Desert are claimed as both the homeland of the mostly Muslim Turkic Uighur people and off and on for centuries as Chinese land With the founding of the People’s Republic of China the ruling Communist Party sent forth waves of military personnel to settle the area They have since been joined by migrants from the Chinese heartland most but not all of whom are from the ethnic Han majority; in 1949

him killedThat like much else remains unclear But from wherever you stand the murder feels like a grisly message: The lines are drawn; pick a sideAfter a night of terror and chaos Parisians found themselves caught between wishing life could go on as normal and fear that the bloodshed was not yet over The City of Lights ground to a virtual standstill with the authorities closing schools museums libraries food markets swimming pools and leisure centers Security was boosted at city halls across Paris Sports matches were canceled many metro lines were shut and Disneyland Paris closed its doors for the first time since it opened in 1992 as the city reeled from the deadliest attack since World War II But in the 10th arrondissement where two of the attacks took place many cafés and shops were open on Saturday Dozens of people wandered the streets their faces fixed in somber defiance of the authorities instructions to stay inside for now It’s a feeling I can understand I had not been dispatched to Paris on assignment as a journalist I had come for a weekend away with four friends and spent Friday wandering cobbled streets in the Marais eating crepes sipping coffee and visiting museums When the first explosions went off on Friday night I wasnt looking at my phone As we emerged from the metro about a quarter past ten and walked towards the restaurant where we planned to celebrate our friends birthday it was immediately clear that the mood had shifted in the twenty minutes we had spent underground Paris was not bustling with Friday night revelers but with tense clusters of people on the streets I glanced at my phone disoriented and saw that there were reports of some kind of soccer-related violence at the Stade de France But the scenes in central Paris told a different story: sirens were wailing nearby and the same words kept echoing on the crowded streets: Charlie Hebdo We arrived at the restaurant we had booked for dinner to find it had pulled all its shutters down and looked closed Paris was under attack we were told While the dozen people and staff still in the restaurant tried to carry on as normal serving dishes and mixing cocktails my phone began flashing relentlessly with messages flooding TIMEs breaking news chat room In between courses and clinking glasses the death toll kept climbing: 18 dead then 26 then 60 One hundred hostages Four

second time since 1961 and required all people entering the country to show documentation Even taxi-hailing app Uber urged everyone to stay inside I had written about terror many times before but I had never felt it until last night The apartment we had rented for the weekend was nearly an hours walk away from the restaurant Worse still it was in the 10th arrondissement less than a mile from three of the sites we knew to be under attack Every taxi we saw was occupied the nearby hotels were full and our cellphones were all so close to being out of battery that we couldnt effectively search the #PorteOuverte (#OpenDoor) hashtag to find somewhere safe to stay Stuck in the restaurant we had no choice but to try and act as though things were okay After all unlike so many others we were safe "What the terrorists want is for us to be afraid" each one of us would say from time to time as if we werent By the time we found a taxi and left the restaurant it was past 4am The streets of Paris had emptied and 127 people were dead This morning after a couple of hours of snatched sleep I joined the crowds gathering at the corner of Rue Bichat to lay flowers and light candles outside Le Petit

week Taiwan’s President went into this weekend’s local elections battered his approval ratings low Then on Saturday his party the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) got thoroughly trounced losing ground across the island including key mayoral posts in Taichung and Taipei The results prompted Prime Minister Jiang Yi-huah to resign and 80 cabinet colleagues to also offer to step down an act of contrition that may or may not be enough to staunch growing dissatisfaction with the government’s handling of food-safety scandals the economy and the island’s relations with China Ma may yet resign his chairmanship of the KMT China and Taiwan have been at odds since Mao Zedong’s communists prevailed and the nationalists beat a retreat across the strait Ma came to power in 2008 promising to put existential questions about Taiwan’s relationship with China on hold focusing instead on building economic ties with the Chinese mainland He was re-elected in 2012 in a hard-fought battle with the opposition Democratic Progress Party (DPP) which is generally more skeptical of Beijing It was a narrow victory Ma beat challenger Tsai Ing-wen by about 6% of the vote and in the years since his government lost more ground This spring demonstrators occupied the legislature under the banner of the Sunflower Movement to protest the government’s handling of a proposed trade pact with China only heightening the sense of a political reckoning to come This weekend voters delivered it While it might be tempting especially from a distance to read the results as a sort of referendum on cross-strait ties to do so is to misunderstand the island’s electoral landscape What the results show Taiwan watchers say is that the voting public is deeply unhappy with the status quo under the KMT including but not limited to their China policy They are worried about quality of life issues clean government and want their leaders to focus on competing globally not just trading with China “These are local elections fought on local issues by local personalities so we have to be careful not to overinterpret the results” says Alan D Romberg distinguished fellow and the director of the East Asia program at the Stimson Center in Washington DC “Cross-strait relations were not at the center this time but next time in [the 2016 general elections] they will be” Indeed the KMT losses are particularly striking considering that the 2016 presidential election is fast approaching The prospect of a KMT defeat in that contest that is to say a win by the opposition DPP could potentially alter the calculus of cross-strait ties Unlike the KMT which accepts some iteration of Beijing’s “one-China policy” the DPP is more reticent The DPP maintains that Taiwan is already a sovereign nation and should engage with China on those terms The DPP does not see reunification in the future a no-no for Beijing As such the prospect of a DPP government in 2016 is sure to worry the Communist Party’s top cadres Says Shelley Rigger a Taiwan specialist at Davidson College in North Carolina: “Beijing is definitely not loving this” Especially right now Since late September pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong have occupied for long stints three neighborhoods in the former British colony demanding a more representative voting system The movement is like the Sunflower Movement before it student-led and fueled by a deep distrust of the ruling Chinese Communist Party in Beijing Though Hong Kong is not as any Taiwan person would tell you the same as Taiwan Beijing cannot be pleased with the parallel Beijing sees Taiwan as a renegade province and compares Hong Kong to an impertinent child At a time when President Xi Jinping is speaking evocatively of an “Asia-Pacific dream” and forging ties abroad it is awkward to have trouble at (what he considers) home Going forward Taiwan politicians must find ways to engage with China without alienating a public that is increasingly wary of Beijing’s embrace “The question for China is: How do we deal with a Taiwan that does not make anything easy” Rigger says After the week he has had President Ma may be wondering the same thing Write to Emily Rauhala at [email protected] good evidence that fish oil supplements may lower the risk of second heart events like a heart attack or stroke in people with heart disease but few rigorous studies have investigated whether the supplement can help people to lower their risk of having a heart event in the first place And while some data suggests that people with lower levels of vitamin D tend to have higher rates of heart disease and cancer the evidence isnt solid Now a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine and presented at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association offers more findings about the effects of these two supplements on heart disease and cancer While they don’t appear to do much overall in this study fish oil seems to help specific groups of people and the researchers believe that vitamin D may simply take longer to have an effect on cancer rates and deaths The VITAL study (VITamin D and omegA-3 triaL) set out to provide some more answers on what if any effect the two nutrients have on health It is the first large-scale rigorous controlled study to investigate how omega-3 supplements may affect heart disease risk in a people without a history of heart problems More than 25800 people were randomly assigned to one of four groups: one received 2000 IU of vitamin D a day and a placebo another took 1g of omega-3 fatty acids a day with a placebo a third took both 2000 IU of vitamin D and 1g of omega-3 a day and the last group received two daily placebos All volunteers took their assigned nutrients for approximately five years and researchers logged everything from cancer diagnoses to major heart events including heart attack and stroke as well as deaths from cancer and heart disease The researchers led by Dr JoAnn Manson from the Brigham and Womens Hospital and professor of womens health at Harvard Medical School combined the studies of vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids because they are not known to interact with each other in significant ways that would affect health outcomes VITAL allowed her group to study both nutrients in an efficient way for their effects on heart disease and cancer two chronic diseases that affect a large proportion of the population The people taking omega-3 fatty acids did not have a lower rate of heart events compared to the people taking placebo But the results dont necessarily suggest that fish oil can only help people with a history of heart problems The researchers in VITAL looked at overall heart outcomes together combining heart attack stroke and heart-related deaths; taken together they found no difference between people taking omega-3 supplements and placebo When they pulled out individual heart events however they found some interesting patterns People taking the omega-3 supplements showed a 28% lower risk of having a heart attack compared to people taking placebo In addition people who reported eating less fish seemed to show a greater benefit in lowering their risk of heart problems compared to people who ate more fish Manson and her team also found that African-American volunteers in the omega-3 group lowered their risk of heart problems more than whites taking the fish oil supplements That finding she says remained regardless of how much fish the African-American volunteers ate which suggests some possible genetic reasons for why African-Americans may benefit more from omega-3 fatty acids "We dont know if this is a chance finding or if it may in fact point to an important way to reduce heart risk in African-Americans" says Manson When they looked at the effects of vitamin D they also found little difference among those taking the nutrient and those taking placebo when it came to overall heart disease and cancer measures But again Manson says that doesnt mean vitamin D is not playing a role in cancer Some studies suggest that the vitamin can inhibit the progression of tumors so while it may not lower the rate of new cancers it could reduce the risk of dying from cancer And because cancer takes longer to develop longer term studies would need to verify if thats indeed the case "If someone has a cancer that hasnt yet been diagnosed but is already present vitamin D may make that cancer less invasive and less likely to spread" she says Manson is planning on doing more research to delve further into the question of whether vitamin D supplements have differing effects on cancer at various stages of the disease In about six months she says she also plans on reporting additional outcomes from VITAL including whether vitamin D and omega-3 supplements have any effect on diabetes cognitive function mood disorders like depression infections and autoimmune diseases Contact us at [email protected] Getty Images
