Arsenal to hand Aubameyang new £250,000k deal after FA Cup heroics

first_img It is believed the 31-year-old Gabon international is looking for a new deal worth £250,000-a-week and the Gunners are said to be willing to pay up to keep their goal hero at the Emirates Stadium. But former Arsenal winger Perry Groves has told talkSPORT he’d be happy for Aubameyang to be given £500,000-per-week to sure he stays at Arsenal, insisting the striker would deserve those astronomical wages. “I know we’re in difficult financial times, but if they said Aubameyang is on £400,000 or £500,000 a week, that wouldn’t bother me at all,” he said on talkSPORT’s Final Word on Sunday.

The Gunners’ talisman goalscorer and captain underlined his unquestionable importance to the club with a fine performance when it mattered on Saturday, as his double led the club to a historic 14th FA Cup win. And manager Mikel Arteta has challenged the striker to commit himself to the club, saying he can become one of Arsenal’s all-time great strikers if he does. According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are ready to begin ‘serious negotiations’ over a new contract for Aubameyang, after he also helped the club secure a place in next season’s Europa League by winning the cup. He has entered the final year of his current £180,000-a-week deal, although that features a 12 month extension clause worth £20m for one season which must be triggered by December 31. But it is claimed Arsenal want to offer him fresh terms to remove that clause and secure his long-term future at the club.

Keck study a step towards curing cancer

first_imgResearchers from the Keck School of Medicine have found a way to genetically modify mice so the rodents’ immune systems act like human immune systems, a discovery that will impact medical testing.Doctors Weiming Yuan, Xiangshu Wen, Seil Kim and Agnieszka Lawrenczyk published the study this month in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research took about two years and the project will be completed within four years.Yuan, the project’s chief investigator, began work on the mice a few years ago, after he recognized that current clinical trials were not successful. Yuan attributed this to minor differences between human and rodent immune systems. This difference led him to attempt to humanize the mouse model.“Making a mouse is a challenging project,” Yuan said. “This will be helping a lot of scientists to further clinical trials.”The mice contribute to research toward finding better treatments for cancer. When tested on mice, the drug α-GalCer successfully rid the animal of cancerous cells. The same results, however, were not obtained when the medication was used on human subjects, showing differences between the two species’ immune systems.The mice modification project required the successful insertion of a new functioning gene. This type of modification is far more challenging than so-called “knock-out” genetic modification, which is modification that works by eliminating a gene’s function. Yuan said the next step will be to further humanize the T-cell receptor, which activates lymphocytes that initiate immune system responses.The team used the difficulty of the project as motivation to succeed. Yuan said they were all very enthusiastic about their research despite difficulty working with the small size of their grant.“[We] definitely needed more funding — it’s the practical challenges,” Yuan said. “Lots of scientists are concerned about the funding situation.”The team hopes to further their work in the humanization of the rodents’ immune system.“We will branch out, but right now we have more work to further humanize the mice,” Yuan said. “We still have quite a lot of work to do before we branch out.”The dedication and enthusiasm of the team is only gaining momentum. “The future model will be even more reliable,” Yuan said.last_img read more

‘We Want to Bring More Jobs and Investments to Liberia’

first_imgThe Executive Director of the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) in the State of Maryland (USA) Jim Coleman, says his company will soon invest in the National Port Authority (NPA) with the aim to create more jobs for Liberians.“I have a personal interest in helping to make Liberia’s economy thrive,” said Coleman, adding, “When I learned of my family’s direct connection to the very foundation of Liberia, I knew that there would be no better time for us to leverage our relationships and resources to find investment opportunities that will create jobs and rebuild a flourishing business environment in the NPA Community.”Coleman spoke recently to a Liberian delegation in Maryland (MD) to cement previous agreements on how to further partnerships with businesses and industries on both sides of the Atlantic. He said the EDC is looking to share investment opportunities with Prince George’s County, specifically their vast port system. He noted that through passionate dialogue, it became apparent that a partnership between Prince George’s County and the NPA will have very fruitful returns for both sides.Business mogul Coleman said the EDC will help Liberians with their resources to establish investment opportunities in the country.The Liberian delegation included Gabriel Williams from the Liberian Embassy in the U.S; Gerald F.B. Cooper, Planning Chair with Marylanders for Progress (Liberia) Inc.; John G. Bestman, Chairman, NPA Board of Directors; David F. Williams, NPA Managing Director; and Barnabas Kasor, Executive Director for Ports and Harbor-Liberia.Mr. Williams provided a detailed overview of the port system in Liberia and its value proposition for re-development.“We are delighted to have been a part of today’s briefing as we discussed how we can create a linkage between the Prince George’s County EDC and the Port Authority of Liberia,” said Williams. He added: “This is an exciting time for Liberia as a result of the renaissance that has taken place in the country as a whole, in particular the ports. We had a very interactive discussion about the port systems and how we can go about getting capital for some of the projects.” He then expressed the hope to establish a committee to further discuss about collaborations to pursue their objectives.He expressed gratitude to Mr. Coleman and his team for the fruitful discussion.“Were are extremely interested in how the EDC and the U.S. can utilize its vast resources to bring foreign investors and better opportunities with key business owners to redevelop and diversify the ports of Liberia,” said Williams. Williams also expressed how grateful he was to form part of the Liberian delegation to promote the idea that would result to forming a sister-state relationship between Maryland, Liberia and the Maryland in the U.S.“I think the discussion we had today was quite interesting that we can build our future on. We hope to move forward with this program and shape other relationships with the help of the EDC. Together we can form a greater community for Prince George’s County and Liberia,” Mr. Williams said.The Sister State Agreement was established in 2007 between Maryland County in Liberia and the State of Maryland to enhance cultural and historic understandings and cooperation to promote international trade between them, he said.According to a press release, during their lively discussion, EDC Board Member Eric Henderson suggested that the group formally adopt a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that specifically identifies the most profitable investment opportunities in Liberia. With this document in hand, the EDC will be able to share Liberia’s value proposition in tandem with local investment opportunities.The MOU will also create and complement the Sister State Agreement by stimulating the port economy and enhance the quality of Liberia’s imports.The EDC, County of Baltimore and the Baltimore port leadership hosted the NPA delegations with the aim to cement the previous discussions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
