Pinterest Facebook Nucleus Biologics Launches Artificial Intelligence Research (NB-AIR): The World’s First AI Platform for Media Configuration That Gives Control Back To The Scientists Previous articleWalgreens and Uber Join Forces to Address Barriers to COVID-19 Vaccine EquityNext articleLA BAIE D’HUDSON ET NEO FINANCIAL ANNONCENT UN PARTENARIAT STRATÉGIQUE QUI OFFRE AUX CANADIENS UNE EXPÉRIENCE DE CRÉDIT NUMÉRIQUE PLUS AVANTAGEUSE Digital AIM Web Support Twitter WhatsApp Local NewsBusiness Facebook SAN DIEGO, Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Nucleus Biologics™, The Cell Performance Company™, today announced the availability of NB-AIR™, the world’s first Artificial Intelligence Research platform for optimizing cell culture formulations for cell and gene therapies. Leveraging cutting-edge AI algorithms, the system empowers scientists to create optimized formulas based on meta-analysis of peer-reviewed articles. AI guided formulations will allow scientists to improve the performance of their cell therapy and shorten the time to get these lifesaving therapies into patients faster. Cell and gene therapy in 2019 was a $1 Billion market and is estimated to be growing at 36% CAGR. Most cell therapy companies struggle to achieve reproducible potency in their cell therapies. The media used for in vitro cell growth have a documented impact on cell quality and hence therapeutic efficacy. Until now, scientists have had to rely on major suppliers who sell proprietary media formulations. These black box formulations limit the scientist’s ability to chemically modify their media. This slows down discovery and introduces supply chain risk. Until now, no tool existed that allowed scientists to research and select components and formulations based on current published knowledge on conditions that impact cell performance. “This is an industry transforming tool. Imagine being able to take months of research and reduce it to minutes through the power of machine learning. We are democratizing formulations enabling scientists to tap into the collective knowledge of their peers, become experts quickly and own their media formulation.” said David Sheehan, Founder, President and CEO of Nucleus Biologics. “Our vision is that we can create a constantly evolving technology ecosystem that allows therapy providers to create intellectual property that improves cell performance and reduces development time.” Initially targeted for developers of cell therapies, NB-AIR™ speeds formulation development by providing peer-tested compounds and formula recommendations based on cell type and critical quality attributes. It is directly connected to NB-Lux™, a cloud-based ordering and tracking portal, to allow online ordering of lot sizes from 2L to 2000L, allowing media scaled from bench to bioreactor. Further, changing even one component in your media can improve therapeutic yields, phenotype, and efficacy. Giving scientists the tools to optimize at a component level and control their media will help speed the time from discovery to cure. Media Contact: Michael Morgan [email protected], (858) 251-2010 About Nucleus Biologics Nucleus Biologics, The Cell Performance Company, is the leading provider of custom cell-growth media, tools, and technologies for cell and gene therapy. Their mission is to speed the time from scientific discovery to cure by delivering innovative, transparent and cGMP products and services with the goal of disrupting the market and eliminating antiquated practices and products. Ultimately, Nucleus Biologics strives to create a new paradigm that serves both scientists and clinicians, while reducing the environmental footprint of cell culture. www.nucleusbiologics.com View original content: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/nucleus-biologics-launches-artificial-intelligence-research-nb-air-the-worlds-first-ai-platform-for-media-configuration-that-gives-control-back-to-the-scientists-301224329.html SOURCE Nucleus Biologics Twitter TAGS WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Pinterest

Disabled Sailing Thailand founder Peter Jacobs hosted the June 30 party for 250 sailors and supporters at the Bang Saray Beach Club.Thai and foreign businesspeople raised about 75,000 baht for the Disabled Sailing Thailand project at a fundraiser in Bang Saray.Project founder Peter Jacobs hosted the June 30 party for 250 sailors and supporters at the Bang Saray Beach Club that included afternoon activities for children and adults, games and live music from Pattaya Rose and Barry Upton.Over 200 members of Thai and foreign business communities and friends joined the event.Later, over a buffet supplied by the beach club, an auction and lucky draw were held with prizes donated by supporters, including a 14-foot kayak.Proceeds from the raffle tickets and auction will go to the disabled-sailing project, which teaches the physically impaired to pilot sailboats on their own using watercraft outfitted with accessible equipment. One disabled sailor, Kasempol Hundee, said four men and two women are the first participants in the project, using two twin-set sailboats donated by Jacobs.They trained in the U.S. and Japan before competing in the Top of the Gulf regatta this year at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club, taking first and second place in their category among entrants from six countries.Future competitions are planned in Hong Kong and Spain, which they hope to join. Their ultimate goal is to compete in the Paralympics Games.Noi (2nd left) from Mickey Aussie Bar & Restaurant in Bang Saray chats with friends during the charity activity.Nantini “Nina” Dhoowa (left) is one of the outstanding Thai national sailing athletes.Three Thai national sailing male athletes from the Disabled Sailing Thailand and their lovely friends give thumbs up to the great project.The disabled-sailing project teaches the physically impaired to pilot sailboats on their own using watercraft outfitted with accessible equipment, including the SV 14 model shown here that is used in various competitions.
It wasn’t that the Monmouth Boat Club (MBC) hadn’t experienced and survived powerful storms in its 134-year history. Small indicator arrows showed water levels from previous hurricanes and winter storms and the worst was 32-inches high on the club’s first level.The Navesink River overtakes the Monmouth Boat Club at the start of Super Storm Sandy.Heck, the old timers drilled holes in the first deck so that when water came in or up, (the club sits right over the edge of the Navesink River), it drained away quickly. Usually, even after Hurricane Irene, a few hours with a hose and a mop and everything was back to normal.But Super Storm Sandy wasn’t a normal storm as everyone found out. As the club webmaster and photographer, I spent part of several days in and around MBC and the Navesink River before, during and after Super Storm Sandy. When I arrived the day the storm started, the river was angry and well up toward Union Street in our parking lot. But hey, we’ve been there before. Our docks and boats were secured up close to the Union Street fence and the water was usually less than a foot deep when it – rarely – got that far.However, the morning after the storm, the scene was something different. I was the first to work my way down to Union Street and, even though the club looked normal from a distance, some things were not right. Many of our docks – huge, heavy, stacked four high – were gone. One was lodged behind the Shrewsbury Ice Boat Club (how did that happen?), one was askew on the marina docks to the west and others could just be made out on the river’s north shore.But if the heavy docks askew gave a hint of the force of the storm, it only was a small hint. MBC’s incoming commodore Skip Bugbee was next to arrive and we waded to the north side of the clubhouse through waist-deep water along the Red Bank tennis court fence. The club’s river-facing doors had been removed prior to the storm to let water flow in and out quickly as there was no question we knew we’d see some water, but what we were greeted with was hard to describe and still hard to believe.MBC’s first floor – even though all the furniture had been moved to the upper level – showed the results of a massive river surge. We measured immediately and came up with 73 inches (6-feet, 1-inch) above the floor. Add to that the fact that the club is about 45 feet above mean high water and you can visualize the wave of Navesink River that rolled through MBC and up to the electrical panel and outside box that shorted and sparked but fortunately did not burn. The surge destroyed the furnace, hot water heater, commercial ice machine and ruined both the men’s and ladies’ restrooms.Added to that, all the pine walls were soaked along with insulation and although we didn’t realize it then, all had to be removed and scrapped.Surprisingly, a structural engineer who ventured under the club said we were still firm on our foundation; it was a pleasant surprise because the opposite would have been the kiss of death.In the months since Sandy, the club has begun to come back, slowly to say the least but on a steady pace toward the April 14 opening. A volunteer organization, MBC members have spent countless weekend hours working with the flag officers and Sandy Recovery Team to remove debris, tear out soaked paneling, remove bathroom fixtures, remove ceiling board to allow electrical contractors to rewire and build a back deck to permit the electric company to relocate the meter about 10 feet above the ground.Monmouth Boat Club members strip walls and ceilings from first floor bathrooms in preparation for a rebuild.Plans to move all the big stuff (furnace, hot water heater, ice machine, etc.) to the second and third levels was formulated. Interviewing contractors for what the members could not do and working with our insurance company for help all takes time. And, besides looking after the house, it took several weekends of scouring the west end of the Navesink River to find wayward docks and boats, a task made even harder as all the club’s workboats had been severely damaged during the storm.But as winter turns to spring, hope always springs eternal and opening day for MBC’s 134th season is here. We may not be 100 percent back but we will be close. Our women members may not be happy with the bathroom arrangements – expected to be in that condition until May – and thanks to our colleagues at the North Shrewsbury Ice Boat Club, we have been using their facilities and as clubhouse for meetings.As incoming vice commodore Pat Corr said recently, hammer in hand, “I have been a member of this club for decades. It has been here for more than a century. It is important to put this club back together the right way so our children and grandchildren can enjoy it as we have – we’re doing it right!” By Art PetrosemoloMember tells how boat club recovered for Sunday’s 134th-season opening
By John BurtonRED BANK – A members-only cigar luxury lounge and retail cigar shop is in the offing, contingent on the approval next month by the borough Zoning Board of Approval.SMS Ventures, LLC is hoping to develop the 22-24 West Front St. location for Le Malt Club, to serve as the lounge, including amenities on the ground floor with nine apartments on the upper levels of the property. The applicant is to appear before the zoning board on June 2.According to information filed with the borough’s Department of Planning and Zoning, the plan is for SMS Ventures to renovate the 3,600 square-foot site and establish the membership-required lounge area—a portion of which will permit on-site smoking in a space that will have a smoke filtration system. Food service will be available for members in a separate non-smoking area 24-hours-a-day. There will also be a retail shop, which principals are calling a cigar boutique, which will be open to the public.No alcoholic beverages will be served. The company will instead offer a BYO (bring your own) policy, allowing club members to stock their personal minibars and keep cigars in humidors for themselves and their guests, according to the narrative the applicant provided to the borough office.The location’s upper floors will have three one-bedroom apartments and six two-bedroom units.The Red Bank club would differ from the Le Malt Lounge in Colonia, which has been in business for more than a year. The north Jersey location promotes itself as a restaurant with alcohol table service (no bar), describing it as a brown spirit/wine lounge – one, which its website announces, features more than 1,000 different brown spirits, including especially rare and aged Scotch whiskies and a selection of 300 wines.But the Red Bank and Colonia locations will both have the same individual heading up the operations. The principal in this project is Saurabh Abrol, who has 100 percent ownership of SMS Ventures, LLC, and functions as chief executive officer for Le Malt Lounge in Colonia.Abrol is also CEO and president of Wine Chateau, an online and brick and mortar retail liquor operation. Wine Chateau was founded by Abrol’s father, Arun Abrol, in 1994 and currently operates retail establishments in Metuchen, Piscataway, Colonia and Matawan.Neither Saurabh Abrol nor his attorney, Rick Brodsky, responded to phone calls seeking comment for this story.The 22-24 West Front St. property, owned in equal parts by Richard Stavola of Jupiter, Florida and Rumson resident Rim Lindau, is currently vacant on the first floor retail space, having previously been used for a salon and yoga studio.SMS Ventures would require the zoning board to approve a use variance for this technically non-permitted use, as well as needing 48 parking spaces for the commercial and residential uses.A cigar club has been tried before in the borough’s downtown commercial district. The now-defunct Ashes, 33 Broad St., now the home of Char Steakhouse, had operated as a private club, with a restaurant and bar open to the public. That spot, however, came under fire from both local and state officials and the subject of bitter acrimony among its owners. The business became bogged down in lawsuits among its owners resulting in it being placed in court-appointed receivership. State tax officials shut down the location for a time for failing to pay sales tax, and state Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) officials alleged impropriety with the liquor license ownership.
Brandi MorinAPTN National NewsDozens of out of control wildfires have forced the mandatory evacuation of more than 3,000 people from their homes in northern Alberta.The Bigstone Cree Nation (BCN) located near Lake Wabasca 320 kilometres north of Edmonton stated in a release Tuesday that the fire was started by a burning vehicle last Saturday on the reserve transfer site.Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development ordered the evacuation of the BCN and Wabasca starting last Sunday.The Municipal District of Opportunity established reception centers for all evacuees in the Hamlet of Calling Lake and the County of Athabasca.“The MD and Bigstone Cree Nation are very grateful for offers of assistance from the public and outside agencies,” read the statement.“At this time, the evacuees are supplied with necessities and the Wabasca and BCN Fire Department are well supplied with equipment and manpower. Provincial agencies and an animal welfare agency are also on scene.”The RCMP has approximately 50 members on scene to secure the community.BCN resident Nicole Auger fled the community with four members of her family, including her sister who is pregnant and her aunt who has liver and kidney issues.At the time they left, the Red Cross was not yet set up in nearby evacuation sites to accommodate their needs.The BCN sent them to stay at a hotel in Edmonton.“It’s all very tiring and surreal,” she said of suddenly packing up and leaving home.Augers father stayed behind, and told her over the phone that the smoke in Wabasca is not very prevalent yet.“He’s kind of being stubborn and won’t leave. But he said you can’t see the fire. ” she said.According to the release from the province of Alberta, a total of 3,750 Wabasca hamlet and reserve residents are registered as evacuees.Last night 630 people were housed in reception centres in Calling Lake and Athabasca and another 400 people are either camping in Calling Lake or staying with family and friends there. Approximately 100 people with special needs are being lodged in hotels as far away as Westlock.On Tuesday the Friendship Centre in Slave Lake, home to the 2011 tragic fires that wiped out over a 1/3 of the town, opened its doors to evacuees.Alberta Government wildfire information officer, Geoffery Driscoll said that wildfires are a natural part of Alberta’s landscape and something that happens all the time.On average the province sees about 1,500 wildfires a year and the north is no stranger to them.The main cause of wildfires are from lightning and overly dry conditions.“We can’t do much about the fires that we’re going to have to fight, there’s no choice there,” said Driscoll.However, it’s the human caused fires that could be prevented that end up causing an extra burden for firefighters.On Monday the government enacted a province wide open-fire ban. This type of ban was last implemented in 2011 during the disastrous Slave Lake fire.About 40 fighters as well as helicopters, air tankers and heavy equipment are working around the clock to contain the fire near Wabasca.“The fire that’s near Wabasca and the Bigstone Cree Nation hasn’t grown much in the past day thanks in part to the work of firefighters in that area. They’ve been able to get in front of it and put a fire guard around most of that fire. It’s still considered out of control, but we’re going to see what happens in the warmth of the day and see if the firefighters can continue to contain that fire,” said Driscoll.There are currently about 60 fires burning across Alberta, 50 of which were started just last night by lightning, 19 of them are listed as out of control.Today the Alberta government’s provincial operations center in Edmonton opened in response to the out of control [email protected]
