Thousands of Italian Scientists Protest Strict Limits on Animal Research

first_imgScientists in Italy have petitioned lawmakers to revise a measure that sharply restricts the use of animals in scientific research. The controversial law, approved by the Italian Parliament in July, will soon go to the nation’s president for signature. It implements an E.U. directive on animal research, but critics say that Italian lawmakers added additional, damaging restrictions.A group of scientists organized the petition, titled Save Animal Research, which was delivered to Italy’s Chamber of Deputies today. The effort collected 13,000 signatures in a few weeks. “An amazing number, if you consider the uneasy topic,” says Stefan Treue, director of the German Primate Center in Göttingen.The Italian law would ban in 2017 the use of animals to study drug abuse research and xenotransplantation. It prohibits the breeding of dogs, cats, and nonhuman primates for scientific purposes, although the Health Ministry may authorize their use for basic research aimed at treating serious human and animal diseases. And it ends the use of animals in university science and medicine courses, with the exception of veterinary courses.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The petition, addressed to E.U. officials, declares that Italy’s restrictions violate E.U. rules prohibiting member nations from introducing more restrictive rules. “The European directive is fully compatible with the ethical respect for the animals and should have been incorporated in Italy without [additional] restrictions as in other European countries,” says Lamberto Maffei, president of Accademia dei Lincei (the Italian science academy). “Italy also risks severe sanctions from Brussels,” comments Roberto Caminiti, a physiologist at the University of Rome La Sapienza and chair of the Committee on Animals in Research for the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies.The latest version of the decree gives drug abuse and xenotransplantation research a 3-year reprieve from the ban. “On one side this gives us some time,” says Caminiti, who believes that the moratorium is an attempt to appease scientists while winking at animal rights activists. On the other hand, the delay “could be a risk for many of us, who plan to apply for international grants that cover longer time projects,” adds Giuseppe Remuzzi, a kidney transplant researcher at the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research and president of the International Society of Nephrology.According to Maffei, the scientific community should have worked harder to raise public awareness and opposition. “However, this is not the major problem,” he says. “Indeed, I point my finger to our shameful Parliament, incapable of recognizing the value of scientific research, thus setting our country toward a regressive trend.”last_img

5 Reasons Hiring Managers Don’t Call You After Interviews

first_imgImagine you’ve just left a interview that went perfectly well.You’re confident you aced the interview and that you’ll receive a job offer in a few days. After the job interview, you follow up with a thank you note and wait patiently for a response. However, two weeks go by and you still haven’t heard from the hiring manager. What happened?One of the most frustrating things job seekers experience during the hiring process is not hearing back from hiring managers. In fact, according to CareerBuilder, 60 percent of job seekers say an employer never informed them of a decision after the job interview.If you’ve been waiting to hear back from an employer after a job interview, here are five reasons (although none of them are good excuses) the hiring manager hasn’t contacted you:1. They found someone else to fill the position.The hiring process can change at any moment for an employer. For example, if an employer was interviewing external candidates but then received a referral, the employer might change their mind. Unfortunately, events like this can pop up during the hiring process when you least expect it.2. They think you’re overqualified.As strange as it sounds, it’s possible to be overqualified for a position. For example, if you’re applying for an entry-level position, but you have five years of industry experience, the employer may think you’d demand a higher salary or will leave the company once you find a better opportunity.3. They’re lazy.While most hiring managers are polite and considerate, there are those who are rude and fail to put the candidate first during their hiring process.Some hiring managers will brush aside candidates they believe aren’t qualified for the position. Because of this, they’re likely to move on to the next candidate and forget about your interview. If this happens, don’t get discouraged. This is probably a sign you wouldn’t want to work for the company anyways.4. They’re taking their time.On the other hand, the company’s hiring process might be extremely time-consuming, which is another reason why you haven’t heard back from the hiring manager.Keep in mind that a hiring manager may have five candidates or 50 candidates to interview. Most hiring processes have a number of steps that must also be followed to make a good hire; therefore it might be some time before you receive a response.5. The position no longer exists.Crazy things can happen during the hiring process. For example, a company can cut the budget for the department where you were applying for a job, causing the position to become eliminated. Unfortunately, this type of news can cause a hiring manager to forget about the candidates they’ve already interviewed.If you’ve been waiting to hear back from a hiring manager, remember that some things are simply out of your control. The best thing you can do during the hiring process is to be persistent and continue to follow up with the hiring manager until you hear a response.Have you ever experienced one of these scenarios after a job interview? How did you handle the situation?last_img
