(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Earlier this week, Clemson benched quarterback Kelly Bryant in favor of true freshman QB Trevor Lawrence. That decision by Dabo Swinney is under heavy scrutiny on Saturday afternoon after Lawrence left the game with an injury.Bryant could have hopped in as the team’s backup, but the senior decided to announce his transfer rather than sit on the sideline for the remainder of his career. He was afforded that opportunity by the new redshirt rule that allows players to redshirt if they’ve played fewer than four games in a season.With Clemson trailing Syracuse and Trevor Lawrence out of the game, many are calling for Kelly Bryant to come back to the program. But can he?According to Dennis Dodd, the answer is yes.Am told IF Kelly Bryant hasn’t withdrawn and IF he wanted to come back, there is a reinstatement process where he could return to Clemson.— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) September 29, 2018Now the question becomes, would he want to come back?We’ll have to wait and see. Meanwhile, Clemson trails 23-20 with just under nine minutes left in the game.last_img read more

UNICEF appeals for funds to fight severe cholera outbreak in Angola

With 1,000 people already dead from cholera in Angola, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is appealing for $1 million to fight the most severe outbreak of the disease there since 1988.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the ongoing rainy season has made it likely that the epidemic will spread further despite efforts by UNICEF, WHO, the Angolan Government and other partners to get care and medication to the sick.Cholera, an acute intestinal disease caused by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, causes copious, painless, watery diarrhoea that can quickly lead to severe dehydration and death if treatment, including rehydration, is not given promptly. Vomiting also occurs in most patients. Apart from significant human suffering, the disease disrupts social and economic structures and puts tremendous strain on already precarious national health systems. Seasonal factors, such as the rainy season, contribute to the disease’s spread. UNICEF has distributed hundreds of thousands of sachets of oral rehydration salts as well as thousands of kilos of calcium hypochlorite to treat water at source for distribution to communities, benefiting over 200,000 people daily. It has also supplied and installed many water tanks, bladders and jerry cans in the capital, Luanda, as well as water treatment kits to supply treated water for tens of thousands of households. The agency is continuing to distribute soap, boots, gloves, aprons, first aid kits, essential drugs and calcium hypochlorite in affected provinces, and providing technical assistance, tents and basic equipment for establishing cholera control treatment centres. It is also training social mobilizers and disseminating social communication materials such as training manuals, posters, leaflets and CDs, to affected communities. read more
