Findings: The number of people aged 30-79 years with hypertension doubled from 1990 to 2019, from 331 (95% credible interval 306-359) million women and 317 (292-344) million men in 1990 to 626 (584-668) million women and 652 (604-698) million men in 2019, despite stable global age-standardised prevalence. In 2019, age-standardised hypertension prevalence was lowest in Canada and Peru for both men and women; in Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and some countries in western Europe including Switzerland, Spain, and the UK for women; and in several low-income and middle-income countries such as Eritrea, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Solomon Islands for men. Hypertension prevalence surpassed 50% for women in two countries and men in nine countries, in central and eastern Europe, central Asia, Oceania, and Latin America. Globally, 59% (55-62) of women and 49% (46-52) of men with hypertension reported a previous diagnosis of hypertension in 2019, and 47% (43-51) of women and 38% (35-41) of men were treated. Control rates among people with hypertension in 2019 were 23% (20-27) for women and 18% (16-21) for men. In 2019, treatment and control rates were highest in South Korea, Canada, and Iceland (treatment >70%; control >50%), followed by the USA, Costa Rica, Germany, Portugal, and Taiwan. Treatment rates were less than 25% for women and less than 20% for men in Nepal, Indonesia, and some countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania. Control rates were below 10% for women and men in these countries and for men in some countries in north Africa, central and south Asia, and eastern Europe. Treatment and control rates have improved in most countries since 1990, but we found little change in most countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania. Improvements were largest in high-income countries, central Europe, and some upper-middle-income and recently high-income countries including Costa Rica, Taiwan, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Brazil, Chile, Turkey, and Iran.
Even as a little boy, Isaiah would throw himself into things that were important to him like school and athletics, he was a gifted athlete, and excelled at baseball, said his parents, Mark and Regina Webb.

There are other little signs of her friends, she says. Yellow butterflies, which have always felt like the spirit of her grandmother, appeared frequently in the weeks and months following the accident. It felt like her friends were communicating with her.
Regarding educational level moderation analyses, overall, this study found little evidence of differential effect by education for nutrient warnings. In other words, it seems unlikely that nutrient warnings would exacerbate any food choice disparity between people of high versus low educational levels in their likelihood of selecting a less healthy fruit drink or in their ability to correctly identify a fruit drink higher in sugar. There were no differences in the impact of any labels on wanting to purchase the less healthy fruit drink by level of educational attainment relative to the nutrient warning. Similarly, the impact of label condition on the likelihood of correctly identifying the less healthy product did not differ by education level relative to the nutrient warning, with the exception of the Nutri-Score condition, which had a slightly smaller benefit among those with higher education than those with lower education. It is not clear what drives this difference in effect, though it is possible such a result is due to chance provided that both fruit drinks had the same Nutri-Score. If the nutrient warning law is implemented in Colombia, evaluation research should monitor whether the law differentially impacts consumer understanding and food purchases for high- vs. low-educated consumers.
Marshaled against a virus that has sickened at least 2.6 million in the U.S., killed more than 126,000 people and cost tens of millions of jobs and $3 trillion in federal rescue money, state and local government health workers on the ground are sometimes paid so little that they qualify for public aid.
Over time, their work had received so little support that they found themselves without direction, disrespected, ignored, even vilified. The desperate struggle against COVID-19 became increasingly politicized and grew more difficult.
It might feel a little odd for 20-time national champion Stanford (19 NCAA, 1 AIAW), long regarded as the sport's gold standard having now won 19 of the possible 37 NCAA crowns, to be celebrating such success as an underdog.
The sister screamed and then saw Austin stabbing Serenity. Prosecutors said the sister tried to pull Austin off Serenity by her hair. Her grandfather, who was also living in the same apartment, had gone out to get coffee at the time, and came back to find the front door locked.

Fernanda Ruiz Martinez grew up on the southwest border in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. Ruiz Martinez arrived in Arizona at 15 years old with little knowledge about the state, its history or the language. Thanks to a youth leadership development program with a national organization in her senior year of high school, she found her calling in civic engagement and advocacy work. Learning about Arizona politics and the way it has affected her communities sparked a new-found eagerness to be vocal and start organizing for social action. 2b1af7f3a8
