Sudden death while playing sports

Lang SonA 15-year-old male student was playing sports at school when he suddenly fainted, then his heart stopped.

Doctors at Lang Son General Hospital on October 18 informed that the teenager with a history of heart disease, when admitted to the hospital for a diagnosis of stroke, died outside the hospital.

Doctors say that exercising or playing sports too hard can cause people with heart disease to drop blood pressure, faint, and have a stroke.

A stroke, or cerebrovascular accident, is a sudden damage to part of the brain caused by a blood vessel that supplies the brain either blocked (infarction) or ruptured (hemorrhagic). Stroke is the leading cause of death and disability.

There are many causes of stroke. People with dyslipidemia (fatty blood), cardiovascular diseases, and smokers are in the highest risk group.

Patients with atrial fibrillation, heart valves, arrhythmias, congenital heart defects… the heart is not functioning properly, the blood pumping is not smooth. As a result, the heart can suddenly stop pumping blood to the brain, or a blood clot that forms from an irregular heartbeat travels to the brain, becoming trapped, causing a stroke. In particular, people with cardiovascular disease when playing strenuous sports can develop arrhythmias, heart beats very fast, causing a drop in blood pressure, fainting and possibly cardiac arrest soon after.

People with cardiovascular disease are always encouraged to exercise, choose appropriate sports and exercise. In case of non-severe heart failure, exercise is also encouraged, but it is necessary to choose exercises and exercises that are suitable for health and fitness. Avoid overexertion because of the risk of an unfortunate situation.

China transfers high-speed train to Laos capital

The first high-speed train on the China-Laos railway route was transferred to Vientiane on October 16 and handed over to the operator.

This white, red and blue painted electromotive force distributed train (EMU), designed and built in China, can run at a maximum speed of 160 km/h. The train was transferred to the Laos – China Railway Joint Venture Company, which is responsible for building and managing the high-speed railway connecting the two countries.

The train departed from Kunming city of Yunnan province, China, to the capital Vientiane under the supervision of China National Railway Corporation (CNRG).

After yesterday’s handover ceremony in Vientiane, the train will be tested before the opening day of the 1,000-kilometer Laos-China railway, which is scheduled to take place on the Lao National Day on December 2.

Trains running on the Laos-China high-speed railway are named Lancang, after the ancient name of Laos and the name of the section of the Mekong River flowing through China. The paint color on the carriages represents the national flag of Laos, and the interior also bears the symbol of daffodils, the national flower of Laos.

Each train can carry up to 720 people, the carriages have snack and beverage stalls, as well as facilities for the disabled and information services in Chinese, Lao and English.

EMU trains do not need locomotives to pull the whole train, have the advantages of fast acceleration, low noise and almost no pollution. The driving car of the EMU train is usually arranged at both ends to easily change the direction of the train.

Construction of the 414km Laos-China high-speed railway from the border town of Boten bordering Yunnan to Vientiane began in 2016, with an initial contract worth $1.2 billion awarded to CNRG. Chinese media in June 2020 reported that the value of this project had increased to 6 billion USD.

The railway is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to connect Kunming to Singapore on a 5,500-kilometer Trans-Asian Railway.

Norway suspects archery killer half-converted

Norwegian police say the suspect who killed five people with a bow and arrow may have mental problems and did not actually convert to Islam.

Regional Police Chief Per Thomas Omholt said today that authorities increasingly believe Espen Andersen Brathen, who admitted to using a bow and arrow to kill five people and injure three others in the middle of the week, is mentally ill.

The investigation also showed that the 37-year-old suspect was not too serious about his decision to convert to Islam.

“This person does not follow or practice the traditions prevalent in this culture and religion,” Omholt said.

The site Nettavisen previously published a video Brathen shared on social media in 2017. The Danish man called himself a “warning messenger” and claimed to be a Muslim.

The prosecution confirmed that Brathen was transferred to the health authorities on the evening of October 14. The suspect’s lawyer said the client needs to undergo a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which can take several months.

The suspect is under house arrest in the hospital. In addition to Brathen’s mental health issue, police will continue to investigate other theories about the motive, including “anger, revenge, impulsivity, jihad, illness or provocation”. Omholt revealed that the suspect admitted to murder but did not feel guilty.

The head of Norway’s intelligence agency, Hans Sverre Sjovold, said Brathen had been under the eye of the counter-terrorism agency, but did not disclose why. He said the suspect had been hospitalized several times.

“This could be an act of terrorism, but it’s important that we continue to investigate and determine the suspect’s motive,” Sjovold said.

It is likely that Brathen, if found guilty, will only receive a 21-year prison sentence, because this is the highest sentence in Norway, after the country abolished the life sentence in 1971. The same sentence applies to Anders Breivik, the killer who murdered 77 people at a summer camp on the Norwegian island of Utoeya in 2011.

‘Culture’ ignores Facebook employees

Before Frances Haugen, some Facebook employees also spoke out about how the social network worked, but most failed and left in silence.

Earlier this year, when Frances Haugen was downloading thousands of pages of internal Facebook documents, another employee also submitted his resignation because there was no hope after many attempts to change the company. That person is Brian Waismeyer.

Frances Haugen testifies before the US Senate on October 5. Photo: Reuters

Like Haugen, Waismeyer is a member of Facebook’s equity control team. He expressed his displeasure on Workplace – where company employees often voice their opinions – through a farewell post. In it, he said Facebook has caused “particular difficulties” for people with jobs like him. He stressed the pressure was “to the point of hindering progress and incinerating those who struggled with it”.

Washington Post Collected Waismeyer’s content and leaked comments in the article, as well as the opinions of many former employees, and drew in common: Facebook is obsessed with growth, unwilling to implement systemic reform knowing full well how harmful they are, and ready to respond to political powers.

Interviewed former Facebook employees describe their “suffering process” at the world’s largest social network: from initial optimism that they could play a role in changing Facebook, to disappointment in what was seen inside the company, and finally to resigning because the attempt failed. A few chose to disclose it to the media, to lawmakers or release “sensitive” material, but they appear to have been isolated after that.

On Workplace, where about 60,000 Facebook employees are active, it’s often a place to “vent” frustration at work. They talk about being dismayed at the belief that they are on the front lines of protecting users from online hate and hurt, or just sharing years of dedicated internal projects that have been banned by management. reason aside.

The social network is currently facing an increasing number of complaints. This could put the company on the brink of danger: possibly under investigation by the US and regulators around the world. Observers say that a controversial company for 17 years like Facebook needs to be regulated to limit divisive and harmful content on the platform.

Some see Haugen’s testimony and the series of documents she shared with reporters and lawmakers as a step toward that goal. “I’m glad this document got to where so many people wanted it. It’s a way of bringing the voices of former employees to Congress and legislators to check disinformation in Facebook’s political ads.” , says Yael Eisenstat, a former Facebook executive.

“The culling of anecdotes from former employees doesn’t tell the story of how change is happening at Facebook. Our team has great experts who make the platform better.” , Joe Osborne, a spokesman for Facebook, said after the report of Washington Post. “Projects always go through rigorous reviews and debates, so there’s no shortage of debate and conflicting opinions.”

Fears that Facebook won’t change were reinforced by Mark Zuckerberg’s reaction to Haugen’s testimony. The head of Facebook has often apologized for the company’s mistakes in the past, but this time took a much tougher stance. He said Haugen created a “false picture of the company” and insisted the company had built an experience that meets the needs of young people while keeping them safe.

Former employees who warned Facebook

Not many people dare to stand up and denounce Facebook as openly and strongly as Haugen, some choose to remain anonymous or share in moderation. The reasons they gave were to avoid retaliation and to respect colleagues who are still working. As for Waismeyer, he described his experience as accurate, but declined to comment further “out of respect for the many great people still fighting the good fight” at Facebook.

When Waismeyer stepped down in March, he was one of the longest-serving researchers in his department. In 3 years working, he has 1 year in charge of a project to help victims with pornography. However, the project was abruptly dropped during restructuring and never deployed again, much to the annoyance of the entire team.

In the Workplace post, he said that people like him face a range of pressures. “Work value is weighed against legal and potential risk, and must be considered for lost profits if users reduce interaction on the platform,” Waismeyer wrote.

One former employee, who asked not to be named, describes how finding and dealing with a serious problem in private groups or containing hateful content repeatedly ran into roadblocks from Facebook itself. “They weren’t interested in what I suggested,” the former employee said. “Each time, they record it but leave it alone and are constantly delayed.”

In November 2020, Lindsay Blackwell, a researcher on equity controls on the Facebook platform, also sent a lengthy resignation letter. Before retiring, she worked in WoW – a project to tweak the hate speech detection algorithm. However, after the team spent more than a year creating solutions to reorient these algorithms, the project was abandoned.

Several other former and Facebook employees say groups like Haugen’s are often restructured several times a year. In the end, most were disbanded, causing dissatisfaction for many people. Most then choose to win the company in silence.

“We joined Facebook because we love the company,” one person said. “We want Facebook to be better, but over time, we find ourselves that the leaders are very indifferent, or ignorant. Sometimes, they don’t prioritize work.”
