President Trump is historically unpopular even in Arkansas. My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president waning popularity isn limited to coastal cities and states.

Seifeldein, who was elected to council on Nov. 6, 2018, is a litigation attorney by trade, with experience working as a court appointed attorney for clients who could not afford legal services, and the first Sudanese immigrant to serve on City Council.The decision to run for mayor was the result of his accumulated experience both on council and in the courtroom, Seifeldein said.”I think with my experience on council, with my experience as an attorney and being an objective, vocal person on the council who’s been able to move the needle, I think I’m the leader Alexandria will get behind this election,” Seifeldein said.According to Seifeldein, his campaign will focus on many of the issues that have become flashpoints for conversation in the community, including the city’s stormwater infrastructure. Residents have experienced intense, repeated flooding over the last year and are looking to the city to address issues with its aging stormwater infrastructure.”We need a robust, aggressive plan to get the stormwater system fixed, and I think I’ve shown that pushing that in the most aggressive manner [is important] because it does deal with quality of life and safety,” Seifeldein said.Seifeldein also aims to push the city’s environmental future forward through more stringent green building policies, ensure Alexandria City Public Schools have funding for before and after school programming and support local businesses, especially as they continue to suffer the impacts of the COVID 19 pandemic.”They are the backbone of our economy,” Seifeldein said.

We obtained 174 transgenic lines with tissue specific eGFP expression in non haematopoietic and haematopoietic tissues. We identified two lines with marker gene expression in haematopoietic cells. One of the transgenic lines, I 551:eGFP, showed reporter gene expression in primitive red blood cells and in endothelial cells in the ventral wall of the DA at 25 hours post fertilization (hpf).
