To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here.TORONTO — Every captain needs a first mate. And at Virgin Voyages, the adults-only cruise line set to debut in 2020, its second-in-command will be none other than travel agents.In an exclusive interview with Travelweek, Tom McAlpin, President and CEO of Virgin Voyages, says that the company loves the travel trade, “so much so that we renamed our travel agents First Mates.”A number of trade-focused initiatives will be included in the line’s rollout over the next year, like a First Mates website and an expanding sales force that will educate front-line agents starting next month.“We have a very detailed plan in place with the trade in the U.S., Canada and the UK,” he says. “We’re starting a new brand, a whole new company, so we’re not going to be picking and choosing how we’re being sold. We’re going to open up the trade, and we’ve built an organization around that.”Canada, adds McAlpin, is a “great market”, one with a high net worth, with people who like to take vacations and travel to Miami, where the line’s first ship, the Scarlet Lady, will sail out of starting in 2020. While a specific launch date has yet to be confirmed, McAlpin notes that the launch will take longer than a typical cruise ship.“This isn’t just the launch of another ship out of the fleet, this is launching a whole new brand. We’ll be very cautious about rolling this out slowly, and we’ll have soft openings just to make sure we get our product right,” he says.The Scarlet Lady, which shares the name of one of Virgin Atlantic’s earliest aircraft, will sail out of the Port of Miami on Caribbean itineraries, although specific ports and destinations have yet be announced. McAlpin does, however, imply that the company’s presence in the Caribbean will be widespread.Scarlet Lady Side View“We’re looking at a lot of different options, all over the Caribbean, including a longer cruise market and potentially a shorter one,” he says. “We’re getting ready to make these decisions, there’s more to come in the next three months.”What we know for sure is that come launch time, the Scarlet Lady will stand out amid a sea of other cruise ships for its “cool” factor, something that’s already driving the success of Virgin’s hotel, airline and other sister companies. Virgin Voyages, which currently has three ships on order (Scarlet Lady in 2020, and another two in 2021 and 2022, each accommodating 2,700 passengers), is being billed as a boutique-style cruise line for the “young at heart”. And the fact that it’s adults-only is what will give it its “fun and hip quality”, says McAlpin.More news: Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portal“We don’t think of this as just for millennials or just for the older generation. We think of this as for the young at heart who want a premium experience, one that doesn’t involve children,” he adds. “With children, you can’t provide that romantic, cool quality from a food and beverage and entertainment perspective. You can create a much more elevated experience by being adults-only.”However, this wasn’t always the case at Virgin Voyages. When the company was still in its conceptual phase, it originally planned to welcome families. But according to the feedback it received from moms in particular, parents weren’t interested in bringing their kids into an environment that was primarily for adults.“Sometimes in order to differentiate yourself, it’s not about what you’re going to add but rather what you’re going to give up. And for us, this was families,” he adds. “At the end of the day, moms need a vacation too.”Vanessa Lee, President and CEO of Cruise Strategies Ltd., calls it a “logical move” for Virgin, which is already known for its “edgy and disruptive focus”.“They can really make this a sexy brand with eye-catching appeal that’s most suited to an adult audience,” she says. “There are very few adult-only lines and with Virgin’s overall reputation across its many business models, I think it’s probably the logical choice.”As such, Lee suggests that agents pitch the new line as a “mainstream to upscale, contemporary brand” suited for people from their mid-20s to mid-50s and even above, depending on the client.“I feel they will have a pretty broad reach and appeal to those who like great service, slightly edgy décor and a host of dining options. A more modern take on cruising that some brands like Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Norwegian are implementing,” she says.The Manor StageBut Lee also warns agents against pigeonholing the company in its early stages. “We must always be careful not to peg a cruise line to a guest any time, especially before seeing the first ship.”All uncertainties aside, Virgin Voyages will surely benefit from piggy-backing off an already trusted name in the travel industry; among its many entities, the Virgin Group includes Virgin Holidays in the U.K., Virgin Atlantic, which recently signed a joint venture agreement with Air France-KLM, and Virgin Hotels, slated for major expansion in cities like Edinburgh, San Francisco, New York and Las Vegas following the 2015 debut of its first-ever hotel in Chicago.More news: Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTAnd although every Virgin business is independently owned and treated as such, McAlpin says there’s value in being able to work together.“We will work closely with Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Holidays and Virgin Hotels,” he confirms. “They get value from working with us and vice versa. So clearly, we will drive synergies with these sister companies.”Now with a cruise line under its belt, the Virgin Group is well positioned to become a one-stop shop for all travel-related needs. But does this necessarily guarantee the success of Virgin Voyages in Canada?Lee thinks the brand will be well received by Canadians, particularly the new-to-cruise market and millennials, and gives high marks to the company’s U.S.-based sales team, which she personally knows and thinks highly of. “They’re very agent-friendly and focused, and I am sure they realize the market potential that Canada has and the ease in which we can get to South Florida where their initial cruises will sail from,” she says.Athletic ClubBut even though Canada holds vast selling opportunity for the new line, McAlpin knows that the cruise line won’t appeal to everyone. In fact, it’s actually counting on it.“When you try to appeal to everyone, you don’t really focus on any one particular group. We think this creates an opportunity for a boutique player like us to come in and say, ‘Hey, we’re different’,” he says, adding that everything about Virgin Voyages will be unique, from the size and look of its ships to the entertainment, crew uniforms and the design of its cabins.“Frankly there’ll be some people who don’t like the product, but that’s okay. You’re not going to appeal to everyone by being different, but there’ll also be a lot of people who’ll really love us and that’s what’s important.”
So far, so good for Costa Rica en route to the 2018 World Cup. “La Sele” topped Panama 3-1 Tuesday night at the National Stadium in San José to wrap up its first place finish atop Group B of CONCACAF’s World Cup qualifying fourth round.Christian Bolaños scored the first of his two goals in the 18th minute when he snuck a rolling ball just inside the left post to beat the Panamanian goalkeeper.Bolaños, who plays for Vancouver in the MLS, came back in the 80th minute on a beautiful finish on the other side of the field after having broken away from the defense. The 32-year-old veteran has reignited his play lately and proven he can still be a vital piece for this offense. Even in the disappointing Copa América, he served as the only consistent facilitator in an otherwise sputtering attack. ¡Bolaños de mi vida! Grande @BOLACRIS7 pic.twitter.com/HRX7bUP2yg— TDMás (@tdmas_cr) September 7, 2016 Related posts:La Sele looks to clinch spot for final round of World Cup qualifying Costa Rica returns with full-strength lineup in last step toward World Cup qualifying Costa Rica seeking revenge against the United States Costa Rica humiliates the United States 4-0 in World Cup qualifier Fellow MLS-star Ronald Matarrita scored La Sele’s third and final goal of the night in the 85th minute on another jailbreak sequence where he streaked free down the left wing before crossing over a goal to the right side of the net.Though the match was basically a glorified exhibition since both teams had already sealed their spots in the next round, Costa Rica saw good work from players that coach Óscar Ramírez will need to rely on going forward. Johan Venegas got the start at striker with Joel Campbell behind him. The duo was active the whole game and helped the Ticos control possession.On the back end, Giancarlo González and Bryan Oviedo got their first starts in a long time. You could argue that both talented defenders should be featured more often going forward as the competition picks up against more dangerous attacks.In its six group games, the Ticos finished with a 5-1-0 record. Despite some sloppy play along the way, the undefeated streak in qualifying games is a good start for Costa Rica as it heads toward the final round of World Cup qualifying.Costa Rica will begin the final round of World Cup qualifying at Trinidad & Tobago on Nov. 11. The Ticos are 17-4-3 all-time against The Soca Warriors and lucked out by getting Trinidad & Tobago as the first road game rather than having to immediately travel back to the United States, where they were humiliated 4-0 by the U.S. in June’s Copa América.Instead, Costa Rica will host the U.S. at the National Stadium on Nov. 15 and should have a good chance of getting revenge on home soil.The other three teams that have qualified for the Hexagonal are Mexico, Honduras, and Panama. At worst, Costa Rica is the third best team of this group, behind Mexico and the United States. Even if it were to remain so, the Ticos would still qualify for a spot in the 2018 World Cup, as the top three teams get automatic classification.The fourth place finisher must play an inter-federation tournament to fight for an opportunity to go to Russia.Costa Rica has a great chance to get six quick points with two wins over Trinidad & Tobago and the U.S. if it can rise to the occasion.

Emirates SkyCargo fleet consists of 174 wide-body aircraft including eight freighters Recognised at Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards for 17th consecutive yearEmirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, one of the fastest growing international airlines, was named Best Air Cargo Carrier Middle East for the 17th consecutive year at the Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards (AFSCA). The AFSCA awards in Shanghai, organised by market leading transport and logistics newspaper Cargonews Asia, are widely regarded as the most authoritative and prestigious awards for the industry in Asia. “We are honoured to have received the award again and the recognition of the continued success of Emirates SkyCargo by our industry is a great honour,” said Michael Qu, Emirates’ Cargo Manager China, who collected the award. “Asia, and China in particular, is a key market for Emirates SkyCargo and remains an area of huge trading potential. With our network continually growing and fleet expanding, we can support Chinese customers with enhanced levels of connectivity, flexibility, reliability, as well as provide them with tailored products and services to the Middle East and onwards, especially to Africa.” Trade between the UAE and China has grown by 35% annually in the past decade to $35 billion in 2011, despite the global economic downturn, thus placing the UAE as the second largest trading partner of China in the Middle East, according to the UAE Ministry of Foreign Trade. Meanwhile, bilateral trade grew from $10.6 billion in 2000 to $160 billion in 2011, and Chinese investment in Africa rose from tens of millions of dollars to over $10 billion. China has become Africa’s largest trading partner, according to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce. Since January, Emirates has introduced services to eight new destinations: Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dublin, Dallas, Lusaka, Harare, Liege (cargo-only), Seattle and Ho Chi Minh City. It will also launch flights to Lisbon and Barcelona in July, and Washington DC in September. Moreover, a fourth Boeing 777F joined its fleet earlier this year, taking its dedicated fleet to eight aircraft, with a further nine Boeing 777Fs on order. Currently, Emirates SkyCargo offers over 1,300 tonnes total weekly capacity from Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, including five weekly freighter services from Shanghai and daily belly-hold services from all three cities. Emirates SkyCargo’s China gateways can be easily connected to South America via its world-class and technologically-advanced Cargo Mega Terminal in Dubai. The AFSCA award comes shortly after Emirates SkyCargo received the prestigious Cargo Airline of the Year award for the 24th consecutive year by trade magazine Air Cargo News.

performed by psychologists at the University of Sussex found horses have the ability to distinguish between positive and negative human emotions Researchers showed horses life-size images of humans either smiling or baring their teeth in anger As they wrote in their findings in the journal Biology Letters the horses were able to distinguish between the two reacting to the angry photos by turning their heads to look at them with the left eye As the Guardian explains viewing something through the left eye allows it to be interpreted in the right hemisphere of the brain where threatening stimuli are processed “Whats really interesting about this research is that it shows horses have the ability to read emotions across the species barrier” said a doctoral student at the university “We have

voracious parasites that burrow into gut walls and devour nutrients like a nightmarish version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar But not all tapeworms are bad news In fact one type appears to protect against memory loss in rats The discovery researchers say could lead to new treatments for some neurological diseases in humans like Alzheimer’s “A lot of people talk about [brain-gut connections] Very few people have data supporting it” says Judy Van de Water an internal medicine specialist at the University of California Davis who did not take part in the research “This study’s getting data that can begin addressing [the connection] more directly” In the study researchers divided 30 rats into two main groups: those infected with the rat tapeworm Hymenolepsis diminuta and those with clean guts To test the potential protection offered by H diminuta the team infected both groups of rodents with a one-two punch: a mild case of Escherichia coli shortly after birth to stimulate an immune response and an injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) after they had been “wormed” as adults LPS is a noninfectious component of bacteria that trips the immune system’s alarm leading to a potentially overactive response in the brain that can include swelling and confusion The idea behind the one-two punch is this: Rats without worm protection will have an overreactive immune response to the initial E coli infection which increases levels of a specific type of signaling molecule in the brain called interleukin-1 β (IL-1β) (Although IL-1β is important for proper brain function excessive levels can damage cognition and are associated with some neurological diseases) The high levels of IL-1β leave the rats’ brains susceptible to damage but the symptoms will only surface if a second infection occurs in this case LPS To test the effects on the brain specifically memory Williamson and colleagues exposed the rats to a new environment that the rodents soon came to recognize After getting to know the box the rats got an LPS injection The following day researchers placed them back in the box and administered an electric shock Twenty-four hours later the team tested and compared memory of the shock between the wormed and wormless mice Just as the researchers predicted when the rats with worms were reintroduced to the scary shock box they froze in fear indicating they had a full memory of the previous day’s shock But the wormless rats paused only half as much—suggesting their memories of the box were incomplete the team reports in Brain Behavior and Immunity The “wormy” rats froze as much as the double control group that was both worm-free and infection-free suggesting that the worms had somehow protected the rats against memory loss after the infections In another indication of worm-facilitated protection the team saw that rat pups whose mothers had been wormed still benefitted even if they themselves had not received worms To test this researchers took one pup from a wormy mother and one pup from a worm-free mother 5 days after birth and infected them with E coli They monitored levels of IL-1β Pups born to wormy moms showed no increase in IL-1β after the E coli infection whereas the levels in pups born to worm-free moms shot up suggesting immune benefits could be conferred through the mother’s milk or transferred in the womb The researchers tally with a commonly held theory called “biome depletion” says co-author Staci Bilbo a neuroscientist at Duke University in Durham North Carolina The theory suggests immune systems that evolve without enough exposure to infections (like the wormless rats) overreact when exposed to even milder forms of infection (like Ecoli or the LPS injections) Following that theory more exposure to microbes may help mammals avoid the oversensitive responses which in the rats’ case could help prevent memory loss Bilbo says her next plans involve tweaking the rat experiment in an effort to zero in on how the worms convey cognitive benefits and how they could be applied in potential human treatments “I’m not advocating that people [ingest worms]” she says “But the information available is compelling and I think it has a lot of therapeutic potential”Written by Ranjit Lal | New Delhi | Published: October 18 2015 1:00 am There is no other scavenger as efficient as the vulture (Source: Ranjit Lal) Top News Way back in the Seventies while living in Bombay (as it was then) and before any real interest in birds had taken hold I used to rush up to the terrace of our building to watch squadrons of vultures go by virtually at eye level as our building was perched on top of a hill high above the city Wave after wave like silent bombers they would sail past with hardly a wingbeat amongst them They were the epitome of gliding grace In great lazy circles they would gain more and more height and soar wheeling languidly and making the black kites look puny and somewhat neurotic in comparison Even here in Delhi I would watch out for them to land on the big old trees in the Qudsia Gardens next door every evening losing height on their approach to touch down precisely on the branch they had chosen Here they would hunch querulously till around 11 am the next morning before lumbering up into the sky to catch the thermals and be off to work cleaning up the dead dogs and other road-kill of the night And when they gathered around on the massive overhead water-tank you knew we were in for a torrid summer Apart from their ability to fly high (one has reportedly crashed into a plane at nearly 40000 feet) I envied their strong stomachs Vultures have stomachs to die for The most unhygienic street food would turn into soothing comfort food because the acids they produce can lay low botulism hog cholera rabies anthrax and virtually anything you can throw at them — or catch from the gutter One report I read claimed that their stomach acid was about a thousand times as strong as ours (and presumably came with ultra ulcer-protection to match) The lammergeyer or bearded vulture breaks and gobbles bones (and marrow) swallowing some pieces so large that their stomach acids begin to sizzle and dissolve the sections first reaching the stomach even before the whole bone has got in Nasty bacteria including botulism toxins hog cholera and even rabies and anthrax stand little chance against the ferociously corrosive acid And it’s best not to startle or disturb a dining vulture for it is likely to be sick all over you — and apart from making you unfit for any company for a long while thanks to the rancid stink the barf will actually burn you (What a way of ending a meal where you’ve just been told that you’ve been fired or have been denied a ticket: you get up gulp and then vomit flamboyantly all over your boss/leader and exclaim “well yes and you make me sick” and stalk off) Not only that but vultures also pee and poo the acrid stuff all over their own feet to sterilise them because they’ve been wading around knee deep in putrefying carcasses They do a fabulous clean up job Salim Ali wrote that a wake of 60-70 vultures pared the carcasses of two skinned sloth bears down to the bone in 20 minutes flat We’ve all seen films of large groups of vultures fight ghoulishly over the corpses of animals — they’re not a particularly edifying sight but they’re supposed to be amongst the most hygienic of birds They have to be considering their diet taking care that their plumage is always crisp and pristine Their bald heads help them plunge deep into the unspeakable regions of long dead creatures — feathered heads would clog up with bacteria laden muck and spread infection They also help the birds regulate body temperature which is why they tuck in their heads like hunchbacks in winter and stick them out to the maximum in summer You might argue what good are vultures anyway except maybe for giving us the creeps They’re ugly doomsday foretellers of death; they hunch around the sick and dying and just wait (Remember that heart-rending image of a vulture waiting for a starving African toddler to die) In countries like ours they’re invaluable Livestock (and we have hell of a lot) will die whether we like it or not whether we eat them or not and if their carcasses are allowed to rot there’s danger of spreading infection Sure there are other scavengers to clean up; but none that can also deal with anthrax and cholera like the vultures can Rats are vectors of disease anyway dogs can spread rabies As for municipalities well you decide… What’s astonishing — and very sobering indeed — is that these iron-clad birds with their bulletproof stomachs (and Bear Grylls appetite) have been laid low by of all things an analgesic (diclofenac) given to cattle For birds that could take on anthrax and botulism head-on it seems a bit infra-dig to be laid low by a muscle relaxant and painkiller but there it is: vulture numbers have fallen by over 95 per cent in our region of the world The real trouble starts when you start to extrapolate a bit and think about all the other — even apparently innocuous — substances we have let loose in our environment with such gay abundance without pausing to contemplate if there could be consequences or what they might be And the next time we could be the ones that get bitten in our kidneys or for that matter in much more sensitive places with the same sort of consequences Ranjit Lal is an author environmentalist and birdwatcher For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More

unloaded the weapons from one tempo to another and loaded 100-150 bags and boxes and transported them to Mumbai On February 9 Karimulla and three others met in Navi Mumbai and left for Shekhadi again for another landing On the day of the blasts however fearing that the attack was Memon’s doing and afraid he would be arrested he called Pathan and with his help escaped to Dubai and from there to Pakistan There he bought a Pakistani passport and eventually became Pathan’s bodyguard and then Kaskar’s bodyguard He said in his confession he knew that an arrest warrant had been issued against him In 2006 he returned to India through Nepal and began living in Mira Road area with family before shifting to Nallasopara The CBI claimed that one of the men sent to Pakistan was “actively inspired and

Azamgarh last week BSP chief Mayawati named him Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi some 40 times Although she criticised them on each occasion she prefixed their names with “Shree” making her one of the few top leaders who have managed to keep their tone and emotions under control this election Respecting opponents has not been the style of BSP especially Mayawati and this linguistic shift was not incidental Through the campaign Mayawati or her candidates have not made loud headlines in stark contrast from previous elections when the sole strategy seemed to be capturing the media space Even the famous “PM post for Dalit ki beti (PM post for daughter of a Dalit)” refrain is not heard BSP leaders say the quiet campaign is a strategy to ensure that opponents especially Modi get little space to attack Mayawati and the focus remains on the contest between the BJP and the Congress “The entire electoral campaign is a highly-charged atmosphere a calculated strategy of Narendra Modi If we react to it they get a boost Ignoring them is the best strategy” BSP national general secretary Suresh Mane told The Indian Express “BJP has to capture ground in UP while BSP and Mayawati are settled players As you grow in stature and confidence it’s reflected in your voice” The confidence seems to come from the unflinching support of its core vote — up to four lakh Dalits in almost every UP constituency Leaders say that the party has learnt from past experience when two previous high-profile campaigns the BJP’s ‘India Shining’ in 2004 and BSP’s pitch to make Mayawati the prime minister in 2009 backfired “We are staying away from the limelight working quietly” said Ramavtar who is in-charge of the BSP’s Ghosi election office The strategy has shifted the focus away from Mayawati in Uttar Pradesh and made it a Congress vs BJP contest While the Congress is visibly weakened the SP is also facing anti-incumbency after three years of Akhilesh Yadav’s rule And while some of the SP and Congress votes are expected to shift to the BJP the BSP hopes to pocket the non-BJP voters from these two parties To catch this voter Mayawati has fielded a record 21 Brahmins eight Thakurs and 19 Muslims from UP which has 80 seats While the BJP and Congress have given tickets to 17 and 13 Brahmins respectively the SP considered to be strongly backed by Muslims has 13 Muslim nominees Congress has 10 and BJP none Significantly the BSP has not given a single ticket to a Dalit outside the reserved seats Still this voter does not seem to be going away It has strategically fielded Brahmins in seats where a Hindutva wave and upper caste surge is expected for the BJP candidate Muslims have got seats where an opponent candidate is likely to pocket community votes In Azamgarh against Mulayam for instance the BSP has Guddu Zamali At the Azamgarh rally which was far bigger than the one held by Mulayam a few days ago Mayawati pointedly told the crowd that she has the complete support of nearly three lakh Dalit votes and if Muslims also vote for her Mulayam would be defeated convincingly BSP is the only party in UP that has consistently increased its tally in the last six elections except for a decrease of two seats in 1998 While it won 20 seats in 2009 it stood second in as many as 47 several of them by a margin of less than 5000 votes – a direct contest in 67 of the 80 seats in an election the party is perceived to have fared poorly Amid the “Modi wave” and the vocal statements of Yadav and the Gandhi family the BSP enters the 2014 election as a party which has nothing to

Evolutionary biologists never lost their fascination with orchids With more than 25000 species they’re the biggest group within the plant kingdom comprising roughly 8% of all vascular plant species Biologists have proposed various explanations for this extraordinary diversity but it has been impossible to nail down their relative importance Now a new family tree of the orchids is a major step in that direction “For the first time they have a well-supported phylogeny for all main branches” says orchidologist Barbara Gravendeel of the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden the Netherlands who was not involved in the work “It’s a great study” Gravendeel says and it shows how orchids owe their diversity to a series of innovations—above all the ability to grow in tropical mountains—that individually or jointly touched off explosions of new species Previous orchid phylogenies had compared just a few genes found in chloroplasts the organelles that turn water and CO2 into sugars (Chloroplast genes evolve slowly which helps reveal distant evolutionary relationships) By using new gene sequencing methods a team led by Thomas Givnish a plant ecologist at the University of Wisconsin Madison created a phylogeny of orchids with an unprecedented 75 chloroplast genes from 39 species representing almost all major groups of orchids as well as from 96 distant relatives among all flowering plants Using the estimated ages of fossils of 17 flowering plants including the few known orchid specimens they were able to date the main branches in the phylogeny and calculate the rate at which new species appeared The team’s new evolutionary timeline begins 112 million years ago when the first orchids appeared About 90 million years ago the major living lineages started to split from each other Then sometime before 64 million years ago a key innovation occurred: Orchids developed a way to lump their pollen into sticky balls called pollinia so that pollinators would not lose any grains before reaching other orchids As flowers evolved intricate structures to attach pollinia—some orchids stick them smack between the eyes of their favorite insect species for instance—reproductive barriers likely formed giving birth to new species Indeed in lineages that have pollinia the speciation rate was 51% higher than in lineages that don’t Givnish and colleagues report this week in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B Next some orchids evolved an aerial lifestyle By 35 million years ago many had become epiphytes plants that cling to trees This shift opened up many new areas to colonize and new environmental conditions; the rate of net diversification increased 88% for epiphytes To make up for having their roots exposed some lineages adopted a kind of water-saving photosynthesis called crassulacean acid metabolism that likely helped them survive only on fog and rain; it increased their diversification rate by a remarkable 203% The biggest boost however came in lineages that moved into tropical mountains such as the Andes and the New Guinea highlands where they found many new opportunities for diversification The rate of speciation among these cloud forest dwellers rose 249% compared with lineages that stayed in the lowlands Givnish says it’s difficult to disentangle the effect of mountain-climbing from tree-climbing because the vast majority of mountain species are also epiphytes Scientists say these traits are all plausible drivers of diversification But many puzzle at one result One-third of all orchids deceive pollinators by luring them with structures or scents that resemble food nesting sites or even mates Yet this trickery another important evolutionary novelty apparently didn’t speed up the evolution of new species “It was a big surprise” says Givnish who is stumped Gravendeel thinks that this deceit probably did accelerate speciation but that researchers have either misidentified or missed anatomical details in many tropical orchids Other experts say even more robust family trees will come from studying DNA in the cell nucleus in part because it contains far more genes than chloroplasts do “The only way to get a real story the closest we can get is to sequence nuclear genomes from orchids” says Victor Albert a plant geneticist at the State University of New York at Buffalo This past November researchers published the first orchid genome for the tropical epiphyte Phalaenopsis equestris More genomes will follow and they are bound to shed more light on the evolution of traits that so delighted Darwin? download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Press Trust of India | New Delhi | Updated: May 4, “It is my humble request to friends in the media.

and other automation to cope with rising labor costs and improve efficiency Thursday’s statement gives no details of financial commitments or legal changes But previous initiatives to develop Chinese capabilities in solar power and other technologies have included research grants and regulations to encourage sales and exports “By 2030 our country will reach a world leading level in artificial intelligence theory technology and application and become a principal world center for artificial intelligence innovation” the statement said That will help to make China “in the forefront of innovative countries and an economic power” it said The announcement follows a sweeping plan issued in 2015 dubbed “Made in China 2025” that calls for this country to supply its own high-tech components and materials in 10 industries from information technology and aerospace to pharmaceuticals That prompted complaints Beijing might block access to promising industries to support its fledgling suppliers The Chinese industry minister defended the plan in March saying all competitors would be treated equally He rejected complaints that foreign companies might be required to hand
