APTN National NewsTransCanada Corporation announced Friday it is seeking a 30-day suspension of its application for Energy East Pipeline and Eastern Mainline Project to review the changes announced by the National Energy Board (NEB).TransCanada cited concerns with the NEB’s changes to the issues and environmental assessment factors and the impact of those changes on project costs.Earlier this summer the NEB stated it will now be assessing downstream greenhouse gas emissions as well as direct emissions in the assessment of the project.Read Notice here: TransCanada The NEB stated on its website and by Twitter that it has received TransCanada’s request, and are reviewing the request and will release an answer publicly in a “timely manner”.Energy East is a proposed 4,500 kilometer pipeline to transport crude oil from Alberta to the Maritimes.Eastern Mainline is a proposal for 279 km of new pipeline in Ontario.TransCanada also announced the day before that it is extending the period for which it is accepting contracts for future delivery in the Keystone pipeline citing Gulf Coast hurricane flooding as contributing to the disinterest.Contact APTN National News here: email@example.com
OTTAWA — High-level meetings are set to resume this week in Washington in an effort to bring Canada into a revised North American Free Trade Agreement.The renewed effort comes as the Opposition Conservatives criticize Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for the tactics his government has been using to get a NAFTA deal done.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday that she and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer have agreed to meet again face-to-face to try to reach an understanding about each other’s positions on NAFTA, although an exact meeting schedule hadn’t been set.Freeland said trade officials from Canada and the U.S. have been meeting in the American capital since last Thursday, continuing what the minister described as “intensive” talks aimed at reaching a deal.U.S.-Canada NAFTA talks are poised to come to a head this weekWho has leverage at the NAFTA table? Hint, it isn’t just Donald TrumpAs NAFTA talks drag on, a rational deal seems less likely — and that will shake marketsThe discussions are being held under a Sept. 30 deadline for getting the text of an agreement to the U.S. Congress.President Donald Trump started the clock ticking last month when his administration informed Congress of a U.S.-Mexico trade pact, which he invited Canada to join.Freeland told reporters in Ottawa, where MPs were returning to Parliament after their summer break, that she and Lighthizer would meet later this week.“The specifics of our calendar we haven’t quite yet worked out.”The Conservatives have for the most part, until now, made efforts to project a team Canada spirit with the Liberals as the talks have progressed.But Opposition House Leader Candice Bergen criticized the prime minister Monday for his approach to the talks, saying the Conservatives would have done things differently.“We certainly wouldn’t have gone in and lectured on things like gender rights and the environment,” Bergen said when asked how the Conservatives would have handled the negotiations.“What the prime minister had done in these trade negotiations is tick people off,” she said.But when it comes to the NAFTA talks, Trudeau said during a live interview event with Maclean’s Magazine in Ottawa Monday night he would not do anything differently.Trudeau was asked about two incidents that irked Trump — the first being comments he made during his press conference in Charlevoix, Que. after the G7 summit and secondly — Freeland’s acceptance speech at an award ceremony in Washington where she denounced Trump’s “absurd” tariffs and argued for the preservation of the world’s rules-based order — with or without the United States.“As I’ve said from the very beginning, Canadians expect me, particularly with this administration, expect us as a government to do two very important things: One is have a constructive relationship with the American government and two, continue to stand up clearly and strongly for our values and our principles and Canadian interests.”Doing both of these things sometimes “bump up” against each other, said Trudeau, adding that it is important to highlight to Americans who Canadians are and where they stand.Trudeau said Canada could be days or weeks away from signing a new NAFTA, but qualified his optimism by saying they may not be that close, reiterating that the government is looking to sign a good deal.While Canada has been pushing for chapters in NAFTA aimed at strengthening labour protections and gender equality, the overall negotiations are said to have stalled over Canada’s insistence that an agreement contain an independent dispute-settlement mechanism.Trudeau has also vowed to protect Canada’s supply management for dairy and poultry products against U.S. demands for greater access by its farmers to Canada’s dairy market.Supply management has been a big issue in the provincial election campaign in Quebec, home to about half of Canada’s dairy farms.Quebec Liberal Leader Philippe Couillard has warned there will be “serious political consequences” if there is any further dismantling of the protections for dairy farmers through NAFTA negotiations.The issue was expected to play prominently Monday evening in the provincial party leaders’ second election debate — this one in English.Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his economic development minister, Jim Wilson, were scheduled to travel to Washington on Wednesday for an update on the NAFTA talks, which the premier characterized as critical to his province’s agriculture, automotive and steel industries.Ford’s team is expected to meet with Canada’s trade officials, as well as the Canadian ambassador to the United States, and the premier said in a statement that he planned to stress the need to protect Ontario workers.Freeland said she would welcome any efforts by the provinces to bolster Canada’s position at the bargaining table. “I think that the involvement of premiers from provinces and territories across the country has been very positive.”
UNICEF said that the region of Afghanistan and Pakistan accounted for 30.8 per cent – or 77 of the world’s 250 total polio cases in 2001, making the region a priority for the international community within its global Polio Eradication Initiative. During National Immunization Days, also known as “NIDs,” UNICEF, the World Health Organization (WHO), Rotary International and other organizations support national and local authorities in the global initiative of polio eradication and strengthening immunization programmes for children in the region, including Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Iran. During the NID, doses of oral polio vaccines are given to all children under five years of age, in as short period of time as possible (preferably 1-2 days), regardless of their immunization status. NIDs are normally conducted as two rounds of mass immunization, the second round occurring approximately four to six weeks after the first.For Afghan children, UNICEF will follow the first round of polio vaccinations that reached 5 million children in September by concentrating from 6 to 8 November on the border areas of neighbouring countries and certain cities inside Afghanistan – Mazar-I-Sharif, Faisabad, Herat, Kabul, Kandahar, and Jalalabad. As for reaching children in Taliban-controlled areas, “neither WHO nor UNICEF have control over the Taliban,” UNICEF said. “From all indications, the Minister of Health and the local health authorities for the Taliban-controlled areas intend to go ahead with the NIDs.”

TAOISEACH ENDA KENNY says the rejection of the Croke Park 2 public pay deal means public sector workers no longer have any automatic protection against mandatory redundancies.Kenny said workers had voted on the proposed pay deal, which would have cut €300 million from public pay this year, knowing that it would have guaranteed them protection against public redundancies.He said the workers’ rejection of the deal meant there was now no such protection for workers.“That was an inherent part of it,” Kenny told the Dáil, referring to the pay cuts. “But of course, if there’s no agreement, there’s no protection – and that’s the point.In the negotiations between the Labour Relations Commission and the unions on Croke Park 2, employment was protected by those negotiations and protected under Croke Park 2.It’s absolutely true to say that if you have no agreement, you don’t have that inherent protection. That’s fact. Kenny’s dramatic comments, made in the Dáil this morning, suggest that the government now believes the original Croke Park agreement – which was due to run until June 2014, and which ruled out any mandatory redundancies – is now null and void.The Taoiseach also defended the presentation of revised Budget figures which included the Croke Park 2 pay cuts, which were published even after public workers voted to reject the proposals for saving €300 million.His comments came after Micheál Martin queried comments from public expenditure minister Brendan Howlin, who last night told the Dáil that if the government was a private sector employee, it would not be pulling ahead with mandatory job cuts.Martin claimed the government was ready to proceed with unilateral pay cuts, and that laws cutting pay and pensions for public workers were being drafted and ready to go if LRC chairman Kieran Mulvey’s talks with union representatives did not lead to a second round of pay negotiations.He said this was in spite of the government’s insistence that the rejected Croke Park 2 deals could only be ‘tweaked’ rather than facing a total overhaul.The Taoiseach’s comments followed those of Pat Rabbitte, who this morning said the rejection of the Croke Park 2 agreement meant “theoretically” the government could pursue job cuts.He added, however, “there’s no particular will on the part of government to remove that protection from public sector workers,” he told RTÉ.Read: Revised Budget figures presented to Dáil – including Croke Park 2 cutsMore: Government to seek negotiations with unions over cutting €300m from pay
INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — Call it a politician boldly going where no one has gone before.On Thursday, David Waddell used the Klingon language to write his letter of resignation from the Indian Trail Town Council in North Carolina.Waddell says he opted to use Klingon, the language of a warrior race on the “Star Trek” TV shows and movies, as an inside joke. Mayor Michael Alvarez is calling the letter unprofessional.Waddell says he is resigning at the end of this month. His four-year term expires in December 2015.Waddell says he also needs to devote time to mounting a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party’s platform against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.

Rohingya refugee. Photo: Syful-IslamIndia will provide Myanmar with $25 million for development projects including prefabricated houses in troubled Rakhine state to enable the return of Rohingya Muslims who have fled the area, the foreign ministry said on Thursday.More than 600,000 Rohingya have escaped to Bangladesh after attacks by insurgents on Myanmar security forces in August triggered a military crackdown that the United Nations has called ethnic cleansing.Beijing has also stepped into the Rohingya crisis and proposed a three-phase plan including a ceasefire, bilateral talks and then tackling poverty long-term.The international community demands the Rohingya be allowed to go home in safety, and Bangladesh and Myanmar have begun talks on repatriation, but huge doubts remain about the Rohingya ever being able to return in peace to rebuild homes and till fields.India, which is concerned about the influx of the refugees into its territory, has stressed economic development of the Rakhine region as a way to help lower tensions.India foreign secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar held talks with Myanmar leaders on Wednesday and signed a memorandum of understanding to support development of Rakhine and help create jobs.“This is intended to help the government of Myanmar achieve its objective of restoration of normalcy in Rakhine state and enable the return of displaced persons,” the Indian foreign ministry said in a statement.“Under this MoU, the government of India proposes to take up, among others, a project to build prefabricated housing in Rakhine state so as to meet the immediate needs of returning people.”India will spend $25 million over the next five years on development of the impoverished region, foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar said.Besides housing, the proposals include building schools, healthcare facilities and building bridges and roads.India has been trying to promote economic cooperation with Myanmar to try to push back against China’s expansive involvement in infrastructure development across south Asia.
Until the early 1900s came along, if you wanted to take a trip of any distance in the United States, you had to saddle up. Yep, we’re talking about horse-drawn carriages and buggies. By the early 1910s, a different kind of horsepower hit the road — and in a big way, eventually outnumbering their carrot-munching counterparts.Congestion in St. Louis, Missouri, early 20th century.In 1909 there were 200,000 motorized cars in the U.S.; by 1916, the number had mushroomed considerably, to 2.25 million. Not surprisingly, bedlam prevailed.There were no stop signs, traffic lights, lane lines, brake lights, driver’s licenses, or posted speed limits.Driver’s Ed didn’t exist (Missouri didn’t require driving tests until 1952). Drinking and driving? Not that big a deal.Mulberry Street, on the Lower East Side, c. 1900.Pennsylvania, in 1909, was the first state to set a minimum driving age (18 years). Before then, children as young as 11 or 12 could slide behind the wheel of the family car. U.S. highways didn’t even have center lines until 1911 — good move, Michigan!And then, there was the traffic: cars, buggies, bicyclists, streetcars, and pedestrians, all fighting for the right-of-way.Easter Sunday in 1900.Autos would eventually win out, with drivers engaged in all sorts of hair-raising maneuvers.Motorists parked wherever the heck they wanted, even smack-dab in the middle of intersections and “cut corners,” making sharp left turns at intersections, much like we make right turns today, hitting pedestrians and cars in the process.Auto-inspired slang became part of the vernacular: hit and run, joyriders, road hogs, Sunday drivers, and juggernauts (out of control cars that plowed through crowds of people).New York Fifth Avenue, 1900.But the main cause of accidents in the early 1900s was speeding. Compared to the plodding pace of carriages, being able to whiz along at a “speed” of up to 20 miles an hour was exhilarating and drivers took full advantage — hitting corners at high speeds, which often caused their cars to skid, “turn turtle” (slang for flipping over), or smash into other road users.Read a 1919 edition of the Detroit Free Press: “Screaming pedestrians were scattered like ninepins …some were bowled over or tossed against storefronts. [The driver’s companion], evidentially frightened by the cries of the crowd, leaped from his seat and running swiftly disappeared into the darkness.”Auto accident on Bloor Street West in 1918.People hopping off of streetcars would have to race through a tangle of cars, trucks and horse-drawn, before reaching the (relative) safety of a sidewalk.In 1901, Connecticut became the first state to pass an official speed limit: 12 mph in cities and 15 mph on rural roads. But up until 1930, a dozen states allowed drivers to go as fast as they wanted.By 1917, the city of Detroit and its surrounding suburbs had an estimated 65,000 cars on the road, resulting in 7,171 accidents (168 of them fatalities).Car wreck, USA.Three-quarters of the victims were pedestrians. Even more disturbing: the number of children struck and killed as they played in the street. In the 1920s, 60 percent of fatalities nationwide were children under the age of nine.The courts and police initially came up with a simple solution: have the speed limit for cars mirror the pace of horse-drawn wagons (about five miles an hour).But the speed was so slow that automobile owners had a devil of a time keeping their cars from conking out. It was time to bring in the big guns — namely, the police.A pile up. Photo by Hulton-Deutsch/Hulton-Deutsch Collection/Corbis via Getty ImagesBut even the men in blue couldn’t handle this growing problem. In one afternoon in 1911, police hauled in no less than 450 people on speeding charges! By 1916, a quarter of the Detroit police force was being used to handle traffic.One program employed by the big cities was dubbed the Traffic Squad, a rotating group of policemen, who used hand signals to control traffic…which only confounded the general public.Traffic Squad Police.Wrote one exasperated reporter in a Detroit newspaper, circa 1916: “The drivers who happened to notice the signals of the officers did not seem to understand what was wanted and drove by, making it necessary for the traffic officer to run after them and explain the meaning of the signal. The officers had to show considerable patience.”After World War I, the accident rates continued to soar, and drivers were being demonized in newspapers as “remorseless murderers.” Reckless types were even pulled from their cars by angry onlookers.Traffic Squad police, 1911.Some believed the automobile was an instrument of evil. The state of Georgia’s Court of Appeals wrote: “Automobiles are to be classed with ferocious animals and … the law relating to the duty of owners of such animals is to be applied … However, they are not to be classed with bad dogs, vicious bulls, evil-disposed mules, and the like.”In 1919 Detroit, bells rang out twice a day at churches and City Hall in memory of the victims of auto fatalities.Teachers would read to students the names of classmates who had been killed by cars.Traffic violator driving a 1900-vintage car being stopped by a policeman on a bicycle.Safety parades, a phenomenon started in the 1920s, brought home the consequences of the careless driving.Thousands of spectators watched as wrecks of cars were towed down the street with signs that read “Follow this one to the cemetery.” Some featured mannequins: Satan, behind the wheel, with his bloody, ill-fated passengers riding shotgun.5th Avenue, New York City.Crippled children, victims of collisions, sometimes rode in the back of open cars, sadly waving to the crowd.Finally, in the mid-1920s, Herbert Hoover, the then-U.S. Secretary of Commerce, took action. Car manufacturers introduced safety features (turn signals, brake lights, and headlights, among them). States started instituting driver’s exams and judicial courts began handling traffic violations.Pedestrians were held accountable, as well, for causing accidents with jaywalking. A system was put in place whereby they would cross streets at designated corners.Read another story from us: Red Means Stop! The Curious History of Traffic LightsOfficials also found a way to control traffic, with much less manpower. Stop signs, for one thing, became commonplace, as were traffic lights, invented by Lester Wire, a policeman, and first installed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1914.
WhatsApp Two-step verification by Martin Brinkmann on November 11, 2016 in Internet – Last Update: February 10, 2017 – 13 commentsThe most recent beta of the WhatsApp messaging app for Android supports two-step verification now to improve security of the account.Update: Two-step verification is now available for all WhatsApp users once the latest update has been installed on the mobile device. The instructions below are still valid on how to set up two-step verification to better secure WhatsApp.The introduction of two-step verification is usually a good thing, but WhatsApp implementation is quite different from what you may expect.Instead of protecting the account by requiring a second code when accessing the application, it is protecting the phone number from being added on another device.The set up process itself is similar to those of other services. You set a six digit code and a recovery email address to protect the phone number from being added by others.You are probably wondering how this could even happen, that someone else adds your phone number to WhatsApp.The only two scenarios that I can think of are if you have switched to another phone number, or if someone gets hold of your SIM card (either directly or by copying it).So, if your mobile provider assigns your phone number to someone else because it is available again, that someone might set up WhatsApp with that phone number. This works directly if you did not have two-step verification enabled for that phone number, or after 45 days if you did.So, the extra code protects the phone number in that 45 days period. WhatsApp notes that it will remove the old account data tied to the phone number after the 45 days period.The second possibility works only if the attacker manages to steal the pin as well, if the pin is cracked, or if there is no pin protection at all. This scenario does not seem all that likely if you ask me.Setting up WhatsApp Two-step verificationDo the following to set up Two-step verification for your WhatsApp account:Open WhatsApp Messenger on your device.Tap on the menu icon and select Settings.Select Account on the Settings page.Tap on Two-step verification.A page opens that explains what two-step verification does when enabled: “for added security, enable two-step verification to require a passcode when registering your phone number with WhatsApp”.Tap on the enable button.Enter a six digit passcode that is used for the purpose.Confirm the passcode.You may add an email address in this step. You can skip it, but have no option to reset the passcode if you forget it then.Confirm the Email address if you decided to add it.Two-step verification is now enabled for the account. No one will be able to active WhatsApp with that phone number unless the passcode is supplied.Please note that access to the email address is sufficient as well, as you may reset the passcode using the backup email address.The menu lists options to disable two-step verification, to change the passcode, or to change the email address. (via Android Police)Now you: What’s your take on the new two-step verification security option of WhatsApp?SummaryArticle NameWhatsApp Two-step verificationDescriptionThe most recent beta of the WhatsApp messaging app for Android supports two-step verification now to improve security of the account.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
News | Computed Tomography (CT) | June 17, 2019 International Working Group Releases New Multiple Myeloma Imaging Guidelines An International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) has developed the first set of new recommendations in 10 years for… read more PET/CT routinely plays an essential role in staging and monitoring a wide range of cancers, including lymphoma and the lung. But it has specific and significant limitations. In a skeptical world, old maxims fall hard. Photojournalists can attest to that. Seeing today is anything but believing. Not seeing has fallen just as hard. We’d like to know that we can relax when we don’t see signs of cancer’s return. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) provides that kind of relief in many cases…but not all.Although it has become the gold standard in oncology diagnosis and monitoring, PET/CT falls short in some cases. And, in those cases, its use can create a false sense of security. “We sometimes find that PET has been used inappropriately for certain tumor types,” Michael Vannier, M.D., professor of radiology at the University of Chicago, told me. “Renal cell cancer and prostate cancer are notoriously difficult to image with FDG-PET.” Make no mistake — PET/CT routinely plays an essential role in staging and monitoring patients battling a wide range of cancers, including lymphoma and that of the lung. But it has specific and significant limitations. Prescribing and administering the correct diagnostic tests should restore faith in the maxim, “Seeing is believing.” Knowing which modalities to use under what circumstances constitutes the great contribution that radiology has to make to medical practice now and in the future.You’d think, therefore, that radiologists would want to enhance their credibility by supplying to referring physicians the images upon which they base their findings. Yet, for the most part, radiology reports are textual…not visual. Perhaps referring docs have grown used to this and, despite the unprecedented ease by which images can be transferred today, they have no interest in getting those images.What could change this attitude would be a groundswell of interest by the patients themselves. The explosion in smart phones and their applications has put the ability to view medical images at patients’ fingertips. At the same time, an increasing availability of patient portals is laying the foundation for accessing these images. If patients have them — and want to discuss them with their doctors — you can be sure doctors will want them as well. With that could come a dramatic change in the practice of radiology. The question is whether radiologists will be ready, when seeing means business.Greg Freiherr has reported on developments in radiology since 1983. He runs the consulting service, The Freiherr Group.

In the wake of the deadly Paphos speedboat accident which cost a woman her life this week, chief boat inspector at the Ministry of Communication and Works Kyriacos Kofteros said there is a need to find ways to improve the safety of speed boats, and that the Department of Merchant Shipping is preparing to amend legislation for all vessels less than 24 metres long.Speedboats are like rental cars, Kofteros said, since the operator is not employed by the company who owns the boat.“The department of merchant shipping cannot know who handles the ship, unless they accidentally find out or if the port police find the operator,” he said.Regarding the Blue Lagoon area where the latest accident happened, the inspector said that there are no buoys in the area that divide the swimming section of the sea from the part, 100 metres from the beach, where boats are allowed.Investigations into the accident are continuing and it is important to find out who was steering the boat. One of the injured people, a woman in hospital in Paphos, will be asked later on to supply this information.On Friday, the speedboat is expected to be examined to see if there was a mechanical failure, Kofteros said.The speedboat crashed into rocks off Latchi on Monday night, killing one Chinese woman and critically injuring three others.Aboard the boat were the woman, 32, along with a Chinese couple and their two children, who were in Cyprus on holiday, and the boat’s operator.Damage to the boat, which was found on Tuesday seven nautical miles from Latchi port, suggests it had been traveling at excessive speed too close to the shore, according to investigators.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppTake Online Privacy on a whole New levelFigLeaf Beta AppUndoYahoo Search | Search AdsStop Joint Pain.

However, Nature 101038/s41586-018-0150-y (2018) Elusive master organizer of human embryo growth seen for the first time By Kelly ServickMay 23 2018 1:00 PM As an early embryo every mammal bird and reptile contains a clump of cells with a remarkable power Called “the organizer” it prompts neighboring cells to develop into what will later become the animal’s brain and spinal cord Biologists have not been able to show that such an organizer exists in human embryos because of ethical constraints on such research But now for the first time these organizer cells have emerged in a dish of human stem cells—and researchers have proved their developmental powers by using them to seed the beginnings of a second nervous system in the embryo of a chicken “It is mind-blowing” that cells from such evolutionarily distant species can share these developmental instructions says Ali Brivanlou a stem cell biologist at The Rockefeller University in New York City and a senior author on the new study The organizer “has been conserved evolutionarily over hundreds of millions of years so not seeing it would have been a surprise” he says But “There is something really emotional about looking that far back at human origin” The study of the organizer has bizarre and legendary beginnings In the early 1920s German embryologist Hans Spemann and his graduate student Hilde Mangold were exploring how the embryos of vertebrate animals transform from a hollow ball of cells to a multilayered structure organized along an axis from future head to future tail In that transition the embryo forms a furrow called the primitive streak and folds inward on itself while cells mature into different lineages that will later give rise to all the organs and tissues of the body In salamander embryos Spemann and Mangold found a unique cluster of cells at one end of the streak When grafted into the embryo of a different salamander species it prompted nearby cells to form the beginnings of a brain and spinal cord—a nascent second salamander belly to belly with the first The study considered one of the most important in developmental biology earned Spemann the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1935 “It was the dawn of manipulating different parts of the embryo to ask ‘Where does the information come from … to make a brain or discrete organs’” Brivanlou says Since then scientists have found similar organizers—sometimes called Spemann organizers—in the embryos of frogs birds and mice But to see a human organizer they would have to culture embryos a day or two longer than the 14-day threshold that international guidelines and UK law have set That’s the point when an embryo is no longer able to divide into twins and could thus be considered an individual So Brivanlou and his team in collaboration with the lab of Rockefeller University physicist Eric Siggia found a workaround They cultured stem cells derived from human embryos—which have the potential to develop into any type of cell in the body—on specially patterned lab dishes where they take on embryolike structures In the new experiment the team exposed the cells to two proteins that are key to embryonic development Those growth factors prompted some of the cells to express the genetic hallmarks of an organizer Then came the Spemann and Mangold-inspired graft When the researchers put some of these human cells into a chicken embryo an organized line of neural tissue appeared alongside the chicken’s own emerging nervous system the team reports online today in Nature The human organizer cells—themselves destined to become other (nonneural) types of tissue—could apparently direct the chicken cells to change their fate and start to orient themselves around a second body axis Developmental biologist Claudio Stern of University College London calls the work “a nice technical advance” albeit one with major limitations This new ability to make organizerlike cells outside of the developing human embryo could help researchers understand what gives these cells their unique signaling abilities But the method is no substitute for the study of the organizer in a real embryo which could consist of a more diverse mixture of cells than what emerged from the stem cell colonies To find out researchers would have to go beyond the 14-day culture limit something not considered technically feasible until recently “If we could work on it for a day or two more” Stern says “we could actually study the real organizer” Still the new method could be used to study how the signaling between cells during early development varies between humans and other species says Ben Steventon a developmental biologist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kindgom who was not involved in the study Meanwhile Brivanlou plans to use his embryolike cell colonies to explore key steps in early development—and tease out various ways that the process can go wrong He plans to use the CRISPR gene-editing tool to introduce disease-causing mutations and observe their effects on some of the earliest stages of development Even the 4-day window during which his group can keep these embryolike colonies growing is “plenty of time” to explore he says “That’s going to keep us busy for a couple of generations” it also asserted that no other stations had reported waterlogging and the services were running
