There are many reasons why this is, ranging from political polarization to the disinformation campaigns of major energy companies to the sheer technical difficulty of replacing carbon based fossil fuels. But the biggest reason is found within our own minds.When you think about yourself while inside the narrow metal tube of a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) machine, a certain part of your brain, called the medial prefrontal cortex, or MPFC, will light up like Times Square on New Year 's Eve. If you think about a family member, the MPFC will still light up, though less robustly. And if you think about other people whom you feel no connection to mdash;like, say, the inhabitants of the South Asian island nation of the Maldives, which will likely one day be erased by climate change driven sea level rise mdash;the MPFC will light up even less.

Recently, the United Nations (UN) reported that children of some Islamic State (ISIS) fighters are likely being held in secret detention facilities and are not allowed contact with family members, even those who are not part of ISIS. While this is yet another example of family separation, it also reflects how deplorably children are treated during and after conflict particularly when they are stigmatized by terrorism. Children of ISIS fighters or those associated with the group, numbering around 3,000, have already long suffered because of their parents choices, including from horrific living conditions inside camps as the so called caliphate falls apart. For example, the infant of Shamima Begum, an ISIS supporter who left the UK at age 15 to travel to Syria, recently died of pneumonia, a highly preventable and curable disease, because of a severe lack of health care resources in the detainment camp in which Begum had been living. But governments both those who currently house detainment camps for foreign fighters and their families and those whose citizens went abroad to fight with ISIS need not further punish these children for the sins of their parents.

If you experiencing increased thirst and frequent urination accompanied by fatigue, most probably, you have type 2 diabetes. It is a chronic condition that occurs when your body becomes insensitive to insulin. This increases level of glucose in the blood. Due to unhealthy and a sedentary lifestyle, type 2 diabetes has become a common problem these days. Some of the common factors contributing this health problem include obesity, family history, gestational diabetes, polycystic syndrome, etc. You will experience symptoms like increased hunger, blurred vision, slow healing sores, frequent infection, and dark skin colour in the armpit and neck.If you are suffering from type 2 diabetes, what you eat makes a big difference. This is because if you happen to eat something high in sugar or cholesterol, your risk of getting heart disease, kidney infection, etc. becomes double than those without the condition.

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Ivanhoe Newswire) A new study from the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center may change the paradigm of diagnosis. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests kids be first screened for autism at 18 months. The study started screening kids at their year well baby checkup, six months earlier than recommended. That 's resulted in diagnoses and treatment years earlier. More News Headlines Study: Epilepsy drugs linked to higher risk of birth defects Stem cell clinics: Buyers beware Aiden DeCarlo was diagnosed with autism at 19 months in the early intervention study. He 's come to the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center, or SARRC, for nearly a year. ”Big things that we see are in socialization. He enjoys playing around with friends. He really enjoys coming to school, ” said Aiden 's dad Alex DeCarlo. Before he came here, there were tantrums because he couldn 't communicate. In fact, his mom says he was communicating at a five month old 's level. Amber Snowden, Aiden 's Mom said, ”He 's now at between two and two and a half. In nine months, he 's gained a year and a half. ” SARRC research director Christopher J Smith, PhD launched the study five years ago. One hundred and nine pediatricians used a standardized questionnaire in well baby checkups at 12, 18, and 24 months. Diagnosis age plummeted from 55 months to an average of 22. Smith said, ”What we want to do is not wait until we see absolutely clear impairments. We want to act on those early warning signs and get parents to seek an evaluation sooner so they can get into treatment sooner. ” Families were referred to SARRC if screenings showed delays. Aiden was getting help more than two years before he might have been diagnosed outside the study. ”We took all of that lost time that happens as a result of the standard procedure of screening and diagnosing and gave that back to the family that they could better spend on intervention and helping their child move forward, ” Smith explained. Amber shared, ”To see him in the not even a year that he 's already here at SARRC, how much he 's progressed is just completely amazing. ” The study ended in June, but the early screenings and diagnoses will continue thanks to funding from Arizona Complete Health. Smith is working to expand use of the standardized questionnaire and to train more pediatricians and diagnosticians, so families don 't have to wait so long for diagnosis and intervention. He says early intervention is the single best way to help kids with autism reach their potential.
