BC baby who put spiny caterpillar in mouth recovering well after treatment

first_imgNANAIMO, B.C. – An eight-month-old baby who put a spiny caterpillar in her mouth between munching on cookies is recovering in Nanaimo, B.C.Krystal Dawn Pavan said she and her daughter Kenzie Pyne were on their back deck when she started wailing last Thursday.Pavan said she assumed her daughter was cranky about nap time, until she tried to give her a bottle and noticed black marks in her mouth that looked like electrical burns.She rushed Kenzie to hospital, where doctors and nurses determined it was a caterpillar.“This caterpillar must have crawled out from my patio chair or something while she was sitting in front of me playing, decided to pick it up and pop it in her mouth,” Pavan told The Canadian Press in a Facebook message. “She was eating an Arrowroot cookie at the time so I didn’t notice any other objects around for her to possibly get a hold of.”Kenzie was transferred to a hospital in Victoria, where she was sedated so doctors could pluck the spines from her tongue and the inside of her cheek, she said.The little girl is back in high spirits and recovering well, Pavan said.She believes the caterpillar was a silver-spotted tiger moth, which has stinging hairs that can cause a burning sensation or rash in sensitive people.Claudia Copley, entomology collections manager for the Royal B.C. Museum, said she couldn’t confirm the species but that wooly caterpillars have spines to deter predators from eating them.“I know when you’re a baby you can’t help it, but this is a very unusual circumstance,” she said.In about 20 years of entomology work, Copley said she has never heard of a wooly caterpillar harming anyone, adding they can typically walk along someone’s finger without issues because they aren’t threatened.Copley gets lots of queries at this time of year about silver-spotted tiger moth caterpillars, which people notice because of their eyes, their large size and bright colours.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

Bird flu could have spread among two humans WHO reports

Dr. Klaus Stöhr, who is leading WHO’s response to the epidemic, described how at the end of last year, a family in Viet Nam had been cooking for a wedding party. The husband and one of his sisters prepared a duck on 3 January, and he fell sick on 6 January. Subsequently, the sister who prepared the duck with him also became ill, as did another sister who lived in the household as well as the husband’s wife.Lab samples from these cases were limited to only the two sisters, and so far, “what we found was that there was no other explanation for the case in one of the sisters and the wife, so we have to assume there may have been some human-to-human transmission,” Dr. Stöhr told a press briefing.While not ruling out the spread among people, he stressed that “This virus has not changed its characteristic epidemiological behaviour.”The latest developments, he said in response to questions, did not ratchet up WHO concern. “There is no further increase in the level of preparedness,” he noted. “We are still at pandemic phase zero – we have no pandemic.”“This small cluster which we cannot fully understand, we can consider this as an epidemiological anomaly perhaps, which we only bring up and investigate in the absence of another better explanation,” he stressed.“The thing is still in the box, it hasn’t come out,” he said. “If we sit on the lid, it will stay there, and we still have that window of opportunity open and nothing has changed in comparison to last week.” Asked about pandemic scenarios, he said it was possible that the virus would gradually mutate, changing characteristics so that it would be able to spread among humans rather than just from birds to humans.“The other way these viruses could perhaps obtain the genetic information for that human-to-human transmission possibility is by re-assortment,” he said, explaining that the avian viruses “perhaps would multiply in a cell while at the same time, human influenza viruses would exist and then the genetic information would be mixed.” Those new viruses would contain both the genetic information of the human influenza as well as the avian influenza virus. That would be “a more rapid step,” he added.Another scenario would be that “the avian virus would gradually change over time and then we would have a gradual increase in human-to-human transmission.” read more

Despite relative calm UNpatrolled separation zone in Côte dIvoire reported tense

UN peacekeepers continued to patrol sensitive areas in Abidjan, the largest city, to pre-empt any security risks to civilians 10 days after anti-French rioting and ethnic clashes erupted when French troops destroyed the Government’s air force in reprisal for the deadly bombing of French peacekeepers in the ZOC. With looters rampaging though Abidjan in the following days and harassing expatriates, thousands of Ivorians and foreigners, mainly French, have fled the country since 4 November, when government forces unleashed the latest crisis by attacking the northern rebels in violation of a nearly two-year-old ceasefire agreement. The UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), set up in April to monitor the ceasefire and help implement peace accords signed in January 2003, said today no international radio stations had been allowed to resume broadcasts and no opposition newspapers had reappeared, with the Government holding a monopoly over the media. The mission reported yesterday that hate broadcasts that had raised the spectre of further ethnic violence had given way to calls for restraint and a return to work, after the UN adviser on the prevention of genocide had warned that the situation could be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC). Today, UNOCI said that while official reaction to Monday’s Security Council resolution, imposing an immediate arms embargo and giving the parties one month to get the peace process back on track or face a travel ban and a freeze on their assets, has been a resolute desire to comply, these messages are interspersed with calls for the Young Patriot militants to remain mobilized. UNOCI Radio, meanwhile, is broadcasting peace messages, along with features and interviews on the economic and humanitarian effects of the crisis. In the rebel-held north, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that all checkpoints in Bouaké, the main city, had been dismantled and that electricity was re-established Monday night. Prices of basic food items have increased and fuel has skyrocketed by 100 per cent. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has distributed food for about 2,000 people in two orphanages and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has provided fuel to health centres to ensure that the cold chain for vaccines is not affected by the erratic supply of electricity. read more

Security Council endorses efforts to strengthen fight against terrorism

In a presidential statement read by the United Kingdom’s Deputy Permanent Representative Adam Thomson, the 15-member Council said it had reviewed its worldwide anti-terrorism effort, as carried out by the committee’s new Executive Directorate, and reaffirmed that “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.”After its closed-door review of the Committee’s report, the Council also noted that the Executive Directorate had only been fully staffed since 6 September and had only become operational last week. It welcomed the directorate’s start on its revitalization priorities.In March of last year, the Council said the Directorate would be responsible for such tasks as supporting and advising the Plenary (composed of the Security Council’s members and the Committee chairperson), ensuring the comprehensive follow-up of all of the Committee’s decisions, facilitating assistance to Member States, and supervising the collection of all relevant information. read more

US growth slows to 19 per cent annual rate in JanuaryMarch period

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted May 31, 2012 10:17 am MDT WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 1.9 per cent in the first three months of the year, slower than first estimated.The Commerce Department on Thursday lowered its estimate for January-March growth from an initial estimate of 2.2 per cent. The downward revision was largely because consumers and governments spent less than first estimated, businesses restocked more slowly, and the U.S. trade deficit grew sharply.Analysts believe the economy is growing at a slightly faster rate this spring. They estimate growth at an annual rate of between 2 per cent and 2.5 per cent in the April-June quarter. Many expect the economy will maintain that pace for all of 2012, an improvement from last year’s 1.7 per cent growth.Still, growth of 2.5 per cent is typically enough just to keep pace with population changes. Most economists say it takes almost twice as much growth to lower the unemployment rate by 1 percentage point over a year.The government offers three estimates for gross domestic product. GDP is the output of all goods and services, which includes everything from haircuts and coffee to airplanes and appliances.A rising trade deficit slows growth because the country is spending more on foreign-made products than it is taking in from sales of U.S.-made goods. Less restocking means companies ordered fewer goods, which decreases factory production and weighs on growth.Consumer spending grew at an annual rate of 2.7 per cent in the first quarter. While that was the fastest pace since the end of 2010, it was down from an initial estimate of 2.9 per cent. A key reason for the revision was fewer auto purchases.Government spending at all levels fell at a 3.9 per cent annual rate. That’s much more than the 3.0 per cent decline first estimated. It was the sixth straight quarter that government spending has declined, reflecting budget constraints at the federal, state and local levels.Still, Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, pointed out that a number of components were revised higher. Among them was housing, which is beginning to show signs of a modest recovery after a prolonged period of weakness.Economists expect growth to pick up slightly this spring because of steady job growth and lower gas prices. Both allow consumers to spend more freely. Consumer spending drives 70 per cent of economic activity.And more demand from consumers leads businesses to step up restocking, which also boosts growth.One fear is that Europe’s debt crisis could deepen. It has already rattled U.S. financial markets. And it could further dampen demand for U.S. exports.Personal income after deducting taxes rose 0.4 per cent in the first three months of the year. But the government sharply revised down its estimate of after-tax income growth in the fourth quarter of last year to only 0.2 per cent. That’s down from the previous estimate of 1.7 per cent.People financed their increase in spending by saving less. The savings rate fell to 3.6 per cent of disposable income in the first quarter. That was down from 4.2 per cent in the first quarter and was the lowest savings rate since it stood at 2.5 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2007.The unemployment rate has fallen a full percentage point since August — from 9.1 per cent to 8.1 per cent last month. Part of the season for the drop is that employers added 1.5 million jobs during that time. But it has also declined because some people have grown discouraged and given up looking for work. The government only counts people as unemployed if they are actively looking for a job.Some fear that means the job market could be weakening. But economists have cautioned that a warm winter led companies to move up some hiring that normally wouldn’t occur until spring. That gave the appearance that the economy had strengthened in January and February and weakened in early spring.The government reports Friday on May job growth. Economists expect 158,000 jobs created, slightly better than the past two months but far below the winter’s pace. They also expect no change in the unemployment rate.One positive development this month: gas prices have fallen sharply.A gallon of regular unleaded has dropped by 31 cents since peaking in the first week of April. U.S. retail gasoline prices fell by a penny Wednesday to $3.63 per gallon, according to auto club AAA.Experts see gas falling to at least $3.50 by July 4. US growth slows to 1.9 per cent annual rate in January-March period, weaker than first thought read more

Ban calls for deescalation of tensions amid new violence in Gaza and

“The Secretary-General reiterates his call for an immediate cessation of indiscriminate rocket attacks by Palestinian militants targeting Israel and strongly condemns these actions,” said a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson. “He calls on Israel to exercise maximum restraint.”According to media reports, sporadic missile fire from Gaza hit southern Israel today for a fourth straight day. Meanwhile, six Palestinians, including two militants, were reportedly killed in Israeli air strikes on Gaza, following an attack by militants on an army jeep. Israel has reportedly said it will intensify its actions if rocket-fire continues.Mr. Ban “deplores the loss of life and calls for an immediate de-escalation of tensions,” said the statement. “Both sides should do everything to avoid further escalation and must respect their obligations under international humanitarian law to ensure the protection of civilians at all times.”It was nearly four years ago that Israel launched Operation Cast Lead with the stated aim of trying to halt repeated rocket attacks against it from Gaza. More than 1,400 people were killed and at least 5,000 others were injured during the 23-day military offensive that began at the end of 2008. read more

DUP Terrorists are not vitcims

The DUP has called for the definition of a victim to be changed to ensure that an innocent victim of a bomb plot is not placed in the same legal category as a terrorist bombmaker.Arlene Foster, the leader of the Unionists, has expressed “major concerns” about how the Northern Ireland Office’s planned legislation to categorise paramilitaries injured during attacks in the same bracket as their targets or innocent bystanders.In a response to the Government consultation addressing the legacy of Northern Ireland’s past, she said: “In our opinion, there is a clear distinction in law between a terrorist perpetrator and their innocent victim. To equate the two is morally wrong and indefensible.“The Government should bring forward plans now to change the definition of a victim so there is a clear distinction made between perpetrators and victims.“We believe this could improve the existing climate and context and offer the best prospect of new bodies proving successful.”A Government consultation on addressing the legacy of past violence is closing, with bodies suggested including an Historical Investigations Unit (HIU) to seek criminal prosecutions and an information retrieval organisation. She added that without significant amendment any new legislation would not meet the objective of properly addressing the legacy of Northern Ireland’s past. A soldier patrols the Falls Road area of West Belfast in the pouring rain at the height of the TroublesCredit:RUSSELL BOYCE /Reuters She added: “The DUP considers the best opportunity for justice to come from an investigatory team with full police powers.“It is important that any new structures would be proportionate given that 90 percent of deaths were caused by terrorists, and there should be an end to witch hunts against those in the forces of law and order who acted bravely, honourably and appropriately.”Meanwhile, Sinn Fein said the Unionist’s stance was an attempt to introduce an amnesty for British state forces and could scupper the whole legal process.Sinn Fein MLA Linda Dillon said she backed the current definition of a victim that dates back to 2006, adding that all should be equal under the law.Sinn Fein has described as “appalling” the Police Federation for Northern Ireland’s (PFNI) stance on legacy issues.Serving police officers have urged the Government to scrap its “one-sided and unfair” legacy proposals for Northern Ireland.The Federation characterised the HIU as a parallel police service and said a suggested new offence of “non-criminal police misconduct” could be construed as another word for collusion.Sinn Fein policing spokesman Gerry Kelly said: “For the Police Federation to warn that PSNI officers and former RUC and PSNI officers will not co-operate with legally-constituted bodies dealing with the legacy of the conflict is appalling.” A soldier patrols the Falls Road area of West Belfast in the pouring rain at the height of the Troubles He challenged the Federation to clarify whether its members are withholding information about past crimes, following comments by its chairman Mark Lindsay.

The Bahamas ReElected to the International Maritime Organization Council

Katherine Wilson Ageing population intensifies need for caring policies

first_imgOne in nine workers in the UK care for a family member or friend who is older, disabled or ill, according to the 2011 Census. The pressures of juggling work and care, without the right support from employers or local services, have forced millions of people to give up work or reduce their hours to care, at a cost to the economy of £1.3 billion a year, according to the London School of Economics’ study, Public expenditure costs of carers leaving employment, published in April 2012.The business case for supporting working carers is clear; it leads to greater staff retention, less absenteeism, improved resilience, performance and productivity, and a healthier bottom line.Significant developments in employee rights in recent years mean that there is also a strong legal case for supporting working carers. All employees with 26 weeks’ service for their employer now have the right to request flexible-working arrangements and time off work to deal with an emergency involving a dependant. Carers are also entitled to greater protection against discrimination because of their caring responsibilities.By recognising carers’ legal rights in existing policies and procedures, or in a specific carers policy, employers can begin to future-proof their business against the challenges of an ageing workforce and an increasingly competitive economic environment.While many employers have put the building blocks in place to support employees who currently have or may have caring responsibilities in the future, many employers still have a long way to go.Our ageing population means that the already significant number of people combining work and care is set to soar. This, alongside growing evidence about the negative impact that caring, if unsupported, can have on staff resilience, productivity, and retention, means that caring is an issue businesses cannot afford to ignore.Katherine Wilson is strategic employment manager at Carers UKlast_img read more

USPS Posts Another Net Loss in Fiscal Year 2016

first_img “Despite the positive trends in some aspects of its business, the net loss suffered by the Postal Service this year cannot be ignored,” the statement reads. “Even with continued proactive and aggressive management, such losses are likely to persist for the foreseeable future because of mandated costs such as an unaffordable retiree health benefits program … and an ineffective pricing system.” The periodicals class dipped 5.1 percent in volume and 5 percent in revenue, to 5.54 billion units and $1.51 billion, respectively. Losses in the category accelerated over those observed last year, when volume fell 3.4 percent, and outpaced overall losses for the agency — the “standard mail” and “shipping and packages” categories actually saw increases in 2016. The periodicals class accounted for 3.5 percent of the agency’s overall mail volume, down slightly from 3.8 percent a year ago. The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) concluded its 2016 fiscal year by reporting a tenth straight annual net loss. The agency lost $5.6 billion in FY 2016, which concluded on September 30, a slight increase over the $5.1 billion loss reported in FY 2015, and the $5.5 billion bled in 2014. Absent the expense of the mandated health benefit program, the USPS says it would have posted a $200 million gain in 2016. Still, the benefits package makes up a small portion of the agency’s overall expenses, which jumped 4.2 percent to $77.09 billion compared to 2015. Total operating revenue increased as well, albeit more slowly, from $68.79 billion in 2015 to $71.43 billion this year, an increase of 3.8 percent. In perhaps its most strongly worded public statement to date, the USPS blamed the loss on an “unaffordable” retiree health benefits program, which carried a $5.8 billion prefunding obligation. “This is why legislative and regulatory reforms remain critical for us to meet the needs of the American public now and well into the future,” said Postmaster General Megan Brennan, in the statement. Not helping the financial situation was the April expiration of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s exigency surcharge, a 4.3 percent premium applied to all classes of mail since January 2014, designed to help the USPS recoup some $4 billion in lost revenue. Despite reaching its recovery goal, the USPS has made clear its desire to reinstate the surcharge, arguing that it really needs around $12 billion to reach solvency.last_img read more
