Democrats Battle for Senate Control as They Push for an Expanded House Majority

first_imgThe race in Maine has been just as steady, with the Democrat, Sara Gideon, the speaker of the State Legislature, threatening to unseat Ms. Collins, a four-term Republican and one of the last centrists left in her party. After easily winning re-election in 2014, Ms. Collins struggled to stay afloat as her race became a national referendum on the Republican Party, and she was battling to win a majority to avoid activating the state’s newly enacted ranked-choice voting system, which could badly hurt her chances.“We’ve never given up, because that is what we Mainers do — we work hard, we show up for work every day and we get the job done,” Ms. Collins told her supporters, addressing them in a snowy parking lot in Bangor. “I wish that I could thank each of you by name, that would take all night — on the other hand, we may be here all night.” In Iowa, Republicans were more confident in recent days that Senator Joni Ernst would hold off an upset by Theresa Greenfield, a Democrat with roots in the state’s farming community, in the most expensive race in the state’s history.- Advertisement – How to Follow the Election ResultsHere’s a guide to The Times’s election night coverage, no matter when, how or how often you want to consume it. – Advertisement – If you just want results… There will be a results map on The Times’s home page, and yes, the infamous needle will be back — but only for Florida, Georgia and North Carolina, the only states providing granular enough information for our experts to make educated projections of uncounted votes.If you want constant updates… Times reporters are live-blogging all day and night.

Election 2020 ›- Advertisement – Republicans believed they were benefiting from wayward conservative voters returning to the fold after the confirmation of Justice Barrett, a long-sought priority.Democrats, though, had a late surge of optimism around the two races in Georgia, where Jon Ossoff, a 33-year-old documentary filmmaker, had Senator David Perdue racing to shore up his conservative base, and the Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock had taken a commanding lead in the special election to replace the retired Republican senator Johnny Isakson. With multiple Democratic and Republican candidates splitting the vote, Dr. Warnock’s race was almost certainly headed to a runoff. Mr. Ossoff and Mr. Perdue could end up there, too, but were both still jockeying to clear 50 percent on Election Day. Georgia law requires a runoff if no candidate wins a majority.Both parties had other targets, but they were considered a stretch. For Republicans, the best option was Michigan, where John James, a Black Iraq war veteran who ran for the Senate unsuccessfully in 2018, was trying to unseat Senator Gary Peters. Democrats believed they had an outside shot of defeating Steve Daines in Montana and Dan Sullivan in Alaska. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Suspended sentence for man who aided and abetted Carrigans grow house

first_imgA 59-year-old Derryman has been given a one-year suspended sentence for aiding and abetting the cultivation of cannabis at a grow house in east Donegal.Over 100 marijuana plants were found when Gardaí raided a property at The Haw, Carrigans on October 23, 2015. Officers found two grow tents, each containing ten mature plants, while numerous other plants or cuttings were found along with incubators under fluorescent lighting. Detective Sergeant Joseph Kealy told Letterkenny Circuit Court that Gardaí had the property under observation.Detective Sergeant Kealy and colleagues went to the premises on October 23, 2015 and found a male inside. The male was subsequently arrested and charged with possession of a controlled drug and cultivation of cannabis without a licence.Other detectives remained at the house to preserve the scene when they heard a key turn and a male entered the property, where he shouted to ask who had turned off the radio. Officers altered the man to their presence and he dropped the key on the floor.Edward McDermott (59) of 11 Abbotswalk, Bogside, Derry was arrested and charged with aiding and abetting the cultivation McDermott told Gardaí that the owner of the property was living in Dubai and he had been asked to check on the house.Barrister for McDermott, Mr Moriarty, said his client, who has no previous convictions, had suffered ‘a veritable constellation of medical difficulties’.“A black dog has had a firm hold for the majority of his life,” Mr Moriarty said.“He showed signs of mental fragility from an early age and he has been in poor health for a long time.“This was not an operation for profit and not one described as being on an industrial scale.”McDermott’s co-accused, Christopher McDaid, received a one-year suspended sentence at Letterkenny Circuit Court in February 2017, having said that he was growing the plants to treat his then ten-year-old son who suffered from ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare genetic disorder which has no cure. Judge John Aylmer said he couldn’t countenance making findings different and inconsistent to Judge Nolan. “I have to deal with it as being one where it has already been established that this was a not-for-profit operation,” Judge Aylmer said. “His co-accused was doing this for a particular medicinal purpose. Mr McDermott is before me having pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the operation He is a person who is obviously vulnerable and prone to being in an operation such as this and being taken advantage of to some extent.”Judge Aylmer said the offence could merit a sentence of 18 months for McDermott. However, Judge Aylmer reduced that to one year and suspended the sentence. He directed that McDermott enter into a bond of €100 to keep the peace and be of good behaviour. Suspended sentence for man who aided and abetted Carrigans grow house was last modified: November 10th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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) Tags:cannabisCarrigansDetective Sergeant Joseph KealyEdward McDermottJudge John AylmerletterkennyLetterkenny Circuit Courtlast_img read more

Your Inner Postal Service

first_img51; Zip codes – those five- or nine-digit numbers on mail – have an analogue in every one of your cells.  Like a city,1 a cell has information to ship from place to place.2  To make sure that the manufacturing instructions for protein parts arrive at the appropriate assembly site, the shipper puts a molecular tag on a transport vehicle (the postman) that works just like a zip code.  At least that is the way an article in PLoS Biology described the process.    Richard Robinson is a freelance science writer who wrote in the peer-reviewed, open-access science journal PLoS Biology about “A Two-Step Process Gets mRNA Loaded and Ready to Go.”3  (mRNA refers to the messenger RNA, the edited transcript of DNA, that contains the coded instructions for a protein.)  He used the word “zipcode” five times in his description of recent findings about the process:Proteins are the workhorses of the cell, but to get the most work out of them, they need to be in the right place.  In neurons, for example, proteins needed at axons differ from those needed at dendrites, while in budding yeast cells, the daughter cell needs proteins the mother cell does not.  In each case, one strategy for making sure a protein gets where it belongs is to shuttle its messenger RNA to the right spot before translating it.    The destination for such an mRNA is encoded in a set of so-called “zipcode” elements, which loop out of the RNA string to link up with RNA-binding proteins.  In yeast, these proteins join up with a myosin motor that taxis the complex to the encoded location.The players in this process are the messenger RNA (mRNA) with the coded instructions (like blueprints) for a molecular machine, the zipcode elements attached to the mRNA that tell it where it needs to go, and the myosin “taxi” that takes the mRNA to the right factory (ribosome) where the protein parts will be assembled.  But other parts must be involved; who sorts the mail?  Who checks that the zip code is present?    The rest of Robinson’s synopsis discussed how recent findings show more complexity than previously known (see 06/26/2002, 09/06/2002, 01/01/2005, 01/13/2007).  It was known that proteins called She2p and She3p were involved, but not how they interacted with the zipcode elements on the mRNA.  There is a new level of quality control, he said, that has come to light:Based on their results, the authors propose a two-step model of transport complex formation.  Within the nucleus, She2p binds to the mRNA as it is transcribed, and then shuttles it to the cytoplasm.  She2p binds loosely and promiscuously, though, catching up mRNAs both with and without zipcodes.  Once in the cytoplasm, She3p joins on, tightening the grip on mRNAs that contain zipcodes while booting out those without them.  With the myosin motor attached to She3p, the complex motors off to its destination elsewhere in the cell.    The results in this study indicate that quality control in mRNA transport relies on a reciprocal action: the complex proteins together ensure that only those mRNAs with a destination tag are incorporated into the transport complex, and the mRNA, by binding to each of the proteins in the complex, ensures that all are on board before the journey starts.In other words, one protein (She2p) binds to the parcel inside the nucleus and takes it outside, where the other protein (She3p) recognizes its counterpart, checks the zipcode, and joins the transport complex to the myosin taxi.  Studies have shown that without this quality-control mechanism, like when She2p mutated to prevent it joining with the mRNA, “the ability of the RNA�protein complex to reach its destination was impaired.”    Robinson’s comments referred to a paper by Muller et al in PLoS Biology.4  The authors stated, “We propose that coupling of specific mRNA recognition and assembly of stable transport complexes constitutes a critical quality control step to ensure that only target mRNAs are transported.”  They also used the phrase “zip code” 68 times, but never mentioned evolution once, except obliquely in one figure, to show phylogenetic comparisons of She3p between different species of yeast.1.  Michael Denton compared the cell to a city in a memorable chapter of his 1985 book, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, p. 328.  His description began, “To grasp the reality of life as it has been revealed by molecular biology, we must magnify a cell a thousand million times until it is twenty kilometres in diameter and resembles a giant airship large enough to cover a great city like London or New York.  What we would then see would be an object of unparalleled complexity and adaptive design…. a world of supreme technology and bewildering complexity.”2.  Ibid., “A huge range of products and raw materials and raw materials would shuttle along all the manifold conduits in a highly ordered fashion to and from all the various assembly plants in the outer regions of the cell.”3.  Richard Robinson, “A Two-Step Process Gets mRNA Loaded and Ready to Go,” Public Library of Science: Biology, 9(4): e1001047. doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.1001047.4.  M�ller M, Gerhard Heym R, Mayer A, Kramer K, Schmid M, et al. (2011), “A Cytoplasmic Complex Mediates Specific mRNA Recognition and Localization in Yeast,” doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.1000611.The guys who make up stories about life originating from primordial soup don’t think of any of these things.  They get all excited if they find a strand of RNA that can make one simple chemical reaction occur, as if that’s all that is needed.  But give them the best case scenario: a primitive cell filled with the essential molecules of life, but no process for getting the molecules where they are needed.  That includes no quality control, no inspections, no checks and balances, no feedback, no networks.  What will happen?  Entropy.    We remind our readers that evolutionary theory provided nothing to this scientific discovery.  We also remind them that these complex processes were described not for the most complicated eukaryotes, like giraffes, but ones much more humble: yeast.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Pictory: Get Your Photo Gems Discovered

first_imgThe site’s latest project entitled “Overseas and Overwhelmed” offers a rich array of images. From a market in Marrakesh, to a youth rally in Cuba, to a spirited football match in Buenos Aires – submissions feature farflung scenes of travel and exploration. And while the pieces of the story come from a variety of voices and viewpoints, the theme of culture shock comes shining through. When we asked the Pictory founder what she’ll retain from her days at JPG, she exclaims, “I’ve included the community aspect I’m familiar with from JPG because I really enjoy being surprised by submissions. I love people and the charming and unexpected things they do, say and think.” To showcase your brilliance and take a crack at Pictory’s next theme, submit your shots at Photo Credit: Youth Group – Henry Dombey, Bright Lights, Ancient City – Matt Nuzzaco dana oshiro A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market When the former editor-in-chief of JPG Magazine launches a photography startup, budding photojournalists should take note. Laura Brunow Miner just launched Pictory, a site where netizens are offered a chance to contribute their best work to a weekly photo essay. The difference between being featured in Flickr’s curated galleries or filling your Tumblr blog with panoramas is that Pictory tells a larger group story. There’s only one catch – you only get one shot (literally) to make the cut. The company invites snap happy users to submit captioned social documentary pics for review in a weekly group photo essay. After receiving the submissions, the designer/editor plans on choosing between 20-40 entries to create the final product. Says Brunow Miner, “Pictory will focus more on documentary and our lives and cultures, because ultimately I think that’s more interesting. On JPG I ran a theme on urban typography that was really fun for the design geek in all of us. [But] on Pictory I’d be more likely to feature a theme on urban transportation. It would still have design appeal, but would also show how different transportation across the world effects communities.” Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#start#startups Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts last_img read more
