Gene editing to be banned in sports by 2018

The World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) recently declared their intention to ban gene editing in professional sports -- although how they'll to detect such edits is still in question.

Perhaps WADA will extend the “biological passports” they introduced in 2009 as a base line for athletes -- but then that wouldn't detect embryonic edits. We'll see how this pans out in the next decade or so.

If Discovery is really about Section 31 then it just became a lot more interesting. It also fixes most (but not all of the issues) in the show.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object_Linking_and_Embedding

"""OLE allows an editing application to export part of a document to another editing application and then import it with additional content. For example, a desktop publishing system might send some text to a word processor or a picture to a bitmap editor using OLE. The main benefit of OLE is to add different kinds of data to a document from different applications, like a text editor and an image editor. This creates a Compound File Binary Format document and a master file to which the document makes reference. Changes to data in the master file immediately affect the document that references it. This is called "linking" (instead of "embedding")."""

These are all the things I liked about Jaiku and Buzz.
Why did I pick G+ as an alternative to Twitter in my personal life given the boycott? It's a more thoughtful platform and offers me better abuse controls. While it's fun to sling 140 character zingers around, one thing I've really appreciated about Google's internal Plus instance (and missed about public Plus) is that it's easy to write essays about complicated topics (no, not That kind of essay), and be able to moderate thoughtful discussion. The commons is shared, but also the lines of who is primarily responsible for moderating what are clearer (e.g. the original poster/re-sharer) rather than being left only up to the platform's owner. And discussions can fork into reshares without endlessly tagging the original poster. [and, selfishly, I do have a direct line to the abuse team]

There's something on the Web that Doesn't Suck, and it badly needs your help: the Online Etymological Dictionary

...I've spent literally hours at a time going through it out of sheer joy and discovery of words and word origins (though it's also possible to dive in and get a quick and direct answer). The whole project has been largely a labour of love by Douglas Harper....
