25 Days of Cats is exactly what it sounds like: 25 days of coverage dedicated to the pop culture phenomenon that is Cats. 25 Days of Cats is exactly what it sounds like: 25 days of coverage dedicated to the pop culture phenomenon that is Cats. I have been thinking a lot about Cats this month. (If you’re still with us after 25 days of nonstop coverage, thank you. I love you. My own mother stopped reading around day eight, and I am certain my girlfriend has not clicked a single story.) I saw the movie twice last week, and since then I have not known peace. It’s not the CGI fur. It’s not the fact that Idris Elba is the only cat with abs. It’s not that Judi Dench described her gender-bent Deuteronomy as trans. It’s not even the memory of Jason Derulo licking milk out of a bowl, scandalizing as it might have been, that is keeping me up at night. No, I am being haunted by a bowl of peas. It pops up in a scene in which a cat named Victoria and the infamous looting duo of Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer are trashing a dining room. The cats are bopping around the place, eating the family’s roast and breaking the dishes. (As an aside: What time is it? The dinner table is fully set and laden ...

Derek Lowe’s commentary on drug discovery and the pharma industry. An editorially independent blog from the

Derek Lowe’s commentary on drug discovery and the pharma industry. An editorially independent blog from the publishers of Science Translational Medicine. All content is Derek’s own, and he does not in any way speak for his employer. This is a solid article by Jeffrey Flier (open-access in the Journal of Clinical Investigation) on the roles of academia and industry in drug discovery. Which is a topic that refuses to go away. I am prepared to swear that before starting this blog I had no idea of how many people are convinced that the drug industry does little or no research, and that academic labs discover all the drugs. I will gladly send anyone unfamiliar with the real situation to this new article, because I think it does an excellent job of laying out just who does what in this business. Short answer: it’s a team effort, of course, and we all do different (and valuable) things. As Flier puts it, “Most fundamental biologic insights have resulted from work by academic scientists. . .“, but the view that all industry does is monetize academic discoveries “reflects a limited understanding of the work carried out by the pharmaceutical and biotech industries“. I could not agre...

In a forested patch of Garrison, N.Y., on the Hudson River, a giant robotic arm looms

In a forested patch of Garrison, N.Y., on the Hudson River, a giant robotic arm looms over a platform. Later this month, the platform will start to rotate while the arm pumps out a gooey concoction of basalt and biopolymers. Round it will go, receiving layer upon layer, until the arm, like a demonic pastry chef, has extruded an entire egg-shaped house. This 24-foot-high, 500-square-foot, two-story construction will have a sleeping pod, a bathroom with a shower, a study area and other amenities you might expect from a cool short-term rental. In fact, it will be a cool short-term rental, as well as a demonstration of the future of home building. The project, called TERA, is one of the latest experiments in 3D-printed houses. Innovators in this arena are seeking to reduce the expense, environmental impact and hazards of construction methods that have remained fundamentally unchanged for more than a thousand years. They are adapting a now-commonplace manufacturing technique in which a computer-controlled dispenser spews a malleable material that hardens into the shape of a pipe fitting, a chair or an internal organ — or, one day, a whole inhabitable building, with its myriad compone...

Apple Pro Display XDR is Apple’s insane new 6K monitor, starts at $5,000

The 6K resolution HDR monitor, designed to go with the new Mac Pro computer, is the first for the company since 2016. Apple is back in the computer monitor business. Today at WWDC 2019 the company announced a new monitor targeted toward pro users — the same folks who might want to buy the powerful new Mac Pro computer. Called the Pro Display XDR, it starts at $5,000, a fitting companion for the $6,000 starting price of the Mac Pro. And yes, there’s an optional stand for another grand. All three will be available in fall 2019. Apple likened the new display to professional reference monitors in the $40,000 price range, with brightness so “extreme” it had to replace the “H” with an “X” in the product name. Here are the top-level specs. The monitor’s chief feature is high-dynamic range, aka HDR. Doing HDR correctly requires a lot of horsepower to illuminate the screen, and the XDR monitor can get exceedingly bright — and stay that way. Apple says an advanced cooling system can maintain its 1,000 nits brightness “indefinitely.”  The monitor has a full-array backlight with 576 zones of full array local dimming &#...

Tesla Pickup Arrives in November, Still Sounds Insane

No one really expected electric pickup trucks to take off as a concept, save for the people developing them. While EVs still need to improve their maximum range to truly surpass combustion-reliant vehicles, modern examples perform much better than their predecessors. But battery size and vehicle weight remain important issues for the segment, making the idea of an electric work vehicle seem about as useful as an edible diaper. Then the concepts started arriving, sucking far less than most of us expected. There were loads of new ideas, like interesting storage solutions and auxiliary power ports for tools — all stemming from electrification. What’s more is that the vehicle itself seems like it could benefit from the instant torque and lower center of gravity furnished by electric powertrains. Battery packs can also be made larger (improving range), as pickups have more areas to stash cells without intruding into the passenger compartment. Maybe this wasn’t a dumb idea after all. Ford and General Motors have both confirmed the development of electric pickups, with the former currently running prototypes. Meanwhile, Rivian and Bollinger have already shown off their designs. EV ...

Alexa’s Cyber Monday deals featured Amazon’s own brands ahead of others

Cyber Monday was the biggest shopping day in Amazon’s history. Turns out it was also a day for Amazon to promote its own brands over all others. On Monday, asking an Amazon Echo for the “best Cyber Monday deals” returned five straight responses from smart assistant Alexa that promoted products owned by Amazon: Amazon acquired Blink, a maker of security cameras, in 2017; it purchased Ring, the maker of video doorbells, in 2018. An Amazon spokesperson told Recode that after those first five deals, Amazon did promote items made by other companies, and that Alexa-enabled non-Echo devices returned deals in their first five responses that included non-Amazon-owned items. But the initial Alexa responses are just another sign of Amazon’s aggressiveness in promoting its own brands, whether they are gadgets like the Echo family of smart speaker products and Ring doorbells or apparel lines like Goodthreads. Amazon’s Black Friday deals also predominately featured Amazon’s own brands ahead of others, according to an analysis by Quartz. The holiday promotions come at a time when politicians, regulators, and even Amazon’s own sellers are increasingly scrutinizing whether the e-commerce giant f...

Whether you use it for parking your car, as a workshop, a storage hub, or all

Whether you use it for parking your car, as a workshop, a storage hub, or all of the above, you need good lighting in your garage. Yet garages tend to be poorly lit, which makes them difficult to navigate, causes eye strain during DIY projects, and leaves you vulnerable to falls and injuries. Ahead, the secret formula to improving your garage lighting. Follow these 10 smart measures to better illuminate your garage, boosting the safety, visibility, efficiency, and even the beauty of the space. Artificial lighting falls into one of three categories—ambient, task, and accent—and ideally your garage should have all forms. Because the garage tends to be a multi-use space, it’s best to layer illumination so you’ll have the right light for parking, handiwork, storage, and display. Keep these categories in mind for selecting and positioning all garage lighting fixtures. The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Lighting Handbook recommends 50 lumens (a measure of light output) per square foot in residential garages and 300 lumens per square foot in workshop areas. A good rule of thumb is to aim for 50 lumens per square foot for ambient lighting, 300 lumens per square foot in areas tha...
