Insights about Covaxin: India’s indigenous Covid-19 vaccine candidate

first_imgThe vaccine candidate, called Covaxin, has been developed by Hyderabad-based, Bharat Biotech India Ltd (BBIL) who got approvals from the Drug Controller General of India on June 29 for phase-I and phase-II trials.What is Covaxin?India’s first indigenous Covid-19 vaccine candidate, Covaxin is an inactivated vaccine created from a strain of the SAARS-cov-2 virus. It has been developed by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research(ICMR) and the National Institute of Virology. Bharat Biotech also has another vaccine candidate, ‘CoroFlu’, which it is developing in collaboration with University of Wisconsin–Madison and vaccine manufacturer FluGen.I wrote a blog regarding this in the month of April. Click the clink for my previous blog, there are nearly 150 vaccine candidates under development currently, of which 17 are undergoing human trials. University of Oxford’s vaccine is the furthest in the trial, currently in the third phase, while there are various candidates in the second phase.What are Inactivated Vaccines?Inactivated vaccines are made from microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria that have been killed in the labs through physical and chemical processes and cannot cause disease. This procedure is known as the old school process of vaccination. As per the WHO, inactivated vaccines have no risk of inducing the disease and have a less strong immune response compared to live vaccines.How was covaxin developed?The SARS-cov-2 strain was isolated in National Institute of Virology, Pune and was transferred to Bharat Biotech. Bharat Biotech then started working on the inactivated vaccine at its high containment facility in Hyderabad.last_img read more

Baseline Specifications for the 3.5 CBRS Band are Now Complete

first_imgClick here read more about the WInnForum CBSD Certification Program. The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) has completed the ten standards comprising the baseline specifications for commercial operations within the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band. This event allows the finalization of CBRS products that are already in various levels of testing and sets the stage for the rollout of commercial CBRS networks.CBRS is know as the Citizens Broadband Radio Service. In 2015, the FCC authorized the use of the 3.5 GHz band i.e 3550 MHz to 3700 MHz for shared wireless access. This band was previously used by the US Navy and other DoD members and was not open for commercial use. The radio interface for CBRS used in this band will be the same as LTE, however the difference will be that this spectrum will be shared by all contenders who have access to this band i.e they will be able to use the spectrum when required and once they are done using it, it will be freed up for use by other requesters.What the Stakeholders are saying:According to Alphabet Inc, completion of these standards demonstrates that it is now possible to make major changes in how they approach managing spectrum resources to provide the abundant bandwidth essential to the society. This accomplishment shows that flexible, cloud-based management can enable spectrum to be used for many purposes simultaneously, and relegate the exclusive, command and control vision of spectrum allocation to history.Ricky Corker, Executive Vice President, Nokia, believes, that the 150 MHz of CBRS shared spectrum band that has been made available in the US will enable cost effective coverage and capacity expansion at a large scale. The completion of detailed specifications of the CBRS Baseline Standards, while working with various contributors from multiple companies, according to him, is a monumental milestone achievement.According to Ericsson, USA, the completion of the CBRS Baseline Standards represents an important milestone for spectrum sharing, unleashing the band’s potential for innovation. The wholehearted cooperation of incumbents, including the DoD, the NTIA, the fixed satellite industry, and the commitment of the FCC to the success of the CBRS is to be acknowledged. Ericsson is now looking forward to speedy certification of the SAS and ESC and a smooth transition to commercial operation of LTE nationwide in the 3.5 GHz shared spectrum band.Verizon too was happy to see the WInnForum make timely progress in publishing CBRS protocol and test specifications. According to the US telecom giant, these are critical steps in the testing of CBRS SAS systems, ESC systems, and CBSD devices and the eventual deployment of network infrastructure and consumer devices on this highly desirable CBRS spectrum. Access to additional wireless spectrum is essential for providers who want to deliver on the promise of next generation technologies and thus the company believes the FCC’s new CBRS shared spectrum approach is an innovative and responsible way to leverage all the available spectrum resources in the U.S.According to Chuck Hogg, Chairman of the Board of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA), over the past two years WISPA and its members, both operators and manufacturers, have made substantial investments to be in a position to rapidly deploy in the CBRS band so that they can bring broadband to rural Americans who lack service today. The release of these standards is a critical milestone that will pave the way for a more connected future in rural America. With CBRS, the U.S. is on the cusp of commercializing a revolutionary spectrum allocation model — not only will it ensure that limited public airwaves are put to their most efficient use, it also gives innovators from all types of businesses, with all types of business models, the opportunity to compete for protected spectrum.Don Stockdale and Julius Knapp, Chiefs of the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and Office of Engineering and Technology stated that the Commission’s rules for the Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service at 3.5 GHz anticipated that a multi-stakeholder process would work to establish many of the details for the functioning of the required Spectrum Access System and related matters.Also commenting on the occasion, Lee Pucker, CEO of the WInnForum who said that the creation of these ten baseline standards included more than 60 stakeholder organizations participating in 1,345 hours of standards development meetings, accounting for more than 30,000 person hours of investment in meetings alone from those organizations. Now that the WInnForum Baseline Standards are complete, equipment and services targeted for use in the band can begin the certification processes.The specifications in the baseline include: Click here to register technologies for use in the band.Click here to view WInnForum Accredited CBRS Vendors or apply for approval: WINNF-TS-0112-V1.4.1 CBRS Operational and Functional Requirements WINNF-TS-0065-V1.1.0 CBRS Communications Security Technical Specification WINNF-TS-0071-V1.0.0 CBRS Operational Security Technical Specification WINNF-TS-0016-V1.2.1 SAS to CBSD Protocol Specification WINNF-TS-0096-V1.2.0 SAS to SAS Protocol Specification WINNF-TS-0061-V1.1.0 SAS Test and Certification Specification WINNF-TS-0245-V1.0.0 PAL Database Specification WINNF-TS-0022-V1.1.0 CBRS PKI Certificate Policy WINNF-TS-0122-V1.0.0 CBSD Test and Certification Specification WINNF-TS-0247-V1.0.0 CPI Accreditation Standard CBRS Certified Professional Installer (CPI) Training Program Administrators CBRS PKI Root of Trust Operatorslast_img read more

“Get Out” the knife: Jordan Peele plans Amazon docu-series about Lorena Bobbit

first_imgThe Oscar-winning director of Get Out is creating a four-part docu-series for Amazon about Lorena Bobbit, the Virginia woman who in 1993 notoriously cut off her husband’s member with a kitchen knife while he was sleeping.Following her attack on her then-husband John Wayne Bobbitt, Lorena threw the member in a field; it was eventually surgically reattached.  Lorena, who claimed her husband abused her during their marriage, was found not guilty by reason of insanity.  The couple divorced in 1995.The docu-series, titled Lorena, will cover the incident — which made Bobbit a household name — as well as the media frenzy that followed.“When we hear the name ‘Bobbitt,’ we think of one of the most sensational incidents to ever be catapulted into a full-blown media spectacle,” said Peele in a statement. “With this project, Lorena has a platform to tell her truth as well as engage in a critical conversation about gender dynamics, abuse and her demand for justice. This is Lorena’s story, and we’re honored to help her tell it.”The series will be produced under Jordan’s Monkeypaw production company.This is the latest project for the director, who is also producing the 1970s-set drama The Hunt, as well as the crime thriller Black Klansman, along with Spike Lee. He’s also working on a reboot of The Twilight Zone that has been picked up by CBS All Access.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

HR: We Can Help Solve the Youth Unemployment Challenge

first_imgJoin us in ensuring that more youth get that proverbial foot in the door. Do you remember your first job? The skills and lessons you learned? The excitement of that first paycheck you earned? Those early work experiences helped develop your work ethic, grow you professionally and take the first steps along a career path. But today, millions of young people are missing out on this critical opportunity.In the U.S., nearly 3 million youth are being left behind, even as the overall unemployment rate falls. SHRM and other business leaders on a B20 taskforce also identified youth unemployment as one of the top challenges to global economic growth. Being out of work at such an early stage has long-lasting effects on these young people and far-reaching effects on business and society.   Moreover, the millions of unemployed young people in this country represent a tremendous pool of untapped talent.This is why SHRM is proud to partner with Jobs for Americas Graduates (JAG) to make sure our nation’s youth get the opportunities they need today to succeed as citizens, workers and leaders tomorrow.And today we joined 100 thought leaders across business, government and the nonprofit sector to come up with solutions to the youth unemployment challenge. SHRM is doing its part. For example, we supported the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act as it moved through Congress, and gave feedback to the Department of Labor on how to get to a workforce development system that better meets the needs of employers. We are also exploring ways to advocate and promote work-based trainings for youth, including through the new Global Apprenticeships Network, because we know that internships, apprenticeships and other job-related opportunities improve the odds of young people. This is the kind of work happening at the macro level.But perhaps what is most exciting and holds the most promise to move the needle on youth unemployment, is what‘s happening on the ground at the local level. Across the country, SHRM members are finding creative ways to find, hire and skill up fresh talent.·         In Wichita, Kansas, when SHRM member and HR and safety manager Kathy Jewett found that candidates were falling short of the job requirements for open positions at her company, she partnered with a local community college to develop a curriculum that better prepared graduates to meet her needs as an employer. ·         In South Central Michigan, SHRM member and HR manager Angela Grissom is working to connect youth to employment and education at one of the state’s one-stop job centers. Her organization funds wages, provides résumé-writing help and eases the paperwork burden on employers so that some of Michigan’s most at-risk young people get on a solid pathway to employment.·         In Seminole County, Florida, SHRM member and HR Director Ann Speak developed a comprehensive one-year internship program at her organization, complete with rotating assignments, to give students exposure to her industry and build a pipeline of future talent.It’s clear that the HR profession has a lot to offer—and much to gain—when it comes to solving the youth unemployment challenge. Our nation’s young people get the career experience they need and our organizations get the talent we need to succeed now and in the future.last_img read more

2 days agoNicolas Pepe & perspective: Why slating Arsenal attacker just wrong

first_imgNicolas Pepe & perspective: Why slating Arsenal attacker just wrongby Chris Beattie2 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: Nicolas Pepe and these ex-players. “Horrible”. “Redundant”. “I don’t know what he is”. Of course they’re right. Of course they’re right in what they say about Arsenal’s record signing……oh wait. Hang on. That wasn’t messrs Keown, Merson and Wright slating Pepe after Bramall Lane. No. That was John Aldridge and Danny Murphy pulling apart Roberto Firmino’s game just months after joining Liverpool from Hoffenheim.At the time, Aldridge, one of the club’s greatest No9s, would even question Firmino’s courage. Yes, Firmino! The hardest working front-to-back striker in the game. But four years ago, Aldo saw things differently: “The Brazilian also pulled out of a challenge that was 55-45 in his favour. Liverpool fans won’t accept that. I’ve been going for 50 years and I know it’s unacceptable.”Of course, cycle forward to today and Aldridge’s opinion has dramatically changed. As has Murphy’s. The former Reds midfielder would later admit his initial judgment of the Brazilian was wrong. You get the drift. Pepe isn’t three months into his Premier League career and he’s being absolutely slaughtered. The €80m man bearing the brunt of blame for Monday night’s defeat at Sheffield United. Criticism which really is undeserved.Yes, he isn’t playing as a record signing is expected. And yes, he should be burying that chance in the first-half. But it was at the end of a move he’d initiated on the edge of Bernd Leno’s penalty area. And he’d had to bend his run twice to get the timing right to meet the cross. Nine times out o… okay, okay given his current confidence levels… seven times out of ten Pepe is side-footing that volley past Dean Henderson in the Blades goal. It would’ve been one of the great goals of the season. An end-to-end Mickey Thomas or David Rocastle effort. Different players. But Pepe, with all his shimmies and tricks, is also capable of doing that. And next time, there’s every chance he’s volleying the ball home.As mentioned, Pepe isn’t playing like an €80m signing. But he wasn’t the worst player on the pitch on Monday night. Indeed, he had some bright moments. For the neutral, sitting back, it was a performance typical of a player from Ligue 1 trying to get to grips with the rigours of Premier League football. And showing some promise – at Bramall Lane no less. A dart and low cross down the right-hand side could’ve had the Gunners ahead in the first-half. Then after the break – and that miss – Pepe actually beat Henderson, but his shot from outside the area dipped the wrong side of the post.But Pepe kept persisting – which should be encouraging for the Arsenal support. The head hasn’t dropped yet. Which is a good sign. That’s not to say he shouldn’t be doing better – and this isn’t about making excuses for the Ivorian. But watching Pepe get caught up in the extremes of Prem punditry, some reality needs to prevail.”Pepe, is he going to get into the team?” queried Martin Keown, the former Gunners centre-half. “It’s a massive amount of money they have paid for him and Lille will be laughing all the way to the bank with that one.”Really? Luis Campos, Lille’s sporting director, would say otherwise. His job would be far easier having Pepe still on the books than €80m in the bank. Certainly, good friend Jose Mourinho believes so. The Special One a regular at LOSC games last season where he was able to assess Pepe up close.”He knows how to defend, to play in the 4-4-2 as the right winger, you know how to defend, not only that area but also the inside,” said Mourinho, essentially describing Pepe’s performance on Monday night to a tee. “He does that very well. When he has the ball and also without the ball, he is very effective and very direct.”I think this boy has fantastic potential.”And “potential” is the word here. Pepe wasn’t signed by the Gunners for the here and now. At 24, he’s still learning his craft – and now doing so in the most demanding league in the world.Four years ago, when it was Firmino getting it in the neck, Pepe was running around the French Third Division with US Orleans, having been plucked from Angers’ reserves team. Today he’s with Arsenal – and as their record signing. A little perspective is required. Pepe’s first months as an Arsenal player haven’t been as horrible as claimed.
