Join your friends, family and co-workers to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. We're all tied to heart disease and stroke in some way, and we must change that. By registering for the Heart Mini-Marathon & Walk today, you are taking the first step to save lives.

Chains of Heart (2023)

While ultimately the report concluded that more research is needed, the body of research reviewed suggested that long chain saturated fatty acids may increase the risk for development of CVD, while short- and medium-chain fatty acids may be more beneficial or neutral for the heart.

AL amyloidosis is a life-threatening disease caused by plasma cell dyscrasia and can affect multiple organs, including the heart and kidneys. Small plasma cell clones or, more rarely, B cell clones produce monoclonal free light chains (FLC) that misfold and aggregate, forming insoluble amyloid fibrils, which are deposited in body tissue.1 The accumulation of amyloid deposits leads to tissue damage and organ dysfunction,2 while amyloid FLC can also cause cytotoxicity.3

Daisy Chain, 2021, is a giant string of plastic daisies threaded together by their stems to form a mega-ornamental wreath. An age-old amusement, daisy chains were stylized as garlands to be worn as symbols of devotion and eternal love. At a towering twelve feet high, Daisy Chain dangles from wall to floor. Assembled from found and composed elements, garden hoses for stems, plastic funnels for pistils, and cut vinyl for petals, its materiality alludes to its horticulture origins.

SHAPIRO: After hours of turning up scrap metal in a field in Warwickshire, England, Clarke's metal detector beeped again. So he dug in the rain until he was elbow-deep in the ground and pulled out a large gold necklace with a heart-shaped pendant.

CHANG: The necklace's chain is made up of 75 gold links and weighs more than half a pound. The heart-shaped pendant is about two inches across, and it's decorated with an intertwined red-and-white Tudor rose and a pomegranate symbolizing King Henry VIII's marriage to Katherine.

When it comes to supply chains, risk can appear in many forms. From a pandemic that highlighted the supply risks in our stretched global networks, to cyber security breaches across our systems, and the current challenges that inflation brings to our business, the need for a risk resilient supply chain is clear to everybody.

Sarah also believes cybersecurity is one of the biggest risks to supply chain sighting a Gartner prediction that by 2025, 35% of organizations worldwide will have experienced attacks on their software supply chains, a three-fold increase from 2021.

This was put into perspective by Sarah Barnes-Humphrey, who believes supply chains should be the driver of these conversations within any organization as they produced more than 80% of the greenhouse gas emissions and more than 90% of the impact on air, land, water, biodiversity, and geological resources.

More than 50% of patients with heart failure present with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), and 80% of them are overweight or obese. In this study we developed an obesity associated pre-HFpEF mouse model and showed an improvement in both systolic and diastolic early dysfunction following fecal microbiome transplant (FMT). Our study suggests that the gut microbiome-derived short-chain fatty acid butyrate plays a significant role in this improvement. Cardiac RNAseq analysis showed butyrate to significantly upregulate ppm1k gene that encodes protein phosphatase 2Cm (PP2Cm) which dephosphorylates and activates branched-chain α-keto acid dehydrogenase (BCKDH) enzyme, and in turn increases the catabolism of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Following both FMT and butyrate treatment, the level of inactive p-BCKDH in the heart was reduced. These findings show that gut microbiome modulation can alleviate early cardiac mechanics dysfunction seen in the development of obesity associated HFpEF.

Located in the heart of Illinois' largest concentration of natural lakes, Chain O' Lakes State Park is a water-oriented recreation area with outstanding opportunities for boaters, anglers and skiers.

The park borders three natural lakes - Grass, Marie and Nippersink - and the Fox River that connects the other seven lakes (Bluff, Fox, Pistakee, Channel, Petite, Catherine and Redhead) that make up the Chain. In addition, the park contains a 44-acre lake within its boundaries. With nearly 6,500 acres of water and 488 miles of shoreline, Chain O' Lakes State Park is the heart of a water wonderland.

AL amyloidosis (amyloid light chain or primary amyloidosis) is one type of amyloidosis. Amyloidosis (am-uh-loy-doh-sis) is a rare disorder that happens when plasma cells in your bone marrow change or mutate. These calls make abnormal proteins that become twisted clumps of misshaped proteins that gather on your organs and tissues. In AL amyloidosis, the proteins that mutate are light chain proteins. Light chain proteins are pieces of an infection-fighting antibody made by plasma cells in your bone marrow. AL amyloidosis typically affects your heart and/or your kidneys, but it may affect your stomach, intestine, nerves and skin. Healthcare providers may treat amyloidosis with chemotherapy and/or bone marrow or stem cell transplantation. If diagnosed and treated early on, AL amyloidosis may become a chronic disease. But left untreated, it leads to life-threatening conditions that may be fatal.

In AL amyloidosis, plasma cells making antibodies made of heavy and light protein chains make too many light protein chains. The light chains misfold and clump together, making amyloid fibrils that end up in your organs, where they can cause significant and life-threatening damage.

The United States and European Union are committed to addressing the climate crisis, accelerating the global clean energy economy, and building resilient, secure, and diversified clean energy supply chains. Both parties recognize that these objectives are at the heart of the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act and the EU Green Deal Industrial Plan. By building and strengthening our own clean energy industrial bases and investing in the industries of the future, the United States and the European Union will create good-paying jobs and spark virtuous cycles of innovation that drive down costs for clean energy technologies in the global market, making those technologies more affordable and advancing a global just energy transition that will leave no community behind.

The EU-U.S. Task Force on the Inflation Reduction Act has productively deepened our partnership on these common goals, and has taken practical steps forward on identified challenges to align our approaches on strengthening and securing supply chains, manufacturing, and innovation on both sides of the Atlantic.

We will deepen our cooperation on diversifying critical mineral and battery supply chains, recognizing the substantial opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic to build out these supply chains in a strong, secure, and resilient manner. To that end, we intend to immediately begin negotiations on a targeted critical minerals agreement for the purpose of enabling relevant critical minerals extracted or processed in the European Union to count toward requirements for clean vehicles in the Section 30D clean vehicle tax credit of the Inflation Reduction Act. This kind of agreement would further our shared goals of boosting our mineral production and processing and expanding access to sources of critical minerals that are sustainable, trusted, and free of labor abuses. Cooperation is also necessary to reduce unwanted strategic dependencies in these supply chains, and to ensure that they are diversified and developed with trusted partners. 041b061a72
