first_imgResearchers have discovered in fruit flies a key metabolic hormone thought to be the exclusive property of vertebrates. The hormone, leptin, is a nutrient sensor, regulating energy intake and output and ultimately controlling appetite. As such, it is of keen interest to researchers investigating obesity and diabetes on the molecular level. But until now, complex mammals such as mice have been the only models for investigating the mechanisms of this critical hormone. These new findings suggest that fruit flies can provide significant insights into the molecular underpinnings of fat sensing.“Leptin is very complex,” said Akhila Rajan, first author on the paper and a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Norbert Perrimon, James Stillman Professor of Developmental Biology at Harvard Medical School. “These types of hormones acquire more and more complex function as they evolve. Here in the fly we’re seeing leptin in its most likely primitive form.”These findings appear September 28 in Cell. Read Full Storylast_img read more

first_imgAge: 23Hometown: Edmond, OKCurrent Role: A tap-happy performance as Ruby, a fresh-off-the-bus Broadway wannabe who becomes a bona fide star, in Dames at Sea.Stage Cred: A fairly recent New York transplant, Kropp has already made her Broadway debut in the recent revival of On the Town as well as racked up credits in Little Me and Most Happy Fella at Encores! Her regional credits include Carousel at Goodspeed and Grease at the Paper Mill Playhouse.”I started dance in the opposite order of what most people do: I began with tap when I was eight and later added jazz and ballet. I didn’t know you could do it as a profession until I was a teenager. I thought I would be a doctor.””My first paycheck was $92.35 for being an apprentice at the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma. I was 16 and my parents let me do it because I could drive myself. It was the first time I thought I could [be a professional perfomer]. I made the big bucks all summer.””I left the University of Oklahoma my junior year. I was hired to do Tuck Everlasting, which was supposed to come to Broadway. I made a decision to move here, and then the show didn’t end up happening. It was a year of growth and figuring things out.””I’m an old movie person. I look up to Eleanor Powell, Vera-Ellen, Gene Kelly and Ginger Rogers. Those were always my inspirations. [Director/choreographer] Randy Skinner actually worked with Ginger Rogers; it’s just crazy. He’s a link to that era.””When my friends see the show, they always say I’m like my character. It’s weird: My journey here hasn’t been long; Ruby walks into a Broadway theater and gets a show. She’s put through the ringer, and then shows everyone she can do it. I relate to her.””I’m always texting people asking, ‘Who wants to get whiskey and French fries?’ That’s my new thing to do after the show. It’s terrible—I’m usually a really healthy eater. My friends are like, ‘Who are you?’ I’m like, ‘It’s fine; I just tap-danced for two hours!'” View Comments Dames at Sea Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 3, 2016 Related Showslast_img read more

first_img March 15, 2006 Regular News Seiler finds common ground Seiler finds common ground Gary Blankenship Senior Editor The letter denoting political affiliation that comes after Jack Seiler’s name is a “D.”But the state representative from Wilton Manors in Broward County said being a Democrat does not define his legislative outlook.“I actually love politics,” he said. “I love the people in the process. I love the debate. I love the discussion. It’s very rewarding.”However, he is quick to add, “I’m not real partisan. One of the reasons I have not been real active with party politics is I don’t particularly like the partisan part of politics. I like working together, finding common ground.”In addition, Seiler said he considers himself a father of four, a husband “to a great wife,” and a lawyer first when he reviews legislation before he considers himself a Democrat. Indeed, it’s not uncommon for a Republican legislator to say he or she had their legislation reviewed by Seiler before it was introduced or while it was being considered in committee. Seiler said he’s glad to do it.“I tend to try to be a little bit of a legislator’s lawyer, where I have some positive impact on the process,” he said. “My rule has always been if it’s a really bad bill try to kill it, if it’s a good bill, do something to make it better, and if it’s a great bill, just get out of the way.”That, again, comes from his views of the process and the people he deals with, and his love of politics.“There are some great people in this process. To get to the House of Representatives, to get to the Senate, to get to the upper tier of the executive and judicial branches, they are quality people,” he said. “It’s no different than taking a deposition in a really good lawsuit — you look around and see four or five really good lawyers in the room. Eighty percent of the people in this process are quality people, regardless of party.”But his willingness to work with others doesn’t mean Seiler is silent on issues. During a recent House Judicial Committee debate on a bill to repeal the last vestiges of joint and several liability, Seiler was an outspoken critic of the measure.Proponents of the bill argued it was unfair that tort defendants should be forced to pay any more than their percentage of fault, as determined by a judge or jury. (A 1999 bill had already eliminated joint and several for noneconomic damages and limited it for economic damages in many cases.)Seiler offered two amendments. The first would eliminate more than 70 non-tort uses of joint and several liability in Florida Statutes. The second would have ended all damage caps and immunities provided in state law, except for sovereign immunity. Seiler argued if joint and several liability was bad for tort cases, then it should be removed from all statutory provisions. Likewise, if bill proponents argued that defendants should be responsible only for the damage they cause, then there should be no caps or immunities in the statute that relieve them of that responsibility.He withdrew both amendments when it was apparent they had no chance to pass the committee, but they allowed Seiler to make his points.In this year’s session, Seiler predicts the issues of most interest to lawyers will include tort bills, including premises liability, and potential constitutional amendments. The latter includes an effort to streamline the constitution by removing outdated provisions and perhaps making some sections statutory instead of constitutional, and a possible amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Bush v. Holmes on vouchers.“I think joint and several is going to come up for a vote. I think you’re going to see an all out fight on the floor of the Senate,” Seiler said. “It will pass the House, despite my opposition.”The constitutional amendments cause Seiler much concern. While he supports an amendment that would require two-thirds of the voters to approve an amendment that has a significant financial impact on the state budget, he questions other efforts.“When we start saying, ‘Well, we’re going to require a super majority for something to be heard’ and saying, ‘Well, we’re going to move certain things to the statutes and we’ll decide what’s best for you,’ that’s not necessarily the best approach,” Seiler said. “The constitution doesn’t belong to the Republicans and it doesn’t belong to the Democrats. It doesn’t belong to the House and it doesn’t belong to the Senate. It belongs to all Floridians. And I think we ought to handle it with the utmost respect.”Politics has always been an interest of Seilers. “I think I was class president from the first grade through my sophomore year,” he said with a laugh. His nickname in the seventh grade was Senator Seiler, he was class treasurer for his junior year, and then class president as a senior.At Notre Dame, he was president of the largest dorm on campus.Seiler got his law degree from the University of Miami in 1988, and shortly thereafter was appointed to the Board of Adjustment in Wilton Manors. In 1993, he was elected to the Wilton Manors City Council, and he served as vice mayor from 1996-98 and as mayor from 1998-2000.That year he was elected to the legislature, and has been reelected since. He has filed for reelection this year, but is term-limited from running again in 2008. After that, “I will kind of wait and see,” he said. “I’ve taken the approach I’m not going to run statewide for office until my kids are a little older. I love that role as a father. I will definitely stay active in politics. But to tell you what that elected position is, I couldn’t.”The legislative respite will also allow Seiler, who maintains a full-time trial practice at Seiler, Sautter, Zaden & Rimes, more time for his professional work.last_img read more
