Firings of officers after students pulled from car reversed

Firings of officers after students pulled from car reversed

first_imgATLANTA (AP) — The firings of two Atlanta police officers over an incident in which two college students were pulled from a car in traffic during a protest against police brutality have been overturned. The Civil Service Board found the city did not follow its own personnel procedures, which resulted in the officers being deprived of due process because they weren’t given proper notification or adequate opportunity to respond. The board ordered Monday that the dismissals of Ivory Streeter and Mark Gardner be revoked. Police body camera footage shows officers shouting at the two students, firing Tasers at them and dragging them from the car. The pair can be heard screaming and asking what they did wrong.last_img read more

Colombia Arrests 14 Alleged Drug Traffickers Sought for Extradition by the US

Colombia Arrests 14 Alleged Drug Traffickers Sought for Extradition by the US

first_img Colombian authorities have arrested 14 alleged members of a drug-trafficking gang sought for extradition by the United States, in an operation carried out in five cities in the country, the Public Prosecutor’s Office announced on March 12. Following three years of investigation, the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Navy made the arrests “simultaneously” in the cities of Bogotá, Medellín (in northwestern Colombia), Cali (in the southwest), Barranquilla (in the north), and Cartagena (in the north), the Public Prosecutor’s Office specified on its website. The individuals arrested are sought by a judge in the Southern District of New York, in Manhattan, “on charges of drug trafficking and criminal conspiracy,” the agency recalled. This organization had laboratories in southwestern Colombia for the production of drugs, which were then transported to and temporarily stored in cities on the Colombian Atlantic Coast. The drug-trafficking group, from which around 900 kilos of cocaine were seized in Barranquilla in 2010, collaborated with “Los Rastrojos” [The Stubble], “Los Urabeños,” and “Los Paisas,” the major Colombian criminal gangs that arose following the demobilization of paramilitary organizations between 2003 and 2006. Those arrested were transported to Bogotá to face extradition proceedings, the Public Prosecutor’s Office stated. By Dialogo March 14, 2012last_img read more

Journaling: Taming my monkey mind

Journaling: Taming my monkey mind

first_imgI have often been asked by friends and listeners of The CUInsight Experience podcast about my journaling practice (yes, those are my full journals from the past couple years in the picture). I find a great benefit from starting my day by putting pen to paper and writing a minimum of three pages every morning.Here are my three tips to start journaling (or get back in the grove):Just do it: When I started journaling a few years ago (or when I get away from journaling) I set a goal. I told myself when I started I would journal every day for the month of July. One month of three pages per day. I believe we can develop a habit in a month.Don’t think, just write: Whatever crazy sh*t is bouncing around your head, put pen to paper and get it out. Chase every squirrel. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, or sentence structure. Just write.The anti-memoir: This is just for you. Don’t let anyone read your journal. Jill knows to burn mine in the case of my untimely passing. Don’t write as if someone will ever read your journal. This is not your memoir. It’s moving stuff out of your head. It’s taking the time to follow thoughts. Where you start and where you end will look completely different. Personally I start my day with my morning pages. Gratitude is a great way to fill pages. You’ll find from starting your day with journaling that you are more focused and more productive the rest of the day. You give yourself the space to reduce your monkey mind before tackling email, social media, or your calendar. It’s a powerful thing. Trust me.Here is a link to a YouTube video that was helpful for me: Morning Pages – Write Daily for Clarity, Creativity, Productivity And if you’re really feeling crazy and want to dig deeper, there’s a book called The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. (Full transparency… I own this book but am still yet to finish it. The video above did the trick for me.)My two favorite journals:Moleskine Classic Notebook (You can also find Moleskine at any bookstore, office supply store, or airport.)Shinola Medium Hard Linen Journal (I just ordered Jill and I three each of these to restock ours last week.)  57SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Randall Smith Randall Smith is the co-founder of CUInsight.com, the host of The CUInsight Experience podcast, and a bit of a wanderlust.As one of the co-founders of CUInsight.com he … Web: www.CUInsight.com Detailslast_img read more

Study probes patterns in previous triple-reassortant swine flu infections

Study probes patterns in previous triple-reassortant swine flu infections

first_imgMay 7, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Triple reassortant swine influenza A viruses that contain genes from avian, human, and swine influenza viruses emerged and became predominant in North American pig herds by the late 1990s and have been detected in humans 11 times since 2005, authors from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health departments reported today. Nine of the patients had been exposed to pigs to various degrees at sites ranging from pig farms to a custom slaughtering house. In 8 of the 11 cases, pigs reportedly showed signs of respiratory illness. Exposure wasn’t known for one of the patients, and another was epidemiologically linked to a person with a suspected infection, suggesting human-to-human transmission of the triple reassortant swine flu virus. Preliminary data suggest no cross-reactivity between ferret antisera against the triple-reassortant isolates and the seasonal influenza A viruses, the authors reported. Isolates from all 11 patients were susceptible to older antiviral drug group called the adamantanes as well as the newer neuraminidase inhibitors. “Our findings underscore the need for close communication and collaboration between human and animal health agencies for ongoing surveillance, investigation, research, prevention, and control efforts,” the group wrote. According to surveillance reports and investigation by state health departments of two of the earlier cases, the median age of the patients was 10 years (range, 16 months to 48 years), and 8 patients were younger than 18. All lived in the Midwestern or southern United States. Among the clinical findings, 4 of the 11 patients had underlying medical conditions, and at least 3 had received the current season’s influenza vaccine. More detailed information was available for 10 of the patients. Symptoms included fever, cough, headache, sore throat, and diarrhea. The median fever was 103.5°F. Incubation ranged from 3 to 9 days. The first such infection in humans was reported to the CDC in 2005, and in June 2007 human infection with novel influenza A viruses was classified as a notifiable disease in the United States, according to the group’s findings that appeared today in an early online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine. Their report describes epidemiologic and clinical data from 11 cases reported to the CDC from December 2005 through February 2009 Reasons for increased case reports since 2005 are unclear, but the authors suggested that improved surveillance and testing and new requirements for reporting might have played a role, though a true increase in human infections may have stemmed from changes in zoonotic transmission.center_img Viruses in all 11 cases were subtyped at the CDC with real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and the hemagglutinin-inhibition assay. Complete genome sequence analysis was performed on viruses from respiratory fluid samples to determine if the virus was a triple reassortant. The authors concluded that the incubation for the triple-reassortant influenza appeared longer than for seasonal flu and that some of the patients had severe lower respiratory illness and signs that are unusual for influenza, such as diarrhea. Among four hospitalizations, two were severe: a 48-year-old woman with an underlying health condition and a 26-year-old woman who was previously healthy. All of the patients fully recovered. They advised clinicians to consider animal influenza infections in patients presenting with febrile respiratory illnesses, especially when human influenza viruses are not circulating. Tests showed that 10 of the patients were infected with triple-reassortant swine flu A H1N1, and 1 was infected with the H1N2 subtype. Analysis of virus hemagglutinin genes from five of the patients found that the viruses came from two different phylogenetic lineages circulating in North American swine.

Chinese military researchers move a new COVID vaccine candidate into human trial

Chinese military researchers move a new COVID vaccine candidate into human trial

first_imgA Chinese military research institute has been approved to test its second experimental coronavirus vaccine in humans, the eighth candidate in clinical trials for China as it emerges as a front-runner in the global fight against COVID-19.No vaccine has been approved for sale against the virus that has killed over 470,000 people, but more than a dozen candidates have entered different stages of human test globally.The new drug is developed by the Academy of Military Science (AMS), a research institute affiliated with the People’s Liberation Army, and was approved to proceed to human trial by China’s National Medical Products Administration. AMS’ latest candidate, named ARCoV, uses mRNA technology, an approach that is also used for candidates developed by Moderna Inc in the United States and German firm CureVac but has never been tested in China-based clinical trials, the institute said in its social media WeChat late on Wednesday.”The core raw materials and equipment are all domestically produced, and rapid production capacity ramp-up is achievable,” Qin Chengfeng, a researcher responsible for the mRNA project, said in the statement.The Chinese Clinical Trial registry, without naming ARCoV, said a phase 1 clinical trial for an mRNA vaccine, sponsored by AMS, Yunnan Walvax Biotechnology and Suzhou Abogen Biosciences, would start on Thursday and evaluate the safety of the candidate. http://www.chictr.org.cn/showproj.aspx?proj=55524Separately, Ad5-nCoV, a vaccine candidate co-developed by AMS and CanSino Biologics using a different technique, is under phase-2 clinical trial in China and has won approval to begin human testing in Canada.Topics :last_img read more

Young couple lands major bargain by looking past furniture and tanks

It just really took away the appeal of being a house. They had filing cabinet where the stove was supposed to be. The bedrooms had boardroom tables, projectors, whiteboards and all that. It was never presented as a house and a lot of people found it hard to envisage it being a home.” The house at Ardentallen Road, Enoggera. Picture: Realestate.com.auA YOUNG couple landed a $155,000 discount on Brisbane’s median price just 6km from the CBD because they looked past the furniture – and army tanks.Real estate agent Zak Smith of Raine & Horne said the couple scored a bargain because they were not fazed by the fact that there was a filing cabinet where the stove should have been – or that an occasional tank could come down the street. 59 Ardentallen Road, Enoggera.He said some potential buyers were also turned off by the fact that the street was the entrance to the Enoggera Army Barracks. “It’s not a busy street but it is the entrance to the army barracks with sometimes a lot of activity in the area.”Even so, Mr Smith said the buyers had landed one that could deliver good gains for them, given the street had attracted prices above $850,000. He sold a neighbouring home for $855,000 and another for $872,000, while a builder who cleared a nearby block to put in a new build landed a sale price over $1m.Realestate.com.au classified Enoggera as a high demand market, with 851 visits per property compared to the Queensland average of 306.last_img read more
