People with diabetes have a somewhat increased risk of colon cancer, an international study said — but the reasons for the connection, and what should be done about it, remain unclear.

Researchers headed by Hiroki Yuhara, at the University of California, Berkeley, combined the results of 14 international studies and found that, overall, people with diabetes were 38 percent more likely to be diagnosed with colon cancer than those who were diabetes-free.

News as collaborative intelligence: Correcting the myths about news in the digital age

Tom Rosenstiel | brookings.edu

The state of news in America is a paradox.

Some dimensions of what citizens can learn about civic affairs and the world around them are clearly better. Technology has brought news tools that make storytelling far richer than we could have imagined a generation ago. Computers are connecting citizens, increasing engagement, adding more perspectives, more witnesses and a wider spectrum of voices to the news. By any number of measures, the demand for news is growing. And after a decade of worries that digital screens were shortening attention spans and destroying the demand for long-form journalism and a deeper understanding of public affairs, the data are now unmistakable that people do consume long form on screen (and that’s because of rather than despite the smaller screens of tablets and smart phones).

Wheat Contains Not One, But 23K Potentially Harmful Proteins

Most folks don’t realize that when we are talking about health problems associated with wheat, or gluten, we are not talking about a monolithic entity, a singular “bad guy,” solely responsible for the havoc commonly experienced as a consequence of consuming this grain. After all, how could just one villain cause the 200+ different clinically observed adverse health effects now linked in the biomedical literature to wheat consumption?

Did this grandfather, 78, really beat ‘incurable’ cancer just by changing his diet? Extraordinary story of the man who got ‘all-clear’ after swapping red meat and dairy products for 10 fruit and veg a day

A grandfather, who was told by doctors that his cancer was ‘incurable’, has been given the all-clear less than four months later – after trying a different diet.

Allan Taylor could have been forgiven for fearing the worst when doctors told him they could do nothing to treat his condition.

But the 78-year-old would not give up, and instead searched the internet for an alternative method to fight his cancer.

They were told to expect a kiss from a ‘special someone’.

But the joke was on teenagers at Rosemount High School when the mystery lip locks they suspected came from their classmates… were actually from their parents.

Now that footage of the cringe-worthy pep rally prank has gone viral, John Wollersheim says as the school principal he owes an apology to everyone who was offended by the incestual display.

At Stanford University, Ban offers direction on navigating a world in transition

UN.org

The world is undergoing big changes in the economic, development and political spheres, Secretary-GeneralBan Ki-moon said today in a lecture at Stanford University, highlighting three essential ways to navigate through this “Great Transition.”

“Throughout the ages, people have said that the world is in the midst of big change. But the level and degree of global change that we face today is far more profound than at any other period in my adult lifetime. I call this period the Great Transition,” Mr. Ban told the audience in Palo Alto, California.

In his speech, entitled ‘The United Nations in a World in Transition,’ the Secretary-General noted that the transition is economic, as engines of growth and economic power continue to shift with the rise of the Asia-Pacific region.

The transition is developmental, as the world seeks a more sustainable path for people and the planet. The transition is also political as landmark change in the Arab world and beyond brings new hope to places that have long been deserts of democracy.

Climate change: the Hoax that Costs Us $4 Billion a Day

James Delingpole | breitbart.com

The global climate change industry is worth an annual $1.5 trillion, according to Climate Change Business Journal. That’s the equivalent of $4 billion a day spent on vital stuff like carbon trading, biofuels, and wind turbines. Or — as Jo Nova notes — it’s the same amount the world spends every year on online shopping.

But there’s a subtle difference between these two industries — the global warming one and the online shopping one. Can you guess what it is?

Flu shot linked to higher incidence of flu in pandemic year

The Canadian Press

A strange vaccine-related phenomenon spotted at the start of the 2009 flu pandemic may well have been real, a new study suggests.

Canadian researchers noticed in the early weeks of the pandemic that people who got a flu shot for the 2008-2009 winter seemed to be more likely to get infected with the pandemic virus than people who hadn’t received a flu shot.

Five studies done in several provinces showed the same puzzling and unsettling results. But initially, research outside Canada did not, and the effect was dismissed as “the Canadian problem.”

Obesity Industrial Complex

RT America

As the debate over cutting government spending rages on, billions of dollars of taxpayer money are wasted each year on junk food. Between 1995 and 2010, over 250 billion dollars was spent on subsidizing foods that are making Americans fat. The health effects are devastating. 75 percent of Americans are now considered overweight. One in five kids in the U.S. are obese. RT’s Liz Wahl takes a look at why some politicians feed into the Obesity Industrial Complex.

Science decodes ‘internal voices’

Source: BBC News

Researchers have demonstrated a striking method to reconstruct words, based on the brain waves of patients thinking of those words.

The technique reported in PLoS Biology relies on gathering electrical signals directly from patients’ brains.

Based on signals from listening patients, a computer model was used to reconstruct the sounds of words that patients were thinking of.

The method may in future help comatose and locked-in patients communicate.

Future of Europe Group plans closer EU integration

Originally posted 2012-09-19 10:30:50. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

BBC News

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle headed the “Future of Europe Group”, which met in Poland’s capital Warsaw on Monday.

The group, which does not include the UK, says the eurozone crisis has caused a “crisis of confidence” in the EU.

It says the European Commission – the EU’s executive arm – must be stronger and its head could be directly elected.

The Commission has already acquired more powers of oversight in the crisis, scrutinising national budgets to ensure compliance with EU targets. The new controls are considered necessary to prevent any reckless accumulation of debt in future.
