As a result of the procedure, the egg was almost entirely made up of genetic material from the couple, plus a very small amount (some 0.15%) of the female donor's DNA. Zukin said he hopes the pronuclear transfer technique could help other women whose embryos stop developing at a very early stage of development during cycles of IVF. The boy is considered to be the second "three-parent" baby after a similar baby was born in Mexico in 2016 after the use of a different technique. Zukin said the pronuclear transfer method could be used to help women who suffer from a rare condition called embryo arrest. Zukin estimated that annually some two million women across the world try to have a baby using IVF and around 1% of these suffer embryo arrest. "So I think approximately 10-20 thousand women per year could be potential candidates for using this method," Zukin said.

That’s a dismal prospect, to be sure. But Donald Trump has created a moment of real opportunity not just for fat cats, conservatives and the disgruntled, but for leftists who envision a more equitable and inclusive America than they do. And we are fast rising to his challenge. The Republicans didnt win because of “dark money” or Russian hackers. They won because fifty years ago they put forth what they saw as a patriotic, conservative program for radical change in a liberal society. Then they did the necessary thing: they committed to the long haul against the hated liberals, and went to work in deadly earnest at the grassroots, on the airwaves, in school boards, city halls, state houses and Congress, to impose that program wherever they could. The program calls on Americans to despise, distrust and shrink at all costs our federal government, cut taxes recklessly, stop trying to regulate the economy, privatize everything possible, carry firearms for self-defense, wage permanent war for self-defense, discredit science and educated discourse in general, eviscerate public education, incarcerate the “undesirable,” let “markets” see to the people’s well-being.

There's a salad at the Honest Weight Food Coop in Albany I find completely addictive... Yes, you've read this opener here before, and I can't promise this will be the last. (If you're new here, here's the first and the second .) I also can't promise this will be the last kale salad recipe to be posted, because if you need this kale salad in your repertoire — and you do, I promise — you likely will need others. Kale is standing the test of time. Anyway, on a visit to Honest Weight in early December to stock up on muesli ingredients , I bumped into a friend at my favorite spot: the wall of prepared salads (just around the corner from the shelf of Cider Belly Donuts, my next stop). Before I could begin my usual browsing, she handed me a tub of the kale Caesar, her favorite. When I got home, I discovered why: in addition to it being delicious — the dressing is light and lemony — the kale itself is extremely soft and tender.

Dark. “Radical.” “Not strong.” “A call to arms.” The television anchors, reporters and analysts covering President Donald Trump’s inaugural speech may have appeared on different networks, but they were united in their depictions of Trump’s speech. “A speech that, in the early 1960s, gave us ‘ask not,’ today gave us ‘American carnage,’ ” said MSNBC anchor Brian Williams. “One of the most radical inauguration speeches we’ve ever heard…. Pure populism,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said. “This was Donald Trump seizing power, in the sense that there is a new sheriff in town,” Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said. The American carnage must stop right here right now. … This was the speech of an insurgent, the leader of a revolt that has won, and taken control of Washington.” Even the more charitable descriptions of the speech noted that darkness of his rhetoric.

Not content with this, he’s even warning Toyota (a Japanese firm!) that it too must think carefully before ‘exportingUS auto workersjobs south of the border. Trump is certainly hinting tariffs or financial penalties might be dumped on some cars by GM, Ford and Chrysler/ Fiat if they’re built in Mexico, forcing Ford’s decision to abandon its latest Mexican factory/recruitment programme and bring those jobs ‘back home’ to the US. DJ doesnt like ‘US auto workersjobs’ going to Canada, either. Put another way, he’s keen on preserving and creating vehicle production roles in North America – well, as long as they’re inside the bit known as the US. • Best American cars of all time Why should we care? Because DJ’s next nationalistic step might be to object to US jobs being ‘exported’ to, for example, Italy, where Chrysler/Fiat recently started buildingAmericanJeeps .

Fleet seems to be a magnet for developers, the old gas turbine establishment at my stop. Become homes. All of this has led to criticism of the District Council for not having a development plan. The council say they remain neutral and encourage everyone in the area to make their views known. But the government and developers say there is a real need for housing in this area and residents fear an ongoing battle for Fleet's green spaces.

Years after Khal Drogo was killed off of Game of Thrones , Jason Momoa's epic audition tape for the HBO fantasy drama is still making the Internet rounds. Of course, that's because of the unusual way the Justice League actor tried out for the part of the Dothraki warlord by performing a Maori haka. During a recent interview with The New York Times , Momoa revealed that his character's lack of dialogue inspired the decision to do the traditional war dance. On Game of Thrones , [Drogo] doesnt say much. So how do you convey him? Theres nothing in the script, he explained. So I said: I have this idea. Is it OK to do [a dance] before the audition?' And they were like, Oh, sure.' Then I did the Haka. It was challenging to do the audition afterward I couldnt stop my heart from beating.

But she was far from the only loser in presidential history forced to stand by as the winner was sworn in. Just 24 years ago today, George H.W. Bush surrendered his office to Bill Clinton, who had won only a plurality of the voter after a hard-fought and often bitter campaign. It was a measure of the cycles of history, and of the strange bedfellows that politics can make, that the friendliest faces on the platform for Bill and Hillary Clinton on Friday may well have been their seatmates: George and Laura Bush, the two couples united not only by the mystic bonds of the former presidentsclub but by their familiesmutual and well-established disdain for Donald Trump.

Weve collected seven digital marketing data points that got our attention this week, including news about livestreaming, app revenues and the NFLs top Twitter users. Check them out: 1. Livestreaming down In the second half of 2016, per eMarketer , UBS Evidence Lab found that 36 percent of internet users said they watched live video as of November. Heres the thing: That figure is 2 percentage points less than those who reported livestreaming in a June. The data points come on the heels of Facebook reportedly planning to stop paying publishers to produce live videos. Its reasonable to wonder if the worlds No. 1 social networks movewhen considering UBS new researchis a canary in the coal mine when it comes to livestreaming. 2.
