Rare disease clues found in cell’s recycling system — ScienceDaily

Scientists have demonstrated how an investigational drug works against a rare, fatal genetic disease, Niemann-Pick type C1 (NPC1). They found that a closely related compound will activate an enzyme, AMPK, triggering a cellular “recycling” system that helps reduce elevated cholesterol and other accumulated fats in the brains and livers of NPC1 patients, which are hallmarks associated with severe neurological problems. The research was led by scientists at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), part of the National Institutes…

How Technology is Removing Hurdles of Higher Education

The world of education has dramatically changed. While some of the points taught are still the same, how you access information, prepare papers, and conduct your research has drastically changed because we live in a technology-centered world now. It seems like just a few years ago all you needed was your textbook, notes from class, and a good set of encyclopedias. If you gave an elementary student a set of encyclopedias to do his or her work, they might look…

HTTPS has numerous benefits that are not available over unencrypted HTTP, including improved performance with HTTP/2, SEO benefits for search engines like Google and the reassuring lock icon in the address bar. So how do you add…

A container identity bootstrapping tool

Everybody has secrets. Software developers have many. Often these secrets—API tokens, TLS private keys, database passwords, SSH keys, and other sensitive data—are needed to make a service run properly and interact securely with other services. Today we’re sharing a tool that we built at Cloudflare to securely distribute secrets to our Dockerized production applications: PAL. PAL is available on Github: https://github.com/cloudflare/pal. Although PAL is not currently under active development, we have found it a useful tool and we think the…
