The best types of cheese for you fall into three categories, so see what the best ones in this article are!   3 Types of Cheese   There are many types of cheese that can be enjoyed for their different health benefits. Below is a list of the best types of cheese to eat every day in order to boost your health:   Goat Cheese: Goat cheese is a high-quality, calcium-rich cheese that contains probiotics that can help improve gut health. It has been shown to combat inflammation and support overall oral health. Blue Cheese: Blue cheese is made from pasteurized cows’ milk and contains high levels of antioxidants, thickeners, and vitamins A and K. It has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. Cottage Cheese: Low in fat content but high in vitamin B12, cottage cheese helps promote healthy blood pressure levels and enhances cognitive function during pregnancy. It is also a good source of protein and calcium.   Nutritional Value of Cheese   Cheese is a dairy product that is made from the milk of cows, goats, or other animals. It is a food that can be enjoyed both cooked and raw. Halloumi Cheese is high in fat and protein and low in sugar. The caloric value of cheese depends on the type of cheese and its fat content. Chevre has the lowest calorie value at 71 calories per ounce, while Cheddar cheese has the highest calorie value at 291 calories per ounce.   The nutritive value of cheese varies depending on the type of cheese. Chevre has a higher nutrient value than Cheddar cheese because it has more calcium and vitamin B12. Cottage cheese also contains more calcium than most cheeses, but it does not have as many nutrients as Chevre or mozzarella. Cheese can be consumed in moderation without affecting your health, but if you are trying to gain weight or lower your cholesterol levels, limits should be set on how much cheese you consume daily.   How to Use Cheese Cheese is a delicious, healthy and affordable staple food that can be enjoyed in many ways. It can be eaten on its own as an appetizer or as part of a dish.   Ways to Use Cheese in a Meal One way to use cheese in a meal is as an ingredient in a dish. For example, you can add it to a salad or make a vegetable dish with it. Some people like to eat cheese on its own, such as cream cheese or blue cheese. You can also use cheese in recipes that call for other ingredients, such as macaroni and cheese or shepherd's pie. Cheeses can also be used in sauces and dips.

    You might know all the different shapes and cuts of diamonds, or at least recognize them on a store-bought piece of jewelry. Learn about the types of diamond cuts and shape from this article.   What is a Diamond Shape? A diamond is a gemstone with a distinctive shape: it is a six-pointed, cubic crystal of carbon, with angles of 58.42 degrees (2/9 of a circle), measuring 10.5 millimeters on the longest side and 7.87 on the shortest. Diamonds are found in many colors including D and F colors which are very rare, and also in other colors such as blue, purple, pink and yellow. Diamonds are graded on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest quality. A diamond's carat weight is its size in points; each point equals 2.71 grams or 0.094 ounces.   What is a Diamond Cut? Diamonds are graded on a scale from D to Z and their cut is one factor that affects their value. A higher quality diamond will usually have a more “perfect” shape, meaning its angles and height (thickness) are correct. The other factors that affect diamond cut include the symmetry of the diamond and the precision with which it was cut. A diamond’s symmetry is determined by four main factors: the angle at which the diamond faces the girdle, the angle of inclination between each facet and the table, how many facets there are on each side of the prongs, and how deep they go into the stone. A symmetrical diamond will have all sides with the same number of facets and all sides will be at an equal angle to each other. The depth of a gemstone’s cutting can also affect its symmetry. If a diamond is not deeply cut, it may have uneven angles which can lead to distortion in its symmetry. In addition, if a diamond has been deeply cut but not perfectly symmetrical, it may sell for more than a less well-cut gemstone because people believe it to be more beautiful or unique   Commonly Overlooked Differences Diamond shape can affect diamond cut. A round diamond has a smooth, Sphere-like shape. An emerald cut is typically sported by a rectangular or square stone with rounded corners. A marquise diamond has protruding corners, while an Asscher cut features deeper points. Combined cuts combine two diamond shapes - such as a loose asscher cut surrounded by a shapewear-like edging called a bezel, which creates the characteristic "V" figure on the diamond's face. In fact, some popular combinations include: triangle (point), marquise (oval), baguette (round), and imperial (rectangular). Most people are familiar with round diamonds but there are other shapes that can be just as beautiful and offer their own unique set of characteristics. Some of the other more common gemstone shapes include pear shaped diamonds; heart shaped diamonds, octagonal diamonds and angled diamonds. Each of these shapes offers its own set of benefits that may be desired by certain buyers.- Round: The most popular diamond shape and the most versatile because it can be fashioned into many different designs including classic rounds, princess cuts, fancy rounds and more.- Pear Shaped: Known for their sleek lines and feminine curves these gems are perfect for delicate rings or earrings.- Heart Shaped: Embrace your love heart out with a sparkling heart-shaped Diamond!- Octagonal: Lively and sparking looking with angles all around they make   Conclusion It can be tough to make a decision about what type of diamond you want, especially if you don't have any real guidance. In this article, we will explore the different types of diamond shapes and their corresponding characteristics. From there, we will provide some tips for narrowing down your choices and making an informed purchase. Thanks for reading!

    Airbnb is the new favorite due to its flexibility and additional facilities like privacy and a homey environment. Apart from that, there is an opportunity to bargain for an Airbnb at cheaper rates, and you will feel as if you have come to your second home. Furthermore, Airbnb kochi offers you the option of choosing to live alone or share with other people so that you can split the cost of your stay. Also, you can enjoy and relax in the atmosphere of the beautiful nature around you, away from your work and the city's noise. However, some fixed target audiences use Airbnb and cannot do without it whenever they travel: The millennials of today’s generation are the primary target audience, as they prefer a quiet and calm place to live independently. So, they prefer to shift to an Airbnb as hotel costs are sometimes out of range and hotels charge additionally for extra services, which are comparatively cheaper when staying at an Airbnb. Those who travel frequently prefer to use Airbnb because they already spend money on travel. So, they would look for places that charge less and offer flexibility without charging for any extra services. Most people in Europe and Asia use the Airbnb service because it is user-friendly and provides a guaranteed platform for safer payment services. Moreover, you can also deal with your preferred owners before confirming your preferred AirBnB house. People who travel for work or education prefer to stay in an Airbnb house because of the low costs, friendly surroundings, and proximity to the essential elements. That is also a place where you can concentrate on your work without anyone interfering, allowing you to complete your work on time and enjoy your alone time. Many people book AirBnB to relax and enjoy their time to relieve their trauma and stress. Spending some time in nature will automatically reduce half of the stress and trauma without the help of a counselor. In conclusion, Airbnb is a prevalent trend among the younger generations and has topped in travel accommodations. Furthermore, it is also a safer option to stay rather than stay at a hotel.

Looker Studio makes it easy to build new apps and provides pre-built templates for different types of apps (i.e. Data Card, Dashboard, or Analysis). Let’s look at how to use the Looker Studio template - a step-by-step guide.     What is a Looker Studio Template? A Looker Studio template is a pre-built app in the Looker Studio app builder.

Actions - Actions can be added to your app to enable your audience to interact with your app in different ways.

    When you think of Paris, elegance, romance and beauty come to mind. It’s almost as if every stone, gabled roof and cobblestone is saturated with history and art. The city is abundant with sights that will take your breath away. Even for an experienced traveler, it can be difficult to navigate the city. Although there are many tourist attractions, it’s not the easiest place to find them all. If you’re planning a trip to Paris soon, here are some tips and tricks to make it an unforgettable experience.     Don’t forget your walking shoes The cobblestone streets and boulevards of Paris are not the easiest to navigate. Many of the main streets are one-way, and finding your way is much easier if you know which direction you’re heading. Locals frequently walk in the middle of the streets, so don’t be alarmed if you’re suddenly having to step into a side street to let them pass by with their dogs. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and be respectful that Parisians like to keep things tidy. Pack out your trash, and move your feet away from the curb when you see someone with a broom coming.   Paris CDG Airport for first timer The Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, or CDG Airport, is one of the largest and busiest airports in Europe. It’s a hub for the Air France airline and sits about 30 miles northeast of the city. If you’re flying in for the first time, you will likely be a little nervous about getting to the city. The RER B train is the best way to get to the city, and you can buy your ticket on the Air France website before you fly. The trip takes about 45 minutes and costs about $23. If you’re in a rush to get to your hotel, the RER B train is the fastest way. If you have time, you can also take the Busline 350 to the city. This trip takes about an hour and a half and costs about $10.   ‍ Plan your itinerary before you go Paris is large and very walkable, both a blessing and a curse. Locals love to walk, and you’ll see people strolling around with their dogs, kids and bicycles. While this is beautiful to see, it can make it difficult to navigate Paris, especially if you’re trying to see a lot of sights in a short amount of time. Make sure you’ve planned out your itinerary before you arrive. This will help you avoid wasting valuable time trying to figure out how to get from place to place. The Metro is the easiest way to get around Paris, and the RATP app will tell you how to get from point A to point B.   Download the Paris Museum Pass If you’re visiting Paris in the spring or fall, when it’s not too hot or cold, you’ll want to make sure you visit at least one of the many museums in Paris. The only problem is, you won’t know which ones to choose. To save you the trouble, make sure you download the Paris Museum Pass app before you go. You can purchase the Paris Museum Pass before you arrive, or once you’ve arrived in Paris. This pass allows you to visit many of the top museums in Paris for one price. The pass costs $58 for one person, and $108 for two people.   Don’t speak French? Here’s your guide If you don’t speak French, you may be a little nervous about ordering a meal at a restaurant or asking for directions. Don’t worry, the Parisians are some of the nicest people in the world and will help you out. Here are a few key phrases you should know before you go. Bonjour - Hello Merci - Thank you S’il vous plaît - Please Bonne journée - Have a good day   Conclusion Paris is a city full of history, romance, and art. If you’re planning a trip to Paris, follow these tips and tricks to ensure you have the best experience.

The library is open from 8am to 8pm every day of the week and is a nice place to relax and read a book from their selection of English, Spanish and French titles. There’s no need to bring a book from home, as travelers can leave books from their own collection to be enjoyed by other passengers. There’s a small donation box, so if you like the service, you can leave a few coins for the library to keep it going.   Showers for travellers Who knew that Barcelona’s airport has showers? Well, it does! If you are a frequent traveller or simply love to travel, then you know how important it is to remain clean and fresh to avoid illnesses. Airports can be dirty places, so taking a shower while waiting for your flight is a pretty useful thing to do. There are two showers available for travellers at Terminal 1 and 2, next to the prayer rooms. They are free to use, but you’ll need to bring your own towel.   ‍ Photo by chengtzf on Pixabay ‍     Infra-red sauna and spa Something is calming about sitting in an infra-red sauna, and you’ll find one at Barcelona Airport. The sauna is located next to the showers and spa services (for a small fee) in Terminal 1. If you have time for a massage, you can head over to the spa area where you can choose from a selection of massages and other services. Be sure to book your appointment in advance as the area gets pretty busy.   Conclusion If you have time before your flight, exploring the hidden gems at Barcelona Airport is a great way to pass the time. From reading a book in the library to enjoying a nice, relaxing massage at the spa, you can do many things while waiting for your flight. In addition, you can learn more about the history of the city and its culture. If you are travelling to Barcelona soon, then make sure to check these gems out. From interesting museums to unique gardens, these places are a must-see. With so much to offer, Barcelona Airport is more than just a place to catch a flight.

    Roughly 90% of the world’s diamonds are mined in Africa, where human rights abuses and illegal diamond dealing are rampant. The Kimberley Process is a system that was put into place to protect these precious stones from such threats. In this blog post, we will explore the Kimberley Process and how it works to ensure that your diamond remains safe from theft and exploitation. We will also describe some of the challenges faced in implementing this system and offer advice on how you can help ensure its success. Diamonds The Kimberley Process was created to help protect diamonds from illegal dealing. This process requires lab created diamonds UK miners to go through a specific process before selling their diamonds. The process includes verifying that the diamond has not been stolen and has not been tampered with in any way. This helps to ensure that the diamond is safe for purchase and use and that it will not be subject to any illegal activities. The Kimberley Process The Kimberley Process is a collaborative effort between diamond producers, jewelers, and other stakeholders to prevent the illegal trade of diamonds. The process began in 1990 and has since been ratified by 67 countries. The Kimberley Process helps to identify diamonds that have not been ethically sourced and tracks them from mine to market. It requires that all diamond transactions be carried out through a dedicated system of registries and that transparent reporting be conducted regularly.  The Kimberley Process also promotes transparency in the pricing of diamonds, encourages conflict-free mining practices, and aims to develop responsible trade practices for artisanal miners. How Does the Kimberley Process Work? The Kimberley Process protects diamonds from being sold illegally. It begins by identifying a diamond's origin, which is then verified by an independent third party. The diamond is then registered with the Kimberley Process and undergoes checks to ensure its purity and authenticity. If irregularities are found, the diamond is returned to its owner or company for further examination. The Kimberley Process has helped prevent diamond trafficking and corruption in several countries worldwide, including Sierra Leone, Liberia, Angola, and Guinea Bissau. The Benefits of the Kimberley Process The Kimberley Process is a certification system that protects the environment and human rights of people living in developing countries who extract diamonds. The system requires that diamond mines be registered and adhere to certain standards, including fair pay, minimum health and safety standards, and the prevention of child labor. The system also ensures that diamonds are traceable from the mine to the customer, preventing illegal trading or mining. This has helped preserve the environment and protect human rights.

The car has been around for over 60 years, and it still remains one of the most popular brands in the world.   One of the things that make the BMW car so special is the fact that it was designed by German engineer, Henry Ford. He wanted to create a car that could be affordable for middle class families, and he succeeded. The BMW brand has become one of the most iconic names in the automotive industry, and their cars are some of the most expensive on the market.   One of the reasons why people love the BMW car is because it has a unique style.

          Image source, Starlink Image caption, A SpaceX rocket blasts off from Cape Canaveral, carrying Starlink satellites Elon Musk's SpaceX company has been launching thousands of satellites into orbit. Many people say they've seen them in the skies. They're part of the Starlink project, which aims to provide high speed internet services from space, to remote areas on Earth. Starlink provides internet services via a huge network of satellites. It is aimed at people who live in remote areas who cannot get high-speed internet. "There are people in the UK in that category, but more across the world, in places like Africa," says Dr Lucinda King, Space Projects Manager at the University of Portsmouth. Starlink's satellites have been put in low-level orbit around the Earth to make connection speeds between the satellites and the ground as fast as possible. However, a great many low-level satellites are needed to provide full coverage of the globe It's thought Starlink has put some 3,000 of them into space since 2018. It may eventually use 10,000 or 12,000, says Chris Hall. "Using satellites solves the problem of getting internet connections to remote locations in deserts and mountains," he says. "It bypasses the need to build massive amounts of infrastructure, like cables and masts, to reach those areas." Compared to standard internet providers, Starlink isn't cheap. It charges customers $99 per month (£89 per month in the UK). The dish and router needed to connect to the satellites costs $549 (£529 in the UK). However, 96% of households in the UK already have access to high-speed internet, as do 90% of households in the EU and the US. "Most of the developed world is already well connected," says Professor Sa'id Mosteshar of London University's Institute of Space Policy and Law. "They're relying on a small share of the market for revenues." The company says it has 400,000 subscribers in the 36 countries it currently covers - mostly in North America, Europe and Australasia. This is made up of both households and businesses. Next year, Starlink plans to extend its coverage further across Africa and South America, and into Asia - regions of the world where internet coverage is more patchy. "Starlink's prices may be too high for many households in Africa, say," says Chris Hall. "But it could play an important role in connecting schools and hospitals in remote areas there." As Russian forces have advanced in Ukraine they have closed down Ukrainian internet services and tried to block social media. Elon Musk made Starlink available in Ukraine immediately after the invasion started. About 15,000 of Starlink's sets of dishes and routers have been shipped to the country. "Starlink has kept things going, like public services and government," says Chris Hall. "The Russians haven't found a way of disabling it." It has also been used on the battlefield. "Ukrainian forces are using it to communicate - for example, between headquarters and troops in the field," says Dr Marina Miron, defence studies researcher at Kings College London. "Its signals cannot be jammed like ordinary radio signals can be, and it takes only 15 minutes to set up the kit." In addition to Starlink, rivals such as OneWeb and Viasat - who also run satellite internet services - are putting thousands of satellites into low-Earth orbit. That will lead to problems, says Sa'id Mosteshar. "It makes space less and less safe in terms of collisions," he says. "Satellites could hit other vessels and create fragments of wreckage and these, in turn, could cause a lot more damage when flying at high speeds." "If there are too many fragments, it could make low-Earth orbit unusable in the future," says Dr King of Portsmouth University. "And we may not be able to get out of low-Earth orbit into higher orbits, where our navigational satellites and telecoms satellites are situated." Starlink satellites often show up in photographs as streaks of light, obscuring stars and planets. Starlink's satellites are also creating problems for astronomers. At sunrise and sunset, they may be seen by the naked eye because the sun glints off their wings. This can cause streaks on telescope images, obscuring the view of stars and planets. "Astronomers saw the problems early," says Professor Mosteshar. "They were the first to complain."  Read Full News here

    Jason M. Allen was almost too nervous to enter his first art competition. Now, his award-winning image is sparking controversy about whether art can be generated by a computer, and what, exactly, it means to be an artist. In August, Allen, a game designer who lives in Pueblo West, Colorado, won first place in the emerging artist division’s “digital arts/digitally-manipulated photography” category at the Colorado State Fair Fine Arts Competition. His winning image, titled “Théâtre D’opéra Spatial” (French for “Space Opera Theater”), was made with Midjourney — an artificial intelligence system that can produce detailed images when fed written prompts. A $300 prize accompanied his win. “I’m fascinated by this imagery. I love it. And it think everyone should see it,” Allen, 39, told CNN Business in an interview on Friday.   Allen’s winning image looks like a bright, surreal cross between a Renaissance and steampunk painting. It’s one of three such images he entered in the competition. In total, 11 people entered 18 pieces of art in the same category in the emerging artist division. The definition for the category in which Allen competed states that digital art refers to works that use “digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process.” Allen stated that Midjourney was used to create his image when he entered the contest, he said. Midjourney is one of a growing number of such AI image generators — others include Google Research’s Imagen and OpenAI’s DALL-E 2. Anyone can use Midjourney via Discord, while DALL-E 2 requires an invitation, and Imagen has not been opened up to users outside Google. The newness of these tools, how they’re used to produce images, and, in some cases, the gatekeeping for access to some of the most powerful ones has led to debates about whether they can truly make art or assist humans in making art. This came into sharp focus for Allen not long after his win. Allen had posted excitedly about his win on Midjourney’s Discord server on August 25, along with pictures of his three entries; it went viral on Twitter days later, with many artists angered by Allen’s win because of his use of AI to create the image, as a story by Vice’s Motherboard reported earlier this week. “This sucks for the exact same reason we don’t let robots participate in the Olympics,” one Twitter user wrote. “This is the literal definition of ‘pressed a few buttons to make a digital art piece’,” another Tweeted. “AI artwork is the ‘banana taped to the wall’ of the digital world now.” Yet while Allen didn’t use a paintbrush to create his winning piece, there was plenty of work involved, he said. “It’s not like you’re just smashing words together and winning competitions,” he said. You can feed a phrase like “an oil painting of an angry strawberry” to Midjourney and receive several images from the AI system within seconds, but Allen’s process wasn’t that simple. To get the final three images he entered in the competition, he said, took more than 80 hours. First, he said, he played around with phrasing that led Midjourney to generate images of women in frilly dresses and space helmets — he was trying to mash up Victorian-style costuming with space themes, he said. Over time, with many slight tweaks to his written prompt (such as to adjust lighting and color harmony), he created 900 iterations of what led to his final three images. He cleaned up those three images in Photoshop, such as by giving one of the female figures in his winning image a head with wavy, dark hair after Midjourney had rendered her headless. Then he ran the images through another software program called Gigapixel AI that can improve resolution and had the images printed on canvas at a local print shop. Allen is glad the debate over whether AI can be used to make art is capturing so much attention. “Rather than hating on the technology or the people behind it, we need to recognize that it’s a powerful tool and use it for good so we can all move forward rather than sulking about it,” Allen said. Cal Duran, an artist and art teacher who was one of the judges for the competition, said that while Allen’s piece included a mention of Midjourney, he didn’t realize that it was generated by AI when judging it. Still, he sticks by his decision to award it first place in its category, he said, calling it a “beautiful piece”. “I think there’s a lot involved in this piece and I think the AI technology may give more opportunities to people who may not find themselves artists in the conventional way,” he said. Allen won’t yet say what the text prompt was behind his winning image — he’s planning to keep it a secret until he publishes a larger related work that he hopes will be finished later this year.   Read Full News here

    After a historic drop in 2020, life expectancy in the United States took another significant hit in 2021. According to provisional data published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, life expectancy at birth dropped by nearly a year between 2020 and 2021 – and by more than two and a half years overall since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Life expectancy at birth fell to 76.1 years, the lowest it has been in the US since 1996, and the biggest 2-year decline in a century. Covid-19 was the driving factor, with deaths from the virus contributing to half of the decline from 2020 to 2021, according to the report from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. The death rate from Covid-19 was higher in 2021 than it was in 2020, so it wasn’t particularly surprising that life expectancy would fall again, Bob Anderson, chief mortality statistician for the CDC, told CNN. Also, drug overdose deaths reached a record high in 2021, killing about 109,000 people. And deaths from unintentional injuries – about half of which are due to drug overdose – was the second-leading cause of the decline in life expectancy. Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, also said it wasn’t surprising, but it is frustrating. “It is distressing to see a continuing negative impact of drug overdose on the life expectancy of Americans. These deaths often occur in young adults and therefore represent a tragically high number of years of life lost and devastating impact on individuals, families, and communities,” she said. “We have the science and the tools available to help us reverse this trend and reduce the number of overdose deaths in this country. But these tools are not being used effectively.” Even if expected, the scale of the decline is still extraordinary. In 2021, mortality rates due to influenza and pneumonia decreased, and if not for these “offsetting effects,” the decline in US life expectancy would have been even greater, according to the report. “Mortality generally, mainly since the 1950s, has changed rather slowly,” Anderson said. Changes of more than a few tenths of a year have been considered substantial. The recent decline among American Indian and Alaska Native people is particularly “astounding,” Anderson said. The life expectancy for this group plunged by nearly 2 years between 2020 and 2021 and a startling 6.6 years since 2019 – more than twice as much as it did for the total US population. At 65.2 years, the life expectancy for American Indians in 2021 was equal to the overall US life expectancy in 1944. “When I saw that, in the report, I just – my jaw dropped,” Anderson said. “It was hard enough to fathom a 2.7 year decline over 2 years overall. But then to see a 6.6 year decline for the American Indian population – it just shows the substantial impact that the pandemic has had on that population.” Deaths from Covid-19 directly were the leading contributor to the decline in life expectancy among American Indian people in 2021, but deaths due to drug overdose and other unintentional injuries, as well as chronic liver disease, which is often caused by alcohol abuse, were nearly equal contributors for this group. When it comes to the pandemic, Anderson said, “I’m not just talking about Covid-19 necessarily, but also the other factors that seem to have increased during the pandemic.” Experts say the pandemic exacerbated already existing disparities for American Indians and others. Dr. Matthew Clark, a chief medical officer with the Indian Health Service, said the findings of the new CDC report are concerning, but it has been known that American Indian and Alaska Native people “suffer disproportionately with regard to health outcomes for a broad variety of conditions.” There are “unique aspects to addressing health outcomes” in these communities, he said, and this data should be viewed as a “call to action, an opportunity to redouble our efforts” to address a broad range of factors that impact the health of these populations and engage with tribal communities to find solutions. “Even in the midst of a very concerning report like this, I do think that there’s hope,” Clark said, and “there is an opportunity to move the needle in the other direction.” To do that, the goal should be to explore the root causes of those disparities for American Indians and others, said Ruben Cantu, an associate program director with Prevention Institute, a nonprofit focused on health equity. “A lot of the talk is going to be around the pandemic,” Cantu said. “But we need to think about what has driven the conditions that have allowed certain communities to be more vulnerable” in the first place, like crowded housing, poor access to health care and low-income jobs that don’t allow for paid sick leave. A separate study, published as a preprint in June, found that the decrease in life expectancy in the US over the course of the pandemic was “highly racialized” and substantially larger than it was for a set of comparable countries. In fact, that study found that life expectancy increased slightly between 2020 and 2021 for the set of 21 peer countries. The new data from the CDC highlights differences in life-expectancy trends by race and ethnicity, as well as by gender. In the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic, life expectancy declined least among White people. In the second year of the pandemic, however, this group saw the second-biggest decline in life expectancy – and deaths due to Covid-19 contributed to the drop among White people more than any other racial or ethnic group. Once the most vaccinated group, the share of the White population that is fully vaccinated with their initial series now lags behind that of the Black, Hispanic and Asian populations, CDC data shows. Life expectancy in 2021 was highest among both Asian women (85.6 years) and men (81.2 years), the CDC data shows. Hispanic women were the only other group with a life expectancy greater than 80 years. In the total US population, life expectancy fell more among men than among women in 2021, widening a gap that has been growing over the past decade. The disparity in life expectancy between men (73.2 years) and women (79.1 years) is now nearly six years. The life expectancy for American Indian men in 2021 was 61.5 years, lower than any other group. Black men had the next lowest, at 66.7 years. A recent project by the Prevention Institute focused on the mental health and well-being of men and boys. It found that men and boys of color – especially Black and Native American men – “start out with higher rates of trauma and mental health challenges,” Cantu said, which can make them more vulnerable to other conditions. “Over the last five or six years, we’ve heard a lot more about diseases of despair – things like substance use, alcoholism and suicide – and a lot of those things are connected,” he said. “It helps to point out how vulnerable certain communities can be to a lot of other conditions.”   By Deidre McPhillips, CNN https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/31/health/life-expectancy-declines-2021/index.html

    What’s happening Earlier this month, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it is planning to rename the disease known as monkeypox and even created a way for the public to weigh in on what the disease should be called in the future. Since the early weeks of the ongoing global monkeypox outbreak, which has led to nearly 50,000 known cases around the world, many public health experts have been loudly advocating for a new name based on the belief that the term “monkeypox” was misleading and fueled harmful stereotypes. In June, the WHO said it had begun the process of selecting a new label, though it has given no timetable for when a final choice might be made public. Monkeypox got its name after it was first discovered by Danish scientists in lab monkeys in 1958. Monkeys are not known to be major carriers of the disease, though. Most cases of animal-to-human transmission are tied to rodents. The current outbreak is being driven by transmission between humans, primarily men who have sex with men. The effort to rename monkeypox fits into a much broader campaign within the global health community to shed some of the practices that have been historically used to identify pathogens. Since 2015, the WHO has used an updated set of naming conventions that specifically bar the use of geographic titles and species names in order to “minimize unnecessary negative impact of disease names.” Those rules formally apply only to new diseases that need labeling, like COVID-19. There are still countless previously known illnesses on the books — like chickenpox and Middle East respiratory syndrome — that violate these new practices. Why there’s debate Experts broadly agree that monkeypox is, at best, an imperfect name for the disease, but there’s a lot of debate over whether changing its name would have a real effect on the scope of the global outbreak. The simplest argument used in favor of a name change is that it’s confusing and inaccurate, since monkeys don’t spread the disease and the virus is not isolated to parts of the world where they live. But the deeper reason many advocate for a change is their belief that monkeypox promotes dangerous stigma against African countries where the disease has been endemic and evokes the “painful and racist history” of Black people being compared to animals. While experts agree that increasing access to testing, vaccinations and treatment are the most important steps for containing monkeypox, supporters believe a “non-discriminatory and non-stigmatizing” name would make the public and health officials take the risks of monkeypox more seriously. But skeptics doubt that giving monkeypox a new name would make much of a difference, and some worry that such moves can sow public confusion. Many experts argue that racist and anti-LGBTQ stigma would exist regardless of the disease’s name. “The name per se is not a major issue. It’s the weaponization of these names,” Mike Ryan, a WHO executive in charge of global emergency response, told reporters last month. There are also practical concerns, with some experts worrying about how changing the name of a disease that’s been documented for more than 60 years might hurt the continuity of scientific research into the disease. Others say it may be close to impossible to find a unique name that is simple enough to be discussed by the public and does not draw controversy. What’s next Experts say the process of renaming a disease can be painstaking and it may be several months, if not years, before monkeypox is officially renamed. In the meantime, some health authorities have begun using their own alternatives — California’s health department has been calling it MPX and a few other states are using hMPXV. It’s unclear if these names can catch on for everyday use. Perspectives Supporters The current name unfairly directs blame at poor countries and people of color “There are no wild non-human primates in Europe. There are many monkeys and apes in Africa, Asia, and in Central and South America. Monkeys are usually associated with the global south, especially Africa. In addition, there is a long dark history of black people being compared to monkeys. No disease nomenclature should provide a trigger for this.” — Moses John Bockarie, Conversation The name monkeypox fuels stereotypes of LGBTQ people as ‘the other’ “I can say, anecdotally, that all my gay friends are talking about this threat and taking it very seriously. But the name ‘monkeypox’ doesn’t help—it associates the virus with ‘animalistic’ behavior. … No one wants to be called a monkey. That’s particularly true at this historical moment, as the LGBTQ community is watching our hard-fought equality get stripped away, bit by bigoted bit.” — Jay Michaelson, Daily Beast Anything that makes it harder for vulnerable groups to openly discuss the disease must be remedied “Because speaking frankly about sexual behaviors is difficult, certainly for men who have long struggled to live in their bodies without apology, this is where our communication becomes deeply fraught. … Stigma swirls around this diagnosis. It doesn’t have to. Changing that starts with what we call this virus.” — Arjun V.K. Sharma, Boston Globe A name change would have effects long after the current outbreak has subsided “If monkeypox—or maybe rather, MPX—is here to stay, maybe we all ought to think about how to reduce the impact of its name.” — Hannah Docter-Loeb, Slate The name is simply inaccurate “Even the name ‘monkeypox’ is highly misleading and problematic. Monkeypox does not come from monkeys; the reservoir for it is in rodents.” — Ranit Mishori, The Hill Skeptics Changing the name won’t end the bigotry surrounding the disease “HIV is no longer called ‘gay-related immune deficiency,’ but gay men are still frequently ostracized over the condition. Connotation outlives denotation. Even COVID-19—a disease name that was designed from the very start to be as inoffensive as possible—can easily be turned into a slur.” — Benjamin Mazer, Atlantic Labels aren’t the reason that the health response to monkeypox has been so broken “At the moment, the things that are really standing in the way of a successful response are just having access to testing, to vaccine and to treatments. And if those things were fine, there'd be no monkeypox to talk about.” — Keletso Makofane, public health researcher, to NPR Renaming a well-known disease is a lot harder than it sounds “It turns out renaming viruses and the diseases they cause is not an easy thing to do. It raises concerns about the continuity of the scientific literature. It can be difficult to find an alternative that doesn’t offend. And something that works in one language or culture may not work in another.” — Helen Branswell, STAT It will be tough to find a new name that satisfies everyone “Tossing out the old name is easier than deciding on a new one.” — Brittny Mejia, Los Angeles Times Is there a topic you’d like to see covered in “The 360”?

  • What’s happening Earlier this month, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it is planning to rename the disease known as monkeypox and even created a way for the public to weigh in on what the disease should be called in the future. Since the early weeks of the ongoing global monkeypox outbreak, which has led to nearly 50,000 known cases around the world, many public health experts have been loudly advocating for a new name based on the belief that the term “monkeypox” was misleading and fueled harmful stereotypes. In June, the WHO said it had begun the process of selecting a new label, though it has given no timetable for when a final choice might be made public. Monkeypox got its name after it was first discovered by Danish scientists in lab monkeys in 1958. Monkeys are not known to be major carriers of the disease, though. Most cases of animal-to-human transmission are tied to rodents. The current outbreak is being driven by transmission between humans, primarily men who have sex with men. The effort to rename monkeypox fits into a much broader campaign within the global health community to shed some of the practices that have been historically used to identify pathogens.
