Associated Press Published 4:03 p.m. UTC Aug 6, 2018 Monroe, N.C. – Authorities say a teenager who held up a North Carolina lemonade stand for $17 is still at large. They’re hoping to track him down through surveillance footage and possible DNA and fingerprint tests. Union County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Tony Underwood said Monday that investigators are still looking for the suspect, who the 9-year-old lemonade vendor said pointed a black gun at him and took his cash box. Underwood says deputies have asked neighbors to check their home cameras for clues. He says a camouflage hat and BB pistol found nearby may be checked for fingerprints and DNA. The stickup happened Saturday steps from the boy’s home in Monroe, about 30 miles southeast of Charlotte. Neighbor Kelly Smith says the boy opened his stand at the neighborhood pool Sunday. … [Read more...] about Lemonade stand robber on run; DNA could help track him
(CNN)North Korea has turned over what they say are an initial 55 cases holding remains believed to be of US troops killed during the Korean War. North Korea hands over the possible remains of American war dead After an initial assessment at an air base in South Korea, the remains will be flown to a US military laboratory in Hawaii for DNA analysis for what could be a lengthy and challenging process of identifying the remains and returning them to families. So what could that process look like? Their remains, military tags and uniforms will be examined Scientists at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency lab (DPAA) use forensic anthropology, forensic dentistry, DNA and other scientific methods. Read More The facility, named after the late Sen. Dan Inouye of Hawaii, describes itself as the largest forensic anthropology lab in the world. Scientists there analyze remains of missing service members from World War II, Korea and Vietnam, to match their DNAs and to return … [Read more...] about Using DNA to identify deceased US troops
A ROYAL Navy frigate heading for North Korea will carry a lethal new missile system, the Defence Secretary will today reveal. HMS Argyll has been kitted out with the deadly £850m Sea Ceptor – which can destroy war jets, drones and supersonic missiles. It will be the first time the new air defence missile system has been deployed on operations. Insiders said Type 23 frigate HMS Argyll will deploy to the tinder box Asia pacific region later this year, travelling through the fiercely contested South China Sea to Japan. The mission will take it close to the “Korean theatre”, sources confirmed. Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Sea Ceptor will protect our nation against the intensifying threats we face today and in the future, giving our ships a powerful shield against everything from supersonic missiles to enemy fighter jets. “Fitting our warships with this ground-breaking technology not only protects our Navy but shows we are world leaders at … [Read more...] about Royal Navy warship heading for North Korea will carry a lethal new missile system, the Defence Secretary is set to reveal
Biology textbooks may be due for a rewrite.For the first time, scientists have detected a DNA structure inside living human cells that looks more like a four-stranded knot than the elegant double helix we learned about in school.The tangled shape, known as an i-motif, had been seen before in the lab, but few researchers expected it to occur in human cells.The new work shows not only that i-motifs do indeed exist in human cells, but that they may be quite common.“Our imaging suggests that this is a normal thing that happens,” said Marcel Dinger, a molecular biologist at the Garvan Institute for Medical Research in Sydney, Australia, who oversaw the research. “It is very likely that genomes in all the cells of our bodies are forming i-motifs at some point in time.”A report on the find was published Monday in Nature Chemistry.The study lends credence to the idea that these unusual DNA shapes may play an essential role in human biology, said Laurence Hurley, a … [Read more...] about In human cells, scientists find DNA that looks like a twisted knot instead of a double helix
