Roy Hodgson delighted after Mamadou Sakho cleared of ‘nasty’ doping allegations | Football News

first_imgRoy Hodgson is pleased Crystal Palace centre-back Mamadou Sakho was vindicated in the High Court this week over allegations he had taken a banned performance-enhancing drug.Back in 2016, the former Liverpool defender was briefly suspended after he tested positive for a fat-burning substance called higenamine, but UEFA’s disciplinary body later found it was not on World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned list.- Advertisement – “I told him how delighted I was that he has cleared his name because this is a very nasty accusation to be hanging over your head, that you’re the drug cheat, especially when you haven’t cheated at all and it’s been a mistake unfortunately from WADA which I’m pleased to say.“Also I must congratulate them. They’ve had the decency and the courage to hold their hands up and say, ‘this was a mistake, we have perhaps damaged this man’s career and we’re making a full apology for it, and we are presumably compensating him for any losses he has had along the way.”‘While suspended at the end of the 2015-16 season, Sakho missed out on a place in Liverpool’s side to play Sevilla in the Europa League final and also France’s squad for a home European Championship.He moved to Selhurst Park in 2017 and quickly impressed, however in recent seasons injury problems have restricted his involvement under Hodgson.

Canadian BSE probe suggests 38 cattle at risk

first_imgJan 10, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Investigators of Canada’s second case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) have determined that 38 cattle might have been exposed to the same feed as the infected cow and that one of those was exported to the United States. The report quoted Sergio Tolusso of the CFIA as saying that 66 of 110 feed samples were found to contain animal material, though they were sold as being free of such material. Officials subsequently inspected some feed mills and concluded that feed from four of them might have contained material from ruminants, Tolusso was quoted as saying. “It is possible that these animals could have been exposed to the same feed as the infected animal,” the CFIA said. Despite the low risk, DeHaven said the USDA would “make every reasonable effort” to trace the imported animal and any others from the same birth group, as the agency did after Canada’s first BSE case was discovered in May 2003 and some cows from the herd of origin were traced to the United States. But Tolusso said there was little risk that the ruminant materials in the cattle feeds contained the BSE agent because the incidence of BSE in Canadian cattle is low. In related news, a report from Canada’s CanWest News Service last week said some cattle feed samples tested by the CFIA early in 2004 might have contained ruminant animal remains, in violation of the ruminant-to-ruminant feed ban. The four mills implicated in the study took voluntary steps to reduce the risk of violating the feed ban, Tolusso said. They did not recall any feed products, because the protein material was not positively determined to be from cattle. The CFIA said that 9 of the 38 cattle in the birth cohort have been found and quarantined and that euthanization would begin this week. Another animal from the group previously tested negative for BSE after it was reported as a downer. The agency said it was trying to find the rest of the cattle and determine their status. Canadian officials announced Jan 2 that BSE, or mad cow disease, had been confirmed in an older dairy cow. The cow came from a farm near Barrhead, Alta., northwest of Edmonton, according to an Edmonton Journal report last week. The infected cow gave birth in 2003 and 2004, but both calves died of causes unrelated to BSE, the CFIA reported. The report noted that ruminant remains can still be fed to nonruminants such as chickens and pigs, and chicken and pig materials can be fed to ruminants. About half of the 110 feed samples were from imported feed products and the rest came from Canadian mills, the story said. DeHaven and the CFIA said the risk of finding another BSE case from the infected cow’s birth herd is very small. “Finding multiple cases of BSE in a single birth cohort is rare, based on international experiences,” the CFIA said. DeHaven called it “extremely unlikely” that the imported animal would have had BSE. Dr. Ron DeHaven of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said Jan 7 that one animal from the infected cow’s birth cohort was imported into the United States in February 2002 for immediate slaughter. DeHaven, head of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, said USDA and the Food and Drug Administration would trace what happened to the animal. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced Jan 7 that the infected cow’s birth cohort—cattle born on the same farm and within 12 months before or after its birth in 1996—included 38 other cattle of “primary interest.” To prevent the spread of BSE, Canada and the United States both banned the feeding of ruminant animal remains to ruminants (cud-chewing animals) in 1997. Canadian news reports quoted the CFIA as saying that the infected cow’s birth herd also included 55 bull calves, which would have been slaughtered very young. Cattle are believed to contract BSE by eating protein from infected cattle. Consuming meat products from infected cattle is thought to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) in humans.last_img read more

H5N1 resurfaces in South Korean poultry

first_imgApr 4, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Agriculture officials in South Korea today confirmed that large numbers of chicken deaths at a commercial farm in the southwestern part of the country were caused by H5N1 avian influenza.An agriculture ministry official said plans were underway to slaughter about 308,000 chickens near the outbreak area, the Associated Press reported today. South Korea’s last H5N1 outbreak occurred just over a year ago, when the virus struck a duck farm in South Chungcheong province, according to a previous report from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).The outbreak site is an egg production farm in Gimje, about 162 miles south of Seoul, according to a report yesterday by Xinhua, China’s state news agency. The farm has about 150,000 chickens and produces 100,000 eggs per day. A report the country submitted to the OIE on Apr 2 said chicken deaths started increasing on Mar 29, and 3 days later 1,000 birds were found dead, which led the owner of the farm to notify veterinary services.Officials said eggs from the farm would be recalled and buried to prevent the spread of the disease, and eggs from seven other farms in the neighborhood will also be destroyed, Xinhua reported. The story added that there have been no reports of people becoming sick after eating eggs.Officials are obtaining blood samples from chickens, migratory birds, and foreign workers at the farm to determine the source of the outbreak, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported today. Kim Chang-Seob, the agriculture ministry’s chief veterinary officer, told AFP that an early spring outbreak was somewhat unusual, because most outbreaks occur between November and March.Kim said health officials suspect the virus may have come from migratory birds or perhaps infected workers who came from areas experiencing avian flu outbreaks. “The infected farm hires 11 foreign workers who came from Mongolia, Vietnam, and China,” he told AFP.See also:OIE reports on South Korean outbreakhttp://www.oie.int/downld/AVIAN%20INFLUENZA/A2008_AI.phpJun 18, 2007, final OIE report on previous South Korean outbreaklast_img read more

Salmonella -tainted cereal sickens 21 in 13 states

first_imgEditor’s note: The numbers in this story were revised on Apr 15 to reflect a correction issued by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA originally said the outbreak involved 23 cases in 14 states, but on Apr 15 the agency said the correct numbers were 21 cases in 13 states.Apr 14, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has linked at least 21 illnesses in 13 states to a Salmonella strain that triggered a recent recall of puffed rice and puffed wheat cereals made by Malt-O-Meal, based in Minneapolis.According to federal and state public health officials, the outbreak involves the same uncommon strain, Salmonella enterica serotype Agona, that caused an outbreak 10 years ago that was linked to toasted oats cereal produced at Malt-O-Meal’s Northfield, Minn., plant.The FDA, in an Apr 12 statement, said the products—originally recalled on Apr 5—include unsweetened puffed rice and puffed wheat cereals that were distributed nationally under the Malt-O-Meal label, as well as several other private-label brands such as Acme, America’s Choice, Food Club, Giant, Hannaford, Jewell, Laura Lynn, Pathmark, Shaw’s, ShopRite, Tops, and Weis Quality. The products have “best if used by” dates that range from Apr 8, 2008, to Mar 18, 2009.Malt-O-Meal said in an Apr 11 press release that routine sampling revealed Salmonella on a product that was produced on Mar 24, and a follow-up investigation determined additional products may have been exposed to the pathogen.In a statement issued Apr 11, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the Minnesota Department of Health had confirmed that an S Agona isolate obtained from the state’s Malt-O-Meal plant had the same pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) pattern as isolates from people who were ill.According to the CDC’s most recent count, as of Apr 11 the outbreak had sickened 21 patients in 13 states, including California, Colorado, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Illness onset dates were known for 9 patients and ranged from Jan 22 to Mar 2. Patients’ ages range from 1 to 95 years, and 62% are female. Three hospitalizations have been reported, but no deaths.The CDC said the PulseNet system notified its outbreak team on Apr 7 about a cluster of human S Agona isolates from several states that had the same genetic fingerprint. Three days later, several state health departments notified the CDC that patients who had S Agona infections had eaten Malt-O-Meal cereal products.State health departments, the CDC, and the FDA are in the process of identifying additional cases and are investigating what led to the outbreak, according to the CDC statement. However, Malt-O-Meal said its own investigation into the source of the Salmonella had “determined a root cause of this situation and corrective measures have been taken to ensure that there is no reoccurrence of this issue.” The company did not specify what the root cause was.Chris Neugent, Malt-O-Meal’s president and chief executive officer, said in the press release that the company has had a strong food safety record with systems that exceed industry standards, including a new program that requires suppliers to use third-party audits to prove they have effective food safety programs.”We will take any additional measures necessary to preserve our customers’ confidence in the safety and wholesomeness of the products we offer to consumers,” he said.In April and May of 1998, at least 209 people from 11 states were sickened in an S Agona outbreak involving Malt-O-Meal’s toasted oats cereal, according to a Jun 12, 1998, report in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). At least 47 patients were hospitalized. According to the MMWR report, the outbreak only involved the Millville brand of toasted-oats cereal made by Malt-O-Meal.In the MMWR report, the CDC said S Agona is an uncommon serotype that accounts for about 1.5% of human Salmonella isolates and is found in several animal reservoirs, including poultry, cattle, and pigs, and in animal feed. Other outbreaks involving S Agona have been linked to dried milk and a commercial peanut-flavored snack.Craig Hedberg, PhD, a foodborne disease expert and associate professor of environmental health sciences at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in Minneapolis, told CIDRAP News that there may an environmental source of S Agona at the plant, despite the steps that Malt-O-Meal reportedly took in response to the previous outbreak in 1998.”My guess is that the bug may have been in the plant the whole time, but that to have enough contamination to cause an outbreak also required an amplifying event,” he said.Hedberg said that if this is, in fact, the same strain that caused the previous outbreak, it would be interesting to review PulseNet data see if health officials have missed other cases involving the outbreak strain over the past 10 years.This latest Salmonella outbreak underlines a finding the CDC released a few days ago in its annual FoodNet update, he said. “We haven’t made much progress in controlling Salmonella,” Hedberg said. Data from the CDC’s 10-state FoodNet surveillance system suggested that in 2007 rates of infection with Campylobacter, Listeria, Salmonella, Shigella, E coli O157, and Yersinia did not decline significantly compared with the previous 3 years.Of 17,883 foodborne infections that were reported through FoodNet in 2007, up slightly from the 17,252 reported in 2006, Salmonella led the list, with 6,790 confirmed cases (38% of the total).See also:Apr 12 FDA press releasehttp://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/2008/ucm116880.htmCDC Salmonella Agona pagehttp://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/agona/CDC.

Hotels and camps will have the advantage of obtaining a concession on the maritime domain

first_imgIn the future, tourist houses, ie owners of hotels and camps will have the right to a beach concession on request, ie an advantage in obtaining a concession on a maritime domain, if their facilities have an infrastructural connection outside the settlement, to the beach where they want to place their deck chairs, umbrellas and other facilities. which in turn will be prescribed by plans for the use of maritime property in their counties or local self-government units (LGUs).Both counties and local self-government units will earn two percent more money from concessions than now, 35 percent each, while 20 percent will go to the state budget and 10 percent to the new Maritime Property Fund that will be established. The boundaries of the maritime domain, which have not yet been determined, will be determined by the county offices, and the procedure of legalization of facilities on the maritime domain that are in accordance with the spatial plans will be initiated, and the rest will be removed, writes Business diary. These are all novelties from the proposal of three laws in the process of reforming maritime legislation, the Law on Port Authorities, which is already in parliamentary procedure, the Law on Amendments to the Maritime Code and the Law on Maritime Property and Seaports, which should be passed by the end of the year.The objectives of the reform are to increase the competitiveness of the maritime economy, the digitalisation of the maritime system, raising the level of safety of navigation and protection of the sea, and the effective management of maritime assets. Due to the fact that, by the nature of things, it is difficult to reconcile numerous interests of the public and private sector, the new Law on Maritime Property Croatia has been waiting for eight years, which is why many investments are pending, and there is chaos and frequent misuse of maritime property. in the non-proprietary model.The new law stipulates that the use of the beach will be determined by local self-government units in the maritime domain management plan, and they will give approvals for smaller interventions (umbrellas, deck chairs) or concessions for larger interventions, all with public tenders, with the exception of tourist company. Camps that stretch along long beaches will only be able to get one part of the beach on request, and the rest will go to tender. In addition, on each beach one part will be without any activity, “for towels”.Both counties and local self-government units will have the obligation to maintain beaches, both regular and extraordinary, and the state will intervene through the fund in cases of major works. Considering that a total of around HRK 150 million is collected annually from concessions on maritime property outside the port, the Maritime Property Fund should have around HRK 15 million at its disposal annually.In order to strengthen the cooperation of all stakeholders (state, county, local self-government), representatives of all levels will sit on the commissions for the award of concessions, regardless of who announces the tender.last_img read more
