Many eyes are on Puerto Rico these days, after Hurricane Maria left the island of 3.5 million people without basic services. Getting less attention is tiny Vieques, an island that’s part of Puerto Rico, and home to just 9,000 people. Vieques too has been decimated. But it’s been grappling with an emergency situation for decades. Vieques was practically cut-off from civilization after Hurricane Maria. In addition to almost no communication, running water or fuel, medications have been scarce. Lines at the pharmacy are extremely long and the island’s only hospital had its generator stolen. Correspondent Gerry Hadden visited Vieques before it was hit by Hurricane Maria. He reports on the ongoing fa... Read More

Early in his career, Paul Newman personified a young man in a hurry forced to wait his turn. His go-getter characters infiltrated the old-boy network, wore the gray flannel suit, and toiled away before finally, in midlife, grabbing the brass ring and coasting for home. In “The Young Philadelphians” (1959), for instance, Newman played Tony Lawrence, whose mother, over his cradle, gloats, “Someday, he’ll take the place in this city that belongs to him.” Young Philadelphians, it’s clear, are merely old Philadelphians in the making.

What Protects Elephants from Cancer?

In Business, Education, Emerging Technology, Government, Healthcare, Science & Nature by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Elephants and other large animals have a lower incidence of cancer than would be expected statistically, suggesting that they have evolved ways to protect themselves against the disease. A new study reveals how elephants do it: An old gene that was no longer functional was recycled from the vast “genome junkyard” to increase the sensitivity of elephant cells to DNA damage, enabling them to cull potentially cancerous cells early. In multicellular animals, cells go through many cycles of growth and division. At each division, cells copy their entire genome, and inevitably a few mistakes creep in. Some of those mutations can lead to cancer. One might think that animals with larger bodies and longe... Read More
