Khawaja hits century before India stop Australia to 2729

first_imgNew Delhi: India staged a decent comeback to restrict Australia to 272 for nine after Usman Khawaja continued with his imperious form by hitting his second hundred of the series in the decisive fifth ODI here Wednesday. Khawaja, who had not scored a century before arriving to India for this series, hit an exact 100 off 106 balls and shared two big partnerships at the top of the order. Australia were placed comfortably at 175 for one in the 33rd over and set for a kill in slog overs, but the script changed for the hosts when Bhuvneshwar Kumar got rid off Khawaja in the last ball of the that over. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football together The visitors added only 97 runs after that in 17 overs, surrendering the advantage, which was well-earned by Khawaja and his top-order colleagues. The left-hander, who hit a century in Ranchi as well, first raised a 76-run stand with Aaron Finch (27) after his skipper elected to bat in hazy and overcast conditions and followed it up with a 99-run partnership with Peter Handscomb (52). Bhuvneshwar took three wickets for 48 runs while Ravindra Jadeja (2/45) and Mohammed Shami (2/57) accounted for two batsmen each. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open The Feroz Shah Kotla wicket did not have much for either spinners or pacers but was far from usual low and slow track as the Australians easily worked the ball around. Khawaja was yet again impressive with his footwork, handling the Indian spinners nicely before being caught at shot extra cover by Kohli off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The left-hander hit 10 fours and two sixes before driving straight to Kohli. Jadeja then got rid of Glenn Maxwell (1) and Shami sent back Handscomb as Australia lost three wickets in the space of 14 balls. The tide turned in India’s favour with Australia managing just 27 runs in overs between 34 and 40. Jadeja, who replaced Yuzvendra Chahal, made a strong case for himself for inclusion in the World Cup squad with figures of 10-0-45-2. Jasprit Bumrah was exceptional in his first eight overs giving just 14 runs but Jhye Richradson (29) spoilt his figures by creaming off four boundaries from his ninth over, providing one last push to Australian innings. It turned out to be a forgettable day for chinaman Kuldeep Yadav who bled 74 runs in his 10 overs but dismissed dangerous Ashton Turner (20) cheaply. Earlier, it was only Mohammed Shami who initially tested Finch with away-going and in-coming balls but once the Australia captain got his eye in, he went about his business without fuss. Khawaja continued with his rich form, striking boundaries easily. His straight boundary, punched on the up, off Bhuvneshwar was a treat to watch.last_img read more

Trump says Iran appears to be culprit for Saudi oil attacks

WASHINGTON/DUBAI — U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said it looked like Iran was behind attacks on oil plants in Saudi Arabia at the weekend that raised fears of a fresh Middle East conflict, but added that he did not want war with anyone.Iran has rejected U.S. charges it was to blame for the attacks which damaged the world’s biggest crude processing plant in Saudi Arabia and triggered the largest jump in crude prices in decades.Several U.S. cabinet officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, have blamed Tehran for the strikes.Iranian President Hassan Rouhani saying the strikes were carried out by “Yemeni people” retaliating for attacks by a Saudi-led military coalition in a war with Yemen’s Houthi movement.Asked by a reporter in the White House if Iran was behind the attacks, Trump said: “It’s certainly looking that way at this moment and we’ll let you know. As soon as we find out definitively we’ll let you know but it does look that way.”Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The attacks cut 5% of world crude oil production.Two sources briefed on state oil company Saudi Aramco’s operations told Reuters it might take months for Saudi oil production to return to normal. Earlier estimates had suggested it could take weeks.Tension in the oil-producing Gulf region has dramatically escalated this year after Trump imposed severe U.S. sanctions on Iran aimed at halting its oil exports altogether.The U.S. leader said he did not want to act hastily.“We have a lot of options but I’m not looking at options right now we want to find definitively who did this. We’re dealing with Saudi Arabia. We’re dealing with the crown prince and other of your neighbors. And we’re all talking about it together. We’ll see what happens,” he said.“I’m somebody that would like not to have war,” Trump said. “No, I don’t want war with anybody but we’re prepared more than anybody.”Remember when Iran shot down a drone, saying knowingly that it was in their “airspace” when, in fact, it was nowhere close. They stuck strongly to that story knowing that it was a very big lie. Now they say that they had nothing to do with the attack on Saudi Arabia. We’ll see?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2019Oil prices surged by as much as 19% after the incidents but later came off their peaks. The intraday jump was the biggest since the 1990-91 Gulf crisis over Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait.The market eased from its peak after Trump announced that he would release U.S. emergency supplies and producers said there were enough stocks stored up worldwide to make up for the shortfall. Prices were around 12% higher by afternoon in the United States.SAUDI SUSPICIONSSaudi Arabia said the attacks were carried out with Iranian weapons, adding that it was capable of responding forcefully and urging U.N. experts to help investigate the raid.In remarks reflecting Saudi suspicions that Tehran was responsible, de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said Iranian threats were not only directed against the kingdom but against the Middle East and the world.While the prince did not directly accuse Tehran, a foreign ministry statement reported him as calling on the international community to condemn whoever was behind the strike.“The kingdom is capable of defending its land and people and responding forcefully to those attacks,” the statement added.Rouhani said the strike was carried out by “Yemeni people.”“Yemeni people are exercising their legitimate right of defense,” Rouhani told a joint news conference with his Russian and Turkish counterparts at a meeting in Ankara.U.N. Yemen envoy Martin Griffiths told the Security Council on Monday it was “not entirely clear” who was behind the strike but he said it had increased the chances of a regional conflict.But U.S. Ambassador to the world body, Kelly Craft, told the Council that emerging information on the attacks “indicates that responsibility lies with Iran” and that there is no evidence the attack came from Yemen.Iran rejected U.S. accusations that it was responsible. “These allegations are condemned as unacceptable and entirely baseless,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in remarks carried by state TV.The kingdom said it would be able to meet oil customers’ demand from its ample storage, although some deliveries had been disrupted. At least 11 supertankers were waiting to load oil cargoes from Saudi ports, ship tracking data showed on Monday.Traders spoke of a long-term price rise as markets absorb the proof that global supply can hit so hard in a single strike.“LOCKED AND LOADED”Trump said on Sunday that the United States was “locked and loaded” to respond to the incident.U.S. Energy Secretary Perry pinned the blame squarely on Iran for “an attack on the global economy and the global energy market.”“The United States wholeheartedly condemns Iran’s attack on Saudi Arabia and we call on other nations to do the same,” he told the U.N. nuclear watchdog IAEA. He added he was confident the oil market “is resilient and will respond positively.”Iran’s Yemeni allies have promised more strikes to come. Houthi military spokesman Yahya Sarea said the group carried out Saturday’s pre-dawn attack with drones, including some powered by jet engines.“We assure the Saudi regime that our long arm can reach any place we choose and at the time of our choosing,” Sarea tweeted. “We warn companies and foreigners against being near the plants that we struck because they are still in our sights.”U.S. officials say they believe that the attacks came from the opposite direction, possibly from Iran itself rather than Yemen, and may have involved cruise missiles. Wherever the attacks were launched, however, they believe Iran is to blame.Saudi Arabia and Iran have been enemies for decades and are fighting a number of proxy wars, including in Yemen where Saudi forces have been fighting against the Houthis for four years.THREATSThe attacks have raised questions about how the kingdom, one of the world’s top spenders on weaponry, much of it supplied by U.S. companies, was unable to protect oil plants from attack.Appearing to sense a commercial opening, President Vladimir Putin said Russia was ready to help Saudi Arabia by providing Russian-made air defense systems, which he said would protect any Saudi infrastructure.For months, Iranian officials have issued veiled threats, saying that if Tehran is blocked from exporting oil, other countries will not be able to do so either. However, Iran has denied a role in specific attacks, including bombings of tankers in the Gulf and previous strikes claimed by the Houthis.Russia and China said it was wrong to jump to conclusions about who was to blame for the attack on Saudi Arabia.Washington has imposed its “maximum pressure” strategy on Iran since last year when Trump quit an international deal that gave Tehran access to world trade in return for nuclear curbs.U.S. allies in Europe oppose Trump’s strategy, arguing that it provides no clear mechanism to defuse tensions, creating a risk that the foes could stumble into war.Trump has said his goal is to force Iran to negotiate a tougher agreement and has left open the possibility of talks with Rouhani at an upcoming U.N. meeting. Iran says there can be no talks until Washington lifts sanctions. read more

Annan to urge coordinated approach in helping to stabilize West Africa aide

With the Secretary-General set to present a report on the issue tomorrow, his Special Representative for the region, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, told a briefing that Mr. Annan would highlight how the proliferation of small arms as well as the use of child soldiers and mercenaries “contribute to the suffering of the population and the deterioration of the economy and social and physical infrastructure” in West Africa.Mr. Annan is also expected to stress the importance of a harmonized UN approach to this problem “instead of each agency going its own way,” Mr. Ould-Abdallah said.Asked to name key hotspots in the region, he cited the border between Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, and said the frontier area between Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire also faces a “serious” problem of instability. read more

Bye-bye Gran.🙏🏻💕— Julia Sawalha (@JuliaSawalha1) December 29, 2018 Dame June met her husband Tim Aitchison in the 1950s. The pair went on to have a daughter, Suzy, who followed in her mother’s footsteps and became an actress.She called her autobiography …and June Whitfield, in a nod to fact that she always got second billing.”The greatest of show business mysteries,” Denis Norden once said, “was how anyone could contemplate doing a comedy show without June Whitfield.”Whitfield made her first stage appearance at the age of three. Her first big break came on radio when she appeared in Take It From Here before she made her first appearance in 1968 on Terry Scott’s sketch show Scott On. The two had a long partnership on screen, with five years as a married couple in Happily Ever After and eight more years in Terry And June.Shane Allen, controller of BBC Comedy, said: “June Whitfield was the North Star of British”She was the go-to female comedy performer of her generation and was always in demand from the cream of British comedy.” So very sad.

The annual Perseids meteor shower reaches its peak

first_imgAstronomy buffs are gearing up for the annual Perseids meteor shower, which has been ramping up for the last few weeks and should peak late on Sunday and into early Monday morning. If you’re outside and away from the bright lights of the city, you’ll see as many as 70 space rocks per hour streaking through the skies.The Perseids show up every year in the second half of July, and continue through the end of August with a peak in activity around the middle. The source of the Perseids is the dust trail from the periodic comet Swift-Tuttle, which got its name from co-discoverers Lewis Swift and Horace Parnell Tuttle in 1862. This 26km object orbits the sun once every 133 years, but the Earth smacks into its leftover particulates every year. People have been noting the regularity of the Perseids shower for about 2000 years, with early records originating in the far east.Most of the meteors blazing a path across the sky are very small — usually less than an inch across. However, they’re smacking into the atmosphere at about 134,000 mph. That causes them the light up visibly as they are incinerated. While you’re marveling from the ground, satellite operators will be spinning sensitive parts of orbiting devices away from the origin of the meteors. Even a small speck of dust traveling at such incredible speeds could damage sensitive equipment.If you want to take in the sights, the best time to view the Perseids is about 1 AM Monday morning. If that’s not feasible, the days before and after should be reasonably active as well.last_img read more

Mica scandal Families living in crumbling homes as redress scheme awaits sign

first_img Short URL 19,453 Views Mica scandal: Families living in ‘crumbling homes’ as redress scheme awaits sign off It is understood the roll out of the redress scheme is in its final stages. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article One of the homes impacted by the mica scandal Image: HD McKay Consulting Engineers 9 Comments One of the homes impacted by the mica scandal Sunday 3 Mar 2019, 7:00 AMcenter_img https://jrnl.ie/4516479 Mar 3rd 2019, 7:00 AM By Christina Finn INTENSE TALKS HAVE been taking place between the Housing Department and Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in recent weeks to determine what level of funding can be given to the mica redress scheme.It emerged a number of years ago that the mineral muscovite mica was present in many concrete blocks used to build a large number of properties in Donegal – and some in Mayo.Homeowners only discovered the mica contamination when large cracks began to appear inside and outside their homes.Lots of the properties deteriorated very quickly, with many already condemned. Some owners have been forced to move to rental accommodation while still paying off their mortgage.For close to 10 years, homeowners impacted by the mica housing scandal have campaigned for their homes to be repaired.It was estimated that as many as 4,800 dwellings in Donegal and 345 homes in Mayo are affected.Redress schemeLast year, Cabinet approved a new redress scheme to help homeowners repair the damage, but little has happened since.Families have said further damage to their houses has become apparent following extreme weather. Campaigners are further concerned that the cost overruns of the National Children’s Hospital could impact on the level of financial help they might receive. Fianna Fáil’s Charlie McConalogue raised the lack of progress with Minister Eoghan Murphy this week. He said in many cases, peoples’ homes “are crumbling around them”.“This is something the government promised as far back as the budget last year. The delays we have seen over the past number of months are simply unacceptable. The government really needs to get its act together on this and publish this scheme immediately so that we can see houses being remedied and families taken out of the distress and misery they have been experiencing as a result of having this unfortunate situation,” he said.Murphy said he appreciated the deputy’s patience and the patience of those impacted. He said it will be brought to Cabinet as a priority, once all is agreed.It is understood that while the roll out of the scheme is in its final stages, discussions about the level of money required is still ongoing with the Finance Department. The housing minister is understood to be awaiting final sign-off on the deal by DEPR. “We have agreement in principle. We made that agreement at Cabinet level at the budget. My Department and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform have been in intense discussions since then and in recent weeks over what that scheme would look like, and that is almost complete, and also the amount of funding that could be put to it in the initial years. That work is almost there. When it is there, it will be brought to Cabinet as a priority,” he said.  Share9 Tweet Email5 Image: HD McKay Consulting Engineerslast_img read more

BJP trying to negatively influence Bengals rich culture Mamata

first_imgAgarpara: Rebutting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tall claims that BJP alone will get 300 seats in the Lok Sabha, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee said it is certain that the saffron party is not coming to power in Delhi. She also added that the saffron party was trying to destroy Bengal’s rich cultural heritage.While addressing a mammoth rally at Agarpara in North 24-Parganas on Wednesday afternoon, she said: “From where will they get so many seats? In Uttar Pradesh, BJP will not get more than 13 to 17 seats, while in Maharashtra and Rajasthan the number of seats will be equally less. In Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Odisha they will not get seats and in Bengal, they will get a big zero. So, from where will the seats come Modi babu.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIt may be recalled that while addressing a rally at Taki, the Prime Minister had said: “BJP alone will get 300 seats and the NDA partners will increase their seats.” Banerjee said in a few days, the general elections will come to an end, but Modi has not uttered a single word on note ban, the suicide of farmers or why he has failed to give jobs to the people. “In 2014, he had said he would bring back black money deposited in banks outside India and deposit Rs 15 lakh in the bank account of everyone. It is a big hoax. He had announced that two crore people will get jobs which amount to 10 crore people in five years. Not only has that not happened, but around 12,000 farmers have committed suicide in the past five years. He has not said a word on his failure and has come in Bengal to incite one religion against the other,” she said. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe Trinamool supremo also alleged that BJP is trying to negatively impact Bengal’s great tradition and culture. “BJP is trying to force us to forget Rabindranath. This is their game plan,” she said, adding that CPI(M) had tried this many years ago. “They imported Marx and Lenin and dropped ‘Sahaj Path’ of Tagore from the syllabus,” Banerjee added. She had earlier garlanded a portrait of Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar kept on the dais. Coming down heavily on Amit Shah, she said: “In Delhi, Shah had alleged that Trinamool supporters had planned to malign him. Who is he? Why would Trinamool try to malign him? They have destroyed the statue of Vidyasagar and are so shameless that they are now putting the blame on us.” Alleging that BJP supporters had vandalised the half-bust of Vidyasagar at Vidyasagar College on Tuesday, Banerjee said: “They have brought goons from Rajasthan, Jharkhand and different districts in Bengal. They have been put up in different hotels and lodges in and around the city.” Urging people to vote for party candidate Saugata Roy, she said: “Saugata da is a veteran Parliamentarian. He raises all important issues on the floor of the House.”last_img read more

Duplicacy File Backup solution

first_imgDuplicacy File Backup solution by Martin Brinkmann on August 04, 2016 in Software – Last Update: October 04, 2016 – 13 commentsDuplicacy is a file backup solution for Windows and Mac devices that supports local and remote backup storage locations among other things.System backups are great, but they are often not well suited for taking into account files that are modified multiple times in between backup periods.If you create new backups once a day or week, modifications to files that change more often are not taken into account. The same is true for files that are newly created in directories.That’s where file level backups come into play. They may run more frequently than system backups because they target only specific folders or files, and not the whole system. This results in more frequent backups to take changes into account.Update: Duplicacy is no longer free. A personal license is available for $1 per month, commercial licenses for $3 per user.DuplicacyDuplicacy is a free for personal use open-source file backup solution for Windows and Mac. The program installs quickly and displays the backup setup screen on start which you use to configure backup jobs.This involves selecting a root folder on the local hard drive that you want to back up (called repository). Then you select the target directory for the backup (storage), which can either be local, network or cloud-based.Duplicacy supports SFTP, Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Amazon S3 and Backblaze B2 as options besides local disk.Backups runs hourly by default on all days. You may change the frequency and the days you want backup jobs to run, for instance every 30 minutes on weekdays, or every six hours on Monday and Friday.Snapshot pruning is enabled by default. The program deletes snapshots that are older than 180 days by default, but you may set a different time period or even disable pruning completely.Backups may be encrypted with a password. This encrypts not only file contents but also file paths, sizes and other information.The program uses incremental backups to keep the required storage requirements for the backup jobs as low as possible. It supports deduplication to further that goal.Restore is built right into the GUI, but also supported using the command line.Experienced users may use commands for better control and additional features that the gui version does not offer.Some of the options provided are to backup to a different storage location, use hash file comparison instead of size and timestamp comparison, or assign a tag to a backup for identification purposes.A guide on Github lists commands and the options they ship with.Closing WordsDuplicacy is a basic file level backup program that ships with interesting under the hood options. Some features that are missing are options to manage multiple backup jobs using the graphical user interface, compression settings, or options to control network transfers.Now You: My favorite backup program is Veeam currently.

US police probe motive after deadly LA airport shooting

first_imgLOS ANGELES, California – A gunman opened fire with an assault rifle at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Friday, killing a security agent, creating scenes of chaos and causing widespread flight disruptions.Panicked travelers scrambled to escape after the shooter, named as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia, pulled out the gun and shot his way through a security checkpoint before being stopped in an exchange of fire with police.The victim was the first employee of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to be killed in the line of duty since the TSA was set up in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.Seven people were injured, but the lone gunman had lots more ammunition on him when he was arrested, said Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.“There were more than 100 more rounds that could have literally killed everybody in that terminal today,” he said, praising airport police. “If it were not for their actions, there could have been a lot more damage,” he said.The motive for the shooting was unclear, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it could not rule out terrorism. The gunman was reported to be in critical condition in hospital.The shooter opened fire shortly after 9 a.m. in a crowded terminal of LAX, the country’s third-biggest air transport hub.He “came into Terminal Three, pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and began to open fire,” said LAX police chief Patrick Gannon.“He proceeded up into the screening area … and continued shooting,” he said.TV footage showed people diving to the floor at the sound of gunfire and scrambling to escape the terminal.Police chased the gunman to a Burger King restaurant where they “engaged him in gunfire … and were able to successfully take him into custody.”The TSA, which employs screeners and guards at airports, confirmed one of its employees had died. “Multiple Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) were shot, one fatally,” said a TSA statement emailed to AFP.Later, the FBI named the shooter as Ciancia, saying he was an L.A. resident, giving no further details.An NBC television report suggested Ciancia had “strong anti-government views,” and may have had some link to the TSA and targeted TSA agents as his victims.One eyewitness recounted the shooter dressed in grayish-green clothing with an assault rifle opening fire.Brian Adamick, 43, said he saw a wounded TSA worker, with a bloodied ankle, board a shuttle bus helping passengers escape.“It looked like it was straight out of the movies,” he said.In all some 750 flights were disrupted after the Federal Aviation Administration issued a national ground-stop.Nearly 50 were diverted to other airports, and the rest either held on the ground at LAX or at their originating airport, said Gina Marie Lindsey, head of Los Angeles World Airports.Although there was no indication of other people being involved in the attack, the FBI said it could not rule out terrorism.“It would be premature to comment on a motivation at this time and joint investigators have neither ruled out terrorism, nor ruled it in,” said an FBI statement.In Washington, President Barack Obama was kept up-to-date on the shooting. “Obviously, we’ve been monitoring it and we’re concerned about it,” Obama said.This being Los Angeles, a number of celebrities were caught up in the action.Hit TV show “Mad Men” was filming at LAX, next door in Terminal Four, a crew member tweeted, while actor James Franco posted a “selfie” picture of himself on a plane stopped on the tarmac by the incident.“Some s** tbag shot up the place,” he wrote in the first of a series of tweets, ending some five hours later with a more relieved message: “WE’RE OUT! – everyone was calm.” Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

NIH Major study finds earlier HIV treatment improves health

first_img Comments   Share   The results, once final, will need careful scrutiny to see if they apply to people with the highest CD4 counts, cautioned Dr. Jay Levy of the University of California, San Francisco, who wasn’t involved in the new study.“I’m still concerned about putting everyone on therapy,” Levy said.But Fauci said the study offers “another reason why we should be more aggressive” in getting people tested and treated. “It tells you that you will benefit from therapy at whatever your CD4 count is,” he added.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Men’s health affects baby’s health too New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories The findings are preliminary, but the NIH found them so compelling that it stopped the study a year early, so that all the participants could receive medication as researchers continue to track their health.How soon should treatment begin?“The sooner the better,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which funded the work.Current U.S. guidelines already recommend early treatment for HIV, but the findings could alter care recommendations in other countries.HIV may not trigger symptoms for years, raising the question of how soon after diagnosis patients should begin taking expensive medications that may cause side effects. Previous studies have made clear that early treatment dramatically lowers the chances that someone with HIV spreads the virus to a sexual partner. But there was less evidence that the HIV patient’s own health would benefit by starting early.The START trial — Strategic Timing of AntiRetroviral Treatment — sought proof by randomly assigning still healthy patients either to receive early therapy or to delay therapy until their CD4 cells, a key sign of immune system health, dropped into a worry zone. How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Top Stories Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober While the U.S. guidelines back treatment regardless of patients’ CD4 counts, the World Health Organization’s guidelines recommend that HIV-infected people begin treatment when their CD4 levels fall below normal, to 500 or below. But that doesn’t happen in many poor countries, where often people are sicker before they receive treatment and global funding to expand care is tight.Even in the U.S., many people don’t seek or stick with early care: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that only about 30 percent of Americans with HIV have the virus under control.The START trial enrolled 4,685 people in 35 countries, all of whom had CD4 counts in the healthy range — above 500 — and had never taken anti-HIV medication. Researchers tracked deaths, the development of AIDS-related illnesses and the development of serious non-AIDS events such as cancer, heart disease and kidney or liver disease.Over about three years, the risk of serious illness or death was reduced by 53 percent in the early treatment group, NIH said.The actual numbers of bad outcomes in both groups were very low, given that patients were so healthy when they enrolled in the study: 41 cases in the early-treatment group compared with 86 in the group that delayed treatment until their CD4 count dropped to near 350.
