Luisa Whittaker-Brooks, Princeton University, Chemical and Biological Engineering. Dr. Whittaker-Brooks and her team have been able to revolutionize the materials science field by synthesizing nanoscaled materials for use in electronics, window coatings, sensing devices, and photovoltaics. The LOreal USA Fellowships for Women in Science award will support the rational design and implementation of thermoelectric materials to be used as solar-thermal generators in photovoltaics that are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. The thermoelectric materials Dr. Whittaker-Brooks synthesizes could be a boon for several applications ranging from power generation to microprocessor cooling which would potentially solve energy issues in the world. Anisa Salim Ismail, Princeton University, Molecular Biology. Mammals have coevolved with vast populations of commensal (friendly) bacteria, the majority of which are found in the intestine. Even though maintaining friendly relationships with commensal bacteria is critical to human health, the exact mechanisms that regulate this relationship are still not fully understood. Dr. Ismail will use the LOreal USA Fellowships For Women in Science award to establish mouse models to study the possibility that commensals and mammalian cells “talk” to each other, through a process called quorum sensing, to establish the beneficial relationships shared in the intestine. Robin Evans Stanley, National Institutes of Health, Biochemistry. Dr. Stanleys research goal is to understand the regulation of autophagy.
Isagro USA Announces U.S. EPA Registration of DOMINUS® Soil Biofumigant
“So it was terrifying.” The messenger had taken great efforts to hide his online identity. But investigators were eventually able to find corresponding e-mails, IP addresses and other communications they linked to Abraham. They also tied him to online forums asking about malware, how to control webcams, and hacking into Facebook accounts. Investigators also linked him to at least eight other young women — some of them, like Wolf, from Southern California, though others were from as far away as Moldova. The victims told authorities similar stories: of a person they did not know saying, and in some cases proving, he had nude images and making demands as a result. The stalker claimed to have 1,000 photographs of one woman, the complaint said. When she asked, “Why are you doing this to me?” the response was, “I told you I’ll answer any questions after you Skype.” As an FBI agent was speaking by phone to this young woman, she logged onto her Instagram account to find it populated by nude pictures of her, the complaint said. A few young women apparently complied with the demands for a Skype session. The man promised not to record the sessions and he made it look like he was erasing the nude pictures of them. One such session was found on the suspect’s phone, police said. Foul-mouthed hacker hijacks baby monitor Investigators examining e-mail exchanges found one in which an alleged victim wrote she was downloading Skype and pleading, “Please remember im only 17. Have a heart.” “I’ll tell you this right now!
Knight Expands USA Truck Stake Amid Vow to Pursue Takeover
We continue to believe that a combination of Knight and USA Truck is better positioned to deliver value for and is in the best interest of all of Knight and USA Trucks stakeholders, and we are prepared to take the necessary steps to make this combination a reality, Knight said today. Knight made public its offer to buy the Van Buren, Arkansas-based company in a $242 million transaction on Sept. 26, sending USA Truck shares soaring 36 percent, the biggest advance since its initial public offering in 1992. The combination would help allay risk in the short-haul carriers turnaround plan and help reverse eight consecutive quarters of net losses, said Knight, which is based in Phoenix. USA Truck rose 3.6 percent to $8.90 at 11:44 a.m in New York . The shares have more than doubled this year. Knight rose 0.2 percent to $16.55 and had increased 13 percent this year through Sept. 27. A phone call to USA Truck Chief Financial Officer Clifton Beckham wasnt immediately returned. Nicholas Leasure, an outside spokesman for Knight with Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher, declined to comment beyond the filing. This is not the first offer that USA Truck has turned down.
Longtime USA leader Gordon Moulton dies at 73 (updated)
I hate to just isolate it to football because he has done so much more for the University of South Alabama,” said Dr. Joel Erdmann, South Alabama director of athletics. The football program would not have occurred without president Moulton — that along with the marching band and all the other programs at South were enriched and made better under his leadership. Moulton also oversaw the creation and development of the Mitchell Cancer Institute. He and his wife, Geri, donated $3 million to the institute to help fund cancer research. The institute’s main floor research area is named for the couple. One of the largest donations to any educational institution in the country came under Moultons watch. Mobile businessman Abraham Mitchell created the Mitchell-Moulton Scholarship initiative with a $50 million donation to the school on its 50th anniversary in May 2013. The initiative will provide scholarships and support the Mitchell College of Business. Moulton’s health began to decline in the fall of 2012, and he was diagnosed with cancer. He underwent an operation to remove a tumor from the left front side of his brain in October 2012. Moulton returned to work within a week of being discharged. Following the surgery, he continued to get “preventative treatment” from the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute, completing it in December of that year.
AITC was first registered by the EPA in 1962 and has been in continuous use in a variety of products including pesticides for more than 50 years. Oil of mustard is also a flavoring agent and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and listed as Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS). DOMINUS is effective and versatile and will be a welcome addition to the growers crop protection tools, said Alessandro Mariani, Isagro USA President. We are very proud to deliver DOMINUS as the first product fully developed by our USA team, capable of addressing many of the challenges facing growers today. Because DOMINUS is a biopesticide based on natural plant defenses, it is considered to be inherently less toxic and therefore allows for greater ease of use than conventional fumigants. DOMINUS is applied using conventional equipment and can be applied with tractor mounted shank injection or diluted in drip injection equipment. DOMINUS gives greater control back into the hands of the grower, said Mike Allan, Global Product Manager for DOMINUS. DOMINUS is a 96% active ingredient formulation delivering consistent control of many pests, including weed seeds, nematodes and soil-borne diseases while improving crop yield and quality. Since 2009 DOMINUS has undergone rigorous testing in conjunction with university researchers primarily in California, North Carolina, Florida and Georgia; USDAARS and private contractors in the United States, Italy and Spain. DOMINUS is an environmentally-favorable compound with a short half-life in the soil of 20 – 60 hours; leaves no residue in the soil prior to planting; and degrades rapidly if exposed to sunlight, Allan said. Isagro USA intends to submit DOMINUS for approval in all states. DOMINUS will be available for use as individual states approve the product.
