Bearman Cartoons73,859People Who Paid Attention to My July 1 Morning PostThis morning I posted a benign comment with no image wondering if people are engaged in G+ without images.  I said I would share a circle of anyone that commented and surprisingly many did.  OP: https://plus.google.com/103857459148999991693/posts/ThcDtFipGTDSO WHY SHOULD I CARE?You may ask.  I don't recommend ever blindly adding an entire group of people shared in a circle.  However, so many complain about the Ghost town of G+ where engagement is rare.  These are obviously people who are engaged in the platform.  So pick 5-10 and take a look at their profile.  If you like what you see, circle them and tell them I sent you.  If you don't, move on.What I learned- Circle shares aren't dead.  While many have been lost in communities there is still a place for specific, targeted Circle Shares on G+- Some of my commenters still think they are snarkier than me :)2014-07-01 23:04:169952455

insert expletives here.
i was just saying to someone that it sucked to be worried about the new respiratory enterovirus that is making kids super sick, and that there were incidents of whooping cough in the county.... Yep, a letter came home from school today that someone in her school has whooping cough and has been coming to school.

Here is where you say- but isn't your kid vaccinated? and I say YES she is fully vaccinated, but I heard in at least one case a sick kid had been vaccinated, so this may be a slightly new strain.  yay.

Thank goodness K's cough was much better today, or I might have had a freakout.

This link was from earlier in the month.

I bought this kit on impulse when at Stitches with Style in Newark, DE. I don't do a lot of knitting, but I can handle a baby sweater. I hope. I am a little afraid of knitting the buttonhole bands. I may crochet them instead.... I'm about to split the sleeves..... #wipwhenever #knitting

Friday!
I am within reach of my end of year production goal, and not far from the workflow goal!  ahead of schedule!  that means I can relax a tiny bit... 
whatever is afflicting me (cold? allergy? I think cold) it tried to kill me overnight but I managed to survive. I need a new box of tissues up here.  
How is your friday shaping up?!

#mkzreadinglist. The OP's comments are spot on.

This is written in fairly dense academic language, but for those who are interested, it's a valuable read.

(FWIW, as a patient, I have never felt so disempowered as when I was forced to sign an opioid contract -- filled with punitive language and giving my doctor the right to "fire" me as a patient for any number of reasons -- and had to accede to invasive, degrading testing at any time.  If the police aren't allowed to drug-screen at random, why are we handing these rights over to doctors?)

I normally have very good relationships with my doctors (the insurance companies are another story, and I've had the occasional bozo as a doctor, but in the main, they respect me and I respect them, and we treat each other as part of a team whose goal is to maximize my health and functionality.

The pain-management contract is another story -- it's humiliating and stigmatizing, and it automatically sets up a scenario where the pain patient feels anxious and guilty, and the doctor holds all the power over treatment of the patient's pain.

It's a very different dynamic, and it actually leads to unhealthy behaviors (pill-hoarding, making sure you have "enough" medication in your system before each appointment, so that you don't get accused of diverting your medication if you've had a good run of days and haven't taken any, etc.)  

It also gives the doctor the right to force a patient into types of treatment that they don't consent to (many pain clinics force patients to get "trigger-point" steroid injections, which are a huge profit source for clinics and doctors, and are harmful if done repeatedly, particularly to people with connective-tissue disorders.)  And, of course, you always run the risk of getting on the doctor's bad side somehow, and being blacklisted -- once you're on that list, no one will treat you.

And I'm a responsible pain patient -- my goal is to take as little medication as possible (which is why I bought the Cefaly!), I have no interest in recreational use or diversion, I'd actually like to LOWER my number of pills per month, etc.), and if it's this unsettling for me, I can't imagine what it's like for patients who are more intimidated by the medical establishment.

The idea of "signing a contract" may sound benign, but it's a genuine issue to ask a patient to hand over total control of their health to a single doctor, and to be contractually obliged not to see anyone else for pain treatment.  

(During my 11-day migraine, I couldn't reach anyone at the pain clinic who had the authority to tell me it was okay to go to the ER.  My doctor had just left, I hadn't seen the new one yet, messages were left un-returned, the ball got dropped.  And I was in some of the worst pain of my life -- but I didn't want to jeopardize my treatment by going to the ER without permission.)

THAT'S why these contracts are fucked-up -- they take common-sense decisions out of the hands of patients and doctors, and the one-size-fits-all approach winds up treating legitimate patients like criminals.  

I approve of this paper's approach -- individualized medicine and sensible judgment on the part of doctors with regard to risk factors makes much more sense than just forcing "pain contracts," monthly medication-management visits (many of which could be conducted over the phone), and random drug testing on all pain patients, regardless of their diagnosis or behavior.

Something to read with your morning coffee...

The Coffee genome : We don't really think of how coffee is grown. But there is a science and a logic which evolution confers to it.  Coffea canephora, better known as Robusta and its premium cousin _ Arabica_ are some of the most common beans used in making a cup of joe.  The science of Coffee;  chemistry, physics and genetics is fascinating! Here are some of the findings of the Researchers at Buffalo who have sequenced the coffee genome:

Findings : _ Coffee's genome has an extensive collection of genes that code for enzymes involved in caffeine production. Coffee has larger families of genes related to alkaloid and flavonoid compound production than other plants. This contributes to the aroma and bitterness of the beans. There are 23 new genes found exclusively in coffee. They are different than the caffeine-related genes in chocolate, indicating that the ability to produce caffeine evolved at least twice.

How important is coffee? : _ More than 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. The plant is grown on more than 11 million hectares, often in developing countries where it is an important cash crop. "Many people argue it's the most traded commodity after oil," says molecular biologist Professor Robert Henry.

Coffee anyone? : _ The enzymes and biochemical pathway for producing caffeine in coffee are different to those in tea or cacao plants. "The interesting thing is that caffeine synthesis has evolved separately in each of the three plants," says Henry. "It's convergent evolution."_

"Clearly caffeine is a particularly well-designed or biologically effective molecule if it has evolved independently at least three times," he adds. Henry says caffeine is involved in the plant's defences. "Its bitterness might serve as a warning against some predators," he says. The researchers also found genes for disease resistance, and genes for linoleic acid, which play a key role in aroma and flavour of coffee.

#bioinformatics miRNA design

Leukippos - a #synbio   lab in the cloud

Bioengineers develop a toolkit for designing more successful synthetic molecules

by Bjorn Carey

"Ever since Robert Hooke first described cells in 1665, scientists have been trying to figure out what is going on inside. One of the most exciting modern techniques involves injecting cells with synthetic genetic molecules that can passively report on the cell's behavior, or even alter its function.
A new computer model developed by Stanford engineers could not only improve the sensitivity and success of these synthetic molecules, but also make them easier to design in the first place.
The work is detailed in the current issue of Nature Methods.
Typically, scientists have built synthetic molecules through trial and error. This approach has allowed some interesting developments, said Christina Smolke, senior author on the paper and an associate professor of bioengineering at Stanford, but it inhibits forward engineering approaches, which ultimately limits the potential of the tool.
"You start with an idea of what you want to do in the cell, and then you build and iterate on a design over and over until you reach something close to what you want," Smolke said. "As we design and build more sophisticated systems, we will want the ability to efficiently achieve precise quantitative behaviors, and being able to accurately predict relationships between the system inputs and outputs are important to achieving this goal."
The model helps devise synthetic versions of microRNA, or miRNA. In nature, these small strips of genetic code help regulate gene expression. At a basic level, a synthetic miRNA circuit might be designed to measure the level of molecule X being produced by the cell, then decrease the expression of the target gene by Y percent to achieve a desired Z behavior.
Rather than piece together molecules, test the outcome, refine the design and repeat the experiment, Smolke's model solves a series of differential equations that represent the different biochemical steps, rates and parameters you're hoping to measure within the cell, and the action you plan for your molecule to take. Based on these inputs and outputs, the model then recommends a series of molecules and steps to assemble your desired miRNA tool.
The researchers validated the process by designing a synthetic miRNA, from scratch, to monitor activity of a protein in the Wnt signaling pathway. When the concentration of the target protein produced by the Wnt pathway, beta catenin, reached a certain level, the synthetic miRNA would trigger another molecule in the cell that would cause it to fluoresce.
The Wnt pathway is well-studied – it plays a key role in embryonic development, stem cell renewal and cancer progression – so it provided a good standard to test the model against.
"When we're looking at Wnt activation, we're talking about a two- to three-fold increase in production of beta catenin," Smolke said. "That's a relatively small change in concentration and provided a nice test case for the sensitivity of these biosensors. And the nice thing about it is that it's non-invasive, you don't have to break open cells."
The algorithms are ready to be used in the lab for experiments conducted in cell culture and animal models immediately, she said, particularly for the study of cancer or the development of vaccines or stem cell therapies...."

Facing Stiff Odds To Be A Professor

More case studies...

"Imagine a job where about half of all the work is being done by people who are in training. That's, in fact, what happens in the world of biological and medical research.

In the United States, more than 40,000 temporary employees known as postdoctoral research fellows are doing science at a bargain price. And most postdocs are being trained for jobs that don't actually exist.

Academic institutions graduate an overabundance of biomedical Ph.D.s — and this imbalance is only getting worse, as research funding from the National Institutes of Health continues to wither."

"At first, the robot was successful in its task. As a human proxy moved towards the hole, the robot rushed in to push it out of the path of danger. But when the team added a second human proxy rolling toward the hole at the same time, the robot was forced to choose. Sometimes, it managed to save one human while letting the other perish; a few times it even managed to save both. But in 14 out of 33 trials, the robot wasted so much time fretting over its decision that both humans fell into the hole. The work was presented on 2 September at the Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems meeting in Birmingham, UK."
