Study: For HIV-Infected Babies, Treatment Should Start At Birth

 Cache   
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: Every day, as many as 500 babies in sub-Saharan Africa are born with HIV. Now a study out of Botswana finds that if newborns are given treatment right away, the virus becomes almost undetectable. NPR's Pien Huang reports. PIEN HUANG, BYLINE: If a baby tests positive for HIV, standard practice in many sub-Saharan countries is to give them treatment, but not for weeks or even months after they're born. The concern is that newborns can't tolerate these powerful drugs. For some time, though, researchers have a hunch that treating right at birth is better. Deborah Persaud is a virologist at Johns Hopkins, and she wrote a paper six years ago about a baby girl in Mississippi with HIV who was treated 30 hours after birth. DEBORAH PERSAUD: That baby was known to be infected, went off drugs. And then for 27 months, there was no signs of HIV. HUANG: But researchers weren't sure if this would work in other babies.

Fake DIY videos

Sometimes I fall into the trap of watching videos that claim to teach you some great thing that saves you a ton of money, they go on and on and never get to the thing that brought you there in the first place.

There is one that tells me that I can revive dead batteries back to new at no cost and it is very simple. Car batteries, laptop batteries, Double A's, tripple A's, C batteries, batteries for your electronics, batteries for your toothbrush, batteries for your cameras batteries for your etc...etc...and John Smith of Cincinnati, Ohio is doing it, Marsha Jones of Miami, Florida is doing it, then there's Bill Wuthersby of Glasgow, Scotland, Pierre Thibot of Garches, France, and M'butu Click-click from Thabala, Botswana...etc...and they go on and on for half an hour and still don't tell you how to do it...

Why do people waste their time making these videos? Are they hacking my computer, giving me a virus? Maybe they are brainwashing me with subliminal suggestions, I don't know, but why? Can someone please tell me why?

Muchinguri in Namibia poll rigging row

 Cache   

WINDHOEK — Namibia’s opposition parties are crying foul after incumbent President Hage Geingob was re-elected for a second term with a reduced majority on Saturday. Geingob’s rivals are claiming vote manipulation and accused the Sadc observer mission headed by Zimbabwe’s Defence minister Oppah Muchinguri of being unfit for the task. Mike Kavekotora, the leader of the Rally for Democracy and Progress, said they were co-ordinating with the other parties on how to respond to alleged electoral malpractices. The election was marred by allegations of faulty voting machines. Geingob received 56% of the vote, while closest challenger Panduleni Itula had 29%. Itula made history as the first independent candidate for the presidency, though he retained his ruling party membership. Itula did not attend the announcement of the final results, also aggrieved by what he saw as vote manipulation. The ruling South West Africa People’s Organisation (Swapo) party for the first time lost its two-thirds majority in Parliament. Swapo polled 536 861 of the votes (65,5%), earning the party 63 of the 96 seats in the National Assembly, down from the 77 won in 2014. Kavekotora, whose party won one seat in last week’s election, told reporters that Muchinguri and her delegation were unfit to observe Namibia’s elections because of persistent vote rigging allegations against her Zanu PF party. “The Sadc observer mission was loaded with a lot of people from Zimbabwe. What do we expect from somebody who was coming from a rigged election in his or her own country? How do you expect that person to come and give you a proper observation in another country? That’s just impossible …,” Kavekotora said. He said Muchinguri and her delegation could not do anything other than “rigging and basically supporting your friends in the country that you are now observing elections in”. “We consider this matter to be very serious. We’re going to engage the other political parties and we’ll keep our options open and see what’s the right course of action. Namibia cannot be manipulated. We have to come to a point where we say ‘enough’,” he added. Stergomena Tax, the Sadc executive secretary, tried to address the issue in a tweeted response on Saturday night. She said: “It should be noted that the current Sadc Organ chair is Zimbabwe, thus, the Sadc electoral observation mission (SEOM) to Namibia was led by Zimbabwe, supported by Organ Troika members — Botswana and Zambia. The mission comprised observers from 11 members states.” Shortly after arriving in Namibia before the November 27 vote, Muchinguri had a torrid time trying to explain her selection to lead the regional bloc’s election observation mission after being confronted by both the Namibian media and opposition politicians. The minister, flanked by her deputy head of mission and Zanu PF politburo member Patrick Chinamasa, responded: “It’s important to note that we are not here as individual countries, but collectively as Sadc. SEOM is well constituted with many different people including government officials, eminent persons from Sadc as well as those from the opposition. If there be need to understand more on the composition of SEOM, you can also refer to our strict terms of reference.” Muchinguri insisted that SEOM was in Namibia to merely observe the election and were not involved in the internal processes of the country. A total of 11 of the 15 parties got representation in Parliament, with the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM), which gained 136 576 votes or 16,6% of the total number of votes cast, becoming the official opposition. Other political parties that gained seats in the National Assembly for the first time include the Christian Democratic Voice Party and the Namibia Economic Freedom Fighters, which won one and two seats respectively. The United Democratic Front, National Unity Democratic Organisation, All People’s Party and Republican Party won two seats each, while the Rally for Democracy and Progress and SWANU scraped back into the National Assembly with one seat each. The four parties that did not qualify for any seats in Parliament are the former official opposition, the Congress of Democrats, the Workers’ Revolutionary Party, the National Patriotic Front and the National Democratic Party. — Agencies

HIV-1に感染した新生児に対する早期抗ウイルス薬治療は、ウイルスリザーバを縮小させ、独自の自然免疫プロファイルを誘導する

 Cache   

Neonatal HIV-1 infection is associated with rapidly progressive and frequently fatal immune deficiency if left untreated. Immediate institution of antiretroviral therapy (ART), ideally within hours after birth, may restrict irreversible damage to the developing neonatal immune system and possibly provide opportunities for facilitating drug-free viral control during subsequent treatment interruptions. However, the virological and immunological effects of ART initiation within hours after delivery have not been systematically investigated. We examined a unique cohort of neonates with HIV-1 infection from Botswana who started ART shortly after birth and were followed longitudinally for about 2 years in comparison to control infants started on treatment during the first year after birth. We demonstrate multiple clear benefits of rapid antiretroviral initiation, including an extremely small reservoir of intact proviral sequences, a reduction in abnormal T cell immune activation, a more polyfunctional HIV-1–specific T cell response, and an innate immune profile that displays distinct features of improved antiviral activity and is associated with intact proviral reservoir size. Together, these data offer rare insight into the evolutionary dynamics of viral reservoir establishment in neonates and provide strong empirical evidence supporting the immediate initiation of ART for neonates with HIV-1 infection.

Botswana Hadapi Penurunan Jumlah Perempuan dalam Politik

 Cache   
Keterwakilan perempuan yang rendah dalam politik terus menjadi masalah di Botswana. Saat ini hanya tiga perempuan yang memenangkan kursi di Majelis Nasional yang beranggotakan 57 pada  pemilihan umum baru-baru ini. Para aktivis mengatakan negara Afrika tengah itu memiliki bias terhadap perempuan baik dalam sistem pemilihan dan budayanya. Setelah pemilihan umum 2014, Botswana hanya memiliki empat Anggota Parlemen perempuan terpilih di Majelis Nasional. Jumlah itu menyusut menjadi hanya tiga setelah jajak pendapat nasional 23 Oktober. Kelompok hak-hak perempuan, Onneetse Makhumalo dari Gender Links, menyalahkan sistem pemilihan umum, yang menurutnya mendiskriminasi perempuan. "Kita hidup dalam masyarakat yang sangat mengutamakan laki-laki, sebuah masyarakat yang sengaja atau tidak  mendidik rakyat bahwa  laki-laki adalah pemimpin yang lebih baik daripada perempuan. Jadi ada banyak perempuan, yang mampu sekalipun terkadang menjadi ragu apakah mereka bisa melakukannya," kata Onneetse. Saat ini hanya lima persen wanita di Botswana yang memegang jabatan politik, jauh dari tujuan 30 persen yang ditetapkan oleh blok regional, Masyarakat Pembangunan Afrika Selatan. Laki-laki menduduki sebagian besar kursi politik, meskipun 55 persen pemilih Botswana adalah perempuan. Studi kelompok hak-hak perempuan, Emang Basadi menemukan bahwa sistem pemilihan tidak menguntungkan perempuan, yang juga menghadapi hambatan budaya. "Dalam politik, kita berbicara mengenai hubungan kekuasaan, perempuan lebih suka memberi jalan kepada laki-laki dan berada di belakang laki-laki. Memuji laki-laki, menggalang dana bagi laki-laki, tetapi kalau dipikir-pikir, mereka juga bisa melakukan hal yang sama bagi diri mereka sendiri," kata Segametsi Modisaotsile dari Emang Basadi. Tiga misi pengamat Afrika menyatakan keprihatinan mengenai rendahnya jumlah kandidat perempuan dalam jajak pendapat terbaru Botswana. Sibusiso Moyo, yang mengetuai Misi Pemantau Pemilu SADC, mengatakan situasinya tidak ideal "Pemilu 2019 mencerminkan penurunan perwakilan perempuan dalam kepemimpinan politik, khususnya di tingkat Majelis Nasional," kata Sibusiso Moyo, Ketua Misi Pemantau SADC. Sebagai tanggapan, Presiden Mokgweetsi Masisi telah berjanji untuk menunjuk lebih banyak perempuan ke Majelis Nasional melalui ketentuan konstitusi, yang memberinya kekuasaan untuk bertindak demikian. "Sayangnya, sangat sedikit perempuan yang bisa kita ajukan, tetapi syukurlah, ketentuan konstitusional yang memungkinkan pemilihan anggota khusus parlemen, akan sangat condong ke pada kaum perempuan," kata Mokgweetsi Masisi. Presiden Masisi dilantik untuk masa jabatan lima tahun pertama di Gaborone pada 1 November dan telah menunjuk enam anggota tambahan untuk Majelis Nasional. [my/jm]

Zimbabwe's Teenage Hadebe able to return Turkey with new passport

 Cache   

Zimbabwe international Teenage Hadebe can finally return to his Turkish club after he fell victim to his country's inability to produce passports.

The Yeni Malatyaspor defender was to travel back to Turkey immediately after the international break because he struggled to get a new passport.

The 24-year-old had run out of pages in his passport and with the government's financial problems it has been able to print new ones.

Thousands of Zimbabweans have been affected causing widespread anger and frustration.

Hadebe was eventually issued a new passport on Wednesday a week after the end of the international break to enable to return to Turkey.

The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) intervened to expedite the process of getting him a new document and apologised to the Turkish club.

"We sincerely regret the inconveniences caused to Yeni Malatyaspor by Hadebe's delayed return," Xolisani Gwesela an FA spokesperson said in a statement.

"Zifa is deeply grateful to the government for treating Hadebe's case as a priority. On our part, we are also engaging Yeni Malatyaspor to ensure that we have lasting relations beyond the just concluded fixture."

The former Kaizer Chiefs defender travelled to Zimbabwe during the international break to play for the Warriors against Botswana and Zambia in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

He played in both matches as Zimbabwe drew 0-0 against visiting Botswana and beat Zambia 2-1 in Lusaka.

Hadebe is a key member of the Warriors squad and represented the country at the recent Nations Cup tournament in Egypt.

Botswana opposition in legal challenge over vote 'irregularities'

 Cache   

Botswana's largest opposition on Tuesday said it had filed a legal challenge against the outcome of last month's parliamentary polls, which were overwhelmingly won by the ruling party.

The Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) won 15 seats against the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP)'s 38 in the October 23 elections.

"We do believe that there were irregularities in some of the constituencies," said UDC spokesperson Moeti Mohwasa.

"The UDC, as a party that believes in free and fair elections, will not rest until justice is done,” Mohwasa said.

One of the constituency whose results it is challenging is Bonnington North in the capital Gaborone, where UDC president Duma Boko lost to the ruling party.

Complaints are heard and determined by panels of High Court judges within 90 days of their submission.

The BDP, which has ruled since independence from Britain in 1966, was declared winner after attaining the minimum 29 seats in the 57-member national assembly needed to form a government.

Mokgweetsi Masisi was then declared president, securing his first elected five-year term.

It is the second time that Boko has tried and failed to unseat the BDP.

The BDP retained key constituencies in the southern parts of the country, while the opposition made inroads into the central districts, which were previously the ruling party’s strongholds.

The Botswana Patriotic Front, endorsed by the former President Ian Khama, got three seats and one smaller party bagged one seat.

Convergence

### Introduction Outside of the charmed magic circle of western and central Europe, North America, and the other Anglo-Saxon settler colonies, few indeed are the economies that have managed successful economic development in the sense of _convegence_: materially closing any significant fraction of their productivity and living standards gap vis-a-vis the world's economic leaders. The Northeast Asian Pacific Rim, now including China; further south, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam; India and Sri Lanka; elsewhere, Turkey, Chile, Botswana, Mauritius, and Cabo Verde. That is all. And with perhaps one or two exceptions, those few have followed the particular economic development path of using low-wage manufacturing exports to nurture their domestic communities of engineering practice—a path that is now closing. It has long been easy to see the glass half-full with respect to global economic growth: technologies and organizational forms can be imitated and adopted, do diffuse, and even the poorer parts of the globe are much richer than they were two or one or even half a century ago. It has been much harder to see the glass half-full with respect to _convergence_: the catching-up and closing of the gap vis-a-vis the world's industrial leaders. Why have so few countries been...
