Poetry of Neurology

We are more than our neurons or their combinations, co-relations, conjunctions, functions and interactions, that are conducted through their gap junctions, synapses or action potentials. We are more than the cells, tissues, organs, systems, DNAs, RNAs, genes etc and their ultimate unification into a whole mechanism and system of magnificence. We are an infinity unfolding itself in the name of the human mind which, through the physiology of what on appearance is a human physique, it becomes, dreams, imagines, creates, loves and does human: the most astonishing of all things, that we find on this Universe. All we have to do is to look at its unity off the billion plus expressions of its self and wonder about its endless expressive diversity off the same self in billion plus instances to realise that this human mind is magnificent a thing for the purpose of which the neurology is given to it as the most sophisticated, most elaborately engineered, most complexity-strewn an architecture, a most awe-inspiring bio-chemico-genetico-mechanism, that we humans will ever see in this Universe; nothing else will ever surpass this magnificence.

And it all begins with the book of genome, that has already been written, that will have all the tools to keep on writing the future of a human physiology and with that begins the human life and soon the Cardiology is formed and follows neurology: the  duo or the two in one or the one in two: for they, neither ends nor begins alone but, rather, both just clasp, grasp, sew, knit, cut, run, crisscross, bind, bend, blend and flow in, out, between and through the human physiology in such an 'infinity of subtle, intricate and sublime artistry', that the entire creation of this Universe does not have a parallel to show next to it. And with this Cardiology and Neurology the human becomes more than a physiology: it becomes a human mind and that has not been written out, unlike the genome, which has been, and, here is, where the entire life of this human mind is, as if it has got infinity of white papers bundled into a beautiful blank book, that no one can know how to write but that human mind alone does and this is where humanity is, this is what humanity is and this is how humanity is and this why we publish The Humanion to write a Beautiful Book out of those blank white pages of that book, where genome alone can never write a single word unless The Sanctum Mayakardium and The High Neuranium join forces to make 'one': the one, that is exactly like the heart with two atria; or the one, that is exactly like the brain with two hemispheres: it is two in one and one in two. And here is to this awe, to Humanity

Political Economics Fairtrade: Trade Fair: Introducing World’s First Fairtrade Gold From Africa

|| September 22: 2017 || ά. Fairtrade has made history this week, on September 21, announcing the first ever shipment of African Fairtrade gold from Uganda, with a select number of pieces, made from the precious metal expected to go on sale in stores in time for Christmas. These symbolic grains of African Fairtrade gold were shown to delegates attending a Fairtrade Foundation Conference Fairtrade Gold: Future Innovations at the Goldsmiths Centre, where Mr Michael Gidney, CEO of the Fairtrade Foundation showed Fairtrade’s innovative work to help transform the lives of artisanal small scale miners across Africa by providing access to international markets and finance.

Fairtrade are supporting small scale mine sites in East Africa to access international markets and make the supply of gold more transparent with improved trading initiatives. The first formal full ‘trade’ of African gold, from Uganda, will take place in October, with CRED Jewellers, supported by Greg Valerio and EWAD. Fairtrade will then scale up work to reach other mine sites from Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya and to grow the volume of Fairtrade gold available to be exported on Fairtrade terms. Fairtrade certified gold will reach not just jewellers, but businesses in the tech sector, too.

Mr Gidney announced an ambitious new partnership, that will include technology businesses Fairphone and Philips. Launching fully in 2018 and funded by the Dutch Government, the partnership will support artisanal small scale gold mines in Busia, Uganda, to responsibly mine gold and eventually sell their gold into the supply chains of these technology businesses, establishing a blueprint for others in the technology sector to learn from. The programme will be delivered in collaboration between Fairtrade, Solidaridad, HIVOS and UNICEF.

Life Elle A New Million Pound Project to Help Shape Policies That Tackle Diet-Related Non-Communicable Diseases

|| September 23: 2017: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine News || ά. The most effective measures to improve people’s diets and help reduce the rates of obesity, type two diabetes and cardiovascular disease, are to be evaluated in a new research project, led by Dr Laura Cornelsen, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who has been awarded a Career Development Fellowship from the Medical Research Council:MRC worth £01 million over five years. The MRC Career Development Awards support researchers, looking to establish their own teams for challenging and ambitious research programmes.

The research will consider the impact of measures, which are the cause of much debate in tackling poor diets, changes in food prices or industry-led voluntary changes, such as, product reformulation, changing package sizes or removing sweets from till checkouts. This innovative five-year programme will use recent data on household food and beverage expenditures in Britain, spanning over five years to analyse food and drink choices and purchases for consumption both in and outside the home. Preventable non-communicable diseases:NCDs, including, obesity and type two diabetes, affect populations all around the world. According to the World Health Organisation, NCDs kill an estimated 40 million people annually, equivalent to 70% of all deaths globally. Readmore

New Breakthrough Might Pave the Way to Develop New Type of Vaccine to Treat Global Viruses Such as Zika, Dengue and Hepatitis C

|| September 20: 2017: University of Southampton News || ά. Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a significant discovery in efforts to develop a vaccine against Zika, dengue and Hepatitis C viruses, that affect millions of people around the world. In a study published in Science Immunology, researchers have shown that natural killer cells:NK cells, which are a fundamental part of the body’s immune system, can recognise many different viruses, including, the global pathogens, such as, Zika, dengue and Hepatitis C viruses, through a single receptor, called, KIR2DS2. Lead researcher Professor Salim Khakoo, of Hepatology, said that the findings were very exciting and could change the way viruses are targeted by vaccines but warned that the research was still at an early stage and animal studies:clinical trials would be needed to test the findings.

Vaccines work by stimulating the immune response to the coat of proteins on the virus, enabling the body to fight off the virus and recognise it in the future. However, the viruses are able to change their coat proteins, helping them being able to evade the antibodies, meaning some viruses can be very hard to vaccinate against. The Southampton research team have shown that this NK cell receptor is able to target a non-variable part of the virus, called, the NS3 helicase protein, which is essential in making the virus work properly. Unlike other proteins, the NS3 helicase protein does not change, which allows the immune system to grab hold of it and let the NK cells deal with the threat. Professor Khakoo said, “The NS3 helicase protein could be the key in unlocking the defence of lethal viruses, that affect so many people around the world. Readmore

New Study Shows the Dermatological Effects of Hard Water on the Skin

|| September 21: 2017 || ά. Hard water damages our protective skin barrier and could contribute to the development of eczema, a new study has shown. Researchers from the University of Sheffield and King’s College London have discovered that exposing the skin to hard water damages the skin barrier, which is our defence against outside threats, such as, bacteria or sun burn and increases the sensitivity of the skin to potential irritants found in everyday wash products, such as, soap or washing powder. Hard water contains high levels of calcium and magnesium ions, that bind to surfactants, such as, sodium lauryl sulfate:SLS and sodium lauryl ether sulfate:SLES, which act as detergents or wetting agents, making them insoluble, so they precipitate onto the skin.

Skin pH is normally acidic but hard water has high alkalinity, which means it can raise the skin surface pH. A shift towards alkaline pH disturbs the skin’s natural function as a physical barrier and leaves it prone to colonisation by, potentially, pathogenic bacteria, which can cause infection. Lead Author of the study, Dr Simon Danby from the University of Sheffield’s Department of Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease, said, “By damaging the skin barrier, washing with hard water may contribute to the development of eczema – a chronic skin condition characterised by an intensely itchy red rash. “Patients with eczema are much more sensitive to the effects of hard water than people with healthy skin. This increase in sensitivity is associated with a genetic predisposition to a skin barrier defect brought about by mutations in the gene encoding filaggrin. Filaggrin is a structural protein important for the formation of our skin’s barrier to the outside environment. Readmore

Poets' Letter Philip Ruthen's Familial

|| September 23: 2017 || ά. From the second London Poetry Festival the Festival Poets in Residence Programme was introduced as part of the Festival's commitments to new, young and emerging poetic voices and offered five poets the Residencies, who became the Signature presentation of the Festival. The Residencies of the 2nd Festival went to these talented poets: Mr Alan Buckley, Dr Girija Emma Jane Shettar, Mr Luke Wright, Ms Malgorzata Kitowski and Mr Philip Ruthen. This piece, however, is not about the other poets but about Mr Philip Ruthen. Mr Ruthen was reading all across town, writing, work-shopping and publishing and one day he happened to have found out The Poets' Letter and the Poets' Letter Poetry Performance Series at the Poetry Cafe, Covent Garden and he arrived and read and the rest was not quite history because he became and remains a part of all that Poets' Letter and London Poetry Festival sought to do. He continued his journey as a poet, writing and publishing works, which eventually, culminated to an assured first full collection, Jetty View Holding, few years ago.
He kept at it, and as such, Mr Ruthen has continued to reach for, found and responded to landscapes, realms and soundscapes, of intricate subtleties and with depths and dimensions, that not many find their way into; and he has acquired the mastery of the poetic craft and the language with such command that they do exactly what he asks them to do: to speak as he does. He, who speaks with a voice, that is authentic, epically-dramatic without being hollow, shallow and pointlessly 'loud' and what is worse, the crass sentimentality and sensationalism. He writes poetry with this sense of calm as if he had learnt to enter the Universe of the words and seen how they whispers to him so to respect their solitude. And as one does at a Library, one resonates the atmosphere, Mr Ruthen's poetic work is deep, sincere and it travels as the water does in the Pacific: one can hardly perceive it move: but does it move? It does. Readmore

 Sheep Gene Study May Help Breed Healthier Animals

|| September 19: 2017: University of Edinburgh News || ά. Fresh insights into the genetic code of sheep could aid breeding programmes to improve their health and productivity. Scientists have mapped which genes are turned on and off in the different tissues and organs in a sheep’s body. Their findings shed new light on the animal’s complex biology, including, insight into the function of genes linked to immunity and meat quality. Researchers say that the insights could, eventually, inform animal breeding programmes, aimed at improving farmers’ stocks.

Sheep have more than 20,000 different genes but not all of these are expressed in each tissue type in the body. The research team focused on genetic material, called, RNA, which is produced as an intermediate step, when DNA code is translated into the proteins and molecules, that make up cells and tissues. RNA serves as a functional read-out of exactly which genes are expressed in which tissues at any one time. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute analysed the total RNA produced in each tissue of the sheep’s body. Readmore

Biochemistry Melatonin May Aid Cancer Patients to Prevent Chemotherapy Induced Neuropathic Pain

|| September 19: 2017: University of Edinburgh News || ά. Painful side effects from cancer medicines could be tackled with a drug, that eases the effects of jet lag, research suggests. The drug Melatonin appears to prevent pain, caused by chemotherapy damage to nerves. In the study it has been found to be able to block harmful effects on nerve health. The study was conducted with rats. Researchers say that the findings may help scientists understand more about the ways to limit painful side effects of chemotherapy.

Scientists from the Universities of Edinburgh and Aberdeen focused on a common condition, known as, chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain:CINP, which causes tingling and pain sensation to touch and cold temperatures, that can be severe enough to cause patients to limit their chemotherapy treatment. CINP affects almost 70% of patients undergoing chemotherapy and can have severe impact on quality of life. Everyday activities, including, fastening buttons or walking barefoot, can cause pain, that can persist, even, after the cancer is cured, meaning that some patients are unable to return to work or able to carry out household tasks.

|| September 14: 2017: University of Helsinki News: Hanna Poikonen Writing || ά. Music activates our deeper brain areas, but what happens in a dancer’s brain? Movement can trigger a flow-state, which makes way for an intuitive neural network. As technology takes over more areas of our lives, interest in more natural ways of life has, also, increased massively. One example of this desire to reconnect with nature is the upsurge of yoga and meditation retreats. Music and dance have been fundamental parts of the human experience for millennia. They have enabled interaction, which has given rise to close communities and rich cultures.

Neuroscience has studied music for decades. It has been found to activate the deeper brain areas in a unique way. Deep brain areas are, primarily, responsible for emotions, memory and social interaction. They evolved in the human brain much earlier than the cognitive functions in the cortex. My doctoral dissertation developed methods for understanding the processes, that dance generates in the cortex.  I compared the brain functions of professional dancers and musicians to people with no experience of dance or music as they watched recordings of a dance piece. The brain activity of the dancers was different from that of musicians and the control group during sudden changes in the music, long-term listening of music and the audio-visual dance performance.

The Heart News: Smoking and Diabetes Do Not Mix: Risk Factors for Peripheral Artery Disease

|| September 19: 2017 || ά. Smoking and diabetes are the two leading risk factors for peripheral artery disease:PAD, a narrowing of the arteries, which can result in amputation, according to a study part-funded by the British Heart Foundation:BHF. Diabetics, who smoked, were 16 times more likely to develop PAD than non-smoking non-diabetics. Cholesterol came top of the list of risk factors for coronary heart disease:CHD, when the coronary arteries supplying the heart become narrowed and can cause a heart attack.

Researchers from the University of Dundee followed 15,737 initially healthy people for 20 years in the Scottish Heart Health Extended Cohort:SHHEC. Over that time, 20 per cent developed CHD, while 03 per cent developed PAD. Both PAD and CHD are caused by fatty, inflamed, fibrous ‘plaques’, called, atheroma, developing within the walls of arteries, narrowing them and obstructing blood flow. In PAD, this process can lead to limb amputation and, in CHD, narrowing of the coronary arteries can result in a heart attack. Although, many of the risk factors were the same for both diseases, this was not true of all and their relative importance differed significantly.

Carbon Crisis: Experts Call for Urgent Changes to Limit Global Warming

|| September 22: 2017: University of Manchester News || ά. Experts have warned that we must move much more quickly towards a low-carbon world, if we are to have any chance of limiting global warming to 02oC this century. Changes in electricity, heat, buildings, industry and transport are needed rapidly and must happen all together, according to researchers at the universities of Manchester, Sussex and Oxford in a new study published in the journal Science. To provide a reasonable, 66%, chance of limiting global temperature increases to below 02oC, the International Energy Agency and International Renewable Energy Agency suggest that global energy-related carbon emissions must peak by 2020 and fall by more than 70% in the next 35 years.

This implies a tripling of the annual rate of energy efficiency improvement, retrofitting the entire building stock, generating 95% of electricity from low-carbon sources by 2050 and shifting almost entirely towards electric cars. This challenge necessitates the ‘rapid and deep decarbonisation’ of electricity, transport, heat, industrial, forestry and agricultural systems across the world but despite the recent rapid growth in renewable electricity generation, the rate of progress towards this wider goal remains slow. In addition, many energy and climate researchers remain wedded to approaches, that focus on a single area. The new study explains how the pace of the low-carbon transition can be accelerated using what it describes as ‘key lessons', focusing on the big picture rather than individual elements, aligning multiple innovations and systems, offering societal and business support and phasing out existing systems.

Books Mike Bowden Speaks of the Movement of Truth in His New Book

|| September 19: 2017  || ά. Mr Mike Bowden was born in 1960 in a small Hampshire village. Many people are born in small villages or towns or hamlets or places. That was the similarity he had with others until one day, someday, something happened to him, it must have, so that it had directed him towards writing and he wrote. Apparently, two volumes of a book, titled, the Truth of Movement. The proof of whether anything is living is in the answer of the question: does it move? Does it make progress? Or rather, does it make movement, that can be measured? Mr Bowden has written about the truth of movement. But, truth itself is a living thing, that what just is, can not but be so, therefore, it must have movement. Does it grow? Does it change? The truth? That what is, changes without altering and it alters all without touched by any alteration. How: one example: water changes all on earth but remains water as before, during and after the water cycle, regardless of all the various states of 'apparent' changes, that it goes through without changing itself.

And so, after many successful years in his career, life and many turbulent years in his personal life, he decided to follow his passions. He has now put pen to paper to share his thoughts and ideas. Writing in an open and honest style, he hopes that people can relate to his journey and accept that we live in an imperfect world. His real life experiences, his views and his knowledge has helped people to change their lives for the better. And we are writing this simply because it is desperately sickening to see how people seem to try to copy and replicate the same thing. Just hearing the expression, 'think outside the box', and you think, they must think they are being clever, but actually, it is horrible to ask somebody to think outside the box? Why the box, to begin with? There is no box: the Universe, in which we are, is a 'hypothetical' frontierless-spherical-infinity. Why on the Universe, are we to think of a box, that box immediately boxes the person, who is supposed to think? And here Mr Bowden agrees: he doesn't think outside the box......there is no box, no limits. If there are, we are not going to waste time, doing anything, let alone, write. Instead, we are going to do all we can to shatter the very idea of that box and shred it into dust. But he has written this book, that is published and will you wonder about it? Will seek to try and read it?

 It is Finally Becoming Evident That There is No Business Case for Slavery: Simply Because There is No Business Case for Poverty and for Failing Societies: While Companies Can Outsource Their Supply Chains They Cannot Outsource Their Responsibility: Thomson Reuters Foundation Names 15 Businesses Recognising the Global Fight Against Forced Labour

|| September 21: 2017 || ά. The Thomson Reuters Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the world’s biggest news and information provider, has declared 15 shortlisted companies for its Stop Slavery Award. Now in its second year, the Award recognises businesses, that have set a gold standard in efforts to eradicate forced labour from their supply chains. Winners will be announced at the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s annual human rights conference, Trust Conference, on November 15, taking place in London. Adidas, Walmart, Nestlé and Barclays are amongst the selected from a number of applicants spanning clothing and food retailers to hospitality companies.

The winning companies will receive a sculpture by world-renowned artist Mr Anish Kapoor, as well as, the right to use the Stop Slavery Award logo for one year. The artwork, created by Mr Kapoor, especially, for the initiative, was first unveiled at the inaugural Awards ceremony at last year’s conference. “Corporations have a vital role to play in the fight against forced labour.” said Ms Monique Villa, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation. “Across corporate board rooms it is finally becoming evident that there is no business case for slavery, simply, because there is no business case for poverty and for failing societies. While companies can outsource their supply chains, they cannot outsource their responsibility. Readmore

On the Aftermath of the Mexico City Earthquake

|| September 20: 2017: Professor Tony Redmond: University of Manchester Writing || ά. Until this week, it had been 32 years since Mexico City suffered its last major earthquake. That was of 08.0 magnitude, which was, approximately, tenfold greater than Tuesday’s 07.1 magnitude. Over 5,000 people died and outside assistance was offered and received. Much has improved in the local, regional and international responses worldwide since then, particularly, in strengthening the local capacity to respond. Mexico is no exception and will have significant capacity to respond, fully supported by its neighbours and the Pan American Health Organisation:PAHO's disaster response.

It’s possible that specific outside help, beyond the region, may not, be asked for, but if it is, the medical help will be through the Emergency Medical Teams system at WHO:PAHO, co-ordinated though its Emergency Medical Teams Co-ordination Cell. This will embed with the national ministry of health and through its online ‘virtual on-site operations co-ordination centre’, will liaise with those registered international teams, who have indicated their willingness to deploy and with government, choose who is best suited to the needs they have identified.  This ensures that assistance is targeted on identified need, co-ordinated and in the case of medical practitioners, that they are appropriately trained, qualified and can be officially authorised to practice in Mexico.

Africa Closing the Health Gap for Africa Within a Generation is Achievable If Bold Policy Actions are Taken Now

|| September 23: 2017: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine News || ά. If health systems are transformed to target the needs of individual countries and communities and opportunities afforded by a rapidly growing workforce are seized, closing the health gap for Africa within a generation is achievable, according to a major new report published by The Lancet Commission on the future of health in Sub-Saharan Africa. ‘The Path to Longer and Healthier Lives for all Africans by 2030’ highlights the steps, that need to be taken to maximise opportunities to improve health, while, at the same time, preventing new challenges, such as, chronic diseases, from taking hold.

The report is authored by more than 20 health leaders, mainly, from across Africa, including, policy makers, academics, clinicians and entrepreneurs and was launched at the African Population and Health Research Centre:APHRC in Nairobi, Kenya on September 14. The authors set out their vision for people-centred health systems, that, in addition to providing high quality hospital care, focus on prevention, public health and primary care and have Africa-based and home-grown solutions, embedded within the realities of each country, at their core. Several initiatives have been introduced throughout Africa, including, partnerships with the private sector, promoting healthy behaviours and the involvement of patients and families in the management of their conditions.

Asia WHO Mounts High-Impact Health Response to Meet the Urgent Needs of the Rohingya People in Bangladesh

|| September 23: 2017 || ά. Trauma. Childbirth. Anxiety. Disease. These are some of the priority health needs of the more than 420,000 vulnerable people, who have sought refuge in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh after fleeing their homes in Myanmar’s Rakhine state beginning late August. Over 388,000 of them, mostly, women, children and the elderly, now reside in a series of makeshift and spontaneous settlements, wedged between the Bongophoshaagor:Bay of Baangla and the swollen Naf river. Their most pressing health need? “Access to emergency and basic health care services.” says Dr N Paranietharan, WHO Representative to Bangladesh.

“Whether to treat infectious disease, identify and treat malnutrition, to provide psychosocial support or ensure a woman can give birth safely, access to frontline services is critically important.” H said that safe drinking water and adequate sanitation were vital to prevent the spread of water-borne diseases. To help achieve these outcomes, WHO has released USD175,000 in emergency funding from the South-East Asia Regional Health Emergency Fund, a mechanism Member countries set up in 2008, that has provided more than USD05 million for 34 events across nine countries.

Europe China and the EU Strengthen Co-operation to Improve Water Security

|| September 21: 2017 || ά. Today, on September 21, China, the European Commission and several EU Member States signed a Declaration in Turku to strengthen water co-operation between the EU and China. The aim is to join forces to promote sustainable development and improve water security. China and the EU, also, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish dialogue on water policy. Solving water problems has a key role in the UN sustainable Development Goals, that should be achieved by 2030. One of the 17 goals aims at securing access to clean water and sanitation for all. Water security is important in terms of reaching many of the other goals.

''Finnish water expertise has a lot of demand in China, both in water protection and in the control of dam and flood risks. For example, our companies have sold equipment for the treatment of sewage sludge and monitoring dam safety. Joint efforts are, also, made to improve the state of Lake Taihu, the third largest lake in China. The work started by research in 2012 and now continues with practical measures as part of the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the Ministry of Water Resources of China. The lake is the source of drinking water for many large cities, including Shanghai. The Finnish model of public-private cooperation and successful practical experiences, such as, the restoration of Lake Vesijärvi in Lahti and Lake Pyhäjärvi in Säkylä, serve as encouraging examples.''  says Mr Kimmo Tiilikainen, Finland's
Minister for Housing, Energy and the Environment. Readmore

|| September 21: 2017  || ά. She has sung herself with her guitar being the wind of the white hues of the blues and the blues of the daze of the white solitude of Finnish landscape, where the lilies do not quite know whether the water is transparent or blue or white or nothing but a flowing unity, that simply is: both concurrent and eternally in one instance: breathtaking. And she has risen and spread her wings to the world of blues. Her blues and guitar playing are her blues: these are Erja Lyytinen-Blues.

WHO and Its Partners Respond to the Flood Crises in the former Northern Bahr El Ghazal and Upper Nile States of South Sudan

|| September 19: 2017 || ά. The World Health Organisation:WHO in partnership with the Ministry of Health and partners are scaling up the emergency response in the flood affected areas of Aweil West and Aweil North Counties of former Norther Bahr el Ghazal State, and Maban County of former Upper Nile State. As part of the health cluster response, WHO delivered lifesaving medical supplies to the communities affected by the heavy rainfall and subsequent flooding. The lifesaving health supplies will benefit 10,000 people living in areas deeply affected by the heavy rainfall in parts Northern Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile States of South Sudan for the next three months.

The supplies include 10 basic unit kits and 10 pneumonia kits for management of common illness. The supplies were deployed along with Medical Mobile Team:MMT to support other health partners in management of common illnesses to reduce excess mortality and morbidity and build the capacity of partners in early case detection of outbreak prone diseases.  “Building the capacity of partners, increasing human resource and medical supplies are vital in such acute emergencies since it increases access to quality health care services to the affected population.” said Mr Evans Liyosi, WHO Representative A.I to South Sudan.

Transitioning Leads to Greater Life and Job Satisfaction

|| September 18: 2017: Anglia Ruskin University News || ά.  A new Anglia Ruskin study suggests improved anti-discrimination laws could benefit employers. Transgender people, who have altered their outward appearance and accepted a new identity experience better mental health and greater job and life satisfaction, according to this new study. More legal and workplace protections for trans workers, such as, allowing them to change gender identification on official documents without undergoing gender reassignment surgery, would, also, help employers and countries maintain a more productive workforce, according to the study, published on Thursday, September 14 in the journal IZA World of Labour.

The research, led by an economist at Anglia Ruskin University, found that transitioning improves self-esteem by 27%, body image by 30%, optimism about the future by 26% and enjoyment of life tasks by 48%. However, the paper referenced studies from across the world, which found that 71% of trans employees attempted to hide their gender transitions from employers, while 57% delayed transition to avoid workplace discrimination. The study suggests that being open about one’s trans identity and coming closer to a desired outward appearance, that matches gender identity, may, promote life satisfaction and mental health.

 Political Philosophy The Fourth Annual Philosophy and Religion in Africana Traditions Conference 2017: Intersectionality and The Spirit of Activism: New York: October 27-28

|| September 14: 2017 || ά. Time, because it is, always being and vanishing in space, in human terms, we call it, time changes or rather, time goes. Where does it go? There, where the eternal-silent-space holds its sieve, ever-so-patiently and ever-so-dutifully, so that the time-dust, falls through and joins the eternal-silence of space. Time is like the word: after all human usages, where does it go? There, where it has always been, in 'non-existence', inside the 'eternal-silence' of the 'dictionary'. But here, we are to report, not silence, but speech because, the Fourth Annual Philosophy and Religion in Africana Traditions Conference 2017, what has become, affectionately, known as, PRAT Conference, is almost here. October is a just a fourteen-day-run up the hill and, a few more days and there it is: the Fourth PRAT Conference on October 27-28 in Emmaarner Rise or rather, good old New York.

When: Friday: October 27 at the Graduate Centre of the City University of New York: 365 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10016, Rooms 9204:9205 and Saturday: October 28: Mayday Community Space: 176 St. Nicholas Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11237: info at maydayspace.org. Topics for consideration are 01: Social Activism. What are the Main Terrains of struggle: What are the Strategies People are Putting Into Place: What are the Programmes Being Developed, For Instance, 'The Vision for Black Lives 'Movement'; 02: Culture and Politic. Speakers Will Address the Inter-Relationships Between Art and Politics and How Cultural Issues From Art, Films, Novels are Related to Liberation Struggles.

Palaeontology If You Can Time Travel: Where Would You Go: The Beginning and End Reside at the Same Place: So That Time Travelling One Comes Back to Find One's Whole Self Together Being as Now-Eternal

|| September 14: 2017: University of Helsinki News: Virve Pohjanpalo Writing || ά. Viral infections leave trace information in our tissues. Researchers can read it like a history book, extending from mediaeval smallpox epidemics to ancient Egypt. Virologist Ms Mari Toppinen began her journey through history at a lecture on identifying war dead, focusing on corpses left on the Russian side of the border after the war between Finland and the Soviet Union. The dead have been transported to Finland for identification, beginning in 1992. “I was listening to professor of forensic medicine, Antti Sajantila and I started wondering if the bones on the former battlefield could have signs of parvovirus, which was one of the research topics of our group.” Ms Toppinen says. “During the infection, the parvovirus multiplies, specifically, in the bone marrow.”

The parvovirus causes a common, typically, harmless disease, known as, fifth disease, which is characterised by an intense red rash. Scientists at the Department of Virology in the Academic Medical Centre in Helsinki place a special significance on it. It was while studying the very parvovirus that they found what a fascinating compendium of information viruses can leave in the tissues of their hosts during their visit. Ms Toppinen and her colleagues joined forces with forensic scientists and found parvovirus DNA in the bones. “We analysed 106 of the war dead. Approximately, every other individual had traces of the virus, despite the bones being exposed to UV radiation and the acidic earth.” Readmore

 
 

VI London Poetry Festival 2017: October 14-15: London Notting Hill St John's Church: The Festival is FREE But Tickets MUST Be Booked

Sharon Harriott: The Old Man

Cars and busses, feet on wet pavement,
Swoosh, tap, pace, and rap.
And you, oblivious to time, you lament
At dark windows, docking your cap.
Dapper old man in your battered suit,
Aiming your lighter toward your fag,
A story set in your own head, you salute
All that is familiar to you; a sad,
Weathered building in Muswell Hill.
Lights green, clutch off, and off,
I launch myself into now, and still
Seeing you, rush from all that was silent.

|| September 20: 2017 || ά. Artist Mr Alexander de Cadenet will present, for the first time in the UK, Creations, an exhibition at St Stephen Walbrook, a Sir Christopher Wren church in the City of London from October 03-November 03. The show is comprised of a series of life-sized, unique solid silver and gold plated hamburger sculptures, that are a protest against our society’s ever increasing materialistic greed and hunger for power and status. Two of the burgers include Trump Burger one and Trump Burger two. The sculptures consist of various materialistic objects, crammed in between a McDonald’s sesame seed burger bun, these watches, cars, planes, Barbie dolls and money display varying degrees of grotesquery. St Stephen Walbrook is based at 30 Walbrook, London, EC4N 8BN. The show opening times are 10:00 to 16:00, Monday to Friday.

Every Thursday there is a Prayer Meeting between 12:45 and 14:30. In keeping with the spiritual sanctity of the venue and in addition to the 10 new ‘Life Burger’ sculptures, there is a message of redemption in the form of a single much larger scale bronze apple with three bites taken form it. This work is designed to balance the more protesting themes explored by the burgers. The church has always had a connection with contemporary art and features an altar by Sir Henry Moore. During the exhibition, a conference, entitled, ‘Art Awakening Humanity’, organised by St Stephen Walbrook, in partnership with, Mr Alexander de Cadenet and Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine, will explore further the relationship between art and the spiritual dimension. The conference will take place on Wednesday, October 25. Readmore

London’s Growing Waste: Here is Recycling Technology for London to Call: Recycling is No Longer About Politics and Debates: It is Now a Desperate Imperative

|| September 23: 2017 || ά. The London Assembly Environment Committee published its report, ‘Waste: The Circular Economy’ on September 21, which examines how a circular economy could offer a solution to the problem of an unsustainable waste management model and strengthen London’s economy at a time of uncertainty. The report found that by adopting a circular model for its waste, London could reduce 60 per cent of its waste by 2041, put London on track to become carbon-neutral, create 12,000 new jobs by 2030 and provide £07 billion net benefit to London’s economy.

Key findings of the Report are: Our current economic model of take, make and dispose, creates millions of tonnes of waste every year. This is not sustainable from an environmental or economic perspective and must change; London should adopt the ‘circular economy model’. Not only will it reduce the amount of waste generated, minimise the depletion of natural resources and reduce our carbon emissions, it will, also, create new job opportunities and boost London’s economic activity; London is at the early stages of transitioning to a circular economy but the model has the potential to be transformative. The London Waste and Recycling Board has recently published a route map, focusing on five key business sectors, but will need Mayoral support and action to succeed. Readmore

 

ESA at the New Scientist Live Festival at London ExCeL: September 28-October 01

|| September 20: 2017 || ά. This year will, once more, see ESA astronauts and space experts touch down in London for the New Scientist Live, from September 28-October 01, which is 13 days ahead of The VI London Poetry Festival 2017: October 14-15: Saturday-Sunday at The London Notting Hill St John's Church, to which everyone is invited, as well. Well, what might poetry has to do with science, you might put. Well, there can be no science without imagination. Most of what Einstein came up with in his great work of relativity could not have been conceived, envisioned and understood, without being able to command infinite amount of imagination, for most of what, he simply could not go to a lab and just experiment with! It has taken the world about a century to find out that his gravitational waves were not just works f fantastic imagination! Therefore, poetry has much, much to share and enrich science with than what many people might think of.

Science brings about the 'black writing' on the blank and white page, that is the form, that holds the entire prospect of all that imagination is and can be. This entire space exploration and all that has been achieved and learnt through these human endeavours would not have ever happened unless human imagination had imagined it, that we find evident in every possible, current and past cultures and civilisations. Space exploration began life in imagination, where people imagined and made up realities, that one day, science will find ways to bring to reality. Science always follows imagination and that is how progress is always made.
