Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

Tuscaloosa TimesTuscaloosa Times | Tuscaloosa & International News Updates
The Tuscaloosa Times is essentially a local Tuscaloosa newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Tuscaloosa, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Tuscaloosa Times.
A new research from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Public Health has found that an abnormal heartbeat, known as atrial fibrillation, is associated with faster cognitive decline.
Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.
Study lead author Evan Thacker, Ph.D., statistician in the Department of Epidemiology, wanted to investigate whether people who had not experienced a stroke had cognitive decline, or memory and thinking problems, more quickly after being diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Stroke has previously been found to increase cognitive decline.
"We found that age-related declines in average cognitive test scores did occur faster after diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, even after accounting for other factors that can hasten cognitive decline," Thacker said.
"This means that people with atrial fibrillation may, on average, reach a state of significant cognitive impairment or dementia at earlier ages than people without atrial fibrillation," he added.
Thacker and his team tracked participants in the Cardiovascular Health Study, about 5,000 people age 65 and older, with 100-point memory and thinking tests every year for an average of seven years. ...
