first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BENTON, Ark.) — A child was killed and at least 45 other passengers, most of them children, were injured when a charter bus carrying a youth football team skidded off a highway in Arkansas early Monday and overturned, authorities said.The driver, who survived the wreck, told Arkansas State Police that he lost control of the bus in a curve on Interstate 30 near Benton, Arkansas.The crash occurred about 2:40 a.m. and Arkansas State Police said some of the injured were found trapped inside the bus.The white charter bus was carrying a youth football team from Orange Mound, Tennessee, that had played in a championship game on Sunday in Dallas, officials said.The bus was traveling from Texas to Memphis, Tennessee, when it went off the highway, down an embankment and overturned several times, the Arkansas State Police said.The injured children, who range in age from 9 to 12, were taken to hospitals in nearby Benton and Little Rock, police said. There were also adult coaches and chaperones on the bus who were hurt, police said.At least 20 patients were being treated at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock and three people were in critical condition.State police said the driver told investigators he lost control of the bus but it was not immediately clear what caused him to lose control.“On behalf of all Memphians, our hearts and prayers go out to the Orange Mound children and their families involved in this morning’s tragic bus accident in Arkansas,” Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland tweeted Monday.

first_img By Carl Stutsman – March 10, 2020 0 388 Pinterest Twitter Facebook Twitter Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Video of a deer spotted in a Mishawaka back yard has been gaining internet attention, because of the deer’s unusual attire.Not that any attire would be normal for a deer, but a bright orange hunters vest does seem an odd fashion choice. DNR officials tell WSBT that it’s likely that the deer is someone’s pet, and they hope it won’t get shot. However putting a vest on the deer may not be the best option because they also say that the deer will continue to grow and the vest will restrict its movement as it grows and cause significant trauma.They are working to tranquilize the deer in order to remove the best and send it back into the wild.

first_imgSouth Carolina’s attorney general joins offshore drilling lawsuit against Trump administrationS.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson joined a lawsuit on Monday against the Trump administration to block seismic testing for oil and gas off of the S.C. coast. Supported by Republican Governor Henry McMaster, Wilson became the first Republican attorney general to join the lawsuit, which already includes 16 S.C. cities, nine environmental groups, and nine Democratic state attorney generals. The lawsuit hopes to stop exploration for oil and gas off of the Atlantic coast, which could harm the environment and impact S.C. tourism. S.C.’s coastal communities fear that drilling could result in oil spills, which would drive away vacationers. Seismic testing is also concerning because of its harm to marine life, which the lawsuit says could kill thousands of dolphins, whales and fish. The last species of a Hawaiian land snail diesGeorge, the last known Achatinella apexfulva, a Hawaiian land snail, died on January 1 at approximately 14 years of age. He was born as a final attempt to save his species. Back in 1997, the last 10 known Achatinella apexfulva were brought into the lab at University of Hawaii to try to increase their numbers. George was the only offspring that survived. He lived alone in a cage at Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources snail lab in Kailua, Oahu. His death takes place amid a crisis for native snails on the islands of Hawaii. Hawaii’s snail population has been destroyed by a number of invasive species, including rats and Jackson’s chameleons. The native snail’s biggest threat is the rosy wolfsnail, a predatory snail from Florida introduced to the islands back in the1950’s to control agricultural pests. Joshua Tree National Park to close after visitor damage during government shutdownBeginning today, Joshua Tree National Park will close temporarily because of damaged caused by visitors during the partial government shutdown. There are few rangers at the park to prevent off-roading and since the shutdown some visitors have created new roads that have destroyed the park’s namesake tree. Since the shutdown, volunteers have stepped up to clean the 800,000-acre park. Law enforcement rangers will enforce the closure and continue to patrol the park until staff can complete the necessary cleanup and protection measures. This isn’t the first national park to close since the government shutdown. Parts of Yosemite National Park and much of Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks are closed as well.last_img read more

first_imgA prototype bus station for Johannesburg’s Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) system, known as Rea Vaya, has been unveiled at the Joubert Park Busway in the inner city, and will now be up for public scrutiny to determine whether any improvements can be made. “The platforms cost R10-million each and take eight weeks to construct.” The system, once complete, will feature dedicated and segregated bus-only lanes, as well as bus stations that are safe, comfortable, weather-protected and equipped to deal with disabled passengers. “Around two million bus trips are made every day in South Africa, comprising only 30% of transport undertaken in the country on a daily basis,” he said. “This is the first example of the BRT system in South Africa, and this station signals that we are making substantial implementation progress.” 5 November 2008 “The upgrade of our transport system will lead to far less congestion on our roads and will bring a fast, efficient, safe, affordable and accessible mode of transport to Gauteng,” Masondo said. “The stations will all be built the same, out of concrete, steel and glass, due to the cost-affordability.” Visible milestone Radebe added that there would be BRT buses running from Alexandra to Roodepoort and from Soweto to Sunninghill within a year.center_img Source: BuaNews Speaking at the launch of the prototype station in Johannesburg this week, Transport Minister Jeff Radebe highlighted that the BRT system was crucial to a success of South Africa’s transport system as a whole. Two million bus trips Johannesburg Mayor Amos Masondo said the station was the first visible milestone that the transport project was becoming a reality for South Africans. In the first phase of BRT, buses will be running to 150 stations positioned half a kilometre from each other. The buses will run every three minutes during peak times, and every 10 minutes in off-peak times, running for 18 hours a day from 5am to midnight every day. BRT systems combine the best features of rail together with the flexibility and cost advantages of road-based transport, and have the added advantage of being easier and faster to build than a light rail transport system.last_img read more

The statistics apply to 2009.The publication, titled Mortality and causes of death in South Africa: Findings from death notifications, has been released annually since 2004.The latest analysis looks at trends in mortality from 2007 to 2009 as well as selected characteristics such as demographics and social circumstances specifically related to 2009.The decline in TB deaths in particular is significant as it is the most common opportunistic infection to affect and kill HIV. The disease is known to actively accelerate the progression of HIV into Aids.In addition, in recent years TB has evolved into a drug resistant strain with a much higher mortality potential.  “Tuberculosis continued to be the most commonly mentioned cause of death on death notification forms, as well as the leading underlying natural cause of death in the country. However, the number of TB deaths has decreased since 2007,” notes the report.HIV rates seventhAs a result HIV is rated only seventh and accounts for only 3.1% out of over 572 000 deaths for the year, despite South Africa’s infection rates being among the highest in the world.It is estimated that about 5.38-million people in a population of some 50.59-million are living with the disease, as indicated in the Stats SA mid-year population estimates for 2011.Influenza and pneumonia were the second most common cause of death, followed by intestinal infectious diseases. The latter is also the main cause of death among children aged under 15 and younger.In the category for non-natural deaths, the 15 to 19 age group is most at risk from accidental or homicidal deaths, while males are also more likely than females to die of unnatural causes in general, among all age groups.The Western Cape received the dubious honour of being the province where the highest proportion of non-natural deaths occurred.Life expectancyNot surprisingly, life expectancy is slowly on the increase. The 2011 mid-year population estimate compares favourably with that for 2010, and shows that life expectancy among males, females and infants are rising, albeit slowly among some groups.The estimated life expectancy at birth is now 54.9 years for males and 59.1 years for females, with males gaining more than one year and females four years in expectancy since 2010.The infant mortality rate for 2011 is estimated at 37.9 per 1 000 live births and shows a marked improvement from 2010 when it stood at just below 47 per 1 000 births.Calling the shots on TBThe drop in mortality rates and increased life expectancy aside, TB remains the bane of the South African health scene, although it’s a treatable and curable disease. Since 1997 it has been the leading cause of death in the country.According to the Department of Health‘s Policy Framework on Multi-Drug Resistant TB (PDF, 1.3MB), South Africa ranks third among the high-burden countries that contribute to 80% of the world TB burden, only lagging behind much the larger nations of India and China.The two biggest problems for health workers are the heavy caseloads related to TB and HIV, and the high number of defaulters in relation to TB medication.Where gains are made, as the health department has recorded in the past, this is significantly reduced by patients who, for various reasons, stop using the medication before full recovery.This not only results in a drop in success rates for cured patients, but takes the disease back into an already vulnerable environment and increases the potential for drug resistance.Based on numbers, the burden on the health budget will continue to increase for some time to come. Figures released in the Tuberculosis Strategic Plan, 2007 – 2011 (PDF, 480KB) shows the incidence of TB over a decade growing by 167 %, from 269 cases per 100 000 in 1996 to 720 per 100 000 people in 2006.The proportion of people with TB who were co-infected with HIV at that time was estimated to be around 55%.Testing for TB now much quickerAt least one stumbling block is slowly being eradicated. TB testing in itself is a lengthy process which can take anything from three to six weeks – but in March 2011, Minister of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi unveiled the first of several new GeneXpert TB testing machines at the Prince Mshiyeni Hospital in Durban.The machine process the TB tests within two hours, which means patients can start treatment almost immediately.The eThekwini district was chosen for the first roll-out as it has the highest TB infection rate in the country. The health department will gradually introduce the machine at key state hospitals around South Africa.last_img read more

first_img25 November 2013Denmark’s Morten Orum Madsen claimed his first European Tour title when he captured the South African Open at the Glendower Golf Club in Johannesburg on Sunday.“To have the SA Open as my first victory on the European Tour is extremely special,” he said after securing the title. “If you look down the list of names that have won this tournament in the past there are major champions and really great champions all around, so it’s an honour.”‘An amazing feeling’“From the very first time I played in South Africa I thoroughly enjoyed it,” Madsen said. “Obviously when we Europeans come down here it’s tough to compete with South Africans, because they are used to the conditions with the altitude and weather. I always thought I would play pretty well in South Africa, but I didn’t expect to win. It’s an amazing feeling.”Madsen, the first Dane to win the South African Open, closed with a five-under-par 67 for a four-round total of 19-under-par 269, two shots better than Jbe Kruger and Hennie Otto, who went around in seven-under-par 65 and 68 respectively.It was a disappointing final round for one of the tournaments favourites, Charl Schwartzel, who led after three rounds but managed only a one-under 71 in the final round to share fourth place with Italy’s Marco Crespi on 272.Season openerThe event, which was co-sanctioned by the Sunshine Tour and the European Tour, served as the first tournament on the 2014/European Tour schedule, which meant Madsen vaulted to the top of the Race to Dubai standings. The South African Open is the first of a record eight South African tournaments on the European Tour.Madsen’s previous best result on the Tour was a tie for second earlier this year in the Madeira Islands Open in Portugal. It was also his third top 10 finish in South Africa after he placed fourth in the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa and eighth in the 2013 Tshwane Open.Roller coasterThe 25-year-old Dane was paired with 2011 US Masters champion Schwartzel, South Africa’s highest ranked golfer, for the final round and in the early going it looked like Schwartzel was going to bag his first South African Open victory.He birdied the second, third and fourth holes to move to 18-under-par, but a triple- bogey on the sixth and a double-drop on the tenth dropped him back before he sank three more birdies in a roller coaster last 18 holes. Madsen, meanwhile, was steady throughout and didn’t drop a shot on his way to a five-under-par round.Hennie Otto, the 2011 South African Open champion, looked on his way to a second national open title after four birdies on the front nine and successive birdies from the 12th to the 14th left him with a four-shot lead with four to play. However, a bogey on the 15th and a double-bogey on the 16th undid his good work.Forthcoming tournamentsThree more tournaments, co-sanctioned by the Sunshine Tour and European Tour, take place in South Africa within the next month, with the Leopard Creek Country Club hosting the Alfred Dunhill Championship from 28 November to 1 December, the Gary Player Country Club hosting the Nedbank Golf Challenge from 5 to 8 December, and Mount Edgecombe Country Club hosting The Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa from 12 to 15 December.LEADERBOARDMorten Orum Madsen (Den) 269 (-19) 67, 66, 69, 67Jbe Kruger (RSA) 271 (-17) 65, 70, 71, 65Hennie Otto (RSA) 271 (-17) 72, 66, 65, 68Marco Crespi (Ita) 272 (-16) 65, 67, 70, 70Charl Schwartel (RSA) 272 (-16) 67, 65, 69, 71Alejandro Canizares (Esp) 273 (-15) 69, 67, 69, 68Johan Carlsson (Swe) 274 (-14) 69, 70, 68, 67Trevor Fisher jnr (RSA) 274 (-14) 70, 67, 73, 64Warren Abery (RSA) 275 (-13) 68, 71, 68, 68Christiaan Basson (RSA) (-12) 66, 68, 71, 71Garth Mulroy (RSA) (-12) 70, 67, 70, 69last_img read more
