View Rick Stein's Obituary on delawareonline.com and share memories
"Wilmington - Rick Stein, 71, of Wilmington was reported missing and presumed dead on September 27, 2018 when investigators say the single-engine plane he was piloting, The Northrop, suddenly lost communication with air traffic control and disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Rehoboth Beach. Philadelphia police confirm Stein had been a patient at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital where he was being treated for a rare form of cancer. Hospital spokesman Walter Heisenberg says doctors from Stein's surgical team went to visit him on rounds when they discovered his room was empty. Security footage shows Stein leaving the building at approximately 3:30 Thursday afternoon, but then the video feed mysteriously cuts off. Authorities say they believe Stein took an Uber to the Philadelphia airport where they assume he somehow gained access to the aircraft........."

Terrifying sex organs of male turtles - Scientific American Blog Network
Of the many unlikeable and inaccurate stereotypes maintained about animals in popular consciousness, among the most frustrating is what I term “old man turtle”. This is the idea that turtles (by which I mean, all members of Testudines) are like decrepit, weak, bony little old men housed inside a box. It’s not fair, and it’s not at all accurate. Here we look at just one aspect of turtle anatomy. In keeping with the stupid “old man turtle” idea, popular culture would have it that turtles are weak, flaccid, crappy organisms with dull social lives, stunted and barely functional internal organs and undersized sex organs. Well, wait a goddam minute…

Warning: the following article may be considered unsuitable for viewing by minors.

Believe it or don’t, turtles are horrifically well endowed, and if the thought of learning more about the genitals of these oh-so-surprising reptiles doesn’t appeal to you, look away now. Last warning. Ok, here we go.

Harvard, Stanford, MIT Endowments Invest in Crypto Funds — The Information
Last week, CNBC reported that the Yale University endowment had invested in Andreessen Horowitz’s $300 million crypto fund as well as in Paradigm, a new fund being launched by Matt Huang, a former Sequoia partner, and Fred Ehrsam, the co-founder of Coinbase.
Colleges use endowments to fund financial aid, research and faculty salaries, and investment managers have long faced questions about whether to protect funds by sticking to traditional stocks and bonds or chase returns in alternative investments. Endowments including those of Yale and Harvard were hard-hit during the financial crisis, partly due to their exposure to private equity and real estate.

In case you use a 2018 MacBook Pro on High Sierra that acts ridiculously slow with the fan always on and its battery pretty much useless, make sure to install the 10.13.6 supplemental updates. All fixed. 🖤

Macau continues to crack down on illicit money exchanges - CalvinAyre.com
Macau law enforcement officials have been working hard to clean up the city’s image this year. Gaming-related crime is already down compared to last year and the city continues its efforts to ensure this trend doesn’t stop. In its latest example, police have been out in force, cracking down on illicit money exchanges.

According to Macau’s Judiciary Police, which oversees crime activity related to casinos, police were busy at a number of downtown casinos this past weekend. The casinos were not identified by name, but the force’s acting head of gaming-related crimes, Chan Chong In, indicated that 12 people were taken to the police station in order to have their identities verified. Of those, two were ultimately detained over possible involvement with illicit money exchange services.

Following their downtown visit, police officers then decided to spend some time in Cotai and conducted the same type of police action there on Tuesday. Cotai has seen a number of crackdowns over the past several months – from May to July – to curb illegal money exchanges in the area.

Chan points out that the limited number of detainment shows that there does not exist an “acute” criminal trend in the city. Speaking from the City of Dreams Macau on Tuesday, he said, “Following a series of combatting operations since the beginning of this year, we haven’t really seen that these activities have got more acute,” adding, “The people that were engaged in these activities have not committed more serious criminal acts.”

The Tuesday visit to Cotai by the Judiciary Police was conducted in tandem with Macau’s Unitary Police Service. The two departments led an anti-crime operation and ultimately detained 20 people. The majority of these were apparently from mainland China and 17 of them were detained for allegedly being involved in illicit money exchanges.

Said Chan, “We’ve always been paying close attention to illegal money exchange services and the crimes that stem from it. We will continue to observe the criminal trend and combat these activities.” He warned that the police force will continue to operate similar exercises going forward to ensure that illicit money exchanges don’t spring back up.
