Biden urges a new economic relief package and warns again of a ‘dark winter’ ahead

WILMINGTON, Del. — President-elect Joe Biden urged Congress to immediately pass an economic relief package Monday as he warned that the coronavirus pandemic will worsen in the coming months.

Biden says ‘more people may die’ if Trump doesn’t allow coordination on pandemic planning



The incoming Democratic president also criticized President Trump for his refusal to concede his election loss and begin handing over power. Biden called Trump’s unprecedented actions “embarrassing for the country” and irresponsible.

The delay in cooperation is setting back plans for a coordinated rollout of a coronavirus vaccine, Biden said. Most of that rollout would fall to the Biden administration next year, but the Trump White House is not sharing details of its distribution plan.

Trump falsely claims that he won the Nov. 3 election and is holding up the normal transition process for a new president.

“I interpret that as

A single criterion predicts whether a genetic package such as antibiotic resistance will thrive in a given environment — ScienceDaily

Biomedical engineers at Duke University have developed a new way of modeling how potentially beneficial packages of DNA called plasmids can circulate and accumulate through a complex environment that includes many bacterial species. The work has also allowed the team to develop a new factor dubbed the “persistence potential” that, once measured and computed, can predict whether or not a plasmid will continue to thrive in a given population or gradually fade into oblivion.

The researchers hope that their new model will lay the groundwork for others to better model and predict how important traits such as antibiotic resistance in pathogens or metabolic abilities in bacteria bred to clean environmental pollution will spread and grow in a given environment.

The results appear online on November 4 in the journal Nature Communications.

In addition to the Darwinian process of handing down genes important for survival from parents to offspring, bacteria
