USS William P. Lawrence Joins Hurricane Eta Relief Efforts in Honduras

first_imgBy U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. Fourth Fleet   November 16, 2020 The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS William P. Lawrence (DDG 110) and the “Easyriders” of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 37 are supporting humanitarian assistance disaster relief (HADR) efforts in Honduras in response to the devastation left by Hurricane Eta, November 13.William P. Lawrence arrived off the coast of Honduras November 12, to support Joint Task Force Bravo’s (JTF-Bravo) mission by conducting familiarization flights, delivering medical supplies, and coordinating with other JTF-Bravo assets to identify future HADR efforts needed.These actions support the overall relief effort being led by the Honduran government and build on a foundation of many years of partner relations with the country.When Hurricane Eta caused devastating damage to the Central American countries of Honduras, Panama, and Guatamala, JTF-Bravo was directed by U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) to conduct life-saving efforts in the region. As search and rescue efforts are being taken over by host nations, JTF-Bravo has transitioned from rescue operations to the delivery of necessary aid to communities that have been stranded for days since Hurricane Eta passed through Central America.The mission has been a collaborative effort between the host nation governments and organizations, the U.S. military and the U.S. Embassies in each country. Years of working together have solidified relationships of trust and mutual cooperation to aid in times of crisis.The mission of Joint Task Force-Bravo includes being prepared to support disaster relief operations in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean when directed. They conduct constant training both on base and with partners across Central America to prepare for contingency operations, which allows forces to integrate with each other for a unified response when a disaster strike.last_img read more

Garda warning after driver caught speeding at 137kph in thick fog

first_imgGardai have issued a warning after a novice driver was caught speeding at 137kph last night in thick fog.Members of the Buncrana Road Policing Unit detected the driver driving at a speed of 137kph in a 100kph zone on the Letterkenny to Derry Road.The driver will appear before the local courts in the coming weeks. A Garda spokesman appealed to drivers to take care, especially in challenging driving conditions.“Please be careful on the roads. Road conditions from this time of the year onwards can be unpredictable.“Please use the fog lights on your car in foggy conditions and most importantly…..adhere to the speed limit,” the spokesperson added.Garda warning after driver caught speeding at 137kph in thick fog was last modified: November 12th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Proteins Can Tie Knots

first_imgYour job today is to invent a chain that can tie itself in a knot.  The chain can contain little magnets and electrical parts, but when you let go of the ends, a knot will spontaneously form.  This means that one end must form a loop and the other end must thread the loop.  Give up?  Maybe you should learn how cells do it.    There are certain chains of amino acids coming out of the ribosome translation machine that will tie a perfect trefoil knot (picture) every time.  This knot becomes embedded deep within the overall structure of the protein.  A trio of women scientists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine tried to figure this out.  Writing in PNAS,1 they only made small progress.  All they could say was that the knot tying seems to occur early on, when the chain is loose.  The tightening of the knot and the rest of the folding occurs slowly thereafter.  They mutated certain amino acids to watch what happened but that’s about all they could figure out at this point.    The protein they studied, YibK, is one of the simplest knot-tying proteins.  They mentioned others with even bigger tricks:The alpha/beta-knot methyltransferases (MTases) are a family of homodimeric proteins that exhibit an unusual trefoil knot deep within in their native structure.  Such knots are particularly impressive because they are defined by the path of the polypeptide backbone alone and therefore require that a considerable segment of protein chain (at least 40 residues) has threaded through a loop.  The question of how such complex topologies arise during protein folding is an intriguing one, and is of growing importance with the increasing number and complexity of knotted structures observed.  In addition to trefoil knots, a highly intricate figure-of-eight knot and a knotted structure with 5 projected crossings have been observed.  Consequently, when contemplating how a given polypeptide chain might fold, the possibility that it might knot must also be considered; if a global solution to the protein-folding problem is to be found, the puzzle of how such knotted structures form must be solved.Evolutionary theory played no role in their investigation.1.  Anna L. Mallam, Elizabeth R. Morris, and Sophie E. Jackson, “Exploring knotting mechanisms in protein folding,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA, published online before print November 17, 2008, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0806697105.A protein that can tie a figure-of-eight knot (picture) blindfolded with no hands: amazing.  The Darwinians can’t even do that eyes-open with their baloney.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Buyer Beware: Dangerous Paint Strippers Are Still Being Sold

first_imgThis post, which was co-authored by Mike Schade, was updated on February 19 to reflect a change in policy at The Home Depot. In 2018, the Natural Resources Defense Council won a wave of commitments from 11 of North America’s largest retailers to ban the sale of paint strippers containing the toxic chemicals methylene chloride and N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP). To see how these retailer policy commitments have been implemented, campaign staff, partner organizations and volunteers are visiting stores across the country to see whether retailers are following through to “mind the store.”RELATED ARTICLESAmazon Will Ban Controversial Paint StrippersEPA Sued Over Inaction on Paint StripperGetting Dangerous Paint Strippers Off the ShelvesAre Hazardous Vapors Seeping Into Your Basement? Over the last few weeks, we and our partners visited 42 locations of five major retailers’ stores, all of which had pledged to ban the sale of these harmful products by the end of 2018. We visited stores in 11 states (California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, North Carolina, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah) and the District of Columbia. The good news: All 12 Lowe’s stores we surveyed no longer had methylene chloride-based paint strippers on store shelves. Four out of 12 stores did carry one NMP-based paint stripper, and when contacted, a company representative pledged to reach out to the stores to remove the products. Lowe’s staff told us that they have issued a “stop sale” for methylene chloride and NMP paint strippers, which prevents these products from ringing up at the register. The NMP-based stripper we found at four stores (Citristrip) has been reformulated to not contain NMP and the old version of the product may have the same barcode as the new one. Therefore, consumers should still read the label closely. Two out of the seven Sherwin-Williams stores visited were still selling methylene chloride-based paint strippers. In response to our inquiry about these products, a Sherwin-Williams spokesperson said that every store would be re-checked on January 18 to ensure all products have been removed. No stores were selling NMP-based paint strippers; the company was not selling NMP-based products this past year. One out of the three Kelly-Moore stores visited was still selling NMP-based paint strippers. We did not identify any methylene chloride-based paint strippers still for sale at the three stores visited. In response to our inquiry about the product containing NMP, a Kelly-Moore spokesperson told us their director of purchasing is resending a memo to all stores reminding them of the company’s commitment and to remove the products from store shelves. The bad news: Across the board, 62% of the stores we visited were still selling methylene chloride and/or NMP paint stripper products. We found the two other retailers whose stores we visited are still intentionally selling their remaining stock of methylene chloride and/or NMP-based paint strippers, despite their pledge to phase out the sale of toxic paint strippers by the end of 2018. This is deeply disappointing. We found: All 11 of The Home Depot stores visited were still selling methylene chloride-based paint strippers. Five out of 11 also sold NMP-based paint strippers. In early January, we also identified both methylene chloride and NMP paint removal products available on The Home Depot website. The company has since removed the methylene chloride products from the website, but there are still at least two NMP products available online. (Since then, the company said it is removing its remaining inventory of methylene chloride and NMP products from store shelves.) Eight out of nine AutoZone stores visited were still selling methylene chloride-based paint strippers. Only one store did not. At five of the stores, we noticed the methylene chloride products were marked for clearance at almost 70% off, which could encourage consumers to unknowingly buy these dangerous products instead of safer ones. No AutoZone stores were selling NMP-based paint strippers. While both The Home Depot and AutoZone indicated that they have stopped purchasing new orders of methylene chloride- and NMP-based paint strippers, corporate staff for each company told us they are continuing to sell their remaining stock. This is out of sync with the public commitments these retailers have made to phase out the sale of methylene chloride and/or NMP products by the end of 2018. Selling off dangerous products, in some cases at a deep discount, is not in the best interests of their customers. While we visited a limited number of stores for each retailer, our store visits suggest this may be a problem for some of these chains. Mom demands action from retailers Lauren Atkins, whose son Joshua died using Rust-Oleum Aircraft Remover, visited stores in her area. She saw the product that killed him being sold for about 70% off at the AutoZone store where he bought it. She also found products containing methylene chloride at her local Home Depot and Sherwin-Williams. Ms. Atkins said: “For the sake of all of your customers you said you valued, and your future customers, please follow through with your commitment to remove the deadly products that contain methylene chloride and NMP from your shelves. The lives of your customers and their loved ones are depending on your commitment.” The longer that retailers continue to sell these products, the greater chance that someone could be harmed. After all, at least four people have died from using these products, including Joshua, since the Trump Administration started dragging its feet on banning these dangerous paint strippers two years ago. How did we get here? In May, in response to our national campaign, Lowe’s became the first major retailer to pledge to ban the sale of toxic paint strippers. This led to a major domino effect. In the following months, Sherwin-Williams, The Home Depot, Walmart, Amazon, AutoZone, True Value, PPG, Kelly-Moore Paints, Home Hardware, and Canadian Tire all made similar commitments. These are big victories for our campaign and for public health. We applaud these retailers for stepping up and committing to ban these dangerous products. Their actions are likely saving lives. In contrast, other retailers like Menards and Ace Hardware have failed to make public commitments to ban the products, and the EPA continues to drag its feet on banning these hazardous chemicals under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). That’s why Safer Chemicals Healthy Families, Vermont PIRG, and the mothers of two young men who recently died from methylene chloride exposure have filed a lawsuit against Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler and the EPA for their failure to finalize a ban on the use of methylene chloride in paint strippers.  NRDC has also served notice of its intent to file a lawsuit for EPA’s failure to take action required under TSCA. EPA’s own scientists found that methylene chloride and NMP pose health risks to the public, including cancer, harm to the nervous system and to fetal development, and death. According to the EPA, more than 60,000 U.S. workers and 2 million consumers are exposed to methylene chloride and NMP annually. Retailers must follow through on their commitments These retailers must follow through on the commitments they made and immediately pull these dangerous products from store shelves. If they haven’t already, they should also follow Lowe’s lead and issue a “stop sale” so that consumers can’t purchase these harmful products at the register. Over the next few months, we’ll continue to monitor these five retailers’ stores, and plan to visit other retailers like Walmart, Amazon, and True Value to see how they are implementing their policies once they come into effect. We’ll also continue to call on other retailers like Menards and Ace Hardware to join them. This new in-store research underscores why we need federal action and enforcement by the EPA, to ensure that no toxic paint strippers remain on store shelves. In the meantime, consumers should remain vigilant. Until these retailers’ policies are fully implemented and EPA bans these products, consumers should exercise caution when purchasing paint strippers to ensure they don’t contain these dangerous chemicals.  Learn more about safer alternatives.   Sujatha Bergen is the director of health campaigns in the Health and Food Division of the Natural Resources Defense Council.
