where about half the provinces residents are ethnic Uighurs, We cannot wait. the magnitude of his accomplishments put in context ranks among the greatest military feats of the modern era. hero and great Biafran warrior of our time Chief (Col) Joe Achuzia. its best to save the $100 and go with the Mini 2, effectively, Hours after her defeat, Talks were apparently going so well on Tuesday afternoon that Trump showed Kim his limo,which he wrote was "inspired by paying 95 cents for a rotten avocado" Microbes he argued don’t just happen to spoil food when they gorge on it; they have evolved to make it unappetizing to large animals as fast as possible—for instance by producing bad-tasting compounds—so they can keep the meal to themselves "Fruits rot seeds mold and meat spoils because that is the way microbes compete with bigger organisms" he wrote (He also hypothesized that plants which benefit from animals spreading their seeds may have developed countermechanisms such as producing chemicals to repel fungi and bacteria) Some researchers have gone to great lengths to see whether the idea actually holds true in nature In one experiment US scientists baited crab traps off the coast of Georgia with fresh or rotten fish and found that fresh carrion attracted almost three times as many animals showing that "bacteria compete with large animal scavengers by rendering carcasses chemically repugnant" according to the study Other experiments have shown that birds prefer fresh fruits to rotten ones But in 2006 four scientists tried to build Janzen’s theory into a mathematical model and ran into trouble They found that if microbes put extra work into spoiling the food for large animals they would be outcompeted by others that did not bother Janzen’s idea sounded plausible but was unlikely to be true they concluded The disgusting taste of a rotten apple in their view was more likely an accidental byproduct of its breakdown by microbes Now some of the researchers who built that earlier model have revisited the topic but they changed a key assumption: "In our original model pretty much any microbe could arrive anywhere" says David Wilkinson an ecologist at the Liverpool John Moores University in the United Kingdom and one of the authors That meant that any rotting fruit would likely be colonized by all kinds of microorganisms In that scenario microbes that evolved to spoil food would always be outcompeted by microbes that just reaped the benefits without investing in spoiling the food themselves "In the new model they do not move quite as easily and that is the crucial biological difference" The new model predicts that "even in the extreme case where there is a very high cost to spoilage … spoiling microbes can be sustained" the authors write online today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B In essence the old model viewed rotting fruit as a buffet with all kinds of microbes in attendance explains Michael Kaspari a biologist at the University of Oklahoma Norman who was not involved in the work "The poisoner taking the time to [spoil the food for large animals] while everybody else is stuffing their mouths gained little advantage" he writes in an e-mail "The new model allowed for the more realistic possibility that if the poisoner gets to the party first it can keep everybody else at bay As long as there are enough parties poisoners prosper" Experiments are still needed to back up the assumptions of the new model Wilkinson cautions He suggests that biologists should try to track which microbes arrive on a fruit or a dead animal over time "With birds you would just sit there with a pair of binoculars and see what turns up" he says "With microbes it is not that easy but it is not entirely impossible with molecular methods" Even then however it will be hard to prove that microbes are actually targeting large animals; they could also be trying to repel other microbes Kaspari argues "To a microbe busily rotting a banana do we even exist" Janzen who now works at the University of Pennsylvania says he is happy that his idea has been converted into a plausible model But he doesn’t really need mathematics to know he is right "Have you ever bitten into a piece of moldy bread or a spoiled orange to say nothing of over-ripe fish" he writes in an e-mail "How much theory did you need for your reaction Who won” But whatever his reservations the research is worthwhile Janzen says "It is good to have people exploring the interactions between microbes and us big guys" Following a high-pressure campaign from animal rights activists the final ferry company that carried research animals between the United Kingdom and Europe has stopped the service academic funders announced today The news will complicate the sharing of animals between international research groups which rely on the transit of live animals when shipping frozen embryos is not practical Passenger carrier Stena Lines enacted the policy change in January in response to a campaign by the National Anti-Vivisection Alliance a UK-based group Other ferry companies that serve the United Kingdom including DFDS and P&O Ferries also stopped carrying laboratory animals in recent months P&O Ferries spokesperson Chris Laming says that the company’s handling of primates for research which had been longstanding "suddenly became of interest to the anti-vivisection groups" last year Directors of the company received letters at their home addresses and employees throughout the company received e-mails from around the world "All the while we had carried those animals discreetly without people knowing but when the company’s reputation comes under fire in an organized way we felt it was time to take the decision to stop" Laming says Similar methods were directed at employees of DFDS Spokesperson Gert Jakobsen says managers were sent abusive e-mails and campaigners threatened demonstrations at ports Carriage of laboratory animals represents a minuscule income stream for passenger ferries Jakobsen says so DFDS judged it not worth the controversy UK government statistics indicate that three in every 1000 UK research animals comes from abroad Most of the animals transported are mice which sometimes cannot be shipped as frozen embryos Researchers turn to shipping live animals when they cannot reconstitute genetically-identical animals using other techniques or when receiving laboratories don’t have the necessary equipment to handle frozen material The new constraints on animal transport could hinder research and force institutions to duplicate efforts including breeding more animals warns a statement released today by academic funders including the Medical Research Council Wellcome Trust and Association of Medical Research Charities International animal transit relies mostly on airlines in part because they offer shorter travel times that are easier on the animals Ferries have been increasingly relied upon in the United Kingdom; however since previous campaigns by animal rights activists have caused airlines and airports to enact restrictions on the trade Those past campaigns have been more violent than the present one In 2004 vandals attacked the homes and vehicles of senior managers at firms they claimed were involved in importing animals In the early 1990s activists campaigning against the shipment of livestock mailed a letter bomb to a senior executive of Stena Sealink (the predecessor of Stena Lines) which exploded and injured a secretary Laming of P&O Ferries says that ferry companies have a long memory of such threats "Because we have experience of this kind of protest we understand the implications and have no wish to antagonize people like that to be honest" he says "The business wasn’t worth that much" An editorial by former Science Minister Paul Drayson which appears today in The Times newspaper argues that the companies themselves should accept some responsibility "Very few animals are transported into and out of the UK for medical research so it’s understandable that these companies conclude that the risk of protests outweighs the modest financial gain However these companies also have a wider responsibility to society" Drayson writes "Unlike previous animal rights campaigns this attack against airlines and shipping companies has not been conducted in the public eye but it has been no less damaging for the UK’s global reputation" he added "We need to support our transport industry in standing up to these people The last ferry company pulling out of transporting animals must surely be the red flag that brings all sides together to sort this issue out The time has come for the UK’s scientists and politicians to make a stand"" said McConnell. The court said the most significant of the facts placed before it is the probability that the accused will return to court for trial.
