Børns immunsystem har sværere ved at opbygges når de på grund af corona-restriktioner ikke eksponeres for bakterier. Børn har brug for at komme ud og lege i en park, klappe en hund osv. for at barnets immunsystem kan trænes til at møde bakterier.
The people whose immune system is most affected by Covid-19 insulation are kids. Being exposed to relatively small amounts of bacteria helps to build the immune system. Due to an extensive time period without meeting other people, kids might've not developed such a strong immune system, but if they were able to go to parks or just have a pet, severe threats should not be imposed.
Allt fler prövar fiskelyckan sedan pandemin slog till visar ny statistik. För att skydda hotade bestånd har metoden att släppa tillbaka fisken i vattnet blivit allt vanligare. Men catch and release-fiske kan döda fisk om man gör fel.
After China landed its Zhurong Mars rover on the Red Planet yesterday, there was just one important question on everyone’s minds: When are we going to see a robot battle between NASA’s rover and China’s? Okay, maybe that wasn’t immediately the first thing on your mind — but a surprising amount of people are clamoring for an epic fight between the Zhurong lander and Perseverance. Many of them took
Advanced technique used to recover genetic material may help solve the mystery of early man Scientists have pinpointed major changes in Europe’s Neanderthal populations – from traces of blood and excrement they left behind in a Spanish cave 100,000 years ago. The discovery is the first important demonstration of a powerful new technique that allows researchers to study DNA recovered from cave sed
With the end of lockdown in sight, cases are on the rise again. What are the likely consequences in the coming weeks? Coronavirus – latest updates See all our coronavirus coverage The rapid spread of the Covid virus now known as the Indian variant may force the government to postpone the lifting of final lockdown next month. Professor Adam Finn of Bristol University talks about the risks that Bri
A “Marxist” Military A former commander for the Space Force had been relieved of his duties. Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier lost his command after he went on “The Steve Gruber Show,” a conservative talk radio show, and claimed that leftist practices were being adopted throughout the military, according to CNN . Lohmeier was on the show to promote his new book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of
Golden Mirror Wings The James Webb Telescope has opened up its massive mirror “wings” for the last time on Earth before it launches later in 2021. NASA opened up the 21-foot set of golden mirrors as part of the telescope’s final tests to see if it can lock itself into place, according to the agency . The 18 hexagonal mirrors will be used to peer into the distant regions of space and observe the c
Low-Orbit Security Threat The US Director of National Intelligence released a report last month claiming China’s upcoming space station poses a threat to national security. The station is intended to “gain the military, economic, and prestige benefits that Washington has accrued from space leadership,” according to the “Annual Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community” report released by
Turn Off the Tiktok A Tesla driver posted several videos of him driving with his hands off the steering wheel to TikTok before he was killed in a car accident. Steven Hendrickson, 35, died on May 5 when his Tesla Model 3 crashed into an overturned truck in Fontana, California, according to Reuters . Hendrickson was killed in the accident while the truck driver and a good Samaritan who stopped to
Government proposals to recognise vertebrates as sentient beings are welcome, but this should be just the start Look a dog in the eye and a conscious being looks back. A being that feels hunger, thirst, warmth, cold, fear, comfort, pleasure, pain, joy. No one can seriously doubt this. The same is true of any mammal. You cannot watch rats playing hide and seek and doubt that they have feelings – t
The Nobel-winning psychologist on applying his ideas to organisations, why we’re not equipped to grasp the spread of a virus, and the massive disruption that’s just round the corner Daniel Kahneman, 87, was awarded the Nobel prize in economics in 2002 for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making. His first book, Thinking, Fast and Slow , a worldwide bestseller, set out his revol
Laws that prohibit physicians from providing treatments such as puberty blockers and cross-hormone therapy to minors are bad public policy. Their advocates claim that these are efforts to protect kids, who they argue may later change their mind, from medical treatments they characterize as irreversible . But these arguments don’t hold up to scrutiny : The laws—such as the one Arkansas just passed
Healthy immune systems work best when exposed to microbes. So what will lockdown have done to our resistance to germs? Every time you kiss another human being intimately for 10 seconds, more than 80m bacteria are transferred from mouth to mouth. If you’re at a party and double dip your tortilla chip into the salsa three times, around 10,000 bacteria will be transferred from your lips to the dip.
“Today Iran, tomorrow Palestine.” Thus cheered the crowd in Tehran in February 1979, during the Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s visit to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini just days after the success of the Iranian revolution. Arafat was the first foreign dignitary to visit Iran after the fall of the shah. For him, Khomeini’s success was a win for the Palestinian cause: His guerrilla fighters had hel
New experiments with vibrating drums push the boundaries of quantum mechanics. Two teams of physicists create quantum entanglement in larger systems. Critics question whether the study gets around the famous Heisenberg uncertainty principle. Recently published research pushes the boundaries of key concepts in quantum mechanics. Studies from two different teams used tiny drums to show that quantum
Mission Impossible Russia has selected the cast it’ll send to the International Space Station (ISS) to film the first movie in space — signaling its intention to beat celebrity middle-tooth-haver Tom Cruise to orbit. Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, announced on Thursday that it has cast actor Yulia Peresild to star in the space-produced film “Challenge” with Klim Shipenko to direct, accordin
Starving and trapped by ice, the Norwegian’s crew had discovered how to beat scurvy on an earlier voyage. The benefits proved crucial Thirteen years before he became the first person ever to reach the south pole in 1911, the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen experienced his first merciless taste of winter in the Antarctic . Stuck onboard the Belgian expedition ship Belgica, which was grounded in
Misinformation could be causing real harm in the community Like viruses, false information spreads through networks. I n March 2020 , more than a quarter of the top Covid-19 related videos on YouTube contained misleading claims and those had more than 60m views worldwide. The World Health Organization’s Covid “myth-busters” page counters ideas such as the notion that eating garlic protects you ag
Många gör skillnad på fiskar och andra djur: Man ser inte fiskar som individer som kan känna smärta. Men likheterna med oss människor är större än vad många tror. – Grundstrukturen hos fiskar och oss är likadan. De har en hjärna som fungerar precis som vår, säger fysiologiprofessor Svante Winberg, i Vetenskapens värld.
Roman Emperors were known for their excesses and violent behavior. From Caligula to Elagabalus, the emperors exercised total power in the service of their often-strange desires. Most of these emperors met violent ends themselves. We rightfully complain about many of our politicians and leaders today, but historically speaking, humanity has seen much worse. Arguably no set of rulers has been as de
Walensky and Fauci defend surprise public health move Robert Reich: Republican Covid lies follow foreign strongmen This week’s surprise reversal of mask-wearing guidance for those vaccinated against Covid-19 was a “foundational first step” towards returning the US to normal, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) insisted on Sunday, as the agency continued to draw critic
In a strip mall just off Houston’s NASA Parkway is a restaurant called Frenchie’s Italian Cuisine. You wouldn’t know it from the unassuming beige storefront, but inside, Frenchie’s looks like a museum. The walls are covered in framed pictures of smiling astronauts, in their blue jumpsuits and puffy spacesuits, holding up bubble helmets and model spaceships. Frenchie’s has been a popular spot with
Very few Americans are allowing themselves to feel anything about Afghanistan anymore. A triple bombing in Kabul left 80 people, many of them schoolgirls, dead last week. In photographs, you see the physical devastation of the bombing—a crater, twisted metal, gouged walls—but the more visceral devastation is in the faces of family members, the contorted, grief-stricken expressions of mothers and
Electricity was late and expensive Coming to Appalachia Knoxville especially so Twice a month the coal Man would come to fill the cellar For warmth and sometimes food And what I loved most was the fireplace Where Grandmother and Grandpapa would sit Near to tell stories but Oak Ridge came for the war Or maybe the war came for Oak Ridge And atomic energy replaced coal And the cellar became a home f
As the material that makes all living things what/who we are, DNA is the key to understanding and changing the world. British geneticist Bryan Sykes and Francis Collins (director of the Human Genome Project) explain how, through gene editing, scientists can better treat illnesses, eradicate diseases, and revolutionize personalized medicine. But existing and developing gene editing technologies ar
Imagine a collection of books—maybe millions or even billions of them—haphazardly tossed by publishers into a heaping pile in a field. Every day the pile grows exponentially. Those books are brimming with knowledge and answers. But how would a seeker find them? Lacking organization, the books are useless. This is the raw internet in all its unfiltered glory. Which is why most of our quests for “e

Recreational use of cannabis has now been fully legalized in 17 states and decriminalized in 13 others. As a result, today there are more varieties of pure, legal, high quality weed than ever before. And on paper that sounds great. The only problem is that the majority of the strains out there have very high levels of THC, which most consumers neither need nor want. Meanwhile, most CBD forward pr
Researchers have observed a new feature of neural activity in the hippocampus – the brain's memory hub – that may explain how this vital brain region combines a diverse range of inputs into a multi-layered memories that can later be recalled.
By removing "race correction" from the interpretation of pulmonary function test (PFT) results, Black individuals were shown to have a significantly higher prevalence and severity of lung disease, according to research presented at the ATS 2021 International Conference.
Patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a rare lung disease that causes shortness of breath and low oxygen levels because of lung scarring, have worse outcomes if they live in poor neighborhoods, according to research presented at the ATS 2021 International Conference.
Hi all, I'm a cogsci student and working on a LDT experiment and using psytoolkit. If anyone in this community can help or have some insight I would be super grateful!! We have created two LDT experiments that we have embedded in a survey successfully. It will be a repeated measures design where one participant will do both experiments but in different orders, which is randomized. The experimen
The investigational drug evinacumab reduced triglycerides in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia (sHTG) and a history of hospitalizations for acute pancreatitis in a phase 2 global study led by Mount Sinai.
An innovative cardiac rehabilitation intervention started earlier and more custom-tailored to the individual improved physical function, frailty, quality-of-life, and depression in hospitalized heart failure patients, compared to traditional rehab programs.
Heart failure (HF) – when the heart can't pump enough blood and oxygen through the body – affects approximately 6.2 million adults in the United States and is the primary cause of hospitalization in the elderly. Unfortunately, older adults with heart failure often have poor outcomes resulting in reduced quality of life, high mortality and frequent rehospitalizations.
A weighted "lottery" designed to increase access to the antiviral drug remdesivir during the May-July 2020 COVID-19 surge for those most affected by the coronavirus, including members of the Black, Latinx and indigenous communities, led to more equitable distribution of the badly needed medication, according to research presented at the ATS 2021 International Conference.

Being a sneakerhead isn’t cheap and it’s not good for the environment , either. In fact, trainers account for 1.4-percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions , which is a pretty intense considering that air travel is responsible for 2.5 percent. So if owning sustainable shoes is as important to you as owning a stylish, comfortable sneaker, you need to hear about Lane Eight’s Trainer AD 1 for M
