San Diego Triathlon Challenge raises US$1.4 million for CAF

first_img Related The Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge (SDTC) weekend generated US$1.4 million, including funds raised by the 24 Hour Fitness Tour de Cove stationary cycling marathon, and the Kaiser Permanente Thrive-5K Fitness Walk. The funds raised this past weekend will allow the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) to continue to provide equipment, training and support for physically challenged individuals to find success in sports – and in life.A radiating glow seemed to part the clouds at the La Jolla Cove on Sunday morning. More than 7,000 people made their way to the picturesque setting for the 19th annual Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge, bringing together a weekend-long festival of events celebrating what is possible for athletes with physical disabilities.The SDTC event, which includes the 24 Hour Fitness Tour de Cove cycling marathon and Kaiser Permanente Thrive-5 K Fitness Walk, welcomed more than 300 challenged athletes, 700 able-bodied athletes and 5,000 supporters.Thanks to support from sponsors, fundraisers and donors, this year’s SDTC weekend was one to remember. From the youngest toddlers to medal-winning Paralympians, challenged athletes of all ages and abilities were given a unique opportunity to prove to themselves, and the world, that there is nothing they can’t accomplish.Money raised at last year’s SDTC funded a record 1,106 grants for challenged athletes in the US. and around the world. CAF has now funded close to 7,000 individuals over the past 19 years. Now with the success of this year’s SDTC CAF will be able to serve even more challenged athletes in 2012.www.challengedathletes.orglast_img read more

Female submissives have reduced empathy to others’ suffering, study on BDSM finds

first_imgEmail Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Female “subs” show reduced empathic responses to others’ suffering, according to preliminary research on BDSM practitioners.“Our behavioral and neuroimaging findings cast new light on the relationship between BDSM activities and empathy by yielding evidence that BDSM experience might moderate empathic tendencies an empathic neural responses,” the researchers wrote in their study, which was published in the journal Neuropsychologia.Two experiments conducted in the study indicated that women who adopted a submissive role (subs) also tended to be less empathetic. LinkedIncenter_img Share The first experiment of 365 Chinese adults found female subs showed decreased empathic ability compared with a control group of non-practitioners. But there was no difference between female “switches” — meaning women who switch between dominant and submissive roles — and the control group. Likewise, there was no difference in empathic ability between male practitioners and the control group.Both male and female practitioners, however, reported diminished feelings of subjective pain intensity when viewing facial expressions indicating pain.“These findings are consistent with previous findings suggesting that the reduction in empathic responses to others’ suffering was associated with frequent exposure to pain-inflicting situations,” the researchers explained.In the second experiment, the researchers monitored the brain activity of 64 Chinese women using an EEG while the women viewed images of painful and neutral facial expressions. This experiment found a “reliable reduction in empathic brain responses to perceived pain in others in the female submissive group.”The authors of the study cautioned that researchers are still in the beginning stages of understanding how BDSM impacts empathy.“Future research should aim to further clarify whether and how variety in practices and interpersonal relationships during BDSM practices shape individuals’ perceptions of others’ feelings.”The study, “Empathy in female submissive BDSM practitioners“, was authored by Siyang Luo and Xiao Zhang.

Stewardship / Resistance Scan for Jun 05, 2017

first_imgMDR Pseudomonas infections nearly twice as deadly for hospital patientsA review of hospital-onset Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in the United States found that the mortality from multidrug-resistant P aeruginosa (MDR-PSA) is nearly twice that of non-MDR-PSA infections.For the study, which was presented at ASM Microbe 2017, which ended today, researchers used an electronic research dataset that includes microbiology/general lab results, pharmacy orders, and financial data to identify PSA isolates from blood, wound, urine, respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, and other sources collected at US hospitals from January 2013 to September 2015. Isolates were labeled as hospital-onset if they were collected more than 3 days after admission or through 1 day after discharge. The researchers then compared the mortality and hospital length of stay associated with MDR-PSA versus non-MDR-PSA infections.Of 4,522 cases, 3,643 (80.6%) were non-MDR and 879 (19.4%) were MDR-PSA. Isolates recovered from respiratory sources accounted for 42.4% of all MDR cases, followed by urine (33.1%), and wound (18.3%). While the overall mortality for all PSA infections was 12.8%, the researchers found that mortality was 19.8% for patients with MDR-PSA infections, compared with 11.1% for patients with non-MDR PSA infections. In addition, patients with MDR-PSA were in the hospital for 14.3 days longer than patients with non-MDR-PSA.Study co-author Sanjay Merchant, PhD, executive director of the Center for Observational and Real World Evidence at Merck & Co., told Infectious Disease News that the findings highlight the need for effective therapy against MDR PSA infections.”Additionally, hospitals should consider utilizing various infection management strategies, including hand hygiene, environment cleaning and increasing heterogeneity of antibiotic prescribing, to minimize the emergence and spread of MDR-PSA resistance in hospitals,” he said.Jun 3 ASM 2017 abstract (#5262, pg. 566) Jun 4 Infectious Disease News article Study evaluates alternative disinfectants for C difficileA new study by Dutch researchers in Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Control indicates that Clostridium difficile spores of PCR ribotypes 014 and 027 strains are harder to eradicate than non-toxigenic PCR ribotype 010.The researchers were testing four different products commonly used for cleaning and disinfecting in Dutch hospitals for their efficacy against C difficile, the most common source of healthcare-associated diarrhea and a growing threat associated with morbidity, mortality, and extra costs. The four different compounds, potential alternatives to liquid bleach (the main disinfectant used against C difficile), included:Hydrogen peroxide 1.5%Glucoprotamin 1.5%A mixture of ethanol, propane, and N-alkyl amino propyl glycineA mixture of didecyldimonium chloride, benzalkonium chloride, polyaminopropyl, biguanide and dimenthicone as active ingredientsThe products, in wipe and spray form, were tested against ceramic tiles contaminated with an outbreak-related PCR ribotype (027), an endemic PCR ribotype (014), and a non-toxigenic ribotype (010). C difficile 014 is the most prevalent PCR ribotype in the Netherlands. The effectiveness was measured in reduction of colony-forming units (CFUs).Regardless of the disinfection method, the overall CFU reduction was highest for C difficile PCR 010, followed by 014 and 027. In general, the ready-to-use wipes performed better than the sprays for all compounds, with hydrogen peroxide wipes showing the highest bactericidal activity.”Ready-to-use wipes eliminate the possibility of human errors that could make the disinfectant less effective or make the wipes unnecessarily toxic,” the authors write.The authors say the findings indicate “the importance of including a variety of clinically relevant ribotypes when evaluating the effects of disinfectants against C difficile.”Jun 3 Antimicrob Resist Infect Control studylast_img read more
