Getting a detailed picture of Ebola

first_img Read Full Story The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT is now “the world’s most powerful factory for analyzing genes from people and viruses,” according to an article in the New York Times, published December 1, 2014. The article highlighted the work of Pardis Sabeti, a senior associate member at the Broad, associate professor in the Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases at Harvard School of Public Health, and associate professor, Center for Systems Biology, Harvard University Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. She has been a leader in the effort to analyze Ebola’s genetic code and track its mutations.Sabeti and her colleagues have found that the virus is continually mutating — and this is “always something we should be concerned about,” she told the Times. However, she added that it would probably take many major mutations for the virus to become airborne or more virulent. “But, again, any change is one change too many, and we should stop this thing as quickly as we can,” she said.last_img read more

Georgia alumni invite SEC teams to root against Alabama — and it went horribly wrong

first_imgLook @ufalumni, we’ve said a lot of things to each other over the years… But at least we never made Tim Tebow cry. Cheer for revenge against Bama, and come be a #DawgForADay. #SECChampionship | #GoDawgs | #BeatBama— UGA Alumni (@ugaalumniassoc) November 29, 2018The University of Florida’s Alumni Twitter page was not so willing to jump on the bandwagon, which resulted in a funny back-and-forth between the two— UGA Alumni (@ugaalumniassoc) November 29,— UGA Alumni (@ugaalumniassoc) November 29, 2018 A Georgia win this weekend could potentially benefit the University of Florida, but it still seems unlikely that any Florida alumni will willingly root for either team.A few other SEC schools responded to Georgia’s invite.— Auburn University (@AuburnU) November 29,— Ole Miss Alumni (@OleMissAlumni) November 29, 2018 The Georgia Bulldogs will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2018 SEC championship game on Saturday, and the University of Georgia Alumni Association hopes to recruit some new Dawg fans ahead of the big game.The UGA Alumni Twitter page extended invites to Mississippi State, Auburn, LSU and the University of Florida, among other SEC schools, to become a #DawgForADay and join them in rooting against the Crimson Tide.  MORE: College Football Playoff rankings: Plotting six scenarioslast_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Dalvin Cook, Jordan Howard, Marlon Mack, more affect Week 14 RB rankings

first_imgBreida’s return makes San Francisco an even more confusing fantasy backfield after Raheem Mostert dominated touches over Tevin Coleman in Week 13. You can’t trust any of the three as more than a FLEX (and even that’s risky) against a solid Saints defense.When can Kerryon Johnson return from IR?Johnson (knee) returned to Lions practice Wednesday. He’s eligible to be activated from Injured Reserve for Week 16. The Lions take on a decent Broncos run defense in Week 16, so fantasy leagues that play their championship that week would be taking a big chance on Johnson. A Week 17 matchup with the Packers shapes up better for Johnson, who is a more worthy stash if your league goes through Week 17. The start of the fantasy playoffs in Week 14 will likely see the return of Dalvin Cook after last Monday’s injury provided a scare for his owners. That will mean popular waiver pickup Alexander Mattison’s value goes down, though. Elsewhere in the RB rankings, Jordan Howard, Josh Jacobs, Matt Breida, Damien Williams and Marlon Mack are in varying states of questionable for Week 14, while James Conner has already been ruled out. Looking ahead, Kerryon Johnson might make it back for fantasy championship week. We have updates on all of these players below. For updates on banged-up TEs Evan Engram, Greg Olsen, Gerald Everett, and David Njoku, click here; for news on injured WRs Adam Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Julio Jones, and more, go here. Follow us on Twitter for more news and updates @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Dalvin Cook playing Week 14?Cook has said on multiple occasions this week that he’ll play in Week 14 after leaving in Week 13 due to a chest/shoulder injury. He was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice due to a “chest” injury, though, which is technically what kept him limited a bit last week.It’s a bit odd that Cook says he’s totally fine after his injury kept him out for most of the second half of a big game against Seattle, but it looks like he should get at least nearly his full workload Sunday against the Lions’ brutal run defense. His handcuff, Alexander Mattison, is in play due to the matchup if it looks like Cook could be limited at all. WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPJordan Howard injury updateHoward hasn’t been cleared for contact for his shoulder injury as of Thursday morning. Philadelphia’s first practice injury report of the week will come out Thursday ahead of a Monday night game against the Giants.At this point, Howard’s injury seems unknown enough that we can’t expect anything from him unless he makes it back on the practice field with a clearance for contact. Until then, Miles Sanders is an RB2 play heading into Monday night, and if you’re counting on Howard, you may want to find an alternative.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Marlon Mack playing Week 14?UPDATE: Mack got in a full practice on Thursday.Mack had been targeting a Week 14 return from his hand injury, and he returned to the practice field Wednesday as a limited participant. Mack hasn’t played since Week 11. Indianapolis travels to Tampa Bay to play the Buccaneers on Sunday.The Bucs’ have one of the league’s stoutest run defenses, so Mack is probably no more than a decent FLEX play if he’s active. Mack’s return spells an end to the value and frustration of Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams, while Nyheim Hines should maintain his usual receiving back role.MORE WEEK 14:Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSJosh Jacobs injury updateJacobs has reportedly been playing with a fractured shoulder since Week 7 and missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. His availability for Week 14’s game against the Titans is in question. If Jacobs is out, DeAndre Washington figures to see the majority of carries, while Jalen Richard would also mix in on both runs and passes. It’s tough to trust either in standard leagues, though Washington is the preferred handcuff. Richard could easily have more value in PPR formats.MORE WEEK 14: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emJames Conner injury updateConner (shoulder) has already been ruled out for Week 14’s game against the Cardinals.Benny Snell Jr. will once again dominate carries, and Jaylen Samuel will have moderate PPR value in this favorable matchup. Damien Williams, Darrel Williams injury updatesAfter ESPN reported Tuesday that Damien (ribs) has “a chance to play” in Week 14, both Williams missed out on practice Wednesday. Darrel was placed on Injured Reserve on Thursday morning, ending his season, while Damien missed practice again Thursday.The Chiefs play in New England at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday, so this isn’t an ideal situation regardless. Damien would be usable in PPR formats and as a FLEX in standard leagues if he’s active, while his activation would make the rest of KC’s backs (LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson) players to sit this week.MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderMatt Breida injury updateBreida (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday. He hasn’t played since being injured in Week 10, but after limited practices last week and a full practice Wednesday, he should be good to go for Sunday in New Orleans.last_img read more

Trump Signs 60-Day Immigration Suspension, with Exceptions

first_imgHe followed that up with this tweet on Wednesday: President Trump on Wednesday evening signed an executive order “temporarily suspending immigration into the United States.”Trump said the move, which he announced in a Monday tweet, was necessary to help Americans get back to work after the coronavirus pandemic.“This will ensure that unemployed Americans of all backgrounds will be first in line for jobs as our economy reopens,” he said.The order includes a long list of exemptions, including for people who are currently in the country and those who are seeking entry to the U.S. to work as physicians and nurses, in addition to spouses and minor children of American citizens. The 60-day suspension also does not affect hundreds of thousands of temporary work visas which the country issues every year.The temporary policy will limit the ability of current green card holders to sponsor their extended families, a practice the president has previously called “chain immigration” and tried to restrict.On Monday, Trump tweeted: In discussing the action, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said, “This is common sense the American people can very well understand: When Americans need jobs, Americans must come first.”“The president’s immigration policy just makes sense,” agreed Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh. With 22 million Americans applying for unemployment in recent weeks, he asked, “Why would you in good conscience introduce brand-new competition for them?”last_img read more
