Two biomarkers based on DNA methylation (DNAm) were strongly associated with a person’s risk for heart attack and stroke, according to new research led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The two biomarkers, known as GrimAgeAccel and DNAmRS, were also significantly associated with overall risk of premature death.The study, led by CuiCui Wang, a research fellow in the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, was published Dec. 4, 2020 in EBioMedicine. It identified five different DNAm-based biomarkers associated with aging and then analyzed these biomarkers in blood samples collected through two large cohort studies.The researchers focused on determining how closely associated each biomarker was with premature death, heart attack, stroke, and cancer. The findings showed that none of the biomarkers was associated with cancer, but that several of them were strongly associated with premature death, heart attack, and stroke.From a public health perspective, the team noted, GrimAgeAccel was the valuable biomarker for assessing risk of death, heart attack, and stroke and could serve as a useful tool for identifying elderly people at elevated risk for such events.

The Batesville Lady Bulldogs improved 7-0 in EIAC conference play on Wednesday night as they defeated the Franklin County Lady Wildcats 4-0. Batesville took a 1-0 lead into halftime after Georgia Gratz found Lauren Gutzwiller unmarked on the left wing and Gutzwiller connected with a rocket shot past the keepers gloves for the score.In the second half, Batesville did a better job of passing and moving the ball which creates better scoring opportunities. Carlie Werner scored a hat trick in the second half off assists from Denise Davalos and Hailey Mohr (2).The defense recorded their 7th shutout of the season behind solid play from Lily Meyer, Abbey Prickel, Liz Heidlage, and Ella Gutzwiller. Olive Cerniglia recorded two saves in goal to help preserve the shutout.Batesville is back in action on Thursday as they host the Greenwood Lady Woodmen.

Press Association “Arsenal can confirm that 11 players will be leaving the club when their contracts officially expire on June 30,” a statement on arsenal.com read. “Nicklas Bendtner and Park Ju-young come to the end of their contracts, while Kim Kallstrom and Emiliano Viviano’s loan spells are set to conclude. “As already communicated, Bacary Sagna, Lukasz Fabianski and Zak Ansah have completed permanent moves to Manchester City, Swansea City and Charlton Athletic respectively. “Meanwhile, academy players Chuks Aneke, Daniel Boateng, Zach Fagan and Leander Siemann also depart having reached the end of their current agreements. “Everyone at Arsenal would like to take this opportunity to thank all of these players for their contribution to the club, and to wish them well for the future.” South Korea striker Park made just seven appearances following his 2011 arrival from Monaco. Kallstrom signed in January on loan from Spartak Moscow, but injury limited his impact as he made one start and three substitute appearances for the 2014 FA Cup winners. Palermo goalkeeper Viviano did not feature for the Gunners’ first team during his spell at the club. The end of Nicklas Bendtner’s Arsenal career has been confirmed after the Gunners announced the departures of 11 out of contract players. Denmark striker Bendtner made the last of his 171 Gunners appearances in February, after season-long loan spells at Sunderland and Juventus in recent years. The 26-year-old scored 47 goals since his 2004 arrival as a 16-year-old, but his early potential was never fully realised and his final days at Arsenal were marred by off-field indiscretions.
UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Share Submit UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Related Articles ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 Share UK regulatory and licensing stakeholders have sent a joint-letter to online gambling operators demanding that adverts ‘appealing to minors’ be ‘immediately removed’ from websites and active marketing inventory (media, affiliates and third parties).The joint-letter was published by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), and supported by UK advertising bodies the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) and The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).The demand relating to minors protections against gambling exposure has been further supported by industry trade group The Remote Gambling Association (RGA).On Sunday 8 October, The Sunday Times published an investigative report titled ‘Peter Pan hooks children on web gambling’, in which the newspaper claimed that ‘lax industry regulation’ had allowed betting operators to use cartoon characters to promote a number of casino games.The newspaper detailed that the ‘freely accessible’ images breached UK advertising codes set by CAP with regards to child (under-18) protections relating to gambling services.“Recent articles in the UK national press have highlighted a number of freely accessible ads on gambling operator websites, which feature images that are likely to appeal particularly to under 18s. This is unacceptable.”“Gambling operators are required by the UK Advertising Codes and the conditions of their Gambling Commission licence to advertise responsibly with particular regard to the protection of under 18s and others who are vulnerable to being harmed or exploited by gambling advertising.”UK media reports that the letter has been sent to 450 online gambling firms, further warning that those who failed to adhere to current ASA standards would likely face sanctions.The subject matter of child protections was reviewed by industry legal expert David Clifton (Clifton Davies) for SBC this month, detailing that sector stakeholders be ‘mindful of protecting children’.
