Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi in the lungs that causes coughing. Symptoms include coughing up sputum, shortness of breath, chest pain. Bronchitis can be chronic. Acute bronchitis has a cough that lasts around three weeks, is known as a chest cold. In more than 90% of cases the cause is a viral infection; these viruses may be spread by direct contact. A small number of cases are caused by a bacterial infection such as Mycoplasma pneumoniae or Bordetella pertussis. Risk factors include exposure to tobacco smoke and other air pollution. Treatment of acute bronchitis involves rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to help with the fever. Chronic bronchitis is defined as a productive cough – one that produces sputum – that lasts for three months or more per year for at least two years. Many people with chronic bronchitis have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Tobacco smoking is the most common cause, with a number of other factors such as air pollution and genetics playing a smaller role.

Treatments include quitting smoking, vaccinations and inhaled bronchodilators and steroids. Some people may benefit from long-term oxygen therapy. Acute bronchitis is one of the most common diseases. About 5% of adults are affected and about 6% of children have at least one episode a year. Acute bronchitis is the most common type of bronchitis. In the United States, in 2016, 8.6 million people were diagnosed with chronic bronchitis. Acute bronchitis known as a chest cold, is short term inflammation of the bronchi of the lungs; the most common symptom is a cough, that may not produce sputum. Other symptoms may include coughing up mucus, shortness of breath and chest discomfort. Fever when present is mild; the infection may last from a few to ten days. The cough may persist for several weeks afterwards, with the total duration of symptoms around three weeks. Symptoms may last for up to six weeks. In more than 90% of cases, the cause is a viral infection; these viruses may spread by direct contact. Risk factors include exposure to tobacco smoke and other air pollutants.

A small number of cases are due to bacteria such as Mycoplasma pneumoniae or Bordetella pertussis. Diagnosis is based on a person's signs and symptoms; the color of the sputum does not indicate if the infection is bacterial. Determining the underlying organism is not required. Other causes of similar symptoms include asthma, bronchiolitis, COPD. A chest X-ray may be useful to detect pneumonia. Another common sign of bronchitis is a cough. If the cough lasts for longer than a month, it may become chronic bronchitis. In addition, a fever may be present. Acute bronchitis is caused by a viral infection; these infections are rhinovirus, parainfluenza, or influenza. No specific testing is needed in order to diagnose acute bronchitis. One form of prevention is to avoid smoking and other lung irritants. Frequent hand washing may be protective. Treatment for acute bronchitis involves rest, NSAIDs to help with the fever. Cough medicine has little support for its use, is not recommended in children under the age of six.

There is tentative evidence. Antibiotics should not be used. An exception is. Tentative evidence supports pelargonium to help with symptoms. Getting plenty of rest and drinking enough fluids are recommended as well. Chinese medicinal herbs are of unclear effect. Acute bronchitis is one of the most common diseases. About 5% of adults are affected, about 6% of children have at least one episode a year, it occurs more in the winter. More than 10 million people in the US visit a doctor each year for this condition, with about 70% receiving antibiotics which are not needed. There are efforts to decrease the use of antibiotics in acute bronchitis. Acute bronchitis is the most common type of bronchitis. Chronic bronchitis is defined as a productive cough that lasts for three months or more per year for at least two years; when this occurs together with decreased airflow it is known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Many people with chronic bronchitis have COPD however, most people with COPD do not have chronic bronchitis.

Estimates of the number of people with COPD who have chronic bronchitis are 7 to 40%. Estimates of the number of people who smoke and have chronic bronchitis who have COPD is 60%; the term "chronic bronchitis" was used in previous definitions of COPD but is no longer included in the definition. The term is still used clinically. While both chronic bronchitis and emphysema are associated with COPD, neither is needed to make the diagnosis. A Chinese consensus commented on symptomatic types of COPD that include chronic bronchitis and with frequent exacerbations. Chronic bronchitis is a respiratory disease marked by overproduction of mucins; the excess mucus is produced by goblet cells and enlarged submucosal glands in response to long-term irritation. The mucous glands in the submucosa secrete more than the goblet cells. Mucins thicken mucus, their concentration has been found to be high in cases of chronic bronchitis, to correlate with the severity of the disease. Excess mucus can narrow the airways, thereby limiting airflow and accelerating the decline in lung function, result in COPD.

Excess mucus shows itself as a chronic producti

1988 Chatham Cup

The 1988 Chatham Cup was the 61st annual nationwide knockout football competition in New Zealand. Up to the last 16 of the competition, the cup was run in three regions. National League teams received a bye until the final 64 stage. In all, 147 teams took part in a new record for the time; the final was the last to be held over home and away legs. The format was abandoned for the 1989 Chatham Cup; the 1988 final was the only one to be decided on the away goals rule, with Waikato United winning after scoring more goals in the first leg in Christchurch, despite both matches ending in draws. The Christchurch team included Steve Sumner, returning to the city after a spell with Gisborne, playing for the team he had played against in the 1987 final; the first leg was held in Christchurch, proved to be an exciting match. Waikato took the lead through Steve Tate, Lance Bauerfeind doubled their advantage. Christchurch never gave up, scored twice in the last 20 minutes through John Hanson and Johan Verweij.

The two goals scored by Waikato in the first match were to prove invaluable. The second tie, in Hamilton, was evenly balanced. Waikato's Steve Tate again opened the scoring, with a goal after 17 minutes; the away goals rule meant that Christchurch would need two goals — a 1–1 draw would not be enough for them. In the event, one goal was all they got, via a Keith Braithwaite penalty a quarter of an hour before the final whistle; the Jack Batty Memorial Trophy for player of the final was awarded to double goalscorer Steve Tate of Waikato United. * won on penalties by Queens Park and South Auckland * won on penalties by Waikato United Aggregate score 3-3.

Samba Jazz!!

Samba Jazz!! is the third album recorded by the group Meirelles e Os Copa 5, led by J. T. Meirelles. Released in 2002, this album celebrates the return of the group, after a long period without recording any song; the album was produced by J. T. Meirelles, who composed and arranged all its songs. Despite the long period between the last album, Novo som, Samba Jazz!!, Meirelles tried to keep the same music conception he had when he was 20 years old. He tried to create simple songs, influenced by jazz, but at the same time which remind Brazilian music. In fact, this album evocates the samba-jazz rhythm as in 1964, when Meirelles e Os Copa 5 recorded their first album, O som. J. T. Meirelles: alto saxophone, flute Guilherme Dias Gomes: flugelhorn Laércio de Freitas: piano Adriano Griffoni: bass Robertinho Silva: drums and percussion
