It’s who I am. When I went down, I thought, ‘Well, I guess I’m not going to work anymore, this is over.’” Twitter Login/Register With: Advertisement Facebook Advertisement By SHAKIEL MAHJOURI | ET CANADA Advertisement Lavigne, 34, released lead single “Head Above Water” on Sept. 19 from her forthcoming album of the same name. The song and album making process may have been very different if not for the Nickelback frontman.“I remember there was a point where Chad [Kroeger] was recording my vocals and he had to pull me aside because I was going to cry,” Lavigne recalled. “Whenever you cry in the studio, it is never a good thing for the vocal cords; they tighten up and it can completely change the tone.”“He was like “No, no, no, don’t cry!” I stepped away from the mic, went to the bathroom, sat down on the floor and cleared my head,” she continued. “That might be why you can feel the emotion in the track.”Just because they are exes does not mean Lavigne and Kroger do not have an important relationship: “Chad and I are really good friends. We have remained close and he supports me to this day. So it was really special to have him there and helping me.”Head Above Water is scheduled to be released in February 2019 through BMG Record.

Création du premier poulet OGM qui résiste à la grippe

first_imgCréation du premier poulet OGM qui résiste à la grippe Des scientifiques britanniques sont parvenus à créer le premier poulet génétiquement modifié capable de résister à la grippe aviaire. Cette technique pourrait éventuellement être utilisée pour éviter la propagation d’autres maladies.Le journal Science publie une étude réalisée par une équipe anglaise qui est parvenue à démontrer qu’il était possible de créer des animaux de ferme génétiquement modifiés pour résister aux maladies virales. La recherche a porté sur des poules. Dans leurs cellules ont été injectés des gènes comportant une infime partie du virus de la grippe aviaire.À lire aussiL’œuf ou la poule, qui est venu en premier ? Les deux, répond la physique quantiqueLes poules en question, quoique malades, ont rendu le virus inoffensif pour les autres volatiles. Pour les scientifiques, les modifications génétiques ne devraient poser aucun problème tant pour les poules que pour les consommateurs de celles-ci. Les virus ne devraient pas plus être dangereux pour les humains.Les chercheurs de l’Université d’Edimbourg estiment que ces OGM sont plus intéressants que la vaccination pour se protéger des maladies puisque la modification génétique reste effective même lorsque le virus mute. En principe, la technique devrait être reproductible sur n’importe quel animal de ferme et concernant n’importe quelle maladie.Autre objectif pour les chercheurs : réduire les coûts de production et augmenter la production de viande d’abattage. Pour justifier cela, ils s’abritent derrière d’autres considérations : “Il y aura bientôt un véritable problème pour nourrir les habitants de la planète au fur et à mesure que la population augmente”.

Nearly 1 in 5 US Adults Mistakenly Think They Have Food Allergy

first_img When is a food allergy not a food allergy? When reported symptoms are inconsistent with real life-threatening reactions.While more 10 percent of adults in the US are estimated to have a potentially life-threatening food allergy, nearly twice as many simply mistake intolerance or “other food-related conditions” for allergies, according to researchers.For instance, if I eat melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, even watermelon), there’s a pretty good chance my throat will swell to deadly proportions. Whereas if I ingest nutmeg, I will be relegated to the bathroom with intense stomach pains and loose bowels.One is an allergy, the other a very unpleasant intolerance.“It is important to see a physician for appropriate testing and diagnosis before completely eliminating foods from the diet,” lead study author Ruchi Gupta, from Anne & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Northwestern University, said in a statement.“If food allergy is confirmed, understanding the management is also critical,” she continued, “including recognizing symptoms of anaphylaxis and how and when to use epinephrine.”In a national survey of more than 40,000 adults, only half of those participants with a “convincing” food allergy (Lurie Children’s Hospital’s word, not mine) had a physician-confirmed diagnosis. Fewer than 25 percent reported a current epinephrine prescription.If you down a handful of peanuts and moments later experience hives, wheezing, nausea, and lightheadedness, it’s hard to argue with the fact that you’re allergic—even without an official doctor’s note.But bloating and skin rashes a few hours after eating certain food, though undesirable, do not necessarily equal hypersensitivity.Perhaps most curious, though, is the researchers’ discovery that nearly half of food-allergic adults developed at least one of their damaging immune responses later in life.“We were surprised to find that adult-onset food allergies were so common,” Gupta said. “More research is needed to understand why this is occurring and how we might prevent it.”Study data indicate the most prevalent food allergens among U.S. adults are shellfish (affecting 7.2 million people), milk (4.7 million), peanut (4.5 million), tree nut (3 million), fin fish (2.2 million), egg (2 million), wheat (2 million), soy (1.5 million), and sesame (0.5 million).The full study was published in JAMA Network Open.More on Geek.com:Nima’s Portable Peanut Sensor Could Save Your Life‘World’s First Digital Dining Plate’ Is a Feast for the EyesFirst Lab-Grown Steak Gives Foodies a Taste of the Future Stay on target Nima’s Portable Peanut Sensor Could Save Your LifeSiliconSky design GPS-enabled asthma inhaler last_img read more

Respiratory Pathogen Found In Alaska Dalls Sheep And Mountain Goats

first_imgPneumonia from Movi can develop as the result of multiple stressors including poor nutritional condition and/or environmental factors such as extreme weather, or high population density. Dale: “We are not aware of any pneumonia outbreaks or die-offs in Dall’s sheep or mountain goats related to this bacterium.” Division of Wildlife Conservation Director Bruce Dale: “Our initial research has confirmed Movi in a small number of Dall’s sheep and mountain goats in relatively isolated areas of the state,” adding that Alaska’s Dall’s sheep and mountain goat populations overall are healthy. The mountain goats were live captured and released in Southeast and on the Kenai Peninsula and showed no sign of illness; only samples from goats on the Kenai tested positive. Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-sheep-.mp3VmJennifer-on-sheep-.mp300:00RPd Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A strain of bacteria known to cause pneumonia in Lower 48 bighorn sheep has been detected for thefirst time in Alaska Dall’s sheep and mountain goats, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.center_img Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae (Movi, for short), described as a respiratory bacteria that can cause disease in susceptible hosts, was recently confirmed in four Dall’s sheep within a sample of 136 and in two of 39 mountain goats. Movi is sometimes found in domestic sheep, goats, and wild sheep and goats in the Lower 48, among other hoofed animals. It has been identified as a pathogen in Lower 48 bighorn sheep pneumonia outbreaks that have resulted in significant die-offs. The Dall’s sheep testing positive for Movi were all in Game Management Unit 13A; all were taken by hunters and appeared healthy. The department plans to continue surveillance for Mycoplasma bacteria, including Movi research in Dall’s sheep, mountain goats, and other Alaska wildlife in collaboration with the USDA Animal Disease Research Unit and the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory in Pullman, Washington.last_img read more

FCCs new robocall rules target international scammers

first_img2:42 Share your voice Comments The FCC said that the new regulations are part of a multipronged approach to battle “the noxious intrusion of illegal robocalls, as well as malicious caller ID spoofing.” In June, the FCC voted unanimously on a proposal to give mobile phone companies greater power to “aggressively block” unwanted robocalls. Thursday’s votes extends the Truth in Caller ID Act to text messages or international calls as intended under the passage of Ray Baum’s Act last year. The FCC says this law gives the agency authority to broaden bans on illegal spoofing to text messages, calls originating outside the US and calls using voice over IP. The Truth in Caller ID Act, passed in 2009, already prohibits misleading or inaccurate caller ID “spoofing” with the intent to defraud for domestic callers, the agency said. But until now the FCC”s rules didn’t apply to text messages or international calls. Now they do.”Whether it’s neighborhood spoofing, which makes it look like an incoming call is from a local number, or spoofing the number of a company or government agency that consumers know and trust, scammers continue to hide behind spoofed numbers to deceive and defraud American consumers out of money and personal information,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement. “Today, we rely on new authority provided by Congress in Ray Baum’s Act to update our rules to cover these additional forms of spoofing.” How to stop robocalls The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday on new rules to go after illegal robocallers based overseas. But it’s unlikely to be the final death knell for the scourge of robocalls. Instead it’s yet another tool in the toolbox to deter the onslaught of calls, the agency said.The FCC says it received more than 35,000 consumer complaints about caller ID spoofing in the first half of this year alone. And it doesn’t look like things are letting up anytime soon.The new rules won’t stop anyone from making these illegal calls. Instead, they’re meant to expand the FCC’s authority to go after bad actors. Specifically, the new rules are aimed at closing loopholes in the regulations that prevented the agency from going after offenders based outside the US or scammers who text messages to defraud people.  Tags 2 Mobile Samsung, LG, Motorola: How soon can we expect 5G phones? 13 Photos Now playing: Watch this: FCClast_img read more

Easily make a Windows bootable USB from within Linux Mint with WoeUSB

first_imgEasily make a Windows bootable USB from within Linux Mint with WoeUSB by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on May 25, 2018 in Linux – Last Update: May 26, 2018 – 14 commentsWoeUSB is an application for GNU/Linux that enables you to create bootable USB media for Windows from Windows ISO images or DVDs.So, there’s many different tools out there for all operating systems, for making USB’s of other systems. However, when it comes to making USB’s of Windows, from within a Linux system, I find that WoeUSB tends to be my go-to, it’s quick, painless, and worked without issues in the past.The github site describes WoeUSB as, “…a simple tool that enable you to create your own usb stick windows installer from an iso image or a real DVD. It is a fork of Congelli501’s WinUSB.”WoeUSBIt goes on to continue:This package contains two programs:woeusb: A command-line utility that enables you to create your own bootable Windows installation USB storage device from an existing Windows Installation disc or disk imagewoeusbgui: A GUI wrapper of woeusb based on WxWidgetsSupported images: Windows Vista, Windows 7, Window 8.x, Windows 10. All languages and any version (home, pro…) and Windows PE are supported.Supported bootmodes: Legacy/MBR-style/IBM PC compatible bootmode. Native UEFI booting is supported for Windows 7 and later images (limited to the FAT filesystem as the target)This project is a fork of Congelli501’s WinUSB software, which has not been maintained since 2012, according to the official website.”Installation of WoeUSB in Linux Mint or any Ubuntu based system is incredibly simple:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8sudo apt updatesudo apt install woeusbWoeUSB is also available for Arch, Fedora, and Source, and more instructions can be found on the Github page. Essentially, most of the major systems can install without much of a hassle.Using WoeUSBAgain, WoeUSB can’t really get much more simple. Select the ISO or CD/DVD image being used, select the target device from the list shown (your USB stick should automatically show up here), and let WoeUSB do its thing.I found transferring to my no name 8GB USB stick took around 3-4 minutes to fire Windows 10 onto. You can then boot Windows from the USB Flash drive to install the operating system on a machine or upgrade an existing installation.Last thoughtsUltimately its a no-frills piece of software that doesn’t do anything fancy, but you don’t really need it to either. It simply works, I’ve never had an issue of any kind, and its the first thing I think of to recommend people in need of making a USB of Windows from within their GNU/Linux system.Now Read:A comparison of GPT and MBR partition structuresAutoBootDisk: copy Linux distributions to bootable USB drivesCreate bootable USB drives with RufusHow to fix broken USB install damaging your Linux dual bootThe simplest way to make a LiveUSB from within GNU/LinuxSummaryArticle NameEasily make a Windows bootable USB from within Linux Mint with WoeUSBDescriptionWoeUSB is an application for GNU/Linux that enables you to create bootable USB media for Windows from Windows ISO images or DVDs.Author Mike Turcotte-McCuskerPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

World court grants Colombia disputed Caribbean islands

first_imgNo related posts. THE HAGUE – The International Court of Justice on Monday ruled Colombia has sovereignty over all small islands previously disputed by Nicaragua in the Caribbean Sea, court President Peter Tomka said.“The court concludes that Colombia, and not Nicaragua, has sovereignty over the disputed islets,” Tomka said, reading the world court ruling. The cays are Albuquerque, Bajo Nuevo, Este-Sudeste, Quitasueño, Roncador and Serranilla.The ruling gives Colombia control of the waters and seabed immediately surrounding the islands and cays. Nicaragua gains control of a large, horseshoe-shaped area of sea and seabed stretching from its mainland coast around the Colombian islands.Tomka detailed the coordinates of the new borders, which extend eastward sovereignty of Nicaragua, while maintaining Colombian jurisdiction of an area up to the islands of San Andrés and Providencia, and within 12 nautical miles around Quitasueño and Serrana.The dispute began in 1928 when Managua ceded Bogota the islands of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina with the signing of a treaty know as Barcenas-Meneses Esguerra, ratified in 1933 when the the United States intervened.In 1969, Colombia sought to establish the border with Nicaragua in the 82nd meridian, which Managua rejected, claiming that the treaty did not set limits. In 1980, Nicaragua declared the treaty void.In December 2001, Nicaragua filed a complaint against Colombia at the world court over the sovereignty of the islets, a maritime area of 50,000 square kilometers. Six years later, the court recognized Colombian sovereignty over the three islands.Last May, the court concluded its analysis of the dispute and summoned both parties to a final reading of the ruling on Monday.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) throws against the San Francisco 49ers during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) But whether or not the Cardinals’ line evolves into one of the league’s very best or finishes ranked somewhere in the middle, it’s apparent the work the organization did to improve the situation there has paid off. The Arizona Cardinals have spent a considerable amount of resources trying to build a good offensive line.And you know what? They may have done it.The Cardinals’ line, which has consisted of Jared Veldheer at left tackle, Ted Larsen and Mike Iupati at left guard, Lyle Sendlein at center, Jonathan Cooper at right guard and Bobby Massie and Earl Watford at right tackle has played well enough this season to be ranked as the 11th-best O-line in the NFL by the folks over at ProFootball Focus.com. The site notes the Cardinals finished last season’s O-line rankings at No. 24.Pass blocking rank: 15thRun blocking rank: 10thPenalties rank: 4thStud: With just five hurries allowed all year, Jared Veldheer (+2.3) continues to prove he’s worth the money.Dud: He’s on the field, at least, and there have been many worse guards in the league. But you’d want more out of Jonathan Cooper (-4.3).Summary: It feels like it’s taken forever for the Cardinals to get anything resembling a decent offensive line. Well, after spending high draft picks and handing out big dollars in free agency, that day may be here. Now, can this line grow together if they all stay healthy?While the grades provided by PFF may be a little difficult to understand, there are certain stats that stand out and help tell the story. For instance, QB Carson Palmer has been sacked just five times, which is a mark that is bettered by just three teams, and their running game is ranked 11th in the NFL with 487 yards, though their 4.4 yards-per-carry average is tied for third-best.And though the line has had success thus far, it’s possible even better play is in store as Iupati and Massie are further re-integrated into the lineup after the former missed the first three games due to a knee injury and the latter the first two due to a suspension.center_img Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories last_img read more

Qatari Investment Authority targets Limassol says CIPA

first_imgTHE Qatari Investment Authority (QIA) has shown interest into investing in property in the Limassol area, said Christodoulos Angastiniotis, head of the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA) on Saturday.Speaking on a CyBC radio talk-show, Angastiniotis said that within the coming days a delegation from the QIA will visit the island to discuss the possibility of investments in the Limassol property market.Angastiniotis also said that a group of private investors will also be visiting Cyprus, to discuss investing in semi government organisations (SGO) such as the telecommunications authority CyTA, the Ports Authority or the Electricity Authority.The head of CIPA also told CyBC radio that a delegation from Kuwait will also come to the island to determine whether there are investment opportunities.“These are all promising developments but we should keep a low profile so as to not repeat past mistakes”, advised Angastiniotis.Also speaking to CyBC radio, the chief of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry KEVE, Fidias Pilidis expressed his satisfaction that Qatar Airways began regular flights from Qatar capital Doha to Larnaca.Pilidis argued that this was a positive for the economy because it would  provide Qatari investors with the chance to visit the island regularly. The KEVE chief added that the new flights would bring more tourists to Cyprus as Qatari citizens now had the option of vacationing in Cyprus.Pilidis asked of the Cyprus Airways to examine the possibility of regular flights to Doha.Earlier this week President Nicos Anastasiades ended a three-day official visit to Qatar to try and drum up investment interest.
