Brain response to fat could determine future path in tackling obesity, study says Researchers from the University of Nottingham found that eating foods high in fat increased the gut peptide cholecystokinin (CCK), a hormone responsible for stimulating fat and protein digestion. They found this increase in CCK concentration controlled the blood oxygenation level–dependent (BOLD) signal in certain brain regions associated with reward and satiation. The findings add further understanding of current mechanisms involving oral fat satiation. If foods can be reformulated to mimic the brain’s response to high-fat counterparts, an intervention to tackle obesity may well become viable. Study details The high fat meal totalled 520 kcal and consisted of rapeseed oil, emulsifier, sucrose and flavour cocktail.

Japan - Japanese Business Etiquette, Vital Manners, Cross Cultural Communication, and Japan's Geert Hofstede analysis The word for toasting is kampai, pronounced 'kahm-pie'. When toasting the glass is never left unfilled. Drinking is an important part of Japanese culture. It is a way to relieve business stress.

Poor regulation of powerful digital ads undermines childhood obesity work: WHO The experts found that children are “consistently … exposed to countless numbers of hidden digital marketing techniques promoting foods high in fat, sugar and salt [HFSS]” because of “markedly insufficient” laws on non-broadcast advertising. “…current restrictions are narrowly defined, patchy and often take a platform-specific approach,” they added. These failures also undermine action taken in other areas to tackle rising levels of childhood obesity. The “continuing lack of effective regulation of digital marketing threatens the efforts of policy-makers to halt the growing childhood obesity epidemic”, they said.

Why is Central Africa missing from so many maps? You’ve probably had the following experience: You are reading along when a map, shaded in a procession of pastels, interrupts the story. Your eyes travel first to your home country, then to the country where you spent a summer abroad, and then, finally, sweep around the map looking for the brightest or dimmest shades that mark a place is the most or least of something. Along the way you cross a vast colorless expanse where Central Africa should be. “No data,” the legend explains. This gap appears across a huge range of subjects that have inadequate source data for developing countries.

The World Factbook ShowIntroduction :: JAPAN Panel - Collapsed In 1603, after decades of civil warfare, the Tokugawa shogunate (a military-led, dynastic government) ushered in a long period of relative political stability and isolation from foreign influence. For more than two centuries this policy enabled Japan to enjoy a flowering of its indigenous culture.
