Can Valsartan Cause Cancer? — Hometown Station | KHTS FM 98.1 & AM 1220 — Santa Clarita Radio – Santa Clarita News Can Valsartan Cause Cancer? — Hometown Station | KHTS FM 98.1 & AM 1220 — Santa Clarita Radio

Valsartan is a very popular prescribed drug for treating heart failure and high blood pressure. Although the medicine has been deemed safe for consumption, some of its batches made in China were found to be contaminated with chemicals that cause liver damage or cancer. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found this out and announced a recall of hundreds of medicines containing Valsartan and advised people who were using the medicine to immediately stop. Some people even were advised to seek legal help to claim full money back through a Valsartan lawsuit. If you have been prescribed Valstarn before 2018, then you are probably at risk of liver damage and cancer. The authorities were only able to find out that the medicine was contaminated with carcinogens in 2018. This triggered a call back of most of the medicine available in pharmacies and other medical stores. But people who have been regularly using the medicine are still at risk of liver damage and cancer, especially if they acquired the medicine from a batch that was before from 2018. The first chemical impurity was found in some batches of Valsartan containing NDMA. This is a known carcinogen. The FDA ran further tests ...

Sapphire Award winners refine technology focus in 2019 (MAGAZINE)

There’s no doubt that innovation abounds in the LED and SSL industry. But each year places new expectations on technology specialists to ‘level up’ in order to win a Sapphire Award. Carrie Meadows reports on the Illumineer of the Year and winning products. Amid the clinking of champagne flutes poured by an aerialist and the clatter of serving dishes, the buzz of anticipation arose at the fifth annual Sapphire Awards Gala, hosted by LEDs Magazine on Feb. 28, 2019 during the week of Strategies in Light. Chief editor Maury Wright and publisher June Griffin greeted the gathering full of industry executives, lighting leadership, and expert advisors from the Strategies in Light conference team, as well as new colleagues from across the solid-state lighting (SSL) supply chain. As in years past, the evening’s events included what one might call “an entertainment reel,” this year offering a retrospective of the past five years’ Sapphire Awards in addition to pictorial inspirations behind the winning innovations over the life of the awards program. A passion for technology and creative application of highly complex electronics, components, and materials has given birth to a number of outs...

China car startup dodges Trump tariffs with AI and 3D printing - Nikkei Asian Review Arrow Artboard Artboard Title Chevron Title Chevron Eye Icon Icon Facebook Icon Linkedin Icon Mail Contact Path Layer Icon Mail Menu Burger Positive Arrow Icon Print Icon Search Site Title Title

This year, Yu’s auto startup in southwestern China is set to deliver its first vehicle to a U.S. buyer, but he has not even bothered to check how much President Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods might affect him. After all, he has a workaround — even if it sounds like the stuff of science fiction. Pix Moving, Yu’s company, is using artificial intelligence to design cars and convert the blueprints into instructions for 3D printers. His vision is to upload the data to the cloud and let his team in the U.S. print all the components there. “We don’t export cars to the U.S.,” the soft-spoken 42-year-old said. “We export the technique that is needed to produce the cars.” Though Pix is a tiny venture and its vehicles cannot yet be seen on public roads, it has caught the attention of at least two major automakers, Volvo and Honda Motor. And Yu is convinced the man regarded as the father of the auto industry would have seen the wisdom of his high-tech ways. “If Henry Ford were still alive,” he said, “I believe he would have also built cars using AI.” Yu’s startup is microcosm of much bigger trends spreadin...

Here in the U.S., many people still only know Korean beauty as the newest section at

Here in the U.S., many people still only know Korean beauty as the newest section at Ulta or Nordstrom, packed with super cute products. But across the world in Korea, beauty cannot be relegated just to the store counter—from traditional therapies to advanced procedures and of course, new product innovations coming to market at breakneck speed, beauty isn’t just a part of life for the 25 million or so women (and many men) on the Asian peninsula—it’s a way of life.  “In the U.S., a beauty routine may consist of a morning and evening routine, with the occasional visit to the dermatologist when there’s a major skin issue, but in Korea, on top of a multistep routine for both morning and night, women visit local ‘skin maintenance shops’ biweekly or weekly to fine-tune their skin,” says Korean beauty expert Charlotte Cho, cofounder of SokoGlam and The Klog. “They consider full-body and facial massages a part of their normal routine, and visit dermatologists regularly to access their skin and for advanced procedures.” The Korean woman’s obsession with beauty also can’t be written off as some kind of extreme collective vanity—the hypercompetitive socity (job applicants are required to s...

Product Applications for Philippines Centrifugal Chillers

The Philippines is a tourist hotspot both figuratively and literally. Foreigners from all over the world fly from all across the globe to dip their toes in the warm sands of our beaches and bathe under the tropic sun. But for most of us locals who are too accustomed to the heat, we find ourselves scuttling within the cool confines of larger buildings—mainly hotels, condos, malls, and for those old enough to enter, casinos, to name few. Entering buildings just to be swathed by the cool air is so embedded in Philippine culture that we have a word for it: palamig. If not for top of the line technologies in facility-wide cooling, then this casual, cultural practice and the word that comes with it would not even exist. It goes without saying, but residential air conditioning systems are poles apart from their bigger cousins found in commercial buildings and industrial facilities. On one hand, personalization and the ability to cool any room of your choice is perfect for small families and groups found in smaller locations. However, these larger buildings and the numerous individuals who visit these places on a daily basis demand so much more. A constantly cooled place for all around,...

Metals likely promoted protometabolism in early ocean alkaline hydrothermal systems

One of the most plausible scenarios of the origin of life assumes the preceding prebiotic autotrophic metabolism in sulfide-rich hydrothermal vent environments. However, geochemical mechanisms to harness the reductive power provided by hydrothermal systems remain to be elucidated. Here, we show that, under a geoelectrochemical condition realizable in the early ocean hydrothermal systems, several metal sulfides (FeS, Ag2S, CuS, and PbS) undergo hour- to day-scale conversion to the corresponding metals at ≤−0.7 V (versus the standard hydrogen electrode). The electrochemically produced FeS-Fe0 assemblage promoted various reactions including certain steps in the reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle with efficiencies far superior to those due to pure FeS. The threshold potential is readily generated in the H2-rich alkaline hydrothermal systems that were probably ubiquitous on the Hadean seafloor. Thus, widespread metal production and metal-sustained primordial metabolism were likely to occur as a natural consequence of the active hydrothermal processes on the Hadean Earth. A recent in situ electrochemical survey of the Okinawa Trough hydrothermal fields observed spontaneous generation ...

From lightweight, packable coats to fully protective all-in-ones, here are our top wet-weather picks

From lightweight, packable coats to fully protective all-in-ones, here are our top wet-weather picks When you’re buying your kid a waterproof jacket, you need to think about how much of an outdoorsy family you are or plan to be. If you like camping or getting out for walks whatever the weather, it’s worth investing in a decent waterproof jacket that will withstand regular use from spring to autumn.  This is also important if they walk or cycle to school, and if they do you should also look out for waterproof jackets with reflective strips to keep them safe on and around busy roads. If you only need something for occasional use, getting something highly technical is less important, though you might want to look for a waterproof jacket that is not too bulky so it can be easily stuffed into a backpack or under a buggy. Younger kids tend to like bright designs. Breathability is less important for this age group too, though keeping them warm in wet weather will be something you want to think about. All of the jackets on this list are effective at repelling water, though some of the fabrics felt more hard-wearing than others in our testing. The age ranges provided here are those indic...

Enquête : les Français consacrent 3 heures par jour à la masturbation sur leur lieu de travail

Le débat d’idées de très haut niveau qui accompagne la campagne présidentielle ou encore la récente nomination de DSK à la tête de la banque du sperme de Choisy-le-Roi ne doit pas occulter une triste réalité économique : selon une étude Coe-Rexecode (prononcer « Cauet-Rexecode »), les Français n’en foutent pas une rame, contrairement aux Allemands qui eux, savent s’adapter à un monde qui change dans la joie et la bonne humeur. En effet, le salarié français à temps plein a travaillé 1.679 heures en moyenne en 2010, soit 224 heures de moins qu’un Allemand. Encore une chose que les Allemands font mieux que nous. Ils savent mieux équilibrer un budget, mieux exporter leurs voitures, mieux libérer les forces productives de la Nazion et mieux avaler 10 Wurst au curry en un quart d’heure, performance que même Nafissatou Diallo n’a jamais pu égaler. Situation d’autant plus scandaleuse lorsqu’on ramène ce chiffre à une journée de travail type par ce simple calcul, qui relève de la méthodologie la plus transparente : 1.679 / 365 = 4,6. Le salarié français n’a donc travaillé que 4,6 heures par jour en moyenne en 2010, ce qui nous donne un total sur 7 jours – oui, parce que nous somme...

Memphis warehouse project: What to know about Amazon links, jobs, more

A 4 million-square-foot warehouse is planned for the Raleigh neighborhood in northern Memphis. Here’s what you need to know about it. This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. On Wednesday, the Shelby County Board of Adjustment will discuss whether to allow a five-story warehouse to be built on 99 acres of vacant land in the Raleigh neighborhood just north of the Nike distribution facility. If it is built, the warehouse could be a boon for job creation for Raleigh and its neighbor Frayser. While officials with Amazon have not confirmed that the warehouse would be occupied by the retail giant, there are similarities between this project and past Amazon projects that suggest the company could be expanding its Memphis footprint. Seefried Industrial Properties is planning a new warehouse north of the Nike facility in North Memphis. (Photo: Memphis and Shelby County Board of Adjustment application) At five stories, the building would be taller than currently allowed in that spot just west of New Allen Road and south of Hawkins Mill Road in Raleigh, near Frayser’s border. Not only do ...
