Poll finds many in U.S. lack knowledge about Ebola and its transmission

first_imgAlthough the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports no known cases of Ebola transmission in the United States, a Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH)/SSRS poll released August 21, 2014 shows that four-in-ten (39 percent) adults in the U.S. are concerned that there will be a large outbreak in the U.S., and a quarter (26 percent) are concerned that they or someone in their immediate family may get sick with Ebola over the next year.The nationally representative poll of 1,025 adults was conducted August 13-17, 2014 by researchers at HSPH and SSRS, an independent research company. The margin of error for total respondents is +/- 3.6 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a severe, often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates, such as monkeys, gorillas and chimpanzees. Four countries have reported infections: Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. Officials report 1,350 have died as of August 21, 2014 and over 2,473 people have been infected since March 2014.

Bacow sits down with lawmakers

first_img A plea to support DACA The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news. In testimony before Congress, Harvard graduate, chosen for a Rhodes, worries about being able to return to U.S. afterward Harvard President Larry Bacow traveled to the nation’s capital this week to meet with members of Congress to discuss a range of University priorities and concerns, including the uncertainties federal immigration policy has created for faculty and students at Harvard and at universities across the nation. In a related move, Bacow also sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan last week calling on them to expedite the visa and immigration process for foreign students and researchers.Bacow’s visit comes almost exactly a year after his first visit to Washington, D.C., as Harvard’s 29th president. His itinerary on this trip included meetings with Sen. Ted Cruz, J.D. ’95 (R-Texas); Sen. Pat Toomey ’84 (R-Pa.); Senate Armed Services Ranking Member Jack Reed, M.P.P. ’73, J.D. ’82 (D-R.I.); Sen. Dan Sullivan ’87 (R-Alaska); Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.); House Appropriations Chair Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.); Rep. Lori Trahan (D-Mass.); and House Ways and Means Chair Richard Neal (D-Mass.).In his conversations with lawmakers Bacow discussed Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which gives limited-term protection from deportation to emigrants from countries embroiled in armed conflict or dealing with natural disaster; the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a policy that protects from deportation immigrants brought to the U.S. as children; the newly mandated federal endowment tax, a 2017 law calling for an excise tax of 1.4 percent on investment income at private colleges and universities with at least 500 tuition-paying students and endowments worth at least $500,000 per student; and federal funding for research universities.In his letter, Bacow urged Pompeo and McAleenan to find ways to make the process of receiving student and academic visas speedier and more predictable. Visa delays, wrote Bacow, “are making these scholars’ attendance and engagement in the university unpredictable and anxiety-ridden. Students report difficulties getting initial visas — from delays to denials. Scholars have experienced postponements and disruptions for what have previously been routine immigration processes such as family visas, renewal of status, or clearance for international travel,” hindering their work and, in some instances, their medical residencies.Bacow also noted that increased scrutiny around a few countries has contributed to heightened student and faculty anxiety. “Academic science is open and collaborative,” his letter continued. “While we support appropriate measures to safeguard valuable intellectual property, national defense, and sensitive, emerging technologies, singling out one country and its citizens is incompatible with the culture and mission of higher education and our national ideals.”He reminded them that the work done at Harvard and other universities has driven “innovation that has helped shape the economy, fostered new industries, and improved health and well-being both in the United States and around the world.”Bacow’s recent letter echoes one he sent to Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in March calling for the chamber’s party leaders to find a solution that would enable a path toward citizenship for DACA recipients, and for the lawmakers to act to protect individuals with TPS.Bacow’s meetings followed weekend raids carried out by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents that targeted undocumented immigrants. While not as extensive as many had feared, the raids signaled the White House’s willingness to crack down on immigration amid calls from lawmakers for a more comprehensive approach to immigration reform. The meetings also came after the recent release of Treasury Department guidelines for the tax on private colleges and universities.,As part of his trip, Bacow met with students and alumni and continued to make the case for public service. On Monday night he attended a reception celebrating civic work, hosted by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics (IOP) and including participants in the Summer in Washington Program, which connects Harvard undergraduates with those working in politics and public service in D.C. This summer 225 IOP interns are working in 30 states and nine countries.“The Institute of Politics underscores the reason that Harvard exists,” Bacow told the group. “I think this is a responsibility which we all bear, and that the world has never needed committed, active, engaged citizens more than now. I would suggest that this is not a time for good people to be sitting on the sidelines. This is a time in which good people need to roll up their sleeves and get involved.”,In his remarks at last year’s IOP D.C. event, Bacow signaled he would be an advocate for public service during his presidency, and he reiterated those sentiments in his inaugural address last fall, saying he would create opportunities “so we can guarantee every undergraduate who wants one a public-service internship of some kind — an opportunity to see the world more expansively, and to discover their own powers to repair that world.”This year, in response to Bacow’s call, the IOP increased its director’s summer intern program by 25 percent and plans to expand it further in 2020.Harvard also recently launched the Service Starts with Summer Program, a new initiative sponsored by Harvard College and the Phillips Brooks House Association that offers incoming first-years the opportunity to pursue service projects during the summer months. This year more than 70 students from the U.S. and abroad are taking part in projects ranging from working at food banks to helping refugees to protecting the environment.

El Salvadoran sisters attending online classes up a tree

first_imgIt’s especially hard to get a strong phone signal to access the internet in the El Tigre canton, near the border with Guatemala, where the Matilde and Marlene Pimentel live.”For most of us living in rural areas it’s difficult (to study.) There’s no (internet) connection,” Matilde, 22, who’s studying mathematics in college, told AFP.She’s joined on her daily escapade by 19-year-old Marlene, who is studying statistics.The seventh and eighth of 10 children, these ladies are aiming to be the first members of their family to graduate from the state University of El Salvador. Read also: Remote learning hampered by lack of student-teacher interaction, KPAI survey finds’Positive story’ Their touching story came to light when police officer Castro Ruiz stumbled across Matilde “in the middle of nowhere” while patrolling the El Tigre mountain.Finding the young woman on a path leading to a lush olive tree, “my first impression was that something had happened to her,” Ruiz told AFP.When he asked her what had happened, her reply stunned him: “I just want to study.”Touched by such a “positive story,” the officer took a photo and published it on Facebook, where it went viral.To reach the peak of the mountain in the middle of the rainy season, the sisters walk a kilometer along a slippery path while avoiding snakes hiding in the undergrowth.They tackle the journey weighed down by a foldable table and chairs, while trying to keep the rain off their heads with an umbrella.”This is the only way to get a little bit of a signal, and sometimes even here it doesn’t work,” Marlene told AFP, speaking from her perch in the olive tree. She admits to being afraid of falling out of the tree, and scared of the “venemous animals” lurking in the grass in this lush area.When not studying, the sisters sell bread at the weekend to help out their father, who grows sweetcorn, beans and squash.Fending off mosquitos Erick Palacios, a university student in Ojo de Agua, around 20 kilometers west of the capital San Salvador, has to climb a hill strewn with rocks and waste to access the internet.”I came here because I realized it was clear … it gave me a signal,” said the 20-year-old, who is studying to get a degree in communications at the private Jose Matias Delgado university.Perched on three bricks and covered by an umbrella, Palacios admits that taking classes in this way is “uncomfortable” because of the mosquitos he must fend off.He’s decided to visit other students in Ojo de Agua to collect signatures to present to internet providers so they can see how many “people are interested in a good service.”El Salvador is divided almost in half lengthwise by volcanoes that disrupt mobile phone signals.According to Internet World Status, almost 60 percent of El Salvador’s 6.6 million resident use the internet.The coronavirus pandemic has left 463 million children worldwide unable to attend online classes, a UNICEF report out Wednesday said. Two sisters in western El Salvador are taking their love of learning to great heights: every day they climb a mountain, then scramble up an olive tree to get a signal to access their online college lessons.Thousands of El Salvadorans living in rural areas have faced the same juggling act since March, when authorities closed schools and universities to halt the spread of the novel coronavirus.center_img Topics :last_img read more

After quick start, offensive complacency ruins Orange

first_imgSEATTLE — Two drives, two scores. Now breathe. After scoring on its first two possessions and protecting a narrow 10-0 lead early on the road, the Syracuse offense began to exhale. All that talk of being a 13-point underdog was just nonsense. But instead of going for the jugular, the Orange took its foot off the gas. The lead was comfortable, so it seemed.  Complacency set in. All of a sudden, SU’s bubble began to burst. And just like that, the game’s momentum began to shift, leading to an eventual 41-20 Washington win on Saturday. ‘We made a lot of mistakes,’ SU running back Delone Carter said. ‘And I feel like we got comfortable, and that’s when the mistakes started to come.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text It was after those two drives, and two scores, that Carter said the complacency set in. ‘When we saw the 10 up on the board,’ Carter said. Every player knew the statistics coming in. SU was just 1-11-1 on the West Coast since 1964. The Huskies were 23-2 at home against East Coast teams since 1970. Those numbers didn’t lie. Yet, despite jumping out to an early lead, SU failed to take advantage of an opportunity to go for the kill early. Minor mistakes turned into a tidal wave of momentum that left the Orange as just another statistic. Just another West Coast loss to add to the numbers. ‘We knew our backs were against the wall,’ said Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant, who finished the game with four tackles. ‘The sense of urgency was there.’ Once the Washington offense got on the board late in the first quarter, Trufant and the Husky defense started to rally. The Washington defense had heard all week how good SU’s defense was, Trufant said. After allowing a quick 10 points, the group got the wake-up call it needed. After Washington quarterback Jake Locker marched the Huskies on an 11-play, 49-yard scoring drive, the Husky defense, huddled together on the sidelines, figured this was the time to pounce. ‘I just wanted us to settle down,’ UW head coach Steve Sarkisian said. ‘Once we settled down, I knew we would be OK. I was proud of our guys for not panicking.’ From that point on, Washington didn’t allow an Orange drive that lasted more than three and a half minutes. On the other side, Locker and the Huskies offense grinded out drive after drive, keeping the SU defense on the field for long stretches. Meanwhile, the UW defense stayed well rested. The results were evident. After allowing SU to score on its first two drives, Washington only allowed points on two of the Orange’s remaining 13 drives. ‘Once we got that first score,’ said UW receiver Jermaine Kearse, who tied a single-game program record with three touchdown catches, ‘we knew our defense wasn’t going to let (Syracuse) score again. That was it.’ The Orange had its opportunities to pull the game within reach, but it couldn’t capitalize. For the second straight week, turnovers prevented SU’s offense from maximizing its full potential. Against the Huskies Saturday, dropped passes also contributed. And each time SU failed to turn drives into points, the Husky offense took advantage of the energy created by its defense. ‘Our offense and our defense, they just feed off each other,’ Trufant said. ‘Once we saw our guys start scoring, we knew we needed to do our part. We knew they couldn’t do it by themselves.’ As Syracuse became unraveled, the sea of purple and gold continued to fuel the fire. Eventually, there was little SU could do to distinguish it. By the time all was said and done, UW had turned an early 10-point deficit into a 21-point victory. And it all came back to that swing of momentum. ‘Syracuse came out strong,’ Kearse said. ‘But we are the ones who finished.’ [email protected]   Published on September 12, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
