Hacker news

Whoa. This seems like pretty big news.

Creating an effective, long-lived hemo-filter and bioreactor in an implantable unit is amazing. Living via dialysis is a tough road – our friend Jim Moore suffered through it for years. With this device he could have had a much better quality of life. Good for UCSF and…science!

And this explains a lot. Russian bad actors have determined that deeply religious people are susceptible to believing things without supporting facts, a special kind of religious confirmation bias. So they feed them a Facebook diet of disinformation intended to create divisions among Americans. Brilliant but evil.

Both of these unrelated stories were found at Hacker News, one of my favorite sources for interesting news unlikely to be covered by mass media. Highly recommended.
