• The First Repeat Covid-19 Infection Case Isn’t All Bad News

    “It is unlikely that herd immunity can eliminate SARS-CoV-2,” he and his coauthors wrote in the report. “Although it is possible that subsequent infections may be milder than the first infection, as for this patient.”

    Throughout the pandemic, doctors and researchers around the world have documented a handful of presumed Covid-19 reinfections. In the first case, a woman in Japan fully recovered before returning to the hospital three weeks later with a new round of symptoms. In other instances—in China, France and the US—patients went up to six weeks between negative tests and a new positive one. But those reports, which lacked systematic genetic analysis, were largely believed to be the result of flawed testing or unusually long-lived infections flaring up again. Some recovered patients can harbor the virus’s genetic material inside their nose and throats for months, long after their symptoms have subsided. That can lead

  • The Convergence Of Human & Animal Coaching And Know-how Conference

    Biotechnology in its easiest sense would imply using the organic programs to develop technologies useful to man which in turn means process development and manufacture of helpful merchandise using organic programs. There are two paths into this program, so college students can both start at Holland School or UPEI, and find yourself with the same articulated degree. The technical lab-primarily based content material is roofed at Holland School within the Bioscience Expertise diploma program, both during the first two years of the diploma (for students who start at Holland School; Path 1) or in year 3 (for college students who begin at UPEI; Path 2). Determination-making on key features of digital life is mechanically ceded to code-driven, “black field” instruments. Individuals lack enter and do not be taught the context about how the instruments work. They sacrifice independence, privateness and power over selection; they don’t have any management over these …

  • Elon Musk promises demo of a working Neuralink device on Friday

    Elon Musk has said that his secretive neurotech firm Neuralink will demonstrate a working “device,” presumably a brain-machine interface, at 6PM ET on Friday. Musk has spoken repeatedly about his belief that BMI devices are needed to help humans keep up with AI by supplementing our brainpower, but right now, his goal is much simpler: to create an implantable device that lets people control phones or computers with their mind.

    Musk initially announced the August 28th “progress update” back in July, and has now offered more details on what will be shown. He says the update will include the unveiling of a second-generation robot designed to attach the company’s technology to the brain, and a demo of neurons “firing in real-time,” though it’s not clear exactly what is meant by this.

    Even compared to Musk’s other ventures like Tesla and SpaceX, Neuralink is ambitious. The

  • Stop what you’re doing right now and look at pictures of these adorable corgi siblings

    The coronavirus has been such a downer in our everyday lives.

    Not only has it been killing hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, it has forever changed the way we’ll be living our lives for the foreseeable future. We’re living the ‘new normal’, as they say.

    This also means we’ll be spending more time indoors than before. And with more time spent indoors, the more often we’ll look to the internet for some sense of joy, positivity, and happiness.

    Well, if that’s what you’re currently looking for, you’ve come to the right place.

    Introducing: Cooper and Baby, a pair of corgi siblings in Myanmar.

    Cooper and Baby are two Pembroke Welsh corgis who haven’t just been stealing the attention of starry-eyed social media users in Myanmar and across the internet, they’ve been stealing hearts.

    Perhaps they represent the right dose of cuteness and joy
