Avian flu pops up in German zoo

first_imgAug 4, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A swan tested positive for H5N1 avian influenza at a German zoo yesterday, signaling the virus’s re-emergence in the country after a 3-month lull.A black Australian swan at the Dresden Zoo in eastern Germany was found dead on Aug 1, but zoo officials weren’t too concerned at first because deaths in the breed are common, zoo biologist Ron Brockmann told Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA). But after the bird tested positive for H5N1 yesterday, he said, the zoo quarantined other animals and sought government permission to vaccinate the rest of the zoo’s collection of 720 birds of 112 species.The swan was the first zoo animal infected in Germany, according to the story.  Brockmann said the virus might have entered the zoo last winter when wild birds visited the zoo’s ponds. The staff is worried that other animals in the zoo may become infected with the H5N1 virus if they eat dead birds, he said.Germany’s last outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu were in February among wild birds and in April in farm poultry, Agence France-Presse reported today.In other developments, a man in Vietnam who was hospitalized with possible avian flu tested negative yesterday, according to news services. The patient is from the southern province of Kien Giang, on the Cambodian border in the Mekong Delta. Vietnam hasn’t had a confirmed human H5N1 case since November 2005.Three people in Thailand have also been cleared of H5N1 infection, according to the Bangkok Post. One is a 9-year-old girl from Lop Buri province in central Thailand who died 2 days ago. The other two patients—a 17-year-old boy and a 42-year-old woman—are from Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok. The tests indicated that all three patients had a type A flu virus, but not H5N1, the newspaper said.As of yesterday, the Thai Health Ministry reported that 97 patients from 24 provinces were under surveillance for possible avian flu. Those numbers were down from 164 patients in 21 provinces the previous day.Thailand’s only confirmed human H5N1 case this year was in a 17-year-old boy from Phichit province who died of the disease Jul 24. A report in the Aug 3 Eurosurveillance Weekly suggests that the boy’s death indicates that poultry deaths in Thailand are being underreported. The authors observe that poultry deaths in the country were not reported until Jul 24, the day the boy died.The boy’s case may be an example of a “sentinel human,” meaning a human H5N1 case that triggers reporting of the disease in poultry, the report says.See also:Eurosurveillance Weekly report on avian influenza in Thailand read more

Gunners strike back in Canaries triumph

first_img Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere returned from an ankle injury, a fit again Theo Walcott was on the bench and captain Thomas Vermaelen returned to defence. Norwich started well as on-loan forward Kei Kamara offered support to captain Grant Holt and Robert Snodgrass in attack. Arsenal, however, were soon on the offensive, as a flowing move down the left saw Gervinho cut the ball back across the face of goal. On 20 minutes, a clever flick from Wilshere at the edge of the Norwich penalty area sent Aaron Ramsey clear, but the ball bounced just too far ahead of the Wales international. There was more purpose from Arsenal following the restart. However, it was the visiting supporters who were in full voice just before the hour as Turner headed Norwich into the lead. Kieran Gibbs tripped Kamara on the edge of the Arsenal penalty area. Robert Snodgrass floated the free-kick towards the back post, where Turner rose to power a header into the bottom left corner after 56 minutes. Wenger then made a double change to bring on Walcott and Podolski, replacing Wilshere and Gervinho. Arsenal were level with just two minutes left from the penalty spot. Following a corner, the assistant on the far side spotted a shirt pull by Kamara on Giroud. Arteta kept his nerve to guide the ball into the bottom-right corner just past Bunn’s dive. Arsenal turned things around when substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain darted to the left and cut the ball back, where Giroud stabbed it home just ahead of Sebastien Bassong’s challenge. After Jonny Howson’s snapshot was saved by Lukasz Fabianski, it finished 3-1 to the Gunners when Podolski turned to drill home from 18 yards. With Chelsea and Tottenham not in action, the Gunners had the chance to put Champions League qualification back in their own hands. However, the Canaries produced a resolute battling display and took the lead on 56 minutes through Michael Turner’s close-range header. With the clock ticking, Arsenal were handed a way back into the match when the assistant referee spotted a shirt pull on Olivier Giroud. Mikel Arteta kept his cool from the spot to level, before Giroud’s close-range effort turned the match around and substitute Lukas Podolski wrapped things up in stoppage time. Arsenal struck three late goals to move back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League and deny Norwich a famous victory in a 3-1 result at the Emirates Stadium.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bryans, UW rowers preparing for last Madison regatta

first_imgThe women’s openweight crew team’s season continues with the Midwest Rowing Championships on Lake Wingra this Saturday, as the varsity eight try to avenge a brutal setback and the novice eight looks to continue recent success.At her press conference Monday, UW head coach Bebe Bryans said that a lack of extended practice times — the ice on Lake Mendota prohibited workout sessions up until approximately two weeks ago — has been a small setback, and the team is still working through some of the early-season details.”We are still figuring out our speed, figuring out our lineups, we knew that would be the case,” Bryans said. “It’s the one downside to having less water time than a lot of other teams, we don’t have time to play in private. When we have to make changes, it’s out there in public.”Wisconsin has, according to Bryans, been tested early and often in the 2006 campaign, which has served as replacement for the loss of practices before the first of April.”We’ve had a very challenging schedule, we didn’t hold back anything on the schedule this year for this team,” said the second-year coach. “We’ve had races pretty much every weekend against top ten-ranked teams.”The Badgers — ranked No. 16 in the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association/USRowing Poll — faced two such programs last weekend on Lake Wingra. In the varsity eight race, No. 7 Michigan State and No. 9 Michigan defeated Wisconsin at its Double Dual on Saturday.Bryans said her team would get the opportunity to get back at both the Michigan State and Michigan squads in an even more important regatta, the Big Ten Championships, which will be held April 29 in St. Paul, Minn.When asked if her rowers would be ready for the chance, Bryans replied, “more than I can possibly say.””I think we were not fast enough this weekend, and they were very fast,” she added. “These crews are … serious competition. I know that we can compete with them; we didn’t do a good job this weekend. I don’t need to tell my athletes that, they know it.”We blinked this weekend, and our challenge is to race with them and not blink again.”Students become the masters … for a day: The fastest time of all Saturday was unsurprisingly attained by the Michigan State varsity eight in their morning race, when they defeated their UW counterparts with a time of 6:22.6.However, the bigger shock came when the Wisconsin novice eight, in its first race of the day, accomplished the second-best time of the entire meet. The Badgers nearly overtook the Spartans’ time, clocking in at an even 6:24.”I think that time surprised everybody,” Bryans said. “They have gelled really well, they’ve got a joy in racing, a reckless abandon, so to speak, and they’re fearless.”Bryans said she has entertained the thought of retooling her starting rowers for the varsity eight in light of the novice eight’s effort, which produced a 6-0 record on the day.”I’m open for anything,” Bryans said. “Because of their performance this weekend, and in the weeks leading up to this, they’ve just dominated everybody that they’ve come up against, that isn’t out of the realm of possibility.”Looking ahead: Bryans said there are two advantageous aspects of the upcoming Midwest Championships, one being the opportunity for everybody to get involved.”Some people that haven’t gotten to race or haven’t gotten much race experience will get to race here, both for the men and the women,” she explained. “We’re going to be trying some different lineups, trying some different races, putting people in different boats, perhaps, so it’s a tune-up for the top boats and it’s a great experience for everybody on the team.”Bryans added that the Midwest Championships give the Badgers one final chance to show off their skills before heading off to St. Paul for the conference meet, and perhaps ultimately the NCAA Championship regatta in West Windsor, N.J.”It’s a great regatta for the University of Wisconsin and the city of Madison,” the coach said. “And hopefully, it’ll be a nice weekend, this past weekend was perfect regatta-watching conditions. We’re hoping to have a great day.”last_img read more

Others must step up after Farmer’s injury

first_imgGeorge Farmer’s 2013-14 season is over before it even began.The junior wide receiver suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a torn medial collateral ligament in practice Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times. Farmer, who was the top receiver prospect in the class of 2011, prepped with current Trojan star Marqise Lee and former star Robert Woods at Serra High School and was considered by many to be the best of the bunch. But the magic he found in high school hasn’t translated thus far at USC. Unfortunately, that won’t be changing in 2013.Add Farmer to the long list of injured Trojans this spring: Senior running back Silas Redd, junior tight end Xavier Grimble and junior linebacker/running back Tre Madden are all sidelined.It’s an all-star team of injured players, and right now, the Trojans are hurting. Big time. Without Redd, the total number of carries by Trojan runners from last year’s roster is at an underwhelming 72. Thirteen of those were from Lee, by the way. And without Grimble, returning tight ends caught just 14 passes.Things look rather bleak right now, but in the grand scheme of things, these injuries are going to help the Trojans. Now, I’m not implying that Farmer tearing his knee to shreds is good for the team; for all we know, Farmer could have been this season’s breakout star. But with proven players out this spring and for the foreseeable future, younger players now have the opportunity to step up and show that they deserve playing time when the season kicks off at Hawai’i. Look no further than freshman running back Justin Davis.Davis, who hails from Stockton, Calif., enrolled early at USC in an effort to get ahead of his freshmen counterparts. Not only is he above the competition in his class, but he is catching up with Redd and redshirt junior running back D.J. Morgan, with whom Davis is splitting the majority of the practice carries this spring. He’s looking great thus far and, with a solid spring game, could go for even more carries come fall camp.With Grimble out, it is a chance for fellow junior tight end Randall Telfer to step up and take the reins. Grimble caught 12 passes last season, but with players like Lee and Woods around him, he was almost forgotten in the mix. Another tight end, sophomore                                 Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick, also has a chance to step up his game after catching just two passes as a freshman; he’s now going to be depended on in double-tight sets for the last few practices of the spring. Is there any better time to show his skills? Probably not.As for the receiving corps, losing Farmer for the season definitely stings, especially in the wake of Woods leaving for the NFL. But in the “glass-half-full” department, it is a chance for sophomore Nelson Agholor to prove without a doubt that he is ready to be the No. 2 behind Lee. Though he was slated to be the starter anyway, with Farmer out and unproven depth behind him, Agholor will likely see a lot more passes thrown in his direction.And who will step up and be the No. 3 in Farmer’s place? It could be a lot of guys. Victor Blackwell. De’Von Flournoy. It could even be freshman Darreus Rogers, whose debut has long been anticipated since he was ruled academically ineligible last season. In the spring of last season, Flournoy was one of the stars in the spring. Though it didn’t parlay into a great deal of success (he caught one pass in 2012), who’s to say that someone like Rogers can’t have a big spring and turn it into a strong freshman campaign like Lee and Woods did before him?Nothing in football is guaranteed. Well, there is one thing: injuries. They are bound to happen to every team, regardless of how well trained and prepared its players are. Just because injuries happen doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world, though. Rather, it’s a chance for unproven players to turn themselves into role players and sometimes even stars.Back in 2009, a freshman named Matt Barkley was slated to be the No. 2 behind veteran Aaron Corp. Corp got hurt in fall practice, and Barkley got his chance. A conference-record 116 touchdown passes later, I’d say things turned out pretty well for the Trojans. Who’s to say that this season’s injuries can’t create more stars? “Goal Line Stand” runs Fridays. To comment on this story, email Michael Katz at or visit read more
