FLU NEWS SCAN: H5N1 death in Egypt, flu vaccine effectiveness in Europe

first_imgApr 12, 2012 Egypt reports H5N1 deathA 36-year-old woman who succumbed to H5N1 avian flu has become Egypt’s ninth H5N1 case-patient and fifth to die this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported today. The woman, from Giza governorate, became sick Apr 1, was admitted to a hospital Apr 7, and died the same day, the WHO said. Her case was confirmed by a WHO-linked national laboratory. She had exposure to backyard poultry. Since 2006 Egypt has confirmed 167 H5N1 cases, 60 of which have been fatal. Egypt is second in the world in H5N1 cases, after Indonesia, and third in the world in H5N1 deaths, well behind Indonesia in that category but only one death behind Vietnam. Egypt’s nine cases lead the world this year, with Indonesia second at five cases. Egypt has had the most H5N1 cases each year by a good margin since 2009.Apr 12 WHO updateApr 12 WHO global case count Preliminary study: Flu vaccine was 43% effective against H3N2 in EuropeA preliminary study from eight European countries suggests that this year’s flu vaccine was 43% effective against H3N2 viruses, with antigenic drift cited as a possible contributor to the limited vaccine effectiveness (VE). The study, reported today in Eurosurveillance, was conducted by the Influenza Monitoring Vaccine Effectiveness in Europe (I-MOVE) Network in France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, and Spain. It focused on people in flu-vaccination target groups. Over the last 5 weeks of 2011 and the first 7 weeks of this year, providers recruited 2,090 patients with flu-like illness, 575 of whom were in the target groups. Of 935 confirmed flu cases, 867 were H3N2 viruses. Because of the small sample size, the study focused on this subtype only. Of 538 cases included in the analysis, there were 208 H3N2 infections and 330 negative controls. Among the 533 patients with known vaccination status, 179 (33.5%) had been vaccinated. The adjusted VE was found to be 43% (95% confidence interval, -0.4% to 67.7%). “The low to moderate VE we observed may be explained by a limited match identified between the circulating influenza A(H3) virus strains and the vaccine strain,” the report says, noting that the WHO picked a different H3N2 strain for next year’s vaccine in view of signs of increasing antigenic drift in the circulating strains. The report also says the median time between vaccination and illness was 105 days for cases and 74 for controls, which suggests that waning immunity might have contributed to the low VE, but the sample was too small to verify this.Apr 12 Eurosurveillance reportlast_img read more

Empathy Toward Inner Struggles

first_imgRainer AndreesenMM Fine Art in Southampton welcomes a virtual exhibition that dives into the human condition. Based out of New York City and Sag Harbor, Canadian born artist Rainer Andreesen presents his solo show, “Headspace,” June 20 through July 5, where his work goes beyond the physical likeness of a subject in order to capture the spirit within.Drawing since age five, admiring the works of Rembrandt and John Singer Sargent, the series was ignited last summer when his husband, Victor Garber, was on the precipice of a life-threatening illness. Upon fearful back-and-forths to the hospital, Andreesen took notice of the faces of passersby on the streets and city subways, curious about the internal struggles of individuals.“Headspace” was born out of an empathetic understanding that what we see on the outside is a mere fraction what makes up a person. Each portrait in the series, notable for its contrasts, represents a pivotal relationship in Andreesen’s life, from his husband to the melodies of Mick Flannery.Describe your first interaction with studio owner, Peter Marcelle.For me, it was fate that we met that day. My husband Victor and I were living in Southampton at the time and on a walk to visit some friends around the corner from the gallery, which I had never noticed. I was impressed by the hanging work. I recognized Bo Bartlett, Daniel Sprick, and an Andrew Wyeth painting, and was impressed by the curation of the show.On the visit with our friends who knew and respected the gallery, they said I should show the owner some of my work. I told them it was not near the level of paintings I saw though the window and would be too shy to approach the matter with the gallery. One of the friends we were visiting is a therapist, and immediately went into work mode and convinced me to show Peter and Catherine [McCormick] my work. Victor showed Peter some photos on his iPhone of my paintings and our relationship was born in that moment.What other life events occurred that incited your dive into the human condition?The subject of the human condition has been a driving force in my work for many years. It has to be as a portrait painter, but the catalyst was listing to Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and later watching the making of that album. Roger Waters’ words and explanation of them resonated deeply with me and took me on a journey that carries though every aspect of my work and life.An awareness of empathy, compassion, and lessons learned from the past have been a driving force to hopefully move me forward.What was it like painting one of the most important relationships of all, your husband Victor?Painting Victor is like doing a self-portrait for me. There is a freedom that somehow allows me to experiment, be more expressive, and not worry so much about capturing the likeness, but more importantly to capture the spirit of him. I try to do that with all my work, but vanity is mysteriously lifted in the process, when I paint Victor or myself.Rainer Andreesen’s DebraYou mention the significance of singer Mick Flannery in your artist statement. Care to share other influences?The relationship with Mick Flannery was certainly a pivotal moment for me with painting this series of portraits, as his music guided me through every aspect from the start, to finishing each of these subjects.Patricia Wettig and Ken Olin are two subjects I placed in one painting for the series. They have played a pivotal role in my life and work. They are great friends, and a huge inspiration in our lives. Patricia is an incredible actress and writer. She wrote a play called “F2M” that I saw a few years ago in the Catskills. It dropped me to my knees with its powerful message and brilliant introspection of the human condition. I think about that play constantly. Ken is a great actor and director whose work I also admire and am influenced by.They have been married for 38 years and the dynamic of their love and understanding for one another is unmatched in my eyes. I have painted them independently in the past and I am always inspired when we meet. I know I will have a good painting day after a visit with the two of them.These images are captivating. After the eyes, what is the first thing you are drawn to in each subject?I am mostly drawn to the feeling I get with a subject. It’s hard to explain, but I always see things as light and dark, value and contrast and the way it moves me. There is a lot of trial and error, but when it moves me to the core, it must be painted. I always want to capture a truthful moment in time with a subject, and allow the viewer to make their own interpretation of what they see in the shadows and light.Tell us about that day on the subway/streets of NYC, when you first were inspired to do this series.That day was a very moving experience for me. I always try to be empathetic as I pass anyone on the street, but coming from the hospital, filled with the doctors, nurses, visitors, patients, and seeing them on the way to the subway, I felt an elevated, overwhelming sense of not really knowing how each person was feeling or what they might be going through, or them of me. I felt lost in a world of unknowing, and not really sure of how to cope, but compassion was a strong tool to guide me though.Would you say people are generally aware or unaware of their emotional expressions?From my personal experience, I find that people sometimes misinterpret my expressions. What some people perceive in me as confidence or judgment when I’m walking down the street, or entering a room, is really my chronic insecurity. I am just trying to keep it together. It’s funny, but the people I find most difficult to paint or photograph are actors that are not personal friends. When I ask them to be themselves, they seem to want to show me who they think I want them to be.If you were to add in one more portrait, someone who is influencing you right now during the pandemic, who would it be?There were so many people I wanted to be a part of this show, but due to the pandemic I was not able to paint. I would have loved the opportunity to paint the frontline workers risking their lives to help others, or people who are making a huge difference and impacting our lives in this crazy troubling time. Barack [Obama] would be at the top of my list as the consistent voice of reason and hope. One can only dream.MM Fine Art is located at 4 N. Main Street in Southampton.

Green Boating Practices Now to Save the Future

first_imgImagine firing up your boat on a pristine morning. The sun is shining, the waves are small, and the wind is blowing in your face as you carelessly cut the waves. All of sudden, you feel something hit your face: a plastic bag. You look around to see that you have unknowingly driven your boat into a trash island. You look to your left and to your right, only to find huge piles of plastic rubbish as far as the eye can see.Unfortunately, there are several “trash islands” all around the globe, including the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating island of plastic and chemical sludge. It’s no small matter, either; it is approximated to be 5,800,000 square miles wide at any given time. That’s an estimated 8 percent of the Pacific Ocean. It is even estimated to be double the size of the continental United States.How Boaters are Taking ActionThankfully, there is a little thing called science that can help us mitigate and even eliminate pollution. The smartest people in the world are thinking of new and innovative ways to have boats run more efficiently and with less impact on the environment. There are even some yachts, such as the Volitan, “Zephyr of the Sun,” which is completely powered by solar and wind power. This is possible even though the Volitan has six bedrooms, a bar, a TV room and a number of other amenities.How You can HelpYou don’t have to be a scientist or millionaire to do your part in keeping the waters safe and clean. Here are a few ways you can help conserve the environment:Fueling – Do not top off your motor when fueling. This reduces the chance of gas and oil spills. If you do have an oil spill, do not use soap to disperse the contaminants because not only is it illegal, but makes the problem worse underwater.Vessel Maintenance – When using varnish or painting your boat, either place a tarp to collect drips or do it offshore. When washing your boat, use plain water instead of soap to reduce contaminants from reaching the water.Waste Disposal – Dispose of all your solid waste on shore. This includes fishing line and other kinds of plastic which do not disintegrate and are harmful to wildlife. Recycle whenever possible, especially old batteries and fire extinguishers. Use an onshore restroom or bring a portable toilet.Know the Open WaterAll boaters need to be familiar how to properly operate on the water. Boater licenses are available to teach you how to properly dump solid waste, proper water disposal, engine malfunctions, oil spills and how to deal with cross-contamination concerns. All of this knowledge is necessary to learn if you are a boater. Plus you can learn about alternative fuels and ways to cut back on gas consumption — which can even save you money.Saving the environment doesn’t have to cost money, stifle progress or even be inconvenient. In the long run, it is beneficial for ourselves and future generations to do all that we can to keep the water clean and beautiful.Press Release, November 6, 2013last_img read more

Palembang Dapat Bantuan Mobil Listrik Hidrogen, Ini Dia Bedanya dengan Mobil Listrik Biasa!

first_imgMenurut Alex, jenis moda yang pertama kali hadir di Indonesia ini berbeda dengan EV lain yang baterainya harus diisi ulang selama berjam-jam lamanya – mobil listrik hidrogen ini hanya membutuhkan waktu pengisian daya beberapa menit saja untuk menempuh jarak yang sama dengan EV lainnya. Selain itu, Alex juga optimis Sumatera Selatan bisa menjadi pelopor dalam hal pengembangan energi terbarukan dengan menerapkan sistem transportasi yang ramah lingkungan tanpa emisi.“Kendaraan bisa memberikan udara yang bersih bagi masyarakat dan ketersediaan energi terbarukan yang memadai dan terjangkau. Karena sangat mendukung pengurangan polusi lingkungan,” ujar Alex. “Mobil listrik ini akan mendorong inisiatif serupa, dalam mewujudkan infrastruktur energi ramah lingkungan,” tandasnya.Ketua DPD Sumatera Selatan Partai Golkar ini juga mengatakan bahwa kendaraan serupa akan digunakan oleh Jepang pada Olimpiade 2020, “Namun kamu berinisiatif terlebih dahulu untuk menggunakan mobil listrik hidrogen,”Lebih lanjut, hadirnya mobil listrik hidrogen ini merupakan tindak lanjut dari rencana Pemprov Sumatera Selatan untuk menjadikan Kompleks Jakabaring Sport City (salah satu venue Asian Games 2018 di Palembang) sebagai kawasan hijau bebas polusi. “Kalau kendaraan berbahan bakar fosil tentunya tidak boleh masuk ke Jakabaring,” terang Alex dikutip dari sumber berbeda.Di sisi lain, Direktur PT Serba Dinamik Indonesia Nugroho Widiyantoro mengatakan perusahaannya sangat mendukung visi Sumatera Selatan dalam mewujudkan program energi hijau dan ramah lingkungan.“Kami siap berkolaborasi dengan penyedia teknologi terkemuka dunia termasuk dalam hal investasi, transfer teknologi, dan implementasi program. Upaya itu dapat membuka pintu bagi berbagai proyek energi ramah lingkungan di Indonesia, serta mendidik para insinyur menerapkan teknologi hidrogen di masa depan,” ujar Nugroho.Baca Juga: EMBATT, Baterai Mobil Yang Dapat Menempuh Jarak 1000 KmSecara keseluruhan, mobil listrik hidrogen memiliki kesamaan dengan mobil listrik biasa, yaitu sama-sama menggunakan mesin elektrik. Perbedaannya hanya terletak pada sumber tenaga yang dibutuhkan untuk menggerakan mesinnya. Jika mobil listrik mendapatkan tenaga dari baterai yang mampu menyimpan energi listrik, sedangkan mobil listrik hidrogen mendapatkan energi dari gas hidrogen yang telah melewati beberapa tahapan kimiawi dalam sebuah atau beberapa tabung bertekanan tinggi (700 bar).Seperti yang sudah disinggung oleh Alex di atas, kelebihan dari mobil listrik hidrogen ini adalah tidak membutuhkan waktu lama untuk melakukan pengisian daya.

Sebelum “Mengudara”, Kenali Dulu Yuk Kode Penerbangannya!

first_imgSumber: shutterstock.com Pernahkah Anda berhenti sejenak di depan sebuah flight board yang ada di bandara dan memperhatikan kombinasi huruf serta angka yang tertera di sana? Kombinasi tersebut juga dapat Anda temukan di tiket penerbangan Anda. Ya, memang terdapat arti tersendiri dibalik kode penerbangan seperti yang sudah dijabarkan di atas, dan itu bukanlah deretan huruf dan angka yang tidak memiliki makna, karena dari situ, seseorang dapat membaca maskapai apa yang Ia naiki lengkap dengan destinasinya.Baca Juga: Kode Bandara Mudahkan Penumpang dan Pekerja PenerbanganSetiap nomor penerbangan memiliki rute penerbangannya sendiri. Hal ini bertujuan agar memudahkan bagian administrasi maskapai dalam mendata pesawat-pesawat mana saja yang telah take-off atau yang akan landing. Selain itu, nomor penerbangan juga memiliki unsur fungsi perencanaan dan biasanya dikelompokkan secara geografis. Seorang pilot dan juga penulis buku berjudul “Cockpit Confidential”, Patrick Smith mengatakan, sebagian besar maskapai penerbangan memberikan nomor genap untuk penerbangan menuju ke timur, sedangkan penerbangan arah barat mendapatkan nomor ganjil. Lalu, bagaimana cara membacanya? Kode penerbangan biasanya diawali dengan dua huruf yang merupakan kode International Air Transport Association (IATA), sebuah asosiasi angkutan udara internasional. Huruf-huruf tersebut merupakan inisial dari maskapai yang bersangkutan, sebagai contoh, apabila Anda menemukan kode penerbangan dengan huruf awal GA, maka kode tersebut milik maskapai Garuda Indonesia. Contoh lainnya adalah SQ, menandakan kode tersebut milik pesawat asal negeri tetangga, Singapore Airlines.Setelah dua huruf di awal kode penerbangan, muncul beberapa deret angka yang juga memiliki arti tersembunyi. Sebagai aturan umum, nomor penerbangan dengan empat angka yang dimulai dengan angka “3” atau di atasnya, misalnya “3493”, menunjukan bahwa penerbangan tersebut merupakan penerbangan codeshare yang dioperasikan oleh aliansi maskapai tersebut. Maksud dari penerbangan codeshare adalah penerbangan yang dilakukan dua atau lebih maskapai berlatar belakang kerja sama yang mereka jalin.Ambil contoh Garuda Indonesia bekerja sama dengan maskapai bonafit asal Tiimur Tengah, Etihad. Garuda menjual tiket penerbangan menuju Manchester, walaupun Garuda tidak melayani penerbangan menuju Manchester. Berbekal bekerja sama yang dibangun oleh Garuda dengan Etihad, maka penumpang yang membeli tiket Jakarta – Manchester akan terbang menggunakan maskapai Etihad.Ringkasnya, kode penerbangan adalah gabungan dari kode maskapai, xx (diisi dengan abjad), dan nomor penerbangan numerik, n(diisi dengan angka), ditambah opsional satu huruf “akhiran operasional” x(diisi dengan abjad). Jadi, format penuh dari sebuah kode penerbangan adalah xx.nnn.x.Setiap maskapai memiliki kode penerbangannya masing-masing, sesuai dengan ketentuan yang berlaku. Ambil contoh sebuah maskapai asal negeri kangguru, Qantas. Maskapai ini memiliki 2 kode penerbangan, yang membatasi antara penerbangan internasional dengan penerbangan domestik. Angka 1 sampai 399 digunakan maskapai asal Australia untuk melayani penerbangan internasional termasuk penerbangan codeshare, sedangkan 400 ke atas digunakan Qantas sebagai kode penerbangan domestik.Baca Juga: Mengenal Arti Kode “PK” di Badan Pesawat PenumpangKebanyakan, pihak maskapai menghindari penggunaan angka-angka yang dinilai membawa kesialan, seperti angka 13 dan 666. Walaupun tidak ada teori pasti mengenai pengguna angka tersebut dapat mengalami kesialan, namun kebanyakan pihak maskapai tetap menolak untuk menggunakannya. Lain halnya dengan American Airlines yang lebih memilih untuk “memuseumkan” nomor penerbangan 11 pada rute penerbangan Boston – Los Angeles. Bukan tanpa alasan, ini merupakan sebuah penghormatan terhadap tragedi pada 11 September 2001 silam, dimana sebuah pesawat boeing 707 milik maskapai tersebut dibajak sebelum akhirnya ditabrakkan ke gedung World Trade Center.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedKode Bandara Mudahkan Penumpang dan Pekerja Penerbangan25/04/2017In “Bandara”Yuk, Cari Tahu Makna Tersembunyi di Balik Nomor Penerbangan18/04/2018In “Domestik”Mengenal Arti Kode “PK” di Badan Pesawat Penumpang09/12/2019In “Bandara”last_img read more
