Top rank won’t last for long

first_imgEAST LANSING, Mich. – Wisconsin’s first taste of a No. 1 ranking turned sour Tuesday. Even so, the Badgers made no excuses after falling 64-55 at Michigan State in their first game in school history as the top-ranked team in The Associated Press poll. Kevin Kruger had 14 points and a career-high 10 assists to help lead the Rebels. Kruger made only 2 of 11 shots from the field, but made all nine free throws. At No. 19 Texas 80, Texas Tech 51 A.J. Abrams scored 18 points and the Longhorns stayed in the thick of the Big 12 race. Kevin Durant had 17 points for the Longhorns (20-7, 10-3), who had all five starters score in double figures but didn’t have a 20-point scorer for the first time this season. At Providence 64, No. 22 West Virginia 61 Weyinmi Efejuku scored 24 points with seven rebounds and the Friars took advantage of the Mountaineers’ 32 missed 3-point attempts. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Scientists: Appendix reboots ‘good’ germs

first_imgIn less developed countries, where the appendix may be still useful, the rate of appendicitis is lower than in the U.S., other studies have shown, Parker said. He said the appendix may be another case of an overly hygienic society triggering an overreaction by the body’s immune system. Even though the appendix seems to have a function, people should still have them removed when they are inflamed because the situation could turn deadly, Parker said. About 300 to 400 Americans die of appendicitis each year, according to the CDC. Five scientists not connected with the research said the Duke theory makes sense and raises interesting questions. The idea “seems by far the most likely” explanation for the function of the appendix, said Brandeis University biochemistry professor Douglas Theobald. “It makes evolutionary sense.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – Some scientists think they have figured out the real job of the troublesome and seemingly useless appendix: It produces and protects good germs for your gut. That’s the theory from surgeons and immunologists at Duke University Medical School, published online in a scientific journal this week. For generations the appendix has been dismissed as superfluous. Doctors figured it had no function. Surgeons removed them routinely. People live fine without them. And when infected, the appendix can turn deadly. It gets inflamed quickly and some people die if it isn’t removed in time. Two years ago, 321,000 Americans were hospitalized with appendicitis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityThe function of the appendix seems related to the massive amount of bacteria populating the human digestive system, according to the study in the Journal of Theoretical Biology. There are more bacteria than human cells in the typical body. Most of it is good and helps digest food. But sometimes the flora of bacteria in the intestines die or are purged. Diseases such as cholera or amoebic dysentery would clear the gut of useful bacteria. The appendix’s job is to reboot the digestive system in that case. The appendix “acts as a good safe house for bacteria,” said Duke surgery professor Bill Parker, a study co-author. Its location – just below the normal one-way flow of food and germs in the large intestine in a sort of gut cul-de-sac – helps support the theory, he said. Also, the worm-shaped organ outgrowth acts like a bacteria factory, cultivating the good germs, Parker said. That use is not needed in a modern industrialized society, Parker said. If a person’s gut flora dies, they can usually repopulate it easily with germs they pick up from other people, he said. But before dense populations in modern times and during epidemics of cholera that affected a whole region, it wasn’t as easy to grow back that bacteria and the appendix came in handy. last_img read more

Santa, others offer cheer, comfort to victims of blaze

first_img“Thank you, everybody that is here,” 13-year-old Crisna Sanchez said, tears streaming down her face. “It feels great being helped by the community and our school and the Fire Department,” Mario Sanchez said, watching his children tear open wrapping paper. Eleven-year-old Moses Sanchez ripped into a square-shaped gift, revealing a red and white basketball. Smiling, he said he appreciated that firefighters had first rushed to his home to put out the blaze and now had presented him with gifts. “I’m thankful for them,” he said. Early Saturday morning, the Sanchez family fled as fire rapidly spread through their wood-framed house on Yale Street. Two people, Rogelio Hernandez, 39, and his mother Teresa Alvarez Rodriguez, 62, who lived in an apartment on the two-story house’s second floor, could not escape and died. • Photo Gallery: Passing out gifts PASADENA – Christmas came early Wednesday for members of a Pasadena family displaced by a recent fire that killed two people at their subdivided home. Pasadena Fire Department and Pasadena Unified School District officials met Mario and Angelina Sanchez, their four children and niece outside McKinley Elementary School, where a crew of fire vehicles and Santa Claus waited. Fire Capt. Daniel Serna and Santa handed out presents. Among the gifts were three bicycles, a toy truck, a basketball and the board game “Battleship.” The two were the first people to die in a house fire in Pasadena in about two years, officials said. Officials were still investigating the cause Wednesday and had not determined how the fire started, Pasadena fire spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. The Sanchez family lost nearly everything they owned. “The only thing they really got out with was their pajamas,” said fire Chief Dennis Downs. “Hopefully, this will help them out, emotionally.” The family now is staying at a hotel while looking for a permanent home, Mario Sanchez said. Councilman Chris Holden said the city could step in and help fund temporary housing until the family finds a permanent place to live. “It’s obviously a tragedy,” Holden said. “But it’s also a good opportunity for them as a family to know that their community cares about them, and we want to do whatever we can to make the transition as comfortable as possible.” McKinley Elementary Principal Marisa Sarian said school employees and students felt they simply had to get involved after hearing of the family’s plight. “When the family came to us in tears after watching their neighbors die, I knew we had to help,” said Sarian. “This is a shining example of community support.” robert.hong@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4586 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

State prison suicide rate high

first_imgSACRAMENTO – A record number of convicts killed themselves in California prisons during 2005 – double the national inmate suicide rate, according to state records. The trend approaching one suicide each week is triggering new complaints from class-action lawyers that the state is stalling prevention efforts. Prison officials deny delays, saying they thwart the vast majority of suicide attempts. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation reported 44 suicides in an inmate population that is at an all-time high – nearly 164,000 – though inmates’ attorneys have so far been able to confirm only 41 deaths as suicides. Either figure is up from 26 suicides in 2004, and exceeds the previous record of 36 deaths in 2003. Using the more conservative estimate, the rate is 27 deaths per 100,000 inmates, compared with a national rate of 14 per 100,000 calculated by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics. That rate is falling nationally even as California’s rate increases. The National Center on Institutions and Alternatives puts the nationwide prison suicide rate at about 13 deaths per 100,000, compared to 11 deaths per 100,000 in the general community. Seventy percent of inmate suicides in California occur in disciplinary isolation units, which reported an astronomical rate of 248 suicides per 100,000 inmates in 2004. “We try to be there and vigilant,” said corrections spokesman J.P. Tremblay. “It’s always a tragedy when anybody commits suicide, but we’re working hard to try to prevent that. We have made some progress, but it’s not going to happen overnight.” Lawyers representing more than 26,000 mentally ill inmates in California are heading back to a Sacramento federal judge Thursday, accusing the state of not training guards quickly enough to provide emergency resuscitation when inmates are found unresponsive. Some prisons have trained fewer than half their guards, said Michael Bien, the lead attorney. Prison attorneys say most have trained at least 75 percent of guards, and many are above 90 percent. “While we don’t expect 100 percent, it should be at least in the 90s. This is life and death, for heaven’s sake,” Bien said. Previous prison policy let guards wait for medical staff to arrive: “You could choose not to help someone who was dying at your feet,” Bien said. California officials have balked at replacing overhead air vents in segregation units with vent covers that have smaller openings to prevent inmates from stringing sheets or cords to hang themselves. The department says the smaller vents would restrict air flow, while the inmates’ attorneys say the vents are used in hundreds of prisons, including the California Men’s Colony and Atascadero State Hospital for the criminally mentally ill. Inmate attorneys are also objecting to prison proposals to reduce the amount of mental health supervision provided in segregation units. They hope a federal judge will order a hearing into a 3-year-old prison policy that treats mental illness as a security danger. The mentally ill are often sent to more secure prisons where they are housed with violent inmates and are more frequently locked in their cells with fewer privileges and amenities. A special master appointed by U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton is set to soon release a report on the corrections department’s decision two years ago to stop stationing a guard outside the cells of each one or two suicide-risk inmates. Now, guards monitor as many as six inmates at a time via television cameras in the cells, which Bien said is far from foolproof and prevents the human contact that could help deter suicides. Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero, who chairs two corrections oversight committees, criticized prison officials for failing to adopt what she called “no brainer” precautions. The Democrat from Los Angeles plans hearings this month. Bien blamed the prison system’s swelling population and understaffing for the increase in suicides. More general population inmates are locked in their cells for longer periods without significant activities, so their conditions more closely approximate those of inmates in disciplinary segregation who are most likely to take their own lives, he said. The court’s special master is preparing a year-end report calling for the prison system to increase spending on mental health staff and services. The state recently hired Thomas White, a former federal prisons official who now consults on inmate suicide prevention, to help find the cause of the increase and to suggest improvements. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Buying calls is gambling

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jon Scheve, Superior Feed Ingredients, LLCThe President started tweeting about trying to work with China to end the trade war and the market rallied 30 cents. The next morning a White House advisor said there wasn’t much progress, but the market still closed the day positively. After the markets closed on that Friday, the President said there had been a lot of progress made with China trade. This topic will certainly excite the market leading up to the President meeting China’s leader at the end of November during the G-20 meeting. The differences between buying and selling corn callsBuying calls gives the buyer the right to buy grain at a certain price. There is a premium to be paid to own those calls. There is no margin call risk associated with buying a callSelling calls can force the seller to sell grain at a certain price. Those selling calls collect a premium up front for doing so. There can be margin call risk with selling a call option if the price rallies, but as a producer of grain I certainly hope the market does rally.Many farmers tend to buy calls. Analysts often discuss the “advantages” of doing this, suggesting it’s a great option for farmers because it allows them to sell their grain now and still take advantage of a futures rally.But buying corn calls usually doesn’t work out for my operation because it shifts my marketing strategy into speculating (a nice word for gambling). Speculating or gambling adds risk to my farm operation, which is something I always want to be minimizing. Why is buying a call gambling to me? Reason 1: Buying calls has terrible oddsThe chances of making money buying corn calls is about as likely as winning playing Keno, the game with the worst odds in a casino. When you buy calls you are buying time. The further out in time you buy a call, the more money it will cost you. Which means, the more you need the market to move higher. There are extremely smart people who have crunched the numbers using complex algorithms to determine exactly how much those calls are worth. So, I don’t think it’s wise to bet against these people and their computers. As time to expiration gets closer, the value of the call drops quickly. Reason 2: Buying calls doesn’t work well with market carryMarket carry is when futures further in time are worth more than current futures. Corn is usually in a carry.In a sideways market, like the last few years, it’s very difficult to be profitable buying calls, because the market doesn’t increase much in value. Instead, far out contracts lose value as time progresses, eventually working back to the current value. Reason 3: Futures value changes don’t correlate to call option value changesLet’s say that the market does increase between when someone buys a call and its expiration. The value of the option doesn’t change at the same rate in the beginning of a rally. Usually the futures value change compared to the value of the option is 3:1. This means if someone buys a call and futures increase 30 cents, the value of the call will only increase about 10 cents. Those 3:1 odds are not a very good return for my risk. Not only is it definite loss of the premium spent buying the call if the market is sideways or goes down, but, those buying a call would only benefit around 33% of the actual move of a market rally that is less than 50 cents.Many farmers have told me that they used to buy calls, but didn’t understand why they seldom made money over the long run. That might be because the only way to make money on calls is if the market moves a lot higher. There are two ways to lose money when buying calls and that is if the market goes nowhere or lower. There two situations where I would consider buying callsLargely I’m against buying calls for my farm operation. However, there are always exceptions to the rule.Protecting a sale BEFORE harvest from production issues if I’m over sold on my insured production levels.Inverse markets after harvest in which the nearby futures contract is higher than further out months in the same marketing year. This is not common in the corn market, but happens more frequently in the bean market. The difference between re-ownership and buying callsI think all farmers should have 100% on-farm storage to best maximize their grain marketing profit potential, but not all farmers do. Instead, many will store grain at commercial facilities hoping for a price rally. Instead of holding the grain and paying storage fees at these facilities, it often makes more sense to just sell the grain at harvest, and re-own the grain on paper. This avoids storage fees and allows farmers to wait for better prices.Straight up re-ownership with futures or buying calls are two different strategies. To me, it’s hedging versus speculating. The upside potential with re-ownership is much higher with futures than what options will provide as referenced with Reason 3 above. Yes there is more downside risk with owning futures, but I think that risk can be protected with other hedge strategies like put options or seasonal trades.As a producer I know I will always have more corn to sell in the future. In other words, I’m always long corn. If I buy calls, it gives me the right to buy corn at some point in the future. Since I know I will always have more corn, why would I ever want to buy more grain? When you buy a call you don’t actually buy corn, but the function of a long call option is to do exactly that. 2017 buying calls exampleLast November I heard an advisor suggest that farmers sell their grain in commercial storage when values were around $3.45 on the December and $3.75 on the July futures. This advisor suggested to re-own their grain with the purchase of a July $3.90 call for 15 cents.The market then rallied until late May hitting the season’s high on the July contract at $4.12, which meant July futures increased 37 cents ($3.75 – $4.12 = 37 cents) since buying the call. However, the value of the call only increased to a value of 24 cents during the same timeframe. If the farmer sold the call they had purchased for 15 cents when the futures price hit $4.12, they would have received a 9-cent profit (24 cent value – 15 cents cost of the call = 9 cents profit).So, in this example buying the call would resulted in 1-cent of profit for every 4 cents the market actually moved (9 cents versus 37 cents). And that’s if the farmer knew to sell the call at the very top of the market. I suspect that most farmers wouldn’t have been satisfied making only 9 cents of profit and would have held longer. The value of the calls were under the 15 cents paid for them three trading days after the market hit it’s high. For anyone who didn’t sell the call during those three days the trade would have been a loss. Three trading days after the market high the futures value was at $3.90 and it was another 10 days before the futures were trading below the values of the original trade at $3.75. It’s certainly not a guarantee that having the futures position would have made money either, but the potential was certainly greater to do so than for the buyer of the call. Losing on a call hurts twice as much as doing nothingHad a farmer sold $3.75 July futures and then held the call until it was worth nothing, the farmer didn’t get $3.75 for their corn, they really got $3.60 ($3.75 – .15 for the option). This trade ultimately could have added more misery to an already difficult year with prices below profitable levels.Many people like to buy calls because they are easy to understand and they can make people feel like they have a chance to hit a home run. But in marketing grain, I find simple isn’t always best for my operation.Buying calls has usually not been successful for my farm operation. Where I have had more success is selling those calls. Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process.
