Flying 3D printer drones work like bees to fix buildings

"A fleet of flying 3D printers has been designed to build and repair structures in-flight.
"The drones use building methods similar to bees and wasps and were developed by a team at the University of Bath.
"They could be used in manufacturing and construction in difficult-to-access places like on top of tall buildings, or dangerous locations to help with post-disaster relief construction."

When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:

* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.

And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.

Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

Cancer-killing virus shows promise in patients

"A new type of cancer therapy that uses a common virus to infect and destroy harmful cells is showing big promise in early human trials, say UK scientists.
One patient's cancer vanished, while others saw their tumours shrink.

"The drug is a weakened form of the cold sore virus - herpes simplex - that has been modified to kill tumours.

"Larger and longer studies will be needed, but experts say the injection might ultimately offer a lifeline to more people with advanced cancers."

Alzheimer's Might Not Actually Be a Brain Disease, Expert Says

"In July 2022, Science magazine reported that a key 2006 research paper, published in the prestigious journal Nature, which identified a subtype of brain protein called beta-amyloid as the cause of Alzheimer's, may have been based on fabricated data." ...
"When brain trauma occurs or when bacteria are present in the brain, beta-amyloid is a key contributor to the brain's comprehensive immune response. And this is where the problem begins."

Could Alzheimers be an immune problem?
