#1
Stephen Becker
KP-1461, an experimental HIV drug already in a phase II trial, works so differently from other antiretrovirals that at first glance it looked like science fiction, and we found it hard to take seriously as a current possibility today. In fact this drug is highly credible, and based on elegant science that goes back at least 25 years. KP-1461 is the only antiretroviral in human use or testing that can eradicate HIV from laboratory cell cultures. No one knows how it will work in people -- but we might know by the second quarter of 2008, when the current phase II trial could be complete...

John S James
Suppose a major donor anywhere in the world could sponsor tens of thousands (or any number) of copies of a song, video, or any other digital "content"--letting tens of thousands of people in social networks just click to download free, with no registration ever, instantly paying the artists or a cause by the act of free downloading itself. And each sponsor can deliver a message to the thousands of anonymous end users who download from his or her contribution. We show how independent artists could market globally at no expense if people care about their work--offering an alternative to corporate monoculture...

Fundraising campaigns could be elaborate local or global contests or games to raise money for good causes--displaying financial results instantly, costing almost nothing, and letting donors, teams and individual fundraisers make their mark.

Why is fundraising so hard when millions of people want to help, and have plenty of surplus money between them, thousands of times what AIDS and health activism would need? How could we provide better opportunities for giving?

#9
John S James
During the first two weeks after release, prisoners in Washington State had 129 times the death rate from drug overdose, compared to other state residents--probably because they did not know how much less drug they could tolerate, after taking little or none of it in prison. Cardiovascular disease, homicide, suicide, cancer, and traffic accidents also caused excessive deaths.

#13
John S James
Lung cancer has a high death rate, especially with HIV in one group of patients studied recently. Researchers are finding that most of the fatalities are due to late diagnosis; as many as 80% of the deaths from lung cancer in the general population might be prevented by CT screening to find the tumors early. The patients with HIV were often relatively healthy, so doctors did not suspect that they had cancer.

John S James
Large doses of resveratrol (found in small amounts in red wine) made headlines recently for extending the lifespan of mice on an unhealthy diet. This and other substances found in some wines and foods may protect against cardiovascular disease or diabetes, and improve the functioning of mitochondria in cells (which could reduce certain adverse effects of HIV or the drugs used to treat it).
