Long live the long-limbed African chicken
(Washington University in St. Louis) For generations, household farmers in the Horn of Africa have selectively chosen chickens with certain traits that make them more appealing. Some choices are driven by the farmers' traditional courtship rituals; others are guided by more mundane concerns, such as taste and disease resistance. The result is the development of a genetically distinct African chicken -- one with longer, meatier legs, according to new research . But that 3,000-year-old local breed type is threatened by the introduction of commercial cluckers.

Baby blue-tongues are born smart
(Macquarie University) Young Australian eastern blue-tongue lizards (Tiliqua scincoides) are every bit as clever as adults, researchers have found. Life is hard for baby blue-tongues. As soon as they are born, they are on their own, with neither parental support nor protection. Adults of the species can grow to 600 millimetres long and enjoy the benefits of thick scales and a powerful bite, but the young are much smaller and thus more vulnerable to predation.

Out of the Blue: Six Non-Medication Ways to Relieve Depression
Despite the title, this is not an anti-medication book. In fact, Bill O’Hanlon, a much-published psychotherapist and author, writes in Out of the Blue: Six Non-Medication Ways to Relieve Depression that medication can help, and that he respects each individual’s choice. This respect, along with his creativity and understanding that we must seek out what works for each person, is palpable throughout the book. As a young man, O’Hanlon was depressed to the point of considering suicide. A friend talked him out of it, and gave him hope and an alternative — all of which led to O’Hanlon’s remarkable forty-year ...

Blue Cross Combatting Opiate Addiction By Lowering Prescription Counts
BOSTON (CBS) – Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is battling back against a growing concern with opiate abuse. The insurer has become the first in the region, and possibly in the country, to cut back on prescribing popular pain medications. Executives say prescription painkillers are too easily accessible for patients. So, under the plan, most patients get an initial 15-day prescription with just one refill, which is much less than in previous years. “The program is to make sure people get the pain medication they need and get the right amount of those pain medications,” Blue Cross Chief Physician John Fal...

Methylene blue for toxic shock?
This article review the experimental and clinical literature suggesting that methylene blue may have a role in reversing distributive shock (caused by vasodilatation). The two primary causes of distributive shock are anaphylaxis and sepsis. Certain drug overdoses, particularly those associated with dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers (e.g., nifedipine and amlodipine) can also produce shock from vasodilatation. Experimental evidence indicates that the nitric oxide-cyclic guanosine monophosphate pathway is a key factor in producing distributive shock; methylene blue selectively inhibits this pathway.  There are limit...
