PENCEMARAN AIR :
SUMBER, DAMPAK DAN PENANGGULANGANNYA


PENGERTIAN PENCEMARAN AIR

1. Apa yang disebut Pencemaran Air ?
Istilah pencemaran air atau polusi air dapat dipersepsikan berbeda oleh satu orang dengan orang lainnya mengingat banyak pustaka acuan yang merumuskan definisi istilah tersebut, baik dalam kamus atau buku teks ilmiah. Pengertian pencemaran air juga didefinisikan dalam Peraturan Pemerintah, sebagai turunan dari pengertian pencemaran lingkungan hidup yang didefinisikan dalam undang-undang. Dalam praktek operasionalnya, pencemaran lingkungan hidup tidak pernah ditunjukkan secara utuh, melainkan sebagai pencemaraan dari komponen-komponen lingkungan hidup, seperti pencemaran air, pencemaran air laut, pencemaran air tanah dan pencemaran udara. Dengan demikian, definisi pencemaran air mengacu pada definisi lingkungan hidup yang ditetapkan dalam UU tentang lingkungan hidup yaitu UU No. 23/1997.
Dalam PP No. 20/1990 tentang Pengendalian Pencemaran Air, pencemaran air didefinisikan sebagai : “pencemaran air adalah masuknya atau dimasukkannya mahluk hidup, zat, energi dan atau komponen lain ke dalam air oleh kegiaan manusia sehingga kualitas air turun sampai ke tingkat tertentu yang menyebabkan air tidak berfungsi lagi sesuai dengan peruntukannya” (Pasal 1, angka 2). Definisi pencemaran air tersebut dapat diuraikan sesuai makna pokoknya menjadi 3 (tga) aspek, yaitu aspek kejadian, aspek penyebab atau pelaku dan aspek akibat (Setiawan, 2001).
Berdasarkan definisi pencemaran air, penyebab terjadinya pencemaran dapat berupa masuknya mahluk hidup, zat, energi atau komponen lain ke dalam air sehingga menyebabkan kualitas air tercemar. Masukan tersebut sering disebut dengan istilah unsur pencemar, yang pada prakteknya masukan tersebut berupa buangan yang bersifat rutin, misalnya buangan limbah cair. Aspek pelaku/penyebab dapat yang disebabkan oleh alam, atau oleh manusia. Pencemaran yang disebabkan oleh alam tidak dapat berimplikasi hukum, tetapi Pemerintah tetap harus menanggulangi pencemaran tersebut. Sedangkan aspek akibat dapat dilihat berdasarkan penurunan kualitas air sampai ke tingkat tertentu. Pengertian tingkat tertentu dalam definisi tersebut adalah tingkat kualitas air yang menjadi batas antara tingkat tak-cemar (tingkat kualitas air belum sampai batas) dan tingkat cemar (kualitas air yang telah sampai ke batas atau melewati batas). Ada standar baku mutu tertentu untuk peruntukan air. Sebagai contoh adalah pada UU Kesehatan No. 23 tahun 1992 ayat 3 terkandung makna bahwa air minum yang dikonsumsi masyarakat, harus memenuhi persyaratan kualitas maupun kuantitas, yang persyaratan kualitas tettuang dalam Peraturan Mentri Kesehatan No. 146 tahun 1990 tentang syarat-syarat dan pengawasan kualitas air. Sedangkan parameter kualitas air minum/air bersih yang terdiri dari parameter kimiawi, fisik, radioaktif dan mikrobiologi, ditetapkan dalam PERMENKES 416/1990 (Achmadi, 2001).

2.2. Indikator Pencemaran Air
Indikator atau tanda bahwa air lingkungan telah tercemar adalah adanya perubahan atau tanda yang dapat diamati yang dapat digolongkan menjadi :
- Pengamatan secara fisis, yaitu pengamatan pencemaran air berdasarkan tingkat kejernihan air (kekeruhan), perubahan suhu, warna dan adanya perubahan warna, bau dan rasa
- Pengamatan secara kimiawi, yaitu pengamatan pencemaran air berdasarkan zat kimia yang terlarut, perubahan pH
- Pengamatan secara biologis, yaitu pengamatan pencemaran air berdasarkan mikroorganisme yang ada dalam air, terutama ada tidaknya bakteri pathogen.
Indikator yang umum diketahui pada pemeriksaan pencemaran air adalah pH atau konsentrasi ion hydrogen, oksigen terlarut (Dissolved Oxygen, DO), kebutuhan oksigen biokimia (Biochemiycal Oxygen Demand, BOD) serta kebutuhan oksigen kimiawi (Chemical Oxygen Demand, COD).
Oksigen terlarut (DO)
Tanpa adanya oksegen terlarut, banyak mikroorganisme dalam air tidak dapat hidup karena oksigen terlarut digunakan untuk proses degradasi senyawa organic dalam air. Oksigen dapat dihasilkan dari atmosfir atau dari reaksi fotosintesa algae. Oksigen yang dihasilkan dari reaksi fotosintesa algae tidak efisien, karena oksigen yang terbentuk akan digunakan kembali oleh algae untuk proses metabolisme pada saat tidak ada cahaya. Kelarutan oksigen dalam air tergantung pada temperature dan tekanan atmosfir. Berdasarkan data-data temperature dan tekanan, maka kalarutan oksigen jenuh dalam air pada 25o C dan tekanan 1 atmosfir adalah 8,32 mg/L (Warlina, 1985).
Kadar oksigen terlarut yang tinggi tidak menimbulkan pengaruh fisiologis bagi manusia. Ikan dan organisme akuatik lain membutuhkan oksigen terlarut dengan jumlah cukup banyak. Kebutuhan oksigen ini bervariasi antar organisme. Keberadaan logam berta yang berlebihan di perairan akan mempengaruhi system respirasi organisme akuatik, sehingga pada saat kadar oksigen terlarut rendah dan terdapat logam berat dengan konsentrasi tinggi, organisme akuatik menjadi lebih menderita (Tebbut, 1992 dalam Effendi, 2003).
Pada siang hari, ketika matahari bersinar terang, pelepasan oksigen oleh proses fotosintesa yang berlangsung intensif pada lapisan eufotik lebih besar daripada oksigen yang dikonsumsi oleh proses respirasi. Kadar oksigen terlarut dapat melebihi kadar oksigen jenuh, sehingga perairan mengalami supersaturasi. Sedangkan pada malam hari, tidak ada fotosintesa, tetapi respirasi terus berlangsung. Pola perubahan kadar oksigen ini mengakibatkan terjadinya fluktuasi harian oksigen pada lapisan eufotik perairan. Kadar oksigen maksimum terjadi pada sore hari dan minimum pada pagi hari.
Kebutuhan Oksigen Biokimia (BOD)
Dekomposisi bahan organic terdiri atas 2 tahap, yaitu terurainya bahan organic menjadi anorganik dan bahan anorganik yang tidak stabil berubah menjadi bahan anorganik yang stabil, misalnya ammonia mengalami oksidasi menjadi nitrit atau nitrat (nitrifikasi). Pada penentuan nilai BOD, hanya dekomposisi tahap pertama ynag berperan, sedangkan oksidasi bahan anorganik (nitrifikasi) dianggap sebagai zat pengganggu.
Dengan demikian, BOD adalah banyaknya oksigen yang dibutuhkan oleh mikroorganisme dalam lingkungan air untuk memecah (mendegradasi) bahan buangan organic yang ada dalam air menjadi karbondioksida dan air. Pada dasarnya, proses oksidasi bahan organic berlangsung cukup lama. Menurut Sawyer dan McCarty, 1978 (Effendi, 2003) proses penguraian bahan buangan organic melalui proses oksidasi oleh mikroorganisme atau oleh bakteri aerobic adalah :
CnHaObNc + (n + a/4 – b/2 – 3c/4) O2 → n CO2 + (a/2 – 3c/2) H2O + c NH3
Bahan organic oksigen bakteri aerob

Untuk kepentingan praktis, proses oksidasi dianggap lengkap selama 20 hari, tetapi penentuan BOD selama 20 hari dianggap masih cukup lama. Penentuan BOD ditetapkan selam 5 hari inkubasi, maka biasa disebut BOD5. Selain memperpendek waktu yang diperlukan, hal ini juga dimaksudkan untuk meminimumkan pengaruh oksidasi ammonia yang menggunakan oksigen juga. Selama 5 hari masa inkubasi, diperkirakan 70% - 80% bahan organic telah mengalami oksidasi. (Effendi, 2003).
Jumlah mikroorganisme dalam air lingkungan tergantung pada tingkat kebersihan air. Air yang bersih relative mengandung mikroorganisme lebih sedikit dibandingkan yang tercemar. Air yang telah tercemar oleh bahan buangan yang bersifat antiseptic atau bersifat racun, seperti fenol, kreolin, detergen, asam cianida, insektisida dan sebagainya, jumlah mikroorganismenya juga relative sedikit. Sehingga makin besar kadar BOD nya, maka merupakan indikasi bahwa perairan tersebut telah tercemar, sebagai contoh adalah kadar maksimum BOD5 yang diperkenankan untuk kepentingan air minum dan menopang kehidupan organisme akuatik adalah 3,0 – 6,0 mg/L berdasarkan UNESCO/WHO/UNEP, 1992. Sedangkan berdasarkan Kep.51/MENKLH/10/1995 nilai BOD5 untuk baku mutu limbah cair bagi kegiatan industri golongan I adalah 50 mg/L dan golongan II adalah 150 mg/L.

Kebutuhan Oksigen Kimiawi (COD)
COD adalah jumlah oksigen yang diperlukan agar bahan buangan yang ada dalam air dapat teroksidasi melalui reaksi kimia baik yang dapat didegradasi secara biologis maupun yang sukar didegradasi. Bahan buangan organic tersebut akan dioksidasi oleh kalium bichromat yang digunakan sebagai sumber oksigen (oxidizing agent) menjadi gas CO2 dan gas H2O serta sejumlah ion chrom. Reaksinya sebagai berikut :
HaHbOc + Cr2O7 2- + H + → CO2 + H2O + Cr 3+
Jika pada perairan terdapat bahan organic yang resisten terhadap degradasi biologis, misalnya tannin, fenol, polisacharida dansebagainya, maka lebih cocok dilakukan pengukuran COD daripada BOD. Kenyataannya hampir semua zat organic dapat dioksidasi oleh oksidator kuat seperti kalium permanganat dalam suasana asam, diperkirakan 95% - 100% bahan organic dapat dioksidasi.
Seperti pada BOD, perairan dengan nilai COD tinggi tidak diinginkan bagi kepentingan perikanan dan pertanian. Nilai COD pada perairan yang tidak tercemar biasanya kurang dari 20 mg/L, sedangkan pada perairan tercemar dapat lebih dari 200 mg/L dan pada limbah industri dapat mencapai 60.000 mg/L (UNESCO,WHO/UNEP, 1992).

III. SUMBER PENCEMARAN AIR

Banyak penyebab sumber pencemaran air, tetapi secara umum dapat dikategorikan menjadi 2 (dua) yaitu sumber kontaminan langsung dan tidak langsung. Sumber langsung meliputi efluen yang keluar dari industri, TPA sampah, rumah tangga dan sebagainya. Sumber tak langsung adalah kontaminan yang memasuki badan air dari tanah, air tanah atau atmosfir berupa hujan (Pencemaran Ling. Online, 2003). Pada dasarnya sumber pencemaran air berasal dari industri, rumah tangga dan pertanian. Tanah dan air tanah mengandung sisa dari aktivitas pertanian misalnya pupuk dan pestisida. Kontaminan dari atmosfir juga berasal dari aktifitas manusia yaitu pencemaran udara yang menghasilkan hujan asam.
Pengaruh bahan pencemar yang berupa gas, bahan terlarut, dan partikulat terhadap lingkungan perairan dan kesehatan manusia dapat ditunjukkan secara skematik sebagai berikut :

Gambar : Bagan Pengaruh Beberapa Jenis Bahan Pencemar terhadap
Lingkungan Perairan


3.1. Komponen Pencemaran Air
Saat ini hampir 10 juta zat kimia telah dikenal manusia, dan hampir 100.000 zat kimia telah digunakan secara komersial. Kebanyakan sisa zat kimia tersebut dibuang ke badan air atau air tanah. Sebagai contoh adalah pestisida yang biasa digunakan di pertanian, industri atau rumah tangga, detergen yang biasa digunakan di rumah tangga atau PCBs yang biasa digunakan pada alat-alat elektronik.
Erat kaitannya dengan masalah indikator pencemaran air, ternyata komponen pencemaran air turut menentukan bagaimana indikator tersebut terjadi. Menurut Wardhana (1995), komponen pencemaran air dapat dikelompokkan sebagai bahan buangan:
1. padat
2. organic dan olahan bahan makanan
3. anorganik
4. cairan berminyak
5. berupa panas
6. zat kimia.

3.1.1. Bahan buangan padat
Yang dimaksud bahan buangan padat adalah adalah bahan buangan yang berbentuk padat, baik yang kasar atau yang halus, misalnya sampah. Buangan tersebut bila dibuang ke air menjadi pencemaran dan akan menimbulkan pelarutan, pengendapan ataupun pembentukan koloidal.
Apabila bahan buangan padat tersebut menimbulkan pelarutan, maka kepekatan atau berat jenis air akan naik. Kadang-kadang pelarutan ini disertai pula dengan perubahan warna air. Air yang mengandung larutan pekat dan berwarna gelap akan mengurangi penetrasi sinar matahari ke dalam air. Sehingga proses fotosintesa tanaman dalam air akan terganggu. Jumlah oksigen terlarut dalam air menjadi berkurang, kehidupan organisme dalam air juga terganggu.
Terjadinya endapan di dasar perairan akan sangat mengganggu kehidupan organisme dalam air, karena endapan akan menutup permukaan dasar air yang mungkin mengandung telur ikan sehingga tidak dapat menetas. Selain itu, endapan juga dapat menghalangi sumber makanan ikan dalam air serta menghalangi datangnya sinar matahari.
Pembentukan koloidal terjadi bila buangan tersebut berbentuk halus, sehingga sebagian ada yang larut dan sebagian lagi ada yang melayang-layang sehingga air menjadi keruh. Kekeruhan ini juga menghalangi penetrasi sinar matahari, sehingga menghambat fotosintesa dan berkurangnya kadar oksigen dalam air.

3.1.2. Bahan buangan organic dan olahan bahan makanan
Bahan buangan organic umumnya berupa limbah yang dapat membusuk atau terdegradasi oleh mikroorganisme, sehingga bila dibuang ke perairan akan menaikkan populasi mikroorganisme. Kadar BOD dalam hal ini akan naik. Tidak tertutup kemungkinan dengan berambahnya mikroorganisme dapat berkembang pula bakteri pathogen yang berbahaya bagi manusia. Demikian pula untuk buangan olahan bahan makanan yang sebenarnya adalah juga bahan buangan organic yang baunya lebih menyengat. Umumnya buangan olahan makanan mengandung protein dan gugus amin, maka bila didegradasi akan terurai menjadi senyawa yang mudah menguap dan berbau busuk (misal. NH3).

3.1.3. Bahan buangan anorganik
Bahan buangan anorganik sukar didegradasi oleh mikroorganisme, umumnya adalah logam. Apabila masuk ke perairan, maka akan terjadi peningkatan jumlah ion logam dalam air. Bahan buangan anorganik ini biasanya berasal dari limbah industri yag melibatkan penggunaan unsure-unsur logam seperti timbal (Pb), Arsen (As), Cadmium (Cd), air raksa atau merkuri (Hg), Nikel (Ni), Calsium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) dll.
Kandungan ion Mg dan Ca dalam air akan menyebabkan air bersifat sadah. Kesadahan air yang tinggi dapat merugikan karena dapat merusak peralatan yang terbuat dari besi melalui proses pengkaratan (korosi). Juga dapat menimbulkan endapan atau kerak pada peralatan.
Apabila ion-ion logam berasal dari logam berat maupun yang bersifat racun seperti Pb, Cd ataupun Hg, maka air yang mengandung ion-ion logam tersebut sangat berbahaya bagi tubuh manusia, air tersebut tidak layak minum.

3.1.4. Bahan buangan cairan berminyak
Bahan buangan berminyak yang dibuang ke air lingkungan akan mengapung menutupi permukaan air. Jika bahan buangan minyak mengandung senyawa yang volatile, maka akan terjadi penguapan dan luas permukaan minyak yang menutupi permukaan air akan menyusut. Penyusutan minyak ini tergantung pada jenis minyak dan waktu. Lapisan minyak pada permukaan air dapat terdegradasi oleh mikroorganisme tertentu, tetapi membutuhkan waktu yang lama.
Lapisan minyak di permukaan akan mengganggu mikroorganisme dalam air. Ini disebabkan lapisan tersebut akan menghalangi diffusi oksigen dari udara ke dalam air, sehingga oksigen terlarut akan berkurang. Juga lapisan tersebut akan menghalangi masuknya sinar matahari ke dalam air, sehingga fotosintesapun terganggu. Selain itu, burungpun ikut terganggu, karena bulunya jadi lengket, tidak dapat mengembang lagi akibat kena minyak.

3.1.5. Bahan buangan berupa panas (polusi thermal)
Perubahan kecil pada temperatur air lingkungan bukan saja dapat menghalau ikan atau spesies lainnya, namun juga akan mempercepat proses biologis pada tumbuhan dan hewan bahkan akan menurunkan tingkat oksigen dalam air. Akibatnya akan terjadi kematian pada ikan atau akan terjadi kerusakan ekosistem. Untuk itu, polusi thermal inipun harus dihindari. Sebaiknya industri-industri jika akan membuang air buangan ke perairan harus memperhatikan hal ini.

3.1.6. Bahan buangan zat kimia
Bahan buangan zat kimia banyak ragamnya, tetapi dalam bahan pencemar air ini akan dikelompokkan menjadi :
a. Sabun (deterjen, sampo dan bahan pembersih lainnya),
b. Bahan pemberantas hama (insektisida),
c. Zat warna kimia,
d. Zat radioaktif
a. Sabun
Adanya bahan buangan zat kimia yang berupa sabun (deterjen, sampo dan bahan pembersih lainnya) yang berlebihan di dalam air ditandai dengan timbulnya buih-buih sabun pada permukaan air. Sebenarnya ada perbedaan antara sabun dan deterjen serta bahan pembersih lainnya. Sabun berasal dari asam lemak (stearat, palmitat atau oleat) yang direaksikan dengan basa Na(OH) atau K(OH), berdasarkan reaksi kimia berikut ini :
C17H35COOH + Na(OH) → C17H35COONa + H2O
Asam stearat basa sabun
Sabun natron (sabun keras) adalah garam natrium asam lemak seperti pada contoh reaksi di atas. Sedangkan sabun lunak adalah garam kalium asam lemak yang diperoleh dari reaksi asam lemak dengan basa K(OH). Sabun lemak diberi pewarna yang menarik dan pewangi (parfum) yang enak serta bahan antiseptic seperti pada sabun mandi. Beberapa sifat sabun antara lain adalah sebagai berikut :
a. Larutan sabun mempunyai sifat membersihkan karena dapat mengemulsikan
kotoran yang melekat pada badan atau pakaian
b. Sabun dengan air sadah tidak dapat membentuk busa, tapi akan membentuk
endapan :
2 (C17H35COONa) + CaSO4 → (C17H35COO)2Ca + Na2SO4
endapan
c. Larutan sabun bereaksi basa karena terjadi hidrolisis sebagian.
Sedangkan deterjen adalah juga bahan pembersih sepeti halnya sabun, akan tetapi dibuat dari senyawa petrokimia. Deterjen mempunyai kelebihan dibandingkan dengan sabun, karena dapat bekerja pada air sadah. Bahan deterjen yang umum digunakan adalah dedocylbenzensulfonat. Deterjen dalam air akan mengalami ionisassi membentuk komponen bipolar aktif yang akan mengikat ion Ca dan/atau ion Mg pada air sadah. Komponen bipolar aktif terbentuk pada ujung dodecylbenzen-sulfonat. Untuk dapat membersihkan kotoran dengan baik, deterjen diberi bahan pembentuk yang bersifat alkalis. Contoh bahan pembentuk yang bersifat alkalis adalah natrium tripoliposfat.
Bahan buangan berupa sabun dan deterjen di dalam air lingkungan akan mengganggu karena alasan berikut :
a. Larutan sabun akan menaikkan pH air sehingga dapat menggangg kehidupan
organisme di dalam air. Deterjen yang menggunakan bahan non-Fosfat akan
menaikkan pH air sampai sekitar 10,5-11
b. Bahan antiseptic yang ditambahkan ke dalam sabun/deterjen juga mengganggu
kehidupan mikro organisme di dalam air, bahkan dapat mematikan
c. Ada sebagian bahan sabun atau deterjen yang tidak dapat dipecah (didegradasi)
oleh mikro organisme yang ada di dalam air. Keadaan ini sudah barang tentu
akan merugikan lingkungan. Namun akhir-akhir ini mulai banyak digunakan
bahan sabun/deterjen yang dapat didegradsi oleh mikroorganisme

b. Bahan pemberantas Hama
Pemakaian bahan pemberantas hama (insektisida) pada lahan pertanian seringkali mekiputi daerah yang sangat luas, sehingga sisa insektisida pada daerah pertanian tersebut cukup banyak. Sisa bahan insektisida tersebut dapat sampai ke air lingkungan melalui pengairan sawah, melalui hujan yang jatuh pada daerah pertanian kemudian mengalir ke sungai atau danau di sekitarnya. Seperti halnya pada pencemaran udara, semua jenis bahan insektisida bersifat racun apabila sampai kedalam air lingkungan.
Bahan insektisida dalam air sulit untuk dipecah oleh mikroorganisme, kalaupun biasanya hal itu akan berlangsung dalam waktu yang lama. Waktu degradasi oleh mikroorganisme berselang antara beberapa minggu sampai dengan beberapa tahun. Bahan insektisida seringkali dicampur dengan senyawa minyak bumi sehingga air yang terkena bahan buangan pemberantas hama ini permukaannya akan tertutup lapisan minyak
c. Zat Warna Kimia
Zat warna dipakai hampir pada semua industri. Tanpa memakai zat warna, hasil atau produk industri tidak menarik. Oleh karena itu hampir semua produk memanfaatkannya agar produk itu dapat dipasarkan dengan mudah.
Pada dasarnya semua zat warna adalah racun bagi tubuh manusia. Oleh karena itu pencemaran zat warna ke air lingkungan perlu mendapat perhatian sunggh-sungguh agar tidak sampai masuk ke dalam tubuh manusia melalui air minum. Ada zat warna tertentu yang relatif aman bagi manusia, yaitu zat warna yang digunakan pada industri bahan makanan dan minuman, industri farmasi/obat-obatan.
Zat warna tersusun dari chromogen dan auxochrome. Chromogen merupakan senyawa aromatic yang berisi chromopore, yaitu zat pemberi warna yang berasal dari radikal kimia, misal kelompok nitroso (-NO), kelompok azo (-N=N-), kelompok etilen (>C=C<) dan lain lain. Macam-macam warna dapat diperoleh dari penggabungan radikal kimia tersebut di atas dengan senyawa lain. Sedangkan auxochrome adalah radikal yang memudahkan terjadinya pelarutan, sehingga zat warna dapat mudah meresap dengan baik ke dalam bahan yang akan diberi warna. Contoh auxochrome adalah –COOH atau –SO3H atau kelompok pembentuk garam –NH2 atau –OH.
Zat warna dapat pula diperoleh dari senyawa anorganik dan mineral alam yang disebut dengan pigmen. Ada pula bahan tambahan yang digunakan sesuai dengan fungsinya, misalnya bahan pembentuk lapisan film (misal, bahan vernis, emulsi lateks), bahan pengencer (misal, terpentin, naftalen), bahan pengering (missal, Co, Mn, naftalen), bahan anti mengelupas (missal, polihidroksi fenol) dan bahan pembentuk elastic (misal, minyak).
Berdasarkan bahan susunan zat warna dan bahan-bahan yang ditambahkan, dapat dimengerti bahwa hampir semua zat warna kimia adalah racun. Apabila masuk ke dalam tubuh manusia dapat bersifat cocarcinogenik, yaitu merangsang tumbuhnya kanker. Oleh sebab itu, pembuangan zat kimia ke air lingkungan sangatlah berbahaya. Selain sifatnya racun, zat warna kimia juga akan mempengaruhi kandungan oksigen dalam air mempengaruhi pH air lingkungan, yang menjadikan gangguan bagi mikroorganisme dan hewan air.
d. Zat radioaktif
Tidak tertutup kemungkanan adanya pembuangan sisa zat radioaktif ke air lingkungan secara langsung. Ini dimungkinkan karena aplikasi teknologi nuklir yang menggunakan zat radioaktif pada berbagai bidang sudah banyak dikembangkan, sebagai contoh adalah aplikasi teknologinuklir pada bidang pertanian, kedokteran, farmasi dan lain lain. Adanya zat radioaktif dalam air lingkungan jelas sangat membahayakan bagi lingkungan dan manusia. Zat radioaktif dapat menimbulkan kerusakan biologis baik melalui efek langsung atau efek tertunda.

IV. DAMPAK PENCEMARAN AIR

Pencemaran air dapat berdampak sangat luas, misalnya dapat meracuni air minum, meracuni makanan hewan, menjadi penyebab ketidak seimbangan ekosistem sungai dan danau, pengrusakan hutan akibat hujan asam dsb.
Di badan air, sungai dan danau, nitrogen dan fosfat dari kegiatan pertanian telah menyebabkan pertumbuhan tanaman air yang di luar kendali yang disebut eutrofikasi (eutrofication). Ledakan pertumbuhan tersebut menyebabkan oksigen yang seharusnya digunakan bersama oleh seluruh hewan/tumbuhan air, menjadi berkurang. Ketika tanaman air tersebut mati, dekomposisinya menyedot lebih banyak oksigen. Akibatnya ikan akan mati dan aktivitas bakteri akan menurun.
Dampak pencemaran air pada umumnya dibagi dalam 4 kategori (KLH, 2004)
- dampak terhadap kehidupan biota air
- dampak terhadap kualitas air tanah
- dampak terhadap kesehatan
- dampak terhadap estetika lingkungan


4.1. Dampak terhadap kehidupan biota air
Banyaknya zat pencemar pada air limbah akan menyebabkan menurunnya kadar oksigen terlarut dalam air tersebut. Sehingga akan mengakibatkan kehidupan dalam air yang membutuhkan oksigen terganggu serta mengurangi perkembangannya. Selain itu kematian dapat pula disebabkan adanya zat beracun yang juga menyebabkan kerusakan pada tanaman dan tumbuhan air.
Akibat matinya bakteri-bakteri, maka proses penjernihan air secara alamiah yang seharusnya terjadi pada air limbah juga terhambat. Dengan air limbah menjadi sulit terurai. Panas dari industri juaga akan membawa dampak bagi kematian organisme, apabila air limbah tidak didinginkan dahulu.
4.2. Dampak terhadap kualitas air tanah
Pencemaran air tanah oleh tinja yang biasa diukur dengan faecal coliform telah terjadi dalam skala yang luas, hal ini telah dibuktikan oleh suatu survey sumur dangkal di Jakarta. Banyak penelitian yang mengindikasikan terjadinya pencemaran tersebut.
4.3. Dampak terhadap kesehatan
Peran air sebagai pembawa penyakit menular bermacam-macam antara lain :
- air sebagai media untuk hidup mikroba pathogen
- air sebagai sarang insekta penyebar penyakit
- jumlah air yang tersedia tak cukup, sehingga manusia bersangkutan tak dapat membersihkan diri
- air sebagai media untuk hidup vector penyakit
Ada beberapa penyakit yang masuk dalam katagori water-borne diseases, atau penyakit-penyakit yang dibawa oleh air, yang masih banyak terdapat di daerah-daerah. Penyakit-penyakit ini dapat menyebar bila mikroba penyebabnya dapat masuk ke dalam sumber air yang dipakai masyarakat untuk memenuhi kebutuhan sehari-hari. Sedangkan jenis mikroba yang dapat menyebar lewat air antara lain, bakteri, protozoa dan metazoa.
4.4. Dampak terhadap estetika lingkungan
Dengan semakin banyaknya zat organic yang dibuang ke lingkungan perairan, maka perairan tersebut akan semakin tercemar yang biasanya ditandai dengan bau yang menyengat disamping tumpukan yang dapat mengurangi estetika lingkungan. Masalah limbah minyak atau lemak juga dapat mengurangi estetika. Selain bau, limbah tersebut juga menyebabkan tempat sekitarnya menjadi licin. Sedangkan limbah detergen atau sabun akan menyebabkan penumpukan busa yang sangat banyak. Inipun dapat mengurangi estetika.

V. PENANGGULANGANGAN PENCEMARAN AIR

Pengendalian/penanggulangan pencemaran air di Indonesia telah diatur melalui Peraturan Pemerintah Nomor 82 tahun 2001 tentang Pengelolaan Kualitas dan Pengendalian Pencemaran Air. Secara umum hal ini meliputi pencemaran air baik oleh instansi ataupun non-instansi. Salah satu upaya serius yang telah dilakukan Pemerintah dalam pengendalian pencemaran air adalah melalui Program Kali Bersih (PROKASIH). Program ini merupakan upaya untuk menurunkan beban limbah cair khususnya yang berasal dari kegiatan usaha skala menengah dan besar, serta dilakukan secara bwertahap untuk mengendalikan beban pencemaran dari sumber-sumber lainnya. Program ini juga berusaha untuk menata pemukiman di bantaran sungai dengan melibatkan masyarakat setempat (KLH, 2004).
Pada prinsipnya ada 2 (dua) usaha untuk menanggulangi pencemaran, yaitu penanggulangan secara non-teknis dan secara teknis. Penanggulangan secara non-teknis yaitu suatu usaha untuk mengurangi pencemaran lingkungan dengan cara menciptakan peraturan perundangan yang dapat merencanakan, mengatur dan mengawasi segala macam bentuk kegiatan industri dan teknologi sehingga tidak terjadi pencemaran. Peraturan perundangan ini hendaknya dapat memberikan gambaran secara jelas tentang kegiatan industri yang akan dilaksanakan, misalnya meliputi AMDAL, pengaturan dan pengawasan kegiatan dan menanamkan perilaku disiplin. Sedangkan penanggulangan secara teknis bersumber pada perlakuan industri terhadap perlakuan buangannya, misalnya dengan mengubah proses, mengelola limbah atau menambah alat bantu yang dapat mengurangi pencemaran.
Sebenarnya penanggulangan pencemaran air dapat dimulai dari diri kita sendiri. Dalam keseharian, kita dapat mengurangi pencemaran air dengan cara mengurangi produksi sampah (minimize) yang kita hasilkan setiap hari. Selain itu, kita dapat pula mendaur ulang (recycle) dan mendaur pakai (reuse) sampah tersebut.
Kitapun perlu memperhatikan bahan kimia yang kita buang dari rumah kita. Karena saat ini kita telah menjadi masyarakat kimia, yang menggunakan ratusan jenis zat kimia dalam keseharian kita, seperti mencuci, memasak, membersihkan rumah, memupuk tanaman, dan sebagainya. Kita harus bertanggung jawab terhadap berbagai sampah seperti makanan dalam kemasan kaleng, minuman dalam botol dan sebagainya, yang memuat unsur pewarna pada kemasannya dan kemudian terserap oleh air tanah pada tempat pembuangan akhir. Bahkan pilihan kita untuk bermobil atau berjalan kaki, turut menyumbangkan emisi asam atu hidrokarbon ke dalam atmosfir yang akhirnya berdampak pada siklus air alam.
Menjadi konsumen yang bertanggung jawab merupakan tindakan yang bijaksana. Sebagai contoh, kritis terhadap barang yang dikonsumsi, apakah nantinya akan menjadi sumber bencana yang persisten, eksplosif, korosif dan beracun atau degradable (dapat didegradasi alam)? Apakah barang yang kita konsumsi nantinya dapat meracuni manusia, hewan, dan tumbuhan aman bagi makhluk hidup dan lingkungan ?
Teknologi dapat kita gunakan untuk mengatasi pencemaran air. Instalasi pengolahan air bersih, instalasi pengolahan air limbah, yang dioperasikan dan dipelihara baik, mampu menghilangkan substansi beracun dari air yang tercemar. Dari segi kebijakan atau peraturanpun mengenai pencemaran air ini telah ada. Bila kita ingin benar-benar hal tersebut dapat dilaksanakan, maka penegakan hukumnya harus dilaksanakan pula. Pada akhirnya, banyak pilihan baik secara pribadi ataupun social (kolektif) yang harus ditetapkan, secara sadar maupun tidak, yang akan mempengaruhi tingkat pencemaran dimanapun kita berada. Walaupun demikian, langkah pencegahan lebih efektif dan bijaksana.
Melalui penanggulangan pencemaran ini diharapkan bahwa pencemaran akan berkurang dan kualitas hidup manusia akan lebih ditingkatkan, sehingga akan didapat sumber air yang aman, bersih dan sehat.

          2017 Arkansas Times Academic All-Star Team   
Meet the best and brightest high school students in the state.

The class of 2017, our 23rd, is made up of athletes, coders, budding politicians and brain experts. There's rarely a B on the transcripts of these students — in not just this, their senior year, but in any year of their high school careers.

Back in 1995, we created the Academic All-Star Team to honor what we then called "the silent majority — the kids who go to school, do their homework (most of it, anyway), graduate and go on to be contributing members of society." Too often, we argued then, all Arkansans heard about young people was how poorly they were faring. Or, when students did get positive attention, it came for athletic achievement.

As you read profiles of this year's All-Stars, it should be abundantly clear that good things are happening in Arkansas schools and there are many academic achievers who deserve to be celebrated. You should get a good idea, as well, of how these stellar students are busy outside school, with extracurricular activities, volunteer work, mission activities and more.

They'll be honored this week at a ceremony at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with plaques and $250 cash awards.

Many college plans listed here are not set in stone, as students await information on scholarships and acceptances.

CAROLINE COPLIN-CHUDY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: Mount St. Mary Academy
Parents: (guardian) Dennis Chudy
College plans: Duke University

Caroline Coplin-Chudy has a 4.4 grade point average — high enough to rank second in her class at Mount St. Mary Academy — and lost her mother to leukemia during her sophomore year, something she told us came to be a source of inspiration and drive during her academic development. "It was a big adjustment. After my mom passed away, it was just my stepdad. It's a weird realization coming to the idea that both of your parents are gone, and it's just you. ... I still think of her every single day. She motivates me to do well in everything, because my whole life I wanted to make her proud." Caroline is president of Mount St. Mary's Investment Club and of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). She's also been a regular volunteer for several years at the Little Rock Compassion Center, whose recovery branch provides meals and health resources to people suffering from addiction. Caroline said she found healing from her own grief in the friendships she forged there. As the recipient of a Questbridge scholarship, described by Caroline's guidance counselor and nominator Amy Perkins as a program where lower-income students qualify for tuition to schools with which they "match" via an early decision process, Caroline will attend Duke University on a full scholarship. "I'm going to study biology and psych, with a minor in Spanish. My plan is to work at the Duke Center for Addiction [Science and Technology] helping people with drug addictions overcome that sort of thing. It's something that I've had experience with, watching my family go through things like that."

AXEL NTAMATUNGIRO
Age: 17
Hometown: Pine Bluff
High School: Subiaco Academy
Parents: Sixte Ntamatungiro and Sylvana Niciteretse
College plans: Rice University, neuroscience

Axel Ntamatungiro grew up among books and maps dispersed throughout his home that "paint[ed] the walls with nuanced shades of knowledge." It shows. Not often can a high school senior explain, as Axel does, his love for studying the brain so easily. "Neuroscience is basically a neuron turning on and off," he said. "The fact that you have billions of these combinations that lead to consciousness, that's unbelievable." To continue learning about the mind, Axel is headed to Rice University on a full ride as a QuestBridge scholar. Maybe medical school or graduate school after that. Axel said his parents taught him a "humble intellectualism" that helped him understand "the irrationality of life." They always told him: "Work hard, but you need to realize you don't always get what you deserve." And life has been, at times, irrational and difficult for his family. Axel was the only member of his family born in the United States — in Little Rock in 1999. The rest migrated from Burundi in the early 1990s. They stayed here as the Rwandan genocide inflicted incredible damage in the area. That past was never hidden from Axel. "Instead of avoiding my questions, my parents level-headedly answered [them], telling me about Belgian colonialism, Hutu-Tutsi tension and the systematic poverty afflicting Burundi," he said. Maybe that is why Axel has never been afraid to ask big questions. He said it also helped to have a diverse group of friends who taught him new things. At his cafeteria table for lunch are kids from all over: Nigeria, Fort Smith, Japan, Bentonville and Russia. Everyone's small stories add to a global perspective, something bigger from something small, kind of like those neurons.

JADE DESPAIN
Age: 18
Hometown: Springdale
High School: Haas Hall Academy (Fayetteville)
Parents: Brenan and Tiffany DeSpain
College plans: U.S. Naval Academy, nuclear engineering

For Jade DeSpain, the question, "Where's your hometown?" isn't necessarily as straightforward as it seems. The National Merit semifinalist, swimming star and Quiz Bowler spent much of her childhood in Beijing, where her parents — both fluent in Mandarin — taught her Chinese concurrently with English (and where, she notes, she acquired an "incredible prowess with chopsticks.") "We've moved around so much that I don't really have a 'hometown,' but Springdale is the closest I've ever gotten," she said. She's made her impact there, too, tutoring students free of charge through her volunteer work with the M&N Augustine Foundation and putting in time at the Arkansas Council for the Blind and the Springdale Animal Shelter. Jade is ranked second in her class, and her high school transcript is full of aced courses in trigonometry, physics and calculus. She's also the co-founder of Haas Hall Academy's coding club, so a career in nuclear energy development — Jade's field of choice — isn't just an aspiration; it's the plan. "I have a deep appreciation for nature," she told us, citing Devil's Den State Park as a spot to which she feels closely connected, and stressing the importance of preserving natural spaces and developing more long-term options for sustainable energy. On Christmas Day 2016, Jade checked her email to find that she'd attained something she'd wanted as early as age 12: acceptance to the U.S. Naval Academy. There, she'll major in nuclear engineering and complete her five mandatory post-Academy years in the Navy, after which she hopes to acquire a Ph.D. in the field.

AVERY ELLIOTT
Age: 18
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and Melissa Elliott
College plans: University of Arkansas, medicine

Though many of our All-Stars seem destined from birth for academic greatness, there is the occasional inspiring All-Star who has had to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. One of those is Cabot High School's Avery Elliott, who was born with nystagmus, a condition that causes involuntary eye movements that can make it hard for sufferers to concentrate and learn. Though it's hard to imagine it now, when she was in elementary school Avery found herself falling further and further behind her classmates in reading because of her condition. "That was difficult," she said. "I was behind schedule until about third or fourth grade. I would have to go home and really work with my parents to keep up with the rest of the class." Even though she struggled early on, Avery said that, in a way, the nystagmus contributed to her success and gave her a direction to follow. "I had to learn to really study even outside of school," she said. "I learned some very good study habits. But I think it also really affected where I wanted to go as far as my career. ... I really learned that a medical team can not only dispense medicine, but can really affect someone's life." A National Merit finalist who has volunteered extensively with Special Olympics and already completed 43 hours of college-level coursework, Avery has been awarded the University of Arkansas Fellowship. She plans to study medicine at UAMS after completing her undergrad degree, then practice in Arkansas. That goal has always pushed her to succeed academically. "I wanted to go into the medical field from an early age," she said, "so I knew starting out in high school that I needed to make very good grades in order to get where I needed to. I had to really learn the material, rather than just trying to ace a test."

JARED GILLIAM
Age: 17
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and LeAnne Gilliam
College plans: University of Arkansas, engineering

When most young people say they want to change the world, it's easy to believe that's just pie-in-the-sky thinking by someone who hasn't yet been through the Academy of Hard Knocks. When Jared Gilliam says he wants to change the world, however, there's a good chance he might actually pull it off. Jared even has a plan: He'll change the world through engineering. A National Merit finalist and AP scholar with a GPA of 4.18 and a perfect score of 36 on the ACT, Jared is well placed to do just that. A musician who plays percussion with the Cabot High Marching Band, Jared said his favorite subject in school is math. "I think I'm mostly interested in engineering because I've always been sort of a problem-solver," he said. "I've enjoyed math and science, working through things and finding solutions to everyday problems. This year, I've been in robotics, so we've spent time working on a robot to perform various tasks. I've enjoyed that a lot. I think engineering is where my ability would best be used." He'll attend the University of Arkansas, which has offered him the Honors College Fellowship. He said the drive to excel academically has always been a part of his life. "I've grown up being encouraged to do well, and I guess I have my parents to thank for that and all my teachers," he said. "I think knowing that I have the ability to do all of this, I feel compelled to do what I can to make a difference. I think life would be pretty boring if I didn't go out there and do all the things I do. I don't think I could settle for not being successful."

BENJAMIN KEATING
Age: 18
Hometown: Fort Smith
High School: Southside High School
Parents: Drs. Bill and Janice Keating
College plans: Undecided

If you were looking for a ringing endorsement of Ben Keating's character, you'd need to look no further than Amy Slater, the guidance counselor who nominated him for our Academic All-Stars roster and who said of Ben, "He is all the things I hope my son turns out to be. ... He really thinks about things, and he practices the trumpet and piano for hours a day. It's crazy, his dedication." Ben probably had something to prove here; he admits to some skepticism on the part of his mother when he announced he'd be pursuing a career in music. He's certainly proved his mettle; Ben is band president at Southside, was a principal trumpet for the 2017 National Youth Honor Orchestra, first chair for Southside's Wind Symphony and for the All-State Jazz Band and was ranked in the top-tier bands for All-State Band and All-State Orchestra each year from 2014-16. The accolades go on and on: Ben has received a Young Artist Award from the International Trumpet Guild, a Gold Medal from the National Piano Guild and superior ratings from the National Federation of Music Clubs competitions for over a decade. He plays for the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra and as a volunteer musician for the Fort Smith Community Band. Ben is still deciding where to attend college, but wherever he goes, he hopes to continue playing with an orchestra. Eventually, he wants to teach at the university level. "Ultimately," he wrote, "I want to use my passion to unite people of all different races, backgrounds and cultures. In today's society that is politically and culturally divided, it is more important than ever to share the universal language of music."

KATHERINE HAHN
Age: 17
Hometown: Hindsville
High School: Huntsville High School
Parents: Shannon Hahn
College plans: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, biochemical engineering

Katherine Hahn is ranked first in her class at Huntsville High School, which she attends because her hometown of Hindsville is too small to support its own school system. The population of Hindsville is "about 75 people," she told us. At Huntsville High, Katherine plays bass drum in the marching band and marimba/xylophone in the concert band and runs with the Huntsville cross-country team. Her real passion, though, is science. "I think I've always wanted to go to a college that was science-based and research-based," she told us. Her high school principal, Roxanne Enix, noted her own surprise when Katherine announced that she'd take 10 credits her senior year, instead of the recommended eight. "I thought she had lost her mind," Enix stated. Those credits, over half of which are in AP classes, are what Katherine hopes have prepared her for the rigorous workload at MIT. Aiming for a career in pharmaceutical development, Katherine plans to study biochemical engineering, something she said resonated personally with her as a result of her mother's struggle with skin cancer. "Biology helps me understand why medicine does the things it does," Katherine told us. "Whenever I first started out, I wanted to do environmental stuff," she said, but turned her attention to drug delivery systems after observing so many friends and loved ones battling cancer. "I want to help stop people from being scared of losing people," she explained. Katherine, a native of Tahlequah, Okla., who moved to Arkansas around fifth grade, has served on the Madison County Health Coalition as Youth Leader and was named Student of the Year in 2017 by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and Huntsville High School.

GEORGIANA BURNSIDE
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Bob and Ann Burnside
College plans: Stanford University, biology and public policy

When this reporter mentioned to friends at UAMS that she'd just spoken to an amazingly poised, optimistic and intelligent young woman with a spinal cord injury, they said in unison, "You mean Georgiana Burnside." Her reputation as a teenager who at 16 was paralyzed from the waist down in a snow skiing accident but who considers the event a "blessing" no doubt goes further than UAMS, all the way to Denver's Craig Hospital, where she spent "the most memorable two months in my life," she said, and where she returns to continue her rehabilitation. What is a spinal cord injury? She answers that it is a) a life changed in a split second, b) finding out that a bad attitude is the true disability, c) a time to show off wheelchair tricks, and d) spontaneous moments of unfortunate incontinence. In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Georgiana writes, "my physical brokenness has developed wholeness in my heart about the capacity life holds for individuals regardless of their disabilities." In a phone interview, Georgiana, once a figure skater, talked about her work with Easter Seals, fundraisers for Craig Hospital, and giving talks and testimony about her faith. Georgiana has regained the ability to walk with hiking sticks and leg braces, thanks to the strength in her quads. And, thanks to support from the High Fives Foundation in Truckee, Calif., which sponsors athletes with injuries and which has paid for some of her rehabilitation, Georgiana returned to the slopes over spring break, skiing upright with the aid of long forearm equipment. At Stanford, she'll study to be a doctor, with a goal to return to Craig Hospital as a physician who'll treat other injured youths who, though they may have, like Georgiana, at first believed their life was over, will learn they have "a unique role ... enabling the advancement of society."

MITCHELL HARVEY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: North Little Rock High School
Parents: David and Susan Harvey
College plans: Likely Mississippi State University, chemical engineering

Mitchell Harvey is a big fan of the periodic table. "The elements are amazing little things," he wrote in his Academic All-Star essay. "They make up everything, yet we hardly see them in their pure form in everyday life." Mitchell decided they needed more exposure, so he started collecting examples of the elements and taking them to school for his peers and teachers to see. He extracted helium from an abandoned tank on the side of the road. He found zinc in wheel weights, grew crystals of copper with electrolysis and made bromine, which he describes as "a blood-red liquid that fumes profusely," from a "crude" homemade distillation setup and pool chemicals. Though you can buy sodium readily, Mitchell made his by melting drain cleaner (sodium hydroxide) with a blowtorch and then passing a current through it, separating the mixture into sodium metal, oxygen and water. His parents were OK with the procedure, he says, because he wore a Tyvek suit, three pairs of gloves, safety goggles and a face shield. While on a college visit in California last summer, Mitchell toured Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and was impressed by the large periodic table display exhibit there. So he decided to build one for North Little Rock High. He got money from the school's alumni group, the Wildcat Foundation, to pay for the supplies necessary to construct the 9-foot-by-6-foot display. He hopes to have it completed in the next two weeks and fill it with examples of elements he has collected, though he may need additional funding to pay for other elements. No. 1 in a class of 687, Mitchell scored a perfect 36 on the ACT. He's also an Eagle Scout, and led a project to plant 800 native hardwood seedlings at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. After college, Mitchell said, he might start his own waste remediation business. "The business model I would be going for would be taking some byproduct that's hazardous and turning it into something useful."

CARSON MOLDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Mabelvale
High school: Bryant High SCHOOL
Parents: Kevin and Ruby Molder
College plans: University of Arkansas

Not everybody plays the mellophone and likes to draw up better interstate exchanges, but Carson Molder does both. The University of Arkansas Honors College-bound student, No. 1 in his class, likes to create three-dimensional schemes in his head, and has been creating road designs since he was young. But as a musician who plays the French horn in his school's orchestra and the mellophone in the Legacy of Bryant marching band, and who has won a band scholarship in addition to his Honors College reward to the UA, he said that one day he may be an audio engineer. "I'm going to put things together and see what sticks," he said of his future. Meanwhile, Carson said the internet has been his Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, taking him to new places that he otherwise could not get to. "I can count on my hands the number of times I have set foot outside Arkansas," Carson wrote in an essay for the Arkansas Times. But with the internet, "I can gaze into the redwood forests of California and the skyscrapers of New York City without leaving my desk." Without the internet, he said in a phone interview, "I would not be at the top of my class." Carson added, "It's not going to replace going out and visiting these things, but if you're a kid and don't have the money to go out, you can visit Yellowstone." Carson, who describes himself as "really ambitious," is looking forward to studying with Dr. Alan Mantooth, the director of the UA National Center for Reliable Electric Power Transmission. The UA, he said, "will provide me the tools" he'll need to succeed in graduate school, which he hopes will be Stanford University.

OLIVIA LANGER
Age: 18
Hometown: Jonesboro
High school: Brookland High School
Parents: Kelly Webb and Jonathan Langer
College plans: University of California, Santa Barbara, chemistry

You might think that a student who is No. 1 in her class and a National Merit finalist with nary a B on her high school transcript might not consider one of her greatest achievements her selection as her high school's drum major three years in a row. But here's the thing: Schoolwork comes easy to Olivia Langer. "I never had to work hard," she told us. In fact, her style of learning is "conversation-based," she said; she enjoys "debate without argument." But music was different: "I struggled at points, and had to put in extra work to be good." Her selection as drum major was "something I know I've worked for," she said, and she has enjoyed the responsibilities that come with it. "I like to take care of people. The band calls me band mom," she added. Beside numerous academic awards, Olivia also earned a 2017 state Horatio Alger scholarship for students who have overcome great obstacles. Hers, Olivia said, was financial: She's always had a place to stay and food to eat, but she hasn't been able to afford academic programs. "Honestly, I wasn't able to visit any of the colleges I applied to," she said. So she will see the UC Santa Barbara campus for the first time when she arrives this fall. She's considering a double major in chemistry and anthropology; she's interested in the evolutionary side of anthropology, and plans to seek graduate and post-graduate degrees.

REBECCA PARHAM
Age: 18
Hometown: Alma
High School: Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts
Parents: Eileen and Rick Parham
College plans: University of Arkansas or Hendrix College

On a visit to Hanamaki, Japan, with her school, Rebecca Parham noticed that once a month all the citizens would clean the front of their homes and shops. Folks would give each other gifts, too. "It was clear people tended to think for the whole," she said. "I thought that was really nice." An avid chemist, Rebecca did not just improve her Japanese on the trip, she brought those lessons of helping the community back to Arkansas. Her work has been at the intersection of heady science and community impact. In her robotics club, she noticed that girls were less likely to participate. "I decided that was not OK," she said. So, she designed a day with LEGO kits to encourage women to pursue STEM education. That desire to make an impact goes beyond school, too. For her senior project, Rebecca designed a test for homebuyers to see if meth had been cooked on their property (yes, meth). Her parents, on hearing of this project choice, asked her to "please explain a little bit further ... ." Here's the gist: The method of meth production in rural areas has shifted to something called the Birch reduction; older testing kits would no longer work. But Rebecca thought she could produce one that could. She designed a flame test. It finds lithium compounds left behind. The process of invention was "definitely frustrating," Rebecca said, but you "learn things you never thought of before." Rebecca did not plan to spend senior year in her dorm late at night "searching online" how to identify meth production, but she has a driving curiosity toward science and how it "connects to the world." She hopes to work in renewable energy — to be part of the global community, from Japan to Arkansas — making the world a nice place in which to live.

Grant Robinson's father is a cardiologist, and Grant long figured he would follow in his dad's footsteps. But now he's not so sure. Last summer, he was selected, among thousands of applicants from around the world, to participate in a Stanford University summer engineering program. He got to experience a taste of college life, to take advantage of Stanford's decked-out labs and to tour the area to see results of civil engineering. The most memorable part of the program? Grant's small group built a Rube Goldberg machine — a complicated gadget that performs a simple task in a convoluted way — that, by Grant's estimation, was "the most complex and aesthetically pleasing" in the program. It included an electromagnet the group handmade and chemical reactions triggered by the machine. Grant's academic achievements are the byproduct of a natural curiosity. He said he spends what little free time he has exploring YouTube, trying to figure out the way the world works. Another influence: His father, who pulled himself out of poverty to become a doctor, has always instilled in him the importance of hard work. The message clearly stuck. Grant is second in his class of 263, with a 4.27 GPA. He scored a 35 on the ACT. He's a Presidential Scholar. His classmates voted him most likely to receive the Nobel Prize. He also participated in Project Unify (now known as Unified Champion Schools), an effort by the Special Olympics to get young people with and without special needs to come together for activities. Grant helped plan a basketball tournament as part of the project. In the fall, he'll be rooting on the Razorbacks at the University of Arkansas.

College plans: Cornell University, industrial and labor relations

Whatever you were doing by your senior year in high school, chances are you probably hadn't already authored a book, much less a book on the complicated intersection of taxation and politics. John Snyder has, though. His book, "The Politics of Fiscal Policy," explores the political aspects of economics, including the pros and cons of various governmental tax schemes and their effect on government spending. It's for sale on Amazon right now. "It's pretty concise," John said, "but I wanted a way to express all my ideas in economic terms. That was a great way to do that." A history buff who serves as vice president of his class, John has a stunning 4.49 GPA and is ranked first in his class of 129. Though he wanted to be a lawyer when he was younger, his plan now is to go into investment banking. "Ultimately I want to have my own hedge fund — this thing called an activist hedge fund — and eventually I want to be actively involved in politics, whether that's in the midst of my business career or after ... . I'd love to run for public office one day." At Cornell University, John will be studying industrial and labor relations, a field that marries his love of multiple subjects. "Basically it ties in business, law, economics and history all into sort of one degree," he said. "You can do limitless things [with the degree]. Some people go into law school, some go into banking, some go to politics. That's why I chose that degree." John said his philosophy is that we have only a limited amount of time on earth, and so we should try to make the most of our lives. "I think there are a lot of things I can do to change the way things currently are in society, whether it's related to business or in academia or public policy," he said. "If I don't play a role in that and I'm not striving to do my best, I would feel like I'm wasting my potential."

Benton High School's Big Man on Campus — No. 1 in his class, captain of the football team, an AP Scholar, straight As — can add to his resume the fact that he helped build his home. Preston, his two brothers and his mother bounced around a bit after her divorce, from Texas to Arkansas, living with grandparents and friends, Preston said. Then the family was selected by Habitat for Humanity, and he and his brothers pitched in to build their house. "It was the first place I could truly call home and it allowed me the stability I needed to grow into the kind of student I am today," he wrote in his essay for the Arkansas Times. Preston, who also helped build a school outreach group called SERVE to help new or struggling students, also credits sports for giving him purpose. He recently volunteered to trade in the pigskin for a basketball, joining a team that played boys at the Alexander Juvenile Detention Center. "It was an awesome experience," Preston said in a phone interview. "We were a little bit nervous at first" at the detention center, he said, but the team enjoyed the game — even though they lost to the Alexander team, formed to reward inmates with good behavior. "They practice every day," Preston said. Preston has received a $70,000 Honors College scholarship at Fayetteville. He won't be playing football with the Razorbacks. Instead he is thinking of following a pre-med track that will lead him to sports medicine. He plans to go Greek, as well.

College plans: undecided

Karina Bao embraces complexity. The Central High School valedictorian (in a class of 636) is a member of the school's back-to-back state champion Ethics Bowl Team, for which she said she spent hours "researching, discussing and sometimes even arguing" case studies. Unlike debate, she said Ethics Bowl is "really about the back-and-forth and considering different caveats and nuances and considerations" in issues ranging from local food to gender identity. As president of the school's Brain Club, she leads discussions on brain diseases, disorders and anatomy. It's a role for which she's more than qualified: She placed first in the U.S. Brain Bee, a youth neuroscience competition in which contestants answer questions about anatomy and make diagnoses based on patient actors. Placing No. 1 in the U.S. competition landed Karina a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, to the International Brain Bee, which happened to coincide with a Federation of International Neuroscientists conference, where Karina got to talk to scientists from all over the world about their groundbreaking research. She placed fifth in the international competition. A perennial outstanding delegate winner at Model United Nations competitions, Karina said Model U.N. has helped her to "not be scared of the complexity and interconnectedness of pressing issues we face today." In her spare time, Karina volunteers on the oncology wing of Baptist Hospital. "You don't get to do much," she said. "But at least we get to talk to people and help them with whatever they need and be there to listen." In her Academic All-Stars essay, Karina echoed the same drive for understanding: "The stories other people share with me become not my own when I retell them, but a part of humanity's collective spirit to understand each other. We grow from hours of listening and crying, to empathize, to have the strength and openness to pop each successive layer of the protective bubble that keeps us from seeing the very world in which we reside."

Though he grew up landlocked, far from the deep blue sea, Greenwood High School standout Bryce Cohea knew from an early age that he wanted to be a marine biologist. To reach that goal, Bryce had to start early. "In the ninth grade," he wrote in his Academic All-Stars essay, "I began planning out all my classes for the next four years. I wanted to graduate top of my class, and in order to do that I would need to take every advanced placement class and get an A in every class." That's exactly what he did, too, making nothing less than a perfect grade in every class for his entire high school career. With a 4.25 GPA and a rank of No. 1 in his class of 275, Bryce has volunteered extensively with the Salvation Army and collected shoes for the homeless; he helps unload trucks and stock shelves at the food bank at his church. A National Merit semifinalist, he also has the distinction of having scored the first perfect ACT score of 36 in Greenwood High School history. "I've honestly been a good test-taker," he said. "The first time I took it, I got a 34. After that, I got the test back and I worked on whatever I missed. After a few more tries, I got a 36." Bryce was still deciding on which university to attend when we spoke to him, but he definitely plans to study science. The subject has always interested him, he said. "I'm planning on majoring in biology and then specializing after that," he said.

Imani Gosserand has a journal in which she organizes the many moving parts of her life — competitive gymnastics, AP classes, computer science, Young Democrats, volunteering — into lists. Personal stuff is in there, too: bucket lists, remembrances. The journal combines the creative and the organized; it is problem-solving with an artful flare, which is how Imani operates. "I really like being able to create something of my own," she said of computer science. At a camp at Stanford University, in California, her team won the competition to program a car. Imani, not surprisingly, is good at math: She learned multiplication at age 4 and went on to skip two grades. Imani thinks schoolwork is fun. "We had a huge packet of homework problems we had to do over one of our breaks," she said. "And no one else was excited about it except for me. I was like 'Oh, I'm so excited to do all these problems!' " She brings that enthusiasm for problem-solving to bigger issues, as well. "I feel like there are so many opportunities for me because our world relies on technology, so I think I could go into any field," she said. She's excited to explore and see where she can help. "I want to meet people from around the world and hear different perspectives."

C.J. Fowler has long been around Democratic politics. His stepfather is former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. But C.J. said he decided to become more politically involved himself after he came out as gay. "The situation that I'm in is not great," he said. "People are not always accepting. But it's on me if I want to try to change that and make it better for the people who come after me. I have to make sure that my community and all marginalized communities have a seat at the table, because far too often a bunch of old gray white guys are making policies that hurt everyone else." The student body president of Central High, C.J. said he's tried to move the student council, a glorified dance committee, toward advocacy and activism for students throughout the district, whose future is being decided by those "people sitting in dark rooms." He said students too often get left out of the conversation about the district "because we're too young to have opinions. But we're not; we're living it every day." C.J. has been a fixture at Little Rock School District public comment periods. Though he can't point to any policy victories, he said at least LRSD Superintendent Mike Poore knows who he is and that he disagrees with him. C.J., who is also the executive director of Young Democrats of Arkansas, sees the backlash against President Trump as encouraging. "We're realizing that, if we're going to go all in for progressive values, we need to go all in." Rather than join the chorus of progressives in the Northeast after he finishes at Yale, C.J. says he wants to come back to Arkansas and possibly continue in politics. He admires state Sen. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock) and says he hopes if he ever holds office that he can follow her example.

"Growing up, I would always argue with everybody," Sophie Price said. Sometimes it was just to play devil's advocate, but mostly, it was because Sophie wants to find the capital-t Truth. Some of this digging for truth is class: seven AP course just this year and 12 during her time in high school. But, some of it is also talking with people, discussing issues. "The best way to improve your argument is to hear the counters, to hear the other side," Sophie said, and often she is willing to be convinced. She wants to do the right thing; she believes in justice. Which is why after college at Vanderbilt on a full scholarship, she wants to field arguments as a judge. "My whole life I've followed this ideal that you have to do what's right," Sophie said. "I want to be a judge so I can kind of decide that." Vanderbilt was the only school to which Sophie applied. She knew it was the right one for her. She arrived in Nashville on a rainy day in January, but through the gloom, she knew. "Something about the beautiful campus and the intelligent people and these varying perspectives just sold me immediately," she said. In a few months she was back at Vanderbilt for a camp where she studied law, and it cemented the deal. "There was something so exhilarating about being able to have this case and have the facts and kind of create your own narrative and really advocate for someone that drew me in," she said. Watch out, because "everything I do, I want to give it a 120 percent," Sophie said.

Fayetteville High School’s top student, with a perfect ACT score of 36, a 4.2 gradepoint average and the co-author of a paper on fractal self-assembly, is not just a bookworm. She’s a leader, her counselor Cindy Alley says, who shows “grit, motivation to succeed and a desire to help others.” She is also, Alley says, “a pure joy to be around.” In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Meagan talked about how she came to understand “ternary counters,” a base-3 method of counting in which only the digits 0, 1 and 2 are used. (Binary counters of 0 and 1 make up our computer’s “thinking,” as people with 10 fingers, we use base 10 to count.) Meagan, trying to make a “self-assembling ternary counter,” said she banged her head against “endless walls” for weeks. Then just after 1 a.m., she woke up with the answer. It’s a wise child who gives credit where credit is due: “I understood,” she wrote, “my mother’s advice about taking a break whenever I was upset.” Meagan’s paper on fractal self-assembly was published in the 22nd International Conference on DNBA Computing and Molecular Programing. She no longer lets frustration prevent her from solving a problem; sometimes, she’ll just sleep on it. Meagan told the Times she plans to attend a small conference this summer and then take some needed down time. She plans to use her degree from Fayetteville to pursue biomedical research.
          $1.5 million to Alfred State for biorefinery prototype   
Posted Date: Thursday, June 29, 2017 - 11:30

The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) recently awarded $1.5 million to Alfred State for the Biorefinery Development and Commercialization Center (BDCC). The prototype facility will help private and public partners leverage wood resources to create sustainable businesses using advanced manufacturing processes. The new grant increases the total funding raised to date for the research facility to $4.5 million. 

“This is great news for Alfred State and the entire Southern Tier. This federal investment will help bring 15 new businesses and 125 good paying pay jobs to the Southern Tier and push this region’s economy into the future,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “The work done at BDCC will help create a ‘New Forest Economy’ by working with local partners and using the region’s abundant natural resources to spur long-term economic development. I will fight tooth and nail to make sure Alfred State continues to have the resources it needs to leverage the region’s workforce and grow private enterprise.”

Lumber from the Southern Tier will help fuel Alfred State’s Biorefinery Development
and Commercialization Center.

“This award is a blueprint for new jobs, fresh opportunities, and a robust economic future for New York’s Southern Tier,” said ARC Federal Co-Chairman Earl F. Gohl.  “It is part of a strategy to bring added capital into the region, and help the region prepare to globally compete in manufacturing, technology, construction, and a variety of other industry sectors.” 

“Alfred State knows the ARC funding for the BDCC project will have a high impact by supporting equipment, training, and developing a network across the ARC region. Developing the proven Hot Water Extraction process in the BDCC will allow Alfred State to lead in biorefinery development and training in the region through the partners in the network,” said Craig R. Clark, vice president for economic development at Alfred State and executive director of the Allegany County Industrial Development Agency. 

The BDCC is a prototype that will develop and commercialize the Hot Water Extraction (HWE) process that produces valuable chemical assets from wood, energy crops, and agricultural residuals. Through this technology, approximately 25 percent of the biomass is converted into value-added products such as advanced fuels and bio-based chemicals for plastics. The remaining 75 percent produces modified wood chips that have improved qualities for paper products, fuel pellets, and particleboard used in furnishings and construction. 

Alfred State’s 18,000-square-foot biorefinery center is intended to spur additional investment, including business start-ups and full-scale biorefineries. Alfred State, the State University of New York (SUNY), universities from other ARC states, and private-sector bioenergy and biochemical companies will benefit from the research facility. 

“This project has been in the works for about five years, but recent advances in funding have spurred our progress,” stated Clark. “We are conducting engineering studies right now regarding process and project costs related to implementation of the center.” 

Through the BDCC, Alfred State will also provide training and technical services to both start-up companies and companies impacted by economic changes as they seek to enter new markets, diversify their manufacturing base, and adapt their workforce. The research facility is a collaboration between Alfred State and Syracuse-based Applied Biorefinery Sciences. 

According to Clark, “The BDCC prototype facility is the first step to launch full-sized commercial plants that can cost about $200 million to build. The effect on a local economy like ours will be tremendous.” 

The award to Alfred State was made through ARC’s POWER (Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization) Initiative. This congressionally funded multi-agency strategy brings federal resources directly to help communities and regions affected by job losses in coal mining, coal power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain industries due to the changing economics of America’s energy production.

          Niedobór kwasu żołądkowego – lekceważony problem i poważne konsekwencje   

.


Odpowiednie wysokie stężenie kwasu solnego w żołądku jest niezbędne do prawidłowego trawienia, które znacząco wpływa na funkcjonowanie całego organizmu.

Niedobór kwasu żołądkowego

W przypadku niedoboru:
  1. Białka nie będą trawione i wchłaniane (mięso, ryby, nabiał, orzechy, rośliny strączkowe), co zwiększa ryzyko osteoporozy, prowadzi do stanów zwyrodnieniowych a źle przetrawione białka system immunologiczny zaczyna traktować jak wroga – co powoduje alergie i astmę.
  2. Żołądek nie będzie prawidłowo opróżniał treści, co będzie powodować refluks przełyku i tzw. zgagę
  3. Zaburzona zostanie absorpcja niektórych pierwiastków i mikroelementów takich jak wapń, magnez, cynk, miedź, żelazo, bor, selen itd. przez co zaburzona zostanie biochemia całego organizmu. Co może w konsekwencji prowadzić do poważnych chorób w tym raka i chorób serca.
  4. Niemożliwa będzie sterylizacja żołądka, przez co zostanie obniżona odporność iwzrasta ryzyko infekcji przewodu pokarmowego w tym chorób jelit, wzdęć i gazów – kwas żołądkowy zabija bakterie i drożdże, które dostają się z pożywieniem. Ale nie tylko, nie zniszczone mikroorganizmy mogą powodować reakcje alergiczne i zapalne w odległych miejscach. Nawet w mózgu – depresja i obniżenie nastroju.
  5. Witamina B12 nie będzie przyswajana. Mniej niż 1%.
Objawy mogące wskazywać na niedoboru kwasu żołądkowego
  1. Przyspieszone starzenie
  2. Gazy i wzdęcia, zespół jelita wrażliwego
  3. Tendencja do alergii, astma
  4. Refluks żołądkowo-przełykowy
  5. Niedobór żelaza, niedokrwistość
  6. Niedobór witaminy B12
  7. Tendencja do zakażeń grzybiczych i bakteryjnych jelit np.  Candida
Prosty domowy test na niedobór kwasu żołądkowego
Rano na czczo należy wypić ½ szklanki wody z wymieszaną  ½ łyżeczki sody oczyszczonej. Jeśli jest żołądek prawidłowo zakwaszony, roztwór sody wejdzie w reakcje z kwasem żołądkowym, wydzieli się dwutlenek węgla w do 90 sekund powinno się odbić. Jeśli nie, to znaczy że kwas solny ma za wysokie pH i żołądek jest niedokwaszony. W przypadku szczególnie refluksu i zgagi nie należy przyjmowac w żadnym wypadku preparatów, które zobojętniają kwas żołądkowy bo to dodatkowo pogłębia problem, zwalczając jedynie objawy.
Jak zakwasić żołądekSposoby zakwaszania żołądka:
1. Ocet jabłkowy – 15 minut przed posiłkiem wypić szklankę wody z 2 łyżeczkami octu jabłkowego – domowego lub organicznego.
2. Używanie kwasu askorbinowego (witaminy C w proszku) w trakcie posiłków
3. Mikstura ajurwedyjska
1 Cytrynę, 2-3 centymetrowy kawałek imbiru zblendować z ½ łyżeczki soli, najlepiej himalajskiej. Zażywać ½ łyżeczki 15 minut przed posiłkiem.

This is another installment of research into the biochemistry of HIV and Aids by Cal Crilly, an Australian who finds himself fascinated with the intricacies of biology. Crilly analyzes the seemingly unconnected studies that show the biochemical changes that accompany the presence of numerous retroviruses - one of them called HIV - in humans. The mechanism that makes retroviruses appear is hypomethylation, and it is the same mechanism that accompanies pregnancy and inflammation. Those retroviruses are produced in the course of normal biological activity and they are not infectious. There are many different types (ever heard of HIV 'mutating'?). As an aside, we declare pregnant mothers to be "HIV positive" as pregnancy causes the presence of retroviruses in the course of normal biological activity, and those harmless endogenous retroviruses react with what's generally called an "HIV" test. Certain basic nutrients - Selenium, Folate, B12, B6, Choline are the most important - counteract hypomethylation of the cells and thereby calm the production of human endogenous retroviruses. The toxic Aids drug AZT causes hypermethylation but it is so destructive of normal cell processes that most patients die. The 'life prolonging' effect of HAART, the drug cocktail that is prescribed to Aids patients today is due to a sharp decrease in the dosage of deadly AZT in the cocktail. Cal demonstrates those facts and more with reference to studies you can find as well, if you're interested in the details. Meanwhile we continue to treat immune compromised people with drugs that further compromise the immune system and - in many cases - kill the patient. When is medicine going to start treating those people by insisting on better eating and supplementation supplying the correct nutrients? How long will it take until the toxic drugs are phased out in favor of real prevention?...

The HIV-Aids Titanic hits its own iceberg Rethinking AIDS Day is the 23rd of April. Just one day after Earth Day, celebrated on 22 April to promote the need for reexamining our relationship with the environment, Rethinking AIDS Day prompts us to critically examine the widely held idea that the immune weakness we see in AIDS is caused by an infective virus. According to HEAL, "Rethinking AIDS Day (RAD) is April 23rd to remember (not celebrate) the anniversary of the infamous Gallo/Heckler news conference announcing the 'probable' cause of AIDS had been discovered. By the time the science was published and found wanting, it was too late." RethinkingAIDS has a call to action which goes into more detail about that botched announcement of "the cause" of AIDS: At an international press conference on April 23, 1984, Dr. Robert Gallo, a federally funded cancer researcher, announced that he had discovered "the probable cause of AIDS," a new virus which would later be given the name HIV. The world media accepted the discovery of HIV as the cause of AIDS as a matter of fact although no proof was presented that day or anytime thereafter. Now, twenty four years and $500 billion later, there is still no scientific evidence that Gallo ever isolated HIV from any of the AIDS patients he had studied, and there is still no published paper from any other scientist anywhere in the world demonstrating the direct purification of HIV from any human being. They also have an evolving page of initiatives: List of Events. Wearing a black ribbon (instead of the red one) is one of the ideas of how you can make that day your own. Anyone with a computer, an internet connection and some basic skills of finding information can confirm for themselves that the theory that tells us that HIV=AIDS=ILLNESS AND DEATH is full of holes. A number of articles on this site point out such holes, among them: HIV-Aids: A Tragic Error Why I Quit HIV - Is AIDS Myth Falling Apart? Alternatives to AZT in Aids Patients World AIDS Day 2004 - What happened to Koch's Postulates? HIV Test Bogus - Based on Circular Reasoning Seeing a great number of holes in the official theory, the question arises: What really does cause AIDS? Dr Harold Foster answers that question from the viewpoint of epidemiological geology, saying that those with certain mineral deficiencies - especially of selenium - are at risk. The book What Really Causes AIDS? is a free download from his site. There is more information on nutrient deficiencies and aberrated biochemical pathways as a possible cause of AIDS in Glutathione Peroxidase - Selenium, Aminoacids Overcome AIDS. Beldeu Singh, a Malaysian researcher and writer, argues that AIDS is really a consequence of our lifestyle. Nothing to do with a virus, as much as the medical establishment wishes to promote that cause. The dogma that HIV causes Aids which in turn causes death is like the Titanic and it going to sink just like the ship after it hit the iceberg. The real culprit, says Singh, is our infatuation with drugs, medical and non, but especially those based on the benzene molecule. Our use of chemicals to treat both emotional and physical problems is to blame. Unfortunately, this use of chemicals is sustained and promoted by a multi-billion dollar industry that has the ear of health authorities world wide. In his article, Singh illustrates the mechanism that is behind this common immune weakness....

I have said for some years that AIDS has little to do with science and medicine because it is fundamentally a political and sociological phenomenon. Dr. David Rasnick, biochemist and Aids critic. What is the lesson we should be learning from President Mbeki of South Africa? Perhaps Mbeki is the only head of state and indeed the only prominent politician to think that Aids should be discussed, not dogmatically imposed. In 2000, Mbeki called a conference where critics and mainstream scientists could have done the discussing. Unfortunately, contrary views about Aids are just about the last thing a highly paid medical researcher wants to hear. Eight years later, we are still no closer to really understanding Aids than we were back then. So what did we miss? South African President Thabo Mbeki - Image credit: AFP Could it be that AIDS is something completely different from what medical science tells us? Officially, Aids is a world wide epidemic caused by a sexually transmitted virus that happens to preferentially infect certain groups of people and not others. The 'infection' leads, if untreated, to almost certain death. In consequence, it is important that people abstain from sex or use condoms as a 'protection'. It is also important that everyone get a test to ascertain whether or not they have been infected - a positive test is more likely if you happen to be a member of a so-called 'risk group'. Medical science says it's doing what it can but after more than two decades has found neither a vaccine nor a cure. For the moment all that is available are drugs that can 'extend life span' by wrestling down the deadly virus. Critics say that none of this is true. They charge that - the HIV virus was never clearly isolated. Neither Gallo nor anyone else has published a paper in the scientific literature to show the virus and how it was found. - since there is no standard (no virus), any test for 'HIV antibodies' cannot be not a valid test to establish infection. - AIDS is defined as each one of a number of previously known illnesses, in the presence of HIV. Circular reasoning really, if we do not know the virus. - No viable mechanism has been proposed for how exactly the virus hurts the immune system. HIV is said to be 'different' from all other known viral agents associated with illness. - Virology says once you have developed antibodies, you are immune. The antibodies indicate you have overcome the infection and are now protected. Only in the case of AIDS apparently, when you have antibodies, that is taken as a sign of infection to be treated with ineffective but nevertheless toxic drugs. - The drugs used to 'treat' Aids are so highly toxic they often are the cause of death of the patient. Liver failure has become a major cause of death of people under anti-viral therapy. - Those who refuse drug treatments after testing 'positive' survive much longer without developing any of those 'aids defining' diseases, especially if they switch to better nutrition and generally a healthy lifestyle. Certainly things do not add up, yet there is a complete block to discussing alternative strategies for understanding and overcoming Aids. It's drugs and more drugs, especially for the Africans said to suffer from the syndrome, but there is no real viral agent, and no proper treatment. So coming back to David Rasnick's view that "AIDS has little to do with science and medicine because it is fundamentally a political and sociological phenomenon", perhaps we should really look into the political and sociological side of Aids. In a recent email discussion, There was a reply from Dan to David Rasnick's characterization of Aids. Dan says: Absolutely agree. This g*#*!*d "science" debate can go on for years to come. The scientists for whom it threatens their life's work aren't going let go of it. It's an incredible paradigm shift that I wonder if medical science as we know it will survive intact. I doubt it. People don't want to let go of "AIDS". It's part of our lives. It fulfills many, many societal needs. As a gay man, I can tell you that gay men will be the last to let go of this, and they'll be kicking and screaming all the way. It's not because they're such fans of "science". It's because of the many needs it fulfills. "AIDS" is a sociological phenomenon. Then Michael Ellner said I having been saying AIDS is a sociopolitical and economic phenomenon for decades -- I have also been saying that the late Casper Schmidt, MD was on to something and we would be far more effective if we factor in the Group Fantasy and the mass self-hypnosis... Michael also attached his article about THE MBEKI CHALLENGE saying "perhaps the following will be helpful". President Mbeki's experience has shown that scientific discussion of the causes of Aids is difficult if not impossible. Michael Ellner has summed up the situation of dogma versus debate that prevented any discussion back in 2000. He also describes Aids and the approach our symptom oriented medicine takes, the false perception of a virulent germ and the myth that has been spun around these ingredients. His article is not new but remains an important document for anyone trying to unravel the mysteries of Aids. Michael was so good to allow re-posting of the article, which was originally published in CONTINUUM magazine, vol 6 no 11. Here it is......

          Evaluation of Acute and 8-Week Sub-chronic Toxicities of Aromatic water of Rheum Ribes in Rats   

In Iranian folk medicine, especially in west of the country, the aromatic water of Rheum ribes has been used for several purposes such as fever reduction.  Despite the widespread use of this plant as food or as a medicinal plant, there is still lack of information on its toxicity profile.                                                               

In the present study we aimed to evaluate the acute and sub chronic toxicities of aromatic water of R. ribes in Wistar rat. In the acute toxicity study, single doses of aromatic water were administered orally, and the rats were then monitored for 14 days. In the subchronic toxicity study, aromatic water was administered to rats for 60 days. Results of acute toxicity study indicated that the LD50 of R. ribes aromatic water is higher than 5000 mg/kg. Biochemical analysis showed aromatic water of R. ribes increased significantly Creatine Phospho Kinase (CPK) and Lactate De-Hydrogenase (LDH) levels. Moreover some significant abnormality of heart organ such as coagulated necrosis of cardiac muscle cells associated with hemorrhage, hypertrophy and infiltration of inflammatory cells were observed. Based on the result of this study, no observed adverse effect level (NOAEL) of aromatic water from R. ribes considered to be 250 mg/kg/day for male rats and 500 mg/kg/day for female rats.

          An apology for communism: The invisible committee’s Now   

From Autonomies

I am large, I contain multitudes.

Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

The real problem is not that of restoring a Marxist or Leninist or Maoist truth, nor that of remaking an organisation with the same methods and therefore the same errors as the one that failed in too many parts of the world. The half century that has passed since the death of Lenin obliges us, on pain of death, to rethink reality, not texts; society, not formulae; to produce truth, not to contend over hereditary protocols. It is a difficult task that for a number of years has demanded fierce study and pitiless rigour. Nor is it just a task of consciousness. It is a vital task, in which to invent a different relationship between our present, the site of our pain and our joy, and the exalted or terrifying images of the future and the past.

Franco Fortini

What follows is a fourth and final exercise in the sharing of ideas, of visions (for the first, click here, the second, here, and the third, here). The most recent essay by the invisible committee, Now, continues a reflection-intervention that began with The Coming Insurrection and To Our Friends, and offers a powerful critique of contemporary politics, along with a defense of “autonomy”. What is proposed here then is again a partial translation, summary and critical commentary on their reading of communism.

Everywhere, we are proposed solutions

“Cities in transition, social and solidarity economies, a 6th Republic, alternative municipalism, basic universal income, the film Tomorrow, migrations into space, a thousand new prisons, expelling all foreigners from the planet, man-machine fusions – whether they be engineers, managers, activists, politicians, ecologists, actors or simple hucksters, all of those who pretend to offer solutions to the present disaster do but one thing: they impose upon us their definition of the problem, in the hope of having us forget that they are themselves clearly part of the problem. As one friend stated: ‘The solution to the problem that you see in life is a way of living that makes the problem disappear.'” (123-4)*

The invisible committee offers us no political program, no solution for sale. They speak from their singular experience, their encounters, their successes and failures. From this, they “draw an evidently partisan perception of the world, which conversation between friends refines”. (124) It is then for each one of us, as readers of Maintenant/Now, to draw the consequences. And it is with this in the background that one may speak of a defence of communism.

The question of communism remains at the heart of our epoch, if for no other reason than that the reign of its opposite, the economy, has never been so complete. (124)

“One can of course elude the question of communism. One can accustom oneself to stepping over the homeless or the migrants on the street each morning on the way to the office. One can follow in real time time the melting of the polar icecaps, the rise of the oceans or frantic migrations, in all directions, of animals and human beings. One can continue to prepare one’s cancer each time one swallows a fork of mashed food. One can say that the recovery, a little authority or eco-feminism will resolve all that. To continue in this way is at the price of repressing in ourselves the sentiment of living in an intrinsically criminal society, and who does not miss the opportunity to remind us that we are a part of this little criminal association. Each time that we enter into contact with it – by the use of anyone of its devices, the consumption of the least of its commodities or the job that we slave on for it -, we make ourselves its accomplices, we contract a little of the vice that grounds it: that of exploiting, pillaging, exhausting the very conditions of all terrestrial existence. We have the choice but between two crimes: that of participating or that of deserting with the aim of killing it. The hunt for the criminal, the thirst for punishment and judgement is frenzied in our time only to the extent of procuring for the spectator, for an instant, a surrogate of innocence. But as the relief is of short duration, it is necessary to continually begin anew to blame, to punish, to accuse – so as to clear oneself of responsibility.” (124-5)

If to speak of communism sounds grossly anachronistic in our times, it is because it was, in the 20th century, misconceived as a social doctrine, which is to say, as a response to a strictly human concern. (127)

“Despite that, it has never ceased to inform the world. If it continues to haunt it, it is because it does not proceed from any ideological fixation, but from a fundamental, immemorial, lived experience: that of community, which revokes so many economic axioms, as well as beautiful constructions of civilisation. There is never community as an entity, but only as an experience. It is that of the continuity with beings and with the world. In love, friendship, we have the experience of this continuity.” (127)

There is a lived experience of communism in moments of giving, sharing, friendship; a singular experience of creative interaction with others and the world. It is only by divorcing the human being from this experience that communism could come to be imagined as an emaciated, abstract fraternalism, an empty internationlism, to be appropriated and corrupted by political movements, parties and States. But what is communism if not friendship, equality among friends?

“In taking the human subject in isolation from her/his world, in detaching mortals from all that lives around them, modernity could not but give birth to a communism exterminator of a socialism. And this socialism could not encounter peasants, nomads and “savages” except as obstacles to be swept away, like an annoying residue at the bottom of national accounting. They could not even see what communism they were the bearers of. If modern “communism” was able to imagine itself as universal fraternity, as realised equality, it was by cavalierly extrapolating the lived fact of fraternity in struggle from friendship. For what is friendship if not the equality between friends?” (128-9)

“Without the experience, even occasional, of communism, we die, we shrivel up, we becomes cynics, hard, barren. Life is this phantom-city peopled by smiling mannequins, and that works. Our need for community is so pressing that after having ravaged all existing ties, capitalism can only run on the promise of “community”. What are the social networks, dating applications, if not this promise perpetually disappointed? What are all of the fashions, the technologies of communication, all the love songs, except a way of maintaining the dream of a continuity between beings where, in the end, all contact is stolen away? This promise of frustrated community opportunely redoubles the need for it. It is rendered even hysterical, and turns ever faster the great cash machine of those who exploit it. To maintain the poverty and have it show itself in one possible outcome, this is the great strength of capitalism.” (129)

The capitalist economy rests upon two complicit fictions, that of “society” and of the “individual”, and all that they carry with them, politically, morally, existentially. And even those opposed to it, for example, anarchists and marxists, often do little more than play ping-pong around this couple, “without worrying themselves that this false antinomy was fashioned by economic thought.” (131)

“To rebel against society in the name of the individual or against individualism in the name of socialism, is to condemn oneself in advance. The individual and society have not ceased, for a good three centuries, to affirm themselves at the expense of the other, and it is this well established and oscillating apparatus that, from year to year, keeps the lovely spools called “the economy” turning. Contrary to what the economy wants us to see, what there is in life are not individuals endowed with all kinds of properties that they may use or separate themselves from. What there is in life are attachments, assemblages, of situated beings who move in a whole ensemble of ties. In making its own the liberal fiction of the individual, modern ” communism” could not but confound property and attachment, and carry with itself the devastation even to where it thought it was struggling against private property and constructing socialism. … It was only on the basis of such a confusion that one could imagine that “Humanity” could exist, that is all women and men similarly torn away from what weaves their specific existence, and phantasmagorically reunited in an great untraceable machine. In massacring all of the attachments that make up the very texture of worlds, under the pretext of abolishing the private ownership of the means of production, modern “communism” effectively made a clean slate – of everything. This is then what occurs to those who practice economics, even in criticising it. ‘One had not to criticise the economy, one had to get out of it!’, Lyotard would have said. Communism is not a ‘superior economic organisation of society’, but the destitution of the economy.” (131-3)

What appears under the spectacle economy from the outside as an “indivdual” is in truth a complex of heterogeneous forces, an aggregate of fragments capable and susceptible to agencies. We are each, many lives, many faces, and what ties we create and are created are not between separate entities, but between and within the confluence of fragmentary flows.

“We are not beautiful, complete egos, well unified Selves; we are composed of fragments, we swarm with minor lives. … Every tie between beings goes from a fragment of being to a fragment of being, from a fragment of world to a fragment of world. It establishes itself below and beyond the level of the individual. It immediately effects [“agence”] between them portions of beings that suddenly discover themselves on an equal footing, experience themselves as continuous. This continuity between fragments is what is felt as “community”, an assemblage. It is what we experience in every true encounter. Every encounter cuts a part of us away, where are indistinctly mixed elements of the world, of the other and of ourselves. Love does not put individuals into relationship with each other; it rather cuts away a part in each, as if they were suddenly traversed by a special plane of reality, where they find themselves walking together in the world. To love is never to be together, but to become together. If to love did not unmake the fictitious unity of being, the “other” would be incapable of making us suffer so. If in love a part of the other was not to be found as a part of us, we would not have to mourn when the hour of separation comes. If there were nothing but relations between beings, no one would understand themselves. Everything would move along with misunderstanding. There is neither subject nor object of love, there is an experience of love.” (138)

“The fragments which constitute us, the forces that inhabit us, the assemblages where we enter have no reason to compose a harmonious whole, a fluid ensemble, a mobile articulation. The banal experience of life, of our days, is rather that of a succession of encounters which gradually unmake us, fragment us, progressively steal away from us all certain foundations. If communism has to do with the fact of organising ourselves collectively, materially, politically, it is to the exact degree that it signifies also organising ourselves singularly, existentially, sensibly. Or, one must accept falling back into politics or the economy. If communism has an end, it is the great well-being of forms of life. The great well-being is gained, in contact with life, through the patient articulation of the disjointed members of our being. One can very well live one’s entire life without experiencing anything, by being careful not to feel or think. Existence is thus brought to a slow movement of degradation. It uses and damages, instead of giving form. Relations, past the miracle of the encounter, cannot but go from injury to injury towards their consummation. Conversely, s/he who refuses to live next to oneself, who accepts to experience, life gives them progressively form. S/he becomes in the full sense of the term a form of life.” (138-9)

“Poles apart from this are the inherited methods of activist construction, so fatiguing, so destructive, when they wanted to build so much. Communism is played out not in the renunciation of self, but in attention to the simplest gesture. It is a question of the plane of perception and thus in the way things are done. It is a practical question. What the perception of entities – individual or collective – bars our access to, is the plane where things really happen, the plane where collective potentialities are made and unmade, reinforce or unravel themselves. It is on this plane and only there that the real, including the politically real, becomes readable and makes sense. To live communism, is not to work to make exist the entity to which one adheres, but to deploy and deepen an ensemble of ties, which is to say to sometimes cut them. What is essential takes place at the level of the very small. For the communist, the world of important facts extends beyond sight. It is the whole alternative between the individual and the collective that perception in terms of ties revokes positively. An ‘I’ that, in a given situation, rings true can be a “we” of exceptional potential. Equally, the happiness proper to every Commune refers to a plenitude of singularities, to a certain quality of ties, to the radiance at its heart of each fragment of the world – the end of entities, of their weight, the end of individual and collective confinements, the end of the reign of narcissism. ‘The only and unique progress, wrote the poet Franco Fortini, consists and will consist of reaching a higher place, visible, seeing, where it will be possible to promote the potentialities and the qualities of each singular existence.’ What is to be deserted is not ‘society’ nor ‘individual life’, but the couple that they form together. We must learn how to move on another plane.” (139-40)

[Gloss: Let us imagine human existence in its four dimensions of space and time. What any State endeavours to do is to render its subjects transparent. For this, it must map them. The cartographer’s question is then what “geographical” projection to employ. The human must be, so to speak, flattened out. But as with any such projection, the mapping is eminently political, with those territories that are deemed fundamental for control being given prominence. What contemporary capitalism accomplishes, to a degree unheard of, by means of technological apparatuses of surveillance, control and seduction, is to fragment the subject into a multiplicity of measurable domains, each the object of political and economic investment. Without by any means exhausting the map, we are biochemical measures of cholesterol, sugar, heartbeat; corporal measures of size and shape, volume and weight; emotional and cognitive measures of stability and intelligence; psychological, social and cultural measures of functionality, productivity, ethnicity; political measures of identification and participation, and so on. In each instance, each field is observed, studied, recorded, and always restrained and seduced. The micro-administration of capital is totalitarian in its ambition and it is this potentially inexhaustible reality that capitalism as a system of social relations is able to mould and exploit.

What opposition there can be to capitalism must begin here. And paradoxically, in so fragmenting the human subject, what capitalism accomplishes is the simultaneous revelation of the illusion of a sovereign subjectivity. As fragmentation is intensified for ever greater control, cracks appear, we leak through the fissures, and subjectivities encounter other subjective singularities, generating experiences that defy control.

Communism in some sense can be said to be the ethical acknowledgement and shaping of life within the flux of movements of capital. That is, it shows up a truth, the truth that we are always “between” realities, in the thresholds of corporal, affective and cognitive shifts. Capitalism’s capacity to exploit these movements depends upon self-interested, temporary territorialisations, on perpetuating therefore the illusion that all is stable, and that it is in stability where prosperous well-being is to be found. What radical anti-capitalism must strive towards is challenging capitalist territorialisations, thereby creating spaces and times for potential collective creativity beyond capital, within the multiple fluxes that exist between ever changing subjectivities.]

What capitalism cannot tolerate is the freedom of feeling, seeing, understanding, none of which are politically indifferent, nor equitably shared among us. We are obliged to remain at the surface of experience, of life, in contemporary social relations; even led to fear the risks of engagement, commitment, “loss of control” (when we already control very little). “If the whole social circus continues still, it is because each wears themselves out keeping their head above water, when instead, what would be necessary is to embrace the fall until we touch something solid”. (146)

In struggle, in true collective life where we open ourselves up to create together, our feelings and thoughts change profoundly. However banal this may sound – and it only sounds as such because language has itself become so banal, so empty – we are no longer the same subjects, we become other than what we were before we lived such experiences of shared creativity. We come back to Fortini’s vision, and we can begin to speak of communism as a way of seeing that carries with it a way of being in the world that breaks with the power of economy.

“There is no sense in sharing things if one does not begin by communising the aptitude to see. Without that, to live communism is similar to a wild dance in absolute darkness: we crash, we injure, we drape the soul and body in blues, without even wanting to and without even knowing precisely whom we should hold something against. To add the capacity to see to everyone in all domains, to compose new perceptions and to refine them to infinity, that is the central object of all communist development, the growth of immediate potential that it determines. Those who wish to see nothing cannot but produce collective disasters. One has to make oneself see [clairvoyant, a visionary], for oneself as much as for others.” (148)

“Because it is a matter … of life itself, the true communist question is not ‘how to produce?’, but ‘how to live?’. Communism is the centrality of the old ethical question, that which historical socialism held to be ‘metaphysical’, ‘premature’ or ‘petite-bourgeois’, and not that of labour. It is general de-totalisation, and not the socialisation of everything.” (150)

“For us, communism is not a goal. There is no ‘transition’ towards it. It is entirely transition: it is on the way. The different ways of inhabiting the world will never cease to cross each other, to crash into each other and, at times, to combat each other. Everything will always have to be taken up again.” (151)

By way of conclusion, with the words of the poet Franco Fortini …

“Communism is the material process that aims to make the materiality of so-called spiritual things both sensible and intellectual. To the point of being able to read in the book of our own body everything that men did and were under the sovereignty of time; and to interpret in it the traces of the passage of the human species over an earth on which it will leave no trace.”

Franco Fortini, “Che cos’è il comunismo”

L’Internazionale di Franco Fortini (Versione del Coro Ingrato) …

Noi siamo gli ultimi del mondo.
Ma questo mondo non ci avrà.
Noi lo distruggeremo a fondo.
Spezzeremo la società.
Nelle fabbriche il capitale
come macchine ci usò.
Nelle scuole la morale
di chi comanda ci insegnò.

Questo pugno che sale
questo canto che va
è l’Internazionale
un’altra umanità.
Questa lotta che uguale
l’uomo all’uomo farà,
è l’Internazionale.
Fu vinta e vincerà.

Noi siamo gli ultimi di un tempo
che nel suo male sparirà.
Qui l’avvenire è già presente
chi ha compagni non morirà.
Al profitto e al suo volere
tutto l’uomo si tradì,
ma la Comune avrà il potere.
Dov’era il no faremo il sì.

Questo pugno che sale…

E tra di noi divideremo
lavoro, amore, libertà.
E insieme ci riprenderemo
la parola e la verità.
Guarda in viso, tienili a memoria
chi ci uccise, chi mentì.
Compagni, porta la tua storia
alla certezza che ci unì.

Questo pugno che sale…

Noi non vogliam sperare niente.
il nostro sogno è la realtà.
Da continente a continente
questa terra ci basterà.
Classi e secoli ci han straziato
fra chi sfruttava e chi servì:
compagno, esci dal passato
verso il compagno che ne uscì.

Questo pugno che sale…

               "Alhamdulillah" : Health Benefits of Saying "Alhumdulillah"    





    There are many examples in the Qur'an and Hadith of the virtues of a positive mental attitude, perseverance and optimism in the face of adversity. However, did you know that patience and a positive outlook on life are two of the greatest healing tools that you can use?
    The Qur'an (2:155) says, "Give glad tidings to those who exercise patience when struck with adversity and say, 'Indeed, we belong to Allah,(our one and only god), and to Him is our return.' Such ones receive [the] blessings and mercy of their Lord, and such are the guided ones." According to the findings of modern science, it appears that this mercy may often come in the form of improved health.
    Bernard Jensen says, in his book The Science and Practice of Iridology, "The doctor of the new day will recognize that a man's most important workshop is not the physical body, but the mind that controls it." Dr. Ted M. Morter confirms this in his book, Your Health... Your Choice, when he says that "negative thoughts are the number one acid producer in the body (and high body acidity levels are a major cause of disease) because your body reacts to negative mental and emotional stress brought about by thought the same way it reacts to 'real' threats of physical harm."
    In fact, hospital studies show that, of all the patients who consult outpatient clinical facilities in the United States, an astounding seventy percent are found to have no organic basis for their complaint. That figure is amazingly high. However, although medically these patients are not found to have an obvious organic source for their complaints, there actually is a physical basis for this phenomenon. Since Freud popularized the idea of psychoanalysis, people have often focused exclusively on the mental realm to solve certain problems, forgetting that we cannot separate the physical and mental realms. The mind is in the brain, and the brain is an organ. Like all other organs, it feeds from the same pool of nutrients that other body organs feed from and is susceptible to all of the same problems. Ultimately, the brain is just a part of our body like all of the other parts and is completely dependent on the body. It requires sugar to develop energy unlike other tissues that can develop it from potassium and fats. Consequently, it is the first organ to suffer from low blood sugar and it reacts most severely. Freud himself said that psychoanalysis was not suitable for treating diseases such as schizophrenia, and he postulated that their causes eventually would be found to be biochemical.
    If we keep in mind that the brain is an organ and that it works in harmony with the other organs and feeds from the same bloodstream, we can understand how various mental events can affect us physically. For example, simply using our brains to think and study burns up nutrients in our system, particularly phosphorus. Heavily exercising the brain can cause us to suffer from a phosphorus deficiency. And we find that the reverse is also true in this relationship. People who have high intellectual capacity usually have high levels of phosphorus in their system.
    There is much wisdom in the Prophet's (peace & blessings be upon him) statement (narrated by Abu Huraira), "The strong [person] is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong [person] is the one who controls himself while in anger." In fact, staying patient and calm is key to physical strength.
    Phosphorus is not the only nutrient that can be depleted by mental stress and a lack of spiritual calm. If the thyroid gland, the primary organ to handle our emotions, works overtime, we can suffer from a deficiency in iodine. Stress from a demanding job, a divorce or relocating can cause a loss of potassium and sodium in the body because it effects the adrenal glands creating more of a need for these minerals.
    Even hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) can be caused by excitement. The prophet (SAW) recommended our taking the more moderate path in life; however, we often engage in or expose ourselves to intense excitement by yelling, excessively watching television, and going to the mall, movies, parties, amusement parks, etc. When we see something exciting, our adrenal cortex is stimulated and there is an increase in our blood sugar. This, in turn, stimulates the pancreas to secrete insulin into the blood to lower the sugar level, causing us to then feel tired or weak.
    It produces calm and health to practice saying, "Alhumdulillah" for what we have and for what we are faced with. We should try to keep our home and work environments peaceful and as free from stress as possible. One way we can counteract the effects of stress are to simply be aware of the stress we are encountering, and to consume sufficient nutrients and supplements such as herbs.
    For instance, if a person is up late praying or reading Qur'an during Ramadan, they can eat phosphorus rich foods and those that will help them maintain their phosphorus intake. If a person is moving, traveling or making Hajj or Umra, they may want to increase their intake of foods high in potassium and sodium as well as vitamin B complex.
    If we completely ignore the relationship between mental and physical health, we are missing an important detail in the picture of personal health. And, as in most health problems, practicing prevention is superior to finding a cure. Therefore, the best manner to avoid having negative attitudes and emotions control our bodies is simply to practice the wisdoms that we have been given throughout the Qur'an and Hadith. We should say, "Alhumdullilah" for what we have; "Insha'Allah" for what we intend; and, "Subhana' Allah" when we see something exciting or amazing. We should remember to say, Astaghfir'Allah" when we lose our tempers or become weak, and most importantly, "Allahu Akbar" when we are faced with the challenges of life. These five phrases, said regularly, are like taking a multi-vitamin for holistic health.

    Du'a  at first sight of Kaa'ba
     
     Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammed and upon all his Family and Companions.

    It is likable to supplicate Allah asking goodness of this world and the Hereafter at the time of looking at Ka'bah. One may also raise his hands for making Du'a. There is no sound Hadith proves any special Du'a at this place. So, one should ask Allah for goodness in this life and in the next life, the most important is forgiveness and safety in both lives. A Muslim should memorize the Prophetic supplications that contain all kinds of virtues to supplicate with them in such excellent places. For example, one may make this Du'a
    اللهم إني أسألك العفو والعافية ('O Allah, I ask you for pardon and well-being'). Imam Ibn Majah reported from Anas that a person came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) and said, "O Messenger of Allah! Which Du'a is more excellent?' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: 'Ask your Lord for pardon and well-being in this life and the next'. He came to him another day and asked the same question. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) answered the same. He came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) third day and asked him the same. The answer was the same and then the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "if you have been granted the well-being in this world and Hereafter as well, you will be successful" . [The Hadith is Hasan].
    It is reported in Sahih Muslim that if someone would embrace Islam the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) would teach him the prayer and then order him to supplicate with these words "
    اللهم اغفرلي وارحمني واهدني وعافني وارزقني" ('O Allah! Forgive me, have Mercy upon me, guide me, provide me well being and grant me sustenance" . [Sahih Muslim]
    Know that there is no sound Hadith proving that supplications are responded at the time of sighting al-Ka'bah. The Hadith saying so are weak. Even though, such places are most likely to be where supplications are answered. So, one should supplicate Allah as much as possible and should insist on asking Allah, believing that He will respond and He is All-Hearer and Ever-Near.

    Noi siamo gli ultimi del mondo.
    Ma questo mondo non ci avrà.
    Noi lo distruggeremo a fondo.
    Spezzeremo la società.
    Nelle fabbriche il capitale
    come macchine ci usò.
    Nelle scuole la morale
    di chi comanda ci insegnò.

    Questo pugno che sale
    questo canto che va
    è l’Internazionale
    un’altra umanità.
    Questa lotta che uguale
    l’uomo all’uomo farà,
    è l’Internazionale.
    Fu vinta e vincerà.

    Noi siamo gli ultimi di un tempo
    che nel suo male sparirà.
    Qui l’avvenire è già presente
    chi ha compagni non morirà.
    Al profitto e al suo volere
    tutto l’uomo si tradì,
    ma la Comune avrà il potere.
    Dov’era il no faremo il sì.

    Questo pugno che sale…

    E tra di noi divideremo
    lavoro, amore, libertà.
    E insieme ci riprenderemo
    la parola e la verità.
    Guarda in viso, tienili a memoria
    chi ci uccise, chi mentì.
    Compagni, porta la tua storia
    alla certezza che ci unì.

    Questo pugno che sale…

    Noi non vogliam sperare niente.
    il nostro sogno è la realtà.
    Da continente a continente
    questa terra ci basterà.
    Classi e secoli ci han straziato
    fra chi sfruttava e chi servì:
    compagno, esci dal passato
    verso il compagno che ne uscì.

    Questo pugno che sale…

                Will Happer Rebrands George C. Marshall Institute As CO2 Coalition   

      The George C. Marshall Institute (GMI) was a leader in climate denial from 1990 onward, but disbanded in 2015. Its chairman Will Happer and CEO WIlliam O'Keefe rebranded its climate denial effort as the CO2 Coalition, more accurately a CoalOILition.

      Of its 18 people, 15 signed Happer's “300 scientists” (sic) letter to help Lamar Smith(R-TX) waste more taxpayer money harassing NOAA. Early analysis of the signers list makes it look even sillier than Happer's 2009 petition to the American Physical Society, as will be seen in a forthcoming detailed post. Oil and coal industry people are well-represented.


      Inspired by DeSmog UK's recent exposure of Patrick Moore's work for European coal, this post summarizes known connections of those involved in the CO2 CoalOILition. People were tagged Coal and/or OIL, explained below.1  For example, of 18, five worked directly for Exxon, Shell or the American Petroleum Institute.  Also, 14 have been involved with Heartland ICCC meetings.

      The first table is a dense summary, the second gives the backup details. 
      Readers might evaluate climate-related efforts from such a group as akin to health recommendations from Big Tobacco.

      TPPF2014 conference speakers included Hartnett-White (organizer), Mills, Steward, Spencer.
      TPPF2015 speakers included Happer, Lindzen, Mills, Moore, Steward, and Lamar Smith. One may wonder if they talked.
      Robert Murray, CEO of Murray Energy (coal), gave the opening keynote.

      1 People were tagged with C or O if at some time or other, not necessarily currently, and not necessarily paid personally, they:

      • were long-time fossil employees.  For example, of 18 people, 3 worked for ExxonMobil, 1 for Shell.
      • got paid directly by fossil companies or their associations for consulting, testimony, other work or their think tank business.
      • got paid indirectly through fossil-funded groups, either via employment or other serious association, at least expenses likely. For example, Heartland ICCC speakers are counted but merely being a “Heartland expert” (sic) does not.
      • were fossil-funded think tank Trustees/Board members, so would know funding, although perhaps not paid.

      Think tank finances are purposefully murky. Many ways exist to funnel money to advocates, such as speaking fees or book purchases. Readers can imagine the funding effects of any associated with these think tanks of saying “I accept mainstream science, we must reduce fossil burning.”

      Crescendo to Climategate Cacophony pp.93-95 shows GMI, Heartland, and Manhattan. They (and TPPF) have had either tobacco connections (GMI, via Frederick Seitz) or direct funding (the rest), Fakery2 p.39. Of course, tobacco companies stay in business only by addicting people during adolescent brain development, knowing many will die. Some think tanks help and get paid for it.
      For TPPF see
       Truth Tobacco Industry Documents, as for example Philip Morris (1998):

      “We have had a close relationship with them for many years.  Per Neal's operation, they have done a lot of work on issues that we deem important.  We are a longtime financial supporter.”

      Involvement level is estimated as in Crescendo, p.96 and other tables there:
      5  Organizers of petitions, conferences, projects; CEO/Chairman of Board, WSJ OpEd.
      4  Active in small workshop, keynote speaker, chapter author; Board member, active worker, WSJ letter.

      2  Attend conference, give one talk for Roundtable, sign small letter/petition; temporary connection.

                Hamida Pharma Company Profile   
      HAMIDA Pharma Incorporated, located in Lake Forest, California in the United States, is a rapidly expanding research-based company that manufactures innovative, condition-specific phyto-medicines, and a US GMP certified manufacturer.



      We began operations in 1999 and are quickly becoming recognized as a world leader in scientific herbal extraction technologies.  

      Currently, we manufacture over forty highly effective, fast-acting natural products.  Our team of staff scientists integrates cutting edge technology with traditional botanical therapeutics to provide the healthcare market with products that stand apart from the competition.  

      Our mission is to pioneer and develop natural products that are safe, effective, and extremely fast-acting. 

      A GLOBAL COMPANY
      Since its inception, Hamida Pharma has quickly established itself as a true global company, having entered into key partnerships with several international companies. As a result, our formulations are now marketed in nearly forty countries.


      Hamida's partners include pharmaceutical companies, nutritional supplement manufacturers, multi-level marketing companies, direct mail/mail order companies and distributors, wholesalers or importers of health related products.

      INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS
       

      At present, the majority of Hamida Pharma's sales come from the international marketplaceHamida Pharma supplies its products overseas by entering into private-branding, licensing or distribution agreements with companies in the pharmaceutical or nutritional supplement industries.

      Our swift expansion in the international arena has been truly astounding.   Our growth in the international marketplace has been rapid because the demand for effective, fast acting, and safe natural medicines is a worldwide issue.



      Consumers in almost every single country are seeking products that will provide an alternative to prescription medication and the host of unwanted side effects they generate.  So far, the response from the international community has been truly remarkable. 

      DOMESTIC BUSINESS

      In the United States, many of our products are sold through distributors directly to physicians.  Doctors offer our products to their patients because they firmly believe in the efficacy of our formulations.  They have first hand experience in observing the positive results our products can generate in a very short period of time, sometimes while the patient is still in the office!

      OUR FOUNDER

      In 1987, Heba Hamida, Ph.D., N.M.D. began research and development on a new manufacturing process that would eventually lead to the creation of the existing company.

      Prior to 1987, Dr. Hamida spent many years as an independent researcher for the pharmaceutical industry.  Even though he saw some benefits with modem medicine, he felt that there was a need for effective products that did not have any of the harmful side effects of prescription drugs.


      Dr. Hamida was extremely interested in the benefits of herbal medicine but was not satisfied with the weak formulations being offered to consumers.  He was also troubled by the fact that many natural products were contaminated with toxins, such as heavy metals.

      These problems spurred him to attempt to develop a process that would not only cleanse raw materials of harmful contaminants, but would also increase the potency of the active ingredients.

      After twelve years of dedication and hard work, Dr. Hamida met with success.   His intense research culminated in a cutting edge technology that now produces safer and more effective phytomedicines that are amazingly fast-acting.

      The extensive research and constant testing has resulted in a process we proudly call B.E.E.®

      B.E.E.®TECHNOLOGY

      B.E.E.®  (BioEnhanced Extraction) is not simply an extraction process.   It is a three-step process of purification, isolation/extraction and bio-enhancement using only those active compounds of plants that have been determined to be most beneficial for the body in each formula and possess the highest yield of active ingredients.


      B.E.E. ® is a science-based technology that encompasses the entire manufacturing process from the selection of the plants and various raw materials to the completion of the finished product.


      Most of the steps employed during the B.E.E.® process are performed using our own, company-designed machines.


      Not only is the B.E.E.® process completely innovative and proprietary, but the actual equipment used during most of our manufacturing procedures are as well.B.E.E.® technology differs from standard herbal extraction methods in many ways.   Most modem techniques expose the herbs to high temperatures and pressures that can damage the active ingredients, reducing the potency and overall effectiveness.

      In addition, nearly all companies emplo
      y the use of alcohol or other solvents during their extraction procedures.


      The B.E.E.® process does not employ any of these practices, so our methods more efficiently preserve the active ingredients of the extract while increasing the bio-availability, assimilation, and absorption of the constituents.


      Unquestionably, the most amazing feature of the Hamida Pharma product lines is the fast-acting nature of the formulations.  Due to the techniques employed during the B.E.E.® process, positive results can normally be felt within 20 to 30 minutes after taking a dose.


      Most herbal products have to be taken for extended periods before they produce noticeable effects, if at all.   If you would like more details on the B.E.E.® process, please request our detailed B.E.E.® scientific document. 


      PRODUCTION FACILITY

      As a manufacturer, we are able to customize products to your specifications from start to finish.


      Our production area is equipped with the most modem manufacturing equipment such as fully automatic encapsulating and tableting machines, blister-packaging machines, large scale mixers, grinders and blenders, powder pouching machines, automatic inspection machines and an assembly line style bottling machine that allows us to keep up with the high volume demands for our products.


      Hamida Pharma prides itself on assisting our international partners with new product development.  The B.E.E.® technology allows us to create a vast assortment of customized products that have the potential to target a wide variety of health conditions.


      We also have the necessary skills to manufacture products in a broad variety of delivery systems such as capsules, tablets, powders, teas, lotions, creams, shampoos, and liquids. We have the required equipment to package end products in either blister-packed boxes, plastic or glass bottles or foil pouches.


      We also staff an in-house graphic design department that can produce customized labeling and packaging as well as product inserts and leaflets to fit our individual customer's needs. 

      QUALITY CONTROL

      At Hamida Pharma, quality assurance is our utmost goal. Strict manufacturing procedures have been implemented at every step of the production process in order to monitor and verify quality. 

      GMP Certification

      As a US GMP certified manufacturer, Hamida Pharma complies with current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), a set of regulatory standards based upon the best practices in the industry. GMPs are designed to assure that products are safe, properly manufactured and identified, of the correct strength or potency and are of high quality. 

      Halal Certification


      Hamida Pharma's products have Halal certificate of the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA). Dr. Hamida firmly believes that Halal products of any kind are healthier for all people.


      All of the company's products are formulated without alcohol, gelatin and animal-derived glycerin.  Only veggie caps are used.



      In addition, the products are 100% natural, which means that no synthetic additives or agents of any kind are used in the production of our formulas. 

      RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT


      Our scientific staff spends vast amounts of time in our laboratory researching the biochemistry behind each unique disease.  Our research helps us match the therapeutic actions of plant constituents with the condition we are targeting.


      Currently, the Hamida Pharma product line targets conditions and diseases such as arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, Fibromyalgia, liver disease, urinary incontinence, thyroid disorders, asthma, sexual dysfunction, weight loss, gout, immune system disorders, and many others. 

      Laboratory Testing


      One of the most important divisions of Hamida Pharma is our on-site testing laboratory.  The main focus in our laboratory is to conduct certain tests that will verify the quality, stability and consistency of our products.  Our scientists spend a great deal of time performing HPLC analysis as well as other methods of validation to properly ensure that our products meet our

      strict set of standards.



      Safety is another very important issue to our company, so our team of scientists conducts various tests, such as heavy metal analysis and micro testing to confirm and make certain that our end products meet with Dr. Hamida's distinct approval. 

      Clinical and Experimental Studies


      Hamida Pharma has sponsored several studies on two of our products: - Hypertenol, a high blood pressure product, and Arthritol, an arthritis formula.

      We recently completed a double blind, placebo-controlled trial of Arthritol at the Poznan School of Medicine on people suffering from osteoarthritis.  The results were extremely positive and only verified Dr. Hamida's knowledge about the tremendous efficacy of this formulation.

      One Hypertenol study was conducted at the prestigious Institut de Cardiologe in Montreal, Canada and another study was conducted on 31 people using a Cardiovision machine.  The positive results that we received from Montreal are especially meaningful when you consider that the institute is one of the most recognized in the world for testing and analysis of pharmaceutical medications.


      Toxicity studies on all of our products have also been performed at various institutions. 

      Cardiopril, our cholesterol formula, and Hypertenol, our blood pressure product, have been granted FDA Investigational New Drug (IND) status for study at the University of California.   Although not the first studies of natural products for use in medicine, they are among
      only a handful to have received this FDA status.

                Menopausal Syndrome Made Easy   
      MENOPAUSE is the absence of menstrual period for 12 months. The menopausal transition starts with varying menstrual cycle length and ends with the final menstrual period.
      Perimenopause means "around the time of menopause." 
      Postmenopause is the entire period of time that comes after the last menstrual period.

      Menopause is the time in a woman's life when the function of the ovaries ceases. The ovaries are the main source of female hormones. The hormones also regulate the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Estrogens also protect the bone. Therefore, a woman can develop osteoporosis later in life when her ovaries do not produce adequate estrogen.


      The average age of menopause is 51 years old. But there is no way to predict when an individual woman will enter menopause. The age at which a woman starts having menstrual periods is also not related to the age of menopause onset.
      Most women reach menopause between the ages of 45 and 55, but menopause may occur as earlier as the 30s or 40s, or may not occur until a woman reaches her 60s. As a rough "rule of thumb," women tend to undergo menopause at an age similar to that of their mother's.

      Perimenopause, often accompanies by irregularities in the menstrual cycle along with the typical symptoms of early menopause, can begin up to 10 years prior to the last menstrual period.

      It is important to remember that each woman's experience is highly individual. Some women may experience few or no symptoms of menopause, while others experience multiple physical and psychological symptoms.

      The extent and severity of symptoms varies significantly among women.



      Symptoms of Menopause


      1. Irregular vaginal bleeding. 
      Some women have minimal problems with abnormal bleeding during perimenopause, whereas, others have unpredictable, excessive bleeding. Menstrual periods may occur more frequently or they may get farther and farther apart before stopping.

      There is no "normal" pattern of bleeding during the perimenopause, and patterns vary from women to woman. It is common for women in perimenopause to get a period after going for several months without one.

      There is also no set length of time it takes for a woman to complete the menopausal transition. The menstrual abnormalities that begin in the perimenopause are also associated with a decrease in fertility, since ovulation has become irregular.

      However, women who are in perimenopause may still become pregnant until they have reached true menopause (the absence of periods for one year).


      2. Hot flashes and night sweats. 
      A hot flash is a feeling of warmth that spreads over the body and is often most pronounced in the head and chest. It is sometimes associated with flushing and is sometimes followed by perspiration.

      Hot flashes usually last from 30 seconds to several minutes, and are likely due to a combination of hormonal and biochemical fluctuations brought on by declining estrogen levels. There is currently no method to predict when hot flashes will begin and how long they will last.

      Hot flashes occur in up to 40% of regularly menstruating women in their forties, so they may begin before the menstrual irregularities characteristic of menopause even begin. About 80% of women will be finished having hot flashes after five years. Sometimes, in about 10% of women, hot flashes can last as long as 10 years.

      Sometimes, hot flashes accompanied by night sweats (episodes of drenching sweats at nighttime). This may lead to awakening and difficulty falling asleep again, resulting in unrefreshing sleep, and daytime tiredness.


      3. Vaginal symptoms. 
      These occur as a result of the lining tissues of the bagina becoming thinner, drier, and less elastic as estrogen levels fall. Symptoms may include vaginal dryness, itching, or irritation, and/or pain with sexual intercourse (dyspareunia). The vaginal changes also lead to an increased risk of vaginal infections.


      4. Urinary symptoms. 
      The lining of the urethra (the transport tube leading from the bladder to discharge urine outside the body) also undergoes changes similar to the tissues of the vagina, and becomes dryer, thinner, and less elastic with declining estrogen levels. This can lead to an increased risk of urinary tract infection, feeling the need to urinate more frequently, or leakage of urine (urinary incontinence). The incontinence can result from a strong, sudden urge to urinate or may occur during straining when coughing, laughing, or lifting heavy objects.


      5. Emotional and cognitive symptoms. 
      Women in perimenopause often report a variety of cognitive (thinking) and/or emotional symptoms, including fatigue, memory problems, irritability, and rapid changes in mood. The night sweats that may occur during perimenopause can also contribute to feelings of tiredness and fatigue, which can have an effect on mood and cognitive performance.


      6. Other physical changes. 
      Many women report some degree of weight gain along with menopause. The distribution of body fat may change, with body fat being deposited more in the waist and abdominal area than in the hips and thighs. Changes in skin texture, including wrinkles, may develop along with worsening of adult acne in those affected by this condition. Since the body continues to produce small levels of the male hormone testosterone, some women may experience some hair growth on the chin, upper lip, chest, or abdomen.

                Aloe vera: For glowing, supple and spotless skin!   

      What is aloe vera?

      Aloe vera, (pronounced alo vera) which is said to have originated from Africa, is a stem-less or very short-stemmed succulent plant with fleshy green leaves.

      Aloe vera, which is also called the ‘burnt plant’ with its anti-inflammatory, anti-healing, healing and cooling properties, is the main ingredient in several skin care products. In addition, aloe vera is rich in amino acids, vitamins A, F, C and B.


      For years researchers have been conducting studies to learn the benefits of aloe vera and have found that the plant does have properties that can be effective in treating several skin conditions, minor skin infections and also burns and wounds.

      Aloe vera gel is the transparent, juicy substance found in the long thick-skinned leaves of the plant. This gel is suitable for all skin types. Even people with sensitive skin can use the aloe vera gel.

      Various uses of aloe vera

      Anti-aging agent: Aloe vera protects, nourishes and moisturizes your skin. According to a study published in the Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry magazine, aloe vera, when applied topically, improves the levels of collagen. Aloe vera also protects your face from developing fine lines.

      Before going to bed, gently massage a thin layer of fresh aloe vera on your face, around the eyes and the corners of your mouth. This will keep your skin younger looking.

      Aloe vera as moisturiser: Apply aloe vera on the skin before the application of make-up. This will prevent your skin from drying. Even men can use the aloe vera gel like an aftershave. The healing properties will help in treating the minor nicks and cuts caused while shaving. During winter your skin tends to dry more often. To keep your skin hydrated, make a mask by mixing equal parts of honey and aloe vera gel (pure extract from the plant) and apply on your face. Wash it off with warm water after 15 minutes for a glowing, soft skin.

      Aloe vera for treating acne: For those suffering from acne, aloe vera with its anti-inflammatory properties is a blessing. According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Center, aloe vera gel has more anti-inflammatory properties than one percent of cortisone cream. It also has strong antibacterial properties, which will heal the skin quickly and naturally with very little scarring.

      Aloe vera to reduce stretch marks: Want to get rid of those ugly stretch marks you gained due to weight gain or pregnancy? Hundreds of women try scores of cosmetics to hide these scars, but in vain. Stretch marks are nothing but tiny tears in the skin caused due to sudden and excessive stretching. Aloe vera gel can help you with that. Regular application of aloe vera gel helps in hiding these marks by healing the wounds.

      Aloe vera for sunburns: Application of aloe vera gel on sun burns will reduce the pain as well as the swelling and keep your skin moisturised. Recovery will be quicker if your skin retains its moisture.

      In addition, aloe vera also acts as a brightening gel by removing dead cells and keeps oiliness under check.

      So go ahead and make aloe vera a part of your daily beauty regime for a glowing, supple and spotless skin!

                Worldwide Bacterial Disease Diagnostic Market Share by Industry Research 2015 - 2023   

      Transparency Market Research Report Added "Bacterial Disease Diagnostic Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023"

      Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/30/2017 -- Bacteria are of various types some of them are infectious whereas, majority of them are beneficial for the body. Any bacteria that cause an infectious disease are called pathogens. Diagnosis of causative organism of a bacterial disease has always been difficult, since infections show similar symptoms like fever and lethargy. Routine clinical diagnosis have high error rate, administering the wrong antibiotics can sometimes increase infection and can even result in death. The oldest method for diagnosis has been culturing of bacteria, these cultures allow only specific species to grow in the medium, however this method is very time consuming and can seldom be done on time to successfully diagnose and treat the patient. Newer techniques like rapid culture methods with ionized mass spectrometry are currently in use for diagnosing some rare bacteria.

      http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/bacterial-disease-diagnostic-market.html

      Currently, PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) sequencer is the most favored and well know method. The PCR can amplify bacterial DNA a thousand times if necessary, any routine diagnosis requires only a min of 10 – 80 bacteria, which means PCR has a very high sensitivity. This factor is exploited for countless diagnostic processes. PCR also doesn't require purification of the bacterial sample compared to older methods as it has specific sequences to identify bacterial DNA. Versatility of PCR has proven to be a big advantage, diagnosis of many dangerous diseases like tuberculosis, pneumonia etc are done with the intention to specify whether the strain is drug resistant. This greatly increases the success rate of treatment. The shortcomings of PCR are also eminent; PCR is susceptible to false positive report in presence of any contamination, it is also not useful in calculating the success of a treatment, as PCR recognizes dead and living cells as the same. Technical expertise is a major requirement in PCR handling. PCR techniques also require a number of biochemical reagents that are quite expensive. Development has been made to create more specific and customized versions of PCR machines with greater accuracy and low false positive rates. These include; PCR ribotyping techniques which are much faster and highly specific to certain strains; multiplex PCR that can detect multiple pathogens in a single go and nested PCR a modified error negating version of PCR. Such modified versions are currently available in laboratories and are offered as a diagnostic service and are seldom used as a large-scale diagnostic tool. However, with the entry of novel 'portable PCR' there is a scope for diagnostic evolution in future.

      On the other hand, scientists throughout the world are developing ideas in Electrophoresis methods and tests for biological proteins that are produced in the body in reaction to an infection. In newborns such tests are done to investigate the diseases that have late onset period. With increasing population and globalization, the chance of infection remains high, diseases too have gone global. In addition, diagnosing a disease before it becomes an epidemic is very critical. Thus, PCR and electrophoresis machines helps in early and fast diagnosis of these diseases that leads to an increase in the demand for PCR and electrophoresis machines. However, lack of skilled professionals/technicians and high cost of these devices restricts the overall growth of bacterial disease diagnostics market.

      Some of the companies that produce PCR machines are Techne, GeneriBiotech, Roche diagnostics and ZyGEM to name a few. The sales of these devices are currently highest in the developed nations of the North Americas and Europe whereas, Asia-Pacific region shows the highest growth followed by South America and Africa.

                CARMIL family proteins as multidomain regulators of actin-based motility.   

      CARMIL family proteins as multidomain regulators of actin-based motility.

      Mol Biol Cell. 2017 Jul 01;28(13):1713-1723

      Authors: Stark BC, Lanier MH, Cooper JA

      Abstract
      CARMILs are large multidomain proteins that regulate the actin-binding activity of capping protein (CP), a major capper of actin filament barbed ends in cells. CARMILs bind directly to CP and induce a conformational change that allosterically decreases but does not abolish its actin-capping activity. The CP-binding domain of CARMIL consists of the CP-interaction (CPI) and CARMIL-specific interaction (CSI) motifs, which are arranged in tandem. Many cellular functions of CARMILs require the interaction with CP; however, a more surprising result is that the cellular function of CP in cells appears to require binding to a CARMIL or another protein with a CPI motif, suggesting that CPI-motif proteins target CP and modulate its actin-capping activity. Vertebrates have three highly conserved genes and expressed isoforms of CARMIL with distinct and overlapping localizations and functions in cells. Various domains of these CARMIL isoforms interact with plasma membranes, vimentin intermediate filaments, SH3-containing class I myosins, the dual-GEF Trio, and other adaptors and signaling molecules. These biochemical properties suggest that CARMILs play a variety of membrane-associated functions related to actin assembly and signaling. CARMIL mutations and variants have been implicated in several human diseases. We focus on roles for CARMILs in signaling in addition to their function as regulators of CP and actin.
