Sexual fantasies: Are you normal? - EurekaAlert NEW!
The scientific community has made significant strides in recent years in identifying important genetic contributors to malignancy and developing therapeutic agents that target altered genes and proteins. A recent approach to treat cancer called synthetic lethality takes advantage of genetic alterations in cancer cells that make them more susceptible to certain drugs. Alan F. List, MD, president and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center, co-authored an article on synthetic lethality featured in the Oct. 30 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Google project aims to preserve privacy when collecting software stats... - PC World NEW!
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission appears set to reclassify broadband so that it comes under the agencyâ€™s authority, but without explicitly prohibiting special access deals between broadband and content companies, according to a news report.FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is mulling this hybrid answer to the knotty â€śnet neutralityâ€ť issue, and his proposal would still require a vote of the full five-member commission, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. Broadband providers may also challenge in court the move to give the FCC more authority.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Major banks ready their own mobile payment apps - PC World NEW!
Google is applying a surveying technique from the 1960s to a project that aims to collect data about usersâ€™ computers without potentially compromising their privacy.The project is nicknamed RAPPOR, which stands for Randomized Aggregatable Privacy-Preserving Ordinal Response. Google plans to present a paper on it next week at the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security.Â RAPPOR is intended to collect statistics about software, such as security flaws, but in a way that doesnâ€™t expose sensitive information. It can do that by applying a technique used for randomized response surveys, wrote Ulfar Erlingsson, tech lead manager for security research.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
