first_imgDefinitionMononucleosis is a viral infection causing fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck.See also: Infectious mononucleosis (acute CMV infection)Alternative NamesMono; Kissing diseaseCauses, incidence, and risk factorsMononucleosis, or mono, is often spread by saliva and close contact. It is known as “the kissing disease,” and occurs most often in those age 15 to 17. However, the infection may develop at any age.Mono is usually linked to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), but can also be caused by other organisms such as cytomegalovirus (CMV).SymptomsMono may begin slowly with fatigue, a general ill feeling, headache, and sore throat. The sore throat slowly gets worse. Your tonsils become swollen and develop a whitish-yellow covering. The lymph nodes in the neck are frequently swollen and painful.A pink, measles-like rash can occur and is more likely if you take the medicines ampicillin or amoxicillin for a throat infection. (Antibiotics should NOT be given without a positive Strep test.)Symptoms of mononucleosis include:DrowsinessFeverGeneral discomfort, uneasiness, or ill feelingLoss of appetiteMuscle aches or stiffnessRashSore throatSwollen lymph nodes, especially in the neck and armpitSwollen spleenLess frequently occurring symptoms include:Chest painCoughFatigueHeadacheHivesJaundice (yellow color to the skin)Neck stiffnessNosebleedRapid heart rateSensitivity to lightShortness of breathSigns and testsThe doctor or nurse will examine you. This may show that you have:Swollen lymph nodes in the front and back of your neckSwollen tonsils with a whitish-yellow coveringSwollen liver or spleenSkin rashBlood tests will be done, including:White blood cell (WBC) count – will be higher than normalMonospot test – will be positive for infectious mononucleosis.Antibody titer – tells the difference between a current and previous infectionTreatmentadvertisementThe goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms. Steroid medicine (prednisone) may be given if symptoms are severe.Antiviral drugssuch as acyclovir have little or no benefit.To relieve typical symptoms:Drink plenty of fluids.Gargle with warm salt water to ease a sore throat.Get plenty of rest.Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and fever.You should also avoid contact sports while the spleen is swollen (to prevent it from rupturing).Expectations (prognosis)The fever usually drops in 10 days, and swollen lymph glands and spleen heal in 4 weeks. Fatigue usually goes away within a few weeks, but may linger for 2 to 3 months.Complications Complications of mononucleosis may include:Bacterial infection of the throatHemolytic anemiaHepatitis with jaundice (more common in patients older than 35)Inflammation of the testicles (orchitis)Nervous system problems (rare), such as:Guillain-Barre syndromeMeningitisSeizuresTemporary facial paralysis (Bells palsy)Uncoordinated movements (ataxia)Spleen rupture (rare; avoid pressure on the spleen)Skin rash (Gianotti-Crosti syndrome – acrodermatitis ofchildhood)Death is possible in people who have aweakened immune system.Calling your health care providerThe initial symptoms of mono feel very much like a typical viral illness. It is not necessary to contact a health care provider unless symptoms last longer than 10 days or you develop the following:Abdominal painBreathing difficultyPersistent high fevers (more than 101.5F)Severe headacheSevere sore throat or swollen tonsilsWeakness in the arm or legsYellow discoloration of your eyes or skinCall 911 or go to an emergency room if you develop:Sharp, sudden, severe abdominal painSignificant difficulty swallowing or breathingStiff neck or severe weaknessPreventionPersons with mononucleosis may be contagious while they have symptoms and for up to a few months afterwards. How long someone with the disease is contagious varies. The virus can live for several hours outside the body. Avoid kissing or sharing utensils if you or someone close to you has mono.ReferencesFrye R, Bailey J, Blevins AE. Clinical inquiries. Which treatments provide the most relief for pharyngitis pain?

Bahrain GP: Fernando Alonso ruled out after horror crash in Australia

first_imgMcLaren driver Fernando Alonso will miss this weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix, and possibly the following race in China, as a result of broken ribs and other injuries sustained during a crash in the season opener earlier this month.Alonso arrived in Bahrain hoping to prove his fitness, but after consultation with FIA medical officers, he was ruled out on Thursday and he will be replaced by Belgian rookie Stefan Vandoorne, who will make his Formula One racing debut.Alonso said he will undergo further FIA tests late next week to determine if he is fit enough to race in China on April 17.The Spanish two-time world champion walked away from the accident at the Australian Grand Prix despite his car being launched into the air by a collision with the Haas of Esteban Gutierrez, hitting a concrete barrier and flipping over twice before coming to rest in a smoking wreck.Initially he thought he would be certain to race in Bahrain but scans revealed broken ribs on his left side and a pneumothorax a buildup of air between the lung and chest wall.”When you come here and you cannot even try it’s always sad, but it’s understandable and I respect the decision,” Alonso said. “I try until the last moment to be able to race, at least to try in the practice. There has been some painful days, with some pain at home, but I was ready to go through this pain somehow in the car and make sure I could race, because at the end of the day the pain is manageable if you don’t think too much probably and (with) the adrenaline of driving, but there are some other risks.advertisement”So it’s a risk management that I understand, to minimize everything is the logical thing to do.”There is a two-week break between Bahrain and the third round of the championship in China, but Alonso said he will not participate in Shanghai if there was a risk of compounding the injuries.”First of all is the safety and then the performance, so hopefully everything is okay but it’s something we need to see with the next test,” Alonso said.”The pneumothorax is gone more or less but I have some rib fractures, so because of that there are the risks of driving, because Formula One is a very unique sport, a unique position on the car, and the G-forces that a fracture could move into the lung as well, so it’s not like a broken leg or broken arm, that you can deal with the pain, this is in the chest where some organs are there and we cannot do much more.”His replacement Vandoorne turned 24 last week. He was GP2 champion last season and has been a test and reserve driver for McLaren since 2014.last_img read more

Australia v Uzbekistan: History on Socceroos’ side

first_imgHistory is well and truly on the Socceroos’ side ahead of their Asian Cup Round of 16 clash against Uzbekistan at the Khalifa Bin Zayed Stadium – which kicks off on January 22 at 1am (AEDT). Australia have won each of their three games against Uzbekistan without conceding a goal and their last meeting saw the Socceroos triumph 6-0 at the 2011 Asian Cup.A lot has changed since then however with the White Wolves ranked as high as 43rd in the world in 2016 and they look more than capable of asking some serious questions of the green and gold.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

Israeli woman admits killing Palestinian children on TV show

first_imgSidi Ifni, Morocco- During “Lie Detector”, a Ukrainian television program aired in early November, an Israeli soldier, admitted that she shot some unknown Palestinians, including children, according to Maan News. Zakusilo, a Ukrainian Jewish woman who served in the Israeli army, has revealed that she had killed some Palestinians without being sure of the exact number.She also admitted training army dogs to attack Palestinian villages, in addition to conducting video surveillance in the occupied Palestinian territories. Palestinian mothers, Zakusilo underscored, are to blame for sending their children to be “suicide bombers”.“I am not proud of these acts, though“ Zakusilo said.When asked if she was “willing to go back to Israel and continue killing enemies”, she said “Yes”.But she said that she was afraid she would face trouble, particularly after revealing her barbarous acts, reported Ma’an News Agency.The former Israeli soldier pointed out that she hesitated to shoot Palestinians at first, but was convinced by the Israeli army and her fellow soldiers to shoot and defend Israel.“He tells you to go and shoot like this, so you go,“ Zakusilo said, referring to her commander.Commenting on the television program, Kopty, the Palestinian blogger, noted that she was shocked by Zausilo’s comments.Regarding the Israeli army’s barbarous exploitation of killers, the blogger explained, “the military does this to people- it disconnects them from their own humanity, and makes it so easy to kill people and do not even remember the number.”“The Israeli military will probably justify her actions“ she added.While an Israeli army spokeswoman could not confirm whether Zakusilo served in the Israeli army, Amnesty International’s reports say that Israeli soldiers are not usually held accountable for their crimes against Palestinian civilians.© Morocco World News.

NGOs Call on Egypt to Ratify Paris Agreement before COP22

Cairo – The agreement was signed in late April but is still pending parliamentary reviewSeven non-governmental organisations in Egypt signed a joint statement calling on Egypt to ratify the Paris climate agreement, before the 22nd conference of the parties (COP22).Egypt had signed the agreement already in late April during the ceremony in UN headquarters in New York but it needs to pass this agreement to the parliament in order to ratify and then become officially in effect. In December 2015, during the previous COP21 in Paris, UN member states agreed to keep the temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius by 2100. The agreement also binds signing countries to collaborate with developing countries in technology transfer and capacity building as well as fund. Each country then submitted Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) towards reaching this goal.COP22 will be held in Marrakech, Morocco on 7 November bringing together world leaders once again to further discuss implementation mechanisms of the agreement and partnerships between countries.“Ratifying the agreement is required not only as part of the shared responsibility of countries but also for the many benefits it brings directly to Egypt,” the statement read.Egypt is one of the most vulnerable countries towards climate change effects. At least 18 people died and 72 others were injured during excessive floods in many governorates in Upper Egypt and Sinai. The floods wrecked havoc to many residents, demolished their houses and fractured highway road.This is not a precedent. Last winter in 2015, excessive rain floods had also damaged several villages in Alexandria and Behaira leaving dozens displaced and about 10 dead.According to the statement, Egypt could benefit a lot from being part of this agreement in order to advance its adaptation measures.The NGOs also called on Egypt to add more details to its NDC in order to benefit from the international cooperation mechanisms provided through the COP. “Climate change risks cannot be postponed,” they said. read more

Security Council inaction on Darfur can only embolden perpetrators – ICC prosecutor

“It is becoming increasingly difficult for me to appear before you and purport to be updating you when all I am doing is repeating the same things I have said over and over again, most of which are well known to this Council,” Fatou Bensouda lamented in her statement this morning. “To date, none of these individuals have been brought to justice, and some of them continue to be implicated in atrocities committed against innocent civilians.”Ms. Bensouda’s briefing to the Council comes amid a worsening security climate and dire humanitarian crisis in the Sudanese region with ramped-up hostilities between Government forces and armed movements, deadly inter-communal conflicts and a precipitous rise in criminality and banditry.Moreover, according to UN estimates, the number of people displaced by conflict has increased to more than 430,000 since the beginning of the year, with close to 300,000 remaining displaced in addition to the more than two million long-term internally displaced persons, or IDPs.However, the ICC Prosecutor added, not only was the situation in Darfur “deteriorating,” but the brutality with which crimes are being committed there has become “more pronounced.” In particular, she warned that women and girls were continuing to bear the “brunt of sustained attacks” on innocent civilians.Fresh allegations of a mass rape of 200 women in Tabit, located in North Darfur, for instance, have fuelled concerns regarding the overall security situation in the region and the general safety of women and girls in the area. The UN-African Union hybrid mission (UNAMID) recently declared it had initiated an investigation but said its team had found no evidence confirming the claims and received no information regarding the purported acts. Village community leaders, meanwhile, reiterated to UNAMID that they “coexist peacefully” with local military authorities.Nonetheless, Ms. Bensouda observed that UNAMID had been denied full access to Tabit, “thus frustrating full and transparent investigations” and argued that it was “unacceptable” that such investigations were conducted in a situation in which perpetrators maintained effective control over their victims.“Victims of rape are asking themselves how many more women should be brutally attacked for this Council to appreciate the magnitude of their plight,” she continued. “We find ourselves in a stalemate that can only embolden perpetrators to continue their brutality.”Ms. Bensouda, in fact, pointed out that ICC Judges had already concluded that certain individuals in Sudan be brought to the International Criminal Court to answer charges, including Sudanese President Omar A1 Bashir, for whom a warrant of arrest has been issued. However, until the Council applied “a dramatic shift” to its approach to arresting Darfur suspects, it would be increasingly difficult for her and the ICC to continue doing their work, she concluded.“Given this Council’s lack of foresight on what should happen in Darfur, I am left with no choice but to hibernate investigative activities in Darfur as I shift resources to other urgent cases, especially those in which trial is approaching. It should thus be clear to this Council that unless there is a change of attitude and approach to Darfur in the near future, there shall continue to be little or nothing to report to you for the foreseeable future.” read more

Libya Security Council endorses UN plan on restarting political process

In a Presidential Statement, the 15-member body strongly urged all Libyans to work together in a spirit of compromise and to engage constructively in the inclusive political process set out in the UN action plan, which was presented at a high-level event in New York on 20 September 2017. Regarding the measures set out in the action plan, the statement said that the Council “looks forward to further sequential implementation” of the plan, ahead of the holding of parliamentary and presidential elections within a year. The Council also reaffirmed that the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA), which was signed in December 2015, “remains the only viable framework” to end the Libyan political crisis, and that any attempt by Libyan parties to undermine the Libyan-led, UN-facilitated political process is unacceptable. Welcoming recent efforts to strengthen an inclusive political dialogue among all Libyans, including important efforts by Libya’s neighbours, international partners and regional organizations, the Council stressed that “all such initiatives should be consolidated under the leadership of the UN.In that regard, the Council emphasised the imperative for all Member States to support the primacy of the UN mediation in Libya. read more

Yemen UN aid chief welcomes 1 billion funding pledge as humanitarian crisis

“I reiterate the Secretary-General’s statement welcoming the generous $1 billion pledge by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to support humanitarian action in Yemen, as well as their commitment to raise an additional $500 million from other donors in the region,” UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock said Tuesday.Saudi Arabia and the UAE agreed with the UN that $930 million would be transferred by 31 March, in support of the 2018 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP) – with the clear stipulation that the funds be used on humanitarian need alone.The two countries would also provide an additional $70 million to support port rehabilitation and infrastructure in the country as part of the Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations Plan issued by the Saudi-led coalition in January 2018.The funds represent almost one-third of the YHRP $2.96 billion requirement.“Once converted,” Mr. Lowcock said, “the pledge will reduce hunger, contain disease, maintain essential health, water and education services and relieve the suffering of millions of Yemenis across the country.”“If fully funded,” he continued “the UN and its partners will provide, among other assistance, emergency food to more than 8.5 million Yemenis, nutritional services to 5.6 million children, pregnant women and mothers, and safe water to 5.4 million people.The UN and its partners will also rehabilitate more than 1,400 schools and 650 health facilities destroyed by the ongoing conflict.Mr. Lowcock thanked both countries for moving forward with the “generous and much needed infusion of funds.”“I hope this generosity will encourage more donors to contribute to the YHRP, including ahead of the international pledging conference on Yemen to be held in Geneva on 3 April,” he added.A record 22.2 million people are now in need of humanitarian assistance – 3.4 million more than last year.“I call on all parties to the conflict to respect international humanitarian law by protecting civilians and civilian infrastructure and facilitating rapid, safe and unfettered humanitarian access to Yemen and within the country,” stressed Mr. Lowcock, who is also the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs.While brave humanitarians are committed to saving lives, only a political solution and an end to the conflict will stop the suffering of the Yemeni people.“We renew our call on all parties to cease hostilities and to engage meaningfully with the United Nations to achieve a lasting political settlement,” concluded Mr. Lowcock. read more

Tackling corruption from the top down essential declares UN chief marking key

Corruption ‘destroys everything in its path’Speaking alongside the Secretary-General, Miroslav Lajčák, the President of the UN General Assembly also reiterated that corruption hurts all sections of the society and that it “destroys everything in its path.”Ultimately, corruption causes suffering to ordinary people going about their daily lives, he stressed, citing common examples: “When they are stopped at checkpoints, for bribes. When a bus does not come – or a clinic does not open – because budgets were mismanaged. Or when they lose all of their savings, from extortion,” said Mr. Lajčák.He also highlighted the link between the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and good governance.“If we want to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we need to take concrete steps. This will mean allocating budgets. It will mean raising more funds. It will mean new policies and new legislation”, he said, adding that more innovative ways needed to be found of “working together”.Yury Fedotov, the Executive-Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) also underscored the importance of the Convention for sustainable development.Noting that while Sustainable Development Goal 16 (SDG16) explicitly urges action against corruption, tackling the problem is a prerequisite for overall economic growth.“Anti-corruption responses are also crucial to ensuring access to healthcare, water, education and other vital services; protecting forests, oceans and wildlife; and reducing inequalities,” he added. “It all begins with setting an example. By tackling corruption, Governments can show they mean business,” said Secretary-General António Guterres, speaking at a high-level event marking the 15th anniversary of the UN Convention Against Corruption.“Society cannot function equitably and efficiently when public officials – from doctors to police, judges and politicians – enrich themselves rather than perform their duties with integrity,” he added.Adopted in 2003, the Convention Against Corruption is the only legally-binding universal instrument, drawn up to fight corruption in all its forms.Society cannot function equitably and efficiently when public officials – from doctors to police, judges and politicians – enrich themselves rather than perform their duties with integrity— Secretary-General António GuterresIn his remarks, Mr. Guterres also underlined that in addition to robbing vital resources from public services such as schools and hospitals, corruption also fuels human trafficking and the black market in natural resources, weapons, drugs and cultural artifacts.“It fuels conflict, and when a hard-won peace is achieved, corruption undermines recovery. Corruption and impunity are corrosive, breeding frustration and fostering further corruption when people see no other way of achieving their goals,” said the UN chief, calling for greater political and popular support for the fight against corruption.He described the Convention Against Corruption as one of the most effective tools the world has to achieve the common goals of good governance, stability and prosperity.“The UN will continue to support Member States every step of the way, from helping to engage and empower citizens in this fight, to helping build and enhance institutions that can deliver on their promise,” said Mr. Guterres. read more

Major search operation to begin Saturday for missing Rescue 116 crew

first_imgMajor search operation to begin Saturday for missing Rescue 116 crew The Coast Guard, the LÉ Ciara and local fishermen will be involved in the search over the weekend. By Gráinne Ní Aodha Image: Eamonn Farrell/ Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 8 Comments Share528 Tweet Email1 Image: Eamonn Farrell/ 15,426 Views A NUMBER OF emergency services and local fishermen will be collaborating over the weekend to try and find the two missing crewmembers from Rescue 116.The wreckage of the downed Coast Guard helicopter was brought ashore on Wednesday, but there was no sign of missing crew members Paul Ormsby and Ciarán Smith.This Saturday, the Coast Guard in Malin in conjunction with RNLI and Navy will assist with coordinating the surface search by a large number of fishing vessels that have offered their services.The Naval Service ship LÉ Ciara will also be on scene ready to assist where required.The Coast Guard is requesting all vessels in the north Mayo-south Donegal area keep a look-out for any debris in the course of their routine activities and to report any findings to the Malin Head Coast Guard Coordination Centre.It’s thought that local knowledge of tides and currents will be crucial in the search effort. The Coast Guard reiterated the importance of adherence to basic safety by searchers at sea or onshore. Source: Eamonn Farrell/RollingNews.ieThe Coast Guard has expressed their ongoing appreciation to the many volunteers supporting the search – in particular the RNLI and Civil Defence as well as the tremendous local community support.Captain Dara Fitzpatrick was recovered soon after the helicopter went down, but died later in hospital.
