Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享At the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Board meeting on January 18, the board denied the renewal of the liquor license for the Kenai Elks Lodge. The Kenai City Council will introduce a resolution at their bi-weekly council meeting this evening requesting the board work with the Kenai Elks Lodge in order to reinstate the license. The resolution is on the agenda for this evenings council meeting at 6 p.m., at Kenai City Hall. The Kenai Elks Lodge was established in 1970 and is registered as a non-profit in the City of Kenai. The resolution went onto to state that the ‘Kenai Elks utilized their best efforts as a volunteer organization to apply for reinstatement/renewal of its liquor license with the State of Alaska.’ Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-Kenai-Elks-.mp3VmJennifer-on-Kenai-Elks-.mp300:00RPd In the resolution it states; the denial of the reinstatement or renewal occurred prior to the Kenai Peninsula Borough and City of Kenai issuance of a non-objection to the reinstatement or renewal onFebruary 14 and 21, 2018 respectively, wich deprived the City and Borough of a meaningful opportunity to respond. In a letter from Jackson she stated: “For my part, as a ROW (retired old woman) I intend to pursue this, in the public’s interest. I have held numerous political and civic positions during my 45-year tenure in Alaska and have considerable familiarity with Boards and Commissions. I have zero expectation of relief by the State for my Lodge but believe I have a personal obligation to attend to this so other entities are not faced with the same problems.” Mary Jackson, the Chair of the Board of Directors and President of the Non-Profit Corporation, flew to Juneau from Kenai to attend the meeting on behalf of the Kenai Elks Lodge. If passed by the council copies of the resolution will be forwarded to Governor Bill Walker, Senator PeterMicciche (R-K-Pen), Representative Mike Chenault (R-K-Pen), Representative Paul Seaton (R-Homer), Representative Gary Knopp (R-K-Pen), Commissioner of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development Mike Navarre, ABC Chair Bob Klein, ABC Member Rex Leath, ABC Member Robert Evans, ABC Member Thomas Manning and the AMCO Director Erika McConnell.

Angela Lang/CNET Apple says its continuing to expand its investments in US manufacturing.The smartphone maker spent $60 billion with 9,000 American component suppliers and companies in 2018, the company said in a post Monday. That’s an increase of more than 10 percent from the year before. Apple highlighted several of its US-made components, including touch-sensitive glass for iPhone and iPad models made by Corning in Kentucky, as well as wireless communication hardware made in Colorado, Massachusetts and Oregon. Apple said the total number of jobs it’s created or supported since 2011 has tripled “from almost 600,000 to 2 million across all 50 states.” However, it’s not always easy to be “assembled in the USA.” In 2012, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the company was moving some Mac production to the US. But when Apple started assembling the $3,000 Mac Pro in Texas, it reportedly ran into problems. Apple struggled to find US suppliers that could make enough screws for the Mac Pro, according to a report Monday from The New York Times. It was one of several problems that delayed sales of the Mac, according to the Times, and Apple ended up ordering screws from China. When reached for comment, an Apple spokeswoman pointed back to the company’s Monday post.

Sri ReddyTwitterActress Sri Reddy thanked and called KCR aka K Chandrasekhar Rao a real hero after his Telangana (TS) Government set up panel to deal with sexual harassment pleas in Tollywood.Sri Reddy started a protest against the casting couch and sexual harrassment in Tollywood in April 2018. Initially, she didn’t get support and she was ignored and isolated by the industry. But the unfazed actress staged a nude protest at the Movie Artists Association, after it rejected her application for the membership. She also exposed how some celebs’ sexually harrassed her with a pretext of giving offers.The news about this created a lot of stir in the national media, putting Tollywood to shame. Following this, some NGOs and women organisations extended her support. Human Rights Commission took note of the issue and demanded the Telangana Govenment an explaination on not setting up Committee Against Sexual Harassment (CASH). Coming under pressure the Telugu film industry agreed to set up CASH soon.Exactly a year after Sri Reddy’s MeToo campaign began, the Telangana government has set up a 25-member committee to deal with complaints of sexual harassment in the Telugu film industry. The committee is headed by the chairman of the Telangana State Film Development Corporation. Sri ReddyTwitterThe State Women Development and Child welfare commissioner, Police Commissioners of Hyderabad and Rachakonda, Labour Department Commissioner, representatives of SHE teams, Telugu Film Producers Association President and State Film Development Corporation President have been named members of the committee, accoding to the reports.It was really an emotional moment for Sri Reddy, who was all thrilled and glad to hear the news about the setting of the commitee. The actress took to her Facebook page to thank Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for it. She has also expressed her gratitude to woman activists Sandya, Vasudha, Sajaya and Tej for their support all through this movement.Sri Reddy posted, “Being a Hyderabadi Proud moment today..Thank u soooooooo much real hero kcr garu..my dream came true today..from mark of bitch now you made me a heroine to this world..1 year of my pain gave the birth..g.o passed by government against sexual harrassment..for movie industry committee is forming soon on sexual harrassment..now got tremendous result for my removing clothes..main persons who made this true is sandya ,vasudha,sajaya,tej love u all..for this movement heart is “apoorva”..thank u every one..”
Journal information: Nature Biotechnology Data, data everywhere and now as ever researchers need the best tools to make the data useful. In medicine, searching through genomic data can take some time. A startup called One Codex hopes to make difference with their genetic search platform that can process data sets quickly. A report on their work on Friday in TechCrunch noted the advantage of One Codex speed. “Currently,” wrote Julian Chokkattu, “the most commonly used tool for genome searching is by using an algorithm called BLAST, Basic Local Alignment Search Tool, which compares primary biological sequence information.” For Nick Greenfield, cofounder of One Codex, uploading a file to BLAST took two minutes and 30 seconds to process, compared with the One Codex system where the number was less than 1/20th of a second. The company defines One Codex as a search engine for genomic data. The TechCrunch piece describes what they offer as a service platform for genomics. Apart from using search technology,” said Chokkattu, the platform also acts as an indexed, curated reference. © 2014 Phys.org Searching genomic data faster with new algorithm More information: One Codex: onecodex.com/ Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

A key advantage is speed. The product can, said the company, “process next-generation datasets in minutes, not days (millions of DNA base pairs per second).”The two founders are Nick Greenfield, former data scientist, and Nik Krumm, who has a PhD in genome sciences from the University of Washington.Sample applications would be in clinical diagnostics, food safety and biosecurity. Right now, said TechCrunch, the company is focusing on testing their platform with hospitals and agencies. One Codex is in open beta.Scientific interest in being able to search genomic data faster has been in evidence for some years. In 2012, MIT’s news office reported on a study in Nature Biotechnology, where MIT and Harvard researchers described an algorithm “that drastically reduces the time it takes to find a particular gene sequence in a database of genomes. Moreover, the more genomes it’s searching, the greater the speedup it affords, so its advantages will only compound as more data is generated.” The authors of that paper, titled “Compressive genomics,” said, “In the past two decades, genomic sequencing capabilities have increased exponentially, outstripping advances in computing power. Extracting new insights from the data sets currently being generated will require not only faster computers, but also smarter algorithms.” They stated that although compression schemes for BLAST and BLAT that they presented yield an increase in computational speed and in scaling, “they are only a first step.”
