Genetically modified food controversies
The clock is ticking: in the absence of government support, not being able to work means waste reclaimers don't have money to buy food. One thing that remains unchanged is that we continue to produce massive amounts of waste each day. South Africa generates 59 million tonnes of general waste a year. Yet the country has recycling rates comparable to European countries for some materials. After salvaging the recyclables, the reclaimers haul them great distances, sort and clean them.
SAs response to COVID-19 worsens the plight of waste reclaimers
Metrics details. Introduction: Surgical antibiotic prophylaxis SAP is frequently continued for several days after surgery to prevent surgical site infection SSI. Continuing SAP after the operation may have no advantage compared to immediate discontinuation and unnecessarily expose patients to risks associated with antibiotic use. Objectives: We present an update of the evidence that formed the basis for this recommendation. We excluded studies comparing regimens that also differed with regard to dose and agent used, and studies that did not administer the first dose preoperatively by intravenous infusion. We extracted data from published reports and contacted the authors if important information was missing. We combined studies using random effects meta-analysis.
Dangerous, antibiotic resistant bacteria have been observed with increasing frequency over the past several decades. In this review the factors that have been linked to this phenomenon are addressed. Profiles of bacterial species that are deemed to be particularly concerning at the present time are illustrated. Factors including economic impact, intrinsic and acquired drug resistance, morbidity and mortality rates, and means of infection are taken into account. Synchronously with the waxing of bacterial resistance there has been waning antibiotic development. The approaches that scientists are employing in the pursuit of new antibacterial agents are briefly described.

Antibiotics and Bacterial Resistance in the 21st Century
This book compiles the latest information in the field of antibacterial discovery, especially with regard to the looming threat of multi-drug resistance. The respective chapters highlight the discovery of new antibacterial and anti-infective compounds derived from microbes, plants, and other natural sources. The potential applications of nanotechnology to the fields of antibacterial discovery and drug delivery are also discussed, and one section of the book is dedicated to the use of computational tools and metagenomics in antibiotic drug discovery.
Genetically modified food controversies are disputes over the use of foods and other goods derived from genetically modified crops instead of conventional crops , and other uses of genetic engineering in food production. The disputes involve consumers , farmers , biotechnology companies , governmental regulators, non-governmental organizations, and scientists. The key areas of controversy related to genetically modified food GM food or GMO food are whether such food should be labeled, the role of government regulators, the objectivity of scientific research and publication, the effect of genetically modified crops on health and the environment, the effect on pesticide resistance , the impact of such crops for farmers, and the role of the crops in feeding the world population. In addition, products derived from GMO organisms play a role in the production of ethanol fuels and pharmaceuticals.

Antibiotics are life saving medicines. But these very same medicines can threaten our lives, if used indiscriminately. Already, seven lakh people around the world die due to drug-resistant diseases each year. And if no radical changes are made, these drug-resistant diseases could kill 10 million people a year by It is an online tool aimed at guiding policy-makers and health workers to use antibiotics safely and more effectively.
На затекших ногах Беккер прошел через вращающуюся дверь. Больше никаких мотоциклов, пообещал он. Ярко освещенное помещение аэровокзала сияло стерильной чистотой. Здесь не было ни души, если не считать уборщицы, драившей пол. На противоположной стороне зала служащая закрывала билетную кассу компании Иберия эйр-лайнз. Беккеру это показалось дурным предзнаменованием.
К рабочему кабинету Стратмора, именуемому аквариумом из-за стеклянных стен, вела узкая лестница, поднимавшаяся по задней стене шифровалки. Взбираясь по решетчатым ступенькам, Сьюзан смотрела на массивную дубовую дверь кабинета, украшенную эмблемой АНБ, на которой был изображен могучий орел, терзающий когтями старинную отмычку. За этой дверью находился один из самых великих людей, которых ей довелось знать. Пятидесятишестилетний коммандер Стратмор, заместитель оперативного директора АНБ, был для нее почти как отец. Именно он принимал ее на работу, именно он сделал АНБ для нее родным домом.
