New US envoy to UN gets red carpet welcome from Russia


She will be jumping right into her new job, tackling global peace and security issues with Russia, China and a dozen other countries because the United States takes over the rotating presidency of the powerful U.N. Security Council on Monday. And she might even decide to attend a council meeting on Friday.

“We are looking forward to interactions with her,” Russia’s Deputy U.N. Ambassador Dmitry Polyansky told a group of reporters Wednesday. “You can count on our most favorable attitudes and positive emotions towards her as a member of our Security Council family.”

Noting Thomas-Greenfield’s decades as a U.S. diplomat, he said “it’s always easier to interact with professionals.”

But he said America’s view that Russia is “an enemy” and a “threat” hasn’t changed under Biden, so “it’s very difficult to imagine how the interaction with us might change with such starting points of the positions of the new administration.”

Nonetheless, Polyansky said, “there are a lot of things Russia and the United States can do together” and “we will judge the new administration by what it does.”

“We’re in favor of cooperation,” he said. But “it takes two to tango, and really we’re ready to dance, but we need a good and reliable partner who knows all the moves and who respects us” as a country with certain positions, “doesn’t view us as a threat” and sees “our obvious national interests in many issues.”

Thomas-Greenfield, a retired 35-year veteran of the U.S. foreign service who rose to be assistant secretary of state for Africa, resigned during the Trump administration. She will be the third African-American, and the second African-American woman, to hold the U.N. post.

Her confirmation on Tuesday was hailed by Democrats and advocates of the United Nations who had lamented former President Donald Trump’s “America First” unilateral approach to international affairs and rejoiced at President Joe Biden’s return to multilateralism.

At the Senate hearing on her nomination, Thomas-Greenfield called China “a strategic adversary” that threatens the world, and called a speech she gave in 2019 that praised China’s initiatives in Africa but made no mention of its human rights abuses a mistake.

The Senate voted 78-20 to confirm her with Republican opponents saying she was soft on China and would not stand up for U.S. principles at the U.N.

Thomas-Greenfield said at the hearing that Washington will be working not only with allies “but to see where we can find common ground with the Russians and the Chinese to put more pressure on the Iranians to push them back into strict compliance” with the 2015 agreement to rein in their nuclear program. Trump pulled the U.S. out of the agreement in 2018 and Biden has indicated the U.S. will rejoin it, though how that might happen remains a major question.

Polyansky said Russia welcomes the “”positive developments” on the Iran nuclear deal and the U.S. agreement to extend the START nuclear agreement, adding that Moscow is ready for serious and meaningful discussions “first and foremost in the area of strategic stability.”

Thomas-Greenfield stressed at the hearing that the U.S. will be reengaging internationally and promoting American values — “support for democracy, respect for universal human rights, and the promotion of peace and security.”

Louis Charbonneau, United Nations director for Human Rights Watch, told The Associated Press that Thomas-Greenfield should promote human rights as “a top priority.”

“She should abandon the Trump administration’s selective approach to human rights – enthusiastically condemning its enemies’ abuses while ignoring rights violations of allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia,” he said.

“But there’s room for continuity on China and Syria,” Charbonneau said. “She should make expanding the coalition of nations willing to speak out against Beijing’s human rights abuses one of her chief goals at the U.N., above trying to bring African, Asian, and Latin American states into the fold. And she should continue to push for expanded humanitarian access to all parts of Syria.”

“老司机”开“新车” 雅尼斯重回首钢冲击季后赛


首钢男篮训练 人民网记者 杨磊摄

人民网北京2月25日电 (记者杨磊)“虽然我离开球队一段时间,但我一直是球队的一员,从来没有离开球队的想法。在我不是首钢队教练的时间里,我依然关注着球队,关注着CBA联赛。”在经历了半个赛季的起起伏伏后,首钢男篮迎回了曾经执教球队三个赛季的雅尼斯。站在熟悉的球场上,雅尼斯期待带领着全新的首钢男篮向季后赛发起冲击。

虽然回到了熟悉的球队,但雅尼斯所接手的是一支全新的球队。除了已经与球队磨合了半个赛季的吉布森、范子铭和李慕豪,休赛期首钢还有望签下前八一队员雷蒙和田宇航。雅尼斯对这些新援也表达了期待,他说:“补强内线是首钢多年来追求的目标,我很高兴看到李慕豪和范子铭加盟球队,但是他们需要时间适应球队,球队也要适应他们。同时,如何利用好这两名内线,对我来说也是一个新的挑战。对于吉布森来说,我看过他训练后,感到非常惊喜。他是一个愿意与队友配合的球员,接下来的比赛,我会对他在防守端提出更高的要求。毕竟我们的球队是以防守带动进攻,球迷也希望看到球队在防守端的拼搏。”

首钢男篮主教练雅尼斯(右)接受媒体采访

本赛季CBA联赛第三阶段将于3月1日开赛,首钢男篮将在开赛首场比赛迎来同城对手北控男篮。在休赛期,北控男篮也在积极补强,内线新星邹雨宸及前首钢外援尤度都有望加盟,北控男篮阵容实力不容小视。雅尼斯说:“联赛就像马拉松,不是由一场比赛的胜负决定的,第三阶段第一场比赛,对手很有质量,我期待迎接挑战。”

同时,据雅尼斯透露,球队核心翟晓川因为伤病,可能将无法参加第三阶段的比赛。“翟晓川的伤病不是很乐观,从目前来看,他将缺席第三阶段的比赛。但是他个人的健康是首要的,球队的医疗人员也在努力帮助他恢复。”

目前,首钢男篮以16胜19负的战绩,排名联赛第12位,季后赛名额岌岌可危。“还有17场常规赛,对我们来说就是17场总决赛。”执教首钢男篮三个赛季,两次带领球队冲进八强,雅尼斯从来不缺乏激情,他在接受采访时说:“接下来的比赛,我们的目标就是每一场比赛都要全力拼搏,在比赛中打出自己的风格,打出训练中的成果。我要求每一个球员把每场比赛都当成自己职业生涯的最后一场比赛,要付出所有的努力。”

JNCASR Scientists develop potential drug candidate for Alzheimer’s treatment



A group of scientists from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) have designed a set of novel small molecules that could disrupt the mechanism through which neurons become dysfunctional in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). 

The molecule could reduce the toxicity of Amyloid Beta (Aβ) toxicity and be a potential drug candidate to halt or cure the leading cause of dementia (70-80%) worldwide. 

Key Details

•  In Alzheimer’s disease , usually abnormal levels of naturally forming protein accumulate to form plaques that collect between neurons and disrupt cell function.

•  This is caused due to production and deposition of the amyloid peptide (Aβ), which collects in the central nervous system.

•  However, detailed studies have established the TGR63 molecule as a potential candidate to rescue neuronal cells from amyloid toxicity. 

•  The molecule is found to reduce amyloid burden in the cortex and hippocampus, a complex part embedded deep into the temporal lobe, thereby reversing cognitive decline. 

•  The research was published recently in the journal Advanced Therapeutics.

Research results 

•  When mice with Alzheimer’s disease were treated with TGR63, their brain showed a significant reduction of amyloid deposits. 

•  The mice also showed a reduction in memory impairment, learning deficiency and cognitive decline.

•  These attributes validate the potential of TGR63 as a promising drug candidate for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Alzheimer’s Treatment

There is no particular drug that can directly act on the disease mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease to cure or halt it. The current available treatments only provide temporary relief. 

The disease severely affects the patients, caregivers and families and hence is a major societal and economic burden globally.
