First genetic engineering therapy approved by the FDA for leukemia | Ars Technica

First genetic engineering therapy approved by the FDA for leukemia | Ars Technica: "For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration has approved a therapy that involves genetically engineering a patient’s own cells, the agency announced Wednesday. The therapy, called Kymriah (tisagenlecleucel) by Novartis, will be used to reprogram the immune cells of pediatric and young adult patients with a certain type of leukemia, called B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. During a 22-day out-of-body retraining, patients’ immune cells—specifically T cells that patrol the body and destroy enemies—get a new gene that allows them to identify and attack the leukemia cells."

Code Name Insight: And Today's Disaster Is...Prepping 101

Code Name Insight: And Today's Disaster Is...Prepping 101: "And Today's Disaster Is...Prepping 101 Another day, another disaster.  Things are moving along quickly, from disaster to disaster, as we go from one day (a possible nuclear attack) to the next (a racist mob) to the next (a terror attack on Barcelona).  What do all of these things have in common?  Your need to be prepared for anything that could happen because quite literally, ANY disaster could happen to you from day to day so you need to be ready."

My Arm-Chair Quarterbacking

With Hurricane Harvey having visited destruction on our neighbors, friends, and family to the west, I am going to share some posts from a blog I follow regarding safety and disaster preparation.

For most who are not already prepared for these types of events, it's a little too late, but I am doing this in the hopes that it will help people to prepare for the next event, because there always is a next event.

I will re-post each of these posts as individual posts here on my blog.

Here are a few of the terms used by this blogger, in case you are not sure what they are:

BoB - Bug Out Bag

EDC - Every Day Carry (bag)

WTSHTF - When The Shit Hits The Fan

SHTF - Shit Hits The Fan

TEOTWAWKI - The End Of The World As We Know It

Like the Boyscouts...Be Prepared!

Gadfly: Halliburton And Microsoft Do Not Compute For OPEC  |  Rigzone

Gadfly: Halliburton And Microsoft Do Not Compute For OPEC  |  Rigzone: "The killer app here, in every sense of the word, is providing crews and their managers with an integrated platform; a suite of sensors and software communicating seamlessly, updating constantly and available to all involved. Halliburton already has such a platform, called DecisionSpace. Marrying it with Microsoft's cloud-computing and artificial intelligence capability has the potential to not only take and organize more of the data spewing from an E&P client's fields but use machine learning to make better decisions about, say, when a vital piece of equipment needs to be replaced or how a fracking job could be done more quickly and cheaply."

Microsoft, Halliburton announce digital transformation partnership

Microsoft, Halliburton announce digital transformation partnership: "As a first step in the alliance, Halliburton has made DecisionSpace365 available on Azure, enabling real-time data streaming from IoT edge devices in oilfields and the ability to apply deep-learning models to optimize drilling and production to lower costs for customers. With the power of DecisionSpace on Azure, big compute and predictive deep-learning algorithms will help optimize field assets and enable next-generation exploration and deep-earth models by using software to fill gaps in sensor data, while reducing the number of steps and time required to render models."
