Highest Rates. Guadeloupe has the highest prostate cancer rate worldwide (about 1135.6 in 100,000 males aged 55 and above), followed by Martinique at 844.4 in 100,000 males (age 55 and above). Barbados and Puerto Rico has prostate cancer rates of 700 and 598.1 in 100,000 males respectively. United States of America has the 7th highest prostate cancer rate at 443.4 in 100,000 males aged 55 and older.
North America. As a region, North America's average prostate cancer rate (age 55 and above) is the highest at 436.23 per 100,000 males (age 55 and above) compared to other regions. Europe is a close second with an average incidence rate at 383.79 per 100,000 males (age 55 and above). Asia has the lowest average incidence rate at 74 per 100,000 males (age 55 and above).
Prostate Cancer. Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate — a small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Globally, prostate cancer is the second most commonly occurring cancer in men (after lung cancer) and the fourth most commonly occurring cancer overall, with close to 1.3 million new cases diagnosed in 2018.
Survival Rate. If the prostate cancer has not yet spread to other parts of the body, the 5-year survival rate for most men is nearly 100%. If the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, the 5-year survival rate dips to 30%.
Risk Factors. Knowledge of the causes of prostate cancer remains incomplete. Primary risk factors may include obesity, lack of exercise, age (over 50) and diet (diet high in processed meat, red meat, milk products or low in certain vegetables).
Note: The cancer rate listed below is the age-standardized rate per 100,000 males.
My favorite cat videos out on Youtube for training your cats. I particularly liked the video where the owner toilet-trained the cats. Even though these are not natural cat behaviors, but well these are domestic cats living among people, what's adapted is also what's natural.
This is a calendar of the major events for enterprise emerging technologies (IoT, AI, blockchain, smart cities, robotics, industry 4.0) for 2019.
In 2019, Asia is becoming a tech event hotspot - 50% of the major shows for enterprise emerging technologies will be in Asia.
In fact, 8 of 10 world's top-attended shows in enterprise emerging tech are Asia-located events - 5 of which are in China.
Some of the largest events, the Hannover Messe, Mobile World Congress, China International Internet of Things Exhibition and Japan's IREX, are must-attends for anyone covering emerging tech.
On 10th April 2019, scientists revealed the first ever image of a black hole. This is an important moment as scientists have actually never managed to "see" an actual black hole in the past. So this image is a visual proof that black hole exists. Below is the captured image of the black hole. So, in this article, we will explain the whats and hows that has gone into this scientific breakthrough.
A black hole is an object in our Universe, just like our Sun and our planet Earth. However, a black hole possesses a gravity so strong that nothing in its surroundings can escape - not even light. Because it cannot be easily seen and everything in its surroundings gets drawn into it is conveniently called a black hole.
The size of black holes can range from a few times larger than our Sun to millions or billions of times larger than our Sun. If the black hole is extremely large, we call it a supermassive black hole.
The image of the black hole captured is a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy known as M87 or Messier 87. A galaxy is a group of stars (like our Sun), planets (like Earth), gas, dust and rocks that are bound together by gravity.
Ongoing stuff - Here's my RAW list of compilation of online coding resources for kids. In no particular order at the moment. I will find time to properly review them. IF i do review, I will arrange these sites by suitabel age groups, such as 5 - 8 or 9 - 12. Meanwhile, see if they are helpful for you.

How many Subway outlets are there in the world? There are about 45,000 Subway outlets worldwide in more than 100 countries, with more than half (25,785) being located in the United States.
Subway is an American privately held fast food restaurant franchise that primarily sells submarine sandwiches and salads. A submarine sandwich is the name given in the United States to a type of sandwich that consists of a length of bread or roll split crosswise and filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, vegetables, and condiments.
Subway started as Pete's Super Submarines in Bridgeport, CT, in 1965 and since then, has transformed into one of the fastest-growing franchises in the world. Subway has approximately 45,000 stores located in more than 100 countries as of June 2017. More than half of the stores are located in the United States. It is the largest single-brand restaurant chain, and the largest restaurant operator, in the world.
As part of my daily tasks, I am tracking major forums for emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine/Deep Learning, Blockchain, Smart Cities, Wearables, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Robotics, Cybersecurity and others.
Here's my compilation of related events, exhibitions and conferences globally in these categories for 2019, ranked by visitorship. These are the major global events for emerging technologies. Combined, the top 10 events receive more than 1 million visitors.
With the exception of Hannover Messe and Mobile World Congress as European events. the remaining eight tech shows are all located in Asia. Note: The visitorship data is obtained from 2018/2017 data sources (refer to references below).
Men aged 35 to 54. Lithuania ranked the highest for prostate cancer rate in Europe in 2018 at 76.6 per 100,000 males (ages 35 to 54), followed by the Ireland and Norway at 74.8 and 36.9 respectively per 100,000 males (ages 35 to 54), according to the analysis by International Agency for Research on Cancer (I.A.R.C.) of World Health Organization (W.H.O.).
