Worm Therapy Becoming Trendy

Posted on by

first_imgTreatment with helminths (roundworms), once considered gross, is actually proving effective.If you can get over the “ick factor” of putting worms in your body, you might take a new look at what many patients are finding: helminths (roundworms) can cure some diseases other treatments can’t. Here’s the bottom line of an article from Medical Xpress:“The risk-benefit ratio is so skewed to the benefit side,” O’Hara said. “Helminths are much safer than any medication I’ve ever put any child on, or any adult. I really do think that this is something more and more physicians need to consider.”Helminth therapy (the preferred term, since “worms” grosses people out) has proven effective for severe food allergies and inflammatory bowel disease. It’s given some patients a new life.Of scientific interest is whether helminths should be classed as parasites. That link is “controversial” the article says, because while some truly do cause harm, there are other helminth species that cause no harm and bring only benefits. What’s the difference in living with other internal organisms, like gut bacteria, that help us digest our food?For creationists, this relatively recent change of opinion may be instructive about original ecology. Instead of classing organisms into simplistic good-and-bad categories, maybe we should take a look at some things as potentially good under the right circumstances. Certainly the Genesis 3 curse caused pain and suffering in many cases, but we shouldn’t assume that some organisms we have been conditioned to consider bad are in fact bad. Another case is maggots, now being used for cleaning wounds. That’s something Hugh Glass knew about and benefited from (to be shown in the upcoming movie, The Revenant, opening Christmas 2015). Don’t rush to get bit by a rattlesnake or stung by a scorpion, but keep an open mind about yucky things in nature. Grasshoppers are good sources of protein, for instance. Each case needs its own evidence. (Visited 37 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Orlando Pirates capture PSL title

Posted on by

first_imgGoal differencePirates’ 60 points trumped Ajax’s 60 by four goals on goal difference. Interestingly, Chiefs, in third, had a better goal difference than either team, and Sundowns, in fourth, had the best goal difference in the league, further underlining how tight the title race had been. PromotedJomo Cosmos, after only a year in the First Division, are headed back to the PSL after beating Bay United 5-4 in a penalty shootout at the Makhulong Stadium on Sunday. Black Aces, who will be playing in the First Division next season, ended their campaign with a 2-0 home loss to Moroka Swallows. Vasco Da Gama, meanwhile, thumped fellow Cape Town club Santos 3-0. Despite the win, they still finished second from bottom on the log and will go into the promotion/relegation playoffs. Ajax will be gutted to have missed out on the title after managing only one point from their last two matches in which there were six points on offer. A 4-0 defeat at the hands of Chiefs in their penultimate match was regarded by many as a temporary setback as they faced Maritzburg United, who had barely escaped relegation, in their final game, with home ground advantage. Cosmos topped the Inland Stream of the First Division by a healthy 10 points over Pretoria University, while Bay United edged Thanda Royal Zulu by a single point in the Coastal Stream. In other results, BidVest Wits and Platinum Stars drew 1-1, while three-time champions SuperSport United finished their season on a high with a 1-0 win at Free State Stars. Pirates’ coach Ruud Krol told the club’s website that the victory was one of the finest moments of his coaching career. He said: “From my experience the teams who are on top of the log heading into the last match never win their last matches and that happened today. It was good for us. Of course what it means is that I’m happy and I’m happy for my players. RockyHowever, less than 20 minutes into the second half their chances of finishing top of the table looked decidedly rocky after Maritzburg United took a 2-1 lead. The Urban Warriors appeared on course for the title, and a fairytale ending for coach Foppe de Haan in his last match before retiring, when they took lead in the 43rd minute through Khama Billiat. When the dust had settled on a fascinating day’s action, the Buccaneers were the champions on goal difference over Ajax, with Chiefs only a point behind them and Mamelodi Sundowns two points off the pace. PSL CHAMPIONS The Sea Robbers had taken the lead in the 38th minute through Bongani Ndulula, but it lasted only three minutes. Collins Mbesuma, a nemesis for Pirates in the past while with their great rivals Chiefs, headed past Senzo Meyiwa to level matters. Pirates’ victory and title suddenly leaves the club with the possibility of a season for the ages. They have won the PSL title and earlier in the season claimed the MTN 8 crown. Next up, they face First Division side Black Leopards in the final of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday. Win and they will secure a sparkling treble.center_img “I saw my team this season bouncing back after some big defeats and we were coming back in the race for the championship and only big teams can do that and that is the consistency that you need to win something.” One of the most famous sayings in sport is attributed to New York Yankees’ legend Yogi Berra, who said: “It ain’t over till its over.” And so it proved on a thrilling final day of the PSL season as Orlando Pirates came from behind to snatch the title from Ajax Cape Town on Saturday. 23 May 2011 Heading into the final round of matches, three teams were in with a shot at claiming the honours. Ajax were in the pound seats, leading Pirates, in second, by two points, while Kaizer Chiefs were three point adrift and needed the two front-runners to trip up to lift the silverware. ‘We deserved it’“I told my players that we deserved it because we worked hard. They worked hard for 11 months. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Fourth-placed Sundowns completed their season with a 3-1 win over fifth-placed Bloemfontein Celtic at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. The Urban Warriors pulled one back in the 87th minute through Sameehg Doutie. It wasn’t enough, however, as Pirates claimed a 2-1 win over Golden Arrows at the Orlando Stadium.

Zille to receive Geiger Award

Posted on by

first_imgHelen Zille takes time out at the 2009World Economic Forum on Africa, heldin Cape Town.(Image: Wikimedia Commons)MEDIA CONTACTS • Trace VenterSpokesperson for the premierWestern Cape provincial legislature+27 21 483 6062 or +27 84 977 9888• Democratic AllianceParliamentary, Media and Research offices+27 21 403 2910RELATED ARTICLES• Top honour for Cape Town mayor• Suzman: a fearless voice stilled• Alice Walker to explore Biko ties• Biko’s legacy lives onShamin ChibbaSouth Africa is filled with personalities who have won prestigious awards for various achievements. Just think of Oscar winner Charlize Theron or Nobel laureates Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Sydney Brenner and Nadine Gordimer. Now the country can again count Helen Zille among that number.The award recognises the Democratic Alliance (DA) leader’s contribution to South Africa’s freedom struggle, and her achievements as Mayor of Cape Town and Premier of the Western Cape province.Zille will receive the accolade at a ceremony on 26 September in Berlin, Germany. It includes an endowment of €10,000 (R97 000), which will go towards educating rabbinical students from South Africa at the Abraham Geiger College in Germany.In 2008 Zille was unanimously named World Mayor, taking the award from 11 finalists selected from over 800 entrants.Respected by publicSince taking the helm at the DA, the 60-year-old has garnered much respect from the public, even from opposition African National Congress (ANC) supporters.Betty Fefe, a staunch ANC follower from the township of Duncan Village in East London, believes that Zille’s presence in the political arena indicates that women can make a difference.She added that the DA leader understands all different types of people and their needs as well. “Before the local election, she was visiting our townships. Now we see her as a good person. In the townships they are saying that even though she is white, she knows how to talk to people,” said Fefe.Those within the DA hold their leader in high esteem. DA councillor Dinesh Vallabh’s first encounter with Zille left him admiring her energy, her logical thinking, and the way she connects with people from every walk of life.He believes that Zille leads with integrity and a dynamism that is natural to her.Equally impressive, he said, was her ability to remember names. “She has the memory of an elephant,” he quipped.Johannesburg-based journalist Priya Pitamber said that the Western Cape premier comes across as a strong woman who is able to speak her mind.In an online question and answer session on World Mayor.com, Zille said the lessons learnt during her years as a political correspondent had helped her become an astute politician. She said she was able to apply those skills to the many challenges she faced in her new career.Pitamber, however, has mixed feelings about journalists who become politicians. “I hope she still has a journalist’s ideal of changing the world for the better, and hopefully she is trying to do that,” she said.If Zille has earned respect as a politician, then she has certainly gained fame for her recent moves on stage. In the months leading up to the 2011 local election, South Africans were bombarded by pictures and videos of Zille performing a dance routine dubbed the “ballot boogie” by a popular local magazine.The dance was used to connect with the public during the DA’s campaign. When she was criticised for it, Zille simply said: “Dancing is part of South Africa’s political culture. I love dancing, even though I am no ‘twinkle toes’. But who cares? The point is to move and enjoy yourself and not to feel inhibited.”Courage and determinationAccording to the South African Union for Progressive Judaism, a person who contributes to pluralism through openness, courage, tolerance and freedom of thought is considered worthy of the Geiger Award. This says much about Zille herself.Johannesburg-born Zille is of German descent. Her parents fled the country in the 1930s when they were persecuted because of their Jewish roots. Her maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother were Jewish.Before her foray into politics, Zille worked as a journalist during the apartheid era at the Rand Daily Mail, an influential liberal newspaper. She was instrumental in revealing the brutal killing of Steve Biko while he was imprisoned in Pretoria in 1977.After involving herself in NGO work, she joined the DA, known then as the Democratic Party, in the mid-1990s.Zille served as a Member of the Executive Council for education and then became leader of the opposition in the Western Cape’s provincial legislature, before being elected as a Member of Parliament in 2004, a position she held for two years. In the 2006 municipal election, Zille and the DA snatched a majority vote in the Mother City, which made her mayor.During her tenure, Zille rid the council of corruption and bad debt by meticulously scouring through contracts approved by the previous administration. These efforts led to her nomination as World Mayor in 2008.When the DA won the government of the Western Cape in the 2009 general election, she said: “If we can prove our ability to govern in the Western Cape as we did in Cape Town, then it would be a milestone for our democracy.”Since then, the Western Cape has become one of the more progressive provinces in the country.About the Abraham Geiger AwardThe man after whom the award is named was a philosopher and renowned thinker of liberal Judaism during the 19th century.The award was created in 2000 by the Abraham Geiger College at the University of Potsdam to honour those who have achieved much in their fields of expertise while following three freedoms Geiger held in high regard. These were; the freedom of conscience and belief, academic freedom, and freedom of expression for all human beings.Previous winners include Catholic priest Hans Küng, Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan, Cardinal Karl Lehmann, German-French sociologist Alfred Grosser, Emil Fackenheim, and the scholar Susannah Heschel.Ms Trace VenterMail:Private Bag X9043, CAPE TOWN, 8000Street:Provincial Legislature Building, 1st Floor, 7 Wale Street, CAPE TOWNTel:(021) 483 6062Fax:(021) 483 3921Cell:084 977 9888E-mail:tventer@pgwc.gov.zalast_img read more

SAD (Taksali) and AAP tie-up in Punjab unlikely

Posted on by

first_imgThe possibility of a pre-poll alliance between the Shiromani Akali Dal (Taksali) and the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls looks unlikely, with a senior Taksali leader saying the party would contest the polls on its own.No meetingThe proposed meeting on the alliance was scheduled to be held between the leaders of the two parties here on Sunday but did not take place. SAD (Taksali) senior leader Sewa Singh Sekhwan blamed the AAP for this, claiming that the party was showing more inclination towards entering into a tie-up with the Congress. He told reporters here that his party would contest the Lok Sabha elections on its own strength. Mr. Sekhwan said the party will soon decide as to on how many seats they would contest. AAP leaders had earlier maintained that SAD (Taksali) did not want to give up the Anandpur Sahib seat from where AAP had already fielded its candidate. Taksali Akalis (old guard), including Mr. Sekhwan, who had last year raised their voice against SAD’s alleged deviation from its core principles, had floated a separate outfit in December.last_img read more

Pak to execute paraplegic man

Posted on by

first_imgLahore, Sept 20 (PTI) Pakistan is set to execute a 43-year-old paraplegic man convicted of murder, drawing condemnation from a prominent rights group. Abdul Basit, who was convicted of murder in 2009, will be hanged on Tuesday. Basit became paralysed from the waist down after contracting tubercular meningitis in prison. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has called upon the President to stay the hanging and grant him reprieve. “Human rights activists throughout Pakistan and beyond have been shocked to learn of the orders for the execution of convict Abdul Basit (a paraplegic man)on September 22, despite the fact that the unfortunate man is paralysed from his waist below,” the commission said in a statement. “We are also shocked that the courts summarily dismissed the pleas for taking into consideration the provisions of international human rights instruments for special treatment of physically challenged people.” It further says Basits mercy petition is still pending in the presidency. “In these circumstances the execution of Abdul Basit will offend against all norms of civilised justice, raise awkward questions about the Pakistan justice systems insensitivity to humanitarian imperatives, and indict the Pakistan state and society as brutal entities,” it said. Last month, Pakistan executed Shafqat Hussain convicted of killing a seven-year-old boy when he himself was aged 14, drawing international criticism. Since Pakistan lifted a moratorium on executions in December 2014 in the wake of attack on an Army Public School in Peshawar that left 150 people killed mostly children, the Amnesty International has recorded over 200 executions.
