Neutrophil extracellular traps drive inflammatory pathogenesis in malaria

The role of neutrophils in the inflammation and tissue pathology associated with malaria infection is poorly understood. Knackstedt et al. used samples from patients infected with the Plasmodium falciparum parasite, as well as a mouse model of malaria, to investigate the contributions of neutrophils and neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) to disease pathogenesis. Heme released from parasitized red blood cells induced formation of intravascular NETs, leading to an increase in emergency granulopoiesis and an enhancement in the capacity of endothelial cells to bind infected erythrocytes. These findings demonstrate that neutrophil-derived NETs exacerbate malarial immunopathology, opening the door to targeting NETs as part of human malaria therapy. Neutrophils are essential innate immune cells that extrude chromatin in the form of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) when they die. This form of cell death has potent immunostimulatory activity. We show that heme-induced NETs are essential for malaria pathogenesis. Using patient samples and a mouse model, we define two mechanisms of NET-mediated inflammation of the vasculature: activation of emergency granulopoiesis via granulocyte ...

We recently got a close look at the new Monument Grills ClearView 6-burner propane gas grill

We recently got a close look at the new Monument Grills ClearView 6-burner propane gas grill at the 2019 National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. We already got a chance to review the Monument 4-burner gas grill, but this new version adds two more burners with a total capacity of 96,000 BTUs. At just $599, the build quality and features of this grill make it really competitive and a solid choice for anyone looking for a good-sized grilling solution for those upcoming summer get-togethers. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERSgoogletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1389975325257-0′); }); There are a few things worth mentioning here, but let’s start with the mass amount of burners that come with the Monument Grills 6-Burner Grill. If the name is any indication, you can guess that this grill comes with 6, yes, 6 stainless steel main burners, complete with 304 Stainless steel cooking grates and flame tamers. These main burners can generate up to 72,000 BTU. But that’s not all of its cooking surfaces. It features a stainless steel side burner and a stainless steel ceramic sear side burner. I really like the brand’s built-in ClearView window so that I can get a good lo...

Are cotton or paper bags really better than plastic?

But if you use it once or twice, stick it in the cupboard then buy a new one, it may be just as bad as using a conventional plastic bag – or worse. Many Kiwis have called for action on single-use plastic bags. Supermarkets have taken heed and pledged to ban the bag at Countdown and New World stores by the end of next year.  Other countries, such as Kenya, have banned plastic bags altogether. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, levies have seen plastic bag use plummet by over 80 per cent. But the effect on demand for alternatives is largely unknown. What is known is that all bags, from plastic to paper to polypropylene, are made differently, and how they are made has an environmental impact. A 2011 study by the United Kingdom Environment Agency found the environmental impact of all types of bags was dominated by resource use and the production stage. In comparison, transport, secondary packaging and end-of-life management had little effect. The study compared different types of reusable bags to supermarket single-use plastic bags made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), currently used at Countdown, and calculated how many times each reusable bag would need to be used to ...

Behind the Scenes of The Lighthouse , the Strangest, Spookiest Movie of the Year

I saw the new and wonderfully weird period chiller The Lighthouse at the Toronto International Film Festival last month amid a scrum of aggro festivalgoers. The line to get a seat was as long and rowdy as anything I encountered that week. What is it about the work of Brooklyn-based, 36-year-old filmmaker Robert Eggers that inspires such mania? His 2015 debut film, The Witch, won him the prestigious directing award at Sundance and launched him as a kind of horror auteur—one whose movies aren’t scary, exactly, but excruciatingly ominous and rich with mood. The Witch concerned itself with 17th-century New England settlers encountering a malignant force in the woods (and featured a memorably demonic goat). The Lighthouse advances things few centuries but remains squarely in that same New England Gothic mode (this time there’s a seagull up to no good). This is a head trip of a movie, a salty, spooky, claustrophobic two-hander. Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe play a pair of 19th-century misfits manning a remote lighthouse off the coast of Maine, and they squabble and rile each other up in period dialect, work in horrendous weather, and slowly go mad. Eggers, a perfectionist through ...

In federal, state probes of prostitution at Pennsylvania massage parlors, most roads originate in Flushing, N.Y.

If there is a common thread linking the sex trafficking industry between Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania, and the Florida panhandle, it is Flushing, New York. Although roughly a thousand miles separate ongoing criminal cases in Florida and Westmoreland County of massage parlor operators in accused of running their businesses as brothels, court documents in both states are filled with mentions of Flushing, the New York City neighborhood in Queens, that prosecutors say serves as the epicenter of America’s modern-day forced-sex trade. It is stitched to prostitution and human trafficking through an estimated 9,000 massage parlors across the nation that generate nearly $2.5 billion annually in illicit revenue, according to Polaris, the nonprofit behind the National Human Trafficking Hotline (888-373-7888). That includes the much-publicized Jupiter, Florida, massage parlor sting operation that brought sex crime charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft in February. Lawyers for Kraft, 78, on Tuesday sued the Florida attorney general’s office, claiming it violated an open records law by not turning over certain materials in the case. Prosecutors claim video evidence sho...

Vaxis Thor 800ft+ wireless video transmission system review

The Vaxis Thor 800ft+ wireless video transmission system is capable of transmitting visually lossless 1080 60p video and audio up to 200-250 meters. The Thor 800ft+ is the third model in the Vaxis wireless lineup and joins the Storm 500ft+ and Storm 1000FT+ which have been popular choices for those deciding between other wireless systems such as Teradek’s Bolt due to their price point and features. I reviewed the Storm 500ft+ earlier this year and found it to be a very capable system that was reliable, easy to use and well built. At $1,880 USD it was significantly cheaper than a lot of its competition. There has been lots of speculation and accusations that the Vaxis wireless systems weren’t using genuine or legal parts. Well, let me try and put all of this into perspective. Some of the original Vaxis products, such as the Storm (up until the start of June 2018) were using grey market Amimon chips, not modern Amimon technology. These units that were being brought into the USA were using an outdated FCC ID that did not give them permission to use DFS channels or manual channel selection. That was the past, now all of the Vaxis products including the Thor 800ft+ are using authent...

Thermo Scientific Sentinel 3000 improves productivity, functionality and performance

The Thermo Scientific Sentinel 3000 multiscan metal detector is the first multi-frequency detector designed for checkweigher combination systems to enable food manufacturers and food quality managers to improve productivity by combining the benefits of multiscan metal detection technology with accurate weight control. By integrating the detector onto the checkweigher frame, the need for an external metal detector conveyor is eliminated. New Versa checkweigher software incorporates the ability to operate the checkweigher and metal detector from one screen and is designed to improve usability and reduce training time. Users can select up to five frequencies from 50 to 1000 kHz and scan through each frequency at a rapid rate. It is designed to identify contaminants that are up to 30 percent smaller in volume than previous Thermo Scientific technologies, and increases the probability that all random sizes, shapes and types of metal foreign objects are found before food products reach consumers. Lead product manager, metal detection and X-ray inspection for Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bob Ries, said: “Food manufacturers are increasingly adopting combination systems for more econo...
