NYPD Honors Flores for Work with Asbestos-Related Diseases
New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill recently appointed mesothelioma specialist Dr. Raja Flores to the Society of Honorary Police Surgeons. The prestigious appointment stems from Flores’ continued, long-running service to so many first responders — particularly policemen and firemen from the 9/11 World Trade Center (WTC) terrorist attack in 2001. Although Flores has received many honors throughout his medical career, this one might be his most appreciated. “This is a huge honor for me,” Flores told Asbsetos.com. “I come from a family of cops. Police work is in my blood. My gra...

How EMDR Therapy Heals Trauma and Addiction
Life experiences, either negative or positive, have a significant impact on our thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. Adverse life experiences such as abuse, neglect, violence, or emotional distress may have serious consequences later in life, such as mental illness or addiction. In treating individuals who suffer from addiction, it is important to address any co-occurring trauma, PTSD, or related symptoms within the setting of a drug and alcohol rehab facility because, in most instances, these traumatic events or experiences play a role in the person’s addictive behaviors. Therefore, the addiction cannot be fully overco...

Distinguishing a Majorana zero mode using spin-resolved measurements
One-dimensional topological superconductors host Majorana zero modes (MZMs), the nonlocal property of which could be exploited for quantum computing applications. We use spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy to show that MZMs realized in self-assembled Fe chains on the surface of Pb have a spin polarization that exceeds that stemming from the magnetism of these chains. This feature, captured by our model calculations, is a direct consequence of the nonlocality of the Hilbert space of MZMs emerging from a topological band structure. Our study establishes spin-polarization measurements as a diagnostic tool to distingu...
