Rwanda’s game changing coronavirus test
2020-07-12T00:13:32Z via NavierStokesApp To: Public
"Rwanda’s game changing coronavirus test"
African scientists have developed a reliable, quick and cheap testing method which could be used by worldwide as the basis for mass testing programmes. The method, which produces highly accurate results, is built around mathematical algorithms developed at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Kigali. We speak to Neil Turok who founded the institute, Leon Mutesa Professor of human genetics on the government coronavirus task force, and Wilfred Ndifon, the mathematical biologist who devised the algorithm. The virus is mutating as it spreads, but what does this mean? There is particular concern over changes to the spike protein, part of the virus needed to enter human cells. Jeremy Luban has been analysing this mechanism. So far he says ongoing genetic changes seem unlikely to impact on the effectiveness of treatments for Covid -19. And Heatwaves are increasing, particularly in tropical regions, that’s the finding of a new analysis by climate scientist Sarah Perkins – Kirkpatrick. Worms are not the cutest of creatures. They’re slimy, often associated with death and tend to bring on feelings of disgust in many of us. But listener Dinesh thinks they’re underrated and wants to know whether earthworms could be the key to our planet’s future agricultural success? He’s an organic farmer in India’s Tamil Nadu province who grows these annelids to add to the soil, and he wants Crowdscience to find out exactly what they’re doing. Anand Jagatia dons his gardening gloves and digs the dirt on these remarkable creatures, discovering how they can help improve soil quality, prevent fields from becoming waterlogged, and improve microbial numbers, all of which has the potential to increase crop yield. But he also investigates the so-called ‘earthworm dilemma’ and the idea that in some parts of the world, boreal forest worms are releasing carbon back into the atmosphere, which could have dangerous consequences for climate change.

"A fast moving megatrial for coronavirus treatments, and transferring the benefits of exercise by transferring blood"
Contributing correspondent Kai Kupferschmidt talks with host Sarah Crespi about the success of a fast moving megatrial for coronavirus treatments. The United Kingdom’s Recovery (Randomized Evaluation of COVID-19 Therapy) trial has enrolled more than 12,000 hospitalized coronavirus patients since early March and has released important recommendations that were quickly taken up by doctors and scientists around the world. Kupferschmidt discusses why such a large study is necessary and why other large drug trials like the World Health Organization’s Solidarity trial are lagging behind. Read Science’s coronavirus coverage. Also this week, producer Meagan Cantwell talks with Saul Villeda, a professor in the Department of Anatomy at the University of California, San Francisco, about transferring the beneficial effects of exercise on the brain from an active mouse to a sedentary mouse by transferring their blood.

"TWiT News 358: Google Smart Home Virtual Summit"
"Hey Google" Smart Home Summit
Google hosted this virtual smart home IoT conference for developers, their first after canceling Google I/O and other events. TWiT's Smart Tech Today hosts Mikah Sargent and Matthew Cassinelli gave color commentary. The event was not quite the professionally-produced affair that Apple and Microsoft gave us at their developer keynotes earlier this year - it seemed more like a hastily-arranged Zoom call.
- After a 15-minute delay, Vlad Serban, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for Scale at Google, started things off.
- Phillip Klimke, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for Security at Google, discussed security.
- Tasnoba Nusrat, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for Comfort and Control at Google, talked about controlling energy management devices.
- Katelyn Mason, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for SHED at Google, introduced Google's home entertainment devices.
- Alessandro Germano, the Head of Business Development for Latin America and Bianca Waclawek, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for LATAM at Google, focused on the importance of developing relationships in Latin America.
The main keynote featured Michele Turner, Director of Product Management for Google Smart Home Ecosystem Devices. She quickly went through several IoT topics:
- New Google Smart Home Ecosystem devices and routines
- Gentle Sleep and Wake
- Android 11 will have dedicated IOT controls
- New security controls for IoT devices
- More controls for state reporting
- New Local Home SDK with improved controls, smart home logs, statistics, and analytics
- The transition from "Works with Nest" to "Works with Google Assistant"
- More "Home and Away" routines and custom routines for partners
- With Project Connected Home Over IP, Google is working with Amazon, Apple, and Zigbee to develop an open standard for IoT based on Internet Protocol
