  • WHO expects hydroxychloroquine safety findings by mid-June

    first_imgNovartis said The Lancet study, while covering 100,000 people, was “observational” and could not demonstrate a causal link between hydroxychloroquine and side effects.”We need randomized, controlled clinical trials to clearly understand efficacy and safety,” a Novartis spokesman said.The WHO said its safety-board review would examine not just Solidarity patients, but other hydroxychloroquine studies too, to determine if a pattern emerges similar to problems described in The Lancet.Dr. Oriol Manuel, infectious disease expert and national coordinator of the Solidarity study in Switzerland, said hitting pause now made sense.”There are several thousand patients already enrolled, some randomized to receive hydroxychloroquine, some who did not receive any drug,” Manuel told Reuters. “They can do a comparison of the use of hydroxychloroquine … to see whether there is a signal of some kind of adverse events.” Those already in a 17-country study, called Solidarity, of thousands of patients who have started hydroxychloroquine can finish their treatment, the WHO said.Newly enrolled patients will get other treatments being evaluated, including Gilead Science’s remdesivir and AbbVie’s Kaletra/Aluvia.Separate hydroxychloroquine trials, including a 440-patient US study by Swiss drugmaker Novartis, are continuing enrollment.Novartis and rival Sanofi have pledged donations of tens of millions of doses of the drug, also used in rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, for COVID-19. Topics :center_img The World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday promised a swift review of data on hydroxychloroquine, probably by mid-June, after safety concerns prompted the group to suspend the malaria drug’s use in a large trial on COVID-19 patients.US President Donald Trump and others have pushed hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment, but the WHO on Monday called time after the British journal The Lancet reported patients getting hydroxychloroquine had increased death rates and irregular heartbeats.”A final decision on the harm, benefit or lack of benefit of hydroxychloroquine will be made once the evidence has been reviewed,” the body said. “It is expected by mid-June.”last_img read more

  • Austrian finance minister warns of pension fund ‘oligopoly’

    first_imgFurther consolidation in Austria’s second-pillar pension system could lead to an “oligopoly”, finance minister Hans Jörg Schelling has warned.Speaking at the 25th anniversary celebration of Austrian Pensionskassen, he argued that competition was vital in the second pillar and “must be allowed”.“There must be no further consolidation that might hinder competition,” he told IPE.Since the law that established Pensionskassen came into effect in July 1990, many company pension plans in Austria have been outsourced to multi-employer funds. A year ago, figures released by supervisory authority FMA showed that the three largest Austrian Pensionskassen accounted for 73% of the market.Overall, the number of company and multi-employer pension funds has now come down to 14, with the Victoria Volksbanken Pensionskasse currently still on the market.A decision on that sale is expected in the coming weeks.Schelling also called on the pensions industry to “offer more attractive products” but added that he was aware Pensionskassen were “restricted by a tight regulatory framework” set by the FMA and European regulators.Speaking with IPE, the minister said “people needed to have trust in the system” and might need “more flexibility” regarding products.Schelling called for a “combined product” as a hybrid between a Pensionskasse and an insurance-based “Betriebliche Kollektivversicherung”, offered in the second pillar by various Austrian insurers.He said he was convinced that only a combination of solutions would help increase participation in the second pillar and indirectly waived the industry’s demand for tax incentives such as the full introduction of the EET-model in Austria.“Currently, there is no room for tax incentives, but, over the next 25 years, the topic will certainly come up again,” he told IPE.last_img read more

There’s not much that is round in the house. Everything is square,” he said. However, it is the well-thought out details of this home that bring softness to the space. The kitchen area, which exudes style and warmth.Take the polished hardwood flooring made of Queensland spotted gum that runs throughout the three-storey home. Look up in the covered external spaces, such as the back patio and courtyards, and you find the same timber on the ceilings as well.“Putting those boards on the ceiling wasn’t easy to do,” Goran said, “but we wanted to make the house a little bit more interesting. Enjoy the outdoors, indoors in this covered courtyard.“We also wanted to build a home rather than a house, so apart from the geometric design and the quality of the materials, we wanted to create a sense of warmth, which we have done through the wood, the furniture and other features.”One thing you can’t help but notice as you look around the middle floor, and there are many things to catch your eye, is the shimmer of a bronze tree in an outside courtyard. The house has amazing city views from the balcony.“The architect wanted to create a Japanese garden in the area but I wasn’t ready to go that far, so I thought of a tree,” Goran said. “It was a big process to get it up to that level and in a custom-made box, but it’s a lovely area where you can sit and relax and be inside the house but feel like your outside.”Also on this floor is a fireplace, expansive kitchen and butler’s pantry, a living room, games room, library, laundry and study. From the kitchen, the dining room leads out onto a rear balcony where you can find an outdoor entertaining area and pool. The spotted gum floorboards are repeated on the ceiling of the outdoor areas.On the lower level is the garage, a large cellar and entertainment area with a pool table and cinema room. But that’s only a quarter of the space here. The other side of the floor is taken up by the guests quarters, which has its own entrance.“It was designed so be self sufficient., so guests can do their own thing,” Goran said. But when no one is staying we use the adjoining area as a gym space, so it’s always utilised.” The home’s large cinema room.On the top floor is where you will find three bedrooms, including the master, further living spaces and the Mirics’ favourite space in the house — the top balcony.“We have full city views and there is an outside bar, it’s absolutely amazing. We’ve held lots of parties with up to 60 people there. The house sits high in the suburb so it’s just an amazing area that gets nice breezes and amazing sunrises and sunsets. It’s my favourite place.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus9 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market9 hours ago Sleek lines are a feature of the this home.There are internal and external stairs joining the floors, but Goran said the house also had a void, should someone wish to install a lift.While the sheer size of the house has made it ideal during lockdown, Goran said the time had come to downsize. “There’s 750sqm of inside space, so it would be a little bit much for just myself and my wife,” Goran said. One cannot forget the outside pools.“Our two kids are of the age where they would like something that’s a bit more inner-city living. We enjoyed the house while the kids were younger, but now we want something like an apartment, maybe by the river.”The family originally chose to build in Coorparoo because they were already living and working on the south side of the city. Warm yourself by the fire of an evening.“We considered other areas such as Hawthorne or Bulimba, but we settled on Coorparoo because it was easier to get in and out of,” Goran said. “It’s close to the city and major highways, so it’s easy to go north or south from here, which is important,” he said.“It’s become more trendy over the past few years, since we built the house; lots of restaurants and bars are popping up. There’s also a real community feel, that is quite nice.”The house will be auctioned at noon on June 6 through Place Estate Agents, New Farm.center_img The gnarly Brisbane home with a skate bowl in the living room 39 Illidge Street, CoorparooThis architecturally designed house in Coorparoo is all about geometry.From the roofline outside to the internal spaces, it’s all cool, clean, straight lines and large open voids.Yet for such an open-plan minimalistic building, the home exudes nothing but softness and warmth, which was what homeowners Goran and Linda Miric were hoping for when they built it six years ago. The entrance of the home is on the middle level.Linda was heavily involved with the design, which took a year to complete, and it was brought to life by KP Architects.last_img read more

He had hoped to impress the onlookers in the French capital and become the club’s long-term replacement for Edinson Cavani. But, even though the Argentine has scored an impressive 12 goals in 20 league outings, he has struggled with a lack of game-time.

Coach Thomas Tuchel has predominantly utilised Kylian Mbappe as the central striker whilst rotating between Cavani and Icardi. As a result, both the players, the latter, in particular, have found it challenging to make their mark. He hasn’t been helped by the fact that the French football authority made a decision to cancel the Ligue 1 campaign, even though they did award PSG the title. So in general, Icardi’s short loan spell at Parc des Princes can be deemed as a failure.

  • Why sports minister Dalung must rethink the issue of a foreign…

    first_imgOga minister, if the Nigeria Football Federation needs to hire a foreign coach for the Super Eagles please support them financially, because you would find that you are doing yourself a world of good. Success in football is a great way to keep Nigerians, especially the youth, happy, united and engaged. Nigerian coaches have held sway for 14 and a half years of the last 16 and the Super Eagles have somehow become serial losers. There are different ways to look at what is good for Nigeria. One way is to keep employing Nigerian coaches and watching the Super Eagles slip to the level of minnows like Swaziland and Chad. The other is to employ a world class coach regardless of his nationality, and watch the Super Eagles become a dominant force in Africa again. There is an economic cost to this. Our failures in recent years have cost us tens of millions of dollars in sponsorships, appearance fees, broadcast rights, endorsements, partnerships etc. Last time, we could only secure friendlies with the likes of Luxembourg – a European team ranked 146th in the world at the time! We cannot keep making issues like this about nationalist sentiments in an increasingly interdependent world that offers every country to a global pool of world class talents. Even our ‘oga’ England are going for a foreign coach. The crazy thing is that we employ Nigerian coaches and they in turn hire some K-legged foreign assistants. LOL. Should the consideration not be about the Super Eagles bringing better results and opportunities for Nigerians? Or is repeated failure bearable and consequent loss of business okay as long as it is brought on us by Nigerians?Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

  • Badgers head west for Wolfpack Softball Classic

    first_imgThe Wisconsin softball team has spent the last three weekends circling the southeast corner of the nation, competing in tournaments in Florida and South Carolina. This weekend, they will finally hit the west coast for a tournament in Reno, Nev.The Wolfpack Softball Classic, hosted by the University of Nevada, will include the University of San Diego in addition to Wisconsin. The Badgers will alternate between San Diego and Nevada for their first three games on Friday and Saturday, before finishing the weekend with two additional games against Nevada.Following a strong showing last weekend in Charleston, SC – where the Badgers finished 2-1 – head coach Yvette Healy is happy with her team’s play thus far but wants to continue making strides.“We’re in a good place to be, at .500, with the competition we are seeing.” Healy said. “I am happy with how we are starting to come together a little bit, but we haven’t gotten a huge amount of momentum yet.”If momentum is what they are searching for, they will have to look no further than this weekend’s first opponent, San Diego. The Toreros have won seven straight games by sweeping through the San Diego Classic last weekend and beating Maine on Wednesday.San Diego has been carried through the streak by its pitching, surrendering only 13 runs in the last seven games. As the Badgers prepare to slow down the Toreros, Wisconsin’s offense will certainly be the topic of emphasis.“[San Diego] is strong. They have great pitching, and that is their biggest thing,” Healy said. “They have some people throwing great games for them, getting a lot of strikeouts and holding hitters down. We’ll have to get creative.”Healy’s ability to get creative with offensive tactics has come, in large part, from the surprising source of freshman outfielder Maria Van Abel. The Kaukauna, Wis., native has greatly surpassed expectations in this season’s first month, emerging from the bench to starting in the outfield and batting second in the lineup.She was able to quickly catch the eyes of coaches with her numerous ways of jump-starting the offense.Van Abel currently leads the team in hitting with a .455 batting average, while providing a change-up of speed by leading the team with four stolen bases. Her multiple facets made Healy’s lineup changes an easy decision.“It’s always fun when someone comes in and can get hot for a couple weekends,” Healy said. “She has been a real boost and burst of energy for us, and you need that at the top of the lineup.”The lineup change displays the coaches’ confidence in the freshman outfielder; a confidence that has not gone unnoticed by Van Abel herself.“It means a lot, knowing that the coaches think you can succeed,” Van Abel said. “It really helps you believe that you can succeed as well.”The Badgers will face Nevada on each day of the weekend, adding three road games to their record. The Wolfpack appear to represent the opposite end of the spectrum from San Diego, only winning five games on the season while losing seven of their last eight.Nevada’s victories have come sparingly, but they tend to occur when senior Mallory Darby is on the mound. The Badgers will likely face Darby twice during the weekend, so Coach Healy sees an opponent just as difficult as San Diego.“They’re at home, so it brings in the element that you have to beat a team on their home field,” Healy said. “They also have a few good wins. They may not have as many, but they have played a good schedule.”Pitching for the Badgers this weekend will be Cassandra Darrah and Meghan McIntosh, both of whom had success last weekend in Charleston.Darrah surrendered only two runs over 10 innings of work, helping Wisconsin beat Connecticut and hang around against Kansas. McIntosh pitched an eight-inning complete game against Charleston Southern, striking out a career-high 14 batters. Nonetheless, there remains much room for improvement for the Badger pitchers.“Getting those strikeouts and letting the defense work definitely boosted my confidence,” McIntosh said. “But I’m trying to look back on where my hard hits are given up, and keep the ball lower in the zone.”While offering another chance for improvement from the Badgers pitching staff, five-game weekends can provide the gel a team needs to bring about success.“These next two weekends are going to be pretty big for us to start putting it together,” Healy said. “I think we’re learning a lot and we’re getting better, but now you have to start putting it to use.”last_img read more
