ISSCR launches digital meeting series on nuclear architecture in stem cells

Skokie, IL – The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is hosting a four-part digital meeting series, Chromatin, Epigenetics, and Nuclear Architecture in Stem Cells, featuring a global line-up of speakers discussing chromatin, the fundamental unit of life. Comprised of DNA wrapped around a core of histone proteins and additional structural proteins, chromatin and its structure fundamentally regulates essentially all cellular processes via changes in its structure and its impact on gene regulation. With advances in labeling and imaging, genome editing and sequencing technologies, insight into these processes is accelerating and providing important insights into the complex biology of stem cell function.

Held in parallel with a special issue of Stem Cell Reports on nuclear architecture, the meeting series features leading scientists who will explore how and why such changes in chromatin structure are particularly pertinent in stem cells, which maintain potency on the one hand, but undergo massive

The Investigative Art Collective Forensic Architecture Has Issued a Report on What Led to the Devastating Blast in Beirut

When a massive explosion tore through Beirut on August 4, journalists at the Egyptian newspaper Mada Masr knew whom to call to get a proper investigation underway: Forensic Architecture.

More than 200 people died in the blast, which injured over 6,500, and leveled considerable parts of the Lebanese city of about 360,000. Nearly 3,000 tons of ammonium nitrate, seized from a vessel bound for Mozambique, had been stored in a government warehouse in the port near densely populated neighborhoods for years, despite warnings of the grave danger posed by the explosive material.

Investigations by the Lebanese military and government, as well as French and American governments, have been kept under wraps, and the Lebanese people are despairing that anyone will be held accountable, writes Mada Masr.

But now, after three months, Forensic Architecture’s investigation, headed by researcher Samaneh Moafi and featuring a compelling 15-minute video, has been made public. It

Liam Hemsworth has sold the Malibu home that he once shared with ex-wife Miley Cyrus, a source confirms to PEOPLE. The property was destroyed two years ago in a wildfire.

The Hunger Games actor, 30, sold the property to an unidentified buyer for $3.6 million in an off-market deal in October. Variety reported that Hemsworth purchased the 7.4-acre place for $6.8 million in 2014, four years before California wildfires scorched the home in November 2018.

At the time of the devastating blazes, Hemsworth shared photographs from the wreckage of the house on social media, telling fans that it had been a “heartbreaking few days.”

“Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires,” the star wrote at the time. “I spent the day

Home design ideas: Redoing a kitchen in glass and shiny black

Caroline Stangle had envisioned a kitchen with black cabinetry even before she and her husband purchased their South End town house. “I pictured a glass and steel wall with dark, moody cabinets,” she says. Melinda Guglietta, principal of Bespoke of Winchester, created several cabinetry finish samples to find just the right depth of color and subtle level of sheen that were achieved by replicating the dark, chalky shade of Farrow & Ball Railings. Paired with unlacquered brass it strikes just the right note.

1. Drawn to the authentic marble-like appearance, Stangle chose manufactured stone slabs by Neolith for the counters and backsplash. “Similar products didn’t have the continuous veining pattern we wanted for the waterfall island,” she says.

2. A stainless steel La Cornue range replaced a fireplace (the kitchen was formerly a living room) while the ductwork for the hood runs through the top tier of cabinetry and
