A recent study shows that many Nations, are now suggesting Adults for vaccinations,mainly for the reason that , the threat of pneumococcal diseases are spreading. Pneumococcal disease can be dangerous, and sometimes fatal, in people with certain chronic medical conditions. This may be true even when the chronic medical condition is well controlled with medication and/or lifestyle management. Pneumococcal vaccination needs to be used more consistently to reduce the risk of pneumococcal infection in these individuals, says the study. The Centers for disease control and prevention recommends physicians to advise Adult community for the Vaccinations at their second childhood.

A research team lead by by Baylor's Scott Coleman had found a new way to identify the depth of gait disability in patients with cerebral palsy. In those patients, the damage of the brain limits their arm and leg motor functions. Posture and free movement in the limbs are the major challenges faced by the physicians when treating patients with cerebral palsy. As it was difficult to support a patient's function involving movement without knowing their true depth. This study made easy to identify gait issues and may give better treatment options in the future.This was a randomized study, involving patients with and without cerebral palsy of mean age of 17 years, were assessed using three-dimensional gait analysis (GA). The goal of this novel study methodology was to aid in identifying different movement patterns that are helpful for improved treatment planning for children with cerebral palsy while also aiding in forecasting more accurate outcome. This can be used to help classify cerebral palsy based on their specific needs for the treatment. The study was based on four clinical categories as: 1) close to normal, 2) deviations mainly in the leg, 3) deviations mainly in the arm, and 4) deviations in the arm and the leg.This study was published in April 2014 edition of Clinical Biomechanics. The research, led internationally by Baylor and the Nordic researchers (Dr. Riad and Dan Lundh, from the University of Skövde), and Jacques Riad from Skaraborg Hospital in Skövde, Sweden.

Artificial Intelligence (or AI) is highly specialized with helpful sophisticated computer programs. They can for e.g. fly planes, play chess or assemble cars in controlled environments. Scientists have now made it adaptable AI programs that can learn to solve problems in real time by feed backing in many different areas.
The program is primarily designed to recreate certain aspects of children’s cognitive development.
