Weaker immune response to the Coronavirus

Three weeks after infection showed that 62.2 percent of the symptom-free group had antibodies in the blood. In the symptomatic group were 78.8 per cent. After eight weeks, a far more drastic decline of antibodies in symptom-free patients (by 81.1 percent) proved to be the sympomatischen. (62.2 percent).

In addition, were found in the case of the former, less of the immune system involved in cell proteins, suggesting a weaker immune response to the Coronavirus close.

10,000 people at the “Black Lives Matter” demo in Graz – Styria

Around 10,000 people marched on Saturday at the “Black Lives Matter” demonstration in Graz. The protest went without incident, but with far more participants than expected.

Contrary to the first statements of the organizer in the context of the meeting announcement, according to which 200, and subsequently 1,000 participants were expected, around 10,000 people accepted the invitation to this protest on Saturday afternoon.

The “Black Lives Matter” demonstration from Mariahilfer Platz via Andreas-Hofer and Tummelplatz to Freiheitsplatz went without incident. The majority of the demo participants wore mouth-nose protection, reports the Styrian police.

Bald men die more often from coronavirus life

According to a new study, bald people have a higher risk of developing severe Covid 19. What sounds crazy seems to have a hand.

“We assume that hair loss is an indicator of a severe course of the disease,” researcher Carlos Wambier summarizes the result of his study against Telegraph.co.uk.

The relationship between baldness and severe Covid-19 courses is so great, according to the dermatologist at Brown University in the US state of Rhode Island, that he recommends that baldness be recognized as a risk factor.

Wambier suggests calling him “Gabrin sign” – after Frank Gabrin, the first bald doctor who died in the United States from an infection with Sars-CoV-2.

Male hormones

Since the onset of the corona pandemic, data have shown that men are more likely than women to be more severe. So far, researchers have puzzled over the exact reason. Factors such as frequent smoking or differences in the immune system were considered.

There is growing evidence that androgens (male sex hormones such as testosterone) not only play a role in hair loss, but also in the ability of the coronavirus to attack cells. “We believe that androgens or male hormones are definitely the gateway for the virus to enter our cells,” said Wambier of the “Telegraph”.

New treatment approaches

The results of the study are confirmed by other scientific work. Studies from Spain show that up to 79 percent of all male Covid 19 patients who had to be hospitalized were bald. A similar correlation has been found in women who suffer from hair loss associated with androgens.

If the indications are condensed, the treatment could be started there. So it would be possible to suppress these hormones and thus slow the rage of the virus in the body.

According to the researchers, further studies are still necessary, but the connection is very promising. This is also suggested by an investigation from Italy: According to this, men who receive androgen-suppressing drugs for prostate cancer are four times less likely to be infected with Sars-CoV-2.

5,000 euros find reward for treasure of the Kelly Family music

In the 70s, the Kelly Family toured all over Europe in a small VW bus. The family came up with something special to save space there.

“In 1977 we were in this small VW Bulli bus, you have to imagine that, parents and the then Kelly children, nine or ten people with luggage and all the trimmings tied up on the roof – with 36 HP and 50 km / h on the freeway, “says Joey Kelly on the MDR talk show” Riverboat “. Of course, this “overloaded” travel method was not hidden from the police. To get rid of ballast quickly, the Kellys had to come up with something unusual: they quickly buried their luggage!

Buried treasure in the parking lot

“We buried the things in a parking lot in Baden-Württemberg (Germany), between Heilbronn and Stuttgart. We buried a lot of things from the Kelly Family there and designed a map with a cross on it where the place is. And had the serious intention of picking things up there again, “says Joey Kelly. But first things turn out differently and secondly than you think.

From 1974 to 1994 Joey Kelly traveled with his siblings as a street musician through the USA and above all through Europe.

The Kelly Family continued their tour without their buried treasure. “The trip went to Ireland and we wanted to buy a London bus there and then a child came and it took six months to get back to the parking lot. We couldn’t find the place where it was “said Joey. What bad luck! For Joey in particular, things seem to be of great ideal value. “There is no gold in it, it is old clothes, but it is worth it to me. And the interesting thing about this story: Shortly before we were robbed in Italy in 1977, then my father decided: Ok, we have no money, but we can make music. And that was the beginning of the Kelly Family. Just before we buried this treasure. “

Joey is now doing everything possible to get the family treasure back. So he announced a finder’s reward on the talk show: “I will immediately give 5,000 euros”.

“Minecraft Dungeons” – the “Diablo” clone for children – game tests

The brisk slaughter of an action role-playing game child-friendly and without blood? This works, as the latest “Minecraft” spinoff shows.

Basically, action role-playing games like “Diablo” or “Path of Exile” could be quite suitable for children. The gameplay is somewhat simple, the battles mostly very satisfying. All you have to do is remove all the blood, horror characters, and overly complicated status values. That’s exactly what Microsoft and Mojang did – and put the look of “Minecraft” over it.

Minecraft Dungeons is available for Xbox One, Windows PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Simple story

At first glance, the game is a flawless representative of the action RPG genre. A strong hero, procedurally generated surroundings, lots of monsters – only there are cute “Minecraft” optics instead of blood fountains as in “Diablo”. This trick makes the game ideal for children right from the start. And thanks to the co-op mode for up to four players, the parents can also join and help. This is sometimes necessary, because while normal fights are easy, some bosses can be an unexpected challenge.

The plot is probably even simpler than that of the genre colleagues: an Illager is rejected, finds an incredible source of power and wants to subjugate the blocky fantasy world. With this thin premise in mind, you slice through the nine standard levels that present classic fantasy environments – such as an enchanted forest or a scorching desert. Thanks to the Unreal Engine, these locations are beautifully staged despite the pixel look. Nice effects like light, shadow and fog ensure this. A “Minecraft” game has never looked better.

“Minecraft” has never been so beautiful

As far as the gameplay is concerned, clear cutbacks are visible compared to the complex systems of the competition. It starts with the character classes, because there are simply none. You only choose the look of your hero, all other skills are determined by artifacts and weapons. Depending on the loot found, you can leave clouds of poison in the event of a blow, trigger an explosion or even fire several arrows from your crossbow.

Various “enchants” also improve the weapons used. This means that calculating with status values ​​is a thing of the past. The disadvantage: in order to get the magic points invested back and put them in other, newer objects, you have to destroy the old pieces. Experimenting with weapons and enchants at higher levels of difficulty should also make up the long-term appeal of the game. The story can be completed in four to six hours in the first round.

All this is in order for a budget price, because the standard edition costs 19.99 euros. The also available Hero Edition for 29.99 euros also includes cosmetic extras, a chicken as a pet and two future DLC packages.


“Minecraft Dungeons” is nice fun in between, which does not offer too much depth. A particular shame: The surroundings look nice, but cannot be destroyed or changed in any way, as one might expect from “Minecraft” games. What remains is a reduced, competently made action RPG that even younger players can try.
