(Best Syndication) Despite the efforts of Palestinian leaders to broker a cease fire, the Lebanese Army resumed shelling Fatah al-Islam militants in the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp on Thursday. This is a departure from the government’s expressions of willingness to seek a truce with the Fatah group.

A weekly supplement of local An-Nahar daily says that the Lebanese government is not backing down. On Thursday, Defense Minister Elias Murr told Nahar Ash-Shabab "The army will win the battle and will negotiate on the basis of the surrender of the remaining fighters."

[Best Syndication] Sony tries to up the sales of Playstation3 by announcing at least 380 new games to come out over the next year. This announcement is to help to compete with the extremely popular Nintendo Wii game console.

According to reports in gamer magazine publisher Enterbrain, a research firm NPD said that Nintendo Wii game consoles are outselling PS3 by two to one in the United States and three to one in Japan this year.

In order for Sony to compete, they intend to push for releasing more game titles. Sony discussed their goals at a shareholder meeting. Sony’s goal for the games will be 200 software titles available in traditional retail stores, and another 180 game titles that will be released through online download-only distribution. The games will be released now through next March.

[Best Syndication] Researchers from the Swedish medical university of Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University conducted a clinical study of the effects of omega-3 fatty acid supplements on Alzheimer’s patients. The study results suggest that omega-3 supplements have helped on some of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s including depression and agitation.

Researchers studied 200 patients with mild Alzheimer’s for a one year period. They assigned half to take an omega-3 supplement and the other half to take a placebo.

While there was no measurable therapeutic benefit of the omega-3 group compared to the placebo group, they did notice that some patients that have a APOE?4 gene susceptibly did benefit. The carriers of this gene showed an improvement in agitation symptoms compared to the placebo group. Those that were not carriers of the APOE?4 gene showed improvement in depression when taking the omega-3 supplement.

[Best Syndication] Google has set up google.org to achieve a number of philanthropic goals, one which includes reducing CO2 emissions. This goal has prompted investments into research on ways to improve Hybrid car technology that will get better mileage and give back electricity to the power grid.

The modified Toyota Prius showed off by Google is said to have more that 70 mpg fuel efficiency. The standard Toyota Prius uses 45 mpg. The extra electricity stored in the battery can be plugged into the power grid when it is not being driven and given back to the power grid, which they are calling vehicle-to-grid (V2G). If enough vehicles with this techonology was able to give back to the power grid, there would be less need for coal power plants.

Breast Cancer And Family Relations – Large and Small Family and History of the Disease

Breast Cancer And Family Relations – Large and Small Family and History of the Disease

X-Ray

(Best Syndication) Researchers say that current models used to predict a woman's risk of breast cancer may be flawed. They found that the probability of the breast cancer gene mutation BRCA among women with a history of breast cancer is greater when the number of older, female relatives in the family is smaller.

Jeffrey N. Weitzel, M.D., of the City of Hope, Duarte, Calif., and colleagues conducted the research. They wanted to determine if genetic risk models underestimate the BRCA gene mutation prevalence for “single-case indicators,” that is women with a limited family structure (less than two females who lived to age 45 or older in each lineage) who have early onset breast cancer and no family history of breast or ovarian cancers.
