Touching story of scientists and parents working together to advance clinical research into a rare disease. Also, an example of how approval bodies need to more strongly differentiate approval criteria and standards according to the type of disease.

Ouch, that sounds far too familiar... but I guess he is also too right! (new apps, new programs, some tinkering here, some tinkering there, oops, 3am...)

As much as I like Google: aren't they shamelessly copying Microsoft here? Or is this just "convergent evolution" (20 years or so later than Microsoft)? Sumif? Nested functions? Colored tabs? Wow...

I guess they do. But then they all just are copying good old book keeping practices. Heard an interesting podcast the other day on how the first spread sheet program (or are they called apps these days ;) was developed. Madness if you think people used to do it by hand.

Anyway,excel is the reason to use Microsoft office. It still is so far ahead of the other solutions out there. If only formulas were easily transferable from one language version to the other ;)

The first human-to-human, brain-to-brain noninvasive interface has been created by researchers at the University of Washington. The system allows one researcher to remotely control the hand of another researcher, across the internet, merely by thinking about moving his hand. The researchers are already looking at a two-way system, to allow for a more

Worth reading. Although they don't mention citations; if something is being cited hundreds of times, it rarely (Jan-Hendrik Schön...) will be totally invalid... Anyway, the nice thing about science is that it produces tools and applications that WORK (in the long run) - if they don't, the underlying science will quickly be discredited. Science itself being evolutionary, there is bound to be the occasional error with the trial.... I guess that's why the article came out in the Economist, not Nature... Cheers, BK
