Fifth of patients ‘shun HIV test’

first_img Share As UK experts call for universal HIV testing in a bid to reduce infections, latest figures reveal a fifth offered the test at a sexual health clinic refused to have it.The Health Protection Agency is concerned too few people know their HIV status, meaning many are treated too late and risk passing it on.It says growing numbers of people are now catching the virus within the UK.And cases diagnosed in men who have sex with men have reached an all time high. The figuresThe number of people living with HIV in the UK reached an estimated 91,500 in 2010, up from 86,500 the year before, with a quarter of those unaware of their infection.Some 6,660 people were newly diagnosed with HIV in the UK last year. Data revealed infections likely acquired within the UK almost doubled in the last decade from 1,950 in 2001 to 3,640 in 2010 and exceed those acquired abroad. This rise is mostly due to infections acquired among men who have sex with men, who remain the group most at risk of HIV infection in the UK, says the HPA.In 2010, over 3,000 gay men were diagnosed with HIV – the highest ever annual number. One in 20 gay men is now infected with HIV nationally and in London the figure is one in 11.The report also revealed that in 2010, one in five people visiting a sexual health or genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic did not accept an HIV test.Over half of the people diagnosed in 2010 came forward for testing after the point at which treatment for their infection should ideally have begun, which greatly worsens their prognosis.The Health Protection Agency (HPA) wants universal testing for the infection in all new GP registrants and patients admitted to hospital in the areas of the country where there are high rates of HIV.Testing callEight pilot projects have been carried out across England testing over 11,000 patients in hospitals and GP surgeries. These successfully diagnosed 51 new cases of HIV, giving an overall detection rate of four in every thousand tests carried out. The HPA says this shows that universal testing would be feasible, cost-effective and acceptable.But experience also shows not all those offered a test will agree to have one. Dr Valerie Delpech, consultant epidemiologist and head of HIV surveillance at the HPA, says this has to change. “People probably do not understand how easy it is to diagnose HIV and that with early treatment their chances of survival are near to normal.“We are very concerned that a large number of people in the UK are unaware of their HIV status and are diagnosed late.“We encourage all people to take up the offer of an HIV test in whatever health care setting.”The HPA envisages a future when no one leaves the GUM clinic without knowing their HIV status.Just under 4% of England’s population was tested for HIV in 2010. The bulk of these were people attending GUM clinics or women going for pregnancy check-ups.Deborah Jack of the National AIDS Trust said it was time to eradicate people’s fear about getting tested for HIV. “People shouldn’t be scared of HIV testing, but they should be scared of undiagnosed HIV. “The advances in HIV treatment have been one of the biggest success stories in the 30 years since the virus first emerged, but too many people test too late and so fail to benefit from these drugs.”The Department of Health is due to publish a new Sexual Health Policy Framework in the Spring which will consider how to promote more HIV testing, especially in areas of high prevalence.By Michelle RobertsHealth reporter, BBC News Share 40 Views   one comment Sharecenter_img Tweet Sharing is caring!

Ellsworth boys’ basketball hangs on to beat Central

first_imgELLSWORTH — The boys’ basketball game seemed over at halftime Wednesday night. Ellsworth players jogged off the court with a 43-21 lead over Central.“It was probably our best half of the year. Everything was just clicking,” Ellsworth coach Peter Austin said. “Our second half was one of our worst.”The visiting Red Devils cut the deficit from 22 points to five by the fourth quarter. But the Eagles made 23 of 25 free throws to help seal their 71-60 win.Ellsworth started the game strong, outscoring Central 24-9 in the first quarter.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“The press was working, and our shots were falling,” Austin said. “The shots we took in the first half just weren’t falling in the second half.”The opposite was the case for Central, which outscored Ellsworth 18-6 in the third period.Austin said he didn’t know much about Central coming into the game, since the team had recently jumped up from Class C to Class B as a result of the Maine Principals Association’s reclassification this season.“I’d heard some reports they liked to press,” Austin said. “I thought they were going to play some zone, but they played man the whole time.”Ellsworth’s struggles continued into the final period. With six minutes remaining and the Eagles leading 51-39, Central hit a 3-pointer. The Red Devils then forced Ellsworth turnovers on the following two plays and capitalized on both with fast-break layups to make the score 51-46.“Seems like we’re a first half team, but I’d like to be the second half team,” Austin said. “We need to learn how to close out games better.”Ellsworth’s second-half funk resembled its season-opening 63-57 win at Foxcroft, when the Eagles’ 16-point lead diminished to just two in the fourth quarter.However, the Eagles did show improvement on the foul line, where they scored 13 points in the final six minutes.“We finally made some free throws,” Austin said. “That was our nemesis in preseason and the first game.”Ellsworth (2-0) put four players in double-digits, with Bryce Harmon scoring 17 points. Bruce St. Peter had 16 while Nick Bagley and Zach Harris each chipped in 13.Central (1-1) was led by Andrew Prescott with a game-high 22 points, including five 3-pointers.“I shouldn’t say it was one of our worst halves,” Austin said. “We did make foul shots, and we did win.“A win’s a win.”Find photos of this game here.GSA 62, Bucksport 41George Stevens Academy (4-0) notched its fourth win of the season Tuesday night over Bucksport (2-1).Searsport 66, Sumner 58Grant Barrett poured in a game-high 38 points to carry Searsport (3-2) to victory over Sumner (2-3) on Tuesday.Alex O’Hara led Sumner with 19 points.

Football News Cristiano Ronaldo scores sensational goal, Juventus beat Empoli in thrilling Serie A clash

first_imgNew Delhi: Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice, including a thunderous 25-yard drive, as Italian champions Juventus surged seven points clear in Serie A on Saturday following a battling 2-1 victory at Empoli.  Empoli, without a win since the opening weekend of the season, grabbed a 28th-minute lead at the Stadio Carlo Castellani as Francesco Caputo curled home following a lung-busting run by Afriyie Acquah. But Juventus turned to their 100-million-euro man Ronaldo in the second half, as the Portugal forward equalised from the spot before blasting home a magnificent second to secure a ninth win in 10 Serie A matches for Massimiliano Allegri’s team.Read More | Leicester City owner’s helicopter crashes near stadium, casualties feared”It was a very complicated game. We knew it would be difficult, especially after a Champions League tie and we were a bit tired,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia. “We stayed in the game, increased our possession, created more chances after the break and in the end deserved the victory. “I don’t remember the goal very well, I’ll have to watch it again! It all happened very quickly, but I felt confident and I went for the goal.”Read More | David Warner walks off during cricket match after ‘hurtful’ sledgeAfter Caputo’s opener, the hosts appealed for a penalty when Miha Zajc’s shot glanced the arm of Leonardo Bonucci as he attempted to charge down the attempt, but the referee opted against punishing the Italy defender after reviewing the incident on video. Empoli goalkeeper Ivan Provedel pulled off two spectacular saves in quick succession to thwart Alex Sandro and Miralem Pjanic early in the second half, as Juventus — who beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in midweek — saw their unbeaten record come under threat. Provedel flung himself in front of a firmly-hit effort by Sandro from close range, and then sprang acrobatically to his right to touch a Pjanic drive onto the crossbar as Empoli failed to clear after the initial attack. ‘Moment of magic’ But Juve hit back when Paulo Dybala pinched the ball off a dallying Ismael Bennacer in the Empoli box, drawing a penalty as the Algeria midfielder proceeded to bundle over the Argentine. Ronaldo sent Provedel the wrong way from the spot to score for the third league game running and bring Juve level on 54 minutes, as the turmoil of rape allegations do not appear to be unsettling the Portuguese forward on the pitch. After last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Genoa, Ronaldo completed a much more successful week for Juve as he unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top left corner 20 minutes from time. “I told the lads, this was a game we had to win, it didn’t matter how well or badly we played,” said Allegri. “The goal was a moment of magic from an extraordinary player and it’s something kids will try to copy in the schoolyard.”An own goal by Fiorentina goalkeeper Alban Lafont allowed Torino to make it five games without defeat following a 1-1 draw, while Atalanta collected a second win on the trot as they beat promoted Parma 3-0. Second-place Napoli can return to within four points of Juve on Sunday when they host Roma, and Inter Milan will bid for a sixth straight league victory at Lazio on Monday.

Cindy McCain honored at Rossier event

first_imgPresident Steven B. Sample and Cindy McCain were recognized at the Rossier School of Education’s Centennial Gala Monday night for their contributions to global education.Maverick · Rossier alumna Cindy McCain was given an award Monday in honor of her humanitarian efforts and her work in education. Sen. John McCain presented the award. – Gary Fung | Daily Trojan McCain, who attended USC for her undergraduate degree in education and graduate degree in special education, was awarded the Dean’s Alumni Achievement Award.“I’m so touched and so honored because never did I ever think I would be here at this stage in my life receiving an honor from this school,” she said.McCain has led several humanitarian trips to improve the educational opportunities of children worldwide. During her time at USC, she volunteered for local special education programs.“It was really a good time to be a part of it all,” she said of her experience and involvement in efforts to get federal funding for special needs children and provide them with proper educations.“When you’re young, you don’t realize how it’s shaping you, what it’s doing for you and really how much you have gained from the experience of being here. Being able to look back on it now, it’s shaped certainly my attitude toward global involvement and doing what I do around the world,” McCain said.McCain, who taught children with disabilities at an Arizona high school after her graduation, said she plans to return to teaching when things settle down.“I miss it actually,” she said. “I’ll go back to teaching because I really enjoy it.”The gala was part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the USC Rossier School of Education.“It is fitting that during our centennial year, we pay tribute to two such committed educators,” Rossier Dean Karen Symms Gallagher said in a statement. “Both Mrs. McCain’s and President Sample’s professional work and personal passion exemplify the USC Rossier School’s mission to improve educational outcomes locally, nationally and globally.”At the gala, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) presented the Dean’s Alumni Achievement Award to his wife, whose Global Educator Fellowship will enable aspiring teachers and school educators to contribute to the education of youth on a global level.“Someone will have the opportunity to do what I do,” Cindy McCain said. “The one thing that I have learned from all of this is that people to people and educator to educator around the world, when they see a U.S. educator coming, in some way it’s like everything is going to be so much better. We’re not the answer to everything, but we certainly are willing to give it our all and work hard for it.”Sample was honored for transforming USC into a global university during his 19 years as its president and for his contributions to teaching and mentoring students throughout his career.“In some ways, it gives me more credit than I deserve,” Sample said. “What I like about it is the whole academic community here at USC has been behind this globalization, both in the ways we teach and in the ways we do research. I’m honored, I’m humbled, I probably don’t deserve it, but I’ll take it.”Sample’s Global Educator Fellowship will be offered to Rossier doctoral candidates for international study in Latin America and the Pacific Rim, where he co-founded the Association of Pacific Rim Universities for the advancement of international collaborative research.“We get more international students now than any other American university, which I think is good for our domestic students,” Sample said. “It exposes them to different cultures and different peoples in a way that nothing else really can.”Sample said he feels the entire university is strengthened by the advancements of the Rossier School under Dean Karen Symms Gallagher and benefits the Trojan family.Along with the awards presented to Sample and McCain, the proceeds from the gala will go toward fellowships established in honor of both the award recipients. The fellowships will benefit future Rossier students.“The gift of education is a gift of life,” McCain said.last_img read more

Fresh off bye, skillful Badgers begin WCHA play

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald PhotoGoaltenders practicing sumo wrestling moves, multi-million dollar insurance policies flicking pucks at each other and the No. 3 draft pick playing the head coach one-on-one during practice are signs that the UW men’s hockey team has exhausted its time off. “These days have dragged by here so it’s time to put on the skates and play against somebody else,” head coach Mike Eaves said. While beneficial in building team chemistry and gaining experience through repetition, receiving an early schedule bye last weekend has been unbearable to say the least.Finally, the team gets to play again. No. 10 Wisconsin (3-1, 0-0 WCHA) will open up conference play against No. 13 Michigan Tech (4-2, 3-1 WCHA) this weekend at the Kohl Center. “Our focus becomes having a great start,” Eaves said. “And hopefully the time that we’ve had, we’ve worked on some repetitions and the way we want to play, and we’ve competed hard in practice and going against a team like Michigan Tech that’s its strength, they play hard and we hope to go from there.” From the opening face-off, forward Kyle Turris and the rest of the freshmen class are going to find out what the WCHA season is all about.“We haven’t played a WCHA game yet so we’re chomping at the bit to get going to see what it’s like,” Turris said. “I hear it’s quite a bit different from what we have been playing, so we’re pretty excited, and everybody’s working hard to not let each other down.”Michigan Tech has already played two series within the WCHA, against Minnesota State and North Dakota, winning three of four times. Even so, UW goaltender Shane Connelly doesn’t believe the Huskies’ conference experience should come into play — unless Wisconsin lets it by getting off to a sluggish start.“It could give them the advantage if we let them by not coming out and playing sharp from the start,” Connelly said. “But we’re fresh, they might be banged up.” As loose as Connelly, first-round picks Turris, Ryan McDonagh and Brendan Smith and the rest of the Badgers keep practice, wrestling each other and joking around, they understand that conference play is hostile. “It’s going to be a war, there’s going to be a lot of hitting,” Connelly said. “From our end, they roughed us up a little bit last year when we went up to Houghton, Mich., and we got a chance to beat them in the Final Five so there’s not too much liking between these two teams.“It’s two big games, and we need these points to start off right.”On the same account, the rabid Huskies are accustomed to a smaller-sized rink — the Kohl Center ice is NHL sized — and the skill-laden Badgers should be able to use the open space to their advantage in not only avoiding hits but also scoring goals. “The larger ice allows us to use our skill sets more so we might be able to create some more in the open space and capitalize on the power play,” Turris said. Wisconsin had no problem scoring with the man advantage two weeks ago against Robert Morris. It capitalized on eight of 17 opportunities. Despite starting strong by scoring 22 goals in four games, Wisconsin had much to improve upon. “For our young team, I think it was a good thing [having the bye],” Eaves said. “Being so young, practice gave us a chance to get reps in the areas that we wanted to so that when we come out we’re more automatic in the way we want to play. “If we become a slave to our good habits, then chances are we’ll play well.”Turris, who leads the nation in points with 12 despite playing two less games, found himself playing one-on-one with UW’s all-time points leader, coach Eaves, at center ice toward the end of Thursday’s practice. The reason: The center wants to improve his defense. “I think from my standpoint, I’m showing him that — even though I’m an old guy — if he does the right things, he can contain to some degree a highly offensive player so that when he is in that situation he understands the technique that we talked about,” Eaves said. The Badgers are putting in the extra work, and now it’s time to get back out on the ice and play.last_img read more

Football: Four takeaways from Wisconsin’s stunning loss to Illinois

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin football team (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten) collapsed in the final minutes Saturday against the University of Illinois (3-4, 1-3), saying goodbye to their undefeated record and much of their College Football Playoff hopes along with it.Badger fans remember the team’s 24-21 loss at home against BYU last September, the loss that sent the then-No. 6 Badgers into a free fall that lasted all season. This loss is different. The Badgers weren’t dominated on the line of scrimmage Saturday like they were against BYU, they weren’t unable to move the ball through the air like during last year’s loss and they didn’t allow a 100-yard rusher. Head Coach Paul Chryst’s team had the game in hand late in the fourth quarter and gifted the Fighting Illini a program-defining victory.At the end of the day, this was a game the Badgers needed to win if they wanted any shot at the College Football Playoff and losing as a 30-point favorite is indefensible. But this performance, again unlike the one against BYU a year ago, doesn’t mean they’re a bad team.Football: No. 6 Badgers fall to Illini after walk-off field goalThe surely former No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten) fell to Illinois (3-4, 1-3) in a shocking defeat Read…Here are four takeaways from Saturday’s loss.First, the loss in large part falls on Chryst’s decision-making and personnel decisions.Chryst has been aggressive this season on fourth down, something we haven’t seen much before.It has worked well so far but on Saturday he got a little too aggressive and went for it on fourth-and-8 on the Illinois 30-yard line up 10–0 midway through the second quarter. The play ended in a sack, became one of the Badgers three turnovers on the day and gave Illinois good field position which they turned into a touchdown.Then, with ten minutes left in the contest, Chryst made one of the strangest personnel decisions I’ve ever seen. The team was down to the Illinois 3-yard line with a 20-14 lead. Chryst proceeded to run the ball three times in a row, not surprising given the Badgers offensive line and rushing prowess. It was surprising that none of these runs included Jonathan Taylor, the team’s best player and the best running back in the country. Chryst ended up settling for a field goal and a nine-point lead, a lead which obviously didn’t hold as Illinois scored ten points in the final seven minutes and won the game.Football: Jonathan Taylor falters for first time this seasonMichigan State posed the first major challenge to Jonathan Taylor on the other side of the ball this season. Prior Read…The second takeaway is, aside from Chryst’s questionable decision making, Taylor’s fumble lost the game. It was Taylor’s first fumble of the season and came at the worst possible time. The team had the ball up nine points on the Illinois 25-yard line with seven minutes left in the game. A score in that situation would’ve iced the game and sent the Badgers into Columbus next weekend undefeated.Taylor lost the ball, Illinois scored to cut the lead to two, the Badgers gave the ball away again and the rest is history.The third takeaway from Saturday is Jack Coan was tremendous. Aside from the interception, which in reality wasn’t an awful throw — the Illinois defender just made an insane play on it — Coan played his best game as a Badger.He finished completing 24 of his 32 pass attempts for 264 yards, 8.3 yards-per-attempt, one touchdown and one interception.If there’s one positive takeaway from Saturday as the Badgers now prepare to play No. 3 The Ohio State University, it’s Coan’s performance and the Badgers’ ability to effectively move the ball through the air.Football: With strong offense, defense, could Paul Chryst finally capture Big Ten title?Entering the 2019 season, expectations were low for the University of Wisconsin football team. After finishing the year with a Read…The final takeaway from Saturday is that the defense fell completely flat when they were needed most.The unit allowed 315 total yards, 141 of which came on the ground. 315 total yards and 141 on the ground are both the highest totals the defense has allowed since the team’s final regular-season game of 2018 against Minnesota.Maybe the expectations have been set too high after the unit shutout four of their first six opponents, but 315 total yards against an average-at-best Illinois offense doesn’t bode well for their matchup against the nation’s most dynamic offense in The Ohio State University this weekend.The Badgers are back in action Saturday at 11 a.m. against the Buckeyes in Columbus.last_img read more
