Stephen Francis has stepped down as head coach of the very successful MVP Track and Field Club. In a release today, president Bruce James, said Stephen Francis, a co-founder of the club in 1999, will now focus on ‘providing private coaching services to select individual athletes.’ Francis has been replaced as head coach at MVP by his brother, Paul, who has attained Level IV IAAF coaching certification in sprints and hurdles. Both Stephen and Paul will continue as coaches at the University of Technology (UTech). The new structure has been in place since September 1, the release said. Under Stephen’s guidance the MVP Track Club which is based at UTech, earned 56 IAAF World Championships and 28 Olympic medals; 25 National records, three Olympic records and five world records. Stephen Francis recently received the Order Of Jamaica for his outstanding contribution to track and field.
Rooney then put his team’s chances in jeopardy by kicking out at Stewart Downing, but despite Diafra Sakho’s header making it awkward, Louis van Gaal’s side held on for a 2-1 win.Just like in last week’s shock defeat to Leicester, United looked very impressive at times going forward.The attacking trio of Rooney, Van Persie and Radamel Falcao combined well up front, until the United captain was sent off in the 59th minute for the foul, which occurred deep inside his own half.At the back, United looked vulnerable once again, although in fairness to Van Gaal, his injury troubles were so bad that he had to give 19-year-old centre-back Paddy McNair a debut.Of more concern to Van Gaal will be Rooney’s absence, which will last three matches if the dismissal is deemed to be violent conduct by the Football Association.That would rule the United skipper out of the forthcoming games against Everton, West Brom and Chelsea – three games United will want to win to put themselves firmly back in the hunt for the Champions League places.The desire to put last week’s capitulation to bed was clear from the first whistle.United hit West Ham with attack after attack, and it took less than five minutes for the hosts to break the deadlock.Rafael sprinted down the right flank after dinking the ball over Aaron Cresswell. The Brazilian paused and crossed for Rooney, who volleyed past Adrian after one bounce.The expert execution of the volley across the West Ham goalkeeper was befitting of a striker whose Premier League scoring record is only bettered by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.United’s creaky defence almost cost them the lead within one minute of Rooney’s goal.Daley Blind’s miscued clearance landed straight into the stride of Enner Valencia, but he blasted into the Stretford End.It was a let-off for the hosts, who quickly sought to settle the nervy home crowd with a second goal.Rooney found Van Persie at the back post with a delightful cross, but the Dutchman headed wide.Angel di Maria shot high and wide from inside the West Ham box and Rooney then fluffed a shot inside the area.Van Persie had no such trouble in the 23rd minute when he put United 2-0 up.Adrian put Alex Song under pressure with a poor clearance and United took full advantage. Ander Herrera nicked the ball off the Barcelona loanee and Van Persie angled his shot past the West Ham goalkeeper after a clever pass from Falcao.For all their attacking brilliance, at the back United still looked suspect.Song slipped Sakho in behind, but Marcos Rojo raced across to put in a vital tackle.Sakho found the net a few minutes later though, due to a rare error from David de Gea. Song hit the bar with a header after the Spaniard flapped at a corner and the ball fell to Sakho, who headed into an empty net.Sakho put McNair under pressure as United desperately tried to hold on to their lead before the break.After the break, West Ham continued to press. Aside from a shot by Falcao, United offered little on the attack.Slack marking from debutant Luke Shaw allowed Sakho to sting De Gea’s palms with a fierce volley.United looked shaky in the face of West Ham’s attacking play, and their task was made much harder when Rooney was sent off just before the hour.The United captain, unable to catch Downing, kicked the midfielder from behind while he was at full pace.Referee Lee Mason blew his whistle and then, to the shock of the home fans and players, showed Rooney his first red card for United in five-and-a-half years.Van Gaal looked to shore up his team by bringing Darren Fletcher on for Falcao.West Ham sent Carlton Cole on and looked to press home their numerical advantage.Sakho rippled the side-netting and Valencia’s deflected shot flew inches wide as West Ham piled on pressure.Herrera hobbled off with a back injury before McNair made a goal-saving header deep inside the home box.Kevin Nolan turned in Carl Jenkinson’s cross in the 89th minute, but linesman Andrew Garratt flagged for offside and United held on to record the second win of Van Gaal’s tenure.-ESPN FC0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, September 27- Wayne Rooney’s reckless dismissal did not stop Manchester United from returning to winning ways as they edged past West Ham 2-1 on a nervy afternoon at Old Trafford.Rooney became the third-highest scorer in Premier League history when he opened the scoring for United with a deft volley and Robin van Persie doubled the lead with his 50th goal for the club.
Having joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011, he never managed to win a regular starting spot and moved to Everton, initially on loan, in 2013.“I’m at a point where I have to make a good career choice,” Lukaku is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.“We have a new investor at Everton and out of courtesy I will listen to what he has to say. But I have my own ideas in mind. I want to win titles.”Lukaku scored 18 goals in the Premier League in 2015-16, his best return yet as he finished fourth in the scorers chart, despite Everton struggling to a disappointing 11th-placed finish.“I have had a very good season, but it is time for me to write myself a CV. That is why I play football,” added the 23-year-old.“I got that trophy-winning mindset from Chelsea.“People in Belgium don’t see me playing for Everton, but I am respected by fans, managers and experts like Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry.”Lukaku has been linked in British media with a return to Chelsea, who will be led by current Italy coach Antonio Conte next season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Everton striker Romelu Lukaku scored 18 goals in the Premier League in 2015-16 (AFP Photo/Ben Stansall)LONDON, United Kingdom, May 26 – Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku said he is looking for a move away from Everton to increase his chances of winning trophies.Speaking to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper, Lukaku did not rule out remaining with the Toffees but said “I want to win titles” in a hint that he sees his future away from Goodison Park.
“When I first got here, they kept moving me around and I felt like I wasn’t sure where I really needed to be, and neither were the coaches. I didn’t think they were confident enough in me, at whatever position, for me to play much. “Now, I feel I’ve proved myself in a couple games and (done) well, so it’s given me confidence because the coaches are confident in me.” Bosworth, who also excelled on special teams last week, had a career-high eight tackles against the Beavers. UCLA odds and ends Dorrell said tailback Chris Markey, who is second on the team with 404 rushing yards and splits time with Kahlil Bell, was “50-50” to play against Notre Dame on Saturday because of turf toe.Markey did not practice Tuesday, and was in a walking boot. … Bruins left guard Shannon Tevaga, a four-year starter, returned to practice after missing two weeks with a partially torn ligament in his right knee. Memphis inspired in win Memphis, playing just two days after the violent death of a teammate, converted that emotion into a 24-21 victory over visiting Marshall as Will Hudgens threw for a career-high 346 yards. Memphis defensive lineman Taylor Bradford was killed in an on-campus shooting Sunday night. Around the nation Michigan: Chad Henne is ready to resume his full-time quarterbacking duties. The senior quarterback sat out home wins against Notre Dame and Penn State while nursing a knee injury, but returned last weekend to lead Michigan past Northwestern. West Virginia: Quarterback Pat White is undergoing daily treatments for a thigh bruise and his status Saturday’s game against Syracuse remains uncertain. He might be a game-time decision. Clemson: The school has reported a secondary violation to the NCAA for the way the Tigers handled placekicker Mark Buchholz’s day off. Buchholz is playing soccer and football for the Tigers, and soccer coach Trevor Adair and football coach Tommy Bowden have been giving him different days off. But NCAA rules require an athlete to have one full day off from all sports. Florida: Safety Tony Joiner was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony burglary, police said. Joiner was arrested around 5 a.m. at the fenced impound lot of a local towing company, Gainesville police said. Joiner was accused of pushing a heavy electric gate open to enter the lot in an attempt to retrieve his girlfriend’s car.

You’re all set! “He’s always been a very good football player,” UCLA defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker said. “His thing has always been just the details of the defense. We knew he had the ability, and I think the light has finally come on for him.” Bosworth, a junior, said familiarity with a position, not to mention knowing the coaching staff now has confidence in him, is the reason for his improved play. When Walker came to UCLA after the 2005 season, Bosworth began playing strongside linebacker, but was switched to middle linebacker. The position didn’t mesh with his aggressive style, so he was moved back. Bosworth plays when UCLA is in its base 4-3 defense. Last week at Oregon State he gave way to Whittington when the Bruins employed a pass-defense package. “My confidence went up since I’ve been starting,” Bosworth said. By Brian Dohn STAFF WRITER Aaron Whittington’s concussion turned out to be Kyle Bosworth’s break. When Whittington was held out against Washington, Bosworth moved into the starting strongside linebacker slot. And it doesn’t appear like Bosworth will relinquish it.
Malaga goalkeeper Carlos Kameni made a horrific howler on Wednesday night to help Gary Neville claim another victory as Valencia boss.Coming up for half-time with his side leading 1-0, the Cameroonian came out for a cross and inexplicably punched the ball back into his net.It handed Valencia an unlikely route back into the game and Denis Cheryshev went on to grab a second-half winner – making it five wins in six games for Neville.
Chris Froome savoured his fourth Tour de France title as Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen won stage 21 of the race in Paris.Froome was able to enjoy the celebrations on the 103-kilometres stage from Montgeron to the Champs-Elysees before LottoNL-Jumbo’s Groenewegen won in a sprint from Lotto-Soudal’s Andre Greipel.Groenewegen had time to ease off as the hard-charging Greipel left it too late, while stage 19 winner Edvald Boasson Hagen finished third.Froome had effectively wrapped up his third straight Tour crown by extending his lead in Saturday’s time trial in Marseille. But while the first half of the final stage to the capital is a time for celebration, the sprint on the Champs-Elysees is arguably the most prestigious setting for any sprinter to win.No better place then for Groenewegen to record his first career Tour stage victory.For Greipel, second place spelled the end of a proud record – the 35-year-old had until now won at least one stage in every grand tour he took part in.Norwegian Boasson Hagen took the last spot on the podium for the third time in this Tour, with the Team Dimension Data rider also having two second places to add to Friday’s win. Froome’s final margin of victory over former team-mate Rigoberto Uran was 54 seconds, making this the seventh-closest finish in Tour history.Waiting for the Team Sky rider at the finish line were his wife Michelle and young son Kellan.
Monday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina in partnership with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) and the Cherokee Indian Police Department hosted a day long community awareness summit on the epidemic of heroin and prescription opioid abuse and the related overdose deaths in Indian Country and surrounding areas in western North Carolina.“Heroin addiction is not a public health concern. It is a public health crisis. The alarming rate of deaths attributed to heroin overdoses in the Western District of North Carolina and the increasing rate of addiction to opiates and prescription drugs demand our immediate attention,” said U.S. Attorney Jill Westmoreland Rose. “As law enforcement we cannot arrest our way out of this epidemic. The Justice Department’s three-pronged approach combines law enforcement action with prevention and treatment efforts. Stemming the flow of drugs, stopping more people from using opiates, and treating those who have become addicted requires coordination and collaboration with our state, local and tribal partners, community leaders, healthcare providers, service groups and community members. Working together we can succeed in implementing a comprehensive strategy that offers viable solutions, delivers sustainable results, and brings relief to afflicted communities,” U.S. Attorney Rose added.Approximately 110 professionals from the fields of law enforcement, medicine, substance abuse and treatment, and interested community members attended the summit, held at the Chief Joyce Dugan Cultural Arts Center in Cherokee, N.C. Speakers from federal and local law enforcement agencies, medical experts and representatives of community organizations presented on a broad range of topics including: the alarming rise in heroin and opioid addiction; prevention efforts and available treatment options; heroin trafficking trends within the boundaries of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and surrounding areas; and tribal, state, local and federal law enforcement efforts to stem the flow of opiates in the area.U.S. Attorney Rose thanked the DEA, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the Cherokee Indian Police Department for co-sponsoring the event and emphasized the importance of the conference stating that, “Today’s summit is part of our ongoing effort to bring attention to heroin addiction and opioid drug abuse and to continue to build upon our collaborative efforts with law enforcement, the healthcare field and our community partners to confront this epidemic and address the problem in real and meaningful ways.”
Tags:#web#Weekly Wrap-ups richard macmanus Here are the highlights from the week’s stories on ReadWriteWeb. On the product side, we analyzed the increasing mainstreaming of social news site digg; and we reviewed some awesome new web apps (Grooveshark, SixApart’s BlogIt, Twhirl, Alert Thingy, and others). On web trends, there was a meme this week that declared the Mobile Web dead – we begged to differ. We also looked into two ‘real world’ issues for Web tech this week – the impact of social media on “real people”; and real world data portability.Sponsor:Web AppsThe Decline and Fall of Tech on Digg If you’re a fan of digg, you’ve probably been noticing that tech stories are becoming less and less a feature of the social news site. The reason? Digg is attempting to attract a large mainstream user base. Just how low has tech sunk in digg? We have new data that shows that the number of frontpage tech stories is halving every year on digg.Is it time to accept that Digg is no longer an equivalent to Slashdot, and that it is as much a mainstream news site as say BusinessWeek or People magazine?SixApart’s BlogIt Could Be the Start of Something Big SixApart launched BlogIt by TypePad this week, a Facebook app that lets you post to SixApart blogs and other blogging software like WordPress, Blogger and Tumblr, to your Facebook Newsfeed and to Twitter all from one place. It’s the kind of app that makes Facebook all the closer to being a one stop social media experience.The service could be more fully developed but it’s certainly in the lead compared to other services aiming to do the same thing. A close look at the details leads us to believe that this could be a much bigger move than it might seem to be. This post lists a few reasons why we believe it’s so interesting.Grooveshark Launches Awesome Streaming Music Service Gainesville, Florida-based Grooveshark, a music sharing startup that we first profiled in August, this week launched their latest product: Grooveshark Lite. Lite is a slick, flash-based streaming music service that takes Grooveshark’s huge catalog of uploaded music and makes it available to stream, no registration required. Grooveshark Lite is fast, easy to use, and free.When we reviewed Grooveshark last August, we called it “one part Last.fm, one part Limewire, and one part iTunes store.” With the addition of Grooveshark Lite, the service is now also one part Pandora.Battle of the AIR Apps: Twhirl vs. Alert Thingy The battle between the two most popular AIR apps has begun. Earlier this week FriendFeed AIR app Alert Thingy, having only just launched on April 13th, was already getting an update – this one to include Twitter support via a built-in “Tweet” button. Not to be outdone, Twhirl wasted no time in providing an update of their own, seemingly crafting their updated version overnight. Now Twhirl includes FriendFeed support and Alert Thingy does Twitter, but are either of them really giving users what they want?SEE MORE WEB APPS COVERAGE IN OUR WEB APPS CATEGORYWeb TrendsIs the Mobile Web Dead? Some Mobile Entrepreneurs Say Yes Former Yahoo! Mobile evangelist turned startup entrepreneur Russell Beattie announced this week that he’s calling it quits for his company Mowser, because the market for mobile browsing is taking a fast turn for the worse. “The mobile traffic just isn’t there,” Beattie says, “It’s not there now, and it won’t be.”Beattie’s announcement comes just two months after mobile blogger and consultant Michael Mace wrote a much discussed post titled Mobile Applications, RIP. “The business of making native apps for mobile devices is dying, crushed by a fragmented market and restrictive business practices,” Mace wrote.Be sure to check the comments of this post, there were some excellent counterpoints made on both sides of the argument.Real People Don’t Have Time for Social Media Let’s be honest here: we’re all a bunch of social media addicts. We’re junkies. Whether it’s a new Twitter app, a new Facebook feature, or a new social anything service, we’re all over it. But we may not be the norm. The truth is, being involved in social media takes time, something that most people don’t have a lot of. So how can regular folk get involved with social media? And how much time does it really take? Where’s Our Real World Data Portability? In a recent Slashdot thread, someone sought advice on an electronic cash register set up that would output sales data in an open format. While the asker was looking for information from the point of view of a shop owner, it got us thinking about data portability. There’s been a lot of clamor over the past few months about who owns attention data and a major online movement has started with the aim of pushing companies into granting access to that data to the users who create it. But what about offline attention data? Should we demand access to that as well?13 Seed Funding Options For Entrepreneurs One of the most difficult parts of starting a startup for any entrepreneur is finding that small bit of seed capital to get things going. As evidenced by small seed funds like Y Combinator, a little can go a long way for startup entrepreneurs, but raising that chunk of change to get started can be tricky. Luckily, there are a number of different roads you can take to get from concept to Series A. This post lists 13 seed funding options for startup entrepreneurs.SEE MORE WEB TRENDS COVERAGE IN OUR TRENDS CATEGORYThat’s a wrap for another week! Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Today’s Web—characterized by social media and user-generated content—is a powerful, open medium that gives everyone a voice. Unfortunately, some use their voices to bully or harass other users. Social media platforms, online bulletin boards, blog sites, media companies, and anyone else who opens up posts to comments, struggle to identify and deter online harassment. So Intel has joined with a number of other organizations to create Hack HarassmentOpens in a new window—a collaborative effort to reduce the prevalence and severity of online harassment through increasing awareness and accountability, advancing anti-harassment technology solutions, and effecting change for individuals and communities. And we’re tackling a portion of this goal with artificial intelligence (AI).Online harassment is a large and growing problem. Forty percent of online users say they have personally experienced harassment: trolling, flaming, stalking, even threats of physical or mental harm. Young Internet users are even more likely to have been harassed (70% of those 18-24 according to Pew Research)1. Women, people of color and LGBTQ are more likely to experience harassment online. While this is alarming, there’s evidence that online harassment is actually under-reported.It’s not just a problem for users, but for companies and organizations who are trying to make their site or service safe and welcoming. Appearing on one of the morning news shows recently, Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger recounted the days when he and co-founder Kevin Systrom personally spent hours of their time scanning posts for harassment. Now, many sites have a mechanism for users to report abuse, but site operators are overwhelmed by the volume of reports to be investigated and dealt with, and actions are often taken too late to help the victim.With a human moderator, it may be easy to recognize harassment. But using simple filters to spot abuse is unreliable. When a teen responds to her friend, “You got tickets to that concert??? I hate you!!!” she probably means no harm; whereas, much subtler statements lacking inflammatory words can be menacing in tone and intent.Hack Harassment is working the problem on many fronts. We’re increasing awareness and fostering collaboration among organizations and users who are committed to fighting online harassment. But we’re also applying technology to create and implement tools to help fight the problem.That’s why we’re tackling the problem with AI. The nuances of human language make it an ideal opportunity for machine learning. There are huge volumes of data available to train a model to spot abuse, so we’re tapping into that to compile a dataset for training of machine learning algorithms. We’ve created a machine learning classifier application to detect harassment in digital media like online posts, email, chat, and texts—and to do it at scale. These are open source efforts, so the results of our work will be available to Internet sites who want to apply it to reduce harassment, to businesses who want to stop workplace harassment in email or chat, and to those who might offer services others can link to in real time.Want to learn more and be part of the solution? Take the Hack Harassment pledgeOpens in a new window. It’s not only a good thing to do, but you can provide your email address so you receive updates on our efforts to make the Internet safer and more inclusive. You’ll also be among the first to have a chance to try out the classifier when it’s ready for beta testing in the coming months. 1: http://www.pewinternet.org/2014/10/22/online-harassment/
By Ann GibbonsOct. 5, 2017 , 2:00 PM A key question has been: What does this archaic DNA do in living humans? Drawing largely on the Altai genome, researchers have published on about two dozen Neandertal gene variants that influence living humans’ risk of allergies, depression, blood clots, skin lesions, immunological disorders, and other diseases.In a separate study published in the American Journal of Human Genetics today, Janet Kelso of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and her team scanned more detail genetic and physical trait data from more than 112,000 participants in the UK Biobank pilot study to find out what Neandertal DNA they had inherited. They report that the Neandertal genes (drawn from the Altai Neandertal) influence how people respond to sunlight exposure, such as how easily they tan, their hair color, sleep patterns, and mood. But the Vindija Neandertal lived closer than the Altai one to the time and place where Eurasians’ ancestors mated with Neandertals—likely 50,000 to 60,000 years ago, perhaps in the Middle East. So its DNA promised better insight, especially with recently improved methods to extract and sequence ancient DNA. Evolutionary geneticist Kay Prüfer of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and colleagues sequenced each base of the female’s genome about 30 times on average. The team also used radiocarbon and genetic methods to date the bone.As expected, this Neandertal’s genome is more closely related to today’s Europeans and Asians than that of the Altai Neandertal. And Prüfer and his colleagues already have discovered 16 new Neandertal gene variants passed on to living humans. These include changes in genes already known to govern levels of cholesterol and vitamin D, and to influence the risk—for better or worse—of developing eating disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, and schizophrenia, as well as the response to antipsychotic drugs. Researchers will now more closely study how each Neandertal version tips the balance in living people.The new Vindija genome also allowed the researchers to better calculate how much Neandertal DNA different groups of humans outside of Africa have inherited. East Asians, with 2.3%–2.6% of Neandertal DNA, topped people from western Asia and Europe, who had 1.8%–2.4%. Prüfer and his colleagues confirmed that the ancestors of the 122,000-year-old Altai Neandertal had also interbred with H. sapiens in a much earlier encounter that took place more than 130,000 years ago.The Altai and Vindija genomes are remarkably similar and that limited genetic diversity suggests that Neandertals lived in small, isolated populations of about 3000 individuals of reproductive age, Prüfer says. “This speaks to debates about why they went extinct,” Capra says. “They probably were less robust in their response to disease, starvation, and changes in climate.” The insult “You’re a Neandertal!” has taken on dramatic new meaning in the past few years, as researchers have begun to identify the genes many of us inherited from our long-extinct relatives. By sequencing a remarkably complete genome from a 50,000-year-old bone fragment of a female Neandertal found in Vindija Cave in Croatia, researchers report online today in Science a new trove of gene variants that living people outside of Africa obtained from Neandertals. Some of this DNA could influence cholesterol levels, the accumulation of belly fat, and the risk of schizophrenia and other diseases.The genome is only the second from a Neandertal sequenced to such high quality that it can reliably reveal when, where, and what DNA was passed from Neandertals to modern humans—and which diseases it may be causing or preventing today. “It’s really exciting because it’s more than two times better to have two Neandertal genomes,” says evolutionary genomicist Tony Capra of Vanderbilt University in Nashville.The first Neandertal genome was a composite drawn from three individuals from Vindija Cave. Then, over the past few years, ancient DNA researchers sequenced two more Neandertal genomes, including another high-quality sequence from an individual that lived 122,000 years ago in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. Together, the genomes showed that living Europeans and Asians carry traces of DNA from Neandertals who mated with members of Homo sapiens soon after our species left Africa. (Most Africans lack Neandertal DNA as a result.)Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) TOMISLAV KRANJCIC/WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Is your Neandertal DNA making your belly fat?
