Tiger that mauled 3 at San Francisco Zoo may have been taunted

first_imgPolice are reportedly investigating whether one or more of the young men mauled by a tiger at the San Francisco Zoo may have taunted the animal before its deadly rampage, a possibility the father of one of the victims said Thursday he hoped wasn’t true. “I don’t think my son would do something like taunt animals,” Carlos Sousa told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “It’s unbelievable, but only the evidence can prove that. And right now I can’t say much.”. His son, Carlos Sousa Jr., 17, was one of three men attacked by a Siberian tiger around closing time on Christmas. Police shot the 300-pound animal to death after it killed Sousa and severely mauled two brothers who also were visiting the zoo. . According to the San Francisco Chronicle, police found a shoe and blood in an area between the gate and the edge of the animal’s 25- to 30-foot-wide moat, prompting the possibility that one of the victims dangled a leg or other body part over the edge of the moat. . Instead, he speculated that visitors could have been fooling around and might have taunted the animal and perhaps even helped it get out by, say, putting a board in the moat. . Ron Magill, a spokesman at the Miami Metro Zoo, said it was unlikely a zoo tiger could make such a leap, even with a running start. . “Captive tigers aren’t nearly in the kind of shape that wild tigers have to be in to survive,” he said. He said taunting can definitely make an animal more aggressive, but “whether it makes it more likely to get out of an exhibit is purely speculative.” . The same tiger, a 4-year-old female named Tatiana, ripped the flesh off a zookeeper’s arm just before Christmas a year ago while the woman was feeding the animal through the bars. A state investigation faulted the zoo, which installed better equipment at the Lion House, where the big cats are kept. . Zoo director Manuel Mollinedo said Wednesday he gave no thought to destroying Tatiana after the 2006 incident, because “the tiger was acting as a normal tiger does.” As for whether Tatiana showed any warning signs before Tuesday’s attack, Mollinedo said: “She seemed to be very well-adjusted into that exhibit.” . It was unclear how long the tiger had been loose before it was killed. The three visitors were attacked around closing time Tuesday on the 125-acre zoo grounds. Four officers hunted down and shot the animal after police got a 911 call from a zoo employee. . The zoo has a response team that can shoot animals. But zoo officials and police described the initial moments after the escape as chaotic. . The first attack happened right outside the tiger’s enclosure – Sousa died at the scene. Another was about 300 yards away, in front of the zoo cafe. The police chief said the animal was mauling one of the survivors, and when officers yelled at it to stop, it turned toward them and they opened fire. . Only then did they see the third victim, police said. . The two injured men, 19- and 23-year-old brothers from San Jose, were in stable condition Wednesday at San Francisco General Hospital. They suffered deep bites and claw wounds on their heads, necks, arms and hands, said Dr. Rochelle Dicker, a surgeon. She said they were expected to recover fully. . Sousa’s parents told the AP they didn’t know why their son went to the zoo Tuesday, but it should have been a fun Christmas Day activity. “It’s not a safe place for kids,” said his mother, Marilza Sousa. “People go there to have a good time, not to get killed.” — Associated Press writers Jordan Robertson, Louise Chu and Terence Chea in San Francisco and Carla K. Johnson in Chicago contributed to this report. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Police Chief Heather Fong said Wednesday the department opened a criminal investigation to “determine if there was human involvement in the tiger getting out or if the tiger was able to get out on its own.” . The zoo was to remain closed Thursday. One zoo official insisted the tiger did not get out through an open door and must have climbed or leaped out. But Jack Hanna, former director of the Columbus Zoo, said such a leap would be an unbelievable feat and “virtually impossible.” .last_img read more

Bolivian winner might expand coca areas

first_imgLA PAZ, Bolivia – Bolivia’s soon-to-be president, Evo Morales, a coca farmer under pressure to crack down on cocaine, pledged Tuesday to keep controls on coca but said he will study expanding the area where it can be legally grown. Morales also called on the United States to work with him to develop better ways of ending drug trafficking while preserving the traditional market for coca in his Andean nation, where people have chewed the plant to stave off hunger and used it as a medicine for thousands of years. “There won’t be free cultivation of the coca leaf,” said Morales, who still has his own coca plot and came to prominence leading fellow growers – “cocaleros” – in fighting U.S.-backed efforts to eradicate coca in Bolivia, the No. 3 supplier of cocaine to the United States after Colombia and Peru. Morales’ apparently wide victory margin in Sunday’s election virtually assures that Congress will declare him president in January even if he falls shy of the majority needed to win outright in the eight-man race. And a majority win appears increasingly likely, since Morales already had slightly more than 50 percent Tuesday with half the vote – including much of his rural support – still uncounted, according to official results. His opponents have conceded and the outgoing administration said it was preparing to hand over power to him. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake A leftist Aymara Indian who grew up in poverty, herding llamas and raising potatoes in Bolivia’s arid highlands, Morales migrated to the coca-growing region of Chapare, where many otherwise impoverished farmers depend on small plots of the crop. The U.S.-led war on drugs inadvertently helped bring Morales to power. The battle against coca eradication that he led helped mobilize was bolstered by Indian organizations already angered by continuing poverty and political domination by a rich elite, feeding a broader political movement. Indians are a majority of Bolivia’s 8.5 million people, but never in its 180-year history has the country had an Indian president. Acting increasingly like the president-elect, Morales said Tuesday that his government would study whether acreage limits should be increased to satisfy legal consumption. Current laws permit coca cultivation on 29,000 acres of the Yungas Valley and a legally dubious accord struck by President Carlos Mesa in a compromise with protesting farmers allowed 7,900 acres to be cultivated in the Chapare. But past Bolivian administrations and the U.S. government are convinced that an increasing amount of the crop is being turned into drugs. Bolivia, the world’s No. 3 coca grower, may have produced up to 118 tons of cocaine last year, up 35 percent from 2003, according to the latest U.N. World Drug Report. U.S. officials so far have taken a cautious approach to the man who had described himself as their “nightmare.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Let’s Get [Thankful for the] Mental

first_imgWonders of the human brain and sensory systems continue to pour forth from scientific research, providing more reasons to give thanks.Skull integrity:  All the talk about concussions in football games raises a question: How do the brain and skull stay together?  Scientists at the University of Miami asked these questions. “Think about the way our bodies are assembled during early development and ask: How do neighboring cells know that they are supposed to become a nerve or a bone cell and how do these tissues find the correct place and alignment?”  Their research uncovered “a network of tissue communication events that ensure that the brain stays in the skull and the spinal cord in the spinal column.”  They found that cells in various areas communicate information about their locations and developmental identities.  It’s like knowing not only the blocks, but the home addresses in a city.How does anesthesia work?  If you’ve had surgery, you are certainly thankful that the anesthesiologist could put you to sleep before they cut you open.  This began in the 19th century with James Simpson‘s discovery of chloroform, that turned surgery from a horror to a nap.  Neurologists are still unsure how it works.  Medical Xpress shows that it has something to do with deactivation of ion channels.His brain, her brain?  Science Magazine is still trying to figure out what most people know intuitively, that men and women are “essentially” different, not only in anatomy, but in neurophysiology.  Scientists in this PC world are trying to navigate a fine line, teasing out actual measurable differences without becoming guilty of (gasp!) “neurosexism.”Conservative brain:  A new paper in PNAS finds that natural selection does not account for brain size.  It’s a working-out of a “conserved” (unevolved) developmental program” Features of the cortex long thought to be the result of special selection are revealed as the necessary product of a conserved mechanism.”Optic flow aftertaste:  Ever stop moving, then feel like you still are in motion?  This is a real phenomenon: a mental aftereffect of “optic flow.”  There’s a reason for it; your brain becomes accustomed to the constant motion flowing all around you, for “coding efficiency” to reduce redundant signals.  It takes a few seconds to compensate for stillness again.  This is described in Current Biology by Cuturi and MacNeilage, who ran perception experiments on human subjects.We propose that crossmodal aftereffects can be understood as an example of contingent or contextual adaptation that arises in response to correlations across signals and functions to reduce these correlations in order to increase coding efficiency.  According to this view, crossmodal aftereffects in general (e.g., visual-auditory or visual-tactile) can be explained as accidental manifestations of mechanisms that constantly function to calibrate sensory modalities with each other as well as with the environment.Seeing the unexpected:  Your eyes see what they expect to see.  This phenomenon, called “adaptive self-coding,” is explored in Current Biology; it’s a complex, neural program for visual efficiency: “The influence of recent perceptual history on the present reflects the action of efficient mechanisms that exploit temporal redundancies in natural scenes.”  But what if the unexpected happens?  That’s why optical illusions are so much fun, like the cafe wall illusion posted by Medical Xpress.  Thanks to our “plastic brain,” our visual system is highly trainable.Rod repurposing:  In the human retina, rods are for low light, cones for bright light.  That’s what we learn in school, but the rods don’t go to sleep during the daytime.  The retina “repurposes” the rods in bright light to enhance contrast information, Medical Xpress says, “to increase the amount of visual information about the environment.”  Johns Hopkins researchers were fascinated by results from experiments with their lab mice:During bright light conditions, the cells of the inner retina receive therefore information through two pathways: First through the well-established cone pathway, and second through this newly identified rod pathway. “We think that the surround information relayed to the inner retina through the rod pathway has different functional properties than the information obtained through the cone pathway,” comments Roska. “In any case it is fascinating to see how the retina repurposes the rod cells during bright light conditions to increase contrast information, at times when they are not directly sensing light.”Reach out and touch:  Transplanted hands can regain a near-normal sense of touch.  Just ask Donald Rickelman, who received a hand transplant in 2011.  He and 84 others have received hand transplants, and are experiencing how the brain can re-map itself to understand the new nerve impulses.  Emily Underwood writes for Science Magazine:Rapid changes unfold in the brain after a person’s hand is amputated. Within days—and possibly even hours—neurons that once processed sensations from the palm and fingers start to shift their allegiances, beginning to fire in response to sensations in other body parts, such as the face. But a hand transplant can bring these neurons back into the fold, restoring the sense of touch nearly back to normal, according to a study presented here this week at the annual conference of the Society for Neuroscience….After surgery, studies have shown that it takes about 2 years for the peripheral nerves to regenerate, with sensation slowly creeping through the palm and into the fingertips at a rate of roughly 2 mm per day, says Scott Frey, a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Missouri, Columbia.  [See also Science Daily.]Skin so soft:  Touching is such a major part of human experience, it’s amazing how little is known about it.  Science Magazine describes the “gentle touch receptors of the skin” in a paper by 3 neuroscientists from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.  There’s more going on in a gentle touch than we can imagine.  Watch for anchors, balancing acts, and codes:The skin is our largest sensory organ, transmitting pain, temperature, itch, and touch information to the central nervous system. Touch sensations are conveyed by distinct combinations of mechanosensory end organs and the low-threshold mechanoreceptors (LTMRs) that innervate them. Here we explore the various structures underlying the diverse functions of cutaneous LTMR end organs. Beyond anchoring of LTMRs to the surrounding dermis and epidermis, recent evidence suggests that the non-neuronal components of end organs play an active role in signaling to LTMRs and may physically gate force-sensitive channels in these receptors. Combined with LTMR intrinsic properties, the balance of these factors comprises the response properties of mechanosensory neurons and, thus, the neural encoding of touch.Skin so functional:  In a separate paper in Science Magazine, Fiona M. Watt of Kings College reviews other recent findings about the skin organ.  “Live-cell imaging, optogenetics, and cell ablation experiments show skin cells to be remarkably dynamic,” she says.  “…. integrative biological analysis of human skin disorders has revealed unexpected functions for elements of the skin that were previously considered purely structural.”  For example, integrins not only maintain skin integrity, but “control initiation of terminal differentiation.”  Another example: “Proteins that mediate keratinocyte intercellular adhesion also play an active role in regulating proliferation and differentiation.”  One more: “In the same way as integrins and desmosomes have functions that extend beyond cell adhesion, keratin filaments have roles in cell proliferation, apoptosis, and inflammation.”There are more wonders going on inside us than we can imagine.  The more the detail, the more incredible to think they are the result of blind, unguided natural processes.  We hope you will be thankful for your equipment this season, and treat it with care.

Soccer City brews up a storm

first_imgSoccer City is Soweto’s latest supreme pride, drawing thousands of foreign and local visitors on stadium tours.(Image: Local Organising Committee) MEDIA CONTACTS • Clifford Duffey Stadium Management South Africa +27 76 191 6722 clifford@stadiummanagement.co.za RELATED ARTICLES • Gallery: World Cup stadiums • Ten stadiums for the 2010 Fifa World Cup • SA vendors ready for World Cup • Soccer Cinema to inspire SA • SA starts the 2010 countdown • World Cup fever hits the roadNosimilo RamelaSoccer City stadium rises above Johannesburg’s skyline as a symbol of rich cultural diversity and African pride – and, thanks to some innovative partnerships, it’ll remain a tourist draw card long after the last World Cup goal is scored there.Although the post-tournament viability of the R3.4-billion (US$461-million) facility – which will host both the opening and closing matches – has been questioned recently, a steady stream of tour groups since January point to its income-generating potential over the long term.There are currently seven Soccer City guides who conduct 90-minute tours focusing on the history of the stadium and the importance of its design. Some 7 000 individuals signed up for tours in March alone.“Everything about the stadium has its significance, from its shape, its colour, the seating and the architecture,” said Soccer City guide Letlohonolo Mokone.The stadium is designed to look like the African pot, or calabash, which is used to brew beer. It rests on a raised stand that represents a pit of fire. With a capacity of 94 000, the stadium is one of the largest in Africa.“The stadium is in different shades of red, which symbolise the fire,” said Mokone. “There are glass windows around the stadium, and at night when it’s lit up you can see the proper affects. It looks like something is brewing in the African pot.”The stadium is above all a symbol of Africa and the diverse cultures that will mix during the World Cup, inside the stadium, he added.The chairs are orange, the closest shade to gold, to symbolise the area’s mineral wealth and many mines. The tunnel that joins the field to the change rooms is designed to look like a mine shaft, giving the players who run through it a feel for the history of Johannesburg, which was once called “The City of Gold”.Bringing in the bucksAfter the World Cup, Soccer City will be handed over to the Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality, which will ensure that the facility continues to function and bring in funds.The municipality has hired a task team to supervise the process. “We will be doing ongoing tours after the World Cup and are anticipating that large numbers of people will continue to show up,” said Clifford Duffey of Stadium Management South Africa.To make the stadium and the tours more sociable and marketable, Duffey said they plan to have coffee shops and merchandise stores set up where visitors can sit and relax before and after tours or games.“We are also planning on using the auditorium, which takes 200 people, to show short videos about the history of the stadium. This will include footage on the build-up to the World Cup, which will be shown to visitors as part of the tours,” he said.Duffey said the municipality will get tenant teams to use the stadium on an ongoing basis. It’s also currently in serious talks with the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to have at least 25 to 50 big games played there each year.One of the first major clashes at the stadium will be the Nedbank Cup final in May between the two top PSL teams. The league plans to sell 80 000 tickets for this game, which will be used as a test run before the World Cup kicks off in June.The name of the stadium will also be changed to National Stadium after the World Cup, Duffey said.“The stadium is an iconic structure that all South Africans can be proud of. It was not only designed for soccer, other sports – such as rugby – can be played here too.”Historical significanceSoccer City was rebuilt from the FNB stadium that was established on the outskirts of Soweto in 1987. Over the years it has witnessed some of the nation’s most significant sporting and political triumphs, and human tragedies.In 1990 thousands of South Africans gathered there for the first public address by Nelson Mandela after his release from prison. Just years later in 1993, mourners gathered at the same place to pay their last respects to assassinated South African Communist Party leader Chris Hani.In brighter times, in 1996, the stadium hosted the African Cup of Nations, which national squad Bafana Bafana won. South Africans are hoping that the revamped site will bring the same luck to the national team 14 years on, when they face Mexico there on 11 June.last_img read more
