AUTHORITES INVESTIGATE EXPLOSION NEAR BOARDWALK IN SEASIDE PARK AT START OF CHARITY 5K RACE

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Seaside Park NJ ,  Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino announced that authorities are investigating an explosion in a trash can near the boardwalk in Seaside Park, N.J., that occurred this morning as a charity 5K race was about to begin.

No one was injured in the blast, which is being investigated by the New Jersey State Police, FBI, U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Ocean County Sheriff’s Department and Seaside Park Police Department. All of those agencies are at the scene.

Attorney General Porrino and Colonel Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, have briefed Governor Chris Christie on the incident and the investigation into the blast.

“Working with the FBI and ATF, we are taking every step to ensure the safety of the public and to determine who was responsible for this explosion, which occurred at a time when runners in this charity race could have been in harms way,” said Attorney General Porrino. “We are grateful that nobody was injured, but this is a serious act of violence against the people of New Jersey. We will not rest until we find the person or persons responsible.”

The explosion occurred at approximately 9:30 a.m. The Semper Five 5K run had been scheduled to begin shortly after 9 a.m., but the start was delayed and no runners were in proximity to the trash can when the explosion occurred. The race was canceled after the blast.

Authorities cordoned off the scene of the explosion at the corner of D Street and Ocean Avenue and are conducting a search of the surrounding area. No additional explosions or secondary locations have been identified. Initial reports of a second device found in another trash can have been refuted. However, State Police bomb technicians have rendered safe items located in the same trash can in which the explosion occurred.

Law enforcement partners have been performing a wide search in the area and roads remain closed during the ongoing search and investigation.

No suspects have been arrested in connection with the explosion. Attorney General Porrino urged any with information related to the explosion to call the New Jersey State Police Homeland Security Tipline at 1-866-4SAFENJ.

EBOLA PUTS FOCUS ON DRUGS MADE IN TOBACCO PLANTS

EBOLA PUTS FOCUS ON DRUGS MADE IN TOBACCO PLANTS

By MALCOLM RITTER
— Aug. 15, 2014 10:22 AM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s an eye-catching angle in the story of an experimental treatment for Ebola: The drug comes from tobacco plants that were turned into living pharmaceutical factories.

Using plants this way — sometimes called “pharming” — can produce complex and valuable proteins for medicines. That approach, studied for about 20 years, hasn’t caught on widely in the pharmaceutical industry.

But some companies and academic labs are pursuing it to create medicines and vaccines against such targets as HIV, cancer, the deadly Marburg virus and norovirus, known for causing outbreaks of stomach bug on cruise ships, as well as Ebola.

While most of the work in this area uses a tobacco plant, it’s just a relative of the plant used to make cigarettes.

“It’s definitely not something you smoke,” said Jean-Luc Martre, a spokesman for Medicago, a Canadian company that’s testing flu vaccines made with tobacco plants.

Medicago has a new production facility in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Once approved by federal authorities, it’s expected to be able to make 30 million doses of seasonal flu vaccine a year, or 120 million vaccine doses to fight a major outbreak of “pandemic” flu if the government requests it.

Tobacco use on all NJ college campuses would be banned under bill to be considered today

Tobacco use on all NJ college campuses would be banned under bill to be considered today

TRENTON — Smoking would be banned on all New Jersey college campuses under a bill set for a committee hearing today.

The bill, sponsored by state Assemblywoman Celeste Riley (D-Cumberland), would prohibit lighting up on the grounds of any institution of higher education, public or private.

“The thought behind it is that we as a society should be promoting a healthy lifestyle. And our institutions of higher learning are where our kids go,” Riley said. “They’re in an environment where it is teaching them to be not only intellectually smart. But we should also teaching them to be healthy, vibrant citizens. I feel smoking goes completely against that. We should be promoting the healthy side of life.”

But the bill doesn’t stop at smoking. It would also ban the use of smokeless tobacco products on college campuses, such as chewing tobacco and dip.

Riley said she did not think the bill would ban electronic cigarettes. “That will be something we’re going to discuss,” she said.

New Jersey has banned smoking in college dorm rooms since 2005. According to the American Cancer Society, at least 17 New Jersey colleges banned smoking on campus as of January 2013. (Friedman/Star-Ledger)
