Vigilance needed to stop community spread of coronavirus, Alaska chief medical officer says

first_imgCoronavirus | Health | Science & TechVigilance needed to stop community spread of coronavirus, Alaska chief medical officer saysApril 28, 2020 by Andrew Kitchenman, KTOO and Alaska Public Media Share:Dr. Anne Zink, Alaska’s chief medical officer, speaks at a news conference on March 23. On Monday, Zink said Alaskans shouldn’t let their guard down, as the coronavirus continues to spread in the community. (Creative Commons photo by Office of Gov. Mike Dunleavy)Alaskans continue to see what’s called “community spread” of COVID-19 — when people contract the disease without knowing who they got it from.For state Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink, that’s a reason for Alaskans to remain vigilant.“It’s no time to let our guard down,” she said during a Monday news conference. “If you can’t think about the last people you’ve seen in the week — if you can’t name everyone you’d spent more than 10 minutes with in the last week, then you’re probably spending too much time with too many people.”The state is tracking the three ways Alaskans can contract the virus: through travel, from family members and other close contacts (known as “secondary” acquisition), and by community spread.Zink said that the state must go 28 days without a community case to say it doesn’t have community spread. That’s far from happening — community cases were found in Anchorage on April 21 and in the Kenai Peninsula Borough on April 17. And more community cases could be found from positive tests that are still being investigated.When someone tests positive for COVID-19, the state wants to find out who has spent more than 10 minutes within 6 feet of that person. And those contacts will be asked to quarantine themselves for 14 days.“And so the more you’re kind of connecting to other people, the higher the chance is that you may (be) asked to be quarantined,” Zink said.These investigations — known as contact tracing — are done by teams overseen by state epidemiologists and include public health nurses and local community workers.Zink said based on some estimates, Alaska’s population could have anywhere from 50 to 700 contact tracers.There are currently more than 100 people doing that work for the state and for individual communities. While they have the capacity to investigate more cases than they are currently, the state is working towards having 150 contact tracers.“It’s just like the epidemic,” she said. “We continue to watch it closely and try to stay ahead of that curve.”Zink said the state may hire more contact tracers if needed. Scientists are struggling to understand COVID-19. As Alaska ramps up testing, what will they find out?Share this story:last_img read more

News / ‘A great win’ for London Gateway as CMA CGM adds services, while logistics park expands

first_img CMA CGM is set to significantly increase the volumes of reefer containers it puts through London Gateway port after including it as its new UK call on the European Caribbean Services (ECS) it operates  with Hapag-Lloyd.It is the first time a UK call has been included on the service, which connects Europe to the entire Caribbean through CMA CGM’s transhipment hub in the Jamaican capital of Kingston, and it is a service that is almost exclusively dedicated to reefer cargoes.The new ECS port rotation will be Puerto Limon-Kingston-Rotterdam-DP World London Gateway-Hamburg-Antwerp-Le Havre-Caucedo-Kingston-Santo Tomas de Castilla-Puerto Cortes-Puerto Limon.The service deploys three CMA CGM vessels of 2,300 teu capacity, and one Hapag-Lloyd vessel, and is the third CMA CGM service to calla at the port.Rob Waterman, CEO of CMA CGM UK, said: “We’re extremely pleased to be able to offer our customers an enhanced service offering between Central America and North Europe. These improvements will lead to shorter transit times and provide greater choice to shippers moving goods between Central America & the Caribbean to the UK.”London Gateway also hosts the French carrier’s Nemo service, connecting Oceania, the Mediterranean and northern Europe, and its Eurosal service between the South America west coast and Europe, which is soon to see its vessels upgraded to 10,000 teu capacity, following last year’s completion of the Panama Canal expansion projectJames Leeson, head of port commercial at DP World London Gateway, said: “This is a great win, not just for DP World London Gateway, but for the UK, too.“The start of the improved ECS weekly service will broaden the port’s trade route offering and also provide shippers with a highly competitive transit option between the UK and important Central America markets.“Vessels calling here receive a superior temperature controlled container service. The port has almost 1,700 reefer plugs, a cassette and translifter system that enables containers to be moved around the terminal more efficiently and world-class inspection facilities that contribute to class leading release and dwell times.“We look forward to receiving the first call by a vessel on the ECS service in the same week that the enhanced Eurosal service begins calling at DP World London Gateway Port,” he said.The new service comes shortly after DP World announced that it had begun construction of the second phase of its London Logsitics Centre, the warehouse on the logistics park located behind the container terminal that was previously referred to as the common user facility.Piling begins for phase two of the DP World-London Gateway logistics centreIt was operated by Import Services until earlier this year. London Gateway executives told The Loadstar that customer feedback had indicated that potential tenants of its warehouse facilities preferred to be closer to the end provider.The new investment has been triggered by the decision this month by discount supermarket Lidl to occupy the whole 207,000sq ft warehouse in February.In all, another 155,000sq  ft of warehousing is set to be put on the market in May, and will take total warehouse capacity of the park to 362,000sq ft.Logistics park development director Oliver Treneman said: “This is a unique opportunity for a company to locate part of its operations at one of the UK’s most integrated logistics hubs. DP World London Gateway Port is witnessing exponential growth, with a number of new deepsea shipping services to new markets, so now is a great time to capitalise on available space at the logistics park and engage with us to create more value in the supply chain.”The Loadstar understands the port is looking for a single tenant to take the new facility.

FDA explains why it approved Addyi female sex pill

first_img Addyi was approved by the FDA last summer. Allen G. Breed/AP About the Author Reprints PharmalotFDA explains why it approved Addyi female sex pill New pill for boosting female libidos off to a slow start Related: Instead, they mentioned how the drug was previously bounced by an FDA advisory committee – and the agency itself – in the past for poor showings in clinical trials. And they reviewed results of more recent clinical trial work, which continued to raise questions about effectiveness and side effects that could occur if Addyi is taken with some other drugs or mixed with alcohol.The essay acknowledged there was debate about the extent to which medicines should be used to treat female sexual dysfunction. And the staffers made a point of stressing that the FDA ordered follow-up studies to resolve safety concerns and implemented a so-called risk program that requires physicians to undergo a brief certification before they are allowed to write prescriptions.But about the only time the FDA staffers displayed anything other than clinical detachment was when they referred to “erroneous claims” the agency had approved more than 20 pills to help men with sexual problems. That campaign, by the way, was partly funded by Sprout Pharmaceuticals, which held the rights to the drug. (Sprout is now owned by Valeant Pharmaceuticals.)In short, the essay is a helpful cheat sheet for anyone who missed the to-do. @Pharmalot Ed Silverman Should the Food and Drug Administration have approved the Addyi pill for female sexual dysfunction?The question has been asked repeatedly ever since the agency endorsed the drug last summer, following an orchestrated campaign that charged FDA officials were biased against such drugs for women while men had many options to combat impotence. The regulator was then criticized for approving the drug, despite safety concerns and data showing the pill was not very effective.Now, the FDA has responded to its numerous critics, some of whom argued the agency lowered the bar by granting approval. But FDA officials did so in a rather understated fashion. Anyone who hoped the agency might have acknowledged missteps will be disappointed.advertisement Pill for women’s libido carries sobering risk The FDA has previously used NEJM as a forum to explain its views. Last year, for example, several agency staffers defended their decision to approve a drug known as Brisdelle to reduce hot flashes during menopause, even though an advisory panel recommended against such a move. And two months ago, FDA officials disclosed a request for drug makers to run new studies in testosterone-lowering drugs to resolve ongoing safety concerns.As for Addyi, the agency staffers wrote how “robust” discussions are always held when drugs are reviewed for approval and that a variety of views — from inside and outside the FDA — were considered. The essay concludes with the notion that the FDA can take regulatory action if the additional study data suggests a need to rethink whether the drug is truly suitable. “This seems like a reasonable approach that balances safety and access,” they wrote.Meanwhile, demand for the pill remains anemic. Through Nov. 27, a total of 689 prescriptions were written, up from 80 through the end of October, according to IMS Health, the market research firm. The poor showing is likely due to publicity over side effect concerns and a lack of consumer advertising, which Sprout volunteered not to run for 18 months. [email protected] Related: In a four-page essay published in The New England Journal of Medicine, a group of agency staffers recounted the unusual events surrounding the Addyi regulatory review and the ensuing controversies. And they did a nice — albeit, somewhat perfunctory — job of summarizing the many twists and turns.The piece, however, did not offer a mea culpa or indicate that FDA officials have second thoughts about how the Addyi review was handled.advertisement By Ed Silverman Dec. 9, 2015 Reprints Pharmalot Columnist, Senior Writer Ed covers the pharmaceutical industry.

FSB report sets out framework to monitor crypto-asset markets

first_imgAlthough crypto-assets “do not pose a material risk to global financial stability at this time,” the FSB says in a news release, these markets are developing quickly and require vigilance to ensure that policymakers are aware of any nascent risks.“Monitoring the size and growth of crypto-asset markets is critical to understanding the potential size of wealth effects, should valuations fall. The use of leverage, and financial institution exposures to crypto-asset markets are important metrics of transmission of crypto-asset risks to the broader financial system,” the FSB says.The framework also covers trading volumes, pricing, clearing and margining for crypto derivatives.Additionally, the report details the work being done on crypto-currency markets by other international standard-setting bodies, such as the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI), the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.For example, IOSCO has established a network for global regulators to discuss their experiences with initial coin offerings (ICOs) and is developing its own framework to help regulators deal with domestic and cross-border issues stemming from ICOs that could impact investor protection.The Basel Committee is assessing the materiality of banks’ exposures to crypto-assets, and clarifying the capital treatment of these exposures; and, the CPMI, which helped the FSB develop its monitoring framework, is examining distributed ledger technology.The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) will also be reporting to the G20 on the money laundering and terrorist financing risks relating to crypto assets, the FSB says. Bitcoin should face tough capital rules, Basel Committee says James Langton A report from the Financial Stability (FSB) report published on Monday details the development of new tools for monitoring the implications for financial stability stemming from crypto assets.The report, which is to be delivered to the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors at their meeting in Buenos Aires on July 21-22, sets out the metrics that the FSB will use to monitor possible systemic risks in crypto-asset markets.

Toyota planning 10 purely electric vehicles by 2020s

first_img TOKYO — Toyota plans to offer more than 10 purely electric vehicle models in its lineup by the early 2020s, marking the Japanese automaker’s commitment to that growing technology sector.Toyota Motor Corp. now offers no purely electric vehicles, although it leads in hybrid models, which switch between an electric motor and a gas engine.Executive Vice-President Shigeki Terashi said that Toyota’s EVs will be first offered in China, a nation that’s encouraging electric vehicles with subsidies and other policies, and is expected to drive massive growth in that technology.

That means competition among battery makers is heating up.  Trending in Canada Terashi says Toyota’s EVs will also later be offered in Japan, India, North America and Europe. The company says that by about 2025, every model it sells will have some kind of “electrified” version, such as hybrid, electric or fuel cell. Toyota had recently announced it will set up a joint auto battery business with Japanese electronics maker Panasonic. Terashi stressed the deal with Panasonic is “a crucial piece” in Toyota’s strategy, and that it wanted to promote a Japanese partnership.Advances in battery technology are vital for the success of EVs. A major shift toward their use would require more use and recycling of the rare and expensive materials used in batteries, such as lithium.Toyota announced other goals on green vehicles. By about 2030, it hopes to sell 5.5 million electrified vehicles a year. Toyota sells about 10 million vehicles globally a year.The company said it will invest 1.5 trillion yen (US$13 billion) to realize its 2030 goal, more than half of it on making batteries.

Currently, Cruise vehicles are stopping and hesitating when driving by parked motorcycles or rows of bikes, and it’s failed to recognize pedestrians and seen ghost bicycles, which has also caused it to stop.SoftBank donated US$2.25 billion to the Cruise project earlier this year, and more recently Honda invested US$2.8 billion; so far it’s failed to meet many of its milestone goals, including having the fewest number of human interventions compared to its competitors; and of logging a million miles a month by early 2018.Despite the challenges, however,  “based on where we’re at and where we’ve been, we’re on track to hit that” 2019 goal, says Cruise CEO Chris Vogt.

Center for Environmental Journalism turns 25

first_imgTags:center for environmental journalismjournalism Contact:Tom Yulsman, Center for Environmental Journalism DirectorStephanie Cook, CMCI, 303-408-4439 Published: Aug. 17, 2017 The University of Colorado Boulder’s Center for Environmental Journalism celebrates its 25th anniversary this month, as well as the 20th anniversary of the Ted Scripps Environmental Journalism Fellowship. The center, established in 1992, has hosted the Ted Scripps Fellowships since the 1997-98 academic year.For more than two decades, the program—housed within the College of Media, Communication and Information—has brought journalists, scientists, faculty and students together to discuss and report on issues crucial to our environment. Events, which are free and open to the public, will celebrate the anniversary on Saturday, Aug. 26, beginning with two panels featuring journalists and environmental experts. “Science and policy in uncertain times,” will begin at 10 a.m., followed by the panel, “After years of upheaval, is journalism finding its voice?” at 1 p.m. Both panels will take place in the ATLAS center on CU Boulder’s central campus.The inaugural Ackland Lecture in Journalism—named in honor of CEJ founding Director Len Ackland—will begin at 7 p.m. featuring Juliet Eilperin, the Washington Post’s senior national affairs correspondent. Eilperin will deliver her lecture in the auditorium at the new Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex.The center also will celebrate the 100 journalists who have been awarded the Ted Scripps Environmental Journalism Fellowship, a rare opportunity for mid-career journalists to spend nine months studying and working on special projects with support from the center. The fellowship is funded by the Scripps Howard Foundation.“Their work during and after the fellowship has yielded numerous impactful stories, more than a dozen books, a Pulitzer prize—and even an entire investigative news network whose work has led to changes in multiple Colorado laws,” said CEJ Director Tom Yulsman. The new class of 2017-18 fellows joining the first 100 includes: Sadie Babits, who recently served as the news director at Colorado Public Radio; Jeff Burnside, most recently the senior investigative reporter for KOMO TV Seattle; Lindsay Fendt, a freelance reporter who joins the program after spending five years based in San José, Costa Rica, where she covered stories throughout Latin America; Jason Plautz, a Washington, D.C.-based journalist who has covered energy and environment policy for National Journal and E&E Publishing; and Lynette Wilson, who spent the last eight years covering human rights and social justice issues for the Episcopal News Service.Learn more about the CU Boulder Center for Environmental Journalism and the Ted Scripps Fellowships in Environmental Journalism »center_img Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more
