Researchers are using bacteria-eating viruses to treat complicated lung ailments.

Musk Considered Launching His Own Social Network App Before Twitter Bid

Elon Musk wanted to buy Twitter from the beginning, not just sit on its board or remain a large, silent shareholder, and he considered launching a competing service before abandoning the idea to focus on a buyout, according to new details about the proposed $44 billion transaction provided in an SEC filing. The document, a proxy statement from Twitter's board urging shareholders to approve Musk's takeover, sheds light on Musk's first pursuit: Musk sincerely desired to acquire Twitter!

Specifically, he addressed claims that he may implant monitoring devices into individuals through vaccine. An absurd conspiracist hypothesis "The one about monitoring people, I don't know why they think I'm interested in knowing where people are — I still have to giggle at that one — but if it prevents people from being vaccinated, that's awful," Gates added.   The donor noted that conspiracy theories are "pleasant to click on" and that people are susceptible to "simple explanations," such as the idea that the vaccinations were manufactured for profit, rather than comprehending the science underlyin...
