QUICK TAKE China’s growing deadly addiction By Hannah Beech

HOW

Developed by Benjamin Hubert of U.K. design studio Layer, the app will track users’ daily carbon footprints using a Fitbit-like device that measures everything from your restaurant order to how far you walk to the lights you use at home (which it will remind you to turn off).

WHEN

Worldbeing aims to launch in
2017, with plans to link the
software to retailers, enabling
users to estimate their output in
advance. “The longer you use it
for, the more attuned it becomes
to your lifestyle,” says Hubert.

WHY

The developers hope the app will
serve as a social network in which
friends can urge one another to
fight climate change. The goal,
they say, is “empowering you to
make better decisions.”

BIG IDEA

Green piece

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, which should you buy at the grocery store, an apple or a banana? A wearable app called Worldbeing, currently in development, aims to answer that question and others that might cross an eco-conscious mind.

TO LIVE IN CHINA, HOME TO MORE THAN 300 million smokers, is to marinate in a haze of tobacco fumes. Now a new study pub­lished in the medical journal the Lancet has found that to live in China is, all too often, to die from cigarette smoke. By 2050, smoking could lead to 3 million deaths a year in China, and if rates don’t fall, at least half of Chinese males could eventually die from their nico­tine habit—what the Lancet calls a “growing epidemic of premature death.”

Although smoking is declining worldwide, two-thirds of Chinese men light up, according to the study. (A relatively small fraction of Chi­nese women smoke.) And while luxury-ciga­rette cartons are a common gift during Chinese holidays, an average pack costs little more than a dollar. Even the poorest Chinese can afford to
smoke. And why shouldn’t they? Cigarette com­panies advertise in schools and health clinics.

The Chinese government knows it has a medical crisis on its hands, even if many Chi­nese men still consider smoking an accept­able social rite. As of this summer, smoking was banned in public indoor spaces in Bei­jing, a prohibition that is not always enforced. Still, the world’s largest tobacco company, China National Tobacco Corp., which churns out more than 2.5 trillion cigarettes a year for dozens of domestic brands, is owned by none other than the Chinese government. In fact, 7% of the state’s revenue comes from tobacco. That’s an addiction that may be even harder to quit than smoking.

VERBATIM ‘Today’s Republiccfn hard-liners are angry, loud and insistent on getting their way. They are not conservatives— they are revolutionaries who all but say as much while they rail against what they call the Establishment.’

 

17, died of a brain injury three days after hurting his head in a game. Earlier this season, Bui report­edly had what his school called a mild concussion but was cleared by a doctor to resume playing.

“I don’t see how a reasonable person would argue that we should count pitches to protect the elbow but not count hits to protect the brain,” says Stefan Duma, a professor of biomedical engineering at Virginia Tech. Duma’s research has shown that football players as young as 7 have sustained head impacts at forces similar to those in a car crash.

Here’s how hit counts would work. The goal is to track every hit to the head at a certain level of force in both practices and games. That can be done by outfitting helmets with sensors. Then we need to determine how many shots a player can sustain before sitting out. There is no magic number, but a good starting point could be limiting high schoolers to 90 blows in a week exceeding 20 G’s—roughly equivalent to the whiplash from a mild fender bender. Eric Nauman, a biomedical-engineering professor at Purdue, suggests that number on the basis of the school’s brain-imaging research, which found that almost every high school player hit at this rate or greater showed evidence of brain injury, even if he didn’t have concussion symptoms.

None of the leading football organizations is ready to sign on. Dr. Mitchel Berger, a neuro­surgeon and member of the NFL’s Head, Neck and Spine Committee, says, “It’s a leap of faith to as­sume that this is going to provide us with any de­finitive information to help us right now better determine things like return to play or whether a player is susceptible to another concussion or not.”

On the college level, the NCAA’s chief medical officer, Dr. Brian Hainline, said it was researching the effectiveness of sensors “so that we can make a science-driven decision about head-impact ex­posure.” Pop Warner, which runs youth leagues across the nation, says it’s open to the idea but doesn’t believe the technology is ready.

Recognizing that the very act of playing can have lasting consequences cuts to the heart of foot­ball’s problem with traumatic brain injuries. “Foot­ball culture is resistant to counting hits, since peo­ple don’t think they’re worth counting,” says Chris Nowinski, a former college player who runs the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

The science makes it clear that they are. Last month, researchers at the Department of Veterans Affairs and Boston University said 87 of 91 brains of deceased NFL players showed signs of CTE, a devastating neurological disease believed to result from blows to the head. “There’s more than enough evidence to say we need a hit count, right now,” says Nauman. No hit-count proposal will be perfect. But neither are pitch counts. Baseball started some­where. Why can’t football do the same?              □
