BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota water officials say a company developing an oil refinery near Theodore Roosevelt National Park has supplied adequate information to justify drawing water from an underwater aquifer.An attorney for area landowners challenging the recommended permit for the Davis Refinery counters that information from Meridian Energy Group has been vague and contradictory.The arguments came Wednesday during a hearing before an administrative law judge. He’ll eventually make a recommendation to the state engineer, whose final decision could be appealed to state court.The water permit is one of several hurdles for Meridian as it develops the refinery just 3 miles (5 kilometres) from North Dakota’s top tourist attraction. Environmental groups are challenging its air quality permit in court. The refinery also will need a state wastewater permit.Blake Nicholson, The Associated Press
OTTAWA – When it comes to the North American Free Trade Agreement, Canada can safely claim the title of biggest loser in terms of lawsuits.Since the agreement came into force in 1994, Canada has been sued 39 times by foreign companies claiming Canadian policies have violated their rights under NAFTA.That is almost half of the 84 challenges made against all three nations under the investor state provisions.Canada has lost or settled eight cases and paid more than $215 million in compensation, while the United States has still not lost a single case or paid out a single dollar in compensation.About 60 per cent of the challenges aimed at Canada have targeted environmental regulations or resource management policies, including provincial regulations on oil and gas development and wind farms, forest and waterThe latest statistics were compiled by Scott Sinclair, a senior research fellow with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.Sinclair says NAFTA disputes could put a chilling effect on Canadian policy making, particularly in areas of environmental regulation and natural resources.Canada’s status as the most sued NAFTA country has to be considered a significant topic of discussion when it begins renegotiating the pact in August, he said.“I think there is a strong case based on the evidence that we have been the losers more often than not,” he said.Canada, the U.S. and Mexico are expected begin a renegotiation of NAFTA in mid-August.David Gantz, an international trade law professor at the University of Arizona and former tribunal member hearing NAFTA challenges, said there is no easy explanation for the fact Canada has been the target of more challenges or that the U.S. hasn’t lost any yet.“Part of it, certainly, is luck,” said Gantz.He said it may partly stem from the fact Canadian provinces have more autonomy than U.S. states and many of the challenges in Canada have been over provincial policies rather than federal ones.In March, Ontario paid a $25 million to Indiana’s Windstream Energy after a NAFTA tribunal agreed it had been harmed by an Ontario government moratorium on offshore wind farms on Lake Ontario.Gantz said even though the U.S. hasn’t lost yet, that luck will eventually run out, which is probably why the U.S. is as eager as Canada and Mexico to improve the investor state dispute mechanisms during NAFTA talks.He said improvements need to be made to the tribunals that hear disputes.Currently, when a private company believes a NAFTA nation has violated the agreement it brings a challenge, and that is heard by a three-member, ad hoc tribunal comprised of one person appointed by the company, one by the country being challenged, and another agreed to by both.“What seems to some arbitrators to be egregious, to others is not,” said Gantz. “Nothing is predictable and deciding when there has been a violation is very fuzzy.”Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is not tipping her hand on Canada’s NAFTA strategy and her office wouldn’t say Wednesday what Canada will put on the table when it comes to foreign investor provisions.Canada already agreed to improved dispute resolution mechanisms for foreign state investors in both the Trans Pacific Partnership and the Canada-Europe Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement.With CETA, Canada and Europe each get to appoint panels of five tribunal members for five year terms, and a third panel is appointed jointly.Each time there is a dispute, one panelist is to be selected from each group of five.Alexandre Larouche-Maltais, a senior researcher on trade and investment with the Conference Board of Canada, said this should provide more consistency when it comes to decisions made by the tribunals and more predictability for countries in the agreement.— follow @mrabson on Twitter. by Mia Rabson, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 28, 2017 2:56 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 28, 2017 at 3:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NAFTA lawsuits target Canada the most, United States hasn’t lost yet Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland speaks to members of the media on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

Happy birthday to the recorder-playing Patrick Troughton!One of the most pivotal actors in the Whoniverse, Troughton succeeded original Doctor Who star William Hartnell in 1966, helping to ensure the show’s survival—despite its unorthodox arrangement.Home from the war, the classically trained theater performer, made his television debut in 1947, and appear on the silver screen for the first time a year later.BBCIn 1953, he became the first actor to play Robin Hood on TV (to which the Twelfth Doctor pays homage in 2014’s “Robot of Sherwood”).Troughton’s impressive resume paid off in 1966 when Doctor Who producers were looking to replace Hartnell in the show’s titular role. Chosen for his extensive and versatile experience as a character actor, Troughton played the Chaplin-esque “cosmic hobo” for three years before leaving the series in 1969, reportedly due to a grueling schedule and fears of being typecast.BBCThe Time Lord and his rotating crew of companions—Jamie McCrimmon, Victoria Waterfield, Zoe Heriot—fight Daleks and Cybermen, battle the Great Intelligence and Ice Warriors, and meet UNIT leader Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.Troughton’s story came to an end when the Doctor was sentenced to exile on 20th Century Earth and forced to regenerate (into Third Doctor Jon Pertwee).Second Doctor Patrick Troughton (left) with Third Doctor Jon Pertwee (right) BBCHe later reprised his role as the Second Doctor three times—more than any other incarnation—in The Three Doctors (1973), The Five Doctors (1983), and The Two Doctors (1985).Doctor descendants Peter Davison (Fifth), Sylvester McCoy (Seventh), and Matt Smith (Eleventh) have declared their adoration for the Second Doctor, calling Troughton their favorite of the long-running series.The household name went on to star in various films, TV shows, and radio programs, including The Omen, Coronation Street, and Sword of Honour, respectively.Troughton passed away in 1987, three days after his 67th birthday. He would have been 97 today. Rest in peace, birthday boy.

Stay on target If you’re anything like me (which is to say a hard-partying fool), then you tore up the town looking great in your carefully crafted Halloween costume. I went as Rick from Rick and Morty so that even when I got a little out of hand, I would still be appropriately in-character. But that careful planning on my part pales in comparison to one lovely geek’s costume.This guy came up with a fully-functional Pokemon Go costume, complete with Pikachu, a Poke Stop, and even the little catching minigame.The augmented reality game may not be as popular as it was back in summer, but Pokemon Go is still one of the biggest cultural events of the year. And given how many moving parts this costume has, it wouldn’t be a stretch to assume that this trick-or-treater’s been working on his get-up since close to release.It starts with a wild Pikachu plushy that wiggles about in front of an Android phone screen. You can watch the video below, and I promise it’s a trip.So imagine seeing this at a party. Because this is the real world, you probably don’t have any Poke Balls on you, and that’s okay. Just spin the functioning Poke Stop and grab one. Then, toss the ball at Pikachu and watch it struggle to break free before you add it to your collection.Everything about this costume is impressive down to the Poke Ball close-up, the added wiggle for the capture effect, and even a tinder notification in the upper left-hand corner (surely a joking nod to the fact that Pokemon Go was briefly more popular than the dating app. Meanwhile, I just slapped on a wig and grabbed a lab coat and went to town. Someday, I keep telling myself, I’m actually going to put effort into Halloween, but even when that day comes, I doubt I’ll ever match this.

Explore further (Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at Osaka University in Japan has devised an experiment that gave results showing that phonons mix in such a way that they can be now be classified as ‘bosonic’ particles. Dave Kielpinski with Hewlett Packard Laboratories, offers a News & Views piece on the work done by the team and explains how it relates to work done with photons and other quantum particles. At the heart of the new research, is the idea of interference—as Kielpinski notes, there are two kinds involved with sound waves—constructive (where sounds waves reinforce each other) and destructive (where they cancel each other out) and a principle of quantum mechanics that says when the number of particles in a system is known, the hills and crests cannot be accurately predicted. Prior work with photons and other quantum particles has revealed many of their characteristics, now, in this new effort the researchers set about building an experiment that demonstrated these principles as they apply to phonons.They did so by first trapping two calcium ions in a vacuum chamber where laser cooling was used to prevent residual thermal vibrations by the ions, thus allowing only quantum vibrations to be part of the experiment. Next they fired laser pulses at the ions which allowed for adding or removing vibrations, a single phonon at a time. They also fired pulses in a way that caused the ions to fluoresce when they were vibrating—for use as an optical marker. Then to observe the interference that occurred, the team sent one phonon to both of the ions—because of their positive charge, they of course repelled each other. But doing so also caused one to vibrate while the other barely wiggled, resulting in a degree of interference. The researchers report that in most cases, both of the phonons wound up on the same atom—as quantum mechanics predicts, but only so long as no one actually measures the location. The added interference step suggested that the phonons could reside on two different atoms at once.The results of the experiments done by the team provide proof of quantum sound theory and also show that phonons are most certainly, bosons, not fermions.

Hong–Ou–Mandel interference of two phonons in trapped ions, Nature (2015). DOI: 10.1038/nature15735AbstractThe quantum statistics of bosons and fermions manifest themselves in the manner in which two indistinguishable particles interfere quantum mechanically. When two photons, which are bosonic particles, enter a beam-splitter with one photon in each input port, they bunch together at either of the two output ports. The corresponding disappearance of the coincidence count is the Hong–Ou–Mandel effect. Here we show the phonon counterpart of this effect in a system of trapped-ion phonons, which are collective excitations derived by quantizing vibrational motions that obey Bose–Einstein statistics. We realize a beam-splitter transformation of the phonons by employing the mutual Coulomb repulsion between ions, and perform a two-phonon quantum interference experiment using that transformation. We observe an almost perfect disappearance of the phonon coincidence between two ion sites, confirming that phonons can be considered indistinguishable bosonic particles. The two-particle interference demonstrated here is purely a quantum effect, without a classical counterpart, hence it should be possible to demonstrate the existence of entanglement on this basis. We attempt to generate an entangled state of phonons at the centre of the Hong–Ou–Mandel dip in the coincidence temporal profile, under the assumption that the entangled phonon state is successfully generated if the fidelity of the analysis pulses is taken into account adequately. Two-phonon interference, as demonstrated here, proves the bosonic nature of phonons in a trapped-ion system. It opens the way to establishing phonon modes as carriers of quantum information in their own right, and could have implications for the quantum simulation of bosonic particles and analogue quantum computation via boson sampling.

Similar results have been demonstrated in other cell lineages as well. Some labs are even trying to capture cells in the act of de-differentiating. “Our cells are much more plastic, much more capable of responding to injury, than we ever thought,” Fodde said. So much so, added Simon Buczacki, a cancer researcher at the University of Cambridge, that “what everyone is saying at the moment is that everything is plastic, everything can become a stemlike cell if it’s pushed.”Return to a Fetal StateBut what did that transition look like at a more molecular level, exactly? Particularly given how complex the concept of a stem cell has turned out to be, what did the “stemlike” state of a de-differentiated cell really entail?A few recent papers, one published in 2016 and two others within the last year, provide what many researchers consider to be compelling evidence that at least some differentiated cells can transiently express a developmental gene program that rewinds not just back to an adult stem cell state but all the way back to a state similar to that of a developing fetal organ. An embryo starts out as just a single cell. It’s not long before it divides into two cells, then four, then eight, and so on — a process marked by rapid growth, in which these early, unspecialized cells proliferate wildly to start building all the tissues of the body. As development proceeds, these embryonic (and later fetal) stem cells become more specialized, differentiating into the precursors of various cell lineages, which in turn give rise to more mature cells: blood cells, nerve cells, muscle cells, intestinal cells. Major functional changes in these tissues continue to take place after birth, as the organism adapts to life outside the uterus, for the first time using its lungs to breathe air and its digestive system to process food.A few cell populations retain some of that early plasticity as adult stem cells, helping both to maintain tissues on a day-to-day basis and to heal wounds. In recent years, moreover, it’s become clear that those aren’t the only cells that stay flexible: Sometimes, when the repair process calls for it, more specialized cells can take a few steps back, or “de-differentiate,” to re-enter a stemlike state, too.But new results suggest that that plasticity may go even deeper than scientists have thought. Three research teams have observed that during tissue regeneration, the typical solutions offered by adult stem cells (and the de-differentiated cells resembling them) aren’t enough. Instead, the cells of the damaged tissue turn the clock back all the way to a more fetal state, tapping into the proliferative power that once characterized development — and a program thought to have long gone silent.Atom Bombs and Self-Renewing CellsIn the early 1900s, scientists theorized that the specific blood cell types they’d learned to distinguish from one another under a microscope — red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets — came from a common, more primitive source: a stem cell. But it wouldn’t be until the 1950s and ’60s that researchers could offer definitive proof of their existence and begin to delineate their unique properties.The discovery of the first stem cells came about indirectly from the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Medical workers observed that exposure to radiation caused a precipitous drop in the survivors’ white blood cell counts, and experiments in mice showed that bone marrow transplants could offset those losses. Work over the following decades gradually revealed why: A population of cells in the marrow could both self-renew and differentiate into various, more specialized blood cell lineages. These were the blood-making stem cells.They departed from the behavior of more specialized cells in several key ways. When a differentiated cell divided, it produced two copies of itself — and depending on the cell type, the number of times it could do so was limited. That wasn’t the case with the stem cells isolated from the bone marrow. When they divided, they did so over extremely long periods of time, in a process known as proliferation. Moreover, those divisions were asymmetric: Each stem cell produced not only a copy of itself but also a daughter cell fated to become a specific type of blood cell. For those daughter cells that gained a differentiated identity, there was generally no going back. The real turning point in demonstrating clear evidence of such plasticity came in 2006, when Shinya Yamanaka and Kazutoshi Takahashi at Kyoto University in Japan took connective tissue cells from adult mice and, by introducing just four genes to them, succeeded in essentially wiping the slate clean and transforming them into embryonic-like stem cells. (The work eventually won Yamanaka a Nobel Prize.)Scientists rapidly followed up with investigations into whether this might be occurring naturally, too. It certainly seemed to happen in the formation of tumors — cancers have stem cells, as well as differentiated cells driven by mutations to a more stemlike state — but could such a process also represent something ordered, something healthy? The answer turned out to be yes. Throngs of cell types throughout the body — in the skin, in the lung, in the stomach — can de-differentiate when exposed to an injury that causes inflammation and damage to normal stem cells. While cells that have differentiated more recently are particularly prone to regaining their stem cell origin in these situations, research is also beginning to show that cells even further down the specialization path can go back.This week, a group of researchers led by Riccardo Fodde, a geneticist at Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands, reported that one such cell type — the paneth cells in the intestine, which secrete molecules that control the gut’s bacterial composition and digestive health — loses its normal gene expression patterns in favor of stemlike ones after injuries. These cells do not normally divide at all, but once they are coaxed into this stemlike state, they proliferate rapidly like stem cells, giving rise both to copies of themselves and to more differentiated cells. More recently, researchers led by Kim Jensen, a molecular biologist at the University of Copenhagen, found further support for this process in the colon of mice with inflamed bowels. Not only did the regenerating tissue express the Sca-1 marker and other signatures of a fetal program, but Jensen and his colleagues also implicated a potential mechanism: They reported in Cell Stem Cell last December that mechanical forces from the extracellular matrix surrounding and supporting the cells activated a signaling pathway that initiated the repair. The matrix stiffened — something Jensen is now hoping to show is also indicative of a fetal state.These results “point to this being a generalized process when there’s been an inflammatory or lesion-like injury,” Garcia said. “It’s like a security system” that the body has left in place since its developmental period.A Real Estate ProblemThat makes sense, according to Locksley, given how that system most likely functions. “Fetal systems very quickly build real estate,” he said. “You just want to lay out the organ: where the streets go, the conduits of electricity, the plumbing.” In repair, too, the name of the game would be about quickly amplifying the number of cells and making them as flexible and mobile as possible. All that matters is patching up the breach to the tissue. It’s like “throwing asphalt on top of a hole,” Locksley said, positing that it’s the most energetically efficient way to repair damage, whether in the myocardium after a heart attack or in the skin after a major burn. “If there’s a way to access an already less-costly way to cover the real estate, then who cares if you make a heart using fetal heart cells? You need it rebuilt first, and can let it differentiate later.” Richard Locksley (left) and Ophir Klein (right) of the University of California, San Francisco, observed a new kind of wound healing in the intestines of mice. In response to damage by parasites, the intestine’s adult stem cell program switched off in favor of a more fetal one.Courtesy of Richard Locksley; Steve Babuljak“But we quickly saw the whole thing go sideways,” Locksley said. He’d expected stem cells located close to where the worms had burrowed into the tissue to become more active, generating new lineages and making the necessary repairs. Instead, the genetic markers used to identify those stem cells disappeared entirely. Yet, even with that population depleted, the cells around the wounds began dividing more rapidly than usual. “It suggested that maybe the cells had shifted into a new, injury-responsive state,” said Ysbrand Nusse, the lead author of the Nature paper the team published in June about these findings.It would take years for them to figure out what was controlling that shift. Locksley started collaborating with Klein, his UCSF colleague and a stem cell biologist: The unanticipated result had piqued his interest. They found that a particular immune response was activated, and that the gene Sca-1 was being expressed at high levels in the damaged tissue. When cultivated in a dish, those Sca-1 cells formed blobs of tissue that looked more fetal than adult — a connection made possible only a few years earlier, when scientists first started describing the development of the fetal intestine in molecular terms.Klein and Locksley’s team found that a slew of other genes expressed during development had been transiently reactivated. The same cellular reprogramming occurred after irradiation and other kinds of injuries, too. In response to various types of damage related to inflammation, then, the cells seemed to be invoking some kind of fetal memory (though the researchers are careful to point out that this doesn’t represent a complete return to a fully fetal state). That implies that “adult cells can reactivate the same pathways that are normally used during the patterning of the tissue in the first place,” said Kelley Yan, a gastroenterologist at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York, who was not involved in the study.Marie-Isabelle Garcia, a biochemist at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, was one of the first researchers to uncover the importance of fetal growth genes re-expressed as part of a larger regenerative process.Courtesy of Marie-Isabelle GarciaTwo other research groups have uncovered a very similar phenomenon. In 2016, a team led by Marie-Isabelle Garcia, a biochemist at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, published work in Development showing that injured stomach tissue in mice re-expressed a protein marker identified previously in progenitor cells from the fetal stomach. Now, other experts who have been studying cells throughout the body capable of de-differentiating during regeneration or cancer can return to their data, this time with the express goal of uncovering whether a more fetal state was invoked to facilitate the process. “I don’t think they’ve looked for fetal markers, but I would bet they’re there,” said Jason Mills, a biologist at Washington University in St. Louis. “I don’t think anybody’s made the connection yet.”A New Cellular ProcessIn fact, Mills is one of the leaders of a recent effort to cement that connection: He’s working to bring together experts on regeneration and cancer in different organs, in hopes of digging deeper into the potentially conserved mechanism underlying the de-differentiation process. (He’s planning the first conference on the topic, which will meet in Colorado in January.)“The further back you go toward an embryonic state, the more cells start to look alike,” he said. “So we could find global markers of regeneration or cancer by examining this process.” Mills likens it to other conserved cellular processes, like mitosis (cellular division) and apoptosis (programmed cell death). In the same spirit, he and his colleagues coined a word for de-differentiation events in tissue repair and cancer: “paligenosis,” or “a return to a generative state.”In a paper published in February in The EMBO Journal, for instance, his team outlined how cells can revert to a more primitive, rapidly dividing state through what seems to be a conserved sequence of pathways. Gastric chief cells in the stomach and mature acinar cells in the pancreas, which both perform secretory functions in their respective tissues, undergo similar changes in response to injury: They lose the same markers, express similar genes and become smaller and more similar to embryonic cells. In both cases, the cells first degrade the features that characterize their differentiation, then reallocate their energy to support replication rather than secreting behavior. These cells have also been implicated as cells of origin in stomach and pancreatic tumors, which is consistent with the idea that cancer may be the result of paligenosis gone wrong. Mills and others have identified a few of the genes and pathways involved, but there’s still much more work to be done. In retrospect, the findings might not come as too much of a surprise: Researchers who study salamanders and other amphibians, the paradigms for tissue regeneration, see this happening on a far grander scale all the time. Those organisms can regrow entire limbs — bone, muscle, cartilage and all — by recapitulating a developmental program from a bud-like structure that forms on the injury site. But humans and most animals aren’t capable of this kind of tissue generation.At most, scientists have hypothesized that the de-differentiation process implicated in both tissue regeneration and cancer involves the activation of some sort of embryonic or developmental pathway. But studies of embryonic gene activity in such cells that could support that conjecture have had mixed results. “It’s an attractive idea,” said Andrew McMahon, a stem cell researcher who studies the kidney at the University of Southern California. “But frankly, the evidence for that isn’t there.”Part of what is significant about the newest findings, then, is that they suggest researchers studying regeneration in humans and other animals might have been looking for the wrong signs: Rather than embryonic genes, perhaps they should have been searching for the fetal markers that emerge a little later in development.That’s not what Richard Locksley and Ophir Klein, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, initially set out to do. Locksley, an immunologist seeking to gain a better understanding of allergies and the immune system, wanted to track the role stem cells played in the intestine’s response to damage from parasitic worms in mice. Lucy Reading-Ikkanda/Quanta Magazine“This happens again and again in biology,” Nusse added. “Certain principles get used over and over and over again in different contexts. So it would make sense that to repair the tissue, you’d use the same pathways and patterns that were used to initially build that tissue.” Amphibians quite clearly do that. Now, “it seems that something sort of like that, in a primitive way, is happening in the intestine” of mammals, too, Nusse said.Unfortunately, experts posit that cancer — which is “basically a disease of chronic inflammation,” Buczacki said — can develop when something goes awry during this regenerative process. When mature cells revert back to a long-lived, proliferative state like that of fetal cells, their opportunities to acquire mutations increase. Perhaps one or more of those mutations might eventually cause the cells to get stuck in their more fetal repair mode, preventing them from differentiating back into their specialized identities and leading to the out-of-control proliferation characteristic of tumors.There’s some support for that theory: Cancer risk increases in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and certain types of physical trauma.

Just waitGet even more of our inside scoops with our weekly Backchannel newsletter Jason Mills, a biologist at Washington University in St. Louis, is trying to connect findings in different tissues to define a mechanism that may be common to both regeneration and cancer, a cellular process he has named “paligenosis.”Indira MysorekarUntil now, Mills said, he has mostly been focused on the cell biology and the structural and signaling mechanisms in each cell, “not the fetal side of things.” As he and his colleagues seek to more fully characterize the process of paligenosis, work like that done by Locksley and Klein can guide them toward new places to look.There’s still a long way to go toward cementing these ideas, of course. Klein, Locksley, Jensen and Garcia, for instance, need to figure out what triggered the fetal-like response they observed in their various experiments — whether it comes from a specific cell type or all types, and how related those instigating cells are to the original stem cells that got suppressed. Garcia is particularly interested in what happens after these events: how the re-differentiation phase of regeneration works.They’ll also have to find out how this all works in humans, not mice, and definitively test the functional necessity of the reversion. It makes sense that it’s to cover a region with cells as quickly and efficiently as possible, but the researchers need to prove it.After that, it should become possible to distill the mechanisms employed throughout the process, and perhaps eventually exploit them for growing better tissues in the lab and learning ways to prompt healing after the onset of an injury or disease. It’s something to add to the “toolbox in which you can promote repair or prevent that damage from occurring in the first place,” Yan said. “As a physician-scientist, that’s what interests me.” Lucy Reading-Ikkanda/Quanta MagazineAs stem cell populations were later found in other organs as well, that “paradigm … serve[d] as a template to interpret experimental observations on any other mammalian tissue,” Hans Clevers, a molecular geneticist at the Hubrecht Institute in the Netherlands and one of the world’s top experts on stem cells, wrote in 2015. But that wasn’t necessarily a good thing. “Attempts to fit observations on solid tissues into the [blood stem cell] hierarchy mold,” Clevers continued, “have led to confusing theories, terminologies, experimental approaches and heated debates, many of which remain unresolved.”The Plasticity of EverythingStill, by the time Clevers penned those words, the conception of what it meant to be a stem cell was already undergoing a massive overhaul. In the late 1990s, stem cells from human embryos were isolated and cultured for the first time, revealing that unlike adult stem cells, which could give rise only to cell types found in their tissue of origin (a blood stem cell in the bone marrow might generate a neutrophil, for instance, but wouldn’t differentiate into a nerve cell in the brain), embryonic stem cells harbored the potential to become any cell type in the body.Meanwhile, adult stem cells found in tissues other than bone marrow didn’t always seem to act similarly to the blood stem cells. Ones discovered in the intestine and characterized throughout the 1990s and 2000s indicated that certain stem cell populations could replicate far more vigorously than those residing in the bone marrow, and could sometimes divide symmetrically. Several organs, including the pancreas and kidney, didn’t seem to have populations of cells that functioned exclusively as stem cells at all — implying that other cells in those tissues might have to assume stemlike duties in certain cases. In Clevers’ words: “The search for stem cells as a physical entity may need to be replaced by the search for stem cell function.” read more
Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths On Monday, one of the linchpin partners in al-Maliki’s government, Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, traveled to Iran for talks, government officials said. A day earlier, al-Sadr urged al-Maliki to “do the right thing” and resign, but it remains unclear whether al-Sadr will bow to Iranian pressure in the end.A collapse of al-Maliki’s government would be a potential stinging blow to Iran’s ruling system, which is already nervous about the future of its other critical Middle East ally, Syria’s embattled President Bashar Assad. It also presents a rare convergence of interests between Tehran and Washington, which also views the wily al-Maliki as perhaps the only viable Iraqi leader for the moment.“No doubt Iran is a significant political force in Iraq,” said Mehrzad Boroujerdi, a Syracuse University professor who follows Iranian affairs. “They are actively and aggressively trying to keep al-Maliki in power. The fear is that the downfall of al-Maliki, coupled with the uncertainties about Assad’s fate in Syria, could leave the Iranians suddenly looking at unfriendly faces.”Iran’s fingerprints are all over al-Maliki’s inner circle. Iraq’s political battles are further complicated by the international tussle over the country’s highest-ranking Sunni politician, Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi, who is accused of running death squads that targeted Shiite officials and pilgrims. Al-Hashemi, who has sought refuge in Turkey, has denied wrongdoing and has said he is the victim of a political vendetta by al-Maliki and his allies.Some of Iran’s leverage also is applied by powerful proxies.A top Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Kazim al-Haeri, recently sent a message to al-Sadr urging him to avoid dividing Iraq’s Shiites over political disputes. Although born in Iran, al-Haeri’s main group of followers is in Iraq. He is also seen as al-Sadr’s mentor.On Sunday, al-Haeri went further by publishing a fatwa, or religious edict, forbidding support for secular politicians in Iraq’s government. It was widely interpreted as a clear warning to al-Sadr not to risk bringing down al-Maliki’s Iran-leaning administration.“This fatwa is directed at al-Sadr,” said an aide to al-Maliki. “We are waiting.”The aide also said that both the U.S. and Iranian ambassadors in Iraq are in the unusual position of pushing the same agenda: Iraq cannot be allowed to fall back into political limbo. The aide said both diplomats reached out separately to Amar al-Hakim, head of the biggest Shiite political group in Iraq, with appeals to solve the political spat through dialogue.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements At least some senior Iraqi political figures believe Iran worked hard behind the scenes to block the no-confidence effort.“There is some Iranian pressure on the president (Talabani) not to send the letter to parliament (requesting the no-confidence vote) and to support al-Maliki,” said a lawmaker of al-Maliki’s political bloc, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to discuss sensitive political dealings with reporters.Hamid al-Mutlaq, a Sunni lawmaker from the Iraqiya bloc, was more blunt: “The Iranian interference annoys us a lot.”“Iran is a big player in Iraqi politics,” he said.Al-Mutlaq said al-Maliki’s opponents on Sunday handed Talabani a letter with the signatures of 176 lawmakers, or 13 more than needed to bring down al-Maliki, and demanded that the president call the vote.On Monday, al-Maliki said in a statement that he received complaints from lawmakers that some signatures were obtained through fraud and extortion, but he did not elaborate.Referring to those trying to unseat him, al-Maliki said that “those who have forged the signatures or threatened lawmakers” should be brought to justice. Associated PressBAGHDAD (AP) – Iran has played many political roles in Baghdad since the fall of Saddam Hussein: spoiler to American-crafted administrations, haven for Iraqi political outcasts and big brother to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government.Now add a new description as emergency repairmen trying to keep al-Maliki’s coalition from splitting at the seams.Shiite powerhouse Iran appears desperate to save the patchwork administration it helped create in late 2010 to pull Iraq out of its last major political crisis. Tehran is calling in favors among its allied factions in Iraq, and exerting its significant religious and commercial influence to try to block al-Maliki’s opponents from getting a no-confidence motion. Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Iran helped engineer the deal in December 2010 that brought al-Sadr’s anti-American bloc into the political fold, ending a nine-month political stalemate and keeping al-Maliki as prime minister.In April, al-Maliki was given a red carpet welcome during a visit to Tehran, where he had spent some time as an anti-Saddam activist. Iran delivered an even bigger reward to al-Maliki in May: bringing the nuclear talks with world powers to Baghdad as a symbol of the city’s slow rebound from war and as a showcase of Iran’s close ties.But al-Maliki’s political safety net was fraying at the same time.One government partner, the heavily Sunni Iraqiya movement, has complained of being sidelined in decision making. Kurdish parties from northern Iraq also joined the revolt. Even al-Sadr _ who spent nearly four years in self exile in Iran to avoid American-led forces _ signaled he, too, could jump ship and leave al-Maliki’s alliance dangerously close to toppling.Last week, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, a Kurd who has close ties to Iran and the U.S., held talks with disgruntled political factions. But he would not push the dispute to the next level by allowing a no-confidence vote in parliament, where al-Maliki’s opponents would need a majority of the 325 members to bring down the government. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to brief media.The current political tremors, however, are just part of a wider bid for long-term influence by Iran among Iraq’s Shiites.Iran appears to be supporting a member of Tehran’s ruling theocracy, Grand Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, as eventual successor for Iraq’s 81-year-old Shiite spiritual leader. Such as change would virtually cement Iran’s grip on Iraqi affairs and introduce a sharply different philosophy on clerical sway in politics.Iraq’s current Shiite leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, rejects a formal political role for the religious establishment, while Shahroudi is a product of Iran’s system of “velayat-e-faqih,” or rule by Islamic clerics.But Iran’s increasing reach in Iraq may bring some pushback of its own.Groups such as the Sunnis and Kurds have always been uneasy about the Iran-style blurring of Shiite politics and religions. And some Shiites, including al-Sadr, had gained followers by emphasizing their Arab identity and culture rather than a satellite of Persians.“Al-Maliki may ride out this crisis,” said Mustafa Alani, an analyst at the Gulf Research Center based in Geneva. “But there is a price to pay, and that price is more Iranian influence in Iraq. This may come back to bring other problems down the road.” Top Stories Comments Share 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day read more

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Sorry Arizona Cardinals fans, Kurt Warner is not walking through the proverbial door to save the team.“I could not do anything for you; I’ve been sitting on the couch doing nothing for three years,” Warner told ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike Friday. “Although people remember me on the football field I know I couldn’t do any of that right now.”Warner, who now works as an analyst for the NFL Network, threw for 8,336 yards and 56 touchdowns over his final two years with the Cardinals. He led the Cardinals to a pair of NFC West titles as well as Super Bowl XLIII in his final two seasons as a player. He retired in January of 2010, though, and the team has struggled mightily to replace him ever since. Matt Leinart, Derek Anderson, Max Hall, Rich Bartel, John Skelton, Kevin Kolb and Ryan Lindley have all gotten an opportunity to be “the guy”, but none have succeeded in the role. Arizona’s failed quest to find a quarterback has led to struggles on the field. The Cardinals, who went 24-18 with Warner as a starter under head coach Ken Whisenhunt, boasted one of the NFL’s best offenses with him under center. Since he’s left the team, the Cardinals have gone just 17-26.“That’s why it’s so difficult to replace top quarterbacks when you expect a certain type of play,” Warner said. “We’ve seen it around the league, when Hall of Fame quarterbacks leave it’s very difficult to find that next guy.“I think one of the reasons is because the expectation is always so high.”The team’s struggles to replace Warner underscore the challenge a team has in finding a quality passer. The Cardinals have added options through free agency, the draft and trade, but have yet to find an answer.“It’s a very, very difficult position to gauge before you see somebody behind center in a football game,” he said. “You can take a guy in a practice or you can evaluate a guy going into the draft and think you’re getting something, and when you put him behind center and put him in some different situations they react completely different than what you expected.” read more
