K-pop group’s record breaking album conquers three continents

K-pop group BTS' record-breaking album conquers three continents

  • And, for their third world tour this past spring, within hours of going on sale, BTS sold out US arenas — another first for a K-pop act — prompting them to add more shows on both coasts, in New Jersey and California.
  • “We really started at the bottom,” said BTS member 23-year-old Kim Namjoon, who writes a lot of the groups songs and as the group’s only English speaker, acts as the face of the group outside of Asia.
  • This new album expresses a “brighter blast of EDM and softer hip-hop than their past albums” and is “aimed at a wider audience,” said Tamar Herman, who covers K-pop for Billboard.com, but she added that it still remains to be seen if that strategy will pay off in the long term….
  • “Paired with their increasingly impressive music releases, BTS gave off a more accessible vibe than many other K-pop acts, whose communication with fans is more often than not directed through limited moments curated by their labels,” she added.
  • And as for what many fans really want to know, Kim said his “ideal girl,” would be able to “talk for more than an hour about anything, family, music life, whether we can communicate and have something in common.”

BTS is breaking records worldwide.

Ex-mental health nurse: ‘I couldn’t get back up again’

  • Aimee Leigh Smith worked as a mental health nurse for 17 years.
  • She told BBC 5 live that the “stress and burnout” was taking its toll on her family life and her mental health.
  • BBC 5 live have found that NHS mental health staff taking long-term sick leave because of their own mental health issues has risen by 24% in the past five years.
  • Aimee Leigh said: “The managers are burnt out, the staff are burnt out.
  • “Mental health workers are absolutely taking on what their patients are experiencing, and starting to exhibit the same kinds of behaviours.

Aimee Leigh Smith was a mental health nurse for 17 years. She left the NHS after the “stress and burnout” became too much.

NHS Confederation

  • A “radical reform” of mental health services is needed to develop a workforce to meet people’s needs in the future, according to a new report by the Centre for Mental Health on behalf of the Mental Health Network, which is part of the NHS Confederation.
  • The future of the mental health workforce makes recommendations including ensuring that all GPs should have significant and wide-ranging mental health training, and that mental health professionals should be given the time and training to consult with GPs and other public service staff to help them to respond to more…
  • Sean Duggan, chief executive of the Mental Health Network, which is part of the NHS Confederation, said: – – “Those consulted felt that the skills of those working in primary care need to reflect the work they do: that if one in three GP appointments relates to a mental health…
  • The future mental health workforce will need to be skilled in coproducing services with those who use them; in educating and supporting GPs, teachers and hospital staff; and in engaging with communities.
  • Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, Director of Nursing and Deputy Director for Education and Quality at Health Education England, said: – – “Health Education England very much welcomes this report and is looking forward to working with partners across the system on both recommendations from this insightful report, as well as our…

Rare White Giraffes Cause a Stir in Kenya

TIL - i'm a skin disease that leaves animals looking greyish-yellow

  • Conservationists who hurried to the site managed to capture what is believed to be the first known video footage of white giraffes, said Abdullahi H. Ali, who founded Hirola and has been working to conserve the critically endangered hirola antelope in the eastern part of the country.
  • The white giraffes displayed the characteristics of a genetic condition known as leucism, which inhibits pigmentation in skin cells, Dr. Ali said.
  • According to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation , the animals are extinct in at least seven countries in Africa and can live up to 25 years in the wild.
  • Dr. Ali said his team would like to follow and monitor the white giraffes seen in Kenya to document their life spans.
  • Dr. Ali said a white giraffe was also seen in January 2016 in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania .

A conservancy captured video footage of the mother and child after a villager tipped off rangers.

Trispecific broadly neutralizing HIV antibodies mediate potent SHIV protection in macaques

  • The development of an effective AIDS vaccine has been challenging due to viral genetic diversity and the difficulty in generating broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs).
  • Here, we engineered trispecific antibodies (Abs) that allow a single molecule to interact with three independent HIV-1 envelope determinants: 1) the CD4 binding site, 2) the membrane proximal external region (MPER) and 3) the V1V2 glycan site.
  • Trispecific Abs exhibited higher potency and breadth than any previously described single bnAb, showed pharmacokinetics similar to human bnAbs, and conferred complete immunity against a mixture of SHIVs in non-human primates (NHP) in contrast to single bnAbs.
  • Trispecific Abs thus constitute a platform to engage multiple therapeutic targets through a single protein, and could be applicable for diverse diseases, including infections, cancer and autoimmunity.
