Effect of sex and sub-zero storage temperature on the microbial and oxidative stability of beef packed in a high-oxygen atmosphere after different vacuum ageing times
This study aimed to evaluate the effect of sex and sub-zero storage temperature on the microbial and oxidative stability of Belgian Blue beef packed in a high-oxygen atmosphere after different ageing times. Longissimus thoracis et lumborum from Belgian Blue young bulls and cull cows were aged at −1 or 4 °C for 80 days in vacuum. Every 20 days, samples were repackaged in a high-oxygen atmosphere (70/30% O2/CO2) and stored for 7 days (2 days at 4 °C + 5 days at 8 °C). Ageing at −1 °C had a protective effect against the growth of lactic acid bacteria and Enterobacteriaceae and myoglobin oxidation...

Fatal police shootings 40% more likely in states with higher gun ownership
The U.S. Constitution’s second amendment gives us the “right to bear arms,” but what if having a gun for protection is actually putting you more at risk of harm?

Use of ab interno Kahook Dual Blade trabeculectomy for treatment of primary congenital glaucoma.
CONCLUSION: Ab interno Kahook Dual Blade Trabeculectomy is a minimally invasive and potentially successful procedure for the treatment of congenital glaucoma. The safety profile of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery warrants consideration for congenital glaucoma patients, as they usually require iridocorneal angle surgery because pharmacologic therapy is typically inadequate.

Normative Values of Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in a Middle Eastern Population.
Conclusions: Our set of predicted normative data may be used to interpret measurements of pRNFL thickness in Middle Eastern patients. Our findings suggest that systemic conditions with potential ocular manifestations may require consideration in predictive models of pRNFL thickness, even in the absence of gross fundoscopic findings. Normative data from additional Middle Eastern populations are required to appraise our models, which adjust for common clinical confounders. PMID: 30310697 [PubMed]

Stories of sexual abuse and allegations have been front and center in our news for a while now. From the Me Too movement to the Catholic Church abuse cases to the recent Kavanaugh Hearings, we are faced with the harsh reality of how common sexual abuse really is in our society. But we are starting to talk about it and that is a good thing. My heart goes out to all those whose lives have been affected by sexual abuse. For many well-meaning men and women, these times are fraught with tension and confusion. A man might examine how he treats women and wonder if he should change his behavior.

Blog: A decision that defies logic, common sense and fair play
This week, UNISON members working for IFM Bolton are on strike. IFM is a company owned by the local NHS trust – a “subco” – which employs over 300 caterers, cleaners and porters at the Royal Bolton hospital. It’s an example of why our union has campaigned against these companies and forced a pause on more of them being set up – because just as we’ve always warned, once workers are outside of the NHS, they’re worse off. NHS workers are covered by nationally negotiated pay deals – like the recent one that ensured that over 100,000 low-paid NHS staff are paid at least the living wage for the first time. Yet...

Barred from the force for cancer – the government lists stopping police staff doing their jobs
There was outcry at UNISON’s police and justice conference today at the new lists that bar police staff from jobs for life. The police barred and advisory lists, brought in less than a year ago, are lists that police staff, special constables, and officers are added to if they are dismissed. The dismissal does not only have to be due to misconduct however, it also includes workers dismissed over attendance and performance, which means those dismissed for lack of attendance due to poor health. One member told conference that he had a colleague who was dismissed for lack of attendance due to depression, and a colleague dis...

Evidence for Gender Longevity Differences to Arise from Mating Strategies
That females live longer than males in numerous species is a topic of some interest to evolutionary theorists and other researchers in the life sciences. There are any number of possible explanations, but that this phenomenon exists in many different species tends to favor evolutionary arguments. Something fundamental to gender as it exists in most higher species is closely tied to aging, and the result is near always females that age more slowly than males. In the research noted here, scientists report on an experiment in fly populations that suggests this longevity difference will arise quite naturally from the differing...
