Jay Nixons decision early Monday to deploy National Guard troops to Ferguson would likely exacerbate, not ameliorate, the problem. The police became militarized; I cant see how bringing soldiers in are a very good substitute for the police, he said. The St. Louis County Police Department has received 12 5.56 millimeter rifles, 6 .45-caliber pistols, multiple cargo trailers and utility trucks and night vision equipment from the Pentagon from 2010-2013, according to an official list from the Missouri Department of Public Safety. It also received its helicopter from the military in 2004. The Pentagons Defense Logistics Agency Law Enforcement Support Office, which oversees the program, reports on its website that it has transferred $4.3 billion in military equipment to states and local communities, and more than $449 million in 2013 alone.

Mexico and Brazil are the emerging economies in this segment. The United States New Car Assessment Program (US NCAP) is a flagship consumer information program of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In the coming years, US NCAP will adjust its rating system to reflect the improvements in the safety features of U.S. vehicles. This will make it more stringent for a vehicle to achieve top ratings, thus encouraging manufacturers to produce vehicles exceeding the minimum federal safety requirements. This is expected to positively affect the Night Vision System and Driver Monitoring System Market.

Exposure to light resets less than half of the SCN cells, resulting in long periods of jet lag. In the new study, researchers disrupted the light-dark cycles in mice and compared changes in the expression of thousands of genes in the SCN with other mouse tissues. They identified 213 gene expression changes that were unique to the SCN and narrowed in on 13 of these that coded for molecules that turn on and off other genes. Of those, only one was suppressed in response to light: Lhx1. No one had ever imagined that Lhx1 might be so intricately involved in SCN function, says Shubhroz Gill, a postdoctoral researcher and co-first author of the paper.
