Diagnostic Skin Scanner Observ Offers Early Detection

A recent study published in Allure magazine reveals that scientists now know that skin cancer is specifically caused by mutated melanocyte skin cells — clinical diagnostic devices like Observ could potentially be the key to early detection and treatment. Learn more at www.observ-diagnostic.com

Penticton, Canada - October 20, 2017 /PressCable/ —

According to a new study in Allure magazine, scientists have pinpointed one of the specific identifiers of skin cancer – an abundance of melanocytes in the skin, activated by dangerous ultraviolet light rays emitted by the sun. The activation of melanocytes by the sun’s UV rays causes the melanin in the skin to mutate, which gives sunbathers the tan they so desire, however, it’s not without potentially harmful effects. Scientists have recently discovered that this mutation is what causes skin cells to be susceptible to the development of a tumour, so the bottom line is that sun-damaged skin is far more susceptible to malignant melanoma than healthy, SPF-treated skin.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way for people to tell whether sun damage is lurking below the surface of the skin, because in most cases, damaged skin looks normal from the outside. Rather, it is the cellular damage that appears underneath the dermis that reveals the damage, but there are few ways in which the everyday sunbather can know whether they are at a greater risk.

Enter the Observ Diagnostic device.

Observ is a revolutionary portable, diagnostic skin scanner that uses trueUV nonharmful ultraviolet rays to see beyond the surface of the skin. This harmless, diluted version of UV rays allows clinicians to peer beneath the dermis and reveal underlying damage. Then, this damage can be visually demonstrated to clients via digital representation in a convenient app. Finally, this imaging can be used to map clients’ progress, tracking the results of clinical treatment from session to session.

Coupled with these new scientific findings about the potential cellular predisposition for skin cancer, the Observ technology could be the first point of detection for serious melanoma. And as everybody knows, when it comes to skin cancers and other dangerous underlying conditions, early detection is key for effective treatment.

Tesla secures land in Shanghai for first factory outside US

Oct 18, 2018

BEIJING — Electric auto brand Tesla Inc. said it signed an agreement Wednesday to secure land in Shanghai for its first factory outside the United States, pushing ahead with development despite mounting U.S.-Chinese trade tensions. Tesla, based on Palo Alto, California, announced plans for the Shanghai factory in July after the Chinese government said it would end restrictions on full foreign ownership of electric vehicle makers to speed up industry development. Those plans have gone ahead despite tariff hikes by Washington and Beijing on billions of dollars of each other's goods in a dispute over Chinese technology policy. U.S. imports...

Shanghai airport automates check-in with facial recognition

Oct 18, 2018

SHANGHAI — It's now possible to check in automatically at Shanghai's Hongqiao airport using facial recognition technology, part of an ambitious rollout of facial recognition systems in China that has raised privacy concerns as Beijing pushes to become a global leader in the field. Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport unveiled self-service kiosks for flight and baggage check-in, security clearance and boarding powered by facial recognition technology, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China. Similar efforts are underway at airports in Beijing and Nanyang city, in central China's Henan province. Many airports in China already use facial recognition to help speed...

China trade surplus with US widens to record $34.1B

Oct 18, 2018

BEIJING — China's trade surplus with the United States widened to a record $34.1 billion in September as exports to the American market rose by 13 percent over a year earlier despite a worsening tariff war. Exports to the United States rose to $46.7 billion, down from August's 13.4 percent growth, customs data showed Friday. Imports of American goods increased 9 percent to $12.6 billion, down from 11.1 percent. Chinese exports to the United States have at least temporarily defied forecasts they would weaken after being hit by punitive tariffs of up to 25 percent in a fight over American...

Losses on Wall Street ripple through Asia; stocks slump

Oct 18, 2018

SINGAPORE — Asian markets were broadly lower on Thursday after Wall Street slumped on a heavy selling of technology and internet stocks. Japan's benchmark fell by an unusually wide margin of 3.9 percent and China's main index lost 4.3 percent. Markets in Hong Kong, South Korea, Australia and Southeast Asia recorded similar declines. Investors are wary of possible further U.S. interest rate hikes. That will raise the cost of corporate borrowing and could drag on economic growth. The U.S. Federal Reserve recently raised short-term interest rates for the third time this year, with one more expected before the year ends....

China tech stocks Lenovo, ZTE tumble after chip hack report

Oct 18, 2018

HONG KONG — Chinese tech stocks Lenovo Group and ZTE Corp. tumbled in Hong Kong on Friday following a news report Chinese spies might have used chips supplied by another company to hack into U.S. computer systems. Lenovo shares closed down 15.1 percent while ZTE lost 11 percent. Bloomberg News cited unidentified U.S. officials as saying malicious chips were inserted into equipment supplied by Super Micro Computer Inc. to American companies and government agencies. Lenovo, with headquarters in Beijing and Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is the biggest global manufacturer of personal computers and has a growing smartphone brand. "Super...
