  1. People who become wealthy in the United States may tend to boast of their humble beginnings, but new research finds that they may, in fact, be less sympathetic to the difficulties of being poor than those who were born rich.

  2. The UK has reached a “landmark” agreement to modernise the terms of the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) which is expected to “limit costly legal challenges” from fossil fuel investors in the country.

  3. Fossil fuel firms are misleading the public about their moves to cut greenhouse gases and curb climate change — and social media are hosting ads that perpetuate this “greenwashing”, researchers say.

  4. Background:Dysbiosis of gut microbiota has been reported to be enrolled in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, there is a lack of relevant studies on this topic in Egyptian patients with AD. Objective:To investigate different species of gut microbiota in Egyptian patients with AD and correlate microbiota bacterial abundance with clinical data. Methods:The study included 25 patients with AD and 25 healthy volunteers as age and sex-matched controls. Clinical data was taken for each patient, including medical history and examination; Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) were assessed for each participant. Bacterial DNA was extracted from stool, and abundance quantified via qPCR using 16S rRNA group-specific primers. Results:Akkermansia, Enterobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Bacillus cereus, Prevotella, and Clostridium cluster IV were more abundant in the AD group than in the control group, although there was significantly less abundance of Bifidobacterium spp., Firmicutes, and Actinobacteria in patients with AD than in controls, whereas no such significance was found for lactic acid bacteria between both groups. Lactic acid bacteria and Prevotella abundance was negatively correlated with cognitive impairment (p = 0.03 with MMSE, and p = 0.03 with MoCA). Prevotella abundance was positively correlated with age of onset and duration of illness and negatively correlated with smoking and coronary heart disease (p = 0.007, p = 0.03, p = 0.035, and p = 0.047, respectively). Conclusion:The current work highlighted a significant relationship between AD and gut microbiota dysbiosis. A higher abundance of Prevotella species and lactic acid bacteria was correlated with cognition.

  9. Summer heat has already spiked demand for power across the country. Regulators are warning massive heat waves could overwhelm the grid and force utilities in several states to issue rolling blackouts.

  10. In a recent study published in the JAMA Network Open, researchers analyzed the correlations between handgrip strength (HGS), dementia, and neurocognitive outcomes among males and females from the United Kingdom (UK).

  11. Does any one have a link to the study? With the numbers they give in the article, since they are based on 1million, we are talking about small fraction of a difference. As for the 70k more death here, well thank god our fat people epidemic isn't as bad as in the usa and that we haven't done stuff like New York:

  15. Human populations have waxed and waned over the millennia, with some cultures exploding and migrating to new areas or new continents, others dropping to such low numbers that their genetic diversity plummeted. In some small populations, inbreeding causes once rare genetic diseases to become common, despite their deleterious effects.
