Genius (11/13)



  1. the first episode was slow enough that I never continued. I'm hearing good things about the latest season though.
  2. I could probably find the exact thread somewhere in the SFN archives
  3. Not too many avenues of redress given the First Amendment (and rightly so). However, many actions - such as withholding potentially damaging stories - could be considered illegal contributions to the Trump campaign. I guessing there have been FCC violations as well - but I doubt the fines are commensurate with the impact and profit.
  4. Please see the above thread. By many accounts, science misinformation is firmly entrenched on twitter, which is where I, personally, get much of my science news. The odd part is that some of these lies seem more lazy than malicious. Why pretend that kinesin is endorphin... this will not gain you any social or political advantage. It's not clear that it will even result in more retweets.
  5. I interviewed for a post-doc position there. They are indeed many other academic institutions doing basic research.

    Yemen Civil War

    amazing development @Ten oz. Perhaps this leads to a showdown between executive and congress... or does Senate have to approve arms sales anyway?
  7. This is off topic to the OP, since your cited approach is engineered adaptive immunity. NK cells are part of the innate immune system and are activated by cytokines or interferons = no antibodies involved.
  8. For starters it looks like xylometazoline is a vasoconstrictor, which is the opposite MOA that you indicate in your post. Am not a doctor, but it sounds like a symptom relief type of drug and I find it odd that you've been using it for 6 months. https://www.drugbank.ca/drugs/DB06694
  9. Forget a million dollar prize... start breaking financial system encryption and claim trillions.
  10. They are considering another large tax increase on cigarettes in NYC, meanwhile over half of cigarettes are smuggled from out of state https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/04/19/nyc-moves-raise-cost-cigarettes-nations-highest/100672190/
  11. civilians of the world, unite!
  12. All is fair in the war against job-stealing refugees.
  13. The correct control would be non-musical sound, rather than no sound.
  14. By issuing a contempt of court ruling, at which point it would be up the the US Marshalls to enforce the court ruling. But my point is that Trump and the DHS is not ignoring the ruling of the Washington Judge, but using the Justice department to appeal the ruling, which is the proper channel.
