In her first battle since dropping the UFC ladies’s bantamweight title, Holly Holm falls to Valentina Shevchenko by unanimous determination. (Zero:35)
12:36 PM ET
November looks like a very long time in the past, would not it?
That was when Holly Holm dethroned Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, which, as we have now come to appreciate, threw your entire bantamweight division into chaos.
That chaos continued this previous weekend, as Holm suffered her second defeat for the reason that Rousey win — this one by the hands of the gifted (however comparatively unknown) Valentina Shevchenko.
Was there something to study from one more upset within the ladies’s 135-pound division? Let’s take a fast look again at UFC Struggle Evening in Chicago.
Truly, if you concentrate on it, Holm is EXACTLY who we thought she was
You are certain to listen to many claiming the other. After watching Holm lose (badly) to an undersized Shevchenko, the mainstream Monday morning quarterbacks seemingly will chalk her up as a disappointment. “Right here was this bodily imposing former world boxing champion, destined to take the reins of this division. Not. So. A lot.”
That take fully forgets who Holm was one 12 months in the past. In July 2015, nobody was pegging Holm as the way forward for the division. She was coming off a second win within the UFC, however the scouting report wasn’t all that sort. Holm was uncooked, nonetheless studying, a bit hesitant and an entire query mark on the ground — and positively not prepared for Rousey.
The one factor we have been incorrect on was, in fact, the half about Rousey. Because it turned out, Holm was made for Rousey. That hesitancy that prevented her from actually leaping off the web page in her first UFC fights labored wonders in opposition to an uber-aggressive opponent. Mainly, if there may be one solution to not battle Holm, it was how Rousey did it.
So, did that one battle change who Holm was? By way of notion, yeah. Within the cage, the place it issues? By no means. This bantamweight division has been onerous to handicap recently, however within the case of Holm, our authentic assessments have been most likely dead-on. She nonetheless seems to be very uncomfortable on the ground. Her athleticism and tempo are phenomenal, however her technical savvy remains to be creating.
To categorise Holm as some loopy disappointment now, following the primary two-fight skid of her fight sports activities profession, is to primarily overlook (or ignore) every part we have seen from her in addition to one two-round battle in opposition to Rousey again in November. Holm hasn’t actually modified. What we stated and wrote about her did.
And contemplating that, Holm has reached an fascinating spot
To not make this all about Holm, as a result of Shevchenko was sensible Saturday — however Holm’s subsequent transfer would be the extra fascinating of the 2. Shevchenko is in title competition, however she simply misplaced to the present champion, Amanda Nunes, 4 months in the past. We’ll see what occurs, however as of proper now, not many are clamoring for that rematch.
What occurs to Holm, although? Does she merely fall again in line in opposition to a low-ranked opponent? In actuality, that is as dangerous of a transfer as any. Holm’s again shall be in opposition to the wall in her subsequent battle, no matter whom it is in opposition to. So, for that cause, may it truly be finest to take a battle she’s not purported to win?
Stick with me right here. What I am suggesting is Holm, as a result of her expertise stay unpolished, is just not a assured win in opposition to anyone proper now. She practically misplaced to Raquel Pennington in her UFC debut in 2014, a matchup that strongly favored her on paper. Now she’s coming off a loss in opposition to Shevchenko, who ought to most likely be combating at 125 kilos.
If a win is just not assured anyway, why not shoot excessive? Settle for a 140-pound catchweight battle in opposition to Cris “Cyborg” Justino. You wish to speak about gaining again all of the momentum you’ve got misplaced in a single night time? A win in opposition to Justino would do it. Even a aggressive loss in opposition to Justino would do it. Holm can attempt to bunt her method out of this droop — or break it open with a grand slam.
If Holm’s crew needs nothing to do with Justino proper now, that is comprehensible — however what a daring transfer it will be to take that battle. The UFC provided that matchup to her earlier this 12 months, and he or she handed as a result of she needed a rematch in opposition to Miesha Tate. It could not be stunning within the least if the UFC explored that possibility once more.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh places his autograph on a Wolverine fan’s bicep, the primary time the coach says he is signed an individual. Harbaugh is not happy with the way it got here out, and requested for a redo tomorrow. (Zero:55)
eight:26 PM ET
CHICAGO — Jim Harbaugh was at all times going to be the primary attraction on the primary day of Huge Ten media days. And the Michigan coach didn’t disappoint.
On Monday, Harbaugh wore a Michigan hat along with his grey swimsuit as a result of he stated he forgot to get a haircut throughout his whirlwind offseason. He signed a fan’s bicep with a Sharpie, then informed the fan to come back again for an additional attempt Tuesday as a result of he did not like the best way his pores and skin signature seemed.
Of his look in a recent rap video, Harbaugh insisted that solely “uptight white folks” did not prefer it. He even claimed to have written one of many tune’s lyrics (“Roughest group within the B-I-G!). At one other level, Harbaugh used the phrase “meritocracy,” briefly questioned if he had simply invented it, then seemed disillusioned when he realized it already existed.
In brief, Harbaugh was the identical man who dominated offseason headlines along with his quirkiness. But one thing was additionally totally different about him.
At this similar occasion final 12 months, Harbaugh was evasive and even tough at instances throughout his interview periods. He refused to provide many particular solutions to the media horde trying to lap up the story of his return to school soccer. On Monday, although, he was playful and animated, prepared to speak at size about his group and different points.
It is not exhausting to determine what has modified. The Wolverines got here to Chicago final summer time as a curiosity, boasting a famous person coach however not a lot else. Now they’re coming off a 10-win season and returning probably the most skilled groups within the Huge Ten. It will be a stretch to say the manic Michigan man was relaxed, however he actually appeared snug and assured heading into Yr 2.
“We’ve massive hopes,” Harbaugh stated. “We have got massive desires. We have got lofty targets. And all these are achievable.”
Michigan is not the Huge Ten favourite, per se. The league would not do a preseason ballot, and the media surveyed by Cleveland.com overwhelmingly picked Ohio State to win the convention. However the Wolverines have been ranked within the high 5 by a number of prognosticators, and extra money has been wagered on them successful the nationwide title than every other group.
The hype is immense, particularly for a program that hasn’t even shared a Huge Ten title since 2004. Whereas Michigan gamers did not precisely embrace these expectations, they did not shy too distant from them, both.
“We do not actually get caught up an excessive amount of within the rankings, however I positively do assume now we have a swagger,” tight finish Jake Butt stated. “We all know now we have expertise, expertise and management in our coaches and our gamers. The hype inside our group comes from the work we have been placing in.”
Like Butt, cornerback Jourdan Lewis was an All-American final season who determined to return to Ann Arbor moderately than enter the NFL draft. Lewis was so enthusiastic about this 12 months’s prospects that Harbaugh’s grueling four-hour practices — which Lewis described as “like a Titanic film” in 2015 — did not trouble him within the spring.
“After you noticed these 10 wins, we knew we might do one thing particular,” Lewis stated. “I actually wish to win a Huge Ten championship and a nationwide championship.
“It is positively a tradition shift, and you’ll really feel it by way of coach Harbaugh. If you wish to name that swagger, then yeah, he is bringing that again. And we’re making an attempt to get that custom again.”
Rival followers should look skeptically on the Wolverines. They’re 1-7 of their previous eight video games in opposition to Michigan State, a fair worse 1-11 of their previous 12 tries versus Ohio State. They need to go on the highway this season to face each East Division opponents, who will share the stage at media days on Tuesday. The Buckeyes and Spartans deserve extra advantage of the doubt at this level.
“We’re not chasing anyone,” Lewis stated. “We’re simply making an attempt to be [the] greatest we could be. You’ll be able to’t say we’re chasing anyone as a result of all people is Zero-Zero proper now.”
Harbaugh emphasised a number of instances on Monday that Michigan simply wanted to give attention to getting higher day by day. However he additionally did not dispel any grand notions for this 12 months’s group.
“We wish to dream these desires a lot that folks will chortle at us,” he stated. “If they don’t seem to be laughing at us, then we’ve not set excessive sufficient targets.”
Harbaugh was at his amusing greatest on Monday. However few persons are laughing on the Wolverines’ aspirations nowadays.
When Ebola was drawing worldwide headlines and alarming world well being officers, a number of of probably the most well-known U.S. billionaires got here ahead to supply monetary help.
Fb founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his spouse, Dr. Priscilla Chan, donated $25 million to the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention-affiliated nonprofit CDC Basis, Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, gave $100 million to authorities entities just like the State Division and to the World Well being Group, and the Invoice and Melinda Gates Basis donated $50 million to varied teams, together with the United Nations and UNICEF.
However that very same outpouring of money is not taking place with Zika.
To make certain, Ebola’s results had been extra instantly obvious due to its alarming demise toll and the disturbing signs of these contaminated, together with extreme vomiting, diarrhea and exterior bleeding. The 2014 outbreak in western Africa contaminated greater than 28,000 folks – 11,310 of whom died. The circumstances grew to become so dire that world leaders considered Ebola not solely as a public well being menace but in addition considered one of nationwide safety.
Like Ebola, Zika has been stamped with the official WHO designation of a “public well being emergency of worldwide concern.” Some senior well being specialists have stated that Zika’s results could be even worse than Ebola, provided that most individuals who’ve it do not know they’re contaminated. With or with out signs, they will spread the virus during sex to girls who’re pregnant or will be bitten by a mosquito that goes on to contaminate a pregnant lady. These girls can provide beginning to infants with microcephaly, a beginning defect wherein infants have abnormally small heads and attainable brain damage.
“Throughout Ebola, folks had been dying on the streets and there have been very graphic photographs,” says Dr. Judith Monroe, president and CEO of the CDC Basis. “With microcephalic photographs, it isn’t the identical, and there’s a delay of individuals seeing the very devastating results.”
UNICEF referred to as its Zika response “critically underfunded,” including that this was alarming provided that the virus was affecting kids in an growing variety of nations. As of at present, the group has obtained solely $5.eight million of its $24.1 million purpose. Additional, solely $1.1 million of those funds have come from the personal sector. In distinction, the group raised $140 million for its Ebola response, although it had aimed to lift $307 million. Even then, personal donations made up solely 19 % of the entire raised.
The CDC Basis says it has obtained “tens of tens of millions of ” in product donations like contraception tablets and intrauterine contraceptive devices from drug firms however that its monetary donations have been restricted. Up to now, it has raised solely $four.eight million of its $35 million purpose, which at the moment is what they estimate they may want just for the outbreak in Puerto Rico and different U.S. territories. The group, which is impartial however works alongside the CDC to find out its targets, could also be requested by the CDC to lift much more cash relying on how widespread Zika turns into within the continental U.S.
“The money donations have been sluggish,” Monroe acknowledges. “Zika is the sufferer of unhealthy timing coming on the heels of Ebola. There will be some donor fatigue.” The CDC Basis funds would go towards contraception, mosquito management, testing supplies and communications campaigns.
As a result of Congress took its summer season recess with out funding the $1.eight billion President Barack Obama requested for Zika, the funding and adaptability that the muse affords from personal donors and international governments will be significantly very important. Congress won’t be returning to Washington till September, however already Florida well being officers are monitoring circumstances of an infection that will have come from native mosquitoes relatively than by way of journey. Additional, officers say it is attainable that Zika has another mode of transmission.
The biggest donation to the CDC Basis got here from the Gates Basis, which, based on an electronic mail from the group, contributed $three.75 million to a “This Is How We Cease Zika” communications marketing campaign. The marketing campaign contains steering for pregnant girls on insect repellent, holding mosquitoes away from the house and on condom use. The Gates Basis contributed a further $750,000 to the Pan American Well being Group, or PAHO, which can also be going towards prevention and communication efforts, the muse stated within the electronic mail.
WHO/PAHO has stated that $122.1 million is needed to fund the Zika response by way of December 2017, however to this point solely $four million has been raised. Throughout the Ebola outbreak, WHO obtained more than $459 million in contributions between March 2014 till the top of April 2016.
When requested whether or not the Gates Basis would offer extra funding to combat Zika, a spokesperson pointed to how the group had added Zika analysis to its already-existing, long-term research of girls and youngsters. As well as, it has deliberate a multimillion-dollar mosquito management funding challenge within the fall that it hopes will interrupt the transmission not solely of Zika, however of different mosquito-born diseases. The challenge, which can goal huge cities in Brazil and Colombia, would contain infecting mosquitoes with a micro organism referred to as Wolbachia, which analysis suggests can cease viruses from rising inside a mosquito and being transmitted to folks.
Some help and donations have gone to different causes. The Paul G. Allen Basis and Vulcan Inc., each based by Allen, gave $1.5 million to the American Pink Cross to forestall Zika internationally and one other $550,000 grant to assist Chembio Diagnostics Techniques Inc. develop testing for the virus. A Vulcan spokesperson stated the group didn’t have any associated grant announcement info to share at the moment.
The publicity round funds given by well-known donors can bolster others to contribute. After Zuckerberg’s donation to the CDC Basis to combat Ebola, extra personal funds started to pour in to the CDC Basis till the group raised $56 million.
In a Fb post about Zika in February, wherein Zuckerberg referred to as Zika “one of many largest public well being challenges proper now,” he introduced his firm partnered with a nonprofit to combat the virus by elevating consciousness. The Fb media relations workforce didn’t return a number of electronic mail requests for touch upon whether or not Zuckerberg plans to donate financially to combat Zika.
Prevention packages aren’t the one issue that can want funding on account of the devastating results of the Zika virus. Like Ebola, Zika has no remedy or vaccine. Twelve infants have already been born within the U.S. with microcephaly from Zika, and a further 778 pregnant girls who’ve been contaminated with Zika are being monitored in each the continental U.S. and in its territories. The price of caring for infants with microcephaly all through their lives is estimated at $10 million apiece. In Brazil, officers suspect that as many as 8,451 infants have microcephaly from Zika.
“Most of what we’re listening to [from donors] is that they’re fascinated by it,” says Monroe from the CDC Basis. “It is simply that it is taking them longer to consider it than with Ebola.”

New findings on Zika virus have led to new updates, together with an expanded definition of Zika congenital syndrome from the Pan American Well being Group (PAHO) and revised steerage from the US Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention (CDC) on testing pregnant girls and stopping sexual transmission.
In a press launch at this time, the CDC mentioned its two steerage updates are primarily based on rising proof, knowledgeable opinion, and information concerning the dangers linked to different viral infections. It detailed the 2 updates in separate early Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report articles.
Congenital syndrome definition evolves
The up to date definition of Zika congenital syndrome got here from a global assembly of scientists from the Americas, PAHO, and the World Well being Group (WHO) that came about in Pernambuco, Brazil. Many of the new info comes from information and experiences shared by consultants from Brazil and Colombia, the 2 nations hit hardest by the virus.
Increasing the spectrum of congenital Zika an infection has vital implications for surveillance: Techniques initially referred to as for reporting solely microcephaly instances.
Although an uncommon rise in microcephaly instances was what first introduced Zika-related delivery defects to well being officers’ consideration, researchers are studying extra concerning the full extent of injury to fetuses. They’ve warned that the total medical image is not identified but and that delivery defect patterns may range, relying on what trimester the mom was contaminated.
