Bacteria In Worms Make A Mosquito Repellent That Might Beat DEET
01/16/2019 1:04pm

The next great insect repellent might come from a strain of bacteria that lives inside a common parasitic worm. A study published Wednesday in Science Advances has found that a compound derived from these bacteria is three times more potent than DEET in repelling mosquitoes. More research must be done to demonstrate its safety, but this bacterial chemical could play an important role in the fight against mosquito-borne illness. Susan Paskewitz , a professor of entomology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who oversaw the study, explains that the project started in the lab of her late colleague, Que Lan . She and her student Il-Hwan Kim were studying bacteria called Xenorhabdus budapestensis , which lives inside the tiny roundworms called nematodes. These nematodes parasitize insects in the soil, sneaking into their bodies and releasing hordes of Xenorhabdus , which soon kill the insect. Then, without the insects immune system to contend with, the nematodes devour the carcass and

Shutdown Will Be Worse For Economy Than First Thought, White House Says
01/16/2019 12:47pm

The partial government shutdown is inflicting far greater damage on the U.S. economy than the Trump administration previously estimated, the White House acknowledged. President Trumps economists have now doubled projections of how much economic growth is being lost each week. They originally estimated the partial shutdown would subtract 0.1 percentage point from economic growth every two weeks. Now, they see that loss happening every week the shutdown lasts, according to a CNBC report citing an unnamed official. The economy grew at a 2.8 percent annual pace in the fourth quarter of 2018, according to an estimate by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The partial shutdown the longest in U.S. history is in its fourth week. On Tuesday, White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett acknowledged that the partial shutdowns economic effects are a little bit worse than the administration first thought. During an interview on the Fox Business Network, Hassett, the chairman of the Council
