New diagnostic criteria were introduced for neuromyelitis optica, now called neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, which is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system that is sometimes mistaken for multiple sclerosis.

An international consensus panel, chaired by Mayo Clinic neurologists Dean Wingerchuk, M.D., and Brian Weinshenker, M.D., reviewed the medical literature and recent scientific discoveries relating to NMOSD to develop new diagnostic criteria. 

NMOSD can affect the optic nerves, brain stem, spinal cord and brain. It can cause a spectrum of symptoms, including visual loss, paralysis and episodes of persistent hiccups, nausea and vomiting. Detection of aquaporin-4 immunoglobulin G antibodies (AQP4-IgG), using a blood test that was developed by Mayo Clinic investigators, is highly specific for NMOSD and facilitates the diagnosis. Some patients have the key features of NMOSD, but do not have detectable antibodies. The new criteria address both possibilities.

Some differences between the old criteria and the new include:
- Diagnosis was not possible by identifying a single clinical symptom. Now it is.
- The 2006 criteria also required a diagnosis of optic neuritis and myelitis; whereas, the new 2015 criteria require neither if an AQP4-IgG blood test proves positive.

We discovered the massless form of an electron... This sounds as if it possibly could hold its weight... 😉😀
A new theory says dark matter acts remarkably similar to pions, subatomic particles known to science since the 1930s.

HEY, CHURCH ADMINS! Lost faith in your congregation? Fear of God and threats of hell not working for you the way it used to? You know what they say, "God helps those who help themselves!" So, help yourself and get CHURCHIX - facial recognition software!!

[Yeah, it's science but God created scientists and programmers too!]

Easy to use. Simply upload a database of photos of all your members. Tell them it's for posterity or something. If you already have security cams in place, those can be used to track who's showing up and who isn't.  Low attendance means less money in the basket! Manage your members now!

Kat Note: I shit you not. This is a real thing http://churchix.com/

A super-dense, spinning star punched a hole right through its stellar neighbor, carving off a giant cloud of dust and ejecting it away at nearly 15 percent the speed of light, images from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory reveal.

To Weed Out Protesters at Last Night’s Event, The Satanic Temple Had Attendees Transfer Their Souls to Satan. Funny stuff.

It is hard to imagine, in today's world, that the imaginary deity xtians follow could have such an devastating cognitive effect. Fear based control, not so good for humanity.

~ Some first results from the new, higher-energy Large Hadron Collider ~ [The Guardian] :: The European Physical Society High Energy Physics conference is taking place now in Vienna. This is the first big chance for the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to show off what they have managed to extract from the new data they have recorded since 3 June, when the LHC restarted particle collisions after a two-year break. The new collisions are at a higher energy - 13 TeV compared to the previous record of 8 TeV. Since we are bumping up against the speed-of-light barrier, this means the speed of the protons increases from 299 792 449 metres per second to 299 792 454 m/s (the speed of light is 299 792 458 m/s). An increase of only 5 m/s, which doesn’t sound terribly important. But speed is the wrong way to judge the significance of the increase. :: #physics
On 3 June this year, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN began delivering particle collisions at an energy 63% higher than previously acheived. This week in Vienna, first physics results were presented. Here are some highlights

"So the researchers wondered: What if lanosterol helped prevent or reduce cataracts? The team tested a lanosterol-laden solution in three separate experiments. First, they used human lens cells to test how effectively lanosterol shrank lab models of cataracts. They saw a significant decrease. Then, they progressed to rabbits suffering from cataracts. At the end of the 6-day experiment, 11 of 13 rabbits had gone from having severe or significant cataracts to mild cataracts or no cataracts at all."

It's called "Muslim Logic" - if you provoke someone, or annoy them, you are guilty when you are murdered.

CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE PREVENTION

Advocate for educating adults and children about how to help prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Statistically, in Canada & USA, 40% of abusers are family members. 95% of of abusers are known and trusted by the child and family, not "stranger danger". Coaches, teachers, babysitters. 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys have been/will be sexually abused. Prevention classes are needed throughout the entire education system.

Paedophiles always use fear tactics on children to keep them quite. Most survivors never tell, it is up to adults to open the lines of communication to assure them safety, support and services to recover. It is important to talk to children about sexual abuse, emphasizing unconditional support for your children, no matter what happens, they can tell you anything.
