A Third State of Emergency Declared in Jamaica

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica – For the third time this year, Prime Minister of Jamaica Andrew Holness has declared a state of emergency (SOE) in Jamaica, this time in Clarendon and St Catherine.Speaking at a press conference at Jamaica House on Thursday morning, Holness said the drastic increase in crime in both parishes have led to the need for an SOE. The SOE will be in effect for between 14 days and three months.“This should come as no surprise. The last time I was here, I said that the next time I am at this podium, a state of emergency would be in Clarendon. St Catherine is an addition to this,” Holness said.Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson said, year to date, the parish of Clarendon has been responsible for 100 murders while 91 persons have been killed in the St Catherine South Police Division and 66 in St Catherine North.“The high level of violence has been undermining the lives of residents,” Anderson said.He said the police would be placing a heavy emphasis on investigative strategy and technology. “Our objectives are to maintain a low violence environment and to disrupt gang activity,” Anderson said.In April of this year, a tri-state SOE was declared in the western parishes of Westmoreland, Hanover and St James. In July, a second SOE was declared in the corporate area police division of St Andrew South.Residents of Jamaica continue to criticized the Holness administration’s decision to implement a series of SOEs across Jamaica, with no other measures of tackling crime in the country. But Andrew Holness has constantly defended his decision, saying the government is doing the best they can to implement strategies to fight crime.last_img read more

DNA Folds With Molecular Velcro

first_imgMany have heard how the inventor of Velcro got the idea from plant seeds that stick to clothing, but now Carlos Bustamente and team of Howard Hughes Medical Institute have found a velcro-like principle operating at a scale millions of times smaller.  Small proteins called condensins are involved in the elaborate folding that DNA undergoes as it is wrapped into chromosomes.  The team developed an ingenious method of gently pulling on DNA strands compacted with condensin.  Bustamente relates, “when we began to pull it apart carefully, we saw it extend in a sawtooth pattern of force, like the click-click-click of Velcro unzipping.”  When they relaxed the force, it collapsed back, then repeated the same pattern when pulled apart again.  “That perfect reproducibility strongly suggested to Bustamante and his colleagues that they were seeing a condensed structure with a well defined organization,” the press release explains.  Surprisingly, this reversible reaction did not require the expenditure of ATP.This is just one of the clever design features in the cell that allows over six feet of fragile DNA to be folded and compacted into a nucleus a few millionths of an inch wide.  For a simplified view of how this all works, see the PBS “Journey Into DNA,” available in Flash format or as a web page.  (The condensin comes into play in the frames where DNA forms tight loops.)  Even more amazing is that this tight packing still allows the translation machinery to find the right gene, gain access, and do its work.  For a glimpse of this additional complexity, see the 06/13/2002 and 03/08/2002 headlines.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Shah Rukh Khan is now Interpol’s Turn Back Crime ambassador

first_imgBollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been roped in as an ambassador for Interpol’s “Turn Back Crime” campaign to promote awareness on how everyone can play a role in preventing crime.SRK, said to be the first Indian to be made an ambassador for the global campaign, is lending his voice to help spread the message that all of society benefits when citizens respect law and fight crime.Shah Rukh Khan shares his pic after being signed as Interpol’s ambassador for a crime prevention campaign. Twitter “It’s a very special honour to be a part of Interpol’s Turn Back Crime campaign as an ambassador,” said Shah Rukh.”As Mahatma Gandhi once said, ‘I shall not fear anyone on Earth. I shall fear only god. I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering, if I have to.”We all should believe in this maxim and in whatever way possible resolve not to let unjust people who might threaten us with criminal activity make us fear them.”Because I believe we can, we should, and we must stand together against the few who commit crimes against any human being, in whatever form or guise these crimes might take,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.SRK joins actor Jackie Chan as an ambassador for the campaign, which has already garnered support from public figures including footballer Lionel Messi, Formula 1 racing drivers Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen in addition to law enforcement agencies around the world.advertisementShah Rukh Khan shows off his Turn Back Crime Band. Twitter  Interpol’s Turn Back Crime campaign is aimed at raising public awareness that organised crime is often involved in seemingly unrelated crimes.Drug trafficking, human trafficking, counterfeiting, cyber crime, kidnapping, crimes against children and corruption in sport are in fact often interconnected, with profits from one crime area used to fund another.The Turn Back Crime campaign is aimed at helping the public better understand these issues and empowering them not to be duped by criminals when buying products or using the internet.”Shah Rukh Khan has dedicated his life to making films which reflect the highest level of professionalism and commitment to bringing joy into the lives of hundreds of millions of filmgoers in India and around the world,” said Interpol secretary general Ronald K. Noble.”We are honoured to have him as an ambassador for Interpol’s global Turn Back Crime campaign and we look forward to seeing how he puts his artistic talents behind this campaign,” the Interpol chief said.The Turn Back Crime campaign is also reaching out to companies and policy-makers in a bid to form a united front against contemporary crime challenges, and to support the ongoing activities of the global law enforcement community.last_img read more

In big trouble: Warriors down 3-1 in NBA Finals

first_imgGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) looks up during a stoppage in play during the first half against the Toronto Raptors in Game 4 of basketball’s NBA Finals, Friday, June 7, 2019, in Oakland, Calif. (Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP)OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State coach Steve Kerr is fond of saying that the Warriors have seen everything in their five-year run as the best team in the NBA.They are now looking at something they haven’t faced before.ADVERTISEMENT And then they scored three points the rest of the way, before making the long, slow walk off the court and to the locker room.It’s very possible they made that walk at Oracle for the last time.When Golden State was down 3-1 in the West finals to Oklahoma City — and Durant — in 2016, it needed to win just one road game in order to escape that mess.They need to win in Toronto twice now, after not being able to win at home even once.Now, the biggest challenge of the Warriors’ five-year run is officially here.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Golden State’s hopes of a third straight title are hanging by a most precarious thread. The Warriors will be quick to say that even a 3-1 deficit in the finals isn’t insurmountable.They know.The Warriors learned that the hard way. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP LATEST STORIES They’ve successfully overcome a 3-1 deficit in the playoffs before — but never in the NBA Finals, and never when they needed to win two road games to win the series.Such is their predicament. Oracle Arena might have seen the Warriors for the last time. The Larry O’Brien Trophy might be hoisted in Canada on Monday night. The Toronto Raptors are in full control of these NBA Finals, their 105-92 win on Friday night giving them a 3-1 lead and putting them on the brink of winning their first title.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Raptors close in on historic NBA title, beat Warriors for 3-1 lead MOST READ Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday PLAY LIST 03:12Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday01:43Who are Filipinos rooting for in the NBA Finals?01:48NBA: Kawhi, George seek more for Clippers than beating Lakers02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss They blew such a lead in 2016, falling twice at home to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. But the Warriors’ collapse that year was largely due to Andrew Bogut getting hurt in Game 5 and Draymond Green losing his cool and earning a one-game suspension. The Raptors have no such injury concerns, no such behavioral matters to deal with right now.The Raptors are as poised as can be.They were in trouble in each of the first three rounds of these playoffs — down 1-0 to Orlando, down 2-1 to Philadelphia, down 2-0 to Milwaukee. It steeled them. Toronto got better every step of the way.Golden State looked the exact opposite on Friday night. The Warriors are still without Kevin Durant, endured a night where Stephen Curry struggled, and where their biggest boosts came from Klay Thompson returning from a balky hamstring and Kevon Looney playing through the pain of a cartilage injury in his upper body.The Warriors made a run. Curry’s 3-pointer with 3 minutes left pulled Golden State within eight and gave the Warriors a chance.ADVERTISEMENT Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting View commentslast_img read more
