Steroid tablets repeated use may cause diabetes, osteoporosis and cataracts in asthma patients: Study – more lifestyle

More than one-quarter of asthma patients have been prescribed potentially dangerous amounts of steroid tablets, suggests a recent study.

With the findings, researchers warned that the prescription of dangerous amounts of steroid tablets puts them at greater risk of serious side-effects.

Researchers, led by the University of Queensland Professor John Upham, analysed data from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) to find out how often Australians with asthma were taking repeated courses of steroid tablets. The study was published in the Medical Journal of Australia.

Professor Upham said the study looked at more than 120,000 cases where asthma patients were given one or more prescriptions for steroid tablets by their doctor between 2014 and 2018.

“Researchers found more than 25 per cent of those patients were more likely to have a chronic condition,” Professor Upham said.

“Short courses of steroid tablets can be effective at treating asthma attacks in the short

The future of speakers (I hope)

Last year I wrote that Buchardt Audio‘s popular bookshelf speaker, the S400, was near endgame material. It sounded good enough that I felt it would be difficult to find a speaker that was a clear upgrade without opting for something larger or in a different price category altogether. Nearly a year later, I stand by those comments.

But if such qualities were true with the S400, they are doubly so for the company’s new flagship bookshelf, the Buchardt A500. The A500 may look nearly identical to the S400 from the front, but on the inside, this is an all-new, far improved speaker. One would hope, for a price tag starting at €3,500 (roughly $4,150).

Unlike the S400, the A500 has built-in amplifiers and processing in each speaker, allowing the company to eke every ounce of performance out of its hardware. This is common in studio monitors, but is only just

How cops took cue from West, used new tech in riots conspiracy probe | Delhi News

New Delhi: The chargesheet filed in the February riots conspiracy is not only the biggest one volume-wise, but also reportedly based on new scientific investigation techniques used by Delhi Police. Given the sensitivity and the complexity of the case, it is learnt that investigators used additional technological tools, other than the usual call details records analysis, etc.
For example, an experiment was conducted with Internet Protocol Details Records analysis, often used by police forces in the West nowadays. This is the study of internet traffic from smartphones that establishes communication between two entities through VoIP calls, etc. This came in handy as many accused were communicating through calls and chats on apps like WhatsApp and Telegram.
“We also used software for facial reconstruction to identify burnt bodies by superimposing skulls on the photograph of victims,” an investigator said. Police also used technology to follow the money trail, a source told

On the fourth of five consecutive nights of Creative Arts Emmys, a host of winners took well-deserved statues home for the very first time. Comedic genius Maya Rudolph took home her first ever Emmy for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for her work on Netflix’s Big Mouth. Joining Maya in the first-timer’s club were Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for their work composing the score for HBO’s Watchmen. Reznor and Finch now only need to win a Tony to EGOT, which in their case would technically be REGOT, as they they were also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

Microgrids Are The Future Of Energy

The vision of a household with a solar rooftop, a battery pack, and an EV in the garage is not just Elon Musk’s vision of the future of energy. It is a vision that many proponents of the renewable shift share, and it may be growing increasingly more realistic, thanks to information technology.

Distributed energy resources, the small-scale generation facilities such as rooftop solar installations that generate power to be used either on-site or near the site of generation, are an essential part of the renewable energy future. And software platforms for the management of these small-scale generation facilities are the key to making them work, according to analysts from Wood Mackenzie. In a recent report, Wood Mac’s researchers said they expected the amount of solar generation capacity and storage in North America, Europe, and Oceania to rise twofold by 2025. In the United States alone, solar capacity and storage
