Such was the star power that Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett carried throughout their careers and still possess, all of them now five years removed from their final games as NBA greats. Each was an NBA champion, an MVP, an Olympic gold medalist, annual locks for All-Star and All-Defensive teams. “I like to think that all three of us pushed each other to be the best that we could be,” Garnett said last year, shortly after learning that he was part of the same class with Bryant and Duncan.

We all know that eating bacon every day could lead to several health issues later on in life, not to mention some unfavorable symptoms in the immediate term like feeling sluggish. However, new research from England suggests cured pork meats may pose an additional threat.Researchers found that consuming bacon, pigs' liver, and other cured pork meats (think prosciutto, salami, and chorizo) were significantly associated with HEV (hepatitis E virus) infection, a liver disease often contracted through drinking water that's been contaminated with fecal matter.What did the study examine?The study, which was published in Emerging Infectious Diseases, examined the risk factors for HEV infections in the blood donor population in England via a case-control study from April 2018 to March 2019. Participants included 117 HEV RNA-positive blood donors as well as 564 HEV RNA-negative donors, all of which were asked to document their travel history, animal and environmental exposures, alcohol intake, medication, and other underlying conditions.Since the incubation period for HEV can be two to nine weeks, all subjects were asked to write down what they ate within the nine-week period preceding the blood donation. Of the 19 foods included, 14 of them were greatly associated with HEV, a majority of which were animal-based items, most notably bacon, cured pork meats, and pigs' liver. Interestingly, most of the participants were asymptomatic, but those who were symptomatic reported fatigue, joint pain, and headaches.However, as Dr. Mike Bohl, MD, MPH, CPH, MWC, ELS, director of medical content at Ro, and member of our medical review board points out, this study discovered an association, not a direct cause. In other words, while there's strong evidence to believe cured pork products can be riddled with HEV (especially in countries outside the U.S.), it doesn't necessarily mean that's true in all cases. Still, it's a good reminder to limit your intake of nitrate-rich meats that you might find on a charcuterie board or next to your stack of pancakes at breakfast."While it didn't establish causation, this relationship makes sense given that pigs are the main reservoir for hepatitis E virus," says Bohl. "If you're a connoisseur of swine-based foods and are concerned about this risk, two easy steps you can take are to find out whatever you can about where your food was sourced and make sure to properly cook everything you eat."Based on this study, it's unclear if the curing process of these types of meat is effective enough on its own to kill traces of HEV.For helpful, easy ways you can cut back on meat, be sure to check out Delicious Foods You Can Eat on a Plant-Based Diet.
A private gathering at a hotel in Austin, Texas, last week was billed as a thank you for Republican donors for a state registration drive, but it gave a clutch of 2024 presidential candidates a chance to test drive their pitch - if former President Donald Trump does not run. Trump was not invited, nor was he the central focus of the event. Speakers did not dwell on his false claims that the election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden was stolen from him, attendees and people briefed on the event told Reuters.

Automating construction processes and increasing collaboration and team mobility are essential reasons for selecting the Projectmates software platform. Richardson, Texas, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Projectmates, the enterprise construction project management software, today announced that the city of Beaumont, the largest city in the Southeast region of Texas, has implemented the Projectmates platform to manage its capital construction program. SOC2 Type II certified and trusted by government organizations for more than 20 years, Projectmates was built for agility, scalability and affordability. Projectmates provides a collaborative platform for managing the City’s current and future construction projects. By moving away from a system of folders on shared drives and automating processes with Projectmates, Beaumont will gain real-time visibility across their entire construction program. “Construction projects fail when you don’t know the true impact of changes or delays. So having real-time information at hand is essential,” said Varsha Bhave, founder and CTO of Projectmates and its parent company Systemates, Inc. “We help our clients gain clarity on all aspects of their construction projects, with the security, transparency and accountability that’s vital to local government.” To meet government’s strict security standards, Projectmates runs on the Microsoft Azure platform, and includes role-based security measures to ensure the City has complete control over how its data is accessed and shared. And since Projectmates is cloud-based, it provides Beaumont’s project stakeholders with access to construction program information from any device and at any time. And being a cloud-based solution, Projectmates saves the City money on both hardware and labor and maintenance costs for datacenter administration. The Projectmates team worked with the City’s project stakeholders to implement the new software; despite the holiday season, the COVID-19 pandemic, and a historic winter storm, implementation was completed in less than four months instead of the typical industry implementation timeline of seven to twelve months.

With features such as construction workflow, capital planning and cost tracking, Projectmates solves many of the construction industry’s pressing problems.

For elephant seals - one of the most distinctive of the 33 species that comprise the world's seal family - it is hard work to stay fat. Scientists have conducted the most thorough study to date of the unique feeding behavior of northern elephant seals, focusing on the females of the species during arduous two-month post-breeding migrations in the northeastern Pacific Ocean. The seals were found to spend upwards of 20 hours every day - and sometimes a full 24 hours - in continuous deep-diving to feed on multitudes of small fish, rather than the larger prey favored by other deep-diving marine mammals, to gain the body fat essential for successful reproduction and insulation in the frigid depths.
