Where Will Obama Find $100 Million for the New HIV Cure Initiative?

first_imgWhen President Barack Obama announced yesterday “a new initiative at the National Institutes of Health [NIH] to advance research into an HIV cure,” he noted that the government would “redirect $100 million into this project.” But Obama did not specify where the money would be redirected from, and a subsequent NIH press release offered only a hint of more detail, noting that money “will come from existing resources and a redirection of funds from expiring AIDS research grants over the next three years.”In an e-mail to ScienceInsider, Jack Whitescarver, director of NIH’s Office of AIDS Research, explained that “existing resources” means NIH’s existing $3.1 billion HIV/AIDS budget: No new money will come from other parts of NIH. About 20% to 25% of NIH grants expire each year and become eligible to recompete, Whitescarver says, and some will not merit refunding because they focus “on areas of AIDS-related research that are now considered less pressing.” As an example, he singled out research on AIDS-associated opportunistic infections, which previously was a high priority. “But with the advent of effective antiretroviral therapy, that research, while still scientifically meritorious, is now of lower priority for funding with AIDS research dollars,” Whitescarver explained.Sign 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(*)The official shift in priorities meshes with what has been happening in the field. HIV/AIDS researchers over the past 5 years have put increasing emphasis on studying cure-related issues like viral latency and ridding the body of the small reservoir of infected cells that remain even when anti-HIV drugs fully suppress viral replication. NIH has committed $65 million this fiscal year, for example, to research targeting “eradication of viral reservoirs.”Obama’s announcement took many HIV cure researchers and advocates by surprise, but it was welcome news—with a decided note of cautious optimism. “I like the idea that they’re recognizing cure research, but who’s going to decide what other areas of research don’t need to be done?” asks Rowena Johnston, director of research at amfAR, a New York City-based nonprofit that long has been at the forefront of funding cure studies. “We’re very strenuously not a fan of robbing Peter to pay Paul, and right now we don’t know who Peter is.”last_img read more

India A need 108 runs to avoid innings defeat against Australia A

first_imgIndia A started off strongly but lost four quick wickets for 16 runs as they ended Day 3 against Australia A on 158 for four, still needing 108 runs to avoid the innings defeat.Akhil Herwadkar and Faiz Fazal started off well as they stitched a partnership of 84 runs in 30 overs before Fazal departed for 29 runs. But the Indian innings fell apart as Jon Holland struck thrice and reduced India to 100 for four.India A’s opening partnership ended with a chaotic run out. A throw at the striker’s end missed the stumps before Travis Dean, backing up, hit the other end to catch Fazal short of his ground. (Also read: Pacer Shardul Thakur’s efforts go in vain as Australia A wrest advantage)Fazal had played second fiddle to Herwadkar, contributing 29 off 88 balls with two fours and a six.

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Lopetegui, though is still weighing up his options in attack and has not discounted Morata from his plans.”I won’t assess players individually,” Lopetegui told Sport. “He is one of the players we like, who has our confidence and we have to make decisions.”We’ve always said the same of Morata, Diego Costa, Rodrigo [Moreno], Iago Aspas and some others who haven’t been called up: we trust them, and we’ll see.”Lopetegui is eager to create a “balanced” squad for Russia and has denied that more versatile players, such as Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto, could struggle to be part of his plans.”We will put together basically a balanced list. We will leave some player out undeservedly, unfairly,” he said.”We do not penalise. We make decisions about players who can help us in certain games. Sergi has been called up and also gone home because of last-minute injuries. We’ll see.”The identity is clear. We’re a predictable team but we have the ambition to improve as a team and to have different responses in matches. We want to be as complete as possible.”Gerard Pique Spain Italy WC QualifiersLopetegui again dismissed the idea that any animosity between Barca and Real Madrid players could affect the harmony of the squad, insisting he will not ask the likes of Gerard Pique to behave in a certain way.”Gerard has an important maturity in every aspect and he shows it,” he said. “Everyone has their character and we can’t go against this.”Plus, we want everyone to show their personality because it is part of the DNA of each player. We don’t have the slightest complaint.”I have no doubt about their good relationship. They don’t stage it. It’s a reality. In the national team, there is a good atmosphere and nothing more to say.”Lopetegui added that he considers Andres Iniesta to be a key part of his plans because of the quality he possesses, rather than his past achievements.The midfielder, who scored the winning goal in the 2010 final, is leaving Barca at the end of the season and is likely to step down from international football after the World Cup finals.”I’m more aware of what he has to do than what he has done,” Lopetegui added. “That’s an important nuance. He’s an active player. He isn’t coming because of what he did, but of what he can do.”last_img read more

Opinions were immediately divided in the commentary box. Matthew Hayden said Ashwin’s act was ‘very, very disappointing’ while Harsha Bhogle argued it was within the rules of the game.Buttler, who looked set for his maiden IPL hundred, walked off and was far from pleased with what happened. RR fans at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur went berserk but that noise might have been part of a roaring reception for Steve Smith who walked in to bat at the fall of Buttler’s wicket.Buttler was in red-hot form for Royals in 2018 when he scored 548 runs from 13 matches with a best of 95 not out and he got off to a fiery start in the new season. Chasing 185, Buttler and Ajinjya Rahane charged away to 78 for the opening wicket before Rahane fell to R Ashwin on the first ball of the ninth over. However, Buttler continued to bully the KXIP attack and scored his first ever hundred in the T20 format.Rajasthan Royals were cruising along when it all unfolded in the 13th over. Ashwin Mankaded Buttler and appealed immediately. Jos Buttler was seething with rage but he had to walk off after replays confirmed Buttler was short of the crease. It looked like Ashwin stopped in his bowling action and maybe even waited for Buttler to leave his crease. The third umpire ruled Buttler out and he was on his way to the RR dugout.advertisement#AskStar being captain ashwin should not do such dismissal .This is against the cricket sprite pic.twitter.com/xrYknHliGOChowkidar Nitin Tripathi (@NitinTr81906338) March 25, 2019England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan said he could not believe what he saw and reckoned Ashwin will regret his decision.”I can’t believe what I’m seeing!! @IPL Terrible example to set for young kids coming through.

What a guy,” she tweeted.Buttler was batting like a man possessed and he was not at all happy with his mode of dismissal. This debate is unlikely to settle down soon.Jason Roy, Buttler’s England teammate, said he was very disappointed to see what happened on the field in Jaipur.”Ashwin, that’s shocking behaviour! Very disappointed to see that,” Roy tweeted.Dale Steyn, South Africa’s pace ace, had this to say: “He ain’t winning any spirit of cricket awards is old Ashwin.”In 66 T20 Internationals for England, Jos Buttler has scored 1260 runs and hit 7 fifties. He is a destructive ODI player too and has 7 hundreds from 127 matches. In 2018, Buttler was on fire with some sensational knocks through the course of the IPL. He was selected in the England Test series against Pakistan and had to leave the IPL with one league match still to be played. He scored 67 and 80 not out in two Tests against Pakistan.Against India in Nottingham, Buttler scored 106 – his maiden Test hundred.Jos Buttler was also in good form in the ODI series against Austraia in England last year. He scored 91 not out, 54 not out and 110 not out in the series.advertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Cove Point Liquefaction Project Approved

first_imgzoom The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has authorized Dominion Cove Point LNG, LP to build the Cove Point Liquefaction Project in Calvert County, Maryland, and related facilities at an existing compressor station and at metering and regulating sites in Virginia.The approval came after more than two years of consideration of Dominion’s proposal during which FERC heard from more than 140 speakers at three public meetings related to the Environmental Assessment, and received more than 650 comments from the public and federal, state and local agencies on the application.The project will enable Dominion to transport up to 860,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas form existing pipeline interconnects near the west end of the Cove Point Pipeline, to the Cove Point terminal, for the export of up to 5.75 metric tonnes of liquefied natural gas per year.

Assembly President calls for revamping UN in final address to Member States

14 September 2009The President of the General Assembly today called for a complete overhaul of the United Nations so that it can effectively carry out its mission, as he wrapped up his year-long term as head of the 192-member body. “The time has already passed for reforming or mending our Organization. What we need to do is to reinvent it, and we need to do it urgently,” Miguel D’Escoto told Member States in a wide-ranging speech that touched on several issues of that concerned the Assembly’s sixty-third session, including the global financial crisis, international aid and Security Council reform.“Much remains to be done if the United Nations is to become worthy of the prestige, trust and credibility it needs to carry out its mission effectively, a mission that is so important in today’s world,” he stated.Mr. D’Escoto cited, among others, a “low level of commitment” on the part of the “most powerful and influential Member States” to the rule of law and to complying with the legal norms enshrined in the UN Charter.“Certain Member States think that they can act according to the law of the jungle, and defend the right of the strongest to do whatever they feel like with total and absolute impunity, and remain accountable to no one.”As a first step to reinventing the UN, Mr. D’Escoto called for adopting a “Universal Declaration of the Common Good of the Earth and Humanity,” which could then be the basis for the draft of a new charter for the world body.He said his greatest frustration over the course of his presidency has been the situation of Palestine. “The evident lack of commitment for resolving it is a scandal that has caused me much sorrow.”In addition, he said he found “disgraceful the passivity and apparent indifference of some highly influential members of the Security Council to the fact that the blockade of Gaza has continued uninterrupted for two years, in flagrant violation of international law and of the resolution of the Security Council itself.”The global economic and financial crisis was a major issue on the global agenda over the past year. The President convened a Commission of Experts on Reforms of International Finance and Economic Structures, chaired by Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, which recommended that international finance structures must be drastically overhauled in the face of the crisis.The Commission also stated that a coordinated approach – bringing together not just the G-8 or even G-20 nations, but the “G-192” representing all members of the Assembly – is needed to pull the world out of the recession. “The G-8 and the G-20 will continue to be significant minorities. However, this is more due to the fact that they are rich and powerful than to their demonstrated ability to do things well,” said Mr. D’Escoto.“We cannot and should not forget that, after all, it is because of the extremely grave errors committed by them, and the Bretton Woods institutions run by them, that the world is currently undergoing what could well turn out to be the worst crisis in history.” read more

Mentorship inspires excellence in teaching award winner

For Jeffrey Atkinson, the award is the icing on the cake.“To be nominated by my peers is truly wonderful,” said Atkinson, recognized in front of his Faculty of Mathematics and Science colleagues at the Friday, June 8 Spring Convocation ceremony with the Faculty’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.The real motivation however, comes from a desire to be part of what he feels is the highest form of learning — passing on knowledge and skills to his students.With teaching evaluations that routinely refer to him as an “excellent prof” and the “best professor I’ve ever had,” it’s clear he’s a respected teacher in his chemistry and biotechnology courses.Teaching Excellence Award winner Jeffrey Atkinson, left, seen with Honorary Doctorate recipient Edward Burtynsky on stage during Convocation.Ejaz Ahmed, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Science, said Atkinson exemplifies the quality of teaching found in the Faculty.“From research excellence and distinguished teachers like Jeffrey, our Faculty and staff provide students with exceptional learning opportunities. I am exceedingly proud of his work and ongoing commitment to students,” he said.The award comes as the professor and current departmental chair celebrates 25 years with Brock’s Department of Chemistry.During his time at Brock, Atkinson has watched the mode of delivery shift from chalkboards to overheads to PowerPoint. Despite the change, one thing has remained constant: the lasting impact his teaching has had on students.“Often when my past students have returned to say hello, they will speak of those times when the lecture was forgotten, a story was told, and a moment was shared,” said Atkinson. “That they would remember something years later that only took a minute, shows me how deeply personal learning can be and how fun it is to teach smart, engaged people.”Along with earning a reputation for being an exceptional educator, Atkinson also has a long and successful record of supervising students. He has graduated a total of 59 graduate and fourth-years Honours undergraduate students, with six thesis supervisions currently underway.Atkinson has also been a dedicated mentor to a host of undergraduate summer students, many funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s Undergraduate Student Research Awards (NSERC USRA). Since 1996, he has been involved in the acclaimed high school Science Mentorship Program.“All of these students have gone on to successful careers in research, teaching or industry,” said nominator and Chair, Centre for Biotechnology, Art van der Est.Having had excellent teachers at all levels of his schooling, Atkinson understands the importance of mentorship.“Mentoring can be as simple as pointing out patterns. In the laboratory setting where I get to know my students best, these moments come when the students question the results of an experiment or suggest a new, better way to do something,” he said. “That’s when teaching becomes a partnership and that’s special.”Quick to credit students in his lab, Atkinson also champions for their success at Brock and beyond.Students like Biological Sciences graduate Lucas Maddalena, regularly acknowledge the role he played in their studies. Currently working on his PhD at the University of Cambridge after accepting a prestigious $300,000 scholarship, Maddalena credited the support of his MSc supervisors, including Atkinson.Atkinson’s love of teaching extends to the community. For a number of years, he offered a course entitled “Introduction to the Science of Biotechnology for Non-Scientists” through BioTalent Canada, a non-profit organization whose mandate is to provide human resources information and skills development tools to the biotechnology industry in Canada.More recently, he has been working with Partners in Research Canada as a Virtual Researcher on Call (VROC), speaking to teachers and their Grades 4 to 12 classes about science, chemistry, biochemistry and what life at university is like for both students and teachers. The participating schools have been local to Niagara, wider ranging in Ontario and as far away as Iqaluit.“It is very rewarding to watch young scientists develop and feel the spark of discovery, the pride of problem-solving,” said Atkinson. “I think that helping students learn how to learn is maybe as important as the course content.”His work has been a reflection of a simple, but effective learning model: learn it, do it, teach it. read more

Selfishness Racism and Hypocrisy of Some Adults Ruined It

It is sad that a story that resonated and inspired so many has been imploded by so few. When Little League baseball—little league!—can be compromised by adults with their own agenda, it’s as clear an indication as any of the corruption that engulfs us.Kids playing a kid’s game has gone political, controversial and, yes, racial, with the kids the ultimate losers in all the machinations by self-serving, jealous and timid adults.Not just the Jackie Robinson West players who had their U.S. Championship rescinded on the heels of allegations that kids who did not live in the implicit district were playing on the team. But there will be other kids who will lose, too.In the world we live in, when Black people achieve something significant, they still often are trailblazers setting the path for others to follow their journey.Think the next all-Black team that dominates in little league baseball won’t be vetted beyond non-Black teams because of this fiasco? Of course, they will.This isn’t about race; it’s about reality. Want to shield your vision from what has happened time and again in corporate American or newsrooms or apartment leasing offices, go ahead. Some of us set the stage for others to follow, and if one goes awry, the decision-makers (Caucasians) heavily consider that misstep before granting another African-American an opportunity.Indeed, Black people often rue the conduct of other Black people. Say, for instance, Charles Barkley says something dumb, as he is wont to do. Many of us shudder, understanding that while Barkley does not represent us, his words and views inevitably will in some way be used against us.That phenomenon makes this little league baseball scandal that much more disheartening and significant.Even Jesse Jackson has come out from his seeming retirement to chime in on behalf of his fellow Chicagoans. “This is persecution. This is not right, it’s unnecessary. And it’s not fair,” Jackson said the other day at a press conference.He may be right. This whole drama started when a mostly white team from Chicago called authorities to say the Jackie Robinson West squad had players on its roster that did not live in the district. This also, it is important to note, was after the JRW team beat the brakes off that mostly white team, 43-2. And this came after JRW had captured the nation with a Little League World Series run that was marked by immense talent and admirable grace.Now, a city known for corruption in politics, has this on its ledger, too. And it’s the kids who are pained the most.“Little League says that they teach character and they teach courage. Well, this isn’t an act of courage and this sure isn’t an act of character. Brandon Green and his teammates, they earned the championship win and we will not stop until justice is done,” said Venisa Green, mother of JRW player Brandon Green.Renown Catholic priest Michael Pfleger said the words: “You need to reverse this unless you’re going to go after all 16 teams. This is a racist attack and racist at the foot of this, and there’s no way I’ll back off from that, none whatsoever.”The argument that every team has players living outside the designated zones does not make what JRW is alleged to have done right. But it sure is interesting that Evergreen Park, the whistleblowers on JRW, had at least one player from outside its area on its team in 2011. Renee Cannon-Young said her son, Jacoby, was recruited to play in Evergreen Park’s Little League, despite living on Chicago’s South Side.“The paperwork was filled out for me,” Cannon-Young said. “I was told that although he was not a resident of Evergreen Park, they were going to fix that so that he could play. Just use another address, and he would be able to play.”When Cannon-Young learned of Evergreen Park’s ratting out JRW, she screamed hypocrisy.So serious is this that Chicago mayor Raham Emanuel put it on his radar. He supports the team holding on to its championship. “Every home run was real,” he said. “Every great catch was real. The passion they brought from Chicago to Williamsport was real. And the character they showed on and off the field was real.”In vacating the title, Emanuel said, “You have turned (the youths) into the perpetrators when they are the victims. You know what they have done for Chicago, and let’s face it, you know what they’ve done for your tournament.”Jackie Robinson West player Brandon Green added: “We work hard all year long. And we went down there to play baseball and we weren’t involved in anything that could’ve caused us to be stripped of our championship.”This weekend, Rainbow PUSH (yes, it’s still around) plans to have a rally for the devastated and embarrassed players, to remind them that they are still champions, if not on paper any longer. Hovering above the occasion will be this truth: Adults who are supposed to be responsible let down the kids they are charged to protect. read more

Mixeduse development considered for Vancouver block

first_imgA downtown Vancouver block that sold earlier this year could be transformed into a mixed-use development.A pre-application submitted to the city by Gene Bolante of Studio 3 Architecture in Salem, Ore., calls for 96 units spread over a pair of two-story buildings. The proposal includes 43 on-site parking spaces, 24 bicycle parking spaces, balconies on some units and a covered outdoor area.The block, which is bordered by East 16th, 17th, D and C streets and contains six houses, sold for $1.85 million last month to Mark R. Madden Revocable Living Trust of Portland. When the block went up for sale, business owners and residents were both curious and concerned about the block’s future.Craig Roberts of C Roberts Hair Designs said if apartments end up being built, he imagines his salon will leave.“It will probably take some time,” he said.Pre-applications show a developer’s interest in the project, but they have to be reviewed and approved by the city before moving forward.The eight-lot block is zoned city center, which is “designed to provide for a concentrated mix of retail, office, civic and housing uses in downtown Vancouver,” and lies within the Downtown Plan District, according to city documents. A neighboring block is owned by Vancouver Housing Authority and is also slated for development.last_img read more
