A free feeling and inspiring record from the album, ”Run” was produced by Eligh and features Pigeon John—who brings the hook to life. “Run” comes as a follow up to their single “All These Lights,” which was featured in coverage of the 2014 Olympics on NBC and even appeared in a Lexus commercial.

How one parasitic wasp becomes the victim—of another parasitic wasp

first_imgErik Poelman Karma is a real pest for parasitoids, tiny parasitic wasps that lay their eggs on caterpillars. That’s because the way they protect their hungry young from the caterpillar’s immune system sends out a chemical calling card that lures other parasites, which feast on the offspring, according to a new study.For the parasitoid’s brood, a caterpillar is a walking nursery and buffet. But that brood is on the menu for wasps called hyperparasitoids, which lay their eggs on the parasitoid offspring. Researchers previously found that hyperparasitoids sniff out their victims using the distinctive aroma a plant emits when being munched by a parasitized caterpillar.What’s ultimately responsible for the release of this odor, scientists report today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is a virus that parasitoids squirt into a caterpillar to suppress its immune system and shield their offspring. When the researchers injected caterpillars with the virus and let the insects gnaw on wild cabbage plants, they found that the scent of the plants was particularly attractive to the hyperparasitoid Lysibia nana (above, laying its eggs on the parasitoid’s cocoons). The study suggests the virus changes the chemical composition of the caterpillars’ saliva, which in turn causes the plant to release molecules that are wasp-nip for hyperparasitoids.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) By Mitch LeslieApr. 30, 2018 , 3:00 PMcenter_img How one parasitic wasp becomes the victim—of another parasitic wasplast_img read more

Report: West Ham 1 Arsenal 0

first_imgSamir Nasri impressed for West Ham as they claimed a 1-0 Premier League victory over his former club Arsenal at London Stadium on Saturday.Nasri was making his Premier League debut for the club as he continues his comeback from an 18-month ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in December 2016, contravening World Anti-Doping Agency rules.And the former France international was a key figure for West Ham, setting up Declan Rice for the winner early in the second half. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Marko Arnautovic – linked with a move to China – waved to fans after being replaced in the second half, while Arsenal struggled to truly test goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in a poor showing.Mark Noble failed to get enough purchase on a left-footed strike from the edge of the box as West Ham threatened to take an early lead but it was Arsenal who forced the first real save of the match – Fabianski providing the block after Alexandre Lacazette had exposed a hole in the Hammers’ defence.Sead Kolasinac chose to cut the ball back for Lacazette when a shot would have been the better option after the ball broke for him down the left after 23 minutes, while Nasri probably should have followed the Bosnian’s example when he drilled into the side-netting soon after.Chance for Nasri!Samir plays a one-two with Arnie and then shoots wide of goal in the box. That was a real chance. #WHUARS 0-0 (26)— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) January 12, 2019Nasri then teed up Felipe Anderson to fizz a low strike wide, before Matteo Guendouzi arrowed a strike just past the post from distance with Fabianski at full stretch and Declan Rice headed just off target in the closing stages of an even first half.West Ham made the breakthrough three minutes into the second half, when a weak clearing header from Laurent Koscielny fell to former Arsenal colleague Nasri, who laid off the ball for Rice fire home from just inside the box – the 19-year-old’s first goal for the club.Arsenal improved following the introduction of Aaron Ramsey – who is said to have agreed a deal with Juventus this week – after 59 minutes but failed to make their chances count, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi missing two opportunities of note.The Gunners had the ball in the back of the net in stoppage time, but Koscielny’s header was ruled out for offside against Lucas Torreira, who crossed the ball, as West Ham held on for a first home win against the Gunners since 2006. What does it mean? Travel sickness for ArsenalDefeat at West Ham means fifth-placed Arsenal are now without a win in their last five Premier League away matches, losing three of those, and could now be caught by Manchester United if they pick up three points at Tottenham on Sunday. West Ham climb to eighth ahead of the rest of the weekend’s fixtures.Nasri shows promising flashesAny doubts around Nasri’s readiness for Premier League football after so long out will have at least been partially allayed by his performance on Saturday.Some neat and intelligent touches around the box made him a central part of West Ham’s attacking play and he came away with a deserved assist from his first match back in the English top flight.Arnautovic waved off amid Chinese whispersNasri was replaced after 70 minutes – the same time as Arnautovic was removed after a much less impactful display.The Austrian removed his gloves and waved to all corners of the ground as he trudged from the pitch, perhaps suggesting there is truth in the reports linking him with a move to China.Key Opta Facts- West Ham registered only their third home Premier League win against Arsenal and their first since November 2006, ending a run of 10 home games without victory against the Gunners (D3 L7).- Arsenal have taken just two points from their last five away Premier League games (W0 D2 L3) – they won 13 in the five away games prior to this run (W4 D1 L0).- Nasri played his first Premier League game for West Ham and registered his first assist in the competition since April 2016, when he assisted Sergio Aguero for Man City against Chelsea.- Arsenal are one of three Premier League teams yet to lead at half-time in an away Premier League match this season, along with Burnley and Cardiff City.- Manuel Pellegrini remains unbeaten in home matches against Unai Emery in all competitions during his managerial career (P7 W5 D2 L0).19y 363d – Declan Rice (aged 19 years 363 days) is the first teenager to score a Premier League goal for West Ham since Junior Stanislas in November 2009. Talented. #WHUARS— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 12, 2019What’s next?After clashes with Fulham and West Ham, the London derbies keep coming for Arsenal, who host Chelsea next Saturday.

Indigenous protesters in Washington declare Trans Mountain wont be built

first_imgVANCOUVER – Cedar George-Parker remembers the moment he decided to devote his life to defending Indigenous people and their traditional territories. It was the one-year anniversary of a shooting at his high school that killed four of his classmates in Marysville, Wash.“I dropped to my knees and I said, ‘I’m going to make a change in the world,’ ” he recalled.George-Parker is among the Indigenous protesters in Washington state promising to fight the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Activists call the project the Standing Rock of the north, comparing it to the fierce Standing Rock Sioux protests that stalled the Dakota Access Pipeline for months.The Trans Mountain expansion — recently bought by Canada for $4.5 billion — doesn’t only affect Canadian waters or land. The project will increase tanker traffic seven-fold in the Salish Sea, which borders British Columbia and Washington, and Kinder Morgan has noted the expansion potential of a connected 111-kilometre pipeline that runs from B.C.’s Fraser Valley to Washington refineries.Many Indigenous activists trace their roots to both sides of the border. George-Parker’s father is from North Vancouver’s Tsleil-Waututh Nation and his mother is from Washington’s Tulalip Tribes. He travels to B.C. often and in April disrupted a speech by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Vancouver.“Our people never had borders,” he said. “We still try not to let borders separate us.”The 2014 shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School deeply affected George-Parker, now 21. He found it outrageous that governments subsidize big business while underfunding education and counselling for young people. Canada’s purchase of Trans Mountain is the latest example of wasted government money, he said.Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has criticized Trudeau’s government for buying the pipeline project, calling it a “major step backward” in the climate change fight.Even though Inslee opposes the expansion, some protesters in his state don’t feel supported. Police arrested Janene Hampton in January and charged her with criminal trespassing after she and several other Indigenous women camped on the state capitol lawn to protest resource projects including Trans Mountain.Hampton also camped at the Standing Rock protest for months. She joined the movement against pipelines to protect the water, said Hampton, a member of the Colville Okanagan Tribe, which has traditional territories spanning B.C.’s southern Interior to northeast Washington.“One of the big fights for us as Aboriginal people is the whales,” she said, adding they use sonar, and existing vessel noise has already disrupted their communication.Canada’s $1.5-billion oceans protection plan includes $7.2 million to increase the use of technologies that monitor underwater noise. It has also announced other steps to support the recovery of the endangered southern resident killer whale population, which lives in B.C. and Washington waters.The Canadian government often touts its oceans protection plan as “world-leading,” but as recently as May 2017, officials in Washington raised questions about Canada’s preparedness for an oil spill.Washington required Kinder Morgan to conduct a worst-case scenario exercise. The company simulated a spill of 3,024 barrels of heavy synthetic crude oil in the Sumas River, which runs from B.C.’s Fraser Valley to Whatcom County, Wash.In a report following the exercise, state ecology department staff wrote that Kinder Morgan brought together a skilled spill management team including staff from U.S., Canadian, B.C. and Washington government agencies. But the report also said non-floating oil tactics planned on the Washington side were not planned on the B.C. side, and Canada did not discuss the type of equipment it would use to clean up a major spill.The exercise was conducted to meet U.S. regulatory requirements and was not focused on the Canadian response, said James Stevenson, a spokesman for the National Energy Board. A joint U.S.-Canadian plan to respond to cross-border spills exists but was not activated during the May 2017 exercise, he said.Canada’s purchase of the project includes the Puget Sound pipeline, a 111-kilometre line that diverts from the existing Trans Mountain pipeline in B.C. and carries oil to four Washington refineries. Environmental groups now fear an expansion to the Puget Sound line, citing 2017 financial disclosure documents in which Kinder Morgan touted the potential for increasing capacity.“That is definitely a big concern,” said Rebecca Ponzio, campaign director for Stand Up to Oil, a coalition of U.S. groups that oppose new oil terminals and coastal exports.Canada’s Department of Finance did not directly answer a question about whether it would consider expanding the Washington line, but it said it planned to follow Kinder Morgan’s 2018 construction schedule for the expansion of the pipeline in B.C. and Alberta.Trans Mountain, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, said market conditions dictate how much crude oil is transported through the Puget Sound pipeline. While the line could be expanded, the company expects the majority of the expansion capacity from the Trans Mountain project will be for export from a marine terminal in Burnaby, B.C.But protesters won’t allow construction on the expansion to proceed without a fight.“That pipeline will never go through,” said Paul Wagner, a member of the Saanich First Nation who lives in Redmond, Wash., and goes by the traditional name Cheoketen.“The people are rising up.”(Companies in this story: TSX:KML)— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.last_img read more

Emirates to add second AthensDubai route

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As part of its network updates for 2019, Emirate’s has announced a series of adjustments to its operational schedules which includes Greece, and specifically Athens.In an effort to alleviate pressure from the shut down of Dubai International Airport’s Southern Runway for maintenance work due to occur in April and May 2019 without compromising global travel demand trends, the large airline is adding another Athens-Dubai service.The main flight will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft between 31 March and 15 April and during 1-26 October, whereas during high season from 31 May to 31 September, Emirates will deploy its superjumbo A380 aircraft.However, operating with only one airway will mean that several Emirates flights will be cancelled, re-timed or have the operating aircraft changed in order to reduce impact on customers, the carrier announced in a statement.During the 45-day repairs period, Emirates estimates that 48 aircraft will remain unused and flights are to be reduced by 25 per cent.With Greece being a very popular destination mainly from Australian and UAE based expats, Athens will not be affected negatively by the reduction in the overall number of flights operated alongside destinations across Europe.“Emirates is committed to operating one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the international aviation industry offering unparalleled customer experience and a superior level of safety combined with better fuel efficiency,” the airline said.last_img read more

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Lego Super Heroes Hulkbuster

first_imgStay on target Sonic Soak Is the Tiny Washing Machine That Goes AnywhereThis $500 SEO Tool Is Only $24 Today Bringing up anything related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe this soon as after Avengers: Infinity War feels cruel. It’s still too painful the reopen the wound of (SPOILER ALERT) watching so many beloved characters like Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Bucky Barnes crumble into dust because Thor didn’t kill a CGI character fast enough. And now we have to wait a whole year to see how they get themselves out of this mess.But in the meantime, let’s not cry because they’re gone, let’s smile because they were there. And some original Avengers are still kicking, like Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Besides being the science bros., as of Infinity War Stark and Banner have both also piloted the Hulkbuster armor, and now you can too with this Hulkbuster Lego set.This Lego set ($120) is based on the Age of Ultron version of the Hulkbuster armor, the film where it first appeared. So it features a little armored Iron Man inside the suit ready to fight the Hulk, not plain old Bruce Banner using the suit to make up for the lack of said Hulk. The armor and pilot are the main components, but you can also build a platform for the figure to stand on and classic Stark Industries “dummy” robotic assembly arms.The coolness of Lego, toys you build yourself to feel like a genius, is a perfect match for the Hulkbuster armor, an Iron Man suit that builds itself thanks to Tony Stark’s genius. The little Iron Man minifig makes the size of the nearly foot-tall toy, made to scale, even more impressive. You can move the limbs, light up the chest, and replace one arm with a back-up just like during the South Africa fight in Age of Ultron.Will we get a new version of the Hulkbuster armor in Avengers 4? Will the Hulk himself bust out of it and get revenge on Thanos? It’ll be a torturous few months before we know for sure. So this Lego Hulkbuster set will have to do for now.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Gutierrez guilty in death of Battle Ground 3yearold

first_imgAfter months of growing exasperation, an “innocent event apparently broke the dam of frustration” that led Ricardo Gutierrez Jr. to kill his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son, a judge said Thursday.Clark County Superior Court Judge Robert Lewis found Gutierrez, 41, guilty of first-degree murder in the beating death of Jose “Pepe” Castillo-Cisneros, with an aggravating factor that Pepe was a particularly vulnerable victim. The finding allows for a longer-than-normal sentence if the judge sees fit.Gutierrez was also found guilty of second-degree assault for injuries he inflicted on Pepe’s mother, Yadira Cisneros, who desperately tried to stop the attack May 23, 2016, at their Battle Ground home. Gutierrez was Cisneros’ live-in boyfriend but not Pepe’s biological father.He is facing 23 years to life in prison. Clark County Prosecuting Attorney Tony Golik said the state will ask for an exceptionally long sentence.In August, Gutierrez formally waived his right to a jury trial and opted for Lewis to instead decide his fate.last_img read more

Myanmar in denial over crimes against Rohingya

first_imgA family stands beside remains of a market, which was set on fire in Rohingya village, outside Maungdaw in Rakhine state. ReutersMyanmar’s government remains “in denial” about alleged atrocities by its military against minority Rohingya Muslims, officials present at a meeting in Bangladesh said, despite leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s pledge to investigate the findings of a devastating UN report.The closed-door meeting of diplomats, government officials and international agencies in Dhaka follows a report last week from the United Nations human rights office that said soldiers committed mass killings and gang rapes in a “calculated policy of terror” in Myanmar’s northwestern Rakhine State in recent months.”When Bangladesh cited the horrific acts by Myanmar’s law enforcing agencies, the Myanmar representative did not agree with this and was in complete denial,” said HT Imam, a political advisor to Bangladesh prime minister Sheikh Hasina, who was at the meeting.Three international diplomats also present at the Sunday meeting broadly corroborated that account.The UN high commissioner for human rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein told the New York Times that Suu Kyi had appeared “genuinely moved” by the harrowing 43-page report, released on Friday, expressing no defensiveness or denial.While the Nobel Peace Prize laureate does not have control of the security forces, which remain powerful under Myanmar’s military-drafted constitution, she controls the ministries of foreign affairs and information, which have shaped the country’s public response to the four-month-old crisis in Rakhine.Suu Kyi has been criticised in the West for not speaking out about abuses against the Rohingya.Myanmar has previously denied almost all reports of killings, rapes and arson in northwest Rakhine, where it says its army is engaged in a lawful counterinsurgency campaign.Aye Aye Soe, deputy director at the Myanmar foreign affairs ministry, told Reuters on Monday that Myanmar took the UN findings seriously and would investigate.But she added that the country had been the victim of “disinformation, misinformation and fake news” on the issue that meant “the international community seems to have made up its mind”.”We don’t know if these allegations are true,” said Aye Aye Soe. “If we find that these allegations are true, we will take action.””Illegal Immigrants”About 1.1 million Rohingya live in apartheid-like conditions in northwestern Myanmar, where they are denied citizenship. Many in Buddhist-majority Myanmar regard them as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, while the authorities in Dhaka say they are Myanmar nationals and must ultimately go back.Since the military operation began on 9 October, about 69,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh. The UN report was based on accounts gathered in January from 220 of them.Sunday’s meeting in Dhaka was focused on Bangladesh’s plan to relocate hundreds of thousands of refugees from makeshift camps on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal.A Myanmar diplomat also complained at the meeting about Bangladesh’s description of the Rohingya refugees crossing the border as “undocumented Myanmar nationals”.The presence of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya in the camps in Bangladesh has strained relations between the two countries.Myanmar has said it is willing to discuss the return of those who have crossed the border since October, but is only willing to take back 2,415 of those who arrived before then.”Whether the person is a citizen or not would depend on verification by Myanmar and Bangladesh together. Without going through the process you can’t – one-sided – just label them as our citizens,” said Aye Aye Soe.”You should call them illegal migrants or undocumented people or illegal refugees or whatever.”Myanmar has said the allegations contained in the UN report would be investigated by its own commission on Rakhine, headed by vice-president U Myint Swe, a former general.Zaw Myint Pe, the secretary of that commission, said it had been unable to substantiate any allegations of rape in northern Rakhine since it began its work in December.Describing the testimony of one woman he said: “The way she was talking to us, it seemed like someone had been teaching her. It was difficult to accept that it must be true.”Zaw Myint Pe added that Rohingya villages were like “mazes”, where insurgents could easily shoot at troops, and the confusion caused might have resulted in acts of indiscipline.”So the soldiers might be angry, there might be abuses of power from the government troops,” he said.last_img read more

New York NY — The iconic Hervé Léger bandage dres

first_imgNew York, NY — The iconic Hervé Léger bandage dress, beloved for its impossibly sexy silhouette, has made the label a fashion favorite since its founding in 1985. But it wasn’t until American designer Max Azria took the reins in 2007, relaunching the label with his own designs, that Hervé Léger achieved its current cult status.Always working with the body-conscious bandage dress in mind, each new season at Hervé Léger is akin to reinventing the wheel for Azria. On February 14, the designer presented the fall 2010 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York—and while the line’s devotees can always expect a signature look, Azria still managed to make it feel fresh.Adding cross-laced panels to slinky dresses, bodices and skirts could have easily veered into bondage territory, but instead felt refreshingly sporty. A black neoprene jacket, when paired with a mesh body suit and rubber-print pants, took on the look of ultra-chic scuba gear. Though the palette was overall neutral, blending creams, greys and lots of black, hints of metallic sheen and shots of neon green and pink were woven throughout to add interest.It seems the asymmetrical trend is here to stay for at least another season, as several of the most red carpet-worthy dresses featured a structured one-shoulder shape. And in the midst of all that athleticism, Azria used soft pleating and curved flanges at the hips to keep the femme factor high—a touch that his many glamazon fans, among them Victoria Beckham and Kate Hudson, will surely appreciate.Visit read more
