The study builds on past research by the same team, led by Jeffrey Millman at Washington University. The researchers have previously shown that infusing mice with these cells works to treat diabetes, but the new work has had even more impressive results. These mice had very severe diabetes with blood sugar readings of more than 500 milligrams per deciliter of blood levels that could be fatal for a person and when we gave the mice the insulin secreting cells, within two weeks their blood glucose levels had returned to normal and stayed that way for many months, says Millman.

Jordan Strauss Invision AP Link Copied Justin Bieber s rollout for his new album has made him seem less man than ghost, here to warn us about the moral catastrophe that child stardom in the internet age has turned out to be. He s currently unfolding a 10 part documentary on YouTube, and rather than dwelling on the glamour of being a young, recently married multimillionaire, it shows a fragile individual pacing a taupe brown recording studio and sometimes retreating to a hyperbaric chamber to calm down. A small team handlers, doctors, producers, and Bieber s wife dispenses medications and motivation to the blank eyed 25 year old, who says he often prefers to stay in bed rather than do anything else.The supposed point of this documentary, Seasons, and of the album it s promoting, Changes, is that Bieber has come out on the other side of an adolescence that nearly killed him. It s a story he s told before, but not in terms as eerie as the ones being used now. Bieber s strong 2015 album, Purpose, touted a message equally applicable to his exes, the restaurant mop bucket he famously peed in, and the other drivers on the road at the time of his 2014 DUI arrest: Sorry. The sonic tone was one of uplift, with the then trending sounds of tropical house sprinkled around like baptismal water. My life is a movie and everyone s watching, he sang in the album s opening lines. So let s get to the good part and past all the nonsense.
In Mangango, eastern DRC, a small community of Batwa people has finally agreed to have the Ebola vaccination, after months of persuasion from the WHO risk communication team and their partners in the community. Esther Mugeni is in her 80 s. She s taking her grandson to be vaccinated. As a village elder, she s a highly respected member of the community, and vaccinating her family set an example for others. I think the vaccine is good for my grandson and for our health , says Esther. After all, he s my grandson. He cried, but I wasn t scared. I was vaccinated too. I m very happy because my children and my grandsons have been vaccinated. Like others in her community, Esther was sceptical at first. She didn t believe Batwa people could die from Ebola, she thought their traditional medicine could save them. She says the Batwa community face specific risks because of their lifestyle, which includes eating bush meat from the forest, a common vector for Ebola. Huguette Muluhirwa from the WHO risk communications team has been trying to persuade Esther and her community of the importance of getting vaccinated. There was a lot of resistance here , says Huguette. The village chiefs had reservations about the vaccine. But we helped them to understand and we succeeded in persuading them to be vaccinated themselves, to convince the community. The elders of the community were convinced thanks to the help of the local pastor, who agreed to be vaccinated before anyone else.
