Male Contraceptives To Hit Pharmaceutical Markets Thus Year

Male Contraceptives To Hit Pharmaceutical Markets Thus Year

A team of scientists said Wednesday they had developed a male oral contraceptive that was 99 percent effective in mice and didn’t cause observable side effects, with the drug expected to enter human trials by the end of this year.

The findings will be presented at the American Chemical Society’s spring meeting, and mark a key step towards expanding birth control options — as well as responsibilities — for men.

Ever since the female birth control pill was first approved in the 1960s, researchers have been interested in a male equivalent, Md Abdullah Al Noman, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota who will present the work, told AFP.

“Multiple studies showed that men are interested in sharing the responsibility of birth control with their partners,” he said — but until now, there have been only two effective options available: condoms or vasectomies.

Vasectomy reversal surgery is expensive and not always successful.

The female pill uses hormones to disrupt the menstrual cycle, and historic efforts to develop a male equivalent targeted the male sex hormone testosterone.

The problem with this approach, however, was that it caused side effects such as weight gain, depression and increased levels of cholesterol known as low-density lipoprotein, which increases heart disease risks.

The female pill also carries side effects, including blood-clotting risks — but since women face becoming pregnant in the absence of contraception, the risk calculation differs.

5 Best Destinations to Honeymoon in October

If you’re in search of the perfect destination for your October honeymoon, you’re in luck! There are tons of quality options to choose from during this autumn month, whether you want to relax on the beach, immerse yourself in wildlife, or explore a romantic city.

For October destination ideas and travel tips, we turned to travel expert John Spence and his team of destination specialists at Scott Dunn USA. His first piece of advice: don’t wait until the last minute to book your fall honeymoon. “I would start planning as soon as possible,” Spence advises. “It costs the same whether you plan now or later, but by planning now you’ll get your first choice of accommodations, whereas you’ll likely have far fewer options later as places fill up.”

Maldives

If the Maldives isn’t on the top of your honeymoon wish list, it’s about to be. October is a great time to see whale sharks and manta rays, which makes for a fun excursion. Couples should stay at Anantara Kihavah Maldives for a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon experience. The resort offers a special honeymoon package that includes daily breakfast and dinner, champagne, unique dining experiences, and a romantic “Slumber Guru Ritual.”

One of the most sought-after African honeymoon combinations is Tanzania and Kenya, and there’s no better time to visit and view wildlife than in the dry season. “I would recommend Tanzania and Kenya for a classic big game honeymoon safari,” says Spence. “The Great Migration is still taking place in East Africa in October, so it’s a great time for viewing, and the lodges there are some of the most romantic.”

“South Africa is our number one destination for honeymooners this year, and for good reason,” shares Andres Arrigara, Africa travel specialist at Scott Dunn. “In October the temperatures are mild and rainfall is low, but really, it’s hard to beat some time in Cape Town and the Winelands any time of year.”

For a honeymoon with an ideal mixture of adventure and luxury, start at Table Mountain to take in the panoramic views of the Western Cape, then head down to the waterfront to treat yourselves to artisan crafts and clothing made by South African creatives. To top off the trip, couples can drive to the Winelands or go explore a multitude of national parks and wildlife preserves, where the odds of seeing all of the Big Five (lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and African buffalo) are very high.

A perfect destination for couples who want a Caribbean experience without actually leaving the country is St. Thomas. Since it’s part of the U.S. Virgin Islands, no passport is required! Stay at the luxury Ritz Carlton St. Thomas, which recently went under a $100 million renovation. Couples can book a sunset sail on the resort’s very own catamaran, the Lady Lindsey. Pro tip: Make sure to book a Club Level room for exclusive access to a private beach area and the Club Lounge with unlimited meals, snacks, and beverages throughout the day.

Morocco

“Morocco is wonderful in autumn and such a romantic destination,” says Rachael Mendizabal, Europe travel specialist at Scott Dunn. Rooftop dinners surrounded by candles, couples massages in marble-clad spas, and nights in a glamping tent under starry skies make for the most picturesque honeymoon memories. Be sure to book Morocco well in advance, as the best rooms and riads sell out. For a luxury stay, consider a riad at Royal Mansour in Marrakech.

Aliko Dangote Reemerges As World’s 74th Richest Billionaire

Aliko Dangote Reemerges As World’s 74th Richest Billionaire

As the world’s richest billionaires’ ranking continues to shift, with the most recent offset being the emergence of Indian billionaire Gautam Adani as the world’s second-richest man ahead of Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos, some billionaires like Aliko Dangote have seen their wealth ranking improve in recent weeks after losing out several weeks ago.

Dangote, whose net worth has declined by $275 million since the start of the year, dropped out of the top 80 richest billionaires list more than a week ago, as his wealth fell below the $19-billion mark for the first time since Sept. 29, 2021.

After falling out about a week ago, the billionaire, who derives the majority of his fortune from his 86-percent stake in Dangote Cement Plc, Africa’s largest cement maker, is now ranked 74th on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, a list that tracks the fortunes of the world’s 500 richest people.

Dangote is now not only the richest man in Africa, but also the richest Black man in the world.

His re-entry into the top 80 billionaires list was aided by the decline in the net worth of Indonesian billionaire Michael Hartono, Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, and Thomas Frist, a U.S. physician and businessman who is the wealthiest person in Tennessee, a landlocked state in the southeastern United States.

Dangote’s net worth has fallen from $19.1 billion at the beginning of the year to $18.8 billion at the time of writing this report. This equates to a $257-million loss in wealth for the billionaire businessman since the year began.

The drop in his net worth, which began on May 13 when he became the world’s 61st richest man after his net worth surpassed $21 billion for the first time since 2014, can be attributed to a drop in the shares of his publicly traded cement company, Dangote Cement.

Since May 13, shares in the leading cement maker have dropped 18.3 percent, from an all-time high of N300 ($0.697) to N245 ($0.5694) at the time of writing.

The drop in the company’s stock can be attributed to investors’ reaction to its half-year earnings figures, which revealed a double-digit drop in profit in the first half of 2022 due to higher energy costs and unrealized foreign exchange losses.
