first_imgMay 16, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Contaminated dry dog food contributed to a Salmonella outbreak that sickened at least 70 people in 19 states in 2006 and 2007, many of them babies, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today.An investigation of the outbreak—believed to be the first human Salmonella infections linked to dry pet food—was conducted by public health officials from Pennsylvania and other states, along with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Findings appear in today’s issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).News of the outbreak came to light in June 2007 when PulseNet, an electronic network for sharing molecular data, identified Salmonella enterica serotype Schwarzengrund infections from a handful of states that had indistinguishable pulse-field gel electrophoresis patterns, according to MMWR.Initial interviews of patients from Pennsylvania who were sickened by the outbreak strain suggested exposure to dogs or dry dog food; 8 (62%) owned one or more dogs, and the other 5 had regular contact with a dog.Dog stool samples and dry dog food collected from some of the homes also tested positive for the same S Schwarzengrund strain. The two dog food samples that tested positive for the outbreak strain were both produced at the same plant in Pennsylvania, though there were two different brands.The last reported illness onset date was October 2007. Most of the 70 confirmed cases were patients from Pennsylvania (29), New York (9), and Ohio (7). Of 61 patients for whom the age was known, 24 (39%) were age 1 or younger. Among 45 patients for whom hospitalization status was known, 11 (24%) were hospitalized, but no deaths were reported.A case-control study suggested that four dry pet food brands were associated with Salmonella illnesses, and all were produced at the same plant. A Sep 4, 2007, CDC update on the outbreak said the contaminated dry dog food brands were produced by Mars Petcare, headquartered in Nashville.On Aug 21, the company voluntarily recalled two of its products that in an environmental investigation yielded the outbreak strain. One was 5-lb bags of Krasdale Gravy dry dog food; the other was 50-lb bags of Red Flannel Large Breed Adult Formula dry dog food. However, MMWR reported that some of the brands that were linked to illnesses were not included in the recall.”Because dry pet food has a 1-year shelf life and all contaminated products were not recalled, contaminated dry pet food might still be found in homes and could provide the potential for causing illness,” the CDC reported.The CDC said that, although an S Schwarzengrund source was never identified at the pet food plant, equipment may have been contaminated, or tainted ingredients may have entered the plant. Though the production of dry pet food usually involves heat treatment as the product is made, it is usually sprayed with a flavor enhancer such as an animal fat.A spate of Salmonella outbreaks in humans has been connected to handling pet treats such as pig ears or food snacks, pet vitamins, and raw-food diets. However, the CDC said the S Schwarzengrund outbreak is the first to be associated with dry pet food.The CDC advises people to wash their hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds after handling dry pet food, treats, or supplements to avoid getting sick from contaminated pet food. It also advises keeping infants away from pet feeding areas and making sure young children don’t touch or eat the items.CDC.

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. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The French league (LFP) brought a premature end to the campaign in late April due to the coronavirus pandemic. France’s highest administrative court on Tuesday blocked the relegation of Amiens and Toulouse from Ligue 1 while rejecting Lyon’s appeal against the decision to declare the season over. Toulouse are one of two clubs who may be saved from relegation from France’s top football league The judge in the Council of State “validates the end of the season and the standings but suspends relegation”, read a statement summarising the ruling.Advertisementcenter_img Loading…last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 4, 2013 at 11:48 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 It’s a grueling stretch of the season for Syracuse. Away games, home games, then away games again. The Orange has finally played some close games, games against tough competition and games of different styles.It’s a stretch that’s yielded some losses, but also some memorable moments. And it continues Tuesday.“We’re in the midst of a few short turnarounds and we’ve just got to keep our bodies warm, keep moving, stay healthy,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said, “and I think that’s the most important thing.”When No. 24 Syracuse travels to Cincinnati on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. tipoff, it will be the Orange’s (18-3, 6-2 Big East) seventh game in the past three weeks. Every Saturday tip during the stretch has been followed by a quick turnaround on either Tuesday or Wednesday. On Tuesday against the Bearcats (8-13, 0-8), though, will be the first time a road game has followed a home tilt during the stretch.The quick turnaround also provides a quick change of styles. Saturday’s opponent, Providence, is a team that likes to push the pace. Cincinnati, on the other hand, slows the game down. The Bearcats rank at the bottom of the Big East with 52.7 points per game and, despite being win-less in the conference, sit in the middle of the pack in scoring defense, allowing 58 points per game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut none of that fazes SU. It just plays its style.“We’re looking to do the same thing night in and night out. We’re looking to play Syracuse basketball,” guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. “We’re looking to push the tempo, get offensive rebounds, look high-low and run our scheme, so regardless if the team plays faster or slower, we’re still going to do stuff the same way, we still look at it like another game.”For much of the season, the Orange has adjusted well. It has started slow at times, but has always found a way to pull out of its early game slumps. Both of the games Syracuse has lost during this recent stretch came against teams that received votes in The Associated Press Top 25 Poll. Those aren’t the games the Orange is worried about.It’s the slow starts against Seton Hall and the Friars. Games in which SU should be in control throughout, but often doesn’t take over until the end of the first half.“When we play down to the level of our competition, or we play to the level of Providence or any other team, we’re not being ourselves. It’s tough for us to play,” Tyson-Thomas said. “But when we bring Syracuse basketball to the table we do very good.”Depth and defense have let the Orange play the way it wants.Even with three players, including two rotation staples, sidelined against the Pirates, SU played 11 different players. Back at full strength against PC, Syracuse played 14 players. Nine played more than five minutes.“We can put five in, five out any time on the floor and because we’ve been able to do that, that’s a really good team,” Tyson-Thomas said.Syracuse held SHU to 34 points last week. The defense forced 27 turnovers against the Friars and grabbed 13 steals in the first half alone. Even the interior defense shined. SU center Kayla Alexander blocked four shots, accounting for more than half of the Orange’s six rejections.“Defense played a big role in that, too,” Alexander said after Syracuse’s win against PC. “ … Defense momentum leads to offense, too.”Cincinnati should provide the Orange a chance to do more of the same. The Bearcats’ lowly offense should be stifled even more against a stellar SU press. Syracuse’s deep bench should once again carry it during a rigorous stretch.That is, as long as it controls the game.Said Hillsman: “I’m really happy with where we are and we’ve got to continue just to build on this season and build on it before we go and get ready against Cincinnati.” Commentslast_img read more

first_imgBlack Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has admitted that he could barely close his eyes and sleep on the night before leading the Black Stars to a 2-0 win against Malawi. ”It was not fear or worry or anything bad but I was just anxious and a little nervous that’s all”.In a revealing interview for the upcoming Sports Journal series on TV3, the former Udinese and Sunderland striker confessed that he has accepted his fate as an ”unpredictable” player. ”I give everything to God and whatever happens I have come to accept it”From villain to hero, Gyan is rarely far away from incident and arresting headlines but he has no regrets – only useful lessons. ‘’I almost quit the national team in 2008 because of a few fans but you saw how the fans clapped and supported us today”Gyan’s management team led by ”King Sammy” also seem to have cracked the secret code for branding their prize asset with recent media and branding deals. But perhaps what will be the sweetest music to Ghanaians is the player’s firm belief that his finest moments in the game are ahead of him. With his trademark grin and wide eyed expression, Gyan has declared that his best form for the national team is yet to come.And who are we to doubt him? In 2003 the Al Ain forward was still in his teens when he was given his international debut by then Black Stars coach Ralf Zumdick. The player did not fluff his lines as he scored in the 90th minute of that game against Somalia.It could be that football fans did not see it coming; his colorful and sometimes chequered career so far, would make an interesting script for movie directors. After all, he was the youngest ever player to score for the Black Stars and followed with a string of match winning performances. ” That is me, I do not plan to go out there and score spectacular goals or miss chances or penalties. I want to be the best and just do what I have to do”. That statement may sound cliché but it is true that he scored four times in seven matches during the Black Stars maiden successful World Cup qualifying campaign in 2005/06.If you want controversy call Asamoah Gyan; Scoring from the penalty spot, having the goal disallowed, getting a yellow card and then missing the subsequent re-take? That was at Germany 2006 against the Czech Republic.If you want spine tingling magic, call Asamoah Gyan; The same player scored the fastest goal in that crazy World Cup in Germany against the unbeaten Europeans at the time.And talk of despair and you would not need to go far; just call Gyan as he hit the crossbar at South Africa 2010.With Gyan, having his cake and eating it is not impossible. Whether it is scoring on his debut as he did for Sunderland with a volley and a jig or smashing an extra time winner against USA, the player has pleaded with fans to take him as he is.That may not be asking too much because the check-list of good is far lengthier than bad and he smiles more than he broods. As captain of the Black Stars, the player insists he is only a caretaker of the heavy arm band that has been worn by other great ”A”s before him; his coach Akwasi Appiah, Abedi Pele, CK Akunnor, and Stephen Appiah to reference but a few.”I love life, people and I promise to do my best for the team and my country but it will not be easy that is why I always ask for support and prayers”In his first press conference as captain, we saw the other side of Gyan when he cleared his throat before asking Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi to jokingly give him a glass of water. Nyantakyi was quick to play his role saying ”…quick, give him water to drink, he will need it”For now, his music and dancing career has been put on hold as he also says the Boxing promotion syndicate he runs is also in transit.Like I said, it is only one match but better a good, cautious start than nothing at all. Who knows, after all that Gyan claims he has been through in his career and in his private life, he could be the man to lead the new look Black Stars to silverware and gold.last_img read more
