'Super-gonorrhoea' outbreak in Leeds - BBC News
&! GPs are prescribing antibiotics that no longer work for people with gonorrhoea, raising the chances that drug-resistant forms of the sexually transmitted disease will spread. - //&! //&! //&! The epic challenges of the post-antibiotic age will take the debate beyond the well-worn issues of obesity and old age - - Health and Social Care Act (austerity) put sexual health services into councils hand, out of GP's purview, and thus councils have to decide what to cut ... sexual health services. unable to reach to minorities and marginalised. And its not integrated into NHS services, thus ongoing treatment and side effects and oversight is putting on friction! And puts patients health & good outcome at risk (becomes a chronic disease, untreatable, has to be managed: Super-gonorrhoea. // &!

Dad bod to Dancing Man: The ethical minefield of body fat - BBC News
So why has accepting human difference morphed again into normalising the unhealthy? So how do we pick our way through this ethical minefield? Clearly some people have medical conditions which lead them to gain weight and human bodies also change with age too.

War in Ukraine a Result of Misunderstandings between Europe and Russia - SPIEGEL ONLINE
One year ago, negotations over a Ukraine association agreement with the European Union collapsed. The result has been a standoff with Russia and war in the Donbass. It was an historical failure, and one that German Chancellor Angela Merkel contributed to. [...] But the impact of that fateful evening in Vilnius goes far beyond Ukraine's borders. Some 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and almost 70 years after the end of World War II, Europe is once again divided. The estrangement between the Russians and the Europeans is growing with Moscow and the West more inimical toward each other today than during the final phase of the Cold War. It's a reality that many in Europe have long sought to ignore. The story of the run-up to Vilnius is one filled with errors in judgment, misunderstandings, failures and blind spots. It is a chronicle of foreign policy failure foretold -- on all sides. &! &! ! - Putin will sein Gesicht nicht verlieren.

Lügenforscher Klaus Fiedler über Zabels Dopingbeichte - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Fiedler: Aber nur so funktioniert unsere Gesellschaft. Das moderne Transparenzdenken ist mutig und gut, aber sicher nicht immer dem zwischenmenschlichen Frieden zuträglich. Schauen Sie sich doch Edward Snowden an, der sich getraut hat, dunkle Geheimnisse nach außen zu tragen. Er wird gejagt. [...] Ich glaube, man solte das Verhalten der Sportler im Umgang mit der Wahrheit vor allem strategisch verstehen. Natürlich geht es bei diesen Strategien um die eigene Existenz, oft um viel Geld. [...] Armstrong hat meiner Meinung nach im Januar nicht alles gestanden, weil ihm danach war, sondern weil es um Millionenbeträge ging und seine Berater und Anwälte mit ihm und allen Beteiligten diese Strategie ausgeheckt hatten. Die Menschen im Hintergrund geben die kommunizierte Wahrheit viel öfter vor, als wir denken. [...] +

Phys Ed: Will Olympic Athletes Dope if They Know It Might Kill Them? -
There’s a well-known survey in sports, known as the Goldman Dilemma. For it, a researcher, Bob Goldman, began asking elite athletes in the 1980s whether they would take a drug that guaranteed them a gold medal but would also kill them within five years. More than half of the athletes said yes. When he repeated the survey biannually for the next decade, the results were always the same. About half of the athletes were quite ready to take the bargain.

Anleihenkufe: Euro-Retter riskieren Inflation - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Das nächste Tabu ist gebrochen. Die Europäische Zentralbank will jetzt auch italienische Staatsanleihen aufkaufen.  Mit dieser Politik nähert sie sich immer weiter ihrem amerikanischen Pendant, der Fed, an. Die Gefahr dabei: Die Inflation könnte steigen.

"Die Fed ist nicht mehr unabhängig", sagt Scheide. "Geldpolitik und Finanzpolitik sind in den USA vermischt worden. Das ist genau das, was Europa nicht will. Denn das würde das Vertrauen in die EZB untergraben."

 "Kauft die EZB Anleihen am Kapitalmarkt, so steigt die Basisgeldmenge"  "Sollte die Geldmenge letztlich in der Privatwirtschaft ankommen, würde sie sich, so lehrt die Erfahrung, früher oder später in steigenden Preisen entladen."
Noch ist dieser Effekt in Europa überschaubar. Zu gering war bisher das Volumen der Anleihenkäufe. Zudem hat die EZB stets versucht, das neu geschaffene Geld dem Markt an anderer Stelle wieder zu entziehen. Dieses "Neutralisieren" wird jedoch umso schwieriger, je größer die Beträge werden.
