Dr. Paul Knoepfler, a recognized stem cell and genetics researcher, author and blogger, just returned for another AMA Series on Reddit. There, he answered questions on the latest gene editing and modification technology called CRISPR and its implications on medical science and ethics.

He begins by noting the significance of the CRISPR technique, saying, “It is totally changing how we scientists genetically modified cells and even organisms. What used to take years and potentially millions of dollars can be done in weeks or months for a few thousand bucks. In my lab, we use CRISPR to do research on stem cells and cancer. Others are doing similar work for a variety of other conditions, while some are making new GMOs in record time…”

While the technology continues to transform the way people see and approach science, it also raises the need for proper education regarding the discovery.

Knoepfler fielded questions like, how does it work; can the world draw a line between human enhancement and designer babies; is eugenics now a reality; does CRISPR offer benefits for people who are already born; what is the real potential of this gene editing technology...and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Potential and Implications

The series gives a thorough and in-depth explanation on what CRISPR can do and, more importantly, the ethical questions that the existence of this technology raises.

“There quite a lot of potential for gene editing via CRISPR in adults. The challenge is that unlike germline editing, genetic modification of adults can only reach some of our cells. Still it could be use for gene therapy in adults for certain genetic diseases, either alone or in combination with cell therapy,” he explains.

He does note that this will be rather difficult to implement in older people, however, "It's hard to cure a genetic disease in adults because every cell pretty much has the mutation(s). There might be hopes for effective treatments. Already gene therapy shows exciting promise for specific diseases and that can be done in the future with CRISPR and it could be done in older people. Much boils down to risk versus benefit. Another big issue is how to deliver/ conduct the CRISPR-based gene therapy in adults?"

Knoepfler, who has openly expressed his desire to put a moratorium on human modification, goes on to say that, “If [a] genetic modification could be proven to be safe and effective (very tough tasks) at genetic disease prevention, that would be the first step toward my being able to support it.”

He notes that it will all come down to the data supporting the safety and efficacy of the technology, which then presents new and even more difficult questions to answer—“Is the gene editing approach better somehow than the much safer embryo screening approaches (e.g. PGD)? Is the technology only available to the rich? Do we know that the genetic modification correcting the disease in question doesn't cause some other problem?” he cites as examples.

When asked about designer babies, he says that he understands the notable things that DNA editing could provide us, but advises caution: "In most cases, parents would simply want the best chance for a healthy child. Given human nature, though, a significant even if minority fraction would probably given in temptation if the same clinic doing the disease prevention work offered 'a la carte' enhancement options. It could start off simply as, 'we can provide you a healthy baby most likely and by the way, would you prefer a boy or girl? Green, blue or brown eyes?' This could be done via embryo screening rather than modification, or both. What about height? Muscles? Etc."

Which famous line from Jaws was ad-libbed?

A. “I used to hate the water.”

B. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

C. “All this machine does is swim, and eat, and make little sharks.”

D. “You know, a thing about a shark, he’s got…lifeless eyes. Black eyes, like a doll’s eyes!”

Answer: “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

Bonus fact: First of all, the line was “You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” not “we’re,” as it’s often misquoted. The line wasn’t in the original script but was an inside joke among the Jaws crew, teasing the stingy producers for picking a support boat that was too small to hold the equipment.

Killexams : Answer Angel: Repairs for a designer purse

Dear Answer Angel Ellen: I have a beautiful Bottega Veneta purse in need of repair. Do you know of anyone who does this kind of work? — Pat S.

Dear Pat: For an expensive bag like that, you’ll want a skilled shoe-repair expert. This is something an old-school repair shop can handle. An internet search will guide you to one near you. Also, you could contact Bottega Veneta customer support for guidance.

Dear Answer Angel Ellen: I have heard recently that visible panty lines are back in style and men find them attractive. Especially when wearing athletic pants, what would you recommend? Spanx, thongs or just forgetting it all and going commando? While I want to be comfortable, I also want to feel sexy. Please help! — V.M.

Dear V.M.: Humans’ ideas of what’s sexy cover a lot of territory. You’re on you own on this one! It’s a very long list. Much easier to come up with a list of what’s not sexy.

Angelic readers

My question asking you to tell me the must-haves you carry in your pocket and purse produced a huge number of responses — including some intriguing, unexpected ones:

Susan L.: “A chestnut. My Hungarian grandmother, who raised me, said it would ward off cancer. She lived to age 98 free of cancer. I’m 72. Who knows? Maybe it works. But in any case, it reminds me of her love.”

Alyce B.: “An olive-stuffer tool to put blue cheese in olives for a martini when a restaurant only has pimento ones.”

Teresa L.: “I never feel fully dressed without earrings and almost never forget to put them on. But that once-in-a-blue-moon I do happen to forget, it is so worth it to have them in my purse in a pinch! My recommendation: Choose an inexpensive pair that aren’t your favorite but that are neutral and presentable enough to throw on in an emergency.”

Bobbie W.: “My husband’s business card and my son’s business card. Their phone numbers circled. For emergency purposes. Never had to use them, but they make me feel safer.” From Ellen: You also can designate them as emergency contacts on your cellphone. Many states’ driver's license agencies maintain an emergency-contact database.

Karen W.: “McCormick Old Bay Seasoning. Couldn’t imagine enjoying seafood chowder at Cliffs of Mohr or fish and chips at Guinness in Dublin without it. I wish McCormick would develop a convenient travel size.”

Peggy E.: “A tiny half-ounce bottle of Visine eye drops because it takes almost no space and has saved me discomfort and looking like a red-eyed weirdo.”

Jody S.: “A ‘silver’ stone with the word ‘MIRACLE’ written on it. My husband is a leukemia survivor, and 20 years ago he had a bone marrow transplant, from a matched, unrelated donor. It was, and continues to be, a miracle. We are blessed every day.”

Ellen G.: “Chocolate. Once I was stuck in an elevator for three hours with four strangers. That box of wrapped chocolates helped us become friends and survive the ordeal.”

Karen: “Well actually, I’m like Betty White; I carry an extra pair of panties, because you never know if there might be an oversight!! Lol.”

And these: Plastic knife to cut when sharing an on-the-go meal (Marg B.). Auto-insurance card “in case the glove compartment is smashed in an accident” (Neil S.).

Killexams : Theater

“Acts of Faith” at the Aurora Fox

If acting is reacting, then it might seem that a solo performer is robbed of something, someone concrete to respond to. And yet when a solo piece works well, it is a marvel.

The Aurora Fox production of playwright David Yee’s “Acts of Faith” – receiving its U.S. premiere – is that kind of feat.

Betty Hart plays Faith, a Zambian 13-year-old mistaken for a prophet for reasons that are too good to spoil here. Still, you should know this about the teenager: She likes to tell jokes with seemingly religious set-ups and clever punchlines. She learned that from her mother, whom she quotes. “Faith, the best way to get people to listen is to bless them with laughter.” And the beats and shifts of this one act are often signaled by a fresh joke.

Hart captures Faith’s youthful hamminess. The kid likes an audience and relates her tales with well-timed asides and wisecracks. But when things turn hard – and they do – Faith doesn’t become an unreliable narrator so much as a teenager who is telling and wrestling with the meaning of her story simultaneously.

When Faith’s devout Christian mother learns her daughter tricked people into believing she had performed a miracle, she can’t suppress her disappointment. Priests had told her mother she’d never get pregnant after two miscarriages, and Faith was her “miracle child.” Now, her mother’s friends and fellow parishioners in Kitwe agree that Faith is a miracle child because she’d performed one. Only she hadn’t.

Confession proves a central and rich conceit in “Acts of Faith.” The structure of solo performances dovetails nicely with the sense that the audience is being confided in.

The weight of her mother’s disappointment leads Faith to travel to a nearby city where she plans to confess her transgression. While visiting family, she attends a church where she’s struck by a vision: “Blond hair, short and kind of messy. Tan skin. But not farmer tan, like Hollywood tan. Piercing blue eyes. Nice toned arms. Big, powerful hands. A tattoo.” Surely, God means for Faith to confess her hoax to this visiting priest.

It is during confession to “Father Hot Stuff” that Faith’s sense of security and budding autonomy are betrayed. Yee handles what takes place between the priest and Faith with deft allusion – and turpentine. The smell of turpentine oil becomes a sickening sense memory.

What follows Faith’s assault is intricately plotted. Faith — the stuff of things not seen but also the stuff of familial bonds — becomes a pronounced theme. In the play’s final scenes, which find Faith living in Toronto, Yee boldly teases the meetings of fact and mystery, fate and agency.

The playwright wrote this one-act for Toronto’s Factory Theatre so it could be filmed during the pandemic. Brandon Case’s set for the Aurora Fox’s smaller Studio Theatre hews to that simplicity. Arched, stained-glass windows suggest grace and place. A long bench adjacent to the walls resembles a pew. Nothing on stage detracts from Hart’s performance, from Faith’s smart-alecky or disquieting revelations. Director Pesha Rudnick and Hart forge an unwavering intimacy between Faith and her listeners. Her journey is a thing to behold.

This is the final weekend of “Acts of Faith,” and you might consider rearranging your plans to catch it before Faith and her vital lessons vanish.

“Alma” at the Curious Theatre Company

Although the title of Benjamin Benne’s play might suggest that it, too, is a one-person show, “Alma” is very much a two-hander about what belonging means to an undocumented, single mother and her U.S. citizen teenager. As Alma and Angel, Laura Chavez and Iliana Lucero Barron bring a sweet and tart tension to the Curious Theatre Company production, directed by visiting artist Denise Evette Serna. It runs through Feb. 19.

The play takes place in the one-bedroom apartment that the two share in La Puende, Calif., east of Los Angeles. “Puende,” Alma reminds her daughter, means bridge. The name was one of the reasons she was attracted to and hopeful about the town.

For its 25th season, Curious has programmed plays that have asked – and offered different replies to – the question “What does it mean to be an American?” In a California apartment complex, the two women grapple with their own answers to that question.

It’s the night before Angel is supposed to take the SATs. Years earlier, Angel and Alma made a shared list of dreams and goals – 16 of them to be exact, plus a few later added amendments. One of the items on the list was Angel scoring 2400 on the college entrance exam. That the combined score of the test has since changed is something Angel points out a few times.

Another item on the list was that Angel would go to UC-Davis to study veterinary medicine. Angel is rethinking that, too. Yes, dreams change, shared goals diverge, especially those freighted ones parents harbor for their children.

When Alma arrives home eager to help her daughter with a flash-card deck, the teenager isn’t there. She should be studying. When Angel sneaks in, drunkenly, Alma has a gotcha moment. The director skillfully plies the play’s many notes of parent-teen humor: the fibs, the backtalk, the gentle guilt-tripping. The jabs and jests here have an extra layer of hurt because Alma and Angel don’t have equal status in the law.

That the play is set in December 2016 adds a special tension to what transpires. Having espoused anti-Mexican rhetoric during his campaign, Donald Trump will be sworn in as president in the next few weeks, a fact that weighs on Alma enough that she has consulted a friend’s immigration lawyer. (Early on, Angel smartly points out that Barack Obama was called the “deporter-in-chief” for a reason.)

The nasal drone of the president-elect emanates from the television set. But a National Geographic show about elephants also figures in, bringing with it questions of mourning and memory. At times, the TV set seems to have a mind of its own. The sky outside the apartment window is also treated as a character rife with meaning.

With projections and sound design by El Armstrong, the play utilizes faint magical-realist gestures. The blare coming from the TV emphasizes the too-riven politics of immigration and borders; the expanse of the nighttime sky reframes questions of time and borders and being human.

But even with that sky turning from orange to starry and evoking the cosmos, “Alma” traverses the playful and the serious of two souls navigating their place and time. Over the evening, mother and daughter reformulate their relationship to each other. They share and bicker. When Alma resorts to la chancla (a flip-flop) to discipline Angel, the play flip-flops the gesture, turning it into something tender and knowingly humorous. But when each woman weeps – for overlapping reasons and at different moments – their tears remind us that so much is at stake for Alma, Angel and the country in which they live and love.

Killexams : Google now wants to answer your questions without links and with AI. Where does that leave publishers?

Feb. 7, 2023, 11:51 a.m.

A dozen years ago, Eric Schmidt forecast the AI pivot that’s playing out this week. And the questions it prompts — around the link economy, fair use, and aggregation — are more real than ever.

If you stick around long enough, even the most exotic future turns into the present.

At least that’s what I thought when I remembered an old piece I wrote here at Nieman Lab all the way back in 2011 — one that seems newly relevant today.

It was about an on-stage interview that then-Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt gave to Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at what was then the annual All Things Digital conference. They cover a lot of then-hot topics, from Google losing to Facebook on “the friend thing” to whether it should buy Twitter. But there’s one stretch that stood out, then and now, as having outsized importance to news companies.

Mossberg started out by ragging on the declining quality of Google’s search results:

Speaking as a consumer, I find my Google search results to be more and more polluted with junk that I don’t want to see or that doesn’t seem relevant.

Is your basic algorithmic approach — which was so successful and so different from everybody else, in PageRank — still the right way to go?

Or is there some opportunity for somebody to come in and do to you what you did to Altavista?

(Altavista being the web’s leading search engine circa 1998, before Google ate its lunch.)

Schmidt defends the quality of Google’s results, but then pivots:

But the other thing that we’re doing that’s more strategic is we’re trying to move from answers that are link-based to answers that are algorithmically based, where we can actually compute the right answer. And we now have enough artificial intelligence technology and enough scale and so forth that we can, for example, provide you — literally compute the right answer.

Anything sound familiar there? Google has built an empire by “polluting” its search results with ads. Its defenses may seem impenetrable, but it has one potential point of weakness: a competitor who’d be able to provide users answers rather than links to websites that might have answers.

At 1 p.m. ET today, Microsoft is holding a press event at which it is expected to unveil a new version of its search engine, Bing, that incorporates ChatGPT, the fairly astonishing conversational, generative AI unveiled late last year. If a leaked version is to be believed, the new Bing is built around this promise: “Ask real questions. Get complete answers.” Along with traditional search results, you’ll also be able to chat with “your AI-powered answer engine.” The new Bing is part of Microsoft’s massive $10 billion investment into ChatGPT’s maker, OpenAI.

Google could see this coming, of course, so it tried to get ahead of the news yesterday by announcing its own AI-powered chatbot, Bard. It’s available to “trusted testers” now, becoming “more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.”

(Amusingly enough, even back in that 2011 interview, it was Bing that Mossberg argued was already ahead of Google in giving direct answers to search queries. Schmidt even agreed, “in some narrow cases.”)

This is all extraordinarily exciting stuff — the most important shift in consumer technology since the iPhone, I’d wager. In my nearly 30 years on the Internet, I’ve never been less confident predicting what it’ll all look like in a year or two. Will these new interfaces simply mean a modest improvement in 5% or 10% of our search requests? Or will AI become the dominant way we interact with information online? At the rate of improvement we’re seeing — “the scale of the largest AI computations is doubling every six months, far outpacing Moore’s Law” — putting any cap on the possibilities feels perilous.

But there’s a more narrow matter, of interest to the news business, that we can foresee. Right now, in lieu of those direct “answers,” Google sends a lot of traffic to news sites — more than any other external source by far. Newsrooms spend time and money figuring out a lot of those answers, and the reward they’ve traditionally reaped for them has been web traffic, monetized through ads.

But the more questions Google answers without a click, the less traffic those “answering” news sites will get. Less traffic means fewer ad impressions, which means lower revenue.

As I put it back in 2011:

The kind of shift Schmidt is talking about — from “link-based” to “algorithmically based” — could have a big impact on publishers in the business of providing answers to searchers’ questions. And not just the Demand Medias of the world who are attached at the neck to search — traditional publishers too.

In 2011, these were the sort of questions that Google felt confident enough to answer without a link. They were all based on structured data, mostly hard numbers.

But even then, it was clear that their range would grow:

For now, Google’s ability to answer questions directly is bound by the sorts of things its algorithms can know. But they’ll get smarter — and Schmidt’s comments make clear it’s a strategic goal of the company to ensure they get smarter. So imagine a point in the near future where Google can provide direct answers to questions like:

What time is Modern Family on?

Who are the Republicans running for president?

What red blouses are on sale at Macy’s?

Who’s the backup left tackle for the New Orleans Saints?

Modern Family is long gone, but Google will tell you directly when Abbott Elementary is on. And it’s happy to let Macy’s buy some ad space to talk about their red blouses. But it’ll still rely on links for G.O.P. candidates and the Saints offensive line.

ChatGPT, in its current public form, isn’t connected to the open internet and is only trained on information up to 2021, so it isn’t great on current events. (A rival generative AI, from Anthropic, tried to tell me Terron Armstead plays tackle for the Saints. Alas, if only.) But both Google and Microsoft have said their bots will be able to draw on the entire web, in real time — so their results will likely be strong.

Let’s go back to 2011 for a minute. Things like TV schedules, team rosters, and announced presidential candidates are still structured data — the sort of thing that didn’t seem too far out of reach even then. But what about the next level of difficulty?

And imagine, further down the line, that Google’s AI improves to the point where it can answer questions like these:

Did Dallas city council approve that zoning change last night?

Was the stimulus package too small to be effective?

What’s going to replace the Space Shuttle program?

Which is Terrence Malick’s best movie?

Did Osama bin Laden really use his wife as a human shield?

Is the new My Morning Jacket album any good?

Some of those are complex enough that Google probably wouldn’t be able to provide a single definitive answer, the way it can with a database of census data. But it’s not hard to imagine it could provide a Metacritic-like look at the summary critical opinion of the My Morning Jacket record, or an analysis of customer reviews of Malick’s DVDs at Amazon. It could dip into the growing sea of public data about government activity to tell you what happened at city council (and maybe figure out which parts of the agenda were important, based on news stories, community bloggers, and social media traffic). It could gather up articles from high-trust news and government sources on NASA and algorithmically combine them into just as much info as the searcher wants. It’s a shift in the focus of Google’s judgment; websites shift from competitors to be ranked against each other to data sources to be diced and analyzed to figure out an answer.

I asked each of those questions to ChatGPT this morning. It…did pretty well. It nailed these two:

What’s going to replace the Space Shuttle program?

The Space Shuttle program was officially retired in 2011 and was replaced by the Commercial Crew Program. The Commercial Crew Program is a NASA initiative aimed at outsourcing the design, development, and operation of spacecraft for human space transportation to low Earth orbit. The program was created to provide reliable and safe access to the International Space Station (ISS) for both NASA astronauts and international partners.

The two companies that were selected to participate in the program are Space and Boeing. SpaceX’s spacecraft, the Crew Dragon, has already completed multiple successful missions to the IS, and Boeing’s spacecraft, the CST-100 Starliner, is currently in the testing and certification phase

These new spacecraft are designed to be more cost-effective and efficient compared to the Space Shuttle, and they are expected to provide reliable and safe transportation for astronauts to the ISS for many years to come.

Did Osama bin Laden really use his wife as a human shield?

Yes, reports indicate that Osama bin Laden used his wife as a human shield during the raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2, 2011. According to the official account of the raid, bin Laden’s wife, Amal al-Sadah, was shot in the leg as she was used as a shield by bin Laden in an attempt to protect himself. The incident was reported by various news sources, including US government officials, and was later confirmed in the investigation of the raid.

It was useful, if equivocal, on these:

Which is Terrence Malick’s best movie?

Terrence Malick is a highly regarded filmmaker, and his works are often considered some of the best in the industry. It is subjective to name one specific film as his “best”, as it depends on personal taste and interpretation. However, some of his most highly acclaimed works include:

• “The Tree of Life” (2011)
• “Badlands” (1973)
• “Days of Heaven” (1978)

These films are often cited as some of the best in his filmography, and they showcase his unique style, beautiful cinematography, and themes of nature and spirituality.

Was the stimulus package too small to be effective?

The effectiveness of the stimulus package is a matter of debate and depends on various economic, political, and social factors. Some economists argue that the stimulus package was too small to have a significant impact on the economy, as it did not provide enough support to those who were most affected by the economic downturn.

Others argue that the size of the stimulus package was appropriate given the constraints of the political and economic environment at the time. They argue that the package provided enough support to help stabilize the economy and prevent it from collapsing further, while also providing funding for important infrastructure projects and programs that helped create jobs and stimulate growth.

Ultimately, the effectiveness of the stimulus package is difficult to quantify and measure, and it depends on a variety of factors and perspectives.

ChatGPT didn’t know what the “latest” My Morning Jacket album is, so I asked it specifically about their most accurate release as of 2011:

Is the album “Circuital” by My Morning Jacket good?

“Circuital” is the sixth studio album by My Morning Jacket, released in 2011. The album received generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised its mix of eclectic musical styles and the band’s ability to craft compelling and atmospheric songs.

Many fans of the band consider “Circuital” to be one of the strongest albums in their discography, and it is often praised for its cohesive sound and memorable songs. The album was also well-received commercially, reaching the top 30 on the Billboard 200 chart and earning positive reviews from many well-known music publications.

Ultimately, whether or not “Circuital” is a good album is subjective and depends on personal taste. If you are a fan of My Morning Jacket’s music or enjoy a mix of rock, alternative, and psychedelic influences, it is worth checking out.

(“Cohesive sound and memorable songs” is some pretty non-specific praise, it should be noted, and the album actually hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200, not “just” the top 30.)

The last question — “Did Dallas city council approve that zoning change last night?” — is one ChatGPT can’t currently answer, being informationally stuck in 2021. But again, Google and Microsoft won’t have that problem. And for local news organizations, tech companies’ ability to get questions like that right will be critical. Local information, gathered by local reporters, can be exceptionally valuable in the right contexts. Will search engines be able to ingest that knowledge and chat it back out to users without sending even a pageview the publisher’s way?

The debates (and lawsuits) around the ethics of AI-generated images ask similar questions. (Though training an image AI to learn the style of an artist seems distinct from training a chat AI to take specific facts from a publication. “How do you write a city council story?” ≠ “What did city council do last night?”) Does this sort of amalgamation differ, legally or ethically, from the indexing of content that search engines have always done? As publishers around the world have sought hush money, er, I mean compensation from Google, the company’s reply has been simple: But we send you all this traffic! Does the conversation change as that becomes decreasingly true? Or will Google, seeing that risk, decide to focus on the more strategic universe of non-local information, reasoning the legal and PR risks are lower when you’re summarizing Wikipedia than The Hometown Gazette?

Who knows? Not me. 2011 me didn’t know either:

These things aren’t right around the corner — they quickly get to be really complicated AI problems. But they all point to the fact that Google is working hard to reduce the number of times searchers need to leave to get answers to their questions. For all the times that Google has said it’s not in the content business, it’s not hard to imagine a future where its mission to “organize the world’s information” goes way beyond spidering and linking and into algorithmically processing for answers instead of PageRank.

That — much more than news organizations’ previous complaints about Google — could put real pressure on the business models of news websites. It challenges ideas of how to navigate the link economy and what concepts like search engine optimization, fair use, and aggregation mean. And it sure looked like Schmidt pointed the way last night.

A dozen years later, all these questions are becoming more than rhetorical.
