¬† People who enjoy one glass of wine a day are less likely to be admitted to hospital than teetotallers, a new study suggests. Researchers said the finding show ‚Äúmoderate‚ÄĚ consumption of alcohol means a lower risk of hospitalisation and of suffering heart disease. The study involving Harvard University tracked more than 21,000 men and women living in Italy for six years. It found that teetotallers were 11 per cent more likely to end up being hospitalised, compared with those who drank a small amount of alcohol every day - equivalent to one 125 ml of wine - every day. Those who drank heavily were at most risk of ending up in hospital, the study, published in the journal Addiction, found. Overall, there were around 13,000 hospital admissions among participants, who had an average age of 56. Study first author Doctor Simona Costanzo, of the Mediterranean Neurological Institute, said: "We observed that a heavy consumption of alcohol is associated with a higher probability of hospitalisation, especially for cancer and alcohol-related diseases. At a glance | Alcohol units "This confirms the harmful effect of excessive alcohol drinking on the health. "On the other hand, those who drink in moderation present a lower risk of hospitalisation for all causes and for cardiovascular diseases compared to lifetime abstainers and former drinkers." Dr Ken Mukamal, Associate Professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in the US, added: "We are absolutely not saying that any teetotaler should start drinking to improve his or her health.‚ÄĚ ¬† ¬† ¬†
The debate about coal use has threatened to overshadow discussions on developing renewable and low-carbon energy at U.N. climate talks in Katowice, a city that lies in the heart of Poland's Silesia coal mining region. Delegates from nations that rely heavily on coal power have called for a "just transition" from fossil fuels to ensure the shift to cleaner energy does not hurt jobs and economies. "The issue of a 'just transition' - how you support jobs - is top of the minds of governments," Catherine McKenna, Canada's minister for environment and climate change, told Reuters.
Failure by countries to agree rules on implementing the 2015 Paris climate agreement aimed at curbing global warming would be suicidal, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Wednesday. Guterres told delegates from over 130 countries meeting in the Polish city of Katowice that they had less than three days to find the political will to reach difficult compromises, sacrifices and common ground needed for a deal. "To waste this opportunity would compromise our last best chance to stop runaway climate change.
The action is a loss for messaging company Twilio Inc. and free speech groups that had asked for more protections for text messages, saying carriers sometimes interfered. With the vote, the FCC cleared up the the regulatory status of text messages. Supporters of the measure said it strengthens the legal foundation that allows phone companies to cut off unwanted messages.
By Nina Chestney KATOWICE, Poland (Reuters) - Average world temperatures are on course to far exceed the main goal set in the 2015 Paris Agreement on limiting global warming, a study showed on Tuesday. But the overshoot by the end of this century could be less severe than expected thanks to significant efforts by some countries to combat climate change, said the report by Climate Action Tracker (CAT), a consortium of three independent European research groups. The Paris Agreement aims to restrict warming to "well below" two degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial times. ...
The Iranian-aligned Houthi movement and the Saudi-backed government of Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi were still discussing a United Nations proposal on the contested port city of Hodeidah, a lifeline for millions of Yemenis facing starvation. Hadi's premier, Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed, told reporters in the government's base in the southern port of Aden that there might not be enough time for full agreement on Hodeidah as the talks, the first in over two years, conclude on Thursday.
China‚Äôs largest music-streaming service, which is backed by Tencent Holdings Ltd., and current holders raised $1.1 billion by selling 82 million American depositary shares at $13 apiece Tuesday. Tencent Music opted to price lower after initially guiding fund managers that orders were coming in around the midpoint of the marketed range. Shares rose 6 percent to $13.80 apiece at 11:32 a.m. in New York, valuing the company at about $22.6 billion -- just below the market valuation of Spotify Technology SA, the Swedish peer that‚Äôs also an investor in the Chinese company.
Katowice (Poland) (AFP) - "Key political issues" deadlocking UN climate talks "remain unresolved", UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Wednesday after an unscheduled stop at the troubled negotiations in Poland. The fight against climate change is a "matter of life and death today," he told ministers and delegates at the 195-nation UN forum tasked with beating back the threat of global warming, barely 48 hours before the meeting in the coal town of Katowice was set to adjourn. The two-week talks are tasked with breathing life into the 2015 Paris Agreement, which vows to cap global warming at "well under" two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
Beijing appears to be easing its push on its "Made in China 2025" industrial policy, which has long irked Washington amid talks between the world's two largest economies to de-escalate trade tensions. In new guidance to local governments, it has dropped references to "Made in China 2025", an initiative intended to help China catch up with global rivals in key economic areas and promoted hard since it was unveiled in 2015. The strategy is core to China's aim to transform itself into a global superpower by 2050, and be more competitive in sectors such as robotics, aerospace and clean-energy cars.
