Environmental Protection Agency EPAas part of its Science to Achieve Results STAR program, is seeking regular and early career applications proposing innovative research on the prediction, prevention, control and mitigation of freshwater Harmful Algal Blooms HABs as well as the drivers, life cycle patterns, and fate of and effects from less-common, less-studied, and emerging freshwater HAB species and toxins.
This solicitation provides the opportunity for the submission of applications for projects that may involve human subjects research.
Variety reported upon the awards, posting the winners' names online as they were announced. Unlike most awards shows, which typically close the evening with the announcement of Best Picture or Best Movie, the BET Awards announced Black Panther's win before Boseman's.

Introduction Harmful algal blooms HABs and associated hypoxia events have devastating consequences for ecosystems, communities and the health of humans, pets, livestock, and wildlife NSTC, ; U.
Recent large scale HAB events in lakes and reservoirs across the country, as well as in large river systems e. HABs are defined here as the excessive growth of various species of phytoplankton, protists, cyanobacteria, and macro and benthic algae whose proliferation negatively impacts water quality, aquatic ecosystem stability, and animal and human health.
These harmful blooms may consist of toxic or nontoxic species, though both may have negative impacts on aquatic ecosystems and drinking water sources.
HAB toxins may accumulate in the environment and throughout the food web and in drinking water, severely affecting the health of secondary and tertiary consumers.
Humans can be exposed to HAB toxins through drinking water consumption, recreational activities and consuming contaminated fauna Zurawell et al. Exposure to these toxins through these various pathways may cause symptoms such as gastrointestinal distress, kidney and liver toxicity, skin rashes, respiratory distress, muscle and joint pain and neurological symptoms Hudnell, ; NSTC, While anthropogenically-stimulated high biomass bloom events may not necessarily produce toxins, they may cause hypoxia or anoxia, alter food webs and stimulate pathogenic bacterial growth that disrupts ecosystem balance and function Wells et al.
Modifications extended the scope of the legislation to include freshwater HABs and hypoxia and acknowledged the need for further coordinated action across the Federal sector. While HABs and hypoxia occur in marine, estuarine, and freshwater ecosystems, the focus of this RFA will be on applications proposing innovative research on the prediction, prevention, control and mitigation of freshwater Harmful Algal Blooms HABs as well as the drivers, life cycle patterns, and fate of and effects from less-common, less-studied, and emerging freshwater HAB species and toxins.
Specifically, the RFA seeks applications on non-agriculture freshwaters that are important to aquatic ecosystems, drinking water, and recreational activity. Research related to retention ponds, detention ponds and stormwater control are not of interest, or responsive, under this RFA.
In addition to regular awards, this solicitation includes the opportunity for early career awards. The purpose of the early career award is to fund research projects smaller in scope and budget by early career PIs. EPA recognizes that it is important to engage all available minds to address the environmental challenges the nation faces.
At the same time, EPA seeks to expand the environmental conversation by including members of communities which may have not previously participated in such dialogues to participate in EPA programs.
For purposes of this solicitation, the following are considered MSIs: There is no list of HSIs.
Background The occurrence of HABs is increasingly common in inland freshwater ecosystems.The Dollar Baby (or Dollar Deal) is an arrangement where best-selling author Stephen King grants permission to students and aspiring filmmakers or theatre producers to adapt one of his short stories for $1.
The term is used to refer to the film or play itself, or the maker (for example, "The Sun Dog" was made as a Dollar Baby, or writer/director Frank Darabont was a Dollar Baby).
EPA is seeking regular and early career applications proposing innovative research on the prediction, prevention, control and mitigation of freshwater HABs as well as the drivers, life cycle patterns, and fate of and effects from from less-common, less.
