Lupus: persevering through medical reality

Lupus1As a single mother of one, Maria Cotton-Herring is a regular 39-year-old African-American woman who has achieved distinction with establishing a career and graduating with a degree in Business Administration from Mississippi Valley State University. Medical issues began to arise when she experienced extreme fatigue and constant headaches, which she presented in her mind as a level of normalcy. With these constant abnormalities, it naturally succumbs to an extensive amount of examinations that gave way to a medical discovery a year later. When the physician unveiled the lupus diagnosis to Maria, she knew her entire life would change forever.

Lupus is a universal autoimmune disease that attacks healthy tissues in the body. Normally, our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body against pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and germs. It is characterized by the presence of autoantibodies that are directed against a person’s own proteins. Some common symptoms of lupus are extreme fatigue (tiredness), headaches, painful or swollen joints, muscle pain, fever, anorexia, weight loss, anemia, swelling in feet, legs, hands, and/or around eyes, skin rash, hair loss, sun/light sensitivity, and abnormal blood clotting. The disease consists of flares and remissions. There is currently no cure for lupus, but there are many treatment options with FDA medications such as Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and corticosteroids.

Approximately 1.5 million Americans have lupus with 16,000 new cases reported across the country annually. The Lupus Foundation of America signifies that 90 percent of individuals diagnosed with the disease are women between the ages of 15 to 44. Women of color are two to three times more likely to develop lupus than Caucasians. Deaths attributed to lupus have increased over a 20-year period, particularly among African-American women ages 45-64, according to a report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in May 2002.

Today, Maria is a strong warrior and advocate for the disease. Every year, she celebrates Lupus Awareness Month by participating in the Lupus Walk at Harty Park in Greenville, Mississippi sponsored by the Ladies of Distinction and serves as a guest speaker at Newer New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Cleveland, Mississippi, educating and enlightening the community about the disease while uncovering her current experience living with lupus. This intelligent, courageous, and inspirational woman is my oldest sister who brought light into her struggle of this disease and encourages my family and me to continue to pray for her and stay in the fight.

I highly encourage the community, especially the African-American community, to execute a checkup with your primary care physician every year. I want to insure that your health is most important. We have a tendency to avoid seeing our primary care physician for anything that involves improving our body or exploring what is going on with our body. Understanding health as the infinite reflection of self and well-being of the mind, body, and soul influence the advancement of collaborative efforts of educational information to the family and the community.

Nigeria Loses Over N127 Billion Annually Through Cybercrime

car priva

Abuja — The Federal Government has said that the estimated annual cost of cybercrime to Nigeria is 0.08 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Products (GDP), which represents about N127 billion.

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj-Gen. Babagana Munguno (rtd), stated this on Monday during the inauguration of the Cybercrime Advisory Council at the Office of NSA (ONSA), Abuja.

Munguno, who is the Chairman of the 31-member Council, lamented that the cost of the crime to the nation is quite significant, saying that the “activities of hackers and cyber criminals in recent times have threatened government presence, economic activities and security of Nigerians and vital infrastructure connected to the internet”.

He said: “The 2014 Annual report of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), shows that, between year 2013 and 2014, fraud on e-payment platform of the Nigerian banking sector increased by 183 per cent. Also, a report published in 2014 by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, UK, estimated the annual cost of cybercrime to Nigeria at about 0.08 per cent of our GDP, representing about N127 billion.

“Global tracking of cyber-attacks indicate that Nigeria is among countries with high cases of software piracy, intellectual property theft and malware attacks. The situation is a serious challenge to our resolve to take advantage of the enormous opportunities that Internet brings, while balancing and managing its associated risks.”
According to him, the situation was made possible due to lack of awareness of cyber-security and poor enforcement of guidelines and minimum standards for security of government websites, particularly those hosting sensitive databases of Nigerians.

The NSA, emphasised the need to take serious action to protect our national cyberspace as a national security requirement.

Munguno added that the importance of serious action to protect the nation’s cyberspace, increased tremendously with growth in number of Nigerians connected to the internet, from less than a million in 2003 to over 80 million in November 2015.

He warned that “any serious attack or interference to the operation of Nigerian cyberspace will have negative impact on national economy as well as on public health and safety”, adding that “our national cyberspace has become a critical information infrastructure and protecting it, is a matter of importance”.

Munguno listed some of the common cyber-crimes in Nigeria to include: computer virus and malware infections, identity theft and privacy invasion, fraudulent electronic transaction, and theft of intellectual property.

CIA is investing in firms that specialize in sifting through social media posts

57102a2bc46188fc418b45de

The Central Intelligence Agency’s venture capital arm is investing in companies that develop artificial intelligence to sift through enormous numbers of social media postings and decipher patterns, according to a report.
A document obtained by The Intercept indicates that In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm, has made unpublicized investments in 38 companies, many of which are startups specializing in analyzing and extracting useful patterns from large amounts of data from social media.
Social media offers a trove of valuable information for intelligence agencies, but separating the signal from the noise is a monumental task.

“ISIL’s tweets and other social media messages publicizing their activities often produce information that, especially in the aggregate, provides real intelligence value,” CIA second-in-command David Cohen said in a speech at Cornell University in September.

Dataminr, PATHAR and Geofeedia and are among the startups listed in the report, and the products that all three of the companies provide are tools that help peer through an otherwise unwieldy volume of data.

Dataminr’s specialty is picking out trends on Twitter by using a stream of data it gets from the social media platform’s API, or application program interface. News organizations, law enforcement agencies and hedge funds are examples of clients who use the service to stay in the loop about relevant events in real time.

PATHAR’s flagship service, Dunami, is used to by clients, including the FBI, to map out networks of relations between people on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find centers of influence.

Geofeedia automatically monitors geotagged social media posts for the purpose of monitoring breaking news events, and even markets its services to help law enforcement predict violent protests.

“During the Baltimore riots, or Ferguson, you could see a drop [in sentiment],” Lee Guthman, head of business development at Geofeedia, told Inverse, adding that a drop in sentiment on social media could reliably predict the violent riots those events.

All of these firms already have deals with the federal government, and the contracts are publicly viewable, thanks to transparency laws. Dataminr’s $254,990 contract was awarded by the Department of Homeland Security, Geofeedia has earned $126,800 from the Department of Justice, and PATHAR has deals totaling $410,118 from both of those agencies.

Professor bullied as a boy at a Rochford school writes book to help other children Proud – Patricia Matthews with a copy of her son’s book that is aimed at helping children who have been bullied The book- Egghead 2 hrs ago / Kristina Drake Share: 1 comment Want more local news stories like these via email? Your email address Sign up A PROFESSOR has described how he was relentlessly bullied through his school years in a new book to help children overcome the problems he faced. Michael Lacey-Freeman, now 52, has written an 80-page educational book called Egghead describing his experience of being picked on. He says the aim of the book is to get a clear message across: “If you are a victim of bullying, tell your family. Don’t keep it to yourself, and don’t believe what the bullies say. They don’t know you.” Mr Lacey-Freeman was bullied while attending Holt Farm Junior and Infant School in Rochford, where he was called “Egghead” due to the shape of his head. But he has turned the nasty name around and used it as the title of his book. The story is set in the early 1970s. It is about a young boy who is constantly bullied at school from the age of seven, both mentally and physically. School for this boy is a question of survival – it is about getting through the day. Patricia Matthews, Michael’s mum, said the book is called Egghead because that is the nick name Michael was given when he was bullied. She says he was bullied due to having a misshapen head because he was born with a different bone structure. The 74-year-old, who lives in Rochford Garden Way, said: “He wants to help the other kids. He went through so much. I’m very proud of him.” Things finally got better for Mr Lacey-Freeman when his teacher suspected something was wrong and convinced him to tell his family. He is now living in Italy and teaching English as well as writing. He explained: “The story is mostly true. I should know, because that young boy was me. “When you are very young, you tend to believe that what others say about you is true. You don’t question it and you have little or no defence. Because of the constant taunts of my peers, I believed that I was worthless, a failure, a freak. I believed that I was unacceptable. “Because of this, at first I kept it all to myself. I didn’t think I could tell my family – then they would also think that I was worthless. I suffered by myself. I tried to deal with the bullying by making myself as small as possible. I would sit by the window, looking out, waiting for the school day to end.” Mr Lacey-Freeman said he didn’t want to criticise the school. He added: “It was a good school with excellent teachers. In fact one of my teachers noticed this small boy sitting by the window, and convinced me to tell my family about the bullying. Once my mother knew, bless her heart, things got a little better. I was no longer alone, and I felt stronger.” The author added: “If even only one child connects with the story and feels less alone, then I will be happy.” The book has been very successful so far and sold out on Amazon but is available online at Waterstones and eurobooks.co.uk for £8.50.
