Humanity Will Continue to Live an Inferior Life Than What is Possible Until the Two Halves, Women and Men, with All Individuals in Them, are Absolutely, Fundamentally and Jubilantly Equal at Liberty. Humanity, Therefore, Is Not and Can Not Be Free Until All Humans are Equals for Only by the Yardstick of This Equality Their State of Being Free Can Be Measured. In Other Words, There Can Not Exist Liberty Unless There Exists Equality Between and Among All Humans and This State of Equality Can Not Come to Exist So Long There Remain Two Groups of Humans: The Powerful and The Powerless: Whereby the Former Controls the Later and Creates, Maintains and Carries Forward the Perpetual State of Inequality: Economically, Politically, Judicially, Constitutionally, Socially, Culturally and Spiritually. To Reach the State of Equality and Liberty, the Task Before Humanity is, Therefore, to Change This State by Taking Away Ownership and Money and, with Them, the Power They Generate and Confer, That Lets One Small Group of Humans, The Powerfuls, Subjugating the Vast Multitude of Humans, The Powerless, Under Their Dictatorship. For Only by Taking Away 'the Gun' of the Power of the Powerfuls, Humanity Can Bring About the State of Liberty, as Well as, Equality at Once: Equality and Liberty Can Not and Do Not Exist Separately But Together and Simultaneously. Equality and Liberty Exist as The Promethumean Fire: In Which There is the Light and There is the Heat in One Flame: The Humanion Stands Here on the Path of Humanics: A State of Liberty for All Humanity at Equality. The Promethumean: Where Prometheus is Not Seen as a Man But a Human

Music A Music-Soul: A Soul-Music: Kaija Saariaho Honoured with the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in Contemporary Music

|| February 23: 2018 || ά. The BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in the Contemporary Music category goes, in this tenth edition, to Finnish composer Ms Kaija Saariaho on the basis of 'a contribution to contemporary music, that is extraordinary in its individuality, breadth and scope'. From her earliest works, the jury continues, Ms Saariaho has exhibited 'a seamless interweaving of the worlds of acoustic music and technology', a quality, which the new laureate remarked, after hearing of the award, had come to her quite naturally. When she started studying music at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, she was frustrated at the acoustics of the venues she would attend to hear live performances.

Wondering, if, it was possible to alter characteristics like the volume of the instruments, she began recording them and processing the sound for subsequent playback. In 1982, she moved to Paris to continue her training at the Institut de Recherche et Co-ordination Acoustique:Musique:IRCAM, where she came into contact with the leading exponents of spectralism. The spectralist technique of decomposing sound left a recognisable imprint on Ms Saariaho’s writing in the form of electronic arrangements and computer-generated sounds. The combination of synthetic sounds, classical instrumentation and elements of nature shines through in early works like Lichtbogen, 1986, inspired by the Northern lights. “Coming from Finland, of course, has made me more sensitive to nature.” she explains.

Political Economics Why Medicine Needs a Learning Economics: Harvard Medical School Opens the Doors for This Learning Economics Where Advancements in Sciences and Technologies are Brought to Bear Fruits in Real Convergence Into Becoming Real Medicines and Therapeutics: Functional Genomics and Drug Discovery: Strategic Approaches for Decision Making: New Programme for Leaders in Pharma and Biotech: June 04-05

|| February 23: 2018 || ά. Harvard Medical School introduces a new programme in functional genomics and drug discovery for leaders in pharmaceuticals and bio-technologies at a very opportune time for the days of working alone and in isolation is over and it is time these agencies learn to do business in a better way, where the currency is no longer 'money' but knowledge and know-how as the advancements in research and learning are taking place across the globe and so many potential drugs and therapeutics, as well as, bio-medical-engineering advancements are being made, almost, everyday, many of which get lost in finding their way into becoming real. These agencies must learn to connect with these on-going advances and bring them into realities. And, this is why, Harvard's new initiative not only should be congratulated and supported but, also, should be replicated by other major learning bodies across the globe. For our needs are so desperate and so vast, that can only be imagined as few drops of water flowing towards an infinity of dry desert sand of all our needs.

We can not make progress fast enough in such a vast diversity of disciplines from which must come all our hopes and these hopes reside in these thousands of untapped new discoveries and advancements, that our pharmaceuticals, bio-pharmaceuticals and bio-medical-technological companies must learn to channel to and bring them to reality. They used to 'head hunt' for people; it is time they learn how to 'knowledge hunt' and bring that knowledge into tangible realities so that they can be seen by results in real drugs and therapeutics. The past two decades have brought unprecedented advances in the field of genetics, but translating these promising discoveries into new therapies has been somewhat challenging. To help catalyse the development of meaningful therapies, Harvard Medical School is launching a new programme aimed at educating pharma and biotech leaders on the latest advances in genetics and how to optimise them for drug discovery and other therapeutic innovations. Slated to make its debut on June 04, the two-day programme, 'Functional Genomics and Drug Discovery: Strategic Approaches for Decision Making' will bring together science and business leaders, who make operational, strategic or investment decisions related to drug discovery and development. Case-based teaching and group discussions will provide insights in real-world applications. Readmore

The Sanctum Mayakardium Progress in Reducing Heart Attack Deaths Stalls
 

 

 

|| February 22: 2018 || ά. The British Heart Foundation:BHF has today warned that progress in reducing premature deaths in under 75 from coronary heart disease, the leading cause of heart attacks -, is slowing to a near standstill, according to the latest figures. Although, there was a small fall in deaths from coronary heart disease in 2016, the charity’s figures show that the death rate declined by just 11% between 2012 and 2016, compared to 24% between 2007 and 2011. In 2016 in the UK, 22,615 people died from coronary heart disease before they reached the age of 75, the equivalent of 434 people every week. In total, more than 66,000 people of all ages lost their lives to the disease, which remains one of the UK’s single biggest killers.

The UK’s leading heart research charity says that the slowing down in progress could soon spell the end of decades of continuous decline in deaths from heart disease unless research is accelerated to improve diagnosis and treatment. The number of people dying from coronary heart disease has more than halved over the last 30 years, largely thanks to medical breakthroughs such as the introduction of clot-busting drugs and stenting, alongside the substantial fall in smoking rates. However, further research in to areas such as how to stop the furring of the arteries that leads to a heart attack is urgently needed to keep up the pace of progress. The BHF, also, says that ensuring that more people with conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol are treated effectively, irrespective of where they live in the UK, could bring down the number of people, who die prematurely from coronary heart disease in the UK each year.

The Humanion The Recipients of The Princess Therese of Bavaria Prize 2017 Announced

|| February 23: 2018: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München News || ά. This year, seven female academics at LMU have been selected to receive the Princess Therese of Bavaria Prize 2017 for their outstanding contributions to research. The Princess Therese of Bavaria Prize was instituted by the eponymous Foundation with the aim of honouring the achievements and highlighting the careers of exceptional female researchers at LMU Munich. The Prize is awarded annually and the selection criteria stipulate that each awardee should have a distinguished research record but should, also, have inspired younger women to pursue academic careers. The Foundation was set up at LMU in 1997.

It was named after the Anthropologist and Zoologist Princess Therese of Bavaria, 1850-1925, who carried out field research in both Europe and America. She was an active supporter of higher education for women and was herself the first woman to receive an honorary doctorate from LMU. This year, seven female scholars in the Humanities and Cultural Sciences have been chosen to receive the Prize, which will was presented on February 09,. The awards are sponsored by the Heidehof Foundation. The nine recipient academics are Professor Dr Beate Kellner, Dr Urte Krass, Dr Kristina Liefke, Professpr Dr Isabelle Mandrella, Dr Simone Mühl, Dr Denise Reitzenstein and Dr Verina Wild. Readmore

The Idearian Echoing Eternities You Live for Something: You Stand for Something: You Die for Something: For: Law Changes the Conscience Doesn't: The Echoing Eternities of The White Rose

|| February 23: 2018: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München News || ά. Socrates proved once and for all that if you lived for something you ought to be prepared to die for that very thing. And, The White Rose, repeated the same proof once again by following the footsteps of Socrates across the wide expanse of the geography of time. And out of this, one of the brave soul, Sophie Scholl says: Law changes, the conscience does not. Hitler's 'laws' sent them to their deaths but at the court of their conscience they stood where they did before: at liberty in the harmony, being one with their conscience in that they refused to accept evil to carry on and made a stand against it knowing what that might lead to. The White Rose Resistance Group: On June 27, 1942, in the third year of the war, members of the White Rose group disseminated the first of their leaflets calling for passive resistance against the Nazi regime.

Five further appeals followed, the last calling for the overthrow of Hitler’s dictatorship. The LMU students Willi Graf, Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell, Sophie Scholl and Hans Scholl, together with LMU Professor Kurt Huber, formed the core of the group, which maintained informal links with other individuals and groups opposed to the Nazi regime. On February 18, 1943, Hans and Sophie Scholl were arrested by the Gestapo, after they had scattered copies of their latest leaflet around the Main Building. Further arrests were made in the days following and, in several separate trials, the leading members of the White Rose were convicted and sentenced to death. In all cases, the sentences were carried out without delay in the prison in Munich-Stadelheim. Since 1945, immediately after the war ended, LMU has been committed to keeping the legacy of the White Rose alive. An annual White Rose Memorial Lecture was instituted, which is delivered by an invited speaker at a commemorative ceremony every February. The permanent exhibition in the DenkStätte Weiße Rose tells the story of the courage and sacrifice of the group’s members. Readmore

United Kingdom Batches of Ventolin Accuhaler and Seretide Accuhaler Asthma Inhalers are Recalled

|| February 21: 2018 || ά. People with asthma are being asked to replace specific batches of their Ventolin Accuhaler inhalers, used for the emergency relief of asthmatic symptoms. This is due to a manufacturing issue, that results in a small number of the devices not delivering the full number of doses. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency:MHRA has today issued a patient level drug alert recalling two specific affected lots manufactured by Glaxo Wellcome UK Limited.

The patients, who have used the affected batches of Ventolin, may, find that their symptoms are not relieved as normal by their Ventolin Accuhaler. If, this happens, they should seek medical advice. Affected Accuhalers should be returned to their pharmacist for a replacement. Additionally, one lot of Seretide Accuhaler, used for the maintenance of preventative treatment of asthma, is being recalled from hospitals, pharmacies, dispensing practices, retailers and wholesalers in the UK.

 Biochemistry Here are the Ties: Tie or Un-tie as You Will

|| February 23: 2018: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München News || ά. LMU researchers have developed a method, that enables cell-surface receptors to be switched on and off at will. The technique promises to provide new insights into receptor functions and their effects on intracellular signalling pathways. G-protein-coupled transmembrane receptors:GPCRs are intimately involved in the regulation of a wide range of biological processes. They work by binding extracellular messenger molecules, such as, hormones and activating intracellular signalling relays, that alter cell functions in specific ways. Not surprisingly, functional defects in these membrane-bound receptors, often, lead to chronic physiological disorders.

This explains why a large proportion of current pharmacological research focuses on finding drugs, that target specific GPCRs. A research collaboration involving groups led by Professor Anja Hoffmann-Röder, of Organic Chemistry at LMU, Dirk Trauner, formerly at LMU, now, at New York University and Professor David Hodson, University of Birmingham, has now designed a suite of molecules with which GPCRs and, potentially, other receptor types, can be pharmacologically activated and deactivated at will. These agents promise to uncover new aspects of the molecular mechanisms, that underlie the actions of receptors and in doing so should facilitate the development of new therapeutic strategies. The new findings appear in the online journal ACS Central Science. Readmore

Biomedicojurisprudence The Organ Donation: Deemed Consent Bill 2017-19

|| February 21: 2018 || ά. The Organ Donation: Deemed Consent Bill 2017-19 is being tabled for its Second Reading on February 23 at the House of Commons. This briefing paper provides background on the organ donation consent system, an overview of the Bill and views on this. Organ donation rates have increased significantly in the UK in the last decade but there is still a shortage of donors and hundreds of people die whilst waiting for an organ in the UK each year. One of the proposals to address this organ shortage is a move to an opt out organ donation consent system.

The current organ donation system in England is an opt in system. The Human Tissue Act 2004 sets out that a person can consent to donate their organs by expressing a view during their lifetime or by appointing a representative to consent on their behalf. If, a decision on organ donation has not been made in these ways, their family will be asked to give consent. However, where the patient has not expressed a wish to donate or their register status is not known, the current family consent rate is only 46.7%. Where the patient’s wish to donate was known at the time of potential donation, 91% of families consent to donation. Readmore

United Kingdom UK Government Loses Third Air Pollution Case as Judge Rules Air Pollution Plans Unlawful

|| February 21: 2018 || ά. Environmental lawyers Client Earth today have won a third case against the UK government over the country’s illegal and harmful levels of air pollution. In a ruling handed down at the High Court in London this morning, Judge Mr Justice Garnham declared that the government’s failure to require action from 45 local authorities with illegal levels of air pollution in their area unlawful. He ordered ministers to require local authorities to investigate and identify measures to tackle illegal levels of pollution in 33 towns and cities as soon as possible as 12 of the 45 are projected to have legal levels by the end of 2018.

This will be of great embarrassment to ministers, as it is the third time that they have lost an air pollution court battle against Client Earth. Speaking outside of the court, Client Earth lawyer Ms Anna Heslop said, “For the third time in the space of three years, the courts have declared that the government is failing in its obligation to clean up the air in our towns and cities. We are delighted that the court has today ordered the government to urgently take further action to fix the dangerous air pollution in our towns and cities. The problem was supposed to be cleaned up over eight years ago and, yet, successive governments have failed to do enough. Readmore

Languages So What About Jedek: Jedek Shows the Sense of Equality and Belonging to the Mother Earth is Natural and Human: And: And That the Concepts of Ownership and Competition are Anti-Nature and Implanted

|| February 19: 2018: Lund University News || ά. A previously unknown language has been found in the Malay Peninsula by linguists from Lund University in Sweden. The language has been given the name Jedek. The language is an Aslian variety within the Austroasiatic language family and is spoken by 280 people, who are settled hunter-gatherers in northern Peninsular Malaysia. The researchers discovered the language during a language documentation project, Tongues of the Semang, in which they visited several villages to collect language data from different groups who speak Aslian languages. The researchers were studying the Jahai language in the same area.

The community in which Jedek is spoken is more gender-equal than Western societies, there is, almost, no interpersonal violence, they consciously encourage their children not to compete and there are no laws or courts. There are no professions either; rather, everyone has the skills, that are required in a hunter-gatherer community. This way of life is reflected in the language. There are no indigenous words for occupations or for courts of law and no indigenous verbs to denote ownership, such as, borrow, steal, buy or sell but there is a rich vocabulary of words to describe exchanging and sharing. ''Documentation of endangered minority languages, such as, Jedek is important, as it provides new insights into human cognition and culture.” says Ms Joanne Yager, doctoral student at Lund University.

New Research May Provide the Key to Improved Treatments for Aggressive Form of Cancer

|| February 19: 2018: Maynooth University News || ά. An international team of researchers, including, Professor Ken Duffy from Maynooth University and Dr. Cristina Lo Celso of Imperial College London, has made major breakthroughs in the study of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia:AML, which could lead to the improved treatment of sufferers of this aggressive cancer of the blood, that affects one in 200 men and one in 250 women in the UK. One of the reasons this new research is so important is that there is a pressing clinical need for more effective treatments for AML, which has a low cure rate of 05-15% in patients older than 60 and has been treated with, essentially, the same techniques for the past 30 years.

Their research is the subject of two papers, one of which has been published in the prestigious Cell Stem Cell journal, while the other has been published by high profile journal Nature Communications. The first study led to the new understanding that leukaemia, essentially, outcompetes healthy cells for resources, largely, oblivious to the fact that healthy cells are being eliminated. The other study, subsequently, established that a therapy for protecting the bone marrow region, that maintains rare blood stem cells, which become heavily occupied by leukaemia, enhanced chemotherapeutic effect and allow blood regeneration. It had previously been thought that AML actively shut down healthy blood production in the bone marrow.

What About Of Mice and Human: New Study Shows Viruses and Checkpoint Inhibitors Work Together to Cure Resistant Cancer in Mice

|| February 18: 2018: University of Ottawa and Ottawa Hospital News || ά. Immunotherapy, which helps the body’s immune system attack cancer, has revolutionised treatment for cancers, such as, melanoma and leukemia. However, many other kinds of cancer remain resistant. A new study led by researchers at the Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa suggests that a combination of two immunotherapies, oncolytic viruses and checkpoint inhibitors, could be much more successful in treating breast cancer and, possibly, other cancers. Their study, which uses mouse models, is published in Science Translational Medicine.

“It was absolutely amazing to see that we could cure cancer in most of our mice, even, in models, that are, normally, very resistant to immunotherapy.” said Dr Marie-Claude Bourgeois-Daigneault, Lead Author of the study and a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. John Bell’s group at the Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa. “We believe that the same mechanisms are at work in human cancers but further research is needed to test this kind of therapy in humans.” In the current study, the researchers focused on 'triple negative' breast cancer, which is the most aggressive and difficult to treat kind of breast cancer. The researchers studied three mouse models of triple negative breast cancer and found that all were resistant to a checkpoint inhibitor, which is commonly used to treat other kinds of cancer.

Controversial Pregnancy Test Drug Shows Deformities in Zebrafish Embryos Within Hours of Exposure

|| February 18: 2018: University of Aberdeen News || ά. The components of a controversial drug, allegedly linked to birth defects in the 1960s and '70s, caused deformations to fish embryos just hours after they received a dose in new studies by researchers at the University of Aberdeen. Primodos was a hormone pregnancy test used by thousands of women in the UK between 1958 and 1978. Research at the time suggested that the drug could be linked to a higher risk of women giving birth to babies with abnormalities, a claim denied by Primodos’ manufacturer. Although, Primodos is no longer in use, its components, Norethisterone acetate and Ethinyl estradiol, are used in other medications today, including, treatments for endometriosis and contraceptives.

In November last year a UK Government expert working group:EWG study found no ‘causal association’ between the drug and the abnormalities, stating that outdated methods used by scientists in the 1970s was partly responsible for a failure to find a connection. Now a new study at the University of Aberdeen, published in the Scientific Reports journal, has shown more about the effects of Primodos’ components on the embryos of zebrafish. The paper outlines how after the components of Primodos were added to water around zebrafish embryos, their movement slowed down rapidly, developed changes to the heart within four hours and within 24 hours displayed damage to tissues, such as, the fins, eyes and spinal cords.

Where Do You Think You are Hiding Bacteria: Somewhere You Can Not Find Us: Ah But We Can See You

|| February 17: 2018: University of Edinburgh News || ά. A medical imaging technology, under development, has enabled doctors to see bacteria deep inside patients’ lungs for the first time. Early tests indicate the bedside technology, may be, able to detect harmful bacteria in patients’ lungs in less than 60 seconds. Fast diagnosis would enable critically ill patients to be given the right medicine quickly and could avoid unnecessary use of antibiotics. The technology is being showcased at the Annual Congress of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Austin, Texas, on February 15-19.

Each year around 20 million patients in intensive care need ventilators to help them breathe. Up to one-third of these patients are suspected to have serious lung infections. Doctors currently diagnose infections using X-rays, which are imprecise. Tests on fluid samples extracted from patients’ lungs, may, also, be used, but these can take days to return a result. Researchers from the Universities of Edinburgh and Bath and Heriot-Watt University are developing a new approach with major funding from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council:EPSRC. The consortium, called, Proteus, is developing the imaging tool, that can reach deeper into the lungs than existing devices. Readmore

So What Have You Been Doing at King's College London All This Time: Well We Have Been Advancing Hearteogenics Without Knowing You Call It That

|| February 21: 2017 || ά. Astronauts tend to become taller in weightlessness, which causes back pain and makes it difficult to fit into spacesuits. They, may be, more likely to suffer from ‘slipped discs’ after landing. Researchers at King’s College London, have been testing a Skinsuit to combat these problems, using a novel simulation of microgravity: adding magnesium salts to a half-filled waterbed. They were inspired by the Dead Sea, where swimmers float on the surface because of the high salt content. Well, at least, this proves that inspiration can come from anywhere, even, the Dead Sea!

“The high salt content provides additional buoyancy.” explains Study Leader <r David A Green. “Our test subjects don’t just sink to the bottom but float on the surface, even, though, the bed is only half full. Furthermore, as heavier body segments, such as, hips sink into the bed in proportion to their mass, overall the body lies close to being horizontal in an entirely relaxed state.” But Mr Philip Carvil, another Researcher says, “During our longer trials we’ve seen similar increases in stature to those experienced in orbit, which suggests it is a valid representation of microgravity in terms of the effects on the spine.” Readmore

Circadian Rhythm of Stress Hormone Disrupted

|| February 21: 2017 || ά. Shiseido Limited and National Research and Development Agency Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency:JAXA have conducted a joint research project using a closed-off chamber environment training facility or the isolation chamber in JAXA's Tsukuba Space Centre  and observed a disruption in the circadian rhythm of salivary stress hormone cortisol and found an increased distortion in facial expression during the stay of the participants in the isolation chamber. The research team has discovered the possibility of quick stress self-assessment by studying changes in saliva and facial expression.

Based on the results of this ongoing joint research, Shiseido will pursue the development of comprehensive beauty solutions to minimise the effects of stress on skin and body, while JAXA will leverage the results to establish a stress assessment method for astronauts aboard the ISS. JAXA has been considering the introduction of biomarkers for stress self-assessment so that astronauts can easily check their stress level by themselves, when they are unable to receive regular professional face to face assessments on their mental and psychological health. As part of these initiatives, JAXA runs tests in the isolation chamber, that precisely controls the experiment conditions and tracks the participants’ behaviors in detail. Readmore

Livability: Because It All Adds Up: One Human Soul Alone and Disconnected: Zero: All Human-Souls Connected in One: Infinity

It all adds up, this agency says. And, it does; all, literally, adds up: no human soul can exist on its own but that's precisely what dehumanisation wants to do: to separate and tear asunder every single soul from the others, from the rest of humanity to the point that it has no one and has no connection to anyone or anything or any place and, it is, effectively, cut off from the earth, air, water and skies of life: no sustenance is received by this soul, which now is bound to perish away, suffering and paying the price of this all-consuming disconnect. Agencies, that think, they can fix mental health issues with 'devices, contraptions, gadgets and machinations and screaming and shouting out mental health and wearing t-shirt saying mental health, may, continue to do so but mental health is related to, connected with and determined by the quality of real connections, interactions, inter-exchanges and creative correlations, the individuals have with their families, friends, colleagues and fellow humanity, locality, communities and wider society. These, may or may not, have direct medical origin and, often, these are unknown or not yet understood fully or properly, but these conditions will always be impacted and shaped and made worse by the quality of the conditions of all these areas we have mentioned in which the people suffering will live.

Mental health issues are terribly complex and the term itself is a terribly inadequate one to capture its almost infinite range but, despite being taken as a medical issue, it is not just a physiological one so that psychiatry is the branch of medicine, that deals with it, most of these conditions do not have a cure but these are managed and, yet, all of them, are made infinitely more bearable to the sufferers, where they receive the support from a human 'network' of resources, that is comprised with family, friends, colleagues and fellow humans, including, all the agencies, there are, who are there to offer that absolutely vital support. Tablets, capsules and therapies have never been and never will be enough, on their own, to 'deal' with the ever increasing mental illnesses and, as the speed and space of dehumanisation increase, they will impact more and more people in all societies but the sufferers will need both: the medicine part of it and the humanity part of it. This is the view The Humanion sincerely seeks to put forward in terms of mental health. Readmore

Sylvia Plath

Gold leaves shiver
In this crack of time;
Yellow flickers
In the shrill clear sun;
Light pirouettes
In ballet dress,
While blue above
Leaps the sheer sky.

-------------------------

Brief gold glitters
In the gutters;
Flares and flashes,
Husky rushes

-------------------------

And in that moment
Silent, cold,
Across the lawn,
Dull pools of gold.

Emily Dickinson

The Brain- is wider than the Sky-
For--- put them side by side--
The one the other will contain
With ease---- and You---- beside---

The Brain is deeper than the Sea----
For---hold them---Blue to Blue---
The one the other will absorb----
As Sponges----Buckets---- do---

The Brain is just the weight of God---
For-Heft them---Pound for Pound---
And they will differ---if they do----
As Syllable from Sound----

Christina Rossetti

Somewhere or other there must surely be
The face not seen, the voice not heard,
The heart that not yet-never yet- ah me!
Made answer to my word.

|| February 14: 2018 || ά. Now, here is this bright and beautiful celestial ring. And whose is it, this ring? Or, rather, who is the architect of this formation or who the participants are in this cosmic geometric alliance? Glimmering with colour and light against a pitch-black sky, this ring was seen during the eclipse, that took place on August 21, 2017 across the USA. This event was a total solar eclipse, meaning that the Moon slipped perfectly in front of the Sun and blocked the entirety of the star’s light, an occurrence, known as, totality, for a band of observers across the country.

The shadow of the eclipse took 01.5 hours to cross the USA, moving from Oregon to South Carolina and gave eager eclipse-watchers within the totality belt up to 160 seconds of total darkness. This snapshot was captured during an eclipse expedition to the USA as part of ESA’s Co-operation Through Education in Science and Astronomy Research:CESAR educational initiative. CESAR engages students in the wonders of science and technology, astronomy in particular. The expedition team organised a special event on eclipse day and delivered a broadcast, including, eclipse footage and talks with experts. Readmore

 Statins Found to Help Prevent Scar Tissue in the Eye
   

Here We Celebrate The Power Of Human Spirit

|| January 29: 2018: University of Helsinki News: Päivi Lehtinen Writing || ά. According to a Finnish study, Statin medication seems to reduce the risk of repeated surgery in patients, who undergo a vitrectomy to treat a detached retina. The researchers believe that Statins, might, prevent the formation of scar tissue inside the eye. Conducted at the Helsinki University Hospital, the population-based cohort study is based on an extensive store of register data of Finnish patients, who have undergone vitreo-retinal eye surgery. The study examined renewed surgeries among 5,709 eye patients, who were admitted to hospital for a vitreo-retinal surgical procedure between 2008 and 2014.

The results indicate that use of Statin medication at the time of surgery was associated with a 28% reduction in the risk of renewed surgery among patients, who underwent a primary vitrectomy to treat retinal detachment. However, Statin medication was not found to be associated with a reduced risk of renewed surgery in the other vitreo-retinal disease groups involving retinal surgery, such as, age-related macular pucker formation or vitrectomies performed to treat diabetic retinopathy. “It seems that Statin treatment is beneficial in the treatment of retinal detachment, the most serious common retinal disorder, which, may, at worst, lead to blindness.” says Docent Ms Sirpa Loukovaara from the HUCH eye clinic, who led the study.

End Homelessness The Humanion Campaign There Can Not Be Any Meaningful Citizenship When Citizens Have No Homes: Right to a Home Must Be a Building-Block-Foundational Universal Human Right Without Which There Can Not Exist Any Human Right for When a Human Soul is Dying on the Street Rough Sleeping Where is and What is Her:His Human Rights: End Homelessness

As this young person was born, being entitled by law, to be a British Citizen, she should be equally entitled by that same token, to have a right to a home for there can not exist a 'person' without a home nor can there exist a person without proper and necessary food, drink and nutrition meaning the rights to a citizenship, a home, stable supply of food and drink, an education, medicare and a job should be seen as Building-Block-Foundational Universal Human Rights on which all other Humans Rights can and do exist and without the existence of these Building-Block-Foundational Human Rights the existing Human Rights simply remain hypothetical. For example, what does 'the 'right to life' mean to this young person, who has become homeless and is left on the street to rough  sleep, suffer the horror, degradation, hunger, cold and inhumanity and, eventually, perish? End Homelessness because it is not a charity but human right for humans to exist as human beings.
