first_imgAug 3, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Scientists from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Africa have for the first time isolated Marburg viruses from fruit bats found in a Ugandan cave where humans were infected, a finding that suggests bats may be a natural host of the virus.The group reported their findings in the Jul 13 issue of Public Library of Science Pathogens (PLoS Pathogens). The natural reservoirs for the Marburg virus and its close relative, Ebola virus, have long been the subject of speculation.The CDC said in a Jul 31 press release that caves where the bats dwell in Africa are popular tourist attractions, and some bat-infested mines are actively used by local people, putting bats and people in close contact.A Dutch woman died of Marburg hemorrhagic fever in 2008 after visiting a “python cave” in western Uganda, and the illness was confirmed in a US patient who had visited the same cave a few months earlier. The current study was prompted by a death and confirmed and suspected Marburg illnesses in lead and gold miners who worked at Kitaka Cave in remote western Uganda.”By identifying the natural source of this virus, appropriate public health resources can be directed to prevent future outbreaks,” the CDC said in the statement. Understanding more about transmission between bats and humans may provide clues to prevention or treatment for Marburg virus infections. Currently, no vaccine or specific treatment is available.Previous studies had found antibodies to and genetic fragments of the Marburg virus in the bats, but no live virus.In the current study, researchers trapped and took blood and tissue samples from bats at Kitaka Cave during two visits, one in August 2007 after the miners were sickened and one in May 2008.Bats at the cave appeared healthy enough to seek food. The team found active Marburg virus infections in 5% (31 of 611) of Egyptian fruit bats, common in Africa, the eastern Mediterranean, and the Middle East, and isolated the live virus from five animals. Four of the isolates came from animals trapped during the 2007 trip, and one came from an animal sampled in 2008.The research group reported that sampling large numbers of bats and flash freezing and preserving samples in liquid nitrogen immediately after dissection helped them successfully isolate the live virus. Also, they said launching the ecological study soon after the outbreak in humans enabled them to do their work while the virus activity in the bats was probably still high.The scientists didn’t find any viral DNA in oral swabs taken from the bats, but they said ruling out saliva transmission would be premature given the limited number of bats tested. They found no evidence of vertical transmission when they tested the placentas of pregnant female bats.They projected that more than 5,000 infected bats could have been in the colony at any one time, “suggesting that there is a high risk of infection for humans who spend extended periods in close proximity to the bats,” they wrote.Genetic analysis of the Marburg sequences from the bats and the miners found that diverse Marburg lineages were circulating in the cave’s bats, suggesting that the virus had circulated in the bats for a long time, and that some of the sequences were nearly identical to the human isolates.Towner JS, Amman BR, Sealy TK, et al.

first_imgGobernador Wolf: Pennsylvania redujo la población carcelaria a un récord de 3,471 desde el 1 de marzo Criminal Justice Reform,  Español,  Prison Reform El Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció que desde el 1 de marzo, la población de personas en centros correccionales estatales se ha reducido a 3,471, la mayor disminución de varios meses jamás experimentada por el Departamento de Correcciones, lo que probablemente ayudó al departamento a reducir la cantidad de casos de COVID-19 en los centros.“Cuando llegó la COVID-19, el Departamento de Correcciones de Pennsylvania se enfrentó al reto de mantener al público en general a salvo al tiempo que protegía a su población de reclusos de esta enfermedad fácilmente transmisible”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “El departamento ha tenido éxito en evitar que la COVID-19 se propague ampliamente en los entornos de convivencia de los centros correccionales”.En los más de tres meses desde que la COVID-19 se identificó por primera vez en Pennsylvania, menos del 1% de la población carcelaria del estado ha dado positivo. En última instancia, hasta ahora, los reclusos dentro de los centros correccionales estatales han demostrado estar más a salvo de la COVID-19 que la población general, donde la tasa de mortalidad es 90% más alta que en los centros correccionales estatales hasta el día de hoy.La reducción de la población carcelaria incluye el traspaso de las personas en libertad condicional de los centros a los planes domiciliarios; trabajar con la junta de libertad condicional para maximizar las liberaciones mediante libertad condicional; revisar las detenciones con libertad condicional de los que están en cárceles del condado y superaron sus condenas mínimas; e implementar el programa de suspensión temporal que ha permitido al Gobernador Wolf emitir suspensiones a 159 reclusos durante la pandemia.Estas liberaciones se suman a los esfuerzos preexistentes de realizar una reforma de la justicia penal que han reducido la población carcelaria de Pennsylvania de 48,881 reclusos cuando el Gobernador Wolf asumió el cargo a principios de enero de 2015 a 41,738 reclusos el día de hoy. Esa disminución de 7,143 en la población en menos de cinco años ha permitido al estado reducir los costos de los contribuyentes al cerrar los centros penitenciarios al tiempo que permite que más residentes de Pennsylvania reanuden sus vidas, todo sin aumentar la tasa de delitos del estado.“El Departamento de Correcciones se enorgullece de su capacidad de mantener seguros a los reclusos y continuará priorizando la salud y el bienestar durante la crisis de COVID-19”, dijo el Secretario del DOC, John Wetzel. “Continuaremos buscando mejorar nuestro sistema de justicia penal para minimizar el número de personas encarceladas mientras brindamos el mayor grado de seguridad a todos los residentes de Pennsylvania”.Pennsylvania ha adoptado un enfoque bipartidista para la reforma de la justicia penal y en los últimos años ha realizado lo siguiente:• Aprobó Reinversión en justicia 2 para abordar el alto costo del encarcelamiento en el estado, fortalecer el apoyo a los programas de libertad condicional de los condados y establecer guías sobre sentencias inadecuadas, y reformar el sistema de justicia penal posterior al juicio.• Creó una política de contratación justa para los organismos estatales que elimina la pregunta sobre las condenas penales, también conocida como “eliminar la casilla“, de las solicitudes de empleo del servicio no civil de los organismos bajo la jurisdicción del Gobernador.• Firmó el proyecto de ley “Pizarra limpia”, el primero de su tipo en la nación, para ayudar a aquellos que han cometido delitos de bajo nivel y han pagado su pena a volver a su camino con un historial libre de manchas, eliminando los posibles obstáculos para obtener trabajo, vivienda, atención médica y educación.• Firmó la Ley 95 de 2018, que elimina las suspensiones de la licencia de conducir por infracciones que no se relacionen con el manejo.• Firmó la Ley 146 de 2018, que extiende el tiempo que tiene una persona condenada que presentar una medida de alivio posterior a la condena a un año, en vez de los 60 días según la ley actual.• Firmó la Ley 147 de 2018, que actualiza la ley de pruebas de ADN de Pennsylvania y refleja avances significativos en tecnología y las lecciones aprendidas por los profesionales de la justicia penal desde 2002. La legislación elimina el requisito de supervisión de que solo las personas que cumplen una condena pueden solicitar una prueba de ADN.• Firmó la Ley 148 de 2018, un proyecto de ley de protección a las víctimas con respecto a opciones de vivienda y traslados de emergencia.Encuentre más información sobre la respuesta de Pennsylvania a la COVID-19 aquí.Encuentre más información sobre el proceso de reapertura de Pennsylvania del Gobernador Wolf aquí.View this information in English.

first_imgNick Ryle uses energy stored in the Tesla Powerwall to recharge the Mland BMW i3 electric car at Harris Crossing Display Village. Picture: Shae Beplate.Does the thought of scrounging up the money to pay your energy account fill you with dread? If you live in Harris Crossing, those budget-blowing bills could be a thing of the past.Maidment Development Group, the developer behind Harris Crossing, is offering home buyers the option to install a Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery System for a fraction of the normal retail price.“Purchasing your new home at Harris Crossing not only means you’ll be building your future in Townsville’s newest premium estate, you’ll also have access to state-of-the-art technology that allows you to generate, store and use your own power, making skyrocketing energy bills a thing of the past,” said Nick Ryle, sales and marketing manager of Maidment Development Group.With an average of over 300 days of sunshine per year, Townsville is the perfect place to harness the sun’s energy.Yet without a Tesla Powerwall, solar users are limited to daylight hours to make the most of the energy produced by the sun.With a Tesla Powerwall, however, the storage system enables you to capture and store excess solar energy produced during the day for use at night, so consumers can enjoy the energy-saving advantages of the unit 24/7. In a great coup for Townsville, the Harris Crossing display village features the largest installation of Tesla Powerwall 2 in the country. “We are ahead of our southern counterparts and leading the way in the solar home battery technology revolution. This is the culmination of a lot of hard work from local suppliers and our partnering display village builders, who have come together to help put Townsville on the map,” said Nick.

Cindy and Dan Mead in the home they renovated in Mitchelton. Image: AAP/Steve Pohlner.DIY home renovators Cindy and Dan Mead are living the dream.After renovating two Brisbane properties on a tight budget and flipping them for a profit, the young couple have just bought the home they have always wanted.But while the television shows make it look easy, their latest project in Mitchelton was no walk in the park for two people working full-time and determined to meet a 12-week deadline.“We’d finished the first renovation and sold it and were specifically looking for something similar but in the next price bracket — something a bit bigger,” Mrs Mead said.“We went to view another property and the agent said; ‘Have you been down the road to Elbury Street to see this one?’ and we hadn’t looked at it because we thought the price was a little high.“So we drove past and noticed the price had dropped since it had listed a week before, so we had a look through and put an offer in and got it straight away.” AFTER: The entrance and front porch of the house after the renovation.Mrs Mead said the only advice she would give wannabe DIY renovators was to be prepared to put in the hard work to achieve a long-term goal.“People have joked; ‘How did the marriage survive a renovation?’ and we’ve done it twice!” she said.“If anything, it just makes you stronger because you know how hard it was.“At the time, you think; ‘Why have we signed up for this?’ but it’s definitely all worthwhile in the end.” AFTER: The kitchen in the house after the renovation.“We didn’t skimp on the kitchen,” she said.“We wanted quality finishes and materials.”The finished kitchen is modern and practical with Quantum Quartz stone bench tops, quality appliances such as an induction cooktop and pyrolytic oven, soft close cupboards and drawers and an island breakfast bar.Sliding doors in the kitchen and dining area open out to an elevated timber deck with direct access to the backyard.There are three bedrooms — all with ceiling fans and built-in robes. The bathroom comes with a freestanding bathtub. AFTER: The front of the house after the renovation.It helped that Mr Mead worked in the commercial construction industry and had a lot of friends with trades under their belts. “We were fortunate in that we had really great contractors to rely on — good friends and people we know in the industry — and I think we’d learnt from our first reno how to project manage and time it all,” Mrs Mead said.“We also found we got the job done faster with local, smaller suppliers.”The couple moved out during the renovation, which motivated them to complete the project quicker.“We were, at the time, paying two mortgages because we owned another property, plus renting so the timeframe of 12 weeks was financially driven,” Mrs Mead said. AFTER: The back of the house after the renovation.“Dan and I did all the painting, he did all the tiling.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago“He did a marvellous job even though it nearly broke him spending weekend after weekend tiling!”Mrs Mead said they only hired professionals to do some of the work.“We had a plasterer, electrician, plumber and cabinet maker come in, but we did everything else ourselves, including the demolition, so we saved a lot of money by rolling up our sleeves,” she said.Mrs Mead said the kitchen was the greatest expense because they could not do much themselves and they did not want to compromise on quality. AFTER: The back deck on the house after the renovation.The Meads have now settled in to their new home — a large character Queenslander — in Alderley, where they are about to undertake their third home renovation.“Combined with the profit from our first renovation, we’ve literally just bought our dream home and we wouldn’t have been able to do that had we not renovated two properties,” Mrs Mead said.“It was worth the hard work and the blood, sweat and tears to get there.” BEFORE: The front of the house before the renovation.

AFTER: The living room in the house after the renovation.The original property was tidy and charming, but needed a total overhaul.“We completely gutted the house,” Mrs Mead said.“There was nothing left — no electrical wiring, no walls, no ceilings, we basically worked with a shell so that was exciting.”They managed to finish the rebuild in 11 weeks and did not go much over their budget of $80,000.“It was mental because we both work full-time and long hours,” Mrs Mead said. AFTER: The bathroom of the house after the renovation.Downstairs, a multiple purpose room can be used as a fourth bedroom. There is also a large, undercover area that could serve as an all-weather play space for the kids, a gym or yoga space or teenage retreat.

first_imgBY SUSAN L. CONLU, T-III – Jagnaya National High School Even though, if the situation had lightened, educational institutions should be more adaptive to the pandemic forces. Thus, new methods of teaching should be imposed along with new accessible platforms.(Contributed article) But not every student has access to computer that can be used to learn remotely. That’s where the problem lies. If the situation with coronavirus had yet to be resolved, normal schooling will be postponed again. AS the world struggles to combat the coronavirus pandemic, many organizations have been put at a standstill. Businesses were stopped, travel was restricted and education was discontinued.center_img That leaves us thinking about the alternatives to education. In the advent of newer, more accessible technology, the first thing that would come to mind is using e-learning. Governments obviously need to find ways to handle students’ continuous learning in the midst of the pandemic. However, face-to-face interaction is extremely unlikely due to the rapid spread of the illness.last_img read more

first_imgThis year’s Final Four met almost all the expectations that experts predicted it would.  The one noticeable flaw in all of their predictions was that Kentucky did not play in the final game.  The tournament itself gave us one terrific game (Wisconsin vs. Kentucky), one very good game (Duke vs. Wisconsin), and one less than exciting contest (Michigan State vs. Duke).If you were rooting for Duke, you got your wish and another NCAA championship.  It was Duke’s first win contested in Indianapolis after they had lost the previous 3 championships there.   After Wisconsin defeated Kentucky, most people felt the Badgers would go on and become the National Champions.  Their nearly perfect play and composure shown during the entire tournament suddenly left them in the last 5 minutes of the Duke game.  Of course, give Duke most of the credit for this because they ratcheted up their pressure defense and caused Wisconsin all kinds of problems.We all now have to wait 11 months until March Madness comes again.last_img read more
