UK avian flu virus identified as H7N7

first_imgJun 5, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The avian influenza virus that struck chickens on a farm in England this week has been identified as highly pathogenic H7N7 and is probably related to viruses that have sometimes surfaced in other European countries, British officials said today.”Preliminary analysis . . . indicates that this H7N7 strain is likely to be related to viruses which have occasionally been detected in domestic poultry and wild birds elsewhere in Europe,” the United Kingdom Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) said in a statement.DEFRA said further laboratory tests were under way. The statement did not suggest how closely related the virus may be to the H7N7 strain that caused a series of major poultry outbreaks and forced the destruction of millions of birds in the Netherlands in 2003. That virus also infected at least 89 people, causing mild conjunctivitis in most cases but killing a veterinarian.First reported Jun 3, the latest outbreak occurred on a farm near Banbury, Oxfordshire, about 80 miles northwest of London. A flock of 25,000 chickens is being culled.”The Health Protection Agency has advised that H7N7 avian flu remains largely a disease of birds and the risk to human health is low,” a DEFRA statement said. The agency set up protection and surveillance zones around the outbreak site and said a full epidemiologic investigation was under way.Richard Court, the owner of the farm, said the source of the outbreak was unknown, according to British newspaper reports today.The United Kingdom has had some previous avian flu outbreaks involving H7 viruses, but World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) records show no previous H7N7 outbreaks in the country.In May 2007, a low-pathogenic H7N2 virus surfaced on a chicken farm in northern Wales. Four people who had contact with infected birds tested positive for the virus, but symptoms were mild, according to reports at the time.About a year earlier, in April 2006, a low-pathogenic H7N3 virus turned up on three farms in Dereham, northeast of London. One farm worker was found to be infected.See also: Jun 5 DEFRA statementOIE reports on 2008 H7N7 outbreaklast_img read more

Female-Bashing Tennis Director Quits

first_imgLOS ANGELES — The tournament director of the BNP Paribas Open who said women’s pro tennis players “ride on the coattails of the men” resigned March 21, ending his 29-year association with the event.Tournament owner Larry Ellison said in a statement that Raymond Moore was quitting as Chief Executive Officer and Tournament Director of the $7 million event featuring men’s and women’s players in the California desert. Moore informed Ellison of his decision when they spoke earlier in the day.“Ray let me know that he has decided to step down from his roles as CEO and Tournament Director effective immediately,” Ellison said. “I fully understand his decision.”A tournament spokesman could offer no further details on Moore’s resignation, citing only Ellison’s statement.Moore apologized after he was roundly criticized by executives from the women’s and men’s pro tours, players Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka and on social media for his comments March 20.The 69-year-old former touring pro from South Africa had been CEO of the tournament since 2012. He was involved with the event for 29 years as a former owner and managing partner before assuming his most recent post.He oversaw the operations of the tournament and the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which Ellison also owns. Years ago, Moore and fellow ex-player Charlie Pasarell started PM Sports Management, which oversaw the tournament as it expanded.“In my next life when I come back I want to be someone in the WTA because they ride on the coattails of the men. They don’t make any decisions and they are lucky. They are very, very lucky,” Moore said. “If I was a lady player, I’d go down every night on my knees and thank God that Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal were born, because they have carried this sport.”He also referred to women’s players as “physically attractive and competitively attractive.” Moore later apologized, calling his comments “in extremely poor taste and erroneous.”“I am truly sorry for those remarks, and apologize to all the players and WTA as a whole,” the statement said. “We had a women’s final today that reflects the strength of the players, especially Serena and Victoria, and the entire WTA. Again, I am truly sorry for my remarks.”Moore clearly had no intention to leave his post based on comments he made to reporters March 20 on the last day of the two-week tournament. Before the backlash over his controversial comments began, he was asked how long he planned to remain in charge.“Firstly, I love what I’m doing. I’m passionate about it. I enjoy it,” Moore said. “Who knows who the face of the tournament will be down the road. But I don’t think that, oh, I’m going to stop next year or three years.”Ellison, a billionaire and co-founder of Oracle Corp., credited Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova and Serena and Venus Williams, as well as other female athletes, for their leadership in treating women and men equally in sports.“I’m proud to say that it is now a decade-long tradition at our tournament at Indian Wells, and all the major tennis tournaments, to pay equal prize money to both the women and the men,” Ellison said in his statement.Ellison thanked the “great women athletes” who fought so hard in pursuit of equal prize money in pro tennis. “All of us here at the BNP Paribas Open promise to continue working with everyone to make tennis a better sport for everybody,” he said.(BETH HARRIS, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

The Warriors Duped The NBA

Conventional NBA wisdom is based on a set of assumptions about how the game is played, and those, in turn, are based on what has worked best in the past. Don’t shoot 3-pointers off the dribble. Don’t throw 60-foot alley-oops. Don’t play JaVale McGee. Yet each time the Warriors add some new theatricality to their game, like the transition 3-pointer or the pull-up 3 or a propensity for 30-foot alley-oops to JaVale in traffic, they aren’t just stunting on the league; they’re exploiting its assumptions.There is a simple explanation for how that works: The Warriors have style. For all the systemic differences between the aspirant 2013-14 team led by Mark Jackson and the swashbuckling 2015 champions led by Steve Kerr, the most transformative was that Kerr’s Warriors have style and Jackson’s did not. And style endures. Even after bringing on Kevin Durant, the Warriors never acceded and played like a traditional powerhouse, grinding teams down with sheer force of talent. Instead, the team continued playing its chaotic brand of offense, with Stephen Curry just as likely to be setting off-ball screens to free up Ian Clark as he is to be working in a high pick-and-roll. The unanimous MVP just in your grasp, the undrafted journeyman springs free for a look. Setup and payoff. The coyote roller-skates off the cliff.The Warriors don’t merely seek out the best practices of the day — they create value where there’s not supposed to be any.The leading example of the Warriors turning audacity into efficiency is the team’s signature shot: the pull-up 3. When Curry began pulling up from the cheap seats a few short years ago, the reaction was first one of awe, and then one of appreciation: The shots were fearless, and few could make them as often as Curry, but they also worked because most defenses never dreamed that that was a shot anyone wanted. Only recently, as a wave of pull-up 3s has swept across the league, have we begun to appreciate how Curry’s trademark opens up the floor for the Warriors.But pull-ups are just one of several ways the Warriors have bucked orthodoxy to remake the league’s ideas about smart basketball. Seeking out free throws has been a hallmark of the modern analytic game for as long as Derrick Rose has been harangued for avoiding them. Yet the Warriors don’t shoot very many of them. They ranked just 20th in free throw rate during this regular season, and while they’ve drawn more fouls in the playoffs, their postseason rate was about average among the playoff field.Meanwhile, the team has moved away from the league’s most popular play, which powers hyper-modern offenses like the Rockets’ and the Raptors’: the pick-and-roll. Golden State was last in the league in percent of plays that finished in the hands of a pick-and-roll ball handler at about 11 percent,1 less than half the rate posted by league leaders Toronto and Charlotte, and last in the league in percent of plays used by a pick-and-roll roll man at 4 percent.2 The NBA is increasingly a pick-and-roll league, but the Warriors have gone in the opposite direction, even if they have their moments of doubt.“I definitely want to be in more pick-and-roll situations, whether I’m getting shots or whether we’re manufacturing ball movement,” Curry said a few days after the team’s Christmas Day loss to Cleveland. “That’s a strength of ours, regardless of how teams play us.”In some ways, eschewing the pick-and-roll is a luxury the Warriors enjoy because they have two MVP-level players in Curry and Kevin Durant on the roster. But passing up pick-and-roll opportunities also enables Golden State to be the best long-range 2-point shooting team in the league, thanks to that chaos-engine offense. The Warriors don’t take a ton of the shots — they ranked 20th in the regular season in attempting them3 — but ranked first in percentage, making 47 percent.It may seem natural that the best 3-point shooting team is also the best long-2 team, but the Warriors are also seeking these shots out. Math is supposed to warn against that.Golden State ranked in the top 10 of total spot-up 2-point attempts during the season, and the team was again far ahead of the pack in percentage on those shots, hitting more than 50 percent — 2 percentage points higher than the second-place team, and more than five points better than the San Antonio Spurs, who led in attempts. As a late-stage development in a possession, it’s almost cruel. Chase Curry and Durant and all the other Warriors shooters up and down the floor, around screens, and out far beyond the 3-point line — sell out to cover all the most valuable ground on the court as fast as you can — and a guy like David West might just pop out to 17 feet and kill you anyway. The painted tunnel only works for the roadrunner.That’s what the Warriors do: They don’t merely seek out the best practices of the day — they create value where there’s not supposed to be any. It’s their most endearing trait, the thing that makes them a thrill even as they threaten to dominate the league at a magnitude unseen since Bill Russell’s Celtics. Very often, their “inefficient” ideas are also the most fun. Thearon W. Henderson / Getty Images If the Warriors are light on Chuck Jones’s disciplines, they’re absolutely bankrupt when it comes to being disciplined. The one thing that’s plagued the team, in past seasons and in this one, has been turnovers. The Warriors have floated around the middle of the pack per possession, but they have a talent for slapstick turnovers at the worst possible times. Early on in his tenure, Kerr took to calling the team’s helter-skelter turnovers — the ones that flew into the second row, endangering the announcers’ table more than the opposing defense — “plays of insanity,” the implication being that Golden State could be even more dominant if it could snuff out these momentary lapses. When the Warriors dominated the Cavs in Game 1, players pointed to the team’s four turnovers as a sign that they took the series seriously. It’s not quite so simple, though.With the game on the line, we expect a team to resort to less obviously risky plays. Not Steph whipping no-looks on one play and JaVale McGee flying by with an ACME rocket strapped to his ass the next.Some Warriors turnovers are a function of carelessness. But others are more about the team’s identity since Kerr arrived, what the younger Jim Mora used to refer to as Michael Vick’s “athletic arrogance” — the belief that they are the best team in the world and capable of summoning any necessary magic to the court. Sometimes this backfires, as it did with Curry’s infamous behind-the-back turnover in the closing minutes of Game 7 last season.“Yeah, I still think about that,” Curry told ESPN’s Chris Haynes just before the Finals began. “In thinking about that game, it’s funny because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays. I came out in preseason this year and threw a behind-the-back pass because I have confidence that I can do it and it won’t change that.”That confidence will lead to more turnovers. But it will also lead to some of the prettiest basketball the league’s ever seen, and you can trace the contagion from that Curry pass to Durant sauntering into a pull-up 3 to win Game 3.And it doesn’t just affect the stars: The Warriors ethos infused Andrew Bogut and Zaza Pachulia with the spirit of Vlade Divac and Brad Miller over the last three seasons, and even drew out latent passing skills from Marreese Speights and West. On the Warriors, veterans are empowered to throw surprising, stunting passes — passes that contribute to the team’s 2-point offense being so unguardable.4And that was the promise of this team! That when things tightened up, they were just as likely to throw the full-court alley-oop, or toss a behind-the-back bounce pass through traffic, or plant a shooter in front of Jeff Van Gundy and pull up from 40. It’s different from just about every other team we’ve seen. With the game on the line, we expect a team to resort to less obviously risky plays — brawny hero ball, or a calculating high screen and read that’s got more deltoid than fast twitch to it. Not this. Not Steph whipping no-looks on one play and JaVale McGee flying by with an ACME rocket strapped to his ass the next. Ben Margot / AP Chuck Jones, the classic Warner Bros. animator, used to say that we are all defined by our disciplines: When anything is possible, the things we don’t do are just as important as the things we do. Bugs Bunny does not act unless provoked; the roadrunner does not harm the coyote; the Houston Rockets do not shoot long 2s; and the New York Knicks do not catch the roadrunner. The Golden State Warriors do not have many disciplines to speak of. They’re basketball anarchists, unmoored from any concept of the “right” way to play as defined by crusty traditionalists or, importantly, the current generation of NBA nerds.For three seasons now, the Warriors have been the de facto champions of analytic basketball, the calculator boys whose success rests on mathematical principles. Other teams have gone to further extremes, but Golden State is unquestionably the flagship — as they’ll be the first to tell you. And in the afterglow of the team’s second title in three seasons, who’s to argue?But look a little closer and it’s apparent that the Warriors’ game doesn’t reflect the analytics it has come to represent. The Warriors aren’t math — they don’t represent order; they upend logic. They’re Bugs Bunny pulling himself out of the hat. The Warriors are the punchline. Marcio Jose Sanchez / AP The Warriors’ success raises questions about the new-school wisdom of the league. Is this a blueprint for future contenders or merely the imprint of a uniquely talented team? The answer might simply be that Golden State’s talent level is exceptional, that they can buck league trends because they aren’t like the rest of the league. And that’s partly true. They do this through individual excellence, yes, but that’s also the point: Golden State already had the talent the rest of the league craves, and now it’s using that talent in ways that other great teams haven’t. The fearlessness that Kerr allowed to flourish had taken root long before Durant came to town.So why not pull up from 40 feet, or throw 60-foot alley-oops, or play your small forward at center in the Finals just to see what happens? Why let the coyote get his defense set? It could be that there’s a steep minimum talent requirement to make playing like the Warriors effective, but there’s a steep talent requirement for anyone looking to win the NBA title.The Golden State Warriors are the team of the future — but that future may not be the one we thought it was.Read more: They Are Kevin Durant’s Warriors Now read more

Football No 9 Ohio State decimates Illinois 5214 on senior day

Ohio State redshirt junior H-back Parris Campbell runs after a catch in the first half of the Buckeyes’ victory against Illinois on Nov. 18. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorPlaying their final home game in Ohio Stadium, Ohio State redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett and 18 other seniors ran roughshod on Illinois. The Fighting Illini seemed powerless to stop an Ohio State offense, which dropped 38 points before the starting unit was subbed out with six minutes to go in the second quarter. By that time, the Illini offense had accumulated just 25 yards.“It’s not a goodbye because we have a lot of ball in front of us,” head coach Urban Meyer said. “But it was an opportunity for our seniors to tip their hat to the class, best fans in the land.”The Buckeyes’ first-team offense retook the field after defensive back Ahmari Hayes picked up backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins’ fumble and returned it 54 yards for Illinois’ first score of the game. But after a 12-yard tight end Marcus Baugh touchdown reception, the starters headed to the bench for a final time as No. 9 Ohio State (9-2, 7-1 Big Ten) coasted to a 52-14 victory against Illinois (2-9, 0-9 Big Ten) Saturday at Ohio Stadium.The victory clinched the Big Ten East for Ohio State and set up a matchup between the Buckeyes and Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship on Dec. 2.“The message in the locker room was get out and get out fast,” redshirt senior center Billy Price said. “Take care of the ball, execute at a high level. We had a good game plan going in, we knew what they were going to do.”In his final home game, Barrett completed 11-of-19 passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns. His first touchdown, an 11-yard pass to sophomore wideout Binjimen Victor, gave him 100 passing touchdowns, making him the first quarterback in program history to reach the century mark. Barrett added five rushes for 33 yards and a touchdown. Ohio State’s offense racked up 543 yards, surpassing the 500-yard mark for the ninth time this season.Victor caught a second touchdown later in the game when Haskins hit him for a 21-yard score in the left side of the end zone. Redshirt junior H-back Parris Campbell caught three passes for a team-leading 59 yards. He also took a reverse for 44 yards.Redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber led the team with 11 carries for 108 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown for Ohio State’s first score of the game and a 43-yard touchdown dash later in the first quarter. The Buckeyes scored three rushing touchdowns in the first quarter, a feat the Illini have not achieved once the entire season. Freshman running back J.K. Dobbins added 12 rushes for 51 yards and a 1-yard touchdown rush.“I will continue to tell y’all, if you get the running game going, everything else opens up,” Price said.Meyer attributed much of the ground-game improvement to the offensive line.“Most improved unit on our team,” Meyer said. “The leadership, the cohesiveness of that group led by their unit leader, [offensive line] coach [Greg Studrawa], has been very noticeable. It was not the strength of our team a year ago. It’s the strength of our team right now. We all know that teams that go to compete with what’s coming up down the road, you have to have a powerful offensive line. The Illinois offense stood no chance against the Buckeyes, either. The Illini accumulated just 105 yards, less yards than in any single game since at least 2000. The visiting team did not pick up a first-down until running back Dre Brown rushed 10 yards to move the chains with 3:37 remaining in the first half.“Defense was dominant,” Meyer said, succinctly. “They did what they had to do.”Ohio State ended the first quarter with 28 points, while the Illini had just 16 yards. The only statistical category Illinois held an advantage in was penalty yards. The visitors were penalized four times for 30 yards in the opening quarter, while the Buckeyes were not flagged.Haskins went 5-for-8 for 77 yards, including one touchdown. He also rushed eight times for 23 yards. The Buckeyes will look to extend its win streak in the final regular-season game of the season when they take on Michigan at noon Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan. read more
