KQED SCIENCE402,737Join +KQED SCIENCE for a Hangout On Air round table discussion about genetically engineered food in advance of QUEST Northern California’s television premiere of its new half-hour documentary, _Next Meal: Engineering Food_ on Wednesday, May 8, at 7:30pm on +KQED 9. Our discussion will begin at 11AM PST (19:00 GMT). Special guests include, _Next Meal_ producer +Gabriela Quirós, biologist UC Berkeley's +Peggy Lemaux  and UC Davis biologist +Ed Blumwald. Dr. Lemaux is genetically engineering sorghum to make it more easily digestible. Sorghum, a cereal related to corn, is a staple food for 300 million people in Africa. Dr. Blumwald is genetically engineering rice to be drought-tolerant. _Next Meal_ explores how genetically engineered crops are made, their pros and cons, and what the future holds for research and regulations such as labeling in the wake of Proposition 37. Proposition 37 would have required foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled in California. The measure narrowly lost at the ballot box last November where it received 49 percent of the vote.  Are the benefits of genetically engineered food worth the risks?  Join the discussion and find out! We'll be taking your questions from this event page and will try and answer as many as we can during our Hangout.What’s in Your Next Meal?

Update.. this was not passed.. lost by just 6 votes.. which i think is a shame.. he was an awesome president.. the first to break the color barrier, the first to get us universal health care, he brought us from the credit crunch and tent cities to a record high stock market and a fully recovered economy. He acheived a lot under ridiculous amounts of scrutiny, sabotage, and with constant attacks on himself and his family for something as simple as swatting a fly, to his wife's bare shoulders and was even attacked for defending young black kids for wearing hoodies and just being teenagers... He is one of their own.. if Hawaii and illinois want to honor him with a state holiday i think they should. it would be an incredible honor and won he has earned.. but maybe next term :D. https://www.google.com/amp/www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-barack-obama-day-met-0322-20170321-story,amp.html

Sleep loss affects your waistline

Sleep loss increases the risk of obesity through a combination of effects on energy metabolism. This research will highlight how disrupted sleep patterns, a common feature of modern living, can predispose to weight gain, by affecting people’s appetite and responses to food and exercise.

Ummm so now they want to talk about ethics?

"Within hours of Mueller's appointment on Wednesday, the White House began reviewing the Code of Federal Regulations, which restricts newly hired government lawyers from investigating their prior law firm’s clients for one year after their hiring, the sources said.

"An executive order signed by Trump in January extended that period to two years." Of course it was.

If this administration had nothing to hide, they would not be considering doing this. #TrumpRussia #RussianPuppet___Ummm so now they want to talk about ethics?

I think I'm going to be sick.

If you want to really scare an engineer, have one of the last-line backups -- the ones that nobody normal even thinks about, the ones that are meant to make sure the system fails safe if something unimaginably apocalyptic happens -- fail.

The seed vault isn't the best backup against a global apocalypse; honestly, if that happens, then the odds of us being able to use this effectively aren't great either. But it is a backup against, for example, some rapidly-spreading plant disease causing a collapse of a major food crop. These backups are what we'd need to start engineering resistant strains if contamination happened globally faster than we could catch it. That's a nontrivial failure mode of our food system, and that's why this vault is really important to have.

It was designed to be self-operating, maintained at the required -18C primarily by the cold temperatures of Svalbard. An isolated station that would let the people who worry about our food supply sleep at night. But the system never expected this scale of climate change; and with the permafrost melting, water flooded in and froze in the entryway. Thank all the gods, the vault itself remained unbreached, but the system can no longer be considered to be stable in its own right; it's being manned 24/7 until we can figure out how to stabilize it.

Researchers discover first human antibodies that work against all ebolaviruses

After analyzing the blood of a survivor of the 2013-16 Ebola outbreak, a team of scientists from academia, industry and the government has discovered the first natural human antibodies that can neutralize and protect animals against all three major disease-causing ebolaviruses. The findings, published online today in the journal Cell, could lead to the first broadly effective ebolavirus therapies and vaccines. Ebolaviruses infections are usually severe, and often fatal. There are no vaccines or treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating these viruses. Some two dozen ebolavirus outbreaks have occurred since 1976, when the first outbreak was documented in villages along the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire).

Researchers discover first human antibodies that work against all ebolaviruses

After analyzing the blood of a survivor of the 2013-16 Ebola outbreak, a team of scientists from academia, industry and the government has discovered the first natural human antibodies that can neutralize and protect animals against all three major disease-causing ebolaviruses. The findings, published online today in the journal Cell, could lead to the first broadly effective ebolavirus therapies and vaccines. Ebolaviruses infections are usually severe, and often fatal. There are no vaccines or treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating these viruses. Some two dozen ebolavirus outbreaks have occurred since 1976, when the first outbreak was documented in villages along the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire). The largest outbreak in history—the 2013-16 Western African epidemic—caused more than 11,000 deaths and infected more than 29,000 people. Monoclonal antibodies, which bind to and neutralize specific pathogens and toxins, have emerged as one of the most promising treatments for Ebola patients. A critical problem, however, is that most antibody therapies target just one specific ebolavirus. For example, the most advanced therapy—ZMappTM, a cocktail of three monoclonal antibodies—is specific for Ebola virus (formerly known as "Ebola Zaire"), but doesn't work against two related ebolaviruses (Sudan virus and Bundibugyo virus) that have also caused major outbreaks. "Since it's impossible to predict which of these agents will cause the next epidemic, it would be ideal to develop a single therapy that could treat or prevent infection caused by any known ebolavirus," says study co-leader Zachary A. Bornholdt, Ph.D., director of antibody discovery at Mapp Biopharmaceutical, Inc. "Our discovery and characterization of broadly neutralizing human antibodies is an important step toward that goal," adds study co-leader, Kartik Chandran, Ph.D. , professor of microbiology & immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.___

On the shores of the Bering Sea, a team from the University of Aberdeen has been working for seven years with the Yup'ik village of Quinhagaq to excavate an extraordinary trove of archaeological finds -- a collection of over 50,000 artifacts so far, including the wooden ritual masks seen below. These artifacts are extremely fragile, beginning to decay the moment they are exposed to air, and when the project first started there was no way to conserve them on-site, so they were taken -- often still covered in dirt! -- to Aberdeen to be preserved.

This is the remains of a village destroyed in a battle 400 years ago, when attackers besieged a village and smoked out its inhabitants. Today it's being recovered in a race against time: as the climate warms, the permafrost is collapsing, exposing these fragile artifacts for the first time in centuries.
