Штурм им. MandyFowell / "What's happened to [Hawking] is just astounding

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking turns 76 today — an age well beyond what he was expected to reach when he was diagnosed with the incurable neurological disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) more than 50 years ago.

Hawking was 21 years old when he was diagnosed with ALS in 1963, and he was given just two years to live. The disease causes the progressive degeneration and death of the nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movements, such as chewing, walking, talking and breathing, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).

But how has Hawking lived so long with a disease that is typically fatal after just a few years?

In fact, no one knows for certain why Hawking has survived so long with ALS, which is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. But researchers do know that the progression of the disease varies depending on the person. Although the average life expectancy after a diagnosis of ALS is about three years, about 20 percent of people live five years after their diagnosis, 10 percent live 10 years after their diagnosis and 5 percent live 20 years or more, according to The ALS Association. [The 7 Biggest Mysteries of the Human Body]

One factor that likely plays a role in patients' survival time is genetics; scientists have identified over 20 different genes involved in ALS, said Dr. Anthony Geraci, director of the Neuromuscular Center at Northwell Health's Neuroscience Institute in Manhasset, New York, who is not involved in Hawking's care. «ALS is probably 20 or more different diseases when one considers the genetic underpinnings,» Geraci said. Some of these genetic differences appear to affect various aspects of the disease, including survival.

For instance, a gene called SOD1, which is linked with a type of ALS that runs in families, is associated with a more rapid course of the disease, Geraci told Live Science.

Studies have also found that being diagnosed with ALS at a younger age is linked with a longer survival time. (Hawking was relatively young when he was diagnosed with ALS; the disease is most commonly diagnosed in people ages 55 to 75, according to the NINDS.)

The Food and Drug Administration has approved two drugs to treat ALS, called riluzole (Rilutek) and edaravone (Radicava). Each of these drugs can prolog survival by about six months, but the drugs likely don't account for an exceptional survival time like the one Hawking has experienced, Geraci said.

Early symptoms of ALS can include muscle weakness or slurred speech, and eventually, the disease can cause people to lose the ability to move, speak, eat or breathe on their own, according to the Mayo Clinic.

People with ALS typically die from respiratory failure, which occurs when the nerve cells controlling the breathing muscles stop working, or from malnutrition and dehydration, which can occur when the muscles that control swallowing deteriorate, Dr. Leo McCluskey, an associate professor 용인출장마사지 of neurology and medical director of the ALS Center at the University of Pennsylvania, told Scientific American in 2012.

«If you don't have these two things, you could potentially live for a long time — even though you're getting worse,» McCluskey said. «What's happened to [Hawking] is just astounding. He's certainly an outlier.»

The world hit another carbon dioxide emissions milestone in 2018, with an estimated 2.7 percent increase in emissions since last year, according to a report published Wednesday in Environmental Research Letters, a scientific journal. This follows an increase of 1.6 percent in 2017 from 2016.

The Global Carbon Project, an organization that produced the report, estimates that global CO2 emissions from fossil fuel sources will hit a record high of more than 37 billion tons this year.

Just two years ago, there was cause for cautious optimism. From 2014 to 2016, world emissions seemed to be stabilizing.

More in Climate Change

«We thought, perhaps hoped, emissions had peaked a few years ago,» Rob Jackson, 안산출장안마 a professor at Stanford's School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences and leader of the Global Carbon Project, said in a news release. «After two years of renewed growth, that was wishful thinking.»

The Global Carbon Project report estimates that CO2 emissions in the U.S. alone ticked up 2.5 percent since last year partly due to extreme heat, as well as cold and the use of oil associated with it. U.S. emissions make up 15 percent of the global output.

The U.S., however, is not the biggest emitter. With a population four times greater than the U.S., that distinction goes to China, producing 27 percent of global emissions. Their contribution also grew 4.5 percent in 2018 compared to last year due to continued construction and economic growth.

The published findings come on the heels of a U.N. Emissions Gap Report released last week. The «emissions gap» is the difference between fossil fuel emissions reduction pledges made by the nearly 200 countries that signed the 2015 Paris Agreement and where the actual emissions trajectory stands today. Emissions act as a heat-trapping greenhouse gas blanket, warming the globe.

The U.N. report illustrates a widening chasm between reality and the international community's stated goal of limiting global warming to «well below the 2 degrees Celsius,» or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. That temperature increase is measured from 1850.

The U.N. report highlights the disconnect between need and action, concluding that nations must triple their efforts to stay below 2 degrees Celsius. To stay below a more ambitious goal of less than 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming, we'd need five times as much effort.

According to NASA, atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide are the highest they've been in 2 to 3 million years. For the past 800,000 years, CO2 levels have stayed near or below 280 parts per million. Just in the last 150 years, levels have jumped 45 percent due mainly to the burning of fossil fuels.

Meanwhile, Earth continues to shatter warming records. A few days ago, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), an intergovernmental organization, put out a statement saying the 20 warmest years on record have all been in the past 22 years, with the top four in the past four years.

Since the 1800s, the world has warmed close to 2 degrees Fahrenheit. Climate scientists conclude that nearly 100 percent of the warming is due to humans.

«It is worth repeating once again that we are the first generation to fully understand climate change and the last generation to be able to do something about it,» said World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.

In the last decade, from 2007 to 2017, there has been some reason for optimism in the U.S., as emissions decreased by 13.5 percent over that period, according to Jackson, the Stanford professor. The decrease was due to progress in energy efficiency and gains in sustainable energy. The U.S. also has the greatest potential to reduce energy consumption with efficiency, since the U.S. has the highest rate of energy use per person — two times that of Europe.

But at a time when the world's scientists are shouting desperate warnings, Americans' habits still seem to be going in the opposite direction.

«We're driving more miles in bigger cars, changes that are outpacing improvements in vehicle fuel efficiency,» Jackson said. «Overall, U.S. oil use is on track to rise by more than 1 percent this year compared to 2017.»

John Furlow, deputy director at the International Research Institute of Climate and Society at Columbia University, is frustrated by the U.S. abandonment of the Paris Agreement and lack of U.S. leadership on climate. Still, he holds out hope that the U.S. will be able to meet some its Paris commitments through mobilization of state, local and private action. He worries «it will not have the same impact as a concerted, coordinated national effort from a superpower.»

With a global population expected to spike to over 11 billion in 2100, stopping the emissions bulldozer is a Herculean task. A business-as-usual approach to climate change concerns Arturo Garcia-Costas, Environment Program Officer at New York Community Trust. He urges game-changing action.

«The time for minor tweaks to our civilization has passed,» he said. «We need to take bold steps and deploy new technologies that will transform the systems we depend upon to move, feed and protect our families from a changing world.»

That's what the world is working on right now at COP24 in Katowice, Poland — an annual U.N. climate meeting with delegates from nearly all nations. Famous nature documentarian Sir David Attenborough opened the conference with a dire warning.

«Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale, our greatest threat in thousands of years,» he said. «If we don't take action, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.»

Штурм им. NorineLucket / President Obama returned Friday from a trip to Europe that was dominated by consultations with U.S

President Obama returned Friday from a trip to Europe that was dominated by consultations with U.S. allies about the fighting in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine. But for all the headline-grabbing chaos in those countries, some real points of concern have emerged or festered elsewhere, promising no shortage of crises for the administration to address.

Between Islamist militants in Somalia and Libya, new al Qaeda initiatives in the Indian subcontinent, and continued tensions in East Asia driven by China's rise, the U.S. won't have the luxury of picking and choosing its battles as the year grinds on.

Here's a look at four flash points that have continued occupying the attention of policymakers even as more immediate problems have come to the fore.

The al Shabaab movement in East Africa, which was responsible for the deadly attack on a shopping mall in Kenya last September, was dealt a heavy blow this week when the U.S. launched a strike this week that killed Ahmed Godane, the group's leader.

That attack, CBS News Senior National Security Analyst Juan Zarate said, 청주출장마사지 demonstrates that al Shabaab «hasn't gone away. It's not dead.»

Since the attack on the shopping mall, U.S. officials have been «very worried that this is a group that continues to aspire to attack beyond the borders of Somalia,» Zarate said. «So what you've seen has been some movement of the African Union forces and the other forces on the ground — the Somali government there — against al Shabaab, and then you've got American strikes.»

«It's clear that the US has its eye on this group still,» Zarate added. «It's been diminished in terms of its control of territory but it continues to plot, continues to train, and has control of some parts of Somalia. So this is an attempt to constrain their reach, and to go after their senior leadership.»

U.S. attention to the continued turmoil in Libya following the ouster of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi peaked shortly after the attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi in September 2012 that killed four Americans, but the unrest there has continued to smolder. Most recently, it resulted in the seizure of a former U.S. diplomatic compound this week by Islamist militants.

«You've got Libya becoming Somalia on the Mediterranean in many ways,» Zarate warned, «and what you have is a lot of the Islamic militants who are now vying for power, along with other tribal groups and other factions in Libya, taking control of more parts of the country, to include the airport and now this diplomatic facility that was basically a residence for US. diplomats and personnel.»

The jihadis apparently had a «pool party» at the facility, Zarate added, noting a video of the revelry that was posted online showing militants jumping from balconies and generally trashing the place.

The seizure of the compound, Zarate said, reflects the sad reality that Libya's «governance is not working,» and that extremists continue to hold sway over broad swaths of the country.

«I think it's a major concern for counterterrosim officials in the west, and you've always had the problem of extremists, especially in the east, in places like Benghazi that have been tied to al Qaeda,» Zarate explained. «So we've got to keep our eye on Libya for precisely for those reasons.»

Despite the dysfunction, though, the country has maintained stability in several crucial areas.

«Their investment authority is still operating fairly well. They're suing banks in the west and still running their investments,» Zarate said. «And the oil is now flowing, and the trade is flowing. So, though you've got this massive problem of these Libyan extremists fighting for control, you do have parts of Libya that are working.»

With all the focus on the militants with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a group that has openly split with al Qaeda leadership, it's likely that the former tip of the global jihadi spear is feeling a bit left behind.

But that could be changing. The leader of al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahiri, resurfaced in video posted this week announcing the formation of a new terrorist affiliate in the Indian Subcontinent.

«Zawahiri has reappeared,» Zarate said. «He's in a video, I think prompted by all of the attention on [ISIS]...but he's also trying to rebrand and reassert his role as the leader of the broader global jihadi movement.»

Zawahiri's aim is to «inspire an al Qaeda movement that coalesces in the subcontinent and South Asia,» Zarate said.

The U.S. has its eye on Pakistani groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Indian Mujahedeen, groups that have flirted with al Qaeda in the past. But «there hasn't been an organizing principle around some of these groups,» Zarate said. «Al Qaeda is trying to lead that, and they're trying to do that in a period where they've begun to lose the battle in the media over who actually controls the jihadi movement.»

China's rise has strained relationships with neighboring countries in East Asia, several of which have balked at Chinese territorial claims in the South China Sea. But it's not just China's neighbors that are feeling the heat.

Last month, for example, the Chinese air force buzzed an American surveillance plane in a high-stakes aerial encounter that yielded heated denunciations from U.S. officials.

The incident generated «diplomatic tension,» Zarate said, but «clearly the Chinese are trying to send messages not just to their neighbors but to the United States that they're flexing their muscles.»

Zarate also flagged a budding controversy in Hong Kong over the electoral process there and how much control Beijing has over the governance of the former British territory.

At the end of August, China's legislature denied a request for open nominations in the election of Hong Kong's leader, warning such a move would create a «chaotic society.» It was the most vivid demonstration since Great Britain turned the territory over to Chinese control in 1997 that Beijing ultimately holds the reins of power, despite any promises of autonomy.

«This runs directly against the democratic principles of Hong Kong, the agreements that were made when the British handed over Hong Kong,» Zarate said, «and it's created tumult within Hong Kong between those that are more tightly aligned with Beijing and those that want a more independent, special status for Hong Kong.»

Thanks John. I feel youre undoubtedly right that there are connections out there connected to pH changes in the gut. The complete technique is truly really delicate and established up to function beneath optimal situations so slight adjustments can really throw things out of stability. The problem is there are so a lot of variables feeding into it (genetics, dietary intake, intestine microbiome and possibly heaps of other environmental variables as properly) that its going to take a whilst to unravel.Even if you are cautious about the salt you consume, you may possibly be stunned that some of the food you try to eat consists of hidden salt that youre not even aware of. Understand how to reduce down on salt...So is that the end? Are blood kind and diet plan definitively not connected? Effectively in the sense that you must follow a particular diet based on your blood kind, indeed. In that respect, the blood sort diet program has been debunked.

The benefits of getting rid of excess weight on a liquid diet program may be sudden, even so it is not very likely to very last lengthy as your metabolic rate slows down in purchase to help save energy from the lack of calorie consumption.

Штурм им. SamRawson02 / Women in Africa are 175 times as likely to die from complications of pregnancy or childbirth as those in industrialized countries, the report said

The world body's Population Fund said there has been significant but uneven progress in the past decade on those issues, which it sees as central to tackling poverty and keeping population growth in check.

The gaps between rich and poor nations remain vast, the U.N. population agency said in a halfway point report on the 20-year goals set at a landmark 1994 U.N. population and poverty conference in Cairo, Egypt.

The meeting set the target of ensuring all people have access to reproductive health care by 2015, a goal only reachable with a huge new infusion of cash, the U.N. Population Fund said.

Having children remains enormously risky for women in impoverished nations, it reported. Women in Africa are 175 times as likely to die from complications of pregnancy or childbirth as those in industrialized countries, the report said.

One woman dies every minute from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. There are about 529,000 deaths per year from those causes, and the vast majority are in poor countries, the report said. The number has not changed significantly since 1994, but most of those deaths could be prevented if all mothers-to-be had access to decent health care, the report said.

The agency said the idea that the intertwined problems of population growth and poverty are best dealt with by improving women's rights, including their access to health care and education, had gained worldwide acceptance in the decade since it was put forth by the 1994 conference.

«The dialogue about population has changed from population control — numbers of people — to the human rights of people, women in particular,» said U.N. Population Fund director Thoraya Obaid. «It's focused on the well-being of people, rather than on the number of people.»

Nearly all the 151 poor countries surveyed by the agency now have laws or policies in place to protect the rights of women and girls, although laws on violence against women are often not enforced, the agency said.

It said 131 of the survey countries had changed national policies, laws or institutions to recognize reproductive rights.

Sixty-one percent of couples worldwide now use modern forms of contraception, up from 55 percent in 1994, the report said. But 200 million women in poor countries who don't want another child within two years are not using birth control, it found.

The agency said wealthy countries that in 1994 pledged an annual $6.1 billion toward reaching the Cairo goals on women's rights and health care are giving only half that amount.

President Bush has blocked $34 million in congressionally approved annual assistance to the agency, alleging it helped China manage programs that involved forced abortions, 영월출장안마 a charge it calls baseless.

Obaid said countries in Europe and elsewhere had more than made up that money, with the Netherlands, Japan, Norway and Denmark at the top of the donors' list, but overall funding was still «woefully inadequate.»

If reproductive health issues are not addressed, Obaid said at a news conference, «that means increased poverty, more death.»

«This year's report is, above all, a call to mobilize the political will and resources needed to make the Cairo vision a reality,» she said.

The U.N. Population Fund estimates world population at 6.4 billion people and predicts it will increase to 8.9 billion by 2050, with almost all the growth in poor countries. The 50 poorest nations are expected to triple in population to 1.7 billion people.

Obaid said sexual health is now more widely discussed in many nations, an awareness she predicted would lead to concrete progress.

«It's not a taboo anymore; it's more of an open discussion,» she said. «I think this has come as a result of Cairo.»

The report said many countries had begun to integrate sexual health care into primary health care facilities, a move the U.N. agency backs.

But donor countries' support for condoms and other forms of contraception has decreased over the past decade, while demand is expected to increase by 40 percent by 2015.

If more money isn't found, the number of people without access to birth control, prenatal health care and HIV/AIDS prevention is expected to grow, the report said. Currently in sub-Saharan Africa, an area devastated by AIDS, the average number of condoms per man is three a year, it said.

The report said fewer than 20 percent of those at high risk of contracting the AIDS virus have access to prevention, even though 75 percent of countries surveyed said they had a national AIDS strategy.
