Une bactérie responsable de la maladie de Parkinson

first_imgUne bactérie responsable de la maladie de ParkinsonUne étude récente menée sur des souris montre qu’Helicobacter Pylori, une bactérie de l’estomac impliquée dans la formation d’ulcères participe également au développement de la maladie de Parkinson. Les résultats de la recherche ont été présentés lors du 111e congrès de l’American Society for Microbiology.La découverte est à présent avérée. La bactérie Helicobacter Pylori responsable d’ulcères, est également impliquée dans le développement de la maladie de Parkinson. Cette pathologie neurologique chronique affecte le système nerveux central principalement chez des personnes âgées de plus de 45 ans.La corrélation entre les ulcères de l’estomac et la maladie de Parkinson est un phénomène observé depuis les années 1960. Il faut toutefois attendre près de cinquante ans pour que les chercheurs parviennent à mettre en évidence la présence plus fréquente de Helicobacter Pylori chez les patients souffrant de la maladie de Parkinson. En outre, les études statistiques menées sur ces patients suggèrent également une légère amélioration de leur état lors d’un traitement anti-bactérien. Actuellement, les recherches menées sur des souris de tout âge infectées par la bactérie ont consisté à suivre leur activité locomotrice et le taux de dopamine présent dans leur cerveau. Selon les résultats de l’étude, les souris présentent 3 à 5 mois après l’infection une baisse significative dans chacun des deux indicateurs observés. La dégradation des systèmes locomoteur et de sécrétion de dopamine correspond à des symptômes caractéristiques de la maladie de Parkinson.

Helicobacter pylori, par exemple, sécrète un composé semblable au cholestérol, mais qui s’avère être un neurotoxique responsable de la progression de la pathologie. En France, 3,4% des personnes âgées de plus de 75 ans sont touchées par la maladie de Parkinson. 10 000 nouveaux cas 3 500 décès liés à la pathologie sont déclarés chaque année.Le 23 mai 2011 à 18:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more


For former Larch resident a new start – and a new cat

first_imgYACOLT — After 26 months, Craig Bigler is a free man again.“When I was younger and I got released from prison, it was like, party time, go wild,” Bigler said. “Now that I’m 50, it’s nice to have your freedom. I’m just going to take it slow, and just enjoy the day.”On a gray Thursday morning, Bigler walked out of Larch Corrections Center with his belongings — a TV, hygiene products, court papers — as well as Cheetos, his newly-adopted orange cat.Bigler and Cheetos were brought together by the Larch Pet Training Camp (LPTC), a collaborative program between the corrections center and the Humane Society for Southwest Washington. It’s a program that has helped hundreds of cats and residents at Larch since it began in 2012.“It gives (cats) an opportunity to reset and rewind and be able to cope, to where we can really evaluate how they are behaviorally,” said Angela Rowland, feline supervisor at the Humane Society.Rowland added that cats tend to “shut down in high-stress situations,” such as when they first arrive at a shelter. The stress of being in a shelter may make cats unadoptable until they learn to cope with the stress. Cheetos, for example — then named Galileo — was nearly feral when he first arrived at the Humane Society, and in no condition to be adopted.last_img read more

IS claims UK concert attack

first_imgThe Union Jack flies at half-mast above the British Embassy in Paris on 23 May, 2017, as a mark of respect to those killed and injured in the terror attack at the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena in Manchester on 22 May. Photo: AFP The Islamic State group claimed responsibility Tuesday for a suicide bombing at a packed Manchester pop concert, killing at least 22 people including an eight-year-old girl in Britain’s deadliest terror attack for more than a decade.Prime Minister Theresa May said the police knew the identity of the bomber, who died in the blast late Monday, saying he intended to cause “maximum carnage”.She said he is believed to have acted alone, but police arrested a 23-year-old man on Tuesday morning in connection with the attack, which occurred just over two weeks before Britain holds a general election.“One of the caliphate’s soldiers placed bombs among the crowds,” the IS group said in a statement published on its social media channels, and threatened more attacks.Screaming fans, many of them teenagers, fled the venue in panic after the explosion at the end of the concert by US star Ariana Grande in the 21,000-capacity Manchester Arena, in northwestern England.“A single terrorist detonated his improvised explosive device near one of the exits of the venue, deliberately choosing the time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately,” May said after an emergency ministerial meeting.Eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos and a teenager, Georgina Callander, were among the first of the 22 victims to be confirmed.Another 59 people were wounded, many with life-threatening conditions.“We know that among those killed and injured were many children and young people,” the prime minister added.Police said the blast occurred in the foyer of the indoor arena, a covered area which links the auditorium to Victoria Station, a train and tram hub.Witnesses reported seeing bodies on the floor after the blast around 10:30pm (2130 GMT) on Monday, and some fans were trampled as panicked crowds tried to flee the venue.“There were fathers carrying their little girls in tears. People were pushing down the stairs. It was just… chaos,” Sebastian Diaz, a 19-year-old from Newcastle, told AFP.Families were separated, with dozens of young people taken to nearby hotels overnight, and some parents were still desperately searching for their children on Tuesday.“I’m just hearing nothing—her phone’s dead,” Charlotte Campbell, whose 15-year-old daughter Olivia was at the concert, told BBC radio.The attack was the deadliest in Britain since July 7, 2005 when four suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda attacked London’s transport system during rush hour, killing 52 people and wounding 700 more.It revived memories of the November 2015 attack at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris in which armed men wearing explosive belts stormed in and killed 90 people. That attack was also claimed by IS.Grande, who is popular with teens and pre-teens, expressed her anguish following the Manchester attack.“Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so, so sorry. I don’t have words,” the 23-year-old wrote on Twitter.‘Evil losers’ -May said it was “a callous terrorist attack”, conducted with “appalling, sickening cowardice” and Queen Elizabeth condemned it as an “act of barbarity”.Britain’s national terror threat level has been “severe”, meaning an attack is highly likely, since August 2014, and May said this would remain unchanged, but under review.In an unusual response, the head of the MI5 domestic Intelligence agency, Andrew Parker, said his teams had been working through the night.“We remain relentlessly focused, in numerous current operations, on doing all we can to combat the scourge of terrorism and keep the country safe,” he said.Campaigning for the June 8 general election, which May called last month to strengthen her hand in forthcoming Brexit negotiations with the European Union, has been suspended.US President Donald Trump led condolences from political leaders across the globe, as well as stars from the world of music and football such as former Manchester United player David Beckham.“So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers,” Trump said during a visit to Bethlehem.US singer Taylor Swift, a friend of Grande, wrote: “My thoughts, prayers and tears for all those affected by the Manchester tragedy tonight.”Footballers ‘deeply shocked’ -“A lot of these people at the concert were small children and teenagers like my daughter,” witness Stephanie Hill told AFP.“These were Christmas presents for the majority of people. What should have been a happy occasion has ended like this, it is just tragic.”In a city famed globally for its musical traditions and football teams, showbusiness stars and teams joined in to express their shock at the carnage.“We are deeply shocked by last night’s terrible events at the Manchester Arena,” said Manchester United, whose manager Jose Mourinho said the victims were in the club’s “minds and hearts.”A support centre for people caught up in the attack was set up at Etihad Stadium, the home of Manchester City, which is next door to the venue.City captain Vincent Kompany offered his condolences on Twitter, saying: “It’s a sad day for the great city of Manchester. #Unity”.May headed to Manchester to meet police and emergency services.She hailed the city’s response to the attack, which saw residents opened their doors to stranded concert-goers after trains were cancelled.Britain’s third biggest city was hit in 1996 by a massive car bomb planted at a shopping centre by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) which wounded more than 200 people.last_img read more

Poland undertakes initiatives to consolidate relations with India

first_imgThe Poland government has expressed interest in more Indian investments, manifested in the ‘Go to India’ campaign, launched to attract greater Indian businesses into Poland. This was informed by Jerzy Witold Pietrewicz, State Minister for Economy, Poland in a B2B event organised by All India Association of Industries in Mumbai.A 20 member business delegation led by the Minister Pietrewicz, along with Tomasz Lukaszuk, Ambassador of the Republic of Poland in India and Krzysztof Grabczuk, Deputy Marshall of Lubelskie Province, discussed investment opportunities in either countries. “We have launched ‘Go to India’ programme to support the entrepreneurs and establish our presence here. The aim is to encourage mutual trade and investments,” said Pietrewicz. The Minister Pietrewicz explained that the current economic and political environment in Poland is conducive to foreign investments.“As per the latest World Bank report, Poland is on number 32 for ease of doing business,” the Minister informed the business community. He added, “Our government has reduced clearances and brought down the time of giving clearances to only 24 hours.” The Minister also said investors need to explore new areas of trade. Poland has engineering, nuclear, medicine, defence and other areas.Grabnczuk said that their country believed in transfer of technology and knowledge to India. Likewise new regions need to be explored by investors in both Poland and India.Poland also has plans to form direct air connectivity to India in the next two years. Lukaszuk said, “We plan to have direct flights between the two countries, which will boost tourism between both the nations…Most of the Polish tourists visit Delhi, Kerala, Goa and Jaipur. Ayurveda and Yoga are very popular among them. There is great potential of tourism exchange between Poland and India.”The towns mostly visited by Indian tourists are Zamosc – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Kazimierz Dolny. The Embassy of India in Warsaw issues 20,000 visas for Indian tourists annually.last_img read more


Disparate Mortgage Tech LOS Platforms Hold Lenders Back

first_img Share The emergence of the Loan Origination System (LOS) as a stand-alone product has led to “technology sprawl,” wherein mortgage tech platforms are disparate, disconnected, and overall less effective, according to a white paper released by MortgageFlex Systems, on Thursday. Consolidating these disparate techs into one, singular LOS is key to moving the industry forward.According to the paper, titled “Reducing the Sprawl in Mortgage Lending,” the mortgage industry is plagued by disconnected technology that slows the process down—and cuts into the bottom line.“The more platforms the lender uses, the lower the overall efficiency of the enterprise will be,” the paper reported. “The results of using multiple loan origination systems are management confusion, reduced efficiency, missed lending opportunities, and higher expenses. In the past, these disadvantages were built-in obstacles on the playing field because the loan origination systems available to lenders could not process all types of loan products. Even if they could, they could not service those loans.”Using multiple LOS platforms can also pose a problem when cross-selling products.The paper stated: “Using multiple LOSs is a severe impediment to loan product cross-sell. Even if you can get the various departments to work together, which historically has been a problem, spotting loan opportunities when the data resides in different databases is incredibly difficult and inefficient. The result is lost sales opportunities and lower revenues.”Ultimately, lenders should move toward a single, more comprehensive LOS—rather than a number of overlapping platforms.“Relying on one LOS means the lender has better information on every borrower it serves, allowing them to prospect at will and promoting organic growth,” the paper reported. “When a cross-sell opportunity is discovered, the loan can be processed more efficiently because the borrower’s information is already in the database and ready to be used on the new application. It also provides the intangible but very real benefit of giving bank customers the feeling that their financial institution actually knows them.A single LOS can also reduce maintenance and training costs, allowing organizations to develop “experts who can pass on their knowledge more easily and managers who understand all the technology the firm employs.”So what should that singular LOS look like? The paper proposes this: “A single LOS should originate all types of loans, including mortgages, HELOCS, consumer, 203Ks, USDA, 203Bs, construction, bridge, and manufactured housing loans. It should also provide immediate access to existing borrower information, eliminating time-consuming data re-entry and making it easy to find cross-sell opportunities. Integrated portals should give remote access to all originators.” HOUSING LOS mortgage mortgage tech Mortgage Technology MortgageFlex White Paper 2017-06-08 Aly J.

BSP Group Extends Sponsorship Of FHRI

Go back to the enewsletter On Tuesday 22 Septe

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >On Tuesday, 22 September LATTE attended an event hosted by Voyages at the Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour to celebrate the announcement of a major cultural event to take place at the Ayers Rock Resort in 2016/17.An art installation of enormous scale by artist Bruce Munro, entitled Field of Light, will see 50,000 solar-powered stems of light illuminating the landscape of Australia’s spiritual heart. Each stem is topped with a frosted coloured sphere that will light pathways for guests to interact with the installation.“Field of Light was one idea that landed in my sketchbook and kept on nagging at me to be done,” said Munro. “I saw in my mind a landscape of illuminated stems that, like the dormant seed in a dry desert, quietly wait until darkness falls, under a blazing blanket of southern stars, to bloom with gentle rhythms of light,” he said. “Field of Light is a personal symbol for the good things in life.”The initial idea for Field of Light was conceived by Munro in 1992 while visiting Uluru. Since then it has travelled to the United Kingdom, the United States and Mexico before making its return to its conceptual birthplace.“There is no doubt that this presents an absolutely unique opportunity for guests to enjoy not only the spiritual nature of the destination, but experience it in a unique and mesmerising way,” said Voyages’ Executive General Manager Sales, Marketing and Distribution, Ray Stone.Tourism Australia Managing Director, John O’Sullivan, said hosting an exhibition of this type would reinforce the accessibility of Australia’s Indigenous offering and highlight the breadth of uniquely Australian events available to visitors.“One of our biggest challenges faced in marketing Australia overseas is creating that sense of urgency to travel and then finding ways to encourage those visitors to disperse beyond our capital city gateways. With this event, I think the Voyages team have found a way to do both. This is an exhibition of true international significance and provides that all important ‘new news’ for visitors to put Uluru on their ‘must do’ list,” he said.Guests at Ayers Rock Resort’s 5 properties will be invited to interact with Munro’s monumental experiential artwork in one of 3 ways:The entry-level Field of Light Pass ($35) includes return bus transfers to the remote site and time to experience the artworkThe Field of Light Star Pass ($75) includes the above, along with sparkling wine and canapés at an elevated viewing area at the end of the eveningThe 4.5-hour A Night at Field of Light ($235) includes an introduction to the artwork by a host, sparkling wine and canapés at sunset from an elevated viewing area, extended time to immerse in the installation and a 3-course buffet dinner showcasing bush tucker ingredients as well as return bus transfers. There is also an option to arrive by camel or helicopter for this experience.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more


Go back to the enewsletter Miami Beach has literal

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterMiami Beach has literally hundreds of hotels, some as unique as the book-filled Betsy, or the decidedly lavish Casa Casuarina, formerly the home of Giovanni Versace. Here are two others that I have really loved in the past month.The SetaiThe Setai, Miami Beach is actually a sibling to Casa Casuarina. Both are now owned by the Nakash family who – as well as dominating the American luxury blue jeans market – also happen to have the rights to the Setai name for USA and Israel.I stayed in the new Tower, built between the original 1930s Art Deco hotel and the beach; the view out over the Atlantic was breathtaking. Choose a Tower Suite for even more space, and the light and fresh air that comes with being able to open sliding glass doors onto your private terrace.The Setai, Miami BeachThis hotel is increasingly a gathering place for top people, with many interests. Those who like lounging near the water can lie on the sandy beach, or next to one of the hotel’s three parallel outdoor pools. Those who like shopping now find a selection of 10 superb boutiques in the hotel, including Edoardo Borrelli bespoke tailoring, as in nearby Coral Gables; and Orlebar Brown swimwear from London, where you can have your own house or garden printed on your swim shorts.And then, not surprisingly, The Setai is a centre for food. Some undoubtedly come here just for the Peking duck made by duck master Chow Kam, who has been roasting these beauties for over 10 years.Jaya Brunch | Chef VijayJaya is interesting in that its name implies Asia, but it is truly international, with an indoor/outdoor setting. At breakfast its buffet is one of the world’s best: I have never before seen both guacamole and a bowl of perfectly ripe avocados that can be prepared to order (I had sliced avocado with a superb omelette).Other outstanding dishes appeared at dinner. Yes, I do recommend Chow Kam’s light-as-a-feather Peking duck, but also the scallop and shrimp dim sum covered in truffle-cream foam and slices of black truffle, made all the more enjoyable by a glass of American pinot noir: The Four Graces, Willamette Valley 2017.Jaya | Thai CervicheThere are other draws that make The Setai, Miami Beach a magnet for connoisseurs: it is a main sponsor of the annual Art Basel Miami Beach, which this year saw a pop-up of Alec Monopoly cartoon sculptures in one of the hotel boutiques. But its art connection runs year-round. Right now, there are still 1.5-metre-high collage portraits of, say, Kate Moss, all done by Chuck Close, a New York-born artist who spends much of the year here at The Setai.One reason why this hotel is so successful is that the owners are prepared to invest: a pull-back awning that covers the property’s main water-lined courtyard apparently cost US$2 million, but what an effect. The courtyard, which has peripheral and in-water seating, can now be used year-round.The Setai, Miami Beach | CourtyardThe ConfidanteThe Setai, Miami Beach, is at Collins and 20th Street. Head further up to 40th Street on Collins and you come to The Confidante, an Unbound hotel (part of Hyatt, which also owns the complex). This large Art Deco hotel is something of a conundrum and its signature is the team: they are superb. Anyone will do anything at this 354-room hotel. The GM was sadly away, but his deputy, Matthew Brink, relayed how that very day he had bussed tables and help strip beds. No wonder there is repeat business, especially for ‘snow birds’ escaping the winter weather up north; this is exactly the kind of friendly (and family-friendly) luxury hotel that they revel in.Image Courtesy of The Confidante Miami BeachAs soon as I had checked in, I had a small issue that needed a spot of dry-cleaning – no problem. Within five minutes, I had four managers squeezed into my not-exactly-spacious room, but they took the garment, a Nicaraguan promised to dry-clean it personally and it came back good as new.There are actually two adjacent pools, one adults-only. Two simple signs on a towel cart as you go into the pool area tells you, immediately, which pool is which. Brilliant. I went through the whole area to the public boardwalk that runs from 5th Street up to 46th Street and I could have run, jogged or walked the full 6.4 kilometres of boardwalk. As I went I looked through the dunes to the beach, dotted with lifeguard huts.King Bedroom Oceanfront Balcony | Image Courtesy of The Confidante Miami BeachUsing my pressure-pad room key to return from the boardwalk, I looked up at the hotel. It was originally three buildings, dating back to the 1930s. One tower is still topped by a radio mast, once used to talk to the airport, which apparently would radio the hotel that VIP guests were on their way.The hotel has variously been called The Lord Tarleton, The Crown Hotel and then, after a spell as apartments, it re-opened as Thompson Miami Beach before being bought, and re-flagged, by Hyatt in 2016.
