Low-cost anti-hookworm drug boosts female farmers' physical fitness - Impoverished female farm workers infected with intestinal parasites known as hookworms saw significant improvements in physical fitness when they were treated with a low-cost deworming drug. The benefits were seen even in those with low level infections, according to a study co-authored by researchers at Yale and the nonprofit company InnovationsCZ.

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will discover thousands of exoplanets in orbit around the brightest stars in the sky. In a two-year survey of the solar neighborhood, TESS will monitor more than 500,000 stars for temporary drops in brightness caused by planetary transits. This first-ever spaceborne all-sky transit survey will identify planets ranging from Earth-sized to gas giants, around a wide range of stellar types and orbital distances. No ground-based survey can achieve this feat.

"Against Orion"

I've been practicing doing close-up shots of the Orion constellation as it sets early in the west now. Finally I think I've got one that I consider not too bad. At Lake Brown / Campion, Western Australia whilst waiting for the Milky Way core to rise, I sent my brother up a rocky ridge that lines the western shore of the lake. I did this for two reasons: (1) so that he was far enough that I could use my 85mm which nicely frames the length of Orion, and (2) taking a shot at a slightly upward angle means cutting through less atmosphere and reducing the effect of air glow which tends to spoil shots close to the horizon.

On the bed of the dry salt lake, I used an iOptron sky tracking mount to take essentially a two panel vertical mosaic (I actually took a four panel vertical pano but cropped the final image to the one shown as it seemed more dramatic close in). A Canon EOS6d (modified) was used through a Canon 85mm f/1.2 lens stopped down to f/3.2. All camera and lens settings were kept the same for all panels, and all shots were taken one immediately after the other. The iOptron tracking mount was used for the sky and turned off for the foreground panels. Stitching in PTGui, colour balance and background neutralisation in Pixinsight, noise reduction, saturation and some brightness / contrast adjustment in Photoshop. Details below.

Enjoy,
Will Vrbasso.

GDPR

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) seeks to create a harmonised data protection law framework across the EU and aims to give citizens back the control of their personal data, whilst imposing strict rules on those hosting and ‘processing’ this data, anywhere in the world. The Regulation also introduces rules relating to the free movement of personal data within and outside the EU.
Individuals are increasingly data-savvy and

• Understand how brands use their data for sales and marketing purposes
• Are aware of their rights with regard to their personal data
• Are concerned about the well-publicised threat of cyber data theft

Most organisations are concerned about the potential significant financial penalties the Regulation can bring, but some forward-thinking companies are also planning how to turn GDPR into an opportunity.

Here’s how to get a copy of what companies like

How deep learning is about to transform biomedical science http://www.kurzweilai.net/how-deep-learning-is-about-to-transform-biomedical-science

... Researchers at Google, Harvard University, and Gladstone Institutes have developed and tested new deep-learning algorithms that can identify details in terabytes of bioimages, replacing slow, less-accurate manual labeling methods.

Deep learning is a type of machine learning that can analyze data, recognize patterns, and make predictions. A new deep-learning approach to biological images, which the researchers call “in silico labeling” (ISL), can automatically find and predict features in images of “unlabeled” cells (cells that have not been manually identified by using fluorescent chemicals). ...
