All those cheering folks at Trump Tower when Donald announced his run for President? Yeah, a lot of paid extras. As documented by the Federal Elections Commission, which decided to drop any criminal complaint about delays in reporting the campaign expenditure as required by law.

Vision deterioration in astronauts who spend a long time in space is likely due to the lack of a day-night cycle in intra-cranial pressure. But using a vacuum device to lower pressure for part of each day might prevent the problem, UT Southwestern Medical Centre researchers said. Their study appears in the Journal of Physiology.

A change in vision is the No. 1 health risk for astronauts who spend extended periods of time on the International Space Station. The new research showed that intra-cranial pressure in zero-gravity conditions, such as exists in space, is higher than when people are standing or sitting on Earth, but lower than when people are sleeping on Earth. The researcher’s finding suggests that the constancy of pressure on the back of the eye causes the vision problems astronauts experience over time.

Vision deterioration in astronauts who spend a long time in space is likely due to the lack of a day-night cycle in intra-cranial pressure. But using a vacuum device to lower pressure for part of each day might prevent the problem, UT Southwestern Medical Centre researchers said. Their study appears in the Journal of Physiology.

A change in vision is the No. 1 health risk for astronauts who spend extended periods of time on the International Space Station. The new research showed that intra-cranial pressure in zero-gravity conditions, such as exists in space, is higher than when people are standing or sitting on Earth, but lower than when people are sleeping on Earth. The researcher’s finding suggests that the constancy of pressure on the back of the eye causes the vision problems astronauts experience over time.

To study how zero-gravity conditions affect intra-cranial pressure, UT Southwestern researchers recruited volunteer patients who had had a port (called an Ommaya reservoir) permanently placed in their head as part of treatment for cancer. The ports provided a way for researchers to measure intra-cranial pressure. NASA flights then flew the eight volunteers one by one on steep up-and-down manoeuvres (parabolic flights) that created 20-second intervals of weightlessness. The researchers measured intra-cranial pressure during the zero-gravity intervals and compared these with intra-cranial pressure during standard times of sitting, lying face upward (supine), and lying with head inclined downward.

“These challenging experiments were among the most ambitious human studies ever attempted as part of the Flight Operations parabolic flight program, and changed the way we think about the effect of gravity – and its absence – on pressure inside the brain,” said senior author Dr. Benjamin Levine, Professor of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Centre and Director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine (IEEM), jointly run by UT Southwestern and Texas Health Resources.
“The information from these studies is already leading to novel partnerships with companies to develop tools to simulate the upright posture in space while astronauts sleep, thereby normalizing the circadian variability in intra-cranial pressure, and hopefully eliminating the remodelling behind the eye,” said Dr. Levine, who holds the Distinguished Professorship in Exercise Sciences.

Dr Bradley Smith, an expert on the psychology of dingoes at Central Queensland University said: “It is wonderful that technology and our understanding of brains has got us to the point where we can start to learn more about the Tasmanian tiger despite their long absence… This study has confirmed that, as a predator, they had to think differently than other marsupials, such as the devil. In essence, they thought more like a dingo.”

However, exciting though the find is, Bradley cautions that the tiny sample size of just two specimens limits the inferences that can be made from this work about the species as a whole.

It’s also “difficult to truly infer what the behaviour of the thylacine was like based on looking exclusively at their brains. Results need to be combined with other knowledge from other means, such as studies looking at the shape of their skulls and bite forces, which also tell us about their diet,” he said."

“Millennials”, aka anyone born after 1980, get shit on A LOT by older people. It’s nice to see a positive perspective for once.

I have never known a time when my country wasn't involved in some war or another. Some of my earliest memories are of one of my cousins, and wondering if he would come home alive from Operation Desert Storm. He did, but he came back broken, and died too young.

I was able to get my degree mostly thanks to federal student loans, and I will be paying it back until I'm in my 40s. I pay back my debts, work to try and make the world a better, kinder place... And still get told it's my fault, and the fault of people like me, that things are bad.

Most of my generation is barely old enough to get into political office, if we could even afford to run (which we can't), and yet we're somehow responsible?

Every generation suffers, but Boomers didn't grow up under a constant and very real threat someone might step into their classroom or dorm room and blow them away. That's the reality for us, especially the younger ones among us. I remember Columbine. I remember sitting in class and pondering what escape routes I could take if someone attacked my school. I was a few miles down the road when Virginia Tech happened. School shootings are so common now we don't even blink at them anymore.

So please, tell us how spoiled we are by the participation trophies our parents insisted we have to make themselves feel better. 9_9 Many of us struggle through a reality that is rapidly turning into a Dickensian nightmare, without much hope in sight, and yet we're not giving up. We are not snowflakes just because we're a kinder, more compassionate and tolerant generation than the people who came before us. Maybe the previous generation just has a lot more nasty bullies in it, with a distorted idea of what it takes to be a decent person, who can't take responsibility for the fallout of their own actions.

We only need those safe spaces because the people who make the rules are so utterly determined to keep us living in terror, and openly celebrate when we're afraid.___

"Insurance for everyone" doesn't mean you get healthcare when you need it.

Even though the press and pundits seem genuinely unconvinced by Trump's recent claim that he'll provide "Health Insurance for Everyone!" he might actually be completely serious -- and even correct! In fact, Paul Ryan and other radical Republicans have been proposing tax-payer funded "insurance for everyone" for quite some time... So, while ObamaCare only provided insurance for 20 or 30 million people, TrumpCare could be "universal"... Yes, I know that might puzzle you. So, let me explain:

What Ryan and others have been proposing is giving new life to an idea that's already been tried, with little success, in various forms in 35 states before ObamaCare became law. The idea is that States, not the Federal government, should use tax revenue to fund "high risk pools" that would be used to insure those who have the greatest health problems. Such a program provides "catastrophic insurance" for everyone.

The radical Republicans think that removing the most expensive patients from the normal insurance company risk pools will reduce the cost of "optional" insurance for everyone and stabilize the rate at which insurance costs rise. They argue that if the cost of non-catastrophic insurance is reduced then many more people will be willing to buy it without Federal subsidies or support.

In a limited sense, the Republicans are correct. But, the risks and impacts are massive. For instance, this means that even though you might have an insurance policy, if you get cancer or some other expensive condition, your insurance company will dump you and you'll be transferred to your State's high-risk pool. (You would lose your insurance because you were sick.) Of course, if you had a pre-existing condition, then you would have been stuck in the high-risk pool and would never be able to afford "optional" insurance unless you are very wealthy.

Yes, high-risk pools can be considered "insurance for everyone" just as the existing requirement that hospital emergency rooms provide basic care to all who arrive can be considered "insurance for all." But the quality of that insurance would be determined by the individual states and by the willingness of the taxpayers of those states to properly fund the high-risk pools. History teaches us that that such insurance is simply not very useful. In the 35 high-risk pool states prior to Obamacare, high-risk pools were typically underfunded, under-inclusive (they didn't cover everyone the insurance companies rejected) and very expensive to administer. If high-risk pools had worked, then ObamaCare wouldn't have been necessary.

Of course, wealthy folk would still be able to buy private-market insurance that compliments or extends whatever coverage the high-risk pool might provide. (Even in Canada or Europe, which provide universal health care, there is still a market for some health insurance for folk who want extra care.) Thus, even the sick-but-wealthy would be well insured under the Republican plan. The problem is that normal folk wouldn't be able to afford much, if anything, to compliment the "universal" coverage provided by high-risk pools and emergency rooms.

It is important to understand that "insurance for everyone" isn't actually a very worthy goal. Given existing emergency room policies, you could argue that we've already got such universal coverage and that we've had it for a long time. What we really should be looking for is "good insurance for everyone." (Note: ObamaCare, through its "minimum coverage" requirements, actually banned selling the kind of catastrophic insurance policies that the Republicans are now saying they might provide to everyone.)

So, Trump and the Republicans may really be serious when they promise "Insurance for Everyone!" But, that insurance is likely to be little more than a sham. Eventually, we must assume that voters will figure out that they are being lied to and tricked. When will that happen?___"Insurance for everyone" doesn't mean you get healthcare when you need it.
