated Texas A&M and Johnny Manziel in 2012 and ’13.“We’ve had success with other dual threat guys, but this is a different style of offense,” Miles said. “Wisconsin has a quality ground game, a variety of formations and now a mobile quarterback as well as a really quality throwing game. It’ll be interesting to see how that comes out.”Wisconsin junior tailback Melvin Gordon finished 10th in the nation last season with 1,609 yards on 206 carries and led the nation with 7.8 yards per carry.LOUIS PLAYED HURT: LSU junior starting outside linebacker Lamar Louis of Breaux Bridge revealed recently that he played most of last season with a fractured right wrist.“Well, Lamar Louis is a tough kid, a quality person really committed to his game,” said Miles, who usually is not forthcoming about injuries and was not last season concerning Louis. “When asked to play with pain really by his teammates, he kind of stepped in. Honestly, he made a real sacrifice for his teammates.”Louis hurt his wrist before the 2013 season but still played in 13 games as a backup, making 25 tackles with a fumble recovery.TIGER ITINERARY: The Tigers will leave campus at 12:30 p.m. Friday for the Baton Rouge airport for a 1:30 p.m. charter flight to Houston for Saturday night’s game against Wisconsin.After a one-hour flight, the team will have a short walk-through practice at NRG Stadium at 3:35 p.m. before checking in at the Omni Hotel, which is about 20 minutes from the stadium. The Tigers will leave the hotel at 5:35 p.m. Saturday for the game. The team is scheduled to fly back to Baton Rouge at 2:30 a.m. Sunday.last_img read more

Mohan pilots Marian Academy to Titan Bowl title

first_img– GTI upstage LTI to lift trophy AN MVP-performance from Jada Mohan was all it took for Marian Academy to sink Kwakwani Secondary 58 – 19 to take home the female Youth Basketball Guyana (YBG) Titan Bowl, when the curtain came down on the tournament on Sunday last at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall. In the male category, the Government Technical Institute (GTI) had the better of the Linden Technical Institute (LTI) in a ten-point thriller (83 – 73), to keep the trophy in Georgetown.The victorious Government Technical Institute (GTI)Mohan was sensational in her performance as she completely dominated the floor during her 27 points performance. The standout point guard also had four assists, five rebounds and six steals to, along with her showing, earn the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.For the school from the Berbice River in Region 10, Shania Sears scored seven points and grabbed five rebounds in the loss to Marian Academy.Meanwhile, Anton Fileen had a game-high 29 points and hauled in 12 rebounds, while dishing out five assists in an impressive win for GTI. Jared Sears’ 20 points and eight rebounds also punctuated the night for GTI, who had to hold off the sharp-shooting Daniel Lee and Jamal Gilkes in order to win the title.Lee was good enough for 28 points and six rebounds, and Gilkes netted 25 points and 11 ‘boards’ but that was not enough for the Lindeners to hold on for the win.The tournament, which was sponsored by Edward B. Beharry and Company Ltd, Banks DIH LTD and the National Sports Commission (NSC), is the final tournament of the year on the school’s basketball calendar.last_img read more

Manchester City have ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ to sign 23 year old at…

first_imgThe Portuguese press are back with more excitement over Ederson’s transfer to Manchester City.As the goalkeeper will be playing his 50th game for Benfica this weekend, Record use the milestone to explain he won’t be staying long at the club. Party-poopers.After only one paragraph about 50 games, the newspaper claims Manchester City and Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira have a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ over the transfer.They state that although there are other candidates for the 23 year old, Manchester City are still the ‘most likely destination’.Ederson currently has a €50m release clause. But as revealed by Benfica last month, 50% of a sale will go to his former club Rio Ave, so the Eagles should end up getting only €25m for the goalkeeper.That’s what leads us to believe that if this agreement is real, the transfer fee would be close to his clause. Benfica wouldn’t let a player of such potential leave for less.But the Portuguese press often overreact over big transfers, and as you can see the move isn’t even in the headline. It’s one of those cases when the sale becomes an absolute truth for the newspaper, even though things may not be that close yet.With Claudio Bravo not working out for Pep Guardiola, it would probably be wise for Manchester City to consider signing a new goalkeeper in the summer.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndo美術寶1對1香港媽媽們注意了,速來領取適合4-12歲孩子的繪畫課,手慢無美術寶1對1UndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.comUndo熱門話題生髮率無敵高!96%的禿頭都獲得改善!←這會不會長太多?熱門話題Undolast_img read more

Purple is the Raven’s primary color (as it should be). We have had endzones in teams’ second colors before, but they featured team-color helmets and team-color wordmarks. Their endzone is entirely devoid of their primary color aside from a few strokes on the bird logo. That’s really bad. At very worst they should put a purple outline around the wordmark.

Hopefully the game lighting makes it look more purple because you really have to look at it to tell it’s purple. AgentColon Link to post Followers 1 Has there been any official word on how the color of the end zone changed from purple to black seemingly overnight? I’m all for black end zones, when it’s a primary color (like the Raiders), but the purple and red would have been a nice look on the field.Only thing that’s coming through my mind is that purple seems to be the “theme” color that New Orleans is using for the game, and maybe they realized a purple end zone would have been too much “purple” in the stands…As for the 49ers end zone… I actually don’t mind the red.
