For the past few years, Annabelle Singer and her collaborators have been using flickering lights and sound to treat mouse models of Alzheimer's disease, and they've seen some dramatic results.Now they have results from the first human feasibility study of the flicker treatment, and they're promising."We looked at safety, tolerance, and adherence, and several different biological outcomes, and the results were excellent—better than we expected," says Singer, assistant professor in the biomedical ...

Rod Emory is working on a hard core off-road Porsche Macan Baja

Screenshot: @rodemory on Instagram It seems like off-road Porsches are all the rage these days. We’ve seen totally rad Cayennes from E-Motion Engineering, awesome off-roading in Moab, and even Porsche themselves are getting in on the Cayenne craze. And that’s to say nothing of the safari 911 trend that has been blowing up in this community for the last decade. The next logical progression for Porsche fanatics looking to get deep into the dirt is to start fiddling with Macans. The compact crosso...

Silent Alarm: The first custom LiveWire, via JVB-moto

It’s been a couple of years since Harley-Davidson revealed the LiveWire and sent shockwaves through the industry. It was the first battery-powered sportbike from a major OEM, and it still has no competition. Milwaukee positioned (and priced) the LiveWire as a halo product, so column inches have been high and sales low. That also means there have been no significant customs based on the LiveWire, as far as we can tell. There’s been the odd paint job, and the Long Way Up bikes were certainly mo...

Trust No AI? : Updating the Duty of Competence for the Modern Lawyer

The fear of being replaced by “robots” is not unique to our profession. Automation is predicted to impact even highly skilled workers. But the legal profession is well placed to ride the waves of artificially intelligent systems with confidence rather than panic.[1] We should not be concerned about being replaced—it should be our A.I. assistants that should concern us, particularly those marketed as case or litigation prediction tools. The legal profession should embrace AI tools that improve ef...

SARS-CoV-2 may join the ranks of mild cold-causing coronaviruses

What is the endgame for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that is causing worldwide devastation? If it becomes endemic -- circulating in the general population -- and most people are exposed in childhood, SARS-CoV-2 may join the ranks of mild cold-causing coronaviruses that currently circulate in humans, according to a model developed by Emory and Penn State scientists.

17 ways to challenge your hustle and creativity during the pandemic

It's okay to start off small when pushing your limits. Tempura/Getty Images The pandemic has been a stressful time, but it's also provided many of us the opportunity to explore new things that challenge and excite us.  When starting a new hobby, it's good to start small: Add a new step to your daily routine, try a new restaurant, or focus on 'input' — or dedicating time to yourself — activities. Once you develop confidence in these goals, you can break out of your comfort zone and push...

Why flu vaccines only last a year

Now experts are warning of a twindemic: the potential for a bad flu season combined with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.It all comes down to preparation.T...

Lung radiation shows promise for COVID-19 pneumonia; smoking raises risks

A low dose of radiation to the lungs of COVID-19 pneumonia patients can help them recover more quickly, a small study suggests. Doctors at Emory University in Atlanta treated 10 such patients with lung radiation and compared them to 10 patients of similar ages who received usual care, without radiation. The radiation group was "a little older, a little sicker, and their lungs were a little more damaged ... but despite that we saw a strong signal of efficacy," Emory's Dr. Mohammad Khan told Reu...
