The bed bug feeds on bloodHairier skin may be the key to avoiding being bitten by bed bugs, claim Sheffield academics.Hungry bugs placed on shaved arms were more likely to try to feed compared with those on unshaved arms, the journal Biology Letters reported.Researchers say the hair slows down the bed bugs and warns the victim.Pest controllers say the UK is currently experiencing a steep rise in the number of bed bug infestations.Prof Michael Siva-Jothy, from Sheffield University’s Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, recruited 29 brave volunteers to test the theory further, watching the bedbugs as they found a place to feed and removing them only as they were about to bite.He found that more layers of both longer visible hairs and finer, “vellus” hairs near the surface appeared to work as a deterrent to the insects, with the finer hairs also acting as an early warning system.Prof Siva-Jothy said: “Our findings show that more body hairs mean better detection of parasites – the hairs have nerves attached to them and provide us with the ability to detect displacement.”He said they also slowed down the insect as it searched for a tasty spot to bite.“The results have implications for understanding why we look the way we do, what selective forces might have driven us to look the way we do, and may even provide insight for better understanding of how to reduce biting insects’ impact on humans.”However, even though men are naturally hairier than women, they do not appear to be bitten less often.Professor Siva-Jothy suggested this pointed to an evolutionary battle between bed bugs and their prey, with the insects adapting to automatically head for relatively hairless bits of the body, such as wrists and ankles.He added that extreme hairiness might also be more of a disadvantage than an advantage.“If you have a heavy coat of long thick hairs it is easier for parasites to hide, even if you can detect them.“Our proposal is that we retain the fine covering because it aids detection and if we lost all hair, even the relatively invisible fine hair, our detection ability goes right down.”Evolutionary pressureThis tallies with other studies which look at how humans came to be relatively less hairy than apes.Other scientists have suggested that swapping thicker fur for clothes was a way of making insect bites and parasitic infestations less likely.Prof Mark Pagel, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Reading, said that biting parasites remain a major cause of disease and death worldwide, making them a potentially enormous evolutionary pressure on early man.He said: “This vellus hair is certainly no use for anything else, so it is a reasonable hypothesis that it developed in response to a strong selective pressure in our past.“Mammals are unique in developing this wonderful fur, and humans are the only mammals to jettison it, so there must have been a very good reason to do so.”BBC Newslast_img read more

Remembering Mark: A Sister’s Story About Family, Faith, And Cancer

first_imgMark Eckstein was a husband, father, church member and city worker.As organizers and residents are gearing up for the annual Ripley County Relay For Life this weekend, a local family is remembering a loved one who battled cancer.It has been a difficult year for family and friends of Mark Eckstein. He passed away in May after an 11-month fight with cancer at the age of 43.The 1988 graduate of Batesville High School was well known in the community and worked for the city’s water and gas department for 26 years.Life took an unexpected turn in 2013 when Mark was diagnosed with Stage 4 adenocarcinoma cancer.His sister, Joan McKamey recalls her brother, “I don’t know anybody that didn’t like Mark. He was a tough guy, but there was something very gentle about him and very caring. A big guy with a big heart.”McKamey said the family knew something may have been wrong with Mark before he was diagnosed last year.“We were all on pins and needles until he got his definite diagnosis at the end of the month, it was a big blow to us, a definite big blow to us,” McKamey said. “It was the first time we had dealt with something like that in our immediate family.”Finding out a loved one has cancer is a moment many of us have experienced. According to the American Cancer Society, this year alone there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cases diagnosed. The disease remains the second most common cause of death in the US, accounting for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths.“It was devastating news and was a very very difficult journey to travel with Mark, his wife and kids,” McKamey remembered. “It brought our family closer. We appreciate our folks and the efforts they made and the decent people we turned out to be.”“But Mark, he was one of the best of the best.”It is understandable how a person can question their faith when the news is received that you, or someone you love, has cancer. McAmey noted that she never once heard Mark or his wife question, “Why me?”Mark, like many individuals who are battling cancer, or have fought the disease, found the resiliency and inner strength to lean on faith, family and acceptance as he progressed through the cancer diagnosis and treatment.“Your body is just under siege from the cancer but also especially from the treatment, that was wearying,” McKamey said. “Yet he put up the fight. I think he had a lot to live for and a lot to fight for.”“I think that is part of his legacy, for his kids especially. They were worth the fight and he was not going to go down without a fight.”He married Julie Simon in 1995 and they have two children, Carmen, 16, and Jared, 14.A luminaria service will be held at the Relay For Life at Batesville High School on Saturday night.Free time for Mark was spent with his family. The member of St. Maurice Catholic Church also enjoyed golfing, squirrel hunting, riding motorcycles and the simple pleasure of the outdoors.“I think Mark would tell us to live each day to the fullest and make the most of it. To see the blessing and the gift of each day, each person, and each opportunity, and to not let them pass by because life can be taken from us so quickly.”Mark’s story, and the story of other local cancer victims and survivors will be shared this weekend at Batesville High School. The 19th annual Ripley County Relay For Life is from 8:00 a.m. Saturday to 8:00 a.m. Sunday.Batesville United Methodist Church, in partnership with Margaret Mary Health, is offering monthly cancer support group meetings. Anyone is invited. The first meeting will be held at the church at 5:30 p.m. on Thurs., June 26.last_img read more

Syracuse lacrosse opponent preview: What to know about No. 8 Johns Hopkins

first_img Published on March 18, 2016 at 11:30 am Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus Defensively, Blue Jays defender Nick Fields will likely be guarding Syracuse point man Dylan Donahue. Fields has only produced one caused turnover on the season and leads the team with five penalties. However, in the previous two games, Fields’ assigned players notched just two assists and no goals. He’s also picked up the most ground balls (10) outside of the Blue Jays’ faceoff specialist and goalie.“We think Nick’s a very talented player …,” Johns Hopkins head coach Dave Pietramala said on a teleconference this week, “but we can’t afford to go into this game saying, ‘OK, Nick you’ve got your guy and that’s what we’re going to worry about.’”Craig Madarasz has handled the bulk of the faceoff load (46-of-90) with Hunter Moreland pitching in at times (24-of-33). Brock Turnbaugh takes care of the duties in goal. Turnbaugh is saving 52.5 percent of the shots he sees, which is 26th in the country.How Johns Hopkins beats Syracuse: Pietramala joked that the key to beating Syracuse would be if the Orange just didn’t get off the bus. Realistically, the Blue Jays focus will be on maximizing its possessions.The Orange scores more than 14 goals per game — third best in the nation. And with Williams winning more than 70 percent of his faceoffs — second best — its nearly impossible for teams to match the scoring output because they don’t have the ball.On the defensive end, the Blue Jays will have to take advantage of every backup, every ground ball and clear the ball at a high rate in order to get it up to the offense. The team only clears the ball at an 83.3 percent success rate. When Syracuse played Virginia, the Cavaliers were beaten at the faceoff X, 18-11, but dominated getting to ground balls, 43-29. As a result, UVA lost by just one goal.The Johns Hopkins defenders will be focused on getting pressure on Syracuse’s shooters by “getting to hands,” Pietramala said. What stands out to him is SU’s top players’ high shooting percentages this season. Derek DeJoe has 10 goals and is shooting over 52 percent, while Nick Mariano leads the Orange will 11 and is shooting 42.3 percent.In order for the Blue Jays to compete, they’ll have to get the ball to the other side of the field and into the hands of Brown and Stanwick to try to make things happen.“We’re willing to play. And we’re going to have to play in order to score goals or at least try to score goals,” Pietramala said. “… But having enough possessions to be able to generate offensive is going to be important.” Numbers to know:63.2  – Johns Hopkins man-up team has had a 63.2 percent success rate, which is the third highest in the country. Syracuse’s man-down defense is 51st.3 – The Blue Jays have had the third-toughest schedule so far this season, playing teams with a combined 63.8 winning percentage. Only Maryland and Duke have had tougher schedules1921 – The year the Syracuse and Johns Hopkins first played. The game was a 4-4 tie and the only tie in the series.Player to watch: Ryan BrownStanwick directs the offense, but it’s Brown that provides the firepower. With Syracuse likely to maintain a significant advantage on faceoffs, Brown will have to take advantage of each offensive opportunity that may come few and far between. There are enough pieces around him that Brown won’t need another eight-goal performance against SU, but he’ll be the one to set the tone for Johns Hopkins’ offense. Comments Logan Reidsma | Senior Staff Photographer The Johns Hopkins report: The Blue Jays offense averages 12.4 goals per game and is orchestrated by sophomore attack Shack Stanwick. He is second in the country with 3.4 assists per game and fourth with 5.2 points per game. Stanwick leads Johns Hopkins with 26 points with his older brother and the team’s second-leading point producer from last year, Wells Stanwick, lost to graduation.Ryan Brown is the Blue Jays’ go-to goal scorer with 15 goals on the season — a team-high. He’s the only player on the squad with 10 or more goals and has a 37-game goal streak going until it was snapped against Princeton on March 5. His average of three goals per game is tied for eighth-best in the nation. Against Syracuse in 2014, Brown scored eight of Johns Hopkins’ 10 goals on the way to a 12-10 loss.center_img Related Stories Syracuse’s season ends in 16-15 loss to Johns Hopkins in NCAA tournament quarterfinals The 55th installment of the Syracuse-Johns Hopkins rivalry will take place on Saturday as the No. 3 Orange (5-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) head to Homewood Field to face the No. 8 Blue Jays (3-2) at 4 p.m.Syracuse is coming off a 15-4 drubbing of St. John’s on March 12, but will face its first Top 10 opponent of the season.Johns Hopkins most recently took down then-No. 6 Towson, 14-8, on March 12.

SU was fresh off its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship and had beaten the Blue Jays, 13-10, two months earlier. But the Orange fell behind several times and had to come back from four deficits in the tournament matchup.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Blue Jays outscored Syracuse, 5-1, in the third quarter to take an 11-8 lead going into the final frame. Though Johns Hopkins seemed to hold a commanding 13-9 advantage with less than 10 minutes to play, SU fought back. The Orange scored three times in the last minute of the game to pull within one. With 23 seconds left in the game, Syracuse faceoff specialist Ben Williams pulled the ball back toward himself on the final faceoff and tried to scoop it up. He couldn’t get the ball into his stick as he took a step toward the offensive zone and the Blue Jays took possession as the final seconds elapsed. Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Psychology Without Darwin

Punisher pays,” Nature 452, 297-298 (20 March 2008) | doi:10.1038/452297a.3.  Dunn, Aknin and Norton, “Spending Money on Others Promotes Happiness,” Science, 21 March 2008: Vol. 319. no. 5870, pp. 1687-1688, DOI: 10.1126/science.1150952.Evolutionary theory is without form and void, but lacking an intelligent spirit to hover over its dark waters, it will never emerge into a garden of scientific understanding.  When they try to find Darwin’s tree in their mindless void, they fail; when they don’t, they do just as well and, like the proverbial broken clock, are occasionally right.  Being right by chance is no reason to follow their advice.    We don’t need Science to tell us how to behave.  We don’t need their mythical edens in the savannah to explain our dark side.  Their explanations leave puzzles, conundrums, and emptiness.  While policies that promote prosocial spending (e.g., tax breaks for charitable donations) make sense, who believes for a minute that a government or oligarchy of scientists will change people’s hearts?    Science encroaches here on foreign territory.  There is an institution with a much better track record on helping people avoid costly punishment and enjoy the happiness of giving: a church that teaches the operating manual of the Manufacturer without adding or taking away from it.  Why does the USA have the best success rate in the pursuit of happiness?  Because its founders believed that humans were not just evolved animals.  They held them as truths that people are endowed by their Creator with life and liberty and self-determination.  In light of the two papers above, it seems obvious now.  You might almost say it is self-evident.(Visited 29 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Can psychology kick the Darwin habit?  For years it has been conventional to express all human actions in Darwinian terms.  We struggle with city life, for instance, because we evolved to hunt prey in the savannah – not the Georgia kind, but the African plains where we first climbed down from the trees to walk upright.  War, altruism, music, language, culture, and many other human behavioral traits both good and bad (including murder and rape) have been explained as adaptations due to group selection, individual selection, or both.  Two papers this week, however, break this trend.  One struggles to find an evolutionary explanation and fails.  The other has no need of the Darwin hypothesis.Punishing Darwin with faint praise:  “Winners don’t punish” is the title of an unusual paper in Nature.1  An interdisciplinary team from Harvard and Stockholm School of Economics, composed of specialists in evolutionary dynamics, economics, mathematics and systems biology studied the phenomenon of “costly punishment,” looking for its evolutionary origin.  Costly punishment means “paying a costly punishment to incur a cost” – e.g., revenge.  How is this human behavior to be explained?    The team could not find adequate explanations in group selection or individual selection.  It seems maladaptive in all cases.  Kin selection, direct and indirect reciprocity, and all the other Darwinian buzz-phrases seemed inadequate.  They ran game experiments giving subjects opportunities to cooperate, defect, or impose punishment on others (something like Survivor?).  The control group was denied the option of costly punishment.  What happened?Here we show that the option of costly punishment increases the amount of cooperation but not the average payoff of the group.  Furthermore, there is a strong negative correlation between total payoff and use of costly punishment.  Those people who gain the highest total payoff tend not to use costly punishment: winners don’t punish.  This suggests that costly punishment behaviour is maladaptive in cooperation games and might have evolved for other reasons.That last line shows they left the door open for some unknown evolutionary explanation, but they could only suggest options.  Maybe it gives a way for an individual to enforce submission or rise to dominance.  Even so, their conclusion sounded distinctly un-Darwinian:People engage in conflicts and know that conflicts can carry costs.  Costly punishment serves to escalate conflicts, not to moderate them.  Costly punishment might force people to submit, but not to cooperate.  It could be that costly punishment is beneficial in these other games, but the use of costly punishment in games of cooperation seems to be maladaptive.  We have shown that in the framework of direct reciprocity, winners do not use costly punishment, whereas losers punish and perish.In the same issue of Nature,2 two German reviewers almost seemed forlorn that no evolutionary explanation was found.  Milinski and Rockenbach said, “The tendency of humans to punish perceived free-loaders, even at a cost to themselves, is an evolutionary puzzle: punishers perish, and those who benefit the most are those who have never punished at all.”  Costly punishment can enforce cooperation, they said, but “it can’t have evolved for inducing cooperation.”  The reason?  Punishment is “fundamentally counterproductive, because it pays off neither for the punisher nor for the group.”  It is intuitively obvious that natural selection would not retain a counterproductive or maladaptive trait.    Ethical questions aside about their methodology and conclusions, the significant aspect of this paper is that they could not find a Darwinian explanation for the trait.  The team and the reviewers – six evolutionary specialists – had to leave this conundrum unanswered: “costly punishment remains one of the most thorny puzzles in human social dilemmas.  Dreber and colleagues’ results make it plain that we are still a long way from understanding the dark side of human sociality.”Give, and you shall receive:  The next day, a paper in Science did not even attempt to find Darwin in the data.3  Three researchers from University of British Columbia and Harvard reported, “Spending Money on Others Promotes Happiness.”  (We need scientific papers to explain the obvious sometimes.)  They did experiments cross-sectionally and longitudinally on subjects.  They even checked anonymous giving: “participants who were randomly assigned to spend money on others experienced greater happiness than those assigned to spend money on themselves.”    They didn’t exactly quote Jesus, “it is more blessed to give than to receive,” but they did rhetorically pose Mom and Dad’s truism, “Money can’t buy happiness” as a question expecting a negative answer:Can money buy happiness?  A large body of cross-sectional survey research has demonstrated that income has a reliable, but surprisingly weak, effect on happiness within nations, particularly once basic needs are met.  Indeed, although real incomes have surged dramatically in recent decades, happiness levels have remained largely flat within developed countries across time.  One of the most intriguing explanations for this counterintuitive finding is that people often pour their increased wealth into pursuits that provide little in the way of lasting happiness, such as purchasing costly consumer goods.  An emerging challenge, then, is to identify whether and how disposable income might be used to increase happiness.    Ironically, the potential for money to increase happiness may be subverted by the kinds of choices that thinking about money promotes; the mere thought of having money makes people less likely to help acquaintances, to donate to charity, or to choose to spend time with others, precisely the kinds of behaviors that are strongly associated with happiness.  At the same time, although thinking about money may drive people away from prosocial behavior, money can also provide a powerful vehicle for accomplishing such prosocial goals.  We suggest that using money in this fashion—investing income in others rather than oneself—may have measurable benefits for one’s own happiness.Again, it’s not that they quoted the Bible, “the love of money is the root of all evil,” but that this paper lacked any reference to evolutionary theory.    Incidentally, how does a scientist devise a happy-meter?  They didn’t.  They asked the survey respondents to rate their happiness under various situations, such as after receiving a windfall profit-sharing bonus, and they categorized and did mathematical analysis on the results.    They found it alarming that so few invest money in prosocial spending when happiness seems clearly to be an outcome.  By the end of the paper, their advice sounded almost moral:Given that people appear to overlook the benefits of prosocial spending, policy interventions that promote prosocial spending—encouraging people to invest income in others rather than in themselves—may be worthwhile in the service of translating increased national wealth into increased national happiness.The paper was summarized in a Science Now article.  Elsa Youngstedt remarked about the counter-intuitive result that shows giving the lottery might be more fun than getting it.  “Overturning classic economic wisdom,” she said, “new research shows that it’s not how much you have that matters, it’s how you spend it.  People who donate their dollars to charities or splurge on gifts for others are more content than those who squander all the dough on themselves.”  Her write-up also said nothing about evolution, nor did the report by Brendan Borrell on Nature News.last_img read more

Sasol boost for solar energy research

first_imgThe investment forms part of Sasol’s university collaboration project, which builds on the company’s longstanding relationships with leading South African research universities to partner in research and development projects. The solar thermal energy research at Stellenbosch University supports Sasol’s initiative to investigate opportunities in the field of renewable energies and low carbon electricity. The funding is in addition to a R4-million investment by the university on expanding the research facilities and appointing support staff in the solar thermal energy research group, Sasol said in a statement last week. The money will be used to appoint a senior researcher to lead the research effort, and to purchase new equipment for the University’s Solar Roof Laboratory. Renewable energies Research and teaching expertise Investing in universities Training scientists “The Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering has a long history of involvement with the South African power generation industry, delivering valuable research results that frequently led to improvements in the efficiency of power stations making it a logical partner for Sasol in researching new energy opportunities,” Sasol said. 11 August 2009 During 2008, Sasol formed a New Energy division to develop business opportunities that would help reduce the company’s greenhouse gas footprint. Stellenbosch University established a Centre for Renewable and Sustainable Energy Studies in 2007 to implement its postgraduate programme in renewable and sustainable energy studies. Through the collaboration, universities will be able to leverage Sasol’s research resources, while Sasol will be able to complement their own research efforts and capabilities by leveraging academic excellence to assist with the effective execution of research and development projects. “The primary objective of this programme, funded by the South African National Energy Research Institute, is to train scientists and engineers with the required technical expertise to unlock the country’s renewable energy resources, on the one hand, and implement appropriate technology for using sustainable energy, on the other.” “Southern Africa is blessed with some of the best solar radiation in the world, which is why Sasol supports the development of solar energy technologies as a viable renewable energy source for southern Africa within a carbon-constrained future,” Sasol said. Over the last 11 years, the department has focussed on bulk renewable solar power generation. South African petrochemicals group Sasol has announced a R3-million, five-year sponsorship of solar thermal energy research at Stellenbosch University’s Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering. Stellenbosch University has established research and teaching expertise spanning a wide spectrum in renewable energy, and in particular in solar thermal energy.
