Canadian rock legends Rush inspire names for new termitedwelling microbes

first_imgVANCOUVER – What do a trio of Canadian rock icons have in common with microbes living in the guts of termites?Researchers at the University of British Columbia say the tiny organisms have long, hair-like flagella and bob about like the members of the prog-rock band Rush.Now, three new species of microbe have been named after the band’s members; singer Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart.The findings, and the new names, have been published in the online journal Scientific Reports.Microbiologist Patrick Keeling is the senior author of the paper and he says a number of Rush lyrics have also been hidden in the writing, “just for fun.”Keeling says the scientists hope naming the organisms after a beloved band gets more people interested in science.“Science is supported by society, so we like to tell them what we’re doing and get them excited about science,” he says. “And so far the response to this has been overwhelmingly positive.”Among those taking notice of the scientific novelty are the band members, who posted a message on Twitter saying they love their namesakes.“Having a microbe named after each us is a hugely tiny honour!” the Tweet says.Rush has been around since the late 1960s and has produced hits like “Tom Sawyer” and “Closer to the Heart.”The idea for naming the new species came from Javier del Campo, a Spanish post-doctoral student working in Keeling’s lab who had recently asked for some recommendations on Canadian music.Keeling, a lifelong fan, suggested Rush. He says del Campo loved the music and made a connection between photos of the band and what he was seeing under a microscope.“Basically, (the microbes) bob their heads around and thrash their hair around and it just kind of reminded us of publicity photos of bands you see from the 1970s,” Keeling says.The scientific names for the Pseudotrichonympha species are P. leei, P. lifesoni, and P. pearti. Keeling says his lab studies them as a hobby because they’re “amazing to look at.”“They’re large, super complex cells that squiggle and wriggle around a lot, and they’re just a lot of fun. Pretty, just beautiful forms,” he says.Found in the hindgut of termites, the organisms digest wood into sugars, Keeling explains.The researchers have also made a video showcasing the microbes, where viewers can watch the organism wriggle as Rush’s music plays in the background.___On the web: read more

Watch your credit card rewards pile up with these 5 tips

Just because summer’s approaching doesn’t mean your wallet gets a vacation. From graduation season and Father’s Day to the Fourth of July and back-to-school spending, you’ll likely drop some dollars.Rewards-earning credit cards can help you save on these expenses — but you can also combine those rewards with other money-saving strategies to help you hang on to even more of your cash.Here are five such “stacking” strategies for your credit card.1. CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT FOR OFFERSSome card issuers have online bonus malls — accessible via account login — that offer discounts or higher rewards rates at hundreds of merchants, on top of what your card already earns.“I recently bought new outdoor furniture and a gas firepit, and I logged into Chase, clicked through the portal to Lowe’s, and got an extra 3 points per dollar spent,” says Holly Johnson, founder of Club Thrifty , a personal finance blog dedicated to saving money.You can also check for one-time or limited-time promotions that are specific to your card. Chase Offers and AmEx Offers, for example, are visible to eligible cardholders when logged in. They feature discounts or bonus rewards at dozens of retailers, including many brick-and-mortar merchants, although you must opt in by “adding” the offer to your card.2. SIGN UP FOR A RETAILER’S EMAIL LISTEver had a salesperson offer you a discount on the spot if you sign up for the store’s credit card? Similarly, when you’re shopping online, many stores will offer you a percentage off your first order if you sign up for an email list, so snag that discount on top of your normal credit card rewards.Or maybe it’s free shipping you want. Seventy-five per cent of consumers now expect it even on orders below $50, according to a report by the National Retail Federation . Signing up to receive a retailer’s emails can be one way to get free shipping, at least on your first purchase. (Note that retailers charge different prices for shipping and may not add that cost to your total until it’s in your cart.)Another way to dodge shipping charges: Buy online, preferably through an online bonus mall, and pick up in store. This may also require you to submit your email address and be added to a mailing list. But agreeing to receive correspondence from a retailer is much easier than signing up for a store card. If those emails start getting overwhelming, just unsubscribe.3. USE CASH-BACK SITES WITH A CASH-BACK CARDCash-back sites like Ebates, TopCashBack or BeFrugal function much like online bonus malls, but they’re not tied to any particular card issuer.When you join one of these portals and log in, you’ll see hundreds of participating retailers, as well as the percentage back that those retailers offer for shopping through that portal. Click on the offer you want, and you’ll be directed to that merchant’s website to shop.You’ll get a percentage back on your purchase by using your rewards card and an additional percentage back from shopping through the portal.4. BUY DISCOUNTED GIFT CARDS TO THE PLACES YOU SHOPGift cards remain popular: 45% of respondents in NRF’s 2019 Mother’s Day Spending Survey said they were planning to purchase them.There are two approaches to saving money via gift cards. First, you can buy them at a place where you already earn elevated rewards for shopping. For example, if you have a card that pays high rewards on supermarket purchases, pick up a gift card for your favourite retailer while you’re getting those groceries. You’ll earn the same high rewards as you would on your milk, eggs and bread.Your other option is to use a rewards credit card to buy gift cards through an exchange site like GiftCardGranny or Raise, where people sell their unwanted gift cards at a lower-than-face-value price. You’ll save on the card itself, plus you’ll get a percentage back on the purchase via your rewards card.5. TRACK PRICES ACROSS DIFFERENT SELLERSBefore you shop with a specific retailer through a bonus mall or cash-back site, it pays to compare. Consider using tracking tools like CamelCamelCamel, which focuses on Amazon prices, or sites like PriceGrabber and Google Shopping to see which retailer is offering what you’re looking for at the lowest price.With that quick bit of research, you can get your item at the lowest price, rack up portal rewards and pile on credit card points for that category or retailer.This article was provided to The Associated Press by the personal finance website NerdWallet.

A day in the life of Ohio State guard William Buford

You might know that William Buford is the starting guard for the No. 1-ranked Ohio State basketball team, but you might not know that he is a quiet student, a below average ping-pong player, loves the kids’ meal at Raising Canes and his car could use a trip to the shop. Buford arrived at Central Classroom Building at 10:32 a.m. Monday. He walked briskly up the stairs on the right to get to his 10:30 a.m. class, Swahili 102. Even though he arrived a few minutes after the bell, students were still settling in and Buford found his seat in the middle of the room without causing a disruption. He is not the only recognizable athlete in the class, as football players Jaamal Berry, Mike Adams and Michael Brewster were also in attendance. Buford talked with Berry while the professor distributed a graded quiz. “Most of the athletes, we stay together and try to be close,” Buford said. As the last quiz was handed out and class lecture began, the talking stopped. Buford took notes and did not talk again until the opportunity to work in groups arose. “I’m pretty shy in class. I really don’t say too much,” Buford said. “I try to stay out of the way and get my work done.” As class came to a close, Buford checked with a classmate to make sure he was clear on the assignment for the next class. “Seventy-two sentences?” he said, shocked at the amount of work. With only one class on Mondays and Wednesdays, Buford had finished his academic load for the day. His obligations, however, were far from over. He made the short walk from Central Classrooms to the Tuttle Parking Garage and climbed into his silver 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, which has been on campus since his sophomore year. The “check engine” light was on as he left the parking garage. Buford drove to Parks Hall and picked up his teammate, senior guard David Lighty. Buford moved to the passenger seat, which was already as far back as the car would allow, and let Lighty drive while he made a call about getting the car serviced. The two starters pulled into the Schottenstein Center parking lot and made their way to the player’s entrance. Buford slowed down and waited for Rob, his barber, who cuts his and Lighty’s hair in the locker room. Rob has been coming to the arena to cut Buford’s hair since the player’s freshman year. With a prime-time game against Purdue to be aired on ESPN the following evening, the timing couldn’t have been better. “I just really needed a haircut since last week, but it worked out that way,” Buford said, smiling. A chair was set up in the bathroom portion of the locker room and Rob opened his bag and went to work. Buford played music on his phone, the EVO, while barber and client rapped along. Buford wandered to the upper bowl of the arena after the 35-minute haircut, in search of an ATM so he could pay Rob. After compensating the barber, he dropped some things off in his locker, which stands between Lighty’s and freshman guard Lenzelle Smith Jr.’s. Buford then retreated to the team’s ping-pong table to pass the time. “Everybody plays,” he said. “We compete a lot at ping-pong.” After 30 more minutes, Lighty’s hair was cut and the two tried to decide where to get food. They agreed on Raising Cane’s and Buford left to pick up the order while Lighty studied. Buford walked into the location on Ackerman Road and ordered a kids’ meal for himself and one for Lighty. “We always get the kids’ meal,” Buford said. “We got practice so we aren’t trying to get too full.” Numerous patrons and employees stared at the basketball player as he placed his order and waited for it to be filled. “I don’t pay attention,” he said of the added attention. “I try not to make eye contact with people.” After returning to the locker room, Buford ate his lunch while watching SportsCenter. At 1:40 p.m., he left the locker room and headed to the training room for treatment on an ankle injury he suffered against Illinois on Jan. 22. With Tuesday’s game looming, Buford needed the ankle treatment in order to play. Under the guidance of team athletic trainer Vince O’Brien, Buford iced his ankle for three different increments of five minutes with stretching exercises in between. After an hour in the training room, Buford returned to the locker room for more ping-pong before the team film session. Strength and conditioning coach Dave Richardson challenged Buford to a game. “I’m about to Forrest Gump his ass,” Buford said. Richardson swapped out the traditional paddle for a small block of wood with an Ohio State emblem on it. “If I beat you with this, you’re not allowed to play anymore,” Richardson said, laughing. Richardson won, 21-8, and Buford retired to the couch to watch his teammates play. “Coach Rich got a ping-pong table at his house so he’s pretty good,” Buford said. “I suck. I just play it to have fun.” During the following game, Smith, a spectator at the time, was called for “hands.” Every player in the room slapped Smith hard on the back of the hand. Buford slapped twice after Smith flinched the first time. You get called for hands “if you say something dumb,” Boston College transfer Evan Ravenel said. “Something real dumb.” At 3 p.m., the games stopped as the team convened to watch film on the Purdue offense. Buford’s eyes were fixed on the screen for the entire 25 minutes while he rotated his ankle, trying to keep it loose. No one spoke as coach Thad Matta and his assistants broke down the footage. As the team left for the court, Buford returned to the training room to have his ankle taped a final time before entering the gym. Buford did not participate in the practice because of his injury and instead did individual shooting and dribbling drills. “It was kind of frustrating because I’m not used to it,” he said. “What is that, my second time (missing practice) in three years? It didn’t feel normal.” Buford stuck his head into the first-team huddles during full-court drills. “I was just seeing what they were running,” he said. “I didn’t want to be left out.” After practice concluded, the team stayed on the floor, shooting around and playing games. Buford placed second to assistant coach Brandon Miller in one game involving 3-point shooting. “I had to let him win,” Buford said, laughing. Buford, freshman guard Jordan Sibert and senior guard Eddie Days left the court at 5:20 p.m., the last three players to leave. Buford returned to the training room for treatment. After five minutes with his ankle in the hot tub to loosen the muscles, athletic trainer Chalisa Fonza began to administer a Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM) massage, a technique involving small instruments that Fonza has been working with for three years. “I’m going real easy because he has to play tomorrow,” Fonza said. The grimace on Buford’s face would suggest the opposite. Buford jokingly bit a towel and asked freshman guard Aaron Craft to talk to him while he got the massage. “You feel that crunchy-crunch?” Fonza said while rubbing a small purple instrument on the ligaments on the front of his ankle. “That’s the problem.” For Buford, the entire technique was a problem. “That was my first time ever getting it. I don’t want to get that thing no more; that thing hurts,” he said. “She said she has to give it to me again on Wednesday, so it is what it is.” After the massage and a round in the ice tub, Buford changed into his street cloths, got taped up again and left the arena. At 6:35 p.m. Buford stepped into his car, ready to head home to the apartment he lives in alone at Olentangy Commons. He planned on studying, icing his ankle and resting in preparation for the next night’s game. Buford started in Tuesday’s game against Purdue. The junior logged 23 minutes and a team-high 19 points in the team’s 87-64 victory. read more

New Ohio State coach Urban Meyer off and running on recruiting trail

Recruits have taken varying stances on Meyer’s hire. Washington, who is out of Cincinnati Taft High School, committed to Ohio State Nov. 22 and told The Cincinnati Enquirer that he hoped Meyer would be his head coach. Meanwhile, Canton GlenOak’s Dunn told The Repository Monday that he didn’t want to play in a spread offense, which Meyer will be implementing. Dunn has been wavering back and forth between OSU and Michigan, but tweeted Monday that he spoke with Meyer after the press conference. Finding the athletes to transition from the “Tressel-ball” pro-style and I-formation offenses to a spread won’t be much of a problem recruiting-wise, Helwagen said. “I don’t know that it will be as big a transition as some people think it might be,” he said. “I think he’ll play to his team’s strengths on the field next year and take it on a year-to-year basis. He and his staff are obviously going to be looking for guys who fit what they want to do.” In fact, Helwagen said transitioning offensive schemes will have more positives than negatives. “You’re talking about a coach who won two national championships in the last five years,” he said. “There aren’t many guys out there in coaching that can say they even have one.” Some students said they looked forward to the kinds of prospects Meyer could bring to OSU. Dustin Stinson, a third-year in sport and leisure studies, is interested to see if Meyer can lure some “Florida speed” to OSU. “I think he’ll recruit speed,” he said. “I’m interested to see his Florida contacts and what he can bring from the speed state.” Kyle Becker, a second-year in exploration, believes recruiting will be solid with current coach Luke Fickell still around. Fickell will remain on Meyer’s coaching staff next year, though his role is not yet known. “Recruiting will jolt,” Becker said. “I think we need to keep Fickell because he is honestly a good defensive coach and I heard he is a good recruiter.” David Gerad and William Hessler contributed to this story. Now that Urban Meyer has been confirmed as Ohio State’s next head football coach, he’ll turn his attention to the recruiting trail. Meyer will take the reigns on a 2012 recruiting class currently ranked No. 14 by and not ranked in the top 25 by ESPN. The class is led by five-star defensive end Adolphus Washington and five-star running back Bri’onte Dunn. Meyer made it known during his introductory press conference Monday that he was going to put a heavy focus on recruiting, even saying he was looking forward to recruiting the state of Ohio and making calls to recruits soon after the press conference was over. “I can’t wait to get back involved in that,” he said. Meyer, who was called an “outstanding recruiter” by OSU athletic director Gene Smith in Monday’s press conference, has a history of raking in highly ranked recruiting classes. Meyer’s recruiting classes from 2005-2010 at Florida were ranked No. 15, No. 2, No, 1, No. 3, No. 11 and No. 2, respectively, according to Steve Helwagen, managing editor of, said Meyer might be able to salvage a top-10 class by National Signing Day, which is set for Feb. 1, 2012. “He’s got a national name,” Helwagen said. “He’s right with (Alabama head coach) Nick Saban right now (as) probably the most famous college football coach out there. I think that’s going to open doors.” Saban, for example, has garnered the fourth-ranked recruiting class for the Crimson Tide for 2012, according to Still, Helwagen said it’s best to wait for 2013 for an elite recruiting class at OSU. “I really wouldn’t get too wrapped out or worried about this class,” Helwagen said. “Where you’re going to see his impact is next year. My guess is he’ll have a top five class next year and probably stack one on top of another is my guess.” Part of boosting the talent in those classes is pulling talent out of places Meyer locked down while at Florida. That includes the state of Florida, which is known for its “SEC speed.” Meyer said it will be tough to recruit the South, especially with powerhouses such as Alabama scooping up talent. “The SEC is hot right now,” he said. “And I’ve recruited against Alabama as well. They’re hot. But so is Ohio State.” Helwagen also said it might be difficult for Meyer to easily sign those players, but his history there will help him. “It’s going to be more of a challenge to get some of those guys to come up to Ohio and play in the Big Ten but he’s got the ties back there in Florida to really go in there and try and get some good players,” he said. read more

After nearly a decade Skype finally becomes adsupported

first_imgSkype is such a bastion of basic Internet service that most of us at this point take free VoIP and dirt cheap telephone calls for granted. Unfortunately, Skype never has been able to do the same: the company has always had a hard time with profitability, and it’s been traded and sold so many times between various parties at this point that it may very well be one of Silicon Valley’s most in-demand call girls. Things have only gotten worse as companies like Google have entered the VoIP fray with products like Google Voice. Skype needs to try new things to stay profitable… and now they’ve announced one of their first steps after charging for group video calls towards a more lucrative business model.AdChoices广告Sadly, it’s ads. Skype has just announced that it will begin showing advertisements as part of the Skype for Windows home tab starting later this week, which will be the first time that advertising has been promoted within the app. Ads will start rolling out in the US, UK and Germany first, with other countries to follow, while some of the first advertisers will include Groupon, Nokia, Universal Pictures and Visa, who have opted to buy daily ad campaigns.Thankfully, Skype’s approach to ubiquitous ads in the desktop app isn’t entirely noxious: there’ll be a “hide ad” button for users fed up with seeing ads on a daily basis. Skype is also making it easier for people to reach out to the buyers of an ad space with a “Click & Call” button that makes ordering a proffered deal just a click away. They will also add a new “share” button that will hook into social networks like Facebook and Twitter.No doubt this move is likely to annoy Skype users, but honestly, Skype’s been giving away free VoIP for years: we frankly can’t believe it’s taken this long to implement advertising.last_img read more

Loi SOPA Reddit proteste en fermant ses portes temporairement

first_imgLoi SOPA : Reddit proteste en fermant ses portes temporairementCe site de partage d’informations stoppera son activité le 18 janvier prochain pour une durée de 12 heures, pour protestation contre le projet de loi américain SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).Cette loi concerne la lutte contre le téléchargement illégal aux USA (une cousine d’HADOPI). Selon le porte parole de Reddit, “des forces puissantes sont à l’œuvre afin de tenter de censurer Internet”, ce qui rend cette loi dangereuse.

Toni Kroos identifies Real Madrids problems this season

first_imgGerman midfielder Toni Kroos, offered an interview in which he opened up about Real Madrid’s biggest problems from the start of the season.Now that Real Madrid appears to have recovered from the terrible start of the season they had under manager Julen Lopetegui, midfielder Toni Kroos spoke freely about the reasons behind this level drop in Los Blancos during an interview with ‘Die Welt’.The main factor appears to be a physical conditioning that the players didn’t have by the start of the season, Julen Lopetegui brought his very own therapist and he left Antonio Pintus on the sidelines, the physical guru that kept all the Real Madrid players fit during the last three seasons.Every single year has been the same for Los Blancos, they start the season slow and sometimes even give up La Liga very early in the competition but they eventually recover well-enough to fight again for the Champions League trophy.But this season without Pintus or Zidane for that matter, things seemed to be going differently because Julen Lopetegui didn’t understand how the dynamic of these players worked.It didn’t take long for president Florentino Perez to realize that Julen wasn’t the man for the job and he decided to sack him in order to give Santiago Solari a chance as the interim manager.Kroos: “Por supuesto que tuvimos algunos problemas y regalamos demasiados puntos en la primera mitad de la temporada en la Liga. Sin embargo, siempre supe que teníamos un equipo de primera. Todavía tenemos la oportunidad de ganar títulos”.— Arancha Rodríguez (@AranchaMOBILE) January 29, 2019While the Argentine manager was also dragging all the negative energy from the last boss, he did understand that bringing Pintus to the front of the whole operation was essential and the players would need a couple of months to get back into rhythm.Now after a few months have passed, things don’t seem to have turned up so bad as they are still alive in Copa del Rey and they are not so far away from La Liga’s top contenders Barcelona (only 10 points).The players still hadn’t talked about the reason behind this massive change of dynamic, but Toni Kroos did offer an interview to German publication ‘Die Welt’ and explained what the whole process has been like under the new manager.All the players seem to be in a good dynamic now, they have no doubts that they will fight for trophies by the end of the season and they even still hold a beacon of hope to fight for La Liga when the time comes to play the important matches during the final months of the competition.Toni Kroos is a perfect example of how far along the squad has come with this new regime, he started the season in very poor form and now things are vastly different only by looking at his latest performances with the club.Toni Kroos vs. Espanyol:90 Minutes113 Touches (most)85/88 Passes6/8 Long Balls96.6% Pass Accuracy (highest)6 Crosses (most)4 Tackles (most)3 Shots3 Key Passes3 Times Fouled (most)1 Interception1 Clearance 1 Dribble1 Aerial Duel WonSergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Glad he’s back— RMadridHome (@RMadridHome_) January 29, 2019“The secret lies in not making too many mistakes. Every victory fills the whole squad with confidence in ourselves, you get good sensations…” said Kroos during the interview.“We never stopped working hard, even when things didn’t go our way and we made a lot of mistakes. We had some problems and we have given away too many La Liga points during the first half of the season, but that’s in the past now.”“It is very important having someone who can physically take us to a top level of performance, but this is not as easy as it sounds during the season because you can’t have the more traditional type of preparation due to the tight calendar.”“Antonio Pintus has been here all along, but he may have had a slightly bigger influence with Zidane than he did with Lopetegui, who brought his own physical therapist.”“The most important thing now is that some players are in much better shape than during the first half of the season.”“We still have two competitions to worry about and that’s our main focus, because we still have chances to win titles this season.”“After the Club World Cup, it wasn’t the ideal time to have closure with anything or making an evaluation because we were still right in the middle of the season.”“This whole year has been very much like a footballer’s life, with ups and downs, that’s what makes it so interesting,” he concluded.⚽🎯 ¡Diana!🇩🇪 @ToniKroos 🇫🇷 @Benzema📍 #RMCity— Real Madrid C.F.⚽ (@realmadrid) January 22, 2019Which trophies do you think Real Madrid still has a chance of winning this season?

FBI Most Wanted Fugitive Arrested in Prince Georges County

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, mgray@afro.comFor five years FBI investigators had been looking for Lamont Stephenson who allegedly killed his fiancée and her dog in 2014 then resigned himself to a secretive existence.  Stephenson became one of the 10 most wanted fugitives and was the subject of an intense investigation that last for more than half a decade before he made a critical mistake.Stephenson was apprehended with the help of Prince George’s County Police last week. He is believed to have been living in the D.C. area since leaving   New Jersey to avoid prosecution. Despite the resources that law enforcement authorities committed to the multi-year investigation it may have ultimately been his conscious that led to his capture.Lamont Stephenson, who had been on the FBI 10 Most Wanted list after allegedly killing his fiancée and her dog in 2014, was apprehended on March 6 in Prince George’s County.  Stephenson also admitted to killing a woman in D.C. the day prior.  (Courtesy Photo)According to Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinksi, officers responded to a 911 call around 2:00 am on March 6 about a suspicious person in a rental company truck parked outside of a closed business in the 7900 block of Annapolis Road.  The responding PGPD patrol officers approached the truck and began to talk to Stephenson, who was still inside, and began to check whether he had any open warrants. It was at that point, Stephenson told the officers he was wanted in New Jersey for murder. Stephenson was also checked for weapons and a knife was recovered. The suspect told the PGPD officers he also committed a crime in the District on Wednesday night.PGPD officers said he was calm and cooperative during the arrest. He willingly offered up his real name and referenced the outstanding charges against him.  Published reports say he was “relieved” when the officers arrested him after being in virtual seclusion, because the FBI had a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest since he had been living under a societal radar while on their most wanted list.“If he had given us a false name, we might not have had this result,” Stawinski told WTOP-FM in D.C.Perhaps the guilt of allegedly killing the woman he intended to marry and his admission that he killed another woman in the District on March 5 led to his surrender.  Stephenson reportedly admitted his role in the death of 40-year-old Natina Kiah who was stabbed to death in her bedroom, according to a D.C. police report.According to multiple reports, a family member called to ask police to check in on Kiah who lived an apartment on D Street Southeast.Police say after allegedly murdering Olga DeJesus and her Chihuahua in 2014, he came to the D.C. region and was living as a criminal refugee. Stawkinski said he had been living in the area for the last several years, though he appeared to be homeless.Kiah’s mother tells FOX 5 News in D.C. that her daughter met Stephenson at the D.C. homeless shelter where she worked security. She says Kiah had known him for about six months and met him while working for Metropolitan Protective Services.The FBI had a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. Stephenson has family members in Virginia, according to court documents related to the 2014 charges, and in 2015 pictures of Stephenson were aired on a local news station in the commonwealth and several people reported they believed they had seen him there.A representative for the FBI said this is one of the reasons the “10 Most Wanted” list exists. The people featured on the list are chosen because the FBI believes public awareness and an increased profile will make them easier to find.Stephenson was taken into custody and brought to the Criminal Investigation Division. The Prince George’s County Police Department who immediately contacted authorities in Essex County, New Jersey and the Metropolitan Police Department.last_img read more

CyberKnife System Provides Longterm Disease Control for Prostate Cancer Patients

first_img News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more February 17, 2017 — Accuray Inc. recently announced data from a prospective, Phase II, 17-center study which showed that treatment with the CyberKnife System for low- and intermediate-risk prostate cancer provides excellent long-term results. At five years, the disease-free survival rate for low-risk prostate cancer patients was 100 percent and for intermediate-risk patients was 88.5 percent. These results were maintained by patients followed for seven years.The study was presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU) Feb. 16-18, 2017, in Orlando, Fla.A low prostate-specific antigen (PSA) value is associated with a reduced risk of cancer recurrence or metastases. The lower the PSA value and the longer it continues to decline, the greater the patient’s likelihood of achieving long-term disease free survival1. According to the study, the five-year median PSA was 0.1 ng/mL for low- and intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients receiving stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) administered with the CyberKnife System. The median PSA value subsequently decreased to 0.035 ng/mL at the seven-year mark for patients followed to this time point.All patients participating in the study were treated with the CyberKnife System. Seventeen institutions analyzed 259 prostate cancer patients; 112 low-risk and 147 intermediate-risk. Patients received an HDR-like heterogeneous dosing regimen of 38 Gy/four fractions delivered by the CyberKnife System. The primary study objectives were to determine biochemical disease free survival (bDFS) and measure the rates of acute and late genitourinary and gastrointestinal toxicities following treatment, and to compare the CyberKnife System bDFS rates to published HDR brachytherapy bDFS rates reported in the literature.Unique aspects of this study included:A highly effective pattern of radiation could be delivered easily by any CyberKnife user as a routine part of their practice — such plans require steep dose fall-off from high-dose regions to rectum, and would be difficult to deliver safely without continual image-guidance and automatic correction of beam aim;Treatment resulted in among the lowest PSA levels reached after radiation therapy (PSA nadirs); andThe entire treatment was completed in four days.The CyberKnife System was designed to deliver SBRT, a treatment process enabling the delivery of radiation throughout the body with an extremely high degree of precision. The system’s ability to continually track and automatically correct for movement of the prostate in real-time throughout the entire treatment session provides distinct advantages when treating a tumor which can move as much as 10 mm in as little as 30 seconds2.”Outcomes from this long-term, prospective study reinforce that CyberKnife prostate SBRT is highly effective, with typically minimal side effects and impact on quality of life during and after treatment,” said Donald B. Fuller, M.D., at Genesis Healthcare Partners in San Diego, and lead investigator of the study. “It is important to note that nearly 90 percent of patients in the study were treated at community facilities across the United States, which may provide reassurance for men with localized prostate cancer that the results are achievable in their community setting.”The study evaluated a dosing regimen which emulated a high-dose brachytherapy (HDR) plan. It demonstrated that:Patients experienced low toxicity rates despite the high SBRT dosage and heterogeneous dose distribution specific to this study, with higher dosage in the prostate peripheral zone;The five-year local and distant failure-free remission rates (98.3 percent and 97.3 percent, respectively), for the entire patient population, were achieved with the CyberKnife System alone. This enables patients to avoid the unfortunate side effects associated with the use of androgen deprivation therapy (aka “hormone therapy”) including loss of libido, hot flashes, bone fractures and weight gain3; andThe results were obtained without the need for invasive rectal balloons or spacers to spare the rectal wall.For more information: www.accuray.comReferences1.

Government to punish protest leaders for damage caused during demonstrations

first_imgNo related posts. President Laura Chinchilla said Thursday her administration would seek an amendment to the law to hold people who convene public protests responsible for any damage that occurs during demonstrations.Chinchilla said she is disappointed by violence on Tuesday when a group of bikers damaged vehicles and clashed with frustrated drivers who were trying to circumvent blocked streets. They were part of hundreds of bikers protesting against an increase in the cost of mandatory circulation permits – known as marchamos – for 2013.The president insisted that the only condition the government has to negotiate is “for them [bikers] to refrain from blocking streets or attacking innocent citizens.” She also said she does not oppose street demonstrations “as long as they are done in a peaceful way.”Eugenio Badilla, coordinator of the Civic Committee of Motorcyclists, on Wednesday threatened a third street demonstration of “unpredictable consequences.”“To sit down and talk to these groups is a slap in the face of Costa Rican people. That is something we will not do,” Presidency Vice Minister Francisco Marín said on Thursday. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

CDC investigating error that caused live anthrax shipments

first_imgHe doesn’t know why it was sending anthrax and is perplexed at how the mistake was made.“This is an accident that should never happen,” Blechman said. “You should have double-triple-positive controls over any live, lethal agent.”Steve Erickson, of the volunteer military watchdog group Citizens Education Project, said the incident isn’t cause for panic but suggests more oversight is needed.“Ever since 9/11, there’s been a propensity to throw money at biodefense,” Erickson said. “When you allow these activities to blossom and burgeon over a period of years without any effective oversight, you are asking for trouble.”The Dugway Proving Ground was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The site has gone through name changes and been closed and reopened several times.It sits on 180,000 acres of flat, desert terrain. It’s miles from any population base, but it has a village with an elementary and high school, medical clinic, a few restaurants, a theater, pool, gym, and homes and temporary lodging.About 1,700 people work at Dugway, including a mix of military and nonmilitary scientists, chemists, microbiologists and engineers. Top Stories Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army chief of staff, told reporters the problem may have been a failure in the technical process of killing, or inactivating, anthrax samples.Odierno said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating what went wrong at Dugway Proving Ground, the Army installation in Utah where the anthrax originated.Officials said the government labs that received the suspect anthrax were at the Army’s Edgewood Chemical Biological Center in Maryland and the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Virginia. The rest were commercial labs, which the Pentagon has declined to identify, citing legal constraints.Some of the samples sent from Utah were also transferred to other labs in the U.S. by the Edgewood center, a research and development resource for nonmedical chemical and biological defense.CDC spokesman Jason McDonald said four people at labs in Delaware, Texas and Wisconsin were recommended to get antibiotics as a precaution, although they are not sick. U.S. officials at Osan Air Base in South Korea said 22 people were being treated for possible exposure.Odierno said normal procedures had been followed, and that he was not aware that such a problem had surfaced previously at Dugway.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Army’s top general said Thursday that human error probably was not a factor in the Army’s mistaken shipment of live anthrax samples from a chemical weapons testing site that was opened more than 70 years ago in a desolate stretch of desert in Utah.Samples from the anthrax lot ended up at 18 labs in nine states and an Army lab in South Korea, leading more than two dozen people to get treatment for possible exposure. Four benefits of having a wireless security system But there have been at least two other questionable incidents at the military post 85 miles west of Salt Lake City that has been testing chemical and biological warfare weapons since it was opened in 1942.In 2011, Dugway was locked down for 12 hours because less than one-fourth of a teaspoon of VX nerve agent was unaccounted for.Military officials launched an internal investigation, but the results were not released. Questions about the incident were not answered Thursday by military officials. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said in 2011 that he met with the base commander and that the issue had been resolved to his satisfaction.In 1968, Dugway came under scrutiny when 6,000 sheep died nearby. An Army report acknowledged that the nerve agent was found in snow and grass samples, The Salt Lake Tribune reported based on a report that was declassified in 1978. An Army spokesman said in the late 1990s that state agriculture scientists never identified the cause of death of the sheep.Herbert said in a statement he’s concerned about the incident and is working with the CDC to monitor the investigation.Test facilities like Dugway are intended to develop ways to defend against biochemical warfare, which some fear could be used by terrorists, said Barry M.
