The rise and fall of Theranos, the blood-testing startup that went from Silicon Valley darling to facing fraud charges

Theranos, the blood-testing startup once valued at $9 billion, has fallen far from grace. Its former CEO and founder Elizabeth Holmes faces criminal charges stemming from allegations that she and former Theranos president Sunny Balwani engaged in a scheme to defraud investors.  First founded in 2003 by a 19-year-old Holmes, here are the events that contributed to the rise, the fall, the pivot, and now criminal charges facing Theranos and its founder. Theranos is the focus of "The Inventor...

The Stanford professor who rejected one of Elizabeth Holmes' early ideas explains what it was like to watch the rise and fall of Theranos

Dr. Phyllis Gardner, a Stanford Medical School professor, was one of the earliest people to be skeptical of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes. Gardner had rejected one of Holmes' early ideas for a patch that could deploy antibiotics.  Gardner has followed along with Holmes and Theranos since then and raised her concerns to reporters including The Wall Street Journal's John Carreyrou, who quoted her in his bombshell piece questioning how well the company's blood-testing technology worked.   But...

Drought, schmrought, water experts already fret the next dry year and still preach conservation

You might think every water manager in the Golden State is sleeping soundly these days. L.A. rainfall is 158 percent of average. Ten of the 12 state reservoirs are filled to more than 100 percent of their historical average for mid-March — before the all-important snowpack which stands at 152 percent of normal has melted.

Denver Post Yanks Gardner Endorsement After His National Emergency Capitulation

The editorial board for the Denver Post rescinded its 2014 endorsement of Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) Thursday after the senator sided with President Donald Trump on the national emergency declaration. “Gardner has been too busy walking a political tightrope to be a leader,” the board writes. “He has become precisely what we said in our endorsement he would not be: ‘a political time-server interested only in professional security.’” “These are extraordinary times,” it continues. “This is a bogus...

Vulnerable 2020 Senate Republicans Stick With Trump On Border Declaration

A dozen Senate Republicans voted to end President Trump’s emergency declaration on Thursday. But those with the most to lose from Trump’s unpopularity stood by their man. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was the only one of the Senate Republicans who face potentially tough 2020 reelection races broke with Trump on the vote. Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Martha McSally (R-AZ), Thom Tillis (R-NC), David Perdue (R-GA), John Cornyn (R-TX) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) all voted to protect his emergency declaration....

Your Career on Trump

12 Republicans broke with the President in this border emergency vote. But what jumps out to me is that Cory Gardner, almost certainly the most vulnerable Republican in 2020, voted for Trump. Tom Tillis of North Carolina did too, though he’s in a much better position for reelection than Gardner. He even penned an oped opposing the President on this before flipping. Gardner’s decision illustrates a core principle of Trump Republicanism. Even in cases where a vote is clearly against public opin...

Lawsuit Claims New Hampshire Law Unconstitutionally Targets Student Voting

The ACLU is challenging a New Hampshire law it alleges is a backdoor way of making registering to vote more burdensome for college students, low income people and others in the state. The federal lawsuit filed Wednesday on behalf of college students in New Hampshire is the latest salvo in a long-running battle over student voting in the state. For years, Republicans have complained that any tight Democratic wins in the state — including Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R) narrow loss in 2016 — were the r...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: 7 Short Book Reviews

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone is ready to face the week, whether you're working, vacationing, or somewhere in between. I'm grateful to have a regular workweek ahead of me and am hoping to have the time to catch up on reading, straighten the house, and relax with some pleasure reading (or listening) Since I last wrote about the books I'm reading, we've gone through the polar vortex, had some crazy warm days, fierce winds, and now we're on the brink of another snow storm.

Amateur radio in the news: Navy techs get ham licenses, Canadian ham plates stolen

This first story has gotten a lot of attention on the internet. I like it because, even though we may not be as necessary or useful for emergency communications these days, it recognizes the value of amateur radio  in giving hams practical experience with RF. And, that experience does make them better engineers and software developers……Dan Can learning ham radio make for better engineers and software developers? When a group of Navy engineers and software developers took time away from thei...

Don’t forget about the colossal Himalayan glaciers. They’re rapidly vanishing, too.

The Himalayas pierce the sky. But they've been overshadowed.  The accelerated melting in the Arctic — the fastest warming region on Earth — and the Antarctic — home to the largest ice sheets on the planet — certainly demand widespread scientific and media attention. Yet beyond the continually grim news from the north and south poles is the melting of the "third pole," known as the Hindu Kush Himalaya region.

I do not believe a lot of the broad conspiracy things, but for some reason the bee thing has a hold of me in a giant way. I watched way too many documentaries. I coupled it with anecdotal information from friends, and I was off and running. A friend owns an orchard, and they have had to import bees annually for 5 years. I have NO IDEA what that means, or how that works, but man it sounds bad. Our local Master Gardner program has had a lot of programming around pollinators. So I have my hom...

Gardner Intends To Break With GOP, Vote To Reopen Gov’t Without Wall Money

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) intends to buck his party and vote for a clean funding bill without wall money, according to a Denver Post editorial. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is finally allowing two bills to the floor on Thursday, one of which would reopen the government until February 8 and keep border funding at current levels. Gardner is also reportedly supporting a measure to allow federal workers to collect their paychecks even if the shutdown continues. That legislation woul...

Nicolas Cage Will Encounter H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘The Colour Out of Space’ For Director Richard Stanley

Fresh off his rave reviews in Mandy, Nicolas Cage is joining forces with frequently foiled filmmaker Richard Stanley for an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Colour Out of Space. One of Lovecraft’s most terrifying stories, The Colour Out of Space follows a surveyor trying to uncover the cause of mysterious events terrorizing a patch of land in the wilds of Massachusetts. We covered this at the end of last year, but the news was apparently premature at the time. Now it’s official: Mandy prod...
