 recently, Beckerle, 62, was picked by Vice President Joe Biden to serve on a blue-ribbon panel as part of his campaign to cure cancer, reported the Salt Lake Tribune (http://bit.ly/2erPtuv).
Biden's panel, which completed its report in September, was tasked with advising the National Cancer Advisory Board on new cancer treatments and investments in cancer research.
"Having a female role model who was really a dynamic person and very passionate about biology gave me a sense that, as much as I loved biology, I had an opportunity to do something in that space," she says.
After graduating, she toyed with the thought of going to medical school, but found herself "captivated by biomedical research and teaching."
 when Maryland-based Johns Hopkins University began recruiting her for a department chair position at its medical school, she took the offer seriously.
Compared with the classic battle between development groups and activists, the forces in this decade-long scuffle are friendly, or at least familiar with each other.
 as Las Vegas developer Jim Rhodes restarts an effort to put a master-planned community on a hill overlooking Red Rock Canyon, the groups are again in conflict.
The proposed development, near the town of Blue Diamond on a hill where Rhodes' Gypsum Mine unearths the mineral used in plaster and chalk, would extend east in the direction of the Red Rock Visitor Center.
Opposition groups worry that a master-planned development is an encroachment on Red Rock.
When Nevada and Clark County passed rules in 2003 that prohibited increased density near Red Rock's outlying areas, Rhodes' company successfully challenged the statutes in court.
Before the vote, the panel's chairman cited concern that the plan might deviate from the county's comprehensive master plan and that ongoing Gypsum mining and processing could impact residents after they moved into the development.
After years of negotiations, though, the agency denied that request because it saw little resource value in the Gypsum land, largely because of years of mining activity that the BLM saw as a liability.
Krater said the land is going to be developed regardless and argues the master-planned proposal is a balanced approach that tries to correct many of the past concerns.
South Africa has decided to withdraw from the International Criminal Court following a dispute last year over a visit by Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the tribunal for alleged war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.
The decision comes after another African nation, Burundi, this week signed legislation to become the first to withdraw from the ICC — raising concerns that states have begun to act on years of threats to leave over what they call the court's disproportionate targeting of the continent.
The charges against al-Bashir stem from the bloodshed in Sudan's western Darfur region, which began in 2003 when rebels took up arms against the government in Khartoum, accusing it of discrimination and neglect.
According to South Africa's document, its withdrawal will take effect one year after U.
Asia shares drift lower as investors factor in Fed rate hike
HONG KONG (AP) — Asia stock markets drifted lower Friday as investors bet that the Fed is closer to rate hike because of the brightening U. S. corporate and economic outlook.
Most U. S. companies have been posting quarterly earnings reports that have beaten analyst expectations.
ANALYST INSIGHT: "While expectations for a December Fed rate hike are continuing to build, investment markets seem to be taking it a bit better than was the case in the run up to last December's eventual rate hike," Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy at AMP Capital, said in a report.
The official exchange rate for the Chinese currency yuan fell to a six-year low against the dollar of 6.7558 yuan as investors bet that an eventual interest rate hike in the U.
