Neue Studie ergibt: Xlear tötet und/oder deaktiviert SARS-CoV-2; Wirksamkeit gegen neue Varianten

first_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest EVANSTON, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 26, 2021– Aus einer neuen In vitro -Studie, die von der Utah State University und der Northwestern University gemeinsam durchgeführt wurde, geht hervor, dass Wirkstoffe von Xlear (Grapefruitkernextrakt und Xylitol) maßgeblich zur Eliminierung von SARS-CoV-2, dem für COVID-19 verantwortlichen Virus, beitragen. Der Bildgebungsteil der Forschungsstudie wurde in der BioCryo-Anlage am NUANCE Center der Northwestern University durchgeführt. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte.

The GSE kills the virus, while the xylitol prevents the virus from attaching to the cell walls.

In der Studie heißt es: „Nach einer Kontaktzeit von 25 Minuten reduzierte das Nasenspray das Virus von 4,2 auf 1,7 log10 CCID50 pro 0,1 mL – eine statistisch signifikante Reduzierung (P<0.001) um 2,5 log10 CCID50.“ Die Studie von Northwestern/Utah State ist die neueste von einer Reihe von Studien, die zu dem Schluss kommen, dass Xlear gegen SARS-CoV-2 wirkt. Die Studie ist jedoch hinsichtlich zweier entscheidender Aspekte bahnbrechend: „Zunächst schließen wir, dass Xlear nicht nur gegen SARS-CoV-2 wirkt, sondern wahrscheinlich auch effektiv bei der Verhinderung der Verbreitung zukünftiger H1N1-Viren sowie anderer Virusepidemien ist. Angesichts der leichter übertragbaren Varianten, die wir jetzt haben, ist das jetzt sehr wichtig“, sagte Professor Mark Cannon von der Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. „Zweitens konnten wir mittels der Elektronenmikroskopie visuelle Beweise dafür finden, dass Xylitol und Grapefruitkernextrakt gegen das Virus wirken. Der Grapefruitkernextrakt tötet das Virus ab, während das Xylitol verhindert, dass es an den Zellwänden andockt. Das Bild (angehängt) zeigt SARS-CoV-2-Viren außerhalb der Zelle und nie an sie angedockt, womit eine Infektion verhindert werden kann“, sagte Dr. Cannon weiter. Die Studie postuliert, dass Xylitol als Täuschungsmanöver für SARS-CoV-2 fungiert und das Andocken des Virus an das Kernprotein an der Zellwand verhindert. Die Gemeinschaftsstudie kommt zu dem Schluss: „Da es keine Risikofaktoren bei der Anwendung der Kombinationstherapie mit Xylitol/Grapefruitkernextrakt gibt, das [Xlear]-Nasenspray rezeptfrei im Handel erhältlich ist und [Xlear] zudem das bequeme Tragen von Masken über längere Zeit ermöglicht, sollte die Anwendung dieser präventiven antiviralen Therapie gefördert werden.“ Vollständige Studie: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.12.02.408575v3.full Weitere Informationen zu Xlear (einschließlich Bezugsquellen): https://xlear.com/ Die Ausgangssprache, in der der Originaltext veröffentlicht wird, ist die offizielle und autorisierte Version.

Cairn Oil secures licence extension for Rajasthan oil block in India

first_imgThe block is operated by Cairn Oil & Gas with 70% stake while ONGC holds the remaining 30% interest Cairn to explore and produce oil and gas from Rajasthan’s Barmer field. (Credit: 272447 from Pixabay) Vedanta Resources subsidiary Cairn Oil and Gas has reportedly received an additional three-month licence extension for the Rajasthan oil block in India.Spread over 3,111km² in the Barmer district, the Rajasthan block is located in block RJ-ON-90/1.Cairn Oil & Gas operates the block with 70% stake while state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp (ONGC) holds 30% interest.Licence extension was due for renewal in May 2020The licence extension to the initial 25-year contract period allows Cairn Oil and Gas to explore and produce oil and gas from Rajasthan’s Barmer field. The extension was due for renewal in May.The extension is subject to clearance of a dispute of over $520m recovery. As a result of the dispute, the government has given five extensions, with the latest until 31 January 2021, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.In its second-quarter 2020 earnings statement, Vedanta said it believes that the firm “is eligible for an automatic extension of production sharing contract (PSC) for Rajasthan block on the same terms with effect from May 15, 2020.”In October 2018, the Indian government agreed to extend the contract for Barmer fields by ten years following the expiry of the initial contract period.This extension, however, was subject to Vedanta Group agreeing to increase the government’s share of the profit in the block by 10%, the news agency reported.Cairn challenged the government’s demand for the additional payout in a court.However, the government wants the dues to be cleared by the company before the extension of the licence.Last year, Cairn Oil & Gas secured a 10-year extension of the PSC for the Ravva block in Andhra Pradesh, a state in India.last_img read more

Escort Claims Ex-SCPD Chief Burke Paid Her For Sex At Oak Beach Drug Party

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Christopher Twarowski and Timothy BolgerA 30-year-old escort claimed Thursday that disgraced ex-Suffolk County Police Chief James Burke paid her for sex during a cocaine-fueled house party in Oak Beach five years ago.The brunette woman held a news conference to discuss the allegations along with Miller Place-based attorney John Ray, who represents the family of Shannan Gilbert, whose disappearance from the seaside community in May 2010 led to the discovery of the Long Island Serial Killer’s nearby dumping grounds and 10 sets of human remains. Ray stated that the new information from his client implicates Burke not only in Gilbert’s demise, but also in all those victims’.“It is the first time that a direct connection between Burke, prostitution and Oak Beach has been made,” said Ray, who represents Gilbert’s family in a lawsuit against Dr. Peter Hackett, a former Oak Beach resident and ex-police surgeon that the family has accused of causing Gilbert’s death. “This is a significant connection.”“It certainly puts [Burke] right at the center of the pool of suspects for the death of Shannan Gilbert and the other [women],” he continued.Burke was sentenced last month to 46 months in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to beating Christopher Loeb, a handcuffed suspect that stole his gym bag containing his gun, sex toys and porn from the ex-chief’s SUV and ordering subordinates to cover up the station house assault. Burke was documented to have had patronized sex workers, the Press has reported. After the ex-chief was indicted, federal prosecutor James Miskiewicz said in December that Burke’s porn collection was his “motivation for beating the hell out of Loeb.”Burke’s lawyer, Joseph Conway, issued a statement Thursday deeming Ray’s claims “more as tabloid journalism than credible news. Today’s alleged witness and her attorney know full well that any credible witness and any credible information should be provided to the proper Law Enforcement officials and not done via a press conference. All of the allegations raised today are false and slanderous.“Any claims or allegations that James Burke had any involvement in the Gilgo Beach murders is completely outrageous,” Conway’s statement continued. “Mr. Burke was not only the highest ranking Suffolk County Police Officer but also one of the most decorated officers in the history of the department. While he has admitted to his crime involving violation of civil rights and governmental obstruction, there is absolutely not one shred of evidence linking him to the Gilgo beach case. To think otherwise is preposterous.”The female sex worker, who identified herself only as Leanne, said that she first met Burke during an Oak Beach house party in June 2011, where she saw cocaine being passed around and “observed [Burke] pull a woman by her hair to the ground,” she said in a sworn statement. Two months later, she met Burke at another party at the same house.“We attempted to have sex together in the bathroom there, but Jimmy Burke was unable to consummate the sex act,” she said in the statement. “This made him extremely angry. He insisted upon oral sex, which was given. He then called me a whore.”During the news conference, she told reporters that she didn’t know Burke’s identity at the parties other than that he was a high-ranking Suffolk County police official, and she went along with him because she’s a forensic science major who hoped he could help advance her career.When Burke couldn’t perform yet again, she said, he became extremely aggressive.“It was so aggressive that my eyes teared, not from crying,” she said, but from gag reflexes, describing the experience as dehumanizing. She said Burke then threw $300 at her. Leanne said it was the first time she was paid for sex.She believes that she saw Joseph Brewer, the last client to hire Gilbert, at one of the parties, too. Brewer has since sold his Oak Beach home and moved away.Leanne learned Burke’s true identity, she told reporters, from a friend after the second encounter, and again recognized him on TV after his arrest for beating Loeb. She said she later contacted police with a tip about an Oak Beach resident that she said could be a person of interest in the Long Island Serial Killer case, and told reporters that police had informed that man about her tip. That’s when she contacted Josh Zeman and Rachel Mills, filmmakers of The Killing Season, a docu-series about the LISK case that recently aired on A&E. The duo put her in touch with Ray.Gilbert’s body was found in an Oak Beach marsh in December of 2011, several months after Leanne and Burke’s alleged encounter. County medical examiners ruled Gilbert’s cause of death inconclusive, and police said they suspect that she drowned, but her case remains an open investigation, a police spokesman said Thursday. The family had a second autopsy performed, which suggested that Gilbert may have been strangled.Police were searching for Gilbert when they found the first of 10 sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway in the LISK case six years ago this week, in December 2010. Among those discovered were Megan Waterman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, Amber Lynn Costello, Melissa Barthelemy—who had all advertised themselves as escorts on Craigslist and been found wrapped in burlap—the head, hands and forearm of Jessica Taylor, whose mutilated body was found in Manorville in 2003; an unidentified woman dubbed “Fire Island Jane Doe,” whose legs washed up on Blue Point Beach in 1996 and whose skull was discovered on Ocean Parkway; another unidentified woman dubbed Jane Doe No. 6, whose head, hands and right foot were matched with another torso in Manorville; a young Asian male; and the remains of another unidentified woman nicknamed Jane Doe No. 3 until recently, who was matched through DNA to a young infant, known as “Baby Doe,” also disposed of there.Investigators have said that the victims may have been killed by two or more assailants.Asked this month if the police any closer to naming a suspect, they declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.Burke, a 30-year police department veteran, was just 14 years old when he was a witness in the murder case of John Pius, Jr., a 13-year-old from Smithtown whom classmates suffocated with rocks in 1979 for stealing a dirt bike. Following a short stint in the New York City Police Department and his time as a patrolman and undercover narcotics officer in the Suffolk County Police Department, he spent a decade as chief investigator under Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota, the former chief prosecutor in the Pius case.Spota’s office is currently under federal investigation for corruption.Burke was the subject of a 1995 Internal Affairs investigation that concluded allegations he “engaged in a personal, sexual relationship” with “a convicted felon known to be actively engaged in criminal conduct including the possession and sale of illegal drugs, prostitution and larceny,” “engaged in sexual acts in police vehicles while on duty and in uniform,” and “failed to safeguard his service weapon and other departmental property” were “substantiated,” according to its report.Burke received promotions rather than discipline, however, ascending through SCPD’s ranks until he reached its top uniformed position despite his improprieties—a rise facilitated by Spota and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, who appointed Burke police chief in 2012.Burke has been criticized for stymieing FBI efforts to assist in the Long Island Serial Killer case—and also pulling Suffolk County detectives off the FBI’s Long Island Gang Task Force in 2012.Leanne and Ray’s press conference Thursday came just days after another update in the Long Island Serial Killer case: that authorities had linked the torso of an unidentified woman, discovered 19 years ago in Hempstead Lake State Park and dubbed “Peaches” due to a peach tattoo with a bite taken out of it, through DNA, with the skeletal remains of Jane Doe No. 3, thus also identifying Peaches as Baby Doe’s mother.Ray said that Leanne’s affidavit on Burke’s alleged actions on Oak Beach would enable the attorney eventually to examine Suffolk’s disgraced police chief “under oath.”When asked why she decided to go public with her allegations now, Leanne told reporters:“Because that could be my grave—that could have been my grave. This is bigger than me. Yeah, so what, I’m on the news… But if in some way I’m able to identify a child that doesn’t even have a name yet, or give Megan Waterman’s mom some closure, I don’t care about my name.”Featured Photo: Leanne, an escort (L), tells reporters that ex-Suffolk Police Chief James Burke hired her in 2011 during a drug-fueled Oak Beach house party, with John Ray (R), a Miller Place-based attorney, during a news conference to discuss the allegations on Dec. 15, 2016.

Goodyear Indonesia suspends production to comply with PSBB policy

first_imgThe company went on to say that the decision was taken to maintain the health and safety of its employees. The measure is also meant to help the company address the market changes during the unfavorable global conditions.Indonesia’s factory activity contracted to a record level in the first half of the year as a result of weak demand and disruption to the supply chain against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic. Bank Indonesia’s Prompt Manufacturing Index (PMI-BI) was recorded at 45.64 percent; an index reading above 50 indicates expansion while below 50 is a contraction.Despite the production suspension, Goodyear head of marketing and corporate communication Wicaksono Soebroto said on Thursday that the company’s activities were still running as usual with some limitations.“Other supporting roles are still working from home,” he told The Jakarta Post via text message. “However, for warehousing and shipping, employees still have to come to the office within a limited schedule while applying preventive measures.”Wicaksono added that all of the company’s employees continued to be paid despite the temporary production shut down.As of 1.26 p.m., Goodyear’s share price was unchanged at Rp 1,510 (9.7 US cents) apiece.Topics : Publicly listed tire manufacturer PT Goodyear Indonesia has temporarily shut down its production activity to comply with the large-scale social restriction (PSBB) measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.The publicly listed firm halted its production on April 20 until May 3 in a bid to comply with the recent PSBB policy applied in the Bogor city area in West Java where the company is located. The factory’s temporary shutdown is longer than Bogor’s PSBB policy, which is due to expire on April 29.“Until today, we are still assessing the impact of the COVID-19 situation and we hope that the temporary production halt will not affect the company’s continuity,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday posted on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) website.last_img read more

There is a simple explanation for all of the griping about the NFL preseason schedule

first_imgIn August — right now, in fact — many of these same people will gripe that the NFL preseason is too long, too meaningless, too expensive for ticket buyers. Football exhibitions start in earnest Thursday night, and it’s not just the launch of four weeks of football games that mostly will decide who comprises the back end of team rosters. It’s the start of gripe-about-NFL-preseason season.  The dichotomy here is simple to explain.2019 NFL PREDICTIONS:Final division standings and playoff projectionsIn the United States, winter is (mostly) cold. In Florida and Arizona, it is (mostly) not. Thus spring training has an allure to it that does not exist for exhibition football. The games in the Grapefruit and Cactus League don’t count, and they’re often contested by players whose opportunity to be a part of the actual season is minimal, but they’re happening when it’s 75 degrees and sunny. Sportswriters, like nearly all people, appreciate pretty weather.During the August weeks when NFL training camps are conducted, warm weather is not in short supply. It’s usually hot. If you’re covering training camp, you’re probably sweating. There’s nothing romantic about a perspiring sportswriter.Could it really be that simple, that simplistic? Absolutely.And there is a danger to this, as Paul Zeise of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette illustrates. The media’s stance on NFL exhibitions makes it easier for the league to sell the notion of an 18-game season, which would not be beneficial to the players, the game or the spectators. Unscientific polls consistently demonstrate fans prefer a 16-game schedule to the various proposals to extend to 18 games.Those who criticize the NFL preseason will come up with all sorts of reasons, starting with the cost of tickets to attend exhibition games. Teams make those part of their season-ticket packages and charge the same for August football as October football. It seems unreasonable, but mostly it’s just an accounting trick. If there were no exhibitions, the prices of regular-season games simply would be increased to cover that lost revenue.Ever hear anybody complain about the cost of preseason baseball? Do you even know what an exhibition game costs? Not unless you’ve been there recently, because there aren’t any sportswriters or talk hosts campaigning against spring training.Well, it’s rather pricey. In 2018, the average MLB exhibition ticket prices ranged from $22 for the Milwaukee Brewers to $63 for the Chicago Cubs. Some places charged as much as $50 for a spot on a grassy hill in the outfield.DIVISION BREAKDOWNS:AFC East | AFC West | AFC North | AFC SouthNFC East | NFC West | NFC North | NFC SouthOne reason for the complaints about NFL exhibitions is many preseason games are televised nationally, which conveys a sense of importance that is unwarranted — and that sports commentators feel compelled to renounce. But the networks broadcast these games for a simple reason: people watch, at least more than they do the re-runs that otherwise might fill those primetime slots.What will be decided for the Pittsburgh Steelers in their exhibition games? More than anything, it’ll be about whether kicker Chris Boswell essentially can win back his job after a Pro Bowl 2017 season dissolved into a disastrous 2018. But is that any less compelling than who became the Pirates No. 5 starter when they headed North last March?I covered the NCAA Tournament first-round site in St. Petersburg, Fla., in 1994. The media hotel was a Hilton that happened to be directly across the street from Al Lang Field. You’d have thought there was a Christmas tree with presents underneath the way a lot of folks on the media shuttle reacted when they noticed this.The NCAA basketball games at Tropicana Field were played on Friday and Sunday. This was Thursday, so a bunch of journalists started making plans to write quick and race over to the diamond to watch an exhibition game scheduled for that afternoon. If you wish to bring a certain segment of Americans to tears, an even more reliable device than sitting them down for a showing of “Marley & Me” is simply to recite the phrase, “Pitchers and catchers report.”This is more effective in particular months of the year, and true even among the generally dispassionate folks who populate the sporting media. They do not cheer in the press box, but they yearn for the opportunity to visit spring training to write stories about pitching rotations or do radio shows talking to the bullpen catcher. They did this even though there were real basketball games being played at other sites in the tournament they were covering, available to be viewed on TV. Yep, they preferred to watch preseason baseball over March Madness drama, including Green Bay upsetting Cal and Jason Kidd and Rashard Griffith leading Wisconsin to a victory over Dontonio Wingfield and Cincinnati.It was sunny and pleasant at the ballpark. It was a chance to be outdoors when they’d all spent the winter indoors, or wishing they were inside while shoveling snow or walking to and from wind-swept parking lots. That’s why spring training is discussed with reverence and the NFL preseason is widely rejected.Pitchers and catchers report in six months. If you need a Kleenex, you’re on your own.last_img read more
