More countries facing H5N1 flu in birds

first_imgFeb 13, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The H5N1 avian flu virus is continuing its relentless spread from bird to bird, with individual deaths in some countries marking new territory for the virus and massive die-offs and culling showing how quickly it can become entrenched.The pathogen has been reported in wild birds in five new countries—Azerbaijan, Nigeria, Greece, Italy, and Bulgaria—in the past week. In addition, an H5 virus has been reported in Slovenia.The H5N1 death toll among Nigerian poultry exceeds 150,000 birds on 30 farms in at least two states, Agence-France Presse (AFP) reported today. The information came from by Aminu Adamu, chairman of the Kano State Poultry Farmers’ Association, which hosted a news conference to seek better compensation for the birds. At least two other states are suspected of harboring poultry infections as well.The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) have urged Nigeria to close its poultry markets and stop transporting chickens, but little has happened, AFP reported.FAO employees are traveling to Nigeria to help the government draft control measures, according to the UN’s Integrated Regional Information Network (IRIN) news service. Meanwhile, the World Bank will make US $50 million in grants to Nigeria to fund the efforts.Wild swans have tested positive for H5N1 in Italy and Greece in the past few days. Twenty-two wild swans with the virus were found dead in three southern regions of Italy, according to a story posted by the United Kingdom’s news.telegraph web site. Reports late last week said three swans in Greece’s Thessaloniki and Pieria areas had tested positive.In addition, a wild swan found dead in Bulgaria has tested positive for H5N1, according to Bloomberg. Reports last week had said the swan had an H5 virus that was not dangerous to humans, but Bloomberg reported that a WHO laboratory near London has confirmed the virus was H5N1. Bulgaria produces 9% of the goose liver (foie gras) consumed in the European Union, the story noted.In Greece, officials said poultry sales have dropped 95% since Feb 11 on the news that the infection had hit that country, Reuters reported today. An Italian farmers’ group reported a drop of more than 50%. Overall, the European Union poultry market is worth about 20 billion Euros annually, or U.S. $23.8 billion.Slovenia has found an H5 virus in a swan near Maribor, but news reports differed on whether the country or the WHO has confirmed the virus as H5N1. Reuters reported that a European Commission spokesman said “it is likely H5N1, but we don’t have confirmation from Weybridge [the lab near London] yet.” The swan was found within 10 kilometers of Austria, the story noted. Slovenia had set up a 3-km protection zone and a 10-km surveillance zone around where the swan was found.As government workers fanned out in rural areas of Hong Kong, bird owners protested the loss of their now illegal backyard poultry flocks, Reuters reported today.”Whoever says we cannot rear chickens should be damned,” Lau Sau-foong told Reuters, adding that she had fainted twice from despair over the loss of her poultry. “I have treated those geese and chickens like my own children. After I wake up each morning I will feed them. Tell me, aren’t they [government poultry cullers] torturing me mentally?”Possible good news was announced on Feb 10, as a senior scientist with the WHO said a limited number of migratory birds seem to be spreading just one strain of the H5N1 virus, Reuters reported.Michael Perdue, an epidemiologist with the WHO’s global influenza program, said that, theoretically, this may reduce the chance for the virus to mutate into something that will spread easily among people.”It could reduce the mutation level,” he said. “You are less likely to have widespread mutation than if you had 20 strains hop-scotching across Asia. It also appears that the virus is relatively stable.”Reuters also quoted Perdue as saying, “It is very difficult to predict without knowing anything about the ecology of these migrating birds where the virus is going to show up next.”See also OIE report from Bulgariahttp://web.oie.int/wahis/reports/en_imm_0000004599_20060212_164850.pdfOIE report from Italyhttp://web.oie.int/wahis/reports/en_imm_0000004535_20060214_174518.pdfOIE report from Sloveniahttp://web.oie.int/wahis/reports/en_imm_0000004736_20060212_150358.pdfOIE report from Nigeriahttp://web.oie.int/wahis/reports/en_imm_0000004494_20060208_180945.pdflast_img read more

A Month Needed to Prep for Kea Trader’s New Refloating Attempt

first_imgFollowing the unsuccessful refloating attempt on October 9, salvage company Ardent is devising a new plan to move the stranded boxship from the reef off New Caledonia where it ran aground back in July.According to New Caledonia’s government, Ardent plans to propose a new method of refloating the ship which aims to limit further damage to the ill-fated vessel.Specifically, the plan is to use the rise of the tide to enable the ship to regain buoyancy and break free from the Durand Reef. The goal is to tow it out of the reef.Additional preparations are being made for the new refloating attempt, including unloading of containers from the ship that remain still onboard.As informed, substantial amount of work needs to be carried out before the next attempt to pull the ship free from the reef can be made. Initial estimates indicate that this will take at least four weeks should weather conditions be favorable.Kea Trader ran hard aground on the Durand Reef on July 12. Damage assessments conducted by late September showed that the 2,194 TEU ship is beyond repair and would have to be recycled, the ship’s owner Lomar Shipping earlier said.Underwater inspections identified extensive damage to the ship’s hull, rudder and propeller. Furthermore, there was also evidence of further structural damage within the vessel and additional deterioration being caused while the ship remains on the rock reef during rough swells.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

K Line to Start Research on Shipping Market Using AI

first_imgJapan’s shipping major K Line has agreed with Hiroshima University, the National Institute of Maritime, Port and Aviation Technology and Marubeni Corporation to jointly work on research and analysis of maritime logistics and shipping market conditions using artificial intelligence (AI).The company added that the purpose of this research is to estimate maritime logistics by combining data and technology, and to explore the possibility of developing predictive models with high accuracy.“The shipping market is one of the more difficult economic indicators to predict because it fluctuates greatly under the influence of various market and social conditions, and sometimes market sentiment as well. The method developed by the research is expected to enable more accurate and transparent business decisions,” K Line said.In recent years, it has become possible to use comprehensive, chronologically ordered ship movement and static data, such as position, speed, direction, port of call and drafts, for ships with over 300 gross tonnage traveling internationally. This data is being applied in a variety of ways.Additionally, AI is “making remarkable progress” with improving machine learning and deep learning technology, and there is much research and practical application of this technology that is being used to find patterns hidden in big data and to make predictions, K Line explained.“We are working to further improve the quality of existing service based on safety in navigation and cargo operations to high-value-added services which can contribute to strengthening relationships with our customers that we have cultivated for many years,” the company noted.last_img read more

Saints trio impress in Magpies rout

first_img Press Association Mauricio Pochettino’s side created 14 chances in the first half alone, although it took until stoppage time in the first period for Jay Rodriguez to eventually find a way past the inspired Rob Elliot, making his first league start of the season. Rickie Lambert unselfishly provided the assist for the opener and had one of his own four minutes into the second half, before Adam Lallana rifled home an outstanding 25-yard strike to put Saints out of sight. The Saints captain appeared to be growing frustrated with Marriner’s apparent attempt to avoid dishing out cards, with the referee only brandishing a yellow to Massadio Haidara with 14 minutes remaining. The referee’s display will no doubt be closely examined after a match which Saints managed to add extra gloss through Rodriguez’s fifth goal in four matches. Victory looked likely from the outset and the home fans thought they had a goal to celebrate after eight minutes, only for it to become clear Rodriguez’s strike had hit the side-netting. The England forward powered a header just wide soon after, before Elliot prevented him directing home a Lambert cross with a fine save. The Newcastle goalkeeper was getting no respite from his defence and produced a fine reaction save when Lambert went through one-on-one in the 16th minute and denied the England striker again soon after. Lallana wasted a glorious chance by directing a looped Calum Chambers’ header wide from close range as Saints continued to threaten. Newcastle began to settle but, aside from a hopeful Yoan Gouffran prod goalwards, were creating little and looking shaky at the back. Elliot had to pull off another incredible save to deny a close-range Rodriguez header before he finally found a way past the inspired Magpies keeper. Lambert beat the offside trap to latch onto a Steven Davis ball over the top, bearing down on goal and squaring to the unmarked Rodriguez, whose effort may have been scuffed but finally beat Elliot. Pardew will have no doubt given his players a dressing down at half-time and took off the ineffective Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Hatem Ben Arfa. The introduction of Davide Santon and Luuk de Jong did little to stem the tide, though, with Haidara forced to head clear of danger shortly after the restart. It was not long until Southampton doubled their advantage, with Lallana cutting back and clipping over a fine ball to Lambert, who again beat the offside trap and stabbed past Elliot at his near post. Moussa Sissoko flashed a strike across the face of goal as he tried to give the 2,187 away fans something to shout about, before Papiss Cisse somehow avoided retribution for a late challenge on Chambers. Luke Shaw also hit the deck after a Sissoko challenge but it was not until the 76th minute that Marriner finally dished out a card, giving Haidara a booking for a late challenge on James Ward-Prowse. By that point, the match had been put to bed by a moment of magic from Lallana. Collecting the ball deep in the visitors’ half, he pushed on and unleashed a wonderful 25-yard strike past Elliot. Saints continued to press and the goalkeeper produced another wonderful save to tip over a Ward-Prowse follow-up strike after Rodriguez had hit the woodwork. A wonderful Shaw block denied Gouffran grabbing a late consolation at the end of a match that got worse for the visitors when Rodriguez cut back and fired through Elliot’s legs with a minute remaining. Much of the build-up surrounded two men involved in high-profile incidents, with this match the first time former Saints boss Alan Pardew has been allowed into a stadium, albeit banned from the touchline, since head-butting Hull’s David Meyler. There was also scrutiny on referee Andre Marriner as he returned to action just a week after his embarrassing gaffe in Chelsea’s win against Arsenal, although the main talking point after a fine 4-0 win for Saints was the display of their World Cup hopefuls. In a match of many sub-plots it was another fine performance from Southampton’s England contingent that will make the headlines after they comprehensively beat Newcastle. last_img read more

Durand Cup: Gokulam Kerala FC Stun East Bengal to Seal Final Berth

first_imgKolkata: Gokulam Kerala FC stunned East Bengal to book their place in the final of the 129th Durand Cup as they won 3-2 on penalties after the first semi-final was tied 1-1 at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here on Wednesday.Samad Ali Mallick had given East Bengal the lead in the 18th minute with a superb 40-yard strike.The red and golds looked good to hold on to the slender lead before Mehtab Singh brought down Mohamed Irshad inside the box in the second half stoppage time to award Gokulam a penalty which was converted by Marcus Joseph to take the game to extra time.Mehtab was given marching orders for his act and East Bengal were down to ten men. As both the outfits could still not be separated, it took a tie-breaker to decide who plays the final on Saturday.For East Bengal, skipper Lalrindika Ralte hit the post with his first attempt while Jaime Colado and Naorem Tondomba Singh also saw their attempts saved by former East Bengal custodian Ubaid CK in the Gokulam goal.For Gokulam, Bruno Pelissari, Justin George and Lalromawia were on target from the spot.The match was off to a feisty start but East Bengal slowly started to dominate the midfield with Pintu Mahata and Mallick combining well.The home team were rewarded for their repeated forays in the 18th minute when Mallick’s long-ranger took a slight deflection off Mohammad Rashid and nestled into the back of the net.East Bengal led 1-0 at halftime and looked good to hold on to the advantage as Gokulam showed little intent with Joseph lacking support.(IANS)Also Read: Durand Cup: Real Kashmir FC Book Semis Date with Mohun BaganAlso Watch: Superstitious belief surrounds Lakhimpur villagers | The Sentinel News | Assam Newslast_img read more
