Walnuts slow bowel cancer growth

According to researchers, just a handful of the nuts, which are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, could reduce inflammation in bowel cancer cells and reduce the blood supply to the tumour, which inhibits its growth.
Bowel cancer is the third most common type of the disease worldwide and the second leading cause of death in Western countries, so it's essential research is done.
It's also been found that 30-50 per cent of bowel cancer in men and 20 per cent in women could be prevented by adopting a healthier diet and exercising more.
The US researchers at Harvard Medical School experimented on mice, finding that those fed a diet high in walnuts displayed tumours containing ten times more omega-3s than the control group.
The mice were fed the equivalent of two servings (around 57g) of walnuts for humans, while the control group had a similar diet but without the walnuts.
"Our research demonstrates that a walnut diet causes significant changes in the expression profile of miRNAs in colorectal cancer tissue," Dr Christos Mantzoros, of Harvard Medical School, said.
The tumour growth rate was also much slower in the mice that were fed walnuts, but it's hard to know yet if humans would react in the same way.
But that's no reason not to grab a handful of walnuts, as they have plenty of health benefits anyway. They're also very good for the heart, thanks to the amino acid l-arginine, and they contain very powerful antioxidants.
Walnuts are also great for those on a diet, as they help you to feel fuller for longer and are a healthy and easy snack to enjoy at home or out and about.
If you need ideas for incorporating walnuts, try adding them to a salad instead of croutons for a healthy crunch. They can also be ground and used instead of breadcrumbs on chicken or fish.

puritanisme when it comes to matters

merci to the summer tradition of topless sunbathing.

Since France's summer-vacation season kicked off in early July, the press has repeatedly sounded the alarm over the shrinking number of topless women on the nation's beaches. As eagle-eyed reporters have made quite clear, the prevailing trend among sun-loving women these days is to actually use both pieces of their bikini. Le Monokini, C'est Fini! shouted Le Parisien in its July 21 report from a Mediterranean beach, using the preferred term for one-piece toplessness. "Nude Breasts Are Less Trendy" concurred the free daily Metro France. "The fashion has become common, and as a result, less appealing," explained sociologist Jean-Claude Kaufmann in an accompanying Metro France interview. Some observers, including Kaufmann, have noted too that the return to the two-piece is a response to rising concerns about skin cancer.

But the more concealing swimwear trend is also part of a wider social movement by younger French women who are shunning the less inhibited habits of previous generations. If burning bras and going topless were the ways French women of the 1970s and '80s demonstrated their freedom, their daughters and grand-daughters seem less comfortable with exposed flesh. "We're seeing a return to more [conservative] and family values," said Kaufmann. "Modesty and discretion are in fashion now."

A survey titled "Women and Nudity" released by polling agency Ifop captures the move to cover up. It indicates younger French women not only have a problem with nudity but actually consider themselves prudish. Fully 88% of the women questioned qualified themselves as pudique — a term that can mean anything from modest or prim to full-blown priggish.

And they aren't joking. Though 90% said they get naked with their husband or partner, nearly 60% actively avoid being nude around their children. Sixty-three percent of respondents said they also refuse to undress around women friends. About 22% said they considered a woman in her underwear already naked.

With sensitivities like those, it's little wonder that the poll also found that French women had strong opinions about public nakedness. Nearly 50% said they were bothered by total nudity on beaches or naturist camps, and 37% said they were disturbed by publicly exposed breasts or buttocks. Forty-five percent of respondents reported they'd simply prefer to see a lot less flesh — male or female — hanging out in full view.

Those attitudes got even more pronounced with respondents ages 18 to 24. Fully 25% of women in that age group described themselves as very pudique, and 20% said they considered any nudity tantamount to indecency. That, sociologists say, helps explain the changing scenery on French beaches. Younger women disinclined to bare their more private parts make up the majority of female sunbathers; those still willing to go topless are usually older French women who blazed the trail all those years ago. Or as the Times of London's website phrased it, "Only the Oldies Go Topless on French Beaches."

"There aren't any rules, but yeah, it's true, when you're at the beach and look around, the only topless women anymore are older," said a 19-year-old named Elodie as she visited Paris' summertime artificial beach known as Paris Plage. Elodie pointed out that a municipal fine — and frequently lousy weather — made going topless at Paris Plage a nonstarter. When asked whether she went topless on vacation beaches — and what factors made her decide when she did and didn't — Elodie gave a reply as chilly as it was logical. "All those things," she said, "are personal concerns."

Good point — and one apparently leading most French women of Elodie's age to keep themselves bikini'd up. But the contrast with U.S. practices is hard not to notice. After all, American women visiting France these days have no qualms about going topless. And plenty of young American women are only too happy to playfully flash their wares in exchange for a few beads. In some ways, the puritanical swimsuit now seems to be on the other torso — a new French squeamishness that will doubtless leave some Americans, well, titillated.

Okonomiyaki (Savory Japanese Cabbage Pancake)

You can find dashi powder, tenkasu, and the condiments for serving at your local Japanese market, or in the Asian foods section of the grocery store. Additionally, some markets carry special okonomiyaki flour, which includes flavorings and a little yam starch to give the pancake a spongier consistency; if you use this specialized flour, only add the water per the recipe below, and skip the dashi stock powder.

Makes 1 big pancake, large enough to split

For pancake apartments for rent:

1/3 teaspoon dashi stock powder
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
3 tablespoons tenkasu (tempura bits)
2 cups cabbage, chopped into thin strips
1/3 cup chopped green onions
3/4 strips bacon, chopped into 2 to 3 inch-long pieces

For serving:

Kewpie mayo (regular works fine too!)
Okonomi sauce (or a homemade version: 3 tablespoons ketchup plus 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce plus 1/2 teaspoon honey)
Aonori (seaweed flakes)
Sesame seeds

In a large bowl, mix the dashi stock powder into the water until it dissolves. Whisk in the flour, egg, and tenkasu to make a batter reenex.

Add in the cabbage and most of the green onion (reserving a pinch). Fold into the batter until combined.

Heat a large greased pan over medium-high. Dump the cabbage batter into the pan; using a small spatula, flatten batter top and edges into a round pancake about 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick. I've found that the less craggy the edges of the pancake, the easier it is to flip reenex.

Cover the top of the pancake with the bacon pieces in a single layer. Cook pancake this way for 3 to 4 minutes, then flip—using a big-old flat spatula—so the bacon-side is down. Cook until bacon has crisped, about 5 minutes, and then flip again to cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, bacon side up.

Slide pancake onto a large plate. If your mayonnaise and okonomi sauce aren’t in squeeze bottles, scoop a spoonful of each into a bottom corner of separate plastic bags. Snip the corner with scissors to allow for precision-squirting. Zig-zag the okonomi sauce over the top in one direction, and the Kewpie (or regular) mayo in the other. Sprinkle remaining green onions, aonori, and sesame seeds over the sauces.


Like many people, I love, lovelorn, cried in love, laugh. Once believed, had lost. I have to let go, but never forget.

When not allowed I love, when can be open and aboveboard together can I got my heart broken. There was a time I smile fate Is it right? In make fun of and I, then the joke too far. I believe, and I first met without warning, exceeding one's expectations into a class. Is a table of the opportunity, we will gradually familiar, fall in love with each other. I thought I just talks to a love, met her enough, I'll go with her to the end vacuum tube, then I know that I just thought, there are too many helpless life, not by people.

The beginning of love is sweet, do a little thing for himself will be happy for a long time. The beginning of love is blind, think each other is perfect, even though we know there is no perfect man exist. Rupture outcome from the first fight, each other in each other's heart scratch, until pain to numb.

Because love become lonely, lost love become more lonely. I love a nostalgic person, don't know about love people Is it right? All like me. From the little drops of life will be involved in the shadow of the past, even a very short, even for a moment brushless dc motor.

Love, let us grow, let us recognize my own shortcomings. At the time of the vow you feel naive, did you feel naive. Once said to give happiness, always be my dignity away, then we really only have dignity.

Somebody we love or not love, the answer is yes. Unable to recover the past just let you experience, true meeting may not come. So pack mentality Amethyst earrings, adjust good state, when love comes, let go to love.

Taking the bite out of the non-malware threat

Another round of viral attacks apparently masquerading as ransomware brought operations across industries to a halt last week. And the targets were anyone from multinational shipping corporations to even Chernobyl, of all places.
Following WannaCry and what appears to be the wiper mimicking the 2016 ransomware Petya, three things have become reliably predictable:
In conversations with enterprises large and small, I get asked how to stop a ransomware or malware attack 42 times a day;
No matter how many layers of defense you’ve deployed and how responsible users at your company are, you may still get hit Best Restaurants in Hong Kong;
Everyone now offers an infallible product to protect all the things against everything. The problem is gone for as low as free, averaging somewhere around $20. So that’s easy: click, sign up, done.
Oh wait… After getting a new anti-virus and upon further reading, you now must ensure that:
All your employees do regular backups;
All your employees disable macros;
All your employees religiously update their devices to ensure their OS, AV, Flash, Java and browsers are solid;
All your employees enable “show file extensions” (assuming you have figured out how to make sure your team understands the meaning of “file extension”);
We all click on and open the right things only;
All corporate systems are patched… (I mean remain patched just as they have always been, right?);
Train — retrain — train — retrain — train;
Use strong passwords that can’t be brute-forced;
Block Tor.
There are also suggestions that we could use artificial intelligence at extended end points that (of course) cannot be beaten because there is no reliance on heuristics or signatures, which is to say it’s not just antivirus anymore.
As always, the response to a security event of a global magnitude is stamping “anti the thing in the news” on a product and chasing flashing lights. We are now 17 years removed from the I LOVE YOU worm luring unassuming users with promises of Anna Kournikova’s photos, and yet we have another piece of malware knocking off nuclear power plants and multinational oil and shipping companies.
While not a new challenge, one would think the sheer scale of these attacks should inspire behavior change and generate more new solutions. Yet, we get the same recipe as we’ve heard over the past 20 years — deploy tools in the network to catch suspicious events, train your employees, back up your data, segment your networks and use the best anti-virus.
So first of all, anti-virus is dead.
Okay, dying. Every week my team talks to companies that have liberated themselves from this shell game. However scary that may be, it is bad tech that only feeds the underlying problem.
Deploying network security tools.
Yes, you probably have to do some of this while keeping in mind that these are merely speed bumps that do have certain value. What’s important is to stay nimble and ready to switch providers on the fly understanding that you can/should only jam so much on your endpoints.
Training your team to only open and click on the things that are not harmful Propecia.
Take it from someone with 20 years of information security experience — not practical advice. Flip that script and operate knowing that your employees will and should click on and open things that are bad. Why? Because the current state of phishing is juvenile and, inevitably, the sophistication of attacks will increase in direct proportion to the efficacy of any training program. Build processes that enable your team to do their work and make mistakes.
Backing up data is not a new thing nor is the challenge of protecting these backups.
It used to be that storage was so deep in the network onion that most organizations treated storage security like hardware security — if someone has access to my storage array, they already have access to everything. But things have changed with cloud backups, which is why more thought needs to be given to what actually is worth storing and protecting. With almost 70 percent of stored corporate data having no or negligible business or regulatory value, attempting to protect these massive amounts of data makes no practical or security sense.
Of course, the big data economy encourages companies — big and small — to save and protect everything even though the math tells a different story. Perhaps the real important debate is whether liability will transfer to a cloud provider that encourages its customers to store and make available for search all of their communications and knowledge.
When in response to a malware attack global enterprises with great resources end up shutting down their systems, including critical communications, and move to employees’ personal devices for texts and emails, it is time to rethink the game of storing everything, which is making us more vulnerable and exposed.
Anyone knows that you cannot lose what you don’t have. By the same token, if you are in control of your data that is not stored server-side and expires when it’s no longer needed, a task of protecting less information that does need to be recorded becomes increasingly more manageable. When you build reliably ephemeral operations that are not dependent upon the hope that storing everything may someday prove useful, the notice that “the files expiring in a week are encrypted and will be deleted unless…” just doesn’t have the same teeth cloud computing.
The bottom line is that the recent wave of viral malware attacks is nothing than more of the same. Email is vulnerable, network security is difficult, anti-virus is nowhere near being effective and everyone has a best product that will fix all of the things on the network or your endpoints. There will almost certainly be the next “NotPetya,” probably sooner than we expect. Why not flip the equation?
Use math to your advantage. Encrypt your communications and data proactively. Deploy tools to verify participants in critical communications.
Perhaps most importantly, understand that just because recorded communications have been the norm in the past 10 years, it doesn’t mean that we have to work in the paradigm that is no longer justified by current security environment. Ephemeral communication tools provide you the opportunity to rely on math to take control over your communications, how long it lives and how long it is accessible to intended recipients only. So you no longer have to protect all the things. Your move now.
