Carbon dioxide boosts crop production to £91bn per year – Global Warming Policy Foundation Caitlin Morrison Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Its author Indur Goklany said: “Carbon dioxide fertilises plants, and emissions from fossil fuels have already had a hugely beneficial effect on crops, increasing yields by at least 10-15 per cent. This has not only been good for humankind but for the natural world too, because an acre of land that is not used for crops is an acre of land that is left for nature.”Dr Goklany added: “Unlike the claims of future global warming disasters these benefits are firmly established and are being felt now. Yet despite this the media overlook means that the good news and the public remain in the dark”. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRelated Articles10 Amazing RVs You Won’t Want To MissUndoTop 10 Date Night In Movies & Films Of All TimeUndoCoolest Home Gadgets You Need To SeeUndo Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunUndoSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictUndoComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyUndoMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekUndozenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comUndoGameday NewsNBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesGameday NewsUndoBridesBlushThis Is Why The Royal Family Kept Quiet About Prince Harry’s Sister BridesBlushUndoEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorUndo Monday 12 October 2015 12:00 am Carbon dioxide is “hugely beneficial” for humankind, boosting global crop production to the tune of $140bn (£91.4bn) per year, according to a radical new report out today.The Global Warming Policy Foundation, which analyses the financial implications of responses to climate change, is calling for a reassessment of carbon dioxide, which he believes has been given too much bad press – its new report says. whatsapp More From Our Partners Institutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comWhite House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com
Senior Writer, Science and Discovery (1956-2021) Sharon covered science and discovery. By Sharon Begley Feb. 4, 2016 Reprints Related: Race is a poor proxy for human genetic differences and should no longer be used by researchers, says a paper in the journal Science. APStock High rates of certain cancers plague Asian-Americans Sharon Begley More than a decade after leading geneticists argued that race is not a true biological category, many studies continue to use it, harming scientific understanding and possibly patients, researchers argued in a provocative essay in Science on Thursday.“We thought that after the Human Genome Project, with [its leaders] saying it’s time to move beyond race as a biological marker, we would have done that,” said Michael Yudell, a professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health at Drexel University and coauthor of the Science paper calling on journals and researchers to stop using race as a category in genetics studies. “Yet here we are, and there is evidence things have actually gotten worse in the genomic age.” “Race” means white/Caucasian, black/African, or Asian. That trio is based on easily visible traits, such as skin color and facial features that, biologists once assumed, reflected ancestry and, therefore, shared genes. But these broad categories are both “poorly defined” and “flawed surrogates,” NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins wrote in 2004. About the Author Reprints [email protected] Categorizing someone as “black” can affect medical care, research has shown. Doctors might miss cystic fibrosis in “black” patients because it is considered a “white” disease, a 2015 study suggested. Similarly, because blood disorders called thalassemias are considered a Mediterranean/white disease and sickle-cell anemia a black disease, they are sometimes misdiagnosed when they strike the “wrong” racial group, Yudell and his colleagues wrote.advertisement Using race as a category has other harmful consequences. The higher rates of hypertension and breast cancer deaths among African Americans, for instance, likely reflect socioeconomic, environmental, and other nongenetic factors. “So many health disparities are not about race but are about social conditions,” such as education, and access to health care, Yudell told STAT, so analyzing health data through the prism of race can blind scientists to factors that contribute more to those disparities.The reason scientists still use race as a way to group people — asking, for instance, which genetic variants are more common in this or that race — is that many still consider the concept useful if imperfect, said geneticist Neil Risch of the University of California, San Francisco, and president of the American Society of Human Genetics. There are so many racial injustices and more egregious misuses of genetics, he said in an interview, that “there are much bigger fish to fry” than scrubbing race as a biological category. For instance, the genetics society got its first-ever black board member, Charles Rotimi of the National Institutes of Health, only last year.advertisement Related: Tags geneticsHealth Disparitiesraceresearch In the LabShould biologists stop grouping us by race? “Surrogate” means that “black,” for instance, is used to stand for “having ancestral roots in Africa.” But the genomes of African-Americans are, on average, 24 percent European (that is, one-quarter of their genetic variants originated in populations in Europe). The average European-American genome is 4 percent African, a 2014 study found. So while race provides a clue to ancestral origins and, therefore, genetic inheritance, it is an imprecise clue because many people have ancestors from many regions of the world: a “black” American often has important “white” gene variants, including ones linked to disease.Scientists including Collins and his rival in the Human Genome Project, Craig Venter, urged biologists more than a decade ago to move away from the Big Three racial categories and substitute something more accurate. Yet many genetic studies still use race.Yudell and his colleagues, including an anthropologist and a sociologist, are asking the National Academy of Sciences to convene a panel to recommend ways to categorize people more precisely than by race. Research journals, they say, should discourage use of racial categories in studies that analyze genetic and other biological or medical data, substituting more precise groupings such as ancestry or population — Kurdish or Basque, for example, or Filipino, or Japanese, or Ito.“It’s time to move on” from race, Yudell said.A fair-size contingent of biologists disagree. They agree that race is imperfect, but say it is a useful way to group people. In a 2015 study, for instance, UCSF’s Risch and his colleagues found that 17 percent of 100,000 people had genomes indicating ancestry from more than one continent. They self-identified as belonging to any of 23 ancestral groups (for example, Afro-Caribbean, white European American, Ashkenazi Jewish) like those the Science essay calls for using. But when those 23 groupings were collapsed into seven, basically by continent, they tracked genetic ancestry fairly well.Seven is more than three, however (the extra four groupings came from breaking Asians and Caucasians into finer classifications, such as East Asian and Pacific Islander). Yudell is waiting to hear whether the National Academy of Sciences will study the use of race, but even scientists who think race is a reasonable proxy for genetic ancestry have recognized that three is not enough.

Keywords Client referrals Additionally, the report says that clients who are more likely to refer their advisors rated their advisor as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’ at: setting realistic expectations about investment returns (86%), delivering on what was promised (86%), achieving strong investment performance (79%), and providing fee disclosure (80%). Apart from returns, clients were more likely to provide referrals if they had a written financial plan. Clients who’d received advice about generating steady retirement income and preserving savings are also more likely to provide referrals, it says. Stability of the firm was also cited as a factor in the referral process. It notes that “advisors who are able to draw upon ‘in-house’ expertise to assist with unique planning issues, such as advanced tax planning or health care, were more likely to secure referrals.” “There are clearly a number of steps financial advisors can take to increase the likelihood that a client will make a referral,” said Rodney Allain, senior vice president and national sales director for Prudential Annuities. “While the value of performance and communication are well understood, the importance of the length of the client relationship to building trust and referrals may be underestimated. Tracking relationships and following up with clients when they are most receptive to secure referrals is one additional dimension to the referral picture.” Related news James Langton Client engagement drives growth: study “Engaged” clients are a great source of referrals for advisors: report “Engaged” clients more likely to provide referrals: study Most financial advisors significantly underestimate the amount of time it takes to cultivate referrals, says U.S. financial firm, Prudential Financial Inc., in a new report. The report found that clients take 4.8 years on average before they are comfortable recommending their financial advisor. Prudential notes that this is more than twice as long as the 2.1 years that advisors said they thought it would take. The paper also reports that 56% of clients have provided referrals, and another 36% say they would consider it.

Contingency framework implemented across London boroughs The government has today (1 January) announced that the education contingency framework will be implemented across all London boroughs, following a further review of the transmission rates.In light of Covid case rates rising rapidly across the capital and ongoing engagement with London leaders and the evidence submitted, the government has reviewed the London boroughs where the contingency framework will apply, with all further boroughs added.The contingency framework is being implemented across London as a last resort to help supress the spread of the virus in the community, protect public health and save lives. The framework is not being implemented due to safety concerns in education. Schools have well established protective measures in place to maximise safety for pupils and staff and help reduce the risk of transmission.Decisions on which areas are subject to the contingency framework are taken working closely with Public Health England, Department of Health and Social Care and the NHS. Due to the fast moving situation, and where local conditions are changing rapidly, the review of London boroughs was brought forward for a decision today as part of the contingency framework process.From Monday 4 January, London primary schools will be required to provide remote learning to all children but vulnerable and critical worker children who will continue to attend school.Early years will remain open in London, as will alternative provision and special schools.Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said:Children’s education and wellbeing remains a national priority. Moving further parts of London to remote education really is a last resort and a temporary solution.As infection rates rise across the country, and particularly in London, we must make this move to protect our country and the NHS. We will continue keep the list of local authorities under review, and reopen classrooms as soon as we possibly can.Evidence shows the new strain of COVID-19 is increasing across the country. The majority of the cases identified in London, the South East and the East of England are of the new variant. Infection rates have increased faster than expected in these areas where the new strain has been circulating and stronger measures are required to get the virus under control.To support high quality remote education during this period, the government expects to deliver over 50,000 laptops and tablets to schools across the country on Monday 4 January, and over 100,000 in total during the first week of term. Over 1 million devices will be provided in total.The current plans for rapid testing in secondary schools and colleges remain in place, with two rapid tests available to all secondary and college students and staff at the start of term to identify asymptomatic cases.The first starter packs of up to 1,000 test kits will arrive at all secondary schools and colleges on 04 January. The 1,500 military personnel committed to supporting secondary schools and colleges remain in place, providing virtual training advice and guidance on establishing the testing process with teams on standby to provide in-person support if required.Daily testing of all staff and students that have been a close contact of a confirmed case, reducing the need for self-isolation, will continue to be available to all secondary schools and colleges from the first week of term, along with weekly rapid tests for all staff in secondary schools, colleges, special schools and alternative provision.All pupils, students and staff are encouraged to consent to testing, as are parents of pupils under 16. Testing for primary school staff will follow in the second half of January.The rollout of laptops and tablets to schools on this scale follows close collaboration between the government and its partner organisations, which has seen over 560,000 devices delivered to schools and councils since the start of the pandemic. With the further rollout this term, over one million will be provided in total – making the programme one of the largest of its kind in the world.Notes:Areas with primary schools subject to the contingency framework from the start of term are:Additional London boroughs added:Camden, City of London, Greenwich, Hackney, Haringey, Harrow, Islington, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, LewishamOriginal London:Barking and Dagenham, Barnet, Bexley, Brent, Bromley, Croydon, Ealing, Enfield, Hammersmith and Fulham, Havering, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington and Chelsea, Merton, Newham, Redbridge, Richmond-Upon-Thames Southwark, Sutton, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Wandsworth, Westminster /Public Release.

CPHO Sunday Edition: Canada’s Two New COVID-19 Vaccines: What You Should Know From: Public Health Agency of CanadaOn March 7, 2021, Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, issued the following statement on COVID-19.March 7, 2021 | Ottawa, ON | Public Health Agency of CanadaThe COVID-19 pandemic continues to create stress and anxiety for many Canadians, particularly those who do not have ready access to their regular support networks. Through the Wellness Together Canada online portal, people of all ages across the country can access immediate, free and confidential mental health and substance use supports, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.Next Thursday, March 11th marks the one year anniversary of the pandemic, as declared by the World Health Organization. It is hard to believe it’s been a full 12 months, and it is important to acknowledge all the hardships and sacrifices that have been made along the way, including, tragically, all those we have lost. COVID-19 has affected us all deeply, as individuals, as communities, and as a country.Yet, as the months have gone by, I have also witnessed the remarkable courage, strength, and generosity demonstrated by Canadians. Through it all, it is the incredible support that Canadians have shown for one another that has impressed me the most. This has included, most recently, touching accounts of family and community members, kindly stepping up to help those around them who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, by helping them to schedule their vaccination appointments and getting them to where they need to go to be vaccinated.And as COVID-19 vaccines continue to roll out across the country, it is has been extremely encouraging to witness the recent approval of additional COVID-19 vaccines! A little over a week ago, Health Canada authorized the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, developed in partnership with Oxford University, and the Serum Institute of India’s version of the Astra Zeneca vaccine, for use in Canada. This past Friday, more good news arrived with the approval of the single dose COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Janssen Inc. These new vaccines provide us with additional options to help get more people vaccinated sooner while also mitigating the risk of supply disruptions and potential vaccine candidate setbacks or failures.Many Canadians are curious and have questions about these newly available vaccines. This is completely normal and a good thing! We all want to be well-informed when it comes to issues that relate to our health – myself included. And so, to help you better understand what these encouraging developments mean for you and your loved ones, this Sunday Edition will be the first in a two-part series which dives a little deeper into Canada’s approved COVID-19 vaccines. Today, I will focus on the AstraZeneca and Janssen vaccines, and answer some key questions that have been circulating over the past week or so.How do these new vaccines work? You have likely heard that the AstraZeneca and Janssen vaccines are both referred to as viral vector-based vaccines. But what exactly does this mean?Simply put, this type of vaccine uses a modified virus – the vector – as a special delivery system to carry the genetic instructions for making the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein (the protein studded on the surface of SARS-CoV-2). For the AstraZeneca and Janssen vaccines, the vectors used is are modified adenoviruses. The adenovirus is a common virus that can cause cold-like symptoms. It is safe to use as it has been adapted so that it cannot replicate and does not cause an infection.Once the viral vector-based vaccine is injected into our bodies, the vector enters our cells and instructs them to make copies of the spike protein. The cells then present the spike proteins, or fragments of the protein, on their surface. This enables us to develop a specific immune response against the spike protein, including the priming of immune cells and the production of antibodies, which will help our bodies to recognize the virus and target it for destruction should we be exposed to it at a later time.In terms of administering these two vaccines, the AstraZeneca vaccine currently requires two doses, while the Janssen vaccine is currently the only single dose COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved to date. Are the new vaccines safe? /Public Release. This material comes from the originating organization and may be of a point-in-time nature, edited for clarity, style and length. View in full here.

When the main screen is on, it can be used as a dedicated launching area for shortcuts and apps.Other highlighted features include dual 5MP front cameras, which can be used to capture wide-angle selfies without the need to pan the smartphone, and the addition of a “manual mode” for video, enabling manipulation of options such as shutter speed, frame rate, ISO, white balance and focus.LG’s performance in the later part of the year will be important, following a lacklustre Q2, although it had a strong start to 2015. The company’s performance over the last few years is probably best described as lumpy, although it has seen a run of profitable periods from early 2014.Other features of V10 include a 5.7-inch QHD main display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 4GB of RAM, and 16MP main camera. It has 64GB of onboard storage and MicroSD expansion slot.It will be available from this month in South Korea, followed by US, China and “key countries” in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.LG Watch Urbane goes mobileAlongside the V10 launch, LG also announced “the first Android Wear device to feature cellular connectivity”, with the “2nd Edition” of its LG Watch Urbane.The company said that it “works seamlessly with Android smartphones or can go it alone, when carrying a smartphone isn’t practical or convenient”.It will initially be available in the US and South Korea, followed by markets in Europe, CIS, Asia and the Middle East.
