The end of the Victoria’s Secret Angels.
Link. A cultural artifact out of time. I suspect it will be back eventually.
mRNA 12-17: “70 myocarditis cases, but would prevent … 215 hospitalizations”
Link. To me that is not a great therapeutic index. Curious to see if there will be full approval.
“Germany’s vaccine commission recommended in April that anyone under 60 who had received a first shot of AstraZeneca should follow it up with either Pfizer or Moderna.”
Link. Our guys got J&J, I’d like a mRNA for them.
“With 2.7 percent of the world’s population, Brazil has suffered 13 percent of the Covid-19 fatalities”

M1 Airs are prone to Panics (spontaneous restart with full data loss).
Link. It’s not just our machine – which we named “Crashy”! (To be fair things are much better since last macOS update.) I wonder if it’s a hardware issue.

Link. The history of coronavirus pandemics.
“Telefónica handled a 45 percent jump in data through its network with no increase in energy use. Cogent’s electricity use fell 21 percent even as data traffic increased 38 percent.”
Link. We do more computing, but we are even more efficient. Bitcoin remains a concern.
Breathalyzer for COVID: “breath samples from people with Covid-19 had higher levels of aldehydes”
Link. I’d be surprised if these succeed.
Economics: On police chases and library fines.
Link. Technology can reduce the externalities.
CIA “… reviewed the test flights of the U-2 reconnaissance planes and then A-12 aircraft (the predecessor of the iconic SR-71 Blackbird) in the 1960s and found that roughly half of U.F.O. sightings were attributable to those top-secret programs,”
Link. Air Force invented “natural phenomena” to cover up.
Prostate cancer Rx: “combines a compound that targets a protein on the surface of prostate cancer cells, called prostate-specific membrane antigen, or P.S.M.A., with a radioactive particle that attacks the cells”
Link. Median 4 extra months of life, but these patients were at the very end.
“44 percent of people ages 20 to 29 losing money to fraud, more than double the 20 percent of people ages 70 to 79.”
Link. Dementia mostly bites after 85, but the 44% is higher than I’d have guessed. Different scams for young.
