SpaceX has filed trademark applications for the word "Starlink" to describe its planned satellite broadband network.

SpaceX filed applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on August 21 to have Starlink trademarked for "wireless broadband communication services," "high-speed wireless Internet access," and other services related to its upcoming satellite network.

The trademark applications were surfaced by a user on Reddit and then made the rounds in news articles. SpaceX is also seeking an additional trademark on "SpaceX" specifically for the satellite network, in addition to the SpaceX trademarks it already owns for aerospace launch vehicles, rockets, and services for launching payloads into space.

Nest adds new cameras and a wireless alarm system to its product suite

Ars Technica - September 20, 2017 - 9:35pm

Alphabet-owned Nest announced several new products today, all of them focused on home security. Two new cameras have been introduced—the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor and Nest Hello—along with Nest Secure, a multi-device home alarm system powered by motion sensors.

Both cameras are intended for outdoor installation, and they add facial-recognition capabilities via Google’s FaceNet technology. Nest’s cameras could already alert you if a human figure came into view, but FaceNet adds the ability to exempt trusted people, along with some other new functionality. Nest Secure is similar in basic concept to most home alarm systems you may have seen; while armed, it sounds an alarm if someone enters the home without disabling it. But it offers a couple of alarm-disabling alternatives to entering a passcode when you enter.

The key barrier to entry for Nest products remains: a full suite of them can be expensive to operate. It’s not because of the products’ purchase prices, but rather because most of the best features are only available with a subscription to the Nest Aware service. Let’s say you install a handful of Nest Cam IQ devices throughout your home and live video isn’t enough for you. You want to be able to look at video from last night to see if there was an intruder present. You can do that, but the video is stored in the cloud through Nest Aware.

Following recent news that Zika virus can lurk in semen for months, a pair of infectious-disease researchers got to wondering: how many other viruses can hang out down there?

With the intriguing question dangling, the ballsy researchers decided to do a study to figure it out—because, you know, why not?

Evolution on steroids: Chance ruled in building an estrogen receptor

Studying alternate realities has traditionally been the purview of physicists, cosmologists, and philosophers. Maybe theologians. But at the University of Chicago, biochemists, molecular biologists, and geneticists in Joseph Thornton’s lab are examining why things in biology have turned out as they have and not some other way. They note that “history leaves no trace of the roads it did not take” and ask: is the current state of things inevitable?

And, if it's not, it’s worth figuring out why things aren’t different—and whether the outcome could have been better than the solution life on Earth ended up with.

Remaking the past

By “things” here I mean proteins. For Thornton’s lab, this means the estrogen receptor and a related receptor that handles other steroid hormones like androgens, progestogens, and corticosteroids. These receptors bind their preferred steroid, then bind to specific DNA sequences and control the activity of a particular suite of genes. The DNA sequence that the estrogen receptor binds—called the estrogen response element—differs from the DNA sequence that the more generic steroid receptor sticks to, though only in two locations.
