SLC goes to FCID over attempted financial fraud

The fraudulent act was found, before it was executed through bogus means. SLC said that it was able to successfully avoid a fraudulent attempt to transfer US$ 5.5 million of SLC’s Media Rights Sponsorship funds, which was due from an International Media Network to an offshore account. The Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) has filed a complaint at the Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) over an attempted financial fraud.SLC said that there was an attempted fraud of USD 5 million in relation to the broadcasting rights of the upcoming England tour to Sri Lanka. Meanwhile Sri Lanka Cricket under the instructions of the CEO, has decided to launch an audit inquiry into all the financial transactions, conducted during the past one year period. (Colombo Gazette) Sri Lanka Cricket’s CEO Ashley De Silva lodged a complaint with the the Financial Crimes Investigation Division on the direction of the Minister of Sports Faiszer Musthapa this afternoon (10th September; 2018) to probe the attempted fraud.”Sri Lanka Cricket wish to state here, while accepting that an act of this nature is highly damaging for an organization of international repute such as SLC, we are happy to note that due to the internal due diligence process of the SLC, we were able to avoid the fraud;’’ said CEO of SLC, Ashley De Silva. read more

McDonalds 1stquarter profit slips as sales remain weak April modestly positive

NEW YORK, N.Y. – McDonald’s is fighting to hold onto customers in the U.S.The world’s biggest hamburger chain said sales at established U.S. locations fell 1.7 per cent in the first three months of the year as guest counts declined. After a decade of consistent growth, sales also declined last year as McDonald’s struggled to roll out an array of new menu items and fend off competitors.CEO Don Thompson said in call with analysts and investors Tuesday that the company is working to improve its operations and marketing in key regions, including the U.S.“It’s important to underscore it will take time for consumers to notice the changes and reward us with increased visits,” he said.While acknowledging that McDonald’s continues to face numerous challenges, Thompson stressed that the decline in U.S. guest counts in the latest quarter was largely the result of severe weather. Last week, however, Chipotle said its sales rose 13.4 per cent on stronger customer traffic.The disappointing performance in the U.S. reflects the struggles McDonald’s is facing as people flock to chains that position themselves as higher-quality alternatives. Thompson has noted that people with more spending money increasingly seem to be heading to such chains and that McDonald’s needs to focus on underscoring value for its more cash-strapped customers.The focus on keeping prices affordable has pressured profit margins, particularly given rising costs for ingredients. In the U.S., McDonald’s said its ingredient costs rose 3 per cent, driven primarily by protein. Inflation is expected to continue at a similar level for the second quarter before easing in the second half of the year.In the meantime, McDonald’s is trying to adapt to shifting eating trends in a variety of ways, including the rollout of new prep tables in the U.S. that can hold more sauces and toppings.The idea is to eventually offer greater customization on its menu while keeping orders easy to assemble for workers. Speed and accuracy have been an issue for McDonald’s as it stepped up the pace of new menu items.McDonald’s, which has more than 35,000 locations around the world, said global sales for April are expected to be modestly positive with “market dynamics” expected to remain similar to 2013.For the quarter ended March 31, sales rose 1.4 per cent at established locations in Europe and 0.8 per cent in the unit encompassing Asia, the Middle East and Africa, offsetting the decline in the U.S. Overall, global sales edged up 0.5 per cent.Profit fell to $1.2 billion, or $1.21 per share. Analysts expected $1.24 per share, according to FactSet.A year ago, the company earned $1.27 billion, or $1.26 per share. McDonald’s Corp. noted that the year-ago results were boosted by income tax benefits.Revenue edged up to $6.7 billion, but was shy of the $6.71 billion Wall Street expected.Shares of the Oak Brook, Ill., company edged down 10 cents to $99.57 in afternoon trading.___Follow Candice Choi at www.twitter.com/candicechoi FILE – This Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014, file photo shows McDonald’s restaurant’s golden arches in Robinson Township, Pa.

France the ideal setting for Leinsters exciting attack to be unleashed again

first_img EVERYONE ATTACHED TO Leinster is excited. A Champions Cup semi-final tends to bring that, of course, but the anticipation is about more than the occasion. It centres around the way Leinster have been playing in recent times.They have been a thrilling attacking force for much of this season and the latest chance to see them put Stuart Lancaster’s ambitious philosophy into action is simply exciting. Robbie Henshaw will be key in midfield again. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHOBut even with Clermont’s clear talent and their sheer desperation to give themselves another final shot at a Champions Cup crown, Leinster have enough to win away from home and face into the daunting task of taking down Saracens.Whether that proves to be the case or not, we should expect Leinster to provide the thrills once again.

Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHOIt’s unlikely that Leinster will close up against Clermont today [KO 3pm Irish time, Sky Sports] after a European campaign of offloading cleverly and scoring tries freely.The players are more engaged than ever in wearing their provincial jersey, the coaching staff appear to be totally confident in what they’re preaching, and Leinster’s supporters are proud to be behind a team that plays with this kind of attacking style.The intent and execution that Leinster showed in the quarter-final against Wasps is the template.Joey Carbery’s kick return, Tadhg Furlong’s passing ability, Robbie Henshaw’s intelligent partnership with Garry Ringrose, Jack Conan’s dynamism and energy, Jack McGrath and Devin Toner’s work rate – the reasons to be convinced Leinster can win against Clermont this afternoon are multiple.Of course, playing in France is a great challenge and anyone who thinks Clermont’s journey to Lyon will dampen their advantage should wait to hear and see what an extra 20,000 of these brilliant, rugby-loving lunatics bring to the occasion in a bigger stadium.But in a way, seeing Leinster open up the way they did against Wasps, on French soil this time, would be fitting.There is a Leinster link in the Clermont ranks, with Jono Gibbes heading into the final months of his time in charge of the Top 14 side’s forward pack before he moves to Ulster this summer in a bid to help the northern province turn their ship around. Camille Lopez and Aurelien Rougerie start in the backline. Source: Billy Stickland/INPHOFormer All Black Gibbes would be frustrated to leave the Auvergne without helping ASM over the line in the Champions Cup, and he has a formidable pack to send thundering at Leinster today, particularly with Sébastien Vahaamahina, Davit Zirakashvili and Benjamin Kayser unsurprisingly coming through injury issues that the French club highlighted early in the week.As is always the case, Clermont are a slick machine when they get dominance up front, though they have shown flaws this season too. Ulster chopped their defence to shreds in a pool stage win over Franck Azéma’s men, while their Top 14 form has not always been totally convincing.Leinster’s pack was hit with a blow this week when Sean O’Brien was forced out with a hamstring issue that he will hope to nip in the bud, but while they lose in experience at openside, Dan Leavy is a more than capable replacement.Indeed, having Leavy in the seven shirt alongside Conan and the steady influence of Rhys Ruddock seems rather fitting in a season where new stars have emerged for Leo Cullen’s side.One of those men has missed out, admittedly, with Adam Byrne omitted from the match day squad altogether. He is still learning how to defend at the top level and Fergus McFadden was mightily impressive coming on against Wasps, offloading for Conan’s try and scoring one of his own in the second half.Zane Kirchner’s versatility gets him the nod in the 23 shirt to Byrne’s frustration but it is difficult to pick holes in the Leinster squad. Cian Healy’s absence through suspension is a disappointment, but Peter Dooley fits the bill for a province that has invested in youth.Johnny Sexton is the guiding hand overseeing those who continue to learn about top-level European rugby and his composure will be vital, particularly with opposite number Camille Lopez capable of making game-changing plays and freeing the impactful Remi Lamerat in midfield.last_img read more

Des faisceaux lumineux capables de transporter 25 térabits de données par seconde

first_imgDes faisceaux lumineux capables de transporter 2,5 térabits de données par secondeUne équipe de chercheurs américains et israéliens est parvenue via des faisceaux lumineux à transporter quelque 2,5 térabits de données – soit la capacité de plus de 66 DVD – par seconde. Une prouesse obtenue grâce à la technique connue sous le nom de moment cinétique orbital des vagues, un cas particulier de moment cinétique quantique.Des chercheurs israéliens et américains ont réussi à créer le réseau sans fil le plus rapide jamais obtenu. Grâce à leur technique, basée sur la manipulation du moment cinétique orbital des vagues, qui pourrait être utilisé d’ici à quelque années afin d’augmenter de façon considérable le débit des réseaux sans fil et de la fibre optique. Cette expérience est expliquée dans la revue Nature Photonics. Elle aurait permis aux chercheurs de transmettre via des faisceaux lumineux torsadés quelque 2,5 térabits de données par seconde. Une vitesse jamais atteinte.Le moment cinétique de la lumière est un concept de la mécanique quantique très complexe, qui peut être mieux compris si on le compare à celui de la Terre. Notre planète atteint un moment cinétique de rotation en tournant autour de son axe (SAM), et un moment angulaire orbital en tournant autour du soleil (OAM), explique le site de la BBC. La lumière peut elle aussi connaître ces moments et la technique mise au point par les chercheurs utilise les deux à la fois.Les physiciens de l’Université de Californie du Sud, du Laboratoire Jet Propulsion de la Nasa, et de l’Université de Tel Aviv ont crée deux ensembles constituées de torsades de quatre faisceaux de lumière contenant des flux de données de 300 Gbit/s et les ont soumis, chacun, à un niveau différents de torsion OAM. “L’idée n’est pas de créer des ondes lumineuses remuant dans des directions différentes, mais plutôt avec des niveaux différents de torsion, comme des vis avec des nombres différents de fils” explique la BBC. Les deux ensembles ont été filtrés pour obtenir différentes polarisations, et regroupés en un faisceau unique, ils ont permis la transmission d’environ 2,5 térabits par seconde.Ces expériences ont pour l’heure été réalisées sur une distance de seulement un mètre environ, et le professeur Willner, qui a dirigé l’étude, admet des difficultés d’adaptation pour de plus longues distances de transfert.”L’un des défis majeurs demeure la turbulence dans l’atmosphère. Dans des situations nécessitant une grande capacité sur des distances relativement courtes, de moins d’un kilomètre, cette approche pourrait être attrayante. Bien sûr, il y a aussi des possibilités de communications à longue distance par satellite dans l’espace, où la turbulence n’est pas un problème” explique le chercheur.Un long travail reste donc à accomplir avant d’envisager une utilisation de cette technique pour les réseaux sans fil et la fibre optique, mais elle n’en demeure pas moins extrêmement prometteuse.Le 2 juillet 2012 à 10:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Remnants of Harvey still powerful enough to threaten floods

first_imgHOUSTON — Even a week after it slammed into the Texas coast, Harvey retained enough rain-making power Friday to raise the risk of flooding as far north as Indiana. Back in Houston, officials tried to safeguard parts of their devastated city by intentionally flooding others.The mayor announced plans to release water from two reservoirs that could keep as many as 20,000 homes flooded for up to 15 days.In another Texas city with no drinking water, people waited in a line that stretched for more than a mile to get bottled water while others awaited evacuation flights.Residents of the still-flooded western part of Houston were told Friday to evacuate ahead of the planned release from two reservoirs protecting downtown. The move was expected to flood homes that were inundated earlier in the week. Homes that are not currently flooded probably will not be affected, officials said.It could take three months for the Addicks and Barker reservoirs, which are normally dry, to drain. The Harris County Flood Control District said it had to continue releasing water to protect their structural integrity and in case more heavy rain falls.Some of the affected houses have several feet (meters) of water in them, and the water reaches to the rooftops of others, district meteorologist Jeff Lindner said.last_img read more

5 dead as SUV being chased crashes in South Texas

first_imgBIG WELLS, Texas — At least five people were killed and several others hurt Sunday as an SUV carrying more than a dozen people during a suspected “smuggling event” crashed while fleeing from Border Patrol agents in South Texas, authorities said.The SUV carrying 14 people went out of control at more than 100 mph and overturned on Texas Highway 85, ejecting most of the occupants, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said.“From what we can tell the vehicle ran off the road and caught gravel and then tried to recorrect,” Boyd said, adding that “caused the vehicle to turn over several times.”Four victims were dead at the scene, Boyd said. He said at least one and possibly two others died at a hospital.The Border Patrol said in a statement Sunday night that two other vehicles had been traveling alongside the SUV earlier in the day. An agent suspected they were conducting a “smuggling event,” according to the statement, which did not elaborate.The border agent stopped one of the vehicles and another agent stopped a second one. Multiple people from both vehicles were arrested.The third vehicle kept going when agents encountered it, and a sheriff’s deputy took over the chase prior to the fatal crash, the border patrol said.last_img read more

50000 illegal structures dot Vijayawada

first_imgAmaravati: Will the state government take up demolition of all illegal structures and give a new look to the city of Vijayawada? This is the issue that has become a major topic of debate everywhere whether it is social gatherings or political meetings. The firm affirmation by Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy at the collectors’ conference that his government was committed to demolish all illegal structures and set an example for future generations has raised this issue. Also Read – Students told to make Swatch Bharat a success: Collector Mohammad Imtiaz Advertise With Us The way the government pulled down Praja Vedika constructed by the previous government and the speed with which the authorities served notices to illegal constructions along the riverbed, including the rented house where the former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is staying has raised the curiosity among the people. According to estimates, there are nearly 50,000 illegal structures including houses, shops and business establishments in Vijayawada city and outskirts. While some are on canal bunds others are on hills and have been constructed decades back. It is said that two lakh people are living in these structures. Also Read – Vice-Prez to flag off Gudur Superfast Express Advertise With Us In the past also the earlier governments had identified the structures as illegal and served notices.

Buy Minnesotas Very Own Harry Potter House For Just Three Million Bucks

first_img Toy Tuesday: The Best Animal ToysGrab Your Wand: ‘Harry Potter: Wizards Unite’ Launches June 21 Stay on target Remember that time in 2011 when, after the release of Deathly Hallows Part 2, it really seemed like Harry Potter was going to go away for a bit? What fools we were. Voldemort may die but #brands never will. Harry Potter theme parks. Five-part Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts prequel franchises. Tech-powered Harry Potter wand toys. Harry Potter AR mobile games. Prepare for this to be the rest of your non-magical life.But if that sounds good to you, maybe it’s time to take your whimsical Wizarding World love to the next level. Why not straight-up live in a house that looks like it came out of Harry Potter? With a few million dollars and tolerance for Minnesota winters, now you can.In 2002 restaurant owner/musician Jeff Arundel purchased a downtown Minneapolis property, 247 10th Avenue S. By 2009 he had turned it into a castle ripped from the pages of a fantasy novel. It’s just his thing. With three beds and baths, a courtyard and rooftop deck, and 4,500-square-feet of space the place is also totally liveable in addition to being beautiful to look at. See it for yourself in this virtual tour.However, now Arundel has somehow become tired of living in a castle and has put his Harry Potter house up for sale. A brewery nearly made a deal but it fell through. So now locals are flocking to get their bids in. The home is listed at $2,995,000, which honestly seems like a small price to live in a house where the paintings probably talk. Also, most potential buyers want to turn it into a business of some kind since that’s pretty much what everything else in downtown is, and when the building looks like this it should pay for itself in no time.At the moment, the castle is still on the market. So if you’ve got a couple million dollars lying around and Harry Potter love to spare try making a go for it. And even if you couldn’t care less for wizards, it’s probably still dope to live in an actual castle, even in Minnesota.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Physicists propose a second level of quantization for quantum Shannon theory

first_img For identical quantum channels, order matters In the past two decades, physicists have been developing a quantum version of information theory in which the internal state of each information carrier has quantum properties, such as superposition—the ability to occupy two or more classical states at once. But the transmission lines are generally still assumed to be classical, so that the path taken by messages in space is always well-defined.Now in a new paper, physicists Giulio Chiribella and Hlér Kristjánsson at the University of Oxford and the University of Hong Kong have proposed a second level of quantization, in which both the information carriers and the channels can be in quantum superposition. In this new paradigm of communication, the information carriers can travel through multiple channels simultaneously. “This work provides the foundation for a new theory of communication where the propagation of information in space and time is treated quantum mechanically,” Chiribella told Phys.org. “It opens up new avenues for quantum communication networks and for a future quantum internet, where data could be sent from a sender to a receiver through multiple quantum servers. Exploiting the interference of different communication paths, it will be possible to communicate more efficiently and more securely. At the fundamental level, the transmission of messages along multiple trajectories could give rise to fundamental tests of the quantum nature of spacetime.”This channel superposition phenomenon can be observed in the famous double-slit experiment, in which a single photon seems to pass through two slits at once. Even though just a single photon is used, the photon creates an interference pattern on the detector. The best explanation for the interference pattern is that the photon interfered with itself, like a wave, after simultaneously traveling through both slits along two different paths. Journal information: Proceedings of the Royal Society A Information theory, which was developed by Claude Shannon starting in the late 1940s, deals with questions such as how quickly information can be sent over a noisy communications channel. Both the information carriers (e.g., photons) and the channel (e.g., optical fiber cable) are assumed to be classical systems, with well-defined, perfectly distinguishable states. When an information carrier is allowed to travel through two communications channels simultaneously, it can offer advantages such as reduced noise (due to the interference of noise on different paths) and a higher channel capacity. These advantages have been demonstrated in recent experiments with photons. In the new paper, the physicists had to confront some of the challenges involved in incorporating the superposition of channels into a quantum theory of information. One of the challenges is to describe the superposition of channels in a compositional way, so that the behavior of a channel can be predicted when it is used in combination with other channels. A second challenge is that the superposition of internal states of the information carriers must be clearly separated from the superposition of paths. Otherwise, the path itself becomes part of the message, and the system can be described using the conventional quantum framework. By addressing these challenges, the physicists formulated a quantum communications model that can be used to compute the amount of information that can be reliably transmitted when using a given number of channels in a quantum superposition. Counterintuitively, the physicists showed that, for certain types of noise, the superposition of channels, along with the ability to switch a channel with itself, could be used to completely remove all noise. This opens up the possibility of obtaining perfect quantum communication in a noisy channel.”Our work defined a communication model and provided a few proof-of-principle examples,” Chiribella said. “However, this has only scratched the surface of what can be accomplished with the superposition of quantum communication channels. We are now exploring the power of correlations among them. If two trajectories visit the same region, the process experienced by the information carrier in the first trajectory can be correlated with the process experienced in the second trajectory. By taking advantage of these correlations in a clever way, it is possible to enhance the communication performance beyond what can be done with the superposition of independent channels. Getting ahold of these correlations will give us new insights into the peculiar ways in which quantum information propagates in space and time.” Explore further More information: Giulio Chiribella and Hlér Kristjánsson. “Quantum Shannon theory with superpositions of trajectories.” Proceedings of the Royal Society A.

Physical fitness may boost kids academic performance

first_imgChildren who go in for physical fitness may possess a greater volume of gray matter that may help enhance their academic performance, reveals a new finding. Physical fitness especially cardiorespiratory fitness, speed-agility and muscular fitness, leads to the presence of more gray matter in the brain.Increase in grey matter in various regions of the brain boosts learning, functioning and reading processes of the child, the researchers said, in the paper published in the journal Neuroimage. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Our work aims at answering questions such as whether the brain of children with better physical fitness is different from that of children with worse physical fitness and if this affects their academic performance,” said a researcher at the University of Grenada in Spain.”The answer is short and forceful: yes, physical fitness in children is linked in a direct way to important brain structure differences, and such differences are reflected in the children’s academic performance,” Ortega added.”Physical fitness is a factor that can be modified through physical exercise, and combining exercises that improve the aerobic capacity and the motor ability would be an effective approach to stimulate brain development and academic performance in overweight/obese children.”last_img read more

The 10 best cloud and infrastructure conferences happening in 2019

first_imgThe latest Gartner report suggests that the cloud market is going to grow an astonishing 17.3% ($206 billion) in 2019, up from $175.8 billion in 2018. By 2022, the report claims, 90% of organizations will be using cloud services. But the cloud isn’t one thing, and 2019 is likely to bring the diversity of solutions, from hybrid to multi-cloud, to serverless, to the fore. With such a mix of opportunities and emerging trends, it’s going to be essential to keep a close eye on key cloud computing and software infrastructure conferences throughout the year. These are the events where we’ll hear the most important announcements, and they’ll probably also be the place where the most important conversations happen too. But with so many cloud computing conferences dotted throughout the year, it’s hard to know where to focus your attention. For that very reason, we’ve put together a list of some of the best cloud computing conferences taking place in 2019. #1 Google Cloud Next When and where is Google Cloud Next 2019 happening? April 9-11 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. What is it? This is Google’s annual global conference focusing on the company’s cloud services and products, namely Google Cloud Platform. At previous events, Google has announced enterprise products such as G Suite and Developer Tools. The three-day conference features demonstrations, keynotes, announcements, conversations, and boot camps. What’s happening at Google Cloud Next 2019? This year Google Cloud Next has more than 450 sessions scheduled. You can also meet directly with Google experts in artificial intelligence and machine learning, security, and software infrastructure. Themes covered this year include application development, architecture, collaboration, and productivity, compute, cost management, DevOps and SRE, hybrid cloud, and serverless. The conference may also serve as a debut platform for new Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian. Who’s it for? The event is a not-to-miss event for IT professionals and engineers, but it will also likely attract entrepreneurs. For those of us who won’t attend, Google Cloud Next will certainly be one of the most important conferences to follow. Early bird registration begins from March 1 for $999. #2 OpenStack Infrastructure Summit When and where is OpenStack Infrastructure Summit 2019 happening? April 29 – May 1 in Denver. What is it? The OpenStack Infrastructure Summit, previously the OpenStack Summit, is focused on open infrastructure integration and has evolved over the years to cover more than 30 different open source projects.  The event is structured around use cases, training, and related open source projects. The summit also conducts Project Teams Gathering, just after the main conference (this year May 2-4). PTG provides meeting facilities, allowing various technical teams contributing to OSF (Open Science Framework) projects to meet in person, exchange ideas and get work done in a productive setting. What’s happening at this year’s OpenStack Infrastructure Summit? This year the summit is expected to have almost 300 sessions and workshops on Container Infrastructure, CI/CD, Telecom + NFV, Public Cloud, Private & Hybrid Cloud, Security etc. The Summit is going to have members of open source communities like Airship, Ansible, Ceph, Docker, Kata Containers, Kubernetes, ONAP, OpenStack, Open vSwitch, OPNFV, StarlingX, Zuul among other topics. Who’s it for? This is an event for engineers working in operations and administration. If you’re interested in OpenStack and how the foundation fits into the modern cloud landscape there will certainly be something here for you. #3 DockerCon When and where is DockerCon 2019 happening? April 29 to May 2 at Moscone West, San Francisco. What is it? DockerCon is perhaps the container event of the year. The focus is on what’s happening across the Docker world, but it will offer plenty of opportunities to explore the ways Docker is interacting and evolving with a wider ecosystem of tools. What’s happening at DockerCon 2019? This three-day conference will feature networking opportunities and hands-on labs. It will also hold an exposition where innovators will showcase their latest products. It’s expected to have over 6,000 attendees with 5+ tracks and 100 sessions. You’ll also have the opportunity to become a Docker Certified Associate with an on-venue test. Who’s it for? The event is essential for anyone working in and around containers – so DevOps, SRE, administration and infrastructure engineers. Of course, with Docker finding its way into the toolsets of a variety of roles, it may be useful for people who want to understand how Docker might change the way they work in the future.  Pricing for DockerCon runs from around $1080 for early-bird reservations to $1350 for standard tickets. #4 Red Hat Summit When and where is Red Hat Summit 2019 happening? May 7–9 in Boston. What is it? Red Hat Summit is an open source technology event run by Red Hat. It covers a wide range of topics and issues, essentially providing a snapshot of where the open source world is at the moment and where it might be going. With open source shaping cloud and other related trends, it’s easy to see why the event could be important for anyone with an interest in cloud and infrastructure. What’s happening at Red Hat Summit 2019? The theme for this year is AND. The copy on the event’s website reads: AND is about scaling your technology and culture in whatever size or direction you need, when you need to, with what you actually need―not a bunch of bulky add-ons. From the right foundation―an open foundation―AND adapts with you. It’s interoperable, adjustable, elastic. Think Linux AND Containers. Think public AND private cloud. Think Red Hat AND you. There’s clearly an interesting conceptual proposition at the center of this year’s event that hints at how Red Hat wants to get engineers and technology buyers to think about the tools they use and how they use them. Who’s it for? The event is big for any admin or engineer that works with open source technology – Linux in particular (so, quite a lot of people…). Given Red Hat was bought by IBM just a few months ago in 2018, this event will certainly be worth watching for anyone interested in the evolution of both companies as well as open source software more broadly. #5 KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe When and where is KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2019?

Beyond Lyme new illnesses more reason to watch for ticks

first_imgResearchers then analyzed medical records from 51 of those patients, and found symptoms typically include a high fever, severe headache, chills and blood abnormalities — decreases in infection-fighting and blood-clotting cells. About a quarter of patients were hospitalized, although Imugen medical director Dr. Philip Molloy cautioned that’s probably because doctors are seeking testing only for their sickest, most puzzling patients.The bacterium is carried by deer ticks, also known as blacklegged ticks, which also can spread Lyme and two other illnesses, babesiosis and anaplasmosis.IT’S NOT THE ONLY NEW WORRYTwo new tick-borne viruses were recently discovered in the Midwest, and neither has a specific treatment.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed nine cases of Heartland virus, and one death, with other reports under investigation, said CDC entomologist Roger Nasci. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, headaches, muscle aches, diarrhea and low blood counts. Identified in Missouri, the virus also was reported in Tennessee and Oklahoma, although the Lone Star tick that spreads it lives around the East and Southeast.Then there’s the Bourbon virus, with similar symptoms, discovered last year after the death of a Kansas man and named for his home county. Another patient, in Oklahoma, recovered. The Kansas man had found an embedded tick days before getting sick, and CDC researchers are searching for the culprit species. “People need to be aware of what tick-borne diseases are in their area,” says Dr. Peter J. Krause of Yale University, a specialist who reviewed the research. “And they should know how to avoid ticks.”WHAT’S THIS NEW INFECTION?The first U.S. case was reported in 2013 in New Jersey, an 80-year-old cancer survivor who over four months became increasingly confused, had difficulty walking and lost 30 pounds. Doctors found spiral-shaped bacteria in her spinal fluid that looked like Lyme but caused a relapsing fever more closely related to some other tick-borne illnesses. While treatable by antibiotics — the woman recovered — doctors know little about B. miyamotoi.Monday’s study offers some clues. Researchers with Imugen Inc., a Massachusetts testing lab, tested blood samples from patients in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey and New York whose doctors suspected tick-borne illnesses and used that lab. During the 2013 and 2014 tick seasons the lab found 97 cases of the new infection. That’s roughly 1 percent of samples tested and close to the lab’s detection of a better-known tick disease named anaplasmosis, researchers reported in Annals of Internal Medicine. More research is needed to determine just how prevalent the disease is.

All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Sponsored Stories WASHINGTON (AP) — Lyme disease makes the headlines but there are plenty of additional reasons to avoid tick bites. New research highlights the latest in a growing list of tick-borne threats — a distant relative of Lyme that’s easy to confuse with other illnesses.Monday’s study suggests a kind of bacteria with an unwieldy name — Borrelia miyamotoi — should be on the radar when people in Lyme-endemic areas get otherwise unexplained summertime fevers. It’s one of several recently discovered diseases linked to ticks in different parts of the country, a reminder to get tick-savvy no matter where you live. HOW MANY DISEASES CAN TICKS SPREAD?The CDC counts 14 illnesses linked to specific U.S. tick species, not including the Bourbon virus still being studied.Lyme is the most common, with about 30,000 cases reported each year, although CDC has estimated that the true number could be 10 times higher. It’s too early to know how widespread the newly discovered illnesses are. But people can be infected with more than one tick-borne illness simultaneously, complicating care.NO REASON TO STAY INDOORSHealth officials stress that it’s important to enjoy the outdoors and get physical activity. Infections are more common in some parts of the country than others, and there are effective protections.“A lot of people get very concerned about any tick bite,” said Nasci, who heads CDC’s arboviral diseases branch. “Not every tick is infected.”If you are bitten, remove the tick as soon as possible.PREVENTION IS BESTNo matter where you live, CDC’s advice is similar.–Shower soon after being outdoors to spot ticks more easily, and check pets that can carry ticks inside.–If you’ve been in tick-infested areas, carefully do a full-body check, including under arms, behind knees, ears and hair.center_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober FILE – In this March 18, 2002 file photo, a deer tick is seen under a microscope in the entomology lab at the University of Rhode Island in South Kingstown, R.I.
