A research associate of mine sent me this a while back.

Thought it might be of interest to anyone who’s been following the seaweed portion of the blog, I can’t remember mentioning it directly.

Hypoxia-mediated downregulation of miRNA biogenesis promotes tumour progression

Here we report a previously unrecognized effect of hypoxia in the downregulation of ​Drosha and ​Dicer in cancer cells that leads to dysregulation of miRNA biogenesis and increased tumour progression. (Published 

You might notice that the recognition of this effect existing through the study of whale diving patterns was first published back on May 12th, 2012.

Canada,

I filed a Charter Challenge against clauses in the Criminal Code that violate the Charter and allow the Federal Government to use incitement towards genocide and institutionalized racism as a political tool.

Charter Challenge

I’m hoping to unite people behind the idea that we can fix the law to better follow the Charter, removing this additional right for the Attorney General and the PMO that’s been entrenched in the Criminal Code for decades.

I’ve got a Thunderclap setup to try to raise awareness: #Justice is in Your Hands

And a petition that’s been up since July: Arrest Harper for Inciting Genocide Against Muslims

And the original charges which were dismissed because of the clauses being challenged: Charges filed July 21, 2014

I’ve been trying to get all this done by myself, but things would happen much faster if there was more grassroots support.

The Thunderclap launches on the 25th at 6:00PM Newfoundland time.

Parliament re-opens on the 26th.

Del Mastro gets sentenced on the 27th.

The first court hearing for the Charter Challenge is set for January 28th at 9:15AM in Corner Brook.

I hope to have your support on this matter.
