    that BCG is not only able to modify the existing autoimmunity of type 1 diabetics but also to stimulate some regrowth of beta cells However it is an extremely small study the significant improvements demonstrated were only transient and no inference can be drawn from these outcomes that the treated patients would be able to produce enough insulin to metabolize a meal and sustain normal non fasting blood sugar levels Faustman seems to recognize the limited implications of the study noting at the conclusion that even modest levels of remaining c peptide activity are beneficial in the reduced incidence of retinopathy and nephropathy as well as the avoidance of hypoglycemia 1 2 Faustman plans phase II studies to begin with a significantly larger group of patients this Fall with results available by Fall 2019 Strangely her research group excuses its slow progress so far by noting the unavailability of BCG in the United States 3 though since it can be easily imported by a scientific research group from around the world where it is readily available this explanation is difficult to understand 1 D L Faustman et al Proof of Concept Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of BCG for the Treatment

    result the great majority of innocent defendants remain undetected The rate of such errors is often described as a u2018dark figure u2019 u201d n But by applying statistical models derived from the study of medicine and mortality the authors assert that u201cit possible to use data on death row exonerations to estimate the overall rate of false conviction among death sentences u201d Two experts in biostatistics Chen Hu of the American College of Radiology and Edward H Kennedy of the University of Pennsylvania crunched the data with that goal in mind n u201cThis study provides the first rigorous estimate of the rate of conviction of innocent criminal defendants in any context u201d said Bruce Levin a Columbia University professor who is a leading authority on statistics and the law It could add fuel to the slowly rising misgivings of Americans about the practice and flaws of capital punishment in the U S A recent Pew Research survey found that 37 of U S adults oppose the death penalty for convicted murderers up from 31 in 2011 and 18 in 1996 Since 2007 six states have abolished the ultimate sanction according to the Death Penalty Information Center though a recent attempt to repeal it in New Hampshire failed after the state legislature deadlocked n To calculate the rate of wrongful convictions the new study applied an analytical framework from the world of medical statistics to a set of data comprising all prisoners sentenced to death between 1976 and 2004 Strap on your thinking caps because this gets a bit topsy turvy for us non statisticians n u201cSurvival analysis u201d is the mechanism that Gross and his colleagues employed In a medical context this is a method for estimating the likelihood that patients who contract a certain disease or injury will survive Variables like the treatment method or the amount of time lost before treatment can be fed into the analysis to squeeze more information from the data n An analyst who wants to know how likely a man with Lyme disease is to die of the infection arranges the variables to isolate the number of fatal cases Gross and company turned the analysis on its head the fatal event they were looking for was not death but exoneration Their overall population was the number of prisoners originally u201cinfected u201d if you will with death sentences and the slice they were trying to find was the number of patients likely to pass away into freedom n It gets trickier The likelihood of an innocent prisoner being exonerated depends very much on whether the government is actively trying to kill him As the authors of the study observed u201cDeath sentences represent less than one tenth of 1 of prison sentences in the United States but they accounted for about 12 of known exonerations of innocent defendants u201d This u201cextraordinary exoneration rate u201d for prisoners facing execution u2014more than 130 to 1 compared to the background population of prisoners u2014is evidence of the reality that u201cfar more attention and resources are devoted to death penalty cases than to other criminal prosecutions before and after conviction u201d n But a large proportion more than one third of death row inmates have their sentences reduced at some point to life in prison And when that happens typically the u201cattention and resources u201d dry up as lawyers and investigators shift their focus to other prisoners on death row Something similar happens in the cases of prisoners who die by suicide or natural cases while waiting on death row The authors believe that the true rate of wrongful capital convictions must include those prisoners who leave the intense scrutiny of the capital appeals process before their potential innocence is revealed n To model that Gross and his associates dial up the so called u201cKaplan Meier estimator u201d at which point the math gets chewier I can say from my experience covering capital punishment in the U S that the authors bring a deep understanding of the labyrinthine system to their model But I can also say that scholars have been using sophisticated statistical modeling to analyze this topic for at least half a century and for every conclusion there are sure to be detractors with their own set of numbers n Each quest for mathematical clarity only serves to underline the troubling paradox at the heart of the modern death penalty We want the option of execution every poll confirms this even as the percentages in favor of capital punishment appear to be trending downward But we also want certainty Countless hours and mountains of money have been spent trying to perfect the process and they have given us only the confusion and waste of the seemingly endless appeals process n At some point we will realize that when it comes to capital punishment the most important thing to know is how much we can never know for certain n Von Drehle editor at large for TIME is the author of

More WHO Only 5 of Your Daily Calories Should Come From Sugar Updated 3 42 p m ET n Menu labeling is supposed to help us make more informed food choices but new research shows consumers consistently underestimate the calories in Chipotle burritos n In a new study published in the journal Public Health Nutrition researchers surveyed 326 Chipotle customers about what they ordered and how many calories they estimated were in their order They found that on average the customers underestimated the calories by 21 For example on average the customers guessed their burritos were about 630 calories when they were closer to 900 n Chipotle calorie counts for burritos can range from 350 to 970 and that s confusing for customers placing orders A burrito with just beans is the lowest calorie option and a burrito with all the stuffings like sour cream meat and guacamole has the highest amount When the researchers explained this to the customers they became much more accurate at guessing the calories in their burritos suggesting more transparency is helpful n Since the Affordable Care Act is requiring restaurant chains with over 20 locations to provide calorie information the researchers conclude that offering customers more information about what ingredients are higher in calories is the best way for them to make informed eating decisions n Chipotle says the requirement is a bit harder for them to stick to than other fast food restaurants since there are 60 000 ways to put an order together The degree to which people may misestimate calories is really a product of a menu labeling law that doesn u2019t work so well for a restaurant like ours says Chris Arnold Chipotle s communications director Putting calorie counts on things is super easy when it u2019s a packaged product and it u2019s made exactly the same every time or it u2019s a restaurant where you order a number one and always get exactly the same thing n To make the ranges Chipotle takes the simplest option u2014tortilla and a bean u2014and lists the highest calorie option for that order For instance the burrito range starts at a tortilla and pinto beans instead of the lower calorie black beans u201cWe recognize it u2019s not ideal but there u2019s not really a better way to do it when you can put it together in so many different ways says Arnold Chipotle also sells more burrito bowls than it does burritos n If customers visit Chipotle online they can use a nutrition calculator to add up all their toppings n section name Health slug health url http time com health tag name diet

three way deal to swap millions of other customers with Charter and create a new spinoff company in the Midwest The deal is designed to ensure that Comcast stays below a total national cable market share of 30 n If the merger and divestiture plan is approved by federal regulators it would make Charter the second largest cable company in the country Comcast the nation s largest broadband company has pledged to abide by the 30 cable market share cap as it tries to win regulatory approval of the Time Warner Cable deal n The D C Circuit Court of Appeals has twice thrown out an FCC cap limiting cable ownership to 30 of the pay TV market the most recent decision was in 2009 Although Comcast isn t bound by the cap it voluntarily pledged to jettison more than three million subscribers to help

Liberty Media made a run at Time Warner Cable late last year but was outbid by Comcast n Charter will pay 7 3 billion for the new subscribers as part of the deal according to Reuters which values the

  • Re: Cloning stem cells
    as an important mission in promoting human health and values Somehow these eggs only become precious and a matter of concern for medical ethicists when people contemplate deliberately using them to help themselves or other people and especially when they are used to help people suffering from disease A positivist view of medical ethics would value anything done to alleviate human suffering or promote human health rather than fixate on what parts of the body are sacred and cannot be used for human purposes and which are not such as blood which in many countries is freely sold The other idea frequently discussed in this context that paying someone a price for donating eggs should be forbidden since it can be coercive relies on a false idea of what constitutes coercing someone to do something Coercion can properly be said to occur only if you impose on people a situation which limits their range of options so that only the one you want can be selected In that case people are put under duress by your will and your action against them But if you just offer them a great inducement to do something they would not spontaneously do you
