Following the results last night, the DNA took to its Facebook page together with many of its candidates, to thanks its supporters for their votes and support during the campaign. Its official page read “Fighting for what you believe in is never wrong. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to all of you who voted #forabetterlife. May God Bless the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the new incoming Government of The Bahamas, and all of our people”.Its Killarney Candidate, Arinthia Komolafe, who lost to Prime Minister Elect, Dr.Hubert Minnis, counted it a privilege in running against Minnis, and extended heartfelt congrats to him and his party. She says her work within the Constituency will continue, as she intends to implement the plans that laid out in her platform.DNA Candidate for Golden Isles, Stephen GreensladeDNA Candidate for Garden Hills, Youri KempYouri Kemp, candidate for Garden Hills also thanked voters who supported him and campaigned along his side this year. Kemp urged residents to trust in God at this time, as he has allowed the people to see what they needed to see for them to cast their vote for who they wanted to govern our country. In response to the DNA’s numbers, Kemp says “Massive election losses like this are nothing to do with regard to the quality or calibre of persons of anyone who did not win, but it had to do with glaring factors that the Bahamian people saw fit to deal with as a priority for them at this time”.Golden Isles Candidate, Stephen Greenslade called on the people to focus on moving our country forward by positively contributing in whatever small way to that effort, as we must work together as a nation to reach higher heights.#MagneticMediaNews#BahamasGeneralElections2017#DNACandidatesReactToLoss Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Selfish genes tell us to stay home when sick

first_imgThere are some “selfish” genes which tell you to stay in bed whenever you feel sick, your nose is stuffed and your headache is spreading to your toes —only to save others from infections, say researchers.Along with the symptoms, the sick individual can become depressed and lose interest in social and sexual contact, limiting opportunities to transmit pathogens, they noted.According to them, feeling sick is an evolutionary adaptation and evolution is functioning on the level of the “selfish gene”. Even though the individual organism may not survive the illness, isolating itself from its social environment will reduce the overall rate of infection in the group. “From the point of view of the individual, this behaviour may seem overly altruistic. But from the perspective of the gene, its odds of being passed down are improved,” said lead researcher Keren Shakhar from Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The scientists went through a list of common symptoms, and each seems to support their hypothesis. Appetite loss, for example, hinders the disease from spreading by communal food or water resources. Fatigue and weakness can lessen the mobility of the infected individual, reducing the radius of possible infection.“We know that isolation is the most efficient way to stop a transmissible disease from spreading,” added Guy Shakhar from Weizmann Institute’s Immunology Department in Israel.“The problem is that today, for example, with flu, many do not realise how deadly it can be. So they go against their natural instincts, take a pill to reduce pain and fever and go to work, where the chance of infecting others is much higher,” Shakhar concluded. The study was published recently in the journal of PLoS Biology.last_img read more
