Records show that over the past years since we introduced the medication on a regular basis, all the infants are negative. We hope we can continue with that,” she said.Frampton also noted that over 95 percent of pregnant women are accepting to do the HIV test during pregnancy.“We want to see 100 percent because HIV testing is voluntary but with education people understand why they have to test,” Frampton said.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Tweet HealthLifestyleLocalNews 100 percent success in HIV prevention among children born from infected mothers by: – November 24, 2012 Sharelast_img read more

Geminids to light up the night thru next weekend

Posted on by

first_imgSoutheastern, IN—If you have had your eyes towards the night sky over the last few days,  you might have noticed a few bright shooting stars go across the sky.  Well, that is because The Geminids meteor shower, one of the best meteor showers of the year, peaks during the night of December 14 and shows up to 100-150 meteors per hour in dark sky. But has lots of meteors to see in the week before.  On a dark night, free of moonlight, you can easily spot 50 or more meteors per hour.Although this is one shower you can successfully watch in the (late) evening – the best viewing is typically around 2 a.m., no matter where you are on Earth. Often, in the hours after midnight and under a dark sky, you can see 50 or more meteors per hour. Rates of 120 per hour have been reported at the peak, under optimum sky conditions.Remember, meteors in annual showers typically come in spurts and lulls, so give yourself at least an hour of observing time. Simply sprawl out on a reclining lawn chair, look upward and enjoy the showMeteor showers don’t require binoculars or telescopes to view — just your bare eyes. Find a comfortable spot to lie on the ground, far away from lights and ideally in a dark-sky area. Bring a blanket and dress warmly if you’re in cold weather. Give your eyes about 20-30 minutes to adjust to the dark, then sit back and enjoy the show.last_img read more

Hugh Bowden cutting back after 30 years at The American

Posted on by

first_img Latest posts by Stephen Fay (see all) Bio Clued in – May 29, 2019 Latest Posts Hugh BowdenELLSWORTH — If you were in charge of seating arrangements for The Ellsworth American’s editorial department, sports department, ombudsman, ace photographer, associate proofreader, corporate trustee, Open Meeting Law expert and newsroom mentor you would need only one chair.Hugh Bowden — multitalented, multifaceted and, goodness knows, multitasking — is cutting back after 30 years to spend more time with his grown daughters, his grandchildren and his music.Did we mention he composes and performs music? Or that he’s a voracious reader who regularly consumes a novel a night?At the end of the month, Bowden, 72, will focus on editorials and The American’s award-winning editorial page. Sports reporter Taylor Vortherms, who joined The American full time in 2013 after graduating from the Missouri School of Journalism, will succeed Bowden as sports editor.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“My three decades here at The American have flown by,” said Bowden. “That’s what happens when you love the job that you do and the people with whom you do it. Those feelings haven’t changed. But aging and health issues sometimes force one to reorder his priorities, and while I am still healthy, I want some increased time with my family and friends and the opportunity to take on some other activities that I enjoy doing.“Under this new arrangement,” said Bowden, “I’ll still be able to contribute to the newspaper I love and maintain my association with my colleagues. So it’s the best of both worlds.”Almost a native of Brooklin, Bowden’s Hancock County roots run deep.He was born in Washington, D.C., but his mother, Linnie, soon moved back to her Maine hometown with baby in tow, and two more brothers — Bill, now deceased, and Bob — arrived over the next four years. As did his beloved stepdad, Winslow Bowden, who married Linnie after her divorce and raised the three boys as his own, formally adopting them when they were in their late teens.Bowden and his brothers all graduated from Brooklin High School before it was shuttered in the 1960s.His journalism roots also run deep. He broke into the game in 1964 — after spending three years in the U.S. Army — when his mother told Hugh that Jerry Durnbaugh, founder of The Weekly Packet in Blue Hill, was looking for a reporter/ad salesman. “I was an abysmal salesman,” Bowden said, but he stayed on and learned the reporter’s trade. When Durnbaugh moved on to a job at the Kennebec Journal, Bowden became editor.During his time at the Packet, Bowden also served a term as president of the Maine Press Association.Bowden left journalism — temporarily — for a successful run for the Maine Legislature. He served one term in 1979-80, but with two young daughters — Marcie and Jamie — and a marriage that was ending, he did not seek re-election.In 1980, partnering with James McCaffrey, a retired New York advertising executive, Bowden started the Castine Patriot weekly newspaper. The two of them had a good run and the Castine Patriot flourished. But when McCaffrey decided to retire and sell the paper, Bowden was not in a position to buy. He took a job in community relations at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.But, before long, James Russell Wiggins, editor and publisher of The Ellsworth American, recruited Bowden as managing editor. He later was named executive editor and chief editorial writer, and took on the sports editor-reporter-photographer role as well.Wiggins, editor and publisher of The American for 31 years, earned wide respect and admiration for his weekly editorials and poems. But Ellsworth American Publisher Alan Baker recalls that, as the end of Wiggins’ career approached, “many faithful readers expressed concern about what would become of our editorial page once Mr. Wiggins retired.Because the newspaper’s editorials are unsigned, and express the institutional opinion of the paper, said Baker, few readers realized that Hugh Bowden had been authoring an increasing proportion of our editorials. After many years of editing all Wiggins’ writing, Hugh had mastered the Wiggins’ style.“When Russ retired back in 2000, the change was seamless. Nobody could tell that he was no longer writing our editorials. What a marvelous testimonial to Hugh’s talents as an editorial writer,” said Baker. “We are fortunate, and proud, that The American and its readers will continue to enjoy and appreciate Hugh’s editorial contributions for many more years.”Reception for Hugh BowdenDec. 4 at Ellsworth High SchoolEllsworth High School and The Ellsworth American will host an informal reception for Hugh Bowden Thursday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Ellsworth High School cafeteria. Student athletes, coaches, athletic directors, town officials and members of the public are cordially invited. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.center_img Stephen FayManaging Editor at The Ellsworth AmericanStephen Fay, managing editor of The Ellsworth American since 1996, is a third-generation Californian.

Chelsea v Arsenal preview: Match details, kick-off time, facts, predicted line-ups

Posted on by

first_imgWHEN IS THE MATCH?Saturday September 19, kick-off at 11:45am (Ghana time)WHERE IS THE MATCH BEING PLAYED?Stamford Bridge.WHY IS IT WORTH FOLLOWING? Chelsea are in disarray. A tetchy Jose Mourinho was recorded making an off-colour remark to Everton manager Roberto Martinez in the wake of his side’s 3-1 defeat on Saturday – all because his counterpart ‘jumped ahead’ of him in the interview queue. Martinez’s response added weight to what many already believe – that Mourinho is only gentlemanly when he’s winning. “When he beat us 6-3 last season he was such a nice man,” said Martinez in the recording. “I prefer him like that.”Now chuck Arsene Wenger into the mix. The Arsenal manager has a running feud with Mourinho and would enjoy nothing more than inflicting another defeat on Chelsea. Can he do it? Recent history says probably not: the Gunners have failed to beat Chelsea in seven Premier League outings, although they claimed a morale-boosting win in the Charity Shield in the annual season curtain-raiser.Arsenal will climb into second, albeit probably temporarily with victory, while Chelsea could do without chants of “we are staying up” and must start accumulating points soon…TEAM NEWS Forward Willian is out of Chelsea’s Premier League clash. Striker Radamel Falcao, playmaker Oscar (both knee) and Pedro (thigh) could be available, but are doubtful. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is out for around three months following knee surgery, while defender Papy Djilobodji, who is not in the Champions League squad, could be included. Arsenal report no fresh injury worries from the midweek Champions League trip to Dinamo Zagreb. Goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to return against his former club, having been on the bench in Croatia, while defender Hector Bellerin and midfielder Aaron Ramsey are also back in the squad after being rested. Centre back Per Mertesacker could be in contention again after recovering from illness. Midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for an operation on a hairline fracture in his left fibula next week, while forward Danny Welbeck and Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (both knee) are also sidelined MANAGER QUOTESJose Mourinho: “In everything you do in life, you need confidence to be better. In football, when you lose matches, you are affected. You can say you’re not but you are. Normally, when bad things in football happen, the first thing is to find a dramatic story. Somebody punched someone in the dressing-room. The manager doesn’t want to speak with this guy. Diego Costa fought with John Terry and before they start the fight, they brought a translator for them to understand each other because Diego cannot speak English and John cannot speak Spanish. They organise it like the Wild West duels. We are going to fight at this time, bring a translator to help us. Or, Mourinho doesn’t want to give new contracts to Terry and (Branislav) Ivanovic. Mourinho instructs the scouts to find a new right-back urgently.”Arsene Wenger: “Let’s not forget it is the start of the season and only five games have been played. For us it is a big game and we know our position at the end of the season will depend on how well we do in the big games. I do not think too much about where Chelsea stand in the league at the moment. I focus more on us performing well with full power tomorrow.”  MATCH FACTSChelsea are unbeaten against Arsenal in their last seven Barclays Premier League encounters (W4 D3).The Gunners have failed to score in their last four Premier League matches against the Blues and have managed just two goals in their last seven league games against them.Arsene Wenger secured his first win over Jose Mourinho in the Community Shield on his 14th attempt in all competitions (D6 L7). Eden Hazard has scored in the Blues’ last two PL clashes with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, with both goals coming in the first half from the penalty spot.Jose Mourinho has never lost successive league home games as a manager – he lost his last home league game against Crystal Palace (1-2).Theo Walcott has scored 11 goals in his last 11 Premier League starts for Arsenal.The Gunners have won seven and lost none of their last eight Premier League away matches.Chelsea have kept five clean sheets in their last seven Premier League games against Arsenal, including the last four in a row. Arsenal have fired in the most shots on target in the Premier League (39), while Chelsea have allowed their opponents the most in the top flight (38).Only David James (169) has kept more clean sheets than Petr Cech (165) in Premier League history and the Czech has not been beaten in his last three league outings.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

U.S. Olympic hoops roster finally set

Posted on by

first_img“We feel like we’re definitely a great team. We have all the pieces that we need,” forward Carmelo Anthony said. “We’ve got to put it together, but we feel like we’re the best team out there.”The Americans rounded out their roster Saturday, adding Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala and James Harden to the nine players who already seemed secure long before training camp began.They earned the final three spots that opened after a rash of injuries knocked out at least four players who would have been on the team. They beat out Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay and No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis of New Orleans, who couldn’t scrimmage this week because of a sprained ankle.Also heading to London for the defending gold medalists are: Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Tyson Chandler and Kevin Love.The Americans never had a close game four years ago until the championship game, when they pulled away in the final two minutes to beat Spain 118-107. Even with Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh unable to return from that team, the Americans think this one can be even stronger.“When I think about ’08, we were really good then. But like me, LeBron and D-Will, all of us talk about, you’ve got to think about how much better all of us are now than we were in ’08,” Paul said. “All of us as players, we shoot the ball better. Guys are more athletic, guys are more confident. One through 12, no question we’re deeper than we were in ’08.”USA Basketball Jerry Colangelo acknowledged the adversity the team faced with all the injuries in his remarks before the players were introduced during a press conference, all wearing their white USA jerseys—James and Anthony even looking game-ready in white headbands.“But as the dust settles, I’m proud to say that we’ve put together in my opinion a terrific team with great athleticism and great versatility and we believe we’re going to be successful,” Colangelo said.Griffin showed he was healthy again after being slowed by a knee injury during the playoffs, putting on an impressive dunking display following practice Saturday. Harden, the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year with Oklahoma City, gives the Americans more scoring punch off the bench, and Iguodala is a defensive specialist who can guard multiple positions.James, Bryant, Anthony, Paul and Williams were all part of the 2008 Olympic gold medalists. Durant, Westbrook, Chandler and Love also played on the world championship team two years ago.Colangelo said he believed this team was deeper and better than the ’08 squad, but added that “only time will tell.”The injuries leave the Americans short-handed at center, where Howard started four years ago in Beijing and Bosh backed him up. Chandler is the only natural center left, so the Americans will be forced to use some players out of their normal NBA positions.But what remains is still the most athletic team in the world, with potent scorers at nearly every spot, and the Americans will look to overcome any size disadvantage by punishing teams in transition. Griffin said expects to be strictly at the center spot.The Americans opened training camp Friday and will practice here through next Wednesday, then play an exhibition game against the Dominican Republic on Thursday.James and Anthony will be playing in their third Olympics for a U.S. team with an average age is 26.1 years. The young guys, combined with the veteran returnees, could make for a golden mixture.“I think we have guys on the team that’s definitely hungry at this point, especially young guys that want to go out and prove themselves,” Anthony said. “They’ve been showing that over the last couple of days in practice. What we put together in ’08, we will never duplicate that again. But this is a new team, this is a new situation and this team wants to form their own identity.” 2012 DREAM TEAM—Coach Mike Krzyzewski, left, and USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo, right, stand with the 12 players named to the U.S. men’s basketball team, July 7, in Las Vegas.

(AP Photo/Las Vegas Review-Journal, Jason Bean) by Brian MahoneyAP Basketball Writer LAS VEGAS (AP)—LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and three other Olympic gold medalists were already back.Add a defensive stopper, a potent scorer off the bench, and one of the NBA’s most explosive athletes, and the U.S. is certain it has a powerful Olympic basketball team. Better even than the one that won gold four years ago.last_img read more
