The entire group — including host Tyra Banks — was in tears following her video.The last solo dance of the night was AJ McLean and Cheryl Burke‘s rumba. During the package, he opened up about his battle with drugs and alcohol, which began while on set of 2001’s “The Call.” He revealed he doesn’t remember the next two years. Over the next 19 years, he made many trips to rehab and overdosed twice. Now, he’s been sober 11 months.He last relapsed while in Las Vegas for a Backstreet Boys show. When he arrived home, everything changed. “My youngest daughter went to come cuddle with me and then she walked away from me and said, ‘You don’t smell like my daddy,’” he recalled. “My kid saved my life.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

Mississippi Republican representative says that his state should ‘succeed’ from the Union

first_imgWallace was replying to a Twitter thread by former Mississippi state Rep. Robert Foster. Foster, if you don’t remember, was the asshat who would not allow Mississippi Today reporter Larrison Campbell on a 15-hour ride-along unless she brought a male colleague with her. Foster was running last year, and losing, in a bid to become the next governor of Mississippi. Guess they dodged that bullet?- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Anyway, Wallace seems to have been replying to Foster’s tweet that said: “Not sure who all needs to hear this but we are not a Democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic. The majority does not rule, the law derived from a Constitution has the final say. Democrats and their Fake News Cheerleaders are about to get a hard lesson in civics.” The important takeaway here is that the Republican Party’s new position, based on the super white supremacist rationalization of what was once just a wing of their party, is that “we are not a Democracy,” and “The majority does not rule.”Remember that.center_img I wonder what the more than 25% of Mississippians who depend on Medicare and Medicaid would think about that. I also wonder where they think they might come up with the loss of around $4.8 billion in defense contracts and payroll that they receive. Well, it’s hard to know, but I’m sure these super duper patriots have thought this out.ScreenShot2020-11-11at10.17.24AM.pnglast_img read more

California is ‘pulling the emergency brake’ on its reopening plans.

first_imgCalifornia’s governor announced Monday that the state is “pulling the emergency brake” on its reopening and reinstating broad restrictions, while Iowa’s governor reversed course and announced a mask mandate.The announcements came as the United States reported its 11 millionth confirmed case on Sunday, with one million new cases over the past week alone. The country is averaging 150,000 new cases a day and will probably reach 250,000 total deaths sometime this week.- Advertisement – The increases, he said, cross age and racial or ethnic groups and appear throughout the state.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Most of California’s larger counties were moved back into the most restrictive reopening tier, meaning that indoor dining and some other businesses would have to shut down again. Mr. Newsom said the state was also studying curfew options.Mr. Newsom added that emergency health care facilities the state set up during the beginning of the pandemic were being prepared. One facility will open in the next week or so in Imperial County, a border county that was hit hard over the summer, he said.State leaders including Mr. Newsom have told residents not to gather with people from outside their households, and to resist visiting relatives over the holidays.- Advertisement – The gathering on Nov. 6 did not technically violate the state’s rules, because there is no formal limit on the number of households at each outdoor restaurant table, but as critics noted, the governor’s attendance undermined the spirit of restrictions.Mr. Newsom apologized on Monday, saying that he should have turned around and left when he realized there were more guests at the party than he expected. Much of the recent rise in cases, state officials say, appears to have grown from at-home parties or family gatherings.But in what is likely to be remembered as one of the governor’s more damaging moments in the pandemic, The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Mr. Newsom attended an outdoor dinner for one of his political advisers at the French Laundry, a Napa Valley restaurant, with guests from several households. Daily case reports are rising in 48 states, and with little action from the Trump administration, governors and mayors across the country are taking new steps to try to halt the spread. On Monday, a sweeping stay-at-home advisory went into effect in Chicago, and Philadelphia announced strict new rules starting Friday, banning indoor gatherings and closing indoor dining at restaurants.In California, which had been credited with getting the virus under control for a time, Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, said the state’s daily case numbers had doubled in the last 10 days, the fastest increase the state had seen since the beginning of the pandemic. The state reached one million known cases on Nov. 12, and the next day issued travel advisories.last_img read more

Three new avian flu cases reported in Indonesia, 2 in Iran

first_imgMay 22, 2006 (CIDRAP news) – Local tests indicate that two more Indonesians have died of H5N1 avian influenza—one of them from the extended family case cluster still being investigated in northern Sumatra, according to news reports.In addition, according to an Associated Press (AP) story today, a third Indonesian, in East Java, has tested positive but remains alive. And Reuters reported today that two Iranians have died of H5N1 infection, which, if confirmed, would be Iran’s first human cases.The victim in Sumatra, a 32-year-old, is the father of one of the earlier victims, a 10-year-old boy. “He is the father of the child who died on May 13,” said Nyoman Kandun in an Associated Press AP story today. Kandun is the director-general of disease control for Indonesia’s Ministry of Health.Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that six people in the man’s extended family had been infected with H5N1 and that five of them had died. Another person, a 37-year-old woman who was the first in the family to die, was not tested but had symptoms of avian flu and is considered the index case, according to the WHO.Kandun, according to the AP, said the 32-year-old who died had received oseltamivir in the hospital, but then ran away. He was later found in his village but refused antiviral treatment.News agencies report that the other confirmed case of avian-flu-related death occurred May 19 in the capital city of Jakarta. No further information on this fatality was available as of this writing.The third case involved an 18-year-old shuttlecock maker in East Java, according to a May 21 Reuters story. He is currently hospitalized and undergoing treatment for avian flu, according to Reuters. Investigators are tracing the source of the feathers he used for making shuttlecocks, Kandun told Reuters.If all these cases are confirmed by the WHO, Indonesia’s avian flu case total would rise to 44, and its death toll would reach 34. Indonesia has reported by far the most H5N1 human cases and deaths in 2006.Investigation of the Sumatra cluster by scientists from the WHO and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues. A source of this outbreak has not been found; local chickens, ducks, and pigs have all tested negative for H5N1.Human-to-human transmission is a concern in any cluster, but especially one this size. “We cannot confirm that [human-to-human transmission] has occurred,” the AP quoted Kandun as saying in today’s story, “but we cannot rule it out.”Reported cases in IranIn Iran, tests on the bodies of a 26-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man confirmed H5N1 infection, according to a hospital official in the northwestern province of Kermanshah, as reported today by Agence France-Presse (AFP).”Four people have been hospitalized, among them a woman and her husband who have died,” the head of the university hospital in Kermanshah told Iranian Students News Agency, according to the AFP story. “Another one of those hospitalized is in critical condition,” he added. “There are suspicions of bird flu symptoms.””Their tests have been sent to medical centers inside the country and abroad to clarify the issue,” said the official, identified only as Dr Izadi, according to AFP.Though the patients are identified as husband and wife in the AFP story, a Reuters report published today lists them as brother and sister.If the tests are confirmed, these would constitute the first human cases of avian flu in Iran. The first report of H5N1 avian flu in Iran came in February, when officials said 153 wild swans had died of the disease.See also:May 18 CIDRAP news storylast_img read more

Anthrax in Canada kills 149 animals, infects man

first_img Jul 6 Saskatchewan news release about conditions that increase anthrax riskhttp://www.gov.sk.ca/news?newsId=507b8328-44bd-4239-8a65-00dd4f1544ed The release gave no information on how the man contracted the disease, but said cutaneous anthrax typically occurs when a person with a cut or abrasion comes into direct contact with anthrax spores on a sick or dead animal. In contrast, inhalational anthrax results from breathing in anthrax spores; it is usually fatal unless the patient receives prompt antibiotic treatment. “We are vaccinating cattle on farms around the infected premises to create a buffer zone in an effort to break the cycle of infection,” the CFIA said today. “Our monitoring of the situation indicates that the number of cases is declining.” The agency said quarantines will be canceled 21 days after new cases abate. The outbreak centers on the Melfort area, which rarely has any cases, according to CFIA veterinarian Dr. Sandra Stephens, who was quoted in a recent report in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix. The CFIA said 8,000 livestock have been vaccinated against anthrax in the area. Anthrax spores are found in soil in many parts of the world and can remain viable for decades. The disease has killed 149 animals on the quarantined farms in northeastern Saskatchewan, according to today’s update from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). The disease emerged after heavy spring rains saturated the ground and brought anthrax spores to the surface, according to a Jul 12 report in the Toronto Globe and Mail. Animals contract anthrax by eating plants contaminated by the spores. The Star Phoenix story called the outbreak the largest in Saskatchewan history. The outbreak has killed 123 cattle, 3 horses, 1 pig, 1 sheep, 13 bison, and 8 white-tailed deer, according to information from Stephens that was published on ProMED-mail, the online reporting service of the International Society for Infectious Diseases. Jul 14 Saskatchewan news release about cutaneous anthrax casehttp://www.gov.sk.ca/news?newsId=1193e9c8-f864-4500-9111-e9d073c4cb55 CIDRAP overview of anthraxhttp://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/bt/anthrax/biofacts/index.html The CFIA said the outbreak does not pose “a significant human health threat.” Cases in livestock rarely affect people, and no animals from the quarantined farms were sent to slaughter, the agency said. Anthrax does not spread from person to person. See also: The Star Phoenix said some private veterinarians in the area ran out of vaccine. Stephens said some vets didn’t have the vaccine in stock because they weren’t used to seeing cases. A man from the Melfort area, about 175 kilometers northeast of Saskatoon, contracted cutaneous anthrax, the least serious form of the disease, the Saskatchewan provincial government said in a Jul 14 news release. “The individual is being treated with antibiotics and is expected to make a full recovery,” the statement said. In the United States, some livestock cases of anthrax have been reported in Minnesota and North Dakota so far this year, but no large outbreaks. Last summer about 400 animals had died of the disease by early August in the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Texas. Authorities recommend that animals killed by anthrax be burned or buried quickly to prevent other animals from being exposed to the carcasses. Ken Tegstrom, a Melfort area cattle farmer who was quoted in the Jul 12 Globe and Mail story, said so many cattle died the week of Jul 2 that farmers didn’t have time to burn or bury them. Instead, the CFIA doused them in formaldehyde and covered them with tarpaulins for later disposal. Jul 17, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A man is being treated for cutaneous (skin) anthrax and 36 farms are under quarantine because of livestock deaths in what has been called the largest anthrax outbreak in the history of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.last_img read more
