Just voted for her. And I Tweeted the vote site with her name.

That should go to my Facebook page also. Hopefully we will get her a couple more votes.

The Piasecki X-49 "SpeedHawk" is an American four-bladed, twin-engined, experimental high-speed compound helicopter under development by Piasecki Aircraft. The X-49A is based on the airframe of a Sikorsky YSH-60F Seahawk, but utilizes Piasecki's proprietary vectored thrust ducted propeller (VTDP) design and includes the addition of lifting wings. The concept of the experimental program is to apply the VTDP technology to a production military helicopter to determine any benefit gained through increases in performance or useful load.

"SpeedHawk" is a concept aircraft based on applying X-49A compounding concepts to a production UH-60 Black Hawk offering better performance, range, and increases in useful load. The "SpeedHawk" aircraft includes an SPU (third engine), high forward-swept wing concept, a 45-inch "fuselage plug" cabin extension, and several other drag reducing and performance-oriented improvements, including a rotor hub fairing, landing gear streamlining, and a fly-by-wire flight control system.

Universal cancer vaccine on horizon after genetic breakthrough

By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor
1 June 2016 • 8:10pm

A universal cancer vaccine is on the horizon after scientists discovered how to rewire immune cells to fight any type of disease.

The potential new therapy involves injecting tiny particles of genetic code into the body which travel to the immune cells and teach them to recognise specific cancers.

Although scientists have shown previously that is it is possible to engineer immune cells outside the body so they can spot cancer it is the first time it has happened inside cells.

And because the genetic code could be programmed for any cancer, it means the technique could be universal. All doctors would need is the genetic profile of the tumour to make a custom-made vaccine which as well as fighting the disease, would prevent it ever returning

Test in mice showed that the vaccine triggered a strong immune response while trials in three skin cancer patients demonstrated that the treatment could be tolerated.

“The vaccines are fast and inexpensive to produce, and virtually any tumour antigen can be encoded by RNA,” said lead author Prof Ugur Sahin, managing director of Translational Oncology at the University Medical Centre of the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany.

“The approach introduced here may be regarded as a universally applicable novel vaccine class for cancer immunotherapy.”

The team focused on a class of immune cells call dendritic cells which are constantly on the look-out for foreign invaders in the body. Once a dendritic cell spots a rogue cell like cancer, it captures molecules from the surface and presents it to killer T-cells to instruct it to begin fighting the disease.

However cancer cells look very similar to normal cells and so the immune system often avoids them.

The new technology involves placing a small piece of genetic code in a nanoparticle and giving it a slightly negative charge so it is drawn to dendritic immune cells in the spleen, lymph nodes and bone marrow.

Once there it orders the creation of a cancer molecule – known as an antigen – which is then used as a biological mugshot so that immune cells know what to look out for.

The authors proved that it triggers a strong T-cell response and starts fighting tumours.

Dr Aine McCarthy, Cancer Research UK’s senior science information officer: “By combining laboratory-based studies with results from an early-phase clinical trial, this research shows that a new type of treatment vaccine could be used to treat patients with melanoma by boosting the effects of their immune systems.

“Because the vaccine was only tested in three patients, larger clinical trials are needed to confirm it works and is safe, while more research will determine if it could be used to treat other types of cancer.

The research was published in the journal Nature.

‘Our village fed us for a year after our son died’


By Hannah Cole
3 June 2016 • 10:19am

I still find it hard to believe that two years ago, we were an ordinary, happy family. My husband, David, and our children, Holly, then three, and Oscar, one, went on holidays to France and spent our weekends at the local cricket club in Kirtlington, the Oxfordshire village where we had lived for four years.

Oscar was popular with the villagers. With his big brown eyes, blond hair and cheeky grin, he charmed them, and would tweak their noses until they fell about laughing. Holly doted on him, too – he made her laugh like no one else. But on June 2, 2014 Oscar was diagnosed with osteomyelitis, an inflammation of the bone or bone marrow.

In Oscar’s case, it was around the spine. He had always been robust so it was a shock; we’d had no idea anything was wrong until, weeks earlier, we had taken him to our GP with a fever. Doctors reassured us that Oscar just needed prolonged antibiotics. He was admitted to John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, and seemed to get better – chatting, smiling and thanking the nurses after each blood test.

But on June 18, at 16 months, he took an unexpected turn. Overnight he deteriorated rapidly, and early the next morning doctors told us he wouldn’t recover. We later learnt that this was a result of encephalitis, inflammation of the brain. It was all so sudden and impossible to comprehend.

I held it together as my parents and Holly came to the hospital to say goodbye. Then David and I held Oscar, talking to him. Hours later, he died. Returning home without him was the hardest thing I’ve done, but Holly needed us. We explained to her what had happened, after taking advice from a grief counsellor.

The next morning she bounded into our bedroom as usual. It felt impossible to continue without Oscar, but I had to for Holly. I pulled myself out of bed and went downstairs – and found a warm, fresh loaf on the doorstep with a note from my neighbour. I ate a little, touched that people were thinking of us.

Every morning as I opened my eyes, terror washed over me; every day more food arrived – soup, cottage pie, lamb tagine – all with notes from neighbours. For a year they brought us meals twice a week, coordinating it with a roster between themselves. It honestly kept us going.

Their kindness was not only touching – it showed the great British sense of community spirit is still very much alive. In May 2015 we had another baby, a boy called Barney. Sometimes it was tough because he looked just like Oscar, with his big brown eyes and blond hair.

To keep Oscar’s legacy alive we set up a charity, Thinking of Oscar, to improve the experience of young children in hospital. Brainstorming how to raise money, I thought about my neighbours’ cooking and decided to create a book of their recipes. I wrote asking if they’d share them – and recipes poured in. I received roughly 100.

Four months on, we have sold more than 1,000 recipe books, plus many more ebooks. Along with other fundraising, we’ve raised £90,000.

Food alone will never heal our grief. But thanks to the kindness of a village, it showed us how much people cared.

Parrot singing like a canary over unsolved Michigan murder

The parents of a man shot in Michigan last year believe his pet parrot witnessed his murder and, in an extraordinary twist, might be mimicking a heated argument leading up to his death.


The African gray parrot belonged to 46-year-old Martin Duram, who was shot dead at his home near Newcosta Avenue, Ensley, on May 13 last year, report WZZM13.

Duram’s wife also sustained a gunshot wound to the head in the incident but survived. Her husband’s death is still being investigated by Michigan State Police, but no-one has yet been charged over what cops are treating as a homicide.

The case is notable for the fact that it took investigators almost an hour to realise that Duram’s wife was still alive, reported MLive.

But in a twist worthy of an outlandish whodunnit, footage of the bird named Bud has emerged appearing to show the feathered animal eerily shouting, “Don’t f**king shoot.”

Now Duram’s family have come forward to say they suspect the ramblings of the parrot, creatures notorious for mimicking their owners, may provide an insight into what happened before the shootings.

“That bird picks up everything and anything, and it’s got the filthiest mouth around,” Duram’s mother told Wood TV 8.

Duram’s father said he believes the parrot was in the room at the time his son was shot five times: “I personally believe he was there and he remembers it and he was saying it.”

Michigan State Police documents, seen by Wood TV 8, reveal that Duram’s wife Glenna is a suspect in the case, following reports she left at least three suicide notes at the scene.

However, she has reportedly denied the shooting.


Flashback!!
https://www.thedodo.com/victims-pet-parrot-helps-solve-445024746.html

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Talking-parrot-helps-UP-Police-crack-murder-case/articleshow/31057661.cms

Police in India had been short on leads during their investigation of a recent murder -- that is, until the victim’s pet, a talking parrot named Hercule, provided them with a crucial tip that ultimately helped solve the mystery.
User Image

After Neelam Sharma was found dead in her home last week in the city of Agra, detectives were unable to find any clues pointing them to the murderer. But a break in the case came when Neelam’s husband, Vijay, began to notice Hercule -- who had been in the room at the time -- suddenly acting agitated when his nephew Ashutosh came to visit after the murder.

"During discussions too, whenever Ashutosh's name was mentioned, the parrot would start screeching,” Vijay says. “This raised my suspicion and I informed the police.”

According to the Times of India, investigators acted on the parrot’s tip and brought Ashutosh in for questioning. During the interrogation, Ashutosh broke down and confessed to killing his aunt while attempting to rob the home, fearing that she would identify him to authorities.

And it goes back Farther!!!
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time an eyewitness bird has been involved in a murder case. In 1993, defence lawyers in Northern California attempted to submit evidence gleaned from victim Jane Gill’s pet parrot, Max, which they said proved their client was innocent.

A few days after Max was rescued from the scene of the crime, he was reportedly heard by a pet store owner crying out “Richard, no, no, no!”

The accused’s name was Gary.

The judge in that case ruled the bird’s testimony inadmissible.

Amazing, ahh.... but doesn't that sound a lot like the beginning of the plot of I am legend? (Nobody had cancer again, except everybody either keeled over from designer flue, or turned into flesh eating zombies, so... enter Big Will to save us all, that is: whoever survived tongue.)

huh huh huh huh
