    Hi Reddit, As the Michael Hooker Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the UNC School of Medicine, I study the causes of human diseases such as cystic fibrosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Every day, an average of 15 people are newly diagnosed with ALS. That’s more than 5,600 people per year. Annually, ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is responsible for two deaths per 100,000 people. Along with my colleagues, I recently completed some research on ALS that could lead to significant developments in how we treat the disease. In my lab, we approach research very differently than many other labs. We use integrated strategies to replicate molecular structural modeling. This way, when we analyze the structure and dynamics of biological molecules, they are at consistent time scales to actual biological systems. This is also how we approached our ALS research. Although there has been a significant amount ...

    mikejuk writes: The Pi Zero was supposed to be available from November 26, 2015. It is now the start of February and all of the stockists, including the Pi Swag Shop, are still showing out of stock. That's two whole months, and counting, of restricted supply which is more than an initial hiccup. Of course you would expect enough to be made available initially to meet the expected demand. The Pi sells something in the region of 200,000 per month so what do you think the initial run of the Pi Zero actually was? The answer is 20,000 units. Of which 10,000 were stuck to the cover of MagPi and "given away" leaving just 10,000 in the usual distribution channels. And yet Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, commented: "You'd think we'd be used to it by now, but we're always amazed by the level of interest in new Raspberry Pi products," Well yes, you really would think that they might be used to it by now and perhaps even prepared for it. At the time of writing the Pi Zero is st...

The watchdog confirmed that providers would no longer be able to charge for data based on discriminatory tariffs but instead that pricing must be "content agnostic." It added that fines of Rs. 50,000 – 50 Lakh would be enforced should the regulations be violated. ...

    Rei writes: After some consternation about the pacing of Falcon 9 upgrades, SpaceX has announced that it plans to launch again from Cape Canaveral with a target date of February 24th. While the primary mission will be to place the SES-9 communications satellite in orbit, this will also mark their fourth attempt to land the first stage on an autonomous drone ship, after their last launch touched down softly but fell over when one leg failed to latch. SpaceX is working to significantly accelerate the rate of production and launches — they are reportedly moving the factory from 6-8 cores produced per year to 18 at present, and expect to reach 30 by the end of the year. After the upcoming launch, they expect to launch one rocket every two to three weeks. ...

    An anonymous reader writes with Yahoo's report that the makers of Adblock Plus are "looking to reach out to advertisers and identify an 'acceptable' level and form of advertising on the net." That involves convincing advertisers to conform to the company's own guidelines for advertising, or an alternative path much disliked by some of the software's users — to pay the company to ignore ads that don't meet those guidelines. From the article: Big websites can pay a fee not to be blocked. And it is these proceeds that finance the Cologne-based company and its 49-strong workforce. While Google and Amazon have paid up, others refuse. Axel Springer, which publishers Germany's best-selling daily Bild, accuses [Adblock Plus maker] Eyeo of racketeering. "We believe Eyeo's business model is against the law," a spokesman for Springer told AFP. "Clearly, Eyeo's primary aim is to get its hands on a share of the advertising revenues." Ultimately, such practices posed a threat to the profe...

Still, he writes, There are hints of such from last year. A leaked patch for the 14 nanometer AMD Zeppelin (Family 17h, Model 00h) reveals support for up to 32 cores. Another blog says pretty much the same thing. We recently discussed an announced 4+8 core AMD chip, but nothing like this. ...

    A study reported on by Ars Technica indicates that video games, much ballyhooed (alleged) source of mental, physical and psycho-social ills for the kids who spent a lot of time playing them, don't seem to have had quite as big a negative effect on those kids as the moral panic of the past few decades would have you believe. Instead, There didn't seem to be an association between the number of games the children reported owning and an increase in risk for conduct disorder. When examining depression among shoot-em-up players, there was evidence for increased risk before the researchers controlled for all the confounding factors, but not afterwards. Of course, there's a lot of data to go around in the several studies referred to here, and the upshot seems to both less exciting and less simple than "Video games are good, not bad!" ...

    The Zika virus has spread rapidly across Latin America, transforming from a little-known, mild ailment to an international public health concern. The illness is transmitted through the Aedes aegypti mosquito and until recently was believed to only cause mild symptoms. There is now evidence linking Zika to a spike in cases of pregnant women giving birth to babies with microcephaly, a birth defect in which a baby is born with a smaller than normal head, and Guillain-Barre syndrome. The CDC expects the virus to continue to spread and has urged pregnant women to avoid the two dozen countries where the virus is present so far and to take extra precaution to avoid mosquito bites. -- By Emily Z.

    New Comic: Decrepitude

    Tycho: When Gabriel told me the story, it was at once completely silly and eminently sensible.  It reminded me a little of The Mancraft Saga, insofar as they both map cyberverse and regular ‘verse at a one to one ratio. Videogames are definitely simulations and not “real” in terms of being constructed out of the typical materials we surround ourselves with.  But the virtual worlds and the people that populate them still bear all our human metadata; our brains are ridiculously compatible with these places.  Maybe it’s not weird at all that they can do…...

    New Comic: Guardian, Definition 3

    Tycho: There is probably someone who likes Dick more than me, but I don’t know them.  Where I am typing this now, at home on my primary machine, I have no less than four Philip K. Dick books within reach - and this isn’t even where I keep my books. I’ve been trying to push Gabriel into this lifestyle for ages, they’re just very meaningful, formative materials, and as long as you don’t mind occasionally wondering if the toast you are eating is real toast you’ll probably be fine.  But I tried to get him into a book a long time ago which he should have…...

    New Comic: Speculative Diction

    Tycho: As the newest show, PAX South has such a cool energy.  And its still so young that people are always asking me if we think it’s gonna be back next year.  I don’t know a hundred percent of everything that happens, or is going to happen, but PAX South is a real show.  We made a logo, and everything!  I love coming down there, I love being handed huge bags of beef jerky, and I love getting radically different and profoundly contradictory barbecue advice. I also like being reminded, on occasion, that people actually like what we do.  I do it because I like…...

Even if I can’t parse somebody’s handle in an explicitly rude way, I always assume it’s super bad and wrong, I just don’t know exactly how.  I assume that most of the words in those dense bricks are different things it’s possible, though not entirely legal, for people to do to moms?

    A reborn Orange Crush might have sent Peyton Manning into retirement with a Super ending to his career.

    Bandai Namco and From Software have released the opening cinematic of Dark Souls 3. Be warned, though, as it obviously contains massive spoilers for both the story and, presumably, at least some of the bosses. They're very cool looking bosses, as you'd expect from a Souls game, but they're also huge spoilers to some and I'm sure people will get angry at me if I say much more. After Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 finally won me over last month after years of disliking them, I’m pretty excited for this one. The trailer shows and mentions some things that are very interesting for those familiar with the series’ lore, and I can’t wait to explore them in more detail! I’m also seeing quite a lot of Bloodborne influence in some of the visual designs, so seeing how far that goes will also be cool. Dark Souls 3 releases for PC, PS4 and Xbox One...

Accessories like shades and silly mustaches are a staple of Namco Bandai fighting games so it makes perfect sense. Maybe someone will get to wear Charizard's skin?

    After an "internal meeting," piracy group 3DM (the same group that couldn't crack Just Cause 3) has decided that they will not crack any single-player games "for a year," so that they can "look at the situation in a year's time to see if genuine sales have grown" -- but stopped short of saying what will happen if they do grow. A common argument of pirates is that "pirating games does not automatically mean a lost sale, because that person could end up buying it." Of course that can happen, but I'm not sure of the efficacy of this experiment -- after all, 3DM is just a small drop in the water when it comes to pirating groups. Plus, how are they measuring growth? Just in general "dollars spent" per year? I think they'd need more support to truly make this work, and that would be an interesting experiment. ...

    Ubisoft has intentionally kept the PC version of The Division "in check" with the console editions. While Division will be have a greater range of graphical settings on the former, the developer has also introduced some PC-like settings to consoles, too. "One good thing about The Division is we've always considered the PC as a separate platform," the developer said in a YouTube interview. "We do have to keep it in check with the consoles - it would be kind of unfair to push it so far away from them. But it's been good having a dedicated PC build for this game." "I'm really happy that we're pushing the PC build as much as we are; there's a lot more customised options than the console.” PC participants of The Division’s recent beta claimed the game was rife with cheaters. The Division is set to release on P...

    [Update: Well, Madden was wrong. Contrary to EA's simulation, the Denver Broncos prevailed in Super Bowl 50, winning over the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24 to 10. Also, it seems EA has removed the video. Maybe the folks over there are a tad embarrassed about their miscalculation.] The folks at EA Sports like to use Madden, perennially the most realistic football video game, to predict the outcome of the Super Bowl. It's an obvious, easy trick to use the hype for The Big Game to redirect some attention to the Madden brand. It also works perplexingly well, not unlike that World Cup-pickin' octopus named "Paul." In this year's matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, Madden 16 has Carolina winning by four courtesy of a last-minute touchdown. According to the simulation, the Panthers get out to a 17-point lead at half...

    Years ago, World War II shooters were everywhere. Then the bubble burst. Activision, EA, and all the pretenders trained their sights on more contemporary settings, quickling transitioning series like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and Battlefield away from their 1940s roots and into the 21st century. That exodus has created something of a vacuum, one Bulkhead Interactive, the developer behind Pneuma: Breath of Life, is eager to fill. Last Tuesday, the studio announced Battalion 1944, the sort of game that would have been ignored a decade ago, on Kickstarter with hopes of raising £100,000. But times have clearly changed. The crowdfunding effort su...

    Sony is really getting comfortable this generation with its remasters, and for a long while people have been expecting something Crash-related on PS4. Every year or so it comes back and says "we'd love to revive Crash" or something to that effect, and then select talking heads (no, not the ones of Psycho Killer fame) say "no not really." So why is Sony Middle East teasing Crash on their Twitter account with the slogan "Most Wanted: Where Are You Crash?" We don't know! While the publisher could just be honoring its once storied legacy yet again, there's no doubt that one day, Crash will rise out of the ashes just like Spyro did. Toys-to-life with Crash? I'd consider it. I mean, Activision still owns it after all. Remember when he repped D-Generation X, had a canceled cartoon, a kart racin...

    Forget about buying a ticket for one movie and then hopping from one theater to the next. Forget about buying a ticket and then slipping your friends in through the fire exit. If you really want to cheat the system and sneak your buddy into the movies then you need to take lesson from cartoons and go as one person.  That's exactly what two dudes did when one guy latched onto the other and they threw on a giant shirt for disguise. Personally, I would have opted for the trench coat as a nod to Rugrats, Ducktales, Adventure Time or any other cartoon, but regardless it worked!

    The tooth fairy definitely owes this kid a couple of extra bucks for inventiveness. Rather than just rely on his parents to pull his loose tooth or wait for it to come out while eating, this future dentist took action in a rather creative way. The kid strapped his tooth to a Hot Wheels car and let it rip.  It takes a couple of loops, but eventually that sucker is yanked out and victory is declared!

    You know those shitty, lowest common denominator, infinitely disposable "react" videos? Where teenagers and old people react to 90s videogames and dumb memes by sorta laughing a little and saying "huh neat"? Well, those videos are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to the future of internet-folk The Fine Bros. - to the degree that they're trying to copyright the word "React" and the entire concept of "people reacting to stuff." Here's their announcement video, detailing this FUN and EXCITING plan: Ironically, the internet has not "reacted" well. (GET IT???)

    This is the second in a series of blog posts about the ability to greatly accelerate software delivery pipelines - thus, also accelerating innovation — using the combination of Jenkins, Docker and continuous delivery practices.One of the most interesting things about the Docker phenomenon is how it helps facilitate the way development and operations teams work together by changing the abstraction level from an application binary to a container level. Jenkins has a similar impact on development and operations teams. Jenkins was originally created as a CI server — a server that builds, runs tests and reports results as source code or configuration changes. Today, however, it is very commonly used to orchestrate the entire software delivery process across an organization and between teams. The introduction of the Pipeline feature in Jenkins has made it simple to define and share the processes involved in a full CD pipeline. Thus, like Docker, Jenkins has r...

    I am excited to announce the general availability of Hazelcast 3.6. This release is the outcome of months of work by both the Hazelcast team and the Hazelcast community. The Hazelcast community has given precious support by sending pull requests as well as opening issues and feature requests. In this blog post, I’ll give an overview of the main new features introduced in 3.6.Open Sourcing Native ClientsThe biggest news around 3.6 is the decision to make the C++ and .NET clients open source. We recently released our Open Binary Client Protocol in order to allow community members to build their own clients. Java has always been open source, and changing C++ and .NET clients to open source allows them to be used as building blocks for new clients and to act as further examples....

    Uglier than a Windows backslash, odder than ===, more common than PHP, more unfortunate than CORS, more disappointing than Java generics, more inconsistent than XMLHttpRequest, more confusing than a C preprocessor, flakier than MongoDB, and more regrettable than UTF-16, the worst mistake in computer science was introduced in 1965:I call it my billion-dollar mistake… At that time, I was designing the first comprehensive type system for references in an object-oriented language. My goal was to ensure that all use of references should be absolutely safe, with checking performed automatically by the compiler. But I couldn’t resist the temptation to put in a null reference, simply because it was so easy to implement. This has led to innumerable errors, vulnerabilities, and system crashes, which have probably caused a billion dollars of pain and damage in the last forty years. – Tony Hoare, inventor of ALGOL W....

    What is a Proxy?Proxy is a design pattern. We create and use proxy objects when we want to add or modify some functionality of an already existing class. The proxy object is used instead of the original one. Usually, the proxy objects have the same methods as the original one and in Java proxy classes usually extend the original class. The proxy has a handle to the original object and can call the method on that.This way proxy classes can implement many things in a convenient way:...

    I have a multimodule Python package which has one file with class MyClass and few files with functions (one file can contain more than 1 function). I tried to get all functions in this package. Firstly, using the following: modules = [] for importer, module, ispkg in pkgutil.iter_modules(package.__path__): modules.extend(module) but I got only module names, not module objects. When I tried to get functions of these modules using inspect.getmembers(module, inspect.isfunction), I of course, got an empty collection. So, how can I got all module objects from the package for further getting functions? Does an easier way to get all functions from the multifile package exists? P.S. I need exactly function objects and not only their names....

    I have 2 similar PHP pages, one displays the UK £ symbol correctly, the other displays a black diamond with a ? in it. In order to diagnose the problem I cut the code down and they are now identical, but still display differently. How can that be???

What is happening here?...

    The pedagogical model of the integrated circuit goes something like this: take a silicone wafer, etch out a few wells, dope some of the silicon with phosphorous, mask some of the chip off, dope some more silicon with boron, and lay down some metal in between everything. That’s an extraordinarily basic model of how the modern semiconductor plant works, but it’s not terribly inaccurate. The conclusion anyone would make after learning this is that chips are inherently three-dimensional devices. But the layers are exceedingly small, and the overall thickness of the active layers of a chip are thinner than a …read more...

    [Michel] has a wood stove in his basement for extra heat in the winter. While this is a nice secondary heat source, he has creosote buildup in the chimney to worry about. [Michel] knows that by carefully monitoring the temperature of the gases in the chimney, he can hit the sweet spot where his fire burns hot enough to keep the creosote under control and cool enough that it doesn’t burn down the house. To that end, he built a wireless wood stove monitor. The first version he built involved an annoying 20 foot run between the basement and living …read more...

    We’re interested by a move from Thermaltake, a manufacturer of computer cases, fans, and power supplies. Thermaltake has released a computer case designed to be modded by those with a 3D printer. They released a set of models that fits the new case. These are all hosted on a service much like Thingiverse. So if you want a single SSD or a whole rack, print the model. Watercooling? There’s a model for that. In concept, it’s very cool. We’re not certain how to feel about this. Our initial impression was that if Thermaltake is going to launch a case around …read more...

    A lot of people got drones for Christmas this year (and many Hackaday readers already had one, anyway). A lot of these drones have cameras on them. The expensive ones beam back live video via RF. The cheaper ones just record to an SD card that you can download later. If you are NASA, of course, this just isn’t good enough. At the Langley Research Center in Virginia, they’ve been building the Greased Lightning (also known as the GL-10) which is a 10-engine tilt-prop unmanned aerial vehicle. The carbon fiber drone is impressive, sure, but what wows is the recent …read more...

The video (see below) shows the results (along with [Emil’s] little brother acting as a safety officer).

    So you’ve just taken apart a hard drive, and you’re looking at all the pieces on your desktop. You’re somehow compelled to use them all in different projects.

That’s what [Sergei Bezrukov] did, and it looks like a perfect el cheapo project. The build is fairly low-tech and entirely sufficient.
