Clinton’s Pneumonia diagnosis forces other candidates to make their health records public

Trump at 68 and Hillary at 70 are one of the oldest candidates contesting the US elections, this inevitably builds a pressure on both of them to make their health records public

USA, September 12, 2016 : After Clinton’s Pneumonia diagnosis was made public on Sunday in a 9/11 commemoration event the questions of the health of both the candidates is now in spotlight.

A spokesman announced late Sunday she would not be making the previously planned trip that had included fundraisers and a speech about the economy on Monday and Tuesday.

The democratic candidate’s doctor said that Hillary had complained of a prolonged cough on Friday and was diagnosed with pneumonia. Later on Sunday, She left the memorial service on Sunday looking rather distressed because of her condition.

Lisa Barack, her doctor said that,”She was put on antibiotics and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”

Her Republican opponent,Donald Trump,reacted by saying he hopes Clinton gets well soon.”I hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we’ll be seeing her in the debate,” Trump said, referring to their scheduled first face-to-face encounter on September 26.

Last year,Trump released a letter from a physician claiming he would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”which the Republicans are putting forward in stark contrast with Hillary Clinton’s concussion incident of 2012 when questioned about stamina of both the candidates. Although the doctor in Trump’s case has since acknowledged he dashed off the note in five minutes while a Trump campaign limousine waited nearby and Hillary has been given a clean chit by her doctors.

Either way, the fact that Trump at 68 and Hillary at 70 are one of the oldest candidates contesting the US elections and so the pressure is inevitably building on both of them to make their health records public. (VOA)

US Researchers Redefine Conditions that Makes a Planet Habitable

The researchers also found that planets with thin ozone layers, which have otherwise habitable surface temperatures, receive dangerous levels of UV dosages

A team of US researchers has redefined the conditions that make a Planet habitable by taking the star’s radiation and the planet’s rotation rate into account – a discovery that will help astronomers narrow down the search around life-sustaining planets.

The research team is the first to combine 3D climate modeling with atmospheric chemistry to explore the habitability of planets around M dwarf stars, which comprise about 70 per cent of the total galactic population.

Among its findings, the Northwestern team, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, NASA’s Virtual Planet Laboratory and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, discovered that only planets orbiting active stars — those that emit a lot of ultraviolet (UV) radiation — lose significant water to vaporization.

Planets around inactive, or quiet, stars are more likely to maintain life-sustaining liquid water.

The researchers also found that planets with thin ozone layers, which have otherwise habitable surface temperatures, receive dangerous levels of UV dosages, making them hazardous for complex surface life.

“It’s only in recent years that we have had the modeling tools and observational technology to address this question,” said Northwestern’s Howard Chen, the study’s first author.

“Still, there are a lot of stars and planets out there, which means there are a lot of targets,” added Daniel Horton, senior author of the study. “Our study can help limit the number of places we have to point our telescopes”.

The research was published in the Astrophysical Journal.

Horton and Chen are looking beyond our solar system to pinpoint the habitable zones within M dwarf stellar systems.

M dwarf planets have emerged as frontrunners in the search for habitable planets.

They get their name from the small, cool, dim stars around which they orbit, called M dwarfs or “red dwarfs”.

By coupling 3D climate modeling with photochemistry and atmospheric chemistry, Horton and Chen constructed a more complete picture of how a star’s UV radiation interacts with gases, including water vapor and ozone, in the planet’s atmosphere.

Instruments, such as the Hubble Space Telescope and James Webb Space Telescope, have the capability to detect water vapor and ozone on exoplanets. They just need to know where to look.

“‘Are we alone?’ is one of the biggest unanswered questions,” Chen said. “If we can predict which planets are most likely to host life, then we might get that much closer to answering it within our lifetimes.” (IANS)
