Another Outbreak in Bong Buruli Ulcer

first_imgAs Ebola reluctantly makes its exit, a new outbreak known as Buruli Ulcer has emerged in Bong County. Making the disclosure last Friday at the regular County Health Team meeting, Dr. Azoakoi, the county’s Health Officer explained that buruli ulcer is a chronic skin and lenient tissue infection that causes weakness and can lead to permanent deformity and disability.  According to Dr. Azoakoi, children under 15 years are the most susceptible to the disease that leads to the devastation of the skin including the soft tissue with large ulcers on the legs or arms.  The disease is caused by infection with mycobacterium ulcerans, an organism belonging to the family of bacteria that cause tuberculosis and leprosy, he told the gathering.The buruli ulcer is now prevalent in the Zeanzue Community in Yellequelleh District in Bong County, with more than 25 children already affected since the outbreak some weeks ago, Dr. Azoakoi reported, expressing fear for the lives of numerous other children vulnerable to the disease.“Let me make this vivid to you: patients who are treated initially suffer long-term functional disability,” Dr. Azoakoi told the gathering.Buruli ulcer is known in Liberian parlance as “be serious” because it is very stubborn to heal and therefore requires meticulous treatment. Therefore, to overcome the skin disease, one must “be serious” about it.He mentioned that if nothing is done to contain the disease, the likelihood of many children in the community being direct victims is eminent.According to him, some of the children of one parent have refused to eat with their siblings who are suffering from the disease for fear of also becoming infected.Commenting on the signs and symptoms, the County Health Officer explained that the disease starts as a painless swelling of the legs, arms or face and without treatment within four weeks, the disease undermines the bone, causing deformities.The disease can be treated if the patient is detected early.Dr. Azoakoi recommended that health education at the village and community levels, training of health workers and volunteers, strengthening of health facilities with essential drugs and equipment will help to prevent the further spread of the disease.“Since there is no adequate information of how the buruli ulcer or tropical ulcer is communicated, preventive actions cannot be applied but it is vital to minimize the suffering and disabilities of the children,” the Health Officer advised.He said the actual cause of the ulcer has not been established, either by medical institutions in the county or the County Health Team.  He did tell the Daily Observer, however, that there has been no report of death from the buruli ulcer since the outbreak began some weeks ago.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Howell captures Nissan Open

first_imgHowell then parred the third playoff hole – making a 3-foot putt after Mickelson missed from 10 feet – to give him just his second PGA Tour victory on Sunday. Howell, 27, shot a final-round 6-under 65 on his second-favorite golf course and won $936,000. Mickelson shot a 3-under 68. “To finally win here, I’m speechless,” Howell said. “I’m the luckiest guy in the world right now.” Howell seemed like the unluckiest guy on the tour for a while. He had nine second-place finishes since his last – and only – PGA victory in 2002. He finished second to Woods in the Buick Invitational last month and in a tie for second at the Sony Open to start the season. When Howell’s putt fell on the final playoff hole, the par-3 14th, he didn’t jump on a car or pump his fists. He simply looked up and closed his eyes. Phil Mickelson had the Nissan Open under control but stumbled down the stretch and bogeyed the 18th hole while Howell, who started the day three shots back, snuck his way up the leaderboard. Howell trailed Mickelson by four shots after 12 holes, but his steady putter, coupled with Mickelson’s uncharacteristically shaky short game, forced a playoff. • Photo Gallery: Nissan Open PACIFIC PALISADES – Charles Howell III now has something his good friend Tiger Woods doesn’t even have: a win at Riviera Country Club. center_img The look had relief written all over it. “I said a prayer before I hit the putt,” Howell said. “I said, `It’s time, let’s go in.’ ” Howell has been on a tear all season. In five events, Howell’s already won $2 million. This victory probably propels him into the Masters at Augusta, his hometown. He said that was his main priority this season. The win was a bonus. Howell made seven birdies and one bogey Sunday. He made his big move on the back nine as he birdied the 14th, 16th and 17th holes, two of which are par-3s. He birdied the 14th by making a 17-foot putt and the 16th with a 33-footer. He was on the green in two on No. 17 and two-putted from 49 feet for birdie. He wasn’t spectacular on the playoff holes, but neither was Mickelson. They both parred the 18th, which was the first playoff hole. They continued to the 10th hole, where Howell lost a playoff to Mike Weir at the Nissan in 2003 by missing a 6-foot putt. Howell said he thought about that debacle just before the playoff started. He hit his tee shot left and onto a cart path behind trees. He opted to hit instead of taking a drop and his ball clipped the tree branches and carried just 16 yards. He chipped to within two feet and made the putt. Asked about the hole, Howell said: “We have a love-hate relationship.” Then on to the 14th, where Mickelson and Howell both came up short of the green on the par-3. Mickelson, who was 52 feet short, used his putter on the fringe and it hopped up on the edge and was 10 feet short. He missed the putt. Howell chipped to within three feet and made the putt. jill.painter@dailynews.com (818) 713-3615 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Robitaille is King on L.A. goal list

first_img With a hat trick in the Kings’ 8-6 victory over Atlanta at Staples Center, Robitaille caught and passed Dionne, his former mentor, to become the most prolific scorer in Kings history, with 552 career goals. Robitaille equaled Dionne’s mark with a goal 4 minutes, 20 seconds into the game and exceeded it 4:56 into the third period on a breakaway, sending the announced sellout crowd of 18,118 into a frenzy. In November, Robitaille missed nine games with a leg injury and last month was benched for three other games because coach Andy Murray was unhappy with his play. But those were distant memories Thursday. Robitaille tied the record in the first period, when he put a nifty move on Atlanta goalie Mike Dunham in front of the net and gave the Kings a 1-0 lead. By the time Robitaille scored again, the game had taken several wild turns and was tied 6-6. Mike Weaver fed a perfect pass to the neutral zone to Robitaille, who often is self effacing about his lack of speed. But Robitaille skated in alone and beat Dunham with a wrist shot for goal number 551. Robitaille’s parents had planned to visit Los Angeles after the All-Star break and watch his pursuit of the record, but Robitaille got the job done early. “My kids have been rooting for me the last few weeks, so this is really special,” Robitaille said. KINGS NOTES: Goaltender Mathieu Garon, who bruised his left shoulder in Tuesday’s game, sat out Thursday. Garon practiced Thursday morning but experienced continued pain in the shoulder. In Garon’s place, Jason LaBarbera made his first start since Dec. 29. The Kings also were without Alexander Frolov, who missed a second consecutive game with the flu. Hurricanes 4, Islanders 3: Eric Staal scored his 30th goal of the season to help Carolina beat visiting New York for its ninth consecutive victory. The winning streak ties the franchise record set earlier this season the previous best of seven came about 21 years ago when the team was the Hartford Whalers. And Carolina improved the NHL’s best home record to 21-4-1. Bruins 5, Flyers 2: Travis Green scored twice to lead visiting Boston past Philadelphia. Sami Kapanen and Simon Gagne scored for Philadelphia, which has lost three games in a row at home since returning from an 8-2-1 road trip. Capitals 5, Blues 4, SO: Matt Pettinger scored in the fourth round of a shootout, giving host Washington a victory. Rangers 4, Penguins 2: Michal Rozsival scored the winning goal late in the third period as visiting New York prevailed. Devils 4, Predators 3, SO: Viktor Kozlov and Brian Gionta scored in a shootout and visiting New Jersey won its eighth consecutive game. Blackhawks 4, Avalanche 2: Kyle Calder scored two goals and Nikolai Khabibulin made 37 saves in his first game back following a groin pull as Chicago beat visiting Colorado. Flames 3, Canadiens 2: Jarome Iginla scored twice and added an assist as Calgary beat visiting Montreal. Coyotes 6, Panthers 3: Shane Doan scored two of Phoenix’s five power-play goals as the Coyotes beat visiting Florida. Canucks 4, Sabres 1: Nolan Baumgartner’s power-play goal broke a tie 4 minutes into the third period and helped Vancouver win at home. Oilers 3, Sharks 2 (SO): Michael Peca and Ryan Smyth each scored shootout goals to help Edmonton snap a three-game losing streak. Rookie goalie Mike Morrison turned back Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau to give the Oilers the win. :Roundup of other games from AP. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It was overwhelming for a few moments. It’s something that I will cherish forever.” Robitaille capped the hat trick with 3.9 seconds left, when he fired a shot from the opposite faceoff circle, approximately 175 feet away, and into an empty Atlanta net. That goal came after Jeff Giuliano scored the game-winner, with 4:58 left, for his second goal of the game. Kings defenseman Mattias Norstrom also had a career game, with one goal and four assists. But the night belonged to Robitaille. Robitaille, the top-scoring left winger in NHL history with 663 goals including stints with Pittsburgh, the Rangers and Detroit turns 40 next month and is in his 19th and perhaps most challenging season. center_img Marcel Dionne took in the kid, his 19-year-old rookie teammate.

CRANA COLLEGE STUDENTS SUPPORT BOYS IN GREEN!

first_imgThe first year students of Crana College with their teachers at the Aviva Stadium.First year students of Crana College along with members of staff headed to the Republic of Ireland versus Georgia game at the Aviva Stadium.Some of the students had never been on a coach before without their Parents while many of the students were never in Dublin before.Other students were never at a real live soccer game before and the vast majority had never been to the Aviva Stadium before. It was going to be a day to remember for everyone.“We arrived at the Aviva in plenty of time to get to our seats and enjoy the big match. Most of the die-hard supporters fretted, fumed, whinged and moaned about the Irish performance until John Walters scored, the whole stadium erupted when the ball hit the back of the Georgian net. The noise was deafening and our faith in the ‘Boys in Green’ was restored. Now we had another problem, how do we hold on to the 1 – 0 score line until the final whistle. “It was nail biting those last 20 minutes at the Aviva praying that Georgia would not score and hoping that Germany would do us a real big favour and beat Scotland. They really obliged big time winning 3 – 2 and we sang their praises at full time.“We rounded up the troops at 10pm and headed for the busses, arriving at Crana College at 2am to meet up with parents. A job very well done, another great trip to the Aviva had come to an end.“Many thanks to Mr Casey, Mr McMullan, Mr Monagle, Mr Ward, Ms Gallagher and Ms C Bradley who organised and accompanied our 1st years on the trip.

DONEGAL MUM CHOKES BACK TEARS OVER HER LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL BIRTH HELL

first_imgA Co Donegal woman choked back tears as she spoke of her hell, giving birth at Letterkenny General Hospital.Honey Larkin said she had a “near-death experience” when she began to haemorrhage internally after her baby was delivered by Caesarean section, the High Court was told yesterday.Ms Larkin said she almost died and had lost more than half of her blood volume by the time she was brought to an operating theatre at Letterkenny General Hospital for surgery in January 2008. Ms Larkin (40), Churchill, Letterkenny, is taking a legal action against the HSE and a consultant gynaecologist at Letterkenny General Hospital, Dr Eddie Aboud, over alleged negligence and breach of duty.She claims she is suffering from post-traumatic stress as a result of her experience and has not recovered from the possibility that she might have died.Ms Larkin claims the defendants failed to check, or check sufficiently, or recognise she was bleeding profusely and losing substantial amounts of blood. There was a failure to attach due significance to or take appropriate action in response to her distress signals, she claims.By the time she underwent a second operation to stop the bleeding, she was in a parlous state and had suffered massive blood loss and a near-death experience, it is claimed. The defendants say Ms Larkin was treated in a timely and appropriate man- ner when surgical complications were identified.The case before Mr Justice Kevin Cross continues. DONEGAL MUM CHOKES BACK TEARS OVER HER LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL BIRTH HELL was last modified: February 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:alleged negligenceDr Eddie AboudLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more
