Since then the Board has held the cash rate steady, with the stimulatory setting of monetary policy helping the economy adjust to the winding down of the mining investment boom.”He said RBA wanted “an average rate of inflation over time of between 2 and 3 per cent in a way that promotes the public interest and does not add to medium-term financial stability risks”.He said the way that RBA worked with other financial regulators through the year was “a valuable aspect of Australia’s regulatory arrangements and one that does not exist in all countries”.
Researchers may have determined what triggers autism in children and it’s not vaccinations.Scientists have identified a genetic mutation that, they say, causes autism and intellectual disability.According to the study, a gene called “USP9X,” controls a network of proteins. These proteins modify cell structures that regulate how nerves communicate with each other and interpret information. Researchers say that the mutation of this process affects early postnatal brain development.They say that it is linked to Autism Spectrum Disorder, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.Scientists say that with this new knowledge there is greater possibility of the development of treatment.The three year study was a collaborative effort between University of Chicago, Northwestern University, University of Queensland and University of Adelaide.
