MRI device could bridge neuro-technologies for medical diagnostics, increase safety

Researchers from Purdue’s College of Engineering are developing a device that when placed into existing MRI machines could allow medical professionals to perform concurrent medical imaging and recording simultaneously. The technology would allow a more effective and safe way to monitor patients for diagnostic purposes.

Ninth Circuit Rules on National Security Letter Gag Orders

As we’ve previously discussed on this blog, Cloudflare has been challenging for years the constitutionality of the FBI’s use of national security letters (NSLs) to demand user data on a confidential basis. On Monday morning, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals released the latest decision in our lawsuit, and endorsed the use of gag orders that severely restrict a company’s disclosures related to NSLs.

Testosterone prescribing in VA varies by provider’s age, experience, specialty and region — ScienceDaily

Providers in the Veterans Health Administration (VA) system vary in their testosterone prescribing practices, according to a study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. This is the first study to examine provider and site predictors of testosterone prescribing in the VA. There has been a large increase in testosterone prescribing in the United States over the past decade, and prescriptions increased substantially between 2009 and 2012. Some testosterone prescriptions have been made without appropriate baseline…

Making lab equipment on the cheap

However, many experiments can be performed with good results using self-assembled setups involving 3-D printed components and self-programmed electronics. In a study publishing July 18 in the open access journal PLOS Biology, André Maia Chagas and Tom Baden from…

Building Mixed-Language iOS Project with Buck – Airbnb Engineering & Data Science – Medium

Flag -import-underlying-module Does Not Work The-import-underlying-module build flag causes implicit imports of Objective-C files into Swift, within the same module. This flag unfortunately doesn’t work with Buck. When Xcode generates frameworks, it generates module.modulemap and .hmap header map files to indicate header locations. The swift tool later uses these files to import Objective-C headers. However, since Buck doesn’t generate independent frameworks, it doesn’t generate these files. Thus, the -import-underlying-module flag doesn’t work in the swift tool. This means that we have to…

Playing Games With Higher Generation Particles

All of the normal matter that makes up you and me is comprised of ordinary boring atoms – neutrons, protons and electrons in various combinations. It would be nice if that were the be-all-and-end-all of things. Alas, our matter, you and me type matter, is just the First Generation of all things that matter. There’s also a Second and indeed a Third Generation of matter which nobody can explain the existence or relevance of from first principles. However, since these…

Team develops fast, cheap method to make supercapacitor electrodes for electric cars, high-powered lasers

Slice from x-ray computed tomography image of a supercapacitor coin cell assembled with the electrode materials. The thin layers — just below the coin cell lid — are layers of electrode materials and a separator. Credit: William Kuykendall Supercapacitors are an aptly named type of device that can store and deliver energy faster than conventional batteries. They are in high demand for applications including electric cars, wireless telecommunications and high-powered lasers. But to realize these applications, supercapacitors need better electrodes,…

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…
