Research: 'brain disease' was seen in one in three people with severe Covid
A comprehensive study of the long-term effects of Covid-19 found that six of 34 percent of those with severe illness experienced psychiatric or neurological problems.
WHICH DISEASES HAVE BEEN?

The prominent results of the study, which examined the electronic health data of 236 thousand 379 people and published in the respected medical journal Lancet Psychiatry, are as follows:
* 34 percent of patients with severe Covid experienced psychiatric or neurological problems within six months;

* The most common problem was anxiety. It was found that 17 percent of the participants experienced anxiety;
* Mood disorders were observed in 14 percent of the patients;

* 5 percent suffered from insomnia;

* Although neurological diagnoses such as stroke and dementia are less common, it was stated that these problems were diagnosed among those with the most severe disease.
Accordingly, 7 percent of the people hospitalized in the intensive care unit during the illness had a stroke later; two percent were diagnosed with dementia;

‘Unimaginable amounts’ of water will flow into oceans if that temperature rise occurs and ice buffers vanish, warn UK scientists
Researchers from the University of Reading said that limiting the temperature rise to 2C could halve the area at risk and avoid a drastic rise in sea levels.#ClimateAction theguardian.com/world/2021/apr…
The findings, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggest that 4C warming could leave 34% of the area of all the Antarctic ice shelves – amounting to about half a million square kilometres – at the risk of collapse.#ClimateAction

But many Greenlanders have grave doubts about whether they should allow the world to exploit these resources
Rare-earth minerals are used to make high-tech devices, including cellphones, flat-screen monitors, electric cars, wind turbines and weapons.

Investigators, she added, now have her ex-husband’s 2019 and 2020 statements of net worth, his tax returns and copies of Wollman Rink checks from private events that she claims were deposited incorrectly.
Vance (D) and New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) — running parallel investigations — have inquired about whether Allen Weisselberg or his son received untaxed benefits from the Trump Organization.

In a secretive military facility in southwest China, a supercomputer whirs away, simulating the heat and drag on hypersonic vehicles speeding through the atmosphere — missiles that could one day be aimed at a U.S. aircraft carrier or Taiwan, according to former U.S. officials
The computer is powered by tiny chips designed by a Chinese firm called Phytium Technology using American software and built in the world’s most advanced chip factory in Taiwan, which hums with American precision machinery, say the analysts.
Phytium portrays itself as a commercial company aspiring to become a global chip giant like Intel. It does not publicize its connections to the research arms of the People’s Liberation Army.

Genetic sequencing dating back 45,000 years shows intermixing with Neanderthals more common than previously thought
The research is based on analysis of several ancient human remains – including a whole tooth and bone fragments – found in a cave in Bulgaria last year.
Genetic sequencing found the remains came from individuals who were more closely linked to present-day populations in east Asia and the Americas than populations in Europe.

The research station, at an elevation of 11,135 feet on the summit of a picturesque volcano, has been monitoring the weather and chemistry of the atmosphere continuously since the 1950s. #ClimateAction
When the station began collecting CO2 measurements in the late 1950s, atmospheric CO2 concentration sat at around 315 parts per million. #ClimateAction
On Saturday, the daily average was pegged at 421.21 parts per million — the first time in human history that number has been so high. Previously, it had never exceeded 420 parts per million.#ClimateAction
