Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With the approach of flu season, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is recommending all Ohioans 6 months and older get a flu shot as soon as possible. The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging vaccination by the end of October.Flu activity traditionally begins to increase in October and can last as late as May, with cases typically peaking between December and February. CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the best protection against seasonal flu viruses. Flu vaccines have been updated this year to better match circulating flu viruses.“Flu vaccination can help keep you from getting sick, missing work or school, and prevent flu-related hospitalization and death,” said Sietske de Fijter, State Epidemiologist and Chief, Bureau of Infectious Diseases. “Getting your flu shot helps protect all, including older adults, very young children, pregnant women, and people with certain long-term health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications.” Symptoms of influenza can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.“If you are sick with the flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading it to others,” said de Fijter.Although most people fully recover from the flu, some experience severe illness like pneumonia and respiratory failure, and the flu can sometimes be fatal. People who think that they may have the flu and are pregnant, have an underlying medical condition, or who are extremely ill should contact their healthcare provider immediately.Flu vaccines are offered by many doctor’s offices, clinics, health departments, pharmacies and college health centers, as well as by many employers and some schools. While vaccination provides the greatest protection against the flu, other effective ways to avoid getting or spreading it include: washing hands frequently or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer; covering coughs and sneezes with tissues or coughing or sneezing into elbows; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when sick and until fever-free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication.CDC recommends that healthcare providers administer prescription antiviral medication as a second line of defense as soon as possible to patients with confirmed or suspected flu who are hospitalized, have severe illness, or may be at higher risk for flu complications.More information about influenza and flu activity in Ohio is available at www.flu.ohio.gov.

Facebook Pose is a visual, musical and poetic feast of personality. One of Ryan Murphy’s many television offspring, it tells the tale of the New York City drag scene in the late ’80s. The AIDS epidemic lingers as we watch the poor and the privileged intersect behind closed doors with a genuine, un-exploitative eye. Pose also happens to feature the largest LBGTQ ensemble ever gathered for a scripted series, with Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson and Indya Moore, all trans women of colour, leading the way. Each episode packs an emotional punch.9.A VERY ENGLISH SCANDALForget Mary Poppins. The greatest English comeback of the year has been Hugh Grant’s. First, with the great Paddington 2. And here, where he plays the two-faced Jeremy Thorpe, a British MP who, in 1979, was accused of conspiring to murder his former lover, Norman Scott (a similarly two-faced Ben Whishaw), when homosexuality was still illegal. The witty, melodramatic three-episode miniseries follows what transpired after Scott threatened to expose Thorpe post-break-up. The entire affair is a promising sign of where Grant’s resuscitated career could take him, transforming his once indelible rom-commy charm into something much scarier. Advertisement There have never been more options on television. It’s worth keeping this in mind while reading from the end-of-year bemoaning that this year’s crop of series has been a sorry display. Truth be told: there’s simply too much to make a call. Any concept of “catching up” was left behind in 2017. From animation to drama to even procedural, the options are limitless as cable and streaming networks continue to duke it out in not only the battle for the best but the most.While that certainly leaves a lot of space for a lot of trash (of which we saw plenty this year), there have also been dozens of gems. Here’s a smattering of the best:HONOURABLE MENTION: BARRY (CRAVE)It’s long been said that the greatest comic talents have the deepest reserves of drama. In Barry, Bill Hader plays a depressed assassin who follows his latest target into an acting class, suddenly propelling him into dreams of a new life as a (very bad) actor. That is, if the mob who hired him lets him go. It’s a delicious new era for Hader, who captures a man seemingly devoid of emotion, so desensitized to the crime around him.10.POSE (FX CANADA) Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Sharp Objects, Killing Eve, Forever.

2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff 12 Photos 0 52 Photos Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 18 Photos Shanghai Motor Show 2019 Tags 10 Photos 71 Photos 2017 Karma Revero looks like a Fisker, but much improved underneath 49 Photos Share your voice Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. Post a comment 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering More From Roadshow 68 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle 69 Photos Share your voice 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Our first look at the “all-new” Revero. Karma Automotive Karma Automotive might have been quiet for some time, but at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show, the California-based automaker will have plenty to talk about. Karma on Thursday revealed a teaser photo showing the 2020 Revero, the second generation of the car that was derived from the Fisker Karma. The car debuts at Auto Shanghai in early April.The 2020 Karma Revero will apparently be “faster, smarter” than the outgoing Revero, and the company also promises it will be “even more stunning in design.” It’s not clear from the shadowy teaser photo exactly how the car’s design will change, but we’re eager to see the apparently “all-new” model. Interested parties will be able to get behind the wheel soon, too, as Karma says the 2020 Revero will be offered to buy or lease in the second half of this year.Powertrain and other mechanical specs for the new car remain a mystery. The existing, first-generation Karma Revero is a plug-in hybrid that Karma says has 50 miles of all-electric range, 403 horsepower and 981 pound-feet of torque.The introduction of the new Revero is the final pillar in what Karma is calling its “Shanghai Big Three.” The company will also use the Chinese show to reveal an all-electric concept car called the Vision, as well as a concept designed with famed design house Pininfarina.Today’s teaser comes with the news that Karma has also invested $7.5 million to upgrade its powertrain research and development facilities at its headquarters in Irvine, California. New tech, including test cells and dynamometers for both gas engines and electric motors, will allow Karma to further its development of “electric motors, generators and range-extended powertrains” in-house, instead of contracting that work to outside companies. It’s a signal that Karma is serious about developing more new models going forward. 26 Photos 3 Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 81 Photos 48 Photos 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch More From Roadshow Car Industry Comments Hybrids Luxury cars Sedans,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. Tags 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value

Sye Raa is expected to earn Rs 30 crore more than that of the megastar’s previous out.But is that a huge amount for Sye Raa? Absolutely not! Ram Charan is shelling of nearly Rs 150 crore on its ensemble cast, extravagant sets and other stuff related to its production. The movie needs to get more money from its theatrical rights. But Ram Charan is not intended to earn profits from this project.Ram Charan has recently made it at the teaser launch of the Sye Raa. He had said, “Sye Raa is dad’s dream project. Hence we aren’t compromising in terms of the budget. We are making the film in a grand manner. If we get profits, we consider it as a Bonus but even if we don’t get, it will still be happy for us.”All Ram Charan wants is to fulfil the wish of his father Chiranjeevi, who dreamt of appearing in a costume drama. The producer had added, “When dad watched Magadheera, he said that he was jealous of me as I got to do a costume drama for my second film. My dad did not do any of such film in his career and this is his first film. So, we are not compromising in terms of budget.”
