Half of all New Yorkers expect to fle city in next five years

Published

on

A recent poll conducted by The Citizens Budget Commission has uncovered a dramatic decline in resident satisfaction and a looming exodus from the city.

The survey, released Tuesday, paints a troubling picture of discontentment among New Yorkers, with only 30% expressing happiness with their quality of life and a mere 37% considering public safety in their neighborhood as excellent or good—a notable drop from six years ago.

The survey, which encompassed 6,600 households, revealed that just half of New Yorkers plan to remain in the city over the next five years—a significant decrease from 58% in 2017.

This mass exodus is attributed to a variety of factors, including rising concerns about safety, declining quality of public services, and a pervasive sense of lawlessness permeating the streets.

Deteriorating conditions

According to Queens Councilman Robert Holden, residents are increasingly fed up with deteriorating conditions, citing instances of shoplifting in stores and vandalism of personal property as common occurrences.

The sentiment of unease extends to public transportation, with half of the respondents expressing feeling unsafe riding the subway during daylight hours—a marked decrease from previous years.

The dissatisfaction is not uniform across demographics.

The poll highlighted that white residents, those living in Manhattan, and individuals with higher incomes reported higher levels of satisfaction compared to other groups.

However, even in affluent neighborhoods, there has been a notable decline in contentment over the past six years.

The pervasive discontent is further compounded by a surge in crime rates.

NYPD statistics indicate a significant increase in all major crime categories between 2017 and 2023, contributing to a growing sense of insecurity among residents.

AI tracks enigmatic cancers back to origins in new study

Published

on

In a groundbreaking development, scientists have unveiled a remarkable AI tool that promises to revolutionise the detection and treatment of metastatic cancers.

These elusive cancers often evade detection until they have already spread to distant organs, posing a significant challenge for diagnosis and treatment. Published in Nature Medicine, the study showcases an AI model developed by researchers at Tianjin Medical University (TMU) in China, led by Tian Fei and Li Xiangchun. Trained on a vast dataset of 30,000 images from 21,000 individuals, the AI model demonstrated an unprecedented accuracy rate of 83% in identifying the origins of metastatic cancer cells found in fluid samples from abdominal or lung regions.

Impressively, the model’s top three predictions included the tumour’s source with a staggering 99% accuracy.

This breakthrough not only surpasses the capabilities of human pathologists but also offers a beacon of hope for the 300,000 people annually diagnosed with cancer at TMU-affiliated hospitals, where approximately 4,000 cases rely on such image-based diagnoses.

By significantly reducing the need for invasive tests and providing timely and accurate predictions, this AI tool could potentially extend the lives of late-stage cancer patients. Faisal Mahmood of Harvard Medical School praises the study’s findings, highlighting the potential of AI as an indispensable assistive tool in healthcare.

Looking ahead, the integration of AI with tissue samples and genomic data holds the promise of further enhancing outcomes for individuals battling metastatic cancers of unknown origins, ushering in a new era of precision medicine and personalised care.
