Trump unveils new Air Force One design plans

US President Donald Trump has revealed the renderings of the redesign of the presidential aircraft fleet, known as Air Force One.


The new design, which Mr Trump showed in an ABC interview, trades in the iconic baby blue and white exterior for more patriotic colours.


"There's your new Air Force One," he said, holding up the drawings of the red, white and blue planes.


The revamp would be the first since President John F Kennedy was in office.


Critics note a similarity between Mr Trump's private jet and the new aircraft design, which Mr Trump first announced last year.

Research team finds DNA 'switch’ to alter biological clock
研究小组发现 DNA 开关可以改变生物钟

A research team has discovered a “switch” that may someday be used to shift a person's circadian cycle, or internal clock, which determines behavioral rhythms such as sleep patterns.


A research team including members of Kyoto University announced the finding on June 12. The study result was published the same day in the British scientific journal Nature Communications.

包括京都大学成员在内的一个研究小组在6月12日宣布了这一发现。 研究结果发表在同一天的英国科学杂志《自然通讯》上。

The team said that it discovered for the first time that DNA arrangement plays a role as a switch to controlling a mice's internal clock. It is believed that humans also have the same mechanism.

研究小组表示,他们首次发现 DNA 排列在控制老鼠体内生物钟方面发挥着重要作用。 人们相信人类也有同样的机制。

“This is a vital step to understanding the mechanism of the biological clock,” said Masao Doi, a professor of Kyoto University specializing in chronobiology.

"这是理解生物钟机制的重要一步,"京都大学专门研究时间生物学的教授 Masao Doi 说。

The finding could be a clue to unlocking the mechanism of a morning person and a night person or treating sleep disorders, the study said.
