It’s shown in his work ethic and in the way he treats people.

Police arrest suspect linked to raging wildfire in California

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — Police on Wednesday arrested a man suspected of sparking one the massive wildfires raging across California as firefighters fight to contain the largest fire in state history.Officers arrested 51-year-old Forrest Gordon Clark on multiple charges, including two counts of felony arson, in connection with the Holy Fire, which has charred more than 6,200 acres of land in Riverside and Orange counties, authorities said. He is scheduled for court on Thursday. It’s unclear whether he’s retained an attorney.The man-made blaze was just 5 percent contained on Thursday as firefighters struggled in battling least 18 large wildfires burning throughout California.The largest, the Mendocino Complex Fire in Northern California, has burned at least 302,086 acres since July 27, making it the largest ever seen in the state. It was 47 percent contained as of Wednesday evening and authorities said it probably wouldn’t be contained before September.The second-largest fire, the deadly Carr Fire in Shasta County, has burned more than 176,000 acres over the last few weeks, fire officials said. It has killed seven people and destroyed more than 1,000 homes.More than 14,000 firefighters are working to curb the blazes amid sweltering temperatures and super-dry conditions.California’s firefighting expenses have more than tripled from $242 million in the 2013 fiscal year to $773 million in the 2018 fiscal year that ended June 30, according to Cal Fire.President Donald Trump on Wednesday issued a directive ordering federal agencies to prioritize protection of life and property over endangered species in effort to free up water resources, although officials said a lack of water wasn’t a problem.“California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren’t allowing massive amounts of readily available water to be properly utilized,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “It is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Must also tree clear to stop fire from spreading!”Some state officials criticized the president’s directive.“We have plenty of water to fight these fires,” Deputy Cal Fire Chief Scott McLean said in a statement. “The Carr fire has Whiskeytown Lake, Shasta Lake and Trinity Lake just to name a few water sources. The Mendocino Complex is next to Clearlake Lake. The current weather is causing more severe and destructive fires.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

We’re in the dark on dietary supplements. She’s working to change that.

first_imgThe world of dietary supplements can seem like the Wild West, with the dizzying vitamin alphabet lumped with a lineup of minerals that sound as if they belong in an industrial vat rather than our bodies.JoAnn Manson, Harvard Medical School’s Michael and Lee Bell Professor of Women’s Health, professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and chief of the Division of Preventive Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, has made a career of studying population health.Manson recently co-authored a Viewpoint article in the Journal of the American Medical Association highlighting what scientists do and don’t know about supplements, and providing guidance to doctors on what to recommend to patients. In addition, she is in the middle of two trials exploring the health effects of some of the most widely used supplements, including vitamin D, fish oil, multivitamins, and cocoa.Q&AJoAnn MansonGAZETTE: What makes the landscape of vitamins and supplements so confusing that even doctors need guidance?MANSON: Vitamins are big business — more than $30 billion a year. Anytime you go to a supermarket or drug store, you’re going to see aisles and aisles of vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements. There’s also a lot of talk about vitamins in the media.Research studies on vitamins have often had discrepant findings. That’s partly because some studies are randomized trials while others are observational. Observational studies look at people who choose to take supplements, and examine their risk of heart disease, cancer, or other outcomes. In contrast, in a randomized clinical trial, people agree to be assigned at random to take vitamins versus a placebo. The different studies tend to provide different results for dietary supplements, but often the media does not make a distinction between the two. Observational studies tend to show that people who choose to take supplements are healthier, but that may be because they are more health-conscious and also have healthier diets and healthier lifestyles.GAZETTE: So because of the design of the research, it might be a self-selected healthier population that is being studied?MANSON: Exactly. There can be selection for more health-conscious people who are also compliant with taking supplements long-term, as well as confounding by other lifestyle practices, such as physical activity and diet.The randomized clinical trials avoid bias from selection and confounding factors, and they tend to show little, if any, benefit of these supplements in healthy individuals. And the randomized trials have also identified risks. Randomized trials of beta-carotene show increased risk of lung cancer in smokers, randomized trials of vitamin E show increased risk of heart failure, bleeding-related strokes, prostate cancer, and even all-cause mortality in some studies. There’s also some concern about selenium in high doses.So it’s a very confusing literature because the observational studies and randomized trials have provided some discrepant results while the public is bombarded with hype about supplements in the media and advertising. That said, the observational studies do have the advantage of being able to assess long-term use — over decades — while randomized trials tend to be shorter, often less than five years, due to their higher cost.GAZETTE: Is the industry regulated?MANSON: It is not regulated the way prescription drugs are. If clear risks are identified, supplements can be taken off the market, but generally supplement makers don’t have to prove their products are effective — or safe — when they’re put on the market as over-the-counter supplements. That’s why we also recommend that people look on the labels for signs of quality control and external, independent audits, such as the U.S. Pharmacopeia  or NSF International, or for some indication that the products have been tested for quality — that they actually have the content that it says on the label, that they’re free of microbes and heavy metals.GAZETTE: Let’s talk about your own work. This is an area in which you have a couple of trials going on, right?MANSON: Right. We’re now analyzing the data and finishing up the vitamin D and omega-3 trial VITAL. That’s a large-scale, randomized trial of vitamin D with and without omega-3 fatty acids, or fish oil. There are four treatment groups, more than 25,000 participants nationwide, and we’re looking at each of these interventions for prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease. We’re also looking at cognitive function, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and a number of other disorders. So we’re testing these very commonly used dietary supplements for their efficacy and safety over an average of five years.We’re also doing a large-scale, randomized trial of multivitamins and cocoa flavonol supplements, the COSMOS trial. Even though multivitamins are used by half of the population, we have very little data on their efficacy or safety. There’s been only one previous large-scale, randomized trial of multivitamins. That was in men, the Physicians’ Health Study II, and we’re now testing it in both men and women.GAZETTE: How do you pick your trial topics? Are you looking to debunk or confirm information that might be in front of the public?MANSON: The goal isn’t to refute previous findings. We’re looking at what we think are promising supplements. We’re trying to identify dietary supplements that are effective and have a favorable benefit/risk profile.GAZETTE: What is the evidence so far for healthy adults?MANSON: It’s very limited. Pregnant women should take folic acid and prenatal vitamins to avoid neural tube defects and related birth defects. That includes women of reproductive age who are planning to become pregnant or may become pregnant, including those who are not taking reliable birth control. Some of these risks can occur in the very early weeks of pregnancy, often before women know they’re pregnant.There are guidelines for infants, especially infants who are breastfed, and older adults. Aside from those groups, there is minimal evidence that routine vitamin or mineral supplementation will benefit healthy individuals. Targeted supplementation in high-risk individuals, such as those with osteoporosis, malabsorption, or those taking certain medications, is a separate question.People are generally encouraged to get vitamins and minerals from a healthy, well-balanced diet. Micronutrients are better absorbed through the diet and a person will receive many other beneficial components besides these micronutrients. And through the diet, you get the optimal biological ratio of vitamins and minerals as opposed to a mega-dose of a particular supplement that can cause harm and may interfere with the absorption or bioavailability of other vitamins and minerals.GAZETTE: What about people who are on the go and don’t really eat healthy diets?MANSON: If someone is really concerned about their diet, they’re not having fruits and vegetables for whatever reason, they’re eating a lot of processed foods — which actually can strip foods of vitamins and minerals and healthful micronutrients — and they don’t think they can improve or modify their diet, then it’s reasonable to take a multivitamin or other vitamin-mineral supplement as a form of insurance. However, it’s still not a substitute for a healthy diet. It’s not going to be as good as having whole foods, avoiding processed foods, getting benefits like fiber, polyphenols, and phytochemicals from fruits and vegetables and whole grains. It’s really important to have a healthful diet regardless.GAZETTE: Why don’t we speak briefly about two subgroups. For infants and children, is vitamin D is important?MANSON: The American Academy of Pediatrics says to use vitamin D supplementation in a breastfed infant until weaning. This is because there’s very little vitamin D in breast milk unless the mother has a very high intake of vitamin D. We want to encourage women to breastfeed, because there are so many advantages to the baby, but the vitamin D does need to be supplemented. Also, iron at 4-6 months.GAZETTE: And for older adults, are there specific recommendations?MANSON: Older adults often have a poorer diet. They may also have a problem with absorption of some vitamins and minerals. The main ones to think about are B12, calcium, and vitamin D. B12 deficiency can be a problem, especially with pernicious anemia. With calcium and vitamin D, we encourage food sources, but supplements may be necessary — some people are lactose-intolerant or don’t eat dairy products. Avoid excess amounts of calcium supplements because they’ve been linked to an increased risk of kidney stones.GAZETTE: For the calcium and vitamin D, are we talking about avoiding osteoporosis?MANSON: It’s mostly bone health for the calcium and vitamin D. That’s been well established. But vitamin D has also been implicated in heart health, cognitive health, and reducing risk of cancer and diabetes. There’s no definitive evidence yet. That’s why we’re doing the VITAL trial, and other trials of vitamin D are ongoing throughout the world.Vitamin and mineral supplementation is a complicated subject. I hope we can make it a little clearer to the public because the messages have been so confusing. It’s very difficult for the public to separate fact from fiction, and understand what is just hype and marketing and promotion as opposed to actual evidence and facts.Interview was edited for clarity and length.last_img read more

Officials Spar Over Downtown Lot Redevelopment

first_imgRED BANK – A long-protracted, large, downtown residential project may have moved a little closer to being realized with a narrowly split Planning Board decision.The borough Planning Board on Monday in a 5-4 vote, endorsed what has become a controversial proposal to consider the long- vacant 55 West Front St. property as a site in need of redevelopment under provisions in a state statute. But that narrow vote didn’t come until after a lengthy debate on the plan that, like with the board’s discussion, has become increasingly divisive in the community – and a pointed political issue in this year’s local election.Technically the vote at Monday evening’s meeting was to see if the board supported the analysis conducted by the borough special redevelopment counsel, Andrew Bayer, and land use planner Anthony Rodriguez, indicating that the non-condemnation redevelopment proposal conforms with the borough master plan for long-term land development goals.The discussion among board members, though, came down to those who see this as a necessary step for much-needed new development to encourage vibrancy in the community and those who allege the plan is a giveaway to a developer, who failed to win a prior approval from the borough Zoning Board of Adjustment.“This is the sort of property this law was aimed at,” Rodriguez said of the long-fallow Front Street site, referring to the state statute that would permit the development.Board member Dan Mancuso, however, voiced concern about the process with local officials “going around and around…for this one owner, because they don’t want to build what fits,” with other board members maintaining this seemed like an attempted end-run around the local zoning board, which had previously denied this application.Board member Linda Cohen, on the other hand, said, “I think this is a very good and perfect opportunity to move forward.”TANTUM, a Jersey City real estate development firm, offered plans to construct the Element, a four-story, 35-unit upscale apartment complex and parking tier on the approximately one-acre site, across the street from the borough’s Riverside Gardens Park. The property has been vacant for about a decade and had previously been home to the Meridian Extended Care facility.The zoning board this spring denied the application, citing the size and density of the project and other concerns. In response, the developer approached Mayor Pasquale Menna about allowing the project to be reconsidered, as opposed to the developer appealing the board denial to Superior Court.Menna and the governing body had considered this site and the White Street municipal parking lot as two locations in need of redevelopment for the community’s betterment. The parking lot is under consideration for a possible future parking garage to address the chronic downtown parking shortage.But the 55 West Front St. consideration has caused a stir among officials and the community. It has seemed to drive a wedge between Menna and his Democratic colleagues on the council who have expressed reservations over it. Menna now seems allied with council Republicans who are supporting this redevelopment. The mayor maintains this redevelopment is a needed and useful tool that would benefit the community in the long run.This is one topic that has seemed to take center stage for November’s election. And Planning Board member and Borough Councilman Michael Whelan, a Republican, said the opposition is politically motivated and preventing this would further hobble the already struggling downtown commercial district.With the board’s ultimate acceptance of the plan, the matter moves to the borough council to draft an ordinance.Proponents insist this is just another step in a long process. Should the ordinance eventually be approved, the property developer will have to once again submit a completed project site plan. But now the matter would be evaluated by the planning board, where the burden is less stringent than before the zoning board.last_img read more

Animals Have Biological GPS

first_imgGlobal Positioning System (GPS): that’s a function.  Maintaining a suite of satellites is one method for achieving the function.  But there are other ways to figure out where in the world you are, and two very different animals show the way – naturally – using Earth’s global magnetic field.Pigeon GPS:  A team of researchers from Baylor College inserted electrodes into pigeons’ brains, then exposed them to artificial magnetic fields in the absence of visual cues.  According to New Scientist, they found that 53 particular neurons associated with the pigeon’s inner ear became particularly active when the magnetic field was altered.  They surmise these neurons are part of the bird’s auditory map, “acting as a biological GPS.”  The neurons even responded to the polarity of the field.  This would allow a pigeon released below the equator to orient itself correctly to fly home.The BBC News focused on how this new finding contradicts earlier studies that located the birds’ magnetic sense in the beak or eye.  “Be puzzled, because I am,” remarked David Dickman, one of the authors of the study.  Other mysteries to be resolved include how the birds detect the Earth’s magnetic field in the first place, and how they don’t become disoriented when they tilt their heads.  “One possibility is that they use a combination of the magnetic GPS and the pull of gravity to triangulate their position,” the article surmised.  See also 4/24/2007 about pigeon navigation.Butterfly GPS:  Another article by the BBC News from September 2009 talked about biological GPS – in this case, among Monarch butterflies.  That study indicated that the insects’ GPS is located in the antennae.  For previous entries about Monarch navigation, see 7/29/2002, 5/23/2003 and 5/09/2005.  The documentary  Metamorphosis from Illustra Media brings the wonder of Monarch migration to life on the screen.Given that many animals migrate, including fish, reptiles and mammals, in addition to birds and insects, there may be many and varied biological methods for achieving the function of GPS.  For previous stories about biological GPS, see 6/29/2006 about ants, and 7/15/2009 about dragonfly long-distance migration.    Even the human body possesses GPS-like devices (see 12/27/2008).No mention of evolution in these articles.  A natural wonder?  No evolution?  No wonder.

Vultures on pylons study launched

first_img8 February 2008Eskom, in association with the Rhino and Lion Wildlife Conservation organisation, has launched the Vulture Enclosure research project in an effort to reduce the number of vultures and other birds from being electrocuted on power lines at Skeerpoort, in the Hartebeespoort Dam area to the west of Pretoria.Eskom said in a statement on Wednesday that the project aimed to reduce bird electrocutions in the identified danger zones on pylons with the application of cost-effective measures such as insulation covers and bird diverters.Eskom Corporate Services MD Steve Lennon said the vulture enclosure would serve a dual purpose: “Firstly, it will allow the rehabilitated vultures the opportunity to recuperate before they are released back into the wild; secondly, it will support research studies in vulture behaviour on the identified problem towers in order to prevent and limit the continuous vulture electrocutions on power lines.”It was difficult and time-consuming in the past to observe vulture behaviour on problematic Eskom structures, as mitigation methods were based on laboratory simulation studies combined with field observations and assumptions.The vulture enclosure will provide the research team with the opportunity to monitor in detail actual vulture behaviour patterns on the structures and their reactions towards various mitigation methods applied in various scenarios.The enclosure will therefore serve as a field laboratory to approve effective mitigation products and the rehabilitation of injured vultures.Vulture Programme manager Kerri Wolter believes the partnership supports work being undertaken by Eskom to address the threats that South Africa’s vultures are facing.“What we have begun for Magaliesberg is an example of what could be done throughout southern Africa,” Wolter said. “Power lines are one of our major threats causing the ongoing decline of vultures, and Eskom has shown their conservation value and drive to conserve this vulnerable species through this initiative.”“This is a perfect example of what organisations should be doing to help conserve our natural heritage.”SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
