Back to All Stories First-party data is the data that a company collects itself. It's the data collected at acquisition from a web form or an event. It's also the data collected when a customer makes a purchase or downloads a whitepaper. It can include company-specific data, customer-specific data, demographics, psychographics, and beyond, as long as the company itself is the one collecting. Another way to look at it: it's the data that a marketing team works so hard to collect. You put in the hours upfront to build systems to capture information on users, but it's easy to let the strategy end there. Instead, let's get more juice from the collected data.

Scientists obtained a total of 733 pathogen isolates from 171 individual wild Bottlenose dolphins in Florida and found that the overall prevalence of resistance to at least one antibiotic for the 733 isolates was 88.2%. Resistance was highest to erythromycin, followed by ampicillin. It is likely that these isolates from dolphins originated from a source where antibiotics are regularly used, potentially entering the marine environment through human activities or discharges from terrestrial sources. <!-- more --> ......

The nearly extinct white rhino might live on, thanks to lab-created embryosHumanity may be able to save the northern white rhino after all, thanks to scientists who managed to create two in vitro embryos. When Sudan, the last male northern white rhino left at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, died in 2018, the two female rhinos Fatu and Najin were the only ones left of their species. Since they couldn't procreate, it seemed to be only a matter of time before the species would go extinct. But on Wednesday, there was a breakthrough. An international consortium of scientists announced that they'd successfully extracted immature eggs from Fatu and Najin, and then airlifted them to Avantea laboratory in Italy. When the eggs were ready for fertilization, they were injected with the sperm of two now-dead male northern white rhinos. Najin's eggs didn't make it, since the sample quality of the sperm used for her eggs was poor. But Fatu's fertilized eggs did develop into viable embryos, and were promptly frozen, according to a statement from the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, one of the partners in the consortium. The two viable embryos will be transferred to a surrogate mother, since neither Najin nor Fatu can carry a pregnancy. > View this post on Instagram> > With Najin and Fatu, the last two northern white rhinos, unable to carry a pregnancy, the future of the northern white rhino species solely depends on artificial reproduction. Over the past few years, scientists have been working very hard on perfecting a procedure for both harvesting and fertilisation in vitro. The successful harvest of 10 eggs from the northern white rhinos yesterday (August 22nd, 2019) means that scientists are now closer to saving the species from complete extinction. @amivitale ---------------------------------------------- @kenyawildlifeservice @tourism_wildlifeke @leibnizizw @biorescue_project @bmbf.bund @leibnizgemeinschaft @safariparkdvurkralove OlPejeta NorthernWhiteRhino OvumPickUp NorthernWhiteRhinoRecovery NajinandFatu SaveOurRhinos OnlyTwoLeft EndExtinction> > A post shared by Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya (@olpejeta) on Aug 23, 2019 at 1:57am PDTSEE ALSO: Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, dies aged 45"Five years ago it seemed like the production of a northern white rhino embryo was [an] almost unachievable goal -- and today we have them," Jan Stejskal, Director of Communication and International Projects from Dvůr Kralove Zoo, where Najin and Fatu were born, said in a statement. "The technique for collection of eggs was developed in cooperation with many European zoos and we are happy that this unique cooperation can continue even with attempts at successful embryo transfer." Moving forward, scientists must "optimize the process of transfer" of the embryos into a surrogate mother, and then carefully track the embryo's development into a fetus. The statement also called for additional funding and donations to "help to win our race against time," emphasizing the importance of saving biodiversity and taking "environmental responsibility." The northern white rhino, like other rhino species, was driven to near extinction because of poaching. Rhino horns are prized in parts of Asia, where they're believed to cure a variety of illnesses. The western black rhino went extinct in 2013 because of excessive poaching. The conservation group Save the Rhino says all five remaining rhino species are threatened in Africa and Asia. But the possibility of an IVF white rhino baby could change that."This development marks a turning point in the race to save the northern white rhino from near extinction," the Ol Pejeta Conservatory said in an Instagram post announcing the successful embryo creation.

Speaking four or more languages could reduce the risk of dementia finds new studyNew Canadian research has found that having a strong ability for learning languages may help to reduce an individual's risk of developing dementia. Carried out by researchers at the University of Waterloo, the new study looked at 325 Roman Catholic nuns in the United States who were taking part in the larger, internationally recognized Nun Study, which is a longitudinal study of religious sisters aged 75 and over. The findings, published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, showed that just six percent of the nuns who spoke four or more languages developed dementia, compared to 31 percent of those who only spoke one language.

One fifth of injured US cyclists were not wearing a helmet finds new studyA new large-scale US study has found that around one in five cyclists who are injured while on their bike are not wearing a helmet, with men and ethnic minorities the least likely to wear a cycle helmet to protect themselves. Led by researchers at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine & Science, and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, the new study looked at data from the 2002-2012 National Trauma Data Bank, which included information on 76,032 bicyclists (81.1 percent of whom were male and 18.9 percent female) with head or neck injury. The researchers found that of these cyclists, only 22 percent of adults wore a helmet.

All participants underwent neuropsychological tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to measure their cognitive functioning and look at their brain structure.
