Riboflavin is a potential neuroprotective agent affecting a wide range of neurological disorders. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Front Neurol. 2017 ;8:333. Epub 2017 Jul 20. PMID: 28775706 Abstract Title:  Riboflavin Has Neuroprotective Potential: Focus on Parkinson's Disease and Migraine. Abstract:  With the huge negative impact of neurological disorders on patient's life and society resources, the discovery of neuroprotective agents is critical and cost-effective. Neuroprotective agents can prevent and/or modify the course of neurological disorders. Despite being underestimated, riboflavin offers neuroprotective mechanisms. Significant pathogenesis-related mechanisms are shared by, but not restricted to, Parkinson's disease (PD) and migraine headache. Those pathogenesis-related mechanisms can be tackled through riboflavin proposed neuroprotective mechanisms. In fact, it has been found that riboflavin ameliorates oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, neuroinflammation, and glutamate excitotoxicity; all of which take part in the pathogenesis of PD, migraine headache, and other neurological disorders. In addition, riboflavin-dependent enzymes have essential roles in pyridoxine activation, tryptophan-kynurenine pathway, and homocysteine metabolism. Indeed, pyridoxal phosphate, the active form of pyridoxine, has been found to have independent neuroprotective potential. Also, the produced kynurenines influence glutamate receptors and its consequent excitotoxicity. In addition, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase requires riboflavin to ensure normal folate cycle influencing the methylation cycle and consequently homocysteine levels which have its own negative neurovascular consequences if accumulated. In conclusion, riboflavin is a potential neuroprotective agent affecting a wide range of neurological disorders exemplified by PD, a disorder of neurodegeneration, and migraine headache, a disorder of pain. In this article, we will emphasize the role of riboflavin in neuroprotection elaborating on its proposed neuroprotective mechanisms in opposite to the pathogenesis-related mechanisms involved in two common neurological disorders, PD and migraine headache, as well as, we encourage the clinical evaluation of riboflavin in PD and migraine headache patients in the future.

Riboflavin and ultraviolet A irradiation for the prevention of progressive myopia. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Exp Eye Res. 2017 12 ;165:1-6. Epub 2017 Aug 31. PMID: 28864176 Abstract Title:  Riboflavin and ultraviolet A irradiation for the prevention of progressive myopia in a guinea pig model. Abstract:  In this study, we evaluated the effect of oral administration of riboflavin combined with whole-body ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation on the biochemical and biomechanical properties of sclera in a guinea pig model to control the progression of myopia. Experimental groups were administered 0.1% riboflavin solution with or without vitamin C by gavage from 3 days before myopic modeling and during the modeling process. Guinea pigs underwent 30 min of whole-body UVA irradiation after each gavage for 2 weeks. For control groups, guinea pigs were administered vitamin C and underwent either whole-body UVA irradiation without 0.1% riboflavin solution or whole-body fluorescent lamp irradiation with or without 0.1% riboflavin solution. Resultantly, myopia models were established with an increased axial length and myopic diopter. Compared with myopic eyes in the control groups, the net increase in axial length, diopter and strain assessment decreased significantly, and the net decrease in sclera thickness, ultimate load, and stress assessment decreased significantly in experimental groups. MMP-2 expression showed a lower net increase, while TIMP-2 expression showed a lower net decrease. In addition, hyperplasia of scleral fibroblasts was more active in myopic eyes of experimental groups. Overall, our results showed that oral administration of riboflavin with whole-body UVA irradiation could increase the strength and stiffness of sclera by altering the biochemical and biomechanical properties, and decreases in axial elongation and myopic diopter are greater in the guinea pig myopic model.

Exposure to sunlight reduces the risk of myopia in Rhesus monkeys. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2015 ;10(6):e0127863. Epub 2015 Jun 1. PMID: 26030845 Abstract Title:  Exposure to sunlight reduces the risk of myopia in rhesus monkeys. Abstract:  Exposure to sunlight has recently been postulated as responsible for the effect that more time spent outdoors protects children from myopia, while early life exposure to natural light was reported to be possibly related to onset of myopia during childhood. In this study, we had two aims: to determine whether increasing natural light exposure has a protective effect on hyperopic defocus-induced myopia, and to observe whether early postnatal exposure to natural light causes increased risk of refractive error in adolescence. Eight rhesus monkeys (aged 20-30 days) were treated monocularly with hyperopic-defocus (-3.0D lens) and divided randomly into two groups: AL group (n=4), reared under Artificial (indoor) Lighting (08:00-20:00); and NL group (n=4), exposed to Natural (outdoor) Light for 3 hours per day (11:00-14:00), and to indoor lighting for the rest of the light phase. After being reared with lenses for ca. 190 days, all monkeys were returned to unrestricted vision until the age of 3 years. Another eight age-matched monkeys, reared with unrestricted vision under artificial lighting since birth, were employed as controls. The ocular refraction, corneal curvature and axial dimensions were measured before lens-wearing (at 233 days of age), monthly during the light phase, and at the age of puberty (at 1185+3 days of age). During the lens-wearing treatment, infant monkeys in the NL group were more hyperopic than those in the AL group (F=5.726, P=0.032). Furthermore, the two eyes of most NL monkeys remained isometropic,whereas 3 of 4 AL monkeys developed myopic anisometropia more than -2.0D. At adolescence, eyes of AL monkeys showed significant myopic anisometropia compared with eyes of NL monkeys (AL vs NL: -1.660.87D vs -0.220.44D; P=0.002) and controls (AL vs Control: -1.660.87D vs -0.050.85D; P

Estonian German Neff has taken to a Russian crowdfunding site, hoping to raise nearly a quarter million dollars to finally discover the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoins pseudonymous father. With funds collected, the aim is to hire private detectives from all over the world: Japan, New York, London, and Russia.

Its about time we found Satoshi Nakamoto, Mr. Neff explains. Before the new economy gained momentum and until Bitcoin did not cost nearly $20.000, digital money could have been called geek pampering. The appearance of Bitcoin is widely compared to supernova explosion. And after one has happened, some uncertainty started to take place.

Lower vitamin D levels and sunlight exposure is associated with increased risk of myopia. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

n/a PMID:  Br J Ophthalmol. 2018 Jul 17. Epub 2018 Jul 17. PMID: 30018147 Abstract Title:  Vitamin D and its pathway genes in myopia: systematic review and meta-analysis. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: To conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of the association of blood vitamin D (25-hydroxyvitamin D, 25(OH)D) concentration and vitamin D pathway genes with myopia. METHODS: We searched the MEDLINE and EMBASE databases for studies published up to 29 January 2018. Cross-sectional or cohort studies which evaluated the blood 25(OH)D concentration, blood 25(OH)D3 concentration or vitamin D pathway genes, in relation to risk of myopia or refractive errors were included. Standard mean difference (SMD) of blood 25(OH)D concentrations between the myopia and non-myopia groups was calculated. The associations of blood 25(OH)D concentrations and polymorphisms in vitamin D pathway genes with myopia using summary ORs were evaluated. RESULTS: We summarised seven studies involving 25 008 individuals in the meta-analysis. The myopia group had lower 25(OH)D concentration than the non-myopia group (SMD=-0.27 nmol/L, p=0.001). In the full analysis, the risk of myopia was inversely associated with blood 25(OH)D concentration after adjusting for sunlight exposure or time spent outdoors (adjusted odds ratio (AOR)=0.92 per 10 nmol/L, p<0.0001). However, the association was not statistically significant for the<18 years subgroup (AOR=0.91 per 10 nmol/L, p=0.13) and was significant only for 25(OH)D3 (likely to be mainly sunlight derived), but not total 25(OH)D (AOR=0.93 per 10 nmol/L, p=0.00007; AOR=0.91 per 10 nmol/L, p=0.15). We analysed four single nucleotide polymorphisms in the VDR gene from two studies; there was no significant association with myopia. CONCLUSIONS: Lower 25(OH)D is associated with increased risk of myopia; the lack of a genetic association suggests that 25(OH)D level may be acting as a proxy for time outdoors.

How to write a great technical blog post "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Five steps to get from idea to polished result

Ive been working in the open source community for almost 5 years now, building and promoting developer tools including Meteor and Apollo. In that time, Ive found that blogging is one of the most effective ways to spread ideas.

A blog post doesnt take as long to prepare as a video or conference talk, but is easy to consume and can reach a ton of people. Ive also personally gotten a ton of benefit out of writing: it has helped me organize my thoughts, teach people about technologies I love, and get my name out there.

Since publishing my first blog post ever in 2014, Ive ended up writing 68 posts so far here on Medium, some with over 50k views and 1000 fans, and edited many posts for my friends and coworkers. Over that time, Ive picked up a few strategies for taking a post from concept to publication.

In this article, well go over five main steps of my process for writing a post:

  1. Find a good topic and commit to it
  2. Make your goals and audience specific
  3. Have a beginning, middle, and end
  4. Get feedback and iterate
  5. Add finishing touches: packaging, publication, and promotion

Lets get right into the first step!

1. Find a good topic and commit to it

You cant get started on a post unless you have something to write about! When I talk to people who want to start blogging, this is often their main blocker.

The simplest strategy is to write about what you know. If you spent many hours learning about something, and you think you could explain it in just a few minutes, youre going to provide a lot of value to your readers.

Another idea is to write about an area you think is lacking content. For example, right now there arent a lot of posts about how to apply to technical conferences, so content about that could fill a gap in the community.

Here are some specific types of posts you could go for. Examples are from the GraphQL-related posts on the Apollo blog:

The present study suggested that Roundup exposure has potential negative implications on male reproductive health in mammals. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Toxicol Lett. 2018 Jun 15. Epub 2018 Jun 15. PMID: 29908847 Abstract Title:  A commercial Roundup formulation induced male germ cell apoptosis by promoting the expression of XAF1 in adult mice. Abstract:  Roundup is extensively used for weed control worldwide. Residues of this compound may lead to side effects of the male reproductive system. However, the toxic effects and mechanisms of Roundup of male germ cells remain unclear. We aimed to investigate the apoptosis-inducing effects of Roundup on mouse male germ cells and explore the role of a novel tumor suppressor XAF1 (X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis-associated factor 1) involved in this process. We demonstrated that Roundup can impair spermatogenesis, decrease sperm motility and concentration, and increase the sperm deformity rate in mice.In addition, excessive apoptosis of germ cells accompanied by the overexpression of XAF1 occurred after Roundup exposure both in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, the low expression of XIAP (X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis) induced by Roundup was inversely correlated with XAF1. Moreover, the knockdown of XAF1 attenuated germ cell apoptosis, improved XIAP expression and inhibited the activation of its downstream target proteins, caspase-3 and PARP, after Roundup exposure. Taken together, our data indicated that XAF1 plays an important role in Roundup-induced male germ cell apoptosis. Thepresent study suggested that Roundup exposure has potential negative implications on male reproductive health in mammals.

Roundup 360 PLUS caused damage to DNA even at 5M. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Food Chem Toxicol. 2018 Jul 25 ;120:510-522. Epub 2018 Jul 25. PMID: 30055318 Abstract Title:  The mechanism of DNA damage induced by Roundup 360 PLUS, glyphosate and AMPA in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells - genotoxic risk assessement. Abstract:  Glyphosate is the most heavily applied among pesticides in the world, and thus human exposure to this substance continues to increase. WHO changed classification of glyphosate to probably cancerogenic to humans, thus there is urgent need to assess in detail genotoxic mechanism of its action. We have assessed the effect of glyphosate, its formulation (Roundup 360 PLUS) and its main metabolite (aminomethylphosphonic acid, AMPA) in the concentration range from 1 to 1000M on DNA damage in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The cells were incubated for 24h. The compounds studied and formulation induced DNA single and double strand-breaks and caused purines and pyrimidines oxidation. None of compounds examined was capable of creating adducts with DNA, while those substances increased ROS (includingOH) level in PBMCs. Roundup 360 PLUS caused damage to DNA even at 5M, while glyphosate and particularly AMPA induced DNA lesions from the concentration of 250M and 500M, respectively. DNA damage induced by glyphosate and its derivatives increased in order: AMPA, glyphosate, Roundup 360 PLUS. We may conclude that observed changes were not associated with direct interaction of xenobiotics studied with DNA, but the most probably they occurred through ROS-mediated effects.

This Guy Tricked His Girlfriend to Shoot a Cinematic Proposal Video "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When freelance filmmaker Matthew Paquette went to the carnival with his girlfriend Clara last weekend, she had no idea that he would propose on the Ferris wheel. Whats more, Paquette managed to trick Clara and secretly film this 4-minute cinematic proposal video.

The couple first met two years ago, and one of their first memories was sitting on the carnivals Ferris wheel together. Each year the couple also takes the time to shoot photos and cinematic videos at the carnival.

This year, Paquette asked Clara if shed like to shoot some couple-themed stock video at the carnival, and she agreed.

Instead of operating his RED Scarlet-W and Sigma 24mm Art lens himself, one of Paquettes friends lent a hand and followed the couple around.

Ive [owned the RED camera] for a little over a year now but Im usually filming stock video packs couple times a month for a stock video site some friends and I own, Paquette tells PetaPixel. I usually ask my friends if they want to be actors in the videos so it wasnt out of the ordinary for me to ask Clara.

She had no idea what was actually going on, Paquette writes.

Voice to Skull Technology Is Embedded in 5G-Mind Control Reaches Its Apex "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Recently I has approached by a self-described insider who had at one time worked for DARPA. He insisted that the new 5G technology being rolled out across the country was both lethal and contained mind control elements that should alarm all people. I thought the claims were outrageous and with scientific justification. Dont misunderstand me, I know that mind control exists, however, 5G being an element of mind control surprised me. Subsequently, I began a literature search and I found the mother load.

Subsequent to my search, I found the patent that should scare the hell out of all Americans.

United States Patent 6,017,302 Loos January 25, 2000
Subliminal acoustic manipulation of nervous systems

Abstract: In human subjects, sensory resonances can be excited by subliminal atmospheric acoustic pulses that are tuned to the resonance frequency. The 1/2 Hz sensory resonance affects the autonomic nervous system and may cause relaxation, drowsiness, or sexual excitement, depending on the precise acoustic frequency near 1/2 Hz used. The effects of the 2.5 Hz resonance include slowing of certain cortical processes, sleepiness, and disorientation. For these effects to occur, the acoustic intensity must lie in a certain deeply subliminal range. Suitable apparatus consists of a portable battery-powered source of weak subaudio acoustic radiation. The method and apparatus can be used by the general public as an aid to relaxation, sleep, or sexual arousal, and clinically for the control and perhaps treatment of insomnia, tremors, epileptic seizures, and anxiety disorders. There is further application as a nonlethal weapon that can be used in law enforcement standoff situations, for causing drowsiness and disorientation in targeted subjects. It is then preferable to use venting acoustic monopoles in the form of a device that inhales and exhales air with subaudio frequency.

Inventors: Loos; Hendricus G. (Laguna Beach, CA)Family ID:25505170Appl. No.:08/961,907 Filed:October 31, 1997

The patent goes on to further describe the workings of this acoustic technology.

Experiments have shown that atmospheric acoustic stimulation of deeply subliminal intensity can excite in a human subject the sensory resonances near 1/2 Hz and 2.5 Hz. The 1/2 Hz resonance is characterized by ptosis of the eyelids, relaxation, drowsiness, a tonic smile, tenseness, or sexual excitement, depending on the precise acoustic frequency near 1/2 Hz that is used. The observable effects of the 2.5 Hz resonance include a slowing of certain cortical functions, sleepiness, and, after long exposure, dizziness and disorientation.

According to my inside source, that when the brain reaches the 2.5Hz, it is vulnerable to implantation of ideas and suggestions for behavioral modification. I was stunned when I found this passa...

Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Dental Caries in Pregnancy. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Excerpts

In dental caries prophylaxis in general, and especially in pregnant women, the use of a fluoride-containing mouthwash in the form of sodium or selenium fluoride (sodium or selenium 1-2%) is recommended along with a correct brushing technique. Fluoride-containing chewing gum is a pleasant vector, acting both locally and generally. It stimulates salivary secretion by increasing the interproximal flow. Chewing gum reduces food stores by about 80%, as well as microbial plaque. Varieties containing xylitol reduce the number of Streptococci mutans and also increase the pH of the mouth and bacterial plaque (7). Investigations, followed by appropriate instrumentation methods, are decisive to the preservation of dental structures. Introduction of fluoridated remineralizing substances contributes to the achievement of contemporary dentistry goals (8).

It has been observed that, at a relatively short time after conception, dentinal hyperesthesia occurs, especially in the cervical area of the teeth, at the erosion, wear or abrasion zones, being triggered by temperature change and sapids (sweet, sour). This is particularly noticeable in the first trimester of pregnancy as a result of vomiting and consumption of acidic foods.

For this reason, it is recommended to rinse ones mouth with mouthwash (Listerine) or 5% bicarbonate solution after each vomit or acidic food ingestion. Special protective shields (bite guard) can also be used along with a gel or fluoridated solutions (1).

Nikon Asia released this promo video for the D850 that offers a peek at how the company tests the DSLR for durability in harsh environments, ensuring that its reliable through things like drops, impacts, vibrations, extreme temperatures, and humidity.

Nikon says that although the camera officially has an operating temperature range of 32 to 104F (0 to 40C), its actually designed with a wider tolerance than that to hold up in even more extreme conditions.

The company places and shoots the camera in special chambers with high humidity.

The camera is also covered with dust to ensure that the sealing keeps particles out.

We wanted to design a camera that wouldnt let a single drop of water in, even after a long time in the rain, Nikon says.

The team of developers just recently launched the Wormhole mainnet where the public can see the list of coins and the generated Wormhole Cash (WHC). Meanwhile, Gabriel Cardona, the creator of the Bitcoin Cash development kit, Bitbox, released a whole guide for individuals and groups so they can create tokens and crowdsales on the BCH chain.

Wormhole Developers Launch Mainnet

Wormhole.cash is a project for the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) chain that provides any individual or organization the ability to create representative tokens. This means users can create tokens that can represent anything they choose like a commodity such as gold, silver, copper, and tobacco. The tokens could also be stocks, bonds, loyalty points, and even coins pegged to a fiat currency like the US dollar. Wormhole is a fork of the project Omni Layer which created and issued the very well known dollar-pegged token tether (USDT).

Street Photography and Photographing Children "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Imagine, youre partaking in Pedestrian Sunday at Kensington Market on a sunny summer afternoon in Toronto, Canada, walking around with your Fuji X100F in hand looking for that Cartier-Bresson decisive moment. Suddenly you see a child leaning against a dilapidated, graffiti-splashed wall the likes of which would make Banksy nod in approval.

The child has his mug buried into an ice cream cone, working it over like a worldwide ban on ice cream is but hours away. Maybe he has a red, child-sized Make America Great Again cap on, along with a pair of oversized Blues Brothers sunglasses and a face full of attitude.

Now theres an image just crying to be captured. Amazing!

But where are the kids parents? Cant be snapping a shot of their child without permission, right? Im sure your decisive moment will hold a minute or two while you chat up the parents, yes?

Heres a newsflash for you, it wont. Youll be lucky if you can get your camera to your eye before the kid turns and, frustratingly, makes waste of your perfect shot. Weve all been there.

Theres a reason Cartier-Bresson didnt call it the decisive minute or two, and if you take the time to seek out permission youll quickly find out why.

Plus, here in Ontario, Canada the law is on your side when it comes to photographing people in public, and that includes children and pets. Let me repeat that for clarity: you have every right to photograph people and children in public, without permission. Period. That clears up that debate nicely, doesnt it?

If only it was that easy.

Just because the law is on your side doesnt necessarily make it morally right. While an experienced street photographer might see no harm in photographing kids, the average neophyte might find it wildly offensive and wrong, especially if said neophyte happens to be a proud parent of a young tyke or two. Parents are, after all, a protective lot. Who can blame them?

5000 Utility Customers in Maine Join Class Action Lawsuit Claiming They Were Overbilled. 2017 Dutch Research Determined Smart Meters Inflate Bills 30% to 582%. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By B.N. Frank

Three law firms will represent 5000 people in their complaints of overbilling by Central Maine Power Co.

CMP is one of many utility companies across North America that has installed Smart Meters.  There have been complaints about inflated billing and more everywhere these types of meters have been installed.  2017 Dutch research confirmed that these meters can cause measurement errors from 30% to 582%.

CMP knew about billing issues from the start but dismissed them even while people complained:

Auditors have so far found no anomalies in the companys new billing software or its smart meter network to explain bills that for some customers were two to three times what they had been during the same period in the previous year, CMP President and CEO Doug Herling said April 5 in a conference call with reporters.

We have done our investigation, at this point in time we have not found anything about our system or smart meters that would artificially increase customers usage, he said.

The Maine Coalition to Stop Smart Meters has been active for many years in the fight against Smart Meters:

In the effort to stop smart meters from eroding our health and legal rights, Maine is first in the nation:

  1. Fighting for, obtaining, and retaining right to opt out.
  2. Appealing a rejected Public Utilities Commission (PUC) complaint to a states highest court.

Shitty Waterfall In Dumbass Game Doesnt Even Have Stupid Cave Behind It "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

MODESTO, Calif. Local gamer Ryan Aguirre discovered that, against all odds, the goddamn waterfall his character spotted from across the map in a video game did not, in fact, have a fucking cave behind it, according to close sources.

This is such fucking bullshit, Aguirre exclaimed, according to roommates on the scene. I paid $60 for this goddamn video game and the developers had the gall to include a waterfall with no secret cave?! This is straight up not-ethical.

Aguirre had spent the better part of two hours not only traveling to the useless waterfall but also safely descending to the bottom of the pointless ravine into which it poured. Despite Aguirres dedication to uncovering what should clearly be a badass fucking cave filled with secret treasures or an easter egg or at least a hidden boss or some shit, his efforts were rewarded with what can only be described as a deliberate slap in the face by the asshole developers.

It was insulting is what it was, you fucking code monkeys couldnt have even put a health potion in there? residents of the nearby apartments reported Aguirre had shouted. Gamers are this generations explorers; I am the Christopher Columbuss of this video game so if I see a new fucking area, all I want to do is explore and subsequently murder the native population for loot.

Aguirre was last reported to have selected the fucking Exit to Desktop option from the dumbass menu in preparation for uninstalling the shit out of the stupid fucking open world bullshit game.

At press time, fuck this shit.

How Sugar Keeps You Trapped In A Cycle Of Addiction "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Lisa Egan

I admit it: Im a little bit addicted to the stuff.

I know its terrible for my health, but sometimes I need a fix.

Andthe more I have, the more I want.

I used to believe that I was weakthat I simply lacked willpower.

But, lately, I feel a bit vindicated: mounting evidence is showing that the tiny white crystals are VERY addictive.

****

Sugar is found nearly everywhere. It is in approximately 75 percent of packaged foods purchased in the United States.

The average American consumes anywhere from a quarter to a half pound per day.

Did that sink in?

If so, you probably think Im terrible at math, or that I made a typographical error.

As outrageous as consuming up to a HALF POUND of sugar per day sounds, it is entirely possible and common.

It is equal to about 30-60 teaspoons of sugar in a 24 hour period. Still seem like it would be hard to consume that in one day? Well, consider that ONE 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola contains 39 grams of sugar and 140 calories. And every single calorie comes fromsugar. Four grams of sugar equals one teaspoon, so ONE can of soda contains almost 8 teaspoons of sugar. Cranberry, pomegranate, grape, and orange juice contain 48 to 63 grams of sugar per 12 ounceswhich is 9.6 to 12.6 teaspoons of sugar per serving. 

Sugary beverages are the primary source of added sugar in the average American diet, and they are particularly dangerous because the method of consumption is rapid. Its easy to gulp down a few sugary drinks every day without thinking much about it.

Then, of course, you have to account for all of the non-liquid sources of sugar you consume.

As you can see, avoiding sugar can be challenging, consuming a lot of it is fairly easy, and tracking your intake can be difficult (unless you are a meticulous label-reader and number-cruncher).

To make matters worse, sugar can be highly addictive.

James DiNicolantonio is a cardiovascular research scientist at St. Lukes Mid-America Heart Institute in Kansas City, Missouri. He says that refined sugar is similar to cocaine, and that studies show it can be even more addictive than the....

Internet Causes Sleep Deprivation, and Not Just in Teens, Study Shows "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Anna Hunt

It has never been more challenging to disconnect from technology than it is today. In most homes, laptops, TVs and smartphones easily distract us, often sucking us into media time-warps. Research now shows that broadband Internet access is creating an environment that results in sleep deprivation.

Study Shows Internets Responsible for Sleep Deprivation

Researchers at Bocconi University and University of Pittsburgh published a study that found temptations created by broadband Internet is a noteworthy cause of sleep deprivation. They linked data on broadband Internet rollout in Germany to surveys of individuals who reported sleep duration. They published the study in the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization.

One of the main finding of this study showed that Internet access reduces both sleep duration and sleep satisfaction. This trend most significantly affects individuals who are rushed during the mornings because of work or family responsibilities.

Francesco Billari, a Full Professor of Demography at Bocconi University, Milan, and the Principal Investigator of the project DisCont, stated:

Individuals with DSL access tend to sleep 25 minutes less than their counterparts without DSL Internet. They are significantl...

Wendy McElroy: Free-Market Law Enforcement for Crypto "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Free-Market Law Enforcement for Crypto

The Satoshi Revolution: A Revolution of Rising Expectations.
Section 4: State Versus Society
Chapter 9, Part 6

Government is a law factory. It passes laws in the same manner that another type of factory extrudes metal moldingBut, whereas a factory which extrudes metal molding is providing a product which is useful to the citizens generally, and which certain citizens will purchase voluntarily; the government factory extrudes compulsion which is useful principally to the government, itself, but is purchased [through taxes and other fees] in advance by the people, who are never in a position to refuse to buy.

-Robert LeFevre, The Nature of Man and His Government

A key difference between state and society: the latter does not force people to buy products or services they do not want. Society does not require them to use central banks, to purchase law enforcement, or to finance military protection against foreign nations. People can decline that type of product altogether, or they can use a competing private supplier.

By contrast, the state compels the purchase of such products on the grounds that they are essential to the social good. Not only that, government claims that monopolies are needed to act as trusted third parties (TTPs).

At the core of the conflict between state and society lies antithetical views of TTPs. The state insists on a neutral or benevolent definition; that is, a TTP is an entity that facilitates the quality or honesty of interactions between people who invest it with trust. The description can be accurate. People can use a lawyer, for example, as an intermediary in a business deal. But a TTP is neutral or benevolent only if no one is forced to use or to finance it.

Both groups, like the cypherpunks, and individuals, like Sato...

The Creativity and Suicide of Robin Williams: A Phenomenological Study "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

On August 11th, 2014, a dark cloud descended: Robin Williams, the man who had brought joy into millions of homes the world over, was pronounced dead. He had taken his own life. Countless people took to social media to express their profound sadness and loss; in his tribute to the fallen actor and stand-up comedian, former U.S. president Barack Obama encapsulated Americas collective grief as follows:1

He was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien  but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most  from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets.

Making his debut on the hit TV sitcom Mork & Mindy (1978-1982) as an alien from planet Ork, Williams would go on to perform in the big screen in a number of starring rolesfrom radio disc jockey Adrian Cronauer in Good Morning Vietnam (1987), to the gender-bending Daniel Hillard/Euphegenia Doubtfire of Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) fame, to widower and psychotherapist Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting (1997), for which he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

As his decades-long career illustrates, Williamss acting possessed both breadth and depth. He was capable of inhabiting a multitude of roles, and through his embodiment of those roles eliciting a range of emotions from viewers. One moment, as the Genie of Alladin (1992), he provokes uncontrollable laughter with his wild voice impersonation of fifty-two distinct characters. The next moment, he elicits both fear and pity as a lonely photo technician whose obsession with a particular family takes a decidedly dangerous turn (One Hour Photo, 2002). Williams had the ability to go from manic to mad to tender and vulnerable, and so immersed was he in his roles that during the filming of Mrs. Doubtfire, members of the public, and the cast and crew, treated him as if he really were an old lady.

But as Obamas tribute makes clear, the world did not only lose a talent; it lost a kindred spirit. Robin Williams was not only a good actor but a good human being. When Christopher Reeves of Superman fame was in the hospital following the tragic horseback-riding accident that rendered him quadriplegic, Williams, in full regalia, arrived as a Russian proctologist, bringing laughter back into his best friends life. Similarly, when Steven Spielberg fell into a deep depression during the filming of Schindlers List, Williams spent countless nights on the....

Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis: Why Code is Law and Self Regulating, Not the SEC "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

First, lets remember Satoshis words:  We have proposed a system for electronic transactions without relying on trust

Snapping back to reality and lest we forget, cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin are alternatives to the government backed fiat currencies. Its peer to peer, digital, not issued from a single source and entirely backed by the trust of the community. Thats why its trustless and secured not by the whims of politicians or policy makers as they like to call themselves but by complex mathematical formulasoften proof of work.

This is why the crypto market doesnt need the SEC and other regulators, though rogue elements would anyway exist, the route for self regulation is secure when there is an independent market thats not roped in anyway by the central bankers. Yes, there are millions and perhaps Trillions of dollars according to Tim Draper when institutions come in but they often tow in with the government who then use this to bait the market through excessive, innovative killing regulations. If anything, sticking to ownership, digital nature and code is law might perhaps be a safe route for cryptocurrencies.

So, while investors might have over-reacted to SEC Bitcoin ETFs delays, we must also realize that Bitcoin and most coins are down more than 80 percent from 2017 peaks. The truth is that we dont need the SEC and the rest of these government backed guys. They often mess things up and that alone irked Satoshi forcing him to design fiat alternatives, the Bitcoin. Now, for price the worst part is that the degradation might continue in coming days since this week will close as bears and perhaps even recording double digit losses from last weeks close.

Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis

Weekly Chart

Week over week, Bitcoin (BTC) prices are down 20 percent in the last week alone and trending inside a descending triangle with strong support at the $6,000 mark. So, in essence what this means is that Bitcoin dropped $2,500 after week ending July 29 and....

Ethereum Plunged 15% Today to $305, What Will Happen to Alts and Tokens? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The price of Ether, the native cryptocurrency of Ethereum, has fallen by 15 percent in the last 24 hours to $305, as other major cryptocurrencies like EOS fell 13 percent.

Tokens have followed the price movement of Ethereum, EOS, Ripple, and other major cryptocurrencies, recording 10 to 20 percent losses against the US dollar. But, most tokens demonstrated intensified movements on the downside, with steeper drops.

What Has Caused the Drop to Materialize?

The vast majority of investors and analysts have struggled to offer specific reasons to support the sudden drop in the price of major cryptocurrencies on August 11. Some have pointed towards the Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) saga, but given that positive development and news in the cryptocurrency sector have barely impacted the cryptocurrency exchange market, it is highly unlikely that Bitcoin ETF-related news have led the market to fall.

Since February, Bitcoin has demonstrated a weird but an evident pattern. Bitcoin would plummet to $6,000, initiate a corrective rally, test the $10,000 resistance level, and fall back down to $6,000. In the past six months, Bitcoin has repeated this process three times, all within the range of $6,000 and $10,000 and on rare occasions, dipping below $6,000 and breaking above $10,000.

BTC price chart provided by Cryptowat.ch

It is entirely possible, following the findings of Tabb Group, that a market much bigger than the global cryptocurrency exchange market has continuously impacted the mid-term movement of BTC, specifically within the range of $6,000 to $10,000.

Researchers at Tabb Group have estimated the over-the-counter (OTC) market to be two to three-fold larger than the cryptocurrency exchange market, which is understandable given that large-scale investors do not trade digital assets in the exchange market due to its lack of liquidity.

Another interesting aspect of the recent price movement of BTC is that positive developments such as the entrance of the New York Stock Exchange, Microsoft, and Starbucks into the cryptocurrency sector have had minimal impact on the price trend of BTC.

Nigerian bank manager says he is out-of-office meeting single women in his area "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Hopeful respondents to a Nigerian bank official who has fortuitously managed to acquire 10 million US dollars and needs urgently to solicit your esteemed help to transfer it into a foreign account in return for which you will get a 40% share, is unfortunately out of the office for the next three weeks, as he is following up on a few new opportunities that have come into his inbox recently, it has been revealed.

Mr Alex Kwamo is now out of the office until September 1st, disappointed respondents were told today in an automatically generated email by the branch manager, who is 37 and married with three children, my dear friend.

May God almighty forgive me for contacting you without permission, and for saying that mine is a stressful job, sending out 10 million emails each day to which only a handful of people reply, said Kwamo in a suprisingly frank out-of-office message.

Im going offline for a while. Do something useful, continued Kwamo. I definitely want to try and reduce my blood pressure using medications that have been recalled by Health authorities, as well as trying out some revolutionary new anti-aging products that my friend Laura from Daily Health Digest helpfully tells me about in an email at least 10 times every day.

I also have ongoing concerns about nasty skin tags and moles, something literally hundreds of leading dermatologists have warned me about, noted Kwamo.

I could also really do with spending some time trying to find out which everyday ingredient it is that Im eating that is causing my erectile dysfunction. Everyone of my email contacts seems to know what it is, but theyre seemingly too shy to say it in writing. Hopefully, Ill have the time on my leave to click through on the useful links theyve sent me and find out.

And while Im at it, Ill try and find out what the hell ketos are for you all, concluded Kwamo.

Alleged ELF and ALF Fugitive, Joseph Dibee, Arrested After 12 Years "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

from Earth First! Newswire

Joseph Mahmoud Dibee, an alleged member of the Earth Liberation Front group The Family, has been arrested in Cuba and is now being held in Oregon. Cuban authorities, with assistance from the FBI and other US government agencies, detained Dibee in Cuba shortly before he was set to board a plane to Russia. He has been held in the Multnomah County Detention Center in Portland since Thursday afternoon.

He appeared in federal court in Oregon yesterday afternoon. He pleaded not guilty to three counts of arson and conspiracy charges. He told the judge he understood his rights and said nothing else.

He will now face federal criminal charges in Oregon, California, and Washington.

He is being charged in Oregon with one count of conspiracy to commit arson, one count of conspiracy to commit arson and destruction of an energy facility, and one count of arson. He also faces one count each of conspiracy to commit arson, possession of an unregistered firearm, and possession of a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence in Washington and one count each of conspiracy to commit arson, arson of a government building, and possession of a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence in California.

One of the actions Dibee is accused of taking part in is the destruction of the Cavel West horsemeat-packing plant in Redmond, Oregon, in 1997. The joint ELF/ALF action was successful in permanently closing down the facility.

In 2005, FBI agents arrived at Joseph Dibees home in Seattle, but did not have enough evidence to arrest him. He disappeared a few days later. In 2006, a federal grand jury in Oregon indicted Dibee and 12 others as part of Operation Backfire, an FBI investigation into animal and earth liberation groups which has led to numerous arrests. The Family is believed to be responsible for actions ranging from vandalism to arson between 1995 and 2001, causing more than $45 million in damages to earth-destroying and animal-abusing companies. None of the actions Dibee is accused of taking part in harmed any human or nonhuman life.

Falsehood and Justice "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Henry Chapman, Spiral of Justice (2018), graphite and inkjet ink on paper, 11 x 8.5 inches (courtesy of the artist)

The poem, Spiral of Justice, or Gerechtigkeitsspirale in its original German, was carved by Erhart Falckener onto a church pew in Hesse in 1510. The words are punctuated by red diamonds and surrounded by thistle and acanthus. I found an image of the pew while researching examples of shaped poetry. Reading the English translation is like reading the news: Justice suffers in great need/Truth is slain dead [] Faleshood is of high birth.

The poem:

Justice suffers in great need.
Truth is beaten to death.
Faith has lost the argument.
Falsehood is of high birth.
That angers God the Lord.
O man, let go
That you may not always be lost.
Praise justice.

POCATELLO, Idaho  Thirty-two representatives from thirteen tribal governments met on Wednesday, August 8th in Pocatello, Idaho to discuss President Trumps Executive Order 13781 to reorganize the federal government and specifically the proposed reorganization of the Department of the Interior (DOI).  The meeting was hosted by the Great Plains Tribal Chairmans Association, the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council and the Ute Tribe of Utah in conjunction with the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes annual Indian Festival in Fort Hall, Idaho.

Tribal leaders who attended included: Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, Navajo Nation, Ute Tribe, Yankton Sioux, San Juan Southern Paiute, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, Shivwits Band of Paiutes, Paiute Indian Tribe, Shoshone-Paiute, Confederated Tribes of  Goshute, Northern Arapahoe Tribe, Eastern Shoshone Tribe and the Northwestern Band of Shoshone.

If you cant honor our treaties, then we want our lands back, stated Shaun Chapoose of Ute Indian Tribal Business Committee.  Jeremy Patterson, legal counsel for the Ute Indian Tribe further stated, {the federal government} must address treaty rights in order for this nation to progress. Until that happens there must be consequences to the federal government for not recognizing our treaties.

At the meeting, every tribal government expressed concerns at the efforts of the Trump Administration to dramatically change the federal government structure, especially at those specific agencies that serve as the primary agencies tasked with ensuring that the federal government fulfills its solemn treaty and trust responsibilities to tribes. The tribes are deeply concerned that this restructuring of DOI and other federal agencies is being done without meaningful consultations with tribes. DOI has proposed to realign regional boundaries for federal agencies within DOI, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).

All tribal leaders present at the meeting pledged a united opposition to the proposed reorganization, which would have severe adverse impacts to Tribes and individual Indians. Tribal leadership emphasized that the most significant concern is the real impacts to our people, our tribes and our communities.  It is...

Punk Sales Associate Refuses to Start Shift Until Store Fills Up a Bit "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

ERIE, Pa. Punk sales associate Courtney Cruz is refusing to start her six-hour shift at Target until the store actually fills up a little bit, irritated sources confirmed.

Maybe Id start on time if they actually promoted these sales right, said Cruz, sipping from a flask stored in her glove compartment. Like, did anybody even make a Facebook event for the Summer Clearance Blowout so I could share it? Theres only, like, six people in there, and theyll probably leave the second their friend texts them about a better sale down the street.

I bet everyones just waiting for their friends shift to start later on, Cruz added. Way to show your support for capitalism, assholes.

However, assistant manager Bob Mayfield insisted that any associates he schedules owe it to their customers and fellow coworkers to begin their shifts promptly.

She could at least have her stuff ready to go, instead of sitting in her van and coming back smelling funny, he said. The store doesnt cut bi-weekly paychecks for her to chat idly with customers about other shifts she has going on this month, or take 90 minutes to load in gear which is a really weird term for a Tupperware full of leftovers, by the way.

Cruz attributed her defiant behavior to the chains fundamental shortcomings in managing its events.

I dont even know why I still take shifts here. Theyre always so lame, she said. Like that awful flyer for Vizio Televisions where are the skeleton heads wrapped in serpents advertising the new pricing, like I suggested? I did a mock-up and everything. I dont know how they expect to get cool sales associates in here if they cant take any good ideas seriously.

At press time, Cruz claimed she needed another 20 minutes because somebody had reportedly fucked with the barcode scanner, which is allegedly a total bitch to get the settings just how she likes it.

Urban Ecological Consciousness at Wave Hill "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Lillian Ball, WATERWASH Bronx River wetland view in May, with recycled glass vortex sculpture for overflow leaving wetland and entering river (photo by Lillian Ball)

Curated by Jennifer McGregor and Eileen Jeng Lynch for Wave Hills Glyndor Gallery, Ecological Consciousness: Artist as Instigator showcases artworks that perform quiet yet consequential interventions upon New York Citys urban ecology. The exhibition focuses on ecological social practice projects that are local to the city; Joseph Beuys concept of social sculpture, in which an artwork strives to shape society or the environment, is a pervasive influence. This practical bent means that, despite what the exhibitions title suggests, its artworks are aimed as much at tangible environmental remediation as they are at abstract consciousness raising. In aggregate, they make a humble and hardworking case that pragmatic-minded ecological art can function as a form of guerrilla urban design.

This design sensibility is evident in both Lillian Balls WATERWASH Bronx River (2010-2015) and SLO Architectures and Bob Braines Daylighting Tibbetts Brook (2018). The former is a 2010 human-made wetland park that filters stormwater runoff to the Bronx River; measurements taken by Community Drexel Engineering estimate that the park has improved the immediate areas water quality by 15 to 20 percent. The latter is a proposal, part of the 2034 Van Cortlandt Park Master Plan, to daylight that is, redirect a stream into an above-ground channel the Bronxs Tibbetts Brook, which the city diverted into a sewer in 1912. Both projects illustrate how this type of artwork is collaborative in nature, requiring efforts from local communities, outside experts, government agencies, and other organizations and institutions.

60+ Artists Show Off the Beautifully Skillful Pages of Their Moleskine Sketchbooks "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Moleskine Project - Spoke Art

Alpay Efe

For the seventh year, Spoke Art presents The Moleskine Projectits annual collective celebrating the artist sketchbook. International artists from across the new contemporary movement were asked to place their visions on the pages of a Moleskine sketchbook. The results are currently on display at Spoke Art's New York City gallery for the first time.

Over 60 artists are on show, using different mediums and techniques to produce their work. Street artist Aaron Lil-Hill incorporates aerosol paint into a sketch that looks as though it could easily make the leap from paper to wall. Italian artist Marco Mazzoni stuck close to his beloved colored pencils for a piece that demonstrates his love of flora and fauna, while Alpay Efe used the paper like a canvas to create an oil portrait in his signature realist style.

One of the most immediate and intimate means of expressing creativity, sketchbooks are extremely versatile yet rarely displayed. The Moleskine Project VII is an unprecedented opportunity to get up close and personal with artists' sketchbooks.

Work from The Moleskine Project VII is available for purchase via Spoke Art's website. The exhibition is visible to the public at Spoke Art in the Lower East Side through August 25, 2018.

The Moleskine Project is Spoke Art's annual celebration of artists' sketchbooks and features over 60 international artists.

A lot of people love pizza, a guilty pleasure that is usually full of fat, refined carbohydrates, and sodium. However, at Don Peppe pizzeria, some lucky diners had the chance to try a unique life-prolonging pizza.

The Pizza Pascalina was served to eager customers at the Napoli Pizza Village last June. It was a dish created using findings from a study conducted by the Naples Fondazione Pascale Institute of Tumors.

The research involved experts from various fields who formed an impressive network of caterers, consumers, producers, and researchers. The network worked towards one goal: Safeguarding public health by spreading healthy food habits including eating pizza.


The one-of-a-kind pizza served at Don Peppe could help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, along with some types of digestive system tumors like rectal cancer.

Never Fear The Walking Dead Again With These Badass Weapons "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

One of my favorite shows, AMC's Fear the Walking Dead is finally coming back on air August 12, 2018 and it's got me thinking

If we were really to get hit with a walker-type disaster, sure. Load up on guns, bullets, and supplies (and ideally you have these stored in advance like I do). But you also want to be prepared with weapons that don't require ammo. Inspired by Fear the Walking Dead, here's my list of the essential weapons to have in your arsenal just in case we ever get hit with a crazy epidemic that turns dead humans into walkers.

When we think about fearing the walking dead, the one vision that seems to populate our minds is a walker staggering towards us with outreaching arms. No matter how slow the walker approaches, they always tend to reach their target (eventually). For many, the thought of an epidemic apocalypse is better reserved for the TV show as opposed to a real-life occurrence. Even some of our own friends would ridicule us if we were to give them any inclination that the walking dead is something that we fear, not just on a TV series, but deep down in our gut.

Racism and Erasure in Fred Wilsons Unearthed Histories "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Installation view of Fred Wilson: Afro Kismet at Pace Gallery (photography courtesy of Pace Gallery, Fred Wilson, courtesy Pace Gallery)

While substantially reprising Fred Wilsons contribution to last years Istanbul Biennale, his current exhibition, Afro Kismet at Pace Gallery in Chelsea, continues an investigation that began with the artists U.S. pavilion at the 2003 Venice Biennale. He used that earlier occasion to examine representations of Africans in early modern art from Italy and other parts of Europe. He also displayed images of blackness stereotyped and caricatured in less rarefied and more contemporary objects he found in Venice, such as candle holders and cookies. For nearly three decades, Wilson has made, appropriated, and curated cultural products in order to expose racism and erasure at the core of social relations, whether in the United States, Europe, or with Afro Kismet the perimeters of the Middle East.

Extending his work in Venice and shifting his geographical focus, Wilson exhibited paintings at the Istanbul Biennale, selected from the citys Pera Museum, that included individuals of African descent amid larger group scenes. Their images were reproduced in cropped isolation next to the paintings as a way of spotlighting these frequently ignored figures. At Pace, a new set of European paintings are in play The Musician (1895) by Orientalist painter Rudolf Ernst, is one example although this time no highlighting is necessary because they are individual portraits by Europeans of Africans in North African and Middle Eastern settings. They are also put in dialogue with, for instance, an African mask or self-reflective lines from James Baldwins novel Another Country, partly written while he was living as an expatriate in Istanbul.

Seeing 12:12 and the Merkaba Field "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Tanaaz; Forever Conscious

I tend to see number patterns fairly frequently like 11:11, 4:44 and so on. But lately, I have also started seeing 12:12, which is definitely a new one for me so it caught my attention.

Number patterns carry their own unique meaning and while there are some classic interpretations, I also think that number patterns can be unique to the person and their own journey.

So, when I started seeing 12:12 I tried to tap into my own intuition to see what this may mean for me. Perhaps it was a sign of something new coming into my life? While this resonated with me, I also wanted to investigate further.


The first bit of information I found came from the website Willow Soul:
According to Merkabah mysticism, 12:12 is a code portal that, when you enter in resonance with it, activates your Merkabic field. When this happens, you are in alignment with the human heart connecting to the Unity Consciousness.
Now, this really caught my attention, so I did some further research.

Met Office upgrades to Windows "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

New standards to improve the operations of weather forecasters are to be introduced by 2020. The Met Office has found that techniques currently employed ensure weeks of accurate forecasts when the weather is stuck in one mode, i.e. heatwave, but that accuracy falters as soon as the weather becomes changeable, i.e. normally.

Since we only need forecasts when the weather changes it seems right that the Met Office should take account of that fact said a spokesman today.

The first major change will mean that all buildings occupied by forecasters must have at least one orifice in the wall apart from the entrance door. For preference said the spokesman, the orifice should resemble the kind of glazed structure installed in most residential and business premises and known as a window. This enables building occupants to see what is actually happening outside without having to speculate.

On the technical front forecasters who use their Internet websites to show weather conditions across several hours will also be forced to adopt a software system known as 20/20 hindsight.

We are particularly concerned about those sites which show that it is continuing to rain long after it has stopped or that it is still bright and sunny long after it has started raining said the spokesman.

Having cleared up the matter of what the weather is doing at present then new software will be introduced to help forecasters predict what the weather will do in future. We did encounter some resistance from the industry at first added the spokesman but we overcame their objections by meeting them head on and modifying the software slightly. We will still expect them to forecast todays weather correctly but when they are predicting the weather five days or even a week ahead the longer- term forecast will automatically self-destruct at the end of the first day to prevent users complaining that it was wrong.

Nostalgia and Reality in Picasso, Schiele, and Klimt "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Gustav Klimt, Reclining Nude with Drapery, Back View (19171918), graphite on paper, 14 5/8 x 22 3/8 inches, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bequest of Scofield Thayer, 1982

I resisted the idea of writing about Obsession: Nudes by Klimt, Schiele, and Picasso from the Scofield Thayer Collection at the Met Breuer because Ive published two pieces on Egon Schiele within the past two years, one in June and the other in April 2017. Both covered blockbuster retrospectives organized by Viennese museums to commemorate the centennial of the artists death, and each offered a very different perspective on his work. The first, at the Albertina, was a chronological accounting of his drawings, and the second, at the Leopold, was a thematic survey weighted toward his paintings. Prior to these two, in November 2014, I had written a review of Schieles portraits at New Yorks Neue Galerie.

But here we are again, less for the sake of Schiele than for what he and fellow Austrian Expressionist Gustav Klimt represent vis--vis their exhibition-mate, Pablo Picasso. Ignoring, for a moment, the differences between Klimt and Schiele, what they do share is so at odds with Picassos shape-shifting output that their joint billing seems aimed not so much at addressing the treatment of the naked body at the dawn of Modernism, but rather at pegging Klimt and Schieles centennial to an even bigger box-office draw.

The exhibitions introductory wall text doesnt do much to explain the logic of the selection beyond its provenance in the collection (bequeathed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1982) of Scofield Thayer the co-owner and editor of Dial, the influential American journal of avant-garde art and literature who bought art that fascinated him with little attention to its market value:

While Pablo Picassos work had been shown in America, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele were unknown in this country at that time [the earl...

On Thursday, investors awoke to a promising sight a $300 candle that brought Bitcoins price off a $6,150 low so some thought that the worse for over for the market. But, as some investors were lured into a false sense of security, the market fell even further to establish new year-to-date lows.

Theres Blood In The Streets!

As some like to describe the current state of the cryptocurrency market, theres blood on the streets! Taking a glance at cryptocurrency prices as it stands, it becomes quickly evident that blood of may as well be on the streets of this nascent industry.

On Friday afternoon, Bitcoin unexpectedly fell by over $350 dollars, from $6,425 to a low of $6,025 on the back of an influx of selling volume. This bearish movement quickly cascaded throughout the whole market, with altcoins experiencing a similar decline. With this move, the valuation of all cryptocurrencies has established a new year-to-date low at $209 billion.

As is a common theme in any market, investors did their best to draw connections to announcements and this price drop. Some speculated that this was a direct result of the SECs recent verdict to delay a final decision on the fate of the VanEck and SolidX ETF. Many saw this ETF as a long time coming, as cryptocurrency industry leaders have been trying their hand at creating this form of an investment vehicle for years now.

Stepping back, one could note that this move is likely courtesy of an extended downtrend off Bitcoins most recent peak at $8,500. As NewsBTC editor and crypto analyst Joseph Young noted in a recent tweet, why should an announcement expected by many lead the market to tank on such a drastic scale?

The Weight of Trauma: Racial Profiling Has Lasting Effects "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From St. Louis Public Radio: A study from the Journal of Mental Health Counselling found that 81 percent of the African-Americans who reported racial discrimination were more likely to experience symptoms of PTSD.

Leon Sharpe, a human and organizational development specialist, agreed that trauma can have a powerful impact, especially when linked to racial profiling. He warned that the effects can be passed down through families.

Theres also the generational trauma that gets handed down from one generation to another in communities of color around experiencing racism, Sharpe said. There needs to be continued work to address that.'

Hodlers Are Hurting, Cryptos Crushed with Another $20 Billion Dumped "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

FOMO Moments

Another 2018 low is hit, Ethereum, XRP, Neo and Iota getting hammered

The rout has continued into the weekend as crypto markets plummeted to another low for the year. Another $20 billion has been dropped from markets as they slid below $210 billion for the first time in nine months.

Bitcoin failed to hold support at $6,400 and has dropped 4.7% on the day to $6,150. If the bears do not release their stranglehold it could easily fall below $6k and into dangerous territory. This is bad news for Ethereum which is at its lowest point for a year, down 11.4% to $320.

Altcoins are getting smashed with the majority of them dumping double figures. In the top ten, Ripples XRP is taking the biggest hit with a nosedive of 10.8% to $0.30, almost back to the price it was before things took off in December. Litecoin is also suffering heavily with a 10% slide to $56.60 and another yearly low. The rest are down between 6 and 8 percent as stablecoin Tether climbs the market cap charts.

Neo is in a world of pain with a 16% crash to $18, its lowest point since September 2017. Likewise with Iota, down 15% to $0.526, and Tezos shedding 14% to $1.40. All coins in the top twenty are in a bad way, Dash and Ethereum Classic have also lost double figures and the rest are not far behind. The only altcoin in the green in the top one hundred at the moment is Nxt which is up 8.4%. Metaverse ETP and Huobi Token are making marginal gains but nothing significant.

The only upside for Bitcoin is that its market dominance is now over 50% as the altcoins get dumped. The one year chart is looking very bubble like now as all altcoins return to their mid-2017 levels.

Total crypto market capitalization has dumped 7% on the day to around $209 billion. A new 2018 low was reached a few hours ago when $20 billion left the markets in 18 hours plunging them down to just over $207 billion. Trade volume has remained at $13 billion but it is all one way at the moment out of the cryptocurrency door. The words fomo, lambo and moon are now distant memories as hodlers lick their wounds and uninstall their Blockfolio app.......

Ink Protocol Enables Cross Platform Buying & Selling with Decentralized Reputation and Escrow "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

After running the Listia P2P marketplace for over 9 years, the Ink Protocol team realized that the problems they were trying to solve could be generalized across all types of marketplaces. Building on those years of experience and learning from over 100M items traded on Listia, they launched a decentralized transaction system that can be used on any marketplace. The system includes self-sovereign reputation, decentralized escrow, and dispute resolution.

Ink Protocols decentralized transaction system is a great way to focus, as Vitalik recommended. Taking this tip a level higher, the team projected that a self-owned reputation that can move from one marketplace or app to another will change the way people buy and sell online. Ink Protocol took these two critical points into account as well as a third, 2M items listed using XNK ensures mass adoption, making XNK one of the largest real-world consumer applications on a blockchain.

Seller reputation is an important asset because buyers often choose sellers on the basis of their reputation. This is particularly true when the quality of the goods or services are hard to measure and the parties cannot perfectly predict the outcome of the transaction. As a consequence, the seller will be mindful of building and maintaining a good reputation through the information that buyers have about the seller, including previous transactions and the reports of other buyers.

Buyers will often pay higher prices from a seller with a better reputation and prefer marketplaces like eBay, Amazon, and Etsy, rather than taking a risk with lower prices from a seller with a lower reputation. As a result, sellers work extremely hard to maintain a pristine seller reputation through great customer service, fast shipping, and quality products. Craigslist, OLX, and Facebook Marketplace have an extremely wide reach and are free to use. There are no transaction or listing fees in mos.....

Bitcoin Eclipses 50% Crypto Market Dominance For First Time Since December "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bitcoin has long been at the forefront of the crypto industry; and it seems with the markets most recent move downwards, Bitcoins dominance over the rest of the market may continue, or at least for a little while longer.

Bitcoin Dominance Surges Amidst Crypto Downtrend

The crypto market dropped by a collective 7% in the past 24 hours, but Bitcoin has been doing better than others. At the time of writing, Bitcoin has currently posted a loss of 5%, while cryptos like Ethereum, XRP, and Litecoin have fallen by over double that percentage figure. However, the three aforementioned altcoins arent alone in their double-digit decline, with dozens, if not hundreds of altcoins seeing 24-hour declines that eclipse 10%.

This widespread capitulation in altcoins has led Bitcoins dominance figure to surpass 50% for the first time since Decembers BTC boom.

But, this was not an overnight occurrence, with altcoins seeing a dominance pullback for the better part of three months, rising from a May low of ~36% to 50% as we stand today. Todays market drop only helped this figure move over the ever so important 50% level.

While Bitcoins relative strength surprised more than a few investors, to an assortment of experienced traders, this comparable astronomical rise was to be expected.

As reported by NewsBTC earlier this week, Tom Lee, the head of research at Fundstrat, explained why BTC has been seeing a dominance run. Speaking to CNBC viewers, the Fundstrat executive highlighted Bitcoins history from a market perspective, drawing attention to the assets historical command over the industry, as it held 80% of cryptos market share for just shy of 8 years.

Lee went on to draw attention to last years altcoin upswing, where ICOs and overly-ambitious projects became a crypto investors preferred investment vehicle. This resulted in Bitcoins dominance falling to an all-time low at 37%, with many altcoin proponents expecting Bitcoin to further recede into obscurity. But against all odds, altcoins recently saw a substantial pullback as the Bitcoin permabull explained in the following statement:

Bitcoins dominance has bee...

Considered Opinion on Gas Pipelines and Eminent Domain in WV & VA "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Property rights need to be basic in the U.S.

Eminent Domain, Property Worth & Gas Pipelines Have Become Hot Topics

Essay by George Neall, Rockingham County, VA, August 6, 2018

Studies have documented that the construction of gas pipelines can cause the value of properties impacted by the pipelines to decrease an average of more than 30%. Other studies have documented similar decreases in land values caused by fracking. Who pays for these losses? Beyond the decrease in appraised property values, what are some of the other losses that occur as a result of pipeline construction?

There seems to be little useful and publicly available information on getting fairly compensated for the loss of your land, your quiet enjoyment, and other factors if your property is confiscated, despite the fact that condemnation proceedings are not uncommon. You are typically on-you-own when it comes to this. Most people hire an attorney to represent them in such matters. Finding a knowledgeable attorney who has a successful track record in such cases is very important.

Clearing a pipeline pathway through forested and mountainous land will result in the loss of many tons of topsoil. In one instance (not related to pipeline construction) documented in Texas, 23 tons of topsoil per acre were lost in just one rain event on fairly flat land with a slope of just 4%. Who will pay landowners for the loss of topsoil from their land where pipeline construction will result in the denuding of land? In many areas where the pipeline will be installed, ground slopes exceed 50%. Even after being reclaimed, erosion will be astronomical compared to pre-pipeline conditions, especially in forested land.

How much would it cost to have topsoil trucked in and spread on the ground to replace the topsoil that was washed away? What thickness of topsoil loss is equivalent to 23 tons per acre? The answer, shown in the simple calculations below, is just 1/8 in! Soil is not renewable in the classical sense. It takes a long time to form. Allowing topsoil to erode from landowners properties is akin to stealing money from them. Will we allow topsoil thieves get off scot-free like all of the crooked too-big-to-fail bankers?

The weight of a one-foot thickness of topsoil covering one acre of land area is approximately 4,000,000 lbs. Using 23 tons of topsoil loss per acre, we can c...

Simon Cowell admits to life-long affair with himself "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Shamed X-Factor chief Simon Cowell was left facing difficult questions today after details of his sordid affair with himself were revealed by his former lover.

Lauren Silverman, whose own affair with Cowell ended when she discovered that he was seeing himself behind her back, claims the TV producer took himself on secret luxury holidays, wined and dined himself in top London restaurants, and regularly booked himself into single rooms in 5-star hotels for one-in-a-bed romps. He then cruelly ended his relationship with Silverman by telling her its not you, its me. Literally.

Cowells uncontrollable erotic narcissism, which he claimed had stopped when he met ex-fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy, was re-ignited several months ago following the 53-year-olds chance encounter with a mirror in his eight-million pound LA retreat. My eyes met me from across the room, said Cowell. I tried to pull myself away, but I knew it was too late. Id fallen for myself once again. Im sorry.

US socialite Silverman has claimed that she once secretly witnessed the multi-millionaire TV personality giving himself a full X-Factor style judgement of his own body in front of a full-length mirror. He knew I was in the house, that was the sick part, sobbed Silverman. Hed rub himself down in oil and declare, out loud, that Simon has serious talent, before telling his own backside that he was impressed and that he was putting it through to booty camp. I hope he and himself will be happy together they deserve each other.

Cowell was apologetic today. I realise Ive hurt a lot of people, but this is between me, myself and I, said the love rat from aboard his five-million-pound yacht, which he named Simon. I would be grateful if people could respect my privacy over this matter. I dont mean for good just until the next series of X-Factor starts.

Top forestry official out in Malaysia "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A top official is out of his post as head of Sabahs forestry department, which oversees forests in the Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. According to press reports, Datuk Sam Mannan will be removed from his role as head of the Sabah Forestry Department. No reason has been given for the action, but the director had been slated to step down. The Star reports that Mannan was given three months notice effective Aug 1. The news follows revelations that Sabahs former Chief Miniser Musa Aman is being investigated by Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the aftermath of his partys poor showing in Malaysias May general election. Aman lost his position in June when Sabahs state assembly backed rival Shafie Apdal as Chief Minister. Mannan served under Aman since 2003. Mannans reign as Sabahs top forestry official was not without controversy itself. Often blunt and outspoken toward critics, he aggravated timber companies and won accolades from conservationists by converting hundreds of thousands of hectares of rainforest in forestry concessions into permanent forest reserves, making them off-limits from logging and safeguarding them for Sabahs endangered species like orangutans and pygmy elephants. He angered environmentalists but pleased palm oil companies by re-zoning nearly 100,000 hectares of degraded forest land for oil palm plantations. He drew the ire of local community groups with what they saw as harsh crackdowns on forest encroachers, but won recognition internationally for his willingness to experiment with new approaches to tropical forest management,

New Slightly Faster Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 fork of ccminer Available "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Yet another update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 (source) with a bit more extra performance thanks to optimizations done to hamsi/Echo/echo-simd. The X16S support should be fixed in this release as well as it was broken in the previous, but our quick tests in a few pools show that no shares are being accepted low difficulty or invalid shares getting reported by the pools, so it may need some more work. X16S support is now really fixed, make sure you download the miner again if you have downloaded the initial binary that was released for the fix applied.

The ultimate goal of this miner is apparently to take the top spot in terms of X16x performance from the current leader z-enemy 1.15a and this release is a step closer to that goal. Our tests on GTX 1080 Ti show that Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 is still a tiny bit behind in terms of pure performance, however you should not forget that the z-enemy miner contains a 1% developer fee built-in and that already makes things pretty much even on actual performance. It is always good to have some competition as it drives things forward.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid induces Nrf2 nuclear translocation in vivo and attenuates renal damage and apoptosis in the ischemia and reperfusion model. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Phytomedicine. 2013 Jul 15 ;20(10):775-9. Epub 2013 Apr 30. PMID: 23643094 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic acid induces Nrf2 nuclear translocation in vivo and attenuates renal damage and apoptosis in the ischemia and reperfusion model. Abstract:  It has been shown that the pretreatment with nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA), a lignan with direct and indirect antioxidant properties, protects against the ischemia-reperfusion (I/R)-induced renal oxidant damage. Although it has been shown that NDGA induces Nrf2 nuclear translocation in renal epithelial LLC-PK1 cells in culture, it is unknown if NDGA may induce Nrf2 translocation in vivo. In this work was explored if NDGA is able to induce in vivo Nrf2 nuclear translocation in kidneys of rats submitted to uni-nephrectomy (U-NX) or I/R injury. Four groups of male Wistar rats were used: U-NX, NDGA, I/R, and I/R+NDGA. NDGA was injected i.p. (10mg/kg/day) starting 48 h before I/R. Kidney samples were obtained at 3 h of reperfusion after to measure Nrf2 translocation. Additional groups of rats were studied at 24 h of reperfusion to measure histological damage and apoptosis. NDGA was able to induce Nrf2 translocation in vivo in kidneys of rats submitted to both U-NX and I/R injury and to protect against renal histological damage and apoptosis. It is concluded that the pretreatment of NDGA is able to induce in vivo nuclear Nrf2 translocation in kidney of rats suggesting that this may be involved in the renoprotection against I/R.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid might be effective for the development of a novel Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

n/a PMID:  Biomed Res Int. 2015 ;2015:734548. Epub 2015 Apr 6. PMID: 25945343 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid Disrupts the Antioxidant Ability of Helicobacter pylori through the Repression of SodB Activity In Vitro. Abstract:  Iron-cofactored superoxide dismutase (SodB) of Helicobacter pylori plays an indispensable role in the bacterium's colonization of the stomach. Previously, we demonstrated that FecA1, a Fe(3+)-dicitrate transporter homolog, contributes to SodB activation by supplying ferrous iron (Fe(2+)) to SodB, and fecA1-deletion mutant strains have reduced gastric mucosal-colonization ability in Mongolian gerbils, suggesting that FecA1 is a possible target for the development of a novel eradication therapy. This study aimed to identify novel FecA1-binding compounds in silico and then examined the effect of a predicted FecA1-binding compound on H. pylori SodB activity in vitro. Specifically, we demonstrated that nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) is a predicted FecA1-binding compound. NDGA reduced intracellular Fe(2+) levels in H. pylori and reduced SodB activity. Additionally, NDGA increased H2O2 sensitivity of H. pylori and increased the metronidazole (Mtz) sensitivity. The present study demonstrated that NDGA repressed SodB activity associated with the gastric mucosal-colonization via inhibition of intracellular Fe(2+) uptake by FecA1, suggesting that NDGA might be effective for the development of a novel eradication therapy.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid ameliorates cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity and potentiates its anti-tumor activity. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2015 Sep ;28(1):634-42. Epub 2015 Aug 3. PMID: 26247680 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic acid ameliorates cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity and potentiates its anti-tumor activity in DMBA induced breast cancer in female Sprague-Dawley rats. Abstract:  Cisplatin is a widely used antineoplastic drug, but its clinical usefulness is limited due to dose dependent nephrotoxicity. Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) is a natural compound with broad pharmacological properties like antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activity. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the possible beneficial effects of NDGA on cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity as well as its anticancer activity in rats bearing DMBA induced mammary tumors. The effect of NDGA on cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity was evaluated by checking serum nephrotoxicity markers, antioxidant enzymes and inflammatory markers level and kidney histopathology. NDGA induced amelioration of cisplatin nephrotoxicity was clearly visible from significant reductions in serum blood urea nitrogen (86.51 g/dl) and creatinine (5.30 g/dl) levels and significant improvement in body weight change (-10.34 g) and kidney weight (728 mg/kg). The protective effect of NDGA against cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity in the rats was further confirmed by significant restoration of antioxidant enzymes like SOD (86.28% inhibition), inflammatory markers like TNF- (34.6 pg/ml) and histopathological examination. Moreover, our results showed that NDGA potentiated anti-breast cancer activity of cisplatin through an increment in the expression of antioxidant enzymes like SOD (85.35% inhibition) in breast cancer tissue. These results indicated that NDGA potentiated the anti-breast cancer activity of cisplatin, which was clearly evident from the tumor volume and % tumor inhibition in breast cancer rats. The current study demonstrated that NDGA may modify the therapeutic effect of cisplatin in DMBA induced breast cancer in female Sprague-Dawley rats.

Dutch Anti-Migrant Politician Takes Own Life After She Was Raped by Muslim Gang "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A city councilor in The Hague and member of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party has taken her own life, hours after posting a video on Facebook in which she claimed she was gang-raped by Muslims as part of an intimidation campaign.

Willie Dille, 53, reportedly ended her own life on Wednesday, shortly after sharing a video on social media in which she claimed to have been kidnapped and raped by a Muslim gang over a year ago.

Dille served as an MP for the anti-immigrant Freedom Party from 2010-2012 before returning to her seat on The Hague city council.

The partys leader, Geert Wilders, is an outspoken critic of Islam. The suicide was confirmed by local Freedom Party leader Karen Gerbrands who said Dille could no longer bear what had happened to her and the reactions she had had.

My Personal Journey on How I Went From Sick to Healthy "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

This website was created 21 years ago, in 1997, when I combined my two primary passions in life health and technology and made it my mission to share exciting new developments in natural health with a wider audience.

Thanks to you, this site has become one of the most visited natural health websites in the world for the last 12 years, with more than 10 million unique visitors each month and more than 80 million unique visitors annually.

Because of your loyal support, we've slowly but surely awakened the world to the false promises of the fatally flawed conventional medical view, which claims disease is best treated with drugs, and that the government knows what's best for your health and should be allowed to dictate your health options.

In the video above, I discuss my own journey toward health, which ultimately led me to my present-day philosophies and recommendations.

This video and article were initially published during three years ago during anniversary week. It was a big hit, and since we've had a significant influx of new subscribers since then, I'm rerunning it for those who missed it.

Learning Through Experience

Experience is a formidable teacher, and much of what I'm teaching today grew out of the lessons I learned as I tried to get healthier. I made plenty of mistakes, and fell for many of the lies, deceptions and confusion of conventional medicine.

Like so many others, I grew up eating cereal for breakfast, and I fully believed margarine was healthy. My diet was high in carbs and sugars and low in fat, and there's little doubt this played a significant role in dental decay, which I struggled with throughout a large portion of my life.

By the time I was an adult, I had a mouth full of amalgam fillings. Eventually, I discovered the truth about amalgam that it's actually 50 percent mercury and in 2009 I approached Charlie Brown (president of the Alliance for Mercury Free Dentistry) at a Health Freedom Expo in Chicago.

At that event, I offered to partner with him to raise awareness about mercury in dentistry and to help get this toxin out of dentistry for good.

It's been a highly successful partnership, and on October 10, 2013, a legally binding international treaty to control the use of this toxic metal was signed into action, thanks largely to the work of the Campaign for Mercury-Free Dentistry, the project organized and led by Charlie Brown.

The treaty, named the United Nations Minamata Convention on Mercury, requires the phasing out of many mercury-containing products by 2020. Importantly, the treaty mar...

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid enhances the activities of aminoglycosides against methicillin- sensitive and resistant Staphylococcus aureus. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Front Microbiol. 2015 ;6:1195. Epub 2015 Oct 27. PMID: 26579101 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic acid enhances the activities of aminoglycosides against methicillin- sensitive and resistant Staphylococcus aureus in vitro and in vivo. Abstract:  Infections caused by methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) are prevalent. MRSA infections are difficult to treat and there are no new classes of antibiotics produced to the market to treat infections caused by the resistant bacteria. Therefore, using antibiotic enhancers to rescue existing classes of antibiotics is an attractive strategy. Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) is an antioxidant compound found in extracts from plant Larrea Tridentata. It exhibits antimicrobial activity and may target bacterial cell membrane. Combination efficacies of NDGA with many classes of antibiotics were examined by chequerboard method against 200 clinical isolates of MRSA and MSSA. NDGA in combination with gentamicin, neomycin, and tobramycin was examined by time-kill assays. The synergistic combinations of NDGA and aminoglycosides were tested in vivo using a murine skin infection model. Calculations of the fractional inhibitory concentration index (FICI) showed that NDGA when combined with gentamicin, neomycin, or tobramycin displayed synergistic activities in more than 97% of MSSA and MRSA, respectively. Time kill analysis demonstrated that NDGA significantly augmented the activities of these aminoglycosides against MRSA and MSSA in vitro and in murine skin infection model. The enhanced activity of NDGA resides on its ability to damage bacterial cell membrane leading to accumulation of the antibiotics inside bacterial cells. We demonstrated that NDGA strongly revived the therapeutic potencies of aminoglycosides in vitro and in vivo. This combinational strategy could contribute major clinical implications to treat antibiotic resistant bacterial infections.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid and -mangostin could be candidates for coadjuvant therapy in cases of drug-resistant Tuberculosis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2016 Feb ;31:149-57. Epub 2015 Dec 29. PMID: 26735610 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) and-mangostin inhibit the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis by inducing autophagy. Abstract:  Tuberculosis (TB) remains as a global health problem. The prevalence of this infection is related to the association with other diseases, such as HIV, neglect treatment and misuse of antibiotics. Hence, the identification of new drugs is required to eradicate TB. Possible alternatives to existing antibiotics include pure compounds extracted from medicinal plants, which are an important source of antimicrobial agents. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) and-mangostin on Mycobacterium tuberculosis growth and bacterial survival in infected macrophages derived from the human THP-1 cell line and monocytes. Our results show that both compounds directly inhibit M. tuberculosis growth in liquid medium with Minimal Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC) of 250 and62 g/mL respectively, likely through preventing bacterial replication. In addition, NDGA and -mangostin were able to induce autophagy in human cells at lower concentrations (7 and 6 g/mL, respectively) and contributed to the elimination of intracellular bacteria. NDGA and -mangostin could be candidates for coadjuvant therapy in cases of drug-resistant TB, and their ability to enhance the immune response by promoting autophagy might contribute to TB treatment.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid can act as inhibitor of the glucose transporter GLUT1. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  FEBS Open Bio. 2016 Oct ;6(10):1000-1007. Epub 2016 Aug 23. PMID: 27761359 Abstract Title:  Effect of nordihydroguaiaretic acid on cell viability and glucose transport in human leukemic cell lines. Abstract:  The polyphenol nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) has antineoplastic properties, hence it is critical to understand its action at the molecular level. Here, we establish that NDGA inhibits glucose uptake and cell viability in leukemic HL-60 and U-937 cell lines. We monitored hexose uptake using radio-labeled 2-deoxyglucose (2DG) and found that the inhibition by NDGA followed a noncompetitive mechanism. In addition, NDGA blocked hexose transport in human red blood cells and displaced prebound cytochalasin B from erythrocyte ghosts, suggesting a direct interaction with the glucose transporter GLUT1. We propose a model for the mechanism of action of NDGA on glucose uptake. Our study shows for the first time that NDGA can act as inhibitor of the glucose transporter GLUT1.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid impairs prostate cancer cell migration and tumor metastasis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Oncotarget. 2016 Dec 27 ;7(52):86225-86238. PMID: 27863391 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic acid impairs prostate cancer cell migration and tumor metastasis by suppressing neuropilin 1. Abstract:  Tumor metastasis is a major cause leading to the deaths of cancer patients. Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) is a natural product that has been demonstrated to show therapeutic values in multiple diseases. In this study, we report that NDGA can inhibit cell migration and tumor metastasis via a novel mechanism. NDGA suppresses NRP1 function by downregulating its expression, which leads to attenuated cell motility, cell adhesion to ECM and FAK signaling in cancer cells. Moreover, due to its cross-cell type activity on NRP1 suppression, NDGA also impairs angiogenesis function of endothelial cells and fibronectin assembly by fibroblasts, both of which are critical to promote metastasis. Based on these comprehensive effects, NDGA effectively suppresses tumor metastasis in nude mice model. Our findings reveal a novel mechanism underlying the anti-metastasis function of NDGA and indicate the potential value of NDGA in NRP1 targeting therapy for selected subtypes of cancer.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid reduced West Nile virus and Zika virus multiplication. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2017 08 ;61(8). Epub 2017 Jul 25. PMID: 28507114 Abstract Title:  Antiviral Activity of Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid and Its Derivative Tetra--Methyl Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid against West Nile Virus and Zika Virus. Abstract:  Flaviviruses are positive-strand RNA viruses distributed all over the world that infect millions of people every year and for which no specific antiviral agents have been approved. These viruses include the mosquito-borne West Nile virus (WNV), which is responsible for outbreaks of meningitis and encephalitis. Considering that nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) has been previously shown to inhibit the multiplication of the related dengue virus and hepatitis C virus, we have evaluated the effect of NDGA, and its methylated derivative tetra--methyl nordihydroguaiaretic acid (MN), on the infection of WNV. Both compounds inhibited the infection of WNV, likely by impairing viral replication. Since flavivirus multiplication is highly dependent on host cell lipid metabolism, the antiviral effect of NDGA has been previously related to its ability to disturb the lipid metabolism, probably by interfering with the sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBP) pathway. Remarkably, we observed that other structurally unrelated inhibitors of the SREBP pathway, such as PF-429242 and fatostatin, also reduced WNV multiplication, supporting that the SREBP pathway may constitute a druggable target suitable for antiviral intervention against flavivirus infection. Moreover, treatment with NDGA, MN, PF-429242, and fatostatin also inhibited the multiplication of the mosquito-borne flavivirus Zika virus (ZIKV), which has been recently associated with birth defects (microcephaly) and neurological disorders. Our results point to SREBP inhibitors, such as NDGA and MN, as potential candidates for further antiviral development against medically relevant flaviviruses.

Are Cryptocurrencies A Fictional Dream? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

COMMENT: Dear Mr. Armstrong; I suppose we have to learn the hard way. Our electronic currency system crashed here in Zimbabwe. Many people were using it because of the old hyperinflation. The argument that private money would be better than government made a lot of sense here given the history. Most people were using US dollars and just about all other currencies from surrounding countries. We lived exactly the experience you have described when the confidence in government collapses. Yet now, many are wondering if this cryptocurrency is just another way to undermine the economy.

JKW

REPLY: I believe the vast majority of the world has never looked at exactly what was taking place in Zimbabwe. The new mobile money emerged as the leading transaction platform in Zimbabwe because of the previous hyperinflation. However, its weaknesses came into focus after the dominant EcoCash network in Zimbabwe collapsed for two days. Consumer businesses were left floundering in an already difficult economy. Many people were just locked out of the economy with no alternative.

EcoCash was competing against smaller platforms run by state-controlled telcos NetOne and Telecel Zimbabwe. The people preferred a privately run system the to the government. EcoCash was conducting business with more than eight million registered. It was also being used by expat Zimbabweans in South Africa and Botswana. This has obviously exposed the weakness of the electronic currency market. Take out the power grid and the economy will collapse overnight.

The Minsky Moment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A number of people have asked if I ever looked at Hyman Minskys concepts in forecasting the economy. Minskys Financial Instability Hypothesis failed not because of the fact that he attempted to interject cycles and even listened to Schumpeter, the problem was that he was an economist and not a trader. His own attempts to devise a mathematical model of his hypothesis were unsuccessful. The first of Minskys two papers in the AER set out a mathematical model of a financially driven trade cycle developed during his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1954 but he never attempted to develop the model further.

There have been many people who have claimed they used his model and were able to forecast the 2007 crash. I know many traders around the world in a professional capacity and I do not know ANYONE who did not see the crash coming. Being able to say this is a bubble and it will end badly and was the topic of the movie The Big Short, is by no means unusual for many who are seasoned. I know of no profession who bought into the whole Bitcoin nonsense of how it would replace the dollar, end central banks, and start a new age all within a matter of months.

Minskys observations of the Great Depression are seriously flawed. The primary problem was that they were focused domestically. They did not take into consideration the entire world economy. His hypothesis of financial instability argued that financial crisis are endemic in capitalism because periods of economic prosperity encouraged borrowers and lenders to be progressively reckless. This excess optimism creates financial bubbles and then later busts. Therefore, capitalism is prone to move from periods of financial stability to instability. This is a type of market failure and it justifies government regulation to smooth the cycle, which is also his agreement with Keynesianism.

Minskys Financial Instability Hypothesis is merely something that monitors domestic considerations and from that perspective, he completely failed to comprehend the Great Depression. It was far more than merely excessive debt etc. He agreed also with Gailbraith who blamed corporations and never even looked out the wholesale collapse of government debt on a major worldwide scale in 1931. Under Minskys theory, he endorses government power to smooth out the business cycle which they have never been a...

Local cast shares compelling story of legendary Cherokee Nancy Ward

TAHLEQUAH, Okla.  The award-winning short film Nanyehi will be presented at the 2018 Tribal Film Festival hosted on Aug. 25 in the Webb Auditorium at Northeastern State University.

The screening begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A session with producers and cast, including Becky Hobbs, Winnie Guess Perdue, Travis Fite and David Barnoski.

We are honored to have the opportunity to share this film with the Tahlequah community in the capital of our beloved Cherokee Nation, said Becky Hobbs, Nanyehi co-writer and direct descendant of Nancy Ward. We made this story come to life in Tahlequah, and it is a true joy to bring it back home to share with our families, friends and fellow Cherokee.

The film shares the story of Nancy Ward, legendary Cherokee warrior turned peacemaker, and her role in the fight to preserve tribal land in the 18th century.  The struggle between peace and war is skillfully depicted by a local cast of 44 from northeast Oklahoma, the vast majority being Cherokee Nation citizens.

We are humbled and grateful for the amount of support we have had on this project, said David Webb, co-producer of the film. The passion this incredible story generates to audiences everywhere has fueled its success, but we would not be where we are today without the gracious support weve received from the Cherokee Nation and the Tahlequah community. We hope everyone will join us as we celebrate the life and legacy of Nancy Ward.

10 Myths about Students "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published August 11, 2018

Are you a student? If the answer is in the affirmative, then you must be familiar with some of the myths about student and their lifestyle. Sometimes these myths are proven correct but the rest of the time maximum of them are proven wrong ideas about the student.

Do you know what myths mean? According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of myth means a widely held but false belief or idea. Thats why being a student you never pay heed to legends instead of that you guys need to be focused on your career.

When I was a student, there was also some myths about students, and they were trendy. Today I will try to share some of those myths which were popular when I was a student and some of todays new generation myths about students so that you can know the truth and feel relaxed.

Graduation is Four Years:

It is the most common myth. Everybody thinks that graduation is only four years and every student can complete their graduation within four years which is a wrong idea. The absolute reality is more than 60 percent of students cant finish their graduation within four years, in fact, most of them need more than five or six years.

Everyone Buys College Essay:

Many people especially students think that they can cut a good figure in the exam if they buy college essays online. But the reality is getting appropriate college essay according to ones need is not that much easy and most of the students cant manage it. Moreover, I think that if students have a bright idea about the importance of education, then it will be easy to cut a good figure in the exam without buying a college essay.

295 Navajo Farmers & Ranchers Sue the EPA & Other Defendants for Gold King Mine Spill "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

San Juan River polluted as result of Gold King Mine; Navajo Nation not happy with EPAs lack of response.

Published August 11, 2018

WINDOW ROCK  On Friday, August 3, 2018, 295 Navajo farmers and ranchers filed suit against the USEPA and a number of private defendants responsible for the 2015 Gold King Mine Spill in Silverton, Colorado. As a result of the spill, these 295 Navajo farmers and ranchers were forced to stop using water from the San Juan River, the main source of water on the Navajo Nation, to irrigate their crops and water their livestock.  The lawsuit seeks approximately $75 million in damages.

On August 5, 2015, the EPA and private contractors hired by the EPA to conduct environmental remediation were performing unsafe excavation work on the Gold King Mine when it burst, spilling 3,000,000 gallons of hazardous waste, including 880,000 pounds of heavy metals, into Cement Creek a tributary of the Animas River.  The Animas River flows into the San Juan River, which runs through 215 miles of the Navajo Nation.

President of the Navajo Nation, Russell Begaye, states the San Juan River has enormous cultural and spiritual significance for our nation in addition to its practical and economic importance.  It is our lifeblood.  Most of the farmers and ranchers have lived and farmed on these lands for generations. The spill was a disaster for the Nation and its people.

As a result of the spill, Navajo farmers were unable to irrigate crops. Many lost their harvest which was their sole source of income, noted Speaker of the 23rd Navajo Nation Council, LoRenzo Bates.  Those who were able to save crops by trucking in water could not sell their crops because of stigma associated with irrigation from waters contaminated by the Gold King Mine Spill.  Navajo ranchers were forced to purchase feed and haul in water at significant expense in order to keep their livestock from drinking from the river.  Then, when our ranchers tried to sell their livestock, they had to do so at significantly reduced prices due to the public stigma.  Our people endured clear and significant losses, and I look forward...

Heinrich, Udall Announce $249K Grant To APS For Native American Language Program "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published August 11, 2018

WASHINGTON   On Friday U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) announced that the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) Indian Education Departments Din Bizaad & A:shiwi Language Program has received a $249,438 grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The funding will support three years of instruction of both the Navajo (Din) and Zuni (A:shiwi) languages in APS schools at the elementary and middle school levels.

Udall and Heinrich led the effort to include the Native American Language Program as part of the Every Students Succeed Act (ESSA), the latest federal education law that overhauled No Child Left Behind and passed in 2015. This critical funding program helps school districts that serve tribal communities create programs to instruct in Native languages to promote their revitalization and maintenance.

Native language programs build stronger connections between generations of Native families and communities, said Udall. Im proud that the funding we helped secure in the Every Student Succeeds Act is being put to good use strengthening and revitalizing Native languages, which are crucial to promoting higher academic achievement outcomes among Native youth. As the vice chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, I will continue to work to ensure that Native students have every opportunity to deepen their connection to Native language and culture while getting an excellent education.

Ive seen firsthand how Native students thrive with an education that focuses on their own traditions, particularly the preservation of Native languages, which is integral to maintaining cultural identity,said Heinrich.Instruction in Native languages promotes creativity, reduces the achievement gap, boosts high school graduation rates and college enrollment, and yields long-term benefits outside the classroom. Thats why I fought so hard to include this funding in the Every Student Succeeds Act. I will never stop believing in the boundless potential of all of New Mexicos children. I will keep fighting for investments...

Man Being Chased By Baby Squirrel Calls Police For Help "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

What could be more menacing than a tiny baby squirrel? Literally anything or so you might assume.

Turns out, this little one actually gave somebody quite a scare.

Credit: Polizei Karlsruhe

On Thursday morning, police in the town of Karlsruhe, Germany, were contacted by a man in the throes of an unusual "emergency." While out and about, a persistent animal had evidently taken special interest in him, and he wasn't taking it well.

Here's how authorities paraphrased the man's distress call: "Help, I'm being followed by a squirrel!"

A patrol car was dispatched to the spot, and sure enough, officers found the caller was indeed being chased by the fluffy-tailed creature. Fortunately, they were able to intervene capturing the man's pursuer and placing her in a box for safekeeping.

Tuckered out from all the running, the squirrel promptly fell asleep.

But, as it turns out, she was the one who needed help.

Police believe the baby squirrel had become separated from her mother and, as is sometimes the case, instinctually fixated on the man as her replacement parent. Apparently, the person she chose read the situation somewhat differently.

"He was certainly feeling a bit threatened, Christina Krenz, spokesperson for the police, told The Guardian.

Thankfully, the officers who stopped the squirrel weren't so intimidated....

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid improves metabolic dysregulation induced by a western diet. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Pharmacol Exp Ther. 2018 May ;365(2):281-290. Epub 2018 Feb 22. PMID: 29472517 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid, a Lignan from(Creosote Bush), Protects Against American Lifestyle-Induced Obesity Syndrome Diet-Induced Metabolic Dysfunction in Mice. Abstract:  To determine the effects of nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) on metabolic and molecular changes in response to feeding a typical American fast food or Western diet, mice were fed an American lifestyle-induced obesity syndrome (ALIOS) diet and subjected to metabolic analysis. Male C57BL/6J mice were randomly assigned to the ALIOS diet, the ALIOS diet supplemented with NDGA (NDGA+ALIOS), or a control diet and were maintained on the specific diet for 8 weeks. Mice fed the ALIOS diet showed increased body, liver, and epididymal fat pad weight as well as increased plasma alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) levels (a measure of liver injury) and liver triglyceride content. Coadministration of NDGA normalized body and epididymal fat pad weight, ALT and AST levels, and liver triglycerides. NDGA treatment also improved insulin sensitivity but not glucose intolerance in mice fed the ALIOS diet. In mice fed the NDGA+ALIOS diet, NDGA supplementation induced peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor(PPAR; the master regulator of fatty acid oxidation) and mRNA levels of carnitine palmitoyltransferasesand, key genes involved in fatty acid oxidation, compared with the ALIOS diet. NDGA significantly reduced liver endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response C/EBP homologous protein, compared with chow or the ALIOS diet, and also ameliorated ALIOS diet-induced elevation of apoptosis signaling protein, caspase 3. Likewise, NDGA downregulated the ALIOS diet-induced mRNA levels of, fatty acid synthase, and diacylglycerol acyltransferaseNDGA treatment of ALIOS-fed mice upregulated the hepatic expression of antioxidant enzymes, glutathione peroxidase 4, and peroxiredoxin 3 proteins. In conclusion, we provide evidence that NDGA improves metabolic dysregulation by simultaneously modulating the PPARtranscription factor and key genes involved in fatty acid oxidation, key antioxidant and lipogenic enzymes, and apoptosis and ER stress signaling pathways.

Nordihydroguaiaretic acid can suppress progression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  IUBMB Life. 2018 May ;70(5):432-436. Epub 2018 Apr 10. PMID: 29637686 Abstract Title:  Nordihydroguaiaretic acid can suppress progression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Abstract:  Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a poorly understood disease mechanistically. MOG35-55 peptide induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is a broadly used model to study MS. Using this model we have earlier shown that the antioxidant tempol or the small molecule inhibitor of p38 SB203580 can effectively prevent EAE progression. This effect was mediated by means of regulating immune inflammation, signaling by the p38MAPK-SGK1 pathway, and oxidative stress. However, there is a need to test drugs that can be used in pharmacological intervention of EAE. Given that nordihydroguaiaretic Acid (NDGA) has been shown to possess anti-oxidant activity and capacity of antagonizing autoimmune inflammation, we tested the effect of NDGA in ameliorating EAE in the current study. NDGA showed significant beneficial effect against EAE with both anti-inflammation and antioxidant activity. NDGA could weaken the immune inflammation at least partly by inhibiting the oxidant stress-p38MAPK-SGK1 pathway representing a target for putative pharmacological intervention. 2018 IUBMB Life, 70(5):432-436, 2018.

Dogs Slept Outside Hospital For Weeks Until They Could Visit Patient "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Every day, staffers at the Hospital Agudo medical facility in Brazil apply their expertise to aid patients suffering from injuries or diseases. But this week, a special type of treatment was offered for a different sort of ailment.

It was to help heal a few broken hearts.

Late last month, on the day a local man was transferred to the hospital, folks working there first began noticing something unusual going on outside the main entrance.

A pair of dogs, for whatever reason, had chosen the space near the entryway as their new hangout. And they refused to leave.

Credit: Facebook/Hospital Agudo

For the next two weeks, the dogs remained, spending their days and nights camped out front. Turns out, the pups were there with a purpose.

As care staff came to learn, one of the dogs belonged to the patient who'd been admitted on the day of the dogs' arrival. Her name is Princess. The other dog, dubbed Scooby, is Princess's friend who decided to keep her company as she waited for her owner's return.

Veterinarian Maria Alice Altermann first learned about Princess and Scooby from her friend, a nurse at the hospital. She and a colleague were asked to bring the dogs in for a checkup.

But the dogs got more than just that.

Doctors at the hospital decided that, for the benefit of everyone, Princess and Scooby should be allowed to see the patient they'd been waiting for. So they were taken to a groomer, too, in preparation for the visit.

Afterward, they were carried thought the hospital corridors and then the long-awaited...

Little Kitten Comes Home One Day Carrying A Strange Baby On Her Back "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This little white kitten named Blanquis may still be less than a year old, but she already knows better than most what it means to have an open heart.

In fact, you might say she's paying it forward.

Last December, Yessica Rodriguez found Blanquis stranded on the streets near her home in Altamira, Mexico. The kitten was so young at the time, her eyes had yet to even open so Rodriguez took it upon herself to fill in for Blanquis' mom, raising her as a member of the family.

Blanquis has blossomed into a beautiful youngster, and she had apparently taken note of the love that made that possible.

Credit: Yessica Rodriguez

Rodriguez was preparing for work last Friday morning when she heard her husband calling out to her with a surprising announcement.

"He said, 'You have to come down here,'" Rodriguez told The Dodo. "'Your kitten has an animal on her back!'"

Confused about what he'd meant, Rodriguez hurried down to take a look and sure enough, this is what she saw:

Rodriguez couldn't believe her eyes. Indeed, Blanquis suddenly had a tiny passenger.

"Much to my surprise, it was a baby opossum," Rodriguez said.

It's unclear where exactly Blanquis had discovered the baby opossum, or how he came to lose his mother, but the little guy was clearly in need of a parental figure.

So, Blanquis had evidently allowed him to climb upon her back and carried him to the safety of her home.

The blocking of cyclooxygenase 2 by Nexrutine could be beneficial in cancer treatments. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Neoplasia. 2007 Nov ;9(11):893-9. PMID: 18030357 Abstract Title:  Regulation of Cox-2 by cyclic AMP response element binding protein in prostate cancer: potential role for nexrutine. Abstract:  We recently showed that Nexrutine, a Phellodendron amurense bark extract, suppresses proliferation of prostate cancer cell lines and tumor development in the transgenic adenocarcinoma of mouse prostate (TRAMP) model. Our data also indicate that the anti-proliferative effects of Nexrutine are emediated in part by Akt and Cyclic AMP response element binding protein (CREB). Cyclooxygenase (Cox-2), a pro-inflammatory mediator, is a CREB target that induces prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) and suppresses apoptosis. Treatment of LNCaP cells with Nexrutine reduced tumor necrosis factor alpha-induced enzymatic as well as promoter activities of Cox-2. Nexrutine also reduced the expression and promoter activity of Cox-2 in PC-3 cells that express high constitutive levels of Cox-2. Deletion analysis coupled with mutational analysis of the Cox-2 promoter identified CRE as being sufficient for mediating Nexrutine response. Immunohistochemical analysis of human prostate tumors show increased expression of CREB and DNA binding activity in high-grade tumors (three-fold higher in human prostate tumors compared to normal prostate; P = .01). We have identified CREB-mediated activation of Cox-2 as a potential signaling pathway in prostate cancer which can be blocked with a nontoxic, cost-effective dietary supplement like Nexrutine, demonstrating a prospective for development of Nexrutine for prostate cancer management.

Nexrutine treatment inhibited growth of pancreatic cancer cells through induction of apoptosis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Clin Cancer Res. 2014 Mar 1 ;20(5):1259-73. Epub 2014 Feb 11. PMID: 24520096 Abstract Title:  Combined targeting of STAT3/NF-B/COX-2/EP4 for effective management of pancreatic cancer. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Near equal rates of incidence and mortality emphasize the need for novel targeted approaches for better management of patients with pancreatic cancer. Inflammatory molecules NF-B and STAT3 are overexpressed in pancreatic tumors. Inhibition of one protein allows cancer cells to survive using the other. The goal of this study is to determine whether targeting STAT3/NF-B crosstalk with a natural product Nexrutine can inhibit inflammatory signaling in pancreatic cancer.EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: HPNE, HPNE-Ras, BxPC3, Capan-2, MIA PaCa-2, and AsPC-1 cells were tested for growth, apoptosis, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), NF-B, and STAT3 level in response to Nexrutine treatment. Transient expression, gel shift, chromatin immunoprecipitation assay was used to examine transcriptional regulation of COX-2. STAT3 knockdown was used to decipher STAT3/NF-B crosstalk. Histopathologic and immunoblotting evaluation was performed on BK5-COX-2 transgenic mice treated with Nexrutine. In vivo expression of prostaglandin receptor E-prostanoid 4 (EP4) was analyzed in a retrospective cohort of pancreatic tumors using a tissue microarray.RESULTS: Nexrutine treatment inhibited growth of pancreatic cancer cells through induction of apoptosis. Reduced levels and activity of STAT3, NF-B, and their crosstalk led to transcriptional suppression of COX-2 and subsequent decreased levels of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and PGF2. STAT3 knockdown studies suggest STAT3 as negative regulator of NF-B activation. Nexrutine intervention reduced the levels of NF-B, STAT3, and fibrosis in vivo. Expression of prostaglandin receptor EP4 that is known to play a role in fibrosis was significantly elevated in human pancreatic tumors.CONCLUSIONS: Dual inhibition of STAT3-NF-B by Nexrutine may overcome problems associated with inhibition of either pathway.

U.S. Is Killing Wild Horses For The Worst Reason "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The wild horses ran for their lives as noisy helicopters chased after them. The helicopters dipped down low and nearly clipped the horses heads. The terrified animals were so focused on galloping away that some of them didnt see the barbed wire fence that suddenly emerged in their path, and they toppled headfirst over the fence, crashing hard into the ground.

This was the scene an observer with the American Wild Horse Campaign watched on Tuesday at the Bible Springs Complex and the Sulphur Herd Management Area (HMA) in Southern Utah, two areas designated as public lands. This week, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a U.S. government agency, was trying to round up and remove up to 250 wild horses from these areas  but for the worst reason.

Credit: American Wild Horse Campaign

There are currently around 70,000 wild horses in the U.S., and theyre technically protected under federal law. However, the BLM believes there are too many wild horses running through public lands, and that theyre overgrazing and destroying the environment. However, animal welfare advocates believe the BLMs real reason for getting rid of horses is to make room for cattle.  

Wild horses eat grass and cattle eat grass, Grace Kuhn, communications director for the American Wild Horse Campaign, told The Dodo. But livestock brings in the money. Wild horses dont.

Credit: American Wild Horse Campaign

The way the BLM captures horses is very concerning to Kuhn.

Helicopters stampede the horses from miles, Kuhn said. Then they funnel them into this area, and let go what they call a Judas horse a trained domestic horse who has a harness. Horses are herd animals, so they follow the lead animal into wherever. So its tricking the horses by leading them into the trap.

The helicopters would be particularly stressful to the horses.

Dietary administration of Nexrutine inhibits rat liver tumorigenesis and induces apoptotic cell death in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Toxicol Rep. 2015 ;2:1-11. Epub 2014 Nov 13. PMID: 28962332 Abstract Title:  Dietary administration of Nexrutine inhibits rat liver tumorigenesis and induces apoptotic cell death in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells. Abstract:  Epidemiological studies suggested that plant-based dietary supplements can reduce the risk of liver cancer. Nexrutine (NX), an herbal extract from, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-tumor activities. In the present study, we have shown the anti-tumor potential of NX against Solt-Farber model with elimination of PH, rat liver tumor induced by diethylnitrosoamine (DEN) as carcinogen and 2-acetylaminofluorene (2-AAF) as co-carcinogen. The elucidation of mechanistic pathways was explored in human liver cancer cells. Dietary intake of NX significantly decreased the cell proliferation and inflammation, as well as increased apoptosis in the liver sections of DEN/2-AAF-treated rats. Moreover, NX (2.5-10 g/ml) exposure significantly decreased the viability of liver cancer cells and modulated the levels of Bax and Bcl-2 proteins levels. NX treatment resulted in increased cytochrome-release and cleavage of caspases 3 and 9. In addition, NX decreased the expression of CDK2, CDK4 and associated cyclins E1 and D1, while up-regulated the expression of p21, p27 and p53 expression. NX also enhanced phosphorylation of the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) ERK1/2, p38 and JNK1/2. Collectively, these findings suggested that NX-mediated protection against DEN/2-AAF-induced liver tumorigenesis involves decrease in cell proliferation and enhancement in apoptotic cell death of liver cancer cells.

Dangers of Pathological Altruism: Migrant Saved by Swedish Activist is a Wife Beating Child Abuser "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Theres a good chance youve been lectured on the virtues of selflessness. Regardless of how religious you are, putting others welfare before your own can carry a lot of clout.

But is acting on others behalf always a good thing? Should a willing altruist ever keep from extending a helping hand?

As it turns out, there are many situations in which unbridled benevolence may be a dangerous deed.

Say hello to pathological altruism. Broadly defined as good intentions gone awry by pathological altruism pioneer Barbara Oakley, the term applies to any helping behavior that ends up hurting either the provider or recipient of supposedly well-meaning intentions.

42-Year-Old Donkey Saved From Worst Place Finds The Friend She Always Needed "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When Hattie was around 34 years old, she was put up for auction to be sold for slaughter. She was incredibly underweight with long, overgrown hooves, and had clearly not been treated very well throughout her life. Rescuers from Longhopes Donkey Shelter in Bennett, Colorado, stepped in and were able to rescue all of the donkeys who were in danger that day. While most of the donkeys were put up for adoption, the shelter decided that senior Hattie had been through enough, and would stay with them for the rest of her life. 

We made that decision because we believe that animals should be treated with dignity, love, and respect, Victoria Schroeder, executive director at Longhopes Donkey Shelter, told The Dodo. We felt that Hattie did not receive that prior in her life and thats why someone dumped her to be slaughtered. But since the first day she arrived at Longhopes, she has changed everyones life. 

Credit: Victoria Schroeder

Now 42 years old, Hattie is the sweetest, most understanding animal around. Despite everything she has been through, she is nothing but patient and kind with everyone around her, and can sense when someone needs a little extra help. She often cares for young orphaned or abandoned donkeys who need a motherly figure, and shes always the first to sense when someone is nervous or upset, both animals and humans alike. 

Credit: Victoria Schroeder

We usually have our brand-new volunteers learn their skills with Hattie, Schroeder said. Other donkeys sometimes get nervous when a new volunteer handles them. But Hattie knows that they are new and she lets them pick up her hooves, brush her, lead her, without difficulty. She is truly a teacher here. She always shows us the way and makes us understand that everyone needs time to learn new things and its OK when we make mistakes we will get it next time. 

Hattie has truly become a mother figure at the shelter and is always around to comfort anyone who needs it which is how she ended up finding her best friend. ...

Nexrutine inhibits the ultraviolet B induced cutaneous inflammatory responses in SKH-1 mouse skin. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed. 2018 Jan ;34(1):82-90. Epub 2017 Oct 9. PMID: 28857273 Abstract Title:  Topical application of Nexrutine inhibits ultraviolet B-induced cutaneous inflammatory responses in SKH-1 hairless mouse. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation is the major contributor to skin inflammation which leads to the development of skin cancer. Hence, in this study, we studied the effect of Nexrutine (NX) on UVB-induced cutaneous inflammation and its mediators.METHODS: Ultraviolet absorption spectra of NX were measured by spectrophotometer. To conduct the photoprotective studies, SKH-1 hairless mice were topically treated with NX, 30 minutes before to the UVB (180 mJ/cm) exposure. Twenty hours of post-UVB irradiation, mouse skin was used for edema measurements, H&E staining, myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, and estimation of plasma cytokines. In addition, expression levels of inflammatory cytokines, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) were also determined by Western blot analysis.RESULTS: Nexrutine displayed absorbance over the UVB spectrum. NX significantly decreased the UVB-induced epidermal edema, skin thickness, leukocyte infiltration, number of the sunburn, and TUNEL-positive cells. NX treatment also decreased the number of mast cells, MPO activity, expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and inflammation mediator protein in mouse skin.CONCLUSION: These results provide evidences that NX inhibits the UVB-induced cutaneous inflammatory responses in SKH-1 mouse skin.

Endangered Sea Turtle Passed Away Because Someone Left Trash On A Beach "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Earlier this week, a young female sea turtle was found on a beach in Walton County, Florida, trapped between the rusted metal legs of a barstool.

Members of the South Walton Turtle Watch, a group that works to protect local sea turtles and nests, responded to a beachgoers report, but hopes of saving the turtle quickly disappeared when they realized just how long shed been trapped in her small metal prison.

Credit: South Walton Turtle Watch

Its believed that the Kemp's ridley sea turtle, a critically endangered species, had been pulled underwater by the weight of the stool, and subsequently drowned.

We could see no cause of death and think it was due to drowning, as it could not keep its head above the water, Sharon Maxwell, a member of the South Walton Turtle Watch, told The Dodo.

Despite the fact that the turtle had passed quite some time ago, the members wanted to free her.

Once the turtle and the stool were separated, the stool was examined for some sign of its origin, but none were found.

Credit: South Walton Turtle Watch

Kemps ridley turtles often hunt for crabs in shallow coastal areas, and due to the location of their hunting grounds, become entangled with marine debris, fishing nets and other gear.

The stool was most likely just another piece of refuse floating off the coast. And when garbage is left behind, turtles are the ones to suffer.

This is so very sad, and so easy to stop. Please do not leave your items, anything, on the beach, South Walton Turtle Watch wrote on Facebook. We did get this beautiful lady out of the chair. She was a critical endangered Kemps and of course she was dead. Look at her head to see what she went through. Poor thing, it must have been an awful death. Why can't we keep things off the beach at night?

Forest elephant DNA diverse, consistent, and distinct, study says "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Male elephants wander. As they mature and prepare to breed, they roam great distances in search of estrous females. These movements are key to elephant population dynamics: by breeding with females far from their family, males promote gene flow and ensure a genetically healthy population. In Africa, males of both forest and savanna elephants travel and compete for access to females to the extent of hybridizing, but what does this mean for elephant conservation? Over the last decade, research has shown that the DNA of forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) differs sufficiently from that of savanna elephants (L. africana) to be considered a separate species. A recent study examined the within-species genetic structure of the forest elephant across its range to better understand how genetically distinctive regional populations of the species are and how that might affect its conservation. A herd of savanna elephants at a water hole in Chobe National Park, Botswana. Note the more pointed ears and curved tusks. Image by Sue Palminteri/Mongabay The species debate African forest elephants have roamed the forests of West Africa and Central Africa for millions of years. They stand up to a meter (3 feet) shorter than savanna elephants and weigh about 2,700 kilograms (6,000 pounds), roughly half that of savanna elephants, which inhabit southern and East Africa. Forest elephants also have more rounded ears and longer, straighter tusks. More importantly for conservation, female forest elephants first give birth as late as 23 years, with longer birth intervals than their savanna cousins. Their

Can Ecuador do palm oil right? Jurisdictional RSPO commitment stirs hope "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ecuador is the sixth largest palm oil producing country in the world and the second largest in Latin America. While most of its oil palm plantations have been developed on degraded land, an estimated 6 percent of cultivated area has come at the expense of natural forest. Conservationists worry this will increase as the countrys palm oil sector continues to grow. In attempts to reign in harmful palm oil industry practices, Ecuadors Ministry of Agriculture reactivated its Jurisdictional RSPO Certification plan in March 2018. The RSPO stands for Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil and is the worlds leading palm oil certification body. Ecuadors jurisdictional plan aims to certify entire provinces rather than focus certification efforts on individual companies and plantations, which has tended to be the norm in other parts of the world. Jurisdictional RSPO is also seen as a way to help the countrys palm oil sector gain better access to world markets, which are increasingly requiring sustainability certification for their products. The plan has been lauded by organizations such as the United Nations REDD program. But some worry it may not be applicable in some parts of Ecuador, such as its Amazonian region, and that a large-scale jurisdictional approach may be vulnerable to political turnover. Ecuadors oil palm industry has taken another step forward in committing to a jurisdictional RSPO system, seeking to transform the entire sector by making it cleaner and more sustainable. But many wonder if a commitment to RSPO is enough, considering the industrys questionable

Suppression of ribosomal protein RPS6KB1 by Nexrutine increases sensitivity of prostate tumors to radiation. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Cancer Lett. 2018 Oct 1 ;433:232-241. Epub 2018 Jul 9. PMID: 30003927 Abstract Title:  Suppression of ribosomal protein RPS6KB1 by Nexrutine increases sensitivity of prostate tumors to radiation. Abstract:  Radiation therapy (XRT) is a standard treatment for prostate cancer (PCa). Although dose escalation increases local control, toxicity hampers further escalation. Broader improvement will be possible by the addition of adjuvant therapies, which can synergize with radiation and thus improve efficacy. We have identified a natural compound (Nexrutine, Nx) that inhibits the survival and growth of PCa cells in combination with radiation. Combination studies demonstrated strong interaction between Nx and radiation both in vitro in multiple PCa cell lines and in the Transgenic adenocarcinoma of mouse prostate (TRAMP) model. Nx potentiated growth inhibitory effects of IR by down regulating ribosomal protein S6K (RPS6KB1), CyclinD1, Chk1 and HIF-1 and prolonging G2/M checkpoint block. RPS6KB1 is upregulated in prostate cancers and its expression is correlated with tumor grade. Knockdown of RPS6KB1 in PCa cells increased their sensitivity toward radiation-induced survival inhibition. Overall, we provide scientific evidence (i) in support ofNx as an adjuvant in PCa patients receiving XRT (ii) suggesting that RPS6KB1 is an important player in Nx-mediated combinatorial benefits and emphasizes that RPS6KB1 is a novel target for PCa treatment. These data underscore the need to test the agent in additional preclinical models to validate these observations.

PMID:  Phytother Res. 2018 Jul 11. Epub 2018 Jul 11. PMID: 29993148 Abstract Title:  Standardized Morinda citrifolia L. and Morinda elliptica L. leaf extracts alleviated fatigue by improving glycogen storage and lipid/carbohydrate metabolism. Abstract:  The antifatigue properties of Morinda elliptica (ME) leaf were compared with Morinda citrifolia (MC) leaf extracts. Sixty Balb/C mice were administered (N = 10): control water, standardized green tea extract (positive control 200 mg/kg body weight [BW]), either 200 or 400 mg MC/kg BW, or either 200 or 400 mg ME/kg BW). The mice performances, biochemical, and mRNA expressions were evaluated. After 6 weeks, the weight-loaded swimming time to exhaustion in the mice consuming 400 mg MC/kg, were almost five times longer than the control mice. The gene expressions analysis suggested the extracts enhanced performance by improving lipid catabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, electron transport, antioxidant responses, energy production, and tissue glycogen stores. The MC and ME extracts enhanced stamina by reducing blood lactate and blood urea nitrogen levels, increasing liver and muscle glycogen reserve through augmenting the glucose metabolism (glucose transporter type 4 and pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase 4), lipid catabolism (acyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenases and fatty acid translocase), antioxidant (superoxide dismutase 2) defence responses, electron transport (COX4I2), and energy production (PGC1, NRF1, NRF2, cytochrome C electron transport, mitochondrial transcription factor A, UCP1, and UCP3) biomarkers. The MC (containing scopoletin and epicatechin) was better than ME (containing only scopoletin) or green tea (containing epicatechin and GT catechins) for alleviating fatigue.

Noni leaf extract protects against cerebral ischemia and osteoporosis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2018 ;2018:1039364. Epub 2018 Mar 25. PMID: 29765488 Abstract Title:  L. Leaf Extract Protects against Cerebral Ischemia and Osteoporosis in anExperimental Model of Menopause. Abstract:  We aimed to determine the protective effects against cerebral ischemia and osteoporosis ofextract in experimental menopause. The neuroprotective effect was assessed by givingleaf extract at doses of 2, 10, and 50mg/kg BW to the bilateral ovariectomized (OVX) rats for 7 days. Then, they were occluded in the right middle cerebral artery (MCAO) for 90 minutes. The neurological score, brain infarction volume, oxidative stress status, and ERK1/2 and eNOS activities were assessed 24 hours later.improved neurological score, brain infarction, and brain oxidative stress status in the cortex of OVX rats plus the MCAO. No changes in ERK 1/2 signal pathway and NOS expression were observed in this area. Our data suggested that the neuroprotective effect of the extract might occur partly via the improvement of oxidative stress status in the cortex. The antiosteoporotic effect in OVX rats was also assessed after an 84-day intervention of. The serum levels of calcium, osteocalcin, and alkaline phosphatase and osteoblast density in the tibia were increased, but the density of osteoclast was decreased in OVX rats which received the extract. Therefore, the current data suggested that the extract possessed antiosteoporotic effect by increasing bone formation but decreasing bone resorption.

Dr. Troubadour Accused of Running Fake News Boot Camp to Train Boys to Become Fake Newsmen "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Troubadour is accused of amassing a child armyTroubadour is accused of amassing a child army.

Dr. Angstrom H. Troubadour is being detained in a mobile diesel therapy unit en route to Cuthbert, Georgia in the Southeastern US, after documents tied him to a Lebal Drocer executive responsible for the stillborn deaths of hundreds of thousands of children in South Carolina, and who is sought in connection to an illegal Fake News Bootcamp where children are taught to write dangerous forms of Internet satire.

Georgia state authorities are seeking to question a prominent hate speech historian, Raleigh T. Sakers, who they suspect trained dozens of malnourished children to commit mass disinformation campaigns in their communities.

In addition to the defamed Lebal Drocer University professor Dr. Troubadour, recently released court documents accuse Sakers, the mysterious corporate executive behind the Lebal Drocer Uranium Waste Spill of 2011, of training children whose ages range from 16, all the way down to toddlers, to write lies, fabrications, and publish fake news under the guise of satire.

Noni fruit juice delays immunosenescence in the lymphocytes in lymph nodes of old F344 rats. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Integr Med. 2018 05 ;16(3):199-207. Epub 2018 Apr 12. PMID: 29691190 Abstract Title:  Noni (Morinda citrifolia L.) fruit juice delays immunosenescence in the lymphocytes in lymph nodes of old F344 rats. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Aging is associated with the development of diseases because of immunosuppression and altered functioning of the neuroendocrine system. The medicinal properties of Morinda citrifolia L. have been widely exploited for the treatment of age-associated diseases. This study aims to investigate the in vitro and in vivo effects of noni (M. citrifolia) fruit juice (NFJ) on neuro-immunomodulation in the lymph node lymphocytes of F344 rats.METHODS: Lymphocytes isolated from axillary and inguinal lymph nodes of young (3-4months) and old (18-21months) rats were treated in vitro with different concentrations (0.0001%, 0.01%, and 1%) of NFJ for a period of 24h. In the in vivo study, old (16-17months) male F344 rats were treated with 5mL/kg body weight of 5%, 10% and 20% of NFJ, twice a day, by oral gavage, and lymph node lymphocytes were isolated after 60d. Concanavalin A (Con A)-induced lymphocyte proliferation, interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interferon- (IFN-) production and expression of intracellular markers, such as phospho-extracellular signal-regulated kinase (p-ERK1/2), phospho-cAMP response element-binding protein, phospho-protein kinase B (p-Akt), phospho-tyrosine hydroxylase (p-TH), phospho-nuclear factor of light polypeptide gene enhancer in B-cells inhibitor- (p-IB-) and phospho-nuclear factor-B (p-NF-B p65 and p50) were examined in the lymphocytes of lymph nodes.RESULTS: NFJ increased Con A-induced lymphocyte proliferation, IL-2 and IFN- production, and p-ERK1/2 expression both in vitro and in vivo. In in vivo NFJ-treated old rats, lymph node lymphocytes showed increased expression of p-TH and Akt, nitric oxide production and decreased expression of p-NF-B p65 and p50.CONCLUSION: These results suggest that the immunostimulatory properties of NFJ are facilitated through intracellular signaling pathways involving ERK1/2, Akt and NF-B.

Guy Refused To Adopt Because He 'Wasn't A Cat Person' But Kitten Had Other Plans "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Larry Ritchie has never really considered himself a cat person. 

About a month ago, he and his girlfriend were walking through their local SPCA and she asked him multiple times if he would be willing to adopt a kitten. Every time he said no but one of the kittens at the shelter that day had other plans

Nirvana had been abandoned in a box outside the shelter with her siblings when she was just a few months old. As the staffers at the shelter got to know her, they found that she wasnt a huge fan of being held and was a little nervous around new people, but all of that changed as soon as she met Ritchie and his girlfriend. 

Credit: Larry Ritchie

She was hesitant at first because we were told she didnt like to be picked up, Ritchie told The Dodo. She let us pick her up and they said that it was unusual. 

As soon as Nirvana met the couple, she warmed up to them immediately, and everyone who had worked with the kitten and knew her personality was shocked. 

She sat and purred in my lap as the lady said, How? She wont let anyone hold her! I knew I wanted her then, Ritchie said. 

Credit: Larry Ritchie

Even though Nirvana made a strong case trying to change Ritchies mind about cats, he and his girlfriend left the shelter without her but Ritchie soon realized that hed made a mistake, and that she was meant to be their kitten. 

Initially I felt as if there was a lot more to handle at home and wasnt sure if the responsibility would be more than we could keep up with, Ritchie said. But driving home from the shelter I changed my mind.

Chemical constituents and antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor activities of Melilotus officinalis. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Molecules. 2018 Jan 29 ;23(2). Epub 2018 Jan 29. PMID: 29382154 Abstract Title:  Chemical Constituents and Antioxidant, Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Tumor Activities of Melilotus officinalis (Linn.) Pall. Abstract:  Two new p-hydroxybenzoic acid glycosides, namely p-hydroxybenzoic acid-4---d-manopyranosyl-(1 3)--l-rhamnopyranoside (compound) and 4---l-rhamnopyran-osyl-(1 6)--d-manopyranosyl-(1 3)--l-rhamnopyranoside (compound), and seven known compounds, compound,,(acid components), compound,(flavonoids), compound(a coumarin) and compound(an alkaloid), were isolated from the 70% ethanol aqueous extract of the aerial parts of(Linn.) Pall. The structures of all compounds were elucidated by use of extensive spectroscopic methods Infrared Spectroscopy (IR), High resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HR-ESI-MS), andH andC-NMR). Sugar residues obtained after acid hydrolysis were identified by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The antioxidant activity of all the compounds was evaluated by 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH). The anti-inflammatory effects of the compounds were also evaluated in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages. All compounds were shown to inhibit LPS-induced nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandin E 2 (PGE 2) production by suppressing the expression of inducible NO synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), respectively, in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 cells. The inhibitory effect of all the compounds on MCF-7 cells was determined by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) method. The results showed that compounds,,,,exhibited better antioxidant activity compared to the other compounds. compounds-had different inhibitory effects on the release of NO, TNF- and IL-6 in LPS-stimulated RAW264.7 cells by LPS, of which compoundwas the most effective against inflammatory factors. compoundsandhave better antitumor activity compared to other compounds. Further research to elucidate the chemical composition and pharmacological effects of(Linn.) Pall is of major importance towards the development and foundation of clinical application of the species.

Bear Grylls' New 'Adventure Park' Will Let People Swim With Captive Sharks "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Swimming with aquarium sharks.

Its an experience most would call exhilarating but is it bad for the sharks?

In the case of Bear Grylls Adventure Park, a new tourist attraction thats allowing guests to dive in tanks full of live sharks, the short answer is a very likely "yes."

Set to open in Birmingham, England, this fall, the park is backed by celebrity survivalist Bear Grylls. The attraction promises to take guests on some of the world's most incredible mental and physical challenges inspired by Bears love of adventure.

The ocean survivalist section will have a tank filled with live blacktip reef sharks, and offer regular diving excursions inside the tank. Animal advocates and conservationists say that the stress it will put on the animals could be dangerous.

If you put sharks into a combined space with humans, its inevitable that there will be stress, DJ Schubert, a wildlife biologist with the Animal Welfare Institute, told The Dodo. Tanks simply cant meet the physical and psychological needs of the sharks, which makes for an unhealthy animal.

Even though blacktip reef sharks are a timid shark species typically used in aquariums, they are known to bite swimmers legs or ankles in the wild because they sometimes mistake humans for prey. Putting the sharks in closer proximity with people, with little room to avoid them, may further increase the chances of guests being bitten, Schubert explained.

The same [biting] behavior, if not worse behavior, can be observed in captive sharks because they dont have the ability to escape from people within their tank, Schubert said. I would be concerned about the potential of adverse interactions with the customers.

Dog Left Behind In Apartment Was So Matted He Could Barely Move "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Day after day, Sunny the poodle simply waited.

It had been weeks, but his family still hadnt come home.

All of their furniture was gone even his food bowls. He drank from the open toilet because he was so thirsty, and he was getting skinnier by the day. His hair was so matted and dirty that it hurt to move. He yearned for relief.

Finally, after waiting for so long, someone found Sunny.

He was brought to us by an apartment complex manager who had done a final walkthrough and found that Sunny had been left in the apartment, Cassie Lackey, community relations manager with Humane Society of North Texas, told The Dodo. He was just locked inside the apartment and left to roam around.

Sunnys family had apparently moved out of the apartment and left the 2-year old dog behind. While his abandonment was shocking enough, his condition showed the neglect had gone on for quite some time, likely before theyd even left. His fur was filthy, matted and infested with bugs. The hair around his legs was so knotted and painful that he could barely move.

Credit: Humane Society of North Texas

When you lifted the fur away from his eyes, he just winced, Lackey said. He was like a statue. His eyes would move, but his body stayed still.

A groomer from a local PetSmart store offered to take on the delicate job of freeing Sunny from the painful mats. He required a light sedative to stay relaxed throughout the process, while the groomer cut his hair in sections.

Lotus seed epicarp could be exploited as a potential source of natural antioxidants and -amylase inhibitors. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Appl Biochem Biotechnol. 2018 Jul 24. Epub 2018 Jul 24. PMID: 30039473 Abstract Title:  Identification of Antioxidant and Anti--amylase Components in Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera, Gaertn.) Seed Epicarp. Abstract:  Lotus seed epicarp, a byproduct of lotus seed production process, is usually discarded as a waste. In this study, antioxidant and anti--amylase activities of freeze-dried water and various methanol extracts of lotus seed epicarp were evaluated. The extract obtained by 80% methanol exhibited the strongest DPPH and ABTS radical scavenging activity and ferric reducing power, as well as the greatest inhibitory potential on -amylase. The excellent antioxidant and -amylase inhibitory activities of 80% methanol extract might be attributed to its highest concentrations of total phenolics, flavonoids, and condensed tannins. The inhibition kinetic analysis revealed that the 80% methanol extract was a reversible and uncompetitive-type inhibitor of -amylase. Furthermore, based on MALDI-TOF-MS and thiolysis-HPLC-ESI-MS, the main active components present in 80% methanol extract were identified to be B-type heteropolymeric condensed tannins built up of mixtures of propelargonidins, procyanidins, and prodelphinidins, with thepredominance of procyanidins and epicatechin as the main constitutive units. The results obtained suggested that lotus seed epicarp could be exploited as a potential source of natural antioxidants and -amylase inhibitors.

Dog Does The Sweetest Thing To Welcome Her New Sick Little Brother To Family "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Timmy was found on the streets of Argentina in 2016, cowering in a corner all alone. He was emaciated, mange-ridden and scared of everyone around him, and he could barely stand, let alone walk, because he was so weak. A kind woman who often rescues strays off the streets took him in and posted about him on Facebook, hoping to find someone willing to take a chance on him. 

Thats how Jessica Rojo Savard, Timmys new mom, found him. 

Credit: Jessica Rojo Savard

Savard already had a cat and a dog of her own at home, both with their own rescue stories, and she had decided a while back that her adoption quota had been filled. When she saw the post about Timmy, though, all of that changed. There was something about his face that told her he was meant to be hers. 

I cried while I read the post and immediately after contacted [his rescuer] to adopt him, even if in the picture I couldn't tell if he was a puppy or a senior, had short hair or long hair it did not matter, Savard told The Dodo. I knew that in his state, adoption would be hard.

Savard waited a few weeks until Timmys mange was no longer contagious, then went to pick him up and brought him straight to the vet. Aside from the issues Savard already knew about, Timmy was doing OK, and had even started to gain some weight since he was first rescued. Everyone who encountered Timmy would gasp when they saw him, though, because he was still so skinny and sickly looking. He barely looked like a dog at all. The secretary at the vets office commented that he looked more like a meerkat than a dog, and thats where his proper name, Timon the name of the meerkat in The Lion King came from.

Withania somnifera modulates cancer cachexia associated inflammatory cytokines and cell death in leukaemic THP-1 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  BMC Complement Altern Med. 2018 Apr 10 ;18(1):126. Epub 2018 Apr 10. PMID: 29631586 Abstract Title:  Withania somnifera modulates cancer cachexia associated inflammatory cytokines and cell death in leukaemic THP-1 cells and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC's). Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Cancer and inflammation are associated with cachexia. Withania somnifera (W. somnifera) possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory potential. We investigated the potential of an aqueous extract of the root of W. somnifera (W) to modulate cytokines, antioxidants and apoptosis in leukaemic THP-1 cells and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC's).METHODS: Cytotoxcity of Wwas determined at 24 and 72 h (h). Oxidant scavenging activity of Wwas evaluated (2, 2-diphenyl-1 picrylhydrazyl assay). Glutathione (GSH) levels, caspase (-8, -9, -3/7) activities and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels (Luminometry) were thereafter assayed. Tumour necrosis factor- (TNF-), interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1 and IL-10 levels were also assessed using enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay.RESULTS: At 24 h, W(0.2-0.4 mg/ml) decreased PBMC viability between 20 and 25%, whereas it increased THP-1 viability between 15 and 23% (p

Viral Video Of Calf Wearing Nose Ring Has The Saddest Backstory "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

No matter how hard he tries, this baby cow cant nurse from his mom.

With a large plastic ring around his nose, he tries time and time again to drink some milk, but the device keeps covering his little suckling mouth.

He has no idea why.

This was the sad scene captured on video at what appears to be a dairy or beef farm and its since gone viral with over 4 million views online. The calf is clearly frustrated that hes being forced away from nursing, and Susie Coston, national shelter director for Farm Sanctuary, says theres a heartbreaking reason why.

The main purpose is to prevent the calves from nursing, but the reasons why depend on the type of farm and why theyre trying to wean them, Coston told The Dodo. Some force weaning because nursing mothers need more food, and that costs money. The other reason is that nursing keeps the mothers too thin for re-impregnation, so they want to increase the mothers weight for the next pregnancy They have an interest in breaking the bond between the mother and her baby because that is what is ultimately most profitable.

Credit: Carolyn Hamilton/Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary

According to the USDA, more than 65 percent of calves born on dairy farms are separated from their mothers immediately after birth. The Humane Society of the United States notes that this abrupt separation can distress the calves, and they may cry so much that their throats become irritated and inflamed. This stress can take a toll on the calfs immune system for several weeks, researchers found.

In the case of the beef industry, calves such as the one in the video are forcibly weaned from their mothers, sometimes using a nose plate, in order to be sent to a feedlot where they will be confined and fed a diet of grain to make them gain weight for slaughter.

The mother cows remain on the farm to continue having calf after calf in order to produce milk. When shes too old to have babies, she will likely have the same fate as her sons....

Lonely Zoo Elephant Hasn't Had A Friend In 11 Years "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For Lucy the Asian elephant, life at the Edmonton Valley Zoo in Alberta, Canada, is as lonely as it gets.

Every day for Lucy is mostly the same. She stands in her barren concrete enclosure, behind a glass wall, as visitors watch her slowly pace around.

She has a tire hanging from the ceiling as a toy and no pool or mud bath to play in outside. And its been over a decade since Lucy last saw another elephant.

Credit: LEAP

She spends her days alone in a glass cage where the walls are painted with artificial trees, Mary-Ann Holm, cofounder of Lucys Edmonton Advocates Project (LEAP), told The Dodo. The only trees she has access to are behind electric fencing, just out of reach.

Lucy is 43 years old, and has been at the zoo since she was taken from the wild in 1977 as a calf. She was alone for many years, until the zoo brought in a young African elephant named Samantha for Lucy to mother in 1989.

Lucy and Samantha shared the same enclosure for 18 years. It was likely just as barren then but they had each other. In 2007, the zoo sent Lucys only friend away to North Carolina on a breeding loan. Samantha was never brought back.

Credit: LEAP

It was quite devastating for her to go from having a companion, to suddenly being all alone again, Holm said. There are many photos of the two standing right next to each other, and holding trunks together. But the zoo claimed that Lucy didnt like her, and that she [Lucy] is actually an antisocial elephant who prefers humans.

Elephants are a social species through and through, and develop complex relationships with family and friends in the company of other elephants. Studies show how abnormal solitary life is for elephants yet many zoos across the world force them to live like this....

Police Pull Over Couple And Get Handed A Puppy Couple 'Doesn't Want' Anymore "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When some police officers performed a random traffic stop on a car in Windsor, England, they didnt really expect to find anything too out of the ordinary. When they looked into the car, they found a couple sitting in the front, holding a tiny puppy. After a few minutes, the couple told the police they didnt want the puppy anymore and passed him through the window to the officers, just like that.

The couple had only just gotten the puppy that day, and he was clearly too young to be away from his mother. Its incredibly lucky that the officers pulled the couple over when they did, as otherwise the puppys future would have been very uncertain. The officers immediately agreed to take the puppy in, and after a few hours he was transferred into the care of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

Credit: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

Staffers at the shelter decided to name the puppy Buddy. The tiny dog was only 6 weeks old at the time, and despite his shaky start to life, he was completely healthy. Everyone quickly fell in love with Buddy, and cuddled him and kept him safe before he was old enough to go off and find his forever family. 

Buddy is a really bright puppy who loves attention from people and his confidence around other dogs is growing everyday, Sarah Copleston, communications officer for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, told The Dodo. Buddy loves nothing more than being made a fuss of and chasing a tennis ball. With all of the excitement of being a puppy, he is fast asleep by 9 p.m. each evening.
