Article: Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO, Will Stay On As Chairman, Tim Cook New CEO

24/08/2011

Assuming this isn’t a hoax, and there is certainly a lot of rumor and speculation about what Apple does and doesn’t do, then this is big.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

Breathing problems need better screening tools

24/08/2011

New research has confirmed that dysfunctional breathing is not purely a biochemical disorder, characterised by low levels of carbon dioxide in the blood, but that neurological and physiological processes – like the way people perceive their breathing – also play a role.

The study, funded by the Australian Osteopathic Association and published in a recent issue of the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapy, examined different screening methods to search for possible correlations between different causal influences of the syndrome.

“It showed that people can have dysfunctional breathing of just one type – a biochemical or biomechanical dysfunction, or a perception dysfunction,” said lead author Rosalba Courtney, a Sydney-based osteopath who conducted the research as part of her health sciences PhD at RMIT University. “It means that clinicians who want to evaluate [the syndrome] really have to apply a range of measures,” she said.

One of the results from Sydney-based osteopath Rosalba Courtney’s PhD research is that a range of measures need to be applied to assess breathing dysfunction. I’m looking forward to reading her article in JBMT.
