unh testing campus sewage as part of virus surveillance

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The University of New Hampshire is testing sewage on campus as part of its surveillance for the coronavirus.

The sampling will be used in addition to twice-weekly nasal tests.

“Sewage sampling can be a valuable surveillance tool because it can provide an early warning to possible infection hot spots on campus and help identify areas where the virus may be present but not detected in individuals because they aren’t showing symptoms,” said Paula Mouser, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering.

Traces of the virus’s genetic material can be found in human sewage. The samples will be taken from manholes, each representing wastewater from a grouping of two to five dorms.

There are 10 residence hall groups being tested, representing 4,400 students.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Greek former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis claimed on Tuesday he was under surveillance by private company UC Global, which was spying on Julian Assange during his stay in the Embassy of Ecuador in London.
Varoufakis, who testified through a teleconference hosted in Greek courts, as a witness for the prosecution against UC Global, said that the Spanish prosecutors, who are conducting the investigation against the company, have in their possession piles of his personal data.
He added that he has seen some of the illegally obtained data, which include video recordings, documents, recordings of his conversations with Julian Assange, “even my wife’s passport”, he told The Press Project.
The company in question had a contract with US authorities and is being investigated for potential violations of rights of Varoufakis and other visitors of Julian Assange.
More specifically, the investigation is focusing on the illegal video and sound recording of private conversations between Varoufakis and Assange that were secretly obtained by the security agency.

Varoufakis told The Press …

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – – WREG has obtained new surveillance video of a violent car theft caught on camera. It happened at the Shelby Express gas station at East Shelby Drive and Mendenhall around three Friday morning.

In the video, you see a man in a white shirt and blue pants jump into a car that was left running and unlocked. The vehicle owner spots the thief from inside the store and runs out to stop him. There’s a struggle but the victim can’t hang on to the driver’s side door. He’s thrown to the ground and has to watch helplessly as the thief drives into the night.

People WREG showed the video to, like Memphis resident Tonya Jones, say they wouldn’t have been so bold.

“Nah baby. I’ma let (the thief) go ahead. (The victim) could have got killed,” Jones said, “I’d just put in a police report.”

Surveillance video also shows the victim pulling into the gas station minutes earlier and then getting out of his car without locking it or turning off the engine.

You’re smart. How did it come to this? The way equate it is, it’s like a brick. A brick building, you slowly chip away at it. It starts with issues like self-esteem and control issues, and before you know it, you’re in over your head, and you can’t control the tumble of the wall.”The video became a key piece of evidence, and on Oct. 15, 2019, a judge ruled Robert’s husband guilty of one felony count of domestic abuse strangulation.“What I’ve chosen to do with my life is to break the silence and come out and say no more,” Roberts explained. “You are never alone.
