WASHINGTON http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … don-jersey , April 10 (Xinhua) -- A 20-year-old U.S. man was charged on Friday with planning a suicide bomb attack at a U.S. army base near Manhattan, Kansas, in an alleged plot to support the extremist group the Islamic State (IS), the U.S. Justice Department said.

John T. Booker Jr. of Topeka faces three charges, including one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and one count of attempting to provide material support to the IS, said a statement by the Justice Department.

According to the statement http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … ice-jersey , Booker was arrested Friday morning near Manhattan, as he completed his final preparations to detonate a vehicle bomb targeting U.S. military personnel at the Army base Fort Riley.

The statement said Booker allegedly told another that he chose Fort Riley as a target, "because the post is famous and there are a lot of soldiers stationed there."

It is alleged that Booker repeatedly stated that he desired to engage in violent jihad on behalf of IS and had taken a series of actions to advance his plot over a period of months, the statement said.

"As alleged in the complaint, John Booker attempted to attack U. S. military personnel on U.S. soil purportedly in the name of ISIL, " said Assistant Attorney General Carlin http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … her-jersey , referring to the group's another widely used acronym.

If convicted, Booker faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 1 (Xinhua) -- A new drug developed by a U. S. firm to treat inflammatory bowel disease has achieved initial success in the Phase I clinical trials, raising hopes to find a cure to related illnesses such as Crohn's disease.

Second Genome, the San Francisco-based pharmaceutical company working on the ground-breaking drug known as SGM-1019, began research four years ago with an exclusive focus on microbiomes http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … son-jersey , the generic name for the 100 trillion bacteria humans host in their bodies.

Microbiomes are believed to play a bigger part than previously expected in the body system, with a delicate balance that, when upset, can trigger certain inflammations and diseases. Through SGM- 1019, researchers hope to inhibit a target that triggers inflammatory bowel disease in intestines.

"SGM-1019 blocks the damaging activity of the microbiome in the intestine," Chief Executive Officer Peter DiLaura told Xinhua. "We have pinpointed a specific protein secreted by certain bacteria that causes the inflammation http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … ney-jersey , and the drug can block this protein' s interaction, reducing inflammation."

Research on microbiome had long been dismissed as minor study by most of the scientific community, since the common thought was that bacteria in human body played a secondary role, mostly pathogenic. The downplay was due to the fact that technology had not allowed researchers to study all of bacteria's properties.

"One of the reasons no one has ever looked into microbiomes is because the study depended on sequencing technology," DiLaura said. "But this technology has now evolved enough for us to look at this component of human biology."

He claimed that Second Genome was the first company to zero in on microbiome's interaction with the body, a field that is now growing and expanding.

"Four years ago we were the first one to start looking into microbiomes and what we found and still find up to this day is tremendously exciting http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … nen-jersey ," he said. "We have been able to identify things that bacteria secrete that (in turn) stimulates the body's mechanism in many different ways."

The company believes there is a specific process that drives many bacteria to secrete substances leading to inflammatory bowel disease, an illness that afflicts over five million people worldwide. Sometimes, according to studies, external factors, such as certain antibiotics or foods, can trigger bacteria to behave differently.

Second Genome has concluded the first tests of Phase I clinical trials http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … haw-jersey , which DiLaura said to be very successful, though he preferred not to disclose percentages of success rates. Second tests will begin this year for the same phase. There is a long way to go to fully understand inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's or Ulcerative colitis, but the study of microbiomes has opened doors.

"We have a program underway to study bacterial interaction in certain metabolic diseases like obesity, as well as airway diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive disease," DiLaura said.

The word Caribbean evokes images of hot tropic lands, colourful cultures http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … lev-jersey , buried treasure and fabulous beaches - in short, the perfect vacation destination. One was to see into the heart of a country is by exploring museums, those treasure houses of a country's past. Here we'll look into the Caribbean world through unique museums in the Bahamas, Barbados and Jamaica.

First,sit the Bahamas, an archipelago of 700 islands and cays. In 1783 the Bahamas became a British colony http://www.montrealcanadiensteamstore.c … yuk-jersey , a status it was to maintain until 1973 when it gained independence.

One of the major themes of the Caribbean is of course pirates and the Bahamas was one of their lairs. This area was once the stomping ground of such buccaneers as Captains Morgan and Kidd who grew rich from the spoils of looting ships. If you want a glimpse into this murky world you can visit the Pirates of Nassau museum which recreates the golden age of piracy (1690-1720).

At the Pirates of Nassau museum you can stroll through the body of a pirate ship eavesdropping on the buccaneers as they plot their next attack. The museum is staffed with pirate impersonators and features its own pub called the Malborough Arms. It's especially great for kids.

Next is Barbados, an island that's part of the Lesser Antilles located northeast of Venezuela. With its tropical climate, pink and white sand beaches, sugarcane plantations and vibrant West Indian culture, Barbados is a deservedl.
