*Nosso filho Luiz Eduardo foi paraninfo de turma de formandos do Instituto de Artes da UFRGS, no dia de hoje. Seguem a foto e seu discurso.* *IA, ritos e alegria.* Boa tarde a todos, primeiramente uma confissão, ou melhor, duas: - antes de eu vir para cá minha mulher disse que eu estava proibido de chorar, pois a formatura não era minha. Vou tentar. Outra: nunca assisti ou participei de uma formatura, nem da minha, lá nos idos tempos das Ciências Sociais. Dito isto, desde já quero agradecer aos meus queridos alunos, que se formam nesta tarde, por esta oportunidade. Muito em breve ... mais »

A 12-Hour Window for a Healthy Weight By GRETCHEN REYNOLDS JANUARY 15, 2015 10:00 AM January 15, 2015 10:00 am 263 Comments PhotoCreditIllustration by Ben Wiseman - *This article appeared in the January 18, 2015 issue of The New York Times Magazine.* Scientists, like mothers, have long suspected that midnight snacking is inadvisable. But until a few years ago, there was little in the way of science behind those suspicions. Now, a new study shows that mice prevented from eating at all hours avoided obesity and metabolic problems — even if their diet was sometimes unhealthful./.../

Obesity control

How the brain controls fat burningJanuary 16, 2015 (Credit: Monash University) In case the “imaginary meal” approach to burning fat doesn’t work, now there’s a backup. Monash University researchers have discovered that two naturally occurring hormones stimulate neurons in the brain’s hypothalamus, causing them to send signals through the nervous system that promote the conversion of white fat into brown fat. This leads to burning off excess fat. The findings, published Thursday (Jan. 15) in the journal *Cell*, give new insights into how the brain regulates body fat, and may lead to mor... mais »

You Don’t Just Smell Through Your Nose By Debra Kelly on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 [image: 87809857] “And ever since then, when the clock strikes two, / She walks unbidden from room to room, / And the air is filled that she passes through / With a subtle, sad perfume.” —Bret Harte, “Newport Legend” In A Nutshell We tend to think that we smell with our nose, but we’ve recently found that nearly every single organ in our bodies is capable of smell. More precisely, our organs have been found to contain olfactory receptors that are keyed to react in certain ways to certain scents. When r... mais »

Metformin and cancer

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - Há 6 dias
Can we use an anti-diabetic drug to treat cancer?Metformin—a drug used to lower blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes—is able to slow the growth of cancer cells. Metformin is widely used to reduce the high blood sugar levels caused by diabetes. Recently, several studies have suggested that patients taking metformin who also develop cancer have tumors that grow more slowly than average. As clinical trials have already started to investigate if metformin is an effective anti-cancer treatment, it is important to understand how it might restrict tumor growth. Researchers have pro... mais »

One of the many cartoons published in homage to the cartoonists and journalists assassinated on Wednesday in the office of *Charlie Hebdo* showed a gravestone with the inscription “Died of Laughter.” No one is laughing these days in Paris. In fact, the massacre raises questions about laughter itself./.../
