Views, sun, sea and cow pasture lies to the south. To the north a dense forest. In addition, the plot is completely flat and lacks trees as it was former was a cow pasture. Exploiting the view is obvious but architecture should deal with more than that and let its inhabitants be able to interact with their environment.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!Courtesy of Leo QvarseboSave this picture!SectionThe house is a bit like a treehouse for adults.

WHO warns against steroids for H5N1 patients

first_imgApr 20, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – In the wake of a clinical conference, the World Health Organization (WHO) has modified its recommendations on treatment for patients with H5N1 avian influenza by strengthening a warning against corticosteroids and suggesting the option of using higher doses of oseltamivir in some cases, among other advice.The meeting, held in Antalya, Turkey, Mar 19 to 21, brought together clinicians, virologists, epidemiologists, and others to share their observations and unpublished data on treatment of H5N1 patients, the WHO said in a statement yesterday.Since the last clinical conference of its kind was held in Hanoi in May 2005, eight more countries have reported human H5N1 infections, the WHO said. The current WHO global avian flu count is 291 cases with 172 deaths in 12 countries, from Indonesia to Egypt and Nigeria. The disease is fatal in humans about 60% of the time.In previous treatment advice in May 2006, the WHO warned against routine use of corticosteroids except in the context of randomized trials. In its new statement, the agency said corticosteroids have not been effective, “and prolonged or high-dose corticosteroids can result in serious adverse effects in H5N1 patients, including opportunistic infections. Corticosteroids should not be used routinely, except for persistent septic shock with suspected adrenal insufficiency.”In line with the meeting discussions, the WHO offered these additional conclusions about treating H5N1 patients:Early treatment with oseltamivir (Tamiflu), recommended as the first-line medication for H5N1 infections, is useful for reducing mortality, and treatment is warranted even when the drug is started late, because evidence suggests prolonged virus replication.Modified regimens of oseltamivir treatment, including two-fold higher dosage, longer duration, and possibly combination therapy with amantadine (in countries where the H5N1 virus is susceptible to the drug), “may be considered on a case-by-case basis,” especially in patients who have pneumonia or worsening disease.Antibiotic prophylaxis should not be used. However, antibiotics are appropriate for the initial treatment of patients who have pneumonia, using evidence-based guidelines for treating community-acquired pneumonia. When possible, microbiologic studies should guide antibiotic use in H5N1 patients.Therapy for H5N1-associated acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) should follow evidence-based guidelines for treating sepsis-associated ARDS and should involve mechanical ventilation with low tidal volume.The advance release of WHO’s updated clinical guidance comes as researchers from Southeast Asia and the United States are launching a study to determine if doubling the standard dose of oseltamivir will improve its effectiveness against H5N1 influenza or severe seasonal flu. As reported previously, the researchers, part of the Southeast Asia Influenza Clinical Research Network, hope to enroll 400 patients in the study over the next 2 years.The WHO first mentioned combining oseltamivir with amantadine therapy in its last treatment guideline update in May 2006. It said clinicians should use oseltamivir as first-line treatment but should consider adding one of the older antiviral drugs, amantadine or rimantadine, to the regimen if surveillance suggests local H5N1 strains are susceptible to them.That recommendation was based on data showing that some strains of H5N1, mostly those from China and Indonesia, were susceptible to the older drugs.In its statement yesterday, the WHO urged clinicians who modify current antiviral drug regimens to keep detailed records on the treatment and response.A more detailed report from the meeting will be published later in a scientific journal as updated WHO recommendations on H5N1 clinical management, the WHO said.See also:Apr 19 WHO summaryMar 29 CIDRAP News article “International network to study high-dose Tamiflu”May 22, 2006, CIDRAP News article “WHO sees role for older antivirals in some H5N1 cases”last_img read more

Michael Jordan acknowledges birth of new ‘Crying Jordan’ meme during Kobe Bryant’s memorial service

first_imgOn Monday, the world mourned as a memorial service for Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles. But the tears, tributes and honors paused for a brief moment when another basketball icon delivered some laughs to the more than 20,000 in attendance.As Michael Jordan took the podium to discuss Bryant — someone he viewed as a younger brother — Jordan broke down into tears. The NBA legend didn’t use the moment to mourn further, but rather as a way to bring a bit of levity to the service. “That is what Kobe Bryant does to me,” he said.Jordan, of course, is referencing the viral “Crying Jordan” meme, which was originally conceived after Jordan was moved to tears during his Pro Basketball Hall of Fame induction in 2009.The image of Jordan’s crying face from that night has been edited on the faces of people all over the internet for the better part of the last decade. Michael Jordan jokes about the Crying Jordan meme pic.twitter.com/9KpSdSg3qg— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) February 24, 2020MORE: Powerful moments and tributes from Kobe’s memorial service”I told my wife I wasn’t going to do this because I didn’t want to see that [crying meme] for the next 3 or 4 years.”He stopped, as the crowd erupted in applause and laughter at his acknowledgment of the meme.last_img read more

CAMINETTO UP TO WIN $60,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE BY A HEAD; SHAH, GARCIA & BAFFERT TEAM FOR SIX FURLONG WIN IN 1:08.87

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (June 18, 2015)–Kaleem Shah’s Caminetto wore down favored Cherubim late to take Thursday’s $60,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita by a head under Martin Garcia. Trained by Bob Baffert, Caminetto got six furlongs in 1:08.87.Breaking from post position seven in a field of eight three year olds and up, Caminetto rallied four-wide turning for home and was just up to win on the money.“When we got to the stretch, he just decided to take off,” said Garcia. “He’s learning more. Before, he was a run-off type horse and now he’s more mature and he’s more fit.Second at the same allowance condition last out on May 21, Caminetto was off as the 5-2 second choice and paid $7.40, $3.40 and $2.80. A 6-year-old gelding by Stormy Atlantic, he improved his record to 8-3-3-1 and with the winner’s take of $36,000, hiked his earnings to $150,650.“I figured he’d be a little closer to the early lead, but then I looked at the time and they were going 21, 43…The way it worked out, I think it was better where we were, actually,” said Baffert assistant Jim Barnes, who returned to Santa Anita this morning along with Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah. “We had to get up pretty early this morning in Louisville, because we had to get a horse out early to fly to Ohio. It’s great to be back home.”Ridden by Tiago Pereira, Cherubim angled inside eventual third place finisher Heir of Storm going to the quarter pole, took command a furlong out and finished 3 ¼ lengths clear of Heir of Storm. Off at 8-5, Cherubim paid $3.20 and $2.40.Ridden by Gary Stevens, Heir of Storm, who set the early pace, finished 1 ½ lengths in front of Drover Crazy for third money. Off at 9-2, Heir of Storm paid $2.80 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.45, 43.97 and 55.95.First post time on Friday at Santa Anita is at 4 p.m. Admission gates open for simulcasting at 11 a.m.last_img read more

Laurie Foster: Race for Olympics heating up

first_imgThe traditional magic and mystique of Olympic year is once again raring its attractive head. With just about nine weeks to go for the National Championships (Trials), already, a few athletes are positioning themselves, drawing for their bow and taking aim. The bullseye is a seat on the plane to the widely acknowledged ultimate in sports participation, officially known as the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in the Brazilian city of Rio. For this blessed nation, with the eye-catching attraction of the sports’ world-governing body, the professional circuit, yet unfolded, promises of spectacular performances are rife. After missing two World Championships through troubling injury, Yohan Blake has stormed back. He has publicly dropped a name that identified him as a monstrous and despicable creature, which he is not. The former St Jago High School sprinter and current national under-20 record holder (10.11+1.2) blasted a then 100m world-leading 9.95 legal at the UTech-MVP Classic on April 16. It stands as arguably the most compelling boost of confidence and satisfaction levels for a country trying to put its best feet forward leading into the great spectacle in the South American continent this August. EARLY DAYS Downgrade the Blake impact a bit to Simone Facey’s 11.00 at the Tom Jones Memorial last weekend. This, too, must be a morale strengthener to an athlete who has been constantly flogged in more recent times by many she considered to be her inferior in junior track. The 2009 Berlin WC 4x100m gold medallist has sent an early indication of her path to Rio. The mark will earn her lanes at the very top of the competition ladder where there is no dodging by the world’s fastest as exists with the other gender. Yet, it is early days and one is not aware of the quality or sustainability of her programme. Suffice it to say, in the absence of this knowledge, to the fringe-based honours suspects at Trials: “Watch out, VCB, Sherone (Simpson), Kerron (Stewart) and company, Simone might have been sleeping, but is now fully awake.” The advance of the nation’s throwing programme cannot escape mention in a Rio context. Foster’s Fairplay will continue to carry the flag for coaches/pioneers of excellence in that traditionally ignored area. Julian Leonard Robinson and Michael Vassell have torched the consciences of the movers and shakers of the sport in the local arena. Their charges have been crashing parties in both genders. The new, and much appreciated by a few, wellness in discus and shot put is contagious. It has spread to the Edwin Allen and Petersfield High school models. Foster’s Fairplay, on that limited mention, is hearing legitimate calls reminiscent of the soul classic by the group Champagne – “How about us?” Yes, the template has extended to other camps. However, the point to be made is that the world scene has been invaded in these hitherto peripheral disciplines and the two coaches mentioned can take a proverbial bow. As MVP’s Paul Francis, himself part of a game-changing group, said on Facebook recently, words to the effect of: “Why stop at the World Junior level? Go for the Olympics.” Let us then see if the throwing contingent of (Odayne) Richards, (Jason) Morgan, (Federick) Dacres, (Traves) Smikle and company can inspire the new discus national Under-20 record holder and Vassell-conditioned Shanice Love to reach for Rio. With all that jockeying for team selection in store, the fans’ taste buds are already well moistened. The intensity of the Diamond League and all that it brings to the fore will only be more enticing and threatens to sweeten the competition brew even further. Looking at the pending action, on field and track, one learned critic, referring to the Jamaica Trials, opined: “It will be like a mini-Olympics. Another, speaking in less ornate terms, confided: “It nah guh normal.” Foster’s Fairplay believes that those predictions could fall short at crunch time, June 30 to July 3.
