Phylodynamics of foot-and-mouth disease virus O/PanAsia in Vietnam 2010–2014

Phylodynamics of foot-and-mouth disease virus O/PanAsia in Vietnam 2010–2014


Veterinary Research

Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) is endemic in Vietnam, a country that plays an important role in livestock trade within Southeast Asia. The large populations of FMDV-susceptible species in Vietnam are important components of food production and of the national livelihood. In this study, we investigated the phylogeny of FMDV O/PanAsia in Vietnam, reconstructing the virus’ ancestral host species (pig, cattle or buffalo), clinical stage (subclinical carrier or clinically affected) and geographical location. Phylogenetic divergence time estimation and character state reconstruction analyses suggest that movement of viruses between species differ. While inferred transmissions from cattle to buffalo and pigs and from pigs to cattle are well supported, transmission from buffalo to other species, and from pigs to buffalo may be less frequent. Geographical movements of FMDV O/PanAsia virus appears to occur in all directions within the country, with the South Central Coast and the Northeast regions playing a more important role in FMDV O/PanAsia spread. Genetic selection of variants with changes at specific sites within FMDV VP1 coding region was different depending on host groups analyzed. The overall ratio of non-synonymous to synonymous nucleotide changes was greater in pigs compared to cattle and buffalo, whereas a higher number of individual amino acid sites under positive selection were detected in persistently infected, subclinical animals compared to viruses collected from clinically diseased animals. These results provide novel insights to understand FMDV evolution and its association with viral spread within endemic countries. These findings may support animal health organizations in their endeavor to design animal disease control strategies in response to outbreaks.

UPDATED: Vietnam Responds with Spratly Air Upgrades | Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative


Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative

Vietnam is responding to China’s construction of military facilities in the Spratly Islands by modestly expanding its own capabilities in the disputed chain. New imagery shows that Hanoi is significantly upgrading its sole runway in the South China Sea—at Spratly Island—and constructing new hangars at that feature. This is a familiar pattern for Hanoi. Even amid reduced diplomatic tensions, Vietnam continues to modernize its military and seek closer security ties with Japan, the United States, and India in preparation for future Chinese assertiveness in disputed waters. Reuters recently reported that Vietnam had deployed surface to air missile platforms to the Spratlys. Hanoi has not confirmed those reports, but such countermeasures should not be surprising in light of the significant air power that China will soon project over the Spratlys.

Reminder: Donald Trump Avoided Vietnam Draft Because His Feet Hurt

Reminder: Donald Trump Avoided Vietnam Draft Because His Feet Hurt


Houston Chronicle

[...] appearances were apparently deceiving, because Trump nurtured a hidden pain: bone spurs. The 1-Y medical deferment he received in fall 1968 for bone spurs was one of five draft deferments he received in all, the Times reported. Trump stoically made no mention of his past bone spurs on Wednesday, when he told transgender Americans who have volunteered to serve that they cannot — “in any capacity.” Without them, who will replace the countless Americans who cannot serve due to bone spurs? Trump must have been truly unlucky: the Atlantic said he “would’ve been an extremely rare case to be debilitated by a spur at age 22.” McCain was imprisoned in 1967, a year before Trump entered his own prison — a prison of pain caused by bone spurs.

Netflix in Talks to Take Over 3rd ‘Cloverfield’ Movie From Paramount

Netflix in Talks to Take Over 3rd ‘Cloverfield’ Movie From Paramount

by Thom Geier and Matt Donnelly @ TheWrapTheWrap

The third film in producer J.J. Abrams’ “Cloverfield” franchise may not be coming to a theater near you.

Paramount is in talks with Netflix to take over rights in most territories for the space station-set film starring Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and David Oyelowo, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.

Director Julius Onah’s film — which was once titled “God Particle” — has bumped around Paramount’s release schedule. It was pushed last summer from Oct. 27, 2017 to Feb. 2, 2018. It was later moved to April 20 — still with no confirmed title, trailer or promotional materials.

Paramount had no comment; Netflix has not responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The film follows a team of astronauts aboard a space station who find themselves in danger after an experiment involving a particle accelerator makes Earth disappear.

The movie was re-engineered to be the third in Abrams’ series of “Cloverfield” films, which began with Matt Reeve’s 2008 found-footage monster-in-Manhattan movie and followed with Dan Trachtenberg’s 2016 thriller “10 Cloverfield Lane” starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead (pictured above).

Last month, Paramount forged a deal to give Netflix international streaming rights to the upcoming Natalie Portman-Oscar Isaac sci-fi thriller “Annihilation.”

Under that deal, Netflix will be able to stream director Alex Garland’s movie overseas less than three weeks after its North American theatrical release next month.

The “Cloverfield” maneuver is all the more surprising given that it risks alienating Abrams, who has served as a producer on two of Paramount’s biggest movie franchises, “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible.”

According to an individual who attended a Paramount town hall last fall, new studio chief Jim Gianopulos assured employees the studio was stable and would not be losing Abrams despite the sought-after filmmaker’s commitment to future “Star Wars” movies, including as director of next year’s “Episode IX.”

Oscars Box Office: Can Best Picture Contenders Turn Nominations Into Big Bucks?

Oscars Box Office: Can Best Picture Contenders Turn Nominations Into Big Bucks?

by Jeremy Fuster @ TheWrapTheWrap

For A24, Fox Searchlight, and all the studios that have a film contending for Best Picture at the Oscars this year, the race is on to try and convert the new attention their movies have received into a big box office bump.

“It’s time to strike while the iron is hot,” said comScore’s Paul Dergarabedian. “The biggest bump comes not after Oscar Sunday, but after the nominees are revealed and moviegoers head out to theaters to catch up. By the time Oscar Sunday rolls around, most films have run their course in theaters.”

The films that have most to gain are the ones that hit theaters very late in the year: Fox Searchlight’s “The Shape of Water,” Focus Features’ “Phantom Thread,” and Sony Pictures Classic’s “Call Me By Your Name.”

“The Shape of Water,” which opened wide on Christmas weekend, has done fairly well so far with $30 million grossed. Guillermo Del Toro’s fantasy romance hasn’t been in more than 850 screens during its run, but Searchlight will expand the film into over 1,200 screens this weekend to take advantage of its Oscar-leading with 13 nominations.

Searchlight’s other Best Picture contender, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” will have a tougher time adding to its $32 million total, since it has been in theaters since mid-November and isn’t expected to add many more locations beyond the 956 it screened in the last week.

Focus, meanwhile, has the biggest upside of the bunch with “Phantom Thread,” which was expected to earn a Best Actor nod for the retiring Daniel Day-Lewis, but ended up exceeding expectations with six nominations. Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama was released for a limited 70mm engagement on Christmas Day and didn’t expand nationwide until this past weekend when it made $3.3 million from 896 screens for a running total of $6 million. It will expand again this weekend into just over 1,000 screens.

“‘Phantom Thread’ was going to get a bump because it was an acting contender, but now that it’s in the running for Best Picture, it’s going to get a lot more interest even though it came out as late as you can get in the awards season calendar,” Dergarabedian said. “It’s still very early in its run so we could see it become a popular film for older audiences.”

“Call Me by Your Name” also timed its expansion schedule to the Oscar calendar, slowly making money as a hot ticket in limited release before expanding to 815 screens this weekend and making a $9.1 million total. Like “Phantom Thread,” “CMBYN” was expected to be a contender in several major categories, but its Best Picture nod ensures that it will be a must watch for Oscar completionists. Sony Pictures Classics is expected to expand the film, though an estimate is not yet available.

Outside of these three nominees, other Oscars contenders are already well into their theatrical runs. “The Post” has already done relatively well with $45 million grossed so far after expanding wide with 2,851 screens, but its bump should be minimal as its Oscar footprint is much smaller than expected. It went into Oscar season expected to be a major contender with a strong cast and allusions to today’s politics and media, but aside from its Best Picture nomination, it only got one other nod for Meryl Streep’s lead performance. Focus’ other contender, “Darkest Hour,” came out in mid-November and has made $41 million, but should also get a minor bump as it expands to approximately 1,300 screens as Gary Oldman becomes the heavy favorite to win Best Actor.

On the other hand, A24’s “Lady Bird” should continue to quietly endure all the way to Oscar Sunday. It has made over $1 million every weekend for a $39.2 million total since mid-November despite peaking at 1,557 screens a month ago. A24 may give the film another push, as Greta Gerwig, in her directorial debut, has become only the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director. At a time when diversity in Hollywood is a major topic and women in the industry are demanding to make their voices heard, Gerwig’s film and the performances by stars Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf have gained a timeliness that should keep it going at its current pace for the weeks ahead.

Finally, there are the two films that have by far made the most money out of this year’s field, but have already had their runs: Warner Bros.’ “Dunkirk” and Universal/Blumhouse’s “Get Out.” “Dunkirk” performed quite well this past summer, earning $188 million domestically and $525 million worldwide, landing it in the top 20 highest grossing films of 2017. The WWII film received heavy support from IMAX, who provided the cameras for it, and Warner Bros. marketed it as an event film that would best be seen on the big screen. With that in mind, WB will try to get a bit more mileage out of “Dunkirk” by placing it back on 250 screens this weekend.

As for “Get Out,” the film has already run its theatrical course since it was released almost a year ago. But it has already made its case, receiving critical acclaim and arguably becoming this year’s populist pick with $175 million domestic gross against a mere $4.5 million budget, with strong opportunities for post-theatrical revenue on streaming and rentals coming as movie buffs revisit it, or perhaps finally get around to watching it. Combined, “Dunkirk” and “Get Out” account for 64 percent of the $566 million in domestic revenue made by this year’s BP nominees, up 17 percent from the $484 million made by last year’s contenders.

‘Shape of Water’ Oscar Nominee Richard Jenkins Tells Us His Good Luck Ritual: ‘I Don’t Wear Pants’

‘Shape of Water’ Oscar Nominee Richard Jenkins Tells Us His Good Luck Ritual: ‘I Don’t Wear Pants’

by Umberto Gonzalez @ TheWrapTheWrap

Richard Jenkins, perhaps best known for playing the dead dad on HBO’s “Six Feet Under,” just earned his second Academy Award nomination on Tuesday for his role in Gulliermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” — and he hopped on the phone with TheWrap to tell us all about the excitement.

Asked if he had any rituals leading up to Oscar night, Jenkins said, wryly, “I don’t wear pants for two weeks.”

Of course, he was joking.

Jenkins, who was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for playing Giles, a lonely gay illustrator with a crush on the counterman at his local diner, got earnest real quick about his second Oscar nod: “It’s humbling and it’s really exciting.”

He emphasized his excitement for the 12 other nominations del Toro’s film received, calling the director “Guillermo the Great,” adding that “it’s rare to be part of something so special.”

“The Shape of Water” tells the story of a mute janitor (played by Sally Hawkins who was also nominated for Best Actress) who befriends a captured sea creature. It earned a total of 13 nominations when the nominations for the 90th annual Academy Awards were announced.

The film, a hit with critics, is also resonating with audiences, said Jenkins: “I have met a lot of people who identified with Giles.”

“Usually if they identified with Giles, the movie meant a lot to them,” the actor told TheWrap.

Jenkins, who is one of Hollywood’s most respected and in-demand character actors, first broke out in the early 2000s as the patriarch on “Six Feet Under.” He went on to receive his first Oscar nomination for the 2008 film “The Visitor,” and now with his nod for “The Shape of Water,” his profile will surely be on the rise. “My career has been filled with luck and I have no complaints,” he told TheWrap.

“The last few years have been fantastic,” added Jenkins. “Your career is something you look back on. If I look back on these last few years, it’s been rewarding and fulfilling — that’s really the important part. Do work that you love and play parts that are fun and challenging.”

The 90th annual Academy Awards will be hosted live by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 4 starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on ABC.

Toward a U.S.-Vietnam Strategic Maritime Partnership

by Truong Minh Vu @ Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative

Despite the complexities of the regional security environment and the sensitivities of the relationship between two former adversaries, it is fair to say that the current state of military partnership between the United States and Vietnam is at its highest point since diplomatic normalization in 1995. This strategic military rapprochement, however, has gone largely unnoticed by the Vietnamese public, as they worry more about a United States less engaged in the Asia Pacific under the Donald Trump administration.
