    I bought the original Hummin work on etsy today. I'm hoping it will arrive in time for Valentine's Day, for my wife.

    Thanks, TB!

    I use my medical training and biochemical background, as well as research training to look at study design for the p2 and p3 trials. If I am not confident that a product represents an improved technology that deserves a shot at the marketplace, and has reasonable safety and efficacy data, I won't even look any further at the economics or marketing strategy, which are not really my area of expertise, so I have to rely on analysts to summarize such for me.


    I assume that most articles written by analysts lack the scientific and clinical background to really rationally evaluate how worthwhile the product will be in the health professions, and is mostly hype to sell stocks. A few of the analysts I read here on SA seem to do a fair job of evaluating the clinical science and needs, and those are the articles I might recommend to others.

    Weekly NYS DOH Influenza Report out last night:

    >>
    During the week ending January 25, 2014:
     Influenza activity level was categorized as geographically widespread2 with laboratory confirmed influenza reported
    in 56 counties plus New York City.
     There were 2,669 laboratory‐confirmed influenza reports, a 4% decrease over the previous week.
     Of the 922 specimens submitted to NYS WHO/NREVSS laboratories, 196 were positive for influenza.
     Sixty one of the 117 specimens submitted to the NYSDOH laboratory were positive for influenza. 56 were influenza
    A (H1), three were influenza A (H3), and two were influenza A (not subtyped).
     Reports of percent of patient visits for influenza‐like illness (ILI3) from ILINet providers was 3.46%, which is above
    the regional baseline of 2.2%.
     The number of patients admitted to the hospital with laboratory‐confirmed influenza or hospitalized patients newly
    diagnosed with laboratory‐confirmed influenza was 457, a 21% decrease over the previous week.
     There were no influenza‐associated pediatric deaths reported this week. There has been one influenza‐associated
    pediatric death reported this season.
    <<

    So, slight drop in prevalence rate, still mostly H1N1 swine flu, still no drug resistance in tested samples.

    Thanks. I pm'd you. Would love the Hummin original, and will also grab the Blue Ridge Vision as I check out.

    Thanks, TB. I found your Etsy site and ordered the Appalachian Vision. I did not see "Humming." Same site?

    Jason Napodano has been giving some good background on it in recent months. Check his articles on SA and Zacks.


    I decided to take a bite this week as everything seemed to be tumbling. My customary bottom dweller activity.

    Gorgeous, TB!


    It's like a photo at wide aperture and shutter speed 1000 made magically dreamy in ethereal watercolor. Crisp inked outlines of the action stopped in an instant. I love the hint of honeysuckle foliage in the bokehed background.


    Are prints available? My wife would love it.

    Yes, WT, I was astounded today at the pops across my pharma watchlist.

    Too busy in meatspace today to watch as it unfolded, but I did catch a couple thou shares of (OTCQB:ULUR) this morning with a GTC order. I like their wound treatment technology, and see it as something that could take off in a year or two. More sock drawer stuff.

    '86,

    I would not rule out the idea entirely of using PbC tech in an altered form factor battery, such as the bipolar design from Atraverda. Thinner lead plates, lightweight ceramic bipolar separaters, Axion carbon electrodes; it could cut significant weight and bulk and improve energy density. The bipolar modules could be made smaller and lighter and stacked in series to achieve higher voltage and phenomenal DCA.

    SHB, I think you are forgetting about x-ray lasers. The NSA hasn't.


    Triple layers of tin foil OVER your colander is the only Snell-approved head gear for x-rays and kryptonite protection. UL certification is pending.

    I read it in Consumer Reports, so you know it has to be true!

    Try reporting at http://1.usa.gov/1cx8IgD


    Just as likely to get an effective response.

    I wonder how many undocumented workers it took to clear that snowbound charger.

    Does that show up in Tesla's balance sheet?

    So true, gt.

    I don't know MrH's time frame, but here are some things my wife really appreciated:

    She loves Klimt and drinks tea every morning: http://bit.ly/1a2Bvu0

    I gave her canvas-printed photos of our children in their early years and her beloved dog: http://bit.ly/1a2BwOB

    The turn around on ordering these is something like 2-4 weeks. Sometimes faster.

    These were appreciated as reflecting an understanding of what she cherished most.

    I find if I get her utilitarian things like really nice cookware or appliances, she accuses me of buying them for myself. She is usually right. ;-)
