Facebook users are rebelling against clickbait with one of the only tools they have (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images) Clickbait. Nobody likes it, and yet it’s strangely irresistible. You kind of hate yourself after indulging in it, the Internet equivalent of being force-fed melted Jolly Ranchers by the spoonful. ESPGHAN Committee on Nutrition Position Paper. Intravenous L... : Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition What Is Known * There is evidence that intravenous lipid emulsions (ILE) play a role in the pathogenesis of cholestasis and parenteral nutrition–associated liver disease. * A number of trials have suggested that novel fish oil–containing ILE could have a beneficial effect on cholestasis and parenteral nutrition–associated liver disease. What Is New * The present systematic review identified 23 randomized controlled trials, which evaluated the effect of different ILEs on cholestasis.

Reiki Healing and Mental Health: What the Research Shows Healing touch therapies, the best known being Reiki (pronounced RAY-key), are ancient practices in increasingly wide use today. According to the International Association of Reiki Professionals (IARP), “Reiki is [a] subtle and effective form of energy healing using spiritually guided life force energy… [p]racticed in every country of the world.” While often considered to be spiritual in nature, Reiki is not “[a]ffiliated with any particular religion or religious practice.” Reiki is increasingly offered in hospital, hospice, and private practice settings, applied to a variety of illnesses and conditions. Those who receive such treatments report relief of symptoms from numerous health challenges, including mental health issues. Research shows that reiki primarily helps in the reduction of stress, anxiety and depression, as well as relief of chronic pain — the last of which can bring on anxiety and depression, or make episodes worse.

hepatitis A "Google" internet search for "hepatitis" will get you nearly four million responses; coincidentally, that is the approximate number of Americans with hepatitis C. So it's no wonder I get so many questions about this disease. Let us immediately cut to the chase: Administered immediately and in sufficient quantity, vitamin C cures the entire hepatitis alphabet, A to E. Intravenous infusion of vitamin C may be necessary to do the job right.

How I launched a product in 15 days, got 962 users in 24 hours and 46 minutes spending only $30 This article is about building a prototype from scratch and testing it before you build the actual product. I am describing my experience and sharing my takeaways from this failure. I am not a developer. I am more like a strategic and fast prototyping guy. I love ideas and I like to delegate the good ones (after tested) to other people to implement the plan I draft. Executive Summary - Reuters Digital News Report 2015 This year’s data see a quickening of the pace towards social and mobile news, a decline in desktop internet, and significant growth in video news consumption online. At the same time, we see the continued centrality of traditional platforms – particularly television – and ever more stark country-based and generational divides over the way news is found, consumed, and distributed. We see the smartphone more clearly as the defining device for digital news with a disruptive impact on consumption, formats, and business models.

European Journal of Clinical Nutrition - Parenteral trace element provision: recent clinical research and practical conclusions Top of page Introduction In human physiology, inorganic elements that are found in low concentrations in body tissues and fluids are generally termed as trace elements.1 For nine trace elements, at least one important physiological function in human metabolism is known. These trace elements are ranked as essential micronutrients and should be regularly consumed through foods and/or supplements. Is There A Dark Side To Reiki? Recently, I read a Facebook post from a healing colleague about the hidden dangers of Reiki. I was surprised by the assertions which basically said that Reiki energy was from a lower vibration and that it harmed, rather than healed, people. While this point of view didn’t resonate with me, it piqued my curiosity. I wondered what would cause a holistic practitioner to suddenly turn on Reiki, especially given that Reiki blazed the trail for so many other healing modalities. This prompted me to do a little digging online, and to also meditate on the question. Allegations Against Reiki

Google announces AMP, a much faster way to load news articles on smartphones This page appears largely as it would on the mobile web, but has been cached by Google and its code stripped down, meaning it loads almost instantly from search results. Google has also designed the technology so editorial content will always load before ads, and ads won’t automatically re-size themselves as you scroll. It should in theory provide a faster, cleaner reading experience. The service is expected to go live early next year, but can be trialled at on mobile browsers. Searching "Telegraph" for example, will load up a carousel of news stories, which can be clicked on and swiped through.

Parenteral Nutrition and Intestinal Failure The aforementioned strategies are important components of SBS management, especially for milder cases. However, for the majority of patients with severe SBS, HPN is the cornerstone of therapy. Patients who require long-term PN cannot be kept in hospital indefinitely, and thus transition to HPN when they are clinically stable. There are four typical settings in which HPN is administered: IF due to surgical complications in the cool-down period prior to subsequent surgical intervention; IF due to cancer, where life expectancy is otherwise beyond that when death would occur from lack of nutrition (typically 3 months or greater); SBS following bowel resection where PN may be continued indefinitely or eventually weaned; and Type 3 IF due to miscellaneous causes such as dysmotility.
