Tennessee Department of Health working to protect Tennesseans from emerging diseases

 

Tennessee Department of Health - TDOHNashville, TN – Protecting people from infectious diseases is a vital part of the mission of the Tennessee Department of Health, and TDH works around the clock to prepare for, respond to and protect people in the state from diseases both familiar and new to Tennessee. TDH has plans in place to respond to emerging diseases such as Ebola Virus Disease that are now spreading outside the U.S. as well as future health threats that may develop.

“‘’Are we safe? What is the risk? What should I do?’ These are some of the questions we all ask when we hear about unfamiliar and sometimes dangerous communicable diseases,” said TDH Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH.

This graphic shows the life cycle of the ebolavirus. Bats are strongly implicated as both reservoirs and hosts for the ebolavirus. Of the five identified ebolavirus subtypes, four are capable of human-to-human transmission. Initial infections in humans result from contact with an infected bat or other wild animal. Strict isolation of infected patients is essential to reduce onward ebolavirus transmission. (CDC)

Reclaiming Spaces: One Farmers Market at a Time

 

By Lindsay Buchannan of the U.S. Department of Agriculture

USDA - U.S. Department of AgricultureWashington, DC – Consumer demand for local food is driving the expansion of farmers markets into places of all shapes, sizes, and locations. Ferry terminals, train depots, grain mills and shipping containers all can, and are, housing farmers markets across the country.

There are 8,268 markets listed in the USDA’s National Farmers Market Directory, a 76 percent increase since 2008. Managed by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service, the directory listings reflect continued growth and demand in every region of the country. Today farmers markets are as diverse as the communities they serve and can be found in unique rural and urban spaces across the country.

The Ferry Building dominated the busy port as a main boat terminus. As cars and highways became more popular, the terminal went into disrepair. Now, farmers and vendors have revived the space, making the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market one of California’s most famous farmers markets. (Photo courtesy of Jim Forest.)

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The few economic releases were generally positive and reports on corporate earnings were mostly on the high side of expectations, but the stock market seemed to pay little attention. Geopolitical tensions (Russia/Ukraine, Iraq, Israel/Hamas) and the ongoing Fed policy debate set market participants on edge.

Geopolitical concerns helped push global bond yields sharply lower. The U.S. Treasury note yield fell below 2.40%.

Crime Scenes Get Teens Excited About Learning

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Getting kids to school simply requires a bus and a semi-awake child. Getting kids to actually look forward to learning is a much bigger challenge.

How many times has your child asked you why they need to learn Algebra or Chemistry? How many times have you tried to relate it to something interesting but came up short? Tying school learning objectives to the interests of teens is an age-old challenge, but always worth the effort.
