Former Ski Champion, 36, Dies from Mosquito-Borne Illness While Traveling in Mexico 

 

New Zealand ski champion Philippa “Pip” Greig has died after contracting dengue fever from a mosquito bite while traveling in Mexico. She was 36.

Greig’s father, Rob Greig, confirmed the news of his daughter’s death to the New Zealand Herald.

He said Pip was house sitting for a friend in a small village in Mexico when she contracted the mosquito-borne viral infection and fell ill. Rob suspected she was sick for four or five days until neighbors insisted she go to the base hospital in Puerto Vallarta, a 40-minute boat ride away, to seek help.

'Wonderful' Michigan Girl, 9, Is Mauled to Death by 3 Dogs, and Pet Owner Is Arrested 

 

A 9-year-old girl riding her bike near her family’s Detroit home died after an attack by three pit pulls Monday afternoon, after the girl’s father said he’d warned the dogs’ owner that his fence was too flimsy to hold back the animals.

“We had an argument about it just last week and he just didn’t take care of his dogs properly. He could have prevented this,” the father, Armando Hernandez, told Detroit radio station WWJ.

The girl, Emma Valentina Hernandez, was taken to Children’s Hospital of Michigan and died from her injuries in what the Wayne County medical examiner ruled was an accident, reports The Detroit News.

Adults Take to Twitter to Bully 16-Year-Old Climate Activist 

 

A few extremely balanced adults exhibited cool behavior yesterday when they decided to mock a teen on Twitter: 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who set sail from Plymouth, U.K., on a two-week, carbon-neutral sailing voyage to attend climate talks in New York and Chile. Thunberg is a Swedish activist with Asperger syndrome who began striking from school to bring awareness to climate change in May 2018, and has since become a leader of the youth-driven international climate movement.

First class is fading fast. Here's why that's bad news for economy travelers, too 

 

First class isn't what it used to be, at least according to frequent airline passengers like Bonnie Friedman. She's been flying in the front of the plane for years and has witnessed the slow and sad decline of premium service.

"It was never fabulous," says Friedman, a communication consultant who lives on Maui. "But in the last three or four years, it has most definitely lost what little luster it had. The planes are cheaply made, the seats are smaller, the bathrooms almost too small to get into — and I’m a small person."

In first class. Yes, first class.

Friedman, like a lot of other air travelers, has noticed a marked decline in premium service. Seats have shrunk. Leg rests vanished. The food is barely edible, and the service is unacceptable.

And let's be clear about what we mean by first class: We're talking about domestic flights and generally excluding the competitive transcontinental flights, where airlines still make a half-hearted attempt to put the "first" into first class.

Jair Bolsonaro: 'Poop every other day' to protect the environment 

 

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has suggested people should "poop every other day" as a way to save the planet.

His comment came in answer to a journalist who asked him how to combine agricultural development and protecting the environment.

Mr Bolsonaro recently came under fire after official data showed an increase in deforestation in the Amazon.

He then sacked the head of the agency that reported the increase, accusing it of lying about the problem's scale.

These countries have a warning for travelers: Rethink your U.S. vacation 

 

If you’re an American whose vacation plans include, say, Ecuador or Beirut instead of Disney World, there’s a good chance some concerned fellow citizen will grasp their pearls and ask, “Isn’t it dangerous there?” Sadly, as a plague of gun violence continues, mass shootings go unanswered by the government, and gun sales continue unabated, people in other countries may be feeling the same way about the United States.

Now, in the wake of two mass shootings that killed 31 people, foreign nations are warning their citizens about traveling to the U.S. due to unchecked gun violence.

After the Dayton shooting early Sunday, the Japanese consulate in Detroit warned Japanese residents to “be aware of the potential for gunfire incidents everywhere in the United States, a gun society,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

'Alarming' increase in sexually transmitted infections found across Canada 

 

Rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea across Canada have jumped, according to the latest figures compiled by CBC News, which comes amid a new surge in syphilis.

CBC News asked each provincial and territorial government for up-to-date figures for the three most common sexually transmitted infections that are nationally reported due to their public health importance: chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis.

The figures show there were more than 126,700 chlamydia infections and 28,300 cases of gonorrhea diagnosed in 2017, the most recent year for which data is available.

The number of syphilis cases in Canada actually dipped for the first time in a decade during that same year — to about 4,300. But public health officials worry that decline may be short-lived, given recent increases reported in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The life expectancy for every country in the world 

 

Why it matters: The developed world is having fewer children and will soon have a much larger population of retired, elderly people with health care needs. This is likely to cause significant financial strain on government programs and the labor force in many countries. But if people are staying healthy longer, it could lessen some of those economic impacts.

Key quote: "There’s a potential for some significant positive offset through higher elderly workforce participation," Richard Jackson, president of the Global Aging Institute, told Axios. "It’s also possible — but not certain — that health spans will continue to rise along with life spans, and that may take some pressure off."

Highlights:

China surpassed the U.S. for healthy life expectancy for the first time in 2016. Yun Sun, director of the China program at the Stimson Center, told Axios that one reason is that obesity and drug use are not as common in China.

Before you go back-to-school shopping, read this report on toxic fashion 

 

It’s back-to-school time, but you might want to think twice before you load up on new outfits at the mall. Green America, a nonprofit committed to social and environmental justice, just studied the chemical practices of 14 American apparel brands. In a report, Green America said four companies—J.Crew, Urban Outfitters, Forever21, and Carter’s—came in last because they all failed to disclose the chemicals they use in their manufacturing.

“These companies had no publicly-available policies about their use of toxic chemicals, and that lack of transparency is a problem,” says Caroline Chen, Green America’s social justice campaigns manager. “Toxic chemicals in textile manufacturing is bad for the planet and workers. And sometimes they remain in the fabric when they are sold, so they could be harming the end consumer as well.” Spokespeople for J.Crew and Urban Outfitters both said that the brands preferred not to comment. We will update this story with any further responses.

Pet Dog Mauls Elderly Man, Bites Off Arm Flesh Leaving Bone Exposed 

 

A dog mauled an elderly man and ripped off a "chunk of his arm," leaving his bone exposed during the savage attack. The incident took place last week in a park in Derby, England.

Charles Brown, 82, was left bleeding after the attack carried out by a "black, muscular Labrador." According to local media reports, the owner of the dog fled the scene when it attacked the man.

"He’s had his injections, you’ll be fine," the owner said as he ran from the site. Brown managed to call wife Ann, 74, who rushed him to a nearby hospital. Doctors told him he would require a skin graft to repair the damage.

"The force of the dog was indescribable and it knocked me over onto my back. My lower body is all bruised, my back is twisted, and the flesh of my arm was nowhere to be seen... I don’t know if the dog ate it or not, but it was gone, I remember laying in bed that evening and noticing how much flesh was gone," Brown said, according to U.K.'s Metro.

Climate change: 12 years to save the planet? Make that 18 months 

 

Do you remember the good old days when we had "12 years to save the planet"?

Now it seems, there's a growing consensus that the next 18 months will be critical in dealing with the global heating crisis, among other environmental challenges.

Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that to keep the rise in global temperatures below 1.5C this century, emissions of carbon dioxide would have to be cut by 45% by 2030.

But today, observers recognise that the decisive, political steps to enable the cuts in carbon to take place will have to happen before the end of next year.

The idea that 2020 is a firm deadline was eloquently addressed by one of the world's top climate scientists, speaking back in 2017.
