Officials watch for flooding as Suicide Basin reservoir drains

So far, no significant rise has been recorded.Glacial flooding in the Mendenhall area has become a routine summer occurrence the last few years.Nico Bus lives along the Mendenhall River in a neighborhood where many backyards have seen a significant increase in erosion. He said they keep an eye out for flooding, but there’s not much else they can do.“Sometimes, like last year, I think it was five times. Some of them are insignificant and you’re just waiting for the big one,” Bus said.In June, researchers reported that the basin was draining rapidly, which usually signals the start of flooding. They later found that a glacial calving event likely caused water levels to rise suddenly.Mattice said residents should exercise caution.“Obviously it’s starting as a slow event and it could stay that way we just really don’t know,” Mattice said.Residents can monitor water levels on the National Weather Service’s website.

Cats can catch Covid-19 from other cats, study finds. The question is: Can we?

first_imgLeave this field empty if you’re human: Still the researchers suggested people should be aware of the possibility of transmission from cats to people, and keep cats away from anyone in a household who is suspected of being sick with Covid-19. “I think it’s good practice to have this in people’s minds,” Halfmann said. He and his co-authors also urged people not to abandon cats or give them up for adoption because of such concerns.They also advised cat owners to keep their cats indoors.“Cats are still much more likely to get Covid-19 from you, rather than you get it from a cat,” Keith Poulsen, director of the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, said in a statement. Please enter a valid email address. The researchers, led by virologist Yoshihiro Kawaoka, experimentally infected three cats, and then placed an uninfected cat into each of the cages housing the infected animals a day later. The three uninfected cats were all infected within five days.Halfmann said uninfected cats were also put into cages a foot away from the cages containing the infected cats. None of those felines became infected with the virus.In early April, Chinese researchers reported that cats and ferrets were susceptible to infection. A few weeks later the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that two pet cats in New York state had tested positive for the virus. At least eight big cats at the Bronx Zoo — tigers and lions — were also infected with the virus.Many research groups have reported on virus shedding with Covid-19 by simply conducting testing by polymerase chain reaction, or PCR. A positive PCR hit tells you that the human or animal is shedding something, but it doesn’t reveal if they are emitting viral debris — which poses no risk of infection — or actual infectious viruses.The researchers responsible for this work did attempt to grow viruses from swabs taken from the noses and rectums of the cats; they found that all the animals were emitting infectious viruses from their noses. None of the rectal swabs produced infectious virus.Halfmann said there was quite a lot of virus — between 30,000 and 50,000 virus particles per swab. But what that means isn’t clear, he said. It’s not known how big a dose of virus is needed to infect a person. And there’s no ethically acceptable way to construct a trial to see if cats can infect people. With sporadic reports in recent weeks of cats infected with the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, a group of researchers set out to determine whether cats can transmit the pathogen to one another.The answer, the scientists said: They can. The question now is whether felines can transmit SARS-CoV-2 back to people.Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Tokyo noted that none of the cats in their study was visibly ailing, but they shed the virus from their nasal passages for about six days.advertisement DMITRY SEREBRYAKOV/AFP via Getty Images Helen Branswell About the Author Reprints By Helen Branswell May 13, 2020 Reprints Privacy Policy “Considering the amount of virus we found coming out of the noses of the cats … there is the possibility that these cats are shedding, fomites are being released in a person’s household or at cat shelters or human societies and that somehow people could possibly pick up the virus. I think it’s something people should be aware of,” said Peter Halfmann, a research professor at the University of Wisconsin and first author of the study, published as a letter in the New England Journal of Medicine.center_img Atul Gawande to depart as CEO of splashy health venture.

TSX, Wall Street up modestly ahead of next Fed meeting

first_img In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average advanced 39.45 points to 22,370.80. The S&P 500 index inched forward 2.78 points to 2,506.65 and the Nasdaq composite index was ahead 6.68 points to 6,461.32. With the Fed expected to deliver an update on its view of the U.S. economy Wednesday, all eyes are on the central bank right now, said Peggy Bowie, a senior trader at Manulife Asset Management. “I would definitely say it’s quiet,” said Bowie. “Everybody’s got their fingers crossed in bond land.” At the meeting, forecasters expect the central bank to release details on the timing for when it might start shrinking its multitrillion-dollar stockpile of bonds. Traders will also be listening for any indications that the Fed could move sooner on a rate increase, although it’s widely expected that it will leave interest rates unchanged and stick to plans to raise rates in December. In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of US81.45¢, down 0.26 of a cent. Meanwhile in commodities, the November crude contract gave back US45¢ to US$49.90 per barrel and the October natural gas contract was down US2¢ to US$3.12 per mmBTU.

The showcase of national and international films took place March 22-28 at the TLC Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.Written and directed by SMC alum Kelly Thompson, “Shape Shifter” is a comedy that deals with the topic of body image. “It’s about a woman who sells weight loss products on an infomercial and she knows they don’t work,” said Thompson. “She finally has to come to a decision on whether she can continue doing that or not. It’s a moral decision.”“It’s a really personal script for me,” added Thompson. “When we first read the script in the class, tons of students stood up and discussed how they’ve had to deal with body issues, either with physical insecurities or other things.”“Shape Shifter” was shot in various locations around Los Angeles, with the SMC Film 33 “Making the Short Film” class functioning as a complete, professional film crew-in-training under the supervision of SMC Film Production head Prof. Salvador Carrasco.“I am very proud of what our students achieved with ‘Shape Shifter’ because it is a highly entertaining and intelligent comedy that delivers a powerful social commentary about body image, consumerism, and the need for us to seek answers within rather than without ourselves,” said Carrasco.SMC alumni Carrie Finklea and Michael Osborne also assisted as the film’s producing team. “‘Shape Shifter’ is a refined dark comedy about the infiltration of consumerism and its psychological impact on the individual,” said Finklea.  “If the product Brenda [the protagonist] represents is fraudulent, what does this mean about herself?”“This is one of the most talented casts of actors you could hope for,” added Osborne. Expanding on the film’s wider themes, Finklea said, “It is also a social commentary about other institutions, such as religion and corporate television. It brings to light the idea that we don’t question enough the institutions we blindly subscribe to.”On the opportunities afforded by the SMC Film Program, Thompson said, “I think two percent of Directors Guild of America (DGA) directors are women. It’s an exciting opportunity. I love that about the SMC Film Program, that Professor Carrasco tries to have equality between genders and economic backgrounds and [ethnicities]. Everyone who gets a chance deserves it.”The Golden State Film Festival is an annual event that aims to give emerging independent filmmakers a showcase for their talent. Filmmakers from the United States and across the world are eligible to participate. Both short and long form films are showcased at the festival. See goldenstatefilmfestival.com for more information.SMC student films have won numerous accolades—including a BAFTA nomination, the Panavision Limelight Award at the Ojai Film Festival, Best Short Drama at the San Diego Film Festival, Best Short at the Prague Independent Film Festival, Special Mention at the International Festival of Film Schools in Munich, and Winner at the Women’s Independent Film Festival—and have been selected to screen in numerous prestigious domestic and international film festivals. Four SMC student films have been accepted into The American Pavilion Emerging Filmmaker Showcase during the Cannes Film Festival.SMC offers an Associate of Science degree and Certificate of Achievement in film production.

Intel boss brands 2015 a “turning point” in computing; unveils ‘Curie’

first_img Author LIVE FROM CES 2015: Brian Krazanich, CEO of Intel, took to the keynote stage at CES2015 to describe the coming year as an “important turning point” when new technologies will change the way we interact with devices, using the term “Computing Unleashed”.Echoing his keynote at last year’s CES, much was also made of Intel’s efforts in the wearables space, which he described as “where mobile computing becomes personal”. And a third feature of the new computing model is “intelligence everywhere, where everything becomes smart and connected”.In a presentation that featured numerous demonstrations of future technologies, Krzanich said: “Up until now, computing has been defined by interaction with a screen, a mouse, and a keyboard. We are limited to just flat surfaces, and you could at most adjust, change, interact. But this is about to change.”“We are going to experience Computing Unleashed, where computing gains a new dimension. From that two dimensional world, to a three dimensional world. Computers are gaining senses. They are going to be able to see, and hear. And that will result in their ability to understand. They are becoming wirefree, giving new meaning to portable and mobile,” he said.With regard to wearables, Krzanich showcased a successor to Edison, unveiled last year at CES2014, which was “basically a computer the size of a postage stamp”.CurrieThe Intel chief said: “As engineers, we knew that we could do better. We knew we could make computers even smaller. And I have to tell you we have done it. We have made them so small, they are like the button on this jacket” – revealing the button sized mini-computer called Curie (pictured).Curie includes processor, Bluetooth LE radio, sensors and battery charging technology.Noting that the product is “just out of our labs”, Krzanich showed it running a step-counting app during his presentation.“This is just the first prototype of Curie. Curie is really meant to be a platform. It will be available in the second half of 2015. We are really excited to bring Curie to our partners. With this product, they can deliver wearables in a range of form factors – rings, bags, bracelets, pendants, and yes, even the buttons on our jackets,” he said.

Newton Understood that Nature Manifests Design of the Highest Order

first_imgRequesting a (Partial) Retraction from Darrel Falk and BioLogos Intelligent Design Newton Understood that Nature Manifests Design of the Highest OrderMichael EgnorJanuary 1, 2018, 5:58 PM Tags2018atheismcalculusChristianitydesignEngineeringgravitationIsaac NewtonMind of GodmotionNew YearNewtonian mechanicspantokratorphysicsprophecyscienceScientific EnlightenmentscientismTrinity,Trending To all our readers I wish a happy and blessed 2018. We have much to celebrate in this season, and I would suggest that in addition to our traditional celebrations, we take a moment to give thanks for the life of a man who was born in 1642.Isaac Newton transformed mathematics and physics. He (co)discovered calculus, and discovered the principles of motion and gravitation that form the basis of most modern physics and engineering. Even the great advances of the 20th century in relativity and quantum mechanics were elaborations on, or formulated in distinction to, Newtonian mechanics.Some atheists have implicitly claimed Newton as their own. They woefully misunderstand Newton and the Scientific Enlightenment.Newton, like virtually all the great scientists who have given us modern science, was a passionate Christian. He was unorthodox; his beliefs are best described as non-Trinitarian monotheism, bordering on Deism. Yet he wrote more extensively about biblical prophecy and Christianity than about physics and mathematics, and he believed that the harmony and mathematical beauty in nature were the design of the universe from the Mind of God.He wrote:This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent Being. […] This Being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord over all; and on account of his dominion he is wont to be called “Lord God” παντοκρατωρ [pantokratōr], or “Universal Ruler”. […] The Supreme God is a Being eternal, infinite, [and] absolutely perfect…Newton held atheism in disdain:Opposition to godliness is atheism in profession and idolatry in practice. Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors.Newton understood that nature manifests Design of the highest order, and that science, properly understood, is the study of the intelligent design of the universe. Atheist belief — the denial of intelligent design in the natural world — is the antithesis of science. Atheistic scientism is akin to idolatry, and is an ideologically motivated refusal to acknowledge the obvious design manifest in the natural world.Newton’s revolutionary research was an exemplar of the indispensability of inference to intelligent design in science. This design inference was shared by virtually all the great scientists of the past several centuries, from Copernicus to Galileo to Kepler to Faraday to Pasteur to Maxwell to Einstein.So with the New Year I’m thankful for many blessings. In my prayers, I give our Creator thanks for the blessing of modern science, given to us through scientists like Isaac Newton who explicitly seek and reveal nature’s intelligent design.Image: Isaac Newton, by William Blake [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons.
