Internet of Things to really bugger everything up "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

If you think that technology is already giving free rein for twats and psychos to make a mess of everything, you really havent seen anything yet, experts have warned today. The Internet of Things, which has come of age in recent years and is expected to consist of about 50 billion objects by 2020, is going to create a clusterfuck of quite unimaginable proportions.

Basically the Internet of Things means the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with electronics or network connectivity, enabling them to collect and exchange data, said Professor James Archer of the University of Durham.

Imagine that app that supposedly lets you control your central heating from your mobile, except it doesnt but instead causes the boiler to explode because you were too thick to programme it properly, only a thousand times worse. Then imagine it being connected to everything else, so that any spotty kid with a computer can hack into your hopelessly unprotected home network and dick around with everything you own if you tick him off for taking a piss on your car.

Some pessimists are fearful that the Internet of Things may lead to hacking into sensors to make other peoples lights come on at random times, or your boss being able to monitor exactly how much time you spend crying in the toilet. More optimistic scientists believe that it will give errant husbands a plausible excuse for the trail of orders for Gimp outfits on the credit cards if someone forwards this to their wives. Archer, however, thinks both sides are missing the point.

Put in sensors and actuators and the technology will come part of much wider cyber-physical systems, he said. Smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation, smart cities all operated by fuckwits or angry nerds who have never been within five yards of a vagina. The moment in history when ultra-connected devices intersect with ultra-disconnected brains. Someone shoot me now, please, and good luck to the dolphins when they come to sort this all out.

Japanese Consortium to Research Direct Trading of Electricity with Blockchain "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A Japanese consortium is to research the use of blockchain technology to determine the price of surplus electricity generated by photovoltaic power generation, and a new system capable of direct trading.

Japan Unisys to Build Blockchain Platform to Facilitate Trading of Electricity

A partnership between the University of Tokyo, IT company Japan Unisys, electric utility Kansai Electric Power, and Mitsubishi UFJ Bank, the largest in Japan, will study the viability of a dedicated platform powered by blockchain that manages direct trading of electricity.

The research addresses the widespread use of renewable energy such as solar power generation, which is leading to a change of the current power supply system from a conventional large-scale intensive type to a self-sustained distributed type.

Researchers estimate that in the future electricity will be directly traded through a dedicated platform.

As distributed ledger technology spreads in the financial sector and other industries, including energy management, the Japanese consortium will test a blockchain powered platform to test how well it determines the purchase price between electric consumers and consumers. For instance, a production consumer who uses the electricity generated by himself and sells the surplus.

The study will use the surplus electricity generated with solar power equipment at consumers houses to determine prices, conduct simulated transactions with blockchain technology, and send power to multiple consumers, according to the announcement.

Through this empirical research, we will acquire knowledge on power direct transactions using blockchain technology, and will continue to provide more practical empirical research, such as verification at home and collaboration with financial institutions. We will contribute to the realization of a society to utilize in a sustainable manner.

The distributed system will be developed by Japan Unisys with Mitsubishi UFJ Bank (MUFG) advising on the use of blockchain on settlement and transactions.

The utility company will create the demonstration system at the same experiment center, and the University of Tokyo is in charge of the research and findings.

MUFG is highly involved with the tech...

Injection site lichenoid dermatitis following pneumococcal vaccination. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Dermatol Ther (Heidelb). 2016 Jun ;6(2):287-98. Epub 2016 Mar 17. PMID: 26988991 Abstract Title:  Injection Site Lichenoid Dermatitis Following Pneumococcal Vaccination: Report and Review of Cutaneous Conditions Occurring at Vaccination Sites. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Cutaneous dermatoses and malignancies have occurred at the sites of vaccines.PURPOSE: To describe a man who developed a lichenoid dermatitis at the pneumococcal vaccine injection site and to review cutaneous dermatoses and malignancies occurring at vaccination sites.METHODS: PubMed was used to search the following terms, separately and in combination: adverse, condition, cutaneous, dermatosis, dermatitis, injection, PCV13, pneumococcal, pneumonia, prevnar, reaction, skin, site, vaccination, and vaccine. All papers were reviewed, and relevant manuscripts, along with their reference citations, were evaluated.RESULTS: Several vaccines-including bacillus Calmette-Guerin, hepatitis B, influenza, leishmaniasis, meningitis, pneumococcal, smallpox, tetanus (alone and in combination with diphtheria, pertussis, polio, Haemophilus influenza type B or plague and yellow fever), and varicella-zoster-have been associated with post-vaccination site reactions. A 70-year-old male developed a lichenoid dermatitis that occurred at the pneumococcal vaccine injection site within 2 weeks after PCV13 vaccination; the erythematous nodule resolved spontaneously within 9 weeks following immunization.CONCLUSIONS: Dermatoses at the injection sites of vaccines can be granulomatous, immunity-related conditions, infections, lichenoid, neutrophilic, or pseudolymphomatous. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common vaccination site-associated malignancies; however, melanoma and sarcomas (dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, fibrosarcoma, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma) are also smallpox vaccine-related site neoplasms. A cutaneous immunocompromised district that is created by vaccine-induced local immunologic changes is hypothesized to be the pathogenesis of vaccination site reactions.

Cervical cancers after human papillomavirus vaccination. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Obstet Gynecol. 2009 Feb ;113(2 Pt 2):550-2. PMID: 19155953 Abstract Title:  Cervical cancers after human papillomavirus vaccination. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Current randomized clinical trials have shown that the quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can reduce the morbidity of precancerous lesions associated with HPV infection of vaccine-related subtypes. However, to date, there is no definite evidence showing the vaccine reduces the incidence of invasive cervical carcinoma.CASES: We present two cases--one young, vaccinated woman who developed cervical carcinoma that was unrelated to HPV and another who developed cervical carcinoma secondary to infection with an HPV subtype not covered by the vaccine. Both patients were treated successfully and remained well without evidence of cancer.CONCLUSION: Long-term follow-up data are needed to evaluate the prophylactic effectiveness of the current HPV vaccine. These cases could represent non-vaccine-related HPV infections. Young women must be thoroughly counseled about the efficacy and limitations of the vaccine and about continuing lifelong screening even after vaccination.

Column: The Spiritual Legacy of Matthew Shepard "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Pagan Perspectives


I had always been wary of strangers. Every gay child growing up in the 1970s learned this important life skill. American culture was, and in many ways remains, openly antagonistic toward our kind; it made sure that we knew our place. I grew up hearing stories, often in hushed tones, about men who had been discovered to be limp-wristed fairies, and who were subsequently shunned, fired from their jobs, and forced to move away to start new lives as outcasts.

But living near San Francisco meant that I had a certain level of protection from the harsh realities of a homophobic world, as this was the place many of those outcasts would journey in their search for acceptance. Life in the Bay Area was not idyllic for a queer person, as many erroneously assume. I was bullied, threatened, taunted, ridiculed, denied jobs, passed over for promotions, and even physically attacked for being gay. In spite of this I could also see how acceptance of different types of people and lifestyles was gradually increasing, and that these incidents were not indicative of everyday life. I knew that I had it better in the Bay Area than many others did elsewhere. As I got older, I became cautious in public so as to not draw unwanted attention to myself from potentially violent straight males, but I never once felt threatened in those spaces that were queer-specific, such as our local gay bar, where friends would gather to be ourselves and hopefully make connections along the way.

In October of 1998 that all changed.

Matthew Shepard [Matthew Shepard Foundation].

I remember sitting in my apartment when the news hit: a 21-year-old gay man in Laramie, Wyoming had been lured out of a bar by two men, who then robbed him, pistol-whipped him, tied him to a fence-post in near-freezing temperatures, set him on fire, and left him to die. It was a horrific, violent murder, and one that was fueled by anti-gay hatred. One of the two attackers (whom Im not naming here because they dont deserve any more notoriety than they have already received) later went on record to say that Shepard needed killing. The night I did it, he said, I did have hatred for homosexuals.

Both men were quickly arrested and found guilty, and they are now serving two consecutive-life sentences without the possibility of parole.

This brutal attack shocked the nation. Matthew certainly wasnt the first gay man to have been beaten to de...

Logan Paul Apologizes for Controversial Unboxing Video "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

LOS ANGELES YouTube star Logan Paul issued yet another apology today after posting a vlog in which he opened up a casket in a local cemetery titled UNBOXING IN GRAVEYARD!! (SAVAGE).

The video, deleted less than three hours after being uploaded, showed Paul in Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Paul can be seen digging up a casket and opening it with a crowbar while his friends blew air horns.

Woah check out this killer swag, Paul said in the video while examining what appears to be a wedding ring. So, we got a dude inside who looks like he hasnt hit the gym in years. Whats up, bro? Whats with those skinny arms, bro?

Paul then proceeded to remove the body from the casket and deadlift it, shouting, Get it? DEAD-lifting! Then, Pauls friends danced around him and played vuvuzelas to the tune of Despacito while Paul moved the corpses mouth to mime the Justin Beiber parts.

Two hours after the video had been deleted, Paul posted an apology on Twitter.

Lets start with this. Im sorry. Again. I never meant to offend anybody when I posted a video where I unbox a coffin, check out the cool collectibles inside, take out the corpse, and deadlift it. LOL! Sorry, just remembering that joke. Fuckin classic. Anyway, all I wanted to do was raise awareness about death, which is a very serious issue because if you are dead you cant like and subscribe. #logang #maverick

YouTube issued a statement in response to the controversial behavior.

We do not condone Mr. Pauls behavior even though we do profit from it, a YouTube spokesperson said. Mr. Paul must take responsibility for the broad platform we allow him to abuse time and time again. At this point, we are prepared to have meetings to consider weighing the option of potentially demonetizing his channel. We implore Mr. Paul to explore more advertiser friendly content, such as plagiarized video game reviews or monetized reaction videos to mass shootings.

At press time, Paul had just announced a charity boxing match between him and the corpse hed dug up.

Basocellular carcinoma in a smallpox vaccination scar. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am. 1988 ;16(2):137-9. PMID: 3050329 Abstract Title:  [Basocellular carcinoma in a smallpox vaccination scar]. Abstract:  A 52 year old housewife was vaccinated against smallpox at the age of 18, on her right deltoid area. At the age of 50 she noticed erythema and scaling on the vaccination scar and 2 years later a nodule appear that enlarged during the following 3 months. There was no history nor skin changes suggestive of significant sun exposure. The histological examination of an initial biopsy and of the subsequently excised lesion revealed a basal cell carcinoma of the solid type. The relevant literature was reviewed and discussed with emphasis on sex and age incidence, age and site of vaccination, free interval between inoculation and tumor appearance, coexistence or not of other sun induced neoplasias and precancerous lesions and other possibly relevant clinical and etiopathogenetic aspects.

Assessing the tumorigenic phenotype of VERO cells in adult and newborn nude mice. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Biologicals. 2008 Jan ;36(1):65-72. Epub 2007 Oct 22. PMID: 17933552 Abstract Title:  Assessing the tumorigenic phenotype of VERO cells in adult and newborn nude mice. Abstract:  VERO cell lines are important substrates for viral vaccine manufacture. The mechanism by which these cells became neoplastically transformed is unknown. During tissue-culture passage, VERO cells can develop the capacity to form tumors. Although at the passage levels (around p140) currently used for vaccine manufacture, VERO cells are non-tumorigenic, questions have been raised about safety issues that might be associated with this capacity to acquire a tumorigenic phenotype. To begin to address these issues, the tumorigenicity of VERO cell lines, derived at different passage levels under different growth conditions, were evaluated in 365-day assays in adult and newborn nude mice. High passage (p>200) VERO cell lines established by random passaging in tissue culture produced tumors in adult (10 out of 27) mice and newborn (21 out of 30) mice, respectively. In contrast, a high passage (p>250) cell line established by passage at sub-confluence produced tumors only in newborn mice (16 out of 30). Progressively growing tumors began forming at 36 days in newborns and at 69 days in adults. Higher tumor incidences and shorter tumor latencies suggest that newborn nude mice may be more sensitive than adults in detecting the expression of a tumorigenic phenotype by some VERO cell lines.

PMID:  In Vitro Cell Dev Biol. 1985 Nov ;21(11):649-52. PMID: 4066602 Abstract Title:  Activation of metastatic potential in African green monkey kidney cell lines by prolonged in vitro culture. Abstract:  Studies on the tumorigenicity of Vero kidney cells of Cercopithecus aethiops monkey origin were extended to various passage levels of BSC-1 aneuploid cells and to low passage CV-1 diploid cells (derived also from C. aethiops monkey kidney). It was found that BSC-1 cells -- like Vero cells -- showed increased tumorigenicity with increasing passage level in antithymocyte globulin (ATG) treated newborn rats and in nude mice. Cells passaged over 250 times in cultures formed invasive adenocarcinomas in newborn rats. Their malignant tumor growth was further demonstrated around the 500 passage level when tumor metastases were detected in the lungs of four of the 14 inoculated rats. Vero cells induced such lung metastases in rats already at passage 227. CV-1 diploid cells at low passage level produced small nodules of epithelioid cells in newborn rats at 6th day after inoculation that had disappeared by the 21st day, and caused no local invasion nor lung metastasis. In vitro tumorigenicity tests on BSC-1 and CV-1 cells, using chick embryo skin, human muscle and colony formation in agarose, confirmed the animal test results. The results of this study indicate that BSC-1 and Vero cell lines at low and high passage levels may prove to be useful tools to study the molecular basis of malignancy.

Is Demand For Bitcoin Mining in Decline? Chip Maker Slashes Target "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), the worlds largest dedicated independent chipmaker, has predicted a drop in demand from the cryptocurrency mining community in the fourth quarter this year. The growth target of 7 to 9 percent was slashed to 6.5 percent partly due to the demand dynamics of bitcoin miners.

Crypto Mining Demand For TSMC Chips to Weaken Further In Q4 2018, Says CEO

C. C. Wei, Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairman of TSMC told investors at the companys third quarter 2018 earnings conference that business growth would be offset by continued weakness in cryptocurrency mining demand.

Moving into fourth quarter, despite the current market uncertainties, our business will benefit from the continuous steep ramp of
7-nanometer for several high-end smartphones as well as the demand for 16/12-nanometer for the launches of new-generation GPU and
AI. However, this growth will be partially offset by continued weakness in cryptocurrency mining demand and inventory management by
our customers.

The company forecasts growth between 5 and 7 percent for the overall semiconductor market excluding memory, while foundry is expected to grow between 6% and 7%. Weakening demand from cryptocurrency miners has forced the firm to adjust the growth estimate to 6.5 percent in U.S. dollar terms, according to the chief executive.

However, our business is also negatively impacted by further weakening of cryptocurrency mining demand. As a result, we estimate our 2018 growth rate will be about 6.5% in U.S. dollar term, which is close to the foundry industrys growth but slightly below our 7% to 9% guidance given in the last conference.

The downshift in mining profits is the main responsible for the companys revision of its full-year sales target, citing uncertainty in the cryptocurrency market as its reason. In April, the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company lowered its 2018 revenue guidance to 10% growth from 10-15%, estimating that about 10% of the Asian chipmakers revenue depends on cryptocurrency mining demand.

Major Online Rental Platform Allows Users to be Paid in Ripple "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Omni, the online item rental and storage management startup, is now allowing its users to get paid in Ripple, capitalizing off of the cryptocurrency boom. The addition of the XRP payment method comes after the startup raised $25 million in XRP this past January.

The company will be paying users out of their own stash of XRP, which is worth significantly less than it was in January, but users will still have the option to cash out in USD if they arent interested in the volatility of cryptocurrency.

Omnis founder and CEO, Tom McLeod, spoke to TechCrunch about the companys latest move, confidently expressing that all companies should have a crypto strategy in order to prepare for the future.

I think any company scaling today has to have a crypto strategy. This is the start of ours, he said.

Omni originally began as an item storage solution that is significantly more efficient and cost effective than traditional storage methods, like renting a storage unit. When a user has an item that they need stored, Omni sends a representative to pick up, photograph, and transport the item to a large storage facility, which proves to be significantly cheaper than renting an entire storage unit for one item.

Once a user needs the item (or items) back, they can request to have them delivered to their residence within a few hours of sending the request, 24/7. The service has since added another, more profitable, feature, called Marketplace, that allows users to rent out their unused items while generating side income.

Omni is now requiring users to itemize the unused items that they are looking to rent, rather than grouping them in one container for Omni to take. Users looking to offload and rent out items grouped in a suitcase or a large container now must pay double the storage fee, while collecting the same rental profits from the items in the container.

Marketplace is driving Omni growth, and has always been the core of the long-term vision. Closed containers dont grow the business, but move almost as much. Were basically the same price as competitors now for them. It also makes it potentially more likely that small items will be itemized. Were going to launch kits/playlists that will allow for grouping in the coming months, McLeod explained.

Transmission of yellow fever vaccine virus through breast-feeding. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2010 Feb 12 ;59(5):130-2. PMID: 20150888 Abstract Title:  Transmission of yellow fever vaccine virus through breast-feeding - Brazil, 2009. Abstract:  In April, 2009, the state health department of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, was notified by the Cachoeira do Sul municipal health department of a case of meningoencephalitis requiring hospitalization in an infant whose mother recently had received yellow fever vaccine during a postpartum visit. The Field Epidemiology Training Program of the Secretariat of Surveillance in Health of the Brazilian Ministry of Health assisted state and municipal health departments with an investigation. This report summarizes the results of that investigation, which determined that the infant acquired yellow fever vaccine virus through breast-feeding. The mother reported 2 days of headache, malaise, and low fever occurring 5 days after receipt of yellow fever vaccine. The infant, who was exclusively breast-fed, was hospitalized at age 23 days with seizures requiring continuous infusion of intravenous anticonvulsants. The infant received antimicrobial and antiviral treatment for meningoencephalitis. The presence of 17DD yellow fever virus was detected by reverse transcription--polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in the infant's cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); yellow fever--specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies also were present in serum and CSF. The infant recovered completely, was discharged after 24 days of hospitalization, and has had normal neurodevelopment and growth through age 6 months. The findings in this report provide documentation that yellow fever vaccine virus can be transmitted via breast-feeding. Administration of yellow fever vaccine to breast-feeding women should be avoided except in situations where exposure to yellow fever viruses cannot be avoided or postponed.

A Curated List of Native Responses to Elizabeth Warren "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In 2012 when Elizabeth Warren first spoke about being "part Delaware and part Cherokee" and about a photo of someone in her family who had high cheekbones, I wrote several blog posts to help people understand why her remarks were harmful to Native people and Native nations.

Now in 2018, Warren took a DNA test, presumably, to get trump off her back. She released a video about her test. Doing that made matters worse. Because she's more visible now than she was then, the conversations were--and are--much louder. I'm curating some links to articles and posts by Indigenous people that I think will be helpful to teachers and librarians who read AICL. I'll be back to insert more links. Please let me know of ones I should add.

If you won the lottery............... "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The nation is buzzing because we have a historic jackpot, 1.4 billion when I last checked. I have heard many conversations and read many posts on what people would do if they won. I am noticing that once a prepper/survivlist/homesteader, you always seem to be one. I see preppers talking of building greenhouses, having live stock and building BOL's. How many billionaires are concerned with building a root cellar? It seems prepping gets in your blood and that is who you become.

Bitcoin Intentions: Are We Aiming to Replace the Status Quo or Become Them?

When the idea of a working digital currency like bitcoin was introduced, many of its early adopters disliked the current bureaucratic system, with a cartel of bankers pulling the worlds monetary strings. Over time, however, something weird has happened and the idea of permissionless innovation perverted into people literally asking nation states for permission, begging for ETFs, and creating a settlement layer for the new 1%.
