3 Ways the United Nations Is Helping the World (and 2 Ways It Can ’t)
Former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold once remarked that the UN “was created not to lead mankind to heaven but to save humanity from hell.” Put another (less poetic) way, the UN is better at helping the world cope with crises than at preventing or ending them. This week’s UN General Assembly has confirmed as much; here, five global challenges the UN can, and can’t solve: 1. North Korea Let’s begin with something the UN can do very little to resolve: the North Korea standoff. There are three reasons for that. First, the “carrot” the UN wields—the lifting of economic sa...

Hamas Takes a Step Away from Isolation, With a Long Way Left to Go
In the decade since the militant group Hamas waged civil war with its rival Fatah political party, the stateless Palestinians have been left without a unified voice on the world stage. Now, that might be about to change. Over the weekend Hamas took a step toward unity by agreeing to elections in Gaza and the West Bank, raising the prospect of reunification after ten years of squabbling and violence. Few think the political split is over for good, but Hamas’ move reflects a desire by the group to come in from the cold — and creates a chance to ease the plight of the 1.8 million Palestinians living under an Israe...

President Trump ’s Pick for Russian Ambassador: ‘No Question’ Moscow Interfered in Election
(WASHINGTON) — Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, President Donald Trump’s nominee to be U.S. ambassador to Russia, told Congress on Tuesday that Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election led directly to the lack of trust between the two former Cold War foes. Appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Huntsman struck a tough tone amid heightened tensions between Washington and Moscow. The relationship has been marred in recent months by a series of expulsions of diplomats and closures of diplomatic missions. “There is no question that the Russian government interfered in the U.S....

TALK-1 channels control {beta} cell endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ homeostasis
Ca2+ handling by the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) serves critical roles in controlling pancreatic β cell function and becomes perturbed during the pathogenesis of diabetes. ER Ca2+ homeostasis is determined by ion movements across the ER membrane, including K+ flux through K+ channels. We demonstrated that K+ flux through ER-localized TALK-1 channels facilitated Ca2+ release from the ER in mouse and human β cells. We found that β cells from mice lacking TALK-1 exhibited reduced basal cytosolic Ca2+ and increased ER Ca2+ concentrations, suggesting reduced ER Ca2+ leak. These changes in Ca2+ homeostasis were pre...

Michael Flynn Failed to Disclose Middle East Trip on Security Clearance Form, Democrats Say

Why Paul Ryan Has the Toughest Job in Washington
By any rights, Paul Ryan should be at the peak of his game. He’s the Speaker of the House at a time when Republicans control both chambers of Congress and the White House, and this fall he has the opportunity to spearhead the first reform of the tax code in three decades, an issue he’s long promoted. But things aren’t quite working out that way. In recent weeks, Ryan has faced criticism from House conservatives even as he was undercut by President Trump on a deal with Democrats to extend the debt ceiling—on the same day he called the idea “ridiculous.” Now, there are reports that some c...

Wild emmer genome architecture and diversity elucidate wheat evolution and domestication
We report a 10.1-gigabase assembly of the 14 chromosomes of wild tetraploid wheat, as well as analyses of gene content, genome architecture, and genetic diversity. With this fully assembled polyploid wheat genome, we identified the causal mutations in Brittle Rachis 1 (TtBtr1) genes controlling shattering, a key domestication trait. A study of genomic diversity among wild and domesticated accessions revealed genomic regions bearing the signature of selection under domestication. This reference assembly will serve as a resource for accelerating the genome-assisted improvement of modern wheat varieties. (Source: ScienceNOW)
