To further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports, please visit MambaSportsFoundation.org. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. “My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them,” Bryant writes. “There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever.”Bryant asked her to “support the other families affected by this tragedy” by donating to MambaOnThree.org. She also directed them to visit MambaSportsFoundation.org to “further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports.”Vanessa Bryant’s full statement reads as follows:“My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them.

She has frequented council meetings since she moved back to Fair Haven and has had “growing concerns” about the way communication is shared. “I’ve been very vocal and, in my book, if you’re going to speak up and continue to do so, at some point you have to step out too,” she said. Her interest in politics sparked after she joined the Junior League of Monmouth County in 2012, where she advocated for legislation to help improve the lives of women and children in New Jersey. She was then inspired to run for local office. The borough council currently has a Republican majority with a sole Democrat on the dais, councilman Chris Rodriguez. A candidate forum was held Wednesday night by the League of Women Voters organization. He hopes to keep up with Fair Haven’s “pro-environment agenda,” maintain the walkability of the town and improve waterfront facilities. He also wants to continue to plan for long-term financial investments and manage the physical capital of the town. “I spend a lot of time worrying about all of the things that most people in town probably don’t see, things like the fire hydrants and things like the street lights. These are all the things that no one thinks about,” said Peters. Peters has been a borough resident since 1999 and a council member for the past 15 years, eight of which were spent as the council president. As a professor of finance at New York University, Peters said he decided to run for council in 2004 because he thought the borough would benefit from his background in finance and economics. “This is the thing I could do to serve the community.” FAIR HAVEN – Republican incumbents Jonathan Peters and Jacqueline Rice are running for re-election in November against challengers Meghan Chrisner-Keefe and Michael McCue. Meghan Chrisner-Keefe One challenge facing Fair Haven is the “very little money” it gets from the state in terms of state aid for the schools and the borough, he said. It makes the council look to the taxpayer to cover those costs. Michael McCue Rice joined the council most recently and has lived in Fair Haven since 2005, but her husband Brian is a lifelong resident. She is currently a part-time para-professional at Knollwood Elementary School. She also volunteers on the recreation committee and Fair Haven Day committee. Rice is also a member of the council’s communications committee that has rolled out a weekly email blast to residents to keep them informed of town happenings, she said. They are also creating a new website which will be easier to navigate than the existing website. Rice said Fair Haven’s biggest challenge currently is that its facilities are in “desperate need of repair and/ or replacement,” but that the council must address it while remaining tax neutral, which is her main goal. Peters and his running mate Jacqueline Rice said they are proud of Fair Haven’s AA+ bond rating from Standard & Poor’s that the town has maintained for 10 years, and which was renewed this month. Peters said he is proud of his record and hopes residents keep it in mind at the polls Nov. 5. She fears the downtown district may become overly congested. The borough is considering bringing affordable housing to River Road, she said, and potentially a new borough hall. “It feels a little bit like some sort of storm that’s been brewing for a long time that’s finally coming to a head.” Jonathan Peters He is also a social studies teacher, educating children about the Constitution and the system of government “so they can grow up and be informed citizens,” he said. He wants to run for election to help residents have their voices heard and feels the current council does not always do so, especially for hot-button issues. He hopes to have open discussions with residents and “keep things simple and just listen to people.” Democratic challenger Chrisner-Keefe grew up in Fair Haven and returned to the borough with her husband to raise their four children. She is a practicing attorney and has participated in nonprofit, pro bono work. Her running mate Michael McCue has lived in Fair Haven since 1991 and currently resides in the borough with his wife and two sons. He joined the Marine Corps after 9/11 and served for five years, including two tours in Iraq. “In the Marines, you work with all different groups of people from different backgrounds and everybody is on the same team,” he said. “We all just try to work toward the same goal.” Additionally, Chrisner-Keefe said if elected she would like to stream videos of the council meetings to its website, whether it be live-streamed or posted afterward. She said it’s important that everyone stay informed, including those who work late or can’t make it to meetings. Jacqueline Rice

(Visited 29 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Two newly published studies involving thousands of nurses show that lifestyle and attitude might influence the age of your cells.Telomeres are special “end caps” on chromosomes that keep them from unwinding. Cells begin with a number of caps; each time a cell divides, a cap is lost (although the telomerase enzyme can add new telomeres). Much remains to be learned about telomeres, but they seem to be implicated with aging. When a chromosome runs out of telomeres, it can no longer divide, and the cell dies.Can lifestyle and attitude influence telomeres? This is largely unknown territory. Starting in 1976, thousands of female nurses participated in a Nurses Health Study (NHS) by filling out questionnaires on their health habits and anxiety levels and following up every 2-3 years. In 1988-1990, thousands submitting blood samples. This data has now been correlated with telomere counts in the leukocytes (white blood cells), important cells in the immune system.One study by Qi Sun et. al, published in May in PLoS ONE, found a correlation between telomere shortness and unhealthy lifestyles. Another study by Okereke et al., just published July 11 in PLoS ONE, found a possible connection between “phobic anxiety” and telomere shortness. This study was summarized on Science Daily.The authors of these papers realize that correlation is not causation, and even correlation is difficult to measure, due to errors and omissions such as inconsistencies in questionnaire responses, lack of follow-up blood samples, evaluation of a single cell type, and evaluations of one gender only. Nevertheless, the researchers found statistically significant correlations that remained stable even after cross-checking their data various ways. These studies had the advantage of large data sets involving thousands of participants.If the correlations remain robust in similar studies, it would indicate that mental states and lifestyle choices can produce epigenetic effects on our genes. Most of us realize that poor lifestyle choices and anxieties are unhealthy, but these studies suggest a detailed physical connection between mind and body about which many of us were unaware.Since it’s very difficult to have high confidence in correlation studies like this, we’ll mark this as interesting and potentially valuable to know. It fits well with what biologists are learning about the “mysterious epigenome” (see 07/04/2012 entry). Wouldn’t it be something if your fears or choices have a tangible effect on the action of the telomerase enzymes in your cells? Don’t make your telomerase say, “What’s the use? My owner doesn’t care about all the work I do.”
GSA had made specific recommendationsThe new rule has a long and complicated history.DOE was required in a law passed in 2007 to identify a green certification system for rating federal buildings. The study fell to the GSA, which in 2008 said that LEED-Silver would meet legal tests. In 2011, DOE asked for comment on whether other green rating systems also would meet requirements of the law, and last year the GSA administrator recommended that federal agencies use either the 2009 LEED standard or the 2010 Green Globes program.If agencies choose LEED, they should get at least a Silver rating; if they use Green Globes, the GSA said they should be certified at the “two globes” level or better.In the most recent rule, the DOE “encourages” federal agencies to consider GSA’s 2013 recommendations on rating systems even if using one is optional.And that, writes Shari Shapiro at the Green Building Law blog, probably means LEED will be the favored system. “Sounds a lot like LEED to me,” she said of the DOE’s updated criteria, “so unless something else comes into the marketplace, Federal buildings are likely to use the LEED standard.”Shapiro found it interesting that GSA requires its own buildings to be certified to the LEED Gold standard.“Since the Final Rule does not have a recommended rating system, and most agencies are unlikely to parse whether a particular rating system other than LEED complies with these characteristics, the GSA’s recommendations are likely to become the Federal default,” she wrote. The U.S. Department of Energy won’t be directing federal agencies to use any particular green-building rating system when they design new buildings and plan major renovations. But whatever system they choose will have to meet certain criteria.Rather than choose the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED system or the competing Green Globes program — both of which have been found to be acceptable by the General Services Administration (GSA) — the rule leaves the choice to agency planners.“DOE is not approving by this rule any specific green building rating systems for use in new Federal buildings and major renovations,” the rule says. “Instead, DOE is specifying in regulation criteria for determining acceptable green building rating systems to allow agencies flexibility in choosing a rating system, including the possibility of using new or improved rating systems that are not currently available or known.“In this way, DOE is allowing Federal agencies to use the system most appropriate for their buildings.”New and substantially renovated federal buildings must meet certain energy standards, but the agencies planning them are not required to use a rating system such as LEED or Green Globes. But should agencies choose to use a rating system, it must meet these conditions:Auditors must be able to verify the criteria of the rating system independently.The certifying organization must be able to collect and use public comment.The standard should be developed with a consensus-based process.The rating system should be recognized in the industry.And it should include a provision for assessing the building’s energy and water conservation after it’s occupied.The final rule, issued by the department on October 14, goes into effect on November 13.
A PWD junior engineer, who was allegedly forced by a newly elected BJD MLA in Odisha to do sit-ups in public, on Friday claimed the legislator had also asked an executive engineer to slap him, even as the police registered a case against the lawmaker. The alleged “rowdyism” of Saroj Kumar Meher, first-time MLA from Patnagarh in Bolangir district, also triggered a row with the Opposition BJP coming down heavily on the BJD government and demanding immediate arrest of the lawmaker and the Congress condemning the incident. Mr. Meher, who drew flak after a video purportedly showed him forcing a PWD junior engineer to do sit-ups in public went viral, on Thursday apologised for his action, claiming he did so to assuage public anger. Later on Thursday, the engineer’s wife lodged a complaint with the police against the MLA, accusing him of publicly humiliating her husband.
