Proper handwashing to avoid back-to-school illnesses

dmihbinh

first_imgStatewide—Summer has come to an end and families across the country are trading in beach balls and bicycles for backpacks and notebooks. But back-to-school time is also followed by cold and flu season. Having the whole family follow some simple healthy behaviors can help them avoid all kinds of illnesses this time of year, including the topic: foodborne illness. Proper handwashing is the best thing you can do to stop the spread of germs and avoid getting your little ones sick.“USDA research in collaboration with RTI International and NC State University has found that consumers are failing to properly wash their hands 97 percent of the time,” said Dr. Mindy Brashears, Deputy Under Secretary Food Safety. “Washing hands is one of the most effective ways to prevent illness, including foodborne illness.”Be sure that everyone follows these steps:Wet hands with clean, warm running water, turn off the tap, and apply soap.Lather hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of hands, between your fingers, and under nails.Scrub hands for at least 20 seconds.Rinse hands well under clean, warm running water.Dry hands using a clean towel or paper towel Parents and caregivers who are tasked with preparing lunch for themselves and their children should be a good role model by showing children how to properly wash their hands. Wash your hands and cooking surfaces before and after handling food. It is not only important to have clean hands, but also make sure lunch boxes and coolers are clean before packing.Lunch Packing TipsIf the lunch contains perishable food items like luncheon meats, eggs, cheese or yogurt, make sure to pack it with at least two cold sources, such as freezer packs. Harmful bacteria multiply rapidly so perishable food transported without a cold source won’t stay safe long.Frozen juice boxes or water can also be used as freezer packs. Freeze these items overnight and use with at least one other freezer pack. By lunchtime, the liquids should be thawed and ready to drink.If packing a hot lunch, like soup, chili or stew, use an insulated container to keep it hot. Fill the container with boiling water, let stand for a few minutes, empty, and then put in the piping hot food. Tell children to keep the insulated container closed until lunchtime to keep the food at 140°F or above.If packing a child’s lunch the night before, parents should leave it in the refrigerator overnight. The meal will stay cold longer because everything will be refrigerator temperature when it is placed in the lunchbox.last_img read more

Canaries keeping boss options open

dmihbinh

first_imgChief executive David McNally has suggested Norwich could move swiftly to replace Chris Hughton if their Premier League status is threatened. In a congested bottom half of the table, the Canaries are two places and one point above Sunderland, who occupy the final place in the relegation zone but have a game in hand. The Canaries are the only side in the bottom six not to have changed manager this season. Press Associationcenter_img “It would be almost delinquent of the football club to not be aware of potential candidates if for any reason your manager left,” McNally told the Eastern Daily Press. “If results are not good enough you have to be aware of who is out there to help. You look at the market and who might be right for Norwich City. “If we needed to make a change – and the average tenure of a Premier League manager is about a year and a half, which puts Chris in the top six or top eight longest serving right now – then if a change was necessary it wouldn’t be a case of, who are the contenders? It would be a case of reviewing what is required, where are we going and who is best placed to take the club forward.” The bottom 11 teams are separated by eight points with 12 games to go and the Canaries are three points behind 10th-placed Swansea and West Ham, in 11th, whose recent revival has taken them clear of the drop zone. “If we believe Chris is the right man to take the club forward then we stick with that,” McNally added. “It is fine margins in our sport and what you have to be sure of is a guaranteed improvement.” last_img read more

Press Associationcenter_img Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Emre Can have already been added to the squad while negotiations are continuing in an attempt to sign Belgium’s Lille striker Divock Origi. Rodgers is looking to strengthen further following the £75million departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, which is expected to be completed later this week. Reds forward Iago Aspas has returned to Spain on a year-long loan with Sevilla after a disappointing maiden season having moved from Celta Vigo last summer. The Spanish outfit announced the clubs had agreed a loan deal, with the option for them to sign Aspas on a permanent deal. Aspas’ departure may help in Liverpool’s pursuit of the Spanish left-back Alberto Moreno. The two clubs appeared to have reached an impasse over the defender’s fee, with the Merseysiders unwilling to meet a £20million valuation, but talks have continued. last_img read more

Q&A with Professor Tom Hollihan

dmihbinh

first_imgDT: Were the candidates’ performances in line with expectations for tonight?I think Romney outperformed what a lot of people expected. I think Obama was a little bit flat and underperformed. But I think his supporters may have been more optimistic because he is such an eloquent stump speaker. That doesn’t necessarily translate to great debating skills. Those are different kinds of speaking styles. But nonetheless I think people thought that would play into his debate performance. President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney faced off during the first presidential debate at the University of Denver on Wednesday night.Communication Professor Tom Hollihan, an expert in political debates, analyzed the candidates’ performances in the domestic policy debate. DT: What do you think the two candidates should work on going into the next two debates?TH: I think they’re going to be trying to get Obama to show a little more energy, to be a little sharper and a little less long-winded. I think they’re going to try to get him to be a little more concrete in going after some specific things or flaws in Romney’s positions. I think [with] Romney, they’re going to try to say, “You gave as well as you got in this debate, but you didn’t make the final say. And you have to be more prepared about how to be concrete.”The foreign policy debate, I think, will be an advantage to Obama. This debate was somewhat of an advantage for the challenger because Obama’s most difficult set of facts is the nature of the economy right now. But he’s been so effective with the foreign policy debate that I’d look for that to be an advantage for the president. DT: To what extent do you believe the debate will affect the public?TH: What typically happens in these debates is that a challenger who can hold his own against an incumbent picks up at least some short-term gain in the polls. Whether or not that gain is maintained in days to come is really hard to determine. I think there is going to be some closing of the polls. I think Mr. Romney is going to see some advantage. But I think it will not be at all clear that he will hang on to that in days to come. DT: Did the debate raise any new issues in the campaign?TH: No, I don’t think there was much of anything new. It seemed to me that Obama tried to play the debate strategy very conservatively. He did not go on the attack. He really avoided issues like the Bain Capital or the exporting of jobs, he didn’t mention the 47 percent statement. He seemed to play a very conservative strategy. And Romney was much more in control of the emotional dimension of the debate, taking the attack directly to the president, being sharply critical of the president’s positions. I think that was the much more defining characteristic. I don’t think there was much substantively new in this contest.center_img Daily Trojan: Did voters learn anything new about the two candidates from the debate?Tom Hollihan: I think what they saw was two different visions for how to take the country forward -— one vision that is much more focused on using government as a resource to help people and another vision that is much more reliant on free enterprise and individuals and states as opposed to the federal government.What I don’t think they really learned was precisely what Mr. Romney will do. I think he stylistically did a beautiful job debating and I think he was very articulate at communicating his ideas. He seemed enthusiastic and prepared and ready to be there.I think the one problem was he was unable to be real concrete and specific in terms of how he would achieve these things. I mean, at one point, he was forced to say my view of government is not that you go in with a proposal but that you listen and negotiate and talk to people and that’s what [he] did in Massachusetts. And I think in the days to come, that’s going to be the focus of a lot of the Democrats’ energy and attack –— to say, “He hasn’t really articulated what he’s going to do. He’s walking away from most of the specific commitments during the course of his campaign so far and he isn’t promising exactly what he’s going to do or how he’s going to do the proposals he wants to get to.” DT: Who do you think ultimately won the debate?TH: I don’t ever answer that question in terms quite that stark.  … It’s a matter of which candidate better achieved the objective they have to achieve. And I would give the advantage to Romney on that. I think the fact is the Republicans will be enthusiastic about how well he performed in this debate, whereas Democrats will be more likely disappointed that the president didn’t deliver a knock-out blow. DT: Do you think the audience picks up on that?TH: [With] the immediate audience, it’s always a little bit unclear. What we know about debates is that the partisan voters are likely to go in and find enough reasons to support their own candidate’s position to confirm what they already had believed to be true. Undecideds often don’t even watch the debate so they are more influenced by the spin and the press coverage and conversation with their pals following the debate.last_img read more
