South Korea says it may rework a US beef deal

Anna Chan:
South Korea’s prime minister says he’s left the door open to revising a U.S. beef import deal. Many believe that Seoul agreed to the pact to please Washington… despite safety concerns. We now go to
Seoul for more.

Next Thursday South Korea resumes quarantine inspections on all cuts of U.S. beef from animals of any age. No U.S. beef has been imported here since 2003 following an outbreak of mad cow disease.

South Korea’s government says they will be watching the imports carefully.

[Han Seung-soo, South Korean Prime Minister]:
“We will suspend the beef imports (from the U.S.) if our people’s health is in danger with an outbreak of mad cow disease in America.”

Last month South Korea agreed to open its market to American beef.

South Koreans have taken to the streets in protest. They’ve been listening to the quickly spreading rumors that products such as diapers and cosmetics may pose a risk for mad cow disease because beef products are used in their production.

The government says U.S. beef is safe. To help prove their claims they brought in scientists to knock down some of the claims.

South Korea used to be the third-largest import market for U.S. beef.

Help with Phenotype and Genotype.?

In this packet I got from my teacher (I’m in 9th grade), and I received a packet containing questions such as the following:

In poultry, rose comb is controlled by a dominant allele and its recessive allele controls single comb.
a. Give the genotype and the phenotype produced from crossing a pure-breeding rose comb chicken with a pure-breeding single comb chicken.
b. Give the results of the backccross of the F1 hybrid with both pure-breeding parents.

Guys, I’m so lost! Could someone thoroughly explain this whole process to me?
My packet was just questions, no explanation or anything.
Thank you so much erin!

This is a pretty common question type. It’s governed by the Punnet square, which I’ll describe below.

First, rose comb, since it’s dominant, we’ll abbreviate as ‘R’ and single, since it’s recessive, we’ll abbreviate as ‘r’. So a pure bred dominant would have a genotype (the way the genes look) of RR while a purebred recessive would have a genotype of rr. When we cross these, we have to do the Punnet square:

r Rr Rr
r Rr Rr

Can you see from the above that when a RR combines with an rr, you get four possibilities: Rr, Rr, Rr and Rr. Therefore, the genotype of all the young, or the F1 generation, would be Rr while the phenotype (the way it looks) would be rose colored since the R is dominant!

Next: We’ll cross the F1 generation (the Rr) with the pure bred parents, to keep it simple, we’ll put the F1 generation on the top of the Punnet square and the parent on the left (although you can reverse these, it doesn’t matter)

The pure bred dominant (RR)

R r

So here, you have two possible genotypes: RR and Rr, both will have the same phenotype.

The pure bred recessive (rr)

R r
r Rr rr
r Rr rr

You see that when you cross the F1 with the recessive pure bred, you get two possible genotypes: Rr and rr, but now you have two phenotypes: rose and single comb.

Hope this helps!

Find Out Where You Can Learn to Make Your Favorite Dishes at Cooking Schools?

Thai cuisine has gained popularity all over the world for its fresh flavours, healthy ingredients and low fat cooking methods for help visit At one time recipes in Thailand were divided between those for the royal court (which were kept secret) and those for commoners. Now royal and everyday recipes have mingled but there are still significant regional differences.

In the north of Thailand glutinous rice is favoured over steamed rice and it is kneaded into small balls with the fingers and used to soak up liquid dishes. Northern curries have a milder, more herbal quality thanthose in the south. Curries are flavoured with ginger, tamarind and turmeric. Preserved fruits and pickled vegetables are popular accompaniments. The traditional meal served when entertaining in the north is a Khantok dinner. Khan meaning bowl and tok meaning a low round table. Guests sit on the floor around the table and help themselves to a variety of dishes which may include rice, fried chicken, a curry, a minced meat dish and a salad. The north is famous for longans (a lychee-like fruit) when in season.

In the south coconut features in many dishes and locally grown cashew nuts are eaten as appetisers or stir-fried with chicken and dried chillis. As you may expect, there is an abundance of seafood. Around the Gulf of Thailand shellfish are farmed and so they are very fresh. Whole fish are sometimes brought to the table still poaching in heavily seasoned stock over a charcoal burner. The result is pleasantly aromatic rather than intensely spicy.

However, the type of cuisine with which we are most familiar comes from the central region of Thailand and dates from the early 13th century when the first independent Thai capital was located at Sukhothai. The basic diet consisted of rice, fish and vegetables flavoured with black pepper and fish sauce, along with fresh fruits. When power later transferred south to Ayuthaya other ingredients such as coriander, lime and tomato were added to the diet, along with what has become an essential ingredient – chilli pepper. Other influences came from India, Japan, Persia and China.
