A case has been filed against the owner of the unit with the police launching a probe (thăm dò, điều tra) into the matter. Piles of face masks were also recovered from the premises of the mattress factory.

The used face masks, found lying around the premises, were set on fire (đốt) as per the prescribed norms.

Tin mới đây

một phụ nữ nặn trung bình 4.153 mụn trứng cá trong cả cuộc đời :D

When a zit rears its ugly head, do you let nature take its course or start squeezing? For women, a new study finds most take the proactive approach. The average American woman pops a total of 65 pimples (mụn) annually. That’s 4,153 zits in the average U.S. woman’s adult lifetime!

A survey of 2,000 U.S. women is revealing the not-so-dermatologist-recommended ways respondents are taking the process of revitalizing their skin into their own hands – in some cases, quite literally.

Over eight in 10 American women admit to popping pimples

Skin care SinsUnfortunately, 58 percent add they learned a lasting lesson, saying they have at least one scar from their forays into pimple-popping. Over three-quarters of those who pop say they know it’s bad for their pores, but the urge to pop is just too strong.

các nhà khoa học cho gấu chạy thử trên máy chạy, và kết luận rằng nó cũng... không thích leo dốc :D
-----

Scientists trained nine captive grizzly bears to walk and run on a special treadmill (máy chạy bộ) (usually used for horses) placed in a custom, sealed enclosure of steel and plastic. The research team had individual bears walk for about 6 minutes each at varying speeds and gradients (đường dốc, độ dốc) (i.e. inclines), keeping the animals motivated with a constant stream of apple slices (cho gấu ăn táo để khuyến khích). The sealed enclosure allowed the scientists to then measure how the bears’ oxygen consumption (hấp thụ oxy) differed as they strolled (đi tản bộ) on the exercise machine, giving a good measure of the animals’ metabolic rates (tốc độ trao đổi chất).

The team found that the most energy efficient walking speed for the bears was about 4.2 kilometers per hour (or about 2.7 mph), despite GPS data from bears in the wild showing that grizzlies usually only travel at about 0.6 meters per second—or a little less than a mile and a half per hour, which is about how fast humans walk. The GPS data also showed that wild grizzlies mostly stuck to trails with gentler gradients, probably to conserve energy. The findings were published in the Journal of Experimental Biology.

Researchers also found that bears are pretty bad at maintaining high speeds (rất kém trong việc duy trì tốc độ cao).

Firefighters (lính cứu hỏa) took more than two hours to put out the blaze (dập tắt đám cháy).

To air the operating rooms and protect everyone inside from smoke, firefighters used electric ventilators.

A group of eight doctors and nurses completed the operation in two hours before evacuating (sơ tán, di tản) the site, the emergencies ministry said.

While it didn't make participants lose weight, it did reduce a condition that can lead to heart attacks (cơn đau tim) and type-2 diabetes (tiểu đường)

It was a radical experiment (thí nghiệm cấp tiến) that became the subject of a TV documentary, The Good Sh*t.

Professors Wayne Cutfield and Justin O'Sullivan from the Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland set out to discover whether they could find a solution to the world's obesity epidemic in our faeces (phân).

Niềm vui vắc-xin

The UK's drug regulator, which polices the safety of Covid jabs, has also had reports of inoculated Brits being left screaming, yawning (ngáp) or crying afterwards.

Officials ask people to report any health issues they have had after being vaccinated in case a serious side effect (tác dụng phụ) does crop up. But the 65-page list of alleged reactions is full of oddities.

And some of these are even more common than actual medical problems. Rare brain blood clots that scared German regulators were reported five times, while six people reported 'teething' and 42 claimed crying was a side effect.

People in desperate need of pain relief are willing to let carnivorous reptiles slither all over their bodies — and faces — at a small spa in Cairo.

As soothing (dịu dàng, êm dịu, dễ chịu) music pumps through the sound system, masseurs rub oil on clients’ backs — before introducing a combination of pythons (con trăn) or around 28 different types of non-venomous snakes (rắn) in the adrenaline-fueled 30-minute session.

Masseuse and spa owner Safwat Sedki said snake massages help reduce muscle and joint pain while improving blood circulation (tăng cường lưu thông máu, hoạt huyết) and releasing endorphins.

The doctors, who are employed as medical residents by Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Mich., and specialize in obstetrics (khoa sản) and gynecology (phụ khoa), asked people to guess how much an unidentified organ (bộ phận không xác định) weighed.

The station said it blurred part of the image so that people could not tell what type of organ was shown in the post, which was shared publicly.

The posts appeared to show at least one patient in the background, the television station reported. They were taken down shortly after the station contacted the medical residents on Friday.

Sao không tin thuốc của người Việt

đừng nhét khoai tây vào hậu môn để giảm đau vì trĩ nhé,

các bác sĩ đã cảnh báo với những lời khuyên trên mạng kiểu vậy,

cứ dùng tottri của traphaco ;)
-----

A number of online websites suggest a frozen French fry-sized piece of potato (khoai tây) inserted (nhét vào) internally for 30 seconds is just the ticket (chính xác là những gì cần) for pile sufferers.

Because a raw potato is slightly acidic it apparently can relieve pain (giảm đau) and itching (ngứa) while its frozen state constricts blood vessels (làm co mạch máu) in the sensitive zone (vùng nhạy cảm).

..."The potatoes have astringent (làm se) properties and help relieve the pain and itchy sensation which usually happens with this condition, while the ice cold potato constricts the blood vessels, reduces the swelling and relieves your pain instantly."

Haemorrhoids (bệnh trĩ), or piles as they're commonly known, are swollen or bulging veins in the anus (hậu môn). They're similar to varicose (giãn tĩnh mạch) veins seen on legs but in a much more sensitive part of the body.

There are many causes (nguyên nhân) for haemorrhoids including pregnancy (mang thai) and straining (mệt mỏi, căng thẳng) during bowel movement (đi ỉa).

Long spells of sitting down (ngồi lâu), constipation (táo bón), a low fibre diet (chế độ ăn ít chất xơ) and obesity (béo phì) have also all been linked to causing piles.

cục an toàn thực phẩm châu âu nói rằng: giun-như-dòi an toàn để ăn...

If it’s true that we “eat first with our eyes,” then you may want to keep them shut for this meal.

The European Food Safety Agency, under the jurisdiction of the European Union, has deemed yellow mealworms safe for human consumption — and is encouraging us to do the same.

The announcement (thông báo) opens the door for (mở cánh cửa, "bật đèn xanh") the bug-based food market (thị trường thực phẩm các loài bọ), such as insect-enriched breads, pasta, cookies, candies and more.

Mealworms — not actually worms, but the larvae (ấu trùng) of Tenebrio Molitor beetles (bọ cánh cứng) — are packed with lean protein, healthy fats and fiber and are touted as one of the most underrepresented healthy foods in the world. EFSA chemist Ermolaos Ververis told Reuters that mealworms would likely be the first of many insect (côn trùng) species sanctioned (cấm vận) by the EU in coming years.

Thêm bia nữa càng tốt

các nhà dinh dưỡng nói rằng ăn sáng với pizza còn tốt hơn ngũ cốc ;)
-----

The nutritionist (nhà nghiên cứu về lĩnh vực dinh dưỡng) said it's due to the large amount of sugar (đường) found in many cereals.

Pizza may have more fat (chất béo), but it has less sugar. Thus, Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, CDN tells "The Daily Meal," you'll have a better chance of avoiding a sugar crash later on.

You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories.

Amer, who is based in New York, adds that pizza also has more protein (đạm).

Because of that, your appetite (sự ngon miệng, sự thèm ăn) would be more satisfied, and you would be more likely to avoid snacking (bữa ăn vội vàng, bữa ăn qua loa; bữa quà; chút thức ăn, chút rượu).

Chúng ta có một tin tốt và một tin xấu

giun móc có thể giúp ta 'chống lão hóa'...
-----

Being infected (tiêm nhiễm, đầu độc) with proteins derived from parasitic helminths (giun sán), like hookworms (giun móc) and whipworms, may prevent heart disease (bệnh tim), dementia (mất trí nhớ) and other life threatening conditions.

And it could help fight inflammation (sưng, viêm) and ward off (ngăn chặn) age related illnesses.

The worms, which once lived harmlessly in our intestines, have largely disappeared from westerners due to our modern lifestyles, including good sanitation.

But lead author Bruce Zhang, a biology student at University College London's Institute of Healthy Ageing, said the loss of our “old friends” may be linked to increases in ageing-associated inflammation.

Giờ khác xưa nhiều lắm

các cuộc cách mạng vệ sinh và y tế đã thay đổi rủi ro của tương tác toàn cầu, chỉ có 1% chết vì bệnh truyền nhiễm mà thôi...
-----
To see how much the sanitary (vệ sinh) and medical revolutions (cuộc cách mạng) have changed the risks (rủi ro) of global interaction, examine what kills Americans abroad these days: cardiovascular (thuộc tim mạch) events including heart attacks (đau tim, trụy tim) account for 49 percent of all deaths, injuries (chấn thương) for a further 25 percent, and infectious diseases (bệnh truyền nhiễm) other than pneumonia (viêm phổi) for just 1 percent…even travel to pathogen-rich environments has become far, far safer than it used to be: a study of 185 deaths of US Peace Corps volunteers, placed in some of the world’s least healthy countries, found that unintentional injuries and suicides (tự tử) were far more deadly than infection, accounting for more than 80 percent of deaths between them.

That is from Charles Kenny’s new and excellent The Plague Cycle: The Unending War Between Humanity and Infectious Disease, which was started well before Covid.

Dịch Covid-19: Sôi động thị trường bán hàng online

đã có mua bán giấy xét nghiệm giả âm tính, để được đi du lịch...

Illicit (lậu, bất hợp pháp) sales of fake (giả) negative (âm tính) Covid-19 test results are becoming more widespread as criminals (tội phạm) look to profit (lợi nhuận) from travel restrictions (hạn chế di chuyển) imposed (áp đặt) during the pandemic (đại dịch), according to Europol.

The EU’s law enforcement agency (cơ quan thực thi pháp luật) on Monday reported (báo cáo) an increase (gia tăng) in cases of fraudulent (không trung thực, lừa dối) Covid-19 test certificates (giấy xét nghiệm) being sold to travelers. It comes as an increasing number of countries in the European Union and beyond oblige (bắt buộc, cưỡng bách) travelers to present a negative coronavirus test in order to be allowed entry, when travelling from a high-risk area.

In its latest Early Warning Notification, which Europol issues to alert EU member states of new or increasingly prevalent forms of criminal activity, the agency said the latest case of this crime had been detected in Luton Airport in the U.K., where a man was arrested trying to sell false coronavirus test results. Elsewhere in the U.K., fraudsters were caught selling bogus (hư, ma giả, không có thật) Covid-19 test documents for £100 ($137).

There had also been earlier reports of similar activity in other European countries.

A forgery (giả mạo) ring at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, for example, was “dismantled” after being found selling forged negative test results to passengers, Europol said. The amount charged for the fake test documents ranged between 150-300 euros ($181-$363).

Another fraudster was apprehended in Spain for selling false negative test certificates on the internet for 40 euros, and in the Netherlands, scammers were discovered selling fake negative test results for 50-60 euros through messaging apps.

WHO gian dối về Covid-19

"chỉ đạo" ghi giấy báo tử là "chết vì covid-19" bất kể bệnh nền là gì -> "thổi phồng" tỷ lệ tử vong...
-----

As if this weren’t enough to increase the official tally (kiểm kê, tính toán) of deaths attributed to COVID-19 far beyond the numbers of UK citizens that actually died of the disease, there’s the additional problem of the changes to how death certificates (giấy báo tử) record the cause of death. On 20 April, the World Health Organisation (WHO) issued the ‘International guidelines for certification and classification (coding) of COVID-19 as cause of death’. These instructed medical practitioners that, if COVID-19 is the ‘suspected’ or ‘probable’ or ‘assumed’ cause of death, it must always be recorded, in Part 1 of the death certificate, as the ‘underlying cause’ of death. In contrast, co-morbidities such as cancer (ung thư), heart disease (bệnh tim), dementia (mất trí nhớ), diabetes (tiểu đường) or chronic (mạn tính) respiratory (đường hô hấp) infections other than COVID-19 should only be recorded in Part 2 of the death certificate as a ‘contributing’ cause. To clear up any confusion this may cause to a doctor filling out the death certificate of an 80-year-old patient who has died of cancer and tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 post mortem, the WHO instructed medical professionals: ‘Always apply these instructions, whether they can be considered medically correct or not.’

(DBx: This last quoted line sounded inaccurate even to my cynical ears, so I checked it out. It’s accurate. This unbelievable demand from the WHO for inaccuracy is outrageous. [Elmer’s link above doesn’t work for me, so I found the April 20th, 2020, WHO document here and downloaded it.])

Đi bộ cũng phải đúng cách

kết hợp nghe sách nói hoặc podcast yêu thích để khỏi ngại :)

Dear Dan,

It’s only January, and I’m already bored by my New Year’s resolution (nghị quyết đầu năm) to go on a walk each day (đi bộ mỗi ngày). What can I do to make this daily exercise more enjoyable?
—Saneel

Rather than dreading (kinh hãi, khiếp sợ, nghĩ đến mà sợ) the time you set aside for your daily walk, why don’t you try to combine it with something you find more pleasurable (mang lại niềm vui thích; thích thú)? For example, you could allow yourself to listen to your favorite audiobook or podcast only while you’re walking. The key is to keep this pleasure only for your walks and promise yourself not to listen to it any other time (tự hứa với mình ko nghe vào lúc nào khác (chỉ khi đi bộ thôi)). This way you will start to associate taking a walk with something positive, making you look forward to it as a reward rather than seeing it as an unpleasant obligation (nghĩa vụ khó chịu).

Vì voi không đặt được bánh pizza chứ sao nữa

nghiên cứu cho thấy một người trung bình còn béo hơn voi...

How are those New Year’s weight loss resolutions (nghị quyết đầu năm về giảm cân) going so far? For people who need more motivation to cut the fat out of their diet, a new study finds your average elephant is probably in better shape than most humans. An international research team says, despite their massive size, zoo elephants actually carry less body fat than the average person.

The team, led by Daniella Chusyd of Indiana University, wanted to understand why Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) living in zoos had lower birth rates (tỷ lệ sinh thấp) than their peers in the wild. Researchers say it was thought these captive elephants were overweight and this was leading to a fertility crisis among the zoo population. Such a connection is similar to what health experts see happening in overweight people.

Cannabis activists have come up with a way to entice (dụ dỗ) more people to get the coronavirus vaccine: Give them weed.

The group D.C. Marijuana Justice — the architects of Initiative 71, the 2014 ballot initiative that legalized pot possession and cultivation in the District — are plotting a cannabis giveaway around vaccination sites in the city. Those sites haven’t been announced yet, but the organization is readying volunteers to distribute free baggies of marijuana at multiple vaccination centers as they come online.

So far, local growers have pledged three pounds of cannabis to the giveaway, and organizers hope to collect a total of five pounds by the time they begin handing it out,

Phân phối vaccines chống Covid-19 như thế nào?

bằng xe đông lạnh vẫn thường để chở... tinh dịch bò nhé :)
-----
The Covid-19 pandemic (đại dịch) has seen many companies pivot to (chuyển hướng) producing personal protective equipment, ventilators (máy thở), and masks (khẩu trang). Now the Indian bull semen (tinh dịch bò) industry is looking at whether its refrigerated supply network (chuỗi cung ứng đông lạnh)—known as the cold chain—can help with vaccine distribution efforts.

The Covid-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna need to be kept at extremely low temperatures due to their mRNA genetic material. The AstraZeneca vaccine needs to be kept cold, but not as cold the other two. The tropical temperatures that cover much of India create a challenge (thách thức) to the upcoming (sắp tới) nationwide vaccination effort (nỗ lực tiêm chủng toàn quốc). It’s a logistical challenge the country’s bull semen industry is familiar with and wants to help solve.
