Modern art lovers will be able to return to the Broad starting May 26. And, when the doors open, there will be lots to check out.The third floor of the museum will now be dedicated to single-artist exhibitions, including a number of pieces that have been held in the Broad’s collection but never displayed in the museum before, and some major new acquisitions. On the floor will be spaces to experience works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Roy Lichtenstein, Kara Walker, and Andy Warhol.Andy Warhol, Superman (Myth Series) 1981; Statue of Liberty (Fabis), 1986; Flowers, 1964; Self Portrait, 1966; Installation view at The Broad. Photo by Joshua WhiteOn the first floor, the special exhibition space will initially be turned over to a new show titled Invisible Sun. The exhibit features works by a number of artists, assembled by curators because the pieces “resonate with our unprecedented period of rupture and collective desire for healing and recovery,” according to a statement from the museum.“Experiencing art in person offers unique healing, joy, and insights that we hope can play a meaningful role in collective recovery,” the museum’s founding director, Joanne Heyler, writes. “We cannot wait to welcome back our community to the Broad’s galleries, safely, after the long and unprecedented closure of the past 14 months.”Upon reopening, expect some updated safety protocols, including limited capacity and hours, touchless experiences, and mandatory symptom screenings. For the time being, the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirror Rooms will be closed, and events programming will remain online only. Timed tickets will be required and will be available for online booking starting on May 12. The initial reopening schedule is Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Before it opens to the general public, the Broad will be thanking health care workers and community organizers with a series of preview days for staff of institutions including Keck Medicine of USC, Homeboy Industries, libraries, youth outreach groups, and other organizations.Staring in June, the Broad will no longer be the only free art museum along that particular corridor. MOCA, which is set to reopen June 3, has dropped admissions fees, so you can museum hop even more easily.RELATED: A Guide to L.A.-Area Museum ReopeningsStay on top of the latest in L.A. food and culture. Sign up for our newsletters today.

NIH budget cuts will jeopardize America’s leadership in medical research

first_img GET STARTED NIH budget cuts will jeopardize America’s leadership in medical research About the Author Reprints By Ronald A. DePinho April 7, 2017 Reprints In the last 10 years, remarkable advances have been made in how we fight cancer, work that was made possible by our nation’s support of biomedical research, largely through the National Institutes of Health. One of the most powerful new tools in our arsenal is cancer immunotherapy, which reawakens the body’s own immune system. Immunotherapy drugs have produced stunning results for many people suffering from advanced cancer.Immunotherapy saved President Jimmy Carter’s life. After being diagnosed with advanced melanoma that had spread to his brain, he underwent a combination of immunotherapy and radiation treatment. What could have been a sad story of death within months has turned into a compelling story of survival with no signs of cancer. Lydia Polimeni/NIH What’s included?

CPHO Sunday Edition 31 May

first_imgCPHO Sunday Edition 31 May From: Public Health Agency of CanadaOn May 30, 2021, Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, issued the following statement on COVID-19.Looking Forward to Summer 2021 As nature springs to life and warmer weather sets in across Canada, it is hard not to feel the excitement that the summer season typically brings. At the same time, many of you are curious to know what summer 2021 will look like for you and your loved ones and some of you may also be wondering what to expect into the fall and beyond. These are valid questions. We are understandably very eager to get back to a life that is more similar to the one we knew before the pandemic.Easing public health measures depends on local epidemiological data and vaccine coverageThe Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) recently issued a roadmap on what is expected to happen over the coming months as vaccination rates increase and COVID-19 rates decline. It includes indicators that help to give Canadians a sense of when restrictions could be loosened and also describes what Canadians might expect to do this summer and fall with potentially reduced pandemic restrictions.Some of you may have heard me say that it is “data, not dates” that should drive the easing of public health measures at the local level. In general, jurisdictions look for several indicators before relaxing public health measures, including that: COVID-19 transmission is controlled to a manageable level;there is sufficient public health capacity to test, trace, isolate and quarantine a high proportion of cases and contacts;sufficient health care capacity exists (including substantial clinical care capacity) to respond to surges; andrisk-reduction measures are in place for high-risk populations and settings.Along with epidemiological trends, vaccination coverage plays an important role in determining when pandemic restrictions may be lifted. The more people who get vaccinated, the fewer people who are likely to get infected, and the better control we have on the pandemic. Provinces and territories are at various stages of easing restrictions, including the resumption of certain economic and social activities. Many of them have plans for opening that based on a phased approach, guided by epidemiology and vaccine coverage.The experiences of other countries emphasize the need to maintain strong public health measures as vaccines roll out to a majority of the population and that easing measures must be done in a controlled and gradual way as COVID-19 infection rates decline. Therefore, as restrictions start to be lifted based on conditions in your area, it is still important that everyone continue to follow local public health advice and keep up with individual protective practices like physical distancing and wearing a mask regardless of whether you have been vaccinated or not. This helps to keep you, your family and your community safe as the number of people who are fully vaccinated grows.What we can expect to do this summer and fallIf COVID-19 cases continue to decrease and vaccination coverage rates continue to rise, we can look forward to measures relaxing throughout the summer. PHAC modelling shows us that if 75 percent of people eligible for vaccines have their first dose, and 20 percent have their second dose, sticking to outdoor activities as much as possible is the safest approach until most of the population is fully vaccinated. As long as we continue to follow public health advice, we’ll be able to enjoy these activities with family and friends outside of our immediate households. This means we could have more options for gathering outdoors like socially-distanced outdoor live performances with proper safety protocols, backyard barbeques, cottages and beach time with a few more people!Moving towards the fall, we can look forward to doing more safely indoors, if the positive trends in our epidemiology and vaccine coverage continue. If 75 percent of the eligible population are fully vaccinated, modelling indicates that jurisdictions will be able to lift additional measures that allow for indoor activities with wider groups of people without overwhelming our hospitals. This includes things like attending school, college, and university in person, participating in indoor sports, and holding larger family gatherings.It’s a great time to be excited and hopeful about the coming months – our epi curves are moving in the right direction and vaccine coverage continues to grow across Canada. But we must not forget that by the fall, COVID-19 will not be eliminated and the virus is continuing to evolve so it may throw us a few curve balls. So, it may take longer before we will be able to relax all of our personal preventative practices in every setting (e.g. physical distancing and wearing masks) or participate in higher-risk activities, such as large, crowded indoor concerts or large spectator sporting events.Most importantly, we need to keep in mind that how quickly we are able to return to our normal activities really depends on our continued combined efforts to protect one another. We will get there faster together if we continue to follow public health measures to help stop the spread of the virus and by getting vaccinated.Motivation to get us through While we continue to observe measures in place to bring down the curve and give vaccines time to increase our collective immunity, it is encouraging to know that we are still able to do many of the things that we associate with this special season! From taking in the sights, smells and sounds of summer to getting active through a range of outside activities, there is so much to enjoy and do across our country this time of year!And as we eagerly anticipate the return to more of our regular activities, we can draw inspiration and motivation from the progress we’ve made (23.1 million doses of vaccine administered as of this week and over a 50 percent reduction in the number of active cases from the peak of the third wave!), as well as how fortunate we are to be on the cusp of one of Canada’s finest seasons and all the additional possibilities that warmer weather brings.Step by step we are gaining ground and are on track for a better summer and a safer fall. With more of us getting vaccinated each day, we’ll get there faster together. /Public Release.

Faculty in Focus: Cracking the cellular code

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: July 18, 2017 • By Connor Craven A leading researcher in quantitative biology and a recent mother of identical twins, Sabrina Spencer has made a name for herself in her field through hard work and a dynamic view on cellular research. Assistant Professor Sabrina SpencerSpencer’s lab studies the cycle of cell growth and proliferation. Currently, she is focused on why damaged cells re-enter the cellular cycle, a phenomenon that can lead to the unrestricted cellular division that spawns cancer.Spencer, now in her third year as an assistant professor in CU Boulder’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, says that her lifelong sense of curiosity is what has inspired her career path.“There are so many puzzling things out there and to be able to be a person who has the tools to figure them out feels powerful,” said Spencer.From a young age, Spencer always had a mind for experiments and analytical thought. She would dig up earthworms and race them down a dirt track. Then, she would take the fastest ones and try to mate them together. Her analytical mind also spread to how she watched movies. As a child, she would see flaws in logic and character motivation that didn’t seem to bother anyone else, so she thought she just didn’t understand the movie.“I got the impression that I was dense. Everyone would tell me to just watch the movie and stop asking questions,” she said. “It really wasn’t until the end of grad school where I felt like, okay I made it, I completed a successful PhD at M.I.T, I must not be as dense as I thought. Maybe movies are not always that logical, and nobody else cares.”Spencer is interested in how genetically identical cells can behave differently. For example, there are differences in her twin sons. Every day, she sees two identical genetic codes and two identical upbringings, but also two individuals who express their genes differently.“They look very similar, but I can still tell them apart. One has a freckle that the other doesn’t have, and the second has a little dimple-smirk that first doesn’t have,” Spencer said. “They live in the same environment, sleep in the same bedroom, they came from me, they’re genetically identical, and yet they’re still not the same.”This personal curiosity pertains directly to Spencer’s lab. She and her trainees are currently trying to understand how cells can become outliers in a genetically uniform population, work which may be relevant for cancer, because some cancerous cells do not respond to a treatment the way other cells do.The lab takes the long view in studying the variance between cells or in one cell’s behavior over time. Filming cells over long periods of time can help identify what makes a particular cell an outlier.“Geneticists think in terms of ‘wild type’ versus ‘mutant’ at one time point, whereas we are more interested in how cellular signals change over time,” said Spencer.Pursuing research on genetically identical cells behaving differently is costly, which is why Spencer is grateful to have received grant awards from a number of prestigious organizations.  She stresses how important it is to indicate how the research will be used in the long run and what the implications of the expected results are.List of awardsPew-Stewart Award (2017)Beckman Young Investigator Award (2016)Searle Scholar Award (2016)Kimmel Scholar Award (2016)Boettcher Early Career Investigator Award (2016)K22 Career Development Award (2014)“These private foundations are not interested in funding the next step—they want you to think 10 years out,” Spencer said, “They’re interested in ‘out there’ bold ideas.”Spencer has a strong work ethic, but two newborn twins have helped her strike a balance as of late.  Before having her twins, Spencer would work at her lab during the day and then after dinner would continue to work until 12 a.m. or 1 a.m. Now she’s wiped out by 10:30 p.m.  Working from home is usually where she gets through her emails and writes grants, while her time on site is for teaching, brainstorming ideas, troubleshooting problems, and interacting with her lab.Spencer’s colleagues in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry were very supportive and understanding about the twins.“While I was on maternity leave this past spring, they arranged a whole schedule to have different colleagues bring me homemade dinners every couple of nights,” said Spencer.Looking ahead, Spencer hopes to continue the momentum that her lab has gained over the past few years at CU Boulder.“I think we can make a big impact in understanding quiescence, this non-dividing state where a cell still has the potential to divide again, but for various reasons is not currently dividing,” she said. “It’s really not well understood.  Cell proliferation is much better understood than cellular quiescence.”As her children grow up and begin to ask questions, Spencer hopes to create an environment where they can seek the answers as she once did herself.Categories:Faculty in FocusCampus Communitylast_img read more

Several Tourism Properties Being Upgraded

first_imgRelatedSeveral Tourism Properties Being Upgraded FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail There are significant investments in the current upgrading of several tourism properties involving new owners and brands that are expected to enhance the attractiveness of Jamaica as a destination.This was revealed by Finance and Planning Minister, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips, when he opened the 2013/14 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives, on April 18.He informed that among the investments is the Seashore Beach Bay Resort, formerly Poinciana in Negril, which was acquired last year by Karisma, a group out of Mexico. The property is being upgraded at a cost of $1.1 billion.Another such venture is the former Starfish Hotel in Trelawny, which was also acquired last year by the Sunwing Travel Group, a Canadian company.Dr. Phillips said the hotel will be operated under the Memories White Sand brand and its 350 rooms are undergoing major refurbishing involving an investment of over $2.5 billion.Additionally, global hotel operators, Melia Hotels International (MHI), has entered into an agreement with the National Insurance Fund (NHF), to manage the resort property at Braco. The hotel’s 226 rooms are slated to undergo major renovation in the coming months.The Minister further informed that last November, RIU commenced construction of a 238-room hotel at Mahoe Bay in Montego Bay, which will be opened for the 2013/14 winter season.“This is an investment of over J$4 billion or US$43 million, and will represent RIU’s high-end brand of suites,” he noted.The Minister emphasized that the upgrading of existing hotels and construction of new rooms is critical if the country is to remain competitive.“We must recognise that the industry has to respond to continuing competitive pressures from other destinations. If the sector is to continue to grow, we must constantly raise competitiveness, which means we must both secure investment in new rooms and in the upgrading of our existing stock,” he added.Dr. Phillips said Jamaica’s tourist industry is experiencing a transition, with new investors contributing to a revitalisation of existing resorts and adding to economic activity.These players, he said, will bring to the marketplace exciting products that will bolster the local industry.By Athaliah Reynolds-Baker, JIS Reporter Several Tourism Properties Being Upgraded TourismApril 23, 2013 RelatedSeveral Tourism Properties Being Upgradedcenter_img RelatedSeveral Tourism Properties Being Upgraded Advertisementslast_img read more

JPs Receive Certificates for Court of Petty Session Training

first_imgJPs Receive Certificates for Court of Petty Session Training JusticeApril 3, 2015Written by: Latonya Linton RelatedGovernment Reaffirms Commitment to Fight Corruption Certificates have been awarded to 57 Justices of the Peace (JPs) who successfully completed the Specialized Training for the Court of Petty Sessions, which covered a wide range of court procedures.The additional training of the JPs was recommended by the Justice System Reform Task Force (JSRTF), which reviewed the justice system in 2006.The certificates were handed out during a ceremony held at the Knutsford Court Hotel, in New Kingston, on April 2.Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, who addressed the ceremony, said the participation of the JPs signals their commitment to serve the citizens of Jamaica, while supporting the maintenance of order and peace in their spheres of influence.“This training has equipped you with the requisite knowledge and aptitude to undertake the various situations that you will be faced with and to judiciously apply your knowledge in a responsible manner,” he said.Senator Golding noted that the Ministry is currently in reform mode, which has seen various elements of the justice landscape being revamped for greater efficiency and service orientation towards the public.He explained that the Court of Petty Sessions play an important role in the delivery of justice and the aim of the Ministry is to increase its capacity and thereby help to alleviate some of the burdens borne by the Resident Magistrate’s Court.“The Ministry, as part of its strategic plan for the years 2015 to 2018, will seek to expand the judicial role of JPs and today is indicative of what is in the pipeline for the future,” Senator Golding said.He pointed out that there are plans to expand the jurisdiction of the Court of Petty Sessions to include uncontested traffic offences; matters under the Rent Restriction Act where the consent of landlords and tenants are involved; and small civil claims and minor cases of praedial larceny.The Minister added that the ticketing regime to be introduced under the amendment to the Dangerous Drugs Act, in relation to small quantities of ganja and smoking of ganja, will also utilise the Court of Petty Sessions in those cases where the tickets are not paid with the 30-day period prescribed by law.“These developments have now given rise to more Justices of the Peace being trained to serve in the Courts of the Petty Sessions. This is designed to augment the knowledge of Justices to create a cadre who have been adequately furnished with the skills and competencies that are needed to do this,” Senator Golding said.Meanwhile, the Minister extended congratulations to the JPs who participated in the training.“As graduates of this training, you will now be given the opportunity to put into practice the principles of justice and law that you have been exposed to. All the while you are expected to adhere to the protocols governing courtroom activities and the adjudication process, which must be based on fairness and timely adherence to procedure,” Senator Golding said.
