first_imgAs for the House alum, she revealed in January 2019 how the two stayed in sync amid their busy schedules. “We go out and have a lot of fun,” she explained to Us. “We were both really social people when we met, and we didn’t want to give that up when we became parents, so we’re really consistent about our time with them, but we also prioritize a couple of date nights a week.”Scroll down to see photos of Wilde and Sudeikis in the months before Us confirmed their split. This was not the only friendly get-together between the pair in recent months. In fact, they were seen at the beach on multiple occasions throughout September, as they kicked a ball around and went for another dip in the water.Us Weekly confirmed on Friday, November 13, that Wilde and Sudeikis called off their engagement after seven years. The twosome are parents of son Otis, 6, and daughter Daisy, 4.The Booksmart director and the Ted Lasso star began dating in November 2011, and he proposed in 2013.- Advertisement – Happier times?

I mean, Olivia carries the bulk of that beauty within our little duo. And the kids as well.”The actor reflected on his bond with Wilde in August too. “I just had a hunch that the second I kissed her, I wasn’t going to end up ever kissing anyone ever again,” he told Access Hollywood at the time. “So, it was like I had to be careful with it.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Avian flu can spread among cats

first_imgSep 3, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – House cats can acquire H5N1 avian influenza and pass it on to other cats, Dutch researchers reported this week.Last February two cats in Thailand reportedly died of H5N1 avian flu, but yesterday’s article in the online edition of Science apparently is the first report of cats being experimentally infected with the virus and then spreading it to other cats.Researchers sprayed H5N1 virus into the throats of three cats, according to the report by Thijs Kuiken and colleagues from Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The virus sample had been isolated from a Vietnamese person who died of the disease.The cats had a fever just 1 day after being exposed to the virus and were excreting virus after 3 days, though in relatively low amounts, the report says. One cat died 6 days after exposure.Two other cats were put in contact with the first group 2 days after the latter had been infected. In addition, the researchers fed infected chicks to three more cats. All of the additional cats became ill with signs like those of the first group.Three other cats were exposed to influenza A (H3N2), a common human strain, and stayed healthy.After the infected cats were euthanized, necropsy showed they had diffuse alveolar damage like that caused by H5N1 infection in humans and monkeys, the report says.The findings suggest that “the role of cats in the spread of H5N1 virus between poultry farms, and from poultry to humans, needs to be re-assessed,” the researchers write. In addition, “Cats may form an opportunity for this avian virus to adapt to mammals, thereby increasing the risk of a human influenza pandemic.”The Dutch report comes about 2 weeks after a Chinese expert on avian flu, Chen Hualan, reported that H5N1 virus had been detected in some pigs in China. The report triggered widespread concern because pigs can harbor human as well as avian flu viruses, creating the potential for the viruses to combine and form a new strain that could spark a human flu pandemic.When H5N1 infection was reported in cats in Thailand last February, the World Health Organization (WHO) said cats had not previously been considered naturally susceptible to flu viruses. At the time, the agency said that pigs, seals, whales, mink, and ferrets were the only mammals besides humans considered susceptible to avian flu viruses. The WHO said only pigs could harbor both avian and human flu strains.Other reports of H5N1 infections in mammals this year included cases last February in a leopard and a tiger in a zoo in Bangkok, Thailand.Kuiken T, Rimmelzwaan G, van Riel D, et al.

ATP shifts €2.7bn to hedging portfolio after longevity data change

first_imgATP, Denmark’s giant statutory pension fund, has announced it is shifting DKK20bn (€2.7bn) from its investment portfolio into its hedging portfolio to account for the latest change in its longevity projections.More detailed data — and excising US figures from the information used — has meant an adjustment in its longevity model, the DKK768bn pension fund said, with the new projections adding 3.7 years to the expected lifespan of an average newborn boy in Denmark and just under two years to that of a baby girl.Christian Hyldahl, ATP’s chief executive, said: “We have expanded the methodology and for the first time included detailed data, including causes of death, which is enabling us to provide an even more accurate estimate of the development of lifespans.”According to the new projections, 40% of girls born in Denmark now are expected to live to see their 100th birthdays, he said. The main reason for the changed projections comes from the removal of the US from the data, because causes of death there differ significantly from those observed in Denmark, ATP said.The US has historically represented about 40% of the data in the lifetime model, and therefore has had a major impact on life expectancy, it said.Scotland and Luxembourg, meanwhile, which are more like Denmark, are included in the new data set, which – capturing 330 million people – is still very large, the pension fund said.Narcotics-related causes of death are 5.5 times more common in the US than they are in Denmark, and traffic accidents are 3.5 times more likely, according to ATP.As of today, ATP is moving DKK20bn from the bonus potential — which makes up the investment portfolio — to the fund’s large hedging portfolio, which backs the pension guarantees.In accounting terms, the transfer will affect the half-year earnings negatively, but members’ total assets remain unchanged, ATP said.ATP’s hedging portfolio will have DKK677.3bn of assets after the adjustment, and the bonus potential will amount to DKK99.1bn.Back in 2016, ATP added an extra DKK9.9bn to its coverage of guaranteed pensions to account for longer average lifespans observed in the country’s population.last_img read more

Autism: Traffic pollution linked, study suggests

first_img Share 12 Views   no discussions Heavy traffic in San Diego, CaliforniaThe possibility that autism is linked to traffic pollution has been raised by researchers in California.Their study of more than 500 children said those exposed to high levels of pollution were three times more likely to have autism than children who grew up with cleaner air.However, other researchers said traffic was a “very unlikely” and unconvincing explanation for autism. The findings were presented in the Archives of General Psychiatry journal.Data from the US Environmental Protection Agency were used to work out levels of pollution for addresses in California.This was used to compare exposure to pollution, in the womb and during the first year of life, in 279 children with autism and 245 without. The researchers from the University of Southern California said children in homes exposed to the most pollution “were three times as likely to have autism compared with children residing in homes with the lowest levels of exposure”.They have previously shown a link between autism and living close to major roads.They warn that there could be “large” implications because air pollution is “common and may have lasting neurological effects”.But how?However, other researchers questioned how pollution could alter the brain’s development and lead to autism.Uta Frith, a professor of cognitive development at University College London, said: “It seems to me very unlikely that the association is causal.”She said the study did not “get us any further since it does not present a convincing mechanism by which pollutants could affect the developing brain to result in autism”. One of the challenges with this style of study is that it is difficult to account for every aspect of life which might affect the probability of developing autism, such as family history.It means the study cannot say that autism is caused by traffic pollution, merely that there could be a link between the two. Sophia Xiang Sun, from the University of Cambridge’s autism research centre, argued that cutting pollution would be a good idea anyway.“We know that traffic-related air pollution can contribute to many other diseases and conditions, and it is biologically plausible it also has a role in pathways of autism. “However, whether or not the potential association between autism and traffic-related air pollution exists, reduction of traffic-related air pollution would be good for public health.”By James Gallagher, Health and science reporter, BBC News Share Sharecenter_img HealthLifestyle Autism: Traffic pollution linked, study suggests by: – November 27, 2012 Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img read more

McIlroy wins dramatic fourth major

first_imgRory McIlroy claimed his second major title in four weeks and a third win in succession in a thrilling, weather-affected climax to the US PGA Championship on Sunday. Mickelson then birdied the 11th to join his playing partner Fowler in the lead, the pair exchanging fist-bumps as they walked to the 12th tee, and Stenson made it a three-way tie with a birdie on the 13th. Stenson had offered a prayer of thanks to the golfing Gods when his approach had just carried the water, only to three-putt the next to drop out of the lead and effectively end his chances of a first major title. McIlroy missed good birdie chances on the 11th and 12th, the latter after seeing Mickelson in the group ahead hole from 30 feet across the green for an unlikely par. But the world number one made no mistake from eight feet on the 13th to get back into a share of the lead with five holes remaining. Fowler was the first to crack under the pressure after a wayward tee shot led to a bogey on the 14th, and when Mickelson bogeyed the 16th, McIlroy was back in the outright lead for the first time since the third hole. As the light quickly faded, McIlroy delivered the killer blow with a birdie from nine feet on the 17th to enjoy a two-shot lead playing the last. Mickelson did not seem happy with being asked to make way for McIlroy on the 18th but almost holed his pitch shot for an eagle, the birdie forcing McIlroy to make par for the win. There was almost embarrassment for PGA president Ted Bishop as he dropped the lid of the trophy in the process of presenting it. McIlroy, perhaps inevitably, made a one-handed catch to save Bishop’s blushes. A torrential downpour which flooded the course and caused a delay of almost two hours meant it was a race against time to get play finished, so much so that Mickelson and Fowler stood aside on the 18th to allow the final group to tee off. McIlroy’s drive finished dangerously close to the water to the right of the fairway, but a closing par was enough for the 25-year-old to become the first player since Padraig Harrington in 2008 to win back-to-back majors, his victories in the Open Championship and US PGA also sandwiched by a first World Golf Championship win in the Bridgestone Invitational last week. Lifting the Wanamaker Trophy for the second time also makes the Northern Irishman the third youngest player after Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus to win four majors, just one less than the total won by the late Seve Ballesteros and two behind Nick Faldo. It was the fourth time McIlroy had held the 54-hole lead in a major, the first leading to heartache in the 2011 Masters when he was four ahead entering the final round at Augusta only to collapse to a closing 80. Two months later he bounced back in spectacular style to win the US Open by eight shots at Congressional before winning the 2012 US PGA by the same margin at Kiawah Island. Last month he led from start to finish at Royal Liverpool, taking a six-shot lead into the final round before going on to win by two from Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler. This time he started the day with a one-shot lead but dropped two shots in his first six holes and trailed Fowler by three as he reached the turn, Fowler having recovered from a bogey on the second with four birdies in his next five holes. The par-five 10th had cost McIlroy a double-bogey seven on Thursday but three days later he hit a fairway wood to seven feet and holed the eagle putt to get back into contention in stunning fashion. McIlroy carded a closing 68 at Valhalla to finish 16 under par, one shot ahead of Phil Mickelson after a remarkable final day which finished in near-darkness, with the lights blazing from the clubhouse behind the 18th green. Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson had been part of a three-way tie for the lead with Mickelson on the back nine but dropped shots on the closing stretch to finish two behind McIlroy on 14 under.

Three-day Florida Cup tournament bowls off today … Five teams to represent Guyana

first_imgBy Rajiv Bisnauth, in FloridaAFTER months of intense preparations, the 2017 edition of the Florida Cup Softball tournament bowls off today with ten preliminary games at the Brian Piccolo Park, Cooper City, Florida.The highly-anticipated three-day tournament has attracted a total of 14 teams, who will compete in the All-Stars and Masters categories.Six high-quality and competitive teams will compete in the All-Stars Division, while eight well-oiled units, comprising players over age 45, will do battle in the Masters segment.According to a schedule released by the South Florida Softball Cricket League (SFSCL), 27 matches will be played during the three days. Fourteen games will be played today, 11 on Saturday, including the four semi-finals.The finals for both categories will take place on Sunday at the Central Broward Regional Park and Stadium, Lauderhill, Florida.According to the schedule, Guyana will be represented by five teams; Regal All-Stars and Masters, Floodlights Open and Legends, along with Demerara Speedboat.Floodlights Legends are the defending champions in that category, but they will be hard-pressed to retain that title, since from all indications, the tournament has attracted the best softball players from Guyana and North America.While Chronicle Sport was unable to make contact with connections of the Floodlights Legends team, it was reported in the Guyana Times newspaper that president of the Guyana Floodlights Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) Ramchand Ragbeer has expressed strong optimism that both the Open and Legends teams will exceed their expectations during the tournament.On the other hand, Guyana’s top softball teams, the Regal All-Stars and Masters, are equally confident of clinching both titles.Both the Regal teams are the defending champions in the New York Softball Cricket League Independence and Legends Cup, played last July.Speaking with Chronicle Sport after yesterday’s training, player/manager of the Regal Masters team, former Guyana and West Indies off-spinner Clyde Butts, highlighted that both teams are fit and ready for the challenge ahead.“We have a very confident bunch of players, and we are confident of winning both titles,” Butts said.The Florida Cup, now in its 14th year, has developed as one of the most popular tournaments in the USA. It has created an opportunity for cricketers from any and all Softball leagues to participate in a world-class tournament, which has been held in the beautiful Sunrise State of Florida since its inception.The tournament, which has grown significantly over the years, is being held as part of Guyana’s 47th Republic Anniversary.last_img read more
