He enumerated the mandate of FDI,times undermined American sovereignty and the interests of the American people multiple times over,is Putin a potential threat to anything other than US influence in Eastern Europe and possibly the Middle East And in terms of tax revenue even betrayed the interests of US state coffers The leaked DNC emails themselves show us how American democracy for so many millenials Democrats and Independents have been undermined The king of the beggars is not the main threat to the USA A Washington Post essay titled “By November Russian Hackers Could Target US Voting Machines” is full-scale fear-mongering beyond reasonable doubt Donald Trump doesn’t need Putin to hack decades old Diebold voting machines that run on Windows 95-grade software Greg Palast’s Billionaires and Ballot Banditsshows that the DNC and RNC along with their affiliated state governors could get that done too Trump already has the notorious Karl Rove on his side After killing investigative journalism (with the exception of Greg Palast and The Intercept) the American state can only be exposed by hackers and comedians That such leaks are immediately sought to be discredited as foreign sabotage exposes the shaky legal grounds on which every American statecraft works This is a case of Trump falling for the DNC spin about Putin’s role and then playing into the hands of the Democrats out of sheer stupidity providing the establishment corporate media and top leaders the cover they need to avoid addressing the fact that Bernie Sanders won the Democratic primary even as Sanders conceded the Democratic nomination Top seed Vikas Krishan took barely a couple of minutes to book his quarterfinal berth in the 75-kg category as Indian boxers began their campaign on a

together industry and government to seek treatments for the brain-wasting disease FILE PHOTO: Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates talks with a colleague before the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha Nebraska US May 6 2017 REUTERS/Rick Wilking/File PhotoThe investment – a personal one and not part of Gates’ philanthropic Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – will be followed by another $50 million in start-up ventures working in Alzheimer’s research Gates said With rapidly rising numbers of people suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia the disease is taking a growing emotional and financial toll as people live longer Gates told Reuters in an interview “It’s a huge problem a growing problem and the scale of the tragedy – even for the people who stay alive – is very high” he said Despite decades of scientific research there is no treatment that can slow the progression of Alzheimer‘s Current drugs can do no more than ease some of the symptoms Gates said however that with focused and well-funded innovation he’s “optimistic” treatments can be found even if they might be more than a decade away ”It’ll take probably 10 years before new theories are tried enough times to give them a high chance of success So it’s very hard to hazard a guess (when an effective drug might be developed) “I hope that in the next 10 years that we have some powerful drugs but it’s possible that won’t be achieved” Dementia of which Alzheimer’s is the most common form affects close to 50 million people worldwide and is expected to affect more than 131 million by 2050 according to the non-profit campaign group Alzheimer’s Disease International The DDF which was launched in 2015 and involves drugmakers GlaxoSmithKline Johnson & Johnson Eli Lilly Pfizer and Biogen Idec as well as the UK government has already invested in at least nine start-up companies investigating potential ways to stop or reverse the biological processes that lead to dementia Gates told Reuters the additional $50 million would be put into start-ups working on some “less mainstream” approaches to the disease but said he had not yet identified these companies The philanthropist whose usual focus is on infectious diseases in poorer countries said Alzheimer’s caught his interest partly for personal reasons and partly because it has so far proved such a tough nut to crack “I know how awful it is to watch people you love struggle as the disease robs them of their mental capacity . It feels a lot like you’re experiencing a gradual death of the person that you knew” he said in a blog post about the dementia investments ”Some of the men in my family have suffered from Alzheimer‘s but I wouldn’t say that’s the sole reason“ (for this investment)” he added Jeremy Hughes chief executive of the Alzheimer’s Society charity welcomed Gates’ “significant personal investment” saying it would speed up progress toward a cure and help reduce stigma around dementia: “With Bill Gates now joining all those already united against dementia there is new hope for advances in the care and cure of dementia” he said in a statement Through talking to experts in the field over the past year Gates said he had identified five areas of need: Understanding better how Alzheimer’s unfolds detecting and diagnosing it earlier pursuing multiple approaches to trying to halt the disease making it easier for people to take part in clinical trials of potential new medicines and using data better “My background at Microsoft and my (Gates) Foundation background say to me that a data-driven contribution might be an area where I can help add some value” he said Alongside the $50 million investment in DDF and the additional $50 million planned for start-ups Gates said he would like to award a grant to build a global dementia data platform This would make it easier for researchers to look for patterns and identify new pathways for treatment he said This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Trump, balletic dives that it makes to pursue its prey, denied having received the notice.Dapodi, could get them wickets.
