We miss Micho, says Basena

Shaban Lubega.FOOTBALL–New Cranes tacticians Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba conducted their first training session Wednesday at Mandela National Stadium Namboole in high spirit but there was no hiding tinge of their soft spots when the name of their former head coach came up.Basena played for a relaxed man with determination during the drills but was quick to point out after taking the players through their paces that it felt kind of strange without Micho.“We all miss Micho but we have to move forward because we all knew that one day he will be gone and someone else would have to take charge ” said Basena.Basena and Kajoba were Miluton ‘Micho’ Sredojevic’s assistants during the Serbian’s tenure that ended last week.Fufa appointed the two coaches in interim role to oversee Cranes preps for Chan qualifier against Rwanda and World Cup qualifier against Egypt.Uganda plays hosts bitter rivals Rwanda next week before a return leg in Kigali six days later. Basena and Kajoba will then be expected to step up their tactical nous with the more senior team than the crop of home-based players that Chan caters for when they start preps for Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Egypt due August 31 at Namboole and September 5 at Port Alexandria.At Namboole on Wednesday, only 13 of the 25 players summoned turned up with the rest excusing them selves due to different commitments.Among those absent were Vipers players, including Cranes vice captain Nicolas Wadada were in Mbarara for a pre-season game against newly-promoted Uganda Premier League side Mbarara City.Asked about the surprise inclusion of Vipers’ teenager Frank Tumwesigye, Basena said: “Frank is a kid with a lot of potential that should be exploited immediately and if you ask me if he was rushed, I will tell you ‘no’ a million times.”“We have two very talented teenagers in Frank and Allan Okello of KCCA but we could not call Allan because of his education commitments.”KCCA defender Isaac Muleme and Onduparaka duo of Muhammad Shaban and Rashid Toha were also absent along with Kirinya JSS custodian Tom Ikara, who also had club engagements.Basena explained the absenteeism of each and every player.“Of course, we missed every player who could not turn up but we will have to adjust because even tomorrow Savio (Kabugo) has been excused due to clan engagements. We can’t do much at the moment but its also a bonus because they get match fitness in the games they take part in with their clubs,” Basena said.Present at Wednesday’s training session was Nelson Ssenkatuka, who had not appeared on the list that was published by Fufa but Basena clarified that it was a mistake that was resolved.Hassan Wasswa and Khalid Aucho were also present in training giving the local players much needed company.

Jeff Duling, April 27

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are working on our grain bin right now setting the forms for our walls. We are pouring concrete today. We are loading hogs out this week too.I went and checked fields yesterday and the soil temperature was 60 degrees. That same place this morning was down to 48 degrees. I just saw the neighbors go by with a Danish tine headed to Hancock County. There is some ground over there that I could plant but it is still cold yet. I heard rumors that some corn and beans have been planted around Pandora and I also heard there was a planter running around Deshler.In Putnam County we had 1.7 inches early last week then we had .2 the other day. There was a half-inch in Van Wert and in Hancock Counties. Topdressing is about all done, but there are a couple of fields guys are waiting on to see if it will make it or not. It is rare to see a good wheat field in this area. There is a lot of winter damage. Some of it will be torn up. I have seen some oats going in some places.I got some rye burnt down with the gator or the big sprayer depending on how wet the ground was. I use Roundup and 2,4-D. I spray the burndown and come back after the corn is planted with my preemerge. That way I get a couple of extra weeks out of my pre- and if it gets late I am not locked into planting corn.My rye did not get that tall this year. I have some I am not worried about burning down. I may plant into some green rye and then spray it. I don’t like planting into the tall stuff, though. It makes me nervous.I think we can start planting by Friday or Saturday if it doesn’t rain. I’d like to see the ground temperature a little warmer. The equipment is ready to go.last_img read more

How The Internet Of Things Will Revolutionize Search

first_imgTags:#Internet of Things#search brian proffitt Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting CNN, true to its alarmist nature, recently described Shodan as the “The scariest search engine on the Internet” – and indeed, there are some disturbing aspects to using Shodan. Entering the search term “cisco-ios last-modified” – a term suggested by Shodan itself as popular – reveals a number of Cisco-based devices on the Internet that had not been updated in a very long time. Such devices could be very vulnerable to attack through well-known exploits.Shodan exposes what security experts have known for a long time: a lot of devices connected to the Internet have been largely forgotten even as they continue chugging along performing tasks that range from mundane to mission-critical.But Shodan, while interesting, will probably not represent the future of searching Internet of Things. Instead, as the world around us “wakes up” and becomes increasingly connected to the Internet, the world will talk to us without our having to look for it.When The World Touches YouHere is one vision of how this potential future might work:Imagine, says  J Schwan, CEO of Solstice Mobile, walking into an office building in which you are a maintenance technician about to start your day. Over the course of the previous day and evening, various tickets were filed by the building’s tenants (or maybe even by the devices themselves): a squeaky door here, a hiccuping elevator there. An app on your phone lists the problems to be fixed – ordered by priority and optimized for maximum efficiency. This is a system that Solstice is working on now for clients.Other examples abound. A department store could be populated with products connected to the Internet via RFID tags. Customers could walk in, request a certain item, and see a map to that item’s exact location displayed on their phones. Or even see it as an augmented-reality display on their Google Glass or other wearable computer.The same store’s managers could use augmented-reality displays to view sales figures of the items the see on the shelves, perhaps in the form of a heat map that instantly indicates which items sell better in what position in the store. Just by speaking a couple words, they can have the stock room shift the position, or even update electronic price tags on the shelves to attract more buyers. Those price updates, by the way, then show up as alerts on shoppers’ devices.Not Far AwayThis world is not far off. Smartphones and other mobile devices can already tap into public search engines to discover more about the world around them. You can use augmented reality to see results displayed graphically on device screens.As more and more objects join the Internet, they’ll create information that will be added to the potential data you can receive, raising the level of information available by orders of magnitude. This will be both a boon (more data to help make decisions) and a curse (so much data you could drown).Searches, as active tasks, will become less needed – and less practical – as not just the Web, but the whole world around us will automatically send us information based on our preferences. And the questions we will have to ask will be far simpler and less arduous to construct.Instead of entering “2013 best televisions” in your browser to get back lots of data in the form of articles and content, you’ll be able to stand in the store and ask “which one of these TVs is the best for me for me right now?” and see the answers (based on your budget, space and other preferences) right in front of you.Knowing the tenacity of advertisers, you probably won’t even have to ask.Image courtesy of Shutterstock. How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Related Posts As mobile devices dictate the terms of search and how results are being conveyed to end users, there’s another phenomenon that will greatly influence the future of search – very soon, we’re going to be swimming in more data than we will know what to do with.The rise of the Internet of Things means billions of physical objects will soon generate massive amounts of data 24 hours a day. Not only will this make traditional search methods nearly impossible to use, it will also create an environment where instead of looking for things in the world, those things will be seeking us out to give us all sorts of information that will help us fix, use or buy them.(See also Forget Searching For Content – Content Is About To Start Searching For You.)Search Collides With Internet Of ThingsWhen talking about the Internet of Things, it is important to get past the hype and explain exactly what it is: vast numbers of automated physical devices and objects connected to the Internet. These devices are usually routers, switches, phones… but increasingly devices like security cameras and remote climate sensors are being added – and over time we can expect everything from cars to refrigerators to join the party.(See also Futurist’s Cheat Sheet: Internet Of Things.)At this moment in history, the relationship between search and devices on the Internet resembles the model of searching for Web content: you search for data from devices, and you get it.The Shodan search engine follows this model very well. Using Shodan is pretty much like using Google or any other search engine: enter your search string and up pops quite a few results matching devices that Shodan has found on the Web. Routers, cameras, municipal control systems… they’re all there to see. Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo…last_img read more

FDA approves first drug for treatment of postpartum depression in adult women

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 20 2019The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Zulresso (brexanolone) injection for intravenous (IV) use for the treatment of postpartum depression (PPD) in adult women. This is the first drug approved by the FDA specifically for PPD.”Postpartum depression is a serious condition that, when severe, can be life-threatening. Women may experience thoughts about harming themselves or harming their child. Postpartum depression can also interfere with the maternal-infant bond. This approval marks the first time a drug has been specifically approved to treat postpartum depression, providing an important new treatment option,” said Tiffany Farchione, M.D., acting director of the Division of Psychiatry Products in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “Because of concerns about serious risks, including excessive sedation or sudden loss of consciousness during administration, Zulresso has been approved with a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) and is only available to patients through a restricted distribution program at certified health care facilities where the health care provider can carefully monitor the patient.”PPD is a major depressive episode that occurs following childbirth, although symptoms can start during pregnancy. As with other forms of depression, it is characterized by sadness and/or loss of interest in activities that one used to enjoy and a decreased ability to feel pleasure (anhedonia) and may present with symptoms such as cognitive impairment, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, or suicidal ideation.Zulresso will be available only through a restricted program called the Zulresso REMS Program that requires the drug be administered by a health care provider in a certified health care facility. The REMS requires that patients be enrolled in the program prior to administration of the drug. Zulresso is administered as a continuous IV infusion over a total of 60 hours (2.5 days). Because of the risk of serious harm due to the sudden loss of consciousness, patients must be monitored for excessive sedation and sudden loss of consciousness and have continuous pulse oximetry monitoring (monitors oxygen levels in the blood). While receiving the infusion, patients must be accompanied during interactions with their child(ren). The need for these steps is addressed in a Boxed Warning in the drug’s prescribing information. Patients will be counseled on the risks of Zulresso treatment and instructed that they must be monitored for these effects at a health care facility for the entire 60 hours of infusion. Patients should not drive, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities until feelings of sleepiness from the treatment have completely gone away.Related StoriesSome children are at greater risk of ongoing depression long after being bulliedCPAP treatment for sleep apnea can improve depression symptomsStudy finds depression and anxiety symptoms among many asylum seekersThe efficacy of Zulresso was shown in two clinical studies in participants who received a 60-hour continuous intravenous infusion of Zulresso or placebo and were then followed for four weeks. One study included patients with severe PPD and the other included patients with moderate PPD. The primary measure in the study was the mean change from baseline in depressive symptoms as measured by a depression rating scale. In both placebo controlled studies, Zulresso demonstrated superiority to placebo in improvement of depressive symptoms at the end of the first infusion. The improvement in depression was also observed at the end of the 30-day follow-up period.The most common adverse reactions reported by patients treated with Zulresso in clinical trials include sleepiness, dry mouth, loss of consciousness and flushing. Health care providers should consider changing the therapeutic regimen, including discontinuing Zulresso in patients whose PPD becomes worse or who experience emergent suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
