Losing Weight Decreases Cancer Risk
About 20 percent of all cancers are caused by being overweight or obese. In this "8 Way to Prevent Cancer" video, Washington University and Siteman Cancer Center prevention specialist Katleen Wolin, ScD, says the beneficial effects of weight loss on cancer risk begin with losing as little as five pounds. Researchers say to maintain weight loss, individuals should increase physcial activity and reduce the number of calories they consume.

Dr. Conrad Volz on the WVSA and Frack Water Treatment Facilities
by Scott Cannon Dr. Conrad Volz displayed a photograph of brine- and chemical-laden natural gas wastewater pouring into a western Pennsylvania stream from a treatment facility in Josephine. "This has to be stopped," he declared. "This is a public health emergency." Volz, director of the University of Pittsburgh Center for Healthy Environments and Communities, came to Misericordia University on Monday at the request of the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition to speak about the impact of Marcellus Shale drilling on public health. Recent revelations by The New York Times that improperly treated wastewater containing brine, radioactive material and other harmful substances is finding its way into the state's bodies of water, along with the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority's consideration of a treatment facility in Hanover Township and two potential natural gas metering stations near the Dallas schools made the presentation timely. Two main problems with natural gas drilling is the potential for explosions and blowouts at wells, compressor stations and pipelines, and the fact that the state often allows drilling wastewater to get into the environment after inadequate treatment, according to Volz. Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," involves sending millions of gallons of chemical-treated water to open cracks in the shale and release the gas. In addition to the chemicals, the water picks up salts, naturally occurring radioactive material, barium, magnesium and various other volatile organic compounds. These combine with nitrogen oxides to form ozone, which Volz said can irritate the lungs and worsen asthma and respiratory infections. Volatile organic compounds are also carcinogenic. One of them, strontium, replaces calcium in the body, weakening the bones, Volz said. Chemicals from drilling can be inhaled or ingested when they get into the air and water. The cement in well casings can be damaged by the salt, allowing methane gas and chemicals to migrate into groundwater. Compressor engine exhaust is a significant source of nitrous oxides and volatile organic compounds, as well as fine particles that can be inhaled deep in the lungs, Volz said. Since natural gas drilling is relatively new to the area, people are only starting to be exposed, and environment-related cancers take 15 to 30 years to develop, Volz said. He cited Louisiana, where the petroleum industry is well established - parts of the state are called "cancer alley" as a result of higher lung, liver and other cancers associated with the industry. "It all comes in one package, my friends. You take the money, you take the cancer, too," he said. Volz said natural gas drilling or related facilities should not be allowed near schools, hospitals or critical infrastructure. Billions of dollars have been spent to take toxic materials like asbestos out of schools - "and that wasn't the risk this is," he said. "Serious, serious, serious" health problems result from drilling wastewater, Volz said. He showed photographs from a study he had done at a brine processing facility in Josephine, where improperly treated water was allowed to pour into a nearby stream. He said people with private wells within 100 feet of the stream could be affected - and so could people in cities like Freeport, Oakmont and even Pittsburgh if the pollutants find their way into the sources of water systems. Volz repeatedly reminded people the situation is political, urging them to vote out lawmakers who don't do what the people want. Samantha Malone, communications specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Healthy Environments and Communities, demonstrated the blog she developed, fractracker.org. It combines data from different state and federal agencies, allowing people to map what is going on in their communities.

Hello America - Dental Care
Aisha Khalid, Urdu VOA News,Washington This segment of Hello America features a question from a dental surgeon Dr. Sheheryar Akhtar about the ways for raising the awareness about dental care in a financially constrained environment like in Pakistan. Spokesperson of the American Dental Association on the East Coast Dr. Sally J Cram in answer to this elaborates upon the ways that have been proven effective in teaching Americans about the importance of regular dental care. Dr. Cram believes that while one of the most effective ways for raising awareness is through TV programing and dentists, themselves, also have a responsibility. In the US, she says, many dentists like her fulfill this responsibility by volunteering in the schools and community centers for teaching people about the dental problems that they might have.

Genotoxic Stress Meets Mitochondria: Integrating Aging Mechanisms
Air date: Wednesday, September 14, 2011, 3:00:00 PM Time displayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local Category: Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Description: The study of human genetic disorders and mutant mouse models has provided evidence that genome maintenance mechanisms, DNA damage signaling and metabolic regulation cooperate to drive the ageing process. In particular, age-associated telomere damage, diminution of telomere 'capping' function and associated p53 activation have emerged as prime instigators of a functional decline of tissue stem cells and of mitochondrial dysfunction that adversely affect renewal and bioenergetic support in diverse tissues. Constructing a model of how telomeres, stem cells and mitochondria interact with key molecules governing genome integrity, 'stemness' and metabolism provides a framework for how diverse factors contribute to ageing and age-related disorders. Exploiting the experimental merits of the mouse, we have shown that telomere dysfunction activates p53-mediated cellular growth arrest, senescence and apoptosis to drive progressive atrophy and functional decline in high-turnover tissues. The broader adverse impact of telomere dysfunction across many tissues including more quiescent systems prompted transcriptomic network analyses to identify common mechanisms operative in haematopoietic stem cells, heart and liver. These unbiased studies revealed profound repression of PGC-1α and PGC-1β and the downstream network in mice null for either telomerase reverse transcriptase (Tert) or telomerase RNA component (Terc) genes. Consistent with PGCs as master regulators of mitochondrial physiology and metabolism, telomere dysfunction is associated with impaired mitochondrial biogenesis and function, decreased gluconeogenesis, cardiomyopathy, and increased reactive oxygen species. We demonstrate that telomere dysfunction activates p53 which in turn binds and represses PGC-1α and PGC-1β promoters, thereby forging a direct link between telomere and mitochondrial biology. This telomere-p53-PGC axis contributes to organ and metabolic failure and to diminishing organismal fitness in the setting of telomere dysfunction.

Satan  has  retired  in  Bangladesh -  Shaikh Nurul Islam Faruqi
Whatever the population, non-Wahabi Muslim leaders say approximately 80 percent of all U.S. mosques are under the control of Wahabi imams and subsidized by Saudi Arabia. In addition to funding mosque construction and subsidizing programs, the Saudis are said to be pouring millions into creating a system of schools teaching militant Wahabi doctrines. Given the 80-percent figure, and considering that mosques are operating in every U.S. state, Wahabis are becoming a formidable influence. For example, the State Department lists 327 mosques in California, 67 in Texas, 57 in Florida, and 140 in New York. An example of anti-American Muslim rhetoric was documented in terrorist expert Steven Emerson's 1994 PBS documentary, Jihad in America. If the Americans are placing their forces in the Persian Gulf, we should be creating another war front for the Americans in the Muslim world—and specifically where American interests are concentrated. —Mohammad Al-Asi, leader of the Washington Mosque and head of the Islamic Educational Center in Washington, D.C. What sets the Wahabi segment of Islam apart as a danger to America and the West? For starters, Wahabism has been described as an Islamist totalitarian system. Its strictures include suppressing women and invoking the death penalty for alcohol consumption, sexual transgressions, and conversion to another religion. Western influence and close interaction with non-Muslims are seen with a mixture of disdain; contempt; and at times, aggression that is believed to be sanctioned by the Qu'ran. Prime targets for Wahabi animosity are Israel and America. Practitioners of the Wahabi brand of Islam are committed to spreading the religion around the world by peaceful or coercive means. The Muslim Student Association, with solid Wahabi commitments, operates chapters on virtually every major campus in America. In league with militant left-wing organizations, it has been in the forefront of organizing and executing anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hate campaigns on campuses. A student publication at Rutgers University published a cartoon depicting a Jewish man suspended over a burning oven. The caption read, "Knock a Jew in the oven." At Wooster College in Ohio, a guest lecturer spoke about the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion as if they were true. At Northwestern University in Illinois, swastikas were painted throughout the campus nine times in a single year. The Wahabis' brand of religious militancy is not simply a matter of being out of step with American values and Judeo-Christian traditions of their adopted home; it is a potential menace to other Muslims who do not embrace the excesses of Wahabism. As has been demonstrated by the Muslim on Muslim war in Darfur, Sudan, Wahabis are not above attacking other Muslims whom they consider not Muslim enough for their taste.

The Evolution of the Broad Chemical Biology Informatics Platform - Ben Alexander (Broad Institute)
The Chemical Biology Platform within the Broad Institute screens both the Molecular Libraries Small Molecule Repository (MLSMR) and a unique compound collection synthesized internally through diversity oriented synthesis, yielding novel starting points for follow-up chemistry in a range of disease areas including cancer, diabetes, and psychiatric illnesses. The supporting informatics needs include sample tracking, analysis of high-throughput assay data, hit evaluation, and analysis of compounds by patterns of activity across multiple assays (e.g., to understand mechanism of action). Data and results have been made public first through ChemBank and subsequently through PubChem and CARS. As our focus has shifted from infrastructure development to supporting the discovery of putative novel therapeutics, our informatics requirements now include capture of the entire discovery life cycle (assay development, HTS, lead optimization, ADME etc.). This presentation describes the evolving informatics needs relative to probe and drug discovery. It includes an overview of informatics initiatives with a focus on our current Chemical Biology Informatics Platform (CBIP), and our plans to evolve toward a modular system that enables biologists, chemists, and computational scientists to integrate chemical and biological data. Success stories that highlight the ChemAxon family of products since the transition from a legacy chemistry cartridge in March 2010 will be presented including how we have integrated ChemAxon into our environment over the past year-and-a-half: hit calling for high-throughput screens, cherry picking of compounds for retest, and stereo-structure-activity relationship analysis.

Jay Rhine is the current owner of the farm as well as the founder and president of Rhine Landscaping. Jay took over farm operations at the age of 19, when his father, Jack, died of lung cancer. 

In 1996, Jay started cutting grass and landscaping on the side to earn income to help subsidize the increasing costs of running a farm. Over the years, the landscape company grew as dairy operations on the farm diminished. By 2003, Rhine landscaping had grown to a company of more than 50 employees, while the farm had diminished to 350 working acres, 1/5 of what it had been just 7 years earlier.

 Today, Jay still owns and operates the farm, although on a much smaller scale. In 2000, Rhine acquired its first designer, later adding a landscape architect and additional designers to the staff. Rhine operates primarily in Howard, Carroll, Baltimore, Montgomery, and Frederick Counties. However they have traveled as far as Ocean city, Washington County, and Kent Island to design and install custom landscaping elements.

YMCA of Montclair: 2011 Community Gala Honorees
On December 3, 2011 the YMCA of Montclair celebrated the contributions of four individuals whose impact on the organization will forever be felt by its members, staff, and the Greater Montclair Community. These four are: Helen Geyer, Robert Constable, Thomas Boyton, and Carol Kearney. All will be honored for their years of dedication, commitment, and generosity of spirit to help further the Y's mission. The "1891 Community Gala," the Y's inaugural signature event held at the Highlawn Pavilion, West Orange, NJ paid tribute to these four individuals and also serve as a platform to help generate awareness of the Y's efforts and activities. Dollars raised will fund the financial assistance provided to those with demonstrated need toward membership, child care, summer camps, and general programming. Opportunities to support the cause were available through sponsorships, tribute journal ads, tickets to the event, and donation of auction items. The criteria for being considered an 1891 Community Gala Honoree has to do with the honorees' years of service to the YMCA of Montclair, their history of giving, and their specific volunteer talent that they lend to the organization. All of these conditions must be above standard in order to stack up against the caliber of the nominees. According to Jo Ann Short, President & CEO of the YMCA of Montclair, "our inaugural honorees are all incredibly worthy and have each contributed to the Y in very different ways, and all will leave their footprints upon us, our facility, and our community for generations to come." The honorees celebrated for the inaugural year 2011 are: Thomas E. Boyton served as Executive Director of the YMCA of Montclair from 1987 until his retirement as President/ CEO in June 2010. During his tenure he expanded the facility with a second pool, offices and observation balcony in 1991. Ten years later, he took on the much needed locker room renovations and created state of the art facilities complete with steam, sauna, showers and lockers at 25 Park Street facility. In 2006, he directed the sale of the Washington Street facility to allow the Montclair Board of Education to build the state of the art building where the Bullock School stands today, and built the Geyer Family facility in its stead, at 159 Glenridge Avenue, Montclair, completed in 2007. Helen Geyer has served for many years as a valuable volunteer to the YMCA of Montclair. Over the years she served on the Ladies Auxiliary and in addition to many other special events she assisted in transforming the gymnasium to look like that of the theme of that year's fundraiser. She assisted with inviting "the right people" to the table for each event and funded several projects over the years. More recently and more significantly, Mrs. Geyer generously funded the renovation of the 159 Glenridge Avenue property. In 2007, the branch of the YMCA intended to serve our youth population was officially named the Helen & Bill Geyer Family Center of the Montclair YMCA. We give many thanks to Helen for her philanthropic spirit. Robert S. Constable has served in a volunteer capacity as YMCA of Montclair Board Member since 1992 and acted in the role of Chairman from September 1996 to September 1998. During this time, he set the bar for fund development in leading the board to understanding their role as the fund development arm of the Y. Today he carries the title of chair emeritus and continues with his soft demeanor and strong leadership. He is respected for his business savvy and diplomatic style. His personal contributions in time, talent and treasure have assisted in creating the firm foundation for which this organization is so proud. Carol Kearney joined the YMCA of Montclair staff team in 1980. She joined as a part-timer conducting fitness classes. That position evolved into a full-time role as the Physical Director for many years and then she scaled it back while she raised her daughter, Amanda. Now as the Pied Piper for our morning crew and leader extraordinaire for our seniors, she is the YMCA of Montclair. Her personal touch is felt by anyone who comes in contact with her. Her personal and genuine concern for other people is like no other. She was at the very start of the annual 10K run 30 years ago and has been in charge of it ever since. She partners with so many to pull it off, but truly is the leader in this terrific community event. The size of her heart and the depth of her compassion are immeasurable.

"Investigations in Diesel Exhaust" - Nov. 4, 2011
Chad Weldy presented "Investigations in Diesel Exhaust -- Mediated Effects in Pulmonary Inflammation and Vascular Reactivity; How Our Genes May Increase Our Susceptibility to Air Pollutants" as part of Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment Speaker Series at noon on Friday, Nov. 4 in Academic West room 304 on the Western campus. A wide range of health impacts are associated with both chronic and acute exposures to airborne particulates, most predominantly the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular related mortality. Diesel engines are the main source of the particulate matter of concern in urban environments. Weldy will discuss his research that examined the biological effects and mechanisms of diesel exhaust to explore the role of reactive oxygen species and cellular capacity to generate sufficient quantities of the antioxidant glutathione (GSH). Genes that code for proteins responsible for GSH synthesis are important in human antioxidant defense, and induced expression of these genes are vital in maintaining normal cellular function following exposure to many environmental toxicants. Weldy's research suggests that these genes may be important in mitigating both pulmonary and cardiovascular effects following diesel exhaust exposure. These findings are important because they suggest a large number of people (about 20 percent of the population) may be at increased risk of adverse health effects following inhalation of particulate matter. Weldy graduated in 2007 from Western's Huxley College of the Environment, earning a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science with an emphasis in Environmental Toxicology, and was awarded the Ming‐Ho Yu Award for the Outstanding Student in Environmental Toxicology at Huxley College. He is in the final year of work toward a doctorate in Environmental Toxicology at University of Washington's School of Public Health. Weldy is a member of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) and the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine. He is first author on publications in current issues of "Inhalation Toxicology" and "Toxicology in Vitro," and he collaborates on research in the Cardiology Division of the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Anyone interested in this topic is encouraged to come and participate; the presentation will include a question-and-answer period. The speaker series is held by Western's Huxley College of the Environment to bring together the environmentally minded community and other interested members of the WWU and Bellingham communities. Speakers address topics of contemporary environmental concern in the region and the world.
