'Suicide tourism' to Switzerland has doubled since 2009

The law on assisted suicide in Switzerland isn't clear, according to a paper published in the journal Law, Ethics and Medicine this week. That's why, the authors say, people from other countries are traveling to the state of Zurich for the "sole purpose of committing suicide." They're called suicide tourists. Between 2008 and 2012, 611 "tourists" came to Switzerland for assisted suicide, according to the published analysis. They arrived from 31 countries around the world, though the majority were from Germany and the United Kingdom.

Good news from Kazakhstan about infectious diseases

Astana ready to fight serious infectious outbreaks, including Ebola

August 21, 14:46
Photo: RIA NovostiPhoto: RIA NovostiWith Ebola marching across East Africa and being the deadliest outbreak on record, doctors and scientists all over the world are working hard to counter it, since globalization makes spread of the virus to geographically distant areas as likely as contamination of the neighbouring ones.

The latest UN data suggests that more than 1,200 people have died from the disease since the virus was detected in March this year. There is no specific treatment for the virus but several manufacturers in the United States and Canada declared that they had made some progress in development of drugs against the virus. The World Health Organization said it was ethical to use experimental drugs to treat the disease.

In the meanwhile Kazakhstani authorities are working towards raise awareness among the population. According to the head of epidemiological surveillance of quarantinable and especially dangerous infectious diseases of the Department of Consumer Protection of Astana Julia Mayer, the world is in a precarious epidemiological situation with respect to infectious diseases, including plague, cholera and yellow fever.

“In connection with the unfavorable situation in West Africa, the WHO advises cancelling unnecessary trips to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria, as well as their neighbouring countries, because of the risk to contract the disease,” Mayer said.
She stressed that increasing migration and summer vacation trips escalate the risks of contamination, making it necessary to inform the tourists about the symptoms of the disease and ways of transmission of the virus.

"The Ebola virus is transmitted through contact with bats, gorillas, chimpanzees, as well as antelopes and porcupines. Next, the virus spreads in communities as it can be transmitted from person to person through close contact, through fluids - blood, various bodily fluids, as well as through contact with the surfaces contaminated with these fluids," Mayer said.

Mayer also gave the main symptoms of Ebola: "The disease begins acutely with fever, severe ache in the back of the head and forehead, muscle pain in the neck and lower back. On the second or third day, abdominal pain, diarrhea and vomiting begin. By the fifth or sixth day, a rash appears on the diseased person's chest and then disappears in a couple of days. Bleeding starts on the fourth to seventh day: bloody diarrhea, blood coming from the nose, mouth and eyes."

Having this in mind, deputy head of Astana Department of Consumer Protection Myra Zhusupova said: "A question which naturally arises is whether our hospitals are ready? We have already dealt with adventitious cases of cholera 5-6 years ago and with malaria 2 years ago. And of course, we, Astana, have a reserve of drugs, both specific and broad-spectrum drugs for treatment of particularly dangerous and quarantinable infections."

The Sanitary Epidemiological Service of Kazakhstan recommended to avoid contacts with animals during traveling, drink only bottled or boiled water, use individual dinnerware during meals, swim only in designated places, use mosquito nets and repellents, and wear clothes that cover the whole body during evening or night walks.

Due italiane nelle mani dell'Isis

La notizia trasmessa dal quotidiano Guardian lascia sbigottiti, perche' in pochi sapevano che tra le mani dei ribelli ci fossero anche due donne e un giapponese.
Ora la Farnesina, assieme agli Stati Uniti di America, dovra' adoperarsi per un adeguato bliz o consultazioni internazionali affinche' le due donne italiane facciano ritorno vive nel loro Paese e non seppellite a caso in un deserto e divise in due pezzi.
Considerando che il bliz americano per liberare Foley falli', c'e'davvero da pregare per tutti e quattro gli ostaggi ancora nelle mani di criminali senza scrupoli.

Nonno Neanderthal scomparve prima del previsto e risaputo

Neanderthal Man
L'uomo di Neanderthal si è estinto ben prima di quanto si pensasse, circa 40.000 anni fa. La sua scomparsa dal continente europeo è avvenuta gradualmente, a macchia di leopardo, dando così la possibilità di 'incontri ravvicinati' con gli uomini moderni che avevano già fatto la loro comparsa in diverse zone, come nel sud Italia.

Questo articolo, presentato dalla rubrica scientifica della Agenzia Ansa lo si puo'trovare per esteso su Nature, la rivista scientifica piu' autorevole del momento.

Addio al guru che portò lo yoga in Occidente

Addio Yiengar, Yoga Guru
Lo yoga ha perso il maestro dei maestri, il guru indiano che ha insegnato al mondo moderno la via più semplice d’accesso a tecniche antichissime di controllo del corpo e del respiro. 
Non si sa con certezza se sia morto di una malattia o se abbia davero messo in atto quanto diceva: Morire serenamente. Per un vero Guru dello yoga come lui, avrebbe potuto essere davvero cosi', di aver fermato lui stesso il metabolismo corporeo e "andarsene sereno".
