WHO chief raises prospect of ban on live poultry sales | South China Morning Post

Dr Margaret Chan Fung Fu-chun, formerly Hong Kong’s director of health, also said that the regional culture of eating fresh chicken would have to evolve to help governments fight the diseases.

In her keynote address on infectious diseases delivered in Hong Kong yesterday at a conference on investment in Asia, Chan said that so far there was no global pandemic of H5N1 and H7N9 bird flu. But she warned of the “amazing ability” the viruses had to mutate, making them harder to control.

Unsustainable food production methods, such as overcrowding livestock, have been contributing to the spread of infectious diseases. Wet markets in particular have become breeding grounds for new strains of viruses and hotspots for infection, Chan said.

When asked whether the government should halt live poultry sales here, she said it was an idea it “should consider”.

Wet markets selling live poultry are not common in many parts of the world, but in Hong Kong and parts of southern Asia there is still an appetite for fresh chicken, she said. “You can’t just blame the government.”

Chan said she believes the Hong Kong government is trying to encourage a change in that culture.

Redskins Owner Starts Charity So That You’ll Forget About the Racist Team Name – The Wire

Crippling poverty and institutional racism are both bad things, and just because eradicating poverty is more urgent than changing a racist team name does not mean that the latter issue ceases to exist. This is, of course, not even broaching the idea that poverty and racism might somehow be intertwined.

Wells Fargo launches social media command center – Denver Business Journal

(Have to wonder how long it will be before, someone is sued for “corporate” slander or that they start looking to see if those making negative remarks are account holders?)

 

About 30 people monitor the buzz about Wells Fargo among users of social media, with a dozen of those employees based in the San Francisco center.

So far, Wells’ command center has learned that it must develop better explanations of its “hold policies” in accepting deposits, said Renee Brown, the bank’s director of social media and a long-time marketing executive at the bank. Hold policies are a long-time complaint about the banking industry.

Irish activist and sex abuse survivor becomes unlikely papal adviser, demands accountability

“There’s no point in my mind of having gold-plated child-protection programs in place if there’s no sanction for a bishop who decides to ignore them,” Collins said by telephone from her home in Dublin. “The reason everyone is so angry is not because they have abusers in their ranks. Abusers are in every rank of society. It’s because of the systemic coverup.”
