The study, which was published in the journal Sport in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media, Politics, tracked the growing popularity of cheerleading in the U.K. and focused on the members of four cheerleading teams.  “The participants in our study talked about flipping gender norms in cheerleading,” Dr. Amy Pressland, a co-author of the study, tells Yahoo Parenting.

  • 16/74   High School Quarterback’s Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged Spleen
    SPORTS TOPIC NEWS

    A spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health.  Here’s why that’s a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury.  “An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident,” Katkov says.  While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.

    The plague of “fake news” may be news to Facebook (FB), but it’s a familiar foe to a small non-profit in Washington that’s trying to use mobile apps, big data and social media to promote peace and accountability in places like Iraq, Kenya and Mexico where those technologies have often been abused to spread lies and hate.  The PeaceTech Lab aims to develop “technology that can be applied to tackle the triggers of violence,” president and CEO Sheldon Himelfarb said in an interview at the lab’s Washington headquarters at the U.S. Institute of Peace.

    “The only solution is for Democrats to pass a spending bill that defends our borders and reopens our government,” Trump said Tuesday during a roughly 10-minute televised speech from the Oval Office, employing for the first time in his presidency a format traditionally used to explain major military actions or to calm the nation during times of crisis.  “This is a humanitarian crisis,” Trump said.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer rejected Trump’s description of a crisis on the Mexican border in their televised response to the president’s address.

  • 49/74   Australia considers asylum for Saudi woman as her family arrive in Bangkok
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Australia on Tuesday said it would consider a humanitarian visa for a young Saudi woman who had barricaded herself in a Bangkok hotel room and launched a dramatic bid for asylum via social media.   Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, took to Twitter in protest after she was stopped by immigration officials during a transit through Bangkok airport while en route to Australia. She claimed she was fleeing her family who had subjected her to physical and psychological abuse and that she feared she would be killed if she was sent home to Saudi Arabia. Her family have not commented on the allegations, although her father is believed to have now arrived in Thailand. Ms al-Qunun managed to avoid being deported on a flight to Kuwait in a seemingly coordinated effort by the Thai and Saudi authorities after her cries for help sparked a global media frenzy and frantic efforts from human rights workers and diplomats to assist her. Late on Monday she was taken into the protection of the United Nations office for refugees (UNHCR) to process her asylum request. Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun walks by Chief of Immigration Police Surachate Hakparn in an image released by the immigration bureau “We are very grateful that the Thai authorities did not send back Ms. Al-qunun against her will and are extending protection for her,” said Giuseppe de Vicentiis, the UNHCR’s representative in Thailand, in a statement on Tuesday.   “It could take several days to process the case and determine next steps”, he added. “For reasons of protection and confidentiality we are not in a position to comment on the details of individual cases". Ms al-Qunun had been in possession of a valid tourist visa for Australia when she was detained at the aiport, as she had been planning to seek asylum there. After fears were raised by her supporters that the visa had been cancelled, the Australian government responded that it was “pleased” that the UNHCR was now handling her case. “The government has made representations to the Thai government and the Bangkok office of the UNHCR about its serious concerns on this matter and the need for Ms al-Qunun’s claim to be assessed expeditiously,” a Department of Home Affairs official told The Telegraph.

(@rahaf84427714) January 7, 2019 “Any application by Ms al-Qunun for a humanitarian visa will be carefully considered once the UNHCR process has concluded,” the official added. The teenager was being held in a secure location in Bangkok on Tuesday. It is not known if she met with her father Mohammed al-Qunun, a Saudi government official from Ha’il province, whose arrival, she told her growing Twitter following, “worried and scared me a lot.” After a day of high drama on social media on Monday, where she used livestreaming videos to transmit her increasingly panicked requests to meet the UN and for help from Western governments, her account remained relatively quiet as she processed her asylum paperwork. However, Ms al-Qunun and her friends increasingly urged Canada to open its doors to her. “I want Canada to give me asylum!” she tweeted. But she also added: “I seek protection in particular from the following country Canada/United States/ Australia /United kingdom, I ask any if it [sic] Representatives to contact me.” #UNHCR & #Thailand govt should say NO to request by father & brother to meet with #Rahaf@rahaf84427714.

We are in close contact with partners about her situation. Canada will always stand up for human rights, very much including women’s rights." Canadian diplomats have been praised by human rights workers for their commitment to her case behind-the-scenes. Phil Robertson, deputy director at Human Rights Watch in Asia, who was closely involved in the case as it unfolded, lauded the Canadian embassy for being “steadfast & superb at every step of the way” to help save Rahaf. Germany also spoke out in support of the young woman. Georg Schmidt, the German ambassador to Thailand, had been one of the first foreign officials to publicly express “grave concern” over her situation. The UK’s foreign and commonwealth office has remained silent on the matter. In one of many apparently desperate tweets as she tried to stave off repatriation, Ms al-Qunun had appealed directly to Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary, to help organise an emergency UK travel document.  Ms al-Qunun’s relentless use of social media to highlight her plight sparked a turnaround by the Thai authorities, who had initially claimed she had been running away from her family to avoid marriage and appeared at first to be reluctant to allow the UN access to her. By Monday evening, the Thai authorities had instead assured her safety. "If deporting her would result in her death, we definitely wouldn’t want to do that,” said Surachate Hakparn, Thailand’s immigration chief. The outcome was hailed as a “good day for the cause of human rights around the world,” by Human Rights Watch, which said in a statement that “Rahaf’s tremendous courage and resilience” had been “met with a global surge of sympathy for her” to persuade Thailand to do the right thing.

  • 63/74   Hormone replacement tablets raise risk of deadly blood clots for menopausal women, study shows
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    Older menopausal women taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) should be offered patches before pills, experts have said, after a study showed oral drugs raised the risk of a deadly blood clot. Although previous research has shown a link between HRT and clots it was unknown if it applied to all types of medication. Now a major study by the University of Nottingham which looked at the medical records of nearly 500,000 women in Britain has shown that the risk only applies to those taking tablets. Patches, creams and gels had no raised risk of clotting. Those who took pills were 58 per cent more likely to develop a dangerous clot, which equates to more than 100 extra women suffering the life threatening complication each year because of the drugs. Around 150,000 women take HRT in Britain and more than 80 per cent take pills. The experts hope the results will provide clearer information for patients and doctors about the relative risks of blood clots for all HRT treatments so they can make the best treatment choices. Dr Yana Vinogradova, of the University’s School of Medicine, said: “Our findings are particularly important information for women, who require HRT treatment and are already at increased risk of developing blood clots. “It was surprising to find that only 20 per cent of HRT prescriptions to date have been for non-oral treatments.”   Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is used to relieve symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats and reduce the risk of certain health conditions in women going through the menopause. Some treatments only containing the oestrogen hormone, while others may need a combination of oestrogen and another hormone, progesterone. HRT large The study showed that the greatest risk was from the combined pill, which raised the chance of developing a clot by 73 per cent, compared to 40 per cent for the oestrogen only tablet. The risk of blood clots was also 15 per cent higher for the treatments containing oestrogen manufactured from horse urine than for the synthetic hormones.. However, women who were using HRT in patch, gel or cream form were not found to be at risk, even at higher doses. Although previous studies have shown a link to blood clotting, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently stressed that the results were still not clear and urged doctors not to use them when making decisions. The Nottingham study aimed to finally clarify the situation and used patient records from the the two largest UK primary care databases which contain patient records from more than 2,000 English GP practices and associated hospital records over an 18-year period (1998-2017) to investigate real-life use and risks of blood clots for all types of HRT treatments. The researchers compared the treatment prescription records of all women who developed blood clots with those for a group of women who did not. To ensure that the results properly reflected the effects of the different therapies, the study took into account other relevant health conditions and patient characteristics, which might have affected the risk of developing blood clots. Commenting On the study Dr Channa Jayasena, member of the Society for Endocrinology and Senior Clinical Lecturer in Endocrinology at Imperial College London, said: “HRT patches have the lowest risk of blood clots, and should be first-choice for older women, for whom blood clot risk is highest. “However the study should reassure women that blood clots are an uncommon complication of HRT, regardless of the preparation.” The Royal College of GPs urged women not to panic and said they should not stop taking their HRT tablets based on the study. Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of the RCGP said: “Prescribing is a core skill for GPs and current best practice is to prescribe the lowest possible dose of HRT for the shortest possible time. “It’s important that patients don’t panic or stop taking HRT as a result of reading about this study, but instead discuss their concerns at their next routine GP appointment, or seek advice from a reputable website like NHS Choices.” The research was published in the BMJ.

Around 150,000 women take HRT in Britain and more than 80 per cent take pills. The experts hope the results will provide clearer information for patients and doctors about the relative risks of blood clots for all HRT treatments so they can make the best treatment choices. Dr Yana Vinogradova, of the University’s School of Medicine, said: “Our findings are particularly important information for women, who require HRT treatment and are already at increased risk of developing blood clots. “It was surprising to find that only 20 per cent of HRT prescriptions to date have been for non-oral treatments.”   Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is used to relieve symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats and reduce the risk of certain health conditions in women going through the menopause. Some treatments only containing the oestrogen hormone, while others may need a combination of oestrogen and another hormone, progesterone. HRT large The study showed that the greatest risk was from the combined pill, which raised the chance of developing a clot by 73 per cent, compared to 40 per cent for the oestrogen only tablet. The risk of blood clots was also 15 per cent higher for the treatments containing oestrogen manufactured from horse urine than for the synthetic hormones.. However, women who were using HRT in patch, gel or cream form were not found to be at risk, even at higher doses. Although previous studies have shown a link to blood clotting, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently stressed that the results were still not clear and urged doctors not to use them when making decisions. The Nottingham study aimed to finally clarify the situation and used patient records from the the two largest UK primary care databases which contain patient records from more than 2,000 English GP practices and associated hospital records over an 18-year period (1998-2017) to investigate real-life use and risks of blood clots for all types of HRT treatments. The researchers compared the treatment prescription records of all women who developed blood clots with those for a group of women who did not. To ensure that the results properly reflected the effects of the different therapies, the study took into account other relevant health conditions and patient characteristics, which might have affected the risk of developing blood clots. Commenting On the study Dr Channa Jayasena, member of the Society for Endocrinology and Senior Clinical Lecturer in Endocrinology at Imperial College London, said: “HRT patches have the lowest risk of blood clots, and should be first-choice for older women, for whom blood clot risk is highest. “However the study should reassure women that blood clots are an uncommon complication of HRT, regardless of the preparation.” The Royal College of GPs urged women not to panic and said they should not stop taking their HRT tablets based on the study. Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of the RCGP said: “Prescribing is a core skill for GPs and current best practice is to prescribe the lowest possible dose of HRT for the shortest possible time. “It’s important that patients don’t panic or stop taking HRT as a result of reading about this study, but instead discuss their concerns at their next routine GP appointment, or seek advice from a reputable website like NHS Choices.” The research was published in the BMJ.

  • 65/74   Of Course That Stupid Tesla-On-Autopilot Hitting A Robot Video Is Very Likely Bullshit
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    I’m sure by now you’ve seen the various blogs and articles about how a “self-driving Tesla” drove into and severely injured an innocent robot from the Russian company Promobot during CES in Philadelphia. While it may be fun to think of this as one of the historic first cases of robot car-on-humanoid robot violence and a prelude to a future of, I don’t know, automated fight clubs, don’t be fooled. I’m just about certain it was all a staged bullshit stunt.
