Aspirin stimulates insulin - 6 views

  • AbstractNormal subjects and patients with adult-onset diabetes received 10 gm. of aspirin in four days. On the fourth day, the fasting serum glucose and the glucose response to oral glucose were decreased in both groups. These changes were associated with increased levels of serum insulin and pancreatic glucagon, although the glucagon responses to oral glucose were unchanged. In the diabetic patients, aspirin therapy was followed by a decreased glucose response to I.V. glucose and by the appearance of an early insulin peak, which could not be demonstrated before treatment. Aspirin did not affect the I.V. glucose tolerance in normal subjects, although it did enhance the early insulin peak. A decrease in the fasting levels of free fatty acids was noted in both groups, whereas the fasting level of triglycerides decreased only in the diabetic patients. Cholesterolemia did not change in either group. A few preliminary observations indicate that, in normal subjects, ibuprofen and ketoprofen, two other presumed prostaglandin inhibitors, did not affect fasting glycemia, glucose tolerance, or the insulin response to glucose. No changes were noted after the administration of placebo.

I wonder if they did that to make sure they had a response and if there is a break point of some lower dose. I am on 325 once a day now. Been that high in the past for other things, lots of ringing in the ears when you get that high of a dose.

  • The therory is that it helps to regenerate the once turned off Beta cells, not over working the exiting ones. This is just one article I found, they are many, most of them concern Salsalate a drug used for arthritis. It works by lowering the inflammation of the liver and pancreas. Lowers IR, its a pretty interesting concept based largerly on inflammation of one muscles and organs. Originally Posted by jeanne wagner i know for heart health they recommend the baby 81 mg a day. I would think you wouldn't have a stomach lining left if you took that on a daily basis. Also just because it stimulates insulin doesn't mean it is a good thing. Sulfonyureas also overstimulate insulin and there is some thought they lead to beta cell burnout. I think it is better to find things like metformin that make you more sensitive to the insulin you naturally make.

      If you are fearful of Facebook and MySpace then you need to create an Edmodo account. Edmodo was designed specifically for educational purposes. You must be a teacher, student, or parent to gain access. It allows you all the amenities of those other social networking sites but with a lot more security/privacy.

      I've used Edmodo for 3 years now. It has revolutionized my teaching to the degree that I don't know what I'll do if I ever have to stop using it.
    • Herb Schulte
       
      That is great question. And do you need parent permission for students to use it?
    • Jordan Moody
       
      Is it free?
    • Gil Anspacher
       
      Yes, it is free and you can manage student accounts. It is only open to those you invite in and only educators may obtain an account. You may monitor and moderate all conversations, administer quizes, embed media, etc. The groups feature is very effective and you may grant access to your group to other classes. We just had 700+ students interacting in a global collaboration project, Digiteen. Students do not need an email address to use Edmodo, so under 13 is OK for CIPA. It looks much like Facebook, so kids love it and parents need some education on it as they fear it at first. Parents can get monitoring access so they may monitor their child's activity. It is a great tool to show parents how social media is used in education.

Tech Savvy Kids - 86 views

  • To the psychologists, sociologists, and generational and media experts who study them, their digital gear sets this new group (yet unnamed by any powers that be) apart, even from their tech-savvy Millennial elders. They want to be constantly connected and available in a way even their older siblings don't quite get. These differences may appear slight, but they signal an all-encompassing sensibility that some say marks the dawning of a new generation.

  • (b) Scope and Exercise of Rights.— Only the author of a work of visual art has the rights conferred by subsection (a) in that work, whether or not the author is the copyright owner. The authors of a joint work of visual art are coowners of the rights conferred by subsection (a) in that work.
  • (c) Exceptions.— (1) The modification of a work of visual art which is a result of the passage of time or the inherent nature of the materials is not a distortion, mutilation, or other modification described in subsection (a)(3)(A). (2) The modification of a work of visual art which is the result of conservation, or of the public presentation, including lighting and placement, of the work is not a destruction, distortion, mutilation, or other modification described in subsection (a)(3) unless the modification is caused by gross negligence. (3) The rights described in paragraphs (1) and (2) of subsection (a) shall not apply to any reproduction, depiction, portrayal, or other use of a work in, upon, or in any connection with any item described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of the definition of “work of visual art” in section 101, and any such reproduction, depiction, portrayal, or other use of a work is not a destruction, distortion, mutilation, or other modification described in paragraph (3) of subsection (a).

  • (2) With respect to works of visual art created before the effective date set forth in section 610(a) of the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990, but title to which has not, as of such effective date, been transferred from the author, the rights conferred by subsection (a) shall be coextensive with, and shall expire at the same time as, the rights conferred by section 106.

Such instrument shall specifically identify the work, and uses of that work, to which the waiver applies, and the waiver shall apply only to the work and uses so identified. In the case of a joint work prepared by two or more authors, a waiver of rights under this paragraph made by one such author waives such rights for all such authors.

Transfer of ownership of any copy of a work of visual art, or of a copyright or any exclusive right under a copyright, shall not constitute a waiver of the rights conferred by subsection (a). Except as may otherwise be agreed by the author in a written instrument signed by the author, a waiver of the rights conferred by subsection (a) with respect to a work of visual art shall not constitute a transfer of ownership of any copy of that work, or of ownership of a copyright or of any exclusive right under a copyright in that work.

A new report from the New America Foundation suggests a series of policies that states and public higher-education systems could adopt to do some catching up. The report, "State U Online," by Rachel Fishman, a policy analyst with the foundation, analyzes where public online-education efforts stand now and finds that access to high-quality, low-cost online courses varies widely from state to state. Those efforts fall along a continuum of organizational levels, says the report. At the low end of the spectrum, course availability, pricing, transferability of credit, and other issues are all determined at the institutional level, by colleges, departments, or individual professors, resulting in a patchwork collection of online courses that's difficult for stud

Este modelo pedagógico o estrategia didáctica ofrece una forma de aprendizaje semi presencial ya que los estudiantes pueden aprender desde sus casas mediante juegos, presentaciones, videos, podcast, ejercicios en línea, y tanto los docentes como estudiantes interactúan para resolver problemas. Esto denota un consumo menor de tiempo en el aula que se puede ocupar para otras actividades, sin más deseo compartirles las ventajas y desventajas de la Clase invertida: Ventajas: 1.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Adaptabilidad de la clase se adapta al ritmo del estudiante. 2.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Mejora significativamente el ambiente de trabajo en el aula. 3.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Incrementa la atención educativa a cada estudiantes 4.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Empata el estilo de aprendizaje de cada estudiante. 5.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Transforma la clase en un espacio de interactividad 6.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Incluye a todos los miembros de la comunidad educativa en el proceso de aprendizaje. 7.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Promueve la creatividad y el pensamiento crítico. 8.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Facilita la entrega de tareas y su revisión. 9.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Disminuye el riesgo del incumplimiento en clase. 10.&nbsp;&nbsp; Permite la reusabilidad del material propuesto. 11.&nbsp;&nbsp; Origina el ahorro de tiempo extra para el profesor. 12.&nbsp;&nbsp; Promueve la interacción social. 13.&nbsp;&nbsp; Incentiva a la resolución de problemas en clase. 14.&nbsp;&nbsp; Mejora la actitud de los estudiantes hacia la materia. 15.&nbsp;&nbsp; Incrementa el interés el interés y la motivación. 16.&nbsp;&nbsp; Genera la satisfacción de toda la comunidad educativa al estar inmersos en el proceso. 17.&nbsp;&nbsp; El feedback se genera de manera inmediata. 18.&nbsp;&nbsp; Acerca a los estudiantes al conocimiento de manera simple. 19.&nbsp;&nbsp; Evalúa no solo el resultado, si no, el proceso entero. 20.&nbsp;&nbsp; Los estudiantes son responsables de su propio aprendizaje. 21.&nbsp;&nbsp; Permite la regeneración de contenidos las veces necesarias. Desventajas 1.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Se debe estructura el plan en mejora de la metodología. 2.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Se enfoca en los recursos más que en la metodología en sí. 3.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; No toma en cuenta la brecha digital existente. 4.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Los vídeos en casa deben ser asistidos por algún representante, demandando tiempo. 5.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbs
