The Bulldogs are in 13th place on the team leaderboard with 36 holes remaining to play at the Vanderbilt Legends Club. , who is competing as an individual and not in Georgia's lineup for the weekend, posted the low score of any Bulldog on the day. The senior carded a 1-under 71 and is tied for 13th individually. Hung's score, which was six shots better than Georgia's highest counting effort on the day, therefore did not count in the Bulldogs' team total team total. "We know we have a very deep team and that played out today," head coach said. "There's a lot of competition to get into our lineup each week, and Jo just missed out for this weekend. I'm happy she's able to compete as an individual. The players who earn spots in our lineup need to take advantage of that opportunity. There are a lot of birdies out there, and we know tomorrow is another day. We finished with four birdies on the last two holes, and we'll look to carry that momentum into tomorrow and get off to a good start. Hung teed off from No. 10 and played the back side of the course first. She birdied No. 10 but then bogeyed No. 11, No. 12 and No. 16 to fall to 2-over through eight holes.https://georgiadogs.com/news/2021/9/24/womens-golf-hung-leads-bulldogs-in-first-round-of-mason-rudolph.aspx

“As part of its regular reporting, the company had kept the authorities informed about the nature of the products stored in the warehouse. All of the products in the warehouse were proprietary products approved for use in South Africa by the Health Department and by the Department of Agriculture in terms of Act No.36 of 1947.” The statement, however, recognised that a disaster had occurred. “Many of the water-based products in the warehouse were atomised during the blaze, creating a dense plume of smoke and fumes that caused distress to many people in the neighbouring areas,” the statement read. “Because a significant volume of water was used to extinguish the fire, and due to the delayed response of the spill response cleaning services amid the on-going unrest, the product that was not vapourised and the water from the fire operations overwhelmed the containment system and escaped into the environment. “Water contaminated by a combination of these products, including pesticides, ran down the storm water system, surrounding platform, and down valley lines into the Umhlanga River, damaging plants and marine organisms in its path.” Mark Laing, a South African citizen, took to social media to raise questions about the curious circumstances under which the firm had managed to get an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for its warehouse. “How did UPL get the EIA passed for this facility when there was no retention berm around the facility?” wrote Laing. “One can see this clearly from the drone photos, with a bird’s eye view of the site. The idea of a bund or a berm (either a moat or high walls around the perimeter of the site) is that, if and when there is a fire or a spill of toxic compounds, then the toxic compounds shall be retained within the facility, together with any water sprayed onto the fire to extinguish the fire.” “It is a basic EIA requirement globally for all sites storing toxic compounds,” he added, “So how did they get permission to move into this site without meeting this basic requirement?” Bheki Mbanjwa, the spokesperson for the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government was quoted in the local media refusing to comment on who is to blame for the disaster and what action would be taken against them. “We cannot make statements or take action based on speculation,” Mbanjwa said. “The issues at hand in the UPL matter will be dealt with thoroughly and professionally. Anyone who needs to face consequences will do so whether in terms of rehabilitative responsibility, public health issues or even criminal proceedings.” David Allan, curator of Durban Natural Science Museum , told FairPlanet that although he was not directly involved in the spill investigation, from what he had already observed, the danger to life and the environment has been great. “The short-term effects of the spill have already proved disastrous. And the indications are certainly that we can expect this to extend to the long-term,” Allan told FairPlanet. “Poisons can often result in ‘bioaccumulation’ whereby organisms higher up the food chain get increasingly toxic levels from the material they feed on lower down the food chain,” Allan further stated. “Birds are fairly high up the food chain, indeed some, like the African Fish Eagle (of which a pair has long inhabited the estuary), are actually at the apex of such chains and particularly vulnerable. So we can expect fish-eating birds to perhaps be worst affected and invertebrate feeders perhaps less so. Plant-eating (including seed-eating) birds might be least affected.” Allan said that there is a need for a detailed investigation to establish the knowledge of precisely which chemicals are implicated and the amounts involved, along with specialist input from pesticide experts, in order to formulate appropriate mitigation measures. Rico Euripidou of groundWork - Friends of the Earth South Africa - told FairPlanet that while information was not readily available because the Mumbai-based firm was not being transparent, the information that they obtained showed that the warehouse contained over 5,000 tons of chemicals, the inventory of which included approximately 1600 pesticides, agro-chemicals and agro-products - some of which are classified as highly hazardous and are banned in the EU. “The devastating impact to aquatic life from deadly pesticides and herbicides in the acute phase was almost immediate, approximately five tonnes of aquatic and marine life was collected by the specialist chemical spill response teams, however the threat to the health of nearby communities is more likely to last for many years,” Euripidou said. He added that the conditions under which some of the chemicals were released into the environment are known to lead to the formation of persistent organic chemicals that are known to cause cancers in humans and animals. When asked how such catastrophes could be avoided in the future, Euripidou said that the world should always learn from previous disasters.https://www.fairplanet.org/story/south-africa-chemicals-warehouse-fire-poses-environmental-and-health-risks/
New hospital admissions for COVID-related illness have been declining for nearly three weeks and now fewer than 2,000 people are hospitalized with the virus. In a state with a population of 12.7 million people, COVID-related hospitalizations represent .015 percent of the population. Yet, Governor JB Pritzker’s administration has not said how close we are to lifting the statewide indoor mask mandate that went into effect August 30. The Illinois Department of Public Health monitors several key metrics in determining mitigation levels. Those metrics include vaccination rates, case counts, hospitalization trends and intensive care bed availability. Statewide, 18 percent of in-use ICU beds are occupied by COVID patients. IDPH reports that 8 percent of people in the hospital are being treated for COVID-related illness. In Southern Illinois, ICU space has been a significant issue with IDPH reporting none of nearly 90 ICU beds available in a region that covers more than 20 counties in recent days. Several counties in that region report vaccination numbers at half the rate of Chicago and the rest of the state. Most regions in the Chicago-area have at least 15 percent of their ICU beds available.https://wgntv.com/news/coronavirus/when-will-chicago-or-illinois-lift-its-mask-mandate/
