The team of researchers at the ARC Centre for Excellence in Plant Energy Biology and the Centre for AgriBioscience at La Trobe University, have boosted plant performance under limited phosphate by targeting genes that regulate phosphate transport in plant roots, resulting in increased phosphate uptake while sidestepping negative effects on plant growth and yield. The approach overcomes a hurdle encountered by previous attempts to increase plant phosphate uptake, where reduced growth and yield were observed as a result of plants not being able to process the extra phosphate. The discovery would be even more valuable in China where overuse of fertilisers is a huge environmental and economic issue. There is also great interest in the United States where the findings were published. Phosphate, an essential nutrient for plant growth, is a limited and non-renewable resource, with high-grade phosphate reserves gradually being exhausted. According to the United Nations, global food production will need to double by
Mayor wants landlords with pre housing to prove rentals are safe from lead Many neighbors were incensed. They knew that the city required that those living near the demolition at Gordon and Gaul Streets be notified 10 days before the demolition, that the structure be dismantled by hand tools, and that the debris be wet down to protect residents from dust that could contain hazardous materials, including lead. None of that happened.

Transcript The Dean Ornish program that led to the improvement in artery function and the dramatic drop in angina attacks is not just about putting people on a plant-based diet. It also involves recommendations for moderate exercise and stress management, and we know exercise alone can improve endothelial function. So, how do we know diet had anything to do with it? Esselstyn was able to improve angina using a plant-based diet as the only lifestyle intervention. Angina and Vegan Diet: Chest pain so severe he had to stop every nine or ten steps.
He started on a vegan diet and months later, he climbed mountains with no pain. The improvements in anginal symptoms are too rapid and too great to be explained by the gradual regression of the atherosclerotic plaque. Is it macronutrient differences, simply the lack of the deleterious effect of meat? Endothelial function improves if we lower our cholesterol low enough, by any means necessary.
This study took PET scans measuring blood flow to the heart before and after three radically different ways to lower cholesterol. The first method used drugs, the second a low-fat diet — a really low-fat diet, and the third, no diet at all.

The identity of silphium is highly debated. Parejko, writing on its possible extinction, concludes that “because we cannot even accurately identify the plant we cannot know for certain whether it is extinct”. Overgrazing combined with overharvesting may have led to its extinction. Another theory is that when Roman provincial governors took over power from Greek colonists, they over-farmed silphium and rendered the soil unable to yield the type that was said to be of such medicinal value. Theophrastus wrote in Enquiry into Plants that the type of ferula specifically referred to as “silphium” was odd in that it could not be cultivated.
It has been speculated that the plant may also have functioned as a contraceptive , based partly on Pliny’s statement that it could be used “to promote the menstrual discharge”. Given this, it is quite possible that the plant was pharmacologically active in the prevention or termination of pregnancy.
Culinary uses[ edit ] Silphium was used in Greco-Roman cooking, notably in recipes by Apicius. Long after its extinction, silphium continued to be mentioned in lists of aromatics copied one from another, until it makes perhaps its last appearance in the list of spices that the Carolingian cook should have at hand—Brevis pimentorum que in domo esse debeant “A short list of condiments that should be in the home” —by a certain “Vinidarius”, whose excerpts of Apicius  survive in one eighth-century uncial manuscript.
Vinidarius’s dates may not be much earlier.

Abstract The investigation of textiles and textile production can yield important information about the infrastructure and resource management in ancient societies. Before the 19th century textiles made of plant material in Scandinavia were mainly made from locally available raw materials: This investigation demonstrates that hemp, in some cases at least, was also used for fine textile production in Viking Age Scandinavia.
The aim of this paper is to investigate this topic further. The collection is extensive and belongs to one of the oldest archaeological collections in Norway. It contains finds from western Norway mainly. We identified a total of 45 grave finds with more than different weaves in the collection. Plant fibres do not keep well under the burial conditions in Norway, but we managed to identify ten non-mineralized and non-charred finds with fragments of plant fibre material belonging most probably to clothing and accessories.
Fibres from these ten finds were investigated using the modified Herzog test.

On this page I’ll try and unravel some of the markings that appear within the “deadwax” or “run-out groove” sections on US 60’s discs. This will be an on-going project, so all additional information is welcome. First up, here’s a quick “rule of thumb” disc-dating grid covering five major labels and the infamous West Coast based Monarch pressing plant. Further breakdowns and explanations follow this grid: Capitol Records Found extensively on the Capitol, Tower and Uptown labels, the markings of the Capitol pressing plants are either of the following: The “Starburst” or “Daisy” stamp, which is basically an asterix looking shape, is their California pressing plants tag 3.
A “R” followed by a 3 or 4 digit number etched into the deadwax on some Uptown releases were pressed by Rainbo Record pressings Atlantic Records As an example, Vala Reegan’s “Fireman” has on the right hand side of the label, and 66C on the left. So does that make it a 64 or a 66 record?
