Somehow I missed this when it came out.  Calorie restriction has previously been shown to extend lifespan in a wide variety of animals from microbes to rats.  Now that result has been extended to primates - specifically, rhesus monkeys.  A 30% calorie restriction resulted in about a 20% increase in lifetime when looking only at age related deaths, and about a 10% increase in lifetime when other causes of death were included.

Most people in the developed world die from age related diseases - cancer and heart disease are included - so the 20% increase seems more likely to apply to us.  Still, the net effect of 30% calorie restriction is that the lifetime amount of food one gets to eat is still reduced by about 10%.

Caloric restriction (CR) without malnutrition increases longevity and delays the onset of age-associated disorders in short-lived species, from unicellular organisms to laboratory mice and rats. The value of CR as a tool to understand human ageing relies on translatability of CR’s effects in primates. Here we show that CR significantly improves age-related and all-cause survival in monkeys on a long-term ~30% restricted diet since young adulthood.

A new wolf species has been found through genetic analysis.  It turns out that the African creatures that look similar to Eurasian golden jackals are in fact as distantly related from them as the grey wolf.  They've been assigned to a new species, the golden wolf.

Genetic analysis by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Washington has found golden jackals of Africa and Eurasia are two distantly related species.

Kind of sad that military offices need protection by civilians, but it's good that we have civilians able to do it.

A reason not to have wireless connectivity in your car.

Miller and Valasek’s full arsenal includes functions that at lower speeds fully kill the engine, abruptly engage the brakes, or disable them altogether. The most disturbing maneuver came when they cut the Jeep’s brakes, leaving me frantically pumping the pedal as the 2-ton SUV slid uncontrollably into a ditch. The researchers say they’re working on perfecting their steering control—for now they can only hijack the wheel when the Jeep is in reverse. Their hack enables surveillance too: They can track a targeted Jeep’s GPS coordinates, measure its speed, and even drop pins on a map to trace its route.

I read many articles about this. There is much that isn't being told. The issue was discovered and the people that did it "demonstrated" that it can be done. They did not, however, go into detail about how it was accomplished. There were errors and omissions in the original article and they have later come out to say that not all uconnect systems are vulnerable and the ones that are need to have that Sprint connection active or they are not vulnerable, either.

As a 1980s era vet I admit to amusement at Trump's saying of McCain, “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”  Maybe it's because I often see McCain as a blowhard whose military experience, while honorable, was in how to help lose a war rather than in how to help win one.

Just in case you've ever wondered what those bugaboos of the left, the Koch brothers, really want, here's a good example:  they'd like to eliminate government handouts to industry.

In his own remarks, Charles Koch focused on wealth inequality, lamenting what he views as the country’s drift to a “two-tiered society” that is “destroying opportunities for the disadvantaged and creating welfare for the rich.” ...

“Misguided policies are creating a permanent underclass, crippling our economy and corrupting the business community,” he said.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/charles-koch-decries-corporate-welfare-as-scott-walker-carly-fiorina-court-donor-network-1438490077
Charles Koch, the billionaire industrialist who co-founded a sprawling web of conservative interest groups, opened his biannual conference here Saturday by calling for an end to corporate welfare and singling out “big banks” as a primary offender.

Out of 23 primary candidates from both parties, Clinton's net favorability ratings are worse than anyone except Trump and Christie.  Carson and Walker are consistently in the top 3.

I just got an email from the Fiorina campaign that was amusing enough I have to share it:

Fellow Conservative,

Since Carly announced her candidacy for the Presidency just about 10 weeks ago, she's literally answered hundreds of questions. And, believe me, there have been some doozies.

A member of the media even asked Carly if her hormones would prevent her from being a good president. What?? They wouldn't dare ask Hillary Clinton the same thing!

You won't believe Carly’s response:

Carly quickly answered, "...I think American history is littered with examples of men whose judgment was clouded by their hormones, including in the Oval Office."

I hope she makes it into the debates.

Arguably, the viability of a currency area depends more on the flexibility and dynamism of the economy: it is the ease with which the U.S. is able to reallocate resources to where they can be used more productively that best explains its success, not its fiscal transfers.

On this analysis, the fate of the euro depends less on what happens to Greece and more on what lessons Southern European voters draw from its experience. If they pin their hopes on a fiscal transfer union for which there is no political appetite in Northern Europe, then the euro may yet fail.

If, however, they conclude that the way to avoid a collapse of the banking system is to push ahead with ambitious reforms—for example, in education, infrastructure, public administration and product and labor markets—designed to transform the productive potential of the economy, then the eurozone may yet survive-and even prosper.

In the past week, the eurozone has come closer than ever to unraveling, or at least losing one of its members. Simon Nixon explains why it didn’t happen.
