If you've looked into the controversy regarding the use of ivermectin for treating COVID-19 , chances are you've come across links to a site called c19ivermectin.com (or one of its many relatives) that claims to host a regularly updated aggregation of all the latest studies into a single meta-analysis of the effects of the drug. We here at Ars have been asked—by email, in the comments, and via our feedback form—to check out c19ivermectin.com, which purports to provide evidence ivermectin is an effective therapy. So we have. And we're suggesting you don't, because it's not a reliable source of information. We want an old drug Why is anyone talking about ivermectin at all? Early on in the pandemic, before the development of effective vaccines, there was a rush to find treatments that could be rapidly rolled out to the public. As such, researchers focused on testing drugs that were already approved for other problems, since this would lower the regulatory hurdles and safety … [Read more...] about The anonymous meta-analysis that’s convincing people to use ivermectin

A Rwandan court on Monday sentenced Paul Rusesabagina — portrayed in the 2004 film Hotel Rwanda — to 25 years in prison on charges of terrorism. “Rusesabagina … is convicted of being a member of a terror group and participating in terror activities but he is acquitted of creating an illegal armed group,” judge Antoine Muhima said on September 20. Rwandan state prosecutors originally sought a life sentence for Rusesabagina on nine charges including terrorism, forming an armed rebel group, taking hostages, and arson. The 67-year-old was ultimately convicted of just eight charges. Rusesabagina is a leading member of the Rwanda Movement for Democratic Change (MRCD), a group opposed to Rwandan President Paul Kagame’s rule. Judges in Rusesabagina’s case said the MRCD is indistinguishable from the group’s armed wing, known as the National Liberation Front (FLN), and officially referred to the organization as the “MRCD-FLN.” Rusesabagina acknowledged his role in the MRCD’s … [Read more...] about ‘Hotel Rwanda’ Inspiration Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison for Terrorism

As we reported yesterday , Fivetran 's deal to acquire HVR Software helped spur a new round of funding that has multiplied the firm's valuation to over $5 billion. We had a chance to speak with CEO George Fraser to get a better idea of what the deal will mean for the company's roadmap. Fivetran's claim to fame was being designed for the cloud. It is a cloud-based data transformation service that performs ELT (extract/load/transform) -- that is, where the data transformation is performed inside the database. The going notion is that cloud storage and compute cycles are sufficiently inexpensive to move all data transformation in-database, thereby simplifying the architecture, reducing overhead, and taking advantage of the cloud's sheer scale. The core of Fivetran's base has been the masses of customers introduced to data warehousing for the first time with services such as Amazon Redshift and Snowflake . These customers typically worked with Excel spreadsheets … [Read more...] about Will HVR be Fivetran’s gateway to the enterprise?
Why it matters: For years, companies like Google and Facebook have been exploring ways to bring Internet connectivity solutions to people in remote areas around the world. The latest attempt uses 20 Gbps wireless optical links that were developed for Google's Project Loon to connect communities where fiber infrastructure is too complex and expensive to implement. Google has explored plenty of daring projects over the years, but most of them never see any commercial implementation beyond a few trial runs . That's because the company has cultivated a culture of embracing failure as a way to test ideas and quickly kill the terrible ones before they suck in too many resources. A notable example comes to mind -- Project Loon, which was dissolved in January after Google found that sending helium balloons into the stratosphere to distribute wireless internet to more than a billion people living in remote areas wasn't commercially viable. However, some underlying technology … [Read more...] about Alphabet’s Project Taara beamed 700TB of fiber-like Internet with 99.9 percent uptime
