Saigon execution: Murder of a Vietcong by Saigon Police Chief, 1968 South Vietnamese Gen. Nguyen Ngoc Loan, chief of the national police, shoots Vietcong officer Nguyen Van Lem, also known as Bay Lop, on a Saigon street on Feb. 1, 1968. After Nguyen Ngoc Loan raised his sidearm and shot Vietcong operative Nguyen Van Lem in the head he walked over to the reporters and told them that, “These guys kill a lot of our people, and I think Buddha will forgive me.” Captured on NBC TV cameras and by AP photographer Eddie Adams, the picture and film footage flashed around the world and quickly became a symbol of the Vietnam War’s brutality. “Still photographs are the most powerful weapon in the world,” AP photojournalist Eddie Adams once wrote.

Playing action video games may be bad for your brain, study finds - Montreal Playing first-person shooter video games could put certain users at greater risk of developing neuropsychiatric illnesses such as depression and Alzheimer's disease, concludes a new study by two Montreal researchers that comes out Tuesday in the journal Molecular Psychiatry. Gregory West, an associate professor of psychology at the Université de Montréal, says the neuroimaging study is the first to find conclusive evidence of grey matter loss in a key part of the brain as a direct result of computer interaction. "A few studies have been published that show video games could have a positive impact on the brain, namely positive associations between action video games, first-person shooter games, and visual tension and motor control skills," West told CBC News. "To date, no one has shown that human-computer interactions could have negative impacts on the brain — in this case the hippocampal memory system."

Questions and answers on asbestos in your home and workplace | Montreal Gazette Even if the Canadian government were to ban all asbestos use tomorrow, this country will be dealing with the legacy of its love affair with the deadly mineral for decades, perhaps centuries, to come. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used widely in buildings and homes over the last century because it adds heat resistance, flexibility and strength to other materials. It continues to be used, albeit with more restrictions, in construction materials, car parts and other products today. The safe removal or stabilization of asbestos in homes, schools, hospitals and other buildings will be a significant expense and challenge for the foreseeable future. Asbestos-related disease, such as mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the heart, stomach or lungs), lung cancer and asbestosis, is the No. 1 workplace killer in Quebec: 118 of the 196 work-related deaths in the province in 2015 were officially deemed to be caused by asbestos. What is asbestos and why is it used? Yes. No.
Kototama aikido Where You Can Catch The Greatest Super Bowl Commercials Of All Time Let’s face it, it has been a tumultuous year for the NFL. Scandals have been everywhere in the league this year and with fines handed down the size of the gross national products of small countries, it's time to shift the focus to what really matters: Super Bowl Commercials! Just a few days before kickoff, CBS is ready to present the 15th annual special highlighting the best Super Bowl commercials of all time. This year, the special will be putting up “old school” commercials versus “new school” in a shootout to see which advertising--and which era--takes the prize. ...and will be tasked with taking on the likes of 2011’s Volkswagen “The Force” (featuring a pint sized Darth Vader). While most watchers of the big game are more concerned with the numbers they have in their boxes in their friendly office pool, a close second is always the big time commercials. The event is the king of all advertising and can make or break a company's new product, movie, production or service.
New Drug Reverses Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Obese People Home » Liver » New drug can reverse liver disease in obese people By: Devon Andre | Health News | Monday, August 07, 2017 - 05:00 AM Obesity has become an international medical pandemic. Along with the incredible weight gain, obese people are far more susceptible to developing serious medical conditions. One such condition is nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which is estimated to affect 64 million people in the United States alone. There are currently no treatment options for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, aside from weight loss. A new experimental drug developed at the University of Rochester Medical Center was able to reverse the effects of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in mice. High-fat diets cause the immune system to attack the liver Consuming a diet like the one often viewed in Western societies and the one that was fed to the experiment mice, high in sugars and fats, can cause inflammation in the liver.

Kotodama/ Wikipedia Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Outre dans la religion shinto, le concept de kotodama est également utilisés dans certains budo (arts martiaux). Kotodama et aïkido[modifier | modifier le code] Habituellement, la pratique de l'aïkido est silencieuse. Voici ce qu'en dit Gérard Blaize dans son article « Les Mots de l'âme » : « à un geste fixé correspond un son. Voici ce qu'en dit Morihei Ueshiba lui-même : « Dans le bujutsu (techniques guerrières) il y a les cris : ei-ya-to-ha etc. On notera l'évocation de « la respiration du ciel et de la Terre » (ten chi kokyu), récurrente dans les écrits de Ueshiba. O Sensei disait encore, à propos de kototama : « Tous les actes de l'homme révèlent le travail subtil du kototama. Le kotodama est également pratiqué dans le nippon kempo.

Med diet plus exercise could aid fatty liver disease Taking daily exercise and following a Mediterranean diet for 6 months, either with or without antioxidant supplementation, led to significant reductions in accumulated liver fat, reduced liver stiffness (a marker of fibrosis) and blood lipids, together with improvements in anthropometric measurements. Compared with patients following the dietary intervention alone, intake of an antioxidant formula additionally led to a significant improvement in insulin sensitivity measures, reported the research team from Magna Graecia University, Catanzaro. “Our study confirms that the Mediterranean diet can improve anthropometric parameters and lipid profile and can contribute to reducing hepatic fat accumulation and liver stiffness,” wrote first author Professor Ludovico Abenavoli. “Moreover, the association of this dietetic regimen with antioxidant supplementation can contribute to improving the insulin sensitivity parameters,” he continued.
