Warning over untested web 'cures'
 

It can be tempting to believe personal stories of miracle cures, but only by using tried and tested methods can we move forward
Dr Kieran Breen
Parkinson's Disease Society

Leading medical experts are warning patients against using untested remedies advertised on the internet which, they say, sell "false hope".
The group, backed by charity Sense About Science, says vulnerable people are being increasingly exploited by the online promotion of such treatments.
Many untested remedies are expensive and do not work, and are often based on "unreliable" evidence, the experts say.
A new guide has been published to help patients recognise bogus treatments. Sense About Science says there are now hundreds of websites offering hope to people who are desperate for a cure.
Many online adverts and chat-room conversations testify to the "incredible" benefits of new medicines and treatments, often selling the empty promise of curing the incurable, the charity says.
Some offer stem cell treatments for brain disorders for tens of thousands of pounds. Others sell cures for multiple sclerosis and cancers.
But the evidence behind the remedies is often unreliable, experts say, and patients are increasingly being exploited. Experts and patient groups want to see tighter regulation to reduce unfounded claims.
Dr Kieran Breen, director of research at the Parkinson's Disease Society, said: "It can be tempting to believe personal stories of miracle cures, but only by using tried and tested methods can we move forward and provide people with Parkinson's with the best available advice and treatments."
'Looking for hope'

Lib Dem MP Phil Willis, chairman of the Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Select Committee, said the "cruellest deception" for a patient with chronic illness was the promise of a cure based on "empty hope not evidence".
Ian Douglas, who has multiple sclerosis, agreed, saying patients with incurable conditions found hope in short supply and looked for anything that might help.
"This makes them particularly vulnerable to treatments that are supported only by anecdote and rumour," he said.
A new guide, called I've got nothing to lose by trying it, has been published by Sense About Science with the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Motor Neurone Disease Association, Alzheimer's Society and Parkinson's Disease Society. It aims to help patients tell the difference between beneficial remedies and bogus treatments. Hazel Thornton, a patient advocate who acts as a liaison between patients and healthcare providers, said the guide would help people "bring a critical eye and a questioning mind to what they read and hear".

WHAT ARE SUN SPONTS?

Sunspots are dark, planet-sized regions that appear on the "surface" of the Sun. Sunspots are "dark" because they are colder than the areas around them. A large sunspot might have a temperature of about 4,000 K (about 3,700° C or 6,700° F). This is much lower than the 5,800 K (about 5,500° C or 10,000° F) temperature of the bright photosphere that surrounds the sunspots.

Sunspots are only dark in contrast to the bright face of the Sun. If you could cut an average sunspot out of the Sun and place it in the night sky, it would be about as bright as a full moon. Sunspots have a lighter outer section called the penumbra, and a darker middle region named the umbra.

Sunspots are caused by the Sun's magnetic field welling up to the photosphere, the Sun's visible "surface". The powerful magnetic fields around sunspots produce active regions on the Sun, which often lead to solar flares and Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). The solar activity of flares and CMEs are called "solar storms".

Sunspots form over periods lasting from days to weeks, and can last for weeks or even months. The average number of spots that can be seen on the face of the Sun is not always the same, but goes up and down in a cycle. Historical records of sunspot counts show that this sunspot cycle has an average period of about eleven years.

Our Sun isn't the only star with spots. Just recently, astronomers have been able to detect "starspots" - "sunspots" on other stars.

 The Way You Face Life
Assalam-O-Alaikum!

The recent earthquake that hit Baluchistan has saddened us all. In the hours of need, we must all do whatever, small or big, we can do to help our distressed fellow beings. May Allah Almighty save us all from all calamities.
Let me begin our topic today by asking you a question. How many times have you taken up the responsibility when something went wrong? For instance, when your parents questioned you when you hit your sibling, how many among you took the responsibility instead of blaming your sibling for being first rude to you. I guess hardly few would be willing to make this confession.
We are a nation of blamers. We love to blame situations, circumstances, events for things that do not happen as desired. Unfortunately by blaming others we pose our self as helpless victims, who are too powerless to do any remedial action. If this attitude of continuously blaming others continues to go unchecked, it leads to more problems in life later. Putting blame on others stops you from taking a necessary corrective action — it gets you off the hook from acting responsibly.
The truth is that each of us is responsible for his actions. Our life changes when we change. About few years back, I was working in a software firm where I made a very close friend. We happened to be on same team and we clicked together quite well and our work efficiency was remarkable too.  However, after about a year, she got married and moved to another city. Thereafter my performance level sunk. I was saddened when she left me and I blamed my low performance level to her departure. I discussed this worrying situation with my grandfather who himself is a great achiever in life. He explained to me that our life does not change when our boss change, when our friends move away, when our company change, when your location change, when our financial standing change, when our status change...Our life change only when we change. If that change is for good, we will benefit from it and progress. If that transformation is not for good, our progress will be hindered. And now that as with years I have got more practical experience, I see how right he was…
It does not mean that for everything that goes wrong, the blame is on us. For example, some day you did not learn your class test and hence scored low. Now for one or two times, you can say ‘I wasn’t well. Hence I could not perform well’. But when such explanations become a common day routine, it means explanations are transforming into excuses for your careless behavior. And the sooner one realizes his weaknesses; quicker are his chances of “becoming responsible”.
So folks, take responsibility for all your actions. Scrutinize yourself, watch yourself. Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses. Raise out of the situation as a wiser you, put yourself together and be a winner. Because it’s the way you face life that makes the difference.
Allah Hafiz.

Ms. Amna Tariq Holy City of Makkah-Ul-Mukarrama
