NASA scientists analyze Satellite Data to Map California Quake

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA scientists and engineers continue to analyze satellite data for information on fault slips and ruptures a week after two strong earthquakes struck near the city of Ridgecrest in Southern California, 

Their observations are helping local authorities assess damage and will also provide useful information to engineers for designing resilient structures that can withstand ruptures like the ones created by the latest quakes.

NASA's ARIA team produced this map of earthquake damage in Southern California from the recent temblors in July2019. The color variation from yellow to red indicates increasingly more significant surface change, or damage. (NASA/JPL-Caltech, ESA)

American Heart Association reports Low Vitamin D at Birth raises risk of Higher Blood Pressure in Kids

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – according to new research in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, vitamin D deficiency from birth to early childhood was associated with an increased risk of elevated blood pressure in later childhood and adolescence.

Researchers followed 775 children from birth to age 18 at the Boston Medical Center. Most lived in a low-income, urban area and 68% of the children were African American. Low vitamin D levels were defined as less than 11 ng/ml (nanograms per millimeter) in cord blood at birth and less than 25 ng/ml in a child’s blood during early childhood.

The study findings suggest that vitamin D screening and supplementation in pregnancy and early childhood could prevent or reduce the risk of elevated blood pressure later in life. (American Heart Association)
