Canadian scientists make COVID-19 research breakthrough, isolating virus

The team, made up of scientists from Sunnybrook Hospital, McMaster University and the University of Toronto, used samples taken from two Canadian COVID-19 patients to replicate the virus in a level three containment facility at the University of Toronto in a matter of weeks.

Mubareka says having access to the virus will allow researchers to start working on potential solutions to the pandemic before the outbreak peaks in Canada.

Meanwhile, Quebec-based biotech Medicago says it has taken the first step towards a vaccine by producing a virus-like particle of the novel coronavirus, which will now undergo testing for safety and efficacy.

L'ennui dansle domaine de l'entreprise, tu fais ce que l'on te dit et en général, il faut que ça tourne partout... d'ou la version VS ... supposée 'passer' partout... mais au condition de la 'dictature' de Redmond.... :(!


I posted more of a variety of stuff on G+. Now, it's almost all political and activism oriented.
@DavïÐ Låzårµ§ Understandable. There is a lot more need to spread this stuff now than there was in the G+ days...
@Adam Gaskins - That said, my reach was much further on G+. Millions of users rather than tens of thousands.


This is by far the most useful resource on Vim that I've come across! Some very cool stuff here.

Full disclosure I am NOT super Vim savvy, I know the general basics and use a few plugins... and that's likely why I find this video exciting! So, ymmv, but check it out if you're a Vim user or are Vim-curious! :)

if you find this video informative, I can recommend the book Practical Vim as well. It contains a ton of worthwhile tips and tricks to improve your editing workflow.
Thanks for the tip @kungtotte :void:, I'll look for it next time I'm at the bookstore!

What other candidate has been this consistent for so long, or identified, decades ago, all the problems that would be most important today?

Yes and has been able to stay active in Government for that long!



This list of the earliest know use of maths terms is an amazing way to loose time finding old (but super interesting) papers to read thru! Stuff you may likely never come across otherwise!

For someone like myself who loves, but is less than proficient at, maths.... this is a treasure trove of older and more approachable technical papers! And if you are a maths wizard, well I'm sure you can appreciate it for the history and maybe add some obscure older papers to your offline archive! ;)

Here are some candy hearts written by the neural net GPT-2. It's one of the most powerful text-generating neural nets out there, but I don't think it really knows what is expected of a candy heart.


Most uncomfortable moment as a father...

As a father, the most uncomfortable moment of my life, thus far, was this morning when my six year old daughter put this musical dance number on the television...

I can understand your feelings man!
I will not see this video, but i'm sure it's at the fringe of debasing entertainment and sex-related crime


Fox News’ incendiary, fanatical rants serve to delegitimize to its viewers the very idea of a political opposition. Every Democrat is evil. Every person who disagrees with President Trump is an enemy of the state. Every career federal employee is a member of a deep state opposition.

This article, while a month old now, is still incredibly relevant and likely to have been missed during the chaos of past weeks. Given that, I think it makes sense to repost it.

This is the video Americans should sharing; it elucidates what's happening here better than most others! I don't like reposting from major networks, but this is the full uncut press briefing by two republicans who could not be part of the cover up. The rest of their party is already on damage control, but this needs to be seen and for people to hear what Trumps minions said during the assassination debriefing!

If you're in to gaming please check out my son's youtube channel! He's 10 & a proud Linux gamer, and I'm so proud of him! He got a new video card and has really leveled up his quality on his latest videos too.

Anyways, here's his latest Hollow Knight series video (you should see the previous two on the side, if interested)!

Thanks! :)

WARNING although there's nothing particularly graphic in this, it does deal with some brutal topics that content moderators are exposed to. Just a heads up! Otherwise, this is an enlightening interview that puts a human face on a problem we are all aware of and yet rarely consider deeply. Go say something nice to a moderator! :)

e-Hallpass, installed on kids' school-issued Chromebooks, tracks everything including when they go to the bathroom. This would be pretty gross even if it were free software, but at least then kids would be able to opt out.


using PPI long-term for acid reflux can increase likelihood of stomach cancer.



If you haven’t already caught this interview I’d highly suggest watching it! Not so much for anything you don’t likely already know, but for the renewal it provides to the justifiably depleted inventory of ‘fucks‘ which one has left to give in these days of overwhelming nonsense...

Honestly I trust chinese/taiwan corporations lesser than Gugl... However if this will benefits some Linux stacks for any reason we will thanks Mr President for his childish commercial war against China...
@Daniel Yeah, in general I'd agree, given that that even though they have what might appear to be privately owned businesses, the government technically owns them all... but the more I actually researched the Huawei claims the more I'm certain that they are pretty legit. I really trust them as much as I'd trust Dell or HP, whom iirc have all have all had cases of installing some sort of malware/phone home bs at some point over the years - and any US company could just as easily have state-sponsored malware installed given the closed-source and downright suspicious nature of the hardware from Intel (and AMD too if I'm not mistaken). I just assume it all has shit-ware on it at the the hardware level and do what I can to mitigate it... but out-of-band stuff is rather tricky to mitigate :\ If you want a machine with something newer than like core-duo you pretty much have to just assume the worst, haha.


If you’re on... that other site... and you have a moment to spare, please vote on my son’s poll to pick his next gaming video he’ll make! It would mean a lot to get him some votes! I voted Universe Sandbox :P

My son is live-streaming a Terraria 'Undertale adventure map' play-through!

He just started streaming today, so please check him out and say hi if you like Terraria and/or Undertale! :)


This is my wife's grandparents. They were great people, and I'm glad our kids got to know their great-grandparents!

So sorry for your loss.


Quote of the day:

"It's been said before, but this is not a debate. There is no debate. There is no "on the one hand, on the other hand." There is no "privacy v. security." This is "no privacy and weakened security v. actual privacy and actual security." There's literally no debate to be had here. If you understand the issues, encryption is essential, and any effort to take away end-to-end encryption is outlawing technology that keeps everyone safe."
