Statins can save lives; are they being used? — ScienceDaily

People who have coronary artery disease, stroke or peripheral artery disease often are prescribed a statin, a cholesterol-lowering drug that reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.

In a recent publication in JAMA Network Open, Mayo Clinic researchers identify trends in statin use across the U.S. among people with these diseases, as well as among those who already had a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Their data indicate that only about 60% of patients are getting the recommended therapy.

“Statins are one of the few key medical advancements in recent decades that contribute to the health of broad populations,” says Xiaoxi Yao, Ph.D., a health sciences researcher at Mayo Clinic and lead author of the study. “High cholesterol is very common, making statins relevant to many patients.”

“Dr. Yao and I were interested in understanding the trends and outcomes related to these medications over the past decade,”

Can Bay Area startup’s firefighting drones save us from catastrophe?

With flame-ravaged Bay Area communities still mired in a tough recovery after California’s worst fire season destroyed more than 1,000 Bay Area homes, a Silicon Valley startup says its artificially intelligent firefighting drones could help stop future catastrophes.

If drones from Rain Industries had been in position around the Bay Area during this August’s lightning storms, the aircraft could have contained 72% of the fires within 10 minutes of ignition, the Palo Alto firm’s co-founder and CEO Maxwell Brodie said. “This is a transformative technology,” Brodie said. “If it is us or someone else that does this, it doesn’t really matter. This will happen.”

After starting out with a smaller, six-rotor prototype drone that successfully doused small fires by dropping balls full of retardant, Rain is now testing autonomous aircraft resembling small helicopters that it says can fly preemptively during potentially hazardous wildfire conditions and use their infrared sensors to

Cyber Monday Gaming PC deal: Save $300 on this AMD Ryzen machine with an RTX 2060

If you’re on the hunt for a Cyber Monday gaming PC deal, but don’t fancy splashing out on a high-end rig with a RTX 3080, this $300 saving on a HP Omen RTX 2060 gaming PC from Best Buy might tempt you instead. While the card is on the lower end of the RTX GPU scale, it’s still fast and will let you finally turn on those ray tracing options, and it’s backed up by a great CPU. It’s also down to $949.99 this Cyber Monday. 

The 2060 is an entry-level RTX GPU, and while it might not be as flashy as the latest generation of Nvidia’s cards, it’s still the best way to enjoy ray tracing on a budget, at least until the 3060 appears next year. And you’re also getting the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, one of the best CPUs around for its price, which is more powerful

Cyber Monday 2020 iPad deals: Save $150 on iPad Pro, but beware dwindling inventory, limited options

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

We’re not going to sugarcoat it, folks: iPad deals are becoming few and far between. What few deals there were during Black Friday sales were often restricted to $50 to $70 off on models like the iPad Air, or price cuts that required curbside pickup. Now, with Cyber Monday sales starting in earnest on Nov. 30, we’re seeing some discounts return. But for now, you’ll need to be content with only getting decent price cuts if you’re already spending upwards of $1,000 on an 512GB iPad Pro. And many of those you can get come with a shipping date that’s in late December or January — far too late for Christmas.

Apple is offering a $150 gift card with purchase of eligible models, including the 2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch, right up through Cyber Monday.

If you’re hungry for the new M1 MacBooks that use Apple’s own silicon, the new MacBook Air or 13-inch MacBook Pro, you might have to wait, however. The early tests of the M1 machines show a significant

Black Friday is a distant memory, gone like tears in rain, like dust in the wind, but the deals just won’t quit.
