That's interesting.  There is also evidence that some cancers need glucose to grow.  A lot of new-ish research has been looking into glucose restriction as a tool to fight cancer.  Glucose neogenesis is the process of making glucose from protein sources -- if a body has too much protein then it will synthesize glucose to use as fuel and in turn the cancer cells will use it to multiply.  So, this looks like there is potential for protein restriction to be beneficial to cancer patients for multiple reasons.

67-68 are still the best looking years for the Mustang IMO.

To bad we can't eat the European Starlings.

Edit: apparently you can.

I sold cars right out of high school.  I worked at a local Food dealership and sold both new and used vehicles.  I made pretty good money for an 18 year old kid but I had to quit after a while because the lack of morality in the process was starting to get to me.

Four square must go way back, because it was in full force back then.

I just don't understand how people could sign up to be chained to an anchor like that.

>That’s not keyword relevance to search terms you’re looking at. It’s relevance to what the most users are expecting to see.

That's an interesting observation...  Seems to me that “semantically rich” content needs to be yet another layer in the SEO checklist, adding to keyword complexity.  Man, I miss the days when mad-lib style kw density was enough.

>refueling time of approximately five minutes

That's the big advantage of fuel cells vs batteries.  I've seen a few of these on the road, very futuristic looking.

This is really interesting stuff.

Quote
The basic process converts the strings of ones and zeroes in digital data into the four basic building blocks of DNA sequences—adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. It employs synthetic DNA molecules created in a lab, not living DNA.

.....

“With proof-of-concept achieved for DNA as a digital data storage media, we are working to drive down the cost of synthesizing DNA to enable its potential as a widely-available commercial solution for the growing body of precious data in digital format, such as archival data, financial, and health record backups, and all long-term data retention where current media is not practical,” says Emily M. Leproust, CEO of Twist Bioscience. “MemoriesInDNA is a fabulous project to showcase the technological, scientific and cultural importance of DNA worldwide and we look forward to our role in this historic event.”


I'd like the encoding/decoding process explained a bit more.   It would be amazing DNA storage could be done in something a small and ubiquitous as a hard drive someday.

I'm still dealing with this one too... My dad is stable, and back to the habits that got him into the mess he's in.

Water Cooler / Re: Vertigo?

This has been an exercise in frustration so far.  The doctors have been passively dismissive, my mother is not exactly proactive.  She seems to have tinnitus (ringing in the ears), vertigo and hearing loss.  If you pump those symptoms into Google the top result is something called Meniere's disease.   I've been having to push her to advocate for herself.
