The short search for Rodale’s Organic Life’s new editor-in-chief is over. Melanie Hansche has been promoted to the role, effective immediately. Hansche joined Rodale in 2014 as its executive director of food content and strategy. Under her guidance the company reimagined several of its food products, including the Rodale Recipe Finder and the Rodale Test Kitchen. Before Rodale, Hanche’s career highlights include: serving as editor at donna hay magazine in Australia; editing several bestselling cookbooks for Donna Hay; and serving as a food critic and writer for several publications. “Melanie is a strong leader with a keen eye for vibrant design and compelling content,” says Chairman and CEO Maria Rodale in a statement shared with min. “Having worked very closely with her on my upcoming cookbook, Scratch, I am confident her inspiring vision and understanding of theRodale’s Organic Life audience will enable her to take this brand to new heights.” The promotion doesn’t come as a surprise since Hanche was serving as interim editor-in-chief after James Oseland left the company back in March to pursue a book and other endeavors. Oseland led the relaunch of ROL last year, after it rebranded from the original company flagship, Organic Gardening. Hansche indicates in a statement that, for now, her objective is to focus on the brand’s existing strengths. “I’m looking forward to working with the team to bring our audience compelling, clever and sassy content in the organic space that’s practical, fun and a little forgiving—meeting them at whatever stage of their organic journey they might be on—fat, sugar and bacon included!”

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks while inaugurating the Golden Jubilee programme of Barisal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College (BSMC) through video conference from her Ganabhaban residence on Monday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said the second nuclear power plant would be constructed in the southern part of the country.“The government has already conducted survey in several islands in Barisal and we will choose any of those islands to construct the country’s next nuclear power plant,” the premier said this while inaugurating the Golden Jubilee programme of Barisal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College (BSMC) through video conference from her Ganabhaban residence.The prime minister said a feasibility study is also going on to supply gas from Bhola to Barisal aimed at flourishing industries in the region.Health minister Mohammad Nasim spoke on the occasion from BSMC premises while state minister for health and family welfare Zahid Malik was present at the Ganabhaban.Later, the prime minister exchanged views with government officials, teachers and former students of the college and assured them of taking projects to resolve the residential problems of the teachers, students, nurses and staffs.Pointing out her government’s plans for development of country’s southern part, the prime minister said the region was neglected for a long time. Barisal, once known as the ‘Shashya Bhandar’ (crop storage) and ‘Venice of Bangla’ has lost its glory due to negligence.The present government after taking office in 1996 has been conducting massive development work in the southern part of the country particularly for improving the communications system.‘We want to regain the glory of Barisal through boosting agricultural production, industrialisation and infrastructural development of the region,” she said.The Padma Bridge along with rail line would play important role in socioeconomic development of Barisal, she said adding that the rail line on Padma Bridge would go up to Paira Port via Barisal. A feasibility study of the project, with the support of the British government, is being conducted, she added.Sheikh Hasina said bridges are being constructed on Paira River, Bishkhali River and Agunmakha River to establish direct road communication from Barisal to Bhola and Barguna.Sheikh Hasina said the Paira Port will be turned into a deep sea port in future. Construction of a 1300 MW power plant is about to be completed, she said.Sheikh Hasina said to ensure healthcare services for all the government has established 18,500 community clinics and union health centres across the country. Besides, the government has taken steps to ensure food security and nutrition for everyone.The government has established institutes for treatment of kidney, neurology, cancer, ENT and ophthalmology, burn and plastic surgery as well as created post graduate nursing institutes to provide high quality nursing services to patients.Later, the prime minister through a video conference from her Ganabhaban residence inaugurated four multistoried building comprising 345 flats constructed at Doyagonj and Dhalpur for cleaners of the Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC).LGRD and cooperatives minister Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain spoke on the occasion while senior secretary of the LGRD and cooperatives Jafar Ahmed Khan gave a presentation on the project.Mayor of DSCC Mohammad Sayeed Khokon, chief executive officer Khan Mohammad Bilal and a number of beneficiaries of the project spoke on the occasion from Doyagonj side.The government in 2013 took up the project for constructing five residential buildings at Doyagonj, five at Dhalpur and two at Sutrapur at a cost of Tk 1,900 million for cleaners of the city corporation.Under the project four buildings were inaugurated today, Monday and construction work of eight other buildings is going on.Addressing the function the prime minister hoped that children of the cleaners will get proper education and prepare themselves in operating modern equipment of cleaning.She said the government would procure modern vehicles and equipment for conservancy department of the city corporations to conduct daily cleaning operation.“We want every homeless person to get home. The cleaners provide us services to keep our neighborhood neat and clean. So it’s the duty of the government to give them a clean environment to live in,” she added.
(Phys.org)—A team of researchers with members from the University of Arizona and New Mexico State University has discovered how a species of moth is able to repair oxidative muscle damage without consuming antioxidants. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes their study of the hawkmoth and how they discovered an adaption that allowed it to remain free of muscle damage. Carlos Martinez del Rio and Michael Dillon with the University of Wyoming offer a Perspective piece on the work done by the team in the same journal issue and give some historical background to explain why some pollinators needed to develop an alternative means for protecting their muscles.

Credit: Bruce D. Taubert Tricking moths into revealing the computational underpinnings of sensory integration As Martinez del Rio and Dillon note, when muscles expend energy they create byproducts called reactive oxygen species, which are damaging to cells. Most animals prevent damage to muscle cells by consuming foods with antioxidants in them. But some creatures with muscles do not consume antioxidants and still manage to avoid muscle damage—hawkmoths, for example, live on a diet of nectar and nothing else, which means they never consume any antioxidants. Furthermore, they also use their muscles a lot—they furiously beat their wings to allow them to hover near a nectar producing plant while they take a quick sip. Until now, it was not known how the moths pulled off this trick.To find out the researchers obtained a collection of hawkmoths and began feeding them nectar while also measuring them for muscle damage after they took short flights. They then compared those results with measurements taken from moths that were not given nectar—the control group. The researchers report that the moths that were fed nectar flew farther than the control group, yet had less oxidative damage—remarkably, they also had higher levels of antioxidants in their systems. The researchers continued their experiments by adding different carbon isotopes to the nectar they fed to the moths to allow for tracking how the nectar was metabolized. They found that the moths used what is known as the pentose phosphate pathway (a metabolic pathway that generates NADPH, pentose and ribose) to convert some of the carbohydrates (glucose) in their diet into antioxidants—they did not need to ingest antioxidants because they were generating their own. Martinez del Rio and Dillon suggest that other insects and mammals likely use the same process and some may rely on a combination of ingestion and conversion to meet their antioxidant needs.

DOI: 10.1126/science.aah4634AbstractNectar-feeding animals have among the highest recorded metabolic rates. High aerobic performance is linked to oxidative damage in muscles. Antioxidants in nectar are scarce to nonexistent. We propose that nectarivores use nectar sugar to mitigate the oxidative damage caused by the muscular demands of flight. We found that sugar-fed moths had lower oxidative damage to their flight muscle membranes than unfed moths. Using respirometry coupled with δ13C analyses, we showed that moths generate antioxidant potential by shunting nectar glucose to the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP), resulting in a reduction in oxidative damage to the flight muscles. We suggest that nectar feeding, the use of PPP, and intense exercise are causally linked and have allowed the evolution of powerful fliers that feed on nectar. © 2017 Phys.org
