01) Algorithms Identify People with Suicidal Thoughts

“Mention strong words such as “death” or “praise” to someone who has suicidal thoughts and chances are the neurons in their brains activate in a totally different pattern than those of a non-suicidal person. That’s what researchers at University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University discovered, and trained algorithms to distinguish, using data from fMRI brain scans.

The scientists published the findings of their small-scale study Monday in the journal Nature Human Behaviour. They hope to study a larger group of people and use the data to develop simple tests that doctors can use to more readily identify people at risk of suicide.”

01) Update: CRISPR

02) Direct Download [MP3]

“It’s been almost two years since we learned about CRISPR, a ninja-assassin-meets-DNA-editing-tool that has been billed as one of the most powerful, and potentially controversial, technologies ever discovered by scientists. In this episode, we catch up on what’s been happening (it’s a lot), and learn about CRISPR’s potential to not only change human evolution, but every organism on the entire planet.

Out drinking with a few biologists, Jad finds out about something called CRISPR. No, it’s not a robot or the latest dating app, it’s a method for genetic manipulation that is rewriting the way we change DNA. Scientists say they’ll someday be able to use CRISPR to fight cancer and maybe even bring animals back from the dead. Or, pretty much do whatever you want. Jad and Robert delve into how CRISPR does what it does, and consider whether we should be worried about a future full of flying pigs, or the simple fact that scientists have now used CRISPR to tweak the genes of human embryos.”

01) Acne Home Remedies


Another tip, for the teen or oily skinned adult in your life…

Buy a bag of cotton balls, and a bottle of generic, knock off “Listerine” mouthwash [because there’s no sense in paying more for a name, when active ingredients are the same]…

Wash the effected area daily.

The antiseptic will cut the skin oil, kill the bacteria and leave the skin area clean.

This is a fairly cheap way of dealing with acne.

…It is likely to solve the problem, in most cases.
