Share Public awareness campaigns are being stepped up in Liberia, where some people believe Ebola is a hoaxSeventeen suspected Ebola patients who went missing in Liberia after a health centre in the capital was attacked have been found, a minister has said.“They were traced and finally they turned themselves in” at a treatment centre, Lewis Brown told the BBC.The government had previously denied they were missing.New UN figures show that 1,229 people have now died since the beginning of this year in the outbreak that has also hit Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.The World Health Organization (WHO) says there were 84 deaths reported between 14 and 16 August.Doctors ‘improving’Ebola has no known cure, but the WHO has ruled that untested drugs can be used to treat patients in light of the scale of the current outbreak – the deadliest to date.It is transmitted by direct contact with the body fluids of an infected person. Initial flu-like symptoms can lead to external haemorrhaging from areas such as eyes and gums, and internal bleeding which can cause organ failure.This man took a young girl out of the West Point health facility during the attackSecurity has been stepped up at health centres treating Ebola patients in LiberiaThe Liberian information minister said the missing patients were now at the newly expanded treatment unit opened over the weekend at the John F Kennedy Memorial Medical Center in the capital, Monrovia.Mr Brown also said the health of three Liberian doctors infected with Ebola had improved after they receiving the experimental drug Zmapp.Two US missionaries, who were flown home for treatment from Liberia, are reportedly recovering from the virus after taking doses of the same medicine.The drug was also given to a 75-year-old Spanish priest who contracted Ebola in Liberia, but he died in Spain last week.In Nigeria, which has had four fatal Ebola cases, health officials say five people have now recovered from the virus and been discharged from hospital in Lagos. Another three are still being treated.‘A hoax’The attack on the quarantine centre, where 37 people were being held in Monrovia’s densely populated West Point township, took place on Saturday evening.There are conflicting reports over what sparked the riot, in which medical supplies were also stolen.In neighbouring Sierra Leone, the agricultural minister has said the outbreak is also having a severe impact on the economy, as 66% of people were farmers and agriculture accounted for 46% of GDP and 25% of all exports.“We’re expecting devastating effects not only on the labour, but we’re also talking about farms being abandoned by people running away from the epicentres,” Joseph Sam Sesay told the BBC.Since the outbreak spread to Nigeria in July, when a person infected with Ebola flew from Liberia to Lagos, several airlines have stopped flights to the worst-affected countries.Kenya’s ban on people from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone entering the East African nation comes into force on Wednesday – and Cameroon has closed its land, sea and air borders with Nigeria.BBC Newscenter_img Share 176 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Gunners chairman wants more success

first_img Press Association Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick is confident manager Arsene Wenger can soon deliver more trophies to the Emirates Stadium following their FA Cup triumph. Press Association Sport understands the formal announcement of Wenger’s contract extension is imminent, with the 64-year-old soon set to head off to the World Cup in his role as a pundit for French television. Keswick said: “I hope he will continue and there will be successes to come in the very near future. We have added one trophy, and we want more. center_img “Anybody who does a job like that, for as long as he has, deserves every success that comes his way. He did it and I have never seen a man more delighted,” Keswick added on the club’s official website. Wenger has been promised up to a £100million transfer budget with which to bolster the squad in an attempt to bridge the seven-point gap on Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City. Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann is one reported target, with Carlos Vela potentially involved as Arsenal have a buy-back clause on the Mexican forward which could be used as leverage. Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier is an option should out-of-contract Bacary Sagna leave. The Ivory Coast defender, 21, told Eurosport France: “It is true that I would be a bit disappointed to stay in Toulouse after a season like this one. I want to try something else. “I have never prioritised a club in England as even the promoted clubs are respectable, so I would take the opportunity for the one that will show the most interest in me, that will give me the most game time. “After that, you can’t really say no to Arsenal. “It is a club with history, with a French manager, who has welcomed many France players. Plus, Arsenal are always thereabouts when it comes to trophies and a club that plays in the Champions League.” The future of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, who played at Wembley against Hull, is also unclear as he too could depart on a free transfer, with Newcastle and Swansea both touted as possible destinations. last_img read more

Hockey: Does it belong outside?

first_imgOn Sunday, the No. 19 Wisconsin men’s hockey team played in a heavily-hyped outdoor game against the No. 2 Minnesota Golden Gophers in front of over 52,000 fans at Soldier Field in the Hockey City Classic.Look at this event on paper and it seemed perfect.Four ranked teams – No. 18 Wisconsin, No. 12 Notre Dame, No. 3 Miami (Ohio) and No. 2 Minnesota – in back-to-back games is sure to make any college hockey fan’s eyes open wide with delight.Over the last few years, many hockey teams in both the NCAA and NHL have taken this approach – the NHL hosted an outdoor game last year between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers at Citizens Bank Park – to help draw attention to a sport that seems destined to forever play little brother to basketball, football and baseball in the race for American sports fans’ hearts.Unfortunately for sports fans who are drawn in by the spectacle and charm of an outdoor game – a return to the sport’s primitive origins when it was played outside on a frozen lake – primitive is the only word to describe a modern outdoor hockey game too.A look at Sunday’s game provides the perfect example.While the relatively warm 32-degree temperature and bright sun was welcomed by fans watching the game in the stands, with temperatures hovering right around freezing, maintaining the quality of the ice was a problem all afternoon.Slush began to accumulate behind the goal and the ice played much slower than an indoor rink where the temperature can be controlled.What was the result?Sloppy play from all of the teams, particularly Minnesota – an exciting team that has been successful this year playing a fast, counter-attacking style – who was handicapped by the conditions in a much slower, much more simple game against Wisconsin.Now imagine this is a fan’s first impression of the sport – not such a good one to have. If hockey wants to draw in more attention and expand its fan base, it will just have to come up with something else.Outdoor hockey is awesomeOutdoor hockey is great in the sense that it’s a spectacle, so stop hatin’. Outdoor hockey games happen once or twice a year, and are therefore appreciated with the grandor of the game that you labeled as primitive. It’s a return to tradition and history of hockey that draws the amusement of fans from all across the nation.The 52,000 fans who packed Soldier Field were there to enjoy a sight they can’t witness everywhere. Only seven NHL regular season games have been played outdoors. The average attendance of the five NHL Winter Classics rise to more than 53,000. For reference, the Chicago Blackhawks host the most fans in the NHL, averaging little more than 21,000 spectators each game, less than half of these outdoor games. There seems to be little more that could be done to get hockey fans to get excited.And so what if there is a little slush out on the ice. I wasn’t on hand but I’m willing to bet it made the game even more exciting for the fans that attended. For those stirred up in the negative effects of slush, I’ll preach the word “perseverance,” an all too familiar term for hockey players, the men and women draped in bulky uniforms and chasing around a puck for hours, while their opponents feast on checking their off-balance counterparts into plexiglass. All the gruff and tough listed above almost seem destined to be in battle outdoors, with the sun shining and temperatures flirting with freezing. Those conditions describe what many people call a “perfect day for football” throughout the fall. Instead, tweets poured in Sunday declaring it “a great day for hockey.” And it was.The game was phenomenal. The pace of play may have dipped a tad, but the final score read 3-2 in a heated battle between rivals. Even the most amateur of hockey fans can get excited over that. Let’s not change this.last_img read more
