Tag: 上海贵族宝贝 Police attack journalists trying to cover demonstration in support of judges

first_img Reporters Without Borders voiced shock today at police attacks on journalists covering a demonstration in Cairo yesterday in support of two Egyptian judges who were due to appear before a disciplinary tribunal.“It is becoming more and more difficult for the local and international press to cover protests that displease the regime,” the press freedom organisation said, pointing out that at least 50 journalists have been the victims of police violence while covering demonstrations since last November.“Those responsible for the use of violence against journalists must be punished,” Reporters Without Borders added.Thousands of anti-riot police were deployed yesterday to prevent demonstrators approaching the tribunal where pro-reform judges Mahmoud Mekki and Hicham al-Bastawissi were supposed to face disciplinary proceedings for calling for an investigation into the possible involvement of fellow judges in electoral fraud last November and December.Cameraman Yasser Sulaiman of the Cairo bureau of Al-Jazeera TV was hit in the face when he and his soundman, Nasr Youcef, were prevented from filming. His camera was seized and then returned without its videotape. Al-Jazeera producer Mohamed El Daba and one of the station’s reporters, Lina Gahadban, were detained and questioned at length before being freed.Reuters TV cameraman Ahmed Fahmy, Qatari TV cameraman Ahmed Salah and Salah’s soundman, Yehia Galal, all had similar experiences. Nadia Abou El Magd of the Associated Press and Hannah Allam from the US News chain Knight Ridder were harassed and jostled.

first_img Subscribe More Cool Stuff Community News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Caltech’s student leaders (from left to right): Sunita Darbe, Connor Rosen, and Catherine Jamshidi. Credit: Lance Hayashida/Caltech Marketing and CommunicationsHowever, these students say the juggling act can be a gratifying challenge. We recently spoke with Catherine Jamshidi, Connor Rosen, and Sunita Darbe about their experiences in student leadership, their goals for their organizations, and their time-management strategies.What are your main leadership responsibilities?Darbe: As chair of the Graduate Student Council (GSC), my job is to be the face of the graduate student body when interacting with all of the other parts of Caltech—for example, in working with the undergrads and with all of the various administrative offices and staff offices. I also try to keep an eye on what graduate students are bringing up and try to make sure that those concerns are heard by the appropriate people.Rosen: I’m the chair of the Interhouse Committee (IHC), and the ASCIT vice president for nonacademic affairs. I deal mainly with housing, dining, issues related to how housing placements happen, and any other issues related to where people are living. IHC is also involved in the policies related to those issues, so I also serve as the intermediary between the administration and the students on these policies.Jamshidi: As ASCIT (Associated Students of the California Institute of Technology) president, my first job is to oversee the ASCIT board of directors, which is the student government of the undergraduates. I try to be in touch with what’s going on around campus, what the student body is currently concerned about, and how I can bring those concerns to the relevant administrators or members of the faculty board. Make a comment Top of the News What were your goals when you began your term at the end of the last school year?Darbe: Obviously the technical training at Caltech is awesome, bar none. But we also want to make sure that some of the nontechnical skills—ones that are important for professional development, but don’t necessarily come through the graduate curriculum—are supported by GSC efforts. This year another one of our goals is to support and recruit a diverse student body, and we’ve been very pleased to see support for this at all levels in the administration.Jamshidi: My main goal is to learn about and address what the students care about. I also went into my term expecting to be able to give good direction to the individuals on the board of directors, helping them figure out what they need to be doing in their roles.Rosen: A lot of what the IHC works on are yearly needs that relate to the way the house system functions. The biggest of these is rotation, which is the process by which first years are assigned to a house. When I came in as IHC chair, I set goals for how efficient and effective I wanted the process to be. In the end, I wanted the students to be pleased with both with the process itself and with the outcomes. Rotation was all over and done at the beginning of the school year, and it went very well—I think we improved on the things we wanted to improve on from previous years. 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it What do you think is unique about being a leader at Caltech?Jamshidi: Caltech is so small that I feel like everyone knows me. At a larger school, people wouldn’t know who I am or what I do. Often, administrators will email me random questions like, “Who do I talk to about XYZ?” and I’ll redirect them. That interaction wouldn’t happen at a larger school.Rosen: It also goes the other way. Because Caltech is so small, we are able to have weekly and biweekly meetings with the vice president for student affairs. That just doesn’t happen at other places. Also, I know that my job doesn’t exist elsewhere because the house system is unique. That has its pros and its cons. I love the house system; it’s great to be a part of. But when I’m trying to troubleshoot something, I can’t ask, for example, “What did they do at MIT when something similar to this happened?” because there’s no comparison to be drawn.

I do work on protein degradation in the biology lab of professor Alex Varshavsky.Darbe: I’m a fourth year graduate student in materials science. I work with Harry Atwater on optics for ultrahigh-efficiency solar cells. How will these leadership skills be applicable to your after-graduation plans?Darbe: I’m interested in being a research scientist. It’s not yet clear to me where the most exciting opportunity is going to be, but I think that a lot of these GSC skills are going to be very helpful. Being able to corral people, and motivate people, and run an effective meeting. And, among other things, learning how not to promise too much. So many of these skills will be very, very useful, in years to come.Rosen: I’m applying to biology programs for graduate school right now; I definitely know that I want to stay in research. Just as Sunita said, these roles allow us to peek behind the academic curtain, and if I end up being a professor, I’ll be on the inside. To know how an institution like Caltech runs at more than just the teaching level will be useful.Jamshidi: I think the people skills I’ve gained as a leader will help in the future. My classes have prepared me with scientific and technical knowledge, and my leadership role has helped me develop skills like being able to work with lots of different people and learn how they’re thinking. Those are important skills. It sounds like these roles are time-consuming. How do you fit in time for all of the other things in your lives, like classes, research, athletics, and so on?Jamshidi: I balance it by staying extremely organized. I schedule everything that I do, pretty much always. And if I notice that I’m spending more time on homework, I’ll reschedule everything. I don’t know how else I’d be able to do it.Darbe: I can only do this role by virtue of it being a one-year commitment. It’s a lot of time, but it’s really rewarding, and it’s really cool to see the academic institution from the other side—to sort of peek behind the curtain.Rosen: I’ve always made my position in the IHC a priority. I took this on because I felt it was important, and I had a lot of things I wanted to get done in the position—things that I cared about accomplishing. It is a priority, not only in terms of when I am in class, but also when I sign up for classes. If I know I could be spending 60 hours a week on IHC commitments during a particular term, I’m not going to sign up for 60 hours of classes. For example, during rotation there was one day where I woke up at 8 a.m., went to bed at 1 a.m. the next morning, and only had a lunch break in between. Community News How did you get involved in this leadership role, and what made you want to be a leader?Rosen: I ended up in student government almost by accident. I love the houses, and I was very involved in my house socially, and when someone said that our house needed a president, I said, “I want to do it.” As president of my house, I served on the Interhouse committee for a year before becoming chair. I like being involved because I care about the people, I care about the house, and I want to be here to help students solve their problems, so they can go back to focusing on everything else that life—and Caltech’s coursework—is throwing at them.Jamshidi: I started in student government during the third term of my freshman year. For the first two terms I was here I saw the upperclassmen who were involved, and they seemed to know everything—I wanted to be like them. And my involvement was also partially driven by boredom. I play volleyball during the fall term, and then during winter I had my first break from volleyball in a long time and I was like, “I have so much free time! What do I do now?” So I became the ASCIT secretary and I really enjoyed it.Darbe: I was involved in GSC last year, in the capacity of organizing a professional development conference. When I see something happening and I have opinions about it, I don’t like to let things sit. I like to do something about it. And fortunately, because of its small size, Caltech is an easy place to make things happen.

Tag: 上海贵族宝贝 Naval ROTC hosts charity for Special Olympics

first_imgThe Naval Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program of Notre Dame will be holding its annual 24 hour run through campus from Friday at 6 p.m. to Saturday at 6 p.m. to raise money for St. Joseph’s County Special Olympics. The event will be held at Fieldhouse Mall.Junior Michael Terranova, president of the Trident Naval Society, said that the event involves midshipmen raising money around campus.“How it works is Midshipmen in the ROTC unit, the Naval ROTC unit, they run in tandem,” Terranova said.  “So, it’s two guys per hour, one-hour shifts, and we go continuously for 24 hours … [We] run around campus collecting donations.”Terranova said the group will keep the navy theme throughout the event.“One midshipman will be dressed in a shark costume and one with a trident,” he said.Since the tradition began, the midshipmen have realized that gamedays provide the best opportunity to raise money on campus because of the increased foot traffic it brings to the area.“We do this every year,” he said. “Last year we raised $4,200, and it’s a really nice gameday tradition that we always do. It’s one game a year, so we chose Stanford because it’s a big game.”Terranova said the event involves as many midshipmen as possible to help bring in more donations.“As far as runners go, there’ll be 48 runners, and then we have everyone in the battalion manning the [donations] booth,” he said. “It’s an all hands evolution. So, it’s pretty big involvement.”To capitalize on this exciting gameday atmosphere, Terranova said that the midshipmen plan to run everywhere and anywhere there are people.“[We go] all over the place,” he said. “The main spots are the Dome, Main Circle, the landmarks, we run up to the tailgates, so you can see us out there.”People who are interested in the cause will also be able to donate to St. Joseph’s County Special Olympics through Paypal.Terranova said Naval ROTC appreciates St. Joseph’s County Special Olympics’ dedication to helping raise the levels of confidence and competitiveness with those who struggle with developmental disabilities through the organizing of sporting events.“[St. Joseph’s County Special Olympics] gives people who aren’t as fortunate the opportunity to express themselves through sport, to be competitive, to do things that we take for granted,” he said. “It’s important to help organizations like that, that give that opportunity to people who don’t necessarily have that given to them through no fault of their own.“We’ve had a pretty good relationship with them over the years,” Terranova said. “They organize a bunch of sporting events for the challenged in South Bend … ROTC is always volunteering at Special Olympic events. It’s important that we give them this money, so they can keep doing … good things.”Tags: 24 hour run, Naval ROTC, st. joseph’s county special olympics, trident naval societylast_img read more

Tag: 上海贵族宝贝 ICC reviewing du Plessis lolly footage

first_img(REUTERS) – Footage showing South Africa captain Faf du Plessis applying saliva to the ball with a lolly in his mouth is being reviewed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to see if he has breached the governing body’s code of conduct.A day after South Africa took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the Test series in Australia by winning in Hobart, footage emerged showing du Plessis with a white lolly in his mouth, licking his finger before shining the ball.Applying an artificial substance to alter the condition of the ball contravenes the ICC’s code of conduct.“The ICC has been alerted to the footage and is currently reviewing the incident from the perspective of it being a possible breach of the ICC Code of Conduct,” an ICC spokesman said in a statement.The world governing body has five days from the close of play on Tuesday to charge the South Africa skipper after the match referee’s report did not mention the incident.In 2013, du Plessis was fined 50 percent of his match fee for ball-tampering in the second Test against Pakistan.He was caught on camera rubbing the ball against a zip on his pocket on the third day of the match in Dubai, leading umpires Ian Gould and Rod Tucker to penalise South Africa five runs and change the ball. du Plessis did not contest the charge.last_img read more

Tag: 上海贵族宝贝 Protein Function: It’s All in the Fold

first_imgMost chemical reactions involve atoms or molecules bumping into one another and exchanging electrons.  Proteins, by contrast, derive their immense functional repertoire from their shapes.  Several recent studies explore the amazing potential for strength, motility and catalysis that derives from the way proteins fold.Clots:  A picture of fibrin graces an article in Science Daily.  This protein is responsible for blood clotting.  It has a remarkable property of stretching that comes from unfolding as stresses are applied.  “Understanding blood clot mechanics could help in the design of new treatments not only to prevent or remove clots that cause heart attacks and strokes but also to enhance blood clotting in people with bleeding disorders,” the article said. Muscle stack:  Titin is an appropriately named protein active in muscle.  Its remarkable ability to maintain strength while stretching comes from the way it folds into stacks of sheet-like material.  A commentary in PNAS by Ronald S. Rock described recent work by Bertz et al that shows how another component, telethonin, sitting like a mattress between sheets of titin, contributes to the function.  “What they found was surprising: not only was this the most robust protein or protein complex ever measured, but it also could withstand nearly half the force required to break a covalent bond.  Clearly, there are some unusual features of this complex that lead to its remarkable stability.”  They also found that the strength was dependent on the direction of the force applied.  This led Rock to ask, “With these key structural features identified, can we now engineer these stabilizing interactions where none existed?”  For a popular writeup of these findings, see Science Daily.Imitation as flattery:  Speaking of engineering proteins, an article in Science Daily discussed recent attempts to imitate the folding of DNA and protein for nanotechnology.  A German team said, “we can now build a diversity of three-dimensional nanoscale machine parts, such as round gears or curved tubes or capsules.  Assembling those parts into bigger, more complex and functional devices should be possible.”  A biophysicist on the team added, “We expect many benefits if only we could build super-miniaturized devices on the nanoscale using materials that work robustly in the cells of our bodies – biomolecules such as DNA.”Diverse origami: Science Daily reported on work at Rice University to study the forces that bind proteins together.  In passing the article explained the design of these gems:“Proteins are the workhorses of biology.  Each protein is a string of amino acids that are attached end to end, like a strand of pearls.  The order of the amino acids comes from DNA blueprints, but the order itself doesn’t tell scientists what the protein is designed to do.  That’s because each protein folds in upon itself shortly after its made, much like a strand of pearls curls up as it’s dropped into someone’s palm.    Unlike the pearls, which might fall this way or that depending upon how they’re dropped, proteins fold the same way every time.  That’s important, because when they misfold, they cannot function properly and in some cases can make people sick.No mention was made of how a blind process like evolution could have achieved precision folding of a strand of pearls every time.One-handed trick: Speaking of design, biophysicists at New York University are excited about designing catalysts that can pick out or manufacture one-handed molecules like cells can.  “Many naturally occurring biopolymers (i.e., proteins, RNA, DNA) owe their unique properties to their well-defined three-dimensional structures,” they said in PNAS2  “These attributes have inspired the design and synthesis of folded architectures with functions ranging from molecular recognition to asymmetric catalysis.”  Sure enough, they discovered a way to do this.  The production of an endless supply of optically pure (one-handed) enantiomers (molecules that come in two hands) could have many applications, particularly when these are polymerized into “foldamers” (chains that fold into specific shapes).  “The transfer of chiral information from a folded scaffold can enable the use of a diverse assortment of embedded achiral catalytic centers, promising a generation of synthetic foldamer catalysts for enantioselective transformations that can be performed under a broad range of reaction environments.”  That’s one of the wonders of the cell – the ability to catalyze reactions like this at room temperature.  Techniques they are designing at their Molecular Design Institute are “promising extraordinary versatility for designing catalysts that can be tailored for a broad range of substrates and reaction environments.”That last paper mentioned evolution one time in passing:In living systems, biopolymer catalysts have evolved to accelerate specific biologically relevant transformations.  In contrast, synthetic catalysts must often be designed for nonbiological transformations to be performed in abiotic solvents, pH regimes, temperatures, and pressures that are incompatible with retention of biopolymer structure and activity.  Proteins, however, rely on a limited repertoire of amino acid monomers and require substantial chain lengths to achieve significant structural organization.It’s clear that they did not attempt to explain how “biopolymer catalysts have evolved.”  They also did not discuss the remarkable ability of living systems to distinguish between left- and right-handed members of chiral molecules – a feature absent from non-living systems.  Their work, instead, demonstrates that achieving enantioselectivity by artificial means requires intelligent design.1.  Ronald S. Rock, “A new direction for titin pulling, ” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences August 5, 2009, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0906989106.2.  Maayan, Ward and Kirshenbaum, “Folded biomimetic oligomers for enantioselective catalysis,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, August 10, 2009, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0903187106.A simple study of probability (see online book; also Stephen Meyer’s new book Signature in the Cell) would have convinced the NYU team that enantioselective catalysts made of “substantial chain lengths” could not have evolved.  Living things needed the selectivity before life was even possible.  That would leave only chance as a means getting the catalysts in the first place.  Is that even conceivably possible under ideal conditions?  Read chapter 3 and see.    Evolution collapses in a heap under the selective pressure of detailed investigations into biophysics.  It becomes a tangled web with no function.  In some cases, the misfolded chain of reasoning becomes toxic and can make people sick.  It gums up the works of science, producing a kind of Alzheimer’s syndrome that makes people forget their Maker.  It paralyzes rational thought.  The NYU reference to evolution, following the formula “[complex systems a, b, and c] have evolved,” shows another symptom: the knee jerk reaction.  Pray that uninfected biophysics finds a cure soon for this debilitating malady.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
