Oct 28, 2009WHO experts tackle H1N1 vaccine questionsThe World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) immunization experts today discussed issues related to the H1N1 vaccine, according to its agenda. The Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) was asked if epidemiologic or vaccine-availability issues would alter SAGE’s recommendations, how many doses per person are needed, if seasonal and pandemic doses can be co-administered, and if obesity is a risk factor. A WHO spokesman said results of the meeting may be available tomorrow.http://www.who.int/entity/immunization/sage/DRAFT_AGENDA_Oct_SAGE_meeting_9_Oct.pdfOct 27-29 WHO SAGE agendaVaccine production reaches 23.2 million dosesThe cumulative total of H1N1 vaccine doses available reached 23.2 million today, up about 800,000 from yesterday’s 22.4 million, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said at a press conference today. She said about 9 million doses were added to the total in the past week. All 50 states have ordered supplies of vaccine, she reported.http://www.flu.gov/live/?date=102809Oct 28 HHS press conference recordingLack of prioritization cited for LA vaccine shortageIn the early stages of Los Angeles County’s free H1N1 vaccination clinics, overwhelmed staff members vaccinated many people who were not in the vaccination priority groups, the Los Angeles Times reported today. As of yesterday, the county had only enough doses to last through Nov 4 instead of the planned Nov 8, said Dr. Jonathan Fielding, public health director. He said officials didn’t want to turn away people who had traveled and stood in line to get vaccinated.http://www.latimes.com/features/health/la-me-swine-flu28-2009oct28,0,3322926.storyOct 28 Los Angeles Times reportFormer FDA official says policy has slowed vaccineOverly cautious policy decisions by the US government are partly to blame for shortages of the pandemic H1N1 vaccine, according to a former Food and Drug Administration official who wrote an editorial for the Wall Street Journal. Scott Gottlieb, MD, said the use of adjuvants could have stretched supplies. He said a focus on single-dose vials has slowed vaccine delivery, as has reliance on outdated egg-based production.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704335904574497324151841690.htmlOct 27 Wall Street Journal articleOman launches H1N1 vaccine campaignHealth authorities in Oman said yesterday that they have started the country’s pandemic H1N1 vaccine campaign after receiving the first 100,000 doses of its 2.6 million dose order, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported. For now, priority groups include older people, pregnant women, health workers, and Mecca pilgrims. The vaccine is free for all citizens. To address concerns about vaccine safety, media outlets showed senior officials receiving flu shots.http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticleNew.asp?col=§ion=middleeast&xfile=data/middleeast/2009/October/middleeast_October743.xmlOct 27 AFP storyIceland finds pandemic virus in pigsVeterinary officials in Iceland confirmed the pandemic H1N1 virus in a pig herd after 10 of the animals started showing symptoms such as poor appetite, fever, and coughing, according to a report yesterday to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). Investigators are exploring the possibility that humans spread the virus to the pigs; two workers had flulike symptoms before the pigs got sick. The 4,500-pig farm is under quarantine.http://www.oie.int/wahis/reports/en_imm_0000008594_20091027_152635.pdfOct 27 OIE reportGender-based vaccine doses suggested to boost supplyTwo commentators writing in the New York Times say that using lower doses of flu vaccine in women could improve the vaccine supply without sacrificing protection. Sarah L. Klein, a Johns Hopkins immunologist, and Phyllis Greenbrier, president of the Society for Women’s Health Research, point to studies in which women had a significantly stronger immune response to flu vaccines than men did. They say that besides stretching the supply, the step would reduce side effects for women.http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/28/opinion/28klein.html?_r=1&ref=opinionOct 28 New York Times commentarySen Collins asks HHS to explain vaccine delaysSen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) wrote a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius yesterday asking why there are fewer pandemic H1N1 vaccine doses than officials originally projected. Her letter appeared on the Web site of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. Collins said shortages are alarming because not all high-risk groups can be vaccinated and the vaccine could arrive too late to prevent infections in many Americans. She asked the HHS to share its latest projections.http://www.mpbn.net/News/MaineNews/tabid/181/ctl/ViewItem/mid/3483/ItemId/9533/Default.aspxOct 27 letter from Collins to Sebelius

All of them are hosted by Sommet’s internationally known institutions specializing in catering and culinary arts: the Glion Institute of Higher Education, Les Roches and École Ducasse. In June this year World Tourism Organization and Sommet Education launched the Hospitality Challenge. The challenge of hospitality is designed to identify ideas and individuals that can accelerate the recovery of the tourism sector after the COVID-19 pandemic. A large number of high-quality projects that promote inclusiveness and sustainability to rediscover the hospitality of tomorrow, also provide fresh ideas for the tourism sector. This will enable tourism to continue to contribute to the overall socio-economic recovery. The Hospitality Challenge focused on four categories. Hotels and hospitality it was the most popular, the category followed Luxury travel, goods and services, then the category Food and drink and at the end Smart real estate category. The analysis of different categories shows great interest in improving the operational side of the hotel through its social impact, and many projects aim reducing unemployment and better management of hotel staff. Scholarships are intended accelerating the personal development of gifted individuals which will build the hospitality of tomorrow. The three best entrepreneurial projects among 30 winners will receive an initial investment from Euraze. The winners will be announced in March 2021.

Almost 50% of projects are related to the goal of sustainable development – decent work and economic growth. Many projects also offer new perspectives on the response to COVID-19.

Bob Lindinger’ Oct. 9 letter correctly faults David Gillikin’s Sept. 14 letter for stating that “the science is settled” in regard to global warming. He points out examples of times when received scientific theories, such as Newtonian physics, have been overturned.But, looking carefully at Mr. Gillikin’s letter, the reader can see that he’s not claiming he has a settled theory. He’s pointing out facts that are settled because they are verifiable: Seas are rising and acidifying, temperatures are rising, the strength of hurricanes is increasing. He then advances the theory, held by 99 percent of all climate scientists, that CO2 [carbon dioxide] from burning fossil fuels is the main cause of these facts.You can argue with all those scientists about the theory if you care to (I don’t), but you can’t argue with the facts.Elizabeth PorebaNew LebanonMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsGov.

Sydney Morning Herald 20 May 2015As a clinical psychologist, one of my roles when working with terminally ill individuals is to assist them to contain and tolerate their complex feelings of distress, fear, abandonment, helplessness and pain –physical and/or emotional. This is “true compassion” and empathy: accompanying someone during their unavoidable pain and suffering.Treating people with dignity is providing care, compassion and company to those in desperate need of it, as they face their greatest fear: death.Being in favour of assisted suicide goes against the principle that all life is precious. Euthanasia supports the view that human dignity or worth is dependent upon one’s health status or capabilities, rather than it being dependent upon simply being human. Assisted suicide promotes a utilitarian view of humanity, where we judge whose life is worthwhile and whose is not, based on their medical status or capabilities.Doctors and other health practitioners who support euthanasia will be communicating an implicit message to the patient that “I agree with you, your life is no longer worth living”. First, by whose standards would we judge whose life is not worthwhile any more and whose is? Second, this implicit message, instead of alleviating the helplessness, will instead reinforce the helplessness and the hopelessness the patient is feeling.Euthanasia changes the definition and role of a doctor from an expert in healing and helping the patient to be restored to health, to being expert in prescribing drugs to end life. Doctors to whom I have spoken informed me this goes against the Hippocratic oath they take when they become doctors to do no harm, and that this oath would likely need to be changed or excluded in their training, if laws allowing euthanasia were to be enacted. Do we really want this?http://www.smh.com.au/comment/euthanasia-is-not-merciful-theres-meaning-in-life-even-in-the-deepest-pain-20150520-ggyx2t

(REUTERS) – World soccer governing body FIFA said yesterday it had warned Mexico over what it said were “insulting and discriminatory” chants during their first Confederations Cup match in Russia.The incident occurred on Sunday at Mexico’s 2-2 draw against Portugal in Kazan, FIFA said in a statement, just days after it announced stricter measures to crack down on fans’ behaviour at the tournament including allowing referees to stop matches.FIFA said its disciplinary committee chairman Anin Yeboah had warned “the Mexican Football Federation for the misconduct of a small group of Mexican fans in relation to insulting and discriminatory chants” and said it could take further action in the event of another similar incident.It gave no details on what action could be taken.FIFA has already fined Mexico for fans’ homophobic chants during their qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup.Mexican players last year launched their own campaign against homophobic slurs during matches.Mexico face New Zealand today in Sochi in their second Confederations Cup match.
(BBC) – Lyon striker Ada Hegerberg has signed a “historic” lucrative long-term sponsorship deal with Nike.Hegerberg, 24, has parted with Puma and her representatives claim her new deal runs for “at least” a decade.A source told AFP the contract was worth upwards of 1m euros (£890 000) to the Norwegian player.“It is yet another massive step in my career,” said Hegerberg. “Nike and I have common goals to elevate women’s sports in the years to come.”She added: “My performances brought me here, and I sure want to keep writing history with the help of Nike, on and off the field. I am thrilled to be part of this team.”Victor Bernard, Hegerberg’s agent, said: “This is a historic contract and a true commitment both to Ada and women’s football.”Hegerberg was the first winner of the women’s Ballon d’Or in 2018 and was also named BBC Women’s Footballer-of-the-Year in 2017 and 2019.Her goals have helped Lyon win their domestic title for five consecutive seasons and claim the women’s Champions League in each of the last four seasons.However, she did not take part in last year’s World Cup in France because of a long-standing disagreement with the Norwegian football association and was succeeded as Ballon d’Or winner in 2019 by USA star Megan Rapinoe.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error DETROIT — Kirk Gibson has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, he said Tuesday.The 1988 National League MVP was fired in September as manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks after four-plus seasons. He now calls Tigers games for Fox Sports Detroit, but Gibson had not been in the broadcast booth since opening day April 6 while undergoing tests.“I have faced many different obstacles in my life, and have always maintained a strong belief that no matter the circumstances, I could overcome those obstacles,” he said in a statement through the network. “While this diagnosis poses a new kind of challenge for me, I intend to stay true to my beliefs. With the support of my family and friends, I will meet this challenge with the same determination and unwavering intensity that I have displayed in all of my endeavors in life. I look forward to being back at the ballpark as soon as possible.”The 57-year-old Gibson had one of the most memorable moments in baseball history with his limping, pinch-hit home run in the ninth inning of Game 1 of the 1988 World Series for the Dodgers. He also won a championship in 1984 with the Tigers, where he played 12 of his 17 major league seasons.
