Inspired by kafka: ian mcewan writes brexit novel

Inspired by franz kafka’s famous payment "the transformation," british success author ian mcewan (71) has written a book about the brexit chaos in great britain.

The novel "the cockroach" is due to be published on 27 june. Will be published in german on november, diogenes verlag (zurich) announced. The novel is about the transformation of a man named jim sams, who was ignored or hated in his earlier life, but is now suddenly the most powerful man in great britain. He sees it as his mission to put the will of the people into practice and is determined to let nothing and no one stop him.

Mcewan was quoted as saying, "when parliament is closed so that the government cannot be challenged at a critical moment, when ministers lie shamelessly as the soviet leaders once did, when brexiteers in high places virtually beg for the catastrophe of a no-deal – then a writer must ask himself what he can do. There is only one answer to this: write."Mcewan’s novel "machines like me" about artificial intelligence was published only this spring.

Against alzheimer: a doctor detoxifies the brain

Against alzheimer: a doctor detoxifies the brain

Dr. Dr. Gosbert weth is a specialist in internal medicine, clinical geriatrics and pain therapy in bad kissingen, germany. He has done research on brain perfusion both in biochemistry and at the uniklinik wurzburg, developing an early diagnostic procedure and a drug against alzheimer’s disease. Now he has published his research in the book "morbus alzheimer: a disease that loses its fright" published. In an interview, he presents his findings.

You have done intensive research on alzheimer’s disease. In your book, you say that the disease is one of the greatest challenges to health policy. Why?
Gosbert weth: the biggest social problem at the moment is alzheimer’s disease. The number of people with dementia is expected to double from 1.2 million today to more than two million in the next ten to 20 years.

Is this trend related to the demographic development, i.E. An aging population in germany??
Yes and no. The disease is on the rise. Among 80-year-olds today, an average of 40 percent are affected by dementia. In a study of 575 centenarians under professor franke in wurzburg in 1980, less than three percent of the centenarians had alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s and dementia were not as prevalent 30 years ago as we know them today.

Elections in mozambique as a yardstick for peace in the country

elections in mozambique as a yardstick for peace in the country

People in southeast african mozambique have chosen their new government amid heightened security measures.

The elections are seen as extremely important for peace in the state with rich natural gas reserves, as the country’s long-enemyed major parties only officially ended their years-long conflict a few weeks ago. The start of voting was initially calm and led to queues at many polling stations, said the head of the EU election observation mission. After polling stations closed, payment began in most places this evening; first results expected friday.

Elections were held for a new president, a parliament and provincial parliaments. The vote is seen as an indicator of how robust peace is in the country. It is the first test of public opinion since the ruling party frelimo and the former rebel group and current opposition party renamo signed a final peace agreement in august. They had been fighting each other for 15 years in a bloody civil war that ended in 1992. Violence has flared up again in the past few years.
