can you see this image?
opera can and then you can download it. then you will notice that nothing in puppy or gimp in fatslacko can open or edit it. only opera will open it. just a note for those who monitor this type of stuff that there is a file format out there that puppy doesnt handle. original suffix when i got it from the web was xxxx.jpg.webp https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webp
edit: so reading there it says gimp needs a plugin to handle this google owned file format called .webp. else you could just screenshot it and edit it in mtpaint:) but it is supposed to have a desirable characteristics called "Lossless/lossy compression algorithm" in original form.
edit: and technosaurus know about webp in murga forum
wont display here sometimes
Gene therapy used to fight cancer
December 08, 2013
IN one of the biggest advances against leukaemia and other blood cancers in many years, doctors are reporting unprecedented success by using gene therapy to transform patients' blood cells into soldiers that seek and destroy cancer.
A few patients with one type of leukaemia were given this one-time, experimental therapy several years ago and some remain cancer-free today. Now, at least six research groups have treated more than 120 patients with many types of blood and bone marrow cancers, with stunning results.
"It's really exciting," said Dr Janis Abkowitz, blood diseases chief at the University of Washington in Seattle and president of the American Society of Hematology. "You can take a cell that belongs to a patient and engineer it to be an attack cell."
In one study, all five adults and 19 of 22 children with acute lymphocytic leukaemia, or ALL, had a complete remission, meaning no cancer could be found after treatment, although a few have relapsed since then.
These were gravely ill patients out of options. Some had tried multiple bone marrow transplants and up to 10 types of chemotherapy or other treatments.
Cancer was so advanced in eight-year-old Emily Whitehead of Philipsburg, Pennsylvania, that doctors said her major organs would fail within days. She was the first child given the gene therapy and shows no sign of cancer today, nearly two years later.
Results on other patients with myeloma, lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, or CLL, will be reported at the hematology group's conference that starts on Saturday in New Orleans.
Doctors say this has the potential to become the first gene therapy approved in the United States and the first for cancer worldwide. Only one gene therapy is approved in Europe, for a rare metabolic disease.
The treatment involves filtering patients' blood to remove millions of white blood cells called T-cells, altering them in the lab to contain a gene that targets cancer, and returning them to the patient in infusions over three days.
"What we are giving essentially is a living drug" - permanently altered cells that multiply in the body into an army to fight the cancer, said Dr David Porter, a University of Pennsylvania scientist who led one study.
Several drug and biotech companies are developing these therapies. Penn has patented its method and licensed it to Switzerland-based Novartis AG. The company is building a research centre on the Penn campus in Philadelphia and plans a clinical trial next year that could lead to federal approval of the treatment as soon as 2016.
Talking with the researchers, "there is a sense of making history ... a sense of doing something very unique," said Herv Hoppenot, president of Novartis Oncology, the division leading the work.
Uruguayan senate expected to legalise pot

Uruguay is set to pass a bill to legalise both the cultivation and sale of marijuana. Source: AAP
THE Uruguay Senate is expected to approve a bill that would make it the first country in the world to regulate the cultivation and sale of marijuana.
The bill was already approved by Chamber of Deputies in August to allow individuals aged 18 and older to buy up to 40 grams of marijuana per month from chemists' shops, or to grow up to six cannabis plants, if they register on a database of users.
The effort is part of a move to aid the country's fight against illegal drugs.
Marijuana clubs would be allowed 15 to 45 members, and up to 99 cannabis plants.
The initiative is led by the government of President Jose Mujica, whose Frente Amplio coalition has a narrow majority.
If it becomes law, it would give the state "control and regulation of the activities of import, export, planting, cultivation, harvesting, production, acquisition in any capacity, storage, marketing, and distribution of cannabis and its derivatives."
Possession of cannabis for personal consumption is already tolerated in Uruguay.
A parallel situation can be found in the Netherlands, where marijuana is still considered an illegal drug but is tolerated.
The bill was first presented last year by Defence Minister Eleuterio Fernandez Huidobro, who said he believed the ban on marijuana created more problems for society than the drug itself.
The opposition Colorado Party opposed the legalisation, arguing that it would not reduce drug consumption.
President of the Organisation of American States Jose Miguel Insulz has indicated support for the initiative.
few years back it was possible to see large bags of this stuff on open display in the main markets of Phnom Penh in Cambodia so not sure if Uruguay is the first. not sure if it is still that way in cambodia.
In a historic swirl of commerce and cannabis, the world's first stores licensed to sell marijuana legally to anyone 21 or older opened in Colorado on Wednesday.

God calls for legalization of marijuana on the heels of Supreme Court gay marriage ruling.
In Leviticus 20:13, it reads, paraphrasing, "If a man sleeps with a man as with a woman, they must be stoned...."

World's fastest supercomputer entirely made in China: survey
BEIJING - China has built the world's fastest supercomputer using locally made microchips, a survey said Monday, the first time the country has taken the top spot without using US technology.
so what chips are they using? are they commercially available?
this chip : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SW26010
WUXI, June 20, 2016 (Xinhua) -- Photo taken on June 20, 2016 shows Sunway TaihuLight, a new Chinese supercomputer, in Wuxi, east China's Jiangsu Province. Performing 93 quadrillion calculations per second, Sunway TaihuLight dethroned China's Tianhe-2 from the top in a list of the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world. Sunway TaihuLight, with 10,649,600 computing cores comprising 40,960 nodes, is twice as fast and three times as efficient as Tianhe-2, which has a performance of 33.86 quadrillion calculations per second, or petaflop/s. The new system was developed by the Chinese National Research Center of Parallel Computer Engineering & Technology and installed at the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi. (Xinhua/Li Xiang)
WASHINGTON, June 20 (Xinhua) -- It's no longer big news that a Chinese supercomputer dominates a list of the world's fastest machines these days, but a No. 1 system built using entirely made-in-China chips instead of U.S. technology is no doubt a milestone.
