first_img“And then he will report if he sees adult mosquitoes and another crew will go out at night to do adulticiding around that neighborhood,” Unlu says. Heavy rainfall throughout South Florida in recent weeks has created a breeding ground for disease-spreading insects.The Miami-Dade County Department of Health announced Thursday that two more residents have been infected with West Nile virus, bringing that county’s total to four cases for the year so far.There are currently no reported cases in Broward or Palm Beach, but the presence of the mosquitoes that carry West Nile and Dengue fever is of concern to officials.“It’s a problem when we have encephalitis, which is a swelling of the brain,” says Dr. Isik Unlu of Miami-Dade mosquito control. “That’s the part that is scary.”Ahn Ton of Broward mosquito control adds, “The type of mosquito that carries that type of virus is prevalent in our area and already we’re seeing them popping up around our area.”There is no evidence that suggests the mosquitoes can spread COVID-19, according to the World Health Organization, since coronavirus is a respiratory virus that spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose, not from blood.“Right now, on average, we’re getting about 300-400 requests a day,” Ton explains. “During the slow season, just to put it in perspective, just a couple of months ago we were getting 20-30 requests a day.”With more than 250 calls a day, Miami-Dade’s mosquito control teams are also trying to kill larvae before they hatch. Adulticiding is the term used for killing adult mosquitoes.Officials add that people need to protect themselves by getting rid of standing water and avoiding the outdoors during peak hours from sunrise to sunset. If you must be outside, try to wear protective clothing and use mosquito repellent.Health Department Confirms Second Case of West Nile Virus in Miamilast_img read more

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |SHREWSBURY – Can we do more to impact the community in a positive way?This is the question David Levy posed when he accepted the role of president at the Guild of Creative Arts (GCA), as he considered how the 58-year-old nonprofit artist cooperative at 620 Broad St. could influence and extend its reach.For Levy, the GCA was more than a celebrated showroom or heralded hub of creativity for local artists developing ideas.The facility presented Levy a platform, and what’s more, an opportunity, to make the artistic experience accessible to all who sought it, a notion that led him to establish The Docent Program.“Our mission at the Guild is to advance excellence in the visual arts, but our vision is to reach out to everyone in our community, especially the underserved populace, including those with disabilities, and ignite or rekindle their love of art,” Levy said on Tuesday, while prepping the GCA’s Feb. 11 reception for its current Exhibiting and Associate Show, an exhibition that runs until Feb. 27 and features the work of the cooperative’s most prominent artists.According to Levy, The Docent Program, which focuses on the observation of art pieces and emphasizes analysis, evaluation and higher-order thinking skills, caters to the developmental and cognitive needs of elementary school-aged students, as well as children and adults with special needs and senior citizens with cognitive or physical disabilities.Since founding The Docent Program in 2013, Levy has witnessed firsthand the benefits such an offering can provide to the surrounding special needs community, which is why he finds it troubling that funding for the arts has come under fire in recent years.“Art is for everyone and is something that enriches lives,” said Levy, a former college professor of art history, as well as an instructor of gifted and talented students and an enrichment teacher for students with special needs.“There are so many reasons why it’s worthwhile, and for kids especially, it shows that art activities stimulate various parts of their developing brain, which positively impacts other subject areas and aspects of their lives,” said Levy. “The arts are something worth fighting for.”While he remains steadfast in his fight for the preservation of arts education, Levy’s Docent Program continues to offer insight to those who wish to appreciate and interpret art pieces from the perspective of an artist, helping viewers gain a greater understanding of the creatives’ methods and what they hope to accomplish stylistically and affectively.“It was a goal of mine to help transform this into something more than a place to view art and take classes,” Levy said. “We wanted The Guild to be a community resource that could reach out and educate everyone. And this program is helping us do that.”This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

first_imgThe short-staffed Nelson Leafs exploded for five third-period goals en route to a 6-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Grand Forks Border Bruins Saturday night in the Boundary City.The win was the fifth consecutive for Nelson after the Leafs dropped three straight games earlier this month.Trailing 2-1 after 40 minutes, Nelson turned up the heat on the Bruins, firing 23 shots at Grand Forks netminder Dominic Stadnyk.The offensive push turned into goals as Aaron Dunlap, with his second of the game, Patrick Croome, Brandon Sookro and Austin Seaman, on the power play, scored to erase the one-goal deficit and give Nelson a 5-2 advantage.Mitch Pearson stopped the bleeding somewhat for Grand Forks with a goal to cut the margin to 5-3.But Carsen Willans, with this third goal of the weekend, restored the three-goal margin.Michael Rand and Ravinder Shokar also scored for Grand Forks.Nelson out shot the Bruins 55-31 making a winner out of goalie Brad Rebagliati. Nelson, 20-1-1-3 on the season, now lead Beaver Valley in Murdoch Division standings by 12 points after Nitehawks lost 6-1 in Osoyoos Saturday.The Bruins entered the game on a winning note after defeating Golden Rockets Friday in Grand Forks.Michael Rand and Franco Colapaolo each scored twice to the lead the Bruins. Lincoln Lane and Mitch Dolman added singles. Dominic Stadnyk registered the win in goal for the Bruins.Max Newman had three assists for the Bruins.Leafs rebound against BravesWith the bitter taste of a 4-3 overtime loss still resonating, Nelson built up 4-0 through two periods to down Spokane Braves 5-1 Friday in the Lilac City.Robson Cramer and Carsen Willans each scored twice to power the Leafs to the win.Brandon Sookro opened the scoring on the power play.Tanner Stolz scored the only goal for the Braves, out shot 52-27 by the Leafs.ICE CHIPS: Saturday’s roster for Nelson looked like a Commercial Hockey League pickup game as the Leafs were only able to ice 14 skaters. Missing from the roster were forwards Travis Wellman and Bryce Nielsen along with defencemen Robson Cramer and J.J. Beitel. Goalie Adam Maida, with a knee injury, was also not dressed. . . .Speedy winger Carsen Willans is finally found his goal scoring touch as the Nelson Minor Hockey product made it eight straight games with points. During the streak Willans has scored eight goals while adding 11 assists for 19 points.last_img read more

first_imgThe 2008 UNAids report provides revealing information about the global HIV/Aids epidemic. (Image: UNAids) The Aids ribbon emblazoned across the UN building in New York during the first special session of the General Assembly to discuss Aids, held in 2001, 20 years after the discovery of the disease. (Image: UNAids)Janine ErasmusIn a recent United Nations report on HIV/Aids, South Africa is named as one of three countries in the Southern African region where the HIV infection rate is stabilising. The other two are Malawi and Zambia. Overall, the biennial report, published on 29 July 2008 by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and Aids (UNAids), carries both positive and negative news in terms of the African situation.Sub-Saharan Africa remains the most heavily infected region in the world, according to the report. Of all people living with HIV in the world, 67% lived in sub-Saharan Africa, and of all the Aids-related deaths in the world, 75% of them occurred in sub-Saharan Africa in 2007. The number of people infected in 2007 grew by an estimated 1.9-million to around 22-million. While the infection rate in sub-Saharan Africa varies widely from country to country, the nine Southern African countries continue to bear the heaviest burden, accounting for 35% of all HIV infections and 38% of all Aids deaths in the world.The report also notes that in the region as a whole, infection among women is far greater than men, especially among the younger generation, although globally the incidence of women living with HIV has remained stable at 50% for a number of years.Heterosexual intercourse is still the major route of transmission in sub-Saharan Africa, but studies have shown that homosexual intercourse may play a more important role than previously thought. In East and Southern Africa drug use is another factor, with the infection passed on mainly through contaminated equipment.Despite the fact that South Africa still has more people living with HIV than any other country in the world, statistics indicate this number seems to be stabilising at 5.7-million. This is in line with the global trend.UNAids does specify, however, that the actual number of people living with HIV continues to grow because of ongoing new infections and increasing access to antiretroviral therapy, which prolongs life. For instance, Namibia’s treatment rate soared from 1% in 2003 to 88% in 2007.Young women most vulnerableNational statistics body Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) released its mid-year population statistics on 31 July 2008, putting the total population at 48.7-million and the estimated overall HIV prevalence rate at about 11%. Of this percentage, women between 15 and 49 years old form the largest group.Differing slightly from UNAids figures, Stats SA puts the HIV-positive population at approximately 5.35-million. The most vulnerable population group is young women between 15 and 24 years of age, as they account for more than 90% of new infections in South Africa.The epidemic in Malawi and Zambia has also reached a plateau, according to UNAids, but other Southern African countries are not as fortunate – Lesotho shows a higher HIV prevalence among pregnant women, while infections among young Mozambicans are on the rise and in some areas of that country 20% of the adult population is infected.However, UNAids studies reveal that the epidemic in Zimbabwe has declined sharply, especially among pregnant women attending antenatal clinics. In this category the infection rate dropped significantly from 26% in 2002 to 18% in 2006, and among young pregnant women aged between 15 and 24, infection fell from 21% to 14% over that same period. The major reason for this is the practice of safer sex, as is the case in Malawi and Zambia.Botswana also shows a lower rate of infection among young pregnant girls (15 to 19 years old), from 25% in 2001 to 18% in 2006, while figures for pregnant women in Angola show little change since 2004, indicating a possible stabilisation.A number of East and West African countries, where the epidemic is comparatively smaller, have seen a stabilisation and in some cases a reduction in the HIV infection rate. Among these are Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Nigeria, and Uganda. In Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, the epidemic shows signs of stabilising at 3.1%. More health-conscious behaviour, especially the use of condoms and more efficient prevention of transmission from mother to child, notably in Benin, are among the reasons for the downward trend.In a number of countries in Central and West Africa as well as the Horn of Africa, adult HIV prevalence dropped below 2% in 2007. However, this figure stands above 15% in seven Southern African countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe), and above 5% in seven other African countries (Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Gabon, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, and Tanzania). The worst-hit country is Swaziland, whose adult HIV prevalence of 26% is the highest in the world.Fighting HIV/Aids on a global scaleEstablished in 1994, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and Aids (UNAids) is a major driver in the fight against Aids and HIV on a global scale. The organisation’s mission is to lead, strengthen and support a multi-faceted response to HIV and Aids, which includes preventing transmission of HIV, providing care and support to those infected, reducing the vulnerability of individuals and communities to HIV and alleviating the impact of the epidemic.UNAids is based in Geneva, Switzerland. Belgian scientist, academic and activist Dr Peter Piot has headed the organisation since its inception.The UNAids Report on the Global Aids Epidemic is published every two years and draws on the best data available. The 2008 report gathered information from 147 countries measured against 25 core targets adopted in the 2001 United Nations Declaration of Commitment on HIV/Aids and, says UNAids, is the most comprehensive assessment of the international response to HIV ever undertaken.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Sadly, you can’t set any defaults for the editor, which means that – by default – it always wants to attach your location, for example. Photos and LinksThe app handles posts with photos beautifully. You just tap on the photos and they appear in full-screen mode. Photo sharing is one of Buzz’s best features and this app rightfully puts a lot of emphasis on making the photo browsing experience as seamless as possible. The way the app handles links takes some getting used to, though.Instead of just tapping on the link, you have to push the little paperclip icon at the bottom of the screen. That’s not a deal breaker, but it will surely confuse some people.VerdictGoogle is betting on HTML5 and web apps to deliver its products without having to go through the App Store approval process. Buzzie, however, shows that there are still some clear advantages to developing a native app. The app just feels a lot snappier than Google’s web app for Buzz and even though it doesn’t offer any new features, it makes using Buzz on the iPhone a lot more fun. A few features – like attaching photos to your posts or browsing the map for messages – are still missing, though chances are that the developers will add these in one of the next revisions. Hat tip to The Next Web for spotting the app first.

While the Buzz web app is very good, however, it can’t quite rival the speed and comfort of using a native iPhone app. Fiam‘s Buzzie is the first Buzz app for the iPhone ($1.99 – iTunes link) and even though it is still missing some features, it already gives us a good idea for what developers can achieve by using the Buzz API.
