Acqua in bottiglia, Legambiente: ‘Regioni svendono il bene comune a multinazionali’

Un mercato che non conosce crisi, nonostante sia un bene che si trovi gratis, e tutto a vantaggio delle industrie che pagano tassi di concessione irrisori, nonostante sia un bene pubblico. È l’acqua in bottiglia, un business che in Italia supera il giro d’affari di 2,3 miliardi di euro in mano a 156 società e 296 diversi marchi, benché le aziende imbottigliatrici paghino in media solo un euro ogni 1.000 litri, ovvero, appena 1 millesimo di euro per litro imbottigliato. È il quadro che esce dall’indagine annuale di Legambiente e Altreconomia, Regioni imbottigliate, che conferma il trend degli anni precedenti: i canoni … L’articolo Acqua in bottiglia, Legambiente: ‘Regioni svendono il bene comune a multinazionali’ sembra essere il primo su Made In Italy.

Matteograssi introduces “Cuoio”: a collection that talks about Family (designer Stefano Grassi)

There are scents and images that walk us through our lives, they shape us and define who we become. Stefano Grassi grew up in the family factory, his activity as a designer is strictly bound to the smell of coach hide and to the images of leather processing, a field where Matteograssi is well-known as a worldwide leader. During the last edition of Salone del Mobile held in Milan, Stefano Grassi has come across the perfect way of expressing, through his collections, the true material and structural value of coach hide, speculating with forms and managing to defuse the severity of such a prestigious and graceful material. That is how the collection “Cuoio”comes to life, declined into the variants Sir and Lady and T-Cuoio low tables. A unique collection where the coach hide  assumes the function of a case: a cradle that harbours the sitting without having to employ the use of an additional material. A brand new Innovation for Matteograssi, is the chance to choose between leather and fabric covering, demonstrating how according to the kind of environment it is possible to combine leather with linen and any other natural fabric of exceptional making. If Sir can be considered a modern and elegant revisiting of the traditional sofa, Lady can only embody its most romantic version: a luxury lair to share moments of relaxation and comfort. Traditional techniques and deep knowledge of materials find in Stefano Grassi’s collection a vehicle to testify once again the quality and professionalism of a company – Matteograssi – which has always promoted perfection values, quality and ability to find, in a bygone and ,if we want to, mainstream material, resources to conceive, experiment and provide a brand new design of unmatched charm.

Battle against bee blood eating Acari

Battle against bee blood eating Acari Mexico is one of the top five bee producing countries worldwide and the second in exportation. However, the beekeepers can see their production affected by the attack of a parasite, the Varroa acari, which feeds on hemolymph of the bees. via ScienceDaily: Agriculture and Food News: Nov. 25, 2013 — Mexico is one of the top five bee producing countries worldwide and the second in exportation. However, the beekeepers can see their production affected by the attack of a parasite, the Varroa acari, which feeds on hemolymph of the bees.Currently, the control methods employed are of synthetic origin, but face the main problem of generating resistance by the acari, which reduces its effectiveness; besides, is not rare to find traces of it in the bee wax and honey.According to research by the National Institute of Forest, Agricultural and Livestock Research (INIFAP), not treating the colonies infested by Varroa can lead to a 65 per cent less production in comparison to colonies where the acari is controlled.Seeing this disjunctive, researchers from the INIFAP talked to the beekeepers about the organic control of the pest employing powdered thymol, which is easy to employ and cheaper, the acari doesn’t develop resistance to it nor it generates residue on honey or bee wax if generating appropriately.Miguel Arechavaleta Velasco, head of research at INIFAP, explains that Varroa is an acari that feed on bee hemolymph; like a tick, it produces a disease in the colony called varroasis that can kill entire hives, being the main problem that beekeepers face worldwide.”Among the organic product that we have studied, thymol has given encouraging results; it’s an essential oil obtain from thyme. There are commercial thymol based products for Varroa control, but we developed a different application form, resulting easier and cheaper for the beekeeper”:The proposed method consists in using powdered thymol mixed with powdered sugar. The mixture is spread in tin foil and placed in hives 90 days before bloom begins, “The most part of the honey produced in Mexico is exported, mostly to Europe, where health standards are very high, mainly concerning chemical residues. Hence the importance of Varroa being controled organically,” says Arechavaleta Velasco.Is feasible to apply in any beekeeping region in Mexico, and is directed not only to the production of honey, pollen and royal jelly, but also to those dedicated to crop pollination and queen bee breeding.The researcher specialized in bee genetics points out that the developed technology was recently published on INIFAP, “we are in process of validation using field tests with beekeepers, and based on the results obtained we will distribute it massively.” For more info: Battle against bee blood eating Acari ScienceDaily: Agriculture and Food News Battle against bee blood eating Acari L’articolo Battle against bee blood eating Acari sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Infant galaxies merging near ‘cosmic dawn’

Infant galaxies merging near ‘cosmic dawn’ Astronomers using the combined power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope and NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have discovered a far-flung trio of primitive galaxies nestled inside an enormous blob of primordial gas nearly 13 billion light-years from Earth. via ScienceDaily: Top Science News: Nov. 21, 2013 — Astronomers using the combined power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope and NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have discovered a far-flung trio of primitive galaxies nestled inside an enormous blob of primordial gas nearly 13 billion light-years from Earth.”This exceedingly rare triple system, seen when the Universe was only 800 million years old, provides important insights into the earliest stages of galaxy formation during a period known as ‘Cosmic Dawn,’ when the Universe was first bathed in starlight,” said Richard Ellis, the Steele Professor of Astronomy at the California Institute of Technology and member of the research team. “Even more interesting, these galaxies appear poised to merge into a single massive galaxy, which could eventually evolve into something akin to the Milky Way.”Researchers first detected this object, which appeared to be a giant bubble of hot, ionized gas, in 2009. Dubbed Himiko (after a legendary queen of ancient Japan), it is nearly 10 times larger than typical galaxies of that era and comparable in size to our own Milky Way. Subsequent observations with the Spitzer Space Telescope suggested that Himiko might represent a single galaxy, which would make it uncharacteristically massive for that period of the early Universe.”The new observations revealed that, rather than a single galaxy, Himiko harbors three distinct, bright sources, whose intense star formation is heating and ionizing this giant cloud of gas,” said Masami Ouchi, an associate professor at the University of Tokyo who led the international team of astronomers from Japan and the United States.Areas of such furious star formation should be brimming with heavy elements such as carbon, silicon, and oxygen. These elements are forged in the nuclear furnaces of massive, short-lived stars like those bursting into life inside the three galaxies detected by Hubble. At the end of their relatively brief lives, these stars explode as supernovas, seeding the intergalactic medium with a fine dust of heavy elements.”When this dust is heated by ultraviolet radiation from massive newborn stars, the dust then re-radiates at radio wavelengths,” remarked Kotaro Kohno, a member of the team also with the University of Tokyo. “Such radiation is not detected in Himiko.””Surprisingly, observations with ALMA revealed a complete absence of the signal from carbon, which is rapidly synthesized in young stars. Given the sensitivity of ALMA, this is truly remarkable,” said Ouchi. “Exactly how this intense activity can be reconciled with the primitive chemical composition of Himiko is quite puzzling.”The astronomers speculate that a large fraction of the gas in Himiko could be primordial, a mixture of the light elements hydrogen and helium, which were created in the Big Bang. … For more info: Infant galaxies merging near ‘cosmic dawn’ ScienceDaily: Top Science News Infant galaxies merging near ‘cosmic dawn’ L’articolo Infant galaxies merging near ‘cosmic dawn’ sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Preventing antibiotic resistance in hospital textiles

Preventing antibiotic resistance in hospital textiles “Antibiotic resistance threatens a return to the pre-antibiotic era”. The World Health Organization uses this strong expression when referring to a phenomenon that is rapidly spreading: the increasing resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobial medicines, such as antibiotics. WHO estimates indicate that the excess mortality due to resistant bacterial hospital infections exceeds 25,000 every year, in Europe. via ScienceDaily: Top Health News: Nov. 18, 2013 — “Antibiotic resistance threatens a return to the pre-antibiotic era.” The World Health Organisation uses this strong expression when referring to a phenomenon that is rapidly spreading: the increasing resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobial medicines, such as antibiotics. WHO estimates indicate that the excess mortality due to resistant bacterial hospital infections exceeds 25,000 every year, in Europe.”Nowadays, if you acquire an infection in a hospital, it is extremely rare for the infecting bacterium to not be resistant to multiple antibiotics,” says Australian microbiologist Harold Stokes, research director at the ithree institute, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).The trouble is that antibacterial resistance is not fully understood. Recent research has shed some light into the resistance mechanism. Jordi Garcia-Ojalvo and Pau Rué, researchers previously based at the Polytechnical University of Catalunia, in Barcelona, Spain, where they were members of a team that developed a 2-D model of the biofilms formed byBacillus subtilis, a soil bacterium which forms spores to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. “When the colony of bacteria is under stress,” says Rué, “wrinkle structures in the biofilm conveying resistance to the colony are formed.”The formation of these structures is initiated by massive spatially self-organised cell death, they observed. “With our simulation, we demonstrated that these patterns result from interaction between extracellular matrix production and cell death,”Rué says, adding: “without a matrix, cells die all together, no wrinkles are formed and no resistance occurs.” This finding could therefore help understand how bacteria develop resistance to external agents.There are many attempts to tackle bacteria resistance. One team focuses on developing antibacterial textiles, for example. Bulgarian born chemist Tzanko Tzanov, also from the Polytechnical University of Catalunia, has developed a technology to make sanitary fabric aseptic. This strategy is based on the use of a combination of zinc nanoparticles, enzymes and ultrasounds. … For more info: Preventing antibiotic resistance in hospital textiles ScienceDaily: Top Health News Preventing antibiotic resistance in hospital textiles L’articolo Preventing antibiotic resistance in hospital textiles sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

Social media brings academic journals to general readers

Social media brings academic journals to general readers A study recently published shows that a handful of academic journals have successfully leveraged social media to reach many times the readers of the journals themselves. But the majority of journals have yet to embrace social media and so lag behind professional organizations and patient advocacy groups in their ability to disseminate information in a culturally relevant way. via ScienceDaily: Living Well News: Nov. 14, 2013 — A University of Colorado Cancer Center study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Dermatology shows that a handful of academic journals have successfully leveraged social media to reach many times the readers of the journals themselves. But the majority of journals have yet to embrace social media and so lag behind professional organizations and patient advocacy groups in their ability to disseminate information in a culturally relevant way.”If a journal wants to educate people, this is a way to do it,” says Robert Dellavalle, MD, PhD, MSPH, investigator at the CU Cancer Center and associate professor of dermatology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dellavalle also manages the Facebook page for the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.Fittingly, Dellavalle worked on the project remotely, collaborating with a handful of medical students now included as co-authors.The study evaluated the social media presences of 102 dermatology journals and also dermatology organizations and patient-advocacy groups. The social media followings of the most popular patient advocacy networks were about double the followings of the most popular professional organizations, which were about double the followings of the most popular journals. For example, at the time of study the Skin Cancer Foundation had 20,119 Facebook followers, the Dermatology Network had 11,251 Facebook followers, and Dellavalle’s Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology Facebook page had 5,286 followers.That said, “you look at the New England Journal of Medicine and they’re getting hundreds of thousands of reads through their social media presence. They’re not getting nearly that many reads on the journal itself,” Dellavalle says.The study also showed that more prominent journals tend to have stronger social media followings. “Especially in terms of Facebook followings, the journals with the highest impact factors have the most followers,” Dellavalle says.At the time of study, the New England Journal of Medicine had 439,022 Facebook followers. However, as good as the leading journals undoubtedly are in creating and managing social media presences, there’s a steep decline in the usage and success of lesser-known journals. Of the 102 dermatology journals studied, only 12.7 percent had a Facebook presence and 13.7 percent had a Twitter presence.”Some journals haven’t recognized the potential of fully embracing popular social networks,” Dellavalle says. … For more info: Social media brings academic journals to general readers ScienceDaily: Living Well News Social media brings academic journals to general readers L’articolo Social media brings academic journals to general readers sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.

A Better Body After Baby

A Better Body After Baby I thought pregnancy gave me license to eat whatever I wanted—and so I did. My downfall: Mexican food, along with whatever fast food my husband brought home. Since I’m a surgeon who spends my days in elastic-waistband scrubs, it was hard to gauge my gain. During my last trimester, I noticed that my face, arms and legs had expanded along with my belly. By the time I gave birth to my daughter, Ava Gabrielle, at the end of March 2012, I had put on 58 pounds. Good-bye, muumuus Two months after giving birth, I signed up for Weight Watchers online. Its point system (I allowed myself 26 daily points) helped me make better food choices. I stopped scarfing down plates of 11-point fries in favor of healthier picks, such as zucchini tots (3 points) and shrimp-and-avocado salads (5 points). With my new eating habits, the baby weight fell off. By November, I had reached my 146-pound goal. Being a size 8 again felt amazing, but I wasn’t satisfied. So I set a new goal: getting back to my wedding weight. Next up: bikini Until I stopped breast-feeding one year after giving birth, exercise had been nonexistent. When I was finally ready to sweat, I forced myself out of bed at 5:30 a.m. four to five times a week to run. My first few were horrible. But I stuck with it, eventually trading my run-walk intervals for steady 45-minute jogs. I also began working with the trainer who had whipped me into shape for my wedding. By summer I had erased 11 pounds, was at my 2010 “I do” weight and even fit into my wedding dress! A few weeks later, on our childless Caribbean vacation, I rocked my bikini. It was like being on our beachy honeymoon again—bridal body and all. My Fit Celeb Inspiration: Beyoncé She embraces her curves and she had a baby almost two years ago and is on tour right now showing off her flawless figure in skimpy outfits! My Sweet, Savory Indulgence: Peanut M&M’s I can find a bag in any store. The peanuts curb my salt cravings, while the chocolate adds a nice hint of sweetness. My Favorite Healthy Website: skinnytaste.com I am completely addicted to this website. The blogger, Gina Homolka, posts healthy recipes daily and even includes the number of Weight Watchers points for each meal. Some of my favorites: Garlic Shrimp in Coconut Milk with Tomatoes and Cilantro, Turkey-Stuffed Peppers and Pumpkin Cupcakes. It shows that you can enjoy good food and still eat well. My Exercise Mantra: Get Fine, Stay Fine My trainer said this to me during a training session once, and I thought it was so corny, but it kind of stuck with me. Plus, it’s the truth—you don’t do all this work to just fall off again. via Diet & Fitness – Health.com: For more info: A Better Body After Baby Diet & Fitness – Health.com A Better Body After Baby L’articolo A Better Body After Baby sembra essere il primo su My Biologica.
