New type of cell movement discovered
In a new study from the University of Pennsylvania and National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, scientists used an innovative technique to study how cells move in a three-dimensional matrix, similar to the structure of certain tissues, such as the skin. They discovered an entirely new type of cell movement whereby the nucleus helps propel cells through the matrix like a piston in an engine, generating pressure that thrusts the cell’s plasma membrane forward.

"Our work elucidated a highly intriguing question: how cells move when they are in the complex and physiologically relevant environment of a 3-D extracellular matrix," said Hyun (Michel) Koo, a professor in the Department of Orthodontics at Penn’s School of Dental Medicine. "We discovered that the nucleus can act as a piston that physically compartmentalizes the cell cytoplasm and increases the hydrostatic pressure driving the cell motility within a 3-D matrix."

R. J. Petrie, H. Koo, K. M. Yamada. Generation of compartmentalized pressure by a nuclear piston governs cell motility in a 3D matrix. Science, 2014; 345 (6200): 1062 DOI: 10.1126/science.1256965

Cops Rough Up Citizen Journalist For Videotaping Republicans Being Nasty

One look at Nydia Tisdale should tell anyone with half a brain that she’s hardly a physical threat to a couple of police officers with a gun. But that didn’t stop them from forcibly ejecting her when Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens cracked a good ole boy joke about Michelle Nunn and noticed that he was caught on tape.

The force with which the police ejected her was so over the top that even the lady Republicans were appalled. And rightly so. TPM:

About 10 minutes later in the video, a hand aggressively blocked Tisdale’s camera. The footage showed her being pushed out of the building and into an adjacent one. It was unclear who pushed her, but at some point a Dawson County sheriff’s official appeared in the video.

Tisdale asked the official if she could get her purse to give him her identification.

"Nope, you’re going to jail," the officer said in the video.

"I’ve been real nice, now you’re going to jail for resisting arrest if you do not stop," the official said. By then, the sheriff’s official had Tisdale with her hands behind her back pressed against a desk. He never identified himself in the video. Another man could be heard saying, "Will you please stop ma’am? We’ve asked you multiple times."

Dawson County Republican Party Chairwoman Linda Clary Umberger followed the official and Tisdale. In the video she was heard saying to Tisdale: “I am sorry that people are treating you this way. This is wrong.”

How in the hell are people even accepting in the least that it is a CONSTITUTIONALLY GUARANTEED RIGHT for journalists to NEVER be harassed or prevented from doing their jobs by police? Why would anyone ever vote for a Greedy Obstructionist Plutocrat who claims to love the Constitution and Love America, yet not only allows this kind of thing, but creates circumstances where it is encouraged? I’ve lived in Dawsonville, I am a native, and let me tell you that this is NOT the Georgia I grew up in.

How can these people claim to love America, when they clearly hate Americans?

Quote 2 Sep 11 notes

[I]t’s been clear for years that destroying public education is where charters, vouchers, and online schools are taking us under the guise of helping the disadvantaged. But one rarely sees it put so bluntly as this week. The WaPo’s Valerie Strauss quotes the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce’s vice president of public policy and economic development:

“The business community is the consumer of the educational product. Students are the educational product. They are going through the education system so that they can be an attractive product for business to consume and hire as a workforce in the future.”

Yup. Like Robocop, your kids are product.
