Brazil donates 10,000 units of MMR Vaccine to Guyana

first_imgBrazilian Ambassador to Guyana, Lineu Pupo de Paula handed over a quantity of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) Vaccine to the Public Health Ministry on behalf of his government on Tuesday.Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence receiving a portion of the MMR vaccines from Brazilian Ambassador to Guyana, Lineu Pupo de Paula in the presence of Director of Family Healthcare Services in the Ministry, Dr Ertenesia HamiltonReceiving the donation were Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence; Director of Family Healthcare Services, Dr Ertenesia Hamilton and Focal Point for Adolescent Health, Dr Oneka Scott.A total of 10,000 units were received to aid in the continued fight against the MMR viruses. The Brazilian Ambassador noted, “This is the second donation that Brazil is offering for the Ministry of Health this year.”Earlier in 2017, Brazil and PAHO/WHO donated drugs to help counteract Leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease found in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Ambassador Pupo de Paula said, “It is in our interest to help to vaccinate children and everybody…This just shows how good the relationship between the two countries is going.”According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), Minister Lawrence welcomed the Brazilian Government’s gesture, noting that the vaccines acquired would go directly towards ‘cross border vaccination activities’.“We do have a lot of persons traversing through Guyana, whether they are coming here to find work or to invest or whether they are using here as a ‘jump off’ point to some other neighbouring country,” the Minister explained.She alluded to the fact that there were outbreaks of the MMR viruses in neighbouring countries. However, she noted that through efforts by these countries and Pan American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO), initiatives were put in place to prevent the spread of such viruses.Although these outbreaks did not affect Guyana in any significant way, Minister Lawrence emphasised that the vaccines acquired would “ensure that we have a stockpile of vaccines…We have a vaccination programme in Guyana, we are catering for that through our budget and through some of our partners”.Further, she added, “because of the high incidence of persons going back and forth — Brazilians, Surinamese, Venezuelans and so on, this boost will help us to take off that excess and ensure that we always have, to be able to help our sisters and brothers from the neighbouring states.”The adult population will be primarily targeted. Public Health Ministry Director of the Family HealthCare Services, Dr Ertenesia Hamilton detailed, “Some of our adults are still at risk because they would have not benefited .… So this donation will be aiding in improving the immunisation of our adult population, and those persons, who would have not been caught in the normal immunisation programmes.”More specifically, it was further explained that the adult population in Regions One, Two, Seven, Eight and Nine (regions sharing borders with Venezuela and Brazil) would be the first to access vaccines from this donation. “Also, we try to immunise all of our officers who are first responders such as Port Health Officers, our Immigration Officers, our Police and our soldiers,” Dr Hamilton stated.last_img read more

Maytag plant closure ends century of appliance making

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.A Maytag worker for six years, she was laid off in 2003 when the company was struggling to compete and was cutting costs and jobs. Last year, she was called back again by Whirlpool to help keep production on track until the final shutdown this week. During the three-year layoff, she earned a two-year degree in interior design and fashion. She, her husband, a truck driver for a construction company, and daughter learned to live leaner. She’s glad to be working when the final shutdown occurs, she said. “When somebody dies and you don’t see the body. How do you know they’re gone? Not being in there when they close the doors, you don’t have closure that you get this way,” she said. Factory workers develop close friendships, many co-workers become like family, she said. “It’s definitely a death of sorts. A death to a lot of people’s lifestyle … How can the people that allowed this to happen live with themselves?” she said. Many workers remaining have never worked anywhere else, and a large number of them have just a high school education. Finding a job that pays $30,000 to $40,000 with good benefits will be tough. Company officials said about 100 workers will stay in the factory for a little while longer to oversee the shutdown. A block from the town square, the former Maytag headquarters has 55 people left out of the 900 that once ran the nation’s third largest appliance manufacturer. Those who remain are responsible for the closure, a job expected to end in December. At its peak, Maytag had 4,000 workers in Newton, a town of 16,000 people 30 miles east of Des Moines. The closing is part of a larger plan to consolidate Maytag’s headquarters with Whirlpool’s in Benton Harbor, Mich., and shutter plants in Iowa, Illinois and Arkansas. It calls for cutting 4,500 jobs and chopping about $400million in operating costs. The machines once made by Maytag will be redesigned to fit on a Whirlpool chassis and built by workers in Mexico and a nonunion factory in Clyde, Ohio, where they earn significantly less than the union-represented workers in Newton. Whirlpool spokesman Jeff Noel said Whirlpool had little choice but to take some major steps to fix the broken Maytag business. That meant eliminating higher-cost factories and jobs. A mile north of the former Maytag headquarters is Newton Union Cemetery. There, in a family mausoleum, lies founder Fred Maytag. The washing machines will no longer be made here, but the Maytag legacy remains deeply rooted in Newton. Near the employee entrance a plaque in the shape of a cemetery headstone hangs on the fence that says “R.I.P.” A handwritten message is scrawled on the bottom: “We love you all.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEWTON, Iowa The last washers and dryers were rolling off Maytag assembly lines here Thursday and the 550 workers who built them were preparing to leave the 2 million-square-foot factory for the last time, ending a century of appliance manufacturing in Newton under the iconic brand name. For many workers, it’s a sad parting with a company that has provided for their families over generations. Worries had mounted since May 10, 2006, the day officials at Whirlpool Corp., which bought Maytag last year, unveiled plans to close the Maytag corporate headquarters and the local factory that made washers and dryers, leaving about 1,800 local workers to find other jobs. One of the workers leaving Thursday was Tootie Samson, 47, of Baxter. last_img read more

Athletic Bilbao out to examine Lopetegui’s Real project

first_img Tags: Spanish La Ligatop Julen Lopetegui’s seamless start to life as Real Madrid manager comes under scrutiny when his early season pacesetters travel to the intimidating Estadio San Mames to battle Eduardo Berrizo’s Athletic Bilbao on Saturday night.The hosts won the last two of their nine Primera Liga titles in 1983 and 1984, the later under Javier Clemente but are capable of rattling any visitors.Los Blancos are coping well with the summer departure of club record goal scorer Cristiano Ronaldo. Lopetegui has largely chosen to stick with the starting lineup that started last season’s Champions League final victory over Liverpool in Kiev, with Marco Asensio promoted to take Ronaldo’s place in a front three along with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.Asensio has vindicated his slot with a string of compelling performances. A rare product of the Madrid academy, he enhanced his burgeoning reputation by starring for Spain’s national team in a 6-0 hammering of World Cup finalists Croatia in a Uefa Nations League match on Tuesday.Five Real Madrid players – Nacho, Sergio Ramos, Isco, Asensio and Dani Carvajlal started both La Roja matches as Luis Enrique begun his tenure as Spain boss. A forthcoming midweek Champions League fixture with AS Roma notwithstanding, all five are expected to start in the Basque country as Real protect their one hundred percent record.Meanwhile, Ernesto Valverde’s defending champions Barcelona only trail Real Madrid on goal difference. The Blagruana also visit the Basque country Saturday night and must negotiate a potential banana peel at Real Sociedad’s Estadio Anoeta.An open game is anticipated as Valverde has abandoned the 4-4-2 formation that won his last season’s double in favour of a more porous 4-3-3.Spain’s two other Champions League representatives – Valencia and Atletico Madrid, are also in action on Saturday. Valencia welcome a rejuvenated Real Betis to the Mestalla whereas Atletico Madrid host lowly Eibar at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.Liga Santander action commences Friday evening with a slugfest between newly promoted clubs Huesca and Rayo Vallecano.

South Africa top of test cricket world

first_imgHis 121 in the second innings at Lords, the highest score in the match, was crucial to South Africa’s 51-run victory. “I think we were able to post totals in this series,” Smith said. “We were able to build partnerships and get scores on the board that were substantial and allowed our bowlers to bowl with maybe a bit more freedom, and allowed them to attack and get the rewards.” Turned to PhilanderFinally, the new ball arrived, but Prior, looking solid, managed a ferocious four off Steyn’s first over. Proteas’ skipper Smith turned to Philander to make a breakthrough. “South Africa were the better side, not just in this test match, but over the course of the series and they thoroughly deserve their victory,” England captain Andrew Strauss said in a post-match interview. Man of the matchThe man of the match at Lords, though, was Vernon Philander, who showed his all-round ability at test level for the first time. In South Africa’s first innings of 309 all out, he and JP Duminy shared the top score of 61, and he followed that up with 35, which was the third-highest score in the Proteas’ second knock. “Moments like this make cricket what it is. It’s a great advert for test cricket, the way the game unfolded. It’s just a fantastic day for us,” Amla said in his post-match interview. Facing an old ball, but with the threat of a new one on the way, the pair played their shots, including some superb reverse sweeps by Prior off of the leg-spinner Imran Tahir. As they bravely challenged the Proteas’ bowlers, so the vocal support of the crowd picked up. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material ‘They deserve every accolade’“The entire squad, including all the players and team management, deserve every accolade they will undoubtedly receive,’ Cricket South Africa Acting CEO Jacques Faul said in a statement. “It’s a message from all of us. He’s been an integral part of the Proteas for 147 games. This was meant to be his 150th test match, so we really wanted to let him know that he’s here with us today and this series victory was for him and everything he’s done for the Proteas.” 21 August 2012South Africa celebrated Graeme Smith’s world record-equalling 93rd test as captain with a 51-run victory over England at Lords on Monday, which secured the number one ranking in test cricket for the Proteas. “Yeah, I’m not even the second best batsman in my team, so I don’t think the rankings really matter too much, but I’m just glad to be doing well for the team,” the ever-modest Amla replied. Just before the post-match presentations, Smith had written a message on his shirt for Mark Boucher, who had been forced out of the series by a career-ending eye injury. He explained it to Atherton. “I know that he is watching,” he said to cheers from the crowd. On top of that, he was the toughest bowler to get away throughout the match, and the game’s most successful bowler, claiming 2 for 48 in 24 overs in the first innings and 5 for 30 in the second off 14.5 overs. Man of the seriesHashim Amla was named man of the series. Not only was his total of 482 runs over 200 runs more than any other batsman on either side managed in the series, his 311 in the first test was better than any other batsman managed in the entire series. With his fourth ball, he nipped one away and found the edge of Prior’s bat to all but wrap up the series as the wicketkeeper departed for a very well played 73. Terrific fightbackEngland, though, fought back terrifically, with Jonny Bairstow, called up in place of the controversial Kevin Pietersen, following up his first innings’ top score of 95 with a sparkling 54 off only 47 balls. Jonathan Trott also showed attacking intent, making 63, before Dale Steyn removed him. After Philander had reduced them to 16 for 2 on Sunday, that task looked as if it would be beyond them. When he added the wicket of Ian Bell for four, with the total on 34 on Monday, it appeared the game wouldn’t become much of a contest. ‘A great feeling’Looking back on the tour of England, he added: “It’s a long two months here for this test series – three test matches – it’s a long time to stay mentally focused and to deal with the pressure of playing England in England, and to have won the series 2-0 is a great feeling.” Then Matt Prior and Stuart Broad took the game to the Proteas. Broad, playing with gay abandon, was always likely to offer an opportunity or two and he was eventually dismissed for 37, caught by Amla off the bowling of Kallis. Unfortunately for South Africa the onslaught did not slow, it grew as Graeme Swann joined Prior out in the middle. Philander had done the trick. South Africa had won the match, the series, and ascended to number one in the world rankings. Atherton pointed out that Amla is now number two in the test batting rankings and number one in the one-day international rankings. “You’ve come a long way,” he suggested. Partnership brokenAfter the pair had added 74 runs, the partnership was finally broken. A moment’s hesitation by Swann on a quick run did him in as Jacques Rudolph fired the ball in to Tahir, who threw down the stumps from a metre away to just beat Swann’s attempt to make it into the crease. With the score on 282, James Anderson joined Prior in the middle. The wicketkeeper, the established man at the crease, had to continue playing his shots and that led to him finding a thick outside edge as he attempted to drive. Sprinting in from deep, Duminy took the catch and it seemed the match was in the bag for South Africa at last. Former England captain Michael Atherton, at the post-match presentations, asked Smith about where he thought the difference was between the teams. More drama followed, however, as umpire Simon Taufel asked for a review of Morne Morkel’s delivery and the slo-mo revealed the big fast bowler had overstepped and sent down a no ball. Prior, who had almost reached the boundary, was called back and returned to the crease to rowdy cheers from the crowd. The very next delivery, to last man in Steven Finn, went to second slip where Jacques Kallis bagged the catch to end the contest and the series. “They have made the entire country extremely proud and it has been a wonderful period for South African sport coming after the impressive performance of Team SA at the Olympic Games and Ernie Els’s victory at the British Open Golf Championship.” England, who led by six runs on the first innings, had been set a challenging 346 for victory after South Africa posted 351 in their second innings. last_img read more
