The restriction is similar to one which crippled ZTE in 2018.In a statement, the DoC said the action stems from information which “provides a reasonable basis to conclude that Huawei is engaged in activities that are contrary to US national security or foreign policy interest”. It said this includes activities alleged in a Department of Justice probe of suspected sanctions violations.DoC secretary Wilbur Ross said the move addresses “the threat posed by foreign adversaries to the nation’s information and communications technology and services supply chain”.However, Huawei hit back, arguing restricting it from doing business in the country “will not make the US more secure or stronger”. It added it is “ready and willing to engage” with the government to “come up with effective measures to ensure product security”.Executive orderAt the same time, President Donald Trump signed an executive order declaring threats to the country’s information and communications technology supply chain represent a national emergency. The move explicitly blocks transactions involving equipment or services supplied by companies deemed to be a security risk, and gives the DoC 150 days to establish a process for reviewing such deals.While Huawei was not named in the order, the US government has long had the company in its sights for a ban.In August 2018, the president took a step in that direction, signing a spending bill which blocked government agencies and contractors from using equipment supplied by Huawei and fellow Chinese vendor ZTE.

High-path H7N8 outbreak reported at Indiana turkey farm

first_imgA highly pathogenic H7N8 avian influenza strain that hasn’t been seen in the United States before has struck a commercial turkey farm in southern Indiana, prompting the culling of about 60,000 birds, federal and state officials announced today.The strain is different than the one that caused more than 200 outbreaks in US poultry last year and hasn’t caused any known human infections, according to a statement from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).Turkey deaths prompted testingDeaths in the flock triggered the testing at the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at Purdue University, and the USDA confirmed the findings today.APHIS is assisting Indiana officials with the outbreak response, and state officials have quarantined the affected farm. Extra surveillance is under way at other farms near the outbreak location, which is in Dubois County.T. J. Myers, DVM, PhD, associate deputy administrator for veterinary services at APHIS, said at a press conference today, “It is a highly pathogenic virus, which means it is a significant virus that does need an immediate response in order to contain it and prevent spread to other facilities. Since the outbreak last year, and all the lessons learned from that, there has been a lot of good work to increase our preparatory efforts at the federal side, the state side, and the industry side.”So we are hopeful that as we respond very quickly to this virus, that we can get it contained and hopefully not see an extensive outbreak like we did last year. But, again, we’ll see how the days to come unfold.”Federal and state health officials emphasized that birds from the flock will not enter the food system, that avian influenza doesn’t pose a food safety risk, and that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers the risk to humans to be very low.The Indiana State Board of Animal Health (IBAH) said in a statement today that a company veterinarian took samples from the flock to the lab for testing after several hundred birds died.State veterinarian Bret Marsh, DVM, said in the statement that the strain was unique to Indiana and the nation and isn’t related to the strains that struck the upper Midwest last year or to an outbreak last May in a backyard flock in northeastern Indiana.Indiana is the nation’s fourth-largest turkey producer, the third-biggest egg producer, and first in duck production. The state’s poultry industry is worth $2.5 billion.Experts anticipate genetic detailsAndrew Bowman, DVM, PhD, from the Animal Influenza Ecology and Epidemiology Program at The Ohio State University, told CIDRAP News that he doesn’t yet know what to make of the new finding and is eager to see genetic sequences before making an assessment.David Stallknecht, PhD, of the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine, said low-pathogenic H7 viruses were very common in wild birds last year—shorebirds and ducks.Dave Halvorson, DVM, an avian health expert who is retired from the University of Minnesota, told CIDRAP News that so far there’s no news on whether the genetic material from the H7N8 virus detected on the farm is from Eurasian or North American lineages.”Once it has been sequenced there will be a search for related viruses in existing databases. H7 low-path viruses have been seen a few times in Midwestern turkeys for the last 8 or 9 years, and we’ll be interested in whether the current H7 is related to those viruses,” he said. Halvorson added that researchers are probably looking through their archives now for H7 viruses that might be related to the current outbreak.So far it’s unclear what the threat from H7N8 is to the US poultry industry, he said. “Southern Indiana does contain a large commercial turkey population, and we will have to wait to see whether this virus begins spreading rapidly in that area.”See also:Jan 15 APHIS press releaseJan 15 IBAH statementIBAH avian flu update pagelast_img read more

Man City’s potential XI for the Community Shield against Liverpool is frightening

first_imgManchester City are the most dominant force in English football at this very moment in time.Not content with winning the Premier League in 2018 by a record point margin and by beating more opponents than anyone else, Pep Guardiola went and did it the following season.And the Spaniard also retained the Carabao Cup and added the FA Cup to the growing trophy collection at the Etihad. LATEST FOOTBALL STORIES 4 Liverpool update ‘Champions Wall’ after ending 2019 as European and world champions targets 4 boost getty 4 LATEST deals Aymeric Laporte in action for Man City Will Gavin looks at the potential of Harry Maguire choosing Man City over Man Utd Guardiola has favoured a 4-3-3 formation with a central pivot in midfield around which to start his attacks. One thing fans began to notice at Man City was the way in which the inverted full-backs to almost act as playmakers.By playing Maguire and Laporte on the ‘wrong side’ (i.e. with their weaker foot) the full-backs can tuck inside and condense the middle. This means City can afford to commit more bodies forward and be comfortable in the knowledge a counter-attack coming back the other way will not be as dangerous.

With Vincent Kompany returning to Anderlecht, there is a gaping hole at the heart of the defence alongside Aymeric Laporte for someone to fill.John Stones has struggled for consistency in recent years, with his performances at the Nations League doing little to dispel suggestions he can be a liability on the ball.Instead, Guardiola has reportedly turned to Stones’ England colleague Harry Maguire. Rivals United are also interested in the Leicester defender, who is valued at £80m.Maguire could be joined in a new look backline by Joao Cancelo. The Juventus defender is reportedly wanted by City, with Barcelona and Bayern Munich interested. So how could City look for the start of the new season?
