Sep 16, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The FBI plans to ask the National Academy of Sciences to review the bureau’s investigation that led to its conclusion that government microbiologist Bruce E. Ivins committed the 2001 anthrax attacks, FBI Director Robert Mueller III told Congress today.Mueller’s revelation before the House Judiciary Committee comes in the wake of doubts expressed by a number of scientists about the FBI’s findings and calls from several experts for an independent review of the bureau’s work in the case.In an opening statement before the committee hearing, which was webcast, Mueller said the FBI has “initiated discussion with the National Academy of Sciences” about a review of the investigation.Later, in response to questions from Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., Mueller said, “As I indicated, we’re in discussion with and are going to request the National Academy of Sciences to review the work that was done in the course of this investigation.”Ivins died in an apparent suicide Jul 29 as the FBI was preparing to charge him in the attacks, in which anthrax-laced letters mailed to two US senators and several media offices led to 22 illness cases, 5 of them fatal. Ivins had worked at the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) for many years and had done research on anthrax vaccines.The FBI announced on Aug 6 its conclusion that Ivins was to blame. The evidence cited was largely circumstantial, but the agency said scientists had developed a new DNA fingerprinting technique that enabled them to match the mailed anthrax to a batch of anthrax that was in Ivins’ custody at USAMRIID.Since then, a number of disease and biodefense experts have said it is not possible to judge the FBI’s claim about the genetic match without seeing the full scientific details, which have not been released. In addition, a number of observers have raised questions about other aspects of the case, such as how the FBI eliminated a large number of other USAMRIID workers who had access to the anthrax in Ivins’ work area.Another question is whether the anthrax powder used in the attacks was a simple preparation of dried anthrax spores or a special weaponized preparation. Early in the investigation, the FBI suggested that the spores were specially treated to make them spread more easily through the air and into the lungs, implying that it would have been difficult for one person to produce them. But at an Aug 18 press conference, FBI experts said they had determined that making the anthrax was a fairly simple process. They said that silica found in the powder occurred naturally, not as a special additive.Nadler brought up this issue at today’s hearing. Citing a report that silica content higher than 1% in the anthrax would not occur naturally, he asked Mueller, “What was the percent of silica?””I’d have to get back to you on that,” Mueller replied.”If the percent is greater than 1%, it would indicate the anthrax was manipulated,” Nadler said. He said only a “handful” of laboratories could achieve that, and asked Mueller if the FBI had investigated all of those labs and how it ruled them out.”You can assume we looked at every lab in the US and several overseas” that had people and facilities capable of preparing the anthrax powder, Mueller said. But he said would have to get back to Nadler later about how the bureau cleared individual labs of suspicion.The anthrax probe was just one of several topics covered in the committee hearing. Early in the session, Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., castigated Mueller for not responding directly to questions the committee had sent to him in advance.”How come we can’t get some straight answers on the questions I wrote you and I asked you in person? What is this?” Conyers asked after Mueller’s opening statement.Mueller said the bureau’s responses to the committee questions had to be reviewed by the Justice Department, causing inevitable delays. “I do believe we’ve tried to be responsive. I do believe we’ve been responsive to those questions,” Mueller said.Mueller is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow.See also: Sep 9 CIDRAP News story “Congress seeks answers from FBI in anthrax case”Aug 20 CIDRAP News story “FBI says it easily replicated anthrax used in attacks”House Judiciary Committee sitehttp://judiciary.house.gov
(Reuters) – Premier League strugglers, West Ham United, are set to reappoint David Moyes as their new head coach to replace the sacked Manuel Pellegrini, Sky Sports and the BBC reported on Sunday.Chilean Pellegrini was sacked after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at home by Leicester City, their ninth loss in 12 league games that left the London side 17th in the standings — one point above the relegation zone.It would be Moyes’ second stint with West Ham after he saved the club from relegation in the 2017-18 campaign during a six-month deal.He was hired by West Ham in November 2017 to replace Slaven Bilic with the London side in the relegation zone and the Scotsman led them to a 13th-placed finish to ensure the club’s survival in the top flight.However, the club chose not to renew his contract and hired Manchester City’s former title-winning manager Pellegrini in the off season last year, who led West Ham to a 10th-placed finish last season.If appointed, Moyes’ first game in charge will be at home against 16th-placed Bournemouth on Wednesday.
EL SEGUNDO — The Lakers are giving away points and giving away games.That’s Luke Walton’s opinion, and he’s not wrong.The Lakers are shooting a league-worst 70.5 percent from the free throw line, averaging only 16.6 made free throws in 23.6 attempts through the season’s first 19 games. It helped to explain their 8-11 record and 6 1 /2-game deficit behind the Pacific Division-leading Golden State Warriors.“We’re hitting them in practice the last couple of days,” Walton said Sunday. “We’re just killing our chances of winning with the percentage we’re shooting from the free throw line. Guys are hitting them (in practice), so now it’s about mentally being ready to take on that challenge of hitting them in games with 20,000 people watching and what-not.” At the other end of the spectrum, Brook Lopez has made 43 of 52 for a team-leading 82.7 percent. The veteran center is the only Laker shooting better than 80 percent, though. Four players are shooting less than 70 percent, including Ball.NANCE JR. BLOODIEDLarry Nance Jr. was bloodied when he caught an elbow above the left eye from teammate Andrew Bogut during Sunday’s practice, leaving the court to undergo an undetermined number of stitches to close the wound. Nance departed with a few angry words for Bogut, according to Walton.The injury wasn’t expected to keep Nance from playing Monday against the Clippers, his first contest since he undergoing surgery on his left hand Nov. 3. Walton wouldn’t say whether Nance would return to the starting lineup. Kyle Kuzma was listed as the probable starter at small forward.“They got him some stitches and said he’ll be good for (Monday),” Walton said.SECRET WEAPON?Bogut, a veteran center who is averaging 1.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in 8.3 minutes in 12 games this season, could play a significant role against the Clippers. Walton said he likes the way Bogut plays against the Clippers’ big men, especially center DeAndre Jordan.“He does as good of a job on ‘D.J.’ as I’ve seen anybody in the league do,” Walton said. “He understands positioning. He’s been such a big, solid rebounder in his career. We’ll use him where we need him. It never works out perfectly, but he’s obviously in the game plan for Monday night.”Jordan is the NBA’s second-leading rebounder, averaging 13.9 per game.HALLWAY SERIESThe Lakers have lost 10 consecutive games to the Clippers as the “road” team at Staples Center, and 19 of the past 21 matchups. The Lakers have been outscored by an average of 15.5 points during that stretch. The Lakers’ last victory over the Clippers as the “visiting” team was April 4, 2012. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersAs of Saturday’s games, the Utah Jazz led the NBA by sinking 82.7 percent of their free throws.For the record, the Lakers’ franchise record for lowest free-throw percentage is an anemic 65.0, set by the Elgin Baylor-, Wilt Chamberlain- and Jerry West-led 1968-69 team. The Lakers’ record for best free-throw percentage is 80.2, set in 1988-89.The 2017-18 Lakers are misfiring at a disconcerting rate, and no one more so than rookie Lonzo Ball, who has made only 12 of 28 for a team-low 42.9 percent. Ball’s unconventional windup before shooting appeared to be complicated recently by a hurried approach as he toed the line.“He hits them in practice,” Walton said of Ball, who was 0 of 2 from the line during the Lakers’ 113-102 loss last Wednesday to the Sacramento Kings, when they made only 9 of 15 (20 percent) as a team. “I thought, especially in Sacramento, he wasn’t taking his time at the line.“Those are all things he’s working on.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
