The struggles of America's forgotten working class | J.D. Vance Monday September 26th, 2016 03:22:05 PM (TED Conferences LLC)
J.D. Vance grew up in a small, poor city in the Rust Belt of southern Ohio, where he had a front-row seat to many of the social ills plaguing America: a heroin epidemic, failing schools, families torn apart by divorce and sometimes violence. In a searching talk that will echo throughout the country's working-class towns, the author details what the loss of the American Dream feels like and raises an important question that everyone from community leaders to policy makers needs to ask: How can we help kids from ...

Instead, she says, they should focus on providing the oldest idea of all: unconditional love.

In a couple of weeks, I will start working for Undo on their reversible debugger.

Jim Hall: Great first year at LAS GNOME! Sunday September 25th, 2016 09:26:00 PM (Jim Hall)
This was the first year of the Libre Application Summit, hosted by GNOME (aka "LAS GNOME"). Congratulations to the LAS GNOME team for a successful launch of this new conference! I hope to see more of them.In case you missed LAS GNOME, the conference was in Portland, Oregon. I thoroughly enjoyed this very walkable city. Portland is a great place for a conference venue. When I booked my hotel, I found lots of hotel options within easy walking distance to the LAS GNOME location. I walked every day, but you could ...

Jiri Eischmann: We’re looking for a GNOME developer Friday September 23rd, 2016 03:24:46 PM
We in the Red Hat desktop team are looking for a junior software developer who will work on GNOME. Particularly in printing and document viewing areas of the project. The location of the position is Brno, Czech Republic, where you’d join a truly international team of desktop developers. It’s a junior position, so candidates just off the university, or even still studying are welcome. We require solid English communication skills and experience with C (and ideally C++, too). But what is a huge plus is experience ...

Jiri Eischmann: LibreOffice Conference 2016 Friday September 23rd, 2016 03:24:46 PM
LibreOffice Conference 2016 is over and for us organizers it’s a time to reflect. It was the third big open source desktop conference we’ve managed to get to Brno (after GUADEC 2013 and Akademy 2014). 3 days of talks, 150 attendees from all over the world, 4 social events. The conference went pretty well from the organizational point of view. Feedback has been very positive so far. People liked the city, the venue (FIT BUT campus is really, really nice), the parties, and catering during the conference. ...

Triak Starfighter Build, Part 2 Saturday September 24th, 2016 03:15:22 PM KenMcConnell
The build continues, this time focusing on the engine intake areas. Lots of putty, and sanding occurred. Sometimes you go old school and just screw it together. Test fitting the engine nacelles and intakes to the fuselage. The inside area gets some detail attention. She even has a radiator! The engines glued on and some putty applied to even [...]

Triak Starfighter Build, Part 1 Friday September 23rd, 2016 08:59:12 PM KenMcConnell
            This design was originally named the Terror Diver and was first drawn by me in the late 1980’s. Below is the scrap of paper I doodled on that also included the Spieron starfighter. The above drawing was done by an artist on DeviantArt I can no longer recall his name. For this 1/32 scale design I [...]

K’nat Starfighter Build, Part 3 Thursday September 22nd, 2016 10:20:53 PM KenMcConnell
For the top deck detailing on the fighter I wanted a mixture of model parts and styrene. I ended up doing more styrene and less parts. Hopefully it looks good when I’m done. I know the model will be painted a matte black color, so texture will be important on this one. The canopy is frames [...]

K’nat Starfighter Build, Part 2 Thursday September 22nd, 2016 09:17:12 PM KenMcConnell
All the electronics are inside, tucked away and safe. Each LED gets a resister and the whole lot gets a slider switch that will be accessible behind hidden panels on the model’s bottom. The head lamps were installed in the nose and wired up through holes in the bulkhead. I tested all the lights and then glued the [...]

K’nat Starfighter Build, Part 1 Thursday September 22nd, 2016 08:37:09 PM KenMcConnell
The K’nat fighter is featured in an upcoming novella set after Starstrikers, Book 4 of the Star Saga. It was mentioned briefly in Starstrikers as being one of the fighters based on the Eclipse starship. The novella that features this starfighter is called K’nat Trap and my plan was to build one in 1/32 scale [...]

SS Weippe Build, Part 3 Tuesday September 20th, 2016 04:16:43 PM KenMcConnell
Primer on and now she’s looking like a proper starship. After primer you can usually spot the places that need more attention. The base coat of gray was a bit darker than the Sokol for contrast in age. I wanted the Weippe to be older and worn down a bit so weathering should reflect this. I used mostly [...]

SS Weippe Build, Part 2 Tuesday September 20th, 2016 04:04:40 PM KenMcConnell
The top deck of the head was scored for panel lines using the Tamiya panel scoring tool. I really like that tool. More bridge details are added. The side details went on pretty fast. Again, keeping the style as similar to the Sokol as possible to show the lineage. You can see the Sokol model in [...]

SS Weippe Build, Part 1 Tuesday September 20th, 2016 03:50:42 PM KenMcConnell
The SS Weippe is an old corvette class starship featured in my novel, Corvette. Corvette takes place about 30 years before Starforgers, Book 1 of the Star Saga. The design is similar to the SS Sokol but smaller. This ship is already close to fifty years old when the novel takes place and by the [...]

Scrambler Build, Part 2 Monday September 19th, 2016 09:10:45 PM KenMcConnell
Putty, sanding, primer and repeat. This model has become a lesson on how to putty a model. Or perhaps how not to. I’ve purchased and used just about every kind of modeling putty made. I much prefer the water based putties mostly because they don’t stink nearly as badly. The first attempt is splotchy and rough. Sanding [...]

Scrambler Build, Part 1 Monday September 19th, 2016 08:51:56 PM KenMcConnell
  Before Devon Ardel became a hot shot pilot for the Federation Alliance, she was a pretty good Stellar Ranger pilot. The fighter she flew for the Rangers was the Scrambler. When I initially started writing the Ranger short stories I drew this picture of the Scrambler. The design was a bit of a throwback to [...]

IntelliJ Sunday February 8th, 2015 02:15:01 PM shs96c

Child TB deaths set to fall as Kenya launches new drugs Tuesday September 27th, 2016 12:18:35 AM
By Katy Migiro NAIROBI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - More children are likely to survive tuberculosis, the leading infectious disease killer, after Kenya introduces child-friendly medicines on Oct. 1 - the first country in the world to do so. Some 155,000 children with TB are set to benefit across 18 countries that have already ordered the new medicines and are preparing to roll them out, starting with Kenya, according to the TB Alliance campaign group that oversaw their development. "Now, with the appropriate ...

Cancer patients may be overly optimistic about early drug trial participation Monday September 26th, 2016 09:58:06 PM
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - People with cancer may overestimate the possible benefits to them of participating in an early trial of a new medicine, even after talking with a doctor about what to expect, according to a new study from the U.K. So-called phase 1 trials of experimental treatments are intended to test the drug's safety. Just 4 percent to 20 percent of participants may see their cancer respond to the drug, the authors write in the journal Cancer.

Kite immunotherapy drug helps blood cancer patients in study Monday September 26th, 2016 09:40:37 PM
(Reuters) - Kite Pharma Inc on Monday said its experimental CAR T-cell therapy, which helps the immune system fight cancer, was highly effective in treating aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, although two deaths were related to the drug, according to interim data from a midstage trial. Shares of Kite, which had been halted before the release of the news, rose 11 percent when trading resumed. Some 76 percent of patients taking the drug, called KTE-C19, showed significant tumor shrinkage, including 47 percent who ...

More U.S. babies born addicted to opiates like heroin Monday September 26th, 2016 09:40:13 PM
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - The proportion of U.S. babies born suffering from withdrawal syndrome after exposure to heroin or prescription opiates in utero has more than doubled in less than a decade, a study suggests. Researchers focused on what’s known as neonatal abstinence syndrome, a condition akin to withdrawal that develops when babies essentially become addicted to drugs their mothers use during pregnancy. Nationally, the rate of neonatal abstinence syndrome involving mothers’ use of opiates ...

Walking is medicine? It helped high-risk seniors stay mobile Monday September 26th, 2016 09:08:26 PM
WASHINGTON (AP) — It's not too late to get moving: Simple physical activity — mostly walking — helped high-risk seniors stay mobile after disability-inducing ailments even if, at 70 and beyond, they'd long been couch potatoes.

Poor exercise habits may follow teens into adulthood Monday September 26th, 2016 08:08:31 PM
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Most American teenagers don’t get enough exercise, and they often stick with their sedentary ways as they enter adulthood, a U.S. study suggests. More than 9 in 10 adolescents fail to get the minimum 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous daily physical activity recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), researchers report in the journal Pediatrics. “Physical inactivity is one of the major predictors of childhood and adolescent obesity, the consequences ...

Mylan faces scrutiny over EpiPen profit data shown to Congress Monday September 26th, 2016 07:39:41 PM
Mylan has been widely criticized for sharply raising the price of EpiPens, which are carried by people with life-threatening allergies. Mylan, which acquired the product in 2007, has raised the list price for a pair of EpiPens to $600 from about $100 in 2008. Lawmakers are trying to determine whether Mylan made more money on EpiPen than warranted from state Medicaid programs by having it classified as a generic product, resulting in much smaller rebates to the government health plans.

Nestle executive Cantarell quits after 40 years, sparking reshuffle Monday September 26th, 2016 07:27:10 PM

Cantarell will be replaced in January by Marco Settembri, head of Nestle's water division, which will now be run by Maurizio Paternello, who moves from Nestle Russia and Eurasia, the company said in a statement.

Clovis short sellers undaunted as stock price surges Monday September 26th, 2016 07:05:14 PM
By Lewis Krauskopf NEW YORK (Reuters) - Clovis Oncology Inc's share price has doubled in the past month, fueled by positive developments for the company's experimental cancer drug and takeover speculation. The biotech company said late last month its experimental ovarian cancer treatment would be reviewed on a priority basis, with U.S. regulators expected to rule on the drug, rucaparib, by Feb 23. Shares of Clovis, which has climbed to a market value of about $1.4 billion, rose steadily in the past month, from ...
