Potential target for treating many cancers found within GLI1 gene - Eureka Alert 19 hours ago

    (Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago) Scientists from the Stanley Manne Children's Research Institute at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago found that a region within the DNA of the cancer-promoting GLI1 gene is directly responsible for regulating this gene's expression. These findings, published in the journal Stem Cells, imply that this region within GLI1 could potentially be targeted as cancer treatment, since turning off GLI1 would interrupt excessive cell division characteristic of cancer.

Become one of NASA’s Next Generation of Scientists - NASA 4 hours ago

    Ask any scientist or researcher when they first became interested in their profession, and many will say it was while they were in high school. NASA is capitalizing on this by growing the nation’s next generation of scientists while they are rising juniors and seniors. GeneLab for High Schools, or GL4HS, is an intensive four-week program, sponsored by NASA’s Biological and Physical Sciences Division and managed by the agency’s Ames Research Center.Where else in the world would students have the opportunity to learn about such topics as space biology omics-based research, bioinformatics, computational biology methods, and team experiments, while acquiring advanced proposal writing and oral presentation skills, all taught by university professors, industry experts, and past and present astronauts?“This is a competitive program,” notes Sigrid Reinsch, the director of education and outreach for NASA’s Space Biology Program. “GL4HS is a great opportunity for students of various backgrounds to learn about space biology and engage with their peers across the country. Students are chosen based on their academic records, reference letters, and their personal statements. We want them to tell us why they want to enroll, why they’re interested in advanced biology, and how the program may contribute to their career goals, as opposed to someone who’s just seeking to get another notch on their college application.”Once enrolled, students form teams and pick topics to study and present. The whimsy of their team names belies the heady biology they’ll present at the end of the course. Some examples from the 2020 Class:Team The Migh-T Cells: The Effects of Spaceflight-induced Oxidative Stress on Apoptotic Pathways and Aging in the Murine Thymus;Team Epic-Dermis: Microgravity Effects on Dermal Thickness: An Investigation into Collagen Thickness;Team The Bronchial Bros: Blood Clots in the Lung: The Role of Spaceflight in Altering Vascular Tone and Increasing Risk of Thrombosis;Team Liveration: The Role of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinase 4 (Pdk4) in Liver Lipotoxic and Repair Pathways during Spaceflight; and,Team The Gutsy Girls: The Effects of Spaceflight on Innate Immunity of the Gut: The Role of Angiopoietin-4The program’s lead instructor is Elizabeth Blaber of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, who founded the program when she worked at Ames. One of her observations is what her students say they get out of the program: “Yes, they learn a lot of content, a lot of biology, but what they really rave about is the people they get to meet. All the different scientists, the astronauts, all of them with different backgrounds, and all of them willing to share their experiences with the students. It’s almost like a networking opportunity for their future careers.”When GeneLab for High Schools began, it was an in-person program whose enrollment was confined primarily to students in the San Francisco Bay Area – those who could commute to Ames on a daily basis. The pandemic changed that, and the 2020 program was held virtually. The silver lining was the program could become more inclusive. In fact, last year’s class was composed of 15 students from diverse backgrounds in five states: California, Illinois, Colorado, Virginia and Texas. In addition, four biology instructors were selected to attend the program and learn how course components could be implemented in their classrooms. The program will continue to be virtual for 2021, and only a computer and internet access is needed for students and teachers to participate.Samrawit Gebre is the deputy project manager for the GeneLab Data System at NASA. She sums up the experience students get from the program this way: “It’s fun. It’s hard. You get to network with astronauts. You learn presentation skills you’ll use for the rest of your life. And you’re taught by some of the most amazing teachers in the country. When I explain the program to other scientists, the most common response I get is: ‘I wish this program had been around when I was in high school.’ That says a lot.”Student applications to the 2021 GeneLab program this summer will be accepted until March 1, 2021, and can be found here: https://gl4hsapp.com.Teachers who wish to attend this program are also invited to apply here:arc-gl4hs@mail.nasa.gov.The GeneLab for High Schools program is proudly supported by NASA’s Biological and Physical Sciences (BPS) Division as part of its mission to pioneer scientific discovery and enable exploration.

    Both Nvidia and AMD switched from blower-style to axial-fan coolers for their in-house reference cards in recent years, and it was a good decision. Axial designs offer better cooling performance and lower noise levels in the single GPU setup used by much gamers. But blower-style coolers remain popular in workstations that use GeForce graphics cards for getting things done, leading Nvidia partners like Asus and MSI to release blower-style GeForce RTX 3090 editions to satisfy those professional needs. There’s just one problem: All those RTX 3090 blower cards are disappearing.Videocardz found that not one, not two, but five different custom RTX 3090 blower cards have been scrubbed from their vendors’ respective websites: the Emtek GeForce RTX 3090 24GB Blower Edition, the Asus GeForce RTX 3090 24GB Turbo, the Galax GeForce RTX 3090 24GB Classic, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3090 24GB Turbo, and the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 24GB Aero.To read this article in full, please click here

Intel 670p SSD review: Faster where it matters - PC World 10 hours ago

    It’s glad tidings that the Intel 670p SSD finally makes 4-bit QLC NAND perform well enough to compete with TLC NVMe drives. The drive had no issues with synthetic benchmarks and even managed a livable pace when it ran out of secondary cache—about three times what its predecessor, the 660p, managed. Now if the company could just explain the unusually low TBW ratings, we’d be all good.This review is part of our ongoing roundup of the best SSDs. Go there for information on competing drives and how we tested them. To read this article in full, please click here

Intel's new 670p SSD is tuned for the 'real world' - PC World 10 hours ago

    Intel’s newly released 670p M.2 NVMe SSD will offer better performance for “real world” usage loads that regular nerds care about, the company said on Monday. If that promise holds true, this new drive could wind up on our list of the best SSDs.The Intel 670p is built on 4th-gen, 144-layer quad-level cell (QLC) NAND that increases the density over the previous 96-layer QLC by 50 percent. Besides the enhanced density, the drive features an updated controller and firmware, along with an improved Dynamic SLC caching algorithm that writes data using faster single-bit storage as much as possible. Together, the advancements should give the Intel 670p an advantage over competing QLC drives on low queue depth workloads.To read this article in full, please click here

How to create strong, secure passwords by learning how to crack them - PC World 17 hours ago

    Create stronger, more secure passwords: We are nagged to do it all the time, but few of us actually make the effort. Meanwhile, passwords continue to be stolen, leaked, and cracked on a regular basis. So this time we’re hoping to get your attention by looking at it from the attacker’s side! We'll show you how passwords are cracked and even how to do it yourself, so you can see exactly why a strong password matters.As our brief foray with a cracking tool will show you, your only protection against a determined password-cracker is—you guessed it—a long, complex string of 10 or more characters. Anything shorter, let alone simpler, is too easy to crack. Know that, and suddenly using a password manager looks a lot easier than trying to create passwords all by yourself.To read this article in full, please click here
