Carpenter dies in Houston accident

first_imgA West Bank Demerara (WBD) man is now dead after he was struck down late Friday evening while crossing the public road at Houston, Greater Georgetown. The accident occurred sometime around 23:00h.Dead is Ryan Ragubir, 42, of Lot 13 Nismes Old Road, WBD. Ragubir worked as a carpenter at the Gafoors Houston Complex.Dead: Ryan RagubirAccording to reports, after work on Friday, the father of one along with four other co-workers went to a nearby shop where they consumed alcohol. Later, the men left the shop and attempted to cross over to the other side of the East Bank Highway.At the same time, a car that was proceeding north on the western carriageway struck Ragubir, who was walking behind two of his co-workers. He was picked up by Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) in an ambulance and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead. He reportedly sustained a broken neck.Speaking with this newspaper, the man’s sister, Nalini, related that she last saw her brother Friday morning before he left for work and that they were only informed about this death Saturday morning after one of his co-workers went to their home with the tragic news.At the time this newspaper contacted the woman, she was waiting at the Ruimveldt Police Station to talk to the Police and was not sure about what had transpired. However, she noted that based on her conversation with the driver of the car, HB 8532, he noticed the men crossing too late and attempted to swerve from hitting them but struck Ragubir, who was walking at the back.The car at the Ruimveldt Police StationMeanwhile, one of the co-workers, who was present when the accident occurred, explained that the road was clear when they left the western carriageway to cross over to the eastern side. He recalled that he and another co-worker were in front talking as they were crossing while Ragubir was right behind.The co-worker added that he and the other man had already crossed the median and were on the eastern carriageway when he heard the impact and upon turning around, he did not see Ragubir. The man had fallen onto the bonnet of the car and was rendered unconscious.Ragubir leaves to mourn a six-year-old son, siblings and other family.The driver of the car has since been arrested and is assisting with the investigations.last_img read more

Can Gene Duplication Promote Evolution?

first_imgImagine you had no mouth but needed to eat.  A hamburger comes flying at you.  When it hits your body, your skin folds around it and pinches off, sealing it inside.  Dozens of 3-armed parts form a geodesic dome around it and carry it to the stomach.  Once delivered, all the parts are recycled for the incoming freedom fries.    If this sounds bizarre, it’s kind of what really happens in your cells.  Except for specialized channels that accept particular molecules, like water (12/20/2001 and salt (01/17/2002), a cell has no mouth; it is surrounded by a continuous membrane.  When large nutrients need to get in, the membrane has acceptors on the outside that signal a cascade of events.  The membrane dents inward and envelops the particle.  On the inside, proteins called clathrins form a geodesic structure around the incoming vesicle as the membrane pinches off and seals the contents inside.  Other proteins and enzymes stand at the ready to deliver the nutrient where needed.  This process goes on continually and is called endocytosis.  A press release from the University of Queensland says the cell eats its entire skin every 30 minutes.    Progress continues to be made understanding clathrin-mediated endocytosis since our 10/07/2003 entry, but the evolutionary origin of this elegant system seems illusory.  UC and Stanford biochemists writing in PNAS1 noted that two forms of clathrin are so different, being coded by different genes, they must have had separate evolutionary histories.  They propose this happened during gene duplication events up to 600 million years ago.    Andreas Wagner, however, publishing in Molecular Biology and Evolution,2 casts doubt on that method of evolutionary change:I here estimate the energy cost of changes in gene expression for several thousand genes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.  A doubling of gene expression, as it occurs in a gene duplication event, is significantly selected against for all genes for which expression data is available.  It carries a median selective disadvantage of s > 10�5, several times greater than the selection coefficient s = 1.47 x 10�7 below which genetic drift dominates a mutant’s fate.  When considered separately, increases in messenger RNA expression or protein expression by more than a factor 2 also have significant energy costs for most genes.  This means that the evolution of transcription and translation rates is not an evolutionarily neutral process.  They are under active selection opposing them.  My estimates are based on genome-scale information of gene expression in the yeast S. cerevisiae as well as information on the energy cost of biosynthesizing amino acids and nucleotides.   (Emphasis added in all quotes.)Whatever the origin of clathrin, its reputation as a versatile molecule is growing.  In the April 28 issue of Nature,3 three Cambridge biologists wondered what it does when endocytosis is halted during cell division.  They discovered that clathrin has another essential job:Clathrin has an established function in the generation of vesicles that transfer membrane and proteins around the cell.  The formation of clathrin-coated vesicles occurs continuously in non-dividing cells, but is shut down during mitosis, when clathrin concentrates at the spindle apparatus.  Here, we show that clathrin stabilizes fibres of the mitotic spindle to aid congression of chromosomes.  Clathrin bound to the spindle directly by the amino-terminal domain of clathrin heavy chain.  Depletion of clathrin heavy chain using RNA interference prolonged mitosis; kinetochore fibres were destabilized, leading to defective congression of chromosomes to the metaphase plate and persistent activation of the spindle checkpoint.  Normal mitosis was rescued by clathrin triskelia [complete 3-part clathrin proteins] but not the N-terminal domain of clathrin heavy chain, indicating that stabilization of kinetochore fibres was dependent on the unique structure of clathrin.This is not just an incidental task for clathrin to do till cell division is over.  “The importance of clathrin for normal mitosis,” they say, “may be relevant to understanding human cancers that involve gene fusions of clathrin heavy chain.”1Wakeham et al., “Clathrin heavy and light chain isoforms originated by independent mechanisms of gene duplication during chordate evolution,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, 10.1073/pnas.0502058102, published online before print May 9, 2005.2Andreas Wagner, “Energy Constraints on the Evolution of Gene Expression,” Molecular Biology and Evolution, 2005 22(6):1365-1374; doi:10.1093/molbev/msi126.3Royle et al., “Clathrin is required for the function of the mitotic spindle,” Nature 434, 1152-1157 (28 April 2005) | doi: 10.1038/nature03502.Gene duplication is one of the mechanisms Darwinists invoke when Natural Selection seems inadequate for a job, and they want to make it seem like there are other tricks in the toolkit of Charlie the Magician.  The abstract of Wagner’s paper seems to make it clear that duplication is not going to help.  If two tools are fighting each other, like front and rear tires spinning in opposite directions, the vehicle is not going anywhere.  Now go back and reread the 10/07/2003 entry about endocytosis and see if you think the Darwin Party has a prayer for explaining it.  Be sure to watch Allison Bruce’s cool video of clathrin making geodesic domes.  How many of you would vote for chance and natural selection producing this geometrical marvel?  Someone other than a Darwinist, who not only has a prayer but a Recipient, should get a hearing.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Denel to supply Malaysian army

first_img23 April 2010Denel will be part of a number of companies to supply the Malaysian Armed Forces with 8×8 vehicle turrets.According to the state owned company, it will be part of several companies that will form a partnership for the joint manufacture of turrets after it received a letter of intent from Malaysian company Deftech.Deftech has become one of the main suppliers of defence, security and commercial vehicles to the Malaysian Armed Forces and other government and quasi-government agencies.The letter was handed over to Denel after Deftech received it from the Malaysian minister for defence.Denel group benefitsThe programme includes the supply of fully integrated 8×8 vehicle systems to the Malaysian Armed Forces over seven years, Denel said.Stephan Burger, CEO of Denel Land Systems, a division of Denel, said Denel was honoured to be selected as technology partner for the turrets, and as system integrator for the programme.“This is an indication that Deftech has confidence in Denel’s capabilities,” Burger said in Pretoria this week. “This is further good news for the Denel group, as the programme extends to other Denel business entities such as Denel Dynamics for the Ingwe Missiles and PMP for ammunition.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

CWG scam: MS Gill, Sunil Dutt had warned PM on Suresh Kalmadi

first_imgFormer sports minister Mani Shankar Aiyar wasn’t the only one to raise an alarm about Suresh Kalmadi. New revelations are bound to further embarrass the Prime Minister’s Office.   Former sports ministers M.S. Gill and the late Sunil Dutt had also red flagged the former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief and his methods. In a letter dated September 26, 2007, Gill had pointed out the astonishing jump in costs for holding the Games and hinted at gross mismanagement. Gill had written, “At the time of the agreement, they were to be about Rs 200 crore. It is now something less than Rs 800 crore and we are coming to the Cabinet soon for something above Rs 1600 crore. In the past, the (Organising) Committee rarely met and generally endorsed post-facto decisions, taken in a highly centralised system.” As far back as 2004, late Sports Minister Sunil Dutt had lodged a strong protest against the appointment of Suresh Kalmadi, now sacked and languishing in jail. Dutt had written: “I was surprised to see newspaper reports about a resolution passed by Indian Olympic Association (lOA) regarding appointment of President, lOA as Chairman of the Organising Committee, which is at variance with the decisions taken in the GOM meeting.” Headlines Today had broadcast letters written by Aiyar, warning the PM of financial bungling by the Kalmadi-led OC. In the letter written on October 25, 2007 Aiyar had written: “I grow increasingly alarmed at the profligacy of CWG OC Chairman. Present projections of CWG expenditure have topped Rs 20,000 crore!” Aiyar had even contested the PM’s claim that his objections were merely ideological. “Hope this refreshes his memory,” Aiyar said.  Caught in a bind, the then MoS in the PMO, tried to clear the air in vain. Prithivraj Chavan says, “I am not aware what Mani Shankar Aiyer has said. There are many things which are said. I would have to see what he had said. It was a courtesy meet. There were certain pending issues.” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said despite the letters, “the loot was on”. advertisementlast_img read more

McCain Sets Sights on Pentagons Organizational Structure

first_imgAfter reforming the Pentagon’s acquisition process in this year’s defense authorization bill, John McCain (R-Ariz.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, next plans to overhaul the military’s organizational structure and chain of command.Over the past year, McCain has held a series of hearings revisiting the landmark 1986 Goldwater-Nichols Act, with a primary focus on reining in the giant bureaucracies at the geographical combatant commands.“While the world has changed profoundly since 1986, the basic organization of the Department of Defense, as well as the roles and missions of its major civilian and military actors, has not changed all that much since Goldwater-Nichols,” McCain said. “It must be asked, is a 30-year-old defense organization equal to our present and future national security challenges?”The Goldwater-Nichols Act, which was intended to fix problems caused by inter-service rivalries, transformed the military’s traditional chain of command by empowering combatant commanders to report directly to the defense secretary, bypassing their service chiefs.The main criticism of the combatant commands is they no longer are responsible for the task they originally were established for — fighting wars. Instead they concentrate on their peacetime roles, reported Politico.“They no longer fight wars themselves, but must create new joint task forces to accomplish that mission,” Arnold Punaro, a retired Marine Corps major general, told the Armed Services Committee. “The regional combatant commanders have evolved into political-military ambassadors who focus heavily on peacetime engagements.”Some former military leaders have proposed consolidating the six regional combatant commands. In advance of McCain’s initiative, Defense Secretary Ash Carter has launched an internal review of organizational issues related to the Goldwater-Nichols Act.McCain’s effort also is looking at the size of the civilian workforce, decision-making processes and whether the military is performing commercial functions that would be better handled by private contractors, according to Politico. McCain’s proposals would be incorporated into next year’s defense authorization bill.The series of 10 congressional hearings held so far by the Armed Services Committee has generated a variety of suggestions. Several witnesses mentioned the redundancy associated with service secretaries and the uniformed service chiefs each maintaining their own headquarters staffs. One witness recommended the civilian workforce should be cut “in half or more.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
