  Opioid use by American men may account for one-fifth of the decline in their participation in the U.S. labor force, according to a study by Princeton University economist Alan Krueger. “The opioid crisis and depressed labor-force participation are now intertwined in many parts of the U.S.,” Krueger, who was chief economist at the Treasury Department in the Obama administration, wrote in the study released Thursday at a Brookings Institution conference in Washington.   Krueger’s study linked county prescription rates to labor force data from the past 15 years, concluding that regional differences in prescription rates were due to variations in medical practices, not health conditions. In previous research, he found that nearly half of men in their prime worker ag

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un said he was postponing the planned missile strike near Guam, but warned he would shoot if there were still "reckless actions" from the United States, AFP quoted FOCUS as saying. Analysts believe that Kim Jong Un's comments open the way for de-escalation of the growing crisis that has been fed by the exchange of sharp replicas between the White House and Pyongyang. The DPRK state news agency said the chief had received a briefing on "Guam's firefighting plans" during an inspection of the Strategic Forces Command, responsible for the nation's nuclear weapons. Kim Jong Un adds about the United States that "if they persist in their extremely dangerous and reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula, then the DPRK will take action as it has already been announ

Russian spy plane flies over DC and New Jersey

A Russian military spy plane cruised the skies over Washington and New Jersey on Wednesday — in a perfectly legal bit of aerial reconnaissance that nonetheless appeared to be an attempt to troll President Donald Trump. A 1992 agreement known as the Treaty on Open Skies allows each country to conduct surveillance flights over the other's territory, something the U.S. and Russia have done a combined 165 times over the past 15 years, according to the State Department.   But Russia's choice of targets this go-round have a decidedly Trumpian flavor, taking the spy plane over Trump's current hometown of Washington, D.C., and past Bedminster, N.J., where the president is vacationing at one of his golf clubs, according to a flight-tracking website monitored by POLITICO. "I don't know of an

‘Breakthrough’ penny-sized nanochip pad is able to regrow organs and heal injuries

Breaking News, Current News, Health, Latest News, Mainstream Headline News, News Headlines, News Today, Science, Technology, USA, World News Today
Scientists have hailed a “breakthrough” technology capable of regrowing damaged organs and healing serious wounds with the single touch of a penny-sized pad. The new device uses nanochips to reprogramme skin cells which then generate any type of cell necessary for medical treatment. The non-invasive procedure takes less than a second and in laboratory trials was found to restore the function of badly damaged blood vessels within days. Dubbed tissue nanotransfection (TNT), the technique works by placing a small pad of nanochips over a damaged area. A small electric current then fires DNA into the skin cells, converting them into the specific building block cells of any other part of the body, such as arteries, or even organs like the heart. It promises to transform the

Marcus Hutchins: British Tech Whizz who Stopped NHS (National Health Service) Cyber Attack Arrested in US over 'Malware' Allegations A British computer whizz who helped stop a world-wide cyber-attack has been arrested in the US on suspicion of being involved in creating software that harvested banking details. Marcus Hutchins, the Devon-born tech expert also known as MalwareTech, helped foil the WannaCry "ransomware" virus that hit more than 300,000 computers. The NHS was one of the many organisations across 150 countries struck by the virus in May, before Hutchins, 23, discovered a ‘kill-switch’ that stopped it. According to US authorities, he was arrested at Las Vegas’s McCarran International Airport on Wednesday and was charged with creating banking malware. The US Departme

Wisconsin Company Celebrates and Holds Party to Implant Workers With Microchips

Well, that's one way to ensure employee loyalty... When most businesses throw a party, it's to note a milestone or a birthday. At Wisconsin's Three Square Market, also known as 32M, Tuesday's celebration revolved around implanting microchips into roughly half of its workforce.  41 of the company's 85 workers actually volunteered to take part in the "chip party" - having a microchip implanted into their bodies, which the company says will let them open doors, log into computers and buy snacks from the break room with a wave of their hand. On the upside, the employees didn't have to pay for the chips. The company picked up the tab for that. Chips have long been used as identification markers for pets who are prone to roam. But inserting them into the flesh of human beings is a new
