Cilium Likened to GPS

first_imgA story on Science Daily says that the primary cilium, a protrusion on most human cells that looks like an antenna, acts like a GPS system.  They “orient cells to move in the right direction and at the speed needed to heal wounds, much like a Global Positioning System helps ships navigate to their destinations.”    Not only that, says Soren T. Christensen (U of Copenhagen): “What we are dealing with is a physiological analogy to the GPS system with a coupled autopilot that coordinates air traffic or tankers on open sea.”  What happens is that the ciliar antennae act like beacons for an essential clotting factor.  They orient themselves to steer fibroblast cells to the wound site, promoting repair.  “The really important discovery is that the primary cilium detects signals, which tell the cells to engage their compass reading and move in the right direction to close the wound.”    This exciting discovery falsifies an old evolutionary canard.  “Protruding through the cell membrane, primary cilia occur on almost every non-dividing cell in the body,” the article ended.  “Once written off as a vestigial organelle discarded in the evolutionary dust, primary cilia in the last decade have risen to prominence as a vital cellular sensor at the root of a wide range of health disorders, from polycystic kidney disease to cancer to left-right anatomical abnormalities.”Great!  Another wonderful design-based discovery to beat down the Darwinists for their science-stopping assumptions.  Let’s pile these up for Darwin Day.  What a show it will be: Charlie will get boos, hisses and rotten tomatoes, while crowds gather at the ID show to see who gets gets Nobel Prizes and Breakthroughs of the Year (12/19/2008).Project:  Browse through our 2008 stories for all the examples of Darwinism being an impediment to scientific progress, then list them after a quote by Eugenie Scott claiming that creationism is a science-stopper.  Then list all the major discoveries stemming from the search for design.  Your only challenge will be having too much material.(Visited 21 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

11-million jobs: Zuma calls for teamwork

first_imgSouth Africa’s National Development Plan has set the ambitious target of creating 11-million jobs by 2030, which will require teamwork to get the economy growing at a rate of more than 5% a year, says President Jacob Zuma.Delivering his State of the Nation Address to a joint sitting of Parliament in Cape Town on Thursday, Zuma said South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth was expected to average 2.5% in 2013, down from 3.1% the previous year – and half the minimum 5% growth rate required to create 11-million jobs by 2030.“In my last meeting with the business community, the sector indicated that for the economy to grow threefold, we must remove certain obstacles.“We will engage business, labour and other social partners in pursuit of solutions. No single force acting individually can achieve the objectives we have set for ourselves.”Zuma said the National Development Plan (NDP), the country’s vision for the next 20 years, contained proposals for tackling the problems of poverty, inequality and unemployment, while outlining interventions to put the economy on a better footing.Youth unemploymentNoting that just over a third of the population was under the age of 15, Zuma said that South Africa, like many other countries, was faced with a crisis of youth unemployment.“Last May I asked constituencies at Nedlac to discuss youth employment incentives. I am pleased that discussions have been concluded and that agreement has been reached on key principles. The parties will sign the accord later this month,” Zuma said.These incentives would add to what the government was already doing to empower young South Africans, Zuma said, noting that state-owned companies provided apprenticeships and learnerships and urging that these be increased.Appeal to the private sectorZuma also appealed to the private sector “to absorb 11 000 FET [Further Education and Training college] graduates who are awaiting placements” – equivalent to the number of young people that the government had enrolled in various training programmes under its National Rural Youth Services Corps.The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform, which runs this Corps, was also planning to create nine Rural Youth Hubs per province, including in the 23 poorest districts in the country.“We will also use the Expanded Public Works Programme and the Community Work programme to absorb young people,” Zuma said, adding: “Working together we will find a solution to youth unemployment.”Regarding small business – recognised as key for job creation in the country – Zuma said a key project for the Presidency currently was to get government departments to pay small businesses within 30 days.“Departments are required to submit monthly reports so that we can monitor progress in this regard,” Zuma said, adding: “We have taken a decision that accounting officers who fail to execute this directive should face consequences.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Credit Cards: Friend or Foe?

first_imgBy Emilie Papageorgiou, AFCPE-FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship InternCredit cards can wreak havoc on financial security when used irresponsibly, but when used properly, also can have many benefits! It is important for all consumers, including military families, to consider the advantages and disadvantages of credit cards before taking the plunge. Credit cards can help build a credit history, protect some purchases, and provide a backup plan when emergencies arrive. However, if cardholders are not careful, credit cards can also blow the family budget, causing unwanted debt and causing purchases to cost more due to high interest rates.The best way to reap the benefits of credit cards is to pay off the balance each month and avoid costly fees and interest. When cardholders are unable to pay off the balance in full, they should pay as much as their budget allows over the minimum payment. This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on September 6, 2013.last_img read more

Touch Football Represented At Sports Women’s Ball

first_imgOver 100 people attended the Ball, including Minister for Sport, Senator Kate Lundy as well as several other politicians. 2011 World Cup Australian Women’s Open assistant coach, Dean Russell, was part of a panel interviewed by MC Stephanie Brantz and joined Australian Opals squad members Liz Cambage, Carly Wilson and Marianna Tolo, Opals coach, Carrie Graf and Capital Football Chief Executive, Heather Reid on stage. Russell told the crowd about Australia’s impressive record at the Women’s Open level, having never lost a game at World Cup level as well as the amount of females taking part in Touch Football across Australia. “The international program for Touch Football started back in 1985 for women. It’s been an extremely successful program. We are extremely proud of the results we’ve produced on the field and the athletes we’ve produced off it,” Russell said. “We do have a lot of females playing (Touch Football) but we are probably lucky in the sense that we have a category at social level and domestic that is very popular which is Mixed Touch. A lot of families get together and play with their Mums and Dads and sons and daughters which introduces them into the sport and then they can see the pathways that develop through regional, club, state and international level.”Recently named as the Federal Minister for Sport, Senator Lundy spoke about her passion for sport and in particular women’s sport. “I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to be here tonight, I’m so privileged and honoured to have this portfolio. It’s something that is a part of me, my love for sport. It has always been a big part of my life and part of my family’s life,” Senator Lundy said. “Tonight we are particularly acknowledging the role that so many women have played in our sporting landscape. As Senator for the ACT I am incredibly proud of the local women in sport and the Canberra community’s wonderful response to the successes, their support when they are not going so well and most of all drawing from the participation base in the community that finds itself again and again inspired by the performance of our elite female athletes.”“The Government is committed to supporting women in sport and despite all the work that has been done, we recognise that more must be done to bring women’s sport to its rightful place in this country.”Chief Executive Officer of Sports Hydrant, Andy Turnbull, told the crowd that the promotion of elite women’s sport through the event was just one of the Sport For Women initiatives that the organisation drives. “Sports Hydrant, through the Sport For Women website, seeks to increase participation through we believe redefining the definition of sport. We want sport to be an integral part of the sporting landscape by including dance, individual fitness initiatives and not actually separating sport and recreation from leisure,” Turnbull said.
