Nigerian Doctor Wins “Brain Tumor Research” Award In U.S.

Nigerian Doctor Wins “Brain Tumor Research” Award In U.S.

Nigerian Doctor Wins “Brain Tumor Research” Award In U.S.
A US-based Nigerian Doctor, Dr Chibawanye Ene has won the 2019 Ronald L. Bittner Award on Brain Tumor Research.

A statement from the Clinical Department, Applied Radiation Oncology U.S., said Ene received the award at the 2019 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting held from April 13 to April 17 in San Diego.

Ene who is from Akpugo in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, won the award with his research work on ‘Anti-PD-L1 Immunotherapy Enhances Radiation-induced Abscopal Response in Glioblastoma’.

It was reported that Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that helps immune system fight cancer.

The immune system, made up of white blood cells, organs and tissues of the lymph system, helps the body fight infections and other diseases.

The Clinical Department stated Immunotherapy is a type of biological therapy.

Also, Glioblastoma, known as glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), is the most aggressive cancer that begins within the brain. Initially, signs and symptoms of glioblastoma are non-specific.

They may include headaches, personality changes, nausea, and symptoms similar to those of a stroke.

Immunotherapy for glioblastoma has been largely unsuccessful in part, because molecular heterogeneity drives selective elimination of only a subset of tumor cells.

According to the statement, it appears that therapeutic success in patients would require achieving an abscopal effect, where following focused radiation therapy, non-targeted tumor cells are attacked by the immune system.

The statement further revealed to Freshreporters News that it remains unclear how glioblastoma respond to focused radiation in terms of failure location and whether immunotherapy could amplify the immune response to tumor outside the radiation field.

The result of the study’s experiment show that radiation combined with anti PD L1 therapy induces an immunological response to unirradiated glioblastoma.

The researchers are currently optimizing other treatment combinations that could also be readily assessed in phase I human clinical trials.

 Dog Saves Newborn Baby Buried In A Field – Thailand

Dog Saves Newborn Baby Buried In A Field – Thailand

A dog in Thailand has been applauded and called an hero for detecting and saving an infant who was allegedly buried in a field by his teenage mother.

Freshreporters News was able to understand that the newborn was lying under a layer of dirt near a farm in the Chumpuang district of Nakhon Ratchasima province but was found the same day (May 15th) by a curious canine named Ping Pong.

The dog dug around the area and began barking, alerting his owner a cattle herder, who went to the site.

I don’t think it was long after his mother buried him before the dog found him,” case officer Panuvat Udkam told AFP.

He added that the boy was healthy, was recovering in hospital, and was so young he had not been named yet.

The teenage mother was charged with attempted murder and abandonment of children.

Officer Panuvat said the suspect was 15 years old and had tried to dispose of the child because she was afraid her parents would get angry.

So after she delivered the baby by herself she buried it,” he said.

Local media coverage hailed the achievement and social media users praised Ping Pong’s good deed.

A dog is the “best friend” of human beings, a Facebook user commented on the page of media outlet Khaosod English.

1.4b Facebook Members Predicted To Die By 2100

1.4b Facebook Members Predicted To Die By 2100

1.4b Facebook members predicted to die by 2100

At least 1.4 billion Facebook members have been predicted to die before 2100, as a result of which dead members on the social media platform could outnumber the living members by 2070.

A new analysis conducted by researchers from the Oxford Internet Institute (part of the University of Oxford, England) said  the dead may outnumber the living on Facebook within 50 years – a trend that it said will have grave implications for the world’s digital heritage in the future. From their analysis, the researchers said if Facebook continues to expand at current rates, the number of deceased members could reach as high as 4.9 billion before the end of the century. Facebook With an estimated 2.32 billion monthly active users as of the fourth quarter of 2018, Facebook is currently rated the world’s largest social network.

The predictions are based on data from the UN, which provide the expected number of mortalities and total populations for every country in the world distributed by age, and Facebook data scraped from the company’s Audience Insights feature. Nigeria is ranked as African’s highest internet using country, making up 27.4 percent of the continent’s total usage.

 According to statcounter GlobalStats, Nigeria had 79.25 percent Facebook users between March 2018 and March 2019. Statistics also predict that the number of Facebook users in Nigeria is expected to reach 30.4 million, up from 22.4 million in 2018.
 Lead author of the analysis, Carl Ohman, a doctoral candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute said the statistics give rise to new and difficult questions around who has the right to all this data, how should it be managed in the best interests of the families and friends of the deceased and its use by future historians to understand the past.

 “On a societal level, we have just begun asking these questions and we have a long way to go. The management of our digital remains will eventually affect everyone who uses social media, since all of us will one day pass away and leave our data behind. “But the totality of the deceased user profiles also amounts to something larger than the sum of its parts.
 It is, or will at least become, part of our global digital heritage,” Ohman stated. “Co-author of the study, David Watson, also a DPhil student at the Institute explained: “Never before in history has such a vast archive of human behaviour and culture been assembled in one place. Controlling this archive will, in a sense, be to control our history. “It is therefore important that we ensure that access to these historical data is not limited to a single for-profit firm.

 It is also important to make sure that future generations can use our digital heritage to understand their history.” Ohman said the analysis sets up two potential extreme scenarios, arguing that the future trend will fall somewhere in between. “The first scenario assumes that no new users join Facebook as of 2018. Under these conditions, Asia’s share of dead users increases rapidly to account for nearly 44 percent of the total by the end of the century.

 “Nearly half of those profiles come from India and Indonesia, which together account for just under 279 million Facebook mortalities by 2100. “The second scenario assumes that Facebook continues to grow by its current rate of 13 percent globally, every year, until each market reaches saturation.” Ohman stated that under these conditions, Africa will make up a growing share of dead users. “Nigeria, in particular, becomes a major hub in this scenario, accounting for over 6 percent of the total. By contrast, Western users will account for only a minority of users, with only the US making the top 10. BBNaija: Fans ‘impatient’ as new season delays “The results should be interpreted not as a prediction of the future, but as a commentary on the current development, and an opportunity to shape what future we are headed towards. “But this has no bearing on our larger point that critical discussion of online death and its macroscopic implications is urgently needed.

 Facebook is merely an example of what awaits any platform with similar connectivity and global reach,” Ohman explained. Watson added: “Facebook should invite historians, archivists, archaeologists and ethicists to participate in the process of curating the vast volume of accumulated data that we leave behind as we pass away. “This is not just about finding solutions that will be sustainable for the next couple of years, but possibly for many decades ahead.”

Secretary Toby says — “It’s just to make sure that crawling and creeping things get fumigated from the building. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosts the office of the president, so it did an internal memo asking the staff to stay home while they do the fumigation.

The snakes were never killed. There was a little hole somewhere [through which] they made their way back.”

Toby further disclosed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday, April 19, began thorough fumigation of the building.

He added: “That building’s been there for years now, and [because of] the drainage system, the possibility of having things like snakes crawling in that building was high,” he said.

Expert Gives Explanation On Why Nigerians Are Experiencing Hot Weather

Expert Gives Explanation On Why Nigerians Are Experiencing Hot Weather

Reasons For An Excessive Heat In Nigeria Discussed By An Expert.

Expert Gives Explanation On Why Nigerians Are Experiencing Hot Weather
Describing hot weather

According to a knowledgeable personnel, Dr. Mohammed Bukar Ngamdu, made striking declarations in his statement on the prevailing weather condition.

Today being Monday, Dr. Ngamdu who is from the Department of Geography, Yobe State University Damaturu during his interaction with Daily Post made the following explanations on the reasons for hot weather felt in Nigeria.

See here :
“The excessive heat in this part of the country is as result of global climatic change which can be attributed to human activities.

“Activities such as deforestation among others without replacing them are responsible. For instance, in an environment, normally trees serve as carbon storage facilities, that is the excess carbon that exists in the atmosphere is being stored in the trees.

“So in the process of cutting down these trees, the carbon being stored in the tree will go back to the atmosphere, thereby increasing the rate of heat in the atmosphere,” he noted.

According to him, as a result of continues climatic change, the Southern part of the country keeps on experiencing the problem of flooding, whereas the northern part keeps on experiencing the problem of increased heat waves, desertification and drought among other environmental challenges.

“Climatically, as of now if you move northward in the state, the rate of desertification, drought and excessive heat keeps on increasing in that area. For instance, when you compare places like Machina, Yunusari and Yusufari in northern Yobe, they ore hotter than places like Fika, Gujba and Gulani located in the Southern part of the state.

“That means that the more you go northward part of the state, the higher the heat becomes”, the climatologist expatiated.

He further attributed the high rate of health issues such as dehydration and kidney diseases among people in the state to the increase in the heat waves, while calling on policymakers in the state to stretch out laws that would discourage people from cutting down trees.

Drug Trafficking: FG Says Execution Of Nigerian Woman In Saudi Arabia, Pathetic

Drug Trafficking: FG Says Execution Of Nigerian Woman In Saudi Arabia, Pathetic

Saudi Arabia Executes Nigerian woman For Drug Trafficking

Saudi Arabia Executes Nigerian woman For Drug Trafficking 

The Presidency said on Tuesday that the execution of a Nigerian woman over drug-related offence on Monday in Saudi Arabia was pathetic and tragic.

The Nigerian woman was among four persons executed by the Saudi authorities on Monday, according to that country’s Interior Ministry.

The others were two Pakistani men and a Yemeni man.

Saudi Arabia has executed 53 people this year alone over such offences.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who expressed the feeling of the Nigerian Government, recalled that the woman became the 8th Nigerian to die in similar circumstances.

The SSA, who spoke with State House correspondents in Abuja, disclosed that 20 others were still on the death row, besides 12 more already sentenced to jail.

She noted that the government was saddened by the fact that in some instances, the unfortunate Nigerians were the victims of drug cartels working with some airline workers.

Dabiri-Erewa said in some cases, drugs were stealthily put in the bags of unsuspecting pilgrims by the cartels only for them to be picked up on arrival in Saudi Arabia.

She stated that for such isolated cases, it was the desire of Nigeria that Saudi Arabia should show mercy, since the drugs were not transported with the knowledge of the victims.

The SSA added, “We have had cases where truly they didn’t commit the offence. We have appealed to the Saudi authorities to make the trials fair, open and ensure that justice is done. Even if you are going to die, you will know that you die for an offence you committed.

“So, while we appeal to Nigerians going to Saudi Arabia, we know it is tough, obey the laws of the land. Even kola nut is treated as a drug. So, we will continue to appeal to the Saudi authorities to treat some of the cases with some form of leniency.

“Like I said, we have 20 of them in Saudi; this is the 8th to be executed and we are hopeful that maybe we will be able to save the others. It is pathetic, it is tragic but we will continue to appeal to Nigerians to obey the laws of the land where you are.

“However, we expect the trial to be fair, open and ensure that justice truly is done.”

She also reacted to the conduct of the five Nigerians arrested in the United Arab Emirates for robbing a bureau de change and carting away Dh2.3 million.

She described their conduct as disgraceful and an embarrassment to the country and their families.

She spoke further, “These five boys are a disgrace to this country and an embarrassment. So, if the UAE decides to be hard on Nigerians then we will complain that they are hard on us. But we will continue to say that one bad apple should not spoil the whole bunch.

“Nigerians are hard-working, intelligent; so these few should not spoil the whole bunch because this has made news all over the UAE now.

“We are going to continue to name those who disgrace the country anywhere in the world and we will continue to appeal to Nigerians to be good ambassadors wherever they find themselves.”

She spoke on efforts by the Nigerian government to educate citizens visiting Saudi Arabia to avoid getting into trouble by ensuring that they keep watch over their bags.

Dabiri-Erewa stated, “In particular, and this is a fact, Ethiopian Airlines and Egyptian Airlines; there are always cases of when you get there, you see something in your bag. So, it is now mandatory for these airlines and for all those travelling to ensure that you identify your bags before you board. That has helped.

“It is important that if you are going to Saudi Arabia with any of these airlines, you identify your bags. We have had cases where you just get to Saudi Arabia and somebody will knock on your door that something was found in your bag. It is mandatory for these airlines to screen these bags before you board the passengers.

“The case of Saudi Arabia is particularly worrisome because maybe, some of them did not commit the crime. One Nigerian was freed not too long ago because of the intervention of our mission in Jeddah, which turned out that he actually did not carry the drug.

“The embassy fully intervened and he was freed. There is one that has a court case and the embassy is fully involved and hopefully, he too will be freed.”

However, she maintained that drug trafficking was a crime, which must be punished whenever it was truly established.

Dabiri-Erewa also spoke on the resurgence of xenophobic attacks in South Africa, drug and cult wars involving Nigerians, saying that the Nigerian government was making the necessary interventions through diplomatic channels.

Trump Threatens To Shut Mexico Border, Again

Trump Threatens To Shut Mexico Border, Again

Trump threatens to shut Mexico border, again

On thursday, President Donald Trump dropped a threat to close the US-Mexican border again this disclosure made in a tweet that America’s southern neighbour is allowing illegal immigrants to cross-over without restriction.

"May close the Southern Border!” the president wrote.

“Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action," he said.

"Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such as BAD laws."

Can we say that new threat to shut one of the world’s busiest borders, separating two countries with massive economic and cultural links, shows Trump is doubling down on his bid to make immigration a keystone of the gathering 2020 reelection campaign ?

The Mexican President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has rejected Trump's criticism, telling journalists:
"We are doing something on this issue." "We are going to help in every way we can. We don't in any way want a confrontation with the United States," he said. But Lopez Obrador said that a solution would depend on "fundamentally addressing the causes of migration."

 Trump will likely highlight the issue when he hosts a campaign rally in Michigan later Thursday. On Wednesday, he referred to the need for more border walls to stop "people pouring in." "Other countries stand there with machine-guns ready to fire.

We can't do that," he told Fox News. "We are building massive, many, many miles of walls right now, and we are gearing up to do many more."
