Gates Foundation goalkeeper report says progress still possible despite setbacks to global goals

Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates call on leaders to deliver on their commitments to the world’s poorest and invest in innovation and ingenuity to continue saving millions of lives

SEATTLE (September 12, 2022) – The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today released its sixth annual Goalkeepers Report, noting that nearly all United Nations Sustainable Development Goal indicators are off track halfway to achieving them. by 2030. Despite the significant setbacks caused by overlapping global crises, the report is optimistic, pointing to opportunities to accelerate progress towards ending poverty, tackling inequality and reducing the impacts of climate change.

Co-authored by foundation co-chairs Melinda French Gates and Bill Gates, this year’s report, ‘The Future of Progress’, notes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, wars in Ukraine and Yemen , the ongoing climate and food crises, and macro-economic headwinds on global ambitions to improve and save millions of lives by 2030.

“It’s no surprise that progress has stalled amid many crises,” said Bill Gates. “But that’s no reason to give up. Every action counts to save lives and reduce suffering. To turn away would be a mistake.

In their respective essays, French Gates and Gates call for new approaches to achieving gender equality and food security. They also cite dramatic progress in the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic – a nearly 60% drop in annual deaths between 2000 and 2020 – as an example of what can happen when the world invests in long-term solutions. and innovative approaches to rooted problems.

“The world faces many challenges, some of which may seem insurmountable. Yet, despite the setbacks, I am filled with hope that we can solve these problems together and save millions of lives through human ingenuity and innovation,” said French Gates. “We know that progress is possible because the global community has already faced difficult obstacles and won. And we can do it again.

This year’s report includes best and worst-case scenarios for ending preventable infectious diseases and malnutrition, improving access to quality education, increasing access to financial services, and achieving gender equality.

“At this historic inflection point, how the world responds to setbacks is a choice that will impact what happens now and for generations to come. Millions of lives are at stake,” the CEO said. of the Gates Foundation, Mark Suzman.”We call on governments, the private sector, civil society and philanthropic organizations to do more to achieve the ambitious goals and to continue to invest in new ways of thinking, new tools and data, and proven solutions to ensure that every person has the opportunity to lead a healthy and productive life.

In his essay, French Gates cites data that shows the world will not achieve gender equality until at least 2108, three generations later than expected. She calls for approaches that not only ensure a woman’s ability to earn a living, but control it.

“When it comes to the future of progress – not just on global goals related to gender equality, but on those on good health, quality education, ending poverty, and more again – there is one motor that can drive them all: the power of women,” French Gates writes.

She highlights two proven approaches to empowering women in their families and communities: building economic resilience through expanded access to digital financial tools, and building a robust care infrastructure that enables women to earn an income. outside the home.

In his essay, Gates argues that hunger cannot be solved by humanitarian aid alone. He cites recent shocks to the global grain supply from Eastern Europe and the continuing threat of climate change to underscore the vulnerability and interdependence of the global food system. Using a new data visualization tool to predict the impact of climate change, the report provides grim projections for future crop yields and agricultural productivity, particularly in Africa.

Gates cites examples of planting “climate-smart” crops and using predictive modeling as proven solutions that have helped smallholder farmers in Africa and India increase productivity and protect their crops from the effects climate change disruptors. It calls for increased investment in R&D and other proven solutions to significantly increase agricultural productivity, especially in Africa, where 14 countries depend on Russia and Ukraine for half of their wheat.

“The world should be generous and keep people from going hungry, but in another sense that doesn’t solve the larger problem. The objective should not simply be to give more food aid. It should be about making sure no help is needed in the first place,” he wrote.

In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and empowering them to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty.

Art on Main is a newly created art gallery for Guild members who can now register to host their own exhibition and exhibit their work with other member artists.

Following the success of the Guild’s annual ‘Art on Main’ art exhibition in July, the Art on Main gallery was conceived when building owner Randy Thunfors approached the Guild with the idea. He facilitated the Guild’s use of space at 38 Main Street to accommodate a year-round art gallery. In August, the gallery quickly opened its doors to host art exhibitions organized by Guild members.

Shany Porras, a Guild member and professional artist from Stockbridge, comes to the role, having had years of experience setting up new enterprise risk programs at global financial organizations before moving into the arts a few years ago. Additionally, Porras brings extensive experience of her ability to organize, coordinate and generate results in combination with her painting practice and online gallery. His initial goal for the gallery will be to encourage members to exhibit their work and to help participating artists in the process. Shany’s experience will ensure the Berkshire community is aware of outstanding shows as she manages the calendar with unique offerings throughout the year. She hopes the gallery will strengthen the city’s already established artistic community.

Study links Piezo1 and intracellular cholesterol levels during neuronal development https://ronbercume.com/study-links-piezo1-and-intracellular-cholesterol-levels-during-neuronal-development/ Thu, 08 Sep 2022 13:23:00 +0000 https://ronbercume.com/study-links-piezo1-and-intracellular-cholesterol-levels-during-neuronal-development/ A new study led by the University of California, Irvine reveals how mechanical forces and tissue mechanics influence the morphology of the developing brain and establishes a direct link in neural stem cells between Piezo1, a mechanically activated ion channel, and intracellular cholesterol levels during neuronal development. development.

A new study led by the University of California, Irvine reveals how mechanical forces and tissue mechanics influence the morphology of the developing brain and establishes a direct link in neural stem cells between Piezo1, a mechanically activated ion channel, and intracellular cholesterol levels during neuronal development. development.

The study, titled “Piezo1 Regulates Cholesterol Biosynthesis to Influence Neural Stem Cell Fate During Brain Development,” was published today in the Journal of General Physiology. The study results demonstrate a role for Piezo1 in the neurodevelopmental process that modulates cell quantity, quality, and organization by influencing cellular cholesterol metabolism.

Our surprising discovery linking Piezo1 and cholesterol also motivates research on Piezo1 in neurodegenerative diseases linked to cholesterol homeostasis, such as Alzheimer’s disease. By controlling Piezo1 activity through therapeutics, we may be able to develop new treatments for some of these diseases.”


Medha Pathak, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Physiology and Biophysics at UCI School of Medicine

Neural development is a multi-step process that involves the orchestration of many complex events to generate the brain and spinal cord. As the brain develops, cells multiply and organize themselves into structures and connect with other cells. These processes produce mechanical forces that further shape the patterning of the brain, but how cells sense these mechanical signals is not fully understood.

“We have previously found that Piezo1 channels are activated in response to both externally applied and cell-generated mechanical forces in human fetal brain-derived neural stem/progenitor cells, and we now show in our current study that Piezo1 is important for proper brain development,” said Jamison Nourse, PhD, associate project scientist in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics and first author of the study. “Through our research, we have discovered a novel link between Piezo1 and cholesterol biosynthesis, which opens new avenues of investigation into how mechanical forces influence lipid metabolism in the brain.”

Previous research has established the role that the Piezo family of mechanically activated ion channels plays in mechanotransduction in many physiological systems, including vascular development, cardiovascular homeostasis, lymphatic development, red blood cell volume regulation, baroreceptor response in neurons, cartilage mechanics, bone formation. , macrophage polarization responses, keratinocyte migration in wound healing, and neural stem cell fate. In 2021, Dr. Ardem Patapoutian of the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the groundbreaking discovery of Piezo channels.

“Incorrect brain development can lead to lifelong malformations and functional defects,” Pathak said. “And, although we still don’t understand the reason behind many brain developmental defects, our work provides new approaches to understanding how brain defects can arise.”

Pathak and his research team continue to explore Piezo1 and its effect on cholesterol metabolism in early development of the human brain and in adult neurodegenerative diseases.
