Safety Showers and Eye Wash

September 22, 2014 | by Vince Mcleod, CIH | Articles | Comments

I am one of the Safety Guys. I was not at work. I was at home. A few months back I purchased a couple gallons of muriatic acid to clean up some floor tile after a poor grouting job. I used up one and set the other jug at the side of the house away from pets and people.

A virus that shuttles a therapeutic gene into cells has strengthened the muscles, improved the motor skills, and lengthened the lifespan of mice afflicted with two neuromuscular diseases. The approach could one day help people with a range of similar disorders, from muscular dystrophy to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.

Stem cells hold great promise as a means of repairing cells in conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke or injuries of the spinal cord because they have the ability to develop into almost any cell type. Now, new research shows that stem cell therapy can also work through a mechanism other than cell replacement.

Managers’ Ten Rules for Communications

September 19, 2014 9:09 am | by Martin Seidenfeld, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

As a manager your job is to get things done through others. Your effectiveness therefore depends on your ability to communicate to those “others”—your employees. To be a good communicator, obey these rules! This is one of the hardest skills for managers to practice. Being friendly means letting your employees know that you care about them—not just as the workers on whom you depend, but as human beings.

Gene in Mice Linked to Increased Dendritic Spines – a Sign of Autism

September 18, 2014 1:25 pm | by Univ. of North Carolina School of Medicine | News | Comments

Scientists have discovered that knocking out the gene NrCAM leads to an increase of dendritic spines on excitatory pyramidal cells in the brains of mammals. Other studies have confirmed that the overabundance of dendritic spines on this type of brain cell allows for too many synaptic connections to form between neurons — a phenomenon strongly linked to autism.

British scientists say a former nurse has become the first person in the country to receive an experimental Ebola vaccine in an early trial to test its safety. The vaccine is meant to spark the immune system's production of Ebola antibodies. It does not contain any infectious material and shouldn't trigger an Ebola infection, researchers said.
