A team of researchers based at five centres across Ontario have zeroed in on a microscopic abnormality in the way oxygen moves from the lungs and into the blood vessels of long COVID patients in their trial.

This abnormality could explain why these patients feel breathless and are unable to perform strenuous activities, says lead researcher Grace Parraga, Tier 1 Canada research chair in lung imaging at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.

“Those feelings of breathlessness are completely consistent with our finding that we’re not moving the oxygen as efficiently as we should,” she said.

The rover analyzed the fragments using its Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument, which uses oxygen and high heat to convert the organic carbon in the samples into carbon dioxide.

From the amount of carbon dioxide produced, the instrument calculates how much organic carbon was in the original sample and tells the exact isotope ratio, which helps scientists understand the source of the carbon, according to the statement.

Isotopes are forms of the same chemical element that differ in the number of neutrons in their cores.

A new desired timeline for the end of the Ukraine war

The war in Ukraine has brought Western leaders together in condemning Russia and applying punishing sanctions.

But as the war enters its fifth month, the economic consequences of isolating Russia are being felt in high gas prices, a major political liability.

Meanwhile, momentum in the war appears to be favoring Russia.

Reversing those parallel trends was the principal objective of this year's G7 summit.

Related: Ancient solar storm smashed Earth at the wrong part of the sun's cycle — and scientists are concerned .

Scientists initially suspected coronal mass ejection (CME) caused the freak storm — a large burp of plasma with an embedded magnetic field that is belched out from a sun spot — but they couldn’t tell if it had occurred on the Earthside or farside of the sun, according to Spaceweather.com. .

However, experts now blame a much rarer co-rotating interaction region (CIR) of the sun; these are "transition zones between slow- and fast-moving streams of solar wind," according to Spaceweather.com.

"Cannabis use is not as benign and safe as some might think," said study author Nicholas Vozoris, assistant professor and clinician investigator in the division of respirology at the department of medicine at the University of Toronto.

"Our study demonstrates that the use of this substance is associated with serious negative outcomes, specifically, ED (emergency department) visits and hospitalizations," Vozoris said in an email.

Significant risk of hospitalization

The study, published Monday in the journal BMJ Open Respiratory Research, looked at national health records data for over 30,000 Ontario, Canada, residents between the ages of 12 and 65 over a six-year period.

"Physical bodily injury was the leading cause of emergency department visits and hospitalizations among the cannabis users, with respiratory reasons coming in a close second," Vozoris said.

Marijuana smokers had higher blood and urine levels of several smoke-related toxins such as naphthalene, acrylamide and acrylonitrile than nonsmokers, a 2021 study found.

Mohammed Zubair, co-founder of fact-checking website Alt News, which debunks misinformation in the Indian media, was arrested Monday and remanded overnight in police custody, said KPS Malhotra, a deputy commissioner in Delhi's Cyber Crime Unit.

Malhotra said Zubair was arrested under two sections of the Indian Penal Code related to maintaining religious harmony.

But when he responded to the summons, police arrested him over a separate case, she said.

Kaur showed CNN a police complaint in which a Twitter user accused Zubair of insulting Hindus on the platform in 2018, in a post about the renaming of a hotel after a Hindu god.

She accused the authorities of not following proper procedure and of giving Zubair no notice.

Malhotra, the deputy commissioner, did not respond to CNN's questions about whether police had followed proper procedure during the arrest.
