Prolife group condemns attack on office as grotesque and vile

first_imgEXCREMENT WAS SMEARED on the door, locks and shutters of the Youth Defence office in an attack they have described as “grotesque and vile”.The faeces was used to stick photos and news clippings of Savita Halappanavar to the outside of the building on Capel Street in Dublin.They say the incident, which happened late on Tuesday night, is now being investigated by the Gardaí.Clare Molloy of Youth Defence has blamed abortion campaigners for the office attack and said they are ‘truly disgusting’ and they have now reached a new low. “This behaviour is beneath contempt, and I am saddened that such naked aggression and hatred is being displayed by abortion campaigners.”(Image: Youth Defence)Niamh Uí Bhriain of Life Institute said: “It’s so enormously disrespectful and insulting to Savita’s memory. How they think this will further their cause is beyond anyone’s understanding.”However, Sarah Malone of the Abortion Rights Campaign said whoever did this had no affiliation to their group and there are better ways to get involved in the debate.“Savita died because of the laws in this country and that needs to be highlighted but not in this way,” Malone added.A garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie they were investigating criminal damage at the office which happened at around 10.10pm on Tuesday night. They said they are currently going through CCTV footage for more information.Read: Pro Life opinion poll shows 3 in 4 are against abortion >last_img read more

30 find work through Herrera Beutlers job fair

first_imgThirty of 1,700 job seekers were hired after attending a Vancouver job fair last month organized by Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas.And although jobs went to just 1.8 percent of candidates, the congresswoman said she plans to hold more job fairs in the future, according to a written statement issued Tuesday. Interviews were granted to 217 job seekers, or 12.8 percent of the people who showed up and waited in line to file past the 70 prospective employers that participated. The event was held at the Red Lion Hotel Vancouver at the Quay on Sept. 28. By contrast, New Seasons Market hired 6.9 percent, or 107, of the 1,600 applicants who attended a Sept. 23 event to staff the Portland-based organic grocer’s new Vancouver store, opening in November.Approximately 21,980 Clark County residents were unemployed and looking for work in August, the most recent figures issued by the Washington state Employment Security Department.Experts say the odds are slim of finding employment through a job fair, according to an Associated Press article published this month.Job fairs scored lowest in a survey of human resources executives asked about job-search methods in 2009. Many employers said few of the people who show up at job fairs have the specific skills they’re looking for.That wasn’t the case for at least one employer who participated in Herrera Beutler’s job fair, according to a written statement issued by Herrera Beutler’s office.last_img read more

Alaskan Appointed To Top Position At Interior Department

first_imgThe leased lands are not only close to the pipeline, but allow companies to tap into two new prospects, the Nanushuk and Torok formations. Alaska Bureau of Land Management associate state director Ted Murphy pointed out that it is important to note that the further west you travel in the NPR-A the less infrastructure there is to support development. All of the leases sold adjoin current leases. Balash, who served as served as chief of staff to Senator Dan Sullivan and Natural Resources Commissioner under Governor Sean Parnell, had previously fought for an Alaska-led plan to allow modern seismic studies in ANWR. T ConocoPhillips and Anadarko, jointly bid on a total of about 80,000 acres, building upon the new Willow oil discovery made within NPR-A, and announced a year ago. During Balash’s tenure, the state filed a claim requesting the transfer of 20,000 acres in ANWR from the federal government to the state of Alaska. The BLM rejected the claim, and now Balash could have the power to overturn such a decision. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The U.S. Senate confirmed Alaskan Joe Balash to a top position at the Interior Department on Thursday, serving as assistant secretary for land and minerals management under Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. While only seven of the 900 leases offered in the NPR-A were sold, causing strong discussion on the value of opening less accessible ANWR, it’s important to recognize that the short window between the announcement that the properties would be available and the actual lease offered minimal opportunity for planning and resource allocation for the bidders. During Balash’s Senate confirmation hearing, he pledged to work on speeding permits and allowing responsible drilling and mining, and improve recreational access to federal lands.

YouTube to ban supremacist and hoax videos in tougher hate speech policy

first_img Comments 13:29 YouTube also said Wednesday it would remove channels that “brush up” against its hate speech rules — but don’t necessarily break them — from its YouTube Partner Program, which lets creators run ads on their channel and use other monetization features. For other “borderline” content, YouTube said it would reduce the reach of the video and surround it by more authoritative content, like putting a video on the topic from a trusted news source in the “Watch next” panel.YouTube hasn’t banned Crowder’s channel, but later Wednesday said it would suspend its monetization. “We came to this decision because a pattern of egregious actions has harmed the broader community and is against our YouTube Partner Program policies,” the company tweeted. However, the company said in a follow-up tweet that Crowder would be able to monetize his channel again if he addressed certain issues, including removing a link from the video selling his T-shirts and merchandise. YouTube didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about what else would need to be fixed. The new hate speech policy also comes as platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter face intense scrutiny for their ability to police the content on their platforms. Facebook in March announced it was banning white nationalist and separatist content. But it has also faced blowback for its decision to leave up a video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that had been doctored to make her appear drunk. (YouTube decided the video was inappropriate and removed it from its service.)YouTube also said it has partnered with lawmakers and other organizations to help combat the spread of extremism on its service. On Wednesday, one of those partners, the Anti-Defamation League, applauded the new policy by YouTube but called on the company to do more. “We were glad to share our expertise on this and look forward to continuing to provide input,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL’s CEO and national director, said in a statement. “While this is an important step forward, this move alone is insufficient and must be followed by many more changes from YouTube and other tech companies to adequately counter the scourge of online hate and extremism.” Now playing: Watch this: What Facebook and Google say they’re doing to combat… Google Alphabet Inc. Tags Tech Industry 21 YouTube is axing videos that push extremist views or deny events like the Holocaust. Getty YouTube on Wednesday said it’s removing videos that push extremist views like white supremacy or deny events like the Holocaust or Sandy Hook shooting. The new policy is an attempt to crack down on hate speech on the Google-owned video service. The new rules prohibit any video “alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.”YouTube didn’t specifically say which channels or videos it’s removing. The company has drawn criticism for how it enforces its policies and its decision-making process when it comes to leaving up videos that some deem hateful.The update follows a controversy Tuesday evening, when YouTube refused to take down the channel of a prominent conservative personality named Stephen Crowder for using homophobic slurs against journalist Carlos Maza, a writer and video host at Vox. Maza, who is gay, created a supercut of Crowder calling him a “lispy sprite” and “little queer.”YouTube said Crowder’s videos didn’t violate the site’s rules. “Our teams spent the last few days conducting an in-depth review of the videos flagged to us, and while we found language that was clearly hurtful, the videos as posted don’t violate our policies,” the company said in a series of tweets Tuesday night. “Opinions can be deeply offensive, but if they don’t violate our policies, they’ll remain on our site.” Share your voice (2/4) Our teams spent the last few days conducting an in-depth review of the videos flagged to us, and while we found language that was clearly hurtful, the videos as posted don’t violate our policies.

Bacterial infection to blame in Kachemak otter dieoff

first_imgTests results are back on dead sea otters from Kachemak Bay. About 82 percent of them had streptococcus syndrome, according to biologists with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Download AudioA dead sea otter on the beach at the Homer Spit on December 22, 2015.Photo: Daysha Eaton/KBBI-Homer.Leslie Slater is a USFWS wildlife biologist at the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge in Homer.“So also in this stretch of beach, which has been under 200 yards or so that we’ve walked, we’ve come across now, looks like a yearling sea otter that’s died and a sub-adult male that’s died too,” said Slater.Along the black pebbled beach at the Homer Spit, we step closer to a frozen otter near the Lands End Hotel and condominiums.“So you can tell that it’s a sub-adult because of its size and the tooth wear is pretty minimal, it’s got very white teeth. And this one happened to freeze in shape so you can see that the skin is sort of draping against the rib cage and it looks to me like it probably did die of starvation. We’ll have to thaw it out and do a necropsy on it to see what really happened with this one,” said Slater.USFWS wildlife biologist Leslie Slater puts on latex gloves to handle the dead sea otter at the Homer Spit on Decmeber 22, 2015. Photo: Daysha Eaton/KBBI-Homer.Since summer, more than 300 otters have died around Kachemak Bay. Joel Garlich-Miller, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Marine Mammals Management office in Anchorage, says they’re still finding them.“Things have dropped off quite a bit but we’re still getting reports of three or four animals a week, primarily from Homer area beaches,” Garlich-Miller said.He added that test results recently confirmed that it was the streptococcus syndrome that killed the otters in most cases.“This is a syndrome caused by bacterial infection, streptococcal infection and it manifests itself in a variety of ways such as valvular endocarditis or septicemia or encephalitis. It looks like a pretty high percentage of the animals that we recovered this year, about 82 percent, appear to test positive for this syndrome,” said Garlich-Miller.Garlich-Miller says most of the otters appeared to have deteriorated rapidly and succumbed to encephalitis.The Fish and Wildlife Service has been tracking a streptococcus illness in Kachemak Bay area otters for some time. Otters with the illness usually appear sickly and emaciated. But many of the otters that have died since August appear healthier.Garlich-Miller says although strep syndrome appears to be the main cause of the deaths, there are hints that some could have had a virus as well. Garlich-Miller says biologists are now collecting more dead otters to test for viruses.Back at the beach, biologist Leslie Slater explains what you should do if you come across a dead otter.“It’s best to call the sightings into the marine mammal stranding hotline, whether they’re alive or dead, and then there is another group of folks in town who will come and evaluate the carcass to see if it will be forwarded on for further pathology studies,” said Slater.Biologists hope those studies will shed more light on whether viruses had anything to do with the huge number of sea otter deaths this year.Dead or dying sea otters and other marine mammals should be reported to the Alaska SeaLife Center’s Marine Mammal Stranding Network hotline at 888-774-SEAL (7325).last_img read more

ICC 2019 World Cup Lungi Ngidi ruled out of match against India

first_imgThe Proteas have been dubbed as ‘chokers’ for repeatedly failing to perform on the stage of major ICC tournaments. This time around, they were not looked upon as one of the favourites. The sudden retirement of AB de Villiers last year denied them the services of their most dynamic limited-overs player.However, the return to form of Hashim Amla in the practice match and the continuing success of Quinton de Kock gave the Proteas hope of producing a better effort this time than expected. Unfortunately for the Faf du Plessis-led team, while de Kock has failed to convert his good starts into big scores, Amla is yet to get an opportunity as he was forced to leave the field very early on in his innings.The bowlers have also disappointed by allowing both the teams they bowled to in the first two games to score over 300 runs. With Ngidi now also out of the third game of the tournament for Proteas, it’s an uphill task for them to stay in the hunt for the title. Ngidi won’t play against India due to injuryTwitter/ICCIf two losses in two matches are not bad enough, South Africa are now faced with another major problem. One of their key pacemen, Lungi Ngidi, has been declared unavailable for the team’s third match of the World Cup, against Indian on June 5.Ngidi suffered a hamstring problem during his team’s game match against Bangladesh at The Oval. This forced him to leave the field after having bowled just four overs in the game. South Africa were already plagued by injuries with Dale Steyn unable to play the first two matches and still not certain to take part in the fixture against India. On top of that, Hashim Amla suffered a blow to the head during the opening game of the tournament against England which caused him to retire hurt immediately and then sit out of the match against Bangladesh.Dangerous times for SAIf Steyn doesn’t recover and Amla too is unable to get back in the playing XI, South Africa’s campaign, already looking very unsteady, would be in danger of completely going off the rails.last_img read more

Nanoparticles pass through mucus membranes in lungs to deliver pulmonary drugs

first_img Play Movie of nanoparticles moving through mucus. Credit: Schneider et al. Sci. Adv. 2017;3:e1601556 The nanoparticles, the team notes, were created using biodegradable materials that prior research found safe for internal use. Testing in mice, they report, showed the particle carriers stayed in the lungs for several hours—they also proved to be more effective than conventional therapies at reducing asthma symptoms such as irritation. The researchers suggest that MPPs could offer a better treatment plan for lung patients by providing a therapy that maintains drug levels in the lungs for longer periods of time, reducing the need for repeated dosing, which itself can cause lung irritation.

Schneider et al. Nanoparticles that do not adhere to mucus provide uniform and long-lasting drug delivery to airways following inhalation, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1601556AbstractMucoadhesive particles (MAP) have been widely explored for pulmonary drug delivery because of their perceived benefits in improving particle residence in the lungs. However, retention of particles adhesively trapped in airway mucus may be limited by physiologic mucus clearance mechanisms. In contrast, particles that avoid mucoadhesion and have diameters smaller than mucus mesh spacings rapidly penetrate mucus layers [mucus-penetrating particles (MPP)], which we hypothesized would provide prolonged lung retention compared to MAP. We compared in vivo behaviors of variously sized, polystyrene-based MAP and MPP in the lungs following inhalation. MAP, regardless of particle size, were aggregated and poorly distributed throughout the airways, leading to rapid clearance from the lungs. Conversely, MPP as large as 300 nm exhibited uniform distribution and markedly enhanced retention compared to size-matched MAP. On the basis of these findings, we formulated biodegradable MPP (b-MPP) with an average diameter of <300 nm and examined their behavior following inhalation relative to similarly sized biodegradable MAP (b-MAP). Although b-MPP diffused rapidly through human airway mucus ex vivo, b-MAP did not. Rapid b-MPP movements in mucus ex vivo correlated to a more uniform distribution within the airways and enhanced lung retention time as compared to b-MAP. Furthermore, inhalation of b-MPP loaded with dexamethasone sodium phosphate (DP) significantly reduced inflammation in a mouse model of acute lung inflammation compared to both carrier-free DP and DP-loaded MAP. These studies provide a careful head-to-head comparison of MAP versus MPP following inhalation and challenge a long-standing dogma that favored the use of MAP for pulmonary drug delivery.

Such conditions include asthma, in which bronchi spasm, making it difficult to breathe; cystic fibrosis, in which over-production of mucus leads to blocking of bronchi; and COPD, in which obstructions form in bronchial passages. Fortunately, these types of ailments are all treatable to some degree, though they cannot be cured. For that reason, scientists continue to look for ways to improve current therapies.Currently, lung ailments such as cystic fibrosis, COPD and asthma are treated with inhaled drugs such as corticosteroids that adhere to the walls of air passages. In some instances, they are carried by what are known as mucoadhesive particles, (MAPs), but, as the researchers note, thick mucus often builds up on such passageways, lessening the effectiveness of the delivery system. In this new effort, the researchers took a different approach—rather than trying to make medicines that adhere do their job better, they turned to nanoparticles that are small enough to make their way through mucus membranes to the lining of the lungs themselves, offering direct medication application to affected areas. Called mucus-penetrating particles (MPP), they remain in the lungs, releasing medication for an extended period of time.

Why Everyone Can Use Randi Zuckerbergs Number One Focus Tip

first_imgApril 13, 2017 Editor’s Note: Entrepreneur’s “20 Questions” series features both established and up-and-coming entrepreneurs and asks them a number of questions about what makes them tick, their everyday success strategies and advice for aspiring founders.In the intense world of Silicon Valley, your stock rise and falls by the state of your startup. And for those founders who don’t make it their number one focus, they are often judged harshly.That is something Randi Zuckerberg learned first hand, first as the head of marketing at Facebook during the social media giant’s early years, and then as the CEO and founder of her own marketing firm, Zuckerberg Media.“What is life without being a three dimensional person? It’s so boring,” she says of the people who believe a startup should be the only thing on your plate. “How can you tell someone to put away the things they are passionate about?”In addition to running Zuckerberg Media, she is a speaker, radio host on SiriusXM and the author of bestselling business and children’s books — Dot Complicated and Missy President.She is also a lifelong student of technology and explores how it has impacted our lives through her 5-year-old online community, which is also called Dot Complicated. And in 2014, she achieved her childhood dream of making her Broadway debut.We caught up with Zuckerberg and asked her 20 Questions to see what makes her tick.1. How do you start your day?I start my day with a little bit of a cheesy mantra that I’ve been using for about 10 years. It says, “work, sleep, fitness, family, friends — pick three.” There is a lot of pressure, especially on women, to do everything well, every single day. I like to give myself permission to do three things really well each day, and it can be a different three tomorrow, as long as it all balances out in the long run.2. How do you end your day?In my ideal mind, I want to do something relaxing, like meditation or yoga. In reality, I’m in bed on social media, on my laptop and on my phone all at the same time. That’s an area of my life that I’m actively trying to work towards. I know that sleep and relaxation is so important, but I would consider myself a work in progress when it comes to the end of the day habits.3. What’s a book that changed your mind and why?Me, Myself and Us by Dr. Brian Little. I struggled for a long time because I’m really an introvert, but I have to act extrovertedly, because I’m giving speeches or meeting with entrepreneurs. I felt very alone in the world and then Dr. Little came out with this book about being pseudo extrovert, and it was all about introverts that have to pretend to be extroverts for their business lives.It totally changed my life and opened up a whole world of thinking for me. The book said if you go out there and have to act extraverted, don’t forget you’re an introvert at the core, which means you’re going to need to build in downtime to your schedule, otherwise you’re going to burn out. We don’t run on the same kind of social energy that extroverts do. So I know that if I have a day where I am on camera or giving a talk, I’ll actually build “do not schedule” blocks of time into my calendar. That’s not something I would have done before his book, but it’s something that’s really effective in my business and personal life4. What’s a book you always recommend and why?Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes. It’s an awesome book. She’s an incredible woman and I think that we can all get out of our comfort zone a little more.5. What’s a strategy to keep focused?I like to carve out blocks of time that I’m going to be unplugged, which is sometimes frustrating to the rest of my team. But I find that it’s hard to do creative, thoughtful tasks when you are interrupted by emails and text messages. I like to carve out two to three hours, where I do a deep dive into writing a piece or working on a speech. That is the most effective hours of my entire day.Related: This Founder Shares the Mindset That Helps Her Stay On Track6. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?For a while, I wanted to be a mermaid, but apparently that was not a tangible goal. I really wanted to sing on Broadway. That was my big goal my entire life. I eventually gave it up to go into something reasonable, like technology and entrepreneurship.7. What did you learn from the worst boss you ever had?I learned about how to treat people, but I also learned that is is better to give people feedback in the moment. Early in my career, I had these bosses that would check in with me every six months — and tell me for last six months that I’ve been doing x, y and z and that’s not good. I’d sit there thinking, “Why didn’t you tell me six months ago, so that I wasn’t just making the same mistakes?” That impacted my own management style, because I always want to give feedback in the moment.8. Who has influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work?I’m so lucky to have a great mentor in Kathleen Kennedy, who is the president of LucasFilm. She’s given me great advice on what happens when you’re the only woman in the room, and how to find mentorship and peer guidance around you even if you have to look in other industries.We’ve definitely spoken about the fact that sometimes your best mentors are right around you, and you don’t even know. A lot of times we look for someone high above us to be a mentor, but often peer-mentor groups are actually going to be the most effective and helpful.9. What’s a trip that changed you?About a year ago, I traveled to Kuwait. I spoke at one of the first women in business conferences they had in the entire country. It really opened my eyes and challenged my viewpoint. I met some wonderful entrepreneurs that I’m still in touch with on social media. I feel really grateful for that opportunity, and it made me realize that I need to take more trips like that to get out of my own bubble and to expand my view of entrepreneurship in different regions in the world.10. What inspires you?Definitely art, theater, culture. Anytime that I want to feel inspired I go to the theater. I spent so much time in my life building platforms, and it’s easy for techies to forget that platforms are nothing without art to go on them.Related: The Co-Founder of Gilt on What Her First Job at Ebay Taught Her About Running a Company11. What was your first business idea and what did you do with it?A snow-shoveling subscription service when I was in middle school. I grew up in New York, and I was making a little bit of pocket money shoveling our own walkway. I then thought, what if I went door to door and say, here’s my price for today, or you could pre-order for the entire season. If it snows a lot you’ll get a good deal, but it if it doesn’t, that’s the risk you take. I had a few houses our block that took me up on it, mostly because the cute neighborhood kid had an idea, but now I see all the subscription services out there, and I think I was a little ahead of my time.12. What was an early job that taught you something important or useful?My dad is a semi-professional bridge player, and from a very young age, I used to be an assistant at the bridge club. It was fun, except it gets really stressful during certain times of the match when everyone needs to say their scores at the same time and pretty much every person raises their hand and calls for the caddy, and you have to run like a frantic animal collecting scores. Very early on it taught me about time management, how to deal with difficult and impatient people and how to pace myself and enjoy the downtime between the craziness..13. What’s the best advice you ever took?Someone once told me, when we were talking about how easy it is to Google yourself and go on social media and see what they are saying about you, they said to me, “you know what Randi, you’re never as good as they say you are, and you’re never as bad as they say you are. You can’t let it get to your head or your heart.”14. What’s the worst piece of advice you ever got?Someone once told me to be less interesting. I think they meant it in a constructive way, because in Silicon Valley there is a culture that you have to be 24/7 invested in your startup, otherwise you’re not taken seriously. It’s a very “all in” culture, especially if you’re a woman. People already expect you to be distracted by your family, so you need to go even more down that road to show you’re all in.I always loved theater and art, so I got some advice to be less interesting, because they felt like people might think I was distracted if they knew I also had an interest in theater. It took me a few years to realize that was probably the worst piece of advice I had ever been given. 15. What’s a productivity tip you swear by?I swear by Evernote and note-taking apps. I’m constantly writing notes to myself and sharing them with my team and my husband. With email I respond either instantly or never. If I’m sitting there I can respond right away, but if I walk away, I get buried by a hundred more emails that come in. I wouldn’t be able to function without it.Related: This Founder Shares the Secret to How to Make Your Business Last16. Is there an app or tool you use in a surprising way to get things done or stay on track?It’s old school, but I set a lot of alarms during the day, like for when when I want to be done with something. Sometimes I follow them, sometimes I don’t, but it does bring mindfulness into my day.17. What does work-life balance mean to you?To me, it’s a long-term goal. A lot of people put pressure on themselves to make it a short-term, everyday goal. I like to give myself permission to be lopsided on a given day.18. How do you prevent burnout?I have two toddlers, and I’m on the road over 100 days a year for work. It’s really easy to put yourself last. I found that I was always thinking about work and then rushing to be home for my family. So self care was at the bottom of my priority list. If you don’t carve out time for yourself, you’re not going to be good to anyone else in your life.Now I block out those do not schedule chunks. I’m the only one that is going to create those boundaries for myself and my time, not anyone else. I would definitely encourage more entrepreneurs to not feel bad or guilty about doing things like that.19. When you’re faced with a creativity block, what’s your strategy to get innovating?I just try to force myself to sit and write — even if what I write is nonsense, and I end up throwing it out. Creativity and writing is a muscle, and you need to discipline yourself to actually sit and write ideally at the same time every day to get used to it. Before you know it, if you keep going, you’re going to write something. I was able to write my whole business book in less than a month, because I decided that I was going to write four to six hours every day.20. What are you learning now? For me, I even see social media and technology as constant education. The tech is changing so quickly for someone like me. If I didn’t constantly work to keep educating myself, I wouldn’t even be hired as a junior social-media manager today.  I’m constantly in a state learning, researching what’s going on, what the innovations are, what the social media platforms are doing. There is not day that goes by that I don’t try to educate myself in tech.
