Atoms / Los átomos teaches big concepts to little kids

Personified protons, neutrons, and electrons teach big concepts to little kids in these new picture books—now bilingual, too!

'What's that made of?' is such a simple question, but finding the answer can lead to a lifetime of scientific exploration. This book is a first step in that important journey!”

— Adam Cohen, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Harvard University

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Science Naturally is positively excited to introduce the paperback edition of Atoms, the first book in the My First Science Textbook series, and Atoms / Los átomos, the bilingual (E/Sp) edition.

Atoms are the essential building blocks that make up everything in our universe. Teaching young children about important things they cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or touch can be challenging, but resources like these new books encourage them to use their vast imaginations to ponder how something so small can be so essential.

John Coveyou, the founder of Genius Games, and creator of the My First Science Textbook series, is a long-time chemistry teacher. He noticed that, no matter the age of his students, many of them perceived science to be intimidating. This inspired him to find a fun and memorable way to introduce young people to some of the most fundamental concepts in chemistry.

These adorable books—which can be used with preschoolers and elementary-aged children—use simple rhyming sentences and vibrantly colorful illustrations to make the basics of chemistry accessible. The science is introduced in a way that's memorable, educational, and fun. As Adam Cohen, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Harvard University says, “'What's that made of?' is such a simple question, but finding the answer can lead to a lifetime of scientific exploration. This book is a first step in that important journey!”

This series was originally published in hardback by Genius Games, LLC in 2016 through a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. The campaign was fully funded within eight hours of its launch, and brought in over $100,000. This enthusiasm from parents, teachers, librarians, and readers alike demonstrates not only the importance of teaching small children big concepts, but the need and desire for early STEM education.

The English/Spanish bilingual edition, Atoms / Los átomos, will be published simultaneously with the English paperback. Science Naturally is committed to creating reading materials that are accessible and available to all readers. This title, like all world language editions Science Naturally publishes, aims to keep non-native English speakers, as well as Spanish language learners, excited about STEM topics and inspired to learn more.

An extensive Teacher’s Guide, available in English, can be downloaded at no charge from the publisher’s website. It provides further information, hands-on activities, and articulations to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), making this book an invaluable science resource.

Author Mary Wissinger was born in Wisconsin where she spent most of her childhood singing, reading, and daydreaming. In addition to writing the My First Science Textbook series on particles, she is also the author of the Science Wide Open book series on famous female scientists in biology, chemistry, and physics. A former teacher, she can now be found at her standing desk in St. Louis, MO, writing stories that inspire curiosity about the world and connection with others. She can be reached at Mary.Wissinger@ScienceNaturally.com.

Karl Storz, Stryker, and Olympus: Global Hybrid and Integrated OR Leaders Drive Innovation Despite COVID-19 Headwinds

Hybrid and Integrated Operating Rooms: iData's Global Market Analysis

Specialized technicians and surgeons have outgrown operating rooms that do not optimize information, time, and space. As a result, hybrid and integrated ORs have regained traction in Q3/Q4’20.”

— Dr. Kamran Zamanian, Senior Partner and CEO of iData Research

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — iData Research, a global consulting and market research firm, has released exclusive research on the global hybrid and integrated operating room (OR) markets. The research addresses key insights including the effects of COVID-19 in 2020, 2021, and beyond. While the market is down from previous years, iData’s forecasts show an increase in popularity, technological advancements, and construction of new healthcare facilities, leading to a strong recovery moving forward.

According to iData's Global Report for Hybrid and Integrated ORs, the combined global market covering 70 countries was estimated at just over $500 million in 2020, a substantial decline following COVID-19 headwinds. However, the market has started to recover moving into 2021 and is expected to reach almost $1 billion by 2027. This report includes unit sales, average selling prices, market drivers and limiters, competitive market share analysis, and more.

iData's analysis covers both the hybrid operating room and integrated operating room markets. Between the two markets, the hybrid operating rooms are projected to experience the greatest growth at double-digit rates. Growth within this market will mainly occur due to the adoption of new technologies. Because hybrid ORs require more equipment, their cost of integration is higher, pushing average selling prices to increase. Popularity has also increased for hybrid ORs which is similarly contributing to the increased average selling prices and the overall growth.

Among the many competitors within these markets, Karl Storz, Stryker, and Olympus are the leaders followed by STERIS and Getinge. Skytron is trailing the leaders by a substantial margin, pushing for a larger share of the global market. There is a multitude of other competitors analyzed within this report which have one or more products offered in this space.

To accurately estimate market shares, units sold, average selling prices, product segments, and brands as well as procedural volumes, iData Research uses its proprietary market and procedure databases, as well as hospital purchase order data to complement its primary and secondary research initiatives.

123-Align Launches ‘Smiles for All’: At-Home Clear Aligners System at an Affordable Price

Smiles for All

High-quality aligner material

As easy as 1-2-3

Thanks to 123 Align and Teledentistry innovations, now you can get a new smile at home from your mobile phone, tablet or computer.

You don’t have to hide your smile anymore… 1-2-3 Align, Smiles for All™!”

— Daniel Uzbelger Feldman

FORT MILL, SC, UNITED STATES, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you hiding your smile behind a mask? U Smile Dental, LLC (“123-Align” or the “Company”), an FDA registered and HIPAA compliant dental aligner company, today announced the launch of “Smiles for All”: at-home clear aligners system at an affordable price.

Malocclusions or crooked teeth are one of the major oral health problems ranking third as per the World Health Organization. Despite of all the advantages of in-office orthodontic braces, 2/3 of the US population is suffering from malocclusion. This happens due to the high cost of current teeth straightening treatments and the inconvenience to attend numerous in-office dental visits during several months. These barriers have provided the global invisible aligners market a size valuation of USD 2.2 billion in 2019 which is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.1% from 2020 to 2027.

Thanks to 123-Align latest advances in medical polymer materials, 3D scanners, 3D printers and the incorporation of 100% Teledentistry-based aligner case review service, you can get a new smile from your mobile phone, tablet, or computer at an affordable price. This nationwide ‘Smiles for All’ at-home clear braces system closes the gap for those patients with lack of access to dental care while addressing a serious public health issue.

1. The innovative medical polymer material used in 123-Align clear aligner is highly transparent, BPA free, latex free and 100% recyclable which is consistent with the company’s green planet mission. 123-Align also utilizes high-end 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies to ensure not only a precise and comfortable aligner fit but also a successful treatment outcome for you.

2. The company consults with a team of expert US licensed dentists in 45 states to ensure medical/dental history and 3D treatment design review as well as invisible aligner case (mild to moderate) approval without visits to the dental clinic allowing time for the patients to focus on the things that matter to them the most.

3. In addition to the high-quality clear braces 123-Align provides through its technologies, techniques and experienced professionals, “the company is democratizing the dental aligner industry by focusing on you, the patients via an affordable aligner pricing,” said Dr. Daniel Uzbelger Feldman, founder & visionary of 123-Align.

“Getting at -home clear aligners at an affordable price is as easy as 1-2-3: https://www.123-align.com/

You don’t have to hide your smile anymore… 1-2-3 Align, Smiles for All™!

In the Goop Lab Episode 5, Gwenyth Paltrow interviews John Amaral, an energetic healer and chiropractor. He practices Network Spinal, a holistic technique.

"Many of our practice members come in that have experienced some form of emotional or physical trauma in their past. Each person deals with trauma like this differently.”

— Dr. Kira Wong

SOLANA BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — After deeply researching the internet, we found compelling scientific information regarding Network Spinal. This holistic chiropractic technique is shown on NETFLIX through The Goop Lab Episode 5. Gwenyth Paltrow and team interview John Amaral – an energetic healer and doctor of chiropractic. He practices a chiropractic technique called Network Spinal, formerly known as Network Spinal Analysis or Network chiropractic.

This chiropractic technique, founded by Dr. Donald Epstein in the 1980’s, takes a very different approach than the traditional “cracking and popping,” type of chiropractic. Instead of manual adjustments to the spine, Network Spinal utilizes gentle and specific touchpoints along the spine to unwind stored tension and trauma within the body and nervous system. It uses the body’s innate wisdom and energy so that the body can essentially learn to heal on its own.

Is this exorcism, pseudoscience, and something else?

Common myths about The Goop Lab Episode 5 is that this work is religion or witchcraft. Thankfully these were all debunked after reviewing this thorough guide by Twin Waves Wellness Center. This holistic chiropractic office practices Network Spinal in Solana Beach, CA. They brought their own experiences, along with their practice members, to light. You may be pleasantly surprised that this chiropractic work is extremely effective on a multitude of levels. If you have wondered what is the Goop Lab Episode 5, you will get many of your questions answered here.

How do people feel during and after a network spinal entrainment?

In the Goop Lab Episode 5, Gwenyth Paltrow describes her experience after a spinal entrainment: “It was like the slate had just been cleaned. Afterward, I felt incredibly, deeply peaceful.” Gwenyth’s experience during the Goop Lab Episode 5 is very common. Many people experience both physical and emotional relief after seeing a Network Spinal chiropractor. Of course, certain people come in with injuries and simply want them healed. That part, for most chiropractors of any technique, is one of the core parts of their service. Companies like Twin Waves Wellness Center have described their services as that and more.

Dr. Kira Wong of Twin Waves stated, "Many of our practice members come in that have experienced some form of emotional or physical trauma in their past. Each person deals with trauma like this differently. It's common for people to hide from that trauma and bury it. When this happens, that trauma can get stored in the body and show up as pains, aches, and injuries. Have you ever felt nauseous because you were in an intense life-or-death situation? That is your body reacting to an event. At our practice, we help people work through this stored tension from past traumas they may have experienced. The Goop Lab does a good job of showing that this holistic approach works."

This holistic chiropractic care can help people in both their bodies, spirits, and hearts.

With coronavirus vaccination rates slowing down, what role employers can take to help meet the goal of achieving herd immunity against coronavirus?

Polls conducted earlier this year found that 63% of white Americans say they are interested in taking the Covid 19 vaccine, while only 49% of black Americans feel the same way.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Why Should We Care That Covid Vaccination Rates Are Slowing Down Across The US?

US health officials fear the chance of achieving herd immunity against coronavirus is slipping away.

The problem is no longer a lack of available vaccines but fewer people coming forward to be inoculated.

Why should we be concerned about this?

There are several key points to consider.

Herd immunity occurs when upwards of around 75% to 95%* of the population gain immunity to an infectious disease – either by contracting it and developing antibodies to it or receiving a vaccine. The scenario makes it very difficult for a communicable disease, such as coronavirus, to replicate, thus bringing an end to the outbreak.

*The actual percentage varies from disease to disease; since coronavirus is novel e.g. new, we don’t know the exact answer yet, but many epidemiologists think a safer number would 85% or higher.

If we don’t eradicate coronavirus from the population, what are we giving up?

First and foremost, non-vaccinated people can help spread the virus, and an active infectious disease that continues to circulate can genetically mutate over time – resulting in either a more virulent (e.g. dangerous) or a more contagious variant, such as the one that originated in India and is now rapidly spreading within the UK.

Epidemiologists believe that unless the coronavirus is eradicated worldwide, there is a small but frightening chance that a dangerous new version of coronavirus could emerge that would render our existing vaccines incapable of protecting people.

In this doomsday scenario, all the sacrifices everyone has made during lockdown would be for naught – and we’d be facing another one to two years of pandemic while Pharma companies rush to develop next-generation vaccines.

The second concern is that herd immunity helps protect those who, due to medical conditions, cannot be vaccinated (such as the very young) or for whom vaccinations are less effective. For example, recent research indicates that those with certain health conditions may not be able to create as many antibodies as those with healthy immune systems. Individuals in these categories would be better protected from disease once we achieve herd immunity.

Different Communities, Different Vaccination Rates

Let’s shift gears now and talk about what managers need to consider when encouraging employees to get Covid vaccinations at work.

The first point is that employers should not assume that everyone feels the same about getting vaccinated.

Indeed, public opinion surveys point to long-standing differences among different ethnic, religious, socioeconomic, and politically affiliated groups.

For example, prior to the coronavirus pandemic, public health officials were able to trace unexpected outbreaks of childhood measles back to school districts where a significant percentage of parents have gotten waivers to exempt their children from receiving MMR vaccines that protect against measles.

Upon investigation, public health officials discovered there were two different communities involved:

The first was conservative Jewish (Hassidic) communities, primarily in the greater New York area, that did not want to vaccinate their children for religious reasons.

The second group was found primarily in upper-middle-class communities, in places like Austin and the West Coast. Many of these parents actively campaigned as “anti-vaxxers,” promoting the widely debunked theory that vaccines can cause autism or other health issues.

Given this history of vaccine hesitancy, public health officials have been actively using polling organizations to identify and quantify the level of concerns about Covid vaccines among different ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic groups.

For example, polls conducted earlier this year found that 63% of white Americans say they are interested in taking the Covid 19 vaccine, while only 49% of black Americans feel the same way. Fortunately, this number is improving in recent days, according to Kaiser Health News.

What’s the reason for this disparity? Especially considering that statistically, black Americans have been hit harder by the coronavirus in terms of infection rates and mortality.

Public health historians point to long-standing distrust among black communities toward US government health programs, in particular, the deceptive, dishonest, and destructive Tuskegee Syphilis Study conducted by the United States Public Health Service and the CDC over a 40-year period in the middle of the last century.

Hispanics are another ethnic group that has been especially hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic. At the beginning of the year, public health officials were very discouraged by the low number of Hispanic survey respondents who wanted to get a Covid 19 vaccine. However, a more recent survey shows a dramatic uptick in positive territory for Hispanic respondents.

Another group of great concern is long-term caretakers. A recent PEW Trust poll found that only around half of these frontline workers have been vaccinated.

Finally, unlike most previous disease outbreaks, coronavirus has taken on a distinctly political aspect, with many politically conservative people voicing strong opinions against wearing masks, for example. Public health surveys continue to find a high percentage of conservative Republicans, especially men, are resistant to the idea of getting the coronavirus vaccine, with 4 out of 10 Republicans saying they do not plan to get a vaccine according to the latest PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll.

What Are Some Common Reasons For Vaccine Hesitancy?

Public health officials have also tried to identify specific reasons for what they call “vaccine hesitancy” among different individuals.

The results are quite fascinating.

It turns out that quite a few objections are fairly reasonable and can be overcome fairly easily.

We’ll look at this category first and address the set of more difficult objections in the next section below.

So what are some of the more common objections to getting the coronavirus vaccine?

Researchers have found that many respondents give one or more of these answers:

– I’m too busy to get the vaccine.
– It’s complicated to sign up, and it will take all day. If I don’t work, I don’t get paid.
– Getting two shots is very inconvenient.
– The vaccines were developed far too quickly. I’d rather wait and see what side effects emerge.
– I don’t have a doctor or medical insurance to pay for this.
– They are getting rid of the mask rules in my state, so I think this pandemic is on the way out.
– I’m old enough to remember problems with polio vaccines and infants with thalidomide birth defects.

With Covid death rates going down, why should I bother?

Overcoming these objections is not easy but possible, making this group part of what public health officials would call the “persuadable” group.

What About The Views Of Covid Anti-Vaxxers?

In contrast to the “persuadable” group, there are other groups of individuals that are adamantly against taking the Covid vaccine, a group commonly known as Covid Anti-Vaxxers.

But first, we should address the effect of the Covid pandemic on cancer research and the Life Sciences sector in general.

As you might expect, Covid has been a disruptive force over the past year, with many cancer research personnel having to adjust to working from home and many labs requiring updates to their facilities, including improving their ventilation systems, installing transparent barriers between lab stations, etc.

Cancer clinicians have also bemoaned the fact that during the height of the pandemic, many patients avoided coming into healthcare facilities at all – a troubling development for those who could have benefited from early cancer detection screening – when clinical treatment is easiest, and outcomes are most promising.

As a result, it’s widely believed we’ll see a significant uptick in cancer detection in the coming months as people return to healthcare facilities for regular screenings.

Many ongoing cancer drug trials were also disrupted by the pandemic as patients hesitated to sign up or elected to withdraw out of concerns over the Covid virus.

On the other hand, there have been some rare positive developments in the Healthcare and Life Sciences industry due to the Covid pandemic:

– One notable development is that the US did not experience any widespread influenza outbreak during the past “flu season,” presumably due to increased personal hygiene, including frequent handwashing as well as widespread mask wearing during the pandemic.

– Thanks to the rapid development and early success of Covid vaccines, there is renewed interest in life science research (including disease research and prevention) by the public, government officials, tech companies, investors, and the media. (We’ll investigate the current rapid growth of the Life Sciences sector in an upcoming series of articles.)

– The FDA and other drug regulators around the world have given provisional (emergency use) approval for RNA-based vaccines from BioNTech and Moderna, validating an approach championed by the once overlooked researcher Kati Kariko. This approval of RNA-based vaccines could greatly speed up the acceptance of other RNA-based therapies that pharma companies have in development, including so-called “cancer vaccines,” which we investigate below.

Could The Success Of Covid Vaccines Point The Way To New Funding Models For Disease Research?

There’s a fourth point as well.

The widely viewed success of “Operation Warp Speed” – the government initiative to provide massive funding to private companies seeking to develop a workable Covid vaccine as fast as possible (while shielding them from potential product liability) – has demonstrated that increased government funding support (and effective management) can deliver results.

This has increased calls to reassess (and hopefully increase) the role of public funding in drug research, with some scientists pointing to the groundbreaking research of Andrew W. Lo and Roger M. Stein, who, along with financial expert John Hull, wrote the 2019 paper “Funding Long Shots” that calls for a completely new funding framework (including Wall Street backing) to provide investor-backed financial support for disease research, including the search for new cures for cancer.

In a world of what many consider highly speculative investments (including SPACs, NFTs, DogeCoins, and the like), one has to believe that increased investment in health research would be a better bet in creating long-term positive change for our society than the alternatives.

The Biden administration has also taken notice of the calls for increased government support and has beefed up funding requests for Life Sciences (including cancer research) in the Recovery Act that passed earlier this year, as well as the proposed Federal Budget and Infrastructure bill.

Hopefully, this new funding will find its way to the likes of the NCI Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) program, which is the National Cancer Institute’s own “mini Operation Warpspeed” that helps coordinate funding for the most promising or novel cancer therapies – from the earliest stages of research all the way through to human clinical trials.

Which Are The Most Common Cancers Today?

Let’s turn our attention now to the latest research in cancer diagnostics, starting with the newest cancer incidence rankings.

At 11.7% of all cancers, breast cancer is now the number one most commonly diagnosed cancer world-wide, having supplanted the incidence of lung cancer (11.4%) – a drop that’s possibly linked to long-running anti-smoking campaigns. The next most common cancer diagnoses on a worldwide basis are colorectal (10%), prostate (7.3%), and stomach cancer (5.6%). In the US, the 2020 rankings are similar, except prostate cancer diagnoses outnumber those of colorectal cancer.

What about long-term trends?

Oncoheroes Biosciences And Children’s Cancer Research Fund Working Together For A World Without Childhood Cancer

Children’s Cancer Research Fund

Oncoheroes Biosciences announces the investment of Children’s Cancer Research Fund, a childhood cancer non-profit with a 40 year track record.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Childhood cancer is still the first cause of death by disease among children in the U.S. Despite this, there are only five drugs specifically designed and approved for pediatric cancer to treat 12 types and multiple subtypes of childhood cancer. Due to insufficient specific therapies for children with cancer, pediatric oncologists are forced to adjust adult cancer treatments for them.

In 40 years Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) has contributed $213 million to research, education and awareness, and quality-of-life programs for childhood cancer families. Oncoheroes Biosciences is thrilled to announce an investment from CCRF.
“We are excited to support the vital work Oncoheroes is doing to accelerate new therapy options for children and adolescents with cancer,” stated Daniel Gumnit, CEO of the Children’s Cancer Research Fund. “It’s part of our organization’s commitment to making a real and meaningful impact for families who are battling cancer.”

Children’s Cancer Research Fund has worked closely with doctors and scientists to fund innovative research that has led to better treatments for kids battling cancer. CCRF’s mission is to remove the roadblocks that stand in the way of research breakthroughs, and they have a track record of success—from new drug trials for children with brain tumors and osteosarcoma to improvements in blood and marrow transplantation. CCRF’s success lies in their core values of innovation, impact and connection. CCRF develops strong relationships with the country’s top researchers and stay attuned to the ever-changing landscape of medical research.

“We are honored that a childhood cancer foundation with four decades of history has decided to join Oncoheroes. Thank you, Children’s Cancer Research Fund, for your trust. When we launched Oncoheroes, we wanted to involve the non-profit sector to help us bridge the valley of death in childhood cancer drug development. We are excited to see that this is happening and that together, we will accelerate the approval of new drugs for children and adolescents with cancer,” explained Ricardo Garcia, co-founder, and CEO of Oncoheroes Biosciences.
