Today’s Question of the Day is remarkably simple, but it took a reader suggestion to make it appear. TTAC is not short of opinions about cars. I would like to see each submitted state the car or truck, SUV, etc he or she owns or leases. Here’s a start for me: own a 2010 model Prius V and a 2014 Audi Q5. We know that some commenters are linked with certain cars (Davefromcalgary and his Verano 2.0T 6MT, CoreyDL and his Audi) but I’d be interested to see a snapshot of what everyone else drives. I’ll start: 2015 Mazda3 Sport. Previous cars are a 2003 Mazda Miata Shinsen, a 1998 Volvo V70 (5-speed manual) and a 1997 Miata in British Racing Green. 1998 BMW 328i sedan, silver/light grey, 5-speed, 135,000 miles and still looking and driving like the day it was made. 2008 MDX. Seven seats, takes 4×8 sheets, launches standup jetski. Drives way smaller than it feels-Pilot engineers target X5. 2003 330i. The ultimate BMW 6. Smooth. Everyone else is still trying to copy it. 310k and still rockin ‘ No AWD, last one before electronics got out of hand. 2012 TDi. Torque is all. You love torque. 40 mpg at 80 mph Clatter out ! 2 manuals, one autobox. 1977 Triumph 2000TC (307km, first car, still ha...

Cassini-Huygens’ exploration of the Saturn system: 13 years of discovery

During the final stages of the Cassini mission, the spacecraft flew between the planet and its rings, providing a new view on this spectacular system (see the Perspective by Ida). Setting the scene, Spilker reviews the numerous discoveries made using Cassini during the 13 years it spent orbiting Saturn. Iess et al. measured the gravitational pull on Cassini, separating the contributions from the planet and the rings. This allowed them to determine the interior structure of Saturn and the mass of its rings. Buratti et al. present observations of five small moons located in and around the rings. The moons each have distinctive shapes and compositions, owing to accretion of ring material. Tiscareno et al. observed the rings directly at close range, finding complex features sculpted by the gravitational interactions between moons and ring particles. Together, these results show that Saturn’s rings are substantially younger than the planet itself and constrain models of their origin. The Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn provided a close-up study of the gas giant planet, as well as its rings, moons, and magnetosphere. The Cassini spacecraft arrived at Saturn in 2004, dropped th...

Despite having only a teaser trailer and Super Bowl ad for a few months, Marvel Studios has since released a second trailer and various television spots. Now as the movie’s consumer products embargo rapidly approaches, Marvel Studios has begun sending promotional collateral to movie theaters, including a massive standee featuring the previously-teased Hulkbuster armor and Captain Marvel herself, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).

As with all other marketing, the massive standee is completely free of any characters that were...

Landos Biopharma Announces Publication of Results from First-in-Human Phase 1 Study of BT-11 in Healthy Volunteers

BLACKSBURG, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Landos Biopharma, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of first-in-class, oral therapeutics for patients with autoimmune diseases, announced the publication of Phase 1 results of BT-11, its orally-active, gut-restricted investigational new drug (IND) for Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), in the IBD Journal published in association with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. The first-in-human, Phase 1 single ascending dose (SAD) and 7-day multiple ascending dose (MAD) studies showed that BT-11 treatment is well-tolerated with no dose-limiting toxicities, and no detectable systemic immunosuppression up to daily oral doses of 100 mg/kg. “The results of our Phase 1, first-in-human clinical study showed that the adverse event (AE) profile between placebo and BT-11 cohorts were comparable, and verified gut-restricted activity with minimal BT-11 systemic absorption, ” said Dr. Josep Bassaganya-Riera, Chairman and CEO of Landos. “These Phase 1 clinical results reinforce BT-11’s safety profile and show lower concentrations of fecal calprotectin, a predictive biomarker of thera...

Perspective Interpretation of the news based on evidence, including data, as well as anticipating how events

Perspective Interpretation of the news based on evidence, including data, as well as anticipating how events might unfold based on past events Dear Amy: This week I discovered that my intelligent, hard-working, responsible 24-year-old daughter (who lives with me) is a gun owner! And it’s not a normal gun either — it is a .40-caliber semiautomatic, and she has hollow point bullets to go with it. Amy, this is the kind of weapon a criminal would possess! She says it is for emergencies. There have only been two home invasions in our neighborhood in the past 11 years. I’ve given her three choices: She can either give her weapon to me, sell it or move out in three weeks. I love my daughter and would be so sad for her to move into a place that she would hardly be able to afford, but now I have to lock my bedroom door at night because I don’t know what she’s going to do. Now she says that I don’t trust her and is barely speaking to me. How can I convince her to stop endangering us? Dumbfounded Father: According to my research, possessing hollow point bullets is illegal in 11 states; is it legal in your state to own this sort of exploding ammunition? In a r...

Defense Abuses Like 9,400% Markup on Parts Targeted in New Bill

Defense contracting abuses the Pentagon says are “gouging” U.S. taxpayers are being targeted in proposed amendments to the $733 billion defense bill working its way through Congress. The amendments, sponsored by Representatives Ro Khanna and Jackie Speier of California, would give military and civilian contracting officers more authority to demand disclosure of pricing data from sole-source parts providers. That would help them determine if markups are reasonable or inflated. The amendments will be introduced by the two Democrats during consideration starting Wednesday of the House Armed Services committee’s fiscal 2020 defense policy bill. The move comes in response to markups of as much as 4,451% for 46 parts sold from 2015 through 2017 by Cleveland-based TransDigm Group Inc. and disclosed in a February report by the Pentagon’s inspector general. That report and a subsequent congressional hearing highlighted that the Pentagon could end up paying TransDigm $91 million in coming years for parts valued at $28 million. “Getting contracting officers more discretion to get certified costs” and putting “a cap on some percentage” of allowable price increases are key principles of the ...
