Scholarship Selection

first_imgUniversity of Georgia food science graduate student Ikechukwu “Ike” Oguadinma, 27, has been awarded the Food Safety Auditing Scholarship from the Food Marketing Institute Foundation in partnership with the Safe Quality Food Institute.Oguadinma is one of 15 students who received the award at the SQF International Conference held last October in San Antonio, Texas. Each student received a $3,000 scholarship and an all-expense-paid trip to attend the conference with more than 850 food safety professionals.A native of Nigeria, Oguadinma came to the U.S. to study food science after earning an undergraduate degree in biochemistry. He selected UGA after researching leading food science teaching and research programs in the U.S.“I discovered that UGA has one of the best programs in food science in the country, boasting of esteemed food-safety researchers such as (Distinguished Research Professor) Dr. (Larry) Beuchat and (Regents Professor) Dr. (Michael) Doyle. These are very remarkable people and I knew to work with them and current outstanding faculty in the UGA food science department would teach me a lot and enable me to grow in my career,” he said.Before deciding on UGA, Oguadinma also reached out to UGA food science Distinguished Research Professor Casimir Akoh, also a native of Nigeria.“After learning of his remarkable work on synthetic infant milk fat formula and enzymatic transesterification of lipids, I knew I could translate my degree in biochemistry into food science; a world of possibilities was opened up to me,” Oguadinma said. “The science of food will be here forever because humans need the energy to survive. Today, people have become more aware of what they eat and have become smarter about their food consumption. Now more than ever, safe and healthy food is in high demand.”Oguadinma also appreciates the university’s culture.“I knew UGA was in the South and I have always heard about the South and its hospitality,” he said.Oguadinma came to the UGA Athens campus in 2017 and moved to the UGA Griffin campus in 2018 to conduct research under the guidance of UGA professor Ynes Ortega, a world-renowned parasitologist, at the UGA Center for Food Safety. His work with Ortega focused on two major parasites (Cyclospora cayetanensis and Cryptosporidium parvum) on parsley and cilantro. The parasites can contaminate herbs and fresh produce and cause severe diarrhea in infected individuals.“We looked at how well these parasites survive on these herbs in the field. Cilantro is hugely consumed in a lot of global cuisines, and herbs overall are widely known to be beneficial health-wise,” Oguadinma said. “You want them to be as safe as possible and this research was in response to a need in the food industry.”After completing his master’s degree in food science in fall 2019, Oguadinma began his doctoral studies with UGA Center for Food Safety microbiologist Govind Kumar. His project focuses on antibiotic resistance in microbes, like E. coli and Salmonella; their susceptibility to antimicrobials; and their behavior on different food matrixes.In addition to knowledge in food science and food safety, Oguadinma has learned a lot about leadership and communication at UGA. He serves as the president of the UGA-Griffin Student Advisory Council and is widely involved with on-campus activities.He credits his communication skills to growing up helping his mother, a pharmacist who owns and manages a retail pharmaceutical practice in Nigeria.“I learned to talk with people one on one — older people, young people, people who are patient, people who are not patient, a wide berth,” he said.The oldest of four children, Oguadinma misses his family back home in Nigeria and certain foods he can’t get in the U.S. but, despite cultural differences, he says the quality of life in the U.S. is much better than that of many other countries. “There are other cultural differences, like our predominantly communal way of life, which is different from the strong culture of independence here in the United States. Here on the UGA Griffin campus, you can meet people from a wide range of countries. The diversity is just amazing,” he said. “I’m learning so much in the U.S. and, in the long run, I want to get as much knowledge as I can about the food industry. I’ve learned so much in the few years I’ve been here and I know that I have so much more to learn.”To learn more about the UGA food science program, go to foodscience.caes.uga.edu.last_img read more

How to Replace Cracked and Peeling Grout in 60 Seconds

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sponsored Content by Alure Home ImprovementsFew things are more annoying around the home than having to stare day after day at cracked or missing grout in your bathroom tiles. Those problems are right there, practically glaring at you, taunting you.But you know what? You don’t have to take that abuse another second. Because in this informative episode of our ongoing series, “The 60-Second Fix,” Doug Cornwell, the chief operating officer of Alure Home Improvements, shows us how to fix these unseemly flaws like a pro—all in a matter of minutes.“Grout is that funny kind of material that fills the spaces between the tiles,” explains Doug, in a recent episode titled “How to Replace Cracked and Peeling Grout in 60 Seconds.” “Every now and then, through contraction or expansion, some of that grout may actually shrink away or fall out from the tile.”Step one is to make sure you match the existing grout with the new grout you get from your local hardware store. There aren’t that many choices to choose from so it’s not too hard to get the proper color. Just make sure you go to the store with the right hue in mind, whether it’s dark, antique white, creamy white or bright white. If you’re uncertain, take in a sample or a photo on your smart phone.Before you start to fill in the cracked grout yourself, Doug advises that you squeeze a little of the new grout into a paper cup. Then add just enough water to give the mixture the consistency of toothpaste. As you can see from the video, Doug stirs it around a bit with a plastic spoon so he can dispose of the spoon later once he’s done with the repair job.Next, dip your finger into the mixture in the cup and put a dab on your fingertip. This way you have the greatest control over where you want the new grout to go.Spread the grout smoothly over the cracked or missing area on the tile. Pack it right into the trouble spots. Then wipe away any excess from the tile borders with a disposable rag or a paper towel so only the new grout is left where the grout belongs. You don’t have to worry about being too messy with the application because the new grout will only adhere to itself, not the shiny tile surface. But you don’t want to let it go unattended because the streaks won’t look nice on the tile and they’re easier to wipe off before the grout has dried.Click here for more information on Alure Home ImprovementsSo, after you have tidied up the new grout, wait a few minutes.“In about five minutes it will haze over again,” Doug advises.This is your cue for one more go-round.Take a damp cloth or a moist paper towel—or even a wet sponge, but not soaking wet—and rub it over the newly repaired area. The point of this process, as Doug puts it, is to introduce a little bit more moisture to the grout so it will settle in firmly and securely.There you have it. You can face your bathroom tile with your pride restored.“Problem solved!” says Doug proudly. And he ought to know.last_img read more

Public health worker shortage could imperil terrorism preparedness

first_imgJan 14, 2003 (CIDRAP News) – The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) says the present is an excellent time for states to prepare for the next influenza pandemic and has issued a report to help show the way.Although 47 states are working on or have completed draft plans for coping with a “flu” pandemic, the United States is not prepared for a event like the 1918 Spanish flu, which killed at least 550,000 Americans, according to the ASTHO document.Now is the right time to prepare, because a pandemic is inevitable and because federal grants for public health infrastructure and planning have greatly increased in response to terrorism worries, according to ASTHO. The group’s recently published report is titled “Preparedness Planning for State Health Officials: Nature’s Terrorist Attack: Pandemic Influenza.”The report says an influenza pandemic may cause far more harm than a bioterrorist attack: an estimated 89,000 to 207,000 deaths, 314,000 to 734,000 hospitalizations, 18 million to 42 million medical visits, and 20 million to 47 million additional illness cases. State health officers must take the lead in planning because, in a pandemic, the public, governor, and legislature will look to them for “significant leadership to mobilize and sustain private and public healthcare resources.”The public health resources needed to cope with bioterrorism overlap substantially with those needed to deal with a flu pandemic, the report states. “The overlap demonstrates why state health officials have an unprecedented opportunity, using their bioterrorism assessments and plans as scaffolding, to help create strategies that will improve their states’ response to future pandemics.”Pandemics occur when a wholly new subtype of influenza A virus emerges, the document explains. “There is no way to predict when the next pandemic will occur, but most experts agree that it will happen.” After the 1918 Spanish flu, pandemics occurred in 1957 and 1968, causing a total of 104,000 deaths.When a pandemic comes, it will probably bring two waves of cases, separated by between 3 and 9 months, the report says. Thus health officials should be prepared for a pandemic period lasting longer than a year.The United States has a National Pandemic Influenza Plan prepared by agencies in the Department of Health and Human Services, the report says, but ASTHO does not comment on the adequacy of that plan. In addition, 12 states have completed draft preparedness plans, and another 35 states are working on such plans, ASTHO reports. Some public health experts say those plans identify the major issues in a pandemic but don’t spell out specific steps for responding to such an event, says the report.The likelihood of vaccine shortages is a key reason for each state to have its own plan, according to ASTHO. Because it will take an estimated 6 to 8 months to produce an effective vaccine, there will probably be severe shortages or even a total lack of vaccine in the early stages of a pandemic.Consequently, “There is a need to identify priority groups (i.e. high risk individuals, health care workers, law enforcement) that should first receive the influenza vaccine,” the document says. “Although this has been discussed at the national level, there is no definitive guidance that identifies the priority groups. The CDC Pandemic Influenza Planning Guide for State and Local Officials offers a default list for use in planning activities until decisions are finalized.”The report notes that states may want to link their pandemic flu vaccination plans with their smallpox vaccination plans, which were developed after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidelines last September.Other issues discussed in the document include the use of antiviral drugs, quarantine and containment, laboratory protocols, provider and workforce shortages, use of volunteers, facility and equipment needs, and communication with the public. The report includes detailed checklists regarding legal and policy issues, authority, vaccination/antivirals, surge capacity; communications and education, and laboratory surveillance.The ASTHO report was funded by the CDC and researched and written by Lara Misegades, MS, ASTHO’s senior analyst for infectious disease policy.See also:Full text of report on the ASTHO sitehttp://www.astho.org/Programs/Infectious-Disease/Emerging-Infectious-Diseases/Pan-ASTHO-Pandemic-Influenza-2002/last_img read more

Surprising number of people will tolerate streets with funny names

first_imgBonar Street in Morningside. Photo: Google MapsMs Mulholland said she had never encountered a buyer who rejected a home based on the street name, though when she worked on the south side of Brisbane many Asian buyers would avoid the number four and flock to the number eight. She said on the peninsula, the more serious buyers ignored the potentially funny side of certain names, while those with more of a sense of humour would have a giggle and move on. “People from outside of the area tend to pause before saying certain names or they’ll try to describe where it is near or refer to a building name,” she said. “But it doesn’t stop them inquiring about properties on those streets.” Even Google Maps thinks Bald Knob Road in Peachester is a little risqué.BRISBANE is home to some giggle-inducing street names but sellers need not worry with a new survey showing most homebuyers wouldn’t be turned off by an unappealing address. That’s good news for the residents of Bald Knob Rd, Gross Ave and Weenah St. The Finder.com.au poll found only 4 per cent of Queenslanders, and 16 per cent of Australians, would forego a home because of an embarrassing street name, while a quarter of those surveyed would avoid a dodgy suburb name.

Brussels calls on member states to support ‘collective’ pension savings

first_imgEuropean Union member states must promote “collective” pension savings vehicles, the European Commission has urged.Releasing its annual growth survey, the European executive also praised efforts by a number of countries in reforming their first-pillar pension systems, arguing that a majority of member states had amended systems to “better withstand” the impact of increased longevity.It noted, however, that the reforms could result in further “challenges” and insisted that, to ensure the success and continued support of state pension reforms, steps needed to be taken to maintain retirement income levels, extend working lives or provide other sources of income through “complementary” pension savings vehicles.“Member states,” the report continues, “need to support the development of collective and individual pension plans to complement public pension schemes, including by removing obstacles at European level.” Social partners, it says, also have an important role to play, depending on the circumstances.The reference to collective and individual pension plans is likely to be an attempt to present both second and third-pillar pension saving as viable ways of increasing income on retirement.Olivier Guersent, the most senior civil servant within the Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union directorate general, recently suggested the pan-European pension product developed by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) could play an important role in developing pension saving where occupational systems were not in place.At the same event, EIOPA chairman Gabriel Bernardino suggested there was space for a pan-European occupational defined contribution system.The Commission’s report comes only a few months after social affairs commissioner Marianne Thyssen argued in favour of greater supplementary savings, while acknowledging the “limited” ability of many households to contribute to such systems.last_img read more

UWF Women’s Soccer Falls in Conference Championship Match 2-1 to Montevallo.

first_img Nov. 4, 2007 Box Score  PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of Montevallo Women’s Soccer team denied West Florida’s bid for back to back Conference Championships. Last year, the Argos defeated Ouachita Baptist 1-0 to win the Gulf South Conference Championship. This season the Argonauts were undefeated in regular season conference matches, and the #1 seed in the tournament. West Florida had just beaten Montevallo last week in the final regular season match, but the Falcons got revenge today, to capture the Conference title. The Argos scored first, and Montevallo tied it before halftime, and then got the game winner from Kami Kapaku at the 85th minute to cap off an exciting second half.”When you have two very good teams, it is very tough for one team to win twice in a short span,” exclaimed West Florida Head Coach Joe Bartlinski. “We won last week and had our chances today, but Montevallo was facing elimination from the post-season, and it is tough to play a team with that mindset, especially when they are a quality team with a quality coach.” West Florida (15-3) most likely will get a bid to the national tournament next week; However, Montevallo (13-7) needed a win today to get in the post season tournament.The UWF Women’s Soccer team known for its’ defense started the Championship match with a flurry of offense in the early going. Only 4:52 into the match, the Argos were taking their second corner kick, and Brandi Adams kicked it nicely into the box, where Dernelle Mascall headed into the goal, for a quick 1-0 lead.Just a few minutes later, Mascall got a lead from Naila Owens, made a nifty move and drilled in what appeared to be her second goal in the first 18 minutes; however, the whistle blew just as she was getting off her shot, and it was offsides UWF. Montevallo would dodge two more great chances by UWF as Jodi Galucci and Brandi Adams had solid shots on the goal in the next several minutes, that just missed. As it turned out, that sequence was a hugh turning point in the match.Midway thru the first half, Montevallo had a great chance at a goal on a shot from Brittany Correia, which was blocked by UWF keeper Courtney Jones, and the rebound was almost kicked in by the Falcons Erin Duncan. However, Argo defender Marie Hastings was able to clear it out. That would be the only shot on goal for the Falcons in the first 35 minutes, while West Florida had four shots on goal in the early going. However, Montevallo garned some offensive momentum and put together back to back shots on the goal, in which one finally made it past Courtney Jones.Montevallo’s Angela Buonassisi scored at 36:25 into the first half, with her first goal of the season. Her shot came just after a shot by Natalie Martineau was blocked by Jones. The goal was the first allowed by Jones and the Argos in over 900 minutes of play. The first half would end with the scored tied 1-1.The second half was a hard fought intensely played 45 minutes. UWF had several corner kicks, but couldn’t take advantage. At the same time Sheka Codner, Anastasia Prescott and Linda Ganehed limited the opportunities for Montevallo with great defense and good footwork in getting the ball back out to the midfielders. In all, the Argos outshot the Falcons 18-10, but Montevallo ended up taking advantage of their few opportunities with the goal that mattered the most.Montevallo’s Kami Kapaku put a header in with five miutes remaining off a pass from Jo-Anne McCarthy, to beat the keeper from the right side. The Argos would get a shot attempt from Alison Riley with two minutes left that was blocked, and one last chance with a corner kick from Brandi Adams, that was deflected away. The Argos great run of shutouts ended, but hopefully the season is not over. West Florida should receive a bid to the national tournament which begins next week. Coach Bartlinski was disappointed with the loss, but knows he has a young team with a promising future, and some of the future could be real soon. “We have got to get refocused and move into the post-season, we still have some big fish to fry.” Bartlinski and his team will await word from the NCAA on the post-season bid.
