Scientists just found a novel, cheap way to use CRISPR gene editing to fight cancer

"CRISPR is by all accounts a fascinating technology. Its headline feature is that it can literally be used to slice, dice, and otherwise manipulate the body’s genetic code—functions that could carry staggering implications for treating everything from inherited disorders to cancer to HIV/AIDS one day.

Now, new (though extremely early) research suggests that CRISPR could be used to vastly improve upon a new form of cancer-fighting methods that turn the body’s own immune T cells into specially targeted killers that attack cancerous tissue..."

I kinda missed sunrise since I slept in, however I did catch a few nice rays since it was only a few steps from the tent to this view :)

Tent view.

Not too bad i say. Note the nicely placed shovel and camp stove (melting some snow for a coffee), if you did not know better you would think this is a Advertorial ;)

On that point, the shovel (voile), best thing ever, at 700grams this thing is awesome, they (the manufacturer) do have a blurb about it that the material (6061-t6) has a tensile strength of 42ksi which rivals the strength and rigidity of steel, well i suppose thats kinda correct depending on the steel your comparing it too :) - like many things which advertise 'aerospace' materials or some crap I always have a chuckle at these kind of statements, i'll forgive Voile in this case since they do make a cracking shovel and it is very tough and rigid :)

Since I am plugging some product, the stove (msr windburner) is also awesome, they don't claim any 'aerospace' materials, however i have seen worse welding and material on the exhaust of several large aircraft :) the canister thing on these stoves is quite impressive, super light and simple as but seems pretty tough, the little burner section is a work of engineering art, can't fault it, i'll give it to MSR, they know how to make great products, albeit expensive..

Boils a bunch of snow in a matter of minutes and yup.. i can confirm it works really well in strong wind... the only problem is getting it lit in the first place :)

Note my nice little footwell in the snow next to the tent, best little trick Mike Edmondson showed me last year, makes me look less like one of the spiders in the hobbit movie (#2) when extracting or stowing myself inside the tent ;), I can also sit in the tent without having my knees around my ears. Brilliant.

"IT’S BEEN A big week for Loon. Just eight days ago, it was one of Alphabet’s moonshot projects, launching antennas attached to giant balloons into the stratosphere to beam internet down to Earth. Now it has announced its first commercial agreement: working with Telkom Kenya to provide internet service to parts of central Kenya, starting next year, and helping connect the citizens of a country where coverage hardly extends beyond major population centers.

This is the NH Republican response to their portion of the approximately 4 million students incensed by the lack of action on gun control who will become eligible to vote in the midterm elections:

The New Hampshire Republican state legislature is trying to make cash-poor students ineligible to vote, on technicalities of their own fabrication.
Expect other states with similar statutes to attempt the same..

The article also reminds us of Trump lying about electoral fraud..

From the article linked below:

New Hampshire, as you may recall, went for Hillary Clinton by less than three thousand votes in 2016, and then-Gov. Maggie Hassan defeated incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte by a little over a thousand votes. Following the election, Donald Trump made the profoundly baseless claim that he only lost in New Hampshire because its liberal neighbor, Massachusetts, “bused in” thousands of voters to vote illegally. There is no evidence for this ever happening, of course, because there doesn’t need to be.

But as Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern notes, the current effort has been ongoing for decades:

After the 26th Amendment lowered the national voting age to 18 in 1971, New Hampshire declared it would deny the ballot to college students who might leave the state after graduating. A federal court forced the state to scrap this plan in 1972, holding the Constitution protects students’ right to vote where they live. Forty years later, the GOP-controlled state Legislature revived efforts to disenfranchise college students, passing a bill that inaccurately told new voters they could only register if they planned to live in New Hampshire indefinitely. The state Supreme Court unanimously invalidated the law in 2015.
