Major project to strengthen Indigenous employment and cultural safety in health care

first_imgNORTHERN, B.C. – A five-year research project focused on enhancing Indigenous health in Northern B.C will be headed by two UNBC researchers, together with northern and provincial partners.Dr. Sarah de Leeuw and Dr. Margo Greenwood received $1.3 million as part of a Healthy and Productive Work Initiative – Partnership Grant, from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, (SSHRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).The five-year project includes numerous Indigenous and non-Indigenous stakeholders across the North, Northern Health, Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George, and the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH). The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR), also a major partner, is contributing an additional $130,000 in funding. Building on a pilot project launched in 2016, this is the first joint federal research partnership grant of its kind to be held at UNBC. A focus will be put on ways to transform health service delivery in Northern B.C. Included are organizations and professions to be culturally safe and culturally humble environments to provide and receive care. The program also aims to inspire new generations of Indigenous youth in the North to enter the health-care field.“We are excited to have started this journey with our partners through which we will explore ways to celebrate Indigeneity in health care,” said de Leeuw, Northern Medical Program and Geography associate professor. “It’s an opportunity to develop northern-focused solutions that seek to create a more culturally humble health-care system that embraces Indigenous people and Indigenous knowledge.”“Our project aspirations include teaching future health-care providers through experiential learning, training health researchers who will be writing policy and developing the knowledge landscape that health services will be provided within, and inspiring future Indigenous health care leaders,” added de Leeuw.“Access to culturally safe care is a critical part of our ongoing commitment to improving services in our region and fostering respectful and collaborative relationships with our Indigenous communities,” said David Williams, Northern Health vice president of Human Resources. “We are committed to becoming more reflective of the people we serve in the North and look forward to furthering that goal through this project. We hope to attract more Indigenous employees to our workforce and also continue to improve the workplace for those employees.”last_img read more

UNESCO online atlas seeks to save dying languages

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today launched an interactive electronic version of its atlas cataloguing some 2,500 endangered languages worldwide.The updated Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger of Disappearing can continually be supplemented, corrected and updated based on user contributions.It ranks the dying languages according to five levels: unsafe, definitely endangered, severely endangered, critically endangered and extinct.Data shows that out of the 6,000 languages currently in existence, over 200 have died out over the last three generations, 538 are critically endangered, 502 severely endangered, 632 definitely endangered and 607 unsafe.According to the Atlas, unveiled on the eve of International Mother Language Day (21 February), nearly 200 languages have fewer than 10 speakers and 178 others have between 10 and 50 speakers.The language of Manx in the Isle of Man died out in 1974 when Ned Maddrell, the last speaker, passed away while Eyak, in Alaska, United States, met its demise last year with the death of Marie Smith Jones.“The death of a language leads to the disappearance of many forms of intangible cultural heritage, especially the invaluable heritage of traditions and oral expressions of the community that spoke it – from poems and legends to proverbs and jokes,” said UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura.More than 30 linguists worked on the Atlas, which highlights how the phenomenon of disappearing languages is evident in every region and in varying economic conditions.Nearly one-third of all of the world’s languages are spoken in sub-Saharan Africa, and it is estimate that 10 per cent of them will disappear during the course of the next century. India, the US, Brazil, Indonesia and Mexico are nations with great linguistic diversity, but also have the largest number of endangered languages.In France, 13 languages are severely endangered, 8 definitely endangered and 5 considered unsafe.However, the situation of languages is not equally dire worldwide. For example, Papua New Guinea, the most linguistically diverse with over 800 languages believed to be spoken there, has 88 – relatively few – endangered languages.Some languages classified as extinct, including Cornish in the United Kingdom and Sîshëë in New Caledonia, are being actively revitalized and could potentially become living languages again. 19 February 2009The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today launched an interactive electronic version of its atlas cataloguing some 2,500 endangered languages worldwide. read more


TSX heads lower after 3 days of gains amid solid US employment

TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed lower Thursday as traders stepped back after a string of gains that brought the TSX back into positive territory for the year.The S&P/TSX composite index lost 53.54 points to 12,481.37 while the Canadian dollar was up 0.36 of a cent to 98.94 cents after earlier running up to a two-month high of 99.15 cents US.U.S. indexes added to three days of gains as the number of Americans seeking U.S. unemployment benefits fell 42,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 346,000, which beat expectations of 360,000.The Dow Jones industrials were up 62.9 points to 14,865.14 while the Nasdaq composite index climbed 2.9 points to 3,300.16 after International Data Corp. reported global PC shipments fell 14 per cent in the first quarter, the biggest decline ever.The S&P 500 index edged up 5.64 points to 1,593.37.The gains pushed the Dow industrials and the S&P 500 further into record territory. The Dow has jumped 13.4 per cent year to date while the S&P 500 has charged ahead almost 11.75 per cent as investors react to a resurgent housing sector and the conviction that the Federal Reserve won’t be ending its stimulus program of buying bonds any time soon.“We’re still net/net standing positively toward the U.S. market,” said Sid Mokhtari, a market technician at CIBC World Markets.“It’s still outperforming relative to other countries, so money continues to flow into the U.S.”The TSX is only about 50 points in the positive column for the year as of the close Thursday and indications are that it will continue to badly underperform New York, in large part because it is so resource based.“There hasn’t been much of a vote of confidence for global economic recovery to be strong enough to be able to bring a better bid back into the market for commodities,” Mokhtari said.“At best, people are still talking about sub-par growth, muddle through scenarios for the global economic growth situation and that doesn’t bode well for countries that are tied to the commodities complex.”The TSX tech sector was the leading decliner, down two per cent with BlackBerry (TSX:BB) down $1.11 or 7.43 per cent to $13.82.Credit Suisse analyst Kulbinder Garcha said in a note to clients that his analysis of the company’s recent annual filing showed that gross margins reported for its fourth quarter were driven in part by lower levels of amortization and not entirely by the new BlackBerry 10 handsets that were launched during the quarter.The base metals sector lost 1.47 per cent even as May copper shed early declines to rise two cents to US$3.43 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) declined 38 cents to C$28.70.The gold sector was off about 1.5 per cent while June bullion was up $6.10 to US$1,564.90 an ounce. Iamgold (TSX:IMG) faded 26 cents to C$6.26.But Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX) gained 19 cents to C$25. Barrick shares tumbled almost nine per cent Wednesday after a Chilean court suspended work on its Pascua-Lama mine after indigenous communities complained that the project is threatening their water supply and polluting glaciers.Gold slid 1.7 per cent on Wednesday, partly on speculation that Cyprus will sell 400 million euros of the precious metal as part of its financial bailout.The May crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange declined $1.13 to US$93.51 a barrel. Prices backed off after the International Energy Agency lowered its expectations for global demand for crude in 2013 by 45,000 barrels to 90.6 million barrels a day.The energy sector dropped 0.68 per cent while Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) shed 58 cents to C$30.94.The financial sector gave back 0.39 per cent as Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) moved down 23 cents to $14.42.Royal Bank (TSX:RY) shares were off nine cents to $61.29 as chief executive Gordon Nixon made a public apology to the workers who are being affected by the bank’s outsourcing arrangement with a foreign company.On the earnings front, shares in Hudson’s Bay Company (TSX:HBC) gained 25 cents to $15 after it posted fourth-quarter earnings that were down compared with a year ago as its Lord & Taylor operations in the United States felt the impact of hurricane Sandy. The retailers net earnings from continuing operations were $93.6 million or 81 cents per share, down $5.6 million from a year ago.Astral Media Inc. (TSX:ACM.A) had $41.2 million or 73 cents a share in net earnings in the latest quarter, up eight per cent from the year-earlier period. Revenue also increased slightly, rising to $237.1 million from $233.5 million.The Montreal-based radio, television and outdoor advertising company is seeking regulatory approval to be acquired by BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE). Its shares edged a penny lower to $48.87.Corus Entertainment Inc. (TSX:CJR.B) shares fell $1.11 to $24.60 after it said Thursday that net income attributable to shareholders in the latest quarter fell to $5.9 million or seven cents per diluted share. That was down from $31.6 million on 38 cents from a year earlier. Corus cited a $25-million pre-tax debt refinancing charge as well as “soft” business results that saw a double-digit slide in quarterly revenue to $183.7 million.The TSX Venture Exchange added 0.8 of a point to 1,048.54.

Football Dwayne Haskins delivered for Ohio State in its hour of need

Ohio State redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) throws a pass in the fourth quarter of the game against Michigan on Nov. 25 in Ann Arbor. Ohio State won 31-20. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorANN ARBOR, Mich. — In 2014, then-redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett was injured in the fourth quarter in Ohio State’s blowout win against Michigan, forcing Cardale Jones to take to the field as his replacement.Jones with the lead and all the momentum. He did not feel the pressure of the starting gig until his next time out, when the Buckeyes played Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game.Watching from the sideline Saturday, Jones saw Barrett limp off the field against Michigan for the second time in his career. This time, Jones could not help, and another strong-armed pocket passer took the reigns. Redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins entered with the game on the line and his team trailing 20-14.He marched them 69 yards down the field, contributing two plays, each for more than 20 yards, before handing the ball to freshman running back J.K. Dobbins for a 1-yard touchdown to give Ohio State a 21-20 lead on what proved to be the game-winning score.Though he had the weight of the team’s College Football Playoff hopes and a win over the archrivals on the line, Haskins wasn’t phased.“It was really unreal, honestly,” Haskins said. “The first person would think that you’d be nervous and, honestly, I wasn’t. I had the O-line, I had the receivers, Billy [Price] and everybody else was behind me the whole entire way. I got the snap and we were just moving the ball down the field and play by play it happened.”Because Barrett’s injury happened just before the opening kickoff, putting his status into question, Haskins knew he might be needed. But Barrett toughed out the injury and played until late in the third quarter.As Barrett and the rest of the offense battled against the Wolverines, Haskins watched from the sideline, taking note of each and every play, watching for different defensive formations and preparing himself should the need for him to enter the game arise.It did, with 6:07 left in the third quarter. And Haskins was prepared. Only for a brief moment was there any uncertainty about what was going to happen.“When he actually did get hurt, it was a little bit of confusion, like, ‘Is he really hurt or not? Tell me to get ready. Am I really going in the game?” Haskins said.He took the field on third-and-1. The call was simple: hand the ball off to Dobbins, and the running back easily plowed through the line for a first down.Though a simple playcall, moving the chains and giving Haskins a fresh set of downs to work with helped settle him into the spot.“I mean after that first handoff I think when J.K. got the first down, I was like, ‘All right, we got the ball rolling now it’s first down I actually can start the drive,’” Haskins said. “After that play, it was just like, ‘let’s keep moving. Let’s go score the ball,’ and as time went on, it was crazy.”After that first down, Ohio State just kept the ball moving, led by the new man behind the center. In a pivotal third-and-13 situation, Haskins threaded the needle on a pass to sophomore wide receiver Austin Mack, who corralled a 27-yard reception. Then, after a Dobbins carry and with no open receivers, Haskins tucked the ball and took off down the right sideline before diving to the Michigan 1-yard line. Dobbins finished off the drive with a touchdown on the next play.“We didn’t want to put him in harm’s way and you saw somewhat conservative to let him settle in there,” Meyer said. “We had two or three first downs and then he hit that one play, which was phenomenal to Austin Mack and did a heck of a job. And then he scrambled for a big hit and he took care of the ball. That was the No. 1 thing, he took care of the ball.”Given he never trailed again, Haskins no longer shouldered that burden for the remainder of the game. For the most part, his role became the middle-man between Price and whichever running back stood beside him. But when asked to pick up a third-down conversion, three out of the remaining five times, Haskins was able to get it done. He hit H-back K.J. Hill on a crossing route for a 29-yard pass and hit him again on a similar play for 24 yards, both coming on third downs.“You see what he did on third-and-17, third-and-11, whatever the case was, and he’s able to convert on that. As a 19, 20-year-old young man, that’s incredible,” Price said. “I just say trust the offensive line. Trust us for getting our jobs done up front, you just make good decisions and don’t turn the ball over and we’ll be in good shape.”Haskins entered the season as the backup quarterback due to redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow breaking his thumb on his throwing hand. Haskins saw some time throughout the season, playing the clean-up role late in blowouts to gain some experience.Saturday, he was thrust into the Buckeyes’ most important game of the season against the team’s rival in enemy territory. And when the Buckeyes needed him most, he came through.The starting quarterback position will be up for grabs next season with Barrett officially leaving Ohio State, and Saturday’s game might go a long way in deciding that race early. With Barrett saying after the game he will be ready to go for the Big Ten championship game, Haskins might not repeat Jones’ feat in taking the team through the conference title against Wisconsin and the College Football Playoff. But Haskins has firmly planted his name as the front-runner for next season’s starting job.Should Haskins see time against Michigan in the future, it might not be as the backup. “How about that?” Price said. “Introduction to the rivalry.” read more

Opera Mobile 12 for Android gets a massive update Intel and MIPs

first_imgOpera has made some major improvements to its Mobile and Mini browsers in recent versions, and today at MWC 2012 they’ve announced a new spate of enhancements to their smartphone and tablet versions.First up is a new channel for Opera Mini, Opera Mini Next. Just like it is on the desktop, Opera Mini Next is aimed at beta enthusiasts that don’t mind trading the occasional bug or application crash for cutting-edge functionality. For this go-round, Next is offering up a glimpse at the new Opera Mini Smart Page, a social networking complement to the company’s trademark Speed Dial page. The Speed Dial itself has been improved and now supports an unlimited number of shortcuts.Its big brother, Opera Mobile, has seen numbers upgrades. First and foremost, there’s support for WebGL and hardware accelerated rendering on Android devices. HTML5 capabilities have been boosted, thanks to Opera’s Ragnarok engine, and users can now take advantage of web apps and forms that allow for camera input from tablets and phones. Like Opera Mini Next, Opera Mobile 12 now allows creating an unlimited number of Speed Dial entries.Opera Mobile 12 for Android is also now available on two different architectures: MIPs and Intel. That’s great news for those of you who own a low-cost Android tablet (think $100 on eBay) that run a MIPs processor, because finding quality apps that run on them can be a bit frustrating. Now, you’ll at least have access to a top-notch third-party browser. As far as Intel support goes, that’s probably more applicable to the handful of Medfield phones that have also been unveiled at MWC than it is to tablets.More at Operalast_img read more


11 Games That Looked Awesome At E3 But Ended Up Sucking

first_imgAnother E3 has come and gone, and we’re in our post-orgasmic state of anticipation for some of the next cycle’s hottest games to come out. New Metroid alone is enough to get us rowdy, but throw in Anthem from BioWare, the Shadow Of The Colossus HD remake and more and we’re just about losing our minds.Only one problem, though. We didn’t just fall off the turnip truck, and the only thing more ingrained into our hearts than E3 hype is E3 disappointment. No matter how good a game looks on the big screen, the end result sometimes has a hard time living up to our dreams. And sometimes studios botch seemingly can’t-miss games so hard that we forget why we were hyped at all.Come back to Earth with us as we spotlight eleven games from E3s past that promised to set the world on fire only to end up not being very good at all.Aliens: Colonial MarinesIt just takes one bad game to ruin a developer’s cred. At E3 in 2011, Aliens: Colonial Marines was a hot property. Gearbox rolled out a ten-minute hands-off demo that looked gorgeous, with cinematic lighting and enemies that used “sophisticated artificial intelligence.” When the actual game dropped in 2013, virtually nothing from that demo was anywhere to be seen. Whole chunks of cool-looking gameplay simply didn’t exist, and the rendering and environments were notably inferior to what had been shown two years before, leading some to conclude that they’d been sold a pre-rendered video as actual in-game footage.Too HumanSilicon Knights’ ambitious Too Human first showed at E3 in 1999, on the original PlayStation! In the time between that debut and its eventual release for the Xbox 360 in 2008, it went through plenty of changes. But the gaming public loved SK for their cult hit Eternal Darkness, so we kept the torch burning. That got harder in 2006 when the company put on a disastrous demonstration of the game in progress that ran at a framerate seemingly in the single digits. Fans still held out hope, and the press continued to push it as a God of War-killer. Unfortunately, when it finally released, it was a muddled, unfocused mess with a mere 10-hour playtime.SporeWill Wright’s much-ballyhooed life simulator first showed at E3 in 2005, where it was a gritty, realistic depiction of an organism’s struggle up the evolutionary ladder. Initially, the game had you proceeding through five different stages of biological and technological development, from a single cell to space exploration. By the time of the final release, though, that progression had contracted to just five stages, and the actual gameplay wasn’t anything to rave about. A cool experiment, but not the be-all and end-all of sims that we had been expecting.No Man’s SkyThe deck was stacked against No Man’s Sky from the beginning. An entire procedurally generated cosmos full of meaningful things to do, put together by a tiny indie team? It seemed too good to be true, but when the game debuted at E3 in 2014 the footage shown was enough to convince us. Massive sandworms! Fascinating foliage! Epic vistas! Sony obviously felt so strongly about it that it was the first indie they ever featured in their main stage presentation. And then the actual game released in 2016 and all the air was let out of the tire immediately. No Man’s Sky was big, sure, but it was also sinfully boring.DaikatanaWhen reporters came up to the massive booth that Ion Storm built for John Romero’s Daikatana at E3 in 1997, they were told flat-out that there was no way the game would make its scheduled release date of Christmas that year. In fact, it would miss the next two Christmases as well, with legendary Doom designer Romero alienating his team as the company fell apart around him. The initial rush of excitement for a story-driven shooter from one of the hottest designers on the planet collapsed as the game was revealed to be a clunky, dated experience with awful dialogue.The Bureau: XCOM DeclassifiedIf you ask hardcore PC gamers to list favorite franchises, the XCOM series will show up more often than not. The nails-hard tactical combat really forces you to consider all the elements on a battlefield to survive. So when 2K announced that they were “reimagining” the concept as a first-person shooter, enthusiasm was… muted. E3 of 2010 saw footage of the game shown for the first time to massive fan distaste. But wait! The team rejiggered some stuff, added the trademark “tactical pause,” and everybody was excited again at E3 in 2011. Then the game sank into development hell, transformed into a third-person shooter, got a new name, got set in the 1960s and generally fizzled out.Duke Nukem ForeverWhen a game is in development for fifteen years, there’s only so much you can expect. 3D Realms announced Duke Nukem Forever at E3 in 1997, and the next year showed the first gameplay footage, built in the Quake II engine. The project then entered a decade of screw-ups and re-debuts, including a 2001 trailer that had fans freaking out over how good it looked. By 2008, the studio was declaring E3 “irrelevant” and just not showing Duke at all. By the time the game limped to the finish line in 2011 with help from Gearbox, it was insanely dated and ridiculously buggy. The un-PC sexism that was Duke’s stock in trade didn’t fly too well anymore either.Mighty No. 9Keiji Inafune’s return to the side-scrolling action he pioneered with the Mega Man series was one of the first huge Kickstarter successes, and when he showed off gameplay for Mighty No. 9 at E3 in 2015, it looked really good. Fans waited with bated breath for the final game to drop, only to be horrendously disappointed in the end product. Not only were the graphics a serious downgrade, but the whole game seemed lackluster, full of hand-holding tutorials, randomized loot drops, and inconsistent challenge.Killzone 2One of the most notorious cases of E3 overhype ever seen came in 2005 with the trailer for Guerilla’s Killzone 2. The graphics on display claimed to represent the processing power of the new PS3, but the final game looked significantly less impressive. Guerilla vainly tried to defend their work before admitting that it was a “target render” based around what they expected the PS3 to be able to do at the time. It’s kind of unfair to put Killzone 2 on this list – the actual game was a perfectly fine first-person shooter and in all probability the best one the system ever saw, but we can’t forgive that kind of double-dealing.Doom 3When iD announced they were bringing back the granddaddy of first-person shooter franchises in 2001, people were pretty hyped. The initial topline for Doom 3 (which won raves from attendees at E3 in 2002) was simply a graphical upgrade of the original for modern players. No more clunky sprite enemies and right-angled walls – now you’d get all of the tense action with a fresh coat of paint. What gamers got in 2004, though, didn’t live up to that promise. Sure, the visuals were beautiful, but the complex interacting ecosystem of perfectly-tuned enemies was gone, replaced by jump scare “monster closets” and tons of ultra-dim environments.Virtual BoyNot a game but a system, Nintendo showed the Virtual Boy to the public at the very first E3 in 1995. The monochrome 3D device was the latest production of Game Boy creator Gunpei Yokoi and promised to take Nintendo quality into the third dimension. Convention attendees enjoyed their time with the launch titles but stepped away before the crippling eyestrain that would become the Virtual Boy’s signature could take effect. By the time of the next year’s show, the console was already an official flop and production had already been halted.last_img read more

Scientists revive dead pig brains with artificial blood

first_img 3 Originally posted April 17, 11 a.m. PTUpdated April 17, 2:40 p.m. PT: Adds additional information, adds Nature paper. Tags Scientists have used a special solution to keep pig brains “alive” after death. Jo Parsons/Getty Challenging the notion of death itself, researchers have successfully restored the cellular activity, blood vessel architecture and circulatory function of pig brains removed from the body, reanimating the organs four hours after death.It’s generally believed that once blood flow to the brain is restricted, its network of tiny vessels become clogged and cellular death is rapid. But researchers at Yale University, led by Nenad Sestan, took the brains of dead pigs from a meat packing plant and pumped a special, proprietary solution through the porcine grey matter. Connecting the brain to the solution four hours after death protected them from natural processes that would cause it to rapidly degrade and restored some, but not all, activity.The study, published in the journal Nature on April 17, describes the team’s preservation solution, dubbed BrainEx, which was able to preserve the structure of their test ungulates thinking box up to 10 hours after death — opening up a new way to study brain function. The researchers note that while the structure and cellular activity of the brain was protected, this did not bring the pigs back from the dead.”At no point did we observe the kind of organized electrical activity associated with perception, awareness, or consciousness,” said  Zvonimir Vrselja, a co-author on the paper, in a statement.”Clinically defined, this is not a living brain, but it is a cellularly active brain.”BrainEx is described as a “pulsatile perfusion system”, which means it intermittently pumps the researcher’s special solution through the brains vast architecture of blood vessels. The solution itself is made up of an acellular, hemoglobin-based formula that does not coagulate, which is warmed to normal body temperature.198344Neuronal cells (green) in the brain rapidly die after death if untreated (left), but the BrainEx technology helped keep them alive for 10 hours (right). Stefano G. Daniele/Zvonimir Vrselja/Sestan Laboratory/Yale School of Medicine The team compared the brains of dead pigs connected to the BrainEx system with those that did not receive the treatment, demonstrating the potential for the solution to restore the structure of small blood vessels, activate metabolism and reduce cell death.If your own brain immediately jumps to whether or not this would be possible in humans, there are a few caveats. First, the specially formulated solution — the “artificial blood” — that the team used does not contain the same makeup found in human blood. It also poses big ethical questions and forces us to reconsider the definitions of death.A year ago, MIT Technology Review discussed Sestan’s work with BrainEx and the idea of the “brain in a bucket”. Such an advance in technology may enable scientists to pump the BrainEx solution through postmortem human samples to study diseases and treatments that would otherwise be impossible to investigate in a living human. But the idea of re-animating the brain in a bucket outside the body asks questions of consciousness and feeling.If the technology advanced enough — and if there was electrical activity — would that be considered “thought” or “consciousness”? Or do we need to be connected to sensory organs for such sensation?Those questions will likely remain unanswered as the way forward, for now, focuses on applications such as stroke therapy or understanding how drug treatments might affect the way brains are wired.”The new technology opens up opportunities to examine complex cell and circuit connections and functions that are lost when specimens are preserved in other ways,” said Andrea Beckel-Mitchener, a team lead of the BRAIN Initiative which funded the research, in a statement. “It also could stimulate research to develop interventions that promote brain recovery after loss of brain blood flow, such as during a heart attack.” Crazy things to do with your body after you die (pictures) Share your voice Comments 15 Photos Sci-Techlast_img read more

When we are tickled, we laugh – a positive emotion – even though tickles are only a simple touch on the bodys surface and even if they may become uncomfortable after a while.To learn more about how ticklishness arise and what in the brain causes us to laugh, scientists have worked with rats, because these animals are very similar to humans in this area.In 1999, a study had already revealed that rats emit high pitched noises that resemble chuckles when scientists tickle them. In a research paper due to be published on 11 November 2016 in the journal Science, researchers have now identified the brain areas responsible for this phenomenon.Ticklishness is one of the most mysterious form of social touch, it is still poorly understood. What we set out to do, is understand what happens in the brains of humans and animals during tickles. In particular, we looked at what goes on in the brain of rats – who experience similar ticklishness to humans, says study author Michael Brecht, from Humboldt University in Berlin.Laughing at being tickledThe scientists tickled laboratory rats and their first observations confirmed what previous studies had found: tickles are rewarding for rats and elicit laughter. The rats didnt turn away from the hand that was tickling them, preferring to chase it and to play with it. They also performed unsolicited jumps which suggests they were experiencing some form of joy at being tickled.The scientists also recorded the noises made by the rats – typically these can only be heard at frequencies that the human ear cannot perceive – but here they were converted so that researchers could listen to them. The rodents appeared to make short calls at 50kHz, a frequency which in rats is associated with joy.During the tickling sessions, the researchers also monitored neuron activity in the somatosensory cortex. This region of the brain is particularly sensitive to touch and they believed it could be the key to understanding ticklishness.They measured the activity of neurons in this brain area and discovered they were activated when the rats were being tickled. This was correlated with greater laughter. The scientists also showed that activating these neurons artificially, without tickling the rats, produced the same reaction as when they were being tickled. This confirms the important role of the somatosensory cortex in ticklishness. Just like in humans however, the degree of joy felt at being tickled varied with the rats mood. When the little animals were anxious, laughter and neural firing during tickling were significantly reduced. Scientists now want to conduct more research to see how these findings may be applicable to humans.center_img Rats are ticklish just like humanslast_img read more

Agriculture Ministry surveys populations consumption of fruits vegetables seafood

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rican diet includes too much salt, processed food, experts say Costa Rica ranks healthiest country in Latin America Number of obese Ticos has almost quadrupled in four decades Costa Rica health officials confirm 2 new cases of H1N1 flu virus Costa Rica’s Agriculture and Livestock Ministry wants to know what’s filling Ticos’ bellies these days. The ministry launched a survey across the country this week to collect information on the population’s consumption of fruits, vegetables, fish and seafood.Staff from the ministry’s Agricultural Comprehensive Marketing Program (PIMA) are asking people what kinds of products they eat and how often in order to update the last “Consumer Trends Survey” conducted in 2013.PIMA officials estimate data collection and analysis will take three months. Results will be announced next year.The agency conducts the survey every two years and information is collected from adults and children. Surveys are conducted in homes and schools.Information collected in the study will be distributed to agencies in the education, health and business sectors.According to the last PIMA survey in 2013, preferred fruits among Costa Rica’s population were bananas, papaya, pineapple, oranges, apples and watermelons. The most consumed vegetables were tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, carrots and lettuce.Results showed that each Tico consumed an average of 156 kilograms of fruit per year, up from 136 kg recorded in 2009. Vegetable consumption also rose between 2009 and 2013, from 100.5 kg to 117 kg.As for fish and seafood, results in 2013 also showed an increase in consumption. The average Costa Rican ate 7.1 kg of fish that year, while in 2009 the figure was 5.3 kg. Each Tico on average ate 3.1 kg of seafood in 2013, up from the 2.1 kg recorded in 2009.Results from the new survey should reveal whether the trend towards eating more fresh food continues, or falls off, as some experts fear.Recent studies from both the University of Costa Rica’s (UCR) School of Nutrition and the Costa Rican Nutrition and Health Research Institute (INCIENSA) found that Ticos are increasingly choosing industrially-processed foods and drinks and fast food over healthier options.According to the Pan American Health Organization, Costa Rica this year ranks fifth in Latin America among countries with the highest consumption of processed food, behind Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay.Public Health Ministry research last year also found that obesity is increasingly common in Costa Rica. Obesity affects 21 percent of children between ages 5 and 12, 15 percent of teenagers and more than 54 percent of adults. Figures for diabetes and other chronic diseases linked to poor eating habits are also high among Ticos.UCR professor Raquel Arreola told The Tico Times last month that investigations in recent years show that cookies, candy and other processed snacks are more frequently found in school lunches than fruit or other healthier options.Recommended: Costa Rican diet includes too much salt, processed food, experts say Facebook Commentslast_img read more


Israels Barak hopes to extend political career

first_imgAssociated PressJERUSALEM (AP) – He’s been Israel’s prime minister, military chief, the country’s most decorated soldier and, for the past five years, its defense minister and moderate face to the West.Now Ehud Barak’s long and distinguished career might be coming to an end. He is unpopular with the public, and polls predict his Independence Party will barely make it into parliament in the Jan. 22 election, if at all. Most commentators predict his days in politics are numbered, but others say it may be too early to count the wily general out. Top Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist “There are many who have eulogized Ehud Barak, and most aren’t in politics anymore,” said Einat Wilf, a lawmaker in Barak’s party. “He’s the first who will tell you there are people who don’t like him. But we don’t have many leaders of his caliber, and people will consider that when they vote.”Barak, who did not respond to multiple interview requests, hopes to cling to the Defense Ministry whatever happens.If he doesn’t make it into parliament, he could still hang on to his job. Under Israeli law, Cabinet ministers besides the premier do not have to be elected lawmakers, and such appointments have been made in the past.“With so few potential leaders in the ring, he can still fill a role,” said Yossi Beilin, Barak’s former justice minister. “Therefore it is no surprise that Barak is still a great hope.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) He was crushed by hard-liner Ariel Sharon in a 2001 election, leaving behind a legacy of failed peacemaking with the Palestinians and Syria, despite unprecedented offers of sweeping territorial concessions, and a contentious decision to abruptly end Israel’s 18-year military occupation of south Lebanon. The overnight unilateral withdrawal from southern Lebanon created a vacuum that was quickly filled by the anti-Israel Hezbollah guerrilla group.Despite the dramatic collapse, Barak credited his wide-reaching offer to withdraw from nearly all of the West Bank and Gaza with exposing Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s essential rejection of the peace offer _ a view endorsed by President Bill Clinton.Barak easily recaptured the leadership of Labor in 2007, replacing civilian Defense Minister Amir Peretz, who led a botched war in Lebanon the previous summer. But he remained personally unpopular and his party, which had led Israel to independence and governed it for its first three decades, had lost its public appeal.After leading Labor to an all-time low of 13 of 120 parliamentary seats in the 2009 election, Barak enraged his dovish base by joining a coalition government led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who takes a hard line toward the Palestinians.

Is that how he wants to end his career? The only explanation is that he is a fighter, and a fighter doesn’t give up.”The 70-year-old Barak earned his reputation as a warrior through a military career that included commanding some of Israel’s most daring hostage release operations and raids.As commander of the elite Sayeret Matkal unit, Barak led the 1972 raid on a hijacked Sabena airliner on the ground in Israel with the commandos disguised as airline technicians. A photograph of Barak standing on the wing in white overalls as the freed hostages were disembarking has become part of Israeli lore.The following year, he led a commando operation in Beirut, sneaking into the city disguised as a woman.A war hero hailed as a brilliant military strategist, he was once seen as a worthy heir to his mentor, the assassinated Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. But in politics, Barak rose and fell quickly.In 1999, just four years after retiring from the military, Barak became prime minister. Political allies and foes alike considered him aloof and imperious, resenting the go-it-alone style that served him in the military. His term lasted less than two years _ the shortest ever for an elected Israeli premier _ his government crumbling with the outbreak of a Palestinian uprising that followed an unsuccessful summit with the Palestinian leader and U.S. president. This strategy does not seem to be working. A new poll published Monday in the Maariv daily predicted Barak’s Independence Party would not receive enough votes to win even a single seat in parliament. The survey, conducted by the TNS/Teleseker agency, questioned 500 people and had a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points.Similar polls in recent days had forecast Barak would win a maximum of three seats. Under Israel’s system of proportional representation, the number of votes a party receives determines how many seats it controls in parliament.Last week, Netanyahu announced plans for an alliance with a party led by his hard-line foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, creating a superbloc that appears positioned to coast to victory.That partnership has fueled speculation that centrist and dovish parties may also join forces. But even that does not bode well for Barak, who has rocky relations with all the major candidates and whose party would likely lose its already small base of supporters to a larger bloc.Leaders of that potential bloc, however, are new political faces generally considered not experienced enough for the top job.Barak’s party is hoping that his experience will be his salvation at a time when the region is churning with popular dissent, civil war and, perhaps, war with Iran. His party’s election ads depict him gazing sternly above the slogan: “Ehud Barak _ because we need a responsible adult here.” Israeli hard-liners didn’t like him any better, accusing him of undercutting the West Bank settlement movement by withholding construction approvals, clearing squatters from West Bank homes and encouraging Netanyahu to support a now-expired, U.S.-initiated slowdown in settlement construction.Barak eventually broke away from Labor to form his new party, Independence, with a few junior allies. The party never resonated with the public, but Barak himself retained his clout in the Netanyahu government, acting as the prime minister’s point man to the United States. There, he was welcomed as a moderating influence on Netanyahu’s hard line toward the Arab world and Iran’s nuclear program.Yet even that alliance _ dating back to the 1970s, when Barak was Netanyahu’s commander in the commando unit _ seems to have suffered with reports that the two are at odds over whether to defer to the U.S. on any attack against Iranian nuclear facilities. Barak’s detractors in Netanyahu’s Likud Party want him replaced and have begun criticizing him openly.Ahead of elections, Barak is trying to carve out his electoral place in the center, by staking out more dovish positions on Iran and separating religion and state.

Last season, with the Cleveland Browns, he made 22-of-29 field goals and all 28 of his extra points.The Cardinals are not working out kickers because they have a need there, as second-year pro Chandler Catanzaro has followed up an impressive rookie campaign by making eight of his first 13 field goals and 30 of 32 extra points this season. They are more or less seeing what kind of talent is out there in case something should happen, kind of covering their bases just in case.The same goes for Fields, who was with the Miami Dolphins last year and punted in two games for the New Orleans Saints this season, and Lanning, who was with the Browns last season before appearing in one game for the Chicago Bears this year.Arizona’s current punter, 26-year-old Drew Butler, is averaging 41 yards per kick, with a long of 55 and a net average of 34.5 yards. He has placed 10 punts inside the 20. The Arizona Cardinals will not be back on the practice field until Tuesday, but that does not mean they are not using their off week to try and get better.Or at least, they are spending a little time seeing what kind of talent is available should the need arise.
