US COVID-19 vaccine program to start manufacturing by late summer, says US official

first_imgThe Trump administration has helped finance the development of four COVID-19 vaccines so far though its Operation Warp Speed Program, which aims to produce 300 million vaccine doses by the end of 2021.The US government has given grants ranging from several hundred million dollars to over $1 billion to Johnson & Johnson , Moderna Inc, AstraZeneca Plc and Novovax Inc.It also signed a $450 million contract earlier this month with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc to help it supply therapies for patients who are sick with the virus.Clinical trials for therapeutics can produce results in a matter of weeks, making it possible to produce hundreds of thousands of doses by fall, the senior administration official said. Drugmakers partnered with the US government are on track to begin actively manufacturing a vaccine for COVID-19 by the end of the summer, a senior administration official said on Monday.”If you say exactly when will literally the vaccine materials be in production and manufacturing, it is probably four to six weeks away, but we will be actively manufacturing by the end of summer,” the official, who declined to be identified by name, said.He added that the administration is already working with companies to equip and outfit manufacturing facilities and acquire raw materials. “While we think is fair to say that vaccine progress is occurring at warp speed pace, faster than any vaccines have been developed in history, therapeutics are even faster,” the official said.The “slate is not closed” for additional funding agreements and the administration plans to announce more in the future, the official said.The novel coronavirus has infected more than 3 million people in the United States and killed more than 130,000.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Campus prepares for inauguration Friday

first_imgIn preparation for President C.L. Max Nikias’ inauguration on Friday, USC staff, faculty and students are working together to plan events for more than 10,000 expected attendees, university staff said.Take a seat · About 10,000 chairs from Classic Party Rentals blanket campus from Doheny Library to Bovard Auditorium in preparation for President C.L. Max Nikias’ inauguration on Friday. The installation ceremony will begin at 10 a.m., followed by a picnic. – Dan Doperalski | Daily Trojan Preparations for the inauguration began in March when the university announced that Nikias would serve as USC’s 11th president, said Jeff Olsen, managing director of academic events.“We’ve only had 10 [inaugurations] before and that’s pretty rare for a university that is so old,” Olsen said. “[This is] a special experience.”Three committees consisting of about 80 people from Facilities and Management Services, USC Transportation and many other departments are helping to oversee and plan the inauguration, Olsen said. In addition, about 400 people will be involved in facilitating the events Friday.Staff set up about 10,000 chairs on campus earlier this week between Doheny Library and Bovard Auditorium, Olsen said.An integral component of the event will be the approximately 200 hosts — including volunteers from Society 53, Trojan Knights, USC Helenes and various departments — that will be stationed around campus on Friday available to answer any questions that visitors or students might have, Olsen said.“Really, people shouldn’t be able to go about more than 50 feet without bumping into another host,” he said. “[They will] provide a friendly face especially for people who have never been to campus before.”Preparations for Friday are similar to the ways in which the campus prepares for commencement by cleaning up, replanting and working to keep everything neat around campus, Olsen said.In the event that it rains, the inauguration will be held in the Galen Center.“We have to prepare for anything,” Olsen said. “We’ve got it all planned.”Department of Public Safety officers will be on campus Friday to ensure that fire lanes remain clear, but people are still encouraged to attend inauguration even without a reserved seat, Olsen said.“We’re anticipating that more people will show up than we have seats for, but that’s great. That’s what we want,” he said. “There’s space for everyone.”The university invited the entire Trojan Family — students, staff, parents, alumni and members of the community — to attend the inauguration, Olsen said.“It’s that kind of event that students are going to want to look back [on] and say, ‘I was there when it happened,’” Olsen said.last_img read more

10 quotes from former Syracuse RB Prince-Tyson Gulley on Scott Shafer’s firing

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 23, 2015 at 12:24 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Syracuse fired head coach Scott Shafer on Monday morning though he will coach his final game on Saturday against Boston College. Former SU running back Prince-Tyson Gulley played for the Orange from 2010-2014 and spoke with The Daily Orange about Shafer.Here are 10 of Gulley’s quotes from that conversation:“We’ve been discussing a lot of things as alumni. I just feel like this is one of the problems with why Syracuse can never get to the point that we can get, is because every 3-4 years we are switching coach.”“Shafer, they just need to give him a chance to build the program. Me knowing him personally, if he would be able to get enough time just to mold these kids and get a full at least five or six years … he has to create the culture that he wants.”“This is what great coaches do, they look at the team that they already have and they build within. They build from what they have. Most coaches nowadays, they come on in and they clean out.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“What I will say is if the next coach comes in and tries to build from what he already has, then maybe something happens.”“Honestly, the reason why Shafer should’ve been able to stay is because they should let him build that culture. It’s gonna be slow.”“I understand it’s a results business, but results take time in this game. All the big teams, they’ve had rocky roads but they’ve figured it out. We’ve had too many rocky roads and we still haven’t figured it out. What have we learned?”“Someone has to look in-depth of this program, really in-depth into the program. If there was a coaching change, obviously they already made that choice. We need to look deeper.”“To be truthfully honest with you, I love Coach Shafer, but a big name would work out perfect.”“My last season there, we were terrible on offense. I’ve seen the life in this offense.”“Honestly, we got to trust (Director of Athletics Mark Coyle). We’ve got to trust him, that he knows exactly what he’s doing, because it’s already done.” Commentscenter_img Related Stories Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer fired, will coach final game vs. Boston CollegePoll: Should Syracuse have fired Scott Shafer?Potential replacements for Scott Shafer as Syracuse’s head coachStorify: Social media reactions to Syracuse football head coach Scott Shafer’s firingBlum: Scott Shafer needed to be firedlast_img read more

NBA Preview: It’s the Warriors, and then everyone else

first_imgGolden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, center, talks to his players during the second half of an NBA preseason basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018, in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/John Locher)NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will be at Oracle Arena on Tuesday night, handing the Golden State Warriors what will be their third set of championship rings from the last four seasons.A banner will be displayed. Highlights will be shown.ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title LATEST STORIES Island boy makes good View comments Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil The Warriors still have Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Green, plus added All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins — coming off an injury — on a bargain $5.3 million deal. And calling all the shots is coach Steve Kerr, who won five rings as a player and now three more as a coach.“If they don’t win, it’s a failure,” Memphis guard Mike Conley Jr. said. “I know that’s how they feel as well. For us, for the other 29 teams, we’re the underdog. We’re trying to take what they have. It’s a lot easier playing from the underdog perspective than coming in with a lot of expectation.”In this NBA, everybody else is an underdog.That even applies to Houston — which won 65 games last season, has the reigning MVP in James Harden, an elite point guard in Chris Paul who re-signed for $160 million this summer, a deep-pocketed owner in Tilman Fertitta and an always-tinkering GM in Daryl Morey. The Rockets had the Warriors against the ropes in last season’s Western Conference finals, leading that series 3-2 yet falling after Paul was lost to a hamstring injury.“We’ve all got one goal, man,” Harden said. “You’ll keep hearing the same story over and over until I’m not here no more. We’ve got to win a ‘chip. We’ve all got the same goal. We kind of, a little bit, we kind of know what it takes to almost get there. But we haven’t gotten there yet.”ADVERTISEMENT The Warriors are the best team and the Rockets had the best record, but the best player is now in L.A.After 15 seasons in the Eastern Conference, James — who has played in each of the last eight NBA Finals — has moved West. He signed a four-year deal in July with the Lakers, one that makes him the biggest star on the league’s glitziest franchise. He’s teamed up with talented young players like Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, and former rivals like Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson.“I’m a basketball player,” James said. “I play ball. That’s what I do and that’s what I live by. And when I do it at the level I do it at, everything else takes care of itself.”The only certainty in the NBA this season is that James won’t win the East — ending an eight-year run of that, four in Miami and four in Cleveland.Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto (with the newly acquired Kawhi Leonard) are the top candidates to take over as East champions. The Celtics had a Game 7, at home, to get to the NBA Finals last season and lost to James and Cleveland, but now get Gordon Hayward back and a healthy Kyrie Irving again. Miami has been trying to get Jimmy Butler from Minnesota, and if they do — someone will get Butler before the trade deadline — the Heat may be able to get back into East contention.It might be Dirk Nowitzki’s last season in Dallas. Gregg Popovich no longer has Tony Parker or Manu Ginobili with him in San Antonio, and the Spurs (who have been battered by injuries, including one to point guard Dejounte Murray) are no lock to extend their 21-year run of playoff appearances. Sneakerheads will have a big season, because the NBA now says players may wear whatever colors of kicks that they want.There’s plenty of stories.But in the end, it’ll be all about someone finding a way to beat Golden State — or not.“I’ll get back to you when somebody cracks that code,” Wade said. “In this game, the most important thing is health. If they stay healthy, it’s tough to beat them. There’s teams that can, but you’ve got to do it, and you’re going to have to do it four times.” Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plumcenter_img And then the Warriors will have to start all over again.The NBA’s 73rd season starts Tuesday night, beginning a year where LeBron James will play for the Los Angeles Lakers, where Carmelo Anthony will aim to push the Houston Rockets over the top, where Dwyane Wade will take his 16th and final lap around the league.

And that’s my mindset always entering the season.”They will be the overwhelming favorites, with good reason.
