Zastava Trucks

Zastava Trucks is a Serbian truck manufacturer based in the city of Kragujevac, Serbia. It is a subsidiary of Group Zastava Vehicles which declared bankruptcy in May 2017. In September 2017, the Government of Serbia established Zastava TERVO, which took over Zastava Trucks production facilities. FoundationProduction of Zastava commercial vehicles started in the period before the Second World War when 400 Chevrolet trucks were produced for the Royal Yugoslav Army. From 1953, 162 off-road vehicles with the trademark Willys were produced. Under licence from Fiat production of Fiat Campagnola AR-51 trucks and off-road vehicles started in 1955, followed by Fiat 1100TF vans. 1961–1991In 1961, the vehicles “Zastava 615” and “Zastava 620” appeared on the market as the result of in-house development. This production had successful development up to 1969 when significant stagnation happened because of that time program and introduction of the new know-how, it is necessary to mention that in that period production of commercial vehicles was arranged in a frame of car factory.

For that reason, on 18 June 1969, the decision was made by Zastava to start with organization the factory "Fabrike privrednih vozila - Zastava" including long-term development program with the following goals: 1. to realize development within cooperation with Officine Meccaniche but to exceed license form of cooperation and to base the same on the work distribution through the long-term production cooperation 2. to provide production of the components through the cooperation as well as of the vital assemblies in the batches which provide economical production 3. to create conditions for production the modern commercial vehicles, well-known on the world market, in that way the conditions for their commercialization on the local and foreign market. On the base of the new contracts with FIAT production started of light delivery vans with a payload of 0.6 t, in Sombor, in the newly opened III plant. In addition to the production of the vehicles, based on this contract, production started of front and rear axles, chassis frames and other components for the needs of "“Zastava” factory in Kragujevac as well as for the needs of the factory in Brescia.

With the contract on long-term production cooperation, dated August 5, 1978, the new Gamma range of commercial vehicles, OM-40/35, so-called “MALI OM” was introduced. Soon after that FIAT IVECO transferred production of the Gamma vehicles to “Zastava-Privredna Vozila” so this Gamma isn't produced only for the local market's needs but for sale through the partner's sales network. 1991–2015Since 1 January 1991, Iveco has held a 46% stake and "Zastava Trucks" 54% in the joint venture company. 2015–2017 ShutdownAs of October 2015, only around 70 people were employed in the company, after several rounds of departure with severance payments. In May 2017, Group Zastava Vehicles, consisted of Zastava Automobiles, Zastava Trucks, Zastava INPRO and Zastava Special Automobiles, declared bankruptcy before the Economic Court in Kragujevac. By conclusion of Government of Serbia in August 2017, a new company was formed - Zastava Tervo - all properties of former Zastava Trucks were transferred to new company.

With the contract on “KNOW HOW” and contract on industrial cooperation with IVECO, dated 1985 and 1988, the commercial vehicles range was expanded to: “X”-series, consisting of the 30.8. Iveco Zastava Automobiles Defense industry of Serbia Official website Iveco to overtake Zastava Trucks

Mir-671 microRNA precursor family

In molecular biology mir-671 microRNA is a short RNA molecule. MicroRNAs function to regulate the expression levels of other genes by several mechanisms. MiR-671 expression levels have been found to be vary between the alcoholic and non-alcoholic forms of fatty liver disease. MiR-671 has been seen to negatively regulate the CDR1 gene, through the targeting and cleavage of a circular antisense transcript of the CDR1 locus. There is a partnered decrease in CDR1 mRNA levels with this downregulation. MiR-671 is able to bind to and repress fibronection type 1 mRNA at its 3'untranslated region binding site.

Lay Phyu

Lay Phyu is a Burmese rock singer and guitarist. He is the lead vocalist of the popular rock band Iron Cross. Lay is considered the most commercially successful male singer in the history of Burmese rock music. Lay Phyu was born on 19 May 1965 in Inlay Lake, Shan State, Myanmar along with his younger brother Ah Nge, he attended and graduated from Mandalay University with an English Major where he met Y Wine, one of the aspiring singers from the Iron Cross Music band. He joined the "Iron Cross" band, founded by Saw Bwe Hmu, a famous guitarist and songwriter. Chit San Maung became the lead guitarist after Bwe Hmu died. Ah Nge, Myo Gyi and Y Wine joined the new aspiring band. Since his early career days, Lay Phyu became successful in his first album "Gandarya Lamin" and helped define the genre of Burmese rock music. Much of his music was inspired by bands such as Nazareth, Van Halen, Dream Theatre, Bon Jovi. Lay Phyu first started his path to fame. On, as he gained confidence and popularity in his music career, he began to compose a few of his own music.

With the copy songs written together with his Iron Cross associates, Lay Phyu gave a fresh boost to Myanmar's Music Industry. In 2008, when Cyclone Nargis struck the South Western regions of Myanmar, Iron Cross as well as many other famous artists formed a collaboration of songs as to raise funds to help victims rebuild their livelihoods. An organization from California sponsored the charity and published a song called "Hands with love"; the collaboration proceeded to perform "Hands with love" by written by Raggie, raising awareness to Myanmar locals of the damage that natural disasters can cause to people's social and environmental factors. The same anonymous sponsor published and performed a song "a yay ma kyi bue" in the same year, dedicated towards his twin daughters he had lost. Lay Phyu shot a new music video in MD for his new upcoming album; the video was shot in late 2012 by Burmese director Danyar. The title for the track is called "Kyo Hnint Dawt". Another music video, Yote Thein Pay featured footage of recording sessions and 2012 USA Tour.

Jurkat cells

Jurkat cells are an immortalized line of human T lymphocyte cells that are used to study acute T cell leukemia, T cell signaling, the expression of various chemokine receptors susceptible to viral entry HIV. Jurkat cells can produce interleukin 2, are used in research involving the susceptibility of cancers to drugs and radiation; the Jurkat cell line was established in the late 1970s from the peripheral blood of a 14-year-old boy with T cell leukemia. Different derivatives of the Jurkat cell line that have been mutated to lack certain genes can now be obtained from cell culture banks; the JCaM1.6 cell line is deficient in Lck activity due to the deletion of part of the LCK gene from the LCK transcript. J. RT3-T3.5 cells have a mutation in the T cell receptor beta chain locus precluding expression of this chain. This affects the cells in several ways. Since they are deficient in the TCR complex, these cells are a useful tool for transfection studies using T cell receptor alpha and beta chain genes and are used in labs in which T cell receptor gene transfer technologies are studied.

The I 9.2 and I 2.1 cell lines. The I 2.1 cell line is functionally defective for FADD and the I 9.2 cell line is functionally defective for caspase-8, both defective molecules being essential to apoptosis or necroptosis of cells. The D1.1 cell line does not express the CD4 molecule, an important co-receptor in the activation pathway of helper T cells. The J.gamma1 subline contains no detectable phospholipase C-gamma1 protein and therefore has profound defects in T cell receptor calcium mobilization and activation of nuclear factor of activated T cells. J-Lat contains integrated but transcriptionally latent HIV proviruses, in which GFP replaces nef coding sequence, a frameshift mutation in env. Jurkat J6 cells have been found to produce a xenotropic murine leukemia virus that could affect experimental outcomes. There is no evidence; this infection may change the virulence and tropism of the virus by way of phenotypic mixing and/or recombination.

Albéniz, Álava

Albéniz is a village in Álava, Basque Country, Spain. It is one of the typical villages of the Alava Plain nestled in the municipality of Asparrena; the village surrounds a svelte church with its tower and it is enclosed by the Umandia, Albéniz and Ballo mountains. It has a few districts such as San Juan and San Bartolomé as well as scatterings of population in Moñete, Orrao and La Estación. In its sometimes not well documented history, there are indications that the Roman road from Bordeaux to Astorga once crossed through this town; this old route is the base of the Madrid-Irun railway and highway N-I. It has been suggested that the current people of Albéniz correspond to the population of Albanians, as suggested by Plinio, because of the similarity between its name and the important Roman mansion of Alba. Additionally the innumerable archaeological remains found within the territory or the indication by Lorenzo de Prestamero of how he saw, at the end of the 13th century a tombstone, now defunct, in the altar of the hermitage of Andra Mari of Orrao, add credence to this position.

To reinforce this idea, in the Araia Church there are four stones as well as many other fragments of Roman inscriptions, because of their poor state of preservation, it is not possible to understand their meaning. Another detail that can reaffirm the relationship between Albéniz and the former Alba may be that the distance that the Roman Antonino mentions between the Tulonio, now Alegeria and Alba mansions was 3 leagues or 12 miles, the actual distance between the two populations mentioned; as a further means of identification of the two names, a 1932 article in the Revista Internacional de los Estudios Vascos mentioned in the chapter "El territorio de los vascos": "the towns of Tuboricum, Alba close to Salvatierra..." Upholding the theory that the inhabitants of Alba were the Albanians themselves and subsequent texts in which they are listed as Alabanians, one can say that this is the origin of the word Álava, name of the province in which Albéniz is located. In an Arabic text from 758 AD, when they plundered the province to take away the wheat, the inhabitants of the zone were referred to as "varduli alabanensis".

In the Middle Ages Albéniz appeared in a document of the Voto de San Millán having to pay a ram along with three other adjoining villages and in 1062 and 1071 it was listed as a toponymic surname in various documents. In the 13th century it was included within the Archpriesthood of Eguílaz, together with the districts of Amamio, a village between Albéniz and Araia. For quite some time it was under the protection of the Count of Oñate; because it was on the road to France, in the War of the Convention, 1795, the removal after the defeat at the Battle of Vitoria, Albéniz was looted by the French: "The French came into this area on July 14 at ten in the morning and, although they entered the church and opened the Blessed Sacrament, they did no other damage, because the other things were hidden in the hold of the sacristy." It is known that in 1556 there were 30 residents living with five clergymen serving the parish of San Juan and the two hermitages and San Bartolomé. In 1786 it had 119 inhabitants, rising in 1888 to 178 and in 1900 to 195.

This population increase was due to the rise of the mills. Subsequently, its population has been declining, in 1950 it had 164, 134 in 1970, 84. From the history of the people it has been said, that around 1845 the village of Albéniz-Albeiz was referred to as cold and healthy, but its people were suffering from chest and side diseases; the culture of Albéniz-Albeiz can be endorsed in the fact that as early as the 19th century there was a school equipped with 500 reals attended by fifteen children of both sexes and that the parish of San Juan Bautista was served by two perpetual beneficiaries, presented by the town council, one of them took charge of the care of souls. The professional rider, Alberto López de Munain, was born in Albéniz. From 1996 he was associated with the Fundación Euskadi team, his greatest deeds are victories in Stage 0 of the Dauphiné Libéré, France, on 4 June 2000. Luis Maria Diaz de Otazu from Albéniz is connected with professional racing with the ONCE team. San Juan Bautista Parish Church.
