Our results show limited or no potential for estrogenicity in humans, and question reports of measurable BPA in human serum. In other words, breast cancer from BPA is, in the real world, all but impossible. The second signal moment USA Todays health writer misses isthe recent publication in the journal Breast Cancer Research of a letter by Antonia Calafat, the renowned Centers for Disease Control expert on biomonitoring. The letter warns about researchers misreading high BPA levels in human blood serum due to contamination of the samples something that has been widely noted in the BPA literature but occluded from the news reporting on the chemical. Whats notable about the Calafat letter is that some of the countrys top environmental scientists have signed on to it including the Silent Spring Institutes expert on endocrine disruption Ruthann Rudel, and even Shanna Swan, who ignited fears about the effects of phthalates on fetal development. The letter both confirms, independently, the EPA-study noted above and, importantly, suggests a sea change in attitudes to BPA from the environmental health constituency. USA Today either isnt aware of or completely ignores a mass of recent research into BPA that directly bears on its article. But this has been a hallmark of the media coverage of the chemical and not just from this reporter or newspaper: Why go to researchers at the CDC, EPA or FDA when you can get a scary quote from an activist group, or keep quoting the same scientists over and over again without noting that their work cant be replicated or is contradicted by the work of the regulatory agencies? Get a stock quote from an industry group providing the other side and you have balance but not insight. There is a third factor, which really shows the baleful state of health reporting on BPA and at USA Today. Right now the the National Toxicology Program and the FDA are conducting studies on BPA and carcinogenesis.
Ives Galarcep: Two years after Mexican reign supposedly began, it is the USA wearing CONCACAF’s crown
team hit its stride this summer, eventually taking control of the qualifying group while Mexicos struggles continued. The capper for Howard and the USA was the latest 2-0 victory over El Tri, which came last month. Fridays win versus Jamaica didn’t just help the USA clinch first place in the group on a night Mexico needed a dream bicycle kick from Raul Jimenez just to take fourth place, and have a chance to qualify for the World Cup via a playoff. The U.S. win also marked the Americans’ fifth qualifying shutout in a row for a perfect 5-0 Hex at home. For me, and for Brad (Guzan) and the rest of the boys in the back, that stat means more than anything, Howard said. Without that foundation you cant move forward, and weve set the bar real high. I dont know if its done before, but it feels real good and its tough to do. The U.S. teams outstanding run through the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, coupled with its dominant run to win the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, has left little doubt which is the best team in CONCACAF. After having to hear for a while how Mexico was king, you can’t really blame Howard and the USA if they want it made clear just which team is on top now. WHAT ROSTER CHANGES WILL MEAN TO LINEUP With Tim Howard, Landon Donovan, Jermaine Jones and Matt Besler sent home after Fridays win versus Jamaica, Jurgen Klinsmann will have several changes to make to the lineup that takes on Panama on Tuesday. Some of the changes have already been laid out, with Klinsmann making it clear he wants Brad Guzan and Clarence Goodson to get games against Panama. That leaves two other spots up for grabs. Graham Zusi looks like the easy pick to replace Donovan in the starting lineup, while Kyle Beckerman should ease into the slot left open by Jones departure.
USA, Mother Of Economic Ills
A minute later, Torres looked to set up Avila from the left side of the box by laying off a short pass to the midfielder who was positioned inside the arc. Avila squared up to goal and got off a shot on frame that Williams was able to collect. VIDEO: Chivas USA vs. New Zealand Mens National Team postgame reactions Chivas carried over their momentum to the beginning of the second half and had a golden look at taking the initial lead when New Zealand was called for a hand ball in the box in the 53rd minute. Torres lined up to take the penalty kick but could not capitalized on the opportunity, as he drove his shot over the crossbar to keep the match locked at zero. In the 61st minute, Melia again came up with a big save to maintain the clean sheet. The keeper dove to his right from his line to turn away Fallons header from behind the short area after getting on the end of a cross from the left side by Tony Lochhead. Head Coach Jose Luis Real brought on a trio of forwards to enter the friendly at the same time to give the Rojiblancos a different look up top and continued to generate chances in the attacking third. With Matthew Fondy attacking as the lone striker and Julio Morales and Tristan Bowen creating plays on the left and right wing, respectively, the Goats possessed the ball well throughout the second half. Neither the home side nor the All Whites, however, could tally the game-winner and the friendly ended locked in a scoreless tie. Chivas USA will be off from League competition next weekend and will return to face Real Salt Lake in their final road match of the season on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Rio Tinto Stadium. The Western Conference game will mark the third and final meeting of the series and will be televised beginning at 6 p.m. (PT) in English on KDOC-TV and in Spanish on KWHY Super 22.
India in particular was badly affected by the exit of such funds with the Indian rupee (INR) almost touching the INR 70 level to the US dollar ($) at that time. Matters however eased at least as far as the developing world was concerned when Fed. Governor Ben S. Bernanke announced last month that QE would continue due to weak labour data. That not only stopped the flight of capital from emerging economies, but probably induced their return as well. As a result the INR which hit new lows of nearly INR 70 to the $, has since strengthened, closer to the INR 60 levels, due to reconfirmation by the Fed. that QE would continue. However Subbarao was not there to enjoy the change in fortune of the INR, having had to depart from the RBI, coinciding with the lows that the INR had had hit at that time, probably under a cloud, but due to no fault of his. So, the USA has been responsible for three global economic crises thus far experienced by the world in the last nine decades, two, which were of a greater dimension, while the third, from a relative perspective, had a lesser effect on the rest of the world. The first was the Great Depression of 1929, followed 79 years later by the global financial crisis which precipitated into a Great Recession, while the third and the last were fears that the Fed. would unwind its QE programme, the effects of which were felt in emerging economies such as India and Sri Lanka, particularly in the second and third quarters of the current year, made worse by the fact that those countries run huge current account deficits in their balance of payments (BoP).
