US gambling operators have 90 days to comply with new rules

first_imgLAS VEGAS — The Department of Justice will wait 90 days to implement a legal opinion that will affect online gambling.Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Tuesday issued a memo saying the delay will allow businesses to adjust their operations.The legal opinion that became public Monday says a federal law that prohibits interstate wagering applies to any form of gambling that crosses state lines, not just sports betting.It is a reversal for the department, which in 2011 determined that online gambling within states that does not involve sporting events would not violate the federal Wire Act.Legal experts say casino operators and online lotteries will likely take the issue to court.Becky Harris is the chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. The gambling regulator says the agency is carefully reviewing the opinion.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Iran Government takes hard line on supporters of rights of women UN

27 November 2008Two independent United Nations experts on human rights issues today voiced deep concern over the Iranian Government’s increasingly severe crackdown on advocates of the rights of women in recent years. Defenders of the rights of women are facing a progressively difficult situation, including harassment and intimidation in the course of their non-violent activities, the two UN Special Rapporteurs said in a joint statement.“Peaceful demonstrators have been arrested, detained and persecuted with prison sentences having been imposed on many of them,” said Margaret Sekaggya, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders and Yakin Ertürk, Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences.Men and women involved in the One Million Signatures Demanding Changes to Discriminatory Laws campaign have been particularly targeted, according to the two experts.The campaigners aim to collect one million signatures from Iranians demanding the revision and reform of current laws which discriminate against women, such as those regulating marriage practices, divorce, criminal acts, and inheritance rights.“To date, 18 communications have been sent to the Iranian authorities concerning violations committed against over 70 human rights defenders involved in the campaign, and on 5 April 2007 a press release was issued on the situation,” said Ms. Sekaggya and Ms. Ertürk.“Until now, we have received only three responses from the Government,” they added.In their joint statement, the Rapporteurs urged the Government “to abide by its obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women, and respect the rights of women’s rights activists to freedom of association and peaceful assembly, and to freedom of opinion and expression”. read more

UN official projects Headquarters renovation will finish within budget

Michael Adlerstein, the Executive Director of the Capital Master Plan (CMP), told a news conference that there are now financial commitments for the CMP totalling approximately $1.5 billion, representing over 75 per cent of the project. “The procurement of the project is progressing well,” he stated, adding that the projected cost overrun of the CMP has been reduced from being 10 per cent over budget during the first year of the project to now less than 4 per cent over budget. In 2007, the projected cost to complete the CMP was $219 million over the approved budget of $1.87 billion. Now, it is down to $80 million over budget, he said. Mr. Adlerstein also told reporters that significant progress has been made during the project’s second year of construction. This includes fitting out swing spaces in several leased buildings, completing the construction of the North Lawn Building and relocating several thousand staff to off-site and on-site swing spaces. Consistent with original projections, he said it is expected that the reoccupation of the Secretariat Building will start with the return of staff in mid-2012, completing the return to the Secretariat within 2012. When completed, the landmark 39-storey building towering over the East River and First Avenue in Manhattan will possess the 21st-century trappings of eco-friendly energy conservation, and its now dulled glass façade will be replaced with a new glass curtain resplendent with the same bluish-green tint as in its first incarnation in 1952. “We project a 50 per cent reduction in energy consumption, as compared to pre-CMP conditions,” said Mr. Adlerstein. “Our greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 45 per cent, and our water consumption will be reduced by 40 per cent.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pledged two years ago to make the UN complex “a model of environmental stewardship” by reducing electricity and water usage, and by removing harmful materials that were used in the original construction. Speaking at the opening today of the new energy-efficient UN office complex in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, Mr. Ban said the world body is aiming to make its Headquarters complex in New York one of the cleanest, greenest buildings in the world. He lauded the new complex in Nairobi – with its 6,000 square metres of solar panels and a host of other environmentally-friendly features – as a “model for green architecture in Africa and beyond” and said he hoped all UN offices will reach the very high bar set by those in Nairobi. 31 March 2011Nearly three years into the major renovation of the United Nations Headquarters complex in New York, the project is on track to being completed within its almost $2 billion budget, the official overseeing the overhaul said today. read more

El Niño set to have a devastating impact on southern Africas harvests

Figure 1: Figure 2: Southern Africa is currently in the grip of a drought that has expanded and strengthened since the earliest stages of the 2015-2016 agricultural season, driven by one of the strongest El Niño events of the last 50 years, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said today in a joint statement with the World Food Programme (WFP), Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET), and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC). Across large swathes of Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana, and Madagascar, the current rainfall season has so far been the driest in the last 35 years. Agricultural areas in northern Namibia and southern Angola have also experienced high levels of water deficit. Much of the southern African sub-region has consequently experienced significant delays in planting and very poor conditions for early crop development and pasture re-growth. In many areas, planting has not been possible due to 30 to 50 day delays in the onset of seasonal rains resulting in widespread crop failure, according to the agencies. Although there has been some relief since mid-January in certain areas, the agencies warn that the window of opportunity for the successful planting of crops under rain-fed conditions is nearly closed. Even assuming normal rainfall for the remainder of the season, cropwater balance models indicate poor performance of maize over a widespread area. Seasonal forecasts from a variety of sources are unanimous in predicting a continuation of below-average rainfall and above-average temperatures across most of the region for the remainder of the growing season, says the statement. The combination of a poor 2014-2015 season, an extremely dry early season (October to December) and forecasts for continuing hot and drier-than-average conditions through mid-2016, suggest a scenario of extensive, regional-scale crop failure. Drought emergencies have been declared in most of South Africa’s provinces as well as in Zimbabwe and Lesotho. Water authorities in Botswana, Swaziland, South Africa and Namibia are limiting water usage because of low water levels. Power outages have been occurring in Zambia and Zimbabwe as water levels at the Kariba Dam have become much lower than usual. While it is too early to provide detailed estimates of the population likely to be food-insecure in 2016-2017, FAO and its partners say it is expected that the population in need of emergency food assistance and livelihood recovery support will increase significantly. Additional assistance will be required to help food-insecure households manage an extended 2016 lean season. In the short term, the agencies recommend: continued close monitoring of the season to inform decision-making on programming and targeting; immediate additional assistance to help currently food-insecure households; updating of contingency plans, intensification of advocacy and resource mobilization to address the impact of an extended post-2016 harvest lean season; and increased awareness-raising of the need for a regional approach to address the effects of drought that are becoming more frequent and intense. read more

Peugeot owner PSA to buy Opel Vauxhall brands from General Motors

first_imgA Peugeot car is pictured at the Opel plant in Bochum October 22, 2012ReutersGroupe PSA, parent of Peugeot, Citroen and DS Automobiles car brands is reportedly in talks with American automobile giant General Motors for buying out latter’s European business. In a deal that could have significant implications for the European automotive industry, PSA will buy out Opel brand which also owns the Vauxhall brand in the UK.Also read: Peugeot to re-enter India with CK Birla Group; to use Hindustan Motors plant in Chennai”PSA confirms that it is exploring a number of strategic initiatives with GM with the aim of increasing its profitability and operating efficiency, including a potential acquisition of Opel,” company spokesman Bertrand Blaise said, BBC reported.If the deal gets through, PSA would overtake Renault to become the second-largest European carmaker, after Volkswagen. General Motors has not released an official statement on the new development. PSA previously confirmed it was in talks with General Motors but indicates its dealings with Opel and Vauxhall have recently centered on the possible expansion of current projects. This include: launching various models between the two car makers share common platforms and drivelines.While an agreement could be reached in the coming weeks, PSA shares rose 4.9 per cent to 18.81 euro at 1:04 pm GM, which has controlled Opel for nearly 90 years, has been active in recent years for a co-operation with Peugeot in order to cut costs and improve profitability at Opel and Vauxhall. PSA and GM signed an agreement in 2013 in Europe that involved former taking a seven per cent stake in PSA. But it was not as successful as envisaged.Sale of Opel, Vauxhall brands will not be a loss for GM. The company has reported a loss of $257m from its European operations last year. It is the sixteenth consecutive loss-making year for GM in Europe. Hence it is logical to do away with the loss-making brands.last_img read more

Lightning strikes kill 126 in two months

first_imgLightning strikeAt least 126 people were killed by lightning strikes across Bangladesh in May and June this year, according to data compiled by a non-government organisation, reports UNB.The organisation, Save the Society and Thunderstorm Awareness Forum, said it gathered the data from at least 10 local and national newspapers, some online portals and televisions.The victims include 21 women, seven children and 98 men, said the organisation in a statement on Saturday.Most of them were killed while fishing or bringing cattle back home from the field. Some of the victims died while sleeping in houses made of corrugated tin-sheet, and standing under trees.Fifty-three people were also injured in lightning strikes during this period.Sixteen of the deaths were reported in Kishoreganj, three in Habiganj, 10 in Rajshahi, nine in Chapainawabganj, six in Pabna, seven in Dinajpur, four in Nilphamari, four each in Jamalpur and Sherpur, six in Naogaon, five in Sirajganj, three in Moulvibazar, four in Khulna, 11 in Satkhira, and four were killed in Tangail.The organisation highlighted some reasons for the increase in lightning strikes such as climate change, decreasing number of tall trees, installation of a large number of mobile phone towers, and global warming.It said a rising temperature will also lead to a higher number of lightning strikes.What to do when lightning strikesContrary to a popular belief, lightning can strike the same place more than once. The common advice is to remain indoors and find a safe and enclosed shelter when thunder roars.When dark clouds gather, people should avoid staying in open space or rooftops. People are advised not to stand beside windows.If there is no available shelter, then people should crouch low, with as little of the body touching the ground as possible. Lightning causes electric currents along the top of the ground that can be deadly over 100 feet away, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The CDC suggests staying away from concrete floors or walls as lightning can travel through any metal wires or bars in concrete walls or flooring.One should remember that staying at home does not guarantee protection from lightning. In fact, about one-third of lightning strike injuries occur indoors, the CDC said.Also, remember that staying in a car is not as safe as staying inside a building but it is a safer than staying in the open.Lightning can travel through electrical systems and radio and television reception systems and hence, avoiding all types of electronic equipment is advised.Lightning can travel through plumbing, too, and it is unsafe to stay in pond or water bodies while thunderbolt occurs.The organisation also suggests to plant palm trees or other tall ones to reduce the casualties and damage.And if anyone is struck by lightning, the person should be treated like an electric shock victim.last_img read more

New mitochondriallyderived peptides show what they can do

first_img © 2015 Phys.org More information: The Mitochondrial-Derived Peptide MOTS-c Promotes Metabolic Homeostasis and Reduces Obesity and Insulin Resistance, Cell Metabolism, www.cell.com/article/S1550-413 … (15)00061-3/abstractAbstractMitochondria are known to be functional organelles, but their role as a signaling unit is increasingly being appreciated. The identification of a short open reading frame (sORF) in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) that encodes a signaling peptide, humanin, suggests the possible existence of additional sORFs in the mtDNA. Here we report a sORF within the mitochondrial 12S rRNA encoding a 16-amino-acid peptide named MOTS-c (mitochondrial open reading frame of the 12S rRNA-c) that regulates insulin sensitivity and metabolic homeostasis. Its primary target organ appears to be the skeletal muscle, and its cellular actions inhibit the folate cycle and its tethered de novo purine biosynthesis, leading to AMPK activation. MOTS-c treatment in mice prevented age-dependent and high-fat-diet-induced insulin resistance, as well as diet-induced obesity. These results suggest that mitochondria may actively regulate metabolic homeostasis at the cellular and organismal level via peptides encoded within their genome. (Phys.org)—There is a whole lot more to the textbook mitochondrial genome then once was thought. A case in point is a multifunctional peptide named humanin that is dual-encoded deep within 16S ribosomal RNA gene in the mtDNA. Pinchas Cohen’s lab was one of three labs that simultaneously co-discovered humanin when screening for proteins that may be involved in Alzheimer’s, IGF-1 signaling, and apoptosis. Cohen’s group just published a report in Cell Metabolism where they described another mitochondrially derived peptide, this time encoded within the 12S RNA-c gene, which has also has some useful properties. A mere 16 amino acids in length, they have demonstrated that this MOTS-c peptide as they call it (mitochondrial open reading frame of RNA-c) has dramatic effects on obesity and insulin resistance.

The content is provided for information purposes only. Journal information: Cell Metabolismcenter_img Before barreling ahead about the wonders of MOTS-c, we should probably say a bit more about humanin and mitochondrial translation in general. The final working length of humanin depends on where it was produced. If it was made inside the matrix using mitochondrial translation hardware its ends up being 21 amino acids long. If made outside mitochondria in the cytosol it will be 24 amino acids long. Both the tRNAs and rRNAs from mitochondria can end up getting transported into the cytosol, however, the mechanism and logic behind these processes is not yet understood. In a previous post we noted that there are similarities between some nuclear encoded tRNAs (like met-tRNA) and the analogous met-mt-tRNAs, and therefore asked what it would take for mitochondrial to utilize nuclear tRNAs, and similarly vice-versa. The authors recognized the possibility that short peptides, like MOTS-c in particular, might be of nuclear origin due to the well-known phenomenon of nuclear mtDNA transfer (NUMT). After doing so-called BLAST searches they were not able to find any putative NUMT-derived peptides with complete homology to MOTS-c, but a search using human expression sequence tags (EST) found several hits for homologous mRNA sequences to the mitochondrial 12S rRNA locus. This is a somewhat confusing state of affairs to say the least. Rats, for example, don’t have any NUMT sequences for MOTS-c, making mtDNA its exclusive source. For the case of humanin (which in rats the homologous peptide is called, as you may have anticipated, ‘rattin’ ), other research has turned up at least 10 nuclear-encoded ‘humanin-like’ peptides expressed in human tissues. For short length peptides it may be difficult to conclusively say that these are cases of mitochondrial transfer, ie NUMTs, or just sequence convergence effects.As for the question of where MOTS-c is made, its translation obligatorily occurs in the cytoplasm via the standard genetic code. This is because translation using the mitochondria-specific genetic code would yield tandem start and stop codons—hardly a useful message. The authors therefore reasonably suggest that the MOTS-c polyadenylated transcript is exported from the mitochondria. As for how MOTS-c is involved in obesity and diabetes, they point to altered gene expression of enzymes involved in the folate-methionine cycle and de novo purine synthesis. These results came from their microarray analysis and metabolomics profiling studies.The full complexity of the mtDNA code, now unravelling before us, reflects the unique genetic systems of the mitrochondrion’s bacterial ancestors. As we begin to comprehend the entire mitochondrial transcriptome, including its many small RNAs, we will be better equipped to evaluate potential fertilization outcome for issues like mitochondrial transfer in the creation of three parent embryos. Inclusive in any such discussion of effectively editing an entire mitochondrial genome in this blunt way would be consideration of the effects of new and contentious genome-editing techniques as they would be applied to mitohcondria themselves.When we raised the question above about the potential for internexed mito- and nuclear- translation, we also noted recent research on the historically deep multi-read sequences of ribosomal subunits themselves which keynotes aspects of overlapping RNA codes. Although not fully vetted, nor rejected, it may be worthwhile to take a deeper look into that particular ribosome model, where the ribosome itself is a microcosm encoding a complete set of tRNS and accessory proteins, to better understand the origins of the larger genetic system we possess.

Coop staff seek up to €200000 each in retirement pay

first_imgBank workers who opt for voluntary retirement from the Co-operative bank want anywhere between €100,000 to €200,000 according to a circular which emerged on Wednesday.The documented had been distributed by the bank workers’ union Etyk, a day earlier, to their members over Co-op’s sale to Hellenic Bank.Etyk discussed the matter with Co-op bosses and, according to the circular, outlined the voluntary scheme had to be attractive to all members, stipulating the union would not accept any forced layoffs.About 1,100 of Co-op’s 2,650 staff will go to Hellenic while another 900 will have to retire through a voluntary retirement scheme.During the meeting, Co-op’s managers were advised by Etyk that the voluntary scheme must offer at least €100,000 as compensation to staff and a maximum of €200,000 so that low-wage earners at the Co-op can benefit too and everyone can have five annual salaries.Etyk also said all of Altamira’s local staff – the Spanish non-performing loan specialist which has been cooperating with the Co-op since last year – should be able to work at the bank if they wish to and be allowed to transfer to the Hellenic Bank.The circular outlined that Co-op’s management was going to study Etyk’s views and come back with an answer within the next few days.Etyk sought to ensure their members they would do everything in their power to protect their interests. You May LikeUPRIGHT GO Posture Training DeviceThis Innovative Gadget Will Fix Your Nasty Slouching Habit Over TimeUPRIGHT GO Posture Training DeviceUndoCloud Hosting Starting $0.00Zero Oversold Cloud Resource Hosting, starting at $0.00/mCloud Hosting Starting $0.00UndoNewsDSchool Finds Student’s Purse And Prom Invite From 1954 And Return Them To Its OwnerNewsDUndo Clear winner in first round of Kition bishop voteUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoVerstappen wins crazy German Grand PrixUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

President unveils Noratlas aircraft in honour of Greek commandos V Update 2

first_imgAn aircraft, similar to the Noratlas transport plane which was shot down by friendly fire during the 1974 Turkish invasion, was unveiled on Friday by Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades, in a sombre ceremony marking the 44th anniversary of the Turkish invasion.In his address, Anastasiades said the new Noratlas, dedicated to the Greek commandos and crew of the originals who were killed during operation NIKI 4, in the early  hours of Monday, July 22, 1974 and a memorial, dedicated to the ‘mother of the missing, unveiled Thursday, constituted a reminder of the state’s debt to present and future generations to reach a “just and viable solution of the Cyprus problem and to find out what has become of each and every missing person.”Anastasiades said the ceremony was “a minimum mark of respect and gratitude” to those who died. He acknowledged the failings of successive governments to excavate the site where the plane was buried to give closure to the families and allow a proper burial.The president unveiled the plane in the presence of the ministers of defence of Cyprus and Greece, as well as the Chief of the National Guard and the Chief of the Airforce. The unveiling followed a memorial service for army officers and soldiers killed during the invasion which took place at the Makedonitissa Tomb.Political party leaders, religious and military leadership and other officials also attended and wreaths were laid in honour of all those who perished.Greece was represented by National Defence Minister Panos Kammenos, Georgios Varemenos, Second Deputy Speaker of the  Greek Parliament, as well as representatives of Greek fighters’ associations and relatives of the crew on board the fatal flight to Nicosia.“We will continue their fight in defence of the Republic of Cyprus. We shall strive to reach a just, functional and viable solution of the Cyprus problem,” Anastasiades said.He assured that the government would continue its effort to put an end to the unacceptable stance of Turkey and establish what had happened to each missing person on the basis of specific proof.“We will continue trying without giving in to reach a solution which will guarantee the territorial integrity and the full sovereignty of our country,” he added.He also expressed the “Cypriot people’s gratitude for Greece’s longstanding support in the effort to end occupation and to reunify our country.”Noratlas, along with other Greek transport planes, set off in an operation code named “Victory”, to transport a battalion of Greek commandos from Souda, Crete, to Nicosia, to help in the heavy fighting that took place at Nicosia International Airport. The Greek aircraft however, were caught in friendly fire, which resulted in the loss of 31 men and the destruction of three aircraft.Sixteen of the commandos, whose bodies were located at the site of the crash, were buried in Lakatamia military cemetery. One commando, Thanasis Zafiriou, survived the crash. He died in September 2016. The remaining commandos and crew were found inside the Noratlas plane when it was recently unearthed. The remains of 13 were identified and returned to their families. Three commandos are still missing.  You May Like90MINServe and Protect: Police Officer Sees Bear Cub Struggling And Decides to Help90MINUndoAirBoltWhy This Innovative Smart Travel Lock is Amazing?AirBoltUndoBuzzsteackStrong Differences Between American Fillet or Steak TartarBuzzsteackUndo Bale’s China move called off by Real MadridUndoProtest outside the House over foreclosures lawUndoLED-lighting the way by 2020Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Preliminary conclusions reached on possible criminal offences in coop debacle

first_imgThe state Legal Service has arrived at certain preliminary conclusions relating to the possible commission of criminal offences in the collapse of the co-op bank, Attorney-general Costas Clerides said on Friday.Clerides had assigned two teams of state attorneys with the task of studying an 800-page report on the findings of a probe into the collapse and determine whether criminal or civil law offences had been committed.“We have arrived at certain preliminary conclusions regarding issues of potential criminal responsibilities, which we will refine within the next few days,” he told the Cyprus News Agency without elaborating further. “On the matter of civil offences, we are having a new meeting later today.”The three-panel investigating committee, which presented its findings early this month, said Finance Minister Harris Georgiades was mainly to blame for the demise. It also recommended further investigation into the possibility of criminal offences committed by former CEO Nicolas Hadjiyiannis and others.Georgiades has rejected calls to resign, arguing that the bank buckled under the weight of around €7bn in bad debts.He later announced that he was stepping down at the end of this year but said it was not related to the co-op issue.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
