Pot deliveries OKd into Calif communities that ban sales

first_imgLOS ANGELES — California endorsed a rule Wednesday that will allow home marijuana deliveries statewide, even into communities that have banned commercial pot sales.The rule by the state Bureau of Cannabis Control was opposed by police chiefs and other critics who say it will create an unruly grey market of largely hidden pot transactions, while undercutting local control.The rule cleared by state lawyers Wednesday clarifies what had been apparently conflicting law and regulations about where marijuana can be delivered.Cannabis companies pushed for the change, since vast stretches of the state have banned pot activity or not set up rules to allow legal sales. They say consumers in those areas were effectively cut off from legal marijuana purchases, even though sales are legal in California.Michael R. Blood, The Associated Presslast_img read more

General Assembly hears calls to address root causes of terrorism

In the speeches delivered today by the Heads of State or Government and other high-ranking officials attending the weeklong debate, terrorism was the prevailing theme as many speakers also noted that the global community had been unified in its response to the events of 11 September.Much of the debate throughout the day also centred on the efforts needed to combat the root causes of the kind of discontent that might lead to such extreme actions, such as poverty, hunger, underdevelopment and neglect of human rights. The first speaker in the Assembly’s afternoon session, the President of Guatemala,, Alfonso Portillo Cabrera, told the General Assembly that as a small country his State mirrored the grave problems of today’s world while it struggled to cope with inequality, injustice and poverty that put “our peace and our democracy at risk.”“We still do not enjoy the benefits of the great scientific and technological achievements, but we still suffer from great social inequalities,” he said. “A country that has opened itself to the world, although the world has perhaps not opened itself to it in the same way.”As for the struggle against terrorism, President Portillo said it was a struggle against inequality in international economic relations, against ignorance and injustice and against discrimination, intolerance, exclusion and poverty that prevented the attainment of peace. “A peace associated with inequality, with poverty and injustice is a bad peace,” he said. “And let us not forget that a bad peace is worse than war.” The challenge for the world community, therefore, was to eliminate the universal threat posed by terrorism while renewing the ethical, political, legal and social bases that would ensure coexistence in a globalized world.Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, Samoa’s Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, said fighting terrorism could not be separated from preventing conflict and organized crime, the spread of small arms and other weapons, or from ensuring that the conditions of poverty and despair that breed ignorance, hatred, violence and extremism are properly and effectively addressed. Respect for the rule of law will help deny to terrorists whatever they seek to gain from violence, he said.Highlighting the difficulties facing small island States such as Samoa, the Prime Minister said his delegation welcomed the recognition in various international fora of the fragility of small island States in the globalizing economy, but said much more needed to be done in terms of concrete actions. “Overcoming the well-recognized vulnerability of small island States like my own, and the exposure of island communities to the effects of global climate change, natural disasters, environmental damage and global economic shocks will be an essential element of sustainable development in all small island regions,” the Samoan leader said.For his part, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs of Kuwait, called for an international conference on terrorism in order to agree on a definition of the scourge, one that would distinguished it from the right of peoples to struggle against occupation. He stressed that an effective fight against terrorism required maximum international cooperation and coordination and also demanded a “soul-searching” review of the world’s current political, economic and social policies and practices in dealing with current global challenges. The goal was to minimize, if not eliminate, the ills that might be exploited by evildoers to carry out their terror schemes in a bid to advance their own agendas.Turning to the situation in Afghanistan, Sheikh Al-Ahmad said it required the international community’s maximum efforts to bring about the long-awaited peace and security. National reconciliation and a national coalition government elected by the people of Afghanistan, representing all factions and ethnic groups, were perhaps the most viable means to ensure the country’s sustainability and eventually its normal status within the region and the world.Prince Albert of Monaco told the General Assembly that the Millennium Declaration, as well as the international community’s statements against light weapons and racism, deserved particular attention in today’s world. “They can contribute to improving both international security and understanding among peoples,” he said, as could economic cooperation and regional political measures. Cultural and sporting events, which tended to bring people together, should also be encouraged, Prince Albert said. Turning to the issue of information technology, he said that alongside modern communications systems there should be an emphasis on more traditional ways of interaction and that education and information played a fundamental role in spreading the idea of peace among men and women living in our “troubled time.”Kiichi Miyazawa, a Member of Parliament of Japan, said his Government was ready to cooperate with developing countries in controlling the financing of terrorism, and on a wide range of issues, including immigration control, aviation and maritime security, and biological and chemical weapons. Japan was also providing urgent economic aid to Afghan refugees and will contribute some $120 million for Afghan refugee assistance efforts by UN agencies and others, he said. Mr. Miyazawa emphasized that peace in Afghanistan was vital not only as a way of eliminating the hotbed of global terrorism but also for laying the foundation for long-term stability and development of the country and the region. He reaffirmed that Japan was prepared to hold, as soon as possible, a Conference for Peace and Reconstruction in Afghanistan it had been calling for since 1996. Jan Petersen, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Norway, said the United Nations was the foremost tool for solving global problems and “we must not let the cruelty of terrorists divert attention from the ambitious goals set during the Millennium Summit.” Ending poverty, eliminating infectious diseases and upholding respect for human rights and the rule of law and other goals must remain priorities, he said, along with the fight against terrorism. For all those objectives, the world community must show steadfast determination and provide necessary resources and financial support otherwise the alternative was to face even more painful consequences, the Foreign Minister said. Meanwhile the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Mauritania, Dah Ould Abdi, said it was now proven that phenomena such as violence and extremism were the consequence of poverty and despair. That was why the international community needed to make greater efforts in solidarity and social development across the globe. Developing countries needed more support from the wealthy countries through increased investment and the opening of international markets to their products. The Foreign Minister also noted that debt remained one of the principle obstacles that weighed on the economies of developing countries and handicapped their capacity to evolve economically.In his address, Jaime Gama, the Minister of State and Foreign Affairs of Portugal, pointed to Angola as another example of conflicts that dragged on with seemingly no definitive solution in sight. He said his country profoundly regretted the continuation of the armed conflict in Angola and its severe humanitarian consequences. Mr. Gama stressed, however, that when the international community successfully intervened in a conflict, it should not deviate from the consolidation of the solutions reached. The UN had the responsibility to maintain an appropriate level of involvement until the definitive conclusion of the peace process, otherwise it put at risk the investments and expectations created. On the other hand, Mr. Gama welcomed the gains made in East Timor, whose impending transition to independence was, in fact, a clear success case for the UN, and a special reason for pride for the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries.Heinz Moeller Freile, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ecuador said the process of globalization and threats to international security had been two major factors faced by nations in the last part of the 20th Century. Many countries had to make adjustments to meet the needs of the new world order, but could not combat alone the challenges of globalization, which include dealing with “the ups and downs of short term capital flow and the absence of a truly open international trading system,” he said. On the issue of migrants, Mr. Freile said his country had faced a severe economic crisis and had become a net producer of migrants, which prompted the government to take steps to protect that population, including the signature of an agreement with Spain covering nationals of both countries. He urged the international community to act to protect that vulnerable segment of society. Turning to regional conflicts, the Minister said Ecuador supported the efforts of the Colombian Government to pursue peace talks with armed militant groups and hoped that effort would be met by a similar response by those groups. Such efforts were important in ensuring that the conflict did not spread to other countries in the region, he said, adding that the UN could play a role in helping to solve the problem.Abdelaziz Belkhadem, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Algeria, said anti-terrorism efforts should focus on the dismantling of terrorist bases and the freezing of finances linked to such acts, as well as on international cooperation in information-sharing and the provision of assistance to countries that fall victim to terrorism. The struggle also requires an effort by the international community to tackle the causes of terrorism, which create the conditions favorable to extremism and intolerance. In that context, the Algerian Minister said Islam should not be associated with terrorism, which, he said, was completely foreign to the faith’s values of peace and tolerance. On the question of Western Sahara, the Foreign Minister said Algeria supported the holding of a UN-organized referendum that would allow the people of Western Sahara to decide their political fate. For is part, Hor Namhong, Senior Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Cambodia, said his Government fully supported international efforts to combat terrorism, but that everything possible must be done to avoid civilian casualties. He also pointed to the need to address the motivation behind terrorist acts, stressing in this context the importance of achieving a lasting peace in the Middle East, including the establishment of a Palestinian State. All nations must also join together to fight poverty and to reduce the widening gap between developed and developing countries, Mr. Namhong said. On the reform of the Security Council, he said it was unacceptable that two-thirds of the world population were not equitably represented in that body. Cambodia therefore supported an increase in permanent and non-permanent members, with Japan, Germany and India as candidates for permanent membership. Emphasizing that the UN was “the main guarantor of world peace and security,” Lila Ratsifandriamanana, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Madagascar, said that to carry out that function well, the Organization’s institutional structure must be streamlined. On the situation in Africa, she said the continent was resolved to take responsibility for its economic and political destiny, and that regional mechanisms to prevent conflicts and foster development were now in place, including the “New African Initiative.” Nevertheless, in the context of globalization, economic and trade processes did not always favor developing countries, she said, adding that her Government deplored the growing gap between the economies of the North and those of the South. On the Middle East, she urged the UN to convene a special session on the crisis, and to deploy international forces to protect innocent victims. Abou Drahamane Sangaré, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs of Cote D’Ivoire, said his government attached great importance to the global effort to eradicate poverty and that it had implemented a number of policies aimed at fighting the problem, including improving health and nutrition services around the country. A policy was in place to make sure people all over the country had access to health care and other basic services. In order to meet those objectives, a favourable macro-economic policy must be in place and Cote D’Ivoire hoped to achieve such policy through good governance, he said.Fuad Mubarak Al-Hinai, Permanent Representative of Oman, expressed solidarity with the United States in defending its territory, but said innocent civilians must be protected and humanitarian aid provided in Afghanistan. “All peaceful means to combat terrorism should also be searched for and Islam should not be targeted; neither should the fight against terrorism be an occasion to settle old accounts,” he said. On the Middle East conflict, Mr. Al-Hinai said his country supported all efforts aimed at achieving peace founded on justice, international legitimacy and the principle of land for peace. “Oman calls on the United States and the Russian Federation to revive the peace process, and calls for Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights and Shaba farms.” Regarding Iraq, he said the Security Council should focus on implementing a long-term weapons monitoring and inspection programme to be able to lift sanctions, while Iraq should fulfil its remaining obligations. read more

First Sudanese refugees from Ethiopia return home under UN programme

The convoy will travel more than 800 kilometres and is expected to arrive in the Blue Nile region of south Sudan on Sunday, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokespman Ron Redmond told a news briefing in Geneva. Three more convoys are scheduled for April.Some 79,000 south Sudanese live in five camps in western Ethiopia – Bonga, Dimma, Fugnido, Sherkole and Yarenja. Most of them arrived in Ethiopia in 1983 and in the 1990s.UNHCR, Ethiopia and Sudan signed a tripartite agreement last month paving the way for the repatriation. There are some 358,000 south Sudanese refugees in neighbouring countries, and 4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs).Earlier this month, UNHCR suspended repatriation operations in southern Sudan after a recent spate of armed attacks.On Monday UNHCR signed a similar agreement with Sudan and Uganda, covering 170,000 southern Sudanese in northern Uganda.Since a peace accord ended the war between the Government and southern rebels in January, 2005, UNHCR, along with other UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), has been working in Sudan to prepare for the returning refugees and IDPs. It has built or rebuilt schools, hospitals, vocational training centres and water points to help entire communities, not just the returnees themselves.A separate, still unresolved conflict in Sudan’s western Darfur region has sent 200,000 Sudanese fleeing into eastern Chad, and internally displaced some 2 million more. read more

The Winners And Losers Of The Womens World Cup Group Stage

But just after the half, an errant cross made its way through the entire Swiss box, and Cameroon striker Gaelle Enganamouit stood waiting. She swung with her left but missed the ball entirely — a wasted opportunity. Until … Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene collected it behind her and with one touch sent a beautiful shot to the lower-left side-netting.The score was tied 1-1, but Onguene didn’t celebrate. Instead, she looked blankly toward the sideline and her coach, her face suggesting that she might be thinking, “Do we advance with a tie? Or do we need to win?”It was a moment that typified the chaos and confusion we’ve come to expect (and love) during the group stage at a World Cup (especially with FIFA’s weird 24-team tournament structure). Cameroon went on to defeat Switzerland 2-1 and become just the second African team to reach the knockout stage at a Women’s World Cup.But the group stage is over, and the knockout rounds, which begin Saturday, are simple: Win or wait four years. So which team helped itself the most during the group games? Who has the easiest path to the World Cup final? And what did we learn about these teams, many of which were first time World Cup entrants?There weren’t any surprises atop the groups — all of the most-likely first-place finishers according to our model won their respective groups. But among the second- and third-place teams that advanced, several saw their Women’s Soccer Power Index rating increase significantly after the start of the tournament (there were others whose WSPI ratings fell). Before we look at the biggest WSPI winners and losers from the group stage, let’s see how the bracket has changed since the tournament began.The U.S. Is Sitting Pretty (Thanks, FIFA!)The U.S. might still be furious at FIFA over the turf fields, but the USWNT should thank soccer’s governing body for one of the easiest routes to the World Cup final. Instead of randomly assigning every country except for the host like it does for the group stage in the men’s World Cup, FIFA chose to strategically place teams into different groups for “sporting reasons.” The setup means we’re likely to see a Germany vs. France quarterfinal, pitting the No. 1 and No. 3 ranked FIFA teams against each other. The U.S., meanwhile, won’t have to face any of the 10 best teams (according to WSPI) that are still in the tournament until the semifinal.That fortuitous path means — despite three rather uninspiring performances in the group stage — the U.S. remains the most likely team to win the tournament; its chances are up to 33 percent (from 28 percent at the start). U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe was brilliant against Australia, scoring twice, but we didn’t see much of an attacking threat from the USWNT in the rest of its group-stage games. It churned through almost every forward on the team against Sweden but was still unable to score, and the team found the net only once against Nigeria (which played with only 10 players in the game’s final minutes).Because of these rather unconvincing wins, the U.S.’s WSPI has fallen since the beginning of the tournament. If the team advances past its Round of 16 matchup with Colombia, it will face the winner of China vs. Cameroon in the quarterfinal. The average WSPI of the USA’s bracket quadrant is only 85.6 — the lowest of any quadrant — compared with 87.9, 90.0 and 90.8 for the other three quadrants.Germany looked like the powerhouse we were expecting in their opening match, thrashing the Ivory Coast 10-0. But the Germans looked flat against Norway in their second group-stage game, which ended in a 1-1 tie. Despite an increase in WSPI since the beginning of the tournament, Germany has seen its chances of winning the World Cup decrease 2 points, to 25 percent. The Germans face Sweden (the sixth-best remaining team, according to WSPI) in the Round of 16 and would be likely to play France (the third-best remaining team) should they advance to the quarterfinals.Seven of the eight highest-rated teams going into the tournament performed a bit below expectation and saw their WSPI decrease; Germany was the only exception. Most of the other top teams haven’t seen their chances to win the tournament change significantly. Sweden is down 2 points mostly because of its difficult Round of 16 draw with Germany. Australia is up 1 point after its strong performances in the “Group of Death” and its corresponding increase in WSPI.But WSPI wasn’t impressed with Japan’s three wins (it won each game by only a single goal), and Japan’s chances of winning the tournament are down 1 point. Brazil’s chances of winning went up only marginally, despite being the one team in the tournament that has yet to concede a goal.The Group-Stage WinnersColombia, Cameroon and Costa Rica — the latter of whom was eliminated from Group E by Brazil on Wednesday — emerged from the group stage as the biggest “winners” in our ratings: Their WSPI ratings have increased about 2 points since the start of the tournament, compared with an average WSPI decrease of 0.2 points for all teams. It’s worth noting that the teams whose WSPI changed the most — for better or worse — tend to have fewer competitive matchups in our database, thus the three group-stage matches have a larger impact on their overall WSPI. (See more detail about how we calculate WSPI ratings to understand this effect.) MexicoF-0.7 ChinaA– New ZealandA+0.3 NetherlandsA– EcuadorC-5.3 NorwayB+0.3 Colombia was the biggest winner from the group stage, having pulled off the second-least-likely victory in Women’s World Cup history with their 2-0 defeat of France.1The five biggest upsets in Women’s World Cup history according to WSPI are:1995: Brazil beat Sweden 1-0 (Brazil had a 3.6 percent chance of winning)2015: Colombia beat France 2-0 (6.0 percent)1999: North Korea beat Denmark 3-1 (9.2 percent)2011: Japan beat Germany 1-0 (9.5 percent)2003: Brazil beat Norway 4-1 (12.2 percent) Going into that game, our forecast gave Colombia only a 6 percent chance of winning. But the team packed in on defense, and Lady Andrade capitalized early on a beautiful through-ball from Yoreli Rincon to stun the French. Although Colombia was the biggest group-stage winner in the eyes of WSPI — the team’s overall rating increased 2.3 points — it ended up finishing third in Group F, perhaps a bit ironically, and now must face the U.S. on Monday (Colombia has just a 5 percent chance of beating the Americans, according to our forecast).Going into the tournament, we didn’t know much about the current Cameroon squad beyond its second-place finish to Nigeria in the African Women’s Championship last year. But it came out and demolished Ecuador 6-0 in its opening game, displaying extreme pace on the wings and calm, collected finishing in the box. Cameroon finished second in Group C and will face China in the Round of 16, where it has a 38 percent chance of reaching the quarterfinals.And although it didn’t advance from Group E, Costa Rica outperformed expectations at its first World Cup, drawing against South Korea and Spain but losing to Brazil.The Group-Stage LosersUnfortunately, the other three teams making their World Cup debut didn’t fare quite as well. Ecuador, Ivory Coast and Spain were the biggest group-stage “losers,” according to WSPI. Not only were all three teams eliminated from the tournament, but their WSPI ratings all dropped. Ecuador was the lowest-rated team going in, having just barely qualified, and it finished with three losses and a -16 goal differential thanks mostly to Switzerland’s 10-goal run against them. Ivory Coast suffered a similar fate against Germany, losing 10-0, but rallied in its next two games and even scored one of the tournament’s most beautiful goals.There were high hopes for Spain at its long-awaited first World Cup, but the team was unable to win a single game. Unlike Ecuador and Ivory Coast, Spain wasn’t crushed in any game. But it was unable to finish several easy chances in its opening game against Costa Rica, and poor positioning from its goalkeeper led to a World Cup-ending goal in its last game, against South Korea. read more

Terex to sell MHPS to Konecranes but continues talks with Zoomlion about

first_imgTerex Corporation has agreed with Konecranes to mutually terminate a Business Combination Agreement (BCA) the companies entered into on August 10, 2015, without payment of a fee by either party. In connection with the termination of the BCA, Terex has signed a definitive agreement to sell its Material Handling and Port Solutions business (MHPS) to Konecranes for approximately $1.3 billion. The consideration being paid is comprised of $820 million in cash and 19.6 million newly issued shares of Konecranes. MHPS includes Demag Universal Cranes, a range of high-quality cranes and components such as rope and chain hoists, controls and drive solutions for industrial infrastructure applications, used widely mining equpiment manufacturing operations.Upon completion of the transaction, Terex will own approximately 25% of the outstanding shares of Konecranes and have the right to nominate two directors. The transaction, which is subject to customary regulatory approvals and the approval of the shareholders of Konecranes, is expected to close in January 2017. The agreement also provides Terex with the ability to continue to pursue discussions with Zoomlion Heavy Industries about a sale of Terex to the Chinese group. Terex has the right to terminate the Konecranes agreement on MHPS on or before May 31, 2016 for a fee of $37 million if Terex and Zoomlion agree on a sale of Terex as a whole.“The sale of the MHPS business to Konecranes is good for our customers, team members and shareholders,” said John Garrison, Terex President and Chief Executive Officer. “This transaction is expected to be accretive to Terex earnings per share and preserves the strategic logic for the original merger of equals. In addition, it will significantly reduce Terex’s debt levels, improves our balance sheet and gives us longer term financial flexibility to invest in our business and buy back shares. As a 25% shareholder of Konecranes, Terex will also be able to share in the dividends, synergies and economic upside of the combined business.”Garrison emphasised, “This new transaction structure offers other substantial benefits to Terex shareholders as well. Importantly, the transaction locks in the benefits of the MHPS sale while preserving the ability for Terex to continue discussions with Zoomlion on a potential sale of the company at $31 per share with the MHPS business or, alternatively, for the sale of Terex without the MHPS business.”last_img read more

Bertie was back in Leinster House today and he managed to take

first_imgBertie was back in Leinster House today and he managed to take a dig at Sinn Féin Look who’s back on Kildare Street. 103 Comments As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: By Christina Finn Thursday 6 Apr 2017, 3:49 PM Apr 6th 2017, 3:49 PM 28,457 Views https://jrnl.ie/3327058 center_img FORMER TAOISEACH BERTIE Ahern was back in his old haunt of Leinster House today.He wasn’t there to sort out the water charges debacle or to try out Enda Kenny’s seat while he is away in Germany – he was actually in the Upper House, the Seanad, to talk about Brexit.While giving his two cents on the impact Britain’s exit from the EU will have on Ireland, he also managed to get into a bit of a disagreement with Sinn Féin.The party has been campaigning for a united Ireland and a border poll on the basis that the majority of people living in Northern Ireland voted against Britain leaving the EU.The possibility of a border poll is contained in a clause in the Good Friday Agreement which allows for a referendum on whether Northern Ireland should remain part of the United Kingdom or join with the Republic of Ireland to form a united Ireland.Addressing senators, Ahern said a debate on a border poll in Northern Ireland had no place in the discussions on Brexit.Border poll“The last thing I want out of Brexit, the last thing, the very last thing, is anyone on about border polls. The only time we should have a border poll, in my view, and I’ll argue this for the rest of my life, is when the nationalists and republicans and a respectable, sizeable amount of unionists and loyalists are in favour, and on the basis of consent,” said the former Taoiseach.“Having a sectarian headcount or political headcount is the last thing we should do,” he added.Since Britain voted to leave the EU, he said people had been using the issue to say that now is the time for a border poll. While he said there are provisions in the Good Friday Agreement for such a poll, he said the timing must be right.“This is not the time for that. There is a time for it, there will be a time for it. I think we should all do our best to get to that time by convincing people and winning people over – but don’t put it into this debate,” he told the Seanad this morning.Offence Sinn Féin’s Niall Ó Donnghaile said he took offence to Ahern’s use of the word “sectarian head count”.“I don’t think that would be a sectarian head count, it would be a referendum like any other,” said  Ó Donnghaile.He agreed that talks on Brexit should not be hijacked by discussions of a border poll, but said there has been a “societal shift” in Northern Ireland.“I’m not saying utilise it in cynical way, but I don’t think we should long or wish for unity – we should work for it,” he concluded.Read: ‘We’re not going to have a general election over water’ – Could this be the row to take down the government?>Read: Fine Gael says water committee report is illegal and it won’t support it> Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern.

Mice and possibly humans make their own morphine

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — New research has confirmed that mice have the biochemical pathways required to manufacture morphine from intermediates. Morphine is a powerful drug usually derived from the opium poppy, but scientists have long speculated animals may be able to synthesize it, especially as they have brain receptors responding specifically to morphine. Tetrahydropapaveroline (THP) and other alkaloid precursors of morphine have been discovered in brain tissue and urine, but until now animal studies were largely inconclusive because of the difficulty of excluding environmental contaminants. The new research gives more conclusive evidence that excludes the possibility of contamination. Researcher Dr Meinhart Zenk, from the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St Louis, Missouri, injected mice each day with THP and other morphine precursors and then analyzed the mouse urine samples. The potential precursors injected into the mice were labeled with deuterium and could therefore be distinguished from any morphine contaminants found in the environment or in the food. The alkaloids were isolated from the urine and then examined using mass spectrometry.The analyses identified a number of intermediate steps in the biochemical pathway between THP and morphine. One of these was a four-ringed molecule called salutaridine, a metabolite of THP found in the biochemical pathway that synthesizes morphine in the opium poppy. When they injected salutaridine into the mice they found thebaine, a five-ringed opiate in the urine. Injecting thebaine resulted in codeine, morphine, and a third opiate, oripavine, being identified in the urine.Dr Zenk said the later stages of morphine production are the same in the opium poppy and mammals, but the stages preceding salutaridine differ in that the precursor has an extra hydroxyl (OH) group in animals. The difference is enough to suggest the morphine pathway in mammals and plants evolved independently.Zenk and his colleagues did not find morphine in the mouse blood or tissues, and so the research does not prove the morphine produced was used for any purpose such as pain relief, or that it was involved in an addiction. It does not prove that humans and other mammals also possess the same biochemical pathways, but it seems likely since traces of morphine have been found previously in human urine as well as mouse urine.The team plans to use more sensitive techniques to identify traces of morphine in tissues, and further research is needed to identify enzymes involved in the biochemical pathways. More work also needs to be done to show whether or not the endogenous morphine exists naturally and has a significant function, although Zenk said because morphine is found “we have to consider that there must be a function for it.” One of the future research projects Zenk hopes to do is to find out if people suffering from pain have raised levels of endogenous morphine.The paper is published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Samsung Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy Note 10 Whats The Difference

For starters, the Galaxy S10 sports a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with a 3,040 x 1,440 resolution (550 ppi), and it’s available with 128 GB and 512 GB storage configurations that’s expandable by up to 1 TB with a microSD card. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 10 has a 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 2,280 x 1,080 resolution (401 ppi), and it’s available only with 256 GB of built-in storage.In the camera department, they both boast a triple-camera setup, and they slightly differ in the f-numbers. The Galaxy S10 has a 12-megapixel f/1.5-2.4 (wide), 12-megapixel f/2.4 (telephoto), and 16-megapixel f/2.2 (ultrawide) lenses, while the Galaxy Note 10 has a 12-megapixel f/1.5-2.4 (wide), 12-megapixel f/2.1 (telephoto), and 16-megapixel f/2.2 (ultrawide) lenses. The same goes for the front snapper, where the former has a 10-megapixel f/1.9 camera and the latter has a 10-megapixel f/2.2 sensor.As for the batteries, the Galaxy S10 has a 3,400 mAh battery and the Galaxy Note 10 has a 3,500 mAh battery. The difference is just 100 mAh, but the Galaxy Note 10 has the upper hand with its charging rate of 25W as opposed to the Galaxy S10’s 15W.While they both have stereo speakers, only the Galaxy S10 has a headphone jack, which is a deciding factor for most smartphone buyers.The Bottom LineThe Galaxy S10 edges out the Galaxy Note 10 because of its sharper display, headphone jack, and expandable storage, not to mention that it’s cheaper at $899.99. However, the Galaxy Note 10 does have the new S Pen with Bluetooth connectivity and Air Actions gesture controls, 25W fast charging, and modern design, even though it starts at a slightly more expensive price of $949.99. Still, choosing between the two can be boiled down to which of these features really matter to the user. TAG Samsung, Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, Android ⓒ 2018 TECHTIMES.com All rights reserved.

IATA opposes new passenger tax hike

first_imgThe international Air Transport Association (IATA) has conveyed its disagreement with the US Governments proposal to double the 9.11 passenger security fee. As part of its deficit reduction plan the US President, Barack Obama administration office plans to double the security fee and continue to raise it in successive years through to 2017. IATA Director General and CEO Tony Tyler said national security is the responsibility of the Government, Airlines and passengers should not be made to pay. “To add insult to injury, more than half of the increased revenue from the higher fee will be diverted into the general fund and will not be used to make air travel more secure,” Mr Tyler added. Currently the security fee for passengers travelling from the US airports is US$2.50 per flight sector with a cap of US$5.00 one-way and US$10.00 per round trip.  Under the new proposal the fee will be US$5.00 for all one way trips and US$10.00 per round trip. Mr Tyler stated that this new security fee will progressively rise by US$1.00 per year between 2013 until 2017. “This is absolutely the wrong approach, the economic outlook is uncertain and confidence among both businesses and consumers is low.” Mr Tyler said raising the cost of air travel is not a good economic move and drew a comparison with a similar passenger tax in the Netherlands which cost the economy more than it collected.“Globally aviation supports US$3.5 trillion in economic activity and 33 million jobs,” Mr Tyler added.
