Administration of a probiotic with peanut oral immunotherapy: A randomized trial. - PubMed - NCBI
Oral immunotherapy (OIT) is a potential treatment for food allergy (also known as desensitisation) that involves administering gradually increasing amounts of food allergen under medical supervision.
The strain of probiotic used in the study was Lactobacillus rhamnosus
It is important that patients and their families are aware that OIT methods are not currently standardised or approved for routine treatment of food allergy globally. There are concerns about a high (or unknown) risk of potential harm in patients with severe food allergy, as well as considerable cost implications.

APOD: 2018 December 2 - The Fairy of Eagle Nebula
The dust sculptures of the Eagle Nebula are evaporating. As powerful starlight whittles away these cool cosmic mountains, the statuesque pillars that remain might be imagined as mythical beasts. Featured here is one of several striking dust pillars of the Eagle Nebula that might be described as a gigantic alien fairy. This fairy, however, is ten light years tall and spews radiation much hotter than common fire. The greater Eagle Nebula, M16, is actually a giant evaporating shell of gas and dust inside of which is a growing cavity filled with a spectacular stellar nursery currently forming an open cluster of stars. This great pillar, which is about 7,000 light years away, will likely evaporate away in about 100,000 years. The featured image in scientifically re-assigned colors was released in 2005 as part of the fifteenth anniversary celebration of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. via NASA

FTC Hearings Exploring Algorithms, Artificial Intelligence, and Predictive Analytics Focus on Notions of Fairness, Transparency and Ethical Uses
During two days of discussions and testimony panelists generally agreed that new regulations in this area would be premature, and that finding the appropriate framework for transparency, fairness and ethics may require society to consider tradeoffs between competing value sets.,The hearings, at Howard University School of Law in Washington, DC, brought together FTC staff, industry, academia and consumer interest organizations to discuss key issues arising from the increasing adoption of algorithms, artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics in society, including:

Panelists discussed the fundamental aspects of algorithms, artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics (hereafter “AI”), how these technologies could impact and influence consumer protection, and emerging regulatory and legal issues associated with the use of these technologies in real-world applications.,For example, panelists agreed that the use of AI may lead to bias in decision-making, including the use of biased data sets (to initially train AI tools or as ongoing data feeds).,In addition, bias in AI may also be tethered to other imperfect sources, such as:

Although panelists agreed that bias in AI exists, several argued that critical to whether the use of AI leads to “biased” results is how we, as society, define fairness.,However, in light of existing consumer protection laws, panelists generally agreed that any new regulation targeted at AI and machine learning is unnecessary at this time.

China excerpts from "Insane Mode: How Elon Musk’s Tesla Sparked an Electric Revolution to End the Age of Oil"
Before we get to the excerpt I have a couple of housekeeping announcements:

On to the excerpt from Insane Mode: How Elon Musk’s Tesla Sparked an Electric Revolution to End the Age of Oil:

You never have to look far to find scenes of change in China, but the sense of dynamism is perhaps nowhere more profound than in the border city of Shenzhen.,There could be no more apt promise for this city in this epoch, but the slogan happens to be under the ownership of BYD Auto, one of the world’s largest sellers of electric cars (the largest, if you count hybrids).,To get to BYD Auto’s headquarters, you have to drive twenty-five miles east from the center of Shenzhen to the industrial suburb of Pingshan, past a dribble of drab manufacturing buildings, bleak apartment complexes with laundry hanging outside the windows, and men selling car seat covers from the side of the highway.,After listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and then acquiring Tsinchuan, Wang plotted a course for BYD to become a leading producer of electric cars and solar power systems—a move that would eventually lead to Warren Buffett, through a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, buying 10 percent of the company for $230 million.,We completed our circuit of the building—strolling past packed parking lots of BYD cars and dozens of the Denza model, an electric crossover utility vehicle that was a product of the company’s joint venture with Daimler—and stepped inside the hexagon.

Seiichi Yamamoto’s ‘Ginga’: Musings from an underground music legend
Seiichi Yamamoto has spent the last four decades playing in bands and releasing experimental music on his own and with others, with his most notable stint being the guitarist in the rock group Boredoms.,“Ginga,” originally released in Japanese in 2009 and translated into English by Kato David Hopkins this year, compiles highlights from that column.,The translation is rounded out with Yamamoto’s own fiction, artwork and photography, but the focus remains on his essays — brief dispatches from Yamamoto mostly about music but also including the odd tangent to topics such as catching bats or applying for credit cards.,Yamamoto’s stories are peppered with a bit of reflection and a knack for great broadsides that also hint at an artistic philosophy (“Anyway I think of it, white noise is vastly more interesting than something like Foreigner”).,But Yamamoto’s column was mostly a dialogue with readers, and a chance to show off how funny and sharp he could be when recalling junk sales at recording studios or trips to Guam.

Submitting to the masters on Onomichi’s Path of Literature
One reason for the decade-long delay in visiting was my own hesitation to delve into the Japanese works of the two most prominent scribes associated with Onomichi: Naoya Shiga (1883-1971) who is still studied in Japanese literature classes and Fumiko Hayashi (1903-51), one of the most popular female writers of her time.,Imbued with the poetic grace of Hayashi’s poems, I was soon enveloped in the cobbled and delightfully sinuous Temple Walk, which led me to novelist Naoya Shiga’s terraced house, where he stayed from 1912 to 1914.,Finally, I arrived at Senkoji temple, where begins the well-trodden yet contemplative literary trail punctuated by boulders of chiseled verse and prose, an artform this calligraphic nation seems to have perfected.,Returning to the path at dawn to watch the sun rise over the Onomichi Channel, I encountered a tanka poem by Jippensha Ikku (author of “Shank’s Mare”), who was inspired enough by the panorama to write:

“The sunlight/ sparkling on the blue sea/ the offing light of a peacock’s tail.”,For many, Onomichi’s Path of Literature is just a short, 1-kilometer walking trail, but for me it was a fine introduction to the way of Japanese literature.
