Studying naked mole-rats could be the key to breakthroughs in treating pain and cancer

  • Naked mole-rats can also move their lower incisors to manipulate objects, and have a large sensory area of their brains dedicated to their teeth in the same way that hands have dedicated brain space in humans.
  • Not content with just being immune to cancer, naked mole-rats are also impervious to some normally agonising chemical stimuli, such as capsaicin (the substance that makes chilli peppers taste hot) and acid (what gives lemon juice and vinegar their kick).
  • Scientists are now further studying the naked mole-rat to see whether we might be able to make the human pain system similarly impervious to acid pain.
  • The molecule responsible for insensitivity to acid in mole-rats also plays a role in human genetic conditions that drastically alter pain perception, and as a result of this convergent research, potential painkillers targeting this molecule have made it into clinical trials in humans.

Founder salaries, diversity tactics, fintech roboadvisors, and startups improving mental health

  • Founders have a right — as with any employee of a company — to a full salary, but how much is too little, and how much is too much?
  • Ron Miller interviewed a number of VCs and founders about how they approached this question.
  • Ed Sim, founder at Boldstart, an early stage enterprise startup investor in NYC says as an early check writer, he doesn’t want to see founders living high on the hog, but at the same time, they need enough money to live on, and that takes a bit of cash, say $100-150K a year to live in places like New York or San Francisco, the cities where companies tend to launch.
  • But while many founders, VCs, and others have good intentions, they can often struggle to determine the right approaches and tactics to improve outcomes.

NASA's Deep Space Atomic Clock leaves Earth on June 24th

  • NASA JPL's Deep Space Atomic Clock, the navigation clock that could lead to self-driving spacecraft, is finally heading to space.
  • At the moment, our spacecraft rely on a two-way relay system that needs to bounce signals to and from Earth-based atomic clocks to figure out where it is and where it's going.
  • The Deep Space Atomic Clock was designed live onboard a spacecraft and to calculate for its location and route using only signals it receives from Earth -- it doesn't need to bounce signals back anymore.
  • The technology could also be used to create a GPS-like network in other places, such as Mars, by having multiple spacecraft fitted with the device orbit the planet.
  • You can watch the first Deep Space Atomic Clock leave Earth aboard a Falcon Heavy on June 24th through NASA's livestream.

Kevin Carmichael: The idea that Canadians need oil and gas to make a living overlooks the data

  • The author of the email appeared to see sustainable finance as a Trojan horse that would destroy the oil and gas industry.
  • In the abstract, there are hundreds of thousands of ways to make a living at the moment, at least according to Statistics Canada’s latest quarterly report on job vacancies, an under-appreciated gauge of the economy’s health.
  • The number of openings in health care and social assistance increased by 19 per cent from the first quarter of 2018, to 61,860 unfilled positions, according to StatCan. The number of postings by companies in professional, scientific and technical services surged 28 per cent to almost 42,000.
  • Tech companies appear to accept that talent is at a premium, however; unfilled positions in that industry come with average hourly pay of $30.10, on par with oil-and-gas and four per cent higher than a year earlier.
