These cameras are not currently allowed nor prohibited under state law.Last year saw more than 1,300 work zone crashes on Indiana’s interstate highways, with 409 tickets issued.

Dec 27, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave its blessing last week to the use of the antiviral drug oseltamivir (Tamiflu) to prevent influenza in children between the ages of 1 and 12.The FDA had previously approved oseltamivir for treating (but not preventing) flu in that age-group and for both treating and preventing flu in adolescents and adults. Many countries are stockpiling the drug to prepare for a possible flu pandemic.In announcing its move, the FDA cited a study of the spread of flu in households. The study involved more than 1,100 people, including 222 children aged 1 to 12 years.When someone in the household came down with flu, other household members received either no treatment (unless they became ill) or oseltamivir once a day for 10 days. Three percent of those who received the drug contracted flu, versus 17% of those who received no preventive treatment, the FDA said.”The benefit in children mirrored the benefit seen in older individuals in this and earlier studies,” the agency said.The indicated dosage for preventive use in children is 30 to 60 milligrams per day, depending on body weight, for 10 days, according to Roche Pharmaceuticals, manufacturer of oseltamivir, a Swiss-based company with US headquarters in Nutley, N.J. Preventive use should begin within 48 hours after exposure to the virus, the company said.”The approval of Tamiflu in this indication enables doctors to have a safe and effective medicine at hand to help prevent young children from getting influenza,” said William M. Burns, CEO of Roche’s Pharma division, in a company news release. The company noted that children younger than 2 years are as likely as those over age 65 to be hospitalized if they get the flu.In studies, side effects of the prophylactic use of oseltamivir were similar to the side effects of treatment, the FDA said. The most common side effects were nausea, vomiting, headache, and fatigue. Vomiting was more common with twice-daily dosing than with once-daily dosing.”In the current study, children reported higher rates of vomiting than adults but this was observed to be dose-related,” the FDA said. No new side effects were seen in the study, but the agency has asked Roche for more post-marketing data on the safety of the drug.In November the FDA announced that a thorough review of post-marketing safety data on oseltamivir had revealed a few reports of severe rash and allergic-like skin reactions that might have been drug-related. As a result, the agency ordered that a new warning about the possibility of serious skin reactions be added to the drug label.In the same safety review, the FDA also examined reports of 12 deaths in Japanese children who were taking oseltamivir and concluded that the deaths were unrelated to the drug. The agency determined that the deaths were part of a wave of flu-related encephalitis and encephalopathy cases in Japanese children that began before oseltamivir was approved.See also:Dec 22 FDA news releaseDec 22 Roche news releaseNov 18, 2005, CIDRAP News story “FDA panel: children’s deaths unrelated to Tamiflu”
Great place to kick off the footy boots. Picture: CoreLogicHis situation seems somewhat removed from fellow Gold Coast coach Neil Henry, who was ousted from the Titans on Monday. At this stage Mr Henry doesn’t seem to have plans to budge from the area. He and wife Catherine bought an $840,000 “seachange” house in Tugun three years ago. There has been no movement on that property as yet, a sign that he has no plans to move just yet. Among his accomplishments, Henry has previously had stints as a writer and commentator so who knows where he could pop up next.

Picture: Quinn Rooney/Getty ImagesIT’S been a horror month for coaches of major Queensland teams, with two ousted in the last two weeks – but property moves seem to indicate at least one may have a new gig lined up.Judging by his property manoeuvres, ousted Gold Coast Suns coach Rodney Eade may already have a new direction in play just over a week after being let go.A luxury two bed unit in Main Beach that he bought for $960,000 two and a half years ago has hit the rental market within a week of his shock departure. The former Suns’ coach was looking to land $800 a week for the two bedroom unit which was available for 12 month or two year leases. The renovated apartment has views of the Broadwater and has been renovated.Eade had left the Suns immediately after he was told that his contract would not be renewed, which apparently gave him the dubious honour of becoming the first Aussie Rules coach let go this season. The view to the Broadwater is quintessential Goldie. Picture: CoreLogic Neil Henry has no plans to leave the Gold Coast vicinity as yet. Picture. Phil HillyardThere’s precedent for hanging on to property even after moving on from coaching jobs on the coast. The man Henry replaced, John Cartwright, has kept a foothold on the coast for almost three years, despite taking assistant coaching gigs for the North Queensland Cowboys and then the Manly Sea Eagles.Cartwright bought a $935,000 villa in Currumbin four months after stepping down from the Titans coaching job and, right now, there’s no record of it being rented out. Former Titans coach John Cartwright still has a villa on the Gold Coast waiting for his return. Picture: Mark Evans

Penguins right wing Jarome Iginla (12) goes up and over Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk (55) as they battle for the puck during the second overtime period in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals in the Stanley Cup playoffs in Boston, June 5. The Bruins beat the Penguins 2-1 in 2OT on a Patrice Bergeron goal. That set off a celebration in Boston — the first for the Bruins at home after they won the first two games of the series in Pittsburgh 3-0 and 6-1. It is the first time all season that Pittsburgh has lost three consecutive games. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)by Bill Neal• The passing of the now late great Deacon Jones is not only the loss of a true and original legend, but an innovator as well. Not only did he create the vicious and brutal head slap, but he also named what we now know as “the Sack.”• When MLB brings the hammer down on A-Rod and the other alleged offenders, they will still be about 100 short of all PED’s offenders.• Elgin Baylor, Connie “The Hawk” Hawkins, Julius “Dr. J.” Irving, Michael Jordan, Kobe “Black Momba” Bryant and now LeBron “King James” James. The greatest of all time…will come again!• Hearts certainly go out to the family of Monica Murphy, the mother of five killed in a car accident by former NBA star Mookie Blaylock in Clayton County Georgia. So far, tests indicate that Blaylock had no drugs or alcohol in his system and apparently suffered a seizure of some sort and it may be just a tragic accident.• I don’t know much about hockey. In fact, I don’t know anything about hockey. However, I do know this: no team has ever come back from 0-3 to win the Eastern Conference Title!
Facebook295Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The Olympia School DistrictCurtis Cleveringa, who has served the past two years as principal and athletic director in the Taholah School District, has been selected to lead Capital High School as its next principal.The Olympia School Board unanimously agreed during the March 7 school board meeting to hire Cleveringa. He officially takes over the Capital High principal post on July 1.Cleveringa was selected for the top high school post after an extensive principal search process led by Northwest Leadership Associates. Search firm consultants worked with Olympia School District staff and parent focus groups since December first to identify the desired characteristics for the next principal, and then to search throughout the Pacific Northwest for the best candidate.Consultants involved students, staff and parents in the process, including interviews last month with the top three finalists.“Curtis Cleveringa will be an outstanding addition to Capital High School,” said Superintendent Dick Cvitanich. “He is a proven leader and someone who will fit in well at Capital and as part of our larger school district community.”Cleveringa has worked since 2014 in the Taholah School District, located on the Quinault Indian Reservation in Grays Harbor County. Before that he worked one year as an administrative intern in Utah, preceded by 15 years as a classroom teacher — six years in Utah and nine years in Zillah, Washington. During many of those years, he also served as a high school basketball and football coach.He has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Washington State University, a master’s degree in educational administration from University of Phoenix, and is working toward his superintendent’s credential through Washington State University.This year, the Capital High School principal job is being shared as an interim one-year position by Michelle Anderson and Jennifer Hewitt. Both Anderson and Hewitt will return in the 2016-17 school year to their previous positions as assistant principal at Capital High School.

National left back Lance Laing has joined Major League Soccer (MLS)-designate club, Minnesota United FC, the club announced on Tuesday on its website through the link http://www.nasl.com/news/2015/12/15/jamaican-international-lance-laing-j….Laing is one of six NASL All-Star selections this year to be snapped up by Minnesota, who are hoping the Jamaican can add to their record-setting offence as they look to make the step up from the North American Soccer League (NASL) to the more prestigious and lucrative MLS by the 2017 or 2018 season.Minnesota’s sporting director, Manny Lagos, told NASL.com news they played against Laing for many years in the NASL and are excited to get the player.”Seeing his growth from Fort Lauderdale to last season in Edmonton gives us the belief he will continue to grow and excel. As a player, he always presented us with challenges to play against and we’re just really excited to have a player like that on the roster,” he stated.The 27-year-old has played every NASL season since the modern-era league began in 2011 and is the only player to be named in the NASL Best 11 three times. He has been a NASL All-Star for the last two years.The Trelawny native first represented his country at the Under-17 level. He made his national senior team debut in 2008 against El Salvador and most recently played in the 2015 Copa America, where he starred against Lionel Messi and Argentina and the 2015 Gold Cup, helping Jamaica to a historic second-place finish behind Mexico.He began his professional career in 2007 at Harbour View FC and moved after three seasons to his native parish club Village United, then playing the local top-flight. The defender then moved to Fort Lauderdale Strikers, where he played for two years.”I’m very happy to be cheered on by Dark Clouds and their fans. I have always felt (from) playing here that Minnesota fans are the best in the League and I can’t wait to be on the right side of their cheers. It’s an honour to be joining a team that has so many great players and great coaches. It’s going to be a great team to be a part of,” Laing told NASL.com.
Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has called on the Government to intervene and take action on the ongoing crises of insurance premiums are increasing by 50% to 80 % or more in some cases.The Donegal Deputy says the increases are placing unsustainable pressure on motorists seeking to renew their annual premiums.Statistical analysis of insurance claims for the period 2010 to 2014 shows that insurance claims pay-outs were static and showed no significant increases in payout levels in Ireland, he added. The Chief Executive of the Injuries Board in his evidence to the Dail Committee on Insurance premiums stated “the average insurance payout claim has risen by €400 in the past 8 years” but over the same period insurance premiums have risen by multiples of that.Pat the Cope called on the Government to take real action rather than just talking about action and tackle the crises on insurance premiums hikes, which for the third year in a row costs are spiralling out of control for Irish motorists.“Previously I called on the Government to re-establish the Motor Insurance Advisory Board and to open the insurance market to European Insurance companies under the free movement of goods and services, which many transcontinental haulage companies are currently doing and availing of much cheaper insurance premiums within the EU by obtaining Insurance on the continent rather than here.“No other European country is experiencing premiums hikes to the level as Ireland at present, in an average of 8 European counties the level of increase is only 3% over the past 2 years,” stated Pat the Cope. The cost of insurance is now a major concern for every motorist and it is rapidly becoming beyond the reach of many motorists who depend on their car or van for their livelihood, and yet nothing seems to be done by the Government, he added.“All options have to put on the table in order to solve this crises and further time cannot be wasted talking about solutions – action needs to be taken by the Minister of State Eoghan Murphy and his Department,” added Deputy Gallagher.The burden of this crises has to be lifted from the backs of the ordinary motorist and it is only the Government that can intervene and take the necessary actions and measures to counter act the hikes in insurance premiums, he concluded.No progress by Govt on insurance hike saga – Pat the Cope was last modified: October 5th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
