Recall Alert: 35 people sickened by 200-million recalled eggs

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment! Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter A salmonella outbreak that led to a recall of nearly 207 million eggs has now sickened nearly three dozen people in states along the East Coast.Thirty-five people — up by 12 over the past few weeks — have been sickened by Salmonella braenderup, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this week. The outbreak, which has been traced to a single egg producer, has resulted in 11 hospitalizations. No deaths have been reported.In April, Rose Acre Farms recalled its products after federal officials tied the illnesses to the company’s facility in North Carolina, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said. The recalled eggs were sold under brand names such as Great Value, Country Daybreak and Crystal Farms. They were also sold to Waffle House restaurants and Food Lion stores. (Click here for a full list of brands and stores.)An investigation by federal officials led to an inspection of the farm’s facility in Hyde County, N.C., which produces 2.3 million eggs a day from 3 million hens. Eggs produced at the farm are distributed to retail stores and restaurants in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the Carolinas. Illnesses have been reported in all of the states, the majority of which were from New York and Virginia, the CDC said.Rose Acre Farms is a family-owned company headquartered in Seymour, Ind., and has 17 facilities in eight states. In a statement, the company said it is “disheartened by the additional illnesses.”“We apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of our eggs … Meanwhile, we have already implemented numerous remedial actions and have not only corrected deficiencies at the farm, but we’ve also taken other steps to ensure the farm meets or exceeds the standards by the FDA and USDA.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

Photo: Cian ReinhardtA Limerick politician who lost her husband to cancer 15 months ago, has called on the government to consider introducing a module in primary and secondary schools on learning to cope with bereavement.Fine Gael city councillor Sarah Kiely, who opened up about the devastating loss of her husband Damien O’Shaughnessy, said society needs to have a wider conversation about death, especially when a diagnosis of a terminal illness is involved and that children should be included in such a conversation.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Death should be part of the curriculum. The department of education should look at it. They are looking at sex education, so why not include education surrounding bereavement, loss, and death. It should be part of some module,” said Ms Kiely whose son Tiernan (14) and daughter Emily (19) were both involved in organising their father’s funeral.The late Damien O’Shaughnessy“Perhaps a government task-force could look at it. Children are exposed to death; we all are, so we should have more conversations about it.”Mr O’Shaughnessy, (45), a well-known chef and community activist, passed away at Milford Hospice on October 13, 2018, nine months after being diagnosed with liver cancer.He had been receiving long-term treatment at St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin but took a turn for the worse on October 8 while on weekend visit at his home in Limerick.He was taken by ambulance to the emergency department at University Hospital Limerick where he spent 24 hours on a trolley.Mr O’Shaughnessy was one of 61 patients on trolleys at the hospital that day, according to statistics published by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO).In a separate interview on local radio station Live 95, Ms Kiely fought back tears as she recalled the experience in the overcrowded emergency department.“Unfortunately, Damian had to spend 24 hours on a trolley. People are on trolleys at the moment. It’s not good, it’s not okay. We all have an experience of that, we shouldn’t have. And for me, that happened at the worst time.”Praising the “fantastic care” of the hospital staff she said: “The staff out there really helped and they made us as comfortable as they could.”Ms Kiely said families and couples should talk about their funeral wishes and that this helped her and her children following Damien’s death.“Everyone is different but I genuinely believe that if you have a conversation before you get to that point, you can understand what someone wants.”“If anyone can take something from this, please tell people what your wishes are, talk about death, do not avoid it. It’s very important that people know what you want, but more importantly what you don’t want.”“Damien had told me ‘I want only you and the two children in the room when I die’. He told me what church he wanted to go to. He told me he wanted to be cremated.He chose the music and our children had an input into the music as well.”Cllr Kiely praised her children’s school Gaelcholaiste Luimnigh for their ongoing support, as well as the Children’s Grief Centre, which provides counselling for children who have suffered the loss of a family member.

Tooth growth in male Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella) from South Georgia: an indicator of long-term growth history

first_imgGrowth of upper canine teeth of male Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella) which died of natural causes at Bird Island, South Georgia, was quantified from measurements of annual layers in longitudinal sections of teeth. Mean age at death was 7.69±0.07 years and this showed a small but significant increase through the period when samples were collected (1972/73–1988/89). There were significant correlations between morphometrics of teeth and those of seals, suggesting that tooth growth provided an indication of body growth. Tooth growth rate was lowest in seals which died early (age 4 years) and increased with age at death. Changes in the growth pattern of teeth suggested that fur seals which became sexually mature early also died early. Tooth growth layers deposited in each calendar year were compared with the expected layer depth based on a linear relationship between layer depth and age at which each layer was deposited. There was significant variation in the depth of tooth growth layers deposited in different years, suggesting that growth was greater in some years than others. No trends in cohort strengths were detected, but particularly poor years for growth were closely related to years in which reproductive performance was also observed to be low. Variations in growth from 1967/68 to 1987/88 were correlated significantly (P < 0.008) with the Southern Oscillation Index of climatic variation.last_img read more

Boundary layer characteristics and turbulent exchange mechanisms in highly complex terrain

first_imgThe Mesoscale Alpine Programme’s Riviera project investigated the turbulence structure and related exchange processes in an Alpine valley by combining a detailed experimental campaign with high-resolution numerical modelling. The present contribution reviews published material on the Riviera Valley’s boundary layer structure and discusses new material on the near-surface turbulence structure. The general conclusion of the project is that despite the large spatial variability of turbulence characteristics and the crucial influence of topography at all scales, the physical processes can accurately be understood and modelled. Nevertheless, many of the “text book characteristics” like the interaction between the valley and slope wind systems or the erosion of the nocturnal valley inversion need reconsideration, at least for small non-ideal valleys like the Riviera Valley. The project has identified new areas of research such as post-processing methods for turbulence variables in complex terrain and new approaches for the surface energy balance when advection is non-negligible. The exchange of moisture and heat between the valley atmosphere and the free troposphere is dominated by local “secondary” circulations due to the curvature of the valley axis. Because many curved valleys exist, and operational models still have rather poor resolution, parameterization of these processes may be required.last_img read more

Remembering The Who’s John Entwistle On The Anniversary Of His Death

first_imgSome called him “The Ox.” Some called him “Thunderfingers.” No list of the best bassists in rock and roll history would be complete with a mention of John Entwistle, who held down the low end of The Who from their earliest days in England until his death on June 27th, 2002. The Ox was an integral component of The Who’s sound, pioneering a new style of bass that would go on to influence just about everyone to follow.One of Entwistle’s earliest contributions to rock lore was on the song “My Generation.” It’s impossible to listen to that classic Who song without picking out Entwistle’s iconic bass groove, as his solos define the instrumental sections of the rock anthem. Entwistle’s role only expanded on The Who’s more ambitious works, like Tommy, Who’s Next and Quadrophenia.[Video: The Best Of – Home Of Classic Music]On stage, Entwistle provided the ever-important anchor for The Who’s wild performances. While singer Roger Daltrey would twirl his microphone and belt vocals, and guitarist Pete Townshend and drummer Keith Moon rocked to the point of instrumental destruction, it was Entwistle that steadied the group. Bassist Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones called him “the quietest man in private but the loudest man on stage.” He would rarely talk, though Entwistle did write a series of great songs that includes “My Wife,” “Boris The Spider” and more.[Video: Grafietstift]Entwistle often dressed in a full-on skeleton suit for live performances, only adding to his undeniable charm on stage. Still, Entwistle’s biggest claim to fame is his unparalleled abilities on the bass guitar. No one played the instrument like him. His lines often act as leads for various songs in the Who’s repertoire, and some isolated bass tracks showcase his talent. Be prepared for some serious bass work on this isolated track from Quadrophenia classic, “The Real Me.”[Video: trax]Unfortunately, Entwistle’s story came to a sad end on this day fifteen years ago. Just one day before a major Who tour in 2002, Entwistle passed away after a night of partying in his hotel room. Coroners confirmed that it was a cocaine-induced heart attack that killed the bassist, putting an end to an incredible legacy of rock music.Fifteen years later, Entwistle’s tone and technique still stand out as some of the best bass playing in all of rock and roll. We’ll leave you with a personal favorite, The Ox’s bass solo in the band’s classic song, “5:15.”JOHN ENTWISTLE — 5:15 BASS SOLO by SALTME3last_img read more
