After spending many years in front of the camera and dealing with an array of digestive issues, Acts of Violence and Hurricane Heist actress Melissa Boloña was on the hunt for a product that could help improve her gut health — and what she discovered was so much more.“Growing up, I always had digestive and stomach issues, and as I got older I got into a big wellness rut,” she tells Us Weekly exclusively.

Asian countries struggle to contain avian flu

first_img A few day ago, Indonesia’s vice president, Jusuf Kalla, announced that the government planned to extend the ban on backyard poultry to residential areas throughout the country. In earlier news reports, officials blamed local animal-health officials and farmers for not maintaining poultry vaccination programs and farmers for hatching poultry illegally. Meanwhile in Thailand, 11 people from 9 provinces are being monitored for avian flu, Bloomberg News reported today. All have flulike symptoms and had recent contact with dead poultry, Suphan Srithamma, a spokesperson for the public health ministry, told Bloomberg today. He said none of the patients have tested positive for the H5N1 virus, but they will be monitored for 10 days. “Farmers still don’t take vaccination seriously enough,” Hoang Van Nam, deputy head of Vietnam’s animal health department, told Bloomberg. “It will be extremely hard for local veterinary officials to undertake proper fowl vaccination without the support of those raising the poultry.” Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari told residents culling is urgently needed, the AP reported. “People infected by bird flu have only a small chance of survival. With no medicine to fight the virus and the pattern of the disease still unclear, we have to cut the chain of transmission, which means killing fowl,” she said. Thawatchai told Thai News Agency today that four members of a duck-farming family in the province were suspected of having avian flu after they consumed 2 birds that had died. Authorities slaughtered 600 ducks at the farm and instituted a 2-week quarantine to prevent the spread of the disease. Herlien Krisnaningsih, of the Bogor Agribusiness Agency, said her department had not received any instructions from the central government on how to carry out the culls. “We are not ready yet to carry out the central government’s call because it will be extremely costly, and we believe it will discourage officers in the field who are struggling to prevent the virus from spreading,” she told the Post. Jan 19, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The H5N1 avian influenza situation in Asia remained active today as Indonesia began clearing Jakarta of backyard fowl to curb the spread of the disease, Vietnam fought a poultry outbreak in an eighth province, and Thailand tested several people for suspected infections. Residents have until Jan 31 to surrender the banned fowl, including chickens, ducks, swans, quail, and pigeons, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported today. The government promised to pay $1.40 for each bird surrendered for culling. Officials were also concerned that 30 pigs on the farm may have contracted the virus, TNA reported.center_img Starting Feb 1, government officials will go door-to-door confiscating banned birds, the governor of Jakarta told the AP recently. Recent confirmed H5N1 outbreaks in Thailand came after a 6-month lull, the health ministry said. The country’s last WHO-confirmed human case was reported in September 2006. Thailand has had 25 cases and 17 deaths, most of them in 2004. Thawatchai Kamoltham, chief public health officer of northern Thailand’s Phitsanulok province, said 26 people were being monitored because they became ill after contact with dead birds, according to a report today from Xinhua, China’s state news agency. Fifteen of them were officials who took part in recent culling activities. Three were admitted to hospitals, and the rest were being monitored at home. In Vietnam, the health ministry announced that avian flu killed some ducks in Can Tho province, bringing to 8 the number of provinces in the Mekong Delta affected by recent poultry outbreaks, Bloomberg News reported today. The virus killed 30 ducklings, and the remaining 40 ducks in the flock were culled to stop the disease, the ministry said. Officials of Bogor, a town that neighbors Jakarta, branded the culling plan unrealistic and too expensive, and said it was based on an emotional reaction to the spate of recent human cases, the Jakarta Post reported 2 days ago. Government authorities in Indonesia banned backyard poultry in the country’s capital after five human cases were reported so far this month, all in Jakarta or its suburbs. In several instances, poultry deaths were reported in the patients’ neighborhoods. The country has been battling dozens of outbreaks in the Mekong Delta since early December. Though no human H5N1 illnesses have been reported since November 2005, Vietnam leads the world in the number of cases, with 93. Indonesia has resisted widespread culling in the past, despite the high number of human illnesses: 79 cases and 61 deaths have been confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Backyard farmers are often reluctant to hand over their sick or at-risk birds. The Associated Press (AP) reported today that the country has about 350 million backyard chickens, many of which are in Jakarta and surrounding areas.last_img read more

Tokyo enlists nightclub workers for Q&A-style videos to fight coronavirus

first_img“How often should we sanitize our hands?”Those are some of the questions posed in the three videos that feature young workers from nightclubs in the city’s red-light districts where infections have crept up since the government lifted a state of emergency in late May.In the first of the 7-8 minute videos, a nightclub host Shota Taira asks the doctor general questions such as whether an asymptomatic person who has tested positive could infect others.Taira then appears to toss a heart-shaped pillow virtually to a hostess in the next video, passing the Q&A baton. Alarmed by a spike in infections in Tokyo’s nightlife districts, the metropolitan government has released educational videos in the form of a Q&A between nightclub hosts, a hostess and a doctor, hoping to stem the spread of the outbreak.”What kind of symptoms can a young COVID-19 patient expect?””What are medical costs like?” Her questions center on prevention measures, while the final questioner, another host, focuses on what to do if infected.The doctor recommends temperature checks at the nightclub entrance, safe distancing between seats, and cautions against drinking directly out of the same bottle or having customers served by different hostesses.Recent outbreaks in Tokyo have occurred in the Kabukicho and Ikebukuro red-light districts’ many host clubs, where young men entertain women customers over drinks, and also at the female equivalent hostess or “cabaret” clubs.Tokyo has seen new daily infections top 200 in four of the last six days, small compared with outbreaks in some other countries but hovering at record levels for the city. The majority of those infected are in their 20s and 30s with light or no symptoms, making it difficult to trace the virus.Tokyo has targeted red-light districts for aggressive testing and has urged nightclubs to follow safety guidelines.Japanese Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura has warned that nightclubs could be suspended if they do not comply. center_img Topics :last_img read more

Messi caps Barcelona win over Mallorca on La Liga return

first_imgMallorca’s clash with Barcelona was played out in an empty stadium in the Balearic Islands as La Liga continued its return from a three-month shutdownBefore matches were suspended in Spain because of coronavirus on March 12, Barca had regained top spot but only after being convincingly beaten by Madrid the week before.This performance suggests time away might have done them good and it remains to be seen now how Madrid respond. Madrid’s next four matches all come after their title rivals have played first.Barcelona were in front after just over a minute as Frenkie de Jong did well to recover the ball from a loose touch before Alba sent a deep cross to the arriving Vidal, who headed in.Mallorca were under relentless pressure as Braithwaite and Messi both went close to adding a second. Mallorca’s Takefusa Kubo, on loan from Real Madrid, forced a good save out of Marc-Andre ter Stegen on the break.But Barca scored a second before half-time as an Alba cross span up and both De Jong and then Messi feathered headers across for Braithwaite to bang in on the half-volley, his first goal for the club.Both teams eased off in the second period and there were smiles on the Barcelona players’ faces when a pitch invader ran on in the 52nd minute wearing an Argentina shirt. He posed for a picture with Alba before being escorted away.Alba added a third after finishing off Messi’s clipped ball over the top and then Messi grabbed a goal himself. Suarez fooled his marker by letting the ball run across his body and Messi weaved inside where he could unleash with his right foot.Mallorca’s defeat, combined with losses for Leganes and Celta Vigo, made it the perfect day for Espanyol, who made up ground on their relegation rivals by beating Alaves.Read Also: Bonucci defends Ronaldo: Even the greatest miss penaltiesChinese striker Wu Lei, who tested positive for coronavirus in March, scored on his first game back to seal a 2-0 victory and put Espanyol within three points of safety.They are now level on points with Leganes, who lost 2-1 at home to Real Valladolid, and three behind Celta, who conceded in the 91st minute for a 1-0 defeat by Villarreal. Lionel Messi returned without a beard and with a goal and two assists as Barcelona resumed their La Liga title challenge on Saturday with a thumping 4-0 victory over Real Mallorca. Lionel Messi (R) celebrates with his Barcelona teammates after scoring the final goal in their 4-0 win at Mallorca on Saturday After three months away because of the coronavirus pandemic, Barca exploded into the lead with just 64 seconds played when Arturo Vidal headed in and Martin Braithwaite struck a second from a Messi headed assist. Jordi Alba latched onto a Messi pass to add a third but not before play was briefly stopped by a pitch invader, who was able to run on, despite the match being closed to fans. Messi then scored a fourth in injury time for his 25th goal of the season. “I’m happy because starting like this is an enormous boost for what’s to come,” said Barcelona coach Quique Setien. Victory extends Barca’s advantage at the top of La Liga to five points over Real Madrid, who can reduce the gap back to two when they restart at home to Eibar on Sunday. La Liga’s first match back came on Thursday between Sevilla and Real Betis, with teams scheduled to each play their remaining 11 matches of the season in less than six weeks.

Clean shaven, and without any sign of the thigh problem that prevented him from training earlier this month, Messi played 90 minutes and looked like he had never been away. – Suarez back – His goal was set up by Luis Suarez and the sight of the Uruguayan coming off the bench would have been welcome for coach Setien too. Suarez has not played since undergoing knee surgery in January and was able to recover during the suspension. He could play an important part in the run-in. Asked what pleased him most, Setien said: “The satisfaction of seeing Luis again on the field. You have to admire the performance he gave in those 35 minutes that he played. Starting like this is very important for him and for the team as well.” Mallorca, who sit 18th in La Liga, were never going to offer the sternest of tests but this was a useful outing for both Barcelona’s fitness and morale.center_img Loading… FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

100th career IMCA Modified win is latest achievement for Dylan Smith

first_imgOSCEOLA, Neb. (May 8) – A driver who’s enjoyed his share of success and then some added another accomplishment to his IMCA resume Friday night.Dylan Smith won his 100th career IMCA Modified feature on May 8 at Boone County Raceway, his lat­est in a long line of achievements that also includes national and IMCA Speedway Motors Su­per Nationals fueled by Casey’s championships.“There was definitely a little pressure. Jake Anson definitely didn’t let me win,” Smith said. “I’ve won a track championship at Albion and we have a lot of friends here. It was nice to be able to celebrate with them afterwards.”From Osceola, Smith followed older brother Damian into the division, a favorite with both his par­ents and grandparents, and won for the first time in 2006.He raced to a personal single-season best 28 checkers along with regional and national crowns in 2009.Smith collected eight track championships and the Canyon Speedway Park Winter Series title, plus four straight Allstar Performance Nebraska State crowns before winning the Saturday night main event at Super Nationals in 2013.“When I started racing, winning national points, Super Nationals or 100 features weren’t even things I thought about,” Smith said. “Super Nationals was definitely the biggest race I’ve ever won. The 2009 State Fair race was another big one because it was the last year the race was held in Lincoln. I’m definitely proud of that one, too.”Other highlights included his 2012 win at RPM Speedway’s Modified Mania, in a field that in­cluded Ken Schrader and Clint Bowyer, and a clean sweep of four Winter Nationals events at Co­copah Speedway in February of 2014.He’s the 41st driver in division history to reach the 100 career win mark and the seventh from Nebraska to do so.“I grew up watching Johnny Saathoff and Kevin Larkins. Think how many wins they’d have if they hadn’t raced against each other,” said Smith, who also joined fellow Cornhusker State speedsters Ronnie Wallace, David Trauernicht, Jon Thompson and Jordan Grabouski in the elite club. “It’s a good group to be in.”last_img read more
