A swine virus deadly to young pigs, and never before seen in North America, has spiked to 199 sites in 13 states - nearly double the number of farms and other locations from earlier this month.
Iowa, the largest U.S. hog producer, has the most sites testing positive for Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus: 102 sites, as of June 10. The state raises on average 30 million hogs each year, according to the Iowa Pork Producers Association.
PEDV, most often fatal to very young pigs, causes diarrhea, vomiting and dehydration. It also sickens older hogs, though their survival rate tends to be high. The total number of pig deaths from the outbreak since the first cases were confirmed May 17 is not known.
Researchers at veterinarian diagnostic labs, who are testing samples as part of a broad investigation into the outbreak, have seen a substantial increase in positive cases since early June, when data on the PEDV outbreak showed it at some 103 sites nationwide.
The data was compiled and released last week by Iowa State University, University of Minnesota, Kansas State University and South Dakota State University.
The virus does not pose a health risk to humans or other animals and the meat from PEDV-infected pigs is safe for people to eat, according to federal officials and livestock economists.
But the virus, which is spreading rapidly across the United States, is proving harder to control than previously believed. In addition to Iowa, Oklahoma has 38 positive sites, Minnesota has 19 and Indiana has 10, according to the data.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday afternoon to discuss the league's investigation of racist comments purportedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling during a recorded conversation with a female companion.
Evidence from twin and family studies suggests an inherited genetic component to epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) risk. Rare, high-penetrance alleles of genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 account for about 40% of excess familial risk, and GWAS have recently identified common risk alleles at 9p22, 8q24, 2q31 and 19p13, with two additional loci at 3q25 and 17q21 that approached genome-wide significance. However these alleles only explain 4% of excess familial risk, and more risk loci probably exist.
A study group therefore recently pooled the data from two GWAS to inform the selection of SNPs for a large-scale replication. The North American study comprised 4 independent case-control studies that included 1,952 cases and 2,052 controls. The second study was a 2-phase multicenter GWAS that included 1,817 cases and 2,354 controls in the first phase and 4,162 cases and 4,810 controls in the second phase.
The researchers carried out a fixed-effects meta-analysis from the two GWAS for ~2.5 million genotyped or imputed SNPs. They selected 24,551 SNPs associated with the risk of either all-histology (11,647 SNPs) or serous (12,904 SNPs) ovarian cancer on the basis of ranked P values. They designed assays for 23,239 SNPs and included them on a custom Illumina Infinium iSelect array (iCOGS) comprising 211,155 SNPs designed by the Collaborative Oncological Gene-environment Study (COGS) to evaluate genetic variants for association with risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. They then genotyped these SNPs in cases and controls from 43 individual studies from the Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium (OCAC) that were grouped into 34 case-control strata. These included most of the samples genotyped in the initial GWAS. An integrated molecular analysis of genes and regulatory regions at these loci provided evidence for functional mechanisms underlying susceptibility and implicated CHMP4C in the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer.
Social media: learn how to successfully achieve your business objectives and reinforce your messaging and engagement with your audience.
With planning, your small business can use social media effectively.
Here are seven steps to a social media strategy for your business.
1. Determine Your Business Objectives for Social Media
How do you want to use social media to help your business? What goals do you want to achieve?
2. Know Your Audience
Determine the prospects and customers with whom you want to engage on social media. This is your target audience.
3. Choose Your “Hot Buttons”
Target your three to five main topics. These should be categories or words you want to place for in search optimization. Create content around these topics for which you want your business to be known.
4. Stake Your Social Media Turf
Create a presence on all major social media platforms.
5. Set Your Social Media Engagement
Be strategic with your social media time usage. It’s easy to spend more time than you need to on social media. A social media plan—together with a strategic approach—will help you find the right balance.
6. Plan Your Resource Use
For many small businesses, the concept of planning resource utilization may be new. Even if you’re a solopreneur, you must take a strategic view of your time. If you don’t, you’ll find that you’re running from one online emergency to another.
7. Measure Your Social Media Results
Don’t forget to set up everything you’ll need to measure your results. The metrics you’ll want to track will be based on the business objectives you defined.
Within his recent LinkLove presentation, Will Critchlow talked about this idea of becoming a ‘full stack marketer’ and it’s an idea that resonates here at Distilled and the kind of direction we are working towards as a company.When it comes to being a smarter online marketer, it’s important to start thinking beyond SEO, particularly when it comes to analytics. Even if your job is just that, you can learn from other channels and the data they provide. If your client or company does more than just search engine optimisation, then they they need to be tracking as much of these efforts as possible.With a new Analytics module now live in DistilledU, this post serves as an introduction to tracking different marketing channels such as:- Organic search- Paid search and display- Email marketing- Social- Conversion rate optimisation...
