At some point I fight back, and it won't be pretty: Donald Trump tells John McCain 17.10.2017 DNA: Money
President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a warning shot after Republican Senator John McCain questioned "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in America's foreign policy. Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington that "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back." The president added "I'm being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won't be pretty." McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5 years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: "I have faced tougher adversaries." In Philadelphia last night, the six-term Republican senator from Arizona received an award for a lifetime of service and sacrifice to the country. In addition to recalling his more than two decades of military service and his imprisonment during the war, McCain took a moment to go a step further than the night's other speakers, who lamented what many described as a fractured political climate. "To abandon the ideals we have advanced ...

Almost half of B'lureans are passive smokers, says survey 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
The number of passive smokers and their health problems in India have risen by almost 50%, says a survey conducted by the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS). In Bengaluru, almost half of the people are passive smokers. Passive smoking is more dangerous than active smoking, according to Dr Triveni B S, a public health specialist. In order to know more about the effects of the problem, she explained the case of Nalini, a long-time victim of passive smoking. Nalini lost her voice to vocal chord cancer about six years ago. Nalini's husband was a regular smoker, which eventually took his life. But that was not the end of it. Since she lived under the same roof, she was a constant passive smoker and eventually suffered from vocal cord cancer. Although constant medical treatment cured her of cancer, she did not get her voice back. Now, she is fighting against passive smoking and is creating awareness about its ill effects. According to Triveni, passive smoking is worse than active smoking since here the smoke ...

The key processes involved in cancer cell mobility 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Biology is no longer restricted to studying living organisms in the wild, or working with cells in the confines of a lab. Interdisciplinary influences from fields like mathematics, physics, chemistry and statistics on biology are increasing by the day in relentless attempts to comprehend the complexity of life. Bioinformatics is a result of one such effort, where computational approaches are used to solve problems that are practically either impossible to resolve or are highly time-consuming to pursue. Bioinformatics provides analytical solutions in the form of computer programs that trained researchers can use to interpret data. With an increasing understanding of the subject and use of interdisciplinary approaches, are we now better equipped to fight near-fatal diseases like cancer? Every day, numerous research labs are generating massive bodies of knowledge in the form of research data and publications that have helped us understand the different tenets of this disease like never before. How, then, ...

Ancient viruses buried in our DNA 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
In July, scientists reported that a strange protein courses through the veins of pregnant women. No one is sure what it's there for. What makes this protein, called Hemo, so unusual is that it is not made by the mother. Instead, it is made in her fetus and in the placenta, by a gene that originally came from a virus that infected our mammalian ancestors more than 100 million years ago. Hemo is not the only protein with such an alien origin: our DNA contains roughly 1,00,000 pieces of viral DNA. Altogether, they make up about 8% of the human genome. And scientists are only starting to figure out what this viral DNA is doing to us. Aris Katzourakis, a virologist at the University of Oxford, and his colleagues recently published a commentary in the journal Trends in Microbiology in which they explored the possibility that viral genes that produce proteins like Hemo are affecting our health in a variety of unexpected ways. Some of our ancient viruses may be protecting us from disease; others may be raising ...
