The Israeli Defence Forces have carried out 5 to 8 air strikes targeting the office of the Palestinian interior ministry’s headquarters occupied by the governing party Hamas in Gaza and an office of President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party in Gaza, Palestinian and Israeli sources say.

Israel claims its ongoing Operation Summer Rains, which began early on June 28, is in response to the capture of Israeli soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit by Palestinian militants.

There were mixed reports of casualties from the air strike, although one source said a member of Islamic Jihad had been killed in the air strikes. Television images showed emergency crews responded to the attacks.

The Israeli military said the ministry office, controlled by Hamas, was “a meeting place to plan and direct terror activity.” In addition, an Israeli official stated to the Associated Press that the attacks will only end when the captured Israeli soldier is unconditionally freed.

Days after the initial raid reports from Israeli officials stated that they had found the body of 18-year-old Eliyahu Yitzhak Asheri who was kidnapped by the Palestinian ruling party, Hamas, and shot in the back of the head on Sunday.

In his first appearance since the raid began, Palestinian PM and leader of the Hamas organization, Ismail Haniya denounced the raid saying it was a “premeditated plan” to bring down the new Hamas government. He accused Israel of hiding behind Cpl. Shalit to carry a “systemic campaign” against Hamas.


State of emergency declared in New York over H1N1 swine flu virus

According to US health officials, New York state governor David Paterson has declared a state of emergency in the state as a result of the H1N1 swine flu outbreak.

The Associated Press news agency reports that the six-page declaration was issued because at least 75 people have died of H1N1 related illnesses in New York since April. Three have died from H1N1 related illnesses just this past week. The declaration also says that human cases of the virus are on the rise.

Paterson says he issued the declaration because “a disaster has occurred throughout New York State, for which the affected local governments are unable to respond adequately.”

The declaration will allow health officials more access to the H1N1 vaccine and the seasonal flu shot. It will also allow for an increase in the number of vaccine doses available in the state and will allow more health care facilities to administer the vaccine, including dentists and pharmacists. Schools with health centers will also be allowed to administer both vaccines.

Despite the declaration, officials stressed that there is no reason to worry. A spokeswoman for the New York State Department of Health, Claire Pospisil, said that “it [the declaration] helps us to be more prepared.”

The order came shortly after US president Barack Obama declared a national emergency last Saturday, a response to the spreading of the virus, which has now been circulated in 46 states.


Pennsylvania state trooper found guilty of first-degree murder

In the United States, a suspended Pennsylvania state trooper has been convicted of first-degree murder for killing his girlfriend’s estranged husband.

Kevin Foley, 43, faces a mandatory life sentence without parole for slashing to death John Yelenic, a Blairsville dentist who was in the final stages of divorcing his wife, Michele. Foley’s attorney said he plans to appeal the decision. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.

Foley previously said he “loathed Dr. Yelenic” and asked another fellow trooper to help kill him. During his testimony, which lasted several hours, Foley claimed he was joking and had no true intention of carrying out the threat, but the Indiana County jury rejected that defense after about six hours of deliberations.

John Yelenic was found dead in his home on April 13, 2006, one day before he was planning on signing his divorce papers. Charges were brought against Foley in September 2007, more than 17 months after the murder.

Foley, who had been on suspension from the Pennsylvania State Police, was himself the final witness to take the stand Wednesday in the trial. Foley insisted he was innocent during his testimony, and even made jokes that the jury laughed at on a few occasions.

“I never made a threat with the intention of carrying it out,” Foley said under cross-examination by the prosecution.

When Senior Deputy Attorney General Anthony Krastek pressed Foley for what was funny about asking another state trooper to help him kill Yelenic, Foley answered, “There isn’t any joke. It’s just my personality, my behavior (with co-workers).”

Prosecutors said Foley killed Yelenic after going to the dentist’s house to confront him over the terms of the divorce. Prosecutors claim Foley slashed Yelenic several times with a knife and pushed his head through a small window. Yelenic bled to death.

“John has his justice tonight,” Mary Ann Clark, a cousin of Yelenic, told MSNBC. “John deserved this; he was the most wonderful person in the world. He died the most horrible death and tonight, this is his night. The system worked.”

Foley had been living with Michele Yelenic for two years at the time of the homicide. Prosecutors previously said Foley and Michele helped perpetuate rumors that Dr. Yelenic molested their son. John and Michele Yelenic had been separated in 2002. Michele Yelenic stood to collect Dr. Yelenic’s estate and a US$1 million life insurance policy, and could lose about $2,500 a month in support if the divorce was finalized, a Pennsylvania grand jury previously determined.

Michele Yelenic, who has not appeared at the trial, may face legal action herself, media reports indicated. A sentencing hearing for Foley is scheduled for June 1.


The Medusa Immortal}

Yes, as you read. There is an animal on Earth that has the answer to one of the secrets more wanted by the science for many years: how to remain young forever and even How to be immortal. She is the Turritopsis nutricola, a kind of medusa originated in the Caribbean.

Although it is sufficiently demonstrated the importance of the death for the continuity of the life and the evolution of the agencies on the planet, this animal has found a way to circumvent your natural death through a physiological process of you discuss below.

The Medusa immortal

The Turritopsis nutricola is a tiny medusa Oceanidae family that is barely half a centimeter in length. Although it is a species originally Caribbean, today you can find in all the oceans of the world, both in tropical waters as temperate, due to a slow but progressive and irreversible colonization provided by the marine traffic of the large vessels, that downloaded the ballast water in their tanks by all seas, thus moving it and a multitude of other potentially invasive species, such as Lion Fish.

What makes immortal this jellyfish?

This small Medusa is able to maintain its eternal youth thanks to a mechanism with which is able to modify its cells once that have already been differentiated, making them return to their initial state, which had before their specialization. This phenomenon is known as transdifferentiation, that is the same that occurs when a body concerned regenerates their tissues, but that in this medusa goes to extreme unique, because it can regenerate completely again and again, apparently so infinite.

Thus, when certain adverse conditions or the own senescence or aging indicate, there is a scheduled deterioration of the adult structures of the Medusa in such a way that the lead to again be a polyp, its initial juvenile stage that, after a metamorphosis, makes to elicit new and young jellyfish free life. It would be the equivalent of a butterfly back to the phase of track again and resume to transform itself into a butterfly in an endless cycle.

Scientists have carried out numerous tests in the laboratory and have checked that the “new individuals” adults that have matured, returned to the youth and matured again in several occasions, not lost even the slightest of their physiological and adaptive capabilities, so that concluded that the death of organic Turritopsis nutricola does not occur ever, and only would cease to exist an individual victim of a fatal disease or some predator.

This mechanism is still seriously investigated in the present with the aim to decrypt its molecular bases, which would have a great potential in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and regenerative creams much more efficient, not only with an aesthetic sense, but also to fight diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s, among many others.

Curious strategy of rejuvenation of this small jellyfish right? If you would like to know other curious things about jellyfish?
