XTERRA Ireland postponed to 2015

first_img Related It’s one of the worst scenarios for any event organizer – postponement. That’s the situation for the team behind off-road triathlon, XTERRA Ireland, with the announcement at the end of last week that this year’s event – scheduled to take place on 20 July – will be postponed.“There have been a number of unforeseen logistical problems that make it impossible to deliver the event to the high standards a prestigious international event like XTERRA demands,” said Race Director Dean Watson. “We’re really disappointed and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”(With XTERRA England closing its doors across the Irish Sea in February, due to the cessation in trading of former local organiser Brave Events, XTERRA England 2014 is now back in business and recently re-opened for entry. UK-based Limelight Sports has secured rights from Vachery Estate and XTERRA HQ to deliver the XTERRA England Championship race in Cranleigh, Surrey, at the same venue and on the same date, 24 August 2014, as previously listed.)Watson and the XTERRA Ireland team are already looking forward to the future in Ireland. “We’re working hard to secure a more suitable location for next year,” added Watson. “And we’re liaising with [XTERRA owners] Team Unlimited in Hawaii to sort out a date that will fit better with the XTERRA European and World tours.”All entrants in the 2014 event, which was scheduled to take place in Killaloe, County Clare, have been contacted and made aware of the situation. They’ve been offered a choice of a full refund or a postponement until 2015.“[XTERRA] Is a fantastic format with events run round the globe,” said Watson. “We’re excited Ireland is involved in the worldwide circuit and look forward to 2015 and seeing everyone who entered this year get the chance to race.”www.xterra-ireland.comlast_img read more

Psychological abuse by a male caregiver is a powerful predictor of hypersexuality in juvenile sex offenders

first_imgA study of incarcerated juvenile sex offenders suggests that psychological abuse in childhood may have uniquely damaging effects on mental health.The findings, which appears in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, shed light on the roots of hypersexuality, which has been found to be a predictor of recidivism.“I have been doing research on various aspects of sexual aggression for the last four decades. It is clear that primary prevention is the optimal intervention strategy for reducing sexual violence,” explained Raymond A. Knight, the corresponding author of the study and professor emeritus of human relations at Brandeis University. Share Pinterest “Consequently, in my laboratory we have been focusing on identifying the developmental antecedents of various risk factors for sexual aggression. Knowledge of such antecedents is essential for designing and implementing prevention strategies.”In the study, the researchers surveyed 307 male juveniles who were about 16 years old on average and had committed at least one serious sexual crime. The participants completed assessments of abuse and other adverse childhood experiences.The researchers found those who reported higher levels of psychological abuse by a male caregiver tended to also report more problematic and excessive sexual thoughts and behaviors. The same was true of those who reported more severe sexual abuse in childhood. “Psychological abuse, especially in this case of a father toward his son, is a powerful predictor of hypersexuality and indeed in other studies from our laboratory of other prequels to sexual and nonsexual violence. It requires enhanced research scrutiny to unpack the potential causal components it encompasses,” Knight told PsyPost.Like all research, the study includes some limitations.“This is a retrospective, not a prospective study. The youths are reporting recent past experiences and behavior. All the methodological problems with such a research strategy apply,” Knight explained.“Nonetheless, we have replicated these findings with an adult sample, indicating their cross-sample consistency. Prospective studies of psychological and sexual abuse aimed at unraveling the essential causal mechanisms involved in each and examining their consequences are essential.”The study, “The Relation of Childhood Abuse Experiences to Problematic Sexual Behaviors in Male Youths Who Have Sexually Offended“, was authored by Kathryn A. Davis and Raymond A. Knight. Share on Facebookcenter_img Email Share on Twitter LinkedInlast_img read more

NEWS SCAN: Anthrax site reopens; raw chicken and Listeria ; plague, hantavirus alert

first_img New Hampshire site of anthrax exposure is reopenedThe Waysmeet Center at the University of New Hampshire has been disinfected and was reopened Apr 16, according to a Foster’s Daily Democrat report. The center is home to United Campus Ministry and the apparent source of spores that caused gastrointestinal anthrax in a woman who attended a drum circle event there last December. “We’re absolutely certain it’s safe to enter,” said Dr. Jodie Dionne-Odom, New Hampshire’s deputy state epidemiologist. The patient recently returned home from the hospital and is “walking around and talking and able to answer questions,” Dionne-Odom said, adding that her long-term prognosis is uncertain. Cleanup professionals scrubbed the entire building between March 22 and April 14, finding Bacillus anthracis spores, which cause anthrax, throughout the building, including on electrical outlets and two animal-hide drumheads. The cleanup cost $50,000, and the spores were ruled to be of natural origin. Officials believe the woman swallowed anthrax spores during a “brief aerosolization” event amid “vigorous drumming,” Dionne-Odom said.Apr 17 Foster’s Daily Democrat story Study: Raw chicken identified as source of Listeria at plantA recent 21-month study by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists at the University of Georgia concluded that incoming raw poultry rather than workers or the environment is the main source of Listeria monocytogenes contamination in commercial cooking plants. The test site was a brand-new cooking facility free of Listeria when first opened. Samples were taken regularly during the study period from potential sources of contamination, including soil and water near the facility, floors in various parts of the plant, incoming air, and raw meat. Listeria was found in floor drains within 4 months of the start of operations. The only tested source that was consistently positive for the organism was the raw meat. Study results can help facilities focus their sanitation efforts to reduce cross-contamination. The study was published in the Journal of Food Protection.Study abstractApr 19 ARS news story Apr 19, 2010center_img Plague, hantavirus alert issued for New MexicoPeople in New Mexico have been warned by state health officials to be on the alert for plague and hantavirus in animals this spring after several confirmed cases of plague were reported in cats and dogs. Plague can spread to pets when they eat infected rodents or are bitten by fleas from the rodents. The disease can then spread to humans through direct contact with infected pets or bites from the pets’ fleas. Humans can contract hantavirus through breathing in aerosolized virus from rodent urine, droppings, or saliva. The main carrier is deer mice. Among preventive steps are avoidance of sick and dead rodents and rabbits as well as their habitats, keeping pets from roaming and hunting and use of flea-control products, trapping mice and keeping them out of homes and cabins, not disturbing rodent nests and droppings without good ventilation, and seeing a vet if pets show fever, lethargy, or loss of appetite. Plague symptoms in humans include fever, chills, headache, weakness, and swelling of lymph nodes; early hantavirus symptoms include fever and muscle aches.Apr 16 release from New Mexico Department of Healthlast_img read more

COVID-19 KILLS IN MANY WAYS: 50 Iloilo suicide cases since January – IPPO

first_imgIn his Executive Order No. 183, Defensor bared the “Plan for Rehabilitation and Transformation of the Province of Iloilo to Catalyze Recovery” under the modified general community quarantine status of the province. Earlier, the DOH-6 acknowledged that physical distancing, self-isolation, working from home and loss of social contacts during the community quarantine could sink some people into loneliness and depression, and even suicide. The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, and efforts to contain it, represent a unique threat – a contagion nearly as psychological as it is physical, according to Lindero. Forty LGUs in the province reported suicide incidents, with Cabatuan, Estancia and Passi City topping the list with four followed by Calinog, Anilao, Dumangas, Igbaras, Miag-ao , Oton, San Dionisio, and Sara with two suicide cases each. c. assessment of needs and concerns; * The program shall have the following target beneficiaries:   * The Province shall implement a psychosocial response known as “Project PRIME” (Program for the Resilience of Iloilo in Mind and Emotion), which aims to restore the social functioning, and improve the coping and resilience of persons who have traumatic experiences, difficulty in handling changes, and those who are exposed to various risks.  * The program shall be implemented by Task Force PAG-ASA created under Executive Order No. 159, Series of 2020, entitled “Executive Order Approving the Creation of Task Force PAG-ASA (Provincial Agencies in Action to Prevent Suicide Among People of All Ages) for the Implementation of Project PRIME.” Last year by the month of November there were already over 70 suicide cases. What drove these people to kill themselves? The most common reasons were likely depression and problems in the family and love life, explained Lindero, citing the statements of the victims’ families. No less than Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. also recognized the need to institute responsive strategies and mechanisms that will enable the community and service providers to cope with psychosocial issues brought about by the pandemic. a. Persons, especially minors and learners, who are experiencing psychosocial difficulties, focusing on the effects of the community quarantine experience; The towns of Badiangan, Balasan, Banate, Barotac Viejo, Batad, Bingawan, Concepcion, Guimbal, Lemery, Leon, Maasin, San Enrique, San Rafael, Sta. Barbara, Tigbauan, and Tubungan each recorded one suicide incident. “This pandemic may be an added circumstance that further burdened some individuals and making them easily get depressed,” he theorized.  Various government agencies, Lindero said, must recognize the pandemic that will quickly follow it – that of mental and behavioral illness – and implement the steps needed to mitigate it. One of the three major components of Defensor’s Plan RT-PCR is a psychosocial program. It enforces the following measures: b. Monitoring tool for the stakeholders who shall be trained in administering psychosocial support. From January to Aug. 12 this year, the Iloilo Police Provincial Office (IPPO) recorded 50 suicide incidents. The IPPO is not the only one hoping there won’t be more suicide cases in the province. e. connection to information; and * The Province shall implement a program to promote and protect the psychosocial welfare of the people. It shall address the collective anxiety and emotional stress they experienced after five months of community quarantine. ILOILO – While local government units (LGUs) expend vital resources to curtail the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a shadow pandemic is bringing its own devastation, challenging authorities to come up with solutions to address another wave of health crisis. In Iloilo province, deaths caused by suicide are higher compared to COVID-related fatalities. In 2019 the IPPO recorded 78 suicide cases. Most of the victims were between 10 to 19 years old. In 2018, it recorded 65 cases. f. protection from further harm. b. OFWs and LSIs, focusing on their quarantine experience; and “Ginapadayon sang IPPO ang coordination with other agencies concerned para magatukod sang PAG-ULIKID DESK agud magtutok sa mga pwede obrahon nga mag-prevent sang padayon nga pagsaka sang suicide incidents sa probinsya,” Lindero added. “We’re only on the second quarter of 2020 but we already have 50 cases,” Lindero said. On the other hand, data from the Department of Health (DOH) Region 6 showed Iloilo province with 11 deaths from 646 COVID-19 cases as of Aug. 18. * The program shall conduct psycho-social processing-method of facilitating ventilation of emotions related to traumatic experiences, generating emotional and social issues through a helping process. c. Frontline workers who have been exposed to stressful demands of work, family, or community.  * The program shall provide psychosocial support –a range of care and support that address both psychological and social needs of individuals, families and communities, administered in a holistic and integrated development approach.  * The program shall administer Psychological First Aid-Humane, supportive, practical and immediate assistance to individuals suffering from exposure to serious stressors, which include the following:  a. intrusive and practical care; The figures are alarming, according to IPPO spokesperson Master Sergeant Francis Lindero. b. comfort and support;  * The program shall conduct monitoring of interventions, through the following monitoring tools:  a. Monitoring tool for the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) staff; and  d. helping to address basic needs; * The program shall have an evaluation towards the end of the calendar year. An evaluation tool shall be designed by the PSWDO Planning Division. Evaluation results shall serve as reference for the PSWDO in reviewing guidelines and project components for further development./PNlast_img read more

Letitia Wright on missing Coachella for “Avengers”: “I’m mad…jealous right now”

first_imgMarvel Studios(LOS ANGELES) — As Black Panther star Letitia Wright gears up for the release of the Avengers: Infinity War on Friday, where she will reprise her role of Wakandan princess Shuri, fans of the young actress are wondering if Shuri finally made it to Coachella.If you recall in Black Panther, King T’Challa took Shuri to California to share his plans for opening up a community center in Oakland. Of course, Shuri had other ideas for her trip to Cali, hoping that her big brother would instead take her to the annual music festival in Indio, California.“No, it did not happen,” Wright tells ABC Radio. “You know why I haven’t been to Coachella? Because I’m here.”Wright is referring to her recent press trip to New York, where she was promoting the upcoming Avengers. On the subject of Coachella, Wright says she did end up seeing “clips” of the performances, but still feels frustrated that she missed the big event.“I’m working hard for Avengers, you know, we have…to get our work in and then we go to L.A.,” she explains. “Yeah, we’re going to be in a room, while everybody is looking at Beyoncé or whoever else. But, I saw the clips.” Wright admits she’s still clearly upset at missing the infamous #Beychella, where Beyoncé made history as the first black woman to headline the music festival and paid homage to HBCUs with her performance.“I’m mad like jealous right now,” she said. “So, we can change the subject.”The good news is Wright is staying optimistic about the situation and looking ahead.“Yeah, it’s cool though. Next year,” she says.  No word on whether King T’Challa will officially be her escort.Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters this Friday. Marvel Studios, like ABC News, is owned by Disney.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Witness video shows police takedown of San Diego pool gunman

first_img Related Courtesy Limor Khorshidi(SAN DIEGO) — Witness video shows the moment police took down the man accused of opening fire at a birthday pool party at a San Diego apartment complex, killing one and injuring seven others who were “just mere feet from him,” police said.The suspected shooter, identified by officials as Peter Selis, 49, was shot and killed by police at the pool area of the La Jolla Crossroads apartment complex Sunday evening, San Diego police said.The witness video, filmed from above the apartment complex pool, shows two police officers with their guns drawn, firing across the pool area in the direction of the suspect.The video later shows those two officers descending on the suspect and five more officers running behind them across the blood-stained pool area.Police said the eight victims, all adults, were hospitalized. One woman later died. Two victims were in critical condition but they and the other five victims are all are expected to survive, police said.San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said Monday that “in the few days prior to this senseless act of violence” Selis and his girlfriend had split up, and his family described him as distraught and depressed.Selis, who worked at a car dealership and lived in the apartment complex, allegedly entered the pool area, sat in a lounge chair, and then called his ex-girlfriend, telling her he just shot two people, police said. Selis allegedly stayed on the phone with his ex as he continued to open fire at the victims who were “just mere feet from him,” Zimmerman said. Selis allegedly wanted his ex to listen in as he “carried out his rampage,” Zimmerman said.Police said it appears the victims were only targeted because they happened to be at the pool at that time.Resident Kaela Wong, who was in the pool’s Jacuzzi when the shooting happened, said the suspected shooter was sitting under an umbrella in the shade and “didn’t draw any attention to himself.”“He had a beer in one hand, and his gun in the other,” Wong told ABC News. “I didn’t even realize that he had a gun until he started shooting.”Wong said she thought the first shot was actually a bottle of champagne being opened. She soon realized it was gunfire but said she didn’t immediately know where it was coming from. People started falling to the ground, Wong said, and she said the suspect sat calmly with his beer, looking at his gun.Wong said she heard the alleged gunman tell pool-goers they could stay and die or they could leave.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
