Boosters and Covid
Dunn said hospitals in Utah have been "stable" until this week. The state dashboard reports a 27.3% increase in the seven-day average of COVID-19 hospitalizations, and a 35.3% jump in seven-day average cases in the ICU.
"The silver lining in this increase is that it's definitely not as steep," she said. "It's happening at a slower pace."
Dunn said the increase in cases could be from new Omicron subvariants and vaccination/booster shot immunity wearing off.
"We're starting to see that increase and with that, an increase in positivity," said Dunn. "So we're now seeing 25% to 30% positivity."
She said current positivity rates mirror similar peaks seen in early 2021 and beyond.
"The people-over-people method is up 625% since April 2," she explained. "The testing-over-testing method is up 850%."

Re: Google employee 100 trillion digits of pi
: Google has successfully calculated 100 trillion digits of π, setting a new world record in the process. This isn't the first time Google has topped the leaderboard. In 2019, the search giant became the first to use a commercial cloud service and solid state drives to set the Pi record at 31.4 trillion digits calculated.
A team from the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons swiped the record last year, pushing the total up to 62.8 trillion decimal places.
Like before, Google used y-cruncher to perform calculations. This time around, the Compute Engine was configured with 128 vCPUs, 864 GB of RAM and 100 Gbps of egress bandwidth. For comparison, the 2019 calculation had just 16 Gbps of egress bandwidth.
The program ran for a total of 157 days, 23 hours, 31 minutes and 7.651 seconds, utilizing 43.5 PB of reads and 38.5 PB of writes in the process.On Fri, Jun 10, 2022 at 3:00 PM Larry wrote:

Alzheimer's discovery hints at drugs to stop cells frying "like eggs"
The breakthrough stems from the team's explorations in what's known as intracellular thermogenesis, an emerging field that centers on gauging temperature changes within cells. Advanced sensors have made such measurements possible, and the team is the first to apply it to the study of Alzheimer's disease, focusing their attention on one of the prime suspects in its onset known as amyloid-beta proteins.
The buildup of amyloid-beta proteins into toxic clumps is considered a key driver of the neurodegeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease, and they therefore receive considerable attention from scientists working to better understand the condition. The Cambridge team had been investigating links between intracellular thermogenesis and amyloid-beta aggregation, and these advanced new sensors provided the perfect tools to delve into the details.
"Thermogenesis has been associated with cellular stress, which may promote further aggregation," said Chyi Wei Chung, the study's first author. "We believe that when there's an imbalance in cells, like when the amyloid-beta concentration is slightly too high and it starts to accumulate, cellular temperatures increase."
