The animal study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, found the cocktail of two monoclonal antibodies was able to “almost completely block establishment of virus infection.” The cocktail also minimized infection in a second study in which animals were infected with a higher level of the virus, but the prophylactic effect was greatly diminished with a lower dose.

Water still rising in Chigwell, Hanover

first_imgWater still rising in Chigwell, Hanover Office of the Prime MinisterNovember 3, 2010 RelatedWater still rising in Chigwell, Hanover RelatedWater still rising in Chigwell, Hanover RelatedWater still rising in Chigwell, Hanovercenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Flood waters in the district of Chigwell, eastern Hanover, continued to rise Tuesday (November 2), even as disaster preparedness coordinators go on full alert, in preparation for the bad weather conditions likely to result from the latest weather system, Tomas.Disaster Preparedness Coordinator in Hanover, Olga Fae Headley, told JIS News that the flood water levels in the districts of Pearces Village and Forrest are subsiding, but continue to rise in Chigwell. She added that, while it was heartening to see that the water recede in Pearces Village and Forrest, there is still a great deal of land area covered by water.“Chigwell continues to rise at an alarming pace so, I guess, as the others go down, Chigwell goes up,” she stated.She posited the view that the situation is due to the fact that Chigwell is part of a land basin which is at a lower altitude than the other villages, and the underground drainage from those villages filters into Chigwell.Turning to the number of persons still displaced by flooding in the three districts, Mrs. Headley said that approximately 49 families are unable to return home.“There are 23 families in Forrest that are out of their homes, there are seven families in Pearces Village; so nobody has returned to their houses yet. They cannot return, even though the water is going down, and there are 19 families in Chigwell that, right now, are having problems,” she pointed out.Of the displaced families, only two are staying in an emergency shelter in Chigwell. The others are staying with friends and relatives in their respective districts.She said that a cooperative effort between the Hanover Parish Council, Hanover Health Department and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) should provide monitoring and control of the health situation in all three districts. Fish is being added to the flood waters as a means of vector control, and fogging is also being carried out.“I must warn the people in the area again, that they are not to swim in the water there are lots of bacteria in the water. The bodies of water are contaminated, so they should not be swimming in it,” she insisted.Mrs. Headley said that all shelter managers in the parish have been put on high alert, in preparation for the Tropical System Tomas. An emergency meeting, with all relevant agencies, will be held in the Lucea Town Hall on Wednesday (November 3), 2010. Advertisementslast_img read more

He added that CARICOM Secretary-General, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, who visited Montserrat earlier this year, had assured him that all courtesies and assistance would be granted as needed “to help Montserrat advance as a founding member of CARICOM, with the current new and revised arrangements of our Regional integration movement”. As a number of studies have shown, it is in the strategic interest of both CARICOM and Montserrat that we remain inclusive, particularly in the area of Natural resources, the environment and Climate Change,” he said.

Makkah – Madinah tenders sought

first_imgDOMESTIC AND international companies have been invited to submit tenders for construction of Saudi Arabia’s planned Western Railway linking Makkah, Jeddah and Madinah.The call for tenders by Saudi Railways Organisation marks a further step in the expansion of the kingdom’s rail network. The 444 km passenger line is expected to play a key role in moving millions of pilgrims who visit the two holy cities each year (RG 8.06 p447). Unlike the Saudi Landbridge between Jeddah and Riyadh, which is to be built and operated by the private sector under a BOT concession, construction of the Western Railway will be managed directly by SRO.The authorities in Makkah are also examining the feasibility of a light rail network to connect the station with the city’s holy sites including the Grand Mosque, Mina and Arafah.last_img read more

Asia Cup 2018- India vs. Afghanistan Review: Shahzad ton propels Afghanistan to a tie

first_imgAdvertisement bsjNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs2tdwk1Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Esonp( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) au57Would you ever consider trying this?😱b85uCan your students do this? 🌚9pRoller skating! Powered by Firework Image Courtesy: My KhelAdvertisement The contest between India and Afghanistan, considered dead rubber to many, turned out to be a match for the ages as the sides could not be separated after 100 overs of cricket.Advertisement The fixture began with a huge surprise as MS Dhoni took over the captaincy reigns over Rohit Sharma, who was rested alongside Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal. Deepak Chahar was handed his ODI debut and shared the new ball alongside Khaleel Ahmed.Afghanistan opener Mohammed Shahzad took advantage of the inexperienced bowling line-up as he smashed the ball to all corners of the ground en route to his 5th ODI hundred. Despite pulling things back in the middle overs, the Men In Blue could not stop Mohammed Nabi who notched up a half-century to steer the side to 252-8.Advertisement The new opening pair for India, KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu gave the Blues a perfect start. With both the openers scoring their respective half-centuries, India seemed in for an early finish similar to their early games, but a collapse in the middle order that has hardly been tested this tournament brought the game right down the wire.With wickets falling at the other end courtesy of a few rash shots and poor umpiring, Ravindra Jadeja kept his calm and took the game to the last over with 7 required. Prodigal leg-spinner Rashid Khan took over the responsibility and managed to defend the score by dismissing Jadeja of the penultimate ball of the innings.Brief Scorecard:Afghanistan 252-8 (50 Overs) : (M.Shahzad 124, M.Nabi 64; R.Jadeja 3-46, K.Yadav 2-38)India 252 (49.5 Overs) : (KL Rahul 60, A.Rayudu 57; M.Nabi 2-40, R.Khan 2-41)Man Of The Match: M.ShahzadRead Also:Asia Cup 2018- India vs. Afghanistan Preview: India aim to attain victory over testing AfghansFive international cricket captains in the crosshairs as spot fixing scandal comes to light!

Henry De Bromhead bids for further Galway Plate success

first_imgHenry De Bromhead chases his third Galway Plate in four years next week and has put together a formidable team of seven horses for the summer’s chasing highlight, now an evening card at Ballybrit on Wednesday, August 1. Further down the handicap, Calino D’airy, twice a winner at Galway in October of last year, has 10st 11lbs while Conrad Hastings has 10st 7lbs.Gordon Elliott has put one more than De Bromhead into the race with his 2016 winner Lord Scoundrel on 10st 10lbs among his eight, double his entry of last year. With 11st 1lb, Jury Duty has the most weight of the Elliott brigade. With a 10lbs rise in the ratings for his success in the Midlands National Handicap Chase at Kilbeggan last Friday night, Timiyan is on 9st 12lbs.Willie Mullins has 13 horses in the race with Alelchi Inios and Ballycasey, second and third to Lord Scoundrel two years ago, on 11st 1lb and 10st 13lbs respectively. Patricks Park, a winner at the inaugural Dublin Racing Festival and at the Punchestown festival, has 10st 7lbs, 2lbs higher than stablemate Blazer.Both Jessica Harrington and Noel Meade have made five entries. Neverushacon was a winner on the final day of last year’s Galway festival for Harrington and will carry 10st 11lbs after his runaway victory at Limerick earlier this month. Road To Riches gave Meade his sole success in the race when winning in 2014 and has 10st 6lbs while the classy Snow Falcon is on 11st.Last year’s third, Slowmotion (10st 8lbs), is one of four entries for Joseph O’Brien while Supreme Vinnie (9st 13lbs) could yet represent trainer Denise O’Shea after his success in the Galway Plate Trial Handicap Chase at Limerick earlier this month.There are five entries from Britain with Nigel Twiston-Davies, David Pipe, Harry Fry, Neil Mulholand and Dr Richard Newland all bidding to emulate Paul Nicholls who sent over Oslot to win in the hands of Ruby Walsh in 2008.The total entry of 58 horses is an increase of 11 on last year and up 18 on the 2016 figure.Michael Moloney, General Manager of Galway Racecourse, said: “We are very excited about the 149th running of Galway Plate in its new evening slot and we are thrilled with the number of entries received for this great race. While we have strong teams entered from Irish trainers like Henry De Bromhead, Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott, it is great to see the entries from across the Irish Sea. It takes a lot of hard work to win a Galway Plate and no doubt it will be another great horse that will win the 2018 renewal.”CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO ENTRIES WITH WEIGHTSprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Balko Des Flos and Davy Russell winning Galway Plate.Galway Festival.Photo: Patrick McCann 02.08.2017center_img A winner with Shanahan’s Turn three years ago, and subsequent Cheltenham Festival Ryanair Chase hero Balko Des Flos last year, the County Waterford trainer’s entry is headed by early top-weights Sub Lieutenant on 11st 10lbs and Valseur Lido which has been allotted an early weight of 11st 5lbs.last_img read more
