Scientists Remove Genes from Human Embryo for First Time

first_imgStay on target Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend While it’s easy to think that humans are knee-deep in the wilds of genetic engineering, but we’re actually only in its nascent stages with new milestones coming all the time.That said, a team of researchers has announced that they’ve used CRISPR on human embryos for the first time. Their work centers on OCT4, a specialized protein that codes for an important part of embryonic development. But, the real headline is that we’ve taken a new step, as a species, towards actively altering human genetic information while in development. CRISPR has been used in trials on living adults before, but it only targeted small parts of the body.This batch of experiments, however, was the first to slice up human embryonic DNA with the technique. Kathy Niakin, a developmental biologist based in London was the lead author on the paper. Her team used CRISPER to edit OCT4 in human zygotes — a stage of development that is, technically, pre-embryonic. These were all left over from in vitro treatments and donated by couples.The experiments, published this week in Nature, demonstrated that OCT4 plays a vital role in development. Without functioning copies of the gene, the developing embryos failed to develop some critical cell types, like placental cells, that are necessary for development.Again, that discovery, while cool, takes a back seat to the discovery that CRISPR works for studying early development. This could give us a new route to study everything from congenital diseases and birth defects, to how all of the intricate steps that create us actually happen. As Science Magazine notes, it’s also a great test for the UK’s new embryo research regulations.The new plans require any curious scientists to petition the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority to get a license. Niakan sent in her application in 2015, detailing her plan and her intention to use CRISPR to study the role of OCT4 in development. And it looks like this went better than anyone could have hoped.“We conclude that CRISPR… is a powerful method for investigating gene function in the context of human development,” the paper declares. Like it or not, the future is here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

PERF report recommends 67 more APD patrol positions

first_imgA new report on policing in Anchorage says the city needs dramatically more officers to meet its public safety goals.Download Audio“This bolsters what we’ve been saying,” Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz said.Berkowitz campaigned on building up the Anchorage Police Department’s staffing levels after declines during the Sullivan Administration.The new report by the non-partisan policy group the Police Executive Research Forum—or PERF as it’s more commonly known—is an update to a similar study from 2010. It concludes that if Anchorage wants to meet its community policing goals, officers need 40 percent of their work time to be “un-obligated.”That means patrol officers are building relationships and following up on information, rather than speeding from one call to another.The report notes that reduced staffing levels the last few years may have shifted the burden of policing less severe infractions like property theft to store managers and private groups.“There’s a false economy that comes from not having the right-sized police force,” Berkowitz said. “And the false economy comes because businesses have to step into the breach to pay for private security. There are opportunity costs for private citizens. And crime is very expensive. So the cheapest thing we can do is make sure we have a police force that’s capable of doing the job of public safety.”Getting that capacity means adding 67 patrol positions to the 166 that currently exist. The report recommends the department grow to 446 positions once civilian and detective jobs are added, as well.Berkowitz says this year’s budget begins paying for rebuilding and sustaining that larger police force.“Ya know, there’s this thing about math: we’ve got to go through 400 before we can get to 446,” he said. “But the goal isn’t a number, the goal is to have enough officers to make sure enough officers to do the job it should be done.”A spokesman for the union representing public safety officers says the Administration’s actions have been encouraging, even as the department continues to face challenges with recruitment and retention.last_img read more

Turkey sacks 18500 state employees in new decree

first_imgPresident of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan greets deputies during a meeting on the First Legislative Year of the 27th Term of Grand National Assembly of Turkey (TBMM) in Ankara, Turkey on 7 July 2018. Photo: AFPTurkish authorities ordered the dismissal of more than 18,500 state employees including police officers, soldiers and academics, in a decree published on Sunday.The Official Gazette said 18,632 people had been sacked including 8,998 police officers in the emergency decree over suspected links to terror organisations and groups that “act against national security”.Some 3,077 army soldiers were also dismissed as well as 1,949 air force personnel and 1,126 from the naval forces.Another 1,052 civil servants from the justice ministry and linked institutions have been fired as well as 649 from the gendarmerie and 192 from the coast guard.Authorities also sacked 199 academics, according to the new decree, while 148 state employees from the military and ministries were reinstated.Turkey has been under a state of emergency since the July 2016 attempted overthrow of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.Turkish media dubbed the decree as the “last” with officials indicating the state of emergency could end as early as Monday.The emergency has been renewed seven times and the latest period is officially due to end on 19 July.Over 110,000 public sector employees have been removed previously from their jobs via emergency decrees since July 2016 while tens of thousands more have been suspended in a crackdown criticised by Ankara’s Western allies.Turkey accuses US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen of orchestrating the attempted coup. The majority of those fired under the emergency are accused of links to Gulen.The government refers to the movement as the “Fethullah Terrorist Organisation”. Gulen strongly denies any coup links and insists his movement is a peaceful organisation.Sunday’s decree shut down 12 associations across the country as well as three newspapers and a television channel.Human rights defenders including Amnesty International have lambasted the purges as arbitrary but Turkey says they are necessary to remove the Gulen movement’s infiltration of state bodies.Earlier this year, the government said more than 77,000 people had been arrested over alleged links to Gulen.last_img read more

Black Caucus Foundation Discusses SchooltoPrison Pipeline

first_imgThe Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CNCF) in conjunction with the Annie E. Casey Foundation held a forum: “Reversing the School-to-Prison Pipeline for African Americans and Minorities: Comprehensive Programs, Practices and Policy Solutions.” The event took place March 18 on Capitol Hill.U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), Congressional Black Caucus chairman, spoke passionately about the need for lawmakers, policymakers, and the public to understand the school-to-prison pipeline and how it negatively impacts people of color. “The reform of the criminal justice system is the centerpiece of our agenda,” Butterfield said. “The criminal justice system is broken and is in need of reform and repair. The way things are going, we are creating a generation of unemployable men and women for a lifetime.”The U.S. Department of Education reports that African-American and Latino students are significantly more likely than their classmates to be suspended or expelled, 3.5 times and 1.5 times respectively. The department’s statistics reveal that although Black students represent 16 percent of student enrollment in the country, they represent 27 percent of students referred to law enforcement and 31 percent of students subjected to a school-related arrest.In addition, various studies have found that low-income students are consistently over-represented in the use of out-of-school suspension and even middle and upper income Blacks students are more likely to be suspended than their peers at the same demographic level. Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.), considered the expert in Congress on issues relating to Black males and incarceration, said the school-to-prison pipeline is indicative of larger problems in the country.“Our country is the most incarcerated nation on Earth,” Davis said. “Black boys drop out [in terms of educational focus] by the third grade and they have never had an African-American teacher or seen an African-American male reading a book. To many Black boys, education is seen as a girl kind of thing and Blacks students are subject to horrific approaches to discipline.”Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), leading the CBCF’s effort to address poverty, said the House Democratic leadership is committed to ending the school-to-prison pipeline and noted that income inequality among the races must be recognized as a symptom. “Black students suffer from the highest poverty rates of anyone and they are three times as likely to be poor than Whites,” Lee said.House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) agrees with Lee in a wider context. “The middle class is either shrinking or standing still,” Hoyer said. “People must have the means to become middle class.”While Debra Rowe, executive director of Returning Citizens United, didn’t attend the forum she is familiar with the problem. “I know about the school-to-prison pipeline but D.C. needs to acknowledge it,” Rowe said. “Many teachers in the schools discipline children without understanding that the reason the child may be acting up is because of a medical disorder.”D.C. Council member David Grosso (I-At Large) has sponsored hearings and events that talk about the school-to-prison pipeline. In response to unreasonable school suspensions, he is the chief sponsor of the “Pre-K Student Discipline Amendment Act of 2014” that would prohibit suspension or expulsion of a student in pre-kindergarten age from any city-funded educational program. Grosso’s bill has the support of all council members.Rowe endorses D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s proposal for an all-boys school to help stem the pipeline. She also said that there is a widespread misconception about young people in the District’s school system. “Kids are automatically looked at as bad if they come from a bad neighborhood or go to a bad school and that is not the case,” she said. “Plus, kids are expelled from school as young as 13 and 14-years-old when they act up but there is no follow-up by the school system as to why the child is misbehaving.”last_img read more

(AP) — Jordan Nwora scored 18 of his 20 points before halftime, Malik Williams finished with a career-high 19 and Louisville overcame a 15-point deficit to rout Miami 90-73 on Sunday night to give coach Chris Mack his initial Atlantic Coast Conference victory.The Cardinals (10-4, 1-0 ACC) battled back from a slow start against the short-handed Hurricanes to only trail 41-40 at halftime. Louisville started the second half just 5 of 13 from the field but eventually earned a 53-50 lead when Christen Cunningham made consecutive 3-pointers.Williams – who topped his previous career best of 17 points – and Ryan McMahon (12 points) soon found their stroke to help the Cardinals build an 18-point lead. Louisville also shot 48 percent to remain unbeaten in five home meetings against Miami (8-6, 0-2).Dejan Vasiljevic and Zach Johnson each had 19 points and Chris Lykes 18 for the `Canes, who shot 43 percent and missed another chance to earn its first Power 5 victory this season.BIG PICTUREMiami: Much like they did against N.C. State on Thursday, the Hurricanes jumped out to a double-digit lead behind a quick pace and sharp shooting, especially from beyond the arc. But fouls and depth quickly became a problem by halftime with Anthony Mack’s three fouls leading four players with at least two apiece. Nobody fouled out, but the ending was familiar as Louisville wore them down in the second half.Louisville: The Cardinals started sluggish after a weeklong break and needed the whole half to match Miami in pace and on the scoreboard. They eventually finished 13 of 31 from behind the arc (42 percent) and edged the `Canes 39-35 on the glass thanks to a little more depth. Dwayne Sutton added 13 points as five scored in double figures.UP NEXTMiami stays on the road to visit in-state rival Florida State on Wednesday.Louisville begins a two-game road stretch on Wednesday at Pittsburgh.center_img Malik Williams Postgame Preview Buy Tickets Live Stats Chris Mack Postgame Press Conference Postgame Quotes Photo Gallery PDF Box Score Print Friendly Versionlast_img

Physicists offer countermeasure to new quantum eavesdropping attack

first_img Quantum eavesdropper steals quantum keys In the attack, Eve sends light pulses of one of four polarizations (horizontal, vertical, +45°, or -45°) to blind three of Bob’s four detectors, each of which can detect one type of polarization. If a detection event occurs, then Eve knows it had to have happened in the detector that can detect the polarization opposite from that which she used. For example, if she sends out pulses with vertical polarization, the detectors corresponding to vertical, +45°, and -45° will see the light, while the horizontal detector won’t. So all detectors except the horizontal one are blind. If a click occurs in Bob’s following time window, it can only have happened in the horizontal detector. In this way, Eve can gain information about the key bits being sent to Bob’s detectors. By tuning the intensity of the blinding pulses, Eve can tune information about the key. In experiments, the scientists demonstrated that dim pulses containing only a few photons can determine almost all of the key (in this case, the emblem of the University of Munich). On average, an eavesdropper needs fewer than 20 photons per binding pulse to gather over 98% of the key information. Since the error between Alice and Bob does not increase during the attack, they are not aware of the eavesdropper’s presence.As simple as this attack is, the scientists explain that a defense against it is even simpler. Bob could monitor the status of his single-photon detectors to ensure that the detection efficiency has not been compromised. When generating their shared key, Alice and Bob would only use detection events in which all detectors were active. So even if Eve had been blinding Bob’s detectors and intercepting the key bits, those bits would not end up being used, and the attack would fail.“In my opinion, actual systems can generally never be proven to be secure,” Weier told PhysOrg.com. “In this respect, QKD isn’t better than its classical counterpart. But scientists are working on bridging the gap between theoretic models and real systems. Ideally one can build a provably secure model that describes the actual QKD system including all (known) implementation imperfections. If the theoretic model gave some bounds with regard to the imperfections, one would get as close to perfect security as possible.” Citation: Physicists offer countermeasure to new quantum eavesdropping attack (2011, July 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-07-physicists-countermeasure-quantum-eavesdropping.html Using the “dead time” attack, Eve can recover Alice and Bob’s secret key, the emblem of the University of Munich, without being detected.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (PhysOrg.com) — As early communications systems using quantum cryptography become commercially available, physicists have been investigating new types of security attacks in an effort to defend against them. In a recent study, researchers have identified and demonstrated a new, highly effective way to eavesdrop on a quantum key distribution (QKD) system that involves blinding the receiver’s detector during the “dead time” of single-photon detectors. For the first time, the eavesdropper does not even have to intercept the quantum channel to compromise the system’s security, making this attack technologically very simple. The physicists, Henning Weier from the Ludwig Maximillians University of Munich and Qutools GmbH in Munich, and coauthors, have published their study on the new quantum eavesdropping attack, along with a countermeasure to prevent it, in a recent issue of the New Journal of Physics.In QKD systems, two communicating users (Alice and Bob) produce a secret key of qubits, and then use that key to encrypt and decrypt messages. If an eavesdropper (Eve) can uncover this key without being caught, she too can decrypt the messages.As the physicists explain, theoretical proofs have shown that the ideal QKD protocol is completely secure; that is, the amount of information that an eavesdropper can steal can be quantified and made negligibly small. If Eve were to attack the system, Alice and Bob could detect her presence due to the high error rate, and no secure key will be made. However, when QKD systems are implemented in practice, they can be vulnerable to certain types of attacks, depending on the hardware used.The attack described here could be used to intercept the key as Alice and Bob are creating it together. This scheme and similar ones work in almost any QKD system since they exploit a feature common to almost all single-photon detectors, which is the dead time. After a detection event, single-photon detectors are rendered inactive for a period of time that can range from less than a nanosecond to a few tens of microseconds. During this dead time, detectors cannot detect incoming photons.Taking advantage of this dead time, Eve can send light pulses into the quantum channel to partially blind Bob’s (the receiver’s) photon detectors. Timing these pulses is critical, since they must be sent shortly before Bob’s “time window.” As the scientists explained, Bob knows roughly when the photons from Alice should arrive, and accounts for only those photons that come during a narrow time interval around the expected arrival time. The time window allows Bob to filter out background photons (especially during the day) and reduce the error rate significantly. In this case, however, Eve can take advantage of this time window to prevent Bob from noticing her pulses.last_img read more

Rose Valley investors can approach asset disposal committee for refund Official

first_imgKolkata: The Enforcement Directorate (ED), probing into the multi-crore Rose Valley ponzi scam case, has urged the duped investors to approach the asset disposal committee appointed by the Calcutta High Court to recover their dues. According to an ED official, the investors, who were promised high returns on their investments by the ponzi firm, are free to approach the committee which was set up following a high court suggestion in 2015. “In the Rose Valley ponzi scam case, so far the ED has attached properties worth Rs 4,600 crore,” an ED official, who did not wish to be named, told PTI. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose The enforcement agency attached Rese Valley properties worth Rs 2,300 crore in one go, including two dozen hotels and resorts, which till date is the single largest attachment in the case. The assets are to be sold off via public auction and the proceeds would be used to repay the investors. The ED had registered an FIR against the firm, its Chairman Gautam Kundu and others in 2014 under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Kundu was arrested by the agency in Kolkata in 2015. Multiple charge sheets have been filed in the courts in Kolkata and Bhubaneswar by the ED in the case. The group had allegedly floated a total of 27 companies to run the chit fund operations, of which only 6 were active.last_img read more

distinction between before and after By Adrian ChoAug 17 2018 1:00 PM In the everyday world events occur in a definite order—your alarm clock rings before you wake up or vice versa However a new experiment shows that when fiddling with a photon it can be impossible to say in which order two events occur obliterating our common sense notion of before and after and potentially muddying the concept of causality Known as a quantum switch the setup could provide a useful new tool in budding quantum information technologies Quantum mechanics already torpedoes our notion that an object can be in only one place at a time Thanks to the weirdness of quantum mechanics a tiny particle like an electron can be in multiple places at once The quantum switch achieves something similar for two events A and B showing that A can occur before B and B can occur before A “I’m very excited to see people realizing our idea with an actual experiment” says Giulio Chiribella of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom one of the theorists who in 2009 first proposed the concept To demonstrate the effect Andrew White a physicist at The University of Queensland in Brisbane Australia and his colleagues shot photons through an apparatus called an interferometer in which two paths diverge and rejoin A photon is both a particle and an electromagnetic wave that can be polarized to wriggle horizontally or vertically The researchers set their rig so that if the photon is vertically polarized it will first take the rig’s left path and then racing back and entering the apparatus through a different “port” take the right path If the photon is horizontally polarized it will take the right path and then the left But quantum mechanics allows the photon to be polarized both ways at once making it diagonally polarized When a diagonally polarized photon enters the apparatus the quantum wave describing it splits into vertically polarized and horizontally polarized parts and the photon takes both paths at once before the waves merge again at the exit of the apparatus When the photon repeats the trip it again takes both paths although either part of the photon’s quantum wave takes each path only once It is thus impossible to say in which order the photon has taken the path The tricky part is proving what’s going on inside the experiment Physicists can’t just insert detectors that will reveal where in the maze the photon may be Thanks again to quantum weirdness such a definitive measurement would “collapse” the photon’s delicate two-paths-at-once condition and ruin the experiment Instead the physicists must find some more gentle way to imprint on the photon some trace that it went down a particular path To do that they take advantage of the fact that in addition to a polarization each pulse of light has a shape or spatial distribution The experimenters can gently change that shape by putting lenses and other optical elements in each path to fiddle with the passing photon Those changes are the actual “events” in the experiment and depending on which of a small set of changes the physicists perform along each path the polarization of the photon can flip from one diagonal direction to the other as the two halves of its quantum wave recombine That subtle connection is the key to the experiment Over many trials the physicists implement different combinations of shape changes in the two paths like choosing among a handful of setting for two different knobs If each photon definitely takes one path or the other first the correlations between the knob setting and the photon’s final polarization must obey certain limits However if both take both paths first the correlations will exceed those limits which is exactly what the physicists observe in a paper in press at Physical Review Letters As it stands the experimenters chose the operations in the two paths independently However in principle the experiment shows that quantum mechanics allows for the possibility that the two processes could trigger each other says Cyril Branciard a physicist at the NEL Institute in Grenoble France who worked on the experiment “One may have situations where some event A causes another event B while at the same time B causes A” In 2015 physicists at the University of Vienna performed a similar experiment However the new experiment overcomes technical limitations in the first experiment and may be easier to scale up for practical applications says Caslav Brukner a theorist at the University of Vienna who worked on the previous experiment The quantum switch could have applications in budding technologies that for example manipulate and transmit information encoded in the quantum states of individual photons and other quantum particles Such devices must pass particles through quantum channels such as optical fibers that invariably suffer from noise But even if two such channels are too noisy to transmit quantum information they could in principle be fashioned into a quantum switch to enable the information to flow Jacquiline Romero a quantum physicist and member of the Queensland team says “You introduce indefinite
