Does C-USA get its final Liberty? For sure?
Stanleys research goal is to understand the regulation of autophagy. Autophagy is a cellular pathway involved in the recycling of cytosolic components such as proteins and organelles. Dysfunction of this pathway has been linked to many human diseases including cancer and neurodegeneration. The L’Oreal USA Fellowships for Women in Science award will provide essential support for the continuation of research at the NIH, where Dr. Stanley will focus on characterizing the structures of complexes involved in the early stages of autophagy. Mary Caswell Stoddard, Harvard University, Evolutionary Biologist and Ornithologist. Dr. Stoddards multidisciplinary research program explores key questions in avian evolution and behavior, with projects ranging from avian vision and feather coloration to egg mimicry by common cuckoos. The L’Oreal USA Fellowships For Women In Science award will enable Dr. Stoddard to pursue innovative research on the evolution and engineering of avian eggs. Dr. Stoddard will combine techniques from computer science, genomics and biomineralization to investigate how birds evolved eggshells with diverse structures and special mechanical properties, with the goal of contributing to new tools and advanced materials inspired by eggs. The 10th Anniversary LOreal USA Fellowships For Women In Science Award ceremony will take place at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on Thursday, October 24, 2013. LOreal USA Fellowships For Women In Science is a national extension of the global LOreal UNESCO For Women in Science program, which, since 1998, has honored 77 Laureates, including two who subsequently were awarded the Nobel Prize. The program has also supported more than 1,652 international Fellows who have made contributions in every field of scientific research.
Isagro USA Announces U.S. EPA Registration of DOMINUS® Soil Biofumigant
DOMINUS has been submitted to the U.S. Department of Agriculture for addition to the National Organic Programs list of approved substances for organic crop production. The company expects NOP approval by 2015. DOMINUS is based on Isagros patented technology and contains the active ingredient allyl isothiocyanate (AITC), a compound created as a natural defense by plants (from glucosinolate and myrosinase interaction) and known commonly as oil of mustard. 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.
They don’t get it in schools. They don’t get it anywhere except on that athletic field. “There’s probably 70 percent of our kids that are from single-family homes. They grow up with grandma raising them, or somebody raising them. First time they’re told when to go to bed, when to get up, when they get to class is when they turn 18 years old and come to college. “It’s a challenge that we’re not only dealing with as a coaching staff of a football team, but everybody in the country is.” As you can imagine, the big, big boys of college football are better equipped to deal with this, at least as far as size of support staff goes – Holliday figures that the Alabamas of the world have four or five people on the staff who do nothing but tend to those issues. Then again, less might be more. The staff in the Shewey Athletic Building is smaller, but players have better access to coaches, right up to Holliday. Over the years, a few players have cited such an atmosphere as a reason they came to Marshall. “We’ve got us as coaches, and I’m glad,” Holliday said. “That’s what I love about coaching, being able to take those kids and get them to where they’re supposed to be and get them living right and making great decisions, and winning football games.
