Bats May Be Carrying the Next SARS PandemicThe SARS virus appeared suddenly in 2002 and within 1 year spread to 33 countries, sickening more than 8000 people and killing more than 700. Now, researchers say, they have found that bats in China are carrying a closely related virus—one that can directly infect human cells and could potentially cause the next global pandemic.New Experiment Torpedoes Lightweight Dark Matter ParticlesSign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)It’s not the result physicists were hoping for, but the first data from LUX, the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world, show no signs of the lightweight dark matter particles hinted at by other experiments.

Most published research on sports-related concussions has been conducted in adults, and IOM says it’s dangerous to assume that these findings can be mapped onto children because of the changes that occur during brain development.Cleaning Up Ancient Human DNAGleaning the entire genetic code of ancient humans is pretty hard. Old human remains are usually riddled with bacteria, and separating out the human DNA from bug DNA is a costly process. Now, researchers say they’ve come up with RNA probes that filter out human DNA quickly and cheaply, meaning we can learn a lot more about our ancient relatives. The new method might also come in handy for modern-day forensic scientists dealing with bacteria-tainted DNA samples.Did Snakes Help Build the Primate Brain?A new study of the monkey brain suggests that primates are uniquely adapted to recognize snakes and react in a flash. The results lend support to a controversial hypothesis: that primates as we know them would never have evolved without sneaky, slithering snakes.

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday issued a warning to insurance companies that have delayed financial aid to farmers whose crops had been destroyed by post-monsoon rain, while exhorting farmers to fight the crisis instead of despairing.“Do not worry… I know the addresses of these insurance companies,” said Mr. Thackeray, who was on a day-long tour of three districts in Marathwada to interact with farmers and survey the ravaged cropland in the region.The Sena chief was accosted everywhere by despondent and frustrated farmers, several of whom complained of not having received even the loan waiver promised by the government during the drought earlier this year.“This is a major crisis. I appeal to all of you not to despair. The Sena is resolutely behind you all,” he said, while remarking to farmers, “This is not the time to shed tears but to combat the crisis.”This was the Sena’s chief second visit to the region in less than three days. He had toured parts of Aurangabad district on Sunday.“I could have been sitting pretty in Mumbai and playing politics. But I returned to Marathwada as I care about the farmers,” Mr. Thackeray said, trying to assuage disconsolate farmers in Nanded, Parbhani, Latur and Beed districts.In June, Mr. Thackeray had similarly warned that his party workers would not hesitate to “straighten” insurance companies and banks denying financial aid to drought-hit farmers in Marathwada. The Sena chief, who surveyed a number of rain-hit villages, refused to answer any questions on the impasse over government formation. While his party is in a game of brinkmanship with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), thus delaying the government formation process, Mr. Thackeray is projecting himself as being above petty wrangling for power.At a village in Kandhar in Nanded, when a tearful farmer related his condition, Mr. Thackeray, Sena ministers and assembled officials repeatedly reassured him of immediate help.In yet another incident, two minor girls, ostensibly daughters of farmers, went up to the Sena chief and presented him with a ‘bouquet’ of the rotting soybean crop, appealing to him for immediate help.Mr. Thackeray directed party workers to make provisions for fodder and set up help centres at the taluka level to facilitate disbursement of insurance aid.During his visit to Aurangabad, Mr. Thackeray had dubbed the ₹10,000-crore relief package for farmers announced by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis “grossly inadequate” and demanded that the government provide compensation of ₹25,000 per hectare to farmers without any conditions.

Jose Mourinho has dropped hints to his future plans, revealing that he sees himself becoming the manager of a national team rather than another club.The former Manchester United boss has been out of coaching work since being sacked by the Red Devils in December 2018 and has recently appeared as a pundit for broadcaster beIN SPORTS.In an interview broadcast by Eleven Sports however, the 56-year-old revealed he still has the desire to take on new challenges in the world of management. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? “I want to compete in new competitions,” he said.“I think about the World Cup and the European Championships.“For a long time I have had the desire to try out such an adventure. Right now, I see myself more at a national team than with a new club.“Is Portugal the right team for me? Not necessarily.”The self-proclaimed ‘special one’ has enjoyed a glittering career in club management since lifting his first league title with Porto in 2003 – a year before the Primeira Liga side won the UEFA Champions League.Mourinho would go on to lift the Champions League once more with Inter in 2010, but not before winning consecutive Premier League titles with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006, as well as four domestic trophies.He added his fourth league title in as many countries with Real Madrid in 2012, and although his spell at Manchester United may not have gone as planned, there is no question that there is little left for him to achieve in club management.The 56-year-old did not rule out a return to club football when speaking earlier in June however, telling Eleven Sports: “Winning a fifth championship in a different country or the Champions League with a third club are things I’d like to do.“I wouldn’t do it just for that. I only go where a project convinces me.”I want to be happy, not necessarily win, I want to be happy and I don’t want to accept a proposal without being convinced of it, that’s what I’ve always thought.“That’s why if [a club] told me ‘today there are no conditions to win, but we want you to create the conditions to win’, then I would evaluate it.”

The international community must urgently increase education funding for Syrian refugees to avoid a lost generation resulting from the country’s civil war, education activist Malala Yousafzai said on Monday (July 13).Malala visits Azraq refugee campCredit/Copyright: UNHCR/C HerwigThe Nobel Peace Prize winner was on the second day of a visit to meet Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and Jordan that coincided with her 18th birthday.“Education is a basic human right for every child. Being a refugee should not be used as an excuse for saying that we cannot afford this child’s education,” Malala told a news conference in Azraq camp, which is currently host to more than 20,000 Syrian refugees.“There are rich countries in this world who can afford to spend money on weapons, who can afford to spend money on the war in Syria, but when it comes to education most of them have been quite stingy,” she said.During her visit to Azraq, Malala announced a $ 250,000 grant from her non-profit Malala Fund to provide tutoring and academic support for adolescent girls in the camp. The funding will be provided jointly to UNHCR and UNICEF, and among other initiatives will help young refugees prepare for their university entrance exams.Malala also visited the shelter of 16-year-old Syrian refugee Muzon, herself a vocal advocate for education within the camp, particularly among young girls.Read more here.Source:UNHCR
Kenney has promised to fight Bill C-69 in court. He will also go to court to try to stop the federal government from imposing a carbon tax on Alberta once his UCP follows through next month on its promise to repeal the Alberta-made carbon levy.Kenney, a former federal cabinet minister under Stephen Harper, has said the mere existence of Trudeau in power threatens Alberta’s economic prospects and has said he will do whatever he can to see Trudeau defeated in the fall election.The fight is also personal. Almost a year ago, Kenney, in a newspaper interview, dismissed Trudeau as a dilettante and a lightweight.“I know Justin. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger bowl,” Kenney said at the time. Kenney said Wednesday that the plan, for now, is to be positive.“We will begin with the path of diplomacy and try to find common ground,” he said.“We hope that we don’t need to use more forceful measures to assert Alberta’s vital economic interests.”Kenney also won the election on a promise to be more forceful with other provinces, saying that Albertans feel its neighbours are happy to share in the bounty of Alberta’s oil wealth while opposing measures like pipelines to help it grow.In Quebec, Premier Francois Legault congratulated Kenney on his electoral victory Wednesday but said all parties in Quebec’s legislature still oppose any new oil pipelines.Kenney said he also wants to start on a positive note with Legault, but added: “We don’t think it’s reasonable for other provinces, like Quebec, to take our equalization money while opposing pipeline projects that can help us pay the bills.”Kenney has said that the first day of his government will see him proclaim into law a bill passed by Notley’s legislature allowing Alberta to reduce oil flows to B.C. if B.C. continues to thwart the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline to take more Alberta oil to the West Coast.He said he plans to recall the legislature in the third week of May. Kenney said he and Trudeau will try to meet shortly after Kenney and his new United Conservative government are sworn in on April 30.It was a much anticipated conversation, given that Kenney successfully leveraged voter dissatisfaction with Trudeau in Alberta’s election, painting NDP Premier Rachel Notley as a weak enabler of federal energy policies he says are undermining its oil and gas sector.On Tuesday, Kenney’s United Conservatives won a strong majority government over Notley’s NDP, reducing core NDP support to mainly the city of Edmonton.Kenney and Notley have attacked the federal Liberals on proposed legislation, including a tanker ban on the northern B.C. coast and Bill C-69.Bill C-69, now before the Senate, creates new approval rules for energy projects, which Kenney calls an unconstitutional power grab on areas of provincial authority.The Kenney-Trudeau nexus is expected to play a pivotal role as the UCP work to implement its core campaign promise to create more jobs and grow the oil and gas sector. EDMONTON, A.B. – Jason Kenney, Alberta’s incoming premier, said he cordially talked pipelines Wednesday with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau _ Kenney’s political nemesis and his election campaign pinata _ and said the plan is to meet soon for a one-on-one.“He called to offer his congratulations. We spoke for about 15 minutes,” Kenney said outside Alberta’s legislature building.“We had a respectful conversation about a number of issues, including the need to get Canadian energy to foreign markets.”
New Delhi: Continuing with its country-wide raids, the Income Tax department late on Tuesday night raided premises of sitting TDP MP Galla Jayadev’s accountant and auditor in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, officials said here on Wednesday.Gurappa Naidu is the auditor and accountant of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MP Galla Jayadev, who is the Managing Director of Amara Raja Group, the parent company of Hyderabad-based Amaron Batteries. Speaking to the Millennium Post, officials in the Central Board of Direct Taxes said that during the raids IT-officers recovered around Rs 45 lakh in cash. However, according to preliminary reports, IT sleuths are not sure whether the cash is unaccounted for or not. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Sources here, however, said the raiding officers are fairly certain about the money being used for expenses related to electioneering in the constituency that is to go to polls on Thursday (April 11). Following the raids, Galla, who is contesting in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as well, organised a protest with fellow TDP workers at Pattabhipuram in Guntur and marched to the collector’s office. At the protest, the Guntur MP was quoted in the media as saying, “Our person has been detained & we don’t know his whereabouts, I am demanding an explanation. Why are we being targeted, why are raids being conducted only on TDP leaders.” Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KHowever, IT authorities categorically denied that the raids were related to any kind of political pressure. They said, “TDP candidate Galla Jayadev was not covered even remotely.” Galla was a parliamentarian who had moved the no-confidence motion against the PM-Modi led government last year and he has been a vocal critic of NDA over the issue of special status for Andhra Pradesh. In addition to Galla’s aide being raided, IT sleuths raided premises of Mydukur TDP candidate Putta Sudhakar Yadav on April 3. Two other TDP candidates namely Ugra Narasimha Reddy and Kovelamudi Ravindra were also put under the law enforcement agency’s scanner recently.

Yet while the marriage of Lady Gabriella Windsor and financier Thomas Kingston marked the third royal wedding in the space of a year, it was a comparably low key, and thoroughly family affair in Windsor. At a glance, it bore all the trappings of its two high-profile predecessors, with the same glorious setting, the familiar English traditions, and a number of guests who must have felt a slight sense of déjà vu. Returning to St George’s Chapel on the eve of his first wedding anniversary, the Duke of Sussex was part of an impressive contingent of senior royals, led by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, who joined guests in waving off the beaming bride and her new husband.

Comment Tulips are getting trampled. NurPhoto/Getty The perfect selfie is coming at a cost for Dutch tulip farmers. Selfie takers are causing thousands of euros in damage to tulip farms in the Netherlands, CNN reported last week. “Last year I had one field and there were 200 people in the field,” a grower named Simon Pennings told CNN, saying people, particularly younger folks, are in the fields all day.The Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions told CNN it thinks Instagram is sparking the trend. Share your voice 1 Tags It’s become enough of a problem that the Netherlands launched a campaign about it in April. The campaign includes a YouTube video and a website with information on where it’s OK to take tulip selfies (hint: don’t actually walk into the flower fields unless you’re visiting one where that’s allowed).Otherwise, as the video notes, you’re literally stomping on Dutch pride.

Justin Bieber and Hailey BaldwinJustin Bieber Official Instagram (justinbieber)Justin Bieber seems to have landed in some hot water. The singer has been accused of degrading women. Reportedly, Justin Bieber was put on blast by his former choreographer. In a long and scathing social media post, Emma Portner, a dancer and choreographer who worked on Bieber’s last tour, accused the star of ‘degrading women’ and severely underpaying her.The indictment of Justin Bieber comes on the heels of his involvement in a public and bitter feud between his longtime manager Scooter Braun and Taylor Swift. However, Emma later went on to delete the post in which she had laid out the accusations. She tagged Justin’s official handle, and implored him to ‘stop degrading women.’ We have to say that these are some pretty serious allegations against Justin Bieber. ‘@justinbieber I regret working under your name. I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time, and effort. Twice. For content that you made millions off of,’ she began in the post. ‘While I made zilch. Natta. Barely anything. Less than minimum wage for the hours I invested. I couldn’t afford to eat.’ Portner went on to explain her sorry plight where she was reduced to sweeping floors to make ends meet. Justin Bieber and Hailey BaldwinGetty ImagesEmma went on to make inflammatory accusations against Justin Bieber, claiming that the way he degraded women was an abomination. Reportedly, Emma partnered with the What Do You Mean? singer for his 2016 Purpose World Tour. Justin incidentally canceled the tour midway through citing mental health issues. Emma went on, saying that Justin Bieber hired a lesbian to work with him, even though the Church he works with discriminates against the LGBTQ+ community. Justin Bieber has not yet commented on Emma Portner’s post. You can chelc outrt the pist here: Emma PortnerEmma Portner Instagram
News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more January 9, 2018 – Women prefer to get their mammograms every year, instead of every two years, according to a new study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.“Women understand that yearly mammograms have been shown to save lives and do not consider previously reported ‘harms’ to be as important as getting screened,” said study author Ghizlane Bouzghar, M.D., chief radiology resident at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia.For years, the standard recommendation among most medical groups was that women at average risk of breast cancer undergo screening mammography annually beginning at age 40.However, in 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a controversial recommendation that women at average risk be screened biennially, or every two years, beginning at age 50. This recommendation, reaffirmed in 2016, was based in part on the “harms” associated with screening mammography.These harms, as defined by the USPSTF, include diagnosis and treatment of noninvasive and invasive breast cancers that would otherwise not have become a threat to a woman’s health and the unnecessary biopsies and associated anxieties resulting from false-positive results.Others argue that while reducing over-diagnosis and false positives are a priority, the benefits of early detection far outweigh the negative factors associated with the perceived harms. Absent from the debate has been one notable opinion: that of the women being screened.“The USPSTF associates annual screening mammography with ‘harm’ and recommends biennial screening mammography instead,” Bouzghar said. “However, there is no study to date that looked at women’s preference regarding annual versus biennial screening mammography, and whether women think that biennial screening causes less, equal or more anxiety.”Bouzghar and colleagues at Einstein set out to determine whether women preferred annual or biennial screening and to investigate whether or not reported harms of mammography influenced this preference.The research team surveyed 731 women (mean age 59) undergoing screening and diagnostic mammograms at Einstein from December 2016 to February 2017. Women were asked whether an abnormal mammogram or breast biopsy causes emotional harm, whether screening every two years was associated with less or more anxiety, and whether they preferred to have a screening mammogram every other year or every year.Variables such as the patient’s age, race, family and personal history of breast cancer, prior biopsies and abnormal mammograms, and underlying anxiety disorder were also included.Of the women surveyed, 71 percent preferred getting screened every year. A family history of breast cancer and prior breast biopsy were the only two variables to have an additional positive influence on annual screening preference.“Many women are much better educated about the value of screening mammography than they are given credit for,” Bouzghar said. “I also think that some of the USPSTF’s concerns about the ‘harms’ were somewhat paternalistic, and in 2017 women are more empowered about many things, including their healthcare.”Co-authors on the study are Debra S.
