Reid Hospital Adds Ebola Advisory Group

first_imgReid Hospital implemented an “Ebola Technical Advisory Team.”RICHMOND, Ind. — The growing national attention and concern about the Ebola virus has been a topic and focus at Reid Hospital for several weeks, hospital officials said.And now the team has implemented an “Ebola Technical Advisory Group” as an additional precaution.“Though we have been watching and discussing the Ebola concerns for quite a while, we recently implemented the internal advisory group, which is making sure our front-line staff is well-versed on how to handle any suspected cases of this or any other infectious disease,” said Dr. Tom Huth, Reid Vice President/Medical Affairs.Dr. Huth noted that health officials believe the risk of Ebola reaching the area is low, “but we are in the business of being prepared for the unexpected – so we are taking precautions and planning steps.”As national concerns grew, the advisory group was formed to address Ebola worries and ramp up education about the disease. Representatives include physicians from various areas, Reid safety experts, infection control, emergency department and other key staff members, Huth said.Ebola is not transmitted through the air, but only through direct contact with bodily fluids, making it less contagious than some infections. “All hospitals have long had in place proper procedures for dealing with an illness transmitted through bodily fluids,” he said.last_img read more

Un De Sceaux team take prudent approach to Tingle defection

first_img After tipping up on his chasing debut at Thurles last season, he carried everything else before him, with scintillating displays at Cheltenham and Punchestown. A recent racecourse gallop after racing at Thurles left connections purring, but he has been quiet at home the last couple of days, forcing trainer Willie Mullins to pull the plug. Connections of Un De Sceaux took a philosophical view to their star chaser being ruled out of his intended return to action in the Betfair Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown on Saturday. Part-owner Colm O’Connell said: “Obviously it’s disappointing news, but we’ve got to do what is right by the horse and Willie felt he just hadn’t been himself. “He’ll hopefully go for the Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas now. “After that, there’s the Clarence House at Ascot or the Tied Cottage at Punchestown, I suppose. “He just hasn’t been sparkling these last couple of days, apparently, and for a horse who’s only defeat came when he fell w e didn’t want to risk it if he wasn’t 100 per cent.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News Rishabh Pant creates new wicketkeeping record in Adelaide Test vs Australia

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Rishabh Pant has had a great time in the Adelaide Tests. His aggressive batting in both innings, although not pleasing to the eye, signaled the India cricket team’s intent that they wanted to dominate the hosts in their own backyard. His sledges behind the wicket, notably to Usman Khawaja when he said, “Not everyone is like Pujara here”. On the final day, Pat Cummins was on the receiving end when Pant sledged him from behind by saying, “Come on Patty, we need some sixes now”. His stump mic compilation has taken Twitter by storm but on the field, he created a record and entered a prestigious list among wicketkeepers.When Tim Paine top-edged a pull shot from Jasprit Bumrah, Pant ran to his left and took a smart catch. However, he created history when he caught took the catch of Mitchell Starc to become the first Indian keeper to take 11 catches. The previous record by an Indian wicketkeeper was 10 catches in a Test match by Wriddhiman Saha. The Bengal keeper, who is not in the Australia series due to a shoulder injury, achieved this feat during the Johannesburg Test against South Africa in January. Pant is the third keeper after AB de Villiers and Jack Russell of England to have taken 11 catches.

English FA to appoint more women to the board

first_img(REUTERS) – The English FA will increase the number of women on its board to three by 2018 as part of a range of proposed reforms to the world’s oldest soccer federation, it said yesterday.Only one woman, Heather Rabbatts, currently sits on the board.The reforms included reducing the board from 12 members to 10 and introducing limits so that nobody serves more than three terms of three years.The FA said it also planned to add 11 new members to the FA Council “to ensure it better reflects the inclusive and diverse nature of English football”.FA chairman Greg Clarke said last month he would step down if the government did not support his proposals to reform the under-fire governing body.Sports Minister Tracey Crouch wants the FA, whose 120-member Council has been accused of being antiquated and resistant to change, to be more transparent and diverse.“I am delighted that the FA board is able to unanimously recommend this strong package of reforms,” said Clarke in a statement.“They represent huge progress and, if approved following consultation, will ensure that the FA is meeting the requirements of UK sport governance best practice.The FA board has conducted a review of its corporate governance over the past six months as it seeks to serve better the long-term interests of the English game.It said a special meeting of the FA Council will be convened on March 21 to debate the recommendations, with a formal vote scheduled for April 3. If majority approved, they will be voted on by shareholders at an annual general meeting on May 18.last_img read more

ICC rules out complacency on World Cup security after New Zealand shootings

first_imgWELLINGTON (Reuters) – There is no question of being complacent with security at this year’s World Cup following a mass shooting at two Christchurch mosques last week, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has said.Members of the Bangladesh cricket team narrowly avoided being caught up in the shooting, which killed 50 people, by a suspected white supremacist last Friday.Their third Test against New Zealand that had been scheduled to start on Saturday at nearby Hagley Oval was subsequently cancelled and it also prompted calls from Asian cricket officials and politicians to step up security for touring teams.ICC chief executive David Richardson said security was always an issue for his organisation and ensuring the May 30-July 14 World Cup in England and Wales was safe would be a priority.“It has always been the case that we’ve had to make sure that we keep security absolutely priority, not only for the players but also for the visiting media, fans, spectators and everyone who attends the event,” Richardson was quoted as saying by cricket website Cricinfo.“Something happening in New Zealand probably took a lot of people by surprise and it emphasised the need not to be complacent, especially going into the World Cup.“I know the work done already by the security director together with all the security agencies in the UK, they are leaving no stone unturned, and if the threat level should rise in any way we will (further upgrade) the plans in place.”Cricket teams have previously abandoned tours because of security fears but most had been in South Asia, including Bangladesh which Australia decided against touring in 2015.Sri Lanka’s team bus was attacked by gunmen in Lahore during their tour of Pakistan in 2009. Six members of the team were wounded, while six security personnel and two civilians were killed.Pakistan still host nearly all of their international matches in the United Arab Emirates due to ongoing security concerns.New Zealand abandoned their 1987 tour of Sri Lanka following a bombing near their hotel in Colombo in which more than 100 people were killed.They also abandoned a tour of Pakistan in May 2002 following a suicide bombing outside their hotel in Karachi.last_img read more

MLAX : TENFOLD: Ten different players score as Syracuse rolls past Hobart

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on April 19, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img T.W. Johnson didn’t see any difference Tuesday from the previous six times he’s coached against Syracuse.The Hobart head coach saw Jeremy Thompson and Josh Amidon work together in a two-on-one that ended with an Amidon laser shot into the top left corner for the first goal of the game. From the start, he saw a relentless Orange attack throughout the game that was both balanced and efficient.Syracuse’s offense has not been the team’s strongpoint this season. But while the offensive dominance may have been new to this SU team, Johnson was used to seeing it from the Orange.‘I’ve played them for seven years now, and to be honest, it’s the same every year,’ he said. ‘They’ve got talented guys. They have a lot of them. They have the ability to go on runs at any point during the game.’Ten different players scored for No. 4 SU (11-1, 3-0 Big East) in its 13-7 win over the Statesmen (5-7) Tuesday in the Carrier Dome, keeping the Kraus-Simmons trophy in Syracuse for the fifth straight season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange offense played perhaps its most consistent game of the season in front of 4,340 fans, not relying on one short burst but finding ways to score throughout the game. And that brought back the memories of dangerous, high-flying SU attacks from recent years.‘I think we’ve tried to play like that all year long,’ Syracuse head coach John Desko said. ‘We don’t rely on just one player to get it done for us offensively. … We believe in that. It’s team play.’All year long, the Orange offense has struggled. SU has failed to reach double digits in five of its 12 games. Those include two five-goal performances and SU’s only loss when it scored six goals against Cornell.Even when Syracuse has reached double figures, the team has gone quarters at a time floundering on the offensive end while opponents forge comebacks.This time, Hobart tried to shut down Syracuse’s offense at first with a 1-3-2 zone, a new defensive wrinkle the Orange had not yet seen this year. But Thompson and Amidon quickly solved that defense.The two senior midfielders stood 15 yards away from the goal on opposite hash marks. Thompson got possession and forced the single Hobart defender to slide over to him. Thompson quickly flipped the ball over to Amidon on the right hash, and Amidon did the rest for the 1-0 lead.‘I think we executed much better,’ Desko said. ‘We ran the offenses. The guys really appeared to understand what we were trying to accomplish. This is the time of year where you like to see those kinds of things.’Hobart managed to stay with the Orange through the first quarter, as SU only held a 3-2 lead after 15 minutes. But SU took over in the second.Jovan Miller ended a personal three-game scoring drought with a running shot from the right side on SU’s first possession of the period. Junior midfielder Bobby Eilers continued his strong showing in recent games with a goal four minutes later.Kevin Drew then got into the mix on a transition goal. He was left unguarded in the middle of the field, and attack JoJo Marasco found him cutting to the net.‘I’ve just been staying out a little more, get some offense going a little bit,’ said Drew, who had a career-high two goals in the game. ‘We’ve been working on fastbreaks every day in practice, so we’re just working on that.’Syracuse’s leading scorer Stephen Keogh capped off that second-quarter run by scooping up a rebound on the crease and finishing with a putback a minute after Drew’s first score. That put the lead at 7-2, and Hobart would never close the margin to less than three goals throughout the game.The key for SU’s offense Tuesday was that mix of the primary and secondary scorers. Syracuse got its expected contributions from Keogh, Amidon, Thompson and Marasco, all of whom had at least two points in the game.But the additional scoring from Eilers, Drew, Pete Coleman and defender Matt Harris turned an average offensive performance into one of SU’s better scoring games this year.‘I think we executed much better,’ Desko said. ‘We ran the offenses. The guys really appeared to understand what we were trying to accomplish. This is the time of year where you really want to see those kinds of things.’zjbrown@syr.edulast_img read more

Maddi finds his match at Wisconsin

first_imgDefensive tackle Ethan Hemer has helped anchor a Wisconsin defensive line surrendering just 114 rushing yards per game, but the bruising Le’Veon Bell presents a fresh challenge.[/media-credit]How things can change in the course of four years.For Wisconsin men’s soccer forward Jerry Maddi, coming out of high school just four years ago, he never would have guessed he would end up playing for the Badgers.Throughout high school, Maddi played in one of the toughest soccer regions in the country and excelled in it too.While playing his high school soccer at Naperville Central High School, just west of Chicago, with fellow UW soccer player Chris Prince, the team was ranked No. 1 in the nation for a short period during his senior year. After completing his 36th and final game in his varsity career for NCHS, Maddi had compiled a massive 29 goals and 22 assists – numbers that were only good enough for him finish in the top three players in the school’s history.“We had a really good senior class; Chris had a couple of good players in his class as well, and below him they had a player at Northwestern,” Maddi said. “So we had a lot of good talent and not just at our high school but in the area. … I think a lot of what got me where I am today is playing at that high level in high school.”In high school, Maddi committed to Michigan State, but when that didn’t work out, he instead decided to attend Eastern Illinois University.At Eastern Illinois, Maddi would go on to play in all 17 games his freshman season, starting 16 of them, scoring two goals and earning three assists. His sophomore year, Maddi went on to start all 17 games.Still, although he credited Eastern Illinois with helping further develop him as a player, Maddi said he still always looked back at schools like Michigan State and knew it was where he wanted to be. “When I committed to Michigan State, I kind of set myself at the expectation where I wanted to play at a high level in the Big Ten,” Maddi said.So in 2010, when former high school teammate and then UW freshman Prince started telling head coach John Trask about Maddi, Trask’s interest was piqued, and one year later Maddi would transfer to play at Wisconsin for his junior season.“When it was made clear to us he was wanting to move into a better environment, or a bigger environment, we knew we had a chance to get him,” Trask said. “He has been great.”Over the years, transfers have played a big role on many of Trask’s teams. During the 2011 season, two transfers – Tomislav Zadro from Illinois Central College and Josh Thiermann from Notre Dame – led the team in scoring with 10 of the team’s 25 goals.While Maddi didn’t have quite the same statistics to show as the other two transfers coming into his senior year at UW – he recorded his first goal in a cardinal and white uniform Sept. 29 of this season – Trask said Maddi’s willingness to do whatever it takes for the team has made him an invaluable member of this Badger team.“He is always positive. He is always ready to train; he is always ready to play,” Trask said. “He is a team guy. It’s never about him; it’s always about what’s good for the team.“If we asked him to play goalkeeper, he would put on the gloves and go back there and be our goalkeeper. He’s a guy that you want in your program.”Recently though, Trask’s confidence in his senior forward has been rewarded with results.Both of Maddi’s goals this season have come in vital wins for a UW team that has struggled to find its identity. With Prince playing in the midfield for much of the season, the Badgers have lacked a forward capable of putting the ball in the back of the net. Despite his own personal success in recent weeks, Maddi’s demeanor is not that of the typical cocky forward. Instead, when asked about his recent run of form, he immediately directed the attention of his own accomplishments back on the team goals.“It’s more important that when I’m scoring, we’re getting wins,” Maddi said. “If I were to have zero points and zero goals and we would get more wins I would trade [for] that.”Still, the most important role Maddi has played for the team this year has been that of mentor. Maddi is one of only two seniors on the 2012 team – along with defender Kyle McCrudden – making him an important resource for some of the younger players as they learn what it means to be collegiate student-athletes.For Maddi, it is a role he relishes, especially as he hopes to one day get involved in coaching of some kind after he graduates in May 2014.“I think that something working with the university [could be in my future],” Maddi said. “Maybe as a strength coach or coaching [in general] is something that, as of now, I am looking forward to doing after [school].”last_img read more
