The common cold has the twin distinction of being both the world’s most widespread infectious disease and one of the most elusive. The name is a problem, for starters. In almost every Indo-European language, one of the words for the disease relates to low temperature, yet experiments have shown that low temperature neither increases the likelihood of catching a cold, nor the severity of symptoms. Then there is the “common” part, which seems to imply that there is a single, indiscriminate pathogen at large. In reality, more than 200 viruses provoke cold-like illness, each one deploying its own peculiar chemical and genetic strategy to evade the body’s defences. It is hard to think of another disease that inspires the same level of collective resignation. The common cold slinks through homes and schools, towns and cities, making people miserable for a few days without warranting much afterthought. Adults suffer an average of between two and four colds each year, … [Read more...] about Why can’t we cure the common cold?

Home Health Wellness Wellness oi-Neha Ghosh By Neha Ghosh on November 18, 2019 Erythritol, a sugar alcohol, is naturally present in some melons, pears and grapes, mushrooms and fermented foods such as cheese, beer and wine. It is also artificially produced and added to low-sugar and sugar-free items.

Michael Every, Head of Financial Markets Research Asia-Pacific, Rabobank International, says sensible money is going into cash and may be some bonds.Edited excerpts: Asian markets were a mixed lot. The European equities opened slightly higher. The tariffs are coming into play – the largest trade war -- as defined by China. A lot of activity is coming out of Europe as well. Are we seeing a case for exposure to equities being reduced and all that money flowing into commodities? Or is it the other way round? I do not think it is a feasible argument for equities or commodities. If we are actually going to see a global trade war, remember, today only the first bullet was fired. If you believe that it is only going to be one bullet, then perhaps you might want to think that both commodities and equities look cheaper. But if you think that there is a lot more to come and one bullet will be followed by many, I cannot see a logical reason why you would buy either. What about the … [Read more...] about Trade war? Stay out of both equity and commodity: Michael Every, Rabobank International
I don’t really know what to do with Thanksgiving. I enjoy flipping through recipes for sweet potato pie, roasted brussels sprouts and spiced cranberry sauce as much as anyone else, but it’s difficult to disentangle the holiday from our colonial history. It seems like we certainly try our hardest to do so. When I was in elementary school, my teacher had my class draw straws to divide us up into Natives and Pilgrims; the former made feathered headbands out of brown construction paper, and the latter crafted black buckled hats. I think we sang a song about togetherness. (My mother-in-law, an elementary school teacher in the Midwest, tells me her school no longer does this. Another teacher who works in the North Bay says his school barely acknowledges the holiday in its curriculum. I’m curious to know what other schools do.) Though one could argue that Thanksgiving can and should be an apolitical occasion, the persistent retelling of history that occurs around the … [Read more...] about Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?
