Hiring A Pro For A Crime Scene Cleanup | Crime and DNA

In addition to doing mold testing and remediation, he offers a complete meth lab testing and cleanup as well as crime scene cleanup. Here, Tyrrell outlines how and why you should hire a professional to clean up a crime scene. The term crime scene technically refers to any area where a crime has taken place. Having a crime committed on your property can be traumatic and psychologically damaging. If this occurs in a property you own or rent, you may be surprised to know that the onus of cleanup belongs to you. Cleaning up after a crime yourself can make the trauma much worse, as well as [more...]

DNA testing acquits an Innocent man from Rape conviction

Certain portions of DNA are unique to each individual. This genetic information cannot be purposely altered in any way. DNA profiling is a way of establishing identity and is used in a variety of ways, such as for determining twins to be identical or fraternal, and for many other family-relationship identifications. DNA samples can be obtained from blood, buccal swab, hair root, saliva, semen and much more. Because no two individuals (with the exception of identical twins) are composed of the exact same genetic profile, DNA testing is the absolute means to confirm any biological relationship [more...]

DNA Evidence Clears 2 Men After 30 Years - Crime in the News ...

They confessed to rape and murder. They pleaded guilty and went to prison for decades; but they were innocent and DNA evidence proved it last week. On September 16, a judge in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, overturned the convictions of two of the three men serving time for the rape and murder of Eva Gail Patterson, in 1979. The third man, Larry Ruffin, died in prison in 2002. The Innocence Project organized DNA testing for the three men.

Home Genetic Testing for Alzheimer's?

That fact is even more important now that Walgreens is close to selling a home genetic testing kit that the Washington Post reported on Tuesday can scan genes for a propensity for Alzheimer's disease, breast cancer, diabetes and other ailments. The testing kit, marketed by Pathway Genomics, involves sending in a saliva sample to produce a DNA sample that is tested for genetic markers. The FDA acted quickly in criticizing the kit as lacking in safety, efficacy, and accuracy, and Walgreens announced yesterday that is postponing sales of the kit. In Alzheimer's disease, genetic testing is only [more...]

History Channel indicates first Native Americans were European

Scientists have recently discovered that "prior" to Asians crossing the Bering Strait about 10,000 B.C. to 15,000 B.C. (bringing us today what DNA testing companies consider "Native American") about 20,000 B.C. to 25,000 B.C. there was a migration out of Southwestern Europe of peoples of European origin who made their way along the Ice Sheets in boats in the Atlantic Ocean who settled in the Eastern United States. The oldest spearpoints ever found in North American have SW European origins not Asian origins - therefore, once again - if your family was from the eastern U.S. or eastern Canada [more...]

Newspaper Rock: "Actual Indian" defined

In Jocks Aren't Good Role Models, a correspondent questioned my use of the term “actual Indian.” She thought I was referring mainly to “full-blooded” Indians. No, I wasn’t—not even close. In this blog I’m usually inclusive about whom I label an Indian. The short version of who’s an “actual Indian” is “anyone whom Indians accept as an Indian.” More precisely, when Indians talk about who’s an Indian, here’s what I think they’re talking about—and therefore what I’m talking about. I’d say anyone who meets one or more of these criteria qualifies as an Indian. 1) [more...]

His passing was a watershed within my husband’s family for several reasons. He was the last WWII vet, having been on board a ship off the coast of Japan and much relieved at the time of the Japanese surrender.

For instance, is this a case of science moving at such a fast pace that social policy and ethical determinations have not had a chance to catch up? Many think so. Testing genes within DNA for mutations that are associated with specific diseases has many ramifications that need to be addressed before such technology is used outside the realm of scientific exploration and discovery.

What happens if a paternity test is denied? — Paternity Test UK

You can request a court ordered DNA paternity test. The court will order the mother to cooperate with the test and if she doesn’t she can be held in contempt of court. Again, this can vary from country to country and state to state. It is within the court’s discretion to look at the facts of the case and determine if a paternity test is necessary. Sometimes, issues such as hearsay evidence arise and you can be denied.

One striking finding was that among siblings, 20 percent had received a diagnosis of language delay or speech problems early in life.

In about 11 percent of families, more than one sibling has autism, and in many others, these subtle, quantitative signs and symptoms indicate many undiagnosed children are affected as well.

Dog Breeds – Why They Matter, and How They Came About « Family Pets

DNA testing shows that dogs evolved from wolves around 15,000 years ago after humans began selectively breeding them. Today, there is probably no other type of animal on the planet that is so diverse in terms of appearance while still remaining a single species. One dog breed can look totally different from another dog breed in different parts of the world – just compare a Chihuahua to a Great Dane, for example. So why should any of this matter to any owner? Because, besides coming in wildly different shapes and sizes, dogs also have equally diverse skills and temperaments, due to the [more...]

NY Times talks "Baby Daddy" bill

The law that (Carnell) Smith helped to pass in Georgia, like a similar one in Ohio, sets no time limit on using DNA to challenge paternity. The premise is that a man shouldn’t be punished for entering a paternal relationship that he would have avoided had he known the truth. It is, Smith says, a correction to a double standard that allows mothers and caseworkers to use DNA to prove paternity but prohibits men from using that same evidence to escape its obligations. But child-welfare experts counter that a child shouldn’t be punished by losing the only father she has ever known — or the [more...]
