The Internet of Anything: A Startup That Gets Old Device Companies Hip to the Net



Behmor isn’t some hot tech startup. It’s an established company that’s trying to transform its products for a new age, and it’s doing so with help from another outfit called DADO Labs. This is DADO’s mission: helping existing companies like Behmor get in on the Internet of Things action before hot new startups eat their lunch.

“It’s about helping brands that are being disrupted or could be disrupted the way Honeywell was disrupted by Nest,” says DADO CEO Tom Worley, referring to way the venerable thermostat company was upstaged by home automation startup acquired by Google last year. “We can help them respond quickly, in a few months rather than a few years.”

Common as Dirt: New Antibiotic May Conquer Superbugs

A handful of dirt from a field has yielded what may be the first of a new family of antibiotics. Early tests suggest this one has the potential to be especially powerful, providing a new weapon against the growing threat of drug-resistant superbugs.

They've named it teixobactin. It comes from a soil-dwelling bacteria that usually doesn't thrive in the lab, so it hadn't been developed as a source of antibiotics.

"The compound is highly potent against a broad range of Gram-positive microbes, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE)," the company said in a statement.

The Tech That Will Change Your Life in 2015

 

This was a year of big technology promises—2015 is the year we find out how many live up to the hype.

We looked into our crystal ball for the gadgets, upgrades and ideas we think have the greatest chance to change—and hopefully improve—your life in the year ahead. Will this be the year you actually wear a smartwatch, drop cable TV and love Windows again?

The new year may not bring you a shatterproof phone or a truly smart home, but here is what’s coming and what you can do to be ready for it.

Algal virus found slowing down the brains of humans

An algal virus called ATCV-1 was first discovered several years ago in brain tissue samples taken from deceased humans. Because the researchers couldn't confirm if the virus had made its way there before or after death, not much came from the discovery initially. But more recently, ATCV-1 was discovered again, and this time in the throats of patients affected by psychiatric disease who were very much alive. Was there a connection between the presence of this little-known virus and the patients' psychiatric conditions? Led by paediatric infectious disease expert Robert Yolken, a team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University in the US decided to find out.

ATCV-1 virus is a type of chlorovirus, which typically infects certain species of freshwater green algae. While viruses that infect what’s known as ‘higher plants’, such as ferns, conifers, and flowering plants, are among the smallest viruses known to science, the viruses that infect algae are some of the largest found to date. They have a whopping 600 protein-encoding genes, and act more like bacteria than a virus. They also have the ability to change the cognitive function of their human hosts, as Yolken and his team discovered. 

To do so, they first wanted to find out if the virus was present in healthy people, having already found it in psychiatric patients. Of the 92 healthy people they checked, all based in Balimore in the US, the virus was found in 43 percent of them, and it appeared to be doing weird things to their brains.

According to Elizabeth Pennisi at Science, the subjects who were infected with the virus performed 10 percent worse than their uninfected peers when asked to complete visual processing tasks. One such activity involved drawing a line that connected a sequence of numbers spread randomly across a page, and the infected patients completed it 10 percent slower. They were also shown to have shorter attention spans, and a higher probability of being distracted, the researchers reveal in their study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. As Pennisi notes, "The effects (of ATCV-1) were modest, but significant." (...)

I had a friend email me this when it came out (as if I would miss one) and I had to write him back to tell him that there is actually scale of purity within mathematics itself as well.  On one end there was modeling and analysis which border on physics then you move on through probability and statistics, algebra, number theory, geometry and topology, and finally ending up at set theory, logic, and foundations.   I think you can guess which end of the spectrum I tended to concentrate on.

Interesting, that Science is seen as the gateway drug to actual (hard) Mathematics.   Although the author didn't extrapolate, one sees how this unfortunate progression can often lead to Philosophy. 

     I think he may actually be on to something here.  I hate it when that happens.
