Powered by Firework As the novel Coronavirus pandemic has caused all sporting activities around the globe to face cancellation or postponement, many motor racing association are continuing their season calendar with organising virtual races. First seen in Formula 1 with their Virtual GP, American stock car racing company NASCAR also went ahead with their iRacing eSports series to continue with their races. However, driver Kyle Larson has faced a suspension from NASCAR and his racing team for using a racial slur during a live stream of the race on Sunday.Advertisement Image Courtesy: APKyle Larson, who has been put under suspension without pay by his team Chip Ganassi Racing, uttered the N-word when his team was unable to hear him over the mic. The race was live streamed with many viewers, and the American driver has been the subject of harsh criticism from all around.NASCAR released an official statement following the incident on Monday. “NASCAR has made diversity and inclusion a priority and will not tolerate the type of language used by Kyle Larson during Sunday’s iRacing event,” the statement read.Advertisement “Our Member Conduct Guidelines are clear in this regard, and we will enforce these guidelines to maintain an inclusive environment for our entire industry and fan base.”McDonalds and Credit One Bank, who were the sponsor of Larson, have also terminated their contract with the 27 year old driver from California.Advertisement “Credit One Bank denounces the highly offensive language used by Kyle Larson during Sunday’s iRacing event. In addition to the quick actions taken by NASCAR and Chip Ganassi Racing, Credit One Bank is terminating its sponsorship of Kyle Larson.” the bank’s official Twitter handle posted on Monday.“The comments made by Kyle Larson are insensitive, offensive and not reflective of our inclusive values and will not be tolerated. McDonald’s is taking immediate action to terminate the relationship with Larson.” said Mcdonalds USA.Larson himself tweeted a video, where he apologised for his unruly behaviour.“Hey, I just want to say I’m sorry. Last night I made a mistake and said the word that should never, ever be said and there’s no excuse for that,” the driver said in the video.“I understand the damage is probably unrepairable and I own up to that.

Origin of Life: Claiming Something for Almost Nothing

admin no comments

first_imgGetting life to emerge from nonliving chemicals is either a cinch or the most impossible thing in the universe, depending on whom you ask.  Let’s look at a couple of recent papers that suggest the origin of life was no big deal.    A press release from the University of Colorado advertised a paper by Michael Yarus and team in PNAS.1  The team, funded by a $415,610 grant from the National Institutes of Health, concocted a “Tiny RNA Molecule With Big Implications for the Origin of Life.”  It’s the smallest ribozyme yet, with only five nucleotides, and it is able to “catalyze a key reaction that would be needed to synthesize proteins.”  Tom Blumenthal, a colleague working with Yarus, said, “Nobody expected an RNA molecule this small and simple to be able to do such a complicated thing as that.”  By implication, this ribozyme could have been a stepping stone on the way to larger and more complex molecules of life.    Yarus has been a strong proponent of the “RNA World” hypothesis.  The team’s findings argue that RNA enzymes (ribozymes) did not have to be as complex at first to have a function.  He said, “If there exists that kind of mini-catalyst, a ‘sister’ to the one we describe, the world of the replicators would also jump a long step closer and we could really feel we were closing in on the first things on Earth that could undergo Darwinian evolution.”  He refers to the fact that Darwinian evolution by natural selection cannot be invoked till there is a replicator – a system able to duplicate its parts accurately.  Yarus admitted, “the tiny replicator has not been found, and that its existence will be decided by experiments not yet done, perhaps not yet imagined.”    But does this work support a naturalistic origin of life?  A key question is whether the molecule would form under plausible prebiotic conditions.  Here’s how the paper described their work in the lab to get this molecule:RNA was synthesized by Dharmacon. GUGGC = 5’-GUGGC-30 ; GCCU – 5’P-GCCU-3’ ; 5’OH-GCCU = 5’-GCCU-3’ ; GCCU20dU = 5’-GCC-2’-dU; GCC = 5’-GCC-3’ ; dGdCdCrU = 5’-dGdCdCU-3’ . RNA GCC3’dU was prepared by first synthesizing 5’-O-(4,4’- Dimethoxytrityl)3’-deoxyuridine as follows: 3’-deoxyuridine (MP Biomedicals; 991 mg, 0.434 mmol) was dissolved in 5 mL anhydrous pyridine and pyridine was then removed under vacuum while stirring.  Solid was then redissolved in 2 mL pyridine.  Dimethoxytrityl chloride (170 mg, 0.499 mmol) was dissolved in 12 mL pyridine and slowly added to 3’-deoxyuridine solution.  Solution was stirred at room temperature for 4 h.  All solutions were sequestered from exposure to air throughout.    Reaction was then quenched by addition of 5 mL methanol, and solvent was removed by rotary evaporation.  Remaining solvent evaporated overnight in a vacuum chamber.  Product was then dissolved in 1 mL acetonitrile and purified through a silica column (acetonitrile elution).  Final product fractions (confirmed through TLC, 1.1 hexane:acetonitrile) were pooled and rotary evaporated.  Yield was 71%. Dimethoxytrityl-protected 30dU was then sent to Dharmacon for immobilization of 30-dU on glass and synthesis of 5’-GCC-3’-dU.    PheAMP, PheUMP, and MetAMP were synthesized by the method of Berg (25) with modifications and purification as described in ref. 6.  Yield was as follows: PheAMP 85%, PheUMP 67%, and MetAMP 36%.Even more purification and isolation steps under controlled conditions, using multiple solvents at various temperatures, were needed to prevent cross-reactions.  It is doubtful such complex lab procedures have analogues in nature.  They started with pre-existing ribose, furthermore, and did not state whether it was one-handed.  The putative ribozyme function only consisted of one step of a complex multi-step reaction in living organisms: “The small ribozyme initially trans-phenylalanylates a partially complementary 4-nt RNA selectively at its terminal 2’-ribose hydroxyl using PheAMP, the natural form for activated amino acid.”    The team’s interpretation of the significance of their work relies heavily on imagination: “The ultimate importance of these observations may lie partly in the unknown number of other reactions that can be accelerated by comparably small RNAs.”  They simply assumed that a “geochemical source” would be able to produce a suite of other five-nucleotide ribozymes, including theirs.  “On one hand, with this few ribonucleotides to dispose in space, there may not be other similar nucleotide structures that are both stable and capable of catalysis,” they concluded.  But then they relied on future work and imagination: “On the other hand, for obvious reasons, it will be extraordinarily important to look for other tiny RNA active centers, now knowing they can exist.”  Finally, another reason they worked on the RNA-World hypothesis is that they recognized that “it is implausible that primitive peptides were synthesized using already-formed protein catalysts….”  It must be remembered, too, that these chemical reactions, even if they could occur naturally, have no forward-looking capacity.  They have no desire or power to direct their work toward the goal of producing life.  Because natural selection is out of the question before accurate self-replication, any success will be strictly due to chance.    A prerequisite for RNA is sugar.  How did they arise?  Another recent paper in Science might be called the rock candy theory for the origin of life.2  The authors argue that sugars might form naturally in the formose reaction and be stabilized in silicates.  They called this a “bottom-up synthesis of sugar silicates.”  Recognizing that previous work on the formose reaction produced mixtures that were complex and unstable, they argued that “Silicate selects for sugars with a specific stereochemistry and sequesters them from rapid decomposition.  Given the abundance of silicate minerals, these observations suggest that formose-like reactions may provide a feasible pathway for the abiotic formation of biologically important sugars, such as ribose.”  For a summary of this paper, see Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) press release.  The research was supported by the National Science Foundation, Dow Corning Corp. and Schlumberger Ltd.    The formose reaction “is a possible process whereby sugars form abiotically,” they said.  “This reaction converts formaldehyde (HCHO; C1) to a variety of sugars, in the presence of strong bases, organic bases, or minerals.”  Problem is, it “generates a plethora of unstable sugars, of which the key sugar, ribose, is present in a very small proportion.”  And, “An additional drawback is that the products from the formose mechanism are racemic [mixed-handed], whereas sugars under terrestrial biological conditions are homochiral” (one-handed).  Their work showed that some of these limitations can be overcome with silicates.    A look through the paper, however, shows complex lab procedures that are hard to justify in nature.  They claimed that “This bottom-up synthesis of sugar silicates is a plausible prebiotic process,” but noted that the sugars “oligomerize very slowly” and “uncomplexed higher sugars decompose rapidly under alkaline conditions.”  The RSC article states, though, that high alkaline conditions are required for the scenario, and that most of the silicates formed in weathering processes are consumed by other reactions.  To delay the decomposition, the sugars have to be complexed quickly on silicates or clays.  But they did not say how complexing the sugars with silicates might prevent, rather than accelerate, downstream biogenetic reactions.  So in their best-case scenario, some sugars might form in the formose reaction, and be sequestered in silicate complexes.  Ribose (essential for RNA) would constitute a tiny fraction of product (see 11/05/2004).    At some point, something would have had to take the correct sugars out of the silicate cabinet and use them to assemble RNA while preventing damaging cross-reactions occurring with other compounds.  Even then, the problem of sequencing the nucleotides – the key question – has not been addressed.  Where did the genetic code come from?  One ribozyme is not a code.  Unless and until all the ingredients for a self-replicating system are accounted for, none of these suggestive steps constitute progress toward the origin of life.1.  Turk, Chumachenko and Yarus, “Multiple translational products from a five-nucleotide ribozyme,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences February 22, 2010, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0912895107.2.  Lambert, Gurusamy-Thangavelu and Ma, “The Silicate-Mediated Formose Reaction: Bottom-Up Synthesis of Sugar Silicates,” Science, 19 February 2010: Vol. 327. no. 5968, pp. 984-986, DOI: 10.1126/science.1182669.Origin-of-life research suffers from a glaring flaw: lack of critical analysis.  Papers and press releases like this should immediately be subjected to unbiased criticism: “Those are not plausible prebiotic conditions!” or “How would nature sequester the desired compounds from damaging cross-reactions without the techniques you used?”  Many more questions should be asked.  Instead, because secular science has a vested interest in making the origin of life sound simple on the way to Darwinism, the journals allow these views to be aired uncontested.  It presents a false impression that science is making progress toward an answer in little, cumulative steps.  Institutions like the University of Colorado also have a vested interest in making their professors look good in the media.    If Big Science would do its job, the creationists and intelligent design community would not have to be cast in the role of spoil sports, showing why these ideas won’t work.  They won’t work anyway, but other insiders, not just the expelled, should be saying so.  After all, much of the work was paid for with taxpayer dollars.  Where are the watchdogs?THE ROCK CANDY THEORY OF THE ORIGIN OF LIFEIn the Big Rock Candy Mountains, science takes a holiday;Your funding comes around once a week and it’s Darwin Day every day.You never have to clean your lab or put formose away;There’s a little white lie you can wink your eye,Notions jump so high they can touch the skyIn the Big Rock Candy Mountains.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

FW de Klerk receives his smart card ID

admin no comments

first_img25 July 2013South Africa’s new smart ID card will enable the country to crack down on identity fraud, former president FW de Klerk said after receiving his new ID from Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor in Cape Town on Tuesday.“I think with all the bad experiences with regards to falsification of documentation, this is a good step in the right direction of ensuring that all citizens of South Africa, firstly – but hopefully also all those with permanent residence and visitors to the country – will have proper documentation,” De Klerk said.De Klerk asked Pandor whether the card would already be accepted by the releveant institutions around the country or whether he should keep his green ID bar-coded ID book as back-up for some time.Pandor said the department had recently gazetted a proclamation stating that the old ID book was being replaced by the new smart ID card.However, she advised him and members of the public to hold on to their green ID books for now because not all retailers and banks had the necessary readers for the new ID cards yet.She said Home Affairs offices were currently being fitted with technology necessary to process the cards, adding that the department aimed to have 27 offices up and running with the equipment by the end of August.By the end of the year, the department aims to have 70 offices capable of handling applications for the smart ID cards.According to Home Affairs, the roll-out of the smart ID cards is likely to take a number of years. The public will shortly be invited to apply for the smart ID cards, with applications to be made in accordance with applicants’ month of birth.The smart IDs will be issued free of charge to 16-year-old first-time applicants, while all other applicants will be expected to pay R140.As part of the launch, a number of leading South Africans – including Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, former president Thabo Mbeki, struggle stalwarts Ahmed Kathrada, Frene Ginwala and Sophie De Bruyn – and several senior citizens between 80 and 109 years old were recently handed their smart ID cards.One of the first smart ID cards was handed over to former president Nelson Mandela through his daughter, Zindzi Mandela.Pandor was scheduled to visit Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu in Cape Town on Thursday to hand him his new ID card.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Imminent House vote on TPA

admin no comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With the U.S. House soon to take up Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation, NPPC announced it would “key vote” lawmakers’ votes on the measure, which is vital to finalizing free trade agreements. (The Senate passed TPA May 23.)Periodically, NPPC scores members of Congress on their votes on issues and legislation that are of paramount importance to the livelihoods of America’s pork producers. The scores then are made public so voters have the information when determining the candidate of their choice in the next election. TPA defines U.S. negotiating objectives and priorities for trade agreements and establishes consultation and notification requirements for the president to follow throughout the negotiation process. Once trade negotiators finalize a deal, Congress gets to review it and vote yes or no – without amendments – on it.Congress has granted TPA to every president since 1974, with the most recent law being approved in August 2002 and expiring June 30, 2007. The immediate need for TPA is for concluding the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations among the United States and 11 Pacific Rim countries. According to Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes, the TPP deal would be the most significant commercial opportunity ever for U.S. pork producers, generating more than 10,000 pork industry jobs. Failure to pass TPA, which effectively would be a vote against TPP, would send a signal to the world that the United States is turning its back on the Asia-Pacific region — the fastest growing area in the world — and allow other countries to write the rules for international trade, according to NPPC, which is leading the charge to get TPA approved.last_img read more

A Map To Better Understand The Cloud Ecosystem…And The Hype

admin no comments

first_imgAppirio is in the business of helping companies get into the cloud computing world so it is no surprise that the map has its own viewpoints on matters of the cloud.From the Appirio blog:“It (the map) distinguishes between offerings that are true cloud offerings vs. those that are “hosted” (single tenant / multi-instance) vs. those that are on-premise “private cloud”….not really a cloud at all. Not really a cloud at all? Hmmm. There may be some who disagree with this view on cloud computing. Here’s the take from Gartner’s Tom Bittman: Trying to understand the basics of cloud computing is one matter but getting a grasp on the technologies across the different platforms is another issue entirely.To try and simplify things just a bit, Appirio is offering a map that shows the cloud ecosystem. The map breaks out 70 different layers of technology across applications, platforms and infrastructure. The map is pretty sophisticated with the ability to drill down to understand the underlying technologies. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now That aside, the map will be pretty helpful to almost everyone with an interest in the cloud computing world. Here are a few of Appirio’s conclusions:You Want Hype, We Have Hype: Man, It’s almost reminiscent of the podcasting hype a few years ago. Look at the map and you see that almost every tech company you can find has some take on the cloud. Cloud computing is at the top of Gartner’s Hype Cycle. And, of course, we have Larry Ellison, who is having a blast poking fun at the world of cloud computing. Hmm….when the clouds clear, what companies in the ecosystem will turn to vapor?The More You Share, The Better You Will Be: The name of the game is multi-tenancy. “This results in more than just economies of scale: multi-tenancy enables agility and innovation since there’s only one code base to work off of, and customer behavior can be observed realtime.”It’s Really Not That Clear At All: The lines are blurring out there. It’s difficult to tell what’s a cloud service and what is not. IBM, for instance, looks like it cuts across the spectrum. Where does it fit?Kudos to Appirio. This is the kind of clarification that we need to get a better grasp on cloud computing and what it all means.
