Stem Cell Research Launches into the Ethical Unknown, Full Steam Ahead

first_imgNo one knows where stem cell research will lead.  Some hope for miracle cures.  Some fear horrendous abuses and ethical nightmares.  But states and nations, apparently more concerned over priority and prestige, are fighting to the head of the pack after the California Proposition 71 gun fired last fall.    With $3 billion in taxpayer loans at their disposal, the stealthily-named new California Institute for Regenerative Medicine is beginning to take shape, apparently unconcerned that “the debate has shifted from ethics and costs to how the enterprise will operate,” wrote Constance Holden in the 14 January issue of Science.1  In last week’s issue,2 she added that Prop. 71 has had a “seismic effect” on other states.  “Wait for me!” seems to be the attitude of Wisconsin, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland and Illinois, while other states are trying to ban research on stem cells (Science Now reports that governor Mitt Romney is trying to stop the advance in Massachusetts).  The rivalry for stem cell funding is having a major shakeup on the role of the National Institutes of Health, comparable to the “breakup of the Roman Empire,” Holden writes.     Much of the hurry comes from a desire to beat the Asians, wrote Dennis Normile and Charles C. Mann in the same issue last week.3  “Less encumbered by societal restrictions on embryonic stem cells,” they remarked, “scientists in the developing countries of Asia are giving Western researchers a run for their money.”  In Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China – indeed, across all Asia – “there is little of the conflict with prevailing religious and ethical beliefs that has Western countries hesitating.”  No one seems to be asking whether to do it, but only how to do it.  The mood in Asia is described by Normile and Mann:Governments are ramping up funding for both basic and applied stem cell work, setting up new institutes, programs, and grant schemes, and providing incentives for private companies to join the effort.  Giving these efforts a further boost, the region also has legions of lab workers willing to log long hours, and increasing numbers of expatriate scientists are returning home to work in the flourishing environment.With that kind of money and competition driving stem cell research, the concerns of a few ethicists are unlikely to be given the time of day.  Although some of these enterprises specifically ban human cloning, the creator of Dolly the sheep, Ian Wilmut (Kings College, London) has been granted a license in the UK to clone early stage human embryos for medical research, reports the BBC News.  “Those opposed to the research said the work is unethical, unnecessary and a step toward full blown human cloning,” the article says, and the ProLife Alliance stated emphatically, “All human cloning is intrinsically wrong and should be outlawed.”  But it’s hard to beat the emotional appeal of proponents who argue that the procedure might help cure motor neuron disease.  Meanwhile, other possible nightmare scenarios with the new biotechnology make occasional headlines, like this debate over human-animal hybrids in National Geographic News.  The technology is outpacing any consensus on where to draw the line.    Ongoing successes with adult stem cells, which have no ethical problems, are getting drowned out in the fanfare over embryonic stem cells.  EurekAlert reported that a new source of stem cells in umbilical cord blood shows promise for bone marrow transplants and tissue repair, for instance, and Nature Science Update just reported that in heart tissue, long thought irreplaceable, certain “cardiac progenitor cells” are capable in fact of regrowing heart muscle, promising hope for heart-attack survivors.  A heart-warming yet heart-breaking report in World Magazine Feb. 5 describes near-miraculous cures being made with adult stem cells; trouble is, such proven advances are being passed over in the rush to fund embryonic stem cell research.  “The NIH, which bankrolls innovative medical research in the United States, has funded only 30 projects involving stem cells from umbilical cords,” reports Lynde Langdon.  “In contrast, it has funded 634 projects involving embryonic stem cells.”  This lopsided funding of embryonic stem cell research has yet to show one successful medical benefit.1Constance Holden, “California’s Bold $3 Billion Initiative Hits the Ground Running,” Science, Vol 307, Issue 5707, 195 , 14 January 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.307.5707.195].2Constance Holden, “U.S. States Offer Asia Stiff Competition,” Science, Vol 307, Issue 5710, 662-663 , 4 February 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.307.5710.662].3Dennis Normile and Charles C. Mann, “Asia Jockeys for Stem Cell Lead,” Science, Vol 307, Issue 5710, 660-664 , 4 February 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.307.5710.660].If you thought abortion was bad, and should have been stopped at the starting gate, wait till you see what the mad scientists might do with their latest tinker toys, genetically modified human embryos.  What started as moral compassion for poor women in the early debates over abortion has turned into a multibillion dollar industry, replete with lawyers and SIGs who fight any attempt to restrict their business, as concerned citizens gasp at bags full of unborn babies in trash bins, and senators investigate black markets for body parts.  How many of you believe that, this time, the proponents of this new crusade really have the interests of the suffering in mind?  Oh – and which religious tradition, did they say, is the only one “hesitating” at the sight of the leaking dike?How will we explain this to our children?  Will they even care?(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

RCMP present rural crime stats to PRRD Board

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Members from the RCMP detachments in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, and Tumbler Ridge gave presentations to the Peace River Regional District Board outlining regional crime statistics from last year.Speaking first, Fort St. John detachment commander Insp. Mike Kurvers said that officers had seen an overall decrease in service calls in the rural area, from 3,246 in 2016 to 3,200 last year. He said that overall, most types of crime had decreased, while others increased slightly.Insp. Kurvers said that rural arsons dropped significantly last year compared to the year prior, from 21 to six. Property crime and violent crime saw substantial decreases year-over-year with the exception of sex offences. Those increased from seven to 22 in the past year. The number of vehicle thefts, drug-related offences, and impaired drivers also increased from 2016 to 2017. Dawson Creek’s acting detachment commander Sgt. Mike Richard said that rural calls in the South Peace have increased 33 percent compared to 2016, with police being called out 1,917 times last year.  Sgt. Richard said that vehicle thefts were a big problem in 2017, with an average of 15 to 17 vehicles being stolen every month. He did attribute at least part of that to a large chop-shop operation in Doe River, north of Rolla, which was shut down by police last year.Sgt. Scott Hromadnik said that the Chetwynd RCMP had a busy 2017, which he attributed to an uptick in oil and gas industry activity near his community. Sgt. Hromadnik also said that his detachment has been focusing recently on traffic enforcement, as roads in the Chetwynd area claimed seven lives last fiscal year.last_img read more

Keita BatesDiop leads Ohio State mens basketball to victory in final nonconference

Correction 12/28: The score has been updated to reflect the correct final score. OSU sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) dribbles the ball during a game against Northern Illinois on Dec. 16 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorPowered by a career-high 24 points and 10 rebounds from sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop, the Ohio State men’s basketball team defeated the South Carolina State Bulldogs 73-57 on Sunday night in Columbus.Bates-Diop scored 17 of his 24 points in the first half, including five 3-pointers, which powered the Buckeyes to a 34-21 halftime lead that they never looked back from.Bates-Diop said it felt great to see so many of his shots fall in after several rattled out the previous game against Mercer.“My teammates got me in the right spots, I was really open most of the time and I just knocked down shots,” he said.OSU coach Thad Matta said although the team earned its fourth win in a row, he wasn’t happy with the number of turnovers in the first half.“The first half we weren’t very sharp at all, of the eight turnovers, five or six were unforced,” Matta said. “We’re not a very good offensive team when we’re not taking care of the ball.” Matta commended freshman guard A.J. Harris for getting the ball rolling.“A.J. really came in and kinda lit the wick for us,” Matta said.South Carolina State coach Murray Garvin said Harris’ play was the difference in the game.“He changed the tempo of the game,” Garvin said. “He’s so quick (that) he can turn off the lights and be in the bed before it gets dark.” Harris accounted for six of OSU’s 19 assists on the night, which were highlighted by five alley-oops. The Dayton native said things are finally starting to click for him in his debut campaign.“My goal is to just share the ball more,” Harris said. “So that’s all we’ve been practicing, is just sharing the ball more, making the extra pass to our teammates that are open. Just making the extra pass. I was seeing the floor really well and my big man was running, my two and three guards were running, so it really opened up the floor for me.”The Buckeyes’ next game is scheduled against the Minnesota on Wednesday, the first of the Big Ten season. Bates-Diop said the conference season brings on a whole new mentality, one that the team should be ready for come next Wednesday.“I think we’re finally hitting our stride,” Bates-Diop said. “Going into the Big Ten, that’s going to be huge for us.”The Buckeyes saw improved performance from its 3-point shooters, as OSU shot 36 percent from three after shooting just 13.6 percent against Mercer.Matta said he knows his team has to be more consistent for it to be able to compete in the Big Ten.“We’ve shown that we can play some really good basketball, and we’ve shown we can play some really bad basketball,” Matta said. “We’re a team that has to be dialed in to everything that we’re doing. The thing that excites me is we’ve seen one through 12, guys can play some really high-level basketball. Finding that consistency is going to be what the next 10 weeks is about.” Game notesFreshman forward Mickey Mitchell scored his first points as a Buckeye in his second game after being declared eligible by the NCAA.OSU’s largest lead was 24 points.OSU outrebounded South Carolina State 50-32.OSU had nine blocked shots while the Bulldogs failed to register one. read more

Former Ohio State football players one step closer to NFL after draft

Senior running back Carlos Hyde (34) walks of the field during a game against Illinois Nov. 16 at Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 60-35.Credit: Ritika Shah / Asst. photo editorLives have changed  forever for 256 players as they were selected in the 2014 NFL Draft.Six of those players are former Ohio State Buckeyes.The first former Buckeye taken off the board was linebacker Ryan Shazier, who was selected 15th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round Thursday night. He became the ninth former OSU linebacker and 68th Buckeye ever taken in the first round.Shazier, who was a first-team Associated Press All-American in his final season at OSU, totaled a Big Ten conference-high with 143 tackles to go along with six sacks.Cornerback Bradley Roby, who joined Shazier as one of 30 prospects invited to New York for the draft, was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 31st overall pick in the first round.Roby became the first OSU defensive back taken in the first round of the draft since Malcolm Jenkins was selected by the New Orleans Saints with the 14th overall pick in 2009.The Broncos, who dropped Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8 to the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2, have since bolstered their secondary by not only drafting Roby, but also signing former New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib to a six-year, $57 million contract in March.Just as they did in the first round, the Buckeyes produced two picks in the second round, as running back Carlos Hyde and offensive lineman Jack Mewhort came off the board.Hyde was selected 57th overall by the San Francisco 49ers, who are coached by former University of Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh.The former Buckeye running back became the first 1,000-yard rusher under OSU coach Urban Meyer and was named the Big Ten Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year in 2013. Hyde finished his senior campaign with 1,521 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground.Mewhort was selected just two picks later with the 59th overall pick by the Indianapolis Colts.The selection of Mewhort marked the third straight year that an OSU tackle has been selected in the draft, following in the footsteps of Reid Fragel – drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013 – and Mike Adams, who the Pittsburgh Steelers selected in 2012.Mewhort was a three-year starter in his time as a Buckeye and was named a first-team All-American by ESPN.com during his senior season in 2013.Another Buckeye was not taken until the fifth round when center Corey Linsley was selected 161st overall by the Green Bay Packers.Linsley anchored an offensive line that ranked fifth nationally in 2013 in rushing, averaging 308.6 yards per game and breaking school records for points in a single season with 637, as well as touchdowns scored with 87.Linsley graduated from OSU with a degree in economics in December.Rounding out the former Buckeyes selected in the 2014 draft was safety Christian Bryant, who was selected 241st overall in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams.Bryant, who was named a team captain prior to the 2013 season, suffered a season-ending ankle injury during the fifth game of the year against Wisconsin Sept. 28., a game won by OSU 31-24. At the time of the injury, Bryant ranked third on the team in tackles with 22.Bryant, who was a three-year starter for the Buckeyes, finished his OSU career with 171 total tackles to go along with two interceptions, 23 pass breakups and three forced fumbles.The Buckeye safety petitioned the NCAA for a medical redshirt in January, but was turned down and entered the draft.Although six Buckeyes were drafted to NFL rosters, several draft-eligible players were not selected during the draft.According to multiple reports, many of the former Buckeyes not drafted have found homes in free agency.Some of the players signing in free agency took to Twitter to announce their new teams, one of them being wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown who announced his signing with the Carolina Panthers saying, “Here I come Carolina,” via his personal account @phillybrown10. Reportedly joining him in Carolina will be offensive lineman Andrew Norwell.Offensive lineman Marcus Hall confirmed with  The Lantern Sunday in an email that he has signed with the Indianapolis Colts, which reunites him with Mewhort.  Safety C.J. Barnett’s signing with the New York Giants was confirmed via Twitter by his signing agency IFA.Kicker Drew Basil also took to Twitter late Saturday night announcing he has signed with the Atlanta Falcons. Wide receiver Chris Fields also used social media to announce an agreement with the Washington Redskins.Running back Jordan Hall has earned a tryout with the Steelers according to multiple reports and quarterback Kenny Guiton remains unsigned as of Sunday morning. read more
