You Learn Something New Every Day.... Mercator Projection Map

 

 I don't remember learning about this back when I was in school.

 

Mercator Projection  mapping inflates the sizes of land masses away from the equator.





Here's an interesting article about the misconceptions of the Mercator map 


and on this website, you can type in the name of a country and drag and drop it to compare

the size of it to other countries.

If You Read One Obituary Today, Make It This One...

 

Renay Mandel Corren

El Paso, TX—A plus-sized Jewish lady redneck died in El Paso on Saturday.

Of itself hardly news, or good news if you're the type that subscribes to the notion that anybody not named you dying in El Paso, Texas is good news. In which case have I got news for you: the bawdy, fertile, redheaded matriarch of a sprawling Jewish-Mexican-Redneck American family has kicked it.

An Interesting Article Regarding Moderna from 2016

 

Inside Moderna Therapeutics, biotech's most secretive startup

By Damian Garde Sept. 13, 2016

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — At first glance, Moderna Therapeutics looks like the most enviable biotech startup in the world. It has smashed fundraising records and teamed up with pharmaceutical giants as it pursues a radical plan to revolutionize medicine by transforming human cells into drug factories.

But the reality is more complicated.

A STAT investigation found that the company’s caustic work environment has for years driven away top talent and that behind its obsession with secrecy, there are signs Moderna has run into roadblocks with its most ambitious projects.

The company has published no data supporting its vaunted technology, and it’s so secretive that some job candidates have to sign nondisclosure agreements before they come in to interview. Outside venture capitalists said Moderna has so many investors clamoring to get in that it can afford to turn away any who ask too many questions. Some small players have been given only a peek at Moderna’s data before committing millions to the company, according to people familiar with the matter.

“It’s a case of the emperor’s new clothes,” said a former Moderna scientist. “They’re running an investment firm, and then hopefully it also develops a drug that’s successful.”

Moderna’s technology promised to subvert the whole field, creating therapeutic proteins inside the body instead of in manufacturing plants. The key: harnessing messenger RNA, or mRNA.

In nature, mRNA molecules function like recipe books, directing cellular machinery to make specific proteins. Moderna believes it can play that system to its advantage by using synthetic mRNA to compel cells to produce whichever proteins it chooses. In effect, the mRNA would turn cells into tiny drug factories.

It’s highly risky. Big pharma companies had tried similar work and abandoned it because it’s exceedingly hard to get RNA into cells without triggering nasty side effects. But if Moderna can get it to work, the process could be used to treat scores of diseases, including cancers and rare diseases that can be death sentences for children.

Way Back Wednesday

 It has been a rough day and I am tired. WBW will be delayed. It may even be Thursday. I hadn't been feeling well and took a COVID test that turned out to be positive. This is the third time in two years.  Please bear with me.

 Family member (1) whose whole family had covid last year  was chatting

 with Family member (2).

 

At one point FM(2) makes the statement- " You know, Covid REALLY hit home the other day"

FM(1)- "Why, what happened?" concerned

FM(2)- "Well, the manager at work was diagnosed"

FM(1)- *blinking*  kept mouth shut, walked away.

Does Anyone Know Bubba the owner of What Bubba Knows blog? - Bubba is well

 

 Last night I was scrolling the blog list and realizing I hadn't seen anything from "bubba" for awhile

it was surprising to see a post update in the feed. I stopped over and it looks like his blog

has been compromised with a bunch of way off topic posts every so often.  I sent him an

email hoping to alert him to the situation.  If anyone knows how to get in touch with him

please let him know.  As noted, his own posts have been quiet for some time.

 

Thanks, Irish.  


Bubba reached out and it looks like he cleaned up the mess at his site.


More later, things to do
