In 2009, malaria caused an estimated 781 000 deaths, mostly among African children. [http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs094/en/]
One of every five childhood deaths in Africa is due to malaria. A young child dies of malaria in Africa every 30 seconds.

GlaxoSmithKline (GKS) is the owner/manufacturer of several currently used adult malarial prophylactics, including Malarone. Malarone remains the most widely used malaria preventative by tourists, and according to GSK has a efficacy coefficient of more than 90.

Malarone is protected by patents since 2000 [http://www.drugpatentwatch.com/ultimate/preview/tradename/index.php?query=MALARONE] that prevent any generic versions from being sold [http://malaria.emedtv.com/malarone/generic-malarone.html]

Those patents will expire in May 2014 [http://malaria.emedtv.com/malarone/generic-malarone.html]

Yesterday GlaxoSmithKline annouced a miracle vacine for Malaria that could be licensed and rolled out by 2015 [http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/18/us-malaria-vaccine-scientist-idUSTRE79H59220111018]

Just connect the dots and wonder how many died to protect profits

It looks like the World got a magical divine message with Siri on the iPhone 4S [http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/siri.html]. This sexy female voice named Siri will be our useful intelligent Agent. The Artificial Intelligence is on stage and marketers pray on these fantasies [http://techcrunch.com/2011/10/16/siriquora-and-the-future-of-search/]. Besides my skepticism i'll give some credit to apple engineering team, for the limited set of functions that it's supposed to do. [http://www.jeffwofford.com/?p=817]

If we look back, apple introduced the Macintosh in 1984 with a now-famous commercial ['1984' Apple Macintosh Commercial (Full advert, Hi-Quality)] suggesting that the Mac can help turn 1984 into something other than Orwell's (IBM's) dark vision, but now the roles are reversed, the words are reversed. Put Siri on a mirror and you will see iriS that magical mythical divine messenger in the Iliad, Goddess of sea and sky, she is also represented as supplying the Clouds with the water needed to deluge the world, consistent with her identification with the rainbow.

This is pure fantasy like Fantasia, a 1940 Walt Disney animated film when iriS appear at the end of the segment featuring the Pastoral Symphony by Beethoven.[Pastoral Symphony of Beethoven, part 4 [Fantasia 1940]]

"Control over the use of one's ideas really constitutes control over other people's lives; and it is usually used to make their lives more difficult."
Richard Stallman

Guido van Rossum originally shared:
 
Last night I gave my rambling "History of Python" talk at the Dropbox office in downtown San Francisco, to an audience of Dropbox engineers and their friends. They taped it and put it on YouTube already! (The lighting isn't ideal, but it will have to do.) A good time was had by all. Great questions and great (unrecorded) conversations afterwards!
