(Natural News) In yet another stunning example of tone-deaf hypocrisy, the Leftists running “tolerant” “free expression” Canada have proven once again that they are the Nazis in training, not Right-leaning, liberty-minded citizens. Authoritarianism is all the rage among the Canadian Left if you happen to run afoul of the “correct way of thinking.” Just like...

In this study, we examined early deaf, hearing signer and hearing non-signer individuals using diffusion MRI to evaluate the potential structural connectivity linked to the functional recruitment of the temporal voice area by face stimuli in deaf individuals. More specifically, we characterized the structural connectivity between occipital, fusiform and temporal regions typically supporting voice- and face-selective processing. Despite the extensive functional reorganization for face processing in the temporal cortex of the deaf, macroscopic properties of these connections did not differ across groups. However, both occipi...

AbstractRetrospective study of the prelingual cochlear implantation programme under government scheme done at medical college hospital in central India. Forty-two prelingually deaf children screened and sent for cochlear implantation at our centre From March 2015 to Feb 2018 were reviewed with respect to their age, sex, preimplantation hearing aid use, surgical technique for cochlear implantation, type of FDA (USA) approved cochlear implant, post operative speech therapy and its outcome with respect to categories of auditory perception and speech intelligibility scoring were compared for children younger than 4  years...

(University of Copenhagen) New study from the University of Copenhagen reports that political discussions about genetically modified foods have ignored concerns among Danes that GM foods are 'unnatural'. This is very regrettable, according to Jesper Lassen, a researcher who has investigated public attitudes about genetic modification for the past 25 years.

In a recent paper, Matsushima et al. reported about a 2 years and 6 months-old male who developed non-syndromic, progressive impaired hearing by the age of 9 months [1]. The family history was positive for hypoacusis in the father, mother, one maternal and paternal uncle each, maternal grandmother and grandfather, maternal grand uncle, and maternal great-grandmother [1]. Hearing impairment in the index case was attributed to the variant m.7445A>G variant outside the tRNA (Ser) gene [1]. The index case had also inherited the variant c.235delC in the GJB2 gene from his father [1].

We would like to thank Dr. Josef Finsterer and Dr. Zarrouk-Mahjoub for their insightful and constructive comments on our study [1]. At first, m.7445A>G heteroplasmy rates reported by Tranah et al. was based on the analysis on platelets [2] and our study was based on the analysis on whole blood cells. Thus, the heteroplasmy rates of the two studies cannot be compared because heteroplasmy rates are various in various organs in cases with mitochondrial diseases [3,4].

This article presents the various aspects of HIV/AIDS care for deaf people in Burundi to assess social inequalities in health especially the access to preventive care. Our work is particularly focused on identifying the factors that hinder the access of deaf people to HIV/AIDS care in developing countries such as Burundi. The study is based on a literature review and a qualitative study with stakeholders and beneficiaries. The literature review was conducted on reports or other official documents that were made by various stakeholders involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS. A qualitative approach was made of interviews wit...
