Nobel Peace Prize for antirape activists Nadia Murad and Denis Mukwege

Ms Murad and Dr Mukwege made a “crucial contribution” to fighting violence against women(BBC) The 2018 Nobel Peace Prize has gone to campaigners against rape in warfare, Nadia Murad and Denis Mukwege.Ms Murad is an Iraqi Yazidi who was tortured and raped by Islamic State militants and later became the face of a campaign to free the Yazidi people.Dr Mukwege is a Congolese gynaecologist who, along with his colleagues, has treated tens of thousands of victims.Some 331 individuals and organisations were nominated for the prestigious peace award this year.The winners announced in the Norwegian capital Oslo on Friday won the award for their “efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war”, Berit Reiss-Andersen, the Nobel committee chair, said.The pair both made a “crucial contribution to focusing attention on, and combating, such war crimes”, Ms Reiss-Andersen added.How have the winners reacted?Ms Murad, 25, told Reuters she shared the award “with all Yazidis, with all the Iraqis, Kurds and all the minorities and all survivors of sexual violence around the world”.However, her initial thoughts were with her mother, who died after Islamic State (IS) militants overran their home in 2014, according to a spokesman for her trust.New Iraqi President Barham Saleh called the award “an honour for all Iraqis who fought terrorism and bigotry”.Dr Mukwege was operating at his hospital when he heard he had won the prize.“I was in the operating room so when they started to make noise around [it] I wasn’t really thinking about what was going on, and suddenly some people came in and told me the news,” he told Norwegian newspaper VG.He dedicated his award to all women affected by sexual violence.“This Nobel prize is a recognition of the suffering and the failure to adequately compensate women who are victims of rape and sexual violence in all countries around the world,” he told reporters gathered outside his clinic.Who is Nadia Murad?Ms Murad did not just lose her mother in the genocide. She endured three months as a sex slave at the hands of IS militants. She was bought and sold several times and subjected to sexual and physical abuse during her captivity.After escaping, she became an activist for the Yazidi people, campaigning to help put an end to human trafficking and calling on the world to take a tougher line on rape as a weapon of war.Ms Murad described her escape in a BBC interview in 2016, detailing how the women who were held captive were treated by IS.She was awarded the Vaclav Havel Human Rights Prize by the Council of Europe in 2016 and called for an international court to judge crimes committed by IS in her acceptance speech in Strasbourg.Ms Murad, the first Iraqi to win the award, was named the UN’s first goodwill ambassador for survivors of human trafficking later that year.Who is Denis Mukwege?He has spent decades helping rape victims in the Democratic Republic of Congo.He and his colleagues are said to have treated about 30,000 rape victims, developing great expertise in the treatment of serious injuries sustained during sex assaults that were carried out as a weapon of war.The 63-year-old has won a number of international prizes, including the 2008 UN Human Rights Prize, and was named African of the Year in 2009.He lives under the permanent protection of UN peacekeepers at his hospital and has also previously called for a tougher line on rape as a weapon of war.Denis Mukwege in his own wordsIt was in 1999 that our first rape victim was brought into the hospital. After being raped, bullets had been fired into her genitals and thighs.I thought that was a barbaric act of war but the real shock came three months later. Forty-five women came to us with the same story, they were all saying: “People came into my village and raped me, tortured me.”Other women came to us with burns. They said that after they had been raped, chemicals had been poured on their genitals.I started to ask myself what was going on. These weren’t just violent acts of war, but part of a strategy. You had situations where multiple people were raped at the same time, publicly – a whole village might be raped during the night. In doing this, they hurt not just the victims but the whole community, which they force to watch.The result of this strategy is that people are forced to flee their villages, abandon their fields, their resources, everything. It’s very effective.

Niche Media Restructures

first_imgThe restructuring and layoffs come of the heels of a reported 10 percent workforce reduction at Greenspun.Consolidating and ExpandingIn a statement, the company said it was expanding its custom publishing division and was promoting Ocean Drive magazine editor-in-chief Glenn Albin to editorial director, and former art director Carlos Suarez to creative director of Niche Media. In their newly-created roles, Albin and Suarez will be responsible for growing each publication’s editorial teams and strengthening each “local presence,” the company says. According to the source, Niche management has been tasked with “hiring upwards of 25 new people over next few months.” Niche says it plans to increase frequency in 2009 from six to eight issues per year at Boston Common, Capitol File and Philadelphia Style magazines. Los Angeles Confidential will increase frequency from eight to 10 issues per year.“Niche Media has grown 15 to 20 percent per year on average,” Binn said. “These developments will propel us into our next phase.” After a week full of reports about layoffs at its various products, Niche Media has confirmed that the company has undergone a restructuring.Over the past two years, owner Greenspun Corp. has taken what it calls an “aggressive approach” to its expansion, having acquired Niche Media, the Ocean Drive Media Group and Philadelphia Style magazine. All have been operated under Niche Media.“Each of the acquired businesses were self-sufficient and, to an extent, operated independently,” Niche Media CEO Jason Binn told FOLIO:. “This restructuring was a way for Niche to realize its operating efficiencies, leverage its resources and reduce the redundancies in order for us to expand our business into 2009 as a stronger company—unified under one umbrella.”While Binn declined to comment on the number of employees cut as a result of the restructuring, a well-placed source who wished to remain anonymous told FOLIO: the cuts were “in low single-digit percentage” of the company’s overall workforce.last_img read more

Arkansas National Guard Proposes More Closures

first_imgAfter closing seven National Guard armories in fiscal 2015, the Arkansas National Guard is proposing to shutter three readiness centers in south Arkansas as part of belt-tightening efforts nationwide by the Guard.“Financially we just can’t support the centers we’ve got,” said Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Joel Lynch.Closing the armories in Prescott, Magnolia and Monticello would save the Guard $130,572 annually, reported Arkansas Online. The three armories were built in the 1970s and are located within 50 miles of newer facilities.Last year’s closure of seven armories, located primarily in the northeastern part of the state, will save about $268,500 annually.Officials in Magnolia and Monticello said they were interested in obtaining the closed buildings, as the Guard has proposed, but Prescott leaders indicated they would like the Guard to keep the armory open.The state Guard’s move to close readiness centers follows a National Guard Bureau report that considered population shifts, the proximity of armories to one another and the Guard’s requirements to determine how many armories were needed in 12 states. That report concluded that Arkansas needed only 42 armories, not the 62 that it had at the beginning of FY 2015, Lynch said.“We think that 42 is more drastic than it needs to be,” Lynch said. “But we do need to reduce our size,” he said.Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) will make the final decision on whether to close the three armories. He approved the seven closures last year but opposed an eighth one, according to the story.

Was Govinda actually offered role in James Camerons Avatar This is what

first_imgWas Govinda actually offered Avatar?Varinder ChawlaSenior actor Govinda was vehemently trolled after he had claimed that James Cameron had offered him a role in his big Hollywood film Avatar, which he had denied. He had even said that the title Avatar was suggested by Govinda himself. Now a co-actor of Govinda appears to be validate the actor’s claims.After Govinda defended himself amidst the disbelief in he being offered a role in Avatar, one of his co-actors also claimed that he is not making any bluff.”He was always talking about the films that were offered to him. And I remember he mentioned to me that he had been offered Avatar way back in 2006 – 2007. So, it is quite possible that this offer did come his way. Why do we have to doubt him, just because it is Hollywood and James Cameron?” Desi Martini quoted the co-actor as saying without revealing the name.Taking note of the trolling on social media, Govinda had earlier said that he does not appreciate the “prejudiced behaviour” that makes it look like he does not have the reputation of being offered a role in such a big movie.”I am not active on social media, but my daughter Tina keeps me in the loop. I am fine with people wondering how someone like Govinda could refuse a James Cameron film. I can understand where they are coming from. I respect that thought. They are entitled to have that opinion, but to say how come Govinda got that offer in the first place, is wrong. It’s not like meri aukat nahi hai. It’s prejudiced behaviour,” he had said in an interview.Meanwhile, trade analyst Amod Mehra recently told Bollywood Hungama that Govinda was indeed a part of a film titled Avatar, which was not directed by James Cameron but by Pahlaj Nihalani.”Govinda did work in a film titled Avatar. The producer was Pahlaj Nihalani. The film had been completed, but it never saw the light of day. In that film, Govinda plays a sports coach,” he had told the publication.last_img read more

9 building owners in DSCC fined for not aiding vector control

first_imgAn aedes mosquitoMobile courts of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) and Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) in separate drives on Monday fined nine building owners and Partex Group a total of Tk 428,000 upon finding larvae of dengue virus-carrying Aedes mosquito on their premises in different parts of the city. The DSCC conducted drives in 225 buildings in Nayapaltan, Segunbagicha, Topkhana, Dhanmondi and Jatrabari areas of the city. The two Dhaka city corporations are mainly asking for residents’ cooperation in vector control – by cutting down on conditions that allow mosquitoes to breed.Vector control is any method to limit or eradicate the mammals, birds, insects or other arthropods (here collectively called “vectors”) which transmit disease pathogens. The most frequent type of vector control is mosquito control using a variety of strategies. DNCC executive magistrate Sajid Anwar conducted a drive at the main office of Partex Group in city’s Mohakhali area and fined the business house Tk 2 lakh after finding Aedes larvae in abandoned tyres, containers, bottles and motorcycles. The drive at Partex Group was conducted in the presence of the DNCC Mayor Md Atiqul Islam. DSCC executive magistrate Sheikh Zahid Hossain conducted a drive at Eastern View in the city’s Nayapaltan area and fined them Tk 75,000 for similar reasons. Its executive magistrate Mizanur Rahman fined the owners of two buildings in Dhanmondi and Topkhana Road Tk 50,000 each against existence of Aedes larvae in their respective buildings. A building owner named Jagonnath Saha in Lalbagh was fined Tk 10,000 by a mobile court led by executive magistrate Babar Ali. Meanwhile, DSCC executive magistrates Shahid Ullah, Atiqullah and Sonia Hossain fined owners of five more buildings a combined Tk 43,000 for failing to comply with the directives of the city corporation. So far, DSCC has conducted anti-Aedes drives in 58,748 houses of the city and asked the owners to destroy larvae of Aedes mosquito.last_img read more

None. Remember what Yoda so famously said: “Always in motion is the future.” Re: “You should be happy.” Why would that be the case? First, I’m not a registered Democrat, so I don’t even have a say in what that party does. Second, I’m not a socialist — no matter how vehemently you insist otherwise. I actually don’t think very much of the kind of “socialism” I see advocated in the US … pretty much everything they want to do would be brutally expensive or simply absurd. And most of those “socialists” are well aware their positions are ridiculously expensive, if not just plain ridiculous, which leads me to wonder why they even advocate them in the first place: Either they’re so idealistic as to be insane, or they’re being brazenly cynical, proposing measures they know they can’t implement, just to get votes. (Note: It’s not only Lefists/socialists/Democrats who do such things. Most politicians will, at some point. And it often happens on the Right, e.g. when Bob Stefanowski ran on the GOP ticket for governor in my home state of CT on a platform of abolishing both the income and corporate taxes. There is no f-ing way he’d ever be able to do either of those things … it simply could not ever happen! But he pushed them nonetheless. His entire campaign was predicated on those positions, and literally nothing else. Which is why he lost. If he’d been less of a “let’s end all taxation” buffoon, he might actually have gotten elected.)  March 8, 2019 at 7:29 am If only …. edddoerr says: floydlee says: By: Laurie Kellman March 7, 2019 at 12:11 pm “Same with Soros”That is one of the most common anti-semitic appeals made to pretend it isn’t an anti-semitic appeal.

I guess since Republicans are united to Donald Trump like a barnacle is to a boat, the press have no division on the Republican side to get titillated over. It’s true that we Democrats are like cats who do our own thing, unlike the Republicans who are dogs forever in need of an alpha lest they lose their way. But I can assure Ms. Kellman that we Democrats are 100% united in the one major thing that matters most: preventing Donald Trump from presiding over the collapse of our once-strong, once-great democratic republic. To that end, nothing else matters, and there are certainly no divisions among Democrats on that front.LOCK HIM UP!

Your own ideology, Rightism, does something similar … or maybe you didn’t know that? For instance, they follow this syllogism: 1. Some Democrats/Leftists claim, or admit, they’re “socialists” … 2. Thus, all Democrats/Leftists must be socialists. And onto this, they tack: 3. Venezuela is a “socialist” country … 4. Thus, all Democrats/Leftists want the US to become Venezuela. You hear this sort of reasoning all the time on Fox News and from the mouths of Limbaugh, Levin, Ingraham, etc. It’s a constant stream of endless “associafying” (i.e. assuming equivalencies that don’t actually exist based on overlaps and associations).  PsiCop says: March 7, 2019 at 6:52 pm Spuddie says: Bill Paca says: https://disqus.com/home/discussion/religionnews/anti_semitism_or_legitimate_criticism_of_the_state_of_israel/#comment-4369626189,Pope opens Lent with call to avoid ‘clutches of consumerism’ What kool-aid?Are the democrats of today similar to democrats during Bill Clinton’s presidency?

Yep, thought so.You lived through it; you more than anyone here would be able to verify it. But you won’t because your intellectually dishonest. March 8, 2019 at 7:25 am Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,WASHINGTON (AP) — Back in January, the Democrats welcomed their brash young newcomers to Congress with smiles and hugs. That was before the new colleagues dragged the party’s simmering divisions over Israel out in the open.Provocative comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota have thrust the Democrats into an uncomfortable debate over Israel policy a few weeks before a high-profile conference at which senior Democrats typically make a show of support for the Jewish state. Increasingly, the rift appears as much generational as ideological, with newly elected Democrats showing less deference to the party line.RELATED: Rep. Omar touches a third rail (COMMENTARY)Omar became the flashpoint after she suggested last week that Israel’s supporters are pushing U.S. lawmakers to take a pledge of “allegiance to a foreign country.” It’s at least the third time she has forced older, pro-Israel Democrats who run the House into awkward territory over U.S.-Israeli policy.This time Omar is not apologizing. And this time pro-Israel Democrats led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi are not just warning her about the dangers of Jewish tropes. They are expected to offer a resolution condemning anti-Semitism on the House floor. Although no vote on the resolution is yet scheduled, Democrats said it could come as soon as Thursday (March 7).Republicans have been happy to stoke the furor, with President Trump tweeting it’s “shameful that House Democrats won’t take a stronger stand against Anti-Semitism in their conference.” Trump himself faced such criticism in 2016 for circulating a six-pointed star alongside a photo of Hillary Clinton, a pile of money and the words “most corrupt candidate ever.”Democratic leaders are in a bind, torn between a need to admonish Omar and their desire to defend one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.“Accusations of dual loyalty generally have an insidious, bigoted history,” an early draft of the resolution reads in part. “The House of Representatives acknowledges the dangerous consequences of perpetuating anti-Semitic stereotypes and rejects anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States.”Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced in a meeting of leading Democrats late Tuesday that the text will be updated to include anti-Muslim bias, according to a senior Democratic aide who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private meeting. Other Democrats said an outpouring of support for Omar prompted leaders to consider broadening the measure to avoid dissension. Omar did not speak to reporters outside her office on Tuesday evening.“There is a lot (of) emotional disquiet about the situation, and it’s a good time to restate our values,” said Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, who is Jewish and a member of leadership, as he exited a meeting in Pelosi’s office. “That’s what I hope our resolution can do.”The text, which includes a history of bigotry against Muslims and blacks as well as Jews, sounds unobjectionable by itself. But the fact that senior Democrats felt obliged to put the House on record on the topic points to a transformation in the country — mostly among Democrats — about supporting the Jewish state.In a poll by the Pew Research Center in January of last year, 46 percent of Americans said they sympathized more with Israel and 16 percent with the Palestinians in their Middle East discord.But Democrats are about evenly divided, with about a quarter sympathizing with each side and the rest saying they side with neither or don’t know — and in recent years they have become less likely to sympathize with Israel. Liberal Democrats were nearly twice as likely to say they sympathize more with the Palestinians (35 percent) than with Israel (19 percent). Older Americans were much more likely to say they sympathize with Israel than with the Palestinians, with more division among younger Americans.Omar, a Somali-American, says that what she’s questioning is the influence game in Washington and she worries that anything she says about Israel and its treatment of Palestinians will be construed as anti-Semitic.“Being opposed to (Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu and the occupation is not the same as being anti-Semitic,” she tweeted on Sunday. “I am grateful to the many Jewish allies who have spoken out and said the same.”Democrats in Congress remain largely supportive of Israel. Pelosi, for example, often attends the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington, which is coming up this month.Omar on Tuesday got a boost from allies who point out that she, too, has been the target of threats and bigotry.Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested in a tweet that her fellow freshman was being treated unfairly.“No one seeks this level of reprimand when members make statements about Latinx + other communities,” the New York Democrat wrote.Jewish groups generally said they support the resolution, but expressed concern.“We are concerned that the timing of this resolution will be seen as singling out and focusing special condemnation on a Muslim woman of color as if her views and insensitive comments pose a greater threat than the torrent of hatred that the white nationalist right continues to level against Jews, Muslims, people of color and other vulnerable minority groups,” said J Street, a nonprofit that says it’s a home for “pro-Israel, pro-Peace Americans.”Back home in Minnesota, a collection of elected officials started a #StandWithIlhan hashtag with a statement that reads in part: “We call on Democrats to stand with Ilhan against Republican efforts to pit Jews and Muslims against each other.”But there also was talk of finding a candidate to challenge her in 2020.“She is rapidly making herself a pariah in Congress, rather than an effective representative for her constituents,” said state Sen. Ron Latz, who is Jewish, lives in her district and has been critical of her recent statements on Israel.Earlier this year, Omar apologized for a 2012 tweet in which she said Israel had “hypnotized” America. And last month, she apologized for suggesting that members of Congress support Israel because they are paid to do so.That earned her stern rebukes from Pelosi and House Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, among others. This time, Engel declared that Omar’s suggestion about divided loyalties was a “vile” stereotype that had no place on his committee.Republicans demanded that Democrats throw Omar off Engel’s panel. There was no sign of that happening.“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee,” Omar tweeted.(Associated Press writers Andrew Taylor, Emily Swanson and Hannah Fingerhut in Washington and Doug Glass in Minneapolis contributed to this report.) Bill Paca says: Omar is just supporting a two-state solution and the concept of justice in international affairs. Supposedly, that Is just US policy, and has been for 70 years. The major Jewish organizations in the US do not see it your way.The reason is that Jews have been there before: accusations of dual loyalty preceded pogroms.Had she been criticizing the “Likud darlings”, she would have left American Jews out of her accusations.It is somewhat amusing to watch the practitioners of identity politics like yourself try to remove yourselves from your own petards after being hoisted on them. Both Israel and Saudi Arabia are American allies.She opposes supporting Israel and convinces enough folks in Congress to agree with her and pull American support.The Arabs smell victory and wipe Israel out.That is Israel “sold out”.She opposes supporting Saudi Arabia and convinces enough folks in Congress to agree with her and pull American support.The Iranians smell victory and wipe Saudi Arabia out.That is Saudi Arabia “sold out”.It is not very complicated.

Both the suspect and the victim are reportedly said to be indigenes of Item in the Bende Local Government Area of the state In India at least 14341 people killed themselves using insecticides in 2014 The following year the number increased by nearly 70 percent to 23930 From 109 percent in 2014 the percentage of suicides involving insecticides went up to 18 percent in 2015 according to data from the National Crime Records Bureau However official figures do not reflect reality A study on suicide mortality in India put the number at nearly 50 percent “Poisoning mostly from pesticides (chiefly organophosphates) used in agriculture was the leading method of suicide in both men and women corresponding to about 92000 deaths nationally at ages 15 years and older” reads the study This is more than 250 suicides a day in India alone Across the world one person commits suicide using pesticides every 40 seconds according to Centre for Pesticide Suicide Prevention (CPSP) a philanthropically funded research and policy initiative within the University of Edinburgh UK The best way to prevent these suicides is to ban highly hazardous pesticides the CPSP wrote to the Centre on 30 May “Most persons who engage in suicidal behaviour do not want to die with suicide serving as a response to psychosocial stressors A large proportion of pesticide suicides are impulsive with a person contemplating suicide for less than 10 minutes If a person is prevented from using a highly lethal method they may use a method with lower lethality with an increased chance of survival or the suicidal impulse may pass” reads the their expert submission to SK Malhotra Agriculture Commissioner Department of Agriculture & Family Welfare Ministry of Agriculture and Family Welfare Government of India Malhotra is heading a committee that was set up in October 2017 with a two-month tenure to evaluate objections and suggestions received in response to a gazette notification on banning/phasing out of certain pesticides The notification itself was based on recommendations given by the Anupam Verma Committee which were further reviewed by the registration committee that Malhotra now heads Representational image PTI After comments were received in response to the notification in December 2016 the government had set up a committee at the end of March 2017 headed by JS Sandhu the then deputy director general (crop science) in Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) This committee was asked to submit its report within one month However Sandhu did not finalise a report and he retired in July 2017 Three months later in October SK Malhotra took over The Anupam Verma Committee was set up in 2013 to review 66 pesticides used in the country but banned elsewhere and to make recommendations on whether to ban these pesticides In 2015 the Verma committee recommended that 12 highly toxic pesticides should be banned from 1 January 2018 and six more should be phased out by 1 January 2021 In March 2018 the Supreme Court passed orders specifying 19 June 2018 as the deadline for the evaluation to be finished and for a decision to be taken by the Ministry of Agriculture’s committee (incorrectly referred to by the government counsel as the Dr JS Sandhu Committee even though he had retired by then) The court further ordered that subsequent implementation of the decision should take place within 15 days “Forming committee after committee is a delaying tactic being adopted by the government I don’t understand why the government is dragging its feet to simply implement a decision that it took in 2015” said Kavitha Kuruganti convenor of Alliance for Sustainable and Holistic Agriculture (ASHA) Following the deaths of at least 40 farmers due to pesticide poisoning in 2017 Kuruganti and other farmer activists petitioned the Supreme Court on the inordinate delays in banning at least 99 pesticides that are banned in more than one other country and 104 pesticides that are banned in at least one other country in the world “The government doesn’t seem to realise the magnitude of the problem Hundreds of farmers are killing themselves every day and the government cannot afford to be this lax It looks like it is under pressure from the pesticide industry” said Kuruganti Implementing legislations to limit the use of highly toxic pesticides has been a highly successful approach to suicide reduction in countries like Sri Lanka Bangladesh and South Korea where small-scale farming is common said Centre For Pesticide Suicide Prevention Sri Lanka saw a 70 percent reduction in suicides over 20 years after the ban of several pesticides “After the introduction of highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) into small-scale rural agricultural practice in the 1960s the suicide rate increased from 5/100000 people older than 8 years to 57/100000 in 1995” reads their expert submission Taking note of the increasing suicides the Pesticide Registrar of the island country banned parathion and methylparathion in 1984 Eleven years later all WHO Class I toxicity pesticides were banned in 1995 “There was a sudden rapid fall in total suicides from that time Subsequent bans of WHO Toxicity Class II pesticides endosulfan (in 1998) dimethoate fenthion and paraquat (in 2008-2011) have led to further major reductions in case fatality for pesticide poisoning and suicides” reads their report Late last year the issue of pesticides took centre stage in the national conversation as at least 40 people had died after accidentally inhaling them Several theories were floated on why so many accidents happened in 2017 alone — including good rains subsequently taller crops causing farmers to spray pesticides upwards However of the 40 who died 12 had inhaled Monocrotophos In 2013 the same pesticide was responsible for the death of 23 children in Bihar when a vessel used to store pesticides was inadvertently used for cooking This highly toxic pesticide which the UN asked India to ban as early as 2009 is still easily available across the country While it is banned in at least 46 countries Anupam Verma thinks the onus is on farmers and not the government “I have seen farmers sitting on the back of tractors and spraying openly without any protection for themselves But given such a large number of deaths at one time there has to be more to it than just spraying Just by spraying people would not die because antidotes are available” he told Firstpost in an earlier interview Nevertheless monocrotophos is in the list of 12 pesticides that were to be banned by 1 January this year Six months later they are still available Despite several attempts to contact SK Malhotra was not available for a comment From imaging babies to blasting apart kidney stones ultrasound has proved to be a versatile tool for physicians Now several research teams aim to unleash the technology on some of the most feared brain diseases The blood-brain barrier a tightly packed layer of cells that lines the brain’s blood vessels protects it from infections toxins and other threats but makes the organ frustratingly hard to treat A strategy that combines ultrasound with microscopic blood-borne bubbles can briefly open the barrier in theory giving drugs or the immune system access to the brain In the clinic and the lab that promise is being evaluated This month in one of the first clinical tests Todd Mainprize a neurosurgeon at the University of Toronto in Canada hopes to use ultrasound to deliver a dose of chemotherapy to a malignant brain tumor And in some of the most dramatic evidence of the technique’s potential a research team reports this week in Science Translational Medicine that they used it to rid mice of abnormal brain clumps similar to those in Alzheimer’s disease restoring lost memory and cognitive functions If such findings can be translated from mice to humans “it will revolutionize the way we treat brain disease” says biophysicist Kullervo Hynynen of the Sunnybrook Research Institute in Toronto who originated the ultrasound method Some scientists stress that rodent findings can be hard to translate to humans and caution that there are safety concerns about zapping the brain with even the low-intensity ultrasound used in the new study which is similar to that used in diagnostic scans Opening up the blood-brain barrier just enough to get a beneficial effect without scorching tissue triggering an excessive immune reaction or causing hemorrhage is the “crux” says Brian Bacskai a neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston who studies Alzheimer’s disease and used to work with Hynynen Safely and temporarily opening the blood-brain barrier is a long-sought goal in medicine About a decade ago Hynynen began exploring a strategy combining ultrasound and microbubbles The premise is that ultrasound causes such bubbles to expand and contract jostling the cells forming the blood-brain barrier and making it slightly leaky EMMANUEL THVENOT/LAB OF ISABELLE AUBERT; COURTESY OF SUNNYBROOK RESEARCH INSTITUTE That could help cancer physicians such as Mainprize deliver chemotherapy drugs into the brain Hynynen also hypothesized that the brief leakage would rev up the brain’s inflammatory response against β amyloid—the toxic protein that clumps outside neurons in Alzheimer’s and may be responsible for killing them Disposing of such debris is normally the role of the microglia a type of brain cell But previous studies have shown that when β amyloid forms clumps in the brain it “seems to overwhelm microglia” Bacskai says Exposing the cells to anti bodies that leak in when the blood-brain barrier is breached could spur them to “wake up and do their jobs” he says Some antibodies in blood may also bind directly to the β-amyloid protein and flag the clumps for destruction Hynynen and others have recently tested the ultrasound strategy in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s In December 2014 for example he and colleagues reported in Radiology that the method reduces amyloid plaques in a strain of mice engineered to develop the deposits leading to improvements in cognition and spatial learning Microglia consumed more β amyloid after the treatment suggesting the cells do play a role in the effect says neuroscientist Isabelle Aubert who collaborates with Hynynen at Sunnybrook This week neuroscientist Jürgen Gtz of the Queensland Brain Institute in St Lucia Australia and his PhD student Gerhard Leinenga report that they have built on Hynynen and Aubert’s protocol using a different mouse model of Alzheimer’s After injecting these animals with a solution of microscopic bubbles they scanned an ultrasound beam in a zigzag pattern across each animal’s entire skull rather than focusing on discrete areas as others have done After six to eight weekly treatments the team tested the rodents on three different memory tasks Alzheimer’s mice in the control group which received microbubble injections but no stimulation showed no improvement Mice whose blood-brain barriers had been made permeable in contrast saw “full restoration of memory in all three tasks” Gtz says The team also found a two- to fivefold reduction in different types of β-amyloid plaques in the brain tissue of the treated group The attempt to stoke microglia’s appetite appeared to work; Gtz and Leinenga found much more β-amyloid protein within the trash-eating cells of treated animals Yet rousing microglia may not be the only mechanism responsible for the rodents’ memory boost Aubert notes She and Hynynen recently reported in Brain Stimulation that ultrasound also boosts the birth and growth of new neurons in mice Gtz and Leinenga next plan to test the whole-brain ultrasound scan method in larger animals with β-amyloid deposits such as sheep The approach which could in theory be used for other brain diseases involving abnormal protein clumps “is exciting” says Gerald Grant a neurosurgeon at the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto California “We’ve been thinking of opening up the blood-brain barrier as a way to get things into the brain but this pays attention to getting things out” It’s far from settled that eliminating β-amyloid deposits outside of neurons is the key to treating or stopping Alzheimer’s disease however And Bacskai is skeptical that the mouse results say much about the technique’s potential in humans The range between a mouse that can learn and one that cannot learn “is pretty small” so big gains in behavioral tests in mice may mean nothing in humans he says He adds that nonstandardized ultrasound equipment makes it hard to answer basic safety questions: “How long is the blood-brain barrier open How big are the pores What’s the damage” Hynynen who is working with a medical imaging company to commercialize the technique notes that ultrasound application to the brains of animals including rabbits and monkeys has produced no negative side effects And Mainprize’s clinical trial may provide more safety data He hopes to open the blood-barrier to increase chemotherapy delivery to a brain cancer patient just before he operates to remove the tumor Using Hynynen’s technology he and colleagues will apply ultrasound and microbubbles to tissue in and around the tumor as well as to several unaffected brain areas Then they’ll examine excised tissue for hemorrhages and to see if the treatment boosted the concentration of the drug A similar trial is now recruiting participants in France If these phase I trials establish safety “it opens the door for phase II trials looking to see if there’s any benefit” to opening the blood-brain barrier including for conditions beyond cancer Mainprize says Despite his doubts Bacskai can’t fully resist the dream driving this fledging field “Imagine if your grandmother went to the clinic once per year and it cleared amyloid β and that was all it took—no surgery no drugs It would be amazing”
