NewsRegional Sexual transmission of Zika more common than thought by: Caribbean 360 – June 2, 2016 59 Views no discussions Share Share Share Tweet Sharing is caring! NEW YORK, United States, Thursday June 2, 2016 (Caribbean 360) – Sexual transmission of the Zika virus has been found to be more common than initially thought, prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to update its advice to women who have visited areas impacted by the virus.The revised advice suggests that women abstain from sex, or use protection to delay conceiving, for at least eight weeks after they or their partner return from Zika-affected areas.On Tuesday, the WHO said that couples or women planning pregnancy “are strongly recommend to wait at least eight weeks before trying to conceive,” to ensure that their bodies were clear of the virus.The new recommendation doubles the abstinence period previously advised by the world health body.It was made after scientists found the virus lingers longer than previously thought in blood or other body fluids, according to WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier.If the male partner in a couple planning pregnancy has symptoms of the Zika virus, the period of safe abstinence should be six months, Lindmeier added.“People should practise safer sex or abstain for at least eight weeks if they are returning from Zika-affected areas,” he told reporters at a news briefing.“The previous recommendation suggested a period of at least four weeks, so we’re upping (it).”He added that the new guidelines “reflect what we have learned about Zika disease and its complications.”Asked if this new advice effectively amounted to a ban on pregnancies in Brazil, where the virus first appeared in the Americas a year ago, Lindmeier responded: “The guidance is to delay or consider delaying pregnancy, certainly recognizing that this is tough for some populations.”The WHO spokesman said scientists are still investigating how long the virus can be traced in saliva, but these tests have so far been inconclusive.“All this is being studied to see where else we find the virus and how long it remains there,” he said.The current outbreak of Zika has been strongly linked to microcephaly, a birth defect in which babies are born with abnormally small heads and severe brain damage, as well as other neurological conditions in adults including Guillain-Barre syndrome that can trigger paralysis.Scientists studying the outbreak in Brazil are becoming increasingly concerned that the virus may also be responsible for serious vision problems.
Share UWF Backcourt Trio Highlights All-GSC Team L-R: Amy Drake, Tiffany Williams, Sabrina Stambouli (jimhoguephotos.com) BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A West Florida trio of guards, including seniors Amy Drake (Niceville, Fla./Winthrop) and Tiffany Williams (St. Petersburg, Fla./North Florida) and freshman Sabrina Stambouli (Québec City, Québec/Dawson), highlighted the 2010 All-Gulf South Conference Women’s Basketball Team as announced by the conference office on Tuesday. Drake was a first team selection and Williams second team, while Stambouli was named GSC East Division Freshman of the Year.Drake earned an All-GSC first team selection in her senior season after a second team nod as a junior in 2008-09. Drake is the Argonauts’ first first team selection since they had three in 2005-06 and the team finished the year 23-7 and won the East Division title. Williams earns her first All-GSC honor this year, and both she and Drake were preseason All-GSC selections as well. Stambouli’s Freshman of the Year award is the third for the team in program history, with the other two being Tanya Aldridge (1995-96) and current senior Dominique Boykins (2006-07).Drake is one of the top guards in UWF women’s basketball history, and she has put together a tremendous season, leading the team with 16.4 points per game and ranking fifth in the conference. She is also in the top five in the conference in assists per game (third, 4.8), free throw percentage (first, .883), and three-point field goal percentage (third, .410). In the Argonauts’ game at Lambuth on February 20, Drake scored her 1,000th career point at UWF, becoming just the ninth player in school history to join the 1,000-point club.Williams has been a go-to player for the Argonauts this year, averaging 12.0 points per game while starting all 27. A preseason All-GSC selection, she is shooting .428 from the field and averaging 3.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. Williams had a successful run early in the season, winning MVP honors at the UWF Tip-Off Classic and the UWF Holiday Classic.Stambouli has been a big spark off the bench in her freshman season, averaging 7.1 points per game while playing just 19.1 minutes per contest. The Canadian sharpshooter is shooting .340 from three-point territory and is second on the team with 35 threes, and she is also 18-20 from the free throw line for a .900 mark. Stambouli also earned GSC East Division Player of the Week honors on January 13 after back-to-back 16-point performances in a pair of GSC wins for the Argonauts.UWF (14-13, 4-6 GSC) earned the No. 4 seed from the East Division and will meet with No. 7 Arkansas Tech in the first round of the GSC Tournament on Thursday, March 4 at 2:45 p.m. For information on all UWF Athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS#2010 ALL-GSC WOMEN’S BASKETBALL FIRST TEAMEAST DIVISIONPos Player School Year HometownF Latashia Greer UWA Jr. Dadeville, Ala.F Niala Harris UNA Jr. Chattanooga, Tenn.G Leschelle Matthews VSU Sr. Columbus, Ga.G Amy Drake UWF Sr. Niceville, Fla.G Candace Lee UAH Jr. Tanner, Ala.East Division Freshman of the Year—Sabrina Stambouli, West FloridaEast Division Players of the Year— Latashia Greer, West Alabama and Niala Harris, North AlabamaCoach of the Year—Kiley Hill, Valdosta StateWEST DIVISIONPos Player School Year HometownF Veronica Walker DSU So.

Nah, pernah terpikirkah oleh Anda kira-kira apa yang bakal terjadi ketika meng-upgrade kelas di sebuah penerbangan tanpa menghubungi pihak maskapai terlebih dahulu? Bukankah selama penerbangan kita bebas pindah tempat duduk, kecuali ketika take off dan landing?Baca Juga: Kreatif! Beginilah Cara Emirates Rangkul Penumpang yang Hendak ‘Seat Upgrade’Sebelum mendapatkan jawabannya, kelas bisnis dalam sebuah penerbangan menawarkan fasilitas lebih ketimbang kelas ekonomi. Seiring dengan fasilitas yang lebih banyak, maka harga tiket di kelas bisnis pun akan lebih tinggi dari kelas ekonomi. Dengan tujuan menghemat, inilah yang pada akhirnya membimbing para penumpang untuk lebih memilih kelas ekonomi dibanding bisnis, toh waktu sampainya juga berbarengan. Ya, kembali ke persoalan di atas, seorang awak kabin membocorkan kira-kira apa yang bakal terjadi ketika seorang penumpang ekonomi menghabiskan waktu perjalanan di bisnis. “Mungkin bagi sebagian penumpang, itu (pindah ke kelas yang lebih tinggi) merupakan halyang menyenangkan. Namun sebagai awak kabin, kami sama sekali tidak merasa itu merupakan hal yang lucu,” ujar salah satu cabin manager, Jay Roberts, dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman express.co.uk (11/11/2018).“Bangku-bangku di dalam penerbangan merupakan produk yang kami jual. Jadi ketika Anda berusaha duduk di bangku yang tidak semestinya, itu sama saja dengan mencuri,” imbuhnya singkat.Duh, nampaknya upaya untuk duduk di kelas yang lebih tinggi dalam suatu penerbangan bukanlah hal yang bisa dianggap remeh dan merujuk pada pernyataan Jay tadi.“Sembari Anda berjalan kembali ke bangku yang Anda sebenarnya, awak kabin akan berbicara dengan nada yang sangat keras sehingga semua penumpang di dalam kabin tahu bahwa Anda sedang dikawal dari kelas bisnis menuju kelas ekonomi bangku asli Anda,” jelas Jay mengenai konsekuensi yang sekiranya bakal Anda terima.Baca Juga: Jadi Penumpang Business Class di Boeing 777 Garuda Indonesia, Inilah yang Anda NikmatiTidak berhenti sampai di situ, pihak maskapai juga akan memasukkan nama Anda ke dalam watch list pada penerbangan selanjutnya. “Bahkan di sebagian maskapai, mereka akan dikenakan biaya tambahan kepada si penumpang yang bersangkutan.” tutup Jay.
Related Topics2019 Cleveland BrownsBaker MayfieldfeaturedMyles GarrettNick Bosa Spencer German Welcome back to the proverbial trash can, Cleveland. One week after a statement win over the Ravnes to take over first place in the AFC North, the Browns will find themselves right back in the trash come Tuesday morning following a 31-3 dismantling by the hands of the San Francisco 49ers.With the primetime lights shining on them for the third time in five weeks, the Browns were consmed by an avalanche of mistakes that started almost immediately. The defense was trampled to the beat of 275 rushing yards, coming from five different ball carriers. Matt Breida did most of the heavy lifting with 114 yards and a rushing and receiving touchdowns. The offense limped along throughout the night coming close to scoring on a few occasions but never actually reaching the end zone. It was an utter disaster and a game the Browns will want to quickly forget.If you can bear it, here are five takeaways…1) Disasterous Start Making their third appearance on primetime, national TV already this season the Browns had got off to the worst possible start imaginable. After going three-and-out to open the game, the 49ers answered with a one-and-done 83-yard touchdown run from Matt Breida who left everyone in the dust. Then the Browns second possession was over before it even started as pressure from Joey Bosa led to a Richard Sherman interception on a poor throw from Mayfield. The teams then exchanged three-and-outs before the 49ers scored their second touchdown of the night with 6:26 remaining in the first quarter. And then a DeForest Buckner strip sack on Mayfield gave them great field position to add to their lead again. Fortunately that drive ended with a missed field goal and kept the Browns in striking distance but those early issues snowballed into more later on: an Antonio Callaway drop that turned into a pick at the goal line,2) A primetime dudWhen the Browns were rewarded four primetime games this season, it was done with the belief that Cleveland was a playoff contender. With great expectations comes great responsibility and so far with three of their four primetime games out of the way, the Browns have dropped the ball. Instead of coming out of these nationally televised games hearing overtures of “the Browns are back” they’re hearing “same-ol-Browns.” That’s a little unfair because it’s pretty obvious that these aren’t the Browns of old. Thay have the talent and as they showed last week they can be dominant. But with an overhauled roster over the last few years and a first-year head coach there was going to be growing pains. It’s more likely that the Browns are caught somewhere in the middle of great and average. They’re are blips of greatness but far too many inconsistencies. Don’t get it twisted, these are not the same old Browns but that will be the narrative nationally until they prove otherwise on stages like Monday Night Football.3) O-line, Oh noJust when you thought the Browns offensive line was turning the corner they had the luxury of squaring off with one of the best constructed defensive lines in the game. Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead – pick your poison. The Browns offensive line was no match for that group. Buckner and Bosa shined brightest tonight for San Francisco as the former had one sack. Meanwhile, Bosa was unblockable racking up four QB hits, two sacks (it should have been three), and three tackles for a loss. He rubbed his dominance in Mayfield’s face by mocking his infamous planting of the flag at Ohio Stadium and hey, he earned the right to tonight. Simply put the Browns offensive line was owned on Monday night, yielding four total sacks to the 49ers defense. They were exposed and their woes in the trenches aren’t going away anytime soon. Anything short of a trade for Trent Williams won’t be enough to fix the O-line this season.4) Lucky No. 7Maybe the one bright spot of the night was Myles Garrett, who continued his personal quest for defensive player of the year with sack No. 7 on the season. Defensively it was the only thing that really went well for the Browns as Garrett moved into second place on the sack leaderboard. The D-line as a whole finished with two sacks on Jimmy G, against a San Francisco offensive line that had allowed only two entering Monday.5) Growing concern…No one was ready to throw in the towel on Baker Mayfield after an up and down first three games of the season. But five games in, after a pathetic eight-for-22, 100 yard and two interception outing, panic is starting to creep in. Not that social media should ever be used a measuring stick for the pulse of a fanbase but just search “Baker Mayfield” on Twitter and you’ll get a treasure trove of Mayfield slander. It’s probably still too soon to jump straight to “Mayfield is overrated and another Browns bust,” if you’re having doubts though no one can blame you. No one can really dispute the criticisms of Mayfield right now; that he stares down his first read, only rolls to his right, etc. He’s developing bad habits and the O-line play is part of that. The deeper into the season these issues continue, the fast fans will turn on him.
Cricket The opening fourth round game of the Curtain Bros T20 Smash was a thriller going down to the last ball in the match between the Hastings Deering Black Bass and the Trakpro Mudmen. The Mudmen batted first compiling a healthy 8/146 off their 20 overs, Barramundi Lega Siaka with a scorching 65 off 46 balls and Vani Morea proving his consistency with 20 runs at the top of the order. Gaudi Toka did the damage with the ball taking 3/31 off three overs and a very tidy 1/17 from Oala James in his 4 over spell. In reply, the Black Bass lost Kipling Doriga in the first over but all other batsmen got starts and kept the run rate manageable. CJ Amini 37 (29) Mahuru Dai 18 (12) but it was Steven Eno who guided the Bass home with 48 (34) not out including six fours, hitting the winning run off the last ball. The Mudmen bowling honours were shared with three bowlers taking a wicket each and two run outs in the the Black Bass’s 5/147. The afternoon game saw the Hastings Deering Black Bass take on the Ela Motors Toyota Cassowaries who batted first scoring 5/129. Anthony Vare led the scoring with 41 off as many balls, Tony Ura 25 and Chad Soper 30 not out. The Black Bass Bowlers kept the batsmen quiet bowling a tight line, Mahuru dai 2/26 and Oala James 1/24 the standouts. The 129 total was 20-30 short but two early wickets had the Cassowaries up and about with Doriga and Toka back in the sheds. Black Bass captain CJ Amini then came to the crease and put on a batting master-class finishing on 75 not out of only 47 balls well assisted by Steven Eno 36, the Black Bass chasing down the 130 required in the 16th over 4 down. Two wins for the day for Hastings Deering Black Bass puts them on top of the table with two rounds left, the Ela Motors Cassowaries will need to win their next two games to feature in the finals. Two more rounds at Amini Park today (Wednesday) and Thursday this week before the Grand Final on Saturday.
According to a claim in the Italian media, Udinese are showing an interest in Liverpool attacker Lazar Markovic. The Serbian looks to be surplus to requirements at Liverpool and with 12 months left on his contract the Premier League club will want to offload him in this transfer window.TMW report Udinese have made a survey for Markovic and could look to move in on the player. It’s also claimed the Liverpool player is receiving attention from Spain and it’s seems likely he will leave Anfield this summer.Last season Markovic was loaned out to Belgian side Anderlecht after spending the first half of the campaign playing for Liverpool’s U23 side.Embed from Getty ImagesSince arriving from Benfica the Serbia international has failed to make an impact and is no longer in the plans of Jurgen Klopp.With the risk of losing him on a free next summer Liverpool are under pressure to sell him outright before the transfer deadline next month.NDby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
