We shouldn’t limit the pool of potential NIH Directors to people who are most credentialed in the traditional academic life sciences. To draw on a private sector example, that would be like hiring a new CEO of a beverage company only from the existing pool of beverage company executives. Instead, when a company enters a CEO search, they might look to hire from within their own industry, but they also search far and wide for executives from other industries who have overseen change that their own firm would like to emulate.
Across the barriers of language, class and faith, joined-up gardening unites us, from Oxford to the Sufi heart of Sindh
JPMorgan is getting no special arrangements as part of this deal, according to one of the people familiar with the talks. “These deposits will be treated the exact same way anyone’s non-insured deposit would be treated,” this person said. The deposits have to stay at First Republic for 120 days and earn interest at the same rate of current depositors.
“So yes, of course, Syd loomed all over ‘The Dark Side of the Moon.’ Maybe Syd was the big shadow that creates the dark side of the moon,” he continued.
Breitbart’s debate partner on that show, liberal Leslie Marshall, gleefully predicted that Trump would become another Schwarzenegger and destroy the GOP from within.
Again, making predictions is hard, especially about the future. Perhaps more interesting is how Schwartz and Leyden looked that what might possibly go wrong with the bullish scenario, what they call “scenario spoilers” that could “cut short the Long Boom.” As I think you will see, many of them seem pretty relevant to America and the world of the 2020s. Here they are, in the order they were presented in 1997, with some comments by me:
When I asked the Committee to Protect Journalists why Assange did not make their list, I was directed to a December 2019 statement: “After extensive research and consideration, CPJ chose not to list Assange as a journalist, in part because his role has just as often been as a source,” it reads, “and because WikiLeaks does not generally perform as a news outlet with an editorial process.” The newspapers that signed the November letter have similarly refused to claim Assange as one of their own. At the same time, other charges and smears have warped the public narrative, obscuring the threats to the First Amendment. Many of the outlets now expressing alarm have ignored or misrepresented key information about his plight along the way. It is crucial to reflect on these misdirections, especially as a blatant assault on press freedom now appears to be on the brink of success.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk has said he would like the launch industry to achieve airline-like operations with rockets one day. His company is not there yet, as it takes a couple of weeks to land, refurbish, and relaunch a Falcon 9 first stage. Each mission still requires a brand-new second stage. And the fastest turnaround time at its three launch pads, Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and Vandenberg in California, is still about a week for each facility.

However, cloud-first strategies may be hitting the limits of their efficacy, and in many cases, ROIs are diminishing, triggering a major cloud backlash. Ubiquitous cloud adoption has given rise to new challenges, namely out-of-control costs, deepening complexity and restrictive vendor lock-in. We call this cloud sprawl.
Banks have a wide range of options to raise cash, but all those options depend on the market value of a bank’s assets. A bank could sell an assets outright at market value, or borrow against it. There is a range of lenders that are willing to lend secured to a bank, ranging from private investors to Federal Home Loan Banks to the Fed’s discount window.
Seven research studies reveal the traits and experiences that influence the decision to start a business.
Generally, it takes a clear technology shift that is accompanied by a strong marketing message to change things in a mature market. What that might be for the next round of cameras, however, is unclear. Current top cameras exceed virtually all customer needs at the moment. Incremental change won’t produce another high price replacement cycle that’s large enough to show clear profit growth.
I set about meeting local leaders and soon learned that no one was interested in my apologies for the war; they were pleased to be rid of Saddam, and they had high expectations that the coalition could fix everything very quickly. The US, after all, had put a man on the moon, one Iraqi noted.
Figures for the US….
After 20-years, the total amount of electricity (not energy) from fossil fuels has dropped from about 67% to about 60%. What’s changed is the make-up; gas has soared while coal has gone way down. pic.twitter.com/WsaYNskfwk

Most drops we’ve looked at are heavily farmed and Sybiled
2: humans programmatically create lots of wallet IDs and jump through the hoops to qualify for a drop. Once dropped, they transfer their gains to a single wallet and dump the token (or list any NFTs). The resulting circle pattern of post-drop transfers has become so common at Spindl we call it the ‘bacteria plot,’ because it looks like a Petri dish exposed to microbes.
I am skeptical that I could find the right person at the right bank to actually authorize a deal like this but it turns out that the Danish mortgage system is built to allow this relatively easily. The Danish mortgage system is built on the match principle:
This week in 1976, Joni went to Wisconsin for a show. At the time, she was going through a breakup & canceled the rest of her tour. While gazing at Lake Mendota from the hotel, she decided to purchase skates & go to the ice. Joel Bernstein was there to capture the moment. pic.twitter.com/2BOi2vmkQP

Several Republican lawmakers have urged the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to publicly address any role it may have played in the military records requests. According to Federal Election Commission records, the DCCC paid Due Diligence just over $110,000 between January 2021 and December 2022 and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee paid just over $172,000 to Due Diligence during that period.
“The RASCW Housing Advocacy Fund is dedicated to supporting policies and candidates that will help solve Madison’s housing crises,” Hackney said. “Wisconsin’s housing crisis is at a tipping point, and we will continue to create compelling campaigns to help residents realize who the local elected officials are that want to continue to move the city into the future.”
Our analysis covers two sets of official practice materials for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), a three-step examination program used to assess clinical competency and grant licensure in the United States. We also evaluate performance on the MultiMedQA suite of benchmark datasets. Beyond measuring model performance, experiments were conducted to investigate the influence of test questions containing both text and images on model performance, probe for memorization of content during training, and study calibration of the probabilities, which is of critical importance in high-stakes applications like medicine.
The real bailout story is the regime change in the Fed’s treatment of collateral. Par value goes against every risk management commandment of the past 30 years. It turbocharges the monetary power of collateral.”
Historian Tom Holland joined Tyler to discuss in what ways his Christianity is influenced by Lord Byron, how the Book of Revelation precipitated a revolutionary tradition, which book of the Bible is most foundational for Western liberalism, the political differences between Paul and Jesus, why America is more pro-technology than Europe, why Herodotus is his favorite writer, why the Greeks and Persians didn’t industrialize despite having advanced technology, how he feels about devolution in the United Kingdom and the potential of Irish unification, what existential problem the Church of England faces, how the music of Ennio Morricone helps him write for a popular audience, why Jurassic Park is his favorite movie, and more.
Doctors are proud of their occupation’s mixture of sacrament and science in service to society. Urbanely trained at universities, these learned professionals once left the city to settle into solo practices or small partnerships in the towns they served. This autonomy allowed them to charge patients what they could afford—some more, some less and some not at all. Meanwhile, their authority allowed them to advocate effectively on behalf of their patients, even on nonmedical matters. Their familiarity with their neighbor-patients encouraged participation in the community, both economically and socially.

This is also how Hindenburg makes money. They’re short sellers — which means they make money by betting a stock will decline in value. After they make their bets, they release their report, which, yes, often makes the stock decline in value! It’s cool that anyone does this much research and reporting on companies; I know very few journalists who can spend two years on a single story like this.
The design of Dark Sky was so wonderful that I could understand the shape of the weather at a glance, even from a zoomed out view of the app.
A director at the think tank and their lawyer told DailyMail.com the immigration documents could expose a thorny diplomatic issue: whether Harry declared his previous illegal drug use, and whether DHS officers gave him special treatment.
Is the New York Times allergic to the words “first reported by @PuckNews“?
In addition to first reporting several other details in this story, Puck scooped the existence of these subpoenas to Guarding Against Pandemics staff already.

Macron’s ministers have been taken off dossiers where they have conflicts of interest — though that has highlighted the sheer number of these conflicts within the tiny Parisian ruling caste: Marlène Schiappa, minister of state for the social economy, had to hand in much of her portfolio after shacking up with the boss of a big mutual health insurance provider. The minister for energy transition, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, cannot touch matters involving petrol company Perenco, which her dad used to run, nor deal with the energy company Engie, where her ex-husband is a senior director. And Jean-Noël Barrot, minister delegate for the digital economy, cannot handle matters involving Uber, where his sister is a communications chief
Moore and his longtime colleague Robert Noyce founded Intel in July 1968. Moore initially served as executive vice president until 1975, when he became president. In 1979, Moore was named chairman of the board and chief executive officer, posts he held until 1987, when he gave up the CEO position and continued as chairman. In 1997, Moore became chairman emeritus, stepping down in 2006.
Not for nothing, however. I invite you to don the green eyeshade of an auto maker’s accountant. A car is a widget. While the market sets the price, the cost to produce said widget can be divvied up many ways, expressing the priorities of the brand, man. In this case, the CX-50 blows its discre-tionary budget on snazzy exterior design and premium-class material quality.

This was a run on SVB’s business model. And when a bank’s business model no longer looks viable, then it starts mattering what the bank looks like from a liquidation perspective. In general, a bank is always going to look horrible through that lens, and the balance sheet grinds to a halt. So much of a bank’s value is tied up in counterparty/depositor/borrower relationships, providing its balance sheet as a service, its employees, ongoing management of assets within that bank’s corporate structure, long-term viability, etc. Capital ratios measure capital to assets, but the market measures capital ratios against a firm’s business model.
