          Comment on New study puts final nail in the “saturated fat causes heart disease” coffin by Kenric Botha   
@Johanna. Directly or indirectly is BESIDES the point! Anyway: “In general, fatty acids which have a chain length of less than 14 carbons enter directly into the portal vein system” Source: http://www.fao.org/docrep/v4700e/V4700E08.htm “Monoglycerides and fatty acids enter absorptive cells in the small intestine through micelles; they leave micelles and recombine into chylomicrons, which then enter the bloodstream.” Source: https://www.boundless.com/biology/textbooks/boundless-biology-textbook/animal-nutrition-and-the-digestive-system-34/digestive-system-processes-197/digestion-and-absorption-754-11987/ The chylomicrons circulate throughout the body, giving the blood plasma a milky, or creamy appearance after a fatty meal. Cholesterol (blood lipid/fat!) ‘accumulates’ in lesions or plaques (‘sticks to’) and thickens & stiffens the walls of arteries & blood vessels. Some lipoproteins play a fundamental role in atherosclerosis. There are five major types of lipoproteins. “‘Physical activity level’ is possibly a critical omission in the studies.” (Thanks @James) ““Grease? Chalky, Rolls, Bowling.”” And you laugh at my simplified-abstract-wording! You need re-educate AND re-evaluate yourself.

          Palmitoylation of cdc42 Promotes Spine Stabilization and Rescues Spine Density Deficit in a Mouse Model of 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome   
Abstract
22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is associated with learning and cognitive dysfunctions and a high risk of developing schizophrenia. It has become increasingly clear that dendritic spine plasticity is tightly linked to cognition. Thus, understanding how genes involved in cognitive disorders affect synaptic networks is a major challenge of modern biology. Several studies have pointed to a spine density deficit in 22q11DS transgenic mice models. Using the LgDel mouse model, we first quantified spine deficit at different stages using electron microscopy. Next we performed repetitive confocal imaging over several days on hippocampal organotypic cultures of LgDel mice. We show no imbalanced ratio between daily spine formation and spine elimination, but a decreased spine life expectancy. We corrected this impaired spine stabilization process by overexpressing ZDHHC8 palmitoyltransferase, whose gene belongs to the LgDel microdeletion. Overexpression of one of its substrates, the cdc42 brain-specific variant, under a constitutively active form (cdc42-palm-CA) led to the same result. Finally, we could rescue spine density in vivo, in adult LgDel mice, by injecting pups with a vector expressing cdc42-palm-CA. This study reveals a new role of ZDHHC8-cdc42-palm molecular pathway in postsynaptic structural plasticity and provides new evidence in favor of the dysconnectivity hypothesis for schizophrenia.

          APUC Committed Funding Requests Totaling $284,673.50   
By ND Commerce

The North Dakota Agricultural Products Utilization Commission (APUC) awarded funding requests for eight projects totaling $284,673.50 at its quarterly meeting July 22nd at the Rough Riders Hotel and Conference Facility in Medora.
 
APUC is a committee of the North Dakota Department of Commerce that administers grant programs for researching and developing new and expanded uses for North Dakota agricultural products. The grants can be used for basic and applied research, marketing and utilization, farm diversification, nature based agri-tourism, prototype and technology, and technical assistance.
 
The following requests were awarded:
 
Morning Joy Farm (Mercer) was awarded $26,250 for consideration in a farm diversification enhancement to their existing operation. The enhancement would utilize farm products to meet consumer demand for ready-to-eat foods and baked goods by building a commercial kitchen. Contact Annie Carlson at 701-447-2649 for additional information.
 
Buchholz Machine Shop (Lehr) was awarded $26,250 to transform a milk barn into a machine shop as well as purchasing a vertical milling machine to produce parts for area manufacturers. This will allow them to produce and promote their own products, which include an ice auger extension piece. Funds will be used for equipment and building materials. Contact Todd Buchholz at 701-321-2936 for additional information.
 
NDSU Dept. of Veterinary and Microbiology Sciences (Fargo) was awarded

Description:

Clusters: a miniature ballet performed by thousands of colored dots.

How many ways can colored dots chase each other around? What happens when a hundred dots fall in love with each other? What happens when some dots are afraid of other dots and fly away when they come near?

With the Clusters app, you can explore the dynamics of colored dots that huddle, hug, swarm, squiggle and scram. It's all based on a clever particle system algorithm that uses a mix of attractions and repulsions.

Each color is like a species in an ecosystem. Some species enjoy each other's company, so they stick together. Other species avoid each other like the plague. So, you may ask...what happens when a yellow dot and a blue dot are in love, but the yellow dot hates red dots, while the blue dot loves red dots? What happens when a red dot comes along?

Sometimes there's a skirmish. Other times, there's a delicately-balanced symbiotic relationship. When hundreds of these dots converge, the results can be quite unpredictable.

With the Clusters app, you can set up little experiments and watch what happens. It's a little bit like biology; it's a little bit like physics. So, what is it exactly? Let your imagination decide.

          Fang blenny fish’s venom may help develop new painkillers   
Fang blenny fish’s venom may help develop new painkillers

A new study by a team of Australian and British scientists has suggested that tiny fanged fish called blennies’ unusual venom could be used to produce new painkillers.

The fang blenny has two huge canines jutting out of the lower jaw. Members of this species use their venom to put off attackers; and not to kill their preys.

Associate Prof. Bryan Fry of University of Queensland's School of Biological Sciences Venom Evolution Lab led a team of researchers who conducted a series of experiments on lab mice and found that the venom is painless.

The venom of the fearless 1.5-3- inch swimmers just numbs potential predators; rather than triggering pain in their bodies.

Sharing their findings, the researchers reported, “The fish injects other fish with opioid peptides that act like heroin or morphine, inhibiting pain rather than causing it. The venom causes the bitten fish to become slower in movement and dizzy by acting on their opioid receptors.”

The findings of the new study were detailed in the most recent edition of the journal Current Biology.

Who should use Dark Spot Corrector? Our Dark Spot Corrector is the appropriate treatment option for anyone looking to help fade the appearance of dark spots, regardless of age or gender. While we formulated our product with the highest quality, safe ingredients, every person's skin is unique so it is best to test the product on a different skin area to make sure you react well to the ingredients.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/faqs

A different spot corrector actually made my dark spots MORE noticeable. Could this happen with your product? The reason many other products make your dark spots MORE noticeable is because they use harsh, potentially dangerous bleaching agents, which can seep into surrounding skin. This means that they can cause a white "ring" to form around the dark spot - which actually makes the spot "highlighted" and more obvious!

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/products/dark-spot-corrector

Our product won't cause this effect because it does not contain a bleaching agent. Active ingredients in Dark Spot Corrector work deep within the skin where dark spots start, to "break up" areas of hyperpigmentation and reduce melanin overproduction naturally.

How do I use Dark Spot Corrector? It should be used up to four times daily, depending on the color and size of your spots. Using a pea- or dime-sized amount, apply the treatment directly to your areas of hyperpigmentation. Because our skin's natural healing processes are most efficient at night, never forget to apply before bed!

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/about

Other spot correctors I've tried smell horrible, like chemicals. Does yours? Many other spot correctors smell like harsh chemicals because they're MADE with horrible chemicals. We, on the other hand, spent years actively searching for the most powerful natural ingredients in the world that can achieve the same (or even better) results as those harsh chemicals, without any of the risk or danger. Because ours is more natural, you won't experience the "ink" or "Clorox" smells so many other products have. Ours smells very lightly of plum and honey, due to its inclusion of the powerful Kakadu plum.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/faqs

I have oily, acne-prone skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector clog my pores or cause breakouts? Many products have a heavy cream base that makes skin feel oily and greasy. Instead, ours has a light gel base that dries quickly and absorbs into the layers of the epidermis - instead of sitting on top of your skin and clogging pores. This makes it ideal to use before makeup application or before applying your daily SPF moisturizer.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/products/dark-spot-corrector

I have very dry skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector irritate my skin or cause flaking like other products I've tried? The ingredients in our formula contain properties meant to moisturize and protect the skin, unlike other products whose harsh chemicals dry out and dehydrate the epidermis. Every person's skin is different - but most people using this product should notice a pleasant, non-greasy moisturizing effect.

Can I use Dark Spot Corrector around my eyes? Although our dark spot corrector is formulated with gentle, non-irritating ingredients, the skin around the eyes is significantly thinner than surrounding skin - making it much more delicate and sensitive. That's why it is best to use products around the eyes that are specifically formulated for that area.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/

Is there a money-back guarantee? Our mission at 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals is to create effective and affordable products that not only meet but exceed your expectations. We want to prove this to you. Test-drive our products for two months and feel confident in your decision. On top of that, our expert customer service team is always here for you to answer any questions you may have about the product.

Dr. Ellen Marmur, MD , Dermatology: Your body is constantly under attack from outside forces, and the skin is its greatest defender. It functions like Gore-tex, a high-tech outer sheath that protects us from temperature extremes, wind, and ultraviolet rays from the sun. It's a two-way barrier that not only retains water in the body but also acts as a water-resistant raincoat against too much water coming in. It's also our best shield against injury (bruises, cuts, and scrapes) and infection.

This incredible packaging contains us and keeps the body in balance by regulating temperature and providing insulation from heat and cold. For example, all the hair follicles are attached to tiny muscles that contract as a response to cold air, elevating hair on the body and trapping air around us, keeping the body warm like fur. When it's hot outside, cooling mechanisms kick into gear as the nervous system triggers the blood vessels and sweat glands to release heat as fast as possible. Overheated blood is pumped away from the heart and out to the skin, where the heat dissipates (which is why your skin becomes flushed). Sweating cools the skin by bringing moisture to the surface, where it evaporates in the air - instant air-conditioning. https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease): Your skin works to protect you in many ways. First, skin covers your entire body and provides waterproof protection. But skin does so much more than that!

Skin, a complex organ, is the largest organ in your body. It produces melanin, the brown pigment that protects against the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. It also contains special immune cells, called Langerhans cells that protect your body from potentially dangerous microbes. Skin contains lymph cells (lymphocytes) that protect you from infection. It contains sweat glands that help your body get rid of waste and maintain the correct body temperature. And, last but not least, your skin is rich in nerve cells that allow you to experience touch, which plays a key role in human emotions, including sexual attraction. https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

Other products I've tried gave me results at first, but then stopped working after a while. Will this happen with your product? The reason you may have experienced this with other products is because they may not have added enough of the active ingredients (usually to cut corners and save a buck), or they use harsh chemicals that cause an instant reaction but do not work in the long term. Instead, our formula is packed with ingredients that give you LASTING results, and the longer you use the product, the better results you'll experience.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/

Is it suitable for all skin types? Since our Dark Spot Corrector contains safe, natural ingredients that help regenerate your skin from the inside out, our unique formula can be used on every skin type without the risk of side effects. However, every person's skin is different, so results may vary.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/products/dark-spot-corrector

Can it be used on sensitive skin? Because our Dark Spot Corrector is formulated with natural, gentle ingredients, it is safe to use on even the most sensitive skin. However, those who know they have sensitive skin are always advised to use caution when using any new product for the first time.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/about

How do I know it's working? We always recommend that our patients take a "before" picture prior to their first use. Take your "after" photo about a month later and you can see the results for yourself! Our patients have reported a reduction in the color and size of the hyper-pigmented area, but since every person's skin is unique, every person's experience is slightly different.

Does 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals test on animals? Absolutely NOT. 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals adheres strictly to cruelty-free, animal-friendly practices. REEF FRIENDLY. Made with Natural ingredients.

          The 'rhythm' of writing   

[USA], Jul 1 (ANI): Turns out, Japanese writing is all about rhythm.

Researcher NONAKA Tetsushi from the Kobe University Graduate School of Human Development and Environment looked at the development of writing skills in Japanese first-grade students learning the hiragana script.

By quantifying their pen movements, he revealed the process of learning distinct temporal patterns of movement in such a way to differentiate a set of subtle features of each symbol. These aspects of handwriting development have been largely neglected in research carried out in Latin alphabet communities.

This study looked at the development of movement dynamics of handwriting in 1st graders at the Kobe University Elementary School who learned to write hiragana, a phonetic script used for Japanese. He examined how their movements were influenced by the social norms of the classroom environment in which those 1st graders participated over the first three months of the primary school.

During the study, the children were repeatedly encouraged to pay attention to the specific requirements for writing each character, including stroke endings, stroke order and rhythm of movement. While he observed individual variation in handwriting development among six students studying in the same classroom, two common trends were quantitatively demonstrated.

Firstly, the pen movements became clearly differentiated for each type of stroke ending (stop, sweep or jump). Secondly, a consistent temporal structure of movement gradually emerged for each stroke.

This demonstrates that the process of handwriting development as explained by Latin alphabet-based research - acquiring fine motor skills in hands, plus storing the shapes in the head - cannot fully explain the handwriting skill development process for hiragana script.

At least in this particular language community, learning the temporal pattern of movement corresponding to a letter seems highly important, based on which the invariant features of a letter--the traces of the specific temporal pattern of movement--can be discriminated as such.

The study also suggested that the process of learning to write by differentiating physical movements may be linked to a phenomenon specific to Chinese character-based cultures known as "air writing", when people unconsciously move their fingers while trying to recall a certain character.

The findings were published on June 13 in Developmental Psychobiology. (ANI)

          Is It Appropriate for Children to Get a Massage?   

Children and MassageLori O.
Elements Highpointe

"Absolutely! Child athletes are more and more frequently presenting with the same sports and repetitive stress injuries that adult athletes experience. Sports and orthopedic pediatric massage can help young athletes as well as their adult counterparts.  Also, massage has been shown to help ease the symptoms of ADHD, autism, and depression, all of which affect children."

Matt S.
Elements Westford

"Absolutely! As long as they have a parent/guardian consent form filled out beforehand, they can most certainly receive a massage. Some parents arrange a couples massage for their child's first session, which means a parent can receive a massage at the same time and in the same room as the child, which makes it less alienating and more comforting for the child.

"Having a child receive a massage is beneficial because it teaches them appropriate therapeutic touch, as well as teaching them how to relax and slow down in this fast-paced society. It also teaches them that massage can be an essential part of life, especially while growing and developing because massage can help soothe their muscles during growth spurts, relieve the soreness of "growing pains" and quiet their busy thoughts! It is also great for athletic children as it helps their muscles recover from an intense game or training and keep them performing optimally. So, essentially, it is beneficial both mentally AND physically!"

Launie T.
Elements Wilsonville

"We all have stress, children included.  With busy schedules, activities, school, peers and even growing, children’s bodies also experience a variety of stressors throughout the day.  From infancy to young adulthood, massage is a gentle yet effective way to bring balance to the whole body.

"Having children of my own, I have seen the positive effects of massage.  Not only has it relieved muscle pain and tension after athletic events and training, but it has alleviated headaches, promoted healthier sleep and had positive effects on behavioral changes and mood swings.  Massage stimulates the “rest and digest” part of the nervous system that everyone -- especially growing children with high energy levels -- could benefit from."

DeAnna R.
Elements Centennial

"Yes. Massage and other therapeutic touch therapies are an integral part of a healthy, supportive developmental diet. As children grow out of infancy, they receive less touch and more language to calm, nurture and redirect the child's behavior. Touch engages the peripheral nervous system, boosts the human immune system, communicates states of being, and provides a social experience whereby the child's needs are being 'appropriately' responded to which encourages a secure attachment, a feeling of safety and security, and allows the child to develop empathy as a resulting consequence."

Shannon L.
Elements Needham

"I think the power of healthy touch is wonderful to introduce at any age. It is important to understand that children's bones, organs, and so on are maturing.  Therefore introducing a deep tissue or trigger point massage may not be the best idea. Swedish might be best inducing a much needed state of relaxation, especially since kids these days seem to have very busy lives."

          What Are Some Effective Non-Traditional Headache Remedies?   

Trina S.
Elements Centennial

"Many headaches are caused by dehydration, so drink plenty of water throughout the day to prevent headaches.  Once you already have a headache, applying a cold pack to your forehead or to the back of the neck may help."

Megan B.
Elements Carmel Mountain

"There are different kinds of headaches and each has different non-traditional remedies that can help alleviate symptoms.

"For sinus headaches, lymphatic drainage around the jaw area with light pressure can be effective.

"For tension headaches receiving acupressure on the large intestine 4 pressure point can help. The root cause for tension headaches is typically the neck being slightly out of alignment. People who sleep on their belly are particularly at risk for these.

"Rebound headaches are typically caused by the overuse of painkillers. This condition can be helped with the use of acupuncture."

Angel W.
Elements Florence

"Massage of the neck, shoulders, scalp and feet always works for me and my clients."

Brittany H.
Elements Glendale

"Eucalyptus oil. Put a dab on your forehead, temples, back of neck and occipital area. Also, drink lots of fluids."

Jessica J.
Elements Lake Conroe

"Cold pack and dim lighting with the sounds of the ocean. Deep breaths and calm thoughts added with a light-pressured neck and scalp massage."

Bonnie V.
Elements Wilsonville

"It depends on the headache. If it is a migraine, when you first notice it coming on plunge your feet into ice cold water for a couple of minutes. This will draw blood away from your head -- migraines are vascular -- and pump it towards your feet, effectively eliminating or reducing the intensity of the migraine.

"For normal headaches, drink water (many headaches can be caused by dehydration). If you know it is a tension headache you can pinch the muscle on your shoulder and hold it for a few minutes.  This will relax that muscle which has pain patterns into the head.  You can also pinch the meaty part of your thumb, but I have had mixed results with this one.

"The best headache treatment is preventative.  If you are stressed take a few moments to breathe, walk for a few moments then go back to what you were doing. Relax."


          Why Is It So Important to Drink Water?   

Dennis Y.
Elements West Chester

"In general, the body benefits from proper hydration.  But after a massage it's especially important to drink lots of water.  Consuming water will help the kidneys and other organs process the various substances which move through our bodies on a regular basis.  Drinking water before and after a massage makes it easier for your therapist to perform deep work because the muscles are easier to manipulate. Think dry sponge versus wet sponge."

Alicia A.
Elements Costa Mesa

"Drinking water after massages helps the kidneys and pancreas process and flush toxins from the body after they've been released into bloodstream.  It also re-hydrates the muscles with new oxygenated cells to increase repair of muscle fibers after they've been massaged. And it can prevent you from getting sore the next morning. Especially after deep tissue massage, muscles get dehydrated. When muscles are dehydrated they get very sore and tight."

Colleen O.
Elements Louisville East

"Water is hugely important for all kinds of reasons.  It's safe to say that although many factors determine the percentages, our bodies are made primarily of water.  So when we aren't replenishing it on a regular basis, our body doesn't function as well as it could.

"Being dehydrated can sap your energy and make you feel tired and dizzy.  One of the biggest culprits of many headaches is actually dehydration.  Drinking the right amount of water for your body type can be a quick way to keep those headaches at bay.

"Drinking water is also great way to keep healthy-looking skin and can help with many digestive problems.  It's just a great way to keep our bodies functioning at peak performance."

Brandon H.
Elements Chandler/Ahwatukee

"All cellular function is based on water levels.  So keeping hydrated and drinking water regularly leads to a healthier body."

Tracey D.
Elements West Plano

"Because our bodies are at least 75% water, we use it up and need more to keep from becoming toxic. Dehydration makes you feel bad and over long periods of time causes many health problems."


          SIUE Alumna Named Among St. Louis Biz Journal’s Most Influential Women   

Cheryl Norton, SIUE alumna and member of the St. Louis Business Journal 2017 class of Most Influential Business Women.Southern Illinois University Edwardsville alumna Cheryl Norton has been named among the St. Louis Business Journal’s 2017 Most Influential Business Women, in recognition of her exceptional business leadership and community impact.

Norton is president of Missouri American Water, which provides high quality and reliable water and/or wastewater services to approximately 1.5 million people. Her responsibilities include creating a business strategy and corresponding budgets to ensure high levels of service, maintaining and investing in her company’s systems, development and safety of employees, and compliance with all local, state and federal laws and regulations.

“I was truly honored and humbled to be recognized,” Norton said. “I find the many aspects of my job to be both challenging and rewarding. I love being able to work on several things at one time and utilize my problem-solving skills on a daily basis. One of my favorite accomplishments, no matter what job I’m doing, is seeing people achieve more than they believed they could. People are amazing and can do great things. Sometimes you just have to show them that.”

Norton earned a bachelor’s in biological sciences in 1987 and a master’s in environmental studies in 1994, both from SIUE. According to Norton, her two academic programs, and notably, her service as a resident assistant on campus, fostered her future success.

“I grew up in a small Missouri town and felt at home at SIUE,” she said. “My undergraduate work prepared me for my first job, doing microbiology research for American Water in Belleville. I worked part-time for American Water while completing my bachelor’s, and then transitioned to full-time upon graduation. The environmental studies graduate program was the next logical stop for me, because it built on my bachelor’s and offered the flexibility I needed.”

The influential businesswoman says she loves a challenge. It’s what keeps her work new and interesting.

“I have been fortunate throughout my career to work with great people, and been given opportunities to learn and grow,” Norton said. “I enjoy learning about and giving back to the communities in which I work and live. It seems there is never enough time to participate in everything that interests me, so I try to choose where I can make the most impact.”

To aspiring leaders, her advice is to remember that people are always watching.

“Make sure to be accountable for your mistakes and treat people with respect,” she emphasized. “It’s okay to be yourself, but be open to feedback — even when it’s hard to hear. Transparency will generate more goodwill than you could ever imagine. Knowledge really isn’t power. Share it, and see how much your team can accomplish!”

Norton, and the 2017 class of Most Influential Business Women, will be featured in the Aug. 11 issue of the St. Louis Business Journal.

          Career Interviews   
I was reading Robbie's MIT MBA blog and he had a brilliant idea.

Robbie is doing his MBA from the SDM in MIT.

What is the SDM?

The System Design and Management (SDM) program was created at MIT to educate future technical leaders in architecting, engineering, and designing complex products and systems and to give them the leadership and management skills necessary to do that successfully across organizations.

Robbie has 10 yrs of experience hence he is suited for this course. Where can he go from here? He says:

my career path is leading me to be a CIO, CTO, VP of Engineering, or CEO/Founder. But how do I pick the one I want to do? The CIO role is typically quite different than CTO or VP of Engineering.

He faces a fundamental problem which is true at any level. What exactly does a particular job consist of?

Even with all the classes I attend and the speakers I listen to, I get very little information on the specifics of what it is like being in a particular position at a company.


When I decided upon "business model innovation" as my career choice sometime back I had trouble understanding what exactly that the job would be in terms of a day-to-day profile.

I found this great blogger who calls himself "yes". He wants to remain anonymous but provides some valuable understanding into his job. He is a technical guy with a PhD who is into "business development".

He starts off with a post on What to do with your Phd?

You spent some years in Lab (because I know nothing outside of Biology Ph.D.'s, No idea what the rest of you do).

Now what?

He then goes on to provide a list of options for the job possibilities including Business Development, Marketing and Sales.

His blog provides me a good understanding of what it means to commercialize technologies and various nitty gritties like the legal stuff, tech transfers from Universities etc.

Now coming back to Robbie, he comes with a brilliant solution:

So to help me decide what position I'm best suited for, I'm doing several "career interviews." I'm cold-emailing various executives around the Cambridge area and asking for an hour of their time to talk about their job and career. I'll ask a variety of questions about their role, the skills and commitment required, how they obtained the position, among others. One of the last questions I'll ask is if they have any recommendations for additional people I should contact. This also will be a good networking opportunity.

I think I need to do this. There is a good number of tech firms in Adelaide. It has a Tech park and the MSTC Commercialization course which means that a lot of people in the "innovation game" will be attending it.

My Marketing Professor, David Corkindale, provided me the avenue to jump into this field. As I was working on a Marketing Individual project he provided me the idea to do a project on business models for tech firms which conviced me that this is the career I need to pursue.

I can use this help in finding the right people to talk to. Will update you soon on my "Career Interviews". Thanks Robbie.

          Will I get in? And if I do, will I get merit aid?   
Here's the deal - My ACT is above average at a 34 (35E 31M 34R 34S). My GPA is 3.7uw/3.81w. BUT I'm graduating a year early (yes, I will have a high school diploma), and I don't know how that will impact my chances. I will only have taken precalculus by the time I come, and the website says calc is highly recommended. I'm taking 7 AP classes next year, including chemistry and biology, and I want to be a bioinformatics/molecular bio major. I think I'm going to apply RD - my weighted gpa will be much higher if I do. I'm heavily involved in music (all-state every year) and volunteer at a hospital and a humane society (about 100 hrs. combined). I also have a disability which is why my gpa isn't super high- it went from <3.6 my freshman year to >3.8 my sophomore year. I really, really want to go to RPI, and I would apply ED if not for my gpa. According to the financial aid estimator, I would get ~$35000 a year in aid to bring it down to ~$33000. Unfortunately, this is about 15k more than my family can afford/year. Is there any way I would get a merit scholarship with my stats/early graduation?

750 MIllion people worldwide are iron deficient. Many do not have bio-available iron.

In one way or another, iron is essential to most forms of life. It is the most abundant transition-metal in living organisms and is endowed with unique properties that enable it to both initiate and participate in certain paramount chemical reactions. Though iron is very important in the metabolism of many life forms, in humans its chief usefulness is addressed to redox mechanisms, of which the most important is breathing.

http://rothschildonprobiotics.com/Biology-of-Lactoferrin.html

For our ancestors, SBO Probiotics were naturally provided in their diet from the rich soil that coated their harvested vegetables. These microscopic probiotics are still present in soils that have not been commercially over-used and tainted with pesticides. Since most of us eat commercially grown food, our diets are deficient in SBO Probiotics.

To rid your body of viruses, parasites, fungi, and mold for good you need to establish the symbiotic bacterial teamwork in your intestinal tract. Now your immune system can unleash itself upon the invaders arriving daily in your food, drink or air.

The evolutionary transition from unicellular life forms to multicellular (communal) life forms represented an intellectually and technically profound high point in the creation of the biosphere.

In the world of unicellular protozoa, each cell is an innately intelligent, independent being, adjusting its biology to its own perception of the environment.

However, when cells join together to form multicellular "communities," it required that the cells establish a complex social intercourse.

http://www.life-enthusiast.com/index/Articles/Lipton

Through sheer will power and intent, consciousness can attempt to over-ride a subconscious tape. Usually such efforts are met with varying degrees of resistance, since the cells are obligated to adhere to the subconscious program. In some cases the tensions between conscious will power and subconscious programs can result in serious neurological disorders.

For example, consider the fate of Australian concert pianist David Helfgott whose story was presented in the film Shine. David was programmed by his father, a survivor of the holocaust, to not succeed, for success would make him vulnerable in that he would stand out from others.

          How to Get Sick > Part 3 > Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #127   
Continuing our discussion of all the things we do that bring on illness in our society. In this episode we talk about: 1. Don't breast feed your baby. Mothers, consider breastfeeding your children if you don't want them to risk the trauma of numerous childhood diseases and if you don't want to pay the hospital bills. It will also reduce your risk of developing breast cancer by 25 percent, and it may lower the risk of postpartum depression! Mother's milk contains cells that attack harmful bacteria in the baby's system, and it is able to form antibodies that destroy invading viruses as well. Mother's milk is the Maker's perfect food for babies, delivered in the close bonds of maternal intimacy.10 2. Get tattoos. Scripture warns against piercing the skin. (See Leviticus 19:28.) Body piercing and tattoos can easily introduce potentially deadly infections and toxic foreign substances into the body and bloodstream. Some health providers warn that even tiny puncture wounds might block important electrical nerve impulses just under the skin. 3. Get all of your immunization shots. Despite massive media and government public relations campaigns to the contrary, certain childhood immunization injections may pose considerable risks to children. Most adults today received one to five immunizations in childhood, but schoolchildren today receive an average of twenty-two or more immunizations-most of them administered while the brain and nervous system are still developing! An epidemic of juvenile autism and other neurological and developmental disorders sweeping through America's school-age children generally coincides with the introduction of certain mandatory immunizations. A growing body of scientific and medical research appears to link this dangerous health trend to these childhood immunizations. Vijendra K. Singh, Ph.D., an eminent neuroimmunologist from the Department of Biology and Biotechnology Center at Utah State University, hypothesized in research published internationally "that a measles virus-induced autoimmune response is a causal factor in autism, whereas HHV-6 via co-infection may contribute to pathophysiology of the disorder. Although as yet unproven, I think it is an excellent working hypothesis to explain autism, arid it may also help us understand why some children show autistic regression after the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) immunization.11 Dr. Singh's findings seem to Confirm the results of a similar study published in the Lancet in 1998 by Dr. Andrew Wakefield and co-workers of the Royal Free Hospital in London, indicating a possible link between MMR vaccination, Crohn's disease of the bowel, and autism.12 Most states allow philosophical and religious exemptions from mandatory immunization programs should you decide this is the way to go. 4. Travel in airplanes often. Some people who spend a lot of time at high altitudes experience problems with infertility and oxygen production in the body. The body adapts well to high altitudes for short periods of time, but not for long periods. Animals dwelling at heights of thirteen to fourteen thousand feet have much more difficulty conceiving and instinctively return to lower pastures for breeding. Some researchers believe the atmospheric pressures and radiation to which airplane travelers are exposed are the equivalent of hundreds of CAT scans and pose the greatest oxidative stress on the human body.13 (Who wants to be trapped in a small room with hundreds of sneezing, coughing people?)

          Mission Summary   
Given the complexity of the logistics involved in the Submarine Ring of Fire 2012 expedition, an apt summary of the cruise is “Whatever could go wrong didn’t go wrong”. Twelve dives at nine sites were successfully made, with 98.5 hours of bottom time and 164 samples for geology, chemistry, biology and microbiology.
          Searching for New Pharmaceutical Drugs from Hydrothermal Vent Animals and Microbes   
Natural products chemists have begun to evaluate recently discovered deep-sea vent organisms as a source of small molecule natural products with medicinally-relevant properties. For this exploratory expedition, we will rely on studies of the biology and water chemistry of the targeted vent fields to plan our collections.
          Hydrothermal Vent Plumes   
The seafloor of the Northeast Lau Basin is one the most volcanically active areas known to scientists. Magma from deep within the crust upwells to the seafloor to form long ridges and symmetrical volcanoes. Cooling of the magma creates seafloor hot springs (hydrothermal vents), which construct mineral deposits, nurture unique biological communities, alter deep-sea circulation patterns, and profoundly influence ocean chemistry and biology.
          Mission Plan   
Submarine Ring of Fire 2012: NE Lau Basin is the latest in a series of expeditions to explore the submarine volcanoes of the Western Pacific. Our primary objective will be to explore and to characterize the unique ecosystems in the NE Lau basin through examination of their geology, chemistry, and macro- and micro- biology.

          The mother of ecology   

Biology Prof. Kay Etheridge sits at a small table in her office, flipping through the colorful illustrations in a large, hardcover book about the artist and early ecologist Maria Sibylla Merian.

“Looking at her images is endlessly fascinating,” says Etheridge.

Merian was born 370 years ago, and this year is the tercentenary anniversary of her death.  The book, Maria Sibylla Merian: Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium, reprints Merian’s original work, published in 1705, and includes new commentary from scholars. Etheridge was the only scientist and non-Dutch author to write commentary for the facsimile volume. Recently, The New York Times and The Atlantic wrote about Merian, referencing Etheridge’s research.

Etheridge is quick to say that although Merian was an impressive woman for her time, her findings weren’t exceptional in spite of being a woman. They were interesting in their own right.

“In 1699 [Merian] went to South America for two years and studied tropical insects and the plants on which they lived. She brought the insects back into the plantation house where she lived and raising them from caterpillars so she could study their life cycle,” she says.

Kay Etheridge“Sometimes she would wait all night for an adult moth or butterfly to come out of their cocoons, recording their metamorphosis with her precise artwork in in written notes. What some people who study her from the [lens of] art history didn’t know is, it’s hard to raise caterpillars. This is where the biology comes [into play]. Only a small percentage of caterpillars live to be adults, so she had to be persistent.”

Merian was influenced by her publishing family and her stepfather, who was also an artist. But what made her work unique was a simple, yet significant, detail. She drew ecologically related plants and animals together, instead of separately. According to Etheridge, at the time there existed decorative paintings of plants and animals together, but for the most part, they were species with no real connection in the environment.

“The thing I write about as a biologist that people haven’t emphasized before, is [Merian] studied the insects on the plants that they lived on,” says Etheridge. “Everybody before her would have books on plants, or books on insects, but they wouldn’t put them together. This was the first time they were put together in the same ecological communities. She created ecological communities in her artwork and described relationships in her writing.”

It was painstaking work. Merian had to know what the insects ate and then collect those plants so she could rear the insects to adulthood. At the time Merian wrote her first book on insects she was 32 and, in addition to her insects, raising a one-year-old and nine-year-old. “She wasn’t rich,” says Etheridge. “She was doing this while being a housewife and mother.”

Etheridge has been doing her own painstaking work, combing through Merian’s illustrations and written descriptions to determine the accuracy of her 17th century findings—essentially fact checking the biology in Merian’s work. “The next question is, how did she become this person,” Etheridge says. “I looked into her background and history, trying to figure out her working methods and understand her impact on other naturalists. I make the argument that she was the mother of ecology.”


Like Merian, Etheridge is a scientist and artist. She took her first painting class when she was on her first sabbatical at Gettysburg and fell in love with it. Her paintings decorate her office walls. Etheridge can appreciate the detail of Merian’s work and process, which she explains consisted of going for walks, feeding her caterpillars, painting, engraving, and then printing—learning about nature and completing every step herself.

Merian drawingEtheridge plans to travel to Nuremberg to visit the house where Merian lived and worked and see a historic garden where she collected some of her subjects. In early June, she was at a new conference in Amsterdam that she co-organized, an international symposium on Maria Sibylla Merian for those who study her work. About 200 art historians and other scholars attended. Etheridge contributed a plenary presentation, speaking from a biologist’s perspective. In addition to helping to create the conference, Etheridge is also a founder of The Maria Sibylla Merian Society, which is an international group that aims to bring artists, historians, and scientists together in their study of Merian.

“It takes different specialists to study Merian—there’s biography involved, studies of the artwork, culture and time period—but it takes a biologist to look for the scientific information,” she says.

Etheridge first began to focus on Merian after the fall of 2000 when she was teaching a class in London. “I created the course concentrated on British art and science, but as I read more and more I ran across [Merian] and ultimately kept circling back and became completely obsessed with her.”

This fall, Etheridge will co-teach her interdisciplinary First-Year Seminar course, “Wonders of Nature and Artifice: The Renaissance Quest for Knowledge,” with art and art history Prof. Felicia Else. Students build their own art exhibit in Schmucker Art Gallery as part of the course—“because this is how people learn about the world,” Etheridge says. She believes making interdisciplinary connections, particularly between art and science, can lead to new discoveries.

“Making connections between art and science is so important,” she says. “When you have a foot in both disciplines, or you’re working with collaborators from different fields, you make interesting findings on the intersecting edges. That’s where some of the most fascinating work is done.”


          Biology Prof. returns to Malawi 25 years later on Fulbright   

Kittelberger

Prof. Matthew Kittelberger graduated from Harvard University without a clear sense of what he wanted to do in his career, so he decided to join the Peace Corps. He taught science, math, English, and agriculture at an all-boys boarding high school in the country of Malawi in southern Africa.

“And it was there that I discovered the joys, and the challenges, of being a teacher," he said.

That was in 1992. Now, Kittelberger is planning to return to Malawi with his family, this time on a Fulbright Scholar award. For nine months starting in January, he will be teaching science and developing science curricula at Chancellor College of the University of Malawi in Zomba. At Chancellor, Kittelberger says 70 percent of students studying biology end up pursuing careers as secondary school teachers. By preparing these future teachers, he hopes to impact the nature of science education in Malawi.

“I’ve always wanted to connect with Malawi again in some way,” he said.

School children in MalawiWhen Kittelberger was putting together his application for the Fulbright, he reached out to one of his former advisees, Christine Serwan ’13. Kittelberger helped Serwan when she was applying to the Peace Corps during her senior year. Serendipity placed Serwan in Malawi, and now Kittelberger was curious to learn her perspective.

“Pretty much from day one of my knowing I was heading to Malawi, Dr. Kittelberger started talking about how he could reconnect to Malawi, and maybe even get back there after all this time away,” said Serwan.

“We stayed in touch via email while she was in Malawi and spent a lot of time talking about her experience and my experiences in the country,” Kittelberger said. “It became clear that a lot of the challenges of teaching high school science in Malawi hadn’t changed all that much in the intervening years.”

That got Kittelberger thinking about how he might work on that. He figured the logical place to start would be with teachers.

“Better teacher training means improving Malawi’s capacity,” said Kittelberger. “Improving the quality of teachers teaching secondary science could go a long way.”

“The students of Malawi are beyond lucky they are going to have someone like [Kittelberger] teaching them,” said Serwan. “He even still remembers some Chichewa, the local language. I'm excited to see where his journey takes him this time and hopefully will be able to visit him while he is there.”

Their Malawi bond is an extension of the two-way teaching-mentoring relationship that began at Gettysburg. “I can honestly say I would not be where I am today had I not had [him] as an advisor and mentor, and I am so glad to be able to stay connected to him now as colleagues through our experiences in Malawi,” said Serwan.

One of the teaching methods Kittelberger said he hopes to bring to Malawi is a focus on active learning. In Malawi, the traditional British model of teaching is lecture-based and primarily focused on memorization.

“[In the United States], science education has moved away from lecturing and passive pedagogy where students sit and listen,” said Kittelberger. “Students learn better when they are active participants in their learning. The hope is to merge some of my experience with more active learning pedagogies with the curriculum [in Malawi].”

In Malawi, Kittelberger—whose research focuses on the evolution of brain circuits involved in vocal and social behavior—will teach biochemistry and animal physiology. While he is there, Kittelberger hopes to make his way to the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to study cichlid fish. They are a family of fish from which scientists have learned a great deal about evolution, including the evolution of social behavior.

Kittelberger

But Malawians themselves haven’t been as involved in this work, explains Kittelberger, despite the fact that Malawian cichlids are renowned worldwide as a model system for understanding evolution.

“If I can model some of that for the students who I’m teaching, who are then going off to teach in high schools, they will have a better understanding of how to use local resources to do hands-on biology.”

When Kittelberger returns home, he anticipates the experience will also impact his teaching at Gettysburg.

“[At Gettysburg], we think a lot about how to effectively teach students [from different backgrounds],” he said. “And by having to wrestle with that [in Malawi], I’ll be able to use those lessons when I’m thinking about students and the different strategies I can use here.”

Kittelberger is the third member of Gettysburg’s faculty to earn a prestigious Fulbright Scholar award in the past three years.


The Fulbright Program, which aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries, is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government; it is overseen by The United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Fulbright alumni include 58 Nobel Laureates, 82 Pulitzer Prize winners, 31 MacArthur Fellows, 16 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients, and thousands of leaders across the private, public and non-profit sectors.



          Marketing vs. science: Applying the same process to a different set of questions   

At Gettysburg, a liberal arts degree can translate to a variety of careers, regardless of what you decide to major in.

Laura GambinoExample: Laura Gambino ’14. When Gambino graduated from Gettysburg with a degree in biology, she was originally interested in pursuing ecological research, inspired in part by a vertebrate zoology class she took junior year and a summer field experience at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary. She decided to pursue a master’s degree in applied ecology from Stony Brook University, which she completed last year. Then, she switched gears. “I was looking for a career where I could continue to grow my [data science] skills,” she said.

After graduating from Stony Brook, Gambino completed a market research fellowship at AOL. Now, Gambino has a position at Omnicom Media Group, a marketing and advertising agency, as Senior Analyst on their Primary Research and Insights team in New York City. Gambino is using her data science skills to collect and analyze data to inform marketing strategies and advertising.

“I’ve really been enjoying it,” she said. “It’s a new and different challenge.”

Gambino discovered that marketing flexes muscles similar to the ones she used for scientific research. She completed several science projects over the years. In high school, she conducted research on protecting wild and captive clam populations with Dr. Bassem Allam at Stony Brook, where she’d eventually attend graduate school. The following summer, Gambino continued working in Allam’s lab, studying the immune response to disease in oysters. That experience led to Gambino co-authoring a published paper. In graduate school, Gambino’s research centered on creating data models to understand hummingbird migratory patterns, working with Dr. Laura Graham and her advisor, Dr. Catherine Graham. She presented her findings at the North American Ornithological Conference in Washington, D.C.

“My current job is using statistics to understand consumers instead of hummingbirds, but it’s the same thing when you get down to it,” she said. “You try to figure out why people buy certain items and services or how to make a good ad that captures someone’s attention. I take data points from surveys [and other data] and dig into statistics to understand those factors.”

In addition to her projects at Stony Brook, Gambino was involved in curating the vertebrate collection at Gettysburg. Working closely with Biology Prof. Ryan Kerney, Gambino and another student, Sara Ketelsen ’14, curated, labeled, and repaired specimens.   “[Prof. Kerney] was great because he got me to think outside of the box and solve problems you don’t see every day.” In biostatistics with Biology Prof. Kazuo Hiraizumi, Gambino said she found the confidence to pursue statistics in her graduate work and career.

Even though she’d never expected it to, each of these experiences have helped her in her career in market research.

“You can’t ask hummingbirds questions,” she joked. “[In marketing], people don’t know the subconscious reasons why they did something, so it’s about uncovering the motivations for why people do things. You use that same scientific process, applied to a different set of questions and problems.”

          Could studying deaf horses shed light on treatment in humans?   

Over the years, Chemistry Prof. Koren Lipsett has owned and rescued horses. Today, they are a focus of her research on deafness in humans.

“My research lab focuses on genomic studies so we can understand human disease,” said Lipsett.

Prof. LipsettSo far, Lipsett and her students have looked at blind cats, fibroblast growth factor (hair length) in cattle, and for the past seven years, deafness in horses. They hope by researching these issues and genetic diseases in large mammals, it will help researchers better understand how to treat human genetic disorders, like congenital blindness and deafness.

Suzanne E. DiNello-Schleicher ’10, a biology and chemistry double major who is today a veterinarian, was the inspiration behind the horse project. One day in Lipsett’s lab, she was doing some preliminary research on the Internet and came across a story about a deaf colt.

“Because she’s a horse person and a vet person, she said, ‘maybe we can pursue this,’” said Lipsett. “Well it turns out the family that owned that particular horse also had the parents and siblings in this pedigree of Spanish Mustangs. Not just one offspring was deaf. There were two deaf offspring that came from the same stallion and two different mares. So that started the project.”

Working with larger mammals has its benefits, Lipsett says. For one, large mammals, as opposed to mice and rats, live longer. If, during transitional research, researchers are completing a treatment study, this allows scientists to study long-term implications. It’s humane: Lipsett uses hair plucked from the horse’s mane. It’s convenient: she uses her own horse and horses from the SPCA as experimental controls. She is currently working with a family from Virginia who owned deaf horses with white coats and blue eyes—the phenotype that studies have shown to correlate with deafness in other animals, like the Siberian Husky.

This knowledge helped Lipsett’s lab narrow down their focus to a candidate gene called the KIT gene.

Prof. Lipsett in the lab

“In [other cases of mammals] that had deafness, white pigmentation, and blue eyes, it has come down to the KIT gene,” said Lipsett. “That particular gene is complex, but that’s not the only one that has been found—there are 5 or 6 genes that we identified as candidate genes. And our job is to methodically go through, sequencing those genes, to see if we can find the mutation.”

The process involves examining the gene’s exons, the segments of the DNA that contain the coding information, or set of instructions, that translate to the protein of interest, for example.

Benjamin Gantz ’16 was responsible for examining exon-21 in the KIT gene. They ran into several issues with designing primers, which is the first step to sequencing a gene.

“Ben got to a point where we understood where the problem was, and by the time he graduated we a had a good understanding of what to do next,” said Lipsett.

“Ben would say, ‘wow, I’m doing real science,’ and I’d say, ‘You've been doing real science the whole time!’ Because you need to think outside the box. There’s no canned answer.”

“Many students have worked on this project before me. It was amazing to be able to pick up where they left off and continue this research,” echoed Gantz. “In independent research labs like Dr. Lipsett's, you are determining the answers to questions that no one on the planet knows. Other scientists may use our research to further their own understanding or study, but our findings will be a starting point for them.”

Over the years, several students have worked on pieces of the project that have been published, like Kaytie Innamorati ’14, who is currently conducting research on Alzheimer’s Disease as a Ph.D. candidate at Drexel University. She is listed as a co-author on the abstract, “Determining the genetic basis of equine deafness via candidate gene studies.” Also, Alecia Achimovich ’16, a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Virginia, is a co-author with Kaytie on a recent abstract.

Prof. Koren Lipsett working in the lab

Today, Lipsett says the research is at the point where they have narrowed down which genes to focus on, and now it’s about consolidating the data order to identify a putative gene mutation. As with the blind cat study, the next step will be to explore the mechanism of pathology that will help define how the gene mutation translated to disease symptoms like blindness or deafness.

“We care about this because we can directly correlate it to human studies,” said Lipsett. “The more we understand the gene function in a mammal model, the more likely we can understand the equivalent function in humans. Then, we can apply that knowledge to characterize and potentially treat the genetic disorder.”

A biological career pathway

Lipsett didn’t start working with DNA until she came to Gettysburg. But looking at her journey, the path to that research seemed inevitable.

“I loved biochemistry in college,” she said. “I didn’t do genomics, I did protein studies. It’s related to the biological system, and that’s what’s exciting to me. My work evolved slowly, as in any research career. You don’t necessarily stay in the same track, but your research takes you down new tracks and lets you solve cool new problems.”

Prof. Koren LipsettDuring Lipsett’s postdoctoral research at Johns Hopkins University, she studied metabolic pathways at the genomic level and how specific genes, and the gene products, participate in a given biological pathway. She and her colleagues worked on identifying the gene corresponding to an enzyme involved in the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway in fungus, furthering their understanding of the pathways in natural product biosynthesis. For example, aflatoxins are a family of carcinogenic toxins that are produced by fungi and can be found contaminating grain and peanuts (peanut butter). Aflatoxin can cause liver cancer. In the United States, we screen our crops for the contaminant, but other countries might not.

“My interest is studying these pathways,” she said. Because nature produces antifungal, anticancer and antibacterial agents, she asks questions like, What structural features of the molecule inhibit growth, and How can we modify and make a better antifungal [agent]?

“By applying knowledge gained from understanding the biosynthetic pathway, and the genes involved in that pathway, one can learn from nature and perhaps make the next new therapeutic drug based on that knowledge,” she said. “Learning from nature is really cool!”

Lipsett describes herself as “jumping” into mitochondrial DNA. Her mitochondrial genomic studies began with looking at genomic variations in mitochondrial DNA, some of which have been identified as causing mitochondrial myopathies.

Plucking Patent

This past January, Lipsett received some exciting news: A letter notifying her that she was issued a United States patent for the “Isolation and Characterization of a Single Mitochondron.”

Lipsett explained that one characteristic of mitochondria is that it contains multiple copies of the mitochondrial genome, and each cell can contain many mitochondria.

“If there is a mutation in one copy of the genome, and there are 100 copies total, the other 99 copies are fine,” she said. “So why should one copy interfere with the cell?” Her questions led to studies to learn more about how that one modified copy becomes the predominant version, and therefore, causative of mitochondrial disease symptoms.

She and her colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designed a technique using what is described as “optical tweezers” that can trap and then isolate a single mitochodrion using an infrared laser.  

Lipsett decided to apply for the patent after speaking with one of her former research students.

“Christian Bauer ’97, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, went to get his master’s in forensic science,” said Lipsett. Bauer continued his education and became a patent attorney. “He was visiting to speak with students for a career panel, and he said, ‘apply for a patent—that’s intellectual property!’”

Lipsett switched gears and began examining nuclear—as opposed to the mitochondrial—genomic variations. During a sabbatical at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, her research path transitioned to examining pedigrees of large mammals in order to identify the gene responsible for a specific disease.

“I like learning new tools for finding that needle in the haystack, that Eureka moment,” she said. “We haven’t found it yet in the deafness project, but we’ve gathered enough information from this deaf horse study to think it’s more complex than just one gene.”

          Reproductive strategy, spawning induction, spawning temperatures and early life history of captive sicklefin chub Macrhybopsis meeki   

Macrhybopsis reproduction and propagule traits were studied in the laboratory using two temperature regimes and three hormone treatments to determine which methods produced the most spawns. Only sicklefin chub Macrhybopsis meeki spawned successfully although sturgeon chub Macrhybopsis gelida released unfertilized eggs. All temperature and hormone treatments produced M. meeki spawns, but two treatments had similar success rates at 44 and 43%, consisting of a constant daily temperature with no hormone added, or daily temperature fluctuations with hormone added to the water. Spawns consisted of multiple successful demersal circular swimming spawning embraces interspersed with circular swims without embraces. The most spawns observed for one female was four and on average, 327 eggs were collected after each spawn. The water-hardened eggs were semi-buoyant and non-adhesive, the first confirmation of this type of reproductive guild in the Missouri River Macrhybopsis sp. From spawn, larvae swam vertically until 123 accumulated degree days (° D) and 167° D for consumption of first food. Using average water speed and laboratory development time, the predicted drift distance for eggs and larvae could be 468–592 km in the lower Missouri River. Results from this study determined the reproductive biology and early life history of Macrhybopsis spp. and provided insight into their population dynamics in the Missouri River.

          Nest-site selection and nest success of an Arctic-breeding passerine, Smith's Longspur, in a changing climate   

Despite changes in shrub cover and weather patterns associated with climate change in the Arctic, little is known about the breeding requirements of most passerines tied to northern regions. We investigated the nesting biology and nest habitat characteristics of Smith's Longspurs (Calcarius pictus) in 2 study areas in the Brooks Range of Alaska, USA. First, we examined variation in nesting phenology in relation to local temperatures. We then characterized nesting habitat and analyzed nest-site selection for a subset of nests (n = 86) in comparison with paired random points. Finally, we estimated the daily survival rate of 257 nests found in 2007–2013 with respect to both habitat characteristics and weather variables. Nest initiation was delayed in years with snow events, heavy rain, and freezing temperatures early in the breeding season. Nests were typically found in open, low-shrub tundra, and never among tall shrubs (mean shrub height at nests = 26.8 ± 6.7 cm). We observed weak nest-site selection patterns. Considering the similarity between nest sites and paired random points, coupled with the unique social mating system of Smith's Longspurs, we suggest that habitat selection may occur at the neighborhood scale and not at the nest-site scale. The best approximating model explaining nest survival suggested a positive relationship with the numbers of days above 21°C that an individual nest experienced; there was little support for models containing habitat variables. The daily nest survival rate was high (0.972–0.982) compared with that of most passerines in forested or grassland habitats, but similar to that of passerines nesting on tundra. Considering their high nesting success and ability to delay nest initiation during inclement weather, Smith's Longspurs may be resilient to predicted changes in weather regimes on the breeding grounds. Thus, the greatest threat to breeding Smith's Longspurs associated with climate change may be the loss of low-shrub habitat types, which could significantly change the characteristics of breeding areas.


          Western bats as a reservoir of novel Streptomyces species with antifungal activity   

At least two-thirds of commercial antibiotics today are derived from Actinobacteria, more specifically from the genus Streptomyces. Antibiotic resistance and new emerging diseases pose great challenges in the field of microbiology. Cave systems, in which actinobacteria are ubiquitous and abundant, represent new opportunities for the discovery of novel bacterial species and the study of their interactions with emergent pathogens. White-nose syndrome is an invasive bat disease caused by the fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans, which has killed more than six million bats in the last 7 years. In this study, we isolated naturally occurring actinobacteria from white-nose syndrome (WNS)-free bats from five cave systems and surface locations in the vicinity in New Mexico and Arizona, USA. We sequenced the 16S rRNA region and tested 632 isolates from 12 different bat species using a bilayer plate method to evaluate antifungal activity. Thirty-six actinobacteria inhibited or stopped the growth of P. destructans, with 32 (88.9%) actinobacteria belonging to the genus Streptomyces. Isolates in the genera Rhodococcus, Streptosporangium, Luteipulveratus, and Nocardiopsis also showed inhibition. Twenty-five of the isolates with antifungal activity against P. destructans represent 15 novel Streptomyces spp. based on multilocus sequence analysis. Our results suggest that bats in western North America caves possess novel bacterial microbiota with the potential to inhibit P. destructans.

          'Healing Children': A Surgeon's Take On What Kids Need   
For parents, the thought of a child being sick or hurt can be a heart-stopper. Fortunately, for those who do confront such realities, there are doctors like Kurt Newman . Newman is president and CEO of Children's National Health System , known as Children's National, in Washington, D.C. He started there as a surgeon more than 30 years ago. In his memoir , Healing Children: A Surgeon's Stories From The Frontiers Of Pediatric Medicine, he argues that children are not just smaller, softer adults, and that the differences matter for their treatment. This interview has been edited for length and clarity. Interview Highlights Medically speaking, how are children distinct from adults? It starts with size. In some cases, you need special equipment, or you might need special medications that work differently on children. Their biology is different. They're more resilient. They bounce back. They heal better. And then there's a whole idea about development — for example, the developing brain. You

          Comment on Adani: trouble on all fronts by Ikonoclast   
<a href="#comment-279923" rel="nofollow">@Simon Fowler </a> Thanks for the insightful comments. I did write of "genuine democratic socialism, or a collapse into barbarism and environmental catastrophe." I do apprehend both (category) possibilities and of course barbarism, anarchy etc. could be any of a thousand varieties and variants so this leaves open the many possibilities you talked about. The exact form of democratic socialism is open too and will be technologically and materially molded with feedbacks both ways as these factors interact with human biology and human agency. On the matter of categories, some categories may be binary. We create categories in an attempt to understand the world. Possibilities within these categories may be boundless. Hopefully, our categories are empirically based and pragmatically useful and not simply arbitrary. Historical moral advances hold out hope that we may make more advances. State-sanctioned slavery has been abolished or largely so. This was a great advance notwithstanding the fact that other forms of slavery still exist. Rather than a "moral slippery slope" existing (where we decline from some golden age - and how was that attained?), it seems a moral ramp exists which we can slowly climb up over the centuries. I haven't given up on true socialism yet. How that "moral ramp" might exist or be made and be made operative is outside this topic of course. But the trend away from monopolisable fossil fuels - existing in natural and hard to access "fuel dumps" - and a movement to ubiquitous sunlight, easy for all to access as an energy source, may have an intrinsic socialism-favouring element to it. The air and the sunlight may be the one commons which all people resist the enclosure of by "owners", by capitalists. The movement to becoming "prosumers", "producer-consumers" would appear to be a socialism-favouring development.

Milan Institute Celebrates 30 Years and Over 35,000 Graduates

Visalia, CA – October 20, 2015 – The Milan Institute and Milan Institute of Cosmetology school group will celebrate its 30-year anniversary in October 2015. All Milan campuses located throughout the western and southwestern United States will celebrate the event with fun activities and refreshments for students, faculty and staff. The anniversary marks 30 years of providing quality career training in the fields of beauty, massage, healthcare, business, information technology and energy. To date, over 35,000 students have graduated from the Milan school group.

 

Milan Institute opened its first campus, Golden State Business College, in October 1985. The school was located in Visalia, California, in the heart of the Central Valley and only offered career training in court reporting. Golden State Business College was opened by James M. Yasuda, O.D., a well-known optometrist within the community. About his decision to open a career training school, Dr. Yasuda recalls “I had an empty building and needed to do something with it. At the time, I was reading a book by Napoleon Hill. In it, the author said that the key to building a big business is to find a need and fill it. And that’s exactly what I did.”

 

Shortly after Dr. Yasuda’s son, Gary Yasuda, graduated with a B.S. in Economics and Biology from UCLA, Dr. Yasuda asked him to return home to Visalia to help operate the school. “When Gary first started working, he didn’t know a lot about career schools,” said Dr. Yasuda, thinking back to the original school. “He had to learn a lot on his own, but he never gave up – he didn’t quit. I’ve got to hand it to him.” Since then, Gary Yasuda has grown to become a leader in the career school industry and was one of the first recipients of the prestigious STAR Award from the California Association of Private Postsecondary Schools.

 

As president of Milan Institute, Gary Yasuda expanded the school group in the number of campuses, markets and career training programs offered. Today, there are 19 Milan campuses located throughout California, Nevada, Idaho and Texas. In January 2009, Dr. Yasuda officially retired from the board of directors and passed all ownership over to his son Gary Yasuda. The company has remained family-owned for the past 30 years.

 

“It has been a wonderful experience to lead the Milan Institute team for so many years,” states Gary Yasuda. “To see our first class of 7 business students and 4 employees in October 1985 be the precursor to 35,000 graduates and 570 Milan employees is an amazing achievement for us. Changing graduates’ lives for the better is something all Milan employees are proud of. Milan has been an important contributor in the communities we're located in, and we have built an excellent reputation for quality career training and job placement results. We are passionate about what we do and are excited about what the future holds for our schools.”

 

Milan’s mission is to meet the needs of students and employers by offering quality, short-term educational programs in career fields with solid growth potential. The Milan school group offers career training in the beauty, massage, healthcare, business, information technology and energy fields. Programs vary by location. Many campuses also have a student salon or student massage spa, where value-priced services are provided to the public by students under instructor supervision.

          Amyloid precursor protein and endosomal-lysosomal dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease: inseparable partners in a multifactorial disease.   

Amyloid precursor protein and endosomal-lysosomal dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease: inseparable partners in a multifactorial disease.

FASEB J. 2017 Jul;31(7):2729-2743

Authors: Nixon RA

Abstract
Abnormalities of the endosomal-lysosomal network (ELN) are a signature feature of Alzheimer's disease (AD). These include the earliest known cytopathology that is specific to AD and that affects endosomes and induces the progressive failure of lysosomes, each of which are directly linked by distinct mechanisms to neurodegeneration. The origins of ELN dysfunction and β-amyloidogenesis closely overlap, which reflects their common genetic basis, the established early involvement of endosomes and lysosomes in amyloid precursor protein (APP) processing and clearance, and the pathologic effect of certain APP metabolites on ELN functions. Genes that promote β-amyloidogenesis in AD (APP, PSEN1/2, and APOE4) have primary effects on ELN function. The importance of primary ELN dysfunction to pathogenesis is underscored by the mutations in more than 35 ELN-related genes that, thus far, are known to cause familial neurodegenerative diseases even though different pathogenic proteins may be involved. In this article, I discuss growing evidence that implicates AD gene-driven ELN disruptions as not only the antecedent pathobiology that underlies β-amyloidogenesis but also as the essential partner with APP and its metabolites that drive the development of AD, including tauopathy, synaptic dysfunction, and neurodegeneration. The striking amelioration of diverse deficits in animal AD models by remediating ELN dysfunction further supports a need to integrate APP and ELN relationships, including the role of amyloid-β, into a broader conceptual framework of how AD arises, progresses, and may be effectively therapeutically targeted.-Nixon, R. A. Amyloid precursor protein and endosomal-lysosomal dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease: inseparable partners in a multifactorial disease.

          Westminster Rises Among Leading Institutions in Transforming Student Learning Experiences   

Westminster College was selected as one of only 12 institutions in the country to be part of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Transformations Project. The CUR Transformations Project is a four-year project designed to create cohesive, research-based undergraduate curricula in biology, chemistry, physics and psychology programs. Supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, Westminster is now among leading institutions pursuing school and college-wide transformations in student learning through undergraduate research.

According to Mitch Malachowski, lead principal investigator of the CUR Transformations Project, “[Westminster’s] proposal really stood out amongst the many strong proposals [that were] received.” Along with other accepted institutions, Westminster will attend a collective meeting later this year in Washington D.C to launch the project.

“The project will support the integration of research into Westminster’s biology and psychology program curriculums, and the interdisciplinary neuroscience program and related molecular biology major as well,” says Dr. Karen Resendes, Co-Director of Undergraduate Research and Associate Professor of Biology (Institutional Contact).

In addition to working with consultants provided by CUR (one for biology and one for psychology), teams of Westminster biology and psychology faculty members will use the support provided by the grant to attend national workshops and training sessions. Funding has also been delegated towards conducting professional development at Westminster.  

“Exactly what the outcome of our projects will look like will depend on the decisions each program makes on how to move forward when we meet our consultants,” added Resendes. “No matter how we proceed the goals of the grant are to build on our current published successes in research in the curriculum and to make the transformations of these programs a model for growth across campus.”

The success of Westminster’s proposal was a joint effort thanks to teams of biology and psychology faculty members who serve in college-wide roles that directly impact the ability to carry out the aims of the grant. The Institutional Coordinating Leadership Team members includes: Dr. Karen Resendes; Dr. Jamie McMinn, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Professor of Psychology; Dr. Sandra Webster, Chair of Outcomes Assessment Advisory Committee and Professor of Psychology; Dr. John Robertson, Chair of Curriculum Committee and Program Coordinator/Associate Professor of Biology (Designated Contact Biology); and Dr. Mandy Medvin, Program Coordinator/Professor of Psychology.

Since coming on in June, incoming Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of the College Dr. Jeffrey Coker has agreed to join the Institutional Coordinating Leadership Team.

“This is wonderfully symbolic of Westminster’s emerging national leadership in the area of undergraduate research, and experiential learning more broadly,” says Coker.

Departmental leadership teams include faculty members from various sub-disciplines. The biology leadership team includes Dr. Joshua Corrette-Bennett, Associate Professor of Biology (former chair of the biology department); Dr. Diana Ortiz, Assistant Professor of Biology; and institutional team members Resendes and Robertson.

The psychology leadership team includes Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience Dr. Deanne Buffalari and institutional team members Webster and Medvin. Buffalari teaches learning, cognition, and behavioral neuroscience, all courses that include undergraduate research. Webster, professor of psychology, has significant experience in department administration, assessment and faculty development. Medvin, current psychology program chair, has led curriculum development at an institutional level.

          Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program at Westminster College Prepares for New Cohort of Scholars   

In 2014, officials announced that Westminster College was set to receive a $1.027 million grant through the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program of the National Science Foundation, a program aimed to increase qualifications of secondary educators in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (or IQ:STEM). Since its inception at Westminster, seven scholars have been accepted into the program; four of which have graduated and are in their first years of teaching.

One of the goals of IQ:STEM is recruiting individuals with strong STEM backgrounds who might not have otherwise considered a career in teaching. Due to its flexible short term commitment, a highlight of the program is that the rest of each scholar’s career path is completely in their hands. Some scholars continue making a positive impact in the lives of students in areas of high need, while others move on to different school districts or pursue different careers altogether.

For scholars like Cody Postupac, physics teacher at John Handley High School in Winchester, VA, the IQ:STEM Noyce Scholar program was a step in the right direction for him. Cody knew he wanted to go into teaching after completing his physics degree at Westminster. Through his participation in the program, Cody says he gained experience into many different areas of education including behavior management, pedagogical strategy and educational technology.

“One of the most useful things the program did for me was teach me about and give me experience in a high needs school,” Cody says. “As a teacher in a high needs school, that past experience has been invaluable. It shed some light on what a student might have to deal with outside of school, and that really puts everything else in perspective.”

Gaining the knowledge and experience needed to teach in areas of high need is what senior biology major David McCollough says gave him the insight needed for his career. Along with his colleagues, David has had many networking opportunities through attending practicum experiences, conferences and workshops.

“The program has many eye-opening opportunities that helps you gain experience in different schools. It also helps you realize that when a school is described as “high needs,” it is not as scary as most people think,” says David. “High needs schools are just like any other school once you get used to them, but you as a teacher must be a little more creative.”

Recent graduate and past scholar Brooke Mancuso says IQ:STEM provides students with the tools for more than just success. Starting this fall, Brooke is set to begin her new job as a biology teacher at Hempfield High School in Lancaster PA. Through the program, Brooke was able to attend the Noyce Northeastern regional conference in Boston, MA and the American Society of Cell Biology conference in San Diego, CA.

“The program provides you with the opportunities to learn and grow. They provide actual real life experiences through workshops, meetings, and conferences,” says Brooke.

Noyce Scholars receive stipends to attend/present at both Noyce Scholar conferences and conferences in their respective disciplines. In addition, each scholar is awarded a $15,000 grant for tuition, room and board during their junior and senior year. Stipends are also awarded to help offset certification tests and teacher workshop expenses. In return, each Noyce Scholars commit to two years of teaching in an area of high need for each year of support received.

“As a university level educator, working with this program has opened my eyes to the level of hard work and dedication together with the broad range of skills it takes to not only be a high school educator in any district but also the special training that will help one succeed in a high needs district,” says Dr. Karen Resendes, Associate Professor of Biology and Co-Principal Investigator of the IQ:STEM Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program.

Other professors involved with the grant include: Dr. Amy H. Camardese, Professor and Chair of the School of Education; Dr. Sararose D. Lynch, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education; Dr. Thomas E. Oberst, Assistant Professor of Physics; Mr. James Anthony, Lecturer of Math and Computer Science; and Dr. Erin E. Wilson, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Program Coordinator/Chair for Biochemistry.

Past and current scholars of the program include Tori DeAngelis ’15, Shawna Howard ’16, Gabe Roman ’19 and Jacob Stoyer ’19.

To all current student interested in becoming a Noyce Scholar, applications are being accepted in October 2017. Prospective Noyce Scholars must complete an application with (a) three recommendations, (b) an essay, and (c) transcripts indicating minimum GPA of 3.0. Strong applicants will be invited to interview with the selection committee.

To learn more about the IQ:STEM Noyce Scholars Program, watch this video or visit westminster.edu/IQSTEM.

          Dr. Diana Ortiz to Speak at Café Scientifique on Monday, June 5   

Dr. Diana Ortiz, assistant professor of biology, is guest speaking at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh as part of the Café Scientifique series on Monday, June 5 at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to adults. Food and drink will be available for purchase and parking is available for $5. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Carnegie Science Center’s Café Scientifique is an adult program for anyone interested in learning more about science and the latest technology breakthroughs in a relaxed, “pub-type atmosphere.”

“Being invited to present at the Carnegie Science Center’s Café Scientifique is an honor,” says Ortiz. “I hope that after this presentation, the audience gains a new appreciation for disease vectors, such as mosquitoes and ticks, and how humans are affecting how they live and interact with the environment.”

In her presentation, “Vector-Borne Disease Transmission: The Zika Virus Effect,” Ortiz discusses the societal and environmental changes that have directly affected the occurrence of vector-borne diseases. She also describes how unpredictable and complex these diseases can be, such as what has been observed through the worldwide emergence of the Zika virus.

Ortiz’s perspective on vectors stems from two decades of experience working in academia, industry, and government in the areas of vector biology, virology, biodefense, and public health

“I always get asked very basic questions about vectors and the diseases they transmit. I think people are always surprised to know that they are not just flying or crawling blood-sucking “needles,” explains Ortiz.

“Disease vectors are a group of very complex, biodiverse organisms that have been around a lot longer that humans have. These small, innocuous organisms are some of the most interesting and dangerous animals on Earth.”

Since coming to Westminster in 2014, Ortiz has maintained an active undergraduate research program in vector biology/ecology and emerging vector-borne diseases.

          Westminster Students and Faculty Present at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research   

Eight Westminster students attended and presented at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) at the University of Memphis in Tennessee the weekend of April 6-8th. The students all received funding from the Drinko Center for Undergraduate Research to attend the conference.

In attendance were Ashlyn Brown, Sarah Pace, Patrick Gaughan, Lexie Quigly, Daniel Owoc, Andrew Henley, Kaleigh Snider and Rebecca Haynik. The students presented in either poster sessions or oral presentations, and spent the remaining time networking with their peers, researchers in different fields and graduate school representatives.

“NCUR was a great platform to meet others from around the country and to hear what they have been researching at their college,” said Daniel Owoc, senior biology major. “Traveling to NCUR was something that I always wanted to do after talking to upper classmen when I was just starting out at Westminster.”

Thanks to funding from the Drinko Center for Undergraduate Research, students can apply for resources to conduct research projects and/or present at national (sometime international) conferences.

Kaleigh Snider, senior psychology major, took advantage of her opportunities networking with others in the mental health field while senior history major Andrew Henley used his experience at NCUR to help narrow his research focus for his capstone project.

“There were many posters/presentations for many fields, which allowed me to step out of my educational field and observe how other fields and schools complete research,” said Rebecca Haynik who presented her own research on the impact of affective content on memory.

After attending NCUR, senior biology major Sarah Pace says attending URAC made her even more excited to pursue her goal to become an optometrist because she learned so much at the conference.

“NCUR helped me realize the opportunities here at Westminster, and how the students here truly learn to take on the research as their own,” said Sarah. “Our faculty members are some of the best mentors, and NCUR truly showed me this.”

Westminster College faculty members Dr. Karen Resendes and Dr. Timothy Cuff accompanied the students at NCUR and presented a Faculty Action Network (FAN) session entitled “Curricular Integration Through Incrementalism: The Slow Growth and Eventual Institutional Success of Westminster College’s Undergraduate Research and Arts Celebration”. Resendes is an associate professor of biology and co-director of the Drinko Center for Undergraduate Research and Cuff is a professor of history.

I've been looking for colleges for a while and there are a lot of upper-end colleges that I'm interested in applying to, such as Princeton, U Penn, MIT, and JHU--the obvious problem there is that they're all super hard to get into, and if all of them reject me, it wouldn't be surprising. What are some more realistic colleges that are good for biology/biochem? So far the only backup that I'm certain I'm applying to is Rutgers. My family will likely support me wherever I decide to go as long as we can afford it, but I've been discouraged from going anywhere super far away like California. SAT I: 1570 (CR/W: 770 M: 800) Haven't taken Subject Tests yet but will take Math II, Chem or Bio, and Physics UW GPA: 4.15 W GPA: 4.60 Rank: 1/420-ish (School doesn't submit rank to colleges to my knowledge) Junior Year Course Load: AP Comp Sci A, AP US History, AP Calc BC, AP Physics 1, and AP Lang.

          Science ECs?   
I absolutely love science, especially biology, and have been taking advanced math and science classes for a while. I have read science oriented books in my free time, and enjoy talking to my teachers about topics covered in class. I'm a rising sophomore, and I want to do more. I've been looking for science extracurriculars I could take part in, but aside from summer programs (which I'll definitely be looking into when the time comes) and research opportunities (also something I'd be interested in), I can't find much. Does anyone know of any science ECs I could participate in during the school year? I am 15 now, I'll turn 16 in December, I live the the San Francisco bay area. Thanks for the help.

          Pack Lunch Boxes Without Packing Landfills   

Back to school season can be a bit of a challenge for parents who care about sustainability. It’s a time when the three Rs—reduce, reuse, recycle — often take a backseat to convenience.

But with a little ingenuity, parents can find easy-to-use alternatives that match their Earth-friendly values. Just ask Kirsten Quigley, mother of four and creator of LunchSkins reusable snack and sandwich bags. Back in 2008, Kirsten was organizing a green auction at her kids’ school when she came across some striking statistics:

•       According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 90% of the plastic items in our daily lives are used once and then discarded.

•       Somewhere between 5.3 and 14 million tons of plastic waste enters our oceans each year, posing a threat to ecosystems and marine life.

“I realized that I was part of the problem,” Kirsten remembers. “As mindful as I thought I was, I was still packing at least twenty lunches a week.” At the time, that meant Kirsten’s family was going through 20+ single-use plastic sandwich bags a week.

“I looked around for better alternatives to the traditional plastic baggie, and I couldn’t really find something that was user-friendly, durable, easy-to-use and easy-to-clean.” Kirsten, who studied Human Biology, International Health and the Environment at Stanford, put her research skills to work and discovered that bakeries and restaurants use a special pastry cloth made from quick-drying, food-safe fabric. She ordered a bolt of fabric, and soon LunchSkins was born.

“My aunt actually sewed the first prototypes that got us started,” Kirsten recalls.

Now, 7 years later, resuable LunchSkins are available in Whole Foods Market stores across the country, and Kirsten estimates that they’ve replaced 1 billion single-use plastic bags. (Each dishwasher-safe bag can be reused approximately 500 times.)

If you’re looking to adopt reusable baggies for back-to-school, Kirsten suggests making a mindful connection to another reusable that’s probably already part of your routine. “Every time you fill up your reusable water bottle, think about how you’re packing your lunch or snack.” (If you don't a go-to water bottle already, check out the Lifefactory Reusable Bottle with Sleeve, available in many Whole Foods Market stores.)

In the mood to make a less wasteful lunch? Here are a couple more tips to help you get started:

•       Ditch paper napkins in favor of reusable cloth. You can use napkins you already have or hit the thrift store for fun colors and patterns.

•       Send ’em back to school with Wild Kratts Lunch Totes featuring animals from the PBS series Wild Kratts. Each reusable tote boasts an outer layer made from 100% recycled plastic.

Fields Medal winner Manjul Bhargava's 3 ideas to overcome fear of maths

Sourabh Gupta  New Delhi, August 19, 2014 | UPDATED 17:03 IST
 

Princeton University professor Manjul BhargavaManjul Bhargava, the first Indian-origin mathematician to win the coveted Fields Medal, says the inspiration behind his discoveries in number theory has been the classic works of ancient Indian mathematicians.

"Their works contain incredible mathematical discoveries, and were very inspirational to me as a young mathematician. The classic works of Pingala, Hemachandra, and Brahmagupta have been particularly influential in my own work," the 40-year-old Princeton University professor told IndiaToday.in in a detailed email interview.

In the interview, he also goes on the explain how the ancients derived elegant mathematical patterns from rhythms of Sanskrit poetry and how he managed to simplify and expand the work of 18th century German maths legend Carl Friedrich Gauss with the help of Hemchandra's Identity and a simple Rubik's Mini-Cube.

Bhargava also offers three suggestions to teachers and students in India to make maths learning fun.

Here is the full Q&A:

Q: Can you describe for our readers, in simple terms, the nature of the number theory work for which you have been awarded?

A: I work in the area of number theory, which studies the whole numbers ..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ... and special whole numbers like the primes, and their properties and the equations that they satisfy.

My work was primarily about deciding when certain fundamental equations in mathematics (such as quadratic forms and elliptic curves) have solutions in the whole numbers. My work introduced, in particular, a new geometric method for answering such questions.

Manjul Bhargava receives the Fields Medal at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) in Seoul on August 12. Photo: ICMQ: We read in an interview that you have followed ancient Indian mathematics and works of Brahmagupta and Hemchandra. Please tell us a little more about what you feel about ancient Indian mathematics, and about Vedic mathematics too, on which there is a lot of debate in India.

A: In part because of the scientific nature of the Sanskrit language, many remarkable linguistic/poetic/mathematical works were written in ancient times in India. Growing up, I had a chance to read some of the works of the masters: the great linguists/poets such as Panini, Pingala, and Hemachandra, as well as the great mathematicians Aryabhata, Bhaskara, and of course Brahmagupta.  Their works contain incredible mathematical discoveries, and were very inspirational to me as a young mathematician.

The classic works of Pingala, Hemachandra, and Brahmagupta have been particularly influential in my own work.

Q: You have said that you found inspiration to do maths through tabla playing and Sanskrit. How?

A: My greatest influences while growing up were my grandfather, a renowned scholar of Sanskrit and ancient Indian history, and my mother, a mathematician with strong interests also in music and linguistics.  As a result, I also developed deep interests in language and literature, particularly Sanskrit poetry, and in classical Indian music.  I learned to play a number of musical instruments, such as sitar, guitar, violin, and keyboard.  But I always enjoyed rhythm and percussion the most!  My favourite instrument was the tabla.  I enjoyed thinking about the mathematics of rhythm in classic Hindustani and Carnatic music.

While growing up, I learned from my grandfather how much incredible mathematics was discovered in ancient times by scholars who considered themselves not mathematicians, but poets (or linguists).  Linguists such as Panini, Pingala, Hemachandra, and Narayana discovered some wonderful and deep mathematical concepts while studying poetry.  The stories that my grandfather told me about them were very inspirational to me.

Here is an example, originating in 500 B.C., that has been particularly fascinating to me as a drummer.

In the rhythms of Sanskrit poetry, there are two kinds of syllables - long and short. A long syllable lasts two beats, and a short syllable lasts one beat.  A question that naturally arose for ancient poets was: how many rhythms can one construct with exactly (say) eight beats, consisting of long and short syllables?  For instance, one can take long-long-long-long, or
short-short-short-long-long-short.

The answer was discovered by the ancients, and is contained in Pingala's classical work Chandashastra, which dates back to between 500 and 200 B.C.

Here is the elegant solution.  We write down a sequence of numbers as follows. We first write down the numbers 1 and 2.  And then each subsequent number is obtained by adding up the two previous numbers.

So, for example, we start with 1 and 2, and then 1+2 is 3, so we have so far 1 2 3.  The next number is obtained by adding up the last two numbers 2 and 3, which is 5.  So we have so far 1 2 3 5.  The next number written is then 3+5 which is 8.  In this way, we get a sequence of numbers 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89... The n-th number written tells you the total number of rhythms, consisting of long and short syllables, having n beats. So for 8 beats, the answer is that there are 34 such rhythms in total.

This sequence of numbers is now ubiquitous in mathematics, as well as in a number of other arts and sciences!  The numbers are known as the Hemachandra numbers, after the 11th century linguist who first documented and proved their method of generation -- called a "recurrence relation" in modern mathematics.  The numbers are also known as the Fibonacci numbers in the West, after the famous Italian mathematician who wrote about them in the 12th century.  

These numbers play an important role now in so many areas of mathematics (there is even an entire mathematical journal, the Fibonacci Quarterly, devoted to them!). They also arise in botany and biology.  For example, the number of petals on a daisy tends to be one of these Hemachandra numbers, and similarly for the number of spirals on a pine cone (for mathematical reasons that are now essentially understood).

One of my favorite photographs, which I keep in my office, is of a vast field of daisies, in which every daisy has 34 petals!  (Recall that 34 is the same number that appeared as the answer to our question about 8 beat rhythms, revealing a hidden connection that mathematicians now understand.)

This story inspired me when I was growing up because it is a wonderful example of a simple idea that grew into something so omnipresent, important, and deep- unraveling surprising and beautiful connections among different realms of thought.  There are many examples of this phenomenon in mathematics and its sister areas; I grew up learning many examples stemming from Sanskrit poetry, and is one of those things that always makes a mathematician's eyes light up.

Photo: ICMQ:  We were pleasantly surprised to know that Ustad Zakir Hussain gave you lessons in tabla. How was he as a teacher?

A: I first started learning music from my mother, who sings and also plays the tabla.  When I was maybe 3 years old, I used to hear my mother playing tabla often, and I asked her to teach me to play a little bit.  She tried to teach me the basic sound "na".

She demonstrated the sound to me, and I tried to mimic her to reproduce the sound, but nothing came out. I was hooked! I always loved the beauty and the intricacy of the tabla sound and repertoire, and how it also perfectly complemented sounds on the sitar, or vocal, etc.  

I learned with my mom first, and then with Pandit Prem Prakash Sharma in Jaipur whenever I visited there.

I met Zakir-ji when I was an undergraduate at Harvard.  He came to perform there when I was a third year student. I had the exciting opportunity to meet him afterwards at a reception, and he invited me to visit him in California (where he lives).  I have had the great pleasure and privilege of learning from him a bit off and on since then. He is not just an incredible artist, but also an amazing teacher.  

More than that, he has been a wonderful and inspirational friend, and he and his whole family - in both California and Bombay - have been such a huge source of love, encouragement, and support to me for so long, and I am very grateful to them for that.

Q: You are known to use magic tricks in your class to explain points. As a professor, what would be your three suggestions to teachers in India to create interest in maths in the classroom, especially among students who fear the subject?

A: - Maths problems should be motivated not just through the sciences, but also through the arts: puzzles, toys, magic, poetry, music - these should all form a key part of the mathematics classroom.

- Students should not be taught to solve problems in a robotic way; instead, they should be guided to discover key mathematics ideas on their own. Maths should be a creative exciting process of discovery!

-Maths should be interactive and collaborative.  Students should be encouraged to discover things together, and work together.

This is how mathematics research is, and so this should be reflected in the classroom!

A: When people see mathematics done as described above, as a playful, creative, interactive subject, they see that it is not terrifying at all - it is beautiful! Among my favorite books as a child that taught me a lot about the fun of mathematics were those of Martin Gardner, e.g., his book "Mathematics, Magic, and Mystery".

Q:  You are famous for finding a simpler way to express Gauss composition law through Bharmagupta's work and Rubik's Cube? Can you explain how you did it?

A: Gauss's law says that you can compose two quadratic forms (i.e., expressions of the shape ax^2+bxy+cy^2, where a, b, c are fixed whole numbers and x and y are the variables) to get a third such quadratic form.

I was in California in the summer of 1998, and I had a 2 x 2 x 2 mini-Rubik's cube in my room. I was visualizing putting numbers on each of the corners, and I saw these binary quadratic forms coming out, three of them. I just sat down and wrote out the relations between them, and realized that I had found a simple description of Gauss's law. It was a great day!

I can give more details if you are interested: A very classical question in mathematics is: what whole numbers can be expressed as the sum of two squares?  (i.e., what whole number values are taken by the polynomial x^2 + y^2, for whole number values of x and y?) For example, 5 is such a number, because 5 = 1 + 4 = 1^2 + 2^2, but 7 is not.

One ancient theorem about such numbers is: if you take two whole numbers that are each a sum of two squares, and you multiply them, then you will always again get a number that is a sum of two squares!  (Please try it!)

The reason for this is the following remarkable identity: (a^2 + b^2) (c^2 + d^2) = (ac - bd)^2 + (ad + bc)^2.

This identity gives an explicit method for taking two numbers that are each a sum of two squares, and expressing the product again as a sum of two squares.  

This identity was discovered by Diophantus in the third century, and is a first case of Gauss composition: We are taking an expression of the form x^2 + y^2, and multiplying it with another expression of the form x^2 + y^2, and we are ending up with a third quadratic expression, also of the form x^2+y^2!

More generally, for any number n, if you take two whole numbers that are each a square plus n times a square, and you multiply them, you will always end up again with a number that is a square plus n times a square. This is because of a generalization of the above identity, discovered by Brahmagupta in 628. 

It was not until Gauss that this phenomenon was fully understood.  Gauss found all triples Q, R, S of quadratic expressions such that: if a is any value taken by Q, and b is any value taken by R, then the product ab will always be a value taken by S.  In that case, we say that "the composition of Q and R is S" (in Gauss's law of composition).  For example, the composition of Q = x^2 + ny^2 and R = x^2 + ny^2 is again S = x^2 + ny^2, due to Brahmagupta's identity. 

Gauss showed that, in general, S is essentially uniquely determined by Q and R, so it makes sense to say that S is the composition of Q and R.  (By "quadratic expression", we mean here an expression of the form ax^2 + bxy +cy^2, where a, b, c are fixed whole numbers, and x and y are the variables.)

Gauss discovered this law of composition in 1801 in his famous work Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, but it took about 20 pages of complicated calculation to describe the composition law in general.

In my Ph.D. thesis, inspired by Rubik's cubes as you mentioned, I found a very simple way to formulate Gauss composition, which took only a few lines to describe. (Please see, e.g., pages 10, 11, and 12 of this link).

This new perspective on Gauss composition also led me in my Ph.D. thesis to 13 new laws of composition, which applied to higher degree polynomials and to polynomials in more than 2 variables (Gauss composition applies to binary quadratic forms, i.e., degree 2 polynomials in two variables).

Previously, it was thought that Gauss composition is an isolated phenomenon that applies only to quadratic expressions in two variables.

My Ph.D. thesis work showed that it was in fact part of a much larger theory. That's probably more than you wanted to know! :)

Q:  Do you think maths is a natural gift or can it be inculcated in students by proper guidance?

A: I think it can be a combination of both, but proper guidance/encouragement/inspiration is perhaps the more important aspect. A student's talent and interest has to be fostered and cultivated in order to truly bloom.

          Justice Neil Gorsuch Votes 100 Percent Of The Time With Most Conservative Colleague    

By now, we can probably say that Justice Anthony Kennedy is not retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court. The word "probably" is apt because nothing is certain about the plans of this or any other Supreme Court justice when it comes to ending his or her service on the nation's highest court.

But this week, the court wrapped up the current term, and Kennedy, who turns 81 in July, seems to have decided to stay on the job — at least for the coming term.

There could be a variety of reasons. As an institutional matter, he could well have concluded that there had been enough uncertainty and drama on the court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, and the vacancy that lasted for well over a year with Senate Republicans refusing to even consider President Obama's nominee.

Kennedy may also have thought it best to ensure that there is a full complement of nine justices for at least a year. He could even have been put off by President Trump's tweets about the judiciary.

But it is unlikely that Kennedy will remain on the court for the full four years of the Trump presidency. While he long ago hired his law clerks for the coming term, he has not done so for the following term (beginning Oct. 2018), and has let applicants for those positions know he is considering retirement.

Kennedy's position on the court is more than consequential. In the most hotly contested and closely divided cases, his vote often decides the outcome. With every passing day, it has become more clear that President Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, is probably even more conservative than the justice he replaced, Antonin Scalia.

Ideological footprints in the sand

It is unusual to see a new justice's ideological footprints so clearly in his first year or two on the high court. Indeed, most new justices, including those with long careers on the lower courts, are somewhat hesitant at first. They understand that the Supreme Court's word is the final word, and that looking at issues from this new perspective is somewhat different from the perspective of a lower court judge, whose job is to carry out the mandates of a higher court.

But Justice Gorsuch seems both sure-footed and sure of himself and his views. Though he was confirmed in time to hear only the final two weeks of the term's oral arguments, his votes and opinions in those cases — and others that the court has disposed of since he was sworn in — paint a vivid picture of a justice on the far right of the current Supreme Court bench.

Indeed, he voted 100 percent of the time with the court's most conservative member, Clarence Thomas, according to SCOTUSblog.

If Thomas is Gorsuch's new best friend, in terms of votes, his second-best friend statistically is Justice Samuel Alito, with whom he voted next most often.

Those three, and sometimes just two, represented the far right of the bench this term, while Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Kennedy represented the center right. On the ideological left, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor voted together most often — 78 percent of the time — and to a somewhat lesser extent with Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, who might be characterized as on the center left.

A look at the court's last day sitting this week is illustrative.

Gorsuch, Thomas and Alito would have let the modified Trump travel ban go into effect in its entirety, while six justices, including the chief justice and Kennedy, issued a compromise ruling that allowed the executive order to go into effect with certain conditions. Until the court reviews the order more fully in October, the six said that the modified ban cannot be applied to "foreign nationals who have a credible claim of bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."

On gay rights, the three dissented when the court summarily struck down an Arkansas law that barred married same-sex couples from having both their names on a birth certificate. Writing for the conservative trio, Gorsuch said, "It is very hard to see what is wrong with . . . a birth registration regime based on biology."

In contrast, the other six justices, including the chief justice and Kennedy, wrote that the court's 2015 decision declaring a right to marry for same-sex couples guaranteed more than a marriage certificate. It also guaranteed "the constellation of benefits that the States have linked to marriage." And the majority observed that the states, including Arkansas, do not have a paternity requirement for opposite-sex couples to list both names on a birth certificate.

On gun rights, Gorsuch and Thomas voted to hear a challenge to a California law barring people from carrying a gun in public for self-defense. The other seven justices left in place a lower court ruling that upheld the law.

On the subject of campaign finance, Gorsuch and Thomas cast similar dissenting votes when the court refused to hear a challenge to the so-called soft-money ban contained in the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

And finally, Gorsuch and Thomas refused to sign on to the limiting language of the court's 7-to-2 decision on state aid to religious schools. Five justices agreed that it was unconstitutional for the state of Missouri to deny public funds to resurface the playground at a church school. But Gorsuch and Thomas wrote separately to strongly suggest that, in their view, religious schools are entitled to the same kind of taxpayer funding that other schools get.

Next term, thunder and lightning

If, as many observers characterized it, this term was the "calm before the storm," the next term will have plenty of thunderbolts.

Among the issues facing the court will be:

  • A test of state public accommodations laws, and whether business owners can deny commercial services for a gay wedding.
  • A case testing whether police have to get a warrant to track cellphones.
  • And a case that tests whether there is a constitutional limit to the practice of partisan gerrymandering. At issue is whether the party in power can perpetuate and increase its influence by packing its opponents into a small number of legislative districts, or carefully dispersing its opponents into so many different districts that the opposing party has little to no chance of winning in most districts. Partisan gerrymandering has existed since the founding of the republic, but with the advent of high-powered computers, the practice has become so refined — and effective — that increasingly, congressional districts and state legislative districts have been all but walled off from competition.

In this case, as in so many others, Justice Kennedy's vote is likely to be pivotal. In a case testing partisan gerrymandering in 2004, Kennedy said he was amenable to the idea of a limit on partisan gerrymandering, but he couldn't figure out a neutral test to gauge how much is too much. Now, in a case from Wisconsin, some progressive groups contend they have come up with a test that would work. The outcome will assuredly determine how our democracy functions in the years to come.

          저마다 자식 자랑에 여념 없다는 '캣쇼'에 가보았다(르포, 화보)   
캣쇼, ‘냥덕후’들의 학예발표회

▶고슴도치도 자기 자식이 이쁘다는데, 고양이 부모라고 다를까. 꽤나 열성적인 집사들이 모여 ‘자식 자랑’에 여념이 없다는 캣쇼에 가보았다.


“쟤가 집에선 안 저러는데….”

‘저지’(캣쇼의 심사위원)가 흔드는 장난감에도 심사대에 선 고양이가 반응이 없자 집사(고양이 주인)는 속이 탄다. “집이었으면 이미 저거 물고 달아났어.” 고양이가 장난감을 향해 다리를 뻗고 몸도 일으켜야 저지는 체형을 잘 살펴볼 수 있다. 발랄한 성격을 드러낼 수도 있다. 그런데 애가 움직이질 않으니…. 집사는 답답하고 구경꾼은 즐겁다. 정작 엄마는 속이 타는데, 다른 집 부모들은 킥킥 웃는, 여느 어린이집 학예발표회장 같다.

e


지난 6월25일. 59마리 고양이들이 경기도 고양시 킨텍스 제2전시장에 모였다. 래그돌, 메인쿤, 벵골, 브리티시 쇼트헤어…. 고양이를 키우지 않는 사람도 한번쯤은 들어봤을, 이들은 모두 이른바 ‘품종묘’들이다. 누군가에겐 ‘비싼 고양이’로 알려졌고, 누군가에겐 ‘순혈종’으로 알려졌지만, 집사에겐 그냥 ‘내 새끼’일 뿐인. 오늘은 이들이 모여 캣쇼를 여는 날이다.

집사 마음, 부모 마음

이날 캣쇼의 심사는 4명의 저지가 맡았다. 참가 고양이들은 키튼 클래스(생후 4~8개월), 캣 클래스(생후 8개월 이상), 알터 클래스(생후 8개월 이상 중성화 완료)로 나눠 경쟁을 벌였는데, 캣과 알터는 다시 털이 긴 장모종과 털이 짧은 단모종으로 구분해 심사를 받았다. 1번 ‘링’(각 저지가 심사하는 곳)에서 키튼 클래스를 심사하면 2번 링에선 캣 클래스, 3번 링에선 알터 클래스, 4번 링은 특별 클래스(이날은 얼룩무니(tabby) 계열 고양이들끼리의 경쟁이 열렸다)가 진행되는 식이다. 각 클래스는 모든 저지에게 한번씩 돌아가며 심사를 받는다.

e


고양이 59마리가 각 링을 돌아가며 심사를 받다 보니 이들 고양이를 링으로 데리고 갔다가 다시 텐트로, 차례가 오면 다시 링으로 데려가야 하는 집사들은 쉴 틈이 없다. ‘우리 애가 이번엔 몇 등이나 할까.’ 숨죽이고 지켜보다 보면 시간이 금방 간다. 그런 중에도 또 예쁜 고양이들을 보면 눈길이 간다. “어휴, 쟤 정말 이쁘네”라며 넋 놓고 있다가 순서를 놓치기도 한다. “○○번 고양이 1번 링으로 출전해주시기 바랍니다”라는 방송이 나오고 옆에서 “○○번, 그 집 아냐?”라고 하면 그때서야 총총걸음으로 뛰어간다.

사정이 이러니 두마리 이상 데리고 나왔다면 혼자서는 감당이 안 된다. 그래서 친구나 가족과 함께 나온 경우가 대부분. 분양과 입양을 하면서 서로 잘 아는 사이인 집사들은 ‘옆집 고양이’를 심사대로 데려다주기도 했다.

정신없기는 사실 집사보다 고양이가 더하다. 아주 오랜만에 또는 처음으로 집 밖을 나온 고양이들은 어리둥절 그 자체다. 심사대를 바라보며 8열로 친 쇼텐트에 자리를 잡고 앉은 고양이들은 낯선 공간과 처음 보는 사람과 처음 맡는 다른 고양이 냄새에 대부분 반쯤 혼이 나갔다. 세상 모든 게 신기한 몇몇 어린 고양이들만 팔팔하다. 도그쇼와 달리 캣쇼가 개방된 공간에서 시끌벅적하게 열리지 않는 주된 이유는 고양이의 이런 습성 때문이다. 카메라 플래시도 터뜨리지 않는 게 예의다. 일부에선 “사람들 재밌자고 영역 동물인 고양이에게 하루 종일 낯선 곳에서 스트레스를 준다”며 캣쇼를 비판하기도 한다.

이런 중에 또 심사대에 나가 맵시 자랑을 해야 하니 집사들은 고양이들을 달래느라 여념이 없다. 행여 더울까봐 소형 선풍기를 틀어주고 장난감을 이리저리 흔들며 기분을 맞춰주는 중이다. 끊임없이 털도 빗겨줘야 한다. 오늘만은 ‘차오츄르’(많은 고양이들이 좋아하는 간식 브랜드, ‘마약 간식’으로 불림)도 무한제공이다. 저지는 고양이의 얼굴과 몸통, 털 색깔과 윤기 등을 꼼꼼히 살핀 뒤 점수를 매기고 각 클래스 순위를 발표한다. ‘이 품종의 고양이는 이래야 한다’는 ‘스탠더드’라는 게 있지만 사람이 하는 심사라 결과가 늘 한결같진 않다. 예를 들어 캣 클래스 단모종에 출전한 내 고양이가 1번 링에선 1위를 하더라도 나머지 2~4번 링에서 순위권에 못 들 수도 있다. 그러면 또 ‘부모 입장’에선 속이 탄다. 여기선 ‘물개박수’가 저기선 탄식이 쏟아진다. 때론 “저기선 베스트에 들었는데 여기선 왜 못 들지”라고 중얼거리기도 한다.

무엇을 어떻게 겨루나?


캣쇼는 품종묘들이 외모를 겨루는 이벤트다. 비품종묘(하우스홀드·Household Pet)들이 참가하는 클래스가 있는 캣쇼도 있지만 최근엔 비품종묘는 거의 참가하지 않는다. 그래서 “비싼 고양이들 미모 경연대회”라고 곱지 않게 보는 이들도 있다. 캣쇼에 나오는 고양이들 대부분이 품종묘이고 이들의 외모를 평가해 순위를 매기는 식으로 행사가 진행되니 전혀 틀린 말은 아니다. 그게 또 전부는 아니지만.

품종(breed)이란 생물학적으론 ‘다른 집단과 구별되는 유전적인 특성’(www.biology-online.org)으로 정의할 수 있다. 품종묘란 각 개체의 순수한 유전형질을 보유한 고양이를 일컫는데, 단순히 해당 품종의 외형적 특성을 갖췄다고 품종묘로 인정되진 않는다. 고유한 특성이 다음 세대까지 유전될 수 있도록 하는 ‘품종개량’ 과정을 거쳐야 가능한데, 현실에선 고양이애호가협회(CFA: Cat Fanciers’ Association), 국제고양이협회(TICA: The International Cat Association) 등 고양이 혈통등록협회에 등록된 ‘품종증명서’를 발급받은 고양이를 품종묘라고 한다. 이 품종묘들을 키우면서 교배하고 분양(‘입양비’를 받고 새 주인에게 고양이를 넘기는 것)하는 사람들을 브리더(breeder), 브리더가 고양이를 기르고 분양하는 곳을 캐터리라고 한다. 캐터리는 한 마리에 수십만원에서 많게는 수백만원의 분양비를 받는다.

w


각 혈통등록협회엔 품종별 고양이의 기본적인 특성(standard)을 규정해놓고 있다. 캣쇼에선 각 품종묘가 이 ‘스탠더드’에 얼마나 가까운지를 심사한다. 그래서 ‘미모 경연대회’라는 말은 반은 맞고 반은 틀리다. 품종마다 요구하는 기준이 다르기 때문이다. 적어도 캣쇼 심사대 위에선, 모든 고양이들이 사랑스러울 필요는 없다.

예를 들어 최순실씨의 딸 정유라씨가 키웠던 래그돌(Ragdoll)은 ‘둥근 눈’이 감점 요인인 반면 브리티시 쇼트헤어(British Shorthair)가 래그돌 같은 아몬드형 눈 형태를 지니면 감점이 된다. 페르시안(Persian)은 앞이마와 코끝, 턱이 일직선상에 있어야 스탠더드다. 코나 입이 길고 날씬하면 감점된다. 머리(얼굴)와 몸통 위주로 심사하지만 러시안 블루(Russian Blue)는 털의 색과 패턴에 머리나 몸통보다 더 많은 가중치(40:33:27)를 두고 심사한다.

캣쇼 성적은 점수로 환산되는데 이 점수가 누적되면 아시아챔피언, 세계챔피언 같은 상위 그룹 순위에 들 수 있다. 물론 아시아챔피언이나 세계챔피언이 된다고 금전적 이익이 생기진 않는다. 대신 ‘품종 고유의 혈통과 특성을 지닌 고양이’라는 인정을 다수로부터 받은 것이고 집사와 고양이에겐 큰 영광이 된다. 브리더들은 ‘한국 최초’, ‘국내 유일’ 등의 타이틀을 자신의 캐터리에 붙일 수 있게 된다. 사실 고양이를 키우지 않거나 ‘코숏’(코리안 쇼트헤어)으로 널리 부르는 비품종묘를 키우는 사람들에겐 남의 나라 얘기다. “좀 덕후스럽다”고, 캣쇼에 참가한 집사들도 인정한다.

e


성적이 또 전부는 아니다. 캣쇼엔 브리더뿐만 아니라 품종묘를 기르는 평범한 집사들도 참가한다. 남의 집 고양이와 비교해보면 ‘내가 얘를 잘 키우고 있는지 알 수 있다’는 게 캣쇼에 참가하는 또 다른 이유다. 고양이 키우는 마음은 집사들만이 안다. 짧은 점심시간에 도시락을 나눠 먹으며 집사들의 수다는 끝날 줄을 모른다.

노르웨이 숲(Norwegian Forest) 고양이 두마리와 함께 산다는 김승현씨는 “여기 참가자들 대부분이 나보다 더 많은 고양이를 더 오래 키운 분들이라 노하우가 많다”고 말했다. 김씨와 함께 출전한 고양이 ‘아미’는 이날 순위에 오르지 못했다. 그렇다고 김씨가 아미를 잘 키우지 못한 건 아니겠지만 이유가 있긴 했다. 김씨는 “요즘 좀 잘 먹였더니 몸이 불었다”며 웃었다.

저지들이 심사 과정에서 해주는 평들은 김씨 같은 집사들에겐 좋은 조언이 된다. 심사가 끝난 뒤 저지를 찾아가 내 고양이가 어떤 점이 부족했는지 물어보는 건 자연스러운 일이다. 안타깝게도 국제 혈통등록기관에서 공인한 한국인 저지는 이날 참여한 이선희씨가 유일하다. 통역하는 스태프들이 있지만 아무래도 외국인 저지에게 사소한 부분까지 묻고 답하는 게 쉽지 않다 보니 집사들은 이선희 저지의 심사에 더욱 귀를 기울인다. 브리티시 쇼트헤어 4마리를 데리고 나온 변제섭씨는 “외국인 저지들은 주로 좋은 얘기만 해주는데, 사실 집사들은 우리 애가 어떤 면이 부족한지에 더 관심이 많다”며 “이선희 저지가 있어 정말 다행”이라고 말했다.

러시안 블루 브리더이던 이선희씨는 2014년 8월 국내 1호 캣쇼 저지가 됐다. 이씨를 포함한 4명의 저지는 오전 10시부터 오후 6시까지 끊임없이 고양이를 케이지에서 꺼내 심사대에 올려놓고 심사가 끝나면 다시 케이지에 넣는 일을 반복했다. 끊임없이 장난감도 흔든다. 그런데도 지루한 기색이 없다. 어린 고양이랑 놀아주다 발톱에 상처를 입기도 했는데 별거 아니란 투다. 이씨는 “나 역시 고양이에 빠진 사람이라 가능하다”며 웃었다.

e


좋은 걸 어떡해


캣쇼가 사람들의 학예발표회와 다른 점이 있다면 화내거나 얼굴 찡그린 사람을 찾기 어렵다는 점이었다. 각 클래스 참가비는 15만원에서 20만원. 고양이 두마리를 데려와 캣 클래스와 키튼 클래스에 각각 출전한다면 참가비만 35만원이다. ‘본전 생각’을 하다 보면 짜증이 날 법도 한데, 진행이 조금 미숙해도, 내 고양이가 순위에 들지 못해도 다들 만족하는 표정이었다.

“외국 저지들 항공료와 체재비, 행사장 임대료(360만원) 빼면 마이너스”인 행사를 주최한 신우찬 티케이비에스(TKBS: The Korea Bengal Cat Society) 회장도 “결국 다들 고양이가 좋아서 그러는 거”라고 말했다. 신 회장은 “품종묘를 키우고 캣쇼를 하는 데 적은 비용이 드는 건 아니다. 품종묘에 대한 거부 반응이 있는 것도 잘 알고 유기묘나 길고양이를 키우는 분들도 대단하다고 생각한다. 고양이를 좋아하는 마음은 모두가 마찬가지”라며 “다양한 모습들이 있다는 걸로 봐주시면 좋겠다”고 말했다.

이날 캣쇼의 공식 이름은 ‘ANF TICA-TKBS 캣쇼’다. 티케이비에스가 주최하고 국제고양이협회에서 인증한 캣쇼를 반려동물 사료 회사 에이엔에프(ANF)가 후원한다는 뜻. 기업들은 이미 캣쇼를 단순히 ‘냥덕후들의 학예발표장’이 아닌 마케팅 시장으로 보고 후원하는 중이다. 홍지후 에이엔에프 마케팅팀장은 “캣쇼에 참석한 고양이 오너들은 사료나 물품에 대한 안목이 높다. 커뮤니티 활동도 왕성하게 하는 분들이라 캣쇼 후원은 마케팅 효과가 있다”고 말했다.

          Why no alien is calling us from space   

Sydney: If the search for an alien life has not yielded any conclusive results in the last 50 years, it is probably because life on other planets was brief and has gone extinct soon after its origin owing to runaway heating or cooling on their planets, say astrobiologists led by an Indian-origin scientist.

“The universe is probably filled with habitable planets, so many scientists think it should be teeming with aliens,” said Aditya Chopra from Australian National University (ANU).

“Early life is fragile so we believe it rarely evolves quickly enough to survive,” he added in a paper published in the journal Astrobiology.

“Most early planetary environments are unstable. To produce a habitable planet, life forms need to regulate greenhouse gases such as water and carbon dioxide to keep surface temperatures stable,” Dr Chopra continued.

About four billion years ago the Earth, Venus and Mars may have all been habitable. However, a billion years or so after formation, Venus turned into a hothouse and Mars froze into an icebox.

“Early microbial life on Venus and Mars, if there was any, failed to stabilise the rapidly changing environment,” said co-author associate professor Charley Lineweaver.

“Life on Earth probably played a leading role in stabilizing the planet's climate," he noted.

According to Dr Chopra, their theory has solved a puzzle.

“The mystery of why we haven't yet found signs of aliens may have less to do with the likelihood of the origin of life or intelligence and have more to do with the rarity of the rapid emergence of biological regulation of feedback cycles on planetary surfaces,” he explained.

Wet and rocky planets, with the ingredients and energy sources required for life seem to be ubiquitous. However, as physicist Enrico Fermi pointed out in 1950, no signs of surviving extra-terrestrial life have been found.

A solution to Fermi's paradox, say the researchers, is near universal early extinction which they have named the “Gaian Bottleneck”.

"One intriguing prediction of the 'Gaian Bottleneck' model is that the vast majority of fossils in the universe will be from extinct microbial life, not from multicellular species such as dinosaurs or humanoids that take billions of years to evolve," Lineweaver pointed out.

          A holistic global strategic plan to include Antarctica's biodiversity   


The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity, developed under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), provides the framework for curbing biodiversity loss by 2020. It consists of five strategic goals interspersed with 20 targets known as the Aichi Biodiversity Targetsacting as a flexible framework for addressing national needs, priorities, and progress. 

Biodiversity and conservation state of the Antarcticaand Southern Ocean (which cover 10% of the planet's surface), however, has not been evaluated against the Strategic Plan
a clear gap if a holistic global biodiversity assessment is aimed by 2020. Providing an analysis of the region will generate a true representative of the state of global biodiversity; it will also allow the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) to compare conservation progress in the region with that being made globally. 

Scientists led by Steven Chown, together with Sea Around Us Senior Scientist and SeaLifeBase Project Coordinator Maria Lourdes Palomares and others, filled in the gap using empirical evidence, expert knowledge, and general guidelines for conducting biodiversity assessments. 

Antarcticaand the Southern Ocean biodiversity prospects for 2020 (and beyond to 2050), surprisingly, are at par or similar to those for the rest of the planet.  Still, a lot can be done to improve the state in the region through support from the government, industry, and public, creation of new tools, and an integrated biodiversity strategy and action plan.

          Anjing paham cara manusia berbicara   
Jakarta (ANTARA News) -  Sebuah temuan yang dipublikasikan dalam Jurnal Current Biology pada 26 November lalu menunjukkan, bagaimama anjing dapat membedakan dan memproses berbagai komponen suara manusia.

Hal ini sama seperti manusia yang mendengar orang lainnya berbicara lalu merespon tidak hanya tentang apa yang dikatakan --konsonan dan vokal yang dirangkai menjadi kata-kata dan kalimat -- tetapi juga bagian lainnya, misalnya nada emosional dan jenis kelamin pembicara.

"Meskipun kita tidak dapat mengatakan berapa banyak atau cara anjing memahami informasi, kami dapat katakan kalau anjing bereaksi terhadap informasi verbal dan informasi yang berkaitan. Komponen ini nampaknya diproses di daerah yang berbeda pada otak anjing," kata Victoria Ratcliffe dari School of Psychology di University of Sussex.

Penelitian sebelumnya menunjukkan kalau anjing memiliki bias hemispherik - otak kiri vs kanan - ketika mereka memproses vokalisasi suara anjing lainnya. Ratcliffe dan rekannya, David Reby mengatakan temuan itu merupkan langkah logis untuk menyelidiki apakah anjing menunjukkan bias yang sama dalam menanggapi informasi yang dikirimkan dalam bahasa manusia.

Dalam hal ini, mereka memainkan suara dari berbagai sisi anjing sehingga suara masuk ke telinga anjing pada waktu bersamaan dan dengan amplitudo yang sama.

"Input dari masing-masing telinga terutama ditransmisikan ke belahan berlawanan dari otak. Jika salah satu hemisphere (bagian otak yang bertugas berpikir secara afektif dan rasional) lebih khusus memproses informasi tertentu dalam suara, maka informasi itu dipersepesikan berasal dari telinga yang berlawanan," papar Ratcliffe.

Jika anjing menengok ke kiri, ini menunjukkan kalau suara terdengar lebih jelas oleh telinga kiri. Hal ini  menunjukkan kalau hemisphere bagian kanan lebih khusus dalam pengolahan jenis informasi.

Para peneliti lalu mengamati bias umum dalam respon anjing untuk aspek-aspek tertentu dari suara manusia. Ketika mereka memberikan perintah yang akrab diucapkan pada anjing, maka anjing pun memperlihatkan bias proses hemisphere kiri, yang diindikasikan dengan perilaku menengok ke sebelah kanan.

Lalu, ketika intonasi atau isyarat vokal pembicara berlebihan maka anjing menunjukkan bias hemisphere bagian kanan yang signifikan.

"Hal ini sangat menarik karena hasil temuan kami menunjukkan kalau pengolahan komponen suara di otak anjing dibagi antara dua belahan dengan cara yang sebenarnya sangat mirip dengan cara otak manusia," kata Reby seperti dilansir siaran publik Eukaalert yang dikutip dari Science Daily.

Tentu saja, itu tidak berarti anjing benar-benar mengerti segala sesuatu yang manusia katakan.  Atau tidak bisa dikatakan kalau anjing memiliki kemampuan berbahasa yang mirip manusia.

Tapi, kata Ratcliffe, hasil ini mendukung gagasan kalau sahabat manusia itu memperhatikan "tidak hanya siapa dan bagaimana kita mengatakan sesuatu  tetapi juga untuk apa kita katakan sesuatu itu".

Temuan ini merupakan kabar baik untuk kita karena banyak dari kita yang mencintai anjing, menghabiskan waktu bersama mereka. Mereka mungkin tidak selalu mengerti, tapi benar-benar mendengarkan.

          Cracking The Code That Lets The Brain ID Any Face, Fast   
Most people have an uncanny ability to tell one face from another, even though the differences are extremely small. Now scientists think they know how our brains do this. In macaque monkeys, which share humans' skill with faces, groups of specialized neurons in the brain called face cells appeared to divide up the task of assessing a face, a team at the California Institute of Technology reports Thursday in the journal Cell . "The cells were coding faces in a very simple way," says Doris Tsao , an author of the study and a professor of biology at Caltech. "Each neuron was coding a different aspect of the face." The actual coding involves some complicated math. But the approach is a bit like having one cell measure a variable like the distance between a person's eyes while another cell looks at skin texture, Tsao says. And the system is so efficient that the team was able to accurately reconstruct the face a monkey was seeing using the signals from just 205 neurons. When placed side by
          As Brains Mature, More Robust Information Networks Boost Self-Control   
Impulsive children become thoughtful adults only after years of improvements to the brain's information highways, a team reports in Current Biology. A study of nearly 900 young people ages 8 to 22 found that the ability to control impulses, stay on task and make good decisions increased steadily over that span as the brain remodeled its information pathways to become more efficient. The finding helps explain why these abilities, known collectively as executive function, take so long to develop fully, says Danielle Bassett , an author of the study and an associate professor of bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. "A child's ability to run or to see is very well developed by the time they're 8," she says. "However, their ability to inhibit inappropriate responses is not something that's well developed until well into the 20s." The results also suggest it may be possible to identify adolescents at risk of problems related to poor executive function, says Joshua Gordon ,
          Electrical Stimulation To Boost Memory: Maybe It's All In The Timing   
People with a brain injury or dementia often struggle to remember simple things, like names or places. In research published Thursday in the journal Current Biology, scientists have shown it may be possible to improve this sort of memory using tiny pulses of electricity — if they're properly timed. A typical person's ability to remember things tends to vary a lot, says Michael Kahana, who directs the computational memory lab at the University of Pennsylvania. "Some days we're at the top of our game," he says, "and some days we're just off our game." That's also true for people whose memory has been impaired — by a brain injury or disease. So Kahana wondered whether there might be some way to help these people perform at their peak level all the time. "If they could just move their game up so that every day was their best day, then it would really significantly change their quality of life," Kahana says. He and a team of researchers thought they might be able to do this by stimulating
          Twitter Social Media is an Effective Tool for Breast Cancer Patient Education and Support: Patient-Reported Outcomes by Survey   
Background: Despite reported benefits, many women do not attend breast cancer support groups. Abundant online resources for support exist, but information regarding the effectiveness of participation is lacking. We report the results of a Twitter breast cancer support community participant survey. Objective: The aim was to determine the effectiveness of social media as a tool for breast cancer patient education and decreasing anxiety. Methods: The Breast Cancer Social Media Twitter support community (#BCSM) began in July 2011. Institutional review board approval with a waiver of informed consent was obtained for a deidentified survey that was posted for 2 weeks on Twitter and on the #BCSM blog and Facebook page. Results: There were 206 respondents to the survey. In all, 92.7% (191/206) were female. Respondents reported increased knowledge about breast cancer in the following domains: overall knowledge (80.9%, 153/189), survivorship (85.7%, 162/189), metastatic breast cancer (79.4%, 150/189), cancer types and biology (70.9%, 134/189), clinical trials and research (66.1%, 125/189), treatment options (55.6%, 105/189), breast imaging (56.6%, 107/189), genetic testing and risk assessment (53.9%, 102/189), and radiotherapy (43.4%, 82/189). Participation led 31.2% (59/189) to seek a second opinion or bring additional information to the attention of their treatment team and 71.9% (136/189) reported plans to increase their outreach and advocacy efforts as a result of participation. Levels of reported anxiety before and after participation were analyzed: 29 of 43 (67%) patients who initially reported “high or extreme” anxiety reported “low or no” anxiety after participation (P<.001). Also, no patients initially reporting low or no anxiety before participation reported an increase to high or extreme anxiety after participation. Conclusions: This study demonstrates that breast cancer patients’ perceived knowledge increases and their anxiety decreases by participation in a Twitter social media support group.

These were much bigger than any other caves I've visited in my life, with hundred-foot high ceilings and stalagmites bigger than Greyhound buses. Zhang Fengping and I were the only cave visitors, since everyone is at home today celebrating the holiday.

I was disappointed at the amount of destruction to the cave environment caused by opening it to visitors. The floors were paved over, the water artificially channeled and muddied, noisy polluting generators installed inside, and many cave formations badly damaged. The natural splendor of the cave was ruined by fake concrete stalactites and other artificial structures, electric fountains, and carnival-style games. Most caves here in Hangzhou are always full of bats, and you'd expect a cave so big to have millions of them, but I only saw a couple bats the whole time I was inside.

There wasn't a single bit of information available on the natural history or biology of the caves, or on cave conservation. There were no guides, and the only employees there just harassed us constantly trying to sell us photos or souvenirs. If they want to attract more visitors to the caves they should educate people about them and present the natural features of the caves, not man-made gimmicks. Otherwise Chinese people just see a bunch of weird-shaped rocks and don't realize that they took millions of years to form.

Also, they really should have guides to go with people to prevent them from damaging the delicate cave environment and disturbing cave animals. The graffiti carved all over the stalagmites and other formations will probably take thousands of years to heal, and the trash people throw can easily float to far reaches of the cave where it may remain for thousands of years or more.

The city of Hangzhou claims to care about environmental protection, but I say they fail miserably. They really only care about getting the most tourist revenue possible. They are definitely successful in attracting tens of millions of Chinese tourists every year, but maybe if they did a better job of protecting the environment here they could also attract more higher-paying foreign tourists in the future.

Really I should be glad these caves still exist at all. Other large limestone mountains all around the Zhoupu area and all over Zhejiang province have been blasted away completely and fed to cement plants. I guess it's better to have a half-destroyed cave than to lose the entire mountain and have no cave at all.

China has enormous quantities of limestone, and new caves are being discovered here all the time. Let's hope effort is made to protect some of these newly discovered caves before irreversible damage is done. That way cave formations and cave critters will be protected and future generations can enjoy the caves in the natural state.

          Double Yuck!   
DON'T read this if you get queasy easily. Really. You've been warned.

I've said it before, but it's worth saying again: I was never, ever going to be a nurse. It's my family profession, pretty much, and I was NOT going to do it. I used to become lightheaded from looking at hypodermic needles, once fainted at the sight of blood, and could not tolerate the least of bad smells.

Then I had pets. And kids. And every bodily fluid that could be spilled on me, eventually was. Silly me, I thought I was inured to disgusting stuff, so when I realized how much a nursing degree would benefit me, I dived right in.

I was SO wrong. During nursing school, I'd occasionally encounter something that would make me vomit (this did NOT thrill my patients) and once passed out during a surgical procedure that involved cauterization (between the sizzling sound and the smell, I just couldn't take it).

So I learned that there were certain things I couldn't look at, and certain things that I should avoid smelling if at all possible (a little Vick's VapoRub right under the nose works wonders).

This week, I encountered one of those smells, and I don't think Vick's would have helped, even if I'd had any.

I'm doing a study which requires fecal samples. Now, in general, I can send a kit home with my patient, and the patient will collect the sample and send it in. And I figured I'd never have to collect one, because really: who poops on command?

Evidently, at least one person in the world CAN and DID.

The disorder I am studying often makes for fatty, oily stools which have (to say the least) an intense stench. And this particular person was far more intense than most, so that the entire clinic seemed to choke on the fog of fumes issuing from the bathroom. With my eyes tearing from the noisome smell, gagging and retching furiously, I dashed in and collected what I needed and then flushed the rest.

Of course, EVERYONE in the clinic could hear me gag (and some of them were ALSO gagging). When I emerge, triumphant, my sample sealed in its container, the patient's family all look at me and start to laugh.

Patient's dad: "Hey, it could be worse! You should have been on the plane the year we went to Disneyland!"

Patient's mom: "Yes, the smell followed him out of the plane bathroom -- it was so thick you almost thought you could SEE it."

Patient: "Yeah, you could sure tell as soon as it got to the each row of seats! People started gagging!"

Patient's dad: "You should have seen the stewardess run back there!"

All three then laugh and high five each other...I am so glad it's a source of humor, and not a source of shame...and I'm also very glad I was NOT on that plane!

And also this week, my daughter, Alex, called with her own story of supreme yuckiness.

She's taking microbiology this semester, and for one of her labs she had to grow some bacteria at home. So she swabbed one of her dog's ears and put it in the culture medium, and it was growing quite nicely, with lumpy and smelly, yellow, black, green and red fuzzy crud covering a dinner plate.

Yesterday, one of her dogs jumped up on the table and licked the plate clean.

Not only is she avoiding dog kisses until she gets over the ick factor, but she gets to tell her instructor that "The dog ate my homework!"

          Noah, Lotsa Water, an Angry God, Gay Guys, and Ignorant Pastors   
Gotta admit, the whole rainbow thing is pretty gay.
You learn something new everyday.  Turns out not only did gay people cause the utter collapse of Ancient Greece and Rome, but they also brought about the biblical "Great Flood" of Noah's day.

As if the earth needed any more insanity and fact-twisting from our good friends on the Religious Right, a conservative pastor in Alabama USA (arguably the most conservative state in the union), is claiming that same-sex marriage was the true cause of the Great Flood described in Genesis.

On the radio station American Family Radio, the broadcasting arm of the American Family Association (WTF?), Aaron Fruh, pastor of Knollwood Assembly of God Church in Mobile, AL, went on a rant against marriage equality, saying:
"Find any society in human history that ever tried that experiment [i.e. same-sex marriage] and lived to tell about it; they've all been destroyed."
We're clearly dealing with a genius here.  And really?  "Knollwood"?  That's pretty gay sounding.  By the way, the Fruh-meister has previously stated that marriage equality is "heterophobic," believing that straights are the ones being picked on.

Fruh claims that the society that existed just prior to the flood of Noah was the only one prior to the present to offer same-sex marriage.  Yawn.
"The one society in history that first offered marriage certificates to same-sex couples, you'd think would be Sodom and Gomorrah, or Rome or Greece.  It was actually the society just prior to the flood of Noah.
"God knew that the people on the earth were going to destroy themselves through same-sex marriage, and so that's why he brought the flood. [...] Civilization was destroying itself, because there would be no more procreation; there would no longer be husbands and wives having children and furthering society."

Wow, this guy is making the dudes in Dumb and Dumber look like nuclear physicists.  He seems to think that same-sex marriage automatically means opposite-sex marriage will cease to exist, and all the men of the earth will jump at the chance to dump their hapless wives in the gutter in order to marry other men.  Men and women will simply stop having sex, no babies will be born, and the planet will be a human-free wasteland within 100 years... all because approximately 7% of the population will have the right to marry the person they love.

It's so utterly ridiculous.  It's like me saying I was 100% hetero until my country enacted equal marriage rights for LGBT people, then I magically switched teams and went gay.  Well, I didn't.  I'm still straight, as is everyone else who was straight before equal marriage became law.

Back in Noah's day, God was apparently too worried and impatient to simply let mankind destroy itself through gay marriage, so he decided to speed up the process a bit and make everybody take a permanent swim -- including all the animals and insects.

These reactionary nuts are great.  Honestly I'm not quite sure if any of them know how to read.  In any case it's pretty damn obvious none of them have ever picked up a world history, archeology, or anthropology book, let alone an updated biology book.  The only book they ever pick up is the Bible, a book they treat as a literal, factual encyclopedia, which it so isn't.

Aaron Fruh
Let's crush some dreams, shall we?

The "society just prior to the flood of Noah" to which Fruh is referring was known collectively as Mesopotamia.  I'm gonna take a wild guess and say he probably doesn't even know that.  Mesopotamia comprised what today is Iraq, northeastern Syria, and southeastern Turkey, and is known as "the Cradle of Civilization."  During the Bronze Age (the time in which Noah supposedly lived), the Sumerians and Akkadians (later including the Assyrians and Babylonians) dominated the region.

Nobody really knows when (or if) Noah actually lived, but we do know that ancient Hebrews did live in Mesopotamia in the Bronze Age and were influenced by local traditions, stories, and beliefs.  One of these included the Epic of Gilgamesh, an over four-millennia-old myth describing a great deluge that impacted the region.  The myth appears to have been borne out of an actual regional flood (or series of floods) that did happen along the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.

Gilgamesh was a king during the Dynasty of Uruk, ca. 2500 BCE, but the evidence for two large regional floods found in the soil strata pre-date his reign by more than 1,000 years.  Regional floods, mind you, not global.

Mesopotamian societies did not issue 'marriage certificates' to same-sex couples (nor did the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, for that matter).  Have you ever noticed how Right-wingers love to feel smart and toss out random pieces of information without giving any specifics or backing up their conclusions?  The art of saying "this is true because I say it's true" is their specialty.  That's because they don't know what the hell they're talking about.  They're just babbling.

Unfortunately marriage certificates don't survive the passage of time so well, unless they're carved in stone.  They're not, by the way.  What we do have are various texts from Ancient Mesopotamia, including several Law Codes which were, in fact (glory be), carved in stone.  The Codes of the Urukagina (2375 BCE), Ur-Nammu (2100 BCE), Eshnunna (1750 BCE), and the most famous, the Code of Hammurabi (1726 BCE), essentially ignore same-sex acts even though they heavily regulate marriage.

Two laws from the Middle Assyrian Code of Assur in the 12th-century BCE mention same-sex acts in a way that is curiously most similar to another Ancient Near Eastern law code of the time:  the Holiness Code of the Old Testament book of Leviticus.  Interestingly, the Code of Assur pre-dates the Hebrew Holiness Code by roughly six-hundred years.
"If a seignior [an Assyrian man] lay with his neighbor [another Assyrian male], when they have prosecuted him and convicted him [i.e. the first man], they shall lie with him and turn him into a eunuch"  (Table A, Paragraph 20).

The situation described is one in which a man has forced sex upon a local resident or business partner, who then has the option of bringing a charge against him.  Take note that the penetrator is punished here, not the man penetrated, so the crime is clearly rape.  Apparently his punishment for raping another man is that he is himself raped by a group of men (presumably the jury of his peers who found him guilty).  Ouch.

Homosexuality itself is not condemned (because the ancients had no concept of sexual orientation as modern science has taught us today), nor were same-sex acts looked upon as immoral or disordered.  A man could visit a prostitute or sleep with another male, as long as false rumors or forced sex were not involved with another Assyrian male.

Pictorial and literary references from Mesopotamia surviving today show an acceptance of some forms of same-sex behavior while expressing a wariness of other forms.  Anal sex between men was clearly depicted in figurative art in the cities of Babylon, Uruk, Assur, and Susa, and these images show that it was usually carried out as part of religious ritual.

Cult prostitution was common throughout the Ancient Near East, involving both opposite-sex and same-sex activity.  Male and female cult prostitutes had intercourse with male worshipers in sanctuaries and temples throughout Mesopotamia, Phoenecia, Cyrpus, Corinth, etc., such as in the relief below from 2000 BCE showing a male worshiper penetrating a male priest (an assinu).   Noted sexual historian Norman Sussman states in his piece, Sex and Sexuality in History, that:

"Male and female prostitutes, serving temporarily or permanently and performing heterosexual, homosexual, oral-genital, bestial, and other forms of sexual activities, dispensed their favors on behalf of the temple.  The prostitute and the client acted as surrogates for the deities."
A manual called the Summa alu, which prognosticated the future based on sexual acts, declared that:

"If a man copulates with an assinu [a male transvestitic (eunuch) priest], trouble will leave him."
This sexual use of priests and temple prostitutes by the people groups surrounding ancient Israel was likely the main reason the Talmud (Jewish Bible, i.e. Old Testament) said anal sex was a no-no.  "Everyone else's priests get used as an act of worship to their gods, but there's no way in hell we're gonna have our priests doing that as an act of worship to Yahweh."  The ancient Jews were obsessed with being separate, different, and distinguishable from other tribes and nations, as well as obsessed with ritual purity.

As with other societies in the Ancient Near East, however, including Ancient Greece and Rome, what mattered in Mesopotamia was the role and status of a sexual partner, especially the penetrated partner, and the ramifications that may follow.  The partner's biological sex didn't matter.  Scholar and historian Dr. William Naphy, in his book A History of Homosexuality, takes note of:

"how few cultures seem to have any significant 'moral' concern about same-sex activities. ...Most cultures seemed to accept that males might have sex with other males" -- although for a male to assume the passive position in intercourse was thought to make him 'less than male,' unless he was an adolescent.
Laws banned only certain negative acts that may be connected to either heterosexuality or homosexuality, such as slander, rape, and incest.  It is known that kings had male lovers along with their wives, warriors occasionally developed romantic relationships, and ordinary men customarily had anal intercourse with male and female cultic personnel.

All this is fine and well, but does it tell us whether ancient Mesopotamians actually endorsed and sanctioned same-sex marriage?  No.  Evidence of same-sex marriage is at best indirect, but there are historical bits and pieces suggesting that certain same-sex relationships could be intimate and comparable to opposite-sex marriages.  The celebrated story of King Gilgamesh, who had such a relationship with a man named Enkidu, exemplifies this.  "I loved him, and caressed him as though a wife," the tale records Gilgamesh as saying.

Example of Hittite cuneiform tablet
Hittite Laws can be read to suggest that same-sex marriage may have been legally as well as culturally sanctioned in at least some parts of ancient Mesopotamia.  Table I of the Hittite Laws, for example, regulated marriage, specifically the husband's payment of bride-price to the wife.  Oh those were days, weren't they?  When a man could buy a woman from her father and acquire a permanent maid and baby-making machine.  Jeesh.

Although it was assumed that this regulation applied to the advantage of free Hittite citizens, special provisions in Table I afforded explicit legal authority for slaves to obtain brides in this way; otherwise, slaves apparently could not marry.

For example, section 34 provided:  "If a slave gives the brideprice to a woman and takes her as his wife, no-one shall [make him] surrender her."'  By one reading, section 36 then provided that, "[I]f a slave gives the bride-price to a free youth and takes him to dwell in his household as spouse, no-one shall [make him] surrender him."  If the quoted reading is correct, a male slave with money (the bride-price) to pay for a male spouse could do so and expect that the transaction would be backed up by law.  And, of course, if a slave were allowed to do this, it would go without saying that a free Hittite citizen could do the same.

So, there is speculative evidence for same-sex relationships (and possibly marriages) in Mesopotamia, but hard historical proof just isn't there.  It is also clear from surviving legal codes that producing offspring was an essential aspect of adulthood.  It was expected and, in some instances, required.  So while same-sex relationships may have existed here and there among the upper classes, it seems they were not widespread among the common masses.

The reason I went through this topic in some detail, is because Aaron Fruh's "objection" to marriage equality is the kind of ignorant nonsense the pro-equality side is up against everyday.  If you have the facts - as in actual historical facts - you can dismantle the regurgitated babble of the Religious Right with ease.  If you know the truth you can speak up and set the record straight, putting an end to the lies the anti-equality side love to tell.

Of course, any topic delving into God's wrath, arks, and floods, is bound to be contentious from the outset.  Scientific evidence does not point to a massive global flood ever happening at any point in Earth's history.  The original Hebrew of the book of Genesis spells this fact out as well, using the Hebrew term kol erets to refer to "the whole earth."  Kol erets is used elsewhere in the Old Testament referring to local geography, i.e. the region where the author was from.  In other words: the world known to the author/s.  Had literally the entire planet been meant, the word tebel would have been used, which means the literal planet Earth.  But tebel was not used.

Regional floods did happen quite frequently in Mesopotamia, and some were large and incredibly destructive, claiming many lives.  These can be backed up by historical records and archaeology.  It is most likely that one of these floods, or the massive Black Sea flood that occurred some 7,500 years ago, left an indelible mark on the psyche of the region's people, and was passed down through oral traditions as a parable about being good and not angering the gods/God.

Finally, based on the flood narrative in Genesis 6:1-13, same-sex marriage is simply not listed as one of its causes.  The story states that:
  1. The human race had become "wicked" and "evil."
  2. There were "giants in the land" (either as a result of breeding between fallen angels and human women, or of wicked, heathen men marrying pious women who believed in God, thereby corrupting their faith and producing wicked (demon-possessed?) tyrants as their offspring -- the exact meaning is rather ambiguous). 
  3. The rulers of the land were haughty conquerors who "were praised by all men."
  4. The peoples' thoughts were "thoughts of only evil continually" (i.e. violent and oppressive toward one another).
  5. Brutal violence, hatred, and corruption were everywhere.
  6. Men were taking wives of other faiths and other tribes purely for lustful, carnal reasons (this taps into the Hebrew forbiddance of intermarriage in order to retain purity).
  7. Polygamy is implied to have been rampant and celebrated.
  8. The population was exploding as never before.

Doesn't exactly sound like men were abandoning women for men, or that the human race was threatened with extinction.  Quite the opposite in fact, in both regards.

Granted, Fruh claims his "evidence" comes from the Mishnah (specifically the Midrash Rabbah Genesis), a 3rd-century CE redaction of Jewish oral tradition, which does mention that men married men.  But the Mishnah commentary also claims that bestiality was rampant prior to the flood; that these were the days when witchcraft and sorcery flourished; and suggests that human sacrifices weren't uncommon.  Could not these have been more damning activities in God's eyes?  Commenting that humanity "corrupted its way," as the Mishnah states, sounds far more like a result of rampant bestiality to me.

It's important, however, not to place too much weight on the Mishnah.  For starters, it's not the Bible.  It's a commentary of oral traditions (known as the 'Oral Torah'), gathered from among Jewish Sages in the late 2nd century CE and written down by one man: Rabbi Judah HaNasi.  This was at least 2,500 years after the supposed events occurred.  It's simply impossible for anyone to know the exact details of what was going on over two millennia prior, based purely on word-of-mouth stories.  The Sages were giving their thoughts and opinions based on the time and culture in which they lived.

The time the Mishnah was written down (ca. 200 CE) also happened to be a time of extreme patriarchal conservatism among Christians and Jews alike, and Israel was at that time a province of Rome.  The compiler of the Mishnah could not have avoided reading the dominant culture of the day (the Greco-Roman culture) into his narratives of Old Testament stories and regulations, nor could the Sages who past on those oral traditions.  In other words, "We despise the Romans because they're immoral and wicked, therefore if Moses said the society of Noah's day was immoral and wicked, it must have been doing the things that Roman society is doing now."

Most scholars point out that, in terms of its historical accuracy and content, the Mishnah contains extensive editorial reshaping of stories and statements, with few outside confirming texts.

Secondly, if men marrying men had been the primary cause of God's wrath, it seems the authors of Genesis would have at least mentioned it in passing as being one of the causes.  But in fact the authors say the opposite:  men were marrying women and the population was booming.  Furthermore, Jesus never mentions men marrying men (or even general same-sex behavior) as being a reason for this flood or any other tale of supposed divine judgment.

Thirdly, and most importantly, there is no historical, geographical, fossil, or archaeological evidence of a literal global flood in the first place.  The tale is likely a cautionary parable adapted from other similar Ancient Near Eastern flood stories.

I hope beyond hope that some day people will start to open other books aside from the Bible, and turn their ignorance into factual knowledge.  The world would be such a smarter place, and perhaps Aaron Fruh would stop saying such foolish things.



          P.U.S.H. Pilipinas   
700 Club Asia hosts Kata Inocencio and Peter Kairuz
Right out of the gate, allow me to say that I applaud CBN Asia (Christian Broadcasting Network) and its nightly show, 700 Club Asia, for the many good works that they do, such as Operation Blessing.  There are many decent, caring people involved in the organization, and I do not doubt that they love God.

Every so often, though, like their mother ship network CBN USA and its founder, Pat Robertson, 700 Club Asia chooses to jump on the crazy train.  This is what they did during their June 11, 2012, broadcast which aired on Philippine TV network GMA.

As part of their week-long P.U.S.H. Pilipinas specials (which stands for Pray Until Something Happens, Philippines), the opening salvo was entitled "Pamilyang Pilipino, Gaano Katatag?" (The Filipino Family, How Strong Is It?).

I was saddened, but not surprised, to hear in it the usual conservative evangelical fear of the unknown (in this case of same-sex marriage), which was presented as a "major threat to the country's strong family ties."  They even played ominous sounding music when showing pictures and videos of LGBT Filipinos.  Unfortunately there was also an unhealthy dose of non-factual "science."

I can handle the conservative rhetoric -- it's actually kind of entertaining to listen to them panic over the prospect of gay people being treated equally -- but I cannot abide shoddy information being presented as scientific fact.

One perpetrator of such pseudo-science is Bayani Esguerra, pastor of Word International Ministries.  "[Homosexuality] is not genetic," he said matter of factly in a lengthy interview during the broadcast.  "It is an acquired behavior."  Esguerra also happens to conveniently be Board Chairperson of Bagong Pag-Asa, the Philippines' own reparative "therapy" organization which attempts to have gay men pray their gay away.

Esguerra seems like a nice guy with a nice smile, nice hair, and nice polo shirt.  But his 'science' is just plain wrong.

This is what frustrates me to no end:  when someone who is not an authority in the field of science (in this case a pastor) makes declarations on matters of science as though they are an authority in the field of science. 

Bayani, you're a pastor.  Stick to pastoring.  You clearly haven't spent much time in a genetics laboratory.

Esguerra went on for days about how God made men and women for each other, about Adam and Eve and being fruitful and multiplying, and all the other goodies that conservative Christians like to throw around ad nauseum.  That's his theological belief and that's fine.  But when he treads on science - which is my field - and twists data to make it sound as though science has concluded that there is no genetic component to homosexuality, well, that pisses this biologist off.

What Esguerra stated definitively, and what 700 Club Asia's hosts then repeated blindly, is that studies of twins have found that homosexuality is nothing more than a behavioral lifestyle choice that can (and should) be changed.  It is not, according to Esguerra, genetic.  This, to his mind, is because studies conducted involving identical twins did not find that both twins were gay 100% of the time.  In the slash-and-burn mind of the hardline biblical literalist, the case is therefore closed.

Well, I'm truly sorry, but that's not quite how biology works.

I know the topic of homosexuality and genetics can get incredibly detailed and confusing, and that is precisely why people who are not scientists (people like... ohhh, pastors, for example) ought not skim through medical journal essays and then "report" to others what they think they read.  Sorry to say, but taking a biology class in high school doesn't make a person a geneticist, any more than baking a ready-mix cake makes a person a five star chef.

The very best scientific evidence today points to the environment and genes both playing a role together in homosexuality.  Bear in mind that, in science-speak, "the environment" doesn't necessarily mean the home one was raised in, but rather means biological influences in the womb, e.g. hormones.

To sort this out, scientists often employ studies of twins.  In such a study, identical twins are compared to fraternal twins.  If something happens more often in identical twins, then that something is influenced by genes.  This is because identical twins have the exact same genes, whereas fraternal twins share only as many genes as any brother or sister.

There have been a number of twin studies, and all show similar results.  In one of the largest such studies (conducted by Bailey and Pillard) it was found that if one identical twin is gay, the other is also gay 52% of the time.  If the twins were fraternal, they were both gay 22% of the time.  For non-twin biological siblings the rate dropped to roughly 11%.  All other twin studies have shown the same pattern.  What this shows is that there is a genetic component; there is something in the genes that makes them more likely to be gay.

But genetics alone isn't everything.  If it were, identical twins would both be gay 100% of the time.  And if it were all environment, identical twins would both be gay as often as fraternal twins, which they're not.  This is where our good friend Bayani Esguerra and his allies get confused and start thumping their Bibles.

"See?," they say.  "Homosexuality is a choice because twins only turn out gay 50% of the time.  Yes!  We win!"

Nope, you don't.  Science wins on this one.

At first glance the results seem to suggest that at least some homosexuality must not be genetic.  If identical twins have the same genes, how could one turn out gay and the other not gay as often as 50% of the time?  This is precisely what Bayani Esguerra is thinking.  There are, however, many traits that are not always the same in identical twins, like eye color.  They have the same DNA, but the activity of their genes isn't necessarily the same, and the reason for that is a process called methylation.

Methylation turns off certain sections of genetic code.  So even though we inherit two copies of every gene - one from our mother and one from our father - whether the gene is methylated often determines which of the two genes will be turned on.  Methylation is inherited, just like DNA, but unlike DNA it can change from one generation to the next and may be influenced by things like long-term use of certain medications, smoking, exposure to viruses, or even something as simple as the mother's diet, just to name a few prenatal environmental factors.

Regardless, the concordance rate of identical twins is more than twice that of fraternal twins.  What that means is that neither the social nor prenatal environment alone can explain this significant difference.  The only variable at play is the different genetic code of fraternal twins compared to the identical genetic code of identical twins.  This demonstrates that genes are extremely important factors in determining sexuality.

The principle difference in comparing rates between fraternal twins and non-twin siblings (22% to 11%, respectively) is the prenatal environment.  Fraternal twins share the prenatal environment, they are womb-mates, while non-twin siblings are not.  The fact that the homosexual concordance rate for fraternal twins is more than twice that of non-twin siblings shows that the prenatal environment is also a significant factor in the development of homosexuality.

See, Bayani?  It gets a bit complex.  It is this interplay of prenatal environment and genes that most often results in homosexuality.  (Remember, prenatal environment has to do with how the brain is hardwired very early on.)  In the womb, things happen that affect how we develop.  A surge of hormones here, a viral influence there, and we are not the same as we would be without these environmental factors.

We can look at handedness as a good example here.  Some people have genes that make them more likely to be left-handed.  Not all of these people end up lefties, though.  Something else happens during fetal development.  Science hasn't pinpointed precisely what this something is, but it is crystal clear that the combination of genes and environment makes a person left-handed.

This is not dissimilar from what makes a person gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.  And, of course, since the brain continues to develop after we're born, the postnatal environment can affect how the brain develops even after a child draws its first breath, though to a far lesser degree.

Conservative biblical literalists like Esguerra claim that, because no one single 'gay gene' has been found, homosexuality is unequivocally a learned behavior with no biological basis.  Of course they say that; that's easy to do when you completely dismiss the prenatal environment and the fact that many genetic traits are caused by a series of genes working in concert.

(For further details, I visited the topic of the evangelical assertion that "there is no scientific conclusion that there is a gay gene" in a previous post.)

This insistence of theirs is based on their interpretation of the Bible, not on science.  They're trying to make science fit their theology, rather than allowing modern science to shed light on ancient beliefs that are turning out to be less than spot on.  This non-academic bias then allows them to deny biological causes of homosexuality, fight against gay rights and demonize the LGBT community, all while claiming to be God's mouthpiece of family values and love on earth.

Esguerra takes his cues from the playbook of the so-called "ex-gay" organization Exodus International in the U.S., anti-gay evangelical leader Pat Robertson, as well as James Dobson's Focus on the Family group, all of which continue to foolishly tout that there is no genetic cause for homosexuality.

Take this excerpt from right-wing Christian activist Peter Sprigg's book, Outrage: How Gay Activists and Liberal Judges are Trashing Democracy to Redefine Marriage, as an example.  (Yes, by the way, that's the actual title of his book.)
"If you did a study of identical twins, you would find that one hundred percent of black identical twins would be black, one hundred percent of male identical twins would be male, one hundred percent of redheaded identical twins would be redheads, and one hundred percent of blue-eyed identical twins would have blue eyes.  Remember, identical twins (known to scientists as "dizygotic,' [sic] meaning that they come from the same fertilized egg) have a completely, one hundred percent identical genetic makeup.  Therefore, a study showing that 52 percent of the identical twins of homosexuals are also homosexual proves only one thing - that homosexuality is not genetic." (Outrage, pp. 39-40)

No, what it proves is that Sprigg is no scientist.  He's actually a Baptist minister and Senior Fellow at the Family Research Council who has testified against gay rights and marriage equality in several U.S. courts... And, not surprisingly, his side has lost every time.

His argument (at least what he thinks is an argument) highlights the all-or-nothing mentality for biology held by most evangelical leaders.  It's the black-and-white way in which they see things.  Unfortunately for them, though, human sexuality is anything but black-and-white, and neither is science.  They incorrectly assume that because some of the identical twins had differing sexual orientations, homosexuality is therefore not genetic.

Hopefully now, you, the reader, can identify this not as science but as science fiction.

Oh and by the way, Sprigg's information is wrong in another way, too.  Identical twins are not dizygotic, they are monozygotic, meaning from one (i.e. mono) fertilized egg.  Fraternal twins are dizygotic.

You can argue your theology all you want; it is entirely open to interpretation and debate.  But if you're not a scientist, don't take scientific data and twist it to fit what you think it should say.  In my experience pastors don't make very good scientists.  I don't want them interpreting scientific data any more than I'd want a race car driver diagnosing a complicated medical condition.

So, 700 Club Asia, Pamilyang Pilipino is doing just fine.  Your nation will survive to see tomorrow, even if your government decides it's finally time to recognize all Filipino families.  It might be a better use of time and energy to focus on corruption, drug abuse, and poverty, for those things are far more of a threat to Pamilyang Pilipino than any amount of same-sex couples could ever be.

P.U.S.H. Pilipinas?  Sure, I'll bite.  But I'll be praying for progress to happen in the Pilipinas - not more of the same, blind, inaccurate religious rhetoric.

(For what it's worth, you can watch 700 Club Asia's Pamilyang Pilipino episode here.  It's an hour-long program, but the first 12 minutes or so are the most revealing.)

          Science protocols - Recipe for success?   
I enjoy cooking and baking, and while I own my share of well-thumbed cookbooks, on a day to day basis I am likely to find my recipes on my favorite cooking websites. There are a number of good ones out there, including Epicurious and Food Network, but the one I go to 99% of the time is AllRecipes.

Why do I prefer this website? For one, the look and feel is inviting, intuitive, and informative. There is no barrier to entry and novice and expert cooks alike will find what they need easily without intimidation or pandering. A nice perk is the ability to search by ingredients, helping you find recipes that will use what you have on hand. But the most important feature is content - the community at Allrecipes is substantial and helpful, not only providing the recipes themselves, but also feedback on the recipes that is often corroborated multiple times. Tips like decreasing the number of eggs or doubling the sauce, roasting at a lower temperature for longer, cutting out the salt, or adding more lime juice can truly be the difference between a successful dish and not.

There has been a lot of discussion on science social networking sites and on whether the promise of "web 2.0" is being delivered in science yet (see David Crotty's post at CSH, Bora's question, and musings at The Scientist over on NN). Some reasons why so-called Science 2.0 hasn't been catching on include the fact that scientists are extremely busy and don't have time to invest in familiarizing themselves with new online networking sites or web tools that have no immediately obvious benefit to them (though some disagree with the claim that scientists are busier than those in other fields). As David points out, much of it boils down to inertia: if we already have a way of doing things, the only way we'll change is if the new way is obviously advantageous and it doesn't take too much effort to adopt it.

It was while reading these related discussions that I started thinking about scientific protocols and how much added benefit could be derived from community content. There are protocol websites out there (OpenWetWare, CSH Protocols, etc) which are a great start, but for the most part these are put up by the original user or published by a journal and rarely generate feedback that could be useful to those looking for a particular protocol - such as slight temperature changes, buffer modifications, or other tweaks that either led to better results or fixed problems. Although it's been a while since I've worked in a wet lab, it seems that a lot of fine optimization goes into a protocol before it produces what is eventually published, and this can often take months to refine.

Given how similar protocols are to recipes, is it that far of a stretch to imagine a protocol version of AllRecipes giving similar benefits? Just as you save time, money, and ingredients by learning from other cooks, you would save time, money, and resources in the lab from other researchers. Granted, this assumes that scientists aren't the type who would say, "What - give other labs a head start by learning from my mistakes? Are you crazy!?" but instead would say, "Think of how much this could help science in general if we all helped each other do experiments more efficiently!" Imagine going to a protocol website, searching by your requirements (protein name, species, type of assay, perhaps), going to the highest rated protocol, and reading a number of reviews that unanimously suggest tweaking one particular step. Or imagine finding the quickest (30-min meals)/most efficient (10 dinners for under $10!)/most popular (95% of people choose this recipe)/best (rated 5 stars by 500 users) protocols for doing X Y or Z as reviewed by scientists like you.

Some might find this kind of crowdsourcing offputting for the scientific domain, others might say it's about time. I know the picture is not so simple, but it just seems silly that we're not benefiting from what other fields (like cooking) have already embraced. Funding is scarce and time is a precious enough resource as it is - why waste both by banging our heads against the same wall others have banged on when we can move forward by finding the door?

I'd be interested to learn if there are actually any protocol websites out there that more fully resemble the types of recipe websites I mention. The solution isn't to create an AllRecipes for protocols (as David mentions in his post) but to provide a service that is useful to scientists and that encourages them to participate. Since the application area is more focused than general science collaboration/networking sites, are the benefits more obvious and will it gain traction more easily?

And for something that is neither here nor there, what is it about science that keeps it from exploiting and embracing the web the way practically everything else has done? (I have inklings but would enjoy hearing others' opinions.)
          Gregory Petsko on "the right to be wrong"   
Gregory Petsko expounds eloquently on the "climate of fear" in science in a recent commentary in Genome Biology, titled "The right to be wrong." Drawing a provocative parallel to US politics, he describes how honest, intelligent people willing to admit their (almost always) understandable mistakes are turned on and burned at the stake for by their opponents, accused of lacking integrity and being "flip-floppers" . In science, the attacks are much less direct, but the attitude is still entrenched, and the vast majority of scientists are opting for "safe", incremental, "data gathering/discovery" based research as opposed to bold, hypothesis-driven science. The sentiment is echoed by funding agencies who do not want to risk funding anything that might "fail."

The commentary, although ominous at first, should inspire us all to behave as true scientists should - boldly but carefully, objectively and rationally.
          AMIA Summit on Translational Bioinformatics   





Hundreds of clinical scientists, biologists, bioinformaticians, and policy gurus descended on the swanky Intercontinental Mark Hopkins hotel for the first AMIA-sponsored Summit on Translational Bioinformatics last week. Stanford's Atul Butte rallied impressive troops for this inaugural meeting, including the leaders of all of the National Centers for Biomedical Computation (NCBCs, 7 or so total). Since translational bioinformatics is not simply about research, but about translating research into tangible benefits (clinical diagnostics, therapeutics, and standard of care), this meant a many faceted conversation involving basic researchers, large-scale integrative projects (e.g. caBIG, the NCBCs), clinical scientists, informaticians, and government agencies. This was reflected by the structure of the meeting, which consisted of tutorials; policy, technology, and organization panels; primary paper sessions; and posters covering topics ranging from how to establish collaborative projects to ontologies and phenomics.

Given the breadth of the audience, I'm sure the highlights of the conference vary from person to person. Below are some of mine:

Eitan Rubin from Ben Gurion University, Israel (Talk highlight). "Reverse translational bioinformatics: a bioinformatics assay of age, gender and clinical biomarker." A self-proclaimed biologist, Eitan presented some intriguing work in what he called "reverse translational bioinformatics" - using clinical/medical data to make useful discoveries about biology. As an additional aim, he strove to show that existing bioinformatics tools could be applied to clinical data with little modification. To do this, he took an immense data set - thousands of variables collected for tens of thousands of individuals (part of a nutrition and lifestyle survey that was epidemiological in nature), including laboratory tests, questionnaire answers, and medication data - and essentially turned it into a microarray after binning by age. Note that this was a proxy for clinical data since no such data is currently publicly available. He then subjected this array to the same kinds of analyses one would perform on an array of molecular biological data: normalization, calculation of median values, clustering by age and variable. The results encompassed both the expected and the surprising. For example, when he clustered by age, he found distinct boundaries between somewhat intuitive ages - at 12 yrs and 16 yrs for both sexes, at 40 yrs for women and again around 49, and around 45 for men; these could point to interesting biological changes going on at these age boundaries. He also plotted the median values for variables like serum lead level vs age and found distinct patterns. At this point, he has only begun to analyze the enormous amounts of data, and more interesting patterns are sure to emerge. In the meantime, it helps drive home the potential behind open data and data (and methods!) re-use.

Yael Garten from Stanford University (talk highlight). "Pharmspresso: a text analysis tool for linking pharmacogenomic concepts." [Disclaimer: Yael and I are colleagues in the same lab and I helped to critique her presentation.] Yael's work on a semantic, scoped search engine for pharmacogenomics is worth mentioning because of its immediate and potential utility. Pharmspresso allows a user to query a corpus of documents (currently about a thousand pharmacogenomic-related articles previously curated by the PharmGKB team) for keywords, genes, drugs, and/or polymorphisms occurring in the same sentences. Based on the Textpresso ontology created for mining the C.elegans literature, Pharmspresso includes semantic support for human genes, drugs, and genetic polymorphisms and additionally improves upon more general search engines such as Google and PubMed by limiting the scope of the hits to the sentence-level and returning hits color-coded within each sentence for easy evaluation of search results. Pharmspresso has already helped the PharmGKB curators and in the future will be incorporated into an automatic curation pipeline.

Selected papers to be published in BMC Bioinformatics. At the close of the conference, the surprise announcement was made that 15 of the 27 presented papers had been selected to be published in a summer issue of BMC Bioinformatics as a joint agreement between the Open Access journal and AMIA, who would foot the bill. The papers would need to be expanded and updated for submission but the peer review process had happened for the conference and so they were already considered accepted for the journal. A couple of big conferences already do something similar - ISMB/ECCB and RECOMB - but it would be great if every major conference had some kind of arrangement like this with a journal. It seems like it would be a win-win for everyone - peer-review already taken care of, an increased audience for that issue of the journal, and a nice CV boost for the authors (and no more hard decisions between presenting at a conference vs publishing in a journal). Given the fact that this was the very first meeting for this conference, it was a very nice surprise indeed.

Thoughtful A/V setup. This is simply a logistical highlight. We've all sat through our share of technical difficulties, but this conference (at least in the main room) was astonishingly free of them. A large part of this was due to the presence of dedicated A/V staff who knew just when to dim and raise the lights, cue mood music, and put up the "transition screen" - a screen blank except for the AMIA logo. This screen went up whenever a presenter's slides were NOT up, and prevented those awkward moments when the audience could see the desktop of the presenter's laptop or the view of the Powerpoint application. It was also nice not to have to see the blue or black screens when video input was changed. All in all, it imparted a much-appreciated professional touch to the conference which other meetings would do well to emulate.

In summary, there were some informative panels on various policies and the NCBCs, interesting research, and nice extras that made this first Summit on Translational Bioinformatics a big success!
          Anatomy of a Ph.D. thesis   
Let's face it: life is complicated. But thanks to the ever-flourishing DIY industry (for example, WikiHow), a lot of endeavors that used to seem complicated are made much less so through step by step instructions. In science, experimental protocols already do this, at least in theory, but what about other aspects of science, like writing papers, keeping up with literature, making presentations, or networking at conferences? My advisor has given informal talks for his students on a number of these topics, the latest of which was a set of general guidelines for writing a Ph.D. thesis.

In order of their appearance in the final document...
  • Chapter 1 - Introduction. This is essentially an executive summary. You should briefly describe all contributions your thesis makes to your field, provide at least one "gee-whiz" result, and lay out a roadmap for the rest of the thesis ("In Chapter 2, I present the background... In Chapter 3, I discuss my work on X...."). It is acceptable to make claims without proof, since you will be defending these later on.
  • Chapter 2 - Background. This is essentially a literature review, and demonstrates your understanding of the field and the context surrounding your work. For bioinformatics theses, this covers both the biomedical domain and the area of informatics or computation your work involves. You should present an intellectual framework in which your work fits - what has been done, the advantages and limitations of this previous work, the potential avenues for improvement, and where you come in. Ideally, this chapter could be published as a review article with very little modification.
The next couple chapters are the meat of the thesis, and can take at least two forms depending on what kind of work you did during your Ph.D. If you worked on several somewhat disjoint projects and published 2 or 3 papers on them, you can write one chapter for each paper (but no more than 3). If you worked on just one problem, you are probably better off writing a chapter for the methods and a chapter for the results and discussion (if you developed two approaches for the same problem, you can repeat this for the second approach). So:
  • GENERAL THEME: Several projects
    Chapter 3 - Methods, Results, and Discussion from paper 1
    Chapter 4 - Methods, Results, and Discussion from paper 2
    (Chapter 5 - Methods, Results, and Discussion from paper 3, if applicable)
    FOCUSED THEME: Single project

    Chapter 3 - Methods
    Chapter 4 - Results/Discussion
    (Chapters 5 and 6 - Methods and Results/Discussion for approach 2, if applicable)

    In general, you do not want to reuse text from your published papers verbatim, despite how tempting this can be. Papers are very strict and limit what you can express, so you should see your thesis as an opportunity to pontificate and give voice to your ideas. You should also form your thesis into a detailed guide of everything you tried, even some of the things that didn't work, so that it can be a reference to future generations of grad students who may pursue extensions of your research.
  • Chapter 6 or 7, depending on type of thesis - Summary chapter. Describe overall contributions to the relevant domains. (For biomedical informatics theses, describe the overall contributions to biology or medicine, and the overall contributions to informatics or engineering. If applicable, you may also describe core contributions to computer science.) Here is where you also discuss the limitations of the work, the unsolved problems, and your best ideas for how to solve them.

  • Appendices - supplementary material. Almost anything goes, but you should definitely include all key data and datasets (information needed to recreate the major results from your thesis). Ideally, all data relevant to your thesis (and other related work, if possible) will be stored and/or made available either on the web or as a physical copy, though this is mostly for the advisor as a reference for future students. If you have any proofs or supplementary material, these should be in an appendix. You can also include additional work or papers published unrelated to your thesis.
So that explained what each chapter of the thesis should be about; what about actually writing the thesis? My advisor's recommendation is to start with the meat chapters (Ch. 3 - 6/7) since you should have pretty much all the necessary material to begin with, then write Chapter 2, then write the first and last chapters.

More specific advice on how to actually write each chapter was not covered and probably warrants its own post. Note that this is my advisor's take on the Ph.D. thesis; I'm sure there are some other interpretations, which would be interesting to hear! How much does the thesis vary by field?

Before she confronts death straight on, Melissa Connor always puts on a pair of rubber boots. The shelf she takes the shoes from includes a bottle of hand sanitizer, a sign warning people to check their shoes for scorpions and a bundle of wooden stakes, each of which will eventually be marked with the abbreviation "Mr." or "Ms." followed by a number.

Then Connor opens the back door of her lab, located just outside Grand Junction, Colo., and steps onto a gravel path. It's squint-your-eyes bright out here, and everything is dry — the air, the crumbly dirt, the scrubby plants. The only movement comes from the wind, an occasional car on the nearby highway and the prairie dogs that come out of their dens to chatter at intruders.

"I think we have the most scenic of the decomposition facilities, myself," says Connor, a forensic scientist at Colorado Mesa University, as she approaches a fenced plot of land on rolling hills of sagebrush, with snow-topped mountains in the distance. A whiff of something that smells like a cross between stagnant pond and roadkill wafts by.

This site is officially called the Forensic Investigation Research Station, but people sometimes refer to the small plot Connor is walking toward as a "body farm."

She arrives at a 10-foot-tall fence — topped with razor wire, with a second gate in front of that. The double barrier keeps curious people from peering through the cracks in the big fence.

"Yeah. There are oh-so-many reasons for the big fence," says Connor. It's sunk 2 feet into the ground and, among other things, keeps coyotes from walking off with human body parts. "Wouldn't be good P.R.," Connor explains.

(Editor's note: Those readers who are squeamish about descriptions of decaying bodies may want to skip the next nine paragraphs.)

The small plot, about an acre in size, contains rows of human remains. There are 36 bodies in all — donated either by the people themselves, in instructions before death, or by their families after the fact. The bodies are naked, and lying face-up as if cloud-gazing.

There are seven "body farm" facilities like these across the U.S. This is the only decomposition site west of the Mississippi, and the only one in a dry climate.

"This is Mr. 1612," says Connor as she stands over a body teeming with maggots and flies. "He came in late in 2016. The insects have found the incisions from the autopsy and laid their eggs there, and they're doing their thing."

"Aggressive wriggling," adds Christiane "Chrissie" Baigent, a research assistant at the station, who checks on the bodies daily. She's the one who will eventually collect each set of remains once they've finished decomposing, bring them to a gentle boil in the lab to remove any remaining tissue, and mark each bone with a number before adding the skeleton to a slowly growing teaching collection.

"There's no one, absolutely no one, who looks good in decomp," says Connor, who trained as an archaeologist before excavating mass graves in Croatia, Rwanda, Cyprus and Iraq — primarily with a group called Physicians for Human Rights.

Connor and Baigent are so accustomed to the sight and smell of rotting human bodies that their stomachs will growl at lunchtime, even if at that very moment they're crouched over a bloated corpse.

Usually, bodies go from greenish to grayish to brown and black as generations of insects eat everything except the skeleton. But that's not what will happen to Mr. 1612. Out here, the usual rules of decay don't apply.

Instead of turning gray, for example, his body might turn as bright orange as a traffic cone. His skin will dry out and harden so much that bugs won't be able to chew through it.

Out here in the desert, Mr. 1612 will likely become a mummy. When he does, it'll look like he's decaying in slow motion.

Increasingly important work

About 700 miles south, in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, the lessons from the Colorado body farm are all too relevant.

"There are literally thousands of migrants dying every year," says Bruce Anderson, a forensic anthropologist with the Office of the Medical Examiner in Pima County, Ariz. "We still have bones and bodies coming in, if not on a daily basis, on a weekly basis."

Over the last 20 years, he says his office has worked on identifying the remains of almost 3,000 people known or thought to have crossed the border without documentation. Some of them were alive 10 minutes before border patrol found them, he says. Others had been dead for decades. Many of these people likely died trying to cross the border into the U.S.

"It doesn't matter to me if they're American or not," says Anderson. "They're dead, and they have people looking for them and people that miss them and people that love them. So, that's why we do what we do."

In recent years, more bodies have been showing up. That's not because more people are crossing the border in that area; the number of people crossing the border from Mexico has actually gone down, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. Instead, Anderson says, it's because of the ramp up in border patrol agents working in the region. More boots on the ground means more eyes looking for migrants, whether alive or dead.

An essential part of Anderson's work for the county medical examiner is figuring out when someone died, because often the only clue that relatives can offer is when their loved one disappeared.

"If a skeleton is found in the Sonoran Desert and we think the person died between one and two years ago — versus five and 20 years ago — that can save a lot of time in going through missing persons reports from those two time periods," says Anderson.

It's particularly important for the cases Anderson works on, because, while there's a single database for missing American citizens, there's a whole patchwork of missing-person lists for foreign nationals — lists maintained by various consulates and independent organizations. Some of the records aren't even digitized.

"You literally have to have a person sit down with paper records or an Excel spreadsheet and look through descriptions of tattoos or crooked teeth or pink tennis shoes or yellow T-shirts," Anderson says.

Narrowing down when a person died can mean the difference between identifying a body and having to bury it anonymously.

Mr. 1401

Back at the Colorado body farm, Connor stands over one body in particular.

"Mr. 1401. He's the individual we deposited here in January 2014," says Connor. There are no maggots or flies on this body. What's left of his tissue is a brittle shell. If a mouse walked over it, the remains would fall apart.

"If you went and looked at a rock and you saw the black lichen on a rock, that's sort of what the body looks like," says Eriek Hansen, a biologist with Colorado Mesa University who also does research at the body farm.

"He has what I think actually is a black mold on some of him," says Connor. And, she says, "There are portions of the tissue that are much more parchment- or vellum-colored."

Existing methods for determining when someone died would not work on this body. Because he turned into a mummy, Mr. 1401 looks as if his body has been out in the desert for a few months, even though it's been more than three years since he died.

Baigent, Connor and Hansen are working on new ways to measure changes in moisture, color, bloating and texture of tissue that, with the help of weather data, would let them accurately calculate how many days a body like this has been outside.

"We want to narrow that estimate down as much as we can, to help law enforcement figure out who those people might be," says Connor, who says local law enforcement call her office between one and four times a year for help identifying a body.

Hansen is using electricity to measure how much moisture a body has lost over time. Baigent and Connor have come up with a detailed scoring system to describe exactly how a body's skin quality changes as time goes on, using words like "parchment," "vellum" and "burnt umber." There's even something they call "pebbled mosaic," which happens when skin sloughs off, leaving tissue islands, which Baigent says is a hint that a body has been outside longer than initial estimates would suggest.

It takes a trained eye — and a strong gut — to notice these subtle changes.

"When you're looking at the whole body, it doesn't look like significant changes are occurring," says Baigent, but they are. You just have to look closely.

If the research team can pin down those details, it could help their colleagues to the south bring closure to the families of those who died. The remains of countless people still lie unidentified.

Nina Totenberg | NPR

By now, we can probably say that Justice Anthony Kennedy is not retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court. The word "probably" is apt because nothing is certain about the plans of this or any other Supreme Court justice when it comes to ending his or her service on the nation's highest court.

But this week, the court wrapped up the current term, and Kennedy, who turns 81 in July, seems to have decided to stay on the job — at least for the coming term.

There could be a variety of reasons. As an institutional matter, he could well have concluded that there had been enough uncertainty and drama on the court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, and the vacancy that lasted for well over a year with Senate Republicans refusing to even consider President Obama's nominee.

Kennedy may also have thought it best to ensure that there is a full complement of nine justices for at least a year. He could even have been put off by President Trump's tweets about the judiciary.

But it is unlikely that Kennedy will remain on the court for the full four years of the Trump presidency. While he long ago hired his law clerks for the coming term, he has not done so for the following term (beginning Oct. 2018), and has let applicants for those positions know he is considering retirement.

Kennedy's position on the court is more than consequential. In the most hotly contested and closely divided cases, his vote often decides the outcome. With every passing day, it has become more clear that President Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, is probably even more conservative than the justice he replaced, Antonin Scalia.

Ideological footprints in the sand

It is unusual to see a new justice's ideological footprints so clearly in his first year or two on the high court. Indeed, most new justices, including those with long careers on the lower courts, are somewhat hesitant at first. They understand that the Supreme Court's word is the final word, and that looking at issues from this new perspective is somewhat different from the perspective of a lower court judge, whose job is to carry out the mandates of a higher court.

But Justice Gorsuch seems both sure-footed and sure of himself and his views. Though he was confirmed in time to hear only the final two weeks of the term's oral arguments, his votes and opinions in those cases — and others that the court has disposed of since he was sworn in — paint a vivid picture of a justice on the far right of the current Supreme Court bench.

Indeed, he voted 100 percent of the time with the court's most conservative member, Clarence Thomas, according to SCOTUSblog.

If Thomas is Gorsuch's new best friend, in terms of votes, his second-best friend statistically is Justice Samuel Alito, with whom he voted next most often.

Those three, and sometimes just two, represented the far right of the bench this term, while Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Kennedy represented the center right. On the ideological left, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor voted together most often — 78 percent of the time — and to a somewhat lesser extent with Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, who might be characterized as on the center left.

A look at the court's last day sitting this week is illustrative.

Gorsuch, Thomas and Alito would have let the modified Trump travel ban go into effect in its entirety, while six justices, including the chief justice and Kennedy, issued a compromise ruling that allowed the executive order to go into effect with certain conditions. Until the court reviews the order more fully in October, the six said that the modified ban cannot be applied to "foreign nationals who have a credible claim of bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."

On gay rights, the three dissented when the court summarily struck down an Arkansas law that barred married same-sex couples from having both their names on a birth certificate. Writing for the conservative trio, Gorsuch said, "It is very hard to see what is wrong with . . . a birth registration regime based on biology."

In contrast, the other six justices, including the chief justice and Kennedy, wrote that the court's 2015 decision declaring a right to marry for same-sex couples guaranteed more than a marriage certificate. It also guaranteed "the constellation of benefits that the States have linked to marriage." And the majority observed that the states, including Arkansas, do not have a paternity requirement for opposite-sex couples to list both names on a birth certificate.

On gun rights, Gorsuch and Thomas voted to hear a challenge to a California law barring people from carrying a gun in public for self-defense. The other seven justices left in place a lower court ruling that upheld the law.

On the subject of campaign finance, Gorsuch and Thomas cast similar dissenting votes when the court refused to hear a challenge to the so-called soft-money ban contained in the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

And finally, Gorsuch and Thomas refused to sign on to the limiting language of the court's 7-to-2 decision on state aid to religious schools. Five justices agreed that it was unconstitutional for the state of Missouri to deny public funds to resurface the playground at a church school. But Gorsuch and Thomas wrote separately to strongly suggest that, in their view, religious schools are entitled to the same kind of taxpayer funding that other schools get.

Next term, thunder and lightning

If, as many observers characterized it, this term was the "calm before the storm," the next term will have plenty of thunderbolts.

Among the issues facing the court will be:

  • A test of state public accommodations laws, and whether business owners can deny commercial services for a gay wedding.
  • A case testing whether police have to get a warrant to track cellphones.
  • And a case that tests whether there is a constitutional limit to the practice of partisan gerrymandering. At issue is whether the party in power can perpetuate and increase its influence by packing its opponents into a small number of legislative districts, or carefully dispersing its opponents into so many different districts that the opposing party has little to no chance of winning in most districts. Partisan gerrymandering has existed since the founding of the republic, but with the advent of high-powered computers, the practice has become so refined — and effective — that increasingly, congressional districts and state legislative districts have been all but walled off from competition.

In this case, as in so many others, Justice Kennedy's vote is likely to be pivotal. In a case testing partisan gerrymandering in 2004, Kennedy said he was amenable to the idea of a limit on partisan gerrymandering, but he couldn't figure out a neutral test to gauge how much is too much. Now, in a case from Wisconsin, some progressive groups contend they have come up with a test that would work. The outcome will assuredly determine how our democracy functions in the years to come.

          2017-18 Course Verification and Elective Course Change Requests   
Dear Wildcat Families,

2017-2018 Course Verification
It is that time of year for students in the Class of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 to review their course requests for the 2017-2018 school year.

Class of 2018 – Class of 2020: This is done through Home Access Center (HAC) by clicking on the schedule link and scroll to the bottom of the page. You will be able to view the courses your student will take next year— it is not your student’s daily schedule. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC.

Class of 2021: The middle schools will distribute a paper copy for your review later this week. The high school schedule link is not available in your HAC at this time. This is not your student’s daily schedule. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC.

Important Information regarding Course review

ERROR - If there is an error in your course request-verification: (e.g. should have Physics, but have Biology) contact your counselor immediately.

ELECTIVE COURSE CHANGE REQUEST - The elective change request window is Monday 5/22 – Friday 5/26. Forms and instructions are located on the following link and then select the course enrollment tab. nvhsguidance.weebly.com Forms are also located in the class houses at NV.

Please be aware that several elements affect course availability. New enrollments, schedule changes because of summer school courses, and course balancing for reasonable class sizes are some of the factors we must take into account. Submitted elective change requests will be processed on a SEAT-AVAILABLE basis. Our goal is to have each of our students in the classes they requested for next year.
Level placements in core classes were completed on January 26th and will not be part of the change request process at Neuqua Valley. We will, however, speak with families that have a level concern if an extenuating circumstance has interrupted their student’s academic journey. Contact the appropriate department chair for review by May 26th.

Thank you for your partnership and your patience with this process. Your student final schedule will be available for viewing in HAC in mid-August.

Oligonucleotide-based systems: DNA, microRNAs, DNA/RNA aptamers.

Essays Biochem. 2016 Jun 30;60(1):27-35

Authors: Jolly P, Estrela P, Ladomery M

Abstract
There are an increasing number of applications that have been developed for oligonucleotide-based biosensing systems in genetics and biomedicine. Oligonucleotide-based biosensors are those where the probe to capture the analyte is a strand of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA) or a synthetic analogue of naturally occurring nucleic acids. This review will shed light on various types of nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA (particularly microRNAs), their role and their application in biosensing. It will also cover DNA/RNA aptamers, which can be used as bioreceptors for a wide range of targets such as proteins, small molecules, bacteria and even cells. It will also highlight how the invention of synthetic oligonucleotides such as peptide nucleic acid (PNA) or locked nucleic acid (LNA) has pushed the limits of molecular biology and biosensor development to new perspectives. These technologies are very promising albeit still in need of development in order to bridge the gap between the laboratory-based status and the reality of biomedical applications.

          The Engineering of Biology and Medicine   
The Engineering of Biology and Medicine Davis, Mark E.; Langer, Robert S In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of PNAS, this Special Feature summarizes the enormous progress that has been made in the engineering of biology and medicine. In 1915, PNAS published articles, such as “A comparison of methods for determining the respiratory exchange of man,” by T. M. Carpenter (1), “The lymphocyte as a factor in natural and induced resistance to transplanted cancer,” by J. B. Murphy and J. J. Morton (2), and “Mechanism of protection against bacterial infection,” by C. G. Bull (3). It is fascinating to look back at these early studies and see how much progress has been made in the engineering of biology and medicine. Biology and medicine have been transformed from descriptive science and art to quantitative, mechanistic understandings of function, primarily because of the elucidation of biology at the molecular level. These advancements have led to the creation of new drugs, vaccines, devices, diagnostics, and imaging agents that significantly contribute to life saving and life extension. In this Special Feature, a variety of topics are presented to highlight the current state of the art and possible future scenarios for the engineering of biology and medicine. We thank PNAS for publishing together these state-of-the art reviews, as we feel that this Special Feature will provide a useful reference for those in field—as well as those out of field—who are seeking to understand where the engineering of biology and medicine is likely to be in the future.

          聪明!墨西哥鸟儿会叼烟头回巢 因尼古丁能驱虫   

据外媒报道,生物学杂志《Journal of Avian Biology》发表的一篇文章说,一些鸟类学会了收集烟头和“装饰”它们的巢穴,以用尼古丁吓唬寄生虫。

资料图:朱雀。

几年来,墨西哥国立大学的学者康斯坦丁·加西亚(Constantino Garcia)和他的同事们对朱雀(雀科家族中体型很小的鸟),以及住在墨西哥城和其他主要城市城郊的一些其他鸟类,进行了观察。 研究人员五年前就发现,小鸟们经常把烟头衔回鸟巢。科学家们追踪朱雀的举动后发现,香烟之所以吸引鸟儿们的注意力,是因为尼古丁能赶走壁虱和其他叮咬的蚊虫。

资料图:鸟儿与烟头。

不是所有的鸟类观察者都同意这种结论。许多生物学家指出,鸟儿可能是因为别的原因收集烟头。这促使墨西哥科学家反复做实验验证。观察表明,壁虱的存在迫使鸟儿们有目的地寻找烟头,将烟头衔回鸟巢。科学家们指出,鸟类能够很好地区分吸过的烟头和整个的香烟,它们更倾向于收集烟头。2012年所做的一个假想最终证明了这一点。

研究人员称,这种保护鸟巢免受寄生虫侵害不是没有后果的。尼古丁不仅能赶走或杀死害虫,还会回损害鸟类本身的DNA。生物学家指出,即使这样,使用烟头利也大于弊。

          Comment on From Design of Everyday Things to Teaching of Everyday People: Human error? Student error? No, Bad Design by alanone1   
<I> ... where the "‡" is some form of combination, not really "addition". It's worth thinking about what "-talent-, as a 'potential' " might mean. It's "something" innate that is a "start" and a "channel". For example, it's almost universally indicated from evidence that almost all human babies have "something" already set up for learning language from their environment. The "something" includes (a) various kinds of sensitivities -- to certain kinds of sounds, to what's going on, etc. -- that draw attention to speech-like things going on, and (b) includes "inner motivation" to imitate and learn. Etc. Because of "Biology is variation". there will be a distribution of how strong the "somethings" are. There can be failures in the learning environment here (such as the tragic children who are locked in closets from birth), but in general, language learning is driven by the learner, and mostly refined by the environment. And, of course, trying (and thinking trying is a good thing) is critical -- so an environment that doesn't encourage this is going to be stunting for many. Another slant on the "Biology is variation" is to think about what this means for just the two dimensions of "talent" and "movitivation" -- let's just think about only (arbitrarily) 5 "bins" for each. For any subject laid before a group, there will be some children who "take to it quickly and 'naturally' " (maybe 5-10%). They don't need a lot of help. Three more subgroups need different kinds of help. And there will usually be a subgroup we don't know how to help. Similarly for motivation. Some children are self-motivated from the get go (and often they are the kids who who "take to it quickly". Other subgroups need different kinds of motivation e.g. some will want to do things mainly because others are doing them. Some will need to see that the thing relates to other things they are interested in. And so forth. The two dimensions are not completely orthogonal, so let's posit 20 different combinations instead of 25. (This is a lot for a teacher to deal with! And the good ones find ways to do it.) Much of -real- Montessori education is about how teachers and the designed environment can -- invisibly to the children -- get them to take charge of their learning -- just as they do for language and other built-ins. There's no question the set up of the environment makes a big difference, so does the belief or not in one's own possibilities. However, there is still "talent", and this really does help especially in the beginnings of learning, and after fluency has developed. To your second question, much of the assessment in sports and music learning (and driving a car, etc.) has partly to do with seeing what the learner can do -while doing- the basic activity -- for example, can they think about what they are doing while doing it, can they talk about it, what else are they aware of, etc.? For reading, while reading out loud something not seen before, if a story, can the reader act out the story (indicating they can read ahead and think about the meanings of the story while also saying the story)? There are similar assessments for prose reading out loud. Does the reader remember? Does the reader read faster than a human can speak? And so forth. For math, what can be done with something, especially in conversation with a fluent practitioner? These are all indications. And most of these also have assessment possibilities that are "off-line" (not in conversation)m having to do with both consuming and creation.

I am an incoming senior which means college apps are approaching and I can't be any more anxious/stressed/pressured enough at the moment! I plan to major in either Biology, Human Biology, Biochemistry, or something along the bio sciences depending on which are impacted. Here is my current list of schools I am planning to apply to this fall: -UC San Diego -UC Irvine -UC Riverside -UC Santa Cruz -Cal State Fullerton -Cal State Long Beach -Pepperdine University -Azusa Pacific University W GPA 4.29, UW GPA 3.79, UC GPA 4.07 ACT 25 New SAT 1140 (retaking) EC's: -National Honor Society -California Scholarship Federation -Peer tutor -Yearbook Staff team leader/ member for 2 years now -Volleyball trainer for the girls varsity team at my middle school -Over 200+ hours (and counting) at a convalescent home/hospital I've been volunteering at since 8th grade -Over 100+ hours (and counting) at my church -French club member -Rosary and Arts club (we make rosaries, crafts, and do service projects for the those in need) -Piano (lessons once a week) -Summer job Also, I am part of the UC ELC Program (top 9 percent in my HS) Based on research, the only reach school with my test scores and GPA on my list is UCSD. However, I do know that what I see online isn't up to date so it can be different. Which schools are my best matches and which ones should I know to be okay with if I don't get accepted to them? Are there other schools I should consider? Or are there any I should take off my list for good? All answers appreciated. Thanks!
          First-Year Premed Course Selection   
Hi guys! I'll be a freshmen at Duke next fall on the premed track and I'm having trouble selecting a fourth course for my first semester schedule. I'm taking a first-year seminar, Chemistry 110DL, and Global Health 101 so far. Although I'm fluent in Mandarin Chinese, I also want to learn Spanish because of its regard and value in the medical field. But sadly, all sections of Spanish 101 are already filled except two spots in a section that meets four times a week early in the morning... So my foreign language requirements will have to wait until later. What other courses are recommended for a freshmen (specifically interested in prehealth)? I was also wondering if it is possible/common for first year students to take Chemistry 110DL and Physics 141L or Biology 202L at the same time? I know most students wait to take Biology 202L during their spring semester or sophomore year, but wouldn't it be even harder because they would be taking orgo then as well? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated and valued. Thanks!
          Does taking a class off senior year significantly impact your ability to get into college?   
For reference, I have 27.5 out of 24 credits to graduate (still have a couple requirements, like a fourth year of English). When I go into my senior year this fall, I'll be taking the following classes: - AP Calculus BC - AP Government and Politics/AP Microeconomics (they're a semester each at our school but we take both exams) - AP English Literature - AP Computer Science Principles - AICE Business (considered AP-level) - Medlab 4 (essentially phlebotomy and lab tests - I'll get my phlebotomy certification) - No Class Seventh I'm taking seventh off because I don't want to overload myself with work. I had the option to take AP Biology, but the teacher at my school isn't the greatest and I would rather take the actual college class rather than a diluted, poorly-taught version. It would really help me to have that time for assignments and to study. And when I'm not, I could spend some time volunteering. My GPA is 3.9, HPA is 4.5, and SAT is just under 1400, but I'm waiting on my June results (which I feel fairly confident about). I'm just worried that colleges will think I'm "taking it easy", but I really don't think I can handle taking AP Bio,and that would be my only option. Thanks for your input!

          EKU Events Recognize American Chestnut   
With this month’s Arbor Day recognition fast approaching, officials at Eastern Kentucky University staged various tree related activities at the historic Elmwood estate Thursday. The emphasis was on the American Chestnut. In the late 1920’s the American Chestnut blight began it’s deadly march across Kentucky. Efforts are underway today to bring the tree back through a variety of means including genetic modification. Retired long time EKU biology professor Bill Martin says in the early part of the 1900’s, the American Chestnut produced nuts for people and wildlife. Plus it had value for trading and was used to make a popular material. “You could get from an American Chestnut the tannic acid that could be used to take regular hides and convert it into leather,” said Martin. The program at Elmwood included the planting of three ceremonial Chestnut seedlings. A much larger tree planting effort is planned Friday at EKU’s Taylor Fork Ecological Area on the southern edge of the Richmond

          Where there's smoke?   


This is a subject I've blogged about before; it involves Cardinal George Pell (see above), a senior figure in the Roman Catholic Church who famously debated Dicky Dawkins a while ago on the Q&A TV program in Australia. Since then Pell also famously declined an invitation to return to his country of birth to be questioned by police regarding historical sexual abuse charges when he was a Bishop there, claiming he was "too ill".

As can be seen from this video Mr Pell is quite a "cocksure" person, some might even say arrogant. Whilst certainly not a crime, Pell shows himself to be woefully ignorant on topics of History, Science and basic Biology, although appears unaware of that ignorance, espousing many common scientific fallacies as facts. A surprising approach to take in such a debate with someone who is clearly more qualified in this field, which is perhaps more telling of his true authoritarian character than any depth of wisdom?

It would seem that now Mr Pell has been personally charged with multiple historical sexual offences and says he will return to Australia to face those charges, which he denies. Innocent or guilty, let's hope that justice is seen to be done in these cases. Far too many people in that organisation have gotten away with abuse for years and years on the basis of authority, cover-ups and special pleading.

          Οι αναμνήσεις μπορούν να διαγραφούν επιλεκτικά!   


Τι Οργουελικό είναι πάλι αυτό. Οι αναμνήσεις μας, καλές ή κακές ( και δόξα τω Θεώ έχουμε και τα δύο ) καθορίζουν σε μέγιστο ποσοστό το ΠΟΙΟΙ ΕΙΜΑΣΤΕ. Εάν αρχίσουμε να διαγράφουμε επιλεκτικά κάποιες, θα πάψουμε να είμαστε αυτό που πράγματι είμαστε και θα νομίζουμε ότι είμαστε αυτό που δεν είμαστε.
    Μια φουτουριστική (μέχρι τώρα) τεχνολογία θα επιτρέπει στα άτομα να διαγράψουν τις αρνητικές ή τραυματικές μνήμες τους. Οι νευροεπιστήμονες του Ιατρικού Κέντρου του Πανεπιστημίου Κολούμπιακαι του Πανεπιστημίου McGill έχουν διαγράψει με επιτυχία κάποιες μνήμες από τους νευρώνες των θαλάσσιων γυμνοσάλιαγκων και η μέθοδος θα μπορούσε να εφαρμοστεί και στον ανθρώπινο εγκέφαλο. Οι ερευνητές απομάκρυναν τις αναμνήσεις μεταβάλλοντας τις πρωτεΐνες στον εγκέφαλο που είναι απαραίτητες για τη διαμόρφωση της μνήμης. Τα μόρια πρωτεϊνοκινάσης Μ (PKM) έχουν αποδειχθεί ότι διευκολύνουν τη δημιουργία και τη διατήρηση μνήμης και μια άλλη πρωτεΐνη, η KIBRA, διαδραματίζει κρίσιμο ρόλο στην προστασία των PKM. Η διαταραχή σε οποιαδήποτε από αυτές τις πρωτεΐνες μπορεί να προκαλέσει μερική ή πλήρη διαγραφή μνήμης, σύμφωνα με τους ερευνητές.
    Ιδιαίτερη σημασία έχει το γεγονός ότι δεν προκαλείται καμία βλάβη στους ίδιους τους νευρώνες όταν διαταράσσονται αυτές οι πρωτεΐνες. Όταν μια μνήμη διαγραφεί, η νευρωνική λειτουργία επιστρέφει απλώς στην κατάσταση στην οποία βρισκόταν πριν δημιουργηθεί η μνήμη. Η κύρια εφαρμογή για την τεχνολογία, αν μπορεί να αποδειχθεί ότι είναι ασφαλής αυτή η ενέργεια για τον άνθρωπο, θα είναι για τη διαγραφή μνήμης που προκαλεί άγχος ή τραύμα. Τα άτομα που έχουν υποστεί για παράδειγμα κακοποίηση θα μπορούσαν να βρουν οφέλη από τη διαγραφή αυτών των αναμνήσεων επιλεκτικά, ειδικά όταν αυτές που δημιουργούν άσχημες συναισθηματικές αντιδράσεις επηρεάζοντας τη ζωή ενός ατόμου με αρνητικό τρόπο.
    Δεν προορίζεται για ανθρώπους πληγωμένους από μια σχέση, που θέλουν να ξεχάσουν κάποιον πρώην διαγράφοντας τις μνήμες τους. Μια σπασμένη καρδιά ή μια προηγούμενη σχέση είναι ένας πολύπλοκος ιστός μνήμης που θα ήταν εξαιρετικά δύσκολο να διαγραφεί επιλεκτικά. Αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι μια παρόμοια εφαρμογή δεν θα μπορούσε να αναπτυχθεί κάποια μέρα. Φυσικά, υπάρχουν ορισμένα ηθικά εμπόδια σχετικά με την εφαρμογή αυτού του είδους της τεχνολογίας και στους ανθρώπους. Η δύναμη να χειριζόμαστε τις αναμνήσεις του παρελθόντος θα μπορούσε να είναι επικίνδυνη εάν ασκείται από λάθος ανθρώπους. Οι αναμνήσεις μάς είναι απαραίτητες για την αντίληψη που έχουμε για τον εαυτό μας.   Αποτελούν σημαντικό μέρος της προσωπικής μας ταυτότητας. Αν τις αλλάξουμε, θα μπορούσαμε να αλλάξουμε τον εαυτό μας και αυτό θα δημιουργούσε πολύ σοβαρά προβλήματα στην υπόστασή μας. Η μελέτη δημοσιεύθηκε στο περιοδικό Current Biology.

Thank God I'm Home.

There was a terrible chapa (mini-bus) accident in Gaza province yesterday that injured three volunteers and killed two others.  One of the volunteers that died was going to fill my position teaching biology in the Chimundo secondary school.

It's so tragic, I can hardly believe it.  It's just sickening that in Mozambique, car accidents kill more people than AIDS and malaria combined.  I am grateful to have made it home safely, and almost feel guilty that this happened to the young woman that was going to replace me, that she was robbed of that experience and the innumerable others that happen throughout a lifetime.  I ask that you keep these volunteers and their families in your thoughts and/or prayers.

Much love, and happy holidays.

          My Extraterrestrial Mozambique   
Suddenly, I have just three months left in Mozambique, and I once again have to borrow from Kurt Vonnegut, once again from Slaughterhouse-Five, to best describe the feeling. This passage comes from the extraterrestrials’ description of their reading experiences, and aside from the context, it relates pretty well to how I feel while looking back at my time here.

… There isn’t any particular relationship between all the messages, except that the author has chosen them carefully, so that, when seen all at once, they produce an image of life that is beautiful and surprising and deep. There is no beginning, no middle, no end, no suspense, no moral, no causes, no effects. What we love in our books are the depths of many marvelous moments seen all at one time.
 
I’ve been feeling nostalgic for the last two weeks, caught in a wash of moments and memories. I am typically awakened from my reverie either by an inquisitive cockroach edging towards my glass or by a small neighbor child hollering for candy or crayons in a shrill voice at our door. So while I am seeing my time in Mozambique slip away, day by day, part of me is also racing towards my imminent return home. I’ve learned and enjoyed many things here, but I’m looking forward to going home and feeling like a whole person again, a fully-functioning member of society, back in the comfort of my familiar cultural context, back in the company of family and friends.

Things are going just fine here. The second trimester is wrapping up—the exams have been given, the averages have been calculated, and we’ll have our conselhos in another two weeks. We’ll have our provincial science fair this weekend and start planning for the national fair, coming up on its heels in August. My Geração Biz students have been presenting at school events and will do their theater pieces and lectures during their biology lessons next week. When we’re not doing something with our projects or schoolwork, we’re typically just trying to keep warm—this winter has been downright chilly! Fifty degrees Fahrenheit feels much colder when it’s damp and windy and there’s no insulation or heating. I’m going to be in for a brutal shock when I face the first Midwestern winter in 3 years. Good thing I’ll be too busy soaking up everything America to notice.

          The Amber of June   
Now that electricity is a fairly constant aspect of my daily life, I occasionally find myself looking at photos on my computer of my past life, and although I am happy, healthy, and doing well here, I sometimes am grasped by the sudden feeling of what-the-hell-am-I-doing-here?  I have now completed 9 months in Mozambique, which is encouraging and feels good, but it is inevitably followed by the requisite recognition and mathematics of the 18 remaining months, which seems daunting and impossibly long.  But when I feel trapped in the amber of this moment and there is no why (Vonnegut—I cannot take credit for that pretty turn-of-phrase), I think about the few things in my life right now with forward momentum.  In case you were wondering where the momentum of life is blowing me at present, here are some of the details.
My sitemate and I are putting together a Science Fair at her school, which is rapidly approaching.  Her school has had volunteers and Science Fairs in the past, so this year, I just invited students from my school to participate in a joint fair at her school.  I’d had my doubts about the project, but seeing my handful of favorite students get excited about their lung models and physics demonstrations is a winning experience.  There won’t be any earth-shaking scientific discoveries coming from my 8th graders this year at the fair, but what’s wrong with reinventing the wheel?  The wheel is still lookin’ good.
In other news, as of last weekend, the Chimundo PCV household has increased by one, consisting now of two American women, two Mozambican kitties, one chicken, and (new addition) one adorable puppy.  Puppy’s name is Shingove, Shangana for “cat.”  We think it’s an ironic little joke, but for people around here, it’s just more evidence that we’re not quite right, that we're weird Americans who talk to animals and what’s more, feed and bathe them.  Shingove is a tubby little squirt, waddling around and trying to initiate play with Bea and suspicious Rocksteady (Erica’s kitty, who is not terribly receptive to these antics as of yet).  We heart Shingove.  The cats are reserving judgment.
Speaking of our domesticated animals, Clucka has finally settled in, roosted, and started producing eggs.  After wandering through the house and trying out the spare bed, our beds, and our clothing-filled shelves, she decided to roost inside of the bag of charcoal on the porch.  Maybe this would be a good time for me to explain that Erica and I do not have a TV; most of our entertainment comes from our pets.  But I have to say, it’s pretty funny to be on the receiving end of a death stare from a maternal chicken guarding eggs in a sack of coal.  (Come to Mozambique if you want to give it a try!)
School is going just fine; at my school, we’re already getting ready for our final exams (“final” meaning 4 weeks before the actual end of the trimester to give teachers time to grade and students a few weeks to slack off).  In July, I should have a week off, which should be a welcome opportunity for a bit of travel and a change of scenery.  In the meantime, I’m keeping myself occupied by going to my homeroom’s soccer games.  While they can be little stinkers who skip out on biology on Tuesdays when it’s their last class of the day, I have to admit, they are soccer superstars.  Maybe because they are, on average, one to two years older and 6 to 8 inches taller than the other players, but they do me proud regardless.
Oh, and no news on the robbery.  I have no hopes or expectations of recovering any of my lost items at this point.  But I do have my new passport, which is complete with a badass-looking stamp saying “THIS PASSPORT IS A REPLACEMENT FOR A STOLEN PASSPORT.”  Don’t you know it.
Erica's family was here for a week in May, which was a lot of fun.  It was nice to see Chibuto through fresh eyes and be reminded that while America may feel like another world away, family and friends are only a few plane rides away, continuing their lives until we next meet again.

          Boa tarde, Senhora Professora!   
As I write this blog post, it’s hard to believe that I’ve been teaching for a month already. Whereas I have given and corrected my first biology test, I’m still working on the names of my students. That could have something to do with the fact that teaching 11 classes of eighth graders with 55 students each, I have about 600 students. But I have learned my favorite students’ names, which is a start. (It doesn’t help that I’m not terribly familiar with Portuguese names like Boaventura, Moisés, and Calado). The students only have biology twice a week, so I end up teaching the same two lessons 11 times each during the week. It’s nice that I don’t have to do much lesson-planning, but I start to feel a little crazy after teaching the osseo-muscular system for the eleventh time. And repeating myself over and over, I’ll be darned if I remember any biology vocabulary in English by the end of these two years.
Yet all in all, things are beginning to gel. I’m getting to know my colleagues a little better and getting to know the ropes. The living situation is challenging at times, being the odd person out in terms of culture and language (the roomies typically speak in Shangana to each other), but improving. I have begun doing my share of the cooking, and although black pepper is too spicy and vegetable skins are widely distrusted, French toast was a hit (syrup, however, is too sweet). You win some, you lose some.
My cat Bea is in good health and keeping me sane; I identify with him a lot, as we both share language and cultural barriers with our housemates. And although he has the habit of lying in the grass and ambushing my ankles while I’m walking back from the latrine or carting water (on my head, I might add), he’s a good cat.
My PCV sitemate is also a great help in maintaining my sanity. We are thinking of going to the beach this weekend for the first time since Christmas, and I think it will be a well-deserved break from school, Portuguese, awkward living situations, and… oh, so many more things that I don’t have the time or space to write about in this blog—things like marriage proposals, the surprising difficulty of procuring bread, days with precious little water—things to ask me about in two years. Or when you come visit me in Mozambique.
Então, ate já—passa bem, nada mão, e beijinhos!

          Anne Geddes se reencuentra con los bebés a los que fotografió hace décadas   

Anne Geddes es famosa por llevar 30 años haciendo fotos icónicas de bebés y de madres embarazadas. Ahora, la fotógrafa está recopilando algunas de sus obras para su nuevo libro e incluso ha recuperado el contacto con muchas personas a las que fotografió hace años, cuando eran bebés.

Geddes está publicando en su cuenta de Instagram una serie de historias titulada Baby, Look at You Now [Bebé, mírate ahora] que consiste en comparar las fotos profesionales que tomó hace años con fotos actuales de los protagonistas.

Según cuenta Geddes a la edición estadounidense del HuffPost, siempre ha bromeado con su familia con que cuando cumpliera 60 años intentaría encontrar a los bebés a los que había fotografiado. Por eso el año pasado la australiana lanzó la serie Baby, Look at You Now y pidió a los protagonistas de los reportajes fotográficos que se pusieran en contacto con ella y le contaran cómo les iba.

"Algunos de ellos compitieron en los Juegos Olímpicos de Río. Otros están en la Universidad estudiando una carrera y hay quienes están por ahí viajando", explica. "También los hay que ya tienen hijos. Me parece algo maravilloso y me encanta saber de ellos".

Geddes acaba de publicar un libro, titulado Small World [Mundos pequeños], que recoge las fotografías que sus fansno habían tenido la oportunidad de ver, además de los clásicos. Según la autora, el libro ronda los tres kilos y es pura coincidencia que su peso sea similar al de un bebé recién nacido.

"El periodo de gestación ha sido muy largo", bromea. Y añade que le llevó prácticamente un año repasar todos los archivos que había acumulado a lo largo de sus 30 años de trayectoria profesional.

Cortesía de TASCHEN

El libro, que Geddes ha publicado con la editorial TASCHEN, está separado en cuatro capítulos que se centran respectivamente en embarazadas, recién nacidos, bebés de seis a siete meses y retratos de los primeros momentos de su carrera.

"Fue muy gratificante echar la vista atrás y volver a ver todos esos retratos del principio y comprobar que aguantan bien el paso del tiempo, que es lo que pretendía cuando hice las fotos hace años", confiesa al HuffPost. "Lo que realmente quería era hacer retratos clásicos que siguieran siendo relevantes cuando pasaran 20, 30 o 40 años".

Cuando reflexionaba sobre qué fotos aparecerían en el libro, Geddes se dio cuenta de que quería incluir la foto de Maneesha, una niña prematura que nació con 28 semanas.

"A lo largo de los años, he hablado con muchos padres de bebés prematuros que me han contado que esa foto les animaba a seguir adelante y les daba esperanzas de que su bebé también sobreviviría", recuerda.

Geddes espera que su libro lleve felicidad a sus lectores, especialmente ahora, que parece que el odio y el terrorismo están tan presentes en la sociedad.

"Creo que hoy en día necesitamos centrarnos más que nunca en las cosas buenas que conlleva una nueva vida y en todo lo que representan los bebés", afirma. "Y, para mí, los bebés representan que siempre tenemos la oportunidad de empezar de cero y todo el que tenga hijos reconocerá esa sensación de que necesita hacer del mundo un lugar mejor".

Este artículo fue publicado originalmente en la edición estadounidense del 'HuffPost' y ha sido traducido del inglés por Lara Eleno Romero.

          105. Jennifer Doudna (Geneticist) - Intelligent Redesign?    
Since 2008, Big Think has been sharing big ideas from creative and curious minds. Since 2015, the Think Again podcast has been taking us out of our comfort zone, surprising our guests and Jason Gots, your host, with unexpected conversation starters from Big Think’s interview archives.

Jennifer Doudna is a Professor of Chemistry and of Molecular and Cell Biology at the UC Berkeley, and until around 2012 she was quietly and contentedly studying the three dimensional structure of RNA molecules. Then she and her colleagues started looking into a thing called CRISPR-Cas9. It’s a kind of bacterial immune system, and it led to an invention that will change everything for all of humanity, forever.

In this episode Jennifer and Jason discuss the implications of the gene editing tool her lab created, and how humanity should (and likely will) yield the power to rewrite our own evolutionary destiny.

Surprise conversation starter interview clips in this episode:

Richard A Clarke on averting global catastrophes, Deepak Chopra on secular spirituality (clip not available online)








          The Biology Of Altruism: Good Deeds May Be Rooted In The Brain   
Four years ago, Angela Stimpson agreed to donate a kidney to a complete stranger. "The only thing I knew about my recipient was that she was a female and she lived in Bakersfield, Calif.," Stimpson says. It was a true act of altruism — Stimpson risked pain and suffering to help another. So why did she do it? It involved major surgery, her donation was anonymous, and she wasn't paid. "At that time in my life, I was 42 years old. I was single, I had no children," Stimpson says. "I loved my life, but I would often question what my purpose is." When she read about the desperate need for kidneys, Stimpson, a graphic artist who lives in Albany, N.Y., says she found her purpose. She now blogs about her experience and encourages others to become donors. People like Stimpson are "extraordinary altruists," according to Abigail Marsh . She's an associate professor of psychology at Georgetown University and one of the country's leading researchers into altruism. Marsh herself was the beneficiary
          Why Can Some People Recall Every Day Of Their Lives? Brain Scans Offer Clues   
Six years ago, we told you about a woman, identified as A.J., who could remember the details of nearly every day of her life. At the time, researchers thought she was unique. But since then, a handful of such individuals have been identified. And now, researchers are trying to understand how their extraordinary memories work. Bob Petrella, 62, of Los Angeles had to go through a lot of memory testing to qualify as someone with superior autobiographical memory. First, there were lots of questions about news events from the past several decades, like the O.J. Simpson car chase. Petrella scored 55 percent correct on the news events, according to a paper published in July in the journal Neurobiology of Learning and Memory . (Most people get 15 percent.) Then he was quizzed about his own life. "They asked, 'What day of the week was Jan. 1, 1984?' — which was a Sunday," Petrella recalls. "And the Steelers, my favorite team, lost to the Raiders that day, 38-10." Petrella is one of 11

          Comment on Classical Conversations by Britt   
Addressing the points - Directors are untrained and incompetent- the idea behind CC is to equip parents to present the same material at home in the same way. It would FAIL if it intimidated parents and they walked away thinking they were not as capable as the tutor. The PARENT is the teacher. The tutor is just a parent that presents the same material that is in the guidebook. The tutor is NOT THE TEACHER. This is not a co-op. You must be familiar with the classical model of education or you won't understand how it's set up. The elementary grades are the Grammar Stage and this is the time when kids want to absorb information like little sponges. Memorizing facts is just one small part of it. Those facts are like pegs that they can hang information on as they get older and start to see the whole picture. My 4 yo can fill in the rest of the sentance when someone mentions Constantine in a public setting. She has a peg now and can build on that later. High school is not the time to fill heads with knowledge. This is very different from public school. Please don't approach CC with our public school format as your benchmark. The flower of CC is the Challenge years. That's for the 12-18 year olds. The Grammar stage is the stem that supports that. If you haven't checked out a campus yet, please stop in and observe the older teens. They impress. They have poise and confidence. If you have little one's that are under 4 and too young, it's is up to the parents to set up a nursery or babysitter during that time. We do it in the church. The moms take a rotation so each one only watches kids twice a year. A teen is hired for a nominal fee to help in the room. It's not the directors job to do this. Cost- We looked into an online highschool class. The cost of one year of biology was $900. The same curriculum was covered in CC, but several other subjects were presented as well for just a little more. It's really quite the deal when you look at it from a financial aspect.
