HPV vaccination rates increasing in U.S., but still fall short of goals

first_img Read Full Story Rates of vaccination for the human papillomavirus (HPV) are on the rise among children in the U.S., but still fall short of national goals, according to a new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.The study was published online Sept. 14, 2020 in the journal Pediatrics. Harvard Chan School co-authors included research fellow Szu-Ta Chen and Sonia Hernández-Díaz, professor of epidemiology.The HPV vaccine is recommended for all children starting at age 11 to prevent HPV infection, which is responsible for almost all cases of cervical cancer and can also lead to cancers of the genitals or throat.The study looked at health insurance records for more than 7.8 million U.S. children from 2003 to 2017. The researchers found that, by 2017, more than half of 15-year-olds had received at least one dose of the HPV vaccine (two are required) — a significant gain from 2011, when 38 percent of girls and only 5 percent of boys had been vaccinated. But the national goal is for 80 percent of young people to receive the vaccine.Researchers also found that vaccination uptake varies by state.last_img read more

Buffalo Roman Catholic Diocese Seeks Bankruptcy Protection

first_imgPhoto: Pixabay / CC0 1.0 BUFFALO — The embattled Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo filed for bankruptcy protection Friday, taking another major step in its effort to recover from a clergy misconduct scandal that‘s been the basis for hundreds of lawsuits, Vatican intervention and the resignation of its bishop.With its filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the western New York diocese became the second in the state to file for Chapter 11 reorganization, and one of more than 20 dioceses to seek bankruptcy protection nationwide. Most recently, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, filed Feb. 19.The Buffalo diocese has faced particular turmoil in recent months, culminating in the Dec. 4 resignation of Bishop Richard Malone following a Vatican-mandated investigation. Malone had faced intense pressure from members of his staff, clergy and the public to step down amid criticism that he withheld the names of dozens of credibly accused priests and mishandled reports of misconduct against others.“We have no more urgent work than to bring about justice and healing for those harmed by the scourge of sexual abuse,” Albany Bishop Edward Scharfenberger said in a statement. “The intense emotional, mental and spiritual pain inflicted on these innocent victim survivors is a heavy burden they are forced to carry throughout their lives.” Scharfenberger, who is temporarily overseeing the Buffalo diocese, said the decision will enable the highest possible number of victims to be compensated while allowing the work of the diocese to continue. The diocese includes 163 parishes and missions across eight western New York counties.The Chapter 11 filing estimates between $10 million and $50 million in assets and between $50 million and $100 million in liabilities. The number of creditors is estimated at between 200 and 999.The diocese already has paid out about $18 million — including $1.5 million from the sale of the bishop’s mansion — to more than 100 victims under an independent compensation program established in 2018. It faces more than 240 new lawsuits filed since August, when the New York’s Child Victims Act suspended the statute of limitations to give childhood victims one year to pursue even decades-old allegations of abuse. The number of suits is expected to grow.The bankruptcy filing does not include individual parishes or Catholic elementary and high schools, which are separately incorporated, Scharfenberger said.Attorney Jeff Anderson, who represents some of the alleged victims, criticized the filing as a way to “conceal the truth about predator priests in this diocese.”He and other critics of the process say the proceedings can limit victims’ access to sensitive records with the potential to expose additional wrongdoing by priests or senior church officials.“Those secrets should come out and the men who allowed abuse to continue should be held responsible,” SNAP, the Survivors Network advocacy organization, said. “Without full knowledge of what went wrong in these cases, we cannot hope to prevent them again in the future.”The bankruptcy judge will set a deadline for individuals to file claims as the diocese begins to restructure its assets and finances.“Abuse survivors need to understand the diocese has assets and insurance,” said attorney Michael Pfau, who has represented numerous alleged victims in bankruptcy proceedings in several states. “A bankruptcy is simply a way to give the diocese a legal `time out’ from the current litigation so that one judge can ultimately decide a fair way to compensate all people who timely file a claim in the bankruptcy.”Attorney James Marsh said the proceedings “should not and will not prevent survivors from seeking justice and accountability in Buffalo.”The Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester was the first of the state’s eight dioceses to seek bankruptcy protection when it filed in September. Several others have said bankruptcy was a consideration.SNAP urged New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to intervene in church bankruptcies “in any way that he can.”More than a dozen attorneys general around the country, including in New York, have confirmed investigations or reviews of clergy abuse in the wake of a shocking Pennsylvania grand jury report last year. The report asserted that about 300 priests had abused at least 1,000 children in the state over seven decades.

Burlington welcomes Liz Robert’s new bicycle company May 18

first_imgMayor Bob Kiss, CEDO Director Larry Kupferman, Local Motion Director Chapin Spencer, Kelly Devine, Executive Director of the Burlington Business Association and others will officially welcome Liz Robert’s new business, Terry Precision Bicycles, to the Queen City, with a bike tour of the City tomorrow, May 18. The event coincides with Way 2 Go Week, and kicks off with a press conference at 11AM inside the first floor gallery at the JDK Building, 47 Maple Street. At the news conference Mayor Kiss and Kupferman will present Robert with a brand new ‘They Chose Burlington’ poster, one of a series of cobranded images CEDO has developed to acknowledge several exceptional Burlington companies and their commitment to the local economy. The Mayor will also issue an official proclamation declaring a Day of Recognition of Terry Precision Bicycles.Celebratory Ride: At 11:20pm, the Mayor, Robert and others will hit the streets for a casual ride around the Queen City. Event organizers encourage members of the public and the press to join this celebratory ride.“I’m pleased to recognize a significant and welcome edition to Burlington’s business community. Terry’s move to Burlington, is yet another ‘They Chose Burlington’ story,” says Burlington Mayor Bob Kiss. “I appreciate Liz Robert’s decision to come here and the investment in our community this represents.” Burlington Business Association Executive Director Kelly Devine echoes that sentiment. “The Burlington Business Association is happy to welcome Terry Cycles to Burlington. Lets hope more folks follow their lead and ‘Choose Burlington’ this year,” says Devine.Founded in 1985 by mechanical engineer Georgena Terry, the company specialized in bicycles and apparel designed specifically for female cyclists. Robert acquired a majority stake in the company in 2009, and began a push to move the company to Vermont. Burlington is the ideal location for an entrepreneurial company with great brand potential. So many small companies, taking a grassroots and pragmatic approach to business, have leveraged its creative energy, an energy emanating from the fusion of independent, compassionate minds and the powerful visual aesthetic of this place,” says Terry. “People all over pay attention to what goes on in Burlington: this vibrant, quirky urban epicenter of Vermont where so many emotionally charged, socially purposeful, legend brands are born. It makes so much sense to me to tell the genuine story of Terry, the Original Women’s Bicycling Company and grow the Terry brand from here.”“The Burlington area is home to a growing active outdoor industry. It’s no coincidence that the region is often cited as one of the healthiest in the country,” highlights Chapin Spencer. “Attracting businesses that support active outdoor lifestyles is good for our economy and good for our health. Local Motion is thrilled Terry has moved downtown, adjacent to the bike path. Together, we’ll continue to grow Vermont’s bicycling culture.”Networking Lunch & Office Tour: After the ride, lunch will be available in the JDK gallery. Pre-registration for the lunch is required. Register at: is external). Tours of the Terry offices will also be available.Source: CEDO. 5.17.2010last_img read more

We will be seeking to work closely with the SSV to establish a working relationship with policymakers and other stakeholders to discuss those issues in more detail and to ensure that the market opening is successful.“This includes supporting the licensing requirement for all sports betting operators to be a member of an integrity monitoring body, and where the Dutch law specifically mentions IBIA as a best practice model.”last_img read more

Firefighter killed in 9/11 identified, laid to rest 18 years later

West Virginia tries to bounce from awful 2013

first_imgPitt transfer Rushel Shell should help the Mountaineers running attack. (Courier File Photo)Coach Dana Holgorsen needs no reminder about the lack of success he’s seen on the field since ushering in West Virginia’s move to the Big 12.Hired to make the Mountaineers a national fixture, Holgorsen brought immediate success with a Big East title and resounding Orange Bowl win over Clemson in the 2011 season. But the last two years mostly have been a disappointment and Holgorsen is hoping some changes to his defensive staff can help bring immediate results.West Virginia is 11-14 since moving to the Big 12 in 2012. The Mountaineers must show significant improvement on both sides of the ball to bounce back from a 4-8 finish — the school’s first losing season since 2001 — that included November losses to lowly Kansas and Iowa State.“We need to stay the course, continue to develop our talent, continue to recruit better, and then we’ll win those games,” said Holgorsen, who is entering the third year of a six-year contract that pays him at least $2.7 million in salary and bonuses. “Hopefully we can put a season together that everybody will be proud of.”He’ll have to do that by withstanding a tough early schedule, score points with no consistent returning playmakers on offense and get more out of a defense that’s been simply porous for two straight seasons.Athletic director Oliver Luck said last December that while he believed in the abilities of the coaching staff, he expects better results. Holgorsen is aiming for that in part by shoring up the number of players who will be ready at each position.“The chemistry and the continuity right now is better than it’s been since I’ve been here,” Holgorsen said.___Here are 5 things to watch for from the Mountaineers in 2014:BANKING ON TRICKETT: Holgorsen anointed Clint Trickett as starting quarterback in June. Holgorsen said Trickett, who had offseason shoulder surgery, “is light years ahead of where he was last year” after transferring from Florida State and becoming eligible to play immediately. Although he was mediocre at times in seven starts and threw just seven touchdown passes with seven interceptions, Trickett led the Mountaineers to a 30-21 win over Oklahoma State. His backups are Paul Millard, who started three games last year, and junior college transfer Skyler Howard.CROWDED BACKFIELD: Five running backs are looking to replace departed 1,000-yard rusher Charles Sims. Pittsburgh transfer Rushel Shell sat out last season after rushing for 641 yards as a freshman for the Panthers in 2012. Junior Andrew Buie, who left school last fall and re-enrolled in January, led the Mountaineers in rushing in 2012. Junior Dustin Garrison, the top ball carrier in 2011, is back after two injury-plagued seasons. Dreamius Smith was the second-leading rusher behind Sims with 494 yards. Wendell Smallwood, who ran for 221 yards as a freshman, is focused on football again after witness tampering charges against him were dropped last month in a case in Delaware.CHALLENGING START: West Virginia’s schedule is front-loaded with tough tests against Alabama on Aug. 30 in Atlanta, the Sept. 6 home opener against FCS runner-up Towson, a Sept. 13 road game against a Maryland team that beat West Virginia 37-0 last year, and the Big 12 opener at home Sept. 20 against Oklahoma.SHORE UP THAT DEFENSE: West Virginia surrendered 33 points per game last season, ranking 99th in the Bowl Subdivision. Tony Gibson was promoted to defensive coordinator after Keith Patterson left for Arizona State and the Mountaineers hired former longtime Penn State assistant Tom Bradley to oversee the defensive line. West Virginia must replace six starters from the unit that allowed 455 yards per game and surrendered four second-half leads in its final six games.UNHAPPY RETURNS: West Virginia will try to infuse some life in its return game. The Mountaineers averaged a league-low 3 yards on punt returns and 18.6 yards on kickoff returns in 2013. Freshman quarterback William Crest is among those who could get some special teams work, although for now Holgorsen is looking at wide receivers Jordan Thompson and Mario Alford for returning punts, and running back Wendell Smallwood, Alford and Thompson on kickoffs.last_img read more

Antetokounmpo poised to handle ball, bigger load, for Bucks

first_imgMILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo has a new contract extension and likely a lot more responsibility once the Milwaukee Bucks open the season.The athletic, 6-foot-11 matchup nightmare will start with a full season as a full-time ball-handler. It’s the latest step forward for a fourth-year player who has come a long way from the raw 19-year-old rookie from Greece picked 15th overall by the Bucks in 2013.“Since Giannis has arrived, he has done everything he can possibly do to become the best player he could become,” general manager John Hammond said. “We have full faith and confidence in Giannis (that it’s) not going to stop.”Antetokounmpo averaged 16.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists last season. He really took off after the All-Star break when coach Jason Kidd had him take over running the offense.Antetokounmpo finished with five triple-doubles over the season’s final two months. The Bucks rewarded him in September with a four-year extension worth $100 million.The young forward has grown up in Milwaukee, where Hammond even taught him how to drive a few years back. Antetokounmpo and fellow forward Jabari Parker have shown that they have the maturity to handle the spotlight of being franchise cornerstones.Parker, who is in the third year of his rookie deal, figures to get an extension a year from now.“The thing we focus on is just to win. We win games, everything else will take care of itself,” Antetokounmpo said.Parker is well-spoken and passionate about social justice issues. He is focused and intense, but quieter than Antetokounmpo in front of the microphones after a game.Antetokounmpo alternates between smiles and scowls on the floor. He’s always up for a laugh, just like at his first preseason meeting with reporters in September when he cracked this knock-knock joke:“Who’s there?” reporters answered.“Obama,” Antetokounmpo said, referring to the President.“Obama who?“Oh by myself,” replied Antetokounmpo in song, to the tune of the Eric Carmen ballad, “All by Myself .”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Increase in bear infanticide linked to hunting

Proc. R. Soc. B 282: 20141840. Citation: Increase in bear infanticide linked to hunting (2014, November 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from (c) 2014 The 21-year study focused on the movements of 180 female Scandinavian brown bears (Ursus arctos) over 13,000 km2 of rolling, forest landscape in south-central Sweden. The research was conducted primarily to investigate the population dynamics of large, long-lived mammals. Bear hunting harvests in the area were monitored and the female bears were tagged with radio transmitter implants from 1990 to 2011. During the study, varying degrees of ‘hunting pressure’ were observed. Bear-hunting season lasts from late August or early September until October 15th or when the quota for a designated area has been reached. Only solitary bears, both male and female, are hunted. Family groups, including solitary cubs and yearlings, are protected from hunting. Female brown bears provide long periods of maternal care (between 1.5 and 4.5 years). The long periods of care reduce the availability of reproductive females. Unlike their North American counterparts, Scandinavian brown bears have an increased propensity towards sexually selected infanticide (SSI). In cases of limited mating possibilities, it may be advantageous for a member of a sex (usually male) to eliminate the offspring of another member of the same sex to prompt a member of the opposite sex into a reproductive cycle. A female brown bear may become receptive only two to four days after losing her young during the mating season. As expected, the bear population declined during times of high hunting pressure and grew under low hunting pressure . The analysis of the data indicated that the 2 percent decline in fecundity rates (reproductive rates of a population) was greater than expected, estimated after a period of high hunting pressure. Cub survival is important to population growth, with cub mortality reaching 81 percent over the course of the study. The cub loss is mostly attributed to SSI during mating season (mid-May to mid-July). The data showed that without SSI , and with other factors for survival being equal, cub survival would be 81percent higher. This illustrates that other factors besides hunting are responsible for the overall local population decline and that male behaviour appears to have an important effect on population dynamics. The high hunting pressure resulted in 57 percent of males harvested in 2006–2011, compared with 52 percent in 1990–2005 (low hunting pressure). With more males bears killed, there was a higher likelihood of other male bears encountering cubs and females with cubs that are not related to the male, and thus SSI occurrence increased, causing the larger decrease in bear population. Other indirect causes for the bear population decline due to hunting are also influenced by the male bear population. In order to counter SSI, female bears (with cubs) during the mating season avoid good habitats in favour of those in close proximity to humans. This has detrimental effect on the diet of the bear and could subsequently influence female reproductive output, lowering the fecundity. The study hopes these new findings will be used when establishing hunting quotas and management policies.last_img read more
