Tests confirm 5th BSE case in Canadian cow

first_imgApr 17, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A 6-year-old dairy cow in British Columbia, Canada, has been confirmed as that country’s 5th case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). Testing conducted at the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases in Winnipeg, Canada, showed the cow had BSE, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced yesterday. No part of the animal has entered the human food or animal feed chain, Canadian authorities said. The CFIA is investigating how the cow became infected, with special attention to feed practices early in the cow’s life. The cow was from a farm in Fraser Valley. She was identified through Canada’s nationwide BSE surveillance efforts. Four BSE cases have been found in Canada, the first one in May 2003, CIDRAP has reported previously. The last confirmed case was identified in Jan 2006 in a 6-year-old cow in northern Alberta. The first case led to a 2-year ban on shipments of live Canadian cattle into the United States. The US border was reopened in July 2005 to Canadian cattle younger than 30 months old. See also Because of government safeguards, the case does not affect the safety of Canadian beef, another CIDRAP story cited the CFIA as saying last week. Tissues where BSE is known to concentrate in infected animals are removed from all cattle slaughtered in Canada. In addition, cattle at increased risk are tested, and the use of cattle protein in cattle feed is banned.

WHOI: Alvin Submersible Makes 5000th Dive in Gulf of California

first_imgWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)-operated human-occupied research submersible, Alvin, has made it’s 5000th dive at the end of November 2018.Alvin made its 5,000th dive during an expedition to the Guaymas Basin in the Gulf of California.The Navy-owned sub has been through a series of upgrades and advances that have completely re-made the vehicle and vastly expanded its capabilities.“Alvin revolutionized our understanding of the extremes that life can tolerate and caused us to re-think the origin of life on our planet,” said Adam Soule, chief scientist for the National Deep Submergence Facility (NDSF), which operates the sub. “The sub also continues to expand our knowledge of where and how life might exist on other planets.” Alvin, which is supported by funding from the National Science Foundation, executes about 100 dives per year, and over its life has accounted for more than half of all of the scientific dives carried out by human-occupied submersibles worldwide, WHOI noted.Currently, Alvin reaches a depth of 4,500 meters, and soon the sub will complete the final phase of its current upgrade, which will enable it to dive to 6,500 meters, putting 98 percent of the seafloor within its reach.“Alvin helped inspire the development of new generations of deep-submergence technology and vehicles,” said Andy Bowen, director of the National Deep Submergence Facility at WHOI. “And it continues to inspire generations of future scientists, engineers, and explorers.”last_img read more

James Milner set to miss England friendlies with hamstring injury

first_img Press Association It is now most unlikely he will join up with the national team later this week ahead of the trip to Spain for Friday’s match in Alicante. Liverpool have already had issues with England this season after youngster Jordan Rossiter returned injured from under-19 duty having played three 90-minute games in six days. It led to manager Jurgen Klopp complaining about the treatment, saying: “These young players are our future. If we handle them like horses we get horses.” The 29-year-old was forced off after an hour of Thursday’s 1-0 Europa League win against Rubin Kazan in Russia after taking a knock to his leg. As a result he was left out of Liverpool’s team to face Crystal Palace at Anfield on Sunday – the first time he has missed a Premier League match for the club he joined in the summer. center_img Liverpool midfielder James Milner is expected to miss England’s friendlies with Spain and France after sustaining a hamstring problem. last_img read more

Andy Farrell can’t wait to get started in new role with Ireland

first_imgAndy Farrell says he “can’t wait to get started” after being appointed as Ireland defence coach. He won eight England caps as a player, including three appearances during the 2007 World Cup, after switching codes and joining Saracens. Farrell had enjoyed an outstanding rugby league career, one that saw him make 370 appearances for Wigan, in addition to collecting England and Great Britain honours. Ireland will bid to win a third successive Six Nations title this season. Their opening game is against Wales in Dublin on February 7. And Schmidt will be eager to see his players bounce back from a disappointing World Cup campaign, when they made an emphatic quarter-final exit against Argentina. Prop Cian Healy, though, faces a race against time to be fit to start the Six Nations title defence after undergoing a minor knee operation. The Leinster loosehead opted to go under the knife to coincide with a two-week suspension, and will now fight to be fit for Ireland’s appointment with Wales. Healy’s fellow Leinster prop Mike Ross is expected to return in time for the Wales game, but Schmidt will certainly want Healy on hand. “Cian Healy underwent a scope and clear-out of his right knee yesterday afternoon,” Leinster confirmed in a club statement. “This was an elective procedure, and while we are still waiting for the report, it is expected that he will be out for three to four weeks.” Leinster confirmed that Ireland’s linchpin fly-half Johnny Sexton has returned to full training and will be fit for Friday’s Guinness PRO12 trip to the Ospreys. “To have this opportunity to work with a very talented management and playing group really excites me,” Farrell said. “With a wealth of top-class experienced senior players and a fantastic crop of youngsters pushing hard, the future is very positive for Irish rugby, and I can’t wait to get started.” Farrell and his fellow England assistants Graham Rowntree and Mike Catt departed Twickenham following Australian Eddie Jones’ appointment as head coach. The trio were part of an England coaching team headed by Stuart Lancaster, who left the Rugby Football Union in November following a dismal 2015 World Cup campaign in which England failed to reach the quarter-finals following defeats against Wales and Australia. Farrell, though, will now return to the Test arena with Ireland, and Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt added: “It’s great to have Andy coming into our coaching team. “The quality of his delivery and breadth of his experience, as well as the positive impact he had when coaching a number of our senior players during the 2013 Lions tour, will add real value for us.” And Farrell’s appointment was welcomed by former Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll, who said on Twitter: “So Andy Farrell new @IrishRugby defence coach! Decent business that. Very good coach and motivator. Expect line speed & great kick chase.” Farrell, 40, spent four years as an England assistant coach, in addition to being part of Warren Gatland’s coaching support staff on the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour that was highlighted by a 2-1 Test series victory over Australia. Farrell, who left his position as assistant England coach last month, will take up the role following this season’s RBS 6 Nations Championship, the Irish Rugby Football Union announced. The IRFU said Farrell’s contract would commence ahead of the June tour to South Africa and run until the completion of World Cup 2019 in Japan. Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse offense gets off to strong start but struggles late; Orange snaps 7-game losing streak to Pitt

first_img Published on October 7, 2012 at 11:57 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu This time, the Syracuse offense clicked from the start. The Orange rolled down the field on its first drive, mixing four rushes and four passing plays to score the game’s first touchdown.“We were ready to go. We’ve had two weeks to prepare for this and we were just ready to go,” quarterback Ryan Nassib said. “We were anxious to get out there and start playing.”The eight-play, 70-yard drive was an impressive start as Nassib went 4-for-4 for 51 yards, and running back Adonis Ameen-Moore punched it across the goal line from 1 yard out. It was a stark contrast to SU’s first four games when it struggled to find its rhythm in the first half. The uncharacteristic fast start proved to be enough offense for SU in its 14-13 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday night, thanks to a stellar performance by the defense.Running back Jerome Smith took two straight carries 14 yards to get the offense going on the drive. Smith nodded his head as he walked confidently back to the huddle after his second carry, feeding off the energy generated by a three-and-out forced by the defense to open the game.Then Nassib went to work, moving SU to the 18 yard line with three completions. Three plays later, Ameen-Moore capped it with his first career touchdown.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think when you come off a bye week, you want to go out early and have some success,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “Now, we didn’t maintain it during that game offensively. But to come out early and do that, I would have expected more.”But as Marrone said, the SU offense sputtered for the remainder of the game. The team marched inside the 10 in the second quarter, but ended in disappointment when Nassib’s pass for Marcus Sales in the end zone was picked off.Nassib said the team was too hyped up throughout the game and never found its focus. And Marrone said the unit is still searching for consistency.“You work on a bye week, you work on those things, you get the ball, you do a nice job and then bam, you want to get it again and keep going,” Marrone said. “We have a lot of work to do.”Syracuse ends Pittsburgh’s streak of dominanceJustin Pugh and the rest of the Syracuse seniors had yet to defeat Pittsburgh in their careers heading into Friday night’s matchup. They were part of a seven-game losing streak to the Panthers dating back to 2005.The Orange ended that streak with its victory over Pitt in the team’s Big East opener at the Carrier Dome.“It’s amazing. I looked back. We haven’t beaten them in eight years,” Pugh said. “So to go out there and beat that team and win it in like, a gritty way that we did, we kind of put the game on the offense’s hands and we feel good to come out and get that win.”The win also ended a five-game losing streak in the Big East. It was a much-needed victory for a team that appeared to be on its way to another losing season after a 1-3 start.Nassib said he hadn’t thought about the building pressure on the team to earn its first conference and Football Bowl Subdivision win since it defeated West Virginia on a Friday night last October.His focus was on the Panthers.“The only thing I wanted to do was come in today and beat Pitt,” Nassib said. “That was one of my personal goals this year and I’m glad I achieved it.”Broyld watches from the sidelinesAfter seeing time in each of Syracuse’s first four games, freshman running back Ashton Broyld wasn’t in the team’s plans on Friday night.“Our philosophy is that we play the best players that we feel give us the best chance to win,” Marrone said. “And that’s not just only Ashton Broyld, that’s a lot of other players on this team too.”The freshman remained on the sidelines for the duration of the Orange’s victory over Pittsburgh. Though he arrived as a talented playmaker after a year at Milford Academy, Broyld is still trying to carve out his role with SU in his first season.He was used as a receiver against Northwestern, making four catches for 28 yards. Against Stony Brook, he formed part of an efficient three-player rushing attack and finished with 61 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. But Broyld was used sparingly against Minnesota and lost a fumble in the red zone. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

McKnight runs into NCAA allegations

first_imgJunior running back Joe McKnight came under fire over the winter break, as accusations of an illegal gift from a businessman, which would be an NCAA violation, became wide-spread.Escaping pressure · While NCAA allegations swirled during winter recess, McKnight took the opportunity to declare his intent to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, forgoing his senior year of eligibility. – Daily Trojan | Brandon HuiThe Los Angeles Times ran an article just before Christmas that looked at McKnight’s use of a 2006 Land Rover that he had been seen driving. The vehicle allegedly belongs to a Santa Monica businessman, Scott Schenter, who works for the County Assessor’s office. Schenter also founded a company called USC Marketing in 2008, which he says stands for United States China Marketing and is not connected to the university.Any use of this vehicle by McKnight as a benefit from a marketing representative, agents or anyone of that nature would be a violation of NCAA rules. Accordingly, the NCAA responded to the accusations by investigating the situation.McKnight was even forced to sit out of the Trojan’s San Francisco Emerald Bowl game after he was deemed unable to play by USC’s compliance department.Schenter has reached out to the media in defense of McKnight, saying he has “nothing to do with agents, marketing players or representing athletes,” and that he has no ties to USC, as he is a University of Washington fan.Schenter continued to explain that the vehicle belongs to a young woman named Johana Michelle Beltran, McKnight’s girlfriend, and that he helped her purchase the vehicle because the Beltran family was having trouble getting qualified for a loan.McKnight has denied driving the car, though a Times reporter has claimed to see him driving it more than one time.While everyone’s focus has shifted from McKnight to the NCAA basketball sanctions and Pete Carroll’s decision to become the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, McKnight announced his decision to enter the NFL draft and leave USC a year early.“The time is right,” McKnight told ESPN. “This was my first healthy season and I really don’t want to come back and risk injury.”The time may be right in terms of injury, but his decision also comes at a time where intense speculation follows him all over the USC campus. McKnight, however, explained that these ongoing investigations and allegations do not have an impact on the decision he has made, but that other factors, like the comparison to former Trojan Reggie Bush, have solidified his NFL verdict.“If I would have come back it would have been to pursue the Heisman,” he said. “My career was OK. It was good, but not like Reggie. There was a constant pressure to be like Reggie.”McKnight has more in common with Bush than he might have wanted after the allegations made by the Times last month. USC is already under investigation by the NCAA along with the Pac-10 about the accusations that Bush (and basketball star O.J. Mayo, as well) received improper benefits during their time at school.McKnight’s decision to turn pro during this time in USC sports may be fortuitous, since, after Carroll’s resignation settled, the focus would have shifted back to McKnight.last_img read more
