Preventive measures include wearing repellants containing DEET, avoiding areas likely to be inhabited by mosquitoes at dawn and dusk, wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors and checking your window screen for holes.If you find a dead bird on your property, please report all dead birds and squirrels to the West Nile Virus and Dead Bird Hotline at (877) 968-2473 or online at http://westnile.ca.gov.The Pasadena Public Health Department continues to proactively monitor its mosquito and overall vector control efforts to reduce the risk of West Nile Virus, which is spread to humans from a bite from an infected mosquito.To control the presence of mosquitoes, staff travel throughout the City at least once a week to treat gutters, puddles, pools, and other free-standing water sources water that serve as prime breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Additionally, for more than a decade, the Pasadena Public Health Department has collaborated with the Pasadena Police Department to use police helicopters to help look for stagnant pools and green water sources.For more information on vector control, to receive free mosquito fish to prevent breeding, or to report a green pool or still water source, please call the Pasadena Public Health Department Environmental Health Division at (626) 744-6004.For more than 120 years, the Pasadena Public Health Department has worked to promote and protect the health of the greater Pasadena area. Visit www.cityofpasadena.net/publichealth.Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!

Biden revokes terrorist designation for Yemen’s Houthis

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s administration is moving to revoke the designation of Yemen’s Houthis as a terrorist group, citing the need to mitigate one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. President Donald Trump’s administration had branded the Iranian-backed Houthis as a foreign terrorist organization, a move that limited the provision of aid to the beleaguered Yemeni people, who have suffered under a yearslong civil war and famine. A State Department official confirmed the move Friday after members of Congress were notified of the administration’s plans. The official said the removal changed nothing about the Biden administration’s views of the Houthis, who have targeted civilians and kidnapped Americans.last_img read more

Student government, NDSP introduce SafeBouND campus safety service

first_imgTwo years after inaugurating O’SNAP, student government and Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) are “rebranding” the campus shuttle service as SafeBouND. “What we found with O’SNAP was that people were abusing it as a party shuttle because of the golf carts,” student body vice president Becca Blais said. “What then happened, was that numbers were going up and up and up, not because students felt unsafe on campus, but because students wanted to take advantage of this free ride from one place to the next. We decided to bring it back to the safety aspect.”Joseph Han Student body president Corey Robinson said 16,000 students requested rides last year, just on the weekend. “The numbers from Sunday to Wednesday are very manageable, about 200 to 400 requests a week, but on the weekends it goes up to 600 or 700,” he said. SafeBouND will start at 9 p.m. every day, ending at 1:30 a.m. during the week and 3 a.m. on the weekends starting Thursday nights. The golf carts and minivan will only be available during the week; on weekends, SafeBouND will be a walking service. “We looked at the analytics from last year and those were the popular times,” NDSP captain of crime prevention, outreach and safety Tracy Skibins said. “Student government thought it was important we work around parietals as well.” The SafeBouND weekday hours are slightly shorter than the hours for O’SNAP, which went until 3 a.m.“With the numbers, cutting it back on the weekdays shouldn’t make much of a difference,” chief of staff for student government Michael Markel said.  A “minimum of three and maximum of six” student walking pairs will be available on the weekends, Skibins said. To cut down on wait time, she said the pairs will be stationed at populated areas, like the library, LaFortune Student Center and Reckers, rather than being centered at Hammes-Mowbray Hall. “They have safety vests on that signify they work for SafeBouND, so you know they work for us,” Skibins said. “They also have a handheld radio that is in constant contact with our 911 dispatch center.”Robinson said the rebranding will help students realize the purpose of the service.“We think that since it will be a walking program during the weekend and the golf cart and van on the weekdays, it will be much more manageable,” Robinson said. “We think that will decrease numbers from that ‘party shuttle’ aspect and bring it down to the real issue at hand.”Blais said that by working so closely with NDSP, SafeBouND can “constantly” be adapted to fit the needs of the students. “We’re working to try to compliment SafeBouND with an off-campus safety program as well,” Robinson said. “We’re in the works for that, but our vision for down the road is to have an off campus safety program, which hopefully we can announce soon, partner and match up with campus safety and then we can have a more holistic view.”The program is open to the whole Notre Dame community, including faculty and students from Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross walking back to their campus. SafeBouND can be contacted through the ND Mobile app or by calling 574-631-5555.Both Skibins and Robinson said students also always have the option to call SafeBouND after hours to request a police or campus safety officer to assist them. “We’ll never turn anyone away,” Skibins said.Tags: NDSP, O’SNAP, SafeBouND, Student government, student safetylast_img read more

Arab and Jewish medics together on frontline of Israel’s virus fight

first_img“Without them, the Israeli medical system would collapse.”Israel’s Arab minority are the descendants of Palestinians who stayed on their land after the creation of Israel in 1948. They make up around 20 percent of the population, but slightly more of the country’s health care workers.The community regularly says it faces social discrimination and denounces a law that enshrines the Jewish character of Israel.But as the Jewish state struggles against the deadly novel coronavirus, the crisis is highlighting the collaborative nature of its health service. ‘In the trenches together’ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long faced accusations of racism towards the Arab minority and of inciting hatred against members of Arab political parties. He has described them as a “threat” to the country and one of his ministers has called them “terrorists in suits”.”Netanyahu knows the role of Arabs in the health service and in other sectors and he continues to spread hatred against Arabs and to lie unabashedly,” Walden said.Recently, nearly 700 Israeli medical professionals, roughly half of them Arab and half Jewish, signed a petition calling on Netanyahu to stop sowing division during a public health crisis.More than 3,800 cases of the novel coronavirus have been reported by Israel as of Sunday, and 12 people have died. After more than a year of political turmoil marked by three inconclusive general elections, Netanyahu is expected to remain in power and form an “emergency government” to manage the virus outbreak after a surprise agreement by his rival Benny Gantz to work with the premier.”Our goal, both Arabs and Jews, is to protect humanity, and we call for an end to incitement to hatred. We’re in the trenches together working to stop the coronavirus epidemic,” said Shukri Awawda, a senior doctor in the Arab city of Nazareth and one of those who spearheaded the petition. Topics : A photo shared widely on social media this week showed two medics pausing to pray in front of their ambulance. One was Jewish — standing and praying in the direction of Jerusalem — and the other a Muslim, who laid out his prayer rug and knelt facing towards Mecca. Some internet users praised the image published by Israel’s equivalent of the Red Cross, the Magen David Adom, as “inspiring” and underscored the need for unity in a crisis. Others took the opportunity to highlight the inequalities faced by the Arab minority. According to a 2017 study by the Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel, poverty rates are far higher in Arab neighborhoods, where the average life expectancy is also four years lower than among Jewish Israelis.center_img In Israel, Jewish and Arab doctors have worked side by side on the frontlines of the novel coronavirus fight, also battling entrenched schisms between their communities and stressing their unity in the face of the crisis.Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, near the city of Tel Aviv, is ranked among the best in the world and its directors say its standing is thanks to a team of Arab and Jewish caregivers working together in a society otherwise marked by divisions.”We work together with Arab medical staff everywhere and not just in the time of coronavirus. There is no difference between us,” Sheba deputy director emeritus, Rafi Walden, told AFP. Disparities in virus response? The number of novel coronavirus cases recorded in Arab areas has remained relatively low. This is “because fewer tests are being conducted in Arab areas”, said Israeli Arab lawmaker Jaber Asakla, who has made an urgent call for more resources to manage the health crisis.Another explanation could be the faster spread of the disease in large cities, according to researcher Mohammad Darawshe, who noted that “nearly 70 percent of Arab citizens live in villages and individual homes”.Meanwhile “70 percent of Jewish citizens live in cities and apartment blocks”, said Darawshe, who works with the Givat Haviva centre, which campaigns for equality between Arabs and Jews in Israel.With fewer resources, “Arab municipalities are definitely not prepared for when the big wave of coronavirus comes,” he warned.”They have not had the luxury of budgets to train their staff properly for emergency situations.”In a recent campaign on social media, Arab doctors and nurses wearing masks and protective gear urged fellow citizens to avoid spreading the virus by staying home, “for the sake of our loved ones, and for our sake”.last_img read more

England Golf Photographer Tom Ward passes away

Tom was the official photographer for England Golf, and previously the English Golf Union, for over 12 years and was probably one of the most experienced photographers in the UK specialising in amateur golf championships.  Tom’s passion and enthusiasm for his craft was always inspiring and his collection of images has provided a wonderful history for all that is great in the game we love. We will miss Tom and have many, many fond memories of him.  Our condolences and thoughts are with Tom’s family.  He was a talented man and was respected by many throughout the world of amateur golf and beyond.last_img read more

Sea Bright Pizzeria: ‘Bigger and Stronger’

first_imgBy John BurtonSEA BRIGHT – Cono and Karen Trezza are happy to be back kneading pizza dough and feeding their customers.The couple’s business, Sea Bright Pizzeria, has been rebuilt after being closed for eight months after being wrecked by Super Storm Sandy. They reopened in June.Karen and Cono Trezza, owners of Sea Bright Pizzeria, are happy to be up and running after their building was severely damaged last October by Super Storm Sandy.“To get back to work after everything … I can’t explain how it feels,” Cono said, trying to collect his thoughts about what they have gone through, what it all means and the emotions he has been feeling as they work to get their business back on track.“It’s the American dream, you know?” said Cono, who came to the U.S. from his native Italy in 1980.The Trezzas, who live in Lincroft with their two sons, Luca, 12, and Christian, 11, first opened their pizza restaurant on Ocean Avenue in 2005. They moved a few doors down the street to their 1068 Ocean Ave. location on what turned out to be the eve of Hurricane Irene in 2011. Having weathered that challenge reasonably well in a building that is probably nearly 100 years old, they figured they were good.But then came Sandy.The October 2012 storm devastated Sea Bright, including the pizzeria. Especially hard-hit was the Ocean Avenue business district.“Structurally, the front of the store was blown out,” by the waves and the water that flooded the area, Karen recalled. “Everything inside was demolished.”“The whole façade,” which was fronted by glass, Cono said, “was gone – destroyed.“Every piece of equipment was upside down,” including the large pizza ovens and much of it ruined.Cono returned to Sea Bright the day after the storm to check on his business.“It was shocking,” he said.The full extent of the damage and what it would entail to return to business did not sink in for weeks.While Karen had second thoughts about returning, her husband never did. He did find the prospect of rebuilding “daunting. You didn’t know where to start,” he said.An extra boost to the Trezzas’ spirits came from an unexpected source. As the state’s first lady Mary Pat Christie was touring the borough, Cono was cleaning up debris when she walked by. The governor’s wife asked Cono how he was doing and what could she do to help. “I told her, ‘It’s OK. We’ll rebuild, bigger and better than ever.’”Earlier this year, Gov. Chris Christie quoted Cono in his State of the State address, Cono noted with pride.For Karen, hearing the governor talk about his love for the Jersey Shore “really turned me around” and she embraced rebuilding.“We gutted the whole building; we tore up the floor,” Cono said. They had to replace everything.When they first worked on the restaurant in 2011, they installed the electrical equipment under the floor. This time they placed it about 6-feet high, hopefully high enough to spare it from any future flooding. The Trezzas decided to fill in the building’s crawlspace, a move recommended by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).They also are getting flood panels, which can be put up along the building’s front and rear areas in case of a serious storm or flood alert and hopefully will mitigate flooding.None of this was cheap, with rebuilding costing about $300,000, Karen said. “We were underinsured,” which left them looking for available U.S. Small Business Association loans for assistance.Cono is pleased with the outcome, including the new tables, equipment and brick walls. “The first time we thought we did it right,” he said. “But now it’s done right.”The push was to open in time for the all-important summer season, they said. “If we lost the summer, it could have made the difference” between coming back and not, Cono said.“The summer is huge; it was a must,” Karen said.When they reopened June 28, they were greeted by many of their loyal customers who came to show their support – and for some, to express surprise that Sea Bright Pizzeria was able to get back so soon, Karen and Cono said.During those first days, “I made a lot of pizzas, a lot,” said Cono, who ran out of dough at one point.Now it’s all about looking forward, they said.“We’re here to stay,”Cono stressed. “Bigger and stronger.”last_img read more
