Despite its discovery more than 60 years ago, researchers still struggle to inhibit its mutated form--earning its reputation as "undruggable."Yet, the hunt for an Achilles' heel continues, as cancers driven by KRAS mutations are both common and deadly.Now, scientists from Sanford Burnham Prebys and PHusis Therapeutics have shown that a compound called PHT-7.3 shrinks KRAS-driven tumors in mice."Researchers have successfully developed personalized therapies for other mutations known to drive cancer growth, such as EGFR and BRAF.However, KRAS has remained infamously elusive," says Garth Powis, D.Phil, senior author of the paper, director of Sanford Burnham Prebys' NCI-designated Cancer Center and scientific co-founder and adviser to PHusis Therapeutics.If it becomes mutated, it can get stuck in the "always on" conformation, leading to the uncontrolled cellular growth that causes cancer.
A poorly chosen diet can effectively increase its level.Follow a diet rich in fruit and vegetables.Of course, there is no need to worry when this number is slightly abnormal, but the condition above 250 mg/dl should be worrying.The most common are light yellow convex spots, which appear particularly in the corners of the eyes, but also on the knees, Achilles tendons and elbows.Dietary fiber for high cholesterolThe action of fiber is extremely important for the proper level of cholesterol, effectively lowers it and is excellent and helpful in the treatment of atherosclerosis and diabetes, such properties are not known to everyone.
The Google Pixel 3a is the biggest bargain I’ve seen in years.Here’s a phone that offers up nearly everything that’s good about the Pixel 3 for half the price.Google even brought the headphone jack back and improved battery life – the Pixel 3’s Achilles’ heel.But everyone else should be excited at the prospect of an amazing camera packed with clever A.I.features, the slickest Android software around, and an OLED screen in a phone this price.It’s also timed perfectly to slot into a segment of the market that’s mostly filled with less familiar Chinese brands and sub-par devices from the big boys.
GCHQ U-turns, wants Joe Public onside as well as industryCyber UK 2019 GCHQ's director-general has called for more public trust in the controversial British spy agency.Jeremy Fleming told the Cyber UK conference in Glasgow this morning that his agency "must have the legal, ethical and regulatory regimes to foster public trust, without which we just don't have a licence to operate in cyberspace".As well as the expected boilerplate about extending UK.gov's surveillance and control of the internet in order to make Britain the "safest place in the world" online, Fleming also betrayed the eavesdropping agency's Achilles' heel: its public image.In the post-Snowden world, even spies and related government agencies have recognised that without at least a base of public support for their aims, the wider tech industry will continue to shut them out by implementing ever more sophisticated levels of encryption in consumer-grade products.Continuing a low-key theme that has been growing over the past few years, he also called for more public acknowledgement of GCHQ's own hacking capabilities, saying the spy agency "has to have the ability in accordance with international law to project cyber power, to disrupt, deny or degrade our adversaries".

Shazam tells the story of a boy who makes a radical transformation when he says a magic word.Which is fitting, as Shazam marks the point where DC's superhero movies complete their own transformation.Our hero, Billy Batson, is a teen tearaway escaping from foster homes and running rings around the police.He has a reason for not trusting anyone, even when he winds up in a group foster home that makes The Brady Bunch look like a crack house.But his problems are forgotten when he's transported to a mysterious cave where an ancient wizard zaps him with magic powers.At the uttering of a magic word, Billy becomes the magical hero Shazam, imbued with the powers of Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury.
Bragi, the company that has arguably done the most innovative work in the truly wireless earbud space, has decided to exit the hardware business, having sold its product business to “a third-party buyer” in March, according to a report by Wareable.com.The German startup gained an immediate fan following from its Kickstarter debut in 2015, which introduced the Dash, a set of truly wireless earbuds with grand ambitions.Not content to simply create a good-sounding set of Bluetooth buds, Bragi embedded a host of sensors and chips into the Dash, 4GB of onboard memory, and made the whole thing water resistant.Though not cheap at $300, the Dash was more capable back in 2015 than the latest version of the AirPods are today.Unfortunately, Bragi’s huge scope for the Dash became its Achilles’ heel, and the product suffered from poor wireless connections and had a frustratingly complex set of touch-based controls.Still, the campaign’s success proved that the company was on to something — the idea that wireless earbuds could be much more than a platform for audio — and continued to work on the notion of “hearables” as a new category of smart, A.I.-driven tech.

That is why there are scientists all over the world are hard at work at creating computing with a radically different foundation: the operations known as quantum mechanics, the weird behavior that underlies the reality that we experience every day.You may find a lot of this on tellingly titled blogs like Next Big Future where for instance in the outlook for 2018-2028 it is simply stated: “Artificial Intelligence and quantum computers will transform IT and logistics.”For instance, in considering the switches for a lighting system it is a convenient fiction that each switch must be definitely on or definitely off.There must be intermediate positions, but for most purposes we can forget about them.They fake real numbers with representing them as exponentiation, using integers as a base and integers as an exponent.The true story about quantum computing goes like this (inspired by and sometimes paraphrasing writings by Scott Aaronson; see here, here, here and here).

If you want to know how Shazam is going to be different from the DC Entertainment films that preceded it, you need only reference two scenes: One in which the hero fights the bad guy in a toy store filled with DC superhero merch, and another where a big fight takes place at a festive winter carnival, complete with a giant Ferris wheel and dozens of games.“I like to compare it to ‘80s movies, like Goonies, Ghostbusters, and Back to the Future,” said director David F. Sandberg on the film’s Toronto set.Like Justice League, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad, Shazam is 100 per cent set in the DC movie universe.However, hewing closer to Wonder Woman or Aquaman, it’s going to feel like a standalone movie with its own mythology and tone.Similar to the DC Comics story, the hero in the film is 14-year-old Billy Batson (played by Asher Angel), chosen by an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou) to be his champion and possess all the power of Shazam (the beings Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury).The movie has a young cast, is filled with humour, and really, only has one darkly lit set (the crucial Rock of Eternity where Billy meets the Wizard).

The latest version of the XPS 13 finally introduces that fix.Doing it required years of work and forced Dell to consider many solutions, including a smartphone-like notch.He’s been the Product Manager for the XPS clamshells at Dell since before the InfinityEdge bezels were first introduced.Obviously, thin bezels seemed like the smart thing to do.Squeezing a camera back in the top bezel wasn’t a matter of rearranging parts.That’s why shrinking the camera wasn’t the first option — and we should all be glad Dell didn’t choose of the alternatives that were considered.
From innovative payment solutions, to those entirely new shopping holidays, these titans are reimaging retail, creating a frictionless shopping experience from any device for their customers, anywhere and any time – not just during the holidays.As business of all sizes invest in these technologies, young brands will have a chance to compete on the same playing field as multi-billion-dollar companies.In recent years, we’ve seen retailers steer away from "appealing to the masses" and instead focus on hyper-specialization for niche markets.Today, small businesses again have the opportunity to leapfrog their larger competitors by quickly implementing technology to enable further personalization, without having to undergo the lengthy, complicated transformation processes that are often the Achilles' heel of large retailers.In 2019, the shift to mobile shopping will only continue to accelerate year-round, as more retailers establish their own applications for mobile-friendly shopping experiences.In this increasingly on-the-go environment, it’s more important than ever to not only create a compelling digital storefront, but also ensure that these offerings are seamlessly integrated across all platforms -- whether in-store or online.
According to the financial sector on Monday, four of the nine subsidiaries of Nonghyup Finance will expire at the end of the year, including NH Nonghyup Bank, Nonghyup Life Insurance, Nonghyup Insurance, and Nonghyup Capital.Among them, Lee Dae-hoon, president of Nonghyup Bank, is most likely to serve a second term.Although Oh Byeong-gwan, president of Nonghyup Sonbo, is likely to serve a second term after just one year, some say that he may move to another affiliate depending on the사다리사이트 intention of Nonghyup Financial Group Chairman Kim Kwang-soo.Nonghyup Capital President Ko Tae-soon has mixed views.Nonghyup Capital posted 41.6 billion won in net profit in the third quarter, up 45 percent from last year, but some are saying that it did not improve its constitution once again.The Achilles' heel is that the performance of Nonghyup Life Insurance Co., Ltd. has deteriorated since then.The net profit of Nonghyup Life Insurance Co. fell to 85.4 billion won last year and stayed at 26.8 billion won until the third quarter.The committee consists of five outside directors, including Lee Joon-haeng, a professor at Seoul Women's University, Lee Ki-yeon, a professor at Sungkyunkwan University, and Jeong Byeong-wook, a vice president of Nonghyup Financial Group Lee Gang-shin, and Yoo Nam-young, a member of the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation.Lee`s term ends at the end of the year, with Nonghyup Financial Holding holding a meeting with its board of directors and shareholders on the 10th and appointing Choi Chang-soo, the senior vice president of Nonghyup Bank, as Lee`s successor.That is why Lee's move is also a matter of concern."Although this year's performance of Nonghyup will not be achieved through a large-scale replacement of CEOs, it is highly likely that some CEOs who are deemed to lack expertise will be replaced as Chairman Kim Kwang-soo has repeatedly announced that he will emphasize their expertise in personnel management at the end of this year."
If you ask people who are relentless Bitcoin cheerleaders about what they think is the cryptocurrency’s Achilles heel, they might proffer – hesitatingly, reluctantly – that the whole thing is stymied by only being able to handle, like, seven transactions per second.A bunch of crypto and blockchain boffins today revealed they’ve secured US$35 million in series A funding from big-name investors to solve that issue.But just because this involves the term “transactions,” it doesn’t mean that the new system is all about turning Bitcoin into a proper currency that people actually spend.“I think it will have a greater impact on the applications of smart contracts – or how people will use smart contracts,” says Conflux co-founder Fan Long.Referring to agreements that are processed on a blockchain, smart contracts are used “mostly for ICOs, plus gambling games,” he says, adding that “95 percent are in these two categories.”So once Conflux rolls out to blockchain developers, Fan explains, it will be able to handle more data, allowing smart contracts to cover a lot more areas.
Like this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, you can get the Suaoki Portable 150W Power Station with dual 110V AC outlets for $99.53 with promo code 7VH5OYT6.It previously sold for $140, currently runs $126 and was $106 the last time I mentioned it.You could power, say, a laptop, a fan, even a CPAP machine.It also has four USB ports (one of them QuickCharge 3.0-compatible for phones that support that fast-charge option) and four DC outputs, the latter good for powering things that would normally run on a car's cigarette lighter.Also of note: Suaoki backs this with an 18-month warranty.The Achilles' Heel of any mobile charger is the need to keep that charger charged -- not always easy when you're camping, boating or otherwise disconnected from electricity.
Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have engineered an antiviral peptide that exploits the Zika virus at its Achilles' heel - the viral membrane - hence stopping the virus from causing severe infections.This new method of attacking the viral membrane focuses on directly stopping Zika virus particles rather than preventing the replication of new virus particles, and can potentially work against a wide range of membrane-enveloped viruses.When administered in Zika-infected mice in the lab, the engineered peptide drug (a compound consisting of amino acids) reduced disease symptoms and the number of deaths.The research team led by NTU Singapore's Associate Professor Nam-Joon Cho published their findings in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Materials on 22 October 2018.Since then, NTU scientists have studied how antiviral peptides can create pores that form in membranes made up of two layers of lipids (a component of fats)."The exciting antiviral results validate the potential of this innovative therapeutic strategy and are further enhanced by the engineered peptide's ability to cross the blood-brain barrier," said Jeffrey S. Glenn, a Professor of Medicine and Microbiology & Immunology at Stanford University, who is not part of the study.
