Gene-Altered Squid Could Be The Next Lab Rats

"Okay Nell. Greenfieldboyce last year, you visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts. Tell me about it. What was it like? So it's sort of beautiful location right there on the coast of Massachusetts and you go inside. In you know, they took me to this room full of kind of burgling aquariums everywhere and. All of our exotic animals, the guy giving me, the tour was Brett Grassy and his official title. There is manager of Cephalopod operations. It's amazing title. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight PAJAMAS, squids. These ones are native to Australia. We've got our octopus church, which is the pygmy zebra octopus, their native to Nicaragua small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than table. A. Table Grape. Nice. Yes. So they're they're looking at all kinds of squid and octopus is to try to find ones that you are easy to take care of that reproduce. quickly, that are going to be good to be sort of like the next lab rat and their work involves everything from the very latest high tech kind of gene editing tools to just like a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor. Why rocks? Well, they use them to make like little habitats in the tanks but they also use them to way down some of the lids. So octopuses are notorious for being able to kind of escape out of their enclosures. I've heard of this in aquariums. Octopus have been known to climb out and wonder around. Yeah, they're clever. You know. So when I visited Bret told me, there were roughly around three thousand cephalopods under their care there. But honestly walking around and looking in the tanks, you can hardly see any because they like to hide in those rocks and you know other little things, little containers. Keepers put in their tanks at one point read opened up this one plastic container and reached into the water and pulled out this little like like terra cotta pot and inside was this California two spot octopus. She's right down in there. Because see her eyeball, fairly see her. Yeah, and so basically, this is a kind of a common Dan either they're gonNA find rocks or. Some sort of basically dark enclosure sometimes. So this was a female octopus sitting on her eggs, and while we were looking at her, she's sort of shot out some water at us. She's of trying to skirt some water here. She thinks that I'm going to give some food or she's just trying to say you know I'm sitting in here taking care of my eggs and You know come back another time so now. Now. If you had a podcast called nell spies and octopus I would listen to it will we would have a lot to talk about because cephalopods are pretty crazy i. mean they have these sophisticated brains, they can solve puzzles, they can change their skin color like an instant. They can re-grow arms, they travel using jet propulsion. I. Mean. Some people have said they are as close to aliens living on Earth as we've got. that. is so cool. Honestly, we do a whole episode just about cephalopods, but I WANNA go back to this research question about using them as model organisms. So why CEPHALOPODS in particular? Well. It's all those odd features that makes them interesting to biologists I. Mean, for example, I mentioned their brains, you know the they're clearly sophisticated problem solvers, but their brains just look completely different from our own like they showed me one in a glass vial that looked almost like a triangle shape and you know there's brains that look like doughnuts that wrap around the Esophagus, you know at the same time, we know that some of their brain chemistry. Chemistry has got to be somewhat similar to ours because there have been experiments at how octopuses react to the drug ecstasy. Right? It seems to make them like little more friendly and cuddly to. So you know it's it's just fascinating to look at these creatures that are on the one hand. So different and on the one hand similar and studying, them could help scientists see what's necessary and what's not for being able to perform you know amazing mental feats. Feats like the ones people can do, and apparently you know some cephalopods seem

Tips every Django developer should know

"This first tip that have this is like one of the main things that I think of is like it comes with these building block pieces that say Flask Impure Pyramid and. Bass APN. What just don't come with like Admin back ends Yup. That's where we're going to start off. So Django clearly comes at batteries included and some people actually don't like that because they've under rule their own and they think itself. I happen to like their preferences and yeah, one of those well-known building blocks as the admin interface at and it's it's pretty impressive. But a few lines of code you. You can just add your model, an avid pie file, and you have to complete crowd interface, which is probably pretty end user. But as a maintain earth, this site it's it's pretty convenient and it's also very easy to extend it. So for example, taking admin class here, you can define some search fields. which makes those field searchable. You can have even have out a complete fields which they integrated the jobless Ritz. You can override to get crazy set and. Yeah. It's a nice way of inheriting from the Admin Dots Model Admin blasts Yeah. So it comes out of the box just. Kind of think of it as like. Google sheets or something for your database, right? Right. Where each table is like a tab or a sheet and sit in the workbook or whatever the terminology of Google sheets is. But the task. The bottom writes something I mean not necessarily stimuli. But that idea that you have like a grid over top of it. But what you're telling me is I can go into rive special classes that are tied to the various. Tables the models more specifically in it lets you search different aspects of it. Lets you cool. Auto completion. You could also say like limit how many items come back in your search results per page. So you don't get a million or something like that, right? Yeah. Do a list filter, for example, and then certain columns at the right side of the page. You can filter on them by clicking. Just. With one nine of coach. So this does raise some Cole functionality and I think, maybe in the show notes, we can link to a Django adleman cookbook, I use a loss which has like the hands. On. I. Might have mentioned before actually on pie down the vice then the umbrella from that book. That's like fifty pages and. Yeah Very. Workable. Super Bowl. Another thing you can do is you can write a function called get query set and actually do things like be joyner, do a joined queries against other things. Otherwise you may it up with like the N plus one problem of Orum's were doing queer than everything that comes back. You have to do more queries per item to try to fill out the details, I will talk about that in in one of the tips. Yeah. Yeah. Awesome. That's super cool. Let's see what else you want to say about that I. You know I was it. You think it might have been you either you or damn baiter. baiter from real python talking about using this to actually trigger events as you interact with this adman was that you think that was me. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So tell us that's like I. think that's pretty related. Tell people by the pretty. Cool. Right. We spoke about that on Python Bites Yeah. Thank God. We did was in one of the at model self variety safe method, and then the object plus created, and only then do a certain action. He likes emailing people in Hindsight. That's probably better to do it a salary task by it's an example how you can override those methods and do certain things. Yeah. Pretty easily. Yeah very cool. All right remember to or magic. Yeah. Well, Dan go comes with its own orem object relational napper and it's kind of a proxy today. So you don't have to ride s all yourself although i. Am such a fan. I'm saying, well, you worked at, Oracle, didn't you? Fan of orange actually or in the nurse sequel world maybe od M.'s or or some. are might not necessarily make sense, but you know there's so many issues you can run into if you don't use parameters, queries, little bobby tables, and all those issues and just like if you get the rock queries back and you pull different values sometimes you forget to convert this thing to an integer and it's just a string that has an energy in it that sort of. All these little weird edge cases right now you're as. With. Orum's at kind of. Like a layer that just separates like how your data should be transformed I. Really Love It. I, think it's great. I know one hundred percent work all the time. Right? There's places where it doesn't. But that's not as you know like most the time it's a it's a beautiful thing and it's it's a nice obstruction and it's way easier to use and more elegant.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League

"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

And she's so to keep in a cage for a while until he calms down, and there's a scene where all these little kids like our fucking with him while he's in a cage, and basically, sir stoning mogul all he's into your like there's like he has his head down in Little Rock hits them. And you're like, oh, what was that another one hits in another one and all these kids get up just laughing, and you're just stoning him like inside the cage. It's so fucked because I'm like they're gonna kill this poor child in there's like no adults around. None of the other villagers all these kids are just fucking with him and finally mogul gets pissed off and like hits the cage and scares them off and then they run away. But I was like man, I don't know if it would be better for you, not to still just stay in the jungle ones. Fuck the humans because like these little fucking kids are gonna kill you. If you stay here. The hunter that individ-. He he takes mogayon and he tries to take him under his wing and teach them and stuff, and he seems nice at first until he is drunk once he gets drunk. You learn he's kind of an asshole. He gloats about. Hunting the animals for sport and killing them and stuff like that. Moly doesn't like that. He gloats about. Moberly being able to understand the language and being uneducated and stuff. Kinda makes an asset of himself doing that. He just he takes a one eighty turn. I didn't see it coming. It was a nice little plot twist because I thought like, oh, you know, this is gonna sound kinda bad. But a lot of movies dude is this like, oh, you know, the one white guy in this foreign land he's going to be the savior. And he's going to be the one to bring, you know, the people out of their plight, and this that and the other and it's like he's gonna be the one to to teach mogul the ways of man, and he's going to be the hero of the story. And, you know, come to find out he's he's actually a pretty bag. Moberly was going to kill him. In his sleep. Once he found out that he killed his little Elbino wolf friend. He took the knife that the hundred gave him because one hundred taught him how to like Gora pig or something like that. Instead of like just chewing at it with his teeth, and he gave him a knife and Moberly was literally going to stab the shit out of him in his sleep until he sees the tusk of an elephant that the hunters stole. And he remember seeing the elephant earlier in the film in the jungle that was missing one of his tusk, and he has the idea to go to the jungle to try and help him kill two birds. One stone literally Moby convinces the elephants to help him kill now only shere Khan. But the hunter as well. And they just pretty much gang up on shere Khan and jump him and beat the shit out of them enough to where mogul can fight him on his own and then Moberly sins or points out the hunter to the elephants who then goes and tramples him too. It is so funny when he kills them because he just likes snatches them up and just throw them. You just hear scream like bench, and it's hilarious. And I was like, yes. That was that is fine. The finishing blow them overly gives to share con was pretty cool because shere Khan shy and he's already beat up from the elephants fighting and stuff like that. And he's just tired and bleed now. And you think that he's dying and Moberly stands over him and watches his eyes as he dies like the wolves taught him about you know, when they do their kill..

Right because there are a million ways to help people. Dominic a million ways. And I just gotta tell you. I feel like I heard your soul come alive when you started talking about giving advice to your friends. I heard it. And I sense that a smile broke over your face as well.

"Rene is in Little Rock, Arkansas. Rene you're on the Larry elder show. Thank you so much for calling. Thank you Larry for having the I've never called in. But when I got in my car and turned on your show, and you were talking about Chuck Schumer, and basically it's passed. Indiscretions if you will and how she basically is judging or trying to judge Brett Cavanaugh. And here's what it comes down to to me. Larry, I'm an African American woman in forty three. I'm not a Republican. But I'm no longer a democrat. And I haven't been for a long time. For this very reason that you just pointed out the bottom line. Oh. There's your top on both sides, certainly character. Either organization. Like. None of these folks cared. It's not worth defending either. What we should be demanding is that our representatives no longer represent financial interests that they represent real evil, and if they have character. So for instance, in your church to change over time, of course, you can evolve. But you really have character you wouldn't lie about where you've been. Well, Renee, I certainly agree with you this hypocrisy on both sides. No question about it. But I don't believe that a pox on both their houses the Democratic Party pushes this phony narrative Rene that race in the remains the fundamental problem in America. They pushed the narrative that sexy remains a major problem in America that is simply not true. And you're telling people that they're victims, especially black people because the Democrats need that ninety five percent close to monolithic black vote without which they cannot win at the presidential level. So I don't believe the parties are equally at fault. I agree with they're hypocrites on both sides. But to say that the both parties are are just as bad. No way. No way a mini. Okay. Let me say one thing. Okay. I I'm originally from Michigan. I'm living in Little Rock Arkansas my family's from the east side of the state. And let me tell you, something racism and sexism are so alive in in your face here in a way like it. It really feels like I'm not even the United States here in Arkansas. Here's what I'm going to say having lived in thirteen thirty five of the fifty for me as a professional African American woman raises, an sexism really loud and in your faith in certain parts of this country. And he happened to be living in one of those days. Well. What were they also lived in Michigan? And I had a great time in Michigan. I feel I feel oppressed at all. And I lived there some years ago, and I would imagine that there's less oppressive now oppression now than there was in the seventies. When I lived there, look, here's my here's my thing. Renee, here's my thing. In order to succeed. You gotta do three things. Finish highschool. Don't have a kid before you're twenty and get married before you have that kid. What is racism or sexism doing to prevent somebody from following that formula? Okay. Let me tell you seriously. Larry, I'm serious. I am serious. I am serious. I am serious. You come down to Arkansas. And this is happening. Definitely not only to African Americans. But white, okay. Tell tell me specifically what what do you mean? Rene excuse me. What do you mean by this is happening specifically, what is happening to black people in Arkansas? I just went to Arkansas gave a speech there. I came in came out. No, no cross. No in my hotel room. Pardon me. They don't have opportunities here. They don't have hope. It's a it's a poor state now because now because it's a poor state is one of the it's one of the poorest states in the union. Poverty is a problem. But to make it seem as if it's because of race. That's my issue. It's a poor state. Okay. Okay. Okay. I car that is the poverty is not merely because of ways and do the like sexism and classism probably the real the bigger issues we have in this country classism, and sexism racism is there. It's real. But you're right. It is not the driving force of poverty, and they're they're way more, and I'm sure this way more poor white people in Arkansas than there are poor black people. This is this is way more poor white people in this country than there are poor black people in the country. Where are you from originally? I'm originally from Detroit. And and and I assume you went to high school went to college did. Well, all the all the all the things that I'm sure you're telling your children to do. Yes. So why didn't why didn't the racism and sexism hold you back? Well, let me say well, okay. They did not hold me back because I was a natural born fighter, but that's not everybody. Larry was should we should we be encouraging everybody to be natural born fighters as opposed to saying, oh or how racist America is? Well, we should be encouraging everyone to discover their true character apps after absolutely absolutely. We should be telling everybody to invest in themselves. Your job is to do to good Goodhart hours of homework until you graduate from high school finish highschool. Don't have a kid before your twenty get married. I you will not before.
