11 infants admitted with adenovirus infection at Institute of Child Health

first_imgKolkata: As many as 11 babies have been admitted at the Institute of Child Health with adenovirus. Some of them are stated to be in serious condition.According to sources in the hospital, five babies have been kept in ventilation while six others have been undergoing treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital. As many as 60-70 children affected with adenovirus have been treated at the hospital for the past two months. Some of the patients died despite best efforts by the doctors. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaThere have been some of cases of pneumonia reported in the hospital as well. It has also been learnt that some children and a few elderly patients have been under medication at various hospitals in the city with similar symptoms. Dr Prabhas Prasun Giri, intensivist at the Institute of child Health, said that the babies who have been admitted to the hospital are aged between four months and one year. A large number of patients have been treated in the hospital so far, most of whom have already been released. Adenovirus can be a serious cause when it comes to morbidity and mortality. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayAccording to a senior official of the hospital, there is also a crisis of influenza vaccine due to the rising number of viral infection patients in the past two months. There is no proper vaccine for adenovirus and hence the doctors are administering other medicines to the patients. The affected children are developing a lung infection, which eventually leads to pneumonia. Children are more susceptible to the virus due to their low immunity. The infection can spread fast among the children who tend to be in close contact with the affected ones. Earlier, it was difficult to identify the virus. Respiratory problem, sore throat, fever, persisting cough and cold are the signs of the virus. If fever keeps recurring despite medication, the patient should be taken to the hospital and also if they complain of irritation in eyes or muscle pain. “Adenovirus appears to be like a common respiratory tract infection. Antibiotics do not properly work when the patient is affected with this virus. We fail to convince the family members that there is no proper medicine for adenovirus. If the symptoms persist for more than two to three days, the cause should get investigated without further delay,” an official of the hospital said.last_img read more

Widespread pension cuts on the way

first_imgA substantial increase in the minimum number of years that Greeks will have to work to qualify for a basic state pension and reductions of up to 15 percent in retirement pay over 700 euros per month are two of the measures being considered by the government in order to meet the target for spending cuts over the next two years.Sources told Kathimerini that government officials are thinking of raising the minimum number of working years needed before retirement from 15 to 20. This would qualify the retiree for a basic pension of under 400 euros per month once they reach the age of 65.The coalition is considering this as an alternative to raising the retirement age from 65 to 67.A fresh reduction in pensions is also likely. One option would be to reduce pensions between 700 and 1,000 euros per month by 3 percent, those between 1,000 and 1,400 per month by 5 percent and any pension over 1,400 by 10 percent.The alternative is to reduce pensions between 700 and 1,000 euros by 2 percent, those between 1,000 and 1,300 by 3 percent, from 1,300 to 1,600 by 5 percent, from 1,600 to 2,000 by 10 percent and any over 2,000 by 15 percent.“The adjustment of pensions will have to happen, even though it will be unpleasant,” said Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis. “This is the only way we can avoid even worse consequences.”Vroutsis said that he intends to submit firm proposals to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras by the end of this week. His ministry is also responsible for savings in a number of other areas beyond pensions. These include civil servants’ salaries.Sources told Kathimerini that the troika has instructed the government to reduce the public sector wage bill to the same level as 2001 in order to meet the savings target of 11.5 billion euros over the next two years. This means that general government wages and social security contributions would have to drop from 11.8 percent of gross domestic product to 10.4 percent, which is equivalent to a reduction of 3 billion euros.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Sortir du nucléaire coûterait cher à la France selon une nouvelle étude

first_imgSortir du nucléaire coûterait cher à la France, selon une nouvelle étudeSelon une étude réalisée par les professionnels de l’électricité, sortir du nucléaire, même progressivement, reviendrait très cher et ferait notamment augmenter la facture des particuliers deux fois plus vite.Concernant l’avenir du nucléaire en France le “statu quo paraît la solution la moins onéreuse”. C’est la conclusion à laquelle est parvenue l’Union française de l’électricité (UFE), le syndicat professionnel représentant les grandes entreprises du secteur, à l’issue d’une nouvelle étude. Une solution qui va à l’encontre de celle proposée par le candidat socialiste à l’élection présidentielle, François Hollande. En effet, celui-ci souhaite réduire à 50 % (contre environ 75% actuellement) la part de l’atome dans la production d’électricité en 2030. Mais pour l’UFE, une telle réduction demanderait à la France un investissement de 382 milliards d’euros dans ses moyens de production, de distribution et ses réseaux, soit un surcoût de 60 milliards. Insistante, l’UFE souligne même que quelque soit la politique envisagée, un important investissement sera nécessaire. Si la France maintient à 70% sa part de production énergétique à base d’énergie nucléaire, 322 milliards d’euros seront de toute façon nécessaires, rapporte Sciences et Avenir.L’UFE pose donc la question : “où va-t-on trouver les financements, quand on sait que les sources sont de plus en plus rares en Europe ?” L’étude réalisée par les professionnels, la première à chiffrer sur des bases fiables le coût d’un abandon progressif de l’atome dans l’Hexagone, estime que la facture du particulier pourrait bondir de 50% en vingt ans si la France réduisait sa dépendance à l’atome à 50%, soit 189 euros le mégawatheure (MWh), contre 126 euros en 2010.Une augmentation des émissions de gaz à effet de serre ? À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéNéanmoins, la  facture serait un peu moins salée (+ 33 %) si la part de l’atome n’était réduite qu’à 70%, tandis que si le nucléaire ne représentait plus que 20% de la production d’énergie, la facture grimperait de 68% à 211 euros le MWh. Réduire la part du nucléaire dans la production d’électricité aura en outre un impact sur la balance commerciale de la France, selon l’UFE.En effet, en ramenant à 50% la part du nucléaire, les exportations françaises d’électricité chuteraient et la balance de paiements serait négative de 6 milliards d’euros. La France, jusqu’ici bon élève pour les émissions de gaz à effet de serre, verrait aussi celles-ci augmenter en cas d’abandon de l’atome.Le 8 novembre 2011 à 12:07 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

MovieBob Reviews BLADE RUNNER 2049

first_img MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Is Blade Runner 2049 good?Yes.Is it as good as the orig- y’know what? forget I almost asked that.Smart move.But it’s pretty good in its own right, yes?Absolutely. I don’t know that it’s a “masterpiece” on par with the first one, but it’s an entirely solid science fiction feature in its own right with a lot of intriguing ideas at its core, a terrific musical score, confident direction from Denis Villeneuve and pretty good performances across the board.What’s the story this time – no spoilers, please?It’s 2049 and, after all that dirty business from the original film, replicants (artificial humans) are back in fashion as slave labor in the form of new, apparently more obedient models invented by Jared Leto’s creepy tech CEO. But some of those unpredictable Nexus 6 rogues are still skulking around, so Blade Runners (cops, sometimes replicants themselves, trained to sort out real from unreal humans) like Ryan Gosling’s “K” are still tasked to hunt them down. When his latest investigation unearths evidence that a replicant may have achieved something that’s supposed to be impossible for their “species,” he becomes embroiled in a conspiracy to either cover-up or exploit this revelation that may be connected to the events (and main characters) of the first film.That sounds surprisingly straightforward.Indeed. Everyone expected director Denis Villenueve to faithfully recreate and even expand the now-famous techno-dystopian atmosphere of the original. But it’s surprising to realize the film is also trying to mimic the text-vs-subtext structure of the first one, too. Once again, we’ve got a fairly standard sci-fi detective story that precedes on reliable, even “predictable” beats that mostly adds up to a skeleton connecting visually-imaginative setpieces. There are also largely self-contained narrative vignettes where characters explore the nature of their existence, memory, identity and what it means to be (or not be) human. But it IS a little different this time in some respects, also.How is it different?In the original, the bigger mysteries and secrets were mostly in the background or under the surface of most scenes – to the extent that many audiences didn’t realize what they’d seen being explored until they thought about certain moments or lines of dialogue much later. In this one, the characters are much more upfront and self-aware about their introspection and the issues of technology-altered day-to-day life that they grapple with. Basically, the main plot stops every few scenes so that an abbreviated episode of Black Mirror can play out – which is okay, because these sequences are all pretty interesting and well-performed.Examples?Well, a few would qualify as significant spoilers. But probably the most interesting is a series of extended scenes focused on Gosling’s character’s… “unusual” romance with an artificially-intelligent personal-assistant hologram played by Ana de Armas. In many ways, she’s the most “human-seeming” character in the film, which is probably an intentional bit of subversive humor.That sounds a little familiar…Yeah, the whole relationship sort-of plays out like someone watched the movie Her and said: “That could stand to be more uncomfortable.”What doesn’t work?Some of the main narrative, once the “big reveals” start coming in. The problem with trying to mimic the simple/straightforward detective story format of the original is that if you try to then do swerves and big reveals people are either going to see a lot of them coming OR end up feeling like whatever you’re building up to isn’t quite worth all the misdirection. I don’t know that it gets all the way to that, but I definitely went home feeling the denouement was more “acceptable” than edifying.But you still recommend it?I do. As I said, it’s a gorgeous looking film. The score is good, the acting is solid across the board (with de Armas and Sylvia Hoeks as, essentially, Rachel from the first if she was also a Terminator as the standouts) and Robin Wright forcing a good character out of a mostly expository role. Despite the running time and the modestly underwhelming payoff, the mood and atmosphere are a real pleasure to sink into and – while it’s surprisingly lighter on the action business than the first one was – when we finally get around to a big climactic fight scene it’s quite satisfying.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Camas adds parking in crowded downtown

first_imgDowntown Camas added some much-needed additional parking starting this week thanks to a new lease between the city and Georgia-Pacific.The city leased space for about 40 spots from the mill, the city announced Monday. The free parking spots will be in the lot east of Northeast Adams Street and north of Northeast Sixth Avenue.“Downtown parking is such a problem,” City Administrator Pete Capell said. “That was one of our primary desires, to help with some parking. They proposed this one, and we jumped on it.”The city will lease the lot from Georgia-Pacific. The lease is a year-to-year one, with the city covering property taxes for the lot, which Capell said will be around $3,000 a year.The lot has been mostly empty in recent years and is primarily used for parking and equipment by contractors who come to do maintenance work during the mill’s yearly shutdown, Capell said. The lot will still be used by contractors while they’re on-site for maintenance work.The lease agreement is one of what is expected to be multiple new partnerships between the city and the mill.Georgia-Pacific announced in November that it was going to shut down several operations at the Camas mill and cut up to 300 jobs, leaving between 120 and 140 employees. The layoffs are starting this month.last_img read more

Indian IT giant TCS faces law suit in US over antiAmerican bias

first_imgLogos of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) are displayed at the venue of the annual general meeting of the software services provider in Mumbai, June 29, 2012.ReutersIndia’s largest IT services exporter Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) is facing legal trial in the US over allegations of discrimination against American workers, Bloomberg reported.A federal judge in Oakland, rejected the IT major’s plea to dismiss the lawsuit filed in 2015, accusing the company of violating anti-discrimination laws by favouring South Asians.Further the judge has also expanded the case into a class action on behalf of American workers who lost their jobs at TCS offices in the US because they were not assigned any project, reported the agency.Another Indian IT firm and TCS rival is also facing a similar lawsuit in Milwaukee. Both the IT firms came under pressure from Trump administration to hire more American locals.Following this, earlier in May, Infosys announced plans to hire 10,000 US workers over the next two years and open four technology centres in the US, starting with Indiana.The lawsuit against TCS was filed by an IT worker named Brian Buchanan, who claimed he was subjected to “substantial anti-American sentiment” within the company and was ultimately terminated within 20 months despite having almost 20 years of experience in the field, according the report.Buchanan further claimed that he was among 400 people terminated, but said he was asked to stay on for a few months to train the Indian TCS employees who were replacing him.However, TCS argued that Buchanan’s experience does not prove he was a victim of bias. He has “no idea” whether the application process was discriminatory because he did not attend any of the town hall meetings he was invited to during the Edison transition to learn about open positions with TCS and how to apply for them—and he did not apply for a specific job, the company said in a court filing.last_img read more

Kyrie Irving is Scottie PippenKyrie Irving got his wish to be freed from the shadow of LeBron James, and is now “the man” in Boston. He’s quickly finding out that life as a #1 comes with an entire new set of challenges than those of a #2. It’s still early in the year, but he’s struggling to adjust.Without the defensive focus on James, Irving has started the season by shooting just 37%. Sure, Gordon Hayward going down for the year is a tough blow, but #1’s have the responsibility to keep the train rolling, even if their supporting cast misses games. James has done it throughout his career, including when Irving missed extended periods of time.Irving also has to deal with the pressure of dealing with the media as the first interview after the game, and other responsibilities that are only shouldered by the face of the franchise. MJ and LeBron are hardwired to do it. Some aren’t.Scottie Pippen was one of the all-time best #2’s in NBA, but when MJ retired he wasn’t a great #1. So far, like Pippen, Irving is struggling to assume the role on and off the court.  He couldn’t wait to leave James, but he’ll never have it that good again. Top coaches should be lining up for the Colts’ job  The Colts are awful, and Chuck Pagano might not make it to the end of the season. Even though Indy is terrible this year, Colin thinks it will be an incredibly attractive job once the offseason rolls around..He believes the Colts job is an extremely attractive destination because new GM Chris Ballard gets it, and is slowly untangling the disaster that Ryan Grigson created. Whoever gets the job will inherit a franchise quarterback in Andrew Luck, who should be fully healthy for the first time in several years; a top pick to trade for more picks to build their team; and the lowest possible entry point in terms of expectations.Indy has a lot to sell, even to the biggest of the big name coaching candidates. They should go hard after a big name, including Jim Harbaugh.last_img read more
