Commonality despite exceptional diversity in the baseline human antibody repertoire, Published online: 21 January 2019; doi:10.1038/s41586-019-0879-y

A genetic study of the baseline human antibody repertoire, based on the circulating B cell populations of ten subjects, reveals universally shared antibody clonotypes within repertoires that are largely unique to the individual. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-019-0879-y

Real-time vibrations of a carbon nanotube, Published online: 21 January 2019; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0861-0

The thermal vibrations of a carbon nanotube are directly measured in real time with high displacement sensitivity and fine time resolution, revealing dynamics undetected by previous time-averaged measurements. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0861-0

Host protein mimics viral protein to hinder infection by Ebola virus, Published online: 21 January 2019; doi:10.1038/d41586-019-00182-1

Infection by Ebola virus can be fatal. The discovery of a human protein that mimics one type of Ebola protein and binds to another to suppress viral RNA production might aid the development of clinical treatments for the disease. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00182-1

Drop Stop

I have been using the Drop Stop ($20) for over 5 years and have a set for each car. Once installed (takes one or two minutes) I’ve forgotten about them, until I drop something between my seat and center console that would have otherwise fallen through the crack and under the seat or into the abyss. The Stop Drop stops the dropped item (pen, phone, money, wallet, etc.) from falling through. They come in black and tan, are made of soft pliable material that conforms to the space, have a slot for the seatbelt latch, and slide back and forth, unnoticeably, when adjusting the seat. They are easily removable and washable. I’ve given them as gifts and they have been very appreciated.
