From Phil Kamlarz, City Manager
Berkeley Public Health
Division's Swine Flu Response
As has been reported widely in the media, the State of California
and the nation are
responding to an influenza virus known as "swine flu."
At this initial stage, cases of
swine flu appear to be concentrated in Mexico City, however, cases
have been reported
in other countries throughout the world. Thankfully, at this stage,
no cases have yet
been reported in Berkeley. The number of identified cases is likely
to rise dramatically in
the next several weeks as the virus spreads and previously undiagnosed
recognized as resulting from this unique strain of flu.
The Public Health Division has been working with federal, state
and other local
jurisdictions to coordinate the response to this outbreak since
first reports last Friday.
Although most of the cases in the United States have been mild,
this is a new strain of
flu that contains elements of swine flu, avian flu and human flu
and existing flu vaccines
cannot provide protection against the new strain.
The federal government has declared a public health emergency,
but the state has not
made a similar declaration, nor have any local jurisdictions.
Information is being shared
with medical providers in Berkeley and the Public Health Division
is coordinating with
Alameda County Health Department on testing procedures. Medical
providers are being
notified regarding testing procedures that are critical to properly
who present with flu symptoms.
We have also been in contact with the Berkeley Unified School
District, and they are
working hard to remind students, staff and parents of the necessary
activities, and are disseminating information in many languages
to ensure everyone is
equally informed. The Superintendent's message to the BUSD community
Swine flu is like any other flu when it comes to preventing infection.
Health agencies are
recommending people take traditional preventive measures. The
City's annual flu-
season campaign- Whack the Flu- is still the best prevention advice.
W: Wash your hands often;
H: Home is where you stay when you are sick;
A: Avoid touching
your eyes, nose and mouth;
C: Cover your coughs and sneezes;
K: Keep your distance from people who are coughing or sneezing.
Because of the apparent nature of transmission of the virus, it
is likely that there will be
a case in the Bay Area. The Public Health Division is working
closely with other
divisions and departments in the City, including Environmental
Health, Senior Services,
Office of Emergency Services and our EMS teams, as well as my
office, on the City's
response. We will keep you informed as local events develop; this
is an extremely
dynamic situation. The federal CDC and the California Department
of Public Health
websites are updated frequently. You can access those, as well
as local updates, by

"Marvin Lipofsky - Living Legend"
a story about our longest-here,

"Fine art glass sculptors,
such as the Dale Chihuly, and his proteges at the Pilchuk Glass
School, line the Pacific Northwest from Washington, all the way
down to Jamex and Einar de la Torre's studios, traversing California's
southernmost border town and a sliver of Mexico. In between lies
the San Francisco Bay Area, one of the richest repositories of
award-winning glass sculpture in the world. Local glass artists
such as Julie Alland, Elin Christopherson, Jaime Guerrero, Clifford
Rainey, David Ruth, Randy Strong, Pamina Traylor, Chuck Vannatta,
and Dana Zed, are but a few. The most exciting of these artists
is Berkeley resident, Marvin Lipofsky, an internationally recognized,
and understated, pioneer of the contemporary glass movement, whose
sculpture and educational efforts over the past 40+ years are
fundamental to establishing glass as a fine art medium.
Originally from Chicago,
Marvin Lipofsky lives in his beautifully modern Berkeley home
studio, where he continues to sculpt."

She picked out two CDs she

Al Jolson was 'the world's

those who don't recognize the name, he was the Elvis of his time.
But he's now regarded contemptuously by African-Americans for
