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..

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. She voices concerns over minority workers forced to return to jobs and ...

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 ...
My parents were farmers in rural Pakistan. They came from a place where rows of fruit trees compete with buildings, where its normal for children to discontinue their education to earn wages, where people sweat and labor with their hands.

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.. This initial allocation means water supplies statewide are approaching record low levels, said ...

Chemical and isotopic data for water co-extracted with hydrocarbons in oil and gas fields are commonly used to examine the source of the formation water and possible impacts on groundwater in areas of oil and gas development. Understanding the geochemical variability of oil-field water could help to evaluate its origin and delineate possible contamination of shallow aquifers in cases where oil-field water is released to the environment. Here we report geochemical and multiple isotope (H, C, O, Sr, Ra) data from 22 oil wells, three sources of produced water that are disposed of in injection wells, and two surface disposal ponds in four oil fields in the southern San Joaquin Valley, California (Fruitvale, Lost Hills, North and South Belridge). Correlations between Cl and δ18O, as well as other ions, and gradual increases in salinity with depth, indicate dilution of one or more saline end-members by meteoric water. The saline end-members, represented by deep samples (610 m-2621 m) in three oil-bearing
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. This basin, usually endorheic, ...

The South American palm weevil, Rhynchophorus palmarum (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), is well established in parts of San Diego County in California and is responsible for killing numerous Canary Islands date palms. The spectacular damage this invasive pest causes and the large showy adult weevils and alien-looking larvae and pupae, captured the imagination of Elliott Kennerson and Joshua Cassidy, digital media producers for the science show Deep Look with KQED Public Television and Radio in San Francisco. After a few phone calls and ensuing discussions, Elliott made the pitch to KQED to develop a story on the palm weevil and the project was given approval for development..

Mark Hoddles research has been featured by the New York Times on the South American palm weevil, Rhynchophorus palmarum, which has established in San Diego County and will likely become an unprecedented threat to urban palms, especially iconic Canary Island date palms, and it is probably a significant risk to Californias $68 million per year date industry in the Coachella Valley. This weevil has killed scores of Canary Island date palms in Tijuana Mexico. The South American palm weevil has spread north from Tijuana into San Ysidro as far as Chula Vista in San Diego County where it has been associated with dead palm trees.

Established in 1849, the San Joaquin County Sheriffs Department provides police services for San Joaquin County, California. The current sheriff is Steve Moore, who heads a department of over 800 sworn and support personnel. He also serves as the countys coroner. On 20 October 1989, Detective Dighton Little, SWAT team member, was shot by a suspect during a joint raid conducted with the Stanislaus County Sheriff. Little broke a window and was shot by the resident, Richard Elsass. The other members of the team then killed Elsass. Police found no evidence of any crime at the location. In 1994 the Elsass family was paid $175,000. In 1999, Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog, were arrested by the department, and subsequently convicted of four murders. They were dubbed the Speed Freak Killers, due to their long history of methamphetamine use. In 2012 Shermantine began to reveal the location of the bodies of his victims. His maps led the sheriff to a secret graveyard near Linden. The number of body ...

Abstract St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) virus has continued to be active in the Colorado Desert region of Southern California (Coachella and Imperial Valleys) since 1973, while it has virtually disappeared from the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys of Central California. Consequently, comparative vector competence studies were undertaken from 1978 to 1981 to evaluate the susceptibility of populations of Culex quinquefasciatus and Culex tarsalis from the San Joaquin and Coachella/Imperial Valleys to oral infection with representative SLE viral strains from each geographical area. Culex quinquefasciatus females from both areas were equally susceptible to infection with both viral strains by the pledget and viremic chick feeding techniques. Although susceptibility profiles were similar by both feeding techniques, infection thresholds (i.e., ID50s) obtained with Cx. quinquefasciatus females were at least 10,000-fold lower when fed on viremic chicks than on virus soaked pledgets. Culex tarslis females from

The surgeon begins the surgery by making a long vertical midline incision from symphysis pubis to the umbilicus, and the abdomen is opened. The surgeon then explores the peritoneal cavity for metastasis to the liver, the nodes of the celiac axis, the superior mesenteric artery, and the para-aortic tissues. The surgeon then explores the pelvis and the peritoneum along with the brim of the pelvis is examined for lymph node involvement. Frozen sections may be taken at this time to indicate negative margins. When findings of margins are negative, retractors are placed and the small bowel is isolated with moist laparotomy pads. The surgeon then frees the sigmoid colon and sections it with clamps and blade or stapling device. The promixal end is exteriorized through an opening on the left side of the abdomen and is left clamped until later when the colostomy is permanently secured to the patient. The remaining sigmoid mesentery is then clamped, cut, and ligated. The distal sigmoid colon is then closed ...
The observations of short-term decreases in helium soil-gas concentrations along the San Andreas Fault in central California have been correlated with subsequent earthquake activity. The area of study is elliptical in shape with radii approximately 160??80 km, centered near San Benito, and with the major axis parallel to the Fault. For 83 percent of the M|4 earthquakes in this area a helium decrease preceded seismic activity by 1.5 to 6.5 weeks. There were several earthquakes without a decrease and several decreases without a corresponding earthquake. Owing to complex and unresolved interaction of many geophysical and geochemical parameters, no suitable model is yet developed to explain the observations. ?? 1985 Birkha??user Verlag....

Scientists from NOAA Fisheries are advising the public to stay away from all marine mammals in the wild, especially sick sea lions coming ashore on southern California beaches..

The pups are being cared for by marine mammal rehabilitation centers in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, however, these centers are reaching capacity.. Since January 2013, more than 1,000 sea lions have been taken to rehabilitation centers where they receive nutritional and veterinary care.

Two undercover Alameda County sheriffs investigators survived what could have been a fatal overdose of fentanyl last week following an accidental exposure while on duty, sheriffs officials said Tuesday. The investigators, a sergeant and a detective, are part of the Alameda County Narcotics Task Force. The pair on Friday entered a motel room in Hayward, where officials said the detective immediately began to feel ill. A preliminary review of the incident suggested that the detective was exposed to a microscopic dust cloud of the opioid, according to a statement from the Alameda County Sheriffs Office.
by Don Alcott (1981). The first meeting of the South Bay Pathology Society was in late September or early October of 1951. It was held in the Hematology Laboratory in the basement of the old Santa Clara County Hospital. Attending the first meeting were the pathologists practicing in Santa Clara County at that time. The most senior by far was the eminent Frederick Proescher, who pioneered the field of pathology in the South Bay area, and at one time or another did the pathology for most of the hospitals in the area. He was very proud of the fact that he was the last living student of Ehrlich, and in 1951 he was the director of the Laboratory of the Red Cross Blood bank. Also attending were Homer Hunt and Carl Peterson of the Palo Alto Hospital, Robert Dennis of the San Jose Hospital, Leslie Grams of OConnor Hospital, Herbert Breyfogle of Agnews State Hospital, and Don Alcott of the Santa Clara County Hospital. Each pathologist brought slides of current interest problem cases. These were reviewed ...

A South African spider more poisonous than its cousin the black widow is spreading throughout the most southern part of California, authorities said.. The brown widow first was spotted in San Diego in 2004 and since has multiplied by the thousands, KTLA-TV reported Tuesday.. The brown widow recently was seen as far south as Imperial Beach, near the Mexican border, and as far north as Carlsbad in northern San Diego County. Brown widows are also being seen inland, rather than just in ocean communities where they first were spotted, authorities told KTLA.. The spiders venom is more potent than the black widow and can hospitalize people bitten just once. The brown widow multiples quickly, with each egg hatching as many as 35 baby spiders in 20 days, KTLA reported.. ...
Drug-related overdoses are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in the United States, surpassing motor vehicle accidents at 44,000 fatalities annually. In response, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have partnered with the San Diego County Sheriffs Department to implement and study a program that requires all deputies carry and be trained to use a life-saving drug in the event of a discovered overdose and then refer victims to a treatment center once they are revived.

Advanced tests done at the National Institutes of Health on the brain of football star Junior Seau, who committed suicide in May, showed he had signs of a degenerative brain disease, the Associated Press reported.. The examination of Seaus brain showed abnormalities consistent with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the kind of injury associated with repetitive head injuries, the AP said.. An initial autopsy on Seau performed by the San Diego County medical examiner found no apparent damage to his brain from years of football. But the Seau family, searching for a reason the 43-year-old Seau took his life, asked for a more in-depth examination by the NIH.. PHOTOS: Junior Seau , 1969 - 2012.

On Wednesday, November 03, 2010, a team of scientists from CISR, CDFA, UCCE, USDA-APHIS, the Orange and San Diego County Agricultural Commissioners Offices and West Coast Arborists returned to the Red Palm Weevil (RPW) affected site in Laguna Beach California. Inspection of a unhealthy Canary Islands palm the previous week resulted in the discovery of a live adult RPW in the trunk. Discussions concluded that the infected tree should be removed to prevent the continued possible breeding and spread of the RPW from that palm to other areas in the immediate vicinity.. The two main goals of the CDFA-sponsored project were: (1) removal and destruction of the RPW infested palm, and (2) to dissect the palm and determine how deep the infestation had proceeded through the trunk of the infested palm. It was decided that dissection of the palm could provide useful information on the level of RPW infestation in the trunk, if any live stages were still present, and how severe the internal damage was.. The ...
