Detroit Business Owner Spits on Black Man in Parking Dispute

first_imgBy The Associated PressDETROIT (AP) — A parking dispute at a social justice gathering in Detroit ended with a White business owner spitting on a Black security guard, who captured the altercation on video and posted it on Facebook.Ibrahim Mission was providing security at the event Tuesday when Detroit Mercantile Co. owner Robert Stanzler grew disgruntled over some participants parking on his property, the Detroit Free Press reported.In this July 18, 2018 photo, Ibrahim Mission sits outside The Eastern, an Eastern Market event space where Detroit Mercantile Co. Owner Robert Stanzler spat in his face during a dispute Tuesday, July 17, in Detroit. (Rochelle Riley/Detroit Free Press via AP)Stanzler asked Mission to stop people from parking near his business, which sells antiques and Michigan wares. Mission told Stanzler to speak to the building owner, and Stanzler responded by making an offensive hand gesture and spitting on Mission’s face.Maxyne Franklin said members of her group were moving their cars during the incident. Franklin said it was “outrageously disgusting behavior and completely unnecessary.”Police arrested Stanzler for simple assault. He was released Wednesday and apologized, calling his actions “unconscionable, offensive and disrespectful.”“I take full responsibility for my actions, and want to convey regret for my gross and despicable behavior during the course of my argument with Mr. Mission,” Stanzler said.He also apologized to those who witnessed the incident, his staff, other business owners in the area and Detroit residents.Mission, who grew up in Detroit, said he has worked security at many different types of events with people from all backgrounds.“I’ve encountered somebody saying a racial slur, somebody not being too happy with security, but never ran into where an individual, especially a White individual, felt comfortable enough to spit on me,” he said.Mission said Stanzler’s actions were humiliating and disrespectful.He said, “People like this should not be allowed to be in this community of Detroit and be able to feel they could take such liberties with helpers.”last_img read more

Recordbreaking gene edit disables 13200 LINE1 Transposons in a single cell

first_img © 2019 Science X Network Explore further An international team of researchers has succeeded in making 13,200 edits to a single cell—and the cell survived. In their paper uploaded to the bioRxiv preprint server, the team describes the edits they made, how they did it and why. Credit: CC0 Public Domain Distorted, stretched DNA may increase risk of off-target changes with CRISPR-Cas9 Citation: Record-breaking gene edit disables 13,200 LINE-1 Transposons in a single cell (2019, March 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The CRISPR gene editing technique has made headlines around the world over the past several years as researchers have used it to edit genes in a variety of ways. More recently, researchers have attempted to make multiple edits to the same cell. Up until now, the record was 62 edits as part of an effort to remove remnants of retrovirus genes in a pig genome.The researchers explain that the reason they are working to perfect the multiple edit technique is to give them a way to remove LINE-1 transposons, also known as “jumping genes.” LINE-1 transposons are snippets of DNA that can move from one part of a genome to another, hence the nickname. Prior work has suggested that they are not necessary, and in fact, can lead to problems such as genetic diseases. Prior work has also shown that they make up approximately 17 percent of the human genome. That means that each cell has a lot of them, but getting rid of them one at a time would be a difficult challenge, to say the least. Because of that, the researchers with this new effort sought to get rid of them all in one fell swoop.The team notes that they first tried the regular CRISPR editing technique, but found that it resulted in a lot of collateral damage typically ending in cell death. The group then switched to using a version of CRISPR that has been modified into what has been described as a base editor—a gene editor that does not cut the DNA strand, but instead makes in-place letter swaps. Because it did not cut anything, the approach allowed the team to edit thousands of genes without killing the cell. The researchers note that the 13,200 edits they made represented just half of the LINE-1 transposons in the cell they were working on, but plan to continue working until they find a way to remove them all.

GitHubs new integration for Jira Software Cloud aims to provide teams a

first_imgLast week, GitHub announced that they have built a new integration to enable software teams to connect their code on to their projects on Jira Software Cloud. This integration updates Jira with data from GitHub, providing a better visibility into the current status of your project. What are the advantages of this new GitHub and Jira integration? No need to constantly switch between GitHub and Jira With your GitHub account linked to Jira, your team can see the branches, commit messages, and pull request in the context of the Jira tickets they’re working on. This integration provides a deeper connection by allowing you to view references to Jira in GitHub issues and pull requests. Source: GitHub Improved capabilities This new GitHub-managed app provides improved security, along with the following capabilities: Smart commits: You can use smart commits to update the status, leave a comment, or log time without having to leave your command line or GitHub View from within a Jira ticket: You can view associated pull requests, commits, and branches from within a Jira ticket Searching Jira issues: You can search for Jira issues based on related GitHub information, such as open pull requests. Check the status of development work: The status of development work can be seen from within Jira projects Keep Jira issues up to date: You can automatically keep your Jira issues up to date while working in GitHub Install the Jira Software and GitHub app to connect your GitHub repositories to your Jira instance. The previous version of the Jira integration will be deprecated in favor of this new GitHub-maintained integration. Once the migration is complete, the legacy integration (DVCS connector) is disabled automatically. Read the full announcement at the GitHub blog.
