Saints not distracted by Hoops dream insists boss Liam Buckley

first_imgTHE OPPORTUNITY to take on Celtic at the Aviva Stadium in the next round of the Champions League Qualifiers won’t stop St Patrick’s Athletic from focusing on the job at hand tonight when they face Legia Warsaw.That’s according to Pat’s boss Liam Buckley, who said, although it would be fantastic to play the Scottish Champions at the home of Irish football, they could be out of the competition by 10pm this evening.He said: “We’ve spoken about the possibility of playing them, and we know it’s there. We’re all aware that Glasgow Celtic in Dublin, potentially in the Aviva, would be fantastic for St Patrick’s Athletic in a competitive Champions League game, it doesn’t get any better than that”.“That said, we could be out of the tournament by 10pm, so we’ve got to make sure that our focus and our full concentration is about applying ourselves, having a game plan, sticking to it, and giving ourselves a chance of getting through the tie.”Having taken the lead last week in Poland through Christy Fagan, the Saints were pegged back in injury-time when Miroslav Radović hit the back of the net for the Polish champions. Killian Brennan should be fit for tonight’s tie having trained yesterday, and the Saints’ boss is hoping his team can replicate their title-winning form of last season, with the need to keep their defence tight, the first priority.“We don’t have to go chasing them tomorrow night” he explained. “At the minute they have to score obviously to go through here so I think the onus will be on them.“They will have a game plan to break us down, and from our end, we want to be compact with a little bit of a balance of both.“Our league form last year winning the league, we had the most goals scored the day we won the league, and least amount of goals scored against us, so it’s that sort of mentality we need tomorrow night.”Celtic cruise to win in Champions League to set up potential St Pat’s clashJames Rodriguez rescues pitch invader at his Real unveilinglast_img read more

Middlesex Sheriffs Office Marks First Anniversary Of Groundbreaking Young Adult Unit With

The MSO was the first sheriff’s office in the nation to launch this type of initiative with Vera’s support and the second correctional facility overall.“To launch this unit, we had to reimagine what corrections looked like,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian. “We had weeks of new and intensive training for staff who applied to work in the unit, began allowing contact visits, implemented new programming and allowed young adults to help design community spaces within the unit. The result has been a safer environment for both our staff and our inmates, one that is based on a pact to respect and help one another.”As part of the anniversary, the MSO and the Vera Institute released a paper documenting their experiences during the first year of operation. The paper highlights some initial findings including data showing P.A.C.T. participants were far less likely to be issued a disciplinary report (13 percent) than their counterparts (33 percent) living outside the unit – an outcome attributed by inmates to the unit’s environment and high level of staff engagement.“We’re grateful for the leadership of Sheriff Koutoujian, Scot Chaput, Cristal Swiminer, staff and incarcerated young men at the Middlesex County Jail for their courage and vision in the creation of the P.A.C.T Unit,” said Alex Frank, Project Director for the Restoring Promise Initiative at the Vera Institute of Justice. “What’s happening here in Middlesex is truly exceptional, but it shouldn’t be the exception. Today, there are more black men in American prisons and jails than were enslaved in 1850, and young adults bear the brunt of the racial disparities that plague the system. There’s more work to be done to truly upend the historical and generational cycles of incarceration we face today, but programs like P.A.C.T provide a vision of what’s possible when we aim to radically transform our system.”Those in attendance at Thursday’s event included individuals living and working in P.A.C.T., officials from the Vera Institute, Cambridge Police Commissioner Branville Bard, State Representative Paul Tucker, as well as representatives from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Roca and UTEC. UTEC and Roca both offer programming and support inside the unit and in the community.Sheriff Koutoujian – Middlesex Sheriff Peter J.

NASA eyes colossal cracks in ice shelf near Antarctic station

NASA is keeping an eye on some growing cracks threatening to unload an iceberg soon. NASA/USGS Landsat satellites are monitoring the action as the cracks grow. When the iceberg calves, it could be twice the size of New York City. That would make it the largest berg to break off the Brunt ice shelf since observations of the area began in 1915.brunt-oli-2019023-detailEnlarge ImageThis annotated image shows the cracks and the location of the Halley VI station, along with the location of the closed Halley IV station. NASA Earth Observatory image by Joshua Stevens, using Landsat data from the US Geological Survey An annotated view of the ice shelf shows the cracks as they relate to the Halley VI station. The crack leading up the middle is especially concerning. It’s been stable for 35 years, but NASA says it’s now extending northward as fast as 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) per year.As of December, Halley station was home to around 30 science and technical staff on missions to study the ice shelf and climate change in the polar region. The BAS completed a relocation of the futuristic-looking Halley station in 2017, placing it farther away from the unpredictable cracking. Sci-Techcenter_img 0 “It is not yet clear how the remaining ice shelf will respond following the break, posing an uncertain future for scientific infrastructure and a human presence on the shelf that was first established in 1955,” NASA says. Researchers are concerned the ice shelf could become unstable or break up. NASA says iceberg calving is “a normal part of the life cycle of ice shelves, but the recent changes are unfamiliar in this area.” The ice shelf had been fairly stable since British explorer Ernest Shackleton surveyed its coast in 1915. Now its future is uncertain. Post a comment Share your voice NASA Spacelast_img read more

Xbox 720 facing delay expected to use AMD HD7000 GPU

first_imgNintendo is set to launch the Wii U console before 2012 is over, with November 18 being the date everyone expects to be launch day. As for the competition, at least one next-gen console is thought to be launching in 2013. With Sony working on a 10-year console lifecycle, it looks more likely to be Microsoft who jumps first and brings the Xbox 720 to market.However, rumors are abound that Microsoft has September 2013 penciled in as the launch window for the hardware, but it may not be able to hit that anymore. The reason being the processor that will sit at the heart of the next Xbox isn’t being manufactured quickly enough. The yields are so low they apparently make the problems Nvidia had with Fermi GPU production look simple.No processors this year means very limited supplies of development kits, which of course has the knock-on effect of games not being ready in time for launch. And if Microsoft can’t get chip yields to production level soon, then there’s no way it will be producing the thousands of consoles required for a worldwide launch next September.As to what hardware Microsoft has chosen to place inside its next console, all we have to go on are educated guesses and rumors. However, it looks as though AMD is the big winner as Microsoft is thought to have used a multi-core AMD x86 processor and coupled it with a Radeon HD7000-grade GPU. That’s going to be a massive increase in performance over the tri-core PowerPC chip and 500MHz ATI Xenos GPU found in the Xbox 360 Best Price at Amazon . But then that’s not hard when your current hardware is 7 years old.If Microsoft really is facing a serious delay due to chip manufacturing problems, the only good news for them is they haven’t actually announced the next machine yet publicly. Depending on how long the delay turns out to be, it could mean Microsoft is forced to ship early in 2014, but still likely well ahead of the PS4.Read more at SemiAccuratelast_img read more

Police truck and motorcycle collide at intersection

Gitlin, DPH, FSIIMThe group known today as the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) had its origins in 1980, when a small group of individuals who saw that medical imaging was on the verge of undergoing a revolutionary change met and formed the Radiology Information System Consortium (RISC). It was comprised of academic and private hospitals for the purpose of developing a radiology information system (RIS) with a commercial partner and making it available to member institutions and others.In 1989, the Society for Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR) was founded as an organization under the RISC banner. SCAR provided a structure to include individual members, and RISC’s biannual meeting on computer applications was transferred to SCAR in 1990. In 1996, RISC and SCAR merged under the SCAR name to include individual, corporate and institutional members.In 2006, the Society changed its name to the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine to better describe the diversity of its constituency, to expand research and activities into the entire field of imaging informatics, to include all of the imaging sciences and to embrace the dynamic changes in the healthcare environment.A Rich Historical ArchiveSIIM documented and archived a large amount of historical information about its organization and segments of the medical imaging industry, which can be found on its website, www.siim.org. These include videotaped and transcribed reminiscences from a founding member, Joseph N. Gitlin, DPH, FSIIM, associate professor of radiology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, which provide an inside look at important milestones, as Gitlin’s career often was interwoven with developments in the industry.Gitlin graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and early in his career worked for the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS). While there, he earned a master’s of public health degree at Johns Hopkins. A few excerpts of his transcript are presented below, based on the interview conducted by Steven Horii, M.D., FSIIM, University of Pennsylvania Health System and chairman of SIIM’s History Committee at the time of the taping.Fighting Tuberculosis With X-Rays“When I was accepted in the Public Health Service in 1950, my first assignment was with the Division of Tuberculosis, when a national screening program was underway to make an attempt to eliminate tuberculosis in the United States. The technique that was developed included a photofluorographic unit that recorded chest X-ray examination images on 70 mm square film…The PHS had a laboratory…known as ‘Murphy’s Lab.’ That’s where the new photofluorographic X-ray unit was tested under the direction of Dr. Russell Morgan, who was active in the development of the test procedures. At the time, Dr. Morgan was the chairman of the Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins and a consultant to the PHS.“The work resulted in 60 mobile units being built, each of which was equipped with the photofluorographic X-ray equipment. Over the next three years of operation, there were 2 million chest X-ray examinations done throughout the country. It was a free program, highly publicized and very well attended. A large number of cases of previously unknown tuberculosis were found that were treatable because isoniazid was available.  Instead of sending patients with active disease off to sanitaria, the treatment was usually performed at home.  “During this assignment, I participated in designing a punch-card system that recorded the fact that an individual had participated in the screening program and provided names and addresses, so that if a 70 mm reading was positive, followup could be performed.  The punch cards also were used to produce program statistics. A professor of statistics at the University of California analyzed the data, and we noticed that there were relatively high positive rates of readings by the young radiologists who were interpreting the 70 mm films.“As a result, we got permission and funding to change the single reading of the 70 mm films to independent double reading. That pretty much solved the problem of ‘over-reading,’ and it greatly reduced the follow-up costs, because every positive reading on the small films resulted in the individual going to a hospital or clinic and having a 14-by-17 film exam done to confirm the positive screening result.“The only thing digital we knew about in those days was that you used your hands and your fingers to punch the holes in the cards…A special reader was developed to hold the 70 mm films that were on a roll of 500 and magnify them to get a better view without changing the image proportions. But there was a tendency, because of the screening program and single reading, that if the reader saw anything that was abnormal it was recorded as positive and that resulted in calling the patient back for the 14-by-17.”Early Radiation Safety ConcernsAnother change that affected the industry as well as Gitlin’s career came about in 1957, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued an executive order that removed the Health and Safety regulatory authority from the Atomic Energy Commission. The commission was responsible for promoting the use of radionuclides and radiation activities, including energy production. As Gitlin noted, “It spent 90 percent of its time promoting it rather than giving priority to health and safety.“At that time, we were testing weapons in the atmosphere and there was a great deal of concern about fallout and dietary ingestion that contained a variety of radionuclides.  When President Eisenhower transferred that responsibility to the PHS, that, in effect, became the beginning of the organization of the Center for Radiological Health. I was assigned to the new Radiological Health Laboratory in Rockville, Md….We set up a regular monitoring program with a PHS ‘Air Force’ made up of four planes based in Las Vegas and many monitoring devices that collected an enormous amount of data.  “Initially, we used punch cards to record the data, but it was clear that better data processing methods were needed. I was successful in arranging with IBM to install its model 1620 computer, which in effect was the first solid-state, mid-sized unit available. It was a scientific high-speed unit that we installed in the Rockville laboratory to process all the data that we collected from 1960 to 1963, the period when atmospheric testing of weapons was still conducted.“The data collection and processing effort placed special emphasis on strontium 90, which was of great public health concern because of infants and children drinking milk and possibly ingesting strontium 90. The program had a lot of important publicity attached to it and people followed the weekly reports very, very carefully. The atmospheric weapons testing ban was signed by President Kennedy in 1963, several months before he was assassinated. The ban halted the testing by the U.S. and other countries that had signed the treaty. The monitoring program continued for almost two years afterward just to be sure nothing else was happening.“The design included household interview surveys from a representative sample of the population, in which the woman of the house usually provided information about the food consumed during the previous week…The program worked quite well and we saw a downward change in the radioactive measurements over the four-year period of the food collection program. This clearly showed that the atmospheric weapons testing ban had, in fact, achieved its goal.An Early Start to Measuring Exposure“The work that we did in household interview surveying gave rise to the idea that we could produce estimates of population exposure to X-ray examinations by asking people in households if they had any X-ray exams, including dental, during a specified period of time. A serious statistical problem was associated with picking the time period. If people were asked about X-ray examinations in the past year, the responses provided relatively large numbers of procedures, but because of the memory factor, there were many false positives and negatives. If the time period was the past month, the result was relatively few exams with few false positives and negatives.  “We compromised by choosing a three-month time period that was tested in a pilot study of the protocol in Berks County and Reading, Penn…The county health officer there was an old friend of mine, and he encouraged residents to participate in the household interview and the follow-up phases of the study.“In addition to showing that residents were able to report that they had medical and dental X-ray examinations, we developed an X-ray film pack to obtain radiation exposure data on each exam reported in the household interview phase.  Patients provided permission for a follow-up visit by a PHS officer to the clinic, hospital or physician who did the exam to verify the report and perform an exact replica of the procedure using the film pack as the object. After the film pack was exposed, it was sent back to Rockville, where it was processed, and estimated exposure to various organs were recorded.  “These data were translated later into dose estimates using a computer program at Johns Hopkins, where I worked with Dr. Russell Morgan and a staff of experts. The results of the X-ray exposure study were very well received by physicians, scientists and public health officers. The findings facilitated improvements in the training of technicians and the education of interpreting physicians.  “We found that one of the most important problems with X-ray examinations in those days was that the size of the X-ray beam used was often far larger than the organs of interest and was exposing much more of the patient’s anatomy than was necessary. This led to the development of beam limiting devices by the manufacturers, which was installed on all types of X-ray machines.“As I mentioned earlier, Dr. Morgan and the computer staff at Hopkins were very cooperative in writing the programs and developing the conversion tables. When that was finished, we tested the validity of the organ dose tables in cooperation with Dr. Richard Chamberlain at the University of Pennsylvania to estimate dose from selected X-ray exams in certain organs. When it was feasible to measure dose during examinations with the patient’s permission, we compared the measurements with the estimates produced by conversion tables developed at Hopkins.“When we were satisfied that the computer programs worked well, I began to think about what should be done next. The staff in Rockville wanted to write two papers related to the 1964 national study and I agreed. We produced a report on X-ray examinations during pregnancy as a subset of what we learned about the general population in ’64, and a report on the dose estimates based upon the ’64 exposure data and the conversion tables.”The Era of Data Processing“At Hopkins, we began to recognize the potential for using data processing systems in radiology in the day-to-day operations. Dr. John Dorst, director of pediatric radiology, had set up a punch-card system to record each examination that was done in his section to expedite the searching of the film library for specific exams…When I learned about the use of the punch-card system, with Dr. Morgan’s approval, we began to record data on a punch card for every X-ray exam that was done in the department during 1966.  “An analysis of the exam data on the punch cards helped settle an argument between the comptroller’s office of the hospital and the radiology department regarding the number of exams performed. The comptroller’s office always seemed to underestimate the income derived from radiology, which was a factor in determining what the budget for next year would be.  And so, in his usual fashion, Dr. Morgan said, ‘We ought to have a verification process.’  “He asked me to participate in expanding the initial punch-card system to cover the entire department, and as it turned out, we had 6 percent more examinations based on the punch-card system than the comptroller had from the paper process of several layers to produce financial reports. Dr. Morgan was very pleased with the additional dollars in next year’s budget, and we began looking at other areas of radiology that might benefit from computer applications.“A preliminary study of departmental activities was conducted at Hopkins. It included radiologists at Hopkins and several members of the PHS radiological health program in Rockville. Data were collected on each of the recurring activities at Hopkins, and similar baseline studies were conducted at other institutions to determine where computers could help radiology departments become more efficient. The activities included scheduling patients and exam rooms, film library management, the reporting of interpretations of films that often took three to four days when they were dictated and transcribed, and support for teaching and research activities from records on interesting cases.“In almost every instance, the baseline studies at Hopkins and other institutions that used similar protocols identified the same kinds of problems and suggestions that computers could help in these areas, and this was before we could actually do it, but the concepts were defined.”To read more of the transcript or view the video interview of Joseph Gitlin and Steven Horii, coordinated by the SIIM History Committee in August 2008, visit www.siim.org.SIDEBAR:X-Rays and ShoesThe SIIM History Committee’s video interview with Joseph Gitlin included a sidebar on one of the more prevalent uses for X-rays about 50 years ago — to determine shoe sizes. Following are Gatlin’s memories about it.“A sidebar to the X-ray exposure study concerns fluoroscopic shoe fitting machines. Some of you may not remember when your mother took you to the shoe store in the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s; kids enjoyed trying on their new shoes, walking over to the shoe fluoroscopy unit, putting their feet in and watching their toes wiggle. Mothers were interested in getting the right size shoes for the kids with space so they could last another six months.“The position of the fluoro unit could produce gonadal exposure as well as foot images.  In 1958, we banned shoe fluoroscopy in the United States. But in 1964, when we conducted the national study, we soon had people in the household survey report X-ray exams as being done at a shoe store that was not aware of the ban.  “The Surgeon General wrote a letter to the state health officers indicating that any shoe store that had a fluoro unit but collaborated by providing data in the study would not be prosecuted if it stopped using the unit. One day in 1964, I received a call from the regional representative in North Dakota, saying, ‘We have a shoe store operating a shoe fluoroscopy unit, what should we do?’“And I said, ‘Well, read the letter from the Surgeon General and tell the owner that he is exempt from prosecution if he stops using it. And if the owner of the store offered to donate the unit to the Rad Health Museum in Rockville, we would pay the freight.’ He made the offer, and the last known shoe fluoroscopy unit in the country is on display.”Read the related article “The Eclectic History of Medical Imaging.” A 3-D printed model (left) and a model constructed in augmented reality (right), both of a kidney with a tumor.

Tentative deal in education standoff Update 2

first_imgBy George PsyllidesTHE standoff between state teachers and the government appeared to be heading for resolution on Thursday, as the two sides were able to hammer out a framework deal.The Cyprus News Agency (CNA) said the three main teachers’ unions had in their hands a document, drafted jointly by a ministerial committee and union leaders.However the document – understood to be an interim deal – would need to be endorsed by the syndicates, scheduled to meet again on Friday.Should the unions give an official ‘yes’, all that remained would be for president Nicos Anastasiades to be briefed and sign off on the agreement.CNA said the document was the outcome of intensive deliberations taking place late on Wednesday evening that had dragged on until 3am Thursday.Meetings with the government went on throughout the day in a bid to break the deadlock.The heads of the Poed and Oltek unions went up to the presidential palace for more talks with a ministerial committee tasked with resolving the crisis.Teachers unions had been meant to hold a meeting at lunchtime Thursday to discuss how to proceed but it was delayed, as the two sides engaged in consultations to resolve the matter.Unions Oelmek, Oltek, and Poed were meant to meet at lunchtime Thursday in the wake of their members granting them authorization to take any measures they saw fit, including staging a strike.The government meanwhile announced that secondary education schools would be opening on Monday and not Friday, as was the schedule.The postponement had been requested by parents’ associations amid the ongoing dispute between the government and educators.On Wednesday, the overwhelming majority of teachers – over 94 per cent — voted to grant their unions the authority to step up their reaction to government decisions they disapproved.Daily Politis reported on Thursday that a secret meeting was held on neutral ground – the foreign ministry – between the heads of the unions and a ministerial committee made up by the ministers of education, labour, and agriculture, to discuss the latest compromise proposal submitted by the government.Politis, quoting an unnamed government source, reported that the meeting was good and hopes to overcome the deadlock were revived.The ministers asked the unions to give their view on the proposal and apparently there is common ground in several points.During the meeting, the two sides also discussed an early retirement plan for teachers with the government pledging to fill the vacancies with new hires.  You May LikeFitDib20 Best Short Hairdos For Women Over 60 To Look YoungerFitDibUndoMoguldomThe U.S. Drone Iran Shot Down … Was It Spying Or Doing Surveillance?MoguldomUndoLovelydayoff.com6 Superb Drinks for Beautiful and Glowing SkinLovelydayoff.comUndo Cypriot ambassadors gather in Nicosia for annual briefingUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

EU unveils tougher bank test in bid to draw line under crisis

first_imgBy Huw JonesEuropean banks must show they can survive simultaneous routs in bonds, property and stocks in the toughest test to date by regulators aiming to restore confidence in an industry that had to be rescued by taxpayers in the financial crisis.The European Banking Authority (EBA) said on Tuesday it would gauge the resilience of 124 banks from the 28-country European Union to see if they would still have enough capital after facing a toxic cocktail of theoretical shocks.The EU watchdog set out “scenarios” banks such as Deutsche Bank, BNP Paribas and Barclays face in a test whose results will be published in October, raising hopes among policymakers that banks can finally turn a corner and lend more to the economy.Over a three-year “stress test” period – a year longer than in the previous exercise – banks must show they can cope with a cumulative loss of 2.1 percent in economic output, much worse than the 0.4 percent decline in the last test.Such a poor economic performance would push up unemployment to 13 percent and send house prices down 20 percent on average, triggering defaults on loans held by banks on trading books, the EBA said.Separately, European insurers are also being tested by their regulator, as policymakers seek to address market criticism that the EU has not been as robust in its response to the financial crisis as the United States.European banks such as UniCredit are already bolstering their capital to avoid the humiliation of failing the test, and before the European Central Bank (ECB) becomes their supervisor from November as part of a new euro zone banking union to intensify scrutiny of lenders.Previous tests failed to convince markets and this time round the ECB is reviewing the balance sheets of the top euro zone banks to ensure the stress test is based on reliable numbers in the first place.“The exercise’s full transparency will be key to its credibility,” EBA Chairman Andrea Enria said in a statement outlining the mix of shocks banks would face in the stress test.“It will show how efforts recently undertaken by EU banks are already bearing fruit and it will provide a common framework for the next steps to be taken by supervisors and banks.”Banks that fail the test will be given time to plug capital holes by raising money from investors, scrapping dividends or selling assets.HIGHER THRESHOLDAlthough the European economy is improving after several years of fallout from a banking and euro zone debt crisis since 2007, regulators opted for their toughest test yet after the failure of each of the previous three exercises to convince markets that banks have enough capital.The EBA had already said the test would cover three years from January 2014, during which banks would have to maintain core capital equivalent to at least 5.5 percent of their risk-weighted assets to pass, a higher threshold than in the previous test.The impact of the theoretical economic slowdown will be felt in six shocks hitting all assets held on banks’ trading books, compared with two shocks in the prior test.This time round banks cannot include planned measures to boost capital after the December 2013 cut off date for the test.Banks will also have to show that while their assets are being pummelled, they can manage liabilities, meaning they can foot the higher funding costs such distressed markets would bring despite the test’s cap on income from interest and trading.Experiences from the recent past are also being included in the test, such as spikes in market interest rates, and turmoil in central and eastern European currencies in the wake of recent foreign exchange crises, such as in Hungary.The stress test includes national variations in how the different assets react to the economic downturns.For example, the gap between expected house prices and the “adverse” scenarios banks are tested against varies massively, with banks in Britain, Sweden and Finland tested against the biggest departures from expectations and banks in Spain and Portugal, which have already suffered massively property slumps, tested against the smallest slumps.Tests against a commercial property collapse are most severe in the Britain, Sweden and Denmark and least severe in Austria, Portugal and Spain.The test will also set tougher criteria on government debt holdings. The bulk of sovereign debt held by lenders is in the so-called available for sale (AFS) category in trading books, and some national regulators allow banks to ignore the impact of market slides on this category in real life.Despite opposition from some regulators, the EBA test will impose a common phase-out of this protection where it exists, so that by the third year, at least 60 percent of AFS would be unshielded.The watchdog hopes the test results and data will be detailed enough so that analysts can replicate it with their own computer models as a cross check.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.

Guardiola said.S. she gathers the community of the faithful, Next the team added 14 different zinc finger proteins to the mouse cells one by one to see which ones could stop the jumping genes from jumping Two KRAB zinc fingers (KZNF91 and KZNF93) worked against two kinds of human transposons Jumping genes stopped jumping the team reported online on 28 September in Nature Once the zinc fingers were paired with their target jumping genes the team confirmed that indeed the zinc fingers had evolved shortly after the transposon emerged When the experiment was repeated using a zinc finger from orangutans or macaques the human transposons were able to escape The result suggests that somewhere in our ancestry the jumping genes mutated to dodge the zinc fingers but the zinc fingers also evolved to silence them once again “We could actually look at when these zinc fingers arose in relation to when these transposons were active and could see this really interesting evolutionary story” says Sofie Salama a UC Santa Cruz biologist involved in the study “It shows this sort of evolution in action” These zinc finger proteins turn off more than just the jumping genes They also control other genes nearby and over evolutionary time can be incorporated into the cell’s program for regulating those genes’ activities Jacobs says This unintentional benefit may explain why many zinc finger genes persist in our DNA even after their target jumping genes lose the ability to copy themselves Primates in particular have shown explosive expansion in the KRAB zinc finger gene family; considerable differences exist in this family even between humans and chimpanzees Our DNA is 98% identical to chimpanzees but the big differences come from how and when that DNA is used Jacobs suggests that many of our species’ distinctive features may have arisen because of changes in gene expression caused by zinc finger regulation “[Zinc fingers] provide this potential regulatory landscape that can be used by the host to do something interesting and change in interesting ways” Salama adds By understanding that regulatory landscape researchers may be better able to understand how in various diseases the way genes get used goes awry and find new ways to correct problems” The work could have applications ranging from stem cell development to cancer prevention and may even lead to a deeper understanding of how the cell makes use of its genetic material.
