15 new languages on numeroom.com

As the beta period rolls on, we are picking up new users and getting feedback on how to improve the site. To aid providing feedback on the services offered the new feedback tab makes it easy to suggest changes. I'll be using the most voted items on the feedback page to prioritize changes so use the voting system to request the changes you most want.

That said, two new changes were rolled to production last night. First, support for 15 new languages for the language translation feature:


greek
lithuanian
finnish
swedish
czech
slovak
albanian
latvian
norwegian
croatian
maltese
galician
estonian
bulgarian
chinese (tradditional)


The new languages multiply the real time interactions that can occur on the system in any free numeroom. The original vision of breaking down language barriers in order to expedite communication and understanding between people all over the world is quickly being realized thanks to the use of the efficient distributed algorithm that makes this feature possible. The combination of timeline events, file sharing and security makes a numeroom an ideal place to convene all your online friends , business associates and customers. For businesses, the guest customer service allows guests to select their language and implicitly translate the agent language to their own for the new languages seamlessly.

Secondly, a bug which caused premature session time outs for guests has been fixed.
I am busy plotting launching an ad campaign using the previously mentioned magpie twitter third party site that should enable me to reach out to collaboration minded users of that service. I'll be posting on the how that proceeds in posts to come. Stay tuned.

Highly targeted Cpg vaccine immunotherapy for a range of cancer

Significance?


This will surely go down as a seminal advance in cancer therapy. It reads like magic:

So this new approach looks for the specific proteins that are associated with a given tumors resistance to attack by the body's T cells, it then adjusts those T cells to be hyper sensitive to the specific oncogenic proteins targeted. These cells become essentially The Terminator​ T cells in the specific tumor AND have the multiplied effect of traveling along the immune pathway of spreading that the cancer many have metastasized. This is huge squared because it means you can essentially use targeting one tumor to identify and eliminate distal tumors that you many not even realize exist.

This allows the therapy for treating cancer to, for the first time; end the "wack a mole" problem that has frustrated traditional shot gun methods of treatment involving radiation and chemotherapy ...which by their nature unfortunately damage parts of the body that are not cancer laden but …

Engineers versus Programmers

I have found as more non formally trained people enter the coding space, the quality of code that results varies in an interesting way.

The formalities of learning to code in a structured course at University involve often strong focus on "correctness" and efficiency in the form of big O representations for the algorithms created.

Much less focus tends to be placed on what I'll call practical programming, which is the type of code that engineers (note I didn't use "programmers" on purpose) must learn to write.

Programmers are what Universities create, students that can take a defined development environment and within in write an algorithm for computing some sequence or traversing a tree or encoding and decoding a string. Efficiency and invariant rules are guiding development missions. Execution time for creating the solution is often a week or more depending on the professor and their style of teaching code and giving out problems. This type of coding is devo…

First *extra Galactic* planetary scale bodies observed

This headline


Significance?
So every so often I see a story that has me sitting at the keyboard for a few seconds...actually trying to make sure the story is not some kind of satire site because the headline reads immediately a nonsense.
This headline did just that.
So I proceeded to frantically click through and it appears it was a valid news item from a valid news source and my jaw hit the floor.
Many of you know that we've been finding new planets outside of our solar system for about 25 years now.
In fact the Kepler satellite and other ground observatories have been accelerating their rate of extra-solar planet discoveries in the last few years but those planets are all within our galaxy the Milky Way.
The three major methods used to detect the bulk of planets thus far are wobble detection, radial transit and this method micro lensing which relies on a gravitational effect that was predicted by Einstein in his general theory of relativity exactly 103 years ago.
