People on the bottom rung of the socioeconomic ladder may live two years less on average than those at the top, according to a large-scale study published Wednesday.

This makes social rank a bigger risk factor for illness and premature death than either high alcohol consumption or obesity, and it nearly equals the risk posed by physical inactivity, researchers said.

On average, a low social rank shaved over 25 months off the average lifespan, compared with six months for heavy alcohol intake and eight months for obesity, according to Lifepath, a European Commission-funded consortium that conducted the study.

For diabetes, the risk was almost four years in lost life, and for smoking nearly five.

The study was the first attempt to weigh the health risk of socioeconomic status against other "modifiable" factors, the authors said, at least in high-income countries.

KAMPALA (Uganda) • A team of Ugandan engineers has invented a "smart jacket" that can diagnose pneumonia faster than a doctor, offering hope against a disease that kills more children worldwide than any other.

Dubbed Mama-Ope or Mother's Hope, the kit consists of a biomedical smart jacket and a mobile phone application that does the diagnosis. The jacket, which is still only a prototype, can diagnose pneumonia up to three times faster than a doctor and reduces human error, according to studies by its inventors.

Each year, pneumonia - a severe lung infection - kills up to 24,000 Ugandan children under the age of five, many of whom are misdiagnosed as having malaria, according to United Nations children's agency Unicef.
A lack of access to laboratory testing and infrastructure in poor communities means health workers often have to rely on simple clinical examinations to make a diagnosis.

With the easy-to-use Mama-Ope kit, health workers merely slip the jacket onto the child, and wait while its sensors pick up sound patterns from the lungs, as well as the child's body temperature and breathing rate.

paperfuge - Show Posts - hubag bohol

NEW YORK (360Dx) – Inspired by a children's toy, researchers at Stanford University have developed what may be the world's fastest non-motorized centrifuge.

Called a "paperfuge," the device is capable of separating plasma from whole blood and purifying malaria parasites from blood samples, and could potentially be used for rapid, inexpensive diagnostics.

As described in a paper published Tuesday in Nature Biomedical Engineering, the paper-based device costs $.20 to make. The paperfuge can achieve maximum speeds of 125,000 RPM for an equivalent centrifugal force of 30,000 g, approximately the maximum force of a standard benchtop microcentrifuge used for small tubes of sample.

Researcher Manu Prakash and co-authors took inspiration from a children's toy called a whirligig. This toy, examples of which date to 3,000 B.C., consists of a small wheel in the middle of a length of coiled string attached to handles. Stretching the string causes the string to unwind and the toy rotates. Releasing the string causes it to coil up again and the toy to spin in the opposite direction.

Economics and experience foretell failure of Duterte's war on drugs - expert
By: Tricia Aquino,
January 25, 2017 8:03 AM

MANILA, Philippines -- Economics and the experiences of other countries that have tried the same approach foretell nothing but failure for President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs, which has claimed more than 7,000 lives in the seven months since he took office and sparked bitter debate over the bloodshed, an expert said. 

Dr. John Collins, the executive director of the International Drug Policy Project under the London School of Economics' think tank IDEAS, said the drug problem is “very complex” and requires a broad, societal, and integrated solution, not Duterte’s “anti-development” approach, which he described as an “extreme form of repression.”

Collins spoke on Skype Monday at a forum on anti-drug campaigns at the Ateneo de Manila University, the second organized since the beginning of the Duterte administration by the Ateneo School of Government in partnership with other units.

He said Duterte's pledge to “free society of drugs” isn’t new. “What President Duterte has been (saying) has been claimed many, many times over the last century. The thing is, every single time it has failed.”

Because drugs, especially synthetics like crystal meth or shabu, are renewable commodities that can be made in a laboratory, trying to suppress supply is likely to fail in the long run.

“I’m in the best place now, and where I should be,” says Shirley Maya Tan.

Her eyes seem to light up whenever she mentions the Enchanted Farm in Angat, Bulacan, a Gawad Kalinga community that she and other “social investors” helped grow into a model township, complete with a livelihood enterprise and alternative university for budding social entrepreneurs.

“The farm is my home, my playground, my birthplace,” says the 47-year-old Malaysian writer, blogger and now, community builder. “My home in Kuala Lumpur is the fantasy, the transit lounge.”

Of all her titles, however, Tan seems proudest of one: “Mother of Spartans.”

The “Spartans” are the graduates of Gawad Kalinga’s School for Experiential and Entrepreneurial Development (SEED), a radical approach to education for the underprivileged that aims to transform rural youth into agents for social change. Instead of preparing them to be job seekers, the program makes them social entrepreneurs, creators of wealth, and generators of employment.

There seems to be a serial killer at large in the universe — a galaxy strangler — and astronomers are scrambling to identify the culprit, reports

A study of 11,000 galaxies has shown that many of them are having their gas aggressively stripped away. Since gas is essential to star formation, a galaxy's lifeblood, the phenomenon is a swift killer, and so far scientists have been at a loss to explain it. But new research by a global team of researchers based at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) may have narrowed down the list of suspects.

Physicists may have just manipulated 'pure nothingness'

What happens when you squeeze a vacuum? (Photo: University of Konstanz)

It's one of those philosophical questions we occasionally ponder: What is nothing? Can nothing be something? If not, then how can something come from nothing?

If there's one scientific field on the forefront of such conceptual paradoxes, it's quantum theory. And in quantum theory, nothing actually is something ... sort of.

See, according to quantum mechanics, even an empty vacuum is not really empty. It's filled with strange virtual particles that blink in and out of existence in timespans too short to observe. Nothingness, on the quantum level, exists on a level of intuitive absurdity; a kind of existence that is paradoxical but, in some conceptual sense, necessary.

Science isn't usually comfortable dealing with phenomena that can't be observed. That's what makes this latest breakthrough, from physicists at University of Konstanz in Germany, so very profound and important. According to their research, recently published in the journal Nature, the nothingness that exists on the quantum level is not only something, but its fluctuations can be grasped, manipulated, and perhaps even observed.

That's not supposed to be possible on the quantum level. One of the truly mind-bending axioms of quantum mechanics relates to something called Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. Basically, it's the idea that you can't measure something on the quantum level without fundamentally altering it. In other words, as soon as you attempt to observe some quantum system, the very act of observing it destroys it.

What the University of Konstanz researchers are claiming goes against this fundamental principle. They claim to have peered directly into the darkness and to have seen it for what it truly is. Or at least, they believe they have uncovered a method for actually observing things on the quantum level without destroying it.

Spying the Internet / Anger at skeletal sun bears in Indonesian zoo
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:55:52 AM »
AFP 12 hours ago

Animal rights activists Wednesday demanded the closure of an Indonesian zoo after skeletal sun bears were pictured begging for food from visitors and eating their own dung.

The bears at the zoo in the city of Bandung were shown waving their arms in the air inside their enclosure -- with their ribs visible through their fur -- as people hurled food at them.

In one video, a bear defecates in the enclosure and then eats its own faeces.

Many of Indonesia's zoos are poorly maintained and there are regular reports of animals dying in captivity. Bandung zoo came under fire last year after the death of a critically endangered Sumatran elephant.

The Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group, which shot videos of the bears last year, said it now wanted the zoo closed down.

"The bears ate their own dung, this happened because they are very, very hungry," Gunung Gea, director of the Indonesian group, told AFP.

"The enclosure of the bears was dirty, and visitors were free to give them whatever they wanted -- they were throwing in junk food."

Last week, physicists at the National Institute for Standards and Technology reported they'd cooled an object to a million times colder than room temperature. It was a record for the super-difficult science of super-cooling.

In this field, researchers inch ever closer to — but never reach — the state of absolute zero temperature. It's a science that has some very cool (pun very much intended) applications including ultra-sensitive gravity wave detectors for "hearing" distant black hole mergers.

But moving beyond these applications, why is super-cooling so hard to begin with? Why can't we just get to absolute zero degrees and be done with it?

The answer to this question drops us straight into one of the quantum universe's most startling features: The world never rests.

Another food scandal has been uncovered in China.

A group of some 50 factories have been found to be manufacturing artificial sauces and flavourings, some with illegal ingredients, in the Chinese city of Tianjin, the Beijing News reports.

The investigative report revealed that the products were being falsely labelled as popular brands such as Nestlé, Knorr and Lee Kum Kee.

It appears that one of the Nestlé products they were counterfeiting is Maggi seasoning sauce, commonly found in Asian supermarkets.

Knorr is owned by Unilever, and makes chicken cubes and condiments; Lee Kum Kee is a well-known Hong Kong brand famous for its oyster sauces.

President Duterte was just letting off steam when he threatened to ignore the Constitution and declare martial law, frustrated that despite his brutal war on drugs, the menace appeared to be continuing, according to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II.
