Los pymes se levantan contra la intervención gubernamental y la sobrerregulación

Related media - Connected media Los pequeños y medianos empresarios, representados por la patronal Cepyme, han alzado su voz contra la «intervención» y la «sobrerregulación» del Gobierno. Durante la Asamblea General, varios empresarios leyeron un manifiesto «por la libertad de empresa» donde expresaron su compromiso y su preocupación por las políticas que afectan las relaciones empresariales. En el evento, el Congreso de Representantes del Gobierno contó con la presencia de José Luis Escrivá, aunque la alcaldesa de Dardos y vicepresidenta segunda y ministra de Trabajo, Yolanda Díaz, también estaba involucrada. El acto fue rechazado por el presidente de la CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, y el presidente de Cepyme, Gerardo Cuerva. Cuerva denunció en su discurso que las medidas del Go...

Joe Biden admite cansancio en su primer debate contra Trump

Connected media - Related media El presidente de Estados Unidos, Joe Biden, comentó este martes que su desempeño en el primer debate contra su rival republicano, Donald Trump, se vio afectado por el agotamiento tras sus recientes viajes internacionales. Antes del debate, Biden visitó Francia y asistió al G7 en Italia en junio. «Decidí hacer varios viajes alrededor del mundo antes del debate, contra el consejo de mi equipo. Y casi me quedo dormido en el escenario», confesó Biden a los medios, reconociendo que su elección de mantener esos viajes en su agenda oficial no fue la más acertada. Biden aclaró que sus declaraciones no son una excusa, sino una explicación, y subrayó la importancia del encuentro para su campaña de cara a las elecciones del 8 de noviembre. El desempeño d...

Detienen a un joven después de un incidente en la Universidad de Sydney

Connected media - Connected media Un joven de 22 años fue detenido por la policía australiana en el campus de la Universidad de Sydney, causando alarma entre los estudiantes y el personal universitario.

Según la cadena de televisión australiana ABC, un adolescente subió a un autobús después de la alerta, lo que complicó la situación y aumentó el nivel de riesgo percibido. Las fuerzas de seguridad actuaron rápidamente y arrestaron al joven poco después. Aunque se pres...

Barbra Streisand’s Ozempic Comment to Melissa McCarthy Prompts a Conversation – Generic English

Related media - Linked media As the drugs have grown in popularity, so too has the pressure for public figures to disclose whether they’re using them. Some have made an event out of revealing they take medication — perhaps none more notably than Oprah Winfrey, who announced in People magazine that she was taking a weight loss drug and “done with the shaming.” She later hosted a prime-time special devoted to weight stigma and the new medications. Elon Musk was one of the earliest proponents, writing on Twitter in 2022 after being asked how he had become so “fit, ripped & healthy” that he was taking another drug, Wegovy. Some experts worry that fixating on who is and is not taking the drugs can transmit a damaging message about bodies and weight. “It should not be something that pe...

First Patient Begins Sickle Cell Gene Therapy That F.D.A. Approved – Generic English

Associated media - Related media Top of the Waiting List Last week, Kendric came prepared for the stem cell collection — he has spent many weeks in this hospital being treated for pain so severe that on his last visit, even morphine and oxycodone could not control it. He brought his special pillow with a Snoopy pillowcase that his grandmother gave him and his special Spider-Man blanket. And he had a goal. “I want to be cured,” he said. Bone marrow stem cells, the source of all the body’s red and white blood cells, are normally nestled in a person’s bone marrow. But Kendric’s doctors infused him with a drug, plerixafor, which pried them loose and let them float in his circulatory system. To isolate the stem cells, staff members at the hospital inserted a catheter into a vein in Kendri...

The Ages When You Feel Most Lonely and How to Reconnect – Generic English

Associated media - Related media When Surgeon General Vivek Murthy went on a nationwide college tour last fall, he started to hear the same kind of question time and again: How are we supposed to connect with one another when nobody talks anymore? In an age when participation in community organizations, clubs and religious groups has declined, and more social interaction is happening online instead of in person, some young people are reporting levels of loneliness that, in past decades, were typically associated with older adults. It’s one of the many reasons loneliness has become a problem at both the beginning and end of our life span. In a study published last Tuesday in the journal Psychological Science, researchers found that loneliness follows a U-shaped curve: Starting from yo...

Study Suggests Genetics as a Cause, Not Just a Risk, for Some Alzheimer’s – Generic English

Connected media - Associated media “This reconceptualization that we’re proposing affects not a small minority of people,” said Dr. Juan Fortea, an author of the study and the director of the Sant Pau Memory Unit in Barcelona, Spain. “Sometimes we say that we don’t know the cause of Alzheimer’s disease,” but, he said, this would mean that about 15 to 20 percent of cases “can be tracked back to a cause, and the cause is in the genes.” The idea involves a gene variant called APOE4. Scientists have long known that inheriting one copy of the variant increases the risk of developing Alzheimer’s, and that people with two copies, inherited from each parent, have vastly increased risk. The new study, published in the journal Nature Medicine, analyzed data from over 500 people with two copies...

Lead in Beethoven’s Hair Offers New Clues to Mystery of His Deafness – Generic English

Linked media - Linked media As he lay on his deathbed, his publisher gave him a gift of 12 bottles of wine. By then Beethoven knew he could never drink them. He whispered his last recorded words: “Pity, pity — too late!” For a composer, deafness had been perhaps the worst affliction. At age 30, 26 years before his death, Beethoven wrote: “For almost 2 years I have ceased to attend any social functions, just because I find it impossible to say to people: I am deaf. If I had any other profession, I might be able to cope with my infirmity, but in my profession it is a terrible handicap. And if my enemies, of whom I have a fair number, were to hear about it, what would they say?” When he was 32, Beethoven mourned that he could not hear a flute, or a shepherd singing, which, he wrote, “br...
