first_imgMay 14, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesia’s health ministry reported today that a 26-year-old pregnant woman who died 2 days ago tested positive for H5N1 avian flu, making her the country’s second fatality in as many weeks.The woman, who was 4 months pregnant, died at a hospital in Medan in North Sumatra, a health ministry official identified as Joko told Agence France Presse (AFP).Her death brings Indonesia’s fatality count to 76, Joko told AFP. From Indonesia’s recent reports, the total number of H5N1 cases appears to be 96, including the 26-year-old woman and a 29-year-old woman who died May 3, also at a hospital in Medan.The World Health Organization (WHO) has not included any Indonesian cases in its H5N1 count since the country stopped sharing H5N1 virus samples with the agency at the end of 2006. The WHO lists 81 cases with 63 deaths for Indonesia, out of a global total of 291 cases with 172 deaths; Indonesia leads the world in the number of deaths.The health ministry confirmed the woman’s case after a second set of tests came back positive for the H5N1 virus, AFP reported.The patient, who was thought to have eaten chickens that died of avian flu, became ill on May 2 and was treated at home before she was transferred to two different hospitals, the AFP report said.Twenty other patients are undergoing treatment for suspected H5N1 infections at various hospitals in Indonesia, Joko told AFP.In other avian flu news, animal-health officials in Bangladesh yesterday reported more H5N1 outbreaks in poultry, this time in a village near Nilphamari, about 250 miles northwest of Dhaka, the capital, Reuters reported today. The fresh outbreaks at small farms prompted villagers to cull about 15,000 chickens over the last few days, the report said.M. M. Kahn, a technical adviser to the Bangladesh Poultry Association, told AFP 2 days ago that the avian flu situation in poultry was “very grave” because some farmers were not reporting outbreaks or were trying to cover them up.”The flu is no longer confined to farms. Recently it infected domestic birds and fowls and there’s a real danger it could infect humans” in the heavily populated country, Khan told AFP.Government spokesman Abdul Motalib said the situation was not yet grave, but he acknowledged the nation was having trouble combating the outbreaks because of limited resources and staffing, the AFP report said.Bangladesh reported its first H5N1 outbreak in poultry in late March. Since then, Motalib said, H5N1 has hit 40 farms in 11 districts and has led to the culling of 151,000 birds, AFP reported.Meanwhile, officials across the border in India said today that dead poultry and ducks in two Indian states have tested negative for avian flu, Reuters reported. One of the farms that reported poultry deaths was in the eastern state of West Bengal in the village of Matigara, which borders Bangladesh.Upma Chawdhry, an official with India’s animal husbandry department, told Reuters that countrywide monitoring was continuing, with a focus on areas bordering countries that have reported poultry outbreaks.In Vietnam, a veterinary official from Nghe An, the central province where H5N1 virus resurfaced in poultry in early May, reported a new flu outbreak yesterday, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported. About 1,900 ducks from three households were found dead on May 9, an animal-health official who requested anonymity told Xinhua. Samples from the dead birds tested positive for an H5 virus, the source said.Vietnam experienced a rash of outbreaks in December and January in several Mekong Delta and central provinces, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).Vietnam has had 93 human H5N1 cases and 42 deaths, but no human cases have been reported since November 2005, according to the World Health Organization.See also:OIE reports on 2007 Vietnamese poultry outbreakslast_img read more

first_imgJust yesterday, the announcement promotional video of Rijeka 2020 was published and see what the Port of Diversity of Rijeka 2020 looks like in a promo video. The concept of the city of Rijeka that brought the title is based on themes Rada, Diversity i Vode united in an umbrella theme Luka. The term “port” in the context of the ECOC is transferred to all spheres of urban life in which it can play a crucial symbolic or real role in the life of the citizens of Rijeka. The port is traditionally perceived as a shelter, but also a venue for the exchange of goods and international communication. The desired “cargo” that ships will deliver to the port in 2020 are artistic, creative, innovative products that arrive in Rijeka from all over the world, just as they are sent from Rijeka to other ports. As they point out from Rijka 2020, they see the port as a theme in a broad, metaphorical sense of connecting and creating a “free zone” for artistic experimentation, both in traditional and new formats and media. “We live a peer to peer digital culture in which we can be a “pirate” port, but also a startup risk port. The first is more democratic, and the second is more profitable, but all forms of cultural activities of the future must have the opportunity to coexist in Nova Luka called Rijeka ”  Together with the notion of Luka, the themes of Labor, Diversity and Water form a narrative about the peculiarities of the city, its past, present and future and represent values ​​deeply woven into the historical identity of Rijeka, both literally and metaphorically. At the same time, they reflect the foundations of the European Union: multiculturalism, diversity, respect for diversity, openness to dialogue and cooperation. Regardless of political will and democratic tradition, these values ​​are, of course, not guaranteed once and for all. On the contrary, precisely because of the real and constant danger of them being endangered, especially in the circumstances of a long-lasting economic crisis, they should be defended by reflection, evaluation and representation from an artistic and cultural perspective. These determinants of Port, Labor, Diversity and Water should serve not only as a starting point for the story of our city and its connection with Europe, but also to ask extremely important and urgent issues such as the position and future of work and workers, work as art and art as work, endangerment of water as a resource, questioning our and European multiculturalism and interculturality. Read the full concept and program of the candidacy herecenter_img In 2020, various cultural events and art events will be held in the selected city throughout the year, which should certainly contribute to increasing the number of visitors to the city and raise the level of interest in culture in the local community. Along with Rijeka as the Croatian Capital of European Culture 2020, there will also be an Irish city, and the program of the event is traditionally announced two months before the event. Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture is a project by which Rijeka wants to improve the scope and diversity of cultural offer in the city, expand access and participation in culture, strengthen the capacity of the cultural sector and its links with other sectors and increase international visibility and profile of the city and region. last_img read more

first_img“I feel like football’s values have won. For every employee, those in the academy, professional players, it’s extraordinary because they are people and families who were scared they would lose their jobs,” Amiens president Bernard Joannin told AFP.“It’s a big satisfaction, I always said the league’s decision was unfair and incoherent.”The decision to call the season off with 10 rounds of matches unplayed followed an announcement by the French government that football could not restart because of the health crisis.The judge also ordered the LFP to re-examine with the French football federation the proposed format for the top division next season, which could feature 22 teams in Ligue 1 – two more than usual.Amiens and Toulouse argued their relegation from the top-flight was “unjust and “arbitrary” while Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas was the leading voice against the decision to end the season early.Lyon, who have reached this season’s Champions League last 16, were left seventh in the table and outside the European qualification places when the season was halted.Paris Saint-Germain were declared champions for the seventh time in eight years.“The decision to proceed to final standings in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 doesn’t necessarily lead, by itself, to the relegation to Ligue 2 of the bottom two in Ligue 1, nor the promotion to Ligue 1 of the top two in Ligue 2,” the court ruling said.The league ranked teams by the ratio of points won to games played, but that did not change any of the placings in the final table.Toulouse, bottom for many months and with only three wins and 13 points from 28 games, were 14 points from potential safety.Read Also: Manchester City confirm Juanma Lillo appointmentAmiens were 10 points better off, but still four points away from the lifeline of a play-off spot.Lorient and Lens were promoted in their place, while the usual promotion and relegation play-offs were ditched.
