Now the new paper suggests the bacterial communities within tumors could be exploited to devise a new form of targeted therapies, in the same way we now develop drugs based on the molecular features of a tumor.  Unlock this article by subscribing to STAT+ and enjoy your first 30 days free!

Port Royal to be on UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites

first_img By Douglas McIntosh, JIS Reporter Advertisements Port Royal to be on UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites CultureMay 29, 2012 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT) has commenced work towards securing Port Royal’s inclusion on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO) list of World Heritage sites. The process involves a series of activities, focusing mainly on the portions of the Sunken City,  and adjoining areas over which the town’s existing layout was built, culminating with the preparation and submission of the nomination dossier to UNESCO in July 2014.  Port Royal is currently on UNESCO’s World Heritage tentative list, having been so placed in February 2009. One of the activities, an assessment of the sites, was conducted over the last week by a team, headed by Professor of the Nautical Archaeology programme, Anthropology Department, Texas A&M University, in the United States, Dr. Donny Hamilton. Speaking at the presentation of the findings, at the Morgan’s Harbour Hotel, Port Royal, on May 29, the JNHT’s Technical Director in charge of Archaeology, Dorrick Gray, said the week-long exercise entailed visiting and viewing the sunken structures beneath  the sea, within the harbour, and under the town’s existing buildings and general layout, totalling upwards of 51 acres, the state of which is well preserved. He said the team also undertook identification and defining of the boundaries encompassing the area to be nominated to the World Heritage list. These, he said, entailed the 51-acre core zone, which sank during the 1692 earthquake, and a buffer zone, which has been established to protect the former. Describing the week of activities as “fruitful,” Mr. Gray said activities to be undertaken and pursued over the ensuing months would be critical to preparing the nomination dossier for Port Royal. These, he informed, include consultations with all stakeholders in the town, including the residents. Additionally, he said UNESCO, which assisted the JNHT in carrying out the assessment, would be seeking to strengthen the nomination process by staging a number of workshops incorporating the agency. “We have a programme that we have to embark on, as of now. It has been amplified and strengthened and we can’t stop until 2014. It’s a long way and it’s a lot of work. But I am confident that  with all the persons who have been a part of the process, we will meet the deadline,” Mr. Gray  assured. In his remarks, Chairman, JNHT Board of Trustees, Ainsley Henriques, described Port Royal as a “very important aspect” of Jamaica’s history, which “tells lots of stories” about the country’s heritage.     “I charge our (JNHT) Heritage Sites Department to see, along with the citizens of Port Royal, that everybody understands this,”  Mr. Henriques urged.

N. Korda stays hot; Kupcho overcomes migraine

first_imgOCALA, Fla. – Nelly Korda didn’t miss a beat four days after her first LPGA Tour title on U.S. soil, outplaying her sister and the world’s No. 1 player for a 5-under 67 to share the lead at the Drive On Championship. Former NCAA champion Jennifer Kupcho managed a 67 despite playing most of the back nine with a migraine that blurs her vision. Austin Ernst also had a 67 at Golden Ocala. The third-ranked Korda was part of a featured group that played early before the cool morning yielded to warm sunshine. She played alongside her older sister, Jessica, who had a 69; and Jin Young Ko, the No. 1 player in women’s golf who had a 75. It’s a small sample size, but this has been the year of the Kordas. Jessica Korda won a playoff to start the LPGA season at the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. Nelly Korda had a three-shot victory last week in the Gainbridge LPGA at Lake Nona. Full-field scores from the Drive On Championship at Golden Ocala “Nelly and I were talking about being in a fish bowl today,” Jessica Korda said. Since winning at Lake Nona – her fourth career victory and first domestic title – Nelly Korda did a little laundry, took it easy with nine-hole practice rounds at Golden Ocala, tightened up her swing and it was like nothing had changed. Among her five birdies, she chipped in from 50 feet from the rough below the 10th green and down a ridge. Jessica Korda had six birdies, but she had to rally after taking a double bogey on the par-3 11th hole that left her 2 over for the round. She closed with four birdies over the last seven holes. There is no sibling rivalry with these two, and no bragging rights, either. “I think it’s just fun for us,” Nelly Korda said. “We have a lot of fun out there.” It wasn’t as much fun for Ko after she opened with a birdie. She shot 40 on the back nine and wound up with her highest start on the LPGA Tour since a 77 at Hazeltine in the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. Golden Ocala is renowned for having replica holes from famous courses, three of them from Augusta National and two from the Old Course at St. Andrews. Kupcho, along with her NCAA title at Wake Forest, captured the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur in 2019 with a back-nine charge. That day at the home of the Masters included her having to get through one of her migraines, in which her vision suffers. Kupcho plays through pain to share LPGA lead Thursday was not much different. “Honestly, about on 14 I was ready to get off the golf course,” Kupcho said. By then, she had already done enough right. Kupcho ran off four straight birdies, two short putts on the par 5s on the front nine sandwiched around a 10-footer on No. 6, and her final birdie was on the 13th. She said she had three migraines during the offseason and never knows when one is coming. This one started as she was over a shot early on the back nine. “Even right now, it’s really blurry,” Kupcho said. “I can’t really see anything over to the left. So, yeah, it’s definitely really hard. I pretty much just leaned a lot on my caddie and just trusted him and tried to do the best that I could.” Ernst got off to a rough start and was 2 over through four holes after back-to-back bogeys. She made seven birdies the rest of the way and shot 31 on the back nine. Jing Yan of China and Jaye Marie Green shot 68, and Lydia Ko was in the group at 69 with Jessica Korda. Second-ranked Sei Young Kim and No. 5 Danielle Kang shot 72. Lexi Thompson and Brooke Henderson opened with 74s.last_img read more

Atlanta Unemployment Rate Shows Encouraging Trend

first_img Metro Atlanta’s jobless rate seems to be moving in the right direction.Nine percent of Atlantans were unemployed in February, slightly better than January’s rate of 9.1 percent.  It’s not a huge improvement, but one labor economist says there’s reason to be optimistic.Despite the small month-to-month decrease in Atlanta’s jobless rate, it’s almost a full point lower than where it was a year ago. Tom Smith, a professor at Emory’s Goizueta Business School, says that’s an encouraging sign.“Any one month, you may have only a very small decrease,” Smith says, “What we’re seeing is very small decreases in unemployment. But we are seeing large decreases over 12 months, 15 months, and those are the kinds of changes that we really like to see in the economy.”Smith says to ensure long-term economic growth, government leaders should focus more on education.“More education credits, instead of decreasing the budgets in education, trying to make sure that we’re increasing the budgets in education,” he explains, “Educated workers make more productive workers.”Smith says government officials have implemented incentives, such as tax credits for the film industry. But he says it’s unclear whether those will translate into sustainable economic growth.
