Air vortex cannons are more fun when you add propane and fire

first_imgHow do you make a kid’s toy that’s been around since the 1960s even more fun? By scaling it up and cranking up the danger factor, obviously.Way back in 1965, Wham-O introduced the Air Blaster. It could blow out a candle from about 20 feet away. Numerous other companies have released air vortex cannons since the 60s, but they haven’t changed a heck of a lot since then.That’s because they’re so elegantly simply to construct. You can make a vortex cannon at home with just a few inexpensive parts, like a cup, some popsicle sticks, a rubber band, and a trash bag. Or you can go big and grab a trash can to build your airzooka.The fun doesn’t have to end once you’re done seeing how many cardboard things you can knock over from a distance or who can blow the most epic smoke ring using your creation. You can bring fire into the mix like the Backyard Scientist did.He recently whipped up a vortex cannon using a galvanized metal trash can, complete with its own stand for easier aiming and firing. After he put away the fog machine, he and his partner pulled out a propane tank and lit things up.To ignite their invisible floating propane donuts, they mounted a lit sparkler a few feet away from the vortex cannon. The result is pretty spectacular — you’ll see it at about the 1:50 mark in their video:Vortex cannons can put on an impressive show even when there’s no visible flames. You can, for example, pretend that you’re the Big Bad Wolf and use one to blow down a few houses:last_img read more

3 Ways to Milk the Internet for All Its Worth

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. The giant companies of the Internet offer online sustenance to the masses. They feed people with information, satisfy the hunger to connect and give companies fuel to run successful businesses in the digital age.Sure, consumers and businesspeople have to pay for the prime Internet services (advertising and other premium services) but the core services are free. By this I mean the gamut of services available that can help small businesses succeed: web search, maps, directories and reviews.  The giant Internet companies operate on such a large scale that they can literally give away their services — at least at the most basic level — to the everyday Joe. Take Amazon and eBay. Using just one of those platforms, someone could sell sports memorabilia from a corner of the kitchen and reach millions of potential customers, without spending much more than time.Without even printing up business card, an entrepreneur can carve out a niche on the web by taking advantage of the opportunities that the Internet’s biggest players offer small businesses. Here are three ways (with many options that are free or at minimal cost) to mine the offerings of large online companies to the advantage of small businesses:Related: The 7 Essential Steps to Monitoring Your Online Reputation1. Protect the company’s online identity.While many buy insurance to protect their interests in case something bad happens to their company, a lot of small-business owners aren’t in the habit of protecting their online identity. Yet it’s possible for misinformation (or worse) about a company to be circulated online. This is a real risk (like a flood or a fire) to the viability of a business.Online products like SinglePlatform, BrightEdge and Get Found (offered by my company, GoDaddy) make it easier for a company to have control over basic information posted about it on large popular sites such as Bing, Google and Yelp. Now companies can manage that information from one central location.Related: Migrate Beyond Facebook. Make a Huge Impact on Smaller Niche Sites.2. Add social-media marketing to the daily list.SearchMetrics recently came out with this year’s list of the top search-engine ranking factors — and seven of the top 10 now involve social media.Groom the social profile of a business by posting relevant content on the sites frequented by its target customers. This takes time and developing a strategy to manage these tasks well. But today a business active on social networks amounts to a more successful one.3. Determine the best channels to reach clients.  Many consumers use a combination of trusted apps to look for products or services. Do additional research to discover the online channels that will work best to reach target customers in a specific geographic market and be sure the information posted about the company is correct online.Those businesspeople who are building relationships with customers face-to-face and online — especially via meaningful engagement on social platforms — should ask customers how they found out about their company.Leveraging all these online resources takes time.Embrace technologies that offer time-saving solutions for small and medium-size businesses to get the full benefit from the web, such as mobile apps that enable payment via a linked PayPal account or GoDaddy’s Get Paid. Or try an online bank application.That’s how to milk the Internet for its affordable small-business services without squeezing the last ounce of time from a daily schedule. Related: Google Hangout: The Best Apps and Tech Tools to Supercharge Your Small Business 4 min read Register Now » October 1, 2014last_img read more

Demonstrations of Bernoullis Principle You Can Try At Home

first_imgRecently, I wrote about how it’s possible to explain the lift from an airplane wing without mentioning Bernoulli’s principle, which… well… ruffled a few feathers. Some people interpreted it as me saying the whole Bernoulli thing was bogus, which is obviously not the case; it’s just that you don’t need to invoke Bernoulli’s principle to explain the basics.So, in an effort to make Bernoulli feel better I’m going to go over Bernoulli’s principle and include some demonstrations you can do yourself.Let me start off with a super short description (and a very common one).As the speed of a fluid increases, its pressure decreases.Yes, that seems simple. But it’s also complicated. I will explain why this happens—but first I should define pressure. Here is an equation definition. However, this definition isn’t very useful in this case. Suppose I replace the “fluid” with a bunch of tiny balls. Yes—I like the tiny ball model for fluids (and this works for gases too). In this tiny-ball model, the molecules are like the tiny balls. They are moving around in all different directions with some range of speed values. Sometimes these balls can collide with a wall or surface. The collision causes a ball to change its momentum (where momentum is the product of mass and velocity). This change in momentum requires a force and this force is exerted on the ball by the surface. Since forces are an interaction between two objects, the surface pushing on the air ball means the air ball pushes back with the same force on the wall. So, in a sense the pressure due to a gas or fluid is due to the collisions of these tiny air balls (or water balls).Also in order to understand the Bernoulli principle, you need to imagine these balls moving at different speeds and in different directions. Here is a picture to help with this (it’s just a picture—it’s not real air balls).The key point is that the pressure on that bottom surface depends on both the speed and mass of the balls as well as the frequency with which they collide. More collisions means greater pressure. Now suppose this air is moving to the right with some average speed. That means that the average velocity of the balls is to the right, but they are still moving in all directions—just more to the right than to the left. Here are those same air balls as before, but with an average speed to the right (the yellow arrow shows the overall speed).But what does this have to do with pressure? The more these air balls are moving to the right, the less they are colliding with that bottom surface. With fewer collisions, the pressure decreases. Boom. That’s how Bernoulli’s principle works. It’s much easier to comprehend if you think of fluids and gases as a collection of moving balls—which is essentially true.Now for the fun part. Here are some demonstrations of the Bernoulli principle that you can try yourself. This first one is the easiest. All you need is a sheet of paper. Hold one edge of the paper just below your mouth and blow. It should look something like this.So, what’s going on here? As I blow over the paper, the air on the top is moving faster than the air on the bottom. According to Bernoulli’s principle, this faster moving air on the top has a lower pressure than the non-moving air on the bottom. With a greater pressure on the bottom of the paper there is also a greater force pushing up. The paper then starts to move up. When the paper gets too high, it gets into the air stream which pushes it back down.Here is another demo that does something very similar. It’s a balloon—you know, for kids. After you blow it up and let the air out, it might do something like this (in slow motion).It’s the same thing as the paper except that the faster air is on the inside of that little rubber tube. This faster air reduces the pressure in the tube so much that the outside pressure causes the tube to collapse. Of course a collapsed tube also stops the air, which increases the pressure to open it back up. The paper and the balloon are essentially how wind instruments—like the clarinet, saxophone, and oboe—work, while the balloon mouth is like a brass instrument (tuba, trumpet, trombone).Another fun application is the atomizer. No, it doesn’t break something into it’s atoms—that would be bad. This is just a way to spray a liquid. You can build your own with a drinking straw. Take some scissors and cut partway through the straw. Now bend the straw at that cut so that there is an opening. Next, put one end in a liquid (I suggest water) and blow through the other end (blow hard). Here’s what it looks like.OK, I agree—it’s not a very good atomizer, but you can’t get any simpler than a straw and some water.One last demo. Here I have two ping pong balls hanging vertically (I used tape instead of string because it was easier). There is a small gap between the balls. Now watch what happens if I blow air between the balls.Maybe that demo is difficult to see (my big head kept getting in the way)—but it should be mostly clear that the two balls get pushed together. Really, you could do this with any two objects. You might want to redo it with two empty soda cans. But still the idea is that faster moving air in between the cans decreases the pressure so that the outside pressure is greater and pushes them together. Cheers, Bernoulli!last_img read more

Feeling horny and sexy at Pride We need to talk about chemsex

first_imgGot a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . The gay community has to get over its unhealthy addiction to drugs Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… As renowned play The Chemsex Monologues comes to the all-new Above the Stag Theatre for the Pride in London 2018 festival, writer Patrick Cash reflects on how he first came across chemsex:I wrote The Chemsex Monologues in 2016, in order to show the real lives of people caught up in this world. GAYSTARNEWS- The writer Johann Hari expands eloquently on this concept in his TED Talk ‘Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong’, based on his excellent book Chasing the Scream. Russell Brand, a former heroin addict himself, has called for ‘compassion’ for drug users and decriminalization.If we admit that drug use is not some inherent flaw in the user, and in fact to do with human happiness and well-being, then it becomes harder to separate the drug user from the ‘non-drug user’.In fact, the twink smothering their school years with tequila at Heaven, the middle-aged queen discreetly asking their GP for Prozac, and the ‘good gay’ lawyer who turns their flat into a crystal-smoking chillout at the weekends, are all basically on the same page. Let’s escape.‘Nameless’ played here by Denholm Spurr | Photo: Dionysis Livanis‘“Why don’t we just leave now?’ I said. He looked at me. ‘There’s nowhere to go…”‘Denholm plays nameless in the new run. He says: I’ve grown with the character so much over the last few years. When I started playing him I felt almost as nameless as he is, now my name couldn’t be more clear. It’s been a bit like therapy: playing Nameless has helped me understand myself and my life as a gay man.A conversation about Chemsex is just as much about mental health tooWhat we are talking about here is mental health. More than anything, The Chemsex Monologues is a play about mental health; the clotheshorse that has long worn the cloak of drug use.There are other ‘escapes’ mentioned in the play: including porn, social media, and hook-up apps.It’s just been announced that the NHS is going to fund an internet addiction clinic run by Henrietta Bowden-Jones; her husband Owen leads on gay men and chemsex.I haven’t written this article, or indeed The Chemsex Monologues, to paint all gay men as mentally ill and unhappy.That’s evidently not the case.However, I do feel that when we are faced with a symptom of poor well-being in our community, as I believe chemsex to be, then it benefits the whole community to spread compassion.That’s why, in the midst of the G overdoses and the slamming, each monologue ends with a character caring for another.The Chemsex Monologues ‘Fag Hag Cath’ played here by Remy Moynes | Photo: Remy Moynes‘I look at Steve, streaked in fake tan, staring at me in mephed-up consternation across the room… “Wake up, Steve,” I say. “I just want you to wake up.”‘Fag Hag Cath is played by Remy Moynes in the new run, she says: ‘For me, Cath provides the heart in the piece: she has some early comedy moments, and later, some of the darkest as well, and the audience gets to go on a real journey with her. I think it’s really important that we hear from people who are affected by, but not necessarily directly involved in, the chemsex scene. It’s a viewpoint that could be easily forgotten.’The Chemsex Monologues is at Above the Stag Theatre, 72 Albert Embankment, Vauxhall, SW1 7TP from 1-4 July, part of Pride in London 2018. To book tickets, click here.You can listen to excerpts from the Monologues here:Read more from the Gay Star News Chemsex series:How I found compassion for everyone who has chemsex eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) I’d been working at London’s gay nightlife magazine QX, where I’d been seeing mephedrone, G and crystal meth – a so-called ‘holy trinity’  of drugs – as rife on the scene.Otherwise known as getting high and horny or party and play – those who take part in chemsex do so to change the sex they are having. In some cases, the mostly gay and bi men who use chems, will ‘slam’ or inject these drugs.I remember standing in one Vauxhall club, looking around the smoking garden, and thinking: ‘why is every single gay man in this club off his face on drugs?’ I began to research the subject.The first person I interviewed was David Stuart, a man whose name has become almost synonymous with chemsex; apt, given it was he who coined the term. David had just been appointed as sexual health clinic 56 Dean Street’s first Substance Use Lead.‘People use drugs to serve the purpose they need addressing,’ he said. ‘It’s tied up with fear and rejection. Too many gay guys are in bed and not feeling horny sober.’ In short, he spoke of drugs as an escape.‘Daniel the Sexual Health Worker’, played here by Matthew Hodson | Photo: Dionysis Livanis‘Sometimes it feels like there’s this huge sex party going on in the city – and nobody’s sent me an invitation.’Matthew, who plays Daniel, says: ‘People wonder how much Daniel and I are alike. In my understanding of Daniel, we are both living with HIV. Like Daniel, I’m conscious of getting older on a gay scene that prizes youth and beauty. But Daniel is full of hope, optimism and love, qualities that I cherish, so I enjoy slipping into the character and seeing the world through his eyes.’For some, chemsex is about escapingPersonally, I could fully understand the idea of utilizing a substance as a fire exit for the mind.Throughout my twenties, I struggled with controlling my alcohol use. When eventually I ended up in a traumatic incident of which I had no memory, I had to stop drinking for a year at the age of 29.During that period all kinds of issues surfaced that I’d been self-medicating with booze, to do with my sexuality: self-esteem, gay shame, loneliness and a need for connection.Whilst misuse of alcohol is mostly understood by society, the illegality of chemsex drugs limits sympathy for their users.Even now when publicising The Chemsex Monologues, Tweets pop up hysterically screaming at gay men not to take drugs, mostly written by other gay men.It’s understandable: most societies don’t encourage their citizens to question laws, even though adaptability of law is a sign of a successful society.After all, gay sex was illegal until 1967.Kane Surrey performing | Photo: Kane Surry‘This boy’s beauty might save me from my own embarrassment, the intoxicating wish to dull my own shine.’The narrator played in this run by Kane Surry, he says: ‘What I love about playing the Narrator is that he is like the Everyman of the play – someone who can ease the audience into this world that many haven’t explored.’‘We need to treat harmful drug use with empathy rather than judgment.’Our outdated drug laws prevent us from perceiving the real root of drug use. It’s to do with happiness.The academic Yuval Noah Harari writes in Homo Deus that ‘what some people hope to get by studying, working or raising a family, others try to obtain far more easily through the right dosage of molecules. This is an existential threat to the social and economic order, which is why countries wage a stubborn, bloody and hopeless war against biochemical crime.’The Chemsex Monologues coheres with this recent shift in global thinking on drugs; that we need to treat harmful drug use with empathy rather than judgment. The gay community has to get over its unhealthy addiction to drugsThis is how white pimps are pushing meth onto gay black AmericansDrugs services need to adapt to rise of chemsex in gay communityRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/chemsex-during-pride/last_img read more

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.F <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/2a62f/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Gulf Air has introduced a Voluntary Redundancy/ Retirement Scheme (VRS) for its employees.Gulf Air CEO Samer Majali said the VRS scheme was aimed at optimising the airline’s workforce and improving efficiency. “A key part of our strategy is to review all cost elements of the business that have an impact on its sustainability and profitability. This included personnel-related costs. “Offering a VRS was one of the suggestions put forward by employees and employee representatives to address this issue,” commented,”After careful consideration and a series of consultations with the Gulf Air Trade Union (GATU) and the Ministry of Labour, we have come up with a VRS that we feel offers a reasonable financial package to Bahrainis and former owner-state nationals wishing to leave Gulf Air and wanting to pursue other business or personal ventures,” he added.”While not all of the GATU’s demands could be fully met, many were taken into consideration and the VRS scheme was modified to accommodate their suggestions. “I was pleased with the final outcome as both Gulf Air management and GATU have became more aligned following negotiations and reached an understanding for a voluntary scheme.” According to Majali, participation in the VRS is entirely voluntary however, the final decision on each application rests with a management committee.Under the scheme, employees that are Bahrainis or former-owner state nationals and have worked for the company for a minimum of six months are entitled to apply for VRS. Employees whose VRS applications have been approved will receive a compensation of one month’s salary for each completed year of service, three month’s salary as an ex-gratia payment and one month’s salary in lieu of notice period. Under the VRS, employees will also receive other benefits such as medical insurance coverage and staff travel benefits. “Whilst we are conscious of the financial impact due to the high number of employees we have on our payroll, our main priority will always be, retaining the best and most productive talent, safeguarding the jobs of Gulf Air employees who continue to work hard for Gulf Air’s long term success and future,” he said.”Notwithstanding the VR scheme, we are actively moving on employing more Bahrainis. “I am proud to say that today 82% of non-flight crew positions in Bahrain are held by Bahrainis, while our overall Bahrainisation level has reached 54%.”last_img read more

Fitch GSIFIs Need to Raise 566B Ahead of Basel III

first_img in Data, Government, Origination, Servicing Fitch: G-SIFIs Need to Raise $566B Ahead of Basel III “”Fitch Ratings””:http://www.fitchratings.com/web/en/dynamic/fitch-home.jsp recently published a report estimating that 29 global systemically important financial institutions (G-SIFIs) may need to raise about $566 billion in common equity in order to satisfy new Basel III capital rules by the end of 2018.[IMAGE]The $566 billion figure reflects a 23 percent increase relative to the institutions’ aggregate common equity of $2.5 trillion. Though the new Basil III rules will not be implemented until 2018, Fitch noted that the global banks will likely face market and supervisory pressure to meet those targets before then. The pressure to raise money may restrict the ability of G-SIFIs to increase dividends or undertake share buybacks.Banks will probably use a mix of strategies to address capital shortfalls, including retention of future earnings and selling or winding down exposures subject to higher Basel risk-weights. Without additional equity issuance, the median G-SIFI should be able to meet this shortfall with three years of retained earnings.[COLUMN_BREAK]The stricter Basel III capital rules could imply an estimated reduction in large banks’ median return on equity from about 11 percent over the past few years to approximately 8 percent to 9 percent, a reduction of almost 20 percent. Basel III also creates incentives to reduce expenses and increase pricing on borrowers and customers for banks that continue to pursue returns on equity between 12 percent and 15 percent.””Since it is impossible for regulators to perfectly align capital requirements with risk exposure, some banks might seek to increase ROE through riskier activities that maximize yield on a given unit of Basel III capital, including new forms of regulatory arbitrage,”” Martin Hansen, senior director with Fitch Macro Credit Research, said in a statement.The report speculated that for riskier activities subject to higher capital charges, Basel III could increase borrowing costs, promote a shift to securitization and capital markets funding, or cause a migration to less regulated segments of the financial system, including shadow banks.The 29 G-SIFIs collectively represent total assets of $47 trillion. The Fitch study looked at financial reporting as of the end of 2011 in order to provide a current view of where the G-SIFI banks stand in relation to Basel III requirements. The report also looked at the G-SIFI entity as a whole and did not analyze the capital positions of any individual bank.

In his Budget speech for 2016-17, Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka R-Nisswa said it was no longer possible to pass all remaining bills before midnight but "agreement is possible" between Gov Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders on what to include in the remaining billsRather than becoming tense and irritable over their failure to get their work done on time most legislators seemed resigned to the fact that they will have to return for a special session to finish the jobWith little to do lawmakers spent much of the day sitting in their offices or at their desks on the House and Senate floors waiting for bills to arrive so they could debate and voteWhile sitting at his desk in a nearly empty House chamber Rep Paul Thissen DFL-Minneapolis was asked how he was doing "Bored" he repliedOthers grumbled that they weren’t being told what was going on behind closed doors Only the governor and a handful of top legislative leaders were privy to the budget deliberationsBABY TALK IN THE HOUSEDuring a prolonged debate on a public safety bill Rep John Lesch DFL-St Paul phoned home and asked his baby sitter to bring Eleanor his 11-month-old daughter to the House chamberWhen Eleanor arrived Lesch put her on his shoulders grabbed her milk bottle in his hand and paraded her around the room introducing her to his colleaguesAsked why he brought her to the Capitol Lesch replied "I wanted to see her During this part of the session I don’t get to see her that much" Judging by the smiles and baby talk she generated around the room other lawmakers also were happy to see herBONDING BILL ALIVEWhile one House floor debate dragged on Republican Rep Dean Urdahl of Grove City chair of the bonding committee huddled at the back of the chamber with Rep Alice Hausman of St Paul the lead Democrat on that panel to discuss projects to include in a public works bill—if Dayton and legislative leaders give them permission to assemble one"We’re getting closer" to agreeing on what will be in the bill Urdahl said "We’re working around the edges But it still isn’t easy"Hausman said "If (Urdahl) and I could write the bill it would have been done a long time ago But we’re not the closers"She speculated that the governor and legislative leaders are delaying action on a popular bonding bill to use it for leverage to pass other billsSPECTACULAR VIEW RETURNSOne of the most popular spots for legislators lobbyists and staffers to hang out during down times was the Capitol loggia a long-closed covered balcony on the second floor where the House and Senate meetMinnesota’s extreme temperatures had caused cracks and corrosion on the loggia’s stone floor and marble railings But after a $400000 repair as part of the nearly complete Capitol renovation the Department of Administration opened the doors to the restored balcony overlooking the building’s south entranceLegislators lobbyists Capitol staffers and tourists flocked to the site for the fresh air and sunshinePUBLIC INSISTS ON BEING SEENEven though much of what happens in the final hours of the session happens behind closed doors demonstrators nonetheless strolled the halls with signs for their causes"Yes we can still make a difference" said Michael LaCoste a volunteer with the labor organization AFSCME Council 5 as he and Jolene Cotudio circled the Capitol rotunda outside the chambers of the House and Senate They held signs reading simply "AFSCME is Watching"WAITING ON A NUMBERWhile most other House and Senate budget negotiators were holding private talks outside the chambers House Taxes Committee Chair Greg Davids R-Preston stayed at his desk on the House floor and listened to a rambling public safety debateWhy wasn’t he off cutting a tax deal "We’re just waiting for our number" Davids said referring to the total amount that Dayton and the legislative leaders agree to provide for tax reliefWhen the tax negotiators get that number they can pull their bill together quickly he said But the tax-cut measure—the cherry on the cake for most legislators—will be one of the last bills to be put to a voteDavid Orrick and David Montgomery contributed to this articleThough the attack was linked with men of Boko Haram sect earlier but the mode of operation at the Potiskum Market in Yobe State was believed to be armed robbers 60 persons have been confirmed dead following attack by some suspected gunmen who set their houses and livestock ablaze They were said to have used explosive devices for the attack But the Police Command in the state claimed that only 34 persons were killed at the operation But a trader who survived the attacked Ardo Abdullahi narrated why the gunmen attacked them at the market that some suspected robbers stormed the market and forcefully collected money from them He said: “While we were in the market a group of armed robbers came in a Volkswagen Golf car opened fire and started extorting money from us (traders) Our people resisted and caught one of them The suspect was beaten and burnt to death by angry traders “I suspect that the remaining robbers escaped and came back around 6:00pm with explosive materials burnt down all the buildings cars and structures in the cattle market and shot at random on everyone in the market” The Secretary of the Cattle Traders Union Alhaji Maigari Lamido put the death toll at 60 when Yobe State Governor Ibrahim Gaidam visited the market to sympathise with the traders But Police Commissioner Moses Onariti said 34 people were killed; 29 hospitalised He said no arrest was made relating to the attack The Secretary of Nigerian Red Cross in the state Zabu Buba said his men took about 30 people to the hospital There were indications that the death toll may have exceeded the official figure as some of the dead were already being identified and buried by their relatives Such bodies were neither taken to the hospital nor were they recorded Lamido told the governor that 40 cows and 17 vehicles were burnt down by the assailants in the gun raid The governor also visited the Potiskum General Hospital where he directed that a special committee be set up to ascertain the extent of damage adding that the government would take over the payment of hospital bills of the victims He said families of the victims will be assisted based on the recommendation of the committee Potiskum a usually boisterous town was thrown into mourning following the attack A resident Adamu Sambo said all the entry and exit points in the town were blocked by security operatives and people sent home early before the 10pm curfew dateline Crowds of sympathisers trooped to the hospital in search of their loved ones The Emir of Fika and Chairman of the Yobe State Council of Chiefs Dr Muhammadu Abali Ibn Muhammadu Idrissa was at the hospital to sympathise with the relations of the victims The royal father was deeply moved when he saw the bodies in the mortuary He said he was sad over the “unfortunate” incident The Emir of Potiskum Alhaji Umaru Bubaram Ibn Wuriwa Bauya also visited the market and condemned the attack" said Sen. youre running away not helping them and pretending its

[Update: And today a third case was confirmed in Illinois The patient was someone in contact with the first US MERS patient] You may be wondering what the hoopla is about if there are only three cases in the US Let me tell you What is MERS MERS is a respiratory disease that is caused by the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus" (MERS-CoV) MERS is in the same family of viruses as SARS and the common cold but it appears so far to be less transmissible The virus first appeared in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and to date there are over 500 lab-confirmed cases of the disease worldwide and more than 145 people have died The virus has spread to other countries in the Arabian Peninsula and it’s thought to have originated from camels What are the symptoms Shortness of breath fever and coughing In some cases it can be fatal with 30% of people contracting the disease dying but the first US patient in Indiana has fully recovered and is discharged from the hospital How severe a case is likely depends on the initial health of the person who contracts it How did the virus get to the United States In both cases the virus was imported into the United States by people living in Saudi Arabia who work in health care settings The second patient in Florida flew from Jeddah to London and then Boston From there the patient traveled to Atlanta and then Orlando During travel the patient and started feeling symptoms When the patient arrived at the emergency room of a Florida hospital on May 8 they were put into isolation and the patient is currently in stable condition The CDC has frequently said that cases of MERS in the US have been expected so the arrival is not a surprise The third case as mentioned was someone in contact with the first US MERS patient in Illinois On desktop roll over this graphic to get a closer look; on mobile click to zoom Heather Jones How is the virus transmitted What we know about the virus is that human transmission appears to only occur when someone has direct contact with an infected person That could mean treating a patient in their home or in a hospital setting Still the health care workers in Indiana who interacted with the MERS patient have twice tested negative for the virus Am I at risk The CDC says the risk for Americans is extremely low The CDC released a travel alert for the Arabian Peninsula reminding travelers to pay attention to their health before and after their trip However health care workers serving in the Middle East are recommended to take necessary precautions to protect themselves from infection The CDC currently has a team in Indiana and Florida to monitor the infection as well as a team in Saudi Arabia studying the disease But what if I recently traveled to the Arabian Peninsula How do I know if I’m infected The incubation period for the disease is around five to 14 days If within 14 days after traveling to these countries you experience symptoms of respiratory illness you can check with your health care provider and explain your recent travel But again so far the disease appears to transmit when someone has direct contact with an infected person usually caring for that person Is there going to be an outbreak in the US soon Infectious disease experts don’t appear to think so Take SARS as a model: the disease started in Southern China in the early 2000s resulted in over 8000 cases and 774 deaths But only eight cases made it to the United States and none of those patients died from the disease MERS is less virulent than SARS and the spread of SARS was aided by the existence of “superspreaders” who were people who spread the virus in much more excessive amounts than others according to Dr Amesh Adalja an infectious disease physician with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center who specializes in pandemic policy There are currently no MERS superspreaders “This disease doesnt spread efficiently Its hostile but it seems casual contacts have not been becoming ill” says Dr Adalja So I don’t need to freak out right now Take a deep breath The fact that there are three cases of MERS in the United States is more of a message to health care workers If a patient comes in complaining of severe respiratory symptoms it’s a good idea to ask them where they’ve traveled As for the rest of us the usual hygiene rules come into play The CDC recommends the following: Contact us at editors@timecom Why was definition of foreign source changed? who claims to be his father. see?
