British Columbia Highway 7

Highway 7, known for most of its length as the Lougheed Highway and Broadway, is an alternative route to Highway 1 through the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. Whereas the controlled-access Highway 1 follows the southern bank of the Fraser River, Highway 7 follows the northern bank. Highway 7 was first commissioned in 1941, went from Vancouver to Harrison Hot Springs, following Dewdney Trunk Road between Port Moody and Port Coquitlam. In 1953, Highway 7 was moved to its current alignment between Coquitlam, its eastern end was moved south from Harrison Hot Springs to Agassiz in 1956, east to Ruby Creek in 1968. Since 1973, Highway 7 has travelled to a junction with Highway 1 just north of Hope. Unlike former Alberta premier Peter Lougheed's name, the name of the highway is pronounced LOH-heed; the highway is named after Nelson Seymour Lougheed, MLA for the Dewdney District and the BC Minister of Public Works who ran a logging company in the area. Highway 7's total length under the jurisdiction of the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation is 118 km.

Highway 7 is signed as far west as Granville Street on Broadway in Vancouver, all the way east through Burnaby into Coquitlam, under the jurisdiction of the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority. The section under the MOT's jurisdiction begins at the westbound exit with Highway 1 near Schoolhouse Street, with a total length of 2.3 km. The highway turns northeast, meets with Highway 1 at the Cape Horn Interchange, has an exit with United Boulevard; the highway leaves the MOT's jurisdiction 300 m after the interchange. TransLink again has jurisdiction of Highway 7 from the point east of Ottawa Street to the point east of United Boulevard. Highway 7 falls under the MOT's jurisdiction again after Ottawa Street, crossing over the Pitt River Bridge into Pitt Meadows. 6 km southeast of the Pitt River bridge, it crosses into Maple Ridge at Maple Meadows Way, the highway crosses into Mission another 20 km east. 9 km of Highway 7's entry into Mission, it meets a junction with Highway 11.

8 km east of the Highway 11 junction, Highway 7 leaves Mission over the Hatzic Pump Bridge. 27 km east of the Highway's eastern exit from Mission, Highway 7 enters the Municipality of Kent. 14 km east, it reaches a junction with Highway 9 at Agassiz. 18 km northeast of the Highway 9 junction, it leaves Kent. Another 12 km northeast, Highway 7 reaches its eastern terminus at a junction with Highway 1 at Haig, just across the Fraser River from the main part of Hope. From west to east

Dopamine receptor D3

Dopamine receptor D3 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DRD3 gene. This gene encodes the D3 subtype of the dopamine receptor; the D3 subtype inhibits adenylyl cyclase through inhibitory G-proteins. This receptor is expressed in phylogenetically older regions of the brain, suggesting that this receptor plays a role in cognitive and emotional functions, it is a target for drugs which treat schizophrenia, drug addiction, Parkinson's disease. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants that would encode different isoforms, although some variants may be subject to nonsense-mediated decay. D3 agonists like 7-OH-DPAT, rotigotine, among others, display antidepressant effects in rodent models of depression D3 agonists have been shown to disrupt prepulse inhibition of startle, a cross-species measure that recapitulates deficits in sensorimotor gating in neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. In contrast, D3-preferring antagonists have antipsychotic-like profiles in measures of PPI in rats.

Dopamine receptor D3 has been shown to interact with CLIC6 and EPB41L1. Dopamine receptor "Dopamine Receptors: D3". IUPHAR Database of Receptors and Ion Channels.

Annie Lock

Ann Lock, better known as Annie Lock, was a missionary of the Australian Aborigines Mission. She worked across Australia for nearly 35 years and played an important role in bringing the Coniston Massacre to national public attention. Annie Lock was born on 1 August 1876 at Rhynie in South Australia. Annie was the seventh child of English-born parents and Walter Lock, she worked as a dressmaker until 1901 when she entered Angas College, Adelaide to train as a missionary. In 1903 she joined the New South Wales Aborigines Mission, she spend 34 years working for the mission society.. Lock worked as a missionary in NSW, WA, SA and the NT, her most controversial period was when, in 1927, she arrived at Harding Soak, 161 kms north of Alice Springs and 22 kms from Coniston Station. The Australian Aborigines Mission did not support her move here, it was too far north for logistical support and they had plans to send two male missionaries to the area. When the Coniston Massacre took place Lock was as instrumental in bringing about an official inquiry into what happened there.

Following her advocacy, along with that of Methodist Home Missionary Athol McGregor, a Board of Inquiry was appointed in December 1928. It was presided over by A H O'Kelly. In 1929, Lock gave evidence at the Inquiry and achieved national notoriety when H. A. Heinrich, a missionary from Hermannsburg, declared that she had told him she would be "happy to marry a black". One of the findings of the inquiry was to blamed racial unrest in the area on "a woman Missionary living amongst naked blacks thus lowering their respect for the whites" In 1933 Lock returned to South Australia where she worked at Ooldea, where she pioneered a mission until 1936, she married widower James Johansen in Port Augusta on 15 September 1937 and resigned from the mission organisation and travelled with her minister husband.
