Union leaders have congratulated their members for closing down schools, claiming that it was their threats to not turn up to class, as opposed to the scientific data, which led to Boris Johnson ordering that children should stay at home last month. NEU bosses described the pandemic as a “turning point” in the power of teachers over the Government, but MPs say the union is “playing politics” and “hijacking the pandemic”. NEU officials want to return to schools when it is safe, but have rejected the Government proposals at every turn.
Cancer cells depend heavily on sustained expression of anti apoptotic proteins. Targeting transcription to suppress these anti apoptotic proteins seems a promising strategy for anti cancer therapy. Cyclin dependant kinase 9 (CDK9) regulates transcription elongation by phosphorylating Ser2 on the C terminal domain of RNA polymerase II, while CDK7 phosphorylates Ser5 during transcription initiation.
“Black Sam” Bellamy was born in Devon in 1689 and joined the Royal Navy as a teenager. After a failed stint as a treasure hunter in North America, he turned to piracy, dubbing himself the “Robin Hood of the Sea” and reportedly serving aboard the Marianne alongside Edward Teach, the future Blackbeard.

RZIM released an independent report by the Atlanta law firm Miller Martin detailing Zacharias transgressions, including sexual misconduct and rape allegations from more than a dozen massage therapists and the discovery of about 200 photos of young women on his phones, some of them nude selfies. The board of RZIM, which is led by Zacharias daughter, said it was “shocked and grieved by Ravi actions,” and apologized to his victims: “Words cannot come close to expressing the sorrow that we feel for what you have been through or the gratitude we feel for the bravery with which you have responded.” RZIM denied any sexual misconduct by its founder last fall, and Zacharias had sued one accuser for extortion before he died. Most of the women Miller Martin interviewed said that during massages, Zacharias would grab their breasts or genitals and ask for sexual gratification.
