"Is curing patients a sustainable business model?" Goldman Sachs analysts ask

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/04/curing-disease-not-a-sustainable-business-model-goldman-sachs-analysts-say/?amp=1&__twitter_impression=true

One-shot cures for diseases are not great for business—more specifically, they’re bad for longterm profits—Goldman Sachs analysts noted in an April 10 report for biotech clients, first reported by CNBC.

The potential to deliver “one shot cures” is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically engineered cell therapy, and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies... While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow.

My son just texted me this take on 45 vs. Amazon:

Yesterday at lunch I said I hoped Pence would keep his mouth shut after he was sworn in and read the NTSB report outlining how many Amazon drones were found in the wreckage of AF1's engines.

Woman who allegedly carried out YouTube shooting is identified by police

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/04/03/youtube-shooter-identified-as-nasim-aghdam.html

The person who allegedly shot at least three people at YouTube's campus on Tuesday afternoon has been identified as Nasim Najafi Aghdam, according to senior law enforcement officials.

Police responded to YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, around 1 p.m. local time on Tuesday. Approximately 1,100 people work in the complex, which is about 20 miles away from Google's main campus in Mountain View.

The woman, who was 39 years old, is believed to have carried out the attack because of a domestic dispute, officials said. The authorities said terrorism did not appear to be a motive at this time.

From the Springdale, AR March for Our Lives:

We marched 6 or 7 blocks to US 71, the main highway through town, to stand with our signs. Not long afterward, a lady came by and spoke with one of the HS seniors leading the march. Then they both began passing out little cards to everyone.

It was from Waffle House and a coupon for a free waffle good until the end of September. Talk about supporting the young people. What a nice thing for them to do.
