Major victory for Catalyst against HBC take-private deal as OSC delays shareholder vote

  • In their recommendation to the panel, OSC staff said they were concerned with testimony from special committee chair David Leith, who told the OSC that Baker informed the board of directors in late March that he was thinking about buying the company, while the Signa deal was still in flux.
  • But the special committee wasn’t formally tasked with supervising the privatization process until June 9, a day before two press releases — one announcing the Signa sale, the other announcing Baker’s take-private bid — were released within minutes of each other.
  • Baker’s group of majority shareholders is offering $10.30 per share in the deal, which has been approved by the HBC board of director’s special committee in charge of vetting the privatization bid.

Genetic testing is an inexact science with real consequences

  • And as more people submit their DNA to genetic testing companies, and more law enforcement and government agencies figure out ways to use this deeply personal genetic information, it could be used against us.
  • Hazel says some of the biggest genetics testing companies, like 23andMe and Ancestry, have signed on to a list of best practices, a policy framework created by the Future Privacy Forum, which includes both consumer and industry advocacy groups.
  • In one recent high-profile case, authorities were able to track down the Golden State serial killer after four decades by using DNA from his third cousin and fourth cousins, who had voluntarily uploaded their DNA test results to GEDMatch, a public site where people go to find long-lost relatives — and a resource that police rely on to help investigate crimes.

The shape of chemical functions

  • In chemistry, there is little room to doubt that shapes of molecules have some role to determine their function.
  • While those shapes are much more complex than everyday’s objects, how far does the structure of a protein inform about its role in the body?
  • If shape information determines the function of a molecule, it should be possible to build a highly accurate predictive model relying only on shape features.
  • Because we can only test for a single chemical reaction at a time, we simplify the question and attempt to predict whether a molecule will perform an exact function.
  • In order to use this shape information in a predictive model, we need to extract features from the graph.
  • Nonetheless, it’s noticeable that little chemical information beyond shape is necessary to approach state-of-the-art performance.

If Logged into Facebook, Oculus VR Data Will Now Be Used for Ads

  • The day is here some VR enthusiasts feared would arrive when Facebook acquired Oculus VR in 2014 for billions of dollars as “Facebook will now use information about your Oculus activity, like which apps you use, to help provide…more relevant content, including ads” — assuming you’ve connected your Oculus ID to your Facebook account.
  • With this most recent change “If you choose not to log into Facebook on Oculus, we won’t share data with Facebook to allow third parties to target advertisements to you based on your use of the Oculus Platform,” according to Facebook.
  • A: If you log into Facebook on Oculus, Facebook will use information related to your profile, presence, and activity on the Oculus Platform to provide and improve your product experience across the Facebook family of apps.
  • A: We’re updating the Oculus Privacy Policy to explain that social features are provided by Facebook and to explain how Oculus data is shared with Facebook to inform ads when you log into Facebook on Oculus.
