Munich: German high-end carmaker BMW warned Wednesday it expects pre-tax profits “well below” 2018 levels this year as it announced a massive cost-cutting scheme aimed at saving 12 billion euros (USD 13.6 billion) in total by 2022.A spokesman said that “well below” could indicate a tumble of more than 10 per cent. The Munich-based group’s 2019 result will be burdened with massive investments needed for the transition to electric cars, exchange rate headwinds and rising raw materials prices, it said in a statement.

And a one-off windfall in 2018’s results will create a negative comparison, even though pre-tax profits already fell 8.1 per cent last year. Bosses expect a “slight increase” in sales of BMW and Mini cars, with a slightly fatter operating margin that will nevertheless fall short of their 8.0-per cent target. “We will continue to implement forcefully the necessary measures for growth, continuing performance increases and efficiency,” finance director Nicolas Peter said at the group’s annual press conference. BMW aims to achieve 12 billion euros of savings in the coming years through “efficiency improvements” including reducing the complexity of its range. “Our business model must remain a profitable one in the digital era,” chief executive Harald Krueger said. This year, most new recruits at the group will be IT specialists, while the total number of employees is set to remain flat at around 135,000 worldwide. Agencies read more
OTTAWA — Canada and China have agreed not to engage in state-sponsored hacking of each other’s trade secrets and business information.The two countries reached the agreement during a meeting last week that was part of their new high-level national security dialogue.“The two sides agreed that neither country’s government would conduct or knowingly support cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property, including trade secrets or other confidential business information, with the intent of providing competitive advantages to companies or commercial sectors,” says a communique from the Prime Minister’s Office.The two sides also had “candid” discussions about a possible extradition treaty, said the statement — something China wants, but that Canada has said is a long way off.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang have deepened the political engagement between the two countries with regular “dialogues” such as the security one that took place last week in Ottawa.Daniel Jean, Trudeau’s national security adviser, led the talks with Wang Yongqing, the secretary-general of China’s Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission.Cybersecurity was one the many topics on the agenda, along with counter-terrorism, combating organized crime and regional security issues such as the crisis in Syria and North Korea’s nuclear sabre-rattling.The government statement says the two sides also discussed “judicial and rule of law issues.”John McCallum, the former immigration minister now serving as Canada’s ambassador to China, has previously flagged judicial issues as an area of disagreement between the two as Canada tries to deepen its economic ties.“We disagree on the death penalty,” McCallum told a House Commons committee in March.“We disagree on some aspects of the rule of law and privately and publicly on how the Chinese government treats human rights advocates.” read more

“This link could possibly be explained by higher levels of sex hormones throughout life, but we need to do more work to understand the exact mechanisms involved.”The average age for starting puberty is 11 in girls and 12 in boys, however the timing varies widely between individuals but tends to run closely within families.The team believe the 389 new genetic signals they have identified explain about one quarter of the estimated heritable factors which influence puberty timing, however these are thought to sit alongside numerous environmental factors which trigger the onset of adulthood.They analysed the entire genetic make-up, or genome, of nearly 370,000 people from dozens of previous studies.A “remarkable” new discovery was the role of so-called “imprinted” genes, which are only active in the body when inherited from one parent but not the other.Variations of two of these genes were found both to lower the age of puberty when inherited from the father, but have no effect when inherited from the mother.“This is intriguing as it suggested that mothers and fathers might benefit differently from puberty occurring at earlier or later ages in their children,” said fellow researcher Dr Ken Ong. Our current study identifies direct causal links between earlier puberty timing itself and increased cancer riskDr John Perry, Cambridge University Starting puberty a year earlier comes with an 6 per cent greater risk of breast cancerCredit:Rui Vieira Dr John Perry, who led the research, said: “Our current study identifies direct causal links between earlier puberty timing itself and increased cancer risk. Meanwhile the risk rises 28 per cent for endometrial cancer, 8 per cent of for ovarian cancer and 9 per cent for prostate cancer.It means that a girl who starts puberty at ten has a 12 per cent greater lifetime chance of breast cancer than a girl who begins as a 12-year-old.Previous research had suggested that the timing of puberty was associated with the risk of disease decades later, but until now it was not clear if the results were skewed by other factors known to play a role in disease such as body weight.Published in the journal Nature Genetics, the new study found a significant connection even after taking these into account.The Cambridge team said greater understanding of the role puberty timing plays in disease would help prevent unnecessary deaths. Starting puberty early increases the chances of developing cancer in later life, researchers have proved for the first time.Scientists at Cambridge University have identified new genetic evidence linking the earlier onset of adolescence with several cancers known to be sensitive to sex hormones.They found that for every one year earlier a person goes through puberty, their chances of going on to develop breast cancer increase by 6 per cent.

Being a reader of Geek.com, you have probably watched a little film called Star Wars a few times. If you’ve ever wanted to get up close and personal with a TIE Fighter, now is your chance. With no additional software, you can view an insanely detailed model of Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter in your WebGL-compatible browser — basically anything that’s not Internet Explorer.The model is a complete 3D mockup, and you can spin and zoom to see every minute detail of the craft. You can control the animation completely with the mouse. Just left-click and drag to rotate. The right-click and drag will pan your view without spinning. Zooming in and out is accomplished with the mouse wheel. With a little careful zooming, you can nestle yourself safely into Vader’s pilot seat. Lastly, you can change the rendering options by adding a wireframe, and changing the shading mode for a different look.This model was uploaded to the Sketchfab site by user Trigrou. The Sketchfab service allows you to host and explore 3D objects in a variety of formats. This is all HTML5 — no plugins required. So you can even embed 3D models on your webpage.The model of Vader’s TIE Fighter was originally a .blend file created by BlendSwap user BenJob last year. The credit goes to him for painstakingly designing this model in Blender, a free and open source 3D modeling program. He also has more sci-fi vehicles like the X-Wing and time-traveling DeLorean available for download as 3D files. You can download Blender yourself and try to design something even better.via Sketchfab and BenJob read more
Une mutation décisive dans la reproduction des préhumains il y a 3 millions d’années ?Mettant récemment en ligne leurs travaux sur le site scientifique des PNAS, des chercheurs américains suggèrent qu’une mutation génétique concernant la production de certains sucres dans l’organisme aurait participé à ‘l’hominisation’ de nos ancêtres.Durant des millions d’années, les ancêtres communs des humains et des grands singes ont partagé le même type d’acide sialique, appelé Neu5Gc, un sucre présent dans l’enveloppe des cellules et perméable à certains agents pathogènes. Puis, peut-être en réaction à un parasite, il y a 3 millions d’années environ, une mutation génétique aurait conduit l’organisme de certains préhumains à générer un autre type de ce sucre, le Neu5Ac, à la place du précédent.”(…) Le changement d’acide sialique signifie que ces premiers humains ont développé une réponse immunitaire à Neu5Gc, (…) devenu pour leur système immunitaire une chose étrangère, à détruire. Cela s’est produit à peu près au moment où les premiers humains devenaient peu à peu de grands prédateurs (…). Ils ont commencé à manger de la viande rouge, source majeure de Neu5Gc, ce qui pourrait avoir stimulé davantage encore cette réponse immunitaire”, explique Pascal Gagneux, spécialiste en biologie cellulaire et moléculaire à l’Université de San Diego.Les chercheurs émettent l’hypothèse que, chez les femelles, ces anticorps anti-Neu5Gc, en s’attaquant au sperme ou aux tissus fœtaux issus d’individus mâles ‘restés’ au Neu5Gc (l’ancien sucre), auraient opéré une sélection favorisant les porteurs du nouveau sucre et éliminant peu à peu les porteurs de l’ancien.Une hypothèse confirmée par les expériences À lire aussiMucoviscidose : espérance de vie, symptômes, traitement, de quoi s’agit-t-il ?Ces scientifiques ont testé l’idée en exposant du sperme de chimpanzé à des anticorps humains anti-Neu5Gc, lesquels ont rapidement détruit ce sperme in vitro. Les chercheurs ont ensuite croisé des souris femelles génétiquement modifiées pour produire des anticorps anti-Neu5Gc avec des mâles ‘pro-Neu5Gc’, et constaté un taux de fécondité inférieur à la normale.Pascal Gagneux note ainsi que ces conclusions ajoutent encore du poids à la notion de “spéciation par l’infection”, mécanisme dans lequel une combinaison de maladies infectieuses subies par une population donnée pourrait prédisposer cette population à diverger d’autres populations en raison de l’incompatibilité de la reproduction.

Des cellules souches pour mieux réparer les fracturesDes chercheurs français ont mis au point une méthode permettant de traiter des fractures osseuses par le biais de cellules souches.Cette avancée pourrait conduire à un meilleure traitement des fractures osseuses et par là même à un rétablissement plsu rapide. Des chercheurs français de l’Institut national de la Santé et de la recherche médicale (Inserm) ont réussi à mettre en pratique une technique permettant de réparer des os grâce à des cellules souches. Inédite, cette méthode permet de consolider les 50% de fractures osseuses qui ne parviennent pas à cicatriser correctement (chez un million de personnes en Europe) et qui jusque là étaient prises en charge chirurgicalement.Pour cela, les chercheurs ont utilisé des cellules appelées cellules souches mésenchymateuses (CSM) qui sont présentes dans la moelle osseuse. Celles-ci “sont à l’origine du processus de cicatrisation lorsqu’on se coupe ou lors de légère fracture”, explique Pierre Layrolles, coordinateur du projet à l’Inserm. Les scientifiques les ont donc prélevées, isolées et mises en culture pour les purifier et les faire se multiplier de façon à en obtenir plusieurs centaines de millions. Ces cellules ont ensuite été associées à un biomatériau (des granulés en céramique de phosphate de calcium) puis implantées directement au niveau de la fracture. “Ces substituts synthétiques sont fait de la même matière que nos os mais seuls, ils ne permettent aucune régénération. En imposant ce mélange au niveau du site la fracture comme pour une autogreffe on force le mécanisme naturelle de cicatrisation”, précise M. Layrolles cité par Metrofrance.com. Cette technique permet ainsi d’éviter les lourdes interventions chirurgicales qui sont particulièrement invasives et qui entrainent régulièrement des complications. Un traitement qui pourrait être généralisé d’ici 2 à 3 ans À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?A l’inverse, l’essai thérapeutique avec les cellules souches n’a présenté aucun effet secondaire. Mieux encore : aucun rejet de greffe n’est à déplorer (comme c’est souvent le cas avec les opérations) puisque les cellules proviennent du même patient. Financé par la Commission européenne, le projet vient de recevoir l’accord de l’Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament et des produits de santé pour un essai clinique de phase II. D’ici la fin 2014, 30 patients participeront au projet en France, en Espagne, en Allemagne et en Italie. Si l’essai de phase III est concluant, les chercheurs espèrent généraliser ce traitement d’ici deux à trois ans. Le 11 janvier 2013 à 13:46 • Maxime Lambert read more
On a Friday afternoon, there isn’t an empty seat in the corner courtroom on the third floor of the Clark County Courthouse. Packed together on benches, dozens of men and women scan their cell phones anxiously, fidget or glance at the paperwork in their lap until, finally, the court commissioner calls their name.Some of them have been waiting for a half hour or longer. Still, they aren’t happy when it’s their turn.“Is your marriage irretrievably broken?” Superior Court Commissioner Dan Stahnke asks each person who stands before him. A woman in her 20s tells the commissioner she was married only three years. An older man says he wants to make sure he keeps his Harley-Davidson. The next is concerned about what will happen to property he owns in California.Stahnke asks whether the division of assets is fair and if children are involved. Eventually he says those significant words: “You’re divorced.”This painful ritual has skyrocketed in Clark County. Divorce cases have increased by more than 45 percent over the past several years, from 2,058 divorce filings in 2006 to more than 3,000 last year. This trend counters nationwide statistics showing divorce rates are falling. In Washington, divorce rates have stayed flat.Locally, however, divorce filings were steady at about 2,100 cases per year between 1995 and 2006. Then the numbers began steadily increasing, taking a jump in 2010.The rates are outpacing the county’s population growth. In 2006, Clark County’s divorce rate was 5.04 per 1,000 people; in 2010 the rate was 7.12 per 1,000.The explosion, particularly among people filing for divorce without lawyers, led the Superior Court to open an additional Friday docket last year. Some days, 50 people show up to finalize divorces. On the busiest days, it takes several hours to get through all the cases.And there’s no sign things are slowing down. “Business is good, and that’s bad,” said Superior Court Judge Edwin Poyfair, who chiefly hears family law cases, including dissolutions.Experts attribute the hike to the economic recession, saying financial stress is to blame for failing marriages. Yet those same experts can’t explain the discrepancy in local and nationwide rates. Some say it’s counter-intuitive that divorce rates would be increasing here and flat or decreasing elsewhere. read more

In the Gordon Hartlieb Hall, dozens of mugs, bowls, teapots and other ceramic pieces sit atop counters. Hundreds of pieces will be available for purchase at the Clay Body Club’s bi-annual sale. (Photo by Samantha Davenport, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)UAA ceramic students are getting ready to sell their pieces for the ceramic club’s annual winter pottery sale. In recent years, they have had a line out the door before the sale even begins. Funds from the sale go towards the club’s travels, which send students to the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts and on other artistic endeavors.Listen nowJade Ariah is the president of the ceramics club. She helps put on the sale with the 20-plus students that are in the club. Students sell mugs, vases, bowls, platters, lidded jars, ceramic baskets and just about anything you could think of that could be made on a wheel.Ariah used to do more wheel throwing, but now she creates smaller sculptures, like jewelry and pins, with her hands.“I was making these little ceramic pendants that had these little retro style women on them, and old sayings from advertisements and stuff like that. I think even the last one, I had made these little corn dog pins, just goofy, retro stuff,” Ariah said.Jade Ariah creates small sculptures like necklaces her corn dog pins. They will be on sale at the Gordon Hartlieb Hall on Dec. 8. (Photo courtesy of Jade Ariah)Forty percent of the money from the sale goes to the club, and the other 60 percent goes back to the students. Ariah says hundreds of pieces will be up for sale.“It’s like the whole semester of work by everyone in wheel throwing,” Ariah said.Ariah says there are “seasoned regulars” who line up 45 minutes to an hour early to be the first people through the door.“We have this guy who comes every year, and he always comes with an actual tote, just ready to start packing it in. It’s kind of, yeah, free-for-all,” Ariah said.Funds raised go towards visiting artists and conferences. Currently, the club is raising funds for an upcoming New York City museum tour. Steven Godfrey, department chair and ceramics professor, has been at UAA for 18 years. He says the trips help students make a decision on what they want to do for the rest of their lives.“It’s very eye-opening for them and it really can change a students’ life and can change a students’ perspective, and it’s really exciting to see that. Oftentimes, students will come back from these conferences and they’re so energized and transformed as artists,” Godfrey said.If you can’t make it to the upcoming sale, the club will have another sooner than you think. They also host a sale at the end of the spring semester, typically the Friday before finals.The sale will be held on Dec. 8 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Gordon Hartlieb Hall on campus. read more

Kolkata: On the day when Narendra Modi would be sworn in as the Prime Minister for the second time in Delhi, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will take part in ‘Satyagraha’ in front of Naihati Municipality as a token of protest against the assault on her party workers allegedly by BJP-backed goons in North 24-Parganas.Banerjee will participate in a sit in demonstration in Naihati at around 1 pm on Thursday and is also expected to visit the Trinamool Congress workers who were rendered homeless by BJP goons across the district. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIt may be mentioned here that since the publication of the election results, many Trinamool Congress workers and their family members have allegedly been driven out of their homes by BJP activists in Naihati, Bhatpara, Jagaddal and some other parts of the district. The Trinamool Congress Supremo will also meet her party workers who have taken refuge in various places after being rendered homeless. Banerjee’s move sends a strong signal of assurance to the family members of those who have been subjected to the atrocities. Senior Trinamool Congress leader and Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim said on Wednesday that BJP-backed goons had carried out hooliganism at Naihati Municipality and forced the councillors to join the saffron party at gunpoint. “They stormed into the municipality building, locked the room of municipal chairman, snatched documents from the councillors and forced them to go to Delhi,” he said. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state”Family members of the TMC councillors were threatened. Political leaders and councillors cannot resist armed goons of BJP. They forcibly captured the municipality and bombs were hurled on the houses of TMC councillors. Many of our councillors have been rendered homeless since May 24. There should be a democratic process. The municipality chairman of our party will step aside if BJP can prove majority in the no-confidence move initiated by us,” Hakim added. Taking a dig at BJP, he said those who speak about democracy are resorting to violence. Incidentally, municipal chairman of Naihati Ashoke Chatterjee met Hakim on Wednesday and told reporters that the BJP goons have ransacked the dialysis and CT scan units at the municipality. The family members of a TMC activist from Jagaddal had met Director General of Police (DGP) Virendra at Nabanna on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Kajol Mondal, a former Panchayat Pradhan of Saltora in Bankura, who received severe injuries after being beaten up allegedly by BJP workers, succumbed to his injuries at Durgapur Mission Hospital in Durgapur on Wednesday. The district police have so far arrested two BJP activists for their alleged role in the incident. Trinamool Congress leader Suvendu Adhikari said that he has informed the matter to party Supremo Banerjee and also demanded stern punishment for the perpetrators. Adhikari also said that BJP activists had taken out a rally in celebration of their victory in the elections, when some of them dragged Mondal out of his house and brutally attacked him with sharp weapons. He received multiple injuries on his body and was admitted to the hospital. “We are with the bereaved family and will extend all sorts of assistance. We have no words to condemn such a heinous crime. Mondal had been associated with our party for over 20 years and played an important role at the local Panchayat. People of Bengal should introspect whom they have voted for,” Adhikari maintained. read more

Tambor accuser says she hopes ‘Transparent’ comes back BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – A transgender actress who accused “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor of sexual misconduct says she’s grateful for the support she’s received and hopes the show is able to continue without the Emmy-winning star.Trace Lysette is one of two women who came forward last year and accused Tambor of sexual harassment. Tambor has denied the allegations.Lysette says she’s grateful for the support she’s received since coming forward with her claim.“Look, I did what was right for me with what occurred to me and my body and I’ve never made decisions out of fear. I’ve always been a fighter and survivor and so the outpouring of support from the public was very reaffirming to me and it was very tough, but that made it a little bit better,” said Lysette, who spoke on the red carpet before Thursday’s GLAAD Media Awards, where “Transparent” was a nominee.Tambor, 73, won two Emmy Awards for his role as a retired professor who is transgender and transitions late in life. But Amazon Studios announced in February that Tambor would no longer be on the series, prompting him to denounce what he called false accusations and the studio’s handling of the matter.Series creator Jill Soloway said in a statement that action was being taken to ensure the series’ workplace “respects the safety and dignity of every individual.” But the fate of the show remains unclear.Lysette said she’s hopeful the show will return. When asked if she felt that justice was served, she said, “You know what would be justice? … If we can make a really great season five.” by Nicole Evatt, The Associated Press Posted Apr 13, 2018 12:16 pm PDT Last Updated Apr 13, 2018 at 12:41 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Trace Lysette arrives at the 29th annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday, April 12, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Shop owners with properties on Limassol’s Misiaouli and Kavazoglou Street on Wednesday protested against the planned road works which include a new cycle lane, saying that it meant less parking for cars which in turn would affect their profits.The shopkeepers who are supported by small shopkeepers’ union Povek claim the reconstruction has been planned without taking them into consideration though they are directly affected and argue that they will feel the consequences, leading to closures and bankruptcy of 140 businesses.“There were about 100 people demonstrating against the plans but the municipality will go ahead anyway,” secretary of Povek in Limassol Kyriakos Moustakas said after the protest in front of the town hall.The works are part of a number of projects co-funded by the European regional development fund aimed at developing the western part of the city centre, an announcement by the municipality said.The €5.2 million project is not only about a bicycle path, but 150 new trees will be planted and 10 bus stops will be added. The area will also have pavements ramps for disabled people and a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists, pedestrian crossings, new lighting, additional traffic lights and an underground utilities network.Mayor Nicos Nicolaides, presenting the project recently, said that after eight public consultations the number of parking places has been increased from 81 to 158, while the cycling path has been shortened by 300 metres from 850 to 550 metres.If the shop owners gave just one metre of the three they have as part of their premises, he added, more parking places could be created. In case no cycling lane was included, the municipality would lose the € 5.2 million from the European development fund.Terra Cypria in a letter to the mayor strongly supported the municipality’s plan.“This work will be co-funded by the European commission under its programmes for better more liveable cities and improved quality of life; it funds projects that promote walking, bicycling and mass transportation; the programme encourages sidewalks, bike-paths, green areas and promotes the ideas of liveable cities and quality of life for its citizens,” the letter said.The conservation foundation also pointed out that if the proposed work eliminates bicycle paths, reduces sidewalks and green spaces in order to add additional parking spots directly in front of existing shops, it stands in danger of losing the EU co-funding, as it then becomes just another car-servicing road.Costas Orountiotis from the NGO on Wednesday explained that they don’t mean to oppose the owners.“We sympathise with the merchants’ concerns for adverse impact on their businesses but we feel it is unwarranted and misplaced. The vast majority is for the changes and they can’t see that more citizen-friendly streets will ultimately support their businesses.”“We need to promote alternative ways of transport, cars are not for everyone, especially in the centre where we cannot expand roads and parking on the pavements is not a solution.”You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
