    101-year-old woman runs for town council

    A 101-year-old woman in Saleducio, Italy, is campaigning to become the oldest town counselor in the country in the upcoming June 6-7 elections.

    Maria Donati, who will be 102 in September, is running for the town council on the Civic Non-Party Ticket For the Common Good in the same village that her granddaughter, Roberta, is running for mayor, ANSA reported Thursday.

    Donati's daughter and son-in-law are also running for positions on the Saleducio council.

    ''I want to improve the roads around here and listen to everyone's problems as I have always done,'' said Donati, who has eight grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. ''One thing is sure: I have a century's worth of experience to draw on."

    Man celebrates 80th birthday by skydiving

    A Nevada man said he celebrated his upcoming 80th birthday by skydiving with 11 friends at Boulder City Municipal Airport.

    Al Masters, 79, whose 80th birthday is coming up in July, said he and his entourage, most of whom he knew from the Legacy Golf Club, plummeted 15,000 feet during their May 3 tandem jumps at the airport's Las Vegas Skydive, the Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday.

    The soon-to-be octogenarian said he was by far the oldest person on the skydiving trip -- the second oldest person in his group of friends is 40.

    "These guys can't keep up with me," he said. "I even beat them at golf."

    Masters said the first 9,000 feet of the fall, before the parachute opened, was his favorite part of the experience.

    "You're going so fast, it's like you're stretching yourself on a ball," he said. "It feels like the air is holding onto you."

    Masters said he hopes to go skydiving again, but next time he plans to take the four-hour course that will let him jump solo.

    Soldier in pink boxers fought Taliban

    A U.S. soldier serving in Afghanistan has become a media sensation after he was photographed fighting Taliban forces while stripped down to his skivvies.

    Army Spc. Zachary Boyd, 19, who hails from Fort Worth, Texas, said he was in his sleeping quarters at Firebase Restrepo in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan's Kunar province when the Taliban attacked, forcing him to take up a defensive position while clad only in his helmet, protective vest, a T-shirt and his pink "I Love NY" boxer shorts, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Thursday.

    A wire service photographer snapped a picture of Boyd rushing into action in his undershorts and the snapshot wound up on the front pages of the Star-Telegram and The New York Times.

    The soldier's mother, Sheree Boyd, said her son called Monday night to tell her his picture might be in the Times.

    "He said, 'I hear the Times is what they put on the president's desk,'" she said. "Then he told us, 'I may not have a job anymore after the president has seen me out of uniform.'"

    Mrs. Boyd said she was not surprised to see her "Zacho" in pink underpants.

    "It was typical," she said. "He has always been an interesting little character."

    Man accused of biting another man's ear

    Police in Wisconsin said a man was arrested for allegedly biting off part of another man's ear during an argument that turned into a physical confrontation.

    Kenosha police said Antoine Parks was arrested early Monday morning at the home of the 30-year-old victim, who was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, Wis., for surgery to repair his ear, the Kenosha News reported Thursday.

    The victim told police that Parks is a relative of his girlfriend and had been staying at their home. He said Parks became angry after he was asked to leave and attacked him with a hammer while the two men were packing Parks' belongings.

    Police said the victim attempted to defend himself with a screwdriver and Parks bit part of the man's ear off during the ensuing struggle.

    Parks initially surrendered to police but was stunned with a Taser while trying to flee moments later. He charged with suspicion of mayhem and resisting arrest. Police in Appleton, Wis., also issued a warrant for Parks on a charge of causing property damage.

    Vodafone abolishes roaming charges ahead of mobile phone price war

    Vodafone made the first move in an expected price war between mobile phone companies by abolishing roaming charges for British customers travelling in Europe.

    Under the terms of the three-month deal beginning on June 1, Vodafone’s customers will be able to call and text phones in Britain from 35 European countries for the price they would be charged in Britain.

    It is thought that the price cuts could be the first of many from mobile operators as caps on roaming fees are due to come into force on July 1.

    The European Commission has targeted the often hefty charges for calling from abroad, dubbed the “roaming rip-off” by Viviane Reding, the EU Telecoms Commissioner, with a two-year plan to cut charges by an average of 60 per cent. This was approved by MEPs in April. Some mobile phone customers have unwittingly run up bills of hundreds of pounds when using their phones on holiday.

    The European Commission plans include limits on the cost of mobile phone texting and downloads when abroad, cutting the price of a roaming text message for a British customer by more than half from an average of 25p to a maximum of 10p. The current cap of 41p per minute for a call made to Britain from another EU country will drop to 31p by July 2011.

    Vodafone said that a mobile phone user on one of its plans with 600 inclusive minutes and unlimited texts would be able to use these on holiday without paying any extra charges under the new arrangement.

    It also said that pay-as-you-go customers on its Simply tariff would be able to call overseas numbers from Britain from 5p per minute, although tariffs will be as much as 30p per minute for some countries. It added, however, that after its three-month offer expired customers would remain on the Passport scheme and pay 75p to be connected when calling from abroad, before being charged at their normal call rate.

    Vodafone’s rival operator O2 said yesterday that it would cut the cost of sending a text message from a British phone in Europe from 25p to 11p in July. It will not try to match Vodafone’s summer offer, it said, but will offer customers free incoming calls while in Europe and calls within Europe at 25p a minute through its My Europe Extra package, which costs £10 a month.

    Orange said that it would also cut the price of texts in July, but did not say by how much.

    Mobile phone companies will have to work hard to replace the lost revenue from higher roaming charges at a difficult time for the industry, with cost-conscious consumers cutting the amount they spend on their phones.

    Earlier this week O2 said that its average revenue per user fell by nearly 4 per cent because people were cutting back on the number of text messages they sent. Vodafone is trying to cut about £1 billion from its £22 billion operating costs to fight the recession. Roaming charges accounted for €6.5 billion (£5.8 billion) in revenue for mobile operators last year, about 2 per cent of the €300 billion European telecommunications market, according to the Commission.

    Ian Shepherd, the consumer director for Vodafone UK, said of its deal: “You can sit on the beach with your phone switched on knowing you can take and make a call just as you would if you were in your back garden.”

    Climate Change Could Be the World's Biggest Health Threat

    The biggest global health threat of this century is climate change, according to a new report prepared jointly by University College London and The Lancet. Climate change will change for the worse patterns of disease, food security, water and sanitation, and extreme weather, according to Anthony Costello, FRCPCH, of University College London and colleagues.

    "This is a bad diagnosis for our children and grandchildren," Dr. Costello told reporters, not only in the developing world but also in industrialized countries.

    The journal's editor in chief, Richard Horton, FRCP, said climate change is "an urgent threat, it is a dangerous threat, it is neglected and requires an unprecedented response."

    The researchers called for health professionals to get involved in a new "public health movement that frames the threat of climate change for humankind as a health issue." The 94-page report is to be published in the May 16 issue of The Lancet.

    Dr. Costello said the researchers concluded that mean global temperatures will rise by between 2oC and 6oC over the next 100 years.

    Among other things, they said, the increase will mean:

    More heat waves like the one in Europe in 2003 that killed an estimated 70,000 people.
    Greater rates of transmission and wider geographic spread of diseases such as malaria and dengue fever that are currently endemic in tropical regions. Hunger from falling crop yields in many regions of the world, caused by higher temperatures and the effects of extreme weather, such as flooding and drought.

    An increase in gastroenteritis and water-borne diseases because of disrupted water supply, as well as water shortages.

    Co-author Hugh Montgomery, M.D., also of University College London, said the research suggested that one-third to two-thirds of all known species could go extinct over the next 40 years.

    That would be the "fastest mass extinction the world has ever seen," Dr. Montgomery said, and would have harmful effects on humanity, a species at the top of the global food chain. Climate Change's Impact on Health

    "You don't have to be a genius to recognize that that will impact on your lives," he said.

    One possible effect, he said, would be crop failures because of a lack of pollinating insects.

    On the other hand, some species would do better, the researchers said, including the insects that carry such diseases as malaria. Also, the vectors that carry animal infections, such as blue-tongue virus, would be able to spread.

    Dr. Montgomery said the climate change debate has largely focused on infrastructure and economics, along with questions of weather and "whether the polar bears are going to survive." One purpose of the report, he said, is to "personalize" the issue.

    Nearly a billion people already suffer food insecurity, the researchers noted, and the UN World Food Programme says the number of food emergencies every year has increased from an average of 15 during the 1980s to more than 30 in this decade.

    A rise in sea level could also cause "catastrophic" effects, the researchers said, noting that of the 20 largest cities in the world, 13 are on a coast. A sea level rise of only a few meters could inundate many of those places, they said. Dr. Costello noted that aside from slowing or averting climate change, reducing carbon emissions would have some health benefits, including cleaner air and a lower burden of illnesses related to a sedentary lifestyles, such as obesity, diabetes, and stress.

    The world might be reaching a "tipping point" in the climate change debate, Dr. Costello said, adding that the health lobby has come late to this debate but must be "at the forefront."

    He said that before starting on this project, he – as a pediatrician – had not realized how serious the issue is as a matter of global health.

    Dr. Costello said he and other health professionals "must emphasize the (health) threat to our children and grandchildren from greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation."

    He added that the focus must be on health care systems, which are not equal throughout the world. Because of that inequality, the "loss of healthy life years" to climate change will probably be 500 times higher in Africa than in Europe.

    Finally, he said, "we must develop win-win situations whereby we mitigate and adapt to climate change and at the same time significantly improve human health and well being."

    Immunotherapy effective against neuroblastoma in children

    A phase III study has shown that adding an antibody-based therapy that harnesses the body's immune system resulted in a 20 percent increase in the number of children living disease-free for at least two years with neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma, a hard-to-treat cancer arising from nervous system cells, is responsible for 15 percent of cancer-related deaths in children. The researchers reported their findings - the first to show that immunotherapy could be effective against childhood cancer - online May 14, 2009 on the American Society of Clinical Oncology website in advance of presentation June 2."This establishes a new standard of care for a traditionally very difficult cancer in children," said lead author Alice Yu, MD, PhD, professor of pediatric hematology/oncology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Moores UCSD Cancer Center. "High-risk neuroblastoma has always been a frustrating cancer to treat because, despite aggressive therapy, it has a high relapse rate."

    The therapy targets a specific glycan (a complex sugar chain found on the surface of cells) on neuroblastoma cells called GD2, which inhibit the immune system from killing cancer cells. The antibody - ch14.18 - binds to this glycan, enabling various types of immune cells to attack the cancer.

    Neuroblastoma - in which the cancer cells arise from nerve cells in the neck, chest, or abdomen - is the most common cancer diagnosed in the first year of life. Approximately 650 new cases of neuroblastoma are diagnosed in this country every year, and about 40 percent of patients have high-risk neuroblastoma. These high-risk patients are usually treated with surgery, intensive chemotherapy with stem cell rescue (in which patients' adult stem cells, removed before treatment, are returned after chemotherapy to restore the blood and immune system), and radiation therapy. Still, only 30 percent of patients survive.

    Yu and her colleagues compared both the percentage of patients who were still alive without experiencing a recurrence after two years as well as overall survival in two groups of 113 patients each. Patients began the trial when they were newly diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma. After conventional treatment with surgery, chemotherapy, stem cell rescue and radiotherapy, one group was given the standard treatment (retinoic acid) plus immunotherapy (the antibody plus immune-boosting substances), while 113 similar patients received the standard treatment alone.

    After two years, 66 percent of individuals in the immunotherapy group were living free of cancer compared to 46 percent in the standard treatment group. Overall survival improved significantly as well. The trial patient randomization was halted early because of the benefit seen, and all patients enrolled in the trial will receive immunotherapy plus standard treatment.

    Yu noted that the two-year mark is especially important because past trials have shown that those neuroblastoma patients who live without disease for two years after a stem cell transplant will most likely be cured.

    "This is the first time in many years that we have been able to improve the 'cure rate' for neuroblastoma patients," she said. "This new therapy can help us improve care and perhaps offer new hope to many patients and families."

    Yu and her team conducted the early phase I and phase II trials at the General Clinical Research Center at UC San Diego Medical Center.

    US House approves $96.7 bln bill funding wars

    The US House of Representatives on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a 96.7-billion-dollar measure to pay for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars through October 1 as well as aid ally Pakistan.

    Lawmakers passed the bill, which also included two billion dollars to prepare for fighting an influenza pandemic, by a lopsided 368-60 margin.

    The measure did not include President Barack Obama's request for 80 million dollars to close the prison for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, amid congressional concerns about what to do with the detainees there.

    The Senate Appropriations Committee version of the measure includes the monies, but with tight restrictions forbidding their use to transfer or free any detainees on US soil.

    After the full Senate votes, the two chambers will reconcile their rival versions to send a final bill to Obama.

    The House bill includes 400 million dollars to help build up the Pakistani security forces' ability to wage counterinsurgency warfare at a time when US lawmakers worry about the nuclear-armed ally's stability.

    And it includes another 600 million dollars in economic development aid to Pakistan and to improve education and democratic reforms there.

    The spending measure includes 47.7 billion dollars to cover the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan through October 1, and another 23 billion dollars to replace equipment damaged or worn out in the two conflicts.

    Afghanistan would get about 980 million dollars for economic development and agriculture programs, to bolster national and provincial governments and democratic reforms.

    Those monies would help Obama's new strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, which he announced March 27.

    But the committee also attached a provision calling for a progress report in one year's time on those two governments' cooperation with US goals under the new approach.

    The supplemental measure also includes two billion dollars to prepare for fighting an influenza pandemic.

    In addition, it includes 151 million dollars for economic and security assistance for Kenya, Somalia, Southern Sudan, and Zimbabwe, and 470 million to help Mexico in its war with illegal drug trafficking.

    Google Networking Error Caused Outage

    Google has confirmed an error on its end caused the outage.
    Widespread outages involving several Google services - including search, Google Docs, and Gmail - were caused by an upgrade gone awry inside of Google, according to engineers.

    Dmitri Alperovitch, vice president of threat research for McAfee, said that Google this morning attempted to make changes to key Internet routing numbers - known as autonomous system numbers - as part of its ongoing transition from an older networking standard to a newer one called IPv6. An unknown "bug" inside Google's network involving some sort of hardware failure or glitch prevented Internet service providers from finding Google's new ASNs on the Internet - effectively sealing it off from many customers, he said.

    Not all Internet users were affected, but some that use larger providers - such as AT&T or Verizon - appeared to be disproportionately hurt because large ISPs "peer" with Google, or interconnect their networks with Google's networks in order to improve speed and reduce bandwith costs, Alperovitch said. Not all customers at those providers were affected, and smaller ISPs that didn't interconnect their networks were able to route around the problem. But just like when a bad car accident shuts down a key highway, the ripple effects were felt elsewhere.

    The outage began at 8:13 a.m. PDT, according to McAfee's data, and was fixed by 9:14 a.m. PDT. The issue was discussed inside forums dedicated for ISPs and their engineers, such as the North American Network Operators Group. McAfee's customers reported the issue to the security company, which monitors network traffic for some customers.

    Google is a major fan of IPv6 and makes many of its services available through the new network technology. However, IPv6 has been slow to arrive overall, in part because it's a very difficult transition from the current IPv4 network.
    Google spokesman Eitan Bencuya wouldn't confirm what caused the problem but said the company plans to detail what happened in a company blog to be published "shortly."

    NYC Closes Three Schools Over Swine Flu

    New York City has closed three schools in response to a swine flu outbreak that has left one staff member in critical condition and sent hundreds of kids home with flu symptoms, in a flareup of the deadly virus that sent shockwaves through the world last month.

    A Health Department spokeswoman tells The Associated Press that four students and the staff member have tested positive for swine flu at a middle school in Queens. At another middle school in Queens, 241 students were absent on Thursday. Dozens more were sick at an elementary school.

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg scheduled an evening news conference to discuss the outbreak.

    New York City's first known cases of swine flu appeared in late April, when hundreds of teenagers at a Roman Catholic high school in Queens began falling ill following the return of several students from vacations in Mexico.

    At first the virus appeared to be moving at breakneck speed. An estimated 1,000 students, their relatives and staff at the St. Francis Preparatory School fell ill in a matter of days.

    City health officials became aware of the outbreak on April 24. The school closed and health officials began bracing for more illnesses throughout the city.

    But the outbreak then seemed to subside. Additional sporadic cases continued to be diagnosed, but the symptoms were nearly all mild. The sick children recovered in short order. St. Francis reopened after being closed for a week.

    Health officials in New York and elsewhere said that the virus, at least in the U.S., appeared to pack no more serious a punch than the seasonal influenza viruses that arrive each winter.

    Russia unveils new national security strategy

    Russia's new national security strategy, an updated version of its 1997 policy, outlines major threats to the country's national security and defines its national interests.
    The strategy paper, "a comprehensive and fundamental document" intended to last until 2020, was approved by President Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday and released by the Kremlin on Wednesday.

    The new strategy ensures continuity in Russia's national security policy and reflects the country's development priorities and national interests. It also aims to solve security problems that have occurred in the process of development, Medvedev said earlier in a security conference.
    Reports about the draft of the paper trace back to 2004, when Igor Ivanov, the Security Council secretary, said the 1997 policy had completed its term and that Russia was facing new challenges and needed new solutions.
    Russia encountered grave domestic challenges in the 1990s as it saw rampant separatist activities in Chechnya, the emergence of terrorist threats and economic deterioration.
    The situation, however, has changed dramatically in the past decade. As Medvedev put it, Russia's national security strategy through 2020 marked the end of the country's transition period and its entry into a time of long-term strategic development.
    Russia has overcome the systematic crisis consequences accompanied by the collapse of the Soviet Union, managed to safeguard its territorial integrity and sovereignty, and resumed its influence in the world arena, the document said.
    Meanwhile, Russia is facing situations and problems totally different from 10 years ago. That is the background under which the new national security strategy was unveiled.
    The document scrutinizes the security risks in the fields of politics, economy and society. It lists nine priorities, headed by national defense and social security, in the effort to ensure national security.
    The guideline of the new strategy agrees with the "great security view" advocated by Anatoly Utkin, director of the International Research Center at the Institute of U.S. and Canada Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
    Utkin said the paper was more pragmatic compared to earlier ones and maps out many concrete tasks.

    The document attaches great importance to such traditional issues as ensuring national territorial integrity and military security.
    "The instability of the existing global and regional architecture, especially in the Euro-Atlantic region... is an increasing threat to the international security," the paper said.
    The attention of international politics in the long run will be concentrated on the acquisition of energy resources, it said.
    "In a competition for resources, problems that involve the use of military force cannot be ruled out, which would destroy the balance of forces close to the borders of the Russian Federation and her allies," it said.
    Meanwhile, the United States' plan to deploy a missile defense system in Central Europe has remarkably reduced the possibility of safeguarding the global and regional stability. Therefore, Russia will pursue a "rational and pragmatic" foreign policy, avoiding costly confrontation and a new arms race, the document said.
    Russia will actively participate in multilateral cooperation and make its cooperation with Commonwealth of Independent States members a priority, the paper said.
    Western media reports criticized the paper for its claims that the enhancement of the United States' role will damage Russia's national interests.
    Russia, however, has been irritated by the United States due to an array of rows, including NATO's eastward expansion, the proposed U.S. missile shield in Central Europe, "color revolutions" in former Soviet republics and last year's Caucasus war.
    In light of the threats, Russia will continue its military reform and seek to maintain a nuclear parity with the United States, the document said.

    The strategy paper highlights economic security because the Russian economy was hit hard by the international economic downturn.
    "The consequences of the world financial crisis could become comparable to the damage caused by a large-scale use of military force," the paper said.
    The new strategy paper differentiates from earlier versions by stressing economic security, analysts said.
    Economic security has even surpassed traditional security problems as the top priority in the document, said Ruslan Grinberg, director of the Economy Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who participated in the paper's draft work.
    Economic security and its influence on other security issues are repeatedly mentioned in the paper, which says "Russia's national security situation depends directly on the country's economic potential."
    The sixth part of the document singles out seven factors to evaluate Russia's national security, five of which are economic.
    "The preservation of a natural-resources-export model of development" was one of the main threats to the national security in the economic sphere, the paper said.
    Other economic risks include the country's low economic competitiveness and loss of control over domestic natural resources.
    Russia's economy will gain momentum from developing a national innovation system, improving labor productivity, renovating national priority industries, exploring new energy production areas and improving the banking system and financial services, the document said.

    Costa Rica confirms 9th case of A/H1N1 flu

    Costa Rican health authorities confirmed on Thursday the 9th case of influenza A/H1N1 in the country.
    The new confirmed case involves a patient who was in contact with other infected patients, so the national status was changed to "epidemic contact," Vice Health Minister Ana Morice told Xinhua.
    "We keep a sensitive vigilance, to the moment we have determined 873 suspicious cases, from them we have discarded 735 with lab tests from the Costa Rican Institute of Nutrition and Health Investigation and Teaching (INCIENSA)," Morice said.
    Morice said that currently the health authorities are investigating a new symptom case in Cartago province.
    One death related to the new flu, involving a 52-year-old patient, has so far been reported in Costa Rica.

    Russia signs civilian nuclear power pact with Bangladesh

    Bangladesh and Russia signed a deal Wednesday which could lead to construction of the first civilian nuclear power plant in the electricity-starved South Asian nation, an official said.

    The two sides signed a memorandum of understanding on peaceful use of nuclear energy, which officials said was the first step toward construction of a plant.

    "We've had approaches from other countries. We're looking into safety and cost and then we'll decide which country will build the first nuclear power plant in Bangladesh," power minister spokesman Afrazur Rahman told AFP.

    China and South Korea have also made pitches to build Bangladesh's first nuclear power plant, according to Bangladeshi media reports.

    "If it goes ahead, the plant would have a capacity of 600 to 1,000 megawatts," Rahman said.

    With the country badly affected by power outages, the Awami League-led government of Sheikh Hasina, which took power in January, has ordered that talks for building nuclear power plants be accelerated.

    In 2007, Bangladesh received approval from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the global nuclear watchdog, to set up a nuclear power plant for peaceful use.

    Years of under-investment mean state-owned power plants generate only 3,500 megawatts of electricity a day in Bangladesh, whereas demand is 6,000 megawatts and growing at 500 megawatts a year due to increasing industrialisation.

    Power outages are frequent, particularly in the summer months from April to October, when supply is diverted to farms for irrigation.

    A key election promise made by Hasina, who holds a three-quarters majority in parliament, was to increase the power supply.

    Experts say Bangladesh's gas reserve are also fast depleting, forcing the country to look for alternative sources of energy.

    The country is already a signatory of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.
