Such infections are seen as a major problem that highlights poor practices and the risk of spread among patients and workers. Combined with community resistance in an unstable, densely populated region that has never faced Ebola before, the task of containing the outbreak remains challenging.In the current epicenter, the communities of Butembo and Katwa, 86 percent of Ebola cases since Dec. 1 ”had visited or worked in a health care facility before or after their onset of illness, ” the World Health Organization said.
Scientific studies have shown that medicinal cannabis can help relieve symptoms for a number of health conditions, from epilepsy to depression to chronic pain. Now, a study published in Scientific Reports is adding autism to the list.Technically, medicinal cannabis describes any type of cannabis or cannabis derived product prescribed for health reasons, but it is often taken in the form of cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) oil. In this case, 188 under 18s (mean age: 12.9 7.0 years) on the autistic spectrum were treated with medicinal cannabis for six months between 2015 and 2017, the majority using cannabis oil that was 30 percent CBD and 1.5 percent THC.

What s really going on with China s economy? It s a $13 trillion question with massive implications for the continued rule of the Chinese Communist Party and President Xi Jinping, as well as the rest of the world, for much of which China is the No. 1 trading partner.Officially, things are right on track. The latest GDP numbers for the fourth quarter and the full year of 2018, released this week, show exactly the managed, modest slowdown in economic growth that Beijing promised to deliver: 6.6 percent annual growth in the world s second largest economy. Even as headlines trumpeted a 28 year low in China s growth rate, that was just what party leadership had pledged, knowing that the double digit growth rates posted earlier this century were never coming back.

Oath was created after Verizon acquired AOL, followed by Yahoo, bringing them together two years ago as a combined digital media entity with a new name. However, it seems that the organization hasn;t performed as well as Verizon executives had hoped, with layoffs, the departure of AOL CEO Tim Armstrong and Verizon;s recent $4.6 billion writedown on the media business it announced a ;voluntary redundancy; program, a.k.a. buyouts, at the same time.Plus, Verizon decided to retire the Oath brand at the end of last year. (TechCrunch was part of AOL, then Oath, and is now part of Verizon Media Group.)
Unionization has been a hot topic among game developers over the last few years, as anecdotes of 100 hour work weeks and $28 million CEO salaries circulate among game workers. The idea that unions could insulate game developers from stunning, no warning layoffs sometimes without severance or nine month long crunch sprints continues to be popular, although this is the first time the GDC has asked about it in a survey. Advocacy group Game Workers Unite was active at last year s GDC and, in the intervening months, has been working to spread information about unionization and dispel misconceptions, which perhaps helped inform the GDC s polling question.The numbers are similar to a 2014 Independent Game Developers Association survey in which half of 2,200 polled respondents were in favor of an industry wide union up from 35 percent in 2009. Although the GDC s survey, first reported by GamesIndustry.biz, reflected significant enthusiasm for unionization, the reality of forming a union appears intimidating to the game developers surveyed. Only 21 percent of developers said they think games workers will, in fact, unionize, while 24 percent said that it likely would not happen.
A survey of game developers shows that nearly half of game developers support game industry unionization, a majority believe that Steam no longer justifies its 30 percent revenue take of PC game sales, and that nearly half of game makers have spent working overtime hours in so called crunch mode.The organizers of the 2019 Game Developers Conference (GDC) have released the results of the seventh annual State of the Industry Survey, revealing trends in the game industry ahead of GDC 2019 in March.

Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center led by Dr. Cyrus Ghajar recently uncovered promising new science in the battle against metastatic breast cancer. Their findings, published today in Nature Cell Biology, show that it s possible to destroy cancer cells that can hide for years in people s bone marrow.Chemotherapy is often effective at destroying fast growing cells, but there s a problem: cancer cells can go dormant and avoid chemotherapy, only to return years later. In patients with the most common form of breast cancer, dormant cells can avoid detection only to wreak havoc again after many years. This process, known as metastasis, is responsible for more than 90 percent of the deaths associated with breast cancer.

Public cloud infrastructure has been extremely enticing for hackers over the past few years. The report states that the products developed by Tencent and Alibaba weren t actually compromised. Hackers gained full control and simply uninstalled the software, acting like a real administrator. The researchers add that this is the first instance when any malware managed to remove cloud security. The Rocky group achieved this by not displaying any malicious behavior and by using guides provided by the aforementioned companies on how to uninstall their products. In order to deliver the malware itself to the victim s computer, they exploited vulnerabilities in Apache Struts 2, Oracle WebLogic, and Adobe ColdFusion. It s high time for cloud based services to rethink their approach to security given that ordinary security products might not be doing enough in order to avoid malware intrusion.As U.Today reported earlier, Monero is linked to the lion s share of cryptojacking cases. In fact, more than 4 percent of the XRM total supply is attributed to malicious malware. From malicious Steam games to fake Adobe Flash installers that are used as a tool for cryptojacking Monero keeps ruling the roost when it comes to mining malware.

On Wednesday, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice gave his State of the State Address. Hours earlier, children across West Virginia were returning home from their classrooms, in schools that are severely under funded and under staffed to meet their mental health needs. Many of our children returned to homes to face the effects of poverty, the opioid epidemic, or to grandparents or foster parents raising them in place of their parents. West Virginia ranks first in the nation for childhood poverty in children aged to six, and fourth overall in the nation in childhood poverty. West Virginia also ranks second in the nation in the percentage of children being raised by grandparents, due mostly to the opioid crisis that is crippling our state.
