However, with the passing of the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton on the previous Monday, the show found its emotional impetus significantly magnified. This brought fellow collaborators Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit) and Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers Band) to the scene with heavy hearts, but ready for some seriously spiritual musical healing.A Tribute To Butch Trucks On His 70th Birthday, With Thoughts On Col. Bruce HamptonThe night quickly transformed into a tribute to both Butch Trucks and Colonel Bruce Hampton, with the music of the Allman Brothers Band and the Grateful Dead to lead the way. All those in attendance could feel the magnitude of the emotions projected from the stage, and returned an inimitable energy to help heal the wounds of those affected by two great losses. On this night, music was the answer.Stranger Than Fiction: The Cosmic Curtain Call Of Col. Bruce HamptonThe first set opened with two Allman Brothers classics, “Trouble No More” and”Dreams,” followed by the Dead’s “Mr. Charlie.” From there, Warren Haynes joined the all-star lineup for a ripping performance of “Scarlett Begonias > Fire On The Mountain,” into “Whipping Post” and “Mountain Jam” to close the set.The second set opened with the Dead’s “West LA Fadeaway,” into ABB’s “Hot ‘Lanta.” Oteil Burbridge was certainly within his element, as the former bassist of the Allman Brothers and the current for Dead & Company, leading the way for “Eyes of the World” and “Elizabeth Reed.”Oteil Burbridge Pens Touching Tribute To His Musical Mentor, The Late Col. Bruce Hampton“Sugaree” turned into a triumphant “Lovelight,” which of course was the song that featured Haynes, Sipe, and Trucks on the stage at Col. Bruce’s final performance only a few days prior. Emotions ran high, matching the cosmic certainties that were lifted with the passing of Hampton during his final bow.The band returned to the stage, turning close to 5AM, for a “Hey Pocky Way” encore.Videographer John Peckham was on site with a multi-cam setup, plugged into the soundboard.

Houston-based artist and community activist Rick Lowe has been named a 2014 MacArthur Fellow.The founder of Project Row Houses, Lowe transformed 22 derelict shotgun houses in Houston’s historic Third Ward into a combined arts venue and community center for artists, single mothers, and low-income families. Twenty years and 71 structures later, Lowe’s unconventional approach has served as a model for arts-driven redevelopment projects in Dallas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. Now the MacArthur Foundation has recognized his achievements in “animating the assets of a place” by awarding him one of its iconic “genius” grants.Lowe was a Loeb Fellow at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design in 2002, where he collaborated with classmates and students on strategies for advancing his work in community development. Lowe is currently artist-in-residence at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, and is a Mel King Community Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge.
Expanding opportunities Between January 1st and February 10th, the PNC eradicated 300 hectares of illegal crops after destroying 4,966 hectares in 2015, Lt. Col. Roa Castañeda said. Aerial spraying operations, in which security forces used glyphosate, have helped authorities achieve a 57 percent decrease in coca crops in a span of 14 years. In 2014, there were 69,132 hectares of coca crops nationwide, well below the 162,510 hectares in 2000. “We are in the midst of the largest ever crop substitution, which is due to economic competitiveness because there are sectors such as cocoa beans that are having a bonanza and generating more income for farmers,” Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas explained during the forum “New Challenges for Drug Policy in Colombia”. Another successful example involves the Kogi, Arhuaco, Kankuamo, and Wiwa indigenous communities that inhabit the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, where farmers have replaced coca crops with pepper, rubber, sugarcane, and coffee. With the support of the Office of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), more than 134,000 families have benefited since 2006 by replacing their illicit crops with these products and activities such as fishing, beekeeping, crafts, and tourism. Higginbottom met with former coca farmers who have transitioned to producing cocoa, and she and Colombian Minister of Agriculture Aurelio Iragorri signed a joint declaration of intent on technical assistance and education. Colombia’s Ministry of Justice recently announced that it will support six new projects to replace illegal crops, benefiting 554 families in regions including Putumayo, Santander, Antioquia, Magdalena and Nariño. The government will support the initiative by investing around $270 million and will focus on the municipalities of Necoclí, Santa Marta, Sucre, Andes, Linares, and Valle del Guamuez. The Colombian government’s program to support the cultivation of legal crops is bolstered by security forces’ efforts to eradicate coca harvests. The Armed Forces have deployed 7,000 Troops to 21 departments throughout the country to strengthen eradication efforts, Villegas stated. Colombian security officials are emphasizing the substitution of illegal crops with legal alternatives as part of the country’s fight against drug trafficking, in concert with the Armed Forces’ continuing campaign to eradicate coca, the main ingredient used to make cocaine. By Dialogo February 29, 2016 The United States, a key partner nation, is supporting the effort by providing $5 million to support the “Cocoa for Peace” program, which will be implemented by the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “Cocoa for Peace will support Colombia’s efforts to advance the legal rural economic growth through cocoa, particularly in areas affected by conflict,” U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Heather Higginbottom said during her visit to Colombia on February 19th. During the January forum in Bogotá, Villegas discussed the benefits of eradication and substitution programs for farmers that switch from cultivating illegal coca to growing legal export products like coffee beans, yucca, papaya, and cocoa. For example, farmers make about $700 for a ton of coca leaves but can earn more than $3,000 for a ton of cocoa or $3,400 for a ton of coffee beans. “We have designed a new strategy in which more Security Companies for Eradication [Troops who will provide security] have been mobilized and a greater number of Mobile Eradication Groups were sent to areas of greater influence,” Lt. Col. Roa Castañeda told Diálogo. “This year, public forces plan to eradicate 16,279 hectares in various departments nationwide.” The Military has tripled the number of Troops in the Mobile Eradication Groups who will carry out their eradication mission in four phases. “The Armed Forces will be responsible for 22 Mobile Eradication Groups per phase, with more than 1,500 Soldiers to ensure the safety of the groups and some 2,560 uniformed personnel who will conduct eradication activities […] the Police will have 28 Mobile Eradication Groups with approximately 2,800 personnel handling security,” Villegas said. Meanwhile, Colombia’s National Police (PNC) is conducting manual eradication operations based on the density of illicit crops in the departments of Chocó, Nariño, and Guaviare, said Lieutenant Colonel José Roa Castañeda, the PNC’s Chief of Illicit Crop Eradication. The spraying strategy has been an effective tool but authorities are now emphasizing crop replacement. In 2015, Colombia suspended glyphosate spraying because the product was classified by the World Health Organization as a possible carcinogen. Success stories Eradication efforts In 2015, the Misión Chocolate organization marketed cocoa beans for export to European markets for the first time. International freight agent QL Solutions of Spain bought 25 tons of cocoa for export to Europe after verifying the product’s quality from the alternative development associations that are part of the crop substitution programs. Colombia’s new drug policy incorporates all of its successful crop substitution experiences in the fight against drug trafficking. For example, the Tarazá Cocoa Growers Association, under the framework of a Crop Substitution Program led by the United Nations, has converted the region of Bajo Cauca Antioqueño from a coca-growing area to one that produces tons of cocoa for export. Despite the successes, Colombia is still one of the world’s main coca producers, reaching 69,000 hectares in 2014, which represents a 44 percent increase over 2013, according to the latest Monitoring Report on Coca Cultivation in Colombia, released by the UNODC in November 2015. GENTLEMEN IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO ILLEGAL CROPS YOU HAVE TO HAVE MANY INCOME PROGRAMS FOR THOSE RURAL PEOPLE WHO, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO WAY TO BRING THEIR PRODUCTS TO MARKET, THAT THEY HAVE TO GROW THAT CROP BECAUSE A KILO SELLS EASILY I am not a grower of those illegal crops

Jul 18, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Researchers report that the antiviral drug oseltamivir helped mice survive infection with the H5N1 avian influenza virus, boosting hopes that the drug could be an effective weapon if the virus sparked a human flu pandemic.Up to 80% of mice treated with oseltamivir survived the infection, whereas all mice treated with a placebo died, according to a report by a team of leading influenza virus researchers in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.The team also determined that the current strain of the H5N1 virus, which has killed at least 54 people in Southeast Asia in the past 19 months, is much more virulent than the H5N1 strain that killed 6 of 18 people infected in Hong Kong in 1997.The H5N1 virus is regarded as likely to trigger a flu pandemic if it evolves into a form that could pass easily from person to person. If that happens, it will take months to produce a vaccine specific to the virus. In the meantime, oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and similar drugs, called neuraminidase inhibitors, might be the only effective medications for preventing and treating the illness, according to disease experts. Neuraminidase inhibitors block a protein that enables flu viruses to leave host cells.”We need to know whether antiviral drugs can prevent and treat avian flu, because in the early stages of a global outbreak, most people would be unvaccinated,” said Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), which sponsored the study. Fauci was quoted in an NIAID news release.The NIAID said the study is the first published research on the use of oseltamivir against the H5N1 strain now circulating in Vietnam. It was conducted at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis and authored by Hui-Ling Yen, Arnold S. Monto, Robert G. Webster, and Elena A. Govorkova.The investigators used an H5N1 strain derived from a Vietnamese patient who died. They inoculated 80 mice with the virus and treated them with one of three possible dosages of oseltamivir (0.1, 1, or 10 mg/kg of body weight per day) or a placebo. The highest dosage was proportional to the dosage humans receive when treated for the flu. Thirty mice received oseltamivir for 5 days—the same regimen as is recommended for humans—while 30 received the drug for 8 days.Survival rates for the mice depended on their daily dose and regimen length. Five of 10 mice that received 10 mg/kg/day for 5 days survived, but all the mice that received lower doses for 5 days died. Among mice on the 8-day regimen, the survival rates were 1 of 10 on the lowest dose, 6 of 10 on the middle dose, and 8 of 10 on the highest dose.”The eight-day dose of oseltamivir allowed more time for virus levels to fall and less chance for avian flu to rebound after the drug was stopped,” the NIAID said. In mice on the 5-day regimen, analysis of the lungs showed that the virus survived and grew again after the treatment ended. Most of the mice that died had severe neurologic symptoms.The researchers found that oseltamivir was less potent against the 2004 Vietnam strain of H5N1 than it had been against the 1997 Hong Kong strain in a previous mouse experiment at St. Jude’s. Therefore the investigators compared the virulence of the two strains by assessing their growth and infectivity in chicken eggs, canine kidney cells, and mice. They found significantly higher yields for the 2004 strain than the 1997 strain.”The higher brain and blood titers in mice infected with the VN1203/04 [Vietnam 2004] virus indicated a greater propensity toward systemic spread,” the report states. It adds that the higher virulence of the 2004 virus may help explain why oseltamivir didn’t work as well against it.”The H5N1 avian flu viruses are in a process of rapid evolution,” author Govorkova said in the NIAID release. “We were surprised at the tenacity of this new variant.”The researchers also did a genetic analysis to look for any emerging mutations that could make the virus more drug-resistant. They sequenced the neuraminidase and hemagglutinin genes from several viruses isolated from the mice and found no amino-acid changes.The NIAID noted that H5N1 virus was found in the spinal fluid of a Vietnamese boy who died last year, suggesting that the virus is able to infect the human brain. The authors say more research is needed to determine if a higher dosage or longer regimen of oseltamivir might stop the virus from growing in the lungs and spreading to the brain.They conclude that it is “encouraging” that the 2004 virus was sensitive to oseltamivir in mice, even though a longer treatment regimen and higher dosage were required.Yen H, Monto AS, Webster RG, et al. Virulence may determine the necessary duration and dosage of oseltamivir treatment for highly pathogenic A/Vietnam/1203/04 influenza virus in mice. J Infect Dis 2005 Aug 15;192(4):665-72 [Abstract]
Media Gush over New Study, Only to Find Same-Sex Parents More Irritated with Their ChildrenPublic Discourse 15 April 2016Family First Comment: Interesting summary by a researcher slammed simply for speaking the truth. “The children of divorce, which has been legal in the US now for many decades, have never appeared comparable—on average—to the children of stably intact households. (The same is true of adoption.) Nor did their advocates insist we agree that they are comparable. In reality, there are kids who navigate all manner of household upheaval and diversity, often emerging scathed but resilient, going on to live productive and emotionally healthy lives as adults. I know lots of them; we all do. They have lived in straight and gay households, as well as those of the rich and poor, black and white. No diligent scholar I know of has stated that same-sex couples make uniformly terrible parents whose efforts at childrearing are doomed to failure. No, what is new here is not the revelation of difference and the tacit acknowledgement that a stable, loving, married mother and father remains an optimal scenario. What’s new is that we are learning that legalized civil same-sex marriage and adoption laws are not enough. We have to agree that “the kids are fine.”A new study of 6-to-17-year-old children of female same-sex households has been rushed to publication and is now making the rounds at the typical outlets, which are proclaiming that now the social science here is truly, genuinely, totally, finally settled. The problem is that the study doesn’t really accomplish anything near what its adoring fans claim it does. In fact, it all but undermines their wish for consensus.Here’s what the new study claims: “No differences were observed between household types on family relationships or any child outcomes.”Here’s what the study actually signals (and it didn’t take a PhD to see it): female same-sex parents report more anger, irritation, and comparative frustration with their (apparently misbehaving) children than do opposite-sex parents.The study in question was published recently in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, and is based on data from the National Survey of Children’s Health, a 2011-12 effort that yielded nearly 96,000 completed surveys of parents in households with children under the age of 18.In the pecking order of good study qualities, it has several things going for it, and I am happy to give credit generously where it is due. First, it focuses on “continuously coupled” households, which were profoundly rare in my 2012 study of 18-to-39-year-old adults answering questions about the households in which they had grown up. That is optimal, no doubt about it.Second, it originates with a nationally representative sample—another big plus. However, when you start with tens of thousands of eligible cases but whittle down to comparing 95 female same-sex households with 95 opposite-sex ones, you quickly arrive at territory where statistical significance is going to be hard to locate. (Indeed, reducing sample size further and further from my original study is exactly how analysts came to proclaim that there was little statistical difference after all.) Basically, (sample) size matters. Yet this one is over twice as large as Charlotte Patterson and Jennifer Wainwright’s matched pattern studies of 44 same-sex households compared with 44 opposite-sex ones.Locating an ample sample of same-sex households with children in population-based studies remains a challenge, inflated assumptions about their real numbers in the population aside. Hence it is still hard to randomly find stably-coupled same-sex households with children almost anywhere except in newspapers and on TV. Despite these common limitations, this study would seem to be an improvement. But it dismally fails to deliver what it proclaims, and it’s no stretch to say that. Why? Several reasons, the first of which is rather stunning.Despite claims to the contrary, same-sex-couple moms display a problem in the study on a measure the authors oddly decided to label “parental stress.” That is, (presumably) lesbian mothers display notably more of it than do opposite-sex parents. The oddity I speak of is why they call the measure “parental stress” in the first place. It is not a measure of stress, and it doesn’t take a psychometrician to see it. Each parent respondent was asked how often in the past month they have:– Felt that their child is much harder to care for than most children his/her age– Felt that their child does things that really bother you a lot– Felt angry with their childThe authors label as “stress” what is far more obviously a three-measure index of irritation and anger (at the child). Why are female same-sex parents more angry at their children than opposite-sex ones? I confess I don’t know. But this study unwittingly reveals that they clearly are. The effect size, moreover, is a “moderate” one, meaning it’s not tiny.The authors even make overtures toward blaming the absent father for the irritation female same-sex parents feel at their children’s behavior. They don’t cite his absence, though. (That cannot matter, right?) Rather, they question his unknown genes and their possible influence on their child’s behavior:The children of divorce, which has been legal in the US now for many decades, have never appeared comparable—on average—to the children of stably intact households. (The same is true of adoption.) Nor did their advocates insist we agree that they are comparable. In reality, there are kids who navigate all manner of household upheaval and diversity, often emerging scathed but resilient, going on to live productive and emotionally healthy lives as adults. I know lots of them; we all do. They have lived in straight and gay households, as well as those of the rich and poor, black and white.No diligent scholar I know of has stated that same-sex couples make uniformly terrible parents whose efforts at childrearing are doomed to failure. No, what is new here is not the revelation of difference and the tacit acknowledgement that a stable, loving, married mother and father remains an optimal scenario. What’s new is that we are learning that legalized civil same-sex marriage and adoption laws are not enough. We have to agree that “the kids are fine.”People think I have it in for the LGBT community(ies). I do not. I have it in for a science that refuses to proceed honestly, and instead shelters privileged groups—as it currently is doing—with a protective shell of administrators, grant-makers, and editors. Hence the Regnerus bashing will continue until further notice. So be it. I may be unpopular—there are more important things in life than that—but about the comparative advantages of stably-married households with mom, dad, and children, I am not wrong. It will take more than smoke, mirrors, and shifty rhetoric to undo the robust empirical truth.READ MORE: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2016/04/16760/?utm_source=The+Witherspoon+Institute&utm_campaign=90e1f86c8c-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_15ce6af37b-90e1f86c8c-84094405Keep up with family issues in NZ.
