WHO: Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2018

WHO: Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2018
https://www.who.int/substance_abuse/publications/global_alcohol_report/gsr_2018/en

Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) released their 2018 “Global status report on alcohol and health,” a study that is conducted every four years. This comprehensive study found that in 2016 about 3 million deaths per year worldwide (or approximately 5.3 percent of all deaths) are due to “harmful use of alcohol,” which is a decrease from their 2012 finding of 5.9 percent and that over “three-quarters of these deaths were among men.” WHO also found that about 5.1 percent of the overall disease and injury burden worldwide can be attributed to alcohol. In addition to its findings, this report “gives detailed information on the consumption of alcohol in populations” and describes at the national level what countries are doing to further reduce alcohol’s negative effects. Readers interested in learning more may download a PDF of the full 450-page report, which was edited by Vladimir Poznyak and Dag Rekve. WHO also provides their press release, fact sheets, and an infographic which summarizes the report’s key findings. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

i2Brain: The Visual Information Manager

i2Brain: The Visual Information Manager
http://i2brain.com/

i2Brain: The Visual Information Manager. A lot of information can be understood more easily in the form of a diagram than as a text. i2Brain helps you. i2Brain is a new type of software for visualizing information and its structure. Helps: 1) You solve problems more effectively; 2) You increase your creativity; 3) Your meetings and brainstorming sessions are more efficient; 4) You can understanding and explain complex material more quickly; and 5) You simplify and optimize your communication and waste less time. You can use i2Brain to: a) solve problems; b) collect information (brainstorm); c) visualize your “to-do” lists; d) plan a project; e) prepare reports, essays, seminars and articles; f) overcome the limitations of MindMapping®; g) learn multi-faceted information more easily (here’s an example using “Romeo and Juliet”); h) sort information visually, thereby helping you and others to understand it better. Here’s an innovative way of viewing history; i) communicate complex material; j) show and work on non-linear information in a form befitting its nature; and k) visualize your Skype contacts. i2Brain isn’t just another “MindMapping®” program. It is multi-dimensional. It visualizes your thoughts and plans in depth. Literally. What does multi-dimensional mean? Click here to see a short movie which describes this main argument for i2Brain. When you are planning a project, each activity has a priority. “Priority” is therefore a “dimension”. An activity has a “status” (working, finished, tested etc.). So “Status” is also a dimension. And so on. You can define up to 15 dimensions. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

It’s about accomplishing the most important tasks in the most efficient amount of time, so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy.

LLRX> Guide to Privacy Resources 2019

LLRX> Guide to Privacy Resources 2019
https://www.llrx.com/2018/10/guide-to-privacy-resources-2019/

This guide by Marcus P. Zillman is a comprehensive listing of free privacy applications, tools and services that users may implement across multiple devices. These applications are from a range of sources that include small and large tech companies as well as subject matter specific websites, consumer industry groups and organizations. The focus of this article is on leveraging the latest technology and information that allows users to: (1) identify privacy issues and (2) implement privacy protections specific to their requirements, that span email, phone calls, chats, text messages, web browsing, computer drives and files, networks, collaboration spaces, and your photos. It is critical that users remain vigilant regarding privacy issues and to understand that it is increasingly the responsibility of the user/customer to actively identify and exercise controls (and to follow those controls applied in the workplace) to limit, block or otherwise curtail access to your organization’s network, as well as to your personal data, email, social media, personal identifying information (PII), search histories, IM/chats, e-commerce transactions, and identity management actions. Each of us must take the time to determine the risks that are present in our use of the web, and proactively implement services to add requisite layers of defense against malicious actors as well as organizations that are aggregating our data outside the scope of our knowledge. The uses of aggregated data include: marketing and sales, spam, phishing, and to undermine legitimate communications between individuals, teams, groups, organizations. The resources in this guide are in a sense a pick-list from which you may choose based on whether online privacy is a matter that is important enough to spend time exploring your options from among the many tools available. In addition, you must determine whether you will accept a certain level of inconvenience to implement security protections that may in some measure slow down the speed of your internet connection.
