Someday in August a decision could rock the Valle

first_imgSomeday in August, a decision could rock the Valley. Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks will declare his starting quarterback for Week 1 of the NFL season. The moment could polarize the locker room and sports fans all across Arizona.Enjoy the calm before the storm.Sam Bradford vs. Josh Rosen is not a guarantee. It might not be necessary. It could be one of the most gripping competitions of training camp, worthy of national headlines. Top Stories This much is certain: Rosen has won the Super Bowl of first impressions. He has dispelled questions about his commitment to football. He’s earned glowing praise from grizzled veterans. He’s impressed his most discerning critics, the Cardinals’ offensive linemen, the men who must protect him.Related LinksCardinals’ Rosen chases perfection not worrying about rookie hurdlesKurt Warner: Rosen needs to prove he’s capable of starting earlyThat’s a heavy accomplishment for a 21-year old who came to Arizona on the strong tailwind of hype, a kid who arrived as a brash loudmouth and instantly changed the narrative.“No one is going to say you’re stepping on toes if you’re doing as much as you can every single day,” Rosen said.For now, the quarterback competition has been clean and full of camaraderie. Bradford texted Rosen shortly after the NFL draft, offering his support. Rosen has been careful to straddle the line, knowing his place while simultaneously declaring his talent. Mike Glennon has faded happily into the background, content to be somebody’s $4 million backup.So far, there are no bruised egos or hurt feelings.“With Sam, Mike and Chad (Kanoff), it’s a really awesome, productive, up-tempo quarterback room,” Rosen said Tuesday. “I’m finishing reps, coming off the two-minute period today, and Sam’s giving me tips here and there. I’ll be there for him for anything he ever needs from me. He’s been flattening out the learning curve for me.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Arizona Cardinals’ Sam Bradford (9) hands off to David Johnson (31) during an organized team activity at the NFL football team’s training facility, Tuesday, May 15, 2018, in Tempe, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Wilks has made it clear that Bradford will enter training camp as the team’s starting quarterback, but Rosen will have an opportunity to win the job on merit. It’s an open competition that seems to hinge on the degenerative knee of a duct-taped veteran, and if Rosen’s brainpower and arm strength are indomitable forces.The rookie has a unique advantage. He excels at communication. He hates clichés and people who bring their cellphones to dinner. He’s personable and fully engaged, exhibiting early traits of a great leader. His persona is much different than Bradford’s, an Oklahoma native who is more humbled, reserved and laid-back.“I like his spunk,” tight end Jermaine Gresham said. “(He has a) great personality. He’s not dry.”Rosen has also benefitted from the Bradford Protection Plan, where the veteran has been kept on a leash to preserve his damaged knee. That meant Rosen received rare reps with the first team in 11-on-11 drills, where he validated his candidacy as a potential Week 1 starter.Now it’s Bradford’s turn. The veteran will start testing the knee and assuming more reps in the dangerous drills. It’s a chance for Bradford to build separation in his race against a rookie, a battle that will culminate in training camp. Either way, Rosen has succeeded all early expectations. He’s changed his perception, defying critics who downgraded him as an affluent, loudmouth, distracted quarterback. But there was some truth in the opinion of former UCLA coach Jim Mora Jr., who said Rosen would “set the world on fire” if he ever fully concentrated on football.“Whatever activity it is, I want to be great at it,” Rosen said. “I want to be the best at it. And football in particular, I wanted to sort of put school to the side for a little bit and put everything into this just to see how good I could be. Because I’m really curious.”So are Valley sports fans, a group that could be treated to one of the most riveting competitions in training camp history. After all, greatness rarely waits or sits on the sideline for too long.Reach Bickley at dbickley@bonneville.com.

first_img— Ready or not here it comes. I’ve been talking about it for a couple years. Most (95%) people deny that it could happen and that they will never embrace it. At least half of them are scared of the maybe, and stick their heads in the sand. I’ve brought it into conversation many times and witnessed the reaction. The cars of the near future will move like a school of fish or a flock of birds, all totally aware of everything around them and will react in micro seconds, calculating the best moves within the safe parameters of the vehicle’s stability.

Get more details on his latest idea here Increasing TransparencyFor years, the crypto space has been like the Wild West. There have been few – if any – regulations on crypto assets… and little or no protection for investors, either. Regulated exchanges will change that by bringing transparency to the crypto market. And that transparency will lead to real price discovery of the value of bitcoin.Price discovery is the process of determining the proper price of an asset through the interactions of buyers and sellers.Let me explain…The value of the entire cryptocurrency market is about $110 billion. That’s tiny compared to other asset classes. For instance, the global stock market is $50 trillion – or 450 times greater than the crypto market.Because it’s relatively small, the crypto market is easier to manipulate.I’ve heard stories about some unscrupulous people sending bitcoin back and forth to each other at slightly higher prices. That gives the appearance of increased volume.When unsuspecting traders start piling in, the perpetrators unload their huge stakes for big profits. Those who are late to the game are left holding the bag.To be clear, manipulation happens in all types of markets – including the stock market.Now, it’s nearly impossible to manipulate large, liquid stocks of companies like Apple and Amazon.But it’s easier for crooked actors to manipulate small-cap stocks. They just need to spread a rumor to pump up the stock. And when other investors pile in, they dump their shares for big profits.These new crypto exchanges will greatly reduce manipulation of crypto prices by allowing supply and demand to meet in a regulated environment. And that will bring asset prices closer to their true value.So for the first time, we’ll have actual price discovery in bitcoin. And here’s why that’s important…Removing a Roadblock to Institutional BuyingIn July 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) denied the Winklevoss twins’ application for a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). (The Winklevoss brothers are best known as early investors in Facebook.)The SEC said the proposed ETF failed to satisfy the requirements of the Exchange Act – specifically, “the requirement that its rules be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices.”The SEC won’t be able to use that rationale to block a bitcoin ETF once the ICE and Nasdaq launch their exchanges.Once these exchanges are up and running next year, we’ll have regulated and trustworthy market mechanisms to tell us the actual worth of bitcoin.In 2019, we’ll finally discover the true price of bitcoin. And we think it’ll be much higher than it is now.That’s why you want to own cryptos before institutions get into the ICE and Nasdaq platforms – and before the average investor can buy a bitcoin ETF. If you believe that this will happen like we do, use the pullback to buy some bitcoin now.Just remember, cryptos are volatile. So keep your position sizes small. You don’t need to bet much for the potential of life-changing gains.Regards,Nick Rokke Analyst, The Palm Beach DailyP.S. The launch of two regulated crypto exchanges will boost the prices of cryptocurrencies in 2019. But most people don’t know that there’s another way to make money from cryptos…You see, some crypto projects pay “dividends.” That way, you can generate crypto income no matter what the market does.

His recent essay on bitcoin is so good, I had to share it with you right away.As Nick explains below, we’ll soon know the true price of bitcoin. Read on to see why this is important, and what you should be doing today… By Nick Rokke, analyst, The Palm Beach DailyBitcoin is in its worst bear market since 2014…The world’s largest cryptocurrency has dropped nearly 85% since trading at an all-time high near $20,000 in December 2017.But that crash isn’t scaring everyone away… The world’s second-largest stock exchange still plans to launch bitcoin futures contracts early next year.According to recent reports, Nasdaq is still working with regulators to introduce new crypto products by the first quarter of 2019, despite the weak crypto market over the past year.Nasdaq will join the world’s largest exchange operator and owner of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) – which will launch its own physically delivered bitcoin futures exchange on January 24, 2019.center_img Silicon Valley Insider Reveals His Shocking Tech Forecast for 2019His previous forecasts have given early investors the chance at rare and exceptional gains as high as 200%… 1,011%… and more. December 25 could be the start of a medical revolution“These FANG stocks already hit the top. But there’s a new industry just starting to make its way up.” Early investors in four tech industries likely became millionaires as innovative breakthroughs disrupted their fields… Today, there’s only one breakthrough capable of upending the market… It’s what I call the “God Key,” and it’s expected to grow by 35,000% in the coming years. — Whether you’re a crypto skeptic or believer, this is bullish news for cryptocurrencies over the long term.It bears repeating: The world’s two largest stock exchanges are still on board with bitcoin – despite its recent crash.Nasdaq and the NYSE didn’t become the top two global exchanges by offering products their clients didn’t want, either. Their institutional clients are demanding crypto products. Otherwise, they wouldn’t put their money and reputations on the line.Nasdaq and the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE, the owner of the NYSE) are laying the groundwork for institutions to make crypto investments.When these institutions enter, they won’t just send a trickle of money into this market… they’ll send a flood. And that will be great news for all crypto holders.But there’s another important thing institutional investors will give bitcoin: a true measure of its value.

In the global health world giving people access t

first_imgIn the global health world, giving people access to health care — even if they’re just basic services — has long been a top priority.But what if that approach is wrong?A new report published in The Lancet on Wednesday finds that when it comes to health, quality — not quantity — seems to be more important.The study estimates that 5 million people die every year because of poor-quality health care in low- and middle-income countries. That’s significantly more than the 3.6 million people in those countries who die from not having access to care.It’s also five times more than annual deaths from HIV/AIDS (1 million) and three times more than diabetes (1.4 million) in the same countries — although, of course, poor health care for these conditions can also be fatal.”For a very long time in global health, we have been really mandating and supporting and pushing access to care, without really thinking about what happens when people get to the clinic,” says Dr. Margaret Kruk, the co-commissioner of this study and a professor at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health.These findings come from The Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systems, a two-year project on measuring and improving the quality of health systems around the world.The commission is made up of 30 experts — academics, policymakers, health advocates — in 18 countries. Their data comes from a range of surveys, including household surveys in 47 countries, a survey they conducted about quality of care and 81,000 assessments of care by researchers, funded by USAID, who observed health visits at clinics and hospitals in 18 countries.NPR spoke with Kruk about the study.This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity.What was perhaps the biggest finding of the report?There are 8.6 million deaths every year in low- and middle-income countries — the majority of the world, 134 countries — that could have been saved with good-quality health systems. These were deaths from treatable conditions because people didn’t get good care.Of that 8.6 million, we found that 5 million were people who got care but just got poor quality care. The remaining 3.6 million were because of a lack of access, which has been the traditional focus in global health.What are examples of poor health care?On average, in health care visits, we see providers typically follow fewer than half of the recommended clinical actions. For very sick children, an average length of visit might be 6, 7 or 8 minutes with a nurse. It’s too little time to properly assess that child.In a five-country sample in sub-Saharan Africa, only 50 percent of providers can accurately diagnose pneumonia or diabetes — very common conditions.The system as a whole is failing people. There are huge delays. If someone comes forward with concerns of cancer in a low-income country, there can be months of delay between that visitation and actual diagnosis — never mind treatment.It’s a crisis, particularly when governments all over the world are trying to expand health insurance. If your insurance services won’t save lives, what is the real value in expanding insurance and universal health coverage?Can you talk about the background of this commission?Together with my co-chair, Muhammad Pate, who was the former Minister of State for Health in Nigeria, we assembled a group of people who are academics thinking about health systems and how they function, and another group of people who are on the ground, struggling to improve health systems in the field.The whole premise of the commission is to say: How are we doing on quality globally? We were concerned the focus on access has overshadowed our understanding of what actually happens in health systems.What is the message for health-care systems?If health systems are to improve health, they have to do two things. They have to promote utilization of essential services that save lives — malaria treatment, HIV treatment and so on. But they also have to deliver on good-quality treatment, good-quality care.As you mentioned, global health has long focused on providing access to care. Now, it seems the focus is shifting to equity, to equitable access — for instance, making sure women and children receive the same quality of care as men, or that poor people receive the same level of care as their richer neighbors.It’s interesting that you use the word “equity.” The other major focus [of the study was on] vulnerable groups. We looked at people who are poor, who are less educated, people who have stigmatized conditions, teenagers who are pregnant. And even in a setting of relatively poor overall care, they get worse care. Even just simple treatments. For example, younger teenagers are less likely to get iron [supplements] during a prenatal care visit.Equity is critical, but I would add the word “quality.” It’s about access to quality services.What does quality health care look like?For us, quality is about three things. One is effective care that can improve or maintain health. The second is about earning the trust of people. The third is that systems have to adapt and adjust. That means a quick adjustment when there’s an outbreak but also the ability to change over time.Fundamentally, the big shift we propose is that systems should be for and about people. We should be judging them on what they do for people — not how many doctors they train.About 1 in 3 patients consistently has a poor experience of care. Disrespectful care, extremely short visits, poor communication, long wait times. Many parents — 40 to 50 percent — leave the clinic without knowing the child’s diagnosis. Is it because the provider doesn’t know or is it because the provider isn’t communicating? That’s hard to say in a survey. But the fact remains that the parent walks out not knowing what’s going on.You’ve mentioned child health in particular. Did your research focus on that? If so, why?The reason I mentioned children is because the strongest data we have, and the most complete, are in those areas. The Millennium Development Goals have really been about children and women, in large part, and infectious diseases. So when you look at current measurement systems and surveys and research, they are quite focused on women, children, people with HIV and so on.We wanted to speak broadly about the range of health priorities in low-income countries — which includes noncommunicable diseases, cardiovascular disease, accidents and so on. Mental health is another huge area. But we found extremely limited data. We are calling these complete blind spots right now.You mentioned a previous focus, in global health, on infectious disease. According to this report, the total number of deaths from poor-quality health care is five times higher than HIV/AIDS.These numbers are really large. We identified about 5 million deaths due to poor quality among people already using the health system. When you look at global deaths from cardiovascular disease, it’s about 2.5 million. Then there’s about 900,000 tuberculosis deaths.It’s an epidemic, really, of poor quality. Even though access to care is still incomplete — people with depression still can’t get services, people with cancer often cannot get any care in low-income countries — even with that low level of access, quality is the bigger challenge.What are the potential solutions?Probably the biggest surprise for me is in this question of how we improve. That’s because when we examine the evidence of very commonly used improvement strategies — checklists, refresher trainings, supervision — we were quite disappointed in the effectiveness of those strategies and the inability of these things to scale. Even if you have a result in one clinic, we have no samples where that’s permeated the whole country.So we took a very different look at improvement. A lot of the improvement has been focused at the point of care — right at the moment where the provider meets the patient. But actually, given the scale of the problem, we need to move further back to a much more foundational strategy.We identified four universal actions. The first is establishing a system-wide focus on quality, because there’s no accountability today. There’s no system to sound an alarm, and there needs to be one.Second, you’ve got to redesign health systems. A lot of health systems today are organized to maximize access — a lot of small clinics spread out over a large territory.Just to give you an example, in the U.S., Australia, and other wealthy countries, very few women deliver in hospitals that don’t offer C-sections — almost none.But in a five-country study we did in sub-Saharan Africa, we found that almost 1 in 3 babies born in health facilities are at very, very low-level [facilities] without C-sections, with minimally trained workers.This is an example where a service like delivery should be moved up to the hospital where surgery could be provided. Let’s put that service in place and help women get to the hospital, rather than waiting for complications to develop in that remote clinic.Third, the health workforce education in many low- and middle-income countries is just really outdated. Clinicians come out very good at identifying pathologies on slides but have a harder time doing problem-solving and connecting with patients.And then the last area of improvement for us was public demand. In most service industries, it is the pressure of customers that often improves the product or service. Yet in health care, we ignore patients as consumers. Many people anticipate low quality and have low expectations. But people do want good care.So how do those people get better services?We really do need to gather together and think about what we can do to support low-income countries in the transformation we’re calling for. One thing is introducing new measures and new knowledge that will help one country learn from another. We have to stop flooding the countries with quick fixes and shiny solutions.High-quality health systems are fundamentally a political issue. It’s a critical moment for leaders to see what people are looking for from the health system.Melody Schreiber (@m_scribe on Twitter) is a freelance journalist in Washington, D.C. Copyright 2018 NPR.

BonTon will liquidateA group of investors inclu

first_imgBon-Ton will liquidate.A group of investors, including U.S. mall owners, signed a letter of intent Friday to acquire substantially all of the assets of The Bon-Ton Stores from bankruptcy and the company is seeking court approval to pay the investors’ fees and expenses, according to court documents.The investor group includes Great Neck, N.Y.-based commercial real estate investment and management firm Namdar Realty Group; Columbus, Ohio-based shopping center real estate investment trust Washington Prime Group and New York-based investment firm DW Partners LP. Reuters reported last week that mall owners Namdar and Washington Prime could jointly bid on Bon-Ton’s assets.Bon-Ton announced Monday that the investor group that signed the letter of intent wants to acquire the company as a going concern in a bankruptcy court-supervised sale process. The company said it and the investor group are in the process of finalizing an asset purchase agreement in advance of an auction, which is now scheduled to be held on April 16. Bill Tracy, president and chief executive officer of Bon-Ton, put out a written statement late Monday thanking Bon-Ton employees, vendors and other partners. He said the company would remain focused on serving customers through the transition.“We are pleased to have received this signed letter of intent and are advancing our discussions with the investor group to complete an asset purchase agreement as we proceed toward the court-supervised auction,” Tracy said. “With the help of our advisors, we will evaluate all qualified bids and are committed to maximizing value and pursuing the best path forward for the company and our stakeholders.”DW Partners is an alternative asset manager focusing on investment in credit markets across a broad range of asset types and strategies.Namdar Realty Group is a privately held commercial real estate investment and management firm that owns and operates more than 30 million square feet of commercial real estate in the United States. Washington Prime Group is a retail real estate investment trust and a recognized leader in the ownership, management, acquisition and development of retail properties.The purchase price would include “an aggregate purchase consideration sufficient to have a minimum excess availability of 22.5% at closing and a minimum aggregate cash payment of no less than $128 million,” according to court documents.Bon-Ton is the parent company of Boston Store and has its corporate headquarters in Milwaukee and York, Pennsylvania. The company filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year. Bon-Ton’s assets were scheduled to be auctioned Monday, but the company pushed the auction to Tuesday over the weekend. On Monday afternoon, the company once again pushed the auction back, this time to April 16.As of the bid deadline on April 4, the company had received several bids for individual or groups of its assets and four bids for substantially all of the company’s assets. The Namdar/Washington Prime bid was the only one that plans to continue the company as a going concern and the only one that does not plan to liquidate the assets and wind-down the Bon-Ton business, according to court documents.Bon-Ton says a sale to the mall owner group would allow for its continued operation as a business, the preservation of relationships with the majority of landlords and vendors and the continued employment of most Bon-Ton employees.On Friday, the company filed a notice with the state Department of Workforce Development indicating that 2,255 Wisconsin employees could potentially lose their jobs if it company does not find a going-concern buyer.Those employees work at the company’s corporate office in downtown Milwaukee and at stores in Brookfield, Eau Claire, Glendale, Greendale, Janesville, Madison, Marshfield, Milwaukee, Racine and Wauwatosa, according to the notice.Besides Wisconsin, Bon-Ton has filed WARN notices in several other states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and South Dakota over the last two days. It is legally required to provide employees with 60 days notice before they lose their jobs.Bon-Ton, which has 22,745 employees and 254 stores, previously announced plans to close 47 stores this year, including nine stores in Wisconsin. The only store in the Milwaukee area that is slated to close at this time is the Boston Store clearance store on South 27th Street in Milwaukee.The company is now seeking court approval to pay up to $500,000 in fees and expenses for the potential buyers to continue their due diligence. A bankruptcy judge in the U.S. District Court for Delaware will consider the request on Wednesday.“The debtors are hopeful that the payment of the investor group’s fees and expenses as set forth herin will prove to be the bridge between the debtors’ marketing and sale efforts and the ultimate consummation of a value-maximizing transaction,” the company’s court filing says.According to the letter of intent, the Namdar/Washington Prime group would offer employment to many current Bon-Ton employees with “benefit plans substantially similar in the aggregate to those provided by (Bon-Ton).” The group also has no plans to replace existing members of the management team.The deal is subject to the group being declared as the winning bidder and securing credit financing for the business, along with other conditions.The letter of intent is only good until April 15 or until the parties reach a definitive agreement, whichever occurs first.

Tesla Has Revealed Its New Roadster the Quickest Car in the World

first_imgTesla Tesla Has Revealed Its New Roadster, the Quickest Car in the World –shares November 17, 2017 2019 Entrepreneur 360 List Matthew Humphries Next Article 2 min read Senior Editorcenter_img Apply Now » Image credit: Tesla via PC Mag Add to Queue It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, has a top speed over 250 mph and a range of 620 miles. The only list that measures privately-held company performance across multiple dimensions—not just revenue. Tesla prepared everyone yesterday for the Semi truck reveal, and it certainly delivered an impressive vehicle capable of carrying 80,000 pounds of cargo. What we didn’t expect, though, was a brand new version of the Tesla Roadster brought on stage in the back of a Semi.Tesla is claiming the new Roadster is the quickest production car in the world, and it’s hard to argue against that when looking at the base specs. The Roadster will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds. Zero to 100 mph takes 4.2 seconds, and quarter mile acceleration is 8.8 seconds. Then there’s the top speed, which hasn’t been revealed yet but is north of 250 mph. As for wheel torque, it’s gauged at 10,000Nm.So the Roadster is fast, but Tesla doesn’t seem to have compromised to achieve the speed. It’s an all-wheel drive supercar that can seat four people and travel 620 miles on a single charge. The glass roof is removable and stored in the trunk making it a convertible, and I doubt anyone would argue about how great it looks.For this level of performance, especially with a Tesla badge attached, you can expect to pay a small fortune to own one. The base price will be $200,000 with a $50,000 deposit required. There is also a Founders Edition costing $250,000, of which only 1,000 are set to be offered. Regardless of how quickly you can get that $50,000 deposit together, Tesla won’t deliver the new Roadster until 2020.Before anyone scoffs at the $200,000 price point, keep in mind the performance on offer and the competition it beats. Look at any of the new supercars in development by Mercedes, McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini or Bugatti, and prices start at $500,000 before quickly going up into the millions. Tesla has them all beat.Related video: 2 Strategies to Write Off Auto Expenses This story originally appeared on PCMaglast_img read more

Its Time to Stop It With the Terrible Passwords

Add to Queue It’s Time to Stop It With the Terrible Passwords –shares Reporter Passwords Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful.center_img 2 min read With World Password Day coming up this Thursday, it’s a good time to audit your password practices.If you base your passwords on easily obtainable personal information, or have a go-to password you use for multiple accounts, it’s time to do better. But rest assured, you’re not the only one who sucks at passwords.A recent PCMag survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers, conducted between April 27 and April 29, revealed that 19 percent use their name or initials in their passwords, a big security no-no. Many others use their wedding date (16 percent), the name of a family member (15 percent), birth year (12 percent), house address (12 percent) or spouse’s personal information (8 percent).Meanwhile, most of us aren’t too savvy when it comes to remembering our passwords, either. Twenty-eight percent of respondents write them down on paper, 17 percent simply remember them by rotating between the same two or three for all their accounts, 12 percent rely on their browser’s auto-fill feature and 7 percent use Google Docs or Notes on their computer or phone.Perhaps worst of all, 9 percent of survey respondents said they use the exact same password for all their accounts.If you can relate, it might be time to consider a password manager. Used by just 13 percent of survey respondents, password managers help you generate and keep track of unique and strong passwords for every secure website. Some of our favorite paid options include: Dashlane, Sticky Password Premium, Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault and LogMeOnce Password Management Suite Ultimate 5.2 ($39 at LogMeOnce). There’s also plenty of free password managers out there; our favorite is LastPass.Besides helping to secure your accounts, password managers can save you the hassle of getting locked out. Fifty-seven percent of those who use a password manager said they “rarely” get locked out of their accounts.

Healthy gut microbiome shown to be important for recovery after heart attack

first_img Source:https://news.wisc.edu/recovering-from-a-heart-attack-hold-the-antibiotics/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Oct 10 2018The community of microorganisms that live in the human gut has been shown to confer all kinds of health benefits. Now, an international team of researchers has shown in mice that a healthy gut microbiome is important for recovery after a heart attack.Writing today (Oct. 8, 2018) in the journal Circulation, a team led by surgeon Patrick Hsieh of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, reports on experiments that show mice recovering from heart attacks are more likely to die if treated with antibiotics, a common intervention in hospitalized patients.”This is a new thing to add to the list of potential complications” for recovery from a heart attack, says Timothy Kamp, a UW-Madison professor of medicine and cardiologist who contributed to the new study.It is common, Kamp explains, for hospitalized patients to be dosed with broad spectrum antibiotics to treat a variety of infections, and some of these patients have heart attacks. But antibiotics can be indiscriminate and eliminate not only bad microbial players, but also the microbes we depend on to stay healthy, including the trillions of fungi and bacteria that help make up the gut microbiome.Working in collaboration with microbiome expert and UW-Madison Professor of Bacteriology Federico Rey, Hsieh and Kamp treated mice with antibiotics to deplete the gut microbiome a week prior to experimentally inducing myocardial infarction or heart attack.The depleted microbiome, the team found, tamps down the production of a set of three short-chain fatty acids, which are produced as the gut’s community of microorganism’s metabolizes food and which act as important chemical messengers to the body’s immune system. The diminished response, says Hsieh, “impacts the immune response and the repair response after myocardial infarction.”Related StoriesHeart disease is still the number 1 killer in Australia, according to latest figuresTeam approach to care increases likelihood of surviving refractory cardiogenic shockCutting around 300 calories a day protects the heart even in svelte adultsConversely, when the mouse microbiome is restored through a fecal transplant, the researchers observed an uptick in mouse physiological well-being and survival. And in mice that had their microbiomes boosted through the use of probiotics or other interventions prior to a heart attack, increased cardioprotective effects and survival were the hallmark effects. Previous studies in healthy mice have shown that the microbiome influences gene expression and the deployment of the short-chain fatty acids that help regulate immune response.The current study showed that production of a small set of short-chain fatty acids was diminished by a depleted microbiome, but there likely are many more players – perhaps thousands – that may also be affected and that play a role in the immune response to a heart attack, says Kamp.The research also showed that heart attacks themselves influence the health of the microbiome: “We found changes after myocardial infarction even without any antibiotics,” notes Rey. “Your microbiome changes as a result of a heart attack.”However, the key finding – that a depleted microbiome and its diminished production of short-chain fatty acids blunts recovery from a heart attack – suggests that clinical intervention to manipulate the microbiome through a more nuanced use of antibiotics and supplementing it with probiotics will help human patients recover faster and more robustly from heart attacks, says Kamp. He adds that the study also identifies the short-chain fatty acids themselves as a potential therapeutic target to bolster a favorable immune response in the context of cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of death in industrialized societies. “The immune system and inflammation play a role in repair from a heart attack. We’ve known about the relationship between the microbiome and immune response. Now we’re getting at how that relationship works after a heart attack.”last_img read more

Study shows precision medicines could aid more breast cancer patients via RNAtargeting

first_img Source:https://www.scripps.edu/news-and-events/press-room/2019/20190206-disney-breastcancer-her2positive.html Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 8 2019When women or men receive the worrisome diagnosis of breast cancer, that news comes with an important piece of information, namely, whether their cancer is HER2-positive or HER2-negative. It can be especially difficult to hear that one’s cancer is HER2-negative, because it means an effective group of targeted anti-cancer drugs isn’t available.A new study from the lab of Scripps Research chemist Matthew D. Disney, PhD, suggests that in the future, that might not be the final word on the matter. Writing in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Disney’s group describes shifting three different cancer cell lines from HER2-negative status to HER2-positive status with the addition of a selective micro-RNA binding molecule they referred to as TGP-515.It’s a revolutionary idea, that a cancer’s genotype might not have to be the limiting factor in its range of targeted treatment options. However, this is just a first step in a long series of work ahead to enable the technology to benefit cancer patients, Disney notes.The team designed their compound by using a mathematical system Disney developed called Inforna. The compound rendered the cancer cells vulnerable to both Herceptin (trastuzumab) and Kadcyla (ado-trastuzumab emtansine), both targeted therapeutics. Meanwhile, it left healthy breast cells unaffected.”It’s possible that precision medicines like Herceptin can be made available to a wider group of people by altering gene expression with therapeutics that bind not to the proteins but to noncoding RNA,” Disney says.About 20 percent of people diagnosed with breast cancer have the HER2-positive mutation, which means the surface of their cancer cells have more of the HER2 protein on them. While that mutation is associated with faster growing, more aggressive cancers, since 1998 it has come with good options for effective treatment. Since the monoclonal antibody drug Herceptin was introduced, 10-year disease-free survival rates for the HER2-positive breast cancer subtype surged to 84 percent.For breast cancer patients with dwindling options, switching on HER2 sensitivity might be life-changing, Disney says.”This study is proof of concept for the strategy of creating sensitivity to a drug where one otherwise wouldn’t exist,” Disney says. “It also validates the notion that transcription of genes can be modulated via small molecule compounds engineered to bind to relevant noncoding RNA. This means that supposedly untreatable diseases may, one day, be readily treatable. There is a long way to go for this to get to patients, however.”Related StoriesSugary drinks linked to cancer finds studyTrends in colonoscopy rates not aligned with increase in early onset colorectal cancerHow cell-free DNA can be targeted to prevent spread of tumorsThere were many challenges that had to be overcome to create the effective compound, says first author Matthew G. Costales, a Scripps Research graduate student. Unintended targets had to be identified and blocked, and selectivity engineered into the molecule. Disney’s computational system, Inforna, guided the efforts.The first compound the Inforna database highlighted bound to two different micro RNAs, both 885 and 515. That could have posed problems. Further refinement made it clear that a compound could be designed to be selective for one micro RNA but not the other. Eventually they created a molecule that successfully selected only for the desired microRNA, 515. The result was that the cells produced increased HER2 levels, making them sensitive to the drugs.”The demanding synthetic, biochemical, and cellular experiments described in this paper were three years in the making,” Costales says. “It required tremendous effort, but the work is by no means complete. I am looking forward to future work guided by the lessons we learned here.”Disney credits his colleague, Scripps Research chemist Alexander Adibekian, PhD, with helping understand the mechanisms of action of their compound, TGP-515, and demonstrating its selectivity.It’s important to note that this is a first step toward making drugs to boost HER2 sensitivity where there is none, Disney says. Significant additional research lies ahead, he says.Successful tests in cultured cells must be followed with tests in mouse models of cancer, a process that will take several years. Financial support from the community, including Frenchman’s Creek Women for Cancer Research, Alan and Susan Fuirst, and the R. J. Scheller Graduate Student Fellowship, has helped made the work possible.”These studies would not have been realized without the local support graciously provided by the community,” Disney says. “I am incredibly grateful for the community taking the time to invest in the future of biomedical research completed here at Scripps Research.”last_img read more

CPath and CDISC release global Therapeutic Area Standard for HIV research

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 17 2019The Critical Path Institute (C-Path) and CDISC are pleased to announce the release of a global Therapeutic Area Standard that specifies how to structure commonly collected data and outcome measurements in clinical trials for HIV. The standard, released in the form of User Guide for data managers, statisticians, programmers and study managers, covers the areas of prevention, vaccines and treatment and is freely available on the CDISC website.CDISC Therapeutic Area User Guides (TAUG) provide examples and guidance on implementing CDISC standards to drive operational efficiencies within the organizations that use them, expedite the regulatory review process and reduce time to market.HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, is one of the world’s most serious health and development challenges. According to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), there were approximately 36.9 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS at the end of 2017. Of these, 1.8 million were children (<15 years old).Implementing this standard will allow HIV data to be structured effectively and easily analyzed, leaving more time for researchers to focus on discoveries that will have invaluable impact on clinical research and global public health. This standard will also promote data harmonization across a wide range of studies in HIV, which will facilitate collaboration and cross-study analyses to ensure the highest return on research investments."We were honored to be a part of the amazing team working on the development and publication of the new Therapeutic Area User Guide for HIV clinical trials," said C-Path President and CEO Martha Brumfield, Ph.D. "The importance of these standards cannot be underscored enough. We encourage the research community to rapidly adopt this information in their studies, as structuring data in a common format is key to supporting the development of additional drug development tools and therapies for HIV/AIDS."Related StoriesPatients with HIV DNA in cerebrospinal fluid have high risk of experiencing cognitive deficitsAMSBIO offers new, best-in-class CAR-T cell range for research and immunotherapyHIV DNA persists in spinal fluid despite treatment, linked to cognitive impairment"Collaboration and inclusivity have always been bedrocks of CDISC's culture. It's why we convene a global community of experts from across the research spectrum and facilitate the development of standards that are open and available to all, enabling data sharing around the world," said David R. Bobbitt, CDISC President and CEO. "The development of this important standard has benefitted from the input of a diverse set of collaborators to tackle a critical public health issue."This CDISC Therapeutic Area standard for HIV was developed through the Coalition for Accelerating Standards and Therapies (CFAST) initiative, a partnership of CDISC and the Critical Path Institute (C-Path), with participation from the NIH National Cancer Institute Enterprise Vocabulary Services (NCI-EVS), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), TransCelerate, the Japan Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) and additional stakeholders. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Division of AIDS (DAIDS) was a major partner in the development of this User Guide. The goal of the CFAST initiative is to accelerate clinical research and medical product development by creating and maintaining data standards, tools and methods for conducting research in therapeutic areas that are important to public health. This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHSN272201700078C and the US FDA through grant 1U01FD005876.CDISC standards have been adopted and used in more than 90 countries. To date, TA standards have been developed for over 30 disease areas.Source: https://c-path.org/cdisc-develops-therapeutic-area-standard-to-foster-more-efficient-and-meaningful-research-for-hiv/last_img read more

Harmful algal blooms in Lake Eries central basin pose toxic threat

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)May 18 2019Harmful algal blooms pose a unique toxic threat in Lake Erie’s central basin, new research has found.Not only do blooms routinely occur in this area, they can also produce types of cyanobacterial toxins that aren’t typically detected through routine water-safety monitoring, according to a study published in the Journal of Great Lakes Research. Harmful blue-green algal blooms and the toxic microcystins that accompany them have been a persistent threat in the lake’s western basin. But until this study, bloom-related toxins hadn’t been formally documented and analyzed in the central basin.Several years ago, environmental scientists began hearing reports of harmful algal blooms in the central basin, in the waters just west of Cleveland. This was surprising at the time because the experts thought these environmental threats were concentrated primarily near Toledo, Chaffin said.The water in the central basin hadn’t been thought of as friendly to cyanobacteria because it isn’t as warm or nutrient-rich as in the western basin, where nitrogen and phosphorous is plentiful because of agricultural runoff brought in by the Maumee River.The research team sampled the water in four areas from 2013 to 2017 and analyzed satellite images taken before then for evidence of blooms. They found a cyanobacterium called Dolichospermum in the central basin during early-season blooms in July. This cyanobacterium is capable of producing a toxin that can attack the central nervous system in humans, and the researchers found genetic evidence that the bloom has the potential for the neurotoxin. What this means is that if you’re a water plant operator in Cleveland, you have to be ready by late June or early July for cyanobacteria because they do have the potential to produce a really potent toxin. It could also be a problem for beachgoers if there’s a north wind and these blooms gather along the Ohio shoreline.”Justin Chaffin Related StoriesOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchResearch sheds light on sun-induced DNA damage and repairBacteria in the birth canal linked to lower risk of ovarian cancerResearchers have shared these findings with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and with water plant operators, he said.Later in the season, the researchers found the cyanobacterium Microcystis – the chief troublemaker in the western basin, which feeds off of excess phosphorous – in the central basin. The toxins, called microcystins, that it produces are most harmful to the liver and also a threat to the kidneys and reproductive system. Water plant operators routinely look for microcystins.Figuring out precisely what is causing these unexpected algal blooms in the central basin will require more work, Chaffin said.”We still can’t pinpoint what’s really causing these blooms because it’s a complex interaction of several factors,” he said.But the new study did find evidence that it’s a combination of low levels of iron (which decreases nitrogen availability), muddy water and a strain of Dolichospermum adapted to cooler waters.The researchers found an association between central basin blooms and lower water clarity – meaning that when the water is muddier, the likelihood of harmful blue-green algae goes up. There’s also evidence that iron plays a role. If there’s not enough iron, beneficial algae’s growth is suppressed, but the harmful algae found in this study likely flourish because they are efficient at capturing iron when the nutrient is in short supply, Chaffin said.Continual work to reduce sediments, which lead to lower water clarity, is important, he said. And though phosphorous and nitrogen – which have driven blooms in the western basin – aren’t present in high concentrations in the central basin, minimizing them is important to Lake Erie’s overall health, he said.Source:Ohio State UniversityJournal reference:Chaffin, J. et al.

Journal of Great Lakes Research. doi.org/10.1016/j.jglr.2018.12.006 The cyanobacteria we found in the central basin are completely different from what we’ve seen in the Toledo area in the western basin.That’s troubling because water treatment plants aren’t typically set up to look for this bacteria or the toxins they create. It requires more expensive, more sophisticated equipment.”Lead researcher Justin Chaffin, a senior researcher and research coordinator at The Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratorylast_img read more

Yevgeniy Nikulin, 30, pleaded not guilty to computer intrusion, aggravated identity theft and other charges in federal court in San Francisco. Nikulin had been extradited from Prague earlier in the day.Prosecutors say Nikulin penetrated the computers of Silicon Valley firms in 2012 and potentially gained access to the personal information of millions of Americans.”This is deeply troubling behavior once again emanating from Russia,” U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a news release.He said computer hacking is “a direct threat to the security and privacy of Americans” and that the U.S. won’t tolerate it.Nikulin’s defense attorney has said his case is politically motivated in the U.S.Czech Justice Minister Robert Pelikan’s decision to send Nikulin to the U.S. was announced just minutes after the country’s Constitutional Court released a statement that it rejected a last-minute appeal from the Nikulin as “groundless.”No further details were immediately available about the decision in which both the U.S. and Russia suspect him of criminal wrongdoing.The Czechs arrested Nikulin in Prague in cooperation with the FBI in October 2016. Russia also wanted him extradited on a separate charge of internet theft in 2009.Both countries submitted their extradition requests on the same date.The Russian authorities previously had said they would do all they could to prevent Nikulin’s extradition to the U.S.Czech courts previously ruled both extradition requests meet the necessary legal conditions, leaving the decision to the justice minister.But after a last-ditch complaint filed by Nikulin with the country’s Constitutional Court, the minister had to hold off on a decision until the court ruled.Earlier this week, U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said in Prague that under Czech extradition law “we have every reason to believe and expect that Mr. Nikulin will be extradited to America.”But the Czech Republic’s pro-Russia president, Milos Zeman, repeatedly asked Pelikan to allow Nikulin’s extradition to Russia, the minister said. Zeman has no official say in cases like this one.Pelikan’s decision will likely further strain relations between the Czech Republic and Russia after the Czechs expelled three Russian diplomats in solidarity with Britain over a nerve agent attack on an ex-spy.In a statement published by Russia’s Tass news agency, the Russian Embassy in Prague called the step “deeply disappointing.””Prague once again preferred the notorious allied solidarity without taking into account all the factors and circumstances of this case,” Alexei Kolmakov, the embassy’s press secretary, was quoted as saying.

(Photo: PTI)HIGHLIGHTSMumbai residents held protest against BMC for failing to trace the 18-month-old missing infantThe protest March began from the residence of Divyansh, which was led by his father Divyansh had slipped into an open drain outside his residence on Wednesday eveningLocal residents of Goregaon East on Saturday along with family members of the 18-month-old Divyansh Singh, who drowned in an open drain on Wednesday, staged a protest against the (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) for the civic body’s failure in tracing the missing infant.The protest March began from the residence of Divyansh, which was led by his father and family friend Shravan Tiwari.At the protest, residents shouted slogans against the civic body and complained about BMC’s incompetence in order to find the missing infant.Divyansh had slipped into an open drain outside his residence on Wednesday evening as Mumbai continued to witness heavy rains.Since then rescue efforts by the NDRF and BMC had been launched to find the baby boy.The rescue and search operation was carried out through the open drain leading to null in the radius of around 3 to 4 square kilometres, eventually leading to the creek, but did not yield any positive results.Finally, after the NDRF called off the search, BMC had also called off the search operation on Friday evening.Divyansh’s family, who were still praying for a miracle, expressed displeasure when they came to know that the civic body had called off the search operation.After repeated phone calls and messages, BMC officials on Saturday started digging drain upwards in which the kid had drowned.Several ducts and concrete slabs were removed but it didn’t help with any clue of the missing kid.By Saturday morning, a BMC team with an earthmover reached the spot and started removing the ducts and concrete slabs over the drain in upwards direction to look for the kid.A BMC official on the spot said that they were trying to see under the covered areas of drain suspecting that the kid might have gotten entangled in the cables passing from the drain. This attempt, too, was fruitless.Around 3:30 pm, locals led by Divyansh’s father Suraj and his friend Shravan Tiwari spearheaded a protest march to the BMC’s ward office in Goregaon west of the P South Ward.”We demand that the mayor of BMC should resign because it is their failure which has led to this incident. Since the past three days we waited that they will help and find the kid but they called off the operation,” said Shravan Tiwari, a family friend of Divyansh.”The ward officer never even bothered to meet us or visit the spot where the incident happened. We met her but the meeting has failed to provide anything concrete and the BMC officials have nothing to say. They should be punished and reprimanded for the shoddy job they do,” said Divyansh’s father Suraj.”We will continue our protest and agitate against the civic body’s lethargic attitude. I want justice for my child,” he added.Meanwhile, the police was yet to ascertain on what sections and against whom the FIR be registered as the infant’s body is yet to be found.Also, the CCTV the footage was being examined to see who was the person who had removed the concrete slab from the spot where the kid drowned.ALSO READ | Amit Shah directs officers to provide assistance to flood-affected statesALSO WATCH | Did this scooter fall into a rain-filled pothole’ in Mumbai?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
