Trump administration promises 100 million coronavirus testing swabs by the end of 2020

The Trump administration sent Congress a national coronavirus testing strategy in time to meet a Sunday deadline, The Washington Post reports, citing a copy of the 80-page "COVID-19 Strategic Testing Plan" it obtained. The report delivered to Congress promises that the federal government will buy 100 million swabs by the end of 2020 and distribute them to states to help them expand testing. The document did not outline federal testing goals for each state; instead it listed testing targets states reported to federal officials for May. Public health officials say broader testing to determine who has been infected with the novel coronavirus and who might have immunity are key to curbing the spread of the outbreak and allowing the economy to fully reopen. The administration plan calls for every state to try to test at least 2 percent of its population in May and June. Read more at The Washington Post. Harold Maass

Efficient generation of relativistic near-single-cycle mid-infrared pulses in plasmas

Intense few-cycle optical pulses in the mid-infrared region are of great importance yet difficult to obtain with normal optical materials and techniques. To deal with this challenge, scientists in China and the UK proposed a scheme by use of plasma as a nonlinear optical medium, which can efficiently generate relativistic multi-millijoule near-single-cycle mid-infrared pulses at ~5 microns. This technique can be realized with available terawatt-class kHz lasers, bringing new opportunities in high-field and ultrafast science.

A natural amino acid could be a novel treatment for polyglutamine diseases

Researchers from Osaka University, National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, and Niigata University identified the amino acid arginine as a potential disease-modifying drug for polyglutamine diseases, including familial spinocerebellar ataxia and Huntington disease. Using various mice models of polyglutamine diseases, they showed that arginine prevents polyglutamine protein aggregation, improves motor function and suppresses neurodegeneration of mice. The results of this study could facilitate the clinical use of arginine for polyglutamine diseases that are, to date, incurable.

Do We Even Need a Shot Now? COVID Is Vanishing So Quickly in the UK that Their Vaccine Test Might Be Useless

Well, North Carolina’s COVID death toll has been slashed big league. Florida was supposed to be awash with new bodies. That prediction, which was infused with a ghoulish sense of glee from liberal media folks, was made eight weeks ago. It has not happened. The curve has been flattened, deaths are dropping, and the hospitalizations have stabilized. The health care system has pressure on it, but that’s no longer the case. It’s time to re-open. The initial intent of the lockdowns was to flatten the curve. It’s been flattened. Now, to no one’s surprise, the Democrats in charge of states and localities hard hit by the initial wave of the coronavirus want people to stay inside. As this is happening, scores of businesses have suffered or closed. Millions are out of work.

Standing Rock Reservation, North Dakota - More than four years ago, the roads and rolling plains north of the Cannon Ball settlement on Standing Rock Reservation were strewn with tear gas, private security squadrons and thousands of environmentalists protesting a new oil pipeline.

Chirality-assisted lateral momentum transfer for bidirectional enantioselective separation

Chiral nanoparticles which twist the light were theoretically predicted to experience lateral forces perpendicular to light vector but lacks experimental verification. Now, scientists from Singapore, Italy, Spain and China demonstrate the first experimental sorting of chiral microparticles using optical lateral force induced by linearly polarized light. The force direction intriguingly depends on the polarization and incident angle of light, handedness of particles, etc. The technique will open new avenues for the detection and sorting of microparticles with imperceptible chemical differences

What information is coded in bird alarm calls -- a new study from Korea

Recordings of the Oriental tit's alarm responses showed that alarm calls to snakes have special acoustic properties different from calls to chipmunks, even though both predators can enter bird's nests and destroy broods. Nestlings escaped from nests (and from the snake) when they heard a recording of the ''snake call'' but not ''chipmunk call'' by parents. This suggests that the calls do not carry information about predator's ability to enter the nest cavity, and that snakes are ''special'' predators.

While national and international efforts to reverse the trend of deforestation have multiplied in recent years, there is still no clear evidence to suggest that these initiatives are actually working. A new paper published in One Earth, calls for a radically different approach that focuses on our understanding of how individuals make their choices about forests and livelihoods.
