Training dogs to sniff out COVID-19
"They can sniff out counselors late blood sugar levels in diabetics, drugs, explosive chemicals used in bombs, and as many dog owners know any food in one hundred meter radius. dokes have notorious powerful noses with hundreds of millions of central sceptres that can pick up traces of substances at just one pop trillion. And so now teams around the world from Lebanon to the UK attesting out dog's olfactory abilities when it comes to sniffing out cubic nineteen. One of those putting hounds on the viral hunt is Dominic Cork a professor at the National Veterinary School of. In front first phase is to train the dog to put his nose in coon and sniff. So we knew that if he story then we put some positive sample in this goal and dogs are going to one whole week but they'll in the cones and everything is made as a game I'm Nichole Davis, and this is science weekly. We Got Dominique on the line to ask him a bit more about how you actually train dogs to sniff out a disease. Unfortunately, the audio isn't great so about that but the first question I wanted to ask Monique was exactly when he first decided to ton his dogs noses towards K. Nineteen well, it's I'm a I'm head of a Canine Sports Medicine unit that the vet, school in our fault. And and we are working a lot on working dog I'm also involved in search and rescue dogs instead thirty five years as firefighters. And I've always been working on Doug affection actually. So we also have a big program in the. Vet. School, which is Naza. He's in the goal of the program is to develop the medical detection dogs in in France and so when when the COVID did show up, we had a meeting It was on the ninth of March I remember and. The. First question was, what are we going to use samples? So we checked everything in the graffiti and we saw that the the the sweat under the armpit that would be very few chance of bessie of contamination and actually has no passive condemnation. The dog is not sensible. So we make so that the dogs do not tach at any moment, the samples than we started with such rescue dog from different fire departments. Minute Ducasse what two weeks to consider that it was working in the. And that's what we've been doing for six months. So, let's get to the nuts and bolts here. What is it that the dogs are sniffing Anita? You say you take samples from People's armpits. Similarly, people use an awful lot of deodorants and other toiletries at does that get in the way of things dogs sniffing the virus sniffing the? Effects of the virus when the virus enters add a sale, the viruses replicating also using the Senate. To produce his own proteins he's on molecules and these chemical molecules they have to go out of the buddy. They can go out food the European through the feces for the tears and through the sweat. So that's what the dogs are looking for, and that's been a quite a few studies in the past showing that insalled cultures different virus were producing different others. Let's go nemo. Valetta. Organic compounds. And that's what we are looking for now to answer questions regarding the utterance in perfumes and so on. The key point for these dogs is to have some top quality and fresh positive samples in all the to make the in printing. So we're GONNA need roughly eighteen positive samples that are fresh. We don't rely only on a on A. Positive results also asked samples to hospitals coming from people who have chemical symptoms. The scan that he's typical etcetera etcetera, and if you do it this way while the dogs reading in memory, the specific other and you can put any type of the. or perfume this is not a problem. It would be a problem if the people who are using only one brand of the audience in the same product. But the Zillions of different types of the in perfume. So the only Common Otter, the dogs are finding in the eighty something samples that they are sniffing at the beginning is the the covid and that's what we want to focus on that. Domini, how do you train the dogs I'm what do they do? Once they find a positive sample today sit down or bark or how do they signal that they found something To train, the dogs are using some what we call a faction guns that. Developed that's a good way to not have the dog in contact with the samples and so the first phases to train the dog to put his nose in the cone in sniff, and so we do that too. If he story then we put some positive sample in this in the dogs are going to for one whole week. Now going to put down those in the cones so that the imprinted with the specific honor of the positives and then with more. With some neutral, which means the swabs without anything, and then we put some negative samples and wing prisoner amount of corns. We increase the amount of negative samples. We put some some lines. We've only negatives on the positives and everything is made as a game. In other words, the dog is getting his story when he finds the positive most of the time, we asked the doctor sit in front of the. That's pretty easy to obtain. But if the dog is marking differently barking or scratching or whatever I don't care because it's the important thing is to have the dog marking correct simple. What is important is to keep the motivation of the dog and the motivation of the dog is coming through the interaction with the duck hander and through the fact that he's rewarded when he works good and plays with his a duck handler. Happiness is to keep going for working dogs. A key issue that some skeptics of this approach have raised is that you might be able to tell someone with covert from somebody who doesn't have cable but can you really tell apart someone who has covered from someone who has another virus like flu? For example what do you say to that? We are starting right now to check if the dogs are mocking? Some people with other types of virus infections or other type chronic disease like lung cancers, auditees, and so on. But there has been some studies a lot of studies trying to identify the volatile organic compounds coming from different types of virus that have been put in south counter and each time it shows that the other print of the virus coming from these vetting are any compounds is specific to a virus. Would we see in terms of practical results is that there's a lot of times where the dog has been more accurate than the PCR. We've got some people with negative that were marked by the dogs. Samples were remarkably the dogs we send back the anonymous number of these samples to the hospitals, the remade the PCR, the our positive. We also have some negative people that were marked by the dogs. We have a refugee at ten cases like this where we told the hospital. Okay. These people are positive for us and they couldn't get in touch with these people but these people went back to the hospital a few days later and they were clinically covid nineteen and most of the time they were with digestive simple. You have to keep in mind also that that when you when you look for virus in the nose. You don't look for the virus at the other end of the buddy. Just. How accurate is this at? What kind of results are you getting with dogs? The accuracy of the dogs is measured for two terms of sensitivity which means that the doug doesn't miss some positives and specificity which means deduct doesn't miss some negatives. Sensitivity is the most important and. The values that we obtained are between ninety up to nine hundred, nine point five percent in Dora sensitivity and the specificity is always close to a hundred percent. So this entity is that say ninety five percent while it means that you might have some false positive, but it's no big dipped. One or two percent of positives. The big deal would be to miss some positives and actually this is not something that happens with the dog. So you can take that in any sense results are good as long as the dogs are well trained.

Neville Heath AKA The Lady Killer
"We're going to dive into the brutal murders committed by Neville Heath better sown as the lady killer never was responsible for the grisly murders of two young women in England during nineteen forty six at attempted declaim the lives of even more this week will cover nevels early life and his progression from petty criminal to con artist will track Krakow early. Criminal tendencies led to violence has mounting mistakes prevented him from achieving the life of luxury he desired next week. We'll dive into the murders. Themselves will explore the confusion. The British people felt when they learned that a handsome charming war pilot was capable of such atrocious acts. Neville Heath was born Ilford England on June six nine thousand nine hundred seventeen as Neville George George Cleveland Heath his parents Bessie and million heath where respectable middle-class people his father owned a barber shop and his mother was a homemaker. You're never came from a loving home with parents that doted on him but he was born. During an uncertain time in Europe in one thousand nine hundred seventeen eighteen world war one was still a year away from ending and Britain was dreamed the Brits initial positively about their nation's involvement in the war had changed after conscription had been enacted the previous year World War One was also the first time that Britain experienced air raids this this left the country exhausted from constant fear of attacks from above though unconfirmed the heath's claimed that Neville was born during one of these air raids aides though Neville may have entered this world in the midst of violence. His parents did their best to ensure. He had a happy home and a happy home home. It was never was a beautiful child he had golden curls shocking Blue Eyes Chubby pristine cheeks and a darling smile mile. He was the apple of his family's. I by nineteen twenty. They added to their little family unit. With the birth of Carroll. William clearly heath never loved having brother but Carol sadly died of tuberculosis at age to his death devastated six-year-old Neville before Carol Past Neville had been a happy pampered boy he had no experience with loss and therefore must have been torn apart after his brother's death. He was once again an only child Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode. Please note wrote. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg the late Chicago. Psychotherapist Jerry Rothman found that after experiencing a child's death there's a tendency for parents to become extremely overprotective towards surviving children and this forces those children to deal with their parents trauma in addition to their own. This can create a repression of the surviving child's feelings. These feelings can eventually be reawakened as adults when placed under severe stress the certainly rings true for Bessie and William who coddled Neville even more extremely after Carol's death. Even as a precious little boy he was already starting to exhibit criminal behavior never would steal steal cakes and other cheap items from local stores and then hide them in his room. Though he was scolded he was never severely punished. Many parents go easy on their children but this early leniency might have taught Neville just how much he could get away with bessie thought the things he stole were odd. God as they were never expensive items or things that he needed. She would say confused. There was no need to steal as he always had plenty at home. It should be noted that when nevels misdeeds were discovered his first instinct was to run away. This suggests an impulsiveness at the time of committing meeting his crimes a cooling off period would follow where he would workout what had happened before coming forward with an excuse and apology but Neville didn't stay privileged only child forever in nineteen twenty eight. The family had another son Michael. Whom they fondly called Mick Neville now eleven was elated. It seemed that he would finally get that brotherly bond that he had been robbed of years earlier. Unfortunately the for Neville he would soon be separated from his new brother. His parents saved up enough money to send Neville to the all boys Grammar School Rutledge located in a London suburb. He was sent away from home to get an education the year after his brother was born. Rutledge wasn't quite as fancy as the country's. He's more prestigious private schools but it was nevertheless something that Bessie and William had to stretch themselves thin to afford grammar schools in those days were heavily. We attended by middle class. Children with private schools reserved for the rich. Even today Britain's struggles with the lack of upward social mobility caused by the presence presence of private schools they remain relics of high status unreachable for those who are not born with money never would constantly yearn for that upper social tear throughout his life. Despite rutledge is solid reputation. His schooling proved to be an area of intense disappointment for him to Neville Rutledge was the JV team and he felt that he deserved to be on Varsity despite his discontent Neville excelled socially socially and athletically in his new environment he enamored teachers and the headmaster with his affable demeanor charm he was made a prefect which which put him into a leadership role it also gave him power. He likely should not have had at the time prefix were in charge of delegating canings. Tainting is a form of corporal punishment but involves a specific amount of hits or lashes with a cane or stick. The number of hits is dependent on the infraction his role of prefect put fourteen year old Neville in control of who might receive punishment and how severe it was Neville's parents had spoiled rather than punished him so the canings and corporal punishment that were common at rutledge were notable. They were likely Glee nevels first experience with violence as a reaction to wrongdoing in a series of studies conducted by Columbia University researcher Elizabeth Thompson Gurshkov found that the only benefit that could be derived from corporal punishment was immediate compliance but it's also strongly associated with encouraging future direct physical abuse and antisocial behavior antisocial behavior is characterized by person's inability to care about what's right and wrong as well as a tendency to ignore the feelings of others not only was never learning that violent punishment brought about immediate results salts but those punishments were also potentially having a lasting impact on the way he developed during his time at Rutledge nevels family moved to a large property and Wimbledon once they're bessie rented out their spare rooms for extra money. Returning from school breaks to a large home allowed to be ten d came from a family of high status but to maintain the illusion he had to cover up the fact that his mother was a landlady nevels obsession session with hiding his background grew even further due to rutledge his curriculum. The new headmaster Edward Varnish wanted to model the syllabus to compete with Britain's more prestigious schools aspiration was encouraged in students in particular rutledge was very specific about teaching their boys to speak proper standard English and to learn the mannerisms of the elite as Neville's desire for wealth and status grew. He began to embrace the tools he he had his disposal. It was nineteen thirty-three and Neville was fifteen by now.

Sri Lanka child sex tourism very widespread, warns UN rights panel
"Scale of Sri Lanka's child sex tourism industry has reached such worrying proportions at the authorities should take action immediately. You appointed independent rights experts said, on Thursday, noting that some impoverished parents are being forced to sell their children in an interview with you and unused Daniel Johnson veteran, member of the committee on the rights of the child, Renata winter said that the scourge was very widespread. Particularly in the north of the country. Ms winter also commented on the potential huge impact of the UN's budget crisis, which could see the committee, one of ten human rights treaty bodies whose experts work on voluntary basis struggle to hold its next hearing with Member States in September. I think according to the traditions of the country, they think that rape is something that can have only two girls and gals have to be protected, but according to the development of sexual problems made to children. It turned out that quite a lot of boys affected. As well. And that there is a tendency in several counter sensory Lanka's, one of them wear at the sex tourism addresses boys, first of all, and only them girls. And because the boys in this country are not protected by the law, we have to tell the county police, you have to include boys in Europe protection system is what so you're saying that there is no legal definition of sexual act on a boy, but there is for ago. Yes, that's it. And this is difficult because I do not want to say something that they do not know but you could think about the fact that people know that boys are not protected in the county, and therefore they come to the county to misuse boys, so we can be perhaps hopeful that the state party will act on your recommendations. But this isn't a new problem is it? But maybe you could tell me how widespread the problem is more in the north of the country. Perhaps how long has it been going on? And what specifically do you want? From the country in addition to the legal changes to the constitution how long it's going on in this data amount. I do not know I do know that in the north the boys are more attractive for tourists than in the out why it is. So I do not know but at the other hand, I can tell you what we want them to do besides changing the legislation what we want to do is first of all, that they commit themselves to deal with hotels with the tourism industry, and so on to prevent these things to happen. First of all, because if you allow people to come to your country, and if you know that why the come and do not want them to come for such purposes, then you have to deal with it, and you have to deal with travel agencies you have to deal with airports, where you have announcements you have to deal with hotels, who take those children, or if make a ties meant that they have somebody that is what we have to say this plea. Piece to accom- pain in your country. Please assist families that, that are so poor that they have to sell their children. I wanted to ask you about that. The report also highlights the really worrying finding the families are encouraging their children to go into the sex trade. So this really comes down to poverty, and what is the country expected to do to help those who are excluded a marginalized in society that will be the programs to assist very poor families, and especially those families there under the minimum income that is necessary for missing children. So first of all helped the family second, make sure that your children go to school and do not run around and third to something for very small children, who are not yet going to school and still armies you study and last question to you, how much is the government keeping up with the digital world? World and information communication technology. Is there a sense that it has the capacity to cope with the evident demand for sexual abuse of young children? I would not say that say Lanka is known as being super sport in technology. That is a problem, especially a cyber attack cyber bullying cyber information about availability of children, and so on, I do not think that they are up to where the should be in order to, to prevent that. But it would at least be good if they would accept the assistance of the cyberpolice that we have already in France in Paris cyberpolice, who could assist the county to develop a little more in the protection, part of the internet, for instance, I can you tell me how widespread the problem actually is this of child sexual abuse? I cannot give you numbers. I cannot give percentage but I can tell you, it's very widespread. It's one of those counties it's really widespread because parents are assisting the problem because they are so poor that they have nothing else to sell. Finally, maybe we could just turn to the budget issue that everyone's talking about as the committee on the rights of the child, your due to meet again in September. But how much could these budget restrictions that we're hearing about affect your meetings which are supposed to happen three times a year? We'll have they might affect us very heavily because we are the next one in the row to have a meeting in September. And if you do not have it ten six countries, and six other countries that we have to pre view will not be monitored, and that will have a huge impact and not only for this time, because we have been told that it is because of a money issue. But we also have been told that the money issue next year is not going to be better. So what will be the consequence that the money should come from our regular budget. If this is not the case, and maybe some Member States come and say, okay, we are going to bring you now the money for this session, who assist us, then when some other Member, States, come and see, are they are now on the payroll of this, this, and this Member State. So if the so called private assistance assistance from some good feeling friends of the different comedies. Do you know Justice has not only to be done? It has to be seen to be done, and what will then be seen. Then we will always have the possibility that somebody comes and says, yes, you have said something bad about that estate because another Member State has paid for it. That would be a really terrible situation to what extent you already implementing reforms and cost-cutting measures I would say to a Utah amount we tried to be as. Effective as possible. Explain how many you are in your committee. We are eighteen in our committee. We are working pro Bono. I do not know if people know that we are working pro Bono all eighteen of us and all the other members of all the other treaty bodies, our king pro Bono again. So, for us, it's not an issue to say, okay, not only two times become three times, become interact probono, because we really are devoted to our job. But it will be a set before it will be a huge issue if it would not try to be as effective as possible. And we really are trying, for instance, if we have done something we are going to send the information to another treaty body so that there is no obligation. And this issues will be strengthened and will be discussed next time when the treaty body bosses the, the president's meeting each other to find out where else we can have a collaboration, several of the general comments made to. Gather with another treaty body as said, we're trying to give information and get information from other treaty bodies. We tried to explain to Member States, please give us an information about your county that you can use for all the other tweet deposits as well. I will really at a critical juncture. We are really at a critical juncture. Yes. And it looks like and I do not want to be Bessie missed and ended the best mystic note, but it would look as if Member States say the time for human rights deal treaty. Bodies is over.

I was taken into an e with a life threatening illness severity night brain hemorrhage prior to this leading a happy healthy lifestyle. I just didn't expect something like this would happen to me the night it happened. I. Had come home from work a little earlier with a headache and watch some TV and I woke up then approximately eleven PM screaming with huge pain as if a sledgehammer had hit the back of my school, and I had a seizure then and collapsed. I was treated at sofa trial hospital Manchester with various oppressions over the next few weeks. My life now is updating to this new me, I have trouble with short term memory loss.

Having a stroke can have a devastating effect on your life and recovery especially difficult because the damaged areas of the brain. Paul permanently dead. All they I spoke to neurologist Tom com. Icu of the university of California, Los Angeles about research. He's pursuing to re-grow brain tissue after a stroke key cell types, in the brain the neurons that send the signals really are fixed after a certain age in humans somewhere between two and five years old. We don't get any more brain cells. And so we can't as a result regenerate, new brain cells themselves in large quantities. And so when there is a area of dead brain, you can't re-grow into that area. Normally from the brain next to it because the brain cells themselves, the neurons are what we call in the scientific field post, my Totic, they can't divide inform substantial quantities of new cells. Would you call the scarring than this? These that sells. Yes, what happens is the the area dies. And then some of these cells called glee proliferate and wall off the area of damage. And they participate along with other sales in the formation of scar. That helps contain the damage, but may also have a second effect of limiting some of the repair and recovery. How would that reflect in sort of the treatments you can give people currently as many will know, the there are no medical therapies for recovery in stroke. The treatment is activity based physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy. These are very limited in their efficacy. And so there are no therapies that stimulate recovery stroke, and what we've been focusing on is the science of what the sales do after stroke, and how we might develop medical therapies that enhance that recovery. Right. Yeah. How how is your lab investigating us? We're very interested in what the brain starts to do. And then gets and then get stock and doesn't progress fully. So we've been investigating the molecules that stimulate brain cells to form new connections or the. Molecules that stimulate blood vessels to grow and branch out in the tissue, adjacent to stroke. And our reasoning is if we can understand those molecules, we might understand why they don't produce a more full recovery, and then develop drugs that boost those molecular systems and boost recovery how you testing out the properties the
Elections loom in the DRC
"Will improve things I'm joined finally by Francesca Bomboko, executive director of Bessie specialists in political polling in the Democratic Republic of Congo Francesca. Thank you for joining us. First of all, what are the people running for president of Congo hoping to become president of it's a very large often, obviously dysfunctional country. How much of the Congo can any president actually hope to meaningfully govern. I mean, the the they can actually hope to govern the entire country. And I say that these phone my feel experience even though it's a huge country. Like you said, but like the last survey that we did we actually went into twenty six provinces of Congo more than four hundred and sixty nine sites and each time. There was somebody representing the state at that level. Even though most of them were not pay us oppose. But there were there, and we had to present a respect and we had to decline or entity and see what we're doing. So what do you think that the administrative framework of DRC is far more complex and fumble efficient that is normally thought of that at the very least is encouraging. But when we think of the potential next president of Congo in the decision that voters will make before they choose one. Does it strike you that this has been? About the identity and the persona and the personality of the candidates or of the policies. They're actually pursuing. Mean the vote is definitely a kink. India see, we can say that the food is ethnic. But also at the same time, I think that, you know, the general feeling general mood that we perceive in a survey. You know, is that most people are fed up with the current system. They just want to change. So regardless of which provinces that come from regardless of the ethnical background. They just want to change. And this is something that e- we see throughout the ages the sex of the person that we interview. So these are overall, you know, you're yearning for change that is quite strong and powerful India at the moment. Plus the fact that some of the candidates kind of excluded to participate to the elections. Some of the region I would say most of the region fund absolves, nobody coming from the ethnic background. So they have to to vote for somebody at not necessarily for somebody that belongs to the tribe belongs today overall ethnic identity, so as you've seen this election. What does it strike? You have been the actual issues have been the contests of policy which have have got voters interested, regardless of the fact that most everybody wants to change, and what do you think that I've seen it before? And this is something that come across what drastically in all the seven a result. But when we think that which is the most important challenges that the government will have to face after the elections. I mean, the number one issue is the economy definitely for thirty three percent to seven percent of the people that we of the respondent and. Strangely enough. The second issue is Justice and the third is security, and we would have thought, you know, before doing the survey the security will come. I I think it's overall the economy, as you know, poverty is well, you know, more than seventy percent of the relations are on the below the one dollar poverty line. And the economy's the number one issue definitely looking at the election itself. There has been a lot of nervousness certainly abroad. And I I know in Congo itself about whether this election will be free and fair and above all peaceful. How optimistic are you on the front not that much over overwhelming majority of the populations that we survey in October sixty six percent to be exact think that it's not going to be credible. It's not going to be transparent, and it's not going to be fair. So that's a lot of Senate and has been at searched consistently since the past two years. So this. Very high distrust of the electoral commissions, nonetheless, you know, when we ask them. Do you still a us didn't want to vote? Yes. More than any nine percent of the people wants to vote and winning to go out and vote. So this seems to be quite a contradiction over there. But that's understandable in the actual context because they do really feel that election will be the only to bring about change. And when asked them should we postpone the elections to have a more credible process. More transparence over only majority of the population says now, they don't want
