Sam Johnson wants us to rethink the way we look at cancer

With sister Connie in the final stages of advanced cancer, actor Samuel Johnson has once again expressed his frustration that there is still no cure for the hideous disease.

And while his latest Instagram post could be considered offensive to some, we’re positive that was not his intention.

Johnson, 39, shared his thoughts on the Love Your Sister social media page today, starting by saying, “If cancer wore a burqa would we have cured it already?”

What we think he meant by that comment is that if cancer were vilified the way those who wear burquas are WRONGLY targeted, if we focused all that energy wasted on mistakenly assuming all Muslims are terrorists, then cancer would probably have been eradicated by now.

His message seeming to be: Stop inventing fake problems and focus on targeting the real ones, like cancer.

The actor writes, “We want all the freedoms and we want them all now. We hate and kill other humans, for freedom from each other.

“For a freedom cancer doesn’t permit.

“75% of us live in real fear of a home-grown terrorist attack, while cancer will detonate and kill 50,000 of us this year. In our own backyard. Not in some province we can’t pronounce, let alone point to on a map.

“Rather than chanting for death, I choose to fight for life. Ideological rant over. xsam”

Followers of the cancer fundraising page have chosen to accept Johnson’s comments in the spirit in which they were intended, with @maso_chick who has experience with breast cancer saying, “Nope .. a burqa hides everything.”

The actor responded, “Cancer cares not of burquas or bikinis…”.

@amelie73 also chose to take his comments at face value, saying, “I know of no-one personally that has been killed by terrorism, but have lost two relatives, two colleagues, a dear neighbour, and one sweet young man to cancer.

“My father-in-law lost all his eight siblings to cancer.

“I live every day with the feeling that if I get it, it won’t be a huge shock. Governments please fund our defence against this actual menace, that’s killing thousands of Australian’s each year.

“Help us.”

Samuel Johnsons’ sister Connie, 40, is dying from an aggressive form of cancer, her third experience with the disease since the age of 12.

Initially diagnosed with bone cancer, she recovered and lead a normal life until being diagnosed with uterine cancer at 22, and then breast and liver cancer at age 33.

Since her most recent cancer battle, brother Sam has dedicated his life to raising money for cancer research, establishing the charity Love Your Sister which has raised $5 million to date.

Last week the devastated actor wrote a love letter to his sister who is suffering through the final stages of the cruel disease, saying, “I wish I could soften your pain, or lessen your fear, or give you something tangible, but tangible clearly isn’t in season.

“I’m proud to walk you to the hardest part of the road. The end. The only part of the road in your life that must sadly be traveled alone.”

Researchers propose a way to use your heartbeat as a password

Electrocardiograph readings could be used as passwords in the future.

Researchers at Binghamton State University in New York think your heart could be the key to your personal data. By measuring the electrical activity of the heart, researchers say they can encrypt patients’ health records.

The fundamental idea is this: In the future, all patients will be outfitted with a wearable device, which will continuously collect physiological data and transmit it to the patients’ doctors. Because electrocardiogram (ECG) signals are already collected for clinical diagnosis, the system would simply reuse the data during transmission, thus reducing the cost and computational power needed to create an encryption key from scratch.

“There have been so many mature encryption techniques available, but the problem is that those encryption techniques rely on some complicated arithmetic calculations and random key generations,” said Zhanpeng Jin, a co-author of the paper “A Robust and Reusable ECG-based Authentication and Data Encryption Scheme for eHealth Systems.”

Those encryption techniques can’t be “directly applied on the energy-hungry mobile and wearable devices,” Jin added. “If you apply those kinds of encryptions on top of the mobile device, then you can burn the battery very quickly.”

But there are drawbacks. According to Jin, one of the reasons ECG encryption has not been widely adopted is because it’s generally more sensitive and vulnerable to variations than some other biometric measures. For instance, your electrical activity could change depending on factors such as physical exertion and mental state. Other more permanent factors such as age and health can also have an effect.

“ECG itself cannot be used for a biometric authentication purpose alone, but it’s a very effective way as a secondary authentication,” Jin said.

While the technology for ECG encryption is already here, its adoption will depend on patients’ willingness to don wearables and on their comfort with constantly sharing their biometrics.

Scientists discover way to turn carbon dioxide into useful fuel

<p>Scientists discover way to turn carbon dioxide into use<br></p>Scientists discover way to turn carbon dioxide into use

In a new twist to waste-to-fuel technology, scientists at the US Department of Energys Oak Ridge National Laboratory have accidentally discovered a process to turn carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, into ethanol, a renewable fuel.

The researchers used tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn CO2 into ethanol.

“We discovered somewhat by accident that this material worked,” said lead author of the study Adam Rondinone.

“We were trying to study the first step of a proposed reaction when we realised that the catalyst was doing the entire reaction on its own,” Rondinone noted.

The team used a catalyst made of carbon, copper and nitrogen and applied voltage to trigger a complicated chemical reaction that essentially reverses the combustion process.

With the help of the nanotechnology-based catalyst which contains multiple reaction sites, the solution of carbon dioxide dissolved in water turned into ethanol with a yield of 63 per cent, showed the study published in the journal ChemistrySelect.

Typically, this type of electrochemical reaction results in a mix of several different products in small amounts.

“We’re taking carbon dioxide, a waste product of combustion, and we’re pushing that combustion reaction backwards with very high selectivity to a useful fuel,” Rondinone said.

“Ethanol was a surprise — it’s extremely difficult to go straight from carbon dioxide to ethanol with a single catalyst,” Rondinone noted.

The catalyst’s novelty lies in its nanoscale structure, consisting of copper nanoparticles embedded in carbon spikes. This nano-texturing approach avoids the use of expensive or rare metals such as platinum that limit the economic viability of many catalysts.

Given the technique’s reliance on low-cost materials and an ability to operate at room temperature in water, the researchers believe the approach could be scaled up for industrially relevant applications.

“A process like this would allow you to consume extra electricity when it’s available to make and store as ethanol,” Rondinone said.

“This could help to balance a grid supplied by intermittent renewable sources,” Rondinone pointed out.

New Way To Map How Brain Zapping Improves Mental Health

New Way To Map How Brain Zapping Improves Mental Health

Scientists, inluding one of Indian origin, have developed a new technique that can map how zapping the brain with weak electric current improves cognition and treats clinical symptoms – a breakthrough that may help better develop this low-cost brain hack.

A number of people who suffer from chronic pain, epilepsy and drug cravings are zapping their skulls in the hopes that a weak electric current will jolt them back to health.

This brain hacking – “transcranial direct current stimulation” (tDCS) – is used to treat neurological and psychiatric symptoms.

However, tDCS is not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and scientists are split on its efficacy, with some calling it quackery and bad science.

Until now, scientists have been unable to look under the hood of this do-it-yourself therapeutic technique to understand what is happening.

Danny JJ Wang, a professor of neurology at the University of Southern California, said his team is the first to develop an MRI method whereby the magnetic fields induced by tDCS currents can be visualised in living humans.

“Our study is the first step to experimentally map the tDCS currents in the brain and to provide solid data so researchers can develop science-based treatment,” he said.

According to Mayank Jog, graduate student at University of California, Los Angeles, tDCS was introduced in 2000.

“Since then, this noninvasive, easy-to-use, low-cost technology has been shown to improve cognition as well as treat clinical symptoms,” Jog said.
The study is a technological breakthrough, said Maron Bikson, a professor at The City College of New York.

The science on tDCS is inconclusive. The brain-hacking technique has been shown to improve symptoms in a wide swath of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including depression, drug cravings and stroke.

Scientists also have pointed to how it enhances learning, affects working memory and imparts other cognitive benefits among healthy people.

However, some people say tDCS is ineffective and even harmful. In rare cases, the technique causes burns where the electrodes were applied.

Researchers have mapped the human brain and demonstrated that putting a positive current (anode) in one area and a negative current (cathode) in another will foster an environment that prompts nearby neurons either to fire more rapidly or slowly, respectively.

Theoretically, putting an anode on the right prefrontal (right side of the forehead) and parietal lobe (above the eyes and behind the right ear) influences the executive network and could enhance attention and motor ability, Wang said.

Stroke patients could apply an anode in the damaged hemisphere and a cathode in the good hemisphere.

This rehabilitative technique may suppress the healthy part of the brain from overcompensating and pushes the damaged area to try to become fit again.

The study appears in the journal Scientific Reports..

Flexible wearable electronic skin patch offers new way to monitor alcohol levelsFlexible,wearable,electronic,skin,patch,offers,new,way,to,monitor,alcohol,levels

This flexible wearable sensor can be worn on the arm to detect alcohol level.
Credit: UC San Diego

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a flexible wearable sensor that can accurately measure a person’s blood alcohol level from sweat and transmit the data wirelessly to a laptop, smartphone or other mobile device. The device can be worn on the skin and could be used by doctors and police officers for continuous, non-invasive and real-time monitoring of blood alcohol content.

The device consists of a temporary tattoo — which sticks to the skin, induces sweat and electrochemically detects the alcohol level — and a portable flexible electronic circuit board, which is connected to the tattoo by a magnet and can communicate the information to a mobile device via Bluetooth. The work, led by nanoengineering professor Joseph Wang and electrical engineering professor Patrick Mercier, both at UC San Diego, was published recently in the journal ACS Sensors.

“Lots of accidents on the road are caused by drunk driving. This technology provides an accurate, convenient and quick way to monitor alcohol consumption to help prevent people from driving while intoxicated,” Wang said. The device could be integrated with a car’s alcohol ignition interlocks, or friends could use it to check up on each other before handing over the car keys, he added.

“When you’re out at a party or at a bar, this sensor could send alerts to your phone to let you know how much you’ve been drinking,” said Jayoung Kim, a materials science and engineering PhD student in Wang’s group and one of the paper’s co-first authors.

Blood alcohol concentration is the most accurate indicator of a person’s alcohol level, but measuring it requires pricking a finger. Breathalyzers, which are the most commonly used devices to indirectly estimate blood alcohol concentration, are non-invasive, but they can give false readouts. For example, the alcohol level detected in a person’s breath right after taking a drink would typically appear higher than that person’s actual blood alcohol concentration. A person could also fool a breathalyzer into detecting a lower alcohol level by using mouthwash.

Recent research has shown that blood alcohol concentration can also be estimated by measuring alcohol levels in what’s called insensible sweat — perspiration that happens before it’s perceived as moisture on the skin. But this measurement can be up to two hours behind the actual blood alcohol reading. On the other hand, the alcohol level in sensible sweat — the sweat that’s typically seen — is a better real-time indicator of the blood alcohol concentration, but so far the systems that can measure this are neither portable nor fit for wearing on the body.

Now, UC San Diego researchers have developed an alcohol sensor that’s wearable, portable and could accurately monitor alcohol level in sweat within 15 minutes.

“What’s also innovative about this technology is that the wearer doesn’t need to be exercising or sweating already. The user can put on the patch and within a few minutes get a reading that’s well correlated to his or her blood alcohol concentration. Such a device hasn’t been available until now,” Mercier said.

How it works

Wang and Mercier, the director and co-director, respectively, of the UC San Diego Center for Wearable Sensors, collaborated to develop the device. Wang’s group fabricated the tattoo, equipped with screen-printed electrodes and a small hydrogel patch containing pilocarpine, a drug that passes through the skin and induces sweat.

Mercier’s group developed the printed flexible electronic circuit board that powers the tattoo and can communicate wirelessly with a mobile device. His team also developed the magnetic connector that attaches the electronic circuit board to the tattoo, as well as the device’s phone app.

“This device can use a Bluetooth connection, which is something a breathalyzer can’t do. We’ve found a way to make the electronics portable and wireless, which are important for practical, real-life use,” said Somayeh Imani, an electrical engineering PhD student in Mercier’s lab and a co-first author on the paper.

The tattoo works first by releasing pilocarpine to induce sweat. Then, the sweat comes into contact with an electrode coated with alcohol oxidase, an enzyme that selectively reacts with alcohol to generate hydrogen peroxide, which is electrochemically detected. That information is sent to the electronic circuit board as electrical signals. The data are communicated wirelessly to a mobile device.

Putting the tattoo to the test

Researchers tested the alcohol sensor on 9 healthy volunteers who wore the tattoo on their arms before and after consuming an alcoholic beverage (either a bottle of beer or glass of red wine). The readouts accurately reflected the wearers’ blood alcohol concentrations.

The device also gave accurate readouts even after repeated bending and shaking. This shows that the sensor won’t be affected by the wearer’s movements, researchers said.

As a next step, the team is developing a device that could continuously monitor alcohol levels for 24 hours.

How Google nearby works, and the way you may take benewiwireless of it

google nearby n1

commonly to get Android devices speaking to every other you have to monkey round with Bluetooth, log into a few app or any other, or tap them together and wish that NFC magically does the relaxation. it is ahassle. that is in which Google close by comes into the photograph. This criminally underutilized function of Android can allow two devices which can be in close proximity to “see” each other and alternate facts. Neat! but how does it paintings, and how can you’re taking benewiwireless of it?

How Google nearby Works
close by is surely wi-fixed of APIs which can be available to builders to put into effect in apps. at the useraspect, there’s nothing you want to do other than set up and use apps that occur to enforce nearby. There are in reality no settings to tinker with, both. close by is gift on all current Android devices via Google Playservices, that’s up to date quietly in the history on a ordinary foundation.

close by makes use of three speciwiwireless signals to determine when two devices are near wi-ficientwireless to attach—c084d04ddacadd4b971ae3d98fecfb2a, Bluetooth, and audio. The c084d04ddacadd4b971ae3d98fecfb2a issue does not virtually join two devices immediately over c084d04ddacadd4b971ae3d98fecfb2a, however it does evaluate the listing of c084d04ddacadd4b971ae3d98fecfb2a access points every device can see. If the list is near or eachgadgets are at the identical get entry to point, this is an awesome sign they’re very close to each differentinside the real international. Bluetooth contributes by transmitting a unique token which may be visible by way of other gadgets using nearby. wiwireless, and most apparently, there may be the audio aspect.close by permits phones to emit ultrasonic sound which is imperceptible to people, but is detected throughthe microphone on other phones and drugs. If two devices can “listenevery different, they are in closeproximity.

google close by settings

Apps should be legal to use nearby, and you may see a complete listing of them inside the Google settings.

So, now you’ve got hooked up that telephones are close to every different. What does that get you? There are two important APIs supported in close by, one for general connections and every other for messaging. With the connections API, developers can create collaborative lists, allow nearby multiplayer video games, or even pair devices for a multi-display screen gaming revel in. The messaging API does what you wouldexpect, allowing on the spot real time messaging among two gadgets. but, close by messaging is notencrypted, so you ought to now not use it for touchy communique.

You do not must do something at some stage in the pairing technique, however you may ought to deliverthe good enough the primary time you access nearby functionality in an app. when close by is active, a notiwi-fication affords short get admission to to the Google account options to your smartphone that assist you to enable or disable nearby for each mounted app that helps it.

Google recently prolonged nearby to allow Bluetooth beacons to pop up notiwi-fications to apps or internetpages. so that you would possibly input a museum, and get a notiwi-fication linking you to an audio tour. United airlines would possibly link you to unfastened enjoyment options while ready at the gate, and your Chromecast will easy out the setup manner by popping up a notiwi-fication to tap on as opposed to requiring you to type in a setup web deal with. In this case, you do not have to truly do whatever except make sureBluetooth is enabled.

making use of close by

To take nearby for a spin for your cellphone, you’ll want to seize some apps that show off the generation.right here are a number of the good.

google close by n1
Left: Trello. proper: Pocket Casts.
Trello is a project manager and to-do tracker it truly is prepared into “forums.” you could create a board forsome thing you want, and within the overflow menu is an option to percentage a board thru close by. you may additionally scan for other forums that are being shared over nearby from the primary display screenin Trello.

Pocket Casts is one of the maximum famous podcast gamers at the Play shop, and it is continually beenspeedy to undertake new technology. within the discover section of Pocket Casts, there’s a tab for close by. this will allow you to proportion your podcast subscription list with human beings round you whilst theypercentage with you. it is a groovy way to swap subscriptions with pals who additionally use Pocket Casts.

google nearby n2
Left: idea. right: Radon.
notion uses the close by messaging API to create conversations to your nearby location. you can create a prowi-file or just chat anonymously with everybody else going for walks notion on your immediate vicinity.

Radon is a exceptionalsimple sharing app primarily based on close by. honestly discover awirelesshyperlink you want to proportion and select Radon from the gadget sharing menu. The person you’resharing the link with wishes to have Radon going for walks, however the app speedy spots the device the use of close by. The link is pushed over and you are done. No logins or typing necessary.

that is just scratching the floor of what’s viable with close by. it is very cool, however you don’t see wi-ficientwireless apps that assist it. hopefully devs pick out up the tempo and begin building greaterproximity-based features with close by soon.

whether it’s constipation, a leaky bladder or a strange scent, docs have visible nearly every health troublethere may be.

in terms of talking to our docs about our odd symptoms, however, a lot of us are too shy. In reality, forty sixpercent of usa citizens don’t speak to their doctors about fitness problems due to the fact they areembarrassed or worry being judged, according to a survey through fitness platform ZocDoc.

yet talking to your medical doctor approximately your symptoms assist you to discern out what theyabsolutely suggest and help deal with them fast.
here are four embarrassing health troubles you need to speak to your medical doctor approximately and the simple solutions to nix them for good.

1. Peeling pores and skin on the toes
Dry, peeling pores and skin in your feet is unpleasant particularly for the duration of sandal season but it can also imply which you have a condition referred to as bile deficiency.

each day, your liver produces about a quart of bile, an emulsifier that helps to take in and ruin down fats andallows to detox and transport waste out of your body.

If the bile turns into congested or thickened, however, it may reason dry, peeling skin at the toes.

one of the reasons bile is so essential is that it helps to soak up fats-soluble vitamins and vital fatty acidswhich might be critical to skin,” stated Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., a nutritionist who works in Texas and Idaho and author of “devour fat, shed pounds: How smart fat assist Reset Metabolism strain, hunger andintercourse Hormones for Lasting weight reduction and Radiant health.”

human beings who’ve had their gallbladders eliminated are much more likely to have bile deficiency. on the grounds that they don’t have a place to save bile, they don’t secrete it once they eat fatty ingredients.

Bile can also be thickened if you’re no longer eating enough bile-thinning nutrients, when you have clogged bile ducts, or in case your frame doesn’t produce a sufficient amount of bile due to the fact there’s a lack ofhydrochloric acid, which triggers bile to be released from the gall bladder.

different telltale symptoms of a bile deficiency include constipation, chalk-coloured stool, nausea, fatigue and a bitter flavor inside the mouth.

What to do:
A bile salt alternative supplement can help. look for one which includes ox bile, nutrients A, B, and C, choline, lecithin, taurine and betaine. additionally, devour meals that skinny the bile which includes lemon and water, beets, dandelion root tea and bitter meals like arugula and endive.

Microsoft EMET is not a silver bullet against exploits.

it’s terrible news for corporations. Hackers have launched big-scale attacks which might be able tobypassing the security protections introduced by way of Microsoft’s improved Mitigation enjoy Toolkit (EMET), a tool whose aim is to prevent software exploits.

The exploits have beenthese days added to the Angler make the most package.

Angler is one of the most extensively used assault tools utilized by cybercriminals to launch internetbased totally, “pressurethroughdown load attacks. it is capable of putting in malware by usingexploiting vulnerabilities in customers‘ browsers or browser plug-ins when they go to compromised websitesor view maliciously crafted commercials.

“The potential of Angler EK to avoid EMET mitigations and effectively exploit Flash and Silverlight is reasonably state-of-the-art in our opinion,” the FireEye researchers stated Monday in a blog post.

First launched in 2009, EMET can put in force present day take advantage of mitigation mechanisms forthirdbirthday celebration packagesespecially legacy ones — that were constructed without them. This makes it an awful lot harder for attackers to make the most vulnerabilities in the ones programs on the way to compromise computers.

while EMET is often advocated as a defense layer for 0-day exploits — exploits for previously unknown vulnerabilities — it also offers companies some leeway with regards to how fast they patch known flaws.

In company environments, the deployment of patching does no longer take place routinely. Patches for the OS or stand-on my own packages need to be prioritized, tested and handiest then pushed to computer systems, a technique which could drastically postpone their installation.

With extensive exploits now able to stay away from EMET mitigations, the tool must now not be relied onto protect antique versions of programs like Flash participant, Adobe Reader, Silverlight or Java till aagency can update them.

lamentably, agencies are from time to time compelled to hold antique variations of browser plug-ins andother programs mounted on endpoint computer systems which will hold compatibility with custom-madeinner web packages that haven’t been rewritten in years.

applications consisting of Adobe Flash, web browsers, and Oracle Java should be patched routinely, prioritizing critical patches, or eliminated if feasible,” the FireEye researchers said. “because the webbrowser plays an crucial position inside the infection manner, disabling browser plugins for Flash or Silverlight might also lessen the browser attack floor.”
