Campenaerts Hour Record reveals prototype Gaerne G.Stilo Aero road shoes

first_imgWe separately detailed the custom Ridley Arena TT bike setup that Belgian & European time trial champ Victor Campenaerts rode to a new Hour Record on the track this week. But tucked inside of the info from Ridley were a prototype pair of Gaerne road bike shoes with their own laces tucked away. Based on Gaerne’s top road shoe, they get around the UCI’s prohibition of separate aero shoe covers, by making the shoes aero from the start.Prototype lace-up Gaerne aero road bike shoescourtesy RidleyHere’s something we haven’t seen from Italian shoemaker Gaerne before – aero road shoes. Developed to get around the UCI ‘no shoes covers’ policy on the track, Gaerne created this new aero version off their premium G.Stilo road shoes.The aero shoes share the same general G.Stilo construction with lightweight & stiff full carbon sole. And they get the same basic synthetic microfiber upper, just without laser cut holes for ventilation. The top of the shoe sews a new stretchy rubber cover over a set of small diameter laces. Gaerne even say that they are faster than their standard Boa dial G.Stilos with aero covers on top.Campenaerts is apparently happy with the prototype aero shoes, having already won a stage of Tirreno wearing them. He says he will continue road racing in the shoes. And from what we hear, we expect they will get an official debut from Gaerne as a new offering very soon.Gaerne.comGot an hour to kill watching a powerful rider go in circles with dodgy commentary?

Eyes have power to make us feel connected

first_imgJournal and Courier: As a student at Purdue University, Olivia Maple spends about 40 minutes a day walking back and forth to class on campus. Although she sees passersby, she tries not to make eye contact.“It’s kind of awkward,” said the 21-year-old senior. “I don’t want them to think I was staring at them for no reason. I just kind of stare off, not looking at anyone in particular.”In our busy, tech-saturated world, making eye contact can seem like an uncomfortable task, but new research from Purdue shows that even the slightest glance from a stranger can make a person feel more connected. However, being looked through — even by a stranger — makes someone feel more disconnected.Read the whole story: Journal and Courier More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Study: Kids’ MRSA blood infections less deadly but still a problem

first_imgA study today in Pediatrics indicates that MRSA bloodstream infections affect children differently than adults, and that without early and aggressive treatment, children are at risk of developing serious complications.In a retrospective study of more than 200 children diagnosed as having methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia, researchers found that while mortality was low and the median duration of MRSA bacteremia is much shorter in children than in adults, nearly a third experienced treatment failure. And with each additional day the blood infections linger in children, the increased risk of developing complications rose by 50%.”It really highlights differences in what we know about epidemiology of infections in children compared to in adults,” study author Rana Hamdy, MD, MPH, director of the antimicrobial stewardship program at Children’s National Health System, said in an interview.The findings also suggests further research is needed to pinpoint the proper amount of vancomycin—the antibiotic of choice for MRSA infections—needed in children with MRSA bacteremiaTreatment failure commonOf the 278 children with MRSA bacteremia identified by the researchers in three children’s hospitals in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Utah, 232 met the criteria for inclusion in the study. The median age of the children was 5.3 years. The primary sources of the infection in the children were osteomyelitis, or bone infections (31%), catheter-related bloodstream infections (22%), and skin and soft-tissue infections (16%).Bone infections tend to be common in children because their growing bones require a greater blood supply.While MRSA bloodstream infections in adults are generally healthcare-associated, 78% of the children’s were community-onset, meaning they occurred in the home or in another non-healthcare setting, such as a school or daycare center.Of the 232 children with MRSA bacteremia, 31% experienced treatment failure, which was defined as 30-day MRSA-attributable mortality, recurrence of bacteremia within 30 days, and persistence of bacteremia for more than 3 days. Twenty-three percent of the children developed complications, including blood clots and the spread of the initial infection to another site in the body.Five of the patients (2%) died within 30 days. The median duration of bacteremia was 2 days.In adults, by comparison, mortality from MRSA bacteremia can be as high as 30%, and the pathogen remains in the bloodstream for an average of 8 to 9 days.To determine the criteria for treatment failure, Hamdy and her colleagues did a secondary analysis of the outcomes. From that analysis they determined that endovascular infections (odds ratio [OR], 4.45), musculoskeletal infections (OR, 2.4), and critical illness (OR, 2.77) were all associated with increased odds of treatment failure.Hamdy explained that the duration of bacteremia will generally be longer when there is a greater burden of bacteria in the blood, and that occurs when the main sources of infection are large bones or the heart. “It seemed that those were the infections that were harder to clear, and those children ended up having the bacteria detected in their blood for longer periods,” she said.Also, further analysis showed that for those children who had bacteremia for longer periods, every 1-day increase in duration was associated with a 50% increase in the odds of developing complications.Early, aggressive treatmentFor Hamdy, this in an indication that clinicians need to administer appropriate antibiotic therapy and make sure they drain any abscesses—which frequently occur in MRSA infections—early on in the infection. “For patients who have MRSA bloodstream infections, early and aggressive therapy with both antibiotics and appropriate source control, with drainage of any abscesses, is going to be very important to reduce the risk of complications,” Hamdy said.But Hamdy and her colleagues found that appropriate antibiotic therapy for children with MRSA bacteremia may also look different than it does for adults. Unlike in adults, who are more likely to experience treatment failure when they have low concentrations of vancomycin in the blood, treatment failure in children was not linked to vancomycin concentrations.This finding could be important, the study notes, because the high doses of vancomycin recommended for adults with invasive MRSA infections have been linked to nephrotoxicity (toxic damage of the kidneys) in children. “Additional studies are needed to better understand what the target dose or concentration should be in children,” Hamdy said.Beyond the implications for treatment of MRSA bacteremia in children, Hamdy thinks the study shows that bacterial infections in children may need to be managed differently than they are in adults. “A lot of our management practices, even when it comes to doses of antibiotics in children, have been extrapolated from adults,” Hamdy said. “I think this is one of many examples that show we really can’t do that, because the epidemiology, the outcomes, the characteristics of these infections are very different in children than they are in adults.””We need to understand how these infections affect children distinct from how they affect adults, and I don’t think we can make any assumptions about the way that diseases play out in children based on what they do in adults,” she added.See also:May 5 Pediatrics studylast_img read more

Bellone’s Message To Protestors

first_imgSuffolk County Executive Steve Bellone had a message to Commack protestors: “do it safely.”“You have every right to get out there and protest. I respect that. But do it safely,” Bellone urged. “Deliver the message safely — do it in a way it will protect yourself and other people.”Residents held up signs and blared car horns, most not wearing masks or staying six feet apart, demanding the state reopen the economy.“We know we need to reopen the economy, but we need to do it safely,” Bellone said. “We’re working with village mayors and supervisors on how they will reopen. The goal is to reopen in a coordinated way.”Nassau, Westchester, and Suffolk counties announced they will work together to do so.“We are making progress for hitting the key metrics,” Bellone said.The supervisors discussed syncing the timing of opening beaches, parks, and other facilities in order to ensure the variation between towns doesn’t lead to a surge in crowding at one location due to closure at another.rmurphy@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more
