BOSTON, MA — Below is a recent press release from State Representative Dave Robertson’s office:August 2nd, 1967 was the beginning of a long story between Tewksbury, the State, and a piece of land bounded by Livingston Street and forever deeded for recreational purposes. Transferred under Act 497, the Now, 53 years later, the parks, fields, and trails known as Saunders Field are officially part of the town of Tewksbury thanks to the work of the state delegation and town.“As a child I played, or tried to play, baseball on those fields. I watched the 4th of July there, rode my bike from the Middle School to the recreational department, and even attended the haunted house,” said Representative Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury) upon the transfer of the deed to the town. “The entire time I had no idea that it was not officially town land until I was older, which left me perplexed. Because of this it was a special honor to work with Senator Finegold and Nguyen on getting this issue wrapped up and securing Livingston permanently for the town.”“Transferring the Livingston Street Fields back to the Town of Tewksbury was one of my top priorities upon coming into office in January,” added Senator Barry Finegold (D-Andover). “Working together with Representatives Nguyen and Robertson, we were able to resolve a decades-old issue in a matter of months. These 35 acres are invaluable to the community, and I’m thrilled that they will now be officially owned and controlled by the town.”“I am very proud to work on behalf of the residents of Tewksbury with my colleagues,” noted Representative Tram Nguyen (D-Andover). “I am especially delighted that we were able to work together to get the deed transferred and make certain that the Livingston Street Fields that the residents of Tewksbury have long enjoyed now officially belong to the town.”The Saunders Recreational Fields, often known to locals as the Livingston Street Fields, are the crowning jewel of the Tewksbury park system. Encompassing 35 acres the land is host to tennis courts, lacrosse fields, football fields, the majority of baseball fields, and more. Recently the town and state have recently made major investments into the center, including the opening of a water park and fitness court, with state budget funding allocated to the improvement and upgrade of parking amenities for those using the unimproved lots. The fields are also utilized for large-scale community events, such as the 4th of July, and are the most frequented recreational area for the town.“This is great for the town,” said Selectman Jay Kelley. “We have great programs and opportunities, and this helps secure a future for our town. I look forward to seeing many more generations of kids growing up and playing there.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

Netgear scooped it up in August 2018, and is now announcing a third-generation version of the smart art frame here at CES. The Meural is essentially a large, Wi-Fi-connected digital display that you hang on your wall. A $50 annual subscription buys you access to a database of over 30,000 images from various artists and institutions around the world, which you can then display on the 1080p screen. The previous version cost $600 for a 27-inch model. See also Netgear has also made a few technical updates to produce the Meural 3.0. Among other things, Netgear says it has added an improved Wi-Fi chipset that’s more stable and with country-specific tweaks. It also moved the light sensor, which the company says helps the screen adjust for brightness levels more consistently. You can also look forward to more streamlined setup from the accompanying app. Netgear hasn’t specified pricing or availability timing of the Meural 3.0, but we hope to see it before the end of 2019. Netgear is introducing a few more options for the Meural with this third-generation version. You can opt for a 21.5-inch model or the original 27-inch design. You can also choose from a few different bezels, including black, white, or light or dark woods. Art partners for the subscription service now include the Saturday Evening Post and Normal Rockwell Archives, as well as the National Geographic archive.

Citation: Chemists offer more evidence of RNA as the origin of life (2016, May 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-05-chemists-evidence-rna-life.html (Phys.org)—A team of chemists at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich has shown how the purines adenine and guanine can be synthesized easily and in reasonable yields, offering more evidence that RNA could have served as the origin of life on Earth. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes the process they took in looking for evidence that RNA could have been the first self-replicating molecule that eventually led to all life on our planet and what they found.

For several years many scientists have supported the idea that life got its start on our planet due to a series of events that led to the creation of RNA molecules—it seems like a strong candidate because it is able to both store information and act as a catalyst. To bolster the theory, scientists have been trying to show under what conditions RNA might have come about based on the conditions that existed on early Earth. In the early going, researchers found it relatively easy to show how two of the four main building blocks in RNA, uracil and cytosine, could have come about, but showing how the other two, adenine and guanine, might have come about has been problematic. In this new effort the research team describes a scenario under with both might have come about given conditions at the time that life is believed to have got its start.The team started by extending prior research that had shown that a molecule called formamidopyrimidine can react under certain conditions to form purines—they discovered that adding acid to an amine (which the team showed could have come about very easily from plentiful carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen) allowed for a reaction that led to the formation of a purine and that it would easily bond with formic acid, which recent research has shown is plentiful on comets—that means it could have met with existing purines if a comet crashed into the planet at the right place. Once that happened, the resultant reactions would have led to forging bonds with sugars which would have resulted in the creation of large amounts of purines, including adenine and guanine—thus all of the necessary ingredients would have been in place for the creation of RNA molecules, setting the stage for the development of living organisms.

A high-yielding, strictly regioselective prebiotic purine nucleoside formation pathway, Science (2016). DOI: 10.1126/science.aad2808AbstractThe origin of life is believed to have started with prebiotic molecules reacting along unidentified pathways to produce key molecules such as nucleosides. To date, a single prebiotic pathway to purine nucleosides had been proposed. It is considered to be inefficient due to missing regioselectivity and low yields. We report that the condensation of formamidopyrimidines (FaPys) with sugars provides the natural N-9 nucleosides with extreme regioselectivity and in good yields (60%). The FaPys are available from formic acid and aminopyrimidines, which are in turn available from prebiotic molecules that were also detected during the Rosetta comet mission. This nucleoside formation pathway can be fused to sugar-forming reactions to produce pentosides, providing a plausible scenario of how purine nucleosides may have formed under prebiotic conditions.
Kolkata: Three days after the Kazipara blast killed an eight-year-old boy, chief minister Mamata Banerjee broke her public silence on the incident and said the CID had been asked to probe all aspects of the tragedy and nab those responsible. In response to a question on Tuesday’s blast, Mamata expressed her confidence in the CID’s capability of investigating it. “It is a serious matter, a little child died,” she said at a news conference on Friday evening, three days after some senior leaders of her party issued statements accusing the BJP-RSS camp of having engineered the blast. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life “The CID has been given charge of the investigation. We expect the CID to look into every aspect and take the accused into custody soon.” The chief minister’s comment followed a meeting of the core committee of Trinamul at the party’s headquarters. The CID has preliminarily deduced that an eight-inch iron pipe of four-inch diameter and one-mm thickness was used to make the bomb. (With inputs from The Telegraph)
