Cairde na hÉireann (Irish: Friends of Ireland) is a republican organisation in Scotland best known for the annual James Connolly march through the streets of Edinburgh and for the Bloody Sunday march each January in Glasgow, both of which no longer take place. Since then the organisation has focused more in its anti-racism campaign and its other stated aims.

Aims and principles[edit]
Membership of Cairde na hÉireann is open to anyone regardless of faith, race, sex, sexuality, or nationality. The stated aims of Cairde na hÉireann are to:[1]

campaign for a united Ireland;
support sister organisations in Ireland;
promote a new Ireland based on the principles of justice and equality;
support initiatives aimed at improving the material conditions of the Irish community in Scotland
campaign against racism and sectarianism.

The group in a submission to the Scottish Executive estimated in 2005 that it represents around 1,000 people, including 300 from the James Connolly society and a number of flute bands with between 10 and 20 members each. 30 people had attended their recent marches in Coatbridge.[1]
History[edit]
Cairde na hÉireann was formed as a split from the West of Scotland Band Alliance (WoSBA) in 2004. The WoSBA are considered supporters of dissident Republicans and are not recognised by Sinn Féin.[2]
In their first official statement to An Phoblacht (Republican News, Sinn Féin’s official monthly newspaper), Cairde na hÉireann said that their main aim is to concentrate on building a political base that would prove itself in the Scottish Parliament[citation needed]. They are organised throughout Scotland and northern England. They have demonstrations and marches all over Scotland and use these events as a platform to spread their pro-Irish nationalist message.
Marches and controversy[edit]
The organisation has been involved in discussions with the Scottish Executive over proposals to restrict and regulate marches in Scotland. The group’s national organiser at the time, Jim Slavin, said: “I think vetoes and banning marches is not the solution, I think dialogue is a solu

History[edit]
Jason Wang serves as the company’s CEO and president. He and his family come from Xi’an, one of the oldest cities in China with more than 3100 years of history. Born in Xi’an, Wang reminisces about the food that his grandfather cooked when he was young. Once Wang and his family moved to the U.S., the yearning for home flavors inspired Wang and his father to make dishes with his grandfather’s secret sauce recipes.[2] They felt that there were people like themselves who missed the cuisine of their hometown.
Before Xi’an Famous Foods existed, Jason Wang’s father started a bubble tea shop, which sold food on the side, in Flushing, Queens. Meanwhile, Wang was in college at Washington University in St. Louis, but came home during breaks to help his father in the shop.[3] They soon realized that their food sold better than their bubble tea beverages, so in late 2005, they moved their shop to the basement of Flushing’s Golden Shopping Mall and called it Xi’an Famous Foods.[4]
After Wang graduated in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in business, he worked in corporate for a short time, but then decided to focus on co-founding his family food business with his father. From that moment, Wang and his father continued expanding their

Photoacoustic imaging

Schematic illustration of photoacoustic imaging.

Photoacoustic imaging (optoacoustic imaging) is a biomedical imaging modality based on the photoacoustic effect. In photoacoustic imaging, non-ionizing laser pulses are delivered into biological tissues (when radio frequency pulses are used, the technology is referred to as thermoacoustic imaging). Some of the delivered energy will be absorbed and converted into heat, leading to transient thermoelastic expansion and thus wideband (i.e. MHz) ultrasonic emission. The generated ultrasonic waves are detected by ultrasonic transducers and then analyzed to produce images. It is known that optical absorption is closely associated with physiological properties, such as hemoglobin concentration and oxygen saturation.[1] As a result, the magnitude of the ultrasonic emission (i.e. photoacoustic signal), which is proportional to the local energy deposition, reveals physiologically specific optical absorption contrast. 2D or 3D images of the targeted areas can then be formed.[2] Fig. 1 is a schematic illustration showing the basic principles of photoacoustic imaging.

Biomedical imaging[edit]

Fig. 2. Absorption spectra of oxy- and deoxy-hemoglobin.

The optical absorption in biological tissues can be due to endogenous molecules such as hemoglobin or melanin, or exogenously delivered contrast agents. As an example, Fig. 2 shows the optical absorption spectra of oxygenated hemoglobin (HbO2) and deoxygenated hemoglobin (Hb) in the visible and near infrared region.[3] Since blood usually has orders of magnitude higher absorption than surrounding tissues, there is sufficient endogenous contrast for photoacoustic imaging to visualize blood vessels. Recent studies have shown that photoacoustic imaging can be used in vivo for tumor angiogenesis monitoring, blood oxygenation mapping, functional brain imaging, skin melanoma detection, methemoglobin measuring, etc.[2]

Early life[edit]
McLane grew up watching professional wrestling on television with his older brothers and attended live events in his hometown of Indianapolis. As a teenager he launched the Dick the Bruiser Fan Club, selling photographs of the wrestling star and other local professional wrestlers through mail order.[2] Bruiser brought McLane in to work in the office of Bruiser’s Indianapolis-based wrestling promotion World Wrestling Association (WWA). There he learned the ropes of promotion and marketing, eventually became the ring announcer and match commentator.[3]
While continuing to work for the WWA, McLane started his own promotional company to promote live events and concerts throughout the Midwest, including the stadium presentation of the Budweiser Country Concert Tour and marketing of such groups as New Edition[4] in select markets.
While looking at other ideas to promote, McLane pushed for more serious storylines among the women wrestlers of the promotion including Princess Jasmine and Candi Devine.
Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling[edit]
McLane began the first-ever all women’s wrestling television program in 1986, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). GLOW was a syndication ratings success, achieving superior ratings to the WWF’s syndicated Superstars series, which launched at the same time and was frequently shown in adjacent timeslots on the same stations.

Ganglioside

This article needs attention from an expert on the subject. Please add a reason or a talk parameter to this template to explain the issue with the article. Consider associating this request with a WikiProject. (July 2013)

Structure of GM1 ganglioside

A ganglioside is a molecule composed of a glycosphingolipid (ceramide and oligosaccharide) with one or more sialic acids (e.g. n-acetylneuraminic acid, NANA) linked on the sugar chain. NeuNAc, an acetylated derivative of the carbohydrate sialic acid, makes the head groups of gangliosides anionic at pH 7, which distinguishes them from globosides.
The name ganglioside was first applied by the German scientist Ernst Klenk in 1942 to lipids newly isolated from ganglion cells of the brain.[1] More than 60 gangliosides are known, which differ from each other mainly in the position and number of NANA residues. It is a component of the cell plasma membrane that modulates cell signal transduction events, and appears to concentrate in lipid rafts[citation needed].
Recently, gangliosides have been found to be highly important molecules in immunology. Natural and semisynthetic gangliosides are considered possible therapeutics for neurodegenerative disorders.[2]

Location[edit]
Gangliosides are present and concentrated on cell surfaces, with the two hydrocarbon chains of the ceramide moiety embedded in the plasma membrane and the oligosaccharides located on the extracellular surface, where they present points of recognition for extracellular molecules or surfaces of neighboring cells. They are found predominantly in the nervous system where they constitute 6% of all phospholipids.[3]
Function[edit]
The oligosaccharide groups on gangliosides extend well beyond the surfaces of the cell membranes, and act as distinguishing surface markers that can serve as specific determinants in cellular recognition and cell-to-cell communication. These carbohydrate head groups also act as specific receptors for certain pituitary glycoprotein hormones and certain bacterial protein toxins such as cholera toxin.
The functions of gangliosides as specific determinants suggest its important role in the growth and differentiation of tissues as well as in carcinogenesis. It has been found that tumor formation can induce the synthesis of a new complement of ganglioside, and very low concentr

Maria B. Dwight is an American activist[3] with a particular focus on improving lives for the aging and elderly, particularly regarding housing issues.[4] She is a planner of multicultural communities as well as a consultant notable for having a center in Holyoke named after her called the Maria B. Dwight Geriatric and Rehabilitation Center in 1977.[3] Her views on issues affecting the elderly have been quoted in USA Today[1][5] and the New York Times.[6] She works in Santa Monica, California.
Regarding the issue of the elderly and community, she said:


This old idea of being born in a town that you grow up in and know everybody is quite absent now … The whole concept of community has changed dramatically in the last few decades, and now people are looking for ways to socialize. Instead of sitting around growing old and moaning, they want to talk about plays, where they traveled, and be with people who like the same thing. If traditional housing providers don’t create these options, you’re going to see people doing it on their own. — Maria Dwight, 2007[6]

Dwight has commented on issues relating to the gay community regarding aging; she said that gay men and lesbians are often closer to gay “families of choice” rather than to their biological families and she finds a strong need for communities to serve the elderly population in urban areas.[1] She contributed $200 to oppose a ban on gay marriage according to the Los Angeles Times.[7] She believes that as the baby boomer generation moves into retirement, there will be a “two-class society” and that boomers will be agents of change regarding the health care system.[5] She said:


I don’t think the boomers have a clue what they will want when they are old. I don’t think many people do. It will be a service-oriented society and it will be a two-class society. I think the first time the boomers ever bump
