Category: ffecvqhazfzsocfs Undergraduate Research

first_imgOn April 3, almost 70 College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) undergraduate students presented their research in the annual CAES Undergraduate Research Symposium.This event gives students the opportunity to communicate their research findings to faculty, students and staff, and to compete for cash prizes.For Vivian Yang, whose project is titled “Quality Change in High Pressure Processed Beef: A Study on How Edible Coatings and Spices Can Mitigate the Effects,” the opportunity to gain experience in talking about her research is one of the most rewarding parts OF the symposium.“It’s been a growing experience for me,” Yang said. “Being a part of this symposium has helped me develop my self-confidence in conducting research and communicating it intelligently.”Faculty members from across the college served as mentors for these students throughout the research process. While assisting the students with research is the top priority, mentors also help students discover the many personal and professional benefits that come with conducting a research project.“Being involved in research exceeded my expectations,” said Macy Rowan, a third-year biological sciences major. “My professor and doctoral student were not only concerned with my research tasks, but also me as a person and with my professional development.”The research presented covered a wide range of topics from food science, animal science and plant science to economics and communication.“The high quality of our CAES undergraduate student research projects continues to amaze me,” said Doug Bailey, CAES assistant dean for academic affairs. “The CAES annual undergraduate initiative and our research symposium continue to grow. This year we are at an all-time high of $53,000 given to support 63 student projects, and the symposium consisted of 67 student presentations. We are extremely proud of our students and very grateful to the faculty mentors who give so generously of their time and resources allowing our students such wonderful research experiences.”The competition was split between oral presentations and poster presentations. Prizes were given in each session to ensure uniformity in the judging process. The winners, their project titles and their mentors are listed below.Poster Session AKatelyn CavenderTitle: “The Effects of the Corazonin Gene on the Mating Behavior of Sunflower-fed Oncopeltus fasciatus Males”Mentor: Patricia MooreAdrea MuellerTitle: “Investigation of Chromosome Breaks in Canine Ocular Neoplasms of Melanocytes”Mentor: Paige CarmichaelChristian PowellTitle: “The Impact of Birth Order, Birth Weight, and Teat Location on Overall Growth Performance of Neonatal Pigs”Mentor: Robert DovePosters Session BSowmya RadhakrishnanTitle: “Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spatiotemporal Gait Parameters in Response to Tanshinone IIA Loaded Nanoparticle Treatment in a Pig Model” Mentor: Franklin WestKylie GradenTitle: “Testing for Influences of Ovarian Follicle Growth Rate in Japanese Quail”Mentor: Kristen NavaraElizabeth HuntTitle: “The Effect of Differing Se and Mg Levels on Growth Performance in Nursery Pigs”Mentor: Robert DoveOral Session A Grace BoothbyTitle: “The Impact of Genetic Selection on Skeletal Health and Development in Broilers”Mentor: Laura EllestadDestiny EakerTitle: “Treatment Decisions for Presumptive Mastitis Using Dairy Heifer Secretions”Mentor: Valerie RymanOral Session BThomas GottillaTitle: “An Investigation into the Response of Paspalum vaginatum to Saline Conditions”Mentor: Katrien DevosJade SamplesTitle: “Determining Accuracy of a Novel Culture System for Mastitis Pathogens in Dairy Cattle”Mentor: Valerie RymanOral Session CCourtney CameronTitle: “Terminal Die-back, the Result of a New Neofusicoccum Species”Mentor: Marin BrewerKristen PisaniTitle: “The Effect of Terpenoids on the Foodborne Pathogenic Bacteria Salmonella Newport in Vitro”Mentor: Todd CallawayTo learn more about undergraduate research opportunities available to CAES students, visit students.caes.uga.edu/current/research.html.

Category: ffecvqhazfzsocfs Guatemala Seizes Semisubmersible

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo June 09, 2017 From January 1st to May 10th, the Special Naval Force of Guatemala, together with the Ministry of Interior, carried out a set of forceful measures that resulted in the seizure of two vessels, a small plane, 2,000 kilograms of cocaine, and the arrest of 10 suspects, as part of their strategy against drug trafficking. Additionally, in the last 17 months, the Guatemalan Navy has seized 27 vessels from drug traffickers. “Currently, of the drugs that enter the country, 80 percent come in through the Pacific Ocean and 20 percent through the Caribbean Sea, [just] to change the transport method from sea to land. The largest narcotics seizures have been in the Pacific [Ocean], due to the connection that exists with South America on those coasts,” Vice Admiral Boris Castillo Cermeño, commander of the Guatemalan Navy, told Diálogo. “Guatemala’s geostrategic position has turned it into a key point for drug trafficking operations [coming from the south], headed for Mexico and the United States. The flow of drugs along the coasts of this country has increased,” Lizandro Acuña, a security and justice expert at the Institute of National Problems at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala, told Diálogo. According to the Guatemalan Navy, in 2016 the coordinated efforts of this elite naval unit detected and interrupted the illicit maritime traffic of 25 vessels and 7.5 metric tons of cocaine headed to the U.S. and Mexico, a relatively high figure for Guatemala. Unit members also arrested 99 people of different nationalities who were linked to drug trafficking. In this same time period, authorities in this Central American country seized 12.8 metric tons of cocaine. Low profile vessels Vice Adm. Castillo commented that illegal organizations use semisubmersibles or Tiburonera-, Eduardoño-, or colombiana-type vessels, medium-sized fast vessels propelled by 200 horsepower outboard motors, with a 5- to 10-metric ton capacity per trip on average. On April 22nd, during a maritime enforcement patrol, the Pacific Naval Command aboard the Guatemalan Coast Guard ship “Kaibil Balam” (GC-652), located an unnamed, low-profile vessel. It was an abandoned semisubmersible without cargo, crew, or propulsion engines, and it was partially sunk 42 kilometers off the coast between Sipacate and the Nahualete River, according to a press release from the Guatemalan Army. The 5-ton capacity semisubmersible had been abandoned in Pacific waters and had apparently been used to transport narcotics. During their inspection, they found the hull to be in good condition. Inside the vessel, there were hoses for the fuel compartments and filters for the engine, as well as supplies and drinks from Colombian manufacturers. “Thanks to the actions of the maritime commands and the Special Naval Force, Guatemala is, little by little, reducing the flow of vessels used to transport narcotics. This operational effort has also managed to increase the seizure of drugs and cash from these criminals,” Vice Adm. Castillo stressed. “We can’t deny these advances in the fight against drug trafficking. However, [these] structures have the transnational capability and financial resources to use any kind of vessel, even submarines so that the drugs arrive at their main market,” Acuña expressed. Elite unit at the service of Guatemala The best weapon that Guatemala has at sea is the Special Naval Force, an elite unit that operates both in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The unit performs maritime security, naval rescue, and patrol duties previously conducted by naval commands. Its patrol duty goes beyond Guatemala’s 22 kilometers of territorial waters. This elite unit conducts joint operations with the U.S. Coast Guard and other international agencies for the purpose of dismantling drug transport systems that navigate along the maritime route used by drug traffickers. “The transfer of information and the instruction and training provided by the U.S. government contribute to strengthening security along the coasts where this type of illicit activity has been seen the most. We are also making a contribution to neighboring countries that are cooperating, such as El Salvador, Honduras, and Mexico,” Vice Adm. Castillo said. The importance of international cooperation Guatemala’s course of action against transnational crime is reinforced by Operation Martillo (Hammer), a multinational military force headed by U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). The operation includes Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Panama, among other countries, in the fight against drug trafficking and organized crime in Central America. Official data from SOUTHCOM indicates that while Operation Martillo, which is just over five years old, has been in force, it has resulted in the seizure of more than 693 metric tons of cocaine and 581 vessels and aircraft, and 1,863 persons arrested, according to SOUTHCOM’s website. SOUTHCOM does ongoing training and keeps members of the Special Naval Force updated on various specialties, such as maritime interdiction, vessel boarding, the search of ships and people, electronic navigation, and coastal patrols, in order to have greater control and thus intercept drugs attempting to enter the Central American country. The lack of technologically sophisticated equipment is the main challenge faced by the Guatemalan Navy in order to have a more successful course of action. “We have some needs and limitations, as all countries do. It’s important to have good information and intelligence, detection satellites, air platforms, and rapid vessels to be more successful in detection, monitoring, and interdiction for the purpose of denying transnational criminal organizations the capability of transporting narcotics and other illicit merchandise by sea,” Vice Adm. Castillo concluded.last_img read more

Category: ffecvqhazfzsocfs US State Department Warns US Citizens Not to Travel Abroad

first_img“Airlines have cancelled many international flights and several cruise operators have suspended operations or cancelled trips,” it said. “If you choose to travel internationally, your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite timeframe.” Share (CNN) The US State Department on Thursday warned American citizens not to travel abroad due to the coronavirus pandemic, issuing the highest possible level of travel advisory.The Level 4: Do Not Travel advisory “advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.”The State Department urged Americans “in countries where commercial departure options remain available” to “arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.”The updated advisory also cautioned US citizens living abroad to “avoid all international travel.”“Many countries are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and implementing travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines, closing borders, and prohibiting non-citizens from entry with little advance notice,” it said. Tweet Sharing is caring! 85 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share InternationalLifestyleNews US State Department Warns US Citizens Not to Travel Abroad by: – March 20, 2020 Share Four sources told CNN earlier on Thursday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had approved the Level 4 advisory.Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the Level 4 travel advisory had been used sparingly for only a handful of countries, including Syria, Iran, Yemen and North Korea. However, as the virus spread around the globe, the department raised the advisory to the top level for a number of additional countries, including China and Mongolia, as well as regions within certain countries.Last week the advisory was raised globally to Level 3: Reconsider Travel “due to the global impact of COVID-19.”A US diplomat overseas said one reason that Level 4 advisory was being considered was that US embassies were increasingly less able to help Americans overseas with consular services, as staff get drawn down.Many factors were feeding into this, the diplomat said, including the wide range of medical capabilities across the globe, which determines how willing some State Department staff may be willing to stay. One indicator US embassies are carefully watching is hospital capacity in their host countries, the diplomat said.Last weekend, the State Department “authorized the departure from any diplomatic or consular post in the world of US personnel and family members who have been medically determined to be at higher risk of a poor outcome if exposed to COVID-19.”Visa services being suspendedDue to the pandemic, the State Department “is suspending routine visa services in most countries,” according to a tweet from the Bureau of Consular Affairs. On Thursday, it announced that its passport agencies would only offer services “for customers with a qualified life-or-death emergency and who need a passport for immediate international travel within 72 hours,” effective Friday.However, hundreds of Americans are already abroad, including in countries which have restricted travel and closed their borders in an effort to contain the outbreak. Many of those who are stranded said they are struggling to get help from the State Department.State Department officials said their colleagues are working around the clock to be as responsive as possible, and US diplomats stationed overseas said they are trying their best, but are struggling because of reduced staffing even as they juggle their own worries about family.last_img read more

Category: ffecvqhazfzsocfs Van Gaal silent on Welbeck future

first_imgLouis van Gaal refused to comment on Danny Welbeck’s future as speculation mounts the England striker is set to leave Manchester United. The former Ajax manager, who lost his first Premier League game to Swansea last week, has been bemused by some of the criticism he has received for a lack of transfer activity. “Two weeks ago I was the king of Manchester and now I am the devil of Manchester,” Van Gaal said. The only signings through the door so far are Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo. All three have potential but they are not yet in the same league as the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Toni Kroos and Diego Costa – all of whom were available earlier in the summer. Van Gaal remains to committed to signing new players before the transfer window shuts a week on Monday. The club have privately distanced themselves from reports they are close to signing Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid. Dutch duo Kevin Strootman and Daley Blind are on Van Gaal’s shortlist, while Sami Khedira appears to be another option after he requested to leave Real Madrid. But if United fans were hoping for some assurance from their manager over new signings, then it was not forthcoming. “It’s not so easy to buy and sell in the football market,” Van Gaal said bluntly. Instead, Van Gaal’s insists United’s supporters need to be patient. “It shall be difficult in the first three months,” he said. “I have said that to (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward and (owners) the Glazers, “I am hired to build up a team and that is a process and that process needs time. “You have to believe in the philosophy that we make again a big club but it needs time and it’s not an overnight job.” In fact, Van Gaal says he would understand it if supporters shared the view of Paul Scholes, the former United midfielder who said he was “genuinely scared” about the club’s future this week. “I can imagine that fans are also scared,” the 63-year-old said. “Because they have seen what happened last year and they have seen the first match (this year). “But also they have to believe in the philosophy that we bring into this club and the players are believing that. “They have shown that in the US, but they need to show it here. “They need time. And also Paul Scholes needs to believe in that philosophy.” Press Association Press Association Sport understands Welbeck, who joined United in 2007, has been told he can depart Old Trafford. The 23-year-old started the majority of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States, but he is unlikely to jump ahead of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie in the pecking order, and is therefore free to go. In a heated press conference at the club’s training ground, Van Gaal refused to confirm or deny the story, but the new United manager admitted he was angry that details of a private conversation he held with Welbeck had been leaked. Van Gaal said: “The media were not in the room and I do not speak about that because that’s private. “I know what I said to Danny and Danny knows exactly what I said to him. “I assume that Danny Welbeck is not saying anything about our conversation and also in that conversation was (assistant manager) Ryan Giggs and he doesn’t say (anything) either, and that is the way it should be.” The decision to allow Welbeck, a local boy who worked his way through the ranks at Old Trafford, to go will come as a surprise to some United fans, particularly as Van Gaal does not have a strong selection of strikers to choose from. Javier Hernandez is the only other senior striker available to the Dutchman, and he has been linked with a move away from the club. Van Gaal is determined to streamline his squad though, and it is understood that up to 12 players have been informed they could leave. For the first time since taking over as manager, Van Gaal cut an angry figure as he addressed the media at the AON Training Complex at Carrington. last_img read more

Category: ffecvqhazfzsocfs Instagram account of Black Stars captain Andre Ayew hacked

first_imgThe Instagram account of Black Stars forward Andre Ayew has been hacked.Ayew, whose account currently has over 425,000 followers was taken over on Tuesday, with his profile picture replaced by a picture of the logo of Turkish side Fenerbache.The name of the profile has also been changed to ‘Andre Ayew MOPAO’, which means ‘Andre Ayew Boss/Master’ while the account’s handle has also been altered.The last post by the account, made after it was hacked, is a picture of the Fenerbache flag with the caption: “Swansea City de çok sıkıldım havası bunalttı. Fenerbahçe’ye dönüyorum”, which translates loosely as  “I’m very bored with Swansea. Back to Fenerbahce.”Ayew spent last season on loan at the Turkish club where, despite a less than stellar campaign, he still scored five goals in 35 matches in all competitions.This season Andre has been in fine form for Swansea scoring 6 goals in his last 8 league games and nine in total as Swansea fight for a Championship playoff place.It appears he endeared himself to Fenerbache fans while he was there, and his current form has left some desperate for him to return with the transfer window open.Ayew’s current club, Swansea City announced the hack on Twitter and stated that efforts were being made to resolve the matter.last_img read more
