Sister So Far

Sister so far,

So far away

Wish I could

See you today

But you live your life

And I live mine

I’ll work it out

I’ll be fine

Still think of you

Of what you would say

Just the right advice

To make it ok

We stand so tall and proud

I remember days long ago

Where we’d swirl around

And suddenly let go

Let go, flying so far away

Now you’ve flown so much farther,

You’re off on your own

It’s all so much harder

Wish I could help

Wish there was something I could do.

Remember, I’m always here.

Right here for you.

We don’t have to face it alone

I’ve got your back

Things are so much different now,

And they’re never going back

So even though you’re older,

And you’ve been everywhere,

I’m still here for you,

And I will always care.

For Ariel.

Key gene causing malarial drug-resistance identified

Key gene causing malarial drug-resistance identified

Washington, April 18 : A team of researchers, including Indian-American scientist Souvik Bhattacharjee, has identified a gene responsible for making malaria parasites resistant to artemisinins, a key group of anti-malarial drug.

The gene is a dominant marker used to track the parasite’s resistance and causes artemisinin resistance.

Mutation in the gene increases the kinase or enzyme levels, which…

Европейские ученые установили, что за последнее время комары, обитающие в Африке и способные переносить вирус малярии, эволюционировали и фактически малярийные комары уже представлены двумя разными, но одинаково опасными видами. По словам ученых, сейчас можно с уверенностью говорить о появлении двух штаммов комаров, между которыми есть существенные генетические различия. Исследователи из Имперского колледжа Лондона изучили 2 штамма комаров Anophele gambiae, чаще всего отвечающих за передачу малярии в странах Африки, расположенных ниже Сахары. Два штамма комаров, известные как M и S, физически идентичны, но генетически имеют различия, что делает их представителями разных видов. Таким образом, данное обстоятельство может существенно затруднить сражение с малярией, так как вакцины против одного вида не помогают против другого, сообщают исследователи. “Из проведенных исследований видно, что малярийные комары развиваются быстрее, чем мы думали и, к сожалению, стратегии, которые могут работать против одного штамма, не могут быть эффективными против другого, - говорит Мара Лоуничак, микробиолог из Имперского колледжа в Лондоне. - Это важно для идентификации и мониторинга скрытых генетических изменений переносчиков заболевания, если мы хотим добиться успеха в лечении малярии и взятии под контроль данного заболевания”. Согласно оценкам ВОЗ, сейчас по всему миру около 200 миллионов человек заражены малярией, большинство из них живут в Африке.Без комментариев.

Antimalarial drug resistance increases in Asia

Malaria is the most prevalent disease in humans.  It infections millions and kills an estimated 600,000 people a year, and is a hematoprotozoan parasitic infection which is transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes.

There are five species of malaria which has the ability to infect humans, and while antimalarial drugs are available, a resistance has been formed to three of the five malarial…

In a military-sponsored research project begun during the Second World War, inmates of the Stateville Penitentiary in Illinois were infected with malaria and treated with experimental drugs that sometimes had vicious side effects. They were made into reservoirs for the disease and they provided a food supply for the mosquito cultures. They acted as secretaries and technicians, recording data on one another, administering malarious mosquito bites and experimental drugs to one another, and helping decide who was admitted to the project and who became eligible for early parole as a result of his participation. Thus, the prisoners were not simply research subjects; they were deeply constitutive of the research project. Because a prisoner’s time on the project was counted as part of his sentence, and because serving on the project could shorten one’s sentence, the project must be seen as simultaneously serving the functions of research and punishment. Michel Foucault wrote about such ‘mixed mechanisms’ in his Discipline and punish. His shining example of such a ‘transparent’ and subtle style of punishment was the panopticon, Jeremy Bentham’s architectural invention of prison cellblocks arrayed around a central guard tower. Stateville prison was designed on Bentham’s model; Foucault featured it in his own discussion. This paper, then, explores the power relations in this highly idiosyncratic experimental system, in which the various roles of model organism, reagent, and technician are all occupied by sentient beings who move among them fluidly. This, I argue, created an environment in the Stateville hospital wing more panoptic than that in the cellblocks. Research and punishment were completely interpenetrating, and mutually reinforcing.

Boko Haram suspected of killing four in Nigeria village raid

Suspected Boko Haram Islamists have killed four people following raids on villages in Nigeria’s northeastern Borno state, a local official and residents said on Saturday.The motorcycle-riding Islamists Friday raided two communities, setting homes ablaze, and killing three women and a man in the village of Mairi, they said.The raids came barely a week after the attack on the village of Dalori, just outside Maiduguri, capital of the restive state, which left at least 85 people dead.The senator representing the area, Babakaka Garbai, confirmed the killings.“ "They killed four persons…

The attackers also set ablaze all private and public buildings in Malari, he added.Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari had in December claimed that Nigeria had largely won the fight against Boko Haram.Boko Haram which seeks a hardline Islamic state in northern Nigeria has killed some 17,000 people and forced more than 2.6 million others to flee their homes since the start of its insurgency in 2009.
