By Jeff Clark Casey Research Europe owns a sizab

first_imgBy Jeff Clark, Casey ResearchEurope owns a sizable chunk of the world’s natural resources.Over the past few decades, however, EU countries have mostly imported their resources.Outlandish? Maybe.But it was simply easier, cheaper, and most importantly it avoided most environmental conflicts.Getting through government regulation and facing off eco-friendly groups is a time-consuming and outrageously expensive business… a fool’s errand.When you can simply import and let other countries deal with all the hassle, it made a lot of sense. But things change.When no one’s got a job, it truly focuses the political agenda.Europe’s job market is a mess. Demonstrators are crying out for action, for opportunity, for jobs.And mines employ a lot of people.The trend is reversing because of Europe’s sluggish economy and the real benefits of the increase in local jobs and the leap in tax revenue that mining projects bring.Of course, local economies benefit. Hotels are full of transient engineers and specialists, grocery stores feed the workers, and bars serve liquor to quench their dusty throats.Then, of course, the government got involved…Brussels, 2011.Seeing the benefits of the jobs, income-tax revenues, and all-around political advantages, a “Raw Materials Strategy” was initiated in 2008, then revised and updated in 2010, and again in 2011.The aim was to encourage sustainable supplies of raw materials from within the EU.It calls for policies in support of domestic mining.So far, so good…In September 2011, the European Parliament adopted the “EU Raw Materials Strategy,” a generally pro-mining document, though it’s sometimes criticized by the industry for being “too bureaucratic.”“It’s positive, of course, that the political climate in Europe is at least in theory becoming more supportive of mining” So on the one hand, the government says, “Sure, go ahead,” and spends years (and no doubt millions of euros) coming up with a plan, while the other hand slaps down a bunch of rules that stifles initiative, adds massively to production costs, and once more makes mining companies think twice before they put down the millions it takes to get started.Driller killers, indeed.Yet the gold mining sector in Europe represents 16,000 direct and indirect jobs as of 2009, and that is surely growing.So for the gold, the tax, the jobs, and for more than a few political careers, mining is right up at the top of the political agenda.And despite the regulation stranglehold governments put on mining companies, they are still reopening abandoned mines and are exploring entirely new areas.For investors, that’s very positive, exciting news.Europe’s New Gold RushIn Casey Research’s BIG GOLD, we’ve been talking a lot lately about the three main zones of metallogenic significance for gold in Europe: the Iberian Pyrite Belt; the Carpathian Arc; and the Baltic Shield.The first crosses from Portugal through southern Spain.The second stretches from the Czech Republic through Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, and into Turkey.Number three, the Baltic Shield, traverses from western Russia through Finland, Sweden, and Norway.Europe’s gold mining contribution is approximately 1.2% of global mine production (though demand from the EU is roughly 15% of worldwide totals).Sweden, Finland, Spain, and Bulgaria are currently the largest gold producers in Europe. They mine about 640,000 million ounces of gold annually.Other countries with operating gold mines are Greenland, France, Greece, Romania, Portugal, Slovakia, and the UK.Among the gold companies operating in the region are Eldorado Gold (EGO) in Greece and Romania; Agnico-Eagle (AEM) in Finland; and Gabriel Resources (T.GBU) in Romania, as well as other majors and juniors across the continent.Europe’s New Frontiers2011 was a banner year for European mining.Exploration expenditures were estimated to reach approximately €400 million (US$490 million), an all-time high. The largest share of those exploration dollars was concentrated in Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Greenland.These countries, together with Poland, accounted for €288 million or two-thirds of total exploration expenditures last year.This is even more impressive when put into historical perspective.As you can see in the chart below, Nordic exploration spending has grown by almost four times in just ten years.[Source: Euromines.org]Both local and international companies are active in this region.Further, junior companies that we look at in detail in BIG GOLD are expanding rapidly; Euromines reports that in Sweden, for example, juniors account for some 50% of total exploration dollars being spent.Why has the attractiveness of the Nordic countries increased so dramatically?The area is largely underexplored, and its geological similarity to Canada, Australia, and West Africa makes the Baltic Shield a highly prospective place for new discoveries. Miners know what to expect and they already have the technology in place, so profitability for them and their investors comes that much sooner. These countries have well-developed infrastructure (roads and railways) and telecommunication.They have access to highly educated, trained, and experienced staff to support projects during all phases of mining is widely available.The attitude of both the public and politicians toward exploration and mining is generally positive, especially in the northern parts of the region, though anti-mine protests still take place. Since the area is not densely populated, the NIMBY (“not in my back yard”) factor is largely absent.Keeping the green lobby happy means keeping the mines open, operating, and creating a robust, investment-worthy business.Europeans tend to be very concerned about ecology, so environmental issues are closely watched and strictly regulated.Though most responsible miners make concerted efforts to reduce their impact on the environment, miners in Europe focus on this to a high degree.The divide between miners and environmentalists has shrunk over the past few decades due to advances in technology.But a bigger reason for the cooperation is the eroding economic situation. To a certain degree, politicians have been forced to find a more reasonable balance between conservation and the economic benefits mining can bring.Spain, for example, has its economic back to the wall, starting with a record unemployment rate of more than 24%.Astur Gold (V.AST) is working on getting the Spanish Salave gold deposit into production (which a previous company failed to do in 2005). The jobs it will bring no doubt add to the appeal; the company has received over 6,300 job applications.Management has received two of three environmental permits and hopes to finalize the third by year end. If the project is fully permitted, the economic impact on the area will be both immediate and dramatic.Will the Driller Killer Return?The biggest threats to mining in Europe are resource nationalism, significant skills shortages, and infrastructure access in certain areas (see first news item below).However, even on these issues, Europe is in a better position than many other areas.The continent has a strong tradition of transparent and stable laws, along with respect for private property, leaving few in support of outright nationalization.Western European countries also usually have well-developed infrastructure and an educated and skilled labor force.On the other hand, bureaucratic procedures, overregulation, and a dense population outside of the northern countries have worked to keep massive mine development across Europe from accelerating as it has elsewhere.Still, the carrot dangled by the mining industry looks awfully juicy…If Romania approves Gabriel Resources’ Rosia Montana gold mine, for example, the project is estimated to bring some US$30 billion of economic benefits to the country. The company hopes to mine 9.6 million ounces of gold and 51.5 million ounces of silver over 16 years. Eldorado’s Olympias and Skouries mines in the Halkidiki region will produce about 350,000 ounces of gold annually beginning in 2015. Management is spending €1.3 billion to develop the projects, which will create 1,800 jobs in a country where unemployment is close to 20%.Overall, the atmosphere for gold mining in Europe appears to be improving. Its importance is recognized in Brussels; even though only a few clumsy steps have been taken, the general attitude is making a positive shift.With the benefits mining can bring – more jobs and greater revenue – we think there will be fewer objections overall, especially in the more desperate countries. It won’t solve all their problems, but there’s no doubt it would relieve some of the fiscal pressure.From an investment point of view, it’s a region to watch. We fully expect to find increasing opportunities here.Jeff Clark is the senior editor of BIG GOLD, a monthly newsletter that follows the world’s best precious metals production and near-production companies.

When youre thirsty a swig of fresh water brings

first_imgWhen you’re thirsty, a swig of fresh water brings instant relief. But gulp down some salty sea water and you’ll still feel parched.That’s because your brain is trying to keep the concentration of salt in your body within a very narrow range, says Zachary Knight, an associate professor in physiology at the University of California, San Francisco and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.”If you experience, for example, a 10 percent change, you would be very sick,” he says. “A 20 percent change and you could die.”Knight and a team of researchers wanted to know how the brain keeps that from happening. They report the results of their search in an article published Wednesday in the journal Nature.”There has to be a mechanism for the brain to track how salty the solutions that you drink are and use that to fine-tune thirst,” Knight says. “But the mechanism was unknown.”So Knight’s team began studying brain cells known as thirst neurons.First, the team piped fresh water directly into the stomachs of some thirsty mice.”Within a minute or two, infusing water into the stomach rapidly turns off these thirst neurons in the brain,” says Chris Zimmerman, a graduate student in Knight’s lab who conducted the experiment. “And not only that,” Zimmerman says, “if we give [the mouse] access to water it doesn’t drink at all.”Next the team repeated the experiment, using salty water. And this time, the thirst neurons stayed on and the animals kept searching for fresh water that would reduce the concentration of salt in their bodies.More study revealed how the system works. Cells in the gut are constantly measuring saltiness and communicating that information to thirst neurons in the brain.”What’s really exciting about this is not only that we’ve discovered this new signal from the gut to the brain, but also that we’ve found that it has a really specific role in controlling our behavior,” Zimmerman says.A second study in Nature looks at a different system that also affects salt intake.”We wanted to know how sodium appetite is regulated by the brain,” says Yuki Oka, an assistant professor of biology at Caltech and an author of the study.The first thing Oka’s team did was use a technique called optogenetics to switch on the sodium appetite neurons.The effect on mice was immediate. “They pick up a piece of rock salt and then start eating it,” Oka says.When the team switched off the sodium appetite neurons, the animals stopped eating salt.But how does this system work when there’s no scientist flipping the switch?Previous research has shown that part of the answer involves cells that measure salt concentrations in the bloodstream.But Oka’s team figured that likely wasn’t the whole answer, because animals need only a tiny amount of sodium in their diet. So they need to stop eating salt long before concentrations in blood start rising.The scientists thought there must be a second “off switch” somewhere — one that could be flipped sooner.They found it in the animals’ taste buds.”When you put sodium-salt on top of the tongue, and then, when you taste it, that’s sufficient to suppress sodium appetite neurons,” Oka says. That’s how we know to stop eating salt before we’ve consumed a harmful dose.And sports drinks, the UCSF scientists explain, contain exactly the same concentration of sodium found in our bodies; that’s how the drinks replace sodium without triggering the brain’s “stop eating salt” response.

Doctors at Wake Forest Baptist Health have develop

first_imgDoctors at Wake Forest Baptist Health have developed an iPad app that assists in colon cancer screening tests. The software puts some decision-making power into patients’ hands. It’s called mobile Patient Technology for Health – or mPATH-CRC for short. It lets patients “self-order” a colon cancer screening test while they’re in the waiting room. Colon cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., but over one-third of those eligible to be screened don’t get the test.The National Cancer Institute has awarded $1.6 million in grant funds for further testing of the technology in clinics across North Carolina and Kentucky.Dr. David Miller is a professor at Wake Forest School of Medicine, and a leading researcher on the study. “What this grant funding will let us do is figure out how to get this iPad intervention — which we know works, we know it doubles the chance that people will complete colon cancer screening tests — and actually get it put into routine use in primary care practices,” says Miller.Miller also says that the mPATH-CRC application is an extension, not a replacement, for a physician’s advice.last_img read more

CoSchedule Launches Marketing Suite to Transform the Way Marketers Work

first_imgThe Family of Agile Marketing Tools Helps Marketers Publish More Work, Complete Projects on Time and Prove Value to StakeholdersCoSchedule, the fastest-growing marketing platform on the Inc. 5000 list and recognized on Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Content Marketing Platforms, announced its new CoSchedule Marketing Suite . The Marketing Suite helps marketers stay focused, deliver projects on time and make their team happy.The strategic shift to build a unified marketing platform is the company’s direct response to marketers’ feedback and frustration with disconnected toolsets that cause marketing teams to waste time coordinating work rather than completing it.“We surveyed more than 3,000 marketers, and they unanimously shared the need to get more work done in less time,” said Garrett Moon, co-founder and CEO of CoSchedule. “The pressure for this productivity pushes them to adopt new technologies and processes. But in reality, we hear this only leads to siloed tools and teams. They’re frustrated. At CoSchedule, we call this ‘makeshift marketing.’ It’s the wasted effort marketers spend coordinating projects, managing spreadsheets and cobbling together single-function tools.”Marketing Technology News: Verve Releases SDK 4.0 To Supercharge The Revenue-Generating Power Of In-App InventoryThe CoSchedule Marketing Suite brings together a work management, content marketing, social media management and digital asset management toolset built upon a marketing calendar foundation. This family of agile tools is designed to provide unprecedented visibility into marketing operations with a single source of truth for all marketing activities.“Our mission is to end makeshift marketing, so we decided to build a completely new way for marketers to work,” said Moon. “The CoSchedule Marketing Suite brings together all the tools that marketers need on a daily basis and puts them in one place. It’s a monumental step and an exciting evolution for CoSchedule and our customers.”Marketing Technology News: Gigapaces Partners with Tableau to Accelerate Machine Learning and Data VisualizationCoSchedule’s Marketing Calendar is the cornerstone of the Marketing Suite. The platform includes four additional product offerings that build off the calendar.Content Organizer is content marketing software to drive strategy and growth.Social Organizer is social media management software to empower marketers with everything they need from publishing to measurement.Work Organizer is team collaboration software designed to help marketers manage and automate workflows.Asset Organizer is brand new digital asset management software designed to organize digital assets and share files with stakeholders.Promoting the value proposition “the only way to organize your marketing in one place,” CoSchedule saw it necessary to add new functionality into the platform to fulfill its promise. The Social Organizer includes all-new Social Conversations Inbox monitoring capabilities for engaging with followers, which makes the software a complete social media management solution. Asset Organizer is an entirely new product to the company as well, making the Marketing Suite a complete marketing project management solution.“Prior to CoSchedule, we were using tons of different tools,” said Sadie Rudolph, public relations director at Flint Group and long-time CoSchedule customer. “We were jumping from product to product and none of the things we were doing were working together. Because everything wasn’t in one place, I didn’t have a lot of visibility into what our team was working on.Marketing Technology News: Invoca Survey Finds Over Half of Consumers Only Offered Automated Communications By Brands Feel Frustrated When They’re Unable to Speak with a Live Person“The CoSchedule Marketing Suite lets us know what everyone is working on and when it’s going to get done, and it’s allowed us to consistently meet our deadlines,” said Rudolph. “Because we have visibility into every project, we’ve been able to drastically reduce wasted effort and produce more content.” Content Marketing PlatformsCoscheduleCoSchedule Marketing SuiteGartnerMagic QuadrantMarketing TechnologyNews Previous ArticleAmperity and Snowflake Partner to Help Joint Customers Power Customer 360 InitiativesNext ArticleConstant Contact Unveils New WooCommerce and Shopify Offerings at 2019 Internet Retailer Conference CoSchedule Launches Marketing Suite to Transform the Way Marketers Work PRNewswireJune 28, 2019, 4:52 pmJune 28, 2019 last_img read more

Scientists reveal insights into how a common Alzheimers risk gene disrupts brain

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Jun 27 2019Insights into how a gene that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease disrupts brain cells have been revealed by scientists.Brain tissue from people with Alzheimer’s showed that a protein called clusterin builds up in vital parts of neurons that connect cells and may damage these links.Scientists say the findings shed light on the causes of the disease and will help to accelerate the search for a treatment.The study, led by Professor Tara Spires-Jones at the University of Edinburgh, focused on synapses – connections between brain cells that allow the flow of chemical and electrical signals. These signals are vital for forming memories and are key to brain health, experts say.Related StoriesResearchers discover gene linked to healthy aging in wormsNew therapy shows promise in preventing brain damage after traumatic brain injuryPosterior parietal cortex plays crucial role in making decisions, research showsResearchers showed that synapses in people who had died with Alzheimer’s contained clumps of clusterin, which could contribute to dementia symptoms. These synapses also contained clumps of amyloid beta, the damaging protein that is found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s.People with a common risk gene, called apolipoprotein E4, had more clusterin and amyloid beta clumps in their synapses than people with Alzheimer’s without the risk gene.Those without dementia symptoms had even less of the damaging proteins in their synapses.The discovery was made using powerful technology that allowed the scientists to view detailed images of more than one million synapses. Individual synapses are around 5000 times smaller than the thickness of a sheet of paper.Synapse loss in Alzheimer’s disease was previously established, but the clumping of damaging proteins together in synapses was unknown until now because of difficulties in studying them due to their tiny size.Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting around 500,000 people in the UK. It can cause severe memory loss and there is no cure.Professor Spires-Jones, Programme Lead at the UK Dementia Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh, said: We have identified another player in the host of proteins that damage synapses in Alzheimer’s disease. Synapses are essential for thinking and memory, and preventing damage to them is a promising target to help prevent or reverse dementia symptoms. This work gives us a new target to work towards in our goal to develop effective treatments.” Source:University of EdinburghJournal reference:Spires-Jones, T. et al.

New tool serves as digital logbook for drone users

The UAS User Log can be accessed from any internet-connected device, including tablets and smartphones. Credit: Purdue University Worried about being on Facebook? Some options explained The UAS User Log is a digital log book available around the world to serve those using UAS, or drones, for research, crop production, spray applications and other activities. The logbook provides options to interactively record the date, time and location of a flight, the make, model and registration information of the device, status of battery charge, type of flight (autonomous or manual), types of sensors used and data collected, safety precautions taken, weather during the flight and other related information.Dharmendra Saraswat, an associate professor in Purdue’s Department of Agricultural & Biological Engineering, led the team that included researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, Washington State University and Texas A&M University.”We’ve lacked a system to provide UAS users in agriculture with a way to record information about their flights, sensors and maintenance issues,” Saraswat said. “Thus, creation of a common protocol for UAS operations for various research- and production-related applications is an effort to plug that gap and bring standardization to flight data collection.” Explore further Citation: New tool serves as digital logbook for drone users (2018, April 17) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-04-tool-digital-logbook-drone-users.html A Purdue University researcher led development of a free, web-based application that will allow those using unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to easily log their flight-related data. Provided by Purdue University Users can access the UAS User Log application from any device that connects to the internet, including smartphones, tablets, and desktop and laptop computers. Once loaded, the application does not need an internet connection or mobile data to function since the information logged is stored on the user’s device.Internet connection is required to access weather data and for crowdsourcing sensor specifications among the community of users. Once all the relevant information is recorded, the user is provided an option to save a copy on their devices (smartphones, tablets or laptops/desktops). Users can also upload any previously saved file, edit relevant data and save the updated file as a record for any subsequent flights. All flights can be time-stamped and saved independently.Saraswat said he can envision users employing the logbook for everything from tracking flights for research and business uses to gauging the life of batteries.There is also a feedback option that allows users to communicate with Saraswat and his team to make suggestions for improvements or elements that should be added.”I’m certain that at some point in time, this ecosystem is going to grow, and we’ll also see many features added to this tool,” Saraswat said. Dharmendra Saraswat led a team that developed the UAS User Log, a web-based application that stores digital flight records for those using unmanned aerial systems.

But until now, the “ravioli” star (also called the cookie star) was a bit of a nobody. Even though scientists have known of the ravioli star for some time, only recently did the creature get a common (non-Latin) name, Christopher Mah, an invertebrate biologist at the Smithsonian Museum at Natural History, told Live Science. Instead, the starfish was known only by its formal scientific name, P. dentatus. [Photos: See the World’s Cutest Sea Creatures] That’s because until now, people rarely had the chance to observe the starfish in its natural habitat. Most of what scientists know about the ravioli star comes from specimens that were already dead, Mah said. Now, with the advent of remotely operated vehicles like NOAA’s Deep Discoverer, which captured rare footage of ravioli stars, everyone has virtual access to these creatures. It was sometime in the last year that Mah began hearing the names “cookie star” and “ravioli star” bouncing around the internet. “It’s just kind of amusing to me,” Mah said, “[The name] just took off so quickly.” The starfish isn’t new or unusual — it has existed at the depths of the ocean for much longer than its moniker. But the way Twitter is interacting with the ravioli star and other marine wonders is completely novel, Mah said. Just the fact that the internet has bred a new name for these creatures is evidence of a new kind of citizen science, he added. That’s a good thing. “Any kind of connection that I think the public has with natural history, with nature is important,” Mah said. As for the ravioli star, its moment in the spotlight is only just beginning. This is an exciting moment for deep-sea creatures like the pasta doppelganger, Mah said. For the first time, scientists have the chance to study how they interact with their environment — what they eat, how they reproduce and how they navigate their underwater world. On the Deep Discoverer’s most recent dive, for instance, the ROV captured another image of a group of ravioli stars ganging up on a sea sponge (a sea creature with no skeleton and a soft, porous body). Until now, scientists knew virtually nothing about this sea star’s biology. This is the Deep Discoverers seventh dive on an expedition called Windows to the Deep. In Photos: The Wonders of the Deep Sea If this starfish is making your mouth water, you’re not alone. When a photo of Plinthaster dentatus went viral on Twitter last week, pasta-lovers did a double take — the sea star looked just like a piece of ravioli.

And this one: Some people think we should send messages into space even if we don’t receive a message first. What is your opinion? — This is a bad idea. We should ban people from sending messages. — There should be rules or laws about who can send messages and what they can say. — Anybody who wants to send a message into space should be allowed to do so. So, what are the odds we’d really need answers to these questions? To date, a lot of effort and money have gone into listening for alien signals. For instance, Breakthrough Listen’s team at the University of California, Berkeley’s SETI Research Center released 1 million gigabytes of data related to such a quest. The scientists had looked for anomalous pings in both radio and optical wavelengths emitted by 1,327 star systems. The result? None of those signals could be traced to anything other than human sources. Just this month, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) celebrated 50 years of looking for and studying UFO phenomenon. The nonprofit relies on volunteers to help find and identify these objects. Though the members insist that “we are not alone,” they have yet to spot conclusive evidence to support that claim. Even the U.S. government has suggested it’s serious about investigating bizarre craft of unknown origin. In 2017, the Pentagon confirmed that a secret “UFO” office — called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program — had spent $22 million over five years to study such baffling aeronautical reports. And even though funding ended in 2012, the program apparently remained alive. More recently, declassified videos have shown U.S. Navy pilots talking about seeing UFOs that demonstrated unexplainable properties. “Despite the fact that we [have] never detected a signal from extraterrestrial intelligence, this does not mean that it is never going to happen. What if it does?” Martin Dominik, an astrophysicist at the University of St. Andrews in the United Kingdom, told Live Science in an email. “The SETI community are currently rethinking this issue in the wake of the spread of social media and fake news. If there are consequences for the wider public, the decision about where to go becomes a political one rather than a scientific one,” said Dominik, who is also a UKSRN member. What have researchers learned so far from the survey responses? “I do not want to release any data at this moment, because it would bias the views of those who are still to respond,” Dominik said. Check out the survey and let the SETI group know what you’d do upon contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. 80 Years Ago, ‘News’ of an Alien Invasion Terrified Radio AudiencesEighty years ago today (Oct. 30), radio audiences were stunned by a purported news broadcast describing an “alien invasion” in New Jersey.Volume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Better Bug Sprays?01:33关闭选项Automated Captions – en-US facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65848-alien-contact-seti-survey.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0002:1202:12Your Recommended Playlist01:33Better Bug Sprays?01:08Why Do French Fries Taste So Bad When They’re Cold?04:24Sperm Whale Befriends Underwater Robot00:29Robot Jumps Like a Grasshopper, Rolls Like a Ball00:29Video – Giggly Robot02:31Surgical Robotics关闭  UFO Watch: 8 Times the Government Looked for Flying Saucerscenter_img 9 Strange, Scientific Excuses for Why Humans Haven’t Found Aliens Yet The quest to identify UFOs and even find intelligent life on other worlds has been heating up for decades … to no avail.

Turns out, there’s no real plan for how humanity would respond, let alone how we would deal with such a monumental discovery. The U.K. SETI Research Network (UKSRN) wants to change that by asking Earthlings their views on the search for aliens and how they’d react to a discovery.
