    Sources: ΝΕΤ 105.8

    UN special envoy on FYROM name issue, Mathew Nimitz is expected to have a new round of negotiations with Greeces and FYROM representatives in mid August, in NY. According to reports he has invited Athens and Skopje ambassadors, Adamantio Basilakis and Nikola Dimitrof respectively to attend talks in NY, on 14, 15 August.

    UN sources said that Mathew Nimitz does not intend to hold talks on minority or language issues raised by FYROM, considering that these issues are not included in the Security Council framework. FYROM leaders must realize "dangers arising from any form of irredentism as well as the need for development of good neighbourly relations", said the State Department.

    [04] Scientists Detected Perchlorate

    Toxic Substance in Mars

    05 Αυγ 2008 08:30:00

    Sources: ΑNA, ΝΕΤ 105.8

    The "Phoenix" Mars Lander may have detected perchlorate, a potentially toxic substance used in rocket fuel, in soil samples taken from the Red Planet, NASA scientists said on Monday. The US space agency said further tests were required to confirm the presence of perchlorate in Martian dirt and rule out contamination from the spacecraft. A NASA spokeswoman declined to characterize perchlorate as detrimental to life. But perchlorate, an oxidizing substance, is known to be harmful to humans under certain circumstances and its existence in the soil could suggest that Mars is less hospitable to life than the scientists have so far believed.

    [05] Finish Research Indicates

    Fatty Fish Prevents Brain Damage

    05 Αυγ 2008 08:07:00

    Eating tuna and other fatty fish may help prevent memory loss in addition to reducing the risk of stroke, according to a Finnish study released in the US on Monday.The research conducted on a sample of 3,660 people aged 65 and older found that men and women who ate omega-3-rich fish three times or more per week had a nearly 26% lower risk of having silent brain lesions that can cause memory loss and dementia and are linked to a higher risk of stroke. Eating just one serving per week led to a 13 % reduced risk, compared to people whose diets did not include this type of fish, the researchers reported in the journal Neurology.

    Participants in the research underwent brains scans five years apart to detect the silent brain lesions and responded to questionnaire regarding nutrition habits. Professor Jyrki Virtanen of the University of Kuopio in Finland, however said fried fish for some reason did not appear to have the same benefits, "While eating tuna and other types of fish seems to help protect against memory loss and stroke, these results were not found in people who regularly ate fried fish". Omega-3 fatty acids are also found in salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, and in other foods such as walnuts
