Executive attention is one of the three networks that make up a person’s attention capacity. It is involved in high-level forms of attention, such as the detection and resolution of conflicts between options and responses, error detection, response inhibition, and the regulation of thoughts and feelings.Whereas previous studies in the BREATHE project analyzed exposure to air pollution at schools over the course of a year, this study assessed exposures at the participants’ homes over a much longer time: from the prenatal period to 7 years of age.”This study reinforces our previous findings and confirms that exposure to air pollution at the beginning of life and throughout childhood is a threat to neurodevelopment and an obstacle that prevents children from reaching their full potential,” commented Jordi Sunyer, Childhood and Environment Programme Coordinator at ISGlobal and last author of the study.Source:Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal)Journal reference:Rivas, I. et al.

(Editor)May 23 2019A growing body of research suggests that exposure to air pollution in the earliest stages of life is associated with negative effects on cognitive abilities. A new study led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), a center supported by “la Caixa”, has provided new data: exposure to particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 μm (PM2.5) during pregnancy and the first years of life is associated with a reduction in fundamental cognitive abilities, such as working memory and executive attention.The study, carried out as part of the BREATHE project, has been published in Environmental Health Perspectives. The objective was to build on the knowledge generated by earlier studies carried out by the same team, which found lower levels of cognitive development in children attending schools with higher levels of traffic-related air pollution.The study included 2,221 children between 7 and 10 years of age attending schools in the city of Barcelona. The children’s cognitive abilities were assessed using various computerized tests. Exposure to air pollution at home during pregnancy and throughout childhood was estimated with a mathematical model using real measurements.The study found that greater PM2.5 exposure from pregnancy until age 7 years was associated with lower working memory scores on tests administered between the ages of 7 and 10 years. The results suggest that exposure to fine particulate matter throughout the study period had a cumulative effect, although the associations were stronger when the most recent years of exposure were taken into account. Working memory is a cognitive system responsible for temporarily holding information for subsequent manipulation. It plays a fundamental role in learning, reasoning, problem-solving and language comprehension.Sex-stratified analysis showed that the relationship between PM2.5 exposure and diminished working memory was found only in boys.last_img read more


New etattoo beats conventional methods at monitoring heart health

Posted On Jul 18 2019 by

first_imgCredit: Cockrell School of Engineering, The University of Texas at AustinAccording to the National Center for Health, the leading cause of death in Texas is heart disease, which accounted for more than 45,000 deaths across the state in 2017.Currently, doctors use electrocardiographs (ECG) to monitor the heart – a technology that has not changed in any significant way for almost a century.Now, Nanshu Lu from the Cockrell School of Engineering and colleagues have developed an electronic tattoo technology – a wearable, graphene-based device that is placed on the skin surface where it measures various electrical and biochemical parameters.As recently reported in the journal Advanced Science, the lightweight, stretchable device can be placed on skin across the heart for long periods, without causing any significant discomfort. It tracks heart health by simultaneously taking electrocardiograph (ECG) or seismocardiography (SCG) measurements.With ECG, the rates of electrical activity in the heart are measured for each heartbeat, while SCG measures the associated chest vibrations. The e-tattoo, which is connected to and powered by a Smartphone is the first device to incorporate both ECG and SCG for monitoring of heart health.Related StoriesCutting around 300 calories a day protects the heart even in svelte adultsStudy explores role of iron in over 900 diseasesRepurposing a heart drug could increase survival rate of children with ependymomaMonitoring the heart using ECG alone is not accurate enough to determine heart health properly. However, it does provide useful additional data once combined with SCG measurements, which serve as form of quality control by indicating the accuracy of ECG.”We can get much greater insight into heart health by the synchronous collection of data from both sources,” says Lu.Although e-tattoos that take ECG readings are not a new technology, other technologies such as the SCG sensor are usually non-stretchable devices that are awkward and uncomfortable to wear. Now, Lu and colleagues have used a piezoelectric polymer that generates electric charge when it senses mechanical stress to incorporate SCG measurements into the soft stretchy e-tattoo.The device also includes 3D digital imaging technology that maps chest vibrations so that the optimal position for the device can be identified.A further advantage over conventional technologies is that unlike ECG, the tattoo eliminates the need to attend a doctor’s appointment, where heart health would only be assessed for a couple of minutes at a time. With the e-tattoo, heart health con be monitored constantly over the course of days.Lu and colleagues are now working to improve the data collection and storage the device provides, as well as how it is powered; a wireless form of powering would mean the device can be worn for even longer periods.Recently, the researchers developed a smartphone app that safely stores data and also displays images of the heart beating in real-time.

TMobile to pay 40 million after using fake ring tones on some

Posted On Jul 18 2019 by

T-Mobile has agreed to pay a $40 million settlement to end a Federal Communications Commission investigation that found some of its customers weren’t able to complete calls to certain rural areas.The investigation started in 2016 when the FCC heard from a few customers and rural telephone companies in Wisconsin that some calls originating on T-Mobile phones weren’t reaching phones in three rural areas. As the FCC investigated, it found seven more areas with the same issues and found the company hadn’t fixed the issues after learning about them.Exacerbating the rural woes, it seems some customers thought their calls were going through and the other person just wasn’t answering. Since 2007, T-Mobile had been inserting ringing sounds on the caller’s end when service was slow and a connection hadn’t actually been made to the recipient’s phone, according to the settlement documents.In 2014, the FCC enacted a rule prohibiting telecom providers from using false rings, which disguise poor connections. T-Mobile, the settlement said, continued the practice on some out-of-network calls, totaling hundreds of millions of calls every year.T-Mobile said Monday that the false-ringtone issue was an unintentional oversight that was fixed in January 2017.”T-Mobile is committed to all of our customers across the country,” the company said in a statement.T-Mobile’s coverage has historically been stronger in urban areas. As it starts implementing its new low-band spectrum, which it won during the federal spectrum auction last year, it is expected to improve coverage in rural areas.As part of the settlement, T-Mobile will make plans for dealing with rural call issues, including working with immediate providers in those areas to improve connections. It will report issues and solutions to the FCC.T-Mobile, which had revenue of $40.6 billion last year, has paid previous fines as part of settlements with the FCC. It was fined $17.5 million in 2015 after two 911 outages, and it paid $48 million in 2016 to settle an investigation over claims that marketing campaigns for its unlimited-data plan were misleading.

Chinese companies flee overseas to avoid US tariffs

Posted On Jul 18 2019 by

first_img The world’s two largest economies have been locked in a months-long trade fight after Trump imposed 25 percent customs duties on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods this summer, triggering a swift tit-for-tat response from Beijing. Chinese factories making everything from bikes to tyres, plastics and textiles are moving assembly lines abroad to skirt higher customs taxes on their exports to the United States and elsewhere, according to public filings.Hl Corp, a Shenzhen-listed bike parts maker, made clear to investors last month that tariffs were in mind when it decided to move production to Vietnam.The factory will “reduce and evade” the impact of tariffs, management wrote, noting Trump hit e-bikes in August, with new border taxes planned for bicycles and their parts.Trump warned last week those tariffs—targeting $200 billion in Chinese imports—could come “very soon”.”It’s inevitable that the new duties will lead companies to review their supply chains globally—overnight they will become 25 percent less competitive than they were,” said Christopher Rogers, a supply chain expert at trade data firm Panjiva.Supply chains have already begun relocating out of China in recent years as its rising labour and environmental protection costs have made the country less attractive.Tariffs are adding fuel to the fire, experts and companies say.”China-US trade frictions are accelerating the trend of the global value chain changing shape,” said Cui Fan, research director at the China Society of WTO Studies, a think tank affiliated with the commerce ministry.”The shifting abroad of labour-intensive assembly could bring unemployment problems and this needs to be closely watched,” Cui said, adding the shift would not help the US’s overall trade deficit. Zhejiang Hailide New Material ships much of its industrial yarns, tyre cord fabric, and printing materials from its plant in eastern Zhejiang province to the US and other countries.Trump’s first wave of tariffs on $50 billion in goods this summer hit some of its exports; the next round of $200 billion looks like it will hit several more.”Currently all of our company’s production is in China. To better evade the risks of anti-dumping cases and tariff hikes, our company has after lengthy investigation decided to set up a factory in Vietnam,” executives told investors last month.”We hope to speed up its construction, and hope in the future it can handle production for the American market,” a company vice president said of the $155 million investment that will ramp up production by 50 percent.Other moves abroad spurred on by tariff risks include a garment maker going to Myanmar, a mattress company opening a plant in Thailand and an electronic motor producer acquiring a Mexico-based factory, according to public filings from the firms.Linglong Tyre is relying mostly on low cost credit to build a $994 million plant in Serbia.The entire tyre industry faces a “grim trade friction situation”, Linglong told investors last month, citing “one after another” anti-dumping cases against China.”Building a factory abroad allows ‘indirect growth,’ by evading international trade barriers.” Chart showing the 2017 value of sectors that will be hit by President Donald Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods Beijing is worried by a growing list of foreign and Chinese firms moving production and factories abroad A growing number of Chinese companies are adopting a crafty way to evade US President Donald Trump’s tariffs: remove the “Made in China” label by shifting production to countries such as Vietnam, Serbia and Mexico. Chinese firms race abroadThe growing list of foreign firms moving supply chains away from China—toy company Hasbro, camera maker Olympus, shoe brands Deckers and Steve Madden, among many others—already has Beijing worried.Less discussed are the Chinese factories doing the same. Citation: Chinese companies flee overseas to avoid US tariffs (2018, September 11) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-09-chinese-companies-overseas-tariffs.html China’s textiles factories are among those looking to relocate abroad to avoid US tariffs Bike industry shifts gearChina’s bike industry faces a similar pivotal moment. The centre of manufacturing will shift away from China in the future, bike part maker H1 Corp told investors when announcing its Vietnam factory.Some of Hl’s customers started moving production—especially of e-bikes—to Vietnam, said Alex Lee, in charge of global sales at Hl Corp. “First of all there is no anti-dumping tax on Vietnam,” Lee said, adding labour costs were lower there as well.China’s growing e-bike industry faces duties not only from the US but also the European Union, which slapped provisional anti-dumping tariffs of 22 to 84 percent on Chinese-made e-bikes in July, alleging Chinese companies benefited from cut-rate aluminium and other state subsidies.The state support Chinese companies receive is key to the Trump administration’s case in taxing Chinese goods, but Hl shows how companies may continue to benefit even after shifting some of their production overseas. Government subsidies, including millions of yuan to “enhance company competitiveness”, eclipsed H1’s profit during the first six months of the year, its filings show.Still the company went ahead and bought an operating factory in Vietnam. Lee noted they had transferred mass production of aluminium forks and steering parts to the new plant from their factory in Tianjin.He did not know if it would lead to job cuts in China. © 2018 AFP Trump calls on Apple to move production from China to US Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Facebook says COO Sandberg asked for info on Soros

Zuckerberg said Facebook stopped using Definers the day the NYT story was published.Zuckerberg has defended Sandberg, saying she “is a really important part of this company and is leading a lot of the efforts for a lot of the biggest issues we have.”Facebook has stumbled from one mess to another this year as it grapples with continuing fallout from Russia’s use of the platform to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election, the Cambridge Analytica scandal in which user data was harnessed in a bid to help candidate Donald Trump, and a huge security breach involving millions of accounts.

Warning issued over attacks on internet infrastructure

Posted On Jul 18 2019 by

first_img So-called DNSpionage attacks have the potential to allow hackers to impersonate key websites and disrupt global internet traffic The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) declared after an emergency meeting “an ongoing and significant risk” to key parts of the infrastructure that affects the domains on which websites reside.”They are going after the internet infrastructure itself,” ICANN chief technology officer David Conrad told AFP.”There have been targeted attacks in the past, but nothing like this.”The attacks could date back to 2017 but have sparked growing concerns from security researchers in recent weeks, which prompted the special meeting of ICANN.The malicious activity targets the Domain Name System or DNS which routes traffic to intended online destinations.ICANN specialists and others say these attacks have a potential to snoop on data along the way, sneakily send the traffic elsewhere or enable the attackers to impersonate or “spoof” critical websites.”There isn’t a single tool to address this,” Conrad said, as ICANN called for an overall hardening of web defenses.US authorities issued a similar warning last month about the DNS attacks.”This is roughly equivalent to someone lying to the post office about your address, checking your mail, and then hand delivering it to your mailbox,” the US Department of Homeland Security said in a recent cybersecurity alert.”Lots of harmful things could be done to you (or the senders) depending on the content of that mail.”Middle East targetsSo-called “DNSpionage” attacks might date back to at least 2017, according to FireEye senior manager of cyber espionage analysis Ben Read.The list of targets included website registrars and internet service providers, particularly in the Middle East. Similar attacks took place in Europe and other parts of the Middle East, with targets including governments, intelligence services, police, airlines, and the oil industry, cybersecurity specialists said.”You definitely need knowledge of how the internet works and you have to handle a lot of traffic being directed to you,” Meyers said of the DNSpionage hackers.”With that access, they could temporarily break portions of how the internet works. They chose to intercept and spy on folks.”The attack itself is technically simple, but its scope and targeting of internet service providers along with large government entities made it “a big deal,” according to Meyers.Digital signaturesICANN is putting out word to website and online traffic handlers to ramp up security or leave users vulnerable to being tricked into trusting the wrong online venues.The organization urged broader implementation of DNSSEC technology that adds digital signatures that act as virtual seals of sorts to expose when data moving online has been tampered with.DNSSEC can also prevent internet users from being misdirected from intended websites, according to ICANN.”It aims to assure that Internet users reach their desired online destination by helping to prevent so-called ‘man in the middle’ attacks where a user is unknowingly re-directed to a potentially malicious site,” ICANN said in the release.Part of the challenge to keeping the internet infrastructure safe is that website owners don’t always grasp the imperative guarding against wily hackers, according to Conrad.”We want to make sure people understand what it means to own a domain name and put it on the internet,” Conrad said.”Because, all of your customers are only as secure as you are.” © 2019 AFP “We’ve seen primarily targeting of email names and passwords,” Read said.”There is evidence that it is coming out of Iran and being done in support of Iran.”DNSpionage hackers appeared intent on stealing account credentials, such as email passwords, in Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates, according to Adam Meyers, vice president of intelligence at CrowdStrike cyber security firm.

How Europe is faring on renewable energy targets

first_img Citation: How Europe is faring on renewable energy targets (2019, March 31) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-03-europe-faring-renewable-energy.html Each member state has its own renewable energy goal, based on its situation and potential, ranging from 10 to 49 percent.While 11 countries in the bloc have already surpassed their targets, others are lagging behind, according to EU statistics authority Eurostat.With the target for 2030 at 32 percent, Eurostat says: “While the EU as a whole is on course to meet its 2020 targets, some member states will need to make additional efforts to meet their obligations.”Sweden: champion of EuropeEurope’s renewable energy leaders are Nordic countries: Sweden, Finland and Denmark.Since 2012 more than half of the total energy consumed in Sweden has come from renewable sources, according to the International Energy Agency.This is due in large part to hydroelectric power, which provides more than 40 percent of the country’s electricity output. Swedes heat themselves mainly with biofuels. Denmark—a small, flat country long dependent on energy imports—now gets 43 percent of its electricity from wind power after investment starting in the late 1970s when it began phasing out coal plants. The Netherlands: lagging behindLuxembourg and the Netherlands are the EU countries with the lowest consumption of renewables, reaching 6.4 percent and 6.6 percent respectively.Despite its investment in offshore wind farms, the Netherlands is the furthest from reaching its targets. Yet, with a part of the country lying below sea level, it is particularly vulnerable to the consequences of climate change.In 2015 the Netherlands was one of the first countries to rule on a climate case, with a court ordering the state to reduce national greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25 percent by 2020.France: nuclear preferenceInspired by the Dutch decision, four environmental NGOs in March sued the French government for failing to uphold its commitments on fighting climate change.In 2017 France reached 16.3 percent of energy consumption from renewables, compared to its 23 percent target for 2020.Wood and hydropower are the main sources of green energy in France, ahead of biofuels. France has long preferred investment in nuclear power, from which it gets more than 70 percent of its electricity.The government has committed to closing 14 nuclear reactors by 2035 and shutting down four still-active coal power plants by 2022, on condition that it can guarantee secure electricity supplies.Germany: between coal and windGermany’s renewable energy, which comes mainly from wind and solar power, reached just 15.5 percent in 2017, while its 2020 objective is set at 18 percent. Coal remains the cornerstone of its energy policy, in part due to the government’s decision in 2011 to shut down all nuclear plants by 2022.Coal accounts for 37 percent of Germany’s electricity production and more than 30 percent of its heating.Europe’s biggest economy intends to progressively phase out coal in order to respect its commitment to reducing polluting emissions.
