first_img“Scotland need to play at their best all the time to win, so our fans are hugely important. They were phenomenal in that 2006 victory and got louder and louder. When you play France you have to expect the unexpected. They’re a big, physical team with huge men but they don’t always play like that. They can play a quick game and always use the ball well.“They’ve got a new coach and though some people will say it was a positive that they got to the World Cup final, they’ll want to draw a line in the sand. Despite their positive result, it’s still a mystery about the atmosphere in their squad at that time.“Scotland need to start well and put France under pressure. And they will also have to defend very well in that game.” PARIS, FRANCE – FEBRUARY 05: Richie Gray of Scotland attempts to break through the French defences during the RBS 6 Nations Championship match between France and Scotland at the Stade De France on February 5, 2011 in Paris, France. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Richie Gray breaks through the French defences during a 2011 Six Nations matchScotland host France in round three of the Six Nations in what promises to be a feisty encounter at Murrayfield, writes Bea Asprey.The last time the Scots came out on top in the fixture was on the opening weekend of the 2006 tournament, when France went in as heavy favourites. Chris Paterson scored ten of Scotland’s points in a 20-16 win that day, but there was no time to savour the achievement.“It was the first game and it was played on a Sunday, and we came from under the radar,” says Paterson, the Scots’ only Test centurion. “There were some changes and new caps in the France team, and we were the more settled side on the day.“We scored two tries, one of which was from a lineout, and that set the tone for a confrontational game. We were playing in Cardiff six days later so there was no hint of a celebration.”Paterson recently retired from Test rugby, so he’ll be watching the action from what he hopes will be a packed stand. The presence of a 16th man would be a great fillip to the team in what the Edinburgh man knows will be a very tough game.

Please enter your email address here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. By Mark Atkinson, Professor of Medicine, University of Florida and first published on theconversation.com.There are about 100 trillion cells that make up the human body. A new mega science endeavor will catalog and image each of the 200 or more types of cells from the 80 known organs and identify the genes that are active in these cells.This new effort follows on the heels of the Human Genome Project that engulfed biology during the 1990s and early 2000s. Now scientists have conceived a new and exciting challenge: to create a cellular map of the entire human body, a project called the Human BioMolecular Atlas Program, or HuBMAP. The University of Florida is one of five participating tissue mapping centers. Here at the UF Center, we are charged with mapping the thymus, lymph node, and spleen – all key components of the immune system.The lymphatic system, which includes the thymus (yellow), spleen (brown) and lymph nodes connected by the lymphatic vessels (green), will be the subject of investigation for University of Florida’s HuBMAP investigators. S K Chavan/Shutterstock.comI have been studying Type 1 diabetes, or juvenile diabetes, for nearly 35 years and along with my other colleagues at the UF Diabetes Institute have been trying to find a way to prevent and cure the disease. This has been a challenge as until recently because we didn’t know what caused Type 1 diabetes.Our goal as a tissue mapping center is to identify the unique types of cells, which proteins they produce and which genes are turned on, and build a virtual three-dimensional model of each organ. This map will inform the research of many diseases, including Type 1 diabetes.Why is understanding the causes of Type 1 diabetes important?We know that Type 1 diabetes is a so-called “autoimmune disorder.” In Type 1 diabetes, immune cells are known as “T lymphocytes” are thought to destroy the pancreatic beta cells that are responsible for producing insulin, which regulates the level of sugar in our blood.Just over a decade ago, frustrated by the inability to prevent and cure the disease, I started an initiative to collect human pancreases from organ donors with Type 1 diabetes as well as those without the disease. The latter group was collected to provide an understanding of a “normal” healthy pancreas. To date, we have collected the pancreas from more than 500 individuals. We have distributed these tissues to some 230 projects in 21 countries around the world. The results of this effort have led to new discoveries that have rewritten our understanding of how this disease develops.Diabetes mellitus Type 1. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system erroneously destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas, which leads to high glucose levels in the blood, called hyperglycemia. Though Type 1 diabetes represents only 10 percent of all diabetes worldwide, it is most often diagnosed in children and adolescents; hence, patients face a lifelong need for insulin. At the onset, patients generally experience high blood sugar, unexplained weight loss, and excessive thirst and hunger. Even with appropriate treatment, most patients eventually develop complications affecting the kidneys, feet, eyes and cardiovascular health. Designua/Shuterstock.comPatients diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, some 25,000 per year in the U.S. alone, face a lifelong dependence on daily insulin injections in order to survive and have a high risk of developing long-term medical complications including blindness, kidney disease, numb feet, limb amputations, and cardiovascular disease. Today, it is estimated that nearly 1.25 million people in the U.S. live with this disorder.As upsetting as these complications are for individuals with the disease, perhaps even more daunting are the many daily lifestyle factors that must be controlled or accounted for to keep the disease in check: monitoring carbohydrates, estimating exercise, evaluating blood sugar levels, and administering insulin to avoid both high and low blood glucose levels. These represent just a few of the daily disease associated challenges.For these reasons, the goal of our collective research efforts at the UF Diabetes Institute has always been to understand what causes this disease. Knowing that would enable us to predict who is at risk, identify ways to prevent the progression of the disease, and develop a curative therapy.Why study these organs?Type 1 diabetes is but one of more than 80 known autoimmune diseases that, for reasons unknown, the immune system turns against itself. Beyond autoimmunity, immune responses are also a key constituent to health in terms of fighting cancer and infectious disease. From our experience studying the pancreas and Type 1 diabetes, we see great strides in understanding the role of immunity in each of these settings through mapping. It will allow for a deep dive of how the immune system works.In a healthy individual, T cells only become active when responding to infection or cancer cells. But in those predisposed to the autoimmune disease, certain T cells can become erroneously activated by “self” proteins, leading them to destroy healthy tissue.In other circumstances – like cancer or an infectious disease – the immune system fails to provide a robust enough response to be effective. Or cells of the immune system proliferate uncontrollably, leading to blood and lymphatic cancers like lymphomas and leukemias. This is why the thymus, spleen and lymph node are tissues of interest for those studying the healthy human immune system. Researchers need to understand the healthy baseline for all these organs so that we can recognize when things begin to malfunction and change, leading to autoimmune disease, cancer, and infectious disease. Expressed another way, we first need to understand what constitutes the normal lymphatic system throughout the human lifespan.Why is defining normal important?Harry Nick of the University of Florida describes HuBMAP.You might wonder where exactly we get these normal cells. As we have done over the past 11 years, we will obtain transplant-grade human tissues from deceased organ donors through Organ Procurement Organizations, after a family member or legal executor provides informed consent. Given at a time of grieving, these precious anatomical gifts, which in the case of the spleen, thymus and lymph node, are not usable for lifesaving transplantation procedures, provide an inimitable resource for scientific investigation and discovery.Only tissues considered “normal” – unaffected by known or observable pathologies – will be included in these initial studies. We will be collecting tissues from donors ranging from infants to adults up to 70 years old. We hope this will provide insights into how age alters the types and health of all the cells in each organ.At the UF Diabetes Institute, a multidisciplinary team including cellular and molecular biologists, hematopathologists who study clinical lymphatic samples, biomedical engineers, immunologists, and many others will collaborate for the HuBMAP program. Indeed, the UF tissue mapping center will collaborate extensively with a global network of experts in cutting-edge microscopy and data collection.We are establishing an imaging pipeline to detect dozens of protein and RNA molecules that characterize nerve, blood vessel, the supportive tissue known as stroma, and immune cells from slices of tissue, using eight different forms of microscopy.Within HuBMAP’s first two years, we plan to map the spleen, thymus and lymph node from 11 organ donors.We expect that the resulting data will reveal new cell types, molecular and cellular structures, cell-cell interactions and their functional implications in human anatomy and physiology. Hence, the high-resolution, three-dimensional Human BioMolecular Atlas Program is expected to facilitate discovery.As I hit my late 50s in life, the number of colleagues, friends and family members that are impacted by disease increases annually. I also recently became a grandfather. I would like to think what we propose to do will have a dramatic impact on human health for both current and future generations. That would be a legacy gift.

The formal and stylistic chaos of individual buildings is in opposition to the spatial order of the street. This divergence influenced the design concept, which favored the spatial context over the formal one, ie. it was more important to match to the order of the street (compact shape, emphasized building line, proportions of the edifice) than the form of the building itself. Regardless of it, the new house will always be just the next component of the existing stylistic chaos.Save this picture!© Bartłomiej OsińskiThe limited site area, as well as the south side access, were the two main factors which determined the final house position within the plot. Placing the building maximally close to 3 of the site boundaries allowed to enlarge the garden as much as possible and therefore maximize the limited development potential of the site.Save this picture!© Bartłomiej OsińskiThe compact and sustainable form of the proposed building encloses from the street and opens onto the west facing garden. The hipped form of the roof was dictated by the almost square dwelling house footprint. A simple pyramid roof underwent sculptural transformation. Firstly, the top of the roof was ’dragged’ towards the garden to achieve a visual set back from the adjacent property, then the roof was inclined towards the street to emphasize the existing building line, and finally the rooftop was ‘cut off’ to form a large (2.5m x 1.8m) skylight, enabling the daylight to penetrate deep down inside the house.Save this picture!SectionThe form of the house varies from the buildings in close vicinity. The lack of decorative features or pastel colored elevations draw attention to the radical form and dark asphalt color. The building is a manifesto of both proportion over decorative features and urban planning over a building form.Save this picture!© Bartłomiej OsińskiThe homogenous appearance of the building has been achieved thanks to externally applied sprayed polyurethane layer. The technology, typically used in industrial construction, has been used in such a way in Poland for the first time. The proposed house consists of two ‘faces’: dark and inaccessible from the outside and bright and spacious from the inside.

Their new CEO, Jeff Troike, says that, despite a tough agricultural economy, they are bullish on agriculture, “It is an exciting time to be in agriculture with all the new technology and the new genetics. We think this will help drive down the cost per acre.”Troike believes that the expanded organization, which serves over 35 counties in IN and MI, will have the resources to help producers reduce their cost of production. “Lower the cost of production per bushel produced, that does not always mean the lowest cost per acre,” he said. “We believe we have the people, the programs, and the products to help our farmers increase their productivity per acre.”Troike said the organization is also committed to helping farmers farm more sustainably, “We have producers who are doing the right thing. They are using cover crops; they are using variable rate technology; they are using nitrogen stabilizers and tissue sampling to know what the crop needs and not just putting on products. We even have growers who are using irrigation management so they know when to put water on and when not to. All these things are helping the environment.” He added this is not only an issue that farmers care about but it is a consumer issue as well.Troike is optimistic about continued growth in the Indiana economy with the solid support and resources of state government.

first_imgFlagler County Sheriff’s Office(PALM COAST, Fla.) — A teacher in Florida is facing a charge of simple battery, after cellphone footage taken during class showed him lifting a 14-year-old student out of his desk and shoving him out of the classroom.The incident occurred Tuesday at Buddy Taylor Middle School in Palm Coast, Florida, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.Jeffrey Paffumi, 47, said that the student was “being disobedient” and had “refused to turn down his music when asked to,” according to the charging document. The teacher, who’s been with the district since 2005, said that when he attempted to pause the student’s music, the teen “slapped his hand away and turned the music back on.”Paffumi told police the student also had called him a “cracker.”In the video, taken by an unknown student but shared with police, Paffumi can been grabbing the teen who is sitting at a desk and lifting him out of his seat.“Show me how tough you are. Wanna call me a ‘cracker,’” he says to the teen as he carries him toward the classroom door.“Mr. Paffumi grabs (the teen) with his right arm and lifts him out of the chair. Mr. Paffumi then hooks Derrick’s right arm with his left arm … (and) lifts (the teen) off his feet and carries him across the classroom,” the charging document said, according to an officer who watched the video. “Once he was outside the classroom, Mr. Paffumi then put (the teen) down and shoved him away from the doorway towards the hall.”Paffumi told authorities that he’d treated the teen like an “unruly student and grabbed him safely so he couldn’t hurt himself or anybody else,” according to the charging document.He also told police that “once outside the door, he pushed (the teen) to separate themselves in case (the teen) was mad” and so the student could not strike him.The parents of the 14-year-old boy told the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office that the incident had occurred during first period Tuesday. He told them about it Tuesday night. The teen was later sent a video of the incident from an unknown student who was also in the class. Authorities said the teen’s parents then alerted the school administrators Wednesday.According to the affidavit, in a later interview with authorities, the teen said that he had been playing music on his computer and had asked the teacher for help. Paffumi muted his computer twice and the teen said that he’d told the teacher, “Put my s— down cracka.”The teen said that the teacher had not restricted his airway when he grabbed and lifted him out of the classroom and that he had not been injured in the incident, according to authorities. Although the teen’s father said his son was wrong for the things he’d said, the affidavit stated, he still sought charges against the teacher.In a news release Wednesday announcing the charge against Paffumi, Sheriff Rick Staly said, “As a teacher you have to control your temper even when students test you. This is an unfortunate incident involving a teacher and a student. … Corporal punishment like the old days is not allowed today.”Paffumi was booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where he was held with no bond. He has since been released and is on leave pending the outcome of the probe.Flagler Schools Superintendent James Tager said in the news release, in part, that “the actions of this teacher are not consistent with how we expect our educators to act and behave and it will not be tolerated.”“We immediately removed Mr. Paffumi from the classroom following the incident. … I have stressed to my executive team the importance of handling this investigation with the utmost seriousness it deserves,” Tager said. “I also understand a video shows only a portion of a particular incident, so this investigation will encompass the incident in totality and not just what was captured on a camera.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The results are then collated and analysed to see if they can be linked to work undertaken.According to the TUC, industrial diseases are under-reported to the Government due to a reliance on official disease reports, not studies that ask workers directly about ailments.www.tuc.org.uk TUC calls on safety reps to look at whole pictureOn 22 Aug 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

Outsourcing and the use of HR technology is set to increase dramaticallyover the next 10 years, according to a survey called Predicting the workplaceof 2010. The research, by HR consultancy Cubiks, shows that HR will becomeincreasingly involved in business strategy and will rely heavily on nicheproviders of recruitment, assessment, training and reward management services. In the future, the responsibility for personal development will shift fromthe employer to the employee, claims the report. Barry Spence, chief executive of Cubiks, said, “If HR professionals canmake software and the Internet work for them, they will see valuable timereleased for channelling into more strategic activities.” The survey is based on 100 responses. www.cubiks.com Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more
