The EU ambassadors warn that Venezuela can not fight Zika

The ambassadors of the countries of the European Union in Caracas, including Spanish, have signed a report claiming that Venezuela is experiencing a "critical" situation in its health sector and is not prepared to deal with an epidemic virus Zika scale, published ABC Spain. The report, which begins by noting that Venezuela walks to the deeper political, economic, social and security crises in recent history, stops to analyze the health situation and highlights the "serious shortage of medicines and medical supplies" and the deterioration of infrastructure.

The EU ambassadors warn that Venezuela can not fight Zika

Specifically, it refers to the lack of basic medicines in many pharmacies and notes that this is favoring the importation of counterfeit or expired medicines, representing an added health hazard. In this context, the report drawn up following meetings with experts from NGOs Codevida, Solidarity and Provide, stops in danger of extension of Zika virus in Venezuela, which he says is especially concerned to neighboring countries such as Brazil and Colombia.

Difficult detection
The diplomats added that in the current context, it is difficult to make clear estimates on the number of affected by the virus in the country and said that although health authorities allowed 4,000 cases recognized by the national laboratory responsible for the detection, there keep in mind that because of the shortage of reagents, the working capacity of the center is very limited. Epidemiologists and NGOs estimate there could be some cases of Zika 400.00 in Venezuela.

The statement said later that while the Venezuelan National Assembly, controlled by the opposition parties said the situation "humanitarian health crisis", the Government of Nicolas Maduro, remains in a "state of non-recognition" of that crisis and ensures that everything goes well the health sector. The ambassadors believe to admit otherwise would be to accept that the Bolivarian revolution is failing.

On day 18, one of his speech, Maduro referred to Zika and said that within 72 hours, had been importing medicines against the virus "for all", which has been challenged by opponents who consider that is not true for the 400,000 cases estimated to exist, but, at most, for officially recognized by the government. Recently, l to health minister even admitted 4,700 and Maduro himself said that he had "5,221 cases suspects, of whom 68 people have complications and are in intensive care." By not admitting the existence of an epidemic, the Bolivarian authorities have deployed prevention campaigns or information about the disease and, although perform some spraying to eliminate the mosquito vector and other Zika desease are few and erratic.

Propaganda accusations
On the contrary, as he often does, Maduro's government insists that the allegations about the existence of epidemics and health crises are part of unconventional warfare propaganda domestic and international counter. The European ambassadors report shows that some elements make it harder to combat the plight of healthcare in Venezuela. Among them, he cites the fragmentation of the public health system, with no central authority at national level, which also complicates the distribution of medicines.

Also it highlights the fact that at least 6,700 doctors from different specialties (20 percent of the public health system), have left the country, while there is a shortage of nurses 60 percent. In view of these shortcomings, the report proposes that deemed possibility of providing assistance to Venezuela, among other things, sending and distribution within the country of medical supplies and medicines.

Nobody wants this job for 360,000 euros a year and three months off

It's funny, but it is assumed that in a context of economic crisis affecting many areas of the globe, gainfully employed 360,000 euros per year should be many claimants. They owed raffle. But it's not like that. A small town in New Zealand is looking for a GP pair its rural clinic, but no one, it seems, is willing to take the plunge, despite the three-month vacation offered as a complement

Tokoroa, New Zealand
A doctor Alan Kenny, 61, is heading up a small clinic in Tokoroa, a village in the region of Waikato in New Zealand. His problem is that is overworked and can not take all along his own. It can not cope with the number of patients who come to visit every day, with an average of 43 visits per day. So he has decided to seek a young doctor family to divide patients. Problem? Amazed that nobody is wants the job offer.

Dr. Kenny went to four companies specializing in recruiting doctors But in two years they have been unable to find a suitable candidate. And that the offer is unbeatable: 360,000 euros per year, three-month holidays paid, free weekends and not have to work at night time. And nothing. In four months not a single request for the post.

But let's see: Is that money a lot in context of New Zealand? More than twice the average for the country. So what's the problem? It's a rural place and seems to lose its appeal. "Auckland has the largest medical school and most of the young people who go to medical school come from wealthy families in the area. If these universities recruit more students from rural areas would not exist this problem, " said Dr. Kenny the NZ Herald. What young Spanish doctors say? Surely no one is encouraged to take the plunge.

The border between Colombia and Venezuela has become a new focus of zika

Health officials say the virus is spreading rapidly zika through Colombia and Venezuela, noting that the porous border between the two countries could become after Brazil in the next focus of the epidemic of the mosquito-borne virus, publishes The Wall Street Journal. Infectious disease specialists say there are at least tens of thousands of cases in both countries, which together have a population of 80 million. The border of 2,300 kilometers long has been of special concern to health officials, who say the virus has an acute presence in the border city of Cucuta, Colombia, and is expanding northward through a series of villages and cities deployed in hot, swampy pastoral areas to Maracaibo, Venezuela's second city, close to the Caribbean coast.

The border between Colombia and Venezuela has become a new focus of zika

On arrival the virus at this city, which usually produces mild symptoms but may be related to a rare neurological disorder in babies born with smaller heads than normal, is scaring people the same way as in Brazil, where up 1.5 million people could be infected. Last Friday, sitting in the waiting room of a clinic in San Josecito on the Venezuelan side of the border, Dairy Varela, 19, described her symptoms as chills and aches. She said doctors did not know they had, because they lack supplies for clinical trials, but their symptoms are hallmarks of zika.

"Now my skin feels terrible, is itching, and an outbreak is coming in my arms and my face, see?" She said, pointing to a pink spot on her face. "I am very worried [seeing] how it goes on TV babies with small brains."

Colombian health authorities have confirmed more than 20,000 cases of Zika, but estimate that amount to 100,000 cases because they believe many people infected with the virus have not been diagnosed. Extrapolating current rates, they estimate the number of people infected will grow to at least 700,000 by the end of the year. By then, authorities estimate, Colombia will have 500 cases of microcephaly, a condition in which babies are born with skulls and brains undersized, and 700 with Guillain-Barre syndrome, which can cause paralysis and death. Colombia reported three deaths caused by Guillain-Barre syndrome associated with zika last week. Compounding the anxiety is the collapse of the health system in Venezuela, beset by a lack of drugs and supplies in the midst of economic crisis. Venezuela stopped publishing weekly statistics on infectious diseases in 2014, so the health authorities of Colombia can only speculate on how severe the epidemic a few kilometers across the border.

"Mosquitoes do not respect the international borders," said Fernando Ruiz last week, Deputy Minister of Health of Colombia, during his visit to the worst affected areas along the border. "We are concerned about what is happening in Venezuela, because Venezuela has not made any epidemiological report".

Last month, the health minister of this country said authorities had identified 4,700 cases of Zika, a figure that has been criticized by associations of doctors and infectious disease specialists both in Venezuela and abroad. They say the real figure could be tens of thousands.

"What we are seeing now is the tip of the iceberg," said Barbossa Nellis, chief epidemiologist of Zulia, Venezuela border state, whose capital is Maracaibo. "We have an epidemic now." Calls seeking comment the Health Ministry were not returned.

Visits a slum and Maracaibo hospital and poor along the northwestern border with Colombia Venezuela communities left an impression that the zika is spreading uncontrollably. Venezuela lacks even aspirin and insect repellents, which doctors say they are among the first lines of defense against viruses such as zika.

Zulia has registered 463 cases of Zika, Barbossa said, but the specialist estimated that probably one in five of the 3.5 million inhabitants of the state could become infected. Mosquitoes are breeding in the trash in the streets and in home water tanks not only in overcrowded neighborhoods but also in the University Hospital of the state, where there was no water service, forcing workers to collect water buckets. The story of a man who died of Guillain-Barre syndrome possibly related to Zika, highlights the obstacles facing physicians in Venezuela.

Jorge La Cruz, 51, developed rashes in December. When his tongue and his arms went numb, he was diagnosed at the University Hospital with Guillain-Barre syndrome, according to documents seen The Wall Street Journal. Doctors told the family he needed immunoglobulin, but the hospital did not have any blisters and the family could not afford the $ 150 it cost on the black market. "I offered my house in exchange for medicine, but only wanted cash," said Bercelys Pelufo, wife of the deceased. As the paralysis-the horrible effect of Guillain-Barre-xpanded her body, De La Cruz needed to be on a ventilator. But the machine did not work, and the man died.

Nearby, the people of San Francisco, the working class district of Maracaibo, are concerned about how they or their children may be affected. Duana Rodriguez, a pregnant woman was recently with her four children standing beside a stream that smelled of sewage. Mosquitoes swarmed through human waste.

"I am very worried about the baby," She said. "The government has done nothing about the zika."

In Colombia, the Aedes mosquito carrying the Zika the multiplies rapidly. Residents of the town of El Zulia say they are constantly surrounded by swarms of what they call "vampire mosquitoes."

"Almost everyone has had zika here," said Piedad Uribe, manager at a small hospital in El Zulia.

Aleyda Zabaleta, a doctor of the hospital, duly recorded every possible case of Zika, dispenses paracetamol and ibuprofen for pain and stinging rashes antihistamines for the virus. Pregnant women are sent to a larger hospital in Cucuta.

Each morning the doctor Zabaleta manages a team that is headed in the only hospital ambulance to small nearby communities to treat people possibly infected with viruses and advise zika get rid of standing water where mosquitoes breed. "They have to know that the point of origin is often found in mosquitoes that breed in their homes," She said.

Placing these stalls near Mong Kok is common throughout the year, especially in the framework of the celebrations of the New Year, but the authorities have decided to act on this occasion. In this regard, the leader of the movement Youngspiration, Baggio Leung, has argued that went along with ten other members of the party to protest in defense of the local culture, as reported by the British broadcaster BBC. The prime minister of Hong Kong, CY Leung, has condemned the incident, stressed that the country "can not tolerate this," and ensuring that "Police will spare no effort to stop the rioters."

The claim for the wedding, according to the boy's family, it was a child's grandfather's request. "He asked you to marry before he died. He chose Helen because he loves her. In doing so, did the ancestors happy. If we had not done the wedding, something bad would have happened in the family, "said the mother of Sanele, Patience Masilela, 46.

For families, the event was more a ritual, since there was no marriage certificate, and the two do not live together. But the couple came to exchange rings and kiss. And they spent a lot of money on the ceremony, because they believed that was what the ancestors wanted.

Man dies after struck by meteorite

For the first time in modern history, a man was killed by a meteorite. The case has happened in India, according to The Wall Street Journal on Saturday. One man died and three people were injured when an unidentified object fell from the sky, leaving a crater 30 feet deep, on the campus of the University of Bharathidasan Engineering, Vellore in Tamil Nadu. According to the director of the university, G. Baskar, the object fell on Saturday afternoon near the cafeteria, causing "a noise like that of a big explosion." "It was an unusual sound that could be heard three kilometers away," continued the director. The windows of the classrooms and the parked cars were broken and the students were immediately sent to the home. Classes are suspended until Wednesday.

Man dies after struck by meteorite

The fatality victim, Kamaraj, was the conductor of the university bus and suffered serious injuries meet the floor near the location where the meteorite fell, when he saw the incident. The other three injured are two gardeners and a student. A confirmation of the rare incident was given by the governor of the state of Tamil Nadul, Jayalalithaa said in a statement Sunday. According to The Wall Street Journal , the statement did not explain the reasons that led the authorities to say that the crater resulted from the fall of a meteorite. Jayalalithaa also said it would give 25,000 rupees, the equivalent of 333 euros to each of the three wounded, and 100,000 rupees, equivalent to 1330 euros, the family of the driver who died.

A meteorite is a piece of an asteroid or comet that can pass through the atmosphere surrounding the earth and fall on the surface of the planet, as explained by the NASA site. The probability of being killed by a meteorite is very low. According to NASA, there are records of deaths caused by meteorites falling on Earth in the last 1,000 years.

Sunjan Sengupta, Professor of Astrophysics Institute of India, explained that "if a large asteroid enters the Earth's atmosphere, it will disintegrate and go in different directions and like most of the earth's surface is covered by water, will probably fall into the ocean ".

10 disturbing facts about the meat that will make you think twice to eat

The american children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents, according to researchers in the heralded documentary Forks over Knives. Available on Netflix about the film has prompted several people to reduce or stop eating meat. While waiting to watch it, here are 10 facts that will make you may review your diet.

10 disturbing facts about the meat that will make you think twice to eat

1. Meat consumption is closely linked to cancers and cardiovascular diseases.
Dr. T. Colin Campbell, one of the greatest scientists specialized in epidemiology, led the "most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing a disease," reports the New York Times. His comments made ​​in China for years have confirmed that a carnivorous diet increases the risk of suffering from cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer and autoimmune diseases.

2. Superbugs more present than ever in meat
A recent study published by the Food and Drug Administration found that 81% ground turkey market was contaminated with superbugs, are those resistant to antibiotics. These bacteria were found in 69% of pork chops, 55% ground beef and 39% chicken. A germ called Enterococcus faecalis, normally found in the intestines of humans and animals, was also found in a wide variety of meats, meaning it has already been in contact with faeces. 

3. Some diseases could be reversed by adopting a vegan diet
A study has shown that a diet based on plants and low in fat can positively influence recovery of people with breast, colon, prostate and skin. Some individuals have indeed managed to cure their disease by eliminating meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy products and vegetable oils from their plate.

The American Cancer Society  released its recommendations for the diet to follow for people affected by a tumor in February. The report states that the survivors should focus on food herbal, rich in fruits, vegetables and unrefined grains and stay away from meat, processed foods, refined grains and sugar. This shift in thinking about the importance of food is particularly interesting, since  the most recent statistics (2015) of American society show little improvement in survival rates for patients who struggle against their disease with traditional medicine over the last 40 years.

4. The antibiotics used in animal husbandry
On average each year, 62 million antibiotics are sold for livestock health, against 16 million for human consumption, according to the Pew Charitable Trusts. The veterinarian and director of the Pew Campaign, dedicated to animal health and industrial agriculture considers that the use of antibiotics in animals is out of control. It deplores the fact that among other things we use antibiotics in animals when they are not sick just to make them grow and to compensate for poor hygienic conditions in which they live.

5. The US government is behind several campaigns encouraging the consumption of meat and dairy products.
Our neighbors to the south are bombarded with advertising messages promoting a diet rich in meat, although the Americans already eat more than the amount of animal protein per person recommended by age. These ads would yield  billions of dollars  more to companies supported by the government.

The US government spends $38 billion annually to subsidize the industry of meat and dairy products, and only 0.04% of this amount ($ 17 million) for trade in fruits and vegetables.

6. Toxic cleaning products and chlorinated water
School boards and parents were misinformed for years on cleaning products used in the washing of meat served in school cafeterias around the world. Those machines that grind meat and slurried, separate fat and treating with ammonia or citric acid to remove the bacteria. The meat is then finely ground, pressed into blocks and frozen for industrial use. Others use of chlorinated water in the washing and processing of the red meat, poultry and fish.

7. The meat industry is responsible for climate change
The livestock sector now exceeds the transportation industry and the power generation as the largest source of emissions of greenhouse gases. The 5th IPCC report  recommends a significant reduction in meat consumption, which would be as effective as halving the global fleet.

Livestock also increases deforestation. Greenpeace conducted a survey three years that proved that the cattle was responsible for 80% of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. 

8. Livestock eat better than many people worldwide
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimated in 2014 in  805 million  the number of undernourished people in the world. Yet two-thirds of the world's agricultural land is devoted to livestock and feed production for livestock. Ironically, nearly 85% of global soybean production, a highly nutritious foodstuff rich in protein, is intended to feed the animals to be slaughtered.

9. Excessive presence of hormones in meat
In Canada,  natural and synthetic hormones are used in the intensive production of beef and pork  as growth promoters and regulators of reproduction. US beef is also very heavy in hormones, so heavy that the European Union has said she did not want it. According to the European Commission's health and consumer protection, animal hormones significantly increase the risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer. Cancer rates in countries that do not consume would be lower as countries supplying US beef. 

10. Most of farmed animals live in horrible conditions and die of frightful way
Several industry leaders portray the animals as happy farm animals. Terror, pain and suffering are the words they should instead use. It is not uncommon for cattle to be beaten, scalded alive or dismembered in slaughterhouses.

Are you angry? No, it's contemptuous face

Scientists have found that the expression that we often make of contempt, it's just an unconscious reaction and no real sense Ever wonder what goes on in the lives of public figures like Kristen Stewart, Victoria Beckham, Kanye West or Anna Kendrick so they always have the face of few friends? Well apparently all suffering from Resting Bitch Face (RBF, its acronym in English). Two behavioral scientists, Jason Rogers and Abbe Machbeth, the Noldus Information Technology, resorted to FaceReader company's software to scan faces with RBF and other expressions without this expression and identify the differences.

After the image analysis, the scientists concluded that more than an internet joke - as the video made two years ago by Broken People Channel - the contemptuous face is an expression that "makes us think twice about every decision when someone does this guy. "

Are you angry? No, it's contemptuous face

In fact, this expression is an unconscious act and can result even when you are not thinking about anything. And already brought problems to celebrities who are often caught up with this expression. This is the case of Anna Kendridck: "When you take a picture and appear in the background, look at her and think, 'oh my God, what's wrong with me,'" she admitted the actress last year on "The Late Late Show with James Corden."

The study shows that the lack of intentionality these guys a few friends was published in October on the company website , but now the US average gave him echo. The goal of the authors was that this discovery "was fun and not taken too seriously, but he had some scientific data that legitimize" said Abbe Macbeth in Washington Post newspaper.

The software used to analyze the expressions searching over 500 points on the face to detect the signs of various emotions, including those that are not so obvious, such as one that is more present in suffering from RBF: contempt. The typical facial expression is neutral, with only 3% of hidden emotions, including a touch of contempt. However, the RBF the level of emotions almost doubled to 5.76%, with the largest increase recorded in the present contempt level.

"The FaceReader not detected enough contempt to reflect true contempt, because these guys are not truly reflect the feelings of contempt," the investigators on the blog where the findings are published. "It just seems to despise those who see the expression. Thus, it is the perception of this subtle and unconscious contempt sets the RBF."

Although this term be more closely linked to women, men also suffer from this problem. If you think you may be a victim of contempt of guy you can contact the study authors. Just send a photograph which has no particular facial expression for jason@noldus.com email and request a review.

Error 53: Apple software flaw that can kill your iPhone

An error found in the iOS system completely disables the iPhone 6 and has not found any solution. "It's called error and 53 is the worst thing that can happen to your iPhone," he described the technology journalist Mike Wehner in an article for the Daily Dot Tech. Error 53 occurs when the software for an iPhone 6 which was repaired in unofficial stores are upgraded to iOS 9, explains Wehner. The phone will lock and can no longer be used.

Error 53: Apple software flaw that can kill your iPhone

When the start button, which appears below the screen and has the identification sensor fingerprint is repaired outside of premises authorized by Apple comes a serious mistake on your phone, which is only revealed when the software is updated. The same happens when the iPhone 6 button stops working and is not arranged before the upgrade. Mike Wehner, technology expert, said: "error 53 kills iPhone." This is because the phone locks and becomes "useless" or, as some experts say, useful only to be used as paperweights. With this error, it is impossible to remove any data or information stored on your phone.

According to The Guardian, several people who left the screen and were forced to replace him, but chose to do it in unofficial centers from Apple, because it was the cheapest option or because there was no brand stores in the area, they said they found this error. In all cases, the phone worked well after repair and only had problems when the updated operating system. Kyle Wiens, founder of iFixit, a website that teaches you how to repair mobile phones and other devices, told The Guardian that the "problem occurs if the repairer change the start button or the cable. When the software is upgraded the phone checks whether the components originals are still being used and, if not, lock the phone. "

According to a spokesman for Apple, there is a link between the data from the fingerprint and the sensor button. When the iPhone is serviced by the authorities of Apple and a change of the sensor is required, the connection is changed and updated. "When the iOS detects that the connection failed" the software is disabled to protect the phone. So far, despite several complaints, there is no solution to the error. Exchange parts or reprogram the software does not resolve and "the only thing to do is buy a new one," as Mike Wehne. "There is no warning or way to bring him back to life," said Kyle Wiens.
