LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Are you tired even though you went to bed early? Do you snore? If so, you could have sleep apnea. More than 18 million Americans have been diagnosed with the condition, and many more don’t know they have it.The Diabetes ConnectionUnfortunately, for people with type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea is common.Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the body isn’t able to properly use insulin to metabolize glucose for energy production. Insulin’s primary role is to help remove glucose — or sugar — from your blood. Type 2 diabetes is the result of increasing insulin resistance, which allows sugar levels to increase, and can trigger other health problems.Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing and dangerous drops in oxygen during sleep, which can wreak havoc on managing diabetes. Insulin resistance and weight gain are a factor in both conditions, as we’ll explain.Stress and Insulin ResistanceWhile you can change some risk factors, there’s one many people aren’t even aware of: stress.Just like eating sweets and carbohydrates, constant stress can increase blood glucose levels. Stress hormones, such as epinephrine and cortisol, then kick in. Their natural function is to boost energy  when needed during a fight-or-flight response. If you’re in imminent danger, that’s good. But too much adrenaline — caused by unrelenting stress — can make fat cells resistant to insulin.How does this connect to sleep? Even though you’re not awake, sleep apnea is a form of physical stress. Untreated, it causes you to stop breathing, perhaps hundreds of times a night, sometimes for a minute or longer. This results in a lack of oxygen that takes a toll on your body.“Sleep apnea causes poor oxygenation and can lead to a buildup of carbon dioxide in the body,” says Damon Tanton, MD, an endocrinologist at Florida Hospital. “This additional stress leads to releasing stress hormones, and can lead to insulin resistance.”This resistance may progress to type 2 diabetes and other related health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.Treating sleep apnea can lead to better blood glucose control by reducing insulin resistance and improving alertness and motivation. “Correcting sleep apnea is an important step toward controlling type 2 diabetes,” says Dr. Tanton.Sleep Loss, Weight GainA 2012 study in the journal Science Translational Medicine found that sporadic and irregular sleep may also cause a decreased metabolic rate (how fast your body burns calories while resting), which could contribute to weight gain and many long-term health problems, including diabetes.“Sleep apnea is most commonly a missed diagnosis, especially in patients struggling with weight issues. Signs can be as subtle as daytime fatigue and mild snoring despite getting eight hours of sleep at nighttime,” says Gitanjali Srivastava, MD,  internist and obesity medicine specialist at Florida Hospital.Treatment, Minus the Mask“Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment,” says Jeffrey Lehman, MD, an otolaryngologist at Florida Hospital. Using mild air pressure, CPAPs keep airways open. Yet some patients grow frustrated and stop using their CPAPs, causing the apnea to return. Now there’s an alternative.TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS), a minimally invasive technique, may be an option. Using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, areas of the throat that were once difficult to reach can now be accessed. TORS provides surgeons with enhanced agility, precision and a 3-D advanced imaging system. Because the procedure is performed through the mouth, there’s no visible scar, less blood loss and a faster recovery.“Now, we’re able to remove tissue that contributes to airway blockage with no external incisions, and patients go home the next day, sleeping healthfully,” says Dr. Lehman.

Therefore, the design team has determined a clear visual for the architectural plan, which is to promote the deep vertical and horizontal connection between human and human as well as between human and nature in this house.Save this picture!© Oki HiroyukiSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Trieu ChienThe solution is to create links between the spaces so that natural elements can be inserted and carried through every corner of the living space. Without interference to the land or intention to used up areas for unnecessary rooms, we divide the house in half. The first half is devoted to the sun, wind, water and treesor simply empty spaces, the other half is presented for family activities with minimal utilities.Save this picture!© Oki HiroyukiArchitecture is a living body. As an alternative to the common approach of opening of the four sides, we create a vertical connection between the house and the sky. This approach has allowed the house to receive nature indirectly and from there we can feel the changes in weather and daylight hours. At this time, architecture is no longer dependent on the surrounding context but has created its immanent landscape.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienThe connection between humans and natures has been expressed in many ways while increasing vertical connections between usable spaces through the gaps. These gaps now become the main subject of the house, where parents and children can see each other from every corner.

Racist murder of Black teen

first_imgJames MeansJames Means — a 15-year-old unarmed Black youth — was killed by William Ronald Pulliam, a 62-year-old white man, on Nov. 22 in Charleston, W.Va. That this attack was motivated by racism is evident from Pulliam’s unapologetic statement after the shooting: “The way I look at it, that’s another piece of trash off the street.”Means belonged to a program called Dream Chasers, helping “at-risk” children develop career goals. He hoped to become a car mechanic.Pulliam claims that Means pulled a gun on him. But even the police say that was not the case. Means had no gun. Pulliam himself was barred from owning a firearm due to a prior domestic violence conviction. Pulliam felt the need to punish Means for being “guilty” of being Black. According to Teonno White, a friend of Means, Pulliam had a record of racism.A vigil at the shooting site was held Nov. 23 to honor Means’ life. Family, friends and classmates were present. Local authorities are charging Pulliam with murder, and have asked the FBI to determine if the murder was a “hate crime.”Obviously this was a crime of bigotry and racism. Again and again we hear news stories of unarmed people of color being murdered by police, police-wannabes and civilian racists. Racism is an inherent component of life in Appalachia and, broadly, the United States.The murder of James Means, a teenager, by a man nearly five decades his elder, must be seen in the context of the ongoing wave of violence against oppressed peoples that has followed the election of President-elect Donald Trump. He won West Virginia with a nearly 70 percent share of the votes cast.There is a racist war raging against Black and Brown people, North to South, East to West, both domestically and abroad. Until we can establish revolutionary socialism across the globe, we cannot expect to see an end to racist killers, employed by both the state and vigilantes, who plague our society.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


Houston lab OKs execution drug

first_imgActivists handed out fliers ‘WANTED FOR MURDER’ in front of execution drug lab in Houston, Sept. 11.Anti-death penalty activists have exposed and humiliated a Houston science lab found to have approved the purity of raw pentobarbital. Since only a small number of pharmaceutical companies are still allowing their drugs to be used to execute people, U.S. Attorney General William Barr and the U.S. Department of Justice located the pentobarbital in Houston.When Reuters News Agency asked Houston’s Eagle Analytical Services if they knew they were testing a drug that was to be used to execute people, their reply was, “No comment.” ( Sept. 11 at a busy intersection by the lab, activists held signs condemning Eagle lab for cooperating with the DOJ’s plans to bring back the federal death penalty. They handed out “Wanted for Murder” fliers to people at bus stops and to passing motorists.The group then went to the lab entrance, which is protected and surrounded by wrought iron fencing and is accessible only through electronically controlled gates. Employees came out to film the protest, and Houston cops surveilled the demonstration. One employee told the group, “Yes, I’m okay with the lab approving drugs for executions because I support the death penalty, and I am glad the federal government is executing people.” He refused to give his name.Yancy Balderas, who spoke to lab employees on a bullhorn, told Workers World, “It’s important we continue to protest and to inform people how this local lab secretly did this work for the U.S. government to kill people. We can’t leave the task of testing drugs to labs who have no oversight. The drug they approved is not only killing people but is torturing them in the process.”  As she was protesting and videoing the demonstration, activist Delia Perez-Meyer, said, “We have to organize against the death penalty at all levels, and right now particularly at the federal level because they are leading the country in executions this year. Plus, these are the same drugs that are used at the state level. The whole system of the death penalty is corrupt and needs to be totally dismantled.” Perez-Meyer has fought for decades to help her brother Louis Castro Perez, who is on Texas’ death row, prove his innocence.     Federal executions protested                                                                        The next scheduled executions by the Trump administration are of William LeCroy on Sept. 22 and Christopher Vialva on Sept. 24. Federal executions take place at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind. Five federal executions have taken place already this year, three in July and two in August.In the midst of a global pandemic, the Trump administration and the DOJ decided to start executions while lawyers are unable to meet with their clients, investigators can’t properly do their work, and witnesses to executions are unwilling to travel to Indiana to be present. These are the first federal executions in 17 years. According to the Death Penalty Information Center, “the resumption of federal executions was criticized by corrections officials, religious leaders, conservative commentators, former state and federal judges, prosecutors, law enforcement and corrections officials, and family members of homicide victims.”Protests on Sept. 22 and 24 will take place in Terre Haute, as well as cities around the country. In Houston, they will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the Mickey Leland Federal Building.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

If offence is committed, foreign national has to be tried. These are summary trials”, the SG said.In this backdrop, bench adjourned the matter to July 10 and gave liberty to the Petitioners to file their Rejoinder affidavits.On the last date, Court had adjourned the plea moved by foreign nationals, who have challenged the Centre’s order to blacklist them from travelling to India for ten years, after the parties made conflicting claims regarding serving of the petition copy.While asking the petitioners to await the Union’s response, the Bench notably asked the Centre why these foreigners were still in India if their visas had been cancelled. The Court wanted to hear from the Solicitor General, as he eventually appeared on the screen.The Bench said:-“If visas of these foreigners are cancelled, why are they still in India? You deport them. Also, tell us if there was just a general direction or individual orders sent to each one of them informing about blacklisting and cancellation of Visa.”On April 2, the Press Information Bureau (PIB) communicated the government’s decision to blacklist as many as 960 foreigners from 35 countries who were present in India. At the same time, orders were issued to Director Generals of Police (DGPs) of all States and Union Territories as well as the Commissioner of Delhi Police (CP) to register FIRs against such foreign nationals.Contending that the decision has been taken unilaterally and arbitrarily, the Petitioners urge the Top Court to declare the decision as unconstitutional and void.It is emphasised that a decision of en masse blacklisting without issuing notice or giving a chance to be heard is a blatant violation of not only principles of natural justice, but also the Right to Life under Article 21.”The impugned decision, by its very unilateral nature, infringes the principle of natural justice, particularly, audi alteram partem by blacklisting the aforementioned foreigners present in India without first granting an opportunity of being heard or notice of any form, and resultantly depriving the aggrieved foreign nationals of their right of locomotion and travelling back to the country of their citizenship.”The petitioners, all of whom have been blacklisted, submit that not only has the sudden decision led to FIRs being registered against them but has also resulted in them having to forfeit their passports to the State Administration. This, they contend, is a complete deprivation of personal liberty, without following procedure established under law.One of the petitioners, it is informed, is in the seventh month of her pregnancy. She was quarantined in March and, after being released in May, continues to be in a facility with restricted movement, which denies her the opportunity to go home and give birth in comfortable surroundings with dignity and security.The entire contention of the petitioners is that the Government “baselessly and arbitrarily passed a blanket ban on the aggrieved foreign nationals under the garb of alleged visa violations pursuant to alleged Tabligh activities, forcing such persons to remain in India under restricted movements……on a mere blanket presumption without any substantiation that they violated the conditions of their validly granted visas, under relevant sections of the Foreigners Act, 1946 and Disaster Management Act, 2005.”In furtherance of this contention, it is pointed out that the decision is based on the presumption of involvement in ‘tablighi activities’, but nowhere is it defined how these activities were prohibited or what led to the violation of conditions of validly granted visas.Referring to the “General Policy Guidelines relating to Indian Visa”, as made available by MHA, it is pointed out that there is no restriction on foreigners visiting religious places or attending normal religious activities. The petitioners also state that the Government issued a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on April 2 regarding the transit of foreign nationals stranded in India amid the COVID-19 outbreak. However, as a result of a short press release on the same day, the present petitioners could not benefit from the same.Pointing out that constitutional rights against preventive detention extend to foreign nationals as well, it is urged that Article 21 of the Constitution uses the word ‘person’ and not ‘citizen’ to protect a foreigner’s personal liberty, which includes free movement across the country.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

NC woman tried to spike fiance’s soda with eye drops, police say

first_imgRowan County Sheriff’s Office(SALISBURY, N.C.) — A woman in North Carolina looked to the movies for inspiration as she tried to poison her fiance with eye drops, authorities said. Jaymee Lynn Cruz, of Salisbury, about 40 miles northeast of Charlotte, was arrested on Saturday after her fiance noticed her putting eye drops in his soda, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.Cruz told deputies she got the idea to spike his drink from watching the movie Wedding Crashers. There’s a scene in the 2005 film where John, the character played by Owen Wilson, puts eye drops in the drink of his rival, Sack Lodge, played by Bradley Cooper. The “prank” makes him violently ill, though the intention was not death. She told deputies she only planned to make her fiance sick, as well. Upon seeing his fiancee spike his drink, he took the couple’s child and hid in the bathroom and called 911, according to authorities.The couple was arguing over the custody of their child, and she wanted to move out of the home with her daughter, deputies said. She has been charged with distributing noxious or deleterious food, a class H felony in North Carolina, and punishable by up to 25 months in jail.The eye-drop method of poisoning has been used before. Lana Clayton, a woman in South Carolina, admitted to killing her husband by putting eye drops in his drinks over the course of several days in July 2018, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with murder and granted a public defender in October, despite previously owning a million-dollar estate, and is still awaiting trial, according to the Rock Hill, South Carolina, Herald. Tetrahydrozoline, the chemical found in eye drops, constricts blood vessels and can cause difficulty breathing, slowed heartbeat and the possibility of slipping into a coma if consumed in larger-than-directed quantities.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
