01) Nano-bot can probe inside human cells

“Researchers have built a set of magnetic ‘tweezers’ that can position a nano-scale bead inside a human cell with unprecedented precision. The nano-bot has already been used to study the properties of cancer cells, and could lead to enhanced diagnosis and treatment.

University of Toronto Engineering researchers have built a set of magnetic ‘tweezers’ that can position a nano-scale bead inside a human cell in three dimensions with unprecedented precision. The nano-bot has already been used to study the properties of cancer cells, and could point the way toward enhanced diagnosis and treatment.

Professor Yu Sun and his team have been building robots that can manipulate individual cells for two decades. Their creations have the ability to manipulate and measure single cells — useful in procedures such as in vitro fertilization and personalized medicine. Their latest study, published today in Science Robotics, takes the technology one step further.”

01) UK “Predator Exposure” gets plenty of exposure after their arrest

02) HUNTER HUNTED Paedophile hunter who starred in BBC documentary arrested by gun cops ‘over vigilante raid’

“Officers swooped on Phill Hoban, 43, and other members of paedo hunters, Predator Exposure

A PAEDOPHILE hunter who appeared on a BBC documentary spoke of his fury yesterday after gun cops arrested him in a dawn raid.

Officers swooped on Phill Hoban, 43, and other members of Predator Exposure over claims of false imprisonment, assault and public order offences.

It is alleged they acted unlawfully when they detained two suspected paedos after separate online stings in August and January.

Armed police dragged members of the Leeds-based group from their homes before quizzing them for six hours on Monday.”

A tad bit dated…but only by a month.

Up to 3,000 Isis children living in ‘extremely dire conditions’…

01) Up to 3,000 Isis children living in ‘extremely dire conditions’

“As many as 3,000 children born into Islamic State families are being housed in camps in north-east Syria, Unicef estimates, with many younger than six years old and living in “extremely dire conditions”.

Unicef’s regional director for the Middle East, Geert Cappelaere, said many of the children in Syria were unwanted in the camp, adding to their vulnerability. There has so far been little interest from third party countries to offer resettlement.

“We estimate that close to 3,000 children of foreign nationality are living in extremely dire conditions,” he said. “There are many more children of Syrian and Iraqi parents, unfortunately with the same Isis label, many of them younger than six years old. These are children, not terrorists. These are children entitled to a childhood, deserving a fair chance in life.”

The results of religious extremism…

…This is among the saddest testimonies, of how badly off the rails things can get.

Those poor kids.

02) About calibre

“calibre is a powerful and easy to use e-book manager. Users say it’s outstanding and a must-have. It’ll allow you to do nearly everything and it takes things a step beyond normal e-book software. It’s also completely free and open source and great for both casual users and computer experts.”

I finally just got the most recent version of Calibre installed on this PC…

…I’ll be totally up front…It’s been years since I used this software…and that was a much earlier version…It did work well, for transferring e-books into different file formats [including PDF]…but, I’ve not tried much of anything with this latest version.

I’m out of the loop…so, I cannot offer any real advice on using this software…I still wanted to share the link.
