SNCLavalin CEO says he never cited job losses in push for remediation

first_imgTORONTO – The chief executive of SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. says he never cited the protection of 9,000 Canadian jobs as a reason the company should be granted a remediation agreement to avoid a criminal trial on allegations it paid millions of dollars in bribes to obtain government business in Libya.In an interview with The Canadian Press, Neil Bruce said Wednesday if the engineering firm is convicted and barred from bidding on federal contracts here at home its workers would end up working for the Montreal-based company’s foreign rivals.“There would be a reduction with us but these are talented folks. They’ll get a job,” Bruce said.“This thing that somehow they’re going to be unemployed is not true because they are highly qualified, highly experienced people.”Bruce’s comments come as a political storm in Ottawa continues over allegations that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his senior staff and others improperly pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to end a criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.Trudeau and his staff have said their only concern was for SNC-Lavalin’s 9,000 jobs, which might be at risk if the company were convicted and then barred from bidding on federal contracts for up to 10 yearsThe affair has so far cost Trudeau two cabinet ministers, his principal secretary and the country’s top public servant, although he continues to insist no one did anything wrong.Bruce said its Canadian workforce has decreased from 20,000 in 2012 and will likely fall further. That, despite it being the only Canadian company that does nuclear technology work helping Ontario facilities like Chalk River, Darlington and Pickering. Also, no other domestic firm does the scope of infrastructure services on projects in cities like Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto.He said the company has calculated that about 75 per cent of its rivals have concluded deferred prosecution agreements (DPA) in their host countries and are free to work in Canada.Meanwhile, Bruce said he still doesn’t know why the director of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada and former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould were not open to granting a remediation agreement.He said the company appealed that decision in Federal Court, hoping to learn some of the rationale.“We did an appeal not because we thought we would win the appeal but because we thought we might get a reason and that got tossed out with no reason so we still don’t know.”Bruce said he’s not holding much hope that an agreement will be offered under the current political climate, especially if the Conservatives win the fall election, and is preparing for a lengthy legal process.“We have never asked for the charges to be dropped, we’ve never asked for anything to be circumvented,” he said. “We just want to move on for the sake principally of our employees first and foremost and our investors.”A main stumbling block to getting a DPA could be public perception that former employees accused of crimes aren’t being held accountable, he said.He said innocent SNC-Lavalin employees feel bruised and battered by the last six weeks since a report surfaced that government officials pressured the former attorney general to grant the company a deferred prosecution agreement.“And I think fundamentally that’s unfair on our employees who had nothing to do with what went on seven to 20 years ago.”While he’s not surprised that politicians would make hay out of this issue during an election year, Bruce said he’s concerned the company will continue to be a political punching bag as the campaign unfolds.“If it sort of doesn’t move on from that or gets worse of course it’s a concern.”Bruce also said few people have publicly defended the company’s important contribution to the country as a home-grown success story.“So if anybody’s happy for us not being able to do that work and give it to the Americans or give it to the Europeans I think that’s a sad, sad position.”He said there’s no plans to move the company’s headquarters from Montreal, adding competitors are envious of its shareholder base that is 82 per cent Canadian and led by the Caisse de depot which has helped fund its acquisition of British engineering firm Atkins.“We see ourselves as Team Canada. We are a global champion, one of few. There’s not many and we’re proud to be Canadian.”Companies in this story: (TSX:SNC)last_img read more

Nissan to recall Altimas for third time to fix hood latches

DETROIT – Nissan is recalling nearly 930,000 Altima midsize cars worldwide — some for a third time — to fix a latch problem that could let the hood fly open while the cars are moving.The new recall covers cars from the 2013 to 2015 model years including 846,000 in the U.S. that were made at factories in Smyrna, Tennessee, and Canton, Mississippi.Nissan says paint can flake off the latch, exposing bare metal. Over time, the latches can rust and cause the secondary hood latch to remain open. If the main latch isn’t closed and the car is driven, the secondary latch may not hold the hood down, Nissan said in documents posted Friday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.The company says that if the hood opens while the cars are in motion, it could obstruct the driver’s vision and cause a crash. But Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger said the company has no reports of any crashes or injuries.Nissan says in two previous recalls in 2014 and 2015, dealers adjusted latches and applied lubricant. But if the lubricant wasn’t put on evenly, the problem could persist.Nissan will notify owners and replace the latches for free starting in mid-February.

Speakers at UN event urge stronger leadership more financing to ensure education

The Global Education First Initiative, launched last September by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, aims to put every child in school, improve the quality of learning, and foster global citizenship. “Our efforts are bearing fruit. Education is regaining its rightful place on the global agenda,” Mr. Ban stated in a video message for the first anniversary of the initiative. “There is new momentum in countries with the greatest needs, such as those affected by conflict, which are home to half of all children lacking education. “But we must do more – much more,” he stressed. “Educating the poorest and most marginalized children will require bold political leadership and increased financial commitment.” Noting that aid for education has dropped for the first time in a decade, the Secretary-General emphasized the need to reverse this decline, forge new partnerships, and bring much greater attention to the quality of education. The initiative has rallied together a broad range of actors and spurred a global movement to put education at the heart of the social, political and development agenda. “Each of us is playing a key role in the success of this initiative,” noted Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). “Now we need to take this forward, to accelerate progress because we are not on track to meet our promises.”The numbers remain “staggering,” she said, pointing out that 57 million children remain out of school. In addition, UNESCO estimates that 250 million children are illiterate due to the poor quality of education. Enrolment has increased in many countries but drop out rates remain “unacceptably high.” Too many young people are graduating without relevant knowledge, without skills, Ms. Bokova told a special event to mark the initiative’s one-year anniversary, and this is happening at a time when aid is decreasing and governments are cutting back on education. “Let us be clear. Cutting back on education means cutting the most powerful investment a country can make. Reducing aid to education means undermining the sustainability of all development,” she stated.“To reach those left behind, we need resources to match will and we need stronger cooperation between governments and development partners. We must ensure children not only get to school but get the education they need.”Today’s event was held on the margins of the annual high-level debate of the General Assembly and moderated by Gordon Brown, the UN Special Envoy for Global Education. It brought together world leaders, heads of major organizations, education activists and representatives of the private sector.In her remarks, Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban for attending classes, called on leaders to focus on education to resolve the world’s problems. “This is our demand, our request to all the responsible people – that instead of sending weapons, instead of sending tanks to Afghanistan and all these countries that are suffering from terrorism, send books. Instead of sending tanks, send pens. Instead of sending soldiers, send teachers. This is the only way we can fight for education… “I believe that if we work together, if we are united for the cause of education, we can achieve our goals.” ‹ › Participants at the Delivering on the Global Education Promise special event at UN Headquarters.

Troubled upbringing of 21st century highwaymen no excuse for stabbing strangers judge

Two killers described as “21st century highwaymen” were told by a judge their troubled upbringing was no excuse for their murderous spree as they were jailed for life. Nathan Gilmaney, 19, and Troy Thomas, who was just 17 when they robbed 28-year-old Abdul Samad’s iPhone, lashed out when he refused to give them his PIN number – stabbing him to death. Video footage captured them riding around on a moped and attacking strangers at will on October 16 last year. It shows them mounting the pavement to steal a victim’s belongings. The Common Serjeant of London Judge Richard Marks heard both teenagers had problems in their lives, but he dismissed them as a reason for their violence. He said: ‘There are many, many young people who have these of difficulties who do not resort to thuggish and wicked behaviour like you did that night’Mr Samad, who was engaged to be married, was killed during a four hour robbery spree the pair carried out when they were “bored” after smoking cannabis and taking Xanax tranquilisers.The killers were both handed life sentences at the Old Bailey with Gilmaney told he must spend 27 years in jail and Thomas 22.Relatives and friends of the murderers crammed into the packed public gallery sobbed and screamed “love you, son” as the sentences were handed out. Murder victom Abdul Samad “Since his death there has not been a single moment that goes by for me without shedding tears.”I would do anything to get him back. Sometimes when I am at home I think he will walk in again and that this has all been a bad dream. However, as each minute, each hour and each day goes by I then realise Abdul is not going to come back home. Abdul has been taken from us forever.”I will never be able to get over losing a son. I feel like Abdul’s death has caused a hole in my heart and a vital organ of my body is missing. I often feel like a dead woman walking around my home.”  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. As the emergency services rushed to help and “tried to comfort his traumatised family”, the moped muggers “completely unmoved by what they had just done, prowled the streets looking for another target”.A few minutes later they tried to rob Joseph Denby on Golborne Road, and when he showed his phone was an old Nokia, they demanded his wallet but he escaped.Two other victims were robbed of their belongings before the pair returned to Maida Vale to offload their stolen goods – including Mr Samad’s iPhone and some foreign currency – to a man in a high-rise. In part of a victim impact statement Abdul’s girlfriend Sultana Ahmed, said: “I had known Abdul for 11 years and he had the most amazing personality. He was caring, kind, loving and everyone adored him.”I had seen Abdul grow into a beautiful human being who always wanted to help people in whatever capacity he could. “We had many plans for this year and the last thing Abdul said to me was, ‘watch, this year will be our year and we will be a family’. He also said, ‘I will give my mum and dad the perfect gift in the new year – which is you as a daughter-in-law’. They threatened them with knives and stole jewellery and money, and allegedly stabbed Mr Fierro-Berbesi in the stomach.Seconds later, they confronted Mr Samad. At first the pair rode off but turned around and shouted at him.Mr Glasgow told jurors that Mr Samad had been confronted by the teenagers in St Mary’s Terrace, in Paddington, and handed them something from his pocket.He gave them something else but Gilmaney allegedly got off the moped and stabbed him in the chest.Mr Glasgow said: “Mr Samad managed to stagger the short distance back to where his family lived but he collapsed at the door. His parents, who heard his cries, found him bleeding to death outside their home.”He died later in hospital having suffered a devastating wound to the heart. As the number of casualties mounted, police were alerted and scoured the area for the culprits.Mr Glasgow said the defendants tried to escape but were arrested after a police chase.Their pockets were stuffed with stolen valuables and CCTV captured them in the act of riding around and attacking helpless strangers, the Old Bailey heard.Mr Samad’s mobile phone was among stolen items sold on the same night but recovered during a police search of the man’s flat off Harrow Road.Abdul Samad: Beautiful human being who was adored by everyoneIn part of a victim impact statement Abdul’ Samad’s mother Layla Begum, said: “The death of my son has absolutely broken my husband, my eldest son, my entire family and me. “Had we both known that this would be our last conversation ever and that he would not call me back as he had promised that night we would have had a longer conversation. “I felt like I died with Abdul that day. He took a part of me that will never come back. “Abdul lived for his job of helping children – he was the change we needed to see in the world. The change he brought because he wanted to brighten the future for the youths of this generation. Why would someone hurt him and snatch his life away?”It still feels like a nightmare to me as I relive everything every single day, sometimes I do not feel like waking up in the morning because I fear reality.”Every time I close my eyes I remember his laughter, his infectious smile and I cry because I remember the day I went to the mortuary to see him and how my world shattered.” Troy Thomas’ flick knife Sentencing, the judge said: “You were both to admit that it had been your invariable practice for many months prior to these events to go out armed with a knife.”Your methodology was disarmingly simple. It was dark and late at night and there were people about, sometimes on their own, at other times in pairs.”Having identified a target you would drive up to them, sometimes on the pavement where they walked, with a view to either snatching their phone if they happened to be using it or alternatively by demanding they handed their property over.”In cases where they ran away you chased them on moped, cornering them and as they were obviously utterly terrified, and you had a vehicle whereas they were on foot, and there were two of you, they proved in the main to be very easy targets.”Abdul Samad was an outstanding young man in his twenties who was engaged to be married and had his whole life in front of him.”Your wicked stabbing of him has left his family utterly devastated. Whether they will be able to recover from that devastation is open to doubt.” Murder victom Abdul Samad About 20 minutes later, at 1.30am, they tried to rob Graipich Vudto in Porchester Road, and Gilmaney stabbed him in the stomach after he refused to let go of his phone, before speeding off.Minutes later, Gilmaney stabbed Silverio Pina in the arm on Princess Square, and at 1.50am, they snatched a phone out of the hand of Natevan Casinova at the junction of Portobello Road and Pembridge Road.Just after 2am, they approached Shemiqua Moore-Dingwall and her friend Matthew Calonga on Cricklewood Lane.She handed over her bag, but Gilmaney punched her in the face and just five minutes later they demanded Nelson Aparicio hand over his phone and wallet, only to be stabbed in the stomach. Thomas admitted theft, three counts of attempted robbery and six counts of robbery. He had denied four counts of wounding with intent but was also found guilty by the jury of those grievous bodily harm offences.On Friday, 15 June, they were sentenced to life imprisonment. Murderers Nathan Gilmaney, left, and Troy Thomas, right Murderers Nathan Gilmaney, left, and Troy Thomas, right Troy Thomas' flick knife As he was led into the cells Gilmaney shouted “suck your mum” as Thomas stayed quiet, but neither showed any remorse during the short hearing. Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow QC said they were “highwaymen of the 21st Century who thought they had the right to threaten and rob whoever they found, who attacked their targets in a brazen and shocking manner and who stabbed their victims often for no reason other than simple aggression and blood lust”.He said the pair had both armed themselves with a knife and set out on Gilmaney’s moped to steal wallets, phones and valuables to sell on.One of their victims was Mr Samad, who died in his family’s arms having been stabbed for an iPhone. The four-hour spree on London’s streetsThe spate of robberies began at 10.30pm in Maida Vale when they approached Nazmul Chowdhury and demanded he handed over his belongings.After spotting a knife he fled, but they chased him and mounted the pavement, and as he tried to board a bus to escape Gilmaney stabbed him in the back.An hour later in Paddington the pair attacked Venezuelan Ehimer Fierro-Berbesi and his elderly aunt Ana Fierro-Berbesi who were sat outside their home. read more

Complaint over Limerick crime scene Irish Examiner ad not upheld

first_imgA COMPLAINT THAT an Irish Examiner ad featuring a photograph of part of Limerick with police tape across it was “offensive” has not been upheld.The ad had been on display in June near Colbert Station for just a few hours before it was torn down.At the time, Irish Examiner editor Tim Vaughan denied that the city was being targeted by the paper, saying that the ad had been misinterpreted as focusing solely on Limerick, when the newspaper was actually publishing a national investigation series.The complaintThe complaint to the Advertising Standards of Ireland (ASAI) was in relation to the advertisement that featured a photograph of King John’s Castle in Limerick with images of yellow police tape stating “crime scene do not cross” across the billboard.The headline stated; “Just how safe is Limerick”, while text under the crime scene tape stated “A county by county crime supplement. Irish Examiner. Thursday June 13 #IECrime.”The complainants considered that the advertisement was offensive and misleading.They said it implied that there were high levels of crime in Limerick which they said was not supported by data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO).They also believed it was perpetuating a stereotype of Limerick and its citizens which was inaccurate and misleading.The Limerick Communications Office complained that the advertisement was “irresponsible, ill-conceived and offensive, portraying misleading negative publicity and creating fear in the minds of visitors due to its location at the main bus/train station”.The ASAI said the complainants said they “felt it reinforced unfair and untrue negative perceptions by depicting an image of one of the city’s main tourist attractions covered with crime scene tape as if a major crime had been committed which was not true”.The responseThe Irish Examiner said that they regularly run ‘special investigation’ features.They said they pre-promote each special investigation to draw the public’s attention to them, and they were surprised by the reaction from Limerick to the ad.They said they had decided to feature several locations in Munster:because the Special Investigation covered the detailed crime statistics for each county and city. They had therefore produced regionalised versions of the advertisements for Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford, as well as Limerick. They pointed out that it was clear from the advertisement that there they would be publishing a crime supplement on a county by county basis.They had posted all six versions of the poster in the newspaper, on social media sites and online discussion fora “to demonstrate that the campaign was not focused solely on Limerick”.They considered that to have excluded Limerick from the regionalisation of the campaign and to have treated Limerick differently to all other Munster Counties would have been wrong.The advertisers also said it was never their intention to cause any offence to Limerick or any other residents, and that the Irish Examiner “had always stood out by seeking to portray a much more positive view of Limerick than that portrayed by other media”.Because of concern, they ceased the posting of the campaign mid-cycle, and had the existing posters covered up.Not upheldThe ASAI’s complaints committee noted that the Irish Examiner had not posted all the posters initially planned for, and had covered those already posted.It also noted that number of complainants had referred to the fact that crime statistics for Limerick were falling.They did not, however, consider that the advertisement suggested that they were particularly high as compared with other cities and did not consider that the advertising was misleading.On the question of offence, the committee noted that a number of the posters in the overall campaign portrayed iconic locations including the Rock of Cashel, “but that these had not generated complaints to the ASAI from the other counties involved”.They concluded that while they understood the concerns expressed by the complainants from Limerick:they did not consider that the content of the posters could cause grave or widespread offence within the meaning of Section 2.15 of the Code.Read: Irish Examiner editor defends Limerick crime billboard>last_img read more

In the Audience Development Sector Digital Skills Abound But Database Knowledge Is

first_imgAs traditional publishing companies adapt to the e-media space, it’s necessary that they evolve with enough rapidity that the transition seems effortless to readers and advertisers. “Audience development” is a term coined by companies looking to do so, and newly-formed AD roles are often filled by staff found outside the traditional publishing sector.Nick Cavnar, vice president of circulation and database development with Hanley Wood Business Media, has been with the company for nine years. Cavnar says that while there is a traditional circulation group in charge of controlled circ for Hanley Wood’s magazine audiences, his role has changed during his tenure.While still involved with the direct marketing that he says used to “be the core of the circ job, [as] the primary business was on the creative side of marketing,” Cavnar finds that the database for magazine/newsletter subscribers and registrants for other events is where he is now focused.He explains, “Not only building the audience, but making the audience accessible for all the communication we may need.” With a new round of hires from the e-media world (which he defines as individuals who have dealt with a strictly online audience) in Hanley Wood’s online search group, Cavnar observes an unsettling pattern. “Frequently, it’s just a big emphasis on traffic, getting as many e-mail addresses as possible. Understanding how to tie everything together around the individual, the identification, the demographic information, how to store all of that and make that accessible is a skill that we really have developed more highly on the traditional magazine side.”On the e-media side, clickthrough rate is paramount. “I see people coming from the e-media world who have very little understanding of databases because everything is driven around traffic, not necessarily registering users,” says Cavnar. “You need to get people to register, give them incentives, understand behaviors on how people respond to certain things.”As Cavnar notes, the disconnect is apparent, “They [e-media staff] haven’t had that intensive focus on maintaining the database, watching over duplication, making sure you have the right identification on everybody.”Direct Marketing LapseIn recent years, Cavnar hasn’t dealt extensively with hiring (Hanley Wood’s market is residential construction, which has decreased from a million homes being built a year to 300,000 units) on his side of the business. He says that Hanley Wood has also invested in staff with specialized analytical skills.Cavnar partially attributes the overall loss of focus and skill set in audience development to the shift of direct marketing to direct mail. “We’re down to the point where everything became the same, simple packages, the same simple efforts. We don’t have as much of a focus on real direct marketing skills that we used to in staff.”A few tried and true tools have been found for controlled circ, he says, and there hasn’t been much innovation past this since.“I look around my organization and feel like we have holes in our skill in our direct marketing, as we try to communicate more and produce more with our audience,” Cavnar says.last_img read more

Council ponders plan to switch management of Homer permanent fund

first_imgHomer City Hall (Photo courtesy City of Homer)The Homer City Council is considering an ordinance that will end its contract with a company hired to invest money saved in the city’s Permanent Fund.The Permanent Fund was created in 2006 to hold settlement money awarded for the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. In 2010 the city was awarded $1.1 million for the spill. According to Homer Finance Director John Li the fund is now worth close to $2 million.Homer Mayor Beth Wythe says that money must be used in a very specific way.“Part of the investment is designed to earn revenues that feed into growing the fund and the other part of the fund is designed to earn revenues that can be allocated to specific expenditures or the general fund,” said Wythe.But, a city memo says the fund isn’t earning much revenue. Homer officials say the fund’s current performance isn’t good enough to justify paying U.S. Bank to manage it.“We were paying them fees to do that for us. We feel that can happen in house with no additional expense to us. So the intention was purely to bring the management in house,” said Wythe.Finance Director Li estimates the city pays U.S. Bank about $15,000 per year.If the ordinance passes the city council will create a plan that specifies who on the city staff will be in charge of the fund.City council will discuss the ordinance again at its January 25th meeting.last_img read more

Modi proposes IndoPakistan talks in letter to Imran

first_imgNarendra Modi, Imran Khan. Photo: AFPIndian prime minister Narendra Modi has called for dialogue with Pakistan in a letter to its newly elected leader and Pakistan also saw talks with its old rival as the “only way forward”, Pakistan’s foreign minister said on Monday.New Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan offered an olive branch to India after his election victory last month, proposing talks to resolve a long-standing dispute over the Kashmir region. The two leaders spoke by telephone late last month.”The Indian prime minister has sent a letter in which he congratulated Imran Khan and … he has sent a message to open talks,” Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters in the capital, Islamabad.An Indian foreign ministry official confirmed Modi wrote to Khan on Saturday and “expressed India’s commitment to build good neighbourly relations between India and Pakistan and pursue meaningful and constructive engagement for the benefit of the people of the region”.The nuclear-armed neighbours have fought three wars since the end of British colonial rule in 1947, two of them over the disputed Muslim-majority Himalayan region of Kashmir, where their two armies face off other and occasionally exchange fire.India has long accused Pakistan of encouraging separatist Muslim militants fighting Indian rule in the Indian part of Kashmir. The militants occasionally launch bloody attacks in Indian towns and cities.Afghanistan has also for years accused Pakistan of supporting Taliban militants fighting the Indian- and Western-backed Kabul government.Pakistan denies aiding insurgent groups in both Kashmir and Afghanistan.Khan, in his offer to India last month, said Pakistan was ready to respond positively to any effort on dialogue.”If India comes and takes one step toward us, we will take two,” said Khan, who had been bellicose towards India while campaigning for last month’s election.Qureshi repeated a call for a resumption of talks, which have made little progress in recent years.”We need a continued and uninterrupted dialogue. This is our only way forward,” he said.But Pakistani security policy is largely determined by its powerful military, not by civilian governments.Pakistan’s former civilian government, let by prime minister Nawaz Sharif, also sought better ties with India.Hopes soared following a surprise visit by Modi to Sharif in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore in December 2015, the first such visit by an Indian prime minister in more than a decade.But the hopes unravelled weeks later when militants attacked an Indian army base in Indian-controlled Kashmir.India blamed Pakistan for the attack. Pakistan denied that.Sharif’s efforts to improve ties with India were seen as undermining his relations with his army.Qureshi, who served as foreign minister in a previous civilian government, from 2008 to 2011, said his ministry would be in charge of foreign policy, but would take advice from “national security institutions”, drawing a comparison to the way the US Central Intelligence Agency advises the US government.He said he would soon visit Afghanistan bearing a message of friendship and “new beginnings”.last_img read more

Bean bugs found to harbor bacteria that keep them safe from an

first_img To find out what was going on with bean bugs and the Burkholderia bacteria, the researchers added the bacteria to potting soil in the lab, where they flourished. They followed that by adding fenitrothion, which the bugs ate with abandon. Next, they introduced some young bean bugs (nymphs) into the pot which ate soy bean seedlings the researchers added to the mix.In examining the guts of the bugs, the researchers found the bacteria continued to thrive and the bugs became immune to the effects of the insecticide as a result because the bacteria was eating it before it could harm them. Normally, they say, up to eighty percent of bean bugs will die from such an exposure.In further tests, the researchers found that bean bugs can harbor up to a hundred million bacteria in their guts, which tends to make them larger than others of the same species.Fortunately for farmers in Japan, however, it doesn’t appear that many of the bean bugs, or their close cousin chinch bugs, swallow much of the bacteria in the wild though. Tests done found that only eight percent of such bugs had Burkholderia bacteria in their guts in one area, and none in another, thus very few were able to develop an immunity to fenitrothion.The research team says that this symbiotic relationship between bean bugs and Burkholderia bacteria, providing the bugs with immunity from an insecticide, is the first such example ever found. But they also note that because it’s been found in this case, it’s likely occurring in other relationships as well. Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Citation: Bean bugs found to harbor bacteria that keep them safe from an insecticide (2012, April 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-04-bean-bugs-harbor-bacteria-safe.html © 2012 Phys.Org Explore further (Phys.org) — Conventional wisdom says that in order for a species of insect to develop resistance to an antibiotic, several generations have to pass, whereby genes from those that have some natural resistance pass them on to their offspring. But sometimes conventional wisdom fails to take into account how some bugs can find a work around. In this case, it’s the bean bug. Researchers in Japan have found that for Riptortus pedestris, the common bean bug, there is a much quicker path. All they have to do is ingest the Burkholderia bacteria. Doing so, the team says in their paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, makes them nearly impervious to the insecticide fenitrothion, which has historically been used to treat soy bean plants to protect them from the bugs that dine on them. center_img More information: Symbiont-mediated insecticide resistance, PNAS, Published online before print April 23, 2012, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1200231109AbstractDevelopment of insecticide resistance has been a serious concern worldwide, whose mechanisms have been attributed to evolutionary changes in pest insect genomes such as alteration of drug target sites, up-regulation of degrading enzymes, and enhancement of drug excretion. Here, we report a previously unknown mechanism of insecticide resistance: Infection with an insecticide-degrading bacterial symbiont immediately establishes insecticide resistance in pest insects. The bean bug Riptortus pedestris and allied stinkbugs harbor mutualistic gut symbiotic bacteria of the genus Burkholderia, which are acquired by nymphal insects from environmental soil every generation. In agricultural fields, fenitrothion-degrading Burkolderia strains are present at very low densities. We demonstrated that the fenitrothion-degrading Burkholderia strains establish a specific and beneficial symbiosis with the stinkbugs and confer a resistance of the host insects against fenitrothion. Experimental applications of fenitrothion to field soils drastically enriched fenitrothion-degrading bacteria from undetectable levels to >80% of total culturable bacterial counts in the field soils, and >90% of stinkbugs reared with the enriched soil established symbiosis with fenitrothion-degrading Burkholderia. In a Japanese island where fenitrothion has been constantly applied to sugarcane fields, we identified a stinkbug population wherein the insects live on sugarcane and ≈8% of them host fenitrothion-degrading Burkholderia. Our finding suggests the possibility that the symbiont-mediated insecticide resistance may develop even in the absence of pest insects, quickly establish within a single insect generation, and potentially move around horizontally between different pest insects and other organisms.

VIDEO Kyrie Irving says NBA players would give LeBron the MVP

first_img Advertisement It’s been almost a year since Kyrie Irving forced his way out of Cleveland to become the man in Boston, and escape the shadow of LeBron James. Although there’s still plenty of awkward tension between the Irving and James, in a promotional interview for his Uncle Drew Movie, Irving gave a somewhat surprising answer when it came to the topic of the league MVP voting.Irving said that he was happy for James Harden, but NBA players would have given the award to LeBron:“The peoples’ MVP was James, but the NBA MVP was definitely Bron.”It’s somewhat surprising to hear from Irving, given his strained relationship with LeBron, but having had a front row seat to watch The King for several years, no one is more qualified to answer the question.

Student lands aircraft after losing a wheel midflight

first_imgThe 21-year-old student gets a pat on the back after the successful landing Image: Ten A student with only 120 hours flying time made a dramatic landing at Mangalore Airport, north of Melbourne, on Monday, after losing one of the aircrafts three wheels mid flight.The 21-year-old man contacted his instructor after noticing a problem with his wheels and was told to fly over the airport for a visual inspection, where it was revealed that one of the wheels was missing, The Daily Mail reported.The student was then forced to circle the airport for five hours to burn off fuel, so as to decrease the chance of the aircraft catching fire in the event of a crash.When the man finally touched down, his plane turned 180 degrees before successfully stopping.Fire fighters sprayed the aircraft with foam, whilst the student was still inside, to ensure a fire did not erupt.The student was then finally escorted from the plane by emergency services, with a Senior Sergeant commenting on his “excellent landing.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: A.Nlast_img read more

On Donald Glover’s “Atlanta,” surrealism is a guiding ethos, especially for Stanfield’s cosmically lackadaisical pot-smoking philosopher Darius.Maybe topping them all is Boots Riley’s new film “Sorry to Bother You,” a comic but caustic social satire starring Stanfield as a telemarketer whose swift rise introduces him to a darkly dystopian world.Since his feature-film debut in 2013’s “Short Term 12,” the 26-year-old Stanfield has become one of the most arresting, unpredictable, and in-demand actors in Hollywood.
