Since the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) came into force in 1970, banks and other financial institutions have been subject to extensive reporting requirements on the transactions they perform on customers ’ behalf. In subsequent years, notably after 9/11 with passage of the USA PATRIOT Act, Congress has expanded the range of firms subject to these rules and the information that they must collect. In the nearly half-century since the BSA’s passage, so-called anti-money laundering/ know your custom er (AML/ KYC) reporting duties have also expanded fortuitously, as the dollar thresholds – typically, $5,000 or $10,00...

Abstract Emergence of drug resistance has created unmet medical need for the development of new classes of antibiotics. Discovery of new antibacterial agents with new mode of action remains a high priority universally. 4(3H)-quinazolinone, a fused nitrogen heterocyclic compound has emerged as a biologically privileged structure, possessing a wide range of biological properties viz. anticancer, antibacterial, antitubercular, antifungal, anti-HIV, anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities. Promising antibacterial properties of quinazolinones have enthused the medicinal chemists to explore and develo...

The objective of this study was to establish structure-activity relationships (SARs) for new Flex-Het derivatives, which were previously inaccessible due to the limited availability of aryl isothiocyanate precursors. The current work developed a synthesis of isothiocyanate 13 and used it to prepare 14 diverse thiourea analogs of the lead compound SHetA2 (1, NSC-721689) from a range of commercial amines. Additionally, five new ureas were prepared along with nine N-benzylthioureas, five derivatives incorporating hydrazine or hydrazide linkers and four desmethyl compounds. Potencies and efficacies were determined for each der...

ing Bats are known to harbor and transmit many emerging and re-emerging viruses, many of which are extremely pathogenic in humans but do not cause overt pathology in their bat reservoir hosts: henipaviruses (Nipah and Hendra), filoviruses (Ebola and Marburg), and coronaviruses (SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV). Direct transmission cycles are often implicated in these outbreaks, with virus shed in bat feces, urine, and saliva. An additional mode of virus transmission between bats and humans requiring further exploration is the spread of disease via arthropod vectors. Despite the shared ecological niches that bats fill with many h...

ng Zhou During the past two decades, three zoonotic coronaviruses have been identified as the cause of large-scale disease outbreaks–Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and Swine Acute Diarrhea Syndrome (SADS). SARS and MERS emerged in 2003 and 2012, respectively, and caused a worldwide pandemic that claimed thousands of human lives, while SADS struck the swine industry in 2017. They have common characteristics, such as they are all highly pathogenic to humans or livestock, their agents originated from bats, and two of them originated in China. Thus, it is highly...

Government databases full of sensitive personal information pose a growing threat. When the government amasses tax returns, banking transaction data, health records,voter information, and other items, it exposes us to dangers from hacking and leaking. Experience shows that federal employees are sometimes —maybe often—sloppy, politically biased, self-interested, and vulnerable to bribery.TheDaily Caller summarizes an apparent leak by an employee of the IRS, an agency whichis an ideal target for hackers and leakers. The article has to do with the tawdry Cohen affair, but it shows the ease with which a single bure...

The Journal of Adult Protection,Volume 21, Issue 1, Page 46-64, March 2019. Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine safeguarding adults reviews (SARs) that refer to mental health legislation in order to contribute to the review of English mental health law (2018). Design/methodology/approach Searches of a variety of sources were conducted to compile a list of relevant SARs. These are summarised and their contexts assessed for what they reveal about the use and coherence of mental health legislation. Findings The interaction of the statutes under consideration, in particular the Mental Health Act (MHA) 1983, the Men...
