first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterEmirates continues to engage with its fans far and wide as it becomes the first airline to hit the coveted one‎ million follower mark on Instagram. The remarkable achievement positions Emirates as the largest transportation brand on the popular photo and video-sharing platform.Recently named the world’s most valuable airline brand, Emirates launched its Instagram channel in November 2013. In less than three years, the airline’s diverse and engaging content on Instagram has generated over 5.8 million likes and comments. From sports, lifestyle and travel, to adventure and food, Emirates uses the channel to tell visual stories that embody what the brand stands for: connecting people with what they love. Creative activations such as its hugely popular Emirates Cabin Crew Instagrammers campaign – where six members of the airline’s cosmopolitan cabin crew community exclusively took over the Emirates Instagram channel to showcase their life, travels and experiences – generated over 1 million likes and comments in less than two months.“As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Instagram is a great platform for us to share inspiring visual content about our people, interesting aspects of our operations, places to see, and things to do while travelling. Emirates has grown its Instagram following organically, and we are proud to hit the 1 million followers milestone,” said Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand.Aside from its recent Instagram milestone, Emirates has also become the first airline to hit 500,000 followers on LinkedIn. This positions the airline as the most followed travel brand in the world on the professional social media network as well as the most followed brand in the Middle East.  With a combined community size of over 11 million users across Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Instagram, Emirates has set the bar for engagement, not only in the airline category but among other lifestyle brands.“Our engaged and growing audience on social media reflect the deep-rooted connection that our customers and fans have with the Emirates brand.

first_img In Case You Missed It… Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, legendary speculator Doug Casey will host an exclusive FREE training webinar called “Doug Casey’s Biggest Speculation in History.” Doug’s never done anything like this before. But right now, he’s more interested in this rare investment situation than any other—and he’s so convinced this is something you need to do, that for the first time, he has put together this extended free training for you. Click here to register immediately. — Justin’s note: Yesterday, I told you why every government in the world is nervous about bitcoin…and why it’s set to move even higher from here. Today, I’m continuing this theme by sharing a new interview featuring Teeka Tiwari, one of the best cryptocurrency analysts in the world.Below, Teeka tells Palm Beach Daily analyst Nick Rokke why he underestimated bitcoin and why you should add some to your portfolio today. He also reveals where he thinks bitcoin’s price is headed in 2018… Nick: Who attends a cryptocurrency party? Teeka: This one had a lot of young entrepreneurs. But these weren’t your typical, foolhardy young entrepreneurs. These were really sophisticated guys. What was different about these guys from other entrepreneurs I’ve seen in the past is they already have existing businesses. One young man I met has 300,000 users on his blockchain application. Another person had 200,000 people on his platform. This is a big difference from the deals we’ve seen so far, which have been little more than a good idea and a white paper. The quality of projects coming to market in 2018 is very high. Nick: What does that mean for investors? Teeka: It means there will be a lot more opportunities to profit from cryptocurrencies. And the big boys are taking notice. They’re excited about these new projects. Over 1,700 people attended this conference. And most of them were from hedge funds, venture capital firms, family offices, and endowment funds. These are all people who are slinging around billions of dollars. And they’re all excited about investing in the cryptocurrency market. They wanted to meet these young entrepreneurs. That’s the biggest thing I noticed… the amount of institutional demand for cryptocurrencies that’s out there. I vastly underestimated how badly institutions want to get into this space… vastly underestimated. Justin’s note: As I mentioned, Teeka is one of the world’s leading crypto experts. He’s traveled the world and met with the top insiders to learn as much as he can about the booming crypto market. And his boots-on-the-ground research has helped his subscribers make life-changing returns following his recommendations. He currently has five crypto plays in his Palm Beach Letter portfolio, with an average gain of 3,270%. But don’t worry if you haven’t bought cryptos yet. There’s still time to get rich off this boom. You can learn how by enrolling in Teeka’s Crypto Millionaire Master Plan. This crash course teaches you everything you need to know about cryptos. Click here to get started. Nick: How’s that possible? You’ve been talking about the tidal wave of money coming into cryptos all year. Teeka: It’s not going to be a tidal wave… It’s going to be the biggest ocean of money in the history of the world. And that money hasn’t even hit the markets yet. The opportunity in cryptos is just beginning. But back to your question. Here’s why institutional demand is much bigger than I initially thought… These institutional investors will be able to trade the new bitcoin futures contracts later this year. But that’s not the same as owning physical bitcoin. Right now, they can’t own bitcoin because of an issue called “custody.” You see, these large funds can’t hold onto their own investments. Most of them have contracts that state a third party will hold onto their assets as a custodian. This rule is in place to protect investors from potential fraud. So, these funds have institutions like Morgan Stanley or Goldman Sachs have “custody” of their investments. There are no institutional-grade custodians for cryptocurrencies yet. They need that piece in place before they can put money to work in the actual bitcoin market. Think about it being the difference between owning a futures contract on gold and actually owning gold bars. A futures contract can be held in a brokerage account whereas a gold bar needs to be held in a physical vault. As I said, right now there are no bitcoin “vaults” approved for institutional use. The good news is that will change next year. A slew of new companies is rising up to meet the custody challenge. Once custody is in place, the stage will be set for institutions to trade in the physical bitcoin market. And when that happens, billions—or even trillions—of dollars will be flowing into the space. And I hope everyone has an allocation to bitcoin before this money flows in. The move is going to be huge. Nick: What will all this institutional money do for the price of bitcoin? Teeka: I recently told my Palm Beach Confidential subscribers that bitcoin will reach $25,000 next year. And I am very confident it will reach that point. Some analysts at the conference project a bitcoin price of $300,000 by 2022. That’s not unreasonable. So, my price may be on the conservative side. Nick: Thank you for talking to us again, T. Have fun in Bogotá. Teeka: No problem.

What was it like? Teeka Tiwari, editor, The Palm Beach Letter: The energy there is incredible. It’s exciting. And all these guys want to network… get to know each other, and talk cryptos. It’s a new field and there are no established players yet. And if you’re not out there networking, you’re going to be left behind. I only planned to stay one night… But I stayed longer. I kept getting invited to private events hosted by hedge funds and initial coin offering (ICO) projects. I find some of my best ideas at these events. One party I attended was hosted by Mike Novogratz. He’s the manager of the biggest crypto hedge fund in the world. And he was one of the first Wall Street guys to realize the importance of cryptos. A couple years ago, Mike invested $500,000 in ether when it was under $1 per coin. He’s been following the space for a while. So, I wasn’t going to turn down an invite to his party.

first_img— — • These stocks soared because Trump made it his mission to revive the U.S. coal industry… Trump did this for a couple of reasons. Number one, he wants to bring back coal mining jobs. He also believes that a strong domestic coal industry “protects our national security, public safety, and economy from intentional attacks and natural disasters.”But don’t worry if you missed out on this big move in coal stocks.That’s because Trump could soon spark another big rally in energy stocks… and this one could blow the move we saw in coal stocks out of the water.I’ll show you how to position yourself for this in a minute. But first, let me tell you what Trump’s up to…• On June 1, Trump issued a controversial directive…He told Energy Secretary Rick Perry to take “immediate steps” to ensure that coal-fired and nuclear power plants stay open.I say “controversial” because many people don’t think Trump should be supporting coal over cleaner energy sources. Other critics warned that the move could raise energy prices.Still, I expect Trump to follow through on this.That’s because the White House has already instructed the Department of Energy (DOE) to place a two-year moratorium on nuclear power plant closures. The Trump administration is also considering a plan that would direct regional transmission companies to buy power from coal and nuclear plants.Trump’s calling for these measures because he wants to ensure a reliable energy source and to “promote the national defense and maximize domestic energy supplies.”If this goes through, it would be an unprecedented intervention by the federal government into the domestic energy market. It would also likely have massive implications for one commodity. And no, not coal. Recommended Link Recommended Link Why the Next Mega Bull Market Is NOT in StocksDr. Steve Sjuggerud says that another, hidden Melt Up is just beginning. Prices are as cheap today as they were in 1991. Full details here… Trump Declares National Emergency President Trump has mobilized his entire Administration to battle this problem by declaring it a National Emergency under federal law. And Congress just approved $6 billion to fight it. Now a company is joining the battle by tackling one of the biggest problems our country has ever faced. In the past, companies in this niche saw peak gains of 95,800%, 63,400%, even 216,100%. Could this new company be the next to ride this unique wave? Get all the details here before it’s too late. • I’m talking about uranium… The primary fuel used in nuclear power plants.It’s also one of the world’s most dependable energy sources. Unlike many renewable energies, it’s a form of base power. It provides power around the clock. It doesn’t matter if the wind’s blowing or if the sun’s shining.Uranium is also one of the world’s cheapest sources of energy.• Because of these advantages, uranium accounts for about 20% of America’s power needs… But get this… The United States only produces about 7% of the uranium it uses.The rest comes from abroad. And about one-third comes from Russia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan, which is problematic for obvious reasons.In short, America’s uranium supply is incredibly fragile. This is why Trump’s putting U.S. nuclear energy “first.”In his eyes, it’s a matter of economic and national security. And I expect Trump to do a lot more for the nuclear energy industry in the coming years.• Energy Fuels and Ur-Energy are calling for major reforms to America’s uranium industry… Energy Fuels and Ur-Energy are two of America’s biggest uranium producers.Recently, they asked the U.S. Commerce Department to radically rethink its uranium policies. Specifically, they requested that 25% of all U.S. uranium be purchased from U.S. producers for national security reasons. That’s about three times more uranium than U.S. producers currently provide. They also think that U.S. agencies should be required to buy all uranium from domestic sources. • Now, companies lobby for changes like this all the time… Often their requests fall on deaf ears.But I think Trump will take this request seriously. After all, he’s already shown a serious commitment to reviving the country’s nuclear power.And here’s the thing…• Trump won’t have to do much for uranium to skyrocket… Again, that’s because uranium is already dirt cheap.It’s down 83% since 2007. And it’s down about 34% over the past three years. That makes it the worst-performing major commodity, according to Palisade Research.More importantly, the uranium price is now below the industry-wide cost of production. This means the typical uranium producer is losing money.This isn’t sustainable. Sooner or later, the price of uranium will rise. And when it does, watch out. We could have a “rip your face off” rally on our hands.But don’t just take my word it…• Doug Casey’s extremely bullish on uranium, too… A few days ago, Doug said in an interview that “uranium may be my single favorite commodity.”Doug also said that now’s a better time to buy uranium than it was before the last major bull market.Keep in mind, the price of uranium soared from $10 to $140 during the last bull market. The best uranium stocks went 20-to-1 or 50-to-1. Some even went 100-to-1.So, consider speculating on uranium stocks if you haven’t yet.The safest way to do this is with the Global X Uranium ETF (URA). It allows you to bet on a basket of uranium stocks, which is less risky than buying individual stocks.Just understand that uranium stocks are extremely volatile.Blue-chip uranium stocks can swing 5% or more in day. Junior uranium stocks can move 20% or more.If you can’t handle that volatility, you should stay on the sidelines. And if you’re willing to speculate, don’t bet more money than you can afford to lose. Use stop losses. And take profits when you get them.Regards, Justin Spittler Lima, Peru June 20, 2018P.S. Crisis Investing editor Nick Giambruno is also bullish on uranium. He’s dedicated a section of his portfolio to the best uranium plays he’s found. And all are still buys today.

Then, relief came as part of the bill that ended the government shutdown last week.But the future of another vital health service remains uncertain. The more than 10,000 community health centers that treat low-income Americans have not seen a funding reauthorization.The centers, funded by the Affordable Care Act, retain bipartisan support, The Hill quotes Republican Senator Tom Cole saying “I certainly didn’t support Obamacare but I think one of the good provisions was the expansion of the community health centers … I think they’re a wonderful model. They’re a much cheaper way to deliver care to people that really need it. So, again, I think there is a commitment there to find a solution.”What will become of the centers where an estimated one in 13 Americans gets care?GUESTSJames Macrae, Associate Administrator, Bureau of Primary Health Care,Health Resources and Services Administration,U.S. Department of Health and Human ServicesLeighton Ku, Professor and Director of the Center for Health Policy Research, Milken Institute School of Public Health, George Washington UniversityDan Hawkins, Senior VP of Public Policy & Research,National Association of Community Health CentersKim Wagenaar, Chief Executive Officer, Cabarrus Rowan Community Health CentersFor more, visit https://the1a.org.© 2018 WAMU 88.5 – American University Radio.

At my babys sixmonth appointment a few months ba

first_imgAt my baby’s six-month appointment a few months back, I got a one-pager from the pediatrician titled “Starting Solid Foods.””It is critical that the baby develop a taste for rice cereal at the beginning, to offset the loss of iron from formula or breast milk,” it reads.Sounds serious. Then come the all caps: “THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF FEEDING GIVE RICE CEREAL ONLY.” That is followed by advice to introduce pureed vegetables before fruits so the baby doesn’t develop a sweet tooth.I obediently went out and bought some sand-textured baby cereal. (Organic, of course.)”Oh no, we’re not doing that.” My spouse pointed me to a parenting book we had on the shelf. “There’s no need for cereals alone; they are bland and bulky and their iron benefits are overstated,” it reads. “The idea that you should introduce vegetables before fruits to avoid creating a sweet tooth is just an unfounded myth. A carrot has virtually the same amount of sugar as an apple.”Welcome to early parenthood’s barrage of contradictory advice. It tends to be detailed, with convincing internal logic. “Studies” are often invoked. And the stakes feel so high — like, if I do this wrong, will my baby be malnourished or end up a picky eater or not succeed in life somehow?Enter Brown University economics professor Emily Oster and her new book, Cribsheet: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, From Birth to Preschool. It’s the follow-up to her first book, Expecting Better, a deep look at the data behind pregnancy advice, which has a bit of a cult following. (I am in this cult.)In her new book, Oster ticks through big and small parenting dilemmas. She uses her training as an economist to look at the relevant research for each of them and to assess how much stock we should put in the findings.”What I do in the book is actually try to comb through these studies and figure out which of them are giving us the best information,” Oster says. “So then you can make these choices having the best information, not just the first thing that comes up when you Google it at 3 o’clock in the morning.”OK, so what about my solid-food dilemma? Yea or nay on rice cereal? Veggies first?”It turns out there isn’t any evidence to suggest that is a particularly important way to introduce foods or not,” she says. The answer to this one: You do you. Keep the food mushy, and don’t stress about it too much.This wasn’t my only point of confusion that this book cleared up, even though I’m nearly four years into parenthood. Here are a few of my personal takeaways.Nipple confusion is not a thing — you don’t need to wait three weeks after birth to give a pacifier or bottle. (This makes me feel better about giving my firstborn a pacifier on day two.)Baby milestones have a wide normal range, so don’t obsess. (Still vaguely worried that by nine months my baby should be clapping.)Breastfeeding does not help mom lose weight. (Crushed.)A lot of the other takeaways are kind of nuanced. They don’t give you a clear-cut answer, so much as information to help you make your own decision. One reason for that is designing a good study of the risks and benefits of a parenting decision is really hard. Take, for example, Chapter 4: “Breast Is Best? Breast Is Better? Breast Is About the Same?” Oster provides a path through the maze of conflicting advice by sifting out the convincing studies from the questionable ones.”Most of the studies on this are done by comparing the kids whose moms breastfeed to the kids whose moms don’t,” Oster says. “The issue with that is that the kind of moms who breastfeed are different than the moms who don’t, on average. So, in the U.S. in particular, moms who breastfeed tend to be better educated, higher income, more likely to be married.”(It’s unclear why that demographic breastfeeds more, Oster says, but the timing for the trend is connected to the public health push away from formula that began in the 1970s.) Now, let’s say you want to find out the impact of breastfeeding — and not of these demographic differences — on things like IQ and obesity.”When we narrow in on some studies that are better — like, for example, studies that compare siblings, where one sibling is breastfed and one sibling is not — those studies do not show the same kinds of impacts on long-term things like obesity or IQ,” Oster says.For the record, she found that there are some health benefits to breastfeeding, but they’re more limited than the hype. If it works for you and your family, Oster concludes, great; if not, formula is a good option.So, even if you’ve made a decision about how to introduce solids and whether to breastfeed or bottle-feed, there are so many other ones to make! What about baby nap schedules, how to potty train or the financial impact of choosing a nanny versus day care versus staying at home?As an economist, Oster advocates for taking some of the angst out of it. When making a parenting decision, she says, “Step one is to kind of really figure out what the best evidence says about the choice.” Look for randomized studies and big sample sizes.”But then there’s a really important second step, which is to combine that with what is going to work for your family,” she says.For instance, when she first brought her baby daughter home, she knew the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your baby sleep in your room, ideally for the whole first year, as part of its safe infant sleeping environment guidance.”My husband did one day with our older daughter, and he was like, ‘I can’t believe it’s making those noises.’ He just couldn’t do it. He wouldn’t sleep,” she says. Room sharing for a full year was just not workable for her family.With Cribsheet, Oster is trying to make parents less confused, more confident in their choices and less judgmental of other parents who make different choices. Reading the book makes that feel surprisingly achievable. Laying out the research really strips these decisions of their drama, and you end up wondering why it all felt so overwhelming in the first place.When the time came to break out the solid foods with my baby, we did mashed sweet potato. A few months into it, emboldened by Oster’s book, we’ve gotten adventurous: This weekend at our Seder, baby even had a bit of brisket smushed up with horseradish. Copyright 2019 NPR.

Tributes have been paid to Stephen Hawking the wo

first_imgTributes have been paid to Stephen Hawking, the world-renowned physicist and “disability icon” who was seen by many disabled people as a hugely-important role model, who died this week.Among the disabled people who highlighted the importance of his achievements was the political journalist Dr Frances Ryan, who said on Twitter: “Growing up disabled in Britain, you don’t get many role models.“But seeing a genius, witty and kind Prof gain the world’s respect from his wheelchair meant something. All of us know we can reach for the stars.”Professor Tom Shakespeare, professor of disability research at Norwich Medical School, said on Twitter that “as well as his brilliant career in Physics”, Hawking had “allied himself to the disability rights struggle time and again” and “always challenged assumptions”.He added: “Stephen Hawking showed that you could make strides, even if you couldn’t walk; that you could have a powerful voice, even if you couldn’t talk; that you could be disabled and change the world. RIP.”Another disabled campaigner, Kaliya Franklin, who tweets at @BendyGirl, said Hawking showed others that “the richness and depth of human experience is part of all [of] us, regardless of appearance or ability to speak out loud” and that he had showed that disabled people “could achieve anything, at a time when so many were still institutionalised”.There was also irritation from many disabled people at the repeated efforts of the mainstream media to hail Hawking as an “inspiration” for “overcoming” his impairment.Disabled scientist Fiona Robertson said on Twitter: “Don’t say he ‘overcame’ his illness.“He was still disabled. He was both disabled and brilliant, not ‘in spite of’.”Robertson was another who had seen Hawking as a role model.She said: “As a young teenager, my battered copy of A Brief History of Time revealed to me how much people yearn for the complexity of science, to understand reality, to connect with that awe.“As a disabled scientist, I looked to #StephenHawking to see that I still had a role to play.”She was one of many who pointed out that he was only able to be “the light of cosmology” because “he had access to medical care, social care, adaptive technology, mobility aids”.She added: “He succeeded because of his brilliance *and* his access to support.”Franklin agreed, pointing out that he was enabled to live his rich life by “the NHS, PAs to support independent living, PAs to support his work, assistive tech and most importantly, to be surrounded by people determined to ensure those things happen”.The Centre for Disability Studies at the University of Leeds highlighted “the wondrous ways Professor Hawking explained the cosmos and its complex beauty” but also how he had supported disability rights, including criticising cuts to support for disabled students and fighting to protect the NHS.Marsha de Cordova, the disabled MP and Labour’s shadow minister for disabled people, said Hawking had been “a ground-breaking physicist, a firm advocate for the NHS, and a staunch defender of the welfare state and human rights – from opposing the Vietnam war to standing up for the Palestinian people” and had “never let his disability define him”.Disability Rights UK marked Hawking’s death by reposting the speech he gave as the fourth annual Jack Ashley Memorial Lecture last October.In the lecture, he spoke about his life with motor neurone disease, and his belief in the principles of the NHS, that good care should be provided “at the point of need, to everyone, without regard for personal circumstance, or ability to pay”.He added: “It is important that care is available, without any of the added burdens for people that come with private health insurance.“My team and I have had experience of dealing with health insurance companies in the US, and that disappointing experience shows that a health insurance company will try its best not to pay.”He also spoke in the lecture of his public row with Jeremy Hunt over the health secretary’s “cherry picking” of evidence on weekend NHS care, which Hawking said was “unacceptable”.He added: “International comparisons indicate that the most efficient way to provide good health care is for services to be publicly funded, and publicly run.“The more profit is extracted from the system, the more private monopolies grow, and the more expensive health care becomes.”He also said in his lecture that disabled people “must find new ways of doing things”.He said that he had travelled internationally, visited Antarctica, dived in a submarine, and experienced gravity-free space flight, as well as writing books, appearing in television programmes, and lecturing in the Royal Albert Hall.He told the audience: “I am not showing off. I am explaining that disabled people can do anything if they have a fierce will to succeed.”But he stressed, as other disabled people did this week after hearing of his death, that his international travel “involves an entourage of dedicated assistants and nurses, and my fame protects me against some of the types of indignity that we often suffer”.last_img read more

Twitter Retweets Can Now Contain Photos Videos GIFs

first_img Image credit: via PC Mag Twitter Retweets Can Now Contain Photos, Videos, GIFs New Twitter features roll out at a snail’s pace, with the memorable big changes being the increase in character limit and the switch from stars to hearts. This week we got a smaller, but still significant change to retweets. It’s now possible to retweet with a photo, video, or GIF attached.As The Verge reports, retweeting until now has been limited to two options: a simple retweet of the original tweet, or you could retweet with a comment. It’s that second option which is being expanded to allow the inclusion of media. So clicking “Retweet with comment” will now allow you to embed a photo, a video, or a GIF.For now, the retweet tweak is limited to Twitter on Android, iOS, or the Twitter mobile website. Desktop users don’t have access to it yet and these new media-rich retweets will look a little strange on desktop until that’s fixed. Even so, it’s sure to be a welcome update by users who’d rather not be limited to text when sharing someone else’s tweet with their followers.From Twitter’s point of view, the change proved quite challenging because it was difficult to get the layout right without things looking confusing. Stacking media can make the stream of information look muddled, so Twitter needed it to be very clear how the media was linked between the two tweets. This was achieved by placing the original tweet in a smaller box below the retweet, but also indented from it. That way the retweet looks more prominent, but it’s visually quite clear it’s a response to the indented tweet below.Retweeting with media is already being used and some major brands are taking full advantage, including Game of Thrones. It’s one of those features that will soon become a natural part of retweets and we’ll all forget how limited retweeting used to be. 2019 Entrepreneur 360 List Add to Queue The only list that measures privately-held company performance across multiple dimensions—not just revenue.

Potential treatment for rare poliolike illness shows no signal of efficacy

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Nov 9 2018Researchers have been searching for possible treatments for the polio-like illness causing paralysis in children, called acute flaccid myelitis. But a new study shows no signal of efficacy for one potential treatment, the antidepressant fluoxetine. The study is published in the November 9, 2018, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.Research suggests that the virus called enterovirus D68, or EV-D68, is one possible cause of acute flaccid myelitis. Lab tests showed that fluoxetine had antiviral effects against EV-D68, so the antidepressant was suggested by various experts as a possible treatment for acute flaccid myelitis, which can cause sudden muscle weakness in the arms, legs or neck, drooping eyelids and difficulty swallowing, speaking and breathing.”The lack of an efficacy signal for the treatments for acute flaccid myelitis evaluated in this study emphasizes the need for development and prospective evaluation of more effective treatment and prevention strategies for this potentially devastating condition,” said study author Kevin Messacar, MD, of Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora.For the retrospective study, researchers looked at the cases of 56 children with acute flaccid myelitis in 2015-2016 from 12 medical centers across the country. The children ranged in age from 2-1/2 to 9 years old.The 28 children who received more than one dose of fluoxetine were compared to the 26 children who did not receive the drug and two who had only one dose and were considered part of the untreated group. The children’s muscle strength in their arms and legs was recorded to determine whether the drug was effective.At their first exams, there was no difference between the two groups in muscle strength. But by the end of the study an average of seven months later, the children who had taken the drug had lower strength scores than the children who did not receive treatment. After adjusting for factors that could affect the results, such as age, sex, other treatments the children received and their strength level at the first exam, the researchers found that on a scale of 0 to 20 that grades muscle strength throughout all four limbs, the strength scores of children who received the drug worsened by 0.2, while the scores of those who did not receive the drug improved by 2.5.Related StoriesNumber of fully-immunized Australian kids hits record highUsing Light Scattering to Characterize Protein-Nucleic Acid InteractionsNovel vaccine against bee sting allergy successfully testedThe researchers also looked at the strength score of the weakest limb in each child and found the difference in this score from initial examination to latest follow-up was worse for children who received the drug than those who did not.The drug was well-tolerated by the children, with the number of side effects similar between those receiving the drug and those who did not.A total of 91 percent of the children were sick before developing acute flaccid myelitis, with 71 percent having fever and 73 percent having respiratory symptoms. Weakness started an average of 8.5 days after the start of the illness.More than 40 percent of the children had an enterovirus in their system, with 36 percent having EV-D68. A total of 57 percent of those who received the drug had EV-D68, compared to 14 percent of those who did not receive the drug.Messacar noted that the study has several inherent limitations in that it was looking back in time, patients were not chosen at random to receive the treatment or not and doctors and patients and their families were aware that they were receiving the drug. In addition, the small number of patients may make it difficult to draw definite conclusions.Source: https://www.aan.com/PressRoom/Home/PressRelease/2678last_img read more

Living transplant donors also need longterm monitoring to prevent adverse events

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 11 2019While organ transplant recipients receive continual care as the end-stage treatment to their condition, attention also should be given to living donors, who can suffer from hypertension, diabetes and other disorders after donation, according to a study by researchers at UC San Francisco.As reported online April 12, 2019, in JAMA Network Open, by aggregating data from publicly available clinical studies, the researchers found that nearly one in seven kidney donors experienced a potentially adverse event that may be related to their donation.”Our findings are significant for the transplant community,” said co-senior author Minnie Sarwal, MD, PhD, professor of surgery, medicine and pediatrics at UCSF. “We want to encourage donation, yet making the process more transparent for outcomes and safer by improved monitoring for donors, which does not exist long term, also appears to be of critical importance.”Solid organ transplant is the preferred treatment for most end-stage organ diseases, and about 6,000 adults in the United States and 30,000 worldwide are living donors annually. However, some living kidney donors develop postoperative kidney failure and enter the organ donation system as potential recipients on the transplant waiting list, and this group also is at increased long-term risk for cardiovascular and end-stage renal disease, as well as all-cause mortality, compared to matched nondonors eligible to donate.In the new paper, Sarwal and her colleagues analyzed 20 clinical transplant studies compiled between 1963 and 2016 and housed in ImmPort, a clinical and molecular data repository hosted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to review 9,558 donors, referring to their final data set as “ImmTransplant.” To validate the study’s accuracy, they used data collected from 1987 to 2016 and stored in the U.S. national transplant registry maintained by the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network administered by the United Network for Organ Sharing.While no recorded events occurred in 85.3 percent of donors, the most common adverse events were hypertension (806 cases, 8.4 percent), diabetes (190, 2 percent), proteinuria (171, 1.8 percent) and lack of bowel movements post-surgery (147, 1.5 percent). Relatively few events (269) occurred in the first two years after donation, and of the 1,746 events occurring from two to 40 years after, 1,575 cases (90.2 percent) were nonsurgical.Related StoriesNovel vaccine against bee sting allergy successfully testedCancer incidence among children and young adults with congenital heart diseaseImplanted device uses microcurrent to exercise heart muscle in cardiomyopathy patientsU.S. transplant programs are required to follow up with donors for only two years after transplant.Further, the researchers found that living kidney donors can experience renal or cardiovascular issues that increase their likelihood of renal failure without first experiencing intermediate events. Complications or conditions soon after donation also may not be predictive of long-term renal function or vice versa. As such, long-term systematic renal monitoring and routine regular checkups for living kidney donors is recommended.Sarwal said this study supplements ongoing research while a nationwide registry is being established to improve the recruitment, awareness, education and long-term health management of potential living donors, per an initiative launched after a June 2016 White House organ donation and transplant summit.Demographic characteristics from the study also can provide insights into donation patterns and potential strategies to better inform living donors, said Sarwal, treasurer of The Transplantation Society, an organization whose goal is to provide global leadership in transplantation.For example, a spike was found in living kidney donations among U.S. women whose age was in the childbearing range (age 25). As kidney donation increases the risk of hypertension and preeclampsia in pregnancies, living donors in this age range should be better informed and counseled.”We hope these findings supplement well-informed discourse for living organ donation among potential donors, recipients, clinicians, researchers and the public,” said lead author Jieming Chen, PhD, a former postdoctoral researcher at UCSF now with Genentech. “We’ve curated the transplant datasets in ImmPort as an initial proof of concept of its utility and applications so that the collection, curation and secondary analyses of other publicly available transplant data can be built on.” Source:https://www.ucsf.edu/last_img read more

Study identifies psychosocial factors that affect sexual satisfaction in postmenopausal women

first_imgSexual health challenges are common in women as they age, and partner factors play a prominent role in women’s sexual activity and satisfaction, including the lack of a partner, sexual dysfunction of a partner, poor physical health of a partner, and relationship issues. In addition, menopause-related problems such as vaginal dryness and pain with sex have been identified as problems affecting sexual function, yet few women seek treatment for these issues, despite the availability of effective therapies.”Dr. Stephanie Faubion, NAMS medical director Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Jul 10 2019The number of women regularly having sex declines with age, and the number of women enjoying sex postmenopause is even lower. Although these facts are not surprising, the causes for these declines may be because previous research focused largely on biological causes only. However, a new UK study identifies psychosocial contributors. Study results are published online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).It’s hard to pick up a woman’s magazine or ob/gyn journal anymore without reading an article about how and why a woman’s libido and level of sexual satisfaction decline during and after menopause. Substantial research has been conducted into biological reasons such as hot flashes, sleep disruption, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse. Much less is known about the effect of various psychosocial changes that are common postmenopause. These include body image concerns, self-confidence and perceived desirability, stress, mood changes, and relationship issues.Related StoriesSleep quality and fatigue among women with premature ovarian insufficiencyOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchSleep makes synapses ready for new learningOf the research that has been conducted regarding psychological influences, most of it has focused on quantitative results. A study of nearly 4,500 postmenopausal women involved in the UK Collaborative Trial of Ovarian Cancer Screening (UKCTOCS), however, looked at free-text data to better understand why women felt a certain way and the depth of those feelings.Among other things, the UKCTOCS sexual activity data showed that, at baseline, before the start of annual screening, approximately half of the women were sexually active. A decrease in all aspects of sexual activity was observed over time: sexual activity was less frequent, not as pleasurable, and more uncomfortable. The primary reason for absence of sexual activity was the lack of a partner, mainly because of widowhood.Other commonly cited reasons for decreased activity included (in rank order) a partner’s medical condition, a partner’s sexual dysfunction, the woman’s own physical health problems, menopause-related symptoms, and prescribed medication. Contributing most often to low libido were relationship problems, logistics, and perceptions of aging. Only 3% of participants described positive sexual experiences, whereas only 6% sought medical help for sexual problems.Study results appear in the article “Sexual functioning in 4,418 postmenopausal women participating in UKCTOCS: a qualitative free-text analysis.” Source:The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)last_img read more

Nextgeneration heat pump offers more affordable heating and cooling

first_img Provided by CORDIS Citation: Next-generation heat pump offers more affordable heating and cooling (2018, June 21) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-06-next-generation-cooling.html An international team of researchers has joined forces to meet Europe’s rising need for affordable and efficient geothermal solutions. Their work, which has received EU support through the GEOTeCH project, focuses on providing cost-efficient renewable heating and cooling for houses and small buildings.The GEOTeCH team has targeted this market for a good reason. According to the International Energy Agency, buildings are responsible for 30 % of global energy consumption and a substantial percentage of CO2 emissions. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems in particular make up about half of the energy used in buildings. And the sector is expanding, which makes reduced energy consumption and the use of renewable sources even more important.Project partners have used advances made in geothermal heat pump technology to develop a novel dual-source heat pump (DSHP) unit for heating, cooling and domestic hot water production. An article published in the International Journal of Low-Carbon Technologies provides information on the system’s characteristics and performance.The innovative DSHP takes advantage of either air or ground heat sources, depending on operating and climatic conditions. It’s able to select the most favourable heat source or heat sink (for heating or cooling, respectively) in a way that allows it to operate as an air-to-water or brine-to-water heat pump. Therefore, in winter it can provide hot water for heating buildings, using either the air or the brine from the ground as heat sources. Alternatively, in summer, it uses the air or brine as a heat sink to provide cooling. The unit also ensures year-round domestic hot water, which in summer it can generate using the system’s condensing waste heat.The pump is being demonstrated and monitored in four sites across Europe, one of which is UK project partner De Montfort University Leicester (DMU). Five boreholes have been drilled at DMU in locations where there was enough soft ground to drill down at least 10 m. Heat exchangers have been installed in four of the boreholes. In the fifth hole, temperature sensors have been set up to record data on changes in ground temperature. Data is also being recorded on energy consumption and comfort levels in the demonstration site, which replicates a small domestic building. “Geothermal energy is the future – it’s a clean and sustainable source of power,” says Prof. Greenough of DMU in a news item posted on the University’s website. “It does not produce greenhouse gases that can be harmful to the atmosphere. We want to know more about how heat pumps perform to support their rapid use across Europe. Most people rely on gas but there is a limited supply of fossil fuels, whereas geothermal heat pumps can make use of the practically limitless heat from the sun that falls on the ground and warms the air around us. People wrongly think that these heat pumps are expensive and that you need a lot of space to install them, but that need not be the case.”Through its research, GEOTeCH (Geothermal Technology for €conomic Cooling and Heating) is promoting more widespread use of renewable heating and cooling systems in the future.

Autonomous vehicles could shape the future of urban tourism

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Credit: CC0 Public Domain In the first study of its kind, published in the Annals of Tourism Research, academics from the University of Surrey and the University of Oxford have examined how Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) may have a substantial impact on the future of urban tourism. When we think of automated vehicles it seems to be a topic that sits firmly in science fiction, from cars with character in The Love Bug (1969) and Knight Rider (1982) to more recent practical representations in Minority Report (2002). However, according to the new research by Professor Scott Cohen (University of Surrey) and Dr. Debbie Hopkins (University of Oxford), AVs may be spotted on our roads as soon 2025 and could lead to far-reaching impacts on urban tourism.The conceptual paper entitled “Autonomous vehicles and the future of urban tourism” imagines the impact of AVs in future urban tourism and focuses on the pros and cons of these impacts with regards to the transformation of urban space, the rise of autonomous taxis, and changes to city sightseeing and hospitality in the urban night.Potential benefits include reduced traffic congestion and emissions, improved foreign car hire processes, reduced parking requirements and cheaper taxi fares. AVs may impact other industries in radical ways too, such as Amsterdam’s Red Light District, which could become operated out of moving AVs, and restaurants and hotels may encounter new competition in the form of AV dining cars and passengers sleeping in their moving vehicles.AVs are also the subject of many concerns. More time spent in cars on longer journeys could facilitate greater urban sprawl and increase car dependency. AVs may reduce demand for train travel, coach tours, public transport and driven taxis—all resulting in future job losses. The potential for terrorism facilitated by AVs also raises genuine security fears.Professor Cohen, Head of Tourism and Transport at Surrey’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, said: “This groundbreaking study will benefit urban planners, policy makers and the tourism and hospitality industries, who will face a range of threats and opportunities as AVs begin to reach the mass market in the coming decade.”The visitor economy will be gradually transformed if AVs become fully automated and mainstream, leading to a future where hordes of small AVs could congest urban attractions, hop-on hop-off city bus tours may go out of business altogether, motorways between cities could fill at night with slow-moving AVs carrying sleeping occupants and commercial sex in moving AVs becomes a growing phenomenon.”The paper calls for future work that provides context-specific analyses that may reveal alternative ways of thinking about AVs for urban tourism. Its release coincides this week with the World Travel Market and European Tourism Day on 7 November and acts as a timely reminder of the rising importance and significance of AVs in tourism to industry and policy makers.

Karnataka mulls geographical indication policy

first_imgSHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENT Published on May 03, 2019 The Karnataka government is planning to come out with a GI (geographical indication) Policy in the State, according to an official of the State government.In an informal chat with mediapersons on the sidelines of an interactive meeting with exporters at the Kanara Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) in Mangaluru on Friday, SR Satheesha, Managing Director of the Bengaluru-based Visvesvaraya Trade Promotion Centre (a Karnataka government organisation), said the State has 45 GI products in different sectors, including handicraft, horticulture, etc. Karnataka has maximum number of GI products among other states in the country.Stating that VTPC (Visvesvaraya Trade Promotion Centre ) is working on a strategy document on GI products in the State, he said: “We will have focussed meeting with the respective GI holders in the state. We will visit them to understand their issues, and to provide interventions wherever needed.”Highlighting the instances of gradual diminishing of some GI products in the State, he said the number of artisans producing ‘Udupi sari’ is coming down gradually. In such a situation, GI policy will help provide focused training programmes and skill upgradation facilities to the stakeholders of GI products.Apart from this, the policy will also want to make GI products competitive in the domestic and international markets. Considering this, plans are there to introduce concepts such as ‘GI tourism’, ‘GI exhibitions’, and ‘GI stores’ at airports, and also to develop ‘GI cluster’ in the State.Asked if any other State has taken initiative to launch a GI policy, he said Karnataka will be the first State to come out with a GI policy.Being niche in their segments, GI products have a lot of potential in the market. Somehow, they are not being marketed properly, Satheesha said. COMMENTS SHARE patent, copyright and trademark Karnatakalast_img read more

Former France great Giresse survives coup manhunt in coaching career

first_imgAlongside Luis Fernandez, Jean Tigana and Michel Platini, Giresse was part of the most eye-catching midfields France has ever had. He is often remembered for his goal in the epic World Cup semi-final against West Germany in 1982 and a celebration that is etched into the competition’s history. His coaching career began with two stints at Toulouse, winning promotion to the first division each time. He then spent two years with the Georgia national team before moving to Africa.POLICE PROTECTIONThe first stop was Gabon where he nearly quit following a furious reaction to a loss against Cameroon. “I experienced the anger of the public. I don’t feel safe. We’ve been threatened,” he said at the time. “Police had to ensure our exit from the stadium and I was the first one targeted.” Yet, he was persuaded to stay on and helped them qualify for Afcon in 2010 after missing four consecutive editions.Two years later, he led Mali to an impressive third place but shortly afterwards found himself in Bamako during a coup and was holed up for several days before he was able to leave for France.But it was contract terms that prompted him to resign. “It impeded my independence,” he said. “I had to give a list of players for approval and the medical staff was no longer under my direction.”He was back at the Afcon with Senegal three years later but a group stage exit left Giresse fearing more violence — this time from the media.”They went beyond the limits of decency,” he said. “It was of such verbal violence, and it could have spilled over into physical violence. They almost threw themselves on me at the end of the press conference. It was a man-hunt.”He returned with Mali in 2017 but they went out in the group stage.This time, his Tunisia side produced lacklustre performances as they drew their three group games before beating Ghana on penalties in the round of sixteen, helped by an inspired move from Giresse.The coach brought on reserve goalkeeper Farouk Ben Mustapha just for the shootout and the substitute saved a spot kick to send his side through.They finally won a match inside 90 minutes on Thursday by beating Madagascar 3-0, the first time that a Giresse-coached side has scored three goals in a match at the finals.”Now, we are the stage of the competition that Tunisia has waited for many years,” said Giresse. “It was our objective, now we have to go as far as possible.””We want to finish this competition in style.” (Writing by Brian Homewood; Editing by Christian Radnedge) {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} CAIRO (Reuters) – As a player, Alain Giresse was part of a midfield known as the Magic Square that lifted France to some memorable performances during the 1980s, which included winning the European championship.His coaching career has also been remarkable — though not quite in the way such a great player might have expected. In the last 15 years of working around Africa, the 66-year-old Tunisia coach, who is at his fifth Africa Cup of Nations finals, has been caught up in a coup, needed police protection and suffered what he described as a manhunt.But, after all that, he finds himself within touching distance of a major title, with his side having reached the semi-finals where they meet Senegal on Sunday.
