‘Straight Pride Parade’ a go, unkillable cockroaches and Florida targets iguanas : Daily News Weekly


(bright music) – Welcome to Daily News Weekly where we bring you the stories from the past week you might have missed. I am your host, Michael
Sheridan, and once again I’m in my backyard because it is July 4th. It is the holiday. That’s why I’m not gonna
wear a tie for this episode. Yes, that’s how I’m gonna
celebrate the holiday. But we have got a lot of stuff goin’ on. So let’s get to it. In this story, the first of three that we’ll be revisiting today, we’re goin’ to Alabama
where a pregnant woman, had been charged with manslaughter in the death of her unborn baby. Marshae Jones, who was five
months pregnant at the time, was shot in the stomach by Ebony Jemison back in December during a fight. As a result Marshae’s
unborn child was killed. The two had apparently been arguing about the child’s father. Now as we discussed last week, Ebony Jemison had originally been charged for the shooting death,
however, as authorities investigated and discovered
that Marshae Jones was really responsible for the attack and initiated the fight, they decided then instead of charging Ebony
for the shooting death of the unborn child, they
then charged Marshae. Prosecutors however, have now decided that they are no longer
going to press charges. District Attorney Lynneice
Washington said in a statement, “An unborn child was tragically lost, “and families on both sides
of this matter have suffered. “Nothing we do today or in the future “will change that reality.” Now part of what seemed
to remain unclear before was why Ebony didn’t face any charges. It’s still not particularly clear, but it does seem that
the authorities there are operating under the idea that Ebony acted in self-defense. So she won’t be prosecuted
for the shooting. And it seems now at this point, no one’s going to be prosecuted. What do you think? Did the authorities make the
right decision this time, or should somebody pay for
the death of that baby? (paper blowing) Cockroaches are evolving, and soon they’re going
to be impossible to kill. A Purdue University study
found that a commonly found German species of roach is
being born with an immunity to toxins which they haven’t
yet been in contact with. This incredibly accelerated
rate of immunity means that roaches will
probably be nearly impossible to kill with pesticides in the future. You know what that means, we’re all just gonna have to do it the old-fashioned way. Shoes. (shoe banging) Now in the second of our three followups we’re going to Florida, where a woman had been charged with armed burglary after (stuttering) burglary, after taking her estranged husband guns and turning them in to police. Now just to quickly recap,
this is Courtney Irby. She is the middle of an ugly divorce, which included an
incident where her husband allegedly hit her
vehicle with his own car, and drove her off the road. Fearing for her safety and
the safety of her children, she filed for a temporary injunction for protection against him and won, which meant he needed
to turn over his guns. Fearing he wouldn’t, she did it instead. Then police arrested her and charged her with armed burglary. Now in the past week, more
details about their relationship have come out and things have gotten a little more muddied, so it isn’t quite as cut and dry as it was originally. As it seems, the husband allegedly emptied the couple’s checking account. She went to his house and
then grabbed some watches, and a GoPro camera that
she was gonna pawn, and then she saw the guns
and she decided to take those and turn them in to authorities. She feared that he wasn’t gonna do it and after the incident with the car, she seemed to legitimately
fear for her life. So she was afraid he wouldn’t turn the guns in himself, so she did it. Now authorities have decided
to drop the felony charges. She now only faces a misdemeanor
charge of trespassing. Meanwhile the husband Joseph is facing a felony aggravated battery charge, which I believe is in relation to the incident with the car. So what do you guys think? Does Courtney still
deserve to face charges for taking the guns and turning
them over to the police? A woman in Kansas apparently wanted to eat her cake and have it too. Police in Wichita Falls say a woman went shopping at Walmart, grabbed a cake and while she walked around the mega-store, she ate half of it. Then according to authorities, when she got to the cashier, she insisted that she shouldn’t have to pay for the full cake and only for the half of the cake that remained. Now apparently Walmart didn’t want to press charges against the woman, however, she has been permanently banned from that particular Walmart. And for our third updated
story of this week, we’re going to Boston, where the straight pride
parade is ready to go. Apparently, this
collection of knuckleheads who call themselves
Super Happy Fun America, got permission to do
their march in August. According to the group,
the parade will start at Copley Square and
end at Boston City Hall. Right-wing troll, Milo Yiannopoulos, is apparently serving
as the Grand Marshal. Now the group which did recently get sent some mysterious envelopes that actually turned out to be just full of glitter, insists they are not an anti-gay movement. John Hugo, President of
Super Happy Fun America, said “We’re not anti-gay,
we’re pro-straight. “We’re a sexual orientation advocacy group “and we’re a young civil rights movement.” That’s cute, but let’s look at that. I don’t recall anybody making any attempts to restrict the civil
rights of straight people. I don’t see anything that indicates that straight people are
targeted for beatings or murder or any of those sorts of things. I don’t really know what
exactly they’re advocating or what exactly it is
that they are fighting in terms of a civil rights movement. It just seems to me that the only reason for this is because it’s a lot of guys who are a little insecure about themselves and they feel the need
to create this parade which does nothing but
dehumanize and humiliate and poke fun at the very
people they claim not to hate. The State of Florida is
going to war with iguanas. The population of the
green reptiles has exploded according to the State’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. So they want residents to kill them. The FWC encourages homeowners
to kill green iguanas on their own property whenever possible. Labeling these creatures as invasive, authorities also noted
that people are allowed to kill green iguanas if they see them in as many as 22 different
public locations. Now before you start
goin’ crazy and thinking this is a really extreme reaction, they’re not exactly that harmless. Apparently they cause a lot of problems with our agriculture, they
cause problems on the roads. They can actually impact
the power in the area, and in fact, transformers. Not really quite sure
how any of that works, but I suppose maybe they eat the wiring. Officials also say that iguanas
can transmit salmonella, and apparently are an FAA safety hazard. One of the reasons they seem to think that there’s an explosion
in the iguana population is because normally
cold weather would keep the population low, but
because the weather there has been so warm for the past year or so, the population of iguanas has
apparently been on the rise. So good hunting Floridians
and stay safe out there. (paper crinkling) That’s this week’s episode. Thank you for watching. And if you enjoyed it, please hit that like button down below, and please share this
episode with your friends, your family, your coworkers, and even that guy down the street that you really can’t stand but you end up talking to him anyway, because he’s always standing outside of his house, and every time you walk by he has to start a conversation. You know that guy. You all live near that guy. (bright music)

Look, I never understand the term… “Weakness words”, until I heard, COCKROACHES, Ehwowoowheheheh… You know, those creatures created by our Almighty Father (and thee heavens
above…) [choir and trumpets intensifies] Why did you gave them the ability to uhm… F L Y?! WHY?! Look, yes, cockroaches are one of the most
greatest yet scariest insects… OF HUMANITY! Why? Let me pin point some of scientific facts,
boi! This channel will become scientifically-educational. Science Fact #1 According to the Wikipedia… (Legit, I am shocked, not joking…) *inhales and exhales for some composure* They are one responsible for decomposing… +100 for disgusting score please!
(Also, we have some easter eggs here…wink wink) DESGOSTENG! And one, last disgusting science of all the
most… Either they can fly and can give birth to
tons of their future generation… (Sarcasm alert!) I hate nature sometimes… Lord, what happened to our biodiversity? Us humans, have fear on your creations, yes! Why did you just gave them the ability to
fly?! They flew right into me like some of a butterfly
who is so proud of their ability to fly… Like if you are just a butterfly, yes, I’ll
let you fly to me but you’re a cockroach! You bring many bacteria! WHYYY— Well, in conclusion, the cockroaches are after
all, useful… Even they are so scary and disgusting… They are very useful to our biodiversity.
(Mother Nature) So if you saw a cockroach, let them be
and let their decomposing job, do the rest. Hmmm…endcard is here! (again…) Well…this is actually recorded after New
Year, so belated Happy New Year to you all! And also, this is my “very” first storytime. Welp, like and share the video and subscribe
to my channel! (I hope I see you on my next videos.) And be the Eddest amongst the rest!

Cockroaches, Alligators & Other Weird Sources of New Drugs

Cockroaches, Alligators & Other Weird Sources of New Drugs


Antibiotics are one of humankind’s most amazing
discoveries. Ever since that fateful day in 1928 when Scottish physician Alexander Fleming
noticed a funny mold growing in one of his petri dishes, antibiotics have been kicking
bacterial butt. That famous mold, of course, was producing
penicillin, the founding antibiotic superstar, which has since extended the average human
life by at least a decade. It fundamentally changed the face of medicine. Antibiotics,
or antimicrobials, are basically selective poisons designed to either kill or slow the
growth of bacteria to the point where your body’s own immune system can clean up. These
drugs target a specific part of bacteria or some important stage in their development
without damaging the body’s host cells. And they’re really great their job. Until they
aren’t. Lately, antibiotic technology has been having
a hard time keeping pace with bacterial evolution. We’ve talked here on SciShow about how lots
of your die-hard, go-to favorite antibiotics are starting to lose their mojo in the face
of sneaky and rapidly evolving bacteria. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
estimates that at least 2,000,000 Americans became infected with drug-resistant bacteria
in 2012, and 23,000 of them died as a result. These superbugs are deadly serious and could
quickly unleash a global health crisis if we don’t find a way to keep them in check.
The problem is we’ve already hit up many of the most obvious sources of antibiotics, like
fungi, which includes penicillin, and synthetic molecules.
Fortunately, we humans have big, delicious brains, and some of the best of them are hard
at work trying to invent all-new ways to kill dangerous bacteria or find other organisms
on the planet that are better at it than we are so we can steal their secrets. And while
they’re finding some promising leads, I gotta say, they’re looking in some pretty weird
places. [Intro] You know how everyone jokes that after some
big global disaster, only cockroaches will survive? Well, we recently found what may
partially explain their famous, and infuriating, tenacity. Research from the University of
Nottingham suggests that certain insects, like roaches and locusts, have brain tissues
that are infused with super-powered antibiotic juju. The researchers found nine different
antibiotic molecules tucked into the roaches’ nervous systems that may be protecting them
from otherwise lethal bacteria. They’re all a type of molecule known as peptides, short
chains of amino acids that make up proteins, kinda like proto-proteins. And these peptides
are specific to the bugs’ brains. They seem to be chemicals that roaches” brain cells
use to communicate with each other, y’know, whenever a cockroach is sitting around thinking
about stuff, which I guess can happen, and although we’re not sure how these peptides
actually work, laboratory tests have shown that they’re incredibly effective at eliminating
some of our least favorite bacteria, like the most dangerous strains of e.coli, which
cause gastrointestinal infections. And even MRSA, a super-resistant type of staphylococcus
bacterium that can cause unstoppable deadly infections in humans, particularly in hospitals.
In lab trials, these roach brain molecules killed over 90% of MRSA bacteria, without
harming any host cells. So I can guess what you’re thinking: shut
up and take my money! Well, hold on a sec, because we’re a bit away from having cockroach
brains on the pharmacy shelves. There’s still loads of technical hurdles to overcome, tests
to conduct, basic things we need to figure out, like how exactly these molecules work.
But roaches aren’t the only hardy animals out there. Alligators are some of the Earth’s
most rugged beasts. They essentially live in cesspool swamps teeming with bacteria and
fungus and other microbes, and more than that, they’re known brawlers. Put just a few territorial
800 pound toothy reptiles together in a dirty swamp, and you will no doubt come out with
some serious bite marks and bloody wounds, even missing limbs. But amazingly, what you
probably won’t find are any infections. This got some bayou scientists to thinkin’!
Dr. Mark Merchant, a biochemist at McNeese State University in Louisiana, helped conduct
a decade long study that investigated what makes alligators so unusually resistant to
bacterial and fungal infection. Turns out, it’s in their blood. An alligator’s
immune system is largely innate, meaning it can fight off harmful micro-organisms without
having any prior exposure to them. They just pop right out of their eggs ready to do battle.
We humans also have some innate immunity, provided by things like our skin and white
blood cells, but a big part of our immunities are adaptive, meaning we often develop a resistance
to specific diseases only after being exposed to them. Which of course is not ideal all
the time, but alligators get to skip this step. Researchers examining blood samples from American
alligators isolated their infection fighting white blood cells and then extracted the active
proteins working in those cells. And these two included a special class of peptides which
seemed to have a knack for weakening the membranes of bacteria, causing them to die. When pitted
against a wide range of bacteria including drug-resistant MRSA, these tough little peptides
proved to be effective killers. They also wiped out 6 of 8 strains of candida albicans,
a type of yeast infection that’s particularly troublesome for AIDS and transplant patients
with weakened immune systems. Such compounds may also be found in similar animals, like
crocodiles, Komodo dragons, and the skins of some frogs and toads. So far, lab trials
have shown that gator blood can kill at least 23 different strains of bacteria including
salmonella, e.coli, staph, and strep infections AND even a strain of HIV. For now, scientists
are working to find the exact chemical structures at work in four of these promising chemicals
and pinpoint which types are best at killing which microbes. One problem so far: high concentrations
of gator blood serum have already been found to be so powerful that they are toxic to human
cells. So other biologists are taking a different approach in the search for the next generation
of antibiotics. Rather than looking at other animals, they’re
exploring strange, new places, like cave soils and deep-sea sediments. Researchers have recently
discovered evidence of promising new fungi strains living way down in hundred million
year old nutrient-starved sediments in the Pacific Ocean. Everyone thought this was a
near-dead zone for life, too harsh and remote an environment for something like fungi to
survive in. Just a decade ago, the only living things known to inhabit such deep sediment
layers were single-celled bacteria and archaea, organisms known to flourish in extreme environments.
But while examining dredged up sediments from as deep as 127 meters into the sea floor,
scientists found fungi of at least eight different types, four of which they successfully cultured
in the lab. Some of the fungi even belonged to the genus Penicillium, which we have to
thank for the development of penicillin. Now, we’re not exactly sure how old these fungi
are, but they are definitely quite old and maybe, more importantly, they appear to have
been living in isolation for eons. If that’s the case, they may have evolved specific and
unusual defenses against bacteria, which, just like their penicillin kin in that famous
petri dish, could end up being a new and powerful source of antibiotics.
And there’s one more strategy that scientists are using, one that works in espionage as
well as in medicine. And that is seeing what the enemy is up to.
While exploring life in strange new places around the world, some biologists are looking
for bacteria that have never been exposed to our drugs, but still appear to be naturally
resistant to them. Wherever we find the most naturally resistant
bacteria, we might also find natural antibiotics that we never knew about.
And here, one of the most promising leads is again in one of the hardest-to-reach places:
New Mexico’s Lechuguilla cave, a place that was isolated from all human contact until
it was discovered in the 1980’s. One of the many fascinating things that scientists
have discovered here is that the cave bacteria seem to be resistant to everything.
Even though they’ve never been exposed to us or our drugs, all of the bacteria have
proven to be resistant to at least one major antibiotic, and many tend to fend off more
than a dozen of the most powerful antimicrobials we have. This suggests to scientists that
the bacteria have evolved to be this way because they live in an environment that’s rich in
naturally occurring antibiotics, ones that the germs we live with up here on the surface
have never encountered. Now we just have to find out what exactly
those compounds are. So look, I’m not going to lie to you: we have
a lot of work to do. While we might discover a new super-drug lurking
in a cave or under the sea or in a cockroach’s head, there’s a big difference between finding
a substance that cleans house in a petri dish and actually putting a new antibiotic in the
vein of a human patient. So the bummer is, as promising as some of
these bold new discoveries may be, none of them has yet yielded an actual marketable
drug. Still, there’s a long list of successful antibiotics
that we’ve managed to derive from strange sources, starting with Dr. Fleming’s rogue
fungus. So if we keep exploring strange new places
and studying how other animals deal with the problems we’re facing, we just might find
the next penicillin before the superbugs get the best of us. Thanks for watching this SciShow Infusion,

Cockroach Facts

Cockroach Facts


Hello again!
If you don’t know much about cockroaches, that’s about to change. In October 2005, designer Jared Gold designed
broaches from live cockroaches, decorated with Austrian Swarovski crystal. However,
these broach roaches come with care instructions, allowing them to live for about one year as
pets. When on jewelry duty, the roaches were attached by a min-leash to clothing where
they could wander. Jared Gold said, “You kind of bond with the little buddy. They like
the warmth and they tickle you. Everyone has a good time.” Former rat catcher Ken Edwards of Derbyshire,
known for his 47-rats-down-the-pants trick, holds the record for Most Cockroaches Eaten
in one minute – 36. He said it was like having an anesthetic at the back of the throat.
Video here of when he earlier only ate 24. Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an
hour. To capitalize on this, in Australia, there is an Annual Cockroach Racing Championship
for Australia Day. The race is held January 26 in Story Bridge Hotel in Brisbane . Some
participant comments: “”It’s great, we’ve taken one of our national animals and made
it into a mascot, after all they’re as much a part of Australia as the koala or kangaroo
and far more common.” Video here. It is not true that cockroaches will be the
only survivors of a nuclear blast. While they are about six to fifteen times more resilient
to radiation than humans, other insects like fruit flies, flour beetles.
A cockroach is pretty hardy though. It is able to hold its breath for 40 minutes and
can survive a stopped heart. A roach can also live for a week without its head because a
cockroaches brain is spread throughout its entire body. At the end of the week, it dies
of thirst. Feeling a bit worried there’s roaches in your
house? Well don’t worry, the young ones only need a crack as thin as a dime to hide in.
But if you want to see cockroaches in their own home, check out University of South Carolina
Roach Cam. (link below.) But be forewarned, roaches do spend up to 75 percent of their
time resting. Thank you for your time, and thank you for
watching.
