this pressed – for information: CDC running twofold probe of EV-D68 cases, neuro illnesses | CIDRAP
While the nationwide outbreak of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) cases may be starting to subside, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is still in the early stages of investigating it and determining whether it’s connected to unexplained neurologic illnesses in children in Colorado and elsewhere, says a top CDC virology expert.
Today the count of confirmed cases rose by 13, to 691, according to the CDC. The illnesses have been confirmed in all but four states: Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Arizona. The cases confirmed yesterday and today mark a slowdown from earlier this week and much of last week.
“We’re getting a sense that on average there’s at least an indication of a decline in the number of cases,” Mark Pallansch, PhD, director of the CDC’s Division of Viral Diseases, told CIDRAP News today.

this pressed-for information: 12 states confirm Enterovirus D68 cases|CNN
(CNN) — Since mid-August, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed more than 100 cases of Enterovirus D68 in 12 states: Alabama, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, New York and Oklahoma.
Yet the real number of severe respiratory illnesses caused by this virus is probably even higher, the CDC says.
Enteroviruses are very common, especially in the early fall. The CDC estimates that 10 million to 15 million infections occur in the United States each year. These viruses usually present like the common cold; symptoms include sneezing, a runny nose and a cough.
Most people recover without any treatment. But Enterovirus D68 appears to be exacerbating breathing problems in children who have asthma.
The virus is hard to track, as many enteroviruses cause similar symptoms and hospitals generally do not test for specific types. But the CDC has asked hospitals across the country to send in samples if workers suspect that Enterovirus D68 has caused a patient’s severe respiratory illness.
Alabama, Indiana and Oklahoma are the latest to join the growing list of states with confirmed cases, health officials say.
Seven of 24 specimens sent to the CDC from Oklahoma hospitals and laboratories have tested positive for Enterovirus D68, the Oklahoma State Department of Health announced Tuesday. The state has seen an increase in pediatric admissions at hospitals in its central region.
So why all the concern now?
What’s unusual at the moment is the high number of hospitalizations.
The virus has sent more than 30 children a day to a Kansas City, Missouri, hospital, where about 15% of the youngsters were placed in intensive care, officials said.
“It’s worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care. I would call it unprecedented,” said Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, a director for infectious diseases at Children’s Mercy Hospital, where about 475 children were recently treated.
“I’ve practiced for 30 years in pediatrics, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this,” she said.
What parents should know about EV-D68
What’s special about this particular type of enterovirus?
An analysis by the CDC showed at least 30 of the Kansas City children tested positive for EV-D68, Missouri health officials said.
It’s a type of enterovirus that’s uncommon, but not new.
It was first identified in the 1960s and there have been fewer than 100 reported cases since that time. But it’s possible, Pallansch said, that the relatively low number of reports might be because EV-D68 is hard to identify.
EV-D68 was seen last year in the United States and this year in various parts of the world. Over the years, clusters have been reported in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona and various countries including the Philippines, Japan and the Netherlands.
Experts say they don’t know why it’s flared up this time around.
“Why one virus or another crops up in one part of the country or another part of the country from one year to the next is inexplicable,” said William Schaffner, head of the Department of Preventive Medicine at Vanderbilt University. “It’s a mystery to me.”
What are the symptoms?

The mayor of London has disclosed that “thousands” of potential terror suspects are being monitored every day in the British capital, providing a broad glimpse of the threat of homegrown Islamic extremism against America‘s staunchest ally.
Boris Johnson made the comments in an interview published in The Daily Telegraph Saturday, saying “In London we’re very very vigilant and very very concerned. Every day … the security services are involved in thousands of operations.”

this pressed for the record: Thousands join ‘weekend of resistance’ as Brown protests expand beyond Ferguson – CSMonitor.com
Protests over the Aug. 9 killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, continue to grow as thousands of people from all over the United States descended on greater St. Louis to take part in a weekend-long series of events and marches demanding “justice” for the killing.
Events in what one student called “the epicenter of the movement against police brutality” have transformed since the violence of the immediate aftermath of the shooting into a more sophisticated, but often edgy and raw, strategy where protesters are fanning out to civic events like the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and sporting events, including this weekend’s baseball playoffs featuring the St. Louis Cardinals.

this press for “unlikely” situations: Ebolavirus VP35 is a multifunctional virulence factor
Ebola virus (EBOV) is a member of the filoviridae family that causes severe hemorrhagic fever during sporadic outbreaks, and no approved treatments are currently available. The multifunctional EBOV VP35 protein facilitates immune evasion by antagonizing antiviral signaling pathways and is important for viral RNA synthesis. In order to elucidate regulatory mechanisms and to develop countermeasures, we recently solved the structures of the Zaire and Reston EBOV VP35 interferon inhibitory domain (IID) in the free form and of the Zaire EBOV VP35 IID bound to dsRNA. Together with biochemical, cell biological and virological studies, our structural work revealed that distinct regions within EBOV VP35 IID contribute to virulence through host immune evasion and viral RNA synthesis. Here we summarize our recent structural and functional studies and discuss the potential of multifunctional Ebola VP35 as a therapeutic target.
Key words: filoviruses, ebola virus, marburg virus, VP35, IFN antagonist, RNA binding protein, virulence factor, immune evasion, drug target

Daniel Boone Festival
Held annually in Barbourville, Kentucky, this festival honors the frontiersman Daniel Boone (1734-1820). In 1775, he became the first person to carve a trail through the Appalachian Mountains from eastern Tennessee to the Ohio River. An important part of the festival is the signing of the Cherokee Cane Treaty, which provides the Cherokee people with cane that they use to make baskets. Other festival events include an old-fashioned barbecue featuring pioneer and American-Indian foods, a long-rifle shoot, and competitions such as hog-calling, wood-chopping, and fiddling.

Second Boer War Erupts in South Africa (1899)
The Boer Wars were fought between the British Empire and Dutch settlers in South Africa, called Boers. The Second Boer War was sparked by the discovery of gold in the Transvaal, a region annexed to Britain but controlled by anti-British statesman Paul Kruger. Tensions rose as the Boer government began limiting the rights of British settlers moving into the region. It has been argued that what method of control now commonly associated with the Nazis was first employed by the British in this war? More… Discuss
Enough is (Not) Enough
Enough is (Not) Enough
You know that sinking feeling you get when you ravenously tear open a bloated snack bag only to find a whole lot of air and a mere handful of chips lying forlornly at the bottom? Well, a group of South Korean college students finally had enough and decided to air their grievances by building a raft out of 160 sealed bags of potato chips. Two of them then paddled the raft 0.62 miles (1.3 kilometers) across the Han River, supported the entire way by the nitrogen gas sealed inside the chip bags. Korean law requires food content to fill at least 65 percent of a snack bag, but many consumers are convinced that manufacturers are falling short of this benchmark. More… Discuss

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
The Guggenheim is a modern art museum located in New York City. It is named for its benefactor, art collector Solomon Guggenheim. Founded in the 1930s, it is known for its remarkable circular building designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The structure resembles a white ribbon spiraling upward and outward in a smooth coil of white concrete. It has no separate floors but instead uses a spiral ramp, realizing Wright’s ideal of a continuous space. Why has Wright’s design been criticized? More… Discuss
