Vibrio parahaemolyticus infections in the United States, 1973-1998. (1/67)

Vibrio parahaemolyticus infections are associated with consumption of raw or undercooked shellfish, contaminated food, and exposure of wounds to warm seawater. Foodborne outbreaks and sporadic infections from Vibrio species in 4 Gulf Coast states are reported routinely to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Between 1988 and 1997, 345 sporadic V. parahaemolyticus infections were reported: 59% were gastroenteritis, 34% were wound infections, 5% were septicemia, and 2% were from other exposures. Forty-five percent of patients suffering from these conditions were hospitalized for their infections, and 88% of persons with acute gastroenteritis reported having eaten raw oysters during the week before their illness occurred. Between 1973 and 1998, 40 outbreaks of V. parahaemolyticus infections were reported to the CDC, and these outbreaks included >1000 illnesses. Most of these outbreaks occurred during the warmer months and were attributed to seafood, particularly shellfish. The median attack rate among persons who consumed the implicated seafood was 56%. To prevent V. parahaemolyticus infections, persons should avoid consumption of raw or undercooked shellfish and exposure of wounds to seawater.  (+info)

A clinical and pathological study of motor neurone disease on Guam. (2/67)

Despite over 40 years of intensive study, the cause of the high incidence of motor neurone disease (MND) on Guam, and the relationship between this disease and MND seen in the rest of the world are still uncertain. We present a series of 45 cases of Guamanian MND, which reaffirm the clinical similarity between this disease and MND seen in other countries. However, the occurrence of MND among the indigenous Chamorros of Guam is distinguished by four factors: (i) high prevalence; (ii) frequent familial occurrence; (iii) co-occurrence with the parkinsonism-dementia complex (PDC); and (iv) association with an unusual and distinctive linear retinopathy termed Guam retinal pigment epitheliopathy (GRPE). These distinguishing factors were not present in four non-Chamorros who resided on Guam when their MND symptoms occurred. Pathologically, the classical features of MND were seen in Guamanian Chamorro cases including ubiquitin inclusions. Neurofibrillary tangles were frequently seen. The neurofibrillary tangles appeared in the same distribution as described in the PDC but, unlike classical PDC, they were not usually associated with cell loss and occurred less frequently. While neurofibrillary tangle formation and the clinicopathological syndrome of MND may occur in parallel, observations from this series suggest that pathologically classical MND on Guam may occur independently of neurofibrillary degeneration and the clinical features of PDC.  (+info)

Tau and alpha-synuclein pathology in amygdala of Parkinsonism-dementia complex patients of Guam. (3/67)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/parkinsonism-dementia complex (ALS/PDC) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder of Chamorro residents of Guam and the Mariana Islands, characterized by abundant neuron loss and tau neurofibrillary pathology similar to that observed in Alzheimer's disease (AD). A variety of neurodegenerative diseases with tau pathology including ALS/PDC also have alpha-synuclein positive pathology, primarily in the amygdala. We further characterized the tau and alpha-synuclein pathology in the amygdala of a large series of 30 Chamorros using immunohistochemical and biochemical techniques. Tau pathology was readily detected in both affected and unaffected Chamorros. In contrast, alpha-synuclein pathology was detected in 37% of patients with PDC but not detected in Chamorros without PDC or AD. The alpha-synuclein aggregates often co-localized within neurons harboring neurofibrillary tangles suggesting a possible interaction between the two proteins. Tau and alpha-synuclein pathology within the amygdala is biochemically similar to that observed in AD and synucleinopathies, respectively. Thus, the amygdala may be selectively vulnerable to developing both tau and alpha-synuclein pathology or tau pathology may predispose it to synuclein aggregation. Furthermore, in PDC, tau and alpha-synuclein pathology occurs independent of beta-amyloid deposition in amygdala thereby implicating the aggregation of these molecules in the severe neurodegeneration frequently observed in this location.  (+info)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and parkinsonism-dementia complex of Guam: changing incidence rates during the past 60 years. (4/67)

In the 1950s, the incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lytico) and parkinsonism-dementia complex (PDC, or Bodig) on the island of Guam was much higher than anywhere else in the world. From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the incidence of both disorders has decreased. The objective of the present study was to ascertain whether the decreasing incidence continued until the end of the century (1999). The average annual incidence of ALS and PDC was calculated for each 5-year period from 1940 to 1999, utilizing registration records of all ALS and PDC cases on Guam during that period. The results of this study confirmed that the incidence of ALS declined steadily during the past 40 years. The incidence of PDC also declined until the late 1980s but, unlike ALS, showed a slight increase from 1980 to 1999. The rapid decrease in incidence is not likely to be due to genetic factors. Instead, it is most likely to be the results of radical socioeconomic, ethnographic, and ecologic changes brought about by the rapid westernization of Guam.  (+info)

Biomagnification of cyanobacterial neurotoxins and neurodegenerative disease among the Chamorro people of Guam. (5/67)

We here report biomagnification (the increasing accumulation of bioactive, often deleterious molecules through higher trophic levels of a food chain) of the neurotoxic nonprotein amino acid beta-methylamino-l-alanine (BMAA) in the Guam ecosystem. Free-living cyanobacteria produce 0.3 microg/g BMAA, but produce 2-37 microg/g as symbionts in the coralloid roots of cycad trees. BMAA is concentrated in the developing reproductive tissues of the cycad Cycas micronesica, averaging 9 microg/g in the fleshy seed sarcotesta and a mean of 1,161 microg/g BMAA in the outermost seed layer. Flying foxes (Pteropus mariannus), which forage on the seeds, accumulate a mean of 3,556 microg/g BMAA. Flying foxes are a prized food item of the indigenous Chamorro people who boil them in coconut cream and eat them whole. Chamorros who die of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/parkinsonism-dementia complex (AL-SPDC), a neurodegenerative disease with symptoms similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, have an average of 6.6 microg/g BMAA in their brain tissues. The biomagnification of BMAA through the Guam ecosystem fits a classic triangle of increasing concentrations of toxic compounds up the food chain. This may explain why the incidence of ALS-PDC among the Chamorro was 50-100 times the incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis elsewhere. Biomagnification of cyanobacterial BMAA may not be unique to Guam; our discovery of BMAA in the brain tissue from Alzheimer's patients from Canada suggests alternative ecological pathways for the bioaccumulation of BMAA in aquatic or terrestrial ecosystems.  (+info)

Morphological, chemical, and genetic diversity of tropical marine cyanobacteria Lyngbya spp. and Symploca spp. (Oscillatoriales). (6/67)

Although diverse natural products have been isolated from the benthic, filamentous cyanobacterium Lyngbya majuscula, it is unclear whether this chemical variation can be used to establish taxonomic relationships among disparate collections. We compared morphological characteristics, secondary-metabolite compositions, and partial 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences among several collections of L. majuscula Gomont, Lyngbya spp., and Symploca spp. from Guam and the Republic of Palau. The morphological characteristics examined were cell length, cell width, and the presence or absence of a calyptra. Secondary metabolites were analyzed by two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography. Each collection possessed a distinct cellular morphology that readily distinguished Lyngbya spp. from Symploca spp. Each collection yielded a unique chemotype, but common chemical characteristics were shared among four collections of L. majuscula. A phylogeny based on secondary-metabolite composition supported the reciprocal monophyly of Lyngbya and Symploca but yielded a basal polytomy for Lyngbya. Pairwise sequence divergence among species ranged from 10 to 14% across 605 bp of 16S rDNA, while collections of L. majuscula showed 0 to 1.3% divergence. Although the phylogeny of 16S rDNA sequences strongly supported the reciprocal monophyly of Lyngbya and Symploca as well as the monophyly of Lyngbya bouillonii and L. majuscula, genetic divergence was not correlated with chemical and morphological differences. These data suggest that 16S rDNA sequence analyses do not predict chemical variability among Lyngbya species. Other mechanisms, including higher rates of evolution for biosynthetic genes, horizontal gene transfer, and interactions between different genotypes and environmental conditions, may play important roles in generating qualitative and quantitative chemical variation within and among Lyngbya species.  (+info)

Asian/Pacific Islander adolescent sexual orientation and suicide risk in Guam. (7/67)

OBJECTIVES: We examined the effects of same-sex orientation on suicide risks for Guam's Asian/Pacific Islander adolescents. METHODS: We used a probability sample and logistic regression analysis to identify suicide risk factors. RESULTS: Same-sex orientation was associated with a greater risk of suicide attempt, especially for boys. Adolescents who reported suffering physical abuse in the context of a romantic relationship, engaging in binge drinking, and experiencing feelings of hopelessness were at greater risk for suicidal ideation and attempts. Race/ethnicity was associated with suicide risk for both boys and girls, and patterns suggest that membership in the same racial/ethnic group decreased suicide risk for girls and increased risk of suicide for boys. CONCLUSIONS: Gay, lesbian, and bisexual Asian/Pacific Islander adolescents in Guam deserve intervention and counseling programs to reduce suicide risk.  (+info)

A mechanism for slow release of biomagnified cyanobacterial neurotoxins and neurodegenerative disease in Guam. (8/67)

As root symbionts of cycad trees, cyanobacteria of the genus Nostoc produce beta-methylamino-l-alanine (BMAA), a neurotoxic nonprotein amino acid. The biomagnification of BMAA through the Guam ecosystem fits a classic triangle of increasing concentrations of toxic compounds up the food chain. However, because BMAA is polar and nonlipophilic, a mechanism for its biomagnification through increasing trophic levels has been unclear. We report that BMAA occurs not only as a free amino acid in the Guam ecosystem but also can be released from a bound form by acid hydrolysis. After first removing free amino acids from tissue samples of various trophic levels (cyanobacteria, root symbioses, cycad seeds, cycad flour, flying foxes eaten by the Chamorro people, and brain tissues of Chamorros who died from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/Parkinsonism dementia complex), we then hydrolyzed the remaining fraction and found BMAA concentrations increased 10- to 240-fold. This bound form of BMAA may function as an endogenous neurotoxic reservoir, accumulating and being transported between trophic levels and subsequently being released during digestion and protein metabolism. Within brain tissues, the endogenous neurotoxic reservoir can slowly release free BMAA, thereby causing incipient and recurrent neurological damage over years or even decades, which may explain the observed long latency period for neurological disease onset among the Chamorro people. The presence of BMAA in brain tissues from Canadian patients who died of Alzheimer's disease suggests that exposure to cyanobacterial neurotoxins occurs outside of Guam.  (+info)

Population outbreaks of the corallivorous crown-of-thorns seastar (COTS), Acanthaster planci L., are among the most important biological disturbances of tropical coral reefs. Over the past 50 years, several devastating outbreaks have been documented around Guam, an island in the western Pacific Ocean. Previous analyses have shown that in the Pacific Ocean, COTS larval dispersal may be geographically restricted to certain regions. Here, we assess the genetic structure of Pacific COTS populations and compared samples from around Guam with a number of distant localities in the Pacific Ocean, and focused on determining the degree of genetic structure among populations previously considered to be isolated. Using microsatellites, we document substantial genetic structure between 14 localities from different geographical regions in the Pacific Ocean. Populations from the 14 locations sampled were found to be structured in three significantly differentiated groups: (1) all locations immediately around Guam,

According to Resolution 255-34, "federal recognition of the native Chamorros as an Indian tribe would allow the Chamorro people to incorporate Chamorro Land Trust lands as tribal land to the benefit of the native Chamorro population.". The resolution comes after a recent lawsuit, in which the U.S. government sued the government of Guam and the Chamorro Land Trust Commission for allegedly violating the Fair Housing Act.. Chamorro Land Trust benefits Guams indigenous people, who can apply for residential and agriculture leases of properties held by the Land Trust. The commission also leases some of the land for commercial use to non-natives as a source of revenue.. "The Chamorro people have been ...

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has given its worst rating to the DOD Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) regarding the proposed build-up. The EPA emphasizes the lack of a specific plan to address the wastewater treatment and water supply needs of the increased population, which will overstretch the already inadequate infrastructure and may result in "significant adverse public health impacts." Low water pressure could lead to increased exposure to water borne disease from sewage stormwater infiltration into drinking water. Also, it could result in saltwater intrusion into Guams aquifer. The planned expansion will result in an increase in spills of raw sewage, exposing people to raw sewage in their drinking water supply, through the shellfish they eat, and during ocean recreation. Moreover, the EPA report argues that the build-up "will result in unacceptable impacts to 71 acres of high quality coral reef ecosystem in Apra harbor" and concludes that, "These impacts are of ...
Guam had (and still has some) very attractive reasons for obtaining an uncontested divorce there - reasons that make (or made) it a likely candidate for the title "divorce mill" - a title branded by many of its own politicians in a successful attempt to change the law.. Because Guam is a territory of the United States, its courts are United States jurisdictional courts and the divorces it issues are valid in all of the states in the U.S. Prior to January 1, 2006, Guam allowed for an uncontested divorce without either spouse visiting the territory at all - one of the few places if not the only that allowed this. After being charged as a "divorce mill", an agreement was made by the politicians of the territory with the lawyers and other lobbyists who did not want to change the law, to require a seven-day stay in Guam (as opposed to the much longer ones proposed by the legislators) to obtain a divorce. Guam allows for "irreconcilable differences" as a cause for divorce, and Guam is much quicker to ...
Six US planes - including a "nuclear sniffer" and two Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers - took part in the military exercise on Tuesday night.. After US B-1B jets buzzed North Korea and practiced a bombing run, Pyongyang responded by saying Kim Jong Un may finally decide to launch missiles towards Guam.. "We have already warned on several occasions to take self-defense measures, including a salvo of missiles in waters close to the USA territory of Guam", says a commentary from the North Korean agency KCNA, which accuses Washington of "doing constant military maneuvers and actions in sensitive areas "near the Korean peninsula".. "The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure".. Although both South Korea and the United States insist next weeks drill is defensive in nature, North Korea considers such war games rehearsals for invasion. USA and South Korean warplanes also ...
This is an attempt on North Koreas part to ratchet things up, but I think the diplomatic channels that President Trump talked about are the ones that were hoping, along with sanctions, that will work and not a war".. Mr Trump agrees, saying "They should have had me in years ago. frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents". "I wanted to call you and say hello, how are you?". "Mr. President, as the governor of Guam.and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe or confident with you at the helm", Gov.

Populations from the Kii peninsula of Japan and Guam present a high incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and parkinsonism-dementia complex. It is thought that the low levels of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) in the drinking water are involved in the pathogenesis of these diseases. The present study aimed to test the hypothesis that catalepsy, a behavioral immobility and one of the Parkinsonian symptoms, may result from functionally impaired dopaminergic neurons in low Ca and Mg (LCa/Mg) fed mice. A group of mice fed with an LCa/Mg diet for 6 weeks was compared to a control group on a standard diet. Cataleptic symptoms such as akinesia and rigidity were measured using the bar test. The antiparkinsonian drugs dopamine (DA) precursor L-3, 4-dihydroxy phenylamine (L-DOPA), the selective DA receptor D2 agonist bromocriptine and the DA releaser amantadine were tested for their effects on the induced catalepsy. Mice developped catalepsy after 3 weeks on the LCa/Mg diet. LCa/Mg diet-induced catalepsy was
The story basically, is about the Quinata family, who started to collect and display these amazing trains and miniature Christmas town at The Friar on Guam. They would do this yearly, to help raise funds for the Capuchin Priests on island. As years past, the families collections grew and they would hold these displays for free to the whole island, and donations were always welcome. They would even have light refreshments for the visitors who would come to enjoy the display as they placed their donations in a box beside the exit. Though the family doesnt always do this yearly nowadays, when they do have it, many Locals and tourists flock to see it, if they know about it ...

To do this, Kim will focus on coral samples from the coastal areas of Guam, a small Pacific island that during the next four years will experience a population increase of 20 percent as the U.S. military relocates Marines from Okinawa, Japan to Guam. Guam already has poor waste water infrastructure, and the influx of military personnel will further strain the islands resources. For Kim, the transition presents a unique opportunity to observe and document, in real time, the impact of increased sewage-derived nitrogen on the health of the coral reefs. He has already collected some baseline data in Guam, thanks to a small grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.. The Marines translocation has recently slowed a bit, partially because of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.. "This means that we will have time to collect more comprehensive baseline data," said Kim, who will return to Guam this summer to perform another set of sample and data collections with his colleague at ...
Western Pacific amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and parkinsonism-dementia complex, a disappearing neurodegenerative disease linked to use of the neurotoxic cycad plant for food and/or medicine, is intensively studied because the neuropathology (tauopathy) is similar to that of Alzheimers disease. Cycads contain neurotoxic and genotoxic principles, notably cycasin and methylazoxymethanol, the latter sharing chemical relations with nitrosamines, which are derived from nitrates and nitrites in preserved meats and fertilizers, and also used in the rubber and leather industries. This review includes new data that influence understanding of the neurobiological actions of cycad and related genotoxins and the putative mechanisms by which they might trigger neurodegenerative disease.

As far back as 2013 the DPRK threatened Guam after B52s out of Andersen Air Force base flew near the North Korean border saying "the KPA strategic rocket force has already been on a-class alert to wipe out the U.S. Forces and reduce their bases in Guam and other regions to ashes." adding, "The KPA air force is put on alert".. Guam is about 2,100 miles (3,380 kilometers) southeast of Pyongyang and 3,800 miles (6,115 kilometers) west of Honolulu in the Pacific Ocean. The unit replaces the 9th squadron from Dyess Air Force Base in Texas.. The KPA spokesman said the Minuteman ICBM test-launch and the mobilization of "nuclear strategic bombers" from Guam indicated that the USA was "driving the regional situation to an extreme pitch".. The news comes after the state-run North Korean news agency reported yesterday that Pyongyang was "carefully examining" a missile strike on the USA territory. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he doesnt believe there is "any imminent threat" from North Korea, ...

One of three suspects in a large federal drug case, which allegedly smuggled methamphetamine to Guam hidden in a box of teddy bears, has confessed to her crimes in a plea agreement.. Monica Leasiolagi has offered to plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine, or "ice," according to District Court of Guam documents.. Her co-defendants, Martha Burgos and John Michael Pangelinan, havent signed any plea agreements and are still facing trial.. In the plea agreement, Leasiolagi admits that she was one of the conspirators who hatched a plan to smuggle ice to Guam hidden in mail parcels. The conspiracy began in August, and lasted less than two months before a mail parcel was intercepted by federal authorities, the plea agreement states.. Authorities found the drugs hidden in a parcel with three stuffed bears, and the plea agreement notes that Burgos had previously alerted Leasiolagi she was having some "teddy bears" sent to Guam.. After the package was intercepted, ...

On relatively rare occasions, the Supreme Court will grant a petition for certiorari prepared and submitted by an individual who is not represented by an attorney. This Term presents the highly unusual circumstance in which the Court has agreed to hear two such cases in a single year. The first of those cases, Levin v. United States, will be argued on Tuesday. At issue is the relationship between two federal statutes - the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) and the Gonzalez Act - in the context of medical malpractice claims against the United States. Specifically, may a civilian bring a battery claim against the United States for injuries allegedly caused by military medical personnel during the performance of their duties, or are such claims barred by sovereign immunity?. Background. Steven Levin is a military veteran who was referred to the Ophthalmology Department of the U.S. Naval Hospital on Guam for treatment of a cataract.

A political action committee called Safer Arizona was set to file a marijuana legalization initiative with state officials Thursday. Arizona voters narrowly devoted a similar measure last year, but organizers say this one will have some differences, including requiring that people be at least 21 before they can buy it. They will have to gather 150,000 valid voter signatures by July to qualify for the 2018 ballot.. Guam Legalization Bill Gets Hearing. In a hearing Tuesday on a marijuana legalization measure, Bill 8-34, representatives of the judiciary said they took no position on the bill, but cautioned that implementing legalization would require a review of the island territorys entire criminal code.

Efforts to identify genetic factors which contribute to the disease have given mixed success. However, a advance publication to appear in PNAS is now reporting a point mutation in a calcium/magnesium channel in autopsy tissue from five patients out of 21 checked. The point mutation in TRPM7 removes a conserved phosphorylation site, and the mutant channel is thus more sensitive to magnesium inhibition. The authors propose that this channel mutation increases susceptibility to whatever environmental insult to result in the disease. The authors favor the magnesium dietary deficiency hypothesis, as it dovetails best with the defect seen in the mutant channel ...
Treatment: Anesthesia was induced with isoflurane delivered through a Norman elbow via 2.0 mm uncuffed endotracheal tube. To minimize the risk of managing a "downer" bird only one limb at a time was corrected. The surgical goal was to derotate the tibiotarsii and then attempt to straighten the toes post derotation using appropriate splinting materials and tape sandals. The right tibiotarsus was fractured at about the midshaft point by repeatedly drilling a 0.028" K wire through the diaphysis until the bone was weakened enough to be easily fractured. A three-pin, through-and-through Kirschner Ehmer apparatus was applied using 0.028" K wires. In addition, a single 0.028" K wire was placed intramedullary in the right tibiotarsus to provide better stability. Originally a four-pin through-and-throug KE was going to be applied, but the proximal pin would have interfered with normal mobility by protruding too far into the lateral abdomen, and so was eliminated from the repair. The intramedullary K wire ...

Trewick, 1997 The phylogenetic relationships of a number of flightless and volant rails have been investigated using mtDNA sequence data. The third domain of the small ribosomal subunit (12S) has been sequenced for 22 taxa, and part of the 5 end of the cytochrome-b gene has been sequenced for 12 taxa. Additional sequences were obtained from outgroup taxa, two species of jacana, sarus crane, spur-winged plover and kagu. Extinct rails were investigated using DNA extracted from subfossil bones, and in cases where fresh material could not be obtained from other extant taxa, feathers and museum skins were used as sources of DNA. Phylogenetic trees produced from these data have topologies that are, in general, consistent with data from DNA-DNA hybridization studies and recent interpretations based on morphology. Gallinula chloropus moorhen) groups basally with Fulica (coots), Amaurornis (= Megacrex) ineptus falls within the Gallirallus/Rallus group, and Gallinula (= Porphyrula) martinica is basal to ...

Monday, August 9, 1999; Page A07 When human beings arrived in North America about 30,000 years ago, they brought language, fire, flint tools and skin tents. They also brought something they didnt know they had--a tiny microbe called JC virus sequestered in their kidneys. Their descendants--or most of them, at least--long ago shucked off Stone Age technology. But JC virus is still with them. Researchers are now using the virus to bolster the hypothesis that American Indians are the distant offspring of those migrants, and that they came from eastern Asia on a land bridge across the Bering Strait. The strain of JC carried by modern-day Navajos, as it happens, is nearly identical to that carried by modern residents of Tokyo. Its somewhat different from the virus carried by the Chamorro, the aboriginal inhabitants of the South Pacific island of Guam. Its very different, however, from the virus carried by West Africans, East Africans and Europeans. All in all, the evidence suggests the Navajo and ...
Essex, in TG 58.2, now joined with TG 58.1 and TG 58.3 to constitute Task Force 58, the "Fast Carrier Task Force", launched an attack against Truk between 17 and 18 February 1944 during which eight Japanese ships were sunk. While en route to the Mariana Islands to sever Japanese supply lines, the carrier force was detected and received a prolonged aerial attack which it repelled successfully. It then continued with the scheduled attack upon Saipan, Tinian, and Guam on 23 February 1944.[1]. After this operation, Essex proceeded to San Francisco for her single wartime overhaul. Following her overhaul, Essex became the carrier for Air Group 15, the "Fabled Fifteen," commanded by the U.S. Navys top ace of the war, David McCampbell. She then joined carriers USS Wasp and USS San Jacinto in TG 12.1 to strike Marcus Island on 19 to 20 May 1944 and Wake on 23 May 1944.

High level contamination by natural and industrial sources of the alkali earth metal, barium (Ba) has been identified in the ecosystems/workplaces that are associated with high incidence clustering of multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurodegenerative diseases such as the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Analyses of ecosystems supporting the most renowned MS clusters in ... Massachusetts, Colorado, Guam, NE Scotland demonstrated consistently elevated levels of Ba in soils (mean: 1428 ppm) and vegetation (mean: 74 ppm) in relation to mean levels of 345 and 19 ppm recorded in MS-free regions adjoining. .... from the use of Ba as an atmospheric aerosol spray for enhancing/refracting the signalling of radio/radar waves along military jet flight paths, missile test ranges, etc. It is proposed that chronic contamination of the biosystem with the reactive types of Ba salts can initiate the pathogenesis of MS; due to the conjugation of Ba with ...
5 kids, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and Ill pass on the partridge in the pear tree for now, thanks (although Id take a pear tree.)

You may want to review the testimony for yourself, but my following brief highlights should give you the general idea of their good and not so good aspects. I look forward to getting the transcript for the entire hearing to see if they addressed any of the above concerns in their exchanges with our Representatives.. Dr. Cha opined that even though North Korea "is still years away from striking the U.S. homeland with a ballistic missile, we must accept now that 1) they threaten U.S. troops in Korea and Japan, and as far away as Guam and Hawaii; and 2) they are well on a path to field an ICBM force to reach the U.S." with a goal not just to produce a few bombs; "instead, it is a force of 100 or more nuclear-armed weapons, ranging from long-range strike to battlefield use that could be employed in a shooting war." To enhance our ability to live with these realities, he argues for diplomatic means and sanctions as the way the next president should deal with this "Number 1″ threat. He argued for ...
Sessions announcement came as full legalization went into effect in California, by far the largest state to have fully legalized trade in and/or recreational personal use of the botanical. Voters in Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington State and Washington DC have already approved similar measures. That brings the total population in the US living under state laws allowing the more or less free use of cannabis to more than 58 million. In addition, 29 states and three districts or territories (Guam, Puerto Rico and DC) have approved medicinal marijuana.. Whether Sessions announcement will significantly change the enforcement picture remains to be seen. The move aroused significant pushback from members of his own party. For example, GOP Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado tweeted that the decision had "​has trampled on the will of the voters.​"​ The Denver Post ​reported that Gardner has threatened to withhold support for Justice Department nominees until the policy dispute was resolved. Part ...

Burch is a paraplegic, paralyzed from the chest down, from an accident in Guam that he doesnt remember.. All he knows is that one minute, he was speaking with his sergeant in a hotel room, and then, its the next day, he is on the ground outside the hotel being rousted by an employee, and he cant move - not his hands, his arms or legs.. "They were trying to lift me up, get me to move. But that wasnt going to happen," Burch said.. Burch had sustained a fracture to his seventh cervical vertebrae - the lowest bone in his neck. At 21, the aircraft rescue and firefighting specialist had little use of his arms, none of his legs and an indeterminate prognosis for ...

U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced that USDAs Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has allocated $58.25 million from Section 10007 of the 2014 Farm Bill.

Celine Dion gave a heartwrenching performance of her hit song My Heart Will Go On at this years Billboard Music Awards . In her music , the belief in the redeeming power of love, be it romantic or quasi-spiritual, is unassailable. Guam is 3,400 km from North Korea.. That is a slap in the face for South Koreas new president, Moon Jae-in, who has promised greater engagement with the North, and suggests that the missile launch was an attempt to improve Pyongyangs negotiating position with a more hardline USA under President Donald Trump.. Leader Kim Jong-Uns ambition is to develop a nuclear weapon capable of striking the United States.. "We call upon the DPRK not to disregard existing opportunities for dialogue and to cease its behaviour which serves only to harm peace and security in the region", it said.. Pictures that have emerged online show the leader of the rogue nation happily watching over as North Korea launched the missile reportedly capable of carrying a "large scale heavy nuclear ...
Knutson at her first Junior team trip to Australia in 2008: Photo Courtesy of Knutson. "The more exhausted I made myself, the more successful I thought my swimming would be. There were days I could hardly carry my school backpack because I was so fatigued.". Adding fuel to the fire was that Knutson did actually improve considerably. It came to a head in 2008, her "break out" year. At the Short Course National Championships, she won gold in the 200 freestyle, 200 IM, 400 IM and silver in the 100 freestyle. She broke Olympian Katie Hoffs 400 IM American Record in the process. At the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Guam, she won seven gold medals and broke a 30-year-old National age group record. Knutson was the cream of the crop in the world of swimming. "2008 was remarkable for me," she said. "[It was] the last time that I [was] happy with swimming. After that, I became more obsessed with my bodys appearance, food, and just being good enough." Knutsons junior and senior years in high ...

We had the opportunity of teaching seiminary in Nett (Netch). What a sweet experience. Elder and Sister Kjar had to leave for Guam a couple of days early so we got to teach the seminary. We taught with Elder Davis and Elder Gasu. They took the first half of the lesson on Judges ( We are studying the Old Testament in Seminary and Institute) and did a great job and then I got to teach Ruth. I love the book of Ruth, so it was a sweet experience to teach a story from the scriptures that I love so much. Our Students in Nett are all ages, we have the regular teenagers (ages 12 - 18) and then a lot of the adults in the community come also. There comments when ask a question are so inspiring. I loved teaching Ruth because one of the lessons we learn from Ruth is how important it is we take care of each other, and expecially the ageing and widows. In Netts, these wonderful people live the book of Ruth everyday. They are always watching out for each other and taking care of each other. They also have all ...

The U.S. has five territories that are permanently inhabited: Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea; Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in the Marianas archipelago in the western North Pacific Ocean; and American Samoa in the South Pacific Ocean.. Approximately 4 million people in these territories are U.S. citizens. American Samoa has about 32,000 non-citizen U.S. nationals.[10] Under U.S. law, among the territories, "only persons born in American Samoa and Swains Island are non-citizen U.S. nationals."[11] American Samoans are under the protection of the U.S., with the ability to travel to the U.S. without a visa.[11]. Each of these territories is an organized, self-governing territory with three branches of government, a locally elected governor, and a territorial legislature.. Each also elects a non-voting member or, in the case of Puerto Rico a non-voting resident commissioner, to the U.S. House of Representatives.[12][13] They "possess the same powers as other ...
