Google Launches New App Called “Spaces” To Improve Sharing

Google announced on their official blog today a new application called “Spaces”, a tool for small group sharing. It’s like an instant Google+ group, but of course it’s not Google+.

Google says it built Spaces to make it easier for small groups to stay on topic because your sharing articles, pictures and videos right within the app. Google Chrome, YouTube and search are built in. The conversational view lets you see what the group is talking about without clicking to another app or platform, simplifying the conversation.

Google has also included a search to make finding any of the content you and others shared easy. The app is available for all mobile and desktop platforms.

Read more about the new “Spaces” app on the Google Blog.

Jake Gyllenhaal Reveals Which Beloved Director Called Him The “Worst Actor”

Anna Paquin Slams Body Shamers Who Called Her “Pregnant and Fat”

Anna Paquin walked the red carpet for her new film, The Good Dinosaur, this week. Twitter lit up shortly thereafter with comments about the actress that were less than kind.

Rather than hiding in a corner, Paquin slammed the body shamers, calling them out for their rude behavior.

“Fun fact: Wearing a dress that is not skintight=Pregnant/invites people 2 call u fat. I’m neither so thanks 4 that,” she wrote.

That wasn’t all Anna Paquin had to say either.

Anna Paquin’s black embroidered dress with full skirt looked lovely on her. She didn’t look pregnant and she most certainly didn’t look fat.

Lots of Twitter followers complimented Paquin on her looks after she slammed the shamers. That prompted her to Tweet yet another message.

Anna Paquin needn’t worry that fans felt she was fishing for compliments. When one looks as stunning as she did on The Good Dinosaur red carpet, they have no need to fish.

How sad that so many people feel it’s okay to share their unkind opinions on social media. People with so little to do should consider volunteering. Lots of nonprofits need people with nothing but time on their hands.

Michelle Duggar Against ‘LGBT’ People, Called Them ‘Child Predators,’ Own Son Josh Duggar Molested Children

Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame has a long history of speaking out against LGBT people. She has referred to them before as child predators. Meanwhile, she had a child predator living within her very own family. What’s wrong with this story?

Josh Duggar–the eldest of the 19 Kids and Counting brood–molested several young girls when he was a teen. Fox News reports that four of them were his own sisters.

Just about a year ago, Michelle Duggar recorded a robocall saying if ‘equal protection laws were passed for LGBT people in Fayetteville, Arkansas, their children would be exposed to child predators.’

“I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls. … We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child,” she said in the call.

Since word of Josh Duggar and his sexual molestations have come to light, Mike Huckabee has come to his defense. He posted a message on Facebook defending not only Josh, but Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, too.

Janet and I want to affirm our support for the Duggar family. Josh’s actions when he was an underage teen are as he…

It is unfathomable that Michelle Duggar could think of calling people child predators simply because they are LGBT, when she had an actual child molester who had lived under her very roof with the rest of her children. She and Jim Bob Duggar kept this under wraps for years.

Even worse than knowing your son is a child molester and keeping quiet about it is the fact that four of the five females he molested were his siblings–Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s own daughters. How can a parent think that’s okay?

TLC has reportedly taken 19 Kids and Counting off the air. Josh Duggar has resigned from his position in Washington, D.C. at the Family Research Council–an anti-LGBT group.

Four of the Duggar daughters–possibly Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger Duggar are living with the memory of what their brother did to them. So is one victim not related to the Duggar family.

Michelle Duggar has a lot of nerve calling out LGBT people.

Doesn’t the Bible say, “He who is without sin can cast the first stone?”

Michelle Duggar cast a stone.

And look what she and her family were hiding.

Leaked 2012 FTC Document Called Google A Monopoly, Recommended Litigation

An “inadvertently disclosed” report from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) labels Google a monopoly and appears to directly contradict the decision not to pursue legal action against the company. In early 2013 the FTC formally decided to close its antitrust investigation against Google…

Cancer Sample Handling Changes Called For By Doctors

In a column appearing this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), doctors have called on the medical community to change the way it handles cancer tissue samples. At issue is the rise of new gene sequencing technology, which traditional sample handling practices impede by damaging DNA.

“Deciding how best to obtain (tumor) samples and how best to process them for whole genome or exome sequencing is a pivotal yet unresolved issue with several layers of complexity,” said the column’s authors, who are from the Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI), a non-profit biomedical research organization. “As the new clinical applicability of genomics emerges at a fairly rapid rate, the field of pathology will arrive at a tipping point for a fundamental change in how cancer specimens are handled.”

The current methods for sample processing involve placing biopsy samples into a formaldehyde mixture called formalin, then placing them into paraffin. Using gene sequencing on samples prepared this way, say the doctors, is difficult because the chemicals involved damage the sample’s DNA.

“We need to completely rethink the way we have collected and stored cancer tissue samples for decades,” said Dr. Eric Topol, one of the column’s authors and director of STSI. “It’s becoming increasingly clear that obtaining an accurate map of a tumor’s DNA can be the key to determining the specific mutations that are driving a person’s cancer, how best to treat it and how likely it is to recur.”

The alternative the doctors recommend involves freezing a portion of samples, which preserves the tissue’s genetic coding. That procedure, however, would require larger biopsy samples and incur higher storage costs. The doctors point out, though, that patients would likely agree to more invasive biopsy procedures if it means better diagnosis and treatment.

“This type of change will require discussion about new operative standards, which will need the cooperation of surgeons, pathologists, ethicists and, of course, appropriate patient consents,” said Dr. Stanley Robboy, president of the College of American Pathologists. “It’s these types of implications we will need to consider and incorporate as a progressive healthcare agenda is moved forward.”
