I fully agree with his view and reiteratethe need to instill in our childrenthe skills necessary for theirhonorable survival. In furtherance of Mr Sanchez’ views, I am one of those disgustedby the increasing number ofadults and now children, messageon a Bristol board in hand,begging at speed bumps along ourhighways. In some instances theystand dangerously in the middleof our highways and in many instances they are femalechildren. Every time I come upon thissituation, it makes me ask: Are we creating a society of beggars?Why do these people notorganize fundraising events intheir communities? Is it becauseit is easier to beg than to workfor what we need? I would prefer any time to stopand spend ten dollars at a Bar-B-Q fundraising event than to dropa shilling into the outstretchedhands of beggars on our highways.Kudos!!!

Page 8 STAR Tels: 626-8822 & 804-4900 Sunday, July 6, 2014 Dengue fever also known as breakbone fever is a mosquito-borne tropical diseasecaused by the dengue virus.Symptoms include fever headache, muscle and joint pains,and a characteristic skin rash thatis similar to measles. In a smallproportion of cases the diseasedevelops into the life-threateningdengue hemorrhagic fever resulting in bleeding, low levelsof blood platelets and bloodplasma leakage, or into dengueshock syndrome, wheredangerously low blood pressureoccurs. Dengue is transmitted byseveral species of mosquitowithin the genus Aedes, principally A. aegypti. The virus has five different types; infectionwith one type usually giveslifelong immunity to that type,but only short-term immunity tothe others. Subsequent infectionwith a different type increasesthe risk of severe complications.As there is no commerciallyavailable vaccine, prevention issought by reducing the habitat andthe number of mosquitoes andlimiting exposure to bites. T ypically people infected with dengue virus are asymptomatic(80%) or only have mild symptoms such as anuncomplicated fever Others have more severe illness (5%) and in a small proportion it islife-threatening. The incubationperiod (time between exposure and onset of symptoms) ranges from 3–14 days, but most oftenit is 4–7 days. Therefore,travelers returning from endemicareas are unlikely to have dengueif fever or other symptomsstart more than 14 days afterarriving home. Children oftenexperience symptoms similar tothose of the common cold andgastroenteritis (vomiting and diarrhea) and have a greater risk of severe complications, thoughinitial symptoms are generallymild but include high fever The characteristic symptomsof dengue are sudden-onsetfever headache (typically located behind the eyes) muscle and joint pains, and a rash.The alternative name for dengue,"breakbone fever" comes You have You have You have You have You have two choices two choices two choices two choices two choices Every Morning: Every Morning: Every Morning: Every Morning: Every Morning: You can You can You can You can You can continue sleeping continue sleeping continue sleeping continue sleeping continue sleeping and dream on and dream on and dream on and dream on and dream on or or or or or Wake up and Wake up and Wake up and Wake up and Wake up and convert your convert your convert your convert your convert your dreams into dreams into dreams into dreams into dreams into relatity relatity relatity relatity relatity The Choice is yours.. Dengue Fever from the associated muscle andjoint pains. The course ofinfection is divided into threephases: febrile, critical, andrecovery The febrile phase involves highfever potentially over 40 C (104 F) and is associated with generalized pain and a headache;this usually lasts two to sevendays. Nausea and vomiting mayalso occur A rash occurs in 50– 80% of those with symptomsin the first or second day ofsymptoms as flushed skin, orlater in the course of illness(days 4–7) as a measles-like rash. A rash described as "islands of white in a sea ofred" has also been described. Some petechiae (small red spots that do not disappearwhen the skin is pressed,which are caused by brokencapillaries) can appear at this point, as may some mildbleeding from the mucousmembranes of the mouth andnose. The fever itself isclassically biphasic orsaddleback in nature, breakingand then returning for one or twodays. In some people, the diseaseproceeds to a critical phase asfever resolves. During thisperiod there is leakage of plasmafrom the blood vessels whichtypically lasts one to two days.This may result in fluidaccumulation in the chest andabdominal cavity as well asdepletion of fluid from thecirculation and decreased blood supply to vital organs. There mayalso be organ dysfunction andsevere bleeding, typically fromthe gastrointestinal tract. Shock(dengue shock syndrome)and hemorrhage (dengue hemorrhagic fever) occur in less than 5% of all cases ofdengue, however those who havepreviously been infected withother serotypes of dengue virus( "secondary infection" ) are at an increased risk. This critical phase,while rare, occurs relatively morecommonly in children and youngadults. The recovery phase occurs next,with resorption of the leaked fluidinto the bloodstream. This usuallylasts two to three days. Theimprovement is often striking,and can be accompanied withsevere itching and a slow heartrate. Another rash may occur with either a maculopapular or avasculitic appearance, which isfollowed by peeling of the skin.During this stage, a fluid overloadstate may occur; if it affects thebrain, it may cause a reduced levelof consciousness or seizures. A feeling of fatigue may last forweeks in adults. There are no approved vaccinesfor the dengue virus. Preventionthus depends on control of andprotection from the bites of themosquito that transmits it. TheW orld Health Or ganization recommends an Integrated V ector Control program consisting offive elements: Advocacy social mobilization and legislation to ensure that public health bodies andcommunities are strengthened; Collaboration between thehealth and other sectors (public and private) ; An integrated approach to disease control to maximize useof resources; Evidence-based decisionmaking to ensure anyinterventions are targetedappropriately; and Capacity-building to ensure anadequate response to the localsituation. The primary method ofcontrolling A. aegypti is by eliminating its habitats. This isdone by getting rid of opensources of water or if this is not possible, by adding insecticidesor biological control agents tothese areas. Generalized sprayingwith organophosphate orpyrethroid insecticides, whilesometimes done, is not thoughtto be effective. Reducing opencollections of water throughenvironmental modification isthe preferred method of control,given the concerns of negativehealth effects from insecticidesand greater logistical difficultieswith control agents. Peoplecan prevent mosquito bites bywearing clothing that fullycovers the skin, using mosquitonetting while resting, and/or theapplication of insect repellent(DEET being the mostef fective) However these methods appear not to besufficiently effective, as thefrequency of outbreaks appearsto be increasing in some areas, probably due to urbanizationincreasing the habitat of A. aegypti. The range of the diseaseappears to be expanding possiblydue to climate change. Symptoms of Dengue

Continue T o P ag e 1 4 The last three weeks haveprovided a consistent narrativeof fast, attacking football andexcitement exactly as thegame's rulers would haveimagined it when they handed thetournament to Brazil. Even the line-up for the lasteight has a balance that bringspleasure to the purists, as fourteams from the Americas are complimented by a quartet fromEurope all of them groupwinners. The destiny of this W orld Cup will be decided in the iconicsurroundings of the Maracana inRio de Janeiro on Sunday weekbut all quarter-finalists have theopportunity to show where thebalance of power lies betweenthe two continents. The seven W orld Cups held here in the Americas have failed to produce a European winner On the flip side, Brazil are the onlynation from the Americas to achieve a win on Europeansoil when they triumphed 5-2in the final against hosts Sweden56 years ago. So for Netherlandscoach Louis van Gaal France's Didier Deschamps Germany's Joachim Low and the Belgian Marc Wilmots there is the dual opportunity to make history fortheir countries and exertEuropean domination. For the likes of Luiz Felipe Scolari, attempting to win his second W orld Cup with Brazil, and Ar gentina's Alejandr o Sabella in particular there is the chance to send Europe homeempty-handed once more. At this stage Europe has often dominated. When Ar gentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguayreached the last eight in SouthAfrica four years ago, it was thefirst time representation from theAmericas had been so strongsince the Mexico W orld Cup in 1970. So a similar number hererepresents a continuedresurgence and an advance onthe dark days of 1990 and 1994when only one nation from theAmericas reached the last eight -although Brazil did what matteredin the United States and claimed the trophy against Italy onpenalties. It was an era when the greatDiego Maradon a was critically on the wane for Ar gentina, even though they advanced to lose adesperately dull final to W est Germany at Italia 90 the SouthAmericans showing they couldstill usually get one team in at theW orld Cup's sharp end. The figures started to stack upa little more attractively with twoteams from the Americas at this stage in 1998, 2002 and 2006 -and now we have the face-off herein Brazil. So do these figures represent alasting shift in the balance ofpower back towards theAmericas, or are there justgeographical forces at work? Germany coach Low believestournaments held in SouthAmerica hold a special appeal forthose born there. As he prepared for an all-European quarter-finalagainst France, he said: "The South and Central Americans Argentina, Colombia, Brazil,Mexico, Costa Rica havecertainly shown that on theircontinent they want to showtheir class. "They want to show the entireworld 'this is where we'replaying, this is our continentand we will do whatever isnecessary to satisfy our fansand our countries'. "It was no surprise that these teams performed so well. Theyare very strong; they are at homeon this continent and you canfeel that."The continued influx of South American players into Europesince those struggles in the early90s has bred familiarity with thestyle and demands, producing (L-R) Arjen Robben, Lionel Messi, Neymar da Silva Santos and Andr e Schurrle

The threesuperstars of the tournament sofar Brazil's Neymar Lionel Messi of Ar gentina and the emerging Colombian James Rodriguez ply their trades at Barcelona and Monacorespectively South America football writer T im V ickery also believes the continent benefited from achange in the qualificationprocess. "There can be no doubt that the so-called lesser nations inSouth America have made dramatic strides since theintroduction of the marathonW orld Cup qualification format in 1996," he said. "Regular competitive games andguaranteed income has allowedthem to appoint good coachesand build proper sides. "The South American nations realised that the forces ofglobalisation take their playersto Europe at an ever-earlierage.

The South, Central and NorthAmericans have also bought intothe fast-flowing, high-tempostyles that have been a feature ofthis W orld Cup. The African sides such as Nigeria and Algeria have shown the way too. It would be wrong to suggestdefence has become a forgottenart but the most successful teamshave embraced the mood ofswift, counter-attacking intent. Algeria coach V ahid Halilhodzic whose team created such a fine impressionbefore going out to Germany inextra time in the last 16, believesthe demands of the Europeanleagues have also given theAmericas an opportunity to maketheir mark here. "The debacles of some European teams like It aly Spain or even England -although for me England wasnot a surprise were due to thefact they were a little bit tired,"he said. "There was some saturation because their ownnational leagues were difficult, SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo,W ednesday July 2, 2014: A man from Esperanza V illage, Cayo was today taken to court forallegedly injuring his girlfriendand for stealing her pursecontaining cash and a cellulartelephone.

"They rested for a fewdays but it's not enough.There was a lot of physicaltiredness but also psychologicala lack of motivation I'veseen in some of the Europeanteams. For me, some playerswho had won a number ofthings and were not reallywilling to win here. They didn'twant to make more moneyor really give it their all towin the W orld Cup." He believes this particularlyapplied to the dramatic decline inholders Spain, who were expectedby many to fly the flag forEurope once more as theyattempted to break through theSouth American barrier and retain the trophy "There was a lack of ambition," he said. "They won absolutely everything in thelast decade and I think theywere not willing to fight anymore." One element that has alwaysbeen regarded as having asignificant influence is theheat of the Americas, in particular the fierce temperature of two tournaments held inMexico. Former England wingerChris W addle said: "Of course there is an advantage forplayers who have been broughtup in hot climates, but I thinkwith modern sports scienceand preparation techniquesit is not as much of a factor as itwas. "I played in Mexico in 1986 and that was really hard. It wasplayed at altitude and thetemperatures were up about 35to 40 degrees. "In some ways we werethe guinea pigs back thenand now in the modern era, you've got dieticians, sportsscientists and all mannerof people who give youadvice on how to get themost out of your body I think it is a more levelplaying field for Europeanteams coming to places likeBrazil now ." And on that level playing field in Brazil, a wonderfulW orld Cup has delivered a straight fight for supremacybetween Europe and theAmericas.
