  • Trump told Jordan’s king he would give him the West Bank, shocking Abdullah II, book says
    The unreported offer of the West Bank to Jordan’s king is among the startling new details about Trump’s chaotic presidency in the book “The Divider: Trump in the White House 2017-2021” by Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for the New York Times, and Susan Glasser, staff writer for The New Yorker. I will never get over that it’s now a documented fact that Trump wanted to model himself after Adolf Hitler and hardly anyone has reacted since the story came out. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/09/14/trump-book-jordan-abdullah/ https://twitter.com/EladNehorai/status/1570298332123377664/photo/1

    This site is designed to make summary-level data available from a recent analysis of cis-genetic associations for plasma proteome in a large (N~9,000) multi-ethnic dataset generated from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. Researchers can download model coefficients for genetically imputing proteins in European American (EA) and African American (AA) populations and hence conduct proteome-wide association studies (PWAS) using summary-statistics data from external genome-wide association studies. Further, researchers can visualize and download summary-statistics data on pQTL and subsequent fine mapping analyses for each of the two ethnic groups. The site is currently under construction and so please frequently check back for updates.
