Remember, this is the same treated sewage water, or “reuse” water that residents are informed to NOT to drink! Sounds horrible, considering that treated sewage water does not successfully remove all viruses. This is not what nature intended! The multiple soil layers were intended to filter the used water with time! Mama Mia Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here At its height in the 1940s and ‘50s, polio paralyzed more than 35,000 Americans every year. But thanks to vaccines as well as good hygiene and sanitation practices, polio has largely been forgotten in the developed world.Now, even in less-developed regions, it’s close to being wiped out entirely. But there are still challenges to overcome before polio can join smallpox as a virus that has been eradicated worldwide.With the support of the World Health Organization, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (a strategic partner of The Conversation US that provides funding for The Conversation internationally), Rotary International and others, public health workers and volunteers work tirelessly and in dangerous conditions to vaccinate every one of the world’s children. The number of polio cases globally dropped from 350,000 in 1988 to just 37 in 2016. Thirty years ago, polio was regularly found in 125 of the world’s 190 or so countries. Today, only three countries continue to see regular cases: Pakistan, Nigeria, and Afghanistan.Of these, Pakistan is closest to becoming polio-free thanks to its persistent, innovative vaccination campaign programs. But its poor security, weak health system and lack of proper sanitation work against this effort.The lessons infectious disease preparedness and response researchers like us are learning in Pakistan, during what’s hopefully a final push against polio, will also apply elsewhere, as public health experts work to wipe out other infectious diseases around the world.Transmission electron micrograph of polioviruses. Graham Beards, CC BY-SAPolio in people and in the environmentWild poliovirus is not particularly hardy and can’t survive for long in the environment. If the virus cannot find an unvaccinated person to serve as its host, it will die. This fact means vaccination efforts can fully exterminate the virus by denying it a place to live in human hosts.The world’s polio eradication campaign has already done away with two of the three naturally occurring wild polioviruses. Wild poliovirus type 2 was last seen in 1999, and there has not been a case of wild poliovirus type 3 since 2012.Polio spreads primarily through water contaminated with the feces of an infected person. Where sources of drinking water come into contact with sewage waste – often the case in developing countries like Pakistan – the virus spreads easily.To complicate matters, nearly 3 out of 4 people infected with the poliovirus never have any symptoms at all. So most carriers of polio never know they harbor the virus, or that they’re spreading it to others.In addition, those who do have symptoms usually seem to have the flu, with fever, headaches, body aches and vomiting. In only around 1 percent of cases do symptoms include temporary or permanent paralysis.This means that it is possible for the virus to exist and spread in a community even when there are no diagnosed cases of polio. For that reason, public health workers use two different measures to gauge the success of a vaccination effort: the number of people diagnosed with polio, and how much of the virus is found in the environment.A health worker gives a polio vaccine to a child at a railway station in Pakistan. AP Photo/Fareed KhanCultural challengesIn Pakistan, these two measures paint somewhat different pictures of disease eradication. The not-so-good news is that 16 percent of the water sources tested in 2017 contain the polio virus, a slight increase from 2016 levels.The better news is that from 2014 to 2017, the number of new polio cases dropped a whopping 97 percent, from 306 cases to just eight. The country’s government, with the support of the international community, has vaccinated most Pakistanis, which no doubt accounts for the impressive drop in diagnosed cases. However, because vaccination is not universal, the virus persists in some regions of Pakistan and poses a threat to those who are not vaccinated or who have not received vaccination boosters as scheduled.There are several cultural barriers to wiping out polio in Pakistan. Vaccinations are usually given at health clinics and transit points, where public health workers can make contact with a large share of the population. Mobile vaccination units reach people in other locations, but cannot safely get to children in high-conflict areas.In many of these areas, armed militants refuse to let public health officials vaccinate children, claiming that the polio vaccine is part of a Western plot to sterilize Muslims. In 2012, the Taliban, which remains in control in some mountainous areas, imposed a ban on vaccinations, which slowed the polio eradication effort. Furthermore, polio vaccine campaign workers have been targets of violence, as seen most recently in the killing of a mother-daughter vaccination team in January and an ambush this past week in a remote tribal area that killed two medical workers and wounded two others.With armed security, a Pakistani health worker marks a house after administering polio vaccine. AP Photo/Shakil AdilIn order to overcome some of the challenges, members of the eradication campaign have coordinated vaccination efforts with military operations. When a large military offense in 2015 pushed the Taliban out of the northern provinces of Pakistan, it cleared the way for hundreds of thousands of children to receive the vaccination.High illiteracy rates, extreme poverty, and religious beliefs also can cause parents to refuse vaccines – in Pakistan and elsewhere – for their children. In these instances, education and outreach are vitally important. Helping parents understand the dangers of disease may help overcome misinformation about the vaccine and increase positive association with vaccination, as it has in the United States.Pharmaceutical challengesPublic health officials have two types of polio vaccine in their medical supply kit: an oral vaccine and an inactivated vaccine. Both are necessary to eradicate polio. The oral vaccine is made from a live weakened virus. The inactivated version is made with a dead virus.The oral vaccination works significantly better against naturally occurring poliovirus, known as wild poliovirus. Additionally, the administration method – being given by mouth – is thought to increase vaccine uptake because it does not require an injection.The body builds immunity from this live vaccine, and then can withstand the virus if exposed to it in the future. Countries, where polio is present, must use the oral vaccine in order to eliminate wild poliovirus because the inactivated vaccine does not stop its transmission since it produces lower levels of mucosal immunity.Though necessary, using the live oral vaccine comes with some challenges. For example, it can cause vaccine-derived cases of polio, which include cases of paralysis. In this unfortunate and extremely rare scenario, the vaccine meant to prevent a terrible illness directly transmits it. Of the 10 billion doses of oral polio vaccine administered since 2000, there have only been 760 cases of vaccine-derived polio.Though the oral vaccine is vital to the eradication of wild poliovirus, its use must be discontinued as soon as the wild virus is wiped out. Otherwise, it runs the risk of hindering complete eradication by perpetuating existence of poliovirus in the environment through human excrement and continuing to introduce new vaccine-derived cases of the disease.Once Pakistan is declared free of wild poliovirus, the eradication campaign must switch to using the inactivated vaccine.Because the inactivated vaccine provokes a weaker immune response, it doesn’t effectively disrupt the transmission of wild poliovirus. But it does protect against the weaker vaccine-derived poliovirus, and it doesn’t contribute to vaccine-derived cases. Once the only remaining strains are vaccine-derived, inactivated vaccines can be used to completely wipe out the disease.It is likely that a world without polio may not be too far off in the future — and then infectious disease researchers can make use of the lessons learned in Pakistan as they move the fight to other diseases elsewhere around the world.

first_imgTrump Las Vegas ordered to bargain with workersDuring the final week before the election — but not reported by the corporate press — the National Labor Relations Board on Nov. 3 ordered Trump International Hotel Las Vegas to bargain with Culinary Workers Local 226. The union was elected in late 2015 to represent about 500 mostly Latinx housekeepers, food and beverage staff, and guest service workers. Ever since March 29, the hotel has contested the election and refused to recognize the UNITE HERE affiliate. Along with a series of rallies and marches demanding recognition, the union filed an unfair labor practices case against Trump management in May. In September it called a nationwide boycott of all Trump properties, with AFL-CIO support, to bolster its right to collective bargaining. (In These Times, Nov. 7) Will Trump respect the workers’ rights? Stay tuned.A first: McDonald’s pays wage theft claimMcDonald’s agreed on Oct. 30 to pay out $3.75 million in back pay, damages and legal fees to settle a lawsuit brought by 800 workers in five California restaurants. Filed in 2014, the class action suit accused both the Smith Family LP, owner of the five franchises, and the Illinois-based McDonald’s corporation of withholding overtime pay and failure to keep accurate pay records and compensate workers for time spent cleaning uniforms. Although McDonald’s has not officially admitted liability for widespread wage theft, the proposed settlement marks the first time the McDonald’s corporation agreed to settle legal claims from one of its franchises.An unrelated, currently pending case before the National Labor Relations Board will determine whether McDonald’s is a joint employer alongside franchisees. If so, McDonald’s could be found liable for labor violations at all franchises, including a pending sexual harassment complaint filed by 15 workers in California. If ruled a joint employer, the McDonald’s corporation would be required to bargain with any unions formed by McDonald’s workers. (, Oct. 30)Momentive bargains unfairly, spies; workers strikeSeven-hundred industrial workers at Momentive Performance Materials plants in Waterford, N.Y., and Willoughby, Ohio, walked off the job Nov. 2 after contract negotiations hit a standstill. The workers, represented by Electronic Workers-Communication Workers (IUE-CWA) Local 81359, make chemical adhesives used in construction and automotive industries. At issue are Momentive’s proposed health care cuts and elimination of retirement benefits. ( round-the-clock picket lines, Momentive, whose third-quarter earnings showed a 61 percent increase over last year’s earnings (from $44 million to $61 million), has kept both plants running with expensive scab labor — exposing its aim to bust the union. On Nov. 7, five days into the strike, the workers resoundingly rejected Momentive’s latest contract offer. According to worker Joe Duncan, “This contract was worth less than the one we already voted down. This is not fair bargaining.” (, Nov. 7)A Nov. 11 update posted on the union website reads: “The Company is now going to an all-time low: they are sending Private Investigators to homes of our members asking questions about issues in the Plant.” Union members are advised not to talk to investigators and to report such visits to the union. Meanwhile, the Capital District Area AFL-CIO called on all unionists to show solidarity on the Nov. 12 picket line.Stop wage theft for Calif. trucking, warehouse workersWhat do Michael Kors, Target and the U.S. Department of Defense have in common? They outsource their U.S. port trucking and warehousing to California Cartage and to Intermodal Bridge Transport — West Coast companies that violate U.S. labor laws and Kors, Target and DOD codes of conduct. Both Cal Cartage and IBT misclassify drivers as “independent contractors” to shift expenses onto drivers’ backs and to keep them from unionizing (and avoid paying Social Security, workers’ comp and disability). These workers, many Latinx immigrants, have filed multiple lawsuits and claims demanding an end to wage theft, a safe workplace and the right to form a union free from retaliation.

The bench comprising of the Chief Justice Ajai Lamba and Justice Soumitra Saikia noted that, under the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, children (which includes the son) shall mandatorily be required to maintain parents (includes step-mother also) and senior citizens. While considering a Matrimonial Appeal [filed by husband whose divorce petition was dismissed by the District Court], the High Court noted that it has come in evidence that the step-mother has no personal source of income, and that she is a senior citizen. The Court also perused an agreement which was compelled to be executed at the behest of the wife prior to seeking pre-arrest bail by the husband and his family members. The condition was to live separately away from the family members of the husband and that none of the family members including the step-mother of the husband will be permitted to visit them. Taking note of these, the court said: It is seen that the Family Court completely ignored this fact brought out during the evidence that the respondent compelled and prevented the appellant from performing his statutory duties towards his aged mother under the provisions of the 2007 Act. Such evidence is sufficient to be construed as an act of cruelty as the non-compliance/non-adherence to the provisions of the 2007 Act has criminal consequences leading to punishment or imprisonment as well as fine. The Court also noted that the wife had filed cases under Section 498A IPC which resulted in acquittal. “When a person undergoes a trial in which he is acquitted of the allegation of offence under Section 498-A of IPC, levelled by the wife against the husband, it cannot be accepted that no cruelty has meted on the husband.”In 2016, the Supreme Court also made similar observations while granting divorce to a husband who was forced to live separately from his parents. Normally, no husband would tolerate this and no son would like to be separated from his old parents and other family members, who are also dependent upon his income, the Court had said. Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_img By Tommie Lee – April 7, 2021 4 287 Notre Dame to require COVID vaccines for all students in the fall WhatsApp Pinterest (Tommie Lee/MNC) The University of Notre Dame says all students will be required to have the COVID-19 vaccine for the fall semester.From the University of Notre Dame:The University of Notre Dame will require all students — undergraduate, graduate and professional — returning to campus for the fall 2021 semester to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the University’s executive officers — President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Charles and Jill Fischer Provost Marie Lynn Miranda and Executive Vice President Shannon Cullinan — wrote in a letter sent today to the campus community. The University will accommodate documented medical or religious exemptions.“The safety of the University and local communities is always our highest priority,” Father Jenkins said. “Requiring students to be vaccinated for COVID-19 is a new and important addition to our health policies, one that we believe will enhance public health at Notre Dame and in our community, while also contributing to our ability to return to a more vibrant campus environment.”The announcement comes in advance of the University opening a clinic Thursday (April 8) with the Pfizer-BioNTech two-dose vaccine, making it especially easy for current students to meet the vaccine requirement.The vaccination clinic will use the Compton Family Ice Arena and will administer first doses from April 8 to 15, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Second doses will be administered from April 29 to May 6.In their letter, the executive officers encouraged students to be vaccinated at the on-campus clinic in the days and weeks ahead. They indicated that officials with the Indiana Department of Health have assured the University that there will be ample supply to fully inoculate the student body and any faculty and staff who have not yet been vaccinated.The University’s leaders also encouraged anyone on campus who has been vaccinated to register their status through an online tool.The University currently requires enrolled students to be immunized for hepatitis B, meningitis, measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus and chicken pox, and last fall required all students to receive the flu vaccine, again with medical and religious exemptions.
