DNA editing in human embryos reveals role of fertility "master gene" | Science | The Guardian
The failures of fertility treatments could be down, in part, to a reliance on mouse studies, which until now have been seen as the best way to work out the role of genes during embryonic development – and why things sometimes go wrong. The latest work highlights the shortcomings with this approach, showing that the OCT4 gene appears to play a different role in early human embryos than in mice.

“This is in a way unexpected, because of the dogma that the earliest stages of development are common for all mammalian and even some non-mammalian species,” said Dusko Ilic, reader in stem cell science at King’s College London. “The study is another proof that the findings from experimental animal models cannot be always extrapolated to humans.”

Zerstört der Klimawandel unsere Denkmäler? | Zwischen Spessart & Karwendel | BR - YouTube
- rising temperatures also inside buildings, historic buildings. micro climates in buildings. further - the extreme winds and storms in the future; steep pitched roofs from the past, especially old ones from historic buildings, can't hand that kind of force that is coming. those historic pitched roofs have to be refitted with diagonal ?battens? ... further - historical buildings have to be refitted with climate control systems to keep humidity low during summer days to prevent mould not only on walls, but also on paintings and other stuff inside of historical buildings.. another expense.

Franchise redux: The professionalization of the sharing economy has deep implications | PandoDaily
But for all Airbnb and Uber’s much deserved “disruptive” acclaim, these businesses have older roots than the hype cycle suggests. According to conventional wisdom, Airbnb and Uber enable “regular individuals” to make a few extra bucks renting out an extra bedroom or giving fellow travelers a ride. They unlock a new class of assets, where fellow consumers share in collaborative consumption. In fact, while these businesses nailed rapidly changing consumer preferences  –  buying services at time of usage, rather than owning assets fits the post-recession, Millennial sensibility of the moment –  the supply side of their businesses does not match the narrative. Supply in these marketplaces is increasingly delivered by entrepreneurial, small business owners, not fellow consumers. Uber and Airbnb are best understood as reimagined franchise operations that leverage mobile data, the social graph, and continuous feedback loops to deliver a better consumer experience.

BBC News - Charlotte Church attacks 'sexist' music industry
The music industry has a "culture of demeaning women" that forces stars to sell themselves as sex objects. The business is "a male dominated industry with a juvenile perspective on gender and sexuality" and increasingly wants "sex objects that appear child-like", Church claimed. [...] Sinead O'Connor wrote an open letter to the pop star, warning her not to be exploited by the music business. [...] "Short burst messaging." (Shallow Content with no Context. Cheap. Meaningless. Disappearing in the ether.) + + Look what the entertainment industry did to so many people (ie Germany Gina-Lisa Lohfink & Co + + !!! !!!
