‘The money has made us lose our morals,’ says ex-Everton defender Alan Stubbs

first_imgEx-Everton defender Alan Stubbs believes the Toffees have lost their principles due to the money the club have spent.The Goodison Park side find themselves in the relegation zone after a dreadful start to the season, despite heavy investment into new players over the summer.Speaking to talkSPORT, the 46-year-old believes the club have lost sight of what they are.He said: “I think this money has clouded the judgement of what we stand for as a football club.“We’ve got principles and morals as a club, as David Moyes would say – we’re a people’s club, we’re a hard working club, we know what we are.“I think the money has made us get ahead of ourselves and suddenly think we’re going to challenge for the top four, which was never going to be.”The Blues are yet to appoint a new manager since the sacking of Ronald Koeman and Stubbs urges the club to be realistic.He added: “As soon as Koeman got the sack, fans were saying we want Ancelotti and I’m thinking, come on, we have to be realistic here.”last_img read more

World of Color Delayed Until Next Year

first_imgShare This!It’s been officially announced as being pushed back. According to the OC Register, World of Color will not be returning to Disney California Adventure this year. Instead, it will now reopen sometime in 2019, but it doesn’t look like the show will be returning any time soon, as Disney says it may still be months before it’s back again.The nighttime spectacular has been closed since April due to unexplained circumstances that occurred during routine maintenance. No one is saying what happened, but the problem was large enough to shut the show down unexpectedly. Rumors indicate that during the regularly scheduled maintenance that occurred in April, components that run the show that were supposed to be submerged in the lagoon were damaged, therefore requiring extensive repairs.The World of Color show, which has been popular since it debuted in 2010, features a beautiful water show, including fountains, light, and music.last_img read more

UPDATED: A Skeptic Questions Cancer Genome Projects

first_imgFueled by hundreds of millions of grant dollars, biomedical researchers have begun sequencing the genomes of thousands of tumor samples in the past few years, linking up scores of labs and sequencing centers in a massive effort to identify the genes behind major cancers. But a leading cancer geneticist this week questioned whether this strategy still makes sense. The skeptic is Bert Vogelstein, who spoke at a Monday plenary session on cancer genomes at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research in Washington, D.C. Vogelstein looked across all the studies published since 2007 that have sequenced the 21,000 or so protein-coding genes involved in cancer, known as the cancer “exome.” The analysis covered 78 tumor samples and eight cancer types (the majority of the studies were done by Vogelstein’s group). Vogelstein also threw in data for 22 medulloblastomas (a type of brain tumor) that his team has not yet published. Even at this early stage of the planned survey–with data on just 100 tumor samples—”we can already answer many of the fundamental questions about the cancer genome,” Vogelstein said. For example, tumors typically have from 30 to 80 single-base mutations, except for types that take less time to develop such as leukemia (about 10 mutations). Melanoma and lung cancer round out the high end (100 to 200 mutations) because they are caused by environmental carcinogens that cause lots of mutations. (Deletions and amplifications add a few more genetic glitches.) To Vogelstein this looked like the outline of a basic pattern that won’t change much. But he gathered some more details.

But not all contribute to cancer. The challenge is to figure out which mutations are “drivers” and which are “passengers.” To pick out the drivers, Vogelstein assumed that mutations in suppressor genes had to truncate the gene’s protein; for oncogenes he included only mutations seen in at least two tumors. That distilled the gene count to just 319 potential driver genes, 286 of them tumor suppressors and 33 oncogenes. Nearly all these genes fall into 12 “core” signaling pathways, Vogelstein said. And that picture—about 320 genes in 12 pathways–is unlikely to change much even when thousands more tumor samples are sequenced, he argued. So far, the cancer exome projects have found only two new driver genes ( IDH1/2 in glioma and FOXL1 in granulosa tumors). Vogelstein predicts that most new driver mutations will be rare; and nearly all will be part of same 12 pathways. It may make more sense to target drugs on these pathways than on genes, Vogelstein said. That’s partly because 90% of the 320 driver mutations are tumor suppressors, which aren’t good drug targets. To treat such a mutation you must turn a gene that’s off back on, which is hard to do. Vogelstein summed up by saying that cancer has gone from “a complete black box” to something that “we really kind of understand.” The “sobering” part, he said, is that he doesn’t expect there will be many new genes or genetic breakthroughs. He has pinned his own hopes for preventing cancer deaths on using genetics to diagnose cancers early, when they’re more treatable. Vogelstein isn’t the only one questioning the wisdom of pricey cancer genome projects. (The U.S. National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), the main one, has cost $375 million so far; it is part of an international cancer genome consortium that aims to sequence 25,000 tumor samples for a total of $1 billion.) The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Robert Weinberg told ScienceInsider that he considers TCGA “money poured down a hole. Sequencing endless more cancer genomes isn’t going to tell us more than we already know.” But cancer geneticist Todd Golub of the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who recently debated the cancer genome projects with Weinberg in Nature, disagrees. There’s more to be learned by finding rare mutations, he says. “There will be some pathways we don’t know about that are totally new,” Golub says, and “we won’t get that out of a few genomes.” UPDATE 4/26/2010:NCI’s Anna Barker and Mark Guyer of the National Human Genome Research Institute, who oversee The Cancer Genome Atlas, told ScienceInsider that they’re not persuaded by Vogelstein’s argument that 100 tumor genomes are enough to predict what will be learned from many more cancer genomes. “That’s a nice opinion, and where’s the data to demonstrate it?” says Guyer. Adds Barker: “I am stunned that he [Vogelstein] made some of these comments.” She says that having “a robust set of samples and a robust set of data” is already providing insights that can’t be gleaned from smaller studies, such as delineating clinical subtypes of gliomas based on epigenetics. “The thing that really differentiates this project from anything done in the history of medicine to date is that it’s really moving us towards quantitative cancer biology,” Barker says.last_img read more
