Drug makers are trying to gut a bill from Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) that would open up drug makers to Federal Trade Commission lawsuits when they’re suspected of product hopping (where drug makers introduce a new, slightly tweaked version of a drug to thwart competition) and patent thicketing (where drug makers file dozens or even hundreds of patents on a single drug to keep competitors off the market well beyond the exclusivity period awarded by the FDA).

CR Sports won a Northwest Emmy for its live sports coverage. Photo courtesy Janine BlackwellShe had only started directing earlier in the season, and now CR Sports was about to broadcast its final game of the year.Up until then, every broadcast with Gaylor as the director had some sort of glitch, she said.“I really wanted to see if I could submit something from our team,” Gaylor said, looking back on that night, working the Columbia River-Woodland district basketball playoff game. “This was our last opportunity. I really wanted to get that last shoot in, one without having technical difficulties.”Gaylor had a headache that night. Like an accomplished athlete under the weather, her focus set in to do the job.“It helped my instincts kick in,” she said.Then the crew went the extra mile.“My team entirely came through and did everything they were supposed to do,” Gaylor said.On Saturday, the CR Sports team won an Emmy for that broadcast. “It was extremely exciting. When I saw my name up there, I really couldn’t believe it. I never thought I could be a director let alone a student Emmy director for the Pacific Northwest.”Jordan Ryan was the announcer for the CR Sports team that won a Northwest Emmy last weekend.

It was joyous,” said Janine Blackwell, a teacher at Columbia River who runs CRTV. “When we did that particular production, everyone knew that it was a magical production. Everybody did what they were supposed to do. It just worked. We all knew that was our best work.”CR Sports honored for its production of a live sporting event.Joining Gaylor on the team that night: Jordan Ryan, the announcer, Tarren Orr with graphics, David Ryan on instant replay, as well as three camera operators: Keegan Duke, Emery Leifeste, and Michael Ryan. This is the second consecutive year CR Sports has won the category. Gaylor was a camera operator on last year’s winning team. Now, she is an award-winning director.The experience has taught her so much about completing a mission.“When it comes to a broadcast, or anything in this world, each member is an extremely important part to getting it done,” she said. “I relied on every single person. Every single job was so important. Parts that appear to be smaller still have a gigantic role in producing something you are proud of.”Blackwell agreed.“I can’t really say enough about how awesome these students are,” she said. “Every single one of them, just tremendous people. I know they will be able to achieve whatever dream they want in life. They are just great people.”The CRTV and CR Sports organizations are full of talent. CR Sports also was nominated for one of its football games in the fall. And CR News was nominated under the category of television magazine.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Preparing cats for your return to work Next : BIAW lawsuit would stop L&I emergency rule to fine businessesAdvertisementThis is placeholder text Columbia River broadcast team wins Emmy awardPosted by Paul ValenciaDate: Wednesday, June 10, 2020in: Sportsshare 0 last_img read more

CU-Boulder study: Beetles beat out extinction

first_imgThe rich diversity seen in modern-day beetles could have more to do with extinction resistance than a high rate of new species originations. Photo courtesy of Deena Smith. Published: March 18, 2015 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Today’s rich variety of beetles may be due to an historically low extinction rate rather than a high rate of new species emerging, according to a new study. These findings were revealed by combing through the fossil record.“Much of the work to understand why beetles are diverse has really focused on what promotes speciation,” says lead author Dena Smith, Curator of Invertebrate Paleontology and Associate Professor of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History. “By looking at the fossil history of the group, we can see that extinction, or rather lack of extinction may be just as important, if not more important, than origination. Perhaps we should be focusing more on why beetles are so resistant to extinction.” Smith’s study with her coauthor, Jonathan Marcot, Research Assistant Professor of Animal Biology at the University of Illinois, will appear in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.To fully explore the evolution of the insect order, Coleoptera, Smith and Marcot used publications that document the fossil record of beetles from international literature as far back as the early 19th century and open access database projects including the EDNA Fossil Insect Database and the Catalogue of Fossil Coleoptera. The team constructed a database of 5,553 beetle species from 221 unique locations. Given the patchy nature of the data at the species level, they performed analyses at the family level and found that the majority of families that are living today also preserved in the fossil record.The study explores beetles as far back as their origins in the Permian period, 284 million years ago. When compared to the fossil record of other animal groups such as clams, corals, and vertebrates, beetles have among the lowest family-level extinction rates ever calculated. In fact, no known families in the largest beetle subgroup, Polyphaga, go extinct in their evolutionary history. The negligible beetle extinction rate is likely caused by their flexible diets, particularly in the Polyphaga, which include algae, plants, and other animals.“There are several things about beetles that make them extremely flexible and able to adapt to changing situations,” Smith says. She points to beetles’ ability to metamorphose—a trait shared by many insects—when considering their environmental flexibility. Soft-bodied larvae vary greatly from winged, exoskeleton-ensconced adults. “This means that they can take advantage of very different types of habitats as a larva and then as an adult,” she adds. “Adult beetles can be highly mobile and research that has focused on glacial-interglacial cycles has shown that they can move quickly in response to any climate fluctuations.”The study explores beetles as far back as their origins in the Permian period, 284 million years ago. Both authors emphasize that illustrating such a history would not have been possible without the fossil record—an often underutilized resource in exploring the evolution of insects.“I think people have been hesitant to jump into studying insect fossils because there has been the misperception that they are so fragile and rarely fossilize,” Smith says. “I am hoping that this study demonstrates that the fossil record is quite good and can be used in many ways to study the evolution of this diverse and important group.”Marcot adds, “Not only have these groups gone un-studied, but there are certain things that we can learn from the fossil record that we just can’t learn any place else.”Other insect groups might be similar to Coleoptera in terms of their extinction resistance, and Smith hopes that their work will inspire other entomologists to delve into the fossil record of their favorite insect. For now she is actively working to digitize more fossil specimens, paving the way for future studies to be conducted on a finer scale. The project, known as the Fossil Insect Collaborative and funded by the National Science Foundation, is expected to make available more than half a million fossil insect specimens from the major U.S. collections—many with associated images—in a searchable online database.“Being a curator of a museum collection, I know that there are many species in our cabinets that have not yet been studied and described,” Smith says. “Once we are able to bring those specimens out of the cabinets and make them more accessible to the broader research community, I think we will be able to look at species level patterns and other really interested questions about the macroevolutionary history of insect groups.” Categories:Science & TechnologyEnvironmentNews Headlineslast_img read more

UNGA President underscores importance of yoga as people deal with increased anxiety due to COVID-19

first_img Related Posts This year the International Day of Yoga is being commemorated virtually due to the COVID-19-related restrictions in place and requirements of social distancingThe holistic approach to health, well-being provided by the practice of yoga is critical now as the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives, created loneliness and has led to increased anxiety, the UN General Assembly President has said during the virtual commemoration of the 6th International Day of Yoga.This year, the International Day of Yoga, marked on June 21, is being commemorated virtually due to the COVID-19-related restrictions in place and requirements of social distancing.“The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new reality for many of us. It has disrupted lives, created loneliness caused by social distancing as it has also led to increased anxiety caused by economic difficulties, fear of illness and worry about loved ones. This is only natural. This year’s celebration comes amidst this critical context,” UNGA President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande said in a virtual message.In commemorating the International Day of Yoga this year, he said, “We recognise the important benefits of practising yoga and its potential in helping people deal with increased anxiety due to the disruptions caused by the pandemic.”In previous years, India’s Permanent Mission commemorated the day at a grand scale on the UN premises. However, this time the mission hosted a virtual ‘Yoga for Health – Yoga at Home’ session to mark the International Yoga Day at a time when the global outbreak of COVID-19 has upended lives and disrupted lifestyles of people across the world.India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador TS Tirumurti said the global outbreak of COVID-19 has “upended lives and disrupted lifestyles’ of people across the world.“Studies indicate a rise in depression and anxiety among people due to the difficulty in adapting to such lifestyle changes,” he said, adding that there is a growing trend of people from many parts of the world-embracing yoga to fight social isolation and depression during the pandemic.Tirumurti said to commemorate Yoga Day this year under the theme of ‘Yoga for Health, Yoga for Home’, the endeavour has been to put together simple yoga modules, carefully designed by experienced yoga gurus, that can be practised from home by all age groups.Muhammad-Bande said the celebration of the International Day of Yoga is a ‘unique opportunity’ to recognise the holistic approach to health and well being provided by the practice of yoga especially in times like this.“Global health is a long-term objective that requires close international cooperation and exchange of best practices. Health no longer only implies the condition of not being sick. It’s also about being actively well,” he said, adding that multiple studies have confirmed the interdependent mental and physical benefits of yoga.“The meaning of yoga is most commonly interpreted as a union – the union of the mind and the body – but it also signifies the interconnectedness of the human body and spirit to all the elements of the world that surrounds us,” he said.The specially-designed module included a session by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on ‘Yoga for Respiratory Health’ where the spiritual leader spoke about the need and importance of maintaining an inner balance during these challenging times.In a 15 minute session ‘Yoga for Soothing the Heart’, Yoga Guru Kishor Chandra from the Bhakti Center led followers through asanas and pranayama that will help balance and soothe the heart. A meditation session from Sahaj Yoga on a guided meditation exercise aimed to relax the mind was also part of the module.Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev said the coronavirus pandemic is ‘one of the biggest challenges that we as a generation have faced.’“It is most important that we as human beings function at our best. Our physical self, our intellect, our emotional balance everything should be at its best, our innate wisdom must function now because now there is a crisis outside. You cannot afford to create a crisis within you, ” he said.The spiritual leader underscored that during this moment of pandemic and in the post-pandemic world, “one of the biggest challenges will be the psychological crisis that human beings will face. When a problem is thrown at us, we should not become a problem. This is very important. There is no better way to approach life than through the yogic system.”Tirumurti said the celebration of the International Day of Yoga is a testimony to Yoga’s global appeal and the substantial medical and scientific evidence that acknowledges the efficacy of yoga in promoting healthy and sustainable lifestyles.Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Tirumurti said the very nature of yoga techniques, combined with proper breathing techniques and meditation, have been found to reduce the impact of stress, help with anxiety and depression, boost energy and provide equanimity to one’s existence.

Disabilities Council Disburses $3 Million in Economic Empowerment Grants

first_imgThe Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities (JCPD) has disbursed more than $3 million, to 46 persons from the disabled community through its economic empowerment grant.Executive Director of JCPD, Christine Hendricks told JIS News that the grants are given to disabled persons who have, or are in the process of starting a business that will “facilitate economic development and independence”.She added, that the grants “assist disabled persons to better their lives because so many persons with disabilities are unemployed.”One of the recipients of the economic empowerment grant, chicken farmer, Uken Thomas told JIS News that the $75,000 he received will go a far way in helping to sustain his business.Mr. Thomas who has been visually impaired since childhood, has been a chicken farmer for more than 35 years, and admits to facing several challenges prior to getting financial assistance from the JCPD.“Before I got the grant, I was experiencing challenges because I could not afford to adequately care for my chickens. Sometimes, I had to kill them before they were mature because I did not have the money to feed them,” he said.The Portland resident and member of the JCPD also expressed gratitude for the work of the Council. He encouraged other persons with disabilities to become a part of the Disabilities Council.“Do so, because it will improve your life,” Mr. Thomas stressed.Recipients also received basic training from the Jamaica Business Development Corporation in the areas of costing, book keeping, and marketing.Ms. Hendricks further indicated that more than $1 million in grants will be issued to other qualified applicants later this month.To qualify for grants persons must first register with the JCPD and submit an application, which will be reviewed by the sub-committee of the national advisory board. Persons can also apply for the assistive aid grant, to purchase equipment or instruments that will make them more independent.Under the facility, an individual can receive up to $150,000, while groups can get a maximum of $450,000. Since 2009 the Government has contributed $15 million annually, to the grant.

News / European freighters compete for Canada-LatAm traffic as air cargo yields ‘go crazy’

first_img© Gabriel Petrescu | Air Canada (AC) is facing some odd competition for its new freighter operation to Latin America.In tandem with Canadian all-cargo carrier Cargojet, AC launched a weekly freighter run from Toronto to Bogota and Lima via Atlanta in June, alongside a twice-weekly freighter from Toronto via Dallas/Ft Worth to Mexico City.Canadian forwarders have welcomed the move. For years the absence of maindeck lift to Latin America and scant direct bellyhold capacity has forced them to truck their cargo headed for the region to US gateways, notably Miami.But AC’s new venture does not face competition only from US and Latin American carriers, European airlines are also vying for Canada-South America flows.“All European carriers do that – at rates lower than we offer,” said Joe Lawrence, president of GSA Airline Services International. His company, which represents Avianca in Canada and also sells lift on UPS, offers direct flights to Latin America on narrowbody planes, widebody bellyhold lift out of New York and freighter capacity on Avianca ex-Miami and out of multiple Canadian points on UPS freighters via Louisville and Miami.The same transatlantic game is being played out of the US.“We regularly use TAP (Air Portugal) to Brazil from New York. Go figure!” said Joe Delli Carpini, president of New York-based forwarder Cargo Tours. “The routing via Europe to South America is not new.”Rich Zablocki, vice president, global product development, North America, at CEVA Logistics, noted that prices to South America out of Florida were at all-time lows.“The real challenge is the dismal economic conditions for air cargo into and out of South and Central America,” he said, pointing to the troubles experienced by LATAM Group.But one senior US forwarder said: “LATAM runs an excellent group of carriers and provides premium service in the market, but margins are slim and there is very strong competition from the Avianca group as well as from the others, such as UPS Airlines, Atlas, Amerijet and many other good Latin America-based cargo carriers.”For carriers serving Latin America, the downturn in Brazil has been compounded by the expansion of the Middle Eastern carriers into Latin America bypassing Miami, which has taken a toll on southbound load factors, added Mr Zablocki.“New and expanding entrants from the Middle East and from Russia are chasing market share and are very aggressive in their pricing,” he said.“We’ve definitely seen a decrease in traffic into Brazil,” said Mr Lawrence.According to some forwarders, imports into other Latin American countries have also been affected by the rise of the dollar against their own currencies as demand for their commodities slowed down, but Brazil has fared significantly worse than the other countries in the region, bar Venezuela.Besides the dismal state of Brazil’s imports, the yo-yo routing via Europe reflects the struggle for carriers to fill their flights from North America across the Atlantic. One forwarder described the pricing to Europe as disappointing. He suggests the airlines are trying to improve their gross revenues.“Airlines are doing crazy things on yields,” commented Mr Lawrence.According to one source, rates from Canada to Europe have dropped to C$0.35-0.40 per kg (US$0.27-0.31).For all their zeal in pushing for lower pricing, shippers are not the driving force in such transatlantic routings, Mr Zablocki says.“In most cases it’s not the client asking for it. It is really coming from the airlines,” he said.For its part, Air Canada Cargo has signalled that Canada-Latin America traffic is only part of the business it has set its sights on for the new freighter.Lise-Marie Turpin, vice president of cargo, said the emphasis was on leveraging the carrier’s entire network, feeding in traffic to and from Europe and Asia.
