A young womans quest to find her Greek father in Australia

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Growing up, Kirsta Bowman, a 28-year-old music teacher from New Orleans, Louisiana who was adopted at birth and was raised in upstate New York, never expected that her biological father was of Greek descent.“I remember being bullied at school for my curly hair and tanned skin but little did I know that my biological father was in fact Greek,” says Kirsta who after recently losing both her biological mother and her adopted mother, decided to go on a quest to find her father.After undertaking a series of DNA testing, Kirsta came face-to-face with an unforeseen discovery.“I found out that I am 50 per cent Greek, and I suspect that my Greek father is likely to have been a sailor who travelled the world and then either settled in Australia or returned to Greece. The results also showed that I have further connections with people from the area of Messinia in the Peloponnese,” says Kirsta who was born on 4 December, 1990 and resides permanently in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.Kirsta’s biological mother, Reba McBryde worked at cafés and Greek bars on Dectaur Street in New Orleans, a popular street in the French Quarter. She spoke fluent Greek and was heavily involved with the Greek community that was in the district.Sailors from Greece used to visit the area and spend time at the bars in the late ’80s. The young woman believes that it is highly probable that her biological father was one of those Greek sailors, who met and became romantically involved with her mother before continuing on his onward journey to Australia or Greece.Kirsta’s mother Reba, back in the US, where she met Kirsta’s father.The Greek district where Kirsta’s mother met her father in New Orleans.Kirsta’s mother Reba, back in the US, where she met Kirsta’s father.Interestingly, according to Kirsta, all her paternal DNA matches are nowhere near the vicinity of New Orleans, where she was conceived. The closest genetic connection to her paternal side are second and third cousins who live in Australia.“The only information I have are some common surnames, the closest connection being the name Apostolopoulos and Giannopoulos followed by Bisbikis, Politis, Stokas and Petropoulos. But I understand that my father, if alive, could be anywhere in the world,” says Kirsta who has already managed to track down her maternal half sister and brother.“Meeting them was a life-changing experience which has encouraged me to keep going until I find my father. I understand that he might not wish to have a relationship with me, but at the same time I have gone 28 years wondering: Who is he? Does he know I exist? What are his interests? Do we share the same love for Greek traditional music? Do I get my love of history and cooking from him? Do I have any other siblings?“These are questions that gnaw at me daily. As much as I may not like the answers to some of my questions, I feel it is within my right to have them answered.“Please help me find him,” she pleads.READ MORE: Baby without a name grows into a man on a quest to find familylast_img read more

Greek visitors urged to protect themselves against West Nile virus outbreak

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram An unprecedented outbreak of mosquito-borne disease in Greece last year has caused health officials to urge holidaymakers to take precautions against West Nile virus.Danai Pervanidou, head of the national organisation for public health (Keelpno) said that there is a public health issue.“The virus has established itself in Greece through migratory birds and we are recommending that everyone takes personal protective measures such as wearing long sleeves, avoiding places with stagnant water and using mosquito nets and repellent,” she said.Last year, a record 316 people were infected with the virus, including 50 deaths.Those who are infected usually do not display any symptoms, while 20 per cent experience mild flu, and only 1 per cent go on to develop a serious illness.Visitors to Greece are urged to take precautionary measures.last_img read more

Immigration Museum proposed name change seems to be off the table

first_imgNeos Kosmos on the 3rd of August reported on a proposed name change for the Immigration Museum. The uproar arose after a Herald Sun report, indicated the Immigration Museum was looking to change its name to Museum of Shared Humanity. The CEO of Multicultural Arts Victoria, Veronica Pardo, passed off the concern as pure “semantics”, yet misgivings from ethnic communities ran much deeper.George Lekakis OAM, the Former Chairperson of Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) and former Chair of Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) said, “The name honours the preservation of humanity’s largest movement of people across the globe”.Mr Lekakis then called on the Victorian Government to “recognise that it’s time for the Immigration Museum to have its own board and manage its own resources, dedicated solely for the purposes this iconic institution was originally established”.Contrary to the Herald Sun report, the Immigration Museum’s General Manager Rohini Kappadath was adamant a change of name is not on the cards – as yet.Lynley Crosswell the CEO and Director of Museums Victoria, stressed that Museums Victoria “have no intention at this stage on name change”.The Museums Victoria CEO also expressed her desire to bring communities to the table.“We need the guidance and advice of the established and traditional communities,” she said.READ MORE: Immigration Museum: Adrift or a new path?Neos Kosmos can confirm that Museums Victoria and the Immigration Museum will continue with consultation around Immigration Museum Strategy and Content plan.We have on good authority, that Museums Victoria and the Immigration Museum are putting final touches on a consultation that will be rolled out in September and include meetings with peak bodies such as the VMC, Australian Multicultural Foundation, Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria and Centre for Multicultural Youth.Neos Kosmos can confirm that Museums Victoria and the Immigration Museum will also run public forums in October and November across metropolitan Melbourne, and will try to do the same in regional centres.Neos Kosmos can ratify that the General Manager of the Immigration Museum Ms Kappadath has had meetings with former Chairs of the VMC, Mr Lekakis OAM, and Mr Stefan Romaniw OAM among others.The Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley at the time of the first report said to Neos Kosmos: “The importance of bringing all multicultural communities along during the ongoing consultation process has been made clear and the museum will consult with all those involved over the coming months. No changes to the museum’s name, exhibitions or other operational matters have been decided or finalised”.The Minister made clear that “any new initiatives will be in addition to the longstanding work it does in collaboration with our multicultural communities, with their stories and history continuing to be at the heart of what the museum does.”Neos Kosmos will continue to follow the story and we look forward to reporting on the process of consultations as they occur.READ MORE: Immigration Museum’s General Manager says name change not on cards – as yet Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Florida Police ‘Evict’ Alligator After It Wandered to Hair Salon

first_imgStay on target In Florida, the Port Richey Police Department had to “evict” an alligator after it accidentally wandered to a nearby hair salon.On May 2, the Port Richey Police Department shared a Facebook post on the strange incident. A few days earlier, the reptile reportedly traveled too far from its habitat and made a pit stop at Hair Obsessions, KTLA5 News reported. Officials aren’t sure how the creature chose its destination, however, it’s likely the animal just wanted to check out the “latest updos and balayage treatments.” Georgia Man Catches Gigantic 14-Foot AlligatorHunters Catch ‘Monster’ 13-Foot Alligator in Mississippi River center_img “On 04-30-2019 an unexpected guest showed up at Hair Obsessions Salon in Port Richey. However, the guest was not there for a haircut or color,” Port Richey Police Department wrote on Facebook. “The gator left his home and wandered up to surrounding businesses.”Thankfully though, Captain Koch, Sergeant Russo, and Officer Runge of the Port Richey Police Department arrived at the scene and were able to help the alligator go back home. No one (including the gator) was hurt in the process.Alligators are apparently curious about houses as well: On April 25, a “nosey” alligator reportedly knocked on a woman’s door and peeped inside her window on a hot day. The large alligator, which was 7 to 8 feet in length, just wanted to say “hello.” Last month was the start of mating season for alligators, which is maybe why this alligator decided to show up as an uninvited guest.More on Geek.com:Watch: Two Leopard Cubs Rescued After Falling Into Water TankResearchers Put Fake Wings on an Ostrich to Learn About Flying DinosaursNASA Is Working With Cute Seals to Study Antarctica’s Ocean Environmentlast_img read more

Claudio Ranieri Inter Milan must move on from Modric

first_imgFormer Inter Milan manager Claudio Ranieri has urged the club to move on from their failed attempt at signing Luka Modric from Real MadridThe Nerazzurri had made Modric their top target of the summer transfer window after deciding to not go ahead with permanently signing Rafinha Alcantara from Barcelona.Despite their best attempts though, Modric is set to remain at Real after celebrating his sixth anniversary with the club on Monday.Ranieri, who managed Inter in the 2011/12 season, feels that the club’s pursuit of Modric meant that they have neglected other options that may have been more feasible.“Modric? He would certainly have carved deeply,” said the Italian coach on Calcio Mercato.“I do not know the details of the operation well, but I have the impression that focusing on a champion like him has excluded the search for an alternative solution.”Rick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R.

Melinda Gates wants to fight sexist data

first_img Share your voice Bill Gates Steve Jobs Microsoft Now playing: Watch this: For these women, working at Amazon while pregnant ends… 1:56 Gates isn’t the only high-profile, tech-connected woman to speak out on social issues lately. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg published her book, Lean In, in 2013, encouraging women to advocate for themselves and others at work more often. Laurene Powell Jobs, who runs the Emerson Collective, a combination think tank and investment firm, and has begun investing in journalism like The Atlantic, Axios and Pop-Up Magazine, education and art exhibits.Gates, 54, discussed growing up in Texas, watching space launches that her aerospace engineer father had worked on. She got her start in technology early, when one of her teachers was inspired to get an Apple computer for students to learn on. Gates and her friends signed up and learned along with their teacher. In college, Gates studied computer science and soon found her way to Microsoft. She said one thing she didn’t like about working there was the “abrasive” culture. Within two years, she thought about leaving, in part because she found it had begun to wear off on her and she didn’t like who she was becoming.  Instead, she decided to push up against the company’s culture and ended up staying for nine years. “Even though it was abrasive, I loved what we were creating,” she said. She left working for Microsoft when she had her first child, but she said Bill Gates encouraged her to find something to do within a few months. “He knew how much I liked to work,” she said. “He knew I had that side of my brain, and I wanted to keep that alive.” In 2000, that work became the foundation, which has since become the world’s largest private charitable organization. And in 2015, she started Pivotal Ventures, an investment firm outside her foundation, focused on supporting women and families in the US. That’s all helped make her into one of the world’s most influential people, routinely showing up on the Forbes Power Women lists, among others.(FILES) Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates (LAn early focus for Bill and Melinda Gates was vaccines. Here, in 1998, they announced a childhood vaccine program for the developing world. Getty Images Incomplete dataOne of Gates’ passions is contraception. She discussed it as giving choice to families in developing worlds who often fear having another kid because they won’t be able to feed and educate them. “Contraceptives allow us to time and space the births,” she said. In one case, she shared the story of a woman she met who adored her children but begged her to take them back to the US for a better life. “To give them away to a stranger, you have to know how destitute their situation is,” she said. As she began tackling these issues, though, she learned the data isn’t fairly tracked. For example, she said, economists don’t track unpaid labor at home that women statistically do more of. On average, she said, women do 90 minutes more of chores or parenting than their partner, a phenomenon she called a second shift after work. “Economists, which in the beginning a male-dominated field, measured productivity as ‘productive work,’ work you did in the workplace,” she said. “We have look at this unpaid labor and figure out how to recognize it and reduce it, and we have to redistribute it.” “I used to think the data was objective,” she said. “But in fact, data is actually really sexist.”She learned that when surveyors ask what income there is in a house, the men speak up first. Then the surveyors don’t usually follow up with the same question for the women. As a result, their incomes and their lives outside the home aren’t counted. “We don’t collect data on women, and we don’t collect data on their lives,” she said. “We have to invest in good data.” Culture Tech Industry Computerscenter_img 0 Some data points that frustrate her are that less than 2% of VC funding goes to woman-founded businesses, and even less for women of color.  And although the 2018 midterm election in the US saw a historic number of women run and win, in part as a response to the #MeToo movement, Gates noted that still only about a quarter of Congress is women.  “At its current rate, it’ll be 60 years until we have parity in Congress,” she said. “My oldest daughter will be 83.” That’s part of what inspired her to write the book and do the speaking tour, she said.  “I really feel like we have this window of opportunity, y’know, between the #MeToo movement and so many women coming out and running for elected office in 2018,” she said. “But these windows open and if we don’t take full advantage of them, they pass us by. I want to make sure we use this window to create equality around the world.” First published May 6 at 10:20 p.m. PT.Update, May 7 at 5 a.m. PT: Adds details. Tags Post a comment Melinda Gates’ first book is part autobiography, part call to arms over women’s issues. And she’s even pitched it with Oprah. Getty Images One of Melinda Gates’ pet peeves is that when people would discuss her and her husband’s roles at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, they’d call him the brains and her the heart. “That’s complete bull,” she said. “Bill absolutely has a ginormous brain, but guess what, I have a pretty big brain too. And I have a really big heart, but guess what, my husband has a really big heart.” Perhaps it’s fitting, then, that after nearly 20 years as a philanthropist, set to strategically give away the vast majority of their tens of billions of dollars from when Bill Gates co-founded and ran Microsoft, Melinda has written her first book to discuss what she’s learned. The book, part autobiography, part call to arms, is called The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World. It was released last month and has become a New York Times bestseller. She came to Dominican University of California in San Rafael, about a half hour north of San Francisco, to discuss it in an event Monday with the singer and actress Mandy Moore. We don’t collect data on women, and we don’t collect data on their lives. We have to invest in good data. Melinda Gateslast_img read more

BNP wont accept ALs pollstime cabinet Noman

first_imgAbdullah Al NomanBNP senior leader Abdullah Al Noman on Tuesday said the formation of an election-time small cabinet by the current government to oversee the next polls will be illogical, reports UNB.“It’s illogical to form a unilateral small cabinet by the current government and we’ll not accept it,” Noman told a human chain.Bangladesh Sammilita Peshajibi Parishad, a platform of professional bodies, formed the human chain in front of the National Press Club demanding BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s proper treatment and her unconditional release from jail.Talking to newsmen at the secretariat earlier on the day, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Qauder said the polls-time government will be formed in the middle of October.The size of the government will be like the one formed last time and there will be no technocrat in it, Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, added.Countering Quader’s statement, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) vice chairman Noman said, “We think people have no confidence in the current regime. So, the election can’t be held under it.”He said their party together with people will force the government to accept their demands, including formation of a non-political neutral election-time administration with a strong movement.He warned that the government will not be able to suppress a vigorous and united street movement with repressive acts and using the administration like other ‘autocratic’ regimes. “Ayub Khan, Yahya Khan and Ershad also failed to survive and finally got defeated.”Criticising the government for what he said not releasing their ailing chairperson Khaleda from jail, the BNP leader urged his party colleagues to get ready for freeing her by ensuring the fall of the regime through a strong movement.”The case was filed against Khaleda Zia with a political motive. So, we’ll have to face it politically,” he observed.Noman said though their chairperson is seriously ill, the government is not providing her with proper treatment. “We’re very concerned over her health condition. We call upon the government to ensure her treatment in a specialised hospital.”The BNP leader said the government should free Khaleda immediately so that she can play a role in overcoming the political stalemate ahead of the national election.last_img read more

Biden And Trump Taunt Each Other Over Who Would Win High School

first_imgGene J. Puskar/APFormer Vice President Joe Biden got into a verbal tussle with President Trump over who would win a fight, just before announcing a three-part “Plan To Put Work-and Workers-First.”Does real life begin after high school? Well, 71-year-old President Trump and 75-year-old former Vice President Joe Biden may have never left the schoolyard.On Tuesday, Biden spoke at a University of Miami rally in Florida against sexual violence and said, “A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it.’ “Biden added, “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”It’s a taunt he has traded with the president on several occasions.Trump responded to the latest Biden comment on Twitter on Thursday morning, boasting that the former vice president “would go down fast and hard” if the two got into a tussle.Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy.

Trophic coherence explains why networks have few feedback loops and high stability

first_img Ecosystems need maths not random nature to survive This point’s impact, Johnson continues, is based on the fact that feedforward loops can often be related to some form of feedforward control (as used, he notes, by engineers working on assisted automobile steering). “Therefore, feedforward loops in certain biological networks – gene regulatory networks, in particular, but also others such as neural networks – are thought to play an important role in how such systems work. In food webs, feedforward loops are associated with omnivorous species, which have often been reported to have an effect on ecosystem stability – although some say that effect is positive and others negative!”The researchers are also investigating whether negentropy – the opposite of entropy, and in which a physical, thermodynamic or biological process creates order – are affected by trophic coherence. “The modern concept of entropy,” Johnson points out, “comes from statistical physics and is a property of ensembles, as described above – that is, the entropy of an ensemble is simply a function of the number of elements it contains.” Moreover, he adds, graph ensemble entropy has proven to be a powerful tool for understanding various network properties. We are currently studying the entropy of the coherence ensemble we defined for this work. “In general, higher trophic coherence would be associated with lower entropy states, which means that if networks are more coherent than the random expectation there must indeed be some kind of negentropic process at work.” Johnson notes that the impact in this case relative to trophic coherence would be found in quantifying the extent to which different empirical networks have been driven from their maximum entropy state. “This might be the best way of discovering when there are coherence-inducing mechanisms at work, how much energy must be involved, and ultimately identifying the nature of such processes.”Phys.org also asked Johnson if there are scale boundaries to trophic coherence – for example, is trophic coherence applicable to nanoscale systems or structures, or to quantum mechanics (in which eigenvalues are highly relevant)? “This is an interesting question,” he replied. “We haven’t thought much about this yet – but there’s no reason in principle why trophic coherence shouldn’t be relevant in other settings than the ones we’ve considered, and at other scales. Although we’ve been thinking about trophic coherence as a property of networks, it could just as easily be regarded as a property of matrices, which have many different interpretations and applications in science. Could the concept of trophic coherence be extended to the complex, Hermitian matrices describing quantum operators, for instance?” (A Hermitian matrix is a square self-adjoint matrix equivalent to its own conjugate transpose.) “If so, what would the effect of coherence on eigenspectra mean for physical observables? We hope these and other open questions will attract the attention of researchers in the relevant fields, who may be able to take the work further.”Johnson also noted that while certain natural systems are unsurprising given their trophic coherence, this is not always the case. “Most of the things we measured in our set of empirical networks were actually close to what we would predict given their trophic coherence. The exceptions were a couple of food webs which, curiously, have no cycles despite being in the loopful regime – but this doesn’t imply, by any means, that everything is determined by a network’s trophic coherence, since there are a great many other quantities which we haven’t yet considered. What was somewhat surprising, however, was that while the gene regulatory networks seem highly coherent, they are all actually rather close to what would be their random expectation, which is due to their tendency to have many basal nodes.” Johnson explains that these networks – which he says underlie all the processes that cells are capable of performing, and determine the various kinds of cells they can turn into – must have been fine-tuned by evolution in myriad ways. “It seems therefore surprising that their trophic coherence shows little deviation from our random expectation. On the other hand, the metabolic networks are all highly incoherent, as compared with the random expectation, but we have as yet no idea why this might be.”Other coherence- or incoherence-inducing mechanisms would presumably alter a network in such a way that the probability of an edge occurring between two nodes depends on their trophic levels, he continues, pointing out that this might happen because trophic levels reflect some other node characteristic, their intranetwork function, or their position in one or more dimensions. “For example, in the case of food webs,” he illustrates, “there are several biological features of species which are related to trophic levels, so it is natural that if a given predator has specialized in consuming species A, it is more likely to prey also on B if A and B are at similar levels. However, in some ecosystems species can also occupy different positions in space – for instance, they might exist at different depths in a lake – which could also affect coherence. Moreover, in a social network, people might interact with others according to their job, or their status – but neurons, genes, or words in a text are connected to others, which have particular functional roles. While we’d expect to find mechanisms which led to edges forming preferentially between nodes according to these kinds of features, functions, or dimensions, there are probably other ways which we haven’t yet thought of.”Another question is how concepts such as trophic coherence might be understood when a distinction between excitatory and inhibitory interactions is made. “There are at least two ways in which it might be useful to define trophic levels, and thus coherence, in this case. One would be simply to attribute a negative value to inhibitory interactions, but keep other definitions broadly the same, so that trophic levels could be either positive or negative,” Johnson tells Phys.org. “Another is to separate the effects of excitatory and inhibitory interactions as if they were in different networks, so that each node would have two different trophic levels, and there would be an excitatory coherence and an inhibitory one. This fits in with work currently being done on so-called multiplex networks. In the end, we would have to see which definition proves most useful for understanding real-world networks.”Moving forward, Johnson says, he and his colleagues are investigating avenues that follow from the research under discussion, such as extending the concepts of trophic levels and coherence to a broader class of networks – for example, those with weighted edges or many layers. “We then hope to use these in conjunction with other well-established network measures to identify functional groups of nodes in specific systems, such as gene regulatory networks or ecosystems. Another of our interests is the integration of these results within a more general mathematical framework relating structure and dynamics in complex systems. Finally,” he concludes, “there are questions in ecology that this work might illuminate, including how best to model food webs, and whether there are network properties of ecosystems that could alert us to the risk of a tipping point, such as a cascade of extinctions.”Johnson adds that he and Jones are both working on several other topics as well as networks. “For instance, I have various ongoing collaborations with people at Warwick and Granada looking into the relationship between human conflict and geography, or how certain findings in neuroscience can be understood and modelled mathematically.”Regarding other areas of research that might benefit from their study, Johnson says that the most immediate would be complex networks and graph theory, where our results should be of interest to people studying graph ensembles, the relationships between different topological quantities, or the stability of complex, dynamical systems. “As mentioned above, there are some results which are particularly relevant for ecologists, especially those engaged in modelling ecosystems. We hope that some of these ideas will be picked up by researchers in other areas where systems can be fruitfully regarded as networks – I have mentioned genetics, but there are several others, such as neuroscience, sociology, or economics – and developed further.” Dr. Samuel Johnson discussed the paper that he and Dr. Nick S. Jones published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “Demonstrating that trophic coherence is a property found in a wide range and scale of ecosystems and networks was actually easier than we had expected,” Johnson tells Phys.org. “We’d previously identified trophic coherence as an important property of food webs1, in which our main result was the role trophic coherence played in ecosystem stability.” (Food webs are ecosystem networks of species trophic levels – that is, what a species eats, and what it is eaten by – and in fact, the word trophic derives from the Greek τροφή (pronounced trophē), which refers to food or nourishment.) “Ecologists have long characterized species in food webs by their trophic levels, so the idea of measuring how well defined these levels were seemed very natural.”However, he points out that while researchers have, over the last 15 or so years, defined and studied a great many quantities associated with complex networks, it appears that the role of trophic levels in networks other than food webs have not been studied. “All we had to do was get the data other researchers have made available for various different kinds of networks, and measure the trophic levels and coherence associated with them, he explains. “Then, when we set about developing a mathematical framework that could relate trophic coherence to other network quantities, one of the first steps was to derive equations for the expected values of trophic coherence and mean trophic levels in random graphs – that is, the values we’d expect a network to have if the edges had been placed randomly between the nodes. This in turn allowed us to investigate a given empirical network and conclude, for instance, whether it was more or less coherent than if it was random.”Regarding their derivation of analytic mathematical expressions that show looplessness is a likely consequence of trophic coherence, Johnson recounts, the scientists could see intuitively – or by drawing pictures of networks with greater and lesser coherence – that this property was related to the likely number of cycles (or loops) in directed networks (that is, those in which the links, or edges, have a direction). In order to study this relationship mathematically, he adds, they employed the statistical physics method of ensembles – virtual collections of a large to infinite number of identical systems whose behavior are inferred from the ensemble’s aggregate behavior – which has been used to study random graphs. Four directed networks, plotted so that the height of each node on the vertical axis is proportional in each case to its trophic level. The top two are synthetic networks, generated in a computer with the ‘preferential preying model’, which allows the user to tune trophic coherence (measured with the incoherence parameter, q). Thus, they both have the same numbers of nodes and edges, but the one on the left is perfectly coherent (q=0) while the one on the right is more incoherent (q=0.7). The bottom two are empirically derived: the one on the left is the Ythan Estuary food web, which is significantly coherent (it has q=0.42, which is about 15% of its expected q) and belongs to the ‘loopless’ regime; the one on the right is a representation of the Chlamydia pneumoniae metabolic network, which is significantly incoherent (q=8.98, or about 162% of the random expectation) and sits in the ‘loopful’ regime. The top two networks are reproduced from the SI Appendix of Johnson et al, “Trophic coherence determines food-web stability” (PNAS, 2014), while the bottom two are from the SI Appendix of Johnson & Jones, “Looplessness in networks is linked to trophic coherence” (PNAS, 2017). Courtesy: Dr. Samuel Johnson. More information: Looplessness in networks is linked to trophic coherence, PNAS (2017) 114(22):5618-5623, doi:10.1073/pnas.1613786114Related:1Trophic coherence determines food-web stability, PNAS (2014) 111(50):17923-17928, doi:10.1073/pnas.1409077111 The scientists credit a moment that proved key to their investigation. “Our crucial insight was that given its trophic coherence, we could associate the expected number of cycles in a network, with the probability that a particular kind of random walker on a line would return to its starting point.” Random walkers – imaginary objects whose movement is determined a random selection between two or more choices at each increment, or hop. “Random walkers have proven useful concepts in a wide range of contexts,” Johnson notes, “from Albert Einstein’s explanation of Brownian motion that proved the existence of molecules, to Sergei Brin and Larry Page’s PageRank algorithm that gave rise to Google. In our case, we defined random walkers whose hops were drawn from a distribution centred at one and with standard deviation equal to the network’s trophic incoherence.” The researchers found that higher incoherence was associated with a higher probability of the walker returning to its origin as well as a higher prevalence of loops in the associated network.With this method, Johnson tells Phys.org, they were able to obtain expectations and probability distributions for several quantities of interest as a function of trophic coherence, which they termed the coherence ensemble. Moreover, they found that once the trophic coherence was taken into account, the numbers of cycles and related magnitudes measured in all the empirical networks they studied were very close to their theoretical expectations. “From this we were able to conclude that trophic coherence and properties such as looplessness” (which they loosely define as having few or no cycles) “were closely related.”It could, of course, be the case,” Johnson acknowledges, “that certain classes of real networks are coherent as a consequence of some process which suppressed cycles. For instance,” he illustrates, “if ecosystems with too many cycles tended to become unstable and collapse, then perhaps only loopless ones survived, and trophic coherence followed from that. However, when we generated networks in a computer so as to have no cycles, we found that this does not induce trophic coherence, while those generated to be sufficiently coherent are loopless.” The researchers therefore concluded that coherence-inducing mechanisms are most likely responsible for looplessness in nature.In addition to the examples of looplessness resulting from trophic coherence mentioned in their paper, Johnson discussed several classes of networks in which trophic levels are likely to be related to some kind of node function, as seems to occur with syntactic function in word adjacency graphs. “We’d expect that if we could obtain data on such systems, we might find that their trophic coherence or incoherence plays a role in their behavior, via its effects on looplessness or loopfulness, as the case may be. More broadly, we believe that classifying the nodes in such networks by trophic level might be useful, as is the case of ecosystems.” For example, he illustrates, power relations between people in various kinds of organizations might follow this pattern. “Imagine an army, a corporation, or a whole society, in which each person is a node and a directed edge (aka arrow) points from every individual to those to whom they report, or owe some kind of obedience. A person’s trophic level would give an indication of their hierarchical position, and perhaps the trophic coherence of the whole system might be related to the speed of information transmission or its robustness to revolts. This is something we’re currently thinking about.”The scientists are also hoping to study the meaning of trophic levels in neural networks. “We included only one example of these in our paper – the much-studied brain of the C. elegans worm – but we’re interested in effects on computational abilities, in which feedback loops can be very important. It’s curious that neural networks used for deep learning are perfectly coherent – so what might a bit of incoherence do?”While not discussed in this paper, Johnson and Phys.org discussed the question of whether the number of a system’s feedforward loops is affected by trophic coherence. “It’s very interesting you should ask that! As part of his doctoral work, Janis Klaise has been looking into this very question – and we have a paper submitted showing that this is indeed the case. It has been known for some time that if one studies the motif profiles of empirical networks – that is, the prevalence of each of the possible ways in which triplets of nodes can be connected – there are several broad families of networks with similar profiles.” There are two main groups of food webs, he illustrates, differing primarily in whether the feedforward loop is under- or over-represented, thereby corresponding to more or less trophically coherent food webs, respectively.

Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 114(22):5618-5623. (Phys.org)—Complexity – defined as having emergent properties or traits that are not a function of, and are therefore difficult or inherently impossible to predict from, the discrete components comprising the system – is a characteristic of complex systems at a wide range of scales (such as genes, neurons and other cells, brains, computers, language, and both natural and sociopolitical ecosystems) that comprise interconnected elements capable of self-modification via feedback loops. At the same time, there are networks (biological and otherwise) that have far fewer of these loops than might be expected – but while these low feedback loop networks are known to be display high stability, the mechanism for feedback suppression (which imparts that stability) has remained unidentified. Recently, however, scientists at University of Warwick and Imperial College London have shown that the level of feedback in complex systems is a function of trophic coherence – a property that reveals the distribution of nodes into high- and low-feedback network levels.
