Des scientifiques créent un rayon tracteur pour attraper des objets avec du

first_imgDes scientifiques créent un rayon tracteur pour attraper des objets avec du sonLes ondes peuvent déplacer des objets, mais est-il possible de le faire en sens inverse de leur propagation ? Une équipe écossaise a mis au point un véritable rayon tracteur acoustique capable de déplacer des cibles un million de fois plus grandes qu’avant.L’arme préférée des aliens kidnappeurs de vaches bientôt mise au point ? La science-fiction connait de très nombreuses occurrences du fameux rayon tracteur. Il est présenté comme un faisceau lumineux qui permet de soulever et d’attirer à soi divers objets. Le principal écueil à cette innovation repose sur le fait que, dans l’immense majorité des cas, si la lumière peut déplacer de faibles quantités de matière elle ne le fait que dans sa direction de propagation, et non pas en sens inverse. Toutefois, une équipe internationale, centrée sur l’université écossaise de Dundee, a tout de même réussi à fabriquer un rayon tracteur, en faisant appel à un autre procédé : les ondes acoustiques. Les chercheurs sont parvenus à déplacer des objets d’une taille de l’ordre du centimètre, des cibles qui s’avèrent un million de fois plus grandes que celles qu’il avait jusqu’alors été possible d’attirer. Ces travaux ont été publiés le 2 mai dans la revue Physical Review Letters.De nombreuses applications médicalesÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cette prouesse est possible grâce à un phénomène lumineux découvert dans les années 70 : la pression négative de radiation. Elle a pour effet d’attirer des éléments microscopiques de matière vers la partie la plus intense de l’onde. Appliquée aux ondes acoustiques, cette pression agit avec efficacité sur des objets triangulaires mais a plus de mal avec les objets plats.Pour ce qui est de son application future à bord d’un vaisseau spatial, un problème de taille se pose. Les ondes sonores ne se propagent en effet pas dans le vide, il restera donc impossible de capturer et d’attirer un vaisseau ennemi en plein vol intersidéral grâce à ce principe. D’autres utilisations restent néanmoins possibles, en particulier dans le domaine médical. Les chercheurs espèrent s’en servir pour manipuler des cellules de manière précise et individuelle. Comme le mentionne IFLscience, cela pourrait également permettre d’opérer des caillots, calculs, kystes et tumeurs par ultrasons, ce qui ouvre la porte à des procédures non invasives, c’est-à-dire qui ne nécessitent pas d’ouvrir le patient. De quoi largement consoler les fans de science-fiction.Le 18 mai 2014 à 19:02 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Newly discovered parasite gets presidential nod

first_img Flatworm/Blood Fluke (Baracktrema obamai)1/7Discovered by Thomas R. Platt while studying turtles in Malaysia. Platt is also a 5th cousin, twice removed, to Obama.<><> Earlier this week President Obama had a parasite named after him. This might seem a bit harsh, but it’s really an honor to have anything in the realm of science and nature named after you. And this isn’t the first time his name has been given to a parasitic creature!In April 2012 he earned his first honor by way of a hairworm discovered in Kenya, birthplace of Obama’s father. Our President has now lent his name to a tiny flatworm found in Malaysia. The blood fluke, called B. obamai, resides in the blood vessels of the lungs of freshwater turtles.Last year biologist and turtle expert Thomas Platt discovered the parasite and in no way meant this as an insult when he chose to use Obama’s name. Platt has named many of the species he’s discovered after family, friends, and even colleagues. He told the press he usually uses the names of people he greatly admires, hence the President.Obama has long been an advocate for conservation and committed to science, research, and STEM programs. In this community having an organism named after you is quite an achievement.Digging further I learned the President has had several discovered species named after him. What a compliment! Below you find all the amazing critters he’s lent his iconic name to.last_img read more

Is Thalapathy Vijay on a moviesigning spree

first_imgA look of Vijay in his hit movie Sarkar.PR HandoutVijay, who is known for taking his own time for approving films, seems to have come across a few interesting scripts. In the process, the Tamil actor is rumoured to have given nods to a few films. It means the actor will be working non-stop for the next 15-18 months.The Thuppakki actor gets regularly approached by many directors, that include leading filmmakers, but Vijay approves the scripts based on the merits of the story. As a result, young filmmakers, without much experience, too get an opportunity to direct him. Yet sometimes Thalapathy trusts the directors on their past work. Coming to the latest development, after wrapping up Sarkar, Vijay met many filmmakers and has now approved three stories, say rumour mills. The first film to go on floors, after completing his sports drama with Atlee Kumar, is Mohan Raja-directorial flick.Vijay himself is funding the project for the action thriller. He is expected to team up with ace filmmaker Shankar, whose Indian 2 starring Kamal Haasan has been put on back burner. There are also possibilities of collaborating with Vamsi Paidipally for the Tamil remake of Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi.Vijay’s Latest Film Currently, the actor is busy with the shooting of his latest film, presently referred to as Thalapathy 63. He plays the role of a footballer in the flick, which has Nayanthara playing the female lead.last_img read more

Entanglement between macroscopic objects generated by dissipation

first_img More information: Hanna Krauter, et al. “Entanglement Generated by Dissipation and Steady State Entanglement of Two Macroscopic Objects.” Physical Review Letters 107, 080503 (2011) DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.107.080503 This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Entanglement can help in classical communication Citation: Entanglement between macroscopic objects generated by dissipation (2011, August 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-08-entanglement-macroscopic-dissipation.html (PhysOrg.com) — When generating entanglement between two objects, physicists typically try to minimize the objects’ interactions with the environment, since this interaction causes decoherence. But contrary to this thinking, scientists in a new study have experimentally demonstrated that dissipation caused by interaction with the environment can continuously generate entanglement between two macroscopic objects (two ensembles of cesium atoms containing about 1 trillion atoms all together). By combining the dissipative mechanism with continuous measurements, the researchers could achieve steady state entanglement between the two atomic ensembles for up to an hour.center_img Copyright 2011 PhysOrg.com. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of PhysOrg.com. Explore further The scientists, Professor Eugene Polzik from the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University and his coauthors, have published their study on the new approach to generating entanglement in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters. As the scientists explain, it is the first demonstration of purely dissipative entanglement generation, and could have applications in quantum information processing and other areas.“We have generated entanglement which is ready-to-use at any unspecified instant in time,” Polzik told PhysOrg.com. “This should be a useful feature for applications where complex entangled networks are required. But perhaps even more important is that we have made the first step in showing how entanglement can be generated by dissipation. With this demonstration, other proposals which use dissipation for quantum computing and communication will hopefully attract the attention of experimentalists.”The study builds on previous research over the past few years that has predicted that dissipation that is common to two systems can drive the systems into an entangled state. The idea of using dissipation rather than coherence to generate entanglement represents a paradigm shift in the field, although demonstrating it has proven too difficult until now.To generate entanglement, the scientists placed the two cesium gas samples in 2.2-cm cubic containers in a magnetic field half a meter apart from each other. Through the combination of controlling the magnetic field and using a laser to perform optical pumping of the atoms, the scientists could engineer dissipation between the atomic ensembles and polarized vacuum modes of the electromagnetic field, which provide a common environment.“In the past, dissipation was always a process occurring independently in each of the atoms,” Polzik explained. “In our experiment the dissipation was engineered to be a collective process for both atomic ensembles.“A general feature which leads to generation of quantum superpositions and entanglement is indistinguishability of two or more paths towards the final state,” he said. “In other words, the absence of the so-called ‘which-way information.’ We engineered dissipation for the two atomic ensembles in such a way that it was impossible to tell whether photons which led to dissipation were emitted by the first or the second ensemble. The quantum interference of these two dissipation paths is the key reason for the generation of entanglement.”In the first series of experiments, the scientists generated entanglement in a quasisteady state that lasted for 0.015 seconds, which is several times longer than the best previous results for measurement-induced entanglement. The scientists also experimented with keeping the optical pumping field on throughout the entanglement generation period. Since this process is incoherent, the researchers were surprised to find that the pumping did not suppress entanglement, but rather increased the entanglement duration to 0.04 seconds. Finally, by using the results from continuous measurements on the system, and combining these results with dissipative processes, the researchers could generate steady state entanglement for up to an hour.By demonstrating that dissipation can be used to generate entanglement, the results of the study present a new entanglement method that could have several potential advantages compared with coherence-based methods. For instance, dissipation-generated entanglement can exist, in principle, for an arbitrarily long time and does not require the system to be prepared in a particular input state. These advantages make dissipative methods attractive for use in quantum information protocols by allowing for long-range, high-quality steady state entanglement.last_img read more

Behind the scenes at the UN

first_img Facebook Comments UNITED NATIONS — Much like the schizophrenic reality of the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly itself, this week’s conclave of world leaders in New York has presented two contrasting narratives for the Syria-Iraq war and the current moment of upheaval in the Middle East. One, the polished speeches of leaders before the cameras, follows a script, presents its best face, and plays to the hopes of constituents back home. The other, like the snarling traffic jams, the curt, hurried back hall of conversations of the senior officials straining to do the diplomatic heavy lifting, and the late-night critiques offered up in hotel bars, is more ragged, grounded in the truth, and therefore unsettling.The first, more polished, view is the story you would get if you listened only to presidents and foreign ministers speaking of clear goals, coalitions knit together by common ideals, and, ultimately, a remade, safer, more stable world. While the other view, the story you only hear in conversations that take place on background or off the record, reveals that even behind well-intentioned initiatives there can be the kind of delusions, dubious motivations, divisions, and duplicity that seem likely to make bad situations worse. The question now is what factors will tip the balance so that the story told (and sold) in press releases and talking points comes to pass — rather than the one that led a former cabinet official from U.S. President Barack Obama’s own party to say to me this week with regard to the White House’s recent conduct of foreign policy in the war-torn region, “Things are bad, very bad.”The duality of this particular moment, the tension between the good and the terrible, is so stark it evokes the light-versus-darkness heart of the Zoroastrian philosophy of the Yazidi people who, once upon a time, so long ago it seems hard to remember, helped usher in this latest chapter of Mideast war. (Their crisis atop Mount Sinjar was only a month ago, in case you had forgotten.)This tension was reflected in Obama’s remarks to the General Assembly when he said, “We come together at a crossroads between war and peace; between disorder and integration; between fear and hope.” As one of my colleagues, Elias Groll, indicated during his live-blogging of the speech for Foreign Policy, it’s a perspective that is far removed from Obama’s assertion of just 12 months earlier when he said, “The world is more stable than it was five years ago.”What shocks and spasms we have seen in this past year or so: a United States that is about to take action in Syria, then one that could not without congressional approval and then later said maybe it didn’t need that approval after all; an administration arguing for the elimination of the standing authorization to use military force in Iraq and then just months later using it to justify an action it vowed it would never take; the United States hemming and hawing and disappointing allies from Eastern Europe to the Persian Gulf and then one acting boldly and celebrating the coalition with which it went to war. Who knew that the pivot the Obama administration would be remembered for was swiveling back to policies it opposed, rejected, and had turned away from just months or years before? U.S. President Barack Obama speaks with Secretary of State John Kerry during a U.N. Security Council summit meeting on foreign terrorist fighters during the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York, on Sept. 24, 2014. Saul Loeb/AFPBut if you listened to Obama’s passionate and well-delivered speech (and those of other leaders), you certainly could not help it if a bit of optimism brightened up your worldview. The president was powerful and clear about issues on which in the past he had been accused of hesitancy and vagueness. He was tough on IS and extremism, saying, “No God condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning, no negotiation, with this brand of evil.” He took on Russian President Vladimir Putin, promised aid to combat Ebola, and to fight climate change. He was encouraging on the Iran nuclear talks and even took a moment to reflect on America’s own flaws as manifest in the shooting and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. In closing, he offered a resoluteness many have long hoped for from this administration: “At this crossroads, I can promise you that the United States of America will not be distracted or deterred from what must be done. We are heirs to a proud legacy of freedom, and we’re prepared to do what is necessary to secure that legacy for generations to come.”Obama was not the only one promising a more positive view and hinting at a different shape of things to come. At a small breakfast for journalists, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani openly and deftly fielded questions on a wide range of subjects. While reports of the meeting emphasized his critique of the U.S. attacks on Syria as illegal, the real headline of the meeting was how little he mentioned those attacks. He commented on them pro forma, for a split second, then moved on to describe his hopes for U.S.-Iran nuclear talks. He said this week would be pivotal in those talks and that he hoped for a final deal before the current round’s deadline, which is approaching in just two months. He mentioned that a year ago in his phone conversation with Obama the two discussed how such a deal could usher in new communication and cooperation between the United States and Iran. He talked of rapprochement with regional neighbors despite enduring differences. He refused to be baited into focusing on U.S.-Iranian tensions on key issues.On Syria, Rouhani said the focus should be on “time-management skills,” meaning first defeating terrorists and then addressing a political solution — and when he mentioned the political solution he didn’t mention Syria’s president and erstwhile ally Bashar Assad by name. The vibe he gave off was that Iran might be open to a deal that saw Assad depart, provided all the people of Syria had a say (meaning that non-Sunni minorities might be able to form a coalition to keep the government out of Sunni hands). He even said that even if the deal he hoped for did not materialize there would be other ways to carry the dialogue forward. And this, too, was a far cry from a year earlier, when the big story was whether or not there would be the possibility of a handshake or a photo op between U.S. and Iranian leaders. Now there was an emphasis on a possible sea change, on the common goal of fighting terror.Taken with Obama’s remarks and those of other regional leaders, Rouhani’s comments seemed to suggest that a materially different Middle East was a possibility.No longer would the United States be acting alone trying to solve problems far from home. Burdens of combatting threats would be shared among local nations. The U.S.-Iran enmity that had been a defining factor in regional relations for decades might be ebbing. A nuclear deal might be in the offing. If there was not a complete transformation around the corner, perhaps pockets of material progress could lead to other areas of thaw — Rouhani mentioned economics, trade, combatting terror, and promoting regional stability. Groups like IS would not stand a chance against such resolve. Pluralism, instead of institutionalized sectarian bullying, would be promoted in places like Iraq. The Mideast would be safer, more secure, and more self-sufficient. America would be able to better address problems at home while leading with a lighter touch. Obama even suggested that the status quo would have to change for Gaza and the West Bank.But offstage, the discussions about all these issues had a dramatically different tone. It was doubtful and largely pessimistic. Cardboard cutouts made to resemble humans stand with nooses and blindfolds as demonstrators protest Iranian President Hassan Rouhani outside the United Nations on Sept. 25, 2014. Joshua Lott/AFPWhen Obama spoke of dismantling IS’s “network of death,” regional diplomats worried anew that he was overly focused on one terrorist group when they saw the problem as rapidly spreading violent extremism, a threat not just in Iraq and Syria but stretching from Mali to Nigeria to the Horn of Africa, from Libya to Egypt to Gaza to Syria and Iraq, from the Gulf to Afghanistan, Pakistan to China. They worried the U.S. president who was touting his own progress combatting al-Qaida had failed to realize that in overly focusing on one group he opened the door to a spread and proliferation of terror threats that made extremism far more prevalent and dangerous today than at any time in history. Obama spoke of tackling extremism but described it as a generational threat that the people of the region or “the civilized peoples of this world” must combat over time. To one listener from a country burdened by refugees from the war in Syria, this was “a sign that he thought this was too big a problem to deal with, that he was pushing it off into the future.” Another Arab diplomat said to me, “The president is trying to win by defining the problem as narrowly as possible. It makes it more manageable.” His point: IS is a big threat. We should be trying to destroy them, but to do that without addressing the bigger problem would be to repeat the mistake of overly focusing on core al-Qaida.Another concern buzzed about by senior diplomats is that the focus is on military action and on cutting off funds to the militants — which are essential — but there is very little confidence that what needs to be done to create a viable political solution in Iraq is going to happen. The new government is too much like the old. There is still no defense or interior minister. There is no confidence that anyone senior in the U.S. government will create the kind of real, quid pro quo, pay-as-you-go pressure on the Iraqis that the United States will help beat back the IS threat but only will keep doing it if real material progress in giving the Sunnis the voice they deserve happens. “Military victory creates a void,” I was told. “It has to be filled by something. If it is not a new political reality for Sunnis, we’ll solve nothing.”Recommended: Solís sidesteps Nicaragua border dispute in UN addressAnother area of worry is the fragility of the coalition. The number of coalition planes in the first Syria attack was relatively small — about a dozen and a half. Some members of the coalition snickered at the Qatari failure to actually deliver any ordinance during the attack. The joke was that they were afraid to blow up anything they might have previously paid for. In the longer term, there is a concern that if the United States is too narrowly focused on IS and won’t help with other perceived threats or won’t get tough enough with coalition members that are funding extremists, that this could fragment the coalition. So, too, could an Iran nuclear deal that appeared too soft or too much rapprochement between the United States and the Iranians at the seeming expense of relations with Gulf states.Further concerns centered on the viability of the coalition efforts. Weeks of bombing in Iraq had a relatively limited impact on IS. And the absence of a commitment to ground troops from any members of the coalition is seen as a huge weakness. Not only are ground troops required to hold land taken and keep it secure, but if the only ground troops are Iraqis taking advice from Iran, there is no certainty as to what they will do with the gains or whether local Sunnis will even see that as a victory. Similarly in Syria, bombing IS only opens the way for the Assad regime, the rightly reviled killers of 200,000, to grow ever stronger. (Among the regional diplomats with whom I spoke, this was seen as almost inevitable, as was Assad’s remaining in power for quite some time to come.) Other issues — possible Saudi succession issues, the vulnerability of Jordan, how Israel might react to an Iran deal, what might happen with Iran if the U.S. Congress scuttles a possible deal or seeks additional sanctions and how that might impact the tacit collaboration between the two countries in fighting IS, the potential of coming problems in Afghanistan or a further meltdown in Libya to add to the distractions, and the perceived untrustworthiness of coalition partners like Turkey and Qatar — also were mentioned in four days of conversations here about this.In short, if well-turned phrases defined history’s outcomes, we might be heading to a much better, safer Middle East. But if the men and women who are working behind the scenes to make that happen are to be believed, it is even more likely that further unrest and danger are on the horizon. We may enjoy early victories in the war against IS, we may even turn them back in the months ahead, but absent a commitment to address the broader, strategic issues with the same sense of urgency we are bringing to that fight — to battle for political gains as intently as we do those on the battlefield, or for leaders like Obama and Rouhani to devote as much of their attention to the work of the back room as they do to that at the podium — it looks like in the current Middle East there may be, in the famous words of the old song by Creedence Clearwater Revival, a bad moon rising. Rothkopf is CEO and editor of the FP Group.

Brace for heatwave conditions high risk of fires

first_imgRESIDENTS of the inland will experience heatwave conditions as a gradual temperature rise, combined with a lack of wind, will dominate the weather patterns for the beginning of next week, the met office said on Friday.The forestry department also warned of a high risk of fires and urged campers to be vigilant.According to the met office, a gradual temperature rise is expected over the weekend which will reach 39 degrees Celsius on Monday and Tuesday, four degrees higher than the seasonal average. Temperatures during the weekend are expected to rise to 37C and 38C, inland, a degree higher than Friday, the met office said. It added that this temperature increase will create conditions experienced in a heatwave.As of Wednesday, temperatures are expected to drop by one or two degrees, while for the rest of the month, the met office expects that temperatures will average around 38C inland.These temperature fluctuations however, are expected to affect only the inland.Temperatures in coastal areas are expected to remain at the same levels, between 30C and 33C.The health ministry issued advice on Friday to help members of the public cope with the high temperatures. It urged avoiding unnecessary sun exposure and heavy physical activities, dress lightly and wear hats and sunglasses.The public is also urged to drink plenty of water and avoid consuming alcoholic beverages, coffee, spices and rich food.“Particular attention should be paid to vulnerable groups such as infants, the elderly and pregnant women. If there is a new-born at home, it is best to dress it lightly. Ask the paediatrician for instructions on taking fluids,” the ministry said, adding that people with chronic health problems should also seek advice from their doctors.The forestry department too, issued an appeal on Friday urging the public to avoid actions that could cause fire, as there is increased risk due to high temperatures.The department said in an announcement that burning weeds, debris and waste is strictly prohibited, while the outdoor use of tools or agricultural machinery producing sparks or flames, such as with blades or in welding, should be avoided. If the use of such equipment is necessary, the announcement said, all measures should be taken and the nearest forestry or fire station should be notified.The forestry department also called on excursionists to avoid throwing matches and cigarette butts while in the countryside and that lighting a fire for barbecues is allowed only in the designated areas within organised picnic areas.To report a fire call 1407 or 112.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Ankara shows no willingness to resume settlement talks

first_imgThe objective of Turkish provocation is to create problems to Cyprus’  energy programme and to the EU’s effort to make the Eastern Mediterranean an alternative energy corridor for Europe, Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides has said.In an interview with the Athens News Agency, published on Sunday, Christodoulides said that Ankara’s conduct proves that it has no willingness to resume the settlement talks. At the same time, Christodoulides reiterated the readiness of the Greek Cypriot side to enter into dialogue.“President (Nicos) Anastasiades made it clear to the UN Secretary-General that if Turkey’s unlawful actions were lifted as well as any unacceptable claims on the part of the Turkish Cypriots, he is ready to promptly enter into dialogue on the internal aspects of the Cyprus problem and to participate in a new conference on Cyprus, provided that it has been properly prepared and that the five permanent members of the Security Council and the EU will be actively involved,” Christodoulides said.He added however, that if Turkey steps up provocations, the RoC will not be dragged into approaches that will lead away from the objective of reunifying Cyprus.Turkey’s recent actions in the Cypriot exclusive economic zone (EEZ), he said, confirm the correctness of the Nicosia-Athens approach on the necessity to respect the sovereignty and independence of Cyprus, to end the Treaty of Guarantee, intervention rights and the permanent presence of an army in Cyprus.“If Turkey is behaving in this way today, how would it behave if we accepted what it was calling for in relation to the issue of security and guarantees?” he asked.On the filing by the RoC of the geographic coordinates of delimitation of its EEZ with Turkey, Christodoulides said that once the political decision on such action is taken, the government will issue a public announcement “if we of course consider that this serves the interests of the Republic of Cyprus”.On the state fund for the management of future hydrocarbon reserves and the participation of Turkish Cypriots, the minister referred to the convergence achieved by former President Demetris Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, which provides that the decisions concerning the maritime zones will be a federal competence in the reunited Cyprus.At the same time, he said, the Cypriot government is committed to the principle that natural wealth belongs to the state and to all its legitimate citizens. “Towards this direction, we have proposed to the parliament a bill that provides for the establishment of a state fund for the management of any future hydrocarbon reserves, safeguarding the interests of current and future generations of all Cypriots, based on the Norwegian model, as well as internationally recognised principles and best practices,” he said.The former government spokesman  who took over the foreign ministry’s portfolio earlier in the week from Ioannis Kassoulides, said he has big shoes to fill as his predecessor has “set the bar very high”.“My first goal is to ensure a continuity of all that has been achieved and which, unavoidably, in cooperation and in tandem with the actions of President Anastasiades, have upgraded the international standing of Cyprus but also its role within the EU and the wider Middle East region,” Christodoulides said.He added that he is contemplating on drawing a road map in cooperation with his ministry to see this goal through.Christodoulides will travel to Athens on Monday to brief, along with Greece’s Foreign Minister, Nicos Kotzias, the Greek parliament’s foreign affairs and defence committees on the latest developments in the Cyprus problem, Cyprus’ energy programme and Turkey’s actions in the Republic’s EEZ. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

charliecampbell@timecomMost Americans know that cholesterol in the body is one of the biggest contributors to heart disease and stroke But according to new research from the American Heart Association many still arent sure what they should be doing about their high cholesterol levels In the nationwide survey of more than 800 people all of whom had a history of cardiovascular disease or at least one major risk factor for it 47% said they had not had their cholesterol checked in the last year And while close to 90% of people said they understood the importance of managing their cholesterol almost half did not feel confident about their ability to do so "There was a major disconnect between perceptions about cholesterol and the significance of its health impact" says Dr Mary Ann Bauman a member of the American Heart Association’s cholesterol advisory group Bauman says that knowing just the basics about cholesterol can save lives and prevent health complications Heres what she and other experts want Americans to do to protect themselves Get tested The American Heart Association recommends that all adults have their cholesterol tested every four to six years starting at age 20 If you have abnormal levels or if you have other risk factors for heart disease and stroke your doctor will likely recommend more frequent monitoring Bauman says its no longer enough to only know your total cholesterol; its also important to know your breakdown of the two types of cholesterol LDL (the "bad" type responsible for plaque buildup in the arteries) and HDL (the "good" type that helps clean out that plaque) "You can remember that by thinking you want your LDL to be as low as possible and your HDL as high as possible: L for low and H for high" she says High cholesterol doesnt cause symptoms early on making it easy to ignore or go unchecked "Its not actually bothering people so they dont feel a sense of urgency about it" says Bauman "But they should because over time it increases their plaque and makes them more prone to heart attack and stroke" Home testing kits are available for cholesterol levels but none are recommended by the American Heart Association Its best to be tested in your doctors office says Bauman to ensure an accurate reading and get personalized advice for what to do with your results Know what your numbers meanfor you High cholesterol can mean something different for every person While the accepted threshold for "desirable" total cholesterol is 200 mg/dL doctors are moving away from a one-size-fits-all approach to diagnosis and treatment "For somebody who has already had a heart attack or stroke or has high blood pressure or is diabetic we as physicians may want their cholesterol much lower than somebody who has no other risk factors" says Dr Susan Smyth medical director of the Gill Heart Institute at the University of Kentucky MORE: Depression Can Double Risk for Stroke Sometimes even a reading in the “normal” range can be problematic she says A recent study in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that most major heart attacks occur in people with normal LDL cholesterol Bauman encourages people to plug their total and HDL cholesterol numbersalong with their blood pressure and a few other pieces of informationinto the American Heart Association’s and American College of Cardiology’s 10-year cardiovascular risk calculator According to 2013 guidelines doctors should use this calculation (and not cholesterol numbers alone) to determine whether patients should be prescribed cholesterol-lowering medication or lifestyle modifications Eat more heart-healthy foods Whether you want to lower your cholesterol or just keep it in a healthy range eating well can help Research has shown that eating less red meat and
