Nobel Intent: Have we had effective anti-malarial drugs all along?

Nobel Intent: Have we had effective anti-malarial drugs all along?

Nobel Intent: Have we had effective anti-malarial drugs all along?

...it will work with complex and poorly understood disease targets. Malaria ranks pretty high up on the scale of complex and poorly understood diseases, ... the majority of the drugs they tested have already been approved by the FDA, meaning they've passed rigorous safety screening, and would be relatively inexpensive to bring to market for a new use.

Nearly 200 drugs were identified that reduced parasite cell division by over 50 percent. The authors focused in on an antihistamine called astemizole, "

SXSW 2006 Panel: Bruce Sterling / The State of the World

Posted 5:05PM March 17, 2006

SXSW Page about this panel

[Introductions. Talk about the lack of a Bruce Sterling party this year.]

Bruce Sterling: This is the most innovative year since the beginning of the web. There's blood in the water -- Google's buying. Bubble 2.0. It's gratifying to see what's happening now. Commons-based peer production is getting legs. Something I was complaining about for years. Flickr is not a copy of anything else. Wikipedia is not a knock-off of anything else.

Historical Documents Regarding Evolution and Evolutionary Theory

Historical Documents Regarding Evolution and Evolutionary Theory

The Religion of Evolution
Minot Judson Savage (1841-1918)

Published in the year +1,876 Gregorian Calendar, this book was one of the first written by a Christian minister regarding evolution and evolutionary theory. As the writer stated in his book:

"One of the results of evolution cannot possibly contradict evolution itself. I am none the less a Christian, then, because I am an evolutionist. I will even say I am a Christian because I am an evolutionist. To justify this position, to trace the progress of religion until it culminates in Christianity, and to show the relation it sustains to those religions that have preceded it, - this is my present purpose."
Savage's wrote that since evolution is an observed fact that cannot be refuted, and since evolutionary theory sucessfully and brilliantly defines and describes the fact of evolution, it is both absurd and injurous to the Body of Christ to not acknowledge the factuality of evolution and the correctness of evolutionary theory. Ther author acknowledged the fact that Christianity itself has evolved from earlier religions, as have ethics and morals and laws.

Anti-Grain Geometry - About the Project

Anti-Grain Geometry (AGG) is an Open Source, free of charge graphic library, written in industrially standard C++. The terms and conditions of use AGG are described on The License page. AGG doesn't depend on any graphic API or technology. Basically, you can think of AGG as of a rendering engine that produces pixel images in memory from some vectorial data. But of course, AGG can do much more than that. The ideas and the philosophy of AGG are:

OK, many people seem to be picking up on Coulter's plagiarism, Karl Mogel picks up on the overt sexism of Coulter's remarks*, but there's far too little discussion of the fact that Coulter's book is a tissue thin collection of lies.
