Rare deadly tick-borne virus reported in Indiana

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Indiana state health officials say the CDC has confirmed two cases of the deadly Heartland virus.The Heartland virus was recently discovered and is believed to be transmitted by ticks. The symptoms are flu-like and the disease attacks blood cells that fight infection and help with clotting.“Tick bites can cause serious illness and even death, and the discovery of Heartland virus gives Hoosiers another important reason to take precautions,” said State Health Commissioner Jerome Adams, M.D., M.P.H. “If you become ill after spending time outdoors, visit your health care provider immediately — especially if you found an attached tick. Prompt diagnosis of tick-borne illness helps prevent complications.”Hoosiers can reduce their risk of tick bites by:*        Avoiding direct contact with ticks by staying away from wooded and brushy areas and walking in the center of trails*       Using EPA-registered insect repellents with active ingredients such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon eucalyptus*         Applying products containing 0.5% permethrin to clothing and gear, such as boots, pants, socks, and tentsOfficials say ticks are found in grassy and wooded areas and are most active in late spring and early summer. In 2016, Indiana recorded more than 200 cases of tick-borne illness.After outdoor activities, people should conduct full-body tick checks using a hand-held or full-length mirror. Children should be assisted when performing tick checks. Showering or bathing can help remove any unattached ticks. Pets, coats, and day packs should also be checked for unattached ticks. Tumbling dry clothes in a dryer on high heat for 20 minutes will kill unattached ticks on clothing.last_img read more

Forward Madison FC: Flamingos gear up for final stretch as they hope to make playoffs in inaugural season

first_imgWhen Forward Madison FC began to play this past spring, they officially became Madison’s first-ever professional soccer club. Playing their home games at Breese Stevens Field, they have drawn hordes of fans for just about every game, leading the league in average attendance per game.Considering Forward Madison’s high attendance rates, it is clear that the team means a lot to the local community and soccer culture in the area.The team’s fan club — the Flock — turns out in large groups to every home game and even some road games. They also host watch parties at local Madison bars for every road game and major announcements during the offseason.Forward Madison FC: Flamingos mount comeback victory against Orlando City, look ahead to home openerThe Forward Madison FC Flamingos (1-2-0) mounted an impressive comeback victory against Orlando City B (0-3-1) Friday night in the Read…The team’s promotions are also perhaps the most unique of any American professional sports team, including games with special ticket deals involving watermelons, bowling, and even Naturdays — the unofficial drink of broke college students.They also recently hosted a game themed around “The Office” television show, where they managed to get Leslie David Baker (who played the character “Stanley”) to make a special appearance and sold soft pretzels and crossword puzzles as a promotion.Along with their regular-season USL-League One schedule, Forward Madison made appearances in several scrimmage games and even a tournament this season. Included in these scrimmage match-ups are two games against the University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team.In an early-season match back in April, the Flamingos defeated the Badgers by a score of 2–0 on one of the first warm days of 2019. That was also the first game played at Breese Stevens Field this year, and it included Wisconsin alumni Carl Schneider on the field for Forward Madison.“I’ve been playing at Breese my whole life and I’ve never seen it so rowdy,” Schneider said. “The Flock was amazing. The songs they were singing, I had them stuck in my head at halftime.”Forward Madison FC: UW alumnus looks to be hometown favorite as new inducteeUniversity of Wisconsin soccer alumnus Carl Schneider is the newest signee of Forward Madison FC, Madison’s first ever professional soccer Read…Throughout the season, several star players have emerged, starting with forward Don Smart. Smart earned the mid-season USL League One MVP award while scoring seven goals to go along with four assists to this point, both of which are good enough for top-10 in the league.Smart’s signing was the first for Forward Madison late last year, making him an obvious choice as a leader for the squad. Smart is undersized for a forward but uses his speed to create scoring opportunities for both himself and his teammates.Smart is obviously a fan-favorite player for the Flamingos, but what separates Smart from the rest is that he reciprocates that feeling for the fans and the city of Madison.“I love this weather and I love the fans,” Smart said after a game early in the season. “You can’t get any better.”Along with Smart, forwards Paulo Júnior and Josiel Nùñez have contributed in a big way to the sixth-place Forward Madison club. They’ve combined for seven goals and eight assists, while also being tied for third in the league in chances created with 38 opportunities each.Forward Madison FC Head Coach Daryl Shore offers insight, optimism on inaugural seasonDaryl Shore, the head coach of Forward Madison FC, the new professional soccer team that calls Madison its home, is Read…Altogether, these players have contributed to a surging Forward Madison team, who went from ninth place in the standings up to a fourth-place spot, putting them right on the cusp of making the playoffs.In a league with just ten teams, only the top four make the playoffs, and the Flamingos are right there knocking on the door. Thanks to a recent streak where the team won three straight, they are tied for fourth-place with only a few games left in the season.“Yeah definitely, we just gotta keep the momentum, you know keep grinding with the team and you know, just keep the same spirit and just keep going and we play like this, you know, day in and day out, you know, I guarantee a win every single day,” Smart said of the streak.With only a handful of games left, Forward Madison must prove their strength as the season comes to an end. Nearly all these games are against teams currently in playoff position, meaning the Flamingos control their own destiny as they attempt to earn a playoff spot in their inaugural season.If you haven’t gone to a Forward Madison FC game yet, you should definitely check it out if you can! Even when the team doesn’t win, the atmosphere of the games makes it worth the trip, even warranting some attention from the players.
