Conspiracy cries BJP ally warns it will quit Goa govt

first_imgPanaji: The Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), support of whose three MLAs is crucial for the stability of BJP-led dispensation in Goa, Tuesday said a “conspiracy” was being hatched by “our rivals” that might force it to move out and align with the Congress to form a new government. The party has three MLAs in the 40-Member Goa Assembly and its senior leader and Marcaim legislator Sudin Dhavalikar is the deputy chief minister in the Pramod Sawant government.

Dhavalikar said the MGP Central Committee would meet Wednesday to chalk out its future course of action, which, he claimed, can decide the fate of the state government. “There is a larger conspiracy under which one of our senior officer bearers, general secretary Lavoo Mamlatdar, was made to issue a letter to the governor and speaker, in which he stated that he was taking over the entire authority on legislative affairs of the party,” Dhavalikar said. He said his party was the state’s oldest regional outfit but some sections were opposed to its growth. Mamlatdar had last week written a letter to the governor and Assembly speaker stating he was the sole authority in the MGP to communicate party decisions to them. Following the letter, the MGP had expelled Mamlatdar.last_img read more

Ending river blindness possible with commonlyused drug finds UN study

Over 37 million people, mostly in poor, rural African communities are infected with onchocerciasis, which is often called river blindness because the blackfly which transmits the disease breeds in rivers. Blindness is the most debilitating symptom of this public health threat which also causes skin disease.Published today in the open-access journal PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases are the results of a study showing that treatment with ivermectin stopped further infections and transmission in three specific areas of Mali and Senegal where the disease has been endemic.Previously, it was thought that elimination of river blindness was only possible in the limited, isolated areas in the Americas where the disease is endemic, according to a news release issued by the UN World Health Organization (WHO), which collaborated with the health ministries of the two countries in carrying out the study. “This evidence is an historic milestone – it has far-reaching implications for the fight against this disease. Prior to this study we did not know if we would ever be able to stop treatment,” said Uche Amazigo, the Director of the African Programme for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC).APOC is charged with implementing control of the disease across Africa, where more than 99 per cent of cases are found.Merck & Co., Inc. – the company that discovered and manufactures ivermectin – agreed in 1987 to donate the drug free of charge to countries where river blindness is endemic, resulting in the treatment of over 60 million people in 26 African countries in 2008. While this enabled the control of river blindness in Africa, it has not been clear whether it could also be used to eliminate infection and transmission to the extent that treatment with ivermectin could be safely stopped, said WHO.The agency noted that ivermectin kills the larvae but not the adult worms of Onchocerca volvulus, the parasite that causes the disease, so annual or biannual treatments are required to prevent resurgence. The study shows that after 15 to 17 years of six monthly or annual treatments, only a few infections remained in the human population. “Transmission levels were below predicted thresholds for elimination, so treatment was subsequently stopped in test areas and follow-up evaluations after 1.5 to two years showed that no further infections or transmission occurred,” stated WHO.“Although further studies are needed to determine to what extent these findings can be extrapolated to other areas in Africa, the principle of onchocerciasis elimination with ivermectin treatment has been established,” it added. Earlier this month, WHO announced the launch of a clinical trial in three African countries for the drug moxidectin, which is being investigated for its potential to kill or sterilize the adult worms of the parasite that causes river blindness.If moxidectin kills not only the larvae but also sterilizes or kills the adult worms, it has the potential to interrupt the disease transmission cycle within around six annual rounds of treatment, according to WHO.The development of the drug is being conducted through a collaboration of the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, which is executed by WHO and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. The trial involves 1,500 people in Ghana, Liberia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and will take place over the next two and a half years. 21 July 2009Eliminating river blindness is feasible with ivermectin, a commonly-used drug that has contributed to significantly controlling the disease in endemic countries, according to evidence published today in a United Nations study. read more

Astéroïde Toutatis suivez en direct son passage près de la Terre

first_imgAstéroïde Toutatis : suivez en direct son passage près de la TerreAujourd’hui, 12 décembre, l’astéroïde Toutatis réalise son plus proche passage de la Terre, en “frôlant” notre planète à une distance d’environ 7 millions de kilomètres. Un évènement que plusieurs sites internet proposent de suivre en direct.Observé pour la première fois en 1934, l’astéroïde Toutatis n’a officiellement été découvert qu’en 1989. Depuis, cette masse rocheuse de 5 kilomètres de long a été listée parmi les objets potentiellement dangereux pour la Terre. L’astéroïde est donc surveillé de près au cours de son voyage autour du Soleil qu’il effectue en quatre années. Mais cette semaine, l’observation s’est accentuée alors que Toutatis effectue son plus proche passage près de notre planète. En effet, aujourd’hui, mercredi 12 décembre, l’astéroïde doit passer à quelque 7 millions de kilomètres de la Terre. Une distance largement suffisante pour que cette approche ne représente aucune menace pour notre planète mais suffisamment petite pour que celle-ci permette tout de même une bonne observation de Toutatis. Les scientifiques prévoient ainsi de scruter le gros objet à l’aide de leurs télescopes afin d’en apprendre plus sur lui. Et comme il ne sera pas visible à l’oeil nu, certains ont décidé de partager leurs observations avec le grand public. Plusieurs sites internet proposent ainsi dès ce soir et jusqu’à demain de scruter le ciel, à travers une vidéo, à la recherche de Toutatis.Deux webdiffusions pour voir Toutatis de différentes manières C’est notamment le cas du service de télescopes robotiques Slooh qui offrira dès ce soir, 21H (heure française), la possibilité de suivre ce que voient les télescopes d’un des observatoires situés aux Canaries ou au Chili. “L’équipe technique de Slooh laissera le public suivre l’astéroïde qui se déplace rapidement, de deux manières différentes. Sur une première vue, les étoiles en arrière-plan seront suivies à leur propre rythme et l’astéroïde apparaitra sous la forme d’une trainée évidente ou d’un point mouvant dans le champ étoilé”, a expliqué dans un communiqué Bob Berman de l’Astronomy Magazine qui commentera l’évènement. À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembre”Sur une seconde vue, Toutatis lui-même sera suivi et tenu immobile comme un minuscule objet ressemblant à un point, tandis que la rotation de la Terre fera filer comme des trainées les étoiles de l’arrière-plan. Les deux méthodes rendront évident le rapide mouvement orbital de l’astéroïde alors qu’il passe près de nous dans l’espace”, a ajouté ce spécialiste. L’évènement peut être suivi sur le site de Slooh : http://events.slooh.com/ (lien non disponible)Mais d’autres scientifiques partageront aussi leurs observations et notamment ceux du Virtual Telescope Project dirigé par Gianluca Masi de l’Observatoire astronomique de Bellatrix en Italie. Après avoir déjà observé l’astéroïde au cours des jours précédents, l’équipe de ce projet offrira une webdiffusion demain, jeudi 13 décembre à partir de 21H (heure française).

Trump says hes watching Google very closely slams CEO Sundar Pichai

first_img US Tech Policy Comments Enlarge ImagePresident Donald Trump attacked Google CEO Sundar Pichai in an early-morning tweet storm. James Martin/CNET President Donald Trump is again going after Google. In a series of early morning tweets, Trump attacked Google CEO Sundar Pichai and warned the search giant that he’s watching the company “very closely” ahead of the 2020 US election. Trump said he met with Pichai in the Oval Office and raised questions about Google’s role in the 2016 election, as well as the company’s artificial intelligence work in China. He also suggested, without evidence, that Google is trying to “illegally subvert” the next election. “All very illegal,” Trump tweeted. “We are watching Google very closely!” Share your voice See All Politics Jul 28 • Apple’s Q3 earnings are all about the iPhone 11 hints Tags Trump criticizes ‘censorship’ on social media, SpaceX… 4 Trump referenced Kevin Cernekee, a former Google engineer and subject of a Wall Street Journal profile last week, who claims he was fired from Google for his conservative views. Google on Tuesday called Cernekee a “disgruntled former employee” and said his statements about the company are “absolutely false.””We go to great lengths to build our products and enforce our policies in ways that don’t take political leanings into account,” a spokeswoman said. “Distorting results for political purposes would harm our business and go against our mission of providing helpful content to all of our users.”Trump’s accusation of anticonservative bias is a familiar refrain. Last August, Trump claimed that Google’s search results were “rigged” to promote negative news stories on Trump. At the time, the president told reporters, “I think Google has really taken advantage of a lot of people.” He added, “Google and Twitter and Facebook, they’re really treading on very, very troubled territory, and they have to be careful.”Last month, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he met with Pichai to discuss the company’s work in China. After the meeting, Mnuchin said he and Trump had no security concerns about Google’s work in the country. Two days later, though, Trump tweeted that there “may or may not” be security concerns. 1:23 US Tech Policy Aug 7 • Trump’s emissions and fuel economy rollbacks will cost Americans money, study says ….are NOT planning to illegally subvert the 2020 Election despite all that has been said to the contrary.

Trump Clintons daughter wage twitter combat

first_imgIvanka TrumpUS President Donald Trump defended his daughter Ivanka Trump on Monday after she took his place at a meeting of G20 world leaders, an event that raised some eyebrows and drew sharp rebuke from the daughter of a rival former presidential candidate who was drawn into the fray.”If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!” he tweeted, referring to the daughter of Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival in last year’s presidential election.Chelsea Clinton responded on Twitter: “Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.”White House adviser Ivanka Trump briefly sat in her father’s chair on Saturday at a Group of 20 summit meeting in Hamburg, Germany, during a closed-door session on African development as the World Bank president spoke.Her appearance prompted a string of reactions on Twitter and caught the attention of the German media and other outlets.Donald Trump, in a separate tweet, called the arrangement “very standard” and also noted that German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was hosting the G20 summit, agreed.Merkel had dismissed the move at a news briefing after the summit.”Ivanka belongs to the U.S. delegation,” Merkel, who has worked with her on various issues, said last week.Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, also defended Ivanka, saying on Sunday that the president’s daughter had often sat in on meetings with her and Trump, especially those regarding women and business.Ivanka Trump ran a clothing and jewelry business before taking a formal job at the White House after her father took office in January and has adopted women’s issues as a signature policy area.At the G20, she also took the spotlight at a separate event alongside World Bank President Jim Yong Kim for a public-private loan program aimed at boosting female entrepreneurs in developing countries.Lawrence Summers, a former World Bank official and economic adviser under former Democratic president Barack Obama, said it was rare for government heads to leave during major summits and that, when they must, foreign ministers or other very senior government officials normally fill in.”There is no precedent for a head of government’s adult child taking a seat,” he wrote in the Washington Post. “There is no precedent for good reason. It was insulting to the others present and sent a signal of disempowerment regarding senior government officials.”last_img read more

How the man in Khashoggi murder ran killing via Skype

first_imgA still image taken from CCTV video and obtained by TRT World claims to show Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, highlighted in a red circle by the source, as he arrives at Saudi Arabia`s Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on 2 October. Photo: ReutersHe ran social media for Saudi Arabia’s crown prince. He masterminded the arrest of hundreds of his country’s elite. He detained a Lebanese prime minister. And, according to two intelligence sources, he ran journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s brutal killing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by giving orders over Skype.Saud al-Qahtani, a top aide for Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, is one of the fall guys as Riyadh tries to stem international outrage at Khashoggi’s death. On Saturday, Saudi state media said King Salman had sacked Qahtani and four other officials over the killing carried out by a 15-man hit team.But Qahtani’s influence in the crown prince’s entourage has been so vast over the past three years – his own rise tracking that of his boss – that it will be hard for Saudi officials to paint Qahtani as the mastermind of the murder without also raising questions about the involvement of prince Mohammed, according to several sources with links to the royal court.”This episode won’t topple MbS, but it has hit his image which will take a long time to be repaired if it ever does. The king is protecting him,” one of the sources with ties to the royal court said.Qahtani himself once said he would never do anything without his boss’ approval.”Do you think I make decisions without guidance? I am an employee and a faithful executor of the orders of my lord the king and my lord the faithful crown prince,” Qahtani tweeted last summer.Qahtani did not respond to questions from Reuters. His biography on Twitter changed in recent days from royal adviser to chairman of the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones, a role he had held before.Prince Mohammed had no knowledge of the operation that led to Khashoggi’s death and “certainly did not order a kidnapping or murder of anybody”, a Saudi official said on Saturday. Officials in Riyadh could not be reached for further comment.As the crisis has grown over the past three weeks, Saudi Arabia has changed its tune on Khashoggi’s fate, first denying his death, then saying he died during a brawl at the consulate, and now attributing the death to a chokehold.A senior Saudi official told Reuters that the killers had tried to cover up what happened, contending that the truth was only now emerging. The Turks reject that version of the story, saying they have audio recordings of what happened.The kingdom has survived other crises in the past year, including the fallout of the crown prince’s short-lived kidnapping of Lebanese prime minister Saad al-Hariri in 2017. Hariri, too, was verbally humiliated and beaten, according to eight Saudi, Arab and Western diplomatic sources. The man leading that interrogation: Saud al-Qahtani.France intervened to free Hariri, but Western capitals did not take Riyadh to task for detaining a head of government – and Prince Mohammed emerged emboldened, according to these Saudi sources.This time is different, with some Western capitals increasingly critical of the murder and the Saudi explanation.Germany has announced it will stop arms sales, while Britain, France and Germany issued a joint statement asking for an “urgent … clarification of exactly what happened 2 October.”President Donald Trump has swung between saying he is unhappy with the Saudi investigation but also that he does not want to jeopardise US arms sales to the country.Skype CallTo stem the fallout of the Khashoggi killing, the crown prince, commonly known by his initials MbS, allowed Qahtani to take the fall, according to one source close to the Saudi royal court.A second senior Saudi official said Qahtani had been detained following his sacking by royal decree, but he continued to tweet afterwards. The sources with links to the royal court said he was not believed to be under arrest.In the Khashoggi killing, Qahtani was present as he has been in other key moments of MbS’s administration. This time, though, his presence was virtual.Khashoggi, a US-based Saudi journalist often critical of Saudi Arabia and its leadership, walked into the Istanbul consulate at around 1:00pm on 2 October, to pick up some documents that would allow him to marry.Turkish security sources say he was immediately seized inside the consulate by 15 Saudi intelligence operatives who had flown in on two jets just hours before.According to one high-ranking Arab source with access to intelligence and links to members of Saudi Arabia’s royal court, Qahtani was beamed into a room of the Saudi consulate via Skype.He began to hurl insults at Khashoggi over the phone. According to the Arab and Turkish sources, Khashoggi answered Qahtani’s insults with his own. But he was no match for the squad, which included top security and intelligence operatives, some with direct links to the royal court.A Turkish intelligence source relayed that at one point Qahtani told his men to dispose of Khashoggi. “Bring me the head of the dog”, the Turkish intelligence source says Qahtani instructed.It is not clear if Qahtani watched the entire proceedings, which the high-ranking Arab source described as a “bungled and botched operation”.The Arab source and the Turkish intelligence source said the audio of the Skype call is now in the possession of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan. The sources say he is refusing to release it to the Americans.Erdogan said on Sunday he would release information about the Turkish investigation during a weekly speech on Tuesday. Three Turkish officials reached by Reuters declined to comment ahead of that speech.The senior Saudi official who laid out the official version of events – that Khashoggi had got into a fight – said he had not heard about Qahtani appearing via Skype, but that the Saudi investigation was ongoing.Qahtani’s RiseQahtani, 40, has earned a reputation at home as both a violent enforcer of princely whims and as a strident nationalist. In blogs and on social media, some liberal Saudi journalists and activists dubbed him the Saudi Steve Bannon for his aggressive manipulation of the news media and behind-the-scenes strategizing.Qahtani wrote odes on Twitter to the royal family under the pen name Dari, which means predator in Arabic. Some of his opponents on social media call him Dalim, a figure in Arabic folklore who rose from being a lowly servant to much greater heights.According to his biography on his Twitter account, Qahtani studied law and made the rank of captain in the Saudi air force. After launching a blog, he caught the eye of Khaled al-Tuwaijri, the former head of the royal court, who hired him in the early 2000s to run an electronic media army tasked with protecting Saudi Arabia’s image, according to a source with ties to the royal court.Tuwaijri is under house arrest and could not be reached for comment.Qahtani rose to further prominence after latching onto prince Mohammed, who was part of his father Salman’s court as Riyadh governor, then crown prince and finally king in 2015Tasked with countering alleged Qatari influence on social media, Qahtani used Twitter to attack criticism of the kingdom in general and prince Mohammed in particular. He also ran a WhatsApp group with local newspaper editors and prominent journalists, dictating the royal court’s line.When Riyadh led an economic boycott against Qatar in June 2017, Qahtani ramped up his attacks on the small Gulf state. Online, he urged Saudis to tweet the names of anyone showing sympathy with Qatar under the Arabic hashtag “The Black List”.The high-ranking Arab official and Saudi sources with ties to the royal court said Qahtani was MbS’s “bad cop” late last year when 200 people, including Saudi princes, ministers and business tycoons, were detained and put under house arrest at the Ritz Carlton in an anti-corruption sweep. Qahtani oversaw some of the interrogations, the Arab official said.A KidnappingThe extent of Qahtani’s power is perhaps best illustrated by the kidnapping of Lebanese prime minister Saad al-Hariri last year, several of the Saudi and Arab diplomatic sources said.The Saudis were incensed at the inability of Hariri, a Sunni Muslim and a Saudi client, to stand up to their regional rival Iran and Hezbollah, the Shi’ite paramilitary movement that acts as Tehran’s spearhead in the region. Hariri belonged to the same multi-party coalition government as Hezbollah.The Saudis were particularly dismayed that Hariri had failed to deliver a message to a top adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to stop interfering in Lebanon and Yemen. Hariri claimed he had delivered the Saudi message, but an informer, planted by Qahtani in Hariri’s circle, gave the Saudis the minutes of the meeting which showed that he had not done so.The Saudis lured Hariri to Riyadh for a meeting with MbS. Upon his arrival on 3 Novomber, 2017, there was no line-up of Saudi princes or officials, as would typically greet a prime minister on an official visit. Hariri later received a call that the meeting with the crown prince would take place the next day at a royal compound.When Hariri arrived, he was ushered into a room where Qahtani was waiting for him with a security team, according to three Arab sources familiar with the incident. The security team beat Hariri; Qahtani cursed at him and then forced him to resign as prime minister in a statement that was broadcast by a Saudi-owned TV channel.”He (Qahtani) told him you have no choice but to resign and read this statement,” said one of the sources. “Qahtani oversaw the interrogation and ill-treatment of Hariri.”Another source said it was the intervention of French president Emmanuel Macron that secured his release following an international outcry.Macron claimed credit in May for ending the crisis, saying an unscheduled stopover in Riyadh to convince MbS, followed by an invitation to Hariri to come to France, had been the catalyst to resolving it. Lebanese officials confirmed to Reuters that Macron’s quick intervention secured Hariri’s return.Saudi officials could not be reached for comment about the sequence of events or Qahtani’s involvement. French officials declined to comment when asked about Qahtani’s role.An Offer To Return HomeAt least three friends of Khashoggi told Reuters that in the months after the journalist moved to Washington a year ago he received multiple phone calls from MbS’s right-hand man urging him to return to Saudi Arabia. Khashoggi had balked, they said, fearing reprisals for his Washington Post columns and outspoken views.Qahtani had tried to reassure the former newspaper editor that he was still well respected and had offered the journalist a job as a consultant at the royal court, the friends said.Khashoggi said that while he found Qahtani gentle and polite during those conversations, he did not trust him, one close friend told Reuters. “Jamal told me afterwards, ‘he thinks that I will go back so that he can throw me in jail?”The second senior Saudi official confirmed that Qahtani had spoken to Khashoggi about returning home. The ambush in Istanbul seems to have been another way to get him home.How much did the crown prince know about his trusted aide’s plan to abduct Khashoggi?Most of the 15 hit-man team identified by Turkish and Saudi authorities worked for the kingdom’s security and intelligence services, military, government ministries, royal court security and air force. One of them, general Maher Mutreb, a senior intelligence officer, who is part of the security team of Prince Mohammed, appeared in photographs with him on official visits earlier this year to the United States and Europe.The high-ranking Arab official and the Turkish intelligence source said it was Mutreb’s phone that was used to dial in Qahtani while Khashoggi was being interrogated.Reuters tried to contact members of 15-man team but their phones were either switched off, on voicemail or no longer in service.The Saudi official said deputy intelligence chief general Ahmed al-Asiri put together the 15-man squad from the intelligence and security forces. Asiri was one of the five officials dismissed on Saturday.Another key figure was Salah al-Tubaigy, a forensic expert specialised in autopsies attached to the Saudi Ministry of Interior. His presence – equipped with a bone-saw Turkish sources say was used to dismember the journalist – is hard to explain in an operation Saudi officials now say was aimed at persuading Khashoggi to return home.It is hard to imagine that the crown prince could have not known about such a delicate operation, the Saudi sources with ties to the royal court say.The Saudi official who spoke on Saturday said an existing standing order provided authorisation to “negotiate” with dissidents to return home without requiring approval, but that the team involved with Khashoggi exceeded that authorisation.Another Saudi official close to the investigation said that Qahtani decided on his own to organise Khashoggi’s kidnapping and that he asked Asiri to get a team together, but that their plans had gone wrong.Qahtani’s final act may be to serve his boss by assuming the responsibility for the crisis that has hit Saudi Arabia since Khashoggi’s murder. The Saudi king has sacked Qahtani and ordered a restructuring of the general intelligence agency.last_img

NBC Sports Launches Philly Pass Streaming Subscription for OutofMarket Eagles Phillies and

first_imgHowever, to stream Eagles, Phillies or Sixers games live, fans will need to turn elsewhere. The NFL’s out-of-market package for Sunday games is available exclusively through DirecTV, while MLB sells the MLB.TV subscription service and NBA offers the similar League Pass.“Philadelphia sports fans are some of the most passionate in the country,” said David Preschlack, president of NBC Sports Regional Networks and Platform and Content Strategy, said in a statement. “We are pleased to offer displaced Philly fans the ability to watch our popular sports programs, and give them the insight and coverage of their home teams from the voices of NBC Sports Philadelphia.”“Philly Pass” is NBC Sports Regional Network’s second move into the over-the-top streaming space, but it’s very different from its first foray, “Blazers Pass.” Launched in November 2017, NBC Sports Gold “Blazers Pass,” $34.99 per season, provides select Portland Trail Blazers games live-streaming anywhere in the U.S. — although that plan is available only to residents in the Portland market, pursuant to NBA restrictions.NBC Sports Gold is available on multiple platforms, including Apple iOS, Android, Apple TV (fourth generation and later), Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast and online at NBCSportsGold.com. The streaming service is powered by Playmaker Media, NBC Sports Digital’s technology service.For now, NBC Sports has opted to not pursue a bundled-sports streaming subscription plan, as ESPN has with ESPN+.This summer, NBC Sports inked a three-year deal for the PGA Tour’s live-streaming subscription service, which will move exclusively to NBC Sports Gold in the U.S. starting in 2019. Other a la carte packages on NBC Sports Gold provide access to Britain’s Premier League soccer, Tour de France cycling, Rugby World Cup, the Boston Marathon and Pro Motocross. Also in 2019, it will add an IndyCar streaming subscription option.More info on the “Philly Pass” service is at nbcsports.com/gold/phillypass.Pictured above: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Attitude Separates Rodgers and Brady

The study compared these children to children with healthy brains.The finding is significant because children after treatment had less volume in the hippocampus — a part of the brain that plays an important role in memory. But while such a decrease usually is associated with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, brain injury, epileptic amnesia, encephalitis and aging, with those conditions both remote and recent memories are impaired, said lead author Melanie Sekeres, Ph.D., director of Sekeres Memory Laboratory at Baylor University.“The surprise, and the up side, is that episodic memories from before the children’s treatment were spared,” Sekeres said.For the study, published in The Journal of Neuroscience, researchers focused on “autobiographical memory,” which is linked to unique personal events. Autobiographical memory involves the recollection of emotional and perceptual details that allow a person to mentally re-experience the event, said Sekeres, assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience in Baylor University’s College of Arts & Sciences.Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are used to treat the most common malignant brain tumor in children — a medulloblastoma. The reduced volume of the hippocampus is likely due, in part, to radiation’s impact on the development of new cells in the nervous system, including the growth of new neurons in the hippocampus, or neurogenesis.“We know that these new cells play crucial roles in regulating memory and spatial learning, which is required to navigate. These treatments limit the brain’s ability to produce these new cells, which, in turn, limits the ability to form new memories,” Sekeres said.Research participants were 13 child survivors of brain tumors who had previously received radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment at least one year before the study. Twenty-eight healthy youths of similar ages (ranging from 7 to 18) also were recruited for the study, conducted with The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. All the youths completed the Children’s Autobiographical Interview — a standardized memory test — and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain.In individual interviews, children in both groups also were asked to recall memories from personal events that occurred at a specific time and place. Children were asked to recall a very old memory from an event before their radiation treatment (or an equally old memory for the healthy children), and a recent memory from within the past month. They were offered a list of events such as a birthday party, family trip, graduation and getting a pet but were told that they could choose another happening.The interview allowed children to freely recall without prompting before being asked general and specific questions about the event.“They have a hard time forming new, detailed memories,” Sekeres said. For example, when talking about a recent birthday party for a friend, they might tell how they met the friend and what that individual likes to do, but few specifics such as what they wore, the type of cake, what friends were there and what activities they did at the party, she said.“Such specific details might seem trivial, but these are precisely the kinds of details that allow us to vividly replay important events in our lives,” Sekeres said. “For most events, though, even healthy people forget a lot of specific details over time because we typically don’t need to retain all that incidental information. Some forgetting is normal and adaptive, and what we remember is the gist of an older event.” The patients were just as capable as healthy children of recalling these older memories, she said.But for children with brain tumors who have undergone radiation, the study suggested “deficits in their ability to either encode and/or retrieve highly detailed memories for personal events,” Sekeres said. “And those are the kind of memories that allow us to understand who we are and give us rich personal lives.“The study identifies an area of cognition that is inadvertently impacted by standard treatment methods, which has real consequences for the quality of life of the survivors. The physicians’ ultimate goal is to allow their patients to survive and to live as well as possible,” Sekeres said. “Although these treatments are often crucial in the effective management of the cancer, if the physicians and the family know there are these unintended side effects, that may be an additional factor to consider when exploring the treatment options.”For more information: www.jneurosci.orgReferenceSekeres M.J., Riggs L., Decker A., et al.

Philippine official 121K for car thiefs head

first_img Top holiday drink recipes It is not known where Yu is, or if he is still in the Philippines.Duterte said the offer was prompted by the recent discovery of a compound where cars allegedly stolen by Yu’s gang were being stored, adding the offer was open to anyone or any group, including Muslim and communist rebels.“Make your choice. Either you want to earn 2 million, or you want to earn 4 million, or if you want to be morbid about it _ bring the head of Ryan Yu to me and I will add 1 million,” he said. He suggested putting the head in an ice bag “so it won’t smell bad.”He said the money will come from contributions to his election campaign.De la Rosa said offering a reward for an arrest is legal, adding that if Yu resists his death could be justified. “I have no comment about that,” he said when asked about the reward for the decapitation.He urged the public to cooperate with police officers, who will share in the reward. “Otherwise we will have so many Ryan Yus or people who look like him dead,” he said.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Top Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   Associated PressMANILA, Philippines (AP) – The vice mayor of a southern Philippine city has offered a $121,000 reward for the decapitated head of the alleged leader of a gang of car thieves.Davao City Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, known for being tough on criminals, told a news conference in Davao on Wednesday that he would give 2 million pesos ($48,400) if suspect Ryan Yu is arrested and 4 million pesos ($96,800) if he’s killed. He said he’d add another 1 million pesos ($24,200) if Yu’s decapitated head is delivered to him “on ice.” Davao police chief Ronald de la Rosa said Friday that he had received text messages from people seeking assurances the reward offer was real. He said they should cooperate with police.Human rights commission chairman Loretta Rosales said Friday that Duterte violated the law by passing a sentence on Yu without due process.Duterte’s offer comes as he runs virtually unopposed to regain his seat as mayor of Davao. His daughter is currently the mayor but won’t seek reelection. His son, Paolo, is running as his vice mayor.Rosales urged Interior Secretary Mar Roxas to take action against Duterte, who has been indirectly linked to a “death squad” that was responsible for over 200 killings of suspected criminals, including some minors, when he was mayor from 2004 to 2009. He has denied any involvement.“What he says … is irresponsible coming from a person of authority,” Rosales said. “That is an extrajudicial killing. He is justifying extrajudicial killing.”Duterte told reporters that Yu had made unfounded allegations of car smuggling against his son, Paolo, late last year and that received a call from Roxas on behalf of President Benigno Aquino III asking about the allegations.
