    National Institutes of Health Officials Highlight COVID-19 Vaccine Facts, Unknowns for Healthcare Providers | site |



    (Information included in a National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) news release dated: January 18, 2021)

    Healthcare providers must be able to explain the latest data supporting the safety and efficacy of vaccines for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) so they can strongly encourage vaccination when appropriate while acknowledging that uncertainty and unknowns remain. This message comes from a new commentary co-authored by Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, and other leading NIAID scientists in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. The commentary provides an overview of the seven COVID-19 vaccines furthest along in development in the United States. For each vaccine candidate, the authors des

  • NTSB Issues 14 Safety Recommendations Following Investigation of Natural Gas Explosion

    National Transportation Safety Board Issues 14 Safety Recommendations Following Investigation of Natural Gas Explosion | site |




    (Information contained in National Transportation Safety Board [NTSB] press release dated: January 12, 2021)

    Washington (Jan. 12, 2021) — The National Transportation Safety Board issued 14 safety recommendations during a board meeting held Tuesday in which the agency determined the probable cause for the Feb. 23, 2018, natural gas explosion in a Dallas, TX, home. One person died and four others were injured in the explosion at 3534 Espanola Drive, that caused major structural damage to the one-story residence. The NTSB determined that the ignition of an accumulation of natural gas that leaked from the gas main that was damaged during a sewer replacement project 23 years earlier, led to the explosion. Atmos Energy Corporation failed to detect the leak when responding to related incidents at two other homes on th...

    Commerce Adds China National Offshore Oil Corporation to the Entity List and Skyrizon to the Military End-User List | site |





    (Information contained in U.S. Department of Commerce press release dated: January 14, 2021)

    Today, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) in the Department of Commerce (Commerce) added Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to the Entity List and Chinese company Skyrizon to the Military End-User (MEU) List. Both companies threaten U.S. national security, CNOOC by helping China intimidate neighbors in the South China Sea and Skyrizon for its capability to develop, produce, or maintain military items, such as military aircraft engines. “China’s reckless and belligerent actions in the South China Sea and its aggressive push to acquire sensitive intellectual property and technology for its militarization efforts are a threat to U.S. national security and the security of the international community,...

    National Taxpayer Advocate delivers Annual Report to Congress; focuses on Taxpayer Impact of COVID-19 and IRS Funding needs | site |



    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release: January 13, 2021)

    Washington - - National Taxpayer Advocate Erin M. Collins today released her 2020 Annual Report to Congress, focusing on the unprecedented challenges taxpayers faced in filing their tax returns and receiving refunds and stimulus payments during a year consumed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The report also finds that a roughly 20% inflation-adjusted reduction in the IRS's budget since fiscal year (FY) 2010 has left the agency with antiquated technology and inadequate staffing levels to meet taxpayers' needs.

    As part of the report, Collins released the fourth edition of the National Taxpayer Advocate's "Purple Book," a compilation of 66 legislative recommendations designed to strengthen taxpayer rights and

    National Institutes of Health Scientists identify Nutrient that helps prevent Bacterial Infection | site |



    Taurine, which helps the body digest fats and oils, could offer treatment benefit.



    (Information contained in National Institutes of Health [NIH] press release: January 15, 2021)

    Scientists studying the body’s natural defenses against bacterial infection have identified a nutrient — taurine — that helps the gut recall prior infections and kill invading bacteria, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae (Kpn). The finding, published in the journal Cell by scientists from five institutes of the National Institutes of Health, could aid efforts seeking alternatives to antibiotics. Scientists know that microbiota — the trillions of beneficial microbes living harmoniously inside our gut — can protect people from bacterial infections, but little is known about how they provide protection. Scientists are studying the microbiota ...

    (Information contained in National Institutes of Health [NIH] press release: January 13, 2021)

    Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium bacteria (S. Typhimurium) commonly cause human gastroenteritis, inflammation of the lining of the intestines. The bacteria live inside the gut and can infect the epithelial cells that line its surface. Many studies have shown that Salmonella use a “run-and-tumble” method of short swimming periods (runs) punctuated by tumbles when they randomly change direction, but how they move within the gut is not well understood.

    (Information contained in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration [NHTSA] press release: December 22, 2020)

    December 22, 2020 | Washington, DC - - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reminding consumers that, starting January 1, 2021, odometer disclosures will be required for every transfer of ownership for the first 20 years, beginning with Model Year 2011 vehicles. Model Year 2010 and older vehicles will continue to be subject to the previous 10-year disclosure requirements and thus are exempt from extended Federal odometer disclosure requirements. The U.S. fleet of vehicles is, on average, older than ever, and NHTSA finalized this rule late last year to address an increase in odometer fraud involving older vehicles.

    NIST says New JILA Tools ‘Turn On’ Quantum Gases of Ultracold Molecules

    National Institute of Standards and Technology says New JILA Tools ‘Turn On’ Quantum Gases of Ultracold Molecules | site |



    (Information contained in National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] press release: December 9, 2020)


    JILA researchers have developed tools to “turn on” quantum gases of ultracold molecules, gaining control of long-distance molecular interactions for potential applications such as encoding data for quantum computing and simulations.

    The new scheme for nudging a molecular gas down to its lowest energy state, called quantum degeneracy, while suppressing chemical reactions that break up molecules finally makes it possible to explore exotic quantum states in which all the molecules interact with one another.

    The research is described in a Nature paper published online Dec. 9. JILA is a joint institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University
