Martha Carlin married the love of her life in 1995. She and John Carlin had dated briefly in college in Kentucky, then lost touch until a chance meeting years later at a Dallas pub. They wed soon after and had two children. John worked as an entrepreneur and stay-at-home dad. In his free time, he ran marathons.Almost eight years into their marriage, the pinky finger on John’s right hand began to quiver. So did his tongue. Most disturbing for Martha was how he looked at her. For as long as she’d known him, he’d had a joy in his eyes. But then, she says, he had a stony stare, “like he was looking through me.” In November 2002, a doctor diagnosed John with Parkinson’s disease. He was 44 years old.Carlin made it her mission to understand how her seemingly fit husband had developed such a debilitating disease. “The minute we got home from the neurologist, I was on the internet looking for answers,” she recalls. She began consuming all of the … [Read more...] about A gut-brain link for Parkinson’s gets a closer look

Ever since the global economic crisis of 2008, the financial services industry has become entangled in an ever-increasing web of regulation. Few would argue that increased control is unnecessary, following a crash that cost the global economy somewhere between $60trn and $200trn. But the drain on businesses is immense.The number of rule changes that global financial institutions must track on a daily basis has trebled since 2011, to an average of almost 200 per day*. Meanwhile, banks like HSBC have quadrupled their compliance head count to around 7,000 people in less than 10 years, at a cost of around $1bn globally. You get the feeling that there has to be a better way.No surprise then that the software industry has stepped in, seeing the smorgasbord of regulation as an opportunity to carve out a whole new category of technology solution: RegTech. According to the FCA, RegTech applies to “new technologies developed to help overcome regulatory challenges in financial … [Read more...] about RegTech: the saviour of financial services?

Jimrod (Posts: 1575; Member since: 22 Sep 2014) The title doesn't say the 4" iPhone "won" though does it? It isn't a black or white result - According to the poll 783 people on this site WOULD be interested in a new 4" iPhone, which is "quite a few" as the title says, just because others might not it doesn't make those opinions invalid. posted on 02 Mar 2016, 12:55 1 42.

Refinements that make for a fantastic upgrade By Chris Welch on October 13, 2016 11:00 am @chriswelch 37 Fujifilm’s X-T2 is the perfect mirrorless camera for photo geeks. It seems like that’s true of every camera that Fujifilm releases, but the X-T2 is a refined sequel to the X-T1 that improves on its predecessor in the ways that matter most: resolution, autofocus, and ease of use. It’s still got all the manual control dials and stunning electronic viewfinder that lured photographers to the X-T1. At $1,599 (or $1,899 with a bundled 18-55mm lens), it’s actually more expensive than the X-T1’s original starting price. But as soon as it’s actually in stock somewhere again, I’ll be getting one. After weeks of trying out the X-T2, I’ve come to trust it like few cameras I’ve used previously — even counting full-frame DSLRs. There are still scenarios where $3,000 Canon and Nikon cameras can handily best Fujifilm, but the … [Read more...] about Fujifilm X-T2 review: for the love of photography
