NFL Owners Should Stand Up to Donald Trump on National Anthem Protests
With his threat at the United Nations this past week to “totally destroy” North Korea if necessary, and his labeling of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as a “Rocket Man” on a “suicide mission,” President Donald Trump escalated his war of words with a country flirting with a nuclear strike. Few world leaders at the General Assembly cheered him. On Friday, Trump got his applause — by hurling his “tough” talk at America’s de facto national pastime, NFL football. At a rally in Huntsville, Ala., in support of Republican Senator Luther Strange, Trump cursed some of its ...

This Is the Best Way to Recover From Failure
Embracing the sting of failure may not sound enjoyable — but new research shows it’s the best way to learn from mistakes. A study in the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making found that people who ruminated on their emotions about failure were likely to try harder to correct their mistakes than those who made excuses or didn’t let their failures bring them down. This notion of feeling the pain in order to progress may be counterintuitive to those who believe in shaking off failures. But it’s actually motivating to learn how bad it feels to fail, according to study co-author Selin Malkoc, a marketing...

The nitty-gritty behind how onions make you cry
(American Chemical Society) Adding onions to a recipe can make a meal taste rich and savory, but cutting up the onion can be brutal.   Onions release a compound called lachrymatory factor (LF), which makes the eyes sting and water. Scientists know that a certain enzyme causes this irritating compound to form but precisely how it helps LF form in the onion remained an open question. Now, one group reports in ACS Chemical Biology that they have the answer. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

STING is an essential mediator of the Ku70-mediated production of IFN-{lambda}1 in response to exogenous DNA
We previously identified Ku70, a subunit of a DNA repair protein complex, as a cytosolic DNA sensor that induces the production of interferon-1 (IFN-1) by human primary cells and cell lines. IFN-1 is a type III IFN and has similar antiviral activity to that of the type I IFNs (IFN-α and IFN-β). We observed that human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293T cells, which are deficient in the innate immune adaptor protein STING (stimulator of IFN genes), did not produce IFN-1 in response to DNA unless they were reconstituted with STING. Conversely, parental HEK 293 cells produced IFN-1 after they were exposed to exogenous DNA;...
