Racing problems in the U.S.A. (1/5824)

The major problems of racing in the United States at the present time are caused by too much racing. This has led to too few horses and small fields. Consequently many owners and trainers are trying to enter their horses too frequently and to race them when they are not really fit to run. The desire to race horses as frequently as possible has led to constant pressure from horsemen through their organizations for so called "permissive medication". Started in the state of Colorado approximately ten years ago this has grown until finally there are only a few states, notably New York and New Jersey that have resisted the pressure. The drug that gave the opening wedge to permissive medication was phenylbutazone, but this in many states has led to the inclusion of other drugs including analgesics and drugs that veterinarians claim are needed for therapeutic purposes. Some states have endeavoured to control phenylbutazone medication by quantitation and while lower limits cause little difficulty, maximum allowable limits have caused problems and are not practical. While there has been no publicity to my knowledge about frusemide (furosemide, lasix) the abuse of this drug for so called "bleeders" is an example that may seriously interfere with drug detection in urine and its use should be confined to proven "bleeders" (i.e. horses suffering from epistaxis). Pre-race blood testing began roughly ten years ago at the harness tracks and has been resisted by our flat tracks rather successfully up to the present time. The blood testing methods and those used by the same laboratories in post-race urine testing is inadequate and will not detect many illegal drugs.  (+info)

Bioterrorism alleging use of anthrax and interim guidelines for management--United States, 1998. (2/5824)

From October 30 through December 23, 1998, CDC received reports of a series of bioterroristic threats of anthrax exposure. Letters alleged to contain anthrax were sent to health clinics on October 30, 1998, in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. During December 17-23 in California, a letter alleged to contain anthrax was sent to a private business, and three telephone threats of anthrax contamination of ventilation systems were made to private and public buildings. All threats were hoaxes and are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement officials. The public health implications of these threats were investigated to assist in developing national public health guidelines for responding to bioterrorism. This report summarizes the findings of these investigations and provides interim guidance for public health authorities on bioterrorism related to anthrax.  (+info)

Tuberculosis outbreaks in prison housing units for HIV-infected inmates--California, 1995-1996. (3/5824)

During 1995-1996, staff from the California departments of corrections and health services and local health departments investigated two outbreaks of drug-susceptible tuberculosis (TB). The outbreaks occurred in two state correctional institutions with dedicated HIV housing units. In each outbreak, all cases were linked by IS6110-based DNA fingerprinting of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates. This report describes the investigations of both outbreaks; the findings indicated that M. tuberculosis can spread rapidly among HIV-infected inmates and be transmitted to their visitors and prison employees, with secondary spread to the community.  (+info)

The managed care revolution: how medical technologists have tolerated the change. (4/5824)

A repeated cross-sectional study on the psychological profiles and interpersonal styles of highly stressed medical technologists (perfusionists) has found remarkable consistency in internal psychological profiles and differences in interpersonal dynamics over a 6-year period. Six years ago a longitudinal study was begun to track the psychological profiles of perfusionists. Surgeons can repair cardiac defects only after a beating heart has been stopped. In order for the brain and other organs to survive cardiac surgery, they must be perfused with well-oxygenated blood. As a result, the life of every cardiac surgery patient literally sits in the hands of the cardiac perfusionist. The stress of placing patients on and off the 'pump' is one that is experienced by cardiovascular perfusionists on a daily basis. This stress has been likened to that of air traffic controllers who continually prepare planes for take off and/or landing. In the 6 years between studies, medical technologists have changed very little psychologically. They remain very well balanced. However, there have been significant changes in their interpersonal behaviours. Instead of the 'well-balanced' interpersonal profiles of 6 years ago, there is a higher degree of assertiveness/aggressiveness being reported. Managed Care has begun to impact interpersonal behaviours but has not yet altered the more resilient platform of internal psychological balance.  (+info)

Premature morbidity from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in women with systemic lupus erythematosus. (5/5824)

OBJECTIVE: To determine rates of morbidity due to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases among women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: I used the California Hospital Discharge Database, which contains information on all discharges from acute care hospitals in California, to identify women with SLE who had been hospitalized for treatment of either acute myocardial infarction (AMI), congestive heart failure (CHF), or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) from 1991 to 1994. I compared the proportions of hospitalizations for each cause among women with SLE with those in a group of women without SLE, for 3 age strata (18-44 years, 45-64 years, and > or =65 years). RESULTS: Compared with young women without SLE, young women with SLE were 2.27 times more likely to be hospitalized because of AMI (95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.08-3.46), 3.80 times more likely to be hospitalized because of CHF (95% CI 2.41-5.19), and 2.05 times more likely to be hospitalized because of CVA (95% CI 1.17-2.93). Among middle-aged women with SLE, the frequencies of hospitalization for AMI and CVA did not differ from those of the comparison group, but the risk of hospitalization for CHF was higher (odds ratio [OR] 1.39, 95% CI 1.05-1.73). Among elderly women with SLE, the risk of hospitalization for AMI was significantly lower (OR 0.70, 95% CI 0.51-0.89), the risk of hospitalization for CHF was higher (OR 1.25, 95% CI 1.01-1.49), and the risk of hospitalization for CVA was not significantly different from those in the comparison group. CONCLUSION: Young women with SLE are at substantially increased risk of AMI, CHF, and CVA. The relative odds of these conditions decrease with age among women with SLE.  (+info)

Personal exposure to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica in California agriculture. (6/5824)

AIMS: The aim of this study was to measure personal exposure to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica during various agricultural operations in California over a period of one year. METHODS: Ten farms were randomly selected in Yolo and Solano counties and workers were invited to wear personal sampling equipment to measure inhalable and respirable dust levels during various operations. The samples were analysed for endotoxin using the Limulus Amebocyte Lysate assay and crystalline silica content using X-ray diffraction. In total 142 inhalable samples and 144 respirable samples were collected. RESULTS: The measurements showed considerable difference in exposure levels between various operations, in particular for the inhalable fraction of the dust and the endotoxin. Machine harvesting of tree crops (Geometric mean (GM) = 45.1 mg/m3) and vegetables (GM = 7.9 mg/m3), and cleaning of poultry houses (GM = 6.7 mg/m3) showed the highest inhalable dust levels. Cleaning of poultry houses also showed the highest inhalable endotoxin levels (GM = 1861 EU/m3). Respirable dust levels were generally low, except for machine harvesting of tree crops (GM = 2.8 mg/m3) and vegetables (GM = 0.9 mg/m3). Respirable endotoxin levels were also low. For the inhalable dust fraction, levels were reduced considerably when an enclosed cabin was present. The percentage of crystalline silica was overall higher in the respirable dust samples than the inhalable dust samples. CONCLUSIONS: Considerable differences exist in personal exposure levels to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica during various agricultural operations in California agriculture with some operations showing very high levels.  (+info)

Major histocompatibility complex differentiation in Sacramento River chinook salmon. (7/5824)

The chinook salmon of the Sacramento River, California, have been reduced to a fraction of their former abundance because of human impact and use of the river system. Here we examine the genetic variation at a major histocompatibility complex class II exon in the four Sacramento chinook salmon runs. Examination of the alleles found in these and other chinook salmon revealed nucleotide patterns consistent with selection for amino acid replacement at the putative antigen-binding sites. We found a significant amount of variation in each of the runs, including the federally endangered winter run. All of the samples were in Hardy-Weinberg proportions. A significant amount of genetic differentiation between runs was revealed by several measures of differentiation. Winter run was the most genetically divergent, while the spring, late-fall, and fall runs were less differentiated.  (+info)

Farm worker illness following exposure to carbofuran and other pesticides--Fresno County California, 1998. (8/5824)

In California, suspected pesticide-related illnesses and suspected work-related illnesses and injuries are reportable conditions. On July 31, 1998, the Occupational Health Branch of the California Department of Health Services (CDHS) received a report from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) of a pesticide exposure incident in Fresno County involving 34 farm workers. CDHS investigated this incident by reviewing medical records of the 34 workers and interviewing 29. The findings indicated that the workers became ill after early reentry into a cotton field that had been sprayed with a cholinesterase-inhibiting carbamate pesticides  (+info)

Washington-Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today introduced the Restoration of Essential Conveyance Act, a bill to authorize $800 million in federal funding to repair critical canals in the San Joaquin Valley damaged by land sinking from overpumping of groundwater, known as subsidence, and for environmental restoration. If the canals are not restored to their original capacity, 20 percent of the farmland - approximately 1 million acres - might have to be retired in a region that produces $36 billion in crops annually, including a third of the nations produce.. Representatives Jim Costa and TJ Cox (both D-Calif.) have introduced similar legislation in the House.. "We have to find better ways to use the water we have," said Senator Feinstein. "Restoring the San Joaquin Valleys canals is one of the most efficient ways to improve the sustainability of Californias water supply. It would allow us to capture more winter storm floodwaters and use that extra water to offset necessary reductions in ...

SAN DIEGO (CN) - San Diego County health officials said Tuesday another person has died in the hepatitis A outbreak gripping the region, as the city works to remove tons of trash from streets and riverbeds to curb the public health crisis.. A total of 18 people in San Diego County have died from the disease, which spreads through contaminated food and water, contact with an infected person and poor sanitation. Another possible death is awaiting confirmation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, county public health officer Dr. Wilma Wooten told the San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday.. As of Tuesday, there have been 490 cases of hepatitis A in San Diego County, with 342 of those whove contracted the disease - 70 percent - hospitalized to treat the illness.. The county has spent $3 million to curb the outbreak, including $1.3 million on vaccines. It expects to spend $1.5 million a month going forward until the outbreak has subsided. County health officials said at a press conference ...
With the beginning of the 20th Century, so began the hunting and killing of albacore tuna for commercial use. The migratory patterns of the fish brought droves of albacore schools near the coastline of Southern California which sparked the start of commercial albacore fishing. In 1903, 700 cases of albacore were used as an experimental pack which ultimately lead to the development of the U.S. tuna canning industry. The experiment was a huge success and the commercial fishery expanded rapidly due to the high level of demand for canned tuna. The demand for tuna became higher than the supply of tuna, causing a significant loss in the albacore tuna population. By the 1920s, the industry expanded further and 3 other species of tuna, bluefin, yellowfin, and skipjack, were also being canned. However, the canning of other tuna species did not help the recovery of albacore tuna populations because it is the only tuna species that can be marketed as "white meat tuna". Fisheries use this label as a way to ...

Lori Saldaña (photo, right), former State Legislator posted on Facebook, "Heres the thing people need to understand about San Diego County: Latinos are 33% of the population and 60% of the COVID cases IDd so far.". Saldaña and other Latino advocates are raising serious concerns over the dangers posed by COVID-19 to Latino and Hispanic community members locally compared to the white majority. Why are Latinos locally suffering disproportionate rates of COVID-19 cases and mortalities?. One likely reason is that many Latinos are essential workers in jobs with frequent contact with the public, such as employees in grocery stores, hotels and medical facilities. Others have toiled in jobs that prior to recent orders, lacked social distancing and masks, such as farmworkers harvesting crops.. Estela de los Rios, a Latina community leader in El Cajon, believes reopening of restaurants and retail locally has occurred too soon.

A single 2 g dose of azithromycin effectively treats genitourinary infections caused by susceptible Neisseria gonorrhoeae and has been used to treat uncomplicated gonorrhea in persons with cephalosporin allergy. However, azithromycin is not recommended as monotherapy because of concern over the emergence of resistance. Instead, a 1 g dose of azithromycin is recommended as a component of dual therapy for gonorrhea, in conjunction with a cephalosporin (i.e., 250 mg of ceftriaxone or 400 mg of cefixime, if ceftriaxone is not an option). During January 1992--July 2009, of 87,566 N. gonorrhoeae isolates tested for azithromycin susceptibility by CDCs national Gonoccoccal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP), only 39 (0.04%) had minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) ≥8 µg/mL (including 25 with 8 µg/mL and 14 with 16 µg/mL), indicating reduced susceptibility; none of the isolates were collected in San Diego County, California (CDC, unpublished data, 2011).

The extent of amino acid racemization in Chione, Tivela, Mytilus, and Protothaca shells has been analyzed to estimate ages of seven raised marine terrace sites in San Diego County, California. Sites at Scripps and Crown Point are correlated with the Nestor terrace (120,000 yr old). Sites at Del Mar, Tecolote Creek, and Border Park are estimated to be about 200,000 yr old. A site at Morena Boulevard is somewhat more than 300,000 yr old, and a Linda Vista terrace site is too old to be dated by this method.. The ages of terraces derived in this and previous studies demonstrate tectonic activity in the area and suggest the need for reassessment of geomorphic correlations and for comparison of fossil assemblages of similar age for paleobiogeographic interpretation. Amino acid dating is a useful method for estimating the ages of raised marine terraces a few hundred thousand years old. ...

The exceedingly small size of existing marine reserves in Central California prevents them from achieving many of the goals and benefits attributed to marine reserves in the scientific literature. The number of fish and invertebrates inhabiting existing reserves is small, compared to the total population sizes of species in Central California. Existing reserves in Central California protect a variety of shallow water habitats and species, but do not provide reserve benefits for animals living in deeper water, unless they reside in existing reserves during a portion of their life. The older marine reserves in Central California show some of the primary benefits associated with protection from exploitation, including modest increases in size and abundance of fishes, but it is difficult to assess the degree to which these benefits represent pristine conditions. This is to be expected, as the primary fish species inhabiting these reserves (rockfishes) are slow growing and exhibit sporadic ...

The San Diego County Water Authority intensified its call for immediate water conservation following the state Department of Water Resources (DWR) October 30 announcement to limit water deliveries in 2009. The initial allocation - 15 percent - is the second lowest in the history of the State Water Project.. The announcement means that water agencies, including the Water Authority, that rely on the State Water project may receive far less water in 2009 than in 2008, which was a critically dry year. Last year, the initial allocation was 25 percent, and was eventually raised to 35 percent for the year. In recent years, San Diego County has received approximately 30 percent of its water supply from the State Water project.. Fern Steiner, Board Chair of the San Diego County Water Authority, said the news dramatically underscores the need for people to increase their water saving actions immediately..

Two major river systems drain and define the two parts of the Central Valley. The Sacramento River, along with its tributaries the Feather River and American River, flows southwards through the Sacramento Valley for about 447 miles (719 km).[22] In the San Joaquin Valley, the San Joaquin River flows roughly northwest for 365 miles (587 km), picking up tributaries such as the Merced River, Tuolumne River, Stanislaus River and Mokelumne River.[23] The Central Valley watershed encompasses over a third of California at 60,000 square miles (160,000 km2), with 46 percent draining into the Sacramento River, 26 percent into the San Joaquin, and 27 percent into Tulare Lake.. In the south part of the San Joaquin Valley, the alluvial fan of the Kings River and another one from Coast Ranges streams have created a divide and resultantly the currently dry Tulare basin of the Central Valley, into which flow four major Sierra Nevada rivers, the Kings, Kaweah, Tule and Kern.

Much of the blame falls most directly on the shoulders of many unqualified, biased, and even abusive judges who are harming children and families with their decisions in cases with devastating conflicts that are being encouraged by profit-seeking unethical lawyers and divorce industry service providers ...
Jean Noack Pratt (1916-2008), lived in Dixon, California. Her collection chronicles the lives of her ancestors, who were pioneers of Californias San Joaquin Valley. Pratt wrote three genealogical books, Finally California, The Noack-Haussler Story and A Van Fossen Family Genealogy. Pratts great-grandparents, Ernest Wagener (1811-1893) and Henrietta Eichoff (1824-1869) were emigrants from Germany. They were among the early settlers of San Joaquin Valley, ultimately settling on the Stanislaus River near Mariposa, California. The family ran the Zinc House stage coach stop which was located near Stockton on the French Camp Road. Their daughter, Louisa Christina Wagener (1853-1931), wrote a diary, which is the only known first-hand account of life at a stage coach stop in the San Joaquin Valley. Alfred Noack (1848-1922) married Louisa Christina Wagener. Noack worked in the threshing business. Walter Noack (1880-1949) was the son of Alfred and Louisa. He was an inventor and machinist, working for ...
By Miriam Raftery. Updated 12 p.m. to include comments from Pat Landis.. December 30, 2017 (Julian/Cuyamaca)-On January1st, the full-time staffed San Diego County Paramedic Fire Engine serving the Julian and Cuyamaca areas will be permanently closed. The action leaves the communities to rely solely on volunteer firefighters and one ambulance for fire and life safety services, which could lead to long delays in medical services if that unit is transportation a patient to a hospital, critics contend.. The paramedic engine had been providing fire and emergency medical response services 24 hours a day, seven days a week under a temporary agreement between the County of San Diego and the Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District. The CAL FIRE Firefighters that were assigned to the engine have been reassigned to other facilities within San Diego County.. The action comes after the Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District voted to reject consolidation with the County Fire Department and remain ...

An agreement between the San Diego County Water Authority, Coachella Valley Water District, Imperial Irrigation District, and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California signed in 2003. The QSA provides California a transition period to implement water transfers and supply programs that will reduce Californias over-dependence upon the Colorado River and reduce the states draw to its 4.4 million acre-foot annual apportionment, and clears the way for the annual transfer of up to 200,000 acre-feet of water from the Imperial Irrigation District to the Water Authority. An additional 77,700 acre-feet of water will flow annually to the Water Authority for 110 years through the lining of the All-American and Coachella canals. When the deliveries of the water are fully ramped up, San Diego County will receive nearly 280,000 acre-feet of new, highly reliable water supplies. The QSA also commits the state to a restoration path for the environmentally sensitive Salton Sea as well as full ...

The Central Valley Region is divided into three basins: the Sacramento River Basin, the San Joaquin River Basin, and the Tulare Lake Basin. The Sacramento Basin generally receives enough precipitation to dilute salinity. There are localized areas where groundwater is at risk from specific saline discharges, but viewed as a whole, the basin does not experience problem salinity. However, a portion of the salts originating in the Sacramento Basin reach the Delta pumps of the state and federal water projects and contribute to salinity problems in the San Joaquin Valley and other regions of the State.. The San Joaquin Basin receives considerably less rainfall than the Sacramento Basin. Supplemental irrigation is needed to support the multi-billion dollar agricultural industry that the Basin is famous for. Irrigation water is pulled in from the Delta and consists of a combination of Sacramento and San Joaquin River flows with their respective salt loads. Some of the imported, concentrated or mobilized ...

seizure-preventing medications called anticonvulsant or anti-epileptic (AED) drugs. While the medications do not cure epilepsy, they make it possible for many people to live normal, active lives completely free of seizures. Others may continue to have seizures, but less frequently.. If the drugs are not effective, other treatment methods may be used. Whenever possible, doctors try to prevent seizures with a single medication (monotherapy), although some people may need more than one medication (polytherapy) to achieve seizure control.. Like all drugs, antiepileptic medications may have both the desired effect of controlling seizures and undesirable side effects. Some of these are dose-related and occur only when a person is taking high levels of medication. Other side effects may occur regardless of dose and some may be an allergic type of reaction, such as a rash. It is important for the patient to use the medication as prescribed and inform the physician of any side effects. The following ...
The Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Unit is responsible for examining the scene of a crime, documenting the conditions present, and providing investigators, attorneys and ultimately the jury, with an accurate depiction of the locations and relationships of items located within the scene.

The unit preserves and collects the items deemed potential evidence, as well as process the items of evidence that are not removable from the scene. The evidence is delivered to the Crime Lab for forensic examination, and a report is prepared detailing the actions taken at the crime scene. The purpose of the CSI Unit is to help establish what occurred and to identify the responsible person. The ability to recognize and properly collect physical evidence is critical to solving violent crimes ...
SPRING VALLEY, SAN DIEGO COUNTY3 children dead in fireplace accidentThree young children were killed by a fireball that jumped from a fireplace as their cousin tried to stoke embers with gasoline, authorities said Thursday. A friend who was at the house when the fire broke out told a television crew that about a half-dozen people were watching a movie when their log fire started to go out. The childrens cousin tried to restart it by pouring gas on it, and flames leapt out of the fireplace and quickly engulfed the living room, according to Cameron Bartlett. Steve Castanedas decision to campaign for his council seat comes after being indicted in June by a San Diego County grand jury investigating whether he received special treatment when the apartment complex where he lived was converted into condominiums.

During the fall of 2017, while wildfires were raging throughout the state, another disaster was quietly unfolding. One of the largest hepatitis A outbreaks in decades was taking place, mostly in San Diego, Santa Cruz and Los Angeles counties. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus. Here in Sacramento, policymakers are trying to avoid a similar fate. So to help make sense of what has happened, whats been done and how to stay safe, here is a list of questions you might want to know the answers to.. WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED? Worldwide, hepatitis results in more than 1 million deaths a year, but here in the States, hepatitis A is not usually a major public health concern. In previous years, San Diego County, for example, had an average of 28 cases a year.. However, in 2017, those numbers spiked. As of Nov. 3, according to the California Department of Public Health, 644 people had contracted the disease, with 21 fatalities. Most cases have been ...

Every year in California thousands of wildfires start throughout the state. In most cases, the dispatch center sending the initial resources to a wildland fire will designate a name for the fire, but the first on scene engine or fire official can also name the incident. Fires are usually named for the area in which they start - a geographical location, local landmark, street, lake, mountain, peak, etc. Quickly naming the fire provides responding fire resources with an additional locater, and allows fire officials to track and prioritize incidents by name. For example during the Southern California Fire Siege of 2003, the largest wildland fire in California history, the Cedar Fire in San Diego County, was named after the Cedar Creek Falls area where it started. The destructive Old Fire, which burned during the same time period in San Bernardino County, was named after the road along which it started - Old Waterman Canyon Road ...

Beyond Pesticides, August 31, 2017) Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara report in a new study that exposure to pesticides as a result of living near agricultural areas increases the risk of giving birth to a baby with abnormalities. These results are more significant for those exposed to very high levels of pesticides, underscoring the continued risks faced by farmworkers and farmworker families, especially mothers living near chemically-intensive treated fields. The study, "Agricultural pesticide use and adverse birth outcomes in the San Joaquin Valley of California," looked at individual birth and demographic characteristics for over 500,000 birth observations between 1997 and 2011 in the agriculturally dominated San Joaquin Valley, California. The researchers, who report their findings as, "the most comprehensive to date, bringing together the largest data file ever compiled on street-address level birth outcomes and fine scale exposure to agricultural pesticides," ...
Beyond Pesticides, January 8, 2018) With a long-documented history of childrens exposure to pesticides that drift from agricultural fields to school yards, Californias new regulations establishing no-spray buffers took effort January 1, as labor and public health groups acknowledged the progress and inadequacy of the measure. The new rule, DPR 16-004 Pesticide Use Near Schoolsites, adopted by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR), prohibits many pesticide applications within a quarter mile of public K-12 schools and licensed child day-care facilities during school hours, Monday through Friday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. This includes all applications by aircraft, sprinklers, air-blast sprayers, and all fumigant applications. In addition, most dust and powder pesticide applications, such as sulfur, will also be prohibited during this time. The new rule was announced in November, 2017. Advocates say the new rules fail to address persistent low-level exposures associated with the ...

June 25, 2015 Westlands Drainage Settlement: A Primer Background The Westlands Water District provides water to users in the Western San Joaquin Valley. It is located within the San Luis Unit of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamations ("Reclamation") Central Valley Project. In its initial feasibility report for the San Luis Unit, Reclamation indicated that drainage facilities would be required to carry away waste irrigation water in order to prevent salt accumulations that would render the soil unfit for irrigation. For that reason, the San Luis Act, P.L. 86-488, 74 Stat. 156 (1960), which authorized the creation of the San Luis Unit, prohibited Reclamation from commencing construction of the San Luis Unit until it either received assurances from the state of California that it would provide a master drainage outlet for the San Joaquin Valley or Reclamation had provided for the construction of an "interceptor drain" (as described in Reclamations feasibility study) that would meet the drainage ...
