Free-As-In-Beer Electricity In Greece?

Slashdot - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 9:58pm
PolygamousRanchKid writes New Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will lay out his radical left-wing government's policies in a speech later on Sunday, firmly rejecting any more austerity forced on his debt-strapped country by its euro zone partners. In his first major speech to parliament as premier, Tsipras is expected to say that Greece wants no more bailout money, plans to renegotiate its debt deal and wants a "bridge agreement" to tide the country over until a new pact is sealed. A second part of the speech will touch on his government's social and fiscal policy over the longer term and is likely to repeat pledges for such things as a rise in the minimum wage and free electricity for poorer Greeks. Which gets me to thinking: with free electricity, wouldn't that be a great business opportunity, to build a cloud of servers in poorer Greeks' basements? Maybe that is the real plan behind the free electricity idea.

RMS Objects To Support For LLVM's Debugger In GNU Emacs's Gud.el

Slashdot - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:57pm
An anonymous reader writes with the news that Richard Stallman is upset over the prospect of GNU Emacs's Grand Unified Debugger (Gud.el) supporting LLVM's LLDB debugger. Stallman says it looks like there is a systematic effort to attack GNU packages and calls for the GNU Project to respond strategically. He wrote his concerns to the mailing list after a patch emerged that would optionally support LLDB alongside GDB as an alternative debugger for Emacs. Other Emacs developers discounted RMS' claims by saying Emacs supports Windows and OS X, so why not support a BSD-licensed compiler/debugger? The Emacs maintainer has called the statements irrelevant and won't affect their decision to merge the LLDB support.

'Virtual virus' unfolds the flu on a CPU

Science Daily - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:27pm
Combining experimental data from X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, cryoelectron microscopy and lipidomics, researchers have built a complete model of the outer envelope of an influenza A virion for the first time. The approach, known as a coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulation, has allowed them to generate trajectories at different temperatures and lipid compositions -- revealing various characteristics that may help scientists better understand how the virus survives in the wild or find new ways to combat it.

Promising peptide for TBI, heart attack and stroke

Science Daily - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:27pm
By employing derivatives of humanin, a naturally occurring peptide encoded in the genome of cellular mitochondria, researchers are working to interrupt necrosis, buying precious time for tissues whose cellular mechanisms have called it quits.

Drug detectives

Science Daily - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:27pm
Good drugs are hard to design: they must not only effectively treat a medical condition, but they must also do so without having side effects that outweigh their benefits. Sometimes, toxic side effects aren't discovered until late in development, when substantial time and money have already been invested. Now, researchers have devised a new drug screen that capitalizes on the tendency of toxic compounds to alter the properties of the lipid bilayer that encases cells.

What's next in diets: Chili peppers?

Science Daily - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:27pm
A large percentage of the world's population -- fully one third, by the World Health Organization's estimates -- is currently overweight or obese. This staggering statistics has made finding ways to address obesity a top priority for many scientists around the globe, and now a group of researchers has found promise in the potential of capsaicin -- the chief ingredient in chili peppers -- as a diet-based supplement.

Bacteria's hidden traffic control

Science Daily - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:27pm
Not unlike an urban restaurant, the success of a bacterial cell depends on three things: localization, localization and localization. But the complete set of controls by which bacteria control the movement of proteins and other essential biological materials globally within the confines of their membrane walls has been something of a mystery. Now, researchers have parsed out the localization mechanisms that E. coli use to sort through and organize their subcellular components.

Tech Leaders Rank High Among 2014’s Biggest Philanthropists

Wired News - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 8:00pm

There was a time, not so long ago, when the country’s leading philanthropists were the oil barons and industrialists who helped build the nation’s infrastructure. Today, they’re the people building mobile messaging apps and the tiny waterproof cameras that you strap on your head before going skydiving.

The post Tech Leaders Rank High Among 2014’s Biggest Philanthropists appeared first on WIRED.
