2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is high-speed off-roader with cult following – Detroit Free Press

The third generation 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is an epic high-speed off-road performance pickup truck that goes on sale this summer. Wochit

This insane truck was once killed in development.

Then resurrected.

On sale this summer, the third generation 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is a high-speed, off-road, performance pickupwith what has become a cult following, owners whowantto go 100 mph in the desertand fly through the air over ruts and rocks. The Raptor that debuted on Wednesday adds new features, including a built-in generator to power anything fromcampsites to power tools.

The beefy 37-inch tires and wheels and cutting-edgesuspension deliver stability despite the extreme terrain even while you're holding onto the "oh, sh*t" handle.

Normally, you'd have to tear apart a vehicle to get it to fit such enormous tires. These are stock, not special order. And they're 2 inches bigger than earlier models.

Getting this level of equipment, once custom, is now turnkey. Itlifts the truck to a new level. And the sound of the exhaust is a "deeper more menacing sound."

If testosterone had a soundtrack, this would be it.

This is a high-performance war that started a decade ago.

"We couldn't be more excited. Ford invented the off-road high performance pickup segment withthe first generation Raptorin 2009. It was truly inspired by the trophytrucks thatraced the Baja 1000," said Todd Eckert, Ford Truck Group marketing manager.

The Raptorwas so different from anything that had been done before that it took awhile for some people at Ford towake up to the fact the company could create a whole new category of high performance off-road pickups. So initial plans were shelved.

The passion of the Fordteam internally played a role in resurrecting the idea. Butas soon as the internet spreadrumors and spy photosof the truck, the groundswell ofenthusiast demand was enough to help get it resurrected.

This latest version will debut with the popular heavy metal song"Enter Sandman" by Metallica.

"Raptor was born not only to speed over rough terrain but also jump and catch air. It was a one-of-a-kind entry in the performance market," he said. "Over the last fouryears, thepresent generation Raptor cumulatively outsold Porsche'sentire line of sports cars and also outsoldChevrolet's Corvette."

In 2018,Sergio Marchionne, then-CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles,rolled out afive-year plan that included a vow tocompete with the Ford Raptor. The battle has been fierce;MotorTrend namedthe Ram 1500 TRX, a more powerful and expensive desert-racer,the 2021 Truck of the Year in December.

Ford will reveal the new Raptor's power, fuel economy, priceandspecifications closer to when sales begin. The previousRaptor runs $55,150 to $76,290 with destination and delivery fees included, Ford said..

The TRX's challenge to Raptorsupremacy as the ultimate racing truck won't go unanswered. Ford is expected to add a more powerful and expensive Raptor R model with a V-8 engine in 2022.

Battles to build sporty pickups have gone on for years.

The Detroit Three builtthe Ford Lightning, Chevy Silverado SS and Ram SRT-10 like the Mustang, Camaro and Dodge Challenger of pickupsin the early 2000s. Great for street racing.

This is the modern day encore for desert racing.

"Off-road performance is in our blood," Eckert said.

The Raptor is for buyerswho want a truck to drive off-road straight from the factory while not compromising onpayload, towing, comfort ortechnology for daily use.

Features include a terrain management system, trail control and one-pedal drive. Terrain management allows owners to choose settings for driving conditions including sport, rock crawl andthedune-jumping, frequently airborne, Baja mode.

Thesystem automatically modifies steering feel, active valve exhaust, position-sensitive damping, throttle mapping and transmissionshift points to optimize Raptor's performance to conditions. Trail control is standard.

"Think of it as cruise control for low-speed driving," Eckert said. "Drivers just set a speed up to 20 mph and the Raptor manages throttle and braking to allow the driverto focus really only on steering.It makes it easier for drivers to maintain constant speeds over difficult terrain ... or for getting throughdeep snow or sand. It's activated simply using a button on the center console."

One pedal drive combines acceleration and braking; press to accelerate and release to brake. Just one footisneeded for off-road activity like rock crawling.

Raptor also has an onboard generator that prevents the need for a portable generator tocampor work, a key feature cited whenthe F-150 won the North American Truck of the Year.

The Ford team spent months in the desert torture testing.

"We start with a high-strength steel F-150 frame, which has been modified and reinforced for Raptor's extreme usage," said Tony Greco, Raptor program manager."The modifications and reinforcements which we makeinclude taller and stronger shock towers, unique control arm pivot locations, a lower front axle which is needed for increased travel, stronger bracketry for suspension, shocks and spring attachments and a Raptor-specific trailer hitch."

Raptor's front and rear suspensions were redesignedto improve off-road traction and stability and on-road ride andhandling quality, he said.

"The new five-link suspension design ...stabilizes the rear axle laterally and dramatically improves traction, which allows more torque to the rear wheels to be put to the ground," Greco said. Result: faster acceleration and better throttle responsiveness.

There's moreto shareabout ball joints, knuckles, wheel bearingsand coil springsbut you get the idea. Anytime designers talk about "geometry changes" in vehicle discussions, well, it's a good thing.

This is about aggressive control and stability off-road and smooth plush ride on road.

If youre jumping, the further down your wheels are hanging, the more absorption you're going to get when you land, due to the shock absorbers stroking.

"That's where we see the big value in off-road events, when you're often up and down quite a bit. The shock technology and how we've deployed that on this vehicle," architecture engineer Jack Cooper said. "You can go faster in the desert, you can hit bigger things. If youdon't have as much travel and can't absorb that energy, you'll hit harder, the suspension will bottom harder, and it'll be less comfortable and not as durable in theend."

"We learn more and moreevery time we push the envelope. It's one of the best parts of my job, working with the vehicle dynamics team." said Cooper, whose brother is a software developer at Google."I have a dream job."

Coronavirus may cause sperm damage; Ways to boost male fertility – TheHealthSite

As we know, the impact of coronavirus is not limited to the respiratory system. It can lead to several complications, including fertility. A new study has finally found a link between coronavirus and male fertility. According to the study published in the Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany found that severe cases of COVID-19 can impact the quality of sperm quality, thus affecting male fertility. Another study published in the Asian Journal of Urology found that SARS-CoV-2 could impact a mens reproductive health, including spermatogenic failure.

Although some studies have shown the negative impact of the coronavirus on male fertility, researchers said that more research is needed to draw definite conclusions. Meanwhile, there are certain things you could do to improve sperm count. Also Read - Jharkhand health staffer dies two days after getting COVID-19 vaccine

We cant stress the importance of exercise enough. Not only does it helps boost testosterone levels, but it also improves the quality of life. A study published in the European Journal of Applied Psychology, men who exercise regularly have higher testosterone levels and better semen quality as compared to men who dont exercise. Also Read - COVAX announces initial COVID-19 vaccine roll out: 336ml doses from AstraZeneca-SII, 1.2ml from Pfizer-BioNTech by March end

You probably know that vitamin C is an important nutrient that helps boost the immune system, but did you know that it is good for male fertility? Some studies have shown that including vitamin C can help improve fertility. It has also been reported that vitamin C supplements also enhanced sperm count and motility (bodys ability to move food through its digestive tract).

Studies have found that elevated cortisol levels (stress hormone) can have a negative effect on testosterone. Managing stress by exercising, spending time with your loved ones, meditating, and walking in nature can help.

A popular culinary ingredient, fenugreek contains properties that improve sexual health. A study published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism studied the data of 30 men. They concluded that men who included fenugreek in their diet experienced a significant increase in testosterone levels and strength. Another study showed that consuming fenugreek regularly can help improve libido, sexual performance and strength.

A traditional medicinal herb, ashwagandha may boost testosterone levels, thus improving male fertility. Several studies have shown that ashwagandha supplements can help better sperm count, sperm motility, and antioxidant status, all of which is good for male fertility.

While the above methods may help, some lifestyle changes may help too. Here are some tips that might help.

All Creatures Great and Small Recap: The One With the Snack Hamper – Vulture

We love the things that help get us through hard times with a love that surpasseth understanding. With that in mind, I think you will understand when I say that this remake of All Creatures Great and Small is among the greatest things bestowed upon humankind in this last year. It is a gentle human drama filled with well-intentioned gentle humans trying their best, and the few times they are not trying their best, they are gently ashamed. I go into every new episode with the relief of I am about to watch a very nice thing. In these times, the appeal of that cannot be overestimated.

This entire episode revolves around a Pekingese. Yes, correct, it is the extremely wealthy Mrs. Pumphreys dog Tricki Woo, a dog I could not possibly love more, played by Derek. Wonderful dog acting from Derek once again this episode. Tricki is a pile of fluff. A Tribble of a dog. What is the greatest thing about Tricki? Is it his absurd leonine mane? The giant cushions he sleeps on? The fact that he shakes paws (I LITERALLY screamed when this happened)? His little snuffling noises? That Mrs. Pumphrey calls him my boofums? OR E, ALL OF THE ABOVE.

But before we get to Tricki, we also have Tristan. Or Tris, as I am forever calling him after last episode. Tris spends the episode asking Siegfried for money so he can go back to school and, presumably, have more fun than answering the phone at the practice and mixing horse medicine. Siegfried is understandably reticent because Tris keeps failing his exams, so Tris must prove himself. This somehow comes down to taking Tricki on walks, making the latter am I going to say it, yes I am a perambulating Pekingese (we have fun here). The practice has possession of Tricki because he is dangerously overweight. When asked if Mrs. Pumphrey has been sticking to his diet of dry dog biscuits, she says yes, to the letter, and then charmingly adds, perhaps not every letter. I AM STEALING THIS, DIANA RIGG. (RIP.)

She has been feeding Tricki calfs foot jelly, cod liver oil, Beef Wellington, and a bowl of Horlicks. If you are, like I am, an American, you might have said is that like ice cream? Nope! Think about milk, but its hot and also you add malt to it. I know, I dont get it either. Its slogan in 1961 was Horlicks the food drink of the night. NOPE. It was actually created in the United States and brought on expeditions to the North and South Pole, and then eventually that trickled on down to it being fed to the overly pampered Pekingese set.

James is concerned enough about Tricki that he takes him to stay at the practice so they can feed him appropriately and take him on walks. My notes for his visit at Mrs. Pumphreys just say GIMME THAT DOG, but we now need to move onto the very important fact that Tricki has a tiny, dog-size chaise longue. Has anyone made a website for Extravagant Pet Furniture, because I will look at that site every single day.

The drama of the episode hinges around the Hamper o Snacks, which Tris and Siegfried spend the following days pilfering. Despite Tris taking Tricki on very long walks and feeding him the presumably joyless dry dog food he must now consume for his health, Tricki is gaining rather than losing weight. This is because Siegfried left the hamper open and Tricki has been merrily dragging whole slices of ham out of it with his tiny dog strength. There is a big TO-DO about this, but! Lets talk about Clive real quick.

Dyou remember Clive? The massive bull who looks like one of those 18th-century paintings where you think that cows proportions are off, but really we just arent used to breeds of cow that arent Holsteins? Clive belongs to Helen and he has been sired out, i.e. hired to do it with someone elses cows, but hes not doing it, so James has to give him a shot of testosterone.

This is an unremarkable plot point, because the testosterone, undramatically, works, but its there to (1) let us once again see Clive, who is truly amazing and I love him, (2) show us everyone wearing velvet pants, or what I think are velvet pants, and it makes me want velvet pants, and (3) get James to give Helen a lift home, until they run into Hot Neville, who seems to have forgiven James for killing his horse. James has a Jessies Girl moment as he looks at the two flirting, but this dynamic remains the least interesting to me, because we know James and Helen are probably going to get married. Its very, yes, yes, check this off the list, now lets look at the others.

The relationships that are of true import here are Siegfried/Mrs. Hall and Mrs. Pumphrey/Tricki Woo. I cant nail down Siegfried and Mrs. Halls situation, and it makes me love it all the more. He knows more about her and her difficulties with her son than were allowed to know. He clearly feels something more for her, but its under enough layers of subtext that it seems hes not allowed to properly express it. They have this unspoken arrangement in their dynamic that I am all about and it feels like the actors have sat down and had a good discussion about their backstory and ITS JUST SO GOOD. As for Mrs. Pumphrey and Tricki Woo, that is a love for the ages.

Will we ever find out Whats Up With Edward?

Do velvet pants wear well?

When Helen inevitably dumps Hot Neville, will he find solace in the world of botany?

Will I descend into the uttermost depths of the All Creatures fandom, and now that weve found out the practices telephone number, change my WiFi Network to Darrowby2297?

Keep up with all the drama of your favorite shows!

Testosterone for Managing Treatment-related Fatigue in Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Pha… – UroToday

Fatigue is one of the most common adverse events of systemic therapy in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The aim of multicenter randomized phase 2 study was to determine the efficacy and safety of testosterone in patients with fatigue developed during targeted therapy.

Male patients with metastatic clear-cell RCC, normal prostate-specific antigen level, low testosterone level, and no evidence of hypothyroidism receiving first-line sunitinib or pazopanib with fatigue were randomly assigned (1:1) to either testosterone undecanoate (1000mg) and targeted therapy or targeted therapy alone. The primary endpoint was the mean change of fatigue from baseline to 28 days according to the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue scale. Secondary endpoints were safety, Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Kidney Symptom Index 19, testosterone serum concentrations, red blood cell count, and hemoglobin level.

Sixty patients were assigned to receive testosterone and targeted therapy (N=30) or targeted therapy alone (N=30). As of the data cutoff on December 30, 2019, median follow-up was 18.2 months. The study achieved its primary endpoint based on the significant differences at day 28 favoring testosterone over targeted therapy alone regarding the decreased level of fatigue (difference between groups, 22.5 points; 95% confidence interval, 18.4-26.6; P=0.012). Significant changes in scores demonstrating the enhanced quality of life with testosterone compared with targeted therapy were also observed for Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Kidney Symptom Index 19 disease-related symptoms (P=0.01). There were nonsignificant differences in red blood cell count and hemoglobin level between the 2 groups (all P>0.05).

Male patients with metastatic RCC and hypogonadism receiving testosterone had less fatigue and better symptom control during targeted therapy.

Objective: Obesity and metabolic syndrome have been reported to exert an impact on the male reproductive system with decreasing levels of serum total testosterone (TT); however, the effect of different metabolic obesity phenotypes on testosterone has been poorly studied. We aimed to evaluate the association of metabolic obesity phenotypes and total testosterone levels in a Chinese male population.Methods: We performed a retrospective study based on an epidemiological investigation, a total of 4,081 male individuals aged from 40 75 years old were recruited. The population was classified as metabolically healthy normal weight (MHNW), metabolically healthy overweight/obese (MHO), metabolically unhealthy normal weight (MUNW), and metabolically unhealthy overweight/obese (MUO) according to normal weight (BMI< 25.0) and overweight/obesity (BMI 25.0) with or without metabolic syndrome.Results: We collected 563 hypotestosteronemia among 4,081 male individuals. The odds ratios (ORs) (95% CIs) of hypotestosteronemia in obesity and metabolic syndrome were 3.072 (2.414 3.911) and 3.294 (2.631 4.125), respectively, after adjusting for age, luteinizing hormone, smoking status, and alcohol consumption. Compared to the MHNW group, male subjects in MHO, MUNW, and MUO groups had decreased serum TT levels. Additionally, the MUO group had a lowest concentration of serum TT and a highest proportion of hypotestosteronemia. There was no significant difference of TT levels between the MHO and MUNW groups.Conclusion: Obesity and metabolic syndrome are independent risk factors of hypotestosteronemia in Chinese male populations. Our study also suggested that individuals with MHO, MUNW, and MUO have a higher risk of developing hypotestosteronemia.

Marius Pharmaceuticals Announces Co-CEOs Himanshu H. Shah and Shalin Shah to Drive Growth ahead of Anticipated FDA Action of its Lead Asset, KYZATREX…

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marius Pharmaceuticals, a specialty pharmaceutical company focusing on treating conditions that are primarily associated with testosterone deficiency, today announced that it has appointed Himanshu H. Shah and Shalin Shah as co-CEOs to drive the next phase of growth as the company looks to a potential launch of KYZATREX in Q4 2021 and further the development of Marius deep clinical pipeline.

Himanshu H. Shah brings over 30 years of experience across global capital markets and will continue his role as chairman of the board in addition to co-CEO. He has advised numerous public and private companies over the past decades to help them unlock substantial shareholder value and execute both innovative and pragmatic business strategies.

I am proud to continue serving Marius and work on developing the best treatment options for men with hypogonadism, a common but not widely discussed disease among patients and prescribers, said Himanshu H. Shah, chairman and co-CEO of Marius Pharmaceuticals. Misconceptions about hypogonadism are having a huge impact on the health of millions of men globally and costing the U.S. healthcare system alone billions of dollars annually. There is a huge opportunity for Marius to address these issues and drastically alter the testosterone therapy landscape.

Shalin Shah will also step into the role of co-CEO from chief financial officer and executive vice president of strategy for Marius. Shalin has been integral in driving overall strategy at Marius for the past four years and will oversee the growth of the team and execution of innovative models as it expands both clinically and commercially to become a leading pharmaceutical company.

I am excited for the opportunity to serve Marius in this new capacity, especially at a time when the world is seeing technology and healthcare intersect more than ever, truly helping patients, said Shalin Shah, co-CEO of Marius Pharmaceuticals. I am confident in Marius mission to better the lives of patients by ensuring adequate levels of testosterone and enhance patient care through disruptive technologies and personalization.

Om Dhingra, Ph.D., led the company from initial development of the lead compound through two successful Phase 3 clinical trials and will move into the role of vice chairman. He will help guide the companys clinical development plan and ensure KYZATREX and its differentiating safety and efficacy data is well known in the medical world.

It has been my great pleasure serving the company as CEO. I am very proud of the data we have generated, which we believe will position KYZATREX as the standard of care for patients suffering from hypogonadism globally, said Dr. Om Dhingra, vice chairman of Marius Pharmaceuticals.

If approved by the FDA, KYZATREX has the potential to become the new standard of care for treating patients with hypogonadism. Testosterone is a crucial hormone that is essential to sexual and reproductive health, but also has important functions in metabolic, inflammatory, cardiovascular and neurological health. In the U.S. there are at least six million symptomatic men suffering from hypogonadism, and over 100 million men globally. The resulting medical costs associated with men with untreated hypogonadism and related comorbidities are more than $25 billion in the U.S. alone. Current treatments on the market are dominated by therapies with unappealing administration methods, including auto-injections, in-office infusions and topical gels and creams that have a high transference risk. KYZATREX is an orally administered treatment that avoids the drawbacks that keep men from continuing treatment on available testosterone therapies.

About KYZATREX KYZATREX if approved, will represent a novel oral testosterone replacement therapy option for adult males indicated for conditions associated with a deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone: primary hypogonadism (congenital or acquired) and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (congenital or acquired).

The ReTUNE study was a multi-center, 12-month study across the U.S. that studied the safety and efficacy of KYZATREX in hypogonadal subjects (total testosterone 281 ng/dL). Efficacy was determined by number of subjects in the normal, eugonadal range after 90 days of treatment, including dose titrations, while safety was monitored for a further 9 months while on a steady dose. In addition to testosterone parameters, the study collected Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs), which showed statistically significant results both from baseline and against its comparator. A pivotal six-month Phase 3 study was conducted, in which subjects were monitored using ABPM, now considered the standard BP assessment by the FDA and clinical experts. An improved dose regimen was also used in the pivotal six-month Phase 3 study. The results of the Phase 3 studies will be published in leading medical journals and presented at national conferences in 2021.

The FDA has conditionally accepted KYZATREX as the trade name for this investigational drug. The safety and efficacy have not been fully evaluated by any regulatory authority.

About Marius PharmaceuticalsMarius is a specialty pharmaceutical company focusing on treating conditions that are primarily associated with hypogonadism, commonly referred to as testosterone deficiency. The companys mission is to improve the functional lives of patients and reduce the risks of the downstream effects of endocrine imbalance by ensuring appropriate level of testosterone.

Cow’s Milk and Acne for Skin Myth – Skim Milk and Skin Inflammation – HarpersBAZAAR.com

Welcome back to Beauty Basics, a column dedicated to ending pervasive beauty myths (like whether or not pores open and close and if niacinamide is really all that!) once and for all. In this edition we're taking a look at the relationship between milk, acne, and skin inflammation.

Naturally, my mind went straight to my increased dairy intake, since the aphorism that "milk's bad for your skin" is as common as "drink water for good skin." (Been there, tried that). And interestingly, I wasnt completely wrong this time. We know that dairy, particularly skim milk, has been associated with skin inflammation and acne breakouts, says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, Associate Professor of Dermatology and Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research at Mount Sinai Hospital. The thought is that skim milk contains a high sugar load as well as whey protein which activates messengers that stimulate our oil glands. This means more oil and inflammation, leading to acne breakouts.

Lets talk about whey protein real quick, since you might only know it as something you can buy in bulk for your smoothies. Whey proteins are mixtures of proteins isolated from whey, which is the liquid part of milk that separates when cheese is made, explains Skin Wellness Dermatologys Dr. Corey L. Hartman. From there, this protein can create a domino effect. Whey increases the production of Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1). Insulin increases the production of oil, which contributes to the development of acne. It also triggers androgen production, testosterone hormones that stimulate oil and cause acne, says Hartman. Dr. Joyce Imahiyerobo-Ip, CEO of Vibrant Dermatology and Skin Bar MD, also notes that cow milk contains caseinanother protein linked to IGF-1and high levels of progesterone, which is converted to an acne-stimulating hormone dihydroxytesterone in human sebaceous glands.

But wait, theres more. Daily Harvest nutritionist Amy Shapiro notes that while the hormone IGF-1 is found in our blood already, cows that are treated with Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (RBGH) tend to have higher IGF-1 levels, since RBGH stimulates milk production by stimulating the release of IGF-1. (Thats why certain dairy milks are advertised as RBGH-free.)

Swapping in non-dairy milk isnt a get-out-of-jail-free pass, either. Shapiro points out that while alt milks might not contain casein, whey protein, or hormones"which can help consumers avoid skin and digestive issues"they can be formulated with gums, emulsifiers, preservatives, carrageenans, and extra sugar. These can trigger gut and skin issues, too. When purchasing alt milks, I recommend reading ingredient labels first, she says. Look for clean, simple, whole-food-based ingredient lists.

So, remember how I said I love dairy milk? I still do, even though this is all a lot to take in. Dairy isnt all bad. Fermented dairy products, such as yogurt, help deliver probiotics to the body, says Zeichner. And that has a domino effect as well: Probiotics are bacteria that help restore a healthy microbiome. The microbiome is the collection of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses that live symbiotically on our bodies.

I switched from the occasional splash of skim milk just to see what would happen, and surprise, surprisemy involuntary sunburn went away. Although my nose is probably always going to look a little redder and jollier than Id like, my skin tone actually looks like the rest of my face now. Not too shabby for a skin care fix I can take with my coffee.

The 3 Hormones This Longevity Expert Wants You To Focus On For Healthy Aging – mindbodygreen.com

Testosterone is also crucial for building muscle, says Blander. "It's an anabolic hormone," he notes, which means it stimulates muscle growth. Plus, when it's low, it's linked to a plethora of age-related concerns: According to one study, testosterone insufficiency in older men is associated with increased risk of death from heart disease. "There is also a strong correlation between levels of testosterone and age [itself]," Blander adds. "Every male, every year, loses between 1 and 2% of his testosterone levels during his life span. So if your testosterone stays higher, you are theoretically younger compared to your peers."

Admittedly, much of the research on low testosterone has been done on men (women have naturally lower levels of the hormone already, and doctors don't always have the same treatments for insufficient levels). But according to Blander, testosterone is importantfor both genderswhen it comes to its ratio with cortisol. (Again, cortisol can break down muscles.) "We need to find a way to make testosterone the highest possible, naturally, and then make the cortisol the lowest possible. Then you have a better way to build muscle."(Pro tip: A nutrient-dense diet rich in healthy fatslike a ketogenic dietcan help optimize testosterone levels.)
