Scientists have proven the benefits of black tea for vascular disease

Russian scientists, having conducted studies on rats, have proved the benefits of black tea in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. This is reported by the press service of the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics (ITEB) RAS with reference to Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy.

Scientists have shown that a cup of black tea of ordinary strength is able to prevent the oxidation process in the aorta after irradiation. 

“The study was conducted on rodents, which were created with the help of ionizing radiation in the vessels, thus provoking the rapid initiation of atherosclerosis,” the ITEB RAS reported.

Yuri Korystov, one of the authors of the study, notes that an increase in the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in blood vessels is the main factor in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. 

“A significant contribution to the increase in ROS production is made by an increase in the concentration of angiotensin II, a product of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). <..."In our work, rats were given tea of different brewing strength at different times before irradiation and recorded the activity of ACE and the formation of ROS in the aorta," he added, noting that the tea suppressed the activation of ACE initiated by radiation and an increase in ROS in the aorta.

Black tea, as it turned out during the study, suppressed oxidative stress in the aorta three hours before irradiation, while green tea – six hours before. Based on this, scientists suggest that tea may be recommended for radiotherapy of tumors.Earlier it was reported that English scientists have developed a test that is able to detect 50 types of cancer long before the appearance of symptoms.

Doctors told how they feel, saving the lives of criminals

When saving the lives of criminals, you need to turn off emotions and think about the fact that, first of all, this is a person. This opinion is shared by doctors who have treated and operated on intruders.

Surgeon and Doctor of Medical Sciences Igor Korotkiy operated on an 18-year-old student who staged a shootout in the PSNIU. In a conversation with the TV channel “360”, he said that criminals, while in a medical institution, are necessarily handcuffed. Law enforcement officers are always near them, even during the operation. According to him, the doctor’s opinion that an attacker is in front of him should remain somewhere in the back of his mind. 

“We are not judges, we are doctors. Such cases, in order to do something poorly, are excluded-this is a crime, then we also become criminals, ” adds Korotkiy. 

Plastic, aesthetic, reconstructive surgeon Galina Dekasper notes that a criminal needs to save his life so that he is responsible for his actions “not in the next world, but in this one”.

Both doctors are sure that if emotions get the better of their colleagues, they need to be removed and take someone who can cope with their feelings. 

Earlier it was reported that doctors amputated part of the leg of a student who staged a shooting at the Perm University.

Why is there a king in Europe, and a tsar in Russia?

Weekly magazine “Arguments and Facts” No. 38. Family… or three I’s. The “cell of society”: a support or a burden? 22/09/2021 The expert’s answer is 0 + –

“Initially, the title of the monarch went back to the ancient Proto-Germanic word kuninggaz,” says Candidate of Historical Sciences Alexander Bayramov. & nbsp; & ndash; From & nbsp;he derived the German & laquo; koenig & raquo;, the English & laquo;king», the Scandinavian & laquo;king» and & nbsp;our & laquo; prince & raquo;. All together denotes the supreme tribal leader. The word “king” in the Slavic languages appeared in the time of Charlemagne. Actually, “the king”and” there is a distorted “Charles” our ancestors, impressed by the deeds of this man, transferred his name to the title. And & nbsp;here is the word & laquo; king» goes back to & nbsp;the name of the first emperor of the Roman Empire Gaius Julius Caesar Octavian Augustus. After him, all the rulers of the Roman Empire were called Caesars in Russian “tsars”. It was believed that there can be only one king-Caesar-he dominates even over kings. In 1547. Ivan the Terrible proclaimed himself tsar. Europe did not recognize this title for the Russian monarch for a long time, but was subsequently forced to give up.

Where did the DPRK get an analog of the Soviet rocket train?

Weekly magazine “Arguments and Facts” No. 38. Family… or three I’s. The “cell of society”: a support or a burden? 22/09/2021 The expert’s answer is 3 + –

The Korean train is outwardly indistinguishable from the Soviet railway strategic missile system with the T-23 UTTH ICBM “Well done” . But the Korean version uses KN-23 short-range missiles. However, they are enough to deliver a nuclear warhead weighing 500 kg to most targets in South Korea.

“There could not be a transfer of this technology from Russia, especially since we ourselves are planning to develop it,” said the former head of the General Staff of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Viktor Esin.  & ndash; But the development of the T-23 & shy;UTTH & laquo; Well done» was engaged in several former Soviet republics, for example, Ukraine. However, if Kiev shared this with Pyongyang, then it was probably done in the strictest secret.

In the Novosibirsk region there was a mass death of crows

The mass death of crows in the Novosibirsk region could be caused by poisoning. Such an opinion in an interview with Газетой.ги the ornithologist of the Bird Protection Fund Vadim Avdanin expressed his opinion.

Earlier, a video appeared on social networks with hundreds of dead crows in the village of Ust-Tarka, while other animals and birds were not injured. 

According to Avdanin, the incident is not related to the epidemic, because in case of diseases, birds do not fall dead at once as a whole flock. 

“Somewhere a flock has been pecked, and not necessarily in a landfill. They could also eat the pickled grain in the fields, ” the expert believes.

Recall that in August, an emergency mode was introduced in Taimyr after the discovery of more than 50 deer carcasses.

It was also reported about the mass death of cats in the UK.

Not for long from afar. The US has shown the technology of a massive strike on Russia

Air Force (Air Force) The United States and the American corporation Lockheed Martin showed a video of tests of C-17A Globemaster III and EC-130J Super J aircraft dropping pallets with AGM-158B Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range (JASSM-ER) cruise stealth missiles. Taking into account the capabilities of these missiles, the new technology will allow for massive missile strikes against strategic objects in Russia.

These tests took place in August at the White Sands Missile Range (New Mexico). Mock-ups of JASSM-ER missiles were launched from the C-17A transporter and the EC-130J Super J aircraft. The latter is a modification of the C-130J transport vehicle, designed for carrying out communication operations. This bomber is considered universal, so the concept of application is often changed for it.

During the exercises, the pallets with mock-ups of missiles were dropped with parachutes, and after stabilization they separated from the carriers. At the beginning of the exercise, the transporters received the coordinates of the drop point, after the release, a new target for the strike was determined, which required re-targeting of the missiles.

In the coming months, Lockheed Martin and the military will conduct additional tests, and at the end of the year they will test the JASSM-ER missiles themselves from the C‑130J transport vehicle.

In the comments to the video, it is reported that the Rapid Dragon concept turns aircraft into deadly platforms for cruise missiles, which will complement the strike power of tactical fighters and strategic bombers. It is noted that the use of flights allows you to strike from a larger number of airfields and hit a larger number of targets. & laquo;Rapid Dragon: bringing more mass to the fight & raquo;, —says the & nbsp; pathos caption to the video.

Western experts report that the shown method of using aircraft can be useful in a situation of war with an enemy that has large territories and large armies, for example, with China or Russia.

The US military in 2016 introduced the concept of “flying arsenals”. The military assumed that the B-1B Lancer, B-52H, C-130 or C-17 GLobemaster III bombers could be converted into “arsenals”. After the modernization, the aircraft will receive various sets of weapons. The flying arsenal will be located at a distance and launch the desired type of ammunition on command from a fighter or drone that will act as spotters.

Experiments with transport aircraft in the quality of rocket trucks under the Rapid Dragon program began last year. The military installed an autonomous system on them on pallets with roller lowering and rolling back. In May, the MC-130J Commando II transport aircraft was tested as a cruise missile carrier.

In June, it was also reported that the MC-130J Commando II aircraft of the US Air Force dropped a cargo simulating a pallet with JASSM-ER cruise stealth missiles.

In June 2020, American publications reported that the AGM-158B JASSM-ER missile is capable of reaching Russia without entering the area of airspace controlled by S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems. It was claimed that this is enough to attack the main strategic objects of Russia in the Arctic and parts of Siberia.
