The private panel that began with three key speake

first_imgThe private panel that began with three key speakers at the April 27-29 Casey Research Recovery Reality Check Summit continues with a second installment in today’s Energy Report. This exclusive features Casey Energy Opportunities Senior Editor Marin Katusa, Global Resource Investments Founder and Chairman Rick Rule and Casey Research Senior Editor Louis James, turning their attention to oil and natural gas prices and opportunities in equities. Source: Karen Roche and JT Long of The Energy Report (5/10/12) The Energy Report: Since we last talked in November, oil went from $90–110 per barrel (bbl). Has it established a floor that will stick? Or, as Porter Stansberry predicted during the summit, is it getting ready to crash? He said that using the same sorts of technology that brought on the glut of natural gas will lead to finding too much oil and driving its price down. Marin Katusa: Porter was basing his comments on the success of shale gas in North America, and with that you have natural gas liquids and some oil. In North America, gas became a victim of its own success, worsened by a warmer-than-expected winter. But understand that gas, in general, has very localized markets. When it comes to the oil sector, people think Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM:NYSE); Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDS.NYSE.A/B) and ConocoPhillips (COP:NYSE) are the biggest players. The big players are actually the national oil companies (NOCs)—Saudi Aramco, Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) and Petróleos de Venezuela, which are not reinvesting in operations and exploration. Their production is decreasing as a result. Cantarell, in Mexico, is one of the greatest oilfields in the world, but it’s decreasing by 3.5% every year. The NOCs are distributing profits to fund massive social programs. For instance, more than 55% of Venezuela profits from oil-funded social programs. By the way, America imports more than a million barrels of Venezuelan oil each day and pays a premium over what it pays for domestic oil. But that’s another story. I don’t necessarily agree that the same reasons why natural gas in North America went under $2 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) would apply globally. India is signing $14–$15/Mcf and more; Japan is at $15/Mcf-plus. It’s twice that in Europe. So North America is a unique case; the rest of the world is nowhere near that when it comes to shale exploration. TER: Will that change when the U.S. starts exporting in 2015 or so? MK: I think 2015 is a very aggressive timeline. Eventually, the market will fix itself. But to say that oil will go to $40/bbl by Christmas? I wouldn’t take that bet. That said, for two years we’ve been using $60/bbl oil for our equations. We publish the best netbacks in the business every quarter. So if a company can make money at $65/bbl oil, it will make a lot of money at $105/bbl oil. But if you invest in companies that need $90/bbl oil to break even, you’re not going to do so well. TER: You said the market will fix itself. Will oil go down to, say, that $60/bbl you’ve been using? MK: Everyone isn’t paying $103–105/bbl. Because of the massive differential for selling less, the Canadian oil sands producers are selling as low as $63/bbl. In the Bakken, they’re selling for $72/bbl. So it finds its equilibrium. In the Canadian oil sands, existing production can be profitable at $60/bbl, which we’ve been saying for a couple of years. New production, if it’s open pit, it needs $90/bbl oil to be economic due to the massive inflation in equipment, trucks, tires and people. TER: Why do we quote oil at $105/bbl if it costs $63–72/bbl? MK: A lot of people think that Suncor Energy Inc. (SU:TSX/NYSE) or any given oil producer is making $105/bbl for oil, but companies are selling their product for $63/bbl. It depends on the differential and Suncor’s selling price versus the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil price, which is the posted price. Gas producers in Edmonton are getting much lower prices than what’s quoted in the Henry Hub. The oil price in North America or the Brent price isn’t necessarily the same price a company is selling its oil for. Rick Rule: It’s pretty complex. What people think of as the posted crude oil price comes from either WTI or Brent. That used to be the way the world worked, but we have localized differentials now. One of the differentials that Marin was speaking about is the differential between light sweet crude and heavy crude. And the differentials widen and tighten depending on a variety of factors. For example, production efficiency in Venezuela, the traditional source of Gulf Coast sour crudes, is a factor. Transportation and infrastructure bottlenecks are factors. We’re now to the point where a critical pipeline from the Gulf Coast to the U.S. Midwest, which used to take imported crude into the Midwest, has been reversed because of production declines in Mexico and Venezuela, which encourage U.S. Gulf Coast refiners to take heavy crude out of Canada. All of this is what creates localized markets in oil. The international light sweet crude markets are very stout. Nigerian bonny crude and Brent crude’s international trade is marked by tightness as a consequence of declining supplies in traditional frontier market exporters, such as Nigeria as well as Venezuela and Mexico. The North American domestic market is ironically awash in oil as a consequence of three factors: The high price of gasoline has begun to destroy demand along with the weak economy. The incredible de-bottlenecking that’s gone on in the Athabasca tar sands has doubled tar sands production in four years. And the conjunction of technologies that Marin was talking about has produced a flood of shale oil, particularly in the Bakken. TER: But when the gas at the pump is up, the excuse they give is that WTI is at $105/bbl. That’s the logic presented to consumers. RR: I can’t speak to other parts of the country, but being an oil producer myself and a gasoline consumer, I’m certainly familiar with the California gasoline market. California municipalities constrain the construction of gas stations, so there are fewer and fewer outlets. Some communities that were really tough on how many gas stations they would permit have prices $0.25–0.30 per gallon higher than nearby communities that were more generous. On top of that, all the margins for producers, refiners and distributors that are built into the price of gasoline go to the government in the form of taxes. California is a high-cost refining environment, with high taxes and constrained competition. Gasoline demand in the U.S. has grown 1.2–1.3%, compounded for 29 years, and the United States hasn’t permitted a new refinery for 29 years. Maybe no new refineries would have been built anyway because refinery and marketing margins are so lousy. But that’s the picture. MK: Also, the older refineries need more downtime for maintenance. All these things factor into the equation, and that’s why you have high prices at the pump. In Canada, more than 50% of the price is taxes. Major global production is coming from these NOCs, which I call the New Seven Sisters.* *[Before the rise of the OPEC cartel and NOCs, the original Seven Sisters included Anglo-Persian Oil Company (now BP), Gulf Oil, Standard Oil of California (Socal), Texaco (now Chevron), Royal Dutch Shell, Standard Oil of New Jersey (Esso) and Standard Oil Company of New York (Socony) (now ExxonMobil). The Seven Sisters dominated the global petroleum industry from the mid-1940s to the 1970s, and up until the oil crisis of 1973, controlled about 85% of the world’s petroleum reserves – Editor.] Look at the coming nationalization of resources. Look at what’s happened in Argentina. The private companies, the Exxons of the world, risk their capital and their shareholders’ capital. When they have success, the country nationalizes these resources. So there’s another factor to take into account if you want to understand how tight the oil markets really are. TER: A number of people we’ve interviewed lately say the best bet now is to invest in the service companies—the drillers, pipeline builders and so forth. MK: Part of our portfolio in The Energy Letter is geared toward service companies, and certainly Kinder Morgan (KMP:NYSE), which is one of North America’s largest pipeline transportation and energy storage companies, has been very generous to our portfolio. In five months, there’s been over a 30% gain. But if you’re going to go into the service sector, you have to make sure about a company’s ability to cover its debt, because a lot of these services companies took on massive debt during the bull market and will blow up on it. TER: Looking for other potential investments, Louis, you said that the secret is to figure out what real stuff people need, because it will retain value. When prices on valuable stuff go down ridiculously, it’s a godsend, because you can buy when it’s cheap and sell when it’s expensive. Is the stuff people need cheap now? Louis James: Stuff is not really cheaper. There is deflation in some asset classes and some equities, but life for the average Joe is not cheaper and commodities in general are not cheaper. Oil is still above $100/bbl. When commodities have not lost ground but the equities have, that’s an alligator jaw pattern. I’m not speaking as a technical analyst—that’s just a metaphor. But it’s actually fantastic if you have high, driving prices in the commodities, and you find good, cheap companies with good management, money in the bank and the wherewithal to weather the storms. I also think we’ll see more volatility, and the chances of seeing much lower prices are pretty good. When a bear sentiment grabs the market, it takes everybody down, both the best and the worst players. If you have the courage to face it, that’s very good news. If you’re new to the game, you can get fantastic buys on things that others have identified as great plays, already worked on and de-risked. If you’re already long, it’s a matter of self-discipline, which few investors have. Most of them get burned again and again. They buy high when everybody else is buying. They feel confident. They jump in. Things turn against them. The tide goes the other way. They get scared. Everybody else gets scared at the same time and they get creamed. Investors need self-discipline, belief in what they’re doing and they need to know why they’re buying something to be able to happily take those shares off weaker hands. I think there’s a good chance we’ll see much more of that over this summer and I’m looking forward to it. After the sector bounced back from 2008, I wrote that we should be so lucky as to have another one. TER: Speaking of lower equity prices, Marin, last fall you told us that quantitative easing was deflating equity valuations. “He who has cash will be king,” you said, “because he can afford to buy discounted stocks. If you do your homework and be sharp you’ll make a fortune in the next three years.” Is that still the case? Or are we too late? MK: I still believe we’re in deflating equity prices. By mitigating risk, being strategic, always taking Casey free rides, the portfolios for 2011 for both the Casey Energy Report (CER) and Casey Energy Confidential (CEC) gained over 20%. And Q1/12 was over 20% for both newsletters, too. Throughout the year, a few of our buys had massive gains—like Poseidon Concepts Corp. (PSN: TSX), TAG Oil Ltd. (TAO:TSX; TAOIF:OTCQX;) and Africa Oil Inc. (AOI: TSX.V). Did we sell too early? Yes. But so what? We reduced our risk. We made money. We lived to see another day. And with one of them, we now have a dividend for free and the company’s growing. So if you do your homework and buy good companies, you can do well. I don’t think you’re too late at all. The 300+ investors who attended the 3-day Casey Research Recovery Reality Check Summit discovered a multitude of natural resource investing strategies during daily Gold and Resource Stock Roundup sessions.  These sessions featured Rick, Marin, Louis and Jeff Clark, senior precious metals analyst at Casey Research, who together revealed their favorite natural resource stocks to invest in now.  You can hear all of their  recommendations, as well as every recorded summit presentation—over 20 hours in all—with the  Casey Research Recovery Reality Check Summit Audio Collection.

first_img— — In those days the border was a more fluid concept. In 1917, Pershing lead 5,000 US cavalrymen deep into Mexico, chasing Villa after a raid he made into the US. That was about the time of the famous Zimmerman telegram, where the Germans promised help getting Texas, New Mexico and Arizona back to Mexico, if the Mexicans declared war on the US. That was one reason the Americans entered WW1. No matter… the Mexicans will get that land back without a formal attack.Justin: Interesting indeed. But back to the current situation…Doug: Right. Pershing and horse soldiers are long gone. Let me start by saying that the national guardsmen Trump proposes are basically weekend soldiers. These guys would rather be at home. They’d rather be working their day jobs. They’d rather spend time with their families. They’re not going to be happy about this.Plus, they’re unlikely to serve any useful purpose. Think about it. If they’re confronted by a large group of migrants, how are they going to stop them? Is it going to turn into a game of Red Rover? Or maybe a pushing contest?The only way they could stop a big group of migrants crossing the border is with real violence. But they won’t do that. That won’t happen.In other words, a large group of say 10,000 to 20,000 people, in unison, could easily walk across the border. Plus, understand that the people behind this mass migration aren’t stupid. They understand the dynamics. They know that a hundred migrants would just be a nuisance, to be rounded up and put in jail. You need the military principle of mass.Next time, maybe they’ll show up to the border with 50,000 people. That would be the equivalent of the Goths at Adrianople. That was 378 AD. After that, the barbarians totally inundated the Roman Empire from every angle. And in a generation they controlled every aspect of the Empire.If I wanted to collapse the US, that’s how I’d do it. Who needs the risks and expense of a conventional war? It would be neither hard nor very expensive to get a couple hundred thousand Salvadoreans, Hondurans, and what-have-you—not to mention Mexicans—to just human wave across the border. That would show the US is incapable of stopping anybody—except harassing some polite European tourists in airports, or polite Canadians driving across by car.Of course, there’d be a counter reaction. But things could easily spin out of control.Justin: And who do you think is behind all of this?Doug: Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are certainly behind these migrants crossing the border. Poor peasants from Central America, or wherever—poor people and miscreants will show up from all over the world once the cat’s out of the bag—can’t act en masse. Today these people couldn’t cross the American border on their own. Or at most in onesies and twosies.Migrants don’t have the resources to support themselves. So they’re obviously getting help and funding from outside sources. I suspect it’s coming from NGOs. These people are politically and psychologically committed to destroying Western Civilization. And the average American or European has become so guilt-ridden, self-effacing, and philosophically corrupt that they welcome them.So, again, what they’ll try is sending 10,000, 50,000, or 200,000 people across the border. You couldn’t stop that many people. I don’t care if Trump puts up the National Guard; that will just add to the embarrassment. They’d just walk across the border, unless they’re machine-gunned. But the Guard is obviously not going to do that.I’d also gather as many pregnant women into the migrants as possible, both to create sympathetic photo-ops for the invading mob, and so their children could act as anchor babies. It would create chaos, which is exactly the desired effect.Most people don’t realize that the invasion that followed the Battle of Adrianople brought the Roman Empire to its knees within 30 years… They think that Rome fell in 476 AD, but that’s actually a meaningless date. It collapsed 60 or 70 years earlier, when the migrants totally washed everything away. Rome was just a shadow of its old self by the late Third Century. The army was mostly foreigners. Being a citizen no longer meant much. The government was bankrupt. The old values were being replaced by a new religion. There’s much more to be said. I suggest you look at a long article I did on this in December 2013 here.That exact same thing could happen in the States. And I don’t doubt that someone’s planning that already.

And it’s no secret why he’s doing this. Trump wants to secure the borders. He believes that the “security of the United States is imperiled by a drastic surge of illegal activity on the southern border.”To be fair, this isn’t unprecedented. There have been three large-scale National Guard border missions since 2006. Still, I can’t help but wonder what might come out of this, given Trump’s strong views on illegal immigration.So, I called Doug Casey for his take on this issue…Justin: What do you make of this, Doug? Will deploying thousands of troops to the border curb illegal immigration?Doug: Well, it looks like what could have been a crisis has been temporarily defused. What might have been thousands of migrants rushing the border has apparently dwindled to a few stragglers. A non-event.But troubles on the Mexican border have a long and colorful pedigree. Especially starting from around 1912–1918. For one thing, one of my favorite authors, Ambrose Bierce, went to join Pancho Villa’s forces in 1913. He was in his 70s, and it was his way of checking out.There were some great movies made about that time and place, as well. Vera Cruz, with Burt Lancaster. The Professionals, with Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin. And possibly my personal all-time favorite, The Wild Bunch, with William Holden. There’s even a fun comedy about the era, Three Amigos, with Steve Martin. Recommended Link What does 24245678 mean to you? For most folks, it’s just a bunch of numbers.

It could even guarantee America’s energy independence for decades to come. It sounded too good to be true. But then we watched this presentation. Justin: Yeah, I’ve read a lot about NGOs doing the same thing in Europe. They’re literally moving Africans by the boatload to Europe, specifically Italy.Doug: These people have to be getting assistance. It’s not like they possess outboard motors, sails, or the skills to cross the Mediterranean. That’s serious business. So, they’re obviously getting help. But this has been happening for years.But who’s behind all this? Where’s the money coming from? We need to ask ourselves these questions because NGOs are destroying Western civilization. They’re run by busybodies looking to create chaos. And it’s in the interests of “charity.” Giving them money makes you a “philanthropist.”Justin: Why would they want to do that?Doug: It’s mostly a question of psychological aberration. Combined with perverse and bent philosophies. Universities today are filled with Marxist professors who despise Western civilization. Despite the fact Western civilization has brought us almost all the good things in life.It’s responsible for basically 100% of the world’s great literature, and 100% of the world’s great music. Free markets. Individualism. Liberty. The concept of human rights. The rule of law. Philosophy. Science. Technology. Almost all the noble ideas in the world. There are, to be sure, a few worthwhile things from other cultures. It’s been said that East minus West equals zero, but that’s going too far. I’m a fan of yoga, Taoism, and Oriental cuisine.Why would anyone want to destroy it? It’s a complete mystery to me. I don’t know what’s going on in these people’s heads. But I’ve spoken to people who hate Western civilization, and they’re apparently sincere about what they’re doing.So, maybe they’re just stupid. Look, I don’t care what their IQ score may be. These people are stupid on a very basic level.Justin: What do you mean by that?Doug: Well, we first need to define the word “stupid.” As I’ve said before, the best definition is an unwitting tendency to self-destruction; that’s what these people suffer from. Why? Perhaps they’re really very unhappy with themselves, but don’t have the courage or enough honest introspection to just put a gun to their heads. Hmm… maybe that’s another reason they’re universally antigun.There’s also a difference between intelligence and wisdom that’s lost on most people. Wisdom is the ability to calculate not just the immediate and direct consequences of actions. It doesn’t take much wisdom to make that calculation. The average six-year-old can do this. It’s not very deep.But you also must be able to contemplate the indirect and delayed consequences of your actions. And the people who run these NGOs seem incapable of that. They have absolutely no wisdom.That makes them stupid in my book. You could also say that they’re evil. But that word has also been discredited. A lot of religious types like to bandy it about. Their idea of “evil” is whatever goes against their god.But I’ve read the Bible. I’ve read the Quran. And I don’t think what passes for evil in those religious texts washes, quite frankly. To me, evil is being purposely destructive. And that’s what a lot of people who join these NGOs are.Sure, they pretend to be nice. They act like they’re doing all these wonderful things but they’re destroying civilization. They just can’t see it because they lack wisdom.The people populating NGOs and governments aren’t necessarily evil—even Mao, Pol Pot, Hitler, and Stalin felt they were good guys, doing the right thing. They’re just thoughtless and stupid.Justin: What about a desire for power control? It seems like that’s why a lot of people get involved in government and organizations like NGOs. They believe they’re best suited to shape society.Doug: You’re absolutely right. And they take control of society in many ways. They’re much more interested in controlling other people than they are in controlling physical things, however.Many of these same people naturally find their way into government. They enjoy pushing their fellows around. But, surprisingly to me, anyway, the average person seems to want that. They want a strong leader. They like hierarchy. They don’t mind being under the control of other people.All these socialists, social democrats, liberals, Democrats—their names are legion—think they’re doing the right thing. They think they’re being moral. And you can’t convince them otherwise. Intellectual arguments are useless against these people. It’s a psychological problem, not an intellectual one.You can’t make an intellectual argument to a mob.Justin: Thank you for taking the time to speak with me today, Doug.Doug: You’re welcome.Justin’s note: Most know Doug as a legendary crisis investor. But he’s also a “marijuana millionaire.” And tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, he’s joining me and Crisis Investing editor Nick Giambruno to discuss why investors will be handed a rare second chance at investing in the marijuana market.This second wave is expected to be 8 times bigger than the first, when pot stocks were gaining 3,986%, 17,300%, 69,000%… even 299,000% and 399,000%. To hear from Doug himself on this exclusive FREE event—and why the time to strike is now—click here.Reader MailbagToday, a couple readers write in disagreeing with Doug’s take on nation states…I think “leave states and people alone” is always the best if done by example. What you are advocating is a loss of borders which is the moral equivalent of vanquishing one’s “body” (or your rights end where my body begins and vice versa), in favor of being “bodyless”. You cannot do away with the individual “anything”. A forest is a bunch of individual trees, first, last, and altogether. I don’t think the state is dead, but being transformed into its natural place, sovereign but equal nations.People right now can home school. People right now can form associations. People right now are waking up to this. People right now are beginning to see and not participate in the bloated state. But you seem to be advocating world government, at least you did in “part l” of your article. And, Doug, that is dangerous. And if your ideas don’t come about naturally with time, then world government it will be. A state much more horrid than nation states. And that is why I don’t agree. Westphalian National, sovereign states must be the next step or your ideas (which in and of themselves I agree with) will never come to pass. So please stop going around declaring that the “bordered” state, like the “bordered body” is dead. – Kay While there is some interesting material in this article, this statement is just very stupid: “Sure, he’s (Trump) done some pretty stupid things; his foreign policy of late borders on the criminally insane.” What things were “stupid”? I am not an American, so please tell me: Are you used to making empty statements and getting away with it without a challenge? And what about “his foreign policy of late ‘bordering’ on the ‘criminally insane’”? Challenging North Korea’s Kim Jong-un until he came to his senses? Bombing Syria for using chemical weapons?If you wish to consider gutless pile of sh*t foreign policy, look no further than the totally gutless wonder and complete pathological liar, Barack Obama, who like George W. Bush and Bill Clinton lacked the courage to challenge North Korea. As to the southern U.S. border he is entirely right, you need a wall.

LinkedIn Just Completely Revamped Its Messaging Tool

first_img Kia Kokalitcheva 2 min read Image credit: aradaphotography | Shutterstock.com Linkedin Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful. –shares September 1, 2015 Add to Queuecenter_img This story originally appeared on Fortune Magazine LinkedIn Just Completely Revamped Its Messaging Tool Next Article If there’s one thing more annoying about the deluge of emails that LinkedIn, until very recently, sent to its users to get them to login, it’s the professional networking service’s antiquated “inbox” that makes email feel modern.And LinkedIn knows this, which is why on Tuesday it said that would roll out an entirely new inbox design for both mobile and desktop users. The revamped version is more akin to chat service Slack or your favorite messaging app, complete with emoji and GIFs.The overhaul is one is a series planned by CEO Jeff Weiner that will include new apps and services as well as redesigns of existing ones. The goal: entice users to not only log into LinkedIn more often, but also for longer. Or as Weiner puts it: providing more value for LinkedIn’s members.Image Credit: Courtesy of LinkedInLinkedIn’s design hasn’t changed much over the years, a reality that has started to alienate users. An attendee even created a somewhat uncomfortable moment at Fortune‘s Brainstorm Tech conference in July when he confronted co-founder and chairman Reid Hoffmann about the service’s design, or lack thereof.With the redesigned inbox, users will find invitations from others to connect in the “People you may know” section. Previously, they showed up as a message in the inbox. In addition to emoji and stickers, they’ll also be able to attach documents to their messages, and LinkedIn says it’s revamped how it sorts messages and how it notifies users of new ones via email and push notifications.Last month, LinkedIn LKND released Lookup, a mobile app that lets a company’s employees find coworkers by name, title, and skills by logging in with their work email address. The company came up with the idea after surveying 814 North American professionals, who largely said they didn’t find their company’s intranet helpful for this, and wished they could look for coworkers based on specific skills. In April, LinkedIn introduced Elevate, an app to help employees share company and industry content on LinkedIn and Twitter.And this is only the beginning.

Cannabis oil shown to significantly improve Crohns disease symptoms

first_imgCannabis has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of medical conditions, and studies have shown that many people with Crohn’s disease use cannabis regularly to relieve their symptoms. It has always been thought that this improvement was related to a reduction in inflammation in the gut and the aim of this study was to  investigate this.” Related StoriesCMC expresses dismay at the findings of new report “Drugs policy: medicinal cannabis”New study shows clear link between cannabis use and brain alterationsCannabis-based medication helps tackle dependency on cannabisThe Israeli team recruited 46 people with moderately severe Crohn’s disease, and randomized them to receive 8 weeks of treatment with either cannabis oil containing 15% cannabidiol and 4% tetrahydrocannabinol or placebo. Symptom severity and quality of life were measured before, during, and after treatment using validated research instruments. Inflammation in the gut was assessed endoscopically and by measuring inflammatory markers in blood and stool samples.After 8 weeks of treatment, the group receiving the cannabis oil had a significant reduction in their Crohn’s disease symptoms compared with the placebo group, and 65%met strict criteria for clinical remission (versus 35% of the placebo recipients). The cannabis group also had significant improvements in their quality of life compared with the placebo group.“We have previously demonstrated that cannabis can produce measurable improvements in Crohn’s disease symptoms but, to our surprise, we saw no statistically significant improvements in endoscopic scores or in the inflammatory markers we measured in the cannabis oil group compared with the placebo group,” said Dr Naftali. “We know that cannabinoids can have profound anti-inflammatory effects but this study indicates that the improvement in symptoms may not be related to these anti-inflammatory properties.”Looking ahead, the research group plans to explore further the potential anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. “There are very good grounds to believe that the endocannabinoid system is a potential therapeutic target in Crohn’s disease and other gastrointestinal diseases,” said Dr Naftali. “For now, however, we can only consider medicinal cannabis as an alternative or additional intervention that provides temporary symptom relief for some people with Crohn’s disease.’ Source:https://www.ueg.eu/center_img Oct 23 2018In the first study of its kind, cannabis oil has been shown to significantly improve the symptoms of Crohn’s disease and the quality of life of sufferers but, contrary to previous medical thinking, has no effect on gut inflammation.In a randomized, placebo-controlled study, researchers from Israel have shown that cannabis can produce clinical remission in up to 65% of individuals after 8 weeks of treatment, but that this improvement does not appear to result from a dampening down of the underlying inflammatory process.Speaking at UEG Week 2018 in Vienna, lead researcher, Dr Timna Naftali explained:last_img read more

Measles vaccination associated with health schooling benefits among children

first_imgRelated StoriesRevolutionary gene replacement surgery restores vision in patients with retinal degenerationChaos in the house and asthma in children – the connectionNew network for children and youth with special health care needs seeks to improve systems of careThe study found that at ages 7-8 years, measles-vaccinated children had significantly higher HAZ scores in India (an increase of 0.13 points, P=0.05), and significantly higher BMIZ and WAZ scores in Vietnam (an increase of 0.18 and 0.23 points, P=0.04, 0.01 ) as compared with matched measles-unvaccinated children. Measles-vaccinated children scored 2.3, 2.5, and 2.7 points more on EGRA in Ethiopia, India, and Vietnam, respectively. Vaccinated children scored 4.5 and 2.6 percentage points (pp) higher on PPVT and 2.9 and 4.0 pp higher on mathematics in Ethiopia and Vietnam.Similarly, at ages 11-12 years, measles-vaccinated children had 0.19 higher BMIZ scores in Vietnam (P= 0.04), and they scored 3 pp more on English and PPVT in India. Vaccinated children also attained 0.2-0.3 higher schooling grades across all ages and countries compared to measles-unvaccinated children.Findings indicate that measles vaccination at 6-18 months of life is associated with long-term health, cognition, and schooling benefits among children in Ethiopia, India, and Vietnam.”As a pediatrician and parent myself, I feel confident that these results will show other parents and medical workers how the measles vaccine may help their children achieve better health and educational outcomes.”, said Anita Shet, who is a coauthor of the study and a pediatric infectious disease specialist at the International Vaccine Access Center, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.CDDEP director Ramanan Laxminarayan, a coauthor of the study, said, “At a time when there is hesitation about measles vaccination by parents, the results of this study are an important reminder that the benefits of measles vaccination go beyond child survival and are instrumental in enabling adults who have higher cognitive ability, education and physical stature. These are critical to economic development that every country aspires to.” Source:Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & PolicyJournal reference:Nandi, A. et al. (2019) Anthropometric, cognitive, and schooling benefits of measles vaccination: Longitudinal cohort analysis in Ethiopia, India, and Vietnam. Vaccine. doi.org/10.1016/j.vaccine.2019.06.025. Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Jun 21 2019While the measles vaccine has eliminated the virus in many high-income countries, the global burden of disease persists with an estimated 245,000 measles cases and 68,000 measles-associated deaths worldwide in 2016. India alone accounted for 50 percent of measles cases and 30 percent of measles deaths in 2016. Although low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) account for a large proportion of global measles cases, high-income countries have recently seen a resurgence of measles outbreaks.According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have been over 1,000 measles cases reported across 28 states in the US so far in 2019. This is the largest number of cases the country has seen in almost 3 decades, and since measles was eliminated in 2000. Despite these recent setbacks, the highly efficacious and cost-effective measles vaccine prevented an estimated 21.1 million child deaths worldwide between 2000-2017. The vaccine has also been tied to reductions in all-cause childhood mortality and infectious disease morbidity outcomes in LMICs, although little generalizable evidence exists on the early-life receipt of measles vaccines and associated child growth parameters, cognition, and schooling grades.Researchers examined Z- scores of height-for-age (HAZ), BMI-for-age (BMIZ), weight-for-age (WAZ), scores of Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT), early grade reading assessment (EGRA), language and mathematics tests, and highest schooling attainment across ~6,000 measles-vaccinated and unvaccinated children in Ethiopia, India, and Vietnam. Propensity score matching methods were used to reduce the effects of potential confounding factors.Researchers analyzed survey data from 3 cohorts of children enrolled in the Young Lives Survey (YLS), a longitudinal study assessing childhood poverty. Growth, cognitive, and schooling indicators were evaluated across measles-vaccination groups, and outcomes at ages 7-8 and 11-12 years were compared between children across the 3 countries with reported receipt or non-receipt of measles vaccination at 6-18 months of life. We reviewed children who were followed since infancy through childhood and used statistical techniques that produced robust estimates of the associations of measles vaccination with later life outcomes. It is the first and the largest multi-country study of its kind.”CDDEP senior fellow Arindam Nandi, the lead author of the studylast_img read more

or another major br

or another major breach of the pools by accident. federal regulators had not taken steps to deal with it: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and its contractors have periodically reanalyzed the safety of spent nuclear fuel storage (see Benjamin et al. 1979; BNL 1987 1997; USNRC 1983 2001a 2003b) All of these studies suggest that a loss-of-pool-coolant event could trigger a zirconium cladding fire in the exposed spent fuel The Nuclear Regulatory Commission considered such an accident to be so unlikely that no specific action was warranted NRC’s position the Research Council’s report noted came despite "more densely packed spent fuel pools" in US reactors as spent nuclear fuel piled up In response to the classified version of the report released in 2004 the NRC sent a letter to lawmakers explaining that it had given US nuclear plants "additional guidance" on protecting nuclear fuel But the letter didn’t specify what guidance The NRC has not released the results of a reactor-by-reactor study of vulnerabilities to spent fuel pools said Kevin Crowley a nuclear energy expert who ran the two Research Council studies That study was "very contentious" he said As of 4 pm today when fire had been seen in the pool at reactor #4 a fact sheet dated yesterday from the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) which represents the nuclear industry commented that: There has been some speculation that if the used fuel pool were completely drained the zirconium cladding might ignite and a "zirconium fire" might occur Studies performed by the Department of Energy indicate that it is virtually impossible to ignite zirconium tubing Since zirconium is presumably what was burning in the pools ScienceInsider asked NEI for a reference to those studies Spokesperson Steve Kerekes wrote in an e-mail response: Just today we were made aware of additional analysis that leads us to amend that view Without getting into the details of how or when we acknowledge the potential in certain circumstances and should by now have changed the fact sheet you reference Apologies for not properly reflecting the latest scientific research in this area The new fact sheet "updated 3/16/11" says "There has been some speculation that if the used fuel pool were completely drained the zirconium cladding might ignite and a ‘zirconium fire’ might occur" But it omits the contention that such an event would be "virtually impossible" Kerekes would not elaborate on the earlier studies or the "additional analysis" NEI had received suggesting that Insider ask the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
