Le pouvoir coupefaim des protéines enfin élucidé

first_imgLe pouvoir coupe-faim des protéines enfin élucidéDes chercheurs français sont parvenus à expliquer le mécanisme qui entraîne une sensation de satiété plusieurs heures après un repas riche en protéines. C’est le rôle crucial d’un récepteur aux opiacés qui a été mis en lumière.L’équipe de l’Inserm (institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) travaillant sur nutrition et cerveau, a réussi à décrypter les mécanismes biologiques responsables de la sensation de satiété qui survient quelques heures après un repas riche en protéines. Des éléments nutritionnels notamment contenus dans le poisson, les œufs ou encore la viande. Or, si ce pouvoir des protéines est connu et est fréquemment vanté dans le cadre de régimes amaigrissants, son fonctionnement lui restait inexpliqué, du moins jusqu’ici.À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?En effet, des chercheurs travaillant sous la direction de Gilles Mithieux ont percé le mystère. Dans la revue scientifique américaine Cell, ils décrivent ainsi les réactions en chaîne provoquées par la digestion des protéines qui permettent, au final, de délivrer au cerveau un message de satiété, bien après le repas. Plus précisément, les scientifiques montrent comment les “oligopeptides” issus de la digestion des protéines passent dans la circulation sanguine puis interfèrent avec des récepteur mu-opioïdes présents au niveau de la paroi de la veine porte (qui draine le sang des viscères vers le foie). La digestion des protéines provoque alors une réaction en chaîne impliquant le système nerveux périphérique et central.Les récepteurs mu-opioïdes sont connus pour leur rôle dans le système nerveux du plaisir et leur effet antidouleur. Une fois stimulés, ceux-ci envoient un message par ces voies nerveuses vers le cerveau. En retour, celui-ci informe l’intestin qui déclenche la formation de glucose. Les détecteurs de glucose sont à leur tour informés et ils transmettent un message coupe-faim dans les zones du cerveau contrôlant la prise alimentaire.Mimer ce processus pour déclencher la satiétéAppliquées au niveau médical, ces nouvelles connaissances pourraient s’avérer très précieuses dans le cadre de régime amaigrissant. Elles permettraient par exemple d’arriver à mimer l’effet des oligopeptides pour mimer l’effet d’un repas riche en protéines. Toutefois, ce n’est pas si simple soulignent les chercheurs, car “s’ils sont trop sollicités, ces récepteurs deviennent insensibles”, explique M. Mithieux. “Il faudrait trouver le moyen de les inhiber doucement pour en garder les effets bénéfiques à long terme sur le contrôle de la prise alimentaire”, résume-t-il.Le 8 juillet 2012 à 10:59 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Police White Baltimore Murder Suspect Went to NYC to Attack Black Men

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — A White man from Baltimore bent on making a racist attack took a bus to New York City, the “media capital of the world,” randomly picked out a Black man who was collecting bottles on the street and fatally wounded him with a sword, police said Wednesday.James Harris Jackson, 28, turned himself in at a Times Square police station early Wednesday, a day after 66-year-old Timothy Caughman staggered into a police precinct bleeding to death.James Harris Jackson is escorted out of a police precinct in New York, Wednesday, March 22, 2017. Police said Jackson, accused of fatally stabbing a black man in New York City, told investigators he traveled from Baltimore specifically to attack black people. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)“I’m the person that you’re looking for,” he told police, according to Assistant Chief William Aubrey. He was arrested on suspicion of murder.Jackson told police he’d harbored feelings of hatred toward Black men for at least 10 years, authorities said. He traveled to New York on March 17 and had been staying in a Manhattan hotel.“The reason he picked New York is because it’s the media capital of the world, and he wanted to make a statement,” Aubrey said.Jackson was wandering the streets in a long overcoat concealing a 26-inch sword when he encountered Caughman, who was collecting bottles from trash cans, police said. Jackson stabbed him repeatedly, they said.Caughman, who lived nearby in a rooming house, was taken to a hospital, where he died.After the attack, Jackson went to the bathroom of a nearby restaurant and washed off the blood from the killing, authorities said.Investigators said they believed Jackson was considering other attacks but instead surrendered at a stationhouse after noticing his photo in media reports. He had two additional knives and told police where they could find the sword used in the killing, police said. It was retrieved from a trash can not far from the scene.Police reviewed video surrounding the area of the attack. They said Jackson appeared to stay within 10 blocks of the hotel. At one point, he appeared to walk purposefully toward a Black man, but there was no attack, they said.Jackson was expected to appear in court later Wednesday. It wasn’t clear when he might get a lawyer who could comment on his case. He said nothing to reporters as he was led from a precinct. A call to his family’s home rang unanswered.A former neighbor who tangled with Jackson over an apartment in Baltimore recalled him as “a piece of work” who fell months behind on rent and moved out without paying.“He’s just one of those people that you wish you never met,” said Marcus Dagan. He had been informally managing the building on behalf of its then-owner and took Jackson to court over the rent. Dagan said Jackson ultimately moved out in 2015 without paying up.When Jackson moved in in 2014, he indicated he was a military veteran and was in college, studying toward becoming a lawyer, Dagan said. Jackson left behind a collection of war movies in the apartment, the former neighbor said.The Navy and Marines said they didn’t have a record of Jackson serving in their forces; information wasn’t immediately available from the Army, Air Force or Coast Guard.Bias attacks overall have more than doubled this year in New York, and there have specifically been nine bias crimes against Black people reported so far this year, up from five last year.___Associated Press writer Kasey Jones in Baltimore contributed to this report.last_img read more

Why popular scents dont always make best perfumes

first_imgPerfumes that use the most common scents do not always obtain the highest number of ratings, according to an analysis of 10,000 perfumes and their online ratings. A recently published study, reveals which odours are likely to bring success, with some surprising combinations providing a boost to ratings. Perfumes are described in terms of ‘notes’, which can be single odour ingredients, such as vanilla, musk or jasmine, as well as more generic smells like ‘floral notes’. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfPerfume smell is then described in terms of a combination of these notes. Combinations of several notes that are commonly used in perfumes are called ‘accords’. Researchers used complex network analysis to determine the most popular notes and accords. They analysed 1,000 notes in over 10,000 perfumes and their success in online shops. They found that some notes and accords are ‘over-represented’ in the dataset, meaning they appear more often than by chance, but that these are not necessarily the ones that are present in perfumes with the highest number of ratings. “Our work provides insights into factors that play a role in the success of perfumes. It also sets up a framework for a statistical analysis of fragrances based on simple properties and customer reviews.”last_img read more

Miami beaches hit with mass arrival of Sargassum

first_imgThe sargassum, which landed on the beaches of Miami earlier this week, remains an issue for beachgoers despite cleaning since there is a constant flow of the algae washing up on shores. To prevent the eggs from damage during beach cleaning days, officials have placed red cones in the nesting areas. According to CNN, the county of South Florida has planned a massive collection of the seaweed with heavy machinery over the next few days in three of the busiest tourist beaches, however, the presence of sea turtle eggs creates a difficult situation. Miami, Florida — Approximately 24 kilometers (15 miles) of Miami beach is again covered in a thick mass of sargassum with the recent arrival of more seaweed. According to CNN, the excess of sargassum is due to the polluting chemicals that are poured from the coasts of Brazil, which has caused the algae to grow excessively and arrive both in Miami and the beaches of Quintana Roo.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Microsoft makes the first preview builds of Chromiumbased Edge available for testing

first_imgYesterday, Microsoft released the first preview builds of its Chromium-powered Edge browser for Windows 10. This comes after Microsoft announced last year in December that it will be adopting the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge for desktop. You can download these preview builds for testing from the Microsoft Edge Insider site. The new builds are available through three different Microsoft Edge Insider Channels: Beta, Canary, and Developer. Canary builds are the ones that will receive updates every night. Developer builds are much more stable than the Canary builds and will be updated weekly. Beta builds are the most stable ones as compared to the three and will receive updates every 6 weeks. Source: Microsoft Right now, Microsoft is only opening the Developer and Canary channels. Though the company was not so clear about the timeline in the announcement, it does promises that the Beta builds and support for Mac and all the other supported versions of Windows will come in the future. However, there is no mention of whether this new overhauled Microsoft Edge will support Linux. In these preview builds, the team has mostly focussed on the fundamentals. So, current users will not see an extensive range of features and language support. These new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge preview builds do look strikingly similar to Google Chrome. Among the similarities include subtle design finishes, a dark mode, and the ability to manage your sign-in profile. In this Chromium-based Edge implementation, Microsoft has removed or replaced about 50 services that are included in Chromium. Some of them are Google Now, Google Cloud Messaging, and Chrome-OS related services. More details regarding the updates will be shared during a BlinkOn 10 keynote today. These preview builds also bring support for an expanded selection of extensions. Users will no longer have to just choose from the limited set of extensions available on Microsoft’s store as extensions from other third-party stores like Chrome Web Store are also supported. Since this is based on Chromium, it also comes with support for Progressive Web Apps and supports the same developer tools as Chromium. Microsoft is working closely with the team at Google and hopes to work with the broader Chromium community going forward. Their latest contributions to the Chromium open source project includes in areas like accessibility, touch, ARM64, and others. In the future, it plans to introduce smooth scrolling, a reading view free of distractions, grammar tools, and Microsoft Translator integration. Users who have tested these preview builds are finding it unsurprisingly very similar to Chrome. One of the users are Reddit remarks, “To the surprise of no one, its basically chrome. Even my google account came in logged in automatically, same recent sites etc. I wonder if the roadmap will include things like dark mode, I never used the annotations feature so can’t vouch much for it. I’m yet to try to make a MS Teams call but looking good so far.” The Verge, after testing the preview builds, shared that the Chromium-powered Edge is showing even better performance than Google Chrome. Many users are also saying that instead of joining hands with Google, Microsoft could have instead gone with Firefox to make the web fair and accessible. “I wish they’ve would have gone with Firefox’s Quantum, in order to try and at least balance out web market shares. MSFT no longer has any leverage in the web, so trying to keep it fair and accessible (no browser monopolies) should be a priority for them (especially since they have quite a few web platforms like office 365),” adds a redditor.

BofA Loses Bid to Overturn Hustle Verdict

first_imgBofA Loses Bid to Overturn ‘Hustle’ Verdict in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News, Secondary Market Bank of America Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Justice Department 2015-02-04 Seth Welborn Sharecenter_img February 4, 2015 591 Views Bank of America lost its bid on Tuesday to overturn a jury verdict that resulted in a $1.27 billion civil penalty over the packaging and selling of toxic residential mortgage-backed securities to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the run-up to the financial crisis, according to media reports.The bank’s bid to reverse the jury decision was rejected by U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan. The bank’s request for a new trial was also denied by Rakoff.The U.S. Department of Justice sued Bank of America in August 2013, accusing the bank’s Countrywide division of misrepresenting the mortgage-backed securities it sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the years leading up to the financial crisis through a program known as the High Speed Swim Lane (HSSL, or “Hustle”). The government said the program emphasized speed over quality of the loans sold, and staff members were rewarded according to sales volume.Larry Grayson, a spokesman for Bank of America, declined to comment on Tuesday’s verdict but did say that the bank planned to appeal the underlying decision.Bank of America was ordered to pay a $1.27 billion penalty in July 2014 as a result of its alleged role in the “Hustle” case. The bank had been fighting to overturn that verdict  since, claiming that the HSSL program ended prior to its acquisition of Countrywide.Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America acquired Countrywide in 2008 for $4 billion, but has since had to pay many more billions in settlements, legal costs, and loan buybacks as a result of that acquisition. In December, it was announced that former Countrywide executive Edward O’Donnell will collect $57 million for his role in filing a whistle-blower lawsuit against Bank of America in the HSSL case. O’Donnell filed his suit under the False Claims Act.In a separate case, Bank of America agreed to a record $16.65 billion settlement with the Department of Justice in August 2014 over the packaging and selling of toxic residential mortgage-backed securities.last_img read more

Fed Freezes on Rate Hike

first_imgFed Freezes on Rate Hike Even  though the housing sector has shown further improvement, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) dodged another rate increase this month like many in the industry predicted.With many economic factors on the path to improvement, many are wondering why the Fed held off this month and when the Committee will actually follow through with one of the anticipated increases.The FOMC stated in a press release that labor market conditions have improved due to strong job gains, while economic growth has slowed. Household spending is a moderate pace  although real income has increased and consumer sentiment remains elevated.The committee noted that the housing sector has improved since the beginning of the year. However, on the downside, the committee noted that inflation is still running below the 2 percent long-run objective.”Against this backdrop, the committee decided to maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 1/4 to 1/2 percent,” the announcement said. “The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting further improvement in labor market conditions and a return to 2 percent inflation.”The committee said that they expect, with “gradual adjustments in the stance of monetary policy, economic activity will expand at a moderate pace and labor market indicators will continue to strengthen.”As for future rate increases, the FOMC noted that they will take into account measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial and international developments and continue to monitor inflation changes.”The committee expects that economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant only gradual increases in the federal funds rate; the federal funds rate is likely to remain, for some time, below levels that are expected to prevail in the longer run,” the release said. “However, the actual path of the federal funds rate will depend on the economic outlook as informed by incoming data.”National Association of Federal Credit Unions President and CEO Dan Berger said in response to Fed’s decision to leave rates unchanged, “The FOMC’s decision to hold off on a rate hike was widely expected, as recent readings on consumer spending and inflation have been weak.”He continued, “More importantly, uncertainty over the global economy has led policy makers to take a wait-and-see approach. All eyes shift to the next meeting in June, but in the absence of inflationary pressure, there is little urgency for the Fed to resume rate normalization.” in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Federal Funds Rate Federal Open Market Committee Federal Reserve FOMC Interest rates 2016-04-27 Staff Writercenter_img Share April 27, 2016 777 Views last_img read more

QA Casey Affleck on new film his Oscars absence

first_imgQ&A: Casey Affleck on new film, his Oscars absence and MeToo by Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Aug 9, 2018 10:00 am PDT Last Updated Aug 9, 2018 at 11:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this Aug. 3, 2018 photo, actor Casey Affleck poses for a portrait at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles to promote his upcoming film “The Old Man & The Gun,” in theaters on Sept. 28. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) center_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – With a new movie coming out this fall, “The Old Man & The Gun,” Casey Affleck is speaking publicly about bowing out of presenting the best actress Oscar and past harassment allegations against him amid the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Affleck reflects on the Oscars, the film, which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and past harassment allegations against him in light of #MeToo, apologizing for allowing an unprofessional atmosphere on set which led to two civil lawsuits from women he worked with that were later settled.Excerpts from the conversation, Affleck’s first interview in a year, have been edited for clarity and brevity. A video of the interview can be seen here: http://apne.ws/LZLm50A .AP: What do you like about this film?AFFLECK: I love David (Lowery), I love working for David and it’s my third movie with him and he always assembles a really nice group of people around him. It’s such a nice experience to watch one of his movies. They all have a very gentle quality to them… And Robert Redford, what is there to say? He’s a legend, an incredibly sweet guy and just sharp as a tack. It was lovely working with him.AP: The last time we spoke you were promoting another David Lowery film, “A Ghost Story.” What have you been up to in the last year?AFFLECK: I made “The Old Man & the Gun,” I made another movie called “Light of My Life,” and I’ve just been spending the rest of the time with my kids and my girlfriend and just trying to squeeze in a little bit of life. And if I’m not promoting a movie, I’m not going to do any press, so that’s why you haven’t heard from me.AP: You also earlier this year made the decision to step away from presenting the best actress award at the Oscars. Why did you do that?AFFLECK: I think it was the right thing to do just given everything that was going on in our culture at the moment. And having two incredible women go present the best actress award felt like the right thing.AP: During your best actor Oscar campaign for “Manchester By the Sea,” allegations resurfaced regarding two civil lawsuits from the making of your film “I’m Still Here,” that were settled in 2010. But we haven’t heard from you since #MeToo and Time’s Up became a big talking point in the culture. Has that made you reflect on or reevaluate anything about the experience or the atmosphere on that set?AFFLECK: First of all, that I was ever involved in a conflict that resulted in a lawsuit is something that I really regret. I wish I had found a way to resolve things in a different way. I hate that. I had never had any complaints like that made about me before in my life and it was really embarrassing and I didn’t know how to handle it and I didn’t agree with everything, the way I was being described, and the things that were said about me, but I wanted to try to make it right, so we made it right in the way that was asked at the time. And we all agreed to just try to put it behind us and move on with our lives, which I think we deserve to do, and I want to respect them as they’ve respected me and my privacy. And that’s that.Over the past couple of years, I’ve been listening a lot to this conversation, this public conversation, and learned a lot. I kind of moved from a place of being defensive to one of a more mature point of view, trying to find my own culpability. And once I did that I discovered there was a lot to learn. I was a boss. I was one of the producers on the set. This movie was (shot in 2008, 2009) and I was one of the producers. And it was a crazy mockumentary, (a) very unconventional movie. The cast was the crew and the crew was kind of the cast and it was an unprofessional environment and, you know, the buck had to stop with me being one of the producers and I have to accept responsibility for that and that was a mistake. And I contributed to that unprofessional environment and I tolerated that kind of behaviour from other people and I wish that I hadn’t. And I regret a lot of that. I really did not know what I was responsible for as the boss. I don’t even know if I thought of myself as the boss. But I behaved in a way and allowed others to behave in a way that was really unprofessional. And I’m sorry.AP: I know you talked last year about taking your kids to women’s marches and trying to educate them. Is there anything that has come up since #MeToo and Time’s Up emerged in the culture?AFFLECK: Well I’ve taken these lessons with me that I’ve learned not just to work but to home and as dad and it informs how you parent. I have two boys so I want to be in a world where grown men model compassion and decency and also contrition when it’s called for, and I certainly tell them to own their mistakes when they make them.AP: You’re also a boss, you have a production company, Sea Change Media, and you’ve directed your first film since “I’m Still Here” too. Can you talk about how you have evolved and changed to create a safe working environment for people who work for you?AFFLECK: I think that, there’s been a lot of talk about new things in regards to the workplace and I have this production company and this very, very smart woman runs it with me and she’s been way ahead of the curve on all of these issues.But I think bigger picture, in this business women have been underrepresented and underpaid and objectified and diminished and humiliated and belittled in a bazillion ways and just generally had a mountain of grief thrown at them forever. And no one was really making too much of a fuss about it, myself included, until a few women with the kind of courage and wisdom to stand up and say, “You know what? Enough is enough.” Those are the people who are kind of leading this conversation and should be leading the conversation. And I know just enough to know that in general I need to keep my mouth shut and listen and try to figure out what’s going on and be a supporter and a follower in the little, teeny tiny ways that I can. And we do that at our production company and I try to do it at home, and if I’m ever called upon by anyone to help in any way and contribute, I’d be more than happy to.AP: Your “Manchester by the Sea” director Kenneth Lonergan had implied that you had been treated unfairly. Do you have any response to that?AFFLECK: Whether I have or haven’t, I think that there are people in the world who deal with much greater hardship than that. And they do so without complaint. So I don’t think I need to say anything else about it.AP: And at your production company, what sort of projects are you looking for and what sort of filmmakers are you looking to shepherd?AFFLECK: Whitaker (Lader), who runs the company, does all the good work and then I kind of make some noise on the sidelines too. We’re trying to find people who can tell stories that we don’t usually see in mainstream pop culture, movies, media, Hollywood, with storytellers who need a hand.___Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahrlast_img read more

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) Swedish band Ghost finds itself in new Grammy category NEW YORK — The first time Tobias Forge walked up to collect a Grammy, few people knew his name — and that was purposeful.The leader of the Swedish metal group Ghost fiercely protected his anonymity and hid behind thick ghoulish makeup.This year, if Forge’s band’s name is called, he says he will go up as himself, leaving aside his costume and alter ego.He has two chances: Ghost is up for best rock album and best rock song. It’s a category switch from 2016, when it won for best metal performance.Forge creates demonic characters for every album and his latest is the creepy Cardinal Copia. Forge was unmasked in 2017 when former band members sued him, forcing him to reveal his identity.___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwitsMark Kennedy, The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press Posted Feb 5, 2019 7:59 am PDTlast_img read more
