These include the setting up of a Youth Friendly Service (YFS) working group and establishment of standards and criteria for the group; completion of research and extensive literature review and data analysis of adolescent violence, suicide and reproductive health; and strengthening of information systems in hospitals and clinics.In addition, more than 400 students have in some way benefited from specialized camps, while student leaders participated in a regional workshop and youth friendly materials were produced. An Adolescent Health Policy working group has been formed and guidelines relating to age of consent submitted. Also, 64 principals, vice principals and guidance counsellors received training at a two-day workshop.Targets for this fiscal period include the strengthening of information systems and the development of an Adolescent Behaviour Surveillance System; maintaining and monitoring activities implemented in Clarendon, St. Elizabeth, Kingston and St. Andrew sites; providing art supplies and sport equipment to support school-based activities and developing interventions to improve mentorship supervised after school activities, which were developed in collaboration with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), church schools and other organizations.The programme will also seek to offer refresher training for facilitators and local level personnel from the Ministry of Health and YFS; adolescent reproductive health training for nurses and midwives, community leaders and influential persons; and further focus training of principals, teachers, guidance counsellors, coaches, and parents.Behaviour change interventions for pre-teens, inner-city adolescents and boys will also be a part of the plans for the year.

Owlwood Estate, owned by famous and notorious, sells for $88M

by admin
first_imgRobert Shapiro, Tony Curtis and Sonny & Cher with Owlwood Estate (Getty, The Viewpoint Collection)A Holmby Hills estate that asked $180 million when Ponzi schemer Robert Shapiro owned it has sold for about half that amount.Owlwood Estate, a 10-acre property that includes a 12,000-square-foot mansion, sold for $88 million to Calch Urban Investments, a Chicago-based LLC, Variety reported. The publication did not identify the true buyer, except to say it was a billionaire.The off-market deal for the three-parcel property at 141 South Carolwood Drive closed just before the new year, according to the report. Compass’ Tomer Fridman, Sally Forster Jones and Tyrone McKillen along with Hilton & Hyland’s Drew Fenton had been marketing the palatial property on behalf of the Viewpoint Collection . Viewpoint, headed by Frederick Chin, took control of Shapiro’s portfolio on behalf of his defrauded investors.The sale ranks as the third priciest residential deal in Los Angeles in 2020.ADVERTISEMENTBuilt in 1936, Owlwood includes an Italianate main house with nine bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, along with a guesthouse. The entire property — off of Sunset Boulevard — is landscaped and features a pool and tennis court. Among its past notable residents were singers Sonny and Cher and actor Tony Curtis. A young Marilyn Monroe was reported to have stayed in the guesthouse for a time, according to Variety.A more recent — and infamous — owner was Shapiro. The former head of Woodbridge Group of Companies, Shapiro bought the estate for $90 million in 2016. By September 2018, Woodbridge was bankrupt and an embattled Shapiro slashed the price on Owlwood to $115 million.In October 2019, Shapiro was sentenced to 25 years in prison for a massive Ponzi scheme in which federal authorities said he misappropriated $36 million in investor money, lavishing family and friends with luxury travel, cars and homes. The scheme eventually collapsed when his web of companies couldn’t repay interest payments to investors.By the time he was sentenced, Shapiro had already agreed to pay the Security and Exchange Commission $120 million as part of a civil settlement, and his many Los Angeles residential properties have been sold off in the past couple of years to help pay back investors.

Do cheaters have an evolutionary advantage?

by admin
first_imgLinkedIn Pinterest Some amoebae ultimately become cells in the stalk of the fruiting body and die, while others rise to the top, and form spores that pass their genes to the next generation. When unrelated amoebae gather to form a fruiting body, some strains may overcontribute to the spores and undercontribute to the stalk. These are the cheaters.Scientists knew that cheaters could be found in wild populations of Dicty, but whether this was a successful strategy in the game of natural selection was anyone’s guess.Now the ease and low cost of genome sequencing has finally made it possible to answer the question. “By looking at the genetic variation in or near Dicty’s ‘social genes,’ scientists are able to tell whether variants of these genes that made cooperators into cheaters had swept through populations, fought to maintain a toehold, or been given a pass because they didn’t affect survival,” said Elizabeth Ostrowski, PhD, assistant professor of biology and biochemistry at the University of Houston.“The genome signatures we found suggest neither the cheating nor the cooperating variants of the social genes was able to take over the populations and that the variants had battled to a standstill,” said David C. Queller, PhD, the Spencer T. Olin Professor of Biology in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.“A stalemate is maintained only in a complex environment where it’s unclear which strategy will win,” said Joan Strassmann, PhD, the Charles Rebstock Professor of Biology in Arts & Sciences. “If the rules never change, the gene that is best on average will eventually drive out the other variant.”The findings suggest the benefits of cheating change with its frequency, or prevalence, in a population. Cheaters may succeed, for example, only when they are rare, and fail when they become so numerous they push out cooperators or put pressure on cooperators to find ways to defeat cheating.Many social behaviors are like this, Queller said; the success of one individual’s strategy depends on how many others are also employing it.The study, described in the June 4 issue of Current Biology, is the work of a collaboration of scientists from Washington University, the University of Houston and the Baylor College of Medicine. Ostrowski is the first author on the paper and Queller and Strassman are senior authors.An arms race or trench warfare?“For this project, we sequenced 20 Dicty strains we had isolated from the soil in the eastern U.S. We then looked for variation in 140 genes implicated in social behavior, comparing them to the rest of the genome to see if the social genes were evolving differently,” Strassmann said.“We originally got enough funding to sequence two genomes,” she said. “But by the time we had cleaned the clones up, the price of sequencing had dropped so much we were able to sequence many more.”The 140 genes, Queller said, were ones that had been located during an earlier genome-wide screen for genes, that when they are disabled, turn a cooperating amoeba into a cheater.The scientists framed their study by defining several hypothetical scenarios for the evolutionary dynamics of cheating behaviors in Dicty (see illustration), each of which makes different, testable predictions about DNA diversity in and near the social genes.“We thought we were going to see the signature of an arms race in the DNA,” Queller said, “because the cheater/cooperator conflict seems analogous with other kinds of conflict, such as host/pathogen conflict, that produce escalating battles between adaptations.”An arms race, technically a series of “selective sweeps,” would have shown up as a lack of variation in the DNA in or near the social genes, because a highly advantageous gene “sweeps” through a population. “What we found was kind of the opposite,” Queller said. “Instead of diminished variation, there was more variation in the social genes than average, which is consistent with a prolonged stalemate at these locations.”The scientists found more evidence for a stalemate when they compared strains from two different populations, one in Texas and the other in Virginia, Queller said.In an arms race, the Dicty at these geographically separated locations would probably have undergone different selective sweeps, which in turn would make the two populations less similar. In fact, however, the populations differed less at the social gene locations than at other genes, suggesting that some selective force was working to maintain the same variants of the social genes in both the Texas and Virginia populations.Both the increased genetic diversity near the social genes and the failure of separated populations to drift apart at those genetic locations support the stalemate scenario.“We failed to observe the genetic signatures of a simple arms race: a reduction in genetic diversity and long-term divergence of populations,”Ostrowski said. “Rather, the genetic signatures suggests there is trench warfare among variants of the social genes, and neither the cheaters or the cooperators are able to gain the upper hand.”But why is that? Ostrowski said. “What limits the spread of cheaters? Are they suppressed by better cheaters or by a resistant population? And conversely what limits cooperators? Why don’t the cooperators completely shut down the cheaters?”It’s hard to imagine questions of more universal interest. Share on Facebook Sharecenter_img Email Share on Twitter Anyone who has crawled along in the left lane while other drivers raced up the right lane, which was clearly marked “lane ends, merge left,” has experienced social cheating, a maddening and fascinating behavior common to many species.Although it won’t help with road rage, scientists are beginning to understand cheating in simpler “model systems,” such as the social amoeba, Dictyostelium discoideum.At one stage in their life cycle thousands of the normally solitary Dicty converge to form a multicellular slug and then a fruiting body, consisting of a stalk holding aloft a ball of spores. It is during this cooperative act that the opportunity for cheating arises.last_img

HHS seeks comments on risks of H5N1 research

by admin
first_imgOct 18, 2012 (CIDRAP News) – Federal health officials are inviting the public to weigh in on whether research on H5N1 avian influenza viruses, including strains modified in the lab to make them more transmissible, is risky enough to require new safety regulations and precautions.The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wants to know if people think H5N1 should be designated an HHS special agent, which means that medical labs handling it would have to register with the agency and meet special requirements for physical security and personnel screening and training.The department also has asked for comments on whether special safety and containment measures are needed for research involving H5N1 strains with increased transmissibility in mammals. The request follows the publication earlier this year of two controversial studies describing genetically modified H5 strains that were capable of aerosol transmission in ferrets.HHS published its request for comments yesterday in a 16-page Federal Register notice. The public has 60 days to comment.Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 viruses are already listed as select agents in the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) province of the Select Agent Program, which means that labs that handle them must register with the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and meet related security and screening requirements. But the viruses are not on HHS's select agent list.Oversight by APHIS "focuses on the threat to animal health and safety," the HHS notice says. "Listing influenza viruses that contain an HA [hemagglutinin] from the goose/Guangdong/1/96 lineage [the first highly pathogenic H5N1 isolate identified] as an HHS select agent will ensure that the focus of regulation will also be on the potential impact of these viruses on human health as well as agriculture."The notice notes that certain other agents, such as Bacillus anthracis, which causes anthrax, are on both the USDA and HHS select agent lists. Adding H5N1 to the HHS list "may help to ensure that HPAI strains that have the greatest potential for major direct effects on human health will be regulated with a focus on protection of human health," it states.The request for comments follows a determination by a federal interagency committee that H5N1 viruses may pose a severe threat to human health and safety, according to the notice. The finding came from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Intragovernmental Select Agents and Toxins Technical Advisory Committee (ISATTAC), which includes members from various HHS and USDA agencies and the departments of Homeland Security and Defense.That committee considered "the data showing transmissibility of genetically modified H5N1 viruses among ferrets," along with the virus's virulence and the low level of immunity in the population.The panel also recognized that H5N1 research could lead to better preparedness for pandemic flu and therefore said the risks inherent in research must be weighed against any negative effects that new restrictions might have on legitimate research, according to the notice.HHS is asking for opinions not only on H5N1 as a possible select agent, but also on whether it should be a "Tier 1" select agent, a new category for agents thought to pose the greatest risk of misuse leading to major harm. Tier 1 agents require additional precautions, such as greater physical security and "personal reliability" screening for staff who work with them.Both the USDA and HHS recently revised their lists of select agents. The USDA kept H5N1 on its list but did not designate the virus as a Tier 1 agent. HHS put several agents in the Tier 1 category, including Ebola and Marburg viruses and the agents that cause smallpox, plague, anthrax, and botulism, among others."The final determination of whether or not to designate this particular lineage of H5N1 HPAI as Tier 1 would be a collaborative process between HHS and USDA," the Federal Register notice says. "HHS and USDA would continue to work closely together whether or not both HHS and USDA designate these viruses as Tier 1 Select Agents."Further questions in the HHS notice include:Should special safety and biocontainment measures be considered when working with diagnostic specimens suspected of containing HPAI H5N1?Should even more stringent precautions be used when working with HPAI H5 strains that have increased transmissibility in mammals?In response to queries from CIDRAP News, comments from groups and researchers likely to be affected by an HHS move to make H5N1 a select agent suggest there's a lot of uncertainty about the implications of the HHS notice.Chris N. Mangal, MPH, director of public health preparedness and response at the Association of Public Health Laboratories, said, "APHL has concerns about HPAI H5 viruses being included on the new tier 1 list of select agents. These viruses are already regulated by the US Department of Agriculture. In the coming weeks, APHL will be gathering more information from member public health laboratories to better address the questions posed in the Oct 17 Federal Register notice."Richard J. Webby, PhD, whose lab at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis studies H5N1 viruses and is registered with the USDA Select Agent Program, commented, "To be honest it's not entirely clear what the impact of such a decision would be on operations here but it's something that we are of course investigating fully now." Webby directs the World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Studies on the Ecology of Influenza in Animals and Birds, which is at St. Jude.John J. Treanor, MD, a veteran flu and flu vaccine researcher at the University of Rochester, commented, "I don't work directly with H5 viruses in the lab, but I am sure that this [issue] will be quite controversial. It is probably a consequence of the earlier issues related to the ferret studies. It's a tough call—increasing restrictions will without any doubt make it more difficult to study H5 viruses and if the new regulations required specialized facilities that are not readily available, could substantially reduce research in this area."On the other hand, H5 viruses are potentially very dangerous. I would see a question—do H5 viruses pose greater danger in the form of natural emergence of H5 as an epidemic in humans, in which case increasing containment requirements is counterproductive, or do H5 viruses pose a danger to humans primarily because of possible accidental release, in which case increased containment is very important."See also: Oct 17 HHS Federal Register noticeOct 10 CIDRAP News story "Changes in select agent rules concern public health labs"Jun 21 CIDRAP News story "Fouchier study reveals changes enabling airborne spread of H5N1 virus"last_img

ROGER Milla remains proud of Cameron’s Italia ’90 exploits and legacy – but the regrets of not beating England still linger.Today marks exactly 30 years since Bobby Robson’s Three Lions came from behind to beat the Indomitable Lions 3-2 in Naples in the World Cup quarter-finals.Roger Milla scored four goals during a sensational display at the 1990 World Cup finalsCredit: PA:Empics SportGary Lineker’s two penalties ended Cameroon’s magnificent run – the first African nation to reach the last eight of a World Cup – but the memories of a dancing 38-year-old striker left an ever-lasting imprint.Now 68, Milla spoke on email this week with SunSport in an exclusive interview about that heady summer and coming within seven minutes of knocking out England.Milla said: “We knew that England had a great team with great players like Lineker but we didn’t fear any Englishmen.“We were just trying to put our game in place. I think the penalties awarded were generous but that’s a thing of the past. We can’t rewrite history unfortunately.“After the match, we had no regrets because we were the first African country to reach this stage of the competition. But today I have because I think there was room to do better.”Thanks to that extra-time spot-kick winner, England moved on to the semi-finals – and we all know what happened next against West Germany.Who knows how Cameroon would have fared against Franz Beckenbauer’s side at Turin’s Stadio delle Alpi.Milla’s corner-flag dance celebration endeared him to the watching fansCredit: Bongarts – GettyMilla said: “It would have been crazy. An indescribable joy if we had won the quarter-final.“I don’t even dare to imagine what it would have been like if we had gone further in the competition.“I’ve the feeling we could have got to the final if we had beaten England. And in the final anything can happen.“Yes, (what we did) makes me very proud. It shows that we have done something great.“We’ve made an impression. Our performance allowed Africans to be taken seriously.“Besides, I’m not the one saying it, but the many journalists, internet users and football connoisseurs around the world.”Milla, whose pro career started in 1970, had played for celebrated clubs like Monaco, St Etienne and Montpellier but he had retired before that World Cup.Yet he was encouraged in a phone call with Cameroonian president Paul Biya to play in the squad bound for Italy.Milla was not physically ready for the tournament and came off the subs bench in all of the five matches.He made a nine-minute cameo in the stunning 1-0 victory over world champions and Diego Maradona’s Argentina at Milan’s San Siro. Four goals and flamboyantly dancing round the corner flag justified the decision to come out of retirement.Nobody older than Milla has scored at a World Cup finals match, a record he extended to 42 years of age four years later on US soilAsked how his memorable corner-flag celebration came about, Milla said: “Curiously, it was completely improvised.“I don’t know what made me celebrate this way. It was kind of a way to thank all the supporters and those who’d supported me.”England beat Cameron 3-2 in a tight, nervy World Cup quarter-final exactly 30 years ago todayCredit: PA:Empics SportTwo of his goals came in the Last 16 2-1 win over Colombia, which is notable for when he robbed maverick goalkeeper Rene Higuita and slotted the winner into an empty net.He said: “I didn’t expect him to make that kind of mistake.“I had watched his matches with (Carlos) Valderrama when I was in Montpellier because French television broadcast the matches.“My coaches Peter Schnittger and Claude Leroy always told me that I had to stay very close to the centre line and the goalkeeper.“I tried to follow their instructions and the success was total against Higuita.“Higuita is a very good friend of mine. We don’t talk to each other every day but we appreciate and respect each other. He recently welcomed me to Twitter.“It’d be difficult to choose just one (memory) from that World Cup.“I was so happy to be there. At the start, I didn’t even expect to play but as soon as the coach saw me in training, he told me that technically I was ready.“But he said he couldn’t put me through the whole match because I wasn’t physically ready.“I savoured all the moments spent during this competition.”After eventually hanging up his boots in 1996, Milla worked as a coach and Director of football in France and Cameroon.He added: “I live a quiet retirement while continuing to work.“I’m a travelling ambassador to the Presidency of the Republic and I take care of my Heart of Africa Foundation.“I want to be remembered as a special player. My legacy is already there through all the awards I’ve had in my career.”Roger Milla, now 68, lives in retirement in CameroonCredit: Romaric Etong Football player touch female referee s breast! 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!last_img
