Australia reports community spread of novel flu in Victoria

first_img Victoria’s health minister, Daniel Andrews, said in a statement today that the state’s move to a modified sustain phase of its influenza plan is being done to focus on protecting vulnerable people from the virus rather than containing the virus. Vulnerable groups include seniors, students at special development schools, hospital patients, and those who have chronic illnesses. See also: Jun 3, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Australian health officials acknowledged today that the novel H1N1 influenza virus has achieved sustained community transmission in the state of Victoria, where 521 cases were reported today, an increase of 126 since yesterday. The spread of the virus in Victoria suggests that the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) formal criterion for a full-fledged pandemic (pandemic alert phase 6)—sustained community transmission in more than one global region—has probably been met. The WHO has been holding off on a pandemic declaration because of concern that it may trigger undue alarm, given that the illness is mild in most cases. This week the agency said it would come up with a way to rate the disease’s severity and provide related guidance in an effort to reduce undue alarm from a pandemic declaration. Australia’s overall novel H1N1 case count reached 633 today, with all eight states and territories reporting cases. In addition to Victoria’s cases, New South Wales has reported 70, and Queensland has reported 26. For the remaining states and the two territories, case numbers are in the single digits. At a news briefing yesterday, Dr. Keiji Fukuda of the WHO described Australia as one of several countries that seemed to be in transition between having scattered travel-related and institutional H1N1 cases and having sustained community transmission. He said the WHO had not yet seen evidence of “really widespread community transmission” in those countries. “The decision to move to a modified sustain phase of our plan acknowledges that Victoria’s response to the H1N1 influenza virus is proportionate to the risk to the community,” Andrews said. Raina MacIntyre, professor of infectious diseases and epidemiology at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, told CIDRAP News that Victoria is the only state where sustained community transmission appears to be occurring. More than 75% of cases have occurred in children aged 5 to 18, she said. Schools will no longer automatically close if a student has a flu-like illness, though large numbers of confirmed cases in a school might warrant closure. The state will provide antiviral treatment only to those who have novel flu infections and their household contacts, require people with confirmed cases to isolate themselves for 3 days after starting treatment, conduct intensive surveillance in high-risk settings such as nursing homes, and enhance community surveillance for illnesses and changes in the circulating influenza strains. The normal influenza season in Australia and the rest of the southern hemisphere is just getting under way, and global health officials worry that the novel flu virus could change when it circulates alongside the seasonal strains. Though weekly reports on Australia’s flu season haven’t yet begun, MacIntyre said so far labs are reporting that both seasonal and flu viruses are circulating. Jun 3 Australia Department of Health and Ageing update The Australia Department of Health and Ageing said the pandemic response for Victoria has been raised from “contain” to “sustain.” The resulting measures “will enable Victoria to more appropriately respond to the relatively higher number of cases and the sustained community transmission of the infection in Victoria,” the agency said in a statement.

Cardinals Win 7th Grade SEI Tourney

first_imgThe St. Louis Cardinals 7th grade team played the South Ripley Raiders on Thursday night in the finals of the SEI Tournament 47-29. Both teams were looking to cap off their very successful season with a chance to cut down the nets. The Cardinals had a little more riding on the game as they were also looking to avenge an earlier season loss against the very talented South Ripley Raiders team.The game started with the Cardinals controlling the tip, and for the most part, the rest of the game. The Cardinals, known to play good defense, turned in one of their best defensive performances of the year, as they shut down the Raiders in the 1st quarter not allowing them to score. They also came out shooting well as Andrew Oesterling and Wil Freeland both knocked in shots from 3 pt range to help put the St. Louis up 14-0 at the end of the quarter. The second quarter was played fairly even and the half ended by the score of 24-11.The Raiders came out in the third quarter and hit their first 5 out of 6 shots but the Cardinals were able to answer the call highlighted by a 3 pointer in the corner by Riley Schebler. The Cardinals outscored the Raiders by a point and the 3rd quarter ended 37-23. The fourth quarter came down to playing good defense and making free throws for the Cardinals, which they did, as they outscored the Raiders 10-6 and were 8 for 10 from the line. The game ended with the Cardinals winning by the score of 47 – 29.The scoring for the Cardinals consisted of Wil Freeland with 7, Riley Schebler 7, Andrew Oesterling 17, Leyton Ratcliff 8, and Sam Voegele 8. Defensively the team was led by Schebler and Oesterling on the perimeter and Sam Voegele controlled the boards again as he pulled down a season high 14 rebounds.The Cardinals finished the season 23-2. The championship win brings back the trophy to St. Louis for the first since 2005 when the SEI tournament started. Congratulations should be given to both South Ripley Raiders and St. Louis Cardinals for a great season.Courtesy of Cardinals Coach Jim Oesterling.last_img read more

Pakistan late strikes overcome Bravo’s 116

first_imgPAKISTAN bowlers held their nerve to seize a 56-run win over West Indies after an intense, attritional fifth day in Dubai, in which Darren Bravo led his side’s plucky tilt at a come-from-behind victory.Bravo scored a 249-ball 116, taking his side to within 83 runs of the target, before Pakistan finally overcame his dogged resistance to wrest back a match that had looked like slipping away. They wrapped it up with 12 overs remaining, to register a memorable win in their 400th Test.For much of the final day, Bravo proved to be an immovable object at the centre of the Dubai cricket ground. He carried forward his fine form and doughty resistance from the first innings, showing the application and patience to rebuff whatever Pakistan threw at him. His forward defensive shots, of which there were many, were perfectly middled and he was equally convincing when leaving the ball. On occasions, he unfurled one of his crisp drives or cuts to the off-side boundary, but his knock was more about grit than flair.Bravo began the day batting on 26 off 67, with West Indies on 95 for 2, still 251 runs short of their target. After seeing Marlon Samuels depart off the first ball of the day and losing Jermaine Blackwood inside the first hour, Bravo shared a fighting 77-run fifth-wicket stand with Roston Chase and continued his vigil well after Chase departed.As West Indies pursued what would have been their second-highest successful chase, more and more they came to depend on Bravo. He shouldered that burden until almost an hour into the final session. But with 83 runs to win and four wickets in hand, he played a tired drive off Yasir Shah, managing only to squirt the ball back towards the bowler, whose sensational diving catch was the last, decisive turn on a gripping final day.Yet West Indies had made Pakistan work much harder for the win than they would have expected after a promising start to the day. After Pakistan’s demoralising collapse on the previous day, Amir’s first-ball wicket was just the tonic they needed.It was a rather unremarkable delivery, bowled from around the wicket, pitching on a good length well outside off and angling in. Samuels was drawn into poking at a ball he could easily have left and a thin edge was gleefully accepted by Sarfraz Ahmed behind the stumps.Blackwood, coming in at No.5, played a scratchy knock, fishing at balls outside off, with the bat well away from the body. He got away with numerous plays and misses against Amir, as well as a checked drive off a slower ball that fell between mid-off and mid-on. But it was to spin that he perished, when he played a length ball from Mohammad Nawaz from deep in his crease and was wrapped on the pads in front of leg stump.Chase then joined Bravo for a partnership that steadily revived West Indies and unsettled Pakistan over the course of 28.2 overs of stubborn fight.Wahab and Sohail Khan tested the batsmen with occasional bouncers and yorkers, Amir bowled probing lines, the spinners plugged away – but Bravo and Chase looked untroubled through it all.By the 71st over, Chase’s confidence had grown to the extent that he dared to drive Yasir against the turn for a boundary through midwicket. Perhaps that was when confidence became overconfidence. Next ball, Yasir flighted another one pitching outside leg and Chase attempted the same shot again. This time the ball turned past his outside edge to crash into leg stump.Two balls later, Wahab yorked Shane Dowrich to hit his middle and off stumps, sending him back for a first-ball duck. West Indies were now reeling at 194 for 6, and Pakistan had a firm grip on proceedings again.But Bravo was still at the crease and he had his captain Jason Holder for company. The two men saw the side through to dinner, leaving 114 to win in the final session. They continued to chip away at the target after the resumption, and Pakistan’s anxiety gradually built. When Amir wrapped Holder on the front pad with a delivery that appeared to be sliding down, Pakistan’s review of the not-out decision seemed more out of desperation than expectation. Hawk-Eye gave them no respite.Another hopeful review followed when Yasir’s appeal for a catch at slip was turned down. The ball had gone off Holder’s pad. Pakistan had no reviews remaining. West Indies were 84 runs from victory. The tension was mounting.Two balls later, Yasir flew to his left to take the return catch of Bravo that decisively swung the match in Pakistan’s favour. West Indies’ last three wickets added 26 runs, but the sting had gone out of the contest, and a pair of run-outs handed Pakistan a hard-fought win.last_img read more

Syracuse routs Kent State behind explosive offense

first_imgIona Holloway threw her clenched right fist in the air as her teammates swarmed her. The backbone of the Orange defense was sure to take in the moment after her first goal of the season.“I always think that the girls on our team don’t celebrate goals enough,” she said. “I love scoring goals and I don’t get to do much of it. So when I do, it’s a good time.”Holloway and the No. 2 Orange (7-0) cruised to a 7-1 victory over Kent State (4-5) on Sunday afternoon in front of 274 at J.S. Coyne Stadium. Holloway was one of six different players who scored for SU in the dominant win in which the Orange outshot the Golden Flashes 33-2. Syracuse’s explosive offense keyed the team to a 5-2 victory over Villanova on Friday.“This team has amazing chemistry,” head coach Ange Bradley said.Liz McInerney led the offensive attack, recording an assist on three of the Orange’s four first-half goals in addition to scoring her own goal less than a minute into the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSix minutes into the game, McInerney dribbled around her defender and along the end line, then found an open Lauren Brooks on the left post for the finish. Two minutes later, Emma Russell hit a perfect, off-handed cross pass just past Kent State goaltender Jahna Jordan, and Kelsey Millman knocked it in for a 2-0 lead.In the 15th minute, McInerney deflected a pass to a wide-open Jordan Page, who found the back of the net for the first of her two goals. Holloway’s goal then gave the Orange a 4-0 lead at the half.“Liz has been trying to hit my deflection line and luckily I got that one,” Holloway said. “After that, they locked onto me, but it was great to get my first goal.”Holloway said she needed to stay focused and control emotions after scoring a goal. The senior said the team always looks to maintain possession after a goal and then steadily pass the ball around to direct the tempo of the game.Syracuse stayed in control coming out of the break.In the opening minute of the second half, McInerney extended the lead to five when she found the left corner of the cage from the top of the shooting circle.The Golden Flashes responded with a penalty corner goal scored by Julia Hofmann, who beat diving Syracuse goalie Leann Stiver for the team’s first score.“I take total responsibility for that,” Stiver said. “Fortunately, the offense had enough goals where it wasn’t a damper on our day.”With the possibility of a shutout gone, freshman Jess Jacko replaced Stiver for the final 28 minutes of the game and didn’t face a single shot.Syracuse back Anna Crumb added the team’s sixth goal with less than nine minutes remaining. About one minute later, Page scored the seventh and final goal for Syracuse, capping an impressive offensive performance this weekend.“I think we came out much better than we did on Friday,” Stiver said. “Today was a great win.” Comments Published on September 17, 2012 at 2:43 am Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Brandon Triche leading Boeheim’s Army with renewed search for stardom

first_img Published on August 1, 2017 at 11:38 am Contact Matthew: | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+ The celebration after Brandon Triche’s late 3-pointer in Brooklyn was not flashy. Nothing extra, just the same reservation he displayed as a four-year starter at Syracuse. He later approached the free-throw line with the same ease he showcased when he led SU to the 2013 Final Four. He calmly sunk all four free-throws to secure Boeheim’s Army a spot in the Elite Eight, where he ran point during the SU alumni’s 40-10 run to end the game.  This Triche of summer 2017 insists he’s better than the Triche of 2013, when he averaged 13.6 points as starting shooting guard in his final season at Syracuse. He insists that now he’s a step quicker, a little more mobile and consistent with his jumper. He insists he can scan the floor with an extra sense of how things will play out in front of him. He said the efficiency, strength and floor sense is all there.That’s important because he’s averaging 11 points, six assists and 4.8 boards per game for a Boeheim’s Army team two victories away from capturing The Basketball Tournament’s $2 million grand prize. He missed the entire 2015-16 season overseas due to injury, taking a diminished role in last year’s TBT. Clearing his mind and preserving his body, he surged into TBT this summer.At 26, Triche said what’s most important is showcasing his talents on national TV and, hopefully, earning a nice paycheck. Winning the 64-team, single-elimination tournament this week in Baltimore would give him both, affording him the chance to give it another go in the NBA G-League this fall.“I want to get paid somewhere close to what I deserve,” Triche said, “and use this as a stepping stone. This is a great opportunity at a high enough level where I have exposure on ESPN. If I do play well, teams will see that, and it’ll open up doors I didn’t have before.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDaily Orange File Photo The 6-foot-4 guard does not lead BA in scoring, but he’s been arguably the team’s most efficient player. In both Brooklyn games, he heated up in the second half. He’s running the point with the same composure he displayed at SU and he’s turnover-free.“He’s the best all-around player on our team,” BA guard John Gillon said.Leading up to the tournament, it had been a rocky stretch of basketball for Triche. After graduating SU, he signed a one-year deal in the Italian Second Division. He played for the New York Knicks summer league team in 2014, but didn’t latch on in the NBA.When his production and speed declined in early 2015, Triche said, he was released from an Italian pro team. He told others it was his ankle that bothered him. Yet he had been playing high-level European hoops for a month with “no meniscus, no ACL,” his agent, Jamar Smiley, said. “He’s a monster.”His left knee was reconstructed on March 31, 2015. He first tore his ACL as a 15-year-old at Jamesville-DeWitt (New York) High School. He sat out the entire 2015-16 season.“Being hurt for 16 months,” Triche said, “it’s easy for people to forget about you … some people still ask me (whether) I still play basketball. This past year for me I realized I’m healthy and even better. I’m getting seen by more eyes.”By that, he means a shot at high-level basketball. Specifically, a shot at the NBA by means of the G-League. Stand out there, he figures, and he could get on an NBA floor. In an ideal world, BA wins the title this week and he stays in the United States. If not, he wants to earn what top players overseas make, several hundred thousand dollars per year.While playing there over parts of the past few seasons, he lived in Rome and Israel. Children who recognized Triche came up to him on Israeli beaches and at gas stations, asking for selfies, autographs or just to say hello.Daily Orange File PhotoWhen back at Syracuse, he works out at local YMCAs and the Jewish Community Center in DeWitt. He said he still carries the fact that he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2012 as a driving force, a reminder to himself that he went from a local three-star recruit to a four-year starter at SU, turning down heavy interest from Georgetown to play for Jim Boeheim at home in central New York.In the process, he stayed to his quiet self. Teammate James Southerland, fresh off a stint with the Utah Jazz in the NBA Summer League, recalls meeting Triche when they were about 16. Southerland approached Triche at a basketball showcase in Philadelphia. Triche didn’t respond.“He packed his bags, didn’t say anything. That was weird as heck,” Southerland said. “Years later, that’s the same kid we’re seeing. That’s the kid who never said a word.”A few days from now he may be back home in the Syracuse area, gearing up for another year overseas. Or he may be celebrating the TBT title with some extra cash in his pocket and a renewed focus at the NBA. Either way, he has reminded Syracuse fans of the same Triche they once saw, rekindling the memories of that deep run in March 2013.“I know my accomplishments,” Triche said, “and the high level I can get to.” Commentslast_img read more
