Taiwan director Doze Niu is faced with a criminal prosecution after bringing a mainland photographer named Cao Yu( actress Yao Chen’s husband) to a military harbour of Taiwan for the shooting of his new film.

On July 11th, he made a formal apology to the public through media for the mistakes he had made,saying he was sorry for his hasty and reckless move and is open to any possible criticism. But at the end of his apology, he insisted that he would carry on with his cause, which is widely seen as a signal to continue the filming of the movie.

It is reported that director Doze Niu’s new movie was scheduled to start shooting in August and some of the scenes need to be taken at a military harbour. On July 1st, Doze Niu violated the agreement with the military authorities for bringing the mainland photographer Cao Yu to the harbour.

A Taiwan military spokesman claimed that the case was under the investigation and by law the director could face a maximum five-year sentence and for the photographer Herre Nike Air Presto Essential Sko Sort Blå Udsalg , it would be seven.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 15 (Xinhua) -- A new study identifies two chemicals found in anti-fertility folk medicines as effective in blocking a key step in fertilization and potential alternatives to hormone-based contraceptives.

Unlike hormone-based contraceptives, which sometimes cause side effects, the chemicals seem to have no adverse effect on egg or sperm, other than to prevent the sperm from pushing through the cells that congregate around the egg and an enveloping membrane called the zona pelucida.

Effective at low doses, according to the study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Herre Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra High Grå Udsalg , they work by stopping sperm's power kick, which is normally stimulated by the hormone progesterone secreted by cells surrounding the egg and makes the sperm's tail whip forcefully to propel it into the egg.

One of these chemicals is pristimerin, from the plant Tripterygium wilfordii, also known as "thunder god vine." Leaves from the plant have been used as an antifertility drug in Chinese traditional medicine, though some compounds in the leaves are poisonous. It has also been used as a folk remedy for rheumatoid arthritis.

The other chemical is lupeol, which is found in plants such as mango and dandelion root. While it has been tested as an anticancer agent Herre Nike Air Presto Sko Sort Tilbud , it was not suspected of having contraceptive properties.

"Because these two plant compounds block fertilization at very, very low concentrations," said Polina Lishko, an assistant professor of molecular and cell biology, who led the team that discovered the anti-fertility properties of the two chemicals.

"They could be a new generation of emergency contraceptive we nicknamed 'molecular condoms.' If one can use a plant-derived, non-toxic Herre Nike Air Presto QS Sko Sort Tilbud , non-hormonal compound in lesser concentration to prevent fertilization in the first place, it could potentially be a better option."

"The massive influx of calcium into the sperm tail changes the sperm tail's beating pattern, making it highly asymmetrical," said Nadja Mannowetz, first author on the study. "This asymmetrical bending gives the sperm cell enough force to drill through the tenacious egg vestment."

Last year, Lishko Nike Air Presto SE Woven Sko Hvid Udsalg , Mannowetz and and former postdoctoral fellow Melissa Miller found that the hormone progesterone is key to opening the calcium channel and triggering tail whipping. The hormone binds to a protein called ABHD2, which in turn opens the channel. They began a search for other chemicals that would bind to ABHD2, either opening the channel, like progesterone, or blocking the channel.

In the new study, Mannowetz tested three other hormones: testosterone Dame Nike Air Presto Sko Hvid Tilbud , estrogen and cortisol, a stress hormone. All three competed with progesterone and blocked tail whipping, though only testosterone and cortisol were effective at levels typical of the hormones' levels in the body. This suggests, she said, that stress and high testosterone levels in women decrease fertility in part by preventing sperm from penetrating the egg.

They also found a second hormone that triggers tail whipping: a steroid structurally similar to progesterone called pregnenolone sulfate.

Mannowetz found that both pristimerin and lupeol blocked progesterone binding to ADHD2, preventing sperm's power kick. "These compounds not only blocked calcium channel activation Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Sko Rød Sort Danmark , but also blocked sperm hyperactivated motility, reducing their activity to the level of nonactivated sperm cells," Lishko was quoted as saying in a news release.

"It doesn't kill sperm basal motility. It is not toxic to sperm cells; they still can move. But they cannot develop this powerful stroke, because this whole activation pathway is shut down."

JAMES BLUNT set sail over the audience at Radio 2’s Hyde Park festival Sunday — perched precariously inside a rubber dinghy.

The star’s unusual take on crowdsurfing came at the end of a mid-afternoon set, which featured the hits “You’re Beautiful Dame Nike Air Max TN Sko Hvid Danmark ,” “Bonfire Heart” and “1973.”

But he came to a sticky end when the Union Jack dinghy capsized about 30 rows back from the stage.

“Can we have him back, please?” compere Ken Bruce asked the crowd.

Blunt later emerged unscathed, after posing for selfies with (some of) the 35,000-strong audience.
