    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Two additional labs have confirmed that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned with Novichok, Germany has announced.Germany earlier this month said that the prominent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who fell ill on a flight to Moscow in August, was poisoned with the Soviet-era nerve agent, citing test results from a German military lab. On Monday, Germany said specialist labs in both France and Sweden have confirmed this finding, The Associated Press reports. "Three laboratories have now confirmed independently of one another the proof of a nerve agent of the Novichok group as the cause of Mr. Navalny's poisoning," Steffen Seibert, a spokesperson for the German government, said. Seibert called for Russia to "explain itself" and said "we are in close consultation with our European partners on further steps." An examination by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is ongoing, Germany also said. Navalny was taken to Germany for treatment after previously being hospitalized in Russia, and last week, the Berlin hospital said he was out of a medically induced coma. G7 countries have condemned Navalny's poisoning "in the strongest possible terms," while Russia has claimed a "massive disinformation campaign" is underway and that "unfounded attacks on Russia are continuing." Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week said there is a "substantial chance" that senior Russian officials were responsible for Navalny's poisoning."People all around the world see this kind of activity for what it is," Pompeo said.

    Scientists have created gene-edited pigs, goats and cattle to produce sperm with traits such as disease resistance and higher meat quality in what they say is a step towards genetically enhancing livestock to improve food production.  The process could help farmers rear healthier, more productive animals using fewer resources such as feed, medicines and water, they said.  'With this technology, we can get better dissemination of desirable traits and improve the efficiency of food production,' said Jon Oatley, a reproductive biologist at Washington State University in the United States, who co-led the work.

  • 55/82   Exercise May Make It Easier to Bounce Back From Stress
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    Exercise makes it easier to bounce back from too much stress, according to a fascinating new study with mice. It finds that regular exercise increases the levels of a chemical in the animals' brains that helps them remain psychologically resilient and plucky, even when their lives seem suddenly strange, intimidating and filled with threats.The study involved mice, but it is likely to have implications for our species, too, as we face the stress and discombobulation of the ongoing pandemic and today's political and social disruptions.Stress can, of course, be our ally. Emergencies and perils require immediate responses, and stress results in a fast, helpful flood of hormones and other chemicals that prime our bodies to act."If a tiger jumps out at you, you should run," said David Weinshenker, a professor of human genetics at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta and the senior author of the new study. The stress response, in that situation, is appropriate and valuable.But if, afterward, we "jump at every little noise" and shrink from shadows, we are overreacting to the original stress, Weinshenker continued. Our response has become maladaptive, because we no longer react with appropriate dread to dreadful things but with twitchy anxiety to the quotidian. We lack stress resilience.In interesting past research, scientists have shown that exercise seems to build and amplify stress resilience. Rats that run on wheels for several weeks, for instance, and then experience stress through light shocks to their paws, respond later to unfamiliar -- but safe -- terrain with less trepidation than sedentary rats that also experience shocks.But the physiological underpinnings of the animals' relative buoyancy after exercise remain somewhat mysterious. And, rats are just one species. Finding similar relationships between physical activity and resilience in other animals would bolster the possibility that a similar link exists in people.So, for the new study, which was published in August in the Journal of Neuroscience, Weinshenker and his colleagues decided to work with frazzled mice and to focus on the possible effects of galanin, a peptide that is produced throughout the body in many animals, including humans.Galanin is known to be associated with mental health. People born with genetically low levels of galanin face an uncommonly high risk of depression and anxiety disorders.Multiple studies show that exercise increases production of the substance. In the rat experiments, some of which were conducted at Weinshenker's lab, researchers found that exercise led to a surge in galanin production in the animals' brains, particularly in a portion of the brain that is known to be involved in physiological stress reactions. Perhaps most interesting, they also found that the more galanin there, the greater the rats' subsequent stress resilience.For the new research, they gathered healthy adult male and female mice and gave some of them access to running wheels in their cages. Others remained inactive. Mice generally seem to enjoy running, and those with wheels skittered through multiple miles each day. After three weeks, the scientists checked for genetic markers of galanin in the mouse brains and found them to be much higher in the runners, with greater mileage correlating with more galanin.Then the scientists stressed out all of the animals by lightly shocking their paws while the mice were restrained and could not dash away. This method does not physically harm the mice but does spook them, which the scientists confirmed by checking for stress hormones in the mice. They had soared.The next day, the scientists placed runners and inactive animals in new situations designed to worry them again, including cages with both light, open sections and dark, enclosed areas. Mice are prey animals and their natural reaction is to run for the darkness and then, as they feel safe, explore the open spaces. The runners responded now like normal, healthy mice, cautiously moving toward the light. But the sedentary animals tended to cower in the shadows, still too overwhelmed by stress to explore. They lacked resilience.Finally, the researchers confirmed that galanin played a pivotal role in the animals' stress resilience by breeding mice with unusually high levels of the substance. Those rodents reacted like the runners to the stress of foot shocks, with full-body floods of stress hormones. But the next day, like the runners, they warily braved the well-lit portions of the light-and-dark cage, not recklessly but with suitable prudence.The upshot of these experiments is that abundant galanin seems to be crucial for resilience, at least in rodents, said Rachel P. Tillage, a Ph.D. candidate in Weinshenker's lab who led the new study. And exercise increases galanin, amplifying the animals' ability to remain stalwart in the face of whatever obstacles life -- and science -- places before them.Of course, this was a mouse study and mice are not people, so it is impossible to know from this research if exercise and galanin function precisely the same way in us, or, if they do, what amounts and types of exercise might best help us to cope with stress.But regular exercise is so good for us, anyway, that deploying it now to potentially help us deal with today's uncertainties and worries "just makes good sense," Weinshenker said.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company

It seeped into homes and businesses, sneaked into cars through air conditioning vents and caused the closure of iconic locations such as Powell’s Books and the Oregon Zoo in Portland, the state's biggest city.

  • 65/82   Donald Trump warns Iran of severe retaliation if US diplomat attacked to avenge killing of top general Soleimani
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Donald Trump, the US president, warned Tehran it would face severe military retaliation if reports that it is planning to assassinate a US diplomat prove to be true. "Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!” Mr Trump tweeted on Monday evening. The threat comes a day after Politico reported that Iran was weighing up an assassination attempt against Lana Marks, the US ambassador to South Africa and long-time friend of President Trump. The reported plan is said to be in response to the killing of top Iranian commander General Qassim Soleimani by US forces in January this year. The report was based on documents seen by an anonymous US intelligence official and another who was “familiar with the issue”. Ms Marks had been made aware of credible threats to her life, they said. The reporting has not been confirmed by any other major US news organisations or the US government. Serious tensions have been rising between the two countries since the assassination of Gen Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds force, in January.

The threat comes a day after Politico reported that Iran was weighing up an assassination attempt against Lana Marks, the US ambassador to South Africa and long-time friend of President Trump. The reported plan is said to be in response to the killing of top Iranian commander General Qassim Soleimani by US forces in January this year. The report was based on documents seen by an anonymous US intelligence official and another who was “familiar with the issue”. Ms Marks had been made aware of credible threats to her life, they said. The reporting has not been confirmed by any other major US news organisations or the US government. Serious tensions have been rising between the two countries since the assassination of Gen Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds force, in January.

  • 66/82   Merkel slams anti-Semitism 'disgrace' on Jewish group's 70th
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Chancellor Angela Merkel celebrated the renaissance of Jewish life in Germany but denounced the “disgrace” of increasingly open anti-Semitism and racism as she marked the 70th anniversary Tuesday of the country's main Jewish group.  The Central Council of Jews was founded in 1950 to represent Jews who had survived the Nazi Holocaust.  Noting that many Holocaust survivors couldn't imagine a future in Germany, she said the council originally was envisioned as a provisional entity to help them emigrate.

  • 69/82   The key winners and losers of Israel's peace agreements with the UAE and Bahrain
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Israel, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates will today sign peace agreements in Washington, heralding a new era of friendship between wealthy Gulf nations and the Jewish state. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, has flown to Washington to attend the ceremony in the White House, along with his Emirati and Bahraini counterparts. Donald Trump, the US president, who oversaw the negotiations, has hailed a “historic breakthrough” for his “great friends” in the region, which he hopes will enhance his foreign policy credentials ahead of elections in November. But other Middle Eastern countries, notably Iran and Turkey, have strongly condemned the agreement, which they believe spells disaster for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and could harm their own regional ambitions. Here we look at how the so-called Abraham Accord will change the Middle East, and who will emerge from the historic deal as the key winners and losers. Israel The Jewish state arguably stands to benefit more from these agreements than any other country. For starters, they unlock dozens of trade deals in aviation, tourism, and the country’s advanced tech industry, with direct flights due to start running from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi. The Abraham Accords should also improve Mr Netanyahu’s reputation at home, as he faces mass protests against his leadership, a lengthy corruption trial and a severe second wave of coronavirus. But more importantly, the prestige of securing peace with two Arab nations, following similar accords in the past with Egypt and Jordan, leaves Israel far less isolated in a hostile region.

  • 70/82   Navalny posts hospital photo of himself; plans Russia return
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny posted a picture of himself from his hospital bed in Germany on Tuesday, looking gaunt but joking wryly about his condition and saying that he was enjoying the ability to finally breathe on his own after being poisoned with a nerve agent.  The Instagram post was the first image of the 44-year-old released since he was taken to Berlin's Charite hospital two days after falling ill on a domestic flight in Russia on Aug. 20.  Navalny had been kept in an induced coma for more than two weeks as he was treated with an antidote before hospital officials said on Sept. 7 that his condition had improved enough for him to be brought out of it.

  • 71/82   Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny 'able to breathe' unaided as he posts picture from hospital bed
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny said he was breathing normally and missing his supporters on Tuesday, in his first communication with the outside world since his poisoning almost a month ago. The 44 year old posted a picture to Instagram from the Berlin hospital where he is being treated, surrounded by his wife and two children. “Hello, this is Navalny,” he wrote in a caption. “I miss you.” In the lighthearted message, he added: “I can’t really do much but yesterday I was able to breathe on my own all day. Absolutely on my own. I didn’t have any outside help, not even the simplest valve in my throat. “I enjoyed it very much. It’s an amazing process that it is undervalued by many people. I recommend it.” Mr Navalny, Russia’s most outspoken critic of President Vladimir Putin, had been on a ventilator and in a medically induced coma for weeks after falling suddenly ill on a flight from Siberia to Moscow. In the social media image he looked thinner than usual but was sitting up in bed in a hospital gown. The previous day, doctors said his condition was improving and reported he was able to leave his bed for short periods, but did not rule out the possibility of long-term damage to his health.
