|LODNON Cheap Adarius Glanton Jersey , Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The first summit of sports ministers will meet on December 9 to explore ideas for developing a G20 agenda on sport during the second annual Doha GOALS Forum, to be held on December 9-11 at the Aspire Academy in Doha.
The debate will take place on the first day of the global Forum with Sports Ministers from more than 20 countries and regions, including South Africa, Brazil, Mexico and Italy. The summit will be chaired by Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser Al Ali, Minister of Youth and Sports in Qatar Cheap Jacquizz Rodgers Jersey , and facilitated by Mandelson, Chairman of Global Counsel and former EU Trade Commissioner, and Richard Attias, executive producer of Doha GOALS and executive chairman of Richard Attias & Associates.
Al Ali said: "We look forward to hosting more than 20 Ministers of Sport in Doha. We look forward to sharing ideas on how government departments can integrate sport into economic, social, education and health policy Cheap Patrick Murray Jersey , as well as discussing how we can collaborate better across borders to promote transparency in sport and to fight corruption."
The theme for the Summit is Integrity in Sport, focusing on the promotion of fairness and equality in sports. The discussion aims to create the first ever Ministers of Sport Agenda, which will be presented to the Doha GOALS community during the official opening session in front of heads of state and VIPs.
As well as the Summit's closed sessions, which organizers hope will lead to new policy commitments from the ministers present, there will also be sessions open to observers, taking contributions from the private sector Cheap Chris Baker Jersey , civil society, government leaders and NGOs.
Among guest participants will also include Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations and Prince Nawaf bin Faisal bin Fahd Al Saud, President of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee.
The Summit will cover a wide variety of issues including how countries can develop equal opportunities to participate and progress in sport; how to use sporting events to drive economic growth and reform; and how sport can drive technological innovation and boost investment in digital infrastructure.
Mandelson, who will lead some of the Summit discussions, said: "The Ministers of Sport Summit is a significant development in trying to create policy to form the basis of an emerging G20 agenda on sport. Doha GOALS has proved to be an important platform for addressing sport's role in many countries' national growth strategies."
Attias said: "Sport should be an integral component of economic Cheap T.J. Ward Jersey , education and health policy - the benefits and momentum that sport can bring are wide-ranging, whether it is increased participation for young children, or sport as a tool for urban regeneration. We are delighted to host so many Ministers, of which many are from African countries and emerging markets, to share ideas on how sport can contribute to economic growth and social progress."
Now in its second year, Doha GOALS is the world's leading platform focusing on sport as a driver of social and economic change. Sporting legends already set to speak at Doha GOALS 2013 include Olympic gold-medalist Michael Johnson Cheap Ali Marpet Jersey , Jonathan Edwards and Pamela Jelimo, gold-medal winning gymnasts Nadia Comaneci and Bart Conner; triple Paralympic high jump champion, Hou Bin, six-time Grand Slam tennis winner Boris Becker and indoor 800 and 1000 meters world record holder Wilson Kipketer.
HONG KONG, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- A compound named NP16 that can inhibit methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was found in a study done by the University of Hong Kong which made the results public on Thursday.
Conventionally, antibiotics are used to cure bacteria Cheap Donovan Smith Jersey , which, however, seems not to be an effective and sustainable way of controlling infections and may lead to the problem of drug resistance.
The university's research team started to look for new strategies to combat antimicrobial resistance in 2009. By using a chemical genetics screening facility, researchers screened more than 50,000 structurally diverse small molecule compounds to identify compounds reducing the virulence of MRSA.
The team recently found that NP16 show strong inhibition on the production of staphyloxanthin, the golden-coloured pigment in Staphylococcus aureus Cheap Noah Spence Jersey , which has been known for its ability to promote bacterial invasion.
Richard Kao Yi-tsun, Associate Professor of Department of Microbiology of the university, said that NP16 does not kill the bacteria, but disarm them and reduce their invasion ability, so that they can easily be cleared by the immune system, which Cheap Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey , therefore, will not trigger the antidrug problem.
"Our approach of employing non-antibiotic drugs to treat MRSA infections by disarming the defensive shield of invading pathogens has offered new hope and new strategies for the treatment of bacterial infections related to multidrug resistant pathogens," Kao said.
This is the world's first study to apply chemical genetics to tackle MRSA infection, which has won the 1st Prize of the Innovation Academy Award in the 4th International Conference on Prevention & Infection Control (ICPIC 2017) in Geneva, Switzerland.
The findings of the study were published in mBio, the top international scientific journal in the field of Microbiology Cheap Kendell Beckwith Jersey , in September 2017.
