See y’all in New Orleans!”Spafford is set to head out on their Summer Vacation Tour starting a few weeks later with a show at Fine LineMinneapolis, MN on May 22nd.

Read Full Story During flu season, sufferers are advised to prevent spreading the virus by covering their mouths when coughing or sneezing and by washing their hands. But these methods may not be enough, according to a new study by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers and colleagues.According to the study, which was published March 7, 2013 in PLOS Pathogens, infected people exhale flu virus particles of varying sizes, and the smallest particles contained the highest concentration of flu virus. These small particles would not be expected to be stopped by traditional flu hygiene methods.“Our study suggests that flu virus in small particles (less than 0.5 microns) may play a larger role than traditionally thought in the spread of influenza,” said James McDevitt, instructor in HSPH’s Exposure, Epidemiology, and Risk Program. It had previously been assumed that larger particles were associated with flu transmission, he said.The researchers also found that by wearing masks, study participants infected with the flu had a 25 fold decrease in the amount of large virus particles they exhaled compared with those not wearing a mask. Decreases for small particles were a more modest 2.8 fold reduction.While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control recommends that doctors and hospitals provide their flu patients with face masks, little is known about the infectiousness of exhaled particles and the effectiveness of masks in preventing their spread.
Researchers at Notre Dame discovered a new class of antibiotics to fight disease-causing bacterium such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).Dr. Mayland Chang and Dr. Shahriar Mobashery, both professors in the department of chemistry and biochemistry, spearheaded the research that led to the discovery of these new antibiotics, called oxadiazoles. Oxadiazoles are able to overcome MRSA’s antibiotic resistance, Mobashery said. Keri O’Mara | The Observer “The antibacterial oxadiazoles were discovered by in silico … search [a search using computers] for compounds that would bind to penicillin-binding protein 2a, PBP2a, of MRSA,” he said. “The physiological function of PBP2a is critical for survival of MRSA. The drug class disrupts the normal physiological process of PBP2a, hence MRSA dies.”This is first time that oxadiazoles have been described as antibiotics, Mobashery said. He said they can also be used to fight other bacteria. Bacteria that are stained in the laboratory can be classified as Gram-negative and Gram-positive, and oxadiazoles work against the Gram-positive species, Mobashery said.Chang said this discovery comes at an important time, especially because of MRSA’s resistance to other antibiotics.“MRSA can cause life-threatening infections,” she said. “Resistance to antibiotics continues at an alarming rate, thus new antibiotics are urgently needed. We have been working on understanding resistance mechanisms and ways to intervene.”Despite the new discovery, antibiotic research still needs to be expanded, according to Chang. She said many pharmaceutical companies have stopped antibiotic research because antibiotics act quickly against disease.“So the financial incentives are not there, compared to drugs that are taken for the rest of one’s life and do not cure the disease, such as cholesterol-lowering medications and diabetes drugs,” she said.Even still, both professors plan to continue their research on oxadiazoles, Chang said.“We are continuing research to understand how the oxadiazoles work and if resistance develops to the oxadiazoles,” she said. “We are also working in new classes of antibiotics.”While the research process can be slow, the rewards are great, Mobashery said. He said he has studied antibiotics and MRSA for 25 years and these discoveries hold a lot of promise.“These discoveries will be built on for the future direction of research for both understanding of the resistance mechanisms and for discovery of new antibiotics,” he said.Chang credited the University as an important supporter of her research.“Notre Dame provides the infrastructure to do research. We have wonderful animal facilities that make this research possible all the way from the computer to animal models of infection,” Chang said.Tags: Antibiotics, MRSA, research, Stapylococcus aureus
December 1, 2004 Regular News A more detailed look at tentative revisions to The Florida Bar’s advertising rules and dealing with the request of two sections to advocate for a repeal of the state law banning adoptions by gays will be on the Bar Board of Governors’ December 10 agenda.The board, meeting in Naples, also will get several two-year-cycle procedural rule amendment packages.The Advertising Task Force 2004 completed its preliminary recommendations in September and sent them to the board for review. The proposals are also posted on the Bar’s Web site at www.flabar.org.The board took a quick look at its October meeting and made two requests. It asked the task force to present options on requiring screening of advertisements before publication or broadcast and for options on language that creates unjustified expectations in ads, a frequent point of contention on advertising appeals.(The task force met last month and drafted language for those alternatives, which have been posted on the Bar’s Web site with the panel’s other recommendations. Panel members noted that providing the alternative language doesn’t mean they endorse them, but only that they are providing options requested by the board.)The board is scheduled to review the tentative proposals in more detail in December and make any final requests or suggestions. The task force is taking public comment January 20 during the Bar’s Midyear Meeting, and then will begin working on the final draft of its recommendations.Of major interest are the three options the task force presenting on whether the 30-day waiting period on direct mail solicitations in personal injury cases should be extended to criminal cases. The task force has also recommended a slight expansion of the “safe harbor” content of what can be included in ads that don’t have to be submitted for Bar review.While the board has asked for options on requiring review of ads before they are published, the task force has recommended a voluntary program where lawyers would be immune from disciplinary prosecution if they get Bar approval before the ad is printed or aired.Other recommendations include requiring out-of-state lawyers advertising in Florida to comply with the Bar’s advertising rules.The issue over the state’s statutory ban on gay adoption was raised by the Family Law and Public Interest Law sections. They want the law repealed and the state to adopt a best-interest-of-the-child standard.The request was considered by the Bar’s Legislation Committee in August which asked the sections to postpone their request after committee members expressed concern the matter raised deep philosophical and emotional divisions within the Bar. That’s one of the few grounds the Bar can use to deny a section’s lobbying request.At the time, the Equal Opportunities Law Committee and the Legal Needs of Children Committee endorsed the two sections’ position, and the Legislation Committee asked that other sections be approached, and questioned about whether they saw the issue as divisive.Since then, the Elder Law Section and the Florida Association for Women Lawyers have added their support. The Young Lawyer Division Board of Governors also debated the issue at its November 5-6 meeting and recommended not allowing the sections to lobby the issue because of divisiveness (see story above).Opponents, who have largely contacted Bar leaders and written letters-to-the-editor to the Bar News, generally contend that the gay adoption issue is a moral issue and hence not appropriate for Bar action. They also say that even if the sections, as required, specify only they and not the Bar at large are advocating for the repeal, their position will still carry the imprimatur of the entire Bar.The sections contend that gay adoptions are supported by at least 11 germane mainstream organizations, including the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association. They also note that academic studies have concluded there is no harm done to children when they are adopted by gay parents.The board will review five sets of rule amendments as this year’s two-year-cycle procedural rule reviews: small claims, probate, civil procedure, family law, and judicial administration.The Rules of Judicial Administration report does not include a controversial provision on circuit chief judges’ oversight of court clerks. That provision, which has been tabled in the committee, was being considered separately from the two-year-cycle amendments.

The number of lawsuits filed in Virginia District Courts against credit unions over the accessibility of their websites has risen from nine to more than 20 in the last four weeks, court documents show.All of the suits — at least 23 at the time of publication — were filed by the same two law firms on behalf of the same plaintiff. Many are so new the defendants haven’t yet filed formal responses to the complaints against them. Four appear to have already been voluntarily dismissed.In terms of size, the defendants run the gamut. Some are small, like Portsmouth Schools Federal Credit Union, which has $2.1 million in assets and about a thousand members. Others are huge, including Navy Federal Credit Union, which has $84 billion in assets and 7.4 million members. Navy Fed’s case was dismissed on November 3.“Navy Federal is committed to serving the needs of all of our members. Providing them equal access to all of our products and services and our digital platforms is of upmost importance,” a Navy Federal spokesperson told CU Times. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »
