Courtesy Maxim Chukharev Related posts:U.S.: Liberty Reserve the largest money laundering probe in history Costa Rican President Chinchilla denies link to Liberty Reserve attorney Liberty Reserve: A cyberweb of intrigue Liberty Reserve: Suspects plead not guilty in fraud probe U.S. authorities estimate that Liberty Reserve had more than one million users worldwide, 200,000 of them in the U.S., and that the company conducted more than 12 million financial transactions annually, totaling more than $6 billion, according to the U.S. indictment. Authorities referred to it as “the bank of the underworld.”Liberty Reserve users could receive transfers of “LR,” or Liberty Reserve currency, from other users on Liberty Reserve accounts. Liberty Reserve charged a 1 percent fee, up to $2.99 per transaction, every time a user transferred LR to another user. For an additional “privacy” fee of 75 cents per transaction, users could hide LR account numbers, effectively making the transactions untraceable.In June 2010, the FBI set up a fake website that allowed users to buy, sell and exchange credit card data. The undercover site was allowed to operate for two years while the FBI monitored user communications in discussion forums and in private messages. That operation led to the June 2012 arrest of more than two-dozen people allegedly involved in trafficking stolen credit card data. The most preferred form of payment by users was Liberty Reserve, according to a special agent from the U.S. Secret Service assigned to the Electronic Crimes Task Force, who testified in an affidavit supporting Maxim’s extradition to the U.S.The affidavit also mentions a notorious ATM heist in May 2013 in which hackers stole $45 million from thousands of ATM machines across the globe. The thieves used Liberty Reserve to distribute the loot. The Department of Homeland Security said Liberty Reserve was used by online child pornography distributors, and the DEA said it was used by underground drug trafficking sites.Mastermind Budovsky was nabbed on May 24, 2013, in Spain. His codefendants include Liberty Reserve co-founder Vladimir Kats, 41, who was arrested in New York and pled guilty in October; Ahmed Yassine Abdelghani and Allan Esteban Hidalgo, who are free in Costa Rica; Azzeddine El Amine, also arrested in Spain; Mark Marmilev, arrested in New York; and Maxim, the tech guy.The seven men are accused of three felony charges of conspiracy to commit money-laundering, conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business, and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business, crimes that carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in U.S. federal prison. Kats also pled guilty to additional charges of receiving child pornography and marriage fraud.Much of the case seems fairly uncomplicated. But questions about the role Maxim played and whether he’ll get a fair shake are much less straightforward. Maxim’s parents say this isn’t the first time their boy has been unfairly targeted.***Fifteen years ago, shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, racial tensions in Uzbekistan were escalating, and blond children who were associated with Russia were being attacked. Igor, then 36, and Dina, 35, decided to take their two young boys, Maxim and Vadim, and leave.“It was nationalism at its worst,” Igor said. “We had the chance to live in Costa Rica and we didn’t think twice.”The Chukharevs arrived in Costa Rica, where Maxim’s uncle had immigrated before them, as tourists with no money. They told an immigration official they sought refugee status, and he sent them to the United Nations. At the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, a caseworker didn’t believe their story and rejected their refugee application, accusing them of lying about their Russian citizenship.“It was absurd to be accused of being expelled by Russia. Why would Russia expel its own citizens? That would be like kicking Ticos out of Guanacaste,” Igor said, still aggrieved over the 15-year-old episode.The Chukharevs became an immigrant family living in Costa Rica without legal documents. Igor is not proud of that period; he said he believes in rules and doesn’t like to break them. His sons, he said, were raised the same way.But “when you have a family, you do what you have to do.”Igor first worked as a pirate taxi driver in San José. Dina began helping out at a small boutique hotel in the eclectic neighborhood of Bario Amón. The couple eventually took over as administrators.At 12, Maxim attended a public school in Moravia, a northeastern San José suburb. His younger brother attended public schools and is “so Tico he doesn’t even know how to write in Russian,” Dina said.After a couple years, they moved to Santa Cruz, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, where Igor worked as a mechanic, and Dina a homemaker. They opened a small pulpería, the Costa Rican version of a corner store.Maxim’s interest in computers took shape shortly after his arrival in Santa Cruz, and at 15 he began helping a family friend at a computer repair shop. Maxim was good at fixing things, and he quickly learned to refurbish old computer monitors his boss brought back during trips to the west coast of the U.S.“Max was always fixing computers,” Igor recalled. “He practiced and he learned.” One of Arthur Budovsky’s Rolls Royces seized during May raids in Costa Rica. Courtesy OIJ Facebook Commentscenter_img Maxim also was listed as a “secretary” of WEBSA – which U.S. prosecutors say was a Liberty Reserve shell company – allowing him to purchase equipment, although he didn’t have direct access to company finances. In Costa Rican business nomenclature, socios, or shareholders, are the actual owners of a company, and being a secretary doesn’t necessarily entail company ownership or management.“We were providing IT services as a third-party service. In the meantime, we were an IT company, creating a web-hosting environment, working with clouding systems, with heavy Cisco routing and switching, a lot of interesting things in the IT field,” Maxim said.In September 2011, WEBSA moved into offices in Escazú, southwest of the capital, and continued providing services to Liberty Reserve’s data center, located in the Forum 1 office complex. WEBSA leased its services to Liberty Reserve, and Maxim insisted there are work contracts, copies of which were retained by Budovsky and Hidalgo.“Everything was legal; there was nothing weird, nothing strange,” Maxim said. “If you follow the logic of the accusations, even the cleaning lady should have been arrested,” he said.But that’s not how it went down, and dozens of employees were spared, according to Maxim.On Oct. 3, a judge in the western San José district of Pavas ruled in favor of the U.S. extradition request for Maxim. His attorneys, working pro bono on behalf of the family, appealed, and a final ruling is pending.In Costa Rica, a judge has 10 business days to rule on extradition appeals, but in reality, a backlog of cases often delays the process, sometimes up to two years. Meanwhile, Maxim and his parents are doing everything they can to prevent him from being sent to the U.S.“I have never been in the United States,” Maxim said. “I have nobody in the States, no family in the States, no friends in the States and no attorney in the States.” The worst part, he said, is that his parents wouldn’t be able to visit him. “They have no money.”A judge doesn’t need to determine innocence or guilt in order to extradite, so in Maxim’s case, the indictment handed down is enough to have him extradited, according to legal experts consulted by The Tico Times.Two of the charges – conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business – do not exist in Costa Rica’s Penal Code. That means that Maxim cannot be extradited or charged on those counts. But the third count, conspiracy to commit money laundering, is a crime in Costa Rica, and Maxim can be extradited on that charge.Still, he remains defiant, reaching out daily to his parents, his younger brother, Vadim, the Russian Embassy, and any reporter who will take his calls. He has evidence to prove he’s innocent, he said, but it’s impossible to access without a computer.“There is no proof, there are only suggestions, recommendations and speculation,” he told The Tico Times. “If you read the whole accusation, everywhere it says, ‘We have reasons to believe that he conspired.’”Yet with Kats pleading guilty, the scales of justice seem to be tipping against Maxim, and U.S. prosecutors seemingly hope to use Maxim’s testimony to nail Budovsky.“As a co-founder and operator of Liberty Reserve, Vladimir Kats served as a global banker for criminals, giving them an anonymous, online forum to hide the proceeds of their illegal and dangerous activities,” Bharara said on Oct. 31. “With his guilty plea today, we take a significant step toward punishing those responsible for creating and running this international den of cybercrime.”When asked about Kats’ guilty plea, Maxim said, “I don’t even know him.” Asked if he would cut a deal in exchange for testifying against his former boss, Maxim seemed nonplussed. “Why would I do that?” he asked.***Assuming for a second that Maxim’s bank account was nearly empty, that he wasn’t a principal at Liberty Reserve, and that he did not have access to millions of dollars the company managed in dozens of bank accounts around the world, why then, is he being targeted?The quick answer is to help convict Budovsky.But the Russian government has its own version of events, which starkly contrasts with the U.S.’ position. Russian officials insist the case is politically charged, just like a series of other cases in which Russian citizens were nabbed by the U.S. in third countries, a violation, Russian officials say, of a 1999 bilateral treaty that governs law enforcement requests between the two countries.“To justify their investigation, they need to catch someone, and the easiest option was Max. He’s not Costa Rican, he’s easy to extradite,” Igor said. “That company [Liberty Reserve] had managers, it had lawyers, and the names are all there.”According to a former Costa Rican prosecutor, Costa Rica likely made a deal with the U.S. not to arrest Costa Rican company principals until Maxim was in U.S. custody. This is because if evidence of wrongdoing is presented to Costa Rican officials, the Prosecutor’s Office is obligated to investigate and see the case through all the way to trial. That would mean the U.S. could be unable to extradite Maxim – and they might lose access to him entirely – if local charges are brought.Since May, a spokeswoman for Costa Rica’s Prosecutor’s Office has repeatedly declined to discuss the case, saying only, “The investigation is ongoing.”While newspapers around the world carried the story of the Liberty Reserve raids, few outside Maxim’s family, their close-knit rural community, and his former co-workers are familiar with Maxim’s case.The Miami Herald picked up his story, noting it has become the latest diplomatic entanglement in already strained relations between Russia and the U.S., particularly given Russia’s decision last July to grant temporary asylum to U.S. intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden.As the Herald noted, “In the past six months, Russians have been a frequent target of arrest warrants executed at the request of U.S. prosecutors.”Those cases include Aleksandr Panin, 24, who was arrested in the Dominican Republic on charges related to cyber-scams and online banking information theft; alleged arms dealer Dmitry Ustinov, extradited from Lithuania; Dmitry Belorossov, arrested in Spain on fraud charges; and Viktor Bout, an arms dealer known as the “Merchant of Death,” extradited from Thailand in 2011 and now serving a 25-year prison sentence in the U.S.“What’s going on is the smearing of Russian citizens. That’s evident. The Russian government cannot accept these actions because we have a 1999 treaty,” Dogadin told The Tico Times. “But in practice, the U.S. acts via third countries; they are practically exercising extraterritorial jurisdiction, and that we consider to be a vice and completely unacceptable.”Baryshnikova, Russia’s consular chief in Costa Rica, said, “The position is very clear: We don’t want our citizens extradited to the United States because it violates our treaty between Russia and the United States.”Russia also has declared U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara persona non-grata, meaning he can’t travel to Russia. Bharara appears on Russia’s “Guantanamo List,” a roster of 60 U.S. officials either linked to the U.S. military prison in Guantánamo, Cuba, or to cases against Bout, Yaroshenko and other Russian nationals.“It’s our greatest concern that [Maxim] could be sought [by the U.S.] because of his nationality, not because of the facts of the case,” Baryshnikova said.Russia isn’t alone in its concerns about the long reach of U.S. law enforcement into third-party countries. Europe and Latin America also are troubled, the Miami Herald reported.“It gives the impression that there might be a certain abuse of power from a powerful country,” Juan Carlos Esquivel, a Costa Rican lawyer who is president of the anti-money-laundering committee of the Inter-American Bar Association, told the Herald.U.S. officials scoff at the notion of any vendetta against Russian nationals. To them Maxim’s is a law enforcement case. Dogadin, however, pointed out that Costa Rica is in a “very difficult and delicate situation.”***While Maxim awaits his fate in a Costa Rican jail, his parents travel back and forth between Tárcoles and San José. They make the rounds of local newspapers, looking for a friendly ear. They meet with Maxim, who tells them what to do next. When he can, Maxim calls reporters on a prison phone, which allows for five-minute conversations that are interrupted every minute with a pre-recorded voice reminding the callee that an inmate of San Sebastián is on the other end of the phone line. Other inmates pressure Maxim to get off the phone.At first, Igor’s and Dina’s neighbors offered to help – after all, the Chukharevs had never received so much as a parking ticket. The neighbors were baffled about how the nice couple’s son was accused of being one of the leading criminal masterminds in modern history. Yet as the weeks wore on, their compassion transformed into soft-spoken apologies and averted eyes.“What can we do?” a friend asked Igor.He and his wife must simply wait, hoping the lawyers are good enough, or that a story in local media will help Maxim’s cause. Igor, Dina and Vadim visit Maxim in prison every week, time and money permitting. They fear that if he is extradited, they might never see him again. The mother of Maxim’s children would be left to raise their daughters alone.Reflecting on the last few months, Dina came to a sad realization. “We left Uzbekistan for another nightmare,” she said. At 16, Maxim moved back to the capital and attended San Marcos High School, in the center of San José near the Foreign Ministry. He didn’t graduate, but would later obtain an equivalent degree by studying at night school.At 19, he obtained his residency – but not citizenship – when his first daughter was born in 2005. He lived with his daughters’ mother for a couple years, but they were never married, and they eventually separated. Maxim continued supporting his family, although now that he’s in prison, that financial support has been cut off.While Maxim stayed in the city, Dina and Igor moved to Tárcoles, a working-class community on the central Pacific coast. For nearly a decade, they lived in a humble house with no electricity or working telephone. Igor landed a job working for a Canadian patrón as a mechanic, maintenance worker and animal caretaker. Dina is a homemaker, and between the two of them they earn about $1,600 a month, which now pays for electricity. Vadim, who has a family of his own, works as a waiter in an eastern San José restaurant. The members of the Chukharev family generally grew to like here.“Costa Ricans and Uzbeks have a similar dark sense of humor,” Igor observed. “We all help each other out. Whenever I go to the store, I ask the neighbors if they need gas, milk or whatever, and they do the same.”At 21, Maxim landed a job at Hewlett Packard, where he earned $400 a month. To make ends meet, he took a second job installing security systems at local businesses. One of those businesses was Liberty Reserve, and it was there that Maxim met Budovsky.The Russian-born founder of Liberty Reserve was impressed by Maxim’s knowledge of computing infrastructure and offered him a job. That was 2010, and Maxim didn’t know it at the time, but Budovsky had previously been convicted in the U.S. of running the same online currency business without a license.After he was paroled, Budovsky moved to Costa Rica, obtained citizenship through a sham marriage to a Costa Rican empanada vendor, and renounced his U.S. citizenship. He started up the same business with his old partner, Vladimir Kats, who would leave the company in 2009. Maxim believed Budovsky was a financial consultant, and Kats already had left the company when Maxim was hired.“They asked if we had networking. They needed help with their system, equipment and data center. I said yes. I thought [the data center] was somewhere around here, but it was in Holland,” Maxim said. “So, I said, ‘we have engineers, but we don’t have engineers who can travel and do a responsible job.’ And that’s how I made my first trip to Holland, to maintain their network and replace some old hard drives on their equipment, working with their technical team, which was located in the Ukraine.”Four months after Maxim returned from that trip, Budovsky called and gave him a full-time job at Liberty Reserve.“I worked for about six months at Liberty Reserve, and as far as I understood, Budovsky was there as a financial consultant,” Maxim said. “Six months later, Budovsky calls and says, ‘Hey, I would really love for you to come work for my company, WEBSA. We’re going to provide third-party service to Liberty Reserve, and we’re going to set it up as an IT company here in Costa Rica.’”Accepting the job meant Maxim would earn $1,800 a month, barely enough to support his two daughters, now 1 and 8, and buy a “piece of shit” car with monthly payments of $500.“I said, ‘Why not?’ And I was hired.”***On the morning of May 24, 2013 – three days after Maxim’s 27th birthday – 10 Interpol agents surrounded his father’s car as Maxim was leaving home.“Hands up!” they said. They pulled him from the vehicle, placing Maxim face down on the ground and then handcuffing him.According to Maxim, the agents searched the car, and when they were done, someone forgot to engage the hand brake and it rolled into a police cruiser. With Maxim in jail, a judge later ruled Maxim was responsible for the damages and had to pay for a new bumper on the police car, Maxim and his parents said.This was only the first in a series of grievances against their son, Igor and Dina said. Maxim’s lawyer, who is well versed in Costa Rica law, helped put the other perceived injustices into perspective.Of the eight defendants, Maxim is the lowest-level target, she said. Because he is still a Russian citizen with Costa Rican residency, U.S. prosecutors nabbed Maxim while allowing higher-level Costa Rican employees of Liberty Reserve to remain free. (According to Maxim and his parents, he was six months away from receiving Costa Rican citizenship when he was arrested, which would have prevented his extradition.)But even Maxim’s attorney admitted there are unanswered questions involving her client. When Budovsky was arrested in Spain, he was carrying credit cards issued to Maxim Chukharev. Authorities also discovered two bank accounts in Cyprus in Maxim’s name, and emails seized from Liberty Reserve servers in the Netherlands from Marmilev to Maxim appear to be the most damaging bit of evidence.Asked about these details, Maxim doesn’t hesitate: He didn’t know about the credit cards or the bank accounts, and it wouldn’t have been difficult for his former boss to steal his identity.The emails appear to show Marmilev, Budovsky and Maxim conspiring to create a website with fake data to fool Costa Rican financial regulators about transactions over $10,000, a key element of the money laundering conspiracy charges. But Maxim never responded to those emails, he said, and anyway it doesn’t matter because the fake system was never implemented.In the email exchange, Marmilev allegedly wrote, “We need to create special admin area ‘Government Admin Area’ (GAA) where Costa Rican government can view a few statistics. Majority of these statistics are going to be fake.”Maxim said he was only copied on those emails, and had been with the company only four months when the emails were sent.What was implemented, Maxim said, was a real system to account for suspicious transactions of $10,000 or more, a requirement by Costa Rican financial regulators. Liberty Reserve, he said, had hired a compliance officer to make sure the system followed local financial accountability rules.“The system is legitimate, it has nothing to do with what is written in the accusations,” Maxim said. “We were planning to flag every transaction that was more than $10,000.”Still, the evidence was enough for a Secret Service agent to recommend he be extradited. “I know from various sources that Chukharev … was deeply involved in maintaining Liberty Reserve’s technological infrastructure,” the agent wrote. Interviews by U.S. federal agents of former Liberty Reserve employees also confirmed that Maxim “was the person in Costa Rica who was responsible for maintaining Liberty Reserve’s information technology system,” he said.The agent also alleged that once Liberty Reserve managers realized they were under investigation by the U.S., they began moving millions of dollars out of accounts in Costa Rican banks. “At least two such shell companies, held in Cyprus, were opened in Chukharev’s name,” he said. “Budovsky was found to be in possession of credit cards in the name of Chukharev and these shell companies, indicating that Chukharev opened the underlying accounts as a nominee for Budovsky.”The agent said he believes there is probable cause to try Maxim on conspiracy charges, and that Maxim’s efforts to “thwart oversight by Costa Rican regulatory authorities” proves his knowledge of the conspiracy.To Maxim, this is all hearsay. Would an IT employee at a bank be responsible if that bank laundered drug money? What about PayPal and Bitcoin?“My opinion … is that [the case against Maxim] is impossible and illogical,” said Alexander Dogadin, Russia’s ambassador to Costa Rica. “This is a young person who was employed not by Liberty Reserve, but by WEBSA, which is another company, and who was receiving a modest salary. He doesn’t have anything, no properties, for example, so how could he participate in this multi-million-dollar operation? It’s illogical.” A Liberty Reserve office left in disarray after police raids last May. Courtesy OIJ Maxim Chukharev’s mother, Dina, is restless. Sitting at a conference table in a newspaper office, she launches into her story in impetuous Spanish peppered with a thick Russian accent. Mid-sentence, she pauses to answer a cellphone. She excuses herself. Out in the hall, she switches to a rapid-fire conversation in Russian. She’s loud, and it’s hard to hear what her soft-spoken husband, Igor, is saying.Despite the commotion, Igor takes his time explaining how their son, Maxim, a bright, young computer programmer who immigrated to Costa Rica with his family from Uzbekistan during a period of political upheaval, wound up at the center of what the U.S. government says is one of the biggest money laundering cases in history.U.S. prosecutors claim the Costa Rica-based online currency company Liberty Reserve, shuttered last May, helped launder a staggering $6 billion over seven years, mostly the result of criminal activities including credit card theft, identity theft, drug trafficking, investment fraud and child pornography.If Hollywood had scripted the indictment against Liberty Reserve’s eight defendants, founder Arthur Budovsky, who currently is in a Spanish prison fighting extradition to the U.S., would be Auric Goldfinger, plotting to launder the world’s criminal proceeds. Maxim would be one of those banal, uniformed brains in the background, helping to build the IT infrastructure that ran the cyber-bank of the underworld. While Bond parachutes to safety with his beloved Pussy Galore, local authorities lead Maxim to a U.S. federal pen.But to Dina, 48, and Igor, 49, who sometimes still view world events through the prism of Cold War politics, Maxim – the oldest of two sons – is a patsy, targeted by the U.S. government because of his Russian nationality and a zeal to nab Budovsky, who already had dodged prison once before.Maxim is not a criminal mastermind, Dina and Igor say, but rather an earnest employee trying to provide for his two young daughters; someone who wanted to better himself, who never had more than $5,000 in his bank account and who drove to work in a used car while other Liberty Reserve principals raced about in Jaguars and Rolls Royces.“When a person works for a company, and that company is legally established here, it pays taxes, why should that employee have to be aware of laws in the U.S. or England or Argentina?” Igor asked.Locked up for the past six months, Maxim has had plenty of time to ponder that question.***In a photo sent from inside Costa Rica’s San Sebastián Preventive Prison, Maxim wears a staid look that belies his boyish features. His short-cropped blond hair sets him apart from the other prisoners, and the dark circles under his eyes suggest the last six months in cellblock A1D4 have taken an emotional and physical toll.Although Maxim has lived in Costa Rica since he was 12, because he’s Russian, other prisoners treat him like a foreigner, which places him lowest in prison hierarchy. For the first few weeks, he shared a cell built for 44 inmates with 77 others, often sleeping on the floor. When he got sick, it took prison officials two weeks – and the intervention of the Russian consul – to allow him to see a doctor, according to Russia’s consul in Costa Rica, Ekaterina Baryshnikova.“It’s hell,” Maxim said. “There are a bunch of thieves and killers in here, I don’t wish this on anybody. I’ve lived [in Costa Rica] for the last 15 years, I speak Spanish with no accent, but I’m still white and blond, and this is good enough to be different in here.”At the time of his arrest, U.S. officials had just shuttered Liberty Reserve’s website, and Costa Rican cops accompanied by U.S. agents were raiding the offices and homes of company principals throughout the Central Valley.The massive raid was coordinated by the Costa Rican Prosecutor’s Office, the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ), Costa Rica’s judicial branch, the Costa Rican Drug Institute, Interpol, the U.S. Justice Department, the U.S. Secret Service, the IRS, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.The bust was the culmination of an investigation that had lasted years, spanned several continents, and led to the indictment of eight people by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whom The Washington Post recently named the “most prestigious and powerful prosecutor” in the United States.last_img read more

(Denis Dainat/EPCC-CERP Tauvalel via AP) Parents, stop beating yourself up PARIS (AP) — Two students have found a human tooth from about 560,000 years ago in a famous prehistoric cave in southwestern France, a discovery praised by archaeologists as the oldest human body part ever discovered in the country and being rare from that period in Europe.The tooth was found last week during excavations at Tautavel, one of Europe’s most important prehistoric sites, where about 40 volunteers are working under the supervision of scientists. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Paleoanthropologist Tony Chevalier, researcher at Tautavel’s archaeological laboratory, called it a “major discovery.”Chevalier told The Associated Press that the adult tooth would help fill a gap between the very few oldest human fossils, notably found in Spain and Germany, and more recent ones.Thousands of finds on the site include prehistoric tools and bones from animals, especially horses, reindeers and buffalos.“We believe these men have lived for a long time in the cave or have regularly come back into it,” Chevalier said. “We also know that the area was quite cold at the time. It was a steppe, with no trees. There had to be some long periods with snow.”These latest findings haven’t been the subject of a scientific publication yet, but Tautavel is recognized as a reference by archaeologists all over the world.There have been excavations at the cave for about 50 years and it’s famous for the discovery of 450,000 human skull in the early 1970s, known by scientists as the “Tautavel Man.”Christian Perrenoud, a geologist and archaeologist who has been director of Tautavel’s excavations for nine years, told the AP that his team used several dating processes to determine the age of the tooth. 5 treatments for adult scoliosislast_img read more

in May at the University of California San Diego Jolynn Wilson Brown “This is a crisis” says Ry Young director of the Center for Phage Technology at Texas A&M University which studies phage treatments for superbugs “People are completely unaware of the danger we are in” Indeed the scope of the threat posed by superbugs remains poorly understood by the general population despite the fact that the World Health Organization calls superbugs an imminent threat to human health What’s more there isn’t much hope on the horizon when it comes to new drugs “There are no new antibiotics coming and if they do come bacteria tend to develop resistance to the drugs within a year” says Young The paucity of treatment options is fueling interest in phage which some researchers are calling a critical weapon against the kind of infections that threatened the lives of Mallory Smith and Tom Patterson For now however phage is not widely available in the US Only a handful of people have received it and it requires special clearance because it isn’t yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Before phage can go mainstream the science needs to catch up–which experts are hopeful will happen in 2018 when a number of trials will kick off in the US If the science bears out phage’s promise it would be life altering–and life saving–for the millions of people around the world who contract superbug infections every year Mallory Smith received the therapy at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in November Jacob Jonas Phages are the most ubiquitous bacteria fighters on the planet Scientists estimate that there are over 10 million trillion trillion phages which is more than any other organism in the world Phages work by injecting their DNA into bacteria cells where they rapidly replicate causing bacteria to burst open and die What’s special about phages is that for the most part each strain attacks only a specific kind of bacteria that they’ve evolved to kill which means phages provide a more personalized approach than say broad-spectrum antibiotics which target a wide range of bacteria–even the good kind Despite the elegance of the treatment the Western medical community had all but abandoned it until very recently Discovered by Frederick Twort in England in 1915 and Félix d’Hérelle in France in 1917 (there’s debate about who was truly first) bacteriophages were used in the US and around the world to treat infections throughout the 1920s and ’30s Even back then however the treatment was divisive in the medical world “From the very discovery of phage this field has seen personal attacks disputes of priority massive egos and international politics” wrote Dr William Summers a medical historian at Yale University in a 2012 paper on phage “All of these are part of the rocky history of phage therapy” When mass production of antibiotics took off in the 1940s and ’50s doctors moved away from phage and embraced the drugs Today more than 266 million antibiotic prescriptions are written in the US per year In the last century scientists in Eastern Europe continued to use phage but in the US it fell out of vogue developing a reputation as being an unsafe and clunky treatment Modern phage researchers say that’s because when phage therapy was first used in the US 100 years ago other aspects of science were too poorly understood (This was after all before the discovery of DNA) Still the reputation stuck Today people who want to try phage therapy are required to get what’s called an “emergency investigational new drug” application from the FDA indicating that they are out of other treatment options and are very sick That’s how Strathdee’s husband Tom Patterson was able to try it In late 2015 Strathdee and Patterson a professor of psychiatry at UCSD were celebrating Thanksgiving in Egypt when Patterson became violently ill Diagnosed with pancreatitis Patterson was flown for treatment to Frankfurt where physicians discovered that he was infected with a deadly superbug called Acinetobacter baumannii Patterson was given potent antibiotics and eventually got the green light to travel back home to San Diego Patterson was put under the care of several doctors including his friend Dr Robert “Chip” Schooley a professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases at UCSD “Tom was as sick as he could be” says Schooley “He was either going to die or we were going to come up with something very different” As an infectious-disease expert Strathdee understood the threat of antibiotic-resistant infections all too well She felt helpless watching her husband die so she started researching alternatives A colleague mentioned that a friend of hers had once traveled to Tbilisi Georgia to receive something called “phage therapy” and came back “cured” Strathdee approached Schooley about giving phage a shot Although he wasn’t convinced it would work he agreed With an emergency approval from the FDA Patterson was given a phage cocktail on March 15 2016 and another two days later Three days after that he woke up from his coma “I am still weaker than I was before” says Patterson who is back at work “But I feel I have a new life entirely and it’s wonderful to have that gift” Since Patterson’s success story was announced to the public in April 2017 nearly all the physicians involved in his care receive weekly emails from people whose loved ones are suffering from superbug infections (Strathdee also landed a deal for a book on the subject It’s due in 2019) Experts are hopeful that before too long phage will clear FDA approval making it more widely available to the people who need it most Phage therapy has some unique benefits over antibiotics For one bacteriophages can be found everywhere on earth even in sewage Second it attacks only the targeted bacteria not the so-called good bugs in the host Third it can be done quickly: scientists can create a phage cocktail and provide it to patients within 48 hours of a superbug-infection diagnosis in some cases And even though bacteria can become resistant to phage there are an infinite number of strains of the viruses–not so with antibiotics During Patterson’s treatment the bacteria grew resistant to his initial phages but the doctors were able to tweak the treatment with new strains until he cleared the infection Proponents of phage research say the treatment will never replace antibiotics altogether–for routine infections the drugs will always be more convenient and easier to use But if phage is approved by the FDA it could become a powerful antidote to increasingly common superbug infections For that to happen researchers need to perform clinical trials that produce a better understanding of the basic mechanisms of phage therapy so that successes in one person can be replicated in other people at scale In 2018 two small biotech companies in the US–AmpliPhi Biosciences and Adaptive Phage Therapeutics (APT)–will launch clinical trials that will attempt to answer some of the key questions about phage Bacteriophages which are viruses attack by invading and replicating inside drug-resistant bacteria causing them to explode D Simon Lee—;Getty Images/Science Source “In the future if we can cut the time down phage might be better than antibiotics” says APT founder Dr Carl Merril Merril a former National Institutes of Health scientist came out of retirement at the age of 80 to launch APT in October 2016 Merril has long been an advocate for using phage–he was featured in a 1971 issue of TIME for his work on the viruses–but his research never made it beyond the lab and into human testing Merril says he had long since given up on the possibility that phage therapy would ever become a mainstream treatment That is until Strathdee called him for advice about how to save her husband’s life “This is sort of like a dream” says Merril who advised doctors on how to administer phage to Patterson It was Patterson’s stunning recovery that inspired Merril to start APT “I am very old and I remember what it was like before penicillin” says Merril “I lost a lot of my classmates It could happen again If we don’t deal with antibiotic resistance in real time it will get worse” APT is working on perfecting ways to scan bacteria samples against a massive library of bacteriophages that was collected by the US Navy Using proprietary algorithms that rely on artificial intelligence APT then hopes to be able to quickly match bacterial strains with the phages that might be able to thwart them Merril envisions a time when APT can provide pharmacies with kiosks of phage strains which APT has already trademarked as PhageBanks If his dream comes true then within one hour infection samples would be screened and matched with the appropriate phages which could be dispensed from the kiosks in single-dose vials APT estimates that there’s a $60 billion market opportunity for phage-based treatments Researchers caution that before that happens–before phage is embraced as a standard treatment as opposed to an experimental last resort–there’s a lot of work to be done “It’s unsustainable how we are doing it now” says Texas A&M’s Young who worked on both Tom Patterson’s and Mallory Smith’s cases “Every time we try phage on a new patient it’s automatically a crisis because you have someone who is dying Everyone wants to help but we need a system” Young says he worries that if mistakes are made in the rush to get phage to patients the field could end up in “we told you so” territory “People should understand that an old therapy is back” he says “But it’s not yet commercially exploitable” Since treating Patterson in 2016 the medical team at UCSD has treated three other people using phage and two appear to be doing well “Thank God for Steffanie” says Josephine Willson whose husband John was treated with phage at UCSD in May after contracting a resistant Pseudomonas infection “If she didn’t fight for her husband I wouldn’t have mine here today” Josephine says her experience with her husband’s infection which he’d been fighting for over six months before receiving phage therapy has woken her up to the ever growing threat of superbugs “All I knew was that overuse of antibiotics could be detrimental at some point in time” she says “I did not know we are already at a point where antibiotics cannot kill a bacteria you have I did not know that” Schooley who now travels across the US educating medical groups about phage says tackling the superbug problem will require more education as well as better use of antibiotics and new therapies “We need to use antibiotics intelligently” says Schooley “But even if we stop using every antibiotic there is there will still be multidrug-resistant organisms We need to minimize their ongoing evolution by using antibiotics appropriately in the hospital and in agriculture–and we also need to think about novel approaches to head off these superbugs” Many scientists have renewed hope that phage will be one of those solutions “An international community has been galvanized” says Strathdee “We need to keep up the momentum” Mallory Smith’s parents also want to help phage research continue so that it may one day help other people–even though it couldn’t save their daughter By the time the phages made their way to Mallory in Pittsburgh it was too late She started the therapy but died the next day “We were two days short” Strathdee says “Mallory’s case symbolizes so much” Contact us at editors@timecom This appears in the December 25

thing With the eliminator game between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) finishing a little before sunrise there was much criticism about IPL not having reserve days for vital games But the Board getting space in the international calendar is as likely as Danny Morrison getting space in between his shrieks in commentary There are more private T20 leagues than ever before so IPL will be crammed in-between two events of lesser importance every year But wait didn’t hundreds of spectators wait for hours at Chinnaswamy for an innings that ended in 20 minutes Didn’t all of India’s pub bouncers security guards and BPO employees watch that It only means there’s space for a night IPL That’s why Team India toured the USA last year right They don’t teach fielding or catching in school anymore The number of catches dropped this season was over 70 which means more than one for every game on an average Worse the virus was across teams and players —some won despite the dropped catches and some lost because of that The fielding and running between wickets was at best mediocre too and for a league that prides itself in flaunting young players’ athleticism it was an eyesore Evidently elementary coaches do not bother teaching about keeping an eye on the ball and all that any more Umpires need an alternate career The umpiring howlers came a close second to the dropped catches They came in all sizes and kinds —from a knick that wasn’t heard to an inside edge that wasn’t seen Hundreds of our collective minutes were wasted when the umpires this season asked

gratitude That there was a report of a few ladies still waiting for actual cheques to show up was another matter BCCI’s attitude towards women’s cricket is summed up by two things —a recent Indian

feeling bad about Rahul Dravid Whenever the Daredevils collapsed this season there was generous footage of a dejected Dravid leading to much sympathy on social media Why Wasn’t he as accountable as

of her upcoming Bollywood film Simran During the trailer launch of Simran Kangana Ranaut said that Apoorva Asrani was given all the dues for writing the film She went on to add that his act of writing a note when her film Rangoon flopped was in bad taste and extremely deliberate The 31-year-old actor said “There is a lot of misconception regarding this I would like to clarify there are no dues pending It has been made to look like he hasn’t been given his due whereas we have done exactly what he asked for” She further added “He suggested I take additional dialogue credits All the documents and contracts were signed too Post that we also worked for a schedule together After many months he decided to write this note when ‘Rangoon’ flopped and 2-3 people attacked me which I thought was in

environmental clearances and stalled by problems of land acquisition for eight years the $126 billion Posco steel plant in Odisha has finally been approved by the Union environment ministry a few days before South Korean President Park Geun-Hye’s official visit The Posco plant is India’s biggest foreign direct investment and arguably a litmus test for resuscitating FDI inflows choked by the pervasive delays in project clearances Since taking over as environment minister in December 2013 M Veerappa Moily has cleared about 15 projects including the Tawang II hydel project and the Teesta IV hydroelectric project The delays over the tenures of two consecutive environment ministers were due to a political irresolution and cussedness that has contributed towards bringing GDP growth to a decade’s low of 46 per cent for the first half of 2013-14 down from 93 per cent in 2010-11 Posco signed the deal with the Odisha government in 2005 and the project had been strongly backed by both Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Despite this the firm had to appeal recently to the Competition Commission of India and the Project Monitoring Group The steel plant has now been judiciously de-linked from the port project to expedite clearance for the former but it is important to recall the enormous hurdles that were placed in its path including evaluation committees packed with environmental activists certain to vote against every project In Posco’s case one expert group claimed 70 per cent of the area was forest but a former environment secretary found the land was mostly sandy with scrub forest While one major expert objection was that no attempt had been made to identify the tribals who would be dislocated the ministry itself had to admit the site was not a Fifth Schedule Area In the process the steel plant and port project was reduced from 4000 acres to 2700 acres and Posco also pulled out of its $53 billion steel plant in Karnataka The cabinet secretariat has sent Moily a list of 27 stalled major infrastructure projects one of which was Posco The Posco project has the potential to create 48000 jobs make an annual value addition of Rs 3530 crore and add upwards of Rs 12000 crore each year to Odisha’s GDP At a time when India desperately needs foreign exchange and FIIs are either exiting or vacillating FDI flows need a

played and scored some incredible goals for the state and academy teams and made sure the sweet sound of success was heard by people all over India He stayed faithful to the academy when others ran for the exit and continued to make constant endeavours to take Chandigarh back to its glory days But nowthat seemingly indefatigable spirit is broken and Samuel is begging for more time to enjoy his gameto show the selectors what had escaped under their noses The sands of time are running out for him For a player who seemed predestined for successall that are left now is a flagging hope of a better tomorrow Just a few days agohe seemed to the first choice of the selectors when he stepped on to the pitch along with his teammates in the Bajaj Allianz football camp Longing for some actionthe eventwhich was held to select five best players from India and give them an opportunity to train in MunicgGermany at Allianz Arenathe home to Champions League and Bundesliga winners last yearBayern Munchen FCseemed to be the perfect foil to prepare for the season to come But that dream was short-lived Samuel and his teammates made exit from the tournament at the semi-final stagemeaning that somebody else got the opportunity to fly to Germany for the training camp That person turned out to be Inder Mohanwho is Samuel’s teammate at CFA While it ushered a new chapter in Inder’s lifeit meant more agony for Samuel If failing to make it to the final in the above mentioned tournament was not enoughthe nagging tendon injury made his life more miserable The pain aggravated and snatched from him the opportunity to display his skills in the pre-Subroto Under-17 football tournament When a player has been the best of his kindthe pain of being deprived of working his magic on the field becomes cerebral rather than physical “I am a bit disturbed right now The tendon injurywhich he has been nursing for longhas been nagging me MoreoverI had hopes pinned on making it to the football

football when the UT academy team created ripples in national and international tournaments Their easy on eyes gamebuilt on trust and mutual understandinghas often helped Chandigarh finish on the

display in the last tournament which they played togetherthe Administrator’s Cup which the CFA team wonand before that the Manchester United Premier Cupwhere the academy team reached the quarter-finals of the South East Asia finals held in Indonesia last year With assistance from both Daniel and LalramzauvaSamuel emerged as the best player in the NorthNorth East and East qualifiers of the MUPC held at Jamshedpur and later on in Indonesiawhere he was chosen as one of the five best players of the tournament Howeverthe trajectory of their career has changed While Daniel and

Howeverdue to lack of major tournaments and exposurehe could never attract the attention of the selectors again In the last one yearwe have hardly played any tournament To put his case forwardSamuel

where they could play tournaments on a regular basis When nine of his teammates ran for the exitSamuel wanted to join them too but Harjinder managed to coax him to stay put “He is a very sincere player but when his other teammates left for other academiesSamueltoowas attracted by the prospect of getting the opportunity to play for the AIFF Regional Academy in Mumbai Had he gone therehe certainly would have earned a spot in the team But I persuaded him to stay here And since most of the players have left the academyinstead of midfieldwe have to play him up front in tournaments” said the former international But Samuel’s success lies in midfieldwhere he can marshal the midfield with his exquisite skills Lacking the physical presence and the big strides needed to make a good strikerSamuel could not repeat the same success as a forward “That is one of the reasons why he has been overlooked by the selectors because they look for players blessed with good heights for international tournaments” said the coach There is no doubt that nobody could match Samuel’s feet but he is too callow to withstand the physical atrocities of the demands of big tournaments “He will be successful in the midfield as he has tremendous footwork I have told him to work on his strength There are two three big national tournaments lined up in the coming months and I am sure he will

have to queue up outside government offices or wait for days to receive documents such as learner’s licences driving licences voter ID cards and ration cards as the AAP government is planning to make these services accessible through a mobile-based application Sources said the plan will first be implemented on a pilot basis in the transport department within two months following which it will be extended to the food security department the department of food and supplies the social welfare department and the revenue department among others For those “who are not computer savvy” the government has offered to send over its staff to the applicant’s house to complete the paperwork and issue the document Home and Transport Minister Satyendar Jain said “Instead of citizens coming to the government the government will go to them This is a first of its kind revolutionary concept of governance It is meant to computerise all government interactions with the public save time and paperwork and mitigate corruption” Jain had earlier stated that all services currently extended through the 12 regional transport offices (RTOs) in the capital will be computerised and the RTOs will be shut down “All work will now be done through the mobile phone application or through call-ins” said Jain For the project the government has outsourced work to a private company “A call centre will be set up to respond to calls and queries related to the mobile application Nearly 2000 persons will be employed for executing call-in services They will be given e-tablets” said sources For instance when a person calls up the government for a learner’s licence or transfer of vehicle certificate they will have to furnish their name address and proof of identity The staffer will then visit the caller at their house at a day and time of their convenience said sources If the caller has an Aadhar card the staffer will take the caller’s finger and iris scan on his tablet and match it against the Aadhar database In case another proof of identity is furnished it will be verified by the staffer in the following days The caller’s geo-location will also be recorded at the residence as part of the verification process Sources said recording these details is a one-time process for each individual When a person opts for e-service the first time he/she will get a personal database added the sources Watch Video: What’s making news “A transfer of vehicle certificate a learner’s licence or an NOC will be furnished immediately after an applicant’s verification is done and cleared at his residence A permanent driver’s licence or a fitness certificate will be posted to the applicant’s residence a day after they take a driving test or get the vehicle checked” said Jain He added “Whatever we are spending on the e-service is much lesser than what we are currently spending on paperwork and other costs of operation It will bring down costs in a big way” Sources said it has not been decided if there will be a cut in government jobs as a result of the e-governance system “It is unlikely that government staffers will be laid off They will be given other duties in the same department since there is staff shortage everywhere” said sources For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | London | Published: November 4 2016 10:08 pm The

News Formula One’s governing body got it wrong twice over with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel at last weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix according to former race winner and television pundit Johnny Herbert Stewards promoted and demoted the German to and from the podium after he tangled with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo and then let him off for hurling abuse at race director Charlie Whiting over the radio Herbert told Reuters that while he welcomed the airing of communications between driver and team as an insight into the stresses of racing Vettel’s swearing at Whiting had gone too far “The worst thing was the stuff directly at Charlie I thought that was out of order and something should have been done about that one It’s a step too far” said the Briton Herbert who won three grands prix between 1989 and 2000 and was Michael Schumacher’s team mate at Benetton in 1994 and 1995 said a race ban would have been too hard but a grid penalty or fine could have been imposed The FIA said on Tuesday that its president Jean Todt had decided “on an exceptional basis” not to take disciplinary action against the four-times world champion after he apologised “You are hearing a frustrated Sebastian Vettel coming out with all this stuff and we want to hear it But you know you’ve got to be sometimes careful with what you say and how you say it” said Herbert “We heard it it was directed at Charlie in a very rude manner which is unacceptable He should have got something He got off scot-free” Vettel finished fourth on the road in Mexico but was promoted to the podium after Verstappen was demoted to fifth for gaining an advantage by going off the track while defending against the Ferrari driver The Dutchman had refused to cede position to the German on the track triggering the expletive-laden rant by Vettel who then clashed with Verstappen’s team mate Ricciardo After a stewards’ investigation Vettel was then handed a penalty that demoted him to fifth for a dangerous move while defending his position elevating Ricciardo to third and Verstappen to fourth Herbert felt that penalty was another wrong decision “I’m surprised he (Vettel) got something for that That’s what I want to see was there anything wrong with it It was a squeeze there wasn’t anything wrong with it” he said “I’m ‘let them race let them get on with it’” Speaking at Blackwell’s Holborn bookshop in London where he was promoting his autobiography ‘What Doesn’t Kill you…” Herbert also said something had to be done to ensure drivers kept within the track limits “I remember when I was racing I would try and take a little bit of the track if I knew I could get away with it” he said “I’m still of the thinking that track limits are track limits Full stop Whatever the argument I keep
