Nono the Carbon Footprint Bear —Part of Peru ’ s Ambitious Work on Climate Action
By Kirla Echegaray AlfaroLIMA, Peru, Sep 21 2020 (IPS) On the eve of its bicentennial, Peru is addressing climate change with the needed sense of urgency and ambition. Our inclusive, ‘whole society’ approach aims to awaken new opportunities that are within reach of all of our citizens. Like COVID-19, climate change is a landmark which will have a clearly established before and after period. Without a doubt, it is paving a path towards sustainable development that will improve the well-being of all Peruvians. In this context, Carbon Footprint Peru is a government-led initiative aimed to recognize the efforts of public ...

In conversation with Dave Sivers
In this week’s conversation, Dave Sivers and I are chatting about all things character, backstories and senses. Dave first joined me on the Thursday Throng back 2013 with his first book in the Archer and Baines series The Scars Beneath the Soul. Dave started out writing hybrid crime fantasy novels which he describes as rather like Raymond Chandler meets JRR Tolkein, before moving onto contemporary crime with th Archer and Baines series. Although the first book The Scars Beneath the Soul was modestly successful, it was the sequel to the first book, Dead in Deep Water that really took off in the genre Serial Killers wh...

Structure-based design of prefusion-stabilized SARS-CoV-2 spikes
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has led to accelerated efforts to develop therapeutics and vaccines. A key target of these efforts is the spike (S) protein, which is metastable and difficult to produce recombinantly. We characterized 100 structure-guided spike designs and identified 26 individual substitutions that increased protein yields and stability. Testing combinations of beneficial substitutions resulted in the identification of HexaPro, a variant with six beneficial proline substitutions exhibiting higher expression than its parental construct (by a factor of 10) as well as the ability to withstand...

It is what largely guides the policy direction of government and implementation plans of development partners. Data determines what investments will be made in particular areas, and highlights where the need is greater for a specific intervention. When policies are being implemented, data is used to track progress to see if the desired results are being achieved, and where changes

Real neurons are noisy. Can neural implants figure that out?
(Duke University) Signals sent from the retina to the brain have a lot of background noise, yet we see the world clearly. Duke researchers show that to achieve visual clarity the brain must accurately measure how this noise is distributed across neurons when processing the signals sent down the optic nerve. These results are likely to shape the design of future retinal prosthetics and other brain-machine interfaces.
