not finding very good data on how much of the bacteria will survive freezing in yogurt.
This “ask the professor” column matches intuition.

However, these two sources say there’s no loss in viability… https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022030200749277?via%3Dihub

Holcomb et al. (1991) reported that both L. acidophilus and
Bifidobacterium were able to survive and grow in soft-serve frozen yogurt after freezing [Holcomb, J.E., Frank, J.F. and McGregor, J.U. (1991), Viability of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum in soft-serve frozen yogurt. Cult. Dairy Prod. J. 26, 4-5.]

pre-frozen yogurt can contain active cultures — just have to check the label.

TWiEVO 9: How to crash your gene drive
July 5, 2016
Hosts: Nels Elde and Vincent Racaniello
Guest: Jim Bull
Nels and Vincent speak with Jim Bull about the results of genetic models which suggest that the evolution of inbreeding in response to lethal gene drive might make population control difficult to achieve.

bikes in NYC

#Bike lanes are a sound public health investment
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-costbenefit-bike-lanes-idUSKCN11Z23A Each $1.3K for NYC provides 1 additional QALY for city residents

….But perhaps non-riders benefit more than riders (who are at risk for injury) cc @dspakowicz

New study of the economics of adding more bikes to NYC (ironically published in the journal “injury prevention”).
article: http://injuryprevention.bmj.com/content/early/2016/09/09/injuryprev-2016-042057.abstract

Every $1,300 New York City invested in building bike lanes in 2015 provided benefits equivalent to one additional year of life at full health over the lifetime of all city residents, according to a new economic assessment.
That’s a better return on investment than some direct health treatments, like dialysis, which costs $129,000 for one
quality-adjusted life year, or QALY, said coauthor Dr. Babak Mohit of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York.

Painting unprotected bike lanes into roads may not reduce injury and death, she said.

Research Parasites

Dara sharing http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe1516564 Deems #datascientists as “research parasites,” using another’s data for their own ends via @dspakowicz

QT:{{”
“A second concern held by some is that a new class of research person will emerge — people who had nothing to do with the design and execution of the study but use another group’s data for their own ends, possibly stealing from the research productivity planned by the data gatherers, or even use the data to try to disprove what the original investigators had posited. There is concern among some front-line researchers that the system will be taken over by what some researchers have characterized as “research parasites.””
