Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

Magistrate sacked for opposing same-sex adoption is suspended by NHS
Richard Page suspended as non-executive director by Kent and Medway trust after being struck off from bench [...] Richard Page, who sat on the family bench in Kent, was struck off after telling the BBC in March 2015: “My responsibility as a magistrate, as I saw it, was to do what I considered best for the child, and my feeling was therefore that it would be better if it was a man and woman who were the adopted parents.”

Andrew Ling, chairman of the Kent and Medway NHS and social care partnership trust (KMPT), has written to the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) requesting the suspension of the 69-year-old.

Page, who has worked in the field of mental health for 20 years, said about his suspension: “Last week, the prime minister distributed an Easter video in which he commended Christians and the church for their vital role in society, stating that we are a Christian country and should be proud of it.

Exercise 'not key to obesity fight', say scientists - BBC News
[ Food Politics of "a balanced diet and everything in moderation ] Exercise does little to tackle obesity, according to a group of doctors and sports scientists. Writing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, three international experts say it is time to ''bust the myth'' that people can eat what they want as long as they are active. They accuse the food industry of misleading the public, and sabotaging public health campaigns. //&!

Tory thinktank warns Elliott Johnson's parents against broader inquest | Politics | The Guardian
[ public blackmail and scaremongering fearmongering ] The parents of the Conservative activist Elliott Johnson have been warned by the Tory thinktank where he used to work that their son’s mental health and sexuality would be aired in public if they insisted on broadening the scope of the inquest into his death. [...] George Alliott, the lawyer representing Conservative Way Forward (CWF), the thinktank where Elliott Johnson worked until he was made redundant a month before his death, told the hearing that if the scope of the inquest was broadened it would lead to further questions being asked about Elliott’s sexuality and wellbeing. Addressing the coroner, Tom Osborne, Alliott said: “If this scope is to widen, you are going to have to conclude that it will need to involve references to Elliott’s mental health records and his sexuality.” [ wasn't there just a high court decision that mental health records are not allowed in sexual assault/rape cases (ie to deface victim) ]

Why Hillary Clinton’s ‘super-predator’ concession is such a big moment for political protest - The Washington Post
Clinton’s 1996 speech included some language about these so-called super-predators implying that they were a generation of guilt- and compassion-free sociopaths who, in the interest of society, simply had to be contained. [...] Clinton seemed audibly and visibly irritated, saying she would answer if allowed to speak and then, even more notably, “that no one had ever asked her that before.” Then, Clinton essentially moved on with her regularly scheduled fundraising program. There was no accounting, partial or full, for her 1996 position nor how she arrived at her 2016 stance on criminal justice reform. Moving on. [...] Clinton decided to offer an apology for using that “super-predator” and “brought to heel” language. In the 1990s both were part of a relatively popular but now largely discredited theory about rising youth crime. [ tough on crime was] effective tactic with white voters, because in the [US] there are a whole host of persistent stereotypes abt race & criminality.

Rooney Mara über die ungleiche Bezahlung in Hollywood - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Viele Schauspielerinnen verdienen weniger als ihre männlichen Co-Stars. Die Gage sei aber gar nicht das eigentliche Problem, findet Rooney Mara. Sondern die tiefe Verankerung sexistischer Motive. [...] Es solle ihrer Ansicht nach nicht darum gehen, dass Frauen weniger bezahlt bekommen, sondern um das Warum. "Das ist doch nur eine Begleiterscheinung einer viel größeren Sache." In der Filmindustrie ,aber auch darüber hinaus, werde eine bestimmte Sprache benutzt, um Frauen zu beschreiben - die man aber niemals für eine Mann benutzen würde. Das sei vor allem so, erklärt Mara, wenn es um meinungsstarke, selbstbeherrschte Frauen gehe.

[...] But he said the "most important set of results" were on social care. He said the satisfaction levels were "deeply concerning" and said the system needed greater funding. [...] A spokesman for the Department of Health in England said: "There is pressure on the NHS as our population ages, and that's why the government is investing record amounts to transform care."

The upsetting reality of modern day poverty
My food budget? About £45 a week. [...] You see, to Jamie Oliver, a £20 shoulder of lamb is "cheap", because it can do two meals and it’s not the leg, so costs less per kilo. Two meals, Jamie? For 20 bloody quid, I want at least four meals. It’s a sad day when I get angry at Jamie Oliver for being a pretentious, arrogant prick. [...] I can’t afford to smoke. I don’t know many people who can. I have bars of soap next to my sinks and I am able to use them to good effect. I am not dirty. I am relatively poor. There is a difference. [...] The reality is eating plain boiled rice and pretending to like it, so the kids don’t know there’s no other food except for what is on their plates. [...] The reality of poverty is the shame of always having to say, “Sorry, I can’t afford it.” [...] I’ll make you a coffee, but only if you don’t have sugar – that’s a luxury we only buy in if we’re going to make a cake.

UK is 'vulnerable' to next Ebola outbreak - BBC News
"We are also concerned that, in the unlikely but possible event of a domestic outbreak, the UK lacks the capability to go further and manufacture enough vaccines to vaccinate UK citizens in an emergency. "Existing facilities are degraded and new plants will take years to build, leaving the UK in a vulnerable position." The concern is that should a disease such as Ebola spread around the world then countries would look after their own interests first, making it hard for the UK to get hold of vaccines. Prof Adrian Hill, who was involved in trialling Ebola vaccines at Oxford University, described the lack of vaccine manufacturing as a "national security issue". Those concerns were echoed by the chief medical officer, Prof Dame Sally Davies, who told the committee that "we are looking at how we can try and attract companies back".

Gucci Casts First Transgender Model, Transparent Star Hari Nef
I think the most important part here is ... being stealth vs being out: IMG had met with transgender models in the past but passed on signing them when it became apparent that they were not interested in doing jobs that brought attention to their gender identities. They wanted to be seen as models, not transgender models. Nef did not share their feelings. "Give me all those jobs," she told Bart. "I want to work." And thus, the realisation that being trans still matters to the media and the public at large. Meaning it is still a big deal. A deal big enough that IMG doesn't sign trans models that want to stay stealth, because then they would compete with all the other women in the women's pool ... nothing special about that. // via https://redd.it/41vfr5

[...] Families can still veto that consent but must provide reasons in writing. NHSBT expects the change to lead to a 9% rise in donors. It said the 547 blocked donors would have provided organs for 1,200 patients. There are currently 6,578 people waiting for transplants in the UK. [...] The consequence of refusal is that people die as a result - that is the unfortunate reality of the situation

Hungarian PM says UK must alter tax credits plan for EU citizens | Politics | The Guardian
In a sign of the strength of feeling in eastern and central Europe over the proposed ban, Viktor Orbán said Hungarians should not be described as migrants anywhere in the EU, and said Cameron’s EU reform proposals must not be discriminatory. Orbán made his remarks at an upbeat press conference with his British counterpart in Budapest, in which he said he agreed with three out of the four reform proposals that Britain has tabled. His only disagreement is over the plan to ban EU workers from claiming in-work benefits for four years.

Organ donation bill 'unhelpful and potentially damaging' - BBC News
[ other countries who have an opt-out system implemented have seen their transplant rates rise ] A bill currently going through the assembly proposes that everyone will be on the organ donation register unless they opt out. But some of Northern Ireland's most senior clinicians have been warning Stormont's health committee that the bill is unhelpful and potentially damaging. Dr Paul Glover, the regional clinical lead on organ donation, said he believes the bill "in isolation" will fail. "It will have to be underpinned by education," he said. "We have to have society talking about organ donations, talking to family, making their wishes known. "This is about changing society - it's not about saying this is the law, therefore this is what we must do. This is about the positivity of it, coming from society up." //&! bbc.in/1mITlJW &! bbc.in/1UzVe6A

Weather records: December was 'wettest month for UK' - BBC News
Storms propelled by the jet stream were mainly to blame, it says, with contributions from the El Nino weather phenomenon and man-made climate change. December was something of a freak month, it acknowledges. Climate change has raised UK temperatures by around 1C (1.8F) so far, so it will be many decades before this level of extreme weather becomes the new winter norm, it says. Other scientists say that with climate change, there will be no "normal" weather. //&! Storms Desmond and Eva flooded 16,000 homes in England - bbc.in/1O4iNTC + Frank mainly in Scotland. //&!

Storm Frank: What have we done to make the flooding worse? - BBC News
[Strom Eva, Desmond, Frank, ... building code has to be reviewed. new buildings have to be raised, first floor ~1m above ground. no basement. also, roofs have to resist gale winds easily ] Policy-makers are often keen to see brownfield land used for residential development, but these areas are often most vulnerable to flooding. Demand from buyers has fuelled this growth, too. You might assume that there would be huge drops in property prices after highly publicised floods. But in places like Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, and Cockermouth, Cumbria, which experienced heavy flooding in 2007 and 2009 respectively, prices have remained largely unaffected in the long run. [...] "We've tended to straighten rivers, to canalise them, to embank them and all that rushes the water down to the nearby urban pinch point," explains environmentalist and writer George Monbiot, adding that the flow of water should be slowed down and the rivers lengthened instead.

'Grief and anxiety are not mental illnesses' - BBC News
Psychiatric diagnoses are not only scientifically invalid, they are harmful too. The language of illness implies that the roots of such emotional distress lie in abnormalities in our brain and biology, usually known as "chemical imbalances". This leads us to be blind to the social and psychological causes of distress. More importantly, we tend to prescribe medical solutions - anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medication - despite significant side-effects and poor evidence of their effectiveness. This is wrong. We should not be diagnosing many more people with meaningless "mental illnesses", telling them these stem from brain abnormalities, and prescribing medication.

[ Platforming, see paris lees on Germaine Greer and platforming for wrong people ... ] The Newsline journalist was since suspended, and had previously said he was not allowed to comment on the controversy. But in a new YouTube video, West did comment, saying: “I’m not really meant to say anything, but I wanted to just say that I chose between being an objective journalist and being a human being with thoughts and opinions with principles.” He went on: “I shouldn’t have given my opinion on something that was current” but said that at the same time he “couldn’t forget the little boy I was when I was nine or 10 at school and I was being bullied for being camp and being gay”. The video now appears to have been deleted from West’s YouTube page.

Most of extra £3.8bn NHS funds already spent, says expert | Society | The Guardian
Much of the extra £3.8bn allocated to the NHS in George Osborne’s autumn statement has effectively already been spent, a leading health expert had said. John Appleby, chief economist at the King’s Fund, backed Labour claims that NHS trust deficits and extra pension costs mean very little of the extra money promised for 2016-17 will be available for better care. He said the NHS was in a weaker position now than five years ago and faced a real challenge over the rest of this parliament. Labour released figures that it said showed Osborne’s health spending boost was “more spin than substance” because £2.2bn would be swallowed up covering trust deficits and another £1.1bn would have to fund extra pension costs.

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Bacteria that resist 'last antibiotic' found in UK - BBC News
[ over 80% of antibiotic use - livestock farming. also use of colistin. self-regulated. ] Bacteria that resist the most common antibiotic of last resort - colistin - have been discovered in the UK. Officials say the threat to human health is low, but is under ongoing review. Scientists warned the world was on the cusp of a post-antibiotic era when such resistance was discovered in China last month. Now checks have discovered the same resistance on three farms and in samples of human infections. [...] Colistin-resistance was discovered in fifteen of them, including samples of Salmonella and E. Coli. [...] The DNA that gives bacteria resistance to colistin - the mcr-1 gene - can spread rapidly between species. The concern is that colistin-resistance will now find its way into other superbugs to create infections that doctors cannot treat. //&! youtu.be/M2xZBngTIas //&! bit.ly/1O5oHWa //&! bit.ly/1MW3FYW //&! bbc.in/1PkB6G9 //&! 50-50 chance to salvage situation - bit.ly/1Zmx8Qg

Patients less satisfied by GPs who refuse antibiotics - BBC News
[ quick fix society. rather pop a pill than not eat bacon for breakfast. show how much GP's have to change set-up and be incentivised 2 help people change. ] The study, published in the British Journal of General Practice, compared the prescribing rates of more than 95% of all GP surgeries in England to a survey of patient satisfaction. Those satisfaction scores are used to determine how much GPs get paid. Patients' satisfaction rose when they were listened to or carefully examined. A study last year warned that up to half of all prescriptions of antibiotics could be inappropriate - given to patients suffering coughs, colds, sore throats and the flu - none of which can be treated with antibiotics. The overuse of antibiotics has led to antibiotic resistance, when bacteria and infections can no longer be killed off or treated with strong drugs. In this study, doctors who prescribed 25% fewer antibiotics saw a modest reduction in patient satisfaction with them or with their surgery.

But according to a report published today, we urgently need to do God - or rather, as a nation, we need to understand religion and belief much better as a driving force within societies across the world, in order to deal with its impact at home. Here, the decrease in mainstream Christianity and the growth of minority religions are raising questions about national identity (what does it mean to be British today?) and how we can live together and accommodate difference peacefully and cohesively, balancing each other's freedoms and rights.

New medicines 'should prevent not just treat disease' - BBC News
Leading doctors say the NHS must prepare for much greater use of medicines to prevent rather than just treat disease. [...] The future of healthcare is a healthier lifestyle. [<< Professor Carl Heneghan from the Oxford University Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine,] [...] "Having a real impact on reducing demand and improving quality of care in the NHS will only happen when the root cause of lifestyle-driven disease is tackled head on // a 50% health tax on animal products and processed food (high in fat, salt, sugar), alcohol, tobacco products (+100% tax) - with plan to progressively increase tax further and further on every other year; which subsidises vegan school meals, NHS, care system, and fruit and veg go tax reduced.

'Kylie Jenner, wow, being in a wheelchair is so fun and fashionable!' - BBC News
RE: Kylie Jenner wheelchair shitstorm Sometimes you have to ask, do they think only twice about posting selfies on Instagram? On the other hand you also have to feel somewhat sorry for people like Kylie Jenner because they have so little to none perspective and no real empathy, compassion nor mindfulness.

James Dawson criticises parents who attacked his LGBT guide for children | Books | The Guardian
“In 2015, when you read of people comparing gay people to paedophiles you just despair,” “I always think, as a community, we’ve come so far and achieved so much, but then you read something like that and realise there is still such small-mindedness and hatred left to contend with.” Dawson, who recently came out as transgender, pointed to the young LGBT people of Alaska “and the message they’re receiving from this furore: they must be so terrified to come out if this is the reaction they think they’ll get”. [...] Libraries have always been the natural sanctuary of marginalised young people and long may they remain open

Rules banning gay and bisexual men from giving blood to be reviewed | Politics | The Guardian
A spokesperson for the gay rights campaign group Stonewall said: “We want a donation system that is fair and based on up-to-date medical evidence. Currently gay and bi people cannot give blood if they have had sex in the past 12 months, regardless of whether they used protection. Yet straight people who may have had unprotected sex can donate. “These current rules are clearly unfair and we want to see people asked similar questions, irrespective of their sexual orientation, to accurately assess the risk of infection. Screening all donors by sexual behaviour rather than by sexual orientation would increase blood stocks in times of shortage and create a safer supply by giving a more accurate, non-discriminatory assessment.”

Is there a danger to environmental jargon? - BBC News

Charlie Sheen discloses HIV positive diagnosis: 'It's a hard three letters to absorb' | Culture | The Guardian
Today Show host Matt Lauer asked Sheen why he continued to bring people including prostitutes to his home even though they were threatening him. Sheen said it was because he was depressed. He said that the period in March 2011 when he appeared on television and online making absurd claims and going on long tirades was not tied to his HIV status. “I wish I could blame it on that – that was more roid rage,” he said. [...] CBS fired Sheen from the long-running sitcom Two and a Half Men in March 2011 after the Golden Globe-winning actor had a public meltdown and criticised the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre. Filming had been disrupted in the previous year as Sheen, who was the highest-paid actor on television at the time, received treatment for drug addiction. //&! As medical advances help thousands of people, it would be disastrous to revert to bigoted attitudes in public and the media - bit.ly/1Y5qk8S - If a celebrity – or anybody else – has HIV, it really is none of our business.

Blood test could determine prostate cancer therapy - BBC News
[ public perception doesn't exist, about the horrors of cancer, chemo and radiotherapy, and invasive surgery that makes you incontinent and have no sex life anymore ] A blood test can determine whether prostate cancer patients are likely to respond to drugs, scientists say. Tests on 97 men, described in Science Translational Medicine, were able to tell whether tumours were already resistant to the drug abiraterone. [...] Abiraterone is a potent drug able to shrink tumours, but only some men benefit. [...] Cancers can evolve resistance to drugs over time, so the team of scientists set about looking for evidence in the fragments of tumour DNA that float in the blood stream.
