Spread Of Norovirus Incredibly Fast

 

Food preparation is serious business because intense vomiting is no way to end a meal. Chipotle serves as a harsh lesson about the spread of disease. An infected person can transmit the virus, so can infected food or water, also touching contaminated surfaces. Employees and customers both can spread the disease, even while taking safety precautions.

 

In December, there was an outbreak of norovirus at Chipotle at Boston College in Brighton, Massachusetts. The virus rapidly spread through the dorm, and 141 students were infected. The restaurant closed for two weeks for a thorough cleaning, then reopened.

 

Chipotle has been responsible for 500 cases of norovirus and E. coli since July. The company is under criminal investigation for the way it handled its food. As a result, Chipotle has announced new safety procedures in its supply chain, including safety testing and contaminant screening. The company will continue to use locally grown ingredients and more organics. There will be no antibiotics or growth hormones.

 

Dr. Sergio Cortes points out that there is no certainty when it comes to the avoidance of contamination, there are some common sense rules that actually help stop the spread of disease. Food handling requires that employees wash their hands often. Although employees should stay at home when they are sick, food handlers generally can’t afford to do this, so they work anyway. This is a double edged sword when it comes to norovirus and E. coli.

Freshpet Is Revolutionizing Your Dog’s Diet

Year after year we learn what is beneficial for our dogs to eat and what is not. Most of us grew up with a four legged garbage disposal next to our dinner table so learning that there are certain foods that are bad for our dogs is surprising to say the least. They seem to gobble up that fatty pork roast so how could it be bad for them?

Obesity is an ever present epidemic in the canine world similar to our human world and since we’ve deemed them our best friends, shouldn’t we be looking out for their health as much as we do ours? That’s exactly what Freshpet intends to do. They want to make appetizing, appealing, but still healthy kibble for our furry friends. While only using fresh ingredients, saying a big “NO” to preservatives and additives, Freshpet has created a line of dog food so delectable you’ll possibly envy Fido when it’s dinner time.

Freshpet is not the first dog food company to take a step in this game changing arena of healthy pet food but they’re still trailblazing and proving to be a worthy rival of bigger household names such as Purina. Even Blue Buffalo, who is arguably one of the first to start this path to making dog food healthy, is being given a run for their money.

However, Freshpet is going to have to come up with something really innovating to knock Beneful from the top of the healthy pet food pyramid. Beneful has an advantage of being a household name and people love to buy from a brand that is familiar to them so it is almost no contest that their healthy dry and wet food alternatives are still and will continue to be popular.

There are many options to choose from and they have even upped the ante by rolling out a healthy snack food line for pets. It will be very interesting to see how Freshpet intends to match Beneful’s presence in the market. When you’re offering ingredients like beef, chicken, green beans, delicious carrots, and even protein packed eggs it is going to take a lot of ingenuity to work up the ladder but most specifically the ability to sway into an owner’s heart who only wants the best for their four legged companion.

 

Soros Shares His Opinion Of Trump

In the coming year, Americans will see the election of a new president. Incumbent president Barack Obama will not be running for office again as he is prohibited from doing so under constitutional amendments. This leaves the field open for both the Democratic and Republican nomination for president. Each party is expected to nominate a new potential candidate for president. One of the front runners for the Republican nomination for president is businessman Donald Trump. Trump is one of the richest men in the United States. His candidacy for president has been watched closely both at home and by many people living abroad.

One person who has felt compelled to share his opinions of Donald Trump is fellow business executive George Soros. Soros is a native of Hungary who immigrated to the United States and become a citizen. Since moving here, he has earned a huge fortune that has been based on his own reading of international markets, especially those in the United Kingdom where his betting on a bear market allowed him to earn much of his fortune. He has been able to observe both areas closely and now shares his thoughts on the candidacy of Trump to an audience that listened to him as he talked about the many ways that he feels the candidacy is dangerous at a gathering of many leaders and interested observers at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

In George Soros‘ opinion, Trump has done a great deal of damage to the United States with his various views on the immigration of Muslims. He thinks that Trump does not understand the situation very well and has made proposals that are not good for Americans as well as not good for those who are fighting Islamic extremism. In the last few months, many Islamic migrants have fled to Europe for various reasons. The result has been that many European governments have found themselves confronting large numbers of unexpected Muslim migrants in their societies that they may not have the resources to care for properly.

Forbes billionaire Soros believes that Trump’s opinions about whether or not Muslims should be allowed to move to the United States have not been helpful to the situation in Europe nor have such statements illustrated in him the qualities that may be necessary for someone to run for office in the United States. Soros fears that Trump’s statements may suggest that Americans dislike Muslims and thus lead Muslims to think of joining ISIS, the Islamic extremist group. He feels that Trump’s statements on this issue were rash at best and may help ISIS recruit new members as they view the west as unwelcoming to them and not right for their specific cultural needs.

Dr. Sergio Cortes Visits Xerem as he Elucidates on the Zika Virus

Sergio Cortes, the state health secretary, was in Xerem, Duque de Caxias. He was surveying the parts affected by floods and camps accommodating the municipal population. The state government was running a dengue hydration center at the Xerem hospital that had been in operation for some time. The dengue hydration center had a capacity to cater for 300 people in a day. According to Sergio Cortes, it was preventative step by the department of health to help the municipality from dengue mosquito proliferation due to the huge chunks of garbage that had accumulated in the city.
Sergio Cortes held a meeting with Camillo Junqueira, the municipal health secretary and Conception Mendoca, the coordinator of the National Health Force. In the meeting, it was agreed that the state should deliver a second Calamity kit and 3000 antibiotics tablets to counter leptospirosis. All the steps that were taken by State Department of Health and the Epidemiological Surveillance teams in the region were aimed at preventing the outbreak of diseases arising from contaminated water like hepatitis A, leptospirosis, and diarrhea.
The initial batch of samples collected in the area by the Health Surveillance Secretariat of the state was not satisfying according to the Central Laboratory Noel Nutels. As a result, teams disinfected the water on a daily basis with the Department of Health recommending all the people to do the same. The government delivered 10,000 bottles of sodium hydrochlorite to Caxias. The people in the camps were advised to use bottled water for drinking and food preparation. Sergio Cortes urged those donating to Xerem to include bottled water.
Recently, Sergio Cortes discussed about the appropriate clothing for summer, a period associated with high temperatures and a lot of sweating. The heat causes people to sweat at high rates leaving them uncomfortable. For this reason, the medical expert talks about the right clothes to wear to avert sweating during summer. Sergio Cortes recommends light colored clothes that fit well. He adds that dark colored and tight clothes retain more heat and do not give the skin enough room to breathe. This information was originally mentioned on Sergio Cortes’ Website.
The outbreak of Zika virus in Brazil has left many people confused. Recently, Dr. Sergio Cortes explained about the disease, its symptoms and ways of treating the disease. According to him, Zika first emerged in the African continent in countries such as Tanzania in the 40s before spreading to other countries. Zika started to spread in Latin America in 2015. The symptoms of the disease include fever and muscle aches. Its treatment is symptomatic meaning that there is no specific treatment for the disease.

Why George Soros Thinks The European Union Will Collapse

George Soros is a Hungarian Billionaire known as the father of hedge funds. He has accumulated substantial wealth and the 85-year-old spends most of his time spreading his ideologies.

Soros in a recent interview seems convinced the European Union is on the verge of collapse. Soros says German chancellor has delayed the collapse with her timely resolve of the migrant crisis.

The Migrant crisis comes hot on the heels of the Greek debt crisis that divided the European Union. The migrant crisis, Soros observed, has risked every fundamental idea of a European Union since it prevents free travel.

Some of the Paris attackers were shown to have travelled from Greece. It is an essential European Union right that is now being abused by terrorists disguised as refugees. They have taken advantage of the European Union and its structures with devastating effect.

George Soros said the decision by German to take in 1 million refugees was a step in the right direction. Soros said if given jobs and a decent home, the refugees will become productive members of the society.

George Soros says the European Union was founded on the idea of an open society. It is an idea being challenged by both nationalists and East European leaders. The Polish president and Hungarian president are already enacting measures to keep Muslims away and have launched scathing attacks against Merkel in Brussels.

In the interview, Soros said Putin took advantage of the Syrian crisis to increase the standing of Russia on a world stage. According to Soros, it made Obama look weak. Russia has already installed anti-aircraft guns in Syria, and the US must now share the airspace with Russia.

The current desire by the UK to quit the European Union is wrong. According to Soros, half of UK exports go to the European Union. It’s in its best interests to stay there.

George Soros was born in Hungary in 1930.The 85-year-old is Holocaust survivor and escaped with his family to London. Here, he studied economics at the London school of economics and later moved to New York to try his luck.

In New York, he founded Soros Fund, which was to, became the world’s largest hedge fund. He is a well-known philanthropist who founded the Open Society Foundations in 1979.It spreads the ideas of equality and peace around the world.

The Story of Yeonmi Park

It is a well known fact that North Korea is under an oppressive regime that have prevented the population from experiencing universal human rights. Under this particular regime, it is even illegal to leave the country to venture abroad into China or South Korea. Every years, thousands of North Koreans have decided to defect to pursue freedom that was never given in North Korea. One woman in particular Yeonmi Park, who is a North Korean defector, stated that she did not even know what freedom was. Yeonmi Park left Korea in 2007 when she crossed the frozen Yalu River with her mother. This event occurred when she was only 13 years of age. Yeonmi is a young defector that now speaks out against North Korea and has involved herself with several organizations to try and assist fellow North Korean Defectors. Yeonmi Park has recently sat down to discuss her story as to why she became a defector. She explains that her family was well connected and wealthy in the 90s up until the North Korean economy crashed. After the economy crash, Ms. Park’s father was forced to sell contraband to China in order to have an acceptable income to raise a family with. However, years late, Ms. Park’s father was caught and was thrown into a labor camp while his family was shunned and left to starve. Yeonmi Park explains that for this reason, her and her mother escaped the country in order to seek a new life that had more freedom. Yeonmi Park states that because she lived outside the law, she was subjected to hunger and constant abuse. Though her father joined her and her mother outside of the North Korean border, her father died months later due to untreated cancer. Yeonmi Park is dedicated to informing the public of how truly oppressive the North Korean regime is. Her goal is to have North Korean defectors speak out on Youtube to the United Nations as well as to other organizations for the purpose of spreading awareness of her cause. Ms. Park states that she will continue to fight for human rights as she experienced the lack of human rights herself.

Visual Search Is Coming to an Internet near You

A recent article in the MIT Technology Review has caused some people to look at existing technologies in a new way. Search engines have been around for some time now. In fact, they date back to around 1982. And what’s really amazing is that they haven’t really changed much in all that time. As the article points out, they’re mainly focused on taking in text, running it through a database, and outputting results based on keyword matching. The biggest innovations there have come from having actual humans double check the results in order to help machines match questions and answers together. There’s little real intelligence involved, just simple pattern matching.

This is all set to change thanks to a field of artificial intelligence known as deep learning. This is being combined with another technique known as visual search in order to create the next generation of search engine. There’s two things which really sets this new type of search technology apart from existing techniques. The first is that it’s based on visual data such as images or pictures taken with one’s phone. And the second is that it constantly makes use of actual intelligent analysis. Even if that intelligence is of the artificial variety.

Obviously this is a lot more computationally taxing than the current style of simply sending text into a database. But various companies are experimenting with different solutions to the problem of how processor intensive the techniques are. A company called Slyce has one of the most promising takes on it though. They use a method of cloud computing called distributed processing in order to work with deep learning and visual search techniques. The company first created a system of advanced data servers that they store and maintain locally.

Slyce then created a special API which allows programs to tie into their servers through the Internet. This essentially allows Slyce’s servers to act like a dual core processor. Less powerful devices like smartphones or online catalog systems can handle the taking of and trading off of images. But the actual processing and analysis of that visual data is handled by the virtual processors at Slyce. The end result is systems which can handle visual processing that might well be dozens or even hundreds of times more computationally intense than they would otherwise be able to process. And thanks to the nature of Slyce’s easy to use infrastructure it can be added to almost any existing program.
