Bio-Path Holdings Liposomal Delivery Technology Achieves Major Milestone in Development of Antisense Therapeutics





We didnt need to know anything about analog or digital just so long as Larry did. Born in Carrollton, Mo., Stephens grew up on a farm. He served in the Air Force from 1960 to 1968 as a communications specialist before joining the AP. He earned praise during his career from colleagues, supervisors and AP members all extolling his dedication, loyalty and drive. In 1993, AP President Lou Boccardi applauded Stephens on his 25 years with the company, telling Stephens that his name has become a synonym for getting it done, on time and with a smile for the member. In 1999, Stephens won the companys Gramling Spirit Award. He was honored for his three decades of service as the backbone of AP communications in Washington. A former AP Washington bureau chief, Sandy Johnson, recalled Stephens standing nearby each election night, just out of sight, with his arms crossed and poised to pounce in the event of any technological mishap. Because of Larrys diligence and IT skills, the technology never let us down, said Johnson. I always felt better knowing he was there an angel on our shoulders. Communications colleagues remembered him for his willingness to mentor and guide each new crop of AP technology staffers. He loved to teach the young techs, said Mark Olchowy, deputy director of support in Washington. He would teach anything to anybody who asked. Outside of family and work, Stephens enjoyed fishing in a creek off the Potomac River and during annual trips to Canada.

SurePure's Photopurification Technology Demonstrates Sustainable Benefits to the Brewing Industry Through its Collaboration with SAB Miller





Cyclospora is a parasite that causes stomach illness. Four-hundred-sixty-seven cases have been reported in 16 states -- more than half in Iowa and Nebraska. The cases in those two states were traced to tainted salad from Mexico, but the source in the other states has not been determined, because the researchers don't have the right tools. We spoke with the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. DR. JON LAPOOK: How do you know that the parasite that's in Iowa and Nebraska is the same that's in the other states? Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control / CBS News DR. THOMAS FRIEDEN: We don't know that all the parasites are the same. Unless we can really track it down and understand it better, we can't figure out where it's coming from, and we may not be able to prevent as well as we could otherwise.

CorSource Technology Group Expands Technical Staffing Team





Mattek-Sands has been using the glasses in practice to help her improve. (Photo: Google) In recent months, players such as Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the USA have been testing out Google glasses. None of these devices has been used in a professional match yet. "We were clear that there was an increasing amount of this data," Miller says. "Analyzing it used to take a long time. Now you have the ability to get that information back almost in real time." Different sports take different approaches to encroaching technologies. In Major League Baseball, players cannot retire to the batting cage and use video to analyze their swing during games. National Football League coaches are not permitted to use tablets to monitor defensive or offensive schemes. PGA Tour golfers cannot deploy GPS technology to measure distance.

Arsene Wenger raises concerns about EPL's goal-line technology





The values promoted by Apple are part of the Faustian bargain of technology, which both giveth and taketh away. Jobs Zen master Kobun Chino told him that he could keep in touch with his spiritual side while running a business. So in true Zen fashion, Jobs avoided thinking of technology and spirituality in dualistic terms. But what really set him apart was his ability to educate the public about personal computing in both practical and mythic ways. The iconography of the Apple computer company, the advertisements, and the device screens of the Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, and iPad are visual expressions of Jobs imaginative marriage of spiritual science and modern technology. Apple Ads as Parables Technology ads provide parables and proverbs for navigating the complexities of the new technological order. They instruct the consumer on how to live the good life in the technological age. Like all advertising, Apples ads perform a vital educational function in consumer society. The advertisements are allegorical, rhetorical attempts to domesticate foreign and abstract concepts, making them accessible and attractive to everyday adherents. In fact, they resemble medieval morality plays in their personification of good (Mac) and evil (PC). As such, the ads contain a moral or, more explicitly, they propose a morality customized for the conditions of the age. Brett Robinson Brett T.

"What if there are two decisions very close?'' Wenger, who has championed technology for years, responded with a more precise scenario. "The ball goes in, goes out and somebody makes a foul, and the guy wants to kick it in again,'' he said. "The referee decides in that fraction of a second to give a foul for the defender. And then suddenly it appears to be a goal and he's already decided it's a foul for the defender.'' There isn't a precise answer yet. "While it's probably going to be a small number of incidents like this, it's important we are prepared for these situations and this is what our session on Monday is going to be all about,'' Taylor said. Despite his challenging manner under the glare of the cameras, Wenger was keen to underscore his delight that technology has arrived in football to bring "justice'' to the decision-making. And he's hoping that the cameras could one day be used to rule on more than just goal-line decisions. The Premier League's attempts to introduce technology were rebuffed for years by FIFA until President Sepp Blatter reversed his opposition after England midfielder Frank Lampard was denied an obvious goal at the 2010 World Cup. FIFA is deploying GoalControl-4D, a similar system, at the World Cup in Brazil next year after it was tested at the Confederations Cup recently.
