    An implant shaped like a butterfly that is put in the neck offers a radical new approach for heart failure — a condition that affects a million Britons. The metal device, which is the size of a baked bean, is inserted into one of the two carotid arteries, which run on each side of the neck, connecting the heart to the brain.  The ‘wings’ of the butterfly-shaped gadget apply gentle pressure on receptors in the lining of the carotid artery. Called baroreceptors, these are highly sensitive nerve endings that regulate blood pressure and heart rate. Studies show that gently applying constant pressure to these receptors sends a signal to the brain to lower heart rate, reducing strain on the heart and, in turn, heart failure (which means the organ does not pump as efficiently as it should). Slowing the heartbeat also gives the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber) more time to fill up with oxygen-rich blood. When the heart does then contract, more blood is pumped around the body. Improving the supply of oxygen to key organs and muscles...
    U.S. officials are seeing a failure rate of up to 60% for some of Russia's precision-guided missiles being used in the assault on Ukrainian cities, according to a report on Thursday. Failures can include such mishaps as a missile failing to launch or a missile not exploding on impact. Russia's air-launched cruise missiles have failed at a rate of 20% to 60%, depending on the day, according to unnamed U.S. officials in the report. The report did not specify the cause of the high failure rates of Russian missiles in Ukraine. Air-launched cruise missiles were used in Russia's deadly attack on a military training facility in western Ukraine, near the Polish border, on March 13 that reportedly killed 35 people. BIDEN WARNS PUTIN AGAINST DIRTY WAR TACTICS Ukrainian officials also say that air-launched cruise missiles were responsible for the March 18 attack on an aircraft repair facility adjacent to the western Ukrainian city of Lviv's international airport. The airport itself was not hit in that attack. It is unclear if the airport was one of the...
    RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) — Rancho Cordova and Citrus Heights have been ranked as the cities with the “rudest” drivers in the country. City officials, however, are criticizing the study’s data.

Researchers looked at several categories of infractions – including rates of failure to stop, failure to yield, tailgating, illegal passing, improper backing, hit-and-runs, and street racing – to rank cities by rudest drivers. Not only did Rancho Cordova get hit with the worst rude driving rate (65.37 per 1,000 drivers, versus the national average of 22.65 per 1,000) in California, it also topped the nation.

    California State University students are failing or withdrawing at high rates from many courses — including chemistry, calculus, English and U.S. history — prompting renewed efforts for systemwide reform. New attention is being placed on classes that for years have shown failure or withdrawal rates of 20% or more — sometimes reaching as high as half the students. Efforts to overhaul the courses and improve teaching are now seen as a crucial way to help more students pass and graduate. For example, more than a third of Sacramento State students in some physics, economics, computer science and anthropology classes failed or left those courses. At Fresno State, the same was true in some math, chemistry, criminology and music courses. When more than 20% of students in a class receive a D, F or withdraw, that course is considered to have a high “DFW rate,” in university parlance. Generally, course rates are averaged over three years. Cal State Los Angeles, for example, reports that about 11% of all of its undergraduate classes have high fail rates. Statistics are close to...
    THE DEATH of an 11-year-old boy from a ''multi-organ failure'' in India, has sparked fears of a bird flu outbreak. The boy who caught the disease with a 60 percent fatality rate is believed to be the country's first documented case and death of the strain H5N1 of the virus. 2An 11-year-old boy is believed to be India's first case of bird fluCredit: Reuters According to a government statement, the boy was admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi on July 2 and died a few days later. The doctor who treated him told Hindustan Times: ''Initially the doctors suspected Covid-19, then influenza. ''The boy’s samples were sent to National Institute of Virology in Pune for testing. ''He was found to have bird flu and contact tracing was immediately conducted.'' The boy's family and staff who treated him have all been placed in isolation and authorities have launched contact tracing. How the boy contracted the virus remains a mystery. The Animal Husbandry Department has not found any suspected cases of bird flu in...
    The House's No. 2 Republican, Rep. Steve Scalise, pointed to the District of Columbia's uptick in crime in just the latest GOP argument against giving the capital city statehood.   'Why should the District of Columbia be granted statehood when it can't even perform basic governmental duties like protecting its residents against criminals?' Scalise asked in an anti-statehood memo his office put out, first obtained by Forbes.  The document, which also focuses on D.C.'s budget and history of crooked officials, was revealed on the eve of the second vote in the House of Representatives on statehood in less than a year.  House Minority Whip Steve Scalise sent out a memo arguing against D.C. statehood - due to the city's crime, budget and history of crooks - on the eve of the House's D.C. statehood vote, a second in under a year  A Washington, D.C.

    Most public middle and high schools in Maryland have seen a pronounced increase in fail rates throughout the time period that classrooms were closed, a report from the state’s board of education showed. The report, released Monday, includes performance metrics from mid-November 2020 until January 2021, when most of the state’s largest districts were closed for in-person instruction. The report shows that 23 of 24 (nearly 96%) Maryland public middle school districts saw an increased fail rate in every subject.

The report shows 21 out of 24 school districts had increased fail rates in math, while 19 districts saw increased fail rates in social studies.  Among middle schools, 11 school systems saw math fail rates approximately double, while 9 systems had English and social studies fail rates double, charts in the...
    The United States Army is rethinking its new gender neutral fitness standards due to the overwhelming failure rate among women, according to The Daily Telegraph UK. The Army Combat Fitness Test, a standard used to assess all soldiers, has a 65% failure rate among women compared to a 10% failure rate among men, according to The Daily Telegraph UK. Soldiers are expected to perform a sprint, a maximum deadlift, hand-release push-ups, a standing power throw, a leg tuck, drag and carry, and a two-mile run. The soldier must score at least  360 points out of 600 points in order to pass the exam, the Daily Telegraph UK reported. Women, however, have an average score of 1oo points lower than the requirements.

    Elementary and high school students are failing at greater rates because of virtual learning and schools that refuse to offer in-person learning could be in legal trouble, a school choice told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an exclusive interview. Corey DeAngelis, the director of school choice at the Reason Foundation, spoke with the DCNF’s Samantha Renck about President Donald Trump’s recent executive order on school choice, why he believes schools are being kept closed, and more. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, parents throughout the United States have sued their school districts “over [the] lack of in-person learning options” and education quality. In one case, an Arlington County parent cited the Virginia constitution as one of his key arguments. “There’s an argument to be made that this isn’t high-quality instruction as designated by the Virginia Constitution,” DeAngelis said in reference to the lawsuit. “Especially when you see the data coming out even from Arlington. The failure rate is going up this year as a result of that remote learning.” DeAngelis also discussed why he believes Trump’s recent executive order on...
