Study links abnormally high blood sugar with higher risk of death in COVID-19 patients not previously diagnosed with diabetes — ScienceDaily

New research from Wuhan, China shows that, in patients with COVID-19 but without a previous diagnosis of diabetes, abnormally high blood sugar is associated with more than double the risk of death and also an increased risk of severe complications. The study is by Dr Yang Jin, Union Hospital and Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, Hubei, China, and colleagues. The study is published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of…

Private matching for compute enabling compute on private set intersections

Matching records is one of the most basic data analysis operations. There are many cases where data needs to be aligned across some common value — whether that’s joining between two different tables in a database or across two data sets stored in a file, or matching data sets between two separate entities. For example, consider two people —  Alice and Bob —   who each have a list of contacts identified by email addresses and want to know how many…

BMW Takes Self-Driving to Level 3 Automation

In a Voluntary Safety Self-Assessment (VSSA) report filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), BMW said it plans to introduce what could become the first system on U.S. roads to qualify as “Level 3” conditional automation by SAE’s standards. By way of review, SAE Level 3 involves automated driving rather than driver support features (Levels 0, 1, and 2). Level 4 means that the system controls all aspects of the driving tasks, including when a driver doesn’t respond…

Global COVID-19 registry finds strokes associated with COVID-19 are more severe, have worse outcomes and higher mortality — ScienceDaily

Acute ischemic strokes (AIS) associated with COVID-19 are more severe, lead to worse functional outcomes and are associated with higher mortality , according to new research published yesterday in Stroke, a journal of the American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association. In “Characteristics and Outcomes in Patients with COVID-19 and Acute Ischemic Stroke: The Global COVID-19 Stroke Registry,” researchers analyzed data on patients with COVID-19 and AIS treated at 28 health care centers in 16 countries this…

Case study provides evidence of intrauterine transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from mother to infant — ScienceDaily

A baby girl in Texas — born prematurely to a mother with COVID-19 — is the strongest evidence to date that intrauterine (in the womb) transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) can occur, reports The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, the official journal of The European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer. The findings “suggest in utero transmission” of COVID-19 from an infected mother to her infant, according…

How to turn 36 seconds into $5.4 billion

PhD, engineer and carpenter Hasse Neve wants a more efficient construction process. waste time is reduced so that the work can be done better for the benefit of all parties. Credit: Ida Marie Jensen.  A team of researchers from Aarhus University have, for the first time ever, linked 40 years of productivity data from the construction industry with the actual work done. The results show that productivity in the construction industry has been declining since the 1970s. The results also…
