So, if they were part of a group who wanted to play or had a unique spin on their personality, job, or hobbies, the themed episodes served as the perfect opportunity to apply. The eligibility requirements for Wipe out hopeful participants were pretty standard but still presented the show with some of its greatest contestants, with a minimum age set at 18 years old.
There were even eligibility requirements that dictated what type of contestant the producers of the show were looking for including “fun, strong-willed, outgoing,” and with “a great sense of humor.” Applicants were encouraged to read the fine print on the website's form to also ensure they had proof of United States citizenship and were willing to appear on national television.
While Wipe out was mainly a summer show with casting calls most prominent in the spring and early summer, there were occasions when special episodes were recorded as event programming. Obstacle CoursesIMPORTANT: Flexible cancellation conditions & other measures due to the Coronavirus.

November 3rd 2016Okay, so back somewhere in the mists of time... February 2012 whilst I was at a conference in Oxford, to be exact... the server got hacked and the dude that did it planted lots of nefarious code everywhere. So due to the fact I couldn't really trust any of the code on the server I decided to delete all the files related to the old main site.
Anyway, toucan 't login or register for the main site yet as the admin side of things is taking a lot longer to clean up. Jason “Star_Pilot17” Nunnery (USA) and Liam “Agent_Sandwich” Warwick (United Kingdom), the newest additions to the 2663 members here on the premier anti-gravity racing fan site.
Last week a film crew captured spectacular footage showing sea lions surfing giant waves off Santa Barbara Island, within Channel Islands National Park. The footage, which shows the agile pinnies riding and jumping through the backs of towering swells, was posted to Instagram on Tuesday by Pacific Offshore Expeditions, which hosted the outing.
But Ryan Lawler, who runs Pacific Offshore Expeditions, on Wednesday posted the accompanying Facebook version, to the tune of the famous Surfaces hit, ‘ Wipe out.’ Viewers might find the high-energy music fitting for a scene so remarkable that the crew, including a National Geographic cameraman, was back at Santa Barbara Island on Thursday, hoping to capture more footage.
Dr. Schneider teamed up with the famous proctologist, Dr. Brandon Gregg, to discover the source of the residual fecal matter. “If there is one thing I hate, it is running out of toilet paper on my yacht,” Mr. Ellison told reporters.
Thanks to an exuberant amount of wealth, and looking to solve his yacht problem, Ellison funded a new lab. Once the sticky compound was identified he could then work on a neutralizing agent, so that when passed between two sheets of human skin cells, the poop wouldn’t leave anything behind.
Eliminates charts! This new technology released in pill form, is consumed with every meal and will save time and money for everyone. “I am so happy that pooping at work isn’t bad anymore,” Shelly Anderson, a local travel agent and early adopter, responded to GomerBlog.
“We are starting to see reports that it has eliminated charts and Hershey-squirts entirely.” Schneider claims that this may be a great side effect, but it is too early to be certain. Instead of drinking a fluid that will make you married with your toilet, patients can stop eating a day before the colonoscopy, have a bowel movement, and their colon will be spotless.
The loudest come from the CEO at Charmin, who has pushed a fast food fiber free diet. People we suspect will still wipe out of habit for the first week or so, but when they finally get the confidence they will be TP free.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has basic information about COVID-19 on their website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus. The frequently asked questions (FAQs) on this page are for a public or consumer audience.
FDA staff are working around the clock to support development of medical countermeasures and are providing regulatory advice, guidance, and technical assistance to advance the development and availability of vaccines, therapies, diagnostic tests and other medical devices for use diagnosing, treating, and preventing this novel virus. The FDA continues to monitor the human and animal food supply and take swift action on fraudulent COVID-19 products.
The EUA process is different from FDA approval, clearance, or licensing because the EUA standard may permit authorization based on significantly fewer data than would be required for approval, clearance, or licensing by the FDA. This enables the FDA to authorize the emergency use of medical products that meet the criteria within weeks rather than months to years.
Eras are in effect until the emergency declaration ends but can be revised or revoked as we evaluate the needs during the emergency and new data on the product’s safety and effectiveness, or as products meet the criteria to become approved, cleared, or licensed by the FDA. The CDC recommends washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not available, the CDC recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. A: The CDC recommends wearing masks in public when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
The FDA has authorized the emergency use of face masks, including cloth face coverings, that meet certain criteria for use as source control by the public and health care personnel in accordance with CDC recommendations during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The FDA also regulates other medical devices, including personal protective equipment (PPE) such as surgical masks and N95 respirators.
A: On October 22, 2021, the FDA approved the antiviral drug Very (remdesivir) for use in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age and older and weighing at least 40 kg) for the treatment of COVID-19 requiring hospitalization. In order to ensure continued access to the pediatric population previously covered under the EUA, the FDA revised the EUA for Very to permit the drug’s use by licensed healthcare providers for the treatment of suspected or laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 in hospitalized pediatric patients 3.5 kg to less than 40 kg or hospitalized pediatric patients less than 12 years of age weighing at least 3.5 kg.
For additional information on the authorized use of Very under the EUA, refer to the Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers. Clinical trials assessing the safety and efficacy of Very (remdesivir) in this pediatric patient population are ongoing.
Never take a prescription medicine or drug if it is not prescribed for you by your doctor for your health condition. If someone near you swallows, injects, or breathes a disinfectant, call poison control or a medical professional immediately.
Due to serious safety concerns, including the risk of inhalation toxicity and flammability, the FDA’s temporary policies for alcohol-based hand sanitizers during the COVID-19 public health emergency specifically do not apply to aerosol sprays. A: The best way to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water, advises the CDC.
Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose. If soap and water are not available, CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
The agency lacks verifiable information on the methods being used to prepare hand sanitizer at home and whether they are safe for use on human skin. Swallowing or drinking a hand sanitizer with 1-propanol can result in decreased breathing and heart rate, among other serious symptoms, and can lead to death.
A: The FDA advises consumers to be bewared of websites and stores selling products that claim to prevent, treat, or cure COVID-19. If you have a question about a product sold online that claims to treat, prevent, or cure COVID-19, talk to your health care provider or doctor.
Watch this video and read this Consumer Update to learn how to protect yourself and your family from coronavirus fraud. Please report websites selling products with fraudulent claims about treatment or prevention of COVID-19.
Data shows that when compared to never-smokers, cigarette smoking increases the risk of more severe illness from COVID-19, which could result in hospitalization, the need for intensive care, or even death. Smoking cigarettes can cause inflammation and cell damage throughout the body, and can weaken your immune system, making it less able to fight off disease.
A: E-cigarette use can expose the lungs to toxic chemicals, but whether those exposures increase the risk of COVID-19 or the severity of COVID-19 outcomes is not known. However, many e-cigarette users are current or former smokers, and cigarette smoking increases the risk of respiratory infections, including pneumonia.
Vaccines undergo a rigorous review of laboratory, clinical, and manufacturing data to ensure the safety and effectiveness of these products. And if the benefit-risk assessment is favorable, the product is made available during the public health emergency.
Once a manufacturer submits an EUA request for a COVID-19 vaccine, the FDA then evaluates the request and determines whether the relevant statutory criteria are met, taking into account the totality of the scientific evidence about the vaccine that is available to the agency. Biologics can be composed of sugars, proteins, or nucleic acids or complex combinations of these substances, or may be living entities such as cells and tissues.
Additionally, the FDA is working with other vaccine developers, researchers, and manufacturers to help expedite the development and availability of medical products such as additional vaccines and antibodies, and drugs to prevent or treat COVID-19. Note: The information on clinical trials.gov is provided by the sponsor or principal investigator of a clinical trial.
The listing of a study on the site does not reflect evaluation or endorsement of the trial by the Federal government. For example, blood donors must be in good health and have a normal temperature on the day of donation.
Someone who has symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough, and shortness of breath, is not healthy enough to donate blood. Convalescent plasma from patients who have already recovered from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) may contain antibodies against COVID-19.
The FDA has issued an emergency use authorization for the use of convalescent plasma in hospitalized patients. A: COVID-19 convalescent plasma must only be collected from recovered individuals if they are eligible to donate blood.
Individuals must have fully recovered from COVID-19, with complete resolution of symptoms for at least 14 days before donation of convalescent plasma. Toucan ask your local blood center if there are options to donate convalescent plasma in your area.
The drug approval process takes place within a structured framework that includes collecting clinical data and submitting an application to the FDA. A: The FDA carries out many activities to protect and promote public health during a public health emergency, including helping to accelerate the development and availability of potential treatments, protecting the security of drug supply chains, providing guidance to food and medical device manufacturers, advising developers on clinical trial issues, and keeping the public informed with authoritative health information.
The FDA is committed to supporting the development of new drugs, and the potential repurposing of existing drugs, to address COVID-19 by working with potential drugmakers and sponsors to rapidly move products into clinical trials, helping to ensure that trials are properly designed and safe, and protecting the public from potentially unsafe products. Additionally, during public health emergencies, the FDA may be in certain circumstances authorize use of unapproved drugs or unapproved uses of approved drugs for life-threatening conditions when there are no adequate, approved, and available options and other conditions are met.
Researchers are studying new drugs, and medicines that are already approved for other health conditions, as possible treatments for COVID-19. Additionally, the FDA is working with the National Institutes of Health, drug manufacturers, researchers, and other partners to accelerate the development process for COVID-19 treatments.
FDA’s Sentinel System is being used to monitor the use of drugs, describe the course of illness among hospitalized patients, and evaluate the treatment impact of therapies actively being used under real-world conditions. Note: The information on clinical trials.gov is provided by the sponsor or principal investigator of a clinical trial.
The listing of a study on the site does not reflect evaluation or endorsement of the trial by the Federal government. However, the FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for casirivimab and imdevimab to be administered together for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age or older weighing at least 40 kilograms ) with positive results of direct SARS-CoV-2 viral testing and who are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19.
On March 28, 2021, the FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate to treat adults and adolescents hospitalized with COVID-19 for whom a clinical trial was not available or participation was not feasible. Based on FDA’s continued review of the scientific evidence available, the criteria for an EUA for chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate as outlined in Section 564(c)(2) of the FD&C Act are no longer met.
Patients should not take any form of chloroquine unless it has been prescribed by a licensed health care provider. In that case, a health care professional may treat the bacterial infection with an antibiotic.
You should not take any medicine to treat or prevent COVID-19 unless it has been prescribed to you by your health care provider and acquired from a legitimate source. A recently released research article described the effect of ivermectin on SARS-CoV-2 in a laboratory setting.
These types of laboratory studies are commonly used at an early stage of drug development. Additional testing is needed to determine whether ivermectin might be appropriate to prevent or treat coronavirus or COVID-19.
We have been reaching out to manufacturers as part of our approach to identifying potential disruptions or shortages. We will use all available tools to react swiftly and mitigate the impact to U.S. patients and health care professionals when a potential disruption or shortage is identified.
A: Yes, the FDA has issued Emergency Use Authorizations (Eras) for different types of COVID-19 tests. Some tests allow the patient to collect the sample at home and then send it to a lab for analysis.
The FDA has also authorized tests that allow a person to collect their sample at-home and then mail it to a laboratory for analysis. A diagnostic test can show if you have an active coronavirus infection and should take steps to quarantine or isolate yourself from others.
At this time, researchers do not know if the presence of antibodies means that you are immune to the coronavirus in the future. The FDA is closely monitoring the food supply chain for any shortages in collaboration with industry and our federal and state partners.
The CDC recommends that if you are sick, stay home until you are better and no longer pose a risk of infecting others. A: CDC recommends routine cleaning of all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, countertops, and doorknobs.
Restaurants and retail food establishments are regulated at the state and local level. Viruses like norovirus and hepatitis A that can make people sick through contaminated food usually cause gastrointestinal or stomach illness.
The CDC, FDA, and USDA continue to work with state and local partners to investigate foodborne illness and outbreaks during the COVID-19 pandemic. The FDA’s Coordinated Outbreak Response and Evaluation (CORE) Network manages outbreak response, as well as surveillance and post-response activities related to incidents involving multiple illnesses linked to FDA-regulated human food products.
During this coronavirus outbreak, CORE’s full-time staff will continue to operate to prepare for, coordinate and carry out response activities to incidents of foodborne illnesses. A: There is a very small number of pets around the world reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 after having contact with a person with COVID-19.
Based on the limited information currently available, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people are considered low. Until we learn more about how this virus affects animals, treat pets as you would other human family members to protect them from a potential infection.
Avoid dog parks or public places where many people gather. The FDA does not require approval or clearance of a 510(k), PMA, or any other pre-market submission for devices, including diagnostic tests, intended for animal use.
The decision to test pets should be made collaboratively between local, state, or federal public and animal health officials. Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of pets spreading the virus is considered to be low.
Do not contact your state veterinarians directly: they do not have the client/patient-veterinarian relationship that would allow them to fully understand the situation, and they are also actively involved in other animal disease-related emergencies as well as response to COVID-19. A: We currently don’t fully understand how COVID-19 affects different animal species.
We are aware of a very small number of pets, including dogs and cats, reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 after close contact with people with COVID-19. The virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported in minks on farms in the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Sweden and the United States.
Data from one study suggest that dogs are not as likely to become infected with the virus as cats and ferrets. For any animal that tests positive for SARS-CoV-2 at a private or state laboratory, USDA's National Veterinary Services Laboratories performs additional testing to confirm the infection and posts the results on this page: Cases of SARS-CoV-2 in Animals in the United States.
The FDA is aware of a very small number of pets, including cats, reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. The majority of these cases were linked to close contact with people who tested positive for COVID-19.
At this time, there is no evidence that pets, including cats and dogs, play a role in spreading COVID-19 to people. Never use hand sanitizer, counter-cleaning wipes or other industrial or surface cleaners, as these can penetrate the skin or be licked off and ingested by your pet.
The FDA has not approved any drugs for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of COVID-19 in animals. Similarly, APHID CAB has not licensed any products to treat or prevent COVID-19 in animals.
The public can help safeguard human and animal health by reporting any products claiming to do so to FDA-COVID-19-Fraudulent-Products@fda.hhs.gov or 1-888-INFO-FDA (1-888-463-6332). Dogs can get a respiratory coronavirus, which is part of the complex of viruses and bacteria associated with canine infectious respiratory disease, commonly known as “kennel cough.” While this virus is highly contagious among both domestic and wild dogs, it is not transmitted to other animal species or humans.
Most strains of feline enteric coronavirus, a gastrointestinal form, are fought off by a cat’s immune system without causing disease. However, in a small proportion of these cats, the virus can cause feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), a disease that is almost always fatal.
More information is available in the American Veterinary Medical Association’s fact sheet about coronaviruses in domestic species. A: There is no reason to think that any animals, including shelter or rescue pets, in the United States, might be a source of COVID-19.
