Major breakthrough in Huntington Disease Canadian trial

first_imgThere is new hope for thousands of people diagnosed with Huntington Disease, as the results of a clinical drug trial with Canadian patients were announced on Monday.Huntington has been described as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS all rolled into one debilitating condition. It attacks the brain, and can affect a range of abilities, from motor skills to one’s connection to reality.“It basically means that parts of their brain really stop working,” says Dr. Rachel Harding, a biomedical scientist at the University of Toronto. “It’s really quite a horrific disease.”The news has been more than 10 years in the making, with 46 patients in the UK, Germany and Canada in the initial trial.“I am cautiously optimistic that this could not only halt the progression of the disorder, but lead to an improvement in symptoms,” says Dr. Blair Leavitt, research director at the Centre for Huntington Disease at the University of British Columbia.The very first patient was treated in Vancouver in September 2015.“This is the first time that a treatment in people has been shown to be safe and has shown that it alters the levels of abnormal proteins that causes Huntington Disease,” says Leavitt, who is one of the international researchers involved.Those with the disease carry a mutation in the huntingtin gene, which results in the production of a toxic protein that attacks the brain and nervous system.“There are not many good days when you have a neurodegenerative disorder,” says Dr. Karim Nader, a neuroscientist at McGill University. He also suffers from Huntington Disease, which has affected his motor skills and speech.“It effects every aspect of our lives,” says Nader. “Each time you try to board a plane, to come back to a conference or go to a conference, each time the border agents are convinced that you must have been drinking.”Huntington is a genetic disease — children who have a parent with Huntington’s have a 50/50 chance of inheriting it. The consequences are also fatal, with many dying early from a list of complications including pneumonia and heart failure.“We’ve adanced into a new era,” says Leavitt. “We’re now using all of the information that we’ve gathered over the last 20 years, and really targeting the causes of this disease.”The next step is phase three of the trial. Researchers hope it will prove the treatment, which is an injection into the spine, can stop the disease in its tracks.Though there’s no word on when the next stage will begin in Canada, CityNews is told it will be announced in the very near future. When it gets started, Nader says he’ll  be taking part.“It’s a blessing,” says Nader. “If you believe in evolution, you wouldn’t say it’s a miracle, so let’s say it’s a genetic miracle.”last_img read more

Trafficking victims should have legal redress and compensation – UN rights expert

“In many States, trafficked persons do not receive remedies in a holistic manner as a matter of right, but are only provided with ad hoc measures which are predominantly aimed at facilitating criminal investigation,” said Joy Ngozi Ezeilo, the UN Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, especially women and children.She criticised such measures as temporary residence permits, which are granted on the condition that the victims cooperate with law enforcement authorities.“Trafficked persons are rarely known to have received compensation, as they are often not provided with the information, legal and other assistance and residence status necessary to access it,” said Ms. Ezeilo when she presented her report on the right to effective remedy for trafficked person to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.“At worst, many trafficked persons are wrongly identified as irregular migrants, detained and deported before they have an opportunity to even consider seeking remedies,” she added.In her report, Ms. Ezeilo recommends that States “ensure that adequate procedures are in place to enable quick and accurate identification of trafficked persons” to prevent any misidentification of trafficked persons as irregular migrants, which often leads to detention and deportation, effectively precluding a chance to seek compensation.“States should ensure that trafficked persons are equipped with access to information, free legal aid and other necessary assistance such as interpretation services, and regular residence status during the duration of any legal proceedings,” Ms. Ezeilo recommended.She also advised States to provide trafficked persons with temporary or permanent residence permits “where a safe return to the country of origin is not guaranteed or a return would not otherwise be in the best interests of the trafficked person for reasons related to his or her personal circumstances, such as the loss of citizenship or cultural and social identity in the country of origin.” 1 June 2011Victims of human trafficking have the right to seek legal redress and compensation for the violation of their rights, a United Nations expert said today, voicing concern that those trafficked were often treated as “instruments” of criminal investigation, rather than people with rights. read more

Past losses bring camaraderie fuel for Ohio State football team

Senior tight end Jeff Heuerman answers questions from the media during the 2014 Big Ten Media Days July 29 in Chicago.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorCHICAGO –– Coming off back-to-back losses to close out the 2013 season, the 2014 Ohio State Buckeye football team is excited to get back to work.OSU senior tight end Jeff Heuerman said the losses to Michigan State and Clemson that finished what was shaping up to be a historic season have become lessons learned.“You just got to learn from your mistakes,” Heuerman said. “You can take a positive out of any situation. We have the experience now that we didn’t have last year going into the Big Ten Championship Game and that we didn’t have going to a BCS bowl.”OSU coach Urban Meyer said he hopes his team will use the losses as motivation.“As I walked off the field, I knew something was wrong,” Meyer said of the loss against Clemson. “We were not very good in certain areas. The amount of effort…it should show dividends for this year.”Heuerman, along with senior quarterback Braxton Miller, had only experienced postseason football once prior to the 2013 Big Ten Championship game, which was a 24-16 loss to the Florida Gators in the 2012 Gator Bowl to end the 2011 season.OSU went undefeated in 2012 but served a one-year bowl ban handed down by the NCAA following the highly-publicized tattoo scandal that involved former OSU quarterback Terrelle Pryor and former coach Jim Tressel.Heuerman said the Buckeyes have and will continue to use the losses to MSU and Clemson as fuel in 2014.“We have used it in the offseason a lot,” Heuerman said. “(We will) use it this year and obviously try to take the positive out of it.”Miller echoed his tight end’s comments.“When something goes bad you have to turn it into a positive,” Miller said. “Everybody has to get together and make something happen for the coming year. I have seen a lot of guys maturing more and they are ready to perform this year.”It seemed only fitting that Miller and Heuerman had nearly identical comments, as they were a part of the same 2011 freshman class.“We always hang out, he lives right around the corner from me,” Miller said. “If we want to go eat somewhere, I will come over there or pick him up.”The on-the-field connection between Miller and Heuerman was important for the Buckeye offense last season as the combo connected three times for scores in 2013, including touchdowns against Michigan and Clemson.Heuerman said that while he enjoys scoring, he does other things with just as much enthusiasm.“I was fortunate, we had a lot of offensive playmakers and sometimes you luck out,” Heuerman said of his late success last season. “I don’t pay attention to that as much — I get just as excited about making a big block as making a big catch.”Heuerman also said he does not get upset when he does not get the ball.“The quarterback position in this offense is like no other position and he has so much more going on than I do,” Heuerman said of Miller. “They say tight ends have to do a lot? I mean he’s got almost twice as much.”With Miller’s heavy workload, Meyer said he and his staff have to do a better job of managing their star quarterback.“We try to protect him, surround him and maybe come up with a good scheme to get the ball out of his hands maybe a little quicker,” Meyer said Monday. “Those are all the things that we address.”Meyer has about a month to prepare his quarterback and the rest of his team before they begin their 2014 regular season against Navy Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md. read more

Ohio State softball fights for another day defeating Marist in NCAA tournament

OSU sophomore Taylor White (21) and junior Shelby Hursh (19) in a game against Penn State on April 6 at Buckeye Field. Credit: Lantern File PhotoJust five hours after its defeat at the hands of the Arizona Wildcats, the Ohio State softball team recouped and avoided elimination in the Knoxville regional at the NCAA tournament, advancing to Sunday.OSU only collected two hits in its first contest in the late morning of Saturday, but the bats came to life in a 6-1 victory over Marist, eliminating the Red Foxes from the NCAA tournament.For much of the game, sophomore outfielder Taylor White led the OSU offense to an early lead. In the first inning, the Buckeyes had a runner on second and third with two outs when White delivered a two-run triple to put OSU ahead 2-0.In her next at-bat, White launched a homerun to left-center field off second-team All-MAAC redshirt junior pitcher Jessica Van Alphen for a 3-0 lead. Van Alphen had a record of 10-3 and an ERA of 1.98 coming into the game.The second-team All-Big Ten honoree, White, gave a lift to a struggling offense who only totaled one run combined in its last two games. White has 32 RBIs this season.Freshman Emily Clark and first-team All-Big Ten junior infielder Alex Bayne hit back-to-back homeruns in the fifth. Bayne’s team-leading 19th homer came off MAAC pitcher of the year Jayne Oberdorf.Handed the loss in the first game, Buckeye junior pitcher Shelby Hursh was back in the circle for coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly’s squad against Marist and displayed confidence the team expects from its ace. Hursh tossed her ninth complete game while surrendering just four hits, one unearned run and striking out seven Red Foxes. She picked up her 16th win in her junior campaign.Hursh likely has been OSU’s best pitcher all season. After pitching two games on Saturday, it’s unclear whether the right-handed Hursh will be ready to go on Sunday.OSU will need stellar performances up and down the lineup on Sunday when the Buckeyes play an elimination game at noon against host, 13th-ranked Tennessee. The winner plays Arizona in the regional finals. read more

Ohio State softball topped by No 13 Tennessee eliminated from NCAA tournament

The starter for Tennessee, freshman Matty Moss, lasted only one inning and was pulled for senior Erin Gabriel after giving up a single to lead off the bottom of the second inning. Moss was dominant for Tennessee as she delivered four scoreless innings. She allowed only three hits and two walks while striking out eight. Members of the OSU softball team huddle outside the dugout during a game against Maryland. Credit: Lantern File PhotoA day after keeping its NCAA championship hopes alive, the Ohio State softball team was unable to pull off the upset against 13th-ranked Tennessee and has been officially eliminated from the tournament. After delivering a winning complete game performance on Saturday against Marist, Shelby Hursh was unable to replicate the same success in another game facing potential elimination. Hursh lasted only 1.2 innings, surrendering six runs (all earned) on the strength of five hits and four walks while striking out three. Tennessee, however, was not done scoring as it would add a few in the top of the second inning. With the bases loaded, senior Lexi Overstreet doubled to straight away centerfield to clear the bases and chase OSU junior starting pitcher Shelby Hursh from the game. After a walk and a hit by pitch loaded the bases again for the Volunteers, junior outfielder Shaliyah Geathers hit what at first appeared to be an inside-the-park home run that plated three more runs, but she was ruled out after umpires said she did not touch home plate. The first inning started off just the way the Volunteers drew it up. After three of its first four batters reached base safely with a single, Tennessee would plate two runs following back-to-back walks to its fifth and sixth hitters. In the top of the fifth inning, Volunteers sophomore infielder Meghan Gregg hit a two-run home run to left field to put Tennessee above the eight-run run-rule threshold. A scoreless bottom half of the fifth ensured that this game would end at five innings, giving Tennessee the 10-1 victory. The Buckeyes responded quickly as junior Alex Bayne came around to score off redshirt sophomore shortstop Maddy McIntyre’s single to right field. That was the lone run scored for OSU in this one. Ohio State softball finished its season with a 34-19-1 record. read more

How to keep the power on during an outage

first_imgMany items provide backup power for electronics, using three letters you’ve heard before: USB. Take this small battery storage device with you in a power pinch.Everett Townsend: “You charge it up before, and it just stores that charge, so that when you need to charge your phone, just take that out, plug it in your phone, and you’re good to go.”A power inverter can keep a laptop up and running. This one plugs into a car’s lighter socket and for even more juice, an 800 Watt inverter can power two items at once by drawing current directly from the car’s battery.Everett Townsend: “This is kind of nice because you could be sitting there, maybe depending on the wattage again, have a little TV, maybe a little fan.”For just under $100, this power station can be a huge help after a hurricane or in any emergency.Everett Townsend: “This thing is multi-tool. It actually will jump your battery in your car if you go dead. It has a compressor in there to inflate tires, plus it is a battery station.”Everett Townsend: “Now we have lights.” Speaking of lights, instead of fumbling around for a flashlight during a storm, this LED light plugs right into the wall at home. When the power goes out, it goes on.Everett Townsend: “It’s dark in the house, this thing is going to turn on by itself, and you’ll be able to find your way around in a darkened house.”Danielle Knox: “Of course, you may want a little more than light in the aftermath of a hurricane. Generators can keep you connected to some — or all — of the comforts of home.”Robert Biscardi, Reliable Power Systems: “Some people want, ‘Just give me a light, a refrigerator, and a room air-conditioner,’ and then you have people that say, ‘I want my electric toothbrush to run.’”If you decide on a fully-automatic standby generator, experts can help you choose which one is best based on things like your home’s square footage, and the type of fuel it will use, like natural gas or propane. A popular size is a 20-kilowatt unit.Robert Biscardi: “Anything from a 1,500; 2,000; 3,000 square foot home, up to two ACs, it’ll handle that size home no problem.”Just remember, permits are required, so plan early if you want one installed. And finally, solar power is a cool way to stay charged up. Plug your cellphone’s USB cable directly into this small, portable solar panel. The sun, doing all the work to keep you connected once the storm clouds pass.Danielle Knox, 7News.THE HOME POWER SOLUTIONS:www.myreliablepower.com6451 East Rogers Circle #2Boca Raton, FL 33487(561) 441-5995 Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. WSVN — If a storm strikes near your home, you could be without power for days, maybe even weeks. But you don’t have to feel powerless. Danielle Knox generates good ideas on how to get Power to the People.A little bit of juice can go a long way after a storm. The sight after Superstorm Sandy of people gathered around a makeshift power station, charging cell phones serves as reminder.Everett Townsend, The Home Depot: “We’re in a communication world, and let me tell you something, people like to keep in contact, they like to make sure their family and friends are safe.”From your iPhone to your whole home, the key is knowing your power wants and needs if a hurricane knocks South Florida off the grid.Everett Townsend: “These items are ideal because they’re convenient, and they’re easy to store, and they don’t cost a lot of money.”Starting small, if your cellphone battery is running low, there are boosts on a budget.Everett Townsend: “A two-hour extended charge, for your cell phone use, this one is under $9, and it’s great to have just for an emergency case. last_img read more

Mamata becoming PM would be in nations interest Mahant Gyan Das

first_imgSAGAR ISLAND: Mahant Gyan Das, the chief priest of Kapil Muni Ashram in Sagar Island, wants to see Mamata Banerjee as the Prime Minister of India. He was addressing a gathering at Sagar Island here on Friday afternoon.He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is dividing the society on the basis of religion and is inciting one community against the other. Mahant has been visiting Sagar Island ahead of the holy dip by the pilgrims. “The Prime Minister is dividing the society on the basis of caste, creed and religion and inciting one group against the other. This is not our culture. Our culture teaches us to maintain peace and harmony. People belonging to different religions are staying in India for generations and any attempt to divide the society will be detrimental. If our Didi (Banerjee) becomes the Prime Minister there will be peace, prosperity and development and people in the country will live happily,” the chief priest said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeHe also said that BJP is bringing in Ram to do politics. “Whenever there is an election they say that Ram Mandir will be constructed just to win votes. They said this in 2014 and once the government was formed no attempt was made to construct the temple. If voted to power, Didi will construct Ram temple herself,” he added. Das had voiced his protest against the Narendra Modi government on Wednesday as well, saying that it has failed to deliver its promise regarding the construction of Ram Mandir. The chief priest came down heavily on BJP, saying that the party ‘has been using Lord Ram for narrow politics’. The Chief Minister is on a visit to Gangasagar to oversee the arrangements ahead of the Mela. During her trip to the district she met the priest and held a media interaction on Wednesday. “Didi becoming the Prime Minister is in the nation’s interest. Ram Mandir would be constructed if someone like her becomes Prime Minister. It is the desire of the sages and saints of India to see Ram temple. BJP only promises it before elections but forgets later,” Das said.last_img read more

Care for your skin before beauty sleep

first_imgSleep is important for your beauty, but so is a proper skincare regime. Use a highly restorative night cream, which will help moisturise and protect your skin while you take rest, say experts. Face cleansers: Regular skin cleansing at night is critical to maintaining a healthy skin. A clean and dirt-free face helps keep pores open and aids the skin to breathe better. Restore the skin’s natural balance by using cleansers made with Ayurvedic ingredients such as aloe vera, turmeric, honey that leave the skin clean, hydrated and nourished.Moisturise: Moisturising should be an essential step in your night skincare regime. It helps in repairing your skin, keeping it soft and prevents it from sagging. Apply a cream that has natural and nourishing ingredients like kokum butter and honey, especially for hands and feet before going to sleep at night.Under eye gel: The area under the eyes is the first to show signs of ageing. Apply an under-eye gel every night before going to bed to reduce puffiness, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes.Lip balms: An effective lip balm keeps moisture in and protects lips from dryness and cracking. Pick a lip balm that is made with natural ingredients such as ghee and almond oil, that will help heal, condition and keep your lips soft and supple.Dark circles make your skin tone look uneven. Avacado and almonds are not only good for your health but for your eyes too, apply their oils and wake up with puffy-less eyes and reduced dark circle; with regular application, say bye-bye to them.Sleep on silk pillow: A silk night suit is an excellent choice but a silk pillowcase will be even better. Silk is easier on your face and your hair, as it reduces split ends and gives you a crease-free face in the morning.Let your skin breathe in and breathe out: One mistake most people make is sleeping with their make-up on. Not only is it unhealthy for your skin but there is a big chance that it might lead to breakouts and skin dehydration. It is extremely essential to remove your make-up before sleeping for a rejuvenated skin.CTM process: After you are done with cleansing and toning, use a light moisturiser for nourishment, then use nourishing serum and a night cream post that. For night, you need products with more nourishing ingredient and no SPF involved.Pamper your hands and feet: Beauty is not only about your face. It is achieved when the entire body feels great. Give your hands and feet the care they deserve by moisturising them before hitting the bed. Nourishment is essential for a happy and healthy body.last_img read more

Uber Copters 200 Flights Launch in NYC on July 9th

first_imgJune 6, 2019 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Uber’s autonomous flying taxis aren’t ready to take flight yet, but according to a report in the New York Times, it will offer air transit starting July 9th. Uber Copter will be available in New York City first, to Uber Rewards members who’ve obtained Platinum and Diamond status. Unsurprisingly, the rides will have dynamic pricing that changes based on demand, but the average ride will cost between $200 and $225, according to Uber Elevate’s Nikhil Goel.However, unlike Uber’s car service, it has a predetermined route that runs between a location near the Staten Island Ferry in Manhattan and Kennedy Airport with a flight time of about eight minutes. Uber hasn’t publicly announced the service itself, but according to the article, flights will have space for up to five passengers (don’t expect to bring along much baggage) with two pilots, all operated by the Heliflite charter service.The service is also… short, by anyone’s imagination. According to Uber, it’s the company’s first “multi-modal” option, where this eight-minute helicopter flight is connected to taxi rides each side.Update 06/06/2019 6:35AM ET: Engadget added a statement from the head of Uber Elevate, Eric Allison:”Uber Copter offers the first real demonstration of the Elevate experience. We’ve built Uber Copter to provide us with insight and real-world experience as we continue to lay the foundation for Uber Air. This is Uber’s first multi-modal option, integrating an 8-minute helicopter flight with an Uber trip on both ends with a single tap of a button. Uber Rewards Platinum and Diamond members will get the first opportunity to try this new fast and seamless way to get between Manhattan and JFK.” 2 min read Enroll Now for Free This story originally appeared on Engadget This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more

Philippines holds drills with US Japan near disputed sea

first_img Sponsored Stories PUERTO PRINCESA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippines launched separate naval exercises with the United States and Japan on Monday on an island province facing the disputed South China Sea, displaying its security alliances amid an increasingly tense territorial rift with Beijing.Philippine military officials, however, stressed that the weeklong exercises were aimed at enhancing disaster-response readiness and were not directed at any country or linked to the dispute. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Comments   Share   New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like He noted that U.S. and Filipino forces jointly responded in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation in the central Philippines.The drills will also “ensure that our alliance with the Philippines remains strong, vibrant, and ready to contribute to the greater stability and peace of the region,” Merz said.Territorial disputes involving China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei have flared in recent years. Last year, tensions rose further when China began constructing artificial islands on previously submerged reefs mostly in the disputed Spratly Islands.
