Hedgehogs Maybe Linked to Salmonella

Hedgehogs Maybe Linked to Salmonella

U.S. government officials reported that pet hedgehogs might be an unseen link connected to a rare strain of salmonella. Typically people contract the illness from tainted food but the government officials report states that contact with an infected critter and their environment can cause the illness. This news was released Thursday by the researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Salmonella Typhimurium is the rare strain of salmonella the CDC found in the outbreak while doing their research. It is so rare that across the United States there are one or two cases reported annually. However, by 2011, the CDC began to see more reports.

Beginning in January 2012, “a total of 20 persons affected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Typhimurium have been reported from eight states,” the CDC said. States affected include Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Oregon and Washington.

At least half of the affected patients are under the age of ten-years-old.

The CDC has received reports of at least one death and four hospitalizations in relation to the illness. “Fourteen out of 15 patients (or their proxies) reported direct or indirect contact between the patient and a …

mCrime Perfectly Positioned to Pounce in 2011

The number of households in the United States that rely solely on wireless telephones continues increasing. More than one in four households had cell phones and no landlines in the first half of 2010, which is an increase of 2.1% since the second half of 2009. And almost one in six households uses cell phones exclusively or almost exclusively despite still having a landline.

What’s most interesting is that more than half of adults between 25 and 29 rely on cell phones alone. This is the first time that adults of any age range have been more likely to go without landlines. This trend indicates that those who have grown up with mobile phones as an accoutrement that went along with their lunch box have never bothered to get a landline. In a few decades, the landline will probably be about as obsolete as the rotary phone is today.

As a result of this shift, software application developers are focusing primarily on mobile devices, with PCs demoted to a secondary consideration.

And whenever there’s a major transition to a new technology, the uncertainty and newness creates the perfect opportunity for scammers to launch attacks. Dave DeWalt, chief executive of McAfee …

Employment Law In The UK

Employment Law In The UK

In the UK, employees are entitled to a certain amount of paid holidays each year. This statutory holiday entitlement is given to people who work full or part time. These statutory holidays are applicable to all employees regardless of length of time with an employer. Time off is worked out on a fairly simple system where you will be entitled to a set number of days of annual leave dependent upon the number of days per week you work. The formula is 5.6 multiplied by the number of days per week you work, so for instance, if you work a five day week, it is 5.6 x 5 = 28, so you would be entitled to 28 days of paid annual leave. If you work 3 days per week, then it would be 5.6 x 3 = 16.8 days of paid holiday annually. This figure includes public / bank holidays.

Your employer must give you a contract of employment which will normally state how much leave you will receive. There is no upper limit on how much leave you can have, this is at the discretion of your employer but it will never be less …
