first_imgL’addiction à la cocaïne soignée par un traitement au laser ?Des scientifiques américains ont réussi à traiter des rats souffrant d’addiction à la cocaïne en exposant leur cerveau à des impulsions laser. Cela fait plusieurs années que les chercheurs tentent de développer un traitement qui permettrait de contrer les effets de la cocaïne et donc de soigner une potentielle addiction. Pour cela, certains se sont tournés vers le développement d’un vaccin qui aurait montré, selon les études, des résultats prometteurs. Néanmoins, aujourd’hui, c’est une toute autre technique qu’ont dévoilée des scientifiques américains dans la revue Nature.Selon leur étude, ils auraient réussi à réduire l’addiction à la cocaïne de rats en exposant leur cerveau à des impulsions laser. En effet, chez les humains comme chez les rongeurs, la dépendance compulsive à cette drogue peut réduire l’activité du cortex préfrontal, une région cérébrale importante dans le contrôle des impulsions et la prise de décision. Aussi, l’équipe du National Institute on Drug Abuse (qui fait partie des National Institutes of Health) a eu l’idée de transformer cette zone en interrupteur. Une addiction réduite grâce à la stimulation des neurones Pour cela, ils ont implanté dans les neurones du cortex pré-frontal de 100 rats des protéines sensibles à la lumière appelées rhodopsine. Celles-ci sont capables de “s’allumer” et de “s’éteindre” lorsqu’elles sont exposées à de la lumière laser et donc de stimuler l’activité de la zone où elles se trouvent. Au cours de l’expérience, les rongeurs avaient accès à un levier qui, s’ils appuyaient dessus, leur délivrait une dose de cocaïne. Les chercheurs ont ainsi exposé les rats dépendants à des impulsions laser et ont observé ce qu’il se passait. Ils ont alors constaté que les rongeurs accros appuyaient de moins en moins sur le levier jusqu’à ne plus du tout l’utiliser lorsque les neurones étaient stimulés. “Quand nous avons allumé la lumière laser dans la région prélimbique du cortex préfrontal, la recherche compulsive de cocaïne a disparu”, explique Antonello Bonci qui a dirigé les recherches. Mais le plus intéressant est que la méthode a fonctionné dans les deux sens : les rats accros étaient moins dépendants tandis que chez les rats sains, le fait d'”éteindre” les neurones a provoqué l’apparition d’une addiction à la cocaïne.Une approche applicable à l’humain ? D’après les chercheurs, ces résultats prometteurs suggèrent que viser le cortex préfrontal pourrait aussi être une technique efficace pour traiter l’addiction chez l’humain. Bonci et ses collègues prévoient ainsi d’ores et déjà de mener une étude clinique pour voir si cette approche pourrait fonctionner. Toutefois, les scientifiques utiliseront une technique bien moins invasive : pour remplacer le laser, ils pensent utiliser des aimants qui seront placés sur le crâne pour stimuler le cerveau (stimulation magnétique transcrâniale).À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”C’est la partie la plus excitante selon moi. D’habitude, il y a un délai de 15 ans entre le jour où vous découvrez quelque chose et celui où vous pouvez le tester chez l’humain”, a expliqué dans une interview téléphonique à The Verge, Antonello Bonci. D’après le chercheur, les études cliniques incluront probablement plusieurs sessions d’expériences avec des personnes addicts à la cocaïne. Ceci devrait permettre de voir si l’activité du cortex préfrontal peut être restaurée pour les aider à guérir de l’addiction. Une approche à explorer davantage Cependant, certaines questions demeurent quant à l’efficacité de cette technique : par exemple, la durée et la fréquence du traitement nécessaires pour éliminer complètement l’envie de drogue. “Nous ne savons pas si l’addiction est guérie. Tout ce que nous savons c’est que lorsque nous donnons un certain niveau d’activité au cortex préfrontal, l’envie de prendre de la cocaïne disparait. Mais nous ne pouvons pas prouver que c’est parti pour toujours”, a précisé Bonci qui entend donc bien poursuivre les recherches.  Le 5 avril 2013 à 13:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more


first_imgBy Sulayman BahGambia Amateur Boxing Association (GBA) congress has been differed with a new date yet to be named as uncertainty hovers amid power struggle.Pa Alieu Jallow –incumbent president – is vying with Sabou Conteh for the association’s hot-seat.The furore began last year July when seven aggrieved boxing clubs went ahead to call for an extraordinary congress at the Kairaba Beach Hotel electing Sambou Conteh unopposed as president.Conteh, the protesting clubs said, will be incumbent Pa Alieu Jallow’s replacement whom they accused for what they called the ‘sport’s snail-pace’ progress in the country.Hours after news of his alleged replacement filtered out, Jallow denied being impeached, insisting he’s still boss of the association.The NSC, believed to have been invited to witness the Kairaba congress but did not show up, reacted, refusing to recognise Conteh as the organisation’s new top dog.The situation triggered a division with delegates, including some notable national boxers, split over the two leaderships as the chaos raged on.A congress was expected to take place last Sunday on the orders of the National Sports Council.However, some delegates intimate to Foroyaa Sport that they’re yet to be written by the council or the current boxing president about going to the polls.The saga has left uncertainty hovering.last_img read more

first_imgBenghazi: A bomb-laden vehicle exploded Saturday outside a shopping mall in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi, killing at least three UN staff members, a spokesman for the United Nations secretary-general said. The attack came even as the country’s warring sides said they accepted a cease-fire proposed by the UN aimed at halting combat in the capital Tripoli during an upcoming Muslim holiday. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us Health officials said the blast took place outside Arkan Mall in the Hawari neighbourhood, where people were gathering for shopping a day before the Eid al-Adha holiday begins. The Benghazi municipal council said the attack targeted a convoy for the UN Support Mission in Libya. The site of the attack is close to offices of the mission in Libya. Two of the dead hailed from Libya and Fuji, and the blast wounded nine people, according to health officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters. Stéphane Dujarric, a spokesman for UN Secretary-General António Guterres, said in a statement that three UN workers were among the wounded. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us “The Secretary-General extends his deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wishes a swift recovery to all the injured. He calls on the Libyan authorities to spare no effort in identifying and swiftly bringing to justice the perpetrators of this attack,” Dujarric said. He also said the secretary-general urged “all parties to respect the humanitarian truce during Eid al Adha and return to the negotiating table to pursue the peaceful future the people of Libya deserve.” The UN special envoy for Libya, Ghassan Salame, condemned what he called a “cowardly attack.” “This attack will not discourage us, nor will it prevent us from carrying on with our duties to bring about peace, stability and prosperity to Libya and its people,” he said in a statement. Advertise With Us Salame said the commitment of the parties of the UN-proposed cease-fire in Tripoli “sends an irrevocable message that the blood of Libyans, and UN staff, … was not shed in vain in this heinous explosion.” The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting late Saturday afternoon on the situation. Assistant Secretary-General for Africa Bintou Keita told members the attack took place in an area “supposedly under full security control” of the Libyan National Army of Gen. Khalifa Hifter. She said the attack “highlights the continued danger of terrorism across the country,” and it confirms that the latest hostilities are creating a vacuum “easily exploited by radical elements that strive on chaos and violence.” Keita said the UN doesn’t intend to evacuate from Libya and she expressed hope that both sides will abide by their commitment to the Eid cease-fire. Footage circulated online shows what appears to be burnt UN-owned vehicles as thick smoke billows into the sky. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came just a month after two bomb-laden vehicles went off in Benghazi, the stronghold for the self-styled LNA. The July attack killed at least four people and wounded 33 others.last_img read more

The stock was trading at Rs 203.25 at around 12.13 pm, down Rs 102.30, or 33.48 percent, on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).The company had declared bonus shares in the ratio of 1:2 (one bonus share for every two shares held) in October. Almost all the state-run companies in the oil and gas space, such as Oil India, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL) have declared bonus issue this year.The BSE Sensex was trading at 26,545, down 58 points, while the NSE Nifty was at 8,165, a loss of 17 points.Top Sensex losers apart from ONGC were Sun Pharma, Tata Motors and ITC, while top gainers included TCS, Power Grid Corporation and Infosys. The US Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike of 25 basis points did not have much of an impact, contrary to expectations by analysts.The rate hike by the Federal Reserve is often followed by volatility in Indian stock and currency markets as a result of selling by foreign institutional investors (FIIs/FPIs) but the trend is reversed subsequently.”After 2006 the U.S. Federal Reserve raised rates on December 16 last year, by 25bps, which was followed by a month of volatility and weakness in Indian equities with foreign portfolio investors pulling money out from both equity and debt markets and rupee weakening despite these outflows. However, the losses were reversed in six months with FPI’s returning to the equity market while they continued to sell in the debt market,” Geojit BNP Paribas said in a note on Thursday.The Indian rupee opened at 67.76 to the US dollar on Thursday after closing the previous session at 67.44 levels.last_img read more


first_imgMadhumitha is out of Bigg Boss Tamil 3.PR HandoutMadhumitha has finally broken her silence over her abrupt termination from Bigg Boss Tamil 3. The actress has reportedly said that she decided to harm herself to prove her love to Tamil Nadu.According to a report on Indiaglitz website, Madhumitha has said that the issue occurred during a task when she said that Varun Deva (the god of rains) is a Kannadiga and as it rains only in Karnataka while ignoring Tamil Nadu. Sherin raised objection over her comment.The report adds that Madhumitha too was unhappy with Sherin, who hails from Bengaluru, for raising the issue about her comment and the argument started between them. The inmates, apart from Cheran and Kasturi, backed Sherin.At the heat of the moment, the inmates questioned whether the 41-year old can prove her life for Tamil Nadu which triggered Madhumitha to attempt for suicide by cutting her wrist. Also, the actress has pointed out at Kavin’s body-shaming comment on her height, the report further adds.Madhumitha was evicted last Saturday, 17 August, taking the fans of the Vijay TV’s show by a surprise. Although it was revealed that the actress had harmed herself physically out of anger, host Kamal Haasan said that she had broken an important rule of the reality show, forcing the channel to send her out of the show.However, the channel did not air the incident nor gave a detailed explanation about the reason why she took the extreme step in Bigg Boss Tamil 3 house.Tamil Nadu and Karnataka had been at loggerheads for decades over the Cauvery water sharing issue. It looks like the channel refused to air as it is a sensitive issue and might have to face public backlash over the issue from both the states if the incident and comments aired on TV.Meanwhile, Madhumitha has denied the reports, which said that Vijay TV had filed a complaint against her, for threatening to commit suicide if it fails to clear her dues.last_img read more


first_imgBob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneFormer state Senator and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis speaks to Planned Parenthood supporters at the Capitol in Austin on April 5, 2017.Almost four years after Democrat Wendy Davis’ failed bid for governor, the Texas Ethics Commission has fined her campaign and Battleground Texas for delayed reporting of $3.4 million in political contributions.Neither the campaign nor the political organization admitted doing anything wrong, and the commission conceded the situation “is not explicitly addressed by Texas law.” Nevertheless, the Davis campaign and Battleground Texas each agreed to pay a $3,000 fine.In separate orders from the commission posted Tuesday (here and here), both Davis, on behalf of her gubernatorial campaign, and Battleground Texas, a group that launched in 2013 to help elect Democrats, said they had not “violated any provision of the Election Code and at all times properly reported all of its activities in a manner that is transparent and open to the public. However, for the sake of resolving this matter, without further proceedings, the respondent accepts the Commission’s proposal of resolution without any admission of wrongdoing of any kind.”Working together in the 2014 campaign, the groups employed an unusual fundraising arrangement, collecting political contributions through the “Texas Victory Committee — a Joint Project of Wendy Davis for Governor Inc and Battle Ground Texas.” That outfit — TVC — split its spending and its proceeds evenly between Davis and Battleground.During the second half of 2013, Davis and Battleground hosted “at least eight joint fundraisers,” the commission said in its orders. TVC reported those contributions and the fundraising costs in its January 2014 report. But it didn’t transfer those contributions to Davis and Battleground until March of that year.Both reported the transfers in their July 2014 reports.The commission said the contributions should have been reported six months earlier, when the donors’ checks were cashed. “The effective control over TVC and the donor’s intent support the finding that Battleground and Davis PAC constructively accepted the funds when received by TVC,” the commission said in its orders. As a result, it said, each got “about $1.7 million” that should have been reported in January and wasn’t reported for six more months.It caused a fair amount of confusion during the campaign, creating the impression for some that donors had given twice as much as they had since their contributions showed up under their names in the TVC report in January 2014 and then again in the Battleground and Davis reports in July 2014.That said, the commission said the reports filed by the two “evinced a good-faith attempt by the respondent to comply with Texas disclosure laws for a somewhat complicated and novel fundraising operation not explicitly contemplated by Texas law.” It was clear, TEC wrote, that money given to TVC was bound for Davis and Battleground, that TVC reported its contributions and expenditures, and that the other two eventually reported what they received.Neither Davis nor Battleground “admits or denies” those facts and conclusions, the commission wrote, but they agreed to pay a $3,000 “sanction necessary to deter future violations” and to let the TEC post the orders.

A click on Settings > Updates > Check Now runs a manual check for updates right away; Paint.net should pick up the new version and install it when that is done.Paint.net 4.1.5. features performance improvements. The last version of the application improved application start significantly and it seems that work on improving performance of the application continues in this version of the program.The developer of Paint.net added support for CPU instruction sets to the application which improves rendering performance by up to 50%Optimized a portion of the rendering engine for newer CPU instruction sets (SSE2, SSSE3, AVX2). Depending on zoom level, CPU type, and other factors, rendering throughput has been improved by 10-50%.Whether you will see improvements in this regard depends on the processor of the computer the image editor is run on, the zoom level, and other unnamed factors.Rotate operations should be near instant in the new version next to that. You can rotate any image that you loaded in the image editor either by selecting Image and then one of the Rotate options, or via the shortcuts Ctrl-H, Ctrl-G, and Ctrl-J.I ran a couple of tests with 10 Megabyte images in PNG and JPG format, and rotate did indeed process these instantly.Image -> Rotate should now complete almost instantly.Last but not least, Paint.net 4.1.5 includes optimizations that effect plugins may benefit from. Performance of these plugins should improve in the new version.Some performance optimizations for code that uses the indexers on the Surface class, which should improve effect plugin performance.Paint.net 4.1.5 includes a number of fixes next to that which you can check out on the roadmap; at least one crash issue fixed in the Store version.We followed Paint.net’s development for a long time.

In addition, it can be used for specialized contrast procedures that record both fluoroscopy and radiography sequences and interventional procedures. The DRX-Excel Plus system is configured with a table and a tube in one system. An optional integrated flat panel detector produces high-resolution images for general radiography as well as fluoroscopic sequences. Franciscan Health Rensselaer in Rensselaer, Ind., recently purchased a new Carestream DRX-Excel Plus R/F system and a Carestream DRX-Evolution Plus to deliver rapid access to high-quality X-ray images that help physicians assess and treat patients at the critical access hospital. “Both systems represent major upgrades to our current equipment,” reported Cindy Reed, the hospital’s director of radiology. “We evaluated the DRX-Excel Plus at RSNA 2015 and were extremely impressed with its efficient design that can increase workflow, reduce manual actions by technologists and help reduce dose.”The Philips EasyDiagnost Eleva DRF, launched in May 2012, combines fluoroscopy with DR technology, offering facilities the ability to integrate the benefits of digital imaging while creating a multipurpose imaging space, thereby optimizing investment and improving workflow. Additionally, the solution allows hospitals to customize digital radiography and fluoroscopy (DRF) rooms to fit specific needs, from classic RF suites to cutting- edge bariatricDRF rooms.The Philips CombiDiagnost R90 is a remote-controlled fluoroscopy system in combination with digital radiography that provides dose management features like grid-controlled fluoroscopy, supporting high room utilization and patient throughput. It also offers Unique image processing for consistent image quality for radiography and fluoroscopy applications. It received FDA 510(k) premarket notification in January 2017.Shimadzu Medical Systems USA’s Sonialvision G4 universal digital R/F table system received FDA approval in April 2014. It is designed to perform a wide variety of examinations, including angiography, endoscopy, video fluoroscopy for gastrointestinal series and swallowing exams, orthopedic exams and general radiography. It acquires quality images rapidly and uses low radiation dose levels. Its ergonomic design is patient safety- and hygiene-focused, accommodates all sizes of ambulatory and stretcher/wheelchair-confined patients, and offers workflow-efficiency features to help improve technologist productivity. Special features for every type of exam the Sonialvision G4 performs help to minimize radiation dose exposure levels to the patient. A table that can support a patient weighing up to 700 lb (318 kg) in the horizontal position for bariatric procedures is seamless for easy cleaning and incorporates safety features to facilitate easy patient access and egress.Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.’s Kalare R/F digital X-ray system with flat panel detector (FPD) received FDA clearance in November 2014. The enclosed table design of the Kalare FPD R/F system may reduce scatter radiation by up to 95 percent, optimizing safety for patients and staff, while its 17 x 17-inch size provides quality images edge-to-edge without an increase in dosage. This design also helps reduce panning time for exams requiring fluoroscopy, such as a barium swallow, and eliminates periphery image distortion, leading to higher image quality.Expanding the clinical capabilities of limited R/F room space with one of the industry’s smallest tilting C-arm multipurpose systems available, Toshiba introduced the Ultimax-i FPD multipurpose system in late 2015. It has a small footprint that installs adjacent to back walls to improve patient access and allow for more complex procedures by providing routine angiography lab capabilities within an existing R/F space. It is designed to efficiently use the space providers have to safely diagnose and treat all patients, without the need for major renovation. The multipurpose system can accommodate up to 500 lbs. with a wide, high-capacity table to comfortably image a range of patients.

During a fluoroscopy procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body. The image is transmitted to a monitor so the movement of a body part or of an instrument or contrast agent through the body can be seen in detail. Fluoroscopy procedures are performed to help diagnose disease, or to guide physicians during certain treatment procedures. In years past, a dedicated fluoroscopy room was a must-have for any hospital. However, due to a shift toward other imaging modalities and changes in reimbursement, radiographic/fluoroscopy schedules are no longer full, making it inefficient and less cost-effective for hospitals to invest in a dedicated room. For this reason, many hospitals are now looking for systems that can serve multiple imaging rolls for R/F, digital radiography (DR) X-ray and in some cases for simple image-guided procedures. Body language expert Traci Brown spoke at the AHRA 2019 meeting on how to identify when a person is not being honest by their body language.

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – The Honduran military and police have been ordered to retake control of the Central American country’s prisons after a weekend gun battle left three people dead in one of them, officials said on Monday.“We have received instructions from the president to act immediately,” General René Osorio, head of joint chiefs of the armed forces, told Río Globo.He said President Porfirio Lobo was meeting later in the day with his national security team to lay out a strategy to wrest control of the country’s violent, overcrowded prison system from the inmates.“Drastic measures are going to be taken to prevent the death of those deprived of their liberty and to avoid corruption in the penal centers,” the general said.On Saturday, three members of the Mara-18 (M-18) gang were killed and six other inmates wounded in a battle involving AK-47 assault rifles and at least three grenades at the Tamara National Penitentiary, 20 kilometers north of Tegucigalpa.Until now, responsibility for security at the prisons has belonged to the penitentiary service.But a report Friday by the Inter-American Human Rights Commission warned that authorities had ceded control of the prisons to the inmates, citing a lack of manpower.Allowing inmates to run the prisons had led to widespread abuses, and was enabling criminals to plan kidnappings and other crimes from behind bars, the report said.It also reported that the country’s 24 prisons were more than 40 percent over capacity.The report found that its 12,300 inmates live in deplorable conditions, with a lack of medical assistance, inadequate supplies of food and drinking water, and no separation of inmates by the seriousness of their crimes.

first_imgThe Court’s advisory ruling, which is binding for the signatory countries of the American Convention of Human Rights, adds that that protection goes beyond the right to marry, and covers all rights assigned to heterosexual couples in each country’s internal legislation.“The advisory opinions have a binding character, and are above the constitution when it’s about conceding or amplifying rights. In this case, equal marriage is valid in Costa Rica,” Arias said.Saturday’s ceremony will be held before a notary who, according to local legislation, will then have eight days to enroll the marriage in the Civil Registry.Arias admitted that he is not sure whether the Registry will accept the marriage. However, if the registration is denied, “we’ll take it through the corresponding judicial paths,” he said.

We hope it’ll be a very festive and romantic moment.”The Inter-American Human Rights Court published an opinion Jan. 9 stating that all of its signatory countries should provide gay couples with the same legal rights to marriage as heterosexual couples.center_img In 2015, the Costa Rican woman Yazmín Elizondo and her partner Laura Flórez-Estrada, of Spain, were able to marry in Costa Rica because a clerical error at the Civil Registry resulted in Elizondo being listed as a man in government records.When the error was discovered, officials from the Civil Registry tried to annul the marriage, which generated a legal battle that hasn’t yet been resolved.Arias and Castillo started their relationship online and have been living together for almost three years.

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. — As a rookie, Patrick Peterson made his first Pro Bowl due to his prowess as a punt returner. The cornerback out of LSU returned 44 punts for 699 yards and four touchdowns, which tied an NFL single-season record. His numbers as a returner have declined each of the last two seasons, though, and as Peterson’s worth as a cornerback has grown, the team’s desire to have him return kicks has decreased. And now, following what was a season-ending injury to Tyrann Mathieu while returning a kick last year along with the offseason additions of Ted Ginn, Jr. and rookie John Brown, it appears his time playing anywhere but on defense may be coming to an end.“We’d like to ease that up a little bit anyway, just because of what happened to Tyrann and let him just focus on taking out receivers and doing his job there,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. “But, also, he’s still dynamic enough to do it. “His wide receiver days might be over.”Peterson was targeted eight times in the passing game last season, producing six catches for 54 yards.When he was drafted, the Cardinals needed the speed as a returner. Last season, they needed it in the passing game. Peterson provided both.But with the additions of Ginn, who has amassed 7,767 yards and six touchdowns as a returner in the NFL and now Brown, who averaged 11.5 yards per punt return and 32.4 yards per kick return last season at Pittsburg State, it appears the Cardinals can get by without using their top cornerback anywhere but on the opponent’s best receiver. – / 22 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments   Share   last_img read more
