The team of researchers at the ARC Centre for Excellence in Plant Energy Biology and the Centre for AgriBioscience at La Trobe University, have boosted plant performance under limited phosphate by targeting genes that regulate phosphate transport in plant roots, resulting in increased phosphate uptake while sidestepping negative effects on plant growth and yield. The approach overcomes a hurdle encountered by previous attempts to increase plant phosphate uptake, where reduced growth and yield were observed as a result of plants not being able to process the extra phosphate. The discovery would be even more valuable in China where overuse of fertilisers is a huge environmental and economic issue. There is also great interest in the United States where the findings were published. Phosphate, an essential nutrient for plant growth, is a limited and non-renewable resource, with high-grade phosphate reserves gradually being exhausted. According to the United Nations, global food production will need to double by Improving fertiliser use by crops, in particular phosphorus use, is essential for sustainable agriculture. In the field, only a small percentage of the applied phosphate fertiliser is taken up by plants, with the rest remaining in the soil or being lost as fertiliser run-off and ending up in waterways. Increasing phosphate uptake by plants will result in less fertiliser wastage and, ultimately, a need to apply less of this limited resource for plant growth.

Trying to get my head around it for the first time nearly left me with a headache. The immigration website was a labyrinth to me, with a ton of info about Australian partner visas sprinkled across multiple website pages. I never found an official, simple Australian Partner Visa checklist — probably because there are too many different situations for a one-size fits all, easy, reassuring list.
There are no major Australian Partner Visa Changes to report. In a proposal to change the process was put forward, but has yet to be implemented. Rumors have it, it will be implemented sometime in The change would require sponsors to apply first and be approved to sponsor before the applicant can submit an application. The change is to prevent application rejections due to dodgy sponsors. However, adding this hurdle will plausibly extend already long visa wait times.
Currently, the system works exactly opposite… the applicant must submit their application before the sponsor can submit their portion. Things to know before starting your Australian Partner Visa application:

Every dollar raised will go towards farming charity Rural Aid to spend on drought relief, including the proceeds of a Qantas charity charter from Sydney to Tamworth. Major parts of the 10 hour concert event, which started mid afternoon and concluded just before 11pm with a rousing performance by John Farnham, was featured in a television event on the Nine Network hosted by David Campbell, Sonia Kruger and Richard Wilkins.
Organised by agent and promoter Glenn Wheatley, the event was supported by numerous corporate entities including Toyota and West Tamworth League Club; the concert was staged at Wests Scully Park ground.
Archeological evidence in the form of whale remains discovered in burial mounds suggests that whales have been consumed in Japan since the Jōmon period (between c. 14, and BCE). Without the means to engage in active whaling, consumption at that time primarily stemmed from stranded whales. Surviving Ainu folklore reveals a long history of whaling and a spiritual association with whales.
This title came from the lyrics of a bridge [external link] that were not included in the album version of the song, but was played live in The instrumental version on the Money demo tapes did have the bridge. Check the Weirdo Discography for details. Later, another version came out, which was even more censored. The first version was censored in the following ways: Due to the edit’s complexity, it is likely Zappa’s own work.
The stereo balance on the “Hot Poop” excerpt is also reversed as compared with the actual song. This is also likely to be Zappa’s own decision.

San Francisco-based Le, who calls the current level of political debate “difficult to watch, even from a distance”, makes a similar point. Many of these wealthy refugees fear that Australia’s politically driven focus on asylum seekers is obstructing a mature discussion about the sort of immigration regime the country needs to maintain growth and overcome the risks of an ageing workforce. The whole thing is so mixed up completely.

Way before Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis and at a time when the guitar was linked to men and gospel music was purely religious, Sister Rosetta Tharpe managed to outplay many men with her guitar and to attract large audiences with her gospel-based lyrics, accompanied by secular-sounding music. Yet during her lifetime, she was rarely praised for her perseverance and her ability to break through any gender, musical, religious, or racial barriers.
The church was founded by Charles Harrison Mason in Mason encouraged women to preach in the church. In , when she was 23, Sister Rosetta left her husband and moved to New York City along with her mother. Those were the first gospel songs ever recorded by Decca. Tharpe established her name, and they made her one of the few gospel artists who had commercial success with their records at the time. However, the more popular she became, the less approval her music received from the gospel communities.
On several occasions, she performed with the Jordanaires, a white singing group. In the meantime, she also signed a contract with Reminder for seven years and was managed by Mo Gayle.

What has Jamie been up to since we last saw him? We’ve already discussed what we know about Season 3 of Outlander so far , so let’s talk about what we don’t know, and what we hope to find out when Claire Caitriona Balfe and Jamie Sam Heughan finally return to our screens. Of course, if you’ve read the third novel in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, Voyager, you know a lot about what the new season has in store I’m right there with you — although that doesn’t mean showrunner Ron Moore and his cohorts won’t throw in some deviations from the source material, just to keep us on our toes.
In the interests of letting non-book fans play along, we’re going to pretend that Voyager is not readily available to sate our curiosity, and just go with what we’ve seen on the show so far. How long will we have to wait for Claire and Jamie’s reunion? Season 2 ended with Claire, now around 50 years old, deciding to go back through the Standing Stones to try and reunite with Jamie after 20 years apart — but we know that Season 3 will feature flashbacks to catch us up with what the duo got up to during those two decades without each other.
Writer breaks down emotional scenes Does that mean we might have to wait several episodes before we see Claire travel back in time to seek out Jamie, or will the Season 3 premiere send her back pretty quickly, and fill in the blanks by jumping between time periods, as the Season 2 premiere and finale did? We know it’ll be worth the wait whenever it happens, but here’s hoping the writers aren’t too cruel when it comes to delaying our gratification.
What or who does Jamie do in their years apart? The Season 2 finale revealed that Claire became a surgeon when she returned back to her time, and she obviously had her hands full with Bree Sophie Skelton and Frank Tobias Menzies , but we don’t have much intel on what Jamie was doing in the years after Claire left him.
