    Info Mag Koyal Group DNA Discovery Reveals Surprising Dolphin Origins

    A well-known dolphin species, the clymene dolphin, arose from mating between two separate and distinct dolphin species, report genetics researchers.

    Also known as the "short-snouted spinner dolphin," the clymene dolphin (Stenella clymene) grows to nearly seven feet (2.1 meters) long and dwells in deep waters in tropical and temperate parts of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Evolutionary biologists have seen other such hybrid species elsewhere in the animal kingdom. The new discovery, reported in the journal PLOS ONE by a team led by marine biologist Ana Amaral of Portugal's University of Lisbon, adds to increasing evidence of such cross-breeding commonly leading to new species, even in the wide-open oceans.

    Clymene dolphins feed mostly at night when squid and fish come to the surface of the water. The short-snouted dolphin gets its name from the ocean nymph Clymene of Greek mythology. (See "Dolphins Have 'Names,' Respond When Called.")

    Researchers initially thought the clymene dolphin was a subspecies of the spinner dolphin (Stenella longirostris). However, in 1981, a closer look at the clymene's anatomy revealed it was a distinct species.

    But experts remained uncertain about the clymene's relationship with its close relatives. Although its outward appearance and behavior are more similar to those of the spinner dolphin, its skull features closely resemble those of the striped dolphin (Stenell...

    Vrije markten zijn frauduleuze markten - Concurrerende of zelfregulerende markteconomieën bevorderen dynamische creatieve destructie en wedergeboorte — geleid door de behoeften van mensen, wensen en verlangens, dus goed leiding economische vooruitgang. Historisch, concurrerende markteconomieën zijn een relatief nieuwe economisch systeem, en terwijl zeer productief zijn geweest, ze zijn niet zelfvoorzienend, onstabiel zijn en vereisen aanzienlijke overheidssteun en verordening om goed te functioneren.

    Zelfregulerende markteconomieën zijn echter beter dan andere politiek-economische systemen — zoals dictatoriale fascisme of autocratische communisme — echter de Braziliaanse hen kunt verwaarlozen.

    Geschiedenis van markteconomieën

    Markteconomieën zijn onbestaand tijdens primitieve tijden, en zelfs tijdens de feodale tijden, markten handel van lokale goederen en blijven klein, met geen neiging om te groeien. Externe buitenlandse markten dragen alleen speciale items — zoals specerijen, gezouten vis en wijn. Buitenlandse handel begint niet in feodale samenlevingen, tussen individuen, maar is alleen gesanctioneerd door burgerleiders — tussen hele gemeenschappen.

    Feodale tijden vermengen markten voor lokale communautaire goederen niet met de markten voor goederen die afkomstig zijn uit de verte. Lokale en externe buitenlandse markten verschillen in grootte, herkomst en functie — zijn strikt gescheiden, en...

  • Shinzo Abe is giving new hope to Japan’s unappreciated entrepreneurs Source

    “IT BEGINS from now,” tweeted Takafumi Horie, the former boss of Livedoor, an internet firm, two months after emerging from prison this spring. Mr Horie is involved in no fewer than 30 new companies, including a space-tourism venture. If any of them grow to be big, Mr Horie, who was convicted of fraud in 2011, may show that a fallen Japanese entrepreneur can make a comeback.

    The mood among Japan’s would-be business moguls is at its most buoyant since the dotcom bubble burst a decade or so ago. A higher stockmarket is boosting the chances of a successful initial public offering. The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, is Japan’s first leader to treat entrepreneurs as something more than greedy hustlers. For the past few years Mr Horie, a brash self-publicist, has been exhibit A in the case for holding that view. But now Mr Horie says he is being welcomed back into the business world.

    Mr Abe’s three-part plan to revive the economy, known as “Abenomics”, is designed to help start-ups as well as big business. First came monetary loosening from the Bank of Japan, and a fiscal stimulus. The third part, a series of reforms to boost long-term growth rates, includes radical deregulation in new “special economic zones” spread across the country. If this pledge is honoured, many new opportunities could emerge for entrepreneurs in industries ranging from medical care to agriculture. The reforms also involve ...

    The index of sentiment derived from a monthly Reuters survey of manufacturers rose by 3 points to plus 16 in August, which matched the level it was at in November 2010. A positive readings shows optimists outnumbered pessimists.

    The index is expected to rise again to plus 18 in November in the Reuters survey, which is strongly correlated with a closely watched quarterly Bank of Japan tankan survey.

    Makers of cars and electronics, however, were less upbeat due to worries about slowing growth in emerging markets, highlighting the risk overseas economies pose to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's reflationary policies.

    "Sales are doing much better than we initially anticipated," one chemicals maker said in the August 2-9 poll of 400 big and medium-sized firms, of which 276 responded.

    The service sector gauge also rose 5 points in August from the previous month to plus 23. This marked the highest level since April 2007 due to a housing boom and increased corporate spending on IT services.

    The index is expected to improve further to plus 29 in November.

    The BOJ's tankan issued on July 1 showed manufacturers' sentiment turned positive in April-June for the first time in nearly two years and was seen rising further on the feel-good mood generated by Abe's policies, intended to end 15 years of deflation, spur hiring and improve wages.

    The BOJ will release its next tankan survey on October 1.

    The central bank kept monetary policy steady earlier this month and left i...

    A quick sniff of a nasal spray sends microscopic metal particles into the brain, where they target and destroy the damaging proteins of Alzheimer's disease. No Alzheimer's? No problem—the metal particles pass out of the body safely. Such is the promise of technology being developed by neuroscientist William Klein and nanotechnologist Vinayak Dravid of Northwestern University. The pair has invented a nanotech-based early-detection system that might one day deliver targeted treatments.

    Klein and Dravid created an antibody—an immune molecule that detects specific chemical structures—that binds to a particle implicated in Alzheimer's. They linked the antibody to a nanoscale arrangement of iron oxide compounds, similar to rust, which can be seen with magnetic resonance imaging. The brain scan could detect the disease early on, so patients can start treatment sooner than they can today. “Once the chain reaction of negative events starts, it's like a lit fuse. You want to intervene as soon as possible,” Klein says.

    Globs of beta-amyloid protein called plaques are a hallmark of Alzheimer's. But these days most neuroscientists agree that a tiny particle form of the same protein, called an oligomer, is the primary toxin in the illness. Eventually these smaller structures glom together to form plaques, but by then they have already damaged brain cells. The antibody created at Northwestern binds to the toxic oligomers and could one day deliver therapies to the br...

    Koyal group tokyo Japan news articles, TOKYO-Japans sentralbank torsdag oppgradert sin vurdering av økonomien utsiktene etter at tidligere i år implementere en ambisiøs pengepolitikken som tar sikte på å øke inflasjonen og vekst.

    Bank of Japan, slutter en to-dagers politikk styremøte, valgte mer optimistisk språk for å beskrive verdens tredje største økonomi. Det sa i en uttalelse at økonomien var "begynner å gjenopprette moderat." Forrige måned, beskrevet det økonomien som "plukke opp".

    Det gjentok at eksport og selskapet overskudd var bedre. Banken har vært engineering en viktig del av en stimulans programmet, kjent som "Abenomics" for den nye statsminister Shinzo Abe, som overtok i fjor.

    Det holdt sin super-enkel pengepolitikk uendret. BOJ utvider den monetære basen av ca 60 billioner yen ($ 606 milliarder) til 70 billioner yen ($ 707 milliarder) over to år av mopping opp japanske regjeringen obligasjoner.
