Americans jointly honored

Three American scientists have won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discoveries about the inner workings of biological clocks in living things.

The Nobel Committee says the three researchers used fruit files to study a specific gene that controls biological rhythm. They revealed how that gene encodes a protein in a cell overnight that then degrades during the day.

They then zeroed in on other components of this process inside the cell. The committee says their discoveries explain how plants, animals, and humans adapt their internal rhythms to match up with the Earth’s turns. Inner clocks regulate behavior, hormone levels, sleep, body temperature, and metabolism.

The committee says having an inner clock that’s constantly out of rhythm is associated with increased risk for various diseases.

 


 

What kind of marriage partners do fathers deny for their daughters?

Web magazine R25 surveyed 200 fathers in their 40s and 50s with unmarried daughters asking what type of men they do not want their daughters to marry. In first place were men who were “chasing a dream and not attached to a regular job” followed by “flashy looking guys like nightclub hosts*.” In third and fourth place were guys “the same age or older than the father’s” and “foreigners who cannot speak Japanese” respectively.

拒む、帰属する、けばけばしい、などなど

*和製英語。Host=A Japanese “host” is a guy whose job is to fulfill women’s fantasies of how a man looks and acts. Usually, they drink together in a club.

 


 

JAXA to provide new life support system for ISS

News agencies announced that the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency is planning to provide a new life support system for the international Space Station. The system will be part of Japan’s contribution towards keeping the ISS operational until 2024. The system, which will recycle water and air, will be one-fourth the size of the current system and have reduced power and maintenance requirements.
